ISIS Army Parades In 43 New Toyota Hilux Trucks – Donated By U.S. Taxpayers!

"The Hilux, a pickup truck Toyota has built since the late 1960s, isn’t available in the US, but it’s popular around the globe, including with insurgent groups such as the Taliban, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and now ISIS.

In April the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels recently and the delivery included 43 Toyota trucks. Now ISIS is using the trucks." . . . GatewayPundit

Two Texas Sheriffs Weigh In On Possible ISIS Operations Across Southern Border

KWES NewsWest 9 / Midland, Odessa, Big Spring, TX: newswest9.com |

"Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter made an appearance on CNN Friday, addressing local preparations for possible terrorist acts. Now another West Texas county, which sits on the border, is weighing in. With alleged ISIS operations taking place in Mexico, NewsWest 9 spoke with the sheriff of the largest county in Texas, which happens to lie on our West Texas border, to see how they are preparing for any future terrorist threats. This comes as Senator Ted Cruz is sending his personal message as well.

'If there are ISIS fighters that may already be in the United States, or in your area who've crossed the border, what's your message to them?' CNN's Don Lemon asked Midland County Sheriff, Gary Painter on Friday. 'If they rear their ugly heads, we'll send them to hell,' Painter said.

Painter appeared on CNN's The Don Lemon Show to talk local preparations in case any member of ISIS, or any other terrorist group appears in West Texas. 'You believe ISIS is already here?' Lemon asked." . . . NewsWest9

. . . As Progressive College Board Attacks Our Country's Founding

"What is the core of the American story? What is American history about? For a long time, Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was thought to offer the most succinct and profound reply to these questions. The heart of the American story was said to be the Founding, with its principles of liberty and equality. American history was thus a study of our efforts to more fully realize republican principles, often in the face of our own flaws and failings. American history was also about the defense in peace and war of a unique experiment—a nation bound by democratic norms, rather than by ties of blood.

More recently, revisionist historians have developed a different answer to the question of what America’s story is about. From their perspective, at the heart of our country’s history—like the history of any other powerful nation—lies the pursuit of empire, of dominion over others. In this view, the formative American moment was the colonial assault on the Indians. At its core, say the revisionists, America’s history is about our capacity for self-delusion, our endless attempts to justify raw power grabs with pretty fairy-tales about democracy." . . .

Home Depot At It Again, This Time It's Dearborn Michigan Store Embraces Muslim Sensitivity Training

"CAIR has helped resolve a number of similar cases involving prayer in the workplace and offers a booklet, called 'An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices,' to help corporate managers gain a better understanding of Islam and Muslims. Here are a few nuggets from it:

Employers may wish to modify dress code policies so that religiously-mandated attire is addressed as a diversity issue. For example, many corporations have a policy forbidding the wearing of 'hats.' This rule may be amended to exempt items such as head scarves and skullcaps. [Also], A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages . . . NowTheEndBegins

Benghazi Is The ‘Most Shocking’ Impeachable Offense By Obama

"A proper understanding of 'high crimes and misdemeanors' would make President Barack Obama’s lack of action to protect the Benghazi compound impeachable and removable, said former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy.

'The most shocking transgression by this president involves Benghazi, which is a profound dereliction of duty, even though it’s not an indictable offense,' McCarthy, author of 'Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment' told TheBlaze. 'It’s simply a fact that the president does not have to be indictable in order to be removable.'" . . . TheBlaze

Emails Prove that Obama's IRS Head Ignored "Dirty Money" From Liberal Unions While Persecuting Conservatives

"The official at the center of the IRS tea party scandal once dismissed complaints that labor unions were not reporting millions of dollars in political activities on their tax forms, according to an email obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

In 2007, Lerner responded directly to a complaint that some major labor unions reported completely different amounts of political expenditures when filing with the IRS and the Department of Labor. At the time of the email, Lerner was the Director of Exempt Organizations at the IRS. Lerner wrote, 'We looked at the information you provided regarding organizations that report substantial amounts of political activity and lobbying expenditures on the DOL Form LM-2, but report little to no political expenditures on the Form 990 filed with the IRS.'” . . .

Liberty Counsel Defends National Motto, "In God We Trust"

"Liberty Counsel offered to defend the Allegheny County Council after it received a threatening email from the Freedom From Religion Foundation ('FFRF') opposing a proposed display of the National Motto “In God We Trust” in the County Council meeting room in Pennsylvania.

'The FFRF is in the business of harassing schools, county commissioners, and any official who will listen to their claims that public expressions of faith are unconstitutional, including the National Motto,' said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. 'In the letter from FFRF to the council, Ms. Gaylor deceitfully said that displaying the motto was unconstitutional. Ms. Gaylor lost a similar National Motto case before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a case bearing her own name, Gaylor v. United States.' . . . LibertyCounsel

School Board Member: Feds Should Worry About Marine Detained In Mexico, Not School Bake Sales

"The ground is crumbling under Michelle Obama’s signature initiative worse than a low-fat cookie. Numerous school districts across the country are moving swiftly to stop receiving reimbursements from the National School Lunch Program and in return, are giving themselves more freedom to decide lunch menus and bake sales at the local level.

The Duval County, Florida board is the latest to authorize its superintendent to authorize bake sales and sidestep the newly imposed rules championed by Michelle Obama. At a recent meeting, the board voted 6-1 to allow “junk food” in bake sales, the Florida Times-Union reports.

At least one board member believes the federal government has more important things to worry about. 'You see the federal government, in its great and never ending wisdom, decided that it was priority to tell Duval County parents what they could or couldn’t have at bake sales,' board member Jason Fischer said at the meeting." . . .

You Need To Know! What Does A Quality Textbook Look Like?

"There’s an interesting new concern being voiced by Common Core leaders: 'What does a quality textbook look like?' Here’s a non-nuanced, concrete answer, especially for mathematics textbooks: 'It gets results and doesn’t chase kids out of math.' And, yes, such textbooks do exist. It’s not surprising that the issue of quality textbooks has come up with Common Core. After all, textbook publishing is a multi-billion dollar industry.

The federally-supported mathematics and English Core standards will drive 85% of a school’s curricula and 100% of the related assessments in about 40 states. The creation of new Core-aligned materials that prepare students for the Core-aligned assessments is already making a rich impact on publishing businesses, vendors, and peripheral activities (teacher training, consultants, etc.). So much has to be rewritten or at least republished with the words “Common Core Aligned” on the cover. Old materials must be thrown away. New materials have to be bought. Lots of profit is on the horizon.

The major problem for publishers, however, is actually in mathematics education. They must figure out how to get good, reliable, and verifiable results from American children who have become math phobic over the past 50 years. That means publishers need to listen to authors who have a proven success record and not to ideologically-driven math education leaders who have for years promoted fads with political correctness as the purpose of math education. It will be hard—and expensive—to cut the cord between publishers and embedded education 'leaders' if quality textbooks are to be created.

Profits may suffer at the beginning. But here is a checklist for publishers, administrators, teachers, and parents to consider about math textbooks: . . . EducationViews

We Are Not Alone In Progressive Attacks Around The World: German Christian Emergency League: Pastor And Christian, Stand Up, Stand Fast!

"On September 11th, 1933, a group of 61 German pastors gathered to form The Pfarrernotbund – The Pastor’s Emergency League. Outraged by Nazi incursion into Church affairs and disappointed by the silent pulpits of their peers, men like Martin Niemoller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer forged this covenant so that the light of the Christian gospel in Germany would neither be stamped out by Jack-boots nor trimmed by black robes.

Is America entering into a post-Christian era? Are we repeating the tragedy of pre-war Germany? As an American Air Force General once said, 'History may not repeat itself but it sure as Hell paraphrases.'

The current administration has tried to dictate who Lutherans can hire and fire, they’ve told Catholics to pay for contraceptives and are in the midst of forcing every American to subsidize the holocaust in the womb. The Obama administration has declared that bakers, photographers, bed and breakfast owners, and even farmers must accommodate sexual anarchy or risk annihilation by litigation.

The speed in which our culture and political institutions have turned against Biblical Christianity has been as swift and sweeping as a tsunami. A Christian Nation with a secular government has turned into an anti-Christian Nation with a hostile government."

This photo was not actually aT the White House, but, regardless of WHERE it was taken, the fact is that he cancelled the National Day of Prayer, said that we are no longer a Christian nation, and has no problem taking part in Muslim prayer.  U.S. President Barack Obama bows to Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio at MacDill Air Force Base on January 28, 2010, in Tampa, Florida.   Iorio had honored CAIR annually in Tampa with its own day in November 2008, acknowledging the large amout of Muslims living in the area. "Ayers, now a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, claims to abhor nostalgia ("Nothing is more boring than some old person going on and on about the way things used to be"). But he has been thinking lately about the past—both his and the country's—and soon he will likely be engaged in what he calls "a dialogue" about the sixties, the antiwar movement, and the radical life he led. The spur for this dialogue will be the publication of Fugitive Days (Beacon Press, $24), a memoir Ayers has written about the trajectory of his life, from a pampered son of the Chicago suburbs to a young pacifist to a founder of one of the most radical political organizations in U.S. history."
