Dear Patriots,

The word “horrified” seems best to describe our feelings about Attorney General Garland Merrick authorizing the FBI to go after PARENTS who speak out at local school board meetings about Critical Race Theory, masks, vaxx, and porn. But it is pretty close.

Since we have been working with several of the people caught up in the January 6 situation, we have seen what the FBI is willing to do to private Americans who wish to protest actions of their government, including dragging a 76-year old veteran across his yard by his heels.
There is only ONE reason to do this: to shut up parents desperate to protect their children.
The left and all that entails these days is terrified of you.
They are frightened by your voices, your thoughts and most of all your public display of opinions that diverge from their agenda.
Pointing out their hypocrisy, lies, and lack of common sense is a threat to their power over you. The Biden regime will use the force of the completely corrupt FBI to threaten and pressure you to be silent.
This drastic action by the Biden regime is an act of desperation. They have not been able to keep moms and dads from showing up at leftist school board meetings and throwing their bad decisions back at them. Believe us, they have tried.
They have kept people out of buildings, shut off microphones, turned the cameras away, shortened speaking time and made up rules to keep parents from attending meetings. This has been happening all over America. Parents just keep on coming. Protecting the kids is all that matters as it should.
So, now, the public school boards are asking that the federal government take this unprecedented action because they know they can not control your outrage.

DeSantis Throws Down the Gauntlet: Confronts Garland on Troubling FBI Announcement

QUOTE: Attorney General Merrick Garland made a stunning announcement about having the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices coordinate with federal, state, and local law enforcement to deal with “threats” of violence against school boards and people working in schools.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has championed the rights of parents to speak on behalf of their own children — something that should be self-evident and unquestionable — threw down the gauntlet, speaking out against this troubling announcement from Garland.

“Attorney General Garland is weaponizing the DOJ by using the FBI to pursue concerned parents and silence them through intimidation,” DeSantis tweeted. “Florida will defend the free speech rights of its citizens and will not allow federal agents to squelch dissent.”

1- This story is an excellent example of what is going on in public schools. We honestly thought this was a satire item when we read the headline.  Unforrunately it’s real.
These parents are protecting their children from garbage being forced into their formative minds.

California Parents Sue To End ‘Unconstitutional’ Chant To Aztec Gods In ‘Ethnic Studies’ Curriculum

QUOTE:  According to reports, three California parents are suing to stop the state’s public school system from encouraging students to recite prayers to Aztec gods, which have been worshipped using human sacrifices. Their argument is that doing so violates both the U.S. and California constitutions.

Tezcatlipoca is an Aztec god “honored” using human sacrifices. The World History Encyclopedia explained that the heart of an impersonator of Tezcatlipoca — usually played by a prisoner of war — would be removed with an obsidian knife, and presented as a sacrifice.

The parents are being represented by The Thomas More Society, a group that described the curriculum as “blatantly unconstitutional” in court documents.

“Our clients are not opposed to having students learn about different cultures and religions, including the practices of the Aztecs,” said Paul Jonna, partner at LiMandri & Jonna LLP and Thomas More Society special counsel. “But the California State Board of Education’s approved Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum goes far beyond that by directing students to pray to Aztec deities. This portion of the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum is not only offensive, but blatantly unconstitutional.”

DoD Documents: Over 70% “COVID” Hospitalizations are “Fully Vaccinated” Over 65

QUOTE: Attorney Thomas Renz joined Stew Peters to reveal the highly censored DoD documents proving that the “vaccine” is more dangerous than it is helpful, as the vast majority of patients over 65 hospitalized with “COVID” are more-than-likely experiencing injury from the shots!

3- The vaccines have a very short life span but all of them have serious potential reactions.

More than 500,000 adverse events reported after COVID vaccines, from temps to neuropathy

QUOTE: As of Sept. 27, 2021 there were 569,294 adverse event reports associated with COVID-19 vaccination in the U.S., according to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

The most common disorders reported after COVID-19 vaccinations in the U.S. include temperature-related issues (226,457), skin problems (174,793), and a category that includes movement, muscle, nerve, neuropathy, numbness, and paralysis (164,200)

Battling Delta, New Zealand Abandons Its Zero-Covid Ambitions

QUOTE: The country is changing course seven weeks into a lockdown that has failed to end the outbreak and tested the patience of many residents.

For a year and a half, New Zealand has pursued a strategy of “Covid zero,” closing its borders and quickly enforcing lockdowns to keep the coronavirus in check – a policy it maintained even as other Asia-Pacific countries transitioned to coexisting with the viral threat.

On Monday, New Zealand gave up the ghost.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern acknowledged an end to the elimination strategy seven weeks into a lockdown that has failed to halt an outbreak of the Delta variant, announcing that restrictions would be gradually lifted in Auckland, the country’s largest city

5- James O’Keefe does it again. This time he gets scientists who work at Pfizer to tell us how they are controlled and censored to not talk about the vaccine or the fact that your own immunity is vastly better than the untested shot.

UPDATES: Stories move so fast these days it is hard to keep up.  Here are two follow-ups on items we have mentioned this week.
We were suspicious of the Fake News coverage this Facebook whistleblower was receiving. She is not the first person working inside Facebook to come forward. At least three others have come to Project Veritas with their shocking insider stories.
We do not hear much from them in the fake press. This is a story to continue to watch. but beware what may be happening.

Facebook Whistleblower Is Leftist Activist Repped By Lawyer For ‘Whistleblower’ Behind Trump Impeachment

QUOTE: The Facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen, has a record of donations to far-left Democrats and a history of raising issues about purported bias while at previous employers, a Daily Wire review found. She is working with Democrat operatives to roll out her complaint and has the same lawyers as the anonymous Ukraine “whistleblower” whose allegations led to Donald Trump’s impeachment, but who reportedly turned out to be then-Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisor on the country.

Haugen has made more than twenty federal campaign contributions since 2016, all of which have gone to Democrats, according to Federal Election Commission data. On January 13th, 2020, Haugen sent money to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional campaign and a further contribution to her “Courage to Change” Political Action Committee. One of the most frequent recipients of her donations was the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Her lawyers are now seeking to raise $50,000 on GoFundMe, money they say will go to covering legal expenses for the attorneys, who are otherwise working pro-bono. Those lawyers are Whistleblower Aid, a group founded by Mark Zaid, who previously represented the national security official who alleged that Donald Trump inappropriately pressed the Ukraine president on a phone call to, in turn, investigate whether Joe Biden inappropriately pressed the country to drop an investigation into his son’s firm, Burisma.

Today, in court Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was released while awaiting his court martial. We know this is a difficult situation for him and his whole family and pray it is quickly resolved in his favor.

Lt. Col. Scheller Will Be Released from The Brig

QUOTE: Lt. Col. Scheller, the United States Marine who was arrested for posting public criticism of the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, will be released from the brig Tuesday pending trial.

“Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. is being released from confinement today, Oct. 5, 2021, as a result of a mutual agreement between Lt. Col. Scheller, his Defense counsel, and the Commanding General Training Command,” Capt. Sam Stephenson said in a statement.

“We the People”
Here is the origin of those words. It is good to re-read this in full.
The Preamble to the United States Constitution
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
This is a promise that our Founders made, and a promise we all make as citizens living under the guidance and protection of The Constitution.
It is a promise that Defending the Republic makes and endeavors to uphold. We will continue to work to re-establish Justice.
Thank you for being with us in this fight. We need you. We need each other. We need to support each other.

Hold Fast,
