The big lie by Obama on right to work outcomes; 76% of us favor across the board cuts; Universities and the rights of the accused assaulted by Obama; International education agenda; Poverty and food stamps, and Cloward and Piven;

Obama's Big Michigan Right-To-Work Lie: Lower Wages  The president says right-to-work laws mean "the right to work for less money." So how does he explain the fact that incomes are up in RTW states while forced unionism is a proven job killer?
According to Michigan's Mackinac Center, using data taken from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and Bureau of Labor Statistics, private-sector, inflation-adjusted employee compensation in right-to-work states increased by 12% between 2001 and 2011 compared with just 3% over the same period in forced-unionization states.

Steven Crowder is in Michigan recording the protests that are taking place. At some point, as Moe Lane noted earlier, the crowd started tearing down the AFP [Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group] tent that was there. When Crowder attempted to intervene, he was assaulted by multiple protestors with one protestor even shouting that he would “kill a mother f__ker with a gun.”
See the incredible video below:   [I love the way Charles Krauthammer describes this business: we have the choice of allowing more [union] workers to hire fewer people at much higher salaries and benefits, or we can instead "spread the wealth", "redistribute" the jobs at slightly lower wages to more people."  Now why wouldn't our President like that?  While we are at it, why can't we call the Bush tax cuts what it is - a subsidy.]
Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said Tuesday he expects Michigan unions and lawmakers to break out into "civil war" after the state legislature passed right-to-work bills that would weaken unions´ power. "This is just the first round of a battle that´s going to divide this state. We´re going to have a civil war," Hoffa said on CNN´s "Newsroom."
"What they're doing is basically betraying democracy," he told CNN's Brooke Baldwin. "If there's any question here, let's put it on the ballot and let the people of Michigan decide what's good for Michigan." [Didn't we just do this on one of the ballot initiatives in MI?   The proposal would have made collective bargaining a right for public and private workers, but was defeated. It is THEY who are betraying democracy by forcing people to join a union and pay union dues in order to hold a job.]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ A new poll conducted by Politico/GWU/Battleground finds that 76 percent of Americans favor “Cutting government spending across the board.”
Exposed by Jonathan Turley:  Last year, universities received a seemingly friendly "Dear Colleague" letter from the [Obama] Administration demanding that schools actually reduce due process protections in disciplinary hearings for accused students and faculty in sexual misconduct cases,.  If they did not, the letter warned, they could lose federal funding and face discrimination charges..  The helpful "colleague" was the assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education, explaining that reduction of protections for students was essential for preserving education as "the great equalizer in America".  [Keep the false Duke Lacrosse Team rape charges in mind.  Reinforcing due process for students has been condemned by the Obama Administration.]
An international education must go well beyond the provision of information and is involved in the development of attitudes and values which transcend barriers of race, class, religion, gender or politics.
—International Baccalaureate Organization Subject Guide (1996).
Should we spend taxpayer dollars on a public school curriculum commissioned by the United Nations, made in Europe, and at odds with the principles of the American founding? Through the International Baccalaureate program, that's already underway.
Across the country, public schools (primarily high schools, but also middle and elementary schools) are paying into the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Now, there are 1,296 IB "World Schools" in the United States, of which 279 offer the Primary Years Programme, 445 offer the Middle Years Programme, and 751 offer the Diploma Programme. But a growing chorus of parents and concerned citizens oppose IB because of its conflict with America's founding principles.
IB was founded in 1968 in Switzerland to provide internationally standardized curricula for the children of diplomats.
From this document, we learn that the goal of IB is not merely to impart knowledge or teach thinking skills, but rather to develop "citizens of the world" with "universal human values."

Only 7% of Detroit Public-School 8th Graders Proficient in Reading.  [But lets keep giving those in the Dept. of Education more and more money for salaries so that they will do a better job?  I don't think so, and being protected by the unions and tenure is not helping out students either.]


One million Americans entered poverty in the last two months  [It is all about how "poverty" is now defined in America.  As those who have read my columns know, one of the strategies of college professors Cloward and Piven is to put more and more people on government assistance programs, making them more and more dependent on being taken care of.  This is a way to collapse capitalism and have citizens wanting the protection of the government.  Then Socialism will be accepted.]
Four more years! Four more years! And we thought last month´s delayed foodstamp data was bad. The just reported foodstamp number for September was a doozy, with 607,544 new Americans becoming eligible for foodstamps, as a record 47.7 million Americans are now living in poverty at least according to the USDA. The monthly increase was the highest since May 2011, and with August´s 421K new impoverished America, over 1 million Americans made the EBT card their new best friend. It is unclear just which atmospheric phenomenon will get the blame for this unprecedented surge in poverty,
Senator slams USDA for not answering questions on policies contributing to record food stamp use.  Following news that participation in the food stamp program hit another record high in September, Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions took to the Senate floor Tuesday to lambast the Department of Agriculture for failing to respond to an oversight request regarding USDA policies that have likely contributed to the expansion of the program.
The Alabama senator has been pushing USDA for answers on their various means of food stamp promotion — notably to people who either do not want or who should not be on food stamps. While he said he has received some answers that were “very troubling,” his most recent request in October (with a mid-October deadline) for more answers and for USDA to eliminate some of their promotion materials has remained unanswered for nearly two months.

White House “Holiday” Card Spotlights Dog, Not Christmas
White House “Holiday” Card  Spotlights Dog, Not Christmas.  The 2012 White House “Holiday” card spotlights the Obama’s family Portuguese water dog — instead of Christmas.
President Obama’s”holiday” cards have been the subject of controversy in the past.  His 2009 greeting card made no reference to Christmas, drawing the ire of Republican Congressman Henry Brown.
 “I believe that sending a Christmas card without referencing a holiday and its purpose limits the Christmas celebration in favor of a more ‘politically correct’ holiday,” the South Carolina congressman told Fox News Radio in 2009.

The U.S. should consider automatically registering eligible voters and extending voting hours to counter the November election’s long lines and administrative hurdles, Attorney General Eric Holder said.
