Blue State Blues: My Zionist School Is Now a Muslim Academy

Blue-State-BluesOn Monday, I had the opportunity to visit the Muslim Community Center Academy, a new Islamic elementary school in the Chicago suburb of Skokie, my old home town. The MCC recently opened in the same building that once housed the Solomon Schechter Day School, the Jewish religious school I attended from second through eighth grade–the place where I first felt a personal connection to Zionism, Israel, and the Hebrew language.

Solomon Schechter closed its doors for two reasons. One is that Chicago’s Jews have slowly migrated outwards, leaving the city and inner suburbs for distant, more affluent areas further north. Some children who once would have attended Solomon Schechter in Skokie now commute to what used to be its sister school in Northbrook.

The second reason is that non-Orthodox Jews–i.e. the majority of the American Jewish population–have long since stopped investing in Jewish education. They will donate to other philanthropic causes, but have far less interest in studying Talmud or practicing Jewish rituals. Holly Rosenberg, Schechter’s principal, once noted with some frustration that Jewish donors were eagerly contributing millions of dollars to the Illinois Holocaust Museum nearby, but were doing little to ensure the continuity of the present-day local Jewish community.  Read more at Breitbart.com.

Lois Lerner Tries Busting Into Neighbor’s Home to Avoid Questions

In this video, the Daily Surge’s Jason Mattera confronts former IRS official and current pension collector Lois Lerner, who has demonstrated that she handles targeting just fine when she holds the bow and arrows, shows that when the apple on her head – well, not so much.  Watch the video which builds to a climax and read the story below.

Lois Lerner attempted to bust into a neighbor’s home uninvited, in a desperate attempt to avoid answering questions about her involvement in the targeting of conservative groups.

Jason Mattera, author of the explosive new book CRAPITALISM: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars, recently caught up with the disgraced former IRS official in her ritzy neighborhood outside Washington, D.C.

Mattera, who publishes the Daily Surge, asked Lerner if she had any regrets for her role in the ongoing IRS corruption case, and if she wanted to take the opportunity to give a genuine apology to conservatives for using the force of government to harass and single them out.

But, similar to her testimony before Congress where she pleaded the fifth, Lerner didn’t show any remorse, and, on a more latent level, showed her disregard for people’s privacy rights in general. In the video above, you can see Lerner fleeing from Mattera as she rushes through what appears to be a random person’s front yard.  Read more at dailysurge.com.

Megyn Kelly Grills Jen Psaki over Whether Obama Policy Made Iraq Worse

Published on Oct 2, 2014 by HotNews

Megyn Kelly faced off with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki tonight over claims by former Obama Cabinet official Leon Panetta that withdrawing troops from Iraq may have caused the current chaos going on in that country. Kelly pressed Psaki on exactly why President Obama didn’t want to leave a residual force of several thousand troops behind in Iraq.

Psaki insisted that these accounts of what happened three years ago were not based on facts, arguing that the U.S. couldn’t simply force all those troops on a sovereign nation, and troops didn’t have the protections they needed.

Psaki also told Kelly that even if there was a residual force, “it would not have prevented” what’s occurred in Iraq over the past few months. Kelly just kept pressing her on why Obama isn’t accepting responsibility for this decision, when during a 2012 debate, he denied wanting a status of forces agreement.

The BEST Idea for Improving White House Security?

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held hearings  Tuesday on the many security breaches that have recently occurred at the White House.  Of all the suggestions offered by members of Congress, perhaps the one offered by Rep. John Mica (R FL) was the best: “Have you heard of these guys?”

I.C.E. – The Department of Waiting Around

Missing-Illegals

Attribution: Rick McKee, The Augusta Chronicle

DHS secret revealed: Tens of thousands of illegals released during the border crisis didn’t show up for their immigration hearings.

Of course they didn’t. Who thought they would? This is precisely what amnesty shills have in mind when they demand “due process” for illegals. You’re detained, you’re given a date to meet with immigration agents or appear before an immigration judge to decide whether you’ll be deported, and then you’re sent on your merry way into the United States — never to be seen by the state again. The point of “due process” is to give illegals an easy way to avoid the process. DHS understands this.

So rest easy. Our immigration system is working exactly the way it’s supposed to. Read more at hotair.com.

Obama Defends Islam, Smacks Israel, American Racism at UN

Obama UN

On Wednesday, on the first anniversary of President Barack Obama’s speech to the United Nations in which he called for ouster of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, Obama attempted to rally support for his airstrikes against Assad’s terrorist opposition. Taking on issues ranging from Iran to Russia, from Ukraine to Syria, from global warming to Ebola, Obama pledged to utilize American might in service to the United Nations, speaking grandly of the beauty and power of the world’s least effective and most morally bankrupt international institution.

Obama opened with a Dickensian world of Manichean opposites:

Mr. President, Mr. Secretary General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentlemen: we come together at a crossroads between war and peace; between disorder and integration; between fear and hope. Read more at breitbart.com.

Happy Constitution Day

Constitution Day

by Daniel Horowitz  * 17 Sep 2014, 5:53 AM PDT

Today, we celebrate the 227th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution, but so many people will never know it. Because many Americans never studied why our founding documents are so unique, and they never learned the importance of our Constitutional Republic.

This lack of appreciation for our Constitution is why our original system of government is hardly recognizable. Most Americans living in the 21st century fail to appreciate the superiority of the American system of government. After all, there are many “liberal democracies” in the world that are not governed by dictators or monarchs, what is so unique about our form of democracy?

But the gradual erosion of freedom in this country over the past half century, culminating with the Obama presidency presents us with an opportune moment to hearken back to our funding principles and explore the uniqueness of our Constitutional Republic as it was originally conceived.

Breaking: By Sharyl Attkisson, The Daily Signal

New Benghazi allegation puts spotlight on Hillary Clinton confidants, alleged after-hours document review.

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

California Senate Passes Bill to Indoctrinate Children on President Obama

Schools ProtestOnce upon a time, schools taught children about the brave founding fathers. They taught kids about the historical bravery and wisdom of Abraham Lincoln. The history books were filled with stories from America’s past that made it clear where we had come from, instilling the values and virtues that conspired to make this the greatest country the world has ever known.

Sadly, those days seem to be behind us. A new bill out of California has just passed a final Assembly vote, encouraging state schools to begin teaching about the historical significance of President Barack Hussein Obama. A curriculum that would theoretically go into effect even before Obama is out of office will, the bill hopes, teach students about 9 wonderful aspects of this significant administration.

Naturally, the bulk of the outlined recommendations are geared towards illuminating the racial context of the 2008 election. Democrat Senator Holly Mitchell says that it’s important for students to learn about “overcoming our nation’s past to elect our first black president.”

The recommendations are outlined as follows:

(a) The election of Barack Hussein Obama to the office of President of the United States was a historic step in the effort towards equality in the United States.
(b) Before the Civil Rights Movement, intimidation and physical violence prevented millions of African Americans from voting and alienated them from the electoral process.
(c) The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was a civil rights victory that inspired more ethnic minorities to register to vote and pursue elected office.
(d) Barack Obama attended Harvard Law School where he became the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review.
(e) After law school, Barack Obama worked to fulfill the spirit of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by encouraging people to register to vote.
(f) Barack Obama was first elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996 and to the United States Senate in 2004.
(g) Senator Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States and first African American President on November 4, 2008, and was sworn in on January 20, 2009.
(h) In honor of his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples, President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
(i) President Obama was reelected on November 6, 2012, and was sworn in for his second term on January 20, 2013.

While it’s understandable that Obama’s election might get a mention in the history books for the historical precedence, this seems more like an outline for a full chapter on the man. If that’s going to be the case, perhaps some additional letters should be added to the curriculum.

California School District Recommendations – Balanced Amendment

If we’re going to teach students about President Obama, let’s make sure we take a good look at what the man has done with his historical presidency.
