New Curriculum in Schools: Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Masturbation and Who Knows What else?

Published

on

The pandemic opened parents’ eyes as to what is going on in their local public school. I believe the adverse reaction to the teaching of Critical Race Theory is the result of remote learning being brought into the homes so parents were around as the lessons were being taught over the internet. Recently a story was published about a private school in New York City where a first-grade class was shown cartoon content on masturbation. 

You probably don’t believe me that this could happen. We have principals, lesson plans, and supposedly, many other checks and balances to protect our children. Don’t believe what I say. Go to the link at Click Here and see for yourself. One parent commented, “The video and curriculum are also teaching children that family members, including parents and grandparents, should not be able to hug or touch them — even innocently — without the child’s consent.” This concept drives a wedge between parents, grandparents, and the children.

One angry mother remarked to the New York Post, “Paying $50,000 to these a-holes to tell my kid not to let her grandfather hug her when he sees her?” Newsweek reports that a Nevada Family Alliance group wants teachers to wear body cameras to keep Critical Race Theory out of schools. I will have a recommendation in a few moments, but I want to give you more information about what is going on in schools, perhaps even yours.

Wikipedia reports old data that between 1991 and 2000, “roughly 290,000 students experienced some sort of physical, sexual abuse. A federal report looking into sexual harassment in California said that 422,000 California Public School students would-be victims before graduation from high school. The 2002 Department of Education report estimated that from 6 percent to 10 percent of all students in public schools would be victims of abuse before graduation — a staggering statistic. Of children in 8th through 11th grade, about 3.5 million students (nearly 7%) surveyed reported having had physical, sexual contact with an adult (most often a teacher or coach). The type of physical contact ranged from unwanted touching of their body all the way up to sexual intercourse.

The United States Department of Education withheld $4 million from Chicago Public Schools “for what federal officials say is a failure to protect students from sexual abuse.”

A February 2012 Slate.com article asked: “How many kids are sexually abused by their teachers?” The alarming answer: “Probably millions.” It’s an epidemic.

If so, why the silence? For one, teachers’ unions don’t want the truth to complicate contract talks and tarnish teachers’ carefully cultivated image with the public. Administrators say it’s almost impossible to fire a teacher.

Based on news coverage and opinion polls, the media believe public teachers are saints — and religion is bad. So, while a church sex abuse scandal gets covered, a similar school scandal gets covered up. One last point regarding cash settlements, The LA schools made two payments totaling $169 million for one teacher involving 100 students. Based on the number of students attacked, the amount of money could be staggering. When was the last time you heard about a cash settlement for the activities of a teacher?

I could spend more time on other sexual attacks based on race, sexual orientation, and other issues, but I want to move on. 

Some people have suggested that they saw and heard what was going on in the classroom because of distance learning and were shocked. The teachers’ unions support the camera in the classroom for distance learning. I think they should agree for our children’s protection to installing two fixed cameras in each classroom. One to be mounted behind the teacher, and the other behind the students.

 Every time someone is in the classroom, the camera will come on and stay on until the room is empty. Each parent will have the opportunity, if their schedule allows, to watch live what is going on in their child’s classroom. They can replay the images at a time more convenient for them. Very quickly, both teacher and student will ignore that the camera is there. If there is a complaint by a teacher or a student, we have a video record of the events on a particular day and time in question. 

As you can see from the above, the classroom has gotten more dangerous both physically and mentally. We need to keep all of our children safe.

DOD Will Stop Paying Military Members Who Refuse Vaccine

Hasn’t this gone on long enough?

At this point in the pandemic, perhaps the only thing that we know for sure is that we don’t really know when the end will finally arrive.  The virus has continued to power through unpredictable waves, each with their own distinct set of warnings from the powers that be.

And so, not knowing when any of this will be considered “over”, (at least in the federal government’s eyes), overreaching vaccine mandates continue to be enforced.

The latest threat to the unvaccinated takes aim at the US military, hitting service members directly in the wallet.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has ordered that all members of the National Guard and Reserve must receive Covid vaccines or face loss of pay and being marked absent without cause from drills and training, according to a copy of a memo obtained by NBC News.

On Aug. 24, Austin made the Covid vaccine mandatory for all service members and directing the secretaries of the military services to issue their own implementation guidance and timelines. The mandate extended to all service members on active duty or in the Ready Reserve, including the National Guard.

On Nov. 2, Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma wrote a letter to Austin, asking him to rescind the vaccine mandate for members of the Oklahoma National Guard. Days later, Stitt appointed a new adjutant general of the Oklahoma National Guard who said he would not enforce the vaccine mandate.

But the DOD wasn’t having it.

On Monday, Austin responded to Stitt, denying his request to rescind the mandate for the Oklahoma National Guard. What remained unclear, however, was how the Pentagon planned to enforce the mandate for members of the National Guard while they are on state duty. Most of the time, including when they are training, members are on state duty and answer to their governor.

Further, those who are unable to participate in their duties due to their vaccination status will be accusing no time served during their absences.

Former Trump Chief of Staff Flips, is Cooperating with Jan 6th Committee

Say WHAT?!

Published

on

The work of the January 6th select committee continues to astound and astonish of late, with potential witness after potential witness finding themselves in untenable positions.  Stuck between a rock and a contempt charge.

The latest to reverse course and decide to cooperate is none other than former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who this week signaled his willingness to work with the Democratically-led fishing expedition.

 Mark Meadows, who served as former President Donald Trump’s last chief of staff and was involved in efforts to challenge the 2020 election results, is now cooperating with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the panel, said in a statement that Meadows has been “engaging” with the panel through his lawyer, providing records to the committee “and will soon appear for an initial deposition.”

Meadows was subpoenaed by the committee in late September for records and testimony regarding his and Trump’s activities before and during the Capitol riot.

The news was rather unexpected:

“Mr. Meadows has been engaging with the Select Committee through his attorney. He has produced records to the committee and will soon appear for an initial deposition,” the committee said in a statement Tuesday. “The Select Committee expects all witnesses, including Mr. Meadows, to provide all information requested and that the Select Committee is lawfully entitled to receive. The committee will continue to assess his degree of compliance with our subpoena after the deposition.”

His lawyer initially said Meadows wouldn’t cooperate with the committee because of Trump’s plans to assert executive privilege, an argument dismissed by the committee, whose members will vote this week to hold former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark in contempt of Congress for ignoring the panel’s subpoenas.

“As we have from the beginning, we continue to work with the Select Committee and its staff to see if we can reach an accommodation that does not require Mr. Meadows to waive Executive Privilege or to forfeit the long-standing position that senior White House aides cannot be compelled to testify before Congress,” Meadows’ attorney George Terwilliger said in a statement Tuesday. “We appreciate the Select Committee’s openness to receiving voluntary responses on non-privileged topics.”

The committee has been widely criticized on the right side of the aisle, with many considering their investigation to be nothing more than a re-do of Trump’s second impeachment, this time with a Democratic majority deciding the outcome.
