Texas Takes Matters Into Their Own Hands And Takes Major Action Against Hillary – FINALLY!

Published

on

Texas is almost a country unto itself. They are independent on pretty much all issues and do not tend to go the way of the liberal coastal states. One area that shows that propensity is education. And right now, Texas is proposing something very controversial.

I saw a piece of news this weekend and at first, I laughed about it. After consideration, I’m not laughing anymore. Texas is taking things into their own hands and proposing a huge change to their textbook curriculum. They want to remove Hillary Clinton from their texts. She will simply hate that.

The Texas State Board of Education took a preliminary vote on Friday to remove former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from social studies books in an effort to “streamline” the curriculum. They also want to remove Barry Goldwater, who many see as the father of conservatism, and Helen Keller. Texas just had a big blowup concerning the teaching of the Alamo’s history and thankfully that recounting of events won’t change for students.

From The Daily Wire:

“Two of the teachers involved in making the recommendations regarding what should be cut from the curriculum told the Dallas News that students are required to learn about so many historical figures that it prevents real learning from taking place.

“The group tasked with making the recommendations came up with criteria to rank historical figures so that students would only have to focus on the “essential ones.”

“The Dallas News reports that the criteria, “asked questions like, ‘Did the person trigger a watershed change’; ‘Was the person from an underrepresented group’; and ‘Will their impact stand the test of time?'”

“The maximum possible score that a historical figure could earn was 20 points. Clinton only garnered 5 points while Keller earned 7 points.”

Isn’t this a subjective way to determine who is ‘essential’ and who isn’t in history? As far as real learning goes, that doesn’t happen right now. My children learned far more about American history when I homeschooled them. We aren’t paying teachers to make things easier for themselves… we are paying them to adequately teach our children.

Hillary Clinton probably only gets a passing mention in history textbooks as Bill Clinton’s first lady. But as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama, she certainly should be focused on as a cautionary tale of how not to fill that role – I give you Benghazi and Libya in general. Then she was the first female presidential nominee from a major political party and history should also cover her scandals.

Let’s not edit history, let’s teach the good, the bad and the ugly. However, lesson plans that focused specifically on Clinton and her role as a “significant political and social leader” are set to be removed, eliminating some 30 minutes of classroom time. I tend to agree with that part. She was no leader – but she should still be in the history books.

Removing specific figures from the education curriculum does not mean that they are prohibited from being taught, just that it is no longer mandatory to include them in teaching material. That all but guarantees they will disappear into obscurity.

From The Daily Caller:

“The Dallas Morning News reported that the decision, which will come to a final vote in November, comes as the result of a ranking exercise completed by 15 members of the State Board. A number of historical figures — including Clinton, Helen Keller, Sam Houston, Thurgood Marshall, and Sandra Day O’Connor — were ranked on a scale of 1-20 on their historical importance.

“Board members went through a series of questions to rank each historical figure. Questions included “Did the person trigger a watershed change”; “Was the person from an underrepresented group”; and “Will their impact stand the test of time?”

“Clinton was selected for removal after receiving just five points, and Helen Keller, who received a score of seven, was also marked for removal from the curriculum.”

A committee also recommended removing the late evangelist Billy Graham, but another committee, with direction from the board in June, reinstated the reference. Graham scored a four on their scale.

I contend that Barry Goldwater, San Houston, Helen Keller, and Thurgood Marshall should all be included. Even Sandra Day O’Connor should not be dropped. Why the sudden cleansing of social studies? Yes, I know there are time limits… but there are many grades where this could be fitted in or it could be placed in extra-credit studies of some sort.

Heck, drop some of world history and add more American history, especially on the Constitution and founding fathers. Many schools no longer teach that at all. Many Americans don’t even realize that our founding is now in many curriculums no longer required as a subject and hasn’t been for many years.

The older I get, the more important history seems to me. Our children will never learn what to avoid if they don’t learn from our previous mistakes and successes. A decision will not be finalized until November, but I would hope that Texas will choose not to selectively drop pieces of history in the name of classroom expediency.

Yes, put Clinton in the proper context. Teach children what she was really all about. Don’t whitewash Clinton’s tainted record by dropping it to hide what kind of person she was. And don’t go down the rabbit hole of historical censorship.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
