The Department Of Education Misspells Apology For Misspelling W.E.B. Du Bois' Name
Huffington Post - 12 days
Maybe the Department of Education should have double-checked the spelling of W.E.B. Du Bois’ name with Frederick Douglass before tweeting about him. In a tweet that went out Sunday morning, the agency attributed a quote from famous civil rights activist Du Bois to “W.E.B. DeBois.” Education must not simply teach work - it must teach life. – W.E.B. DeBois pic.twitter.com/Re4cWkPSFA — US Dept of Education (@usedgov) February 12, 2017 The internet was quick to point out how horrifying it is that the Department of Education ― now run by Betsy DeVos, an education activist who critics fear could dismantle the public education system ― would misspell the name of a civil rights leader, especially during Black History Month.  The NAACP clapped back with an apt Du Bois quote, while others roasted the department for its carelessness.  "In the Days of Loose & Careless Logic, We Must Teach Thinkers to THINK." - William Edward Burghardt DU Bois https://t.co/ ...

Enjoying President Trump? Then Blame Democrats For Cheating Bernie Sanders
Huffington Post - 17 days
In a recent CounterPropa.com article, I explain that President Obama either bombed, sanctioned or sent American soldiers to the seven nations on President Trump’s travel ban. Thus, the precedent for Trump’s stance on refugees correlates directly to policies from the Bush and Obama years. These policies helped create the refugee crisis that Trump has so awkwardly addressed with his draconian executive order. From Trump’s travel ban of Muslim majority nations to allegedly belligerent phone calls with world leaders, media and Democrats have reacted with outrage and disbelief. It’s as if the Democratic Party and loyal “lesser evil” voters didn’t think cheating Bernie Sanders would lead to such political turmoil. When Debbie Wasserman Shultz resigned from the DNC and friendly journalists covered-up the crime, it was too late; Bernie was forced out of the primary. The only chance for Democrats to defeat a populist Republican nominee, during an anti-establishment year in American politic ...

Subway Riders Rise Up To Clean Swastikas From New York Train
Huffington Post - 19 days
Symbols of hate transformed into a moment of love and community for New York City subway riders when they banded together to remove swastikas and other anti-Semitic markings from a train’s walls. Rider Gregory Locke had just boarded a train in Manhattan Saturday night when he said he found himself face-to-face with the crudely vandalized windows and advertisements. “The train was silent as everyone stared at each other, uncomfortable and unsure what to do,” he wrote in a Facebook post. “One guy got up and said, ‘Hand sanitizer gets rid of Sharpie. We need alcohol.’ He found some tissues and got to work.” The man’s actions sparked a ripple effect among the other riders who Locke said got up to help wipe away the graffiti. “I’ve never seen so many people simultaneously reach into their bags and pockets looking for tissues and [Purell]. Within about two minutes, all the Nazi symbolism was gone,” Locke wrote. Speaking to ABC 7 News, Locke said the actions of hi ...

Down with Name Calling: What My Daughter and Our Nation's First Child Can Teach Us
Huffington Post - 27 days
A while back I had a dialogue with my oldest daughter about name-calling, and how this form of bullying and humiliation is typically associated with children and youth -- yet it's adults who are by far the worst culprits, and if their younger counterparts eventually join the name-calling bandwagon, it's because of them. My daughter Cali, for one, takes me and anyone else in her orbit to task for even the most ostensibly gentle name-calling; in her book, it's more deliberate than meets the eye. Sad to say, in my case, she's right. I'm far more sensitive and away of my real intentions now when it comes to name calling, and that there likely is more 'bite' to my words than I realize -- and far, far more aware of the impact it has on my children and others. Thank you, Cali. Katie Rich of Saturday Night Live (or formerly of Saturday Night Live, given that the writer's name is no longer in the show credits) was recently castigated far and wide for her absolutely senseless Twitter pos ...

  • 2007
    Age 26
    In December 2007, Clinton began campaigning in Iowa in support of her mother's bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.
    More Details Hide Details She appeared across the country, largely on college campuses. By early April 2008, she had spoken at 100 colleges on behalf of her mother's candidacy. While campaigning, Clinton answered audience questions but did not give interviews or respond to press questions, including one from a nine-year-old Scholastic News reporter asking whether her father would be a good "first man." She replied, "I'm sorry, I don't talk to the press and that applies to you, unfortunately. Even though I think you're cute." Philippe Reines, her mother's press secretary, intervened when the press attempted to approach Chelsea directly. When MSNBC reporter David Shuster characterized Clinton's participation in her mother's campaign as "sort of being pimped out," the Clinton campaign objected. Shuster subsequently apologized on-air and was suspended for two weeks. The first time she was asked about her mother's handling of the Lewinsky scandal at a campaign stop Clinton responded, "I do not think that is any of your business." As she became a more experienced campaigner, she refined her responses and deflected questions on the issue with comments such as, "If that's what you want to vote on, that's what you should vote on. But I think there are other people are going to vote on things like healthcare and economics."
    In 2007 and 2008, Clinton campaigned extensively on American college campuses for her mother's unsuccessful Democratic presidential nomination bid, and introduced her at both the 2008 and 2016 Democratic National Conventions.

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2001
    Age 20
    In July 2001, President Clinton revealed that Chelsea would be pursuing a master's degree at University College of the University of Oxford later that year – the same college where he studied politics between 1968 and 1970 on a Rhodes Scholarship; Chelsea did not apply for a Rhodes Scholarship.
    More Details Hide Details Lord Butler of Brockwell, the Master of University College, said: "Her record at Stanford shows that she is a very well-qualified and able student. The college is also pleased to extend its link with the Clinton family." Upon the recommendation of British and American advisors, the university implemented security measures, and fellow students were asked not to discuss her with the press. Arriving at Oxford just after the September 11 attacks on the United States, Clinton was drawn to other American students who were also feeling the emotional after-effects of the trauma. She told Talk magazine: Every day I encounter some sort of anti-American feeling. Over the summer, I thought I would seek out non-Americans as friends, just for diversity's sake. Now I find that I want to be around Americans – people who I know are thinking about our country as much as I am.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1999
    Age 18
    In early 1999, the Clintons learned of an article being planned by People that examined the First Family's relationships in the wake of scandals and the impending vote on President Clinton's impeachment.
    More Details Hide Details The Secret Service told the magazine that they had concerns that the story could compromise Chelsea's security. People decided to run the story anyway, and Bill and Hillary issued a statement expressing their regret and sadness. Carol Wallace, People managing editor, affirmed the magazine's sensitivity to the Clintons' concerns, but felt 19-year-old Chelsea was "an eyewitness to family drama and historical events" and thus "a valid journalistic subject". The article, entitled "Grace Under Fire", was published in February 1999 with a cover photo of Chelsea and Hillary. During the last year of her father's presidency, Chelsea assumed some White House hostess responsibilities when her mother was campaigning for the U.S. Senate, traveling with her father on several overseas trips and attending state dinners with him.
  • 1998
    Age 17
    The topic of her 150-page senior thesis was the 1998 Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland.
    More Details Hide Details At the time of Chelsea's graduation, President Clinton issued a statement saying, "Hillary and I are grateful for the friendships and great learning experiences Chelsea had at Stanford, and we are very proud of her on this special day."
  • 1997
    Age 16
    Clinton entered Stanford in the fall of 1997 and majored in history.
    More Details Hide Details The week before she arrived on campus, her mother published an open letter in her syndicated column asking journalists to leave her daughter alone. Chelsea arrived at Stanford in a motorcade with her parents, Secret Service men, and almost 250 journalists. For her security, bullet-proof glass was installed in her dorm windows and cameras were placed in hallways. In addition, Secret Service men dressed as students lived in her dorm. With the exception of an occasional tabloid story written about her, Chelsea's four years at Stanford remained out of public view. Clinton graduated in 2001 with honors and a B.A. in History.
    She graduated from Sidwell Friends in 1997; her father spoke at the graduation ceremony.
    More Details Hide Details Following Chelsea's high school graduation, media speculation regarding her choice of college resulted in heavy press coverage. She ultimately chose to attend Stanford University. During her father's eight years in office, there were 32 stories in The New York Times and 87 network news stories about Chelsea. Of all presidential children preceding her, she received the most television coverage. Although her father is a Southern Baptist, Clinton was raised in her mother's Methodist faith. She attended Foundry United Methodist Church on 16th Street, NW in Washington and met with other teens on Sunday mornings to examine questions of faith, philosophy, and issues of concern to her age group. Her parents joined her at the youth group's parent-teen round tables. An adult group leader thought Clinton to be "a terrific kid" and observed that she was treated as an equal in the group. Away from church, her social activities included visits to a Planet Hollywood restaurant with friends and sleep-overs in and out of the White House. President Clinton sometimes joined her and her sleep-over friends for breakfast.
    A veteran of Model United Nations, Clinton was a 1997 National Merit Scholarship semifinalist.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1993
    Age 12
    Margaret Truman, daughter of former president Harry S. Truman, supported the Clintons, and in March 1993 wrote a letter to the editor of The New York Times about the damage that could be done if the press made Chelsea a subject of intense coverage.
    More Details Hide Details Journalists debated the issue of allowing Clinton to retain her privacy. Most media outlets concluded that she should be off-limits due to her age, although Rush Limbaugh and Saturday Night Live both broadcast material mocking her appearance. During this phase of her life, her father said, "We really work hard on making sure that Chelsea doesn't let other people define her sense of her own self-worth... It's tough when you are an adolescent... but I think she'll be ok." The Clintons' decision to remove Chelsea from public schooling and send her to Sidwell Friends School, a private school in Washington, D.C., drew criticism. While several children of sitting presidents have attended there, the most recent prior child, Amy Carter, had gone to D.C. public schools. In a 1993 CBS This Morning town meeting, Bill defended the choice, stating that Chelsea did not like "getting a lot of publicity" and would have "more control over her destiny" at Sidwell. Bill explained that they made their decision in an effort to protect Chelsea's privacy; they did not "reject the public schools". Sidwell's students and staff remained silent regarding Chelsea, declining to discuss her publicly and thereby giving her the privacy that the First Family had sought.
    On January 20, 1993, the day of her father's first inauguration, Chelsea moved into the White House with her parents and was given the Secret Service codename "Energy".
    More Details Hide Details The Clintons wanted their daughter to have a normal childhood, and they hoped to shield her from the media spotlight. Hillary followed the advice of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis on raising children in the White House, and asked the press to limit coverage of Chelsea to her participation in public events such as state visits.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1980
    Born
    Chelsea Victoria Clinton was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on February 27, 1980.
    More Details Hide Details She is the only child of Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham. Chelsea's name was inspired by a visit to the Chelsea neighborhood of London during a Christmas 1978 vacation; Hillary said that upon hearing the 1969 Judy Collins recording of the Joni Mitchell song, "Chelsea Morning", Bill remarked, "If we ever have a daughter, her name should be Chelsea." When Chelsea was two years old, she accompanied her parents as they campaigned throughout Arkansas for her father's gubernatorial race. She attended Forest Park Elementary School, Booker Arts and Science Magnet Elementary School and Horace Mann Junior High School, which are public schools in Little Rock. She skipped the third grade.
