Citizens, it is time to take our country back from the Political Class, from The Media, and from the Liberal and Conservative Elite

WASHINGTON, DC (October 11, 2021)-- The National School Boards Association sent a letter to President Joseph R. Biden on September 29, 2001 asking him to help stop the alleged threats from parents and other members of the public being made against school boards and dedicated education leaders.
Over the past several weeks the media have been televising clips of parents lambasted school boards members across the nation about their mandates for masks to be warn by their children and the teaching of the Critical Race theory.
The President order the Justice Department to investigate these matters, and last week the Justice Department answered the call, announcing it will use its considerable powers and resources to investigate and possibly prosecute parents and community activists who’ve criticized or threatened school officials. “In the coming days,” U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced in a statement, “the Department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel. Coordination and partnership with local law enforcement is critical to implementing these measures for the benefit of our nation's nearly 14,000 public school districts.”
The Right is calling the move by the Justice Department an attack on the parents First Amendment right of Free Speech, and claim the President is treating parents like domestic terrorists just because they are concerned about their children. A Washington Examiner editorial states,
"This is an obvious abuse of power on Garland's part, even if it’s just a little saber-rattling meant to scare off irate parents and activists. If the attorney general is, in fact, merely flexing his muscles as a warning, it’s still tantamount to a sheriff pointing his gun at a group of demonstrators with no intention of using it. It’s still an abuse of authority and power, one that is meant to cow and suppress legitimate public protest, even if he doesn’t intend to pull the trigger. Moreover, we have no reason to believe Garland’s announcement is merely a scare tactic with no actual teeth. The federal government clearly is not above political targeting."
"Indeed, after everything we’ve seen from the weaponization of the IRS to the CIA spying on the U.S. Senate (and then lying about it ) to intelligence chiefs skating on perjury and other felony charges , there’s no reason to believe the DOJ won’t abuse its power in service of punishing the targets provided by the school board association."
In early September an opinion article written by the political Left news site The DEMCAST stated the Our School Boards Are Under Attack by the Right Wing!
"From one end of this Arizona county to the other, Maricopa school board districts are the latest target for right-wing, Trump and QAnon followers. They bring in outside agitators, create chaos in public meetings and protest curriculums they fear and know nothing about, but their goal is not better education; it’s simple disruption."
"Recently in the Scottsdale and Litchfield Park school districts, local insurrectionists engaged in shouting matches with elected school board members, attempted to seat rogue board members and threatened violence. Such efforts will likely soon be coming to other school boards since these people are following the script of nationalists and white supremacists who attacked the federal government, and democracy itself, on Jan. 6. "
House Republicans say Biden is using the Justice Department for political purposes. Where did we hear that before?
WASHINGTON, June 13, 2021 (Reuters) - The top two Democrats in the U.S. Congress on Sunday vowed to probe the "rogue" actions of the Justice Department during former President Donald Trump's term, including its move to seize the communications records of Democratic lawmakers.
The letter from the NSBA to President Biden appears below.
