Gold Rush Mascot Banned As Offensive

By Stefan Gleason – Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

The roller coaster presidency of Donald Trump is currently riding high as the stock market races back up to new highs, economic data come in better than expected, and Congressional Democrats’ endless investigations come up empty handed.

Trump’s approval rating recently hit 50% at the same time as CNN’s ratings are tanking.

Over the weekend, President Trump sent CNN and the rest of the “MSM” (mainstream media) into a tizzy by speaking out against the latest Big Tech purge of “far right” voices.

In The Wake Of Education Decline, Parents Look For Options

By Rising Media – Re-Blogged From Mommy Underground

To this end, many families are choosing alternate forms of education.  And many parents are now choosing a schooling option as dissimilar to public education as possible.

Far from a new concept, one method of homeschooling is gaining new ground as parents and experts begin to understand just how far off course American education has come in recent decades.

The failures of the American public education system are becoming more apparent by the day.

Clash of Ideas: The Great Barrier Reef is a cultural icon for Australia. The world’s largest coral reef system stretches over 2300 km (1400 mi) and is home to a great diversity of sea life. Academics and scientific organizations have claimed that the reef is dying from global warming / climate change and ocean acidification (lowering of pH).

Earthships Make a Big Landing in Puerto Rico

By Manuel Crespo Feliciano – Re-Blogged From AccuWeather

In the mountains of the Naranjo neighborhood, a well-known song of Puerto Rican rapper Calle 13 rang from some loudspeaker:

Si quieres cambio verdadero, pues, camina distinto (If you want real change, then, walk differently)” – it was heard.

The words echoed through the leafy trees, mingled with the singing of the birds and resonated through the accumulated mountains of garbage.

Yes, garbage. Endless piles of tires, glass and plastic bottles and aluminum cans that will be used as raw material for the creation of self-sustaining residences that are resistant to atmospheric phenomena.

The song was also a metaphor for what happened in the Naranjo neighborhood: a project known as Earthship Biotecture that is proposed as a solution to the problem of waste management in the territory of Puerto Rico, as well as a way to provide pragmatic options to confront the permanent threat of hurricanes and earthquakes.

Coercion Meets Its Match

By James Howard Kunstler at his website. Posted with his generous permission.

Like the fabled spring zephyr came news that the Golden Golem of Greatness, (a.k.a. President Trump) signed an executive order that would withhold federal funding from colleges and universities that do not demonstrate support for free speech. It has been an amazement to behold the appalling, hypocritical suppression of the first amendment on campuses across the nation, with their ignoble speech codes, asinine safe spaces, sinister kangaroo courts, and racist anti-whiteness crusades.

CLIMATE CONTROL: BRAINWASHING IN SCHOOLS

From the GWPF (UK): – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Executive summary

We have found examples of serious errors, misleading claims, and bias through inadequate treatment of climate issues in school teaching materials. These include many widely-used textbooks, teaching-support resources, and pupil projects.

The National Curriculum has recently been reviewed by the government, but the proposed changes seem unlikely to prevent such practices.

Surveys show that many children are upset and frightened by what they are told is happening to the climate.
