Something Smells Rotten in Syria (and in Washington, too)

by Al Benson Jr.

By now almost everyone still breathing has to have heard about this gas attack in Syria. Everyone is screaming that Assad did it, but as is the case with the fake story of Trump and his Russian connections, I have not seen any real evidence yet. Emotional outbursts there have been in abundance, but let’s see some evidence. There was none with the “Trump and the Russians” scenario, so let’s see some with this gas attack that proves that Assad did it. They say that Assad has that sarin gas used in the attack. He probably does, but ISIS has it too, or at least some possibly watered-down form of it.

The reports I’ve heard say that Assad has been winning his war against ISIS. Not that the news media would ever report that. But, if that is the case, why would he then turn around and pull a bonehead stunt like this one that will set everything back for him and get the Americans mad at him? It makes no earthly sense!

And something else bothers me about all this. All of a sudden all the people in Washington that hated Trump’s guts; McCain, Pelosi, Schumer, and a whole batch of other slithery Leftist creatures who couldn’t say enough bad things about him re now, all of a sudden, staunchly in his corner and they just love what he is doing in Syria Does that tell you anything??? It tells me that they have finally found some way to co-opt him, whether through his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, which I have seen reports of, or in some other way. All of a sudden Trump is dealing with the very folks that, a month ago, were working to slit his political throat. And his core concept of making America great again  seems to be going by the wayside in favor of the neo-con’s “nation building” program in the Middle East–the exact same game Comrade Obama played so very well, as did Bush 2 before him.

Interestingly enough, on http://www.garynorth.com for April 8th, Mr. North noted: “Donald Trump campaigned on the promise he would ‘bomb the hell out of ISIS.’ Instead he bombed installations of the Syrian government. This was on April 6, 2017–one hundred years to the day after the House voted for war with Germany.” This gas attack has “false flag” written all over it!

Back when Slick Willie was in office and having his problems over “that woman” Monica Lewinsky, and there was talk of his impeachment, Clinton “suddenly” decided to bomb Iraq–with “the unanimous support of his national security advisers.” Given the body count of those who had disagreed with the Clintons over something or other, would they have dared to say anything else? According to an article on http://www.dailymail.co.uk  for August 26, 2016: “The strikes–known as Operation Desert Fox–were ordered the day after the House of Representatives issued  report accusing the president of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and ended the day the articles of impeachment were passed. Previous strikes in 1996, Operation Desert Strike, were ordered during a campaign finance scandal.” So it often seems that problems in the Middle East suddenly erupt when some scandal in Washington is about to erupt–and they are very convenient for focusing media and public attention on the Middle East, and away from the potential scandal problem. Understand, I am not accusing President Trump of anything, except possibly a lack of historical knowledge and probably taking bad advice from some family members, and those who have a vested interest in dragging us (and him) away from his “America first” agenda and back  into the New World Order agenda.

Consider this; there seems to be a growing possibility that this Susan Rice affair could turn out badly for Hillary and the other socialist Democrats and there has been mounting concern over that in the past couple weeks. How much have you seen in the prostitute press about that since this Syrian situation hit?

Mr. Trump has been a shrewd businessman (and I don’t mean that in a negative sense), but I don’t think he has yet grasped the totally devious nature of the political mind and how underhanded it can really be. That, and bad advice, for whatever reason, from his in-laws,  seems to be leading him down the New World Order’s garden path at this point. Let us pray the Lord will give him wisdom to see where all this is going, and that he might repent of it and return to his original vision–the one the voters put him into office to enact.

What About Hillary’s Security Clearance?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just read an interesting article on http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com for April 5th that stated: “A stunning report from Fox News indicates that the Obama administration granted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton  and six of her top aides access to top secret and classified information–even after she left the State Department in 2013, even after she announced a run for the White House in April of 2015, and even after FBI Director James Comey declared that Clinton and her staff had been ‘extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information’.” Seeing that Hillary and associates are above the law I realize none of this will make any difference, but it bugs me enough that I have to write about it anyway.

Knowing the Marxist proclivities of the Obama administration this should come as no surprise. With classified information in the hands of the Obama administration, the country’s enemies already had control of it, so if Hillary, accidentally or otherwise, spread some of it around–why who cared?

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa noted this and he said: “I have repeatedly asked the State Department whether Secretary Clinton and her associates had their clearances suspended or revoked to which the Obama administration refused to respond.”  No surprise here either. Obama continually “stonewalled” Grassley’s requests for this information. That tell you anything?  Grassley took note of this and passed this information on to the new Secretary of State under Trump, Rex Tillerson. He also observed to Tillerson that Clinton had asked for access to classified information because she was in the process of writing her memoirs (again).

How many times has this woman testified before some congressional committee or other that  she could barely remember her own name and that of her infamous husband, but any details over and above these seemed to totally escape her? Yet when it comes to writing yet another book (for which she will get millions) all of a sudden all the memories and details thereof come flooding back (at least those she wants us to know about).

Just a couple brief questions here: Why did she need access to classified information to write her memoirs? Was she planning on passing along some of that information to her readers? Fox News also asked some of these same questions so I am not alone. The Political Insider article noted: “Fox News reported, ‘The State Department has not yet responded to an inquiry from Fox News as to whether Clinton, or her staff…still have access to the classified and top-secret archives and systems’.”

Believe it or not, almost three months into a Trump administration, this question is still pending. Grassley is still wanting to know if the current Secretary of State agrees with the FBI determination that Hillary was “extremely careless” in dealing with classified information. He also wants to know–and this is the sixty-four dollar question–Has the State Department started to review the security clearances of Hillary or her aides?

Grassley asked that question, as noted in an article on The Hill on March 31st of this year. So it’s a legitimate question at this point. One can almost hear someone in the State Department shouting in reply: We have already cancelled Hillary’s security clearance tomorrow!  So, has Hillary’s security clearance and those of her aides been revoked at this point–and if not, why not??? That’s the other brief question.

The State Department has been a thorn in the sides of genuine patriots all the way back to the days of Alger Hiss. Maybe none of you all are old enough to remember him. If the name doesn’t ring any bells look him up on the Internet.

So we need to ask, in all honesty–even with a Trump administration–do we still have the same problems with the State Department that we have had in the past? What about Hillary’s security clearance??? Has it been revoked, or do we need to start asking our senators why it hasn’t been? Rand Paul might be a good one to ask about that. I’m sure he’d have a more genuine concern than many of the others, and he’d want answers too.

“Racist” Cows?

by Al Benson Jr.

We have been duly informed by the politically correct, the cultural Marxists among us, that anyone politically to the right of Ho Chi Minh or Fidel Castro is a “deplorable” racist. Evidence  for this accusation?  Well, who needs evidence? Just say it long enough and loud enough and people will believe it. The Social Justice warriors way over on the Far Left fringe have decreed it. Ain’t that enough? After all, who would even think of questioning “social justice” or its  provocateurs?

However, in recent days the social justice campaign seems to have reached new and more glorious  heights. According to the website Intellihub the animal rights group PETA has continued to add to its list of “unusual” claims, and this time they have put out a video that literally claims that drinking milk just might mean you are a closet racist. Intellihub recently said: “The group posted the video on Friday in a Tweet that reads, ‘Did you know that milk has long been a symbol used by white supremacists?”

Wow, I didn’t know that did you? Well, they say you learn something new every day (even if it is slightly off the wall). So now we have had the ultimate tool of the Far Right white supremacy crowd exposed for what it really is–Milk, white milk! Well, if it’s white it must be “racist” right?  I mean, everything white is racist isn’t it? Makes you wonder about snow doesn’t it?

So I thought, in view of this startling revelation that we ought to take this whole racist scenario one step further and expose yet another layer of deep-rooted racism–Cows!

I mean, after all, the brown cow eats green grass but she gives white milk, so it stands to reason, at least among the progressive Left, that the cow is racist too. Doesn’t it? What other logical conclusion could a devout cultural Marxist come up with? If she wasn’t racist couldn’t we, at least once in awhile, depend on chocolate milk from her? The fact that she continually provides only white milk must indicate that the cow, knowingly or not, has deep racist tendencies.  And what about her owner? He has to be a flaming racist too. Do we dare ask how many cows he has that only give white milk? Is there a right-wing conspiracy here among the agricultural set to flood the country with white milk? If so, this needs to be exposed. The Communist News Network should send out some hot-shot reporter, have him sneak around the dairy farm and get some samples of that white milk. Then he could have them tested for the amount of inherent racism they might contain. Anything over 50 grams per udderful would be enough to seal his journalistic career forever.

We must realize that this is a serious problem!  Racist milk from racist cows is flooding the country. Valiant anti-racists just can’t obtain brown, yellow, red, or black milk–all these miserable bovines today provide for us is this insipid, racist white stuff. Why it’s enough to gag a maggot!

The social justice folks need to start scratching around under the rocks and barrels to see if they can find a friend somewhere in Congress, one who might be ready to expose all this. Once they produce such a specimen he could introduce mandatory legislation nationwide that would force all daily farmers to inoculate their cows with something approved by the FDA that would turn the color of the milk given by cows into something besides white. I imagine, to the Flakes over on the leftist fringe, that would seem to be a reasonable solution to this horrible problem.

Seem to me I have seen an article or two in the local LameStream Media outlets that discussed in depth the traumatic experiences undergone by those that were forced to drink white milk. Having to drink white milk was more traumatic for them than someone having tipped over their little red wagons when they were three years old.

I know you can get chocolate and strawberry milk flavorings at the local super market, but even if you buy and use them, somehow it just isn’t the same when you realize the milk was white to begin with.

So there has to be some solution that could be introduced that would call for more federal regulation and at least one more layer of bureaucracy to ease the unemployment problems that Obama’s stimulus packages didn’t quite take care of.

I can see it now–pre-planned spontaneous street demonstrations all across the country, with people marching and carrying signs that say “White is Right; Strawberry is Red; and Chocolate is—whatever!” And you thought Trump’s Russian scenario was something!  Brother, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

A Little More Anti-Southern Media Propaganda?

by Al Benson Jr.

In getting on the computer to check my email the other day I ran across one of those classic surveys you often find on the Internet. This one listed all the different states in the country and purported to tell you which were the best ten states to live in and which were the ten worst states to live in

No doubt we have all seen this type of thing on the Internet from time to time. I don’t know if “survey” is the proper word to describe these things or not. They cover all manner of geographical topics–what are the ten best cities in the US to live in and what are the ten worst; what are the areas of the country that people are the most content in, or the least content in; what parts of the country have the cleanest air–state by state; what part of the country is the least racially prejudiced–state by state;  and what parts of the country are the most economically deprived–state by state.

Over the years I’ve checked out a batch of these just to see what conclusions they came up with, although after the first two or three I’d checked, I found there was a pattern to most of these. No matter what the subject covered was, the Southern states always seemed to end up at or near the bottom of the list. Northern “paradises” like New Jersey, New York, Michigan or Illinois always seemed to be close to or at the top of the list, while Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi or Alabama always seemed to bump along somewhere in the bottom dozen.

These “surveys” or whatever you want to call them leave the distinct impression that the frozen North is heaven on earth, while the South is such a gosh-awful place that no one in his right mind would ever go there if he didn’t absolutely have to.

I hate to burst the surveyors’ politically correct little bubble (well, not really) but I think they’ve got a lot of it backwards, a not uncommon event among the politically correct.

Outside a couple years in West Virginia, a brief sojourn for me in Oklahoma before I was married, and myriad trips to the Western states over the years, my family and I have spent most of our lives in the North. Now it wasn’t all bad and there were some really good folks we knew (who were not Yankee types), but I have to tell you, after fourteen years in Louisiana, I have no desire to go back north to live. We are more content in the South than ever we were in the North, and we’d only go back under extreme duress, not by happy choice. Our son has now come south and is over in East Texas, and he really likes Texas.

One place, however, that I do have to agree with these “surveys” is when they deal with economic issues. The South is always listed as the most economically barren part of the country, with more folks at or below the poverty level and more folks on food stamps (although I don’t know how they outdo Chicago and Detroit) than most other places in the nation. And there is a reason for that–and not an accidental one. It was not always so. In fact, up until the War of Northern Aggression, the South was the most prosperous part of the country. After the shooting part of that war was over the tables were turned. When “reconstruction”  (actually deconstruction) was visited on the South  by a “benevolent” Yankee/Marxist regime in Washington, the South was turned into the poorest part of the country. And again, need I stress that this was no accident? Didn’t think so.

For those that would appreciated a little in-depth study as to the reasons for this situation I would urge you to read Punished with Poverty–The Suffering South by James and Walter Kennedy and published by Shotwell Publishing LLC of Columbia, South Carolina. You can find it on Amazon and it isn’t all that expensive but it is informative. In one place the Kennedys quote a Northern newspaper that stated: We mean to conquer them, Subjugate them… Never would traitors be permitted to ‘return to peaceful and contented homes’; instead they ‘must find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children’.  Now I submit–here is Yankee charity at its highest point!

To bear witness to this, Francis Butler Simkins wrote in A History of the South that “As soon as the federal troops got a foothold in the South property was seized and sold for nonpayment under the Direct Tax Act…It is estimated that the federal taxes collected in the South in 1865-68 exceeded the entire amount the federal government and private Northern agencies spent on Southern relief and reconstruction during that period.” Or, as one Yankee general said in Louisiana, during the Red River Campaign in 1864: “We didn’t come to buy, we came to take.” And take they did! If this is accurate, and I have no reason to think it isn’t, then the Yankee/Marxists actually turned a profit on “reconstruction” over and above what they just stole outright.

All that to say this: before you blame Southern folks for being lazy and shiftless and whatever else you can come up with, read the Kennedy Brothers’ latest book and it will give you a very good indication as to why “it is what it is” in the South, even today.

The First Cultural Marxist Commandment–Thou Shalt Not Speak of Hillary’s Russian Connections (ever)

by Al Benson Jr.

We have been treated to an ongoing litany of mainstream media drivel about Donald Trump’s “Russian connections” until they are coming out of our ears. The prostitute press’ ongoing commentary about Trump’s love-fest with Putin and the Russians lhas been pushed beyond verbose. The one place it comes up short, however, is in the evidence department. But then, cultural Marxists don’t much care about that. Their job is to repeat the accusations ad nauseam . The scarcity of evidence is all the more reason for avoiding that touchy subject.

Recently, President Trump asked why the House Intelligence Committee isn’t looking into “the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia.” Now there’s a question the mainstream media isn’t exactly straining at the bit to answer. In fact they’d rather that question was ignored. A recent article on http://www.conservativetribune.com  stated that: “In terms of the ‘big Uranium’ remark, Trump appears to be referring to Uranium One, a Canadian company whose investors donated millions to the Clinton Foundation. According to Breitbart, Hillary Clinton’s State Department would later approve a sale of a majority stake in Uranium One to Rosatom, Russia’s state energy company.” You probably missed that on the daily evening “newscast.” The Conservative Tribune article also observed that “The New York Times also reported in 2015 that right after Rosatom announced its intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, former President Bill Clinton was given $500,000 to give a speech in Moscow from a Kremlin-linked Russian investment bank. That bank was also promoting Uranium One stock.” The article speculated that the reason none of this has been investigated is that any government committee is not all that interested in those that lost the last election. The article pointed out that “…while we look at Trump’s Russia ties with a fine-tooth comb, almost no investigation has been done on the Clinton Russian ties.” Needless to say, the Clintons love to have it so. That should change! Will it???

In a brief article on http://www.infowars.com writer Shepard Ambellas wrote on March 29, 2017 that: “On January 23, 2016, I exposed Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Russian State in an article titled, Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore,”

This article was originally published on http://www.intellihub.com  back in January of 2016 and is 13 pages long, so I obviously cannot reproduce all of it here. However it is still on the Internet and I would encourage people to go to Intellihub and read the article in its entirety.  This is information that I am afraid no congressional committee will ever get around to dealing with because the agenda is to make Trump look bad and totally ignore all the really egregious things Hillary has done as though they did not exist. In other words–“down the memory hole” 101!

However, I will pick out a couple goodies from Mr. Ambellas’ article to comment on because they also have to do with other things I have written about in the past couple years. For instance, Mr. Ambellas declared: “As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge–a whole lot more–and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.  As you may or may not know, on Jan 4 Intellihub reported that the Hammond’s Ranch and other ranchlands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government but foreign entities as well…Now, after further investigation, more pieces of the puzzle have been put in place and you’re not going to believe what characters are involved.” Well, on the other hand, if you know how the political scene works in the Swamp known as Sodom on the Potomac, you can figure some of this out. And remember, the situation at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge was what got Arizona rancher Lavoy  Finicum killed because he, supposedly, pulled a gun on federal agents. That pseudo-act got him shot nine times.

Mr. Ambellas continued: “…one of them is currently being investigated by the FBI and is also running on the Democratic ticket in hopes of becoming the next President of the United States. That’s right, you guessed it–none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton of the notorious Clinton crime family. Hillary and her foundation are implicated in the dastardly scheme along with the Russian State Nuclear Energy Corporation, Rosatom, and a few dubious Canadian elite…Rosatom is ranked #2 globally in uranium reserves and #1 globally for annual uranium extraction…You see, Rosatom wanted to expand their operations into America and needed a way in. So, in 2013, Rosatom acquired a Canadian company named Uranium One as part of a sinister side deal which involved multiple parties. Ultimately the deal opened a typically secure and closed-door, thus allowing the Russians to salt their way into the continental United States as part of a vast and extensive plan to mine Uranium out of states like Wyoming and Oregon. The deal was essentially brokered by Hillary and was run through the Clinton Foundation using Canadian-backed contributions as a cover. With one flourish of a pen, just like that, the bitch sold out the American people and one-fifth of America’s uranium resources to the Russians.”  There was even an article reported for the New York Times in April of 2015 which explained how this worked. Probably written in such a way that the average person remained totally clueless!

And Mr. Ambellas observed that “Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee compsed of representatives  from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton…And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One,  Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.” Almost sounds like a “sell-out by committee.”

But just remember, as hopefully you will go and read the Intellihub article, that we really don’t have to be concerned about any of this. After all, Congress isn’t. What Hillary and Husband did to make big bucks and give our adversaries a major uranium boost over this country really shouldn’t be any big concern to us because it surely is not a big concern to any congressional committee. Were it suddenly to become a concern of some congressional investigative committee, then that committee would be forced to break the first cultural Marxist commandment–Thou shalt not speak of Hillary’s Russian Connections.  You are only permitted to speak, at length, of the alleged Russian connections of Donald Trump and all his friends and family going back for at least five generations. The lack of evidence for these allegations is totally irrelevant.  This is the only “textus receptus” that will be allowed. Maybe we should start contacting our Congress persons that claim to represent us in Washington and asking them why this is.

Ryan Pushed “Obamacare Lite” and it Flopped!

by Al Benson Jr.

After John Boehner left as Speaker of the House the Republicans were, supposedly, going to replace him with a real “conservative” who would be truly concerned with the will of the people. After lots of backroom dealing, we got Paul Ryan instead. He was touted as a “conservative” but that was a pile of West Texas cow chips, as he turned out to be little more than a water carrier for Comrade Obama.

Comrade Ryan, oh, pardon me, I meant Speaker Ryan, has long been a part of the Ruling Establishment, concerned with preserving the status quo (stiffing the public), which is one reason he never supported Donald Trump in his presidential bid. Trump just wasn’t one of the “good old boys” and if, by some fluke, he won, Ryan was going to do nothing whatever to help him along because he took his orders from the Ruling Establishment of which he is a part. And their plan has long been to derail Trump by whatever means possible, be it by far-out Russian conspiracy theories about Trump cavorting around with every Russian despot back to the Czar, or whatever. And I have to be honest, it’s the “whatever” that bothers me.

Trump had promised before the election that he would repeal and replace Obamacare, and up to this point, it seems as though Trump has been trying to fulfill the promises he made to the American people–something I have never seen any candidate  do in my lifetime. But when it came to replacing Obamacare,  Trump seemed to lean on Paul Ryan to handle this and it seems that Ryan already had a plan that he said would do the trick. Well, guess what? It didn’t. I have not read any of the ins and outs of Ryan’s “replacement” bill, but from comments I have seen from others who did, it seemed like he was replacing as little of Obamacare as possible and retaining, in some form, as much of it as he could. This would have been so typical for the “conservative” Ryan that anyone who has watched him should have expected it. A major part of Ryan’s chore as Speaker of the House has been to preserve as much of the status quo as possible while giving the appearance of helping to dismantle it. A thorny chore, but so far he’s been up to it.

However, he health care “replacement” bill did not fool too many people. Of course the Democrats were expected to vote against anything that might even minimally weaken the health care diktat of their cherished Barack. But then, the Democrats today are, to all intents and purposes, further to the Left now than the Communist Party dared to be forty years ago, so what else is new?

However, there were some Republicans, some of them in what they call “the Freedom Caucus” that could see through this Obamacare remake and they were not going to vote for it–thank heaven! As much as I want to see Obamacare repealed, and as much as Mr. Trump seems to want to see it repealed and replaced, this bill of Paul Ryan’s was not the vehicle that would have done that. It preserved more than it replaced–and I’m sure that was the intent.

There have been calls now for Ryan to step down as Speaker of the House, and, given his conservatively insipid performance since he’s been up there, I think that’s a capital idea. Only if he does, this time the Republicans need to do a lot better than just picking another RINO like they did the last time!

If Mr. Trump is really serious about “draining the swamp” he is going to find out that many of the major contributors to the perpetuation of the swamp are in his own party and they are trying to deep six his efforts every bit as much as Hillary, Soros, and the rest of the Lefties are, because, in the final analysis, they all work for the same people, and the party labels are superfluous.  We should pray for wisdom and  discernment for the President. He will need all he can get, lest the Judas goats overwhelm him!

Just Another Day in Public School in Maryland

by Al Benson Jr.

And they wonder why people want to get their kids out of these public schools!

According to an article on The Horn News for March 23rd: “An innocent 14-year old girl was brutally raped in a Maryland school bathroom by two illegal immigrants last week–and the mainstream media has completely ignored it.” Well, that comes as no surprise, I mean, come on now. Had she been raped by two white American kids it would have been world news for days, but because it is, allegedly, two illegal immigrants that did it, this is hardly a newsworthy event, and the scumbag media will make sure it stays that way if they can. The two who “allegedly” committed this rape were here, illegally from someplace in Central America.

Parents in Montgomery County, Maryland, especially in the town of Rockville, where this happened are really ticked, as they should be. They turn their kids over to these intellectual meat grinders we call public schools and this is what they get back–and they’ve paid for it all with their property taxes! One parent, anonymously, (possibly for fear of retaliation) told Fox News “I know that if this country enforced the laws that are already on the books these two young men would not have been here and this rape…would not have occurred.” You can thank our former president (who is busy trying to tear down the administration of our current president) for this mess regarding illegal immigration. He wanted them all here (hopefully to, at some point, replace Americans).

Another member of the community was very critical of the school’s response, (which we will get to in a minute).  She said: “You have young adult males that really do not have our culture and you are putting them in the same classroom as our 14-year old girls and they are saying ‘There’s nothing we can do about that–sorry’.” Well maybe the public school can’t, or won’t, do anything, but the parents can. They can start removing their kids from this horrendous system. Would to God some of them would get that message. There are several alternatives to public schools and not all of them are that expensive.

Of course then the Rockville School Superintendent  will probably label them as “racists.”  And, in an article for March 23rd on http://townhall.com  written by Katie Pavlich, that’s exactly what happened.  According to the Town Hall article: “Montgomery County Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith is accusing parents of racism and xenophobia. He also claims threats are being made against students and schools…While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation,  far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails. MCPS is working with law enforcement to identify those who are making threats toward our students and schools.  This behavior will not be tolerated in our community.” Which students are being threatened? Sounds almost as if Dr. Smith is more concerned about parental reaction to this rape than he is about anything else. After all, bad publicity for the public school system doesn’t help to encourage record attendance does it? It also seems that some parents have been protesting outside of Smith’s office recently. One man said he took his daughter out of school last year because of an “unsafe environment.” It sounds like, with comments such as that, this has not been the first problem of this sort in the public schools in Rockville and surrounding environs.

Even the Governor of Maryland is looking for some answers about this situation. The governor asked: “Why is an 18-year old man in a class with 13 or 14-year old girls? Why was his status not known to those folks? Why was he allowed to enter the country after he was picked up for illegally crossing the border–both of them? So there are a lot of questions…” And the governor does not seem to feel that the school board in Montgomery County has been all that forthcoming in answering those questions. He said, flat out, “Not only have they refused to provide any information to us, but they’ve refused to provide information to the state Board of Education, which specifically requested more information.”

Just another typical day in the public schools in Maryland–and how many other places around the country? How much of this sort of thing goes on in public schools across the country that we never hear about and that the media will never cover outside of bare minimum local coverage that is forced upon them?

If you’d like to get some idea of the real public school situation, and the history of that situation,  get hold of a book called Crimes of the Educators by Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman, published by WND (World Net Daily) Books in 2014. After you have read that you should be seriously ready to consider taking your kids out of public schools–forever!

I have never forgotten the phone conversation I had with a public school teacher in New York when I worked for a home school organization in the Midwest. She called us wanting information on how to home school her daughter. She told me: “I’m in this school everyday so I know what goes on–no way is my daughter going to school here.”
