Koos: Mr. Nord you are out of order

By: Diane Benjamin One more story from last Monday’s Normal Town Council meeting: If you missed the video of Chemberly Cummings’ stating Chris Koos can’t be questioned over appointments, watch it now: https://blnnews.com/2021/10/19/quick-hits-from-normal-last-night/ Cummings claims to have 8 Unit 5 students signed up for her “local government” class. The taxpayers of Normal are funding her […]

ISU needs to watch this father:

By: Diane Benjamin I guarantee you will be cheering too (unless you are woke). The School Board voted to ban CRT after he spoke. Wednesday night the ISU Academic Senate will likely pass by a LARGE majority a graduation requirement to create “woke” students. They call it IDEAS – Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access in […]

ISU: Teaching Tribalism

BHS get National Publicity!

By: Diane Benjamin BHS is now nationally famous for firing a conservative teacher AND handing out gun propaganda to students!  It was by accident I found  the document, what else is going on we don’t know about?  Anybody think indoctrination was a one time event?  Have the students ever heard the story behind the 2nd […]

Got kids in public school?

I friend sent this link to me. I’ve watched the movie. The public school system does not want you to see this movie. You probably have a long weekend, so take the time to watch. Very powerful film that you can watch for free until the end of the year! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! […]

Democrats TELL the uniformed what to think

Check out the site.  The DNC has pre-made answers and supporting links.  The Democrats evidently believe citizens have no ability to think for themselves, understand economics, or do their own research.  I personally don’t like Rush Limbaugh, but Rush definitely bothers them.  They must think all conservatives live and die by what Rush says. If […]

It’s a lot easier to pull the plug on Granny if . . .

Is this a Preschool or a Prison? We Can’t Really Tell the Difference

By Melissa Melton of Truthstream Media.com via LewRockwell.com The public primary school for pre-kindergarteners featured in the video below gave me chills. The brightly colored buildings belied […]

America’s kids, as well as their parents, will also be monitored and tracked in […]

Still have your kids in public school?

Are you at least demanding to see what they are learning? DAD FURIOUS AFTER FINDING THIS CRAYON-WRITTEN PAPER IN FLORIDA 4TH-GRADER’S BACKPACK: ‘I AM WILLING TO GIVE UP SOME OF MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS…TO BE SAFER’ The words are written in crayon, in the haphazard bumpiness of a child’s scrawl. “I am willing to give up […]
