School Allowing Students to Form Pro-Life Group. Here’s What it Took to Make it Happen.

Published

on

A middle school in Rio Rancho, New Mexico is finally allowing students to start a pro-life group. However, the road to get there was not at all an easy one, as you’ll clearly see from the details.

In fact, the victory was part of a hard fought battle waged by a nonprofit legal group who sent a claim of discrimination to the school after they initially refused to allow the group to form.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when you fight back.

The school initially denied the group’s formation in 2017 when eighth-grade student Dylan Fredette attempted to set up Students for Life, the Albuquerque Journal reported. Fredette even had a teacher who had volunteered to moderate the group if approved.

School principal Lynda Kitts reportedly told Fredette that creating such a group would not be fair to those who are pro-choice and denied his request.

In response, the Thomas More Society, a nonprofit legal group, began sending letters of complaint to the district superintendent and the school itself, noting that the principal’s decision violated the student’s First Amendment rights, according to the Journal.

The group also threatened to file a federal civil rights action suit if the district didn’t reply to the letter or permit the formation of the club.

The Thomas More Society announced last week that the school decided to permit the club.

A spokesperson for the school district stated that another school had put together an anti-abortion group and that the group was supported by the district.

The main reason they claim to have been against the school in Rio Rancho is because certain processes weren’t followed.

The Thomas More Society had a different take on the matter:

“The Thomas More Society pointed out that Principal Lynda Kitts was wrong to deny a pro-life group at Rio Rancho Middle School. She stated such a club was ‘too controversial’ and that other students might disagree with the pro-life point-of-view. She refused to approve the pro-life club even after she was asked to reconsider her denial,” Mannix explained.

The good news is, these students now can form their club and boldly stand up for the life and rights of our most vulnerable citizens: the unborn.

MARK MEADOWS: Trump Tested Positive for COVID Ahead of Debate with Biden

A negative test soon followed.

Published

on

Then-President Trump’s bout with COVID-19 was one of the more harrowing moments of his time in the Oval Office, and a new memoir by Mark Meadows has added a new twist to the tale.

The entire episode had the nation on the edge of its seat, concerned that the sitting President, (a septuagenarian considered to be “high risk”), may fall quite ill from the virus.  Of course, being the leader of the free world has its benefits, and Donald Trump received state-of-the-art care during his brief stint in the hospital – even going so far as to take a lap around the medical center to wave to his supporters.

But now, The Don’s former chief of staff has revealed that the former Commander in Chief actually tested positive for the virus before a debate with Joe Biden – with a negative result to follow.

Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, the former president’s fourth and last chief of staff has revealed in a new book.

Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there.”

Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive.

Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.

Trump openly lauded the work of his doctors, as well as a therapeutic treatment from Regeneron, as the reason for his speedy recovery.

FedEx Driver Under Investigation After Dumping Hundreds of Packages into Ravine

As if the rest of the supply chain wasn’t already damaged enough.

Published

As the holiday season approaches, the strain on our network of mail couriers continues to ramp up, and the stress appears to have been too much for at least one delivery driver.

For many, the headaches have already begun:  Missing packages, erroneous deliveries, and unbelievable delays.  But for hundreds of folks in Alabama, something even worse has occurred.

Authorities investigating the discovery of hundreds of FedEx packages in an Alabama ravine have questioned the driver they think is responsible — and believe the driver dumped packages there at least six times, a sheriff said Tuesday.

The investigation began November 24, when sheriff’s deputies in northern Alabama’s Blount County found 300 to 400 packages in a ravine on private property, the county sheriff’s department said.

FedEx warned that the situation could take some time to sort out.

“This will not be an easy or fast case to close. … I am asking for patience from our citizens as our investigators work through this case,” Moon’s post reads. FedEx sent workers and trucks to the ravine last week to begin recovering and distributing the packages. The property is about 40 miles outside Birmingham.
The questioned driver “is no longer providing service on behalf of FedEx Ground,” FedEx said Tuesday in a prepared statement.
No charges have yet been filed in the case, and the suspected driver has not been arrested.
