ICYMI: Virginia School District Allows Kids to Miss School So They Can Protest Trump [Details]

This is not a good idea…

Who needs a high school education when you can be out of class protesting the Trump administration? It’s an easy thing to do when you’re not told by instructors that Trump’s policies have lowered unemployment to record low levels, while building up the economy to an all-time high.

And here lies the problem with the Democrat Party: they are filled with liars – point blank. There’s no reason whatsoever to badmouth what Trump has done for the nation, unless, of course, you’re a diehard liberal who refuses to keep up with the news.

Sorry, kids.

Happy New Year, kids! Fairfax County Public Schools in Northern Virginia will enact a new policy on January 27, 2020, which allows school students to skip school to protest.

So it begins. Fairfax County Public Schools system is one of the nation’s largest with approximately 188,000 students. With close proximity to Washington, D.C., it doesn’t take much imagination to understand where the students will be protesting. It is being touted as the first school district in the nation to incorporate this policy. The policy allows students in seventh through 12th grades to have one excused absence each school year for “civic engagement activities”.

Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro may have said what he said, but what he’s really getting at is that if his kids turned out to be pro-Trump American conservatives, he’d want nothing more to do with him.

Some kind of father right there there, huh?

Do as I say or forever be shunned based on your political beliefs? Yikes. Is this the way all beta male Democrat-voting fathers think? Don’t answer that.

He noted, “I don’t want my kids to take this the wrong way, but if my kids did what these kids did, I wouldn’t want to be related to them. I would disown them. I’d have a serious talk with them — I’d have a serious talk with them. First of all, it’s an impossibility. My kids are not like that, of course.

LOL – of course, Bob. Your kids are not proud American patriots. We get it. Great, thanks for that. Way to do your job as a parent.

During an appearance on CNN recently, De Niro blasted Fox News and Trump while dropping a few f-bombs in the process.

From Daily Wire:

Speaking with Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, De Niro said that an impeachment inquiry over President Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine “has to happen,” while chastising those who are “too gentle” about the current political situation. His comments echoed what he told Variety at the New York Film Festival over the weekend where he expressed hope that President Trump would face impeachment.

WATCH:

WATCH:

De Niro downed the entire jug of Kool-Aid.

His negative words fo Trump on a daily basis prove he’s a long way from the reservation. Dude is off the deep end.

When know-nothings like De Niro talk, it only seems to help 45’s numbers.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

Lebron james

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
