The Quintessential Vile Politician in America

“The most dangerous speaker of the House we’ve had probably in American history”

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently blamed President Trump for the incredible border crisis created by Joe Biden’s reckless and foolish reversal of Trump’s policies. She went on to claim that the Biden administration is on a “good path” to manage the situation.

So, inquiring minds want to know: Is Pelosi as far gone mentally as Biden? And, as I wondered last month, is anyone in politics more vile than she is?

Pelosi has cemented her historical legacy and likely will only be remembered for her utter abuse and subsequent destruction of the impeachment process. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingich summed up her tenure recently when he condemned Pelosi as the “’the most dangerous speaker of the House we’ve had probably in American history.” He then added, “She uses her power ruthlessly.”

Beyond the Pale

From her private hair salon visits – when everybody else was locked down – to her gourmet ice cream, to her embrace of U.S. riots (which didn’t put her in danger), to her civilization-destroying HR-1 bill, to her continual public posturing of feigned sincerity, there is much to dislike. She seems to be evil personified and getting worse each day.

Pelosi is so out of touch with what everyday Americans experience that she is almost an anachronism. Her unbounded hatred of Donald Trump exceeds that of the typical leftist. From ripping up his whirlwind 2020 State of the Union speech to all of the little acts that she’s undertaken, her phoniness is amply on display.

Has there ever been a speaker more venal, more vicious, and more vindictive than she is?

On many occasions in 2020, she has said “I’m praying for President Trump.” Can anyone, let alone God, accept that as the truth? She pushed the impeachment button twice and would do it a third time and a fourth time if it were possible.

The first impeachment was based on shoddy information and shallow rationale. Even far-leftists should have been up in arms. Don’t they know that they’ve opened the wrong door and that this will happen to them someday soon?

Whistling in the Wind

Based on a single unidentified whistleblower, Pelosi initiated impeachment proceedings against President Trump, primarily as a result of a phone call he had with the Ukrainian prime minister.

Next, Donald Trump had no impact on the Capitol riot that took place on January 6th. It didn’t matter what President Trump said on the Mall, these people had already planned to rush the Capitol and occupy it for however long they could.

To impeach Donald Trump a second time, after he’s already out of office (which made the quest absurd), Pelosi and the looney Left needed a valid rationale. The FBI report didn’t support them, nor did the timeline of events.

A Cozy Comfortable Cell?

When Pelosi’s time is over and editors write her obituary, perhaps some will have enough objectivity to say that among all the speakers of the House since the nation’s founding, she did not serve with distinction.

She manipulated her office and the American public, on a continual basis, for her own personal power, for the wealth she could generate, and to diminish our freedoms as Americans. If this isn’t said about her, then whoever writes the obituary will be engaging in fantasy.

Academic Underachievement As a Permanent Condition

Academic achievement occurs through individual effort: One boy and one girl after another rising above

Published

on

On the state and local level, as decisions are made about how and in what form we will educate the nation’s children, an age-old issue remains. The underlying causes of income inequality and civil unrest likely has less to do with media-inflamed coverage and more to do with a lingering issue that few people want to earnestly discuss: educational disparity.

In virtually every U.S. school system, the disparity year after year, decade after decade, and even longer, in mathematics competency, reading proficiency, test scores, honor roll status, and graduation rates, between African American students and other students is disturbing.

A Disturbing Reality

Here in the third decade of the third millennium, with a male African American high school dropout rate at 40% across the U.S., can anyone view the situation optimistically? Any responsible American would understandably be concerned.

As Eric Hanushek, who is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, as well as a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, exclaimed “It’s remarkable.” Following his extensive analysis of the situation, he remarked, “I knew that the gap hadn’t been closing too much, but when I actually looked at the data I was myself surprised.”

In one community after another, and one school system after another, when strenuous efforts to bridge the gap do not bear fruit, invariably someone yells “foul,” as if some grand conspiracy is occurring and a magic wand, yet to be waved, could suddenly redress all. And, as if hard-working, dedicated teachers are not attempting their utmost for each of their students.

An Undesired Path

Consider the school system in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, North Carolina. This locale, deemed, “The southern part of heaven,” by a variety of writers, is among the most progressive in the United States. The teachers and educators here have a vested interest in demonstrating that their school system, beyond all others, can succeed in the vital area of closing achievement gaps between whites and minorities.

Nevertheless, year in and year out the gap remains. So, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education becomes primed to try anything! Another in an endless line of supposed “fixes” was to eliminate the advanced math classes in the middle schools and to lump all non-pre-algebra students together, with similar plans to eliminate other advanced classes such as in language arts.

Just as you cannot easily erect a sound building on quicksand, and you cannot expect to solve a decades-old problem by starting with a shaky foundation. Taking a lowest common denominator approach to developing school curriculum has never consistently worked, anywhere. It frustrates the students and dramatically increases a teacher’s burden – all such students must then be taught at individual learning speeds. Do you know any superhuman teachers? If so, could you afford them?

Face the Real Issues

Permanently closing the academic gap between underachieving students and the rest of the student population requires addressing reality – airing the truth about the disparity – not resorting to politically “correct” psychobabble and curricula finagling for another ten years, and then another ten, and then another.

This disparity encompasses such issues as the number of hours the television is on in given households, family or parental encouragement for completing homework assignments, a regular workspace, and established hours for studying in a quiet environment, among other factors.

Until solid analysis, exploration, and programs that address these issues are undertaken, no amount of wrangling with classes will prove to be the “winning formula.” And, school boards will have no chance of effectively addressing the continuing problem of poor academic performance among student groups.

In Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story The Sign of Four, detective Sherlock Holmes says, “…When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” The schools in U.S. communities routinely exhaust talented teachers with a task that cannot be solved by them, nor is it theirs to solve.

Students Eager to Learn

However improbable to those who wish to pretend otherwise, academic achievement occurs through individual effort: One boy and one girl after another rising above and cracking the books, then coming to class as serious students, eager to learn, and primed to excel. Such achievement is not likely to occur any other way.

Otherwise, expect that income inequality and civil unrest will continue for decades into the 21st century.
