Putin's Big Lie On Ukraine (If It Weren't So Serious It Would Be Funny)

by Paul R. Gregoryvia Forbes.com
Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Nationalists were among the bravest of the Maidan demonstrators, but they constituted a small minority. The grim list of the Maidan victims shows a grand total of eight deaths from the two right-wing parties. The others were students, factory workers, and otherwise ordinary people, some from the East, demonstrating out of conscience. As to the upcoming presidential elections, the latest polls show ex-heavyweight boxing champion, Vitaly Klitshko, in the lead with the two right-wing candidates polling collectively less than five percent – scant evidence of an impending skin-head Nazi takeover.If Putin is intent on saving Europe from right-wing extremism, he is advised to invade Greece (Golden Dawn), France (National Front), Netherlands (Wilder’s Freedom Party), or Hungary (Jobbik) – all of which have double the popular support of Ukraine’s far right. Maybe such invasions would actually wake up the somnambulant Europeans..

Common Core Woes Lead to New 'Dumbed-Down' SAT

with Ze’ev Wurmanvia Breitbart.com
Monday, March 10, 2014

It is no accident that the so-called “architect” of the Common Core standards is now president of the College Board. Barack Obama’s plan to “fundamentally transform” education into the latest social justice iteration has hit a road block, and David Coleman has come to save the day with a newer, “dumbed-down” SAT, so easy that almost anybody can get into college.

What the Best Governors Look Like

with Hoover Institutionvia FlashReport
Monday, March 10, 2014

Suppose you pick up your typical California newspaper and see headlines like, “State Unemployment Far Below the National Average” and “State Running Healthy Surplus; Gov. to Return Money to Taxpayers.” You just might find yourself paraphrasing Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, “Sutter Brown, I’ve got a feeling were not in California anymore.” (For those not acquainted with Sutter Brown, he is California’s charming First Dog, who sometimes joins Governor Brown at press conferences.) No, we certainly would not be in California where the unemployment rate is far above the national average and, although we are running a modest surplus, the only plans coming from Sacramento are for more government spending paid for by yet higher taxes. Californians are telling pollsters they are not feeling either secure or confident. Two surveys taken late last year by the Hoover Golden State Poll found twice as many Californians reported being worse-off financially [...]
