How do educators keep getting away with this?

Life is tough for America-loving, pro-Trump, pro-military students in school these days.

It’s not President Trump’s fault. It’s the mainstream media’s fault for portraying 45 as a monster.

That much couldn’t be more clear.

Check out what happened to an eighth-grade boy who simply made a battlefield cross for a school project…

From Daily Wire:

Eighth grader Tyler Carlin needed an idea for a history project. He chose to create a replica of the battlefield cross, which is used on the battlefield or at camp to mark the death of a fallen soldier.

Carlin told Fox News that his teacher knew he would be making the replica and said it would be alright. But when Carlin showed up to his Ohio school with his project — made from a helmet, boots and a Nerf dart gun — it was promptly taken away. He also said he was given a 3-day in-school suspension.

Suspended for…showing some pride? For what, exactly, really?

Come on, man.

When is enough ever going to be enough?

Liberal educators have just gone way over the top with all their nonsense.

More:

“I just sat in a room all day. An administrator thought it was stupid that I got this, so she brought me a doughnut and played cards with me,” he said on “Fox & Friends.” His attorney, Travis Faber, is demanding the school expunge the “ridiculous” suspension from the middle school student’s record and had asked the school to delay Carlin’s suspension — to no avail.

“We are greatly concerned about the message the actions of the Celina School District will send to our community’s youth,” Faber told WTOL. “He [Tyler] should be thanked for his hard work and dedication to our veterans and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”

Trump gave a rousing speech at this year’s CPAC event that had conservatives cheering.

One quote about signing a new executive order on free speech, though, sent a stark warning to liberal American colleges.

From The Hill:

President Trump announced Saturday he intends to sign an executive order mandating colleges and universities take steps to guarantee free speech to attain federal research grants.

Trump: “We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and dangerous ideas. These ideas are dangerous. Instead we believe in free speech, including online and including on campus.

Trump: “Today I’m proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research grants.

Trump sent this tweet back in February:

If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

Why is it that President Trump not only has to fight Democrats to get his America first agenda across, but he has to go through stubborn Republicans, too?

Did Barack Obama have this problem with members of his party?

Nope.

U.S. Gymnast McKayla Maroney Accuses the FBI of protecting a Pedophile in Dr. Nassar Sex Abuse Case

McKayla Maroney went on the attack as she testified about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast McKayla Maroney went on the attack Wednesday as she testified about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. Maroney had harsh words for the fumbling, complicit FBI, accusing them of falsifying documents and protecting a pedophile with their failed investigation.

Appearing with fellow gymnasts Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and Maggie Nichols before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Maroney took aim at the FBI’s inability to get to the truth and walking away allowing Dr. Nassar to continue sexually abusing hundreds of young athletes.
In her testimony (See full statement), McKayla Maroney said that she was shocked to discover that the FBI failed to fully investigate so many of the claims of sexual abuse. And she was aghast to learn that the FBI agents that did attend to her accusations made up “entirely false claims” about what she told them.

“After reading the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) report, I was shocked and deeply disappointed at this narrative they chose to fabricate. They chose to lie about what I said and protect a serial child molester rather than protect not only me, but countless others,” Maroney told the senators before her.

Maroney went on to say that she described the abuse she suffered in minute detail, but when she was done, she felt the FBI investigators acted as if her experience was not that bad, and she felt they dismissed her testimony with a gruff “is that all?”

“Those words in itself was one of the worst moments of this entire process for me. To have my abuse be minimized and disregarded by the people who were supposed to protect me, just to feel like my abuse was not enough”

Worse, Maroney said she found out that the FBI agents didn’t even bother to write down her statement for a year and a half, and when they finally get around to doing so, they just made it all up and did not report what she actually said.

“What is the point of reporting abuse if our own FBI agents are going to take it upon themselves to bury that report in a drawer,” she added. “They had legal, legitimate evidence of child abuse and did nothing.”

“Let’s be honest,” Maroney said accusingly, “by not taking immediate action from my report, they allowed a child molester to go free for more than a year, and this inaction directly allowed Nassar’s abuse to continue.

The FBI eventually fired Indianapolis field office supervisory special agent Michael Langeman who the agency finally determined had utterly mishandled the investigation into the sex abuse allegations. More recently, in July Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz that blasted Indianapolis agency chief W. Jay Abbott for his failure to respond to the allegations “with the urgency that the allegations required.”

More than 70 young gymnasts in ages ranging from 12 to 19 continued to suffer sexual abuse after the FBI’s failed investigation into the allegations.

Airline Kicks Family Off Flight After Toddler Removes Mask During Asthma Attack

Unbelievable.

Published

on

At times, it is easy to see why some of us are losing faith in humanity as a whole.

Somewhere in the mix, we’ve all turned cold and calculated.  Mathematically prepared for litigation at all times.  We’re robotic in our understanding of the rules and consequences, but all the while shunning common sense and the idea that decency often depends on extenuating circumstances.

Such was the case this week on an American Airlines flight.

A mother and her 2-year-old son were forced to deplane an American Airlines flight on Monday after the child would not keep a mask on.

Amanda Pendarvis posted to her Instagram story that she, her young son and her mother were removed from the flight. Pendarvis said her son was having an asthma attack at the time.

Flight 1284 returned to its gate at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport before departing for Colorado after the party refused to “comply with crew member instructions to remain seated while on an active taxiway and to wear face coverings securely over their nose and mouth,” American Airlines said in a statement to FOX Business.

The company attempted to shift the blame in a statement.

The airline said crew members were never made aware that the child was having an asthma attack or issues breathing. Additionally, the passengers were not addressed for failure to comply with face-covering requirements at any point while administering treatment, according to the carrier.

The move comes amid a heated national debate on COVID-19 precautions, and among a populace who is growing ever more irate with the idea of remaining masked indefinitely.
