NC’s Brain Freeze

(Featured picture is courtesy of My Cute Clipart)

My fellow Warriors, sometimes in research for educratic BS (or related ties), you find something so ridiculous, it’s hard to pass it up.

Warriors, believe it or not, NC (the State where I reside) sends out a weekly email with the week in review for education bills in our General Assembly. So imagine my surprise when I see NC HB 30.

The purpose? To declare an official State Frozen Treat.

My friends, how woeful it seems; all this time, the taxpayers have been denied an OFFICIAL dessert of a frozen variety.

Go ahead, laugh. I certainly did. All the things which need legislation AND this comes up in education related business? Let’s see what we can find hiding in the freezer….

First, A Fun Fact:

Did you know July is National Ice Cream month? The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) established that and President Reagan declared it back in 1984. We’ll come back for a second scoop on information about IDFA in a bit.

NC Has A ‘Problem’?

From the 2019 NC General Assembly, a look at HB 30, The NC Official Frozen Treat Act:

Warriors, Rep. Torbett is a 5 term Representative. According to VoteSmart, his campaign funding can be tied to a few CCSS Machine member groups in NC. The NC Chamber of Commerce, Wells Fargo, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, American Airlines, General Motors, and, Duke Energy name just a few.

Ironically the NC Dental Association also helped fund Rep. Torbett’s last campaign. I’m truly hoping the NC dentists will be ready for all those brain frozen patients when it comes time for filling cavities. (The NC Dental Assoc. is part of the American Dental Assoc. which has evidence that ice cream alone adds 6.5% more sugar to your diet and therefore can cause tooth decay.)

If you look at the Committee assignments for Mr. Torbett you’ll not see any farmers or dairy councils. He is the Vice Chair for the NC House Appropriations, though. 

Warriors, before we go further back in the ‘freezer’, go back and look at HB 30’s text.

Ice cream contributes $39 billion to the US economy but only employs roughly 200,000 people? Somebody’s sure ‘double dipping’. (Gee, could it be a brain freeze AND Common Core math-itis?)


NICRA (National Ice Cream Retailers Association):

This is a trade organization which serves up ice cream and frozen treats across the globe. Much of the service goes on here in the US.
NICRA
is headquartered in MO.
Part of
NICRA’s mission is to have education as part of a career track. Scholarships are available to young students for tuition, room, board, and school supplies.
Listed among the
NICRA’s Supplier Leadership Officers is a representative of ConAgra Foods. ConAgra is a CCSS Machine member.

NC’s Dept of Agriculture & Consumer Services:

Back in 1991, the NC Dept. of Ag/Consumer Services inducted Mr. Kilgore into the NC Agricultural Hall of Fame. Look at the amount of money one ice creamery made.

Second Scoop, IDFA:

Warriors, if you are wondering where Rep. Torbett got the $39 billion figure, it is right off the IDFA’s website for National Dairy Month. So here’s a question, since this is a State specific bill WHY the national figures?

Why not use the NC economic figures and job numbers? By the way, if you want local dairy economic figures and jobs created, the IDFA has a mobile app you can use.

Warriors
, be sure to look at the IDFA’s ‘issues’. You’ll see bioengineered food, NAFTA (which can be tied back to WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), the (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) STEM Act of 2015, HEA (Higher Education Act), and ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), and a few more ‘sprinkles’.

If you look at a recent IDFA Press Release you’ll see an international sweetener conference was held in FL. Among the topics: the US-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) Trade Agreement. This will also tie back to ESSA and its aligned workforce education track. If you didn’t know it the USMCA replaced NAFTA.

Warriors, hold on to your toppings! Look below to see not only the IDFA supports Agenda 2030, but other US organizations connected to the dairy industry do, too!

To see the 2016 Rotterdam Declaration, read it here. 

Warriors, just yesterday, I exposed a huge UN-led grab via STEM for our farmers. One of the biggest connectors was the FAO of the UN (Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN). Now, take into consideration that not only are the farmers getting the indoctrination, the students in schools are. Most especially that going vegan will cut down climate change.

How can you go vegan when you’re eating ice cream made from cow’s milk?! How will States like NC, agriculture based, have a thriving economy or all those jobs, if you wipe out dairy and livestock?

What do you do with the cows? Tax the farmers on the cow’s methane like CA?! In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown certainly sold the ‘global warming’ via tooting cows. In late 2018, the regulations took place state-wide.
Sadly, this is a grab to mandate what farmers feed their cows. How about this, just good ole plain grass. It’s how God made them have the capability to produce milk.

No telling how long it will be before idiotic legislation like this comes to NC, after all, there are plenty of cows here, too!
Also, think about it, since taxing folks with gassy bovines has begun, what about those who eat dairy products and produce similar results?

I can tell you that NC has a methane recapture program going to help create renewable energy. 

The Cherry On Top For NC:

Warriors, why would a seemingly silly bill about declaring ice cream as the official NC frozen treat lead us down so many twists and turns? Because, as we’ve learned time and time again, the CCSS  Machine will take the simplest joys in education and dumb them down, while gushing how ‘sweet it is’.

So, what’s the real ‘cherry on top’ for NC via HB 30? It’s not the endorsement of good times or summer fun, it’s helping set up a dairy assembly line of worker drones for NC jobs and the NC/national economy.

Look at what NC’s got in its Career Clusters for CTE (Career Tech Education):

ncctedairy

Warriors, if you’ve not seen the 2018 Career Clusters Guide, look at NC’s. It’s broken down over 120 pages and has a one-track-so-you-can-learn-to-earn system.

**Look at the ‘school choices’ involved in Career Clusters! This is further proof ‘choice’ is a fallacy of what’s learned in schools. It’s all the same for the same results!**

So, why did Rep. Torbett sponsor such a frivolous bill as HB 30? I’ve no proof of ‘why’, but I can show you why I believe he did:

Closing:

Warriors, there you have it, one sour dish of alignment. When will our legislators skip the ‘sweet’ deceptions of globalism and bring America back? As you can see it is absolutely fruitless to say it’s all one major political party’s mess.

So, now we can all see why little ole HB 30 was in an educational email.
How many of us want to bet the only connection most folks make between ice cream and education is that the school cafeteria may serve it for dessert.

Dear Valued Person

Hello my Anti Fed Ed Warriors!

Much of the focus, last week was on the FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act) hearing. It is imperative we keep up any pressure to influence D.C. to #StopFEPA!

Also happening last week, was the third U.S. Senate HELP HEA (Higher Education Act) Hearing. If you missed the Hearing, you can watch the archived version. Scroll down to ‘watch video’. If you missed my article about the Hearing and how it’s tying into the global education agenda, access that here. (*Note: the Hearing is just over 2 hours)

What’s the ‘catch’ about the HEA Hearing? Well, Warriors, there are several.

First, the HEA was created back in 1965. It’s been re-authorized roughly the same amount of times as the original ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act). The HEA was LAST re-authorized (in its entirety) in 2008.

Then, there’s the latest re-branding of the HEA. Instead of the “Higher Education Act”, the name has been updated to now be known as the “Higher Education Innovation Act”.

Warriors, remember, this version belongs to the U.S. Senate. The U.S. House also has a re-branded HEA title in their version: PROSPER (Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity Through Education Reform). I wrote about the global ties to the House’s version of the HEA back in Dec. 2017. Earlier this year, I updated the information on PROSPER, here.

Next, the obvious fact that the HEA is the LAST link in the CCSS Machine’s chain for grid-locking ALL education to the workforce based, competency leveling assessing in EVERY level of schooling.

The HEA Hearing last week was supposedly about protecting taxpayers. (Who, by the way, are expected to one more time foot the bills for education reform which is 100% illegally based!) Warriors, any time Senator Lamar Alexander is leading the way in education reform, NO taxpayer is protected!

Look below, this is from one of my 2016 articles:

HEAblastThe last ‘catch’ of the HEA Hearing is this:  demagogue judgement on every ‘valued person’ in higher education. The judgement? “Poor outcomes” in student performance mean taxpayers suffer.

demagouge

Of course, we know, thanks to the CCSS Machine, that ‘student outcome‘ is tied to teachers leadership. It’s been done so in a way which is demeaning and outrageous.
Congress should be treating students and teachers as the wonderfully gifted, ‘valued people’ they are!

Notice, D.C. is great about pointing to every person in America as part of the problem, while the REAL issue(s) will continue to go unaddressed! The leadership assumes the taxpayers are idiots. This has been happening for decades, Warriors. By both political parties!

Warriors, think about it, when it comes to your education activism.
How many times has leadership deemed you as somehow ‘misinformed’?! How many deaf ears have been turned our way when it comes to speaking out?!
MLKquote

The “New” V.M. (Value Meter):

As if the demagogue leadership isn’t insulting our nation enough, the CCSS Machine member organization, AACC (American Association of Community Colleges), has created a new voluntary framework to measure higher education students. It deals with ‘accountability’.

What the AACC isn’t telling you, is that they are a UN (United Nations) partner organization. As such, you can bet the ‘new’ accountability measure for ‘valued people’ will be full of global reform.

The HEA Hearing from last week also included higher education ‘accountability’.

I’ll get to the framework shortly. I want to pause first to make a few points for those of you who may wish to share this article.

A) Community colleges are used by all ages and from every educational choice. The CCSS Machine’s grasp on the community colleges across the nation has put the community college in the exact center of the one-way-to-learn-so-you-will-earn education reform. The UN’s global education also includes the one-way-to-learn-so-you-will-earn system.

B) For many students and families, community colleges are the ‘go to’ answer for not only paying much less (have you noticed how the CCSS Machine agenda includes ‘free’ community college?), BUT, it’s where you can supposedly ‘get ahead’ faster.


C) If you’re attending community college after a public school graduation, it’s here your CCSS Machine
 pre-determined career track will continue. 

D) If you’re attending one of these schools as part of your homeschooling, or immediately upon completing your homeschooling requirements, it’s community college where you’ll be sucked into the CCSS Machine’s agenda and data mining system.


E) If you’ve decided community college is a great way to begin a second career or have been out of school for many years, the CCSS Machine agenda will encompass you as well.


F) If your job requires you to attend community college as a way to earn a promotion, you, too will be ensnared by the CCSS Machine’s global education idea of trained workers for specific jobs.

The Framework:

Warriors, by making this framework voluntary, post-secondary schools will be able to choose to belong to this system. However, as we’ve seen with ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) ‘choice’ (when it comes to accountability) is distorted.
Hang on, though, Warriors; there are two things to point out here:

A) The AACC isn’t Congress, however, the AACC Advocates lobby Congress to help promote federal agenda for community colleges! What’s more? This group is aggressive in pushing education policy.


B) We need to watch HOW Congress will re-write the HEA in both Chambers to see how mandated ‘accountability’ will become in post-secondary schools. The mandates for K-12th grades are tremendously overreaching.

US fed statute

The AACC Framework measures students via data tracking, sharing student data among every voluntary framework school (aka: Pathway 2.0 Schools).

According to the KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) Sample, this Framework will take several years before any real results can be seen. ‘Gateway’ (college level) English and Math courses and assessments are to be measured. How well your student (or even you) persist from one semester to another is gauged. Then there is ‘how many credits you earn’ while attending one of these community colleges participating. You’ll also see the ‘readiness’ factor used in this system. “How ready are Johnny and Suzy for community college?”

Warriors, interestingly enough, I did find at least two presentations, here in America, for ‘gateway’ Math and English in the community college landscape. The first one appears to be from MO and was presented by the “Complete College” campaign. The second is from a VA community college and shows the ties to specific ways the ‘gateways’ are tied to local economics, race, and, gender.

You also may find it interesting that in the UK (United Kingdom) a 2 year Gateway English and Math is used in not only higher education, but apprenticeships, and other workforce-based competency ways.

As we’ve seen here in America, apprenticeships are also CCSS Machine aligned and are used as a way for the demagogue-led system to ‘sell’ more jobs. We know Congress is fully behind aligning education to workforce needs.
