Are abortionists manipulating Mizzou’s black athletes?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

A few Mizzou football players announced they’re boycotting all sports activities until University of Missouri system president Tim Wolfe quits or is fired. Considering the football team’s dismal performance, the cynic in me wonders if sitting out might help the players’ chances of getting an NFL draft.

The players and other African-American students at Mizzou believe they are victims of “systematic oppression” and they want Tim Wolfe to fix it simply by resigning.

I cannot find any specific recommendations for Mr. Wolfe to consider other than resignation. Instead it seems he’s challenged to simply “do more” without limit. Presumably, banishing all white students and professors from the University of Missouri system would not be enough.

I suspect, however, that restoring Planned Parenthood’s privileges on campus would be quell the unrest.

In October, the University of Missouri Board of Curators held an emergency meeting to discuss personnel issues. The four-hour meeting took place shortly after Mizzou broke ties with Planned Parenthood in the aftermath of a series of damning videos that showed Planned Parenthood hawking body parts of aborted babies.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if Mizzou’s black athletes are being duped by the heirs of Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood, in part, to wipe the world clean of black people?

Margaret Sanger was a strong proponent of eugenics. Via The Public Papers of Margaret Sanger at New York University, Sanger wrote in 1921:

Today Eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems. The most intransigent and daring teachers and scientists have lent their support to this great biological interpretation of the human race. The [first world] war has emphasized its necessity.

She was also a master manipulator who carefully said, more or less, “we must ask the inferior races to abolish themselves.” But she held out the potential need for superior races to do the job. Again, from her 1921 article on eugenics:

Birth Control is not advanced as a panacea by which past and present evils of dysgenic breeding can be magically eliminated. Possibly drastic and Spartan methods may be forced upon society if it continues complacently to encourage the chance and chaotic breeding that has resulted from our stupidly cruel sentimentalism.

What is eugenics? Eugenics is a pseudoscience meant to cleanse genetic malfunction, eliminating racial, political, and social problems throughout the world. You know, like Hitler tried to do.

In an America demographically reeling from immigration upheaval and torn by post-Reconstruction chaos, race conflict was everywhere in the early twentieth century. Elitists, utopians and so-called “progressives” fused their smoldering race fears and class bias with their desire to make a better world. They reinvented Galton’s eugenics into a repressive and racist ideology. The intent: populate the earth with vastly more of their own socio-economic and biological kind–and less or none of everyone else.

But eugenics never took hold in America, right?


In 1904, the Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples. From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated in the legislatures of America, as well as the nation’s social service agencies and associations.

The Harriman railroad fortune paid local charities, such as the New York Bureau of Industries and Immigration, to seek out Jewish, Italian and other immigrants in New York and other crowded cities and subject them to deportation, trumped up confinement or forced sterilization.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.

But, but, but . . . but Hitler took eugenics in a direction never intended by its American sponsors, right? Surely the Yanks were talking about voluntary birth control to weed out genetic problems.

Guess again:

Eighteen solutions were explored in a Carnegie-supported 1911 “Preliminary Report of the Committee of the Eugenic Section of the American Breeder’s Association to Study and to Report on the Best Practical Means for Cutting Off the Defective Germ-Plasm in the Human Population.” Point eight was euthanasia.

The most commonly suggested method of eugenicide in America was a “lethal chamber” or public locally operated gas chambers. In 1918, Popenoe, the Army venereal disease specialist during World War I, co-wrote the widely used textbook, Applied Eugenics, which argued, “From an historical point of view, the first method which presents itself is execution… Its value in keeping up the standard of the race should not be underestimated.” Applied Eugenics also devoted a chapter to “Lethal Selection,” which operated “through the destruction of the individual by some adverse feature of the environment, such as excessive cold, or bacteria, or by bodily deficiency.”

In fairness, the final report opposed both abortion and extermination:

Any individual once born should, in the opinion of the committee, be given every opportunity and aid for developing into a decent adulthood of maxi- mum usefulness and happiness. Preventing the procreation of defectives rather than destroying them before birth, or in infancy, or in the later periods of life, must be the aim of modern eugenics.

Still, as Margaret Sanger’s own words indicate, eugenicists left the door open to more “Spartan” measures if society failed to aggressively implement its recommendations, especially segregation and forced sterilization.

While I could be wrong, I suspect that the racial unrest at Mizzou is being fomented by the Planned Parenthood brownshirts. Perhaps Mr. Wolfe’s next investigation should seek to uncover manipulation of African-American students by supporters of Planned Parenthood.

Schools Don’t Need More Technology–They Need Less

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I was on my high school’s board of education for a year. It was quite an honor, honestly, but I screwed it up.

At the time, I was a software architect. They put me on the board as the technology guy. I was supposed to make the case for more funding for smart boards and other tech stuff.

But I said kids really don’t need more technology in school. Technology, I said, was like sex education: they’ll get more than they can handle on the streets or watching TV. What they need is a better understanding of how they can use it.

I was thrilled to read that Eric Greitens agrees with me. Maybe not on the sex education part, but on the technology.

This is from Eric’s new book, Resilience:

Today we spend huge effort and millions of dollars to bring more technology into the classroom, when the great majority of students in the great majority of circumstances can learn almost all of what they need to know with a supportive family, a pencil, some paper, good books, and a great teacher. The schools that produced Shakespeare and Jefferson and Darwin had some writing materials, some printed books— and that was it.

Greitens, Eric (2015-03-10). Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life (Kindle Locations 1551-1554). Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Kindle Edition.

The more I learn about Eric Greitens, the better I like him. He understands that a good home and good teachers are more important to education than computers and whiteboards that record what’s written on them. If what’s written on the board is wrong or stupid, smart boards record errors and stupidity. That helps no one.

Here’s more from Resilience on this point:

Imagine you’re a fourteen- or fifteen-year-old school kid at Radley Hall in England in 1837. Here are some of the questions on your winter exam:

  • Why is not virtue either παθος or δυναμις?

  • Give Aristotle’s reasons (4) why true self-love cannot exist in vicious men.

  • Find the length of an arc whose chord is 18, and the chord of half the arc 10 ⅓.

  • Give the characters of Alfred the Great, Cardinal Wolsey, Henry the Eighth, and Queen Elizabeth.

Greitens, Eric (2015-03-10). Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life (Kindle Locations 1554-1558). Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Kindle Edition.

I think I can handle the last question, but only superficially. So, are we moderns really smarter than 19th century Englishmen?

Schools don’t need more technology. They don’t need money to buy smart boards. They need the courage to empower their teachers to teach. We train teachers, then tell them to simply follow Pearson’s marketing education guide. That’s not teaching; it’s robotics.

Maybe Eric Greitens gets it because his mom was a special education teacher, like my wife. 🙂

Rockwood School Board Quid Pro Quo?

Reading Time: 1 minutes

From the “see, I told ya so” file . . .

Rockwood NEA President Suzanne Dotta worked hard to influence the recent school board election. The candidates Ms. Dotta pushed won.

The new board hired Ms. Dotta as Director of Professional Learning within 72 hours of the election.

I expect Ms. Dotta to teach Rockwood’s professionals how to game the system for personal gain at taxpayer expense.

If you’d like to question this apparent quid pro quo, the next Rockwood Board meeting is April 24.  Meetings are held at Crestview Middle School, located at 16025 Clayton Road in Ellisville.  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.

While other candidates focus on more money for the system, Eileen focuses on using Rockwood’s (embarrassingly) ample resources better.

Here’s what you need to ask youself:

  1. Do you plan to fulfill your duty to vote on April 8?
  2. What time of day do you plan to vote?

  3. Where will be and what will you be doing immediately before you go to vote?

See you at the polls on April 8 to vote for Eileen Tyrrell.

1.2 Million Reasons to Vote for Eileen Tyrrell on April 8

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Do you live in Rockwood School District?

I do. My kids all went to Rockwood schools. My wife taught in a Rockwood school for three years.

The teachers in Rockwood tend to think a lot like the people who live here. They’re not a bunch of wacked-out lefties. Not most of them.

Still, that good education has come with HUGE price tag. Rockwood is one of the most expensive districts in Missouri. Property taxes for residents are almost double the average car payment.

And Rockwood’s board and administrators have a long, ugly history of scandal, corruption, and waste. The Missouri Auditor and the Missouri Ethics Commission practically have field offices at Rockwood’s headquarters.

For me, that last bullet is the root of all Rockwood’s evil. School board members get arrogant and secretive. The Rockwood Board does the bidding of the NEA instead of representing the taxpayers who build and maintain the schools. They use your tax dollars to extort more of your tax dollars. They want it all.

That’s why Rockwood needs a real champion of education and the people.

If not for Eilleen Tyrrell, that crooked construction company would still be pocketing millions of your tax dollars illegally. Eilleen Tyrrell and Lisa Hunt Earls formed Rockwood Stakeholders for Real Solutions in 2011. Eilleen wanted to give taxpayers a voice.

Eileen Tyrrell gave you a voice, and that voice made your schools better. But it wasn’t easy. RSRS continues to battle the NEA-appointed Board of Education at every turn.

The union bosses and their hand-picked BOE think your money is their play toy. And they don’t like citizen activists like Eileen protected your pockets.

Last year, Eileen made a difficult decision. As one of the boldest, most tenacious ambassadors of accountability in education, Eileen decided she needed to represent you on the inside.

I support and Eileen Tyrrell for Rockwood School Board on April 8th–and every other day of the year.

I meet a lot of people through St. Louis Tea Party activities. Many of those people come out and do a lot of hard work. But that work takes a toll. Most cannot sustain their effort over a long period.

Eileen Tyrrell never gives up. Eileen has fought the good fight–and won–more than anyone I’ve met in the 5 years that the Tea Party has been around.

Now, the NEA is strong-arming teachers to fight Eileen. Some of those union-blinded teachers will put pressure on you and on your kids to stand by the old guard and their secretive, expensive, corrupt ways.

One Rockwood teacher wrote an impassioned Facebook post encouraging you to vote the way her union bosses tell you to vote.

But you’re not like that. You chose to live in Rockwood because you know that hard, honest work wins out. You don’t take orders from union bosses, and you don’t let elected officials secretly divvy out your tax dollars to their friends.

I am confident that you will join me in supporting and electing Eileen Tyrrell on April 8th.

If you believe in government accountability and good schools you will click this link, send Eileen a few dollars to fight the NEA’s millions, and ask just 2 other people to vote for Eileen on April 8th. That’s the only election you need to care about.

Vote for Eileen Tyrrell on April 8th in Rockwood School District.



And the inspiring truth about teachers

Reading Time: 1 minutes


She’s the daughter every parent hopes for. Diligent. Dedicated. Kind to a fault. Smart. Hard working. Loyal. Prettier than she knows.

She gets it from her mother.

She’s about to graduate from college and become a teacher.

Like her mom.

She doesn’t need a union.

She is a union.

With her mom.

And a million others.

They care. And try. And teach. Or try.

Your kid would be blessed to walk into Sam’s classroom one day.

Or her mom’s.

But strong unions won’t let her teach and care the way God and her mom prepared her to teach and care. The union doesn’t care. Except for itself.

Teachers’ unions are my nemesis

Samantha is a listener.

Sam’s mother is my wife.


Rockwood School District Hasn't Learned

The Devastating Truth About Teachers’ Unions

Reading Time: 1 minutes

The stronger the union the weaker the learnin’.  According to Harvard Business Review, students learn less in states with stronger teachers’ unions.

A 1-standard-deviation rise in teachers’ union dues per teacher is associated with a 4% fall in student proficiency rates, according to a study of 721 U.S. school districts in 42 states by Johnathan Lott of the University of Chicago Law School and Lawrence W. Kenny of the University of Florida.

Dues support union lobbying, which typically pushes for policies such as blocking merit pay and limiting the Teach for America program. Consequently, student proficiency is lower in states with stronger teacher unions, the researchers say.

Get that? Unions use their money to block proven education reforms. Teachers’ unions do not exist to make education better; they exist to make the union more powerful.

Your kids are just the ammunition they use.

If You Vote in Kirkwood School District, Listen Up

Reading Time: 1 minutes

In the past 15 years, Kirkwood School Districts operation costs have skyrocketed almost 100 percent. But the people paying the taxes for that district have seen a cost of living increase of only 44 percent.


Obviously, at some point, the system will crash. Unless you do something now.

On April 2, you can elect two fiscally responsible members to the board of education.


Eric Peterson and Amy Russell


Here’s what you should do:

1.  Visit Kirkwood Pioneers for Educational Progress to learn all about the issues that threaten your district’s financial future and the opportunities to make the district even stronger.

2.  Get to know Eric Peterson and Amy Russell.

3.  Tell your friends you’re voting on April 2 for fiscal responsibility and better schools.

That’s it.

Unless you want to be a real High Information Voter. Then you will want to read K-PEP’s Executive Summary. You’ll be the real education expert in your conversation groups, and your opinion will carry a lot of weight with other voters.

Just because you don’t have children in school right now doesn’t mean you’re free of the duty to be informed and to vote.

Good school districts raise property values and improves lives. Fiscally irresponsible districts threaten the whole community.

Don’t leave this duty up to anyone else. Take responsibility for your community by getting informed and voting.
