Betsy DeVos

Of all of Trump’s appointments, DeVos is the one I care least about and wouldn’t be disappointed at all if she fails to get confirmed by the Senate. That could actually be a good thing, because the liberals would feel like they scored some sort of “victory” while Trump’s more important appointments get through, and I’m sure Trump can find someone better to run the Department of Education.

As I previously wrote:

Bad choice here by Trump. I suspect this was a position that he didn’t care much about, and he let his TruCon advisers pick her. And at the same time he could check a gender diversity box!

Although the issues of vouchers and charter schools arouse people’s passions, what the Department of Education mostly does is manage the student loan program. A technocrat manager who could make that work more efficiently and help prevent students from being ripped off by lenders would have been a much better choice.

  1. I mostly agree. I don’t care about her, and no matter who is the Education Secretary, not much is going to change. So I’m willing to offer her up as a sacrifice to Dems who want a scalp badly.

  4. I’d be pretty disappointed, not because I think she’s even remotely a good pick but because it’s critically important to keep up the momentum in the early days of an administration. Defeats and momentum-stalling pyrrhic victories are what stop Presidents from realizing their agendas.

    That’s why everyone always talks about the first 100 days. You want the waverers to feel caught up in the historical moment instead of worrying about their reelections.

  5. It is not good to give liberals even token victories. Grind them underfoot! If they manage to defeat DeVos, then Trump should nominate someone well known for wanting to abolish the Department of Education entirely. Give it to Perry as his second job!

  6. The LA Times just ran a fairly good piece on a corrupt charter-school network. It’s the kind of story that exposes the naivete of GOPe blank slaters – it produced decent test results but was rotten from pillar to post. The LA Times was dutifully circumspect in omitting a picture of the schools’ founder, but she’s easy enough to Google and let’s just say she’s very…intersectional.

      • The Senate was originally meant to represent the States at the Federal level. That’s why they were elected by the state legislatures. It gave the people more direct control over their representatives. The 17th amendment changed that. Now the Senate serves as second (useless) House of Representatives. The Senate needs to be abolished or the 17th amendment needs to be repealed.

      • The House is (roughly) “one person, one vote.” The Senate is in effect “one STATE, one vote.” That arrangement prevents a handful of large-population states from dominating the federal government. The small states would not have ratified the Constitution without that protection to their relevance. The Senate also empowers low-population regions, such as the farmbelt.

  7. The teachers unions really hate DeVos for some reason. That’s a big bonus in her favor as far as I’m concerned.

    Look, put lots of pressure on the teachers unions. Make them squeal in agony. We WANT them to come out openly and say: “Look everyone, there’s not really much we can do with the students we have! Have you ever been to an inner city school! It’s hopeless! Why are you forcing us to do the impossible?!!! ”

    Few things could be better for our side than to get one of the pillars of the Left, out of their own self-interest, to explicitly and publicly say what they know privately to be true.

    • TruCon types make out teachers to be this evil force for leftism, when most teachers are just borderline prole-middle-class people who thought they liked to work with children and then got smacked by the reality of HBD.

      • “when most teachers are just borderline prole-middle-class people”

        To an extent, but less so every day. Most of the Nice White Girls who have gone into education in the past 10 years are rampant SJWs. Many of them are so brainwashed they don’t even get red pilled when 10 year old D’Shavius grabs their ass or spits on them and threatens to kill them. Of course some do see the light, but it’s amazing how hard it is to crush the SJW blank-slate fantasy these people have.

        Education also has a lot of totally cucked out men. I bet 50% of the “men” at the Women March were teachers or guidance counsellors (who are 90% SJWs).

        All that said, I agree that a lot of the past generation or two of teachers are basically proles and many of them disagree with the rabid Leftist stance of their unions. But enough agree that the teacher’s unions never have a problem getting a few hundred people to show up for a demonstration, to work the phone lines for Hillary, etc. And that’s a few hundred people in every reasonably sized city in America. Their power is in their numbers, which are huge (quick Google says 3.1 million teachers in America).

        I agree. Most of the teachers that I know that are my age basically just middle-middle class types who think political correctness is ridiculous. I can’t tell how many I’ve spoken to who love to rail against the “anti-bullying” hysteria.

        However, most of the education bureaucrats and especially the education university professors are deeply Left.

      • What evidence is there that public school teachers are in favor of Trump or nationalism? Aren’t 100% of them parasites living off the taxpayers and 90% of them leftist activists working for the Democratic agenda and working to push the current Democratic agenda further left?

        Because a tiny handful of teachers have, anonymously, posted on the internet their horror stories of dealing with inner city blacks, some HBD types think teachers are all ready to line up behind Trump or some kind of HBD agenda. This is a delusion. The teachers are pinkos and should be thrashed. If there are any teachers willing to go against the Democrat agenda they are probably for vouchers and charters.

      • Not where I live, in a conservative district (90% Caucasian in the last census) in the Midwest. Our local school superintendent is a hard-left education bureaucrat who can’t open his mouth without mentioning “white privilege.” The teachers are all unionized, and their union battles constantly with our Republican-controlled legislature. My wife is in a book club with a bunch of other middle-aged ladies, many of whom are current or former teachers. She thinks she is the only Republican in the group – the rest are committed Democrats. Needless to say, they don’t talk much about politics. Again, this is in a Trump-voting Midwestern state. How much worse it must be in the blue states. Teachers are government bureaucrats who want what all bureaucrats want – more money (from the taxpayers) and more power. They are enemies of Trump and the GOP, which is why they oppose DeVos, She is no friend of the teachers unions.

        At the lower grade-school levels it’s silly women with emotional incontinence. At higher college levels it’s autistic left wing extremists. Environments with immature youth draws in adults who think like immature youth. There aren’t enough prole types to offset this trend.

  8. The real ballsy move would be to shut down the Dept. of Ed entirely. When it’s not useless it’s actively harmful. Just say “no more Federal purview over education, it should all be done by the states.” Then shut the doors. The existing student loans can be handed off to some private entity to manage (or better, Trump simply forgives all the government loans and becomes a hero). Going forward, no more federal funding of any kind for any level of education.

    This will hurt the commie teacher’s unions and commie public schools and commie colleges. Let them figure out how to balance their budgets (hmmm… maybe kick out the illegals!).

    Ironically, the Progs have suddenly rediscovered “states rights” with Sanctuary Cities. Trump could flip it on them and say, “gosh, you’re correct! States rights for education!”

    That would be so beautiful, but it won’t happen.

      That would be so beautiful, but it won’t happen.

      The right thinks in terms of rules and the left thinks in terms of goals.

      Oftentimes righties will make statements like this one, thinking they’ve trapped the left in a prison of their own logic. “A-HA! If you’re allowed to do X, that means you have to allow me to do Y!”

      But that’s not how the left thinks. Sanctuary cities are good because illegal immigration is good, Southern states’ rightsers are bad because racial segregation is bad.

      The only reason they even bother with the “states’ rights,” “judicial restraint,” “executive overreach” and other such arguments is because, like clockwork, the National Review, Paul Ryan crowd will rush to endorse them.

      Again, the right thinks in terms of rules and the left thinks in terms of goals. Favoring states’ rights only when it favors the left is not seen by leftists as contradictory. A black, gay, fellow leftist who’s not totally with the program on Muslims is what they consider contradictory, and that’s punished accordingly.

      This difference between rightists (“I must support states’ rights in all cases, even when it benefits the left”) and leftists (“I must always fight for The Oppressed, even if I have to argue the opposite of what I’ve said in the past”) is probably the biggest reason why there always seems to be a constant ratchet leftwards.

    • At all levels of education, taxpayer money is used to indoctrinate the students in the need for more taxation, more handouts to and preferences for minorities and the poor and the rest of the leftist agenda. Education should be privatized–if humanities and social sciences professors want to indoctrinate people, they should go right ahead, but they shouldn’t be able to force the victims of their harangues to finance their own political destruction.

Having spent three hideous years trapped in the straight commission life insurance pyramid scam, resulting in financial ruin from which it took a long time to recover and psychological damage from which I’ll never recover, I have a visceral loathing for all pyramid schemes and MLM outfits. And DeVos is a bigwig in the world’s biggest MLM outfit.

      Can you expand on this?

      SJ, Esquire (formerly Samson J)

      February 3, 2017 at 9:27 am

      • Crafty recruiters sucker people into the straight commission life insurance pyramid scam through a variety of devious means. They focus on all the (real or imaginary) drawbacks of normal jobs, touting the fact that agents are in control of their own destinies rather than at the mercies of ignorant, bottom-line-obsessed bosses. Recruiters love using the term “unlimited earnings potential,” as they know that people hear only the “unlimited” part and utterly disregard the “potential.” Aware that most people have heard of the high failure rate for agents, they build up candidates, making each one think that he or she really IS a special snowflake. Finally, they play up like crazy the supposed professionalism of insurance sales, how agents are performing vital services in securing families’ financial services, and are respected members of the community.

        People who are unlucky enough to sign on as agents, often (and tragically) leaving decent jobs in order to do so, almost always get whacked in the face by the sledgehammer of reality soon enough. Trying to work as an agent is a nightmare of quota pressure, driving all over creation (with no gas reimbursement, of course) in an attempt to make sales, incessant hostility from customers, and in the vast majority of cases income that doesn’t even come up to minimum wage. Case in point: I started with a very large, very well-known insurance company at the very beginning of January 2010. There were about 25 people in my monthly training class. When I left six months later, only two people from the class remained. And given that it was 2010 it sure wasn’t as if there were excellent jobs galore to lure them away.

He had some interesting things to say about the contents of Anthony Weiner’s laptop just before the election. Since the post-Inauguration atmosphere is shaping up to be one of escalating 4th Generation Warfare, doesn’t it seem like a smart move to form a dynastic alliance with a guy who has demonstrated expertise in creating and deploying an off-the-books private army composed of former SpecOps snake-eaters?

  11. Like many unions the teachers union is on its last legs and wields no real power. As the Lion says most teachers are just regular people trying to do their jobs. While most of them lean toward the left I’ve yet to meet a communist.

    While it is true that it is largely the type of student who determine the class outcome a good teacher can make a significant difference. My youngest daughter is such a teacher. Until three years ago she taught AP English and was happy in her job. At that point her principal came to her and ask her to head up a new Program for down and out kids. Her school mascot is a lion, so the program is called the ”Lion’s Den”. The students assigned to this program are kids who are all functioning way below grade level and many of whom failed every class in middle school but received social promotion. Most of them are either black, Mexican, or Ukrainian. Some but not all are also behavior problems as well. Knowing that I was bored sitting around home she ask me if I’d volunteer in her classroom, no money just work. There was no set curriculum at that point, how could I refuse such a sweet deal? I couldn’t and now three years later, feel very good about what we’ve accomplished.

    Our average kid reads about four grade levels below where they should be, with some down at the second grade level. When they show up in the fall nearly everyone of them hates reading. Today, we spent most of each period in the library picking out books for each student’s next book project. When we left, the librarian complemented them for being such ladies and gentlemen.

    How do we make it work? We kill them with kindness and love. Almost none of these kids were very loveable when they arrived and most didn’t believe my daughter when she told them if they tried she’d make sure they were able to pass all their classes. I think only 2 of 48 failed more than one class first semester.

    Hopefully I’ll last at least until our first class graduates next year. I’m always amazed at how many of our former students stop by just to shot the breeze before and after school. I always tell them that once you are in the “Den” it’s like the Mafia, the only way out is if I shoot them in the knee.

    One of the cool things about this site is the intellectual level of the readers. I suspect that each of you had at east one teacher who you liked who helped put you on the road to academic success.

      February 2, 2017 at 6:21 pm

    • I think Oden’s Raven has a good point here.

      Yes, it’s important to remember that teachers are leftists and the higher up you go in the academic pyramid, the more left-wing it becomes. It is, however, important to remember that, even among teachers, it is possible to peel away enough loyalists to do some real damage.

      First, Republicans need to abandon the blank-slatism, but you don’t do this by forcing HBD. You pose a simple question: what exactly are the teachers doing wrong pedagogically that is leading to the low test outcomes? If you say they are not teaching, then what is happening in the classroom? Are they watching movies or something? I would love to see a program come out where they install cameras in classrooms that you can access to see what is going on.

      Remember, schools are monopsony employers, so even red-pilled teachers will back unions. Without unions, school districts would import foreigners for 50 cents on the dollar. There are ways to peel away teachers without threatening a livelihood. Also, you don’t want school vouchers or charter schools. These are just disguised bussing programs.

  13. Looks like the cucks including Lion are out in full force against charter schools. Charter schools have exploded in popularity because they represent white flight. People don’t want their kids around niggers/beaners but even if you excluded the non-white factor public schools still push a lot of liberal crap like radical feminism. Public schools really want to cut your ball off and put them into the grinder.

    Not to mention the harassment and bullying that occurs. Parent’s aren’t going to pay for their kids to get a shitty education while being made miserable.

    Kids today can’t read, write, think, count, analyze, or cite history but they sure can babble on about “racism, sexism, and homophobia”. The everybody gets a a trophy generation is all grown up and the results are terrifying.

    Charter schools are publicly funded under the school district umbrella that narrow the gap between public and private schools. They have more freedom in curriculum, are more selective of who they accept, and cater to high proles/middle class.

    Betsy DeVos is a great choice for Secretary of Education and is yet another example of Trump’s excellent reform platform.

    • Sure, she’s fine, but I think you may be overly sanguine about what charter schools accomplish. From what I hear, even private schools peddle the progressive crap that maddens alt-righters. Here’s part of a recent letter to Derb. I’m betting that the executjve the writer is describing attended private schools:

      “The CEO of my company sent out an email to all of our employees following President Trump’s executive order on immigration from those seven unstable Muslim-majority countries. In the email he urged us to keep our workplace “a safe space” for all our co-workers. Our company, he said, values “diversity” and “inclusion.” Our differences, he said, make us stronger.

      Our CEO is an ordinary American guy; not bad or crazy in any way, by no means a Social Justice Warrior, just a suburban dad who worked hard and eventually moved to the top of the organization. Yet he used the phrase “safe space” un-ironically in an email to the firm’s employees. This phrase was not in any sort of use outside of the looniest corners of college grievance culture three years ago.”

    • Charter/homeschools are not the solution to the education problem. They are an escape from it.

      Trump’s ed pick should come down hard on leftism inside public schools and higher academia, or they will continue to pump out leftist memes and produce legions of SJWs.

      IMO Betsy DeVos is an aristocratic white lady who does not fully appreciate the real problems plaguing academia, and instead just repeats conservative talking points over and over. That didn’t fix leftism in the past, and it won’t now.

Its bad enough White parents have to fund schools they don’t want their kids going to, but now the cuckservatives want to diversity bomb the private schools too. EVIL.
    If they stop her, maybe Trump will do the right thing and close the whole useless federal department down. There are already school boards that are supposed to run this. Local school boards you can threaten and make do your bidding. These Washington bureaucrats rule from afar like they were Mogul Overlords.

  16. This is actually a really important pick though. Dept of Education is where Obama forced colleges into treating all college boys as rapists, using the threat of loss of federal funds. It’s where Obama tried to force schools to let boys in girls bathrooms and vice versa. We have lots to do to reverse this, and DeVos better get started.

  17. actually, the secretary of education is very important as far as fighting back against the multiculturalist war on whites….the elites made war on white working class culture starting many decades ago….and now we see the results….extrapolating from current trends, it is not inconceivable that in the next few years they will be hunting down whites and hanging them in the streets…so the stakes are high…

    this culture-driven multiculturalist war on whites is based on a slanted, anti-white, pro-nonwhite version of history. This slanted, anti-white, pro-nonwhite version of history is disseminated through the school curriculum, starting very early in grade school and continuing on into college…this slanted version of history is shoved into the brains of young and malleable kids in school. …this slanted version of history makes whites out to be demons and nonwhites out to be angels….it is calculated to produce white adults that are full of white guilt….thus these self-loathing whites are more less likely to vote against mass immigration and multiculturalism when adults…they are too afraid of being racist…

    so, how to stop the war on whites? Change educational curriculum…one tactic is to decentralize authority over educational curriculum….lessen the influence of centralized federal control over the school system…the more local any governmental control, the more likely it is to be friendly to whites, in general…

    this is exactly what trump and devos have in mind…

    • Many of the readers/commenters here do not live in predominantly prole areas and if they do, they are made aware of the fact that being a prole sucks.

      This being said, why would a resident from the Northeast or the left coast care really much about proles? On the same note, proles from these areas tend to be better off than the proles who live in Middle America and the South, who are generally poorer.

    • Yeah right. This woman is one of those rich nosy women who are always crying about hungry kids in Africa. She’s not gonna do squat for White kids. She and her snobbish country club set have nothing good to say about “White Trash”. Those peasants who resent these inbred simpletons and their fancy dress parties. Let them eat shit, is what her kind believe. This isn’t a class issue. The rich don’t have any class. They may know what fork to use with their salad, but these swine have the taste of gluttons and winos when it comes right down to it. Swilling champagne is not far different from swilling beer. They may not like cheese balls and cheese twists, but they eat enough cheese to be cheese balls themselves. It may be served on fine china with tiny fixings, but its just cheese for their flabby ass just the same. I have to laugh at those who say Trump isn’t classy. Compared to whom? The Vanderbilts don’t govern culture here anymore.
