Tell Senators to stop Biden’s nomination of LGBTQ activist to Dept. of Education

The U.S. Senate will be considering President Joe Biden’s appointment of Catherine Lhamon as the Assistant Secretary for the Office of Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education.

Lhamon served in this same position in the Obama Administration where she helped co-author the “Dear Colleague” letter (also known as the ” “) that instructed all public schools in America to allow transgender students, or biological males perceiving/identifying themselves to be female, to use the girls’ restroom and locker room.  The letter sought to force public schools to implement Obama’s sexual deviancy bathroom policy or lose federal funding for failure to implement the radical agenda.

Send an email now to your U.S. Senators urging them to vote against the nomination of Catherine Lhamon as Assistant Secretary for the Office of Civil Rights.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Lhamon also follows the ideological pathway that places a sexual deviancy agenda above and against religious liberty.  While she served in the Obama Administration’s Department of Education, the agency published a “shame list” of faith-based colleges and universities requesting a waiver from the administration’s radical “bathroom letter.”

These schools were seeking 1st Amendment religious liberty protections to prevent them from being forced by the federal government to violate their religious beliefs.  Regardless, Lhamon said the Department of Education would “vigorously enforce Title IX’s prohibition against discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity, in every applicable school.”

Contact and urge your Senators to oppose Catherine Lhamon’s nomination.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Family Tells Different Story After Child And Mom Found Safe

Mother arrested after taking baby that sparked Amber Alert, family speaks out

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK  –  A three-month-old baby is safe and mother in custody after an alleged kidnapping that sparked an Amber Alert.

It started around 2:30 Thursday morning at an apartment complex near South Santa Fe and Southeast 44th.

Amber Alert canceled; 3-month-old Oklahoma girl found safe

Police say the mother, 20-year-old Midaysia Highwalker, took the baby, Leyla Rivera, after an altercation with the baby’s father.

People nearby say they often hear arguing.

“We hear them argue all the time, mainly just over dumb, stupid stuff,” neighbor Matthew Seal said.

“I have from time to time heard a little bit of screaming and yelling,” Jamie Jack, family member of a neighbor, said.

Police say the situation then escalated.

“The female, mother of the child, took the baby, indicated that she might harm herself and the baby,” MSgt. Gary Knight with Oklahoma City Police said.

According to the arrest warrant for Highwalker, the baby’s father called his mother saying he needed help removing the baby from the apartment.  He said Highwalker had people over at the residence, and Midaysia was smoking marijuana around the child.  The warrant goes on to say, “Midaysia forcefully took the child from [the father], grabbing the small infant by her head.  Midaysia proceeded to strike [the father’s] head repeatedly and threw various items at him.  Midaysia grabbed a black carjack from the front of the residence and forcefully struck [the father] in the back of his head, causing injury.”

The warrant says Midaysia said she was going to kill the baby’s father and his mother and left the residence with the baby.

That sparked an Amber Alert Thursday morning.

However, Highwalker’s sister, who did not want her name disclosed, says that’s unlike her.
“She might’ve said something to get him away from her, but she wouldn’t make threats and she wouldn’t go through with her threats,” she said.

Police searched for Highwalker and the baby.  Both were found safe at a friend’s home in Midwest City.

“The mother’s in custody, we’ll interview her and see what came of the domestic,” Knight said.

According to Highwalker’s sister and cousin, there’s more to the story.

“Her boyfriend, he’s been putting his hands on her a long time now, and I feel like she did it just to get away from him, and his mom threatens her, tries to fight her, and they used the baby against her and so she just ran to get away,” her sister said.

“My cousin is a really good mom, and she don’t deserve to be locked up.  Her baby daddy has been abusive their whole relationship,” Precious Hopgood, Highwalker’s cousin said.

Highwalker has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, child neglect, domestic abuse in the presence of a minor, threatening to perform an act of violence, embezzlement and destroying property.

SCOTUS Upholds Texas Pro-Life Law

Major Pro-Life Victory: Supreme Court upholds Texas law stopping abortions

A baby’s heartbeat can be detected by transvaginal ultrasound as early as 3 to 4 weeks after conception, or 5 to 6 weeks after the first day of the last menstrual period. This early embryonic heartbeat is fast, often about 160-180 beats per minutes, twice as fast as us adults’!
Robert StrongBow

The United States Supreme Court has ruled on a life-giving decision that will potentially save thousands of unborn babies in Texas.

By a 5-4 vote, the Court said Texas’ law prohibiting abortions once a medical professional detects a heartbeat will stand.  Read the full story from American Family News here.

Advocates for killing babies had filed an emergency appeal asking the Court to block enforcement of the law that went into effect yesterday.  Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the liberal members of the Court to keep abortions going in Texas.

The law, SB8, was passed by the Texas legislature and signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott on May 19.

This is a huge day for the pro-life movement and I ask you to join me in thanking God for this wonderful victory.

Eight Child Predators Arrested In TX

Online Central Texas Child Sex Sting Leads To 8 People Being Arrested

BELTON, TX  –  Eight men have been arrested in a two-day online child sex sting in Bell County, the oldest of whom is 79.

Two of the men traveled more than two hours to meet with whom they thought was a teenage girl, Bell County sheriff’s Maj. T.J. Cruz said in a press release Monday.

Two others are active-duty military personnel, he said.

“Each individual engaged in sexual conversation with a person believed to be a 15- or 16-year-old female and agreed to meet this person to engage in sexual acts for a fee,” Cruz said.

Kevin Wallace, 31;  Harkin Alano, 49;  Christopher Slough, 43, of Irving;  Vidoll Smith, 27, of Temple:  Gustavo Miranda, 38;  Ramon Rodriguez, 24;  Charles Pulley, 63, of Gun Barrel City and Daniel Martinez, 79 were arrested in the sting, Cruz said in a press release Monday.

Slough, Smith, Wallace, and Pulley remained in the Bell County Jail Monday, where they are held in lieu of $50,000 bonds.

Smith was held on bonds totaling $54,000.

He’s also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Alano, Miranda and Rodriguez did not appear on the jail’s online roster Monday.

Woman Throws BoyFriend Under Bus, Then Jailed For Enabling CSA

Woman and Boyfriend molested her Children.

Two arrested in OK for Child Molesting and enabling it

Perkins, OK  –  A woman from Perkins and her ex-boyfriend were arrested after the woman turned in the man for molesting her children, and law enforcement learned she enabled the sexual abuse.

Peggy Gates and Baldwin Lee Irving were booked into the county jail.  Irving was charged with child sexual abuse and conspiracy to commit a felony and Gates was charged with enabling child sexual abuse and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Perkins Officer Daryn Zanfardino and Perkins Deputy Chief Kyle Howard worked the case.

Gates reported the abuse because she was trying to get a protective order against Irving, the affidavit said.

“I asked why she is disclosing now instead of when the prior incidents occurred.  She stated that she was forced to participate because Baldwin Irving threatened to beat her,” Howard said.  “She stated that she and Baldwin had been arguing recently and she wanted to notify what was happening.”

Howard told Zanfardino he believed it was possible Gates was involved with the abuse, and the recent fight may have “fractured the relationship.”

The probable cause affidavit said Gates called police July 10, to have Irving removed from the home, but didn’t disclose abuse at that time.  For this reason, Zanfardino requested a search warrant instead of consent to search the phone.

The children were interviewed at the Ray of Hope Advocacy Center in Bartlesville.  One of the children became disconnected when the autonomy chart was used to describe good or bad touches.

The child told the interviewer Irving’s phone had been factory reset, and that they had to bring Gates the phone.  The other child disclosed sexual abuse by Irving and stated that Irving likes to be naked.  The child also said Irving touched them while they were in the shower.

According to the affidavit, Gates admitted to touching the two children to “satisfy Baldwin.”

Howard made a scenario with Gates and told her to correct him if he was wrong.  He said she allowed her abusive ex-boyfriend back into the picture and learned of his sexual desires.  She saw it as a problem but also wanted to be loved and so her judgement was clouded by love.

“Peggy Gates said that I was spot on,” Howard alleged.

Officers told Gates they knew she reset Irving’s phone, and she allegedly said it was to protect him.

“I asked what would be found on the phone and said a text from Baldwin asking if we should stop doing what we have been doing and her replying no,” Howard alleged.

Payne County Investigator Rockford Brown assisted in the arrest of Irving and interviewed him.

The affidavit said Irving blamed the sexual abuse on Gates offering the children to him.  He admitted to touching one child twice over the clothes while they were asleep, because Gates wanted him to do it.

When Gates was interviewed, she said Irving made untrue statements about her, and she was the one that was forced by Irving.

Both Gates and Irving appeared in court Wednesday and bond was set at $75,000 for Gates and $100,000 for Irving.  Gates will return to court Aug. 4 but Irving does not have a known upcoming court date.
