Lost Somewhere On The Road

To my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, do you know where we are? Do you know where we’re going? Before you think I’ve totally lost my mind, I do have a couple of reasons for asking these two questions.

A) We’ve just passed the 3rd anniversary of the signing of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) into law. Of course, this was after both chambers of Congress sold our students, teachers, schools, and, taxpayers down the river. Let me see if I can illustrate the importance of how ESSA has failed us, even before the ink was dry on the paper.

From a recent conversation with my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warrior, Betty:
“We’re not better off now than we were before ESSA.” When I asked her exactly what she meant, she told me it was much like attending a Tupperware party. You’re invited to someone’s home, you see the products demonstrated and well those tight fitting lids adhere to their containers.

You hear how great this is in protecting your food and you can save money. Then, you place an order. You take the product home, expressing to your family how great this will be in protecting food and saving money. When you take out your shiny new Tupperware container and lid, you can’t get the seal to adhere properly, no matter how much you try. You repeatedly try to get your Tupperware to perform exactly as the sales professional showed you. Nothing. Frustrated, you sit down in defeat and realize, you haven’t saved money. You haven’t been able to protect the food, so it spoils anyway.
Warriors, apply this concept to education in the ESSA Era.
***************************************************
B) We’re also about the see a new session of Congress take hold in America. Where will that lead us? If it’s anything like the outgoing session, it’s one step closer to more UN (United Nations) control, especially in education aligned to workforce.

To Congress, We the People are as lost as can be and can only be saved by their control. For We the People, we know where our nation is heading much better than we’re given credit for.

The U.N.’s Upset:

Warriors, did you know that in October of this year (2018) the U.N. was featured in an article where the organization was actually quite upset that their precious SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) 2030 target for complete control is ‘way off track’?!

upsetUN

The article also goes on to point out that there are a lot of pessimistic views that by 2030, the global alignment will be complete. The article also lays out how determined the U.N. is to force everyone into the SDGs.

Frankly, I could care less that the U.N.’s upset or that they are trying to pass off the SDGs as ‘aspirational’. If you’ve read the Goals, seen the massive amounts of federal and State level legislation implementing the SDGs, you know these Goals are directives and/or mandates.
**********************************************************

sdgboard
I know, Warriors, we hate those SDGs, especially after seeing how much damage they’ve done to education.
The SDGs have been woven into American education well before ESSA, but did you know some of the ESSA mandates echo the U.N.’s SDGs?
In some instances, almost word for word!

ESSA certainly upped the ante on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math).  To those of us fighting the CCSS Machine, we know STEM is 100% an educational tool being used against us. Not only in education, but in our communities. We anti Fed Ed Warriors know STEM is directly from the SDGs.

BUT, ESSA also upped the ante on workforce aligned education. That, too, my Warriors, is 100% U.N. directed. You can’t have a global unity without a unified workforce. You can’t have a ‘greater good’ if some of your workers are conformed.

This leads to WHY we shouldn’t disregard the U.N.’s disappointment…

I’m not suggesting we, as Warriors, be afraid of the U.N. I’m pointing out where we need to armed and ready for where the U.N. re-directs its efforts to align American education.

I’m showing you where to look to see HOW the U.N. attacks America, as a freedom-loving nation. As long as we are tied to the U.N. in ANY way, we are a member-state. As such, we must comply.

Also from the article (above) there’s one example for compliance. It’s  the fact that in Ghana, a national ID program has been rolled out to create better access to health care, education, etc. (Sound familiar?) However, with a national ID card, you’re also much easier to data track.

Which is why the other facts from the article are important. They show how hungry for personal private data the U.N. is; how big data is here to stay; how groups like the Gates Foundation Goalkeepers are helping the SDGs along. Warriors, we cannot assume that because the U. N. hasn’t gotten what it wants up until now, that we’ll be safe. Hardly. We must stay feisty. We must remain alert and pro-active.

stempbl1
Make NO mistake: it has been a calculated plan for STEM and Common Core to be directly related.

Where Else The Road Leads:

Recently, I was researching for an interview about the U.N.’s overreach into American Education. I found the trail leads to a couple of places you Warriors may know (or may not). The latest FAFSA information for those students wanting to go to college (or are being forced to fill the form out to graduate high school) contains all kinds of information which could be another article all by itself. However, as many times as the College Board is mentioned, I looked at bit closer. Buried in the College Board’s fine print for taking the SAT exams is this:

collegeboardunesco

(The College Board document can be found here. The added emphasis you see is from the UNESCO Archives as well as the U.S. State Dept. Archives.

If you wish to see where else UNESCO Coupons are issued or accepted, visit here.
To see the complete list of USA UNESCO Coupons suppliers and those groups accepting them, find that here. Warriors, you’ll be armed with the knowledge that some key CCSS Machine groups are in the UNESCO Coupon system.

Another road stop? The UNESCO ASPNet, spread across the globe. Here in the USA, 27 States and the District of Columbia are members of this network. What’s ASPNet?
The U.N.’s Associated School Project Network.

ASPNet was founded in 1953 to encourage world-wide peace and international understanding. Now, I couldn’t find out how many US schools have been in this program since its inception, but I can tell you that in 2018, there are 52 ASPNet Schools.
Eighteen States and D.C. are involved: FL, NY, WY, MD, PA, CT, WI, VA, CA, NJ, LA, MA, OH, MT, MN, GA, VT, HI, NH, and DC. These schools range from preK to college.

What’s ASPNet’s Goal? It’s nothing more than a front for global citizenship grooming:

aspbites

Warriors, if you’ve not seen the Global Citizen Pledge (which will replace the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance) here it is:

fbglobalpledge

************************************************************************
Closing:

For all it’s supposed unity, the U.N. is the WORST at keeping peace. They are ‘champions of coercion’ at creating a false sense of peace. Think of it as ‘my way or the highway’. Or, put another way, the big bully on campus.

Ironically, the U.N. is bending over backwards to rule out any and all bullies, except themselves.
For all the supposed freedom of ideals the U.N. claims the SDGs give us, there’s clearly only ONE road the U.N. really wants the rest of the world on: theirs.

By forcing the US into its SDGs mold, we’re seeing a fast lane on the U.N. road lead us to the  destruction of education, of our way of life, our beliefs, and our freedom.

Will ‘They’ Live On?

It’s hard to believe we’re coming up on the 3rd anniversary of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), isn’t it.

Has much changed, my Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as far as the educratic overreaches? The honest truth: No.

We were promised those federal overreaches would be gone and in their place, real local voices and true local control. Again, the honest truth: hasn’t happened. Neither Congress OR the U.S. Dept. of Education has removed ‘fed ed strings’ (aka ‘fed ed money’)
I don’t know about you, Warriors, but I’ve met used car salesmen with more honesty than the ESSA sales pitch we got in 2015 or in every sales pitch since.

Will the 116th Congress be any different? No. That session, set to begin 1/3/19 and expire 1/3/21 appears to be JUST as educratically filled with BS than previous ones.

deptoflies
(By the way, DeVos’s 2018 tour was titled “Rethink School”. It was a carry over of 2017’s tour. At least those Secretaries before her had some originality. All lies, but still..)

Warriors, when the 116th Congress is sworn in, the Education and Workforce Committee will shift from Rep. Virginia Foxx’s CCSS/CTE Machine alignment to (more than likely) Rep. Bobby Scott’s CCSS/CTE Machine alignment.

Over in the Senate, the HELP (Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions) Committee will shift from Sen. Lamar Alexander’s CCSS/CTE Machine alignment to that of Sen. Patty Murray’s alignment (more than likely).

However, bear in mind that BOTH Alexander and Foxx will not be ranking members of the minority party. So, in essence, the Republicans and Democrats have merely swapped places in power, NOT dedicated themselves to righting the wrongs committed against our nation, especially in education.

murrayscott
As we know, the Democrats and Republicans will be split in the 116th, as far as power. However, as we’ve seen the political party doesn’t matter when it comes to educratic overreach. One is JUST as responsible as the other and NEITHER has repealed or recalled ANY of the other’s damage in education!!

Oh, and all the OTHER Congressional Committees? Will they overreach into education? Sure! They already have, so why stop now? Look above at the red font: “Educrats have NO business overseeing education and labor!”

Warriors, regardless if it’s the House or Senate, Republican or Democrat; education and labor have been purposefully embedded together in ESSA, in WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), HEA (Higher Education Act), and countless others.


The CCSS Machine calls the intersection two things:
1) College/Career Ready (education aligned to workforce)
2) Human Capital (people)

 

Human capital concept in tag cloud

So DO the other Congressional Committees intersect education and labor? Certainly, in one way or many, it all interconnects. As we see above, the CCSS Machine sees it and Congress enacts it. Which is WHY we MUST be ready to fight back in 2019.

Why? Only one federal education law has yet to be re-authorized and when it is, it’ll complete the birth to death (aka ‘cradle to grave’) workforce prep the CCSS Machine needs. Know as HEA in the past, the 115th Congress gave it new names (just like ESEA* got a new name with ESSA). *Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

The House’s new name? The PROSPER Act. (HR 4508)
The Senate’s? Higher Innovation Education Act. (S 615)

Now, Warriors, there are several other House Bills and Senate Bills which seek to amend the HEA. But remember, every single one of them will expire Jan. 3rd, 2019 just as the new Congress is sworn in. Does that mean PROSPER and HIEA will disappear? Will all those other HEA amendment Bills disappear, too?

No, they’ll have to ‘die’ as 115th’s work and then be ‘reborn’ as 116th’s work. Think of it as the cockroach you can’t kill. It keeps coming back. It’s an old Congressional trick I’ve seen used many times in research. The agenda just keeps grinding on.

From one Session to another.

However, we AREN’T powerless to let this continue, Warriors!

This isn’t the December greeting you were expecting, but it’s high time we realize that WE the People do NOT have to allow Congress to keep the CCSS Machine supplied with legislation to rubber stamp the ruinous impacts of turning academics into workforce training. It’s WE the People who cannot allow Congress to continue to let illegally based federal departments dictate how we, as a free people will be conformed.

We also need to remember that our current President and his advisors are pushing the ‘workforce development’ like it’s the latest greatest invention and MUST be 100% accepted, no holds barred. As I’ve said before, “There’s only ONE Savior in life and it’s NOT workforce based education!”

How are they pushing it? President Trump just attending the G20 Summit in Argentina, mere months after Betsy DeVos’s G20 Summit trip.

As I reported to you at DeVos’s meeting, she signed a pledge on behalf of us taxpayers to commit US education to be streamlined for workforce prep. Ivanka Trump has been her partner in crime (quite literally when you factor in how the U. S. Dept. of Education is) on shoving workforce aligned education at us, especially for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

The trade agreement the President just signed (the NAFTA replacement, USMCA) will also play into streamlined workforce education. I reported on that in November 2018. The irony of the USMCA? Congress will have to vote on it..in after January 2019.

Also damning our educational system is more U.S. Dept. of Education activity to shove workforce aligned education down our throats. Recently, the MOU (memorandum of understanding) with the Swiss. How is the push being played out? Apprenticeships (which impact all ages and all school choices). Back in August 2018, I revealed to you how the President’s signing into law a Bill which increased apprenticeships (along with Executive Orders) was, in fact a death knell for our nation.

As I’ve shared with you before the EU (European Union) is hell-bent on globalized workforce aligned education. Just like the G20…and the United Nations (where all the globalized workforce shift away from academics is spear-headed).

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST see the writing on the wall..it’s in our faces! WE must STOP Congress in 2019! We don’t need any Trump family member pushing the USA further down the globalization river.

We can’t allow ANY ‘powers that be’ to ignore us and help the CCSS Machine push us into the river of indoctrination of workforce alignment. It kills freedom, it kills our citizens. The price is too hefty, too unjust, and too toxic to everything America was created to be.

So, Warriors, what seeds of tyranny will we snuff out in 2019?!

 

 

Ed’s Money Pit Effect

Dear Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve heard SO many times that we, as a nation, aren’t investing enough in education. It’s used as a wedge to get most citizens activated and involved. Those of us fighting the global-to-federal-to-state-to-local-to-you overreach, know the investment hype is just that..hype.

youre-throwing-money-away

If investing in education were the fix, we would have solved the ‘dumbing down’ of America long ago.

FryingPanFire250_250
Throwing money at education hasn’t worked in years. We might as well jump in from the fire to the frying pan. We’d certainly see faster results!

Since, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), though, ‘investing’ isn’t simply about money anymore. It’s P3s (public private partnerships), it’s ‘in-kind’ donations and contributions (meaning, if you can’t give cash, give ‘stuff’) from anyone or any group approved by your SEAs or LEAs (State Education Agencies or Local Education Agencies).
The shifts in ESSA’s funding, also are worth noting here. For example, the shift from per-pupil to whole school funds.
That, my fellow Warriors, was to increase the amount of money States received. (*Note: It’s also the way to include all students in labeling them ‘at risk’ or ‘in need of intervention’.)

Before long, it wouldn’t surprise me to see either what I call the “PBS Beg-a-thons” (aka: pledge drives) or out and out auctions right outside the school buildings! Why? Because money solves everything!

freemoney

Now, Warriors, don’t get me wrong, I know running a school costs money. However, when did Congress, the United Nations and all its partners, and our State leaders decide it was either money or technology devices which would be the saving graces to American education?!

HELLO!!! NEITHER money OR technology devices will save America’s education demise! So, why is there more push than ever to ramp up the money as we ramp down the quality?

I can almost hear some citizen read this and ask me, “Why talk about this now? We’re almost in the most festive time of the year, as Americans.. I don’t wanna talk about it, I’ll deal with it next year….” My response? “We need to talk now. Congress passed the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills which mean MORE money and ‘stuff’ will be thrown at education and hope it works. Then, we’ve just had elections, which means the new leaders will be taking office at the first of the year. We MUST be pro-active, not reactive!”

selective-hearing

Warriors, believe me, the CCSS Machine is already talking about next year (and the years after) as far as money and ‘stuff’ to throw at education. Frankly, we need to catch up in the conversation. Quite simply, we need to change the narrative, not accept it!!

Where The Global Shift In Money Is Coming From:

Warriors, we already know the biggest source is the United Nations, the World Bank, IMF, Goldman Sachs, The Gates Foundation, the Middle East, the U.S. federal government,  and several other well documented groups which all belong to the CCSS Machine.  However, there are others driving the ‘money and stuff’ push on American taxpayers. We also know the global education push from groups like P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) have also been well documented. Let’s look, at some lesser known groups, though.

1) Campaignforeducation.usa.org (part of the Global Education Coalition)

globaledus
(US Programs/Priorities Source)

Warriors
, did you notice the huge amount of money? According to their website, the $39 billion isn’t enough, they want MORE!
Did you notice the attitude is that not only can global/federal government GET the taxpayer funds to pull this off…they can manage co-ordination of its use, too! Are you kidding me?? How well has managing the States turned out?! For the globalists and federal leadership: SUPER! For the States and American citizens? MICROMANAGED to the smallest degree.

A few notes about the Campaign for Global Education-U.S.
a) When you access the embedded link above, look to your right for the ‘quick actions’ of our Congress. To see the Coalition Member Groups, go to the ‘About’ tab and select.
b) There, you’ll see UNICEF, the NEA, AFT, and several other key CCSS Machine member organizations.
c) Embedded in the “Education for All” Act is a link to the “Right To Education Index”. Read the introduction to the information, and you’ll see data collection. The U.S., as a member, data mines and shares your student’s information to reports like this.
d) Of course, the Campaign receives donations..what ‘card carrying’ CCSS Machine member group wouldn’t.

Other Global Overreaches in America:

Each of these will need our money or ‘stuff’ at some point. If it’s not our money or ‘in-kind’ contribution, it’ll be big business, big pharma, big _________ (fill in the blank). Thanks to ESSA, the community mom and pop businesses, the State services will be roped in as well.

2) World Top 20 Project (website) For every person, world-wide ages 3 to 25. According to their Global Education Report 2017, those polled on the best education systems ranked more government funding as the second most important item. What group is behind World Top 20 Project? FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) FIFA’s social responsibility is carried out in education for every child on the planet. Warriors, not only will FIFA invest billions in education, but advocates that governments up the ante!

3) Center for Global Development
stated in 2016 that not only do we need globalized standard driven tests because they’re more fair to those being tested as well as international testing is cheaper. Warriors, do you see the problems with this for Americans? I do.

4) Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA), here’s their excerpt: “AIEA brings together international education leaders into dialogue with each other, their counterparts around the world, organizations that promote international education, and organizations concerned with the shaping and management of international higher education. AIEA gives members opportunities to join forces, share institutional strategies, and provide an effective voice on matters of public policy.”

5) Global School Network (GSN)is part of P21, Partnership for 21st Century Learning
(*Note: the website is up, but content is very minimal)

6) NASBE (National Assoc. of State Boards of Education)

To see the Students information, go here.  To see the CTE information, go here.
To see WV’s Globaloria information, that’s here.

7) Global Partnership in Education’s got 8 charts to plead the case for more global education. Chart #4 is where the plea for ‘we need more money’ can be found.

gpe$

From the GPE, this excerpt: “Education reduces poverty, boosts economic growth and increases income. It increases a person’s chances of having a healthy life, reduces maternal deaths, and combats diseases such as HIV and AIDS. Education can promote gender equality, reduce child marriage, and promote peace. In sum, education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.”

8)  State and District Network on International Education in the Schools (this Network is the results of a partnership between the Longview Foundation and the Asia Society). Their stance is that global education is required for graduation. See the rubric here (in a DOC file)

9) The United States Government (USAID) Education Strategy? Expansion of government and more money to invest in what is taught. As found on page 8 of the 98 page Strategy Plan, “Financial resources are critical to effective education systems”. That cost or ‘investment’? In the trillions, Warriors! The sources of all those trillions of dollars? Taxpayers, private corporations, and philanthropists. (Gee, I wonder which of the CCSS Machine billionaires is going ‘first’?)

usaidintl

From The States:

Then, there are global overreaches in every State in America!
For example, look at CT’s global education guidelines for all K-12th programs.
We saw WV, above. However, all 50 States will have some globalism in place and it will only keep expanding. How? Look at where I live, North Carolina.

The State Board of Education decides to embed globalism in education and the Department of Public Instruction carries it out. How?
Not only working with different countries, but tying education to the State level Dept. of Commerce (which will also tie education to the State level Dept. of Labor). NC’s documents also show that as of 2015-16, the use of non government partners to influence school boards was to be put into action.

In fact, one of the documents I found shows how 16 NC Counties and 2 VA Counties were used as pilot districts to help create the Global School Network! (*Note: in the document, you’ll notice the Global School Network was coordinated around 2012 by a group known as VIF, Visiting International Facility. VIF, used to train teachers (known as VIF Global Gateway Program), but shifted to focus on K-12 global education. As of 2017, VIF was re-named Participate. Today, Participate is ‘igniting change and creating impact on a global scale’. How is Participate accomplishing this? Leading edge technology in school districts!

Closing:

Warriors, the investments in education, be they money or in-kind, aren’t worth it. Not the way things are going. Taxation without representation might be theft, but overzealous philanthropists and private corporations CAN be put in their proper places..out of the classrooms! Question is, will we be that bold? Then, there’s the government..we are ITS master, not the other way around. It’s time to put DC on notice for 2019. We must, it’s our citizen’s duty as well as our patriotic responsibility.

In The Meantime..

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as we start a new month and await the results of the 2018 mid-term elections, I’ve got a few things to share.

 I’m not sure about you, but I’m puzzled that no matter what I’ve been sharing, as far as anti global or fed-led education news, I’m being told it’s not that important, that it all needs to wait until AFTER the 6th of November. THEN, we can get back to fighting the overreaches in education. I’ve also been told that anti fed education overreach evidence I’ve found isn’t a big enough deal to actually come to fruition.

cowillusion

Really?! What if those folks we need to get information to could actually shift the votes if they have the facts NOW and not later? What about those candidates who might truly NOT know all the facts; the opportunity to inform them will either be non-existent, or, not long enough to make a difference. What about the danger in our assumption that Congress would actually STOP creating federally led education overreach?

My point is simply this: EVERYDAY is the BEST day to fight to save our students! We shouldn’t be the type of citizens who load all our eggs in one basket (mid-term elections) while the varmints nip at our baskets.  We do not have the luxury of time on our sides. Quite the opposite, we should be using every moment to continue to inform others! We’ve seen the CCSS Machine use this against us. We cannot be lulled into a false sense of security. We must be diligent, we must be prepared!!

eggbasket

Looking Forward:

Let’s face it, Warriors, the federal Congress will not have much time to conduct our business after the November 6th elections. I’m pretty sure your State legislators will be on a less-busy track, too. From what I found both the House and Senate will be in session from 11/13-16 and 11/27-30th. In December, both meet 12/4-7th and 10th-13th. Then, both are back beginning Jan. 3rd, 2019 with the 116th Session. (The US Senate plans to meet on 11/26 and 12/3-4, 14th) So, in that respect I can understand why some would want to slack off a bit in our War Vs the Core. However, WE cannot be those types of people who’d rather react than be ready.

Happy-new-year-2019-clipart

We’ve not got the time to loose! While those seeking office are distracted, what are some of the things we should be looking forward to (as well as preparing for) in 2019?

Showing Us The Money:

First, if you missed it, all those federally led overreaches in the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills which were passed into law, will kick in. Don’t be surprised if you see more STEM federal legislation, either. (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Why STEM? STEM is a tool of the United Nations and their Agenda 2030. As we get closer to 2030, expect way more STEM in America from federal and State levels.

Part of the federal educratic overreach will be coming at us from the U.S. Dept. of HHS (Health and Human Services). In fact the US HHS has 2019 Goals of their own. The main one? Expansion of government run health care. It very much intersects via ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) Just one of the ways is the workforce pipeline.

healthpipeline
(Source. Note that ‘students’ appears 4 times in this Congressional justification for HHS funds in 2019)

Then, there’s the Kaiser Family Foundation (as in Kaiser Permanente tied to the Centers for Disease Control and their united efforts with Rockefeller for resilience education) Report which gives their outlook on FY 2019 as far as health care costs (associated with Medicaid) increasing. Part of the reason why? Those expanded and increasing behavioral health care and mental health programs. (Gee, the fact they’re popping up in schools wouldn’t increase the costs as well, would it?) 

Then, There’s The Labor:

In 2019, Congress will get to vote on the new NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). It’s been re-branded, too. The new name is USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement). NAFTA/USMCA has a Labor Advisory Committee (LAC). In the LAC Report from 2018 the Committee is basically trying to scare Congress into submission, from the way the language reads.

For example, the LAC tells Congress that USMCA COULD negatively impact the US workforce. How? existing NAFTA conditions have already reduced income for non-college workers in trade industries. Those who have graduated college and work in the trade industries are also facing a smaller pay check.

Their research says 2/3 of Americans are non-college graduates. The solution? Everything the LAC suggests. The main suggestions? Prepare the workforce for jobs of the future. There’s also rebuild the economy and modernize infrastructure (code for job training supersedes academics; and data tracking systems)!

Warriors, this has been the  CCSS Machine plan all along. It completely gels with the UN (United Nations) and their SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

LAC also reported that the new NAFTA (USMCA) could negatively impact all US public services and our property taxes. Warriors, basically, the USMCA would give more economic teeth to current policies which involve labor.

To access the LAC Report, go here.
If you’d like to read the MSNBC article on the new NAFTA, find that here.
Since part of the globalization of America involves education, healthcare, and labor, you may find the cost of going global is steeper than we realize.

Sure, the UN’s saying via their SDGs that the world will have quality education (ie: one way to learn so you can earn); that all poverty will be gone (ie: we’ll all be the same pay level); and that health care will be superior (ie: we will be micromanaged and controlled), has anyone really looked at what Americans will have to sacrifice to go from total freedom to total control? Has anyone calculated the loss of life to make all this happen? Has there been anyone to say, ‘Hey wait, paychecks matter. I want to feed my family and be independent!’

I did find 2 such articles which counter the spin of the MSNBC article as well as the LAC Report. I think you may find them worthwhile in reading.

Then, read the recent BBC article where surgeons are loosing dexterity to operate. How? The educratic shift!! We’ve often said in our War Vs the Core that we knew this type of situation would occur. It has begun….

lipstickpigWarriors, 2019 is the “Year of the Pig” according to the Chinese calendar. While it is considered to be a great thing (blessed with a super personality and have great fortune), to me it’s ironic. Why? We have had so much lipstick on a pig CCSS Machine moves to date, it’s amazing we’re not all knee deep in pig poop. To see 2019 contain more of the same? UGH!

Why We Should Watch The Economy:

Warriors, like it or not, the CCSS Machine has lock, stock, and barrel tied education to the economy.  So has Congress. So has the United Nations.

Education tied to the economy makes us easier to data mine and track. Education has become a weapon used against us. Our students from all ages and educational choices are being sacrificed. The cost isn’t simply dollars and cents.

Here are some documents for the global 2019 impacts we face as Americans:
1) The UN World Economic Status (NAFTA is embedded in this), education is embedded 10 times, workforce is woven in 6 different ways. “2019” appears 144 times, and, technology is present 20 times.

2) Much of the educratic CCSS Machine shift in education can be traced to private finances. CCSS Machine member Goldman Sachs (GS)  provides this document for their clients. ‘2019’ is mentioned 8 times (mostly to say they feel a recession could happen, but not likely), there is no mention of education, however. ‘Labor’ is embedded in this report 7 times. The biggest tie to GS and the educratic shift bowing to the economy is the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. I covered how that impacts education head on in this article.

3) From the World Bank:

2019worldbank
(Source)
From this June 2018 World Bank Document on Global Economic Prospects, education is embedded 17 different times. All of them tie directly to jobs and economic growth as well as ‘skill attainment’.

4) From the U.S. based “Conference Board, Inc.” a slightly gloomier aspect for jobs in 2019. However, the reason I’m including it here, is the paragraph you see below:
“The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the successor to the North American Free Trade Agreement, largely keeps provisions governing commerce between the three countries the same. This should come as a relief to businesses in most industries. One notable exception is the auto industry which must not only contend with continued steel tariffs, but also stepped up requirements on worker compensation and the use of components from outside the three countries. With auto sales and employment trends already flat to declining, industry executives must respond to a riskier environment. Upward wage pressure will be further exacerbated by a shortage of blue-collar workers who are seeing their wages rise faster than their white-collar counterparts.” (Source)

In 2019, don’t be surprised if you see an increased amount of attention placed on indigenous languages. The United Nations has declared 2019 as “The Year of Indigenous Languages”. This reaffirms the UN 2016 Indigenous Resolution’s efforts to make sure no one is left out of the shift to adhering to Agenda 2030. (Where you’ll find the SDGs.) That said, you’ll see an increase in Agenda 2030 hype, programming, and everything which connects the UN to us. Oh, and STEM (as a main tool to shift education from academics to workforce based)? Plenty of national, regional, and international events in 2019. All for the ‘next generation of learners’.

Expect more fodder from Congress, too, Warriors. Like this email excerpt from the Chairwoman of the U.S. House’s Education and Workforce Committee, (Foxx):

foxxpledge
Her pledge is in full support of the President’s Pledge. Part of that Pledge? An expansion in US government with an entire new Council for Workforce aligned education. IF you care to see the Ed/Workforce hype video, here it is.

Closing:

Warriors, there will be more to watch for in 2019, but all the things I’ve featured above directly play into the elections of 2018, but it seems no one wants to consider how much these things do.

No matter how red or blue you vote, know that BOTH parties are directly responsible for the educratic nightmare we’re faced with daily. Neither will ‘fix’ it or ‘ditch’ what’s been years in the making. They love the attention, control, and profit too much.

We need Independent representatives. Constitutional representatives. Folks like you and I, who care, who fight, who don’t sell out to the CCSS Machine.

Truthful Banter

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’re not far from Halloween. As we’ve seen in previous years, many of us fed up with Common Core, used the season to make up flyers, treats, or similar items to raise awareness. While the awareness has been raised, it hasn’t been enough to stop Congress from continuing the overreaches into education.

halloween_flyer
We know CCSS (now called “College and Career Readiness” is a horror!

candycorn(Source for image, emphasis added is mine.)

However, this year, try something a bit different. Try a short video. No, you don’t have to create one (although you could, if you like). There’s a Monty Python skit from 1969 that will send a very vivid picture of what we are seeing in education. Wait, what? Monty Python?! Yes.

We know the shift in education is all about pigeon-holing us into jobs. Jobs some test said we’d be good at, regardless of the fact our desires may be somewhere else. Monty Python ‘nailed’ this is their 6 minute skit. If you not seen it, here it is. It’s called “Vocational Guidance Counselor”. Start the video at the 51 second time mark.

If you can’t watch the clip or you can’t stand Monty Python, here’s my summary.

A grown man walks into the guidance counselor’s office. The counselor greets him with the news that his career test results have arrived. The counselor tells the man “Based on test, we have a clear picture of you. I can say without hesitation that the job for you is 
chartered accountant.” The man responds with “But I already AM an accountant. You’re not listening, that’s what I’ve been and I want something different.” He continues, “I want something new, something exciting–something that let’s me live!” The man then describes how bored he is as an accountant.  He’s dissatisfied, feels stifled in life.

Basically he’s confined to a job he hates. Finally, the counselor asks what the man wants to do. Excitedly, the man answers with ‘lion tamer’. His eyes light up, his body language shows happiness.

Instead of finding the man a lion taming job, the counselor steers every bit of the conversation back to accounting. Systematically destroying the desire to tame lions.
The counselor is ‘slick’ with the dialogue. Tells the man he could get to lion taming via accounting, but it would be a long journey he may never complete. Telling the man “It’s a different path from A to B.” The counselor begins to patronize the man by saying, “If I call the experts and alert them to this change you want, they will challenge this into submission.” Finally, the counselor just tells the man he’s wrong in wanting to tame lions.

Warriors, this is what is happening every day in schools of all ages and in job placement centers. If it’s not the same scene, it’s very similar. What the Monty Python players hit on is sadly a stark reality in 2018.

Halloween-Ghouls-3
Much like ghouls, the CCSS Machine is consuming our schools.

Warriors, we’ve seen the workforce base shift ruin academics, we’ve seen kids burned out from all the confinement at schools. We’ve seen kids commit suicide over the dullness and sheer meanness existing in education. The ‘education’ is killing them from the inside.

Consider this, based on the skit, adults are facing this, too. Just as they are in 2018 when attending any institution where WorkKeys or similar types of career tracks are given. Why? They (the tests) force CTE (Career Tech Education), apprenticeships, internships, workforce credentials or certificates…not true diplomas!

Think about our teachers, principals, and guidance counselors. I would hope they would see this, stop and think, ‘what am I doing?’ and help us bring an end to all the CCSS Machine degradation and indoctrination.

Maybe, just maybe, it those helping spread this drab alignment could see through a truthful bit of banter that they are contributing to the demise of millions, they’d ‘get it’ and stop in their tracks.

Phase One Complete?

Warriors Against the Core, we know the “Core” encompasses not only USA education, but education across the world. The ties between the global powers which are in place and our classrooms have been exposed over and over again.

Yet, the CCSS Machine still finds ways to crank out more alignment to carry out the ‘one-way-to-learn-so-you-can-earn-while-being-a-good-citizen-who’s-tracked-for-the-greater-global-good’.

Lady Liberty Weeps 2

It’s all been a big phase to eliminate education as we knew it and replace it with something utterly foreign and harsh. The phase, however, Warriors, has been accelerated quite a bit.

A Quick Review:

Sept. 4th, 2018: I showed you the real agenda for the ‘defacto’ government educratic moves. These moves are the same ones as the globally led moves: bare minimum academics and heaps of workforce skill preparation.

Sept. 6th, 2018: DeVos signs the G20 Education DeclarationHer trip to Argentina was on our taxpayer dime to agree to the G20 (Group of 20) global education.

Sept. 18th, 2018: The in-depth look behind the new morality assessments ties to global education in big ways. This will ensnare Americans quicker than we are prepared for IF we do not arm ourselves NOW.

Next, in the phase to complete America’s shift in education to workforce prep:
Oct. 3rd, 2018, I showed you the latest initiative of UNICEF:  “Generation Unlimited” .

Also for clarity:
The G20 Declaration for education was about getting the agreeing countries to align to  THEIR plan.  UN/UNESCO framework, agenda and all gels right in with the G20 Declaration on purpose.

ung20
Warriors, this picture was from 2016. The UN’s leader was addressing the G20.


New Developments?

Warriors, since this articles, I’ve been contacted by a great education activist, Paul R.
He’s a blogger, researcher, and we’ve compared notes before. So imagine my surprise when he asked if the same folks behind the G20 agreement were the same as the UNICEF’s “Generation Unlimited”. 

In the October 3rd article I showed you the Youth 2030 was a part of the initiative. Interestingly enough is that the UN has a Youth 2030 Strategy that was launched in late September 2018.

So, going back to Argentina’s summit,  there was a meeting for the Y20 (Youth 20). On Twitter the Y20 is handled as the Youth2030.
If you look at the policies to be taken back to each of the G20 countries and implemented from the Y20 meeting, you’ll find many of the exact points from Generation Unlimited match those positions!

Warriors, going back to the G20 Summit, UNESCO’s website detailed the Y20 Meeting. To see their spin on how great the meeting was and the upcoming implementations of the agenda are, read this.

Going back to the Generation Unlimited article, you’ll see the GPE, (Global Partnership for Education) is supported by our Congress (and our tax dollars). However, from one of the newer items Paul showed me, I found the Rockefeller Foundation supports GPE, too.

(*Note: the Rockefellers, as you know, have long been aiming to restructure the USA. (Their Resilience Cities project ties into the Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA, and Social emotional learning)  ).

Next Steps For Us:

So, Warriors, it appears the evidence points to the same groups at roughly the same time carrying out well planned phases. Does GU (Generation Unlimited) equal the ‘step one’ of the G20 Education Declaration? It appears that indeed it does! If so, look at the short time span between Declaration and Initiative!

Closing:

Do we wait for what’s next to occur before we demand an END to the American dependence on UN led education? NO!!

If you’ll remember, the State Dept. had announced (2017) that by Dec. 31st, 2018, we’d be totally out of UNESCO. In April of this year, the New York Times asked a question about all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the US. Here’s an excerpt from their article, “If the United States withdraws from Unesco, it would remain a state party, having signed and ratified the World Heritage Convention.”

Write or call the White House! Let the President know you, as an American, are fed up with the globalization of our education, as well as the indoctrination and overreach which is part and parcel of the alignment. (*Note: not sure what to say? The government in Australia has sent a strong message to the UN  you could use as an idea. Their ‘we’ll take no part of socialism masquerading as environmentalism’ is brilliant.)

Call or write your U.S. House of Representatives and tell them to get HR 193 out of Committee and onto the floor for a vote to PASS it. What’s HR 193? It’s the bill which would repeal  the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 and other specified related laws. Once the House passes it, it would move to the Senate. Hopefully, from there, to the President to become law. Wouldn’t that make a midterm to remember?!

Lastly, get involved with the “Get Us Out of the UN” project. It’s been going on for 50 years, now. It’s part of the John Birch Society. Access all their resources to see how you can join in to save our nation and our education. Sign the Petition by the JBS, if you choose.

Expansion At What Cost?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, with all the attention being focused on the DC circus-like behavior, did you know the U.S. House passed a Bill late last week? This Bill (HR 6757) is a thief dressed as taxpayer savings. The thief is headed straight for the schools and our homes, too.

PA Rep. Mike Kelly introduced HR 6757 in early September 2018. As of the end of September, it’s heading for the U.S. Senate. Fast tracked Bills mean the CCSS Machine is up to something, Warriors.

The House voted 240-177 in favor of this Bill. Currently, HR 6757 is in the Finance Committee of the Senate.

Warriors, the bottom line surrounding HR 6757 is this:
Expansion of government to create the ‘end’ of school choice discrimination. How? By messing with our taxpayer dollars. (*Note: Jeb Bush, a huge CCSS Machine member has been pushing ESAs, education savings accounts for quite a while. So has Sen. Lamar Alexander. Sen. Alexander was also one of the major Congress members who promised America that ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, would give education back to the States. He lied about that, Warriors, he’s lying about ESAs, too. Lastly, Heritage Foundation and Sen. Alexander have a connection. Heritage is in full support of ESAs under the illusion of ‘school choice’.)
nochoice

HR 6757 seeks to amend the Internal Revenue Code from 1986, too. Supposedly, if enacted, it will save families TONS of money (The Bill is called the Family Savings Act).

Warriors, you may well remember that the 1980s brought us President Reagan. Reagan chose Charlotte Iserbyt to help end the U.S. Dept. of Education. She was fired instead. Mrs. Iserbyt has been warning us since the 1980s about the globalization of American education; how education savings accounts will be used as tax schemes to turn schools into workforce prep institutions.

What is Congress REALLY setting us up for with bills like HR 6757, Warriors? Look below:

couponmessage
(Source)

Our current President (Trump) and Vice President (Pence) even used school choice and vouchers as part of their plan upon coming into Office. President Obama was big on ‘choice’ and the expansion of charters.

From 2017, Freedom Project Media’s 3rd video in their series called “Alternative Education in the Crosshairs”. This segment laid out the illusion of school choice and ESAs. If you’d like to view the other 3 segments, here’s my article featuring them.

But, Wait…The Media Said HR 6757 Is Good:

Warriors, very few major media outlets reported on HR 6757’s passage by the House. The spin was sunshine and roses, too.
PR Newswire shared the Family Research Council’s article about how applause-worthy HR 6757 is.

FRCpraise
Warriors, not to discredit FRC, but the ties to the U.S. Sec. of Education DeVos and her family are woven throughout this Christian based Council.

Let’s also raise THIS question:
If we’re going to start education savings for unborn children, when will the control of their education and/or taxation of them begin?

Breibart News also shared the news, although not quite as cheerful as the FRC’s.

Warriors, we’ve seen the huge controversy unborn children involve. Do we really need to throw education into the mix, too?! Are we so addicted to seeing DC play with fire (so to speak) in relation with our children that we’d actually be alright with HR 6575? I would hope not!

From TaxFoundation.org’s website, the news about HR 6757 is not only welcome, it ties to other D.C. Legislation which impacts not only taxes, but our freedom. The article I’ve included gives you a good basic understanding of the new Universal Savings Accounts.

taxsupport
What these USAs (Universal Savings Accounts) can achieve sounds great. However, Warriors, similar systems are already in place in Canada and the United Kingdom. The U.S. House of Representatives’s Bill HR 937 (Universal Savings Account Act) is sponsored by Rep. Brat from VA. Over in the Senate Sen Flake from AZ, introduced S 2320 for USAs.

The most disturbing part? The language of these types of accounts has the government in the driver’s seat and will ‘allow’ you to open savings accounts! If we’re putting the government in charge of our savings AND education, where will our freedoms stand?!

FryingPanFire250_250

 

Look To The HR 6757 Committee Report:

Warriors, don’t simply stop at the language of HR 6757. Like the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills, The Family Savings Act has a Committee Report. If we’re going to better understand the strings this updated IRS Code will have, it will be here. While HR 6757 is a mere 98 pages, the Committee Report is well over 300 pages.

Title 3 of HR 6757 is where you’ll find the USAs, the Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) and more. However, remember, that in Congressional legislation, each part or title of a bill builds off the other titles. So, don’t simply skip to Title 3, look at Titles 1 and 2, first. Then, look beyond Title 3 for more strings.

I urge you to look on your own in the Committee Report for HR 6757. You’ll find that ‘education’ is embedded 120 times. You’ll read that these tax changes will begin AFTER Dec. 31, 2018 and extend to all the years beyond then. (*Note: you’ll see the initials JCT, this is short for Joint Committee on Taxation.)

Below are just a few of the CCSS Machine moves HR 6575 will bring to fruition:
a) play upon the DC led expansion of registered apprenticeships (will tie to CTE, Career Tech Education, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), College and Career Readiness (CCR), and more.
b) assimilates homeschooling families and pays special attention to dual enrollment
c) Page 20: education loan repayments
d) Page 44: tax sheltered annuities and education
e) Page 71: tax advantaged savings and education for the disabled
(*Note: also on Page 71, you’ll see the clear definition of 529 College Savings Plans. They are the government’s, not yours. You’ll also see Coverdell Accounts. Look especially to the section called “Reasons for Change”. This will explain WHY Congress wants to change the tax codes.)
f) Page 73: The blow by blow account for expanded 529 programs
g) Page 75: More “Reasons for Change”. From my ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) research, this is a blatant grab on homeschoolers across America. Also on Page 75, direct ties to the National Apprenticeship Act. What 529 changes will occur (costs associated with apprenticeships, especially in higher education; home education expenses; and, qualified education loans spread out over your lifetime.)

Related:

Warriors, we know there have been Bills amending IRS tax codes before. Their purpose? To act as a back door to overtaking education. Back in 2017, I showed you how S 1193 and HR 2865 were proposed to amend taxes for P3s in education. These ‘sisters’ would allow for businesses to control education. (*Note: look for items #3 and 4 in the linked article above.)

If you’d like to see Forbes’ take on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and how it may impact our unborn children, read this.

Warriors, because there is no real school choice in ESSA and because our tax codes are shifting to reflect globalism, we know education has followed suit. How? Collectivism!

Lastly, my fellow Warriors, if you think of ESAs as a ‘pay for success’ scheme (which they are being spun this way for Native Americans), you’ll get a shock. We need this type of ‘wake up’ call.

Closing:

Warriors, we knew the CCSS Machine’s grasp on education was HUGE. We knew ESSA and the mandates would level school choice (remember, those 529 Savings Programs and Vouchers were supposed to give more choice, but it’s an illusion we cannot afford to buy into).

We knew Congress overreached into education. But this? This isn’t so much about education. It’s about top-down control..of our money, how we spend it, where we save it.
It’s about limiting YOUR voice in your own life..and the lives of your children! This isn’t about academics, it’s about a boosted economy (part of why we have income and taxes).
It’s about being shackled for a lifetime of servitude. This IS not OUR AMERICA!

Will you stand up against this tyranny? Our government is stealing us blind. We MUST fight back.

Under Our Noses

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it hundreds of times that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) is a coined acronym in use to deceive us all.
Yes, I know, I’ve heard it before, “But, Lynne we’ve always had science and math. We’ve had engineering in the past and technology, too.”
HOWEVER, Warriors, the deception is that by creating an acronym with things we are familiar with, the agenda is easier to be implemented.

What do I mean? A few years ago, I wrote an article showing you how the NSF, National Science Foundation (a government funded agency of the USA), was tasked to come up with a marketing tool to ‘win’ the nation over with.

WHY? Evidence suggests their ties with the UN (United Nations). More to the point the UN’s damnable SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). STEM was (and is) the vehicle to change the course of education. At least according to the UN SDG Toolkit (created here in America). (*Note: you can access and read the Toolkit for yourselves. Look for the link under the Paragraph “From 2002”. The sentence beginning with “Tool Kit” is where you’ll find the document.)

THEN, once the acronym was selected, the President (Obama) had to be influenced. I also revealed HOW he was influenced (a PCAST Report).  (*Note: when you go back and read the embedded links, you’ll notice that the Presidential influence began well before President Obama, especially in regards to the NSF.)

pressurecooker

So, what WAS the agenda and does it still survive under our current President?

Agenda: STEM ushered in about the same time as Common Core, so no one would notice. Use STEM to create a STEM people with a STEM education for STEM jobs and a STEM economy. In other words more mastery based education, or as it’s been sold to us, competency based education (CBE). Why CBE? Skilled workers. Skilled in STEM, that is.

Is the Agenda surviving? Absolutely! In fact, President Trump is a huge supporter of STEM because it means jobs. As we know, jobs means economy.

However, Warriors, the STEM economy is NOT for America, it’s for the global good and their economy.

U.S. Sec. DeVos has done an outstanding’ job of promoting STEM, too. Since STEM is global and she has seen it as her duty to sell our nation out to global mastery based education, you can be assured STEM will be popping up in current proposed DC legislation.

STEM In Legislation for 2018 And Beyond:

Warriors, right now, we are nearing the end of Fiscal 2018. On October 1, 2018, our government begins FY 2019.Currently,  STEM is woven into several of the FY 2019 Budget Bills. I shared with you, back in August, several of the ways in which, not only STEM would live on, but the top-down educratic control.

The biggest ways STEM will survive, as well as the educratic control are apprenticeships, CTE (Career Tech Education), College/Career Readiness, and P3s (public private partnerships).

partnership

STEM’s P3 Legislation:

Warriors, if you’ve not seen what a STEM P3 would look like, consider NASA.

More recently, there’s been concocted a lesser known legislative bill.
It’s HR 5119, simply titled The P3 Act. This Act was introduced back in February 2018 and hasn’t seen much action (if any) since then. However, what the Bill contains cannot be acted upon until there’s the money to bring its agenda to fruition!

hr5119

ICYMI: The researched evidence behind the Harvard/Pearson project turned educratic overreach. You can also learn more from this archived article.

So what does the P3 Act stand for, Warriors? After all, every DC Bill has some sort of acronym to it. “P3” in this instance stands for  ‘‘Partnerships for Progress and Prosperity Act’’. It’s a fancy way to ‘dress up’ the regular P3 meaning (public private partnership). The Bill has one sponsor and 5 co-sponsors and is currently in the U.S. House of Representative’s Education and Workforce Committee. Rep. Bill Foster from IL is the sponsor. If you look at Foster’s campaign donations the U.S. Dept. of Energy contributed the most money. If you look at the committees Foster serves the nation in, Energy in among them.
(*Note: in 2017, in Foster’s district, Joliet Junior College received a NSF Grant for STEM.)

Here’s how the P3s will play into STEM and ‘education’:
1) Requires the U.S. Dept. of Ed to award grants to LEAs (Local Education Agencies) for STEM, exclusively.
2) The grants MUST be used in the following ways:
a) to improve education in K-12 and higher education institutions
b) every awardee is required to  partner with a STEM business or employer
c) internships and apprenticeships are mandated to be included
d) development of STEM curricula and metrics
e) dual credit courses are mandated
f) tutoring/mentoring in STEM, especially for underrepresented student groups
g) STEM activities and events outside the schools and in the communities are mandated for teachers and students
h) after-school STEM and summer STEM programs
i) purchase of STEM resources for STEM instruction

The U.S. Dept of Education (in these STEM grants) will pay special attention to any LEA who promotes STEM for students/teachers; uses tech based content; pairs mentors/tutors with students struggling to meet STEM benchmarks; and/or targets low-cost or free lunch eligible students.

One last mandate from the P3 Act for STEM: all grant award ‘winners’ MUST match 50 % of their award. The fifty percent must be non-federal funds and can be in cash or ‘in kind’ (which means any type of support in exchange for work or other services like free food or free housing.
(*Note: cash received in this manner is non-taxable. In kind can be claimed as a tax write off by the giver, but not the receiver unless otherwise advised.)

workforcenochoice

Warriors, when you read this 8 page Bill (HR 5119), you’ll see the familiar educratic buzzwords/phrases like ‘rigorous’, ‘evidence based’, ‘engagement’ (especially in the classroom), and my personal ‘favorite’: “high quality research”. Now the irony of this entire Bill is that is based of RECOMMENDATIONS, not objective facts.

The Bill also cites the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), which is geared for not only CCR (College/Career Readiness) aka: Common Core, but the OECD’s (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) workforce based global system of CBE (Competency Based Education).

OECD is where the horrible label of ‘human capital’ comes from.

Human capital concept in tag cloud
How the Initiative behind all that Common Core encompasses SEES us.

Closing:

Warriors, if ever there’s a time to be bucking the system it’s now. Those chilling words (at least to me) about the STEM people for a STEM nation are playing out right under our noses. Are we so stuffed with compliance and apathy, we don’t smell the stench of agenda? The agenda TAKES our freedom! The agenda erodes our education! formerusa
