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

Replacing Erdoğan with Fethullah Gulen 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Graham Fuller Gulen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“The Chokehold on Our Children” Part 2

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

I call it Collectivism versus Individualism!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now the real wake-up call!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Charter/Choice/Corruption and Egos = Gulen

 Gulen Trap Expands

Even the famous Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci was a deep opponent of “progressive” educational methods. He wrote: “The most paradoxical aspect is that this new type of school is advocated as being democratic, while in fact it is destined not merely to perpetuate social differences, but to crystallize them.” He rightly saw that “progressive” methods were of no help to the poor – only intensified it!

Lack of oversight and filling the wallets of legislators by Charter School Management companies is one of the biggest problems in our country today.  I should say after the unlawful intrusion of the Federal government into our children’s education however, this is a path to the Federal government’s total takeover of our education system. Along the way corruption is more the rule than the exception and one of the reasons Charter schools are failing.

One of our biggest dangers to the sovereignty of this country and the protection of our children is the Gulen Charter School system. The American Foreign Policy Council has stated:  “The Charter school experiment has resulted in the U.S. being the ONLY country in the world where the Gulen Movement has been allowed to establish their schools fully funded by the host country’s taxpayers.” Just how insane is that!

Futah 2The Gulen Movement is fantastic at advertising PR, and bestowing fake honors on their students, politicians, and local media and academia. Hizmet aka Gulen Movement will shamelessly act like satisfied American parents or students. They will lie, cajole, manipulate, bribe, blackmail, threaten, and intimidate to get their way which is to expand the Islamic movement through Gulen charter schools. If this doesn’t work they play victim and cry “islamophobia”. Beware of the Gulen propagandists and Gulen owned media outlets.

It should be noted that Turkey has transferred its alliance from Europe and the United States to Russia and Iran. It has moved toward friendship with Hamas, Hezbollah, and Syria and created a pervasive anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, and anti-America animus throughout the populace.

Just last year, the Senate introduced the The Immigration Innovation (“I-Squared”) bill,  S.153, introduced by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R), Sen. Jeff Flake (R), Sen. Marco Rubio (R), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D), Sen. Chris Coons (D), and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D), that would enable companies to hire an unlimited number of workers with advanced degrees from U.S. institutions in science, technology, engineering and math, which critics have said would turn some universities into diploma factories for foreign students. Currently, the first 20,000 H-1B applications for those with advanced STEM degrees are exempted.

Senators who have since signed onto S.153 are Republicans Kirk, Lee, Gardner, McCain, Heller and Ayotte with the addition of Democrat McCaskill and an Independent King. Thank the good Lord this bill has gone nowhere since January 29, 2015.

Hatch said he hoped the bill would be a gateway to “more progress” on a broader immigration bill and at the same time would increase the annual cap on H-1B visas from 65,000 to 115,000, reform student visas, “authorize employment for the dependent spouses of H-1B visas holders, and allow a grace period for foreign workers to “change jobs and not be out of status.”

It needs to be noted that 3 out of 4 Americans with STEM degrees do not hold a job in the STEM field.  It has been calculated that 100% of new hires in the tech industry could be guest workers if Congress continues to increase the number of H-1B visas, which would hold “down wages for both them and new hires and at the same time keep American jobs away from Americans.”

Someone who has found their way into using the H-1B visa program to their best interest is the Fethullah Gülen Movement (FGM).

What should be the greatest attention getters in this country in regard to Charter schools is the Gulen movement. And make no mistake, it is a movement. It is noted and proven their main goal in setting up these Charter schools around the country has been to revive and institute the Ottoman Empire here in America. At the same time, the Gulen Charter system is the largest user of the H-1B visas in this country.

Gulen Charter schools are receiving our tax dollars of which are in turn being turned over to the various Gulen foundations. Fethullah Gulen is referred to as a scholar by the media when in fact he only completed the sixth grade. According to his website he is an “authoritative mainstream Turkish Muslim scholar, thinker, author, poet, opinion leader and educational activist who supports interfaith and intercultural dialogue, science, democracy and spirituality and opposes violence and turning religion into a political ideology.”

According to U.S. Department of Labor data, as of 2012 almost one third of the applications that the Cosmos Foundation which oversees all the Gulen schools in Texas received were for positions not related to mathematics and science, such as art teachers, English teachers, history teachers, accountants, assistant principals, legal counsel, and public relations coordinators. Prior to receiving their visa status from the US, it was reported these future employees had already been accepted into Harmony Charter system when their job positions changed, and that Harmony always promotes from within.

From 2001 to August 2010 the Cosmos Foundation had filed 1,157 H1-B visa applications, and it had imported 731 employees under the H1-B visa, a higher number than all of the other providers of secondary education in the United States combined.  By 2012 the U.S. Department of Labor certified 1,197 H1-B visa applications from Cosmos.

It is to be noted that foreign-educated teachers who would like to teach in U.S. public schools (K-12th grade) must also be certified by the state where they would like to work. Be aware though that some Gulen schools operate under the assumption that just because the school has been granted a certification from the U.S. Labor Department for a certain number of teachers that that qualifies and enables them to teach without certification. Parents should ask to see the certification of all H-1B teachers no matter where they teach.

July, 2015, Turkey’s President Erdogan stated the United States fosters the Gulen movement by allowing them to be in this country. Erdoğan stated that the Gülen Movement operates over 160 charter schools in the U.S. which receives state funding. With regards to how Turkey was dealing with the Gülen Movement and its network of schools, Erdoğan said that the U.S.-based Fethullah Gülen, had “ran away” to the U.S. in 1999, and then established between 150 and 160 schools on U.S. soil.

Fethullah Gulen was forced to leave Turkey having been accused of infiltrating key institutions, including police, judiciary and bureaucracy inside Turkey and trying to take over the country.

The president said that the so-called Gülen Movement was earning huge sums of money through these networks of schools. The Turkish government accuses the Gülen Movement of infiltrating key institutions, including police, judiciary and bureaucracy inside Turkey. “The key point in [winning the] battle with them was the prep schools,” Erdoğan said. “They earned around a billion Turkish liras [around $386 million] from such prep schools. We have shut them down and it was handled,” he added.

Gates MonsterWould it surprise you to know that “not really such a nice guy to our children”, Bill Gates through his Gates Foundation and the Texas High School Project in 2007 shelled out $10,550,000 to the Gulen’s Cosmos Foundation? It certainly doesn’t surprise me since Gates through his foundation has funded everything evil in regard to our children for years – especially through education (CCSS).

The Internal Revenue Service Form 990 for Cosmos shows that as of 2010 the Cosmos Foundation received $41,570,721 from taxpayers. These Gulen schools around the country are also eligible for Title I funds.

An audit done of the Harmony Charter school system and the Cosmos Foundation which was released in July 2012 was done by the TEA and announced that $186,197 in federal grant funds intended to improve education of low income and disabled children was misspent, with 34% of examined expenses being misspent, or 16.1% of the total expenses associated with the grants being misspent. The TEA deemed this “unallowable.” The TEA found that, on one occasion, a campus not eligible for Title I funds received Title I funds. In another, grant funds were used to cover payroll costs, a manner not allowed.

What did the TEA do about it?  There is no documentation to be found that shows the Cosmos Foundation and/or Harmony Charter school system was ever required to pay the Federal government back the misspent funds.

Now it has come to our attention Congress has been taking Gulen funded vacations to Turkey and not all of this activity is being properly documented. Surprised? I’m not!

The teachers, men and women, are allowed to begin teaching immediately (certification?) and these teachers are expected to give back to the school 30-40% of their salary. This money is placed into a secret fund which is used for the Gulen movement.

Gulen Charter schools are the largest charter network in the country and recently red flags have been raised by the FBI. They now have decided to investigate for immigration fraud as well as a misuse of taxpayer $$.  Remember these students are receiving taxpayer dollars as in any other Charter school, but the teachers are having to give back a large portion of their salaries which goes into a secret Gulen movement fund and these funds are taxpayer funds.

Gulen powers to be admit most of the Gulen schools claim to be STEM schools and that is the reason they need to use Turkish teachers. Critics also find it hard to believe that qualified American teachers in math and science are hard to find. One would hope though that American teachers are smart enough to stay away from the likes of Fethullah and his cult.

A former president of the parent’s group at the Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School, Ruth Hocker started asking questions when popular, certified American teachers were replaced by uncertified Turkish men who often spoke limited English and were paid higher salaries. Most were placed in math and science classes.

I had previously reported on this blog about school parents describing how uncertified teachers on H-1B visas were moved from one charter school to another when their “emergency” teaching credentials expired and they told of a pattern of sudden turnovers of Turkish business managers, administrators, and board members. They always know how to play the system!

According to one U.S. government document, Gülenist’s use their school worldwide network (including dozens of schools in the U.S.) to cherry-pick students they think are susceptible to being molded as proselytizers and we have steadily heard reports about how the schools indoctrinate boarding students.”

The movement targets youth in the eighth through twelfth grades, mentor and indoctrinate them in the ışıkevi (Illuminated),  educate them in the Fethullah schools, and prepare them for future careers in legal, political, and educational professions in order to create the ruling classes of the future Islamist, Turkish state.”

Even more telling is a comment from Nurettin Veren, Gulen’s right hand man for 35 years who said: “These schools are like shop windows. Recruitment and Islamization are carried out through night classes.

Additionally, many of these students take 10-day summer trips to Turkey and you have to wonder where the heads of their parents are – even as to why they would place their child in an Islamic school. One teacher reported her class won a free cultural trip to Turkey through an art contest sponsored by a Gülen organization called the Atlantic Institute. They openly admit some of the founders and donors of the Institute are inspired by the values of the Hizmet Movement (Turkish for ‘service’) also called Gulen Movement.

Atlantic Institute tells you that the Hizmet Movement is a values-driven social movement and philosophy that advances interfaith dialogue, education and community service as tools to build a better and more harmonious society. The movement was inspired by the philosophy and teachings of Fethullah Gulen.

Teachers reported they were taken on a 10-day death march through Turkey and then after having been deprived of food the Gülenist’s hosts brought us to a building called the Journalist and Writer’s “light house” which was a compound. This is where we got the cult spiel for 2 hours. The speaker told us, ‘Fethullah Gülen, he is the imam that sheds light on the dark waters of our time,'” said the teacher.

“This trip was not about a moderate message of interfaith dialogue or Turkish culture. The whole purpose was to promote the imam Fethullah Gülen,” said the teacher.

The Gülen movement is a transnational religious and social movement led by Turkish Islamic scholar and preacher Fethullah Gülen. The movement has no official name but it is usually referred to as Hizmet (“the Service”) by its followers and as Cemaat (“the Community/Assembly”) by the broader public in Turkey.

Futhullah Gulen Graham FullerAt the same time, the U.S. government is allowing Fethullah Gülen to live in exile from his own country hidden away from the public eye in Saylorsburg, PA. Why do you suppose this is? Would it catch your eye if I tell you that the CIA was responsible for giving Gulen his hiding place from his own country? Under the excuse of “for health reasons”, truth be known Gulen’s health problem is diabetes and can be taken care of in almost any country.

Where is the U.S. State Department in all this?  Another case of the U.S. thinking they know who the leader of a country should be? Approval has to come through them for international education programs to be in this country. Is the State Department aware of what is happening or is this just part of more of the same with a dabble of corruption?

The Gülen movement’s ultimate goal is to open charter schools in the U.S., to funnel U.S. tax dollars back into the Gülen movement in Turkey. They skim just enough off the public taxpayers from these charter schools so it won’t look suspicious.”

Additionally, our government is providing opportunities to the Gulen movement because the US government has failed to deal with radical Islam. The US government is under the impression that the FGM is the answer for moderate Islam since Gulen pretends to promote dialog among the faiths.

This is a fatal mistake because in Islam, there is no dialog, there is no moderation. The Qur’an states and Muslims believe that every human being needs to convert to Islam sooner or later, otherwise, they all deserve to die. This is not a joke, nor a foolish statement. This is what all kids who receive Qur’an training before they reach the age of 12 believe.

As Gulen Schools slowly but surely move forward in their operations in the US, the main idea is to bring up more graduates of FGM who may in the future become the leaders of the US. Fethullah Gulen’s next school, The Harmony School of Political Science in Austin TX, being built is just a clue to prove my point.

Last year, FBI agents carried out raids to 19 Gulen Charter schools in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio as part of an “ongoing white-collar crime matter.”  The lack of transparency linked to these schools and the Gulen movement should be of major concern to all Americans especially those who have their children in these schools. Of major concern with all Gulen schools is the financial flow of taxpayer dollars and the lack of oversight and transparency.

The way they are using our taxpayer $$, the hierarchy, their pursuit of buying political influence leave enough reason in the minds of reasonable people that these Charter schools need to be closed down. Tax payers are actually being forced without their knowledge to support this Islamic movement within our own borders. Is there something more insidious going on here?

The use of the Islamic practice of taqiyya or “deception” to mask the true nature of the schools has been upheld by Gulen himself. In 1999 Turkish television aired footage of Fethullah Gülen delivering “sermons” which revealed his plan to implement Sharia in America:

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

America – wake up!

CIA Supporting the Islamic Indoctrination of Our Children

“Is it not a crime to take a perfectly healthy, normal human child, train him or her up as an animal, destroy the special intellectual gifts which God gave that human being, so that he or she will live the life of a stunted mental cripple, unable to enjoy a good book, a philosophical conversation, or a sense of what it means to be a child of God?                                               Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld 2002

Our Children Do Become What They Are Taught! This is why it is so important to pay attention to what is being FED to our children and who is behind it.

OBUMMER3A declassified US intelligence report from the Pentagon that was released earlier this year, reveals that Western support for Syria’s rebels aided and abetted the rise of the ‘Islamic State’. The report included high-level confirmation that the US-led strategy in Syria contributed directly to the rise of the Islamic State (IS).

The document shows that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, and that these “supporting powers” desired the emergence of a “Salafist Principality” in Syria to “isolate the Syrian regime.”

We have not been given a choice in this war – Assad or ISIS!

Despite anticipating that Western, Gulf state and Turkish support for the “Syrian opposition” — which included al-Qaeda in Iraq — could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the document provides no indication of any decision to reverse the policy of support to the Syrian rebels.

Among the batch of documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, released earlier this week, a US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document then classified as “secret,” is dated 12th August 2012.

Some outlets have reported the US intelligence community’s internal prediction of the rise of ISIS. Yet none have accurately acknowledged the disturbing details exposing how the West knowingly fostered a sectarian, al-Qaeda-driven rebellion in Syria.

Noting that “the Salafist”, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI al-Qaeda in Iraq are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” the document states that “the West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition,” while Russia, China and Iran “support the Assad regime.”

In a section titled ‘The Future Assumptions of the Crisis,’ the DIA report predicts that while Assad’s regime will survive, retaining control over Syrian territory, the crisis will continue to escalate “into proxy war.”

The document also recommends the creation of “safe havens under international sheltering, similar to what transpired in Libya when Benghazi was chosen as the command center for the temporary government.”

According to Brad Hoff, a former US Marine who served during the early years of the Iraq War and as a 9/11 first responder at the Marine Corps Headquarters Battalion in Quantico from 2000 to 2004, the just released Pentagon report for the first time provides stunning affirmation that: “US intelligence predicted the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), but instead of clearly delineating the group as an enemy, the report envisions the terror group as a US strategic asset.”

In the past several weeks 2,000 fighters, 250 vehicles and hundreds of tons of ammo has been sent from Turkey to Islamic terrorists in Syria giving Britain cause to enter the war. US  Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s warning to the American people about the Obama regimes actions said: “Russia’s installation of their anti-aircraft missile-defense system increases that possibility of — whether it’s intentional or even an accidental event — where one side may shoot down the other side’s plane, and that’s really where the potential is for this devastating nuclear war.”

Russian Death PlaneNow Putin has ordered Russia’s Ilyushin-80 giant command and control aircraft designated for use during nuclear war (otherwise known as the “Doomsday plane”) to prepare for worldwide war operations within a fortnight after military intelligence analysts discovered a “beyond staggering” plot by United States and Turkish government factions to bring down Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan and replace him with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) “designated figurehead” Fethullah Gulen—while at the same time utilizing Islamic State terrorists as “leverage”.

 

As if this information is not enough, another recently released document shows how the CIA is attempting to control the flip of the Turkish government and the Middle East oil while supporting Fethullah Gulen and his Charter schools here in America.

Futah 2The CIA with full knowledge of who and what Gulen is and the purpose of those schools is in supporting their attempt to rule over Turkey while the Gulen goal is to re-instate the Ottoman Empire while indoctrinating American children to build up their numbers.

“CIA’s Graham Fuller: One of the early advocates of using Muslim Brotherhood & Gülen Cemaat to advance US foreign policy.”

WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS AND THE INDOCTRINATION OF OUR CHILDREN!

What is wrong with our parents that they put their children into schools they know nothing about the leaders except it is a “Charter” school. With charters failing at an amazing rate, you would think they would think twice about putting their children in these schools. But, no…..

So what does Putin ordering his Ilyushin-80 giant command and control aircraft designated for use during nuclear war as the “Doomsday plane” to prepare for worldwide war operations have to do with Turkish Gulen Charter schools?

Military intelligence analysts discovered a “beyond staggering” plot by United States and Turkish government factions to bring down Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan and replace him with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) “designated figurehead” Fethullah Gulen—while at the same time utilizing Islamic State terrorists as “leverage”.

This plot to overthrow the current government of Turkey by the CIA was first started in 2008 by the US military-intelligence establishment supported think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) whose board members are a “who’s who” of American military connected individuals, including former US Vice President Richard Cheney, and whose research papers advocated the United States creating what they call a “moderate Muslim” majority in the Middle East to battle Islamic extremists and whose target nation for this action was Turkey.

Aiding the CIA in this goal is of course none other than the leader of the Gulen Charter schools who has been hiding in the Pocono Mountains since 1999 – Fethullah Gulen. The CIA will tell you he came here for “health reasons” but in truth he ran from his government and went into exile when he was accused of attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular regime in order to institute an Islamic state. He obtained his long time visa with the help of former CIA officials.

2015 – Gulen also recently ran afoul again of Turkey’s president, Recip Erdogan. Erdogan accused Gulenists of operating a “parallel state,” and he reportedly lobbied President Obama last month to extradite Gulen back to Turkey. With the current CIA information, we know that is NOT going to happen.

These schools first started appearing the same year Gulen first appeared in 1999 with 17 of the original 165 schools no longer open. Currently, there are 148 Gulen Charter schools operating in the U.S. in 27 different states.  Texas (48) and Ohio (17) have the most schools with California and Florida following with 12 and 11 schools respectfully.

Under the leadership of Sheik Mohammad Fethullah Gülen the goal has always been to re-instate the Ottoman Empire by indoctrinating and recruiting American children, especially high school age, to follow their agenda.

In 2013 there was a split between Turkey’s Sunni Muslim Brotherhood Islamist leader, Premier Erdogan and Fethullah Gülen, after Erdogan banned non-state run preparatory schools. Both have the same goal of restoring the Ottoman Empire.

The FBI who has done several investigations of these schools across the country, has resisted in granting permanent residency to Gulen and according to secret leaked cables, parts of the American government have long believed that Gülen “is a ‘radical Islamist’ whose moderate message cloaks a more sinister and radical agenda.”

After years of investigating him the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, due to his guardian angels in the State Department and the CIA, are prevented from bringing an indictment against him, so they try to kick him out of the US. But once again Gulen’s CIA angels step in and portray Gulen as a scholar, despite the fact that Gulen doesn’t even have a high-school diploma and never went beyond the 5th grade.

Ohio state audits of these schools found thousands of public dollars “illegally expended” to finance the U.S. citizenship process for Turkish employees — some fresh out of college with no classroom experience and broken English. Employees are forced to give back a portion of each paycheck to fund the Foundation. – TY CIA!

AND YET GULEN IS ALLOWED TO OBTAIN MILLIONS IN TAXPAYER $$ WITH THE PRIMARY GOAL OF INDOCTRINATING OUR CHILDREN INTO ISLAM!

This report shows that shortly after the CIA got Gulen into the U.S., President Erdogan established in Turkey the Justice and Development Party in 2001 using a moderate Muslim platform to create change throughout the entire Middle East using part of Gulen’s massive wealth estimated to be between $22-50 billion.

Gulen also owns and operates over three hundred Madrasas around the world, including Pakistan, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. While Gulen’s suspicious and secretive Madrasas have been shut down and or restrained in countries such as Russia, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan, based on these governments’ justified suspicions that his schools had more than just education on their agendas, his rapidly and secretively expanding charter school empire here in the US has gone quite unnoticed and unacknowledged by legislators – however the CIA is well aware of what is happening.

The Gulen schools are one of the largest users of the H-1B visa program bringing in teachers from Turkey claiming America does not have intelligent enough teachers in math and science to teach our students.

Collectively this is called the Gulen “Movement” and a large share of the schools are over seen by their own “for-profit” management company Charter Educational Services & Resources formerly Grace Institute for Educational Research and Resources .

The CIA coming up with this less than brilliant idea, believed they could use Gulen and abuse the religion in America as a cover to advance their design of global control. This dual arrangement was then brokered by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton between Erdogan and Gulen factions in Turkey to split the illegal oil wealth captured by Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria—and which Hillary Clinton has been paid by Gulen, to both her families foundation and presidential campaign, an estimated $1 million.

To help support its diverse interests, Gulen movement supporters in the U.S. have in recent years begun to donate heavily to numerous political campaigns. Gulenists have also paid for hundreds of Turkish “cultural” trips for members of Congress from both sides of the political aisle.

In 2013, Prime Minister Erdogan discovered the CIA-Gulen plot against himself and Turkey which he publically labeled as an “international conspiracy” vowing revenge on Gulen and threatening Francis Ricciardone, the US ambassador to Turkey, with expulsion.

Fearing their “moderate Muslim” project would be destroyed, the CIA then transferred out of Turkey “selected” military and intelligence officers, before Erdogan could arrest them, to Iraq—and where on 8 April 2013 they declared themselves to be the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/Islamic State).

So where does this leave our children with essentially stupid people (CIA) who believed they could use GULEN and they could abuse religion as a cover to advance their design for global control. Gulen has his own agenda and they are not the same.

December 1, 2015 Obama announced they were sending more American troops to Iraq to protect their Islamic State allies – BUT – Iraq’s Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, said they were not welcome and their powerful Shiite militia leaders vowed to kill the moment they set foot on Iraqi soil.

So what can we see as our Muslim president’s goal? We have evidence that over 14K Islamic refugees have vanished from Sweden, but in fact have been transported to the U.S. More than 100 radical Islamic charter schools owned and operated by “King of Madrasas” Gulen in the United States set up by the brainchild of the CIA, a maze of dubious NGO’s—including George Soros’ Center for American Progress NGO which joined with Gulen, and which after this “beyond staggering” plot was discovered this past week caused Putin to label George Soros as threat to national security.

For a clearer picture America, these 14K refugees are to be placed in regions occupied by the Gulen Charter schools. Did our various state governors know of this plot? Why would our legislator’s support this use of our children to Muslim indoctrination?

Do We Protect Our Children Or Sexual Deviates? Part 6

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

Now we know the left loyal Supreme Court agrees with them and have tainted the Constitution with their ruling using the Fourteenth Amendment Section I “no state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property”. Hum? What about our rights?

That’s right – our rights! Atheists, Humanists and Muslims can scream bloody murder about a Christian cross and tell Christians they have to take it down because it is offensive to them. Well —– don’t look at it, drive down another street.

Your mosques are offensive to me because they represent the murder of Christian men, women and children for no reason other than they are Christians. It is offensive to me to see all these mosques being built. I believe for every cross removed there should be a mosque closed. Fair is only fair and it is my country.

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

Outside of the fact a large part of the country’s population believe the president is gay and that he has a man-wife, have you even thought about why the huge push for the GAY issue no matter what form it takes. No I am sure you haven’t because most hetero-sexual individuals unless they themselves are deviates of another sort, don’t publicize what they do in their bedroom and they certainly are not focused on teaching any kind of sex to our young children in school, especially kindergarten. So where is this coming from? In Part 5 of this series I presented parts of the 45 Declared Goals of the Communist Manifesto – let me give them to you again:

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

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

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

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

It is also following the United Nations directive to limit the growth of the world’s population. But then the U.N. is working under the 45 Goals also.

This is just another move as with the race issue to cause divide among Americans. By promoting homosexuality as normal, human beings are turned against one another in regard to their existence and procreation. It is self-destructive because if enough people are encouraged to be gay the growth of the human population will be limited.

One of the truths where the U.N. has been exposed regarding Agenda 21 is in their using abortion and family planning to achieve such ends.

Whatever is happening here, the left knew the homosexual agenda would tear America apart and at the same time reach their goals. Again I would like to state that the teaching of any LGBT or other sexual practices to our minor children in the schools is nothing less than CHILD ABUSE and they are in partnership with Planned Parenthood. The government lies about giving federal money to Planned Parenthood – just because it is in the form of a grant makes it no different.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The eighth grade curriculum says individual identity will be described “as having four parts – biological gender, gender identity (includes transgender), gender role, and sexual orientation (including heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual).” In ninth grade, students will be taught that “sexuality evolves from infancy to old age.” By tenth grade, “Sexual orientation and gender identity terms will be discussed with focus on appreciation for individual differences.”

This should frighten the heck out of parents. School districts around the country are so intent on teaching about homosexuality except it is not specifically mandated by legislatures. At best they allowing societal norms to trump biology and at worse they are seeking to destroy the family through the teaching of lies.

As of February, 2015 you can go here to find the “State Policies on Sex Education in Schools” and it certainly does not match what is being taught. Most states do currently allow for parents to “Opt Out” their children from sex Ed.

So where is this coming from? The United Nations believes that by emphasizing rights and gender issues, these programs help reduce gender-based violence and bullying, promote safe schools, empower young people to advocate for their own rights, and advance gender equality.

GLSEN

GLSEN

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

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

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

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

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

Now they are silent.

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

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

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

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

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

I have 2 problems with this event:

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

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

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

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

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

URGENT ACTION NEEDED

George Carlin

 URGENT ACTION NEEDED

Progressive US Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) knows that this time the public will not be so easily fooled by his lies as we have been in the past.  He has lied to us for years and he is lying to us about NCLB/ESEA Reauthorization.  We have already had experts reading and analyzing this bill and the more they dig the worse it gets.   We ARE being deceived AGAIN.  

PLEASE ALSO GO TO THIS LINK:  http://www.ncee.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Executive-Summary.pdf  – THIS DOCUMENT WAS WRITTEN IN 1992 BY MARC TUCKER AND THE NCEE AND IS TITLED “TOUGH CHOICES FOR TOUGH TIMES”.  Starting at their page 8 begin to read and as you get to page 9 you will begin to understand their total laid out plans for our traditional public schools, charter schools, vouchers, school-to-work and how the assessments were to work along with grading and everything starting with what they intend to do with our teachers. This document is a jewel. Now you will also understand why the government is supporting Teach for America.

Do not try to put it on your web site as it will give you a copy-right message.  You can save it to your computer, read it and print it out. This is one of the most important documents I have found spelling out their devious plan to ruin our children and slide into their New World Order. 

Here are just a few of the issues that have been uncovered hidden in this massive ESEA bill:

1.  Title 1 funding will be tied to compliance with Common Core State Standards (they should be called Common Core Federal Standards but I digress)  Comply or else!! 

In 2010 the US Dept. of Education created a document called “A BLUEPRINT FOR REFORM”  In this document on Page 10 it clearly states that by 2015 the administration will attach Title 1 funding with compliance to common college and career standards (Common Core or Common Core aligned-which is CC with a new name and a few changes).  Now do you see why Alexander MUST get this passed ASAP?????

2.  Every child will be considered Title 1 and required remediation if they do not perform to the expected outcomes of Common Core.

3. 60-70 pages just on Charter Schools

4.  Title 1 money to follow the child – THIS WILL be the destruction of private schools, elected school boards and traditional public schools not to mention what it will do to property taxes.  Private schools will be forced to take these vouchers or go belly up.  This means they will also be forced to take Common Core.  So why would a parent pay more to send a child to private school if the child will get the same education for half the cost?  So even if they do take the vouchers they will go belly up. This is a no win for private and religious schools.  What happens to the tax structure and the local public school when kids start taking their money to other districts, counties or states?  This action alone WILL destroy private schools, traditional public schools leaving Charters the only CHOICE.  Is Obama’s CHOICE the CHOICE you bargained for when you supported Charter Schools?  We tried to warn legislators and parents about the real agenda with Charters but they wouldn’t listen and many are still not listening.  Charters WILL eliminate elected representation and they WILL end up being the ONLY CHOICE.  That people is not choice.  That will privatize education and make many riche people even richer.  The good mom and pop Charter your children go to now will be swallowed up by the big boys.  And when you complain who will you complain to??  The goal is to remove parents from the education of their children and Charters and Vouchers is exactly how it will happen.

5. We must investigate the  State longitudinal data systems (funded by NCES) tracking individuals with a unique national ID and evaluating ALL TITLE I CHILDREN ( that’s ALL children under this legislation.) Did you ever wonder why ALL children are eligible for free lunch now.  It is because all children will be considered Title 1 and at risk.  They are basically redefining the meaning of EDUCATION.

6. We must investigate the entire TITLE I BLANKET of psychological manipulation of redefining a disability under IDEA and the rehabilitation Act which allows a disability to have interventions….not meeting social and emotional outcomes in Common Core. We can prove this through the contracts revealed in ESEA Flex Waiver. (Interpersonal Skills)

7.  In Dec. 2011 President Obama issued an EO that gutted FERPA protection of our children’s data.  MASSIVE Amounts of data will be collected.  All data can and will be shared and that includes biometric data without parental knowledge or consent.  This EO will be made permanent law in the NCLB/ESEA reauthorization.
If you need more convincing that we are being deceived again please contact me and I will provide enough proof to make your head spin. THIS ISOBAMA’S EQUITY PLAN.We are told by DC that Alexander is pushing this through so fast they don’t know which way is left.  And why is he pushing it through so fast?  Remember the Blueprint for Reform……read it.  NCLB/ESEA expired in 2007 but NOW it MUST be slammed in.  You betcha.  Because the citizens in America are pushing back and getting legislators to push back on the federal take over (which Alexander has supported and pushed since the later 80’s)  So they have to act fast before we “read the bill to find out what’s in the bill”  Well they underestimated us.  We are reading the bill and we are finding it must be REPEALED/SUNSETTED not REAUTHORIZED.  DO NOT LET THEM SOFT SHOE YOU because they WILL try.  The majority of them have not even read the reauthorization.If you do nothing else to save our children I am truly begging you to share this with EVERYONE you know and call your US Representative and your 2 US Senators (in TN that includes Alexander).  Let them know we want ESEA/NCLB to be SUNSETTED or outright repealed NOT reauthorized.  Please feel free to provide any feedback you get after you make your calls.  PLEASE start calling.  Leave a message.  If the line is busy keep calling until you get through.    Also send an email to your US Rep. and your 2 US Senators.  We MUST hit them hard.  If you have conservative media contacts, if you belong to a group, if you have friends, neighbors, relatives.  PLEASE get this out to EVERYONE.  Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest……….this issue is more important than any issue we will face and we need to give it as much push as we did with so many issues in the past.   They do respond to phone calls and emails but they must come in hundreds to each Representative and Senator!!!

A STEP CLOSER to HITLER TYPE NATIONALIZED EDUCATION

As I discover or I am given leads to information that is rotten for America, especially when it comes to the education of our children, I can’t help but wonder how much more is out there waiting for the “ruination train” to pull into the station.

Change Agent ManToday we have Progressivism/Socialism being taught by teachers from kindergarten through college which in actuality is not teaching but indoctrination. It has been happening for years, but now the politicians and corporate giants are making BIG money from it. You will even see some cooperation between the 2 parties in relationship to this money pot called education.

Remember, the Republican Party came out with “no support” for the Common Core Standards but did NOTHING to stall, stop or defund anything that was linked to it.

Hitler would be proud of what has happened in America. The federal government, the unions and teaching colleges have done a number on education in America when you compare it to what he did with Hitler’s Youth. We aren’t there yet, but we certainly are close.

Hitlers children 2“From a sociological point of view, education is a process by which and through behavior changes are brought about in the individual in relation to the group in which he lives and comes into contact”. Looking at Nazi education through this sociological framework, one is better able to understand not only how Hitler rose to power, but how the sweeping changes he made to the educational system allowed for the systematic indoctrination of a nation.

Hitler’s system of education believed that a person who was less educated, but more physically healthy was of more value to the movement than someone who was intellectually strong but physically weak. They are called bullies! This rugged and mindless type of individual was considered to be the ideal candidate to forge into a tool for conquest and domination. To a young child, this sounds like a wonderful, controlling (on their part) way of life.

Brown Shirts

Brown Shirts are Blue(Remember, Obama has his own trained “BROWN shirts”). The shirts may not always be brown, but the message is there. Through the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), we have been given what Obama called for during his candidacy, a civilian homegrown army. What role are the children to play in this? These are not high school or college graduates but, those who have spent most of their lives playing kill games and watching kill & horror movies feeling no attachment to the end results. Do you really think they will hesitate to take a gun to their neighbors especially when they are young (16-24), no feelings, paid and made to feel important. Most of them are also very immature.

And the Federal government wants to talk about gun control? What about putting guns in the hands of these children to be used against their fellow Americans? They don’t want to arm teachers but will older students! Large populations of our children are so messed up they don’t know their right hand from their left. They certainly cannot make change in a store or answer a direct question in detail unless you give them multiple choice answers.

In Hitler’s schools intellectual development was not a priority. The curriculum privileged physical strength and robot-like obedience to Nazi ideologies was the priority. Academic studies were dominated by Nazi themes of racial struggle and German pride. Graduates would be the brutally efficient leaders of this new order.

Hitler understood that the most efficient way to unify Germany was through a new educational regime controlled by his new “government”. This system was based in a kind of multi-pronged fundamental revisionism.

Our politicians might begin to tread lightly since part of this new organizational movement eliminated all political parties and created a regime which had no political party, only underlings of Hitler’s choosing and a government which was not a government but a form of religion with Hitler as its God and the Nazi ideology as its Gospel.

Sounds like the groundwork for a New World Order.

Socialist, advocate of cradle to grave socialism, control freak and advocate of local control of education, Marc Tucker, has tried to destroy the education system in this country for years. He wrote the letter to Hillary laying out the groundwork for Bill Clinton’s School-to-Work Act and used an outcome-based education experiment around the country in the 80’s and 90’s which on every occasion failed miserably leaving their education systems in shambles. Tucker once said, “The United States will have to largely abandon the beloved emblem of American education: local control.”

Marc S TuckerMarc Tucker has posted several articles on the “Core Knowledge” curriculum blog endorsing the Common Core and Charter schools. My warning to some of you has been to repeatedly warn you about the use of Core Knowledge curriculum as a means of stating a charter school is teaching “Classical” education. How can they be teaching classical education if they are using Common Core aligned curriculums?

Bill Korach and Dr. Jerry Merckel of Florida have been traveling all over pushing Classical Charter schools especially Great Heart and those from the Barney Group of Hillsdale College. Both schools are using Core Knowledge and touting they are teaching “classical” education.

Merckel was a Univ. of Florida professor in the Engineering Dept. and was teaching a class on Venture Studies, conservative and a tea party supporter. He along with Bill Korach of Florida (Report Card) are laying out their new program that has been formed to help local groups form Classical Charter Schools in their community. Classical education is a good thing, but when you are basing your support on Charter School Management Companies using Core Knowledge it certainly is not.

Again, Charlotte Iserbyt, long time researcher and I will remind you “charters can and do operate outside of local control, citizen oversight, voter accountability, and parental scrutiny. Read here of another Charter school horror. A must read for all!

AlexanderCurrently we have Senator Lamar Alexander, who has forever, pushed for national control of our children through education, and is pushing through a new bill which is a Re-authorization of the ESEA. Understand, it is being amended, not presented as an amendment. This bill is on the fast track and is being scheduled to come out for a vote by the end of March. John Kline, chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee stated last week he plans to have that bill on the House floor by the end of March.

Reminding you that Alexander is very pro charter schools and cradle to grave 24/7 education stated last year he would propose sweeping VOUCHER legislation which could allow families to use their share of the federal funding – about $2,100 per student – for private school tuition, and tutoring, extra-curricular enrichment.

His plan is to give 11,000,000 students in poverty (again low-income) a voucher to go to “whatever accredited institution they want”. The $24B package only gives $2,100 per student. Of course the rest of the tuition will come from the “School District of Record” meaning about $100 Billion will “follow the child”. Don’t these legislators ever think maybe a middle class kid would like to go to whatever school they want to?

A Hand UpYou all know how I feel about the use of (low-income) strategies in the progressive move of our education system. I have found the attitude and actions of a “hand up” rather than a “hand out” goes further in building a child’s self-confidence, self-pride and motivation rather than keeping them in the “you can’t do it hole”

No the middle class parents get to work and pay for all the handouts!

Bottom line: the Alexander plan will destroy public education in the U.S.

Do not be fooled again – this is NOT a conservative plan, but a radical one. It will spend public dollars to backwoods churches, and ambitious entrepreneurs.

NO HIGH PERFORMING NATION IN THE WORLD HAS VOUCHERS.

Is there party collusion going on here? It can’t be true that some of the Republicans would be showing their Progressive side and be agreeing with Arne Duncan on anything. But they are!

Duncan is calling for repealing and replacing the No Child Left Behind federal education law and doing a significant rewrite of the federal education law, the most dramatic in 14 years. And I am sure you have figured out that if Duncan is in on this, Obama intends to sign it which certainly tells you this is NOT GOOD!

This past Monday, Duncan laid out his “principles” for rewriting the education law and insisted he would still have within that law the federal mandate that all students be tested in math and reading every year from third through eighth grade. The NCLB bill has been due for re-authorization since 2007.

You need to seriously question why this is such a priority for Alexander and why the groundwork to have the legislation passed through so quickly. With a new Republican controlled Senate and Duncan participation, it is sure to be put through.

Duncan has previously said that the law must be replaced, that it has “significant flaws,” that it’s “fundamentally broken” and that it has served as a “barrier to reform.” In August 2013, he said the law “is outmoded and constrains state and district efforts for innovation and reform.”

Strange how certain laws are great at times and not so good at others. Duncan and Obama found the NCLB to be very handy in basically blackmailing the states into applying for the waivers and RTTT grants and the proliferation of the Common Core standards.

Vouchers3Watch for vouchers to be in the bill since I have tried to explain to you to you on numerous occasions Charters/Choice/Vouchers are the leading way to take parents out of the overseeing of their children’s education. The only place parents have any control is in traditional public schools BECAUSE of the election of their school boards. In a private or charter school the only say you have if unhappy is to remove your child to another school.

Please take the time to read Anita Hoge’s analysis of this re-authorization as of yesterday.

You can be sure with Obama insisting the testing remain we are going to see more repeats under Common Core of the “cheating” scandals in Atlanta, D.C. and other districts around the country. When your well-being is being based on testing of JUNK curriculum and standards, it leaves the system wide open to cheating to make themselves look good.

Some of the remaining controversy inside the NCLB legislation is the “when and how” to testing and if the law supports good teaching. The encroachment of “Teach for America” within the brick and mortar of our schools is certainly not helping with any higher level of education especially under the indoctrination of the Common Core Standards. You can also bet they will use the wording “low-income children” as this is where they always claim they need to put the money, but all the money that has been used for “low-income” programs has not advanced anything especially the grades.

As Anita Hoge said, “This bill is pretty inclusive and has most of the agenda which was in both older bills HR 5 and SB 1094. This bill includes Title I money that will follow the child; expansion of charter schools, federal choice for public and private schools, Response to Intervention, Positive Behavior Intervention and supports, specialized student support, are all of the mental health agenda. It continues the data collection through IES (Institute of Education Sciences) which is really the National Center for Education Statistics longitudinal data collection, puts FERPA into federal law. On and on. At least we now know what is in it”.

Boot StrapsHold onto your boot straps as the education fight against Common Core was only the beginning. Trojan Horse that it is, it has distracted parents all over the country from everything else going on in the education of our children. Blogs have quieted down and research has come to a halt for the most part.

When you wage war on the public schools and our children, you’re attacking the mortar that holds the community together. You’re not a conservative; you’re a vandal and an elected or corporate crook.

CHARTER SCHOOL GRAVY TRAIN and TOTAL RUINATION OF AMERICAN EDUCATION Part 1

Those of you who read my postings know I am trying to educate you on the dangers of Charter/Choice/Vouchers. Outside of it being the road to a Federal takeover of education, it is a proverbial “money tree” and they are using your children as “human collateral.” In this posting I have used Florida Charter School Management companies because it is where I live. My suggestion is that you check what is happening with the Charter schools in your state.

Actually some of these charter school management companies do operate in multiple states.

One warm Thursday in July, dozens upon dozens of bankers, hedge fund types and private equity investors gathered in New York to hear about the latest and greatest opportunities to collect a cut of your property taxes. Of course, the promotional material for the Capital Roundtable’s conference on “private equity investing in for-profit education companies” didn’t put it in such crass terms, but that’s what was going on.

Charter schools are booming with the push of the federal and state governments. “There are now more than 6,400 in the United States, up from 2,500 a decade ago, educating a record 2.5 million children,” according to Reuters.

Charter PrivaiCharters have a limited admissions policy, and the applications can be as complex as those at private schools. But parents don’t pay tuition and support comes directly from the school district in which the charter is located. This is the same $$ allotted to each child attending a regular public school only at a lessor percentage. They are also lucrative, attracting players like the specialty real estate investment trust EPR Properties(EPR). Charter schools are in the firm’s $3 billion portfolio along with retail space and movie megaplexes.

Charter schools are frequently a way for politicians to reward their cronies. In Ohio, two firms operate 9% of the state’s charter schools and are collecting 38% of the state’s charter school funding increase this year. The operators of both firms donate generously to elect Republicans.

The Arizona Republic found that charters “bought a variety of goods and services from the companies of board members or administrators, including textbooks, air conditioning repairs and transportation services.” Most charters were exempt from a requirement to seek competitive bids on contracts over $5,000.

In Florida, the for-profit school industry flooded legislative candidates with $1.8 million in donations last year. “Most of the money,” reports The Miami Herald, “went to Republicans, whose support of charter schools, vouchers, online education and private colleges has put public education dollars in private-sector pockets.”

Florida also created a major piece of legislation protecting public-private partnerships involved in education and other financial ventures. They also have legislators who vote on charter school legislation while owning or receiving financial gains from charter schools. Legislators in Florida are allowed to sit on Jeb Bush’s foundation (FEE) which includes the state’s commissioner of education. The money flows heavy in Florida.

Don’t misunderstand me – there are other state legislators, state superintendents and commissioners of education from several states along with Arne Duncan, David Coleman, Condoleezza Rice, and Richard N. Haass (Pres. CFR) who are “reformers” on the Jeb Bush Foundation, not just Florida. No matter where they are from you cannot “serve more than one master without hating one and loving the other or holding to one and despising the other”.

Among the big donors: the private equity firm Apollo Group, the outfit behind the for-profit University of Phoenix, which has experimented with online high schools. Apollo dropped $95,000 on Florida candidates and committees.

Lest you get the idea charter schools are a “Republican” thing, they are also favored by big-city Democrats. When 23 public schools closed for good in Philadelphia — about 10% of the total — they were replaced by charters. Charters have a history in Washington, D.C., going back to 1996 and they also have a strong home in Chicago.

They were favored by Arne Duncan when he ran the Chicago Public Schools. In 2009, Duncan rolled out the Obama administration’s “Race to the Top” initiative, doling out $4.4 billion in federal money to the states — but only to those states that lifted their caps on the number of charter schools and agreed to play the Common Core Standards game.

After Katrina, New Orleans went totally off the grid opting to make all their schools Charter schools. Is anyone really looking at these schools as to what curriculum they are using? Who is minding the store? New Orleans is riddled with scandals yet they claim their hands are clean.

A recent case study by the Harvard Business School examined the charter school reform efforts in New Orleans. The district is now composed of 70 Recovery School District (RSD) schools managed by the state (including 37 RSD charter schools) and 16 schools managed by the local Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) (including 12 OPSB charter schools). RSD Schools are a result of Act 9 of the Louisiana State Legislature passed in 2003 to manage under-performing schools throughout the state.

Why are they going CHARTER when they too must be aligned to the Common Core Standards? Is it because they have lenient legislation guiding them or maybe it’s as simple as they have fallen for the lies regarding Charter schools because the powers to be certainly do not make public the information on Charter school closures when regular public schools (RPS) are not being closed.

Sadly, they have been accused of manipulating the data and that they are using a different, lower standard of measuring their achievements to make more schools look better. It seems to be making an impact on the quality of education in New Orleans but then there is nothing to compare them to. This reminds me of “suffer the little children.”

Other states have also lowered their standard of measuring their achievements since their “CCS” is not working.

In 2012, the Federal government showed how they support the Charter school system announcing the FY2012 grant competition for the Replication and Expansion of High Quality Charter Schools. I don’t know about your state, but Florida gives really big chunks of grant monies to starting Charter schools – and if they fail – your tax dollars just got flushed down the toilet.

Under the FY2012 appropriations law, Pub. L. No. 112-74, Division F, Title III, the Secretary is authorized to reserve up to $55 million for the replication and expansion of successful charter models.

A quick perusal of the Notice raises at least two questions: (1) If pre-existing successful models are to be replicated, why has the Department included six competitive preference priorities that may necessitate applicants changing their models to be in the running for a grant? (2) Given the grants are to replicate successful models, why give novice applicants extra points? Why not put everyone on equal footing in the competition?

In 2011, Congress voted overwhelmingly (365-54) to approve H.R. 2218, the Empowering Parents Through Quality Charter Schools Act. The bill is the first of a handful of Ed and Workforce Committee measures that reauthorize parts of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Among other things, the legislation makes a number of improvements to the federal charter program to facilitate the replication of greater numbers of high quality charter schools. The legislation revamps the current charter schools’ discretionary grant program, among other things, to give priority to states that do not cap the numbers of charter schools.

Always remember the purpose of the support by politicians who want nationalized education is the fact Charter schools have “UNELECTED SCHOOL BOARDS and “LENIENT LEGISLATION” which is ‘TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.” To better understand what is truly happening, each parent should read their state’s statutes regarding all parts of Charter school implementation, financial support, oversight and certification of the schools and teachers.

Again I remind you, if you are thinking of moving your child from a RPS to a public Charter school, they are both using Common Core curriculums and following the Common Core State Standards where you live.

Ask yourself, “why the lenient legislation for Charter schools”?

The for-profit Charter School management companies are providing everything from back office operations including payroll, contracting with vendors for food services, textbook, etc., to hiring principals and teachers and curriculum control at an enormous cost. So what has been sold to parents and children as local public education innovation are actually national charter-chains, the “Waltmartization” of public education. The Charter schools pay huge management fees to these for-profit businesses.

Over three-quarters of all charter school students are enrolled in a “charter chain school” in the United States. The top four charter operators in Florida for 2013-2014 were:

AcademicaAcademica (100) – This management company is owned by Fernando Zulueta. To put the frosting on the “cupcake”, Erik Fresen, FL. legislator is also the brother-in-law of Zulueta. He also serves on the board of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools along with Jeb Bush, Jr. Fresen not only has financial connections to the charter operator through his architectural firm, but also chairs the FL House Education Appropriations Subcommittee. Previously, Fresen worked as a lobbyist for Academica in the state. Fresen isn’t the only Florida legislator with ties to the company.

State Senator Anitere Flores is the CEO of Doral College, a private college affiliated with a charter school run by Academica. Before running again in 2012, she had stated if she was offered this position she would not run – she did anyway.

The company’s owners carry additional favor through campaign donations. In a 2011 investigation, the Miami Herald noted: State election records show Academica’s owners, Fernando and Ignacio Zulueta, have steered $150,000 in campaign donations to Tallahassee lawmakers and political committees through real-estate companies they have controlled since 2007. The records also show the Zulueta family has donated an additional $75,000 in the past five years, and Academica executives and school contractors donated another $54,000. During that time, the Legislature relaxed rules and passed lenient legislation, some of which was presented and pushed by Fresen. Fresen has also had ethics charges filed against him for his actions in the legislature, but they have always been dismissed.

How can a legislator support and vote on Charter school legislation, make financial gains from a Charter school and sit on the pro-Charter Foundation (FEE) of Jeb Bush’s and be impartial and have the children’s futures at the fore front of their decision making?

Jonnnathan HageCharter Schools USA (CSUSA) – They had the honor last year of having their CEO Jonathan Hage named Florida’s “Man of the Year”. I guess Florida had no one else who could fill those shoes. Before forming this for-profit charter school management company, Hage was the research director for Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Florida’s Future and also served on Governor Rick Scott’s education transition team. Tina Bennett, wife of former Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett, also works for the company.

Emails obtained through a public records request revealed that Charter Schools USA is one of the many sponsors of the Chiefs for Change, a project of Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education (FEE) and Hage is also considered one of Bush’s “Reformers.”

For a test, I looked up one of their Charter Schools in Orange Cnty, FL which is a K-8 school. Checking their 2014 budget and taking what they state would be spent for Professional and Vendor services averaged out to give $1,283.93 less per student. They receive $6077.00 for each of the 924 students. They budgeted to spend $42,400 for advertising; $353,512.00 for CSUSA Management fees; $15K for Accounting Services; $161,445.00 Custodial Services; $255,232.00 Contracted Food Service to name a few. This school received an F last year and is still open. Why is that? I could find no where on their website the name of the Principal or how many teachers they have.

Just what do you get for the $353,512 management fees?

Charter School Associates – They currently have 17 schools in Florida and it is owned and operated by Mike and Estelle Strader. As Executive Director of the Center for Education Entrepreneurs, Mike organized Florida’s first state-wide workshop to assist first year operators (Survival Training for Charter Operators) and developed the first “How-To” guide for Florida charter developers (The Florida Charter School Planning Guide).He has presented at national and state conferences including the National Association of Educators in Private Practice, The National Charter School Conference and the Florida Charter School Conference.

They boast the use of a Math curriculum called Mathletics and it is Common Core aligned.

Jason Bryant ImagineImagine Schools – A for-profit Charter School Management Co., Imagine also owns a for-profit real estate development company (Schoolhouse Finance) and a non-profit management company (Imagine Schools Non-Profit). In some places, Imagine run schools dedicate nearly half their operating expenses to rent. The high rent rates not only divert resources from the classroom, the costs pushing some Imagine schools into debt, and sometimes that debt is owed to Imagine’s for-profit arm. (Further criticism)

Jason Bryant, their CEO and President prior to joining Imagine in 2005, worked at AES Corporation. His tenure at AES included operations oversight of multiple power plants in California, leading development efforts in Kazakhstan, and overseeing operations in Brazil and Spain as commercial and financial director. Sounds like a great background for overseeing the education of children. Not!

More!

These are not the small, locally run experimental schools envisioned by the original legislation as told to voters.

The threat of vouchers, wavering support for public education, and bipartisan support for charters has led some unions to start charters themselves. Several AFT chapters, such as those in Houston and Dallas, have themselves started charters. The National Education Association has allocated $1.5 million to help members start charter schools. Proponents claim that charters offer teachers a measure of empowerment, employee ownership, and governance that might be enhanced by union assistance.

The White House on both sides of the political realm has had their fingers in this also. You must ask yourself why are they making our schools i.e., our children’s education, part of the political and business world?

Charter school implementation was one of the main objectives of former President George H. W. Bush. Since that time it seems to have been a “family” affair.

Former President Bill Clinton saw charter schools, with their emphasis on autonomy and accountability, as a workable political compromise and an alternative to vouchers

Others, such as former President George W. Bush, saw charter schools as a way to improve schools without antagonizing the teachers’ union. Bush made charter schools a major part of his No Child Left Behind Act. Despite endorsements, a recent report by the AFT has shown charter schools not faring as well as public schools on state administered standardized testing.

With Jeb Bush deeply in bed with Bill Gates and on a full-time move for Charter schools and Vouchers/Tax Credits for Private and Parochial schools one must wonder what their alternative motives are? Get rich? Power? Control? It certainly is not because they care about our children and their receiving a good education.

Jeb Bush’s web of deceit and deception involves not just the money men, but legislators, state superintendents/commissioners of education, corporate giants and Democrats such as Obama, Arne Duncan, David Coleman and the President of the CFR Haas.

Isn’t it strange how close those on both sides of the fence relate to each other and the same agenda’s? Bill Clinton who looks on G.H.W. Bush as a father figure!

Quick note: Jeb Bush has removed his tab on his web site that formerly named all the Reformers who were both R’s and D’s sitting on his Foundation – backers of the Bush education agenda and most involved in some way with education. Hum! Maybe he thinks we don’t remember who they were.

More than one opponent to Charter schools have examined the competing claims of success and suggest that most students in charter schools perform the same or worse than their traditional public school counterparts on standardized tests.

FLORIDA’s SCHOOL BOARD TREACHERY! How Is Yours? Part 1

It is becoming increasingly clear that the only preservation for the children of Florida and their futures is to change how things are done in Florida. We must return the position of Commissioner of Education to an elected position; change the positions on the State School Board to an elected position or both.

EthicsThe cronyism in Tallahassee has reached the highest levels it has ever been. The ethics bill last year was a smoke screen to fool us as an effort on their part to be good boys and girls. However the legislation passed in no way touched the real problems in that city and our government.

Appointing people to positions that hold the power such as the Commissioner and State School Board leaves parents out of the equation in regard to education and makes them answerable to whom?  Each other and a governor who has in recent months shown us he cares less about listening to parents concerns in regard to their children’s education and it is more important to him to have dinner with Jeb Bush.

Our past 2 governors,  Bush and Crist along with Rick Scott since the changes in the Florida Constitution in 2003 have given us 5 Commissioners of Education who are currently sitting on Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education; John L. Winn, Eric J. Smith, Gerard Robinson, Tony Bennett and now Pam Stewart. Has Jeb Bush been Florida’s perpetual governor?

Never forget it was George H.W. Bush who picked up the idle gauntlet of Education from Johnson and created the Charter school system which has been the “baby” of the Bush family ever since. Here again, no education experience as is the case with most politicians meddling in the future lives of our children.

Given the timing of the change to the Constitution (2003), the following commissioners (John Winn & Eric Smith) were given a seat on Jeb Bush’s Foundation which of course is what Bush did after leaving the governor’s office – form his foundation. Do you see a little long range plan laid out here?

All of these people support the trash education of the Common Core Standards and the taxation without representation of the Charter/Choice/Voucher scheme along with the unelected school boards of the Charter schools removing the parental input into the equation. They don’t want you to know about the failures of the charter schools – much larger by percentage than traditional public schools.

The focus here is to make the Charter School Management (CSM) companies rich and the heck with what our kids learn! CSM’s fill coffers!

I want to give you the background on those dictating the futures of our children. You got a good look into the disrespect and arrogance of the SBOE Chairman Chartrand this past Tuesday. We saw the board members talking to each other, messing with their iPads or phones, conversing with the administrative assistant through the whole time while over 95 taxpayers explained their point of views in regard to Common Core and education in general.

They didn’t even have the decency to have a conversation amongst themselves in regard to any of the issues brought up by the speakers before taking their vote. The 2 new board members (and there is history there also) spoke basically in favor of the vote that was about to take place with Tuck (new kid on the block) even stating we have to move into the 21st Century.

Florida State School Board:

ChartrandGary Chartrand came to the board in 2011 and of course is now serving as its chairman. His business background is pretty impressive as being one of those individuals who sits on every board you can think of. It is always supposed to make your resume look better. (jaxkidsmatter.blogspot.com/ /2013/08/gary-chartrand-floridas-most.html) Other than the KIPP Charter school thing I can’t find any reason for Scott to appoint him to the board.

Know that no matter how impressive Chartrand’s bio is, it is what it doesn’t say that is important. He has absolutely no background in education except for being involved in bringing Kipp Charter schools and Teach for America (TFA) teachers to Jacksonville. He is a lot like Al Gore – he knows not of what he speaks”. And his actions are getting rather loud.

Not a classroom, not a school office, not even a school janitor – he has no qualifications to sit on the FL. State Board of Education.  It is a little bit like asking a Construction Engineer to teach a Home Ec class (do they still have those?). Or maybe a professional chef to build a bridge!

Under Chartrand’ s direction the board’s 3 decisions in regard to a choice for the states “Unelected” Commissioner of Education have been less than stellar and it would lead those who follow these things to ask who was really behind these choices. Remembering our last five (5) including our present commissioner are also “reformer’s – (formerly chief’s for change) on Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education.  Maybe they just wanted to make sure they had someone who would tow the line.

The main problem here is these choices rather than being individuals interested in actually improving our children’s education, the choice of commissioners were those whose main goal was to privatize our education instead. (Charter Schools).

KIPP 2Chartrand has been applauded for the KIPP Charter schools in Jacksonville – but of course he has given his allegiance to Charter schools. The state’s agenda is charter schools; however his results shown here so far are not any better than his performance as the SSBOE chairman. Chartrand, who helped raise $9 million to bring a KIPP elementary school to Jacksonville, also donated $1 million toward the network’s elementary school in the same city.

KIPP Impact Middle School is of course planted in a “low-income” area which to this writer gives them an out excuse for failure which is where a good amount of charter schools put themselves, low-income areas, especially KIPP schools. 98% of the students are minority and 89% are Title I students both of which bring in extra funds for the school. Started in 2010, their first year grade was an F with less than 30% achieving the FCAT of 25% or less in reading and for math 67% reached the level of 25% or less. Not good.

When Commissioner Robinson made his famous trip to Jax to look into the start-up of another KIPP school (I wonder what his interest was?), he was asked by a reported if he was going to take into consideration the existing Kipp school had received an F, he responded, “we don’t use that as the criteria for allowing new schools to open”.

Wow!  Given the Florida State School Board allows D and F Charter schools (of which there are many more than traditional public schools) stay open for far longer than they should, one does have to ask “What are they doing”?

The mission statement for KIPP Jacksonville Schools is to prepare our students with the academic and character skills necessary to succeed in high school, college and the competitive world beyond.  Not at this rate!

Something else I discovered while doing this posting. Kipp and Charter Schools USA send their teachers to what is called the Clarion Council For Educational Greatness in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.  Though not clear, it looks like it is owned by Charter Schools USA and when you go to the web site and try to see what the training is – you have to have a “Clarion Training” password. Secrets, always secrets.

KIPPS’s Accountability report for the 2010-2011 school year – AFRICAN-AMERICAN, ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED KIPP IMPACT MIDDLE SCHOOL has not met federal adequate yearly progress under No Child Left Behind because it needs improvement in one or more areas.  Because this is a Title I school, your student may be eligible for school choice options under No Child Left Behind.

Charter schools are School Choice so where do these students go if the school were to remain a failure. In fairness I admit they garnered a C the following year after the change to the grading process – no figures for the 2012-2013 year. But then the full accountability figures have not been posted on the Florida DOE web site since 2010 – 2011 school year. HUM!

More on Kipp Jacksonville Schools according to the 2012-13 FL Charter School Accountability Report:

Kipp Imagine:  4 of the 8 teachers are Teach For America teachers; 6 of the 8 teachers are not certified but are being paid at the same rate as the certified with benefits; average salary with benefits $48,125; 86.66% rated NOT Highly Qualified; 82.35% Teaching out of their field; in the hole financially at the end of the year $14, 000+ and have a large note due to Kipp,Inc.

Kipp Voice:  8 of the 12 teachers Are Teach For America teachers; only 1 is NOT certified; 100% of the teachers are teaching out of their field; their salaries are equivalent to those of Imagine.

Both schools are NOT certified and rent their building from McDuff Qalicb, Inc. of Jax and they are in a relationship with Kipp, Inc. but how is not clear. Both schools hold board meetings once a quarter and at one of the recent meetings Gary Chartrand asked Ashley Ferguson who is listed as the principal of both schools about her views on the Common Core vs. Florida State standards. There was general discussion about this.  She is also a TFA girl!

It’s too bad that Chartrand couldn’t find it in his heart to leave his ego at the door of the board room but then we tin-hatter’s all know that most of the people we are dealing with today have enormous ego’s.

The saddest part of this “Charter School Scam” is with a country like ours they could have made our children’s education the best in the world. However, they are more interested in privatizing education and making it a big business for pay back donations and at the same time “dumbing the children down” into mental idiots for the “New World Order.

The 2013-2014 school found Florida with 75 new Charter school but 26 existing ones had closed. They lie to you because the school closers in this country are not “regular” public schools but “charter” schools. New Orleans who chose after Katrina to turn all their schools into charter schools and is the only place in the state with charter schools has 18 charter schools and 6 closed.

What about the children and their trying to get an education at the same time as being bounced around from school to school. Why are we as parents not INSISTING we stop this madness?
