The indispensable weekly newsletter

"The safest road to hell is the gradual one -- the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts." 
-- C.S. Lewis, writing in 1942; his words ring true today amid the Left's tyrannical ambitions

Editor's note: Many Conservatives across our county, state and nation are concerned about the road we are on in 2021. Ultimately, we will choose a path of least resistance, or a path along which enemies within patiently wait to ambush and denounce values we embrace as Americans. Thus, the latter path is the only choice lest we find ourselves on the "gentle slope" described by C.S. Lewis.

This newsletter begins a new chapter today. Its content will remain timely, bold and unapologetic in a quest to shine light on hypocrisy, corruption and deceit. But, henceforth, it will do so independently and without regard for the status quo. Our opponents on the Left claim that searing criticism is threatening and divisive. Again, we must choose. Do we back down to appease? Or do we reveal their underlying motives and self-preservation agendas? Ultimately, this is what they fear.

Moore County Schools
all in on invasive surveys

Posted September 27, 2021 by Moore County Schools:

An online feedback portal on the proposed administration of Social Emotional Learning and Climate/Culture surveys is now available through Friday, October 8.

Links to the survey questions can be found in the online portal form which can be found at www.ncmcs.org under Announcements. To access the Google document, click here.

(Editor's note: Discover the truth about Social Emotional Learning our board would never share with parents or citizens. Click here.)

Moore BOE continues: Hard copies are also available in each school office. Feedback may also be provided to your school principal or the Office for Student Support Services.

If approved by the Board, the Social Emotional Learning survey would be given to students in grades 3 through 12, and the Climate/Culture survey will be given to students in grades 7, 9 and 11. Parents who are uncomfortable with their child taking one or both surveys have the option to "opt-out" their student from taking one or both surveys.

The term "uncomfortable" with surveying is inserted (buried) at the end of the instructions. Do not be uncomfortable. Be defiant. Be proactive. Stop SEL in its tracks.
Surveys are produced by
Zuckerberg backed Panorama

Panorama would enter into a contractual relationship with Moore County Schools if surveying goes forward. Learn more.
Undeterred by public opinion,
board extends mask mandate

Despite mounting evidence that masking children throughout the school day is dangerous, if not abusive, the Moore County Board of Education voted September 22 to require masks for everyone who enters a school building, as well as the BOE central office where the recent meeting was held.

The Board's 4-3 vote continued to magnify a chasm between members who blindly defer to the county health department's quarantine restrictions, and those members who insist parents should be in charge of their children where questions of health are concerned.

At least one member, Ed Dennison, said that keeping children in classrooms far outweighs all other considerations. As it stands, the health department is fine with masked children exposed to the Wuhan virus but would send home for an extended quarantine an unmasked child similarly exposed. This policy does not take into account that children often wear masks improperly and that their masks typically are not sanitary.

Nationally, data related to children continue to indicate a risk of death from the virus as statistically zero. As for illness risk from the virus, even the vaunted Centers for Disease Control (CDC) acknowledges that children with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness compared to children without underlying medical conditions. In other words, nothing new here.
"The masks, whether they work or don't, is not part of my thinking about this," said Dennison (at left, gesturing with the sign of the cross as he confronted pro-freedom citizens) amid board discussion. "I'm thinking about how many kids we can keep in school."

Board chair Libby Carter has expressed her opinion that children are not distracted or bothered by wearing masks for hours.

What remains to be seen is how the narrative that kids must be in school at all costs will carry over into a vaccination mandate debate. It's coming.

Studies debate the necessity of vaccinating children even as the pharmaceutical companies are counting the days until roll outs for ages 5-11.

"No child in America must be vaccinated with these vaccines," said Dr. Paul Alexander, a former Department of Health and Human Services senior adviser in the Trump administration, during a recent live interview on the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton radio program. "And we must consider them already immune and actually vaccinated. Children don’t readily acquire it; don’t readily spread it. They do not get severely ill, readily, and they do not die and that is not me making this up."
Land 'Trust' prevails
in property grab effort

Persistent as locusts, the Southern Pines Land Trust, a non-profit created to acquire property owned by Moore County Schools, finally wore down the Board of Education, which voted 4-3 on September 22 to sell the land well below market value. The Trust will acquire 17 acres for $685,000, the parcel's appraised value. By forgoing it's obligation to seek maximum market value for the land formerly occupied by the Southern Pines Elementary School, the board effectively will leave more than $1 million on the table. Thus, these funds will not be allocated to decaying schools in northern Moore County.

Board member Bob Levy made clear the intent of the Land Trust's plans for the land in west Southern Pines. The trust will erect "a monument to apartheid," said Levy, effectively segregating it from the rest of Moore County.

Countdown begins toward
municipal elections Nov. 2

Yard signs are planted and campaigning strategies are being implemented with elections in 11 Moore County municipalities slated for Nov. 2, 2021.

Early voting is scheduled to run from Oct. 14-30 in the Moore County Agriculture Center in Carthage.

Southern Pines is the lone municipality conducting a primary to reduce its town council slate from five to four. The primary is next week, Oct. 5. Early voting has begun and continues through this Saturday, Oct. 2, in the Board of Elections office lobby in Carthage.

Redrawing of NC districts
is a battle not a process
Per the 2020 U.S. Census, population growth in North Carolina will trigger redistricting statewide and countywide.

The state General Assembly has created a portal to collect public comments. As engaged citizens and Republicans, we must make our voices heard to counter whatever the Democrats will attempt through expected lawsuits aided by media bias.

The NCGOP Legal Team has provided suggested comment language that may be used or added to one's own thoughts on redistricting. Click here to access suggested communication points.

Please submit your thoughts to the General Assembly, while encouraging fellow Republicans to come off of the sidelines. No deadline is given but the process is imminent. Act now. Post a comment to join the public record. We cannot afford to remain silent.

The progressive Left focuses day and night on redistricting because its disciples fully understand that  redistricting impacts the next 10 years across the board (Sources: Moore Republican Women; Tom's News)
Voter registration is
never out of season

Consider these compelling data points provided by the North Carolina Republican Party
  • Registering people to vote is a core component of the North Carolina Republican Party’s mission. 
  • Since November 8th 2016 there have been 1.8 million new voters in North Carolina these new voters make up 25% of the states total electorate
  • Currently there are 2.17 Million Republican Voters in North Carolina, while simultaneously there are 2.42 million Unaffiliated voters. This means over one third of North Carolina’s population is made up of unaffiliated voters. Voter Registration allows us to target those unaffiliated voters!
  • Through Voter Registration we’re growing the Republican Party. 
  • Newly registered voters are more likely to vote AND volunteer for the campaign. 
  • Voter Drives are an excellent way to stay proactive with your local county base!
By the numbers ...

I am desperate for us to find a national leader, of any party, who is less focused on sustaining power through race and sex politics and the bribery of targeted voter groups; someone who has the best long-term interests of the United States first, one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.
