Team Biden Joins the School Library Wars, Launching Federal Investigation

(Washington Stand) “Whoever succeeds in telling the stories to the children gets to control the future.” That was Kirk Cameron’s answer to people wondering why he’s joined the debate over America’s libraries. As parents everywhere fight to keep graphic content out of their children’s hands, Texas officials are warning the battle is taking an ominous turn. It’s not just the forces of the Left that communities will have to contend with. It’s the federal government, whose new investigation into a local school district could upend every grassroots effort to protect kids.

For leaders in Texas’s Granbury School District, the bomb dropped shortly before Christmas. Officials in the Civil Rights Division of Biden’s Department of Education (DOE) said they’d received a formal complaint from the ACLU that the small community outside Fort Worth was somehow violating the government’s definition of “sex” by pulling books from school library shelves.

The ACLU’s beef dates back to November 2021 when Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) urged the state’s association of school boards to “ensure no child is exposed to pornography or other inappropriate content in a Texas public school.” His letter, which keyed off parents’ growing outrage about the material on school shelves, insisted on greater transparency about the content students can access. Abbott said his office had been contacted by a number of moms and dads who were “rightfully angry” about the “pornographic and obscene” content.  (Read More)

Study: The Case for Pediatric Gender Transitioning Is Built on Lies

(PJ Media) The transgender cult may be the most dangerous threat targeting today’s youth. Sadly, there are forces willing to go to extreme lengths to justify the barbaric brainwashing of kids.

In fact, it turns out that two famous Dutch studies that were the foundation of modern gender medicine are complete trash.

Last week, a group of American doctors published a paper criticizing the two studies that are considered the foundation of current pediatric gender medicine. These studies claim to have determined that patients’ mental health improved after they underwent gender transition procedures when, in reality, the methodology and conclusions of those studies were deeply flawed.

According to the new study, the widely-cited Dutch studies, which were published in 2011 and 2015 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine and Pediatrics, systematically excluded the experiences of participants who dropped out of the studies over time, creating a bias in favor of participants who reported positive experiences.

“The key problem in pediatric gender medicine is not the lack of research rigor in the past—it is the field’s present-day denial of the profound problems in the existing research, and an unwillingness to engage in high quality research requisite in evidence-based medicine,” the new study’s authors explain.  (Read More)

LGBTQAI+ New Faux Holidays Are A Trojan Horse

(Faith & Freedom) A pro-transgender organization is encouraging schools to celebrate over 20 different faux holidays that encourage gender ideology.

The Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is a pro-transgender organization that works to embed gender ideology in the American education system. The organization’s “2022-2023 School Year Calendar” lists over 20 made-up holidays that promote gender ideology and queer theory.

GLSEN, the organization, is already embedded in creating public school curricula that advance the LGBTQ agenda.

This will be an easy step for the activists—unless the public takes a strong stand against their “holiday horse.”

Be informed, not misled.

Holidays have a long and storied history in human experience. Usually, the holiday has been a reprieve for the people, however, this newest attack on children and their families is anything but a reprieve.

It’s an all-out effort to mislead the public and destroy the lives of the kids. It is a “Trojan Horse.”  (Read More)

Politicians Who Refuse To Stop Big Tech’s Rabid Data Mining Are Complicit In Tyranny

(The Federalist) On Jan. 4, the EU fined Meta (Facebook) $414 million for illegally forcing Facebook and Instagram users to consent to personalized ads based on data collection. Yet Facebook is still trying to avoid asking users for consent. The law in question was the 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the toughest privacy and security law in the world. The right to privacy is part of the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights, which states, “Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.”

Just prior to this, in November last year, Google agreed to pay nearly $392 million in a settlement with 40 states (plus an $85 million settlement with Arizona) over allegations that the company tracked people through their devices after location tracking had been turned off. Google was not fined for breaking U.S. privacy laws, which are weak compared to the GDPR. Instead, they were charged for breaking consumer protection laws by misleading users about when it secretly recorded their movements and then offered the surreptitiously harvested data to digital marketers to sell advertisements.

“For years Google has prioritized profit over their users’ privacy,” said Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum. “They have been crafty and deceptive.”

According to The Markup, Facebook was also recently exposed for using tax filing services such as H&R Block, TaxAct, and TaxSlayer to receive sensitive financial information when Americans file their taxes online.  (Read More)

Report: U.S. Is ‘Most Permissive Country’ for Minor Gender Transition

(Washington Stand) “The United States is the most permissive country when it comes to the legal and medical gender transition of children,” according to a 12-country policy review by medical advocacy group Do No Harm. The group compared “different legal requirements for gender change-related treatments and actions” among the U.S. and the 11 countries of Northern and Western Europe. These countries — Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Finland, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom — “share the United States’ broad support for transgenderism” yet “reject the gender-affirming care model for children.”

Do No Harm explained that America has adopted a “gender affirmation” policy for children, which “assumes that gender incongruence can manifest as early as age four and that questioning a minor’s gender self-definition is harmful and unethical. The American Academy of Pediatrics has embraced an affirm-only/affirm-early policy since 2018, and most states abide by its guidance despite withering medical and scientific criticism.” By contrast, some European countries “have explicitly abandoned” the gender-affirming care model and “now discourage automatic deference to a child’s self-declaration on the grounds that the risks outweigh the benefits.” They also recommend “months-long psychotherapy sessions to address co-occurring mental health problems.”

The report proceeded with a country-by-country comparison of requirements for the medical and legal gender transition of children.  (Read More)

As States Ban Parents From Resisting Their Kids Going Transgender, Will Congress Step Up?

(The Federalist) Attacks on parents are getting closer to home. From a woke education establishment to increasingly activist child protection agencies, parents are losing the right to decide how to raise their children. My new legislation, the Parental Right to Protect Act, will ensure parents aren’t expelled from their child’s life because they disagree with the left’s radical ideas on sex.

More medical facilities are offering life-altering, non-reversible medical interventions for adolescents who believe they were born the wrong sex. Many parents are against these experimental surgeries and hormonal interventions because they know these treatments will cause irreparable physical and emotional harm to their children.

Take Chloe Cole, for example, who at age 13 began taking puberty blockers. At age 15, she had a double mastectomy. And at age 16, she made the decision to stop these interventions and instead affirm her sex. Earlier this year, Chloe launched an organization alongside others who regret having received so-called “gender-affirming care.” This organization now works to warn others about the harms caused by such medical interventions.

It’s no wonder countries such as the United Kingdom and Sweden have recently suspended their use of this experimental approach on children, recognizing its inherent risks. Too bad the Biden administration isn’t following suit.  (Read More)

CDC Urges Teachers, Administrators, School Nurses to Adopt LGBT Curriculum, Endorse Transgender Identity

(Daily Signal) Just days after Christmas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention republished a “self-assessment tool” urging teachers, administrators, school health staff, and others to become an “awesome ally” by advocating for LGBT causes in school.

The document cites multiple LGBT activist groups, including a division of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The CDC did not respond to The Daily Signal’s request for comment about the document, which it originally published in October 2020.

“School administrators: Our LGBTQ inclusivity self-assessment tool can help you quickly gauge inclusivity at your school,” the CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health posted on Twitter on Tuesday. “See your score today and learn ways to increase inclusivity.”

The document, “LGBTQ Inclusivity in Schools: A Self-Assessment Tool,” appears on the CDC’s youth website in a section “For Schools” and under the drop-down “Tools for Supporting LGBTQ Youth.” (Read More)

Hospital Surgery Dept. ‘Proud’ to Announce App Targeting Children for Gender Transitions

(Washington Stand) A publicly funded university hospital’s department of surgery publicly boasted Saturday about expanding gender transition surgeries, which will likely target children. The OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University) Department of Surgery tweeted its annual newsletter for 2022, “On the Cutting Edge,” to its Twitter account, noting, “we have every reason to be incredibly proud of the work we’ve accomplished in 2022.” Among the accomplishments they included were “expansion of gender affirming care services” and a “pilot study” app “designed to reduce anxiety in children undergoing procedures.”

OHSU manages Oregon’s top hospital system, which includes Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The Washington Stand reported last year that Doernbecher provides hormone treatments, coaching tips, and “a full range of services for transgender and gender-nonconforming children and teens.” According to their website, the children’s hospital will chemically intervene on children as young as 10 years old.  (Read More)

How These Parents Helped Their Son Reject Transgender Lies And Affirm His Real Identity

(The Federalist) From the time “Brandon” was quite young, people would remark that he was not a typical boy. Before he was even walking, his babysitter told his mother, “He’s too good to be a boy,” by which she meant he was gentle, sensitive, and compliant — traits we stereotypically associate with girls.

Every day when his mother picked him up from preschool, he was playing with the little girls instead of the boys. He was not interested in toy guns or trucks. He preferred imaginary games using stuffed animals to act out complex social relationships. From an early age, he sensed he was different from most other boys.

Today we would call him gender nonconforming. This is the story of how his parents helped him stop from pursuing a path of despair and genital mutilation.

In elementary school, Brandon came to his parents weeping — repeatedly — because he did not fit in anywhere. Most of his friends were still girls, but they did not fully accept him as one of their own because, of course, he is a boy. He told his parents, “I feel the way girls do, I am interested in things girls are. God should have made me a girl.”

By his early teens, Brandon was scouring the internet for information on transgender ideology. So what did his parents do?  (Read More)

2023: The year the truth will come out

(Idaho Freedom Foundation) News articles about Missouri death row inmate Scott McLaughlin helped me figure out what my new year’s resolution would be.

In 2003, McLaughlin raped and killed his ex-girlfriend. This week, Gov. Mike Parson denied McLaughlin’s clemency request saying via press release, “[T]he State of Missouri will carry out the sentence of Scott McLaughlin as ordered by the Supreme Court of Missouri.”

That’s a terribly useless sentence which I ordinarily wouldn’t quote. But the most important word in the press release is contained in the name “Scott.” Because Scott, though on death row for a very heinous crime, is given deference from the media and gets to go by his new preferred name, Amber, having “transitioned” in some kind of way within the last few years.

And it’s not just that Scott is being called Amber. Or a transgender woman. He’s being referred to as forever having been such. To wit: A spokesman for the Missouri Department of Correction told a reporter, “It is extremely unusual for a woman to commit a capital offense, such as a brutal murder, and even more unusual for a women to, as was the case with McLaughlin, rape and murder a woman.”

There are countless articles that say McLaughlin would be “the first woman executed by the state of Missouri since 1976.” And then there’s the way in which McLaughlin is described in 2003 and in his previous child sex convictions dating back into the 1990s. He’s described as “she” and “her” as if that were true at the time. Articles say McLaughlin “raped and killed her girlfriend” (emphasis added).   (Read More)

Idaho School Board Meeting Ends In Chaos Over Gender Policy

(Daily Wire) An Idaho school board meeting erupted in chaos and ended early on Monday after passions ran high over a proposed gender policy.

Caldwell School District, just west of Boise, abruptly shut down a heated public comment session on its new gender identity and sexual orientation policy after frustrated parents, a state lawmaker, and a student sounded off on the policy. Hundreds of people reportedly lined up out the door to speak.

One mom who appeared to be Hispanic said “we are conservatives” and called the policy “indoctrination into a cult” and “immoral child exploitation.”

“It’s a constitutional right of the parents to raise their children with their own moral values and without the imposition of alternate lifestyles,” she said.

“The is an attack on God and family,” the mom continued. “The educational system has become a pawn for destroying our children, Christian culture, and the guarantee of freedoms in our republic.”  (Read More)

Walgreens & CVS: Do Not Turn Your Pharmacies into Abortion Businesses!

(FRC Action) We write to you with great concern because of the news that you intend to turn your pharmacies into abortion businesses. The neighborhood pharmacy has always stood as a place of healing, where human suffering can be alleviated thanks to the dedicated work of our local pharmacists. However, by selling the chemical abortion regimen, the local pharmacy will become a place of suffering and death.

Abortion-inducing drugs do more than just take the lives of the most vulnerable among us: the unborn – they hurt women. A recent study of 42,000 abortions found that women suffered four times as many adverse side effects from abortion-inducing drugs than from surgical abortions. In fact, one in five abortions induced by mifepristone resulted in negative health outcomes.

We ask that you stop attempting to sell these harmful drugs in your pharmacies.

We ask that you commit to keeping these drugs that end the lives of children and hurt women out of our communities.

We ask that you keep your pharmacy business a pharmacy business – not an abortion business.  (Click Here to sign the petition)

Two state supreme courts rule very differently on the constitutionality of pro-life laws

(Standing For Freedom Center) The Idaho Supreme Court ruled that there is no right to an abortion in the state’s constitution, while the South Carolina Supreme Court ruled that the right to privacy in the state’s constitution encompasses the right to an abortion.

The two decisions are an example of competing judicial philosophies. The first court applied originalism, or textualism, relying on the explicit wording and stated intent of the constitutional text, while the second took a loose constructionism approach, or a broad interpretation of the text, that allowed them to fill in the gaps according to their own worldview.

The Idaho Supreme Court upheld the right to life in a case challenging the state’s pro-life laws, including its near total ban on abortion after six weeks’ gestation and its liability law. The majority opinion, signed by signed by Chief Justice Richard Bevan and Justices Robyn Brody and Gregory Moeller, stated,

“For the reasons discussed below, we cannot read a fundamental right to abortion into the text of the Idaho Constitution. Since Idaho attained statehood in 1890, this Court has repeatedly and steadfastly interpreted the Idaho Constitution based on the plain and ordinary meaning of its text, as intended by those who framed and adopted the provision at issue. That is our duty as the judicial branch: to sustain the rule of law—not to promote our personal policy preferences. If we were to jettison that disciplined approach, even in the face of a uniquely emotional and politically divisive policy issue, the Idaho Constitution would no longer be the voice of the people of Idaho— it would be effectively replaced by the voice of a select few sitting on this Court.”  (Read More)

Shocking Chicago Public Schools Report Reveals Over 600 Cases Of Staff Grooming and Sexually Assaulting Students

(RedState) A shocking report from the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has revealed hundreds of cases of teachers sexually grooming and assaulting CPS students in 2022 and earlier.

The report, released last week, details disturbing encounters between staff and students, including one CPS teacher who “groomed and sexually assaulted” a 17-year-old girl on multiple occasions. In a move that will feel familiar to parents already sounding the alarm about school officials encouraging students to be open about sexual issues with teachers while hiding it from parents, the girl told investigators “she began to think of him as her friend and therapist.” The teacher is accused of repeatedly groping and touching the student, telling her, “I like the way you look in your jeans.” Text messages and Snapchats verified some of the accusations, according to the report.

The accused teacher is now battling termination by CPS.

That was just one example among hundreds provided by the IOG.

An OIG investigation found that a former JROTC staff member had sex with a female high school student over the course of a year when she was 16 to 17 years old. During this period, the JROTC staff member provided the student with alcohol and consumed marijuana around her.  (Read More)

Crocs Footwear Is Sponsoring a Drag Fashion Show—for CHILDREN

(PJ Media) Shoe brand Crocs partnered with BBC Three’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” UK for a DragCon, which is happening Jan. 6-8, according to Industry Fashion. But it gets worse—the event was advertised as open to anyone under the age of 18. Nothing like dragging innocence through the mire in service of woke ideology.

Crocs is sponsoring DragCon’s Main Stage and will release a limited-edition “RuPeter” charm (Jibbetz) collection to customize Crocs, Industry Fashion said. The outlet noted that the event will also feature a Kids Fashion Show. That means Crocs is making it possible for drag queens to advertise their perverse tastes to kids. Media Research Center quoted an Instagram post from RuPaul’s DragCon that has since been removed, which said, “All kids under 18 are welcome, please report to the Main Stage at 12:45PM to participate.” Since Crocs is sponsoring the Main Stage, it is automatically supporting the Kids Fashion Show, which is apparently open even to toddlers.

In fact, the deleted Instagram post specifically mentioned Crocs: “Hit them with your catwalk, kids 👠 Bring it to the runway with your parent/guardian for the #DragConUK 2023 Kids Fashion Show, Sunday 8th January on the @crocseurope Main Stage!”

An Instagram post that has not been removed from “rupaulsdragcon” asked excitedly, “Y’all ready to crush the UK’s biggest weekend in #DragRace herstory? 🇬🇧 Don’t miss your chance to see your fave queens performing on the @crocseurope Main Stage at #DragCon UK 2023, the ONLY place to snatch exclusive RuPeter Jibbitz to decorate your Crocs!” Kids are obviously a target audience for the drag-celebrating Jibbitz collection, too.  (Read More)

If Your Kids Are Unhappy, Take Them To Church

(The Federalist) It seems like every time I turn around, an editor assigns me a story related to the mental health crises of our children. Most of the health experts I speak to correlate Covid lockdowns and our children’s fragile state. Closing schools played a major role in this phenomenon, but what if other crucial factors are being overlooked?

Another story, seemingly unrelated to the mental health crisis, is making the rounds in the corporate press. Church attendance is on a rapid decline. The “nones,” survey respondents who say they have no religious affiliation, are the fastest-growing group in the United States every year. We now have a generation of adults that grew up not attending worship services weekly, and they are raising their children in a similar fashion.

The “nones” seem to prefer a parenting style that says: “We’re fine without church and worship and religious instruction and institutions, thank you very much.” But they are not fine. Their children are not coping and managing the day-to-day stresses and inconveniences thrown at them. They are fragile and increasingly so.  (Read More)

Grooming: Knowing the Signs

(Center for Child Protection) Last year at the Center for Child Protection, 92% of children knew and trusted their abusers. This tells us that stranger danger isn’t the only tactic we should take when protecting our children. With this knowledge, what do we need to know to help protect the children in our lives?

One way an abuser may form a relationship with a child is through grooming. According to our partners at Darkness to Light, grooming is a process by which offenders gradually draw victims into a sexual relationship and maintain that relationship in secrecy. Offenders may even fill roles within the victims’ families making them trusted and valued friends. This tactic is highly successful because of its slow and gradual nature.

We asked Mollyanne Vasquez, Education Services Manager, what some signs are to look for in kids being groomed. She said the perpetrator may act through “inappropriate touching or tickling, inappropriate jokes or stories, gifts or preferential treatment, asking the child to keep a secret from others and creating one-on-one time.” It’s crucial to recognize the possible signs of someone you may trust with your children.  (Read More)

How Can We Help Our Kids Develop a Biblical Worldview?

(Washington Stand) “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)

“Live your truth.” “You are enough.” “You shouldn’t judge.” “God just wants you to be happy.” “Follow your heart.” “We’re all basically good people.”

These are just some phrases that our kids hear on a regular basis from our culture through movies, books, social media, and sadly, even progressive Christians. As parents who want our children to know the gospel and be disciples of Jesus, we need to help them recognize lies and half-truths and instead build their lives on the absolute truth of God’s Word. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).

Consider these statistics:

“If America continues on its current trend, the number of 18-29-year-old Americans who state, ‘My religious preference is none or a non-Christian religion’ will grow to over 50% of the population by the year 2030” (Steve Cable, “Cultural Captives”).

Many millennials and Gen Zers are leaving the Christian faith but still call themselves Christian. Surveys show that large percentages are uncertain whether Jesus was physically resurrected, believe Jesus is not the only way to heaven, and are uncertain or confused about whether the Bible can be trusted (“Mama Bear Apologetics,” p. 29).   (Read More)

Neutering the English language one naughty word at a time

(American Family News) Here’s a Christmas present from Stanford University. They apparently won’t ban use of “American” after all. Yay them.

In May, the college administration published a list of words to be scrubbed from the university’s website and computer code, including describing someone as an “American.”

It has to go because it insinuates “that the US is the most important country in the Americas.”

Perhaps they’re right; you could make a strong case for Barbados.

The Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative issued by the IT Department also sought to ban “master,” as in “mastering” a subject, because of the slave/master dynamic (last practiced in America 157 years ago).

They also want to ban “grandfather,” because of its use in racist voting laws (by Southern Democrats, which they don’t mention), and they urged using “Latinx” instead of “Hispanic,” even though actual Hispanics hate that term.  (Read More)

Study: ‘Gender-affirming Care’ for Children Has No Medical Benefits

(PJ Media) Earlier this year, Robert “Rachel” Levine, Joe Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health, claimed without evidence that there is consensus in the medical community that so-called “gender-affirming care” is good for kids.

“There is no argument among medical professionals — pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, adolescent medicine physicians, adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, etc. — about the value and the importance of gender-affirming care,” he claimed.

But a new study has found that Levine’s claim is not supported by data. In fact, there is no medical science to support his claim whatsoever.

The study, which was conducted by the nonprofit organization Sex Matters in the United Kingdom, found that the alleged benefits of “gender-affirming care” are “no greater than a placebo effect.”

“The ‘gender-affirming’ model of care for teenagers is based on evidence that falls apart under examination,” Sex Matters says. “There is strong evidence that this medical pathway causes physical harm. It can lead to infertility and loss of future sexual function; among multiple side effects, bone health suffers.”  (Read More)

What Marjorie Taylor Greene Found at Her Local Walmart Should Make Parents Angry

(PJ Media) For decades, Walmart has positioned itself as a family company. Just look at their ads — not just at Christmas, but all year long — and you’ll see families enjoying products that they bought at Walmart. When Walmart started spreading nationwide in the ’80s, it used a lot of goodwill with families to build its brand.

Of course, a lot of things have changed since the ’80s. Walmart now sells LGBTQ-oriented clothing in the children’s department, but you’d better believe it stopped selling guns — apparently “responsible firearm sales” means zero sales. The fact of the matter is that Walmart is as woke as you’d expect any large corporation to be.

But what Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) found at her local Walmart last weekend might shock you more than anything else. Last Saturday, she was shopping at Walmart in Dalton, Ga., in the northwest corner of the state, and she saw sex toys and other adult items on a display next to the kids’ toothbrushes.

[…]“Selling sex toys openly where children are exposed to them is wrong, inappropriate, immoral, indecent, perverted, shameful, and incredibly harmful to children,” she continued in a thread, asking, “Why is Walmart participating in the grooming and sexualization of children? Is this in all stores or just Dalton?”  (Read More)

Even In The Womb, Christ Was Both God And Man

(The Federalist) Amid the tinsel and lights of the Christmas season, you may find Nativity displays on fireplace mantels, store shelves, and front lawns. Those displays remind us of Jesus as an infant, “wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” Many Christians think of this moment as the beginning of our Savior’s earthly presence as both God and man. But like every baby before and after Him, Jesus’s life on Earth in the flesh actually began months before birth.

The angel Gabriel explained how Jesus’s earthly life would begin when he told Mary she would miraculously conceive “the Son of God” while she was a virgin. After hearing this world-changing news, Mary went “with haste” to visit her relative, Elizabeth. When Mary greeted Elizabeth, the Bible reveals that Elizabeth was “filled with the Holy Spirit” and recognized the divinity of Jesus by referring to Mary as “the mother of my Lord.”

A close reading of Luke 1 strongly suggests that this meaningful exchange occurred during the embryonic period of Jesus’s development — before He was even old enough to be called a “fetus.” Yet Elizabeth called Him “my Lord” because that is exactly who He was even in that early stage of Mary’s pregnancy. Elizabeth also referred to Mary as a “mother” — not a “future mother” or “mother-to-be” — because motherhood begins the moment a child is conceived.  (Read More)

Why Many Conservatives Won’t Be with Their Children or Grandchildren this Christmas

(Dennis Prager) There are probably hundreds of thousands of men and women who, because of political differences, maintain minimal or no contact with their parents and, even more cruelly, do not allow their parents to have any contact with their children — their parents’ grandchildren
Probably an unprecedented number of Americans with grown children will be alone this Christmas because their children will neither visit them nor invite them for the holiday dinner.

In some rare instances of horrific parental behavior, this may be excusable, but when the reason is politics, it is inexcusable.

I know of this firsthand. Parent after parent calls my radio show, often close to tears, sometimes actually sobbing, pouring their heart out to me about being alone on holidays despite having children and grandchildren.

In virtually every case, the parent is conservative, and the child is on the Left. I assume there are cases of grown conservative children who won’t allow a liberal/Left parent to see his or her grandchildren — but I have never heard of a single such case. It is almost impossible to imagine a conservative adult depriving his or her parents of access to their grandchildren because the parent(s) voted for President Joe Biden. Moreover, if there were such a person, every conservative I know would vociferously condemn this individual.  (Read More)

The FBI’s Twitter Censorship an Apparent Violation of the Law

(Washington Stand) The federal government made an “apparent violation of the law” by pressuring social media outlets to ban or suppress American citizens’ accounts, or to ban the Hunter Biden laptop story as a foreign intelligence operation, an expert has said. Meanwhile, the federal government exploited the same online platforms to spread U.S. government propaganda, new disclosures from Twitter have revealed.

The seventh and eighth batches of the “Twitter Files” focused on the FBI’s suppression of the explosive contents of Biden’s laptop, which threatened to link 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to a murky web of foreign influence-peddling, as well as military intelligence campaigns using fake accounts to echo the Pentagon’s party line. Previous accounts showed how the FBI established a one-way portal to Twitter to request officials place certain accounts under a “shadow ban” or remove whole posts altogether — requests often received, and honored, by a plethora of former FBI agents and other government officials burrowed deeply into every level of the platform.

“The FBI was abusing its authority to target and abuse the First Amendment rights of American citizens and seems to me an apparent violation of the law,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told “Washington Watch” guest host Joseph Backholm on Tuesday. “When you have collusion to suppress the civil rights of U.S. citizens” between the government and the private sector, “that violates federal law.”  (Read More)

How About a Social Credit Card?

(Faith & Freedom) The Left has been slowly pushing a socialist agenda in the U.S. for some time. However, it wasn’t until the Covid-19 pandemic that Americans began to realize it.

During an interview with Australia’s Sky News, anti-woke thinker Jordan Peterson warned that a “totalitarian credit system” is coming to western countries.

It’s being presented as a solution to multiple credit cards.

In fact, it will reward you for good behavior.

It’s also very convenient.


[…]Peterson said it would be a “miracle” if western countries never come to this, but highly doubted it.

“And it’s like, fair enough; you can understand that. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could pay for everything with our phones? It’s like, wouldn’t it be nice if the central government — who is woke-oriented and makes carbon dioxide remediation the priority — knows exactly what you spend on everything so they can target you tax-wise with precision?” Peterson asked.  (Read More)
