When the president of the National School Board Association sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to use federal law enforcement to deal with the “imminent threat” of parents showing up at school board meetings to protest their kids being forced into draconian COVID restrictions and indoctrinated with pornographic sexual content and racist “Critical Race Theory,” many Americans rightly reacted with fury and dismay. Public school bureaucrats have no divine right to decide how they will treat other people’s children or what they’ll teach them, especially if it’s controversial leftist propaganda that parents don’t want polluting their children’s minds.

In fact, in Virginia, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign took a big stumble when he sided with these educrats in a debate, declaring, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Problem: that right is actually codified into state law, which he should know, having been Governor before (State code section 1-240.1: “A parent has a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child.”) Even Democrat ex-Gov. Doug Wilder slapped him down, saying, “If parents don’t have a say-so in terms of their kids’ education, then who does?”

We all know the left’s answer to that question: they believe the government owns your kids, the same way it owns every penny you earn but is generous enough to let you keep a few of them.

Anyway, do you know who didn’t give that outrageous letter the quick trip to the circular file that it deserved? Attorney General Merrick Garland, who announced that the FBI and the Biden “Justice” Department will begin holding meetings with federal, state and local law enforcement to discuss ways to combat this “disturbing trend” of parents refusing to let their children be brainwashed with leftist garbage. He didn’t exactly put it that way, of course, but I cut to the chase.

Garland said in a statement, "Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values. Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety."

That’s funny, I thought the term “public servant” meant they serve the public, not the other way around. Also, America’s greatest core value is freedom of speech.

To be clear: it’s important to remain civil even when you’re justifiably angry. Nobody should express their anger at school boards with threats and intimidation. FYI to AG Garland: that also applies to BLM and Antifa protesters. But it’s reasonable to assume that with this massive effort to start “policing” and monitoring parental speech, the goal is not to prevent real threats and violence but to intimidate parents into being afraid to speak up at public meetings. It’s the same method that’s been used to intimidate Trump supporters into being afraid of expressing their honest opinions on social media. They know “Big Brother is watching you.”

So keep showing up at public meetings to express your opposition, but do it civilly. And most importantly, show up to all local elections and VOTE THESE BUMS OUT. The left has figured out that the way to destroy America is from the bottom up. So they show up for local elections, where voters have gotten complacent and assume it doesn't matter whether they vote or not. This is how you get city councils that defund the police and Soros-funded district attorneys who release criminals the prosecute people who defend themselves from criminals, and yes, school boards that push anti-Americanism, critical race theory and radical sexual politics. If you want to get rid of them, show up at the meetings, but better yet, show up at your local election polls.

Meanwhile, with every new action taken by Merrick Garland, we see what a debt of gratitude America owes to Sen. Mitch McConnell for blocking Obama from putting him onto the Supreme Court. Far from the moderate, centrist jurist he was touted as being, he’s proving daily that he has no qualms about treating the Bill of Rights like toilet paper and abusing his powers to impose the will of the authoritarian left. I am counting the minutes until 2024, when a new Republican President has him escorted from the DOJ, hopefully never to hold any position of public trust again.

    I am deeply troubled that Republicans didn't see this coming. Election fraud has been creeping into our elections, especially the past 2 decades and I fear it is only going to continue to get worse. It appears Republicans are powerless to stop the Marxist democrats from their continued efforts to destroy America, they don't even try to hide it anymore..... Why

    Garland's true colors are flying and it is not red, white, and blue. He is part and parcel of the new left that claims to be moderate, but are anti Constitution and hard left (transation American Marxist).

    So I comment on FB that I’m for voting for a certain state candidate (Lankford) & FB blocks it saying it’s a violation against speaking against the Covid stuff. NOTHING was mentioned about Covid in the post or comment. The blocked me again!

    On Mark Levin's Podcast on 10/7/2021, he mentioned a letter written by America First Legal Foundation, sent to Inspector General Horowitz, requesting an investigation into Attorney General Merrick Garland. The letter questions whether AG Garland's memo may be preventing parents from practicing their constitutional right to protect their children and protest their government. The AFL letter also cited that AG Garland met with several people in the White House to concoct the plan to minimize parental mobilization and the impact they could have on the upcoming midterm elections and other really interesting information. You'll want to listen to it if you haven't already! You picked the right verse “For nothing is concealed that will not become evident, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” God is Faithful and His word is Truth.

    Praying fervently. With so many politicians revealing themselves, and trying to change all the laws, we need heavenly intervention bad. God bless all of your efforts to keep us informed.

    Please, God, spare us anymore interference from Obama. He's done enough damage to our country.

    First, thanks to you and Bill O'Reilly for your investigative reporting. It may be the only hope I have for the Country I love to get the truth. At 81, I stay appalled on a daily basis of the lies we are being told by the so-called media giants. I find myself wondering when the next Civil War will begin, or perhaps it already has. Please keep up your good work.
