Senator Warren Disparages Betsy DeVos in Education Hearings, Refuses to Shake Hands

Senate Democrats and the NEA Teachers’ Union are doing their best to prevent school choice advocate Betsy DeVos from becoming Education Secretary.

NY Times: In the Name of “Humanity” We Must Violently Prevent “Fascist” Inauguration

The New York Times, once a newspaper, has printed a full-page ad from the Revolutionary Communist Party calling (in so many words) for the overthrow of the government: “Our only recourse now is to act together outside normal channels.
