Big news on the...textbook front? The front page of Monday’s New York Times was dominated by the results of education reporter Dana Goldstein’s examination of differences between history textbooks approved for California students, and those given to students in Texas: “Two States. Eight Textbooks. Two American Stories.” This paragraph was unintentionally revealing of the paper’s Bernie Sanders-style economics bias and obsession with “inequality”: "California’s curriculum materials, by contrast, sometimes read like a brief from a Bernie Sanders rally. 'The yawning gap between the haves and have-nots and what is to be done about it is one of the great questions of this time,' says the state’s 2016 social studies framework."
In another attempt at establishing California as America´s wonderland for undocumented immigrants, governor Gavin Newsom “promised that there will be state health coverage for all people over 65,” whether they are in the United States legally of not, a move that according to Univision News, will only cost the state´s taxpayers $121 million a year.
On Tuesday morning, Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends show gave attention to two examples of the kind of pro-gun stories that are generally underreported in the dominant media. In a case out of Bay Point, California, surveillance video recorded a Kam's Market store clerk defending himself by shooting one of two armed robbers, and, near Houston, a homeowner shot and killed three armed home invaders after they entered his home.
On Friday's Fox and Friends, and again on Fox and Friends Saturday, Fox News Channel gave coverage to a story ignored by the other networks as the show recalled for viewers that two illegal immigrants have been charged with murdering a El Dorado County, California, police officer, Brian Ishmael, who was shot to death on October 23 while responding to reports of a robbery.
Public schools are reopening for business across America, meaning it’s time to get back to reading, writing, arithmetic….and revolution. As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way. On the first day of classes at Denair Middle School near Modesto a science teacher handed out worksheets from a transgender advocacy group titled “The Gender Unicorn” asking students about their “gender identity,” “gender expression,” and their sexual and emotional attractions.
Hollywood financiers are investing in the local contender this presidential election season, donating far and away the most money to California Senator Kamala Harris’ campaign out of all the Democratic candidates. Harris has received a whopping 48% of all candidate donations from Hollywood since beginning her campaign, making it clear who movie industry players want to see in the White House in 2021.
Since the Memorial Day controversy in Fresno when the Grizzlies minor league baseball team showed a video depicting Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (shown speaking at the 2019 Women's Rights March in New York) as an "enemy of freedom," the Fresno Bee has published multiple stories on the controversy which conveniently skipped right over the socialist firebrand's ideas for eroding many of the feedoms that Americans have long enjoyed.
The man being interviewed said the president has crossed the line, that his movement is gun control and that we need people to vote in good conscience, not some crazy people who think their freedom is tied to owning an AR-15. He wasn't a politico appearing on Mess NBC. No, he's Steve Kerr, a would-be gun grabber and head coach of the NBA's defending champion Golden State Warriors. The man doing the interview was Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury-News, who had no intention of sticking to sports.
Many people in Hollywood think they know better than the rest of us when it comes to politics and who should occupy the White House. One of those individuals -- Robert De Niro -- has been profanely disparaging President Trump every time the actor gets near a microphone. That behavior was in full display on Sunday evening, when De Niro was supposed to announce recipients of lifelong accomplishment trophies at the American Icon Awards gala in Los Angeles. Of course, he saw that as an opportunity to slam the President by claiming that putting the GOP official in prison as the way to “Make America Great Again.”
California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has made liberals crestfallen by conceding to fiscal reality and scaling back the massively expensive and delayed high-speed rail project. But Monday’s New York Times didn’t quite frame it that way: “California Curtails a Rail Project, Undercutting Dreams of Building Big." The online headline: “Can America Still Build Big?" The text was slightly less starry-eyed about California’s ambitious, European-style high-speed rail project than Fuller’s previous embarrassing story two years ago.
While MSNBC has been out to lunch on the Christmas night murder of Newman Police Cpl. Ronil Singh allegedly by an illegal alien, the broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC have surprisingly given this story heavy coverage to the tune of over 28 minutes over the last three days. Fortunately, the Sacramento Bee reported that an arrest has been made in Singh’s death, citing law enforcement officials as having told them that a suspect “was arrested in Bakersfield either Thursday night or Friday morning.”
