What history? I'd bet it all about victimhood. Maybe bath house etiquette? Proper attire for a gay march? Gender selection considerations? Get your children out of public schools! It may be the best thing you will ever do for your child!

Remember when Ellen's sitcom was canceled after she came out? She was on some talk show, crying, and said gay people should be celebrated. I firmly believe she, and a president I won't name, are behind all this gay/trans onslaught. Who on earth wants their child subjected to this stuff in school? It's just wrong.

Here's a novel idea: Just teach History. Who cares who the historical person sleeps with? Teach the events that have shaped our past and affect our future. The choice of bedmates be damned!

I don't think including in history lessons people who happen to be gay is a big deal. I would prefer curriculum focus on achievements and events, regardless of the orientation of the people involved. For example, Hadrian was a homosexual. He is a significant person in Western history. Include him. Fine. But I don't need to know about famous drag queens unless I am studying pop culture. Excluding people on the basis of their orientation is not useful and neither is including them for that reason. Let people be people and report on what's of consequence and significance. Does it matter to me whether Churchill preferred women (his devoted wife) over men? Nope. What matters is that he defeated the Nazis and saved the world from German totalitarianism. King James gave us the greatest piece of English literature: The "Authorized" or "King James" version of the Bible. (The Bible is more than that, but the KJV is also English literature.) King James was as gay as a picnic basket. Who cares?!

Here's an idea. How about just teaching about significant people in history without emphacizing their sexuality? I'm sure I learned about LGBTQ figures in history without having that shoved down my throat (Amelia Earhardt and Eleanor Roosevelt come to mind). But that's the whole purpose, right?

A history of aids, homosexual manslaughter on another homosexual, violence in the advocacy of anti-social behavior, “acting out” intimidation of so-called “straights”, recruitment of children as homosexuals in achievement of reproduction, perverting Christianity 666... A curriculum about which the country can certainly be proud and promote.

LGBTQ goes back thousands of years. Who cares? It isn’t a big thing, regardless of how brave the gay people believe themselves to be. We wouldn’t have hummingbirds if they (hummingbirds) all decided to be gay. Sexual attraction exists, regardless of the irritation- anger of the gay folk. So have at it, sex yourselves into oblivion, the rest (most) of us don’t even care.

There is no remaining doubt anymore. Public schools are sick, deranged, perverted propaganda outlets now and wholly owned by the Death Party. What's next? Mandatory teachings on the wonders of pedophilia? How about assisted suicide when you don't feel like you like life anymore? That one would be a winner for the raging hormone teenage set.

Jeffrey Epstein had a bizarre portrait which appeared to be of Bill Clinton in a dress hanging in his Manhattan mansion, DailyMailTV can reveal. The picture depicting the former president apparently lounging on a chair in the Oval Office, wearing red heels and posing suggestively in a blue dress redolent of Monica Lewinsky was in a room off the stairway of the Upper East Side townhouse. The painting was secretly snapped inside the pedophile's lavish $56 million home in October 2012, four years after Epstein completed his sweetheart deal for prostitution of a minor and seven years before he was accused of running a sex trafficking ring

Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.” “There is a group of people—politicos—who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.” “Who am I, then, Fredo?”

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

Is it possible prosecutors have lost track of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator in his pedophile ring?

Those who know her say that it’s possible she is as much of a Houdini as Epstein. Both of them liked having secrets, and the way those secrets kept people off balance. “Jeffrey always wanted to give the impression that he was an international man of mystery—‘I control everyone
