I apologize for sharing and disseminating Sandra Tan’s personal email message to me- it was inappropriate of me to do so and as a result, I have taken it off this website page.

It’s simple Sandy. I made the motion to terminate Olgilvie to make a point that betrayal and treachery constitute unacceptable bad behavior, and with no consequences will send the wrong message to him and to others.
I knew that the politically correct liberals on the Board knew that what I was doing was correct, but couldn’t buy into such a disciplinary stance because they are such forgiving souls, tomorrow is just another day and it’s better to use the “time proven” exercise of restorative justice that has worked so well at Bennett and Riverside High Schools.
Good leadership demands that you lead from the front and if you are committed to the effort to really win, you make the hard calls and obliterate anything that stands in your way. Read more ›
To: Dawn Bracely, John Neville, Rod Watson and Warren Colville (Buffalo News):
Dawn and Rod… this is for writers like you who don’t get it. You are missing a great opportunity to help minority children held captive in a failed school system implanted in the cycle of poverty. Why wouldn’t you support real education no matter what the vehicle (charter schools, SEED schools, neighborhood schools, vouchers, tax credits, etc.) for all the kids. What is wrong with you people? Are you tone deaf? Do you just put the blinders on and support the minority women on the Board who have no plan and demand the failed status quo? Why can’t you see what everyone else in the community sees– that the African American Board members have no interest in helping educate the children? They only seek self -empowerment. Most were elected in a ridiculous separate election in May by a couple hundred union and political activist voters who happen to show up on Election Day. There are no brain surgeons amongst them. It was on their watch, complicit with Phil Rumore, that the system decayed. For how long are we to keep doing the same thing waiting for a miracle from heaven? When do we get a sense of urgency? Are we just going to sit back and let another generation of poverty stricken kids get swept into the drain?

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 ›
