What She Said…

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, would you wait 4 or 5 years to enact your household budget or a family emergency plan? No! You’d make sure once you set a budget you’d immediately begin going by it.

Not so with our federal government’s involvement with education. Nope, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was passed in Dec. 2015, we’re not far from its 5th anniversary. As federal laws go, especially for education, ESSA’s set to be re-authorized and funding extended in 2020.  

One huge bone of contention about ESSA was the phrase ‘supplement not supplant’. (This was also in ESEA, Elementary and Secondary Education Act. ESSA is the re-authorized version of ESEA.)

devosled
Supplement Vs Supplant:

Why do I bring this up, Warriors?

Because Sec. DeVos has recently completed a new non-regulatory ‘Supplement, not Supplant’ guidebook for SEAs and LEAs (State Education Agencies, usually your State Dept. of Education) and Local Education Agencies).

The bottom line: While the document is supposedly a guideline, the language in ESSA is more of a mandate. Where will we most likely see ‘supplements’ in education? Title One funding, my Warrior friends. Title One, as we know, via ESSA, was made over to cover EVERY student, not those in the most need, as Title One was originally to cover. Title One funds, via ESSA, are to be used to label and categorize mental and behavioral health of EVERY student in the community, not simply the public school system.

Warriors, this new guidebook is the result of the federal government wanting to appear ‘flexible’ to each State. We’ve seen the ‘flexibility’ of the federally run education. There isn’t any. Especially when you consider that Page 17 of ESSA clearly states how ALL education is to be:

nochoice

Supposedly, the public was allowed time to give their feedback about how federally led education was to help supplement local education, not supplant it. Yet, when you look at the guidelines (which coach SEAs and LEAs on HOW to use federal funds in ADDITION to Title One), you don’t see the public’s desire to END federal control of education, you see the CCSS Machine’s grasp tighten the funding streams, just a wee bit more.

Two questions: How does this type of ‘guidance’ even begin to appear like local control in education? How does this further illustrate our example of sticking to a family budget instead of waiting 5 years to enact it?

Two answers: Guidance, via our federal government, is a dressed up mandate to conform. In education, conformity equals the ‘privilege’ of receiving federal funds.

 
As far as our example, with 5 years between making plans and enacting them, doesn’t do anything to achieve your goals. It’s a moot point. You’d have been better off to not make a budget if you won’t work to make it happen.

If any State TRULY wanted to be free of the federal intrusion in education at ALL age levels for ALL choices, the answer is a plain as day: DON’T take the money! It violates our Tenth Amendment!!the-capitol-view-return-to-sender-snqyhq-clipart

When you read the Supplement Not Supplant Guidelines, look at the language..’May a State do x,y, and z’? If the States weren’t addicted to the federal funds, no State leader would EVER need to ask the government, “Mother, May I?!”

Higher Education’s Accrediting Updates:

As if we’ve not been insulted enough by the DeVos leadership, we also have the President’s EO (Executive Order from 2017) about reforming accrediting bodies when it comes to higher education. DeVos, at her ‘boss’s’ beck and call, has also updated (aka: reformed) higher education. Warriors, again, it’s taken 2 years for this ‘reform’ to hit the States. The U.S. Dept. of Education’s Press Release was even more insulting. DeVos has been ‘rethinking’ higher education reform.
Really, this woman with ZERO educational background?

To access the 28 Page document full of DeVos’s ‘thoughts’, go here. Below is a screen shot of the front page with added emphasis.

accredit
While I do recognize we need to rein in predatory accrediting and higher education schools, it should be a locally led charge, not a federally run dictated system.

This Accrediting document even has the same “States must report to the federal government”, as we’ve seen in ESSA. Let’s also take into account that EOs bypass Congress, therefore, bypassing “We the People”. With education, NO federal official, President Trump included, should have power to interfere.
US fed statute

With the HEA (Higher Education Act) currently under re-writing for re-authorization, we know more mandates and compliance will be forced upon the States.

Below, is a graphic image I made back when DeVos had just been confirmed as Secretary of Education. As you’ll see, Dr. King was still around. I left his name so Warriors could see the status quo in the CCSS Machine would live on.

devosarrow

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST Repeal ESSA, HEA, and even, WIOA as soon as possible. If we don’t more DeVos (or whomever’s appointed to take federal education to the next level) reforms will be visited upon us. (*Note: ESSA: Every Student Succeeds Act; HEA: Higher Education Act); WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act))
Do you think our budgets can withstand this type of tyranny? I don’t!

*Two personal notes:
a) While I will continue to do my best to keep you up to date on the overreaches of the CCSS Machine, I also am having to divide my time between education and a recent nasty turn of events concerning my neighborhood. Homes on my block are being targeted to be impacted by a road widening project involving a P3 (public private partnership) contract. We are facing a long and uphill battle to save our homes. As America marches more toward the UN’s (United Nations) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we’ll ALL see this happen more and more.

Oh, Say Can You Say?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as the 2020 election season is gearing up in hype, know that one of the main issues will NOT be education. What’s grabbing the attention of most Americans? Data. However, data comes in several forms and most definitely shows up in education!

If you missed my 5 part series on the stances of all the Presidential candidates (Rs and Ds), I urge you to take the time to read through the articles. You’ll see the technology and innovation platforms (all are ‘code’ for data mining).

currentfeds
(That’s the current federal level candidates, excluding the President. His stances are in Part 3’s article.)

statelocal
(That’s the State and Local level candidates)

Not ONE candidate, even the current President, is backing off data collection (aka: student data rape).
physicalvsdata

What’s noteworthy is the data rape doesn’t stop at the school, it is meant for EVERY American! That’s why the passage of FEPA was so vital. (FEPA is short for “Foundations of Evidence-based Policy-making Act”). I’ve written on FEPA several times, as have other Anti CCSS Warriors. There are other activists from the genres of American liberties, American finance, etc. who have also written about the connections FEPA has to our economy.

Many other Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have focused on the trails between money all everything we do on-line to create social credit. The social data mining helps speed this type of profiling right along.

What’s worse, is the 2020 candidates are riding the coattails of the global data marketing system. After all, that exactly where all this data is ending up.

But WHERE, Warriors, does the social data mining/data rape begin? How about our own back yards.

As, I often do, I’ll be showing you what I have found near me, in NC (where I live). I hope it spurs you to action to looking in your State for where the social data tracking trail is being inserted.

Big Data Just Down The Road:

Warriors, if you didn’t know it, I live in an area of NC where NASCAR racing is ‘king’. So much so, that Mooresville (where I live) is also known as “Race City USA”.  Mooresville is just north of Charlotte. One of the biggest data and banking hubs in the nation.

Those of us who live here know that several large buildings sit empty as former headquarters of this team or owner, or another one. We’ve used to seeing new logos go up as old ones come down.

timbergig

However, when a former racing car facility is re-invented as a mega data center, that’s a whole other issue. I can tell you that I’ve driven by the ‘new’ facility. The entire building and land is surrounded by a tall fence with razor wire in curled ribbons on the top. It’s a bit ironic, Warriors. Howso? When you consider the massive amounts of personal and private data being harvested (unconstitutionally), they have complete access to you, but you are to be kept out by all means.

Here’s the link to the local ‘breaking’ news from late June. 

gigam

A few years ago, President Obama made local and national headlines by coming to Mooresville to trot out the (then) latest and greatest student data mining system. (Project RED) was the name. Supposedly streamlined data collection to help students become more accomplished was the hype. (*Note: the article I embedded is from 2016 and will tie ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act to the increases in data collection.)

As Warriors, we know now that the data mining is so NOT about accomplishments, but cradle to grave tracking for workforce aligned education. While it’s true NC has done everything in its power to beef up technology in the classrooms, NC is hardly the sole State where this is happening. We’ll see the efforts grow, Warriors.

GIGA and Lenovo; Education Related?

Warriors, I can tell you that Levono is a Hong Kong global corporation with a US based headquarters in Raleigh, NC (About 3 hours east of Mooresville). IBM has a ‘historic alliance’ with Lenovo. But, can we tie GIGA and Lenovo together?

levonogiga

Yes, Warriors, we can! (Source)
IBM is also a UN (United Nations) Partner for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG #4 is Quality education for all).

5) From what I could find, on-line, GIGA has been around since the 1990s and was founded by a man named Gartner. He then sold GIGA to Forrest Research (2003). I also found a GIGA pdf document from 2018, where Gartner is still active in Big Data. (*Note: when you access the Forrest website, you will not see ‘education’ as one of the sectors served, but you will see government and health insurance. Both are tied to education, as we know.)

6) Also in the Charlotte area, is the Charlotte Urban Institute. CUI is partnering with Big Government and Big Data to manipulate education via community services. You can find the CUI among the partners of the ISC, Institute for Social Capital.
(*Note: manipulation of entire communities in the name of education is spread throughout ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act. Mostly, through data tracking.) UNC-Charlotte also has a Model UN Club. (*Note: Model UN Clubs are in all educational choices and age levels.)

Warriors, I’ll ask again, do you know what’s in your backyard about Big Data? As you can see, it isn’t hiding. It IS being used to control so much of our lives. Will we wait until in controls US 24/7 before we stop it?!

Upcycling ‘Education’

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Memorial Day Weekend is behind us. We’ve like to think the CCSS Machine’s overreaches in education are behind us, too. However, our 116th Congress has made it THEIR mission to undermine the Americans (in education, at least), yet again.

congressjob

It wasn’t enough they mocked us in the 115th Congress with bills which supposedly were to help education go back to the States, or back to the Moms and Dads.

No, the 116th has ‘upcycled’ 2 bills for ending the federal grasp on education.

upcycle

I imagine you are wondering what rock has hit me on the head. After all, isn’t ending the federal grasp on education what we’ve been fighting for? Dreaming of? Sure it is, HOWEVER, this bills are NO real solution. In fact, they BOTH extend the federal control!

Back during the 115th Congress I exposed how HR 899 and HR 1510 were NOT going to end Common Core or whatever it has been re-branded as in your State. Neither of these were going to end ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) or stop the high-stakes assessments. Neither was going to halt the student data rape or the teacher being free to teach as their students needed it.

Why were HR 899 and HR 1510 incapable of helping us as Anti Fed Warriors? The short answer: Neither repealed ESSA!

The longer answer: By closing the U.S. Dept. of Education BEFORE a full repeal of federal educratic laws like ESSA, the problems in federal overreaches are TRANSFERRED to OTHER Federal agencies and the status quo continues!

(Below was a screen image I made for the article laying out HOW the problems of federally led education were to be split up (transferred).)
cannedroaches

Warriors, I’ve stated this stark reality many times, both on air and here, on the blog. It’s not been taken very well. You must understand that the reality is based on research and the actual bills’ language NOT personal opinion or personal attacks against those who supported HR 899 or HR 1510

The same is true for the ‘upcycle’ versions of the 116th. HR 899 is STILL HR 899, HR 1510 is now HR 1930. While I did report on HR 899 earlier this year, I’ve not covered HR 1930.

The “New” Stuff:

For HR 899, here’s a screen shot from my Part Two of the “Prudence Files”:

new899

For HR 1930 (upcycled HR 1510):

HR15101930
To see HR 1930, go here. The Anti Fed Ed Warrior question you should be asking of these co-sponsors and sponsor: Where in federal law OR found within the U.S. Constitution do you see shell games as legal, responsible, or, in need of taxpayer support?

Throwing Insult To Injury:

Warriors, as if the 116th’s Congressional insults, as to how intelligent we must be to miss their ‘upcycling’ the same agenda, we have the U.S. Census claiming some news about the effect of federal overreaches in education for Americans. The claim? How many of our tax payer dollars go towards American education.

censusbucks
(Source)

Warriors,
according to the article, the most spending is on teachers. The cost of per pupil spending is nearing $13,000.00 per child. Yet, we have more and more teachers and students in worse shape NOW than ever before! Why? The CCSS Machine is grinding them down to injurious levels!

With the next ‘big’ Census set for 2020, we need to be asking tough questions of Congress on the financial strategy they are supporting here. Given that the U.S. Dept. of Commerce (Home of the U.S. Census Bureau) is set to receive funding to implement FEPA (Foundation of Evidence-based Policy-making Act) data mining activities, we also need to ask how this will play out for our families, come Census taking time.

If you missed my article in late April 2019 about the redesigned Census, I urge you to look at how it will impact your schools and redistricting them, as well as the ultra-personal questions to be answered by American citizens.

If you’ve not seen or heard how the Census measures our schools, you’ll want to read this from their email delivery system. Warriors, it isn’t ‘pretty’.

*Anti Fed Ed Warrior question: How will the Census play into HR 899 and/or HR 1930? In all the transferring of U.S. Dept. of Education programs, funds, and, all related activities, waves of injurious level insults will be visited upon Americans.

US fed statute

Closing:

Warriors, much is being used against us, as parents and taxpayers. More is being planned to harm our students of ALL ages, backgrounds, and, current school status.

We, however, have a choice: Do we accept bills like HR 899 and/or HR 1930 and HOPE we can see an end to the abuse OR do we demand Congress does a better job for We the People and repeal ALL federal education laws?

If Congress wants ‘new’ and ‘improved’ education, then they need to get out of the way. Upcycling worn out bills and CCSS agenda is a waste of our time and energy, as well as our taxpayer dollars.

It is OUR job to hold Congress accountable. It is their job to create laws which represent OUR will, not the CCSS Machine’s mantra.

freeamericans

Otherwise, Congress members do not DESERVE to represent us. Remember THAT, my fellow Warriors, come election time.

Another Freedom Sets Sail

Remember when Secretary DeVos confirmed private and home-schools receiving money from government choice programs WILL be required to follow federal regulations?

Again Warriors please share this popular and important Diva post, “Waving Choice Goodbye“, which reveals the real goal of school choice.  Diva reminds us the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) reads … “ALL education must be aligned to post-secondary readiness as laid out in WIOA.”   This removes ANY educational choice. in that it must be taught by credentialed teachers / software, curriculum must be aligned and require assessments for accountability.

~ posted by MK for the Diva


Waving Choice Goodbye

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, you’ve heard me tell you time and time again that ‘school choice’ is a fallacy. The culprit is the CCSS Machine.
The tools used to ruin ‘school choice’ are WIOA, ESSA, HEA, and other top-down federal laws. (WIOA is Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, 2014; ESSA is Every Student Succeeds Act, 2015; and, HEA is the Higher Education Act, 2008 and up for re-authorization very soon).

Warriors, the fact of the matter is ‘school choice’ is really more about “personal choice”.

However, ESSA killed that choice with it’s mandate that ALL education be aligned to the post-secondary readiness standards of WIOA.
essagoal

So, in essence, at least in education; that simple line from the 1965 Dr. Zhivago movie (fiction) has become our reality:

                “All personal choice is dead.”

drz

As we know, much of the CCSS Machine’s design uses education as the ‘change agent’ to alter our lives.
We know the control is meant for cradle to grave and encompasses where you’ll work. That’s why students of all ages are being pumped through the CCSS’s College and Career Readiness or the CCSS’s Career Tech Education or the (United Nation’s) UN’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
It’s to force our students (and eventually the rest of us) into a controlled nanny-state. (Also very present in the fictional account of Dr. Zhivago)

You may wonder why I included the UN in connection to the CCSS Machine. First, Berit Kjos and many others (myself included) have traced the Common Core State Standards back to the UN, so the UN is part of the Machine.
However, STEM is the UN’s special change agent to usher in the Agenda 2030. How?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of the A2030 and SDGs, where we live and where we work will be determined for us, largely through education and what career track we’ve been trained for (or re-trained for).
This is pure confinement for us as Americans; not the free people we were Constitutionally guaranteed, Warriors.

Contrast it to any movie like Dr. Zhivago and you’ll get a fair idea of how awful this direction is for Americans.

Since ESSA mandated WIOA in PreK through 12 grades (as well as tie it to the HEA for colleges and trade schools), how is the government helping all this come to fruition?

What Are Waivers? How Do They Kill Choice?

If you’re not sure what a waiver is in the realm of federal education, it was supposed to be a tool given to States and school districts to offer flexibility in how federal funds could be used to offer ‘quality’ education.
Sounds great, right? Especially with the CCSS Machine hype and lies about States being able to get their right to control education BACK when ESSA was made into law.

ESSA, by embedding WIOA, embedded funds for workforce. Likewise the WIOA waivers will embed education, not for academics, but competency based education (CBE).
CBE is CCSS, too.

CBE is woven into ESSA, WIOA, and the HEA…on purpose. It’s the shift from reading, writing, and arithmetic to poorly skilled labor force.

Warriors, think back to those Race to the Top Education Waivers or the ESSA Flexibility Waivers? Have you really seen any improvement in education? Have you really seen any removal of federal control or a distinct freedom your district or State didn’t have before?

There’s been none, because the Waivers are a deceptive move for MORE federal control to implant MORE shifting of education away from what we’ve known to what the global workforce needs: laborers. Our U.S. Constitution puts it another way, ‘indentured servants’. (Which by the way was also prohibited later on in the Constitution!)

WIOA Waivers Kill Personal Choice, Too:

wioawaive
(Source)

According to the U.S. Dept. of Labor, States were given a sense of freedom in how their Waivers were used, as long as they were used to improve job seeking systems for better employer ‘outcomes’.
Warriors, hang on before we go any further.

Let’s review a few flies in this ointment.
a) Since ESSA has embedded WIOA, the ‘job seeking’ is happening as young as 2nd grade in some States. The ‘job seeking’ is also found outside traditional public schools via dual enrollment, fast tracking career systems like apprenticeships, internships, early career or college schools, etc. ALL this impacts every ‘school choice’, including homeschools.
**It’s not so much the student seeking a job, as it is the job is seeking the student, before the student is capable!

b) As far as ’employer outcomes’, since WIOA, HEA, and, ESSA embedded P3s (public private partnerships) we’ve seen an insane increase in how much the corporate employer ‘needs’ have ruined academics. We’ve seen businesses with zero educational training usurp teachers for their purposes.
**States are allowing this to happen every day they receive ANY type of federal funding or P3 funding!

c) The WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative) is ‘married’ to the SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) FOR one purpose: aligned education for workforce needs. Regardless of what school (even homeschoolers) are in this system already or become a part of the system as soon as they participate in any of ‘a’ (above).
**Being a free nation, this type of data tracking is not only illegal, it’s ‘data rape’!

Warriors, as far as the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s information, WIOA Waivers aren’t so much needed now, as they were codified when WIOA was passed into law (2014). However, much like the State Plans for ESSA which needed to be submitted to the Sec. of Education (DeVos), the State Plans for WIOA are still in use (2019). These Plans are called WIOA Unified or Combined State Plans and must be submitted to the Sec. of Labor.
**By submission of those Plans, States gave full access to the federal government as far as data.

These State Plans? We, the People, can access them on the U.S. Dept. of Education’s website! Look below at the way I found this out:

I thought by clicking a phrase on the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s website, I’d be taken to another Labor page:
labor2ed1
This is where I was taken next:

labor2ed2
Followed by this ‘surprise’:

labor2ed3
(Source)

According to the U.S. Dept. of Education’s page I found this on, almost every State has a plan which has been approved by the feds. No State’s able to make its own plan for its own people or by those taxpayers. It’s all been run through the globally led workforce needs based system of control. The only States without an approved WIOA State Plan are TN, MI, MA, NE, and VA. The only U.S. Territory without one is the Virgin Islands.

I urge you to look at your State Plan. If you have none, let’s use NC’s as an example of what you’ll find that kills personal choice in education.

a) The NC Plan is 399 pages long and is dated FY 2018. NC elected to go with a “Unified” Plan which means all the alignment will come from every possible agency, program, and, angle. Those most targeted? “Under-served populations” including youth.

b) Page 3 shows the 6 ‘cores’ of WIOA. These ‘cores’ cover all age groups and population types. You’ll also find ‘partner’ programs will hinge off these 6 ‘cores’.

c) Page 4 shows the partners. In education, CTE (Career Tech Ed) covers all ages/choices; federal-to-state funding streams for TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and Community Block Grants are also intersecting with education; Veterans funding will also be involved.

d) Page 7 reveals the industry specific economic targets for the State. Somehow, this is going to bring prosperity to every North Carolinian citizen. How, those “Prosperity Zones (PZs)”
I’ve researched and shown you before. These Zones were legislatively created and embedded 2014 and 2015 (respectively). When I last wrote about the PZs it was 2018. You’ll see just how eerily deceptive these Zones are and how easily the globalization of a barely educated workforce lurks underneath.

e) Pages 11 and 12 will show you all kinds of figures on job growth per industry. Page 13 reveals that employers are ‘bullish’ on growing jobs. Warriors, we’ve seen their ‘bull’ long enough and how it’s ruining our children. On the pages which follow, you’ll see lots of CCSS Machine organizations and phrases used to create the false narrative that a) there’s a skills gap and b) the only way to fix it is via aligned education/training. For more on ‘a’ and ‘b’, go here.

p24NCplan
f) Near Page 25, you’ll see the Governor of NC mentioned. His plan combines education directly with skills. Warriors, did you know that when WIOA was passed in 2014, the increase in power given to the office of governor greatly increased? Thereby weakening taxpayers voices yet again. Many of the programs Gov. Cooper is using were already laid out before him. That he’s extending and adding to them, let’s us know regardless of politics, the global workforce/kill personal choice is alive and well.

Lastly, every bit of what’s contained in the NC Plan and others will unite data to kill personal choice in what you learn, where you work, and lots more.

Look below and see how ‘far’ we’ve come. See much ‘personal choice’? I don’t.

sdscans

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you can see how little our personal freedoms mean to our federal government. I hope you can see how little choice you really have when it comes to ‘education’.

 

 

The HC Plans

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, yesterday, I showed you how S 406 (Federal Rotational Cyber Workforce Program Act) is being fast-tracked. The article laid out for you the links between education and labor; how cybersecurity is to be increased, not only in education, but all across America. The article also showed you the federal and global co-operation where education and labor are concerned.

Below, is an old screen shot I created back from our campaign to stop the confirmation of Dr. King as U.S. Sec. of Education. Under DeVos (as Ed Sec.), all these are not only still in place, but have been increased. Especially STEM and STEAM.

fededweb

Cybersecurity is not all about protecting We the People from the hackers and whackers out there. Cybersecurity tracks all we do, on-line and, we’re finding it off-line, too.

In education, cybersecurity is passed off as ‘coding’. In the early grade levels (remember, coding is available to ALL education choices) coding is called ‘fun and games’.

codebabies

Where will cybersecurity ‘pop up’ in education and labor? STEM, STEAM, CTE, and CCR. All these connect to CCSS, too.

Warriors
, not only will be tracked by ‘human capital police’, we’re going to see their training embedded in PreK to adult education.

essagoal


The 116th HC Plans:

Warriors, not only do we have S 406, but there’s HR 1592. HR 1592 directs Sec. DeVos to create a pilot program for cybersecurity education. There are other related bills from both Chambers, but we’ll start with HR 1592. Cybersecurity Skills Integration Act is HR 1592’s title.

hr1592
Warriors, the supposed benefits of HR 1592:
a) Credentialed and employable US citizens
b) Improved infrastructure in the US (ties back to the Patriot Act)
c) CTE (Career Tech Education) cybersecurity will promote diversity in the workplace
d) Competitive grants will be used to promote regionalism
e) Ties back to ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 aka ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, 2015)
f) Tracks which students get credentialed
g) Gives Sec. DeVos $10 million dollars in all for the pilot creation and competitive grants
h) Opens the partnerships up to ‘alternative stakeholders’
i) Must meet ‘in demand’ and economic trends
j) Uses work-based learning (aka apprenticeships) Ties to WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) and the HEA (Higher Education Act) Both WIOA and HEA were embedded in ESSA’s language.
k) Targets special sub-groups of the population for workforce needs

Currently, HR 1592 is in the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee.

If you’d like to read Rep. Langevine’s Press Release on the Executive Order by President Trump on the cybersecurity workforce needs, go here. In his release, Langevine promotes HR 1592.

langevin

That EO (Executive Order) Rep. Langevine referred to? That’s EO 13800, issued in 2017.

EO 13800 called for every federal agency (which included the U.S. Dept. of Education) to comply with the framework for cybersecurity. The EO also called for increased workforce development of cybersecurity.

EO 13859 (Feb. 2019) called for increased workforce development of AI (artificial intelligence) which relates to cybersecurity.

What about the ties all this will have to not only S 406, but the Education and Information Exchange Act (both were discussed in yesterday’s article)?

The President issued a Proclamation on “World Intellectual Property Day” (May 2, 2019). In that Proclamation (#9865) the USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement) was a key piece in intellectual property (personal private information) rights.

Warriors, the cybersecurity directly relates to all this. Also, think about the global data tracking and trails which have also been discussed in yesterday’s article and other previously published research of mine.

As far as USMCA in education, that’s a huge problem in data collection/sharing!
Back in Nov. 2018, before Congress voted on USMCA, I showed you how it would embed everything the UN (United Nations) needed for the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) to thrive in the US.

Since the vote for USMCA went through, I’ve shown you other ways USMCA is not our friend.

As I pointed out yesterday, cybersecurity unites SDGs #4 and #8 (education/decent work).

1) If you missed my review of how President Trump is ‘helping’ education in the light of the upcoming 2020 Presidential race, I urge you to read this. He has not lessened the federal overreaches, nor the global ones. He has helped increase them. 


2) If you think all this cybersecurity won’t impact FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy-making), I urge you to read this. FEPA was signed into law even though much push-back was given by We the Poeple.

3) Use www.congress.gov to look up the bills related in topic to data mining, STEM/STEAM, CTE, and, cybersecurity.

For example, these bills are of big concern:

House Bills:
HR 1591 (Targets girls and underrepresented students for more STEM; amends ESSA for funding streams to increase technology); HR 1672 (Amends HEA for freedom of expression); HR 1634 (Amends WIOA for more Youth Corps) HR 1635 (Community based jobs); HR 1571 (Creates fed/State partnership, amends HEA for DREAMers); HR 1565 (Creates a new higher ed data tracking system); HR 1519 (Increases culture exchanges); House Resolution 169 (calls for increase in STEAM education); HR 1637 (Allows high schools to be come voter registration locations); HR 1652 (Improves Veteran education grants); HR 1676 (Increases STEAM and amends ESSA); HR 1678 (Creates a Task Force in the US Dept of Ed); HR 1662 (Creates a pilot program under U.S. Dept. of Ed for high tech to assist families of special needs students); HR 1688 (Fulfills federal mandates for Native American education); and, HR 1485 (Authorizes U.S. Dept. of Education to create more PreK-12th computer science).

Senate Bills:
S 1292 (Amends HEA and will use data for student loans); S 1299 (Amends ESSA for more STEM); S 1221 (Amends HEA to create innovation zones); S 1072 (Amends HEA for Pell Grants to go for job training); S 1074 (Reinstates Pell Grants for prisoners); S 1157 (Amends both HEA and ESSA); S 1119 (School lunches/anti bully); S 1168 (Amends HEA for increased religious groups access); S 1176 (Amends HEA for disabled students); S 1198 (Increases U.S. Dept. of Ed’s study abroad programming for global competency); S 1172 (Amends ESSA/IDEA for fully funded Part A of Title One); S 1153 (Makes unauthorized education data access a crime (certain types of ed data)); S 1204 (Expands the U.S. Dept of Ed and implants mental health in higher education); S 1175 (Amends HEA in technical information); S 1117 (Amends HEA and creates Career Pathways Grants); S 1203 and S 1219 Amend HEA; and, S 1137 (streamlines education/job training for environmental health workforce).

congressjob
It’s called represent ‘We the People’, not Yourself, the “sold out”!

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST be pro-active in seeing where Congress is steering our nation. So far, it’s not in any direction we ever desired. the “HC” Plans (Human Capital Plans) are wretched and MUST be stopped!

For my next article, I’ll be focusing on the federal overreaches in education where mental health is concerned to honor May as “Mental Health Awareness” Month.

“The HC Police”

**Author’s Note: An in-depth report on S 406, the White House, Congress, and globalizing education expressly for workforce needs in a nanny controlled environment.**
*********************************************************

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you heard of S 406? It’s a federal Senate Bill which just passed the Senate floor. This means the next stop is in the House. What does S 406 do?

It isn’t what the Bill ‘does’, it’s what it creates..more federal control over us.


S 406 “Federal Rotational Cyber Workforce Program Act of 2019”:

This “Act” will create an executive agency filled with a “Chief Human Capital Officers Council”. The ‘cyber’ portion refers to the federal employees overseeing cyber security, data collection, and all that intersects them.

S 406 also embeds 2 previous laws.

The Chief Human Capital Officers were ‘created’ in an Act from 2002. 

hcpolice
(Source)

Warriors, what do these Officers do? (I’m calling them the ‘HC Police’ or “Human Capital Police”.)
Basically: set a workforce development strategy; assess people and plan their future in the ‘policing’; align human resources to meet the ‘outcomes’ of the strategy; use ‘best practices’ and ‘benchmarked standards’; ‘measure the police’s intellectual capital’ and link data to performance and growth of their position.

If that sounds a bit confusing, think of it this way, those who are policing us have to be just as aligned and tested as our students. The biggest attraction for the “HC Police”? A love of data and computers. Which leads to ‘coding’. Cybersecurity thrives on coding.

Warriors, ‘coding’ is a tool of the CCSS Machine for students as young as preschool:

codebabies
(Original source, added emphasis is mine)
If you cannot read what’s in the red box, “Preschoolers are digital natives, they don’t know a life without smartphones, tablets, and computers; or cartoons on demand.” This website goes on to state that ‘coding’ isn’t just for older kids, and introduces the subject as a game.

Since coding exists to breed all kinds of workers who will track us to no end (aka ‘cybersecurity’, “IT”, etc.) there had to be a law for this special arm of the CCSS Machine’s agenda.

The Cyber Workforce? A 2015 Law ‘created’ that.

cyberwork

(Source)

Warriors, what does the existence of this law do? First, it was embedded in a budget (appropriations) law. Secondly, it set up a national initiative for cybersecurity education.
Third, because it’s a federal law which hasn’t been repealed, it’s active in 2019.

It embedded ‘coding’ as a way of life in education AND jobs. You’ll find ‘cyber’ is embedded in the budget law 428 times. ‘Education’ is embedded 280 times. Where the two intersect is in Section N. Pages 695-797 will show you the 14 ways in which education and the U. S. Dept. of Education were mandated.  

But, wait, don’t we need protection from hackers? Isn’t that the main goal of cybersecurity? Warriors, protecting us from hackers is a goal, but not as much of the main goal as we’ve been told. Here’s what else this Cyber Workforce Assessment Act set us up for:

a) Cyber Corps Scholars (and scholarship programs) Ties it to the NSF (National Science Foundation) and the National Intelligence agencies.
b) Funds for cyber (on line) upgrades under ‘school improvement’, ‘school safety’, ‘education tech support’, redesigned schools, ‘safe schools’ and Project SERV
c) Will use SSI funds (tied to Title 1 and IDEA funds/programs)
d) Will use funds for health care (also ties to ‘c’)
e) Will track and involve the IES (Institute for Educational Sciences)
f) Impacts the Information and Education Exchange Act. This 1948 law is still in existence and set the framework for international information partnerships. Those partnerships in 2019? Data sharing across the globe! (See the section below for more information)
g) Forces all federal agencies directly involved in security or related to security to be involved in data sharing and collection. Said data will be available to third parties and private contractors of the agencies choosing.

UNdatatrack

So, since all this was previously set up, how will the 116th’s Congress Bill (S 406) increase any or all of the  laws above?

From the ‘HC Police’ stand point:
a) Rotates who’s watching us and tracking us.
b) Spreads the HC Police across all fed agencies.
c) The agencies determine position for HC Police within their domain.
d) All involved determine the level of watching/tracking.
e) U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security dictates all policies and procedures (updates as needed, if needed). Parts of the policies and procedures are Career Tracks in education (all levels).
f) Uses ‘accountability’ (tracking and assessments) to be transparent.
g) Fed agencies can partner HC Police and set policies/procedures.
h) Locks in merit based employment for each rotation (180-365 days).
i) Reports activities to GAO (Gen. Acct. Office). If GAO deems program a ‘success’ HC Police rotations may be extended.
j) Will assess HC Police for proficiency in IT and skill levels completed.
k) Gives a ‘sunset’ of 5 years from time of the Act becoming law. (Means ending in 2024)

Okay, Warriors, ask yourselves this: the U.S. Government has already set us up to be spied upon via the Patriot Act, FEPA (most recently). It’s been proven that the government is a TERRIBLE privacy keeper when it comes to our data, so HOW will having national HC Police improve our privacy?  Quite frankly, it won’t improve our privacy at all. It WILL confine us even more..and it’s in the House of Representatives for their tweaking or approval!

Think how the AI and 5G technologies are already ruining education, as well as our nation.

A Blast From Our Past:

The 1948 Information and Education Exchange Act (aka the Smith-Mundt Act). If you do a general internet search for the S-M Act, you’ll see that it’s basically a propaganda law for public diplomacy. However, knowing what we know about global education overreach, look what I found from the “Information and Education Exchange Act”:

1948

“Information service to disseminate abroad information about the US”
“Educational exchange”
“Interchange of persons, knowledge, and skills”
“Rendering of technical and other services”
NOTICE Section 3!!!

Warriors, the Information and Ed Exchange Act (S-M Act) was updated in 2012. The amendments made to the 1948 version only impacted broadcasting and free speech. Section 3 remains; as do the information and knowledge combined with technology. Section 402 is also still as it was from the original.

So, the S 406 (116th Congress) gives us a window of 5 years, which means 2024. Is there a global education significance involved?

Below is a screen shot from one of my 2017 articles about the US being ‘graded’ on their adherence to the SDGs.

Warriors, SGD #8 is ‘decent work for all’. You won’t see ‘work’ or ‘jobs’ below, but jobs and work are woven into what you do see:

A Crystal Ball Future?

From the AP and Business Wire, this 2018 article lays out for you that yes, by 2024, the global data giants will have complete control of the ‘information sharing’. Yes, Warriors, these global data giants already have a great deal of control, but it will only increase. How and why? Innovations and coders to implant the innovations. The US is among the regions included in the research.

Those data giants included (not limited to) in the Research Report the article tell you about are:
Microsoft
Apple, Inc
IBM
Google
EdX (on-line colleges/universities and their courses) Features Harvard and MIT.
Byju’s (ties to Chan Zuckerburg’s Initiative) An on-line learning system for higher education high stakes assessments.
(*Note: the Research company wants you to purchase the entire Report. Prices start at $3,500.00 and go up. You can read a general overview for free. Be sure to click on “Table of Contents”. All the education alignment is in Chapter 6.)

On the AI (artificial intelligence) spectrum for the future:

aied
(Original source, emphasis is mine)

We can’t leave out the U.S. Dept. of Education’s forecast for education by 2024:

ed2024

By the way, Warriors, IHS Global, Inc. is mentioned 21 times in this Report.
If you’d like to see the 2018’s U.S. Dept. of Ed predictions for education by 2026, go here.


Briefly, by 2026-27 school year: 2 percent increase nationwide in school enrollment for PreK to 8th grade; 8% increase in high school; 33 million teachers; 5% increase in high school graduates; cost of education (taxpayer burden) $670 billion (19% increase); and the cost per pupil: $12,900.00.

The PISA (Program for International Skills Assessment) for 2024 is already in the planning stages, Warriors. The focus? Science and digital technology.

What about NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress)? Here’s their assessment area focus.
You can see the National Governor’s Board NAEP focus areas for every year up to 2024, here.

The Human Capital “Forecast”:

Well, we’ve seen what Congress is up to, read what the CCSS Machine is predicting about education and the all encompassing aspect of the UN’s SDGs in it all, so what’s the future of ‘human capital’?

2009humancapital

(Source; note that this 2015 article laid out the 4 pillars used to measure ‘human capital’.)
**********************
SHRM (Society of Human Resources Management) is a US/global group founded in 1948 (same year as the Information and Education Exchange Act/S-M Act). While I couldn’t find evidence of a direct connection, it’s not hard to see how ‘human resources’ and ‘human capital’ are intertwined.

shrm
(Source for event sponsors )
(Source for scholarship sponsors)

The Forecast you see in the screen shot is from 2013 and was predicting workforce and human capital up until 2024. There is a more recent Report, as well. However, I wanted you to see a few things in the 2013 Report.
1) look at the title highlighted in red (‘behavioral competencies’)
2) most of us will have to work well past the accepted retirement age
3) there’s a huge skills gap and jobs are being filled; most jobs are replacement positions (meaning when one person ages out, another, younger person steps in)
4) STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) in America isn’t stacking up to global counterparts
5) our economy will suffer tremendously if we don’t address 1-4.

As far as SHRM’s view on ‘workforce readiness’? You can find an entire tool kit for globally competitive skilled based workers here. If you’d like to see their 2017 State of the Society Report, go here.

**************
Another Report (Deloitte Review) from 2017 states that we are aging, but we’re also learning more and spending more time being educated. Warriors, this is a subjective view. No, we are not seeing students learn more, we are seeing them forced to have education become workforce readiness!

The stark reality, is that ‘human capital’ is part of ‘lifelong learning’!

lifelong

From 2010, this book detailed the vast amount of globalism America plans for and buys. You won’t see the U.S. Dept. of Education mentioned, but you will see the U.S. Dept. of Labor and its international membership. If you read the acknowledgements, you’ll see a few CCSS Machine member groups. Read the list of acronyms and you’ll find several more CCSS Machine member groups.

buyplan

So, seeing that the U.S. Dept. of Labor is a member of the ILO (International Labor Organization), how connected to the UN/Global ed/labor agenda are we?

ilo
Warriors, the DW4SD (Decent Work for Sustainable Development) will impact American legislation AND policy. After all, the UN’s aim to indoctrinate workforce based education depends on policy changes. What are the changes? Have we already seen this put in place or will we see soon, especially with S 406?

1) better jobs
2) internationally aligned labor standards
3) social protection
4) sustainable enterprises
5) rural economy
6) informal economy
7) labor inspections
8) what’s unacceptable work
9) labor migration
10) employer/worker organizations

These 10 ‘planks’ fit within the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Warriors, education is Goal #4.

Closing:

What are we to do, Warriors? Contact the House of Representatives and demand a ‘no’ to S 406!

We cannot settle on simply shutting down the U.S. Dept. of Education. The U.S. Dept. of Labor is JUST as unconstitutional!

DeVos’s G20 agreement calls for ed/labor to be merged. DC has also made plans to merge the two UNCONSTITUTIONAL departments.

***THIS fits precisely with, not only the UN’s SDGs, BUT the S 406 plans!***

From 1995:
Look at the previous plans for an ed/labor merger.  Obviously,  the  GAO(Gov.  Acct.  Office)  didn’t  see  a true  ‘savings’,  or  otherwise,  the  merger  would  have  happened.(Source)

From 2018, The ‘new’ ed/labor merger plan in visual form. NPR reported it as a money saving move. The White House sold it as a way to help the country improve.


Warriors, this still doesn’t END federal (or global) overreaches in education, it simply shuffles the deck. Instead of 2 unconstitutional federal agencies, one MASSIVE one.
Just after that White House news, Warriors stepped into action. There was a petition to halt merger plans! There was push-back!!
The image below is from that push-back:

Do you like that America is planning AND paying for globalization? Do you like seeing Acts like S 406 or other Administrative moves to ruin education?
If not, speak up, speak out! 4kusa

 

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.

evil-sister-quote
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.

demob

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.

geep

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.)

schoolcensus

(Source)

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’
