Department of Education
unveils national 'race theory'
The U.S. Department of Education on April 19 published in the Federal Register a Proposed Rule to ensure that Critical Race Theory (CRT) becomes part of nationwide education curricula.

This less than surprising development is the first step toward hijacking civics and American history studies. President Joe Biden fired the first salvo in support of CRT when he issued an executive order in January dissolving President Trump's 1776 Commission, which sought to reject the claims of the New York Times' 1619 Project that America's founding is permanently tainted by its tolerance of slavery.

In a nutshell, the Education Department's rule seeks to expose the "unbearable human costs of systemic racism" and embrace "teaching and learning practices that reflect the diversity, identities, histories, contributions, and experiences of all students, and create inclusive, supportive and identity-safe learning environments."

Our comments in response to this dangerous proposed rule must be posted to the Federal Register by May 19, 2021. When comments are posted on the FR, they become public information and will be counted, not ignored. Click here to comment. Please share the link. When submitting you will be asked, "What is your comment about?" You will select from a drop-down list. Your humble newsletter editor selected, "Public elementary/secondary school".

How should Americans respond? We can begin by emphasizing that the premise of a reset of school social studies curricula ignores that America's history does not begin and end with "racism", as the proponents of "new" standards profess. America's story is one of redemption, one of progress, innovation and more freedom for all, not for a few. Our history is triumphant in decade after decade. In the classrooms, we should celebrate our history in order for our children to marvel and say, "Americans did that."

Additionally, the Federal Register provides an option to attach a file to your comment. We suggest this graphic image provided by Education First Alliance of North Carolina.

  • Demanding the Moore County school board condemns coercion tactics to push Wuhan virus vaccines among high school students.
  • Requesting appropriate time frame for parents to review in-school vaccine decisions.
  • (Information packets with consent forms did not reach parents until the end of the school day April 23 with instructions that they be returned by April 26).
  • Coercion tactics by Pinecrest High School Principal Stefanie Phillips include warning senior class that universities will not enroll students unvaccinated students, and, "while the vaccine is not currently required to participate in extracurricular activities and athletics, that may change."
  • And: Respect the rights of students and parents; end mask mandates; leave healthcare decision to parents and their physicians.
Board's Hensley:
No virus vaccine school mandates

Moore school board member David Hensley detailed in a Facebook post his views on vaccination clinics being held at Moore County High School Campuses.
  
As long as positive parental consent is required for our young people and HIPPA privacy protocols are followed, I have no issues with the Moore County Health Department using MC School facilities for vaccination programs. 

That being said:

- Vaccination for extracurricular programs: Absent a state or federal law, I am against requiring a CV19 vaccination for participation in extra-curricular activities. If the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) tries to unilaterally implement a vaccine mandate, I will recommend MCS withdraw from the NCHSAA. 

 - Vaccine Mandate to attend a MCS: Absent a state or federal law, I am against requiring a CV19 vaccination to attend or work at Moore County Schools. We should respect the right of our students, their parents and our team members to chose what is best for themselves. Further, we must respect the privacy of their medical decision. 

 - Moore County Schools is not a medical provider. As stated above, I am fine with the health department using MCS facilities. If the health department wants to hang up some factual posters and pass out factual flyers to inform the public, I am fine with that as well. What I am not okay with is Moore County Schools providing any sort of flyers and/or information which appears to take a side, pro or con, on receiving the vaccination. MCS is not a medial provider and should not be giving any medical advice.

Is VP Kamala Harris
profiting from border crisis?

Vice President Kamala Harris hasn’t been to the border to address a crisis she was tasked to help fix — but a children’s book she wrote is waiting there for young migrants who are being welcomed into the country.
Unaccompanied migrant kids brought from the U.S.-Mexico border to a new shelter (capacity 1,000) in Long Beach, Calif., will be given a copy of her 2019 children’s book, “Superheroes are Everywhere,” in their welcome kits. (New York Post)

Questions yet to be answered:
  1. Are taxpayers paying for the thousands of books contained in backpacks?
  2. Is VP Harris therefore directly profiting from the sale of her books to the federal government?

In 2020, former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was sentenced to three years in federal prison after she pleaded guilty to federal fraud, tax and conspiracy charges over a scheme involving sales of her self-published Healthy Holly children's books.

Spare school children
planned mediocrity

It’s been one short year since parents suddenly found themselves the chief overseers of their children’s education due to the pandemic.

“Short” isn’t the word to describe it, I can almost hear many parents retort, relief in their voices as they realize that soon they will be off the hook, for the responsibility of their child’s education will be back in the hands of the experts at school.

But before you rejoice, let me suggest that things have changed in the past year. No longer are parents clueless about what their children are learning, how they are learning it, or what approaches to learning work best for each child. Parents have seen it all, and therefore have little excuse to go back to the autopilot mode of pre-pandemic days

MIT study presents more
evidence masks are useless

“We argue there really isn’t much of a benefit to the 6-foot rule, especially when people are wearing masks” since everyone in the room is breathing the same air, (Prof. Martin) Bazant said in an interview. “It really has almost no physical basis because the air a person is breathing while wearing a mask tends to rise and comes down elsewhere in the room so you’re more exposed to the average background than you are to a person at a distance.” Read more.

Quotable

"(Joe) Biden was elected on an unearned reputation as a moderate and as a competent man who could calm the chaos of the Trump years. The truth is that Biden's a party man, and his party is decidedly and radically left-wing these days. As for competence, well, let's just say the 78-year-old ... is not really the one running the show. We suspect it's President-in-Waiting Kamala Harris."
Nate Jackson, writing for The Patriot Post (PatriotPost.us), reviewing 100 days of the Biden Regime (April 26, 2021)

"As state legislators, we are adamantly opposed to creating a 'vaccine passport' or any other form of government-required identifications to show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations. These 'vaccine passports' raise serious privacy and legal concerns. North Carolinians should not be required to carry some sort of proof of vaccination to go about their daily lives. We have heard from countless constituents who have contacted us to express their strong opposition and grave concerns regarding the idea of requiring proof of vaccinations."
Rep. Jamie Boles, Rep. Allen McNeill, and 63 other Republican NC House members, denounced vaccine passports in an April 20, 2021 letter to Gov. Roy Cooper (D).

"If (public comments) are what is perceived as being the 'Critical Race Theory', I want you to know I would never support any of them or the CRT. After reviewing all the new Social Study standards, I did not find any of these perceptions included in the new standards and absolutely no mention of the CRT. ... The standards and objectives, approved by the State Board of Education, are not intended to be the curriculum, nor do they indicate the whole of a curriculum which will be written by a local public-school unit. When we are presented with our proposed curriculum, within the next few months, I will certainly be checking to make sure they are not included in our curriculum." 
Moore County Board of Education member Ed Dennison goes on the record in a Facebook post April 22, 2021, pledging that he will not support Critical Race Theory curricula in county schools.

Nanny John Nagy
urges eternal masks

By Dan Kneller

How interesting to read (Pilot editor) John Nagy’s advocacy of continuing to wear a mask after being fully vaccinated.

He labels as “quackery” any dissenting opinion or behavior. Wow, that is the height of arrogance. I did not realize that being an editor of a small newspaper qualified Mr. Nagy as a renowned virologist and public health policy maker.

Yet he is shaming everyone who does not think the same as him.

One of the major questions continues to be, why should someone get the vaccine when there is no reward in achieving immunity from it? What is the end game? When will we be able to ditch the masks and live normally? People cannot live well for long under a constant state of crisis. If everything is a crisis, nothing is a crisis.

Many respected common-sense medical professionals tell us that after two weeks of receiving the final inoculation people should be able to resume normal living. To me normal living means not having to wear a mask.

I have done my part to stop the pandemic. I shut down my normal way of living for a year. I wore a mask, socially distanced and was concerned about those around me. Now I have achieved immunity and I am ready to move forward.

I don’t need a pseudo expert telling me that I must act against the facts.
