Washington — Former national security adviser John Bolton knocked President Trump on Sunday for his criticism of his onetime adviser's comment on North Korea abandoning its nuclear weapons, saying the president would be "better off" if he learned a "little history."

During an interview on "Face the Nation," Bolton was asked about a comment he made on the program in April 2018, in which he said it was a requirement for Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons in negotiations with the U.S. and cited Libya's decision to abandon its nuclear program in 2003. Mr. Trump went on to tell Fox News in an interview last month that Bolton's invocation of the Libya model was "one of the dumbest things I've ever seen on television."

One Ivy League school is trimming some overgrown racist vines.

Princeton University will remove the name of former U.S. president Woodrow Wilson from one of its buildings due to his “racist thinking and policies.”

“On my recommendation, the board voted to change the names of both the School of Public and International Affairs and Wilson College,” university president Christopher Eisgruber announced on Friday. “The trustees concluded that Woodrow Wilson’s racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school or college whose scholars, students and alumni must stand firmly against racism in all its forms.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden voted to protect the tax-exempt status of privately-owned and operated segregated schools while serving in Congress.

As a second-term United States senator from Delaware in 1979, Biden voted against revoking the “Dorian rider,” a legislative provision that prevented the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from rescinding the tax-exempt status of private segregated academies. Such schools were founded in the wake of the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision, which found unconstitutional “separate but equal” public educational institutions that segregated by race.

Since the death of George Floyd, “systemic racism” has become the topic du jour. I certainly believe America’s public schools have a systemic problem: education monopolization.

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A Baltimore County family is warning other parents after they say police were called to their house over something that happened during a virtual school lesson.
