For far too long, the public education system had free reign in corrupting the shared values on which America had been founded. Patriots are finally pushing back.
First, Trump created the 1776 Project in response to the 1619 Project’s propaganda push. Biden scrapped it, and pulled down the page, but their work continues elsewhere.
The fight against CRT is seen in several states, including where De Santis is leading the charge in making sure it doesn’t gain a foothold in Florida schools.
Texas is not just playing defense, but it’s moving ahead to take back lost ground. They are making sure that tomorrow’s citizens will know about the foundations on which Texas was built. This is not a curriculum seeing the West (including Texas) through the jaded eyes of those who want to tear it down, but one that acknowledges the history and traditions that make Texas meaningfully different from 49 other states in the union.
The bill, HB 2497 (pdf), establishes the 1836 Project, an advisory committee designed to “promote patriotic education and increase awareness of the Texas values that continue to stimulate boundless prosperity across this state.”
“To keep Texas the best state in the nation, we can never forget WHY our state is so exceptional. I signed a law establishing the 1836 project, which promotes patriotic education & ensures future generations understand TX values. Together, we’ll keep our rich history alive,” the Republican governor said in a statement on Twitter shortly after signing the measure into law. –EpochTimes

The duties of the 1836 Project include:
Increasing awareness on the following topics:
Texas history, including the indigenous peoples of the state, the state’s Spanish and Mexican heritage, Tejanos, the Texas War for Independence, annexation of Texas by the U.S. and Juneteenth;
The founding documents and founders of the state
Advising the governor on the core principles of the founding of Texas and how those principles further enrich the lives of its residents
Facilitating the development and implementation of the Gubernatorial 1836 Award to recognize student knowledge of Texas Independence
Advising state agencies with regard to their efforts to ensure patriotic education was provided to the public at state parks, battlefields, monuments, museums, installations, landmarks, cemeteries and other places important to the Texas War for Independence and founding of the state
Facilitating, advising on and promoting other activities to support public knowledge of and patriotic education on the Texas War for Independence and founding of Texas.-KVUE
There is still much more to be done, but this is taking a solid first step in the right direction.
We’re looking forward to more initiatives like this one from sea to shining sea.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
