A battle over California charter schools ends — for now
8-29-19, LATimes -- Gavin Newsom's office helped broker an agreement between charter school advocates and government public schools giving public school districts more authority to reject petitions for new charter schools. Initiated in the early 1990s as a way to bring innovation into California’s K-12 school system, the number of charter schools has grown sharply over the years, primarily in the state’s urban school systems, and have become a flashpoint for unions, who contend they draw enrollment away from traditional public schools, depriving them of critical funding and resources.

Comey defiant after IG report says he violated policies

James Comey is off the hook again! Disgraced former FBI Chief wants apology
8-1-19, LibertyHub -- Disgraced former FBI chief skates on leaking charges ... Here’s how Comey got away with it: DOJ Inspector Gen Michael Horowitz referred Comey for potential prosecution as part of an internal review. However, apparently one of the key factors leading to the DOJ declining to prosecute was the fact that the two memos were labeled “confidential” after he set in motion the chain of events that led to them ending up with the press. According to the DOJ despite not having to legally atone for his actions, Comey may face some retribution in the public sector as Horowitz’s report is set to be released “imminently.”
