The days of a holiday in Europe are over. Americans should now consider all of Europe as "off limits"

“Suicide bombing.” “Axe attack on a train.” “Fatal machete attack.” “Priest’s throat cut.” “Mall shooting rampage.” All that just since a vehicle plowed through hundreds of people on the streets in Nice, France. Is there any end to the madness?

No one came to the aid the European people as they cried out about the obscene way in which Middle East refugees were being allowed to storm into the country, as countless women were raped and culture clashes reached fever pitch and many areas became too dangerous to go to anymore.

Now, Muslim radicals, ISIS thugs and lone wolf sympathizers are striking out all across Europe. And it is happening so quickly that the media can’t even cover it all; people have little sense of how far the violence is spreading.

Mass murder and shocking acts of terrorism have become commonplace – and are happening on a

Europe approaches civil war!


Muslims attack a priest saying mass!

Meanwhile in the U.S. Clinton's VP pick Tim Kaine, calls for the legalization of all illegal immigrants as he fails to distinguish between Latinos and Muslims. Kaine's proposal

All of this brought by halfwitted politicians who will say or do anything for a vote.

Half of the teachers are virtually illiterate?

APOLOGIZED AND RAN AWAY


I know allot of teachers and think they are pretty smart people. Then I thought, there are allot of teachers I don't know. Maybe Rauner was trying to say something. Perhaps his comments were taken out of context. Then just as fast, in what has become his typical wimpy self, Rauner is on TV apologizing for...........trying to have a conversation? The full text of what he wrote is below as reported in the Chicago Tribune.


What kind of leadership is that? He is the governor in a state where the quality of education in the largest school district, is questionable at best. He speculates as to what the problems could be and as soon as he is challenged he apologizes and runs away.


So what is the truth? Do we have a problem with the quality of some of our teachers? Are problem teachers being protected by the huge bureaucratic CPS? Are we doing everything we can to properly educate the children or are we turning a blind eye to the problem?

Gov. Bruce Rauner once told some of Chicago's wealthiest and most influential civic leaders that half of Chicago Public Schools' teachers "are virtually illiterate" and half of the city's principals are "incompetent," according to emails Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration released Thursday under a court order.
Rauner made the assertion five years ago when he was a wealthy private equity executive and an active participant in Chicago school reform. His emails were part of a discussion with affluent education reform activists connected to the nonprofit Chicago Public Education Fund, including Penny Pritzker, now U.S. commerce secretary; billionaire hedge fund manager Ken Griffin; Chicago investment executive Mellody Hobson; and Helen Zell, wife of billionaire real estate magnate Sam Zell.
"Teacher evaluation is critically important, but in a massive bureaucracy with a hostile union, where 50% of principals are managerially incompetent and half of teachers are virtually illiterate, a complete multi-dimensional evaluation system with huge subjectivity in it will be attacked, manipulated and marginalized — the status quo will prevail," Rauner wrote in a December 2011 email arguing for a strong system of teacher and principal evaluations in the district. "It's much more critical that we develop a consistent, rigorous, objective, understandable measure and reporting system for student growth upon which all further evaluation of performance will depend."
Asked on Thursday about the governor's characterization of Chicago educators, Rauner spokesman Lance Trover issued an apology on the governor's behalf. Chicago Tribune

France has a history of snowflake leadership. This is the result.

BAD FOR FRANCE

84 dead, including many children. Their only crime is wanting to watch some fireworks in a county with a government that tries to justify colonialism. Current French policies re Algerians and Tunisians will eventually lead to the collapse of France. Changes must be made. Sadly, I doubt France has the political will to make those changes as they have not been hit hard enough,yet. 

Changes should include:
  • Redefine French citizenship
  • Roundup the non-citizens and ship them back to N. Africa
  • Secure the borders

A Call for a Black Migration back to the South

Babu Omowale, the so-called national minister of defense for the People’s New Black Panther Party, says his group and allied organizations have their sights set on establishing “our own government in a nation within a nation.”

Omowale was speaking in an interview set to air Sunday night on this reporter’s talk radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and News Talk 990 AM in Philadelphia.
Omowale used the interview to claim five states as belonging to the “Black Nation”: Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia.
The revolutionary stated: “We just need to start migrating back to those states and taking control of the economics in those states. If black people move in, most definitely white people will move out. So it’s not a hard process for us to have our own country within a country.”
Omowale is also co-founder of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, a black militant gun group named after Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton. According to reports, Dallas shooter Micah X. Johnson “liked” the Huey P. Newton Gun Club and Omawale has said that

Changes in the Catholic Mass

Vatican Liturgy Chief asks all priests and bishops to face east for Mass, faithful to kneel for Communion

LONDON, July 5, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Speaking at a conference on the liturgy in London yesterday, Cardinal Robert Sarah, the highest authority on the topic in the Catholic Church under Pope Francis, asked all bishops and priests to adopt the ancient posture in the Mass where the priest faces the tabernacle along with the congregation, rather than facing the people. He asked that the posture be adopted by Advent of this year, which begins November 27. During the same talk, Cardinal Sarah encouraged all Catholics to receive Communion kneeling. During the talk, the Vatican’s liturgy chief revealed that Pope Francis had asked him to “continue the liturgical work Pope Benedict began.”
The announcement was immediately recognized by Catholic Herald deputy editor Dan Hitchens as “the biggest liturgical announcement since Benedict XVI’s 2007 motu proprio Summorum Pontificum gave greater freedom for priests to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass.”
Vatican watchers are particularly stunned that Pope Francis, who is regarded by many as a liberal, has encouraged a more traditional approach to liturgy. Yet Cardinal Sarah said, “Our Holy Father Pope Francis has the greatest respect for

Dallas

The lack of law enforcement and the collapse of law and order is a signal to certain malcontents that it is ok to strike out at the police. This all has started at the top. 

Changes at the top must be made.

Judge Jeanine Pirro on Hannity - Comey Has ' Destroyed Reputation ' of F...

Wow

2 incidents in the past 48 hours

1. I was parked on a busy arterial street in our neighborhood when I observed a pizza delivery man half-ass park his car on the opposite side of the street facing oncoming traffic. The ass end was sticking out into a lane and the flashers were on as he ran into a building. Next came a squad, they passed the pizza guy and did a u turn. They came back, glanced at the car and just kept going in a non emergency manner.

2. A presidential candidate under investigation for mishandling classified information is cleared of any criminal wrongdoing by the nation's highest law enforcement official. 

Makes you wonder where our country is going when the laws are just completely ignored by the people hired to enforce the laws.

What were they doing on that plane for a half hour?



EITHER IT WAS A QUICKIE OR THEY WERE DISCUSSING THE CRIMINAL CASE INVOLVING HILLARY. EITHER ONE IS BAD. LYNCH SHOULD RESIGN. 
WASHINGTON — Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, conceding that her airport meeting with former President Bill Clinton this week had cast a shadow over a federal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s personal email account, said Friday that she would accept whatever recommendations that career prosecutors and the F.B.I. director make about whether to bring charges in the case.
“I will be accepting their recommendations,” Ms. Lynch said in an appearance at the Aspen Ideas Festival. She said that “the case will be resolved by the same team that has been working on it from the beginning.”
The attorney general said she had decided several months ago to defer to the recommendations of her staff and of the director of the F.B.I. because her status as a political appointee sitting in judgment on a politically charged case would raise questions of a conflict of interest.
The meeting with Mr. Clinton, she acknowledged, only deepened those questions, and she said she felt compelled to publicly explain her reasoning to try to put concerns to rest.
“I think that people have a whole host of reasons to have questions about how we in government do our business, and how we handle business and how we handle matters,” Ms. Lynch said. “And I think that, again, I understand that my meeting on the plane with former President Clinton could give them another reason to have questions and concerns.”
While she insisted that the meeting was a purely social encounter, Ms. Lynch said, “I certainly wouldn’t do it again.”
Ms. Lynch described the questions raised by her meeting as personally distressing for her because they stained the reputation of the Justice Department. “The fact that the meeting that I had is now casting a shadow over how people are going to view that work is something that I take seriously, and deeply and painfully,” she said.
Republicans said the meeting, which took place at the Phoenix airport, had compromised the independence of the investigation as the F.B.I. was winding it down. Some called for Ms. Lynch to recuse herself, but she did not take herself off the case — one that could influence a presidential election.
Ms. Lynch said she wants to handle the Clinton investigation like any other case. Since the attorney general often follows the recommendations of career prosecutors, Ms. Lynch is keeping the regular process largely intact.
The F.B.I. is investigating whether Mrs. Clinton, her aides or anyone else broke the law by setting up a private email server for her to use as secretary of state. Internal investigators have concluded that the server was used to send classified information, and Republicans have seized on the matter to question Mrs. Clinton’s judgment.
For the Justice Department, the central question is whether the conduct met the legal standard for the crime of mishandling classified information.
Ms. Lynch said that the meeting with Mr. Clinton was unplanned, largely social and did not touch on the email investigation. She suggested that he walked uninvited from his plane to her government plane, both of which were parked on a tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Mr. Clinton first appointed Ms. Lynch as a United States attorney in 1999.
“He said hello and we basically said hello, and congratulated him on his grandchildren, as people do,” she said on Friday. “That led to a conversation about those grandchildren.”
Ms. Lynch’s account has not mollified Republican lawmakers, who said the meeting raised questions about the integrity of the government’s investigation.
“In light of the apparent conflicts of interest, I have called repeatedly on Attorney General Lynch to appoint a special counsel to ensure the investigation is as far from politics as possible,” Senator John Cornyn, Republican of Texas and a member of the Judiciary Committee, said in a statement on Thursday.
The meeting created an awkward situation for Ms. Lynch, a veteran prosecutor who was nominated from outside Washington’s normal political circles. In her confirmation, her allies repeatedly sought to contrast her with her predecessor, Eric H. Holder Jr., an outspoken liberal voice in the administration who clashed frequently with Republicans who accused him of politicizing the office.
Her reassurance that she will not overrule her investigators is significant. When the F.B.I. sought to bring felony charges against David H. Petraeus, the former C.I.A. director, for mishandling classified information and lying about it, Mr. Holder stepped in and reduced the charge to a misdemeanor. That decision created a deep — and public — rift.
The F.B.I. is expected to make a recommendation to the Justice Department in the coming weeks, though agents have yet to interview Mrs. Clinton. While some legal experts said they believed that criminal indictments in the case were unlikely, the investigation continues to cast a shadow over Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, seized on the private encounter, describing it in a radio interview as a “sneak” meeting and saying it exposed the rigged nature of the process.
Even some Democrats criticized the meeting. “It doesn’t send the right signal,” Senator Chris Coons, Democrat of Delaware, said in response to a question on CNN’s “New Day.” While he said he believed that Ms. Lynch was an independent prosecutor, “I think she should have steered clear, even of a brief, casual, social meeting with the former president.”
Beyond the day-to-day workings of the Justice Department, there is precedent for explicitly relying on career officials to make politically charged decisions. When the Justice Department was considering whether to recommend sanctions against former Bush administration lawyers who approved waterboarding, Mr. Holder relied on his most senior career prosecutor to make the decision. No sanctions were recommended.
