Glenn Youngkin has really hit the ground running. He is delivering on the issues he ran on. The Daily Wire reports : Youngkin Releases Education Report On Efforts To Fight CRT, ‘Discriminatory’ Programs On the heels of Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin signing an executive order on his first day in office to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in public schools, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has compiled a 30-day report on government actions to rescind discriminatory policies, programs, and resources. VDOE’s report was compiled by Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow. The document is in accordance with Balow’s role to address “inherently defined divisive concepts” in education, which are defined as “advancing any ideas in violation of Title IV and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.” “All Virginia students should have the opportunity to receive an excellent education that teaches all history — the good and the bad, prioritizes academic excellence, and fosters equal opportunities for all students,” Youngkin said in a statement. “Our Virginia students should not be taught to discriminate on the basis of sex, skin color, or religion and VDOE policies should certainly not direct such concepts.” The report outlines eight items that the administration has or is currently targeting, particularly related to EdEquityVA. The department was established by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam in 2021 with the goal of implementing equity and “establishing concrete plans to dismantle any and all forms of systemic racism in Virginia’s public education system utilizing the principles of anti-racism.” VDOE is rescinding all resources on EdEquityVA’s website. This includes rescinding a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) Audit Tool that serves as the main resource for EdEquityVA — which has been used by school leaders to implement DEI and anti-racism.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
