California Teachers Slam Book Banning of Supposedly ‘Racist’ Classics

A group of teachers has rebelled against the decision by a Burbank California school district to ban a list of classic literary works tagged as “racist” by local thought police.

“Think cancel culture,” writes former Burbank teacher Brian Crosby in a collection of responses published in the Los Angeles Times on November 19. “The texts of these books teach anti-racism, decency and empathy” and these “literary treasures” ought to remain as teaching tools for educators.

As Breitbart News reported last week, middle and high school English teachers in the Burbank Unified School District have been forbidden from including on their curriculum Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, Theodore Taylor’s The Cay, and Mildred D. Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

“The Burbank Unified School District has taken an anti-education stance in halting the teaching of the classic books due to their perceived racism,” writes Mr. Crosby.

“I taught To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men for most of my 31-year career as a high school English teacher,” Crosby states. “These books were often the favorites of my students.” Read more…

Tucker Carlson Gives Update on Missing Hunter Biden Documents

A missing flash drive that was part of a package of documents meant to be shipped from Tucker Carlson’s New York team to LA, where he was conducting an interview with Tony Bobulinski, was found by UPS. The rest of the package’s contents are still missing.

Tucker Carlson’s team was set to lead investigation into documents obtained regarding Hunter Biden and his family’s business dealings, but when the team in New York sent them to Carlson in LA, they wound up missing in transit.

Carlson reported on their loss, and then the sudden reappearance of a sole flash drive. On Thursday night, he revealed what had been gleaned from the shipper, UPS, after hours of correspondence and phone calls. Which was absolutely nothing. UPS had no explanation as to how the flash drive became separated from the envelope in which it was sent, and the rest of the documents.

The shipper searched everywhere looking for the contents of the package on Tuesday, when they first realized it did not get to its destination, and found nothing. They have no idea what happened to the materials, despite an exhaustive search of planes, trucks, and sorting facilities. Read more…

Protesters Raid Shops, ATMs After Philadelphia Police Shooting

Angry protesters clashed with police and looted businesses in western Philadelphia Monday night after a 27-year-old Black man was shot to death in a confrontation with city officers earlier in the day.

Walter Wallace, who was allegedly holding a knife, was fatally shot while two police officers were responding to a complaint about a man with a weapon in Cobbs Creek, according to the Associated Press. He “advanced toward” the officers, who then fired “several times,” the outlet reported.

Wallace was hit in both the shoulder and chest, then taken in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died.

Following Wallace’s death, which was recorded and posted on social media, hundreds of people – some armed with bricks – protested in the 52nd Street commercial district, and the demonstration quickly turned violent. Police cars and dumpsters were set ablaze and NBC10 Philadelphia reported that at least 30 police officers were hurt.

A 56-year-old sergeant was struck by a truck and was hospitalized with a broken leg, among other injuries.

Stores including several Rite Aid pharmacies, a restaurant, and clothing and shoe shops were broken into. Two ATMs were also reported to have been smashed. Read more…

Guiliani: Only 5% of What’s on Hunter Biden’s Hard Drive Has Been Released so Far

Former New York City mayor, Trump campaign advisor and former U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani is warning Americans they haven’t seen anything yet when it comes to the corruption of the Biden family.

“I have the entire hard drive and the New York Post has only published about five percent of it,” Giuliani said. “The New York Post has at least two more situations even more serious than this. The real big time money corruption takes place with the Chinese Communist Party. In essence we have a man trying to be President of the United States whose family has been in business for a number of years with the Chinese communist government and high level Chinese communists.

If we’re stupid enough to do that. China was setting Joe up for years and they have his son by the you know what and they’ve given them plenty of money and coincidentally Joe has caved into China in ever negotiation he’s ever had and he’s the only man in the world who says China is not a threat to us or a competitor. I guess if your family got $30 or $40 million from China, if you were corrupt, I guess you’d say that.”

Earlier this month Guiliani hinted at information he has about Hunter and Joe Biden, some of which has since been published in the New York Post and censored by Twitter and Facebook. Read more…

Nearly 60k Mail-In Ballots in Pennsylvania County Go Missing

Voters in Westmoreland County are confused and frustrated as 58,000 mail-in ballots, supposed to have been mailed out earlier this week, still haven’t been delivered.

“The first batch of processed and approved applications was submitted to the County’s mail house, Mid-West Direct on October 3rd. It has been brought to our attention today that Mid-West did not sent out the ballots on Tuesday as indicated.”

Channel 11 contacted both the Attorney General’s office and the Secretary of the Commonwealth once Channel 11 viewers raised concerns over their ballots.

A short time later, we received the news release with this quote: “The County has been assured that the ballots will be sent out starting tomorrow morning. Once Mid-West is able to catch up on the backlog over the weekend, the County expects the process to run smoothly.” Read more…

Man Accused in Michigan Governor Kidnapping Plot Called Trump a “Tyrant”

One of the militiamen accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer railed that President Trump was a “tyrant” and called all government workers “your enemy.”

Video circulating on social media appears to show Brandon Caserta expressing his anti-government – and anti-Trump – views.

“Trump is not your friend, dude,” Caserta says, with an anarchist flag hanging behind him. “It amazes me that people actually, like, believe that when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant. Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude.”

He also ranted about “getting robbed by government thugs for some made-up traffic violation” after receiving a traffic ticket.

Caserta’s alleged views surface amid Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Whitmer both blaming Trump for inspiring the sick scheme, as they claim he failed to denounce white supremacy and extremism in the US.

Caserta was among 13 men busted by the feds Thursday who planned to kidnap Whitmer and storm the Capitol building in Michigan in hopes of sparking a civil war. Seven of the defendants were linked to a militia group called the Wolverine Watchmen. Read more…

Biden Booster Jane Fonda: ‘COVID is God’s Gift to the Left’

Jane Fonda made a name for herself manning an anti-aircraft gun in a photo-op with the communist North Vietnamese barbarians who beat and tortured our prisoners of war. Otherwise, she would have lived in relative obscurity. Her father was a beloved actor of the ’40s and ’50s, but she was a no-talent actress who appeared in some of the biggest clunkers and flops in Hollywood during the 1960s and ’70s.

She was an activist. She was woke before being woke was cool.

Today, she’s even more radical than she was in the 1960s. This is perfectly normal on the left as the radical bar keeps rising every year and members have to adjust their worldview to encompass crazier and crazier ideas.

Fonda, like many on the left, sees opportunity in the present crisis and will not let it go to waste. And if it gets rid of a political opponent, all the better.

Washington Free Beacon:

“I just think that COVID is God’s gift to the Left,” Fonda said. “That’s a terrible thing to say. I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the band-aid off who [Trump] is and what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country.”

Because you couldn’t defeat him by arguing your point of view. The radical left needs help from God to make Trump unpopular enough to lose the election. Read more…

Joe Biden Vows to ‘Pass Legislation Making Roe the Law of the Land’

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said, if elected, he will make “the only responsible response” to confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, which, he said, is to ensure legislation passes that makes Roe v. Wade “the law of the land.”

On Monday evening, during an NBC town hall in Miami, Florida, Biden responded to a question by Cassidy Brown, who works in sports marketing, that expressed her concern about her inability to obtain birth control and an abortion should Amy Coney Barrett be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

“Number one, we don’t know exactly what she will do, although the expectation is that she may very well move to over … overview … overrule Roe,” Biden answered. “The only responsible response to that would be to pass legislation making Roe the law of the land. That’s what I would do.”

In posing her question to Biden, Brown used the language of the abortion industry. She never mentioned the word “abortion,” but employed, instead, the euphemism “reproductive health care”:

I knew whenever I was graduating high school and entering college that I wanted to obtain my degree and start a career before starting a family. Having access to birth control and safe reproductive health care was imperative in making that true for me. So, considering the new Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, what are your particular plans to protect women’s reproductive rights in the U.S.? Read more…

Antifa Assaults Woman Waving American Flag

A woman waving a large, American flag at a conservative protest in Portland, Ore. on Sunday was attacked by Antifa militants who tried to steal her flag, then pulled her to the ground by her hair. The woman would not let go of the flag, and when Antifa couldn’t get it away from her, they assaulted her.

The conservative woman, who appears to be a woman of colour, was steadfast in her determination to retain her American flag and would not allow Antifa militants to take it from her.

Andy Ngo, editor-at-large for The Post Millennial, reported the violent encounter. The video shows a woman standing with a group of other conservative protestors, holding a flag.

A man walked up to her and grabs her flag, but she wouldn’t release her grip and he dragged her a few feet away, where more of his affiliated counter-protestors were. A second man joined in and snagged the flag.

One of them grabs her hair and drags her to the ground as she cries out. Those she was with rush in to free her, and she gets away. A man offscreen could be heard to say: “Are you serious right now?!” Read more…
