Wisconsin School Under Fire For Assigning Outlandish Anti-Republican Test

Students at Shattuck Middle School reportedly received an assignment recently that has some parents up in arms. According to EAG News, students at the Neenah, Wis., school were given a worksheet depicting two laborers, one of whom is laying bricks along a pathway while the other is removing them. Scroll down for video.

The former man was shown with the Democrat Party’s jackass symbol on his shirt, while the latter’s clothes bore an elephant associated with the GOP.

The eighth grade class was then instructed to analyze the photos and answer a series of questions about their behavior, culminating with the query: “What might this mean to us about immigration and citizenship?”

As it turns out, the two men reportedly signify the Democrat’s effort to build a so-called pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants contrasted by the position of many Republicans that America’s immigration laws should be enforced.

One parent, Scott Radies, was taken aback by the assignment, explaining he initially checked the back of the sheet “to see if the opposite view” was expressed. It wasn’t.

He then perused his son’s answers – for which he was given a perfect grade.

“When I saw his answers to the questions,” Radies explained, “and realized that the teacher gave him five out of five so apparently those answers that he gave were the ones she was looking for because he got them all right.”

Some of the answers he wrote to earn the grade included his analysis that “the Democrat is building [and] the Republican is destroying” and “that the Democrats want immigrants to come in and Republicans don’t.”

CNN’s ‘Butch Lesbian’ Sally Kohn Publicly Hopes Her Daughter Becomes Gay

According to a Washington Post editorial she wrote recently, CNN contributor Sally Kohn — who refers to herself as a “butch lesbian” — explained that exposing her homosexuality to her 6-year-old daughter is not enough.

“I’m gay,” she asserted, “and I want my kid to be gay, too.”

She went on to explain her predilection by comparing her sexual proclivity to any trait a parent might want to pass down to their offspring.

“More often than not,” she wrote, “we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat.”

As it stands, however, Kohn lamented the fact that the girl she is raising with her partner, Sarah Hansen, is not exhibiting same-sex attraction.

“Time will tell,” she explained, “it doesn’t look like my 6-year-old daughter is gay. In fact, she’s boy crazy. It seems early to me, but I’m trying to be supportive.”

She acknowledged that another parent at her daughter’s school pointed out an unpleasant truth in relation to the girl’s infatuation with a particular boy.

“Bet it wouldn’t bother you so much if her crush was on a girl,” Kohn quoted the other parent — an allegation she couldn’t deny.

“She was right,” Kohn admitted, adding that she is a “slightly overbearing pro-gay mom.”

Even during playtime, she said, her bias comes through.

“When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad,” she wrote, “we gently remind her that they could be a dad and a dad. Sometimes she changes her narrative. Sometimes she doesn’t. It’s her choice.”

Do you think Sally Kohn should be pressuring her daughter to become gay? Sound off in the comments section below.

Trey Gowdy Reacts To Judge’s Anti-Amnesty Ruling

Twitter/Norwood Tea Party

As Western Journalism reported Tuesday, a Texas federal judge issued a temporary block on certain aspects of Barack Obama’s executive action regarding illegal immigration. With millions of illegals set to enjoy de facto amnesty beginning this week, Judge Andrew Hanen’s ruling came just days before the controversial order went into effect.

Hanen determined that a porous border and lax security “has exacerbated illegal immigration into this country,” a phenomenon that increasingly taxes resources among the states forced to receive these uninvited residents.

The judge responded to protests by more than half of all U.S. states in ruling that Obama’s order should face further review before being implemented.

“It is preferable to have the legality of these actions determined before the fates of over four million individuals are decided,” Hanen wrote. “An injunction is the only way to accomplish that goal.”

The decision led the Obama administration to delay issuing preferred status to the millions who would benefit from the executive order. South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, a frequent Obama critic and chairman of the House Immigration Subcommittee, shared his thoughts on Hanen’s ruling.

He called the decision a “victory for the rule of law,” explaining that Obama’s unilateral order deserved the scrutiny it received.

“The President’s extra-constitutional actions were rooted in political expediency and were devoid of a serious legal underpinning,” Gowdy stated. “This is not and never was about immigration law – as evidenced by the President’s consistent admission that he lacked the legal authority to do precisely what he did.”

While he acknowledged the legitimacy of prosecutorial discretion, Gowdy concluded that it is not “a synonym for anarchy wherein the executive branch can pick and choose portions of laws to enforce and ignore.”

Americans Renouncing Their Citizenship In Record Numbers Over Past Two Years

According to a recent U.S. Department of Treasury report, the number of individuals who willingly renounced their status as American citizens or residents in the last two years eclipsed the results from previous years. The Hill provided a timeline indicating how many gave up their status each year since 1998. That year, less than 400 individuals renounced the citizenship or long-term residency.

Throughout the remainder of Clinton’s presidency and George W. Bush’s two terms, the highest number of renunciations came in 2005 with 762. The lowest number came three years later when just 231 Americans gave up their citizenship.

Upon Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009, however, the numbers began to climb significantly. Nearly 1,800 U.S. citizens opted to take the serious step in 2011, with just over half that number renouncing their status the following year.

In 2013, however, came a dramatic spike with almost 3,000 individuals giving up their citizenship. Last year, another increase put the total number at 3,415 – more than four times the number of the highest year during Bush’s presidency.

The Treasury Department offers no specifics regarding why these citizens decided to voluntarily stop being Americans, though there was plenty of speculation in the comments section of The Hill’s report.

“I don’t blame them,” one respondent wrote, “the country is collapsing, and all democrats [sic] want is more of YOUR MONEY.”

Another reader admitted to considering joining those who have renounced their citizenship, writing that “Obama divided and abused his power to the point where everyone hates each other.”

According to one pithy commenter, the documented rise is “one of the many predictable outcomes of Hope & Change.”

What do you think is the cause of this spike in renounced citizenship? Let us know in the comments section below!

Boehner Calls Out Senate Democrats For Their Refusal To Act

In a recent reaction to the House of Representative’s move to fund the Department of Homeland Security while halting Barack Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration, House Speaker John Boehner was quick to tout the effort. He also noted, however, that the House cannot pass the funding bill on its own.

“We won the fight to fund the DHS and stop the president’s unconstitutional actions,” he said. “Now it’s time for the Senate to do their work.”

Boehner specifically called out Senate Democrats who have repeatedly worked to prevent the legislation’s passage.

“In the gift shop out here,” he said, “they’ve got these little booklets on how a bill becomes a law. Why don’t you go as the Senate Democrats when they’re going to get off their a—and do something other than vote no?”

The Senate’s top Democrat, Harry Reid, responded to Boehner’s accusation through a spokesperson, criticizing the use of profanity in his statement.

“We know Speaker Boehner is frustrated,” Adam Jentleson said, “but cursing is not going to resolve the squabbling among Republicans that led to this impasse.”

Though many Americans responded positively to Boehner’s direct admonition, others described the statement as the rhetorical flourishes of an ineffective speaker.

“A do-nothing obstructionist Republican telling someone else to ‘get off their a$s?’” one reader wrote in response to a Washington Times report. “That’s an absolute riot! Proving once again that rank hypocrisy is no deterrent to those lacking a moral compass.”

Some critics also shared the opinion that Boehner should not celebrate funding the DHS at all.
