Consequences

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.**

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.

thank-you-festive

 

Consequences:

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:

fepawarn
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.

Lady Liberty Weeps 2

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!

Citizen Recourse:

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.

Closing:

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.

Working Over The “Old North State”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, just a few days ago, I shared with you how ‘great’ NC’s updated school-wide report cards are. ICYMI, here it is.

Worth repeating, though, is this: A CTE (Career Tech Education) specific school in my county had ZERO textbooks (according to the NC Report Card website).

What does this have to do with workforce based education? Everything! Not only is NC (Old North State) getting ‘worked over’, every other State is too!

nc'works'
Warriors, the name chosen for one of the  NC (Old North State) Workforce Education based programs is “NCWorks”.

Look below and tell me, Warriors, how well this federal-to-state-to-your child’s education has workforce woven into it. This is meant for ALL school choices.

ancientscroll

It’s been said for years that the goal for ‘education’ isn’t being well educated, it’s being well-trained.
***************************************************
Not long after I began my blog (2014), I attended an meeting held on a local community college campus. The rhetoric spilling out of the elected officials and school employees was eye-opening, to say the least. It was all about workforce aligned schools. See this article. (You’ll even see the embedded You Tube video about national workforce credentials. As the business owner stated in the short film, ‘no certification; no job’.)

Programs like “NC Works” bring the workforce aligned schools to 100% fruition.

I also shared with you how the NCWorks program came to be in Sept. 2014.

An updated article about NCWorks in 2015 showed you how the Governor of NC ( Pat McCrory) had laid out a ‘smooze fest’ of CCSS Machine member groups and citizens to carry out his plan for education and workforce training to intersect.

Warriors, every Governor did likewise. It was due to the language of WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). Governors were given more power. Using it to create aligned school-to-work systems was just the beginning.

In 2016, I gave you an update on NCWorks and how it was connected to a bond for statewide community colleges. The bond was a poorly disguised taxpayer disaster for generations to come. Thanks to the CCSS Machine, the bond was voted on and passed.
**************************************************************

Warriors, when the Education and Workforce Commission was started, it was housed in the Governor’s administrative branch. During the summer of 2107, the Commission was moved from the Governor’s office to the NC DPI (North Carolina Dept. of Public Instruction).  From what I can find, the new location is in the NC DPI’s CTE (Career and Technical Education Office)

The announcement I found about the move is from the Public Schools First NC website:

edworktransfer

If you are curious, the Public Schools First NC states its a group of nonpartisan citizens. However, “Mapping the Left” website shows the Public Schools First NC, has received some previous funding from The Reynolds Foundation.

Reynolds Foundation supports all kinds of community groups, social justice projects, and education. Among one of the red warning signs I found on Reynolds 2015 Grant page was to a non-profit called “DigiLearn”. DigiLearn was founded by former Governors (NC) Perdue and (WY) Geringer. (*Note: Perdue was in office when NC’s Race to the Top funds were awarded.)

DigiLearn’s Board has two well-known CCSS Machine members, one is NC legislator Craig Horn and the other is Tom VanderArk.

From a DigiLearn 2017 presentation, this screen shot:

If you’d like to see the Policy guide which goes with the DigiLearn presentation, look here. Note that by 2018, all NC school districts are to digitally ready.

If you’d like to see how the Reynolds Foundation is represented in the current NC Governor’s (Roy Cooper) appointed Education Commission, go here.
******************************************************

So, Why Share This Now?

Warriors, I share this now, as the NC DPI is wrapping up 2017, with sights set for 2018. Planned? A new workforce based learning program AND approach. It all appears to be housed in the NC DPI’s CTE Office, too. You’ll more than likely find this type of activity in your State.

newncwork
The ‘new’ program? “The Students@Work is a project of the North Carolina Business Committee for Education in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.Warriors, the new program won’t replace NCWorks. It compliments it!
********************************
Both NCWorks and CTE use Perkins funding. Perkins funding was not to be embedded in K-12th education when it first began. Perkins funds were for post-secondary educational institutions and programs. However, when the CCSS Machine began the shift from academics to workforce, Perkins funds found their way into the classroom. ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) even embeds CTE and Perkins funds.
*********************************

Where can you find the “Students@Work”?  I found it in the 2018-19 NC CTE Standards.
You can also watch a short YouTube video about the program. The Students@Work website is here. Members of the NC Business Committee for Education can be found here. Every business and/or school you see is tied to the CCSS Machine.

Warriors, “CTE Standards” are CCSS Standards! (More information)
You can also read about the recent 6 States (NC, AL, IA, IL, NV, and RI) involved in the CTE/STEM Workforce based Siemens Corporation education initiative.

CTE also marries Common Core to STEM.

The Siemens Initiative began back in 2015. According to the Siemens overview, it was to target ‘young adults’ (16-24 years). However, the NC workforce education plan (above) is to start in 6th grade or about 11 years old.  The Siemens Foundation partners are some heavy-hitting CCSS Machine member groups.

**I also am sharing this now to tie all of this to the fact that the HEA (Higher Education Act) is being re-written. It has been for a while now.

In these last remaining days for Congress (before the 2017 holiday recess), Rep. Foxx is the sponsor of HR 4508PROSPER Act.  It’s the House’s re-authorization of the HEA (Higher Education Act) .

Warriors, it combines CTE, STEM, CCSS, Workforce agenda, globalization, data mining,  and, cradle to grave data tracking.

PROSPERfodder
To access the PROSPER Bill, go here. The Politico 12/13/17 Morning Report stated that HR 4508 would shrink the U.S. Dept. of Education; shift some of Ed’s business to the U.S. Treasury, and more.

Warriors, remember, while these moves SOUND good, I’ve already shown you evidence of how DANGEROUS these actions will be to our schools!

Oh, and let’s not forget Sen. Lamar Alexander’s bragging about overhauling HEA. He’ll be a big mouthed liar once again in 2018 when it comes to education.
**************************************************

HEA (as I’ve said for at least 2 years) is the LAST link in the American education chain which will forever change schools from academic institutions to workforce training facilities…for all ages and educational choices!

As chair woman for the House’s Education and Workforce Committee, Foxx is featured in this article about how badly PROSPER’s agenda/alignment is needed. If you ever doubted Foxx’s view of ‘quality education’, look below:

foxxed
I’ve researched this ‘sold-out-to-the-CCSS-Machine-Representative’ several times. Her grasp of truly representing her citizens has been replaced by corporate lies.

**I also share all this now, because several federal level bills seek to create national data tracking in the name of education. HR 4174, S2046; the assault on Net Neutrality will also involve data and our right to privacy (this involves the FTC and FCC: both use taxpayer funds for data mining); the ‘data raping’ will continue via many more proposed bills.
Data is needed to pigeon hole students into workforce training aka ‘education’!

Data is the key, here, Warriors.  On one hand, we need to access HOW the data is being used against our children, as well as protect our civil right to freedom of privacy. On the other hand, as Americans, we know we must use the internet for all kinds of purposes. So, shouldn’t it be as open and free to use as possible?

If data becomes privatized or government micro-managed in any way, we’re losing our civil rights. Not to mention how terrible a track record the US government has with cyber security lately.

savethenet

Closing:

Warriors, this is rotten timing, I know. We should be focusing on all the December holidays we have. We shouldn’t have to be contacting our Representatives and Senators.

BUT, we must sacrifice our energy and time! We have to do all we can to block the undermining of our nation! Congress is NOT helping our education system; it’s NOT representing true American values; and, it’s NOT honoring our U.S. Constitution.

Isn’t that worth a few minutes of time in the last days of 2017? We must revolt against all that is wrong with these egregious Bills!
