UK Bans Big Pro-Trump Rally

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan suppressed a large pro Trump rally by threatening to arrest anyone who showed up.

‘Free Speech Is Dead’ – Police in Khan’s London BAN Pro-Trump Rally at U.S. Embassy

Police in Sadiq Khan’s London have used the Public Order Act to prevent a rally in support of U.S. President Donald Trump outside the American embassy, despite permitting a large, ill-tempered anti-Trump rally on Friday.

Protestors attending the ‘Welcome Trump’ event had planned to gather outside the embassy and march from there to Whitehall, where they would have joined in with a separate ‘Free Tommy Robinson’ event in support of the activist and independent journalist who was recently imprisoned for contempt of court after reporting on a grooming gang trial.

But the Metropolitan Police Force, which answers to a large extent to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, used the Public Order Act to impose a raft of restrictions on both groups of protesters which made this impossible — despite allowing far larger anti-Trump protests at which at least six people were arrested to go ahead on Saturday, with demonstrators carrying signs emblazoned with harsh profanity and messages such as “Die Trump Die”.

Average price of U.S. gas slips a penny, to $2.94 a gallon

The average price in the US is $2.94

Why is Moscow 30¢ more expensive? 

The average price of regular-grade gasoline in the U.S. fell a penny a gallon over the past three weeks to $2.94.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday that the average price is 63 cents higher than it was one year ago.

Lundberg says prices at the pump may continue to slip slightly, due in part to weak gasoline demand caused by the higher prices.

The highest average price in the contiguous 48 states was $3.74 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The lowest was $2.52 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Social Media Giants To Testify On Alleged Censorship Of Conservative Views


Facebook sought to delete Trump’s posts about restricting immigration from violent countries that happen to be predominately Muslim. 

Canadian conservative activist Lauren Southern was slapped with a 30-day Facebook suspension over — ironically enough — a post complaining about Facebook censorship of conservatives.
a post saying that Trump is “not anti Muslim (but) anti ISIS” and that “we are too busy being politically correct” to assess the potential danger posed by radicals among harmless refugees was removed and its author was banned from Facebook.


There are tons of examples here.

Deary juniors top Idaho public high schools in average SAT scoring

Let me get this right:

  1. The Deary public school outscored all the other expensive public schools in Idaho? 
  2. The charter schools outscore the public schools? Even though they are run at a cheaper price? 
  3. The private schools outscore them all? Even though they are run at a cheaper price? 

Clearly we need to raise spending on the government schools </sarcasm>. Via the LMT

Deary Junior-Senior High School juniors shattered the statewide average test score on the SAT this year.

The feat makes Deary Idaho’s highest scoring public education high school, with an average score of 1,111 on the college-entrance exam.

The statewide average score was 989. Only districts with private or charter schools beat Deary.
Principal Darrah Eggers said the school has always placed high on the exam, but has never led the pack in public education.

“We have been placing in the top 30 schools every year for public schools in the state, and then in the region we are always near the top,” Eggers said.

“We always do well, but we’ve never been the top school, so we’re pretty thrilled with this.”

Even more impressive, Eggers said, is that the school’s poverty rate is higher than the state average, creating more challenges.
“It’s unique to do this with a high poverty rate,” he said.
