What Did Election Integrity Laws Achieve In 2022? New Report Details What Worked And What Didn’t

What Did Election Integrity Laws Achieve In 2022? New Report Details What Worked And What Didn’t

In the interim between the major 2022 and 2024 election cycles, Republican lawmakers are focusing on how they can strengthen election laws to ensure key federal and state races are conducted securely and fairly. A new report released by the House Election Integrity Caucus highlights the successful election integrity reforms made this past cycle and makes future recommendations for policymakers.

“A look at what went right and what went wrong in election administration is the first step to securing our elections and restoring voter confidence,” Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., told The Federalist. “The Election Integrity Caucus’ 2022 Midterm Review is a look at the positive efforts of states like Georgia, Texas, and Florida, which are working to implement policies that promote fair, free, and transparent elections. It is also a look at what went wrong in states like New York and California, which implemented policies that encouraged chaos at the ballot box and undermined voter confidence.”

Tenney launched the House Election Integrity Caucus in 2021 to restore “faith in the democratic process,” especially as Democrats tried to diminish and destroy safeguards for administering elections through bills such as HR 1, which sought to federalize American elections, or the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which would overturn voter ID requirements.

The report documents several election integrity laws recently passed by Georgia, Texas, and Florida that strengthened the security of each state’s election process. Georgia’s SB 202 strengthened voter ID requirements and banned the private funding of elections. Despite Democrats’ characterization of the bill — which also expanded early voting — as “Jim Crow 2.0” and other slurs, the report notes that Georgia experienced “historic early turnout that rivaled presidential cycles,” especially among minority voters.

“The Lone Star State gets five stars for election administration!” the report declares, noting that Texas’ SB 1 gave poll watchers more access to “salient aspects of the elections process,” in addition to legalizing ballot curing.

The report also highlights Florida’s SB 90, which strengthened voter ID requirements, barred unsolicited mail-in balloting, and prohibited “ballot harvesting by political operatives.”

“Between Hurricanes Ian and Nicole, Florida organized and executed a safe and secure midterm election,” the report reads. “Preliminary numbers have Florida turnout of over 7.5M or 49.3% of their voting-eligible population.”

Next the report details problematic election-related legislation passed by both New York and California. New York’s SB 1046 is a state version of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, requiring “covered jurisdictions” to “preclear” any changes to election-related laws or policies that could potentially have a disparate impact on racial minorities. In California, automatic mail-in voting was established via AB 37, making California a permanent mail-in ballot state.

The report ends with several recommendations for policymakers on the national and state level, including strengthening photo ID requirements, maintaining accurate state voter rolls, ensuring Election Day does not become “Election Month,” and passing the American Confidence in Elections Act, “a comprehensive legislative package that would provide states with tools to boost election integrity, prohibit non-citizens from voting, ban Zuckerbucks, and end Biden’s Executive Order 14019 turning federal agencies into partisan get-out-the-vote operations.”

While the work of the House Election Integrity Caucus has just begun, Tenney told The Federalist she “applaud[s] the work of the legislatures, chief election officers, and executives who [before the 2022 cycle] got it right by prioritizing election integrity — guaranteeing our elections are secure by making it harder to cheat and more accessible by making it easier to vote.”

Why DeSantis Should Be Skeptical Of Promised Revisions To The White House-Backed Racist AP Class

Just days after getting the Biden White House to support its new, openly Marxist high school class, College Board appears to have backed down after Gov. Ron DeSantis’ refusal to allow the class into Florida. On Tuesday, the massive curriculum company said it is revising its draft Advanced Placement African-American studies class and will release the changes within a week.

On Friday and Sunday, respectively, the White House press secretary and U.S. vice president publicly criticized the DeSantis administration for denying the class entry into Florida. The two characterized as “American history” the critical race theory-laden teaching materials that spoke positively of violence and racial strife and presented no opposing nor divergent perspectives.

DeSantis responded on Monday by pointing out that drafts of official materials for the class, which College Board has refused to release publicly, include “queer theory” and characterize extremist, Black Panther-style racial ideology as representing black Americans.

After College Board’s Tuesday announcement, the DeSantis administration celebrated the promised revisions as a win.

“As Governor DeSantis said, African American History is American History, and we will not allow any organization to use an academic course as a gateway for indoctrination and a political agenda. We look forward to reviewing the College Board’s changes and expect the removal of content on Critical Race Theory, Black Queer Studies, Intersectionality and other topics that violate our laws,” responded Florida’s education department in a statement.

This is definitely a win, but as DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin notes above, it’s not yet a complete win. The College Board deserves continued scrutiny, if not an expanded investigation of its teaching materials in every Republican-controlled state, for multiple reasons.

People Who Can’t Tell Their Draft Was Racist Aren’t Credible

The first and most obvious reason is the original draft of this class. As College Board admits, the racist preliminary draft of this course is being piloted in dozens of high schools right now. A company that puts out such materials into classrooms is not a company one can trust to fix what’s wrong with them.

Furthermore, the company released this appalling draft under cover of secrecy. College Board alleges that its curricula used in public schools and funded almost entirely by tax dollars comprise “trade secrets” and therefore can’t be released to the taxpayers paying for them. Such secrecy and intimidation are suspicious in themselves and should be regarded as such.

Anything administered to children in public schools should be able to be published or, in the limited instance of tests, viewed by outside reviewers on behalf of the public. Anyone who resists such basic public transparency that is expected of every government entity and action doesn’t deserve public contracts.

Pulling Strings with the White House Should Be a Nonstarter with All Republicans

A third reason not to give College Board the benefit of the doubt is its use of close ties with the Democrat-controlled White House to push lies about its draft curricula and to politicize American history. As DeSantis said, it’s completely false to describe “queer theory” as somehow relevant to African-American history. Yet that is what the White House did when running interference for College Board on this class.

College Board President David Coleman was the chief architect of Common Core. Because of that history, he is personally known to multiple high-level educrats from the Obama White House, which has been largely replicated in the Biden administration. He clearly used his extremely high-level Democrat connections to try to protect his corporation’s lucrative curriculum monopoly here.

That’s not the action of an honest and apolitical entity. It’s the action of a politicized private organization playing hardball to protect its use of its education monopoly to help its preferred political party. Siccing the Democrat White House on your PR problem is certainly a high-wattage play, but it should immediately disqualify College Board from doing any business with Republicans. Any Republicans who can’t see that and act accordingly are fools.

A fourth reason to distrust the College Board’s pledged “revisions” is that it previously responded to criticism of overt leftist curricular bias by obscuring yet retaining that bias. College Board did this, for example, in its recently revised U.S. and European history courses, as the National Association of Scholars has documented.

This, by the way, is a key reason neither DeSantis nor any other Republican officeholder with authority over education should be satisfied with College Board’s actions regarding the draft African-American studies class. They should investigate College Board’s other courses and consider also forbidding their use in public schools.

Academia Needs Slashing and Burning, Not Expansion

That plays into a fifth reason to be skeptical of College Board’s promised revisions to this class, plus its entire Advanced Placement (AP) series. These AP classes grant both high school and college credit after a satisfactory final test score. They are designed to offer college classes to high school students. It’s an ingenious idea, although also reveals the low quality of most American high schools. Yet it’s also a dangerous idea, because of the well-documented far-left bias of higher education institutions.

As Scott Yenor wrote recently in American Reformer, the political right has loudly complained about leftist bias in academia since at least the 1950s. Yet higher education has only gotten worse, to the point that the vast majority of college classes today work not to educate but to indoctrinate. It’s time to stop pretending to reform this garbage system. Instead of offering it any respect, it’s time to slash and burn it and build alternative infrastructure.

Studies show that more than one-third of those who enter college do not graduate, although many do end up in debt for the degree they didn’t get. Of those who do graduate, nearly half have effectively learned nothing. They spent four — or, more often, six! — years of their young lives, plus millions in taxpayer funds, learning nothing. In some respects, such as American citizenship, Ivy League college graduates are actually dumber after they’ve spent more time in college.

Extending this dysfunctional and biased system into high school, as College Board’s Advanced Placement system exists to do, is the exact wrong approach. It may give more intellectual engagement to bright teens, but at the price of miseducating them with far-left lies about reality. What we need instead are actually good classes, not crap classes given some lipstick and slapped on the kids.

It’s time to be done trusting College Board. That organization has helped prop up a corrupt system and abused its power out of sight of parents and taxpayers for far too long. It’s time for real scrutiny not only of all the materials it puts out, but also of how College Board classes look when rolled out into classrooms, and of the corrupt and broken higher education system they ape.

Mere textual changes are not enough. The objectionable materials can be easily doctored — and have been before — to hide how teachers are taught to use them in College Board trainings and in Marxist-leaning teachers colleges. We should in fact expect that to be happening, given the context.

No more “trust, buy, and then verify” from America’s deeply corrupt education institutions, including College Board. Verification first from these highly paid liars.

Mass Exodus: Historic Number of New Yorkers Flocked to Florida in 2022

Blue New York lost tens of thousands of residents to Florida in 2022, reaching historic figures, according to data from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

According to the data, 64,577 New Yorkers made history, making the official switch to the Sunshine State in 2022 by changing over their licenses last year. That’s up from the 61,728 who fled the Empire State for Florida the year prior, in 2021.

According to the New York Post, one staffer at the Jacksonville DMV spoke of the influx, listening to the complaints of weary New Yorkers making the transition to what Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has dubbed the “free state of Florida.”

“They come in every day,” the staffer said. “I hear all the complaints. I feel like a therapist sometimes.”

The latest figures coincide with data from the U.S. Census Bureau, which found blue states such as California and New York facing six-figure declines in terms of population since 2020.

On April 1, 2020, for example, New York had a population of 20,201,230. That figure decreased to 19,857,492 as of July 1, 2021, and it dropped again to 19,677,151 in July 2022. Further, New York stands as the state that has experienced the largest population decrease in terms of percent– a 0.9 percent decrease.

On the flip side, Florida, along with Texas, stands as one of the “largest gaining states” over the past year as blue states continue in their trends of decline following years of mandates, restrictions, and overreaching policies from officials and leaders.

Florida, specifically, is the “fastest-growing state” in the nation, increasing by 1.9 percent, compared to New York’s 0.9 percent loss. According to data from the U.S. Census bureau, Florida’s population stood at 22,244,823. 

The Sunshine State — an apparent favorite of New Yorkers seeking refuge —  also falls behind Texas as the “second largest gaining state” in the country, adding over 400,000 residents. 

Coinciding with that is the boom Florida Republicans are experiencing in terms of voter registration, overtaking Democrats for the first time in late 2021. That lead has grown to over 356,000 as of November 30, 2022. 

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who won his reelection bid by roughly 1.5 million votes, has consistently presented Florida as an “oasis of freedom” following years of standing up to mandates, restrictions, and attempts to inject woke ideology into children’s classrooms.

WH Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Attacks Ron DeSantis over Florida Rejecting Woke AP Course: ‘Incomprehensible’

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre attacked Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) over the state rejecting a new AP (Advanced Placement) African American Studies course. The curriculum’s content includes sections on “Black Queer Studies,” cultural appropriation, reparations, and the “global influence of the Black Lives Matter” movement.

“It is incomprehensible to see — this block — that DeSantis has put forward. If you think about the study of black Americans, that is what he wants to block,” Jean-Pierre claimed during a press conference on Friday.

Watch Below:

The White House Press Secretary then went on to complain about how Florida has also implemented anti-grooming legislation.

“These types of actions aren’t new. They are not new from what we’re seeing, especially from Florida, sadly. Florida currently bans teachers from talking about who they are and who they love,” she said.

Jean-Pierre was referring to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which prohibits teachers from discussing sexuality and transgender ideology with children in kindergarten through third grade.

“It is incomprehensible,” she repeated.

“They have banned more books in schools and libraries than almost every other state in the country,” the press secretary further lamented of Florida.

Jean-Pierre was likely referring to DeSantis signing a bill last year that obligated all elementary schools to provide a list of every book available in their libraries, as well as mandating that school boards let the public know when they plan to approve new books.

Children’s books that are fighting for survival at public schools because of their LGBTQ content are displayed at the annual Pride Town Hall at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, MD, May 21, 2022, with students and their families, staff, youth service providers and community members attending. The event featured workshops and a resource fair and keynote speaker Gavin Grimm, a nationally known advocate for transgender rights. (Astrid Riecken for The Washington Post via Getty Images)

Additionally, the legislation would allow anyone to comment, and any objections to the material would have to be reported to the state.

This move was made after DeSantis noted that Florida public schools were making sexually explicit books available to children. The governor’s aim in signing the bill was to give parents a say in which books can be in school libraries and which cannot, Associated Press reported.

Recently, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) rejected the AP African American Studies course over its woke content, asserting that the course itself is “inexplicably contrary to Florida law and significantly lacks educational value.”

The College Board — which runs the SAT test and the AP program — launched the new AP African-American Studies (APAAS) course.

FDOE’s letter was addressed to Brian Barnes, Senior Director, College Board Florida Partnership, and serves as what the department calls a confirmation that the FDOE “does not approve the inclusion of the Advanced Placement (AP) African American Studies course in the Florida Course Code Directory and Instructional Personnel Assignments (adopted in State Board of Education Rule 6A-l.09441, Florida Administrative Code).”

Florida Governor DeSantis on COVID “Vaccines” – Savior or Murderer? 19,000% Increase in Senior Deaths After COVID Shots

Florida Governor DeSantis on COVID “Vaccines” – Savior or Murderer? 19,000% Increase in Senior Deaths After COVID Shots

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being primed by the Republican Party to become the next Republican nominee for the office of the President of the United States.

He is being advertised as anti-COVID injections, in an effort to offer a clear choice over the very pro-vaccine Donald Trump.

However, if we look at the history of the roll-out of the COVID injections in the State of Florida, it becomes very clear from DeSantis’ previous statements and actions that he has always been pro-COVID injections, and that he was also part of Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.

I have put together a video that documents his history in rolling out the shots in the State of Florida that is under 10 minutes. This is from our Bitchute channel, and it will also be on our Odysee and Telegram channels.

Governor DeSantis strongly pushed the shots on seniors in Florida, and to this day neither he nor his Surgeon General have stopped recommending the shots for seniors.

Data from the U.S. Government Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) show a 19,000% increase in the deaths of seniors following the experimental COVID-19 “vaccines,” compared to the average of seniors who died following all FDA-approved vaccines from the previous 10 years prior to COVID in 2020.

From December 2020, when the experimental COVID shots started, through the end of 2021, a period of 13 months, there are 396 deaths, 450 permanent disabilities, 1,872 ER visits, and 2,551 hospitalizations for people aged 60 and over in the State of Florida. (Source.)

That is a death rate of 30.5 deaths per month following COVID-19 shots for seniors in Florida.

For the 10 years prior to COVID, from 2010 through the end of 2019, there were only 5,742 cases filed in VAERS for seniors, including 19 deaths, 107 permanent disabilities, 1,233 ER visits, and 219 hospitalizations for 10 years. (Source.)

That is a death rate of .16 deaths per month, which means there has been a 19,000% increase in deaths among those over the age of 60 in Florida after taking a COVID-19 shot, as opposed to all other FDA-approved vaccines, including the annual flu shot which is promoted heavily among seniors, for the previous 10 years.

And Governor DeSantis is proud of how many seniors he injected with these bioweapon shots, as the State of Florida continues to recommend them.

As to the children in the State of Florida, they are still being injected with these bioweapons, even though they are not “recommended.” Over a thousand children have been recorded in VAERS as suffering adverse reactions following a COVID experimental shot (source), and many babies are included, even before the shots were authorized by the FDA for babies and toddlers, because Florida is home to three COVID-19 ongoing vaccine trials for Moderna for babies and toddlers. (Source.)

Here is one baby from Florida listed in VAERS who apparently died in one of these trials two days after he was injected.

VAERS ID: 1261766 – Age 1 year old, Location Florida, Date: April 10, 2021. Write up: increased body temperature, seizure, death.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is no savior. He is a murderer, and there is enough evidence right here for anyone in Florida who lost a child or a parent due to Governor DeSantis’ COVID-19 vaccination policy to sue him for criminal negligence and murder.

You’ll have to do it in Civil Court as there is not a single prosecutor anywhere in the U.S. who would dare to press charges against the Florida governor, and sadly, there is probably not a judge anywhere in Florida either who would have the courage to do the right thing and hear this case.

But let this stand as a public proclamation against Governor Ron DeSantis for the evidence that convicts him. The blood of these Floridians is on his hands, and he will pay the price in due time, as will all of those complicit with his crimes.

The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.

He will judge the world in righteousness; he will govern the peoples with justice.

The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.

The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.

The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.

But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.

Arise, O LORD, let not man triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence. Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men. (Psalms 9)

‘Hillsdale Of The South’: DeSantis Appointees Are Restoring Florida’s Public Liberal Arts College To Classical Roots

After Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced last week he was appointing six new members to the New College of Florida’s Board of Trustees, leftists have gone berserk.

The small liberal arts school in Sarasota, Florida, is regarded as the most left-leaning college in the state. Functioning as Florida’s honors college, it has just slightly more than 700 students and 90 full-time faculty members. In recent years, it has embraced critical race theory-type initiatives and expanded its “gender studies” program to include a “gender diversity center” and “queer studies.”

By appointing enough new trustees to give the 13-member board a conservative majority, however, DeSantis hopes to transform the school using the same classical education model employed by Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts school in southern Michigan whose core curriculum emphasizes the classical texts of the Western tradition.

“It is our hope that New College of Florida will become Florida’s classical college, more along the lines of a Hillsdale of the South,” DeSantis Chief of Staff James Uthmeier told National Review.

DeSantis’ appointments include Charles Kesler, a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute and editor of the Claremont Review of Books, a conservative literary publication; Mark Bauerlein, a professor emeritus at Emory University and editor at the ecumenical journal First Things Magazine; Matthew Spalding, vice president of the graduate school of government at Hillsdale College in Washington, D.C.; and Chris Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and conservative investigative journalist.

The conservative majority intends to transform the New College by restructuring its administration and academic departments, as well as creating a new core curriculum and pedagogy. And the left is livid.

The New York Times’ Michelle Goldberg condescendingly writes that “DeSantis Allies Plot the Hostile Takeover of a Liberal College,” characterizing the new majority’s efforts as an “assault” on “academic freedom” that penalizes every professor “whose worldview is at odds with the Republican Party.” The Daily Beast laments “They Were Loving College. Then Ron DeSantis Got Involved” (the article quotes an embattled 22-year-old New College sophomore, who, upon hearing the news, “got really sad and then just, like, laid down”). Suffice it to say, the media hit pieces (and angry tweets) keep coming.

Despite the media onslaught, the new trustees remain undaunted. Rufo told Goldberg “We anticipate that this is going to be a process that involves conflict.”

And in a statement provided to The Federalist, Spalding rejected the idea that the conservative board members are going to remake the New College into a cookie-cutter version of Hillsdale.

“As a professor, dean, and vice president at a successful liberal arts college, my focus is on the work at hand: restoring New College’s ‘distinctive mission’ as the ‘residential liberal arts honors college’ of Florida,” he said. “I appreciate the complimentary nods to Hillsdale College, but we are not going to serve New College’s mission by remaking it into a carbon copy of another institution.”

Instead, Spalding is concerned with bringing the New College back to its roots as a traditional liberal arts school:

In the liberal arts, the college — which means a partnership, one between students and faculty — works together and comes into conversation with great thinkers and writers who’ve asked timeless questions about human purpose, about the good, and justice, and how to live well. The very aim of liberal arts education is to liberate the mind from current fads and popular ideologies by inviting students to address these questions in pursuit of the truth about what it means to be fully human. That pursuit transcends contemporary politics. Such an education teaches one how to think, not what to think.

Current New College students (and their wannabe defenders in the press) should welcome such a refreshing approach to learning, after enduring the constant onslaught of leftist propaganda and being told what to think.

If States Followed The Science, They’d Emulate Europe To Protect Kids With Gender Dysphoria

In late December, the Supreme Court of Texas decided it would take up the custody case of James Younger, a child from Texas whose mother insists the male child identifies as a girl. The child’s father, Jeff Younger, maintains his son is a boy. Should Jeff Younger lose custody of his kid, the boy will be subjected to surgeries mutilating the young child’s genitals in the mother’s pursuit of raising him as a girl. 

Recent years have seen a “sharp rise” in the number of American youth ages 13 to 17 who say they identify as the opposite sex or as non-binary. This growing population of gender-confused adolescents is nearly double what it was just five years ago.

The sharp rise comes amidst a global and national debate around the correct standard of care for the treatment of gender confusion in minors. Some European countries were using an unproven protocol tried in the Netherlands referred to as “gender-affirming care.” This experimental approach treats children who express discomfort with their sex with drugs (such as puberty blockers and wrong-sex hormones) and surgeries (such as mastectomies). Although there is no evidence that these hormonal and surgical changes to a child’s body produce improved mental health outcomes, there is growing evidence of permanent physical damage, including loss of bone density, greater risk of disease, and infertility.

Recognizing the failure of the “gender-affirming” approach to achieve improved outcomes — and spurred by the lawsuit of a young woman who was prescribed puberty-blocking drugs at just 16 years old — countries such as SwedenFinland, and England have made a clear U-turn away from some or all of these questionable protocols. After thoroughly reviewing the reliable evidence, these countries concluded that the risks of “gender-affirming care” far outweigh any potential benefits.

Instead, they are returning to psychological and psychiatric care as the starting point for addressing gender confusion in children — a model known as “watchful waiting” — noting that gender dysphoria in teens could be just a “transient phase” which should not be mishandled with radical, life-altering drugs and surgeries.

Nationally in the U.S., however, the “gender-affirming care” model is emphatically pushed as the only acceptable standard of care. Some states rely on recommendations from the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH), which is not a medical organization, but an ideologically driven advocacy group. And prominent medical organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) promote “gender-affirming care” despite the majority of its members supporting more review and discussion, noting the lack of evidence-based science, and raising persuasive findings that gender confusion has been clearly linked to other factors affecting children, including autism and social contagion.

Manhattan Institute Fellow Leor Sapir describes what is happening as an “exceptionalism” for “gender-affirming care,” exempting organizations like the AAP and the Endocrine Society from normal requirements in medicine that any recommended protocols be backed by objective evidence. The best evidence actually shows that the majority of children (61-98 percent) will “desist” (stop identifying with the opposite sex) if allowed to progress normally through puberty. It also shows that so-called social transition (using different names and pronouns) actually causes 97.5 percent of children to persist in cross-sex identification and that 96 to 98 percent of those who start on puberty blockers will move on to cross-sex hormones.

Fortunately, states like Florida are stepping up and leading by example in this national debate. In April 2022, the Florida Department of Health issued guidance (after a systematic review of available data and studies which revealed low-quality evidence to support “gender-affirming care”) that social transition, wrong-sex hormones, and surgeries should not be used to treat gender dysphoria in children under 18.

Then, in June 2022, the Florida deputy secretary for Medicaid issued a report concurring that “sex reassignment treatment” (which is the same as so-called “gender-affirming care”) is “experimental and investigational,” and “poses irreversible consequences, exacerbate[s] or fail[s] to alleviate existing mental health conditions, and cause[s] infertility or sterility.”

Finally, in November 2022, the Florida Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine voted to adopt a proposed standard of care prohibiting the use of “gender-affirming care” to address sexual confusion in minor children (with an exception made only for those who are already receiving such regimens).

The Florida medical boards’ thorough review of the best available evidence about how to treat gender dysphoria in children was much needed during a time when our nation’s most well-known medical associations have been captured by destructive ideology. States like AlabamaArkansas, Arizona, and Tennessee have also sought to protect children from the lifelong harms caused by dangerous drugs and surgeries through legislation.

Not having a standard of care based on real science and real evidence is problematic for both parents and children. In child custody cases where parents may disagree on the best treatment for their sex-confused child, judges now defer almost exclusively to medical experts who support the activist-driven and unscientific standard of care. This deference affected child custody decisions in CaliforniaTexas, and Ohio, leading to the erasure of the rights of parents who do not support radical changes to their child’s body in order to affirm his or her perceived (and likely transient) incongruent gender identity.

Also, government officials like the Biden administration and California Gov. Gavin Newsom are embedding a politically driven standard of care into rulesguidance, and legislation like California’s SB 107, which allows California to take custody of a child away from parents in any state who disagree with attempts at “gender transition.” This undermines the rights of parents who prefer the watchful waiting approach to directing their child’s health care.

Further, youth who have undergone hormonal and surgical interventions are now “detransitioning” (reconciling with their sex) and experiencing deep regret at what they have lost. A growing number are sounding the alarm that they were too young to understand the consequences of what activists call “gender-affirming care” and that doctors and pharmaceutical companies sacrificed their health for profit. Chloe Cole, a California teenager, was put on puberty blockers and testosterone at age 13, and doctors removed her breasts at age 15. She has now filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against doctors and one of the nation’s largest insurance companies.

Following the lead of Florida, Arkansas, Alabama, and even western European nations, states should examine the best science and evidence rather than succumbing to harmful activist-driven ideology. This will not only preserve the constitutional right of parents to pursue non-invasive psychological treatment options, but it will also save children from the lifelong irreparable harms of being rushed down a direct pipeline from social transition to sterilization.

How Many Taxpayer Dollars Do Florida’s State Universities Drop On Bogus Racial Indoctrination? DeSantis Demands Receipts

How Many Taxpayer Dollars Do Florida’s State Universities Drop On Bogus Racial Indoctrination? DeSantis Demands Receipts

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is demanding state universities reveal how much money they squander on programs and staff to push the racially divisive and discriminatory ideology embedded in so-called “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) initiatives and critical race theory (CRT).

According to a memo released by DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin, every institution within the Florida College System and State University System must provide the administration with “a comprehensive list of all staff, programs, and campus activities” pertaining to DEI and CRT by no later than Jan. 13. The administration further requests a detailed cost breakdown of the lists, such as the “total funding spent to support the initiative,” as well as the amount of each total figure that is funded by the state.

“As the Executive Office of the Governor prepares policy and budget proposals ahead of the 2023 Legislative Session, it is important that we have a full understanding of the operational expenses of state institutions,” the memo reads.

Similar to how traditional Marxism wields economic status to foment social angst between the rich and poor (bourgeoisie and proletariat), CRT wields race to accomplish the same goal by creating an “us vs. them” dynamic among the unsuspecting populace. Rather than teaching children to judge others by the content of their character, critical race theory brainwashes them into viewing the world through a racial lens, wherein all white people are classified as oppressors and non-white people as oppressed.

Meanwhile, poorly-named “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) programs bring such ideals into the workplace and higher education by dismissing merit for characteristics such as skin color and sexuality. Individuals who qualify for a certain position on the merits, but don’t meet the entity’s goal of being more “diverse,” are passed over in favor of those who check whatever box the “woke” crowd finds acceptable.

During his first term as governor, DeSantis worked with the Florida legislature to combat the left’s ideological crusade throughout Florida’s classrooms. In April 2022, the Republican governor signed legislation prohibiting the teaching of CRT in public schools and at events such as workplace training sessions. A month prior, he also signed the “Parental Rights in Education” bill that bars “classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity in kindergarten through 3rd grade.”

“We must ensure school systems are responsive to parents and to students, not partisan interest groups, and we must ensure that our institutions of higher learning are focused on academic excellence and the pursuit of truth, not the imposition of trendy ideology,” DeSantis said during his inaugural speech on Tuesday.
