RBF (Really Big Fad) In Education?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, RBF really doesn’t stand for “Really Big Fad” in education, but it might as well. What IS “RBF” it’s the acronym for “Results Based Financing” in education.

RBFs are not only found in education, but other business industries. While the link I’ve provided shows other countries, as quickly as the US is embracing these, it’s only a matter of time before we’re saddled up for these returns/results.

Wait, Lynne, is education a business industry?! Yes, Warriors, that’s exactly what education’s been turned into: an industry. The ‘fodder’ for the industry? Our students and teachers. Those profiting? The corporations and P3s (Public Private Partnerships) in the CCSS Machine

Being squeezed out of the education industry? Teachers, leaders, and, most of all, PARENTS!

kisspng-bank-robbery-crime-clip-art-bank-robber-cliparts-5a8a0d587fa600.3009802115189968245229So, far, from what I’ve been able to find, the biggest ‘industry’ RBFs are used in is health care. RBFs are VERY popular in the global aspect (worldwide), too. Why not? After all, the World Bank is a huge part of RBFs.

If RBFs sound a bit confusing, think of it this way: Pay for success or vouchers.
That’s right, PfS and Vouchers ARE forms of RBFs. We saw PfS embedded in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). We see vouchers are a big kingpin to the current DC Administration’s stranglehold on education, too.

roundupWarriors, truth be told, ‘paying for success’ in ANYTHING, here in, the US isn’t new. But it IS rooted in several global political ‘isms which are anti American.

According to this website, PfS is a great way to ‘measure outcomes’. It also says that here in the US, the first PfS was in 2012. If you look at the makeup of the PfS in the ESSA law, you’ll see that it is Sen. Hatch’s example.

**Remember, Warriors, any time you see the federal government, education, and ‘outcomes’, it is THEIR goals and mandated targets you are to measure up to, NOT your own personal best.

Sale Clip Art #28912

Warriors, this is exactly how the CCSS Machine grinds on. The only ‘measured outcome’ the PfS or RBFs care about is simply this: are you workforce ready to have a job to boost the economy. This is exactly WHY the language of page 17 is SO important.

nochoice

Those ‘industry based standards’ are from WIOA, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, NOT an education law!

Warriors, we’re being set up to be nothing more than a society run worker!

Look at this emphasized screen shot:

worldbankrbf

Warriors, it’s super easy to see that this isn’t about people’s best interests in health care as it is about the economy being well ‘fed’.

Same with education! Here’s another visual from the same slide presentation. Imagine instead of health care,you see education.

If you’d like to see the entire slide presentation, that link is here.

The RBFs, World Bank, And, Education:

Warriors, I found RBFs by a tip from a fellow Warrior who’s concerned with the overreaches in ruining our children’s lives. This Warrior found a group called IREX ( a global development and education organization. IREX is tied to the U.S. State Department’s USAID. As you know, I’ve tied USAID to the UN (United Nations) and the CCSS Machine many times.

What connects IREX and USAID? The World Bank.

***We’ll look at IREX in a bit, first, let’s see what else the World Bank has to offer us on RBFs and education.***

Remember, results based financing is mainly concerned with the investor’s bottom line, not your individual results. Why would this be most upsetting to us as parents, taxpayers, and teachers? Because it doesn’t respect the student’s differences in learning! All measured outcomes are the same, according to ESSA! Refer back to page 17 and the penguins above!

The ONLY measured outcome the CCSS Machine (thereby the federal government, too) will accept is College/Career Ready;  aka Common Core State Standards; aka CTE (Career Tech Education) for workforce ready drones.

essagoal

Think of it this way, Warriors, “results based financing” is a lot like the old ad slogans where you heard ‘results may vary’.

resultsvary

You knew once you heard this that what you ended up with may or may NOT be like everyone else’s results.

Warriors, what ESSA’s variety is, in reality, is ‘results will NOT vary’:

resultsnotvary
Why is there no ‘variety’ for Johnny and Suzy in THIS photo? All education MUST be the same. This means all curriculum, learning, teaching, resources, tests, related activities, and, on and on.

So, in this example those RBF investors are putting all their fruit into ONE basket!

This, my Warrior friends, is EXACTLY what the World Bank is encouraging!!!

Talk of variety (personalized learning) is muttered, but it’s absolutely a smokescreen. Don’t let your child become some corporation’s bottom line profit!

IREX’s RBF In Education:

So, Warriors, since the World Bank is shoving RBFs in education in all corners of the world, what is IREX doing to support the WB and does it tie to the CCSS Machine?

First, IREX is short for International Research and Exchanges Board. From my 2018 article on IREX, look at their globalization plans for classrooms:

2018IREX

From the IREX 2018 Annual Report, their example of RBFs will strike very close to home, here in the US:

IREXcenters

To access the Annual Report, go here.

ESSA’s mandate for 21st Century Community Learning Centers was featured in this article from my archives. 

Wizard-of-oz-clipart-kid-2

Related:
From 1974 a 215 page US/USSR report on exchanges in education and the economy.

IREX’s full list of donors (many are very easy to spot as CCSS Machine members).

Economic hoops States have to jump through to uphold the ESSA mandate for 21st Century Community Learning Centers (as the example from NC showed).

Months before ESSA was made into a federal law, the original intent for 21st Century Community Learning Centers. This fits right in with not only the RBFs, but big tech/big data, too.

Closing:

Remember, Warriors, 21st Century Learning Centers and Results Based Financing are not simply reserved for public education. They were created for public conformity.
We’d do well to become non-conformists as soon as possible. That way we can make RBFs stand for Really Bad Fiasco which We the People laid to rest.

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).

Related Resources:

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.

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:

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.)

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’

 

“The Prudence Files, Part Two”

Welcome back, Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s Part Two of my look at the 2020 Presidential race. In Part One, you not only got a feel for how I am putting the series together, but a close up look at the Senators running for the Oval Office.  Today, the close up is on  Representatives (and former DC leaders)??

pru1

As you saw in Part One, there are 20 candidates who have announced their candidacy and at least 13 others considering running. In both groups, you have current and former public servants and private citizens.
Below is the screen shot from Part One for the federal public servants. Note the Representatives for today’s article.

***Please note: Rep. John Delaney left his office  after the 2018 mid term elections.***

Rep. Ryan has 20 current education bills (or related) and one House Resolution which relates.

ryanbills
Reps. Moulton, Swalwell, and Gabbard share co-sponsorship of HR 1, 5, 6, and 1784. They also voted ‘yes’ to HR 1’s final House vote. Rep. Amash voted ‘no’ to HR 1.
Reps. Moulton and Swalwell share co-sponsorship of HR 51 and HR 865.
Reps. Gabbard and Moulton share co-sponsorship of HR 728.
Reps. Gabbard and Swalwell share co-sponsorship of HR 1384.
Rep. Swalwell shares co-sponsorship of HR 1733. Rep. Moulton is the sponsor of HR 1733.
Rep. Moulton shares co-sponsorship of HR 1109 and HR 1170.
**Note: HR 1 also embeds the automatic protection of the U.S. Dept. of Education (and other agencies) in the event of a disaster (natural or man-made).

Rep. Moulton currently has 8 education related bills. (*Note: from his Congressional page, his education stance.)

Rep. Swalwell shares co-sponsorship of HR 590.
Reps. Ryan and Gabbard share co-sponsorship of HR 873.
Rep. Ryan shares co-sponsorship of HR 1058.
Rep. Gabbard shares co-sponsorship of HR 1943. Rep. Gabbard is also the sponsor of HR 1587.

Rep. Gabbard has 7 Education related bills. Her education stance was featured in Part One.

Reps. Moulton, Swalwell, and, Ryan share co-sponsorship of HR 860.
Rep. Moulton shares co-sponsorship of HR 674.

Rep. Swalwell has 6 education related bills. His education/workforce stance can be found here.

swabills

Rep. Moulton shares co-sponsorship of HR 9 and HR 1368.


Rep. Amash has 2 education related bills. Warriors, as I pointed out in Part One, while voting ‘no’ to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was a good thing, it appears that’s been cast aside. Why would I say that? Look above, do you see the support for school vouchers?
School vouchers are a big part of, not only ESSA, but current federal budgets! From BallotOPedia, you can see he previously voted ‘yes’ to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. That Act has been kept in place. So how does it connect to education? Creating more P3s (Public Private Partnerships) in education, at all ages!

The first bill Rep. Amash has co-sponsored is HR 899, it’s the one bill which would shut down the U.S. Dept. of Education by Dec. 31, 2020. While I do agree the U.S. Dept. of Education should be shut down, it is absolutely NOT prudent to shut it down without REPEALING ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), first.

Something the Bill’s sponsor and co-sponsors didn’t attach to the bill. I’ve written previously about the ‘unintended consequences’ which would happen should this Bill become law. With the direction education is headed in, as well as the upcoming election, we don’t need to throw wisdom out the window. (*Note: the embedded article above features the 115th version of HR 899. The 116th version is the same except the termination date.)

The Second bill is HR  1910, which would end the Import/Export Bank. While that’s a good thing (for education), It’s doubtful this bill will pass.

Former federal politicians running for President (or considering it)

1) Former Rep. John Delaney:

Warriors, as I shared above, Mr. Delaney left Congress to pursue the 2020 Campaign, full time. Here’s his website:

To see his education stance (and it’s pretty awful), go here. As a ‘bonus’ you’ll even see he mentions some of his work in education while he was in the House. Let’s not forget, he did vote “yes” to ESSA.

2) Former Rep., Beto O’Rourke:
Warriors, I know there’s been lots of questions about Beto’s stance on charters. I can tell you that Reuters has recently published his past support for them could be trouble. However, as an Anti Fed Ed Warrior, you need to know the non-profit his wife heads (which ‘improves education’) is a partner with the Gates Foundation.
As far as the official O’Rourke for President campaign website, his education stance is pretty scary. Strengthening education unions will only breed more globalism!

3) Former VP, Joe Biden:

Warriors, if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you will know I’ve already connected Mr. Biden (while he was the Vice President) to the CCSS Machine. Times haven’t changed at all.


To see the Biden Foundation information on education, go here. To see my articles on Biden, go here.

According to The Hill, if Biden does run in 2020, he’ll be the guy to beat.

4) Former Senator/Former Sec. Of State, John Kerry:

Warriors, if you missed the Kerry/Bush debate on education, I’ve got it right here! Kerry was in full support of nationalized standards. That was while Kerry was a Senator.

As the Secretary of State (State Dept., which is very much in the CCSS Machine/UN back pocket), Kerry’s getting us in the Paris Agreement (which has influenced education via climate change, even in 2019) was counted as one of his greatest accomplishments.

(Sources for the information seen above)

The CCSS Machine’s money (as seen in Part One). Regardless of the Senate, the House, or former public service, the campaign dollars show us quite a bit.

 

Warriors, use your prudence when looking at the other issues your candidate stands for. As we’ve seen from the Senators, the Representatives, the Vice President, and the Secretary, education connects to everything else.

Closing:

Warriors, in Part Three, I’ll be reviewing the Trump/Pence team’s actions in education. In Part Four, I’ll be exposing the State level politicians running for the Oval Office.
Part Five, will conclude the series with private citizens running, as well as, other election information.
Be watchful my followers, we’ve got much to do in the coming days.
**This just in, Rep. Swalwell was reported in Part One as considering to run, he has since confirmed it.
