Remember when it was concerning that Joe Salazar’s representative basically gave her blessing for an undercover James O’Keefe and his friends to commit voter fraud? This is why. Today, our sources tell us that allegedly a Denver Police Officer ballot with a signature cure turned up in Adams County. The only problem? The officer is saying he did not vote. Our source up north is further saying that many showing up on the cured list have moved away. . . .
The “re-education of the masses” is moving quickly now, especially when it involves our children. Enter Common Core, an educational initiative surreptitiously sweeping America. By those who understand it, it is a “Trojan Horse,” according Ms. Orlean Koehle, an expert on what Common Core is – and what it’s not, and what it doing to our children from elementary school through high school. Ms. Orlean Koehle was a recent guest on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report and explained the dangers of this deceptive program.
What happens when an informed citizen dares to question the agenda of those pushing Common Core on our children? In one case, Robert Small, an attendee at a meeting of the Baltimore County Schools, became frustrated when his questions were ignored and went unanswered. Rather than settling for the dog-and-pony show, he stood up and demanded answers, only to be physically removed from the meeting and charged with second degree assault of a police officer. For asking questions, Mr. Small now faces up to ten-(10) years in prison. (Click on the image at left to watch the video of Mr. Small getting his questioned answered… um… being removed from the meeting for daring to ask “unapproved and unscripted” questions.
Prior to his abrupt departure from the room, Mr. Small stated: “I want to know how many parents here are aware that the goal of the Common Core standards isn’t to prepare kids for full-fledged universities, it’s to prepare them for community college…..Parents, take control. We’re sick of this. This is not a CNN political game. This is a public town hall… Listen, don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions. Confront them. They don’t want to do it in public…. Parents, you need to question these people…. (emphasis by this author).
The Hagmann & Hagmann Report is committed to confront these petty tyrants wherever and whenever possible, and expose these Marxists exactly for who and what they are.
Listen to the interview with Orlean Koehle describe, in detail, what Common Core is and who (and what) is behind it. Click here to listen (advance to the second hour).
What is Common Core?
“Common Core State Standards Initiative” is the latest education program coming down from the Obama administration, preparing the way for Obama’s “Race to the Top Assessments,” which will take place in 2014, when all the computer software is in place to test the minds of the nation’s children to see how well Common Core (CC) has been sufficiently taught. The test will be given online, as are most of the lessons preparing for it.
CC pretends to be a benign “State” program, State-written and controlled. It is touted as being “more rigorous” and will “better prepare students for college and the workplace.” However, none of the above is true. CC is really a deceptive Trojan Horse, a national program, written by a national cartel, supported by President Obama and the Federal Department of Education. It is imposing national standards and curriculum on all of the 46 States that have signed onto it. [Texas, Alaska, Nebraska, and Virginia have refused it. Minnesota has adopted the English, but not the math.] READ IT ALL HERE.
The New York Times goes out of its way to blame the problems in the case on ineptness by the prosecution, but, with witnesses such as Mr. Good supporting Zimmerman’s description of what happened, any prosecution would have faced a very difficult case.
. . . The defense scored a number of points during cross-examination. It showcased Mr. Zimmerman’s injuries, including a “likely” broken nose, as a physician assistant testified. The first police officer to arrive on the scene said that Mr. Zimmerman’s back and jeans were wet and that his jacket had bits of grass, suggesting he was on his back at some point. The officer also said that Mr. Zimmerman told him he had been yelling for help.
In addition, the resident with the best view of the altercation that night said the person “with lighter skin color” in red or white was being straddled on the ground by someone wearing dark colors. (Mr. Zimmerman was wearing a red jacket.) The witness further described a “ground and pound.” The person on the top, he said, was moving his arms in a downward motion (though the witness added he did not see actual punches). . . . .
This is how the progressive characterize and distort the Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin reporting …
Look at how the progressives insert pejoratives when reporting. The neighborhood is a gated community controlled by a homeowner’s association. As private property, the police do not conduct routine patrols on the property and only appear when summoned. Thus, the HOA has their own neighborhood watch organization – which residents join and must be approved. So it is unlikely that Zimmerman is self-appointed, although he may be characterized as a volunteer. As for being a vigilante, this is a pejorative mischaracterization of all neighborhood watch volunteers. The term “up to no good” is clearly taken out of context – and may accurately describe the actions of a person of suspicious origin, acting suspiciously by cutting between homes and not using established sidewalks. The dispatcher’s comments are not an order as Zimmerman is not a police officer and the dispatcher has no authority to do much more than elicit information and provide suggestions. Therefore, the remote dispatcher has no way of knowing what the on-scene conditions might be or the ability to decide on a course of action.
Defense: Block Zimmerman’s Calls
Prosecutors in George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial sought on Monday to have the self-appointed neighborhood vigilante’s previous calls to police be admitted into evidence, while the defense has tried to block them as irrelevant to the case at hand. Prosecutors played a tape of a previous call Zimmerman made to a non-emergency number, in which Zimmerman described 17-year-old Trayvon Martin as “up to no good.” Zimmerman offered to follow the teen, although the dispatcher said “You don’t need to do that.” Earlier on Monday, defense attorney Don West said he hoped the jury hadn’t heard of Zimmerman, using a knock-knock joke to illustrate his point. Nobody laughed.
Now read the NBC news story where the words used in the story above do not appear. A deliberate attempt to condition the debate to advance the progressive’s agenda that Zimmerman is guilty of racial profiling and committed a crime. For the record, the progressive article is commentary and not journalistic reporting, so such comments are permissible as opinion, and not necessarily reported fact.
**DANGER** NEW YORK LIBERALS POSE CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO ALL RESIDENTS: EXTEND POLICE POWERS IN THE GUISE OF ANTI-HARASSMENT LEGISLATION
The more observant among you will notice that the number of cases where law enforcement harasses or intimidates civilians photographing their actions or merely watching their activities has risen dramatically. To the point where law enforcement authors routinely confiscate cameras, cell-phones or demand that civilians move off their own property using the threat of arrest as an intimidating factor. Even when confronted with bad behavior, the law enforcement family rallies around officers accused of wrong-doing – sometimes to the point of perjury and filing false police reports.
This bill is so poorly conceived and written as to endanger every New York resident that meets with the disapproval of a rogue, disgruntled, or angry police officer. Perhaps, the legislation should be extended so that any police officer who falsely claims harassment or writes a false police report should be fined and jailed, punishable up to four years in prison?
Senate Passes Bill Making the Harassment of a Police Officer a Crime
The New York State Senate today passed a bill that creates the crime of aggravated harassment of a police or peace officer. The bill (S.2402), sponsored by Senator Joe Griffo (R-C-I, Rome) would make it a felony to harass, annoy, or threaten a police officer while on duty.
“Our system of laws is established to protect the foundations of our society,” Senator Griffo said. “Police officers who risk their lives every day in our cities and on our highways deserve every possible protection, and those who treat them with disrespect, harass them and create situations that can lead to injuries deserve to pay a price for their actions.”
The bill establishes this crime as a Class E Felony, punishable by up to four years in prison.
“At a time when shocking incidents of disrespect and outright confrontation are at an all-time high, the men and women who patrol the streets of our cities deserve every possible protection we can offer them,” Senator Griffo stated. “My bill would make it a crime to take any type of physical action to try to intimidate a police officer. This is a necessary action because we can see from the rise in incidents that too many people in our society have lost the respect they need to have for a police officer. We need to make it very clear that when a police officer is performing his duty, every citizen needs to comply and that refusal to comply carries a penalty.”
“Professionally, I am grateful to see this bill pass through the Senate. Our police officers have a very dangerous job and need the support of our government leaders to help make them safe,” said Utica Police Department Chief Mark Williams.
“All too often persons are physically challenging police officers in the line of duty. Currently in those instances where an officer is physically attack (short of sustaining a physical injury) the lawful charge is only a violation. The consequences are way too low for the offender and it sends the wrong message to the public.
Police officers are the public’s first line of defense to restore order in dangerous/chaotic situations. Citizens do not have the legal right to physically challenge the authority of an officer lawfully performing their duties.
With the news concentrated on the horrors of Obamacare and the scandals swirling around the toilet bowl that is the Obama Administration, this video should serve as a reminder that we are all Americans – and cannot be divided by those who are pursuing their own personal or political agenda. Good news is hard to find in the mainstream media where bizarre behavior is the norm and the rule of the day is “if it bleeds, it leads.”

The local police reacted heroically to the Boston terror bombings, and it is tragic that MIT police officer Sean Collier was a victim of the terrorists’ shooting spree. However, the inescapable conclusion, after the media get done praising local police reaction to the bombings, is that law enforcement at all levels broke down, leaving law-abiding citizens and the police themselves exposed and vulnerable to criminal and terrorist elements. So-called “Boston Strong,” a solidarity campaign with the community and the victims, is a concept that should have been in place to prevent terrorism from happening.
One of the officials who used to be in charge of homeland security for the state of Massachusetts is Juliette Kayyem, a former Obama Administration official who suddenly emerged on CNN after the bombings as an expert unable or unwilling to identify the terrorists as Islamic. It was a disgraceful performance.
As if the bombings were not bad enough, the emerging evidence is that the terrorist brothers were marijuana dealers before they took up jihadism, and that they avoided law enforcement while dealing drugs in the community and on campus. In other words, these terrorists were planning violence against Americans while breaking our drug laws, perhaps to finance their own terrorism. They made a mockery of the local police and the feds and almost got away, if not for their own reckless behavior after they were publicly identified, and a resident who spotted one of the fugitives in his backyard on a boat.
It was not a success story for law enforcement, no matter how much spin is applied by the media. And while Obama has expressed his sympathy for the victims, the federal government failed to stop the bombings in Boston when they already had information about the older brother’s foreign travels and jihadist activities. Obama’s administration has to explain how federal agencies like the FBI and CIA let the older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev travel in and out of a Muslim region of Russia where terrorist groups apparently openly plot against the West.
But the foreign travel isn’t the only controversy. In the latest sensational revelation, CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports that investigators believe the brothers helped finance their plot through drug sales, and that Tamerlan Tsarnaev personally “made money selling marijuana.” So when he was not traveling abroad, apparently to learn about terrorism, he was dealing drugs. He was probably the source of dope for his younger brother, who was reported to be a heavy pot smoker while a student enjoying a scholarship at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in turn, sold marijuana to other people on campus.
In addition to the reported marijuana smuggling and use, a triple murder in 2011 in Boston, in which marijuana was spread over the bodies, is now being re-investigated for a possible link to the older brother. One of the victims was a friend of his. All of the victims had their throats slit.
The older brother was a marijuana smuggler, but the younger brother was a pothead and a dealer. The Boston Globe says three people admitted buying drugs from the 19-year-old. “Several fellow students reported he earned at least some cash selling marijuana—at least the portion he didn’t smoke himself,” the paper reported.
More proof that politicians appear to be treated differently that the rest of us. Even though this goof is the Mayor, why was he not arrested and charged …
Here is the story of a Mayor who allegedly ordered the police to pick up a young man (kidnapping under color of authority?), drop him off at the Mayor’s House where the Mayor gave this young man alcohol and begged for sex. Unfortunately, this is one of the anti-gun Mayors on Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” Committee. Unfortunate because he pulled out various guns to allegedly intimidate and/or threaten suicide.
Of course, there is the standard excuse … alcoholism!
Here is the news report …
Authorities say on the evening of Feb. 21, the first-term Republican was drunk. They say he had a borough police officer drive to neighboring Trainer, where he picked up a 20-year-old man who considered Schiliro a father figure and mentor. He was delivered to the mayor’s Green Street home where he found Schiliro intoxicated and despondent as his adolescent daughter slept upstairs. Court documents say the mayor gave the young man two or three glasses of wine and asked him 20 to 30 times if he could give him oral sex; the 20-year-old refused.
That led the mayor to produce three guns and wave them around, at one point threatening suicide. At least one shot was discharged, officials say, leaving the young man terrified and feeling trapped. Finally he was able to leave and walked home, where he told his mother about the ordeal.
Schiliro and his attorney, Michael Malloy, have basically conceded that account (except for the sexual proposition). They have said the mayor sold the guns the next morning and got rid of all the booze in his house. Schiliro has also realized he has a problem with alcohol and is seeking outpatient treatment. And despite the fact that members of borough council and the local GOP leadership have asked him to resign, Schiliro says he isn’t going anywhere.
Now facing charges of official oppression, recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment and providing alcohol to a minor, and freed on $50,000 unsecured bail, he hasn’t changed his mind. <Source>
Bottom line …
There was a 13-year old daughter asleep nearby. So why is he not also been charged with endangering his child and having her removed by child protective services?
These “don’t do as I do, do as I say” liberals are out of control. Bloomberg’s website no longer lists the mayor as a supporter (being silently scrubbed to avoid embarrassment). Enough. Certainly the Republican party knows or has an inking of the personal foibles of its membership and should be working to clean up its candidates and politicians, lest the democrats remain the party of power in perpetuity.
And, by the way – I do not see any gun-related charges on this particular list of charges.
