CNN has given a national platform to a man that attempted to attack a Presidential candidate…
This would NEVER happen if Barack Obama was rushed. CNN is giving people incentives to do this and this WILL escalate the issue.
When Ja’Mal Green, a prominent black activist and Bernie Sanders supporter in Chicago, saw that Donald Trump was coming to the University of Illinois-Chicago, he knew what he had to do.
“Everyone, get your tickets to this. We’re all going in!!!! #SHUTITDOWN,” he posted on Facebook last week.
Little did he know, they actually would shut it down.
On Friday night, hundreds of protesters invaded Trump’s rally while thousands more marched outside, leading the GOP presidential candidate to abruptly cancel the event due to safety concerns. The night spun out from there, as angry Trump fans clashed with protesters, who saw the shutdown as a victory.
Protesters interrupt virtually every Trump speech. But what made Chicago different were its scale and the organization behind the effort. Hundreds of young people, mostly minorities, poured in from across the city, taking over whole sections of the arena and bracing for trouble.
And as the repeated chants of “Ber-nie” demonstrated, it was largely organized by supporters of Sanders, the Democratic presidential candidate who has struggled to win over black voters but whose revolutionary streak has excited radicals of all racial demographics.
“Remember the #TrumpRally wasn’t just luck. It took organizers from dozens of organizations and thousands of people to pull off. Great work,” tweeted People for Bernie, a large unofficial pro-Sanders organization founded by veterans of the Occupy movement and other leftist activists.
Trump let them win.
This will never stop.
Even if (WHEN) Trump is out, this is going to continue.
Breitbart has to be taking money from Trump…
This thing is over if Trump is the nominee…
Marco Rubio has won the Republican presidential caucuses in Washington D.C.
It’s the third presidential contest victory for the Florida senator. Earlier this month, Rubio won the GOP caucuses in Minnesota and the party’s primary in Puerto Rico.
Rubio picked up 10 delegates with his Saturday caucus win in the nation’s capital. Runner-up John Kasich was just 50 votes behind Rubio, and the Ohio governor will get nine delegates.
None of the other candidates in the race won enough votes to earn any delegates.
Ted Cruz won most of the delegates at stake in Saturday’s Republican county conventions in Wyoming.
The Texas senator won nine of the 12 delegates that were up for grabs. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and billionaire businessman Donald Trump won one apiece. One delegate was uncommitted.
The Associated Press is not declaring a winner in Wyoming on Saturday because another 14 of the state’s delegates will be awarded at the party’s state convention on April 16.
Trump leads the overall race for delegates with 460. Cruz has 367, Rubio has 153 and John Kasich has 54.
It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
Trump up in Florida and Illinois…
Donald Trump is leading the Republican field in Florida and Illinois but is behind John Kasich in Ohio, according to a recent poll by NBC News, the Wall Street Journal and Marist.
In Florida, Trump leads Marco Rubio, who represents the Sunshine State in the U.S. Senate, 43 to 22 percent. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was the pick of 21 percent of likely Republican primary voters, followed by John Kasich at 9 percent. Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio are holding primaries March15. The day could be a huge delegate haul for winning candidates, with 99 GOP delegates available in Florida alone.
Unlike past primaries that awarded delegates proportionately, Florida, Missouri and Ohio are winner-take-all states.
In Illinois, Trump was the pick of 34 percent of likely GOP primary voters, followed by Cruz at 25 percent, Kasich at 21 percent and Rubio at 16 percent.
Trump’s dominance falters in Ohio, however, where Kasich, the state’s incumbent governor, has a 6 point lead over the businessman-turned –politician. The poll shows Kasich leading Trump 39 percent to 33 percent, followed by Cruz at 19 percent and Rubio at 6 percent.
A suicide car bomb attack targeted civilians near bus stops in the heart of Ankara, Turkey, killing at least 34 people, including two suspected bombers. Around 125 other people were wounded, 19 of them in serious condition. The explosion was in the capital’s transit hub in Kizilay close to Guven park. Live images from the scene showed burnt-out vehicles as ambulances rushed to the scene. Footage later appeared online showing the moment of the attack with people running away and sparks flying.
At least 14 civilians, two special forces and six assailants were killed when armed men attacked beachgoers and three hotels. Beachgoers were filmed screaming and running into nearby hotels for cover as up to four gunmen sprayed bullets indiscriminately while shouting “Allahu Akbar”. Witnesses described the attackers as African, armed with Kalashnikovs and grenade belts and dressed in casual clothes who shot at “anyone they could find” as they “calmly” walked along the packed beachfront of Grand Bassam, 40km east of the capital Abidjan at midday local time. Local media cited a hotel employee named JB Beugré as saying that the gunmen arrived by fishing boat and their attack lasted three hours.
Cops under attack…
A police officer died Sunday after he and another person were shot near a police station in a Maryland suburb of the nation’s capital.
Two suspects were being held in what authorities said was an “unprovoked attack” on police.
Police identified the slain officer as 28-year-old Jacai Colson, a four-year veteran of the Prince George’s County Police Department who was days shy of his birthday.
The police department said on Twitter that Colson “lost his life in defense of this community today. This was an unprovoked attack.” Authorities didn’t immediately elaborate on the tweet.
Prince George’s County Police had originally advised residents near the police station in Landover to stay inside because of an “active shooter” situation. After the second suspect was apprehended, they said on Twitter that they did not think any other suspects were at large.
The shooting occurred at about 4:30 p.m. at a community center next to the Landover station in the suburb of Prince George’s County, about 10 miles northeast of downtown Washington, D.C.
A riot involving about 100 inmates at Holman Correctional Facility and the stabbing of a prison officer five days earlier show that Alabama’s jam-packed prisons have reached a critical point, Gov. Robert Bentley said today.
“A volatile mix of overcrowding and understaffing have created an environment that is dangerous to both inmates as well as the corrections officers who serve our state,” Bentley said in a statement.
“Our state must take the necessary steps to address and solve this problem immediately. We must reduce overcrowding and provide facilities that are safer and more secure for both inmates and corrections officers.”
Alabama has about 24,000 inmates in prisons designed for about 13,000.
The PREP Act requires evaluations to be based on a minimum of 25% test scores and amaximum of 75% observations, student surveys, and ‘additional measures of performance correlated with impacts on student achievement results’ (aka, additional test scores, like benchmark tests). The real weight for test scores, reflected in an actual number (minimum 25%, and a number hidden in the ‘additional measures’) could actually be much higher. Each system will decide the weight of each item, which will make system comparisons impossible.
This Act also allows for the termination of a teacher who has had two consecutive poor evaluations, regardless of tenure status.
What all of this means is we have professionals’ careers hanging in the balance over these evaluations that are based on things that should never be used to measure them. VAM was intended to be used in production to aid in efficiency and to ensure a standardized product, and Standardized Testing was intended to be used to show weak areas that a student and teacher should focus on moving forward. I compare what this bill is proposing to using a ruler to measure a cup of sugar. Sure a ruler is a tool for measurement, but not that measurement.
