Biden's Plans to Crack Down on Parents is Nothing Less Than Tyranny

It's hard to imagine the Biden administration growing any more tyrannical than it already has, but this week, that's exactly what happened. 

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced on Monday that he plans to crack down on allegedly increasing rates of "threats" and "violence" against school administrations.

He is referring, of course, to the thousands of parents who have attended school board meetings in recent months to protest mask mandates, CRT training, and explicit sexual content in school curriculums. 

It's true that many of these parents have been understandably upset, and some have yelled and otherwise disrupted school board meetings. But neither A.G. Merrick Garland nor the School Boards Association he follows have offered a single, credible instance of illegal activity that warrants federal involvement. 

A few parents have been arrested for "trespassing" after they refused to leave a meeting that was abruptly adjourned. School board members didn't want to answer questions from parents, so they ended the meeting without the consent of the attendees.

These incidents hardly warrant the involvement of the FBI, but that didn't stop the National School Board Association from billing parents as "domestic terrorists."

"As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes," the Association wrote in a letter to Garland. 

When teacher's unions and school boards say, "Jump!" the Biden administration asks, "How high?" This issue is no exception, apparently.

Garland's letter is a clear and obvious attempt to intimidate parents into staying at home. It's a perfect example of federal overreach, and we must not allow the Biden administration to get away with it.

In the short term, parents must continue to organize and mobilize against radical ideas that have no place in the classroom. To help with this process, Convention of States Action has joined the American Schools Coalition and launched CRT Central

CRT Central is a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in fighting this emerging racism, sometimes called Critical Race Theory, in our schools. It provides media coverage from across the country. Additionally, you'll find the resources you need to be part of the solution, and to join the growing movement to push state-sponsored racism out of schools. 

In the long-term, we must limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. AG Garland and his boss, Joe Biden, think they can get away with blatant intimidation of constitutionally protected speech. They believe the courts will give them cover, and they believe Congress will refuse to act.

They may be right, but that will soon change. Over five million Americans have joined the Convention of States movement to limit the power and jurisdiction of federal officials like Garland. These amendments can return power to the states and the people, and put our federal officials back in their constitutional box.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
