Pastor Ernie Sanders

Revealed J memo by treating parents like tears talk about that today on site keeping you informed and now this is remotely female. What you see is that they are drawing up a list of crimes are saying is there any crime.

We can go after these parents for their anything that we can prosecute them for federal crimes were talking about their definitely try to target parents. It does contradict Darla's sworn testimony and now you can have the answer as to what the differences want to hear from you Sharon, McCall, 1-800-684-3110 chairman.

Never yesterday, when will you bring back the Atty. Gen. to answer questions. After all, it sure looks like he misled the American people when he gave the answer that he did and now your secular to secure we are taking 100-6831 two so as you remember there's a concert memo put out by the Atty. Gen. October 4, 2021 about the partnership between the FBI and local law enforcement dropped her parents because of school board meetings of the Atty. Gen. held that in my head right now.

The Atty. Gen. was the question by the committee on the Judiciary. On October 21.

Ed testified that that they were not using counterterrorism statutes and resources to target considered parrots.

He said he could not imagine any circumstance which the Patriot Act would be used in certain states of parrots complaining about their children nor circumstantially be labeled as domestic terrorist. Well, a whistleblowers come out with a memo that was sent around the FBI, which the DOJ borrowed overseas. The day before. He testified the day before. He testified he could imagine parrots to be treated this way.

Well, here's what it says to do as a result of of the what's been happening the school board's the counterterrorism and criminal divisions of the FBI have created a threat tag Ed Jew officials education officials to track instances of related threat. Here is what they are looking for is there federal nexus to the action so could they could they invoke, they get involved as the FBI or potential federal violations that they can investigate and charge what's the motivation. Let me tell you before you buy that this is identify the assistant director of counterterrorist rate threat counterterror at the FBI and assistant director of criminal activity at the FBI so these are top officials exactly opposed to what Darla's testified he could never imagine that will because a couple things we have seen this scenario before and the specifics of seeing the scenario before.

Is there a federal nexus are the potential federal violations. I can be investigated and charged. What is the motivation behind the criminal activity. Let me tell you what that all means, that is the same thing that the FBI Department of Justice at Fort Department of the Treasury and and the FPC when Lois Lerner set out that email St. Jude we can in up we can find one thing to charge here.

We could really do something we find one charge against one of these groups that will set him down and that's exactly what the FBI was doing here partly justice except his parents at a school board meeting. There was harassment and problems of the school board meeting.

You know what you can do you can call the local police but to turn it into the counter terrorism unit of the Federal Bureau of investigation to handle local parents at a local school board meeting is not only ridiculous. I think it's illegal I don't think they have any federal nexus up. They want to answer that question and I think frankly deporting parents in jeopardy and make when they start getting warrants subpoenas local police were able to handle any of the emotions were running high during the covert situation you turn into a federal counterterrorism investigation get the bad guys there equating parents who care about their kids, and extra shop school board meetings to that well hey if that put out wheat we do these kind of tags like for drug traffickers and human traffickers and federal criminals as those of federal crimes clear federal project comparing his parents to drug traffickers and sympathetic parent makes a physical threat of violence.

Local law enforcement should handle it easily.

It should be in trouble if they carried out in the act consequences should be in trouble but they should be able to to have meaning behind their words, if they get a little heated. That's okay so we have public in support our work in ACLJ.org share this broadcast with your friends and family. The American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the street and what Obama care means to the many ways your membership is powering the right question for copy mission life today online/to play this. This is Atty. Gen. garlic. He is testified this is our 21 October before the house I Judiciary committee take a listen.

The Justice Department supports and defends the First Amendment right of parents to complain as vociferously as they wish about the education of their children about the curriculum taught in the schools. That is not what the memorandum is about at all. I can't imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism is really what you're saying and we got a memo joint message from the criminal investigation division division so 20th, the day before you testified now here's the problem. If this was Bill Barton who made that misstatement. Could you imagine with me calling for such a hearing you talk about a double standard here. This is beyond, I think it is I think essentially what we are witnessing is a form of collusion base or conspiracy. So we have the counterterrorism and criminal division basically asserting along with national school Board Association's and some local school boards that parents are effectively domestic terrorism. Terrorists sorry so the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the school boards have essentially entered into a collusive agreement to target parents.

It all started with a letter sent by the National school boards Association in late September, then the Justice Department sprung into action around October 4. Then Atty. Gen. Garland testified before Congress on October 21 and now whistleblower has essentially revealed the scope of this attempt to target and intimidate parents to the extent that parents oppose school mass to the extent that they oppose sexual assault in restrooms to the extent that they oppose critical race theory that is a local as opposed to federal matter. So then I want to go to you on this because I want to see get a sense of what actually happened. But having said that, what can I say this to play Sen. Lindsey Graham's been as broadcast many many times. Listen what he said if you go to school board and get on really got local law enforcement to deal with it. So here's what bothers me.

What jurisdiction does the FBI claim to start following school board meetings. I can't think of a federal jurisdictional issue here.

So this is scary. If the FBI can just reach out and start tracking parents and school boards than their overstepping their boundaries. They are limited in terms of their charter right here that when I hear Sigurd Graham say was this is this is not the job.

This targeting is known there limited the jurisdiction their charter and this is where the jurisdictional limits is a federal conspiracy here across state lines which would require soldiers to the things that they related to our human trafficking which means you're taking people and taking them across state lines that triggers federal investigation private relations and for child and drug traffic) that is, of all things to parents engage in civil disobedience is not really even hear the time that either you, you've made a violent predicate someone or you're raising your voice too much at the meeting okay.

The idea here is that with the FBI representative democracy penumbral the right tool to go after that kindness, even if it was civil disobedience.

The states and localities. I would need to make sure that they can keep a well-run school board meeting. Look, I did this. You remember the young when the federal government try to regulate abortion protest. My argument was, wait a minute. If there's a violation of the state trespass laws here).

If you bring in local law enforcement and charge people with trespass you don't charge them with violations of the federal Ku Klux Klan act of 1871.

But why the way, six justices of the Supreme Court agreed with me, but I want to go to fan because Lindsay's not speaking out.

I know that Jim Jordan speaking out, Mayor Gartland made a total misstatement here and that is in the matter right now absolutely jamming. I think there's a substance point that's on the center grantmaking and there's a process point at the one the Congressman Jim Jordan is making him on the substance of the conversation that you just had with Jordan like the FBI wants to say that these are just like the tags we use for drug trafficking and human trafficking. Yet those are federal crimes. This is not a federal crime. They need to stay focused on their jurisdiction. Any to let local law enforcement handed but on process J we played a clip during the break from Congressman Jim Jordan and he said look, the Atty. Gen. is before us the day after this memo was issued and he said I can't imagine that this is taking place will here's the problem with that it was taking place on the day he made that statement. So the point that Congressman Jordan is making is the Atty. Gen. J absolutely has to come back in front of Congress and clarify that record in the absence of that J this is an incorrect statement to Congress.

That's a very serious problem if he says he could imagine it that they be treated like that counterterrorism to use the patriot act within the memo of his own department the day before said it was written by the counterterrorism director is a former counterterrorism director Strauch take a listen to him tried to defend this on MSNBC bite 60 about stories about Russia are outlined in our international terror threats is bizarre to have Eric asking about the FBI having to protect school boards in America. This landing site. I think Nicole, the first thing is to step back and say in their right mind would oppose law enforcement looking into threats of violence against teachers. The problem right now. I know the right mind opposes local and state law enforcement officials looking into violence against local school teachers who work for cities and municipalities right are not were talking about here. The school boards they are is extremely localized part of representative government. America and they are the furthest away from the federal government by the way, that's Peter Strauch and I know the colossi so I was so tight about errata Russia focused on that initial job always at the FBI was going after Americans but he couldn't equally talk about Iran and Russia because it was part of the whole Russian nonsense to begin with the propagator of what we now know was a total fraud.

The American people know what everybody knows at the Newton. The media covered it for 28 seconds was pilot for three years we litigated with Bob Muller to sort the main sources been indicted. Subpoena appears rock-bottom, and I'm sure he was promoting the idea of you know, continued counterterrorism crossfire hurricane in the network ad buys work but put all this together and say why would you take federal resources Harry to do this well, I think, for political reasons and I think the Biden administration is not shy about using the weight of the federal government to target its political appointment up opponents and so I think at the end of the day. There's a fundamental mistake that the Justice Department that the Biden administration has made and that is to deploy its resources to go after political opponents in a representative or democracy or Republic and so if you look though at the individuals who are targeted. These are individuals who oppose the progressive playbook. These are individuals who oppose. For instance, critical race theory and the Biden administration Department of education. For instance, supports critical race theory. If you look at critical race theory even more closely what we find, we find that Atty. Gen. Garland's son-in-law runs a firm that profits from critical race theory.

So at the end of the day the Biden administration is quite willing to put its interest ahead of the interest of the American people.

This to me at the edge as quickly as either we heard a lot of outrage on the hill but now that we have all this information.

Is there any way Garland doesn't have to return it answer these questions. I mean, he clearly was not at best. He didn't know what his own department was doing. He wasn't forthcoming Jordan. He certainly did not tell the entire truth in my view, there's no way he can't come back and not assigned and is quickly drawing. I just can't help myself, Peter Strauch and MSNBC immune. Imagine this conversation behind the scenes who can we find to ask about the proper role of love, federal law enforcement. All I know.

Let's ask the guy who got caught abusing his powers a federal law-enforcement. Let's have him come on and answer that question just unbelievable Jordan.

You know what it's it's towards what you said earlier, Mayor currently gets up there makes a totally incorrect statement totally incorrect.

Simply fostering because the day before his own Department of Justice had a memo counterterrorism unit on what is accountability what they were. We already have a team of lawyers at the ACLJ working on this because you know there are memos behind these memos.

This final memo did not come out of thin air. They didn't just come up with this there to be a memo and there's in the memo that led to these memos we can find out what was going on is more for the DOJ Inspector General we get back with the overall take with him is maybe that be the most trusted agency that it out almost the most distrusted to be a little bit less seriously about your only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the ministry. What Obama care means to the many ways your membership is powering the right question mission life today online/the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ.

The work we simply would not occur without your generous matching challenge make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay you to rub what would you share with your friends and family. Now they all have a way to share the video with the people that are your friends on these various social media outlets because it would make sure this information is getting out to people because there's more Department of Justice. We just got X excerpt from the Inspector General's report" Department of Justice, top management and performance challenges in 2021. You know what it is maintaining independence from political influence by adhering to its strafing policies designed to ensure objectivity and impartiality goes on to say what important strategies to build trust in the Department of Justice is to ensure adherence to policies. Given that includes the FBI and procedures designed to protect you DOJ from accusations of political influence or partial application of the law, as we found it a prior report examines various actions taken very the election decision to deviate from the FBI. The DOJ's established procedures and norms negatively impact the perception of the department. Check this without in March 2020 pew survey that thousand adults and asked him their overall opinion of 10 federal agencies how favorable it was. Of the 10 agencies, including the survey DOJ rate night only worse. US immigration because we know why that is. There's a crisis on our border. That is a big address. This is how bad we that this is the real issue here. The American people. We been fighting this fight the IRS. The IRS was setting people up.

The exact same way we try to federal taxes get a federal investigation got these tea party groups. I like to get the motivation behind her like he is involved right DOJ about just file one group one case we could stop this.

The entire country rakes them as died out of 10 of the worst government agencies that that says a lot for our nation's top law enforcement officials. It's terrible to bear Garland to the Biden administration to the FBI, Christopher Ray, you would take it an organization which I think most people thought was without political is about human trafficking crimes and drug trafficking and counterterrorism.

Instead of targeting American citizens for free-speech target and in this to be is the reason why this bureaucracy. We have to watch so carefully. The spending bills than because they just popped body back into these agencies who are being told by the Inspector General. Your partisan your out-of-control. It's why the American people don't have faith in the will. Those bills doubled in size of the IRS. They also send money to the Department of Justice to prosecute those that the IRS turns up, look there will be prosecution money and this is well in Jordan you're going through that again. You talk about how they're saying it negatively impacts the American people's perception of the agency. Absolutely true. But Jordan also negatively impacts the reality of their effectiveness. I mean, in order to have the resources to allocate in this direction.

You have to take them away from the very things that the FBI statement itself said that they're supposed to be doing drug trafficking and human trafficking. Jordan we find these agencies so that they can prosecute the crimes that fall in their jurisdiction, and if they're getting outside of their lane and try to do something that someone else is already responsible for it.

By definition means that the dollars, the American people send that agency to prosecute drug trafficking and human trafficking. Jordan is not been used for that purpose of there's more lanes for those criminals to run in our annual drug overdose deaths its hit record levels we topped 100,000 for the first time it in a guess the fiscal year.

The reporting of or 12 of. Most of those are a lot of those related to fit all. You know that's come from overseas your that I get jurisdiction will be because their traffic across state lines DOJ focus how to keep that out of the Americans had so that people are not dying in record numbers but no, there focus is all politics with traditional settings, stay out of politics, especially local politics at the school board is that it is about local decisions elect local elected officials state official date course the most locality to get County municipalities townships villages that were talking about. It's interesting that in the gym door and said is it calls into question the accuracy and completeness of America sworn specimen which we know what that that's being nice for saying untruths were were were testified to.

Now we may not of been aware of it. I'm not accusing him of of of that he may not of been aware of his own department, but that's not the record needs to be corrected, but it's so interesting to me when we talk about this tag tag is merely a statistical tool be said of the word track information for review and reporting at the FBI's use tags to track as you said drug trafficking and human trafficking and local school boards. That's where none of this makes sense. Let's grab a phone call here yeah let's go to billet while they highlight what hey Bill, welcome to secular you're on the air they really that the ability it is not worrying about basin security that the going at their parents instead of taking care of the real criminal letter letter note rent below here right there. I think we both taught criminal law over the years the elements of the federal crime where the element of the federal crime unruly score. Many or even something threatening. Generally, those kind of issues I'm not saying anybody should rightly think that's wrong but it's handled by local law enforcement. This is where the federal government right now does not understand her jurisdictional limitations on anything across-the-board. This seems to be the trend. More about that next week, a minute, this is kind of the view that you know where the federal government. We get to do everything. There are things the states can do. But the federal government cannot do. I think that's precisely correct. What we have been Washington is basically a globalist move to concentrate power in Washington and basically all every other American is now a subject rather than a citizen of these bureaucrats and so while as Jordan correctly points out over 100,000 people have died from drug overdoses over the last year and 1/2 or so the question becomes how many school board members have died because of the activities of unruly parents. That's number one. Number two, and how many of these parents are moving back and forth across interstate lines in order to attack school board members, I think, again, the answer to that is zero. Nonetheless, we have an attorney general after initiating the targeting of parents pursuant to the national school Board Association letter saying I can't imagine that the FBI would target parent.

Why isn't the FBI.

For instance, targeting drug trafficking. Why isn't the FBI drug targeting human trafficking. But there's a problem in most brothers appropriate executive producer. What tags in the IRS is that I remember the taxi was tea party. It was patriot. It was liberty. It was 911 and there was a whole series of them so you note here, I guess attack his parents unruly school board meeting by question going up. That was this affects everybody in the country will hear your comments on this 1-800-684-3110 second half hour.

This broadcast 800-6843 1100 we want to hear from you and hundred 6430 when they really quickly here is visiting the congressional action here horses because the way Congress is set up right now. This can be passed.

Well I hope there will be the were not in and give them the benefit of the doubt they were reviewing options right now to find these answers for ourselves. I think it needs to be dual tractor look at Congress is and do the job.

We will type the ACLJ we are matching challenge this month of November. Double the impact of your donation today. Let me explain again, you may be new that what that means we have a group of donors rate to match all the all the donations the in the month of November. Are you that it is good ACLJ.Cody today got a $25 that's effectively $50. The ACLJ we appreciate its supporters and ACLJ dental the American Center for Law and just as were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ keeping you informed and now Jordan secular reset this event for you to remember we had. Your girl what he testified on October 21 about this. This is a memo put out by him on October 4 and it is about engaging the FBI and US attorneys to look at what was going on in the school boards so specifically looking at the parents and their response the school board. I would say this right off the bat if you if a parent should have the school board meeting or the local individual waited their turn to talk and made violent threats or if they did that some other manner. They should be those threats should be or if they took any action.

They should be had by local law enforcement. This local school board. Is that a federal issue would set federalized but you see that if they can federalize this you federalized another power. It's another power grab department this week by the Biden administration if they can tell you to do the work to be the ones handling this well. Mayor Carla Goodwin testified before Congress on October 21 that he just couldn't imagine that things like that that patriot act of counterterrorist tout counterterror division at the FBI would be utilized to go after parents even angry was at school boards well. A whistleblower has put out a memo this is from the criminal investigative division and counterterrorist vision of the FBI the day before this memo was out the day before garlands testify before the House judiciary committee in it.

They create the tag to Buffalo Tech it's edge you officials education officials. The purpose of the threat tag is to help the scope of this threat on a national level provide opportunity for comprehensive analysis of the threat picture you want to see any way for the federal government to get involved asses their federal taxes, other federal crimes being committed to actually investigate those in charge them. What's the motivation is there conspiracy. That's what they were looking for their no evidence of any of these one pagers I would've done this is signed by the head of the counterterrorism division, the head of the FBI's criminal division and it doesn't just state violence and threats of violence also uses words that sound bad but a very general intimidation and harassment that there may be some of the school board who doesn't like me because I shoved every meeting and I get a little upset about my kids committed a crime to threaten their their livelihood or threatened any physical action that I could be angry. You can get your school board and be angry. I don't always suggest that the best or to take.

We certainly can be and to get his leisure following the rules. So what is the they start creating these new terms.

The don't have a lot of legal in this section harassing speech to a public official and open school board meeting. They are elected and they should because they're related and compensated for their for their job. They have to hear from people in the upset of course the words here that the about to meet Harry or just a disturbing spike in harassment and intimidation by weight, both of which are not federal crimes. Neither which are I think that's precisely correct. So essentially the FBI is asking this question. How dare parents have an opinion exactly and particularly how dare they have an opinion which differs from the opinion of experts and so essentially what the FBI is now doing it is attempting to criminalize an opinion that arguably violates the First Amendment of the Constitution, we are entitled to have differing opinions but that is not the prevailing view in Washington that is the prevailing view of the Biden administration your folks, we come back.

Take for your phone calls you want to hear from you Julie first, 1-800-684-3110 to have your voice heard is a place we can have your voice heard.

1-800-684-3110 anything that the FBI using its counterterrorism division tried scare you away. That's ultimately scare you away from actually getting sickly with the government should be encouraged at the federal and local level. That is what they're trying to do the right back and stick your calls 164, 31 to effect this will have kids and grandkids education.

If you don't speak Scared the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift comes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you beautiful gift today online ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn. It's called mission will show you how you are personally and publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists nations 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to question your free copy of mission life today online ACL data/this is the chilling effect on parents engagement in their kids education. I want to hear from you because maybe you're someone who owed over this.

Overall this pandemic and CRT.

It always different issues and you try to just figure out where Mike is being thought you might get a preview of it been freaked out when you saw the virtual learning member try to ban you from watching said parents please leave the room while virtually teach because they do what you know what they were teaching they woke JM uncomfortably.

Abby, I think the weight of ideas a little kid used to go to school or be Zarqawi to tell people this is where the problems start a lick.

I was not at school board meetings okay I'll tell you school but I did intimidate the school board in Metropolis Illinois which we had that on video they arrested, arrested Misty Newberry in 1992, four, participating at sea with the pole put her in a police car, took her to the jail. I went to the school board meeting. It was very aggressive. I was not thinking that the app not with within my constitutional rights. I was representing Paris, I was an aggressive advocate. I did not think for a moment that this was the raise level to the FBI where they would say this lawyer is intimidating us wasn't threatened not running with a lawsuit that threatening. That's a question inherently is a definite threatening legalizes likely held the I would imagine that is the new standard BLB that someone feels intimidated. Therefore, it's a crime, but I need this. This remote there a lot of times parents go to school board meetings and the really upset so they're going to be no maybe aggressive make that happen. If you hold school for me and it could be over tax assessments or closing orders. Whatever it might be this idea that were to federalize this is exactly what they try to do the pro-life movement. They tagged the pro-life movement, like the now trying to tag parents at school board meetings and then the head of the Department of Justice, the Atty. Gen. United States goes to confront Congress and said that we would never do that is our department has a memo saying it would do it right now actually the day before he testified something of the phones Julie in California online to if you were to talk to us at 1-800-684-3110 is all about people you understand this is all about.

They want to go back to status quo of most people not showing up yet. Most parents not caring to spend the time to go to school board meetings, which are long way to turn the tattoo to speak, but the I think that again the Dragon was on was was woken with all of the school board are making all these file decisions during the pandemic and it was more interested also in the curriculum as well. Hey Julie, welcome to secular you're on the right team, and will question my comment.

Thank God for the ACL taken on a lot of things you guys are constitutional lawyers and you will know what could be done to stop this, constitutional level, so definitely elegant during your matching challenge. My question is what exact powers conceal the I have one and want to take a person for say we need to look at the person does not give them the ability to get their phone records they could think yourself Julie think they could seek warrants they could seek subpoenas to go into your house and they have problems because whenever they and they now define it surveillance today… I begin to surveillance without you even knowing it.

This is where I wonder where I know that the God silenced the fan with the situation in Congress. Right now the question is working to take our action because you can't rely on Congress your vision of the boats I lets be honest that America may come back and correct this record he might might have to well he should. J. And like you can have to come back in front of Congress at some point I don't know if the Democrats will call them back urgently on this matter, but the next time he's up even if it's several months down the road. This should be brought up were knocking away on that day when I can take benefit of the doubt on his word working to demand we want to know who was involved, not just the Atty. Gen. who else was involved in why they decided to do this in J. The other thing I would just say I mean on this breathtaking power grab. Remember, even if even if the FBI doesn't use all of the tools that you just mentioned. The whole point of the IRS targeting the be on the lookout list was to chill the speech of those tea party groups.

I really think the whole point of this J is to chill parental speech. And if that means that school boards are less accountable to parental scrutiny. I think their mission will have been an been accomplished and that would be a horrific think the chilling of the parental speech is something we gotta stop as well.

I would get a can to take your phone calls, one 800 684 30 1/10 and every call that 2000 684-3110 Heather Scully from New Mexico online. One hey Heather, welcome to secular you're on the morning my call it right from what you're asked that that you're going get more information that home school. The like, say, why are you worried about, well, I would be one of the parent target. If Mike were in school and find very passionate about it all night just finding out who or what you now the reality is that we gave something not, no offense to you guys you guys need to find the information, but the rest of the world. Just be really clear here that a person can probably help your community to this everybody. If you have a school board elections you have about organize at the community level and though not everybody and put in your friends find parents of the students there or performer parents that have made the time to do it and take over the school board and you set the curriculum that you set the tone for the meetings you set what get the kids are taught you have all of the power here is that the most local level. You showed people asked what you that we can fight back to if we have to legally always, but what you can do is say things happen next year. This year multiple times so there's the people doing is vote them out and it is not as big as is taking on a statewide election or Presidential election put put up some good grassroots organizing in could be basically anybody in the school board is most of people that own purse that runs in case you like it.

Once he wanted target is say everybody sing out where to put in a full slate of new people we trust his parents is that their input that you fight for us the right way they can fight back against the curriculum. We don't want to fight for the curriculum.

We do want. That's where it starts and will make sure that you have to be treated like a terrorist. While you do that because let me tell you what if you got this reading essay. Make sure you lose your election ever can do everything we can to make sure you know some of the school board are you being intimidating interest not to be happy are you being tactfully with the questions that make this whole the whole idea that the Department of Justice counterterrorism task force or counterterrorism unit not as a task force counterterrorism unit is now engaging in on this at that at the highest level. Seven. Forgive us, of course, it's the seventh floor shows you a complete lack of understanding of our constitutional balance Harry. That is what you know you can have a really good idea on the federal level were going to do such and such, but you don't have the constitutional authority to do it because that authority is been reserved to the states what it could be a really good idea, but a really bad execution if you try to do it when you don't have the authority and power to do it. I think that is correct and I would say that the FBI is part of the deep state effort to target common folk to target the middle class to target individuals in our society who are not necessarily experts who are not necessarily coming from elite schools with elite education or delete sources of money and so if you look for instance at social media platforms. If you look at mainstream media. There is this overarching tendency to look down on individual. For instance, who live in flyover country or flyover counties in America and to argue that parents really do not know what is in the best interest of their own children which probably cost Terry McAuliffe the election in Virginia and so there is now an emerging effort. For instance, that goes well beyond what the FBI is doing here in terms of targeting parents as part potentially domestic terrorists.

There is an emerging effort to license parents to raise their own kids. In other words, there is an effort to withdraw state support for parents who wish to raise their own cats and this has already happened in a number of jurisdictions outside of the United States, but there's an emerging trend to push this forward in the United States is when they got questions like this. Harry is a federal nexus are the potential for lot violets to be investigated and charged. What's the motivation behind the criminal activity. They are in search of a crime against parents. That's what this is.

This is exactly what they did in the IRS case and were just not going allow it. I was about to the text it says no they were looking at that would animate jail is not often that we prosecute one of over then you will all go away and never parents himself to be decent. Reckon let that happen.

Of course you fight back. We saw this memo was that this will be recovered you on this for we have lived this before support our work at the ACLJ with matching towns, but the November trip for right now W Patrick donation ACLJ.org only one.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay 68 31 to talk to us on the air that people hold on let me go right to the Fouts Robert in Texas. I like to hey Robert what the secular euro a year now will I think it might now go to the doctor I went back home now that I can't fight it again now more and more each and I will be part of education and special education. However, there are that the graduate audit. Note that I feel your passion is your child the special special education need to be taught. We did a lot of that is we look that I think would we handle 1600 and yet so God I feel your frustration because you be pushed around the school board since goat back to the doctor. The kid needs the medication that you know but go back to school and spent the miseducation else without their Savior realize that not ready for the next step because you had to fight for years and they're being nasty to you. So Robin likely you would be so what they would want to consider babies harassing babies intently on tag. You have passion. I understand that – five children to I would get. I would care a lot of the school was doing what. By the way they have the date they are they are receiving resources to do so, it should have any question whatsoever. But Robin, I think this is what underscores my bigger message. We fight at ACLJ and we fight back if anybody felt like they were actually implementing this federal nexus to charge a parent for just you exercising their First Amendment right but at the bottom line if parrots organize the hearing level is usually nonpartisan. You could take the school boards of pre-quick very quickly you can determine the you have the, the, the curriculum exactly to make sure that parents who have certain specialties of taking care of exactly you can you can make sure that the resources displayed correctly in the spent best for your community. It's not just about the school board members who are also receiving political generations from surprise, surprise, the teacher should exactly because that is who is on the who is actually to blame for all the starting was the far left is what I would call the teachers union. Now and that interact is they appear partisan political of its area be there there out for Terry McFadden. It was out for Terry McAuliffe the day before the election of Virginia absolutely so local school boards public schools and national teachers unions have all managed to become massively dysfunctional in our society. They continue to fail. Children they can can continue to fail parents and accordingly parents are rightly upset and they are beginning to fight back, but they need to continue to fight back by throwing out of office existing school boards and making necessary changes in curriculum making necessary changes with respect to child safety in schools, restrooms, and elsewhere. All of these things need to be done and they can be done on a nonpartisan basis by parents who are fully and completely engaged. I would urge parents. However, once they become engaged to not leave the arena to stay engaged for decades because at the end of the day. Your children are at risk and their address why because many school boards and national teachers unions have been co-opted by political interests but do not care one bit about children than I want, and when asked about this unauthentic subcommittees on this kind of situation I mean is there any way in the house that these can be brought up to meet what what can procedurally be done when you're in the Republican minority party here sure if the majority party J refuses to call the Atty. Gen. back until he comes. The next time the minority party could do something very much like you did with the Ways and Means committee about a month ago. I think where they hold hearing a roundtable, the majority may not attend J but they could still invite the Atty. Gen. to come. Now I don't know if he would come or not but I think they should absolutely do that just quickly, as we look into that. This damage orders 100% right. The parents have the control here.

However, in the intervening midterm elections here at the executive branch continues to go out of bounds like this. And we also have to look at whether or not we need to ask the legislative branch to document funds for this if they're not can use their funds according to the authority that they have J that they should get those funds from the legislative branch what your right to the phones I Dan into the seal be the final call today dad welcome to secular euro the all light on. I love my kids are probably school. We definitely were in the school board meeting but will we hold to a certain level where it parents are asking you to fight.

We take the fight to see you do two things you can school choose this if you want the reasons that victory had earlier the week represents of the members of Congress that was considered to Scott was a lead on a brief use leader every because that revenue provision that first stimulus five would prevent states and localities from providing tax incentives for school choice programs, school choice is an ultimate solution to this whole problem because then these these public schools would have to compete and with a 50 P tape they would not be able be so radical outside of what the community wanted by the Cisco you might get a pretty radical school board and you like a pretty radical, but that's all is only like if you think the school board reflects your community. That's fine. I think what's wrong in the countries most of the most are people being funded by teacher and they run these to pay very small. You really want to do something about it.

Get involved with the school board and sleepy father so significant in that case, the members of Congress and it was great to focus at times with the work of the American Center for Law and Justice were not midway a little bit more than midway through the month of November.
