Obama would allow Iran to have nuclear weapons after 10 years of halting uranium enrichment.
Netanyahu, has done his utmost to ensure Israel’s security. In pursuit of this goal he planned to bomb Iran in 2012 to set back their nuclear program but was prevented from doing so by Obama’s leaks and pressures.
During the election campaign, Congressman Boehner, Speaker of the House, invited Netanyahu to address a joint session of the House and he leapt at the opportunity. Obama was apoplectic because he knew that Netanyahu had the potential to unseat his dash toward a bad deal with Iran. Obama did his utmost to discredit Netanyahu. He also mobilized Democrat Congressmen and Senator’s to boycott the speech and not one of the senior echelons of his administration was allowed to attend
Unprecedented action in the history of the USA by Obama’s childish egotistical revenge:
Obama was determined to remove Netanyahu from power. He mobilized his election team headed by Jeremy Bird for the job and arranged for the State Department to fund them to the tune of $350,000 for the job. The US Senate has launched a bipartisan probe into the White House’s alleged funding of an NGO pushing for the ouster of Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Just when you thought it could not get any worse, Obama has removed Iran (the state sponsor of terrorism, death to Israel, death to the USA) from the US terrorist list.
Good news: Arizona is in the process of passing legislation that requires Arizona not to implement any of Obama’s executive orders without congress approval of the executive order.

Re: Gary Orfield
Mr. Blanchard, this is in response to an uninformed Buffalo News editorial and Gary Orfield’s letter to you dated February 10, 2015. I am writing as an individual member of the Buffalo Board of Education, (BOE) and I speak only for myself.
Contrary to Orfield’s letter, I am not the Chairman or leader of the BOE, however, I am a member who is incapable of being cowed by an academic elitist who knows nothing about our BOE’s reform intentions and actually seeks to have you admonish me and delay the implementation of our reform agenda. I intend to do what I was elected to do. Read more ›

In any society or intellectual movement there always exist those realities, often embarrassing ones, that are widely acknowledged in private but remain unspoken in public.
Since these are exactly the sort of truths that seldom appear in published books or articles, they may eventually vanish forever with the generation of individuals who recognized them, leaving future scholars grasping for the missing pieces of a historical puzzle.
Consider, for example, America’s recent difficulties with our system of elementary and secondary education, an issue that has grown so prominent on the lips of political candidates and elected officials of both parties and all ideologies. In inflation-adjusted dollars, our schools have dramatically increased their per- student spending since 1965, but the common consensus is that academic quality has sharply deteriorated. What gives here? Read more ›

According to the attached letters responding to the request from the Joint Schools Construction Board (“JSCB”) and my request set out in my letter of December 12, 2014, each of your departments has decided not to participate in the cost of an audit of the activities of the Program Provider, LP Ciminelli (Ciminelli) in connection with the 11-year, $1.4 billion Joint Schools Construction Project (Project.)
The attorney for Ciminelli is now citing your declinations as evidence that there is nothing wrong with the way the contracts were drawn or administered.
To date Ciminelli has refused to provide any details or supporting records to justify the basis for its 33% overhead, characterizing such information as proprietary.
Pursuant to the enabling legislation and the PPDS agreement, Ciminelli has been and is a fiduciary of the JSCB as its Program Provider/Construction Manager and, as such, has an obligation to provide the JSCB with any and all information pertinent to the Project as it would be required to do by the State of New York. Ciminelli’s argument that any such information is proprietary is unsupportable.
Ciminelli was not given just the responsibility to build the school projects, but was charged with fully representing the JSCB in financing, cost estimating, defining scope, preparing plans, identifying cost savings, preparing and keeping a budget, etc., all on behalf of the taxpayers.
