Democrats swore that Barack Obama Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland was a moderate.
But his time as Attorney General has proven he is a stone-cold leftist.
And one of Garland’s most insane power grabs just blew up in his face.
So-called moderate Attorney General Merrick Garland is weaponizing the Department of Justice in ways never seen before.
He so thoroughly crossed the line by allowing secret warrants against independent journalist James O’Keefe.
Even left-wing critics of O’Keefe came to his defense in the face of shocking overreach.
Garland also went way too far when he sicced the FBI on parents attending school board meetings at the behest of the National School Board Association.
The move was so outrageous, some members of the NSBA resigned after finding out what the organization had done.
Now Dan Troxell, executive director of the Texas Association of School Boards, is distancing his organization from the NSBA.
Troxell said in a statement, “As you know, TASB has been monitoring carefully NSBA’s efforts to rebuild trust with its members over the past eight months and awaiting the release of its independent investigation into the Sept. 29 letter…While we acknowledge that improvements have been made under NSBA’s new leadership, it’s clear that those efforts don’t go far enough at this time to overcome the operational deficiencies and lack of internal controls outlined in the investigation report.”
Garland’s DOJ investigation into parents treated them as potential domestic terrorists.
A whistleblower came forward and revealed just how serious the FBI’s targeting of parents was.
That prompted Republican Congressman Jim Jordan to write a letter to Garland where he stated, “In sworn testimony before this Committee, you denied that the Department of Justice or its components were using counterterrorism statutes and resources to target parents at school board meetings. We now have evidence that contrary to your testimony, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has labeled at least dozens of investigations into parents with a threat tag created by the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division to assess and track investigations related to school boards. These cases include investigations into parents upset about mask mandates and state elected officials who publicly voiced opposition to vaccine mandates. These investigations into concerned parents are the direct result of, and would not have occurred but for, your directive to federal law enforcement to target these categories of people.”
That also dovetails with the Department of Homeland Security suggesting that vaccine skeptics were potential terror threats.
The establishment is showing just how serious it is about maintaining control.
Jordan added, “On October 4, 2021, in response to a request from the National School Boards Association that the federal government use counterterrorism tools, including the Patriot Act, to target parents at school board meetings, you issued a memorandum directing the FBI to address these threats. The press release accompanying your memorandum highlighted the FBI’s National Threat Operations Center to serve as a snitch-line for tips about parents at school board meetings. By October 20, the FBI had operationalized your directive. In an FBI-wide email, the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division and Criminal Division announced the creation of a new threat tag — EDUOFFICIALS — and directed all FBI personnel to apply it to school board-related threats.”
Democrats have had virtual monopoly control over education for decades, and they’re terrified of losing their stranglehold.
That’s why they are pushing back so hard against conservative parents.
