Do We Protect Our Children Or Sexual Deviates? Part 7

Over the past four or so years, Americans have been witness to vicious media assaults on any group or business that goes against the politically-incorrect position on same sex-marriage and the gay agenda. Chick- Fil-A and Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson immediately come to mind; however, there have been other instances of state intervention against private businesses refusing to sell wedding cakes to same-sex couples as well. To put it simply, there is an obvious effort on the part of the left to demonize anyone who disagrees with the homosexual agenda and the argument being used is that disagreement with their ideals equates to hatred and bigotry.

Now we know the left loyal Supreme Court agrees with them and have tainted the

Constitution with their ruling using the Fourteenth Amendment Section I “no state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United State”. Hum? What about our rights?

Did they even look at the LGBT push within the walls of our public schools? Of course not! Everything federal and state governments are pushing and supporting regarding the education of our children in the year 2015 should be considered CHILD ABUSE.

Outside of the fact a large part of the country’s population believe the president is gay and that he has a man-wife, have you even thought about why the huge push for the GAY issue no matter what form it takes. No I am sure you haven’t because most hetero-sexual individuals unless they themselves are deviates of another sort, don’t publicize what they do in their bedroom and they certainly are not focused on teaching any kind of sex to our young children in school.
So where is this coming from? In Part 6 of this series I presented parts of the 45 Declared Goals of the Communist Manifesto – let me give them to you again:

 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

Are you aware as the battle against political correctness and the gay agenda continues, it should be noted that this is a fight that is occurring on a global scale as well. The New American is reporting on a story from Italy where the media has been exposed as forcing journalists to report on the gay lifestyle in a positive light or perhaps face consequences as harsh as jail time. What is most significant about this development is the fact that these mandates are coming from the superior European Union governing structure; they are being forced onto Italy’s government from a U.N. type global governing body.

This is no different than efforts made by Holder and the DOJ in 2013 to force acceptance of the gay life style in the American work place. A large number of Americans are “O.K.” with people being gay (myself included), as long as they don’t have it shoved down their throats, or as long as their sexual exploits stay where they should be, in their private lives. Holder and I am sure the president thought this wasn’t fair enough and that they needed to go one step further, stating if a straight person failed to make positive comments about a gay person’s lifestyle it was “discrimination”.

For me and this includes the president, Supreme Court and anyone else that is following the directive of the 45 Goals of the Communist Manifesto are just that – COMMUNISTS! Especially when they are using it to indoctrinate OUR children.
It is also following the United Nations directive to limit the growth of the world’s population. But then the U.N. is working under the 45 Goals too.

This is just another move as with the race issue to cause divide among Americans. By promoting homosexuality as normal, human beings are turned against one another in regard to their existence and procreation. It is self-destructive because if enough people are encouraged to be gay the growth of the human population will be limited.
One of the truths where the U.N. has been exposed regarding Agenda 21 is in their using abortion and family planning to achieve such ends.

Whatever is happening here, the left knew the homosexual agenda would tear America apart and at the same time reach their goals. Again I would like to state that the teaching of any LGBT or other sexual practices to our minor children in the schools is nothing less than CHILD ABUSE.

In #26 of the GOALS, by “Presenting homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy” you are also breaking down America’s Christian heritage and traditional morality.

Sexuality StandardsI want to remind you that we have in place the National Sexuality Education Standards which are aligned with the Common Core. There are parents still out there that are not aware these standards exist. It is one thing to teach our children about the basics of sexual health once they reach high school but to present to our children in grade K-8 information such as “you might be gay and not know it”; how to use a condom; what fisting is and supply materials to perform the act is CHILD ABUSE – AND – the schools are not required to ask the parent’s permission. But then how can the parent’s fight anything such as this in their schools if they are not even aware?

Remember: Common Core teaches students it is not fair for some students to highly achieve beyond the ability of their fellow students—it is about teaching students that everyone should achieve equally and collectively together, resulting in that students’ progress in learning at the lowest possible common denominator so no one is left behind. Again – communism.

I remember a video I watched by one of the instructors for teachers on the Common Core Math explaining yes the Math is different, but our goal is not that they get the answer right, but the how and why they got to the answer they have”. It is a “dumbing down” process. What good is it to know how to do Math or even how you got the answer if the answer is not right?

Our children were once taught how the Founding Fathers religious beliefs provided the foundation on which the Republic was founded on; the value of US Constitution, Bill of Rights and each Amendment. They no longer teach the value of individual rights or religious freedom.

“They” want that time taken up by the teaching of inappropriate sexual education courses for students K-12. This includes teaching inappropriate sexuality skills, that shouldn’t even be taught in college. Things such as beastality and chocking your partner during intercourse are not something the schools should be assuming to teach our children. Child psychologists are reporting children are not mentally equipped to understand detailed sexual indoctrination starting in kindergarten and that they are being indoctrinated in sexual practices that they should never be exposed to. Students are tested on their understanding of sex issues every year for the 12 years they are school, and the views for each student on sex issues are being tested, recorded, and retained by Washington bureaucrats.

There is a heavy socio political content of sex throughout the Common Core curriculum being taught in every grade especially in the English Language Arts and Math along with them being taught there is a sameness of gender, there is no longer simply boys and girls according to Common Core. Teachers are not trained to be teaching sex education so they are just following the curriculum as it is laid out. Parents are also being told they will NOT have the option of “opting” their child out of these classes as with the testing.

I previously wrote about how some of our SCHOOLS around the country have now taken on the agenda to not only teach our children Sex Education, but some states have and are teaching them about the LGBT life style. Fairfax County in Virginia has decided to include in the school curriculum lessons on sexual identity – no boys are 100% boys and no girls are 100% girls. They are free to determine what sex they are. So in actuality no matter what sex they are born, the school system is telling them they have the right at any age to choose what gender they want to be. And even those who have no “sexual confusion” are not ever completely one or the other because we are never 100 percent anything.

“Individual identity will also be described as having four parts – biological gender, gender identity (includes transgender), gender role, and sexual orientation (includes heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual).”

Oregon’s Dept. of Education has been supporting sex conferences for the past 20 years using taxpayer money which is meant to support sex education. However, now they are intending to endorse XXX-rated sex material such as Cyber and Phone Sex or perform sex acts while Skyping, Learning that “Dry Humping Saves Lives” and that “Meth is used for millions of reasons – to have lots of sex with lots of partners for long periods”. Learning how a condom is donned and how to make a dental dam. Those as young as 11 years old will gain the new instructions.

Keep in mind Oregon’s Dept. of Ed partners with Planned Parenthood as do most of the state Ed departments. Where the heck are the parents???

To remind America’s parents, included in the new National Sexuality Education Standards beginning in Kindergarten, they are going to begin teaching them about having 2 mommies or 2 daddies rather than a Mom and Dad.

Recently parents in Fairfax County confronted the school board members accusing them of “recommending” the “opt out” provision be removed from the county rules. Totally ignoring the parents wishes the board went on to approve the controversial changes in the curriculum with a vote of 10-2.

After learning to define heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality and gender identity in seventh grade, students in eighth grade will delve deeper into “individual identity.”

The eighth grade curriculum says individual identity will be described “as having four parts – biological gender, gender identity (includes transgender), gender role, and sexual orientation (including heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual).” In ninth grade, students will be taught that “sexuality evolves from infancy to old age.” By tenth grade, “Sexual orientation and gender identity terms will be discussed with focus on appreciation for individual differences.”
This should frighten the heck out of parents. School districts around the country are so intent on teaching about homosexuality except it is not specifically mandated by legislatures. At best they allowing societal norms to trump biology and at worse they are seeking to destroy the family through the teaching of lies.

As of February, 2015 you can go here to find the “State Policies on Sex Education in Schools” and it certainly does not match what is being taught. Most states do currently allow for parents to “Opt Out” their children from sex Ed.
So where is this coming from? The United Nations believes that by emphasizing rights and gender issues, these programs help reduce gender-based violence and bullying, promote safe schools, empower young people to advocate for their own rights, and advance gender equality.



Let’s remember it is the Federal government that has chosen to focus on Gay bullying and not bullying issues as a whole. This stemmed from Obama hiring Kevin Jennings as the very first “Safe School Czar who is himself a “flaming” gay male activist and the founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) which is the nation’s largest homosexual advocacy group focused entirely on reaching public school students as young as kindergarten age.
You should also know some of the financial supporters of GLSEN: AT&T, Merck, Citi, Google, Target, Mattel, IBM, Disney-ABC Television Group, Wells Fargo, Wal-Mart and Goldman Sachs.

The LGBT movement through our schools accelerated at a tremendous speed with Jennings in D.C. As the Executive Director of GLSEN, Jennings wrote the foreword to a book called Queering Elementary Education. Chapter titles include, “Locating a Place for Gay and Lesbian Themes in Elementary …” and “‘It’s Okay to be Gay’: Interrupting Straight Thinking in the English Classroom.”

Jennings admitted his objective was to use GLSEN to get messages into the public schools that would counter what he considered to be “homophobic” messages children received from families and churches.

Many in America are not aware that Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy was the “first gay justice” for writing Wednesday’s majority opinion in the Defense of Marriage Act case, after already writing the opinion in two other homosexual rights cases.

It is interesting to note how quickly things change in this country. In 2009, 53 Republican members of Congress demanded that President Obama fire Jennings writing that he was unfit for the job thanks to his playing “an integral role in promoting homosexuality and pushing a pro-homosexual agenda in America’s schools—an agenda that runs counter to the values that many parents desire to instill in their children.”

Now they are silent.

LGBT curriculum, tests and education to be used in the classroom can be downloaded from the internet by teachers and no one will ever know unless a student would tell their parents. Once again it is imperative you talk to your children and ask questions. Go back to the family sitting around the table for at least one meal a day.

In Jun, 2014, David Carter wrote an opinion piece for Time supporting the inclusion of gay rights in school textbooks and curriculum.

Maybe they should contact Tufts University in Boston, Mass. As far back as 2000, they supported a GLSEN conference at the university which was fully supported by the Mass. Dept. of Education under the Safe Schools Program and the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth.

My point in all this – we have never pointedly taught marriage between a man and a woman in the schools – those teaching came from their homes. And there point as one of those 45 Goals is #41 “Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.”- Conquer and divide – families, friends, neighbors and Americans as a whole.

Kevin Jennings Day of SilenceLast spring several of the schools in my state participated in “Day of Silence”, – a Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) annual day of action to spread awareness about the effects of the bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and their supporters.

I have 2 problems with this event:

  • Why are we once again focusing only on Gay bullying and not bullying in general?
  • There is no particular age of which this is directed at and you have GLSEN members going into the schools with their so called instructions.

I posted this information last spring on my Common Core Facebook page and had one guy you slammed me all over the place stating that by posting this information it was proof I was using Common Core to promote my gay homophobic agenda. What is it with this 3% of the country’s population that they are so nasty and ugly? And there is no talking to them rationally.

By the way – I never voiced any opinion about this event one way or the other – only reported it was happening and what it was.

And to all of you who choose to call out against anyone who speaks against the teaching to our of children LGBT or other sexual practices I refer you to Voltaire. –

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.”


Deceit Is In Place Everywhere and Your Children Are The Tools

In August 2010, former Governors Jeb Bush (FL) and Bob Wise (WVA) through the Foundation for Excellence in Education (FEE), convened the Digital Learning Council to develop the roadmap to integrate current and future technological innovations into public education.

The Digital Learning Council claims they brought together some of the brightest and most respected minds in the United States – all focused on working together to shape the principles and policies of digital learning. This diverse group of leaders hailed from education, government, philanthropy, business, technology and think tanks stating they came together to develop policy actions for local, state and federal lawmakers and policymakers to advance digital learning.

Over the course of five months, the Digital Learning Council met by virtual interaction more than 40 times and covered a wide range of topics, including: student eligibility for digital learning, access to high-quality digital content and instruction, customization and personalization of education such as blended learning, funding models, assessments and accountability.

PageFlorida’s personal Council was referred to as PAGE or Parents Advancing Global Education – Florida 2.0 Digital Learning – The Page Plan Statewide Digital Village. Co-founders were listed as:

 Kim J. Kendall (who run for Thrasher’s seat after he was chosen as the president of Florida State University) who was appointed to serve on the Florida Commissioner of Education’s “Florida 2.0 Digital Learning Group” in the Spring of 2012 which is focused on bringing digital reform to all of Florida’s students. She states she worked on bringing our Florida students into the digital age and finding funding without dipping into the budget! She has served on several committees relating to education.

 Jill Flores is a certified Elementary Education teacher in Florida. She has taught the 5th grade as a Language Arts/Reading teacher for the Duval County School District and is currently supporting the Duval County School District as a Media Specialist. With two children in the public school system, Flores is driven to help the state of Florida transform our education to compete at a global level.

Both women reside in St. John’s County Florida. No others were listed as being a part of this “team” in the beginning. FEE was working behind closed doors through the Florida State Board of Education.



To remind my readers, St. John’s County is where the School Board member Beverly Slough is from – she is the one who sat down to talk to me about how she felt the Common Core Standards were a ‘disaster’ to our children’s education – 4 hours of talking about the disaster of Florida’s education to have her turn around and totally support it. And her married to a minister!

As a parent, I do have to question their reasoning and idea’s in regard to GLOBAL education since there still have NOT been any comparison studies done from one state to another let alone those countries we are supposed to be held up to that justifies our children being in front of a computer for hours every day under a “digital learning atmosphere” no the spending it requires.

Reminder – China, Finland and other countries we are supposed to be learning from are now beginning to forgo some of the things we are being told to use to bring us up to a global standard.

Today, it is very difficult to find any documentation or web site connections to PAGE – the term and logo have been removed and it would seem all is being done entirely through FEE – Jeb Bush’s world. It matters not that he has resigned from all boards including FEE to run for president. He has left behind another traitor – Condoleezza Rice to run things for him in his absence.

As a result of the FEE’s Council’s efforts, the 10 Elements of High-Quality Digital Learning, along with suggested actions for lawmakers, was released on December 1, 2010 at the National Summit on Education Reform in Washington, D.C. Be sure to visit this web site and look under all the rocks (tabs) to gain an even larger big picture.

On May 29, 2012 the following PAGE symposium was presented:
Part 1 http://youtu.be/T0i-mhjhoSA Gov. Scott speaks
Part 2 http://youtu.be/VWvqLRVt4w4 Explaining how Moorseville, NC implemented total virtual in their school in conjunction with Pearson
Part 3 http://youtu.be/Y6ev0oe_764 Per business double-speak
Part 4 http://youtu.be/CnbdE7UqP6Q Pearson lingo – Global Education

It never ceases to amaze me the character and/or fact the number of people spinning out our children’s education are NOT educators.

Please take the time to slip in under the ‘Board Corner” tab and read the words of non-parent now Chairperson of FEE Condoleezza Rice explain why we should be looking at a high quality education as a “civil rights struggle”.

She will tell you that “70 percent of people born into low-income households will remain at that income level” because the ‘corporate’ side of innovative and dynamic economy is in jeopardy.

“This dynamic is not only dragging down our citizens but also compromising our future economic prosperity, global position, and national security (this bringing you to the report put out in 2012 by Joel Klein and Rice stating our children’s education should be overseen by the Council on Foreign Relations).

No comments as to hold those in Washington, D.C. or their individual state legislators responsible for playing Russian Roulette with our children’s education for years. No mention of the likes of Marc Tucker and his educational ideas leading America to “COLLECTIVISM/ TOTALITARISM” versus “INDIVIDUALISM through the indoctrination of our children thru education.

Isn’t it interesting how the so called “Conservative” men and women of America now feel comfortable enough to ‘come out’ as they say, and show their true colors as to the goals that have been set for America.

Re-working our Constitution, to totally remove the Bill of Rights and what is left is a country of collective sheep, working the fields for the Political Prostitutes and Corporate Whores.

If we don’t wake up soon, the only enjoyment we just might have in the future is watching the ‘feeding frenzy’ when they are all fighting for the top positions and killing each other off.

You thought all you have heard about the Third Reich was horrid – imagine what it is going to be like with all the new technology and advanced weapons they plan to use on you and yours.


Still Falling for the Republican Games? They Aren’t Conservative!

It’s 5:01 A.M. – and all is not right with the world! Satan is marching foot loose and fancy free and you can’t sleep.

You toss, turn and finally decide to get up because your brain will not stop! Is it God tapping on your mind – I like to think so, for when I find I need to sleep he softly touches me and says, “Sleep child, the day has been long!”


God is Crying! His people are wandering in a world of self – “It’s all about me”!

Over the past 24 hours California has had over 100 earthquakes from 0.6 – 4.1. Michigan of all places had one this month at 4.2.; at 4:45 am today 5/22 Maine had a rare 2.1 quake; and over the past 48 hours the whole of the West coast of the United States has moved on at least a 4.0 magnitude level or greater.  A large share of these is natural especially all the ones they have had in Nepal, but the man-made induced ones are a serious concern. An April 2015 a USGS report found the increase in seismicity has been found to coincide with the injection of wastewater in deep disposal wells in several locations, including Colorado, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Ohio.

Much of this wastewater is a byproduct of oil and gas production and is routinely disposed of by injection into wells specifically designed and approved for this purpose. It’s called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”. Things are moving.

Political ProstitutesI now know our elected officials are “Political Prostitutes” (PP) continuing to waste our money and pass legislation to push forward their massive lie regarding Global Warming. Now all over the country individual community unelected city and county councils are trying to gain control over all our water.
I refer to their corporate buddies in crime as “corporate whores” whose greed has taken over their very being demanding control of every aspect of our lives.

I know morality and values were this country’s greatest strength – John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”. I don’t care what the atheists are trying to make you believe. This country was founded on Godly teaching which is why it was one of the main things the Communists knew they had to change – our morals and values.

The United States of America is now a dictatorship because our PP have over the years deliberately set us up not as a country, but a mass of corporations from every town, village, city, county, state – including the federal government! You ask why the elected ones are not following the Constitution – they work for us? No they don’t – they haven’t since 1871.

I know the difference between “The Constitution of the united states of America” (a republic) and “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” (a corporation) because when I went to school they still taught us how to learn – not to be indoctrinated.

I know Congress committed TREASON against the People, who were considered Sovereign under the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. I also know that every elected PP since them has at some point learned we are not operating as a Republic.

I know we have allowed ourselves to be manipulated and indoctrinated into the touchy-feely world believing what we want is far more important than what we need.

I know God has become an afterthought only to remembered when we need something.

I know we have clergy with yellow stripes running down their backs because they don’t preach the truth of what is happening for fear of losing donations from some heavy donating liberal.

I know we have clergy who are preaching a “prosperity” form of religion and oh how Jesus hated the money changers. They distort the words of the bible to suit whatever social agenda comes along even to the point of trying to convince we Christians we pray to the same God as Muslims.

I know Evil has overtaken country not to mention the world as a whole. It is hanging over us like a deep, dark veil with a stink that burns your very soul.

I know Barack Hussein Obama is NOT the Chosen One – he just thinks he is! He is a puppet as most PP’s are.

Our world is being dominated by corrupt MEN/WOMEN whose only focus in life is MONEY – POWER – CONTROL! I almost want to still be alive to watch as they try to take over the world in their New World Order and self-destruct while fighting to see who will be on top – all of these political prostitutes and corporate whores cannot be in control at the same time. It will be like an eating frenzy.

I know these individuals and more like them are liars by their actions and the words they speak! Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Dick Armey, Colin Powell, Jeb Bush, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Clinton’s Newt Gingrich, Dick Chaney, Condoleezza Rice, governors and elected legislators and many others– are evil, some so deeply ingrained in the worship of Lucifer they no longer can see any light! Their eyes are dull and their smiles tainted.

But they will certainly try to get your support and/or vote by telling you they are Christian and Conservative. But they are liars!

I know most Minister’s, Priest’s and Rabbis are following a false God called 501 (c) (3) not willing to stand-up and speak out for HIM who they are supposed to be serving or those whom they are to be guiding and leading – look at Rick Warren – Joel Osteen and many others. The Jesuit Pope – listen to what is coming out of his mouth!
I know Islam is evil and their GOD is nothing like my GOD as Rick Warren would have you believe – my GOD does not wish all those who do not believe in HIM should be dead. Jesus never ask his people to murder those who don’t believe in him just because they don’t believe – if that were true there wouldn’t be any Jews alive today.
Always remember when they talk about honoring Islam as a religion and Sharia the enforcing part of that religion – Islam is NOT a religion but a social and political ideology. A way of life so to speak.

Many so called conservatives co-opted the initial intentions of the Tea Party movement – I guess it was easier to let others decide what we were all about! Many of those groups are funded by those who are actually our foes in “sheep’s clothing” – others are just plain greedy taking our donations in masses to live “high on the hog”.

Where do you stand? Are you awake? Have you fallen into the neo-con phony world of so called conservatives? Are you buying into a temporary fix rather than a total repair? We worked ourselves to death to get the Congress majority to Republican and they have done NOTHING to protect the American people, but have continually gone along with Obama and the left and refused to defund his policies and activities.

Do you still believe if a republican candidate tells you he is a conservative and loves God you believe him without checking him or her out?

Is your next updated cell phone more important than the communist actions that have stolen your constitutional liberties? Is family important to you or just a bothersome detail?

Are you a sheeple or a God fearing, Constitution loving, stand-up American who will do everything in your power to preserve and defend the United States of America?

What are “sheeple”? A term referring to Americans used to describe those who voluntarily acquiesce to a suggestion without critical analysis or research; easily led; refuse to listen to the truth with facts; actions lead to the destruction of the country.


I personally will not accept anything less nor should you – no excuses – anyone elected to any office in this country will have to PROVE to me they are a God fearing, Constitutional trusting individuals – all are politicians, with the exception of about six I can name and are currently speaking “double-speak” and that is nothing but lies!

Example – we have 3 men – governors – who whole heartedly were out there supporting the Common Core Standards and Jeb Bush, but now that they have decided to throw their 2 cents into the Presidential ring – they have recanted to give the appearance they are now on the side of all the parents who have been fighting this monster.  Mike Huckabee – the most disgusting as a supposed man of God; Scott Walker and Bobby Jindal.

Example – Ted Cruz has been talking a good talk, but what about his past and that of his wife? It is a proven fact that many “first” ladies have had a lot of influence on what comes out of the White House. Is he another Republican plant? A good-looking talker who for you, always seems to say the right things at the right times?
If you are awake and learning you know the Bush Dynasty are liars and crooks – this is where you first heard about a New World Order and got the beginnings of ruining your children through their education not to mention the Global Warming Lies – G.H.W.B.!

Cruz spent a good portion of his early career working for President George W. Bush — first as a legal policy adviser to the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2000, then as part of the recount team in Florida (remember that election?). He was the Department of Justice coordinator for the Bush-Cheney transition team and then spent six months as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the DOJ. But his longest stretch of work for Bush was at the Federal Trade Commission from 2001-03 at the Office of Policy Planning as the director. In 2003 he left to become the Solicitor General of Texas on Bush’s recommendation.

Cruz was a relatively unknown when he ran for the Senate and had spent the last several years writing op-eds and making speeches for conservative think tanks. Few knew much about him; he’d held some appointments at the federal level, courtesy of Bush, and been Texas solicitor general—but aside from the most superficial resemblance to Tea Party crush Marco Rubio, that was about it as far as his credentials went. Cruz had never run for any office, but he’d spent a lot of time with the hard right.

I heard the statement made “Oh he’s a good guy – his father is a minister”. Our ministers today are not all “good guys” having been rather taken by the almighty $$.

If you are beginning to wake up you will see has been a political star of the Bush family as he was not that well-known in Texas when he decided to run for office. George W. Bush was the first to give him a huge endorsement and then had the added assistance of George P. Bush (Jeb’s son) in pulling in the Hispanic Republicans of Texas.

His wife, Heidi Cruz, has worked at the investment banking firm of Merrill Lynch since 2005 and will take a leave of absence to campaign with her husband. Heidi Cruz also has a formidable political résumé. She previously was the director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council and worked at the Treasury Department. She graduated from Harvard Business School and Claremont McKenna College.

Heidi was an active member of the Council on Foreign Relations until June, 2011 on a 5-year “term membership” program.

Her time at the CFR cannot go unnoticed as during her term at the CFR Heidi Cruz served on a task force that in 2005 wrote “Building a North American Community,” a report from CFR on relations between the United States, Mexico and Canada which in actuality they were referring to the work to put in place the “North American Union” (NAU) a baby George W. Bush was heavily pushing and Obama has now taken up the reigns.

Heidi’s bio on this report states: HEIDI S. CRUZ* is an energy investment banker with Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas. She served in the Bush White House under Dr. Condoleezza Rice as the Economic Director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council, as the Director of the Latin America Office at the U.S. Treasury Department, and as Special Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, U.S. Trade Representative. Prior to government service, Ms. Cruz was an investment banker with J.P. Morgan in New York City.

There is also a notation on the document – Note: Task Force members participate in their individual and not institutional capacities. * The individual has endorsed the report and submitted an additional or a dissenting view.

This is no small matter – you cannot serve on a task force and help write something as important as this and not believe in what you are doing. I don’t care what anyone says. You cannot serve more than one master!

The real danger here folks is once again our elected “prostitutes” have gotten in bed with big corporations, seeking to serve multi-national business interests aligned to the fast-track authority to push through Congress without debate or amendments anything regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TIP) which when put in place will be an even bigger job killer of America than NAFTA ever thought off. The NAU is part of this along with the future New World Order.


After all the free information passed along to friends and foes – many still do not want to know or hear the truth – choosing rather to ignore the information thinking it will all go away and they won’t have to deal with it.
“THEY” chose our children to be used as the main tool in the destruction of America and most of our future leaders have had the Communist education fed to them.

“THEY” are monitoring everything we do, say, buy, sell!

“THEY” are adding GMO’s to our baby foods and nearly all of our infant formula, including every one of the millions of bottles distributed free by the government. Gerber, Kellogg, Wal-Mart brands contain genetically engineered corn or soy, as well as milk from cows injected by bovine growth hormone.

“THEY”, Monsanto knows infants and young children are more sensitive to the toxins found in GMOs and they are weakening their immune systems.

“THEY” are creating vaccinations which are killing and/or leaving our children with weak immune systems and at the very least Autistic – a proven medical fact. Why is it when one child is murdered by a violent person, as a culture, we put forth anger, hatred, and punishment towards such a sick person. Yet when there is documented evidence that proves, beyond any doubt, that hundreds, and likely thousands of infants, are murdered every year by vaccines in this country, we consider it to be good public policy?

Our children are being given RFID’s by the schools to monitor them – are we in NAZI Germany?

Our children are singing songs wishing people who are against Obama or Mother Earth would die! They have been taught the animals are more important than humans!

What kind of a nation have we become that our people are so indoctrinated and brainwashed they will not even do their own research to know for a fact that every Communist country has always killed three-quarters of the people by first taking their guns and the other quarter spend the rest of their lives as “worker-bees”!
We do not protest when our President tells us we are to “honor” the UN when they are the force behind our destruction!

The political parties have ruined this country! The only difference between the 2 political parties is their names. They are friends in war!

If you are a Politician you cannot be God fearing or support the original Constitution!

Lucifer will lose and the timing is all up to us! I have learned far too much!

If I will still be alive when Christ returns to enjoy the glory; if Ian will be able to realize the dream he has had since he was 4 years old; if Liam will be able to grow up in the America I knew that was God loving and Constitution respecting; if our grandchildren have paid enough attention to what we have told them and if we are part of the 9% who will have to participate in civil war to save America!

Wake Up America! Stop being sugar-fed by these politicians who “seem” to say the right things at the right time just when you need the reassurance they care about you. They don’t!


Wow – I am back and more!

SickI have really missed posting but I have really been sick! I would like to mark the reason for my month long illness to Chemtrails, but I have no proof other than they have been hitting the Orlando skies like crazy for the past 6 months, I guess I can’t do that. Please naysayers don’t dispute the evidence of Chemtrails especially since the government and the businesses paying for it now admit – yes we are spraying all kinds of gunk all over us and the food we eat.

Even most dogs are smart enough they don’t want to go out on the days they are spraying.

It first started out as a simple cold, very tired and a lot of sleeping. Two days later I had a hard time breathing and was coughing like I had never coughed in my life. Severe Bronchitis – and I have been allergic to Penicillin since the age of 19 which was discovered when I had strep throat.

Now after having gone through 2 artificial antibiotics and being no better, everything advanced to a sinus infection and now Bronchial Pneumonia. I absolutely hate being sick and I make the worst patient ever. I am almost never idle and being sick like this really puts me down. So antibiotics 3 and 4 might have worked except I couldn’t keep them down – instructions say to take them with food and I did – but that didn’t help at all.  Fortunately # 5 is working, but I have been down for a solid month and to my knowledge had not been around anyone who had been sick.

I am sure you know what they are spraying out of those chemtrail planes. Aluminium is the big thing and I suggest you learn to do some research and look up what that can do to especially if you ingest it over a long period of time. I have to wonder about the pilots who fly those planes – it all goes back to money – it always does or it is that along with no conscience

Battelle 1The planes are outfitted with huge tanks inside with hold the liquid. Aluminum, barium and other elements have been found to be up to thousands of times higher than normal limits. Such high quantities lead to unhealthy PH levels in the soil which can be deadly to ecological life systems.

These shocking results led to additional testing around the country in the soil and mountain streams that have tested over 4,610 times the maximum contamination level of aluminum allowed in drinking water in the state of California. Also, peer reviewed scientific studies conclude that bio-available aluminum, now found in huge quantities in rain world-wide, is very harmful to flora and thus the eco-system. If it is being sprayed it is also falling on the crops we eat.

Symptoms can be burning eyes, migraine headaches, anxiety, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and other health problems on days that airplanes are allegedly witnessed spraying aerosols in the sky.

It isn’t bad enough that Monsanto is using it’s Roundup on everything in sight and the only large country still allowing the use of Roundup is the United States.

According to a press story, community after community continue to report that hundreds of people are becoming ill at the same time-usually following heavy chemtrail activity. Three physicians reported an increasing number of patients being seen for similar illnesses.

“Persistent hacking coughs, upper respiratory and intestinal distress, pneumonia, extreme fatigue, lethargy, dizziness, disorientation, splitting headaches, elevated arthritis symptoms and unexplainable nosebleeds are just a few of the symptoms these doctors have described. The doctors have said they are seeing larger numbers of patients with these complaints during or within days after the times that the physicians themselves have observed a larger number of chemtrails in the skies above mountain communities.”

Pharmacist Ed Burrows is sick himself. Since early December he has been suffering from a respiratory ailment that has includes a “gooey phlegm” that, despite his best efforts, he has been unable to relieve. Burrows said the issue is raising “high concern” for him that his health may be “jeopardized.” Burrows says he “feels that it is directly related” to recent chemtrail activity.

The world population being lied to…“Our government’s refusal to level with the people indicates that whatever it is they are polluting our environment with must be dangerous and/or unhealthy. There is no need to be secretive if what you are doing is beneficial,” he says. “As the former owner and pharmacist of the Lake Gregory Pharmacy for more than two decades, this is the first time in those 22 years in which I’ve witnessed so many in our community suffering with respiratory ailments with no apparent cause… ”

Yet at the same time the government is spending our money on Agenda 21 telling us, we are responsible for global warming. The spraying is helping to bring the haze you so often see in the sky any more. The sky is not that vivid blue we have been used to but the change has been so slow and subtle most people are not even noticing the difference. The sun is also not shining like it used to.

Please listen to this video – they have done some very extensive research – “Geoengineering and the Collapse of Earth 2014″.   Everyone should go to this website and learn!

If you truly are trying NOT to believe what I am telling you and that our government is aligned with this monster, please read this 1966 document – “A Recommended National Program In Weather Modification A Report to the Interdepartmental Committee for Atmospheric Sciences” by Homer E. Newell.

And back to Monsanto for a moment. Proof of the dangers of “Roundup” which is used on almost all of our crops and those around the world have now been proved to be responsible for the increase of many different diseases.

gLYPHOSATEOur lawmakers are making it EASIER for big companies to HIDE their GMO products from consumers. As we learn from one doctor at MIT, this GMO craze could cost a lot of children their health. MIT Dr. Stephanie Seneff links the increase of the Autism Spike. In her recent article she makes a very stark warning that by the year 2025, half of all American children born in 2025 could have autism. That’s an alarming increase over one decade. As the new Congress kicks off in Washington, one of the biggest agenda items on the table will be how much money and how much power the FDA and Department of Agriculture will have at their disposal. We’ve already seen signs in the new spending bill that indicate lawmakers want to make it EASIER for big companies to HIDE their GMO products from consumers.

gLYPHOSATE AND aUTISMDr. Seneff noted the ubiquity of glyphosate’s use. Because it is used on corn and soy, all soft drinks and candies sweetened with corn syrup and all chips and cereals that contain soy fillers have small amounts of glyphosate in them, as do our beef and poultry since cattle and chicken are fed GMO corn or soy. Wheat is often sprayed with Roundup just prior to being harvested, which means that all non-organic bread and wheat products would also be sources of glyphosate toxicity. The amount of glyphosate in each product may not be large, but the cumulative effect (especially with as much processed food as Americans eat) could be devastating. A recent study shows that pregnant women living near farms where pesticides are applied have a 60% increased risk of children having an autism spectrum disorder.

You may recall our story on the CDC whistleblower who revealed the government’s deliberate concealment of the link between the MMR vaccine (for measles, mumps, and rubella) (does have glyphosate’s) and a sharply increased risk of autism, particularly in African-American boys. Other studies now show a link between children’s exposure to pesticides and autism. Children who live in homes with vinyl floors, which can emit phthalate chemicals, are more likely to have autism. Children whose mothers smoked were also twice as likely to have autism. Research now acknowledges that environmental contaminants such as PCBs, PBDEs, and mercury can alter brain neuron functioning even before a child is born.

Please do your research – the information is out there – know what is going into your food, vaccinations, fertilizers, especially when it comes to our babies! Life is hard enough without our own government through corporations for financial and political gains

Editors Note: Never ever forget that Common Core is Child Abuse!

Can you add the numbers 17 and 15?

If you are like most adults, you write the number 17, put the number 15 below it, add the ones column to get 12, write the 2 in the ones column, carry the 10, add the tens column to get 30, and write the 3 in the tens column.  The answer is 32.
Math 3
You learned that process in about the second grade.

But according to the PARCC Model Curriculum, our children do not have to be able to do this until Grade 4.  At the same time, we are told that Common Core is “more rigorous” than the math that preceded it.

The obvious question is, how can the math be more rigorous if the concepts must be learned up to two years later?  What are our kids doing in those extra two years?

Common Core math is not more rigorous, it is just more complicated.

The children are not taught the simplest and most direct way to solve a problem, called the standard algorithm, and then provided with adequate practice opportunities to master that process completely.  Instead they are simultaneously presented with a variety of options to solve the problem, many of which require levels of understanding that do not yet exist in their minds, such as the “add from the left” method.

The first result is confusion.

At first, the students don’t know how to do any of the methods being presented to them, so they have no yardstick…

to use to evaluate each method to discover which is the most effective.  They don’t receive adequate practice in any one method so they don’t actually reach mastery of it.  They are forced to attempt methods which make no sense to minds operating at a concrete operational level.  And they can’t turn to their parents for help since their parents were never subjected to this type of math instruction.

The second result is frustration.

Because the standard algorithms in math were designed to provide the most simple and direct method for solving problems, students who learned them succeeded.  They were given a task that they could accomplish and adequate practice to master the steps.  As a result, they actually did solve the problems, experiencing the positive feedback that comes from success.

But in Common Core classrooms, and in homes struggling to complete Common Core math homework assignments, success is not the norm.  Instead, children struggle through the confusing assignments, not really understanding what they are doing, and not ever truly succeeding.  When children are consistently placed in this situation, frustration is the inevitable outcome.

In the end, the children call themselves failures.  They can’t do the task that has been presented to them, and they can’t conceive of a world in which the grown-ups could be wrong.  So if things aren’t going well, the only possible explanation is that they themselves are stupid.

Tragically, this statement is now echoing across the elementary classrooms of America.
Children of the Core

If the goal of Common Core is to destroy, not only the mathematical achievement of our children, but their self-esteem as well, then it is succeeding beyond any expectations.  If such destruction was not the goal, then a reasonable person might wonder why anyone would continue to defend a program that is shredding the self-image of America’s little ones.

Dr. Peg Luksik is a teacher with over 35 years of experience in both special and elementary education, and a former advisor to the U.S. Department of Education. She has extensive experience in assessments in a classroom setting and has written and evaluated curriculum, as well as authoring several books on education issues.


A Discussion of the Issues With the Common Core Mathematics Standards

By James Milgram, Professor of Mathematics, Emeritus – 

Dept. of Mathematics – Stanford University, Stanford CA

Dr. Milgram has written this for all to see what the whole process was in developing the Mathematics Standards for the Common Core, the players and the deceit within.


Eighteen years ago we were 5 years in on using the old CA math standards that had been approved in 1992.  The lead author of those standards was a guy by the name of Phil Daro.  The most important thing about those standards – they weren’t mathematics standards at all – they were all about motivations and what it is mathematicians do but Phil Daro has no background in math and hasn’t a clue about what mathematicians actually do.

Here’s what happened.  In 1992, when we started with those standards, CA math outcomes were in the middle of the pack among all the states, which is reasonable since it’s by far the largest state by population with about 13% of the United States total population.  But, by 1996, four years in, CA had dropped to 49th in the country!  Later, in the early 2000s, Daro initially headed up the teams revising the Georgia and New Jersey mathematics standards, and the results were so bad that both sets of standards had to be entirely redone by others.

So there we were with those terrible standards.  There was some mathematical content in them but much of it was simply incorrect, and the majority of the discussion was about pedagogy, not content.  As a consequence, the programs that were written to align with these standards, programs like Mathland, and TERC’s Connected Mathematics series seemed to actually be lowering student outcomes.  So the California State Board of Education requested that I, together with three of my colleagues in the Stanford Department of Mathematics create new California mathematics standards – which we did.  It took all of 2 weeks and these new standards were adopted by California in 1997-98.

For about the next 10 years they were generally regarded as the best mathematics standards in the country.  And California really made progress with the standards, the new aligned curricula, and the newly designed tests and measures of achievement that also aligned with them.

We were definitely recovering from the 1992 disaster and kids were beginning to show real progress – and most, across all ethnicities and SES levels were learning mathematics at a level that was very close to what is expected internationally.  It had taken a while to get there but that’s what was happening.

After our work on the California mathematics standards, I had been asked to help out writing standards in other states, and by 2004-2005 I think I was pretty much regarded as the country’s leading expert on mathematics standards.

Then the Common Core project came along in 2009.  At that point I was trying to distance myself from education issues and get back to actually doing mathematics, so I didn’t think much about Common Core.  Indeed, even though I had been appointed to the reviewing team for the mathematics standards, I was not intending to participate in their development.

However, out of the blue, I received this invitation inviting me to be one of the members of the Validation Committee for the new standards.  The role of the Validation Committee was described as overseeing the development of the standards, verifying all the research that was supposed to underlie them, and, if necessary, rewriting sections of the document.  Basically we were charged with overseeing the entire development of the standards.  This was something so important that I did not feel I could turn it down, so I agreed to serve.

Initially, there were about 25 members of Validation.  Since I was the only content expert in mathematics in the group, I focused almost exclusively on the mathematics standards, and I believe the entire group acknowledged that I was the logical person to oversee the day to day development of the standards.

As I said above, Phil Daro was responsible for the 1992 CA standards, but, in spite of their terrible quality, he was appointed to be one of the three lead authors for the Common Core mathematics standards along with two other people, William McCallum and Jason Zimba, who both had Ph.D’s in mathematics, but had no experience with K-12 mathematics standards and the pitfalls that had to be avoided.  So, to all intents, it appears that Daro was responsible for the level and the philosophy underlying the Common Core document.

Consequently, it should come as no surprise that the Common Core mathematics standards are very low level indeed – at least 2 full years behind international expectations by the eighth grade – and they have the same underlying philosophy and are focused in the same way as the disastrous California 1992 standards.  Moreover, the same curricula that we got rid of in 1998-2000 in California are now reappearing claiming to be entirely aligned with Common Core.  Consequently, the most likely way the implementation of these standards will play out is exactly the way the 1992 California standards did, something that cannot be regarded as encouraging.

Indeed, when we put together the 97-98 standards we introduced new tests in CA and those tests were in place from 1999 until 2012.  This gave us a huge data set of nationally normed outcome data and most of it was in the public domain.  Consequently, I was easily able to access it.  Some years back I asked myself this question: “How long would it take for a student initially in the Phil Daro 1992 program before its low level and erroneous perspective on mathematics would have produced irreversible damage?”  What the data showed was that if a student had been in that program for four or more years – that is to say they had already entered K-12 by 1993 – statistically they never recovered – They were always lagging behind their compatriots who had been in programs aligned with the much more mathematically reasonable program that we had introduced – And they never matched up.  Those students who had been in the Daro program for only 1-2 years recovered pretty quickly. Those with three years took longer, but they appeared to reach a high enough level after sufficient time had elapsed.

So you have a situation with the Common Core mathematics standards where you have a limited window and you pretty much know what’s going to happen.  You know because the guiding ideas behind it are the exact guiding ideas behind the 1992 CA standards.

So I’ve been there – I’ve heard all the verbiage.  All of the explanations these people have for how wonderful these ideas are and how much they’ll help kids.  Those were the exact statements I was hearing consistently from 1992-1998 and the same program that we were using then that had been put in CA are the programs that are now labeled Common Core aligned and are reappearing.  Chief among them at the high school level is a program called College Preparatory Mathematics, CPM for short, while TERC’s Connected Mathematics Program, CMP, is being widely touted for it’s alignment with Common Core for grades K – 8.

So it isn’t that I am guessing – I’m not guessing – I know what’s going to happen and it’s just going be an unmitigated disaster – But now it will be across the entire country.

The above was by way of introduction.  We need to return to the work of the Validation Committee to see why the well designed plans for truly first rate national math standards fell apart so badly.

The first draft of the Common Core mathematics standards came out in October, 2009, and, aside from all the usual problems one expects in a first draft, they completely stopped with just Algebra I, which was, moreover, moved from the eighth grade to ninth.  In the high achieving countries, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II are compulsory and are taught in grades seven through nine.  In China, for the last 8 or 10 years, they’ve even added a course in “algorithms” to that list.  This is a quite high level course in computers and computer programming.  So this is the normal background of kids in the high achieving countries entering their last two years in high school.

Besides the material above, in about half of the high achieving countries, calculus is required for high school graduation.  Moreover, in all the high achieving countries over 90% of the population are high school graduates.  These numbers are so large that we have to conclude that virtually all kids are capable of learning mathematics to this level, but here, the initial draft of the Common Core mathematics standards stopped with Algebra I in ninth grade.

Data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the department in the US Department of Education responsible for education data and statistics, shows that in 1992, a student with just an Algebra I course would have only a 7% chance of ever obtaining a 4 year college degree, and there is no rational way that such a background could possibly be declared college ready.  But college and career ready was the announced goal of the Common Core Standards!  Clearly, there was a huge disconnect here.

Since I was the only content expert on Validation, it seemed entirely reasonable that I would focus on the mathematics standards and try to bring the level of these standards as close as possible to the actual expectations in the high achieving countries, and I had long discussions with McCallum and Zimba (but not Daro) about these issues.  My impression was that they fully agreed, but it appeared that their hands were tied, and I had to discuss these concerns with the leaders of Achieve.

So I spend most of a day showing these people the relevant standards for countries like China, South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore as well as the conclusions of the report of the National Mathematics Panel on the essential topics that needed to be present in K-12 algebra, and shortly afterwards it appears that they gave the Common Core writing team permission to include a limited amount of geometry and second year algebra in the document.  Based on this, it seemed reasonable to assume that the end result would be a document that would have a (non-compulsory) path to calculus in it, something that would match up adequately with international expectations.

But shortly after that the members of Validation received a note from higher up the ladder stating that we no longer would be permitted to “interfere” in the work of the writing group, nor would be be able to explicitly vet the “validating” research for the individual standards, or revise and rewrite portions of the document.  All that was allowed would be for us to sign a letter asserting that the standards were excellent, and benchmarked to the highest international expectations.  There were no provisions for those of us who would not sign that letter.

However, I and 4 other members refused to sign the letter.  My reasons were simply that I could not sign something asserting facts I knew to be incorrect.

Moreover, during that same time frame both McCallum and Zimba, in public testimony clearly indicated that they also believed the standards were unacceptably low.  (To be fair, this occurred while they still believed that they would be allowed to include a pathway to calculus, and both of them mentioned that this pathway was going to fix their issues.  But, while this pathway was strongly hinted at in the drafts between January 2010 and May, 2010, it is completely missing in the final document which was released in June, 2010.)  After June 2010, they tried to suppress their previous remarks, but, none the less, those remarks are in the public record.

It is also worth noting that even with the added material ending with a weak version of Algebra II, if a student stopped with just the material in the final version of the common core standards, then there would be a less than a 40% chance of ever obtaining a college degree in any area, and if a student with only that background wished to major in a STEM area, there would only be a 2.1% chance (1 in 50) of an actual degree in STEM.

But besides this, there has been no analysis of the evidence supporting the standards as written, and, to my knowledge there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that things like the approach to geometry there will simply not work.  Indeed, the Common Core approach is almost identical to an approach that was tried in the old USSR, though there it was limited to their strongest students.  In spite of this, it was a disaster and was rapidly abandoned.  Other areas where there are severe problems are (1) the crucial sixth and seventh grade material on ratios, rates, proportions and percents, where there are outright errors in the standards, besides the fact that this material is placed at least two years behind the grade level expectations in the high achieving countries, and (2) the handling of vectors and matrices in the high schools, where the definition of vectors is entirely incorrect.

Finally, the standards have not been tested.  They have simply been decreed to be the gift that will fix all this countries problems in spite of the fact that the two authors that are competent in mathematics have no background with the creation, verification or testing of standards, while the third author has never been successful in creating standards of any quality what-so-ever.


Note from the Editor:  Small groups of teachers and instructional leaders from across the country looked at digital and print K-8 mathematics materials from widely used publishers—including Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt—as well as from some lesser-known providers whose texts passed state review processes. The results echo previous alignment studies conducted by university-based researchers.

“In general, the results are pretty bad for all the publishers,” said Morgan Polikoff, an assistant professor of education at the University of Southern California, in Los Angeles, who studies common-standards alignment but was not involved in the EdReports.org project. “I think people really will pay attention to this, and I think it will affect [curriculum] adoption processes going forward.”

In all, just one curriculum series stood out from the pack. Eureka Math, published by Great Minds, a small Washington-based nonprofit organization, was found to be aligned to the Common Core State Standards at all grade levels reviewed. As you can see, they were also recipients of Gates funds. The money flowed from Gates Foundation to Common Core, Inc. to individual companies- http://www.cardinalnewmansociety.org/CatholicEducationDaily/DetailsPage/tabid/102/ArticleID/2688/Common-Core-is-Curriculum-Contrary-to-Advocates%E2%80%99-Claims.aspx

THE LIFE OF AMENDMENT 8 – You Thought It Was Over!

I apologize to my readers for this article being about Florida. However, since that is where I live and where most of the corruption and plans to destroy our children’s future’s originates, I hope that by informing you of the measures our legislature is taking in ruining our children’s futures – you will also take a long hard look at your state to see if you are becoming a ‘copycat’!  Amendment 8 to FL SB 1552!


In 1999, Jeb Bush pushed through the legislature an “Opportunity Scholarship Program” that gave students in “failing” public schools state funding for tuition at religious and other private academies. Americans United for Separation of Church and State and other allied groups immediately challenged the voucher scheme in state court.  After years of legal wrangling, the Florida Supreme Court finally struck down the program in January 2006. The 5-2 court majority said vouchers violated a provision of the state constitution requiring a uniform system of free public schools.

Our new governor, Jeb Bush, stated vouchers will help parents rescue their children from chronically failing schools. If we have chronically failing schools, then the State of Florida and its legislators have failed to live up to what is expected by all Florida residents. A voucher allowing public money to be used in private schools defies the very definition of PRIVATE SCHOOLS. This money should be used to take all these failing and critically low-performing schools to a higher standard than we have today and get our legislators out of the BUSINESS of EDUCATION.

Jeb Bush reportedly was livid about the FL Supreme Court’s decision and vowed to press for a constitutional amendment, but he found it more difficult in the state legislature than expected. In May 2006, the proposed constitutional amendment fell short by one vote in the Republican-controlled Senate, despite a lot of hardball political pressure from the governor and his allies.

Bush then went for Plan B – after leaving office in Jan 07, he & his top advisers crafted a back-door maneuver to revise the state constitution and advance vouchers. They decided to stack the state’s 25 member Taxation and Budget Reform Commission  (TBRC) which meets every 20 years & has the power, by a two-thirds vote, to place initiatives directly on the ballot, bypassing the legislature and other governmental checks and balances.

Commission members were appointed by then governor Charlie Crist (Bush arranged with Crist to appoint Greg Turbeville, a former Bush policy director, the Senate president Ken Pruitt and the House speaker Marco Rubio who helped the scheme along by appointing Bush education adviser Patricia Levesque and other voucher fans). In all, “nine Bush-era acolytes with financial ties to voucher groups who stood to gain financially” were appointed to the Commission!

Bopsey Twins

Once again the FL Supreme Court stepped in and prior to the 2008 election, they ruled that the TBRC had exceeded its narrow authority of dealing with issues related to taxation or the state budgetary process in proposing the two initiatives and removed them from the ballot.

In the Spring of 2010, the Florida Legislature considered two resolutions (amendments) which, if passed, would have placed a ballot initiative similar to the TRBC’s Amendment 7 on the ballot. The legislation failed to advance beyond the Rules Committee in both the Senate and House of Representatives.

Now we are back to the table again and in the Spring of 2011, the Florida Legislature approved a resolution to place Amendment 7 on the November 2012 ballot. Amendment 7, similar to the church-state related constitutional provisions considered by the TBRC and the Florida legislature, would strip the Florida Constitution of its long standing church-state separation provision. The Amendment was designed to eliminate religious freedom protections currently in place in Florida and open the back door to taxpayer funded vouchers for private and religious schools. The Amendment would eviscerate protections in place governing partnerships between the state and private or religiously affiliated organizations, (possibly even permitting taxpayer money to flow directly to houses of worship). The Amendment is the first step towards permitting private school vouchers.

In July of 2011, Florida parents and clergy, as well as representatives of school administrators, teachers, and school boards, filed a lawsuit in Leon Circuit Court seeking to remove Amendment 7 from the November 2012 general election ballot.

The lawsuit made two claims. First, the plaintiffs contended that the language that will appear on the 2012 ballot doesn’t accurately describe what the amendment, if adopted, will actually do. In short, they argued that the ballot language was misleading. Second, the plaintiffs argued that the process set in place by the legislature for fixing misleading ballot language violates the separation of powers. The current law would have allowed the Attorney General to rewrite Amendment 8 if the Court had found it to be defective. The Plaintiffs argued that the Attorney General (a member of the Executive Branch) lacks the power to rewrite the language, as only the legislature can approve ballot language.

Judge Terry P. Lewis of the Second Judicial Circuit of Leon County ruled that the language that was slated to appear on the actual ballot to explain Amendment 7 was misleading and ordered Attorney General Pam Bondi to make the changes and hence, Amendment 7 came back as Amendment 8 in 2012. http://www.au.org/content/legal-challenge

But wait, vouchers have already been ruled as unconstitutional by the Florida Supreme Court stating they violated a provision of the state constitution requiring a uniform system of free public schools. However, Amendment 8 is focusing on vouchers to be used by PRIVATE and RELIGIOUS AFFILIATED ORGANIZATIONS!


Then in April 2014, the voucher hypocrisy of Jeb Bush supporter Florida legislators gave us vouchers despite the fact the voters in 2013 turned it down by a decisive margin and the FL Supreme Court had ruled it unconstitutional.

You see here in Florida it is not about the children, but “whatever Jeb Bush wants, Jeb Bush gets – sooner or later and by hook or by crook! Cons to this scam:

  • Private schools have little to no accountability requirements as to having certified teachers. Taxpayer funds should never be made available to private or parochial schools. (In the 2012 Voucher amendment, 2 of the 3 legislative writers of the amendment are Catholic).
  • The untruth passed through the halls of the legislature were that the parents wanted a push for STEM ((Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) when it originated within the Federal government. Teaching children science and history that is corrupt is not the way to equip them for the modern world unless the intention is indoctrination or you plan for them to be in the fields and factories anyway.
  • Programs for private schools are sometimes attractive to parents precisely because they are free of the innumerable unfunded mandates and endless testing inflicted on public schools. Parents are NOT checking with the private and parochial schools to see if they participated in the RTTT grant games and a good share of them did take money from the federal government which means CC.
  • And last but certainly not least, private school vouchers defy the Florida Constitution, which states that it is the state’s paramount duty to have a uniform system of high quality, free public schools. Corporate tax vouchers create a dual system that is profoundly unfair, dangerous and is intended not to benefit our children, but to fill the wallets of legislators and their corporate cronies along with filling another dream of Jeb Bush’s.

In a poll taken by Sunshine State News in April 2014 showed 55% of those participating were against vouchers, 42% supported and 2% were undecided. So again we must ask who is the FL legislature working for. With Andy Gardiner (R) now the head of the Fl Senate and a strong supporter of education privatization our children are in serious trouble.

One thing taxpayers must remember when it comes to education in Florida is that our system is set up that the governor in the end CHOOSES who will be our Commissioner of Education and APPOINTS the State School Board. Cronyism? Where else do you know that an APPOINTED state school board can overrule a district ELECTED school board?

Charters make up a disproportionate number of F-rated schools within the state and you never hear about all their failures and always with the excuse that they enroll students who have struggled in traditional schools and that they are in the low-income areas and were set up for failure from the start. I ask those parents if that is the right mentality to start a school with and is that what they are projecting to their students?

But then you have charters where they are earning A’s. In some cases, as with magnet schools, that’s the result of cherry-picking good students with motivated parents. Charter Management companies have even found ways to weed out the lower achieving students to help make their overall grade look better – yet it is the charter school which have all the unaccountability, uncertified teachers and in some cases uncertified schools themselves.

A warning to parents who are choosing the voucher approach to educate your child if they fall into the category of ‘English Language Learners’ (ELL). In the state of Florida there are laws in place that cover this in a ‘traditional public school’.

When your child goes to a school where vouchers are used for payments, all bets are off when it comes to these rules, and it’s because these schools are private and are not required to comply with state ESOL rules.

Another failure by our legislature is instead of insisting that students going to private schools with public money take the same standardized tests that public school kids take, the legislature would use public money to pay the Learning System Institute at Florida State University to do annual reports on the performance and learning gains of voucher students.  So they are going to use additional taxpayer money to ‘assess’ the performance of the children being school on the voucher system?

Now we are back to the Florida State Constitution which states ALL children must be treated the same! I do believe we have some laws suits floating around again!

So in essence children going to a private school by voucher do not have to take the FL standardized tests but a child with disabilities who are in alternate schools do. In case you aren’t aware, so are hundreds and hundreds of students who are classified as not liking school, truant, 1-2 years behind their peers, or just normally cannot pass a test.

(Yet the FL Statutes clearly states all testing is mandatory and Commissioner Stewart has stated there will be consequences for anyone not participating in the testing process. She however fails to tell parents what those consequences are).

These children are housed in traditional and charter school settings within normally un-used buildings all over the state never having to take another test, not show graduation rates, but we are paying for their bus transportation not only to school but to work. For you see these students are actually in ‘school-to-work’ schools – not technical schools just school where the most important agenda is them working in a McDonald’s, Burger King, car wash – not very often in an office and certainly not in training that would support them.

And most certainly do not call one of these school principals and ask any questions. Not only do they become rude and unaccountable, but in some cases will even tell you they don’t have to answer your questions and they send you to your district board to try and find out who is overseeing the program.

Now the current chapter in Florida’s charter/voucher corruption, the legislators are using the basic format of Amendment 8 from the 2012 election cycle and putting it in SB 1552.

With an ongoing Republican control in the Florida Senate and House, parents best start forming home school coalitions and tap into the ‘good’ teachers who have quit teaching because of Common Core and the antics in Tallahassee.

Parents it is impossible to make this stuff up and we must come together and stop this madness. I don’t care what your party affiliation is, your nationality, or your race – I care about the futures of our children.
