Based on documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, the Brearley School, an all-girls private school located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, asks the parents of prospective students to explain how their family’s values align with the school’s “commitment to creating an anti-racist and inclusive school community.”
The application also states that the $54,000-per-year school “requires all members, including at least one parent/guardian, to participate in required anti-racist training and ongoing reflection.”
The “anti-racist” requirements surfaced after black alumnae from three prestigious all-girls schools took to Instagram to accuse their alma maters of racism.
Connecticut mom charged after her 11-month-old died from exposure to fentanyl, morphine, and cocaine
Police say that Rebecca Dixon, 35, is responsible for the death of her son, who was found unresponsive on July 6, and was pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital.
During the ensuing investigation, detectives allegedly found evidence of “recent illegal drug use which included empty plastic baggies, a homemade glass smoking pipe, and empty glassine envelopes for heroin in nightstand drawers,” according to the Hartford Courant.
Later, the state’s chief medical examiner classified the toddler’s death as a homicide and concluded that he died from “acute intoxication due to the combined effects of fentanyl and morphine, with recent cocaine exposure.”
New Judicial Watch Study Finds 353 U.S. Counties in 29 States with Voter Registration Rates Exceeding 100%
Judicial Watch announced today that a September 2020 study revealed that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters.
The study found eight states showing state-wide registration rates exceeding 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
The September 2020 study collected the most recent registration data posted online by the states themselves.
This data was then compared to the Census Bureau’s most recent five-year population estimates, gathered by the American Community Survey (ACS) from 2014 through 2018.
Judicial Watch’s latest study is necessarily limited to 37 states that post regular updates to their registration data.
Kemp said the waivers will reform health care in the state, which has one of the country’s highest uninsured rates at 14.8%. The proposal – Georgia Pathways and Access – will help close the coverage gap for hundreds of thousands of Georgians, the governor said.”
Georgia Pathways and Access will provide access to health care insurance for thousands of hardworking Georgians and lower premiums for millions more,” Kemp said.
The waivers will allow the state to create its own model for health care access for more than 1.4 million Georgians, Kemp said.
The state plans to help cover employee copays and premium costs through the program for low-income Georgians. Instead of other Georgians relying on the federal marketplace for insurance, Georgia Pathways and Access will give them more private options for health care coverage, starting January 2022.
PA bakery claims cookie sales have predicted past presidential elections — and here’s how it looks for 2020
A family-owned bakery in the town of Hatboro claims that its election-themed cookies — which are currently flying off the rack — have accurately predicted the outcome of the past three presidential elections.
So far, they say sales indicate a clear leader for the 2020 race, too.
Lochel’s Bakery, located in Montgomery County just north of Philadelphia, had launched its most recent “cookie poll” about six weeks back, offering both “Trump 2020” cookies and “Biden 2020” cookies in red and blue, respectively.
This year’s sales, however, are unlike anything the bakery has seen during the last four election cycles.
The laws allow residents in seven states who have already voted for select candidates by mail to change their minds, usually within a specific time frame after the first ballot has been cast.
In some states, voters can resubmit ballots several times.
Other states allow residents to withdraw their mail-in ballots and vote in-person on Election Day, including Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi,
Pennsylvania and New Mexico. Some of these states require voters to sign an affidavit canceling their absentee ballots before voting in person.
The ballots never made it to their intended recipients and had not been opened or filled out. Special agents from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of the Inspector General said they also found two political fliers as they investigated the matter.
“When the investigation is concluded, the case will be presented for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” Special Agent Scott Balfour said in a statement, according to the Associated Press.
The news comes days after two postal workers in Pennsylvania were charged with federal offenses as federal prosecutors said heaps of undelivered mail were discovered in the trash. While no ballots were found among the mail, two mail-in ballot requests were recovered.
There can be no doubt in anybody’s mind that Big Tech is deliberately censoring conservatives.
Exclusive — ‘This is China, Inc.’: Emails Reveal Hunter Biden’s Associates Helped Communist-Aligned Chinese Elites Secure White House Meetings
These and more explosive never-before-revealed emails were provided to Schweizer by Bevan Cooney, a one-time Hunter Biden and Devon Archer business associate. Cooney is currently in prison serving a sentence for his involvement in a 2016 bond fraud investment scheme.
Cooney, their associate who is currently serving a prison sentence on his conviction in the matter, later reestablished contact with Schweizer through investigative journalist Matthew Tyrmand.
From prison, Cooney provided Schweizer with written authorization, his email account name, and password to his Gmail account to retrieve these emails.
He authorized, in writing, the publication of these emails— notable because it is the first time a close associate has publicly confirmed Hunter’s trading on his father’s influence.
Toward the end of the call, Jones condemned Biden for refusing to condemn antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters and slammed the media for not asking Biden about them.
He lamented that “more black lives have been killed as the result of these riots and looting and shooting” than from police shootings of unarmed black men “but no one asks him about that.”
Earlier on the call, Pierson praised Trump’s efforts on school choice and his Platinum Plan for Black America.
Walker listed the president’s achievements for the black community: historically low unemployment for African Americans, the First Step Act, opportunity zones, and more.
“Joe Biden and the liberal party do not give a damn about black people,” Jones argued.
“Donald Trump showed them what it was like to earn the black vote. Joe Biden has a record of failure and Donald J. Trump has a record of success.”
Sr Hickenlooper Advisor Reveals Reason For Flip-Flop On Fracking Ban; Staffer ‘I think [he’s] lying’
Senate campaign staffers for former Colorado governor John W. Hickenlooper Jr. told a Project Veritas Action Fund journalist they are confused about the Democrat’s stand on fracking.
Maisha Fields, a senior advisor to the Hickenlooper’s Senate campaign, acknowledged the conflict in the former governor’s fracking position in a conversation with an undercover journalist.
Social media and technology have changed this country forever, and we’re seeing just how badly it has become during this election season.
Glenn, Pat, and Stu discuss how Joe Biden supporters seem to be completely IN THE DARK and sheltered from what’s REALLY going on.
After all, the ONLY reason why Biden supporters could justifiably defend his history of corruption would be if they believe their “team” must win no matter what.
Glenn says he’d never support President Trump if some of the accusations made against him turned out to be true.
Why? Because, “I’m team America.”
“This is Hunter Biden’s emails, texts, and really the photographs will shock the hell out of you,” Giuliani said, adding that Hunter Biden’s attorney was not disputing their legitimacy.
He claimed he had a memo tying Joe Biden to Hunter Biden’s international business, while the presidential nominee repeatedly has denied discussing Hunter’s overseas business interests with him.
The former New York City mayor said Friday that Hunter Biden’s lawyer made a “very big mistake.”
“Before this was even out, they were just called about it,” Giuliani said. “The first thing he does is call that merchant and he says can I have my client’s hard drive back?
So, he is basically admitting for his client as his client’s agent, that’s Hunter Biden’s hard drive.”
Moderator George Stephanopoulos and undecided voters asked the Democratic nominee about everything from mandating a COVID-19 vaccine to how he’d handle a defeat on Nov. 3, but no one pressed Biden on newly unearthed emails that showed Hunter Biden selling access to his then-vice president dad.Instead,
Biden was lobbed a series of softball questions in Philadelphia on Thursday night while Stephanopoulos offered minimal pushback.
As the town hall ended, the former Clinton administration employee thanked voters for their “really terrific questions,” calling them “a service to our democracy.”
Other emails in the trove show a keen awareness of Hunter Biden’s relationship to his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, who was leading U.S. diplomacy with regard to Ukraine.
In May 2014, Pozharksyi wrote to Hunter Biden and Archer explaining that Burisma was under pressure from the Ukrainian government.
He claimed that government officials, seeking cash, had decided to pressure the company by launching investigations that could result in the company losing its energy licenses or its business partners.
He added:”We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message / signal, etc .to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions”.
With Facebook and Twitter blocking stories about the Biden emails, a good portion of the nation has not heard of Hunter and Joe Biden’s misdeeds.
With Reddit’s initial blocking of the story, numbers who will visit the polls today may remain uninformed.
And the left calls Trump’s followers the next generation of Hitler.
They have truly earned the title of Goebbels’ protégés.
Breitbart also reported that the FBI has held the evidence leaked to the New York Post since 2019.
With this laptop and its hard drive sitting in the hands of the FBI leadership since the time of the impeachment, there has been enough time for announcements to be made.
Therefore, the only conclusion we can draw is that Wray has worked again to subvert justice.
He needs to be perp walked.
A knife-wielding man shouted “Allahu Akbar” and then beheaded a middle school teacher on a street in Paris on Friday — after the educator had shown students cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, according to reports.
The attacker, who was shot dead moments later by cops, was the father of a student at the school who may have had terrorist ties, according to Le Parisien and Le Monde.
His victim, who taught history, had shown his students cartoons of Muhammad from the magazine Charlie Hebdo during a class debate on freedom of expression, Le Monde and NBC News reported.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, the chairman and CEO of Dubai-based DP World, says they will remove barriers to business links previously “not allowed”, by shortening trade routes and making it easier to deal with Europe.
Israeli estimates suggest trade with the UAE could eventually total $4bn a year, creating 15,000 jobs.
Mr bin Sulayem agrees it would be mutually beneficial: “We need something from Israel, they need something from us”.
Many exports are likely to be technology based, including cyber-security, as well as the latest innovations in medicine and agriculture.
Psychologist: How To Fight Woke Brainwashing Of Your Kids (Pt.3)| Gad Saad | ACADEMIA | Rubin Report
These idea pathogens are being pushed towards younger and younger audiences. Public schools are becoming factories of indoctrination and there are increasing reports of woke school curriculums aiming to get into kid’s brains before they’ve made it to high school.
These woke kids are being taught bizarre and dangerous ideas about racial identity.

Gad also discusses the sign of a true friend and why Jordan Peterson embodies those ideals and why we all need to find our inner honey badger to fight off the threat of idea pathogens.
“Why Are These Old White People So Upset!?”: Loyola Marymount Students Impeach Latina Senator Over Her Conservative Views
Loyola Marymount University student Stephanie Martinez is exactly what schools seek in admissions. She is politically and socially active.
She has been involved in the school’s governance and community, including serving at the government senator for diversity and inclusion. She is also conservative.
That last element proved unacceptable recently when fellow students impeached her after a three-hour proceeding because she expressed her opposition to illegal immigration on social media.
While a few students protested, other students mocked the outcry and the coverage on sites like The College Fix.
One student is quoted on social media as saying “it’s a f***ing seat on a random student government senate. Why are these old white people so upset!?”
The answer is something that is becoming less and less of a concern on campuses: free speech.
NOTICE: The content of this video is part of an official whistleblower complaint.
On the day Shadow Gate had an early release, a well planned targeted smear campaign by media outlets and social media influencers was launched to distract away from the subtle panic the military industrial complex was going through in the background.
What was so dangerous about Shadow Gate and our whistleblowers that the documentary created such a knee-jerk reaction?
That is the subject of this documentary.
