Improving Academic Achievement - A National Crisis

Half the kids in the United States including where we live in Reno, Nevada cannot read or do math at grade level.  This is a national crisis as bad as any hurricane natural disaster.  Since 90% of kids attend public schools, the problem is primarily in our public schools.   Nobody in the education establishment seems to care.  And, it is not about money going public schools, since we spend more on public schools than any other country in the world only to achieve mediocre academic results.  

It is time to end business as usual if we are going to improve academic achievement.  First, school board members must recognize they are are elected to represent the interests of students, parents and taxpayers exclusively.  School district staff member interests are all represented by various unions because they are Labor.  School Boards therefore must understand that they are Management because most school administrators are part of the education establishment.  They are not managers in a real sense.  Instead they are paper pushers who will never rock the boat.  We need to rock the boat to improve academic achievement.  

Next, most public schools only have kids in school for 180 days a year conforming to the time when the United States was an agricultural economy and kids were needed at home to work on the farm during the summer months.  So kids in the US attend school for about 9 months and not even that when all holidays are factored in to the school year.  We need to get that up to 10 months or at least 200 days a year like happens in many other countries where kids are far ahead of kids in the US. 

Teachers and Administrators must be held accountable for achieving academic results.  That means management by metrics and performance objectives.  There should be bonus pay for exceeding objectives and merit pay for teachers who actually do the best job.  Those teachers and administrators who consistently fail to achieve results must be invited to leave the school district as would be the case in business when an employee fails to do the job.  They must be FIRED.

We need rigorous pre and post testing every year to use as the basis for improvement.  As occurs in other countries, by the end of the 8th grade testing should be used to determine if a kid is college bound or should be in a vocational track with apprentice programs to learn a trade.   We always have community colleges for kids that are late bloomers if it turns out the college is possible; but no kid should leave school without a trade if college is not possible.  

We must look at curriculum to focus on the things that really matter rather than political indoctrination, which is happening in many school districts across the country.  Especially now and probably because of their failures,  left wing woke School Boards, Administrators and Teachers think their job is to create little Socialist activists.  As a result, they are wasting time teaching Fake History and pushing Socialist ideology.  This has to stop because it does nothing to improve academic achievement.  They are hurting the very students they purport to want to educate.  

We have to reinvent our public schools to improve academic achievement.  It will mean battles with teacher and administrator unions to get the job done.  We probably must have School Choice to create competitive pressures to get public schools to improve.  Many in the education establishment will have to be FIRED when the dust settles because they are actually hurting kids.  What is happening now is malpractice.  School Boards cannot allow this to continue.  Business as usual is failing the kids of our nation.  It is time for action if we are going to compete with other nations.  

Biden's Border Crisis

There are thousands of illegal aliens from all over the world crossing our border into the United States.  The Border Patrol is overwhelmed.  QueMala Harris was supposed to be in charge of the border crisis.  She is nowhere to be found.  Governor Greg Abbott of the State of Texas was ready to send in the National Guard; but the Biden Administration stopped it from happening.  Now Homeland Security run by a big mouth clown, Secretary Mayorkas is headed to the border to see what is happening.  Really!  Just turn on the TV and see the thousands of illegal aliens in Del Rio invading our country.  

It is time to send in the army.  We face an invasion at our Southern Border.  Biden as the incompetent Commander In Chief is supposed to protect and preserve our country.  Certainly, between his naps somebody in the Biden Administration can tell him what to do to stop this invasion.  Even former Obama and Clinton Administration officials are sounding the alarm bells.  You know it is bad with Fake News Chuck Todd calls out Biden for his incompetence. 

Our border is open.  The court has ordered Biden to implement Trump's stay in Mexico policy; but it is not happening because they don't have the man power in place to make it happen.  They are putting Haitians on airplanes to ship them back to their country to prevent all of Haiti from attempting to come into the United States.  

All of this is Joe Biden's fault.  Biden opened the flood gates by promising all these illegal aliens citizenship.  The National Socialists are attempting to flood swing states with illegal aliens to eventually gain votes for their party.  What is happening is a disaster.  We must send in the army to stop the invasion at our border.  There is no other choice other than completing the Wall, which should all happen immediately.

Another Bad Week For Joe Biden

While Joe Biden vacationed at his beach house in Delaware oblivious to world events, his administration had another very bad week.  Let's start with the invasion at our border where there are thousands of illegal aliens from all over the world attempting to enter our country.  Clearly, our border is completely out of control.  Homeland Security is attempting to fly these invaders back to the their home countries because we have no place to put them.  A court ordered Biden to implement Trump's remain in Mexico policy; but since things are so out of control that is not happening.

Next, it appears that the drone strike our military implemented in Afghanistan killed an innocent family 10 in all, including an Aide Worker and all of his children.  So much for "Over the Horizon Capabilities" and this happened while we still had troops on the ground in Afghanistan.  It is clear that our satellite technology is not fail safe without intelligence on the ground.  This will be a real problem going forward because Afghanistan will once again become a haven for Terrorists.  So why is the Biden Administration giving the Taliban millions of dollars under the guise of humanitarian assistance while they are still holding Americans and Afghans who helped us hostage.  Just plain incompetence.  

The FBI was found guilty this week of failing to deal with sexual abuse cases of young female athletes for years.  So far only one FBI agent has been fired when in fact heads need to roll all over this corrupt and often incompetent agency.  No mention of any of it from the Biden Administration.  No one from the Biden Administration Department of Justice even bothered to show up for the Senate Hearing on the matter.  

At the same time, France has pulled its ambassador from Washington for the first time ever by an ally.  Seems we are selling nuclear submarines to Australia, which is a good thing; however, in the process we screwed France that had a deal with Australia to sell them 12 diesel powered subs for $66 Billion.  Joe Biden failed to advise French President Macron that this was happening before it made the news.  Of course, France is pissed off at Joe Biden.  What a surprise.  

And, then there is Covid.  Biden had announced that Booster shots were coming for all over the age of 12.  Not happening.  The CDC has only approved Booster shots for those over age 65, which throws a real monkey wrench into the Biden Covid Strategy.  

Joe Biden fiddles while the world burns.  But let's face it.  As a result of Biden's dementia, he is clueless.  There are days when Biden does not even know where he is let alone what is happening around him.  This was a bad week of many for Joe Biden, but who is counting.  Certainly not Fake News or others in the Deep State Swamp.

January 6th Political Prisoners - Injustice At Work

Antifa and Black Lives Matter Terrorists rioted, looted and burned down cities in the last year yet none of them are in jail today.  People were even killed during these attacks on our nation.  Police have been murdered.  If anybody was arrested, they were released by Woke Prosecutors.  Yet, there are several hundred Trump supporters in jail in Washington DC for the riot at the Capitol on January 6th.  They are charged with crimes as little as trespassing; but they are being held without the possibility of bail for as long as nine months awaiting trials.   

We clearly do not have equal justice under the law.  These Trump Supporters are political prisoners plain and simple.  Anyone who commits a crime should be prosecuted; but in many of these instances, it would involve a fine for first time offenders not months in jail.  What is happening is that the Deep State is persecuting people for supporting Donald Trump.  

So there was a march on Washington DC on September 18th to protest this persecution.  A few hundred people showed up.  The Deep State spent millions of dollars preparing for an invasion of Washington DC by a foreign power.  Talk about over kill.  There was no violence; just a protest that lasted an hour or two.   Too bad they did not do as much planning to evacuate Afghanistan, or to deal with the actual invasion at our border.  

The fact is that half the country believes that there was election fraud in 2020 that cost Donald Trump the election.  No matter what Fake News, the National Socialists and the Deep States does or says to deny election fraud, we saw what happened with our own eyes.  Unsolicited mail in ballots, lack of voter ID, tampering with ballots and ballot harvesting allowed Joe Biden to get about 5 million more votes Donald Trump; but a very small number more votes in critical states than resulted in a win for Joe Biden.  Harassing and Persecuting Trump Supporters will not change any of this.  Matter of fact, it will just make us more resolved to reelect President Trump in 2024.  This story is far from over.

Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax

Fake News and the Deep State alleged that the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign.  Of course, none of this was true; but even members of the FBI who all should be in jail were part of the hoax.  Now we know that it was Crooked Hillary Clinton herself with her minions who were paying the Russians to dig up dirt on Donald Trump.  Finally, after several years, the Durham investigation will file a few charges against these crooks; but don't count on much. 

The Deep State protects their own because there are so many implicated in feeding at the trough.  Hillary Clinton should have been charged and gone to jail for deleting more than 30,000 emails that were under Congressional subpoena.  Both the Clinton and Biden Crime families walk free though they have used their offices to become multi millionaires.  Corruption runs deep in the DC Swamp.  

One of the reasons they hated Trump so much is that he was already rich and was not susceptible to the usual bribes that are common in DC.  Since they could not own Trump, they needed him gone so for four years, Fake News and the Deep State were relentless in implementing baseless attacks all aimed at destroying the Trump Presidency.  And, then there were the constant leaks from all the agencies of government including some who Trump appointed to be in his administration.  

They finally had to use election fraud to defeat Donald Trump; but ironically it has only made Trump stronger, which scares the hell of of them.  The January 6th investigation circus is really the third impeachment trial.  They keep trying to destroy Trump; but they will fail again.  They thought they finished Trump off; but far from it.  Trump owns the Republican Party.  If Trump wants the nomination in 2024, he will have it.  If Biden survives his first terms, he will not run again.  Quemala Harris will be challenged for the Socialist Nomination because they know she can't win.  Trump will come roaring back in both 22 to elect a Republican Congress and 24 for his second term in office.  This story is far from over.
