President Trump Needs to Break the Back of the Education Cartel
Quote:Hillary Re-Emerges Looking Like Death Warmed Up
Clinton resembled an extra from Dawn of the Dead

Hillary Clinton re-emerged publicly for the first time since her concession speech looking like death warmed up, hardly a rebuke to the “conspiracy theorists” who questioned her health throughout the election cycle.

Hillary gave a speech at a gala for the Children’s Defense Fund, which is somewhat ironic given that she once laughed about defending a child rapist who she knew was guilty.

However, some of the people in attendance might have thought they’d accidentally stumbled onto the set of a re-make of Dawn of the Dead and that Hillary was one of the extras.

Hillary looked gaunt and exhausted, with huge bags under her bloodshot eyes. The Daily Mail was a little more polite, reporting that Hillary was “weary-looking”.

That’s odd given that she just had a week off and spent most of her presidential campaign sleeping or AWOL.

“Seeing her now, I wonder if she was wearing some sort of prosthetics on her face in combination with buckets of paint to make herself appear human,” remarked Chris Menahan.

“Hillary isn’t going to make it to see Trump inaugurated,” one Twitter user joked.

Her dreadful appearance once again validates concerns voiced by what the media called “conspiracy theorists” throughout her failed campaign that Hillary was in ill health following a number of falls, stumbles and other bizarre behavior.

“Coming here tonight wasn’t easy,” commented Clinton during her speech.

Yes, Hillary, it must have been difficult to drag yourself out of your sick bed.
Quote:A national recall went out Wednesday for the special “Madame President” issue of Newsweek that was prematurely shipped to stores and newsstands across the country.
At the same time, the publisher of the magazine will rush the “President Trump” version of the commemorative issue to press on Thursday — so it will get to stores next week.
“Like everybody else, we got it wrong,” said Tony Romando, CEO of Topix Media, the Newsweek partner which produces special issues under the popular brand.
Both a Clinton and a Trump commemorative issue were designed and laid out in advance, but Topix Media, believing late last week that Clinton was likely to win, shipped only the Clinton issue.

President-elect Trump has said that his administration will be focused on three very important words: Jobs, jobs, jobs.

He has outlined a bold agenda to achieve 4 percent economic growth in America, and much of that agenda involves undoing the Obama administration’s disastrous regulations that get in the way of job creation.

But job creation is only half the challenge. Americans must have the skills necessary to do the jobs that are created under this new, more dynamic economy.

Meeting this goal will also require undoing the harmful actions of the Obama administration, specifically the devastating impact his Department of Education is having on career education in America.

Career education is distinct from the four-year Bachelor of Arts and Science programs you might think of as higher education. Career education certificates and associate degrees typically take 1 or 2 years, respectively, and rather than providing a broad-based education, they are specifically tailored to prepare students for specific jobs.

The demand for these programs is growing. Since 2003, per the National Center for Education Statistics, the number of certificate degrees awarded has increased by 40.9 percent and the number of associates degrees awarded has increased by 50.8 percent. This is a much faster rate of increase than the growth in Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees of 33 percent.

Many of these programs are offered at community colleges, but private sector career schools play a vital role as well. In 2014, more than one-third of certificates and almost one-sixth of associate degrees in America were awarded by private sector career colleges.

In fact, these numbers understate how critical private sector schools are to certain industries.

Health care is a prime example. According to a recent analysis of Department of Education data by Career Education Colleges and Universities, 78 percent of vocational/practical nurses and nursing assistants, 74 percent of medical assistants, 43 percent of ultrasound technicians, and 39 percent of surgical technologists are educated at private sector colleges and universities.

The fields of computer networking, electrical and electronic engineering, heating and ventilation installation and airplane and auto repair also disproportionately rely on private sector career schools to provide workers with the skills necessary to fill critical jobs.

Disgracefully, despite the vital nature of private sector career education to the American economy, the Obama administration has launched an ideologically motivated assault on private sector schools.

Over the past four years, the Department of Education forced almost 900 private sector campuses into closure, throwing tens of thousands of students out on the street – many of them low-income adults, single parents and African-Americans and Latinos.

In just the past thirty days – in a final effort to cause as much damage to private sector schools before President-elect Trump takes office – the Obama Department of Education has revoked the accreditation status of ACICS – a national accreditor which certifies many private sector career schools in America, and deliberately done to immediately put almost over 700 schools in serious jeopardy.

Just as President-elect Trump has made it clear that he intends to undo many of the Obama administration’s disastrous regulations that hurt job creation, his administration should swiftly announce it will take steps to undo the damage President Obama has done to career education in America.

First, the Trump administration should announce that it will give ACICS 12 months to correct the deficiencies which the Obama administration used as an excuse to try and shut them down. This is a standard grace period that the Department of Education normally gives after notifying an accreditor that it is not meeting certain standards. The only reason ACICS was not given this same courtesy is because the Obama administration viewed them as a vehicle through which they could attack private sector schools.

In addition, the Trump administration should announce that it intends to make the disastrous Gainful Employment Rule open for review. This rule, which I have written about before, removes programs from eligibility for federally backed student loans if the earnings of its graduates do not meet an arbitrary debt/earnings threshold in three years.

As predicted by many, the rule is hurting students rather than helping them. For instance, students in lower wage states are having their opportunities for career advancement eliminated simply due to differences in the cost of living. The rule also doesn’t appreciate that many fields – such as the culinary arts and design programs – require a period of apprenticeship, which means that graduates will not necessarily realize the real value of their degrees in just three years.

The Trump administration should also announce that two rules which have not yet gone into effect – the Borrower Defense to Repayment (projected to cost over $16 billion over ten years) and the State Authorization Rule – will be immediately withdrawn. Instead, Congress and the Trump administration should work together to craft better solutions when they reauthorize the Higher Education Act later this year.

There is clear precedent for these actions provided by none other than President Obama himself.

In 2009, his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel sent directives to all departments and agencies instructing them not only to withdraw all rules which were not yet implemented, but also to act to stop “rules which raise substantial questions of law or policy.” The biased rulemaking and regulatory enforcement of the Department of Education against private sector schools certainly rises to this standard.

President-elect Trump can show that he is indeed focused on jobs and send a signal now that the assault on career education will come to an end in his administration. Only then will Americans have access to the vital skills education they need to get good jobs in the 21st century.

Quote:MILO: President Trump, Here’s Why You Must Cut Federal Funding From UC Berkeley

[Image: my-640x480.png]
Milo 9 Feb 2017

In 1969, Governor Ronald Reagan of California was met with a problem that will sound familiar to those who were following my college tour last week: batshit crazy leftists rioting at UC Berkeley.

Reagan’s answer was to send in the National Guard, armed with buckshot and batons. Contrast this with Berkeley’s more recent approach, which was to give professor and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich a platform to spew a hysterical conspiracy theory in which Breitbart and I hired domestic terrorists to beat up my own fans and the residents of Berkeley and smash up Bank of America ATMs, Starbucks and trashcans.

But back to Reagan. He then gave a news conference, where, in Daddyesque fashion, he slapped down members of the media for encouraging the lawlessness.

The good news for President Trump and others interested in maintaining law and order in the face of leftist anarchy is that police crowd-control has advanced since the 1960s, and there is no need to send in the National Guard with shotguns, as Reagan did, which ended up killing one student. In the twenty-first century, pepper spray and foam cannons can accomplish the same job without fatalities.

And there’s even better news. There’s a way to defeat protests without buckshot, foam cannons, or pepper spray. A way to beat them before they even begin. It’s simple: defund UC Berkeley, and any other campus that encourages the mad, radical politics that is now causing violence on America’s streets on a daily basis.

The Department of Education largely controls the purse-strings of American colleges. At UC Berkeley last year, federal funding came to $370 million — more than half the university’s budget. Colleges fear the withdrawal of federal funds so much that when the Obama administration merely hinted at doing so in 2011 over the largely fabricated “campus rape epidemic,” it led to one of the greatest outbreaks of panic and miscarriages of justice in American history, as colleges set up kangaroo courts which frequently expelled students for sexual assault based on threadbare evidence.

The left are well aware of the existential threat they face. That’s why it’s Betsy DeVos — and not, say, Jeff Sessions — who is facing the toughest confirmation hearing. Jeff Sessions is important, of course, and will no doubt do extraordinary work in foiling the mad globalist dream of open borders, but it’s what Trump might do in education that really strikes terror into the hearts of the left.

Higher education is their ideological breeding ground; the mad leftist displays that you see in Hollywood and Silicon Valley start on college campuses. Sessions is a problem for the left on a number of fronts, notably law and order and immigration. But if DeVos is bold and aggressive enough, she could tear out the beating heart of leftist power — college ideological indoctrination. If colleges were effectively de-radicalized by DeVos, the left would take generations to recover.

At this point, some libertarians — like the American party’s cretinous chairman — will be clutching their pearls at the thought of using the federal government to influence colleges. Once again (and this is why the right and why libertarians so often lose) they fail to grasp the cultural libertarian argument — libertarian ideals will come to nothing in a culture that doesn’t respect liberty.

This is what the ‘do what you want, just leave me in peace to mine bitcoin and smoke weed’ faction of libertarianism — I.e., most libertarians — don’t understand. A similar argument obtains when talking about protecting the first amendment from sources of hostility to free speech, such as Islam, feminism and most of the media.

And where are cultural values incubated? Colleges, of course! As long as campuses are churning out students who hate free speech and free markets, what hope is there for libertarian policy priorities? If libertarians want to live in a free society, they’d better get ready to tread on their opponents.

At my UC Berkeley show last week, anti-fascists set college property on fire, smashed up bank windows and ATMs, jumped on people’s cars, and looted downtown stores, including the much-beloved liberal Starbucks.

They also assaulted dozens of my fans, who were falsely accused of being “Nazis.”

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that left-wing rioters caused around $600,000 in damages that night, with the riot starting at the college before spreading to downtown Berkeley. $600,000. That’s an awful lot of money for a communist tantrum.

The day after, my tour bus was tracked and my hotel location was leaked online. Left-wing Berkeley activists took out the remainder of their frustration on the bus, which was vandalized with spray paint.

Following the chaos, only one suspect was arrested, and celebrities, the mainstream media, the Mayor of Berkeley, and UC Berkeley administrators blamed the damage on me– a homosexual conservative who was unable to deliver a speech because students, brainwashed by their Marxist professors, decided to set their campus on fire.

For decades, the university campus has been a hotbed of dogma, brainwashing generation after generation in the most fashionable and foolhardy leftist ideas of the day. From professors offering extra credit to attend anti-Trump rallies to courses on “The Problem of Whiteness,” leftists on campus are teaching younger generations how to hate. Is it any wonder that they then go around smashing windows and punching people in the face? And if that isn’t bad enough, these thugs are absolutely terrible at identifying their ideological enemies — according to the account of Malini Ramaiyer in the New York Times, one person called a “Nazi” and assaulted was a Syrian Muslim student. Oops! Who could have predicted training young people to attack instead of argue could turn out badly?

And by the way, if you’re a NYT or Buzzfeed or CNN journalist ‎reading this, you’re to blame too, for creating an environment in which it’s okay to call conservatives Nazis and white supremacists. What did you think was going to happen?

The current atmosphere is also terrible for college students themselves. They’re paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend what are effectively progressive madrasas, turning them into little more than brainwashed street fighters. Today, a gender studies graduate seems more likely to end up in jail for destruction of property than in a stable job. Perhaps that is part of the plan — striking fear into the patriarchy one load of prison laundry at a time.

It can end, and it must end, or America will face eight years of violence on its streets, and who knows what state the country will be in after that? all because public universities refuse to honor their first amendment responsibilities.

It starts with Berkeley. President Daddy, tear down their funding.
Tell the shitheads at Berkeley their accreditation is gone if they can't protect student physical well being and free speech.  Sounds simple and reasonable.
I am not sure Trump will do anything about it. He has other concerns. Education seems to be very low on the agenda these days.
