Former first lady Michelle Obama will soon have a second California school as her namesake. In a unanimous vote, the West Contra Costa Unified School District Board decided to change the name of Wilson Elementary School to Michelle Obama Elementary School. The idea was first proposed when the PTA sent a letter to the school board, the school board said. Two ad hoc meetings received unanimous support from parents, students and community leaders. "We wanted to choose someone on a global level," Wilson PTA President Maisha Cole said. "With a new school and new learning environment, we want our children to think beyond Richmond, to think beyond California,

Mooch Obama will get an elementary school named after her. I s that like naming a street Martin Luther King Blvd? In other words avoid at all costs especially after sunset. Also, will they be forced to eat lunches with vegetables from her Whole Foods photo-op garden?

Methinks this name may increase the chance that this institution will become just another "failing government school". Trump is so brilliant. He will soon force Democrats to defend such schools. Actually, Democrats spend almost all of their days defending one or another source of failure at a personal and institutional level. Let's hope the school has a pretty receptacles over the urinals in the boys' toilets to store the government funded menstrual supplies.

Richmond, CA, according to Wikipedia: The racial makeup of the city was 36.06% black or African American, 21.36% white, 0.64% Native American, 12.29% Asian, 0.50% Pacific Islander, 13.86% from other races, and 5.27% from two or more races. 26.53% of the population were Hispanic or Latino, of any race. In another citation, as of 2014 Richmond was the 11th most dangerous city in California. Yeah, they really need to think globally.

This is in a fairly wretched area. Not a place where you want to get, say a flat tire, or travel through after dark. It is economically depressed. What's most shocking is how Richmond (or at least Point Richmond) is across the San Francisco Bay from some of the priciest real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area. Same bay, similar water views. But so sketchy that it is one of the few places in SF Bay Area where housing is depressed (and affordable). The truth is that people like the Obamas have totally failed the residents of areas like Richmond that exist all over America.

New findings strongly suggest that, thanks in part to left-wing Judge Amy Berman Jackson, convicted former Trump campaign official and longtime political consultant Roger Stone’s guilt wasn’t determined last year by an unbiased jury but rather by one stocked with partisan left-wing operatives. Among the alleged operatives was former Tennessee Democrat congressional candidate Tomeka Hart, a far-left activist who’d been posting negative stories about President Donald Trump and his alleged (and since-debunked) Russian collusion crimes to social media long before she was selected to serve on Stone’s jury last November.

When Donald Trump won his historic upset victory in 2016, media outlets briefly turned to the "forgotten" men and women of rural America and those in once-great American cities now crumbling. The "Great Revolt," as Salena Zito explains it, describes a political realignment aimed at revitalizing broken communities. Yet according to a groundbreaking new film, the true answer to urban decay, broken families, and ballooning debt from dependence on social programs isn't more government but a return to the traditional sources of meaning: faith, family, work, and community. Filmmaker Christopher Rufo traveled to three crumbling American cities — Youngstown, Ohio; Memphis, Tenn.; and Stockton, Calif. —
