As usual Justice Pirro took no prisoners as she asked of Pope Francis, “Where are you” when the people who speak the language of Jesus (Aramaic) are being slaughtered and Jonah’s tomb, a holy site in Mosul is destroyed.

The debate rages on: Is Barack Obama an epically incompetent amateur?  Or is he a cunning and treacherous domestic enemy well on his way to destroying the United States that most of us have known and loved all our lives.

StupidMy money is on the latter hypothesis, of course, since the law of averages dictates that no honestAmerican could drive us so unerringly down the road to ruin unless he knew where he was going from the git-go — or in this case, from the Gitmo, that holding pen for the Islamist killers he’s so eagerly setting loose — men like Mohammad Fazi, pictured here in his jihadi heyday:

Opt out of NY’s Common Core testing.

You do not have to have your child participate in Cuomo’s Common Core initiative. How many parents are aware that they have the right to opt out? Testing and curriculum should come at the local level. Common Core = Communist Core.

CommonCore

Letting the Federal Government control education has been is and will increasingly bring students down to a minimum level and inhibit achieving a maximum level of education. The other danger is it allows government to indoctrinate students in a way incompatible with families and/or our nations best interest but rather with the interests of those in power.

While her son’s fourth-grade classmates were taking the nation’s first round of tests under the controversial Common Core program, Heidi Indelecato decided to teach her son a lesson in civil disobedience.

“We respectfully refuse to participate in the test,” said Indelecato, whose son Benjamin attends school in Lancaster, N.Y., which on Tuesday became the first state to administer testing under the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

So while other kids sat poised with their No. 2 pencils above Scantron sheets, Benjamin studied with his mother, who documented the occasion with a picture of the pair wearing T-shirts that read: “Keep calm and and refuse the NYS tests.”

“We respectfully refuse to participate in the test.”- Heidi Indelecato, mother of a fourth-grader

Common Core was adopted by 45 states, although Indiana withdrew last month. The set of standards, devised by the nation’s school superintendents at the behest of the National Governors Association, seeks to set a uniform standard for grades K-12, to ensure kids all over the nation reach the same minimum level of learning.

The program involves testing of students in grades 3-8 and high school testing is scheduled to begin next year.New York implemented the standards a year early.

Critics say the standards end up dictating curriculum, and thus taking power away from local districts and parents. They also claim that textbooks and lesson plans aligned with Common Core have become politicized. In addition to Indiana, measures have been introduced in several state legislatures to opt out or scale back participation.

Indelecato, a member of the parent group NYS Allies for Public Education, said she has been picking up her son at the beginning of the testing sessions and going to the library, where they review reading arts and math as well as lessons in the civil disobedience of such historical figures as Rosa Parks.

“I feel like I’m teaching him leadership and strong self-confidence, qualities that I feel are good for the development of a young child,” she said. “I’m trying to instill in him that sometimes it’s important to be polite but disobedient. Sometimes it’s needed because the leaders are not always going to be right.”

As students across New York state began taking the 90-minute tests, parents have been given the option of keeping children from participating. But in many districts the kids are not being allowed to use the time to read or do homework during the testing periods, which continue for the next six days. Read more…

Bob –

This week, students in classrooms across New York will be subject to high-stakes, burdensome over-testing. It is my belief that our students should spend more time learning and less time testing.Mary Jo and I are deeply involved in our children’s education – our three children attend the same public school I went to – and we are blessed that they have had phenomenal teachers. It’s unfair to require these teachers to teach to the test, instead of developing lessons specific to each classroom and community’s needs.

 

That’s why I’ve authored a bill that reduces these burdensome, high-stakes, federal testing requirements. I believe local input is critical to developing curriculum that gives teachers flexibility and students the time to learn.

I am proud to receive an “A” rating from the National Education Association because our children’s education is one of my top priorities.

Stand with me and sign my petition to oppose burdensome over-testing and unfunded federal mandates. And you can read more about my views on education reform here.

Thanks for all that you do,

Chris

New Yorkers please remember Kirsten Gillibrand’s progressive anti constitutional voting record!

Remember Kirsten Gillibrand’s progressive anti constitutional voting record. Below is an email I just received. Gillibrand does not represent the views of upstate New Yorkers but instead panders to liberal down staters. Throw progressive Sen. Chuck Schumer into the mix and upstate NY has virtually no representation in the US Senate.

Impeach Obama! Treasonous Liars, Cheaters and Thieves all!

Impeach Obama! Treasonous Liars, Cheaters and Thieves all!

Bob,

We are finally on the verge of taking action to reduce gun violence. The Senate will vote later today on a set of lifesaving, bipartisan gun safety reforms.

But – and this is an important “but” – 13 extreme Republican Senators are trying to filibuster it. The filibuster caucus, including Senators Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, James Inhofe, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and even Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is threatening to thwart the will of 90% of Americans – just to appease the NRA.

We must stop them. We cannot let the extreme right-wing sink life saving reforms. To break this filibuster, we all have to stand up and be heard. We have to act now to ensure this gets a vote. Victims and their families deserve at least that.

Click here to sign this petition urging the Senate to end the filibuster of bipartisan gun reform. You can also watch me make the case on “Morning Joe” for why this is so important.

Sign the petition to stop the filibuster. Gun violence victims deserve a vote on gun safety reform. Add your name now.Over the last week, I have seen family members of gun violence victims – from Aurora to Newtown – visit the Capitol to plead with their senators to support critical gun safety reforms. These families deserve nothing less. Really, they deserve more than a vote, they deserve for this legislation to become law.

But we cannot get it to President Obama’s desk unless we cross this filibuster hurdle.

I need you to stand with me to send an unwavering message to Senator Mitch McConnell and the filibuster caucus: Now is the time for a vote.

Sign this petition to make sure that we stop the filibuster and finally get an up-or-down vote on commonsense gun safety reforms.

Thank you,

Kirsten
