H.S. Teacher Confiscates Student’s Cellphone During Class. Then Something Sickening Happens.

After a New Jersey high school teacher confiscated a 16-year-old student’s cellphone during class Thursday, the student attacked the 62-year-old teacher and slammed him to the floor, police and school officials said.

The student, a 9th grader, was arrested on Friday and charged with third-degree aggravated assault, police said. A video of the attack at John F. Kennedy High School in Paterson was posted to YouTube. The student has been suspended.

David Cozart, the school’s principal of operations, said the physics teacher apparently took the student’s cellphone from a classmate.

In the clip, the student wrapped his arms around the teacher, who seemingly tried to continue instruction before the student slammed him into a desk.

Other students are heard reacting verbally to the altercation, but no one physically intervened — in fact, several move away. After the student wrestled the teacher to a corner and slammed him to the floor, a couple of students yelled for security to be called.

Kid Rock’s Response to Michael Moore and Seth Rogen Over ‘American Sniper’ Must Be Seen to Be Believed

Kid Rock — known for his ardent support of the U.S. military and less so for nuanced commentary — issued a blistering retort on his official website to filmmaker Michael Moore and actor Seth Rogen over their recent “American Sniper” remarks.

Moore tweeted derogatory comments about snipers on the weekend Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster was released, drawing widespread criticism; Rogen came after the movie more directly and suffered the same backlash.

Kid Rock, right on his website’s homepage, came at the pair with both barrels and paid tribute to late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

“F*** you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of s**t and your uncle would be ashamed of you. Seth Rogen, your uncle probably molested you. I hope both of you catch a fist to the face soon.

“God bless you Chris Kyle, Thank you for your service.”

Here’s how his message reads on his homepage:

Islamic State Terrorists Slaughter 13 Teen Boys

Islamic State Terrorists Slaughter 13 Teen Boys for Breaking One of Its Oppressive Religious Laws: Report

For 13 teenage boys in the Iraqi city of Mosul, watching the Asian Cup soccer match between Iraq and Jordan would reportedly cost them their lives.

Under the Islamic State’s barbaric ideology, the act of watching the game on television was anoffense punishable by death. The young boys were grabbed by terrorists and then publicly executed by a firing squad, according to the activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.

Before being shot to death by machine guns, the terrorists reportedly announced the boys’ “crime” of breaking religious laws by watching sports over a loud speaker.

The activist group added, “The bodies remained lying in the open and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by terrorist organisation.”

Mosul is currently controlled by Islamic State militants who impose their will on the people with brutal force.

Gold Breaks Above Its 6 Month Downtrend Line

(Gold Silver Worlds)

As reported by www.ChartAnalyst.expert in their last metals update “Gold Breaks Through Its Technical Trend Line,” there is a clear break out in gold and the miners (courtesy of StockCharts.com).

The Gold Tracking ETF GLD finally broke above a downtrend line today. The first chart shows that gold broke above the 6 month downtrend line. However, it is still trying to break above the red trend line which would mark a breakout above a basing area for GLD. On ChartAnalyst.expert, there is a technical view on the daily chart, but we prefer to take a look at the weekly chart. We can see it broke through support/resistance around 115. Now it has been able to base in this area and turn higher.

It looks really promising for the gold stocks here but we are still early in a trend breakout. Here is a look at the miners in Canada. That breakout is really nice but as XGD is right at the 200 DMA, a pause might give an excellent entry opportunity.

White House Ignores Question About Obama Absence

President Barack Obama did not attend Sunday’s massive march in Paris to honor the victims of last week’s terror attacks, and the White House is not explaining his absence.

Asked directly about Obama’s absence among dozens of other world leaders, a White House spokeswoman only addressed a question about Attorney General Eric Holder.

World leaders linked arms and marched together at a unity rally that numbered more than 3.7 million people. Among the attendees were Angela Merkel of Germany, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, King Abdallah of Jordan and the brother of the Emir of Qatar, marching with French President Francois Hollande. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas attended, walking feet away from each other. All told, some 50 world leaders attended.

TheBlaze asked the White House press office to comment on why Obama did not participate in the rally. In a follow up question, TheBlaze asked if Holder — who went to Paris for an anti-terrorism summit — is part of the march.

The White House spokesperson responded,”We’d refer you to DOJ for questions about the AG’s schedule,” in an email.

TheBlaze asked again about Obama’s absence. The White House did not immediately respond.

The New York Times reported at 1:53 p.m. that Holder had to return to Washington Sunday. The United States was represented in the march by Ambassador Jane Hartley. TheBlaze contacted the Justice Department, which did not immediately respond.

Obama cheers his ‘rescue’ of car industry … at closed plant!

obama-ford

NEW YORK – On a day in which the international news cycle was dominated by the Islamic terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, President Obama traveled to Wayne, Michigan, to deliver a pre-arranged speech celebrating his rescue of the U.S. auto industry.

Ironically, the Ford Assembly Plant that Obama visited is closed temporarily this week because of lack of demand for the small cars and hybrids the plant produces, with 2014 sales of the Ford Focus down 6 percent and the C-Max hybrid down 22 percent.

In his tour of the Ford plant, Obama sat for a minute in a red Mustang and then emerged to declare “this is an American car, right here, this Mustang. That’s beautiful.”

In his speech to an enthusiastic crowd at the assembly plant, Obama asserted America’s “resurgence is real – don’t let anybody tell you otherwise,” echoing his 2012 campaign mantra that “Osama Bin Laden is dead, but General Motors is alive and well.”

“Last year, 2014, was the strongest year for job growth since the 1990s,” Obama said. “We’ve now had a 57-month streak of private sector job creation. We’ve created nearly 11 million new jobs. That’s the longest stretch in our history of private sector, uninterrupted job creation.”

In a speech regarded as a warm-up for the economic-success narrative Obama is expected to tout during his upcoming State of the Union speech, he took credit for what he claimed is a strong and continuing recovery.

“Since 2010, we, America, have put more people back to work than Europe, Japan and every other advanced economy combined,” Obama claimed. “After a decade of decline, American manufacturing is in its best stretch of job growth since the 1990s. Here in Michigan, manufacturers have created more than 100,000 jobs, helping to cut your unemployment rate in half.”

Obama, in his speech, neglected to note Ford did not join GM and Chrysler in the bankruptcy proceedings his administration managed in 2009, though Ford did benefit from a $5.9 billion low-cost government loan used to overhaul its factories and to re-engineer more fuel-efficient technology.

Money, Gold, Liberty In 2015 And Beyond

(Gold Silver Worlds)

2014 was quite an eventful year for global markets: Janet Yellen became the new Chairman of the Federal Reserve; we were on the brink of war in Crimea, and Germany won its fourth world cup title. Many countries around the world held elections, the Scotts and the Swiss had referendums and both of them decided to maintain the status quo, whether it was against Scottish independence or the Gold initiative. I wouldn’t describe this year as a tough one for gold, considering that it is ending the year close to where it left off end-2013. While some may perceive this negatively and against the rationale for holding physical gold, I find it more relevant than ever, like I said last year. The main reason why gold did not move against the tide this year is, in my opinion, because appearances have a stronger influence on the minds of the people than the facts presented by reality. The global debt situation is much worse than a few years ago and real economic growth is near zero. Income inequality is rising faster than ever before. The Federal Reserve’s balance sheet expanded from about USD890 billion to more than USD4.5 trillion since end-2007 and the only outcome so far has been an artificial spike in different asset classes and an expansion of the welfare-warfare state. The fact is that a fiat-money system always results in massive centralization, in terms of the economic landscape, “wealth-accumulation” and an ever-expanding state apparatus. The accumulation of debt is part and parcel of this mechanism. No necessary reforms or structural changes have taken place, which would allow a more positive outlook for 2015.

More and more people feel that something is going completely wrong because they understand that it is not possible to fight over-indebtedness by piling up even more and more debt. The majority of the public, I believe, understands they need to sacrifice the present for the future. However, they suppress their conclusion. Most of them want to believe in a miracle and live in the hope that only the others will be affected by the negative consequences of today’s system, which my friend Prof. Dr. Thorsten Polleit calls a system of “collective corruption”. Men refuse to think about the rational outcome of our unsustainable system and prefer to believe in the lie they have been told a hundred times rather than a new truth which is based on the facts. However, we can’t hide from the future or as Herbert Stein used to say: “if something cannot go on forever, it will stop”. The Soviet Union did not collapse because their citizens finally changed their minds and opposed communism; the USSR collapsed because it could no longer be funded.

The only achievement since the global financial crisis is that central banks purchased time financed by “money” that we simply don’t have. According to the Bank of International Settlements, total non-financial debt in advanced economies rose by 37 percentage points to 279% of GDP since the global financial crisis! Even emerging markets, which managed to somehow resist the pileup of debt in the past, have now reached a debt level of 157% of GDP. Instead of cutting the cord and putting an end to this dependence on additional credit, the western economies seek to solve their problems by printing more money and accumulating more debt! Mario Draghi believes that the way out is for the ECB to buy corporate bonds and asset-backed securities amongst other assets, dreaming of increasing the ECB balance sheet by EUR 1 trillion to reach around EUR 3 trillion! Also Japan, which has been in a QE mindset for years plans to address any prospect of a recession with even more asset purchases! How valuable can money be if all central banks just want to print more of it? Money is no longer a property title, instead it became an I-owe-something, the Dollar and every other paper money we hold today are simply IOUs. Due to this debt-based system, we need more and more money so that the system does not collapse, because as we all know, loans need to be repaid with interest. This constant increase in the money supply reduces its purchasing power. As long as governments and central banks can redistribute wealth from the middle class, they will continue to do so – the outcome of which will be impoverishment on a wide scale and the destruction of our society.

Mia Love Pulls No Punches When Asked Where She Stands on Obamacare

Martha Raddatz of ABC News’ “This Week” sounded and looked a bit incredulous on Sunday when she asked newly-elected House Republican Mia Love if she supports Sen. Ted Cruz’s plan to “do everything humanly possible to stop Obamacare.”

Unaffected by Raddatz’ not-so-subtle query, Love replied in a decidedly straightforward manner, explaining that she has campaign promises to uphold.

“Look, I was elected by my district to make sure that we get the decision-making back in their hands,” said Love, who’s set to represent Utah’s 4th congressional district. “And I’ve said I was going to do everything I can to repeal and replace it with something that is functional…with broad health-care reforms, free-market health-care reforms. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”

When Love narrowly defeated Democratic rival Doug Owens for an open Democratic seat in November, she became the first black Republican woman elected to the U.S. House.
