Under a new law proposed this week by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy’s Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, every homeschooling parent with a child who has been labeled with a behavioral or emotional problem would be forced to submit to a host of strict, burdensome regulations.
The scheme put forth in the commission’s draft recommendations on mental health would require homeschooling parents to submit individual education plans regularly to a local education bureaucrat.
School officials could then decree whether parents may continue to educate their own children, reports the Connecticut Post. Administrators could pull the plug on any parents’ homeschooling by declaring that the child failed to make “adequate progress.”
The onerous new rules for homeschooling families somehow make sense in the minds of commission members because Adam Lanza massacred 20 young children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. in December 2012 — when he was 20 years old.
Lanza attended public schools (and a Catholic school) for virtually all of his education. His mother, whom Lanza later murdered, pulled him out of Newtown High School when he was 16 and briefly homeschooled him. While he was still 16, Lanza earned his GED and enrolled at Western Connecticut State University, another public school.
Three black males had reason for attacking an Columbus, GA area woman earlier this month. The 36-year-old woman was kidnapped, forced into a car, then driven to a vacant lot.
It was there authorities say the black males raped her, beat her, set her on fire, and shot her. Their motive?
The woman participated in an impromptu rap contest and convincingly out-performed the three males. No arrests were made at the time we first reported the crime in January.
Recent developments, however, have led police to charge the three males — Joey Betrail Garron, 28, Robert Carl Johnson, 23, and Ketorie Glover, 23, of Columbus — with aggravated assault, rape, kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated sexual battery, aggravated sodomy, arson first degree, hijacking a motor vehicle and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Men make up 83 percent of Google’s engineering employees and 79 percent of its managers. In a report to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission last year, Google said that of its 36 executives and top-ranking managers, just three are women.
Google’s leaders say they are unhappy about the firm’s poor gender diversity, and about the severe underrepresentation of blacks and Hispanics among its work force.
And so they are undertaking a long-term effort to improve these numbers, the centerpiece of which is a series of workshops aimed at making Google’s culture more accepting of diversity.

A CBS News review shows campus police across the country have received millions of dollars worth of military gear from the Pentagon.
Now, there are calls to halt those transfers, even though some agencies say the weapons are necessary.
The director of police said those additional weapons and gear are necessary, given the type of emergencies that can happen.
The university’s police department is one of at least 125 school law enforcement agencies in 25 states that have received military gear free of charge from the Department of Defense. That includes police departments for 23 kindergarten-through-12 school districts and 102 colleges and universities.
The DOD program came under scrutiny in August when police responded to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, with tanks, combat gear and assault rifles – some of which had come from the Pentagon.

The new rules will expand an existing program allowing recruiters to target foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training.
For the first time, the program — known as Military Accessions in the National Interest, or MAVNI — will be open to immigrants without a proper visa if they came to the U.S. with their parents before age 16. More specifically, they must be approved under a 2012 Obama administration policy known as Deferred Action for Child Arrivals, or DACA.
The new Pentagon policy may be the first phase of a broader government-wide effort to ease pressure on immigrants and create new paths to citizenship. President Barack Obama, frustrated with the failure of Congress to pass any substantial immigration reform, has vowed to aggressively use his presidential authority to change the way immigration policies are carried out.

A new study shows that the number of immigrants in the United States jumped 3 percent in three years — to a record 41.3 million in 2013 — and that the nearly 300,000 who came from Muslim countries pose a major national security threat, the report’s co-author told Newsmax on Thursday.
“All of that does raise national security concerns, and I don’t think there has been any consideration of that,” said Steven Camarota, research director for the Center for Immigration Studies.
“No one’s suggesting that they’re going to launch a missile and hit New York, but rather they’re going to board an airliner and blow it up,” he added. “They’re going to park a car in a public place, they’re going to go on a shooting spree, or any one of those things.

The future of your children and grandchildren is in jeopardy. No intelligent man or woman can deny that the white race is facing genocide. Unless something is done your children will face the exact same fate as if they were the child of a factory worker, mechanic or others in the labor field. Your financial and corporate success will not protect them from this growing anti-White hatred.

Outrage! Where is the outrage? While thousands of blacks and some groveling white politicians attended the funeral of a misogynist, white hating, criminal thug, no one from the White House to the state house has bothered visiting the home of Darren Wilson, the white cop who has been character assassinated by just about every news source in America and many abroad.
Mike Brown’s parents blame institutional racism for the death of their son, perhaps they should point the finger back at themselves. An aspiring rapper who’s online videos show him rapping about hating cops, white people, murder, and beating …p…sy, Mike Brown was hardly the gentle and innocent teenager that has been portrayed. What kind of parents let their son talk like this? What kind of parents make excuses for criminal behavior? With a criminal arrest record and video showing him strong arming a store clerk that he outweighed by about a 150 lbs and a least a foot taller, Mike Brown was just a black thug who’s cocky, white hating, behavior cost him his life because he thought he could beat and subdue office Darren Wilson. What a great parenting job they did.

A 23-year-old British former rapper was identified on Saturday by British security officials as the man suspected of beheading American journalist James Foley, according to news reports.
Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, who is said to be known by Islamic State members as “Jihadi John” because of his British accent, was identified by unnamed British intelligence sources as the masked terrorist standing by Foley in a video ISIS posted on the Internet of the execution, The Sunday Times of London reports.
Prior to release of the Foley death video, Bary had posted a photo of himself on Twitter holding a severed head.
