Uncle Ben Endorses Trump…”Because he offered me a job”!

Uncle Ben will impress the guests wearing that tux and bow tie in the White House… And pouring the wine after setting the tables.

Got just the job for you, boy!

Ben Carson: I Didn’t Want To Endorse Trump, But He Promised Me A Position

Dr. Ben Carson, who endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy on Friday, appears less than enthusiastic about that decision. And the real reason the unsuccessful GOP presidential hopeful endorsed his former rival could be a violation of federal law.

Carson told the conservative online site NewsMax TV on Monday that he backed Trump based on a practical calculus.

“I didn’t see a path for [John] Kasich, who I like, or for [Marco] Rubio, who I like. As far as [Ted] Cruz is concerned, I don’t think he’s gonna be able to draw independents and Democrats unless has has some kind of miraculous change… Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes. But that scenario isn’t available.” Pressed to clarify, Carson said he meant he’d prefer to have backed one of the other candidates.

Carson then said that Trump had promised him a role in his administration, “certainly in an advisory capacity.” Asked by NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg whether this meant a cabinet position, Carson declined to “reveal any details about it right now, because all of this is still very liquid.”

Federal law expressly prohibits candidates from directly or indirectly promising “the appointment of any person to any public or private position or employment, for the purpose of procuring support in his candidacy.” The penalty for violations could include fines or a year in jail — two years if the violation was willful.

Megyn Kelly Gets Blasted on “Cops Afraid To Do Their Job Because of BLM”

How did this lady slip onto a Faux News “panel”?

The first panelist, Bo Dietl, a former NYPD detective, said that the Black Lives Matter movement and its calls for greater police accountability have negatively impacted police. He argued that the police are under attack and “getting death threats.”

In response, panelist Lisa Durden called that argument a “racist statement” and accused those who defend the police of making them the “victims” instead of the people unfairly targeted by law enforcement officers.

“To blame the Black Lives Matter movement for why you’re not doing your freaking job, you robocops, is disgusting,” Durden said. “That’s the same thing as saying a woman whose husband beats her — it’s her fault because she stood up for herself. These guys are not the victims.”

Kelly then suggested that police officers might be worried about “becoming the next Darren Wilson,” in reference to the policeman who became infamous after he killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Boo hoo hoo!” Durden responded, before noting that plenty of people are evaluated on their job performance, and police should be no different.

Trump Would Hire Carson for His Administration!

Yup – The Donald has said it! He has in mind a place for Ben Carson in his Administration…

Trump: Would ‘Absolutely’ Hire Carson For My Administration

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said Friday he’d “absolutely” hire another top-tier candidate, Ben Carson, to be part of his administration, but he didn’t say in what position the retired neurosurgeon, who is in second place behind him in the polls, would end up.

“I would love to have that,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, pointing out that he doesn’t know if Carson would be a tough negotiator because he “would say it’s not his wheelhouse.”

But in “certain elements of administration,” Carson would be “very good,” Trump said.

He described Carson as being “a nice man” with whom he has a “good relationship.”

“I’m sure he’ll hit me,” said Trump. “So far, we’ve had a good relationship.”

Also, he said he believes Carson is qualified to be the president, because “if he’s running and if he wins, he’s qualified; that’s the way the system works,” but Carson or anyone else will not “be able to do the job I’m going to do.”

The polling has been “amazing” for both men, Trump said, and when you add the numbers together, “in some cases you’re up to 55 to 60 percent.”

Yep, Uncle Ben will look downright spiffy!

Or perhaps a leadership position…

Social Justice – Michael Brown Killer

What goes ’round comes ’round…

A bit of social justice for America’s most notorious cop.

No One Will Hire Darren Wilson as a Cop

Former Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, who shot dead 18-year-old Michael Brown last August, can’t get a job as a policeman. Wilson, who was cleared on any criminal charges, told the New Yorker that “It’s too hot an issue, so it makes me unemployable.” Wilson now lives in anonymity in the suburbs of St. Louis. He worked briefly stocking inventory at a boot store, but says he stopped after reporters kept calling the business.

Knowing what we know now…Would you let this guy date your daughter?

So why would you hire this guy as a cop?

Seattle Superhero Loses His Day Job

Can you imagine the Daily Planet firing Clark Kent?

Well – that is just what happened to Seattle “Superhero” Phoenix Jones…

Phoenix Jones AKA Ben Fodor Has Been Cut From His Day Job Working With Autistic Children

Superhero Phoenix Jones out of work

Seattle’s self-proclaimed crime-fighting super hero is out of work Wednesday night.

He’s still fighting crime, but Phoenix Jones is no longer working for the state and he says kids are the ones who will be suffering.
Most of us know Phoenix Jones on the street, fighting crime and in the dark.  But his day job shows a much different character.
“I teach basic life skills to autistic children,” said Jones.  “Stuff like balancing a checkbook, if you want to go shopping at the mall, how to figure out how much money to spend, how to balance money for the entire month, how to survive with your autism that you have.”
Phoenix Jones has worked for DSHS for the past five years, until last week, when he got a letter from the state.
“It basically just said that effectively immediately, I was no longer able to work with disabled or autistic children,” said Jones.  ‘The reason is because I was put on a list of people who interject themselves into dangerous situations and some government agency put me on that list.”
It all stemmed from this incident last month when the masked superhero tried to break up a fight by dispersing a can of pepper spray on a crowd.  He was arrested for assault.  But no charges have been filed against him and Phoenix Jones says losing his job isn’t fair.
“I feel like it’s an unjust characterization of me. In five years I haven’t had one complaint from any of the people I’ve worked with,” said Jones.
Phoenix Jones says he’ll be patrolling the streets as a superhero during the day, until he can find a new job.  And he hopes that will be soon because he says he has a family to support.

SAT Scores Tank

The Writing/Reading part of the College Test has hot new lows. “Merde” – we are producing more conservatives!

One of the drivers of this is likely the fact that 27% of those taking the SAT don’t speak English as a first language. 10 Years ago that number was 19%.

I’m not a big believer that the College Tests, the SAT and tit’s competitor the ACT indicate anything more a than acculturation to the education model. Change the model, and you change the “important” skills. The issue here is we have a system which encourages kids to go to college, even though we aren’t creating jobs for them when they graduate. Perhaps the “problem” in American Education is finding a way to make it more reactive to market demand?

And perhaps we need on hell of a lot more Scientists and Engineers, and an economy which rewards people with those skills.

SAT Scores Fall as Number of Test-Takers Rises

Average SAT scores fell across the board this past year—down 3 points in critical reading, 2 points in writing, and 1 point in math.

This year, 1.65 million students in the high school graduating class of 2011 took the college-entrance exam, up from 1.6 million for the class of 2010, according to results released today.

The increase in test-takers can lead to a decline in mean scores, the College Board says, because more students of varying academic ability are represented.

Regardless of the drop in mean scores, according to a press release from the New York City-based College Board, the test’s sponsor, “there are more high-performing students among the class of 2011 than ever before.”

Each section of the test is scored from 200 to 800, with a 2400 for all sections combined being perfect. Critical-reading scores in this year’s report compared with last year’s dropped from 500 to 497, math from 515 to 514, and writing from 491 to 489, for an overall score change from 1506 to 1500—all statistically significant. Since 2007, the first year that College Board June cohort data are available, critical reading and math scores have each had a 4-point decline, while math scores have remained stable.

The new total test-taking figures show the gap further narrowing between the SAT and the rival ACT, which unveiled its numbers last month with 1.62 million students in the class of 2011 taking the test, an all-time high for the Iowa City, Iowa-based testing company as well. Last year, the College Board began including all test-takers through June of their senior year and did so again.

A Parting of the Shills – Glenn Beck and Fox News

Beck off to a New Padded Room?

It is looking more and more like the combination of Color of Change’s boycott, and an incredible amount of hubris on the part of Glenn Beck…

That come the end of the year, Mr Beck will no longer have a slot on Faux News.

This follows his radio cancellation in two of the largest markets in the country – New York and Philadelphia.

There may yet be a small measure of justice in the conservative MSM!

The Fading Power of Beck’s Alarms

Almost every time I flipped on television last week, there was a deeply angry guy on a running tirade about the conspiracies afoot, the enemies around all corners, and how he alone seemed to understand what was under way.

While it’s true that Charlie Sheensucked up a lot of airtime last week, I’d been watching Glenn Beck, the Fox News host who invoked Hezbollah, socialists, the price of gas, Shariah law,George SorosPlanned Parenthood, and, yes, Charlie Sheen, as he predicted a coming apocalypse.

Mr. Beck, a conservative Jeremiah and talk-radio phenomenon, burst into television prominence in 2009 by taking the forsaken 5 p.m. slot on Fox News and turning it into a juggernaut. A conjurer of conspiracies who spotted sedition everywhere he looked, Mr. Beck struck a big chord and ended up on the cover of Time magazine and The New York Times Magazine, and held rallies all over the country that were mobbed with acolytes. He achieved unheard-of ratings, swamped the competition and at times seemed to threaten the dominion of Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity at Fox.

But a funny thing happened on the way from the revolution. Since last August, when he summoned more than 100,000 followers to the Washington mall for the “Restoring Honor” rally, Mr. Beck has lost over a third of his audience on Fox — a greater percentage drop than other hosts at Fox. True, he fell from the great heights of the health care debate in January 2010, but there has been worrisome erosion — more than one million viewers — especially in the younger demographic.

He still has numbers that just about any cable news host would envy and, with about two million viewers a night, outdraws all his competition combined. But the erosion is significant enough that Fox News officials are willing to say — anonymously, of course; they don’t want to be identified as criticizing the talent — that they are looking at the end of his contract in December and contemplating life without Mr. Beck.
