More Than 40 Families Pull Children From School That Forced Transgender Lesson on 5-Year-Olds

Forty-one families have pulled 73 children from the elite Sacramento-area Rocklin Academy charter schools as the board continues to defend a kindergarten transgender lesson several parents say traumatized their 5-year-olds and that parents weren’t told about beforehand.

A mother who pulled her son from Grade 6 and daughter from Grade 3 at Rocklin Academy Gateway, where the incident took place, has kept a tally of parents who’ve done likewise.

“It was just the tipping point for most families,” the parent, who asked her name not be published, told LifeSiteNews.

Some parents pulled their kids “solely for this,” while other had “multiple reasons, but yes, this was part of everyone’s reason,” she said.

The controversy erupted after a lesson in which the boy appeared in girl’s clothes and was reintroduced to his kindergarten classmates as a girl. (Read more from “More Than 40 Families Pull Children From School That Forced Transgender Lesson on 5-Year-Olds” HERE)

Fifth Grade Teacher: ‘My Prefix Is MX.’

The influential Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., is warning parents of “brazen” indoctrination plans being pursued by teachers, even in elementary schools.

The latest instance, FRC explains, is in Florida, where a fifth-grade teacher sent home a note to parents mandating that students use only politically correct pronouns in class.

“One thing that you should know about me is that I use gender neutral terms. My prefix is Mx. (pronounced Mix). Additionally, my pronouns are ‘they, them, their’ instead of ‘he, his, she, hers.’”

The Tallahassee Democrat newspaper reported math and science teacher Chloe Bressack gave the instructions to students and parents with the full support of Paul Lambert, the principal at Canopy Oaks.

“We support her preference in how she’s addressed, we certainly do. I think a lot of times it might be decided that there is an agenda there, because of her preference – I can tell you her only agenda is teaching math and science at the greatest level she can,” Lambert said.

Muslim Doctor Accused of Mutilating ‘Countless’ Little Girls Freed

After five months in jail, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, the Detroit-area Muslim doctor accused of mutilating the genitalia of “countless” young girls, was released on a $4.5 million unsecured property bond Tuesday.

“I was there in the courtroom. I saw it all,” said Elizabeth Yore, an international child-welfare advocate and leader of the #EndFGMToday initiative.

Yore said Dr. Nagarwala, 44, appeared Tuesday before Judge Bernard Friedman in an orange jumpsuit, her head covered by a hijab or Muslim headscarf. She remained silent during the entire pretrial detention hearing.

By the end, the doctor flashed a brief smile when she was told by the judge she would be released from jail pending her trial, which will likely occur in 2018. She then wept, which her attorney called “tears of joy.”

Until Tuesday, Nagarwala had been the only one of eight defendants in the nation’s first FGM case being held without bond. (Read more from “Muslim Doctor Accused of Mutilating ‘Countless’ Little Girls Freed” HERE)

Judge: OK to Starve Disabled Patients Without Court Order

A judge has ruled that Court permission will not be needed to remove food and fluids from severely brain damaged patients, a move which has caused concern among opponents of euthanasia.

Unlike other forms of medical care, the decision to withdraw food and fluids from patients in a “permanent vegetative state” (the term “unresponsive wakefulness syndrome” is now generally preferred) has until now been referred to the Court of Protection, even if doctors and relatives are in agreement.

Now, the decision by Mr Justice Jackson means those cases will no longer have to come to court. He made his ruling in a case concerning a 50-year-old woman who suffered from a degenerative illness for 14 years. The patient, known in court as M, had Huntington’s disease and was bed-ridden in hospital and fed by a tube. The Court heard that she had shown no sign of awareness for 18 months.

Mr Justice Jackson agreed with her family and doctors that withdrawing nutrition from her would be in her best interests. The tube was removed and she died in August. Mr Justice Jackson said in his view the case should not have come to court. (Read more from “Judge: OK to Starve Disabled Patients Without Court Order” HERE)

‘Like a Slave:’ Three Muslim Women, at Least One of Them Bloodied, Called Police on Imran Awan

Multiple women in relationships with Imran Awan, the indicted former IT aide for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have recently called Virginia law enforcement and alleged being abused by him, police reports obtained under Virginia’s Freedom of Information Act show.

Officers found one of the women bloodied and she told them she “just wanted to leave,” while the second said she felt like a “slave,” according to Fairfax County Police reports obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. A third woman claimed she was being kept “in captivity.”

The third woman is Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said in court documents that Awan invoked his authority as a congressional employee to intimidate immigrant women, in part by telling them he had the power to have people kidnapped.

All but two of the nearly two dozen Democratic women Awan worked for in the House declined to comment on the police reports. (Read more from “‘Like a Slave:’ Three Muslim Women, at Least One of Them Bloodied, Called Police on Imran Awan” HERE)

Hillary’s New Political Group Is Now Using Her Granddaughter to Beg for Cash

Hillary Clinton’s political group, “Onward Together,” sent out a fundraising email on Wednesday discussing Clinton’s gardening activities with her granddaughter and informing supporters that Clinton’s mood is “pretty concerned” but “okay.”

The email, ostensibly from Clinton, explains that people keep asking her how she is doing “over and over again.”

“I’m pretty concerned” “as an American,” the email says. “But as a person, I’m okay. It’s nice to be able to spend so much time at home with Bill and our dogs, and to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while.”

The email is titled “peas and peppers” — all lower case. The “peas and peppers” title refers to time Clinton says she is spending gardening with her granddaughter. (Read more from “Hillary’s New Political Group Is Now Using Her Granddaughter to Beg for Cash” HERE)

Abolitionist Gubernatorial Candidate Gains Steam With Controversial Video

A candidate for Oklahoma Governor released a controversial ad Sept. 12 criticizing the state’s pro-life regulatory efforts as tools to keep abortion legal.

Dan Fisher is running on a campaign platform to abolish abortion, restore state sovereignty, audit state agencies and limit government. He said in the video that pro-life bills passed in Oklahoma have failed to treat abortion as murder, despite the fact that most pro-life politicians claim to believe it is. He included examples of actual pro-life legislation passed in Oklahoma: a bill requiring mothers to wait 72 hours before they can kill their babies, a bill requiring mothers to kill their babies within the first 20 weeks of life, and bills requiring abortionists to offer mothers ultrasounds before their babies can be killed. He also referenced a so-called pro-life measure that has gained traction across the U.S. in recent years, which prohibits abortionists from selling the corpses of their victims but in no way prohibits them from turning their victims into corpses to begin with.

He also pointed out that many national pro-life organizations refer to Oklahoma as the most pro-life state in the union, due to its abundance of regulatory measures. “In a state that murders nearly 6,000 children every year, what does that even mean?” he asked.

Fisher also addressed the common objection that states must fight abortion within the confines of the infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, saying the state ought to simply ignore the Supreme Court on this issue. “The courts are often wrong,” he said, hailing as evidence the 1857 Dred Scott vs. Sandford case, in which the Supreme Court ruled that black people were not fully human and could not be afforded equal rights with white people. “They’re wrong now. They’re not God.”

Fisher is one of the first gubernatorial candidates in history to explicitly run as an abolitionist against pro-life candidates, and the video ad is the first of its kind to use thoroughgoing abolitionist rhetoric to call attention to the failed compromising strategies of the pro-life movement. “I’m not running for governor of Oklahoma as a pro-lifer,” Fisher said. “I am not running to regulate abortion. I am running to abolish it.”

Melania Trump Halts Use of Photo as College Replies With ‘I’m Sorry’

If there is nothing more American than a crafty advertising gimmick, then a school in Croatia might be becoming more American by the minute.

Last week, Americki Institut, an English-language school in Croatia, took out a billboard bearing the face of first lady Melania Trump with the caption, “Just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English.”

The school did not bother with the nicety of asking the first lady.

Twitter ensured the advertisement was viewed around the world, giving the school more publicity than it might have expected.

Then Melania Trump saw it and took legal action.

The first lady decided that the school’s scheme to boost enrollment in English classes reeked more of illegality than creativity, and — as a former model who knows the value of her image — sued to have the offending advertisement removed within 24 hours.

The school got the message. The billboard in the Croatian capital of Zagreb is down.

“I’m satisfied with the fact that the school admitted that they violated the law and that they are ready to remove the billboards and ads,” said Nataša Pirc-Musar, who represents Trump as various businesses in Europe try to capitalize on her fame. “We are still analyzing possible further legal steps.”

Pirc-Musar said the school has apologized, but that the statement also needed to be published by the Croatian and Slovenian state news agencies.

“We are very sorry that the billboards were misunderstood as something intended to mock the U.S. first lady,” said Ivis Buric, a spokeswoman for the school. “It was meant to be something positive, to show her as a role model.”

Despite those words, a visitor to the school’s Facebook page might call its response more cheeky than chastened.

In place of the Melania Trump image that formerly graced its Facebook page, there is now a video of 1960s singer Brenda Lee offering the school’s response in the form of the song, “I’m Sorry.” (For more from the author of “Melania Trump Halts Use of Photo as College Replies With ‘I’m Sorry'” please click HERE)

High School Bans American Flags – the Reason Why Will Surprise You

Administrators at a public high school in New Hampshire have banned students from using American flags as props or clothing at a forthcoming pep rally because the administrators are concerned that students will treat the flag disrespectfully.

The site of the flag fracas is Londonderry High School, reports local ABC affiliate WMUR-TV.

A couple dozen Londonderry High student athletes who will organize the pep rally received letters describing the event’s rules last week. Most of the rules were standard fare: no insults about opposing teams, not getting naked — that kind of thing.

The students who received the letter did notice the added rule about the U.S. flag. The rule read: “No use of the American flag. Do not wear, carry, present the American flag on the floor.” (Read more from “High School Bans American Flags – the Reason Why Will Surprise You” HERE)

Parents Get Angry After Actress Teaches Students About Constitution

Angry parents expressed outrage after actress Janine Turner’s “conservative” presentation on the Constitution to fifth and sixth graders at Eubanks Middle School in Southlake, Texas.

Turner, the founder of “Constituting America,” spoke to the middle schoolers on Sept. 12 about patriotism and the meaning of America’s founding document. She gave a lecture to promote “civic engagement and understanding of constitutional rights,” the mission of her nonpartisan organization.

“‘Constituting America’ seeks to promote the Constitution for students of all ages,” according to its website.

“The program itself was great as she talked about love for country and being a good citizen,” said school district spokeswoman Julie Thannum, according to The Dallas Morning News Monday. “It wasn’t until later that we started getting calls and seeing social media postings upset about materials the speaker passed out to the children.” (Read more from “Parents Get Angry After Actress Teaches Students About Constitution” HERE)
