All Encompassing Moves

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, did you know there are 4 US Congressional bills which seek to globalize 2 distinct SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) agenda points in America?

If not, that’s the topic for today’s article.
Meet ‘sisters’ HR 753 and S 324 (Global Electoral bills) along with S 861 and HR 1857 (Global LGBTI* bills).

What will these Bills mean for education, should they become law? Before we find out, remember, that I shared how HR 1 (For the People Act) has quite a few back doors into education with a UN (United Nations) agenda attached. As you know, the SDGs are the  UN’s doing.

HR 1857 and S 861: International Human Rights Defense Act of 2019.

First, let’s define “LGBTI”: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and, Intersexual.

Secondly, What Senators and Representatives running for President (or considering running) are sponsoring or co-sponsoring either of these ‘sisters’?
In the Senate: Co-sponsors, Warren, Gillibrand, Sanders, Harris, and, Booker.(*Note: Sen. Markey is the sponsor and there are a total of 21 Senators backing this.)
In the House: Co-sponsors, Ryan, Moulton, and, Swalwell. (*Note: Rep. Lowenthal is the sponsor.)

When you look below, don’t miss the Trump Administration’s continuation of the Obama Administration LGBTI agenda. How did that happen? Fellow Warrior, Alex Newman explained in 2018, that Sec. Pompeo was the main reason.

s861

Third, these Bills basically use the U.S. State Dept.’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and, Labor to create a new government official position: LGBTI Envoy.

If you’ve not read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the State Dept. has a copy.

Warriors, on Pages 13 and 14 of S 861, I found this: ‘bilateral and multilateral fora’. What in the world is that?!  Well, bi-lateral would mean two nations, or in this case, 2 groups agreeing to make across the board changes. Multi-lateral means many nations, or in this case, many people, agreeing to make changes across the board. Fora (related to ‘forum’) means a central meeting place.
So, in other words, the programs, policies, funding, and whatever else relates to making changes at every level and in every corner for the LGBTI Envoy will be needed. This will not only impact Americans, but the citizens all over the world.

On Page 17, you’ll see that all US federal agencies will need to devote money for programs for the LGBTI citizens here and those who are resettling into America from elsewhere. This will combine government at all levels, non-government groups, and faith-based entities.

Page 18 shows you how the USAID will co-ordinate with the new Envoy. Warriors, as you know, I’ve shown you how the USAID is in the CCSS Machine, as well as the State Dept. Page 19 will reveal the data tracking needed to safeguard LGBTI citizens.

Page 20 shows the “Global Strategy Requirements” needed. Basically total collaboration and co-ordination of all US federal agencies (including the U.S. Dept. of Education). Page 23 will embed child marriage statuses, Page 24 shows the U.S. Global Equality Fund*, while 25 reveals a leadership program for LGBTI activists needs to happen (at taxpayer expense?). (*Note: the GEF, Global Equality Fund is held in the State Dept. and is a P3 (public private partnership).)

HR 753 and S 324, Global Electoral Exchange Act:

Warriors, the sponsor for HR 753 is Rep. Castro (brother to 2020 Presidential hopeful). The Senate version is sponsored by 2020 Presidential hopeful Sen. Klobuchar. The Senate version has one co-sponsor, while the House’s version has 3. (*Note: you can access Klobuchar’s education stance here.)

For my fellow NC Warriors, Rep. Mark Meadows is a co-sponsor on HR 753. You may wish to ask him about his loyalty to the US, and the folks of NC.

What will these Bills do? Warriors, basically, it’s the sense of Congress that we need to employ internationally recognized election ‘best practices’ into the ones held here, in the US. It’s also their sense that other nations can employ American ‘best practices’ in elections. Like the other pair of ‘sister bills’ (above), these Bills authorize the U.S. State Dept. of create and administer GEEP (Global Electoral Exchange Program).

Like the two ‘sisters’ above, these Bills also create a unity between the State Dept. and USAID. How? In the form of awarding financial grants.

Warriors, the U.S. Dept. of Education was not mentioned in either Bill, but we can pretty guess from the information we have that our students will somehow be impacted.

The Americans traveling, as well as the visiting countries cannot influence elections; cannot meddle with legitimacy of elections; and, cannot study any election (local, State, or, federal) without official permission. Congress will also create a GEEP Alumni. After GEEP (should it become law) is in place, bi-annual reports must be given. No end date was given, so we can pretty much guess that HR 753/ S 324 mean to make this permanent. No price tag was given, but I can assure you GEEP will NOT be cheap.

What type of groups are eligible for the GEEP Grants? Any group which defined by the IRS Tax Code of 1986, Sect. 501 (c) (3), as well as tax exempt under Sect. 501 (a).

1986taxcode

Warriors, do you see the danger of our REPUBLIC in these Bills? With all the problems our nation faces why must we see Congress place us in the center of every other country’s business? Do we really need every other country in ours?

While securing humans don’t get attacked for what they are or how they believe, why is the State Dept. increasing in power and authority? As far as our elections? That needs to be within our borders, not spread across oceans.

Since the State Dept. is enlarging (which certainly is not shrinking the federal footprint), we need to look at those leading the Dept.

Are they in the CCSS Machine? Since the State Dept. is a ‘card carrying’ CCSS Machine member, we HAVE to know. (*Note: Sec. Pompeo is most definitely in the CCSS Machine. His top contributors (from his Congressional days) were Koch Brothers/Industries, AT & T, Big Biz, Big Insurance, and, Big Labor.)

Why would Congress wish to make these plans? I believe it’s a way to seek more control over us, as citizens while globalizing our nation in some big ways.

Related Legislation:

There are  redistricting Bills which will feed off the ‘big Census’ (decennial) data. The next ‘big Census’ is in 2020. These will thrive on data collection and storage. If States cannot follow the federal mandates, then the federal government will step in and handle any redistricting measures needed.

There’s also a House bill (HR 51) which will also redesign the nation’s districts/representation by making the District of Columbia into a State. This Bill has lots of support (203 co-sponsors; Reps. Ryan, Moulton, and, Swalwell are the 2020 Presidential hopefuls backing this) in the House. In the Senate, the identical ‘twin sister’ is S 631 (32 co-sponsors; Sens. Sanders, Klobuchar, Harris, Booker, and, Gillibrand are the 2020 Presidential hopefuls backing this version). Warriors, these Bills will also fully repeal the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution.

Census Information Is Used To Create Redistricting:

We know that the 2020 Census has been beefed up to take more of our personal information than ever before. The  redistricting Bills I’ve seen will prohibit States from redistricting in certain ways as well as tell them how to redistrict.
Two of these redistricting Bills have the same name (John Tanner Fairness and Independence in Redistricting Act). The third is called the Coretta Scott King Mid-Decade Redistricting Prohibition Act.

Warriors
, if you’re concerned about seeing your State redistricted and told how to do it, I urge you to take the time to read HR 124 and HR 130 (John Tanner) and HR 44 (Coretta Scott King). These will literally impact your home, your family, and, your neighborhoods.

If you’re concerned about the 2020 Census, I urge you to read the Census Bureau’s Planning Survey (released in Jan. 2019) as well as the Final Report on the focus groups used. You’ll find (Final Report) that education is considered a ‘soft quota data point’ on the Census. So, any question concerning education will be amassed to help community (local, State, and, federal) funding. With the grasp the CCSS Machine has on education, this is crucial.

I did look at the questions on the Planning Survey, and, frankly some were a bit too nosy for my taste. For example, how often are you on the internet? What type of device do you use? Then, there was Question #44:

census

Warriors, if you look at the Operational Design for the 2020 Census, you’ll find that third party data partnerships are a reality. You’ll also see the Census Bureau is going to be pushing on-line participation rather than the old paper forms we have filled out. Much like those high-stakes assessments our students have, I’d say opt for paper & skip on-line.
(*Note: On page 59, you’ll see the redistricting information and how it’s used.)

Let’s remember that the Census Bureau is housed in the U.S. Dept. of Commerce. This federal agency is also a CCSS Machine member group. In the President’s 2020 Budget, you’ll see their connection to education.

Warriors, we also know the Census directly impacts funding and programs in your communities. HR 1451 (Community Service related) is called the “Keep Community Service Local Act”. Now, the odd thing about this Bill is that it prohibits States from ending their Corporation for National and Community Service office UNLESS the federal government approves it. If you’ve not heard of this corporation, you may know it by some of the programs it oversees, AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, etc. I’ve shown you how these are CCSS Machine aligned and will fit into ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act).

How, is THAT State sovereignty? How is THAT local control?

Think about this way, ESSA  mandated that communities align their efforts to ‘student achievement’. Also, community service projects are key to some education programs. By having a national “Mother, may I?” bill hardly seems it’s geared for the citizens. But, then ESSA wasn’t geared for the students, teachers, or, taxpayers either. 

Closing:

Warriors, are you seeing the circle around your community shrinking? I hope so. The government is NOT our friend. It’s not our protector. Government isn’t even listening to us.

As I said in my last article, a full mode of civil disobedience is in order. We cannot allow DC to manipulate us in the ways these Bills are being considered. We have a charge to take down our government when it ceases to be about “We the People” and becomes about ‘We the Corporate Minions’

Ready or Not…

Anti CCSS/ESSA Warriors, we have seen the purposed shift from “Common Core State Standards” to “College and Career Ready Standards”. Together, we have found the evidence which proves these two phrases do NOT mean 2 different sets of Standards. They ARE one in the same. Together, we have found some of the CCSS Machine member organizations responsible for spewing education reform rhetoric. We have listened, seen, and experienced their fallacy ridden efforts to deceive Americans.

Trouble is, the CCSS Machine is NOT slowing down now that ESSA is the law of the land. In fact, the CCSS Machine is busy this summer cranking more fallacies up and out. The Machine only ASSUMES we Warriors are taking the summer break time to refrain from our “War Against the Core”.

Hardly!

The Superintendents Association:

If you have followed my blog long, you know how much of a part of the CCSS Machine, the AASA (American Association of School Administrators) or as they are more well known: ‘The School Superintendents Association’, is. If you are new to the blog, suffice it to say that this pro ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) group is VERY ready, willing, and so far, able to deceive Americans when it comes to ‘College and Career Readiness’. (*Note: the ESSA champions that CCSS (Common Core State Standards) will be gone and that CCR (College and Career Readiness) will replace them.)

So what has the AASA done to spread the deceptions? They have begun a national campaign called “Redefining Readiness”! This group is wasting no time in their pro ESSA efforts. Just a couple of months ago they were busy hosting ESSA webinars, writing reports on how great ESSA is for education to be returned to the States. And now, a national campaign..My, my..

AASAready

To access the website for this new campaign, http://www.redefiningready.org/
It is interesting to note that you will not see the AASA’s logo or information on most of the webpages included on the Campaign site.
In fact it wasn’t until I got to the ‘Resources’ page that I found them. Here is an excerpt, “Take advantage of our resources to engage your schools and your communities in the important national campaign – Redefining Ready!  Our campaign seeks to equip school administrators with the necessary resources to easily implement the new college and career readiness metrics at high schools across the nation.  We have also created sample resolutions to help education advocates and government leaders support our initiative. Email RedefiningReady@aasa.org if you have resources you would like to share! “ What follows this exciting news, are sample letters, legislation, and other items for promoting College and Career Readiness. Get the downloads of the samples: http://www.redefiningready.org/resources/ (*Note: the resources will go straight to the download option in your computer instead of opening up the sample on a new page.)

According to the National Campaign, there are 3 types of Readiness for our students.
College ready (students are determined ‘college ready’ by how well they score on assessment benchmarks and/or academic benchmarks.), Career Ready (students are determined ‘career ready’ by indicating a career choice, meeting behavior benchmarks, and performing community service.), and finally, Life Ready (students are determined as ‘life ready’ by leaving high school with ‘grit’ and perseverance; a ‘growing’ mindset, and very little else. To see the different readiness requirements:

So far, Warriors, you can see there is tremendous cause for concern. However, what you see below is straight from the National Campaign’s website. I hope you spot the irony.readyresearch
From the first paper (highlighted in red), comes this excerpt about the use of SLDS (student longitudinal data system), “The data for this study come from two sources: the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), conducted by WestEd (WestEd, 2014), and publicly available school-level data from the California Department of Education (CDE).”

Remember, Warriors, this national readiness campaign is supposed to be about education. See how the data mining is being used to redefine education?!

From the second highlighted red item, (which takes you to a Hechinger Report article, which has a study embedded (the study was conducted by a part of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services). The evidence used is based on how successful ONE (one of the nation’s largest) school district was. Here is the actual study:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3831577/

You can find the above screen shot, on the Redefining Readiness’ website’s ‘General Research’ tab.

There are 2 other Research topics as well. “College Ready Research” and “Career Ready Research”.
To access the “College Ready” items, see:  http://www.redefiningready.org/research-college-ready/
Here you will find dual enrollment (effects any educational choice utilizing this educational option), IB schools, and more topics.
To access the “Career Ready” items, see: http://www.redefiningready.org/research-career-ready/
Here you will find research which will impact EVERY person who gets a job. The first source cited is the Harvard University/Pearson Publishing project, “Pathway to Prosperity”. Yes, you will see the Redefining Readiness folks cite a 1988 Report. PtoP used THAT Report as inspiration. Oh, and alignment…
I first covered this very same Harvard/Pearson Project in early 2015. See:
https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/03/12/tech-thursday-difference-between-careers/

As far as those credentials Redefining Readiness is so excited about? Here is one article where I researched and shared how damaging this is: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/tech-thursday-just-say-no-to-nocc/

College and Career Readiness, WIOA, and HEA:

Since the CCSS Machine is out to streamline education from birth to the grave, two OTHER laws are in existence to make sure this happens in ADDITION to the ESSA.
These are WIOA of 2014 and the HEA (last re-written in 2008, renewed for funding purposes in Dec. 2015, and being re-written by some of the SAME backers as the ESSA)

WIOA of 2014 stands for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 and cemented into law Career Pathways, Career Clusters, apprenticeships, and so much more into our States. Job development grants, workforce based education, and data mining. The idea was to create it so that those wanting to work would have a certain track to follow and the data mining would help education plan and teach to these tracks. The WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative) was created to pull this off. WIOA is from the U.S. Dept. of Labor. It covers the workforce..all ages, all educational choices.

HEA of 2008 stands for Higher Education Act. It,too has tons of data mining built in (yes, even then). It also had the foundation laid for educational alignment which we now see as work of the CCSS Machine. When ESSA was passed and the bragging speeches began in D.C. it was spoken as both a promise and a warning..that the HEA was next; that HEA was the final piece in the legislation which would complete the bridge from education to work.

I have covered post-secondary Common Core, Career Tech Education, or any of the other names the agenda uses, extensively. If you wish to have the evidence for WIOA, HEA, the WQDI, or how the 2017 Federal Education Budget Requests play into all this, please let me know.

I leave you this weekend, with the image below. Investigate the Career OneStop. See the CCSS Machine’s impact on jobs for our citizens. Then see how it connects to the education of today.
