Islam and Gender Confusion Issues
Two important resolutions passed at the MN February precinct causes for consideration to be included to the Party platforms. Question your candidates for public office about their support for these resolutions. Share and discuss at public events.
Dayton Appointees Insert Mandatory ‘Social Justice’ into Teacher Licensing
Newly appointed members of a new MN teacher licensing agency are overriding legislators to force an extremist ‘social justice’ agenda on teachers and classrooms. Read the CPL article, Intellectual Takeout Article and then TAKE ACTION!
The Office of Administrative Hearings must receive all comments and responses submitted to the administrative law judge no later than 4:30 p.m. on the June 15th. All comments or responses received are public and will be available for review at the Office of Administrative Hearings.
Instructions on How to Comment
The administrative law judge will accept your views either orally at the hearing or in writing at any time before the close of the hearing record. Submit written comments to the Office of Administrative Hearings Rulemaking e-comments
All evidence that you present should refer to the proposed rule, Teacher Licensure Rulemaking R-04534, DEFINITIONS.
Initial Comment Period closes on Friday, June 15, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. The judge must allow written comments to be submitted into the hearing record by the agency and all interested persons for five working days after the hearing ends. At the hearing, the administrative law judge may order this five working day comment period extended for a longer period but for no more than 20 calendar days.
- Comments should relate to agency’s proposed rule.
- Comments received after 4:30 pm will not be accepted.
Rebuttal Comment Period: June 18, 2018 through 4:30 p.m. on June 22, 2018. This five working day rebuttal comment period may change if the administrative law judge extends the initial comment period at the hearing.
Note: Evidence that the PELSB went beyond its legal authority in redefining the legislature’s definition can be seen by the introduction of a bill in the 2018 session, HF4301 with 16 co-authors that would have redefined ‘cultural competence training’ to match the definition of the PELSB. The bill did not get a hearing; however, the effort to get revised PELSB language into law was so important to the social justice activists that they raised the issue on the House floor during debate on the Omnibus Education Bill where they debated this definition extensively.
This PELSB language revision is such an egregious violation of the constitutional right of the legislature to pass our laws that, if the Administrative Law Judge does approve the Rule on the definition of ‘cultural competency training,’ lawsuits will likely be forthcoming.
The “Toolkit” – Take Action!
The Toolkit to Ensure Safe and Supportive Schools for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students was passed July 19, 2017 by an unelected, governor appointed Minnesota Department of Education committee, despite strong opposition from parents and the public. This gender ideology “Toolkit” does not promote the safety and well-being of children but is actually harmful to ALL children.
It’s not too late to Take Action! You CAN make a difference. Go to The “Toolkit” Agenda for action items.
Hidden Agenda: Review of a new guidebook designed for educators and administrators to use with school-aged children
Read this critical review that exposes the biased, inaccurate and dangerous recommendations of this guidebook (PDF). Radical gender activist groups such as the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Gender Spectrum, and the LGBT & HIV Project have published this guidebook for schools across the country to use in setting school policies that endorse, affirm, and promote transgender ideology.
As a Minnesota parent, you need to know that the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) recommends the guidebook as a credible resource to schools, educators, students, families and the community. Any state or school relying on this guidebook as a policy guiding document is thoroughly undermining its credibility and perpetrating a dangerous disservice to children and to the public.

School Boards are the Front Lines

Dear School Board
Here is a letter you can send to your school board officials telling them about the recent court decision on transgender policies and the need to stop the implementation of any policies based on the erroneous interpretation of Title IX by the Obama Administration. Thanks to the The FamilyLeader.com for the original version (modified for Minnesota).
This model policy may serve as a model for school district policies regarding the physical privacy of students. [Download PDF]
Below are questions that every taxpayer should ask their local school administrators, including the administrators of elementary and middle schools, and then they should hightail it to the next school board meeting to request that policy be written mandating that restrooms and locker rooms correspond to objective biological sex. The specificity of the questions is necessary in order to ensure that accurate information is obtained, to make explicit the assumptions embedded in Leftist restroom/locker room practices, and to prevent administrators from obfuscating.

St. Paul Public Libraries Expose Toddlers to Drag Queen Story Hours
Hiding behind the banner of ‘inclusiveness’, young impressionable children are being exposed to sexual confusion and perversion before they can even read or grasp any understanding of human sexuality. St. Paul Public Libraries issued a press release announcing a summertime 3-part “Drag Queen Story Hour” for toddlers and youngsters. The event is advertised as “glitz, glamor and stories” with each event featuring “two performers who will read stories, sing songs, and strut their stuff for an over-the-top story hour”. Read Drag Queen Story Hours and take action!
- Contact St. Paul Public Libraries and tell them Drag Queen advocacy is abusive to children and an
egregious misuse of public funds. Director: Catherine Penkert, 651-266-7073, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Look up your own library online. Will they be hosting similar story hours? Contact them.
- Inform your legislative candidates. Find out if they can tell you why publicly funded libraries are no longer a safe place for children!

Target has decided to invest $20 million to build a single stall bathroom at each Target location in response to a massive national backlash over its transgender restroom policy. Target’s public announcement last April to allow men who say they are transgender to freely use women’s restrooms and changing rooms resulted in a 1st quarter revenue crash of almost $1 billion.
But the new Target single stall restrooms are not for their transgender customers. They are for everybody else! And men who identify as women continue to be allowed to freely use the women’s restrooms and changing rooms. Just say NO to Target.

Eleanor & Park on Summer Reading List Not Fit for Kids. Beware!
Parents of a 15 year old high school girl were astounded to read through the book Eleanor & Park, a book their daughter was given as part of her high school’s summer reading program. “The amount of vile profanity used throughout this publication was absolutely astounding! Never in our 43 years have either of us ever read anything more profane.”
Read this extensive review of Eleanor & Park to help you learn what the schools are using for young adult reading. The New York Times calls it a “beautiful, haunting love story” for young adults. The parents say the book is “pornographic and sexually explicit.” Be advised. Eleanor & Park Review (PDF)
Equally astounding is the decision of the Anoka High School Review Committee even after reading this exhaustive study and critique of this offensive book. [Anoka High School Letter (PDF)]
