Blain Dillard, the Carey, N.C., parent in the Wake County School District that we wrote about several weeks ago who is being sued by a Common Core math curriculum company for speaking out against the Mathematics Vision Project (MVP), is now countersuing: A Cary parent who is being sued for libel and slander for criticizing a controversial math curriculum that’s being used in the Wake County Public School System has filed a countersuit against the Utah-based company, Mathematics Vision Project, also known as MVP.  Blain Dillard, a father of three, is asking that MVP pay his attorney’s fees and damages, anywhere from

Common Core Math Publisher Sues Parent for Opposing Curriculum

According to a local report, the publisher of a controversial Common Core math curriculum used in the Wake County, N.C., public school district (WCPSS) is suing an individual parent for “libel and slander” as well as “tortuous interference” for vocally criticizing the district’s use of the curriculum he says has harmed the education of his son and many other students in the district. The Utah-based publisher, Mathematics Vision Project (MVP), claims that parent Blain Dillard acted with “reckless disregard” that has harmed the company, while Dillard claims he is “innocent of all allegations and can defend each and every point made

Pro-Abortion Lobby Deploys LGBT Playbook to Blackmail Georgia

The LGBT movement has successfully used corporate America to bully states into repealing or blocking laws it doesn’t like. Now the pro-abortion movement is trying to use the same playbook to strong-arm the states into repealing pro-life laws. Recall 2016, when North Carolina considered a law establishing that people had no right to use public bathrooms designated for the opposite sex. The organized backlash began immediately. Financial giant PayPal canceled plans for a small headquarters in Charlotte, the NCAA threatened to cancel future events in the state, and dozens of leftist states and cities banned their employees from traveling there

More Democrat Governors Refuse to Stand Against Infanticide

Two swing state Democrat governors have chosen to stand for late-term abortion and infanticide in Easter week. If Republicans are smart, they will hammer them on it. First was North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat who was elected in 2016 by a fraction of a point in a race rife with allegations of voter fraud on his behalf. He vetoed a bill to require life-preserving medical treatment for babies born alive after a failed abortion. The issue has become particularly prevalent after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s comments that a baby born alive in that situation should be simply “kept

Born-Alive Legislation Advances in Texas and North Carolina

In the midst of the debate over legal rights for babies who survive abortion attempts, two states have stepped forward in an effort to secure rights for these children: Texas and North Carolina. In Texas, the State House of Representatives passed House Bill 16, which relates to the enforcement of rights for a “living unborn child after an abortion,” by a vote of 93-1. If enacted, this legislation would mandate medical treatment for the surviving child. Doctors who fail to provide “the appropriate medical treatment” will face a third-degree felony charge coupled with a fine of at least $100,000. While

LGBT Activists Spending Big to Elect Transgender Candidate in Virginia

It’s becoming a go-to strategy for the LGBT lobby: Step 1: Identify a candidate (likely a Republican) who stands “against LGBT people.” Step 2: Pour a ton of money into the race in favor of the LGBT-friendly (likely Democrat) candidate. Step 2a: Watch as the Republican Party establishment stays out of the election in order to avoid being called “anti-gay.” Step 3: Crush the conservative candidate with the power of a massive campaign fund and pretend it’s because of their “bigoted” views. This was exactly the playbook used, for example, in North Carolina, where Democrats and their moneyed allies dumped

LGBT Group Plans to Spend $26 Million in 2018 — And Conservatives Are AWOL

Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) unveiled a $26 million plan for the 2018 elections. Their new offensive will almost double their current political staff and will focus on the key swing states of Arizona, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Nevada. HRC’s goal, according to The Washington Post, is to “[r]eplicate what happened in North Carolina in Senate, House and governor’s races across the nation next year and make the LGBT vote one of the most forceful voting blocs in the progressive movement.” Replicating the Democrats’ playbook in North Carolina will be an extremely effective tactic for HRC, but only

NCAA Relents on North Carolina Threats, Infuriates Liberals

Following North Carolina’s decision last week to repeal HB2 — referred to in the media as the “bathroom bill” — through the passage of compromise legislation, the NCAA has announced that it will once again allow the state to host collegiate championship games. In a statement released yesterday, the NCAA explained its reasoning — and signaled some reluctancy in returning to the state: “While the new law meets the minimal NCAA requirements, the board remains concerned that some may perceive North Carolina’s moratorium against affording opportunities for communities to extend basic civil rights as a signal that discriminatory behavior is
