Oh, my dear anti CCSS Warriors, I am SO glad you are still here! We’ve had time to shake the surprise off our faces, get our hearts back to a more healthy rhythm, and, recognize those members of Congress who stood up for our students and voted “NO”. Thankfully, some of the Senators listened to US, the unpaid, non CCSS aligned families out there. However, like the House of Representatives, we’ve seen those in the Senate who chose to absolutely ignore us, vote against us.
Instead of heeding the plethora of TRUTH we, the citizens, the very ones they were elected to REPRESENT, both chambers of Congress, by voting to pass HR5 and S1177, have turned a deaf ear to we the people. In short: betrayal. Yes, a very strong word, however. After researching so deeply into the national standards (that’s what they were before the brand name), I think I’m qualified to make that strong of a statement. However, I am far from alone in this reality. Many before me have stated words with this meaning.
Now, please know that Common Core will NOT be going away. We’ve been able to prove several times over how it isn’t. Congress bought the lies of the litany of groups they sought out, yet, the very constituents they SERVE, were left alone. We spotted that every time any of the Congress members who dared to utter ‘we’ve had input from all stakeholders’. Missed it? Visit the anti CC Facebook groups, or log onto Twitter and read the tweets from an anti CC warrior’s reaction to such an ego-inflated statement. Here’s just one of the few which scrolled across my screen. Remember, this “Total Truth”, the Senate took 1 week to ‘debate’ S1177. That’s multiple days and many Senators stating how many involved +stakeholders weighed in. Yeah, that’s right Senate..the “Real Total Truth” is: not the Parents opposed to CCSS. Even AFTER countless hours of contact and interaction with you!
Believe me, there are plenty more comment like that. Every one of them are absolutely true. I’m not weighing today’s article down with samples. You know where to look, beginning with in the mirror.
More “Total Truth” from yesterday’s melee in D.C.:
The President of the CCSSO released this via Twitter, see if you can spot her “Total Fallacy”:
Speaking of the CCSSO, 1/2 owner of the Common Core Standards, and heralded by Sen. Alexander as one of the main groups which help write S1177 (will give you that information in a bit), broke the news of the S1177 passage 4 minutes before the final vote count was given by the Senate! How do I know this? While watching the live webcast and monitoring Twitter, I noticed the following appear. What struck me as ‘rat like’ was the final count hadn’t even been announced. Talk about a ‘tlpped hand’.
If you’d like to see the press release given by the CCSSO: http://www.ccsso.org/News_and_Events/Press_Releases/CCSSO_Applauds_Senate_Action_on_ESEA_Reauthorization.html
Did the Senate’s log for July 16th verify CCSSO’s preemptive tweet? According to http://www.dailypress.senate.gov/, the time stamp for the final vote was 2:39 pm. I’m sure somewhere out there is a exact time stamp for all those tweets. Compare the 2 for yourselves and see the “Total Truth” revealed. Grounds for a Constitutional lawsuit? I think, the entire CCSS Machine’s tyranny is grounds. If you know a Constitutional lawyer, share this with them. If ever we anti CCSS warriors needed a loophole, we may just be staring the best one in the face. However, I’m not a lawyer.
For more “Total Truth”, including word for word scripts (so you can read all those shout outs to the pro CCSS groups given on the Senate floor/passionate speeches by those who dared to say ‘not on my watch’) See: http://www.congress.gov/congressional-record#daily-digest-highlights-senate (*Note you can also access the House of Representatives same information from this website.) If you want only the ‘highlights’, they are there, if you want to see everything that was said surrounding that highlight, simply click on the page number (will be highlighted in blue). Since it’s on record, it’s 100% official.
One Last “Total Truth”:
For quite some time, I’ve been giving you researched and documented proof that CCSS was embedded in post secondary education. You’ve also been privy to the fact that CCS/CTE/CCR (Common Core Standards, Career and Technical Education, College/Career Readiness) is thoroughly embedded in the upcoming bills for “College Promise Act” and the “HEA, Higher Education(re-authorization) Act”. Thanks to the gloating of one U.S. Senator in response to another U.S. Senator, we have it on audio/video that Sen. Alexander states “HEA” is next. However, we knew that!! My point, we’ve got plenty of work to do, but thank the good Lord, we’ve got a bit of a lead. Let’s use it!
Remember, one of the main agenda items for the CCSS Machine is birth to grave control of education.
Finally, hang on to the fact that HR5/S1177 haven’t been approved by their opposing bodies OR signed by the President. Roll up those sleeves, everyone..we’re in for a bumpy ride!
