I Heart Our New Education Secretary

Betsy DeVos is guaranteed to put students’ interest over the teachers’ unions’:

“At the American Federation of Teachers, there were always Republicans we’d endorse,” recalls Matuzak, who retired from the union in 2014. “And it got to the point where … the Republicans would say, ‘Please don’t endorse me because it will hurt me with the DeVoses.’ They’d send back money because the DeVoses would punish them.”

If I were a typical ultra-liberal college president, I’d be preparing for many battles against a determined opponent with the power of the purse. DeVos could destroy almost any college by denying it federal funding for violating federal law (e.g. admitting illegal aliens.) That’s the same strategy Obama’s Education Secretary used to set up the kangaroo courts that decide fake rape cases today. Those courts can now be dismantled.

Power Line’s John Hinderaker:

[John] Lewis is invariably described as a “civil rights icon,” but the man is an utter fraud. He has been coasting on his 50-year-old reputation for decades. Andrew Breitbart exposed Lewis as a liar when he claimed, falsely, to have been subjected to racial epithets by a crowd outside the Capitol.

PoliPundit, over a year ago:

Since a solid majority of Americans now supports legalizing marijuana, a couple of dozen states will likely do so in the next few years.

Reality, today:

Legislators in more than a dozen states have introduced measures to loosen laws restricting access to or criminalizing marijuana, a rush of legislative activity that supporters hope reflects a newfound willingness by public officials to embrace a trend toward legalization.

[…]

In 2016, voters in four states — Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada and California — joined Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Colorado in passing ballot measures legalizing pot for recreational purposes. Those efforts, marijuana reform advocates say, have lifted the stigma legislators might have felt.

From the platform for the “Women’s March on Washington”:

We recognize that the call to action to love our neighbor is not limited to the United States, because there is a global migration crisis. We believe migration is a human right, and that no human being is illegal.

Perhaps we should recognize “migration” as a human right, allow billions of Third-Worlders to enter our country, and see what happens to the rape statistics. The “women” who’re marching would appreciate that, in far greater numbers than German and Swedish women have been appreciating their new “migrant” neighbors.

SJWs tried to boycott L. L. Bean because one of the owners donated to Trump. The result was this warm tweet from the president-elect:

Thank you to Linda Bean of L.L.Bean for your great support and courage. People will support you even more now. Buy L.L.Bean. @LBPerfectMaine
