Biden admin walks back ties to group pushing critical race theory in schools
[FoxNews] 'It was an error' to promote the critical race theory handbook said Biden's Department of Education.

The Biden administration blamed an "error" Wednesday after promoting a radical activist group’s handbook that pushes critical race theory in schools and calls on educators to "disrupt Whiteness."

"The Department does not endorse the recommendations of this group, nor do they reflect our policy positions," the Department of Education (DOE) said in a statement. "It was an error in a lengthy document to include this citation."

DOE linked to the Abolitionist Teaching Network’s "Guide for Racial Justice & Abolitionist Social and Emotional Learning" in its handbook intended as a "roadmap" for schools to reopen safely during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Abolitionist Teaching promotes justice, healing, joy, and liberation for all Black, Brown, and Indigenous folx, inclusive of all intersecting identities," the group’s guide states. It calls on educators to "[r]emove all punitive or disciplinary practices that spirit murder Black, Brown, and Indigenous children" and to "[b]uild a school culture that engages in healing and advocacy."

"This requires a commitment to learning from students, families, and educators who disrupt Whiteness and other forms of oppression," it states.

The guide also claims that social and emotional learning (SEL) "can be a covert form of policing used to punish, criminalize, and control Black, Brown, and Indigenous children and communities to adhere to White norms," and that "[m]ost SEL standards are rooted in Eurocentric norms, not to empower, love, affirm, or free Black, Brown, or Indigenous children."

DOE's handbook currently links to the group’s guide in a section about meeting the social, emotional, and mental health needs of students.

While the Abolitionist Teaching Network, co-founded last year by author and professor Bettina Love, does not explicitly mention critical race theory in its guide promoted by the Biden administration, the idea that racism is not aberrational and that America’s institutions are inherently racist are commonly held tenets of the theory.

The network "is dedicated to not creating new schools or reimagining schools, but destroying schools that do nothing but harm Black and brown children," Love said during a welcome webinar in October. "If you don’t recognize that White supremacy is in everything we do, then we got a problem."

Biden to meet business executives next month over cybersecurity issues
He has to nap before he can be drilled in what someone else has decided he should say on the subject.
[Iran Press TV] US President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. We get to suffer the consequences...
and his national security team are planned to hold a meeting with the country’s business executives over the cybersecurity issues.According to a National Security Council spokesperson, the meeting, which is going to be held on Aug. 25, will be specifically about what the US claims to be cyberattacks from the Russia-based criminal syndicates and cybersecurity threats from the Chinese government.

"Today more than ever, cybersecurity is an economic security and national security imperative, and both the federal government and the private sector play a critical role," the spokesperson said.

...back at the shootout, Butch clutched at his other leg......
the spokesperson provided no details about which private sector executives would attend the meeting.

Over the last months, a wave of disruptive cyberattacks, targeting the United States’ food, energy, technology sectors have made Biden put cybersecurity at the top of his agenda.

During a summit in Geneva on June 16, Biden said he and Russian President Vladimir Putin
...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances...
have agreed to work together to address cybersecurity concerns, such as ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure, including fuel pipelines.

He also asked Putin in a phone call earlier this month to clamp down on cyber hackers, warning of consequences if such attacks continued to proliferate.

there's no worse danger than telling a mother her baby is ugly...
many believe that China's alleged cyberattacks are of more significance to the Biden administration, the same old faces in slightly different places, the same old ideas, the same old graft
...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know...

This is a load of crap. The Chinese and the Russians have both been attacking us in cyberspace since the Internet was first developed. All those business executives who think it's OK to do business with the Chinese should check their computer log files some time to see all the Chinese and Russian probes that come every single day. You thought they would liberalize and become civilized if we opened our economies to trade with them? You think it's worth the cost of all the cyber attacks and bioweapon attacks? How about the way they use the profits and stolen secrets to build up their military? Think again, morons.

But one thing we know for certain. Zhou Bai Dung will do absolutely nothing about it.

Democrats planning Civilian Climate Corps of 'millions' paid at least $15 per hour
[Just The News] A group of Democrats is pushing for the creation of a Civilian Climate Corps that could employ "millions" of young people at a minimum of $15 per hour as a way to tackle climate change.

"I was proud to stand alongside Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez this year as we reintroduced the Green New Deal and also brought forward our new Civilian Conservation Corps because that legislation is a pathway to new jobs in our country, union jobs for young people," Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) said during a news conference focused on including the Civilian Climate Corps in the filibuster-proof budget reconciliation bill the Democrats are drafting.

Recruits for the envisioned corps "can, through apprentice programs, not just have a job but have a career in fighting this climate crisis and a pathway for education, a pathway for them to pay off their student loans or to go to college," Market added.

President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer have endorsed creating a Civilian Climate Corps modeled on the the Civilian Conservation Corps, a New Deal-era public work relief program.

"I am using my power as majority leader to ensure that the Civilian Climate Corps will be included in the reconciliation package, and I will fight to get the biggest boldest CCC possible," Schumer said. "Together, we're going to work to make this a strong, bold and so important reality."

Gov. Tim Walz repeats his insistence that Rep. John Thompson resign
[STARTRIBUNE] Gov. Tim Walz on Monday again insisted that state Rep. John Thompson resign over reports of multiple domestic violence accusations as House DFL leaders considered what to do about the politician's refusal to step down.

Police reports from three departments detail five domestic assault cases, some that took place in front of children, from 2003-11. Walz said the allegations have rendered the freshman DFL politician from St. Paul no longer fit to serve.

"We all make transgressions in our lives, but I just want to be clear, the information over the weekend involving multiple accusations, cases of domestic violence in front of children just makes it to where I cannot believe that the representative can continue to serve us well," Walz told news hounds after visiting a Lake Elmo middle school as part of a tour touting Minnesota's two-year education budget.

The police reports first obtained and reported by Fox 9 detail multiple arrests of Thompson after he was accused of domestic violence in Eagan, St. Paul and Superior, Wis. The Star Tribune has since obtained the reports through records requests. Multiple cases involve allegations of punching and choking, at times in front of children and other relatives. Thompson denies the allegations.

The most recent case involves a previously unreported arrest in May 2011 in St. Paul. In that case, Thompson's girlfriend, who later became his wife, told police that he tried to pull her from a car before she fell on a door jamb and that he also struck her mother.

According to the St. Paul police report, the woman said she believed Thompson would "seriously injure her because he has done it before." She told police that he threatened her "every six to eight weeks" and that she was most frightened by him when in 2003 he allegedly gave her a concussion. The woman said she did not cooperate with authorities at the time, and charges were not filed. Thompson also was not charged in connection with the May 2011 arrest.

The woman told police at the time that the two had been together for 12 years, had two children together and that Thompson had two children from a prior relationship. She and Thompson married in February 2020, according to public marriage records. She could not be reached for comment but posted on Facebook that she felt as if her family and husband were under attack.

The allegations added to a nearly two-week period in which top DFL elected officials had been pressured to respond after Thompson accused a St. Paul officer of racially profiling him when he pulled Thompson over July 4 for not having a front license plate on his car. Thompson was cited for driving under suspension and was found to have a Wisconsin driver's license but not one issued by Minnesota.

Jordan Kushner, Thompson's attorney, said in a statement Sunday that the politician "maintains the allegations are false and he was never found guilty of them in a court." He said Thompson "challenges the authenticity of the police reports that have been circulated to the press" and that he and his wife, the only person he would have been with at the time, deny the allegations. He said the reports likely were circulated by law enforcement groups engaged in a "smear campaign" against Thompson.

Yet Walz said Monday that he had no reason to dispute the accuracy of the reports.

"I think it would be very unusual for three different police departments stretching over a decade to fabricate information," he said. "I would assume that these are as represented to us."

Democrat Who Featured In Infamous 'Maskless Flight' Pic Calls For 'Universal Mask-Wearing'
[ZERO] Democrat Texas state Rep. Donna Howard, who appeared in the now infamous photo of maskless Dem lawmakers on a private jet, faced ridicule after she called for "universal mask-wearing.

Howard was one of 60 Texas Democrats who boarded a jet to Washington, D.C., to skip out on a vote on Texas’ election reform bill. A photo of the plane cabin shows Howard and several other passengers not wearing masks.

Following the trip, where they met with U.S. officials, Howard along with 5 of her colleagues tested positive for COVID-19.

She subsequently tried to deflect criticism by remarking, "TSA exempts private, non-commercial flights from the mask requirement."

"Unfortunately, the spike in infections from the delta variant became apparent immediately after our flight," Howard continued.

"Had we known at the time, we would have worn masks."

Now Howard is facing more mockery after she vehemently called for schoolchildren to be forced to wear masks in class.

#9  The group chartered two private jets at $100,000 to get the majority of the runaway members to D.C. last Monday.

Upon arriving in D.C., the group checked into the Washington Plaza Hotel in the northwest quadrant of the city. Rooms in the swanky hotel start at $200 per night and amenities include an outdoor swimming pool – a rarity for district hotels.

A Texas Democrat said Monday the runaways will need $1.5 million to stay D.C. until August 7 .
