"Porn Literacy" Offered by Idaho Department of Health and Welfare

Last week, we briefly discussed the bombshell report alleging that Idaho schools are teaching "porn literacy" to children under the auspices of the "Reducing the Risk" sex-ed curriculum.

This week, soon-to-be State Senator Brian Lenney from Nampa (he has no General Election challengers) went through some of the allegations and illustrated how the media was "carrying water for the left" in denying the claims.

You may find it enlightening to see how the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (IDHW) has removed content and links from its website after the report exposed what it was doing.

Here is a link to Lenney's video on the subject.

The Idaho Department of Health & Welfare (IDHW) and the mainstream media can try to cover this up and distance themselves from this but the reality is that IDHW has been offering it as a resource for sex education, including in Idaho schools. I have included a link to the organization so you can see the curriculum.

In Idaho code, sex education is defined simply as "the study of anatomy and the physiology of human reproduction."

You decide for yourself whether this national curriculum comports with Idaho law.

Last week, I sent an inquiry to Gov. Brad Little regarding this issue and encouraging a discussion with the Governor's office, the health districts, and the Department of Health and Welfare to ensure that every Idaho child is protected.

The Governor's office has yet to respond.

Election Debates

Do Idahoans deserve to hear from the candidates in the state's major political race?

Once again, Gov. Brad Little has declined to participate in a gubernatorial debate. The Democrat candidate also declined to participate without the incumbent in the race. The Independent candidate, Ammon Bundy, stated in a recent article that he still wanted to debate. The Governor has been acting as if his opponents do not have legitimate campaigns, whereas we know that the other candidates have thousands of supporters across the state.

The only notable incumbent who has agreed to a debate is Sen. Mike Crapo, who has agreed to debate Democrat David Roth and independent candidate Scott Oh Cleveland.

Candidates for most of the state's major races without incumbents — Attorney General, Lt. Governor, and Superintendent of Public Instruction — are scheduled to have debates in October.

Biden's Migrants

Illegal immigration is in the national spotlight once again after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew around 50 Venezuelan migrants to Martha's Vineyard last week. DeSantis' actions have not been without controversy, but the left's response was widely viewed as hypocritical due to their rapid efforts to expel the migrants from their own backyard.

A report issued last month by a non-partisan, public interest organization estimated that nearly 4.9 million illegal immigrants have crossed our country's borders since Biden took office. The record number of illegal crossings in 2021 is expected to increase by more than 20% in 2022.

Our office has made inquiries regarding the scope of the problem here in Idaho, but we have been met with a disturbing lack of data on how many illegal immigrants are residing or receiving taxpayer-funded benefits in our state.

We will continue to investigate this matter.
