Michigan and Michigan Parents Have a Decision to Make

RULE 10:If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people” Tenth Amendment, Bill of Rights

 ACTION ITEMS  AT END OF MESSAGE

 

Despot ObamaWith so many public schools in this country failing students, people have expressed surprise at the despot who currently resides in the White House new edict essentially blackmailing states into providing for transgendered in public school bathrooms.
Particularly, here in Michigan where years of Liberal governance has produced not only a bankrupt Detroit Public School System (DPS) but also corruption Feds: 12 Detroit principals stole $1M in kickback scheme

And which our dear Governor desires you, the taxpayer to bail out:

“The Michigan Senate on Tuesday approved a $715 million plan to rescue Detroit Public Schools from insolvency and accumulated debt, but the bipartisan bills may face a bigger challenge in the more conservative state House.The package was backed by Gov. Rick Snyder and Detroit Mayor Duggan, but divided majority Republicans. The state Senate approved the main bill in a 21-16 vote despite opposition from half of the GOP caucus.”*

And counting!

And where the Liberal answer is to actually restrict charter schools in the city!

“As a federal judge, Steven Rhodes presided over the city of Detroit’s bankruptcy. Now in retirement from the judiciary, he made the statements about limiting charters in a TV interview, as reported by The Detroit News. Rhodes said he favors limiting parental choice through a proposed Detroit Education Commission. Rhodes’ comments come as school choice advocates already fear that Detroit’s Democratic political establishment is stacking the deck against charter schools.”**
Meanwhile Michigan’s Liberal leaning School Board is doing all it can to help with the Leftist agenda including Student Records:

“When requested, schools should engage in reasonable and good faith yearbooks, school newspapers, and newsletters) with the chosen name and appropriate gender markers to promote consistency among teachers, administrators, and other staff.”

And proposing teaching LGBTQ rights as peers to voting rights and the abolition of slavery! What an incredible affront to those who fought for Civil Rights.

Restroom SignHowever as author David French lays out in his article President Obama’s Transgender Proclamation Is Far Broader and More Dangerous than You Think

“very act of teaching biology and human physiology will be hate speech unless it’s modified to conform to the new transgender “facts.”….

any statements of dissent — from teachers or students — will be treated as both “anti-science” and “discriminatory,” contributing to a “hostile environment” that schools are legally bound to prohibit….

public schools will now be even further opposed, doctrinally and legally, to orthodox Christianity. Christian parents who send their children to public schools need to be aware of the new “facts.” They will be taught not only that their churches are factually wrong in their assessments of sex and gender but that they are actually bigoted and hateful — comparable to white supremacists.”

 

So why did  Obama choose to issue his directive now?

The Obama administration targeted North Carolina’s new state’s law HB2, which required transgender people to use restrooms in public buildings and schools corresponding to the sex on their birth certificate. The state was the first in the nation to pass such a law.But instead of caving North Carolina exerted its states rights and filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration for its “baseless and blatant overreach” including US Attorney General Loretta Lynch for their “radical reinterpretation” of federal civil rights law.

The Obama administration fired back with a lawsuit of its own with Attorney General Loretta Lynch Felliniesque comparison of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 to Jim Crow laws.

Free Money for Everyone!!States rights is another issue of the Obama administrations despot overreach. The problem being that states instead of exerting their Constitutional rights, have over the years become basically prostitutes of the Federal government for Federal dollars which the Feds get from state’s citizen!  ObamaCare and the Medicaid Expansion serving as to current examples of why Republicans caved, money.

In the midst of these lawsuits, Obama seized on an opportunity. A current ruling on Title IX.

Title IX of federal education law prohibits sexual discrimination for any school (primary, secondary or college) that receives federal funding. But does Title IX apply not just to a persons gender, but also to their perceived gender identity?

According to a recent decision by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals

In a National Review article,author Ed Whelen, “In a divided ruling, a Fourth Circuit panel ruled today, in G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board, that a Virginia school discriminated “on the basis of sex” in violation of Title IX when it barred “G.G.,” a “transgender boy”—that is, a girl who thinks she’s a boy—from using the boys’ restroom. The court, in short, ruled that discrimination on the basis of gender identity is discrimination on the basis of sex, and that Title IX “requires schools to provide transgender students access to restrooms congruent with their gender identity.”

In other words gender or sex as been redefined by The Fourth Circuit. According to the Fourth, it matter not what is on your birth certificate but but what clothes you decide to wear that defines your gender.

The Lefts agenda has always been cultural engineering. To redefine tradition foundation building blocks of society and take what is traditionally, morally considered abnormal and make it normal. To make it cultural acceptable and thus of course recruit more into this newly created group of Leftest beholden voters.

It’s a fact that as something becomes more cultural acceptable that practice grows. As moral absolutes decline per the Leftist agenda then the Liberal leftist mantra of “if it feels good, do it!” grows, so does the philosophy that the most noble pursuit is ones own personal happiness. In Biblical terms, “in those days everyone did what was right in their own eyes” Judges 17:6  And we know the consequences of that. History does repeat itself.

We have seen this is smaller cultural changes. For instance tattoos were once the practice of criminals and  biker gangs. Now it’s become culturally acceptable and even hip and trendy. In a much larger sense, one that has and will continue to change the face of American culture is the acceptance of homosexuality as mainstream, just another “alternative lifestyle.” Besides the fact that no conclusive scientific evidence exist supporting the “born as” propaganda. And if there was wouldn’t we see screaming headlines in every liberal rag in this country?  Alinsky’s Rule 10 has been successfully applied by Liberal activists. Homosexuality, bisexuality and now transgendered becoming the trendy, hip thing.

Alinsky’s RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Has also been successfully applied for as to have a different viewpoint, partially a religious one is now considered, “bigoted” “hateful” “intolerant.”

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are both students of Alinsky.

So what can you do?

 

ACTION ITEMS

 

Contact the Michigan Board of Education with your objections Contact Information HERE

Contact our Attorney General, Bill Schuette and ask:

1. To issue an official opinion, will Michigan comply or not?

I would not put to much stock in our Governor not complying as with the Detroit School crises he would not risk losing any Federal dollars.

Although governors of Arkansas, Texas and others have said they will not comply.

2. Encourage him to join West Virginia, Arizona, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Maine and North Carolina — on to a brief  asking the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals federal to re-hear a case in which it sided with a Virginia transgender student seeking to use the boys’ bathroom, the case that Obama is basing his directive on.

This is especially important in that the SCOTUS has refused to hear,for now a legal precedent key that Fourth Circuit Appeals Court relied on when making their ruling.

Remember Obama’s directive is NOT legally binding and the Obama administration has stated it will not remove Federal funding from North Carolina while litigation is pending

However as Ed Whelen notes: “Regardless of how this gets worked out in the courts, every parent in America will wake up this morning having to deal with an issue they probably never thought they’d have to face several years ago.

Parents now have to decide how they will deal with the reality that their child will not enjoy a basic level of privacy when they use a restroom or locker room when they go to school. Will this bring about a rise in private school attendance? Will it inspire more parents to home school their children?  Will states flirt with the idea of refusing federal education funds?

Either way, if anyone wondered what President Obama meant when he promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” now they know.”
