The document proposes that DeVos “rename the Department of Education to President’s Advisory Council on Public Education Reform, a sub-Cabinet level department whose goal is to become a consulting service to state departments of education.”
Once the Department of Education has been all but eradicated, they then propose the following list of items for the state and local level:
Restore Ten Commandments posters to all K-12 public schools.
Clearly post America’s Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
Encourage K-12 schools to recognize traditional holidays (e.g., Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas) as celebrations of our Judeo-Christian heritage.
Implement select Bible classes, such as Chuck Stetson’s Bible Literacy Project.
Encourage instruction on U.S. and World history from the Judeo-Christian perspective for middle school and high school history and civics classes.
Develop and recommend In-service training on philosophy of education for K-12 faculty based on historical Judeo-Christian philosophy of education.
Strongly push states to remove secular-based sex education materials from school facilities, and emphasize parental instruction.
At the kind of journalism conferences I attend, Aron Pilhofer, who had key roles in the digital operations of the New York Times and the Guardian in recent years, has been asking a very good question. What if news organizations optimized every part of the operation for trust?Not for speed, traffic, profits, headlines or prizes… but for trust. What would that even look like?
Sad to see Hillary's $30 billion plan for retraining and reviving a region killed by an ugly misleading soundbite. Well, they got their coal champion. Make Appalachia Great Again, I presume - just like killing Obamacare - it'll all be so easy. In any case, China's ending its coal love affair and natural gas combined with the rise of renewables means it's going nowhere domestically, no matter how many presidential orders Trump signs. I hope those Appalachians are wielding pitchforks next time he visits - the just might have a point or two to take up.
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is coming under fire from conservatives amid a simmering behind-the-scenes fight over how far to take President Donald Trump's push to undo his predecessor's climate change agenda.
In discussions with the White House over the executive order Trump is scheduled to sign on Tuesday, Pruitt successfully argued against including language revoking the agency's 2009 “endangerment finding," according to two sources close to the issue.
Yates and another witness at the planned hearing, former CIA director John Brennan, had made clear to government officials by Thursday that their testimony to the committee probably would contradict some statements that White House officials had made, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The following day, when Yates’s lawyer sent a letter to the White House indicating that she still wanted to testify, the hearing was canceled.
President Trump wants a tax cut across the board, according to the plan he published during the campaign. But House Speaker Paul Ryan and colleagues have put forward a plan that would not substantially reduce taxes for the middle class, and many households would pay more.
as the article, "Internal White House battles spill into Treasury" by Ben White & Nancy Cook @ Poltico.com, March 27, points out, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and his aide Craig Phillips, and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn (who is in on many White House conferences) are considered in general to be Democrats and therefore, to conservative Republicans, they are dangerous flaming liberals.
Two months later, on March 15, 2013, Bannon happened to be attending the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington when Trump took the stage. Trump had been a marginal figure at most in politics up to that point, entertaining a Reform Party run in the 2000 election — when he speculated that he would probably take more votes from the Democratic candidate than the Republican one — and leading a conspiratorial crusade in 2011 to force Obama to release his birth certificate. The possibility that he might be a suitable host body for Bannon’s worldview had not occurred to Bannon before Trump spoke.
HHS Tom Price: Measuring outcomes denies, interferes with doctor patient freedoms! ..Hospitals and physician groups have been counting on support from Medicare - the federal insurance program for the elderly and disabled - to continue driving payment reform policies built into Obamacare that reward doctors and hospitals for providing high quality care at a lower cost.
