Parents Are on Fire and Are Fighting Back

Published

on

They are not just waging war in Ukraine. Parents around this country have started to unite and send a message to the rest of America—“We’ve had enough of Biden’s America. We are mad as hell, and we’re fighting back!” One of the major fronts for that battle is our schools! Parents are fighting mad at what is happening to their children.,



While Biden is trying to appease his far left progressives, he’s angered one of the largest and most powerful interest groups in this country—Parents! In fact, democrats seem to be doing everything they can to turn them into rabid conservatives. The evidence of their impact is growing.



Governor Youngkin’s surprise victory in Virginia was driven by an optimistic campaign fueled by his rock-solid belief in American exceptionalism and opportunity. He also promised to stand with parents who wanted more school choice and an end to any form of Critical Race Theory curriculum in Virginia schools. Parents applauded Youngkin’s policy priorities, and they helped secure his victory.



In many states, teacher unions are the biggest supporters of democrat candidates. Parents are beginning to realize that their “interest” group is far more interested in themselves than they are of the children they teach. The more teachers resist opening schools and support CRT propaganda, the more parents are turning from the candidates they support.



Concerned parent Brian Echevarria, appearing before the Cabarrus County Schools Board of Education, made an impassioned defense of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr’s belief that people ought to be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. His words have rallied parents across the country for a stronger voice:



“I’m bi-racial, I’m bilingual, I’m multicultural. The fact is in America and North Carolina, I can do anything I want, and I teach that to my children. And the person who tells my little pecan-color kids that they’re somehow oppressed based on the color of their skin would be absolutely wrong and absolutely at war with me. And I think that’s the same for every parent. What the mask showed us is that the parents are the most powerful group of people in our country and that they’re taking back the wheel.”



As we near the mid-term elections, more and more democrats should be concerned. Minority and female parents have been the backbone of the democrat voter base. But parents have a much bigger commitment to their children than to Joe Biden and his progressive priorities. When you mess with their children’s education, caring parents mobilize to defend and protect their young.



Parents are seeing the cost of Biden’s decisions. The policies and mandates introduced to deal with the COVID pandemic are impacting the quality of their children’s education. During this pandemic, kids are falling behind. Virtual classrooms just aren’t as effective. Their children miss their friends and the social interaction that is so necessary for normal development. Suicides are up. Parents want schools to open and stay open!



Even when schools are open, many children are being forced to wear masks. This flies in the face of increasing evidence that masks don’t work. The incidence of COVID in children and teens remains low. Parents are looking at the science and listening to their children. As a result, they are demanding an end to mask mandates.



Parents have learned all they need to know about the Black Lives Matter Critical Race Theory curriculum. No responsible parent of any race wants to send their kids to a school that is telling their kids that whites are systemically privileged and racist. Such programs risk increasing the racial divide and racial animus. We spent decades fighting white racism and must continue to stand against it wherever it surfaces. But now, it is time to fight an emerging black racism in the form of CRT and claims of “white privilege.”



Already, parents are taking on school boards that are refusing to listen to these concerns. Few states are more liberal than California, but even in super progressive San Francisco, parents campaigned against progressive school board members and are winning. School boards better listen or learn the hard way at the next election.



A school choice proposition is gaining ground in California. They hope to give parents the choice in what school their children attend and the public funds to make that happen. Minority parents have seen their children trapped in poorly performing public schools. They desperately want school choice, and the republicans are poised to give it to them.



States are passing laws to ensure parental rights. The Florida House just passed the “Parental Rights in Education Bill” and has sent it to the Florida Senate. The most controversial provision bans the discussions about sexual orientation and gender identity with young children: “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.” Will other states follow their lead?



Parents aren’t happy with their schools and what is happening to their children. They care about their children’s future, and they’re ready to fight and vote for change. When you add the devastating impact of inflation on middle class parents that call for change is growing stronger. Biden’s America is a disaster waiting to be stopped. Furious parents are ready to help do just that. May it be so.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.

Published

on

If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
