Lynn Chapman – Nevada Families for Freedom, recently returned from DC with Janine Hansen for an Eagle Forum event. They had 15 different speakers, including Tim Ballard, Molly Hemingway, Rosemary Jenks, Gail Roseka (Eagle Forum President in UT).
Metaverse, goes after the kids online, but Gail Roseka’s daughter, is with the FBI and is chasing/finding those who go after the kids online.
Lynn and Janine spent time on the Hill, having contacted both Senators and Amodei’s office. Only Amodei met with them. Nat’l Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) won’t be voted on until Dec. It includes Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and Critical Race Theory (CRT), abortion, gender identity. Amodei is on the correct side of that and he’s against forced masking, lock-downs and vaccine mandates, which all seem to be rearing their ugly head again. He did vote to keep McCarthy.
There is a Kids Online Safety Act, currently in the Senate, not in the House yet. 43 Senate sponsors, provides more online parental control, restricts time spent online and annual reviews. SB1409 is a good bill.
There was a presentation on understanding BRICS, which is an informal coalition between Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, all developing nations. Their hope is to balance Western influence and rely on each other for economic influence in the world.
Kevin Freeman wrote a book called “Pirate Money” about cryptocurrencies. Lynn also heard him speak and was fascinated.
Chloe Cole, a woman transgendered to being a male and now is transitioning out, back to woman. She feels she was pushed by schools and her parents were told she would be taken away from them if they didn’t go along with what their daughter wanted. By the time she was 15, her body was already mutilated. She and some friends (whom she met at a transgender event) figured it out and formed an organization fighting this and their movement has grown and grown. She has spoken out in Congress. Autistic, mentally deficient kids are being targeted.
On the grounds of Mt Vernon is an interactive exhibit that makes you feel like you’re crossing the Delaware.
Mike – Largest single granite monument standing in America is in Plymouth, MA where the Pilgrims settled Plymouth based on Christian philosophy and teachings. Current history being taught in our schools is based on the Jamestown colony, where there was mistreatment of indigenous people and slavery. But all modern history teachings and books want you to know about totally disregards the Plymouth colony.
Janet Butcher – County Commission Update – Commission brought back Public Comment at the beginning of the meeting. Two items were tabled: 1) $10M to the tuberculosis clinic (with only 4 patients last year), which was tabled. 2) Another issue about the Sheriff’s Dept forensic lab. No one from the Sheriff’s office came to explain or speak on it, so they tabled it. They were appointing someone to the Audit Committee: Kevin Stroupe, John Briscoe, Matthew Buehler, Nicholas St Jon and others all put their names in. Kevin Stroupe was chosen, whom none of us know nor do we have a clue as to how he’ll do. Sample ballot printing went to a LV printing co. Reno printing company wanted to participate, but couldn’t handle the volume necessary. Master Plan amendment passed 3-2, with all the Dems (in the pocket of developers) voting for it.
School Superintendent Susan Enfield made a presentation about partnering with the parents (but only the parents who agree with them).
No lectures from Commissioner Garcia, but she is very supportive of the Superintendent.
Roger Edwards – School Board Update – Superintendent Enfield blew rainbows and flowers at the County Commission about how good the WCSD is doing, but nothing about being 50th out of 50 districts in the US. The same day of her speaking at the Commission, the State Board of Education put out a report about how poorly WCSD is doing.
According to Superintendent Enfield, WCSD is all excited and raving about new program, integrating with parents and a policy to improve the quality of education. As long as there is a policy is in place, that is usually as far as it goes and it doesn’t mean anything. The bright spot in the School Board meeting was Trustee Jeff Church who basically said “we are 50th out of 50, so no new programs. Let’s do what we did decades ago.” 40% of the enrollment is non-whites. There is no immersion program, but segregation based on age and ethnicity. There is no discipline whatsoever. A kid can set the school on fire and they’ll slap him on the wrist and take away the matches. 60% chronic absenteeism in the upper grades.
John Eppolito – Consent agenda included lots of spending for another coordinator (not a teacher) @ $163K/yr and another computer program or software. One of the software they purchased had 1.6 or 2.3 stars out of 5. Does anyone look at this or just spend $$?
John went to Douglas County School Board meeting last night. It was somewhat of a circus. Board Attorney is Joey Gilbert. They are trying to get rid of the Superintendent, but didn’t have the votes, so Superintendent stays. The majority of attendees were School Board employees, with only a handful of clear thinking individuals like John.
Margaret – Margaret urges us to contact the School Board and urge them to bring back Public Comments at the beginning. Alexis Hill brought back it back to the County Commission and the School Board should follow suit.
School Bd Trustee Diane Nicolette is up for reelection and it may be a good time to ask them to put beginning Public Comments on the agenda.
Donald Fossum – on behalf of Stephanie Phillips. Events, appearances are as follows:
Mon, Oct 16, 10:30am, Eat ‘n Greet – no host breakfast/lunch @ Gold Dust West private room, but 2 people will be hosted.
