Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson started the F.A.C.T.S. Task Force

The following explains clearly why Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson started the F.A.C.T.S. Task Force.  Everything explained in this blog post refers to teacher training in Wake County.  It is naïve to believe these are isolated incidents.  The trainings happen with the full approval and participation of the NC Department of Public Instruction.  Wake County is the tip of the spear.  These trainings are well organized and well funded.  They will, unless stopped, come to every school district in NC. I encourage you to visit the sites yourself and to ask what is happening in the Guilford County Schools. Continue reading

The title of H.R. 1319, “American Rescue Plan Act 2021, is inaccurate. If it weren’t so damaging to our country the “rescue” title would be almost laughable

The title of H.R. 1319, “American Rescue Plan Act 2021, is inaccurate. If it weren’t so damaging to our country the “rescue” title would be almost laughable. The bill adds $1.9 Trillion to our national debt and the out-of-control spending of the Federal Government. To put that in perspective – our Federal Government spends $1,000,000 every 20 seconds! Notice the particularly the following general observations: Continue reading

H.R. 6 provides certain aliens with a path to receive permanent resident status and contains other immigration-related provisions.

But wait, there's more! Continue reading
