‘Reynolds Wrap’s #1 Customer’: Malkin Rips Maddow’s Conspiracy Theories

Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin said MSNBC host Rachel Maddow delves so often into “destroy Trump” conspiracy theories, she is “Reynolds’ Wrap’s number one customer.” “The tin foil hat consumption is through the roof,” Malkin said. “I think that Rachel Maddow must be Reynolds’ Wrap’s number one customer,” she said. Malkin and Sean Hannity recounted several incidents on Maddow’s news program in which she tried to draw connections between President Trump and Russia. “Even Chris Matthews said it’s dead,” Hannity said of Trump-Russia a “conspiracy theory.” Malkin dismissed a Rolling Stone profile of Maddow in which they bill her “the most trusted name in news.” She said Maddow shares with several others the “number one goal… to bash and obstruct the Trump administration.”

Honestly..  Who is really dumb enough to admit the actually regularly watch Rachell Maddow now that she has completely been discredited??   I saw her “breaking news” piece where she dragged out the “bombshell” about Trump’s partial IRS return from a few years ago.  What did we learn?  He’s a billionaire.  Yep, knew that.  And that he paid a LOT of taxes (around $38 million that year).  Yep.  We knew that too.  That self-righteous, sanctimonious, arrogant, smug, extreme liberal elitist is such a nauseating tool..  And, what’s worse…she thinks she’s smart!  Yet, all of her conspiracy theories and “fake news” pieces have been thoroughly discredited!!  What a moron..  Kudos to Colorado Springs native Michelle Malkin for calling Rachell on her nonsense.  Excellent!!

 

Malkin: Hillary’s Federal Education Jackboot Squad

Brace yourselves, parents: Hillary Clinton’s Fed Ed jackboot squad is from the government and is here to “help.” Clinton wants a cadre of new-government educrats to undo the decades-old damage of old-government educrats in America’s worst public schools. She pitched her creepy proposal at the Democratic presidential debate in Michigan on Sunday for an “education SWAT team” to swarm down and rescue students from failing districts in decrepit cities such as Detroit (run by whom? Oh, yeah. Democrats!). “I want to set up inside the Department of Education, for want of a better term, kind of an education SWAT team, if you will,” Clinton explained in a bizarre, semi-blaccent, “where we’ve got qualified people, teachers, principals, maybe folks who are retired, maybe folks who are active, but all of whom are willing to come and help.” Clinton’s SWAT-team solution, you should know, is like all her other authoritarian plans: a moldy, recycled oldie. In fact, the U.S. Department of Education already has a real military-like enforcement division housed in its Office of the Inspector General — and armed with its own arsenal of Remington pump-action shotguns and Glock pistols. As usual, Big Sis’s brilliant idea to fix the schools boils down to throwing yet more money down the sinkhole. According to the latest data, America spent more than $600 billion to fund K–12 education in 2011, mostly from state and local taxes. Last year, the feds allocated an estimated $154 billion on education, with a large chunk going to Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I Grants to Local Education Agencies, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act State Grants, and the Pell Grant program for college students. Washington already spends more per student (nearly $13,000 per pupil) in both primary and secondary education than any other of the 34 wealthiest countries in the world except for Austria, Luxembourg, Norway, and Switzerland, according to analysis of data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Under the Bush administration, the No Child Left Behind behemoth authorized $23 billion a year on intrusive and ineffective federal testing and accountability mandates. Under the Obama administration, the feds threw $4 billion into the “Race to the Top” racket, $10 billion into an Education Jobs Fund for teachers unions, and $100 billion in pork-stuffed stimulus funding for school programs and initiatives administered by the U.S. Department of Education. Detroit Public Schools, plagued by massive deficits, financial mismanagement and graft, collected a whopping $530 million of that stimulus slush fund — nearly $50 million of which went to a technology boondoggle that provided 40,000 Asus laptops to students and teachers despite little evidence nationwide that such programs do anything to raise student achievement. States are spending upwards of $10 billion to implement the bipartisan Common Core racket of testing, textbooks, and technology. That’s on top of the pre-existing $700 million spent by schools nationwide on other standardized tests and assessments and the $24 billion in annual spending required by the NCLB successor, the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act. Mo’ money has only produced mo’ problems. American test scores are still abysmal. One in ten high schools remains a dropout factory. Highly touted improvements in graduation rates, such as those in Alabama, were achieved by abandoning requirements that students pass a high-school exit exam. Detroit’s schools, swimming in $3.5 billion of accumulated debt, face bankruptcy in April. The district is now under FBI investigation for a vendor kickback scheme involving the very kind of “experts” — entrenched teachers, self-serving principals, and profligate school officials — whom Clinton would enlist to rescue the schools they are guilty of plundering. It’s government SWAT-team business as usual: Destroying the village to “save” it. — Michelle Malkin is the author of Who Built That: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Tinkerpreneurs.
