WHISTLEBLOWERWe know Parents like you have been blowing the Whistle and letting others know how bad this bill is for our Children’s futures and for the Country in general.

The legislators know this is not a “fast ride” to passage for them – Supporters of the bill are walking a thin line because of the voucher proposal using our tax dollars and applying the vouchers to private and parochial school. . House Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline needed a bill that would pass the House with support from moderates, and has been clear in recent weeks that a bill with private school vouchers would not have the votes to pass the chamber.

To remind you JOHN KLINE knew what the objective was in regard to the CCSS and RTTT and wrote Arne Duncan a letter objecting to the actions and motives of Duncan and Obama.

And please remember, Conservativism is not a Party thing. It is the personal belief in true conservative morals and values for a strong America. We are working to bring our country back to where she used to be!

Time To Welcome the First Pride School Pre-K LGBT!

According to Centers for Disease Control’s National Health Information Survey, people claiming to be LGBTQ make up less than 5% of America. That’s a really small percentage. Since LGBTQ people are not able to reproduce naturally, they must either adopt or use a sperm donor to obtain a child. Once having procured the child, indoctrination must then begin if their ranks are ever going to grow. Now they say that they need their own school so training and indoctrination in the LGBTQ lifestyle will be seamless.

These poor kids will be relentlessly exposed to the queer lifestyle and bombarded with queer ideas and “values”. They won’t stand a chance. America in 2015 is a scary place, and getting more bizarre and fragmented with each passing day. Just wait until they add the “P” to the LGBTQ, and they absolutely will.

ATLANTA — Some Atlantans are joining forces trying to start a new private school where students from all walks of life — mainly those who are from gay, lesbian or transgender families can feel comfortable.

School organizers have already secured an in-town location but need more money to get the school off the ground. School organizers and others in the gay and lesbian community are trying to start Pride School Atlanta.

The very reason the Federal government has put out legislation for some much funding for the Pre-K education. The ESEA Re-Authorization bill HR 5 will further open this up presenting a Federalized Education system.

They say their mission is to provide a safe and fun place for students to learn while letting them be who they are.

“I want a place where queer and trans families can bring their kids and not have to worry about being the token lesbian family or the token gay family,” said Christian Zsilavetz. The married father of two says he will not stop until Pride School Atlanta is a reality.

Zsilavetz is joining forces with others in the community to form a private school where children can learn without fear of harassment because of who they are or where they came from.

“It’s an intentional safe space for kids for youth who want to learn and not have to worry about homophobic remarks every day,” he said.

Introduction

 

Kara Vona has been an educator for 15 years. She is heterosexual, married to a man and proud mother of a 5-month-old little girl. She says she has seen students who cannot learn because of their sexual orientation, and will do what she can to get Pride School Atlanta off the ground.

“It’s not going to make everything better for every kid everywhere,” she said. “This is a small school that’s going to serve a small community but it’s going to serve them really well.”

The school has a location at Rock Springs Presbyterian Church on Piedmont Road, but more funding is needed. They say they hope to keep tuition down to $12,000 per year per student.

School organizers hope to initially start Pride School Atlanta this fall with classes from Pre-K to 8th grade.

Pre-K to 8th grade.

I personally see this as an attempt to “train” our children into the “LGBT” lifestyle at an early age – which my earlier series  “De We Protect Our Children or Sexual Deviates” addresses. Our young babies, whether they have two Moms or two Dads should not have to be concerned with that as a “LGBT” issue.  If the LGBT community wants to stop harassment of the children, they should stop continually drawing attention to the fact that the children associated with a LGBT home life is different. It is YOU who are making them the targets!

Let them be children and will with ALL kinds of children – not their whole life surrounded in nothing but “LGBT”.

LOCAL SCHOOL BOARDS ARE BEING REPLACED, STRIPPED OF POWER Part 2

by Ann Herzer  May, 2013

Public schools are being closed in communities where they are most needed. In Arizona, the teachers in Charter Schools do not have to be certified. Federal, and State laws and regulations have been waived to serve the new “choice” schools, but these are subjects not being addressed by the vested interest.) Back to the list.

The Center on Education Reform is listed as a resource on the list. The contact person is Jeanne Allen, formerly with the Heritage Foundation. (Ed. Note: Jeanne Allen still heads this group and is now showing up at meetings sponsored by The Excellence Foundation, headed by former Governor of Florida, Jed Bush (brother to George W Bush, Jr.). They are now promoting “The Common Core Standards” and the performance-based test, aligned to the standards. The almost same identical legislation is appearing state by state and is in all probability written by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) or The Council for Foreign Relations (CFR) who have now joined with the right political organizations trying to convince citizens that our country is in danger of collapse due to children not being trained for the global workforce). The conference at Arizona State University lists the following:

The Board of Directors for The Center on Education Reform, listed as: William J Hume; G. Carl Ball; William J Bennett; John Chubb (Brooking Institute pushing Choice); Denis P. Doyle (on Design Team with Bennett); Pete du Pont (Hudson Institute); Chester E. Finn, Jr. (on the Modern Red Schoolhouse Design Team and the Edison Project and others). The Arizona Republic, our local newspaper noted:

On Wednesday, July 20, 1994, the Republican Candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction for Arizona, Lisa Graham, attended a fund raising event for her in Washington, D. C. at the home of Grover G. Norquist. She is being touted as the author of the “landmark Arizona Charter School Choice Plan” and Charter School Legislation. The following persons along with others are listed on the invitation:

Jeanne Allen; Congressman Dick Armey; Governor Pete du Pont; Jeff Flake (with the Goldwater Institute in Arizona, (now U. S. Senator from Arizona) working with the Morrison Institute to implement the plan). Sidney Hoff-Hay (with the Lincoln Caucus); Senator John McCain; Michael Sanera (Arizona Institute for Public Policy Research who hosted the Edison Project last year in Arizona—this institute and the Goldwater Institute are listed as Heritage Institute think-tanks. The Heritage Institute is established in 34 states, and Governor J. Fife Symington III. (Ed note: Lisa-Graham- now Keegan is closely associated with Charter Schools in Arizona and runs a company to train applicants. All living former State Superintendents of Public Instruction in Arizona are listed as now associated with charter schools. Their names may be checked on the web).

Several members involved in restructuring education are members of the elite and secret Council for National Policy. This council does not make its membership list available to the public. It was formed (so they say) to counter the left Council on Foreign Relations, but some of the members belong to the CFR. This CNP’s membership includes the leadership of almost all conservative and Christian leadership groups. What is the motive?

Could it be money? In an article written by David R. Sands, The Washington Times, April 12, 1988, titled “Powerful players get global bank off the ground.” Sands states:

“Organizers will soon be announcing the final details for the long-delayed ambitious international finance bank with headquarters in the District of Columbia….Credit International, which will offer exclusive upscale private banking services and U. S. real estate financing for foreign investors in addition to its trade financing operations, …Credit International and its holding company, Credit International Banc Shares Ltd., feature a high-powered group of organizing directors, headed by bank Chairman, Richard V. Allen, former national security advisor for President Reagan….Other board members include Dr. Edwin Feulner, president and chief executive of the Heritage Foundation….”

The Heritage Foundation has been promoting along with Willard W. Garvey (The Center for Privatization in Wichita, Kansas) privatizing government holdings. In a letter to President Ronald Reagan, April 6, 1984, Garvey states:

“Privatization is now ‘an idea whose time has come’. The knowledge, communication, and computer industry can make political representatives obsolete”. (Emphasis added).

Has it? The Heritage Foundation created the “Town-Hall-The Conservative Meeting Place” which has “Instant 24 Hour Communication and Interaction for Conservative Groups”, and it works with such groups as: “The Free Congress Foundation’s National Empowerment Television project; The Leadership Institute; Citizens Against Government Waste; Family Research Council; The State Policy Network of state-based think tanks; Intercollegiate Studies Institute and more”. (Heritage Publications 1993/1994, p. 12).

Former Secretary of Education named a study group to evaluate national student assessments. Some of those named include: Lamar Alexander; Hillary Rodham Clinton; Linda Darling-Hammond; John C. Este, Jr. (president, National Association of Independent Schools) which was involved with forming Ted Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools – Sizer’s group was named Project: Relearning and has been approved by the Governors and The Education Commission of the States for restructuring. His Atlas Communities is also one of NASDC’s Design Teams; Bill Honig (former state superintendent of public instruction, Calf.) (Education Daily, May 15, 1986, p. 2).

William Bennett also funded Mastery Learning projects while he was Secretary of USDOE. (Transforming American Education: Reducing the Risk To The Nation, A Report to the Secretary of Education United States Dept. of Education, The National Task Force on Educational Technology, April, 1986). (See my article “Our Children: The Drones” for further information on Mastery Learning; posted on NewsWithViews).

In the same Education Daily edition listed above, it states:

“Bennett includes ‘Character’ projects in diffusion network priorities.” (Ed. Note: Mastery Learning is based on behavioral psychology and both ML and Character educations programs raised an outrage from parents and many teachers, so the name was changed to Outcome Based Education to try and fool the public).

The National Diffusion Network was established to promote government programs into the schools across America. The decline of public education can be traced directly to these programs. At no time, has any organization or group promoting Goals 2000 ever discussed the destructive behavior modification and inferior programs that have been used on teachers and students for more than three decades. I accuse the federal government, left and right wing foundations, and groups of deliberately trying to destroy public education in the United States. (Were these destructive programs deliberately created to help destroy public education so the profit motive” privateers” could take over and implement the global economy?)

I accuse these same groups and persons of developing mind-bending destructive Sex Education, Character Education, Self-esteem, and Skinnerian Behavior Modification programs to destroy the culture and youth of our county. Why has this been done? So they may control and develop the “human resources” (the workers and the clones) to carry out their deceptive plan of total control not only of human resources but all resources in the world.

These movers and shapers are outside the mainstream of American culture and political thought in this country, and most others where this one-world system is being implemented. Are some of the persons involved innocent victims of NTL change agents? Are some political and power hungry opportunists? Are some money hungry parasites that live off federal and foundation grants? Whatever the reason, this plan must be stopped immediately by the people. (The Common Core Standards is the final nail in the coffin. Obama’s Race To The Top was started decades ago).

Every person has been given free-will to choose right from wrong. We are at the point in history where we must choose, and we must take a stand against this totalitarian plan which will lead not only the United States of America but other citizens of the world into slavery. (Ed. Note: The behavioral psychologist does not believe in free-will. They look upon mankind as a machine to be shaped and molded into whatever they desire. Children are now called “human capitol” and “human resources” to be trained in our schools for the planned global economy using behavioral psychology).

Citizens must know the enemy, and the enemy is coming from both the right and left political and economic groups. The radical right and the radical left have met in mid-center. (Ed. Note: The following names are from my old article and list, but some remain and some have changed – the objectives remain the same).

Chester Finn, Jr., obtained a federal grant to establish the Educational Excellence Network. In a recent publication by the Hudson Institute, it lists the membership in “A report by the Educational Excellence Network and its Education Policy Committee.” The Education Policy Committee members are:

“Chester Finn, Jr., Diane Ravitch, Co-Chairs; Joseph Adelson, Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan; Lamar Alexander, Former U. S. Secretary of Education, Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute; Jeanne Allen, President, Center for Education Reform, Leslye Arsht, President, Goals 2000 Coalition; Stephen H. Balch, President and Executive Director, National Association of Scholars. (Ed. Note: Diane Ravitch has since pulled out of the group and is working against the group on her blog and in her book, The Death and Life of the Great AMERICAN School System, c 2010. Many concerned educators and citizens are now found on the computer working in opposition to this plan). Back to the list.

Jim Benchivenga, President, Hull Council for Business and Cultural Development; William J Bennett, Former U. S. Secretary of Education; Co-Director of Empower America; Clint Bolick, Vice President and Director of Litigation, Institute of Justice; Samuel Brunelli, Executive Director, American Legislative Exchange Council; Linda Chavez, John M. Olin Fellow, Center for the New American Community, Manhattan Institute; Saul Copperman, President, Ready Foundation (formerly with the Business Round-Table-ed).

Three persons did not concur with the substance of this report: Leslye Arsht, Donald M. Stewart and Bill Honig. (Emphasis added – ed).

In the Teachers’ Guide, Feb., 1993 for Whittle Educational Network News and Programming, i. e. Channel I (Connected with Edison Project) – listed for Friday, Feb. 26 “The Educators’ Channel” titled And Learning For All: National Town Meeting of Education, (Program source: Pacific Mountain Network, with underwriting provided by the U. S. Department of Education’s Office of Educational Research and Improvement, and by United Airlines, p. 15).

In their Teachers’ Guide, Dec. 1992, p. 7, they list as “Partners in the “….And Learning for All” project include Pacific Mountain Regional Educational Laboratory, Western Cooperative for Educational Telecommunications, PBS station KRMA-TV, Mind Extension University, Colorado 2000 Communities, and the National School Public Relations Association.”

While good parents and American citizens are stripped of their salaries with high government taxation, and plead with their representatives and school officials not to implement Outcome Based Education (which is the systematic control system being used to change everything in our country), the federal government promotes its destructive plan through private groups like Whittle and others. The American people are being asked to pay for their own destruction and it is coming from the now radical center of both major political parties.  Part 1

During her teaching career, Ann taught all grade levels, (K-College in reading) as well as all ability level students including gifted, and non-English speaking. In 1982, she was the Republican candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction for Arizona; ran again in 1986, the primary purpose was to expose the experimental programs being used on teachers and children, especially ECRI (Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction) and others. She pushed for a Congressional investigation on ECRI and other programs, but it never happened. People contacted her regarding ECRI and the harmful effects on children who were having difficult problems due to the stress from ECRI. All of this went to Congress and the DOE. The DOE lied about the method and denied that children were timed with stopwatches even after Ann sent them documented pod materials from their manuals. A large effort has been made to cover up ECRI and other similar programs destroying our children.

Ann’s education research articles have been published in the Wisconsin Report, Charlotte Iserbyt’s books; The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, and Back to Basics Reform, the Barbara Morris Report, and countless newspapers and magazines. She also contributed data to Rev. James Patrick’s “Research Manual, America 2000/Goals 2000 – Moving the Nation Educationally to a ‘New World Order’.”

At the request of concerned parents, Ann spoke in several states against America and Goals 2000 and helped organize the Southwestern USA to work against the Soviet/Carnegie/American agreement… through the “National Citizen’s Alliance.” She is a member of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution with eight proven Revolutionary Patriots, one of whom served at Valley Forge with Gen. Geo. Washington. Ann continues to do research exposing the destruction of our once excellent academic education.

Local School Boards Are Being Replaced, Stripped of Power Part 1

Ann Herzer   May 2013

Dr. Shirley McCune, senior director of the federally funded Mid-Continent Regional Education Laboratory was involved in a planning workshop in Millard, Nebraska, July 21, 1983. She presented a plan for systematic change for our total society. One paper stated that we are moving from “party politics” to “policies of the radical center.” The radical right and the radical left appear to have met in mid-center on several issues: Goals 2000; School-to-Work; NAFTA and GATT.

The New American Schools Development Corporation’s radical design teams have been selected to “break the mold” away from basic-traditional education in order to train children for the global workforce. Privatizing education through Charter Schools allows these radical design teams, and other private entities such as The Edison Project, Educational Alternatives, Inc., and Disney World (Mickey Mouse Schools) to rob American citizens of their own tax-supported schools. This plan is being supported by both the right-wing and the left-wing political groups who appear to have met in the radical mid-center on education, social control and a global economy.

Dr. Shirley McCune appears with former Secretary of Education Lamar Alexander at the Kansas Governor’s Summit on Education in 1989. She made the following statement:

“…what we are into is a total restructuring of the society. What is happening in America today…is not simply a change4 situation and the usual winds of change. What it amounts to is a total transformation of our society…The whole ball game in this particular change society is that there are only two things that really matter. One of those is the information capital that we can put together…Secondly, to produce Human Capital…we have to prepare students not for today’s society, but for a society that’s 20, 30, 40, 50 years down the road…That’s called Social Change Function of schools.”

Lamar Alexander (now United States Senator from Tennessee) on “The New American School,” said at the Kansas Governor’s Education Summit:

Such a school would probably start with babies and go through the eighth grade. It would be all year-long. It would be open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every child would have his or her own computer and work-station. Every child would have a team of teachers that would stay with that child until graduation. These schools would ‘serve children from age three months old to age 18′ and they would serve as a ‘one-stop shopping’ center for welfare services ranging from family planning, health care, and other social services. Legislation should ‘assure that all women have access to affordable, high quality parental care and that all infants and children have access to affordable, high quality comprehensive health care'”.

The health care plan for children and families may be found in Beyond Rhetoric, “Final Report of the National Commission on Children” that was established by Public Law 100-203. This bipartisan body was composed of 34 members appointed by the President, the President pro tempore of the U. S. Senate, and the Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives. The Chairman was Hon. John D. Rockefeller IV and some of the other members were: Hon. Bill Clinton, Mary Hattwood Futrell (former President of NEA), and Hon. Bill Honing (former Commissioner of Education for California), and others active in restructuring education.

This Panel had several meetings and field activities around the country. Several of the participants are involved in NASDC’s radical design teams. One meeting titled “How Children Develop Values” list John H. Buchanan, Jr., Chairman, People for the American Way, and Phyllis Schlafly founder and President of Eagle Forum and others.

One meeting titled Building a Productive Labor Force, lists Marc S. Tucker, President, National Center on Education and the Economy. (Carnegie Foundation etc.). Tucker has been one of the strongest advocates for restructuring education. (Ed. Note: He still is, and his Letter to Hillary Clinton was placed in the Congressional Record, and is posted on the web).

Appendix F: Corporate Advisory Board Members lists several interesting people who have been actively involved in restructuring. Of particular interest are Steven J. Ross, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, Time Warner, Inc., who through The Edison Project, intends to run public schools for profit. (Ed. Note: The Edison Project was under the direction of Chester Finn, Jr., who is involved with the Fordham Foundation, the think-tank for the right wing political groups).

The first plan for educational restructuring that I saw was a proposal by The National Council for Better Education-a project of National Conservative Foundation in 1983. This group proposed enterprise zones and defined the zones as a …”district independent of state and federal interference, regulations and control”. The Charter Schools bill in Arizona allows the Charter Schools to be legally autonomous if sponsored by the two state boards of education. With the U. S. Secretary of Education’s approval and other Federal Agencies, the schools are allowed to waive all Federal, State and Local laws, rules and regulations except …”civil rights, audit and student assessments, special education and insurance.” (Ed. Note: See Title 15 under Arizona Laws, posted on the web, under School Improvement Act).

The National Council for Better Education proposed that Chicago Mastery Learning be used as the method and that the children be trained according to whatever the market demands …”whether that be liberal arts, fine arts, or vocational education.” They further proposed that:

“Each zone will be funded from federal and state money given directly to the zone with no strings attached—sort of a mega-block grant)”.

Some Charter Schools legislation has limited restrictions for local and community input (the same as the Federal: Goals 2000), but Arizona’s law does not address this issue. The Morrison Institute that is on one of NASDC’s design teams states:

“Support needed from Teacher/Staff/Parents for School Conversion…not addressed in legislation”.

They do have to have the local schools boards’ approval to establish a Charter School on public school property, but the State is busy looking for empty rooms and buildings to fulfill this endeavor.

The second time I saw this proposal was by the Phoenix Futures Forum which later joined with the Urban League. Their paper is titled Strategies to Prepare Phoenix for the Year 2015, and is dated October, 1989.

The third time I saw this proposal was from the Arizona Business Leadership for Education (ABLE) that formed a committee in June, 1990. Their proposal was titled Better Schools for Arizona.

The next proposal was done by the Governor’s Task Force on Educational Reform which convened in May, 1991.

The American 2000 proposal was supposed to have been developed when President Bush and the Governors met in Charlottesville, Virginia, September, 1989. After William Clinton became President the title was changed to Goals 2000. (Ed. Note: President George W Bush called it No Child Left Behind and President Obama calls his version Race to the Top most probably changed to make opposition think that the “thing” had gone away. This is what has happened with the method of “Mastery Learning” noted before; it changed to Direct Instruction, Outcome Based Education, Performance Based Education and now Core Standards etc., etc.).

This proposal may also be found in literature published by the United Nations. The World Conference on Education for All was held in Jomtien, Thailand, March 5-9, 1990.

On October 30 – November 1, 1991, in Alexandria, VA. The United States Coalition for Education for All met. The title for this meeting was Learning for All: Bridging Domestic and International Education. The purpose follows:

“The U. S. Coalition for Education for All is part of a 156-nation network working to reform education worldwide.

Barbara Bush was the Honorary Chair of this meeting and the Keynote Speakers were David Kearns—Deputy Secretary, U. S. Department of Education (former CEO Xerox Corporation and, Xerox is mentioned in one of the design teams); Al Shanker, President, American Federation of Teachers; Elena Lenskaya, Deputy Minister of Education, Republic of Russia; James Grant, Executive Director, UNICEF. This is a one-world plan. Every citizen will be tracked for conformity.

The National Center for Education Statistics has a computer tracking system for public, home school, and private schools which tracks every family in the United States. While it gives lip-service to the Privacy Act of 1974, the exemptions are so broad almost anyone can access the records. (See related article). It is easy to track the resistors in a community with this instant retrieval system. (Ed. Note: A Student Data Handbook: Elementary, Secondary and Early Childhood Education, was published July, 1994, U. S. Department of Education; Office of Educational Research and Improvement, NSCES 94-303 also see the SpeedeExpress that has over 400 identifiers including birthmarks, eye color, baptismal name, nickname, etc. etc. etc.)

The National Educational Goals Panel, an appointed political group, formed to track compliance to Goals 2000 and the School-to-Work program (i. e. report-cards) issued a Community Action Kit telling the proponents exactly how to manipulate and brainwash the citizens into compliance. While most of the “free-press” continues to propagandize and mislead the people about the intent of restructuring, a great newspaper reporter, Robert Holland with Richmond Times Dispatch continues to expose this one-world travesty to his readers. He sent Secretary of Education, Richard Riley a memo regarding the Community Action Kit.

Holland quoted the kit as saying: “Only by changing the attitudes and behavior of community members will it be possible to reach the National Education Goals.”….isn’t such a government directed propaganda campaign unprecedented in America’s history?” Mr. Holland quotes some of the topics in the kit which tells how to identify “Allies and Opponents: avoid the term Outcome-Based Education; Choosing a Facilitator” all designed to lead to group-think or conformity. (Ed. Note: The tool used is known as the Delphi technique; the facilitator insures everyone in the group that a consensus has been reached, and none dare question the “group”. The opposition is silenced, if there is any, through lies, smears, labeled conspiracy kooks and you name it. I always advise citizens to never join a group with a facilitator. Several years ago, I attended an Arizona Senate Education hearing, and my district Senator chaired the meeting and in his opening statement said: “We are here to reach a consensus.” I sat in the front row and taped the hearing, and he said to me: “Ann, you are not taping this are you?” and I replied: “Yes, and taking good notes in case my battery runs out”.

I was a precinct captain in our district and helped to get this man elected. Since when in a democratic society, do people have to reach a consensus? So, tape their hearing if you can get in; many appointed groups are closed to the public or the legislators shift the hearing around until one is unable to follow the time and place. Another old trick is to change or postpone the hearing at the last minute, or never call the opposition to testify, even if one signs up. In Arizona the Legislators have devised a sneaky way of slipping an opposed bill under the door. They “strike-all” from a worthless bill, and then attached the opposed legislation to it. Representative government and dishonesty becomes questionable under such tactics).

Apparently the United States views the citizens as tools to be manipulated in order to implement the prearranged United Nations plan. Included in a packet of materials I received from a concerned citizen was a statement from Minnesota to Mr. Holland. It reads:

“I am appalled that my government is running propaganda campaigns among the citizenry reminiscent of Chairman Mao’s many political campaigns in Communist China.”

This comes as no surprise to the author who has been researching and following educational restructuring for twenty-five years. The Education for All “Today”, Issue 2, Jan. – March, 1993 in its Innovation Corner is titled “Overcoming Resistance and Facilitating Change: The NTL Institute’s Approach.”

The National Training Laboratory Institute (NTL) was affiliated with the National Education Association (NEA) from 1947 to 1967. The purpose is stated in this newsletter as follows:

“Dedicated to developing and applying scientific methods to behavior modification, the Institute facilitates productive change at the individual, social, organizational and macro-system levels.”

The Institute has facilitated change with all elements of society throughout the world: clergy, business, labor, legislators, Governors, Congress, school administrators and teachers etc. Apparently, they have been successful with the masses. Only a few resistors remain, especially since the “conservative right-wing” political and religious leaders have convinced their membership that Choice and Charter Schools will eliminate NEA and government control of schools. This is a lie! One only has to read the Federal and States Educational Restructuring Plans for confirmation of this fact. Private and public schools including home schools will be chartered and controlled with government money. (Ed. Note: Vouchers are the carrot and stick being used for naïve private, religious and home schools across the USA. The citizens public schools are being taken over by private groups, foundations, foreign persons, and are being are run for profit one way or another, either through management companies, computer companies or nepotism).

Local school boards are being replaced or stripped of power. Representative government is becoming obsolete. Appointed councils now are taking the place of elected representatives in all endeavors across the USA. “No Child Will Be Left Behind”. All children are to be trained for the global one-world planned workforce using the scientific method of behavioral psychology now attached to computer software. Citizen owned property is now being sold and some leased back. The current governor sold our State Capitol, House and Senate buildings to a private group. Unless we pay off the loan in twenty years, the private investment company will own the citizens property. We are now leasing this property back that was completely debt free. I could find nothing in our Constitution that allows this. The same people are working hard to privatize public schools).

The radical right and the radical left have met in mid-center on restructuring education along with NAFTA, The Crime Bill, and last but not least we can expect to see the finalization of the plan through GATT (World Trade Organization). Who are they? (Now in place).

A meeting was held at Arizona State University, Saturday, October 22, 1994 and a “Charter School Chronicle Resource List” was handed out to the participants. This paper lists both right-wing and left-wing political groups who are supporting Charter School. For example: the American Federation of Teachers (AFT); The National Education Association (NEA); Education Commission of the States (the ECS formed Regional Government and placed each state in a Federal Educational Laboratory); The Heritage Foundation: National Association of Charter Schools, Inc.; The Morrison Institute (on NASDC Design teams); Office of Senator Dave Durenberger; National Council of State Legislatures; Hudson Institute (NASDC’s Modern Red Schoolhouse with William Bennett (former Secretary of USDOE); Chester Finn, Jr. who is with the Edison Project and runs Charter schools for profit…now with the Fordham Institute who cranks out propaganda in support of privatizing public education ( Finn was formerly with USDOE); National Governors’ Association and others. (Ed. Note: Now the privateers, computer companies and vested interest hope to fire competent teachers and replace them with unproven computer software. This will be done through performance-based evaluations tied to student outcomes that have been manipulated for years to serve the vested interest of a few. The leadership of the two major teacher unions AFT and NEA has sold out to the enemies of the teachers and our most precious heritage, our children. While the leadership gives lip service to the hard-working teachers, taking their money through dues, our good, highest qualified teachers are being fired or put in holding-rooms and replaced with Teach For America non-qualified teachers – one can assume to plug the children into the computer).

During her teaching career, Ann taught all grade levels, (K-College in reading) as well as all ability level students including gifted, and non-English speaking. In 1982, she was the Republican candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction for Arizona; ran again in 1986, the primary purpose was to expose the experimental programs being used on teachers and children, especially ECRI (Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction) and others. She pushed for a Congressional investigation on ECRI and other programs, but it never happened. People contacted her regarding ECRI and the harmful effects on children who were having difficult problems due to the stress from ECRI. All of this went to Congress and the DOE. The DOE lied about the method and denied that children were timed with stopwatches even after Ann sent them documented pod materials from their manuals. A large effort has been made to cover up ECRI and other similar programs destroying our children.

Ann’s education research articles have been published in the Wisconsin Report, Charlotte Iserbyt’s books; The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, and Back to Basics Reform, the Barbara Morris Report, and countless newspapers and magazines. She also contributed data to Rev. James Patrick’s “Research Manual, America 2000/Goals 2000 – Moving the Nation Educationally to a ‘New World Order’.”

At the request of concerned parents, Ann spoke in several states against America and Goals 2000 and helped organize the Southwestern USA to work against the Soviet/Carnegie/American agreement… through the “National Citizen’s Alliance.” She is a member of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution with eight proven Revolutionary Patriots, one of whom served at Valley Forge with Gen. Geo. Washington. Ann continues to do research exposing the destruction of our once excellent academic education.

The Federal Government Declares War on Its Own with HR 5!

No one has done more research on the Federal NO WAY – ESA HR-5 bill than Anita Hoge! If you don’t know what that is – it is the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the last time they messed with it we got No Child Left Behind.

This bill is a killer to your PARENTAL RIGHTS and will give us NATIONALIZED EDUCATION.

Time to forward this information on to everyone on your lists and get the phone calls going – fast and furious! We are now at war! The HR-5 re-authorization bill declared it – we are just suiting up late. You must read this article so you know what we are fighting. The time is NOW! Call your Representatives and Senators in D.C. and let them know you do not support this evil. Also call all members of all the Committees having anything to do with  Education.

Inserted information regarding the state of Florida was done by myself.  Insert information regarding your state.  The sessions regarding this legislation have been held behind closed doors and no  outsiders like you or I have been allowed to testify against this re-authorization. Permission is given to use this posting and add your states information regarding any legislation done regarding the ESEA but nothing else. The basic posting of this article is the property of Anita Hoge and reposted with permission with stipulated changes.

BILL: HR-5 DENIES PARENTS THEIR RIGHT OVER THEIR OWN CHILDREN By Anita Hoge February 21, 2015 NewsWithViews.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The following information is critically important. It should go viral immediately. Send it to every parent and grandparent, school board member, state legislator, voter, friend… Post it on Facebook, websites, blogs, etc. Time is very short.

HR-5 Student Success Act of 2015

(Put your own State here) Floridians Against Common Core Education (F.A.C.C.E.), Florida AgEnders, Stop Common Core FL, Citizens of Florida, Florida Against HR 5, parents and students are asking Representative John Kline to stop the REAUTHORIZATION of ESEA, HR 5, the Student Success Act of 2015 which will amend No Child Left Behind.

  • HR 5 denies parents their rights over their children. References page 488; 522-555.
  • HR 5 legislation creates the radical transformation of tax collection through the assigned destruction and hostile takeover of our local neighborhood schools.
  • HR 5 violates states’ rights under the United States Constitution.
  • HR 5 is designed to destroy local, public neighborhood schools through usurpation of elected school boards’ authorities and responsibilities.
  • HR 5 will destroy all private education in America, as well, legislating Title I “choice” vouchers that will “follow the child,” enforcing
  • HR 5 compliance in EVERY PRIVATE AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOL.
  • HR 5 would legislate services to these Title I “choice” children called DIRECT STUDENT SERVICES AS A VOUCHER that must be equitable and comparable to any public school, which is needed to satisfy Common Core. 
  • HR 5 will destroy representative government, all non-governmental schools, and standardize education across this nation. This overreach of the federal government is in direct violation of our United States Constitution which dictates separation of Federal jurisdiction vs. State jurisdiction.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, you state in the Student Success Act HR 5, Press Release, February 3, 2015:”…..This proposal provides an opportunity to chart a new course….”

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, this “new course” that you are forcing on the states will end in Constitutional chaos.

  • HR 5 removes Constitutional states’ rights sovereignty.
  • HR 5 redefines parent and removes parental rights over the upbringing of their children.
  • HR 5 subjugates state legislatures under blatantly false pretenses about state and local control.
  • HR 5 presents choice vouchers defined as “direct student services,” as a means to control private and religious schools and phase out public schools.
  • • HR 5 would transform ALL SCHOOLS into government schools. Has every state ceded the land that these schools occupy, turning them into federal lands? If the states have not ceded the land to the federal government, the federal government’s jurisdiction is determined to be severely limited, unless altered drastically by the state legislature. Questions of jurisdiction would still remain. At the least, HR 5 obfuscates state and federal jurisdictions as specified in the Constitution and affirmed in numerous Supreme Court decisions

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE Who “Grubered” your HR 5 and consigned the states to federal takeover?

  • HR 5 forces private and religious schools to provide services through an APPROVED state list of providers eliminating the freedom for private and religious schools to teach students to their own standards and select their own curriculum.
  • HR 5 forces private and religious schools to provide non-cognitive mental health areas of personality development and interventions whereby proficiency levels in the social, emotional, and behavioral domain are scored to a criterion resulting in violations of privacy under the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment, federal law, state law, and civil rights laws.
  • HR 5 uses choice vouchers to dissolve the public school system through the exodus of (departure of) Choice, Title I, at-risk students who disengage from the public school and enter a private or religious school. Public schools are presently represented by locally elected school board members in the United States. The destruction of our neighborhood public school system undermines the power and authority of property tax provisions and elected school board representation on the local level, representation which financially supports local education agencies.
  • HR 5 provides for the expansion of charter schools as the sanctioned alternative for schooling. As you, Representative Kline, must know, charter schools are a system of schooling without elected boards. They use public tax monies regulated by federal government mandates, standards, assessment and teacher remediation with data tracking and trafficking and re-education toward Common Core standards.
  • HR 5 by design eliminates local and state representative government by removing the states’ rights and local control of education and surrenders our children’s education and future to the dictates of the federal government.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, H.R. 5 is a Constitutional Crisis in the Making.

  • HR 5 requires that states legislatively surrender their rights over education in order to receive Title I funds.
  • HR 5 removes the parents as the final arbiters in the upbringing of their children, and wrestles control of private and religious education through federal encroachment as explained below.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, quoting from your HR 5 legislation, on page 552, you stipulate the criteria for removing the state legislature’s constitutional power, rights, and responsibilities as follows:

Subpart 4—Restoration of State Sovereignty Over Public Education and Parental Rights Over the Education of Their Children

‘‘SEC. 6561. STATES TO RETAIN RIGHTS AND AUTHORITIES

THEY DO NOT EXPRESSLY WAIVE.

‘‘(a) RETENTION OF RIGHTS AND AUTHORITIES.— No officer, employee, or other authority of the Secretary shall enforce against an authority of a State, nor shall any authority of a State have any obligation to obey, any requirement imposed as a condition of receiving assistance under a grant program established under this Act, nor shall such program operate within a State, unless the legislature of that State shall have by law expressly approved that program and, in doing so, HAVE waived the State’s rights and authorities to act inconsistently with any requirement that might be imposed by the Secretary as a condition of receiving that assistance.” (Emphasis added)

“(b) AMENDMENT OF TERMS OF RECEIPT OF FEDERAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

An officer, employee, or other authority of the Secretary may release assistance under a grant program established under this Act to a State only after the legislature of the State has by law expressly approved the program (as described in sub- section (a)). This approval may be accomplished by a vote to affirm a State budget that includes the use of such Federal funds and any such State budget must expressly include any requirement imposed as a condition of receiving assistance under a grant program established under this Act so that by approving the budget, the State legislature is expressly approving the grant program and, in doing so, waiving the State’s rights and authorities to act inconsistently with any requirement that might be imposed by the Secretary as a condition of receiving that assistance.” (Emphasis added)

The passage of your bill out of committee to be voted on by the entire House of Representatives by February 24 must be stopped. The HR 5 Reauthorization of ESEA, amending No Child Left Behind, must be stopped because the provisions inherent in this legislation are egregious and lack Constitutional authority. Passage of H.R. 5 will bring about the destruction of the United States system of public education as well as the radical transformation of representative government both at the state and local level.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, these states’ rights issues have not been discussed at your hearings. Is each state legislature aware of the fact that these measures, hidden in federal and state statute, will remove their state’s guaranteed rights under the Constitution? Will each state, including your own state of Minnesota, have to amend its own state constitution to comply with HR-5?

Several states have recently added language in their state statutes that in effect cedes jurisdiction to the federal government.

REPRESENTATIVE KILNE, have you advised the following states of the impact of the HR 5 legislation:   (add your state information here)

Florida 2014 Statute Title XLVIII, K-20 EDUCATION CODE, Chapter 1008,

ASSESSMENT AND ACCOUNTABILITY 1008.33 Authority to enforce public school improvement

(1) The State Board of Education shall comply with the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), 20 U.S.C. ss. 6301 et seq., its implementing regulations, and the ESEA flexibility waiver approved for Florida by the United States Secretary of Education. The state board may adopt rules to maintain compliance with the ESEA and the ESEA flexibility waiver. (Emphasis added)

(2)(a) Pursuant to subsection (1) and ss. 1008.34, 1008.345, and 1008.385, the State Board of Education shall hold all school districts and public schools accountable for student performance. The state board is responsible for a state system of school improvement and education accountability that assesses student performance by school, identifies schools that are not meeting accountability standards, and institutes appropriate measures for enforcing improvement.

Proposed rule changes (2013) for school grades also include a revision of the participation rate calculation to comply with the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and extension of the one-letter-grade-drop limit as a continued measure to ease Florida’s transition to Common Core in accountability systems. (Emphasis added)

Pennsylvania has currently proposed legislation, HB 168, Sec. 121(a) (Representative Tobash), that states it will comply to federal ESEA legislation and future ESEA legislation:

“The Department of Education shall develop and implement Keystone Exams in [the following subjects:]……..as required by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110, 115 Stat. 1425) or any successor statute.”(lines 17, 18, 19 ) (Emphasis added)

Oklahoma, in an effort to stop Common Core, the Oklahoma legislature’s passage of House Bill 3399, Sec. 11-103.6a 4 (page 18) with the purpose to remove Common Core Standards, defined in their bill that they would succumb to ESEA federal law:

“Upon the effective date of this act, the State Board of Education shall seek certification from the State Regents for Higher Education that the subject matter standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics which were in place prior to the revisions adopted by the Board in June 2010 are college-and career-ready as defined in the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility document issued by the United States Department of Education.” (emphasis added)

The Oklahoma legislature codified Common Core through ESEA and gave up its state’s rights authority by surrendering education and students to federal control.

Indiana’s supposed departure from Common Core in HB 1427, (Sec. 14.5(a) C, page 9) also surrenders its state’s rights in order to comply with federal standards.

“Provides that the state board shall implement educational standards that use the common core standards as the base model for academic standards to the extent necessary to comply with federal standards to receive a Flexibility Waiver. ” (emphasis added)

South Carolina’s bill, H3893, (Sec 3, section 59-18-325, (C)(1) passed to stop Common Core and the Smarter Balanced Test is yet another example of a state surrendering its state’s rights over education and students to the federal government. In fact this law restores Common Core:

“The summative assessment must assess students in English/language arts and mathematics, including those students as required by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and by Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. [For purposes of this subsection, ‘English/language arts’ includes English, reading, and writing skills as required by existing state standards.” [NOTE: The existing State standards are Common Core.] (Emphasis added)

The state of Washington is yet another example. Reference Senate Bill 6030, (Sec 6, (4)(a) page 16, lines 17-20):

“..and shall not conflict with requirements contained in Title I of the federal elementary and secondary education act of 1965, or the requirements of the Carl D. Perkins vocational education 20 act of 1998, each as amended.” (Emphasis added)

(Has your state done this and given all authority over to the Federal Government through total compliance of ESEA Federal Legislation? Time to check)

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, have these states been apprised of the devious design in HR 5 to take away states’ rights granted under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution?

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, why have your hearings not discussed the aspect of the “direct student services” that is defined as PUBLIC SCHOOL CHOICE FOR ALL PRIVATE AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS? Why have these services not been discussed…services that each private and religious school MUST “provide on an equitable basis” to meet the individual needs of each child who receives a SUPER VOUCHER? Why does the state require that private or religious schools MUST use “approved academic tutoring services as determined by a provider on a State approved list”? Schools will be subjected to discrimination charges if they deny matriculation of a Title I child even if they cannot financially support the OPEN-ENDED direct services mandated in HR 5, as explained below — even if it bankrupts them.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, why is “meaningful choice” defined as complying to state standards (Common Core) and interventions identified for each “at-risk” child receiving the following services: Special Education, instructional support services, counseling, mentoring, one-to-one tutoring, and other benefits for the Title I child? Why is there wording that mandates that a private or religious school MUST comply with the Civil Rights Act, (the school cannot deny admittance to a Title I choice child) 504 Rehabilitation Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, (MUST administer services for mental health disabilities), IDEA (MUST administer behavioral screening, response to interventions, positive behavioral interventions and supports, mental health wrap-around, BILLABLE MEDICAID SERVICES, mental health services or specialized student support services), General Education Provisions Act (GEPA).

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, you know full well that HR 5 will codify the Family Education Rights in Privacy Act (FERPA). This important Act, as it stands now, has been totally gutted due to President Obama’s Executive Order, EO 12866, January, 2012. FERPA now allows personally identifiable information on the student to be released without informed written parental consent. This personally identifiable information on the students includes anecdotal, psychological observations, analysis, and reeducation interventions in the affective domain by teachers, all tracked and trafficked.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, why must private and religious schools provide the following specialized Instructional support on an equitable basis with public school students?

Services defined as school counselors, social workers, school psychologists, or other qualified professional personnel providing assessment, diagnosis, counseling education, therapeutic and other necessary services defined in Sec. 602 IDEA, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, when in fact Common Core has been expanded into the mental health personal trait standards defined as social, emotional, and behavioral weaknesses now coded as a disability?

The State Education Agency names an ombudsman, “an official appointed to investigate individuals’ complaints against mal administration, especially that of public authorities,” for the following equitable services in each private and religious school: monitoring and enforcement requirements of private and religious schools, including reeducation in the affective domain. Obviously, under HR-5 the SEA will operate independently with no accountability to the state legislature which has surrendered its authority and responsibility over education and the students.

Referring to the concept of Title I funds that will “follow the child” and the super voucher called “direct student services”: the Title I fund that “follows the child” is going directly to every child, bypassing state government. No one at the public hearings explained that CHOICE, TITLE I FUNDS “FOLLOWING THE ‘at-risk’ CHILD” would be used to destroy the financial base of public schools which have elected school boards and are funded by local tax dollars. HR 5 is purposely designed to destroy the traditional public school system.

Furthermore, REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, there are scores of pages in your ESEA legislation that would expand CHARTER SCHOOLS OPERATING WITHOUT BOARDS ELECTED BY THE TAXPAYERS AS THEIR REPRESENTATIVES. THIS IS A SET UP FOR CHARTER SCHOOL TAKEOVER OF ALL EDUCATION with charter school authorizers to control private and religious schools. Yet, no one explained HOW these Title I funds “following” a CHOICE, TITLE I “at risk” CHILD will impact the intrusion into private and religious schools, which will be forced into all of the mandates that come with Common Core implementation and EVERY CHILD identified and funded through Title I and thereby subverting the mission of the private and religious school.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, you have crafted HR 5 behind closed doors and put it on the fast track to correspond to the “spitball” known as the ESEA Reauthorization.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, your HR 5 merged with the Senate version of ESEA REAUTHORIZATION will NATIONALIZE EDUCATION BYPASSING LOCAL CONTROL AND STATE CONTROL, ELIMINATING LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT, THE HALLMARK OF A FREE SOCIETY.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, your “super vouchers” cannot buy our children. No government can deny parents their God-given rights over their children. (Pierce vs Sisters, 1925) Are you really requiring parents to waive their rights?

Similar to the waivers HR 5 requires of the states? If so, we demand that you immediately produce the waiver by which parents would sign their children over to the federal government! Explain that one to God…and your own grandchildren.

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, “The family is the primary society. It does not exist by sufferance of the state.” (Dr. Charles E. Rice, correspondence February 5, 1996)

REPRESENTATIVE KLINE, if you care about a free America, you must stop HR-5.

Our children are not “mere creatures of the state.”(Pierce vs. Sisters, 1925)

In 1990 a federal investigation was completed against the Pennsylvania Department of Education, after filing a federal complaint against the Educational Quality Assessment, EQA, & the US Department of Education’s National Assessment of Educational Progress, NAEP, under the Protection of Pupils Rights Amendment. Forced the Pennsylvania EQA to be withdrawn. Forced the US Department of Education to do their job to investigate the psychological testing of children without informed written parental consent. NAEP was never investigated because the Department said I didn’t have standing, although documents had proven that NAEP did experimental research & used different states to pilot their agenda by embedding their test questions into the Pennsylvania EQA as well as other state tests.

The Year of Satan – Who Shall Lead? Part 4

CoexistChristians, are you prepared to turn away from the Father, Son & Holy Ghost? Are you prepared to face a One World Religion that says your God and Allah are one in the same? Are you prepared to fight for the right to worship as the Founding Fathers supported and then gave you the Constitutional rights to do?

To remind you, in a recent address Pope Francis made it a point to say that he believes that Muslims and Christians worship and pray to the “one God” that he also worships. This “all roads lead to the same God” philosophy is a hallmark of the one world religion that the global elite have been slowly building toward for decades. This in itself should be sending up all kinds of warning signals and a fear the world is really spinning out of control.

Now the Vatican is in full damage control mode after Pope Francis once again justifies and supports Muslim terrorists in regard to their attack on Paris. When speaking about the Charlie Hebdo murders Francis stated:  ““You cannot provoke, you cannot insult the faith of others,” Really? They do that to Christians and Catholics all the time and we don’t murder them!

On a flight to the Philippines a French reporter asked about the attack at Charlie Hebdo because of the paper’s mocking of the prophet Muhammad and Francis condemned those who kill in the name of religion, but then said, “If my good friend says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal.” Really Pope Francis?

First of all a punch is a far cry from murder and those deaths were at the hands of Islamic terrorists in the name of their PROPHET not Islam. Francis was obviously saying that the Islamists were justified in doing what they did because their “prophet” was insulted, hence the reference to his own mother being insulted.

If there is going to be a one world religion, there will have to be a bond formed between Roman Catholicism and Islam, not to mention all the denominations.  They are the two largest religious traditions on the planet, and so any truly “global religion” would definitely require the participation of both of them and an agreement as to who would lead.

With the Catholics that I know, I cannot envision them accepting this even if it is mandated by the Pope. And who shall decide what that religion is going to be.

So it is with great interest that we note that the Vatican, which represents 1B+ Catholics and Islam which claims more than 1B+ Muslim adherents, have begun to merge and join forces.

It is also of importance to notice that atheists and far-left liberals all over the world support Islam and even push educating our children in public schools about the “Religion of Peace.” The videos of beheadings and mass executions do not affect them. And obviously, their tiresome mantra re:  “Separation of Church and State” doesn’t apply to Islam.

Pope and MuslimsThis past June, for the first time in history, Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran filled the Vatican in a move claimed by Pope Francis to usher in peace between Israelis and Palestinians. What do the two things have to do with each other?  How can Muslims/Islam profess to be the one and only religion of peace when facets of their belief murder for the sake of murdering in the name of their Mohammad?

Either the Pope is developing dementia considering his age or he does believe he is the False Prophet to lead the One World Religion. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

This is one reason why what Pope Francis has already had to say about Islam is so noteworthy.  I believe it is time to explain to you some things regarding Islam, Shari’ah and the Qur’an.

Islam, if it is a religion, it is not just a religion. Islam is a total system of life and contains within itself a particular social, judicial and political system which includes geo-political aspirations – the conquest and administration of ultimate rule. The Qur’an itself tells you this.

They have no desire to sit and talk. Those of the Muslim Brotherhood try to tell us those committing the murders and rapes are terrorists – not good Muslims. This may be true, however those of the Muslim Brotherhood teach their boys at Mosque to recruit and indoctrinate their friends. The Muslim Brotherhood supported Hitler – serving in his troops and spying on Hitler’s enemies. Due to the large number of Muslim volunteers, the Handschar Divisions were the largest of Hitler’s 38 Waffen-SS divisions.

I see Muslim’s to be like the unusual “platypus” – a mammal which is duck-billed, lays eggs and is also venomous enough to cause severe pain or kill. It even has a category of its own.

“We, as infidels in the eyes of our enemy, need to understand the danger we face: A totalitarian ideology – whether its origin is mainstream or marginal – threatens to enslave, dominate, and murder us in order to realize its vision for global conquest.” ~ Brigitte Gabriel from “They Must Be Stopped”.

Shari’ah is comprised of several authoritative Islamic texts, the chief of which is the Qur’an. Muslims understand the Qur’an to be the undisputed holy revelation of Allah to the prophet Muhammad for ALL Muslims.

The Qur’an, or Book, represents the most important source of Islamic law, being the ultimate word of the Divine. Remember, the Qur’an is to the Muslims as is the Bible AND the Constitution is to Americans. The Qur’an is not simply a book seen by Muslims as a book of law since it is a book that gives THEM clarification of every matter.

The word al-Kitah (‘the book’) indicates the significance of textual authority in the Islamic legal mind. Therefore, it is considered the first source of Islamic law and is to be respected more than any human-made law because to a Muslim these laws were given by Allah to Muhammad.

Don’t you wish we as Americans could use our Bible and the Constitution with the same authority? In actuality, the Constitution is based on the morals and values of God, i.e., the Bible, along with a great deal of good sense – there are NO egos in the Constitution.

Individual government sources and school districts are allowing Islamic children to address their prayer times during school, but children of other religions are prohibited from saying a prayer at graduation, thanking God for their success or even having a bible study or bringing a bible to school. OUR Constitution gives us the right to worship the same as the Muslims. Something is very upside down. http://www.americaismyname.org/islam.html

Recently Duke University, a Methodist campus, had announced they were going to allow the Muslim call to prayer every Friday on campus by means of a chant, the call or adhan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower. That decision has been reversed for several reasons; however other religious denominations have not asked to perform such prayers.

Christians and Judeo-Christians worship the same God and respect each other’s differences in their belief’s regarding Jesus. This is why the actions and words of Pope Francis are so important to remember.

Israelis, Palestinians as well as Christians and Catholics have found themselves scratching their heads as they attempt to decipher the words and actions of this pope, wondering if he has a side and if so, what direction is he intending to support.

While in Bethlehem, he paused and prayed at the security wall showing a clear support for Palestine. Francis placed a wreath at the grave of Theodor Herzl, the founder of the Zionist movement and father of the modern state of Israel. He visited Yad Vashem, sitting with Holocaust survivors, and kissed their hands stating: “the Shoah has no equal in horror; calling it “a great evil… such as never happened under the heavens.”

Pope and ImanThe Pope is walking a very thin line here, but then the Popes have all always been given a place of honor by all countries as if he would be representing a ‘super power’. He may think he represents the world and all religions, but he does not. However, he is certainly dipping his opinions into everything while engaging in the politics of other countries i.e., his involvement in the Cuba/U.S. understanding.

Understand also that most of the Christians in the Middle East are Palestinians. The Pope is smart enough to know the terror and danger to those Christians is NOT from Israel, but from the active Islamic terrorists.

Quoting remarks he made during his very first ecumenical meeting:

“I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.” (I seem to remember they call upon Allah and then through Muhammad – certainly not the Christian way). 

“The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.” 

How can God and Allah be the same when Muslims deny that Jesus Christ is also God? So either Pope Francis is denying the divinity of Jesus Christ, or he is exhibiting a frightening ignorance of basic Christian theology, (and I don’t believe either of these is the case) and there is some other agenda at work here.

During one same meeting, Pope Francis stated:  “In this, we feel close even to all those men and women who, whilst not recognizing themselves belonging to any religious tradition, feel themselves nevertheless to be in search of truth, goodness and the beauty of God, and who are our precious allies in efforts to defend the dignity of man, in building a peaceful coexistence among people and in guarding Creation carefully”. Is this really how the Pope sees Muslim terrorists?

It is one thing to love people and to seek to build friendships with them, but it is another thing entirely to throw out the most basic beliefs of your faith that you supposedly represent in order to promote a specific agenda.

Do we believe the 900 year old prophecy indicating that Pope Francis would be the last Pope? Some believe that anyone who believes what I am telling you is actually playing the Illuminati game and a form of indoctrination. But how can that be when Revelation 13 clearly lays out the Beast (dragon) and they that worship him.

IRS: Illegal, Illicit, Immoral & Inhuman

Kent Hovind: Political Prisoner? By Chuck Baldwin

Kent Hovind is a creation-science evangelist and Baptist minister who has already served eight years of a ten-year prison sentence for alleged tax evasion. Kent has a master’s degree in education. He founded and operated Creation Science Evangelism and has traveled extensively presenting creation-science lectures. He has debated evolutionists in over one hundred debates across the country. Kent also operated Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, Florida. This was a very popular creation-science museum/theme park. Kent also produced scores of videos on the subject of creation-science that have circled the globe and been translated in over thirty languages. Many people affectionately refer to Kent as “Dr. Dino.” He and his wife have three children; and all three of their children (all grown) worked alongside of him in the ministry.

Kent and I were college classmates for one year in Michigan. I was a sophomore when Kent transferred to the school from Illinois. I transferred colleges after that year. Kent stayed and graduated from the college in Michigan. After graduation in 1975, my wife and I moved to Pensacola, Florida, to begin our ministerial work. Some years later, Kent and his family also moved to Pensacola. So, I’ve known Kent a long time.

Kent considered his ministry a church and the people who worked for him as missionaries. He did not incorporate under the 501c3 non-profit organization status. Of course, the Internal Revenue Code states that churches are not required to do so; that, as a church, they automatically have tax-exempt status. Accordingly, Kent believed his ministry was tax-exempt.

Nevertheless, in 2004, IRS agents raided Kent’s home and ultimately brought multiple counts of tax-evasion-type charges, including “structuring,” against him. “Structuring” means deliberately making cash deposits or withdrawals of just under the supposed reporting level of ten thousand dollars. (Egad! God forbid that the IRS not know the details of our banking transactions.) In 2006, Kent went to trial and was convicted on all counts and sentenced to ten years in federal prison. He has been there ever since.

But now the story gets bizarre. Federal prosecutors are currently bringing charges of mail fraud against Kent for using the mail system from inside prison to challenge the lien that the IRS placed upon his property. And, are you ready for this? They want Kent to serve an additional twenty to one hundred years in prison. Obviously, even if he received twenty years, this amounts to a life sentence.

See this report:

IRS vs. Kent Hovind: Imprisoned Evolutionary Foe Now Facing New Charges, Life Behind Bars

By contrast, the Rev. Al Sharpton is reported to owe nearly $1.5 million in overdue taxes and penalties from many years ago. But our federal government doesn’t put Mr. Sharpton in the Big House; it invites him to the White House instead.

See the report here:

Sharpton Owes Nearly $1.5 Million In Back Taxes

Regardless of where one comes down on the whole tax-exempt status issue for churches and non-profit organizations, here is a very relevant fact: the average time spent behind bars for tax “crimes” is between two to five years. For instance, Pete Rose served five months; Chuck Berry served four months; Aldo Gucci served one year; Sun Myung Moon served eighteen months; and Leona Helmsley served four years. Kent has already served much more time than any of those people did.

To help put it in perspective even further, the infamous Chicago gangster, Al Capone, was released after eight years in prison. And, as everyone knows, the only reason the government put him prison for tax evasion was because they couldn’t obtain the evidence they needed to convict him of murder, racketeering, bribery, etc. Yet, our federal government wants to keep a Christian minister–who never committed an act of violence against anyone–in prison for the rest of his natural life. In truth, there are thousands of people who have been convicted of some form of homicide who have not spent as many years in prison as Kent has already.

Back in 2001, restaurant owner, fisherman, and ship builder, Frank Patti (also of Pensacola, Florida) was indicted on 24 counts of tax evasion of more than $12 million. He was sentenced to 79 months in prison and released after serving but 39 months. Kent has already served almost 100 months.

After witnessing the Frank Patti case, I wrote this in 2002: “The prospect of local businessman Frank Patti spending 8 years in federal prison for tax evasion causes me to once again reflect upon the justness of throwing people in jail for nonviolent crimes.

“I believe it is past time for America to examine its practice of locking people up for nonviolent crimes. Even though the United States is far from being the most populous country in the world, we incarcerate more people than any other nation. According to recent reports, there are more than two million people behind bars in U.S. jails and prisons [now the number exceeds six million]. Many of these people are there for crimes in which no one was physically injured or killed and, therefore, pose little or no threat to society.

“Furthermore, it seems that this infatuation with locking people up serves more the interests of ever-burgeoning government bureaucracies than the interests of justice. A breadwinner behind bars means more welfare, more food stamps, and more dependence upon government, not to mention more government jobs, of course.

“With the federal government increasingly encroaching into the area of crime and punishment and with an exploding number of new laws continually being created, more and more people are losing their freedom over crimes that have more to do with offending the powers of government than injuring the lives of innocent people. Such a system hardly promotes justice.”

These comments do not even take into account the question as to whether refusing to pay personal income taxes to Uncle Sam should even be regarded as a crime at all. The income tax was initially sold to the American people as being a “voluntary” tax, remember? Regardless, the federal government treats the income tax as obligatory and most jurors have the attitude, “If I have to pay taxes, so does this defendant,” which is why most juries never acquit folks charged with tax evasion.

In Kent’s case, the argument was that his ministry was a church and as such should have been automatically tax exempt.

What Kent’s case does show is that the IRS can make its own decisions as to who and what owes taxes, the 501c3 non-profit organization status for churches notwithstanding. Charges of tax evasion are very subjective to the whims of the IRS–as Al Sharpton proves. And let’s not forget the Lois Lerner version of selective tax enforcement that targeted conservative organizations. And there is nothing new about that. The federal government has been using the IRS to intimidate or silence individuals or groups it does not like for many, many years under both Republican and Democrat administrations.

While I will not elaborate on this issue here (I’ve done so many times already in this column), this is just another example of the danger of the 501c3 tax exempt status for churches. With the way the IRS can subjectively interpret and enforce the tax code with impunity, a church or so-called non-profit organization that accepts tax-exempt status, can literally be “damned if you do and damned if you don’t.” It’s mostly to do with politics. Remember, it is the IRS–NOT THE CHURCH–that ultimately defines whether an organization is qualified to be tax-exempt. What the Internal Revenue Code stipulates about churches being automatically tax-exempt means NOTHING to the IRS. You must remember that!

In the case of Kent Hovind, one has to wonder if he is actually being treated as a political prisoner. A life sentence for tax evasion? Whoever heard of such a thing?

Then again, I am reminded of the way our government treated former Idaho Congressman George Hansen. His book “To Harass Our People” (about the IRS) should be regarded as a must-read for every lover of liberty. Then, after you read the book, find out how our federal government railroaded him into a prison sentence and how it mercilessly tortured him afterward. It will make your hair stand on end.

Then, after reading what our federal government did to one of its own congressmen, try to convince yourself that our federal government would NOT do almost anything to anyone. And if this is true for American citizens (and it is) imagine how our federal government (CIA, military Dark Ops, etc.) treats foreign governments–even those it once befriended. Come on, folks. Turn off FOX News long enough to start thinking for yourself a little bit.

If you would like to sound off regarding the obvious injustice being committed against Kent Hovind, there is a website set up for that purpose. See it here:

Free Kent Hovind

If enough people rally to Kent’s defense, the IRS might rethink its attempt to keep him in prison for the rest of his life. Like most dark forces, the IRS loves darkness and hates light. Whether you think Kent is guilty or not, eight years is enough! Please help spread a little light for Kent Hovind.

P.S. Once again, I am in touch with a group of patriot Christians near BRADENTON, FLORIDA, who very much desire to start a new non-501c3 fellowship. As soon as this group can grow a little more, I will take my team and conduct a Liberty Church Project conference for these folks. If you live in or near BRADENTON, FLORIDA, and would like to join this group, here is an email that you can use to connect with them. Hopefully, there will soon be enough people that we can see a brand new non-501c3 church established in BRADENTON, FLORIDA.
