For a liberal publication that is constantly lecturing about diversity in the workplace, the Huffington Post is certainly not practicing what it preaches. [Read more…]

This NFL player took away his daughter’s participation ribbon, then THIS happened

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 10.02.55 AM

I love what NFL Pro-Bowler DeAngelo Williams did a couple weeks ago.

Independent Journal has more:

Along with a picture of his young daughter, Rhiya, smiling with several ribbons pinned to her shirt, Williams wrote:

“I took her Field Day participation ribbon & gave it back to her teacher…then in the next event she got 1st place…”

As the NFL player explained, Rhiya took part in four separate events for her school’s Field Day. But she “slowed up” during the first one and wound up taking 5th or 6th place, for which she still earned a participation ribbon.

He went on to explain that — though she was upset at first that he took her ribbon away and returned it to the teacher — he told his daughter, “If you want a ribbon, you come 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.”

Rhiya went on to win 1st place in her next event, followed by 3rd in the last two.

The following day, Williams posted a video titled “Failing Leads to Succeeding,” where he explained exactly why he did what he did. You have to watch it:

This is amazing. DeAngelo didn’t overcome adversity and injuries by being patted on the head. He worked hard, failed, got back up, and then was victorious.

Why President Obama’s Transgender Proclamation Is Far Broader and More Dangerous than You Think

The Department of Justice announced a radical new policy regarding transgendered students access to the bathroom of their choice in public schools.  The gist?  Bow down to the Obama Administration’s radical views on transgendered children and allow them access to whatever bathroom they want, or loose all of your federal funding.

And while this is shocking and outrageous, the implications of the DOJ policy are more far-reaching and dangerous than we could have ever imagined.

My husband, David French, explains:

First, the very act of teaching biology and human physiology will be hate speech unless it’s modified to conform to the new transgender “facts.” Teachers will have to take great pains to note that chromosomes, reproductive organs, hormonal systems, and any other physical marker of sex is irrelevant to this thing called “gender,” which, “factually,” is a mere state of mind.

Second, any statements of dissent — from teachers or students — will be treated as both “anti-science” and “discriminatory,” contributing to a “hostile environment” that schools are legally bound to prohibit. This prohibition will go well beyond the use of pronouns and into discussions of what it means to be male and female. The argument that a “girl” with a penis remains a boy will be treated exactly the same as an argument that blacks are inferior to whites or Arabs inferior to Jews.

Third, public schools will now be even further opposed, doctrinally and legally, to orthodox Christianity. Christian parents who send their children to public schools need to be aware of the new “facts.” They will be taught not only that their churches are factually wrong in their assessments of sex and gender but that they are actually bigoted and hateful — comparable to white supremacists.

Fourth, the administration’s actions set a key political precedent. Federal funding — long seen as a boon to local schools — is now clearly and unmistakably an instrument of national control. The federal education bureaucracy is stocked with energetic and creative progressives, and last week’s letter represents just one more step in an ongoing effort to turn money into mandates.

Finally, because the administration’s edict is tied to funding, not even civil disobedience can block its enforcement. In other words, state officials can “defy” the edict all they want, but unless a court rules in their favor, the administration need merely stop a bank transfer to enforce its “guidance.” This would place citizens of dissenting states in the unenviable position of either complying — and sacrificing their kids’ liberty and safety — or defying and seeing cash-strapped schools lose millions of dollars in public support, all while they continue to pay taxes to fund progressive jurisdictions.

To read the rest of David’s article, visit his column at National Review.

As concerned parents and citizens it is imperative that we understand the full weight of the DOJ’s mandate and what it means for our children and the future of education in our country.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.  We will be made to care.

See what’s happened to Target’s stock since the bathroom boycott

Target is learning the hard way that if you alienate a majority of your customers, they’ll find somewhere else to shop. It’s quite possible that Walmart is their new target. [Read more…]
