Awful: Lib reporter goes after 6th grade honor roll student

On radio this morning, Glenn played one of the most agonizing news reports you will ever hear. After learning of a pizza and dance party for straight-A students at Eastern Middle School in Silver Spring, Maryland, a local reporter headed to the school to get reaction from students and parents. What happened next was mindboggling, as the reporter shamed the straight-A students for being rewarded for their efforts.

Watch the WTTG report below:

“I can't take it… Stop. Stop. Stop,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “Even the A-students didn't think it was all that right. Probably because they have been indoctrinated from the very beginning in socialist tendencies, and beyond that they've got a reporter sticking a microphone in their face and going, ‘Do you think that's right?’ They're [sixth] graders… I don't know!”

Beyond the unprofessional and leading questions posed by the reporter, there is a larger issue at play here. As Glenn explained, all students are not punished when one kid acts out and gets detention. So why would all kids be rewarded when one student performs better than everyone else?

“You know what’s so weird? If they continue to look into this, I'll bet you that not all students are invited to be in detention. Isn't that weird? Not everybody is allowed into detention. That's weird,” Glenn quipped. “It's called punishment… Or in this case it's called incentive… Job well done… What a concept. What kind of nutty, outdated extremist, concepts is this school teaching? It's pretty radical, isn't it? If your grades are not up to snuff, you don't get an invitation at all. You see what I'm saying?”

This mindset that everyone deserves a participation trophy just for showing up has crept into our schools as well. When it comes to the progressive goal of fundamentally transforming America, teaching our youth that equal opportunity and equal outcome are one in the same is dangerous:

This is progressive, Marxist, bull crap indoctrination. This is equal outcome indoctrination. This is your fundamental transformation of the United States of America… This is the secret of life: There are people who are willing to do things that you are not willing to do…

I was here last Friday. And I walked through this office. Everything is shut up. There's like only three people here. Now, it's 9:30 on a Friday night. And I come in. I noticed what three people were here. I know who they are. And if you don't think that the first in and the last out are noticed, they are… I could go through this whole building and say, ‘This person puts in an awful lot of time’… Doesn't mean they're all going to rise to the top… but I will tell you, they have a better shot at making it. Not because I've seen them, but because they are innovating all the time. The ones who are at work and, you know, get up in the middle of the night and say, ‘I couldn't sleep last night. I had to come in and I had to finish this.’ Those are the people that excel. Now, you don't have to choose that. And life does not require you to do that. But a certain level of success does require you to do that…

America was founded on the principles of merit… This is exactly what your kid should be learning in school. Merit. Merit. And if they're not learning that, it is time to find a school that does. Or quite honestly, and I know this sounds crazy, but if you can't find a school that will teach merit and accomplishment and eternal truths, then you've got to go start one because that's who Americans are. When you see a problem and you say, ‘Somebody has to fix it,’ stop saying ‘somebody’. Fix it! Because that's how we fix our country.

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
