VP Kamala all in for Gay Pride Month, identifies her pronouns, dem’s agenda

July 28, 2022

Vice President Kamala Harris was addressing a group of people with disabilities, including some with visual impairment, which explains the blue suit description. Her appearance was part of the June Gay Pride month festivities, which “celebrate” perversions, now trendily repackaged for mainstream consumption — and being fed to America‘s children by educrats as reported by WND which covered the extreme leftist agenda promoted at the recent National Education Association convention. Make it a point to read the linked article. Knowledge is power.

Leftist NEA has more pressing matters than educating America’s children

July 10, 2022

Parents who object to radical agenda labeled “domestic terrorists”

The National Education Association (NEA) has an agenda that would likely stun most parents who mistakenly think it is dedicated to educating their children. Bob Unruh (bio), reporting for WND, headlines his must read coverage, “NEA announces its priorities for teachers: abortion and LGBT agenda.”

He reveals, “The convention of the nation’s largest teacher’s union reportedly drew some 6,000 delegates to Chicago, where many of the decisions are all but determined by NEA’s staff and board officers. Delegates can raise business items and resolutions, but the 6,000 delegates represent a tiny slice of the NEA’s 3 million members.”

Previously, the New York Post editorially covered Biden’s U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland referring to concerned parents as “domestic terrorists.”

Open Secrets details the astronomical donations from teacher’s unions which gave $hundreds of millions to leftwing candidates and causes during the last election cycle. Republicans were not worthy of contributions from the teachers and their organizations. These people spend more time with America’s children than many parents do. Pay attention and discuss current news and politics with your children…or we will lose our country. They are getting daily infusions of indoctrination by the union members.

Cornell University obscures American history

July 3, 2022

Someone complained, and it was gone:” Cornell biology professor Randy Wayne

Ivy League universities have always had a certain panache that elevated them over other colleges and state universities. Cornell University has recently removed itself from that lofty pedestal.

Jennifer Kabbany, editor of the College Fix, reports “Cornell library removes Gettysburg Address, Lincoln bust.”

As Americans prepare to celebrate Independence Day — commemorating the Declaration of Independence from British rule following the Revolutionary War, and ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776 — this article is a must read.  It reveals how our history has transmogrified into nothing more than a soiled past, rife with transgressions and weaklings rather than Founding heroes.

American history is given short shrift in recent years. Ask a teen or college student a few pertinent questions and you’ll quickly learn that our public school system has failed in educating, which is the obligation it is paid to fulfill. Indoctrination is the name of the game as evidenced by this shocking information from Open Secrets…which follows the money in politics.

Then read this fact-filled Fox News report by Tyler Olson, “Biden received more money from teachers unions than any other candidate in 2020.”

Socialist Bernie Sanders, older than most of their grandfathers, won the 18-to-24-year-old primary vote by significant margins in 2020.Those who know American history realize the United States and the Allied Forces fought and won World War II against socialistic lies and gruesome cruelties. Young voters, disastrously, have no such knowledge. They have been dumbed down to the point that they voted for Biden.

As college costs surge, UofA gifts free degrees to 22 “tribes”

July 1, 2022

Want that “as nearly free as possible” AZ university education promised in  Article 11, Sec. 6 of our state Constitution?  According to this April 14, 2022 edition of the University of Arizona’s Wildcat newspaper, the Arizona Board of Regents did what has become routine, and hiked the rates at all three universities: ASU, UA and NAU. They attempt to confound us with fancy terminology such as “collaborations of key partnerships,” but don’t be conned by the deceitful educrat doublespeak.

Now we find that the University of Arizona is gifting free college tuition to members of 22 Indian tribes, now referred to as “Native Americans,“ a title not accorded to other Americans with generational roots on American soil.

Some questions?  What constitutes a “tribe“? What percentage of tribal DNA qualifies a claimant?  If your heritage includes multiple tribes, can you continue accumulating free degrees?

Why would this sweet financial deal be limited to Ak-Chin, Cocopah, Yavapai, Mohave, Hopi, Apache, Tohono O’odham (who changed their name from Papago), Gila River, Salt River Pima-Maricopa etc.? There are 17 federally recognized tribes completely within the borders of Arizona and others that overlap our border. Nearly one-quarter of land in Arizona is reservation land. Currently, there are twenty-six tribal owned lucrative casinos located across ten counties of the state. Cannabis is advertised and sold at the casinos.

Why are members of Africa’s estimated 3,000 tribes excluded from this ridiculous freebie? Jewish Americans are descended from the Biblical 12 Tribes of Israel, detailed in Deuteronomy 27: 12–13. Are those tribes worthy? No…nor should they be.

Dropping free money on selected groups is never a good idea. The Regents, none of whom are needy, should know that.

Uneducated students protest US Constitution’s 2nd Amendment

June 12, 2022

In a coordinated effort, anti-gun rallies were reportedly held in hundreds of U.S. cities across the nation Saturday. Many were student-led.

The Second Amendment (read the brief highlighted reference to the impact of Heller decision) to our Constitution took a back seat to emotion, as the rallying cry of the group known as “March for Our Lives,“ made restricting gun ownership the focus of their attention.

From its website, under the heading, Our Demands for the Biden-Harris Administration, is this absurdity carrying the price tag of “at least $1 billion in funding”:

“Much like the COVID-19 pandemic, and the HIV pandemic before it, the gun violence epidemic requires a unified, national plan with a public health lens. President Biden must appoint a Director of Gun Violence Prevention and dedicate at least $1 billion in funding to combat gun violence, rebuilding our research and data collection infrastructure while supporting community-based violence intervention programming. March for Our Lives is urging the Biden-Harris Administration to lead the federal response by meeting the following demands…listed under the link in this paragraph.”

The New York Post provides insights into the abysmal lack of American history taught in our public schools as teachers admit they “teach to the test.” What would motive students’ desire to protect our unique Constitutional-based nation, when they are ignorant of what separates us from Socialist and Communist dictatorships?

It is the public school system run by unionist teachersnot the Second Amendment — that desperately needs to be reevaluated.

Sexual predator Tucson H.S. counselor arrested, pushed LGBTQ+ studies

May 16, 2022

Blaze Media and multiple other sources including Fox News carried the news report detailing the arrest of Tucson High Magnet counselor, Zobella Brazil Vinik, 29, who has been arrested for having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female Tucson student. Don’t hold your breath hoping for a report in the far left local newspaper. Though the investigation, launched May 3, has been widely reported this criminality is not on its politically correct radar.

To no one’s surprise, Vinik is a democrat.

Sporting hot pink streaked hair, Vinik, divorced from another woman, and using politically correct pronouns, focuses on homosexually as students lack basic civics instruction, have scant knowledge about American history and that of Western civilization, geography, no longer have signatures due to the elimination of cursive and have marginal math abilities.

Instead, they are inundated with gender studies and a newly implemented drag show, as reported by AZ Free News. The news source carries a stunning report on transgenderism, diversity, equity, and inclusion — the latest topics that supersede education fundamentals.

This headlined report U.S. Education Rankings Are Falling Behind the Rest of the World is crucial reading. It describes the dismal education reality being provided to American students as compared worldwide. The U.S. ranks near the bottom in a survey of students’ math skills in 30 industrialized countries.

Eric A. Hanushek, an economist at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University, estimated that the U.S. economy would grow 4.5% in the next 20 years if our students’ math and science skills were as strong as the rest of the world’s.

Those facts somehow escaped Zobella Brazil Vinik’s counseling notice. She was busy priming and soliciting teen female students for sex.

Expansion of parental rights in education belittled in local newspaper

May 3, 2022

Duplicity reigns at leftist Arizona Republic

Rating prominent placement in the Valley & State section is a report headlined, “These contentious education bills now law.”

The report begins with these words:

“Two controversial education bills that would create procedures for parents to review library books and allow parents to sue if they believe a school has violated their access to a student’s records were signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey.” 

The slippery, agenda-driven reporter obviously means “their” child rather than “a” child’s student records.  This deceit is standard operating procedure at the Hillary-endorsing, open-border promoting, failing newspaper.

Reporter Yana Kunichoff, a Chicago transplant, cites House Bill 2161 and House Bill 2439 as examples of what she views as egregious parental overreaches that warrant the descriptive words “controversial” and “contentious.”

If you are among the few who still subscribe to this overpriced, putrid garbage masquerading as news…Cancel! Tired of having your intelligence insulted? Cancel! Call 1-800-332-6733. You’ll get someone in the Philippines who is paid 50% less than an American-based employee as the dying newspaper tries to keep costs down.

Gender identity lessons invade N.J. 1st grade classrooms

April 11, 2022

This revealing editorial, “NJ gender-identity lessons for first graders prove parents were right to worry,” by Karol Marcowicz was prominently displayed in the New York Post over the weekend.

The disturbing lesson plans are being foisted upon young children, teaching them that their gender is malleable.

Randi Weingarten, the former president of the American Federation of Teachers, (AFT) wields tremendous clout as an AFL–CIO union leader and a lawyer. She is also a lesbian married to another woman as reported in Teachers for Choice, an organization that opposes government imposed medical mandates in order for any Americans — especially educators — to remain employed.  To no one’s surprise, Weingarten has long opposed charter schools and school choice.

The AFT was the first national union to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential primaries. These are the people who influence America’s students each and every weekday.

Open Secrets reveals teachers unions have steadily amped up their political involvement: From 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million — an all-time high. Even more than most labor unions, they have little use for Republicans, giving democrats at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties since as far back as 1990, where Open Secrets data begins. Check out where they see fit to place their considerable resources.

This is all important reading.

Biden fails at all else, now tackles eradicating cancer

February 3, 2022

Medical authority Joe Biden pushes Dr. Tony Fauci aside

When we see the words, “Dr. Biden,” the fawning media has conferred the aura of a medical doctor to First Lady Jill and her education degree, used as a honorary title within the educational establishment. She has no medical credentials.

Turns out, there is another Dr. Biden in the White House. Joe Biden isn’t focusing on trying to halt dementia, since he has fallen victim to its ravages. Now we are told he plans to reactivate Barack Obama’s plan to eradicate cancer, which Obama previously put Biden in charge of tackling. This 2016 White House press statement shows it’s a reliable diversionary tactic.  It’s now being hauled out as the economy is collapsing, the administration is needlessly spending $trillions on the 2,456 page “Build Back Better” Act,* has allowed millions of illegal aliens to breach our border, untested during the pandemic that has closed schools and pressured citizens to get vaxxed or lose their jobs. We are also viewed as unreliable by our allies, who witnessed the debacle in the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, ignoring intelligence recommendations, leaving  Americans behind and resulting in the needless deaths of 13 U.S. service personnel.

The prominently displayed, above-the-fold headline in today’s edition of the toadying, far-leftwing Arizona Republic describes Biden’s “Moonshot” plan to cut cancer deaths by at least 50% over the next 25 years. He declares it’s “doable” within the next 25 years.  Facing his 80th birthday this year, it’s a good bet he won’t be around to answer  for this grandiose declaration.

“We can do this. I promise you, we can do this. For all those we lost, for all those we miss. We can end cancer as we know it.” Biden‘s surrogates released this Fact Sheet: “President Biden Reignites Cancer Moonshot to End Cancer as We Know It,” on February 2, 2022, nearly a decade after Obama put Biden in charge of the same program.
