Sacrifice the children! (so say teacher’s unions)

Trump Should Yank Federal Funds From Every School That Refuses To Open This Fall. Joy Pullmann – “As parents know well, online learning is generally a freemium product that, if it is offered, should come at a significant discount to taxpayers, not demands for more money during an induced recession.” … “Paying an average of $15,000 per year for every public schooled student is an absolutely ridiculous price for getting random worksheets, YouTube videos, chaos and confusion, and little personal attention.”

With no easy answer to reopening schools, educators face multiple dilemmas. Jackie Valley – “Kindergarten has so much more than just their letters and numbers,” she said. “It’s a lot more social emotion. It’s understanding what’s happening at school. It’s not being afraid at school.” … “the Nevada Education Association of Southern Nevada, which is the smaller of two local teacher unions, wrote Jara and the school board a letter last week saying its members are “categorically against” an in-person reopening.” Fear and panic are driving the discussion, not reason and evidence. Politics cannot be ignored, either.

LA Teachers Union Says Schools Can’t Reopen Unless Charter Schools Get Shut-Down, Police Defunded. Tyler Durden – “A major teachers union is claiming that the re-opening of schools in its district cannot occur without several substantial policy provisions in place, including a “moratorium” on charter schools and the defunding of local police.” … typical anti-American screed, it is.

When Will The Madness End? Jeffrey Tucker – “Underlying his brief comments were a presumption that there was nothing particularly unusual about this virus. We’ve evolved with them, and learned to treat them with calm and professionalism. What distinguished the current moment, he was suggesting, was not the virus but the unleashing of a kind of public madness. ”

“Eventually, people have and do come to their senses, but it is as Mackay said: people “go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.”

Stay Angry, Not Dispirited. Clarice Feldman – “I know that many of our readers are dispirited by all this insanity, and it does seem never ending. The conduct of people like the mayors of NYC, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, and Seattle, add to our growing feeling of national chaos. For a lot of political organizations, the Constitution and its promise of anti-discrimination, protections for property, and liberty seem to have no meaning.”

“Like baboons showing their rears to zoogoers, the election of President Trump caused the rotting institutions of America to reveal their least attractive features. The press has engaged in nonstop lying without remorse. The premier educational institutions have revealed their Marxist colors and disdain for the sifting and winnowing of ideas that once were their reason to be. The FBI, Department of Justice, and the courts have tipped their partisanship, and to their dishonor, the ethical grounding that once made them worthy of respect.

Why The Roger Stone Commutation Is Not As Controversial As The Outrage Mob Thinks. Jonathan Turley – “criticism of this commutation immediately seemed to be decoupled from any foundation in history or in the Constitution.” … “In reality, the commutation of Stone barely stands out in the old gallery of White House pardons, which are the most consistently and openly abused power in the Constitution.” … “Unlike many of these cases, there were legitimate questions raised about the Stone case.”

First Pelosi Wants to Pervert the Constitution, Now Nadler Thinks He Can Investigate Trump for Exercising Constitutional Power. Nick Arama – “At what point do they stop already? They will make a crime of something he clearly has the power to do, but they don’t care about reality.”

Phoenix Mayor Lied About Morgues Bringing In ‘Refrigerator Trucks’ To Store Overflow COVID Bodies. Tyler Durden – “Of course, it’s not difficult to imagine why Gallego made such a specious – and, some might argue, alarmist – claim” … politics first for the Left.

A suspicious fire at Mission San Gabriel and a curiously incurious press, parroting the left’s lies. Monica Showalter – “Sure, they’ll say it’s important not to jump to conclusions, but to not raise a few questions for a loss this momentous is dereliction of duty ,given how big a target this Mission was.”

It’s All About November 3. Roger Kimball – “The Democrats thought they could ride the tiger to victory. Instead, they will be consumed by the monster they created but could not control.”

“A new, flu-like virus is abroad in the land. The anti-Trump establishment goes to work: How can we blame it on Trump? He shuts down flights from China at the end of January: charge him with being racist and xenophobic. He consults experts. They tell him it is not a serious threat. He goes on television and says that: hysteria! Then he swings into action, mobilizes American manufacturing prowess and turns out more ventilators, protective gear, testing kits, and new therapies than anyone thought possible. The curve flattens. The political weapon that was COVID-19 falters. No problem. Declare a race war! Smash up the storefronts. Get everybody talking about racism all the time. Ignore the fact that the people overwhelmingly harmed by Black Lives Matter are inner-city blacks. Blame everything on Donald Trump.

The unremitting, monolithic wall of noise that has been crashing against Donald Trump since election day 2016 has gotten louder and louder, more cacophonous, more furious, more irrational. Everything is what it is, and not another thing. But the one thing that takes precedence over everything now is defeating Trump, which means defeating not only Trump himself but what he stands for—those 63 million voters who put him in office, for starters.

And just about now, a great chasm is opening up. The choice, they see, is not so much between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. It is between the America they love—that Donald Trump celebrates—and the out-of-control forces of anti-American hatred that, though he does not understand them, Joe Biden manages to blink and nod and gibber around.

the fundamental choice is not really Donald Trump or Joe Biden. It is civilization and America on one side, anarchy and woke tyranny on the other. The Democrats thought they could ride the tiger to victory. Instead, they will be consumed by the monster they created but could not control.

It’s for the children!
