Summoning the Demons! Our Children Are To Be Robots!

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:10 KJV

Education Monster 3The ever present Education Monster!

Common Core isn’t enough! Data Mining is certainly not going far enough I guess! Privacy never even considered! Allowing them to use either gender bathrooms the highlight of the past year and now the real damage overseen by Change Agent teachers.

Parents, have you never heard of DARPA? We warned you this was going to be part of the Common Core implementation. Do you remember our telling you of the computer mouse which will track your child’s emotional responses to items thrown at them while supposedly learning at school?

DARPA – the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency if allowed permission, will be tracking your child’s emotional, behavioral and social STANDARDS! STANDARDS? Our children now have emotional, behavioral and social standards as well as academic? By whose standards?

Who the heck has given the Federal Department of Defense permission to be in your child’s classroom?

The University of Memphis is seeking a licensee to commercialize a significant advance in the Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs). The invention consists of software and proprietary algorithms which allow ITSs to sense and optimally respond to the learner’s (your child) emotional state and not simply their cognitive state.

The inventors are supposedly internationally recognized, award-winning leaders in Artificial Intelligence-based tutor system research. This technology is built on decades of research supported by millions of dollars of your money through federal grants. Award winning? In the mental and emotional manipulation of our children?

While current e-learning systems focus on knowledge and cognition, it is widely acknowledged that the next generation affect-sensitive ITSs will be the wave of the future. For example, the theme of the 14th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education was on “Affective Modeling” –  detecting and responding to student affect.”

For me, it is like stripping a child’s mind and behavioral responses to a state of nakedness. There will be nothing about our children that will be private or sacred to the world but manipulated. No protection of information guaranteed.

  • The computer-based training and e-learning markets are large and constantly growing. Training systems that achieve impressive learning gains, such as the present invention, have a wide range of applications for virtually any computerized training scenario.
  • Gives Intelligent Tutoring Systems the unique capability of responding to student’s emotional states in addition to their cognitive states and knowledge levels.
  • Can be an add-on to existing ITS platforms.
  • Provides a tool that is particularly effective with students who are initially unfamiliar with the subject taught by the ITS.
  • Yields significant learning gains by detecting, responding to, and synthesizing emotion.

The people behind this I guess see it as an experiment on the fun side since they list two NOVEL ASPECTS making the system unique:

  • The algorithm to be used will detect student emotions and combines conversational cues, posture, and facial features. This form of multimodal affect detection is achieved via a three-channel decision level fusion algorithm. (Got that?)
  • The strategies the system uses will respond to students’ emotional and cognitive states. This is accomplished with a theoretically-grounded production system that helps students regulate their negative emotional state in a manner that is dynamically responsive to each individual learner.

To what end? What is the point and purpose of this? To take their current emotional state and regulate it to what THEY believe it should be? What is wrong with a child having a negative emotional state which would be more likely responding to an event?

Is this the beginning of emotionally training your child to think as someone wants them to, not how it comes naturally to them or from their parent’s training?

THEY say, “Simply put, the invention yields impressive learning gains by detecting, responding to, and synthesizing emotion”.

Arthur C. Grasser, one of the inventors, is a professor of psychology and intelligent systems at the University of Memphis and has served as the editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology and Discourse Processes.

Danger:  Keeping in mind that our rights come from the Declaration of Independence, written BEFORE the Constitution, stating that our rights are unalienable and are endowed by our CREATOR – not our legislators, not our government and certainly not from the United Nations and their attempt at gaining control of our children through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (“CRC”).

“The ever-increasing use of children’s rights discourse by national, regional and international political institutions can perhaps be seen as a sign of the success of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (“CRC”), and of the internalization of the concept that children are independent rights holders, the ideological basis of the doctrine of children’s rights. Nevertheless, there is evidence that some advocates of children’s rights in the political arena are taking an over-simplistic, uni-dimensional approach to children’s rights which results in the misrepresentation of the true interests of children. This risk is well illustrated by the recent resolution of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (“PACE”) resolution entitled “Children’s Right to Physical Integrity,” which inter alia expressed concern about the violation of the right to the physical integrity of young boys circumcised for religious reasons and made recommendations that States should consider placing restrictions on this practice”.

Skinner’s behavioral training boxes

Imagine this scenario – the Intelligent Tutoring Systems monitoring your child’s responses all day long during different subjects, then the information being gathered with those of other children to modify and behaviorally train your children on how to think about numerous social and emotional events, even to the point of “dulling” their reactions or “increasing” them.  B. F. Skinner is dancing in his grave along with all the other freaks who have worked at using our children to achieve their personal goals.

Grasser’s co-buddy in this “emotional game” is Dr. Sidney D’Mello, a research assistant professor at the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis. He co-directs the Emotive Computing Lab. His primary research interests are in the cognitive and affective sciences, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and the learning sciences. More specific interests include affective computing, artificial intelligence in education, speech recognition and natural language understanding, and computational models of human cognition.

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking said artificial intelligence “could spell the end of the human race.”

Speaking at the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics department’s Centennial Symposium in October, Tesla boss Elon Musk referred to artificial intelligence as “summoning the demon.”

” I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So, we need to be very careful with the artificial intelligence. Increasingly scientists think there should be some regulatory oversight maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish. With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon. Didn’t work out.”

British inventor Clive Sinclair has said he thinks artificial intelligence will doom mankind. “Once you start to make machines that are rivaling and surpassing humans with intelligence, it’s going to be very difficult for us to survive,” he told the BBC. “It’s just an inevitability.”

Even Bill Gates has sounded an alarm on “artificial intelligence” which is exactly what the ITSs system is intended to be used for. “I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence,” Gates wrote. “First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don’t understand why some people are not concerned.”

PARENTS IT IS TIME TO SOUND THE ALARM against this. Contact your Education and legislative officials and let them know you are against this system being allowed into our Educational Systems and our children’s daily lives.

If we don’t protect our children, who will?

 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) is taking a giant leap in EDUCATION as schools seek to raise THEIR standards, looking for help for the schools – not our children and it is coming in the form of virtual assistants packed with the power of artificial Intelligence.

Working to convince you AI will help the teachers and your children is the major goal today claiming it is a necessity because of the population growth and larger classrooms. Pearson, you remember them, are also deeply involved in this manipulation of our children.

AI

Did you notice in the picture above that the AI is also supposed to detect your child’s NEEDS! Keeping our children buried in computers not only is not good for their physical and mental growth, but it is taking them away from personal interaction. The individuals creating and supporting this monstrosity believe they not only have the right to do this, they believe YOU don’t have the right to know what is happening in your child’s daily life nor to stop it.

Waking up at 5 A.M. with this type of information puts my mind in a tailspin – Wake Up Parents!

“Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers, the dangerous control our legislators believe they have a right to and the corporations who want to fill their coffers. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity.”

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 KJV

THE UNMASKING OF MAINE….AND BEYOND

Written by Ann Herzer, Independent researcher exposing the Russian Skinnerian/Pavlovian Dog Training Method

Pre-Message from Charlotte Iserbyt:  “This article MUST be published by all political, religious,  and education journals. Please forward to all your lists and especially to elected officials and to President Trump.

Ann Herzer,  a retired public school teacher, and educational researcher was one of first, if not the first, to expose the Russian Skinnerian/Pavlovian dog training method, absolutely necessary for global workforce training and brainwashing.

This dog training  method is also known as Mastery Learning (ML);  Outcomes Based Education (OBE); Direct Instruction (DI); Performance Based Education (PBE); Competency-Based Education (CBE) and Effective Schools.”

Courtesy of Ann Herzer:

Skinner box 2“In some charter schools across the country, the extended day has been implemented. When the USSR put in the total poly tech system in 1958 they also extended the school hours. The professional teachers complained, and an extensive amount of research was done in their schools. What they discovered was that beyond a certain time period, depending on age, no learning takes place. What they did, and probably still continue to, is they researched age groups to see just how much time on task a child could tolerate and still learn. They then adjusted the curriculum accordingly. ( I researched the USSR up to almost 2000 when I determined we were trying to put in the same system of workforce training, so I just read laws in the USA etc. They also held school for a half day on Saturday for usually propaganda education. The after school Communist training schools are legendary.

In case some might be curious, during WWII so many men were killed in Russia and Germany they had to implement the poly tech system that included young children for the war effort. In the USA, the women took the place of men in the factories I. e. Rosie the…. slogan referring to our wonderful women who went into the factories and did the jobs of men. The grandparents usually watched the children and we survived, so did freedom, so far!

Russia thought the system had become undemocratic because too many of the upper class were the only ones selected for higher education, so equal education extended it to all. Now, the students were placed in a career pathway at the end of fourth grade, and there they remained until the state decided what job in their field of study was needed. Needless to say, there was no upward mobility in such a system, the American Dream or Soviet Dream did not exist. The government did not educate for a job that did not have the possibility of existing down the projected time line. Education was under the tight control of government, propaganda and all! A public/private partnership did exist, but business was also tightly controlled by the central Communist party. Their five-year plan is very similar to our PPBS plan promoted by the government and some companies. Some businesses have withdrawn from this system and select to survive or fail on their own. The government control, I understand makes it very difficult for businesses to survive with all the regulations, and that is why many are moving abroad. I only wish President Trump would see the exact correlation in education.

 

Elementary education in many countries ends about 7th or 8th grade, and a minority are selected for further skills training and a few for professional jobs like teachers, doctors etc go to a university for extended learning. The teachers in the USSR were highly trained in their content areas, even in elementary schools. Of course, the Darwin and Pavlovian method and philosophy was taught to the children at a very early age along with job skills. But, the system failed as all totalitarian, government, controlled systems have failed throughout recorded history. Why?

I think the quest for freedom can not be programmed out of many individuals, and the individualism in each and every child will eventually surface regardless of the propaganda and programmed education. (See Common Core or whatever name it goes by now e. g. Career…for an example).

The USSR tried to place children according to their aptitude and self- interest, but economic situations prevailed first. We are trying to do the same thing, and this is one reason we have so much testing in our schools now. Children are too immature at an early age, and no aptitude test can NOT possibly measure where a child should be placed in job training, and these test also includes academic and IQ tests. Most young children want to be firemen, policemen or go to otter- space etc. What is happening now in education destroys the “American Dream” and must be stopped NOW!

I sometimes, in spite of my horror, find it humorous when propaganda names Germany or Finland as our model; they never mention the Soviet Union. Apparently, citizens will accept other countries as an example, but not the Soviet Union. To compare other countries to the USA is like comparing apples and oranges. The USSR adjusted their educational system when it was determined by, mostly teachers, that it was harmful to children. The USA is trying to get rid of our good content teachers and replace them with computers or five-week government trained so called teachers. This is a money making scheme that has no concern for children or our economic stability in the future. As our children are educated, so goes our nation! Right now, our educational system does not project a positive picture especially with Betsy DeVos at the helm.

This is why I have said the old USSR system is more humane than our “so called restructuring of education”. The vested interest continue to harm children to either get the money or are simply fools! Probably both!

I read in the Arizona Republic or USA Today that research shows that women should work shorter hours than men because of the amount of housework a woman does. Apparently, some countries are doing this. It was less than 40 hrs for women and approximately 47 was the limit for men. Seems to me, this is only logical common sense, but Heaven forbid that anyone should not do research to prove a common sense point!

There is a point for everyone including children when overwork and long hours will show up in medical records. The USSR educational system proved this. I wish someone would read the research as I did. Take care and don’t overwork!”

WHAT ARE TODAY’S CHILDREN DOING and WHAT HAVE THEY GOTTEN THEMSELVES IN TO???

Are they committing suicide, selling drugs online or being lured

into trafficking by some online smooth talker?

Parenting TruthAnd these questions are not just for the kids the world has targeted as a “problem”, but those considered as your everyday good kid who gets good grades and as far as you know never gets into trouble.

You may not like what I am going to say, but I really don’t care. If you don’t care anymore about your children than to know what is happening to them from the outside world, you shouldn’t have any. You are not worth the blessing of being honored to be a parent.

I’m not saying these things to be mean, judgmental or ugly, and I’m not saying we all don’t make mistakes along the way, but the world is very ugly today and if you can’t take the time to supervise what your children are doing, watching on TV or involved in on their computers because you see your interests and wants more important than your children’s, then you should have given more thought to having sex BEFORE you got pregnant

Do you allow your child to hide in their bedrooms with their computers so when some pedophile picks them up on Facebook or some other internet social group, you ask “how did this happen”? There is not a child 18 and under that has the decision-making ability to use common sense – not today!

Mentally and emotionally at 18, they are still a child. They haven’t had to have any responsibility for themselves, so when you leave them open to the world, this is what they get –

  • You find your son or daughter in their bedroom, dead because they have been involved in the BLUE WHALE CHALLENGE. It is the new online ugly – downright ghoulish game where your son or daughter would participate in a series (50) tasks and the final one is for them to take their own life.

A boy in San Antonio was found by his father hanging in his bedroom closet having hung himself. The really ghoulish part of this game and the mind of the creator is the player is to position something to take pictures of them while they are dying. The parents pieced together he had been playing this game after talking to his friends and going through his social media on his computer.

The very same week a 16-year-old girl from Georgia died participating in this “game”.

I feel for these family, but “after the fact” can be fatal!

There have been over 130 teens around the world who have taken their lives participating in this “game” which must have come from one of the Devil’s workers. More than one is one too many!

Teachers and school officials have gotten wind of this and school districts across the country have sent warning notices home to parents including Vacaville, California; Baldwin County, Alabama; Warwick, Rhode Island; and Denver.

In Connecticut, Danbury Public Schools Superintendent Sal Pascarella sent a short note to parents around May after administrators from the district’s 19 schools started hearing about the challenge from kids as young as elementary schoolers.

“Elementary school principals started hearing their kids talk about the Blue Whale Challenge. Then the secondary principals started mentioning the same thing,” he said. “We discovered on our school network content the challenge had been looked at on YouTube. … I decided I would rather err on the side of information with parents.” The first challenge calls the Cinnamon Challenge, the participant is to swallow whole spoonful’s of cinnamon to see how much of the throat burning they can stand.

Teasspoon cinnamonThe first challenge is called the Cinnamon Challenge, the participant is to swallow a whole spoonful of cinnamon to see how much of the throat burning they can stand.

The participants are allegedly required to take pictures of their challenges being completed and share them before being directed to end their lives on the 50th day. A search of related hashtags on Instagram shows users posting pictures of scars and cuts or memes that depict suicide.

The piece of trash who invented this game states, “he created the game to “cleanse society” and that they were and that they were nothing but “biological waste” and that they were happy to die. 

Phillip BudeikinPhilipp Budeikin, 21, from Russia, is being held on charges of inciting at least 16 schoolgirls to kill themselves by taking part in a game he invented called ‘Blue Whale’.

Another sick chapter in this gross story is Russian prison authorities say they have received dozens of love letters from teenage girls addressed to the suspect, who is being held at Kresty jail in St Petersburg.

  • TEEN VOGUE magazine telling boys, “For those of you with prostrates, being on the receiving end of anal sex can be a great experience.” The article then goes on to explain why boys will enjoy anal sex.

 Nothing said about the dangers of the infections they might get. Teen Vogue’s Anal Sex: What You Need to Know,” an article that has as its       tagline, “How to do it the RIGHT way.” That sentence drags teenagers into the world of fetish sex and is a jolting reminder that the current purveyors of pop culture have the degradation and sexual objectification of our children as part of their endgame.

This magazine has been putting out articles to your teens titled “No,    You Can’t Get Too Attached to Your Vibrator: Masturbation Myths    Debunked,” “Colton Hayes: I Lost My Virginity at 13 to a Girl and A   Guy,” and “This Teen Created a Map of EVERY Abortion Clinic in the U.S.”

It’s bad enough we have pedophilia dancing around every corner from strangers to your teacher or local priest – maybe even your local policeman, all people we teach our children to trust, but this is inexcusable.

Not to leave the girls out, Teen Vogue’s message to our very young and teen girls goes like this:  Just because you have a vagina does not mean anal is off-limits. Many vagina owners love anal play. You don’t need to have a prostate to enjoy anal sex. For those without a prostate, having your anus stimulated can still be great — remember all those nerve endings are still in the fold here.

The fact the article includes” the warning to use protection during anal sex”, should be of little comfort to parents.

  • Children are using social media through their computers to buy and sell Class A drugs. An undercover operation exposed how popular social networks, including Snapchat and Instagram, have become a ‘paradise’ for those dealing in illegal substances.

Teenagers are employing a code made up of ‘emojis’ – the small digital images normally used to convey emotions – to conceal the deals. One of the country’s largest drug gangs told a BBC documentary 75 per cent of their takings now comes through social media transactions, using ‘digital-savvy’ school pupils.

  • According to law enforcement, there are more than 1.5 million victims of human trafficking in the United States alone — child sex traffickers are using previously harmless emoji symbols to lure their young victims and a method the sinister criminals use to sell children has been revealed.

Investigators found that the symbols are found all over websites like Backpage.com, where pimps are known to sell teen and pre-teen girls and boys for sex. Cherry means virgin, airplane means new in town and the number of rose emojis in a post symbolizes the price. The crown emoji indicates that the child emoji and the most disturbing thing is the growing heart emoji lets the buyer know that the girl or boy is childlike and still has growing to do.

The Polaris Project and Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) are the two most effective and independent organizations working at saving child sex slaves. Link Even if these children are rescued in South America, Asia or anywhere else in the world, many have been taken from the U.S. and Europe.

  • Emoji’s of every design imaginable are being sold on the internet for downloading onto a computer. Even Amazon is selling packs of emojis. Link  Link  Link  The danger here is if a child doesn’t understand EXACTLY what a particular emoji stands for he or she could end up in a great deal of danger.

Emoji’s aren’t sexy unless your mind goes to banana’s, winky faces and eggplants, so now we have 4 (of course California designers) who have come up with a solution called “Flirtmoji“, sexy stickers designed to be pasted on messages as needed. Intended for adults, but if a parent isn’t aware of what their children are doing on a computer – their computer is their ocean.

  • Parents in case you aren’t aware, buying a child on the internet for sex is as easy as trying to sell your old car or washing machine. 70% of child sex trafficking victims are sold online and that even includes Craigslist.

In 2014, at least 105,000 children in the United States were being sexually exploited, according to the Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the expanding underground industry has no intention of slowing down. The FBI considers sex trafficking the fastest-growing organized crime, and online channels allowing for the exploitation are only making it easier for predators to do business. The Justice Department believes child sex trafficking could generate as much as $32 billion a year.

Online friendships when you don’t know who is really on the other end of that computer screen is a perfect cover-up for a young child who has the everyday complaints against their parents and needs someone to listen.

Don’t misunderstand me, I have no degree in this and I am not claiming none of my 5 children never got into trouble – but trouble when they were growing up was less dangerous then and Satan had not been given carte blanche to roam our streets and move through our children’s computers and cell phones.

Today, your child lying to you is treated with less disrespect and more as a common, everyday thing. It should also be devastating to you any time your child lies to you because it shows you they don’t feel comfortable enough to tell you the truth and even might suspect that what they are involved in they know YOU would not approve.

Parents today think they should be their children’s friend rather than their parents. It is a parent’s obligation to know what they are doing on their computers – get them out in the open with protection controls installed on them. Be their friend after they reach 25 if they are mature enough to handle it.

And please don’t make the mistake thinking those controls should not be installed on those blasted cell phones they wear almost as an earring. They can get targeted through that phone as well as their computer.

I tell parents all the time, “if you aren’t willing to donate 18 years of your life to every one of your children (because that is what each one not only deserves but requires), then don’t have any.

School Choice: The Hidden Dangers! Must Be Watched Videos!

It is essential that parents and parents-to-be fully understand what is happening in our education system and to fully understand what “School Choice” means to them and their children. When every education system offered (public, charter, voucher private/religious) must be aligned to a certain set of standards, that is NOT a choice.

Again I want to remind you this slow shift in the control of your children through their education has been around for over 100 years. This is not a PARTY “D” or “R” thing, both are involved. What you are seeing is a “pass of control” if you will, from the “unions to the corporate” cronies or from one group of “bad guys” to another group of “bad guys”. Understand none of them are your friends.

This is “SKILLS-BASED EDUCATION”! So you ask what is the difference between skill-based education and knowledge based education.

SKILL-BASED:  This form of education is more about teaching our children “WHAT” to think and it centers around developing and applying specific skills that can then be used to obtain the required knowledge for the workforce. From a teacher’s point of view, it changes the way lesson planning is done. Whereas before the focus would have been on how they could teach the class about a certain topic, skills-based learning means that the focus is now on how that topic can help the children to develop and learn certain skills. In other words, “dumbed down education” and this is where you get 2+2=5 or whatever a child wants. The goal is for the child to be able to justify their anser not so much as if it is correct.

ACADEMIC/KNOWLEDGE BASED:  Teaches a child “HOW” to think and to build upon the knowledge that the pupil already has. There are clear learning objectives set out which link to the activity undertaken, helping the child to see how their existing knowledge will help them to complete the task. For teachers this can mean having more one on one time with pupils to talk through how they are finding the task/subject and giving any additional help they may need. This can seem time-consuming but it will ensure that all pupils are engaged and learning during the lessons and that they will all succeed.

These videos will show you and go into more detail about behind the “double-speak” words which are being used in regard to education/school choice:

PRIVATIZATION:

Understood Meaning:  Allowing a true and free market to work i.e., private schools

Hidden Meaning:  Cronyism in the form of Public-Private Partnerships

SCHOOL CHOICE:

Understood Meaning:  A parent can choose from a wide range of different schools and options

Hidden Meaning:  Parent’s can choose from a narrow range of schools deemed acceptable by the government with no real choice

EDUCATIONAL SAVINGS ACCOUNTS:

Understood Meaning:  A tax-free savings account into which parents may place their own earnings to use for the education options they choose from for their children

Hidden Meaning:  Entitlement programs in the form of vouchers subject to total government control

ACCOUNTABILITY:

Understood Meaning:  That the system (teachers, school boards & government) are answerable to parents & taxpayers

Hidden Meaning:  Answerable to your State and through the ESEA Federal government bureaucracy

LOCAL CONTROL:

Understood Meaning:  Local school districts are setting policy

Hidden Meaning:  The state determines a narrow range in which school districts may have a narrow range of pre-selected options

COMPETENCY:

Understood Definition:  Proficiency in an academic area

Hidden Definition:  Skills-based emotional and psychological training to be used in industry (utilitarian)

“Educating” the Workforce:  The Lie we’ve Unwittingly Embraced:

Part 1   Part 2   Part 3   Part 4

Keep in mind that foundations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Walmart Family Foundation, ALEC, and others have invested deeply and supported BOTH Common Core and Choice/Vouchers.

Example: Education legislation just passed yesterday by Florida includes:

Praises from Jeb Bush and his lapdogs; critics are referring to it as manipulative and detrimental to traditional public schools;  the 278-page bill eliminates a section of Florida’s often-criticized, 2011 teacher merit-pay law; changes standardized testing rules; mandates 20 minutes of recess for elementary school children (exempting charter schools); expands a controversial teacher bonus program and provides new bonuses for most teachers for the next three years.

It also provides financial incentives for successful charter schools to open in neighborhoods with struggling traditional public schools and demands that school districts share some tax money with charters.

Gov. Scott’s $82.4 billion budget is a less than 1% increase from the current year. It includes $20.4 billion for PreK-12 schools, or $7,221 per student, about a $25 increase on the current year, the smallest jump since Florida began to climb out of the recession. House Speaker Corcoran’s push to use $200 million to entice charter schools to compete with chronically failing public schools and another $200 million to pay teachers bonuses based on SAT scores made the cut. (Keep in mind NO ONE will answer a question about the fraud and corruption going on within the Charter school system, not even if any of the money is being paid back or if anyone is going to jail.)There was a great deal of conversation surrounding transparency regarding the closed-door negotiations. But then the lack of transparency in Florida is nothing new since our legislature has for several years received a D or F in that area.

When called on the closed-door meetings, House Speaker Coocoran stated, “Under Article III (of the state Constitution), we have that right, and I’ve said it to you guys from the beginning: One of my biggest criticisms coming in as speaker was, we’re the body closest to the people, the Legislature. And what we’re going to do is, we’re going to go out there and we’re going to grab that authority.” Whew, he certainly sees himself as important. They change everything else in the Constitution, why never the bad things?

Lawmakers also approved legislation on Friday that would increase funding available to students under the state’s de facto voucher program and strengthen protections for expressions of religion in public schools.

Again all this entitlement and lack of oversight in regard to Charter schools with our legislators owning or being associated with Charter schools and at the same time writing and voting on Charter school legislation.

Our State colleges also took a $30.2 million cut, but then the amount being paid to college professors is enough to blow a person’s mind. The amount of debt our children graduate from college with is inexcusable. Take UCF, now the largest college in the country just gave their coach Scott Frost a 300,000 annual raise. The American Athletic Conference coach now earns $2 million per year after one season on the job.

 

This forward movement to control our children through education is controlling every aspect of government at this time. Parents was to fix it is to STOP re-electing these same old pieces of legislature bull and get some new blood in and if they defy us, then move them out too. They are re-call measures you know!

Jeb Bush Caught with His Pants Down Again!

We the People caught you! Florida is the absolute worst state when it comes to the education of our children. Not only are we still being contaminated by the likes of Jeb Bush and his uneducated ideas regarding the education of our children, we have the largest herd of lap dogs in the country continually sniffing at his backside.

Not many independent thinkers here. Everyone just plays follow the leader and this has been going on since the passage of the original legislation putting Charter schools in motion.

To top it off we have a governor (Scott) who thinks he is the best thing ever since the invention of peanut butter and is just about as sticky. His idea of education has become to “follow the leader” being Jeb Bush taking funds from traditional public schools and playing like Congress to load the wallet of Charter schools with our tax dollars. And Scott thinks he deserves to win a seat in the U.S. Senate next year – watch out!

Part of Florida’s new legislation is to now protect the failing charter schools by keeping information from the public regarding the Charter school testing scores and results. Included in this “swamp” package is the forcing of the “D” and “F” scored schools to close or become Charter schools, ignoring the laid out “turnaround” plans by the “elected” school boards.

Bush and Scott both have endorsed this joke of a new Secretary of Education who like the two of them, know nothing about educating children – just the manipulation of money and lies.

How many times do people have to learn about the depth of the manipulation that has gone on in this state and others to capture the control of our children turning most of them into walking and talking “dumbed down” fabrics of what they could have been?

You all can take your 21st Century College Readiness BULL and stick it! These children are no more ready for college than the man in the moon. They can’t add and subtract simple change transactions or read well enough to comprehend what they are reading. And you think they are going to get into college? No, the real plan is for them not to get into college – that is what the “school-to-work” legislation was all about. LINK

Do you remember a couple of years ago Condoleezza Rice, CFR member, stating she thought the CFR should take over the education of our children? Now the New World Order freaks are trying to get their two cents into the equation.

Tax-supported school choice eroding our public, private, religious, and home school education is the vehicle to change not only the right of Americans to choose the kind of education they wish for their children but is removing our representative form of government to unelected councils.

Heck, people like Sen. Lamar Alexander and his lapdogs believe the system should have our children cradle to grave, 24/7. They want to take them from the hospital nursery. Just what is in the minds of these “swamp feeders”? Do they intend to begin just walking into hospital nurseries and taking our babies to be raised by the government?

Childrens Future

Never forget that Jeb Bush and all the cronies including members of Congress, former presidents, Pope Francis and your local government are working toward a New World Order and have no shame in using our children to accomplish that by indoctrination in the schools and removing your rights.

Jeb Bush’s comment on the campaign trail that he “actually carries little Baby Jesus in his pants pocket because it’s my strength,” makes me ill. This is a man that has spent his life following directives to ruin our children’s future’s and he is going to place the blame on Jesus? Reading this will tell you he does NOT follow Jesus’ lessons. Remember a good share of his funding for his foundations comes from Bill Gates, destroyer of all he touches!

On the other hand, Bush expressed this gobbledygook during the campaign “I am asked sometimes whether I would ever allow my decisions in government to be influenced by my Christian faith. The simple and safe reply is no, never, of course not.” Can’t have it both ways Jebbie – liar, liar, pants on fire!

DeVos ‘ push is for all schools to be under the title of private dances in tune with everything Bush has tried to do for years. I would guess that along with those in the Senate who also were sitting on the Education Committee and approved her for her appointment and received political donations from DeVos, Bush made a strong recommendation for her appointment to Trump.

Again, Mr. Trump, I thought we were draining the swamp, not filling it up!

When it comes to truth and Jeb Bush you won’t usually hear it and it certainly got out there during the 2016 campaign. Words matter, so it’s important to know that Bush never calls public school districts public schools districts. Instead, he says the United States has “over 13,000 government-run monopolies run by unions.” He doesn’t mention that some districts don’t have any unions, that unions can’t win a contract agreement by politicians, and that a number of governors have sharply curtailed the power of unions.

Bush advocates using public money for students to use to pay for private school tuition to include religious schools. I am not so sure that fits well with the 1st Amendment however in Florida it will do no good to file a lawsuit, because when it comes to anything education the judges are refusing to hear the cases.

The focus of his Bush’s 1998 campaign for Florida governor was the “Opportunity Scholarship Program,” a voucher program that allowed state funds to be used to pay tuition at church-run schools. It was struck down by the state Supreme Court in 2006. A short time later, the Florida Senate, controlled by Republicans, refused his request to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot repealing a provision in the state constitution separating church and state.

Bush and his legislative cronies tried to pass a similar amendment in 2012 and the voters shot it down. So as per usual, Bush found a back door for his scam. His Florida legislator lapdogs passed the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program, which allows students to attend private school with the help of publicly funded tax credits. In November 2014, he opened the annual conference of his Foundation for Excellence in Education by having himself introduced by a student who touted the program for helping to send her to private school.

In July 2014, Citizens for Strong Schools, Inc. and Fund Education Now amended a five-year-old lawsuit alleging the state has failed to adequately fund public education to include new claims concerning the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program and the McKay voucher program for students with special needs stating they were lowering funding for public schools and increasing funding for Charter/Choice/Vouchers by unconstitutionally “diverting” money from Florida’s public schools. They lost!  Link

Bush has said that “we can’t just outsource public education to bureaucracies and public education unions and hope for the best,” but he is perfectly comfortable on outsourcing public education to for-profit education companies who open public charter schools but run them like a business. (Is it a coincidence that Florida has the second-highest number of for-profit charter schools?) AND WE ARE STILL #47 IN THE COUNTRY!

Florida’s corporate brained Governor Scott already has a program in the state he claims is bringing jobs to Florida called Enterprise Florida which has for years been dumping tax dollars into it and at the same time giving horrendous tax credits to the corporations who are playing the game.

Now once again, Florida is using more tax credits on corporate income taxes and insurance premium taxes for donations to scholarship-funding organizations (SFOs), nonprofits that provide scholarships for low-income students and children in foster care and offer funds for transportation to public schools outside a child’s district. Businesses get a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for SFO contributions, with total credits capped at $559.1 million. Unused credits can be carried forward to the next fiscal year.

They claim this plan proves they are NOT using tax dollars for the voucher scam, however, the shift in income must come from somewhere and with Scott looking at increasing state property taxes to make up for the shortfall, tax dollars are being affected, even if only indirectly.

  • Scholarships can be worth up to $5,886, though they may not exceed private school tuition and fees. Transportation grants for public schools are worth up to $500.
  • Again, the whole program is geared to “low-income” children which in itself is a form of “segregation”.

Back in 2011, Charter Schools USA, a charter school management company, makes its money charging the school a management fee similar to what happens when you live in an Association development. At that time, that money was a percentage of the $150 million in tax $$ that the state was paying the company to run its 25 Charter schools in Florida. At just one of their schools in Osceola County, Charter Schools USA was paid $822,182 in administration fees for just one year.

I wonder just exactly what you get for those $$! Lack of legislative oversite because the owners are buddies with Bush and most of the legislators who I would remind you, in Florida, are ALLOWED to own or be affiliated with Charter schools while at the same time writing, voting on and passing Charter school legislation. Do you think this is a conflict of interest?

As Bush walks around puffing his chest out at his clever work, you will never hear him talk about the Charter school test scores that were either no better or worse than the public schools. Or that under his program of assigning letter grades to schools based on test scores, a disproportionate number of charters get failing academic letter grades from the state. Or that Florida’s charter sector has been marred by numerous closures of charters — some even during the school year — and repeated financial mismanagement and corruption scandals.

Did you ever hear of your children going to school on a Monday morning and the school is locked up – lock, stock and barrel? Happens with Charter schools all the time.

The standardized test scores that the Bush reforms used to hold schools and districts “accountable” to came from his now-defunct Florida Comprehensive Accountability Test (FCAT) program, which collapsed over the years as the integrity of the test scores were questioned repeatedly by school districts.  In 2012, after a disaster with an FCAT writing test in which only 27 percent of fourth graders scored proficient — down from 81 percent the year before. It wasn’t the first time either.

And don’t think this hasn’t been tried before – the voucher and privatization experiment. In the 1980’s, Chile under the dictator Augusto Pinochet and continued by both liberal and conservative leadership, moved to vouchers and privatization to supposedly offer better education access for all.

In 1995, beloved by many Milton Friedman used Chile as an example as to why the U.S. needed to privatize public education. Thank God, we didn’t take his advice, since the voucher and privatization experiment in Chile resulted in a greater inequality and less educational access.

If you think my thoughts regarding charter/choice/vouchers is a “stand alone” prorogate, read some of the comments made by a DeVos Michigan Charter school (Eagle Crest Charter Academy) (ECCA) board president Brian Polet, and what he has to say in his resignation letter:

“This copy-written, corporate driven education model has been developed by non-teachers and Edu-crats from Washington to Lansing to the detriment of students, parents, taxpayers and local school boards. Without control of curriculum and a limited control of budgets, CC has effectively removed local control from parents and put it the hands of ESPs, the Dept. of Ed and state boards.” 

“As a logical conclusion to this hokum, ECCA has fallen victim to this Soviet-style education. The chaos that has ensued is not the consequence of bad management by NHA, but a result of a flawed educational system.  More disturbing to me is the inability to guarantee the data privacy of our students. Equally troubling is the ability for educational personal to manipulate tests and assessments to move any student into certain fields or vocations and to modify behavior without consent or knowledge of the parent. 

Sadly, as a volunteer I have no “skins” in this game. This puts the board and its individual members at a decided disadvantage against the combined efforts of CMU and NHA. I want no part of a lousy educational mode. With CC, we no longer have the Socratic model of education, but a new Bill Gates vocational schooling for worker bees and drones. Plainly, I have not left education, education has left me and more importantly, our students.” 

Keep in mind that Jeb Bush is also a lap dog to the New World Order!

FINALLY OUT OF THE CLOSET!

This is a combination of several e-mails I have received from Charlotte Iserbyt and if you don’t know who she is you need to learn. I promise you, you will not be disappointed, but you will be very angry.

I feel truly (literally) sick to my stomach. Jane Robbins 2017 article is 32 years too late.    Did she really just find out that Outcomes Based Education (OBE)  is Skinnerian/Pavlovian performance-based education!!!!!!!!!????????????

Note Robbins carefully does not tell you what the OBE method is:  It is the Pavlovian/Skinnerian method.  Skinner said, “I could make a pigeon a high achiever by reinforcing it on a proper schedule.”

Did you know your children are considered animals/birds and this method is necessary for school-to-work, Soviet polytechnical education, to spin off profits for the global elite? Tax-funded school choice/charters with unelected boards (taxation without representation)which are also international are, of course,  necessary.  Is Robbins naive or is she a willing accomplice to Heritage’s  implementation of the Trotskyite globalist agenda…through education restructuring?

Of course, so-called experts like Jane Robbins, American Principles Project, and the so-called “education experts” in all the other Trotskyite organizations, especially Heritage Foundation, trotting all over the country, since the early years of this century, opposing Common Core (major diversion from most important/dangerous issue: tax-funded school choice/charters going in all over the world…necessary for workforce training)… shouldn’t be expected  (?) to have read small booklet  Back to Basics Reform or OBE Skinnerian International Curriculum, 1985, *necessary for United States Participation in a One World Socialist Government scheduled for the early years of the 21st Century.   Or to know that Competency-Based Ed is Outcomes Based Education (Skinner)?  Click on this link:

And they couldn’t be expected to have read my later 700-page book the Deliberate Dumbing Down of America…a chronological paper trail, 1999; 2011.  Click on this link as this huge book is free and downloadable. Or my Soviets in the Classroom…America’s Latest Education Fad which covered the details of the 1985 Reagan-Gorbachev Education Agreement and the Carnegie-Soviet Academy of Science Agreement.

All of which were very successfully BOYCOTTED across the country by the Heritage Foundation and all another neocon Trotskyite conservative groups across the nation…over the past 35 years!!!

The Heritage Foundation being THE very worst Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing. That doesn’t mean there aren’t many more baby wolves, all of whom fell for the $ bait provided by the Council for National Policy (CNP) and Heritage, (right wing of the left wing Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and other tax-exempt foundations and corporations like  Gates, etc.

Bait was funding to keep our true education researchers’ (some long gone) work from being circulated and read. Major media was also deeply involved in treason.   Book SPAN had three copies of my 3D book.  I finally gave up trying to get an interview with them.

Carroll Quigley told all of us in his book Tragedy and Hope: (and if you have not read it you are missing a surprise. It is wonderful and downloadable.

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.” Carroll Quigley.

The money and power behind the left/right combo, including media, is so IMMENSE it can and has very successfully denied  Americans and others access to true, unadulterated history of how education was used to bring our nation into the United Nations spawning communist New World Order (disorder).

There are others we all know and admire who have had their excellent work 100% censored.  Especially reading expert/teacher Ann Herzer who, in 1981, educated Charlotte regarding the evil OBE Mastery Learning Skinnerian/Pavlovian method.  Herzer wrote her Arizona Congressman Eldon Rudd regarding having to go through the truly “sick” ECRI teacher training in the early eighties, which really did make students sick.  (She sent me doctor statements to that effect.)   Her letter to Rudd was forwarded to my office in the US Ed Dept.  All of that history is in my

Herzer wrote her Arizona Congressman Eldon Rudd regarding having to go through the truly “sick” ECRI teacher training in the early eighties, which really did make students sick.  (She sent me doctor statements to that effect.)   Her letter to Rudd was forwarded to my office in the US Ed Dept.  All of that history is in my Back to Basics booklet.

Dennis Cuddy’s work is prolific and sells on the Internet as well.  Dennis also worked in the U.S. Dept. of Education in the eighties.   Click on following Amazon link:  Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more

Is it too late?  I don’t know.

“They” would never have allowed Robbins to get her May 4, 2017 article published if they weren’t 100% sure “they” had accomplished all their objectives, starting with Skinner/Spady/Block/Bloom OBE in late sixties, followed up by the Leave No Child Behind  concept (many deceptive labels),  and recent reauthorization of ESSA.

U.S. Soviet (Reagan-Gorbachev) and Carnegie-Soviet Academy of Science education agreements 1985, supported by Heritage Foundation (Soviet polytechnical training and Marxist brainwashing); Common (Communist) Core (early pilot assessment:  testing initiated by Carnegie Corp. in 1947); first formal assessment  in 1969 in form of   National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP); and tax-funded school choice/charters with unelected boards, to put in the Soviet polytech workforce training system lifelong, called for in Carnegie’s Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies, 1934, pdf available at American Deception.com.  Tax-funded School Choice, necessary for workforce training, originally came from the left!

Do I really exist?  Are the names and works of Barbara Morris, Patrick Huff, Steve Schran,  Ann Herzer, Dennis and Peggy Cuddy, Anita Hoge,  Angela Alef, Cris Shardelman,   Edward Griffin, Robert Goldsborough, Mary Thompson,  Betsy Kraus, Polly Anglin, Beth Trotto,  Betty Freauf,  Linda Liotta, Jackie Lawrence, Jeannie Georges,  Jil Wilson,  Jane Aitken, Martha Spalding,  Jake Speed, Judith Reisman, as being expert writers/researchers ever made  public by the controlled conservatives and controlled media?    Have you ever heard of any of these great researchers/writers/school board members/activists?

Are the names and works  of the late Antony Sutton,  Maureen Heaton, Marilyn Boyer, Joan Veon, JoAnn Abrigg, Ruth Feld,  Mary Larkin, James Townsend,  Bettina Dobbs, Gene Malone, Shirley Correll, Rosalind Haley,  O. Jerome (Jed) Brown, Don Bell, Arch Roberts, Betty Lewis, Ann Frazier, Robert  Morris,  Jo Hindman, Elisabeth Russinoff, Norman Dodd,  Cong.  John Ashbrook, and all the other “late” greats ever made public by the controlled conservatives and controlled media? Have you ever heard of any of these late great researchers/writers/activists?

Apparently not.  At least in the minds of the great majority of Americans who have been deliberately denied all their great work exposing the communist/regional government takeover of America, mostly through education!

No kidding, Jane Robbins article published in The Federalist blew me away; I feel literally ill.   I suspected but wasn’t 100% sure what the neocons were up to in pushing the local school to work agenda, but her article absolutely confirmed my suspicions.  “They” who went up against me, lead me, of all people, to believe I might possibly  be “slightly off target” in my suspicions.

Having been fighting and writing about Outcomes Based Education (OBE: Skinner) for 36 years and having been boycotted, lied about, etc., and finding out that so-called experts like Robbins really haven’t a clue  about what many of us have been writing and speaking about (or does she?) has me in total shock.  They have obviously been entrapped by the “big guys” like Carnegie, Heritage, et al. who support the lifelong community education/workforce training/global economic system.  Click on following link for history of communist agenda, using education, starting in early 20th Century.  http://www.abcsofdumbdown.blogspot.com

Have I been living under a rock since 1981 when I served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement in the U.S. Dept. of Education… when I went to the first Skinnerian “Mastery Learning”: aka  Competency-Based (CBE); Performance-Based (PBE)l Results-Based (RBE);  Outcomes-Based (OBE) brown bag luncheon held in the basement of the Department, at which  sociologist William Spady propounded the amazing facts about Mastery Learning OBE/Skinner, using videos to back up his claims that “IT WORKS”.  So does dog training: “Sit, Fido”… Fido sits; then give Fido the dog biscuit.  Stimulus/response.

And subsequently wrote Back to Basics Reform or OBE (Skinnerian Operant Conditioning) in 1984.

Beverly Le Haye, President of Concerned Women for America, invited me to speak at one of her conferences in New Jersey in mid-eighties, after I had leaked a major technology grant Project BEST to Human Events and gotten myself fired for doing so.  I had brought copies of my Back to Basics to sell at the conference, but when I put copies of Back to Basics on my table Le Haye or one of her people told me “you can’t sell that book here”. 

One of the leaders at Eagle Forum spread the word that “Charlotte wrote Back to Basics Reform or… because she was sour grapes over being fired from her job in the Dept. of Ed.”  That is a lie and so very, very funny.

I got myself fired in 1982 because I decided to leak Project BEST:   Better Education Skills through Technology to Human Events.    Knowing I would get fired for doing so, I got all the important confidential documents out of my office BEFORE I leaked Project BEST to Human Events.  I GOT MYSELF FIRED!!!!

And then I wrote President Reagan a lengthy letter giving him background info regarding Dept. of Ed being a Marxist factory.  I never received a response to that letter, and waited 35 years to write Reagan Library to see if the President had in fact received my letter.   Click on following for amazing response from  Reagan Library:

Many of the original documents I took out of my office (absconded with)  can be accessed at American Deception.com    Click on Education Category in the left-hand column. When that section pops up type into the search engine (upper right) whatever document you want to view.  Example: for Reece/Dodd Committee Hearings Tax-Exempt Foundations, type in “Reece”.    The 3000-page document will pop up.  For Skull and Bones membership catalogs, type in “skull”.

We have made the website 100% FREE for all.   Everything you want to know about “what happened” is at that website, hand-scanned original documents none of us were ever meant to see.

Maybe what I found out today is a blessing, since there is no longer any way (excuse) for people to deny that neoconservative organizations are  THE problem.

At least the leftist Democrats have been honest about their wicked globalist agenda.  My feeling is the leftist Democrats in Congress put their feet up on their desks once Congress passed  President Carter’s legislation creating the Dept. of Education in 1978.  They probably said “our job destroying American children’s values with Office of Education programs, starting in 1965, has been institutionalized.”  “Good job, Democrats!”

So they turned future education policy, which was really Carnegie’s 1934 plan (change education from academics to workforce training/school choice, etc.) over to the neoconservative Trotskyites who flowed into the U.S. Dept. of Education under President Ronald Reagan.

President Reagan’s late Secretary of Education T. H. Bell was a real commie “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.  Read his Performance Accountability System for School Administrators?  Especially Appendix A, pages  160-161 titled “Humanizing Education” and decide what adjective you would put before Bell’s name.  You can buy it online.

It was the late Secretary T.H.  Bell, Utah,  who came up with the deceitful “Nation at Risk” report, part of dialectic to change American education from academics to lifelong Soviet workforce training (including community  education with its very dangerous communist mental health and early childhood education) going in as I write.

Education was far better back in 1980 than it is now.  Bell had to put phony statistics out there in the Nation at Risk  Report (create problem, get people to scream, impose FINAL solution): Passage of latest ESSA (above link)  with all its Skinnerian “freedom killing” requirements.

May God bless America.  We need massive prayers.

P.S.  The late English novelist, C.S. Lewis, said:  “When education becomes training, civilization dies”, or words to that effect.

EDITORS NOTE:  This article is not being shared to imply you should be buying any of the items mentioned – this is not a “sell” posting. However, you would do well you read them all and most are free online to learn and study at your leisure. Parents need to tighten up and know what has and is happening to their children.

$500 Billion in Accounting Errors?

And that is just in the Obama Administration Department of Housing and Urban Development. Just who was overseeing their audits?

As I have said before, Education comes in many forms about many things!

Over $520 billion in budgetary mistakes and clerical errors. Dr. Ben Carson in his new job as Secretary of HUD was charged as his first undertaking to do a thorough audit of HUD which has been accused of fraud and over-budget projects through the entire Obama administration.

“The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” said one of the auditors.

But the problems didn’t stop there. According to the Housing and Urban Development Inspector General’s report, “There were several other unresolved audit matters, which restricted our ability to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to express an opinion. These unresolved audit matters relate to:

(1) the Office of General Counsel’s refusal to sign the management representation letter

(2) HUD’s improper use of cumulative and first-in, first out budgetary accounting methods of disbursing community planning and development program funds

(3) the $4.2 billion in nonpooled loan assets from Ginnie Mae’s stand-alone financial statements that we could not audit due to inadequate support

(4) the improper accounting for certain HUD assets and liabilities

(5) material differences between HUD’s sub-ledger and general ledger accounts.

This audit report contains 11 material weaknesses, 7 significant deficiencies, and 5 instances of noncompliance with applicable laws and regulations.

The auditors said the massive budgetary problems “were due to an inability to establish a compliant control environment, implement adequate financial accounting systems, retain key financial staff, and identify appropriate accounting principles and policies.”

Can we speculate how many other departments would fall into the same category – IRS, Health and Human Services (how much out of their funds have illegally walked into Planned Parenthood?

In a 2014 report, the combined unpaid taxes for federal workers and federal retirees surpassed the $3.5 billion the IRS reported. This includes 305,000 federal employees and retirees and we have to ask the questions:

  • Why are they not having to make payments through their payroll checks?
  • Why are they not withholding the retirees’ retirement checks until their taxes are paid?
  • Why haven’t any of them been fired for breaking the law?

The IRS goes after everyone else, so why not federal employees – they are grossly overpaid anyway – they can spare it. Link

HUD employees are the worst offenders, with a delinquency rate of 4.7 percent. By contrast, those at the Treasury Department touted the least number of delinquencies, with a rate of 1.2 percent.

Oh, don’t forget those slimy House and Senate electeds – they aren’t clean either. Roughly 5 percent in the House owe taxes; another 3.5 percent in the Senate face a similar situation.

All the good citizens of the country just paid their illegal taxes, but then if you were to NOT pay your taxes maybe good fortune would befall you as it has Al Sharpton and Newt Gingrich. They continually have their “I don’t really know anything, but I like to hear myself talk” visits for interviews, guest appearances, and people are always asking their opinions – but if you are smart you would turn them off.

What Sharpton doesn’t tell viewers is that his 2004 presidential committee owes the U.S. Treasury $19,500 a decade after being caught accepting illegal campaign contributions, according to federal records. It also owes the Federal Election Commission several thousand dollars in unpaid fines, even after paying off a separate $208,000 penalty in 2009 for several campaign violations.

Sharpton has said he has no immediate plans for paying his debt and why should he – he hasn’t paid any of the penalties he has already accrued, what is a few more?

An October 2014 Federal report indicate Gingrich’s “Newt 2012” presidential campaign owed the IRS $26,507 for an “income tax liability” and that is only one debt he owes from his campaign. The debts together total more than $4.6 million; Newt 2012 raised a meager $37,822 during 2014’s fourth quarter, with about half that money coming from the campaign renting the personal information of supporters to a data broker.

The Department of Justice rarely takes action against deadbeat political committees except in the most extreme circumstances. In 2013, it pursued Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign to buy high-end electronics, a Rolex watch, and the like. (Jackson’s campaign committee also owes the government more than $16,000 for election-law violations.)Even some

Even some of State elected officials can’t seem to take care of their taxes, but if you are the everyday guy or gal that goes to work to pay their salaries – if you don’t pay your taxes they will surely find you.

Recently, Erik Fresen, a termed-out FL Representative from Coral Gables once again got his hiney in money trouble. Starting as far back as 2010:

  • Court records showed Fresen owed close to thirty grand in taxes to the Internal Revenue Service and $641,000 to his mortgage lender. For a guy who claims a personal net worth of $330,000, that is a lot a debt. Even worse, he didn’t list the obligations on his most recent personal financialdisclosure statements.
  • Not filing his campaign disclosure financial statements is a biggy for him (a repeat offender) Under Florida law, it is illegal for public officials to omit liabilities on the declaration form.
  • His 2010 disclosure sheet showed he still owed $113,000 in Sallie Mae student loans after 11 years after graduating with a degree in finance and international affairs – Oops!
  • December 5, 2012, the Florida Ethics Commission announced that it had found “probable cause” that Fresen “failed to properly disclose his annual net worth, assets, and liabilities from 2008 to 2011 with Fresen calling the whole thing “a textbook political attack”.
  • He also faced a lawsuit filed against him by a mortgage company after he did not make payments on his house, a $29,199 lien from the Internal Revenue Service for taxes owed, and a $10,000 lien from the Miami-Dade Building Department for a code enforcement violation.”
  • A conflict of interest ethics complaint was filed against him in 2011 for voting on a proposal that would give benefits to some charter schools.
  • In the 2016 legislative session, he has fast-tracked a bill to force Florida public school districts to share their construction tax money with charters (taking note he has presented and pushed many bills in favor of charter schools which have benefitted his sister and brother-in-law who own over 45 charter schools in FL and is now working for a charter school construction company). LINK
  • And last but not least – MORE TROUBLES FOR THE SOUTH FLORIDA CREW – ERIK FRESEN TO PLEAD GUILTY FOR FAILING TO FILE TAX RETURN ON $270K via Jay Weaver of the Miami Herald – Fresen, a former Republican state representative from Miami-Dade, plans to plead guilty to a federal misdemeanor charge of failing to file a tax return on income of $270,136 in 2011 while he was serving in the Legislature and working as a land-use consultant. Fresen, 40, who was term-limited in 2016 after serving eight years as a legislator in a district stretching from West Miami to Cutler Bay, was charged in Miami federal court this week. That paved the way for his planned guilty plea before U.S. District Judge Robert Scola. Fresen could face from probation up to one year in prison.

He will get another slap on the hand, probation and still not keep his payments up. It is chronic as he has always lived beyond his means and spent his time in the State legislature passing bills that would financially help him, his family, his businesses and those that could fill his pockets.

Yet Americans continue to elect these cheats who spend your hard earned money and never pay their fair share. NOTE:  This does not apply to all – just most!

I do have to wonder who Fresen’s financial professor was in college or is he just like Jeb Bush and doesn’t know how to stay out of conflict?

Pray H.R. 610 stays in Committee and dies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
