Father God, please reveal what is hidden and right what is wrong.

A newly released email indicates Education Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited last September’s letter from the National School Boards Association which compared parents protesting at school board meetings to domestic terrorists.

In an Oct. 6 message to NSBA board member Marnie Maraldo, Secretary-Treasurer Kristi Swett said then-interim CEO Chip Slaven had told his fellow officers “he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cardona.”

The email was obtained through a public records request by the group Parents Defending Education and shared with The Post. It is the first piece of evidence to suggest Cardona’s specific involvement in the NSBA letter.

In the Sept. 29 dispatch to President Biden from Slaven, he suggested that parents who object to mask mandates and the imposition of critical race theory in classrooms are engaging in “a form of domestic terrorism” and asked the administration to “examine appropriate enforceable actions” under a raft of legislation — including the post-9/11 Patriot Act.

That same day, Slaven told his fellow NSBA officers that he had been “in talks over the last several weeks with White House staff” who had “requested additional information on some of the specific threats”.

On Oct. 4, two days before the exchange between Swett and Maraldo, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the FBI would take the lead on probing what he called “a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.”

On Oct. 12, six days after the revelation by Swett, then-NSBA president Viola Garcia detailed in a memo that the organization had been “actively engaged with the White House, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Education, Surgeon General, and other federal agencies on pandemic related issues.”

Two weeks later, Garcia was selected by Cardona for a position on the National Assessment Governing Board, which oversees and examines student performance in a number of subjects and reports on their achievements.

A spokesperson for the Department of Education insisted in a statement that Cardona “did not solicit a letter” from Slaven.

“While the Secretary did not solicit a letter from NSBA, to understand the views and concerns of stakeholders, the Department routinely engages with students, teachers, parents, district leaders and education associations,” the spokesperson said.

This administration needs wisdom and understanding as to what is really happening. God help them to see the truth and what the enemy is really doing behind the scene. Protect and save our children Lord, savoy their freedom and bring an end to this madness.

Get in touch with experts who are God fearing people like Dr. Sheri Tenpenny, Dr. Mikovits, Dr. Malone and thousands of others to prove the masks, shots etc. are a scam! Control, depopulation (that means killing people off) are their goals! Look at The Georgia Guide Stones 10 “goals”. Pure evil. INFORM people to get afree Rumble phone app for honest, uncensored news. My favorite is the Stew Peters Show. They expose all this and also lift high the name if Jesus! Get any sincere Pastor to warn their congregations.
If you think you can reason with people deceived by the evil one, think again. Prayer in Jesus name by the power of the Holy Spirit will give the victory. Lift high the name of Jesus and His blood that ransomed us. God bless you.

We come together forming a blanket of protection around every activist and parent concerned with the ungodly practices in our schools.
Starting today, the LORD has decreed Holiness to begin to appear around the smallest pre schooler through the ranks to our elite eastern colleges. The Lord says, ” Believe.” You have asked, I have heard now see the signs and Wonders following. See the “dirty money” dry up along with Dirty cops, judges, FBI and others who feel secure. I AM GOING TO BLAST THEM OUT OF THEIR DIRTY NEST. AMEN

What they are doing is what Germany did in the 1930’s, which is parents have no rights and the government controls the children. This is anti Christian and anti-American. Gods truth is marching . Choose this day who you Will serve. The march is on. God wins.. Freedom rings.

When we relabel/rename things such as calling parents “terrorists” thereby putting them in the same category as individuals who fly planes full of people into buildings full of people, killing thousands of innocent people, dialogue becomes difficult. Their crime? asking questions/speaking at school board meetings – this used to be called conversation and debate – not assault, not a crime. CRT is called “social and emotional learning” in some schools, perhaps so parents won’t be aware it’s being taught in their children’s schools? but “a rose by any other name”, the content is still the same, teaching we are defined by the color of our skin rather than what Dr. King taught, which is the “content of our character” is what defines us. Government attempting to take parent’s rights away from them is a part of BLM’s stated purpose to “dismantle the western prescribed nuclear family.” But the “west” didn’t invent the family, God invented and ordained it. Marxism however, is an atheistic ideology so this would explain opposing anything created by God. (such as truth and freedom – “you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”) We are calling looting “reparations” and showing ID “suppression”. “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. . . . who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.” (Isaiah 5:20-23);

Our current government is EVIL. There is not other explanation.

I think these school boards and teachers and staff all know that the things they have been teaching the students of today are evil and wrong ideas and they know they will be paying the price and that’s why they are afraid of the parents…because they know the parents have every right to be upset with what they are teaching and weren’t aware of it until covid hit in 2020. If the students are taught the way we were, there would be no reason to fear the parents. The government wants to take control of children in every aspect and not let the parents have a say in anything. This is wrong and they know it and will eventually learn the wrath of the parents. Almighty God and Father, please let this government stop trying to control the lives of our children and act the way a government should in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

The Democrat Communist cancel culture agenda includes destruction of the normal marriage unit, family, parental rights. It is horribly disgusting and a heinous attempt to destroy the all important FAMILY UNIT in our great country.

In any Marxist movement, anywhere in the world & historically, destroying the nuclear family is key. Back in the 1950’s it was feared some day Marxists/Communists would seek the means to have possession of underage children from age 3 or 4 until their teen years. The reason? For the same reason PreK is sought so heavily today, to have more hours of influence over children than their parents. Also having both parents working increases that access. So the introduction of critical race theory and acts such as silencing parents at school board meetings, these are evidence they are implementing the plan today.
