Emails Reveal that National School Board Association Colluded With White House To Draft That Letter Demanding the DOJ Treat Concerned Parents as "Domestic Terrorists"

New reporting suggests that the National School Board Association colluded with the Biden White House regarding their letter demanding that the FBI treat critics of leftwing schoolboards as potential domestic terrorists.

Chuck Ross with another huge scoop:

The country's largest school board association collaborated with the Biden White House before sending a controversial letter calling on the FBI to investigate parents as potential domestic terrorists, according to previously unreported emails.

The emails, obtained by Parents Defending Education through public records requests and reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, reveal that the National School Board Association's president and CEO sent the letter to Biden on Sept. 29 without approval from the organization's board. The letter said that the acts of some parents at school board meetings across the country could be considered "a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes."

The emails also show that the White House asked the association for examples of threats against school board members days before Attorney General Merrick Garland created a task force of officials from the FBI and the Justice Department to determine how to prosecute alleged crimes at school board meetings.

In other words, the White House told them what to put into the letter so that they could then order Merrick Garland to investigate "domestic terrorism."

The letter makes clear that the White House was aware of the letter before it was released, while raising questions about whether the White House colluded with the association on the letter to prompt federal action.

This was all a set-up. It was all fugazi. The White House was already primed to order the DOJ to attack concerned parents -- but they didn't want to make it look wholly political.

So they put the NSBA into writing a tearful letter for them, filled with ominous tales of parents making "threats," to justify what they were going to do anyway.

Merrick Garland testified -- or testilied, really-- in Congress yesterday.

He testilied that he didn't know anything about any of the topics Republicans wanted to talk about.

When asked if he was aware of the bathroom sexual assault of the daughter of one of the men the NSBA was accusing of "terrorism," Merrick Garland claimed he'd heard nothing about it.


Remember, the National School Board Association specifically named Scott Smith -- the father of the sexually-violated girl -- in its list of "incidents" which they claim justified treating concerned parents as "domestic terrorists."

And Merrick Garland, vouched for by National Review's serial voucher Andy McCarthy, claims he just hasn't heard anything about this case.

When asked if he was aware that a leftwing environmental group had stated their own "insurrection" by battering their way into a federal building two weeks ago, Garland similarly claimed he'd never heard the story.

This is Strategic Ignorance.

This is testilying.

Again, I urge Congress to create an Idiot's Corner where they can send someone to read the law or read recent news when they claim to not know things they don't wish to comment on.

Then call them back to the witness chair after their purported ignorance of very basic knowledge has been cured.

Note that Garland also says that this sexual assault is merely a "state case" -- a "local crime story," no doubt -- so that the DOJ should not have any opinion about it.

But the "threats" from parents were also state cases, if they were cases at all.

And the DOJ rushed in to investigate those state cases.



When Merrick Garland asked what evidence he had of rising threats of "domestic terrorism" to justify putting out a memo telling parents they risk an FBI investigation if they get rude with a school board partisan, he said he had... the letter. Just the letter from the NASB (and co-sponsored by the White House).

No independent information. Just the claims of a leftwing partisan organizaiton.

Merrick Garland -- once again, vouched for by National Review's stuffed-suit egg Andy McCarthy -- doesn't want to comment on a whole bunch of things these days.

How much terrorism is the FBI actually organizing?

And here's another thing Merrick Garland won't talk about -- whether or not he should recuse himself due to the fact that his son-in-law is a co-founder of a company that provides Critical Race Theory training materials to public schools.

Merrick Garland, vouched for by National Review's Permanent Government Man, said he has not and would not seek an ethics review of his conflict of interest because, he says, no one is forcing him to do so.

Note that this company lives on government contracts.

More about Merrick Garland's son-in-law's grifter company.

The left-wing education company co-founded by Merrick Garland's son-in-law used a training session for teachers focused on "systemic racism," recommending an article that referred to Trump rally-goers as "examples of white supremacy" akin to the Ku Klux Klan.

Panorama Education, co-founded by Xan Tanner, who is the group's president, claims it has made its way into thousands of schools in the U.S., selling race-focused student and teacher surveys and conducting training on systemic racism and oppression, white supremacy, unconscious or implicit bias, and intersectionality, all under the rubric of "Social-Emotional Learning." The company makes it clear that "SEL" is just a "vehicle" for achieving its goals related to "equity."


One 2021 workshop by Panorama is titled "SEL as Social Justice: Dismantling White Supremacy Within Systems and Self" and includes a slide that highlights a 2020 article titled "How White Supremacy Lives in Our Schools." The article was written by Altagracia Montilla, a self-described "freedom-dreamer, facilitator, and strategist committed to dismantling oppressive systems" who says she helps build "antiracist" work spaces, and the piece trashed supporters of former President Donald Trump.


...

Elizabeth Breese, vice president of marketing at Panorama, told the Washington Examiner the company is "not affiliated with any particular academic philosophy, including critical race theory.” She also claimed "the only relationship between Panorama Education and Attorney General Merrick Garland is that Panorama's co-founder Xan Tanner is AG Garland's son-in-law."

Yes, and the parents who Merrick Garland just sicced the FBI on are working to put his son-in-law out of his leftwing grifter business.

But apart from that -- no, no relation at all.


Meanwhile, Andy McCabe has now gotten zero punishment, thanks to the partisan decision to un-fire him and give him taxpayer money to cover his legal bills.

But you or I would be in prison.


Corrupt cops are the worst criminals.

The penalty for an FBI agent lying should be 10x the length of lying to the FBI.

Let's compromise and say zero times.
