Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller has reported that vandalism on a college campus in Ohio, previously alleged to have been committed by 'white conservatives' or 'white racists' had actually been committed by white liberals, trying to slander white conservatives. The Daily Caller reports that one of the two students removed from Oberlin College this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Barack Obama, not a white conservative, as the acts had tried to portray.

The Blaze has an incredible story out of Rose, Michigan. The father of a rape victim has been violently targeted allegedly by a gang of teachers who are in trouble for openly supporting another teacher who raped an eight-year-old boy.

Neal Erickson was sentenced 15-30 years in prison in July for the crime of raping John Janczewski's son in school. He took action against the teacher, but unbelievably, a group of teachers has spoken out in support of Erickson, saying things such as: "This was an isolated incident. He understands the severity of his action and is sincere in his desire to make amends..." Janczewski describes the terrible anguish he felt, describing how the molestation destroyed their relationship as his son's personality dramatically shifted. "At one thirty in the morning on a Saturday, I was awoken to a bomb sound going off," Janczewski said, choking back emotion. "I went to the window to find my garage was on fire and engulfed in flames, my camper and the side of my house...If I wouldn't have woken up, we could've all died." The local school board is holding a meeting tonight to decide the fate of the teachers who supported the child molester. Parents are threatening to pull their students from the school if the teachers aren't fired. The teachers are threatening to sue if they are fired.

"A mistake was made on the report. Engagement was increased by 10%. The customer issue was addressed." What's wrong with these sentences?

Well, grammatically speaking, nothing. But, each of these statements uses the passive voice - where the subject does not act, but rather is acted upon by an outside force. And in any professional setting, that's a big mistake. Here's why. When you're applying for a job, seeking a raise or promotion, or otherwise marketing your talents, using the passive voice tells potential employers and managers that you are a passive person. To succeed in your job search - and even on the job - you need to convey that you are the kind of person who makes those things happen.

Pres. Obama is asking public school teachers to "take it easy" on black students who misbehave.

On July 26, 2012, Obama signed an Executive Order to create the African American Education Initiative. The order births a new federal bureaucracy and effectively offers black students a green light to misbehave at school. Obama asked public school teachers to reduce the number of disciplinary actions taken against black students. Specifically, it calls on schools to "not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools." The order, however, does not include any suggestions to improve black students' inappropriate behavior. Members of the new bureaucracy will work to pressure public school systems into complying with the president's order. To do that, public schools must utilize a quota system.

If Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has his way, everything President Obama has signed into law would be repealed, and he is considering a bill to do just that, The Hill reported Wednesday.

"King put forward this suggestion to an Iowa audience on Tuesday, when he also reiterated his threat to sue the Obama administration for its June decision not to deport younger illegal immigrants," Pete Kasperowicz wrote. He also told a group of about 60 people in Humboldt County that he intends to sue the administration over an executive order stopping the deportation of certain illegal immigrants. ''I am bringing him to court and we're going to defend the Constitution of the United States and the separation of powers,'' he said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein referred to the US, Canada and Mexico as "the Homeland" at an NSA Senate briefing on Wednesday, presenting a map that united the three nations as one.

At a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting held to acquire details on the National Security Agency's mass surveillance programs, Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif.) made a geographic mistake in which she united three large countries into one. The error went by without comment during the briefing, but generated a significant response upon closer examination of the map. During the briefing, Feinstein, who serves as chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was defending the NSA's data-collection programs when she pulled out a world map that identified North America as the "Homeland". The newly-declassified diagram showed terror activity that the NSA had allegedly disrupted throughout the world.

Michelle Hammack, a teacher from Arlington, Fla., was fired last week because she left her classroom to put out an oven fire. The teacher smelled smoke at the Little Temples Childcare School during her student's naptime.

Hammack left her class when she smelled something burning. "I just leaned over and peeked around and there was a fire in the oven," Hammack said. "I ran in there and opened it to try to put it out, and the fire alarm started going off." She told CBS Jackonville, "When I got to the third classroom by the kitchen, I could see that it was just a contained fire in the oven." Hammack returned to her class and evacuated her children a safe distance away from the school. After her children were accounted for she ran back into the building, located a fire extinguisher and headed back to the oven fire. She extinguished and contained the fire before the fire department arrived.

The University of Southern California is facing a federal civil rights investigation after students filed a complaint alleging that the school ignored rapes on campus and even failed to prosecute attackers after they confessed.

One USC student, remaining anonymous, involved in the complaint stated that campus police decided the young woman wasn't raped because her attack did not orgasm. "Because he stopped, it was not rape," she was told, according to the complaint. "Even though his penis penetrated your vagina, because he stopped, it was not a crime." Because her attacker did not orgasm, campus police decided not to refer the case to Los Angeles Police. Another student cited a similar occurrence.
