One pic shows American Federation of Teachers is monolithically Left

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) describes itself as:

The American Federation of Teachers, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, was founded in 1916 and today represents 1.6 million members in more than 3,000 local affiliates nationwide.

Five divisions within the AFT represent the broad spectrum of the AFT’s membership: pre-K through 12th-grade teachers; paraprofessionals and other school-related personnel; higher education faculty and professional staff; federal, state and local government employees; and nurses and other healthcare professionals. In addition, the AFT represents approximately 80,000 early childhood educators and nearly 250,000 retiree members.

AFT publishes the quarterly journal American Educator.

Below is the pic that is on the front page of the latest, Summer 2017 issue of American Educator. Note the pink pussy hat, the Obama t-shirt, and the signs held by the public school teachers:

  • Black Lives Matter
  • DeVos: Public Schools Enemy No. 1 (Betsy DeVos is the Trump administration’s Secretary of Education)
  • To America’s 1st Russian Prez: Where’s Your Birth Certificate

Teachers are supposed to be objective and impartial. But like America’s journalists, they are rabidly partisan and biased. (See “Harvard University study finds MSM coverage of President Trump overwhelmingly negative”)

Just remember we are paying teachers like those in the pic with our tax dollars.

If you vote for any bond measures to funnel even more tax dollars to your local and state public schools, you are aiding and abetting AFT’s indoctrination and infesting of America’s young with their filthy Marxist ideology.

Pro-life Republican Karen Handel wins Georgia special Congressional election

Despite the despicable machinations of the liberal media, pop culture “celebrities,” and the deep state against President Trump, and the very real terrorist violence in acts and speech against a duly-elected, sitting President and his supporters, the Democrats continue to lose — deservedly.

See:

Kathy Griffin wants to decapitate President Trump

Last night, the Democrats lost again in the hotly-contested run-off election for Georgia’s sixth congressional district, which was vacated when President Trump appointed former Rep. Tom Price to be Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Despite millions of Democrat dollars poured into pro-abortion John Ossof’s campaign, pro-life Republican Karen Handel won the election. With 100% of precincts reporting, Handel had 52.7% and Ossoff had 47.3%.

Just days before the election, on June 15, Handel and her neighbors were victims of the Left’s terror when they received threatening letters containing a white powdery substance in their homes’ mailboxes.

Karen Handel, a Roman Catholic business woman, was Georgia’s Secretary of State from 2007 to 2010.

Claire Chretien reports for LifeSiteNews that Karen Handel had fought Planned Parenthood Abortionhood. In 2011, as senior vice president of public policy of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Handel advised the breast-cancer charity organization to cut ties with Planned Parenthood (PP), which the charity did in early 2012. That led to PP and its political allies viciously attacking Komen and forcing it to reverse its new policy. Handel resigned and documented PP’s actions in a book, Planned Bullyhood: The Truth Behind the Headlines about the Planned Parenthood Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

In the special run-off election, Planned Parenthood endorsed Ossoff and poured six figures into his campaign. The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List endorsed Handel, as well as contacted more than 65,000 voters with information about her opposition to taxpayer-funded and late-term abortions, and her battle to defund Planned Parenthood.

During their first debate, Ossoff attacked Handel over the Komen/Planned Parenthood incident. Handel defended herself, pointing out that the Komen Foundation’s grants to PP “were not effective” and that:

“It doesn’t matter how many times you say it, it does not make it true. Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. Period.

Handel then detailed how she has spent her career fighting for women’s health through anti-breast cancer advocacy and awareness:

“I am gonna be at the frontline of fighting for women. I am not going to be lectured by you, John.”

“Reporting” for The Guardian, former Daily Beast reporter Ben Jacobs archly observes with barely-contained frustration: “The race was the latest in a series of special elections in Republican seats where Democrats managed to deliver moral victories – rather than actual victories – as they proved unable to notch a major electoral win in the Trump administration.”

“Moral victories”? What moral victories?

The election actually was a farce because, as President Trump pointed out in a tweet, John Ossoff couldn’t even vote for himself because he lives with his girlfriend outside the district.

Covfefe!!!

Dolce & Gabbana at it again: Shut down Miley Cyrus and her political rant

Miley Cyrus

I strongly disagree with everything about this “entertainer”

I am loving these guys!

From Daily Mail: Miley Cyrus has never been one to back down from what she believes in. And the 24-year-old pop star wasn’t afraid to critique the designers of Dolce & Gabbana while she congratulated brother Braison for making his runway debut in their Saturday fashion show.

Although the post began with the Malibu singer gushing about her baby brother, it ended on a political note with the starlet writing ‘PS ‘D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics,’ likely making an nod to the brand’s work with First lady Melania Trump.

Miley shout out to brother Braison began straightforward enough as the pop star gushed about the 23-year-old calling him the ‘most talented musician my ears have ever been given the gift of hearing’ and praising him for ‘stepping out of his comfort zone’ on the catwalk.

But her post took a turn towards the political with the Wrecking Ball singer’s post-script, writing ‘PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics.’

The former Disney diva’s comments were likely directed towards the Italian fashion house’s decision to dress First Lady Melania Trump, which earned them significant criticism. After their relationship with the Trumps even sparked a boycott online, the fashionistos fought back with style, producing a $245 ‘#Boycott Dolce & Gabbana.’

Stefano Gabbana was not pleased with Miley’s dig, commenting on the post first ‘Ignorant!!!’ and then later writing ‘For your stupid comment never more work with [your brother] ❤❤.’

Not one to take the high road, Stefano Gabbana also snapped back at Miley on his Instagram account, writing her a message in his native Italian. Translated, it reads: ‘We are Italian and we don’t care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! 

‘We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it’s simply ignorant. We don’t need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!!’

He added the tag ‘#boycottdolcegabbana’ just in case Miley had a change of heart and decided to pick up an stubbornly overpriced tee shirt.

D&G’s work with Melania hasn’t been their only recent brush with controversy.

Founders Stefano Gabano and Domenico Dolce found themselves in hot water after the openly gay fashionistas expressed their disapproval for gay parenting and IVF in a 2015 interview with Italian magazine Panorama.

‘We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed,’ said the designers in the piece titled ‘Long-Live the [Traditional] Family.’

The Left’s Civility on Display: MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid attacks Scalise as he recovers in hospital

joy ann reid tweet

DNC media puppets can’t go one day without playing identity politics.

From Fox News: As Rep. Steve Scalise lay in his hospital bed recovering after he was shot by a maniac gunman who was hunting congressional Republicans, an MSNBC host asked whether the House Majority Whip’s life-threatening injuries meant Americans had to “ignore” his political positions.

Joy Ann Reid on Saturday cited Scalise’s positions on ObamaCare and gay marriage as among the concerning “moral” issues she felt couldn’t be overlooked despite his critical injury at the hands of a left-leaning lunatic who opened fire at a GOP baseball practice on June 14.

“There’s a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it’s a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said.

She added later: “He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House health care bill which, as you said, would gut health care for millions of people including 3 million children and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?

Scalise, R-La., was among five people shot by James Hodgkinson on the morning of June 14. The gunman was killed by Capitol Police officers who were part of Scalise’s security detail. The personal life of one of those officers prompted a tweet from Reid promoting the segment.

“Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet… #AMJoy,” she wrote.

Shocker, not: Health insurers propose over 20 percent 2018 rate increase in Washington state

Obamacare Screw U

At least it’s lower than the 80% increase I had for my health insurance premiums this year.

From MyNorthwest.com: State officials say that health insurers have proposed rate changes for next year that have an average increase of about 22.3 percent.

The insurance commissioner’s office said Monday that 11 health insurers filed 71 health plans for the state’s individual and family health insurance market. In two counties — Klickitat and Grays Harbor — no health insurer filed plans.

Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says he has been reaching out to insurers to see if one or more will reconsider offering plans in those two counties.

All rates, health plans, and coverage areas are under review by Kreidler’s office and may change before the plans are certified by the Washington Health Benefit Exchange Board on Sept. 14. Open enrollment for the 2018 individual market starts Nov. 1.

Michael Flynn cleared by FBI of illicit ties to Russia

This news is from January 2017, but I don’t remember seeing or hearing about this. Do you?

Grr . . . .

Lt. Gen. (ret.) Michael Flynn

On January 24, 2017, Joe Tacopino reports for the New York Post:

The FBI has reviewed intercepted phone calls between national security adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the US and has found no evidence of wrongdoing, it was revealed Monday.

The calls were made in late December and picked up as part of routine electronic surveillance of Russian officials. They did not reveal any illicit ties between Flynn and Russia, according to the Washington Post.

The review of the calls was part of a wider probe into Russia’s interference in the presidential election and hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
