Republicans Are Now In Control – Not Conservatives!

The words of Republican and Conservative are not necessarily a bonding of thoughts, ideas, morals or values.

One represents a frame of mind, the way you want your children to grow up with respect for others and themselves with a strong set of morals and values to carry with them through their lives.

The other is merely the name of a Political party backed by liars and huge money sources. Don’t misunderstand me, I believe the Democrats as a party are also liars. It just so happens the Republicans just came back into full power and they will certainly not clean up their act for the likes of the American people. In addition, the Republicans did nothing for us in stopping Common Core.

We are being told we should trust that party but as a parent and grandparent I can’t do that. They lie – repeatedly. Example – this morning I was cleaning out some papers and I came across the list of the “supporters” listed on Jeb Bush’s web site for the support of the Common Core State Standards.

You know, the web site that is so hard to find. The URL is www.highercorestandards.org but the actual name of the web site is “Conservatives for Higher Education”.

All REPUBLICANS and I wouldn’t call any of them CONSERVATIVE because they support the CCSS. The only changes you will find in the list of supporters are the removal of the names of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.  Ghee, I wonder why?

Maybe it’s because they had the intelligence and backbone to stand-up to the forceful orders of a bunch of “cash cows” telling them how to think and speak. They obviously finally decided to take the time to read the standards, found them unacceptable, below previous standards and unfit for consumption by our children.

Maybe they even decided corporate heads were not qualified to decide what our children should learn – we did do very well before unions, government and cash cows got into education. After all children educated in the 40’s and 50’s put us on the moon!

Interestingly enough, one name still remains on that list. It’s the name of that Preacher who stood in front of his TV cameras in December 2013 and stated he no longer supported the standards and then shortly thereafter went and had lunch with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and gave them his worldly advice. You guessed it –

MIKE HUCKABEE!

HUckabee 5I’m not sure which direction some of the ministers in this country are headed, but this one openly lies to the whole country two nights in a row and then at lunch urges state education officials to get rid of the “Common Core” name because it has become “toxic.” However, it would appear he intends to support the standards given the instructions he gave to the CCSSO. “Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t retreat”. Ouch!

It would seen Mr. Huckabee has become toxic!

Some of our REPUBLICAN governors took Huckabee’s advice to heart:

  • Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has used an executive order to purge the name “Common Core” from the standards and refer to them, instead, as Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards: “The Executive Order requires that executive agencies refer to the standards, adopted in 2010, as Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards, and encourages citizens and education stakeholders to do the same.” Their standards are still CCSS.
  • Iowa’s Governor Terry Branstad (R) also chose to “rebrand” now referring to the standards as the “Iowa Core”. Imaginative!
  • Florida’s Governor Rick Scott (R) opted to rebrand by removing the words “Common Core” from all official education documents. Floridians are under the impression the new standards name is the “Next Generation Sunshine State Standards however that name was put in place in 2007 and remains today for all except the ELA and Math Standards. Those are being referred to simply as 2014 Language Arts Florida Standards and the 2014 Mathematics Florida Standards and they were renamed in February, 2014.

When Scott was asked if the standards had just been re-branded he replied, “The Florida Standard is derived from the Next Generation Sunshine State Standard, which was derived from earlier versions of the Sunshine State Standards. These standards pre-dated Common Core and are truly Florida’s own standards.”

What about Florida’s obligation to the Federal Government from our acceptance of Race to the Top money? Gov. Scott said: “Race to the Top was a four-year grant. That grant has expired, it’s done. We are no longer under obligation to the Federal Government. So we are pushing back against any Federal intrusion into our public schools.”

This statement is also a lie since Florida applied for an extension to complete all their requirements when they filed their last report. Another lie, we still have money and he has an extension until Sept 1, 2015 – the RTTT deal is not over!

RTTT Extension

  • Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence (R), the first to accept the CCSS and then the first to supposedly “replace” the CCSS is still in hot water with his parents and voters. It is obvious the new Indiana standards are so close to the old ones that stating they are “rebranded” is certainly more appropriate than saying they are changed.

Florida’s Governor Scott thought he was smart to call for 3 meetings to hear complaints about the standards, but he forgot two things at those meetings – the parents and himself! He couldn’t find the time to attend any of those meetings or the Town Hall events he called for – but at the same time he found the time to go all the way to South Florida to have dinner with Jeb Bush.

How is your state doing? Are they continually lying to you, playing a cover-up game? Florida tells us they have made 99 changes to the CCSS to make them our own, but no details showing what those changes supposedly are. The 99 changes involving cursive writing and calculus will not be tested on in the general state tests, out of eleven thousand math and English standards means nothing.

It is called TEST UNTIL YOU DROP!

All the participating CC states were required to file a yearly report to the FDOE if they received Race To The Top (RTTT) funds explaining how they spent the funds, how much they have left, what goals they listed on their applications have been completed and which ones haven’t and why! Florida RETAINED most of the $700M they received in Tallahassee in round 2 according to their own words to pay for a flubbed up CCSS web site and contracts they needed to put in place to be compliant.

I noticed this past week several local school districts around the country had amendments or referendums on their ballots to increase school taxes. I’m not surprised, but I am surprised the voters were dumb enough to vote for the increases to their property taxes to pay for this boondoggle of a Trojan Horse. Are you really prepared to take head on the estimated costs of the CCSS?  $1,024,163,000 is one estimate.

Interestingly enough in Florida, Scott stayed as far away from the topic of the CCSS as he could during the campaign. Even Jeb Bush hitting the trail for Scott tried to stay away from the topic, but Bush never does know when not to lie. When asked about the changes to Florida’s CCSS he said, “he agrees with Scott’s statement that “Common Core is out” in Florida. Florida’s changes to Common Core were not substantial, and standards are now “Florida-based” and higher”.

How can Bush say “CC is out of FL” & then “concede FL made changes to the CCSS that were not substantial“? Makes Absolutely No Sense and in my playbook it’s called “doublespeak”!

How do the Master Deceivers in your state work? The ones in Florida tried to convince the FDOE they have complied with all requirements while at the same time convincing the public that the Florida standards are something other than Common Core with a new name or “lipstick on a pig.” Notice the changes here, FL has all 3 standards!

Common Core Standards

Florida powers to be tripped all over themselves in trying to convince everyone the CCSS were gone, yet at the same time, after having asked for an extension and renewed their NCLB waiver in June 2014, it would have broken the rules of the waiver – and Rick Scott really likes to play with money.

Equally interesting is these states have all had to sign a “memorandum of understanding” with the FDOE regarding RTTT if they were planning to apply for the grants or expect to be picked, which is what Florida did. Contrary to what Florida’s governor said, it is obvious the rules still apply regarding RTTT because they asked for the extension to comply.

I hope the “powers to be in charge” of these states understand clearly “we” have NOT been educated with the CCSS. We know full well you are liars, fence jumpers, manipulators, deceivers, and in bed with the likes of Carnegie, Gates, Soros, Bush Dynasty, ALEC, NEA, NTA, Charter School Management Companies and actually too many others to name. Anyone who is willing to put some “cash” into your election “cow” – you will cop a deal with.

That is everyone but the American people.

Florida’s raging battle over Choice/Charter/Vouchers is beginning to take on a sickening level. Actually there is no difference between the “money men” involved in vouchers, choice and charters. They are all part of the same pot with the same legislature passing all this lenient legislation.

Vouchers/Choice nor Charters do not get our children away from Common Core and I thought that was the main issue. The Florida Supreme court has already ruled once against Vouchers being unconstitutional according to the state statutes. The legislature did it anyway and now they are back in court.

Politics did had its ugly hand in the last election when it came to education right down to the local boards. There is no love loss by me for the “Step Up For Student’s” and nor should there be for you. They are just another “cash cow” looking to fill coffers in the name of the “low-income” children. But they all have been playing the low-income game since 1965 and it never gets any better. Why? They all continue to use those children as scape goats rather encouraging them and laying out the world in front of them. Money does not buy good education!

Interesting the support of the voucher programs and like the Charter school mess, there is no one minding the store. There are so many scandals surrounding the McKay Scholarship program along with the legislation that was passed that even though a Private school is receiving Public taxpayer funds, they don’t have to abide by FOIA requests. So who is minding the stores?

David Figlio of Northwestern University, who has evaluated the scholarship program on an annual basis for the state – guess whose side he’s on. If he is being paid by the state, you need to look no further.

Some in Florida believe that in re-electing Scott he would be “thankful” and be willing to talk “dump the CCSS” completely. That is not going to happen. Not only is the man a businessman first and foremost, he never (even in his own lawsuit) faces his accusers nor answers questions about anything.

Although it was Charlie Crist and the Republican House & Senate that gave Florida the CCSS, the state would have been better off to elect Crist since the monopoly of republicans in Tallahassee would never have given Crist anything he wanted. They won’t give it to us either.

Nor will those in D.C. The republicans took charge of the House and Senate in ’94 and ’02 and exactly what did that give us?  Promises!

You are right if you think my faith in any politician has flown out the proverbial window and I still don’t understand why you put all of your faith in them rather than your own intelligence especially after they have lied to you so many times. Most should have been removed from their jobs at the local level already. You would have been!

They are ruining our children’s futures, actively working at creating the North American Union as a prelude to the New World Order and pushing your children into UN/UNESCO communist education .

As J. Edgar Hoover (FBI) stated at the time Eisenhower signed The Communist Control Act in 1954, “you are forcing the Communist Party movement to go underground” which is exactly what it did for a period of time. Once they realized no one was going to act on the ACT, they began to slowly surface through the building up of unions and control all over the country. We now even openly elect communists into elected offices.

I see this country as having been an expansive experiment – touched by the hand of God, implemented by Godly people and what do we have today? Nothing but scraps left – 97% of the people asleep or could care less. If you are sitting on the sidelines watching what politicians have done to this country with their egos and self-serving attitude it is truly a sad sight.

I sincerely hope more states are successful in gaining back the control of the education of their children and along with that the morals and values that were once the strong force behind this great country.

“Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude and Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number”.    Alexis de Tocqueville  1848

Are You For Real? Fried Chicken?

Is there a written rule or law that says Fried Chicken signifies what a Black person is? Did I miss that somewhere in my travels or in all the books I’ve read?

Fried ChickenOur First Lady, (though she doesn’t deserve the honor of first lady being capitalized) told the Black citizens of this country they deserve the honor of eating not just any chicken – but friend chicken if they voted on Tuesday, Nov 4, 2014. Not only that, they didn’t have to just vote but make sure they voted for only Democrats.

She even went far enough to give the Black Americans of this country PERMISSION to eat some friend chicken after they voted.

I find her statement the most insulting thing she could have said to the Black people of this country. Does she have in her mind they are all still in the fields, have no intelligence and cannot even think for themselves. I’m actually surprised she didn’t throw in the collard greens for an added treat.

And by the way first lady, what makes you think only Black people vote Democrat or like fried chicken or collard greens for that matter? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised considering some of the other statements you have made regarding various subjects and you are a racist.

ILady Justicet is interesting though that you have never bothered to tell the American people why you no longer have a law license and that you will never be able to practice law again after your daddy spent all that money on you to go to law school. Even though Wikipedia still gives you the title of being a lawyer, without a license you aren’t one, only studied to be one.

But of course we must remember you were never ever happy until the day Barack was elected president. We can forget your Princeton and Harvard Law school education. Or the great jobs you had where you did next to nothing.

We do know your ancestors were slaves and that you came from the Gullah line of people from South Carolina’s low country (great people), but your family did have and took advantage of the great opportunity to move above those types of living conditions. But White people have also – did you forget the first slaves in America were White Irish and the first slave owner was Black African?

Maybe you madam, would do well to return to school to learn Black History Month started out as Negro History WEEK in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson a son of former slaves. The 2nd week of February was chosen in honor of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln who were both born that week. It wasn’t until 1976 when your race took over the whole month.

Even Independence Day lasts for 24 hours – maybe we should change that.

To set the record straight, the first blacks to arrive in America were not slaves, but indentured servants. There is a difference and they were both Black and White.

Indentured servants, especially whites, could (and often did) slip away, and become part of another settlement and simply disappear. A permanent, economically beneficial solution for the elites was sought and implemented.

An added note here that might be fitting is the Bible does address “social injustice”:  The love of money is the root of all evil.”  Nothing against money, but the love of precipitated then as it does now, misery.

Anthony JohnsonOh the name of the first Black slave owner – Anthony Johnson! He came to this country in 1620 as an indentured servant to the Colony of Virginia. He didn’t come freely as so many had but was captured in Angola by neighboring tribesmen and eventually sold to a merchant who transported him to Virginia, where he was then sold to a tobacco farmer. I believe this is known as “black on black” crime!

Despite this, Johnson was not technically a slave, as most think of it.  He was simply required to serve the farmer for a time in exchange for room and board.  He worked on that tobacco farm for 14 years learning a trade, was granted his freedom and was also given payment for his services. He purchased land and what he needed to farm it including BLACK slaves.

So you see first lady, you did have a great deal to be thankful for and – those white Irish slaves? “The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600’s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.”

“Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.”

“During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. During this time, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, [Oliver] Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.”

One piece of history that seems to get lost for some reason is that the Irish slaves are often remembered as ‘indentured servants.’ However, in most cases during the 17th and 18th centuries, they were no more than “human cattle.”

So once again first lady, you really should take a refresher course in American History and maybe the White Irish of this country will decide to celebrate for a whole month too rather than just one skinny day each year.

In fact, maybe we should be looking for some of the “booty” the Federal government has handed out to all those who like to claim they came from Black slave families. It might be a good thing to go back and really find out for sure if they were “indentured” or just called themselves slaves for the sympathy.

I know they weren’t treated very well – no one who is ever put in a situation like that is, be it here in America or some other country. However, you first lady have never had to endure anything like that and I also find it very interesting you have so much genealogy on your family given they were supposed to be slaves. Most from that far back know nothing to pass on.

By the way, I hope you gave the same chicken eating instructions to all the Democrats who are currently sitting in Congress and the Senate – I wouldn’t want them to feel left out.

And for that final History lesson – it is not “whitey” who has kept you down!

  • The Republican Party brought an end to slavery which led to the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution.
  • 1854 – (R) Party formed on the Platform of Anti-Slavery
  • 1865 – 13th Amendment to abolish slavery – 100% R party; 23% D party
  • 1866 – Civil Rights Act – enacted by the R Party to all emancipated slaves
  • 1868 – 14th Amendment – Citizenship – 94% R party; 0% D party
  • 1870 – 15th Amendment – Right to Vote – 100% R party; 0% D party
  • 1871 – Anti- KKK Civil Rights Act – Enacted Republican Congress
  • 1875 – Anti Discrimination – 99.5% R party; 0% D party
  • 1957 – Civil Rights Act 1957 – Established Civil Rights Commission – Sen. John F. Kennedy and the D Party were opposed
  • 1964 – Civil Rights Act 1964 – Passed after cloture vote – written and introduced by Sen. Everett McKinley (R) – 80% R party; 63% D party

Black AmericansAs is apparent, the Democratic Party began to come around but, unfortunately, the Democratic Party chose to move on with indoctrination, manipulation, applauding abortions, telling Black Americans they couldn’t succeed and generally keeping them under the “democratic thumb of entitlement. This is the technique the “highfalutin” Black populace like the Obama’s, Schumer’s, Rev. Wright, and Jesse Jackson’s of America have and continue to use on the Black American’s in this country.

Someday they will realize it is not the White or Hispanic people living in this country who have made their lives miserable, but the Democratic Party and some of their own people.

And thank you for the permission for that friend chicken first lady – I did have some last night and it was really good. However, I heard about your remarks today so I really didn’t have your permission, nor do I ever need your permission to do anything.

One last thing! Don’t you think it is time you referred to yourself as American or did you lose your citizenship with your law license?

VOTE NO on AMENDMENT 1

Florida Coalition For Property Rights

Florida Tax Watch Opposes Amendment One

Florida Tax Watch: Amendment 1 is the wrong way to go

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Property Tax State Budgets Business Elections Vacation and Timeshares

SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL OP-ED ONLINE

by Dominic Calabro

There is no doubt that Florida’s property tax system needs to be reformed. This current inequitable system, coupled with rapidly increasing local government spending, has produced tremendous tax increases for many taxpayers. Unfortunately, these are not the taxpayers that Amendment 1 would help. The Legislature’s need to pass something “people will vote for,” coupled with a sincere desire to help Floridians who cannot afford to move because of higher taxes, resulted in a proposal that is not only unsatisfactory but also likely to be detrimental. Not to mention that one of the provisions may be unconstitutional.

Amendment 1 is bad policy for a number of reasons.

Amendment 1 does not provide the kind of tax relief that Florida needs. It gives most of the relief to those who need it the least (long-term Save Our Homes property), while giving very little to those that have seen their taxes rise the most (non-homestead property). Homeowners who have been in their homes since Save Our Homes was enacted have lower tax bills today than they did in 1994, in inflation-adjusted dollars. Everyone else has paid for the doubling of total Florida property taxes in the last six years. It is new homebuyers and non-homesteaders–landlords and renters, businesses, second and vacation homeowners, snowbirds and even homesteaders who also own non-homestead property–who has shouldered the burden of increasing property taxes. However, the amendment bestows 80% of its savings to homestead properties, leaving far too little the non-homestead property owners currently suffering the most.

Amendment 1 is not just a tax cut; it is a tax shift. It will perpetuate the current system and exacerbate the shift of tax burden from homestead to non-homestead property. It will also continue to shift tax burden to new homeowners.

Simply put, the 10% cap for non-homestead property is so high as to be of little value to most properties. The average annual growth in the total value of non-homestead properties is less than 5%. And since school taxes are not covered under the cap, it only applies to approximately 60% of the average tax bill. It could help some properties with extraordinary spikes in value, but even that help could be short-lived. If a covered property’s just value does not rise as much as the cap, the assessment can still increase 10%, as long as it does not exceed just value. Therefore, it will be very hard for the vast majority of non-homestead properties to accumulate any savings. The cap will also be repealed in ten years, unless voters re-approve it.

The lack of Save Our Homes “portability” is a real problem that needs to be addressed, but the way Amendment 1 provides it creates some serious constitutional concerns. A legal expert hired by the Legislature warns of “100% certainty” of a constitutional challenge to the amendment on the grounds that portability violates the U.S. Commerce Clause. Besides the legal concerns, another economic report commissioned by the Legislature for $500,000 states “Portability increasingly shifts the tax burden from longer-term residents to newer, less affluent, homeowners and to non-homestead properties.” The legislature has largely ignored these experts – the voters should not.

The proposal does not restrict local governments’ ability to increase millage rates to recoup revenue losses, thereby lessening the savings for some and shifting more tax burden to others. While there will be significant political pressure to keep millage rates down, some governments will surely adjust rates to recoup at least some of the taxpayer savings. Not to mention increasing non-ad valorem assessments and other fees.

Perhaps most importantly: If voters approve this new amendment, future attempts to reform non-homestead property taxes will be extremely difficult. By providing more benefits to homesteaders and attempting to fix problems Save Our Homes created for them, this would make it much more difficult to create a future constitutional amendment to help non-homestead property that would garner the 60% voter support needed to pass. Proponents, most of which acknowledge some of the amendment’s shortcomings, like to say this is a “first step.” Instead, it could well be the death of hope for comprehensive property tax reform.

Although many Floridians of all types are struggling with property taxes, property tax reform must include real relief for renters, new homebuyers, second homeowners, and businesses. These groups drive the Florida economy and yet are saddled with the largest portion of the tax burden. This system is unfair and unsustainable. If something is not done, these groups (largely unrepresented at the polls) will “vote with their feet.”

Voters must acknowledge there is no such thing as a free ride. Unfair taxes on one group of taxpayers have ramifications for all taxpayers. Businesses, whenever possible, will pass along the higher property taxes they pay through increased prices of their goods and services purchased by all Floridians. Those businesses that cannot, and those renters and part-time residents that cannot, will be priced out of doing business or living in Florida. If that happens, all Floridians will suffer.

Florida can, and must, do better. Sound advice for amending the constitution is “when in doubt, leave it out.” But we are convinced there is more than just doubt, there is plenty of evidence that this is not the right thing for Florida’s taxpayers and economy. Some people say, “well at least its something.” Instead, we caution this is a step backwards.

When amending the constitution, you must get it right. Amendment 1 does not get it right.

Do We Protect Our Children Or Sexual Deviates? Part 4

Abortion 3In the previous postings in Parts 1, 2 and 3, I mentioned some of the actions and involvements in our children’s lives regarding Planned Parenthood (PP). You might not consider most women who have abortions as “sexual deviates” but I do since they are having an abortion 93% of the time because of having had consensual sex, not being raped, not wanting to take responsibility for their own birth control and we have to pay for all of it.

For parents and their children, Planned Parenthood is a VERY dirty business. Their main concern is nothing more than the bottom line on their financial spread sheet. They don’t care about your daughters or your sons for that matter.

Why is it Americans can get so upset when physical harm is done to an animal but not a human being? There are more of us than them!

Former PP employees have become whistleblowers and their stories are very similar. They are certainly NOT supposed to show any compassion to the women or girls walking into their clinics to participate in an act of murder. They are spending more time instructing them now on how to have safe sexual bondage/sadomasochism, including gagging, whipping, defecation, emulating pornography, and going to sex stores to “get educated.

http://youtu.be/4WNsKJkru2A    http://youtu.be/pE1feXDfsyc

The Whole Truth Behind Planned Parenthood!

Whether you approve of abortion or not is certainly a personal issue, however I take issue with PP getting rich off of the practice using our tax dollars and with PP’s practice of teaching our children how to have various kinds of sex rather them teaching abstention.

Planned Parenthood in the past few years has grown into a barter for sex among our high school students then offering them the abortions to get rid of the result of that sexual activity to go back and do it again.

Who are these people who work in these abortion clinics and join in this grotesque merry-go-round of evil? The legislators set it up so the young girls don’t have to have their parent’s permission to have an abortion, but they can’t take an aspirin at school. What kind of sick system is this?

GosnellThe news comes out about a gross so called “doctor” like Kermit Gosnell and the parent’s spend a few days “saying that’s terrible”, “I wouldn’t let someone like him touch my daughter”. Really? What are you going to do to stop it?

What about these people who made it possible for someone like Gosnell do his evil deeds? They stay and watch, assist the man and also fail to report the cases of rape against these girls – these poor children are being assaulted over and over again.

To make matters worse, it is not just the rapists who are aided by PP, but the pedophiles too. They count on PP NOT reporting the cases of rape and in some cases torture of these young girls. How do these workers sleep at night? Just a job?

A recent report done by Life Dynamics found that pedophiles rely on the help from abortion clinics to ensure that their crimes never come to light. Reading all the incidences against children, it is self-evident that when a minor girl seeks an abortion, she represents a textbook example of why mandatory reporting laws were created in the first place.

Are you aware that 60-80% of girls 15 and under that get pregnant are impregnated by adult men?

The additional horror in all of this is the law enforcement community is functionally indifferent to the problem of abortion clinics not complying with mandatory reporting statutes even in the face of irrefutable evidence that violations are occurring. I guess they have bigger fish to fry. What if it was their daughter?

Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics states, “Among all the cases we researched – whether they are included in this report or not – we never found one example in which criminal charges were brought against an abortion clinic employee for failing to comply with their state’s mandatory reporting statutes. This was true even when this failure was (a) noted during the investigation and/or trial and (b) was a direct contributor to subsequent assaults on these children. In some cases, the abortion clinics flaunting of these laws even resulted in sexual assaults being committed against other underage girls”.

The evidence is clear and the facts are laid out for you: a pedophile’s best friend is his neighborhood abortion clinic. Yet, we do nothing. Our government and our justice system do nothing to prosecute the lawbreakers at the abortion clinics who allow these young girls to get raped and tortured over and over again.

I can’t help going back to Part 2 when I explained the “fisting event” at Brookline High School in Brookline, MA where Planned Parenthood, a long-time GLSEN ally, brought enough “fisting” kits for everyone at the 2005 event and laid them out on their table for all to take.  Massachusetts News reported, “Out of approximately 650 attendees, about 400 of those were students.

The Little Black BookNot only that, the “Little Black Book – Queer in the 21st Century was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at the high school that day. It was written by the Boston-based AIDS Action Committee, with help with the MA Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission with financial support from GLSEN.

And the school system allowed this – do these teacher’s need their jobs so much that they are unwilling to protect these young things in their charge? I guess none of them have children or have most definitely fallen into the hole of evil.

Not only have abortion clinics been part of the greatest genocide our planet has ever seen – the legal murder of some 60 million children to date – but now we also find that they are part and parcel of a system that allows millions of other children to be tortured by sadistic perverts who rely on abortion providers for anonymity.

And you can’t understand the growth in Human Trafficking? I promise you that for every person that comes up missing and there is never a body found, the business of Human Trafficking has them no matter the age.

Sexual predators or pedophiles if you will, never stop with their own children either. They move on, intimidating the child beyond belief, raping time after time, yet once the rape is eventually examined by the authorities and the perpetrator is arrested and locked up, the abuse stops immediately.

As an adult, you may believe you have a right to choose between life or death, and for that I feel sorry for you in that you took the easy way out. But a young child is not given the freedom to be a child. She sees no way out of her torture nor does she understand that she is now pregnant and additionally has her parents to deal with. She is ridden with guilt placed there by her perpetrator destroying her very soul.

Planned Parenthood is guilty of murder and the destruction of our children’s very childhood. Parents you need to step up!

Cecile Richards 4Cecile Richards, the President of Planned Parenthood who is paid in excess of $400,000 a year for being the one and only CEO of LEGALIZED MURDER and is a life-long “community organizer and activist”, is married to Kirk Adams, who has also been a lifelong labor union organizer and has risen to executive vice president of Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.

Just to remind you – the sexual deviation business is being paid for by some heavy hitters – not to mention your own money.

Our Federal government is as responsible for the murder of these babies as are these organizations/businesses. Legislative seats filled with Progressives (communists) and at the very least far left social justice freaks, have played right into the hands of people like Alice LaTrobe Bateman, aka Alice Bailey, Karl Marx, Margaret Sanger, George Soros, Rockefeller family and the Gates Foundation – all of whom are eugenists.

Clinic’s Investigated – Latest Info:

  • Carmen Rios (@c_rios) who calls herself a “raging lesbian feminist” who is (a) communications coordinator for the Feminist Majority Foundation, and (b) a columnist for the lesbian blog Autostraddle, puts out her latest spin, “Hi, we’re Lesbian feminists and we’re here to talk to your daughter about sex”.

Or how about this

  • Apparently, as I reported above, Planned Parenthood is so desperate for business and their bottom line, they’ll cover up statutory rape to get it. Thanks to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the Arizona Health Services Department may finally have cause to investigate America’s largest abortion business. According to reports, a Tempe clinic failed to report the sexual assault of an underage girl — one of a dozen possible victims of a local sexual predator. The young girl’s mom told investigators that the counselor “intentionally mislabeled the pregnancy” as a consensual encounter, because she “didn’t want the hassle” of reporting it.

“Planned Parenthood’s main concern should be the safety of young girls,” said ADF attorney Natalie Decker, “not the size of its profit margin. Sadly, this is not an exception, and Planned Parenthood is abusing more than just taxpayer dollars.”

  • Can they explain the neglect and horrible choices that killed Tonya Reaves at a PP Chicago clinic?
  • Can they explain why they have on staff and continue to support physicians who are being sued for negligence for a botched abortion that took place while the clinic was on probation for supplying abortions to underage teens without parental consent?

Just one of these is one too many!

Amid the controversy of Richards speaking to the graduating students of Barnard College, there were some reactions of shock and strong disagreement. One would hope the powers to be would consider the feelings of all graduates, not just those who might think the same way they do.

Barnard’s introduction to the graduation video on their website showed clearly they were not particularly happy with Richard’s appearance stating: “Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards urged graduates to be activists, troublemakers, and agitators”, something she herself has always done. Richards went on to applaud the controversy of PP and applaud the founder Margaret Sanger.

I wonder why Richards fails to speak to the facts that Sanger was an atheist, militant socialist (her husband Wm introduced her to this), Marxist, racist, occultist, and a believer in promiscuous sex.

Sanger, having been referred to as the “Mother of the American Abortion Holocaust” and focusing on black Americans to enforce her eugenics, we can only hope that someday they will realize what this whole philosophy has done to their race.

It is a shame that abortion is often regarded as a form of “liberation” but rather often does the opposite to vulnerable women who find themselves in such a situation, and certainly to the unborn children who are victims.

“Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well-considered and yet fervent public conviction that the most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a child’s spirit; for such mutilation undercuts the life principle of trust, without which every human act, may it feel ever so good and seem ever so right is prone to perversion by destructive forms of conscientiousness.”  Erik Erikson

CHARTER SCHOOL GRAVY TRAIN and TOTAL RUINATION OF AMERICAN EDUCATION Part 1

Those of you who read my postings know I am trying to educate you on the dangers of Charter/Choice/Vouchers. Outside of it being the road to a Federal takeover of education, it is a proverbial “money tree” and they are using your children as “human collateral.” In this posting I have used Florida Charter School Management companies because it is where I live. My suggestion is that you check what is happening with the Charter schools in your state.

Actually some of these charter school management companies do operate in multiple states.

One warm Thursday in July, dozens upon dozens of bankers, hedge fund types and private equity investors gathered in New York to hear about the latest and greatest opportunities to collect a cut of your property taxes. Of course, the promotional material for the Capital Roundtable’s conference on “private equity investing in for-profit education companies” didn’t put it in such crass terms, but that’s what was going on.

Charter schools are booming with the push of the federal and state governments. “There are now more than 6,400 in the United States, up from 2,500 a decade ago, educating a record 2.5 million children,” according to Reuters.

Charter PrivaiCharters have a limited admissions policy, and the applications can be as complex as those at private schools. But parents don’t pay tuition and support comes directly from the school district in which the charter is located. This is the same $$ allotted to each child attending a regular public school only at a lessor percentage. They are also lucrative, attracting players like the specialty real estate investment trust EPR Properties(EPR). Charter schools are in the firm’s $3 billion portfolio along with retail space and movie megaplexes.

Charter schools are frequently a way for politicians to reward their cronies. In Ohio, two firms operate 9% of the state’s charter schools and are collecting 38% of the state’s charter school funding increase this year. The operators of both firms donate generously to elect Republicans.

The Arizona Republic found that charters “bought a variety of goods and services from the companies of board members or administrators, including textbooks, air conditioning repairs and transportation services.” Most charters were exempt from a requirement to seek competitive bids on contracts over $5,000.

In Florida, the for-profit school industry flooded legislative candidates with $1.8 million in donations last year. “Most of the money,” reports The Miami Herald, “went to Republicans, whose support of charter schools, vouchers, online education and private colleges has put public education dollars in private-sector pockets.”

Florida also created a major piece of legislation protecting public-private partnerships involved in education and other financial ventures. They also have legislators who vote on charter school legislation while owning or receiving financial gains from charter schools. Legislators in Florida are allowed to sit on Jeb Bush’s foundation (FEE) which includes the state’s commissioner of education. The money flows heavy in Florida.

Don’t misunderstand me – there are other state legislators, state superintendents and commissioners of education from several states along with Arne Duncan, David Coleman, Condoleezza Rice, and Richard N. Haass (Pres. CFR) who are “reformers” on the Jeb Bush Foundation, not just Florida. No matter where they are from you cannot “serve more than one master without hating one and loving the other or holding to one and despising the other”.

Among the big donors: the private equity firm Apollo Group, the outfit behind the for-profit University of Phoenix, which has experimented with online high schools. Apollo dropped $95,000 on Florida candidates and committees.

Lest you get the idea charter schools are a “Republican” thing, they are also favored by big-city Democrats. When 23 public schools closed for good in Philadelphia — about 10% of the total — they were replaced by charters. Charters have a history in Washington, D.C., going back to 1996 and they also have a strong home in Chicago.

They were favored by Arne Duncan when he ran the Chicago Public Schools. In 2009, Duncan rolled out the Obama administration’s “Race to the Top” initiative, doling out $4.4 billion in federal money to the states — but only to those states that lifted their caps on the number of charter schools and agreed to play the Common Core Standards game.

After Katrina, New Orleans went totally off the grid opting to make all their schools Charter schools. Is anyone really looking at these schools as to what curriculum they are using? Who is minding the store? New Orleans is riddled with scandals yet they claim their hands are clean.

A recent case study by the Harvard Business School examined the charter school reform efforts in New Orleans. The district is now composed of 70 Recovery School District (RSD) schools managed by the state (including 37 RSD charter schools) and 16 schools managed by the local Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) (including 12 OPSB charter schools). RSD Schools are a result of Act 9 of the Louisiana State Legislature passed in 2003 to manage under-performing schools throughout the state.

Why are they going CHARTER when they too must be aligned to the Common Core Standards? Is it because they have lenient legislation guiding them or maybe it’s as simple as they have fallen for the lies regarding Charter schools because the powers to be certainly do not make public the information on Charter school closures when regular public schools (RPS) are not being closed.

Sadly, they have been accused of manipulating the data and that they are using a different, lower standard of measuring their achievements to make more schools look better. It seems to be making an impact on the quality of education in New Orleans but then there is nothing to compare them to. This reminds me of “suffer the little children.”

Other states have also lowered their standard of measuring their achievements since their “CCS” is not working.

In 2012, the Federal government showed how they support the Charter school system announcing the FY2012 grant competition for the Replication and Expansion of High Quality Charter Schools. I don’t know about your state, but Florida gives really big chunks of grant monies to starting Charter schools – and if they fail – your tax dollars just got flushed down the toilet.

Under the FY2012 appropriations law, Pub. L. No. 112-74, Division F, Title III, the Secretary is authorized to reserve up to $55 million for the replication and expansion of successful charter models.

A quick perusal of the Notice raises at least two questions: (1) If pre-existing successful models are to be replicated, why has the Department included six competitive preference priorities that may necessitate applicants changing their models to be in the running for a grant? (2) Given the grants are to replicate successful models, why give novice applicants extra points? Why not put everyone on equal footing in the competition?

In 2011, Congress voted overwhelmingly (365-54) to approve H.R. 2218, the Empowering Parents Through Quality Charter Schools Act. The bill is the first of a handful of Ed and Workforce Committee measures that reauthorize parts of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Among other things, the legislation makes a number of improvements to the federal charter program to facilitate the replication of greater numbers of high quality charter schools. The legislation revamps the current charter schools’ discretionary grant program, among other things, to give priority to states that do not cap the numbers of charter schools.

Always remember the purpose of the support by politicians who want nationalized education is the fact Charter schools have “UNELECTED SCHOOL BOARDS and “LENIENT LEGISLATION” which is ‘TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.” To better understand what is truly happening, each parent should read their state’s statutes regarding all parts of Charter school implementation, financial support, oversight and certification of the schools and teachers.

Again I remind you, if you are thinking of moving your child from a RPS to a public Charter school, they are both using Common Core curriculums and following the Common Core State Standards where you live.

Ask yourself, “why the lenient legislation for Charter schools”?

The for-profit Charter School management companies are providing everything from back office operations including payroll, contracting with vendors for food services, textbook, etc., to hiring principals and teachers and curriculum control at an enormous cost. So what has been sold to parents and children as local public education innovation are actually national charter-chains, the “Waltmartization” of public education. The Charter schools pay huge management fees to these for-profit businesses.

Over three-quarters of all charter school students are enrolled in a “charter chain school” in the United States. The top four charter operators in Florida for 2013-2014 were:

AcademicaAcademica (100) – This management company is owned by Fernando Zulueta. To put the frosting on the “cupcake”, Erik Fresen, FL. legislator is also the brother-in-law of Zulueta. He also serves on the board of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools along with Jeb Bush, Jr. Fresen not only has financial connections to the charter operator through his architectural firm, but also chairs the FL House Education Appropriations Subcommittee. Previously, Fresen worked as a lobbyist for Academica in the state. Fresen isn’t the only Florida legislator with ties to the company.

State Senator Anitere Flores is the CEO of Doral College, a private college affiliated with a charter school run by Academica. Before running again in 2012, she had stated if she was offered this position she would not run – she did anyway.

The company’s owners carry additional favor through campaign donations. In a 2011 investigation, the Miami Herald noted: State election records show Academica’s owners, Fernando and Ignacio Zulueta, have steered $150,000 in campaign donations to Tallahassee lawmakers and political committees through real-estate companies they have controlled since 2007. The records also show the Zulueta family has donated an additional $75,000 in the past five years, and Academica executives and school contractors donated another $54,000. During that time, the Legislature relaxed rules and passed lenient legislation, some of which was presented and pushed by Fresen. Fresen has also had ethics charges filed against him for his actions in the legislature, but they have always been dismissed.

How can a legislator support and vote on Charter school legislation, make financial gains from a Charter school and sit on the pro-Charter Foundation (FEE) of Jeb Bush’s and be impartial and have the children’s futures at the fore front of their decision making?

Jonnnathan HageCharter Schools USA (CSUSA) – They had the honor last year of having their CEO Jonathan Hage named Florida’s “Man of the Year”. I guess Florida had no one else who could fill those shoes. Before forming this for-profit charter school management company, Hage was the research director for Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Florida’s Future and also served on Governor Rick Scott’s education transition team. Tina Bennett, wife of former Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett, also works for the company.

Emails obtained through a public records request revealed that Charter Schools USA is one of the many sponsors of the Chiefs for Change, a project of Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education (FEE) and Hage is also considered one of Bush’s “Reformers.”

For a test, I looked up one of their Charter Schools in Orange Cnty, FL which is a K-8 school. Checking their 2014 budget and taking what they state would be spent for Professional and Vendor services averaged out to give $1,283.93 less per student. They receive $6077.00 for each of the 924 students. They budgeted to spend $42,400 for advertising; $353,512.00 for CSUSA Management fees; $15K for Accounting Services; $161,445.00 Custodial Services; $255,232.00 Contracted Food Service to name a few. This school received an F last year and is still open. Why is that? I could find no where on their website the name of the Principal or how many teachers they have.

Just what do you get for the $353,512 management fees?

Charter School Associates – They currently have 17 schools in Florida and it is owned and operated by Mike and Estelle Strader. As Executive Director of the Center for Education Entrepreneurs, Mike organized Florida’s first state-wide workshop to assist first year operators (Survival Training for Charter Operators) and developed the first “How-To” guide for Florida charter developers (The Florida Charter School Planning Guide).He has presented at national and state conferences including the National Association of Educators in Private Practice, The National Charter School Conference and the Florida Charter School Conference.

They boast the use of a Math curriculum called Mathletics and it is Common Core aligned.

Jason Bryant ImagineImagine Schools – A for-profit Charter School Management Co., Imagine also owns a for-profit real estate development company (Schoolhouse Finance) and a non-profit management company (Imagine Schools Non-Profit). In some places, Imagine run schools dedicate nearly half their operating expenses to rent. The high rent rates not only divert resources from the classroom, the costs pushing some Imagine schools into debt, and sometimes that debt is owed to Imagine’s for-profit arm. (Further criticism)

Jason Bryant, their CEO and President prior to joining Imagine in 2005, worked at AES Corporation. His tenure at AES included operations oversight of multiple power plants in California, leading development efforts in Kazakhstan, and overseeing operations in Brazil and Spain as commercial and financial director. Sounds like a great background for overseeing the education of children. Not!

More!

These are not the small, locally run experimental schools envisioned by the original legislation as told to voters.

The threat of vouchers, wavering support for public education, and bipartisan support for charters has led some unions to start charters themselves. Several AFT chapters, such as those in Houston and Dallas, have themselves started charters. The National Education Association has allocated $1.5 million to help members start charter schools. Proponents claim that charters offer teachers a measure of empowerment, employee ownership, and governance that might be enhanced by union assistance.

The White House on both sides of the political realm has had their fingers in this also. You must ask yourself why are they making our schools i.e., our children’s education, part of the political and business world?

Charter school implementation was one of the main objectives of former President George H. W. Bush. Since that time it seems to have been a “family” affair.

Former President Bill Clinton saw charter schools, with their emphasis on autonomy and accountability, as a workable political compromise and an alternative to vouchers

Others, such as former President George W. Bush, saw charter schools as a way to improve schools without antagonizing the teachers’ union. Bush made charter schools a major part of his No Child Left Behind Act. Despite endorsements, a recent report by the AFT has shown charter schools not faring as well as public schools on state administered standardized testing.

With Jeb Bush deeply in bed with Bill Gates and on a full-time move for Charter schools and Vouchers/Tax Credits for Private and Parochial schools one must wonder what their alternative motives are? Get rich? Power? Control? It certainly is not because they care about our children and their receiving a good education.

Jeb Bush’s web of deceit and deception involves not just the money men, but legislators, state superintendents/commissioners of education, corporate giants and Democrats such as Obama, Arne Duncan, David Coleman and the President of the CFR Haas.

Isn’t it strange how close those on both sides of the fence relate to each other and the same agenda’s? Bill Clinton who looks on G.H.W. Bush as a father figure!

Quick note: Jeb Bush has removed his tab on his web site that formerly named all the Reformers who were both R’s and D’s sitting on his Foundation – backers of the Bush education agenda and most involved in some way with education. Hum! Maybe he thinks we don’t remember who they were.

More than one opponent to Charter schools have examined the competing claims of success and suggest that most students in charter schools perform the same or worse than their traditional public school counterparts on standardized tests.

Data-Mining Systems Are Here to Stay – Pre-K to College and Beyond!

snatching 2Some of you may already be aware of these words spoken by Sen. Lamar Alexander (TN) at the 1989 Governor’s Conference in Kansas. Unless you really listen to the words, you will miss their true meaning. Given the tone of “the powers to be today” in wanting to indoctrinate our children and to eventually make their education be totally under federal control, I think you will find this interesting:

“I want to suggest that you create, in Kansas, a New American School – Brand New American School. I want to suggest that when you do that, you help that new school develop some new goals and new report cards for itself.

I would go down to the maternity ward of the local hospital, or whatever you call the part of the hospital where the nurses are who are there when the babies are born. Find out how many babies are born out of wedlock, how many babies are born with single parents. Just so you know that! I would think the Brand New American School would be year-round, open from 6:00 to 6:00.

A second characteristic might be that these schools will serve children from age 3 months old to age 18. That may be a shocking thought to you; but, if you were to do an inventory of every baby in your community and think about what the needs of those babies were for the next four or five years, you might see that those needs might not be served any other way.

They have to be served in some way and maybe around the school. Or, if you study a little more, you might go back and think the school might have to serve the pregnant mother of the baby in terms of prenatal healthcare….

…teams of teachers. Albert Shanker suggested that maybe there ought to be a team of teachers attached to a child from the day that child arrives in the school to stay with that child all the way to the 8th grade.

All this would mean there would have to be a very professional corps of teachers, wouldn’t it? They’d have to be very, very good because they would have to be dealing with lots of volunteers. We have a big national service feeling in America today. Why aren’t those people working in schools? Well, one reason is it’s hard to handle volunteers!

Please don’t be deceived! Alexander didn’t say these things because he cares about your children or their education. However what he does believe in is CONTROL of them! And the best start is with the babies without 2 parents and then move on to the rest.

 You are aware aren’t you that Florida has her first 24/7 Charter school? It’s something like a private school except tax dollars are paying another Charter School Management “cash cow”.

And since the Federal government has been pushing so hard for not only Charter schools but your babies in daycare from infancy until they enter kindergarten, they knew they would also be able to “SPY” on them through the data-mining process.

Well, it is here – all over the country and they are spying on each and every one of those classrooms – not to see if your child is being mistreated, but to see what they can learn about their homes, parents and family life in general to “re-direct” their thought processes.

Data Mining 2Go here to watch the video of Communist Shirley McCune at the same conference in 1989 explain her ideas about our children and their education. Scary!

 Just why do you think the government so willingly gave all that money to pay for free Pre-K daycare?

Recently, the National Science Foundation awarded a $4.8 million grant to several prominent research universities to advance the use of Big Data in the schools. Those funds by the way came from their annual budget of $7B of your hard earned tax dollars.

 “The project, dubbed “LearnSphere,” highlights the continued optimism that “big” educational data might be used to dramatically transform K-12 schooling. “It also raises new questions in the highly charged debate over student-data privacy. 

Some of us weren’t born yesterday so the fact this federally funded initiative will be led by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, who propose to construct a new data-sharing infrastructure that is distributed across multiple institutions, include third-party and for-profit vendors, comes as no surprise. 

What it should do is anger the heck out of you knowing they are using your money to work at spying on you. Also remember Carnegie has been in bed with pushing education control by the government since before 1934. 

“They” want you to believe that facilitating the sharing and analysis of this information is for research purposes and can lead to new insights about how humans learn, as well as rapid improvements to the digital learning software now flooding schools.”

Oh, and just so you are aware, the Gates-funded “galvanic skin response monitors” are back! Two years ago, it seemed to be a joke but it’s no joke. Researchers are still trying to gauge biometric reactions with sensors placed on students’ skin. 

It’s October – the time of year for witches and goblins and we do have a new monster!

The new MONSTER in the school is Teaching Strategies, LLC., or “TS Gold” and in Florida it has become “Teaching Strategies in Florida”, Florida’s Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Education Program Approved Kit.

Kind of looks like this is Florida’s replacement for iBloom!

Michelle Malkin has just let her followers know this is not something that is coming in the future; she is talking about a system that is set up right now.  Other such systems are now operating throughout the country.

TS Gold is busily collecting the most personal information possible from day-care centers/pre-schools/kindergartens and putting it into a data system (which is always vulnerable to being hacked).  Then it is being transmitted to third-party profit-mongers “who are after your child.”

People all over this country are beginning to catch on; many are fighting hard against Common Core. This is an issue that impacts families personally and has the power to destroy children and their future.  We as adults have the responsibility to protect our nation’s children because they are our leaders of the future.

Most states are not in full operation yet, but they are expected to be by the 2015-2016 year.  The full force plan is to cover your children from “birth” through “3rd” grade on this particular system.

What seems to never get quite explained to parents is “What are you intending on doing with all that information on my child and just what is your purpose for doing it?”

The creator’s state it is to be used as an “early assessment” tool in measuring the whole child to include “social, emotional, developmental, physical and cognitive”. Does this mean they are going to decide before they go into kindergarten if they will go to the working fields or college?

This program is totally aligned to the Common Core Standards (CCS) so that means “INDOCTRINATION” from the day they put their hands on our children. Oh, and you might like to know the “Race To The Top” $$ the government gave the grants out for to the states who played the game and according to the “feds” had nothing to do with CCS, is what some states are using to pay for this fiscal monster.

However, TS Gold also received $30M from the RTTT barrel – so we all paid up front!

To read the 2011-2014 Florida “Teaching Strategies GOLD Objectives for Development & Learning” Birth Through Kindergarten go HERE!

Data Mining 3 I am sorry I can’t give you the information for all states, but it is out there for you to find. “They” have been very quiet about this! I would hope you have had your anger raised to the point you will check out your state. Do you remember most of us were told there would be no “data mining” because iBloom was gone after spending the $100M they got from Gates Foundation and Carnegie Corp., (I told you they were bad).

If you go here, you can listen to a “training video” for TS Gold.

Last spring, parent Lauren Coker discovered that TS Gold assessors in her son’s Aurora, Colo., public preschool had recorded information about his trips to the bathroom, his hand-washing habits, and his ability to pull up his pants.

“When she asked if they could opt out of the system,” school officials told her “no.” She pulled her son out of the school and still doesn’t know if or how the data can be removed.

You will find that school officials will not tell you how the information is to be used; who it will be shared with, how long it will be stored or even why we are paying for the time the teacher is grilling the whole class rather than teaching?

Once again I remind you, the ultimate goal is not for improved school performance – it is for the meddling and profit for the Public-Private Partnerships that Obama gave the permission to by changing the FERPA laws. It is also about finding out things about their parents, siblings and general home life. CONTROL! “Cash Cows”!

These are considered “golden records” states Cheri Kiesecker who has fought against the student data mining in CO. She warns this information is to follow your child clear into college if he is lucky enough to get there.

Do you have any idea how much information about your children has been assessed that comes from outside the classroom and spread all over the world?

This is just another web in the Common Core spider and I hope the parents that haven’t been standing up fighting are really still standing up. Our children need someone to fight for them and stop this madness.

This war is not slowing down! Keep your kids home!

This is the scary thing depending on where you live:

  • The Family Center la familia in Fort Collins, CO – they see TS Gold as an “assessment tool enabling to increase their effectiveness. Even more worrisome is the President is a former dolphin trainer and then she went into Social Work.
  • Community School for People Under Six in Carboro, NC – the same company that makes TS Gold makes Creative Curriculum – this school claims the 2 programs allows them to promote their multi-cultural, community-based philosophy. It is CCS aligned. At times they use Americorp volunteers.
  • Collaborative for Educational Services, Northampton, MA – they are an instructional facility which is currently teaching how to us TS Gold.
  • Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County, Boynton Beach, FL – they state “Parents and providers can help enhance early childhood education in Palm Beach County by participating in a new pilot program.  Our Coalition is partnering with the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County in establishing Teaching Strategies GOLD®, an online tool to measure a child’s educational gains. The assessment captures data beginning at birth and continues accumulating it throughout the span of a child’s early education experience.”
  • Orange County, Florida Public School District, Orange County, FL – Teaching Strategies Gold (TSG) assessment: This is the research based birth through kindergarten assessment as shown under the Revision of the OCPS Demonstration Project Child Care Centers & School District Community Alignment Project 

You know what I can’t figure out? Why anyone would think a program used for “data mining” is a big deal just because it is “research based” 

What is the research based on to track pre-school children? This makes no sense except it is intrusive without parental permission and someone is making one heck of a lot of money doing it.

ALERT — Obama Signs Executive Order 13295 — Detain Or Quarantine Americans Who Merely Show Signs of “Respiratory Illness”

This is Psych War tactics – the purpose behind the EBOLA fear campaign is to get people vaccinated and the vaccinations are the REAL threat!  (The video of the CDC whistleblower on the MMR Vaccine which the CDC KNEW it caused autism – the CDC falsified the data in 2004). Our male children were the main targets!

 Be Safe Everyone – Keep Your Babies Safe!

This is REALLY getting bad, folks. SERIOUSLY B-A-D!

 

Ebola 2As the Ebola outbreak continues to cause concern, President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of “respiratory illness.”

 

The executive order, titled Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases, amends executive order 13295, passed by George W. Bush in April 2003, which allows for the, “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.”

 

The amendment signed by Obama replaces subsection (b) of the original Bush executive order which referred only to SARS. Obama’s amendment allows for the detention of Americans who display, “Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.

 

There is NO mention of EBOLA – so with so many Americans experiencing Bronchial and Lung distress, this leaves Americans wide open to massive detentions or widespread vaccinations of who knows what.

 

On Tuesday, October 2, 2014 the World Health Organization (WHO) reported there will be no vaccine available for EBOLA until at least the middle of 2015. They are working on 2 different vaccines of which both contain a portion of LIVE virus:

 

  • One of the vaccines, cAd3-ZEBOV, has been developed by GlaxoSmithKline in collaboration with the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. It uses a chimpanzee-derived adenovirus vector with an Ebola virus gene inserted.

 

  • The second, rVSV-ZEBOV, was developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada in Winnipeg. The license for commercialization of the Canadian vaccine is held by an American company, NewLink Genetics, located in Ames, Iowa. The vaccine uses an attenuated or weakened vesicular stomatitis virus, a pathogen found in livestock, replacing one of its genes with an Ebola virus gene.

 

Warning!  I personally NEVER take a vaccination made with a live virus and Senior’s and those with young children must be very careful when deciding on receiving a vaccination of which you have no idea what is in it. I did take the pneumonia vaccination which does NOT contain any live virus.

 

Additionally, the number of vaccine’s they have our children taking at such a young age is not only unreasonable, but child abuse.

 

In fact, if you home school, you can choose and pick which vaccines are safe for your children and if it was me – I would never give my child the MMR until almost to the age of 5 years old.

 

Ebola was listed on the original executive order signed by Bush, Obama’s amendment ensures that Americans who merely show signs of respiratory illness, with the exception of influenza, can be forcibly detained by medical authorities.

 

Although the quarantining of people suspected of being infected with the Ebola virus seems like a perfectly logical move, the actual preconditions for this to happen aren’t restricted to just those suffering from the disease.

 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has measures to put in place for dealing with an outbreak of a communicable disease which allow for the quarantine of “well persons” who “do not show symptoms” of the disease.

 

In addition, under the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act, public health authorities and governors would be given expanded police powers to seize control of communications devices, public and private property, as well as a host of other draconian measures in the event of a public health emergency.

 

When the legislation was introduced, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons warned that it “could turn governors into dictators.”

 

Yesterday it was reported that Emory University Hospital in Atlanta was set to receive a patient infected with Ebola. A hospital in Germany also accepted an infected patient earlier this week. Some critics have raised concerns about the risk of deliberately importing infected individuals into the west.

Although as sensitive human beings, we are concerned for the health of Ebola patients, but remember, they are contagious for days before they show any symptoms. So why would we leave ourselves open to transcontinental flyers?

 

Why aren’t they closing down all international flights until this is under control?

Be safe!
