    The nation's two biggest teachers unions say they would consider strikes or major protests if schools reopen without the proper safety measures in place or against the advice of medical experts — raising the possibility of yet more school disruptions. American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, previewing a reopening plan first with POLITICO, said funding is needed for a host of public health measures for schools, including personal protective equipment. Collective bargaining, strong enforcement of safety standards and protections from retaliation will be important for teachers and staff so they feel safe to speak up as schools try new...

    Switzerland removed restrictions for grandparents this week in hugging their young grandchildren after studies found that young grandchildren do not transmit the disease and are at less risk for serious health issues due to the coronavirus.

  • We Are Making American Kids Pay For Coronavirus Shutdowns, And That’s Unfair

    Our nation's leaders are demanding that American children pay for this crisis through debt-financed spending, while depriving them of the education they need to make that even remotely possible. One of the many significant but underappreciated effects of U.S. politicians’ response to coronavirus is their pre-emptive mass school shutdowns. It is likely these shutdowns will harm the next generation far beyond the trillions in government spending these children will someday be forced to pay off for previous generations.For one thing, the school shutdowns will cripple children’s economic future by depriving them of up to an entire year of learning. That’s...

    Multiple mothers have had their children taken away from them as a direct result of working in the medical profession during the Coronavirus outbreak. Will these disturbing cases register with our political leaders, who are voicing public calls to stand with our medical workers during the pandemic? Additionally, NATIONAL FILE caught a Child Protective Services worker attempting to use the Coronavirus outbreak to suspend all visits for parents of a child in the government system, citing a statewide policy that the state government says does not exist. What is going on? The Washington Examiner reports: “A divorced emergency room physician...

  • Homeschooling during the coronavirus will set back a generation of children (fake news)

    As the coronavirus pandemic closes schools, in some cases until September, American children this month met their new English, math, science and homeroom teachers: their iPads and their parents. Classes are going online, if they exist at all. The United States is embarking on a massive, months-long virtual-pedagogy experiment, and it is not likely to end well. Years of research shows that online schooling is ineffective — and that students suffer significant learning losses when they have a long break from school. Now they’re getting both, in a hastily arranged mess. And the kids who suffer most from the “summer...
  • Honor Your Father and Mother...ten commandments pt 7

    Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. ( Exodus 20:12)God says that we are to Honor our Father and Mother. The commandment is not that we should agree with them, love or even like them, but that we should give our parents Honor. It will be pointed out in the New Testament, that this is the first commandment with a promise. The idea is that God himself has placed placed us in our particular families, and given us the parents (and children) that we have....

    The state of New York is now permitting minors who self-identify as something other than their biological sex to alter their birth certificates. Officials in the Empire state announced this week that young people ages 16 and under who assert that they are transgender or nonbinary will be able to alter their sex marker on their birth certificate to reflect their "gender identity." Medical affidavits are not required to make the change. Proponents of the new policy hailed the move. “The actions announced today rid the state of a discriminatory and outdated policy and keeps New York rightly among the...

    Maybe many folks aren’t so into this drag queen and kids phenomenon after all. Netflix just announced that it’s new-ish drag queen-centered show starring RuPaul and his enthusiastic 10 year-old sidekick has been cancelled after just one season. Good. There’s proof that there is some sanity in the world. The legendary drag icon and founder of RuPaul’s Drag Race -- which is set to air its twelfth season on VH1 -- had starred in the first season of the Netflix original series, “AJ and The Queen,” which centered on the story of a “down-on-her-luck” drag queen named Ruby who discovers...

  • California To Remove Homosexual Child Rapists From The Sex Offender Registry If They Are Not More Than 10 Years Older Than Their Victim

    When we talk about any Sanctuary state we can’t be surprised by the news. But when we talk about California they lead the pack. Hollywood, drugs, illegals, feces on the streets, and sexual predators. These are some of the things we have in California but it seems they don’t intend to change. A bill called the “LGBTQ Young People Nondiscrimination in the Sex Offender Registry Act” literally deletes the most vulnerable population — children, from the list of potential victims of homosexual sex offenders. “Under the legislation, a 24-year-old grown man would be able to sodomize a 14-year-old boy and...

    The Parental Oversight of Public Libraries Act, sponsored by state Sen. Paul Bailey and state Rep. Andy Holt, would establish a five-member review board for each public library to determine “whether any sexual material provided to the public by the public library is age-inappropriate sexual material.” Voters would elect the members. The board would hold public hearings, during which time “members of the community may present concerns to the board,” according to the bill’s text. The bill is HB 2721 in the House and SB2896 in the Senate. Holt said it would provide local control on controversial issues. “There haven’t...

    Corey Feldman wants the world to know: Pedophilia is “Hollywood’s biggest problem.” In an interview with the Guardian, the ’80s icon claims his long-awaited documentary will expose a child sex ring in which he and late actor Corey Haim were victims. Feldman, 48, who has teased potentially incriminating information for decades, says he plans to finally name the abusers of his “Lost Boys” co-star in the doc, tentatively titled “Truth: The Rape of the Two Coreys.” Corey Feldman says he is living in fear and has hired 24-hour protection ahead of the release of his new documentary that he says...

    As the novel coronavirus spreads around the globe, sickening more than 90,000 people and killing about 3,000, doctors have noticed something curious: Very few children have been diagnosed with it. And of those who have, most have had mild cases. In China, where the outbreak started, children comprise just 2.4 percent of all reported cases of COVID-19, the illness caused by the new coronavirus, a World Health Organization-China Joint Mission report from last month found. Of those, only a sliver — 2.5 percent — experienced severe symptoms, and an even tinier proportion — 0.2 percent — became critically ill. Worldwide,...
