This Week So Far: A quick summary of news you can use
Guess Who’s Linked To a HUGE Secret Russian Nuclear Deal
The Hill reports – Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.
Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.
Hillary may be soon trading her pant suit for an orange jump suit.
Conservative Firing Line asks, How is it possible to sexually mistreat hardcore feminists and get away with it for years? Hollywood feminists have a reputation for being walking land mines with hair triggers.
Harvey Weinstein is the man who could offer them starring roles in Hollywood movies. Could that have something to do with the silence of the feminists?
Think about that. More than one of these women has said that she went along with the sexual mistreatment because she felt that she had to, in order to protect her career. So much for feminism.
Are some of these women genuine victims? I’m sure they are, and Harvey probably deserves to be in a jail cell. It appears to me that getting those starring roles was more important than their “women’s rights.”
Teacher Suspended for Taking a Knee
Windy Pappas, a chemistry teacher at Woodland High School in California was suspended for her actions during a homecoming rally in the gymnasium. When the Star Spangled Banner began playing, Pappas took a knee, placed her hand on her heart and held up a sign that said “Black Lives Matter.” The rally went off without a hitch otherwise, but after the kids returned to class, a school administrator went to Pappas’ class and sent her home. She was allowed to return to class the following Tuesday.
It may come as a shock to some of you but teachers have a first Amendment right but not during school hours. Teachers are not allowed to be political or to endorse a particular view. Their job is to encourage thoughtful discussions on the subjects they teach, with both sides represented equally.
The instructional role of a teacher is one of neutral facilitator – one who facilitates student discussion and intelligent analysis of current events.
As someone has said: Why do so many white SJWs hold signs that say Black Lives Matter? Is that the new equivalent of “Some of my best friends are black?”
