Bill Gates – A God in His Own Mind Part 1

America’s Answer to Bill Gates Hitler Youth Movement

For most of us the most important thing in this world is our children. We do everything we can to protect them from danger, keep them well and are willing to work at destroying anything and everything out to cause them harm in any way.

Millions of American parents now realize there are many of our elected legislators both in their State and Federal government who claim they are passing legislation that is good for our children, but we parents know better.

I want to acknowledge I understand parents have been busy working, playing, parenting, dealing with aging parents, their own health issues – this very thing that have been a round robin forever. However, what you didn’t have time to pay attention to was the “deliberate dumbing down” of all of us since the beginning of the 20th Century.

For years now legislation has been passed leading up to the passage of the ESSA or “Every Student Succeeds Act” which if it wasn’t so dangerous to our children would be comical. Many of these individual’s names appear and re-appear time after time on bills to continue down the path to destroying our children and to be put under the CONTROL of the FEDERAL government.

If you have the time and are so inclined I invite you to read “TIMELINE OF THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA THROUGH THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN”.

Whether you want to believe it or not, everything that has been put in motion in this country since 1896 has been a path to a “New World Order”. We also have non-elected corporate individuals who believe their money can buy them anything they want and that is for the most part true. Our elected’s are only interested in what money is flowing into their wallets which is why they could care less what we think about anything.

When you mention Bill and Melinda Gates names in some circles reporting they are not the “good guys” they want you to think they are, people respond with “Well look at all the money they give away!” Have you really ever looked at all the things they have used their money for?

Gates financial input into the push for Common Core is public knowledge. One must ask why he is such a strong supporter of this inferior form of education for the masses of the children while his own children and grand-children (and those like him) are attending schools which DO NOT use Common Core.

The truth is, the children of the elite are to remain the “elite” overseeing the rest of us and the rest of us are to be the “workforce”.

What is the point of placing your children in Charter schools when they are still teaching Common Core?

Our youth have been so flooded with messages of immorality aligned to the Communist Manifesto that our country is now set up for anything goes. The schools and news media are bombarding our children with lies (they admit are lies) about “global warming” and festering their minds with how great it will be with a New World Order in place.

Our children are being indoctrinated in school with messages which separate them from their parents and the family structure with phrases like “out with the old and in with the new”. Even some far right religious sects are following the same theme preaching the bible out of context telling our children and adults “their” version of the Bible is the “new” enlightenment for the future of the WORLD. Keep in mind when being preached to that if it is “new” it is “wrong” and if it is “old” it is “right”.

Any takeover of any nation must and has begun with the entrapment of the children by propagandizing them into a nation of new goals with leaders who are selfish and evil. In America this has been done by the imbedded lie that we “must” send our children to school 5 days a week for 6-7 hours for 13 years of their life (now to include Pre-K) to be trained by strangers who in some cases have been trained to turn your children into non-thinking robots.




But be aware, there are NEW youth programs cropping up around the country with the direct purpose of undermining your parental authority. These Hitler type movement’s springing up are spreading the message that conformity is good and individual expression of liberty is undesirable. In other words “group” think is right – belief and support of the Constitution is wrong since it is outdated and outmoded (thank you Mark Levin).

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute commented on the brainwashing of our American youth:  “How do you persuade a nation of relatively freedom-loving individuals to march in lock step with a police state? Among other things you indoctrinate the young people to your way of thinking, relying primarily on the public schools and popular culture’ to get the job done.

Obama told us he was going to create a civilian military force which of course is to be aligned and beholden to him. What do you believe this is going to give us?

Look at this way! What do you suppose the mental development and thought process of an 18 year old is when you make them a part of the Dept. of Homeland Security’s “first responder’s” especially when you know Obama has been increasing FEMA’s ammunition and heavily-armed fighting vehicles and you are putting guns into the hands of these 18 year olds. Do you believe these 18 year olds will think before firing when they have been told they are working under a “population control” agenda?

Is this in fact a Youth Army? DHS will tell you NO but the leaking stories give us different facts! An illegal migrant refugee camp at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas has a security force referring to themselves as “Brown Shirts” being used as the security force over the workers not the refugee’s. Why over the worker’s? Because BCFS, a part of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, doesn’t want the American people to know about the diseases accompanying these refugees. Employees are under threat of firing if they leak information about the camp.

Bill and Melinda Gates have initiated an offshoot of Agenda 21 programs known as Global Citizen Nights.  Also supported by Forbes, Global citizen nights are designed to lure in youth and young adults and have them engage in some kind of global service with regard to the UN agenda’s such as water sanitation, Ebola, youth protection and health. In exchange for their good deeds, the participating teens earn points and then are able to exchange their “globalist points” for high valued items such as concert tickets. Personal servitude to society sends the message to the young that your life does not belong to you. Charity towards one’s own community should be borne out of a desire to help or heel in the name of some cause that has personal appeal to a young person. Mandatory compliance to these “volunteer program’s” conditions youth that their lives do not belong to them and that the state has the final authority of one’s actions.

Why do you believe Sen. Lamar Alexander, Joel Klein, Chester Finn, Marc Tucker, Hillary Clinton, Linda Darling-Hammond and others are such strong supporters of so much government control rather than parental control over the raising of our children?

When one joins this globalist propaganda program, they are told that “Bill Gates recognizes that individuals have diverse passions and offers the Global Citizen network as one where, ‘some people will pick women’s reproductive rights, some will pick agriculture and then there are NGOs in each of those areas that you can volunteer for, give money to, and feel connected.”  LINK

Once again I want to remind the reader’s, America has and is pouring BILLIONS of dollars into the United Nations every year for programs such as these very programs listed for the children to “volunteer” their services for “credits”. Is it the American people’s fault the UN continues sending money to the impoverished countries through the hands of their dictators and it never reaches those who need it?

Is it the fault of the American people that after 60+ years the countries the UN were supposed to help are still just as sick and poor? What have they done with all that money? Where are the audits? Where is the accountability from an agency which is being used to turn our world into their idea of a world – a New World Order?

Are you aware the only reason for the creation of the United Nations was to become the head governmental agency of a New World Order? Too bad our government and these corporations are not as interested in our homeless and hungry including our veterans.

“Global Citizen” is copyrighted 2012-2016 Global Poverty Project, Inc. When one joins this globalist propaganda program, they are told that “Bill Gates recognizes that individuals have diverse passions and offers the Global Citizen network as one where, ‘some people will pick women’s reproductive rights, some will pick agriculture and then there are other areas they might support. Add into the mix the NGOs in each of those areas that you can volunteer for, give money to, and feel connected.”

To give a “positive” note, the Global Citizen Nights are intended to replace the drug-infested raves. However, rather than destroying their bodies with drugs such as ecstasy, the youth are destroying their minds with globalist propaganda.  One of the central themes of the Global Citizen Nights is the deliberate denigration of national sovereignty (e.g. “sovereignty is so 20th century) and the adoption of the globalist agenda at an age when young people’s minds are prone to extremist thinking. Hence the huge following of our college students for Bernie Sanders!

Forbes is one of the biggest supporters of this movement. Never forget that it is the “elite” of the world that want us “average, low-life” to be the workers of the world, supporting them while we have nothing. Indoctrinating our children to believe the GLOBAL WAY is the right way is teaching our children they should have no appreciation or allegiance to include their values and morals, which created this great country. Their vision is for our children to be GLOBAL!

Even Michael Farris, the over Lord of the Home School Legal Defense Fund and supporter of the Convention of States wants to place an amendment to the Constitution regarding “parental rights” – offering parental rights come from “man or government” rather than God.

1934 – National Education Association (NEA) Former Executive Secretary Willard Givens warned that “…all of us, including the ‘owners’, must be subjected to a large degree of social control… An equitable distribution of income will be sought… the major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him understanding of the transition to a new social order.” LINK

1942 – The editor of the NEA Journal, J. Elmer Morgan, wrote an editorial titled “The United Peoples of the World.” In it, he explained a world government’s need for an educational branch, a world system of money and credit, a world police force, and a world bill of rights and duties.” LINK

1948 – Canadian psychiatrist and World War II General Brock Chisholm, M.D. head of the World Health Organization (WHO), promoted the behavior modification processes now mandated through Bill Clinton’s Goals 2000 leading to the current Common Core Standards, ESSA and Charter/Choice/Vouchers. Compare his vision with today’s Mastery Learning and planned control of the family. LINK

1951 – In a report entitled, The Greatest Subversive Plot In History, Rep. John T. Wood of Idaho, stated in the Congressional Record reference to UNESCO’s scheme to pervert public education appearing in a series of nine volumes, titled “Toward World Understanding” which presumes to instruct kindergarten and elementary grade teachers in the fine art of preparing our youngsters for the day when their first loyalty will be to a world government.”  LINK

The record continues, “The program is quite specific. The teacher is to begin by eliminating any and all words, phrases, descriptions, pictures, maps, classroom material or teaching methods of a sort causing his pupils to feel or express a particular love for, or loyalty to, the United States of America.

Children exhibiting such prejudice as a result of prior home influence, “of which “UNESCO calls “the outgrowth of the narrow family spirit” are to be dealt an abundant measure of counter propaganda at the earliest possible age. Booklet V, on page 9, advises the teacher that:  The kindergarten or infant school has a significant part to play in the child’s education. Not only can it correct many of the errors of home training, but it can also prepare the child for membership in the world society.” 

PARENTS – This is exactly what Current Common Core is intended to do and now with the endorsement of the ESSA, there is no path to saving our children other than taking them out of Public Schools and Homeschooling!

1974 – Alvin Toffler (Newt Gingrich’s mentor) along with Willard Wirtz and other futurists wrote a report issued to the Institute for Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) (those wonderful Commissioners of Education who forced Common Core on our children 30+ years later) titled “Man, Education, and Society in the Year 2000”. Other CSSO participants were George H. W. Bush, James Baker and Edmund de Rothschild.

November 17, 2004 – And YOU want to believe Bill Gates is this great guy because he gives all this money away.  Believe me – his money is spent for the intention to indoctrinate our children or support eugenics. At UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, UNESCO signed a 26-page ‘Cooperation Agreement’ with Microsoft Corporation to develop a ‘master curriculum (Syllabus)’ for teacher training in information technologies based on [global] standards, guidelines, benchmarks, and assessment techniques. The Agreement states that the Syllabus will ‘form the basis for deriving training content to be delivered to teachers,’ and ‘UNESCO will explore how to facilitate content development.”

In other words, that “Cooperation Agreement” calls for a world-wide system of global standards. Its manipulative techniques were designed to conform human resources to the demands of the rising totalitarian world government. No matter what we call its manipulative education standards — “Common Core,” “Outcome Based Education” or “No Child Left Behind” — the schools of the future would be pressed into the socialist shape of UNESCO and the NEA. Remember, the NEA shares UNESCO’s goals. No wonder, since NEA elites helped launch UNESCO! Back in 1946, it celebrated the formation of UNESCO as “the culmination of a movement for the creation of an international agency of education.” What the NEA planned in secret has become today’s reality. The NEA Journal proudly announced their new rules:  “…each member nation… has a duty to see to it that nothing in its curriculum . . . is contrary to UNESCO‘s aims.”

Like the NEA, UNESCO promotes abortion, disarmament and world government. It has much in common with Agenda 21, (and Bill Gates) the radical framework for a totalitarian globalism under the banner of “Saving the Earth” and shrinking the world population. [See Gorbachev’s Plan for a United WorldOur children would be trained, not just to conform to UNESCO’s agenda, but to serve as activists ready to serve, promote, spy and fight for a world government with zero tolerance for traditional values.

Just so you know – San Francisco, September 27, 1995 at the first global “State of the World Forum” sponsored by the UN, Zbigniew Brzezinski, former head of the Trilateral Commission and Obama’s mentor stated:  “We cannot leap into world government in one quick step . . . . The precondition for . . . genuine globalization is progressive regionalization, because thereby we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units.” Make no mistake, Obama has been taking his instructions first and foremost from Brzezinski and he became his foreign policy adviser in 2008).

And WE the PEOPLE have allowed this to happen – remember almost every city and county in this country has “regionalism” committees. Wake Up!

Your Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and Federalist Papers do not call for this country to be ruled over by the likes of the United Nations or anyone else. It is “We the People”!

I could go on forever, but to what point? Parents are finding too many excuses for not removing their children from Federally Funded Schools.  Parents – your children’s Favorite Learning Place should be “Schoolhouse Home”!


The Joke Is On Us!

Most people really do not like having joke’s played on them. For the most part, joke’s in their implementation are usually humiliating to the receiver and it takes time to understand what the real motive is really all about! For the past 10 years the joke has been played on our student’s, teachers, parents and most of all our pocketbooks! Every time the news reports read “schools are failing – they need more money” you have to analyze just what that means because there is still no change. Foundations (Bill Gates and Jeb Bush) continue to spend bad money after bad with no results. The new idea is to push for Charter schools because the government system is failing – of course it is because it is government run, but with no oversight of the Charter schools as to curriculum’s used, where their outside funding is coming from and lack of reporting their successes or failures, they are no better than the government schools and all the money in the world is not going to change it.

The past couple of years we found out about the Race To The Top (RTTT) and Common Core Standards (CCS) being dumped on our school systems across the country when in fact the making of this mess had been in the works for sometime. You need to understand that in order for the school districts to be ready for this mess, they had to have been getting their own systems ready for a few years for it to be implemented at the same time the announcement was made. Our state Education Departments had been playing a dangerous game with the Federal government and at stake is our children – for what? MONEY! To what end? The DOE telling them they have the “answer” to all the education woes being experienced by the local school districts – drop outs, not enough money, poor teachers, unresponsive parents, poverty and any other excuse they could think of.

Then at the very same time here come the hero’s of education – Bill Gates and Jeb Bush with all their Foundation money to push for legislation to make sure we have more and more Charter schools out there for “school choice.” Well, let’s face it – parents should have the right for their children to have a good education after all your tax dollars are paying for it. This control by money is actually no different than what the DOE has been doing for years except the money the Federal DOE uses is your tax $$ and what our two boys use is theirs made from you.

Why are these supposed “smart giants” not looking at the real problems and addressing those? Would it mean if they did that they would actually not have control over your children? Parents there is a reason that Home Schooled children are smarter, more energetic and most of all – happy! You don’t like the government or big business in your life, why would you think your children would enjoy the benefits of the government or the likes of the “2 boys” in theirs?

1. Teacher’s should be evaluated by a panel of peer’s on a regular basis and a proper and fair way in place to evaluate why any teacher should be fired. I do not personally believe it is fair to fire a teacher who is continually being given “junk” to teach our children with (poor curriculum’s i.e., RTTT, CCS) and that junk being changed on a regular basis. Forcing teacher’s to teach “for a test” is just plain wrong (NCLB) and it leaves a pathway to ignoring other important subjects.

Additionally, it is important to investigate why, in the most recent period, typical teachers have been more effective with elementary school children than with high-school students, but curiously, the reforms Bill Gates and like-thinking policymakers are pursuing concern elementary school teachers almost exclusively. Could it be because the student value-added scores on NCLB – required standardized tests by which they propose to evaluate these teachers are available only for elementary, not secondary school students. It is also important to investigate why teachers have apparently been more effective during the last few decades in teaching math than reading. I contend a large reason for this is that almost everything has gone “virtual” along with allowing calculators in the classrooms and most everything students do these days is around “virtual” rather than reading. It is difficult to motivate anyone to investigate this since our information has been clouded by the myth that all student achievement has been flat.

2. Pouring bad money after bad and seeing no results just seems insane to me, but this is what we have continued to do for years. We do not do this in business, why would we do it with our children’s education? Bill Gates says “the cost of running our K-12 schools has more than doubled.” It certainly has but not because the money is needed to improve our graduating numbers – as the saying goes “the buck stops here” when the money is feed into the individual school districts and over 75% is used for administration – not educating our children or paying our teachers. How is putting your children in Charter School going to change that? Since 2007, the Gates Foundation has sent approx. $3M dollars to a Florida county to “pump up the numbers” with no noticeable changes in their numbers for anything. In line with this, the very fast rising cost of going to college – have any of you parents bothered to check and see how much the Administration in these schools are taking for themselves? Somebody has to pay their huge salaries and benefits and their name is YOU! Is there a justification as to why a College President should be making $5 – 9 Hundred K a year? Sometimes more!

3. Playing games with the curriculum’s used on a regular basis is not helpful to the teachers or the students. Many schools across the country are using International socialistic based teachings from the United Nations with the full support of the Teacher’s Unions and the US Department of State. What do you suppose that is about? Not only that! These socialistic programs are very expensive and I would bet you as a taxpayer were never consulted on spending that extra money!

4. Removing American History from school books prior to 1865 – depriving a child from knowing or having a personal link to the past prevents him or her from being able to analyze what worked and what didn’t and to learn from past mistakes made. Depriving a child from knowing the correct/real American History is the process of removing him from having any allegiance to the country.

5. Our state departments of education and school districts across the country have taken it upon themselves to participate in the massive “green – global warming” conspiracy changing the children’s allegiance from America and their Families to one of the Earth or Gaia following the laid out plans put forth in the United Nations Earth Charter – least we not forget to mention the United Nations schools popping up all over the country along with the Gulen Turkish Charter Schools overseen by the Turkish Terrorist Gulen who is hiding out in the PA mountains because he was thrown out of Turkey! Read it – http://www.truthabouteducation.org/un.html Also another place your tax dollars are going!

6. Unions have certainly outgrown their usefulness having reverted back to the original days of bullying and threats. Unions spending dues money on lavish entertainment, trips, paying occupiers and at the same time putting out a bad example and getting teachers to teach to your children how great the unions are. Unions should have no place within the walls of our schools. If you want to be a Union teacher so be it, but you leave the Union propaganda outside the classroom doors.

7. Speaking of Unions – teachers are you aware the very Unions you are giving all those dues to is taking your money and using it to support School Board members when they run for office – the very same School Board members who rob you of proper salaries?

8. Bill Gates says, “Our level of spending has increased over the years, but our percentage of college graduates has dropped.” What do you expect – garbage in, garbage out! When in Florida for example over 50% of those graduating from high school and go on to college have to take remedial classes in reading and math – that information is very clear to me and it should be to you. GARBAGE IN – GARBAGE OUT!

9. Legislators having financial interest in Charter schools and also voting on Charter school legislation is wrong but it certainly helps to explain why our state legislators are so eager to push for more Charter schools leaving the part about what curriculum’s and textbooks are to be used and proper oversight out of the picture. The final goal here being the elimination of the elected school boards so that all control is taken out of the hands of the parents/taxpayers and retained by the Federal government. This is the Communistic way!

10, Textbooks being used that are now being published by Muslim purchased publishers printing lies about our Judeo/Christian country and at the same time making any history relating to “liberal” politics and events more impressive than those from the “right”. Textbook committees choosing textbooks for the schools when they in fact cannot discern truth from fact! Sad! Let us not forget the push in our textbooks for Pro Islam! Recently printed Pearson Social Studies “myWorld History: Early Ages book had approximately 13 pages which spoke of Judeo/Christian beliefs/history and 40+ to the Islamic Faith/History.

My final say in this “joke”! Have you ever stopped to think why Home School children are much more advanced than their peers in public schools along with being well adjusted and it only takes a few hours a day for them rather than a full day in a government school? Home School programs for the most part are based on Judeo/Christian values, good old fashion American History, they challenge the kids and give them goals to reach all the while praising them for their achievements and – the children praise each other in their accomplishments.

A co-op Home School program is the most ideal where the parents, even those working, can give something of themselves to the children i.e., maybe there is a parent who loves to bake, a father who does auto mechanics or carpentry, a mom who plays the piano, a retired teacher or two, more personal relationships and everything about life is shared. This country was founded on “home schooling” and the government thugs Bill Gates and Jeb Bush have no business being involved in the education of our children. The mere idea they want to infiltrate the control over our Pre-K kids should put warning signals out everywhere.

The Founders of our country believed the key to a free Republic was education for all children. They also stated “Religion, morality, and knowledge as being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind” – they never said the government should be in charge of it. National Standards as a “one size fits all” is just wrong and need I remind you that everything the Federal Government touches – fails? Read the Earth Charter and Marc Tucker’s letter to Hillary Clinton explaining the well laid out plan to “Dumb Down America” by taking over our Education system.



Florida’s Chinese Funded Charter Schools

More and more I find the need to state – “When the motive behind an action is CONTROL, MONEY & POWER” with no concern of those you are hurting or destroying, it makes no difference if the person or persons carrying out the action is a liberal, progressive, activist, democrat, conservative, republican, Christian, Jew, Islam, Communist – WHAT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS IF THEY ARE AMERICANS AND WE ARE PAYING THEM AND TRUSTING THEM TO PROTECT US!

These so called “protectors of Americans” are evil Luciferian’s who in front of the camera act as if they are enemies and then they go out to dinner together!

I can tell you I am so angry at the Florida legislature and all the politicians from around the country who for the past 50 years have decided this country needs to be brought to it’s knees i.e., COMMUNISM and that the way to do that is through the indoctrination of our children through their Education. The scandals, cronyism and outright deceit that has grown out of this Agenda – well folks – you just cannot make some of this stuff up no matter how hard you would try!

So now the reason for my rant! On Sept 28, 2012 Obummer signed the new version of EB-5 (green cards) which is S.3245 which is making EB-5 permanent instead of being renewed every 3 years. In a nutshell, EB-5 is the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) law which issues permanent residency to an immigrant (plus spouse and unmarried children under 21) if he contributes a minimum required amount of capital (and it is a lot) into an America business (“new commercial enterprise”) that will benefit the U.S. economy and create at least 10 full-time, direct jobs for American workers.

And – what upstanding Senator was a co-sponsor of Senate bill S.3245? MARCO RUBIO – Florida’s pro amnesty legislator!

So now for the best part –

Investment money is pouring into Florida from wealthy Chinese who find that Florida has exactly what they are looking for – and what they need to secure US green cards. Chinese investors are taking advantage of the EB-5 investment visa program, the so-called “green card via red carpet,” by putting millions into Florida’s Charter School system and an aquaculture farm in Central Florida. They have already invested $30M into the Charter School system and are looking to invest three times that amount in the next year, Ilona Vega Jaramillo, director of international Business Development for Enterprise Florida, the state’s economic development arm, said in a US-China roundtable discussion last week. She would not name any of the investors, citing confidentiality. Evidently she has not heard of Florida’s version of the Freedom of Information Act of which I am doing next.

Anyone want to think the Florida legislators had nothing to do with this? I know – the Chinese just knew the best thing for them to invest in were Charter Schools. Let’s see – the legislature wants us to pass Amendment 8 so we can use taxpayer $$ to finance private and religious schools hoping to push them into the Charter school business along with the Turkish Gulen schools and now Chinese financed Charter schools! “O Happy Day!” AND THERE ARE PARENTS OUT THERE THAT BELIEVE THIS IS GREAT! nO WONDER THE EVIL SIDE IS WINNING!

I may be wrong, but to me this whole involvement with the Chinese “investing” in our Charter Schools which we contend is a “for profit” “public-private partnership” – is proof of what I have just stated. It is time to get business out of our Education system and for anyone who does not realize this whole thing is part of the Communism plan for the takeover of America needs to wake up.

NEW AMERICAN SCHOOLS DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (NASDC) WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1991 and then President George Bush, requested that the business community raise funds to support development of “radical, break-the-mold” schools (one in each Congressional district) which would in the future be known as “charter schools” (public school “choice” schools). IN 1993 (Clinton) managed to push the SCHOOL TO WORK OPPORTUNITIES ACT through and it PASSED THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES without a roll call vote and passed the Senate in 1994. This legislation called for Soviet/German full employment/quota-type system, incorporating the Danish model for polytech education.

So now we are back to my original contention – party makes no difference – both sides pushing & voting in place evil education to take over our children’s lives! You may not see or feel it but it is there, lurking in the background like the devil and his works! DO YOUR RESEARCH FOLKS!

Notice that the exam took FIVE HOURS to complete.

Gives the saying ‘he only had an 8th grade education’ a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?!

No wonder they dropped out after 8th grade. They already knew more than they needed to know!

No, I don’t have all the answers! And I don’t think I ever did!

Have fun with this…pass it on so we’re not the only ones who feel stupid!!!

1895 8th Grade Class



Gerber, Abbott Nutrition Labs, Mead Johnson, Walmart, Kellogg’s and the Federal Government are force-feeding genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to the most vulnerable among us: our children. This does not even address what is fed to our cows which ends up in the milk.

Nearly all of our infant formula, including every one of the millions of bottles distributed free by the government, contains genetically engineered corn or soy, as well as milk from cows injected by bovine growth hormone.

The FDA doesn’t conduct or even require a single safety study on GMOs. They allow Monsanto and other biotech companies to do their own safety tests. Keep in mind that the FDA also assured us that past products DDT, PCBs and Agent Orange were perfectly safe. This was before they were banned. Today, companies can put GMOs into baby bottles, sippy cups, and breakfast cereal, without even telling the FDA or consumers.

Because of their less-developed immune systems, infants and young children are more sensitive to toxins found in GMOs. And diseases linked to GMOs in animal-feeding studies are skyrocketing among America’s children. This can’t be a coincidence.

Children are More Vulnerable

-Infants and young children are more sensitive to toxins found in GMOs.

-Their immune system and blood brain barrier are not fully developed.

Again, diseases are skyrocketing among America’s children. Their disorders include the same ones identified in GMO animal feeding studies by the physicians group, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.

Enough is enough. Tell the food companies ( Gerber, Abbott Nutrition, Mead Johnson and Walmart) and the government agencies ( California WIC) that they must stop companies from feeding our babies genetically modified infant formula and baby food and to stop using our kids as guinea pigs.


So What About the Vaccinations They Are Giving Our Children?

For decades, half of all childhood vaccines contained a chemical preservative called Thimerosal.

It is made from mercury, one of the most poisonous substances on Earth.!  Approximately 12 out of the 18 vaccine doses the average American child receives before the age of two contain Thimerosal. Cumulatively, that’s more than 200 micrograms of mercury, which would fit on the head of a pin.

According to the EPA, dropping that pin-head of mercury into 23 gallons of water would make it unsafe for human consumption. “Think about the idea of injecting your own child with levels of mercury that are thirty to forty times what’s considered safe for an adult,” Dallas attorney Andy Waters said. “And, I think if any human being thinks about that very long, they recognize that this is something that never should have happened.”

Before the 1990s, 1 in 10,000 children were diagnosed with autism. But in the past decade, as the government has increased the number of mandatory vaccines, some recent studies suggest the rate of autism has risen to 1 in about 250 children.
