. "There is no clearer example than the Biden administration’s new effort aimed at indoctrinating America’s schoolchildren with some of the most toxic and anti-American theories ever conceived. It is vital for Americans to understand what this initiative would do, what drives it, and, most importantly, how we can stop it."

“Children are suddenly needing to lay out their race, their gender, their sexual orientation, their nation of origin, their religion, whether or not they identify as the sex they were born with .. and then they learn that these identities fall into a category of oppressor or oppressed.”
A parent-led rebellion against Critical Race Theory is storming school boards across the country and demanding accountability for what is being taught to American children.
At least 165 local and national groups have formed to combat Critical Race Theory (CRT) instruction in schools across the U.S., an NBC analysis found.
Many of these groups were founded by parents appalled to discover what was being taught to their children. Their advocacy has launched small town CRT debates onto the national stage, prompted anti-CRT legislation from Republican lawmakers and more.

Governor DeSantis - Full pardons for all Floridians facing criminal or civil penalty for disobeying local COVID-19 restrictions and mandates through Executive Order.
DeSantis pointed to former gym owners Mike and Jillian Carnevale as examples of Floridians who have faced criminal penalties, including possible jail time, for not complying with local mask mandates at their former business in Broward County.
The couple had operated a gym, now shuttered, and disobeyed Broward County mask rules. He was handcuffed and arrested 3 times for not enforcing facial coverings during strenuous exercise. She was also arrested.
“Floridians like Mike and Jillian Carnevale should have never faced criminal charges for not requiring masks in their business. We took action to reject the overreach of local authorities through unnecessary and unscientific mask mandates. No business should face economic ruin and be punished for alleged violations of local orders that are unreasonably restrictive of rights and liberties. Let's focus on the real criminals," said DeSantis.
. Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott ..
.. announced that state officials are making a major down payment on a border wall that is going to be built for the state to help respond to Joe Biden’s border crisis.
Abbott directed Bryan Collier, Executive Director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, to “transfer $250 million in General Revenue to the Disaster Fund within the Trusteed Programs within the Office of the Governor” for “a down payment to begin design and construction of physical barriers on voluntarily donated private and public lands that border this state and Mexico.”
“Last week, Texas and Arizona called for help to secure the southern border. I’m proud to announce that Florida is stepping up to help the effort and to protect our residents from the harms caused by open borders.” ~ Gov. Ron DeSantis
"Governors Abbott and Ducey recently sent out a call for help to every state in the nation, needing additional law enforcement manpower and other resources to aid with border security .. the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back.”
"America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American. The Biden Administration ended policies implemented by President Trump that were curbing illegal immigration, securing our border, and keeping Americans safe."
Volusia Dems' election overturned
In a dramatic twist, Volusia Democrats resolved a disputed Dec. 8, 2020, Volusia County Democratic Executive Committee election, with Jewel Dickson reclaiming the chair seat from 29 year-old Richard Thripp.
- As a precaution against the COVID-19 pandemic, the December party election was conducted in a Zoom videoconferencing meeting, and technical problems left some voting Democratic precinct committee members unable to cast ballots that night.
- 12 ballots were later allowed to be cast provisionally but were then discounted by Thripp.
- Ahead of a scheduled vote before the Florida Democratic Party Judicial Council in January, both sides agreed those 12 provisional ballots should have been tallied. (according to documents provided to The News-Journal)
- 62 Democratic precinct captains — largely supportive of Thripp — had submitted oaths that were invalid. The oaths had been notarized online by a notary who was not authorized to do so.
On Facebook, some posts made reference to going backward and sticking with a status quo that has seen Volusia Republicans overtake Democrats in registrants in recent years while sweeping the 2020 legislative races.
“I'm furious,” said Travis Henville, former communications director for Volusia Young Democrats. “The old guard wasted six months of all of our time in an attempt to cling to power (after presiding over a decade's worth of increasingly extreme Democratic losses) and prevailed on a technicality .. no one I know thinks some minuscule notarization oversight justifies overturning the result.”
Henville said some Volusia progressives are considering reviving the Daytona Beach chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

The three top threats to the United States are: (1) The corrupt United States Intelligence Community, (2) Big Tech’s ideological manipulation of information, and (3) corporate U.S. media as a propaganda tool; in that order. There are other big issues, but those three create the ripple effect that is destroying our Constitutional Republic.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis discusses a variety of current events, issues of importance and his positions. However, the primary focus of this interview is the #2 threat from Big Tech .. and what DeSantis is doing in Florida to confront the dangers of ideological manipulation, censorship and deplatforming.

. Iowa Bans Critical Race Theory
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed legislation Tuesday banning critical race theory from being taught and promoted in government agencies, schools, or state-funded universities.
“Critical Race Theory is about labels and stereotypes, not education. It teaches kids that we should judge others based on race, gender or sexual identity, rather than the content of someone’s character,” Reynolds said in a statement, according to the Des Moines Register. “I am proud to have worked with the legislature to promote learning, not discriminatory indoctrination.”
Keith Flaugh of Florida Citizens Alliance spoke with The Republican Club of SE Volusia on June 10th about his group's ongoing fight to clean up the curriculum in Florida schools, banning Critical Race Theory and getting rid of content that borders on pornography. His group is also helping promote Hope Scholarships and Parental Choice on schools.
Sen. Tom Cotton: The United States should start punishing China
“China’s chances of ever conceding that they’re responsible for this virus is zero. But that new report from the Lawrence Livermore Lab just confirms what I’ve been saying from the very beginning, just use your common sense. This virus emerged in a city larger than New York, just a few blocks down the road from the lab where they research these viruses.
Every bit of evidence we have points to those labs. And it’s past time to hold China accountable for their negligence and their deceitfulness in unleashing this plague on the world. There [are] lots of things we could do.
We could revoke their permanent most-favored-nation status, a bad mistake that we made twenty years ago. We could team up with our allies and take back the very favorable financing terms they get from international financial institutions like the World Bank. We could take away visas from Chinese Communist Party members and their kids so they can’t send their kids to American schools anymore. There’s no end to the things we can do to make China pay for unleashing this plague and we should start right now.”

“No single entity exercises a more pervasive, nefarious influence across a wide range of American industries and institutions than the Communist Party of China.”
With the phrase “Stop CCP Influence” displayed in bold letters across his podium, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed two bills to thwart foreign meddling in Florida’s government and education system. The bills (HB 1523) and (HB 7017) are primarily aimed at China. (HB 1523) creates the crime of “trafficking in trade secrets” and enhances criminal penalties if the secrets are stolen and provided to a foreign government. (HB 7017) aims to curb foreign influence in the state’s academic research institutions.
“If you’re somebody that will light your hair on fire because Georgia is requiring voter ID .. but yet you’re lining your pocket with money from China and not a peep about the slave labor that’s going on over there .. you my friend are a hypocrite.”
Academia, he explained, is “permeated” with influence, detailing how researchers are getting indicted at major institutions “for being in cahoots with the Chinese government.” The corporate media and entertainment industry are no better, he continued.
“You look at corporate media and entertainment industry in this country. They are in the pocket of the Communist Party of China. I mean, if Hollywood comes up with a movie the CCP doesn’t like, they get censored,” he said, adding that the corporate media assisted in suppressing the truth about the lab leak theory. He also noted the deep financial ties the corporate media have to the CCP.
Big Tech, DeSantis continued, also runs interference for CCP, while celebrities and athletes continue to “virtue-signal” for things in the U.S., yet almost all of them fail to do the same for the atrocities the CCP commits.
“Enough is enough. We’ve got to start fighting back.”

President Donald Trump delivered a blistering attack on Joe Biden's record and cancel culture, vowing to fight aggressively in 2022 and beyond against the "disgrace" of left-wing radicalism gripping the country.
The Boss tees up fight for 2022 and beyond
At the Saturday convention, Trump slammed the Biden administration’s policies several months into the Democrat’s administration, linking it to much-maligned "critical race theory" and socialism. "It’s a disgrace, what’s happening to our country."
"Our border is wide open, illegal immigration is skyrocketing at a level we’ve never seen before. Drugs are pouring in, gas prices are soaring, our industries are being pillaged by foreign cyber attacks," Trump said in a rousing speech.
Trump slammed U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci, who is currently advising the White House on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Fauci held that role in the Trump administration last year but ultimately had a falling-out with Trump as the pandemic wore on. Trump claimed Fauci was "not a great doctor, but a great promoter. He’s been wrong on almost every issue."
