IRONY: Who Controversial Obama Official Susan Rice’s Son Supports Politically is Going to Give Her Fits

This has got to be burning her up!

Published

In a twist of irony so delicious it’s just simply too good to pass up, one of Stanford University’s most vocal conservative leaders is none other than Obama official Susan Rice’s son, John David Rice-Cameron.

Rice-Cameron is a huge supporter of President Donald Trump and is totally dedicated to the “Make America Great Again” agenda, a fact that you just know is making his mother turn about fifty shades of red in both embarrassment and anger.

Just imagine the rather lively conversations at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

John David Rice-Cameron, 20, told Fox News on Wednesday that the Tea Party movement inspired him to move away from his parents’ politics and become a conservative.

Rice was one of the Obama administration’s most unpopular officials among conservatives and Republicans because of her attempt, as U.N. ambassador, to blame the 2012 terrorist attack on two American facilities in Benghazi, Libya on an offensive YouTube video.

Though they are polar opposites politically, the son who avidly supports President Trump and the mother who is a diehard liberal enjoy a solid relationship.

“My mother and I have a great relationship, and my mother believes strongly in the free and respectful exchange of ideas,” Rice-Cameron told Fox News. “We disagree on most of the standard Republican/Democrat disagreements. However, we agree that America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and thus, we believe that America has an important role to play as a force for liberty and justice on the world stage.”

Rice-Cameron, who is a sophomore, is president of the College Republicans on campus and the activism director for the California College Republicans. Like his mother, who is a Stanford alumnus, he does not shy away from controversy.

The young man already has an impressive resume of conservative activism as he’s pushed for a professor with ties to Antifa to resign, put pressure on his school to reverse it’s decision concerning banning American flags on club t-shirts, and more.

Rice-Cameron is proof that even if you have liberal parents, some kids are actually capable of thinking for themselves, examining their parents’ worldview and making up their own minds.

This is why it’s critical for conservatives to continue blogging, creating video content and so on, putting the truth out there so that people have easy access to the truth. You never know who will be influenced by what is put out there.

TX School Administrator Suggests Teaching ‘Opposing Viewpoints’ to The Holocaust

State level authorities were quick to shut that theory down.

Published

on

There is apparently some sever confusion in the Lone Star State regarding the nature of a new law regarding public school curriculums, and it has many around the nation alarmed.

The idea of school as a place to open your mind and absurd a variety of different viewpoints is nothing new.  In fact, it isn’t hard to argue that this is perhaps exactly what the public education system should be doing.

But there are some viewpoints out there that do not meet the standard of our civilized society, and one school administrator in Texas appears to believe that the new law requires these heinous conspiracy theories to become part of the classroom.

A top administrator with the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective, according to an audio recording obtained by NBC News.

Gina Peddy, the Carroll school district’s executive director of curriculum and instruction, made the comment Friday afternoon during a training session on which books teachers can have in classroom libraries. The training came four days after the Carroll school board, responding to a parent’s complaint, voted to reprimand a fourth grade teacher who had kept an anti-racism book in her classroom.

A Carroll staff member secretly recorded the Friday training and shared the audio with NBC News.

“Just try to remember the concepts of [House Bill] 3979,” Peddy said in the recording, referring to a new Texas law that requires teachers to present multiple perspectives when discussing “widely debated and currently controversial” issues. “And make sure that if you have a book on the Holocaust,” Peddy continued, “that you have one that has an opposing, that has other perspectives.”

State officials were quick to point out that this is not what the new law suggests.

Clay Robison, a spokesman for the Texas State Teachers Association, a union representing educators, said there’s nothing in the new Texas law explicitly dealing with classroom libraries. Robison said the book guidelines at Carroll, a suburban school district near Fort Worth, are an “overreaction” and a “misinterpretation” of the law. Three other Texas education policy experts agreed.

“We find it reprehensible for an educator to require a Holocaust denier to get equal treatment with the facts of history,” Robison said. “That’s absurd. It’s worse than absurd. And this law does not require it.”

Some lawmakers responded as well.

State Sen. Bryan Hughes, an East Texas Republican who wrote Senate Bill 3, denied that the law requires teachers to provide opposing views on what he called matters of “good and evil” or to get rid of books that offer only one perspective on the Holocaust.

“That’s not what the bill says,” Hughes said in an interview Wednesday when asked about the Carroll book guidelines. “I’m glad we can have this discussion to help elucidate what the bill says, because that’s not what the bill says.”

Denial of The Holocaust, (or the severity of it), has long been seen as a hallmark of white supremacists, and is considered a form of antisemitism.

Laundrie Lawyer Goes on the Offensive After TV Host Implicates Parents

Someone’s getting testy…

Published

on

The story of Gabby Petito’s death has captured the attention of the nation in recent weeks, largely due to the strange circumstances surrounding her disappearance, her fiancé’s unwillingness to cooperate with police, his parents’ bizarre behavior, and then, of course the fact that he went missing just hours before Petito’s body was found.

None of these things have screamed innocence in the eyes of the Americans who’ve been following along at home, and Laundrie’s disappearance has allowed speculation to run rampant.

This is true not only for the Joe Anybody, but for television detectives as well, and this hasn’t sat well with a lawyer for the Laundrie family.

Brian Laundrie’s attorney Steve Bertolino tore into “America’s Most Wanted” creator John Walsh Thursday, the morning after the longtime TV host aired an ID channel special on the unsolved homicide of the Florida man’s former fiancée, Gabby Petito.

“Gabby Petito: ID Special Report” delved into the details surrounding the 22-year-old Petito’s slaying and Laundrie’s status as a fugitive on a federal bank fraud warrant.

Walsh has long suggested that Brian may have made a run for the border, or be hiding out on the Appalachian Trail – a place that he was once familiar with.

This is where Bertolino got testy.

“I absolutely believe that his family is helping him stay on the run,” said Walsh, who also hosts “In Pursuit with John Walsh” on ID.

Bertolino snapped back at such speculation.

“Dusty relics like that Dog and John Walsh need a tragic situation like this so they can clear the cobwebs off their names and give their publicity-hungry egos some food,” Bertolino told Fox News Digital, also taking aim at Duane “Dog” Chapman, the reality TV star and real-life bounty hunter who entered the search for Laundrie late last month.

Police have returned to the vast wilderness of the Carlton Reserve in their search for Laundrie, this time bringing K-9 units trained to detect human decomposition.
