'The School of No!': Do you really need more evidence than this that progressivism has failed America's youth?

How many times have you heard the argument in your lifetime, if it just helps one child, then it’s worth it, just one child, one, you know, big-eyed, little, one-eyed child? If we just help them, then it’s worth it. They use it all the time. Don’t believe me?

Jay Carney: If even one child’s life can be saved by the actions we take here in Washington, we must take those actions.

President Obama: This act is about doing what’s right for our children.

Michelle Obama: There is nothing Democratic or Republican, liberal or conservative, about doing what’s best for our kids.

Arne Duncan: Most importantly for our children.

President Obama: This is our first task, caring for our children.

Michelle Obama: In the end, nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our children, nothing.

Does anybody buy any of this bull crap from these people anymore? And I mean that for the right as well. I hear a Conservative say yeah, we’ve got to do it for the children, shut up, shut up. We’ll just do it for the children, it’s so stupid. Even if it just saves one child, let’s save the stupidity of that argument for a minute, and let’s focus just on the reality, because it isn’t about the children, and that’s what makes me so angry about it. It isn’t about the children. If things for the children were really getting better, well then maybe.

Let me take you to schools here for a second. Do you remember the union thug that was one of the only ones that was willing to admit the truth because he was leaving the union? Watch.

Bob Chanin: Which is why at least in my opinion NEA and its affiliates are such effective advocates. Despite what some among us would like to believe, it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merits of our positions. It is not because we care about children, and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power.

Wow, is that amazing? Oh, there goes Glenn Beck again, throwing around baseless allegations – did you hear this guy? It’s because they have power, one truthful union member. Okay, so what are they doing with that power? Are they helping the kids? Because they get things done because they have power, but in the end, does it help the kids?

I want to introduce you to another public school. This one’s in Far Rockaway Queens. Prepare yourself to be horrified and see something that I think this is what it’s like in North Korea. It’s a Title 1 school, which means they get extra federal funding, but nobody seems to know where it’s going, and they’re wondering because it certainly is not going to the school.

They’re getting an additional about $2.5 million every year. Two hundred thirty-four kids show up to school every day in this building, but there’s no art class. There is no gym class. There’s no music class. Oh see, see what you Conservatives are doing? You’re cutting the gym. You’re cutting the music. You’re cutting the art. No, there is also no nurse’s office. There are no substitute teachers when a teacher is out. There is no special ed, even though a teacher for special ed is required.

There are no books even for the Common Core curriculum. When you’re supposed to be teaching Common Core, how are you doing it without books? Now, sure, the art, the gym, all conservatives hate that, but how about math? There’s no math program. The kindergarten class sit down in trailers that “reek of animal urine.” “Rats and squirrels noisily scamper in the walls and ceiling.”

Well, what is it the kids are doing all day? What are they doing? They don’t have math. They don’t have gym. They don’t have art. They don’t have reading. They don’t have books. What are they doing? Are you ready? They’re watching movies all day, lots and lots of movies, not educational films. Monsters, Inc. was one film that they aired last week for the whole school.

You’d ask yourself who is in charge of this childhood hell? Well, the principal’s name is Marcella Sills. She’s been the principal there for almost a decade. Predictably she is rarely showing up for work, and when she does, it’s usually after 11:00 AM. Oh boy, are you judging her because she’s black? According to the New York Post last week, Sills missed every day except one, and the day she showed up, it wasn’t until the kids had already been dismissed for the day.

Okay, alright, let’s cut her some slack. She was probably sick. Yeah, not really. She didn’t appear that way. Here she is spotted driving around in her BMW all around town when she wasn’t at school. Boy, she looks really nice. I mean, she’s all dressed up. She’s got the glamour lipstick on. She’s got that nice fur coat and hat, huh? Now she’s a struggling educator. For her efforts when she shows up, she is paid $128,207 a year, but that’s not all. She also gets bonuses on top of that because of all of the overtime that she works.

Nothing is about the children, nothing. Nothing is being done, they’re not doing anything for these 234 kids, and no one seems to care in the system. You know what, let me take that back. See, there he goes again, Glenn Beck flying off the handle saying she’s not done anything for the kids. That’s not true. That’s not true. Every year she does make the parents pay $200 each so their kids can attend some sort of strange annual prom-like wedding event.

The boys have to dress in mini tuxedos, and the women have to wear like white gowns. Isn’t that great? Uh huh, and then Queen Sills, the principal, enters. She is the queen of the ball, of course.

I’m going to give you an update that should make this better, but it doesn’t. There’s an investigation now into the school, and because of the investigation, Sills showed up on work on time on Monday, first time in six or seven years according to sources inside the school. Wow! Do you have the picture of her showing up at school? There she is. And what’s nice is she was dressed to impress. I don’t know if she had to go right out afterwards, you know, for, you know, a night on the town or what, but she looks good. She looks good.

Also, the Department of Education investigator, not really troubled by anything that they saw there. In fact, I’ll let them explain.

VIDEO

Dorita Gibson: I don’t know if I’ll be recommending further investigation, but we will be making some recommendations, because, as you know, this is Far Rockaway, and this school was part of the tragedy of Sandy.

Tiffany?

Tiffany: Yes?

Why didn’t you tell me that this school was hit by Hurricane Sandy?

Tiffany: I know, it totally changes the story.

It totally changes the story. I didn’t know that. Sandy just happened how long ago, just like not very long ago, okay? Nothing to see here. I apologize. There was a storm which obviously means kids can watch movies all day for the next year and a half while principal bunny fur takes a spin in her BMW. It’s great.

Now, it has taken just a few reports by the New York Post for someone to actually check into things, but you saw what they’re going to do. Nearly a decade this school has been churning kids through this system and sending them out into the world with absolutely no chance of success, unless they want to replace Siskel and/or Ebert. That’s it. Nearly a decade, and no one really has cared.

Now, there’s two indictments here: Number one indictment, parents. How long would you let your kids sit in that school? How long? Now, if you’re underprivileged, what do you do? You raise holy hell, that’s what you do. But do you think very many kids, 234 kids, been going on for a decade, this is the way it’s been, do you think any of the parents are sitting down with their kids and saying, “Hey, what happened in school today? What did you learn in math today?”

This has been going. They don’t have math books. They don’t have book books. They don’t have a library. They have nothing. Anybody ask? So number one indictment, parents, where are they? Number two, media, where are they? You know what they’re doing with their time today? I kid you not, there is currently or there was 20 minutes before we went on air, there was a banner. Do we have the pictures? Yeah, here it is.

Here’s CNN. They got a chopper over Justin Bieber’s house, okay? FOX and CNN, breaking news alerts, they’re investigating at Justin Bieber’s house – I better sit down for this – an egg throwing incident. Yes, Justin Bieber, can you believe it, has been in a spat with his neighbors. Why is TheBlaze – Tiffany?

Tiffany Yes?

Glenn Thank you. First of all, you give me a story, and you left out the hurricane, and now Justin Bieber, and what are we covering? We’re covering the neglected crumbling public school.

Here’s why I think this is really an important story for you to share with a friend, because the world is absolutely upside down. I don’t think I need to remind you, but you need to remind your friends that the people who brought you this fail, this factory fail of a school are the same people who are going to be running America’s healthcare system. See, greed is an interesting thing. You want to talk about greed, they always talk about the capitalists that are greedy.

People are greedy, people. Racism, that’s a human disease, okay? Greed, racism, human disease, all people have it. And I can tell you right now that you’re greedy. If I said to you right now that everybody in your office except maybe 20% are going to be laid off, are you the one that’s going to march in and say, you know what, I’m probably the weakest link in the chain, or do you keep your mouth shut and your head down, and you try to be the one? You’re greedy. Or are you a survivalist?

You see, greed comes in many forms. Hey, how come people in Poland and all across Europe didn’t raise their hand and say hey, maybe we should stop putting Jews into the ovens? You know why? Greed. What are you talking about? Well, some people got rich running that system.

Do you know that there is a trademark on the door of the crematorium, a trademark? Because that company thought they were going to – this is true – they thought they were going to get rich making the crematoriums because once Nazism hits the whole world, we’re going to be burning people in ovens all over the world.

Greed, but how about the people who didn’t raise their hand and say hey, what happened to my neighbor? That was greed too. You were greedy for your children, your time, your life. See, greed is human, and greed happens. And it happens with Socialism and Progressivism like nobody’s business, and it hits the poor the hardest because they’re the ones whose kids are forced first into the rat-infested schools. They are the ones who are forced into an awful healthcare system.

You go there as well. Everybody goes there unless you’re willing to compromise and play ball with the people at the top. And their friends, the greediest of them all, they get in. It seems no amount of failure ever stops Socialism and Progressivism from marching on, and we are watching the progressive mecca that is Detroit crumble right in front of us. And yet, we’re saying hey, let’s do that again around the whole country. Let’s do that everywhere.

There’s an amazing YouTube video out right now with 14 million views. It’s called Income Inequality in America, and it makes a really good case if you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. We have to put together a response to this, 14 million views. Socialism fails every time. They don’t explain this, because there’s always somebody that wants to get wealthy, and how do you get wealthy in a socialist system? You’re the one that says no, I’m going to make sure everything is equal. That way you get kickbacks.

Never ever, ever, in all of human history has big government Progressivism, Communism, or Marxism, ever, ever, ever worked, never; However, where there is capitalism, yes, there is greed, and there is inequality; however, because of the free market, people live. Because of the free market, people change stations, people who are poor. I was flat broke in 1999, flat broke. I couldn’t afford my apartment. It was like $700 a month. I couldn’t afford it. Now look at me.

What happened? I can lift myself out of poverty. I can change my station in life. Now I’m a greedy capitalist. Before I was a poor schlub that somebody had to help. Yesterday, we had a guy on from the Tea Party in Italy, and he gets it better than most Americans. Why? Because he’s in the belly of the beast, the far-left beast, the socialist beast, the communist beast, the fascist beast, the Mussolini beast. He’s seen it. He had the answer for America and the rest of the world. Listen.

Carlo: In the Second World War, the German army and the SS take some people from their home, and they put these people on the oven. They kill more than 6 million people. The SS, it was under respect to the German Nazist rules. But these kind of rules is the human rules. The natural rules is another kind of rules, and they come from the God. I think that if we stay concentrate – of course, it’s not easy, but if we stay concentrate on these rules, we really can build a better world.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

RELATED: Just another day in Iran: Parliment chants death to America after Trump pulls out of nuclear deal

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

RELATED: Here's why Israel used lethal force during mass protests in Gaza yesterday

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
