District officials in Duluth, Minnesota, schools have removed "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" from the required reading list because of racial slurs in the books, CBS Minnesota reports. Michael Cary, the district´s director of curriculum and instruction, told The Duluth News Tribune the books will still be optional reading and available in the school libraries, but they´ll be replaced next year by other books that touch the same topics without language that makes students uncomfortable. "We felt that we could still teach the same standards and expectations through other novels that didn´t require

The strength and value of Mark Twain´s book is that he, through Huck Finn, humanized Jim (and all black people,) on that rafting trip.
How idiotic is it to hide children from the truth? Idiotic and insane.
The ´terrible´ word describing Jim, by the way, pops up in just about any rap video.
And it dehumanizes blacks. Yet that rap crap is ubiquitous.
To Kill A Mockingbird, in my opinion, does not rise to the level of Huck Finn.
Although the movie was excellent.
But I would not ban the book. To a discerning reader, the comparison of the two books is part of intellectual development.

This latest outrage is an American tragedy.
We stood by and watched the liberal socialist indoctrination of our children.
We stood by and watched the sexualization of small children.
We stood by and watched traditional marriage and sexual roles vanish.
We stood by and watched as God was removed from the public square.
We stood by and watched as lying became as common as breathing.
We stood by and watched our national monuments and our flag being desecrated,disrespected, and even thrown in the trash.
And now we have two magnificent pieces of literature, undoubtedly just the beginning of a purge of alleged racism, being removed. The removal of America’s entire history is only one rung of the ladder away.
That ladder down leads to oblivion. I weep for America.

The answer is to just change the spelling of the ´bad´ words. A good example would be the bag of bird seed I bought recently for my finch feeder. Over the years, I´ve fed them Niger Seeds. This fall I noticed the bag is now labeled "Nijer Seeds". I feel better now, don´t you?

What´s next to be banned, then: let me see- What about the History of the American Revolution because it calls the British "red Coats". Next, of course will be the history of how the West was settled because it slurs Native Americans (calls them the slanderous slur, "Indians"). And of course, the entire history of WWI will have to be purged, too- can´t call German´s "Square Heads" or WWII Germans, "Krauts".

Would they allow Mark Twain´s (Samuel Clemens) wonderful book, "Life on the Mississippi"? It barely touches on the questions of color, but has the word, "Plantation" in it. What about Leon Uris´ extraordinarily emotional historical novels, "Mila 18" and "Exodus"? Because it so derogatorily details behavior of Nazis and Arabs? And do not forget the many official historical volumes of Sam Morrison on the U.S. Navy history in WWII- it is loaded with contemporary racial terms describing black mess "boys" and "Filipino" servants on board U.S. Naval ships in that era.

See, that´s the trouble with banning history based on current and passing self righteousness. “To Kill A Mockingbird” and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" make people uncomfortable because that is exactly what they are supposed to do! But these over educated idiots do not understand that at all,. Thus they are the very progenitors of perpetuating such racial serotypes. And that is likely what they are trying to do, isn’t it?

If you erase exactly what happened in history, how can you learn how much we have progressed in the ensuing years??

Not knowing history allows BLM to declare that we are still just as racist as plantation/slave owners ever were.

Part of this enormous educational failure is the that the nature and purpose of literature has been forgotten ... or do I mean discarded? Authors write depictions of the world as it is/was -- they´re not necessarily projecting their own biases onto the conduct, dialogue or circumstances of the characters they create. They are painting a picture, not posting a handbill.

Literature has played an essential role in portraying the human condition, and through that we come to understand human nature more completely. By doing so, we also come to recognize not just the foibles of human nature, but the potential in human relationships and endeavor.

This kind of stupidity has been infecting the arts for a long time -- no one can presume to imagine anything anymore. Human frailty is now a punishable crime.

Jared Kushner scores first major
bipartisan deal for Trump in Congress
Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Bedard    Original Article

An effort led by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner to both increase prison security and provide a pathway out for some 4,000 well-behaved prisoners has scored a major, and lopsided, victory, the first major bipartisan deal for the Trump White House. The House Judiciary Committee voted 25-5 to back the “First Step Act,” a shocking turn after the media had earlier written off chances that it would pass. “We see it as a big win,” said an administration official involved in the talks between House Republicans and Democrats. Shut the revolving door on crime? Republicans and Democrats work together? Sound impossible?

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become,"

A jubilant President Trump tweeted on Thursday to announce that five of the ´Most Wanted leaders of ISIS´ have been captured after they were lured from Syria to Iraq with fake Telegram messages. Iraqi officials used the cell phone of already captured ISIS lieutenant Ismail al-Eithawi to send instructions via the app for the four other leaders to come to Iraq, where they were seized. The encrypted app was officially named by ISIS as one of its favored mobile messaging services in 2015 and has been regularly used by the terror group for private communication and to spread propaganda.

Iran strikes prove Trump’s

President Trump’s decision to scrap the Iran nuke deal had a lot to do with Tehran’s decision to fire missiles at Israel late Wednesday. First, the Iranians likely timed the attack to make it seem that the president had instantly made things worse in the region. That also explains why Iran’s Houthi proxies in Yemen shot missiles into Saudi Arabia hours after Trump’s nuke-deal news. Second, Iran’s power in Syria and Yemen is itself in good part the result of Team Obama’s policies, including the nuke deal — which left Washington with few ways to respond to Tehran’s non­nuclear outrages while freeing up billions in cash to fund Iranian

Jerusalem - The Israeli military on Thursday said it attacked “dozens” of Iranian targets in neighboring Syria in response to an Iranian rocket barrage on Israeli positions in the Golan Heights, in the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date. Israel said the targets included weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. It also said it destroyed several Syrian air-defense systems after coming under heavy fire. It said none of its warplanes was hit. The blistering Israeli assault was by far the most intensive Israeli action in neighboring Syria since the civil war

Two unnamed sources told The Hill that Sadler took issue with McCain´s criticism of President Donald Trump´s CIA nominee, Gina Haspel, allegedly dismissing the ailing McCain, saying "he´s dying anyway." McCain on Wednesday said that Haspel is unfit to run the CIA because she would not say definitively that torture is immoral.

WASHINGTON – President George W.

The price of greatness is responsibilities.

Her scarf was tied high around her neck and covered the top of her navy blue jacket.

For eight years, the sane-minded of America suffered under a socialist-minded Barack Obama who scoffed law, mocked the Constitution and destroyed all that mattered on pretty near all matters tied to virtue, tradition, humble service and competent leadership. Now Donald Trump has come and with just over a year of leadership, has steadily and surely begun to repair what Obama broke. He’s dismantling the previous administration’s dismantling, so to speak. Veni, vidi, vici. He’s come, he’s seen and he’s definitely, most definitely in the very throes of conquering.
