    I wish there was a way to let this guy know a very important detail:

    IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHICH BUILDINGS HAVE BASEMENTS
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    Buta Biberaj, the county’s progressive, top elected prosecutor, who has close ties to the school board’s most liberal members, appeared in court to personally prosecute Smith for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Biberaj ran on a platform of ending “mass incarceration,” but she wanted to put Smith in jail for the misdemeanors.

    Strangely enough he was assassinated before his ideas could take off within the black community. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

    With that in mind maybe somebody is responsible for keeping the black person in poverty. Look what has happened. They used to speak understandable English and strove to better themselves. Now they have a language of their own and live off handouts that will never satisfy. Equality has gone from improving the less fortunate to demoting the more competent.

    Emails Reveal NSBA Top Officers Worked with White House on Letter Targeting Parents as ‘Domestic Terrorists’

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...ic-terrorists/

    DR. SUSAN BERRY 21 Oct 2021

    Emails obtained through a public records request by Parents Defending Education (PDE) appear to indicate the top officers of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) worked with the White House prior to sending their September 29 letter to President Joe Biden requesting federal law enforcement assistance to target parents voicing concerns at local school board meetings.

    The emails, which were reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, reveal that Viola Garcia, NSBA’s president, and its CEO Chip Slaven, sent their letter to Biden without the approval of NSBA board members.

    According to a press release, PDE sent public records requests last week to the local districts of NSBA’s officers, directors, and ex officio voting directors, seeking emails and text and instant messages relevant to the letter sent to Biden.

    “PDE received emails between the board that demonstrate that the board was not consulted before such a letter was sent,” the parents’ group stated.

    A document, which PDE states contains all the redacted emails and other messages can be found here.

    One email in the document appears to show that, on the evening of September 29, Slaven, also NSBA’s interim executive director, forwarded the letter to Biden to NSBA’s board of directors, informing them he and Garcia had been “in talks over the last several weeks with White House staff,” and “they requested additional information on some of the specific threats.”

    Slaven’s message to the NSBA board of directors states:

    As you are probably aware, the level of threats and actual violence have increased the last few weeks and there are now some groups recognized for violence showing up at schools and school board meetings. The level of concern is rising. It is hoped the letter will also call out the bad behavior occurring and promote calmer thinking when people are debating these important issues. This letter is embargoed until tomorrow morning when it will be shared publicly. The letter will also be shared this evening with the state association executive directors.

    On October 2, Garcia wrote to the NSBA directors, “These are troubling times.”

    “NSBA has been engaged with the White House and the Department of Education on these and other issues related to the pandemic for several weeks now,” she continued. “The pandemic and our heightened political environment have created a lot of tension in our society.”

    Garcia added regarding local school board meetings and the request for federal law enforcement intervention:

    What we have witnessed are coordinated efforts, playbooks, for creating chaos at school board meetings and in local communities. Letters across states are very similar and these incidents are beyond random acts. What we are now seeing is a pattern of threats and violence occurring across state lines and via online platforms, which is why we need the federal government’s assistance.

    Emails from members of the NSBA board of directors suggest some were displeased Garcia and Slaven sent a letter to Biden and disclosed it nationally without the approval of the NSBA executive committee.

    “Many of us have been put in a position now of explaining or defending this action of our association as we are asked by members of our community if we consider them domestic terrorists for showing up to our meetings and expressing their opinions,” John W. Halkias, a director from the NSBA’s Central Region, wrote on Oct. 1, for example.

    “[W]hile I believe the intent was good, unfortunately, instead of helping our members and working to decrease the tensions and hostility that many of us are facing, we seem to have fanned those flames of hostility and division,” he continued.

    Halkias added he and other board members “should have been consulted before a letter like this was sent out publicly, and no less to the President of the United States and the National Press.”

    “I also agree that the letter took a stance that went beyond what many of us would consider to be reasonable and used terms that were extreme, and asked for action by the Federal Government that many of us would not request,” he added.

    Steven Chapman, a director from the NSBA’s Pacific Region, responded to the notice of the letter sent to Biden stating it should have “at least” been “reviewed by the executive committee.”

    Attorney General Merrick Garland testified Thursday he took the word of the NSBA that parents voicing their concerns at local school board meetings should be investigated as possible “domestic terrorists.”

    The Biden administration has tapped the president of the National School Boards Association — who penned a letter to President Biden comparing parents speaking out about their children’s education to “domestic terrorism” — for a position on the federal ​board setting policy for students’ performance.

    Viola Garcia was named by Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to ​sit on the National Assessment Governing Board, which was established in 1988 and oversees and sets policy for the National Assessment of Education Progress.

    Because the FBI has such a long, distinguished history of scrupulously respecting the rights of individuals. I can't even type that with a straight face.

    House Republicans Reveal Whistleblower Documents Exposing FBI Use of Counterterrorism Tactics Against Parents

    https://www.breitbart.com/education/...ainst-parents/

    DR. SUSAN BERRY 16 Nov 2021

    A letter from Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland reveals the lawmakers have received documents from a whistleblower that state the FBI is using counterterrorism tactics to investigate parents considered to be potential “domestic terrorists” as they voice concerns about education in their local school districts.

    The documents, which state the FBI is adding “threat tags” to parents, appear to contradict Garland’s testimony on October 21 during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in which he said the Department of Justice and the FBI were not using counterterrorism tools to investigate parents at school board meetings.

    A letter signed by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), ranking member of the House Judiciary, to Garland Tuesday states:

    We are now in receipt of a protected disclosure from a Department whistleblower showing that the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division is compiling and categorizing threat assessments related to parents, including a document directing FBI personnel to use a specific “threat tag” to track potential investigations. This new information calls into question the accuracy and completeness of your sworn testimony.

    In his letter, Jordan also reminded Garland:

    Specifically, you testified that you could not “imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor … a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorists.” You also testified: “I do not think that parents getting angry at school boards for whatever reason constitute domestic terrorism. It’s not even a close question.”

    Jordan wrote the whistleblower provided an FBI email, dated October 20 – the day before Garland’s testimony – that referenced a directive from Garland on October 4 to the FBI to look into school board threats and apply a new “threat tag,” created by the Counterterrorism and Criminal Divisions, to “investigations and assessments of threats specifically directed against school board administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.”

    “The email articulated the purpose as ‘scop[ing] this threat on a national level and provid[ing] an opportunity for comprehensive analysis of the threat picture for effective management with law enforcement partners at all levels,” Jordan wrote.

    On September 30, top officials of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent a letter to President Joe Biden seeking federal assistance to target parents voicing concerns at school board meetings about issues affecting their children’s education. The letter recommended that federal laws such as the Patriot Act be used to explore whether these parents might be identified as “domestic terrorists.”

    The letter, signed by Viola M. Garcia, Ed.D., the group’s president, and Chip Slaven, Esq., NSBA interim executive director and CEO, made specific mention of parents voicing concerns about mask mandates and stated parents were engaging in “propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory within classroom instruction and curricula.”

    “This propaganda continues despite the fact that critical race theory is not taught in public schools and remains a complex law school and graduate school subject well beyond the scope of a K-12 class,” the NSBA officials wrote to Biden.

    On October 4, Garland’s office issued a memorandum that stated:

    Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools, today Attorney General Merrick B. Garland directed the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices to meet in the next 30 days with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend. These sessions will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment and response by law enforcement.

    The Biden Education Department then announced October 13 it had appointed Garcia to the National Assessment Governing Board, a top position that provides oversight regarding which subjects students will be tested on in the National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the Nation’s Report Card.

    In the weeks that followed, NSBA’s own board of directors renounced the letter to Biden sent by Garcia and Slaven, writing on Friday they “regret and apologize” for its content, and at least 26 state school board associations have distanced themselves from NSBA, some totally cutting ties with the organization.

    Emails obtained as well in October through public records requests by Parents Defending Education (PDE) revealed Garcia and Slaven had been “in talks over the last several weeks with White House staff,” and “they requested additional information on some of the specific threats.”

    Garcia wrote to NSBA directors the organization “has been engaged with the White House and the Department of Education on these and other issues related to the pandemic for several weeks now.”

    She added:

    What we have witnessed are coordinated efforts, playbooks, for creating chaos at school board meetings and in local communities. Letters across states are very similar and these incidents are beyond random acts. What we are now seeing is a pattern of threats and violence occurring across state lines and via online platforms, which is why we need the federal government’s assistance.

    “At best, if we assume that you were ignorant of the FBI’s actions in response to your October 4 memorandum at the time of your testimony, this new evidence suggests that your testimony to the Committee was incomplete and requires additional explanation,” Jordan wrote to Garland.

    “If, however, you were aware of the FBI’s actions at the time of your testimony, this evidence shows that you willfully misled the Committee about the nature and extent of the Department’s use of federal counterterrorism tools to target concerned parents at school board meetings,” he added.

    Jordan said the Judiciary Committee would like to further “assess the accuracy and completeness” of his “sworn testimony.”
