Yes, there are choices to be made in the election for the Iowa Senate. Here we have one that believes a baby is worth keeping alive and another that believes it is alright to kill the baby if one desires to do so https://fb.watch/fEJDOe3W_j/! Well, I know which one I would be voting for!!!
‘We have written before about Democrat State Sen. Sarah Trone Garriott. After redistricting, she was lumped in with Republican Senate President Jake Chapman.
Chapman has been a conservative stalwart in the Iowa Senate. He has stood for life, individual rights, free speech, self-defense and just about everything a conservative could want.
Trone Garriott, on the other hand, is championing pornography in schools and the legalized killing of unborn babies. And she’s doing so while constantly pointing out she is a “minister” in the ELCA.
‘Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds submitted an opinion piece to the Des Moines Register earlier this month. It was about the Register’s efforts to defend the Linn-Mar School District keeping secret gender plans from parents of students in grades 7-12.
The policy has been highly controversial. And Reynolds wanted to respond to the Register’s editorial in defense of the policy.
The Register’s opinion editor, someone we believe to be a biological male called Lucas Grundmeier, planned to publish it in last Sunday’s edition. With one “substantive change…”
“This sentence: Biological males will be allowed to share restrooms, locker rooms and sleeping quarters on overnight trips with girls.
“Became: Children assigned male at birth will be allowed to share restrooms, locker rooms and sleeping quarters on overnight trips with girls.
“I will not revert to the original, but if you’d prefer a different edit I will use it instead. Please let me know this afternoon.”
The Governor’s office asked Grundmeier if the statement “biological male” is factually incorrect. Keep in mind this is an opinion piece, meant to convey the opinion of the author.
This is disgusting. As a man who was born and reared in Iowa the following shows just how debased Iowa has become.

Boy, am I glad I am old. When I grew up in Iowa none of this Wokeness was around!
‘Parents Defending Education filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against the Linn-Mar Community School District on Aug. 2. Defendants also include the superintendent and members of the Linn-Mar School Board.
The lawsuit is a result of Linn-Mar’s policy of allowing students to create “gender support plans” without parental knowledge or consent.
The lawsuit says Linn-Mar is “flouting” constitutional guarantees that parents have a constitutional liberty interest in the care, custody and control of their children and that students do not abandon their First Amendment rights at the schoolhouse gate.
The policy allows school officials to work with students as young as seventh grade to create such plans for gender transition without parental involvement. It also forces peers to acknowledge preferred gender identities of classmates.
Per the lawsuit, the district can:
*require all employees and students to address the child by a new name; *require all employees and students to address the child by a new pronoun; *have the child’s name changed on numerous government documents, including identification cards, yearbooks and diplomas; *allow the child to use the restrooms, locker rooms and changing facilities that correspond with the child’s gender identity; *allow the child to participate in PE classes, intramural sports, clubs and other events that correspond with the child’s gender identity; *allow the child to room with other students who share the child’s gender identity.
“These actions can happen without any knowledge or input from the child’s parents,” the lawsuit states. “Instead, these decisions will be made solely by the child and ‘school administrators and/or school counselors.’”
I’m originally from southern Iowa and so glad ‘Republican Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds took a public stand in favor of the rights of parents during an interview with a local news reporter on Monday. She specifically defended the right of parents to decide on the appropriate subject matter in their children’s schools.
The interview centered on disputes around the nation regarding some of the books local school districts are placing in their school libraries. Some school library books contain explicit erotic material and have been challenged as inappropriate for school-age children. In Iowa, in particular, six local districts around Des Moines face these controversies.
During the interview, Gov. Reynolds read aloud from one of the books involved, “All Boys Aren’t Blue.” That book includes essays described as a “memoir-manifesto” about growing up gay and black.
She read a passage from the book for the reporter that described a graphic carnal act between two boy cousins. The passage used explicit language to describe boys in the nude having oral intercourse with each other. When she finished reading the passage, Reynolds said she didn’t know if Iowa parents feel that material is appropriate for children in K-12 education. Still, she feels that it is a decision that they should be able to make.
The reporter asked Reynolds if she agrees with Iowa’s Republican state Senate President Jake Chapman. The latter said teachers’ unions have a “sinister agenda” to normalize deviant behavior among school children. Reynolds said she “absolutely agrees” those inappropriate things are displayed in Iowa classrooms and libraries without explicitly commenting on Chapman’s statements.
Some schools around the country have been removing “All Boys Aren’t Blue” from libraries, although the author defends his book as having an “important message” for young boys and girls “struggling with their gender.” He said that removing a “resource” doesn’t mean “Black queer youth” will not experience what he describes.
