    The South Carolina school district involved in a legal battle with a student who says she was accosted for not saying the Pledge of Allegiance has contradicted the student's claims. Ninth-grade student Marissa Barnwell says she was pushed by a River Bluff High School teacher when she didn't stop to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Barnwell says she was walking quietly in a hallway when the teacher allegedly yelled at her. "I was completely and utterly disrespected," the 15-year-old said. "No one has apologized, no one has acknowledged my hurt." An attorney representing Lexington School District 1 says that surveillance...

    Newly-elected Miami-Dade Commissioner Sabine Covo, who Florida Democrats have praised as being not only the future of their political party but as the first win for them in taking back the state, does not know the Pledge of Allegiance. During a March 9 County Commission meeting, Commissioner Covo was asked to recite the Pledge. "Commissioner Covo, could you lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance, please," asked someone within the Commission "You don't know it? Ok," responded the same official to Covo, who could not be heard to answer the first question about reciting the Pledge.

    An organizational meeting of the House Judiciary Committee turned into a bitter debate over a proposed amendment to committee rules that would require the recitation of the pledge of allegiance at the beginning of committee meetings, allowing members to bring in constituents to lead it if they wish. The amendment, put forth by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., was met with a challenge and another amendment by Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., who said anyone who supported an insurrection against the United States should be barred from leading the pledge. .. Several Republicans were dismayed that the matter was being debated at...

    A Colorado Mayor unilaterally banned the Pledge of Allegiance at city meetings. In an immediate show of defiance, members of the public and the Board of Trustees almost immediately stood and recited it anyhow as the Mayor threatened to call everyone out of order. Mayor Shane Fuhrman made this decision without approval from the Board. The elected officials previously discussed and rejected the idea but the Mayor pushed his anti-Pledge agenda anyhow.

    Shane Fuhrman cites ‘threats’ and ‘divisiveness’ as reasons, but gives no further explanation.. The mayor of Silverton suspended recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance at town meetings Monday, saying the pledge has led to threats and community divisiveness. “Due to direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of public meetings, and the general divisiveness this is creating in our community, we will not be doing the Pledge of Allegiance during town of Silverton board of trustee meetings,” said Mayor Shane Fuhrman during Monday’s town board meeting. “And it’s removed from agendas and our protocols until such time that...
  • “One Nation Under Allah”?

    Recently, a student of Justice High School in Fairfax, Virginia led the graduation ceremony in the Pledge of Allegiance. In this public school setting, when she got to the part about “one nation under God,” she said, instead, “one nation under Allah.” This was apparently without any permission from school officials.The idea of “one nation under Allah” is a natural outgrowth of the idea of “multi-culturalism,” but is inconsistent with our history. It is true that in some Muslim-dominant nations, Christians there use the name “Allah” for God. But it’s also true that the Allah of the Qu’ran is different...

He added that his proposal to start each session with the Pledge of Allegiance was simply an effort to “unify the country” and “celebrate patriotism.”

    Democratic presidential nominee former Vice-President Joe Biden rebuffed charges that his proposed policies are "socialist" by pointing out that "I beat the socialist in the primary. After my South Carolina primary win drove all the other candidates from the race it was one-on-one between me and Bernie. I whipped him good." "You know, never once have I read the term socialist or socialism off the teleprompter I use to make my campaign speeches and answer interview questions," the Candidate recalled. "I think the absence of those words pretty definitively proves I'm not a socialist. As for the allegation that I...

    Joe Biden appeared to deliver a version of the Pledge of Allegiance during his campaign speech in Wisconsin Monday that left many a viewer baffled. Was it yet another ‘gaffe’ by the former Vice President as the first presidential debate against Donald Trump looms in one week? Biden began by stealing a similar line to his old boss, Barack Obama, regarding his disregard for ‘red states’ or ‘blue states.’ “[President Trump] has a deeply flawed and divisive view of the United States, this nation, and the job he holds,” declared Biden . “I don’t see the presidency that way. I...

    2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden screwed up the Pledge of Allegiance Monday during a campaign speech in Wisconsin. “I pledge allegiance to the United States of America, one nation, indivisible, under God, for real,” Biden said. Biden’s Monday slip-up marks the second campaign gaffe this week after the former vice president wrongly claimed 200 million had perished from the novel Wuhan coronavirus, when in fact at the time of the address the number of Americans lost from the virus was nearly 200,000.

    The official meeting of the Republican National Convention (RNC) delegates Monday morning emphasized the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance after a committee and a caucus meeting omitted the words from the pledge during the Democratic National Convention (DNC). The omission of “under God” from the two relatively minor events sparked a backlash from Republicans, including President Trump, and a flurry of fact-checks pointing out that in the four major broadcasts each night Democrats did use the words “under God.” But Republicans have still said the omission by the individual speakers — there was no party directive on...

    Democrats opening at least two caucus meetings during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) cut “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance, according to videos captured by CBN News’s David Brody. Both the Muslim Caucus meeting and the LGBT Caucus meeting began with truncated versions of the pledge. “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” delegate A.J. Durrani said, opening the DNC’s “Muslim Delegates Assembly.”According to Brody, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and DNC Chairman...

    A Democratic politician in New Hampshire changed the Pledge of Allegiance during a recent meeting, saying “and justice for some” rather than “justice for all.” As reported by WMUR, Executive Councilor Debora Pignatelli was lambasted by Republicans when she made the change during a council meeting last week. . . . Other councilors and Gov. Chris Sununu said the Pledge correctly during a Wednesday meeting, but Pignatelli was heard saying at the end of it, “…with liberty and justice for some.” “I don’t say it all the time, but it has been clear to me since this coronavirus has started...

    Twitter videos at link. Thousands of freedom-loving Virginians are gathered in Richmond Monday morning to lobby the state government in support of the Second Amendment. Virginia’s state legislature has proposed a number of unconstitutional gun control bills that would impede on these sacred, enumerated rights given to Americans in the Second Amendment. ~snip~ Mainstream outlets are covering this protest as civil disobedience, despite framing other demonstrations led by liberal causes as patriotic. NBC’s Gabe Gutierrez blatantly lied about what was occurring during the protest this morning; attendees joined together to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but Gutierrez claimed that they...

    The summer season has ripped off the thin scab that covered an American wound, revealing a festering disagreement about the nature and origins of the United States. The San Francisco Board of Education recently voted to paint over, and thus destroy, a 1,600-square-foot mural of George Washington's life in San Francisco's George Washington High School. Victor Arnautoff, a communist Russian-American artist and Stanford University art professor, had painted "Life of Washington" in 1936, commissioned by the New Deal's Works Progress Administration. A community task force appointed by the school district had recommended that the board address student and parent objections...

    A Minnesota City Council in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district abruptly reversed course Tuesday; reinstating the Pledge of Allegiance after dropping the patriotic oath from their meetings weeks ago. “A Minnesota city council on Monday reportedly agreed to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance at meetings, weeks after the group sparked a widespread — and high-reaching — backlash by removing the pledge’s recital,” reports Fox News. “I’ve concluded that I made a mistake and I’m sorry and I’m asking for forgiveness,” city council member Steve Hallifan said

    The cancer of political correctness has reared its ugly head once again. This time the plague struck a Minnesota town, where the local council voted unanimously to drop the pledge of allegiance to be more inclusive. St. Louis Park wants to be more welcoming to newcomers and non-citizens and they decided the best way to do that was to trash a hallmark tradition. To be more welcoming to non-citizens, Americans just need to…not act like Americans. It’s this nonsense that gives me hope, along with the booming economy, that Trump will easily clinch a second term. It’s also partially why...
