Confused Yet?

***Fourth in a Series Highlighting the 116th Congressional session of federal overreaches in the name of education.

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, over the years we’ve had quite a bit thrown at us in order to confuse us. No where does this seem to reoccur more than Congress. Especially at the CCSS Machine’s direction.

During the past 3 articles, I’ve shown you the massive federal educratic overreaches into our homes, forcing a false ‘choice’ agenda, and, uniting with the (United Nations) UN’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) to basically do the same thing: data track us from cradle to grave. It’s not about academic education, it’s all about jobs and workforce training…just as the UN and the CCSS Machine have been plotting/carrying out.

Thank goodness, that part’s not confusing! So, what is confusing, you may be asking?

Two federal bills with different numbers from the SAME Chamber of Congress!
In the past, on my blog and writing for the
Patriot Institute, I shared with you the long used practice of Congress having ‘sister’ bills, but those would come from BOTH Chambers, not one. (*Note: Congress uses this system, from what I’ve seen in education research to accomplish one goal: get the agenda through from one side or the other.)

Every Congress member should know our position when it comes to fed led education!So, let’s see what these two bills are from the same Chamber.

HR 150 and HR 50:

HR 150, “Grant Reporting Efficiency and Agreements Transparency Act of 2019” aka GREAT Act (12 pages long)
HR 50, GREAT Act aka “Grant Reporting Efficiency and Agreements Transparency Act of 2019” (12 pages long)
Both are sponsored by Rep. Virginia Foxx of NC.
HR 150 has 15 co-sponsors, has had 1 roll call vote and is in the Senate already (Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs).
HR 50 has no co-sponsors, is in the House Committee of Oversight and Reform.

Of the 15 co-sponsors for HR 150, 7 are from the introduction (1/3/19), the others have cosponsored since then. Original House Representatives: Gomez (CA), Quigley and Kelly (IL), DesJarlais (TN), Palmer (AL), and Kilmer (WA). The other 8  Representatives are: Rouda and Harder (CA), Meadows (NC), Norman (SC), Axne (IA), Kline (VA), Stauber and Emmer (MN).

Before we look at the text of HR 150/HR 50, let me remind you of Rep. Foxx’s stance on ‘quality’ education:

What HR 150/50 Say and Do:

Warriors, here’s a list of what we can expect:

1) Either will modernize the federal government’s grant reporting system and ‘other purposes’. What this means is if you received a federal grant or are in a cooperative agreement with the federal government, you’re about to be more data tracked than ever before. How this can related to education is via all the grants, sub-grants, and cooperative agreements mandated in ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act.


2) An imposition of data standards will be visited upon each recipient and participant of grants, sub-grants, and, cooperative agreements.
3) In charge of the imposition of data standards AND implementing data streams will be the Director of the Office and Budget Management. Why THAT director? To be in compliance with the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (31
7 U.S.C. 6101 note).
The purpose? From Page 2 “which includes the development of a ‘‘comprehensive taxonomy of standard definitions for core data elements required for managing Federal financial assistance awards’’ .
How this will play out for you and I is whatever data is taken it will be quicker, less burdensome for P3s (public private partnerships), and better manage us, at least as far as our data.

4) These bills will strengthen the federal government in oversight and management of all the grant recipients and cooperative partners.

5) Both bills will amend Subtitle V (5) of Title 31 of the United States Code by creating a brand new chapter titled “Data Standards for Grant Reporting”. Title 31 deals with money and finance, subtitle V deals with general assistance administration.
Look below at where Chapter 64 would land between:

Within this new chapter you’ll find that ‘core data elements’ mean they aren’t specific to what program, but are still required by the federal government for all or most of all the grants, awards, cooperative agreements, and sub-grants.

You’ll also learn that what the federal government defines as grants, sub-grants, awards, and cooperative agreements isn’t always in money form. As such, it’s up for grabs to be data tracked. While the federal government is setting these data standards, the States must comply. At the bare minimum, unique identifiers for federal awards and their groups will be tracked government wide.

How it is determined which federal agency set these data standards? The Executive agency which has the MOST activity!! What is this? Grade school games?!


Who gets tracked? Basically everybody.

Supposedly whatever data is collected is to be ‘fully searchable and machine readable’ as well as ‘non-proprietary’ overseen by ‘voluntary consensus standards bodies’.

All the while this is going on the U.S. Treasury will act as consultant. Other consultants could include any head of a federal agency (giving the awards), those receiving awards, the private sector experts (including privacy ones), and State/local governments.

6) Guiding all this data collection? The federal government. The federal government will explore new opportunities to involve modern technology in the data collection/sharing. All this is to take place with 2 years of the bills becoming law. Within 3 years, all future data collection/standards/sharing must be in full compliance.

7) On page 9, you’ll find one of those ‘other purposes’ coming to life. It’s called the Single Audit Act. This is where the ‘federal clearinghouse’ for data is dependent on the new Chapter 64 that HR150 and HR 50 put into place.

8) By 4 years after HR 150 and HR 50 become law, data is to be made public. It’s here that you’ll see that the Director of the Office Management and Budget determines ‘reasonable restrictions’ to personal and private data.

Is this determination at the federal government’s definition or of ‘We the People’?

Ah..the answer is whatever’s shareable by the Freedom of Information Act, is what can be shared in the future…

9) On the bottom of Page 10, you’ll find the Director and the Secretary of whichever federal agency gives the most grants, etc. set what data is ‘non proprietary’ or what isn’t. By  the last page of these bills you’ll find a classic federal government CYA statement about no new data which isn’t already fair game for the government will be used.

Warriors, if you’re wondering about the difference of ‘non proprietary’ data as far as the federal government, it means data they produced or generated. However, take into consideration that 9/10 of the data the government collects comes from proprietary (meaning your personal property) data/information.

Again, CONTEXT, Warriors. Think what Chapter 64 means for education. Think about the algorithms needs in those high-stake assessments or behavior interventions. Think about the biometrics involved.

Lastly, note that HR 150 has been slammed through the House and is in the Senate. This Bill needs to be killed. HR 50, needs to die in its Committee. Call, email, text, or use social media. These Bills, HR 150 and HR 50, are data raping pimps to be used by the federal government. Look at the future plans being made here!!!!

2) I tried to find a recent list of the top grant awarding federal agencies. The most recent I could find was 2010:

Closing:

Are you confused yet, as to how much the federal government means to track us from cradle to grave? We shouldn’t be, Bills like this exact pair are super dangerous. Let D.C. know you’re not going to allow this!!

My next article in this series will look at the educratic/data rape aspects for Medicaid, TANF, and everyday Moms.

 

A Scientific Ploy

**Third in a Series of 116th Congressional Bills overreaching into education

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, after 10 years of research and 5 years of blogging, the trails connecting educratic overreach literally span the globe.

By far and away, the most ‘picked upon’ school subject shoving the CCSS Machine agenda down our throats is SCIENCE

Why science? Well, if you look at the history of science, it was a way in which to explore the wonder and awe of God’s creation. It was a way in which discoveries truly made life better. It was a way to learn which truly delighted the senses and helped create imagination.

Fast forward to near the Renaissance time and secular humanism entered the picture. This was the very beginning of divorcing God from science. To this day, there are many who embrace that science is more credible than God. Vice versa, those who still regard science as a way in which to discover and better life, see the two as intertwined. 

The reason this type of context is important leads to our modern day education reform which so pivots off science.  The ‘teaching’ of science has become a former shadow of greatness.
Science, especially as the UN (United Nations) and UNESCO have spun it, has BECOME a god.
Why does that matter in the US?

Because the United States has adopted the UN/UNESCO’s ‘science as a god’ mentality via STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math/Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and, Math).


IF you’d like to see (for the first time or as a review) my extensive amount of research into how embedded the U.S. Government, including Congress, has made STEM/STEAM. Here is the link  for STEM/STEAM/UNESCO (2 pages). Here’s the link for STEM/STEAM/UN (7 pages).

Below are the most relevant which will connect to the new Bill from the 116th Congressional session.

From 2015, the traceable connections from the CCSS to STEMtoSTEAM shift for every single educational choice and age available in the United States.

From 2016, the CCSS and UNESCO ideology match to incorporate STEM into CTE (Career Tech Education), CCR (College and Career Readiness). Next Gen Social Studies and Next Gen Science would follow suit. The crux of the ideology? Collectivism in life, belief, and action all to sustain the Earth.

From 2018, how BOTH major political parties have inserted, supported, and, codified UN agenda into US legislation and programs to usher in STEM/STEAM via infrastructure, as well as education.

From  August 2018, the FY 2019 STEM budget earmarked $150 million from one Chamber of Congress and $160 million from the other. Then, add in an Executive Order expanding apprenticeships which include STEM/STEAM.

From October 2018, how STEM budget money and programs stoop to exploit gender, involve social impact bonds, and, create havoc in education as well as the nation.

 

STEM, by way of Common Core..and not in a distant galaxy.


Meet The Representative Behind HR 627:

HR 627 was introduced by Rep. Rob Wittman of VA. Below, is a screen shot from Rep. Wittman’s Congressional website. (*Note: the added rhetorical question is one I’ve longed to ask EVERY Congress member and President since 2009!!)


Of Rep. Wittman’s “Issues”, education is dead last on the list. However, the Representative does brag about his service during the 115th Session in pumping up CTE and STEM for education.  I encourage you to enlarge this screen shot or open in a new tab. The dynamics of the language used is almost comical, if this wasn’t so tragically real.


HR 627’s Language:

Warriors, this House of Representatives Bill is called the ‘STEM Research and Education Effectiveness and Transparency Act’. HR 627 is  5 pages long. It’s currently in the House Committee of Science, Space, and Technology.
1) As we’ve seen so many times in STEM/STEAM related initiatives, programs, funding, and bills or laws, HR 627 targets women and under-served minorities for STEM jobs and careers.
2) It directs the NSF (National Science Foundation), to direct the entire program being expanded (ie: bigger government overreach). It was the NSF, the UN influenced to force STEM into President Obama’s agenda which has been extended by President Trump.
3) Involves any US federal agency with $100 million in FY 2019 Research and Development earmarked funds.
4) Ties to the HEA of 1965 (Higher Education Act, currently being updated for a renewed passage). Grants and merit awards in Research/Development will be given for STEM in higher education and government jobs. Any federal laboratory job awarded or given under HR 627 parameters are defined by the Stevenson-Wydler Technology Innovation Act of 1980, Sect. 4.* (a brief explanation of what the public law established is below.) What HR 627 will do is EXPAND upon that foundation for use in #5.
5) Expands the data tracking of students as well as economic and demographics. (aka: ‘data rape’).
6) Expands the NSF power and authority (an independent US government agency). The Director of the program HR 627 sets up will be housed in the Office of Science and Technology Policy (Executive Branch).
7) Includes the Congressional catch all phrase ‘and other purposes’.
8) No less than 1 year after HR 627 is made into law (if it survives), the NSF will report (per the Section 37 of the NSF Authorization and Science and Technology Equal Opportunity Act; brief explanation below) to Congress how effective efforts to target women and underrepresented populations have been. Whatever efforts have been successful will be credited to the universal streamlining of data. What isn’t successful will be tweaked and streamlined. ALL data will backtrack to the past 5 years as well.
9) Defines STEM as per the America COMPETES Act, 42 U.S. C. 6621 note (description below) of 2010.

i) Stevenson-Wylder Technology Innovation Act of 1980 established technology centers around the nation to support the innovation in commerce, economics, environment, and social well-being of Americans. Here’s an excerpt from the Public Law 96-480 Cooperation among academia, Federal laboratories, labor, and industry, in such forms as technology transfer, personnel exchange, joint research projects, and others, should be renewed, expanded, and strengthened.” Section 4 (page 2), defines the Secretary of Commerce is in power. Also defines ‘non-profits’. Education is thrown in, too.
**HR 627 will double up on the data sharing.
ii) Public Law 96-516 (“National Science Foundation Authorization and Science
and Technology Equal Opportunities Act”.) stated that beginning in 1982, every 2 years the NSF must include the U.S. Dept. of Education, U.S. Dept. of Labor, the U.S. Dept. of HHS, and others in its data reports.
iii) America COMPETES Act of 2010, 42 U.S. C. 6621 note basically made STEM a federal entity with its own law, funding, activities, and more, especially in education. Public private partnerships (P3s) were also included. The 2010 Act (scroll down to the summary) was a re-authorization of an earlier COMPETES Act. “COMPETES” is short for ‘Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science’

 (*Note: there was an America COMPETES Act 2015 version I wrote about, which also can be tied to the HR 627 above)

 


Closing:

Warriors, I hope you can see that once again, the 116th Congress isn’t really promoting excellent education or terrific jobs. This entire series I’m writing all has ONE word in common: data. HR 627 expands government, but it also expands the data tracking, BUT it’s using STEM to accomplish it.  As was written in the 2010 PCAST Report about STEM:  it would make us STEM people in a STEM nation with a STEM workforce for a STEM economy to gel with the globalism. How’s that for making science a god and turning us into minions, not free willed people to bow to the UN’s agenda?! This is what your federal government of the US has set into place.

Next up in this series: the GREAT Act(s).

It Isn’t All Sunshine And Nuts

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I shared with you how HR 62 would make a grab for our babies from a federal level. Included in that article was how MN is struggling to keep parents in control of their families.

The article before that,  I  showed you how FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy Making Act) would also assist in the grab for our babies, I showed you how OR was considering in-home visits. Also included was how UT has them firmly in place.

In both articles I stressed that the grab for babies/the in-home visits is not exclusive to one State. It’s in all the States and US territories ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) money goes to. If it hasn’t shown up in your State yet, hang on, it is in the works.

GA is struggling with recent news. So are KS and CT.

***For the remainder of this article, I share information sent to me concerning some other warning bells from the latest 3. Be sure to compare it to the information from OR, UT, and MN.

While the tactics may differ a bit, the overall goal of aligning babies to the CCSS Machine is the same. The CCSS Machine pushes ‘readiness’ at all levels, now, since ESSA, and the mandate to expand early childhood ‘learning’, as well as universal PreK, this is why we’re seeing SO much in the news.

1233416_726644914053517_244803995707399755_n
First Up, KS, The Sunflower State:

Warriors, Lisa H., shared this with me via email and wanted you to know about their ABC Program. No, it’s not for teaching little ones their alphabet. It’s called the Attachment Bio-Behavioral Catch-up Program.

 

Lisa shared that the group behind this Program (the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund) was on last year’s legislative calendar and appeared before the KS Education Committee. They are scheduled to appear before the KS Education Committee again this yearn for a follow up. The email went on to share that SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency, a part of the US Dept. of HHS), as well as others are fully backing removing ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences).

So is the CCSS Machine, Warriors, only it’s not for school readiness as much as it is micro-managing citizens. I wrote about this push headed up by the Rockefellers and being embraced by churches, law enforcement, etc. in my Resilience articles. )

What are Lisa’s concerns? Swabbing children’s mouths for cortisol levels and recording the entire in-home session with the parents and children.

While some may read this and think, “Oh, that’s not too bad.” The reason this ministry is able to intrude like this is due to the expansion of P3s (public-private partnerships) in ESSA for education! The in-home visits are part of ESSA’s supposed dedication to student achievement and family engagement.

hegelianed

What it REALLY is, is home invasion by the government. Take into consideration that our U.S. Constitution was supposed to prohibit such (4th Amendment), but with FEPA actively neutering 9 U.S. Constitutional Amendments, the 4th is severely at risk. FEPA also will tie to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). Which, as we know, is used in health care.

Related for KS and other States:
The United Methodist Health Ministry was awarded $650,000.00 by the Kansas Early Childhood Initiative (part of the Kansas Health Foundation) under “access to care”. The Grant was given in 2017 and ends in 2020. The ‘access’ is the ABC Program. The Kansas Health Foundation is a massive P3 and was created as the result of the Hospital Corporation of America purchasing the non-profit Wesley Hospital.

Hospital Corporation of America can be found in 20 States and the United Kingdom. From their latest Annual Report (2017), this quote, “Within our markets, we worked to broaden our service line capabilities by investing in cancer, trauma, stroke, behavioral health and pediatric services. This focus centers on elevating clinical performance and
establishing consistent clinical protocols to achieve better patient outcomes across the
organization.” HCA receives Medicare/aid funding from the federal government, as well as private investors on the Stock Exchange. On page 15, you’ll see how HCA has psychiatrics listed as a way to compete in health care. Page 42 admits the use of third party data contractors to handle patient data. Page 46 gives the list of  the 20 States and the United Kingdom information.

Also joining with the United Methodist Health Ministry is the Kansas  Children’s Service League (KCSL). It’s a part of the National Prevent Child Abuse America. The KCSL is all about collaboration. As in the ‘village’ concept as shared by this Kansas educratic leader.

Kansas has embedded (2015)  a State Wide Initiative called “Kansans Can”. A vital part of the KC Initiative? The “Kansas Can: School Redesign Project”. Warriors, as we know that’s 100% U.S. Dept. of Ed fodder.

 

Next, Stop: GA (Peach State):

Warriors, you may know Georgia is personally, very dear to me. That said, the grab for babies is just as bad in the Peach State as it is in the Sunflower State.

Recently, it was announced that the PreK Development Grant the State received would go to DECAL. DECAL (Dept. of Early Care and Learning) will be“Using grant funds, DECAL will conduct a statewide ECCE needs assessment; develop a statewide strategic plan to strengthen the state’s ECCE system; create resources to inform families about available programs and services; develop groups and opportunities for early childhood educators to share best practices; and create supports for the state’s dual language learners and their families.” (*Note: ECCE is short for Early Childhood Care and Education.)

Under DECAL, the early learning program is called “Bright From the Start”. Warriors, look at the ‘peach packed agenda’ below:

Also, recently in GA , and via Senate Bill 15, the push to expand ‘school safety’ (another ESSA mandate) into private schools. In GA, that also includes homeschoolers. Warriors, as you’ve known, I’ve been warning for years that the federal overreaches in ESSA would assimilate these families.
This will increase, not only the intrusion into family homes, but also set up more data mining and control by Homeland Security Agencies.

Lastly, The Nutmeg State, Connecticut:

Warriors, one of my Anti Fed Ed Warriors,  Anne M. in CT, recently posted a picture about the United Way of CT’s grab for babies and their Moms.

Here’s a screen shot of the United Way in Anne’s community.

Also tied to the (National Inoperability Collective) NIC, is David Wilkinson. Wilkinson, according to his LinkedIN profile as a Director of the White House Office of Social Innovation (under Pres. Obama). You can also tie Wilkinson to the Ounce of Prevention Fund. Back in 2016, I shared with you the OPF’s grab at children via ESSA.

The 2018 NIC Symposium notes and speakers can be located here. The NIC announcement about the Symposium is where you’ll see the ‘wheel house’.

For All The States:

United Way is tied to Google and the United Nations, so, of course, ‘cradle to career’ is the alignment. United Way is partners with the CCSS Machine in many other ways and groups as well.

From 2016, United Way, President Obama’s Promise Neighborhoods (which was a codified mandate in ESSA), U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and “Youth Build”. Also from that year, United Way and those ‘wrap around services’.

From 2017, United Way and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for cradle to career coding.

If you would like to see the United Way’s influence on the current NC State Superintendent,  read this from the election season of 2016. Collectivism was/is the name of the game.

Closing:

Warriors, the cradle to career, then grave will keep being seen in the news as the ESSA mandates continue to ursurp the Tenth Amendment. In my next article, we’ll look at the federal misguidance on ‘school choice’ and the 116th’s bill to support the deception.

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.**

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.

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:

fabianstyle

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!

SEDTAinfra
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.

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.

“Smarty Pants”?! Not!

It’s the first weekend of 2019, Anti Fed Ed Warriors! One of the things media loves to do is create countdown lists from the past year. If it’s not a countdown, it’s a ‘best of’ list to celebrate some minute event. You know, like “2018’s Best Places to Get a Hot Dog” or such.

subjectobject
CCSS: Using subjective groups to appear objective to us.


I don’t really pay attention to those lists. However, there was ONE which did catch my eye. It was a list of the most educated towns in all 50 states. The catch? It’s from a corporate viewpoint (ie: Big Business or Big Biz). With the educratic BS the CCSS Machine has been spitting out for years via Big Biz about education, we need to take a closer look, in my opinion. What makes the corporate world think it’s such an ‘expert’ in education, anyway?!

Three Blind Mice Clip Art N4 image in Vector cliparts category at pixy.orgThe “Survey”:

Business Insider used U.S. Census Bureau data  to publish the “Most Educated Town in Every State” in December 2018.
You had to be at least 25 years of age, have a bachelor’s degree, and have at least 1,000 citizens in your town. From these 3 items, Business Insider discovered that across the nation, education levels are different (gee, really?) and educational achievement can be found at all kinds of levels. (again, do we really need a business publication to tell us that?)
Here’s the map Business Insider created:

biusa.jpg

A quick side note about Business Insider, it’s a German owned tech/digital/business group. Founded in the US, a powerhouse German publishing company bought the group in 2015. While the reliability of BI (Business Insider) has been questioned, the one point remains: millions still access and accept the news the media group sells/shares. Another fact, you’ve got a German based company accessing U.S. Census data.

So, Here’s A Question:

Warriors, is there any connection of the “Most Educated” towns to those “Smart Cities” across America? Look below at the same map from Business Insider with some emphasis I added. Yes, there’s an absolute connection!! 

smarteducate

Where did I find my information to make the connection between “Most Educated” and “Smart Cities”? The U.S. Dept. of Transportation. Why DoT? Smart Cities must change your city’s infrastructure to succeed.

ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) actually mandated innovation and infrastructure changes to be made. However, ESSA’s not the only law of the land allowing this. Many other federal laws are, as well. Anything law with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) will impact infrastructure changes.

Why all the changes? To align our nation with the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations and UNESCO. Many experts on “Smart Cities” will tell you the proof exists to point to a global agenda of being tracked, data mined (aka: data raped) constantly in these Smart Cities. What if you live in the country or rural areas?

How will you be tracked? You’ll be herded into a “most educated” or “Smart City” near you. For example, in the map I created, NC has the ‘most educated’ town near Asheville, NC. Asheville isn’t near a bonafied “Smart City” right now (it is in an “Innovation Zone” for NC). The nearest “Smart City”? Charlotte. 

What’s interesting about Asheville (besides having a ‘most educated’ label now) is that is uses a data raping innovation system called “Passport”. Supposedly Passport is such a hit with big cities and small towns because it can help relieve congestion. Other ‘benefits’ can help police or even make your city/town safer. If you have a ‘safer city’ you have a less stressed citizen group. The less stress you have, the better your mental health will be. I kid you not. Access the ‘white paper’ research behind this, here. Then,see for yourselves a summary in the screen shot:

passportsafe

Think about the ESSA mandates and mental health grabs via ‘Safe Schools’. “Safe Schools” must be in ‘safe cities’. Look at your State’s legislation concerning ‘safe schools’ it’s more control, not more freedom or safety.

Enter The OAS (Organization of American States):

Back in 2016, I showed you that the US was involved in the OAS (Organization of American States) and that some research had been done to connect OAS to “Smart Cities”.

Here’s a screen shot from the OAS Ministers of Education meeting (held in 2017, in the Bahamas):

oassdgWas America there at this meeting in 2017? Yes:

oregonduckoas(*Note the badge on around the lady’s neck. The upper right corner has “OAS”.)

Warriors, see the US Flag? See the message by “OAS”?
oasusflag

Then, this US lady (unknown to me). Look at her expression:

usladyoas
Since much of the OAS mission for education is to add more technology, more early childhood learning all while adhering to the UN’s SDGs, you may like to see what the 10 SEL (Social Emotional Learning) global goals are or the 6 Global Competencies we’ll have to all have. I showed you that and how it ties to ESSA and school safety (aka community safety) in October 2018.

Warriors, in 2018, OAS joined Amazon Web Services for a joint ‘research’ paper (aka: slick spin doctor document) on Smart Cities and technology. At the center? Five G (5G Technology).

Warriors, if you want to learn about the ‘social acceptance’ expected of We the People when it comes to “Smart Cities” we need only to look at the short video featured at the 2018 Connected  Smart Cities Conference. The Conference is a part of the “Open and Agile Smart Cities” (OASC) based in Europe.

Within the 7 minutes you’ll learn quite a bit about the agenda, you’ll be able to apply some of what’s already in place in Europe to America, especially as business stands to gain a fortune via “Smart Cities”. You’ll be able to learn citizens have a manifesto to adhere to, that P3s (public private partnerships) must be used. (*Note: P3s are fascism in nature, therefore totally un-American, yet we’re so run over by the CCSS Machine and DC legislation,{ESSA’s an example} it’s treasonous.)

There are quite a few ‘alphabet soup’ acronyms given by the speaker. Here is a brief list and how it connects to the US and/or Smart Cities:

DIN: (Deutsches Institut fur Normung) This is a German Investment Group with strong ties to American auto industry, materials testing, internet, and healthcare technology). DIN’s roots go back about 100 years.

EC: European Commission (has an Urban Agenda for citizens which involves compliance. Also works hand in hand with the EU, European Union) Many workforce/education models from the EC have been embedded in US legislation, mainly at the federal levels.

BSI: British Standards Institute offers business, medical, and industry parameters. Has an office in the US and impacts several aspects of daily living. Also deals in investing.

ETSI (2017): European Telecommunications Standards Institute. Handles technology and digital aspects. From the “Smart Cities” aspect, it has developed  Context Information Management (harnesses all the smart device data available*. For example, your smart meter, smart car, in home assistant, etc.) and City Digital Profiles. (*the pdf is from the Open and Agile Smart Cities Conference explaining how the data is collected. There are a few good illustrations.)

ISO: International Organization for Standards This international group is not only key to business and industry, but is 100% involved with the SDGs.

ITU: International Telecommunication Union This Union is big on technology, internet, data, and, AI (artificial intelligence). ITU is a part of WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society). WSIS is a key UN partner. In April 2019, the Summit will focus on the advancement of the SDGs and includes UNESCO as well as a host of CCSS Machine connected groups tied to all of these listed.

Horizon 2020: This is an EC massive initiative. Basically, it’s Research and Development for innovation for the entire European Commission. Not only does it impact businesses, but will use job skill training for employment. Backed by P3s (as the EC calls it P2P) and legislation. Of the information I found, the funds to pay for all this alignment have been extended. One of the grants used was to break hundreds of years old religious practices to promote tolerance. Science and healthcare are also involved.

EFSI: European Fund for Strategic Investment is part of the EC as well. Under the EFSI is what is called the Juncker Plan. The Plan is to find ways to make Europe as mighty as in once was by investing in all aspects of life.

EIB: European Investment Bank is the financial arm of the EU. They invest heavily in “Smart Cities”.

Closing:

Warriors, I’m not sure how ‘smart’ the CCSS Machine thinks it is, I do know it’s got a bloated image of itself, especially when it’s assumed we are ‘dumb bunnies’ who will roll over and accept all this blindly. The reason I took such time to dig into this one Business Insider article was I knew the real truth would never come out. There is much, here which connects to education, but there’s EVEN more which shows the pattern to assaulting our freedoms! We MUST share this type of truth, my followers. If we will not stand for freedom, who will?!

Bowling Us Over

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’re mere days away from Christmas 2018. If you’re a college football fan, you know that the 2018-19 Bowl season has begun. From 12/15 to early January 2019, about 40 games will be held. That’s 80 colleges and/or universities to be in the forefront.

****Even if you don’t follow college football, your TV, radio, and social media may be lit up with ads for these higher education institutions.
(If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I’ve shared a multitude of times how the HEA (Higher Education Act) is part of the birth to death education reform. Sports, sadly is among the programs being turned into ‘back door’ ways to force the CCSS Machine’s alignment to global education, as well as ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) ).

However, there’s another agenda behind all this:

                                                                     Money and Control!

Bowl games mean sponsors (as in corporate America which are either globally connected or are involved in P3s (public private partnerships) with the colleges and universities).

As such, bowl games mean big bucks. For the cities chosen, big boosts to the local economy. Big games mean MORE money and attention. These cities take full advantage of the teams presence. Most of the bigger cities bowl games are held in our already aligned to the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) via ‘Smart Cities’ or have, in some way, already implemented the very beginnings of becoming a “Smart City”.

So what exactly will these 80 some odd universities and colleges be highlighting while you’re watching?

1) How great they are at education (academics);
2) doing good in the community (social impact or social justice);
3) creating jobs (innovation and/or technology), as so on;
4) how much your student will miss out on all this if they decide to go anywhere else to study.

Ads may point out how much STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is in the school, or how aligned to STEM your local community already is.  In 2017, I showed you the Presidential and federal Congress double speak about STEM.

********************************
Also, Warriors, the ads for the schools may NOT be so bold as to use STEM in their language, they may tone the hype down or use other related educratic buzzwords/phrases, but it’s still the same message.

ligned to STEM and CCSS.
(*Note: be sure to access the provided links in the comment section. These links expose how sports have been used to create not only money and control for corporate America, but UN-led education alignment. Near the 16:10 time stamp, listen in on how the 2018-19 academic year will use CCR, College/Career Readiness as a stranglehold on students who wish to play sports.)

College Alignment Recently:

While visiting out of town family recently, I saw this play out during the regular college football season. One local TV station uses a STEM camera for their weather. I switched channels to see if the other local stations gave free shouts out to the UN’s weapon of choice in ruining education (yes, STEM is the tool). Yes, one other station was doing the same thing. It’s not just a weather camera anymore..it’s a STEM weather camera.

weatherstem(*Note: Warriors, if you’re curious as to what the older weather cameras look like, search your encyclopedias or conduct a quick internet search to see the differences between the old school cameras and this new STEM weather camera.)

If you’d like to learn more about the international STEM weather camera partnership between the country of Panama and FSU (Florida State University), go here. If you’d like my previous exposure of how FSU was key to the CCSS aligned assessments, find that here. Look below and you’ll see that the STEM cameras are designed to do much more than watch the weather.

fsustem

Of course the STEM cameras will do more than track weather, it’s the UN, after all, which is setting this up across America! How so? Our continued partnership with the UN and all it’s arms and associated groups!

If you’d like to see the middle school (WV) which has recently gotten a STEM weather camera (which also comes complete with STEM aligned math lessons), go here. You’ll be interested to learn that a software company (UCompass) in Tallahassee, FL (where FSU’s main campus is) is involved quite heavily.

To see just how UN-friendly some other colleges/universities are, my April 2018 article will be enlightening.

UCompass:

In 2016, the founder of WeatherSTEM (also was the founder of UCompass), sold his education software and technology to the State of Florida for $5.75 million dollars. That online learning platform is used in FL Virtual Schools and elsewhere in North America.
Before FL, Mansouri was in PA.

Here are the partners of UCompass:

2) From September 2018, the push for STEM from the PTA (Parent Teacher Assoc.).
3) In August 2017, I showed you how STEM directly undermines quality teacher led education and fits the idea of skewed child psychology. AI (Artificial Intelligence) fits right into this.
4) Globalization by American associations; August 2018.
5) From the Patriot Institute, my May 2018 look at the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Assoc.) and their sellout to the CCSS Machine.
6) In March 2017, I showed you how the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government was using NASA to create ‘citizen scientists’. It was a ‘back door’ way to create data tracking trails on not only schools and their students, but entire families and towns. That very same program (GLOBE) is a key portion of the UCompass’s WeatherSTEM. GLOBE is a US government program, so federal funds go towards it. Go here to see how GLOBE and WeatherSTEM are connected.
7) Congress loves STEM! Mountains of legislation proves it.

Closing:

Warriors, I’ve given you lots to review and/or discover. Take time to digest all of this news. Don’t simply think, ‘well if I stop watching college football’ all these mandates and educratic overreaches will just go away’.

No, we need to petition our sports teams to divorce themselves from a global agenda and get back the ‘business’ at hand: sports; sports for the love of the game, not sports as a cash cow.

We need to run educratic idiots OUT of the NCAA and the NFL. We need the corporate takeover to take a step back and get out of education altogether.

Remember, “Smart Cities” run on taxpayer dollars, as do the NCAA and NFL.

Sure, D.C. tells you it’s their funding. But, Warriors, their funding is OUR tax money! It’s being used against us.
Add to this with the fact many hardworking men and women, boys and girls, choose to spend their money on sports. How egregious is it that THOSE dollars are being misused to force alignment to College/Career Readiness (which is STEM and CCSS all rolled together)?!

So, while you enjoy the bowl games, or not; I hope you listen and look carefully at what’s being sold to those younger folks looking forward to being on a college sports team.
