My fellow Warriors, sometimes in research for educratic BS (or related ties), you find something so ridiculous, it’s hard to pass it up.
Warriors, believe it or not, NC (the State where I reside) sends out a weekly email with the week in review for education bills in our General Assembly. So imagine my surprise when I see NC HB 30.
The purpose? To declare an official State Frozen Treat.
My friends, how woeful it seems; all this time, the taxpayers have been denied an OFFICIAL dessert of a frozen variety.
Go ahead, laugh. I certainly did. All the things which need legislation AND this comes up in education related business? Let’s see what we can find hiding in the freezer….
First, A Fun Fact:
Did you know July is National Ice Cream month? The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) established that and President Reagan declared it back in 1984. We’ll come back for a second scoop on information about IDFA in a bit.
NC Has A ‘Problem’?
From the 2019 NC General Assembly, a look at HB 30, The NC Official Frozen Treat Act:
Warriors, Rep. Torbett is a 5 term Representative. According to VoteSmart, his campaign funding can be tied to a few CCSS Machine member groups in NC. The NC Chamber of Commerce, Wells Fargo, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, American Airlines, General Motors, and, Duke Energy name just a few.
Ironically the NC Dental Association also helped fund Rep. Torbett’s last campaign. I’m truly hoping the NC dentists will be ready for all those brain frozen patients when it comes time for filling cavities. (The NC Dental Assoc. is part of the American Dental Assoc. which has evidence that ice cream alone adds 6.5% more sugar to your diet and therefore can cause tooth decay.)
If you look at the Committee assignments for Mr. Torbett you’ll not see any farmers or dairy councils. He is the Vice Chair for the NC House Appropriations, though.
Warriors, before we go further back in the ‘freezer’, go back and look at HB 30’s text.
Ice cream contributes $39 billion to the US economy but only employs roughly 200,000 people? Somebody’s sure ‘double dipping’. (Gee, could it be a brain freeze AND Common Core math-itis?)
NICRA (National Ice Cream Retailers Association):
This is a trade organization which serves up ice cream and frozen treats across the globe. Much of the service goes on here in the US.
NICRA is headquartered in MO.
Part of NICRA’s mission is to have education as part of a career track. Scholarships are available to young students for tuition, room, board, and school supplies.
Listed among the NICRA’s Supplier Leadership Officers is a representative of ConAgra Foods. ConAgra is a CCSS Machine member.
NC’s Dept of Agriculture & Consumer Services:
Back in 1991, the NC Dept. of Ag/Consumer Services inducted Mr. Kilgore into the NC Agricultural Hall of Fame. Look at the amount of money one ice creamery made.
Second Scoop, IDFA:
Warriors, if you are wondering where Rep. Torbett got the $39 billion figure, it is right off the IDFA’s website for National Dairy Month. So here’s a question, since this is a State specific bill WHY the national figures?
Why not use the NC economic figures and job numbers? By the way, if you want local dairy economic figures and jobs created, the IDFA has a mobile app you can use.
Warriors, be sure to look at the IDFA’s ‘issues’. You’ll see bioengineered food, NAFTA (which can be tied back to WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), the (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) STEM Act of 2015, HEA (Higher Education Act), and ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), and a few more ‘sprinkles’.
If you look at a recent IDFA Press Release you’ll see an international sweetener conference was held in FL. Among the topics: the US-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) Trade Agreement. This will also tie back to ESSA and its aligned workforce education track. If you didn’t know it the USMCA replaced NAFTA.
Warriors, hold on to your toppings! Look below to see not only the IDFA supports Agenda 2030, but other US organizations connected to the dairy industry do, too!
To see the 2016 Rotterdam Declaration, read it here.
Warriors, just yesterday, I exposed a huge UN-led grab via STEM for our farmers. One of the biggest connectors was the FAO of the UN (Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN). Now, take into consideration that not only are the farmers getting the indoctrination, the students in schools are. Most especially that going vegan will cut down climate change.
How can you go vegan when you’re eating ice cream made from cow’s milk?! How will States like NC, agriculture based, have a thriving economy or all those jobs, if you wipe out dairy and livestock?
What do you do with the cows? Tax the farmers on the cow’s methane like CA?! In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown certainly sold the ‘global warming’ via tooting cows. In late 2018, the regulations took place state-wide.
Sadly, this is a grab to mandate what farmers feed their cows. How about this, just good ole plain grass. It’s how God made them have the capability to produce milk.
No telling how long it will be before idiotic legislation like this comes to NC, after all, there are plenty of cows here, too!
Also, think about it, since taxing folks with gassy bovines has begun, what about those who eat dairy products and produce similar results?
I can tell you that NC has a methane recapture program going to help create renewable energy.
The Cherry On Top For NC:
Warriors, why would a seemingly silly bill about declaring ice cream as the official NC frozen treat lead us down so many twists and turns? Because, as we’ve learned time and time again, the CCSS Machine will take the simplest joys in education and dumb them down, while gushing how ‘sweet it is’.
So, what’s the real ‘cherry on top’ for NC via HB 30? It’s not the endorsement of good times or summer fun, it’s helping set up a dairy assembly line of worker drones for NC jobs and the NC/national economy.
Look at what NC’s got in its Career Clusters for CTE (Career Tech Education):
Warriors, if you’ve not seen the 2018 Career Clusters Guide, look at NC’s. It’s broken down over 120 pages and has a one-track-so-you-can-learn-to-earn system.
**Look at the ‘school choices’ involved in Career Clusters! This is further proof ‘choice’ is a fallacy of what’s learned in schools. It’s all the same for the same results!**
So, why did Rep. Torbett sponsor such a frivolous bill as HB 30? I’ve no proof of ‘why’, but I can show you why I believe he did:
Warriors, there you have it, one sour dish of alignment. When will our legislators skip the ‘sweet’ deceptions of globalism and bring America back? As you can see it is absolutely fruitless to say it’s all one major political party’s mess.
So, now we can all see why little ole HB 30 was in an educational email.
How many of us want to bet the only connection most folks make between ice cream and education is that the school cafeteria may serve it for dessert.
