New York City public schools have been blasted for introducing a children's book that features a 'queer' main character that hails AOC and her Squad, while mocking Mitch McConnell. A book titled: What You Don't Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood has reportedly been distributed to NYC school libraries, according to the New York Post. The picture book is intended for 10 and 11-year-olds and is reportedly labeled as part of the Universal Mosaic independent reading curriculum, which the Department of Education is expected to launch next year. The book was written and illustrated by Brooklynite Anastasia Higginbotham and centers around a black 'gay sixth-grader'

NYC Public Schools used to have a reputation for excellence in education. Not anymore. AND Parents may be simply “TOO BUSY” to pay much attention to what actually goes on in the classroom or school library these days. So the Teacher’s union continues to defend incompetent teachers and “experts” get to force kids into things for which they would normally need parental supervision and permission. That PARENTS might be the proper judges for such “teachings” goes against the liberal mindset of “the ends justify the means.” IN the final analysis, it is PARENTS who are the guardians of their kids and as such they are responsible to see that their kids get special information or educational materials from them and not from those who (lately) may not have their kids’ best interests at heart.

Want to read an example of indoctrination? This book is it. It is just the author’s thoughts on Jesus and has no connection with the person presented in the Bible. People can write as many books as they want regarding their ideas on religion, but to have this completely erroneous depiction of Jesus and His teachings has no place in public education. The basic tenets of the faith, the Ten Commandments and those concepts that were a part of our founding philosophy which have served us well for centuries have been a great loss to society. They were basic truths of love, respect, honesty, law and order, and responsibility that enabled us to create a society where we could live together in peace and harmony and yet hold to our personal religious beliefs. These were not radical ideas but common sense values that were needed to create respect for one another and present a cohesive set of ideas that would bring us together. The country had a sense of restraint and although we lived together within the parameters of these basic tenets of faith we were free to worship as we chose. You didn’t have to subscribe to any of it but the country was in agreement to the value of the system and respected it. Now that all has been stripped away. Respect, self-respect and actual tolerance has been abandoned in order to appease the most radical among us. They have determinedly torn at the fabric that made it possible to create a civil society and are now actively rejecting the very thing that made this country work so well. The chaos their agenda creates is toxic to civility because it is so destructive. They want us to abandon our faith, the ideas that made this country great, and embrace their chaos and depravity and people are just not going to stand for that. We have been attacked and bullied and now they are actively and openly indoctrinating our children in a philosophy that is dark, depressing and hopelessly focused on sexuality. We are more than that and our children deserve better. What the left offers is a dead end. It is as simple as light versus darkness and children need the light. We all do.

it's been almost 60 years since Malcolm X said the biggest enemy of the black race is the white liberal. White liberals are still speaking for blacks as if blacks are unable to speak for themselves. Blacks are not allowed to speak on the dim plantation unless they are uttering the white liberal narrative- see cnn and msnbc.

This is beyond horrific. Kids' reading and math scores are lower than ever and this is what the former mayor is putting on library shelves? As with everything else the dems have done and are doing to our beloved country, this is shameful and horrifying. My three granddaughters are going to Catholic school next year, thank God.

Foreign nationals protested outside of the United States Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, demanding President Joe Biden end the Title 42 authority that has helped stem illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border over the last two years.Months ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that on May 23 the Biden administration would end Title 42. The authority was first issued by former President Donald Trump in 2020 and has allowed federal immigration officials to quickly remove illegal aliens from the U.S.In April, Trump-appointed Judge Robert R.

Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: You’ve said that you’ve been disappointed in Republican leaders for not standing up for traditional Republican values. We just had this awful shooting in Buffalo, New York. Liz Cheney, Congresswoman, said, “House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy and anti-Semitism.

Instead, under cross-examination by Special Counsel John Durham's team, Mook was forced to concede two extraordinary facts. First, the Clinton campaign wasn't "totally confident" about the accuracy of computer data suggesting

More than 70,000 pounds of baby formula arrived in the United States on Sunday via military aircraft, President Joe Biden announced, as his top economics adviser pledged stores could see replenished supplies 'as early as this week.' The shipment from the US military's Ramstein Air Base in Germany is the first in Biden's Operation Fly Formula program, aimed at ramping up international imports of baby formula to raise US supply. It's one of several measures the president unveiled to mitigate the increasingly dire baby formula shortage that's plaguing Americans nationwide - which has already led to multiple reports of hospitalized children.

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has released its latest reliability assessment for the summer of 2022 and, to put it mildly, the news is not good. In far too many states, the power grid is already nearly at full capacity, and in the next few months, that capacity will be exceeded. This isn’t a question of “if” or really even “when.” It’s just a fact. Industry experts know this and have been trying to sound the alarm for several years.

The New York Post reported: The US and its NATO allies should prepare a “devastating” response to potential Russian nuclear action, Sen. Mitt Romney said on Saturday. The call to action comes on the heels of threats from the Kremlin and warnings from Russian diplomats that the country’s Ukraine invasion could lead to a nuclear strike, the Utah Republican wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times.

It’s not even on my radar,” he said, adding that Harris, who has drawn criticism regarding her performance as vice president, should succeed President Joe Biden, the Chronicle noted.

The Biden administration privately acknowledged late last month that a mathematical error is delaying the federal government’s offshore oil and gas program. In an April 29 letter to industry leaders obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that a subagency “discovered a miscalculation” that has caused a massive backlog in permitting. Richard Spinrad acknowledged in his letter that the National Marine Fisheries Service—the subagency tasked with analyzing the impact of offshore drilling projects on wildlife—has used faulty computer modeling on such impacts. As a result, Spinrad wrote, the subagency overestimated wildlife effects, delaying permitting on existing leases.
