Union Upset by Comments From Emanuel on Schools

By Kyle Olson

 

As the Chicago Public Schools begin what are certain to be contentious contract talks with the Chicago Teachers Union, Mayor Rahm Emanuel emerged as the star of a new online video criticizing the union and promoting charter schools, whose teachers mostly are not unionized. An interview with Mr. Emanuel is a highlight of the 35-minute video, produced by the Michigan-based Education Action Group Foundation and the Fox News political analyst Juan Williams, who narrates the video, saying the union is “radically politicized” and is “repeatedly providing terrible examples for Chicago’s schoolchildren.” Watch Kyle on Fox & Friends.  [more...]

 

 

It’s Over… Or is it?

By Doug Johnson

 

Mitt Romney has won 8.8% of the delegates needed to win the nomination.  But there’s a long way to go, a lot of voters who are not happy with him, and plenty of time for things to change. The last time I checked, 8.8% wasn’t enough to lock up anything.  Try making an 8.8% payment on your mortgage and see if you get to keep the house without paying more. Mitt Romney has won 3 of the 5 primary/caucus contests so far.  There are a total of 56 primaries and caucuses. A candidate must have 1,144 delegates to win the GOP nomination.  Mitt has won 101 delegates so far (that’s according to the Wall Street Journal  – they show the highest number I could find for him as of this writing.  The numbers vary depending on where you look.).  Those 101 delegates are only 8.8% of the delegates he needs to be nominated – far from enough to claim that anything is a sure bet.

Trashing the Constitution

By Joseph Klein

 

Every Supreme Court justice is required, under Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, to be bound by his or her oath or affirmation “to support this Constitution.” Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just broken this commitment by insulting, in front of a foreign audience, the very document she is sworn to support. In an interview during her visit to Cairo, which aired January 30, 2012 on Al-Hayat TV, Justice Ginsburg advised the Egyptian people to ignore the U.S. Constitution in preparing their own new constitution. It’s just too “old,” she said. Instead, Justice Ginsburg lavished praise on several post-World War II foreign documents such as the South African constitution, Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the European Convention on Human Rights.

American Jobs Fallacy

 

The mainstream media could hardly hold back their glee with the January jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which showed our unemployment rate dropping to 8.3%. Hold the Dom Perignon!  The numbers are not what they seem.  In a report worthy of Soviet Central Planning, a record 1.2 million people “disappeared” from the labor force last month.  The labor participation rate is now down to a fresh thirty year low.  When looking at the internal numbers even closer, it actually gets worse. Christopher Markowski will explain to your listeners what the jobs picture is like in the “real world,” and what needs to be done to get us back on the job creation track.  Do any of the candidates have the right stuff on job creation?

 

 

Rapper Threatens Romney with Legal Action

By James Hirsen

 

Someone other than Newt Gingrich is now upset with Mitt Romney. A rapper has publicly complained that the Republican presidential candidate used his song “Wavin’ Flag” without permission. Somali-born, Canadian-based rapper and songwriter K’Naan has released a statement indicating the Romney campaign had played the song without consent after Romney’s Florida primary victory speech. K’Naan said even if the campaign had sought approval, he would not have granted permission. However, the rapper indicated that he would happily grant President Barack Obama’s campaign authority to use the song. K’Naan said he is seeking legal action to make sure Romney does not use his song again. [more...]
