Common Core Stealing American History & Science

Deceit once again falls upon those behind the implementation of everything related to the Common Core Standards. Most recently released information about the new SAT test rules and the AP History and Science classes to be taught have some of this country’s highest ranking professors hair standing on end.

The fact the textbooks are already brushing over any American History prior to 1865 is disgusting enough. Ever since we learned about this I have said their objective in doing this is to “remove” our upcoming generation’s loyalty to this country. How can you have any loyalty to a country you know nothing about or what you are told is all negative in relationship to the founders and how and why things were carried out as they were.

David Coleman and Sue Pimental were the writers of the Common Core Standards for English Language (ELA). They are actually called “The Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History, Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects.” This covers everything except Math and the Common Core Math Standards takes care of that.

David Coleman 3David Coleman, the non-educator and the man Bill Gates (eugenist) found to use as the lead dummy in the push for the Common Core Standards is once again out there to take credit for not actually doing any work. No one is really clear as to what Coleman’s role was in the writing of the Standards since we know the actual lead writers were Sue Pimental (ELA) and Jason Zimba (Math). Coleman was on the team and seems to for some reason or other, to have been given the honor of being in name only “the architect” of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Having never taught a day of any type of education classes in his life, he has also taken a page from Obama’s book and never produced curriculum vitae for public viewing, but he does like to address the teaching of our children as if it is a very minor issue. While Bill Gates, Jeb Bush and their cronies continue to tell parents we need to give our children an education for the 21st century, they continue to give us trash curriculum and individuals who know nothing about education.

Jason ZimbaZimba to his fame, in 2008 co-authored a paper with David Coleman about standards for the Carnegie Commission.

Pimentel’s name to fame is in 2006 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011, Achieve paid Pimentel’s company, Sue Pimentel, Inc., Hanover, NH 03755, for “consulting.” Pimentel’s presence on the CCSS ELA committee and her close relationship with Achieve raise questions about the exact process for selecting work group members (and who did the selecting). Given that Achieve has an established set of “common benchmarks” for framing CCSS dating back to 2004, and given the presence of those “leading governors” on Achieve’s board, one can conclude that there was no objective (much less publicized) means of selecting CCSS work groups.Sue Pimentel 2

Pimentel is also the Vice-Chair and on the Executive Committee of the National Assessment Governing Board of which meets quarterly to make decisions including the subjects NAEP measures and the frameworks of assessments that students eventually take.

Anitere Flores(It might interest my Florida readers that Florida Senator Anitere Flores is also serving on this board. Flores seems to be popping up everywhere as she is the Chief Executive Officer/President of Doral College, a private university run by the state’s largest for-profit charter school management company, Academica Charter School Consortium (Rep. Fresen).  Senator Flores had initially stated in accepting the position at Doral she would not run for re-election in 2012, but I guess she changed her mind because she is still in both positions along with sitting on Jeb Bush’s foundation FEE.)

I see a great deal of manipulative cronyism going on.

Unfortunately it appears giving our children an education in the 21st century entail’s  using Hitler “outcome based education” to dumb them down and at the same time take away all true and correct History information regarding America and filling their heads with Global Warming lies through Science. All of this and the planning continue to be presented by men and women who have no idea what they are talking about except as “yes” men. Non Educator’s All!

Coleman, Ann-Margaret Michael (Coleman’s former assistant and current operations manager for Student Achievement Partners), and Jason Zimba were the founding board members of Michelle Rhee’s StudentsFirst, a lobbying advocacy organization for “standards driven” educational reform. Coleman’s tenure on the board of StudentsFirst ended when he joined the College Board in October 2012.

Michelle Rhee’s group after having caused the testing scandal in D.C. while she was serving as the superintendent of schools went on to support Jeb Bush and his push in the total endorsement of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) through Student’s First.

Student Achievement Partners was founded by Coleman’s friend’s Sue Pimentel (leader of the ELA team) and Jason Zimba (leader on the Mathematics writing team).

Don’t you just love these “touchy feely” names they give these organizations to make you think they are really smart and care about your children? StudentsFirst, Student Achievement Partners, and Step Up For Students. And the way they all circle around to being on all these boards together.

We already know that polls increasingly show that as more Americans learn about the Common Core standards, they don’t like what they see. Hopefully, Americans will feel the same way as they learn more about how the new Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History exam will decimate the teaching of traditional American history, turning it into a leftist view of an America that is based on identity politics rather than a Constitution meant to protect the rights of individual freedoms.

Conservative commentator Stanley Kurtz, a contributing editor for National Review Online, wrote about the secretive manner in which the AP U.S. History exam was rolled out as well as the significance of this new exam.

“We are witnessing a coordinated, two-pronged effort to effectively federalize all of American K-12 education, while shifting its content sharply to the left,” Kurtz states.

He explains that while the College Board under Coleman has put on a public display of a lengthy “framework” for the new AP U.S. History exam, that framework actually contains only a few sample questions.

“Sources tell me, however, that a complete sample exam has to be released, although only to certified AP U.S. History teachers,” Kurtz continues. “Those teachers have been warned, under penalty of law and the stripping of their AP teaching privileges, not to disclose the content of the new sample AP U.S. History exam to anyone.”

WHAT?  Why all the secrecy if everything pertaining to the CCS are so good and are going to create the world’s top 21st century technical guru’s. But then again, this is the same type of behavior we saw prior to the original release of the CCS with a blackout of all information relating to them.

Coleman’s major achievement of keeping Common Core from public and media scrutiny is extraordinary considering that the standards were developed by three private D.C. organizations: the National Governors Association (NGA), the Council for Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and progressive education company Achieve Inc. All three organizations were privately funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with your tax dollars and none of these groups are accountable to parents, teachers, students, or taxpayers in general.

In a March, 1997 article published by Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D. it states, “in March 1996 then N.C. Gov. Hunt and five other governors along with six CEO’s adopted a policy statement at the National Education Summit then calling for the states to establish internationally competitive standards, assessments tools and accountability systems within two years”. (Notice the presence of “leading governors” on the Achieve, Inc., board allows one to call Achieve a “state-led” organization and by the same token, one might also call Achieve a “business-led” organization since its board is also comprised of “business leaders.”)

It went on to say “the policy statement also indicated an entity called “Achieve” would be established to “measure and report each state’s annual progress in setting those standards.” Although the Standards would be “voluntary”, one of the CEO’s, IBM’s Lou Gerstner, Jr., said his company is the largest in North Carolina and companies could easily threaten not to open plants in states that didn’t comply”.

CORPORATE EXTORTION OVER EDUCATION STANDARDS? Well, we saw that come true in 2013 with the letter from CEO Tillison of ExxonMobil to the governor of PA Tom Corbett. Play our game or we’ll pull up our pants so to speak and leave your state. Goodbye!

In 2001, the Achieve board of directors included six governors and CEOs of six corporations. All six corporations were connected to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group now known for its model legislation in favor of the privatization of public education and its decision to reverse its anti-CCSS stance.

It certainly serves pro-CCSS purposes to conceal the “business-led” element of the governor-CEO, Achieve. Achieve is nothing more than a little ALEC and we certainly could have and should have called the CCSS “business-led”, but that would certainly not have been as effective as deceiving the populous with “state-led”.

In 2004 Achieve, Inc. created ADP, American Diploma Project which stated they had done two years of research to create the groundbreaking report entitled “Ready or Not:  Creating a High School Diploma That Counts. This is where benchmarking came from and with only 2 years of research but – ADP was formed and published this 2 years of research the same year.  ?????

PawlentyQuick note:  Be careful when seeing former Governor Pawlenty’s name up for President or VP – he has been knee deep into the NGA (2008 Chair), CCSS, Achieve and ADP from their inception. In 2006, Pawlenty made the statement “the era of small government is over… I’m a market person, but there are certain circumstances where you’ve got to have government put up the guardrails or bust up entrenched interests before they become too powerful …the government has to be more proactive and more aggressive.”

In 2008 then Gov. Pawlenty led the National Governors Symposium in N.C. with former N.C. Gov. Jim Hunt. The NGA produced that year:

  • High, rigorous standards are the foundation of a strong education system. Content standards specify the knowledge and skills that students need at each grade level. These standards must be supported by an aligned and clearly articulated system of curriculum, assessments, teacher preparation and professional development, textbook selection and appropriate supports for students.

And by the way, Pawlenty in 2008 was also the vice-chair of the Achieve board of directors and in 2009, he became co-chair. In 2009, Achieve received $20.9M from the Gates Foundation, $2M from the Carnegie Foundation, and a combined $2.6M from five ALEC corporations (GE, Prudential, Nationwide, Lumina, and State Farm). There are many questionable actions on this one’s part.

And if you know nothing about Jim Hunt, Jeb Bush’s new best friend, go here and scroll down to “Truth About Former Governor Jim Hunt.

There is still no official information about who selected the individuals to write the Common Core standards. None of the writers of the Math and English Language Arts standards have ever taught Math, English, or Reading at the K-12 level. In addition, the Standards Development Work Groups did not include any members who were high school English and mathematics teachers, English professors, scientists, engineers, parents, state legislators, early childhood educators, and state or local school board members.

“This is clearly an effort to silence public debate over these heavily politicized and illegitimately nationalized standards,” writes Kurtz. “If the complete sample test was available, the political nature of the new test would become evident. Public scrutiny of the sample test would also expose potential conflicts between the new exam and existing state standards.”

Another deception observed by Kurtz is the College Board’s claim that the highly controlled new framework for AP U.S. History can be adapted according to the preferences of individual states, school districts, and teachers. Of course, if they want their students to pass the Common Core-aligned tests, their best bet is to choose Common Core-aligned textbooks and lesson plans, which mean content will be coming from those.

As I have mentioned previously, even Charter schools are Common Core aligned. Charter schools supported by Hillsdale College and Great Heart Charter Management will tell you they are providing your child with a Classical education. Now how can that be since the curriculum and textbooks they are using are Common Core aligned?

You just cannot have it both ways. Seems everyone has gotten adapt to “double-speak”.

While it is true that the new AP framework allows teachers to include their own examples, the framework “also insists that the examples must be used to illustrate the themes and concepts behind the official College Board vision.” Now we are back to square one.

Kurtz observes:

Geo Washington 1The upshot is that James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and the other founders are largely left out of the new test, unless they are presented as examples of conflict and identity by class, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. The Constitution can be studied as an example of the Colonists’ belief in the superiority of their own culture, for instance. But any teacher who presents a full unit on the principles of the American Constitution taught in the traditional way would be severely disadvantaging his students. So while allowing some minor flexibility on details, the new AP U.S. History framework effectively forces teachers to train their students in a leftist, blame-America-first reading of history, while omitting traditional treatments of our founding principles.

In regard to the Science Standards, John Casey, former White House space program advisor, consultant to NASA Headquarters, and space shuttle engineer has written an article “Teaching Our Children Bad Science” and gives five negatives to the CCS Science:

  • These areas for teaching our children are so deeply flawed as to raise concerns about how other sections in the proposed curriculum standards were developed.
  • Use of Invalid and Disproved Science
  • Standards Are Based on False Assertions of Mankind’s Impact on Climate Change
  • Specific Standards Sections on Climate Should Be Removed Completely
  • These Climate Standards Do Not Reflect the Most Important Factors in Climate Change

At the end of 2013, Citizens for Objective Public Education, Inc. (COPE) filed suit in federal court against the Kansas State Board of Education and the Kansas State Department of Education to enjoin implementation of science standards designed for all students in the US.

The Complaint alleges that the Kansas Board’s adoption on June 11, 2013, of A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (the F&S) “will have the effect of causing Kansas public schools to establish and endorse a non-theistic religious worldview” in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Rather than objectively informing children about these questions in an age-appropriate manner, the Science Standards lead them “to answer the questions with only materialistic/atheistic answers.”

This indoctrination is driven by the use of a concealed Orthodoxy (or doctrine) called methodological naturalism or scientific materialism.  The Orthodoxy requires that explanations of the cause and nature of natural phenomena may only use natural, material or mechanistic causes, and must assume that teleological or design conceptions of nature are invalid.

Gaia 3Just the very fact that ever since our children began being filled full of “Global Warming” a common practice has been to refer to nature as Mother Earth or Gaia. If you remember two years ago Earth Day was changed to Mother Earth Day – they are teaching our young children to worship the earth and that the earth and animals are more important than humans. Brainwashing!

The Gaia hypothesis, named after the Greek goddess Gaia is also known as the Gaia theory or Gaia principle, which proposes that organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a self-regulating, complex system that contributes to maintaining the conditions for life on the planet. Topics of interest include how the biosphere and the evolution of life forms affect the stability of global temperature, ocean salinity, oxygen in the atmosphere and other environmental variables that affect the habitability of Earth.

Gaian’s of which they call themselves have infiltrated every level of power within the  United Nations. This is part of the UN’s Sustainable Development planned teaching –   “The goal aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to “dominate and exploit” —” The direct opposite of what the Bible  teaches, namely, that man is to dominate the earth and all creatures on it.

If you go to this link you will see Gaia is depicted all the way from a monstrous woman covered in greenery, to a sexy woman laying in the forest, to a medieval goddess floating on air to a pregnant women showing the earth in her womb – let your imagination fly when you are depicting lies.

Absolutely nothing about the Common Core Standards, College Board, NGA, CCSO, Achieve, United Nations, Bill Gates, Jeb Bush, Bill Clinton, Al Gore and all their cronies is good for our children.

And don’t forget the changes to the SAT’s! The College Board has chosen to release information in a less than straightforward manner, as usual. David Coleman has learned well how to “double-speak” information especially when it pertains to our children. The “sleight of hand” statements are carefully stated using those politically correct words, but there does exist a document entitled, “Specifications for the Redesigned SAT.” I guess we will just have to wait until March 2015 for all the gory details. To understand some of the things going on with the SAT’s you can go here.

Two last things – always remember the actual motives behind the implementation of Charter schools – they carry a large share of lies and scandals themselves.

And lastly maybe this should be a requirement for all state and local school board members BEFORE they are elected to office – make them have to take whatever tests are presented in their states that the children have to take whether they are from PAARC, SBAC or AIR and publish their scores. I bet over 90% of them would fail.

It might interest the reader’s to know that almost every person noted here or serving on these Corporations/Foundations/Association’s not only support the Common Core but they highly support Charter schools and Vouchers. Have you heard or understood a word I have said to you about the meaning behind those two?  There are coming after your children!

The Rest Of the Story!

Conveniently Forgotten Facts.

Back in 1969 a group of Black Panthers decided that a fellow black panther named Alex Rackley needed to die. Rackley was suspected of disloyalty. Rackley was first tied to a chair. Once safely immobilized, his friends tortured him for hours by, among other things, pouring boiling water on him.

When they got tired of torturing Rackley, Black Panther member, Warren Kimbro took Rackley outside and put a bullet in his head. Rackley’s body was later found floating in a river about 25 miles north of New Haven, Connecticut.

Perhaps at this point you’re curious as to what happened to these Black Panthers?

KimbroIn 1977, that’s only eight years later, only one of the killers was still in jail. The shooter, Warren Kimbro, managed to get a scholarship to Harvard and became good friends with none other than Al Gore. He later became an assistant dean at an Eastern Connecticut State College. Isn’t that something!!!

As a ’60s radical you can pump a bullet into someone’s head and a few years later, in the same state, you can become an assistant college dean!

Only in America !!!

Erica Huggins was the woman who served the Panthers by boiling the water for Mr. Rackley’s torture… Some years later, Ms. Huggins was elected to a California School Board.

How in the world do you think these killers got off so easily?

Maybe it was in some part due to the efforts of two people who came to the defense of the Panthers.
These two people actually went so far as to shut down Yale University with demonstrations in defense of the accused Black Panthers during their trial.

Bill and HillaryOne of these people was none other than Bill Lan Lee. Mr. Lee, (or Mr. Lan Lee, as the case may be,) isn’t a college dean. He isn’t a member of a California School Board. He is now head of the United States Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, appointed by none other than Bill Clinton.

O.K., so who was the other Panther defender? Is this other notable Panther defender now a school board member? Is this other Panther apologist now an assistant college dean? No, neither!

The other Panther defender was, like Lee, a radical law student at Yale University at the time. She is now known as The “smartest woman in the world.” She is none other than the former Secretary of State and former Democratic senator from the State of New York —- the former First Lady, the incredible Hillary Rodham Clinton .Hiliary

And now, as Paul Harvey would say; “You know the rest of the story”. And of course we know what Hillary’s response would be – “What difference does it make?” I wonder what this nasty woman would think if it were her child?

Pass this on! This deserves the widest possible press.

Also remember it when she runs for President!

HOW DEEP HAVE WE FALLEN INTO THE WORMHOLE?

ArchieIt was bound to happen! Witchcraft, Occult, Homosexuality – it’s been in the movies and TV for our kids watch, games they play – it was bound to show up in the comic books – of which our “before sex”, really young kids would be reading.

The adventures of redheaded Archie and his friends Veronica, Betty and Jughead were wholesome, kid-friendly family fun. It all began in 1941. 75 years ago – what a wonderful legacy.

But the world is about to take another turn into the depths of hell feeding our children only the darker side of life. On July 16, 2014 everything changed.

In the words of progressive Archie comic publisher and CEO, Jon Goldwater, (son of the original owner John L. Goldwater) “A new Riverdale is born!”

Can you believe it was this man’s father who in the mid-1950s was a key proponent and custodian of the comic book censorship guidelines known as the Comics Code Authority?

Since the same type of transition has gone on throughout the Disney World Empire, maybe Walt and John L. can send us some message on how to reverse this evil.

Suffice it to say, our freckled-face friend Archie is fatally shot saving the life of his homosexual buddy, Kevin, who is now part of the gang. Kevin enjoys his gay marriage and serving as a senator, solidly pushes gun-control and modeling diversity for all the young readers.

Archie Comics is also offering it’s youthful and impressionable audience a hard-core horror series, “Afterlife with Archie” plus the chilling adventures of “Sabrina” the teenage witch.

This 16-year-old role model for young daughters is born of a warlock. Her aunt Salem is a witch that turns into a talking cat and she is the villain and there is a Witches Council and abundant curses for all to enjoy.

The writer of this series, Roberto Aguirre–Sacasa, describes the comic as a “story about witches and witchcraft, demonology and occultism”. He is an American playwright, screenwriter, and comic book writer best known for his work for Marvel Comics. And Gay! Normally that wouldn’t matter but he is pushing his lifestyle on the very young as acceptable which is what the LGBT crowd does. All of his works are focusing around the gay/ occult/satism lifestyle.

On April 4, 2003, Dad’s Garage Theatre Company in Atlanta was scheduled to debut Aguirre-Sacasa’s new play, Archie’s Weird Fantasy, which depicted Riverdale’s most famous resident coming out of the closet and moving to New York. The day before the play was scheduled to open; Archie Comics issued a cease and desist order, threatening litigation if the play proceeded as written. Dad’s Garage artistic director Sean Daniels said, “The play was to depict Archie and his pals from Riverdale growing up, coming out and facing censorship. Archie Comics thought if Archie was portrayed as being gay that would dilute and tarnish his image.” It opened a few days later as “Weird Comic Book Fantasy” with the character names changed.

He boasts, “I am really good at making things dark and ominous.”

Aguirre-Sacasa admitted he was gay in a conversation regarding his 2006 semi-autobiographical “Based On A Totally True Story” (about a comic-book writer/playwright struggling with new-found success and boyfriend problems) was staged at the prestigious Manhattan Theatre Club in New York. When asked by The Advocate, “Which came first, being a comic-book geek or being gay?” he answered, “I would say I was probably a comic-book geek before I knew anything about being gay or straight. I certainly loved superheroes before I knew I was gay” He also noted the play was, “thankfully”, not about his current boyfriend.

“Once you get that big story up and running you could tell a lot more little stories. Veronica, for example, sets her eyes on Finn immediately, but Veronica Lodge’s social status is at the bottom of the food chain,” Aguirre-Sacasa said, adding that ultimately she and Kurt become best friends.

“And back in Riverdale, when Josie and Pussycats realize that Mercedes Jones has the greatest voice ever, they set out to recruit her for the band,” he said. Kevin Keller, Archie’s first openly gay character, meets Blaine, who’s been “zapped in Riverdale and Kevin is immediately intrigued by this new bow-tie wearing student”.

Then of course, there’s Sue Sylvester, the fast-talking sardonic queen of mean. She’ll square off against Jughead, Aguirre-Sacasa said.

Aguirre–Sacasa’s new play which opened at the Rainbow Theater in February, 2014 called “Say You Love Satan” they say is a wickedly humorous play which revolves around a love affair between a man and a guy who turns out to be the Prince of Darkness.

So what prompted it – the friendship between Aguirre-Sacasa and Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater, who met at the New York Comic Con in 2011?  “The Archie brand is very versatile and we’re continuing to explore our limits every day,” Goldwater said of the latest crossover.

Given free rein to tell the story that uses the conventions of wormholes and time warps to place the characters in the different universes, Aguirre-Sacasa stated, “How perfectly these worlds mesh and how funny the comparisons are between the characters.

So I guess his gay lifestyle gives him license to convince our young children that his lifestyle is great, good and should be theirs – even before they know what sex is! This has been the growing objective of the progressive gay crowd for years – well at least since Obama came into office.

The new series features for the enjoyment of your children false gods, the undead, zombies, with posters of “Nosferatu:  A Symphony of Horror” a chilling and eerie adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” hanging on Jughead’s wall.

The Bible tells Christians that all occult practices are evil and condemned by God. Deut. 18:9 addresses it very plainly to include in verses 19 and 11 to mention   (fortunetelling), or a soothsayer, or an enchanter (magician), sorceress, or a charmer (hypnotist), spirit medium, or a clairvoyant or psychic, or a necromancer (medium who consults the dead) or a witch.

God continues to give us choices and chances; however we continue to ignore the teachings and warnings. The Communist’s laid out their plan in the Manifesto – we ignored it – too inflated with our own egos.

We have watched especially since 9-11 the nation falling apart literally through education, global warning lies, immorality and gross deceptions. Always believing our elected “works of me, myself and I” would never do anything to hurt the American people. Now we even have the far right evangelical false prophets eroding the very words of the Lord himself.

Still believe everything is ok as they continue to corrupt your children in any and every way imaginable?

By the way parents, Kevin Keller, Archie’s boyfriend is getting his own monthly series. “He’s going to be the class president. Even the most popular kids are not popular with everybody. There’s some adversity he’ll have to deal with.”

And if this isn’t AMAZING enough news, the character will also be featured as an adult in the alternative series Life With Archie, and will be apparently be married to another gent!

THE NORTH AMERICAN DREAM (NAU) – Theirs, Not Ours!

Americans continue to discover more and more players and schemes in bringing down America. Call it what you will – North American Union (NAU), North American Trade Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), New World Order (NWO), CETA, NASP, TPP or just simply TREASON and all of the previous listed are simply the road to a New World Order. There are still many Americans who need to learn about the back room deals which are linking them with chains to every aspect of their lives forever to be controlled to those who consider themselves the “holier than thou elite).

If you doubt my words, I suggest you read “After America Comes North America” with disgraced former General Petraeus boasting at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty in response to a question about what comes after the United States.

The “highly integrated” forces of Canada, the United States, and Mexico, Petraeus continued, will become the world’s powerhouse for energy and science. “There are four revolutions that are ongoing at various levels in each of the countries but foremost in the United States,”

Have you noticed they already have the EU in place – the fact that it isn’t doing so well should be taken into consideration also?

NAULast year Obama used his pen on one of the many UNCONSTITUTIONAL Executive Orders that seeks to “harmonize” U.S. economic regulations with the rest of the world. This new executive order is yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system.

Outside of Obama being a communist and a colonialist, he is a committed GLOBALIST. He firmly believes that more “global governance” (the elite don’t like to use the term “global government”) will make the world a much better place. His whole time in office, Obama has consistently sought to strengthen international institutions such as the UN, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. Since he was elected, Obama has signed a whole host of new international economic agreements. He regularly speaks of the need for “cooperation” among global religions and once stated, “all nations must come together to build a stronger global regime”.

North American Union 3xMost Americans have absolutely no idea how far plans to integrate the United States, Canada and Mexico have advanced. In 2011, Obama signed an agreement to create a “North American security perimeter” and most Americans never even heard about it because the mainstream news networks almost entirely ignored it

There has been a Mexican customs office built in Kansas City which is to be the SmartPort overseeing the rail transportation of goods from Asia to Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico at a cost of $3M to U.S. taxpayers. Shipments will be pre-screened in Southeast Asia, and the shipper will send advance notification to Mexican and American Customs with the corresponding ”pre-clearance” information on the cargo. Upon arrival in Mexico, containers will pass through multiple X-ray and gamma ray screenings, allowing any containers with anomalies to quickly be removed for further inspection. Do you trust Mexico?

The Mexican trucks will cross the border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new “SENTRI” system.

Container shipments will be tracked using intelligent transportation systems, or ITS, (RIF) that could include global positioning systems or radio frequency identification systems, and monitored on their way to inland trade-processing centers in Kansas City and elsewhere in the United States. The Kansas City SmartPort website boasts: ”Kansas City offers the opportunity for sealed cargo containers to travel from Mexican port cities with virtually no border delays and to return.

Longshoremen will not be employed at the port of Lazaro Cardenas, and, in Mexico, the employees of Kansas City Southern will not be United Transportation Union workers. To the extent that Mexican trucks become involved in the operation, it would mean Teamster Union drivers would not be employed in the operations. In fact, it will be taking a considerable amount of traffic from the west coast.

Kansas City SmartPort Inc. is an “investor based organization supported by the public and private sector” to create the key hub on the NAFTA Super Highway.

Still believe Wikileaks was wrong in spilling the beans? A document uncovered by Wikileaks shows that those involved in the effort to integrate the North America (NAU) believe that an “incremental” approach is best. Apparently they believe that small moves toward integration are less likely to alarm the general population. Keep them deaf, dumb and blind and they’ll never know what hit them!

Obama as America’s Russian trained lap dog, in February 2014 he attended the North American Leaders’ Summit Meeting at Tuloca, Mexico, which is the successor to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) that was launched by President George W. Bush. (The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America was written by the Hudson Institute (Christopher Sands) and the Univ. of Alberta (Greg Anderson).

Any doubt in your minds now that the BUSH dynasty is part and parcel involved in the New World Order? I don’t care what political party you think you support, if you want to retain your country as America, you best wake up!

The U.S. government has housed within the Department of Commerce (DOC) an “SPP office” that is dedicated to organizing the many working groups laboring within the executive branches of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to create the regulatory reality for the Security and Prosperity Partnership.

NAU Border MapIt is a process of technical negotiations on economic and security rules and regulations conducted by working-level counterparts in the governments of the United States, Canada and Mexico. It was launched in March 2005 at a summit hosted by President George W. Bush in Waco, Texas.)

Forces within the Democratic Party seeking to protect jobs held back Obama in his daylong meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. According to the LA Times, Obama and his two North American counterparts “made little progress in boosting their ambitious plans to ease borders and expand into new frontiers.”

The setback came as congressional Democrats representing the interests of big labor unions succeeded in blocking a Democratic-controlled Senate in cahoots’ with GOP congressional leaders seeking to serve multi-national business interests from granting the Obama administration fast-track authority to push through Congress without debate or amendments anything regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The TPP is a massive 12-nation global trade pact that which has been designed to supersede NAFTA. And let us not forget the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

They told us the TPP was for better security against potential terrorist attacks, but what it does is open the borders from the Yukon to Yucatan. Now you know why nothing has ever been done about securing the border between the U.S. and Mexico. You can’t have closed borders with the NAU.

The Comprehensive Economic & Trade Agreement (CETA) began in 2009 which is a free trade agreement between the EU and Canada and far more reaching than NAFTA.

Let us not forget for one minute that NAFTA has, since its inception, been one of the main tools being used to bring America to her knees. Carnegie’s Marc Tucker took care of matching training to needs with his Human Resources Development Plan for the United States, developed by the National Center for Education
and the Economy which was unveiled in 1992.

Whether you liked him or not Ross Perot made a statement in 1992 before NAFTA was even ratified, warning “You’re going to hear a giant sucking sound of jobs being pulled out of this country. Lower-cost Mexican workers will replace middle class America.”

NAFTA proponents promised tens of thousands of newly created jobs. Small farmers would export their way to wealth. Mexican living standards would rise. Economic opportunities would reduce regional immigration to America. All the promises made never materialized. Reality disproved hype. It does it every time. Ideologues praising NAFTA were exposed. They’re all frauds. They’re discredited liars. However they are doing it again selling the similar Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) snake oil. It’s NAFTA on steroids.

Where was Governor Perry? They used eminent domain to steal property to build this massive 10 lane highway (5 lanes each direction). Cheap South American, Chinese and Mexican merchandise will come from the open ports on the Pacific coast of Mexico in loaded trailers. Each trailer will have a pre-authorized radio chip in it giving that trailer prior authority to drive all the way to the Yukon if it chooses with absolutely no inspection of the cargo. Goods, drugs, illegals, human trafficking – you name it – there will be no border checks. The widening of the Panama Canal is all a part of this deal.

David Rockefeller and the labor wing of the Republican Party – “globalists” are behind this. The push here will be Mexican jobs – not American jobs. This is not to bring jobs to America – it is to destroy the Middle Class and at the same time infuse this country with illegals and drugs. The far left of the Democratic Party are against the TPP because of the effects it will have on the workers and thus fewer funds for the unions.

In the 1993 Annual report of the Heritage Foundation celebrating their 20th year celebration, the following was revealed: The idea of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) originated with Heritage Fellow Richard Allen and has long been advocated by Heritage policy analysts. The idea of creating a North American free trade zone from the Yukon to the Yucatan was first proposed by Heritage Distinguished Fellow Richard Allen in the late 1970s, refined by then Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, and further developed in a major 1986 Heritage Foundation study.

The power elite simply ordered their puppets in the White House and Congress to approve NAFTA and GATT even though an overwhelming majority of Americans opposed both. Then through globalization, they sent manufacturing jobs overseas, outsourced high-tech jobs, and imported guest workers to perform lower-skilled jobs. Once again, wallets over the American people.

In 2011, Obama made a “stand alone deal” (himself with the pen) with President Felipe Calderon, president of Mexico, to allow Mexican trucks to carry their loads onto U.S. highways and roads bypassing Congress as usual, and defying the wishes of the American people which looked like the action of a Third World dictator who thinks representative government is a nuisance and can be ignored. Congress made its wishes emphatically clear in 2007 when it voted to continue our ban on Mexican trucks: the House roll-call vote was 411 to 3 and the Senate was 75 to 23.

But what difference does that vote make with OPEN BORDERS? It’s like an American Red Dawn!

But where is Congress? I guess they think if they hold Obama accountable for his unconstitutional actions it will give others the ability to do the same!

This deal as with NAFTA is a job killer for Americans and certainly a direct hit on U.S. truck drivers because it helps big-business interests cut their costs by hiring cheaper Mexican drivers. It is also an attack on small business (i.e., the owner-operated and independent truck drivers) which constitutes the big majority of U.S. trucks.

Affecting the areas of transportation, education, immigration, law enforcement, regulations, banking, and agriculture, military and manufacturing, is there anything left? Tell me again the differences between the Republican and Democratic politicians. They all have their games, each side taking turns controlling our every walk of life with the end of the game – controlling the world collectively.

One last thing! The “Amero”! This is what the new currency is supposed to be if and when the NAU is ever finalized. If America adopts a single currency such as the “Amero” with Canada and Mexico, America would no longer control their own monetary policy.

The proposed governing structure of the NAU would be composed of a panel of 15 appointees, with 5 representing each of the three countries. This would give Mexico’s population of 108 million, and Canada’s population of 33 million an equal voice in the decisions made by over 300 million citizens of the United States. Critics claim a “North American Union” would be a paramount threat to our nation’s sovereignty, as it would subordinate both federal and state governmental authority to the control of one super-national authority. Gone would be all of the democratic underpinnings of our republic, replaced with a ruling oligarchy of appointed bureaucrats. The Constitution would no longer be the supreme law of the land; the decisions of government elites would now hold that honor.

There is hope. Go to the John Birch Society web site and utilize their anti-NAU and anti-NAFTA campaign tools and resources. Rep. Virgil Goode R-VA introduced H.C.R.40 in January 2007 in Congress to block the American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada. Unfortunately it died in Committee.

The Government Is Teaching Our Children It Is OK to Lie!

I believe the government has always lied to the American people – it is just that it has grown to be the normal. We as a people, cannot believe anything they say or do to be as it appears or is said – yet we are trying to raise our children to be respectful, not to lie, cheat or steal and their own government is giving them terrible examples of how to live.

Our own elected officials are aiding and abetting our enemies not only here in America but around the world. Do we have any doubt that they are using whatever means possible to bring this country to her knees using our people and resources to do so?

HiliaryAnd Mrs. Clinton, “what does it matter”? It matters to the families of those American soldiers you have worked against in your clandestine operations to put leaders of other countries out and replace them with what – others who are friendly to your deceit and dishonor.

Yes, there are dumb Americans who will vote for this woman just because she is a woman or just because she is a Democrat – but what if those who died were your children, brother or sister? Or is your slogan also “what does it matter”?

Hillary’s Operation Fast and Furious: al Qaeda edition

Taliban gun runners

Most everyone is familiar with the infamous Operation Fast and Furious wherein the boneheaded Obama Justice Department decided along with the equally boneheaded Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives that letting people buy weapons illegally and transfer them to Mexican narco-cartels was just a jim-dandy way of generating public outrage at gun ownership.

Now we’re seeing another phase of this come to light. The guns run to arm al Qaeda in Libya for the purpose of overthrowing Muammar Gadhafi and burnishing Obama and Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy credential have shown up in Afghanistan.

In today’s New York Post, carelessly distributed US weapons are linked to the loss of US aircraft in Afghanistan:

• The Obama administration isn’t only giving the Taliban back its commanders — it’s giving them weapons.

• Miltiary records and sources reveal that on July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province successfully targeted a US Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile.

• Lodged in the right nacelle, they found one fragment that contained an entire serial number.

• The investigation took time. Arms were twisted, noses put out of joint. But when the results came back, they were stunning: The Stinger tracked back to a lot that had been signed out by the CIA recently, not during the anti-Soviet ­jihad.

• My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.

• They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

No one should be surprised by the criminal cluelessness of the Obama regime.

At the time the weapons were transferred, Obama and Hillary were seeking to redefine US intervention from expensive leadership (like Iraq) to war-on-the-cheap. The idea being that a handful of fairly low risk airstrikes or drone missile attacks, in concert with a local resistance, could topple a hostile regime, where mere diplomacy could not. Of course, the local resistance would be so grateful for the aid that they would swear off beheadings and jihad and become Jeffersonian democrats. The so-called Arab Spring became a proving ground for this irresponsible doctrine.

However, in the case of Libya it was obvious very early that our local resistance was, in fact, an offshoot of al Qaeda.

That Stinger missiles were supplied to al-Qaeda via the government of Qatar (which, by the way, has accepted custody of the five Taliban leaders released by the Obama regime) is very well established.

When the US consulate at Benghazi was sacked, we know that our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, was leading an effort to round up the stray Stinger missiles and Glen Doherty, also killed in that attack, was part of the field team.

The blowback from this ill-conceived policy continues. Not only are those Stinger missiles on the loose in Africa and the Middle East, Libya is now a major al-Qaeda safe haven and source for jihadi fighters seeking to turn Syria into yet another al-Qaeda stronghold:

• In August 2013, Israel National News reported on Ansar al Sharia training camps in Libya that were actively training and exporting fighters for the jihad in Syria. Evidence indicated that the Libyan training camps were in operation as early as April 2012, months before Ansar al Sharia’s deadly attack on the US mission in Benghazi, and that they involved coordination with Tunisian facilitators who assisted in preparing the jihadists to fight in Syria.

• Hundreds, if not thousands, of Libyan fighters are thought to have traveled to Syria to fight with rebel groups. Many of these Libyans are believed to be fighting with the ISIS or the Al Nusrah Front. Abd al Mahdi al Harati, a deputy of Abdul Hakim Belhaj, the former emir of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, led 6,000 fighters in a brigade known as Liwa al Ummah for six months in 2012. The unit was comprised primarily of Syrian fighters, but included a large contingent of Libyans, Sudanese, Palestinians, Egyptians, and Arabs.

GowdyWhen Mr. Gowdy’s Benghazi committee convenes, he should use it as an opportunity to explore how our policy in Libya has led to widespread destabilization in Africa.

And while he is at it, Mr. Gowdy might try to find some like-minded politicians who are actually Patriots rather than politicians and work at taking our government back, get rid of the money mongering lobbyist’s and work at bringing America back to where she used to be.

This country is ripe with treasonous individuals who seem to think their way is better and have worked diligently to try and convince us they know what is best for us and our families. However, if their way is lying, cheating and deceit, most of us want nothing to do with it. They have allowed this country to become a hell hole of immorality, lack of respect for themselves and others and stripped us of decent values all in the name of their wallets.

America RoadmapThey don’t give one flying flip about you, me, or our children – they are too busy trying to remember all their lies and deceptions. Teaching our children it is perfectly alright to lie, steal and even commit murder if you can come up with the right excuse, is unforgiving in my book. Add to that the “deliberate dumbing down” of our children through their deceitful education plan – you now have the road map to America’s future and destruction.

And by the way, I thought our elected officials were supposed to do and legislate as we wished – not as they “thought” was best for them!

Think long and hard America when you go to the poles in November, 2014 and 2016.

The People’s Voice – A Commentary

freedom-of-speechThe People’s Voice is a national group that operates with no government, political, corporate or religious affiliations or influence. We are Free Americans. We are not Republicans, Democrats, Independents or any other of these endless parties which claim to represent our best interests. We are mainly American Veterans from WWII to the present. There are many of us. The only special group we belong to is America. The doctrines which give us our rights and our orders are The United States Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and few others. These documents do not belong to our elected government; they belong to the People of the United States.

Our out of control government is shredding every concept of what America is all about. They are funded primarily by corporations who have their own private interests on the national level and, of course, abroad, which are not the interests of the American People. Enron and WorldCom are primary examples of the damage and these are the ones we know about. What about the others? The law’s the government has passed recently against these corporate crimes is not putting any American back to work or food on their tables. These types of activities put our entire nation in harm’s way and the entire world sees this.

13th AmendmentOur politicians have violated the ‘original Thirteenth Amendment of the Constitution’ wherein that no lawyer shall hold any political office within our national government (and they know this). One cannot serve two masters.

They have permitted the pride of the American People to be exported into other nations – taking away our industry and our jobs. This makes it absolutely impossible to pursue the American Dream of Life, Liberty, Freedom and Peace. We can’t afford this. Literally 100’s of thousands of jobs have been lost with pension funds and health care being sucked down the drain into oblivion.

Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, They Can Exercise Their Constitutional Right of Amending it, or Their Revolutionary Right to dismember or overthrow it.” President of the United States – Abraham Lincoln

We are trying very hard to bring every American the much needed information about when, where and how our country has been sold out from beneath our feet, in front of our very eyes. How it is being destroyed by a secret government that is operating inside of our elected one before it’s too late.

We are dedicated to informing America that even our elected government has sold us out to corporate interests, special interest groups, the United Nations, NATO and other foreign interests.

What are the requirements to be an American? You must read, understand and apply in your daily life the contents of our Doctrines, as listed above. You must defend these documents against all enemies – foreign and domestic. You must not be afraid to stand and meet the call for defending your rights, and the rights of others, as protected by these documents. What does all of this mean? It means you need to read these documents. Learn them, know them, live by them, defend them. That’s what it means and it’s that simple. If you do not know what is in these documents or have never read them you will find links to them right here on this site. Therefore, your first assignment, or duty, is to read them…so get with it.
“OUR EXPERIENCE
WILL BE
YOUR SURVIVAL”

There are responsibilities that come with Freedom.

Taking for granted certain liberties and freedoms without understanding what must accompany them and in order to benefit from them is pure ignorance. How can you allow yourself to believe that you have these rights, in any degree, if you do not know what any of them are?

You may have been born in America, but, what does that really mean?

What is America? Why is America?

You just can’t live in this country, call yourself an American and expect everything to be alright without taking Rockwell, Freedom of Worship 1943.jpgpersonal responsibility to insure that this will always be the America you desire.

It takes work, constantly. It takes participation, actively.

It means keeping a watchdog’s eyes to monitor it on a 24/7 schedule; as individuals and not as some trumped-up government propaganda machine as the Homeland Security Act suggests, or the American Freedom Corps. Stay away from these groups. They are designed to manipulate a free people into believing that they will fix our problems when in fact they are citizens vs. citizen’s spy-networks. Wake up!

When Americans are met with the challenge to question the activities of our government elect then they should get in their face if need be to make sure they are doing the job they were elected/hired to do. When things go astray then ask yourself what you did to prevent it. Now, what are you going to do to correct it?

If Americans allow themselves to believe that if they just sit in the comforts of their home, go to church regularly, or not, shuffle their kids off to school or home school, go to work, pay their taxes and keep their mouths shut then everything will be alright because you had nothing to do with it.

That’s right! You had NOTHING to do with it.

Don’t just sit there and assume that everything is alright. Apathy is the path to slavery, slavery is the body of bondage and bondage is the path to revolution.

american-handsMany Americans do not realize how chained and manipulated they truly are. They are not aware that what they have was at the expense of someone else’s blood.

Remember, a prisoner’s chains are heavier than a soldier’s pack.

Revolution is a tool to break those chains.

Revolution is not a bad thing, it is, however, an unfortunate turn of events, but, it is also the very device that allowed America to become one of the world’s greatest nations in the archives of history. It was the driving force to construct our very constitution. Revolution built this country!

If you believe that revolution is a bad thing for America then you haven’t studied your history very well. We are dedicated to maintaining America’s greatness for all Americans.

Lies, Deception and Cover-up! So What’s New? VA versus USPS!

Of course, some people lie just to lie, get attention or to cover up their actions. It seems to be the popular way of communicating these days with our elected politicians, especially those who have made a living by living in D.C.

Bernie SandersBernie Sanders, in case any of the readers are not aware, is our sole openly admitting Socialist elected to Congress. Some hide within the Democratic Party, Bernie just votes with them. Others certainly think and act like Socialists.

Recently Bernie chided the Koch Bros. and others for speaking against the Veterans Administration (VA) regarding their lack of “good” care of our military, active and retired.

Let me be clear here – I am not a fan or supporter of the Koch Bros. – they play manipulation games with their money just like the rest of the liars, but in this case they are telling the truth.

Americans have heard stories for years about the miserable care given to our returning soldiers and those retired that were promised good care for their service for protecting the citizens of this country.

Anyone remember the movie “Born On the Fourth of July?” At the time it was reported the movie was very factual and if you had a heart and soul, upon leaving the movie theater you were crying at the disrespect and humiliation portrayed upon our soldiers.

I for one said, “they will never get my son, he can do more for America right here”. I believe that is more true today than when the movie was made.

Sanders in all his glory linked the VA with a number of other “popular” federal bureaucracies stating, “The point is, you have government entities themselves — Social Security, enormously popular, “Medicare, enormously popular, Postal service (USPS), popular and the VA, popular.”

He forgot Medicaid!

Because they are popular and used does not in any way mean they are being operated effectively (we know better) nor do they hold a candle to the care that should be given to our soldiers – especially when compared to an entity like the post office.

I always find it interesting that the American people have more information and historical facts in their brains than those puppets who are supposed to be serving them.

Let’s compare two of these agencies – the USPS and the Veterans Administration.

Knowing full well any Federal Agency is rocked with deceit, the Post Office is no different with its politically appointed, bipartisan board of governors which awards executives lucrative deferred compensation deals and incentive bonuses, year after years compensation increases come mostly in the form of pension plan earnings.

Anyone who has ever studied accounting knows bonus’ only are to come on the back side of profit. Not so for the USPS! They reported in 2012 a loss of over $16B for the year but still made sure Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe was treated handsomely.

Donahoe earned a base salary of $276,840, but even without a bonus or incentive payout, his overall compensation Donahoe USPScame to $512,093 in 2012, compared with $384,229 in 2011, according to regulatory filings. It should matter not to the readers the man has worked for the USPS for 37 years. His being given that kind of payout in the midst of such a huge loss should have caused outrage among Americans.

Not only the total compensation should bring up your blood pressure, but his retirement account grew by $186,536.

Additionally, two other executives — Ellis Burgoyne, chief information officer, and Mary Anne Gibbons, general counsel — also received hefty increases in their retirement plans. In fact, Mr. Burgoyne’s retirement plan grew by more than $270,000, bringing his total compensation to $510,505, slightly less than Mr. Donahoe‘s.

In addition, the Postal Service’s chief human resources officer, Anthony J. Vegilante, received $60,000 in retention bonuses for fiscal 2011 and 2012 on top of his $240,000 annual salary, filings show. Nonetheless, Mr. Vegilante’s overall compensation for 2012 dipped to $363,002, compared with $364,667 the previous year.

COO/Exe. VP Megan J. Brennan, earned a salary of $235,000 in 2011 plus her benefits. By the time we add these figures up and the payroll of more than 626,764 employees and approx. 211,654 vehicles, it is no wonder they are in the hole.

People question how the USPS could be losing so much money! It’s not all because of the internet and e-mail! The problem is – it is run like the rest of the federal government agencies which is in the sewer and top level compensations.

Now the ugly behind the VA! The VA is a little different but the bottom line is the same. There is a total lack of transparency and accountability to those who are paying the bills. In addition, with the VA it also includes the standard of care and needless deaths and damage.

Does Bernie Sanders not understand the important issue here and how the VA is different than the other government agencies he mentioned? Probably because he doesn’t believe in “love of country” and has never served his. Not well anyway!

We would have no use for the Veterans Administration if the United States was not always going to war under part of the ELITE’s directions as a means of population control and making money for themselves.

HELLO! We, the United States of America are NOT the gatekeepers of the world. We are having trouble taking care of our own country to think we have the right to interfere in the actions of other countries.

Isn’t that what the United Nations is in place for? Speak about another form of failure and deceit layered in lies!

There have been years of inaction and healthcare abuse through the VA. Now because of this evil war our men and women have been sent to fight in the Mid-East, we are seeing an enormous increase of loss of limbs, PTSD and suicide. A returning veteran having to wait even a month for care let alone a year or two should be addressed as a crime or at the very least malfeasance by the hierarchy.

Now the inept bureaucracy is coming to the surface as more and more of our elected officials are being contacted and held accountable for the lack of service to our men and women.

VARecently, healthcare abuse accusations of the VA have become widespread especially in Florida where the largest number of retired veterans reside. Florida’s Congressman Ron DeSantis (R), Senator Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott are asking for more veteran healthcare oversight in Florida. Gov. Scott has recently accused the VA of blocking state healthcare inspectors from its hospital facilities, while Republican congressional candidate, Jorge Bonilla, has called for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign.

House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (R-Fla.) has said he requested action at an April 9 hearing but that the department did not comply for eight days.

As with any government agency using taxpayer $$, there should be full transparency and accountability. Rubio has penned a letter to Shinseki, requesting that he “provide secret electronic wait list data for ALL Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMC) in Florida,” after reports surfaced stating that veterans have died while waiting for medical care.

According to the American Legion, The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center in Phoenix has been keeping a secret list of patients with long-delayed appointments, a practice which has been linked to the deaths of at least 40 veterans, in a 2013 CNN report.

American Legion National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger is sending this month a team of American Legion experts to Phoenix to give local veterans a chance to discuss the quality of their VA health care. The team, part of the Legion’s System Worth Saving Task Force, will also conduct a two-day site visit to the Phoenix medical center where they will interview administrators, medical staff and patients.

CNN interviewed retired VA doctor, Sam Foote, who worked at the facility for 24 years. Dr. Foote stated the Phoenix hospital also maintains a “sham” list that it shares with the VA Central Office, which falsely indicates Phoenix has been providing timely appointments for its patients.

VA ShinsekiOn May 1, 2014 it was revealed that CNN has attempted to make an appointment with Secretary Shinseki for the past 6 months and has received no effective responses from the VA Public Affairs officer Drew Brookie. Also on May 1, Secretary Shinseki revealed he was placing the director of the Phoenix VA Health Care System Sharon Helman and two others on administrative leave stating, “We believe it is important to allow an independent, objective review to proceed”.

A later report from the VA’s Office of the Medical Inspector said Fort Collins, Colo., medical center falsified appointment records to give the impression that staff doctors had seen patients within the department’s goal of 14 to 30 days.

Keep in mind, these reports surfacing are also addressing reports of it taking veterans years in some cases to collect benefits from the administration.

You would think that since Shinseki is a retired former 4 star Army General having served for 38 years he would have on his heart as #1 the care of our military. Last report given in 2010, Shinseki’s salary as the Secretary of Veterans Affairs was $199,700 per year plus health care and a building retirement fund. Any retired military person can guess what his military retirement monthly check is for 38 years of service.

Update from May 8, 2014, Shinseki is brushing aside calls for his resignation. The secretary said, quote, “I take every one of these incidents and allegations seriously, and we’re going to go and investigate.” NO SIR! They should never have gotten this far but for YOUR failure to properly oversea the department and individuals you were charged with protecting.

Maybe Shinseki feels as Obama stated in an NBC interview, that he shares a kinship with Mr. Shinseki, who like the president ‘supposedly’is a native of Hawaii.

This recent video report is extremely telling!

Will conditions within the VA hospitals change any for the better? Time will tell! We can pray, but the record since the Viet Nam War tells a different tale!
