From The Brenner Brief:
Suppose public education is compulsory and you are required by law to daily send your child to an institution that teaches witchcraft, evolution as fact rather than theory, and forces participation in playacting programs which instruct children how to engage in sex. You could opt to send your child to a religious institution instead, except religious institutions are required to teach the same curriculum. Homeschooling is not allowed because it violates the compulsory attendance laws. Would you rebel against such laws? Even if it meant punishing fines, jail time and ultimately, removal of your children? The Romeikes of Germany did. And then they fled…

From The Brenner Brief:
In recent weeks, Egypt has been the scene of upheaval and turmoil. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s government is struggling to stay in power as Egyptians revolt against his rule and the Muslim Brotherhood. Added to the chaos is the emergence of a group that calls itself “Black Bloc.” Dressed entirely in black, with black masks to hide their faces, Black Bloc’s members have been on the front lines, stepping between police and military as they attack protesters in Tahrir Square and Port Said. Egypt’s government and media have been swift to label them as terrorists. But are they? Progressive-activist-turned-conservative-activist, Breitbart writer and Citizen Patriot Response Director, Brandon Darby, doesn’t think so.
Darby explained that Black Bloc is more a tactic than an ideology. When used in the US, Europe and other democratic countries, the method is engaged in exclusively by leftists. This maneuver was employed at the 2008 RNC National Convention when the RNC Welcoming Committee, a self-described anarchist group, attempted to prevent RNC delegates from reaching the convention center.
Brandon Darby knows all about because he was there. Recruited by the FBI, Darby infiltrated the RNC Welcoming Committee. His work prevented destruction of property and harm to untold numbers of people. He explained that Lisa Fithian, on the steering committee of United for Peace and Justice, was organizing 10,000 liberals to march in peaceful protest against the RNC Convention, held at the xCel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN. Her goal was to prevent the convention from going forward and that couldn’t be done by peaceful means. So she organized three separate groups of people — green, red and yellow — to do separate things…

Michigan has been in the headlines recently with right-to work legislation and an omnibus abortion bill. What didn’t cause much stir is Michigan’s 2011 eighth grade education report card. The state as a whole is able to claim to be on par with the nation in reading, with 32 percent of eighth graders rating as “proficient” or better; in math, 31 percent of students ranked as “proficient” or better. Compared with national averages of 32 and 34 percent of eighth graders at or above grade-level in reading and math, respectively, Michigan’s public education system appears to be as mediocre as every other state. What the statewide numbers don’t show, however, is the complete failure of the Detroit Public Schools.
Decades ago Detroit, called the “Paris of the West,” was the fourth largest city in the nation with a large and thriving middle class. WhenHenry Ford perfected the assembly line, he was able to bring down the production costs of automobile manufacturing, which in turn made ownership possible to a much larger portion of Americans. With increased sales, Ford needed more workers to produce more vehicles. To attract those employees, he offered $5 a day wages and a shorter work day. The work was monotonous, but the wages were nearly twice what any other auto manufacturer offered. Hopeful workers flocked to Detroit for jobs. Their employment created a large and prosperous middle class[...]

Yesterday the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed to ratify the treaty. The White House expressed its dissatisfaction saying, in part, “We are disappointed that the overwhelming majority of Senate Republicans today blocked the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which would enshrine American standards that have been developed through decades of bipartisan cooperation.”
The treaty is an international human rights instrument of the United Nations to protect individuals with disabilities. Parties are bound Under the Convention to ensure that disabled people enjoy the same human rights as their counterparts without disabilities, and full equality under the law.
Proponents of the treaty claim it would have helped “individuals with disabilities around the world obtain the rights and protections we have here in the United States. The ratification of this treaty would have unified us with millions of disability advocates, family members and self-advocates of all nations,” said Peter Burns, CEO of The Arc. He went on to say that The Arc will continue to fight for this legislation. Senator John Kerry and former Senator Bob Dole [...]

“The people aren’t sure… just where they are going, but anywhere seems better than where they had been. In the homes on the streets, in the offices there is a feeling of hope reborn.”
And so begins the presidency of a man hailed as a hero, a savior to the United States. Under his guidance, banks were investigated by federal authorities to determine whether or not they were financially solvent. If it was determined they were sound, they could continue operating, with government support.
In the meantime, he went on a spending spree on the taxpayer’s dime. A strong believer in “social justice,” he believed it was the responsibility of the government to protect the poor from the “rich.” The way to achieve this was through government programs designed to create employment in public sector jobs and improve infrastructure by building bridges, sidewalks and roads; to raise wages for low income workers; borrowing unheard of amounts of money for these projects; demanding tax increases for the wealthiest individuals in country; and driving a wedge between the classes and races
Believing the Bill of Rights was incomplete,[...]
