‘Hurry up and die’: Threats,Rracism intensify against Kevin de León? “Dear Corrupt Mexican” and ends with “hurry up and die., Sorry To Tell Ever One, This Now A Race Hoxa , White's Are Now In The Minority And Mexican” Are In The majority Here Calf!
The letter begins with “Dear Corrupt Mexican” and ends with “hurry up and die.” It’s signed “White Power.”
The words were typed on a note card and sent to Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León’s Capitol office earlier this year. His staff members put the letter in a file now full of racist and threatening mail in the receptionist’s desk.
The Senate leader says backlash comes with the territory as an elected official. Since his freshmen year in the Assembly, radical opponents occasionally add derogatory ethnic slurs and references to their complaints, he said.
Since November, however, he and other politicians says it’s been more frequent and hostile

If any head of state is facing a political choice between the noose and the firing squad, it is Nicolas Maduro, the brutal, bumbling president of Venezuela who has led his country down the path to chaos and misery. For him, the end is near.
Maduro was never more than a pale imitation of Hugo Chavez, the Marxist Svengali who ran the country until his death in 2013. Lacking the charisma and bravado of the former general, Maduro nonetheless tried to expand Chavez’s loony vision of “Bolivarian revolution,” marked by nationalization of private companies, alliances with rogues like Iran and North Korea, and a steady theft of the individual rights of Venezuelans.
The country’s growing and increasingly determined opposition has warned Maduro to cancel the vote, yet he appears determined to follow through on his plan. But here’s the rub: if he carries out the vote, the opposition has promised to shut down the country with protests, which of late have become lethal events, further enraging the population. If he caves and cancels, he looks weak, which for desperate dictators can be fatal. Either way, Maduro loses.
Venezuela is the 21st century’s freshest example of the failure of socialist cant to fit into the real world. Invoking Bolivar, Fidel Castro, Marx and Lenin these days is like trying to get people to pay for dial-up internet service. Venezuelans know they’re being had, and they’ve had enough.Venezuela is the 21st century’s freshest example of the failure of socialist cant to fit into the real world.

New York Times Publishes Reporter’s Rant About ‘White Women’ Not Getting Out of His Way, So Tell Me Again, How Women Can Do The Same Thing As Man? Wow, Check Out All That Gender Equality, , MAN YOU CAN SEE IT , ALL OVER THE PLACE hERE!
The New York Times published a diatribe from a black reporter Wednesday, in which he slammed “white women” for not getting out of his way as he walks through Manhattan.In the article, called “Was That Racist?” the Times published a series of short stories supposedly describing the complexities of figuring out if someone has been racist to you.
“Everyday life brings awkward moments for everyone, but some of our daily stories are infused with added tension, especially if one or more of those involved perceive that race is a determining factor,” the intro to the article says.
But one of the stories, from Sunday Metropolitan reporter Greg Howard, seems to have its own problems with racism. Describing himself as a “good walker” who is also courteous with changing sides, speed, or moving around pedestrians in the Big Apple, he says that, while most other pedestrians do the same, “white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not.”
He then launches into a rant about how “white women” — not “some white women,” or “certain white women,” or “white women of a certain background/age/location” — just don’t seem to be able to get out the male reporter’s way:
Sometimes they’re buried in their phones. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation. But often, they’re looking ahead, through me, if not quite at me. When white women are in my path, they almost always continue straight, forcing me to one side without changing their course. This happens several times a day; and a couple of times a week, white women force me off the sidewalk completely. In these instances, when I’m standing in the street or in the dirt as a white woman strides past, broad-shouldered and blissful, I turn furious.Howard says he gets out of the way because, “as a black man, I’ve learned that bodychecking, bumping or even rubbing against a random white woman can be personally hazardous.”
He says he changes his stride even if they don’t and notes that “white men and all people of color” offer him the same courtesy.
He then says he’s left with a series of questions about why white women won’t get out of his way, inviting the conclusion that they are in fact racist and fearful of black men:
After these encounters, I’m always left with questions. Why only and specifically white women? Do they refuse to acknowledge me because they’ve been taught that they should fear black men, and that any acknowledgment of black men can invite danger? Do they refuse to acknowledge me because to alter their route would be to show their fear? Do they not see me? Can they not see me?The only self-reflection Howard has about his diatribe is to ask himself why he gets out of their way in the first place:
Why haven’t I ever just walked headlong into a rude white woman? What lessons tug at me, force me off the sidewalk, tell me that my personal space is not necessarily mine? Because explicit in every white woman’s decision not to get out of my way is the expectation that I’ll get out of theirs.He notes that “there have always been white women in my life,” even assuring the reader that some of his friends are white women, but he adds that, when he asks them about why “they” don’t reroute for black men, “they invariably express ignorance.”
“Whenever that happens, another question always arises: Wait, am I crazy? But then I ask black men. Invariably, they know what I’m talking about,” he says.
Just to make his argument absolutely ironclad, he polishes it off with a story from an unidentified “Asian friend” who offers another perspective.
“A couple of weeks ago, I asked an Asian friend if he had the same experience of white women not getting out of his way. He said no. For whatever reason, white women see him just fine. The people who don’t, he said, are white men,” he writes.

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed Wednesday, at a rally hosted by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), that the GOP’s budget proposal rather than preventing violence “stirs it up.”
Pelosi was referring to the proposed increase in funding for the military rather than social welfare programs.
"A budget that says we do not measure the strength of our country in the health, education, and well-being of our people, we only measure it in military might," Pelosi said. "You know what that does? It requires more military might. It takes us down the wrong path."
Pelosi did acknowledge the importance of national defense but said it was beside the point.
"We take an oath to protect and defend whatever the mission is, whatever we need, as President Kennedy said, ‘Fight any foe,'" Pelosi said. "But that's not the point of this."
"This is supposed to be a budget that prevents the spread of violence," Pelosi said. "Instead, they have a budget that stirs it up."
This is not the first time Pelosi has made claims that Republicans cause violence. Last month Pelosi blamed Trump’s rhetoric in part for the shooting at a Congressional baseball practice that left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) in critical condition in the hospital after being shot in the hip.
Pelosi said Thursday that she spoke to Scalise, who is currently in fair condition in the hospital following many surgeries. She said “he sounded wonderful,” and that she let him know of fellow lawmakers’ prayers for his recovery.
House Budget Chair Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) defended national defense spending as a priority in the budget writing, "Over the last eight years, we’ve seen a weakening of our military potential and readiness. The failed foreign policy of the Obama years has left us in a position where our allies don’t respect us and our enemies don’t fear us. Our budget seeks to change that dynamic by significantly increasing our spending on national defense so that we can provide our men and women in uniform with the resources they need to face the growing threats around the globe."

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) dubiously denied saying various GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare would “potentially kill Americans” when a co-host of ABC News’ “The View” pressed him Wednesday about the use of “irresponsible rhetoric.”
Sanders appeared on “The View” as Republicans were in the throes of dealing with their latest inability to pass a bill that would dismantle Obamacare and provide relief to Americans suffering under the law’s burdensome regulations and mandates.
Through each step in the process, Sanders predicted death and destruction for millions of Americans if GOP efforts came to fruition.
But when “The View” co-host Jedediah Bila cornered him on his previous statements and the rhetoric used by other prominent Democrats, Sanders appeared to suffer a bout of forgetfulness.

The "Everyone Gets A Trophy" philosophy is destroying education in America. A new report by USA Today provides yet more evidence that our schools are failing to equip our students, presenting two statistics that highlight both the root and result of this failure.
In what one researcher described as a "stunning" finding, a recent analysis of the grades of America's Class of 2016 found that nearly half of seniors graduated with "A" averages. A total of 47% of seniors' grade averages were either an A, A-minus, or A-plus. That is a nearly 10% increase in about two decades. In 1998, 38.9% of graduating senior's had A averages.
While nearly half of the Class of 2016 graduated with A averages, another 43.7% graduated with B's (down from 47.9% in '89). Thus, 91% of high school graduates in 2016 had either an A or B average. Only 8.9% graduated with a C average (down from 12.7% in '98).
So does the higher percentage of A's and B's really mean that students are mastering the subject matter at a higher rate? No. As USA Today stresses, while A's are on the rise, the average SAT score has fallen "from 1,026 to 1,002 on a 1,600-point scale."
The numbers come from a study by two researchers, the College Board's Michael Hurwitz and University of Georgia Institute of Higher Education doctoral student Jason Lee. Hurwitz, who described the 47% result as "stunning," said that A's are now simply the "modal high school grade."
Federal statistics also found that graduation rates are up to over 83%; however, college students continue to show signs of being ill-equipped, including delayed completion rates.
When in college, students are likewise enjoying grade inflation, as GradeInflation.com's Stuart Rojstaczer explained to USA Today:
According to Rojstaczer, close to 50% of all college grades given are A’s, a far cry from even two decades ago, when the average GPA at a four-year college was 3.11.Rojstaczer tied college grade inflation to the Vietnam War, saying that in the 1960's instructors began to be more generous with grades in order to protect students from conscription.
He recently told USA TODAY that A’s are now three times more common than they were in 1960.

S.J.W Opponents of Trump Pick Cite 6th Circuit Nominee's Blog Posts, Anti-Gay Slur? What S.J.W Anti-Gay Slur , When It ComeTto Gay llbertarian Like Milo Yiannopoulos? S,J.W Anti-Gay Slur Double Standard
WASHINGTON -- Senate leaders are clashing over a Louisville attorney and former blogger picked by President Trump for an appellate court post, with Republicans charging obstructionism and Dems calling the nominee anti-LGBT and anti-woman.
Trump nominated John K. Bush, a partner and co-chairman of the litigation department at the Louisville office of Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, on May 8 to serve as a judge on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Bush's nomination was pushed through the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday by an 11-9 party-line vote. He survived a procedural vote in the full Senate today 51-48, another party-line vote with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) absent.
The attorney penned more than 400 posts on the "Elephants in the Bluegrass" blog run by his wife, including op-eds criticizing the State Department's wording change to allow same-sex couples to be listed as parents on passport applications, calling the Dred Scott decision upholding slavery and the Roe v. Wade ruling on abortion "the two greatest tragedies in our country," and referring to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as "Mama Pelosi."
