2 Texas principals arrested for failing to report sexual abuse allegations

Two elementary school principals at a Texas school district were arrested within a week of each other for failing to report cases of sexual abuse to law enforcement.

Cindy Sue Underwood, 35, the principal of Kate Haynes Northwest Academy was booked into the Wichita County jail on Monday and released soon after.

Kory Fancher Dorman, 45, the principal of Crocket Elementary school was arrested last week.

Both educators were charged with failing to report separate and unrelated incidents of sexual abuse concerning students in their care.

Underwood was arrested for failing to tell police a school iPad was used by three 6-year-old boys to take photos as they engaged in various sexual acts in a classroom.

According to the arrest warrant, the photos were taken on Oct. 3 and were reportedly found on Oct. 25 by the students’ homeroom teacher.

The teacher informed Underwood of the findings. She told the parents, but did not alert law enforcement.

The children were sent home, which detectives said put others at risk.

Dorman was arrested Jan. 31 for allegedly not reporting a sexual assault of a first grader at her school.

According to the arrest warrant, Dorman was notified by three grandparents in mid-December that their 7-year-old grandson was sexually assaulted by a fellow 6-year-old student while in a bathroom at Crockett elementary school.  It’s unclear when the assault occurred.

Dorman told authorities that she delegated the responsibility of investigating the allegations to the school counselor. She did not report the allegations to law enforcement and was unaware that anyone had reported the incident after they returned from the holidays about 20 days later.

Both Underwood and Dorman were put on administrative leave by Wichita Falls ISD district officials on Friday.

The Texas Family Code states that teachers are mandatory reporters.

Uranium One informant says Moscow paid millions in bid to influence Clinton

An FBI informant involved in the controversial Uranium One deal has told congressional committees that Moscow paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration.

The Hill first reported late Wednesday that informant Douglas Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors by committee staff.

In the statement, obtained by Fox News, Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

 

Uranium One is a Canadian mining company whose sale to a Russian firm was approved in 2010. The U.S. government was involved because the sale gave the Russians control of part of the U.S. uranium supply. The transaction has faced renewed scrutiny after The Hill reported last year that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S., related to a subsidiary of the same Russian firm.

Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill want to know how the deal was approved the following year by an inter-agency committee.

Democrat Lawmakers Push Bill to Make Tide Pod Look ‘Less Appetizing’

What has our country come to?

New York City Democrats State Sen. Brad Holyman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas introduced legislation Tuesday in Albany that would prohibit manufacturers from making detergent pods that look like candy or other edible items according to the Associated Press.

The bills, proposed in the New York State Assembly and Senate, would require detergent packets to be one color, have packaging that is not see-through, and carry warnings about the risk of poisoning if pods are ingested.

“Bright colored detergent pods look like candy, they look like toys,” said Simotas, who introduced the bill in the Assembly.

Simotas and Holyman say that the bright-colored packaging, appealing smell, and squishy texture of the pods can tempt children or adults with dementia into thinking the packets are edible. The lawmakers argue that state regulation prohibiting manufacturers from packaging the pods a certain way could reduce the risk of poisonings.

“They might as well say bite me on them, because that is what they offer,” Holyman, the bill’s sponsor in the Senate, said.

Some state legislators are not on board with the proposal, arguing that the state should be working on more pressing matters.

“The key is you just shouldn’t eat it,” said Assemblyman Karl Brabenec, a Republican. “I mean any laundry detergent, whether it’s brown, red, green, whatever the case might be. It’s just ridiculous.”

The “Tide Pods Challenge” became an Internet viral sensation, mostly among teenagers, after several people began posting videos of themselves ingesting small, colorful laundry detergent pods. The trend has resulted in multiple hospitalizations for poisoning.

Companies have started initiatives that would lessen the number of poisonings resulting from the dangerous viral trend.

Proctor and Gamble, Tide’s parent company, launched an effort to warn people of the dangers of ingesting Tide Pods.

YouTube announced that it would delete any Tide Pod videos posted on its site that encourage teenagers to ingest poisonous detergent.

Pelosi Wastes 8 HOURS and $1.2 million in Filibuster on Pathway to Citizenship for Illegals

Clad in four-inch heels, Pelosi spoke for eight hours and seven minutes and was given a standing ovation by her Democratic colleagues when she yielded the floor at 6:11 p.m.

In her remarks, Pelosi announced that she and many fellow House Democrats would oppose the package unless House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., promised to allow a vote on a plan to shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally.

“Let Congress work its will,” said Pelosi, who noted that Senate Republicans have slated a debate on the politically freighted subject starting next week. “What are you afraid of?”

According to the House historian’s office, Pelosi appeared to have set a record for the longest continuous speech in the chamber’s history. The previous record, of five hours and 15 minutes, was set by Rep. Champ Clark, D-Mo., in 1909.

Pelosi’s speech would not have come close to the length of the 10 longest filibusters in Senate history. The most recent notable filibuster came in April 2017, when Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., spoke for 15 hours and 28 minutes in opposition to the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

In 2013, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, delivered the longest filibuster in 60 years when he spoke for 21 hours and 18 minutes against a bill to end the 2013 government shutdown in an effort to defund ObamaCare.

Pelosi’s speech was not considered a filibuster, which can take place only in the Senate. However, House leaders are often granted extra time to speak on the floor, a privilege known as the “magic minute.” For example, then-Minority Leader John Boehner spoke for more than an hour against a cap-and-trade bill that passed the House in 2009.

President Trump moved to end former President Barack Obama’s illegal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program last year, giving Congress a March 5 deadline to pass legislation to replace it. However, a federal judge has indefinitely blocked Trump from terminating the program’s protections, blunting the deadline’s immediate impact.

“You see, these people are being deported,” Pelosi said at one point, taking out a tissue. “We can do something today to at least make whole the children.”

Her speech drew little reaction from Republicans, except for a tweet from the Republican Congressional Congressional Committee.

The court system also wasted 1.2 million dollars while waiting for Ms. Pelosi to finish. Government spending is through the roof. Who does she think she is?

High school cancels musical after white student lands lead role

Social equity activists at a New York secondary school effectively close down a generation of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” after a white understudy handled a lead part.

Dissents of the creation started when an African-American understudy quit Ithaca High School’s melodic generation because of the part of Esmeralda being given to a white schoolmate.

“It demonstrates to you that venue wasn’t made for you,” the understudy told the Ithaca Journal. “What’s more, it demonstrates to you that, in the event that you can’t get the parts that are composed for you, what parts would you say you will get?”

Understudy activists at that point joined together under the umbrella of Students United Ithaca and composed a letter that incorporated a rundown of requests, saying that, while the young woman give a role as Esmeralda was “a stellar on-screen character, vocalist, and artist” any generation would be “fortunate to have,” she couldn’t be thrown in this part since she is the “encapsulation of whiteness.”

“Best case scenario, this is social allotment,” the understudy aggregate composed, affirming racial predisposition inside the Performing Arts Program at IHS, and “at the very least, it is whitewashing, a bigot throwing practice which has its foundations in minstrelsy.”

While the understudy activists requested “dark colored and dark female understudies” be considered for the part, the character being referred to is half Roma, half French, as per the novel by Victor Hugo. SUI focused on “the book and the melodic ought not be conflated” in light of the fact that the melodic is just “enlivened” by Hugo’s composition.

The gathering calls attention to that the Musical Theater International generation control records her part as a “Romani lady” who is “a pariah racially and socially.”

The Ithaca City School District declared it drop the melodic trying to be “more comprehensive and socially responsive” in their “endeavors to dispose of institutional inclinations.”

The secondary school is anticipating putting on “another cooperative venture” rather, including that “this isn’t about a specific employee or ICSD representative.”

Trump CRUSHES UK Leaders By Pointing to Universal Health Care Failure

President Trump has CRUSHED U.K. leaders by pointing to the failures in their universal health care systems. It has slashed services and led to claims that patients are dying in corridors and ambulances.

This is the result of socialized medicine.

Trump commented Monday on a weekend march in London calling for more funding for the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) by describing the NHS as “going broke” and criticizing Democrats for wanting to imitate the system.

The march was a broadly pro-NHS march that criticized the ruling Conservative government for not providing enough funding for the system. However, signs at the march calling for the NHS to be “saved” also included statements declaring the NHS “broken.”

The government has noted it’s increased funding by billions every year, but critics say it is not enough in what has been a decades-long war over NHS funding.

Those calls have become more urgent in recent weeks as the NHS has been hit by a “winter crisis” which saw tens of thousands of non-urgent surgeries canceled across England for more than a month, and widespread reports of hospitals simply unable to cope.

Chelsea Clinton Calls Barron Trump “A Creepy Psycho”

Chelsea Clinton is in some hot water today.

This weekend, Clinton took to social media to speak foully about our Commander-in-Chief’s youngest son, Barron Trump.

Clinton, the former first child, went against everything that is moral and classy by decrying Barron’s choice of outfit to a recent press gathering.

Barron was wearing a child’s t-shirt that features prominently the characters from a popular video game called “Minecraft”.

Well Clinton, an ardent defender of leftist environmentalism, had something to say about it.

“Barron isn’t normal,” Clinton said. “I mean look at him. You are supposed to wear a suit and tie to these events. You are representing the American people. I think he looks, and acts, like a creepy psycho.”

Nevermind that Clinton could be seen wearing similar clothes when she was Barron’s age. Maybe it’s her cultural elitism and liberal virtue signalling that is keeping her from seeing the truth: she and her family are out of touch with the average American.

God Bless Barron Trump.

Breaking: A SECOND Memo Just Emerged, and Look Who Was Found Feeding the Info to Steele

Big bombshell breaking. It was bad enough that the DNC and the Clinton campaign were paying Christopher Steele through Fusion GPS to create dirt on their political opponent Donald Trump and that that dossier was then given to the FBI to use against him. But now it is revealed in a new document just released that the Clinton campaign was also contemporaneously feeding information to Steele. And that some of the information may also have been coming from the Obama State Department.

The new document just released is from the Senate Judiciary Committee. While heavily redacted, the document was written by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) refers Steele for criminal investigation. In the referral, it lays out that there was some coordination between the Clinton team and the Obama administration in spreading damaging information about candidate Trump.

According to the referral, Steele wrote the additional memo based on anti-Trump information that originated with a foreign source. In a convoluted scheme outlined in the referral, the foreign source gave the information to an unnamed associate of Hillary and Bill Clinton, who then gave the information to an unnamed official in the Obama State Department, who then gave the information to Steele. Steele wrote a report based on the information, but the redacted version of the referral does not say what Steele did with the report after that.

Published accounts in the Guardian and the Washington Post have indicated that Clinton associate Cody Shearer was in contact with Steele about anti-Trump research, and Obama State Department official Jonathan Winer was a connection between Steele and the State Department during the 2016 campaign.

The referral notes:

“It is troubling enough the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele’s allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility.”

As Katie Bo Williams notes, yes, it’s particularly interesting given Rep. Devin Nunes indicated that a second phase of the investigation is coming involving the State Department. This likely factors into it.

The referral was originally classified but was released today, with heavy redactions. Some of what was redacted was Steele’s contacts with the media to help spread his information.

For example, a press release accompanying the referral said the referral “contains verbatim quotes from the [Carter Page surveillance] application that are not included in the [House Intelligence Committee] memo. Specifically, the referral quotes the application’s descriptions of Steele’s statements to the FBI about his contacts with the media.” Lest anyone get too excited, the press release went on to say that the quotes “remain redacted” in the version of the referral released Monday.

Also redacted is information related to the key allegation of the Grassley-Graham referral: that Steele was untruthful with the FBI and Justice Department over the issue of his many contacts with the press. If Steele was acting as a trusted source for the FBI on the highly confidential Trump-Russia investigation, it would have been improper for him to share his information with the press at the same time.

Some of what is redacted is the information about how the FBI used Steele’s press contacts in applying for the FISA warrants, according to Byron York of the Washington Examiner.
