School board members under fire for mocking parents who requested in-person learning

California school board

In a leaked video, California school board members were seen mocking parents who have requested that the school opens up for in-person learning.

“These board members needs to resign,” tweeted Mercedes Schlapp, former Trump aide and WH Director of Strategic Communications.

In the video, tweeted by @ReopenCASchools, school board members are heard saying, “they want their babysitters back.”

The video was recorded by a California parent who joined the online meeting.

“Are we alone?” another one asks. “B****, if you’re going to call me out, I’m going to f*** you up!” She says in response to a letter written from California parents to the school board.

A third board member also insinuates that parents want their kids in school so they can smoke during the day.

The board members then realize the online meeting is open to the public and quickly end the call.

A protest is scheduled for this weekend in response to the video and to encourage the Oakley, Ca school board to reopen for students.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
