President Biden and AG Garland don’t even realize they have created an avalanche of people who are neophytes in the political field…

David Harsanyi:  How left-wing protesters are justified, but angry moms are ‘domestic terrorists’.

Larry Kudlow:  Biden Turning Justice Department Against Parents in Battle Over Curriculum.

The Biden Administration hit a raw nerve as evidenced by following (and the above columns) pushback by those who know and understand the US Constitution and the fact that education is not a federal issueParents take a stand against FBI crackdown on CRT opponents; The Biden Justice Department’s Lawless Threat against American Parents;  Sen. Josh Hawley Questions ‘Weaponizing’ of FBI to Silence Parents; Attorney General Garland Abuses Power He Doesn’t Have to Threaten Parents; State Attorneys General Warn Against ‘Weaponizing’ FBI to Target Parents; Biden Declares War on the American People; and Biden Criminalizes CRT Dissent/The administration has mobilized the FBI against parents who oppose critical race theory.

What this administration is attempting to do is outrageous; they defend their actions by saying that “all” public officials, i.e., school board members, can not be admonished when they are indoctrinating our children.  Free speech is revered in America; even when we disagree with it.  The members of the National School Boards Association – NSBA – are not given the right to squelch the parents who disagree with their agenda; they put their pants on just like every other person.  IF the Biden Administration is not stopped and US Attorney General Garland does not withdraw his attempt to protect the snowflakes running the NSBA, the chief enforcement officer of the US will be subverting the US Constitution.  If there is violence at any meeting, there are current laws to protect both sides.  What the Biden/Garland team is attempting to do is to stifle free speech and punish people/parents prior to any discussion; another action that is completely against all that America is.  If they succeed in this, what is next?  Having Child Protective Services remove your children from your home?  Think about how far they will try to go, if Biden/Garland is allowed to suppress your rights.

Seth Barron writes how activists care more about teen killers than the teens they kill. While the activists are blind to the overall effects of the message they are sending, one must ask, where are their parents?  The government’s involvement in providing shelter, food, money has destroyed the family unit and has help create the moral morass that allows a 15 year-old to believe crime has little to no consequences and have no respect for the life of another young man.  Henry G. Bohn’s, A Hand-book of Proverbs is credited with the 1831 quote  in a newspaper, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions,” sadly today’s society has proved his ominous statement to be accurate.

Speaking of a decline in society, here is a must read article:  Hochul agrees to consider decriminalizing prostitution.  Assemblyman Richard Gottfried recalls how when he was a freshman member — nearly 50 years ago — how “some senior colleagues openly discussing how lobbyists arranged trysts with prostitutes for them.”  Now he is championing one of the bills looking to decriminalize prostitution. State Chairman Jerry Kassar reacted was: “There is nothing to study here,” Kassar said. “It’s an awful idea. It will create havoc in urban areas and stress throughout the state. You cannot decriminalize sex workers and not have a negative outcome.”

He apologizes to the family of Jim and Sarah Brady, whose lives were altered by what he did. He apologizes to the families of Secret Service Special Agent Tim McCarthy and Metropolitan Police Department Officer Thomas Delahanty.”  If he no longer suffers from the mental illness that caused the horrendous act, shouldn’t he be asking for forgiveness?

Hochul forgotten it was his DOH memo that sent those with COVID-19 back to nursing homes knowing full well that it would spread like “fire through dry grass?”
