The mainstream press recently made Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James into a God-like figure for “building a school” for at-risk youth in Akron, OH.
“‘I Promise’ will eventually cost about $8 million a year to run out of the district’s regular budget, covered mostly by shifting students, teachers and money from other schools, the district says,” according to Cleveland.com.
“I Promise” is the name of “James'” school.
This is not to knock James, who is donating $2 million to the fund the school, and without whom the “school would have never happened,” according to district Treasurer Ryan Pendleton.
Rather, this is about the press, who left out the minor detail that over the course of the school’s existence, a majority of the bill will be footed by Akron taxpayers.
According to Cleveland.com:
I Promise is a district school. It’s not a private school or even a charter school, a form of public schools that are funded with tax dollars but are privately-run.
Though James will have a huge influence on the school, I Promise will be run by the district. It’s a district-owned building. The district will hire and pay the teachers and administration. Kids will ride district buses to school. And they will all eat the free breakfast and lunch the district gives all students.
I Promise will eventually cost about $8 million a year to run out of the district’s regular budget, covered mostly by shifting students, teachers and money from other schools, the district says.
“He did a lot, but taxpayers should know it’s their investment too,” said district spokesman Mark Williamson. “The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his.”
Now why would the media do that?
Likely because James has an ongoing feud with the right-wing media, including Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, who infamously told him to “shut up and dribble” on her nightly program, and President Donald J. Trump, who bashed James and CNN host Don Lemon on Twitter.
“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Trump wrote.

The attack was immediately deemed “racist,” though Trump said “I like Mike” in a reference to Michael Jordan.
The leftist-dominated mainstream press is conniving. They understand that politics is downstream from culture. By vilifying Trump, which they do on a daily basis, and elevating James, they win political capital for Democrats, which is their intended goal.
That is why they failed to report that most of “James'” new school will be funded by the taxpayer, like every other poorly-run inner-city public school in America.
50-Year-Old Transgender ‘Woman’ is Hailed as a Hero for Joining a Female College Basketball Team
This is mass insanity.
A 50-year-old transgender “woman” is being hailed as a hero for joining a female college basketball team and playing alongside girls under half “her” age.
Gabrielle Ludwig, born Robert Ludwig before “she” had a sex change in July 2012, is being allowed to play college basketball for the Mission College (Calif.) women’s basketball team. She is being called a brave trailblazer and receiving gushing profiles from the fake news media for engaging in this bizarre and troubling spectacle.
The nauseating USA Today profile on Ludwig reads as follows:
“Come out and be Gabrielle the player,” head coach Corey Cafferata tells her. “You worked hard to get here. This damn team in here, everyone has your back!”
Ludwig nervously runs her hand over the sock approaching the tattoo on her leg. She has long been eager yet apprehensive about this moment. Can she still play? What will she hear from adults in the stands? What will her opponents on the court whisper? And can she keep her emotions in check? Glancing up from the dirty rug, she says she is calm. She didn’t know if this day could ever arrive: Tonight, before spectators who will cheer and curse her, she hits the reset button on her life.
The profile noted (surprise, surprise) that Ludwig has a history of mental illness that includes “one failed suicide attempt, two failed marriages” and went into how Ludwig was taking hormones behind his wife’s back. His own daughter refuses to coddle his delusions.
They also noted that a female referee refused to shake Ludwig’s hand and many people gawk at Ludwig while “she” is engaging in this humiliating and demeaning spectacle. Even though LGBT insanity is being pushed on Americans, they still instinctively know this is unnatural and wrong.
The USA Today profile concludes:
With her knee wrapped, Ludwig pulls her car out of the dark parking lot and begins the drive back to Fremont to spend time with her partner and take an online quiz for her music course. Even in defeat, even when told of remarks of the two Siskiyous spectators, she says she has never been happier.
“I found a home with a bunch of dysfunctional lesbians, one deaf kid and a transsexual woman,” she says, laughing. “This is my home. This is the team I fit in. I am that missing puzzle piece. It fits.”
When Ludwig looks in the mirror she sees a father, a maternal figure, a veteran, a scientist, a life partner, and something she has been waiting more than three decades to say again: a teammate.
“Through camaraderie, we kind of figure out where the hell we are in life … ” Ludwig says. “We as human beings, we just want to be loved.”
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” a reporter asks.
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” Ludwig says. “Gone.”
She pauses for a few seconds, takes a deep breath and softens and slows her voice as her eyes remain glassy.
“Robert Ludwig is gone,” she says. “And the person you have is Gabrielle Ludwig with everything Robert embodied and was … That person [Robert] should be honored. He was a great guy. Robert is gone. He was a great father. His spirit is still here. It’s just that the spirit matches the body, as it should be.”
This is the new morality that is replacing Christianity in the former land of the free. America is in a death spiral that is showing no signs of slowing down with the military installation of Biden as president.
