Welcome To the Global Neighborhood –

Why Are Your Children Still in Public School?  By Anita Hoge

Dear Friends,

Another school year has rolled around.  The Federal legislation, ESSA, has passed which strip your rights away as a parent.  (Did you sign a parent engagement letter or conduct compact?  I hope not.) Teachers are transmitting data on your family and children to the federal government in the SLDS. The techniques teachers are being trained to impart on your children are techniques only certified psychologists and psychiatrists can practice.  I’ve warned you but … your kids are still in school.

What are you doing to protect your children, really?  An Opt-Out of tests is meaningless when arbitrary, observational data is collected on the behavior of your children. These behavioral techniques are embedded in the curriculum and everyday classes.

Academics have been dumbed-down and most of the school day is relegated to social, emotional, and behavioral rewards, punishments, stimulus, response animal conditioning. But you do not recognize it. Seven states have been selected for experimental research on your children in the social, emotional, behavioral conditioning in the affective domain, but I didn’t hear any screaming from Pennsylvania parents or any other state.

HooverBut, there’s more. The Feds aren’t finished with your family and kids yet. The force of the new law will force everyone to comply.  Spirited children will be found through CHILD FIND. Aggressive behavior once deemed, “oh, he’s just a boy” will be gone. Creative children will become depressed and not want to go to school.  Happy children are gone. Strong willed children, smashed. Shy children will be re-mediated with psychological manipulation, daily – Interventions, interventions, interventions galore. They will not stop. Your child will become confused, pliable and recycled until he/she thinks it is normal to be in a prison called school. It’s called conditioning – BF Skinner conditioning.  Starting in universal fed pre-school- they won’t have a chance.

DSM Codes will be tallied into the NCES/IES data warehouse. MEDICAID will be billed for psych interventions. Your child will have a mental health disability for minor infractions and personality traits that are normal human feelings…pain, anguish, disappointment, elation, frustration, sadness, anger, anxiety, love, fear, hate, all of these emotions that are part of our human endeavor…forming the character of your child. They will be gone. The slate that you imprinted on your child will be wiped clean. It is a new beginning of a new world. And, it is happening now as I write to you.

Be prepared for this: Once identified to the Feds, the whole new system under ObamaCare kicks in for Medicaid age 0-21 for case management for your family. An individual family service plan is in the works for caretakers to enter your home and remediate the family; moral knowing, moral feeling, moral acting…a global agenda.

I’m not kidding. I’m scared, so I know you will be when you read this note.

Sec of Ed Terrel Bell under the Reagan administration had laid out these plans called the Knowledge Network when he was supposed to eliminate the Department of Education which never happened. Bell believed parents should not be left to raise their own children. So here we are.  You bore them, clothe them, feed them, house them…they are your children, but the federal government owns “who they are”, their character, their thinking skills have turned against you and our country for the good of globalism. That is the plan. If you do not cooperate, they will condemn you, too, as an unfit parent. This is the “Village” that Hillary dreamed of.

I can only scream so loud, DANGER! DANGER!

Please read these 3 articles that will give you the overview you need to BEGIN to understand this process. The attachments are documents from the Knowledge Network. God bless the little children.

Our Federally Mandated Education System is Child Abuse! by DianeMarie

Parents – numerous researchers, psychologists, teachers and others have been warning you for years of what is coming down the pike using your children as the bait through the education system. Charter/Choice is not the answer since there now is not only government control over your children, but corporate money feeding the pot. Who but you care enough about your children to do something about this?

What can you do? First of all primary elections are going on all over the country for local, state and federal politicians. Stop relying on the news media or a political party to pick who the best candidates are. Do your research especially on those individuals who have the power over your children.

If someone is running and has in the past signed onto these egregious education bills fire them! If your local or state board of education willingly complies, vote them out or recall them. If they state they support Common Core dump them. This applies to almost everyone running for Congress – go here and here to see if your elected officials from your state voted for the Every Student’s Success Act. Take a hard look at your governor and other state officials right down to your local school boards – if they agreed to participate in the horror of Common Core – fire them! (Remember – Cruz, Rubio and Sanders did not bother to vote because they were campaigning – that was more important).

“In the United States the general thrust of education is directed toward political life; in Europe its main aim is to fit men for private life.” de Tocqueville 1831 

You owe nothing to these individuals, but you owe everything to your children. They are set to become wards of the state and your parental rights are being stripped right out from underneath you.

Bill Bennett, former Sec. of Education under Reagan was PAID by a lobbying firm to become the “Conservative Case for Common Core”. This man for years told America one of the most important things to him was our children and giving them a good education. Really? Liar!

Paid by the consulting firm DCI Group to write the op-ed perhaps explains why it doesn’t sound much like the writing of the Reagan appointee who agreed with his president at the time that there was no real necessity for a federal Department of Education. However, under the influence of Terrell Bell and other individuals he has changed his mind. Money usually does say it all!

It was very apparent in his op-ed that not only does he not know very much about the Common Core Standards, but it doesn’t take very much for him to leave whatever conservative principles he might have had in the past.

Bennett writes to conservatives, “First, we can all agree that there is a need for common standards of assessment in K-12 education.” Apparently out of touch with “we, the people,” if Bennett is a “conservative,” he would know that most Americans believe the individual states, and not the federal government, should decide their own education standards.

America has let Mike Huckabee get away with his dirty tricks of sitting with Jeb Bush’s group pushing for the preservation of the Common Core Standards. Huckabee even went so far as to have lunch in February, 2014 with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) (all who by the way have had their palms greased through this whole thing) telling them to get rid of the “Common Core” name as it had become toxic in households all over the country. He went on to state,” Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t retreat”. And just the previous December he sat on his TV show telling America he no longer supported Common Core. Which is it Rev. Huckabee?  Truth or dare?

And rebrand they did – did you know that? Almost every state participating in this Trojan Horse came up with ways to remove Common Core from their states standards!

  • Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has used an executive order to purge the name “Common Core” from the standards and refer to them, instead, as Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards
  • Iowa, the Common Core standards are now called The Iowa Core
  • Florida deleted the words “Common Core” from official education documents and replaced them with Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. In fact, Gov. Scott went too far as to write a letter to Arne Duncan telling him “Florida’s Education was Florida’s Education and not the federal governments. He openly lied to the parents of Florida in regard to what he was doing.

If they have lied to you vote them out! It doesn’t matter what PARTY they are with!

Huckabee like Gov’ s Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal all denounced their support of the Common Core Standards before announcing they were going to run for President. It does appear that Ted Cruz and Gov. Kasich are not the only ones who cannot stand behind their oaths. Kasich has continued to support the CCSS even when going into the primary process. Cruz stated he did not support the CCSS but co-signed with Senator Mike Lee on legislation to give an even stronger hold on our children’s education to include Home Schooling.

Even taking campaign funds to support an issue most parents in America are against is no different than “selling your soul for a few pieces of silver”, especially when the price paid is the futures of our children.

My websites and those of others have shared with you hours of research on how “they”, the boogie men of education” have planned for years to use the education system/your children to put in place their New World Order agenda under the United Nations.

Charlotte Iserbyt has been blowing the “whistle” since discovering in the 80’s while working as a Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan and she leaked information regarding an important technology grant for computerizing our children’s education. Charlotte realized this was a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America’s classrooms.

Project BEST: “Better Education Skills through Technology” brought about by the writings and a study done by America’s No.1 “change agent” Dr. John I. Goodlad at the Center for Educational Renewal at the University of Washington.  One book of which Iserbyt was critical, “Schooling for a Global Age”, citing the book as having less to do with fostering learning and mainly to do with psychological manipulation of students, possibly against the teaching of the child’s parents.

Senator Lamar Alexander (leader of bad education legislation), Bush family, Bill Ayers, Bill Gates, Linda Darling-Hammond and many more to include many foundations especially the Walmart Family  And Gates Foundations have poured millions/billions into bad education for our children and then they sit back and claim we need them even more because our education stats are still dropping.

Of course they are dropping because we have non-educators and indoctrinated “change agent” teachers playing manipulation games with our children’s education and their minds. Always finding grant money and legislated $$ for low income area schools – why are there low income school areas? Because the politicians have always wanted to keep them in that position – Never a “hand up” – always a “hand down”.

I will openly state that as a mother Diane Ravitch is the one who gets under my skin. She joined President George H.W. Bush’s cabinet as assistant secretary in charge of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement in the Department of Education (1991-1993) under Lamar Alexander stating she embraced the conservative mantra of standards and choice. However, if you were to read any of the books she wrote co-authored by one of the education devils Chester Finn, Jr. you might get a different picture:

  • Challenges to the Humanities May 1985 by Finn, Chester E., Jr. and Diane Ravitch
  • Against Mediocrity: The Humanities in America’s High Schools May 1, 1984 by Chester E. Finn and Diane Ravitch
  • What Do Our 17-Year-Olds Know: A Report on the First National Assessment of History and Literature Mar 1989 by Diane Ravitch and Chester E. Finn, Jr.

In Diane Ravitch’s book “Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools” she tells you she is answering all the questions about why American education is in crisis and gives ideas as to what reforms can be implemented. One of her ideas is to include the Sen. Lamar Alexander and Chester Finn idea to include Pre-K programs (get’um young) and her version of school choice.

Sadly, most of her recommendations are based on Abraham Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs” which gives you a good dose of the Humanistic Psychology worldview as he sees it. LINK

Anyone who would quote Maslow’s Humanistic Psychology (Third Force Psychology) is basing their worldview on the “whole child” theory, and the behavioral science that originated with Freud and was developed by B.F. Skinner.”  Anita Hoge

Ravitch later became a supporter of President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind, which he signed into law in 2002, but she changed her view after researching the consequences of NCLB on schools, students and teachers. Her 2010 book, “The Death and Life of the Great American School System,” is supposed to explain why she changed her mind.

Sorry, Diane the damage has been done! Last year while Alexander was doing his push for the changes in the NCLB garbage Ravitch wrote to him explaining why she found the current education system (CCSS) unacceptable for our children. Her letter is a good one, but when she stated as to why she admired him I thought I would be sick as Alexander has been pushing for “cradle to grave” federal control of our children since the early 80’s. How can you work for a person in that capacity and not know their agenda? Letter

Boogyman in the closetI see Alexander as a drooling, black monster hovering in the darkness waiting to snatch up young children to end up with glazed eyes and no thought processes of their own.

Being a conservative and wanting our government governing the country by the Constitution and not political correctness is not wrong, but this is where our elected’s have led our country. We get people that claim they are conservatives to run and they wear that badge proudly while campaigning, but when they leave for their state capitals and Washington they leave it on their dresser at home, tarnished and void of honesty. Remember we as Americans are operating under two different systems – one for them and one for us.  If we lie to the government it a felony, but if they lie to us it politics as usual.

Sadly and extremely dangerous has been the Charter/Choice agenda. John Oliver’s video here although a little brash is extremely truthful as to what is happening throughout the country in our Charter schools. The political push for our government to unite with corporate America using our children as “Human Collateral” is inhuman!

It’s not happening in just one state but all over the country and they are NOT being held accountable for their actions and our children are the ones suffering from all these grandiose ideas, thoughts and actions taking place across our country. Using our children for this should be an offense that comes with jail time. I forgot – child abuse does!

I rest my case!

DANGER: GÜLEN CHARTER SCHOOLS AND THE FETHULLAH GÜLEN MOVEMENT! Part 3

Replacing Erdoğan with Fethullah Gulen 

“God hath given you one face, and you make yourself another.” Shakespeare

So the CIA plan is to once again decide who should be at the head of a country. Not the people of Turkey, but American businessmen, politicians and the CIA. Dump Erdoğan and put someone they can control like Gülen in his place. In March 2016, Mort Abramowitz and Eric Edelman, the CIA-Gladio Zionist operatives, both former U.S. ambassadors to Turkey are the co-chairs of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Turkey Initiative called for Turkey’s President Erdogan to either resign or reform.

Seriously I ask you America, are you really happy all these decisions are being made for our citizenry through the United Nations and other foreign countries when it is we, the American people” that are expected to pay for their lies and manipulations?

But then “What difference does it make?” Hillary Clinton, herself personally and her foundations have taken Gülen and other funds from the Mid-East and South East Asia, but she has admitted to America that WE, the U.S. created and have funded Al Qaeda as a terrorist organization in the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war.

“What she doesn’t mention is that at no time in the course of the last 35 years has the US ceased to support and finance Al Qaeda as a means to destabilizing sovereign countries. It was ‘a pretty good idea’, says Hillary, and it remains a good idea today:

“Amply documented, the ISIS and Al Nusrah Mujahideen are recruited by NATO and the Turkish High command, with the support of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel”. “‘Let’s remember here, the people we are fighting today we began funding them twenty plus years ago”.

It has come to the point that Americans must admit to themselves that the Global War on Terror (GWOT) is being led by the U.S. and they aren’t trying as hard to hide the fact these days. And the Global war is not directed against Al Qaeda – we are using them as foot soldiers for our agenda.  Replace and change where WE want the changes to be regardless of who it hurts.

The UN Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) is an Office of the United Nations Secretariat established in January 1998 as the Department for Disarmament Affairs. Its goal is to promote nuclear disarmament, weapons of mass destruction, chemical and biological weapons, along with conventional weapons, especially landmines and small arms. Snopes will tell you this department does not exist.  Never trust Snopes!

In 1959 Fethullah Gülen gave his first speech in a Mosque near the border of Greece and Bulgaria stating “Islam needed to undergo a process of renewal and that Communism was the core evil of humanity”. From this, how could anyone have predicted that several decades later, Fethullah Gülen would stand at the helm of a powerful movement with several million followers with the full support of and operating in the United States?

Gülen and his followers are opportunistic and they know how to manipulate to their benefit. In the ‘80’s Gülen positioned himself against communism to gain the support of the US/CIA. He has now managed to align himself with the Jewish community with his “love and peace” act Institutions and since he never takes risks but rather determines the direction of his moves by the wind, and then his followers will do anything to succeed.

According to the United States government a law abiding American citizen who buys survival food, a returning veteran from Iraq and Americans who criticize the government are considered “domestic terrorists” by our elected government, current president and NWO progressives. I consider the current inner workings of our government, especially the CIA and know-it-all- neocon’s to be “home grown terrorists.

But yet our government will play “Russian roulette” with our lives with the very people who wish us dead. Muslims can tell you until the moon turns blue that Islam is a “religion of peace”, but their “bible” – the Qur’an, paints an entirely different picture.

Make no mistake, Gülen is a radical Islamist who hides secret and sinister agendas with his supposedly moderate message.  If an individual wants to be a serious follower of Gülen, he or she must obey absolutely the ideology and the practices of the community, and if anyone has a different opinion, especially one contrary to Gülen’s, then he or she is considered to have betrayed the Movement and consequently is not welcomed in the community. That is a great deal of power for one man.

Do you understand what different words and phrases of Islam mean? Islamophobia is a charge against Christians and it means you have offended them and should be put to death. Justice to a Muslim means Sharia and Sharia means if you don’t believe you are against Mohammad and his teaching and you are to die. Jihad is a “war” against the “infidels” and you are an infidel according to Mohammad.

As far back as 1997, both Mort Abramowitz and Eric Edelman have been attached to Fethullah Gülen and their military memorandum as they were involved in coup scenarios to push then Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan of the Welfare Party to resign and end his coalition government.

A Washington Post piece in 2014 by both of these men and Blaise Misztal, who is the director of National Security at the BPC, asked for regime change in Turkey and called on U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration to overthrow the Turkish government.

Then we have Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon official and committed neocon, who came out this past March stating his sympathy for a coup in Turkey. Originally published on the American Enterprise Institutes (AEI) website, Rubin openly encouraged the Turkish military to carry out an intervention, stating that the U.S. government would work with the new regime if that happened.

So here is another neocon that helped the regime change Iraq and destroyed that country; backed the Kurds while he started the partitioning of Iraq; tried to change the regime in Iran for decades and backed the neo-Nazis in Ukraine.

Reminding the readers, I revealed in my posting “CIA Supporting the Islamic Indoctrination of Our Children” that in January, 2016 a declassified US intelligence report from the Pentagon was released revealing Western support for Syria’s rebels and it also revealed an aided and abetted rise of the ‘Islamic State’. The report included high-level confirmation that the US-led strategy in Syria contributed directly to the rise of the Islamic State (IS).

The document showed that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, and that these “supporting powers” desired the emergence of a “Salafist Principality” in Syria to “isolate the Syrian regime.” It appears they intend to do the same in Turkey! Americans have had absolutely no say in any of these actions because we aren’t even supposed to know about them.

According to this report, this “beyond staggering” plot by the CIA to overthrow the current government of Turkey, replace Erdoğan with Gülen while at the same time utilizing Islamic State terrorists as “leverage” was first started in 2008 by the US military-intelligence establishment supported think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) whose board members are a “who’s who” of American military connected individuals, including former US Vice President Dick Cheney, and whose research papers advocated the United States creating what they call a “moderate Muslim” majority in the Middle East to battle Islamic extremists and whose target nation for this action was Turkey.

Aiding the CIA in this effort, this report continues, is the Turkish Imam Fethullah Gülen who came to the United States in 1999, gaining a “permanent visa” with help from former CIA officials which includes Graham Fuller.

Yet the FBI and other agencies have labeled Gülen “a radical Islamist”. Gülen was intentionally presented to America as a “peace loving Muslim” for him to be able to garner support in the right places including the America’s parents of his schools and politicians. Graham Fuller did a good job portraying this picture of Gülen.

In 2008, over the strong objections of the FBI, US State Department and Department of Homeland Security, Gülen managed to get a special Green Card and US permanent residency status. This was all done with the intervention of Morton Abramowitz and Graham E. Fuller.  According to former FBI Turkish translator and whistleblower, Sibel Edmonds, “Abramowitz, a known neocon, Israel lobbyist, CIA and State Department Operative, and Project on the New American Century signatory, has been one of Fethullah Gulen’s main handlers and backers.”

Graham Fuller Gulen

The report also supports the information that the FBI strongly resisted granting permanent residency status to Gülen and, according to secret US leaked cables parts of the American government have long believed that Gülen “is a ‘radical Islamist’ whose moderate message cloaks a mere sinister and radical agenda.” It was Graham Fuller’s job to make sure Gülen’s portrayal to the American public was that he was a “peace loving man”.

It was after CIA Fuller got Gülen into the United States, President Erdoğan established in Turkey the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2001 as the “moderate Muslim” platform desired by the AEI to effect change throughout the entire Middle East using part of Gülen’s massive wealth estimated between $22-50 billion.

In his 1999 speech Gülen is heard calling on his supporters to “work patiently and to creep silently into the institutions in order to seize power in the state“. Does this sound like “peace” to you?

The timing of Gülen’s arrival in the US is interesting as he was actually “defecting” from Turkey since Turkish prosecutors had demanded a ten-year sentence for Gülen for having “founded an organization that sought to destroy the secular apparatus of state and establish a theocratic state“. Gülen has not left the United States since.

America certainly is not the only country waking up. Other countries are taking a very serious look at the workings behind the Gülen schools, the turn-out of students and just how that money is flowing in and out of the Gülen workings.

It is to be understood the actual “patriotic” worth of the CIA’s actions depend upon who sits at the helm (Obama) and the director of the CIA always is a reflection of the POTUS. Hence we have John Brennan who you should recall refused to release 28 pages of the 911 Report because HE claimed it contained inaccurate information”. Well, couldn’t they release the pages and mark what the CIA claimed was inaccurate?

Brennan and CFRWho is John O. Brennan? Most certainly a globalist, supporter of the Obama agenda and a man who has worked for the CIA in enough positions for the past 25 years to write a book. Brennan withdrew his name from consideration for Director of the CIA in the first Obama administration over concerns about his support for transferring terror suspects to countries where they may be tortured while serving under President George W. Bush. Instead, Obama appointed Brennan Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism AND Assistant to the President, a new position which did not require Senate confirmation.

Placing Brennan in the position of Dir. of the CIA, has put one of Obama’s closet and most powerful aides in charge of an agency that has been transformed by more than a decade of secret wars. Working for Obama Brennan has:

  • Overseen the escalation of drone strikes in Pakistan in 2010.
  • Was the principal architect of the administration’s secret counterterrorism operations in Yemen.
  • Became a prominent public spokesman for the administration, appearing on television after foiled terrorist plots and giving speeches about the legality and morality of targeted killing.
  • Brennan denied his use of brutal interrogation methods and ended up with the prize job for Obama.
  • After Brennan was sworn into his office not on a Bible but on a copy of the Constitution rumors came out he had converted to Muslim while stationed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Liberal leaning Snopes claims the rumor is not true. (
    This would explain his very close relationship with Obama).
  • The Beauty of Islam according to John Brennan of which is what Obama learned as a child in Jakarta.
  • Spoke forcefully for closing the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and colleagues say he has argued for greater openness and clearer rules for targeted killing.
  • His reporting of the supposed raid to kill Osama bin Laden was proved to be inaccurate.

After leaving government service in 2005, Brennan became CEO of The Analysis Corporation, a security consulting business, and served as chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, an association of intelligence professionals.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped in the establishment of the Turkish Gülen Charter Schools and the Gülen Movement in the US with a brokered deal to split the revenue from the sale of the oil captured in Iraq by ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists, a  deal between Prime Minister Erdogan’s and Gülen’s factions in Turkey. The captured oil was subsequently driven to the Turkish border in oil truck caravans to be sold by Prime Minister Erdogan’s son.  For using her good offices to help Gülen, Clinton was paid an estimated $1 million – half to the Clinton Family Foundation and half to campaign coffers.

You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers … until the conditions are ripe, they [the followers] must continue like this. If they do something prematurely, the world will crush our heads, and Muslims will suffer everywhere, like in the tragedies in Algeria, like in 1982 in Syria … like in the yearly disasters and tragedies in Egypt. The time is not yet right. You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe, until we can shoulder the entire world and carry it … You must wait until such time as you have gotten all the state power, until you have brought to your side all the power of the constitutional institutions in Turkey … Until that time, any step taken would be too early—like breaking an egg without waiting the full forty days for it to hatch. It would be like killing the chick inside. The work to be done is in confronting the world. Now, I have expressed my feelings and thoughts to you all—in confidence … trusting your loyalty and secrecy. I know that when you leave here—just as you discard your empty juice boxes, you must discard the thoughts and the feelings that I expressed here.”  Fethullah Gülen  2002

 So America, Who Do We Have Running America’s Government? Where are the elected, supposedly Conservative Republicans who currently hold the majority of the seats in Congress? Nowhere to be found unless there is money to be handed out or a free trip to be taken! LINK

“The Chokehold on Our Children” Part 2

The ‘progressive’ movement has been a slow, evil virus which has floated over this country like a deadly cloud. It is a man, woman and child eating monster for anyone who is a patriot, Christian, conservative or just happens to not agree with them. It demands redistribution of wealth and loan shark style taxation – known and hidden. It wants your speech, guns and children to form another fascist/socialist/whatever you want to call it to control your very existence, just by a new name -New World Order and his brother in crime the One World Religion.

I call it Collectivism versus Individualism!

They have known for many, many years the road to accomplish this was through the education of your children using indoctrination.

Why the push on Charter Schools? Because they are an experiment which to date have proven they can create more scandals than all the traditional public schools in the country put together. They don’t tell you that do they?

Why is the Federal government pouring billions of $$ into Charter school funding and yet what they put in place to “fix” the traditional public schools is more Title I funds for low income which has never worked because at the same time they continue to tell them they will never get to college or make anything of themselves. They play games with the grade scoring, curriculum, go up and then down as a priority and continue to throw our money down the drain on junk ideas – hence no improvement.

The scandals – how do they happen? Go here – it is like reading a mystery novel! Pick your state or city and go for it!

Charter Choice 2How! By putting a financial chokehold on the Charter schools by getting in too deep because of the mega fees charged by the Management companies; creating inflammatory budgets and outlandish salary packages for principals; less than excellent teachers through Teach for America teachers rather than those educated to be teachers; far too lenient legislation leaving the elected boards with no actual control and when they do try to close a failing school, the state charter boards and management companies step in and beg to give a failing school another 2 years; charter school board members serving as board members of several schools within a management  company circle. One or two school board meetings a year; school principals without credentials – not to mention the real dirt!

Let’s take a look at New Orleans where after Katrina, their schools were so bad they decided the cure was to make the whole school district charter. The results have been devastating! Called the state-level Recovery School District it was originally presented as a temporary solution.

The purpose of government controlled school “they” told us was to prepare our children to be good citizens for the country and to be able to gain a college degree if they wished and go into the job market they wanted. They never wanted us to know that it was corporate whores who would be making all the decisions regarding our children’s education.

A clear danger sign of things to come for all parents should have been when the CEO of Exxon-Mobil wrote that threatening letter to the governor of PA to “get in line with the Common Core Standards” or else!

With many citizens displaced after Katrina and more than 7K citizens unemployed, most schools were taken away from local control, with no community input as the feds and venture philanthropists provided money for the development of charter schools with no comparable sum offered to rebuild the traditional public schools.

Now, New Orleans has a system of individual and charter management schools (CMO’s) where taxpayer and Parental Control has flown the coop.

Charter school vulturesWith limited public oversight and transparency, these CMOs have the control of the taxpayers money; teachers working 70+ hours a week; staffed primarily by young, non-local white teachers who have no idea how to equate to the black students in New Orleans. Teach for America (TFA) teachers have tripled with a large share of them in leadership positions with little or no experience. TFA teachers are working mostly in the “no excuses” charter schools including KIPP and Mastery Charter.

What are “no excuses” Charter schools? They claim that more rigorous and uniform teaching methods along with scripted curriculum geared to being successful on high-stakes tests is the path to success. It sounds great until you understand the path being used is a very deliberate behavior regime that they insist all the children follow which begins in kindergarten and consists of submission, obedience and self-control.

Not bad values until you understand this path also includes no opportunity for play, relaxation or extra-curricular activities because that is “wasted” time. And they are being tested, tested, tested!

It has also produced very high rates of suspension in these schools which in some cases is not being documented and is from the statistics, being aimed at the black students.

Don't Be Charter Fooled 2In 2 of the “no excuses” charter schools (KIPP and Mastery) data is no longer being used for “education quality”, but the very purpose of the school itself. With few exceptions, the curriculum is characterized by a narrow interpretation of state standards at the expense of all other material. Students rarely learn local history or current events. Instead, science and social studies were relegated to ancillary classes in the elementary school and reduced to the accumulation of vocabulary and lists of facts at the middle school.

What makes a No-Excuses School a No-Excuses School?

  • High behavioral and academic expectations for all students—these expectations are applied without exception for extenuating circumstance, hence the designation No-Excuses. No-Excuses. This means that no matter how troubling a student’s home-life may be, no matter what difficulties they may have to overcome in their neighborhood or family, a student is still expected to work hard and follow the school’s code of behavior. This attitude arises from an idealistic and, in fact, very radical assumption that lies at the heart of the No-Excuses movement: that every student, no matter what his or her background, is capable of high academic achievement and success in life.
  • A strict behavioral and disciplinary code that leaves little room for ambiguity or inconsistency—rules and punishments are laid out in Talmudic detail, usually in a document that is required—and tested—reading for all students and faculty at the beginning of the year. In many schools, tardiness, even by a couple of minutes, and uniform violation (a missing belt, bright nail-polish, etc.) lead to automatic detentions.

Silence seemed to be especially important in the hallways. At the sound of each bell at the middle school, students were expected to line up at “level zero” with their faces forward and hands behind their backs and, when given permission, step into the hallway and onto strips of black duct tape. There they waited for the command of an administrator: “John, you can move to your next class!

Students then marched until they reach the STOP sign on the floor. Then their pass is checked for hallway permission before moving on to the next class or “restroom” time. Behavior infractions are being administered through their iPhone for everyone to see.

“No excuses” is also being used to foster “social justice” of which they are told it is to help them get into college. Detroit’s story is as interesting and shows education has come to be an element of social justice robots.

Remind you of any the pictures you have seen of Hitler’s education?

Joan Goodman, a professor in the Graduate School of Education University of Pennsylvania (not one of my favorites but she is right here in this quote about the programs) “These schools start with the belief that there’s no reason for the large academic gaps that exist between poor minority students and more privileged children. They argue that if we just used better methods, demanded more, had higher expectations, enforced these higher expectations through very rigorous and uniform teaching methods and a very uniform and scripted curriculum geared to being successful on high-stakes tests, we can minimize or even eradicate these large gaps, high rates of drop outs and the academic failures of these children. To reach these objectives, these schools have developed very elaborate behavioral regimes that they insist all children follow, starting in kindergarten.”

Submission, obedience, and self-control are very large values being taught in the “no excuses” formatted Charter schools. They want kids to submit. You can’t really do this kind of instruction if you don’t have very submissive children who are capable of high levels of inhibition and do whatever they’re told.

“These schools are not geared to what students have to know – that is considered wasted time”. Play, relaxation or extra-curricular activities are not important. The view of time and strict discipline are related, by the way; in order to get these kids to attend over very long hours—they have extended days and extended weeks — you have to be tough with the kids, really severe. They want these kids to understand that when authority speaks you have to follow because that’s basic to learning.”

These schools also believe that behaviors that you might not think are directly related to academic learning can have a domino effect if left unaddressed. Getting up from your chair to go to the bathroom without explicit permission, for example, or not having your hands folded on your desk, or not looking at the teacher every minute, or not having your feet firmly planted on each side of the center of the desk are problematic behaviors. If you don’t conform to these rules then you are going to precipitate the next domino and the next domino. It’s going to have a cascading effect on your behavior and pretty soon you’re going to be very disruptive.

Discipline comes in the form of being isolated from the rest of the class – they have to wear different colored shirts, can’t talk even to ask questions, may sit on a lower bench than the other children. And it’s all about the deliberate shaming of the kids.

Mastery Charter Schools and Mastery Schools of Camden form a non-profit school network in Philadelphia, PA and Camden, NJ serving over 10,500 students in grades K-12.  “Our mission is to ensure that all students learn the academic and personal skills they need to succeed in higher education, compete in the global economy and pursue their dreams. This begins in kindergarten!”  KIPP schools format seems to fall in line with Mastery!

For years now, advocates of the “no excuses” brand of charter school have denied the obvious.  While loudly proclaiming the test scores and graduation rates of the students who remain at their schools are at the top, they have denied that their application processes combined with the harsh discipline environments that emphasize extreme conformity to extreme behavioral expectations are forms of “cream skimming” designed to drive out students less likely to burnish their reputations as “miracle factories.” (Low income students – hence all the offers from the feds to place charters in low income areas).

These schools claim to be targeting the low-income students to help bring them up to a higher standard yet it is these very ‘rules’ that are helping them bring the ‘cream to the top’ without seeming biased or racially defined.  These schools rates for children suspended, expelled or leaving all together far exceed the national averages.

You have heard of the “cream” rising to the top haven’t you? Helps their data figures!

Part of the means of obtaining the “cream” in their schools, they use extreme in-school discipline tactics that emphasize how only a certain type of child is welcome in the school, and discipline is often coupled with overt and covert pressure for parents to transfer struggling students out.  The evidence is by now substantial that charter schools in the “no excuses” category seek different applicants to their schools via complicated procedures prior to admissions lotteries, and once students enter they quickly seek to push out students who will not fully and promptly comply with their expectations.

Charter schools will tell you more than 90% of their students are passing tests and almost 100% get into college. Reformers want you to believe they are a success and they will never tell you there is any dishonesty going on with testing and data. Where is the data to prove these statements?

Education Monsters 2People like Jeb Bush, Huckabee and all the Charter school management companies will tell you they are serving the same students as traditional public schools – they just know how to do it better. They will tell you one of their goals is to beat the standings of Finland but even they have learned testing, especially teaching to a test for better scores, proves nothing. When in a discussion with these reformers and you tell them their students are actually not doing any better, they will revert to comparing different management schools rather than as a whole.

Mastery Learning was first introduced in the 1920’s suggesting this was the way to tap into an individual’s potential for learning. In the early 1960s the idea of mastery learning was revived in the form of programmed instruction. Other names used in reference to this are Competency Based Education, Performance Based Education and Student Centered Learning.

More and more of the current Charter school models are using this failed form of education and at the same time using different names for the same ole thing. Referring to our children as “human capital” and given as proof of the mentality of that is the corporate intrusion into our education systems all over the country.

The real main problem of this education is Mastery Learning supports the ideology that the individual students meet certain standards or learning outcomes, but since our children are NOT common and do learn different things at different paces – hence the ongoing failure of the use of this method of teaching. A more complete description of Mastery Learning can be found here which also includes Block’s reasoning behind Mastery Learning.

The powers to be have been experimenting with this education game since the late 80’s – the thoughts in their minds since the early 1900’s. Each time the experiment was put in place it was a failure and they knew the only way they could get this implemented all over the country was in the way they did it.

Keep in mind that the schools which claim to be teaching social and moral values may not necessarily be what you think are right for your children. In today’s educational system the mindset seems to be a more free thinking system – one that is addressing issues which conflict with conservative morals and values. Parents need to really look inside these schools and not assume that because they are a charter or private school that they are better than the traditional school their child is currently attending.

The words Charter and Private are just words – what is important is what is happening behind the closed doors.

I still have not been able to come to terms with the fact that OUR Commissioners/superintendents of our children’s education (who are supposed to have an education background) would deliberately do this to our children. It still comes down to money, power and control which also makes it extremely evil. Anyone involved in this scheme doesn’t deserve our respect and need to be sent home – charged with treason would be too good for them!

The Chokehold on Our Children! Part 1

In a nightmare world progressives are designing a civil society where little tots are to no longer be your little tots.  They are government-sought human resources to be raised as tomorrow’s anarchists.

The massive push to fund Pre-K and get a hold in our daycare centers by providing the funding is a single mothers dream. However, in reality it flows with the Communist way of thinking which is to have control of the children from birth through college. This mentality is endorsed by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R), Al Gore and Bill Ayers as a means to indoctrinate the children and build barriers between them and their parents.

How could anyone be against tax-subsidized Pre-K for all you ask? There are many ways. I will never understand why parents are so willing to let complete strangers have control of their children for 6-9 hours a day, 5-7 days a week.

If that chokehold on children is not Hitlerian, then what is?

“Those Obama initiatives are knockoffs of moldy-old Democratic policy chestnuts, such as former Vice President Al Gore’s push to fund preschool for all 3-year-olds at a cost to taxpayers of at least $50 billion over 10 years, left-wing actor/director Rob Reiner’s “I Am Your Child” campaign for universal preschool and child care, and Hillary Clinton’s various “It Takes a Village” schemes to expand Head Start from womb to work. With age comes fiefdom.” (Malkin).

Communist educationYou don’t believe Marxism is in the classroom? What do you think all the Bill Ayers taught teachers are spreading? The only group of “home grown” terrorist Americans who went to jail and came out to go to college to become teachers and were welcomed by the liberal colleges and universities to indoctrinate your children on your dimes.

In 2012 Diane Ravitz confused to her readers when a reader ask if Ms. Ravitz thought teachers were teaching  Marxism in the classroom and she responded addressing that “all teachers love children, to teach and their country”. Sorry Ms. Ravitz, most change agents of the 80’s were teachers and you didn’t answer the question.

Bertell Ollman, a college professor who states she has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses on Marxism for almost a decade—mainly at New York University, but also at Columbia University, Union College, and the old Free University of New York believes Marxism is not being taught correctly.

Has the Bogeyman entered the classrooms of our young children?  Marxism has been slowly infiltrating our lives since the early 20’s.  John Dewey is not a figment of anyone’s imagination.

Obama sees fit to once again put his feet and hands into the classrooms of our children encouraging parents to put their children in Pre-K even if they don’t work and he is made sure it was funded.

On Wednesday, December 17, 2014, the White House Summit on Early Education  unveiled nearly $1 billion in new “investments” to “expand access to high-quality early childhood education to every child in America” from “birth and continuing to age 5.” It’s a retread of President Obama’s 2013 State of the Union school-spending plan, which was a repackaging of his 2011 Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge program.

ChaChingDozens of corporations, foundations and individuals have agreed to dedicate a greater ongoing percentage of their philanthropy to expanding high quality early childhood programs and research as a strategy for achieving better education, health, social and economic outcomes, with commitments currently totaling more than $333 million.

Obama also announced over $750 million in federal funding for early learning programs through the Preschool Development Grants and Early Head Start-Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnerships, totaling more than $1 billion in critical investments in early childhood education announced today.

There are some pretty big Bogeymen out there to warp the minds of your children let alone the physical and mental abuse of the heavy push for our children to sit in a classroom all day long tied to a computer.

Cleverly they have incorporated the National Sexual Education Standards (NSES) throughout the curriculum of the English Language Arts and Math textbooks. Hurrah for Planned Parenthood (PP)!  This is to start in Kindergarten.

I have written about this push of sexual education for our children at such an early age before and it is just like the DARE drug program to stop drug use. Young children who are exposed to things they know nothing about are going to go about their own way to learn what it is all about – hence a large drug problem among young children. The same thing is happening with all the “sexual” information being thrown at our young children. Hence, the increase of sexual promiscuity and unwed mothers.

Come here my pretty!Just what kind of men and women do we have running the government of our country that they would allow these inexcusable antics to go on especially without informing parents? But then, after all, what do the legislators have to fear – we re-elect them no matter what they do to us and now they are in full force to kidnap our children. “Come here my little pretty”!

Have you ever read “The State of the American Child: Securing Our Children’s Future” presented by the 111th Congress?  You certainly should!

Obama’s White House contends that “studies show for every dollar we invest in early childhood education, we see a rate of return of $7 or more.”  PROVE IT!

They made this statement based on the results of a Preschool in Michigan, run at a cost of $19,000 per child more than a half-century ago, and a similar program in North Carolina called the Abecedarian Early Intervention Project.

The Abecedarian Early Intervention Project was focused on “poor” children stating they are behind and less prepared than those who come from a home of greater wealth. The massive cost of this program was $13,900 per child per year. Researchers advised caution about the positive reports pointing out there were many analytical discrepancies in published reports, including unexplained changes in sample sizes between different assessments and publications.

My question is – did the Federal government pay these schools to participate in this project? It wouldn’t be the first time.

Brookings Institute found in a study that full-time pre-K in 2 states; GA and OK “have had, at best, only small impacts on later academic achievements.” In fact, Georgia elementary-school students’ test scores are mediocre, and Oklahoma test scores have been on the decline for the past decade.

Keep in mind a large majority of our children are already in Pre-K by a government forced economic system of both parents having to work to make ends meet. What isn’t in place is most of the children are not available for the clutches of the Fed’s – yet.

The “problem” isn’t most families’ lack of access to preschool. It’s Washington’s lack of access to your kids for their institutionalized warehousing, data mining, and pedagogical propaganda schemes.

Always keep this in mind – presented to be included in the Congressional Record of January 10, 1963, by then Rep. A.S. Herlong, Jr., of Florida, the official record – Current Communist Goals from the Communist Manifesto in part:

  1. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind.
  2. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  3. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teacher’s associations. Put the party-line in all textbooks.
  4. Breakdown cultural standards of morality.
  5. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as normal, natural and healthy. (the NSES) do exactly that.
  6. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce.

The Preschool Development Grants program will got $250 million for 2015. And it’s another competition pitting states against each other for approval.

Never forget the 1983 production of the Reagan Department of Education under the evil leadership of Terrell Bell producing “A Nation at Risk:  The Imperative for Education Reform” supported by Bill Bennett and Newt Gingrich. Bell created the National Commission on Excellence in Education and those appointed produced A Nation at Risk.

This document produced by Reagan’s “blue ribbon” education commission proposed to use schools as factories for more effectively turning Millennials and every generation that follows into usable raw material for corporate production.

Though filled with right-wing rhetoric in content, it reads like a Soviet proclamation on industrial production. Students are redefined as inputs in a system to maximize American corporate competitiveness, productivity and profits which is where we are today.

It does sound like todays Common Core State Standards and the communist way of life.

HitlerDr. Shirley McCune appearing at the Kansas Governor’s Summit on Education in 1989 with Sen. Alexander stated:  “…what we are into is a total restructuring of the society. What is happening in America today…is not simply a change 4 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 capitol 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.”

And what kind of radically changed, restructured New Age society and education did Dr. McCune have in mind? In her co-authored The Light Shall Set You Free (1996), she talked about a “point of light,” and stated: “Only the souls who are ready to receive the new curriculum will elect to raise their vibrations to match those required to enter the New Age. Did you know that the animals’ souls are the souls of our future children? We are entering the Age of Aquarius…. The goal for all of humanity who will enter the new millennium is to become androgynous…. Educational systems, businesses, political structures and governments all built on self-serving principals, for example, are crumbling, only to be reborn through tremendous pain into higher forms.”

Even more frightening than what she said is the fact at the same time she was a research assistant in School-to-Work at Arizona State University, and then she became an administrative assistant to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Washington.

And you wonder how education got to where it is today!

That Dr. McCune is a New Age proponent who on November 2, 1989 had used the term “human resource development” more than once is perhaps significant in that earlier in that year, New Age networking Sen. Claiborne Pell had introduced Senate Joint Resolution 135, the “National Commission on Human Resource Development Act,” co-sponsored by Senators Al Gore and Nancy Kassebaum. The resolution was to establish the Center for Human Resource Development and spoke of the “normal aspiration of all citizens to more fully achieve their potential in body, mind and spirit…. [and] there is a role for government to assist in research and education on techniques that promote the… fuller realization of human potential.” Testifying for the measure was Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School, who explained the “relaxation response” as experienced by those who practice Zen, Yoga and Transcendental Meditation. The resolution probably would have passed the Senate except that Senator Dan Coates (R) put a “hold” on it and it died. Similar bills – you will be amazed!

In case some of you weren’t old enough to realize it in 1989, Newsweek magazine referred to Bill Clinton as the “New Age President,” and the “Renaissance Weekend” he had attended for years was referred to by The New York Times as a “New Age Retreat.” He was also at this 1989 Summit.

Interestingly Sen. Lamar Alexander stated at the same 1989 Summit:  “The New American 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 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 (not educate) children for the global workforce. Privatizing education through Charter Schools allows these radical design teams and other private entities such as The Edison Project (Jeb Bush’s buddy) to rob American citizens of their own tax-supported schools. This plan is being supported by both the right and the left-wing political groups who appear to have met in the radical mid-center on education, social control and a global economy.

Education has now been changed forever:

  • Purpose of Education was to transform society from individualism to collectivism
  • Fact based education is no longer the primary focus of education
  • Students are to be considered as HUMAN CAPITAL and education’s purpose is to train student’s to work

So to fall in line with the dreams of Sen. Alexander we now have ‘The SEED Foundation’ along with SEED charter schools are emerging. How are they different?

It is a college-prep, public boarding Charter school providing a 24-hour-a-day, five-day-a-week learning environment for underserved students from sixth through twelfth grade in Miami-Dade, FL. Founder’s Rajiv Vinnakota and Eric Elder are recipients of Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network’s Use Your Life Award. That in its self should give any parent a warm and fuzzy feeling. Go here to see where all the money is coming from to support this foundation. (pages 18-21) That is certainly a lot of support.

Does anyone know the definition of an underserved student? Once again all other students are left out of the equation whether it is a good program or not. This educational society is continually putting barriers up and causing division between what they call underserved or lower income and the rest of the American students.

Aren’t you at least a little curious as to why there is so much attention to our babies? Don’t you feel like you have lost control over your own family?

In Nov., 2014, Obama signed into law a bipartisan bill to improve the quality of federally subsidized child care provided by the Child Care and Development Block Grant. The bill sets stronger health and safety standards for subsidized care, makes it easier for parents to find and keep quality child care, and takes steps to improve the quality of child care so that children get quality early childhood development services. Sounds wonderful until you realize your children are under the control of the Fed’s.

A national poll released by the First Five Years Fund earlier this year found 71 percent of voters, including 60 percent of Republicans, support greater federal investments and involvement in early childhood education.

The problem I have with the First Five Years Fund is they state they are “bipartisan, however they don’t state who they are, who sits on their board of directors or how they receive their funding. The web site mission:  Our mission is to create a smarter, stronger, healthier, and more productive America through early childhood education for disadvantaged children through bi-partisan federal advocacy.

What is the deal that every program, grant, voucher, charter school, or scholarship program is being geared to low-income or disadvantaged children?  Is it that they will fall in line quicker? Are more vulnerable? More easily indoctrinated? Aren’t the rest of the children in this country worth all of these tax dollars being spent on them through public education, especially when in the final assessment it is all indoctrinating our children?

If not, you need to show me the reason all these legislators, non-educators, corporate types and Soros, Gates, Bush and Walton level financiers are so interested in our children, especially those so very young.

If what I am saying is not the truth, then why aren’t all these investors investing in our public schools to fix what they say is wrong rather than creating baskets full of other ideas, organizations, legislation, failures and control? I don’t buy it is all Unions and I don’t support them either.

Are America’s parents going to continue to keep a blind eye, deaf ears and continue to allow the Federal government and private industry to invade our homes and take away our rights as parents to raise and take care of our children as we believe it should be done – rather than on the backs of the federal government and the misappropriation of our hard earned tax dollars?

Only you have the answer to this!

DANGER: GÜLEN CHARTER SCHOOLS AND THE FETHULLAH GÜLEN MOVEMENT! Part 2

Watch this little one with care, filled with God, and great in worth; Babes, before they come to birth, shine above in azure air.  God in bounty gives us this, they are sent to us on earth, All his wisdom in their mirth, all his mercy in their kiss. Victor Hugo

Knowing how we have been misled by those we trusted hurts, especially from people like the Bush Clan who most Republicans blindly put a great deal of faith, time and money into. Knowing there are those who are going to support a person no matter what, hurts more.

This information has been researched and reported by many and has even been in our courts, so please read and help us remove the Gülen Charter schools and the entire movement from our shores and bring awareness as to our governments involvement in changing the world thru the hidden efforts of the CIA and world leaders.

In addition to his schools in the US, Gülen has schools and Madrasas (Arabic word for educational institutions) all over the world. His Madrasas were outlawed in countries like Russia and Uzbekistan and his schools were under investigation in the Netherlands. Plus, the origin of his immense wealth, which he uses to open and operate these schools all over the world, is unclear. As proven previously a great deal of it is American tax $$.

Graham Fuller GulenThe CIA’s Graham Fuller, former handler of Fethullah Gülen, is currently one of the top American experts on Turkey and the Middle East. As a former CIA agent it was HE who endorsed Gülen to be allowed to not only enter the U.S., but take up residence in the Poconos Mountains, start over 100+ Charter schools collecting our tax dollars in the process along with the freedom to indoctrinate our children.

One of the frequently discussed issues in contemporary Turkey is the political influence of “The Gülen Movement,” (Hizmet) or the religious network inspired by the teachings of Fethullah Gülen. Almost all observers including the FBI agree that the movement needs to be taken as a serious “radical threat”. The very fact that one part the U.S. government gave this man permanent residency in our country claiming him to be an excellent scholar, while the rest of the country including the FBI look at Gülen for what he is – a “radical Muslim” while using our children and working within the confines and protection of our government is treasonous to me.

In an interview last year Fuller was asked if the U.S. would be sending Gülen back to Turkey as Prime Minister Erdogan had asked and Fuller basically stated Erdogan has no proof of any of the charges against Gülen and he would be staying in the US – Obama agreed.

With the very large role Fuller played in bringing Gülen to the U.S. (and keeping him here) he still fails to admit the dangers the Gülen schools and movement is placing on Americans within their very borders. Could this be because of Fuller’s link to other “radical” Muslims? You betcha!

In my previous article I explained his role in the Gülen “invasion” and now interesting facts are coming out in regard to how and when Gülen actually started working for the CIA.

Some Americans (especially in Washington) are upset with Wikileaks for the information he has released. I am not as I consider most of what he released was informing “we the people” of the back door maneuvers of our government and most of them against us – their main enemy.

Some of the information released contained details on US unease over Gülen’s operations with the classified documents recounting U.S. officials’ growing concern over the large numbers of Turkish men seeking H-1B visas to work at American charter schools founded and funded by Fethullah Gülen and OUR tax $$.

Turkeys” consular officials had noticed that most of these applicants share a common characteristic – they are generally evasive about their purpose of travel to the US. One destination for visa holders was the Truebright Science Academy, a charter school founded in North Philly by followers of Gülen. An analysis of H1-B visas conducted by the Inquirer showed that the number granted for Gülen charter schools has grown substantially since that 2006 report. More than 2,500 have been issued since 2007. The acting chief executive at Truebright, Tansu Cidav, has declined to discuss the school’s operation. State pension records show Turkish staffers at Truebright are paid more than their American counterparts. In the last school year, a Turkish math teacher who was not certified and spoke little English was paid $54,000; a certified American science teacher was paid $40,200. Keep in mind ALL Gülen workers including teachers are to give back 40% of their pay check which is then in turn given to one of the Gülen Foundations. That’s an additional $2,160 a year of OUR tax dollars funding GÜLEN!

TrueBright was refused a renewal of their contract and closed in December, 2014 because of numerous “failures”:  failure to meet academic goals, lack of a defined curriculum, failure to attract students from its catchment area, not offering world languages or Advanced Placement courses as promised. TrueBright since its opening had not only been part of FBI and Dept. of Labor investigations but sued by several American employees alleging discrimination.

Another perfect example of the system not following up on the certification of teachers working in Charter schools and their unelected school boards. They are pleased to be able to offer these people less money and no benefits until caught (Teach for America teachers?) Most non-American teachers at the Gülen schools are uncertified in this country and here on the H-1B non-immigrant status visas. One-third of this schools teachers alone were from Turkey.

The reason they need to use so many H-1B visas is they bring over a person and they work for 6 months then they let them go and bring in a replacement. The first person then just stays in the US if and when forced to leave. Most are not!

Am I the only one here screaming at the parents who complain their children cannot understand most of the Turkish teachers? Then why in the heck (I am being nice) is your child in that school??? Didn’t you tour it or talk to anyone there before enrolling your child? Talk about putting the cart before the horse!

Can you believe the president of TrueBright’s unelected parent/teachers association was a minister – Rev. James W. Wright, Sr., who stated he had no knowledge that the school administration had lied about the number of seniors who had graduated from the school – they said 50 students and it was only 33.

Now the real wake-up call!

Former top CIA official Graham Fuller spent 20 years as operations officer in Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong. In 1982 Fuller was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at the CIA, and in 1986, under Ronald Reagan, he became the Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, with overall responsibility for national level strategic forecasting.

Fuller Samantha Fuller TsarniFollowing the days of the Boston bombings a brand new name began to emerge – Ruslan Tsarnaev. Discovered to be the bomber’s uncle, he became known to the press as Uncle Ruslan.  “Ruslan” gained notoriety for the ferocity with which he denounced his own nephews and their alleged Islamic radicalism. He said all the right things the right way to the “authorities”. But wait – who is this guy anyway?

Uncle Ruslan, a lawyer, and his nephews and their family are from Chechnya! They are Russian Muslims!

As more information came to light about these brothers we find they had worked with the CIA/USAID and they were working and living at the home of none other than our reported Graham Fuller, strong proponent of political Islam, inspiration for the Iran-Contra affair, character reference on more than one occasion for Gülen, former Rand Corp. analyst and former FATHER-IN-LAW to Uncle Ruslan. Oops!

Fuller was also the senior CIA person who was the architect of the Afghan Islamic fundamentalist Mujahideen war against the Soviets and he was also involved in creating a global jihad network, presumably acting on behalf of CIA interests.

Are Americans to still believe the CIA is not behind the increase of “radical Islam” in this country?

Yessir its true – Graham Fuller’s daughter Samantha Fuller had married Ruslan Tsarnaev (who has changed his name to Ruslan Tsarni) and he is the uncle of Tamerlane and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Bombers. Ruslan and Samantha Fuller were married in the early 1990’s and divorced sometime in 2004.

More than a little embarrassed, Fuller spoke to the press claiming Ruslan was “homesick” for Chechnya and that his English was “shaky”. Yet a few days later a very English-fluent Ruslan gave his press conference from his very affluent Maryland home denouncing his nephews to the world.

In 1995, Ruslan Tsarnaev incorporated the Congress of Chechen International Organizations in Maryland, using on the incorporation documents the very same address as Fuller’s home address in Rockville Maryland. Tsarnaev also at one time worked for one of the Dick Cheney’s Halliburton shell companies used as a front to obtain oil contracts from the Kazakhstan government and in 2005 was also working for the CIA/USAID which is part of the State Dept. and actually a front for the CIA allowing access to an array of places around the globe.

(USAID were the ones responsible through the Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (Canvas) who took Middle East students and trained them in readiness for the ‘Arab Spring’. CANVAS is part-funded and supported by globalist foundations like George Soros’s Freedom House and Open Society Institute, as well as CIA-linked National Endowment for Democracy and, of course, the full frontal USAID – our $$.)

Through the investigation of the Boston Bombings, Fuller continued to state it was “absurd” to try and link the CIA to the Boston bombings. Really?

In addition, Fuller has long made the argument that Islam is a potentially useful geopolitical tool for the United States to manipulate for their own use. He has been quoted as saying, “The policy of guiding the evolution of Islam and of helping them against our adversaries worked marvelously well in Afghanistan against the Russians. The same doctrines can still be used to destabilize what remains of Russian power, and especially to counter the Chinese influence in Central Asia.”

Tamerlane and Dzhokhar came to the US in 2003 with their parents and sisters. In early 2011 Russian officials asked the FBI to look after Tamerlane’s activities. “The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s (Russia) region to join unspecified underground groups.”

The summer of 2011 interview of Tamerlane and his family didn’t reveal any problems according to the FBI. In January 2012 Tamerlane returned to Russia for 6 months and supposition is that he spent that time with Chechen Islamic rebels. His father claims he never left the US.

I might be a female, but when I went to school the object was to have you learn and become smarter – not like today where you are to leave after 12 years of schooling as a “dumbed down” indoctrinated shell! The CIA has its name tagged all over many dirty dealings which include things done inside and outside the US which have and continue to affect our lives and not necessarily in a good way.

Imam Gülen’s “movement” is described as “religiously-inspired” and some refer to Gülen as a scholar, however he only attended school through the 5th grade, but he seems to have smart enough people under him running his several hundred educational organizations such as K–12 schools, universities, and language schools (mostly English) that have been established around the world, mainly in Central Asia, Caucasus, Balkans, and 146 Charter schools in the U.S. You understand, Gülen claims he has NOTHING personally to do with the schools or foundations. But, isn’t Islam a religion?

How did he receive his U.S. residency status while he was ‘wanted’ by the then Turkish Government, is no longer a mystery. Now, this man owns and operates charter schools all across America obtaining our tax dollars through various foundations despite the fact his Madrasas were outlawed in countries like Russia and Uzbekistan.

Of course, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped in the establishment of the Turkish Gülen Charter Schools and the Gülen Movement in the US with a brokered deal to split the revenue from the sale of the oil captured in Iraq by ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists, a  deal made between Prime Minister Erdogan’s and Gülen’s factions in Turkey and overseen by the CIA. The captured oil was subsequently driven to the Turkish border in oil truck caravans to be sold by Prime Minister Erdogan’s son.  For using her good offices to help Gülen, Clinton was paid an estimated $1 million with half going to the Clinton Family Foundation and half to the Clinton Presidential Campaign (payment to a political campaign by a foreigner is in violation of US Federal Campaign Laws). “So what difference does it make?”

Never forget that “a poor man’s war is terrorism while a rich man’s terrorism is war” – and sometimes those lines cross for the purposes of big-power politics.

DANGER: GULEN CHARTER SCHOOLS AND THE FETHULLAH GULEN MOVEMENT! Part 1

“The charter school experiment has resulted in the United States being the only country in the world where the Gülen Movementhas been able to establish schools fully funded by  the host country’s taxpayers.”  The Joke’s on US!

The world should never forget “Islam is a Human time bomb ignited by a hair trigger called hatred – them toward us”.

The Gulen Charter schools and the Gulen Movement must be removed from the United States. I recently wrote an article regarding the CIA’s role in allowing Sheikh Mohammed Fethullah Gulen into this country and put all the blame for their invasion into our school systems upon the CIA and uninformed and unquestioning state and local school boards. Now they are invading our military bases. It is time for parents to understand the full danger involved in this Jihad. For the 2015-2016 school year we have 155 Gulen Charter schools in 25 states with Texas (52) and Ohio (17) having the most. In 2011, Texas only had 33.

All Americans must take the time to read “Turkey’s Islamic Supremacist Cult and its Contributions to the Civilization Jihad Volume 8” by Christopher Holton and Clare Lopez. Read a little bit every night, but read it! LINK

Since February 1997, the National Security Council, the all-powerful institution which includes the civilian and military leaders of the country, has repeatedly placed political Islam at the top of its list of threats to this nation and vowed to “refuse all compromise” in its fight against religious radicalism. A few months later, the net was widened and the list of potential suspects grew longer: investigations have been launched against hundreds of civil servants, teachers, governors and local leaders, accused of being too close to the “forces of reaction”

I would like to remind the readers that it was the CIA who supported Gulen being allowed to come into this country supposedly because he was ill with the endorsement of Graham Fuller, now former CIA agent. Sorry CIA but diabetes can be treated all over the world. The FBI had started several investigations against the Gulen operation for numerous reasons, one of them to prevent Gulen from being granted permanent residency in America and to have him deported. Even though the FBI had determined Gulen to be a “Radical Islamist”, the Islamic angels in Obama’s White House, CIA and Clinton’s State Dept. reigned in the FBI preventing them from indicting and deporting Gulen and his whole operation. Hum!

Taking a look back in history in case you weren’t aware, the Brennan’s CIA is and has been supporting the Islamic indoctrination of our U.S. children and the whole program here in the U.S. was fundamentally developed by George Soros Center for American Progress and Gulen.  The object is to “force feed” our children “Radical Islamic” educational programs and incentives.

Talk about your own government supporting working from inside to ruin YOUR country!

The past and present governors of Texas told their citizens they were protecting their children by not participating in the Common Core ruination of our education system, but instead they have allowed the Gulen movement to grow within the state and also allowing the Gulen Institute to be at home on the grounds of the University of Houston.

The Institute website talks a good talk as does Fethullah and all his mouthpieces, but the research that has been done is undeniable. With speakers like this how could anyone go wrong?

Gulen Speakers Names

Even if you don’t have any children currently in school or a Gulen Charter school, Americans need to understand the damage being done here to our children and the internal conversion to Jihad being paid for by YOU!

Gulen Charter schools are disguised by several different names: Concept, Horizon Science Academy’s, Paragon, Sonoran, LISA Academy, Magnolia, and many, many more. Florida for example has 7 Gulen schools all with different lead names.

Something most Americans don’t know is that Gulen and Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan were best of friends with the same objectives until the Turkish government announced a plan to shutter private schools — many owned by the Gulen movement that help Turkish students prepare for college entrance exams. Two men with big ego’s! They both want to be in charge!

Gulen loves to claim he is all about fighting “poverty, disunity, and ignorance, but his underlying actions tell another story. The use of H-1B visas to bring teachers to America for their schools is also a farce. Local teachers are being passed up for teaching jobs within the Gulen schools with the schools claiming America’s teachers are not smart enough or they don’t have enough education to teach at their STEM schools. No one else in this country applies for more H1B visa’s than Gulen.

The U.S. taxpayer dollars being gained by the Fethullah Gulen operation is undeniable. In 2011, Truebright Science Academy alone received more than $3 million from the Philadelphia School District for its 348 pupils.

The respected German weekly ‘Der Spiegel’ also raised serious questions about Fethullah Gulen and his worldwide movement in a pair of highly critical articles published in 2012 and 2014. The magazine cited individuals who broke ties with Gulen and who characterize Hizmet as an ‘ultraconservative secret society’ and Gulen himself as an ideologue who tolerates no dissent,’ is ‘only interested in power and influence,’ and ‘dreams of a new age in which Islam will dominate the West returning to the ways of the Ottoman Empire.” This description has been repeated over and over again.

Besides the American taxpayers making the Gulen Movement rich, their followers and teachers give as much as 40% of their earnings to the following, yet the Movement has no headquarters, no address, is not registered anywhere, and has no central bank account.

Collectively the Gulen “movement” and the Gulen schools are under their own Charter School Management Co., Charter Educational Services & Resources formerly known as Grace Institute for Educational Research & Resources.

When I first began investigating Gulen and his schools, what I found so painful was  finding the government of this country so twisted that we have the CIA bringing Fethullah Gulen into this country and the FBI looking into their fraud and Jihad activities and our government is once again taking the lead on ruining America.

Look what it got us:  The CIA coming up with this less than brilliant idea, believed they could control Gulen and at the same time abuse the religious structure in America as a cover to advance their design of global control. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped in the establishment of the Turkish Gulen Charter Schools in the US, and brokered a deal to split the revenue from the sale of the oil captured in Iraq by ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists, between Prime Minister Erdogan’s and Sheikh Mohammed Gulen’s factions in Turkey (the captured oil was subsequently driven to the Turkish border in oil truck caravans to be sold by Prime Minister Erdogan’s son).

For using her good offices to help Sheikh Mohammed Gulen, Clinton was paid an estimated $1 million; payment was made to both the Clinton Family Foundation and the Clinton Presidential Campaign (payment to a political campaign by a foreigner is in violation of US Federal Campaign Laws). If we were to remind Mrs. Clinton of this I am sure her response would be, “What difference does it make”.

This makes me question if our State Governors are getting a stipend for allowing the Gulen school’s within their states. What say you Rick Perry and John Kasich?

In 2008 Bill Clinton made a speech praising Gulen at the Third Annual Friendship Dinner organized by the Turkish Cultural Center of New York (a Gulenist organization). The website Citizens Against Special Interest Lobbying in Public Schools (CASILIPS), later confirm Hillary Clinton’s involvement:

“However, the most probable reason for Bill Clinton’s attendance was the Gulenists’ numerous contributions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Clinton Foundation. A sampling can be seen in this Table. All these contributions came from individuals identified as Gulenist based in their affiliations with Gulenist organizations or schools.”

 Not only the Clinton’s, but education’s main destroyer Bill Gates has used his foundation to also fund the Gulen movement. They are after all Charter schools and that is the road to ruination. In 2007, through the Texas (again) High School Project, the Gates Foundation shelled out $10,550,000 to the Cosmos Foundation, another Gulen enterprise which operates several publicly funded Gulen Charter schools in Texas.

One teacher from the South stated, “the Gülen movement’s ultimate goal is to open charter schools in the U.S. to funnel U.S. tax dollars back into the Gülen movement in Turkey. They skim just enough off the public taxpayers from these charter schools so it won’t look suspicious.” She stated this after her class had won a free cultural trip to Turkey through the Atlantic Institute. The Atlantic and Peace Islands Institute’s, are both Gulen enterprises.

Both of these Institutes claim they are supporting “shared values” and send out press releases claiming they are against the killings (Paris) and offer dinner’s celebrating Gulen, Ramadan, Table of Abraham and Interfaith principals.  Peace Islands Institute website is a must read.

Were you aware the United States has an Institute of Peace in D.C. and that Fethullah Gulen is recognized by that Institute to be a “spirited advocate for peace”?

Anyone wishing to form a national coalition to remove all Fethullah Gulen activities from the U.S. may contact me at info@americaismyname.org

Stealing Control of Our Children!

U.S. Government Once Again Invading Our Homes!

I wrote about this in 2012 shortly after they released the National Sexuality Education Standards (NSES) which is when we first got wind of it. Kathleen Sebelius at the time was Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) and she was all for this “policy”.

It wasn’t long after the NSES standards were released we learned how sexuality was being intertwined throughout the Common Core curriculum. This link will show you how the Sexuality Standards are set up grade by grade (go to page 12).

Kathleen Sebelius was a very good Democrat but a lousy individual when it came to overseeing the welfare of the children of this country.

Recently the U.S. Department of Health in conjunction with the HHS have pushed what they believe to be their role as “Big Daddy” and have released a draft document which outlines for all the plan on how our government plans to treat the families. Families will be considered EQUAL partners with the Federal government, but on an UNEQUAL basis the government will have the right to intervene and monitor how your children are being raised at home and how they act in the classroom.

The policy statement of the recent draft states, “This policy statement is to provide recommendations from the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Education (ED) on systematically engaging families in their children’s development, learning, and wellness, across early childhood and elementary education settings.

Now parents will have a set of “standards” or “Parenting Intervention” on how they are supposed to raise their children all for the sole purpose to “ensure your child’s social-emotional and behavioral needs are met.”

Does the Federal government really think so much of themselves and so little of our parents that they believe they don’t know how to raise their children? There have always been parents who might not care as the others do or who didn’t do as good as job as some, but for the most part the majority of the parents in this country have and are doing a pretty darn good job considering the numerous roadblocks which are continually placed in their way. The Federal government needs to get out of our day to day lives.

Make no mistake, this “family” intrusion starts even before your child is born. Home visits will be the rule of the day and they do not have to give you a reason for their intrusion either.

Regarding “family engagement,” the two unconstitutional bureaucracies (USDOE and HHS) openly state their joint position: families are “equal partners” in everything from children’s “development” and “education” to their “wellness across all settings.” Virtually no area of family life, including the health and “mental health” of parents, as well as a family’s “attitudes” and even its “housing,” would be free from government intrusion under the government’s Orwellian vision. Even vague notions of “family wellness,” as defined by bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., would be put under a government microscope. “Parenting interventions” will be used to ensure compliance.

If you thought we were kidding when we told you the passage of the ESSA “Every Student Succeeds Act” was not the groundwork leading to the total control of your children from cradle to grave, maybe this will make parents believers.

“It is the position of the Departments of HHS and Education that all early childhood programs and schools recognize families as equal partners in improving children’s development, learning and wellness across all settings, and over the course of their children’s developmental and educational experiences,” reads the draft policy. And it gets even more bizarre: As defined in the document, family means “all the people who play a role in a child’s life and interact with a child’s early childhood program or school.”

I have to ask the question if just because the Federal Government puts something in place (it is not even passed legislation) is it Constitutional and what will the ramifications be if we don’t open our doors to them?

Hitler's ChildrenOr is this a “feeler” to see how many parents speak out about this coming “HITLER” type intrusion into our families?

The document argues that Big Brother needs to know about essentially everything, for the supposed benefit of the child it wants to “partner” in caring for. Citing “research,” the policy statement claims that “the institutions where children learn cannot ignore family wellness if they want to fulfill their mission to prepare children for school and academic success.” In other words, every aspect of family life is now fair game under the pretext of checking “family wellness.”

While government usurpation of parental rights and responsibilities is hardly a new phenomenon, the Obama administration has pushed the agenda hard. Citing Obama’s so-called “My Brother’s Keeper” scheme, the document also touts ensuring that “children are learning across settings and that all adults who teach and care for them are strong partners with shared expectations and aligned strategies.” Thinking that Big Brother is going to align its “strategies” and “expectations” to those of parents — rather than the other way around — is naïve at best.

This part is precious:  “The “principles” underlying the agenda are spelled out explicitly, including “equal partnerships between families and professionals.” In fact, the paper calls for promoting “shared responsibility” between government “professionals” and families “for children’s healthy development, learning and wellness.” The paper also calls for “jointly” developing and monitoring goals for the children at home and the classroom, with government employees told to “engage parents as capable, competent partners.”

After all the failures and corruption we have seen our government involved in are we supposed to trust “untrained government hacks” to decide if our children are being raised properly or if they are healthy?

The world of “psychiatry” is to play a large role in this also by “ensuring with constant monitoring and communication regarding our children’s social, emotional and behavioral health. Who is going to PAY for all of this?

There are lots of “recommendations” — nudge, wink — for local governments, too. If parent “partners” are not partnering in a way approved of by Big Brother for example, local officials should “identify supports that will be offered to parents such as evidence-based parenting interventions.” By interventions, they mean exactly what you think they mean. Local arms of Big Brother should also seek out “community partners” that can “provide comprehensive services, such as health, mental health, or housing assistance to meet families’ basic needs,” the document explains.

Leading into the ESSA “Community Schools”?

I don’t know who I am angrier at – parents or these morons who have been allowed to continually screw us! Just remember as with Obama’s Executive Orders, there is nowhere in this document that states if you are a Democrat, Liberal or voted for Obama you are exempt from this tyranny.

The document calls for various government programs to visit your house. “To support ongoing relationship building with families, programs and schools and should conduct periodic home visits so that teachers and families can get to know each other and communicate about children’s goals, strengths, challenges, and progress,” the policy statement says, adding that if home visits are not possible for “all families,” other requirements should be imposed.

Schools are to now assess your “families’ needs and wants” and even to provide training for parents on how to raise their children. Indeed, every aspect of parents’ lives is in the crosshairs. “LEAs, schools and programs can support family wellbeing through school social workers, by implementing community schools models or approaches, or using family support staff and mental health consultants.”

These are the very same people that believe it is perfectly alright to take your daughter to have an abortion without telling her parents she is even pregnant.

Coalition for Community Schools.Your Obama approved COMMUNITY SCHOOLS being referred to as “parental-replacement centers” are in full swing and they intend for this to move into a massive expansion. These full service schools are set to play a key role in the broader agenda of control to include every aspect of a child’s life to include even their dentistry, nutrition and mental health.

Hum! Same initials as for the Common Core Standards!

In case you aren’t aware the ESSA also includes provisions for deploying “mental health” programs against parents and/or community members. Former Edu. Secretary Arne Duncan liked to brag that he was going to turn our children into “green” and “global” citizens with the weapon being UNESCO under the over-reaching arms of the United Nations. This even calls for government to use education as a “weapon” even calling for the government to have “some kids” 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In case you aren’t aware Florida’s first Charter/Boarding school opened in Miami/Dade in 2014 called “the Seed School of Miami”. Most of their Board of Directors are lawyers but the one I like best is Virginia Emmons, co-founder of Educate Tomorrow who graduated with a degree in “Community and Social Change” from the Univ. of Miami in 2012.

It is supposedly a college-preparatory, public boarding school which is of course tuition-free “except for our tax $$” public charter school. The SEED Foundation opened their first school 15 years ago in Washington, D.C.

Maybe it is the parents who are willing to send their children off to “boarding” schools who this policy should apply to – not to parents who are deeply involved in their children’s lives and education as a whole.

And though the Democrats are no angels, this whole ESSA was passed by and put together by REPUBLICANS with Sen. Lamar Alexander (globalist) in the lead knowing full well what they were doing – laying out their path to a global world and the New World Order.

Hey debate moderators, how about asking Jeb Bush about this. His “beloved” daddy is the first one to bring up a “New World Order” beginning with the push for Charter schools and Vouchers. Then “baby boy” Jeb carried the staff while governor to really push. Jeb Bush can say whatever he likes but research shows what a corrupt and evil family this is!

This whole document which has not been passed as law but is being treated as “POLICY”, and is very clear in stating federal bureaucrats are starting from the false assumption that Big Brother is in charge of raising children, and that parents may be called upon to help out as “partners.” It also purports to provide justification for governments to pry into every aspect of family life — an extraordinarily dangerous proposition that is a hallmark of totalitarian governments. The mindset evidenced throughout the document is beyond paternalistic and condescending to parents.

What is not clear at this point is if this “POLICY” is not followed by the local school districts what will happen to them. Take their funding away? We keep trying to tell the state governments to STOP sending the Feds any of our money and tell them to take their grants and yearly dole out and put them where the sun doesn’t shine. States would have more money than they would know what to do with.

The document remains online at the federal government’s website. It appears to have been put out during or after the fall of 2015.

I do wonder if this collaboration is also going to be checking on the families of legislators and even Obama since it seems his daughter is not immune from getting herself into fixes by being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Are these animals that are pushing this agenda against America’s families exempt?

Admittedly, a major part of the problem is that many parents have bought into the notion that they can, or even should, hand over their children to government “professionals” and “experts” to be raised, monitored, tracked, manipulated, and “developed.” But Big Brother has certainly played a giant role in encouraging that dangerous idea, most recently illustrated in the policy statement referring to families as “equal partners” in child rearing.

Maybe this will help parents understand this is no joke!

Though this publication is focused on Head Start it is still parental intrusion through “Parental Intervention”.

MONEY! MONEY! GIVE ME MORE MONEY!

Some parents in Tennessee were SHOCKED to hear what their 5th grade children were asked at school. And it wasn’t asked by another student. It was being asked by the STATE of TENNESSEE!

Tennessee is ending its administration of the PARCC test with six pages of personal questions.

mONEY tREETen other states went into this deal for MONEY! Have our elected officials no souls? The Federal Dept. of Education will take no responsibility in this because “the states willingly participated for once again MONEY from the FEDS. They don’t have any souls because it was sold to the Feds in 1965.

MONEY! MONEY! GIVE ME MORE MONEY!

Well, the Tennessee Department of Education was awarded a discretionary grant from the U.S. Department of Education to “support district and school measurement of, and targeted programmatic interventions to improve, conditions for learning.” (A “Government Grant” ALWAYS has strings attached. It means they will do things that we wouldn’t allow them to do without the grant money as bribery, like Racing to the Top (4 levels of grants), stimulus, common core, and paying outrageous salaries to “consultants”). Tennessee is one of 11 states that were awarded this grant, but Tennessee is the only state that has developed its own survey to determine conditions for learning and that intend to “connect academic data to the conditions for learning data.”

failure jailAnyway, this grant awarded by the US Department of Education (that’s important to note, file that in the back of your head) paid for a slick website, same people to create invasive surveys to anonymously collect personal information about our children, and staff to run the program. Government wastefulness and invasion of privacy at its finest, ladies and gentlemen! (Click HERE to see the website for yourself)

What were those questions that had students giggling in embarrassment and parents blushing in horror?

There are 2 different surveys (Middle School & High School), each containing 88 personal questions. We couldn’t really tell a difference between the 2 surveys, other than the title page.

Asked of 5th graders (ages 9 & 10):

“During this school year, how often has anyone called you an insulting or bad name at school having to do with…
…your sexuality?” (These are 9 & 10 year old children!!!)
…your religion?” (None of the government’s business!)
…your weight or physical appearance?” (Are you trying to give the kids an inferiority complex?)
…how much money your family makes?” (Again, none of your beeswax, government!)

“In the last 30 days, I…
…used or tried tobacco products”
…drank alcohol”
…drank five or more servings of alcohol in a row”
…used or tried marijuana”
…used or tried other drugs or substances to get high”

“I think that…
…students are sometimes distracted in class because they are drunk or high.” (9 & 10 year olds didn’t know what this meant!)
…it makes me uncomfortable when other students bring drugs or alcohol to school or school-sponsored events.” (really? well, let’s just plant some ideas in their young minds!)

And, in case students don’t know what these terms mean, they go ahead and educate them by including all sorts of examples at the top of the survey. If your 9 year old didn’t know they could sniff products to get high, they sure know now… Thank you, government!

U.S. Department of Education Awards $38.8 Million in Safe and Supportive School Grants
October 5, 2010

Contact: Jo Ann Webb, (202) 401-1576

FDOE SealThe U.S. Department of Education has awarded $38.8 million in Safe and Supportive School (S3) grants to 11 states to measure school safety at the building level and to help intervene in those schools with the greatest safety needs. The goal of the grants is create and support safe and drug-free learning environments and to increase academic success for students in these high-risk schools.

“It’s important that we be able to measure school safety,” Secretary Duncan said. “These grants will allow states to do that by surveying the real experts–students themselves.”

Funds may be used by state education agencies to develop measurement systems to assess conditions for learning within individual schools, including school safety, and to make this information publicly available. Using this data, the grant recipients will work in collaboration with participating local educational agencies to improve the learning environment within schools facing the biggest challenges.

The grant program is managed by the Department’s Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, which supports efforts to create safe schools, ensure the health and well-being of students, teach students good citizenship and character, respond to crisis, and prevent drug and alcohol abuse. The office also coordinates the Department’s efforts in these areas with other federal agencies.

A complete list of the 11 grant awards follows:

Arizona Department of Education
$5,874,815

California Department of Education
$2,220,770

Iowa Department of Education
3,477,752

Kansas State Department of Education
$2,422,880

Louisiana Department of Education
$3,211,259

Maryland State Department of Education
$3,093,212

Michigan Department of Education
$5,997,018

South Carolina Department of Education
$1,685,180

Tennessee Department of Education
$3,302,071

West Virginia Department of Education
$2,244,586

Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
$3,500,000

Where do we go from here? Well you can see what Florida did this week – totally ignoring the wishes of parents/taxpayers from all over the state.

SO WHO IS MIKE HUCKABEE – A Traitor to Children?

The surfacing action of Huckabee to start “putting out feelers” as to his presidential electability is certainly an issue to look at with his involvement with Jeb Bush and Huckabee’s support of the Common Core Standards and now – doing a total turn around on his national weekly Fox show.

It appears that Huckabee is better suited to politics than being a man of the cloth. Ministers are to be held to a higher standard – I am not saying it is right, but it just goes with the occupation or calling. Huckabee is a player of words and I would put him into the new class of “New World Evangelists” who refuse to address the direction our country is taking to ruination.

He is a lot like Rick Warren having even attended seminary at the same time and the same place as Warren.

HUckabee 5We now know that his speech to the Council of State School Officers (CCSSO) was worded very differently than his announcement on his Fox show. Not only that, it appears the governor has also learned “double speak” lately.

At the CCSSO meeting Huckabee urged state education officials to get rid of the “Common Core” name because it has become “toxic.” Hum! However, Huckabee intends to continue to support the standards and it would appear this is the case as he is still listed on Jeb Bush’s Common Core site as a supporter. And – why was Huckabee invited to speak to the CCSSO?

“Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t retreat,” Huckabee reportedly told CCSSO members. This of course is what some states are doing especially Florida. Florida lawmakers, Governor Scott and Commissioner of Education Stewart have all said they want to delete “Common Core” from official documents and replace it with the friendly sounding “Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.” Supposedly by changing the name of the standards everyone will forget they are the grandfather of the Common Core and the complete ruination of our children’s education.

In Florida, the Sunshine State Standards, adopted in 1996 became the Common Core State Standards in 2010.

This past November, Joe Follick a spokesman for the FL Dept. of Education stated, “Given the input that the state has taken and the changes that are likely to be made, “it would be disingenuous to call them common core standards”.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) used an executive order to strip the name “Common Core” from the state’s new math and reading standards for public schools. In Iowa, the same standards are now called “The Iowa Core.”

Tea Party members and others have argued that the standards amount to a federal intrusion in education, while supporters have tried to make the resistors believe that the development of the standards was spearheaded by governors and education officials.

Just the fact the president and Arne Duncan were ready and waiting on the sidelines with Race To The Top (RTTT) grants to the states shows the Federal intrusion. The grants from RTTT pushed the states to agree to share all their information on our children, their families and the teachers to the huge data mining system. All of this done BEFORE the standards were written and without any state legislation being passed authorizing it.

Back to good ole Huckabee! In June, 2013 Huckabee came out swinging in defense of the CCS. He sent a letter to lawmakers in Oklahoma, urging them to support Common Core. “Like many of you, I’ve heard the argument these standards ‘threaten local control’ of what’s being taught in Oklahoma classrooms,” Huckabee wrote. “Speaking from one conservative to another let me assure you this simply is not true. States and local school districts will determine how they want to teach kids, what curriculum to use, and which textbooks to use.
Hucktobee
You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all the time. Huckabee is no conservative. His gubernatorial record shows that.

His lack of understanding the full scope of this “infection” – standards are to be used as the goals to reach and the curriculum is what is used to gain those goals is irresponsible. With the likes of Pearson and every Tom, Dick and Harry company out there writing curriculum to align with the standards For Profit – there is no escape from this but total elimination.

All of Huckabee’s remarks are like a playbook from Jeb Bush’s Foundation.

We can ask the question why did Huckabee choose to agree with the likes of Jeb Bush and his cronies rather than the American parents who had bothered to do their research! Why did he choose to ignore people like Professor’s Sandra Stotsky and James Milgram, but instead decided to follow the like-minded support of David Coleman, Linda Darling-Hammond, Bill Ayers, George Soros and Jeb Bush types?

This causes one to wonder what Huckabee got for his initial support of the CCS and now apparent continued support! Backers for a presidential run, monetary? He certainly could have done his own research!

cHILD aBUSE 4Huckabee’s “epiphany” mirrors that of others who have suddenly realized that it was not just a few unimportant people who are concerned about CCS; but instead, the parents and taxpayers of America, from all parties, no parties, no particular occupations or races – but our nation as a whole realizing the danger of having the Obama administration indoctrinate our children into the social justice agenda through Common Core Standards – using our children as “Human Capital” to become involved in public-private partnerships is not only despicable, but Progressive to Socialistic.

The selfish and inconsiderate support of this planned damage against our children cannot be explained or excused – now or in the future! We are talking about a former governor here that supported Bill Clinton’s “School-To-Work Act”. He also appears to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing!

Put your money away boys – you will not win this battle! Parents will!

Orlando CCSSO Common Core Secret Meeting Part 2

Pam StewartFor Florida (you can fit your state in here) it is very obvious the powers to be intend to go ‘forward’ with ‘no changes’ to the CCS as Commissioner Stewart has stated. I just wish she would be an ethical person and remove herself from the Jeb Bush Foundation or let him pay her salary since most of us feel that is where she gets her instructions from.

My mother taught me a long time ago you can never serve 2 masters at the same time, at least not effectively or ethically. Which master are you serving Commissioner, the children of Florida or Jeb Bush? Do you have children? Have you read the Common Core Standards?

Let me be clear – no changes are in the wind other than the changing of the Florida CCS name and Stewart claiming she is coming up with 40 changes to pacify the objectors. The problem is the objectors to the CCS know that by agreement no one can offer more than 15% changes and even then they will not be included in the testing portion – so what is the point other than phony appeasement?

Stewart is on the hot seat with the Florida Legislature because she told them she could get this under control and she has not. She is out of her league, the FL DOE are do nothing chair setters and the legislators have no intention of doing away with the Common Core Standards for Florida.

You see in Florida our current and past 2 Commissioner’s of Education were serving multiple masters or at least they were supposed to: the governor, legislature, District Superintendents, State and District School Boards and most of all JEB BUSH – least of all the parents and children. Tough role to pull off!

It appears Stewart has carried through with fulfilling Scott’s Executive Order regarding PARCC testing. It does however leave Florida operating within the consortium since nothing has been mentioned about leaving PARCC altogether. Florida has turned over its fiscal agent (money manager) responsibilities is all.

The next question should be “who is going to put together our tests to replace the PARCC test this spring? Pearson? Heaven help us! Maybe ALEC can do it! And why hasn’t there been a review panel with parents included in this process? Teachers?

I find it interesting that this country has focused so much on continual ‘teach to the test’ and constant testing when a good share of the countries we are supposed to be aligning to don’t test for years at a time.

This writer believes that so much of this is centered on money – using our children as Human Capital for their profiteering game.

They continue to talk about STEM so why not schools just for STEM students and leave the rest of the kids to pre 1965 Classical education? Which by the way got us to the moon and back along with being at the top of the heap in education at the time. What happened? The Federal Government got involved in education and everything was downhill from then on.

We don’t need more money for education – we need a curriculum that is right, teaches what our children need to know and is out from under the will and authority of the Federal government.

You see our country has become so focused on that college piece of paper, yet the graduates still don’t have anything in their heads because they have turned to mush. A large majority are going to college for the ‘fun’ not the education – they don’t have the basics.

I have found over the years “hands on training and respect” get you farther and make you smarter than thousands of $$ to the college loan rackets – money again! In fact if you want to make money today start a business around education.

And Rex Tillerson (ExxonMobil) – with his threats – most parents who love their children believe he should take his ExxonMobil threats and go back to Texas and swirl in their oil with the Bush’s who also seem to be making a good deal out of the business of Education. Never forget, it was Daddy Bush as president who really got his hands into education and laid out the groundwork for Bill Clinton along with Marc Tucker and their Communist education takeover.

Our state legislators need to begin thinking about our children, use their heads instead of their wallets and get our children out of bed with the Federal government for as we all know anything the Federal government touches turns to _ _ _ _! The legislators and school officials might even try reading the standards if they can read!

At the FL School Board meeting announcing the appointment of Pam Stewart things were not all rosy. Discord among board members as to the implementation of the CCS were very apparent. I for one don’t understand why if implemented, CCS are not being done on a gradual 1st grade in 2014, 1st grade in 2015 and so on – not plunk it down right in the middle of their education.

Outgoing board member Kathleen Shanahan blasted department leaders for not giving clear direction on the new Common Core State Standards and delaying a decision on what exams will replace the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests.

“The commissioner (Stewart) is fully in support and not wavering at all,” added Chairman Gary Chartrand. “I think we move forward.”

The debate led to a tense exchange between Shanahan and Chartrand, who defended Stewart. “Do you see the timeline issue?” Shanahan asked.
“We can’t go back in time,” Chartrand replied. “We had a commissioner change, unfortunately.”

The new timeline troubled Shanahan, who pointed out that the education department would have just six months between making the decision and the start of the 2014-15 school year, when the tests would be launched.

Board member John Padget: “Those of us on the board that have had the privilege of having large private organizations realize that with a change of this magnitude, there are always hiccups.” Our children’s futures are a HICCUP?

Chartrand himself is dancing to his own tune with his involvement in the Kipp Charter schools.

And of course the Madam of the Jeb Bush Foundations Patricia Levesque, who always has something to say for job justification stated, “the organization was speaking up now in part because of where the state stands in putting the standards in place”. Now? The Jeb Bush Foundations have been running all over the country for years pushing the CCS agenda.

“This year is when every student at every grade level is going to be exposed to Common Core,” she said. “Exposed” – do you mean like a virus?Rick Scott 5

Here is another question for you to ponder. Why do you think Jeb Bush is pushing the CCS and Charter/Choice/Vouchers all at the same time when all public school students are supposed to be taught under the CCS?

Florida’s Governor Scott, Commissioner, Legislators, State School Board and District Superintendents are dancing to the tune of Jeb Bush, along with those having a seat at the Bush Foundation, plus the likes of Chester Finn (Fordham), George Soros, Sen. Lamar Alexander (cradle to grave control), Craig Barrett (Intel), Rex Tillerson (ExxonMobil) Achieve , Edward Rust (State Farm), Condoleezza Rice, Carnegie Foundation, GE, and far too many to list. Oh, and let’s not forget David Coleman and Arne Duncan along with the president of the CFR Richard Haass who also sit on the Bush Foundation.

Time to clean up our state – to start supporting officials by actions not party, or being led around by a leash.

Floridians Against Common Core Education (F.A.C.C.E.) has ask the Gov. Scott on more than one occasion to take a further step in cleaning up the legislative apparatus in Tallahassee to include insisting that Pam Stewart, Mary Ellen Elia (Hillsborough Superintendent of Schools), and Fl. legislators John Thrasher, John Legg, Joe Negron, Erik Fresen, Anitere Flores, Don Gaetz, Kelli Stargel, and Will Weatherford remove themselves immediately from serving on the Jeb Bush Foundation for Excellence in Education. Never, ever a response from his office.

One last thing! For you to read and ponder The Republican Party of Florida ‘Oath of Party Loyalty and Ethical Conduct’ statement! I believe they are basically the same in all states. Do you believe our elected officials show you the same respect they do to the PARTY?
