UW: George Has Got To Go

(Faith & Freedom) The Black Student Union at the University of Washington wants the statue of President George Washington removed from campus.

The student activists recently rallied against the statue of the nation’s first president, and the namesake of both the state and university where they reside.

The rally, of course, also called for police abolition.

Seattle Pacific University is once again at war with itself over sexual behavior. Once again trying to find its true identity.

American education—public and unfortunately some private and some Christian– has been hi-jacked.

[…]The rally included the typical list of Black Lives Matter and leftist chants. “Hey hey, ho, ho, these racist cops have got to go” and “the people united, will never be divided” filled the air as a  group of students marched through the University of Washington campus.

Students frequently graffiti the statue of George Washington, according to the campus newspaper. In fact, they say it is never without graffiti.  (Read More)

Florida School District Instructs Teachers to Keep Parents in the Dark on Their Children’s Transgender Identity

(RedState) Here’s yet another story about what the left says isn’t happening in America’s classrooms. The Broward County (Florida) Public Schools’ district issued a support guide on LGBTQ students that instructed teachers to conceal details about a child’s transition to another gender from their parents.

The school district’s website features a document titled “Transgender and Nonbinary Student Guidelines and Procedures,” which tells the reader “supporting transgender students and families of transgender youth gives young people in our schools the equal opportunity that all students need.”

The document continues, explaining that “[t]he expression of transgender identity, or any other form of gender-expansive behavior, is a healthy, appropriate and typical aspect of human development.”

Parents Defending Education (PDE), which originally reported on the guide, noted that it defined the term “transgender” as an “umbrella term” that includes “nonbinary, gender expansive, and gender nonconforming youth.”  (Read More)

Creep-fest: 135—Oops, 137—Teachers Arrested for Sex Crimes So Far This Year

(PJ Media) It’s only May 19, and Fox News is reporting that at least 135 teachers and teachers’ aides have been arrested for sex crimes involving children this year. The crimes range from child pornography to rape. These are just the reported crimes. If a principal or school district wanted to hide a sexual predator, as they did in Loudoun County, Va,, when a transgender kid in a skirt anally raped a 14-year-old girl, they often can.

Oops, I just found two more arrests that weren’t reported until Fox News released their report. That’s a total of 137 pedophiles arrested. Of those apprehended, 105 107 are men and 30 are women.

Some of the arrestees:

Anessa Paige Gower was fired from Making Waves Academy, which only accepts students via lottery, after victims began to come forward. Prosecutors are charging her with 29 counts involving sex acts with a minor, inappropriate touching, and sharing sexually graphic photographs over online platforms.  (Read More)

Idaho Senate poised to move to the right, JFAC will look completely different in 2023

(Idaho Capital Sun) Political observers predict the Idaho Legislature will move to the right and become more politically conservative after several establishment Republican incumbent legislators lost their primary election races Tuesday.

Even though Idahoans rejected the more extreme, farther right candidate in four out of five top-of-the-ballot statewide Republican primary races, that pattern did not hold at the local level, as 19 incumbent Republican legislators were defeated in their districts.

Those defeats follow the decisions by several establishment Republican lawmakers to retire or not seek re-election this year.

“At the statewide level, the more establishment, traditional conservative Republicans were successful in most statewide races, with the attorney general’s race (won by former U.S. Rep. Raúl Labrador) being kind of the outlier,” said Boise State University associate professor of political science Jaclyn Kettler.

“But when we move to the Idaho Legislature, we see some of the more conservative candidates being successful,” Kettler said.  (Read More)

The Groomer Controversy: What’s Actually Going on?

(Family Research Council) Last week, PolitiFact wrote the first of what will likely be many articles aimed at quelling the reality that our children are being sexualized in the education and media spaces.

PolitiFact’s “editorial” comes as the metaphorical dam is bursting with revelations that children have been intentionally targeted and exposed to graphic sexual material. Some of the groups advocating for children to be “educated” with these graphic sexual details and transgender identities are hoping that these materials will be accessible to kindergarteners and younger if given the opportunity.

To name a few examples, we’ve learned that our school libraries are filled with books like My Body is Growing: A Guide for Children, Ages 4 to 8, which is embarrassingly detailed about a sexual encounter between an older sister with her younger brother. We’ve also learned that there is a concerted effort by Netflix and Disney to expose children to sexual content and ideas. This goes without mentioning the explicit content available on social media. After one click, an algorithm can be set, and a minor’s social account is on a course to receive unlimited pornographic material. Sadly, these avenues of exposure have been sanctioned and blessed by the current federal and some state governments.  (Read More)

Republicans See Large Increase in Idaho Primary Turnout as Democrat Numbers Dropped Significantly

(Idaho Dispatch) The number of Republican voters from the 2022 primary election compared to the 2018 primary was much higher, while Democrats saw a drop in turnout.

In 2018, Republicans had a turnout of approximately 194,000 voters for the primary. This year, turnout for Republicans hit over 280,000 voters.

Several factors could have led to the increase in Republican turnout.

First, Idaho’s population continues to grow rapidly, increasing the number of voters in the state. Second, the number of groups who spent large amounts of money for the primary election was higher than in previous primary elections. Additionally, some crossover voters from the Democrat party and new voters who were previously unaffiliated and changed to Republican account for some of the increase.

Democrats, in comparison, had a turnout of approximately 66,000 voters in 2018, but less than half that number voted this year, with just 31,000 voters.  (Read More)

Biden Admin: K-12 Schools Must Put Boys In Girls’ Bathrooms To Get Federal Lunch Money

(The Federalist) K-12 schools must allow boys into girls’ private areas to obtain federal funds for lunches, breakfasts, and snacks, the Biden administration announced this month. A U.S. Department of Education spokesman told The Federalist the Biden administration’s press releases from several agencies announcing this policy will be followed by formal rulemaking in June.

“It seems to be playing politics with feeding poor kids, which is really unfortunate,” John Elcesser, executive director of the Indiana Non-Public Education Association, said via phone amid weeks of attempting to sort out these new demands with government officials on behalf of private schools in his state. “Because if a school feels like they cannot participate because it’s in conflict with their mission or values, if a religious exemption is not granted, you’re taking away a program that’s feeding low-income kids.”  (Read More)

Media Employs Shame-Old Tactics against Ky. Christian School

(Family Research Council) Is the outrage feigned or uninformed? That’s one question after the Louisville Courier Journal declared they were shocked — shocked — to discover Christian teaching at the Christian Academy of Louisville (CAL). While the school received no complaints, a Twitter user reportedly acquainted with a parent whose child was upset by the assignment tweeted screenshots with the commentary “Shameful. #stopthehate.”

“With the attention… even the language surrounding it,” said David Closson, director of the Family Research Council’s Center for Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council on “Washington Watch,” “you would think that this is something nefarious, some sort of bombshell.” Instead, it’s simply “a Christian school, in an elective Bible class, encouraging their students to think about what God’s word says on the issue of homosexuality,” he said. “Newsflash for those who are really going crazy about this: this is what Christians have believed for 2,000 years.”

Middle schoolers were instructed to “write a letter to a friend of your same gender who is struggling with homosexuality,” assuming not a casual acquaintance but a close friend. “The aim of your letter should be to lovingly and compassionately speak truth to the person you’re talking to in a way that does not approve of any sin. Instead, TRY TO PERSUADE THEM OF THE GOODNESS OF GOD’S DESIGN for them.”  (Read More)

Liberating The Children?

(Faith & Freedom) The New York Post ran a story yesterday alerting parents and people who love kids that a new public school curriculum that glorifies Alexandra Ocasio Cortez and her far-left “squad” knocks religion, misquotes and misuses Jesus, and mocks Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and is already being distributed to libraries in advance of its reveal in public classrooms this fall.

The book titled, “What You Don’t Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood” is the first of a menu of similar materials categorized as “Universal Mosaic Curriculum.”

The book is intended for 10 and 11-year-olds according to The Post.

The book, “What You Don’t Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood,” and its related materials, is supposed to kick off next school year. (Read More)

Parent uncovers secret-keeping school policy in Show Me State

(American Family News) Andy Wells, who leads the Missouri chapter of No Left Turn in Education, is demanding answers after learning public schools are hiding behind a state-approved policy that allows teachers and counselors to hide private conversations with students from their nosy parents.

Wells, who has three children in public schools, tells AFN school counselors and teachers have personally admitted to him the policy is real and they are hiding behind it. The reason, they told him, is to create a “safe space” at school in case the home environment is not.

“That’s my problem,” he says, “(because) when educators start taking away my parental rights to raise my child, I have issues.”

Much like Wells, parents of public school students across the U.S. are learning – quite belatedly – that taxpayer-funded classrooms have been taken over by far-left teachers. Much like a student of Marxism, those teachers view right-wing parents as literal enemies of progress, or at least their twisted view of progress, and the teacher is determined to win over the mind of students despite disapproving parents.  (Read More)

Klaus Schwab: “Globalism Will Bring Salvation”

(Faith & Freedom) Famine, floods, pestilence, drought, plague, war, and rumors of war. These are the key issues facing the world today and the invitation-only World Economic Forum (WEF) next week in Davos, Switzerland. It’s just the place to find the answers by select globalist elites, according to WEF founder Klaus Schwab.

And he says, “Contrary voices will not be tolerated” because of the importance of the meeting.

Of course, the Biden administration will be prominently seated at the table.

Be informed, not misled.  (Read More)

No Matter What Happens To Biden’s ‘Disinformation’ Board, The Feds Are Spying On Americans

(The Federalist) Facing an increasing backlash against the Biden administration’s Disinformation Governing Board (DGB), Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas promised it would not monitor Americans. It was not enough. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security was forced to put the DGB on “pause,” and its director, Nina Jankowicz, resigned under public pressure.

Now DHS says it is “reviewing” the board while “continuing” its “critical work…to address disinformation.”

No matter what happens with the board, it is hard to take Mayorkas’s promise not to monitor Americans seriously. Several recent cases of the federal government spying on Americans as well as DHS’s own actions were certain to make people skeptical.

For example, in February of this year, DHS issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin, a memo prioritizing “false or misleading narratives” as a top domestic security threat. The bulletin states that “there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.”  (Read More)

A Spiritual Battle or Political? Putting on the armor for what is ahead!

(Bob Shillingstad) Have we gone from traditional politics into spiritual warfare that attacks the roots of what has made America the greatest county in the history of the world?  When we talk about “demonic influence” and the spiritual attacks we face today in almost every aspect of our life we are accused of exaggeration or using hyperbole when we bring up the positions of our opposition.   As we look at the issues I believe it is apparent that these are no longer the issues we think are just “political” – taxes, spending, regulations,  etc.  The leftist Democrats have embraced what they call Democratic Socialism, which is essentially Communism.  A key goal of communism is to demoralize societies— to destroy the culture, religion, and basic values of any society it touches.  This goal is laid out clearly in “The Communist Manifesto” in which Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels wrote in 1848 that communism “abolishes all religion, and all morality.”  Communism is Anti-Christ.

Consider the following issues:

1) Abortion on demand up to and including the time of birth. 65 million babies killed since 1973. Sacrifices to the God Moloch were not this horrific. Students, influenced by the teacher’s union, are walking out of their classes to protest the recent overturning Roe v. Wade, this demonic influence is widespread.

2) Not just the acceptance of homosexuality, but the celebration of same sex marriage and sexual practices.  You will be punished if you don’t fall in line with celebrating sin.  Parades that are openly showing nudity and sexuality on our streets are accepted.

3) The grooming of children in our schools and libraries into homosexuality and transgenderism. The books brought into the Coeur d’Alene library, even to pre-schoolers The “drag queen’s dress goes swish, swish” is one such book —remember the “wheels of the bus goes round and round”.  The libraries sponsor “A Rainbow Squad” club to groom children to their perverted philosophy.

4) A rejection of the law in regard to immigration, protest, destroying property and overreach by our government.  The law is meaningless and as the Bible describes the time of the Judges that “everyone did what was right in their own eyes”.  Without restraint and an acceptance to absolute truth we see a society that is out of control. A populace that will accept safety over freedom. That is where BLM and Antifa come in to do the leg work for the Satanic future the Dems are hoping to usher in.  Both groups consider themselves Marxist Revolutionaries and work towards the goal of demoralizing the nation.

5) Dividing the Nation:  With Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project and other programs we are a polarized nation.  Our colleges have segregated dorms and graduations.  We have gone from a nation that was unified to one that identifies by ethnicity and race.  This is part of the plan. Our public schools have revealed themselves indoctrinating young children in racist, anti-American revisions of history and confusing them about their bodies.

We could go on and on with examples that are destroying our families and our country. We ask ourselves, “Is this really happening?”  Millions of concerned Christians are asking this question as they read the headlines day after day.  Living in a willfully, disobedient culture, the biblical prophet Isaiah delivered a word that warns out leaders today: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil…” (Isaiah 5:20)  As Tony Perkins of FRC states,  “The message of Isaiah wasn’t only one of bewilderment, but also of ultimate judgement. People in a free society can choose their own path—and they will answer to God.  We will answer too for how we respond when they come after our children.  We as parents, grandparents, pastors and citizens must stand up.”

Some pastors and citizens make the statement that “I don’t want to get political”.  I understand and there are no perfect parties.  We are faced with three political groups in my opinion – we have the “leftist, radical Democrats,  the “moderates” of both parties that really constitute the “deep state” in Washington and Boise and finally we have the “patriots who see what is happening and willing to take a stand.

We have seen some pastors standing up but for the most part they are AWOL and need to be part of the battle.  I believe we are facing the crowd outside Lot’s house and they will not compromise.  Now is the time to take back the city councils, school boards, county commissions and even our churches as we spread the word of God’s truth and the dangers that will happen to our society and government when we reject it.  The Liberty Pastors network is sponsoring three regional “Liberty Pastors Boot Camps” across the nation.  One will be in Coeur d’Alene October 16-19.  Encourage your pastor to attend!  Got to LibertyPastors.com for more information.

Op-Ed: The 2022 Political Campaign Season the Worst Yet

(Idaho Dispatch) By Christy Zito

Tonight is a little bittersweet for me. I loved being in the legislature for the past six years.

I could serve the people of this state forever. However, I do not believe that is how this beautiful republic of ours is supposed to work. I will continue to serve the people of Idaho on the “outside” and look forward to doing so for years to come.

[…]This election cycle has been so dirty. The lies and deception have been heartbreaking. Those who cannot win on policy have lowered the bar so low they give Washington D.C. politics a run for their money. It’s sad that these candidates, some who may win their races, are asking for our trust based on lies and dirty politics.

To my friends who have campaigned hard and done so honorably, you are already winners. You have kept your integrity. When you face God, I am confident he will say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

To those who engaged in the politics of filth, directly or not, using your own campaign or a Political Action Committee, your hands are not clean. As my aunt Marcetta would say, “Shame on you!”

Candidates who have taken the dirty political road, you have lost your soul.  (Read More)

These Dozen Disney Plus Alternatives Offer Families Options.

(The Federalist) On Wednesday, Disney announced it added only 1.5 million domestic subscribers this spring to its flagship streaming service, with anticipated higher costs in the year ahead. The company’s market value quickly dipped to a two-year low.

Such weak results seem to confirm the power of a movement among conservative parents to “cancel Disney” after surreptitiously recorded remarks by Disney creative executives about their “not-so-secret gay agenda” spread online. Relaying what he has heard from Christian families about those comments, Erick Goss, head of faith-based streamer Minno, called it “a real breach of trust” in a statement.

Adam Holz, director of Focus on the Family’s Plugged In, which provides parental reviews of popular entertainment, said Disney’s embrace of a “progressive agenda” has made some families willing to sacrifice Marvel, Star Wars, and even Disney classics. “We’ve heard from many people who are ready to cut the Mouse House cord, even though it’s still home to some really big franchises,” stated Holz via email. “I say bravo to that.”  (Read More)

In the Face of Church Attacks, a Bold Stand for Truth Emerges

(Family Research Council) As the list of vandalized churches and pro-life organizations continues to grow due to pro-abortion extremist attacks in the wake of the leaked Dobbs Supreme Court decision, the silence from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is becoming increasingly deafening.

“[W]hat Americans expect … out of a Department of Justice is that it’s really supposed to be the place we go to that’s not biased,” he said. “There’s equal application of the law. We remember all the statues and paintings of ‘Justice’ having the blindfold and the scales that we’re trying to hold. … [T]hat’s the essence of what it means to live under the rule of law. And we’re seeing that perverted in a very real way in our country right now and with this government. … [T]he American people are beginning to realize that there’s two sets of justice in our country right now.”

Even so, wherever there is persecution, there is also great opportunity. As FRC President Tony Perkins observed, pastors like Father Peter Harris of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston, Texas are only being emboldened in the face of attacks. “This won’t stop us; it propels us to continue to be witnesses for Christ in the world,” Father Harris said. Perkins echoed his sentiments. “I think that is how we have to say, ‘[L]ook, if they want to target us for our believing that every human being is sacred because they’re created in the image of God, then all right, so be it. But we’re not going to go away. We’re not going to go silent.”  (Read More)

5 Lies Abortion Supporters Spread About Overturning Roe And How To Counter Them

(The Federalist) The pro-abortion machine has been working overtime to churn out lies about preborn babies and laws designed to protect them. Just Wednesday, after a bipartisan majority in the U.S. Senate defeated the legislature’s most radical abortion bill in history, pro-aborts on Capitol Hill and in the corporate media were declaring that “Republicans” (in fact a bipartisan majority that included Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin) had used the “filibuster” (rather than a simple 51-49 vote) to defeat the bill.

The lying started more than 50 years ago with Norma McCorvey of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. McCorvey later admitted “she had fabricated her account of being raped by three men and a woman in 1969 because she had hoped to circumvent a 100-year-old Texas law that banned abortions except when the woman’s life was in danger,” as The New York Times reported.

Here are five of many more Roe lies to be aware of, along with ways to counter them.  (Read More)

The First Rule of Gay Club Is You DO NOT Talk About Gay Club! Groomer Teachers Plot on Zoom

(PJ Media) The groomer teachers just will not stop trying to indoctrinate your kids into the rainbow cult behind your back. It’s amazing to me that they object to the term “groomer” and then actively plot to have secrets with children about sexuality. It is the definition of “grooming.” Christina Buttons, who calls herself a “reformed SJW,” has footage of a leaked Zoom call between teachers that was organized by GenderInClassrooms.com. This website purports to be “created by teachers for teachers” and “dedicated to equipping educators with the tools they need to foster safe, welcoming gender-inclusive classrooms.”

One of the things that the Gender Woo-Woo cult likes to do is create Gay/Straight Alliance clubs in school that sound like support groups but are actually Gender Woo-Woo indoctrination clubs. This is where kids will be told that girls can be boys, pronouns like “fish-self” are valid identities, and genital mutilation surgery and drugs are the answer to gender dysphoria. And they know they’re being deceptive because they say it outright. In the following clip, the website’s co-founder Kieren Slattery says, “Something I do say to students and caregivers, though I mostly say it to students … I don’t ever tell anyone else who came [to gay club], so I would never tell their adults or other students in the school or even other teachers.”  (Read More)

BUSTED: Counselor Who Organized School Drag Show Arrested for Having Sex with 15-Year-Old Student

(Townhall) Teachers have taken on a God-like complex, voicing their opinions on TikTok, which are unhinged, to say the least. They believe parents don’t have rights in the school. Oh, and they don’t care about their concerns. Remember, they believe they’re right, so they can do whatever they want.

That’s not how this works.

Education now is soaked in woke nonsense. Teachers want to make all the students either gay or trans. We have Black Lives Matter propaganda all over the place. It’s not popular. The only thing that came out of Disney and Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill is that the company lost tens of billions trying to take on Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The reality is that the bill, which never mentions the word “gay,” is popular. Yes, teachers shouldn’t be talking about gender identity and other sexually explicit material. They are the folks LEAST qualified to have such discussions.

Now, we have some counselor in Arizona who organized a drag show at her school being busted for having sex with a 15-year-old student.  (Read More)

‘Supply Chain Disruptions’ Are Not An Accident, They’re The Logical Result Of Stupid Lockdowns

(The Federalist) In Joe Biden’s painful and inaccurate speech about inflation on Tuesday, he finally shifted from blaming racism for everything to blaming Covid for everything to now blaming “the supply chain” and “Mr. Putin’s war in Ukraine” (that Biden baited Putin into) for everything.

These “supply chain disruptions,” as everyone is painfully aware, are doing everything from starving babies to shooting up the price of everything, as Wednesday’s 8.3 percent annual inflation number affirmed again. They are also not random, and they’re not a virus’s fault. They’re the direct and foreseeable consequence of ill-advised global lockdowns that nearly all of our nation’s political leaders refused to take into account when they and corporate media colluded to gaslight the world into accepting them.

Our historic “supply chain problems” are not the result of happenstance. They are the result of cowardly, ignorant, and just plain malevolent leadership throughout the entire Covid era.  (Read More)

Pro-Abortion ‘Summer of Rage’ Already Turns Violent

(Townhall) After pro-abortion organizers promised a “Summer of Rage” packed with hate-fueled protests if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the 2020-esque demonstrations have already turned violent on day one of the campaign beyond shouting matches between the opposing sides. The culprits are the usual suspects.

Over the weekend in Boise, Idaho, an abortion activist at a Planned Parenthood protest was arrested for allegedly kicking a police officer and an organizer of a separate pro-abortion rally without a permit was taken into police custody for allegedly resisting law enforcement.

Pro-abortion advocates protested Saturday at the Idaho Statehouse where the Boise Police Department and Idaho State Police were present monitoring the planned demonstration. The Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates led the city’s “Bans Off Our Bodies” rally as part of a nationwide “Day of Action” that spread to liberal strongholds across America.  (Read More)

Target’s Aisle of Denial

(Family Research Council) No parent ever thinks it will happen to them. One day, they wake up and their son or daughter is just gone — lost to a world they never saw coming. Some parents have said it’s like living in a horror film or screaming through a nightmare they can’t wake up from. Years later, when their children come to regret it — the cut and scarred bodies, the unfamiliar faces, the knowledge they can’t have babies of their own — they’ll wonder about the strangers who sold them these lies. The people in corporate board rooms, behind movie cameras, or stocking shelves who told them the way to get noticed and valued was to be someone else. The soulless companies like Target, who don’t care if your son or daughter is next.

“It’s in the schools. It’s online. It’s in cartoons and media. It’s in the medical system.” Dads like Brenton Netz try to tick off all of the places parents should be on guard for transgender indoctrination. In the end, he settles for: “It’s everywhere.” Target stores seem intent on proving his point, filling its racks with one invitation after another for young people to reject the bodies God gave them — chest binders to strap down breasts, compression underwear for boys, or “packing underwear” with a bulge for girls. There are t-shirts with pronouns, baby onesies with “My First Pride,” and toddler tie-dyes that declare “Trans Rights Are Human Rights.”  (Read More)

Abortion and the Doubled Minded “Christian Left”

(Faith & Freedom) Rev. Adam Russell Taylor, the new president of Sojourners and successor to founder Rev. Jim Wallis, is explaining this week how the apparent decision the Supreme Court has made regarding Roe v Wade is “deeply flawed and alarming” because “As a Christian, I believe we must protect the rights of women and pregnant people to make their own reproductive health decisions.”

Double-minded.

F. LaGard Smith, a retired law professor from Pepperdine University, author, and an old friend asks, “How can it be that, if a mother wants her baby, then it is a person, and the law will protect it against the world; but if a mother doesn’t want the baby, then it’s not a person, and the mother can do with it as she pleases?”

A confused public.

A Rasmussen Survey published yesterday reflects the confusion in our culture over “a woman’s right to choose.”  (Read More)

Leftists Church and Destroy in Roe Rampage

(Family Research Council) When Joe Biden stepped in front of the press pool this morning, there was one inflation he didn’t address: the inflation of violence. Since last week’s stunner of a SCOTUS leak, the only thing that hasn’t shocked America is the Left’s crazed response. With their usual disregard for people’s dignity, privacy, and property, pro-abortion radicals have been on the march from New York to California, burning, spray-painting, and bull-horning their way through the country — reminding everyone that the only kind of “protests” they understand are the dangerous ones.

“I was in disbelief,” said Becky Sheetz, CEO of Life First, one of the nonprofit pregnancy care centers that was targeted by abortion zealots this past weekend. “If the intention was intimidation,” she insisted, “it was not successful.”

Messages like “Liars,” “Fake Clinic,” and “Abortion is a Right” were graffitied across the charity’s brick walls in Manassas, prompting even Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares (R) to weigh in with a stern message for the Leftists responsible. “It is never acceptable to resort to intimidation, vandalism, or destruction in our political discourse,” he declared.  (Read More)

Parents Should Never Let Children Have Unsupervised Internet Access, Period — And That Means No Cell Phone

(The Federalist) Children are using their parent-enabled internet access almost exclusively to waste their lives, not to learn how to play the cello or code. Worse, some are doing online strip-teases for cash.

I made a huge mistake this week: I allowed my children to click onto the next video in YouTube after they watched a classic cartoon for their weekly movie night. My eight-year-old son came running out three minutes after asking permission to watch what my kids thought was another clip from the same series, telling me my kids had stopped the video after it “showed some stuff for grownups.”

I immediately remembered that sickos embed porn and grooming into YouTube cartoons (as well as online children’s games), and I worked to keep my face and voice light and calm while figuring out exactly what my children had seen so I could do as much damage control as possible. Thankfully, it turned out to be merely a fast-paced cartoon-violence segment that alarmed my sensitive four-year-old.  (Read More)
