A court has been asked to determine that a California school district is in contempt of court for refusing to reinstate several whistleblower teachers – which it has failed to do despite a court determination it was violating their constitutional rights.

The report comes from the Thomas More Society, which is fighting on behalf of the teachers.

The school involved is the Escondido Union School District and Rincon Middle School.

Officials there have refused to allow teachers Elizabeth Mirabelli and Lori Ann West to safely return to work.

It was six months ago they were placed on administrative leave and two months ago a federal court held that the district was violating their rights, the report said.

The American Freedom Law Center has decided to push state COVID mandates, those thought to violate the constitutional rights of residents, up to the Supreme Court.

The AFLC has filed a petition asking the court to overturn a decision by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The original case challenged Pennsylvania's COVID rules and dates back to 2020 already.

In it, four state residents objected to "the Orwellian contact tracing program and mandate to wear masks, claiming that these restrictions violate fundamental constitutional rights."

The petition explained, "The COVID-19 pandemic created a constitutional crisis. For years, American citizens, including Petitioners, were subject to constantly changing orders that imposed burdens on fundamental freedoms in a way that our nation has never experienced in its history. The cost of these burdens is incalculable. Unfortunately, many courts did nothing, abdicating their duty to say what the law is and allowing this assault on liberty to proceed largely unchecked."

It continued, "'Determination by the [government] of what constitutes proper exercise of police power is not final or conclusive but is subject to supervision by the courts.' However, this supervision is only effective if the courts are willing to exercise their authority to decide important constitutional questions. Unfortunately, the Courts’ justiciability doctrines (standing, ripeness, mootness) have become convenient excuses for lower courts to surrender their duty to say what the law is, particularly when dealing with the draconian and historic restrictions imposed during the recent pandemic."

The case was against the governor, the attorney general, and the secretary of health.

"After denying a request for a preliminary injunction, the district court dismissed the lawsuit, claiming that the plaintiffs lacked standing to challenge the contact tracing program (even though they were subject to its restrictions and harmed by them) and that their challenge to the mask mandate was moot as the Department of Health unilaterally rescinded the mandate in June 2021, which was eight months after the lawsuit was filed, the AFLC reported.

The petition continues, "While the fear engendered by war, pandemic, or some other crisis might lead politicians, their attorneys, and yes, even judges of the highest order, to assert that patent violations of the Constitution are acceptable (or beyond judicial scrutiny) because public safety interests demand an exception to our most fundamental liberties, history teaches that we will look back on these arguments as 'gravely wrong . . . overruled in the court of history . . . and . . . [having] no place in law under the Constitution.'"

A new report from The Washington Stands documents how a school official used explicit sex books – some of those that have created issues when officials allow them in school libraries – to be sworn in.

She explained it with, "The Bible doesn't hold significant meaning for me."

An American organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, once was named by the Department of Justice as a co-conspirator in Hamas' terrorism, in the Holy Land Foundation case.

Court filings said CAIR and its founders, although not indicted, were involved in the largest terror funding case in U.S. history. In it, prosecutors busted up NLF, which was a main fundraising arm of Hamas in America and reportedly had sent $12 million to the cause.

At the time, former Assistant U.S. Attorney James Jacks explained, "CAIR has been identified by the government as a participant in an ongoing and ultimately unlawful conspiracy to support a designated terrorist organization [Hamas] – a conspiracy from which CAIR never withdrew."

A federal judge agreed, stating. "The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR with Hamas."

So it is perhaps unsurprising that since Hamas terrorists invade Israel, butchering some 1,400 civilians on Oct. 7 and even now promising more violence to come, CAIR is on the stump, promoting Hamas and its agenda.

And to condemn Israel.

For example, in a statement this week, CAIR, claiming to be the nation's "largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization," blamed Israel, which has promised to destroy the Hamas killers and has released its military to do just that, is breaking "Palestinian cultural sites."

That means, CAIR claims, that Israel wants to entirely "eliminate Palestinian existence."

CAIR cites a "Heritage for Peace" report that says there has been damage to 100 cultural landmarks in Gaza, including the Great Omari Mosque, the Church of Saint Porphyrius and a 2,000-year-ol Roman cemetery.

A long list of states and advocacy organizations have coalesced to support a Washington state church that is fighting political demands that it pay for abortion coverage in its insurance policy.

A report from the ADF, which is working on the fight on behalf of the Seattle-area Cedar Park Church, said 18 states now have joined the court arguments on behalf of the church.

As have pro-life groups and religious liberty advocates.

It's all in opposition to the plan by the state of Washington to keep the abortion industry financially funded by demanding that all insurance policies cover abortion – and all policyholders pay for it.

As have pro-life groups and religious liberty advocates.

It's all in opposition to the plan by the state of Washington to keep the abortion industry financially funded by demanding that all insurance policies cover abortion – and all policyholders pay for it.

When the state, through its SB6219 law, forced churches to cover elective abortions in health insurance plans, the church's insurance carrier automatically added the coverage – and the costs.

The fight went to court, where a lower-level judge claimed the church is required to violate its constitutionally protected pro-life religious beliefs and fund the state's abortion mandate.

Now it's pending before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and multiple groups have filed friend-of-the-court briefs in support of the church's religious freedom.

"Cedar Park Church celebrates and protects life from conception to natural death; it’s unconscionable for the state to force any church to pay for abortions," explained ADF lawyer John Bursch. "The abortion coverage mandate requires Cedar Park to act contrary to its religious beliefs and violates its constitutionally protected freedoms.

"The U.S. Supreme Court established that the government cannot compel religious organizations to act in violation of their sincerely held faith convictions. As these other states and advocates affirm, Washington can’t trample on Cedar Park’s right to provide health care for its employees without compromising its faith," he continued.

The ADF reported, "In the multi-state brief led by South Carolina, the attorneys general argue that the district court was wrong to ignore the religious motivation behind Cedar Park’s mission."

James Dobson, the adviser to a long list of presidents, prolific author of dozens of Christian books, and the founder of the James Dobson Family Institute, has released a statement through his ministry delivering a blunt recommendation to those who have access to Joe Biden.

Teach him what Thanksgiving is.

The statement followed Biden's Thanksgiving address to the nation in which he ignored God completely, and said, "It is left to us to teach [children] that Thanksgiving is about being grateful to God.

"Sadly, someone needs to teach this fact to President Joe Biden, too. He issued a Thanksgiving proclamation that didn’t mention God at all. Instead, Biden suggested the day’s purpose was to thank America for our blessings. This is not true. The purpose is for America to honor and thank God. This is not a minor distinction," that statement explained.

"America, like all nations of the earth, will eventually end. But God will never 'end.' Interestingly, the only other administration to omit God from its Thanksgiving proclamations was the Obama/Biden administration.

"This year, this failure of the Biden administration to acknowledge God on Thanksgiving of all days is more than disappointing. Our whole constitutional Republic was built on the truth found in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, that our liberty is given to us by 'our Creator.' There is no doubt that our founders were referring to the God of the Bible. I don’t think the failure to thank God in Biden’s Thanksgiving Proclamation was accidental. I believe it reflects the growing secularization of America and the ongoing effort to rip America out of the rich soil of Judeo-Christian civilization."

Dobson has been called by secular publications the nation's "most influential evangelical leader," and he also founded the prominent Family Research Council in the 1980s.

He has written dozens of books that have sold millions of copies, including "Dare to Discipline," "The Strong-Willed Child," "Bringing Up Boys," "Bringing up Girls," "When God Doesn't Make Sense" and more.

Biden's holiday statement claimed the Pilgrims celebrated to honor the support and generosity of the Wampanoag people, George Washington celebrated en route to Valley Forge, and Abraham Lincoln honored "the blessings of our country."

He claimed America is a "truly good nation because we are a good people."

Biden cited, "firefighters, police officers, first responders" "doctors, nurses, scientists, public servants, union workers, and teachers."

He claimed, "May we all remember that we are the United States of America – there is nothing beyond our capacity if we do it together."

He was criticized, however, for that essential call for unity when his pro-DEI, pro-green, pro-transgender, and pro-abortion agenda points have divided the nation as no other president ever had.

It was President Donald Trump whose statement on the holiday thanked God.

He said Americans give thanks to "Almighty God" for "His many blessings including our families, our friends, our neighbors, and this extraordinary country that we all call home."

He said:

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving today. As we gather with our loved ones, we give thanks to Almighty God for His many blessings including our families, our friends, our neighbors and this extraordinary country that we all call home.

We also send our deep gratitude to all of the patriots serving our nation in uniform this Thanksgiving including members of the U.S. armed forces. the heroes of Border Patrol and law enforcement and ICE and everybody that works so hard to preserve our system and our country and working to defend our southern border and our police and first responders in communities all across America.

A non-governmental organization already is working to assemble the evidence of atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists against Israeli civilians in the organization's brutal assault on innocent bystanders on Oct. 7, with a trial for crimes against humanity – and probable executions – the expected outcome.

News reports about witnesses to atrocities already have confirmed the beheading of babies, the violent rape of victims, sometimes even after they are dead, and worse.

The report said Article 7 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court determines "murder, imprisonment, torture, rape and other forms of sexual violence, persecution against an identifiable group, enforced disappearance of persons, and other inhumane acts intentionally causing great suffering" are "crimes against humanity."

To start, a team led by ELNET-Israeli board member Sarah Feinberg has been joined by dozens of leading French intellectuals calling for the massacre of some 1,200-1,400 Israelis to be recognized as crimes against humanity.

They are asking for groups such as the Human Rights Council, the U.N., and others, to pass resolutions regarding Hamas' war crimes.

A report from Just the News outlined the evidence that already is being documented for what could end up being a Nuremberg trials-like prosecution of those who inflicted horrors on men, women, and children.

"Live-streamed decapitation attempts. Bodies of murder victims paraded like hunting trophies through Gaza. Rapes of children so violent it broke their pelvises. Sadistic torture worse than a Hollywood horror movie," the report explained.

"Maybe the most jarring thing," former Deputy National Security Advisor Victoria Coates told the "Just the News, No Noise" television show, "is that Hamas is not in any way trying to hide this. You know, they're not being furtive or in any way bashful about what they've done. They're proud of it."

For those who are all into the green ideology, the elimination of fossil fuels, the move to solar and wind power, and such, the message is that they better get ready for changes.

Big changes.

The Daily Mail, one of the largest news websites in the world, bluntly labeled those members of Gen Z – and others – who got all excited this week when a letter by terrorist Osama bin Laden outlining his anti-Semitism went viral, as "NEVER BIN DUMBER."

It was the text of a writing by bin Laden, who masterminded the 9/11 atrocities against America, that was posted by the Guardian, which took it down after the anti-America rants started appearing on TikTok.

Remember when all of those people in power across America, from Bill Gates to Anthony Fauci to school officials to leaders in Congress to mayors and governors, were demanding that Americans accept the experimental COVID-19 shots because they were perfectly safe?

It turns out that wasn't quite right.
