Last Republican Superintendent of Public Instruction left office in 1971 even though they call it a nonpartisan office and Democrats have been in control of the state legislature for how many
years ???

“Three of four African-American boys in California classrooms failed to meet reading and writing standards on the most recent round of testing, according to data obtained from the state Department of Education and analyzed by CALmatters.

More than half of black boys scored in the lowest category on the English portion of the test, trailing their female counterparts. The disparity reflects a stubbornly persistent gender gap in reading and writing scores that stretches across ethnic groups.”

“California is being sued by a group of advocacy lawyers who allege the state isn’t doing enough to ensure the literacy of children.

Public Counsel, a California-based pro bono law firm, filed a lawsuit alongside law firm Morrison & Foerster in Los Angeles County Superior Court against the state’s board of education, its Department of Education and its state schools Superintendent Tom Torlakson, according to Education Week.

The lawsuit alleges that the state is not fulfilling its constitutional duty to children.

“The state has long been aware of the urgency and the depth of the all-too-preventable literacy crisis, and yet it has not implemented a single targeted literacy program to remedy this crisis,” said Mark Rosenbaum, director of Public Counsel’s opportunity under law division, according to Education Week.

National education data shows that California is one of 14 states the performed significantly lower than national averages on a 2015 reading assessment.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of current and former students and teachers at Los Angeles’s La Salle Elementary School; Stockton’s Van Buren Elementary School and Inglewood’s Children of Promise Preparatory Academy, according to the Los Angeles Times.

According to the newspaper, the suit uses La Salle as an example of the state failing to ensure students meet literacy goals. Of the 179 students who were tested in a recent English assessment, fewer than 10 scored high enough to meet state-established standards.”

Greatly admired Governor Pat Brown’s life long political goal to provide the highest quality education possible K thru College for the children of California at lowest possible cost.

No apologizing or bowing needed.

“Following President Donald Trump’s recent trip to Asia, China has released a long list of dramatic tariff cuts on a range of imported consumer goods. In fact, over 200 different products will see an average reduction of approximately 10 percent.” …

“Nestle could see an approximate sales increase of 15 percent, or $18.7 billion, as a result of the tariff cuts. Procter & Gamble Co., an American company that manufactures products for brands like Tide and Gillette, will see tariff reductions on items ranging from diapers to electronic toothbrushes.

China’s unilateral decision to cut tariffs, however modest, should prove beneficial for its major trading partners, including the United States. The cuts will also benefit the people of China, allowing them greater access to a variety of products at more competitive costs.”

Local December 8, 2017 at 8:20 PM

Yep. This bad for America.

U.S. trade deficit with China and Mexico is growing

Trump often cites the U.S. trade deficit as a sign that America is losing to China, Mexico and other countries on trade. He uses it to justify renegotiating trade deals and slapping tariffs on other countries’ products.
And the president has promised repeatedly to cut the trade deficit. But so far this year, it’s only growing.

U.S. trade gap soars as imports from China hit record high

The U.S. trade deficit jumped 8.6 percent in October as imports from China and other suppliers hit a record high ahead of the holiday shopping season, a Commerce Department report released Tuesday showed.

Trade deficits with Mexico and Canada are a direct result of NAFTA.
As for China, there had not been a President willing to engage China.

Deutsche Bank hands bank records of Trump affiliates to Robert Mueller

Deutsche Bank has been the only financial institution willing to lend Trump significant sums since the 1990s, a period in which other Wall Street banks turned off the tap after Trump’s companies declared bankruptcy.

The German bank sued Trump in November 2008 after he failed to repay a $40m debt on a $640m real estate loan.

Elvis December 9, 2017 at 12:11 AM

It’s not like Deutsch Bank is an angel among bankng giants. Earlier this year the bank was hit with massive fines for Russian money laundering. This on the heels of previous fines for toxic mortgage assets and manipulating the interest rate. With billions in fines, its a wonder Deutsche Bank hasn’t declared bankruptcy themselves. If they refused to lend Trump money, it may have been because he is too honest and upstanding a business partner.

Kim December 9, 2017 at 8:03 PM

That was FAKE NEWS.
Deutsche bank denies ever being asked for Trump financial records.

They tried to say that President Reagan was going to start World War 3 with his firm stance, when in reality he brought the most peace of the world in a long time and the breakdown of the Soviet Union. They also tried to say that Reagan’s tax break for the middle class would plunge the country into debt, but we all know the results was a more prosperous country and a safer country and world. Trump is going to deliver the same and the Liberals just can’t stand it because all their lies and failing programs will soon be exposed.

Liberal deomcrats continue their huge 10 to 1 lead in the sick and twisted pervert competition;
A former clerk for Judge Alex Kozinski said the powerful and well-known left-wing jurist, who for many years served as chief judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the ultrs liberal 9th Circuit, called her into his office several times and pulled up pornography on his computer, asking if she thought it was photoshopped or if it aroused her sexually.
She is one of six women — all former clerks or more junior staffers known as externs in the 9th Circuit — who alleged to The Washington Post in recent weeks that Kozinski, now 67 and still serving as a judge on the court, subjected them to a range of inappropriate sexual conduct or comments. She is one of two former clerks who said Kozinski asked them to view porn in his chambers.
What in hell is wrong with you people?

The G.O.P. Is Rotting

Today’s tax cuts have no bipartisan support. They have no intellectual grounding, no body of supporting evidence. They do not respond to the central crisis of our time. They have no vision of the common good, except that Republican donors should get more money and Democratic donors should have less.

The rot afflicting the G.O.P. is comprehensive — moral, intellectual, political and reputational. More and more former Republicans wake up every day and realize: “I’m homeless. I’m politically homeless.”

The FCC will vote to repeal its net neutrality rules on December 14. The outcome is a foregone conclusion.

• The repeal of the rules likely won’t mean broadband providers will block your access to Google or slow Netflix so it’s unwatchable. But the move likely will mean the providers will charge internet companies tolls to be able to send their content or services to you.

• Big companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Netflix will be able to afford those tolls. But smaller internet companies could be boxed out

The repeal of net neutrality will give these giant companies free rein to favor their own sites, services, and content, and discriminate against those of rivals. As long as they tell you what they’re doing, the government won’t stand in their way.

Zero surprise the mega rich one percent are willing to do almost anything to protect their gravy train of receiving tax payer handed out by congress and career bureaucrats.

“Highway 31 is a shell independent expenditure group used by three secretive D.C.-based consulting firms run by former Obama campaign staffers as a vehicle to fund attacks on Roy Moore in the Alabama U.S. Senate special election. The group spent another $468,000 on credit extended by one of these firms Friday to buy a massive one-day media attack against the conservative Republican candidate.

The total spent by Highway 31 since its formation on November 6 to attack Roy Moore now exceeds $4 million, all of it funded either as an in-kind donation from these three firms founded by Obama campaign staffers or by unknown donors.

Friday’s extraordinary one-day expenditures were made by a secretive Washington, DC, consulting firm with offices on K Street, Waterfront Strategies, a wholly owned subsidiary of GMMB Consulting, which was founded and is still run by former Obama campaign staffer Jim Margolis.”

It’s only coincidence that the women making claims against Trump are democrats. And it’s pure chance they decided to make those claims now.
Wow…….what are the odds?

Fred P. December 13, 2017 at 3:06 PM


Don’t think so…. they probably voted with their minds instead of going the straight party line.

Ever think of that?

Or maybe that’s outside of the realm of any possibility for liberals.

That’s why the 20% of the voters decide who gets elected. The other 80% vote the straight ticket.

Hey Freddie

But wouldn’t that impressive list of accomplishments represent voting with their minds?

A few of Obama’s first year accomplishments.

2 February – Obama signs a memorandum promising $20m in aid to Gaza.
17 February – Obama approves sending of 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan.
26 February – Obama submits a 140-page summary of his proposed budget to Congress.
(A budget which got ZERO Democrat votes).
20 March – President Obama releases an historic video message for all those celebrating Nowruz, the Iranian New Year, speaking directly to the leaders of Iran.
6 April – Obama speaks to the Turkish parliament, saying the US is not fighting against Islam.
2 June – General Motors, the US’s biggest carmaker, files for bankruptcy, the biggest manufacturing collapse in US history. Obama’s restructuring plan will see the US government owning 60%.
17 June – Obama announces an extension of health benefits to cover partners of gay federal workers.
17 September – Obama scraps plans for a missile defence shield in Poland, a move cautiously welcomed by Russia but criticised by Republicans already angry over healthcare reforms.
9 October – Obama wins the Nobel Peace prize. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
12 October – Obama repeats his promise to allow open gays in the military.
30 October – HIV positive visitors will be able to journey to the US for the first time in 22 years, from January 2010.

Aspirin’s solution is “so leave already.”

Don’t you see the hypocrisy? Are you really THAT blind?

It wasn’t just all that…. it was because Hillary laughed at the possibility of being indicted and was so blatantly, obviously, granted a “get out of jail free” pass by James Comey, and she knew she’d get away with it from the very beginning.
Every voter in the USA knew she was guilty as hell and some Democrats had enough self respect to not vote for her.

The Russian Dossier and the FBI Scandal

According to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the FBI official Peter Strzok “bootstrapped up the Russian dossier” and made it look like it was real intel. Then he had a secret FISA court get surveillance warrants on the Trump campaign.

“It’s real easy to clear that all up. Tell us ‘no,’” Jordan said.

“If the answer is yes, then you have the FBI getting paid with taxpayer’s money to help one campaign and against the other campaign.”

“But everything is pointing in that direction,” he said.

And, Tucker Carlson:

“The FBI is out of control. Nobody elected Peter Strzok to anything. You elect members of Congress to keep people like Peter Strzok in line. When people like Peter Strzok decide that Congress has no power over them, they are giving you the finger and they’re threatening democracy. That should not be allowed.”

“And yet, amazingly, it’s common. It happens literally all the time in Washington.”

“Last summer, Congress sought basic information about the infamous Trump dossier. Did the FBI pay for part of it? Did FBI agents or use it to drive their Russia investigation?”

“These are central questions. The FBI just ignored them, they didn’t feel like answering. They rarely do.”

“If the FBI conducted a partisan witch hunt concocted by President Trump’s enemies to overturn last fall’s election, you basically have an attempted coup.”

“An agency charged with enforcing the law clearly considers itself above the law, and that is a threat to you and every American, no matter who you voted for,” Carlson said Monday.

Aspirin December 14, 2017 at 9:31 AM

GOP criticism of the FBI is a sure sign that the investigation is bearing fruit. This is SOP when people are backed into a corner – accuse the accuser.

Fred P. December 14, 2017 at 10:33 AM

And yet aspirin is famous for “accusing the accuser.”

Aspirin – your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Aspirin December 14, 2017 at 9:29 AM

Putin is praising Trump for his “accomplishments” in the first year. He should add the upcoming destruction of the Republican majority as a main “accomplishment” as this seems to be the case.

Elwood December 14, 2017 at 1:21 PM

It’s deja vu all over again.

A few years ago, before the election of Trump and the take over of both houses of Congress and most governorships and state houses the Dimmiecrats were gloating over the death of the Republican party.

Aspirin and other true believers are still waiting.

Aspirin December 14, 2017 at 9:33 AM

You can’t put your “finger on it” because it is all pure fiction and mostly in your mind.

Try research.
Try facts.
Try reality.
Try not listening to Hannity and Limbaugh.

Aspirin December 14, 2017 at 9:35 AM

Dr. Jellyfinger, but somehow Hillary managed to get almost 3 million more votes than Trump.

Go figure.

Fred P. December 14, 2017 at 10:32 AM

Aspirin claims it is “all pure fiction.and mostly in your mind.”

I have NEVER seen anyone so slavishly devoted to the DNC as aspirin. I’m willing to bet that he/she/it would vote for Hillary if she was butchering babies and eating them on the Washington Mall at high noon on July 4 with the US Marine Band playing the Star Spangled Banner. And aspirin would STILL claim it was a GOP setup.

Aspirin – you are why we have the electoral college. Popular vote doesn’t mean a thing when the population of a couple of states (CA, NY) can override the will of the rest of the states.

Get your head outta your a$$ and grow up. You’re nothing more than a DNC troll.

Fred P. December 14, 2017 at 10:43 AM

Aspirin – Hillary stated she deleted the 30,000 e-mails. Yet you claim that it is “all pure fiction.”

So….. either you’re lying or Hillary is lying – which is it?

We’re waiting……

We’re still waiting.

Or are you both liars? In any of the cases, your credibility and Hillary’s credibility is zero.

Elwood December 14, 2017 at 1:14 PM

The only way to get rid of Hillary is to shoot her with a silver bullet and bury her with a stake through her heart.

Forsythe December 14, 2017 at 1:23 PM

Rush Limbaugh weighs in on the FBI Scandal:

The Associate Deputy Attorney General, Bruce Ohr, was demoted because he had working relationships with Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 officer, and Fusion GPS. According to James Rosen, Bruce Ohr did not reveal his October 2016 contacts with Steele or Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS to the leadership of the Department of Justice.

Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie, actually worked for Fusion GPS and helped guide the Russian dossier.

Investor’s Business Daily says, “For 18 months the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest that the FBI should be looking in the mirror.”

The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a glimpse into just how rabidly partisan law enforcement officials can be. They called Trump an ‘idiot,’ a ‘loathsome human,’ an ‘enormous do-che,’ and said ‘this man cannot be president.’

“When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton. In one text, Strzok said: ‘God Hillary should win 100,000,000-0.’ In another, he said that ‘a lot of people are holding their breath hoping’ about Clinton.”

We’re being played, my friends, like we haven’t been played in my life on this one.

@silva… not only a left leaning publication… but did you also look into the background and writings of the writer of the Newsweek article?

A liberal quoting a liberal writer that has an article in a liberal publication.What’s wrong with this picture? How about FACTUAL sources and raw/un-spun information.

Is that too much to ask? So much for reporting the facts.

Venice, it is very commonly accepted as fact, and you can even read about it on FOX News if you want. Like I said this information is and has been available for several years from a great many sources. I just grabbed one that was handy, since you asked. I’m not trying to convince you of anything.

During the US Attorney dismissal investigation in 2007 it was discovered that the Bush Administration had used a private email server owned the RNC called The reason we know it was 22 million emails is that the Obama Administration later recovered the missing emails.

You “can’t put your finger on it” because it’s very much like a living, breathing monster with slime oozing from its oriface, ten thousand writhing, snake-like arms, with a fire-breathing, sulpher-smelling glow from a blood-red tongue. A deplorable itself straight from hell.

Venice December 14, 2017 at 6:55 PM

The rabid blood-thirsty democrats are relentless, like jackals, they come at you from all angles, they never stop, and they have absolutely no rules and no scruples. For them, at least, anything goes — lie, cheat, steal, and defame, it doesn’t matter as long as they win.
Yet in the world the democrats and the media have created, the republicans have many rules, and if they don’t abide by each one, the media tries to make it a scandal. It’s sick and pathetic but it has worked in the past because of the public’s collective ignorance.
It doesn’t help that there are a lot of republicans and conservatives who just won’t get down and dirty. Many republicans would rather lose with dignity than win, but people who voted for Trump want to win. America wants to win. Republicans, all Republicans need to learn how to fight like the Democrats, or the nation is lost.
The evil Democrats plan would have worked against Trump if their criminally insane candidate didn’t have more negatives than Satan; at least he reigns in hell, Hillabeast merely wanted to create hell on earth and maybe unload the remaining 80% of our uranium in the process.
They’ve been coming at Trump ever since he won the nomination. Hillary threw every nasty horrible lie she had at him, even having her lawyers, Perkins Coie, pay (breaking campaign laws to do so) almost $10 million for the ignominious Trump dossier. “Opposition research,” that even James Comey called “salacious and unverified.” Then obama”s inside criminals in the FBI and the Justice Department used the fake dossier to get FISA warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign.
Ask yourself why that isn’t a bigger story. Don’t bother, it’s because the media, under mafia-like control, has become an arm of the criminal democratic Party.
The one thing she thought would work, however, the coup de grâce, the “Accusers,” didn’t have the impact the Democrats assumed they would have. The electorate ignored them.
We must resist the mafia-like choke hold of the contemporary democrat party. It’s only hope to make America great again and keep us free.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are members of a religious cult that is unscrupulous and has no principles. Innocent enough appearing on surface, this group is firmly ensconsed in the Democratic party, and in the U. S. government at all levels. While this cult accepts members of all faiths as well as satan worshipers and those who practice witchcraft, their foundation is in Islam and the entire group is controlled by a small, powerful group of Islamic leaders, perhaps even unbeknownst to most of the followers. They are so berift of any semblance of moral humanity that murder is one of their prevailing methods of handling those who oppose them which explains the strange deaths among friends and acquaintances of the Clintons and the trail of dead bodies that plague them. Anything goes when it comes to silencing critics of this group’s methods. The Clintons have been involved with this group since sometime in the late 60s, early 70s, perhaps joining as many orhers did during their college years. It seems obvious that Obama was a member of this group, also, since his presidency was merely a sock puppet of the Clinton machine to put Hillary’s healthcare into practice. It is time the whole matter was throughly investigated and exposed.

John McCain needs a brain transplant & Al Franken has volunteered to be the donor…. Isn’t there a rule against that?

Aspirin ,

The reason so many people keep talking about Hillary and her negatives is the msm is completely in bed with her. The low information voters such as yourself need to be constantly reminded of those issues.

You know damn well she won’t go away if a single person stops talking about her.

But your lying (see above) seems to preclude any rational thought. Remember ? The 30,000 emails that Hillary stated she erased? Then you commented it was all “pure fiction” – in other words, lies.

Your credibility is zero.

Jojo Potato December 15, 2017 at 1:56 PM
