  • Dem Rep. Swalwell: America Parents ‘Lying to Their Kids’ by Telling Them They Are Safe at School

    Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that American parents are lying to their children by telling them they will be safe from mass shootings at school. Swalwell said, “The public is with us, and parents want us on offense. Look at Republicans, they go on offense on wildly unpopular issues like a woman’s right to choose, and they don’t care about public sentiment. They lean in on that. Instead, we are always, always apologizing about, well, we’re not trying to infringe on the 2nd Amendment. We’re not saying gun control. Why don’t we just have guns disciplined...
  • Embryo-Dumping Fertility Industry Is Panicked Over The Potential Overturn Of Roe V. Wade

    The likely overturning of Roe v. Wade has panicked many reproductive technology advocates, specifically the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. When abortion policy is decided by individual states, personhood laws such as Louisiana’s Human Life Protection Act and Texas’s Heartbeat Act could immediately criminalize many aspects of Big Fertility’s business model. That’s because destroying human life is part and parcel of in vitro fertilization (IVF). The violation of lab-created children’s right to life begins in the petri dish. First, IVF often involves the preimplantation screening of 6 or 7 day old blastocysts (early embryos), to not only determine the likelihood...

    A draft version of the infamous letter the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent to President Biden likening angry parents to domestic terrorists even asked for the Army National Guard and the military police to be sent in to certain districts. 'We ask that the Army National Guard and its Military Police be deployed to certain school districts and related events where students and school personnel have been subjected to acts and threats of violence,' the draft letter, which was later amended, read, according to an independent review of the letter. The NSBA originally sent a letter to Biden in...

    We should stopping pushing 5-year-olds onto ADHD medication and start pushing them to get outside and play.My patient was struggling in the classroom and at home. His teacher complained that he couldn’t complete his math worksheets without frequent interventions to refocus him. His parents were tired of the nightly struggle to get him to sit still long enough to finish his homework. The Vanderbilt forms confirmed what everyone already knew: a classic case of ADHD. I filled out a letter for parents to give the school to start the formal process of getting him special classroom accommodations (extra time on...

    Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) introduced an amendment to the “Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act” that would protect concerned parents speaking at school board meetings from becoming federal domestic terrorism targets. The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act is a Democrat bill that “would codify the process by which the Biden administration came to investigate parents with whom it has political disagreements.” “Last fall, parents across the United States were accused of being ‘domestic terrorists’ for speaking out against their child’s curriculum,” Green said. “My amendment would have protected parents’ ability to speak up and question harmful curriculum like Critical Race Theory and obscene...

    “He was definitely into video games - shooter games,” a classmate observed about the Buffalo grocery-store mass murderer. A British tabloid reported this truth about the tragic massacre, while liberal American media hid this crucial detail from their one-sided accounts. Classmates confirm his devotion to online streaming video games, but internet trolls quickly shouted down anyone suggesting this link. Even a black former lineman for the Green Bay Packers was forced to delete a tweet pointing out the obvious similarity between what happened in Buffalo and the shooter video games. In a rare split a decade ago between Supreme Court...

    Adults deciding where to settle and raise their families once considered tax rates, job opportunities and housing prices. Now they also have to ask themselves whether they want their children in schools that push gender fluidity, teach masturbation and provide tampons in the boys' room for females transitioning to become males. Several states have already joined Florida in barring teachers from instructing their classes about gender identity and LGBTQ choices, and many are considering similar legislation. Parents are outraged by the indoctrination and sexualization of their children. In Connecticut and New Jersey, school board meetings are overflowing with parents protesting...

    A federal judge is blocking a Kansas public school's policy preventing teachers from outing transgender students to their parents after the teacher raised religious objections. Fort Riley Middle School math teacher Pamela Ricard sued USD 475 Geary County Schools over LGBTQ anti-discrimination policies that conflicted with her Christian beliefs. District Judge Holly Teeter issued a preliminary injunction on Monday blocking the school from disciplining Ricard if she reveals preferred names and pronouns of her transgender students when communicating with their parents. "The Court relies on Plaintiff’s statements that she does not intend to communicate with a parent for the sole...

    WASHINGTON — New rules proposed by the Education Department to govern a federal grant program for charter schools are drawing bipartisan backlash and angering parents, who say the Biden administration is seeking to stymie schools that have fallen out of favor with many Democrats but maintain strong support among Black and Latino families. The proposal would add requirements to the application process for grants from the federal Charter Schools Program, which has doled out billions of dollars over nearly 30 years to help open new charter schools or expand existing ones. It sets tighter restrictions on the schools’ relationships with...

    A couple in the north Indian state of Uttarakhand are suing their only son and his wife for not giving them a grandchild after six years of marriage. Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad, 61 and 57, say they used up their savings raising their son, paying for his pilot's training as well as a lavish wedding. They are demanding compensation worth nearly $650,000 (£525,000) if no grandchild is born within a year. Their son and his wife do not appear to have commented. The highly unusual lawsuit was filed on grounds of "mental harassment".

    An FBI whistleblower has revealed that ‘dozens’ of investigations into parents voicing their opposition to topics ranging from Critical Race Theory to mask mandates were investigated using a “threat tag” created by the agency’s counterterrorism division – directly contradicting Attorney General Merrick Garland’s 2021 testimony denying that the Department of Justice had been weaponized. According to a letter from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Mike Johnson (R-LA), “We now have evidence that contrary to your testimony, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has labeled at least dozens of investigations into parents with a threat tag created by the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division...

    I’ve never considered myself a particularly anxious mother. Maybe that’s why I have five kids. I’ve always understood that life happens, mistakes will be made, things can get messy, and you have to go with the flow. But now I’m faced with the possibility of not being able to feed my infant, and that makes me nervous. In case you haven’t heard the news, there is a baby formula shortage in America. In my wildest dreams, I never could have imagined that parents would be scrambling to find sustenance for their babies in the year 2022 in the United States.But...

    The Biden administration’s new disinformation chief says that parents who are upset about critical race theory (CRT) making its way into public school classrooms are “disinformers” who “weaponize” the issue “for profit.” [Let’s not forget the US Attorney General’s son makes millions selling CRT materials]Nina Jankowicz, who was appointed to lead the newly established Disinformation Governance Board at the Department of Homeland Security, dismissed the pushback against CRT indoctrination at an event in Ohio last October, when the debate over parents’ right to direct their children’s education had taken center stage in high-profile elections, including Virginia’s gubernatorial race. “Critical race...

    Their son may be on TV every night, but the parents of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy have consistently declined countless requests for interviews about their own lives. The rabbi of their hometown of Kryvyi Rih in Ukraine’s east, however, is apparently much more eager to talk about the Zelenskyys, who are Jewish. This week, Rabbi Liron Ederi, the Chabad-Lubavitch movement’s emissary in the city, spoke at length to an Orthodox newspaper in Israel about his ties with Oleksandr and Rymma Zelenskyy, whom the rabbi said have helped him promote at least two Jewish community causes with their son, the president....

California State Senator Connie Leyva made the comment in response to Senator Melissa Melendez's speech on Wednesday in support of her bill, SB-1045 which is aimed at making public school curriculum available for parents to view easily.

    At the 2022 Teacher of the Year ceremony hosted by the White House on Wednesday, President Biden claimed that school children don’t belong to parents “when they’re in the classroom.” “They’re all our children. And the reason you’re the teachers of the year is because you recognize that. They’re not somebody else’s children. They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom,” he said. Later in the speech, Biden targeted Republicans and the parent movements in local school districts that have fought to remove from libraries and curricula books that promote radical gender and racial ideologies. “There are too many politicians...

    If a face can launch a thousand ships, then the masked faces of K-12 schoolchildren should launch a thousand class action lawsuits for developmental disabilities, educational loss, and emotional and psychological damages since 2020. Even if those lawsuits are a longshot, however, Covid bullying has at least launched thousands of parents into action. Remote teaching has given them a window into the increasingly ideological lessons funded by their tax dollars. Parents are therefore seeking not only educational alternatives for their children but political alternatives to the enablers of the status quo. This is happening not only in local school board...

    Khulia Pringle would seem an unlikely critic of the local Minneapolis Federation of Teachers. The St. Paul native embarked on a teaching career in the hope of improving a school system that she saw as failing her daughter. By the time she finished her training in 2014, she had grown so disillusioned with the public school system that she took a job with an education reform group, helping to recruit and place hundreds of tutors in schools across the state. While she shares the union’s emphasis on pushing for higher pay and smaller classrooms, the self-described liberal education activist says...

    If you think pierced mutants with blue hair and gender confusion have some sort of right to leverage their position as public school teachers to groom your kids with racist Marxism and sexual confusion, you hate democracy. Schools were not established so that narcissistic stange-os with galaxy-sized daddy issues could work out their personal psychodramas using our children’s minds as props. They were established to teach our kids to read, write, do some math, and be useful citizens. And that’s what we, the People, want. And we, the People, get to make the decision about what gets taught in our...

    Nikole Hannah-Jones, 1619 Project creator and professor, said Wednesday on the CNN+ show “Who’s Talking” that parents were wrong when they complained about her work claiming America was founded as a racist country. Wallace said, “What’s your response when people say that you’re saying the country’s racist and that this is a central part and making us feel, making them, kids, feel bad about it. Are you saying parents are wrong?”
