WASHINGTON - White House hopeful Elizabeth Warren said on Monday that if elected she would roughly quadruple federal funding for public schools and incentivize states to adopt funding approaches that more equitably fund lower-income schools. Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts who is now a front-runner for the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination along with former Vice President Joe Biden, wrote in a post on the website Medium that her plan would result in the federal government investing an additional $450 billion in elementary and secondary schools over the next decade. "Our current approach to school funding at the federal, state

Yes, let’s keep those black kids in their failing schools. I believe we’ve quadrupled public school funding several times before, with basically no positive results.

The government should not have the power to do any of these things. Our government is out of control, seemingly empowered to do anything with our lives and property. We have generations of dependents, who have replaced their momma's with the government, for lifelong dependency, and democracy will leave us all subject to government hegemony. I do not want Warren in charge of my life.

Lizard Warren: Everybody must receive the same government controlled 'education'. That is not education. It is brainwashing. The goal is to dumb down our children, make them lazy, and make them compliant.

Warren’s wealth tax fantasy is an unconstitutional confiscation of other people’s money. Not going to happen, and even if it did, the wealthy will whisk their money out of the US instantly. They will be ready. Without that the burden of her Leftist give away programs will fall squarely on the taxpayers - the shmucks that she claims to ‘care about’. Please.

"Federal money for schools" is nothing more than a front for embezzlement and fraud. Didn't former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh resign amid a scandal over a major purchase of children's books she authored by the University of Maryland Medical System and other groups? Wherever Democrats govern, fraud and corruption run rampant.

Constitutionally, education is left to the states. Total spending on education is close to 600 billion. So, dors Warren plan to make total spending 2.4 trillion or just boost the federal outlay to 80 billion? Our annual budget is bumping 4 trillion. So how do they propose medical care for all college loan forgiveness. Free college, 90 trillion for the green new deal, welfare for illegals and a guaranteed wage? Answer...... none of this will happen. This is about empty promises to get votes.

TALLADEGA, Ala. — Donald Trump is beloved in Alabama: It’s the state that hosted his first major political rally as a presidential candidate, then voted for him by a nearly 30-point margin. But the state’s freshman Democratic senator, Doug Jones, couldn’t seem to care less. Easily the most vulnerable Senate incumbent on the ballot next year, Jones is talking and voting as if he’s totally unburdened by the fact he represents one of the most conservative states in the nation.

Dick's Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack assembled a focus group this week to explore the possibility of a third-party presidential bid in 2020, Politico reports. Why it matters: Under Stack, Dick's instituted tougher gun sales restrictions and destroyed $5 million worth of assault weapons rather than send them back to manufacturers. The post-Parkland moves were divisive in today's polarized climate and ultimately made a dent in the company's bottom line — which could lead to questions about Stack's motives to implement them as he tests the 2020 bid.

About 25,000 members of the Chicago Teachers Union rallied Wednesday as Mayor Lori Lightfoot delivered her address on the city's budget.

OTTAWA - A Quebec separatist party that softened its demands for independence reaped the reward on Monday, mounting a remarkable comeback in Canada’s election that helped deprive Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of a majority. The Bloc Quebecois, revitalized under new leader Yves-Francois Blanchet, jumped to 32 seats from 10 seats in the predominantly French-speaking province, according to provisional results. Quebec accounts for 78 seats in the House of Commons, second only to Ontario. “We have come far but we will go further,” Blanchet told jubilant supporters in the early hours of Tuesday.

For years, Pierre Delecto’s presence on Twitter largely went unnoticed. Operating a bare-bones account with the handle, “@qaws9876,” the user’s limited activity only revealed an interest in politics — namely supporting Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah). So when “Pierre Delecto” started trending Sunday on the social media platform, people were understandably confused. “Why are we talking about Pierre Delecto,” one person asked. “WTH is a Pierre Delecto & why is everyone going crazy about it?” another wanted to know. On Sunday, Twitter users lost their collective minds when they learned that “Pierre Delecto” wasn’t a bot or a random Romney superfan,

Princeton Theological Seminary pledged last week to use $27.6 million of its endowment to pay reparations for the school’s historic ties to slavery, believed to be the largest amount ever paid by a school to atone for benefiting from the slave trade. The school’s black student association says it’s “a great start, but not enough.” The Association of Black Seminarians at Princeton Theological Seminary—a student group that helped raise the slavery reparations issue at the school—plans to call for at least $120 million more in slavery reparations along with money for current African-American students and other changes, the association’s president said.

President Trump is weighing whether to replace acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney with White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. Trump has asked advisers for their thoughts on Conway as his top White House aide. Conway would likely face pushback from Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who also works in the White House. Conway and Kushner are not friendly, two people familiar with the matter said. Conway has been in the middle of Trump’s barbs with her husband, George, a conservative lawyer who frequently makes headlines for his criticism of the president. George Conway said earlier this month that White House aides should resign unless they can “have some moderating or blunting effect”

In the program for an exhibition of his works at a museum in Stockholm in 1968, pop artist Andy Warhol famously predicted “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” The phrase “15 minutes of fame” has since come to describe anyone or anything that’s a short-lived blip on the pop culture or media radar. Fast-forward 50 years, and that “future” is now. The latest manifestation of Warhol’s prediction is one Robert F. “Beto” O’Rourke. The former Texas Democratic congressman’s 15 minutes of fame were up last November after he lost a U.S. Senate race to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, but apparently, no one thought to tell him.
