Dailywire Article – In Schools, CRT Is The Coverup. The Crime Is Failing Academics.

Posted by M. C. on January 11, 2023

By  Luke Rosiak

The news that principals at several high schools in Fairfax County, Virginia, withheld valuable academic awards from top-performing students — around the time the school system hired a consultant that promised “equal outcomes for every student, without exception” — has shocked the nation. How could schools have gone from encouraging academic standouts to seemingly trying to squash them? And what are the consequences for our best and brightest and our nation?

This latest scandal effectively dispenses with a misconception that has confused the debate over politicized schools for three years: The most important way you’ll see Critical Race Theory (CRT) manifest in your school system isn’t through discussions of race at all. It’s through lowered academic standards and the rejection of the idea that excellence even exists.

Leftist activists present CRT — or as its proponents in K-12 call it, “equity” — as being about teaching about slavery (as if every American school doesn’t already do that). But I spent two years researching a book on these activists’ takeover of American schools, and it quickly became clear that the real, underlying story was much more important, if less politically flashy: schools’ abject failure to actually help kids learn, and the dishonest tactics they’ll use to keep you from realizing it.

One of the more striking charts I saw was from 2015. On one axis it showed the horrific state of academic accomplishment in New York City schools: In most schools, the majority of students failed the state math exam, known as the Regents. The other axis was based on the letter grades that students got in math class. Here the story looked much different: Almost everyone got passing grades — even when they failed the standardized exam covering the same material.

There was essentially no correlation between getting a passing letter grade and passing the objective test. At the Science School for Exploration and Discovery in the Bronx, 94% passed their math classes in 2017-18, but only 2% passed their math exams.

In other words, letter grades were meaningless. Worse, they were arguably fraud.

What’s The Opposite of Freedom of Speech and Worse than Censorship?? – It’s The Coverup! – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on November 14, 2022

If this article looks familiar, well, there’s a good reason. Stick with me here – – –

What’s the opposite of freedom of speech and worse than censorship??

I won’t keep you hanging, it’s ForcedSpeak.

ForcedSpeak is when a so-called “Authority — nearly always a government entity — tries to force you to make a disclaimer or other statement against your will.

Sort of Orwell’s NewSpeak but, rather than the bureaucrats and their MSM newsy mouth-pieces — modern translation: “presstitutes” — YOU have to do it.

Sounds like a knock-off from an old anti-NAZI or anti-communist Korean-War-era Hollywood propaganda flick doesn’t it? Maybe The Manchurian Candidate.

But it’s not Manchuria, Germany, Russia, Korea – – – or fiction. It’s Canada.

It’s Pastor Artur Pawlowski who grew up behind the Iron Curtain. He designated his church in Canada as sanctuary from the seriously destructive COVID narrative and it’s negative and often murderous results.

So, in the true spirit of current Cancel Culture tradition – – – you know, using the Big-Tech/government complex, when you can’t answer someone with facts and logic, you shadow-ban, censor or otherwise disappear and thus “Cancel” them – – – Canadian Authorities arrested Pastor Pawlowski and closed his church.

But that was just the beginning. I think it’s better if Rev. Pawlowski briefly explains a few things, including ForcedSpeak, himself – – – except as you can see, YouTube cancelled him too – – –

So, YouTube claims, “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.” That happened after the clip appeared in the previous version of this article and got significant attention.

I’ve posted the exact same video clip on alternative video hosting site Rumble so you can decide for yourself whether YouTube should have “cancelled” it – – –

So, do you find this clip objectionable? Should YouTube “protect” you — or anyone — from seeing it? Or is the Big-Tech/government complex using this tactic to coverup previous censorship? This would by no means be the first time YouTube has been complicit in this way.

So not only does the Big-Tech/Government complex censor the truth these days, they coverup the proof they’re censoring the truth.

Pretty clearly, covering up evidence is fast becoming Big-Tech/government S.O.P. (Standard Operating Procedure).

I will no longer patronize YouTube. If you think the above evidence of dishonesty and arrogant, highhanded censorship on the part of YouTube warrants it — and if you don’t want to be subject to it yourself — well, maybe you’ll join me? Alternatives are available.

And BTW, how long till ForcedSpeak shows up here?

You can find the article as originally published on October 23, 2021, censorship and all, here — if they haven’t reinstated the clip because of viewer heat or removed the evidence entirely – – –

What’s Behind the Seth Rich Coverup?

Posted by M. C. on October 31, 2022

You forgot, didn’t you!

By Clarice Feldman

The Epoch Times reports on the continuing efforts by the FBI to hide the contents of Seth Rich’s computer, and while I am not sure why, the reasonable assumption is that to disclose this material would, as a number of experts have long contended, prove that Mueller’s claim that the DNC computer was hacked by Russians was of a piece with the entire nonsensical and disproven claims that Russia conspired to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Since it has been several years since focus was on the murder of Seth Rich and the publication by Julian Assange of the efforts inside the DNC to see that Hillary was the party’s presidential candidate, a summary look at the details is warranted.

Seth Rich was a DNC staffer who was mysteriously murdered on July 10, 2016, in Washington, D.C. after having been shot twice in the back. None of the valuable items in his possession seem to have been stolen. That would seem to rule out robbery. He had no known enemies and the murder occurred early in the morning (4:20 a.m.) in a safe neighborhood of the city. No one was ever arrested or prosecuted for the crime. There were no known witnesses to the murder. Nor to my knowledge were any suspects ever named. Local law enforcement nevertheless suggested his murder was part of a botched robbery. Six days after the murder, Wikileaks published over 19,000 emails and 8,000 attachments from the DNC files. In November of that year, they published over 8,000 more emails from the files. The emails showed that party officials favored Clinton over rival Bernie Sanders.

Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, long embroiled in a lengthy effort to avoid extradition to the U.S. from the U.K., has refused steadfastly to name the source of this material but has hinted on Dutch television that it was Seth Rich. He has repeatedly said the Russian government was not the source.

Persons familiar with such things have examined the rate of data transmission, inter alia, and concluded the DNC system was not hacked by outsiders. Instead, they contend that the files were copied to a storage device like a thumb drive and transmitted to Assange’s Wikileaks.

The usual MSM and lefty internet sites dismissed these claims as “fake news” and the claimants as “conspiracy theorists.” Robert Mueller seems to have played along with them by indicting a number of Russian intelligence agents for hacking these files. If this were intended to cover up the truth it would be a convenient way to do it, for it is extremely unlikely any of these agents would appear here to contest the allegations in the indictment. (This was not the first time the Russian Collusion fairytale was fanned by a Mueller stunt like this. Mueller indicted a number of Russian firms and individuals for attempting to influence the 2016 election. Only one showed up to contest the charges, Concord Management and Consulting, and the Department of Justice dropped the charges against it.)

After Rich’s murder, on March 15, 2018, a source provided to the FBI information and material extracted from the computer. The FBI originally claimed it never had possession of Rich’s laptop nor any information from it. Years later (in 2020) after receipt of this material, however, the agency backtracked and admitted it had thousands of files from Rich’s computer. Brian Huddleston sued under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain disclosure of those documents.
