Moms for Liberty on the Move

Moms for Liberty is a parents’ rights group founded in Florida during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has quickly grown to approximately 200 chapters in 42 states and has more than 100,000 members. The grassroots organization’s website describes it as “moms, dads, grands, aunts, uncles, friends” who support freedom and parents’ rights. Its founders are Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich, self-described “moms on a mission to stoke the fires of liberty.” Both women are former school board members who witnessed firsthand “how short-sighted and destructive policies directly hurt children and families.”

In an interview with Education Reporter, Tiffany Justice explained that she and Descovich both served as school board members, but she found that after four years, she “could not accomplish what she wanted to accomplish on a broad scale.” She decided to forego another school board race, and she and Descovich together founded Moms for Liberty.


Transgender Grooming Summit Unveiled, then Censored

In September, Canadian news organization The Post Millennial reported on a World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) child transgender summit that was held in Montreal. A team of mental health professionals from Minnesota gathered with other “experts” for panel discussions about treating “pre-pubescent children who have been led to believe they are transgender.” During the conference, these so-called “professionals” referred to young children as “the littles.”

The Millennial exposed a session called “Navigating the Changing Landscape with Littles And Their Families: Exploring The Role Of Mental Health Across Different Practice Settings With Transgender And Gender Diverse Pre-Adolescent Children,” wherein summit participants discussed the various therapeutic approaches to dealing with such children.


Flawed Science Behind Push for Transgender Treatments

Transgender advocates like to play the suicide card when faced with any kind of resistance to their agenda. They emphasize the risks of self-harm when children are denied their wish to transition to the opposite sex. The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), warns that serious injury can result from failure to intervene, even while acknowledging that hormonal and surgical interventions pose risks.

The specter of suicide among transgender youth is raised from the White House to the American Academy of Pediatrics to youth-focused therapists, psychologists, and clinicians, including many who partner with public schools. A fall 2018 AAP Policy Statement asserted that “physicians play a role by offering a safe and inclusive place for transgender and gender-diverse youth, who have high rates of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance use, self-harm and suicide.”


The Science of Switching Genders: It’s Impossible

Despite the efforts of transgender activists to pretend that with hormones and surgeries, men can become women and women can become men, gender is assigned at conception and cannot be changed after birth. Most people recognize that gender is an immutable trait like race.

A recent article in The Daily Signal by author and researcher, Ryan T. Anderson, Ph.D., who penned the 2018 book When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, stated: “The medical evidence suggests that sex reassignment does not adequately address the psychosocial difficulties faced by people who identify as transgender. Even when the procedures are successful technically and cosmetically, and even in cultures that are relatively ‘trans-friendly,’ transitioners still face poor outcomes.”

Plucked from the Burning: Embracing God’s Purpose

Second Edition 2017


  • Beneath the dark cloud of controversy surrounding the midterm elections in Arizona, a ray of light shone with the victory of Republican Tom Horne as the state’s new education superintendent. Horne defeated the Democrat incumbent Kathy Hoffmann in what The Western Journal called “a huge win for Republicans,” not only because the post is a statewide office, but because Horne campaigned against CRT and in support of parental rights.

  • U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito says the status of free speech on our nation’s university and law school campuses is “pretty abysmal, disgraceful, and really dangerous for our future as a united, democratic country.” Alito made his remarks during a live interview on October 25 with Kevin Roberts, president of the Heritage Foundation. “We depend on freedom of speech, and colleges and universities should be setting the example,” Alito said.

  • More scandalous teacher antics are coming to light thanks to Libs of TikTok, and one high school teacher was indefinitely suspended. Along with concerned parents who continue to speak out at school board meetings, these atrocities are being brought to light by pro-child, parent-friendly organizations. On November 2, Libs of TikTok reported that a transgender teacher at Chesapeake High School in Pasadena, MD, was finally suspended months after disturbing videos surfaced of an LGBTQ “safe space” that showed “students engaging in what appears to be sexual acts ...”

The Systemic Racism
of the Teachers’ Unions

As SCOTUS contemplates the future of affirmative action, the teacher’s unions try to save the race-based admission policies.

[In early November], the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that could reverse the 2003 Grutter v. Bollinger decision, in which SCOTUS asserted that the use of an applicant’s race as a factor in an admissions policy of a public educational institution does not violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The current case specifically cites the use of race in the admissions process at Harvard and the University of North Carolina. The plaintiffs, Students for Fair Admissions, maintain that Harvard violates Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, “which bars entities that receive federal funding from discriminating based on race, because Asian American applicants are less likely to be admitted than similarly qualified white, Black, or Hispanic applicants.”
