Anti Fed Ed Warriors, with the dedicated shift in American education AWAY from academics and TOWARD workforce alignment, have you ever wondered about all those plentiful jobs out there? Where IS‘there’, anyway? What proof do we have that there truly are so many more jobs than people? Why aren’t we seeing these jobs in our backyards?
Supposedly, America’s doing SO well economically and labor wise. The CCSS Machine has worked overtime to strike a tone of ‘freedom’ and ‘booming bank accounts’. Trouble is, those bank accounts are NOT yours and mine. They aren’t even our children’s, neighbor’s, or, friends. Those booming bank accounts are the CCSS Machine’s corporate minions. From DC, you’ll hear the strike of ‘freedom’ described as a ‘vibrant economy’. Again, the vibrancy ISN’T for us, it’s for ‘the greater good’ and unimportant national standings.
Why would I say ‘unimportant’? Because when it comes to importance, people; their lives, liberty, and freedoms are FAR more important than how fantastic your nation looks on paper.
For the rest of today’s article, we’ll see if we can find some answers to all these questions.
Below is an older visual I created to show that no matter what ‘freedom’ and ‘economic greatness’ is being reported/promoted, this is the reality striking us all:
“Outsource, Insource; Upwork, Downwork”:
Warriors, recently I was made aware of an on-line company (Onlinejobs.ph)
offering cheap labor.
The slick and quick ad stated that if you’re too busy but have lots of stuff to do, simply hire an on-line PA (personal assistant). Sounds great, right?! I mean, c’mon, how many times have you or I felt we were too busy and needed extra help?! There are some catches, however. First, the pay mentioned in the ad. A measly $3.00 per hour. Secondly, the extra help is located in the Philippines. So, naturally, whatever ‘stuff’ you have which requires extra help will need to be digital. This means data trails. Trails which can be hacked and tracked. (*Note: to see all the facts you see called out in the visual above, click on each of the tabs when visiting the main website.)
Is this type of virtual employment new? Hardly. Called “Upwork” back in the 1990s, it’s been re-branded ‘virtual assistant’. To be even more insulting, try the ‘personal virtual assistant’ or ‘outsourced employment’.
How does all this play into the ESSA mandates for education? The CTE (Career Tech Education), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), and, CBE (Competency Based Education, also known as Outcome Based Education).
If you’ve heard of ‘coding’ in education, you’ve hit the nail on the head. This direct assault on our classrooms is grooming our kids to be poorly paid minions for others, not free thinking, independent Americans!Cybersecurity is also a ‘coding’ job many are being groomed for, both in public K-12 systems, as well as community college courses, dual enrollment, and hybrid classes.
The bottom line is that all this type of outsourcing, on-line virtual garbage is this: We ARE Human Capital, not respected human beings!!
1) To see the ‘comprehensive’ pay scale for the Philippines and virtual assisting jobs, go here.
2) To see a comparison chart for Upwork vs Onlinejobs.ph, visit this site.
3) The IRS isn’t happy about tax-free employment, virtual assisting.
4) On-line jobs in the US, look here.
5) The Philippines is a UN (United Nations) member-state nation. As such, all the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) will be in place. Just like in America. SDG #8 is ‘Decent Work for All’. If you go back and look at the Onlinejobs.ph site, under the “education” tab, look at the way the Filipino citizens are described. Will our citizens be described like this in the future?!
Warriors, how do we fight back? We must repeal ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)! We must repeal WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act)! We must halt the re-authorization of the HEA (Higher Education Act).
How do we do that? Remembering We the People far outnumber our DC Administration. As that reality is brought out, use it to protest, petition, and, revolt against this overreach which not only is conditioning us to be totally government dependent, but pin our kids down to mindless jobs.
We need to follow full repeals with carefully planned extractions of ALL unconstitutional agencies in DC. The U.S. Dept. of Education is only ONEof them, not the ONLY one. The others INCLUDE the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services as well as the U.S. Dept. of Labor!
(*Note: no mergers have taken place, officially, but by merging and not extracting unconstitutional agencies will only extend the overreaches.)
Warriors, all 3 of these (Ed, HHS, Labor) were given HUGE power increases in ESSA for one reason: grooming students for human capital. A commodity to be bought and sold; controlled and dependent. This is NOT the future we want for our children, or our nation!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, no doubt the headlines are causing your heads to feel like ‘Holy cow! When will this end?’ I totally understand. While D.C. is ‘rocking’ and Hollywood is ‘knocking’, there IS a lot happening.
However, as we’ve seen before, distractions of these kinds usually play out while the ‘real story’ is muted somewhere in the background.
Warriors, it’s blurring lines. Lines of truth; lines of communication; and, lines of information.
So, has the ‘real story’ already happened and we don’t know it? It’s possible. It’s also possible the timing isn’t right.
Here’s one ‘story’ I think may be PART of the D.C. reality being buried by the headlines.
Blurring Education Lines:
Flashback to 2017, Supreme Court’s ruling for Trinity Lutheran Church (Columbia, MO) vs Comer (MO’s Director for the MO Dept. of Natural Resources).
Warriors, the Church had a preschool and a day care center. At that time the Center did carry the Church’s name but was a separate entity. Then, the Center and Church merged. The Center was now on Church property. The Center’s ‘non profit’ status stayed with the Center, even on Church grounds. When the Center wanted to upgrade their playground, they applied for a grant given by the MO Dept. of Natural Resources. The Center was denied because it was not just a Center, but a Church. The Church (and the Center) sued in Federal Court. The Center/Church claimed its freedom of expression (under the First Amendment) had been violated. The Dept. of Nat’l Resources had a strict policy that churches didn’t qualify for the type of grants being offered (based on MO law that no government aid for funding could go to any religious group or church).
If you want to learn HOW it ended up in the U.S. Supreme Court, you can read the 55 page syllabus, here. How did the case end? “The Court today reaffirms that “denying a generally available benefit solely on account of religious identity imposes a penalty on the free exercise of religion that can be justified,” if at all, “only by a state interest ‘of the highest order.’”
March 2019, DeVos’s Lines:
On March 11, 2019, the U.S. Dept. of Education released thisnews(added emphasis is mine):
(*Notes: a: The2010 Congressional Concernswill cite religious funding issues on Pages 5 and 6. b) Back in 2015, I exposedCAPE’s ties to the CCSS Machine, so it’s really NOT that surprising Sec. DeVos was speaking to them. Appearances like that help blur lines frequently. c) CAPE did publish adocumentexplaining how ESSA was their ‘friend’. Religious groups will be able to use Title One funds for services, under ESSA. d) In 2014, the hiddenCCSS assessmentsused in a Catholic private school.)
The Hill’sarticle on DeVos’s lines at CAPE, share that she will amend, stop, or look over existing religious education funding and eligibility programs. The article also ties into her family’s ties to Hillsdale College (where they support K-12 charters as public-private choices). Higher education will also be lumped into the religious relaxing of lines.
So what’s the REAL Story? By blurring these lines, the federal government will use the ‘school choice’ tax credits and/or ESAs (education savings accounts) to have free access to religious based schools. This will also bring in federal overreach and alignment BY being allowed into the religious schools at ALL levels. It means that whatever freedom your religious school offers will now be compromised!
HOWEVER, the OTHER, untold part of the story is this, by Christian based groups claiming their 1st Amendment rights need to be upheld, so do all those other groups considered to be religions. For example, the Church of Satan fought for AND won it’s First Amendment rights to be included in education.
This also brings up Muslim faith based groups. What if you don’t want Sharia practices in education? Too bad, under this ‘relaxation’, the door is now open. What about those Post-Modern or Marxist based religions? These too.
So, by relaxing your education stance for one group, means EVERY group considered BY The Dept. of Defense, The IRS, etc., can be lumped in as well. In 2017, the U.S. Dept. of Defense announced that the list of federally recognized religious groups in the US was around221. (*Note: The IRS, the Dept. of Defense and several other U.S. federal agencies overreach into education due to the CCSS Machine and violations of the U.S. Constitution.)
Topping the list, at least in the Hill article, Humanism. Earth-based worship was also pointed out in the article.
Warriors, this openly blurs the lines so that all the UN’s SDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals) earth-based, humanistic views are more accessible and easily embedded! Warriors, look at what the U.S. State Dept (or Dept of the State) has in place for religious activities:
Almost reading like the State Dept’s Plan is straight from the pages of the UN, theNational Strategyis another open line for globalism. The underlying story here, is that religion will be watered down and homogenized so that everyone will be ‘at peace’.
So, why would a seemingly ‘righteous line’ carried by Sec. DeVos cause us pause? DeVos has proven she is a globalism disciple repeatedly. By using education as a bully pulpit to align American education to the UN’s workforce based ‘birth to death’ treadmill of ‘lifelong learning’ is not only egregious or unpatriotic, it’s criminal!!!
Blurred Lines for Title 9:
This 2019 relaxation DeVos is carrying out will not only impact Title One funding, but Title 9. In 2018,Real Clear Educationstated that religious exemptions in the funding were all but left out of the headlines. How will this impact private religious schools? Federal funding. Warriors, if we’re going to see one side of the line protest about separation of church and state, WHY are private religious schools taking federal funds?! To see the latest on the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Title 9 religious information, gohere.
How long will it be before we need government permission to worship God?
ESSA/Immigration Blurred Lines in Education:
Long before DeVos uttered her 2019 edict for blurring lines, plenty of intersection was going on between church and state, in education.
In 2017, I gave you an update on CAPE and theblurred linesbetween State Social Services and churches. In response to that article, camethis one where it was pointed out the federal government funnels refugee and immigration funds through churches AND it’s used in educational classes.
After ESSA was passed, I warned you of the passages and mandates that would overreach into religious education. Themental health overreacheswill include faith based groups. How private education ofEVERY type(including homeschools) would be assimilated.
Bring Up This Line With Your Pastors:
Warriors, in 2018, Ichallenged Pastor and every Americanwho cares about preserving our religious freedoms with some hard hitting questions. Where will they draw the line as shepherds when it comes to their flocks and the overreaches into education? The CCSS Machine has already crossed the line into the church’s territory. The question is what will the American church do to throw the Machine back over that line?
Breaking News Anti Fed Ed Warriors, released earlier today was the President’sBudget for FY 2020.
You can access the entire 150 page document, here.
The title of the Budget “A Budget for a Better America, Promises Kept, Taxpayers First”.
Warriors, ‘education’ is embedded in the Budget, 89 times. The U.S. Dept. of Education section begins on Page 29 and seeks a mere $62 billion dollars in taxpayers funds. The section is quick to point out this is actually a reduction from FY 2019, but it’s still a huge price tag for something that is 100% unconstitutional!
Contrary to most citizen’s view, education funding via federal budgets is not only within the U.S. Dept. of Education’s section. I found it in several other federal agencies as well. Many of which are just as unconstitutional as Education.
From the President’s Management Agenda, push 3 focus areas, technology, data, and, the workforce. (Page 7)
Page 8 shows a new federal arm of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, called the U.S. Federal Data Service. Also, FEPA (Foundation of Evidence-based Policy-making Act) implementation will begin in FY 2020. (More on how this will happen is on Page 11.)
Also from Page 8: “The Federal workforce represents a critical part of realizing change. Failure to address fundamental workforce needs will render other modernization work ineffective. This goal reflects a transformational shift in strategic human capital management based on three pillars: 1. Actively Managing the Workforce: Improving employee performance management and employee engagement;
2. Developing Agile Operations: Reskilling and redeploying human capital resources; and 3. Acquiring Top Talent: Enabling simple and strategic hiring practices.”
Page 9, data driven formulas to use on grant funding from the federal government.
SNAP funding (under the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture) is used in education. (Page 16) You’ll also find rural investments (internet connectivity). Many of the education overreaches in rural investments will be found here.
Page 19, the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s 2020 Census. This new and ‘improved’ Census will data mine more than ever before. The data is used in education grant funding formulas.
Page 23, the U.S. Dept. of Defense’s portion begins. You’ll find every branch of the Armed Services aligned to CCSS, CCR, and, STEM.
From the U. S. Dept. of Education’s section:
Page 35, the U. S. Dept. of Energy, will not specifically mentioned, STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) will be a huge part of the US DoE. You’ll also find that much of the energy will be funneled through the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Page 39, U. S. Dept. of Health and Human Services section begins. HHS received a huge increase in power over education via ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). Much was for mental health wrap around services carried out via SEL (social emotional learning). Much of this will encompass Medicaid funding, too (See Pages 44 and 45).
Page 40, the expansion of behavior health workforce will cost $221 million dollars. For Mental Health Community Block Grants (which will apply to schools) is $723 million.
For Certified Community Behavioral Health Centers, $150 million. For Children’s Mental Health Services (includes young adults), $125 million and another $133 million for school violence prevention.
Page 42, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is referred to for its impact upon health care. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act can be tied back to education as well.
Page 47, for those concerned about vaccines (as yes, these impact education, too), you’ll want to read here. Lots of money for the global health agenda.
Page 48, TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) funds also are used in education formulas for the States. Also on Page 48, funding for Head Start and Child Care and Development Block Grants (found in ESSA) are maintained. “The Budget also proposes a $1 billion one-time mandatory investment for States to build the supply of care and stimulate employer investment in child care.”
Page 49, U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security begins. This Dept. handles a tremendous amount of student data, as well as data on every citizen. Cybersecurity is part of STEM, so education will be impacted here. (On Page 52, you’ll see the U. S. Secret Service will become enlarged.)
Page 53, begins the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. This impacts education, too. You’ll also find lots of UN SDGs and other overreaches are funneled through this agency. The 2020 Presidential Budget actually wants to eliminate the Community Development Block Grants (which are in ESSA). We’ll have to watch this particular nugget to see if Congress allows this.
Page 54, those receiving HUD funds who are not elderly or disabled must either work (training counts) or participate in some educational activity, at least 20 hours a week.
There’s also $75 million for Family Self-Sufficiency Funds and $15 million for Jobs-Plus. These will tie back to WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), as well as ESSA and the HEA (Higher Education Act).
Page 55, centralized holistic community hubs for wrap-around services for families and creating “Opportunity Zones”. These will connect to 21st Century Community Learning Centers (in ESSA), more than likely. (On Page 33, these are set to be eliminated, but as we saw with previous Pres. Trump budgets, Congress kept the funding open. This will need to be watched.)
Page 57, U. S. Dept. of the Interior begins. DoI has an arm called BIE (Bureau of Indian Education). BIE is directly impacted by the educratic takeover.
Page 61, U. S. Dept. of Justice section. Justice also overreaches into education via data tracking, drugs, and oversees our national security. Parts of our National Security Plan are centered on the United Nations declarations, not the U.S. Constitution. The amount of $754 million is earmarked for CTE (Career Tech Education) and re-skilling inmates. On Page 63, Project Safe Neighborhood will impact education and our 2nd Amendment. STOP School Violence will receive $100 million (also Page 63).
Page 65 will take you to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. As we well know this definitely overreaches into education. When ESSA was made into a federal law, this Dept. received an increase in power, as well. Expanding apprenticeships ($160 million) will boost the ‘earn as you learn’ platform of ‘closing the skills gap’. Page 66 expands the CTE in K-12th funding as well. America’s workforce centers and programs will be streamlined (no doubt through the U.S. National Council for the American Worker) Veterans and Job Corps will also be included in the re-skilling efforts and ‘earn/learn’. (On Page 85 under the U. S. Veteran Affairs, you’ll find educational assistance.)
Page 71, The State Dept. and other international programs. State Dept. involves education via USAID and is tied to the UN. There is quite a bit of information here, if you are concerned with international financing and global health agendas.
Page 77, U. S. Dept. of Transportation begins. Here’s another agency which will tie to the UN and the SDGs, education, and STEM.
Page 81, The U. S. Treasury. This will directly tie to education via student loans (Pages 83 and 84). Lots of international finances and investments will be funneled through this agency. Streamlined IT (Internet Technology) to collect more data is in the works, especially via the IRS.
Page 97, NASA begins. NASA is a huge CCSS and STEM aligned agency. The President has requested $21 billion. You’ll find an increase in P3s in this section. (public private partnerships). STEM funding will also be shifted from ‘low priority’ to “high priority”.
Other pages and how they connect:
Page 21, under the U. S. Dept. of Commerce, some NOAA education programs are set to be eliminated. NOAA will tie to CCSS and STEM.
Pages 30-33, under the U. S. Dept. of Education, school choice tax credits (for individuals and corporations) and scholarships, State-authorized nonprofit education scholarship-granting organizations (SGOs) to operate, especially for CTE, dual enrollment, and other educational related activities. Expanding school choice ($650 million), expanding public charter schools ($500 million) and $150 million for public magnet schools. This “Budget invests $50 million in funding for districts participating in the Title I student-centered funding pilot. The pilot program would help districts transition to more transparent funding systems that enable Federal, State, and local funding to follow the student to the public school of his or her choice.” Title One will receive $15. 9 billion dollars in funding. IDEA funds will be $13.2 million. A whopping $226 million for education related development. For School Safety National Activities, $200 million. For Education Innovation and Research, $300 million. HEA (Higher Education Act) modernization efforts geared for its re-authorization are not given a figure, but types of efforts are included. Streamlining data flow between Ed and the IRS. For CTE expansion at State levels, the President’s Budget asks for $1.3 billion. Federal work study programs will be refocused on workforce development.
Page 94, The Environmental Protection Agency will tie to the UN’s SDGs, STEM, and school health.
Page 102, under the Small Business Administration, (a big CCSS Machine arm for the government) Entrepreneurial Development and Education ($101 million). This includes counseling and mentoring for all ages.
There you have it, Warriors. The next step for this Budget is Congress. See something here which concerns you or troubles you, contact your Senator or Representative. Show them HOW each of the items you are vexed by ties to the CCSS Machine and/or globalism. As far as ‘bettering America’ I didn’t see it. Taxpayers first? No, missed that, too.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s my final article of the recent series I have published looking at the 116th Congress’s educractic BS.
In today’s article, a look at S 5 (Education Opportunities Act) and HR 425 (Supporting Veterans in STEM Careers Act).
S 5 is sponsored by Sen. Rubio (FL) and is 15 pages long. There are no co-sponsors. Currently, S 5 is in the Senate Finance Committee. HR 425 is sponsored by Rep. Dr. Dunn (FL), there is one co-sponsor, Rep. Lamb (PA)
Warriors, we know Sen. Rubio is an educrat. My articles on his alliance with the CCSS Machine are here. Sen. Rubio’s current committees list. Recent campaign backing for the Senator included Goldman Sachs and Bank of America. Two huge CCSS Machine member organizations.
Rep. Dr. Dunn’sissues do not include education, but he does list veterans. Rep. Dr. Dunn is on the Veterans Affairs Committee and the Committee for Science, Space, and Technology. Rep. Lamb lists education and veterans as two of his issues. Rep. Lamb is the Vice Chair of the Veterans Affairs Committee. He is on the Science, Space, and Tech Committee, too. Rep. Lamb’s recent campaign donors include the NEA (National Education Assoc.) and at least 3 universities tied to the CCSS Machine.
What S 5 Says/Does:
Here’s the link to theBill. It’s called the Educational Opportunities Act.
1) S 5 will amend the IRS Code. The purpose is to allow tax credits for elementary and secondary tuition.
2) Eligible ‘scholarship granting organizations’ are defined by Section 501 (C3) and 501 (A) of the IRS Code. This means that the organization is tax exempt and that it’s only purpose is to provide scholarships to eligible students.
3) Eligible students are defined as person enrolled in a school defined in the IRS Code Section 530 (b3B) and Section 4(B) as well as below the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services’ poverty line.
4) Eligible schools are ones which charge tuition, comply with all State laws and agree to annual reports. Part of the data collected will be off the nationally normed, State aligned tests and assessments. Page 8 does say no personal identifiable data will be shared, but Warriors, how many times have we been sold that lie? Consider, also, with the recent passage of FEPA, the IRS’s data will now be up for grabs by data trackers.
The scholarships given cannot go to pay for anything at a school or in a school system in public education.
5) Reports and data will be fed to the U.S. Dept. of Education’sInstitute of Education Science, (IES). IES, is a huge CCSS Machine member organization which shares student data freely. In 2016, I showed you how ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) would have IES pop up in homeschooling data mining. Also from 2016, howIES is woven throughout more than we thought.
6) Corporations will also be included in the tax credits. The credits cannot exceed $100,000.00.
1) HR 425 puts the NSF (National Science Foundation) as the directing entity for the veterans program. The program? It’s a veteran outreach plan. Warriors, I’ve shown you before, many times, how the NSF is tied to the United Nations.
I can think of no greater insult to our veterans that to assimilate them into a global minion. That’s so anti-American.
2) Look at how the NSF will manipulate us and data track our vets:
3) Any research and/or leverage used for the veterans plan will be based off the NSF’s Report called the “National Science Board Indicators”. This will be totally subjective, not objective. It’s also going to be geared toward the global workforce. Here’s the 2018 Report.
4) HR 425 updates the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship to include veterans. This scholarship is expressly for STEM teachers and has been made into a public law (2002).
If you are not familiar with the name Robert Noyce, that’s okay. Maybe you recognize his contribution to the computer, called Intel. I’ve written about the Robert Noyce Foundation before.
5) Also amended is the NSF Act of 2002 concerning the Teaching Fellows and Masters Program.
7) A new government interagency will be established with HR 425. It’s to be called the “Veterans and Military Families STEM Education Interagency Working Group”. This group will use federal resources to transition veterans and military spouses into STEM careers.
This interagency will close after 5 years after this Bill becomes law, should it.
Connected to this is the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s Director making sure all STEM strategies in HR 425 are carried out. The Director is also known as the “President’s Science Advisor”.
Many have argued that President Trump is dedicated to getting all parts of the US out of the UN, but I ask you to consider how when he wholeheartedly supports STEM.
HR 627, is also STEM legislation which broadens the NSF in all education. STEMconnects to Smart Cities, also a part of the UN’s agenda. ESSA upped the CCSS/STEM ante to gel with the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
The power shift in DC didn’t end the educratic BS we’ve grown so accustom to seeing. Review or discover how deep the STEM ‘love’goes in DC.
Warriors, I hope this series has helped spur you on to keep fighting to save our nation, as well as our schools. Will the 116th Congress continue to pump out harmful legislation? Absolutely. Will I keep you updated? You know I will.
I’ll be back on the blazing trail next week.
In the meantime, share the Series with your leaders and concerned citizens.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I was recently a guest of the Exceptional Conservative Network’s TV show. During that broadcast, audio technical difficulties prevented my message from being heard, or so I’m told.
****This article is a written summary my notes for the interview.**
If you’d like to learn more about the EC Network, visit here. Thanks:
I’d like to thank all of you who contacted the President to Veto HR 4174(Foundations in Evidence Based Policymaking Act). For whatever reasons, our voices, though many, were ignored.
Below is a screen shot of consequences we now face, due to the signing into law HR 4174 (FEPA) has in store for We the People:
HOW will FEPA immediately or chillingly effect us as Americans?
1) This might shock you, but all our civil rights (how we are treated) are assigned by our government. All our civil liberties (our freedoms) are also assigned by the government.
In the Declaration of Independence we were guaranteed the right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness as WE chose. FEPA removes OUR guarantee to live our lives as WE choose. It certainly removes all liberty, as well as freedom. It certainly will impact how we are treated. (Source)
1a) How does FEPA cause this? Life-long tracking of your life, your attitudes, values, beliefs, how much income your family makes, where you live, do you own a gun, do you beat your family, do you drink or smoke? Do you go to church?
Think of it this way Warriors, whatever data snooping the Patriot Act created on every American (thus helping gut FERPA, Family Education Rights to Privacy Act, as well as the SLDS and WQDI(Student Longitudinal Data System/Workforce Quality Initiative, respectively); FEPA makes it look like sissy stuff.
Why? The goal in the shift to erode America as the ‘land of the free/home of the brave’, has long been in place. It’s not been about our choice in life, especially for our students of all ages, for quite some time. The reason FEPA is SO evil, is in the systematic destruction of America, education is the choice weapon and data mining (aka: student data rape) has been the key trigger. FEPA, along with 2 others (HR 2434 College Transparency Act; HR 3157 Student Privacy Protection Act)were introduced during the 115th Congress. Each of these could work together or stand alone all have life-long data tracking (aka: open data) built in. The Big Biz, Big Tech, and Big Government have long been after our information of ALL kinds, FEPA now allows that…nationally, via a single, unified system. **The Bigs (as I call them) all feel we have NO right to our privacy and that it all belongs to them. Is is because they care about us? No, it’s for control and money.
Helping set up the FEPA for passage? Look below:
2) The Bill of Rights in our Constitution (1-10) find the most negative impact from FEPA.
The First Amendment is centered on freedom of speech. However, only the speech is protected. Expression isn’t. So, with FEPA’s constant tracking our every move, our every word, HOW we express ourselves will be closely monitored. That removes OUR choice of expression.
2a) The Second Amendment has been the most targeted, in my opinion, in recent history.
I’ve shared with you in the past how the CCSS (Common Core State Standards, rebranded as CCR, College/Career Readiness) have used anti-gun control as a key point in curriculum used. Add to that the ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act’s mandate for ‘safe schools’ where not only anti-2nd Amendment rhetoric is attached, but every student must be mentally evaluated. FEPA will tie to the gutted FERPA and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) in these mental evaluations, thus taking personal private data from your students with or without consent. (*Remember, since FEPA creates a data track for every one, student or not, you too, will be mentally evaluated and labeled accordingly.)
3) Our 4th Amendment states no unreasonable arrest or search can happen. FEPA guts this off the bat. How? By having our lives and homes constantly monitored, the government is already inside, so no searching will be needed. As far as arrest, with our other rights muted or removed, we could be found guilty of any number of activities. These by, default, plays right into the 5th and 6th Amendments concerning self-incrimination and our rights if we are accused. FEPA will assault these, too.
4) Amendments 9 and 10 stand to cause the most havoc in State level government. Nine assures us any right NOT listed in the Constitution is safe. Ten, of course assigns State’s rights concerning their citizens. State’s rights have already been eroded by federal laws, programs, funding, etc. FEPA will remove any State power and assign it to the federal level. How? That single, unified system of control.
5) Amendments 14 and 16 lay out citizenship rights and federal income tax. Since FEPA will use personal data (expanding it to non-census data, too) from the Public Private Partnerships (P3s) such as the FBI and Amazon. The IRS has now been included in that expansion. So have the HHS, ED, and others.
federal agency or funds you have used their services or received money from automatically will be used to tag you in the FEPA system. The more tags, the more compartmentalized you are until you are pigeon-holed into a certain sector where the appropriate entitlements and government programs will best suit you. Somewhat tied to the taxation is the 24th and 26th Amendments.
Those Pesky, “Unintended” Consequences of FEPA:
1) Whom you associate with will be watched and monitored. 2) Your privacy is of no concern, even in your home and especially via all the “Smart Devices” you use. Big Tech is rejoicing FEPA is law, the data is all theirs, anyway (or so they believe) 3) If you find yourself in need of a jury, who determines those who make up the jury? 4) The freedom to travel where you wish, as you wish may become restricted, due to association, taxes, tolls, or for any arbitrary reason the government designs.
5) The freedom to religious worship, is at stake, too. 6) “Evidence Based” is code for collection of data. 7) FEPA bastardizes the weakened Net Neutrality, so everything on-line is open for collection. It also feeds off of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and will use AI to align and confine us. 8) FEPA will use the 5G technology against Americans, not in favor of them. Don’t believe the hype that 5G will be a faster internet connection. A Trojan awaits in ANYTHING 5G. (BitCoins, Social Impact Investing, Community Partnerships, included those between cities and churches are a few of what is tied to 5G and a weakened State.) 9) FEPA (a supposedly education minded bill) sat in the Senate’s Homeland Security Committee longer than anywhere else in Congress. Why? FEPA alters the infrastructure of America! 10) Since FEPA attacks both the Declaration of Independence (based on natural rights and justice) and the Constitution (rules enforced by the government), every citizen should be up in arms and alarmed at what freedoms and rights are at stake!
Warriors, I’m sure by now, you are wondering what in the world we CAN do to fight back. I believe I have found something we can use to seriously land a blow to Congress and FEPA.
Consider the HR 4174’s track record, it’s full of broken procedures and rules used to ram it through BOTH Chambers. Congress claims there was no negative feedback (which would have given us a hearing). There was enough negative feedback to call for two hearings, but we were ignored. No debate, once HR 4174 came up for a vote on the Senate floor mere days before Christmas 2018. The vote? A voice one, again, no way for the citizens to hold Congress accountable.
Recourse #1: Since we have no record of how our Senators voted on HR 4174, we CAN find out how they voted on the Motion to Suspend Rules and Concur in the Senate! More than likely, if they voted to suspend, they voted for passage.
Recourse #2: FEPA is our enemy. If you need a better grasp on how Social Impact Bonds and BitCoins play into FEPA, visit Wrench In the Gears blog. Alison has done a superb job of explaining how both attach not only data to your profile, but will rank and file you like the Chinese Sesame Credit System. If you want a scathingly accurate account of how badly Congress dropped the ball with FEPA, read Dr. Young’s latest article on the subject. Of course, we have Jane Robbins’ “What is FEPA?” video and Christel Swasey’s video.
Recourse #3: Warriors, have you ever heard of the Unconstitutional Official Acts? I stumbled upon this while looking for quotes on liberty and its cost. Known simply as “-16 Am Jur. Sec. 177 late 2d, Sec 256” this Statute lays out how our U.S. Constitution beats out EVERYTHING.
It states that ANY act of any government official which violates our U.S. Constitution should be removed from office. No exceptions, no excuses.
Warriors,isn’t it time we shake up DC?! FEPA, along with ESSA, has GOT to GO! “Draining” DC hasn’t gotten us nowhere, especially in education. I’m not ready to have my freedoms taken away, and I imagine you aren’t either.
Warriors Against Fed Led Education, I’ve recently been looking over about 20 different federal bills from ‘our’ Congress. These bills are all the precursors to the Fiscal Year 2019’s FINALIZED Congressional Budget. In other words, what is laid out in this group of bills will be combed over, some changes made, and then combined into one BIG bill by mid September. Fiscal Year 2019 begins Oct. 1, 2018. SO, if we know what to look for NOW, we can be prepared later.
Why so many bills? Well, Warriors, think about it, when you have at least 9 different federal agencies overreaching into education, the funds have to not only be earmarked, they must come from several different angles.
However, make NO mistake, the size of government is NOT shrinking, nor is the footprint in ‘education’. One thing I can assure you of, as concerned American citizens. Our government does not care one bit about our students, as people, but as producers of profit for big government and big business.
As we know, Warriors, the shift in modern academics has been to remove true academia and replace it with workforce prep. The bills I’ve been looking at are 100% proof of this well planned, and so far, executed CCSS Machine agenda.
Warriors, for the remainder of this article, you’ll get all the information about these FY 2019 Congressional bills. Use the information to ask questions, demand answers, tell your Representative and Senator that there’s NO WAY you are OK with
(*Note: Not only will some of these bills cover FY 2019, but have laid the groundwork for every fiscal year between 2019 and 2028!)
Warriors, the time I’m asking you to spend on the following items is more than likely the most important thing you can do for your country. It’s certainly more time that it appears Congress spent remembering ANY overreach into education is illegal!
1) Start here, Warriors, it’s my most recent 40 minute video laying out the main Congressional Bills: House Concurred Resolution #128, HR 6470 and S 3158.
2) Then, take a couple of minutes and access my most recent article titled “Moving Along”. There, you’ll find the most well known US Government agencies with their claws in education.
3) To access the H Con Res 128, go here. What the most important items are from this Resolution is that all the FYs from 2019-2028 are laid out. You’ll also note that out of the 22 most important budget items, education is #10. It’s also lumped in with labor, jobs, and all social services. There’s a distinct reason for this.
4) Because education is lumped in with labor and social services, we need to note that most social services are headed up in the health and human services areas. Hence, the HR 6470 and S 3158. These sister bills cover ALL FY 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies. (*Note: Warriors are you seeing the theme here, that even Congress is relegating education to a back seat?) The most important items about HR 6470 and S 3158 are below. I urge you to comb through these on your own to see what else is in store.
a) Money being budgeted varies slightly from Chamber to Chamber in some cases, in most, both Chambers of Congress are in total agreement. (An example is that BOTH Bills seek to have $6 million dollars to ‘beef up’ and innovate the WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative), but vary slightly on Title One funds via ESSA and HEA (Every Student Succeeds and the Higher Education Act). The House wants $16.4 billion and the Senate wants $16.5 billion.)
b) HR 6470 is 194 pages and is on the Union Calendar for Congress as Item #667. S 3158 is 172 pages and is on the Senate Calendar as Item #497. The ‘Union’ calendar means that HR 6470 (and any other House bill with a Union Calendar #) was passed out of its Committee (in this case the Committee for Funding Labor, HHS, Ed, and their Related Agencies) and is waiting further action. The ‘Senate’ calendar means that whatever item is marked there, it needs Senate action on from the entire floor. A General Order (some of the Senate FY 2019 bills have this) note means the order in which the item was received.
c) Both HR 6470 and S 3158 have Committee Reports. As important as combing through the main bills are, these Reports are MUCH more revealing as to exactly where and HOW the funds will be spent IF APPROVED in the Final FY 2019 Budget. Here’s Committee Report 115-862from the House. The see the Senate Committee Report 115-289, go here. d) Both HR 6470 and S 3158 have money earmarked to expand CTE (Career Tech Education) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) Apprenticeships. The House wants to spend $150 million in expansion and the Senate, $160 million. As we know, Warriors, the President recently signed into law a nation-wide expansion for CTE and apprenticeships, as well as created a new EO (Executive Order) to create an expansion of government in overseeing apprenticeships. This also plays right into a previous President Trump EO to expand apprenticeships. You can read all about all of these EOs and the new law, here.
e) Also look for Community Development Block Grants, Head Start, Early Head Start, Social Services, Mental Health, Biomedical, Biotechnology, YouthBuild, TRIO, GEAR UP, any technical or infrastructure upgrades or assistance, or the many instances for national data collection (for example, near pages 68-70 of both HR 6470 and S 3158, you’ll see millions set aside for collecting mental health data from children.
f) Beginning on Page 113 (Page 115 in the Senate) in the House bill, you’ll see the ESSA breakdown for the huge amounts of taxpayer funds being sought. However, read carefully, Warriors, it is in this section (and others throughout all the Budget bills I’ve been reading) that an increase in funding from P3s (public private partnerships) will be HOW the federal government funds our nation’s agencies AND programs! These funds will come by donation, be awarded as either competitive or non-competitive grants and/or sub-grants. These ‘awards’ will also be available to non-profit groups. All in the name of ‘student success’.
5) HR 5894 (Union Calendar #539) is only 42 pages long and is what the House wants to see funding in FY 2109 for the entire Legislative Branch of the government. The tie to education can be found on page 26 via the Library of Congress’s $8.5 million for curriculum. (*Note: this bill has a Committee Report you’ll want to read.) S 3071 (Calendar #450) is 34 pages long. It has a VERYrevealingCommittee Report where you’ll see the CCSS Machine woven throughout. S 3071 also covers the FY 2019 Legislative Budget. One of the ties to education in the Senate Committee Report can be found on Page 16 with the Dept of Treasury’s Community Development Finance grants. Warriors, you’ll see that these grants can also be investments or loans. With ESSA’s mandate and funding increase to create 21st Century Community Learning Centers, this is a big red flag!
6) Warriors, these remaining bills cover most of the federal agencies with education overreach as well. Their ties to where in education will be in blue.
HR6258 and S 3107 cover Financial Services/General Gov’t. (*Note S 3107 has a detailedCommittee Report.) DC school improvement grants and the National Science Technology Council HR5952 and S 3072 cover Commerce/Justice/Science/Related Agencies (*Note: S 3072 has an accompanying Committee Report. The House’s Committee Report is here.) Economic development, census data collection, scientific research and information sharing technology. Ties to CCR (College/Career Readiness, STEM, the United Nations and CTE) HR 6072 and S 3023 cover Transportation/HUD/Related Agencies (*Note: the House CommitteeReport/Senate’s) Sustainable neighborhoods (of which you can probably tie to Promise Neighborhoods of ESSA), ties to the HEA (Higher Education Act), businesses testing higher education, national data collection, gives the Secretaries of Ed, Labor, HHS, Transportation, Commerce, the EPA, and the Attorney General leverage. HR 6157 and S 3159 cover the U. S. Dept of Defense (*Note: HR 6157 is currently in the Senate, as it has passed the House’s voting system. The Committee Report for HR 6157 is here. You can find the Senate’s here.) Gives more power to the Secretary of Education and LEAs (Local Education Agencies, at US Ed’s direction, over military base schools, targets Veterans and higher education, data mining, and data banks. HR 5961 and S 2976 cover Agriculture/Rural Activities/FDA/Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) Specifically refers to a national Bio/Ag Facility in KS, the Borlang International project, Food for Peace Grants, 12 education references, 10 science/technology priorities, and on Page 64 of HR 5961, portions of the budget must be used for science based educational information on the environment (this will lead to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals of the UN and STEM). S 3073 covers Interior/Environment/Related Agencies (*Note: The Committee Report) Education, especially as it relates to the Bureau of Indian Education’s alignment, is referred to in 31 different instances. HR 6147 covers Interior/Environment/General Gov’t/Agriculture/Rural Development/Food and Drug/Transportation and HUD (*Note: This Bill has passed both the House and the Senate. The House Committee Report is here. I’m including the plethora of amendment actions from both Chambers of Congress, as well.) Education is embedded a total of 65 times, Science (and as it relates to STEM in the various federal agencies) is embedded 22 times. HR 5786 and S 3024 cover Military Construction/Veteran Affairs and Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) Regional data collection, in the House Committee Report, education is embedded 24 times. S 2975 covers Energy/Water Development (*Note: this Bill is sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander, father of ESSA lies about local control in education. The Senate Committee Report is here.) Specific use of funds for educational purposes. HR 6385 and S 3108 cover State/Foreign Operations and Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) In the House bill pages 3 and 4 cite the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948; Fulbright Scholar program, and at least 34 other educational references embedded throughout. The Senate’s bill has 40 education overreaches.
Warriors, please note that in H Con Res 128, the 22 prioritized agencies have until Sept. 14, 2018 to trim their budgets. You can find the figures beginning on Page 44. For example, the Committee on Education, Job Training, Employment, and, Social Services must reduce their assigned $90 billion down to $70 billion.
In the Senate Committee Report related to S 3107, the following programs or offices are overreaching into education or items directly related to education services: The U.S. Treasury’s Capital Investment Plan, cyber-security, financial literacy, DATA Act, Government Accounting Office, The IRS’s TIGTA program, taxpayer data tracking, IRS’s Future State Vision, US Mint’s Community Development Financial Inst. Fund, Drug-Free Communities Support Program (ties to the Office of National Drug control Policy which partners with the US HHS’s Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Admin. in grants schools money), FCC’s IT Reform plans, Tech Modernization Funds, Harry S Truman Scholarship Funds
In the House Committee Report related to H 6147, the following programs or offices are overreaching into education or any directly related service: National Foundation of the Arts, the National Holocaust Museum (federally funded EXCEPT all educational materials which are privately funded), 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, National Endowment of the Arts/Humanities, Federal Land acquisitions to tie to World Heritage Sites, 3D Earn and Empower Program, Water Research Act, Core Science Systems Supports, Community Development Block Grants, BIE programs to align PreK to adult among the Native Americans, EPA’s expansion into STEM, Regional Innovation Clusters, and the Smithsonian’s expansion of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math).
Warriors, look for an update article in mid September about all this. In the meantime, raise your voices against the continued abuse of our taxpayer funds, the overreach into education, our privacy, and all that connects them. This is NOT our American vision!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve heard that beauty’s skin deep, right? What Congress is doing to our education system (birth to adult) isn’t beautiful. It’s disgraceful.
AIMing for Students:
Warriors, if you’ve not heard of HR 4029 (AIM Act of 2017), you are about to. “AIM” stands for ‘Accurate Income Measure’. The purpose? To direct Secretary Betsy DeVos where income data for cosmetology students is concerned. It ties the U.S. Dept. of Education to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service).
Currently, HR 4029 is in the House’s Education and Workforce Committee (where it’s been since October 2017). Introduced by Rep. Jackie Speier (CA), this Bill DOES limit DeVos’s powers in some ways, but then allows her to use her power in some very concerning ways.
Any data, even ‘income data’ should be part of our privacy, not up for grabs to share. However, we know, that at least 9 different federal agencies freely share our private data.
Rather than punish DeVos, this Bill redirects her use of student data in the name of insuring students get good paying jobs. But, look closer at the lawsuit and contrast it with the Bill.
Warriors, I wanted us to take a few moments to look at Rep. Speier’s stance on education. While I searched her website, I didn’t see any official statement, but I did find that she supports the technology bridge between the private sector and the federal government especially where education and jobs connect. I also found, where in 2009, she was seeking federal funds for expanding CBE (Competency Based Education) for students in college. The major? Early childhood education. (look below)
According to the Open Secrets website, the University of California is among Rep. Speier’s top campaign contributors.
Where Cosmetology Is In the CBE (Competency Based Education)?
Warriors, according to the CTE (Career Tech Education) Clusters, ‘cosmetology’ is found in the ‘human services’ cluster. Since there are only 16 Career Clusters, and many types of jobs in human services, ‘cosmetology’ is listed in the personal care track.
Back in Dec. 2014, I revealed to you how Cengage(a huge CCSS Machine member) is the main publisher for CBE/CTE Common Core books, courses, assessments, and, resources.
Among them? The “Milady” resources used for training cosmetologists. (*Note: Cengage has a profile on Rep. Speier’s votes. To access it, go here.)
Warriors, not only will we find cosmetology courses in K-12th grades and community colleges, there are several privately owned cosmetology companies/schools out there.
I showed you the dangers of privately owned companies using the same textbooks and resources of the CCSS Machine and how harmful this is. A big tactic for cosmetology schools used against students is ‘free’ technology upon registration.
Since cosmetology courses are CCSS aligned and each school teaching it receives federal funds, where would find those funding streams? A huge one is the E-rate. I exposed that information in 2016.
Lastly, Warriors, HR 4029 will impact the HEA (Higher Education Act). Since that law is being re-written, watch for how ‘gainfully employed’ may be defined. Will the true definition remain, or, will that change to reflect the CCSS Machine’s alignment? With the massive amounts of data needed, what new(er) student data raping algorithms will be inserted into the ‘new’HEA?
So, Warriors, this Bill focusing on ONE career is troubling. Will this AIM legislation be attached to all careers? Will that AIM be embedded in the House and Senate versions of HEA (House’s version is the PROSPER Act; Senate’s is the Higher Education Innovation Act). Will this type of AIM be embedded in other HEA amendment bills? (There are tons of these, by the way.)
Why is a CA Representative who is usually championing for women and the military concerning herself with cosmetology students? I believe, Rep. Speiers, is like all the other sold out legislators who believe CBE is the only alignment needed to make education and jobs matter. How disgraceful.
