Consequences

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I was recently a guest of the Exceptional Conservative Network’s TV show. During that broadcast, audio technical difficulties prevented my message from being heard, or so I’m told.

****This article is a written summary my notes for the interview.**

Thanks:

I’d like to thank all of you who contacted the President to Veto HR 4174 (Foundations in Evidence Based Policymaking Act). For whatever reasons, our voices, though many, were ignored.

thank-you-festive

 

Consequences:

Below is a screen shot of consequences we now face, due to the signing into law HR 4174 (FEPA) has in store for We the People:

fepawarn
HOW will FEPA immediately or chillingly effect us as Americans?
1) This might shock you, but all our civil rights (how we are treated) are assigned by our government. All our civil liberties (our freedoms) are also assigned by the government.

In the Declaration of Independence we were guaranteed the right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness as WE chose. FEPA removes OUR guarantee to live our lives as WE choose. It certainly removes all liberty, as well as freedom. It certainly will impact how we are treated. (Source)

1a) How does FEPA cause this? Life-long tracking of your life, your attitudes, values, beliefs, how much income your family makes, where you live, do you own a gun, do you beat your family, do you drink or smoke? Do you go to church?
Think of it this way Warriors, whatever data snooping the Patriot Act created on every American (thus helping gut FERPA, Family Education Rights to Privacy Act, as well as the SLDS and WQDI (Student Longitudinal Data System/Workforce Quality Initiative, respectively); FEPA makes it look like sissy stuff.

Why? The goal in the shift to erode America as the ‘land of the free/home of the brave’, has long been in place. It’s not been about our choice in life, especially for our students of all ages, for quite some time. The reason FEPA is SO evil, is in the systematic destruction of America, education is the choice weapon and data mining (aka: student data rape) has been the key trigger.
FEPA, along with 2 others (HR 2434 College Transparency Act; HR 3157 Student Privacy Protection Act)were introduced during the 115th Congress. Each of these could work together or stand alone all have life-long data tracking (aka: open data) built in. The Big Biz, Big Tech, and Big Government have long been after our information of ALL kinds, FEPA now allows that…nationally, via a single, unified system.
**The Bigs (as I call them) all feel we have NO right to our privacy and that it all belongs to them. Is is because they care about us? No, it’s for control and money.

Helping set up the FEPA for passage? Look below:

2) The Bill of Rights in our Constitution (1-10) find the most negative impact from FEPA.
The First Amendment is centered on freedom of speech. However, only the speech is protected. Expression isn’t. So, with FEPA’s constant tracking our every move, our every word, HOW we express ourselves will be closely monitored. That removes OUR choice of expression.

2a) The Second Amendment has been the most targeted, in my opinion, in recent history.
I’ve shared with you in the past how the CCSS (Common Core State Standards, rebranded as CCR, College/Career Readiness) have used anti-gun control as a key point in curriculum used. Add to that the ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act’s mandate for ‘safe schools’ where not only anti-2nd Amendment rhetoric is attached, but every student must be mentally evaluated. FEPA will tie to the gutted FERPA and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) in these mental evaluations, thus taking personal private data from your students with or without consent. (*Remember, since FEPA creates a data track for every one, student or not, you too, will be mentally evaluated and labeled accordingly.)

3) Our 4th Amendment states no unreasonable arrest or search can happen. FEPA guts this off the bat. How? By having our lives and homes constantly monitored, the government is already inside, so no searching will be needed. As far as arrest, with our other rights muted or removed, we could be found guilty of any number of activities. These by, default, plays right into the 5th and 6th Amendments concerning self-incrimination and our rights if we are accused. FEPA will assault these, too.

4) Amendments 9 and 10 stand to cause the most havoc in State level government. Nine assures us any right NOT listed in the Constitution is safe. Ten, of course assigns State’s rights concerning their citizens. State’s rights have already been eroded by federal laws, programs, funding, etc. FEPA will remove any State power and assign it to the federal level. How? That single, unified system of control.

5) Amendments 14 and 16 lay out citizenship rights and federal income tax. Since FEPA will use personal data (expanding it to non-census data, too) from the Public Private Partnerships (P3s) such as the FBI and Amazon. The IRS has now been included in that expansion. So have the HHS, ED, and others.
federal agency or funds you have used their services or received money from automatically will be used to tag you in the FEPA system. The more tags, the more compartmentalized you are until you are pigeon-holed into a certain sector where the appropriate entitlements and government programs will best suit you. Somewhat tied to the taxation is the 24th and 26th Amendments.

Lady Liberty Weeps 2

Those Pesky, “Unintended” Consequences of FEPA:

1) Whom you associate with will be watched and monitored.
2) Your privacy is of no concern, even in your home and especially via all the “Smart Devices” you use. Big Tech is rejoicing FEPA is law, the data is all theirs, anyway (or so they believe)
3) If you find yourself in need of a jury, who determines those who make up the jury?
4) The freedom to travel where you wish, as you wish may become restricted, due to association, taxes, tolls, or for any arbitrary reason the government designs.
5) The freedom to religious worship, is at stake, too.

6) “Evidence Based” is code for collection of data.
7) FEPA bastardizes the weakened Net Neutrality, so everything on-line is open for collection. It also feeds off of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and will use AI to align and confine us.
8) FEPA will use the 5G technology against Americans, not in favor of them. Don’t believe the hype that 5G will be a faster internet connection. A Trojan awaits in ANYTHING 5G. (BitCoins, Social Impact Investing, Community Partnerships, included those between cities and churches are a few of what is tied to 5G and a weakened State.)
9) FEPA (a supposedly education minded bill) sat in the Senate’s Homeland Security Committee longer than anywhere else in Congress. Why? FEPA alters the infrastructure of America!
10) Since FEPA attacks both the Declaration of Independence (based on natural rights and justice) and the Constitution (rules enforced by the government), every citizen should be up in arms and alarmed at what freedoms and rights are at stake!

Citizen Recourse:

Warriors, I’m sure by now, you are wondering what in the world we CAN do to fight back. I believe I have found something we can use to seriously land a blow to Congress and FEPA.

Consider the HR 4174’s track record, it’s full of broken procedures and rules used to ram it through BOTH Chambers. Congress claims there was no negative feedback (which would have given us a hearing). There was enough negative feedback to call for two hearings, but we were ignored. No debate, once HR 4174 came up for a vote on the Senate floor mere days before Christmas 2018. The vote? A voice one, again, no way for the citizens to hold Congress accountable.

Recourse #1: Since we have no record of how our Senators voted on HR 4174, we CAN find out how they voted on the Motion to Suspend Rules and Concur in the Senate! More than likely, if they voted to suspend, they voted for passage.

Recourse #2: FEPA is our enemy. If you need a better grasp on how Social Impact Bonds and BitCoins play into FEPA, visit Wrench In the Gears blog. Alison has done a superb job of explaining how both attach not only data to your profile, but will rank and file you like the Chinese Sesame Credit System. If you want a scathingly accurate account of how badly Congress dropped the ball with FEPA, read Dr. Young’s latest article on the subject. Of course, we have Jane Robbins’ “What is FEPA?” video and Christel Swasey’s video.

Recourse #3: Warriors, have you ever heard of the Unconstitutional Official Acts? I stumbled upon this while looking for quotes on liberty and its cost. Known simply as “-16 Am Jur. Sec. 177 late 2d, Sec 256” this Statute lays out how our U.S. Constitution beats out EVERYTHING.

It states that ANY act of any government official which violates our U.S. Constitution should be removed from office. No exceptions, no excuses.

Closing:

Warriors,isn’t it time we shake up DC?! FEPA, along with ESSA, has GOT to GO!
“Draining” DC hasn’t gotten us nowhere, especially in education.

I’m not ready to have my freedoms taken away, and I imagine you aren’t either.

The AIM’s The Same

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve heard that beauty’s skin deep, right? What Congress is doing to our education system (birth to adult) isn’t beautiful. It’s disgraceful.

headlessCCSS
Congress, I want MORE than just a shell of who my students used to be. 

AIMing for Students:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of HR 4029 (AIM Act of 2017), you are about to.
“AIM” stands for ‘Accurate Income Measure’. The purpose? To direct Secretary Betsy DeVos where income data for cosmetology students is concerned. It ties the U.S. Dept. of Education to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service).

Currently, HR 4029 is in the House’s Education and Workforce Committee (where it’s been since October 2017). Introduced by Rep. Jackie Speier (CA), this Bill DOES limit DeVos’s powers in some ways, but then allows her to use her power in some very concerning ways.

Any data, even ‘income data’ should be part of our privacy, not up for grabs to share. However, we know, that at least 9 different federal agencies freely share our private data.

What spurred HR 4029? It appears it’s a reaction to a lawsuit where DeVos’s use of student data was capricious. (*Note: the AACS, American Association of Cosmetology Schools not only brought the lawsuit about, but has a “Government Relations Committee” as members of the US Dept. of Education. Their Committee also is in the executive and legislative branches.)

Rather than punish DeVos, this Bill redirects her use of student data in the name of insuring students get good paying jobs. But, look closer at the lawsuit and contrast it with the Bill.

Speier’s Stance:

Warriors, I wanted us to take a few moments to look at Rep. Speier’s stance on education. While I searched her website, I didn’t see any official statement, but I did find that she supports the technology bridge between the private sector and the federal government especially where education and jobs connect. I also found, where in 2009, she was seeking federal funds for expanding CBE (Competency Based Education) for students in college. The major? Early childhood education. (look below)

According to the Open Secrets website, the University of California is among Rep. Speier’s top campaign contributors.

Where Cosmetology Is In the CBE (Competency Based Education)?

Warriors, according to the CTE (Career Tech Education) Clusters, ‘cosmetology’ is found in the ‘human services’ cluster. Since there are only 16 Career Clusters, and many types of jobs in human services, ‘cosmetology’ is listed in the personal care track.

onetcosmSource

So, Warriors, this begs the question: since HR 4029 unites  Federal Education to the Tax Department, where will Labor Department fit in? Answer: the shared data!

*************************************************************************************

Back in Dec. 2014, I revealed to you how Cengage (a huge CCSS Machine member) is the main publisher for CBE/CTE Common Core books, courses, assessments, and, resources.
Among them? The “Milady” resources used for training cosmetologists. (*Note: Cengage has a profile on Rep. Speier’s votes. To access it, go here.)

Warriors, not only will we find cosmetology courses in K-12th grades and community colleges, there are several privately owned cosmetology companies/schools out there.

I showed you the dangers of privately owned companies using the same textbooks and resources of the CCSS Machine and how harmful this is. A big tactic for cosmetology schools used against students is ‘free’ technology upon registration.

ICYMI:

From the AACS’s website, this career-ready course can be found:

aacs.jpg

Since cosmetology courses are CCSS aligned and each school teaching it receives federal funds, where would find those funding streams? A huge one is the E-rate. I exposed that information in 2016.

Lastly, Warriors, HR 4029 will impact the HEA (Higher Education Act). Since that law is being re-written, watch for how ‘gainfully employed’ may be defined. Will the true definition remain, or, will that change to reflect the CCSS Machine’s alignment? With the massive amounts of data needed, what new(er) student data raping algorithms will be inserted into the ‘new’ HEA?

Closing:

So, Warriors, this Bill focusing on ONE career is troubling. Will this AIM legislation be attached to all careers? Will that AIM be embedded in the House and Senate versions of HEA (House’s version is the PROSPER Act; Senate’s is the Higher Education Innovation Act). Will this type of AIM be embedded in other HEA amendment bills? (There are tons of these, by the way.)

Why is a CA Representative who is usually championing for women and the military concerning herself with cosmetology students? I believe, Rep. Speiers, is like all the other sold out legislators who believe CBE is the only alignment needed to make education and jobs matter. How disgraceful.

FTF: What More Do We Need, Anti CCSS Warriors?

Senators, like the Representatives have shown little care about the dire messages we've been sending.
Senators, like the Representatives, have shown little care about the dire messages we’ve been sending.

Anti CCSS Warriors, if you listened to the ‘debate’ in the Senate yesterday, 7/13/15, you, like myself, got a belly full of lies. If you didn’t listen in, I hope to shed at least a little light on what some the fodder was. Why? There will be even more today. Sen. Alexander pulled a surprise move just before the close of the day by asking for ‘closure’. It was so surprising, even Sen. Harry Reid fussed about it.

What does the move mean? Sen. Alexander was basically saying there had been enough debate and that it is now time to move on. So, today’s hearing should be not only interesting, but dangerous.

However, let me summarize from the beginning of the meeting:
1) I watched the entire session on: http://www.senate.gov/floor/  CSpan2 will also carry it, but you must have a cable provider.
2) Three p.m. open the Senators day with “Morning Business”
3) There were some amendments offered up, ones for post secondary data mining, anti gender discrimination (ie: LGBT), student data privacy, and career readiness.

I’m not going too much into detail for any of these because I’m sure we’ll hear more about them in today’s session. I also know, several news sources have already shared information. My goal is, as always, to give you what the mainstream media won’t.

What’s dangerous about those amendments? As usual, on the surface, it would appear not much. However, the 2 amendments concerning post secondary education (data mining and career readiness) are full of not only CCSS, CTE alignment, but they help tighten up the noose the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014, laid out for education. Let me stress, this will not only impact those in post-secondary classes, courses, or grade levels, the career readiness is embedded in grade levels well BEFORE the post-secondary attendance! Workforce also impacts every adult who’s headed back to work. Again, using education as the blow that stuns.
As far as the student privacy committee who’ll be studying data harvesting, know this is again monkeying with FERPA, the original law set up to protect such data. When FERPA was changed, is when we began to see the private data go viral and become one of the hottest ‘items’ available on the open business market. Anita Hoge has shared several documents about the where the data comes from, where it’s headed, and everything in between. Let me stress, it is not as worthy an amendment as it was sold.
One such document: http://www2.ed.gov/about/bdscomm/list/eec/equity-excellence-commission-report.pdf Then, there’s this one:
https://www2.ed.gov/about/bdscomm/list/eec/equity-excellence-commission-report-compendium.pdf
As far as the discrimination amendment, the basic intent is worthy of an out and out bill of its own, not an amendment to a bad bill. What will be a major concern with this amendment is how the Title 9 funding, and law’s language are treated. As we’ve seen before with CCSS, by altering how laws like Title 9 are structured, produces nothing truly good.

Will any of these amendments survive to actually become a viable part of ECAA? Will they be further misused to advance the CCSS Machine’s agenda? 

As of the close of ‘business’ last night, the Senate voted unanimously to attach Sen. Hatch’s student data privacy study committee (the groups Sen. Hatch praised as helping give him insight towards creating this amendment were all well known, pro CCSS groups).

During my weekly guest spot on 7/15/15 on the  Negdog Radio Show, our topic is a more in-depth discussion of the Senate’s moves for ECAA. Tune in from 9:30 am to 11:30 am, each Wednesday, where the ‘war against the core’ hits the radio. Link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/negdog-radio

Lastly, I will openly confess I was so angry by the end of the Session, that I came up with a new name for ECAA (Every Child Achieves Act), for me, it’s the EPDEA (Every Politician Deceives for Education Act)
