Police Question Aspiring Cadet and Military Vet’s Homeschool Diploma

Published

on

Homeschooling is a growing practice in the US as parents opt to take their children’s education into their own hands and avoid the many problems associated with public schools, but in the “real world”, many people are still struggling to understand that it is a valid form of education.

Every state has different homeschool laws, and the requirements for graduation vary accordingly. This is, of course, the same in the public school system, but a diploma from an institutional school rarely raises questions.

If you have met the requirements to serve in our nation’s military, however, apparently a homeschool diploma might still raise questions, as one New Jersey family found out recently.

After serving in the military, a New Jersey homeschool graduate applied to work in a law enforcement job. But while his background made him a very desirable candidate, the officer processing his application was in a quandary as to how to confirm that his parent-issued high school diploma was legitimate.

He explains that while the police may have been confused by his diploma, it was every bit as valid as a regular school diploma, and he was able to advise the parents accordingly:

The purpose of a high school diploma is to provide an easily recognized document to substantiate that the bearer successfully completed his secondary education. The diploma itself is confirmation that the student finished a high school program. So if someone questions whether the diploma is real, or valid, or legitimate, or just wants some form of additional support, what is the best source to consult? The person who signed the diploma!

At my recommendation, therefore, the candidate’s mother and father signed affidavits attesting to the fact that their son had graduated from a lawful program of secondary education and earned a high school diploma. These affidavits, together with a letter from me explaining that the diploma was valid under New Jersey law, were transmitted to the officer.

Thankfully, the young man had a happy ending and was able to verify his diploma, and was hired!

Save conservative media!

President Trump Issues Warning About Pelosi Impeachment Logic; Says It Could Be Used To ‘Routinely Attack Future Presidents’

Published

on

On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi held her weekly press conference where she announced that the House Judiciary Committee would be going forward with the drafting of articles of impeachment against President Trump. The articles of impeachment are part of the final steps of the process before sending impeachment to the House for a full vote. President Trump responded to the news of the articles being drafted by noting on Twitter that the kind of logic being employed by Democrats like Pelosi could potentially be used against presidents in the future. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The Do Nothing, Radical Left Democrats have just announced that they are going to seek to Impeach me over NOTHING. They already gave up on the ridiculous Mueller ‘stuff,’ so now they hang their hats on two totally appropriate (perfect) phone calls with the Ukrainian President,” he said. “This will mean that the beyond important and seldom used act of Impeachment will be used routinely to attack future Presidents. That is not what our Founders had in mind. The good thing is that the Republicans have NEVER been more united. We will win!” Trump added. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1202606537342160896 No specific timeline for the articles, nor what exactly they would contain were brought up during Pelosi’s press conference, but Democrats are hoping for a chance to vote on them before the House adjourns on December 20.

Democratic Congressman Hints At Possible Continuous Impeachment Efforts, Says ‘We Can Impeach Again’

Published

Texas Rep. Al Green is not helping to dispel the notions held by conservatives that the whole impeachment inquiry House Democrats have launched against President Trump is a coup designed to help them get revenge for Hillary’s loss in 2016 with his latest comments suggesting impeachment could be a continuous process. On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made an announcement stating the House Judiciary Committee would be drafting up articles of impeachment against the president as part of the final steps before taking the measure to the House for a full vote. If the House succeeds in voting to impeach President Trump, the process will then head over to the Republican-controlled Senate. As of right now, there’s very little support available to actually convict Trump of any wrongdoing, so chances are high that impeachment will fail in the Senate. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Green claimed that shouldn’t dissuade Democrats from moving rapidly toward impeachment. During a speech on the House floor on Thursday, Green reminded his colleagues that there is “no limit” to the number of times they can impeach the president. “The Constitution allows a president to be impeached more than once,” Green explained. “If we impeach now, or at some time in the near future, for one issue that we dearly should, then we find later that the president has other issues that merit impeachment, we can impeach again. There is no limit on the number of times.” Green noted that he doesn’t believe Trump should be impeached “needlessly,” despite having forced a vote on impeachment three times before the current effort to remove Trump following his controversial phone call with Ukrainian leaders. Green further stated, “Every time I call it to the attention of this House, there was purpose and reason behind it,…
