In The Meantime..

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as we start a new month and await the results of the 2018 mid-term elections, I’ve got a few things to share.

 I’m not sure about you, but I’m puzzled that no matter what I’ve been sharing, as far as anti global or fed-led education news, I’m being told it’s not that important, that it all needs to wait until AFTER the 6th of November. THEN, we can get back to fighting the overreaches in education. I’ve also been told that anti fed education overreach evidence I’ve found isn’t a big enough deal to actually come to fruition.

Really?! What if those folks we need to get information to could actually shift the votes if they have the facts NOW and not later? What about those candidates who might truly NOT know all the facts; the opportunity to inform them will either be non-existent, or, not long enough to make a difference. What about the danger in our assumption that Congress would actually STOP creating federally led education overreach?

My point is simply this: EVERYDAY is the BEST day to fight to save our students! We shouldn’t be the type of citizens who load all our eggs in one basket (mid-term elections) while the varmints nip at our baskets.  We do not have the luxury of time on our sides. Quite the opposite, we should be using every moment to continue to inform others! We’ve seen the CCSS Machine use this against us. We cannot be lulled into a false sense of security. We must be diligent, we must be prepared!!

Looking Forward:

Let’s face it, Warriors, the federal Congress will not have much time to conduct our business after the November 6th elections. I’m pretty sure your State legislators will be on a less-busy track, too. From what I found both the House and Senate will be in session from 11/13-16 and 11/27-30th. In December, both meet 12/4-7th and 10th-13th. Then, both are back beginning Jan. 3rd, 2019 with the 116th Session. (The US Senate plans to meet on 11/26 and 12/3-4, 14th) So, in that respect I can understand why some would want to slack off a bit in our War Vs the Core. However, WE cannot be those types of people who’d rather react than be ready.

Happy-new-year-2019-clipart

We’ve not got the time to loose! While those seeking office are distracted, what are some of the things we should be looking forward to (as well as preparing for) in 2019?

Showing Us The Money:

First, if you missed it, all those federally led overreaches in the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills which were passed into law, will kick in. Don’t be surprised if you see more STEM federal legislation, either. (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Why STEM? STEM is a tool of the United Nations and their Agenda 2030. As we get closer to 2030, expect way more STEM in America from federal and State levels.

Part of the federal educratic overreach will be coming at us from the U.S. Dept. of HHS (Health and Human Services). In fact the US HHS has 2019 Goals of their own. The main one? Expansion of government run health care. It very much intersects via ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) Just one of the ways is the workforce pipeline.

healthpipeline
(Source. Note that ‘students’ appears 4 times in this Congressional justification for HHS funds in 2019)

Then, there’s the Kaiser Family Foundation (as in Kaiser Permanente tied to the Centers for Disease Control and their united efforts with Rockefeller for resilience education) Report which gives their outlook on FY 2019 as far as health care costs (associated with Medicaid) increasing. Part of the reason why? Those expanded and increasing behavioral health care and mental health programs. (Gee, the fact they’re popping up in schools wouldn’t increase the costs as well, would it?) 

Then, There’s The Labor:

In 2019, Congress will get to vote on the new NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). It’s been re-branded, too. The new name is USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement). NAFTA/USMCA has a Labor Advisory Committee (LAC). In the LAC Report from 2018 the Committee is basically trying to scare Congress into submission, from the way the language reads.

For example, the LAC tells Congress that USMCA COULD negatively impact the US workforce. How? existing NAFTA conditions have already reduced income for non-college workers in trade industries. Those who have graduated college and work in the trade industries are also facing a smaller pay check.

Their research says 2/3 of Americans are non-college graduates. The solution? Everything the LAC suggests. The main suggestions? Prepare the workforce for jobs of the future. There’s also rebuild the economy and modernize infrastructure (code for job training supersedes academics; and data tracking systems)!

Warriors, this has been the  CCSS Machine plan all along. It completely gels with the UN (United Nations) and their SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

LAC also reported that the new NAFTA (USMCA) could negatively impact all US public services and our property taxes. Warriors, basically, the USMCA would give more economic teeth to current policies which involve labor.

To access the LAC Report, go here.
If you’d like to read the MSNBC article on the new NAFTA, find that here.
Since part of the globalization of America involves education, healthcare, and labor, you may find the cost of going global is steeper than we realize.

Sure, the UN’s saying via their SDGs that the world will have quality education (ie: one way to learn so you can earn); that all poverty will be gone (ie: we’ll all be the same pay level); and that health care will be superior (ie: we will be micromanaged and controlled), has anyone really looked at what Americans will have to sacrifice to go from total freedom to total control? Has anyone calculated the loss of life to make all this happen? Has there been anyone to say, ‘Hey wait, paychecks matter. I want to feed my family and be independent!’

I did find 2 such articles which counter the spin of the MSNBC article as well as the LAC Report. I think you may find them worthwhile in reading.

Then, read the recent BBC article where surgeons are loosing dexterity to operate. How? The educratic shift!! We’ve often said in our War Vs the Core that we knew this type of situation would occur. It has begun….

lipstickpigWarriors, 2019 is the “Year of the Pig” according to the Chinese calendar. While it is considered to be a great thing (blessed with a super personality and have great fortune), to me it’s ironic. Why? We have had so much lipstick on a pig CCSS Machine moves to date, it’s amazing we’re not all knee deep in pig poop. To see 2019 contain more of the same? UGH!

Why We Should Watch The Economy:

Warriors, like it or not, the CCSS Machine has lock, stock, and barrel tied education to the economy.  So has Congress. So has the United Nations.

Education tied to the economy makes us easier to data mine and track. Education has become a weapon used against us. Our students from all ages and educational choices are being sacrificed. The cost isn’t simply dollars and cents.

Here are some documents for the global 2019 impacts we face as Americans:
1) The UN World Economic Status (NAFTA is embedded in this), education is embedded 10 times, workforce is woven in 6 different ways. “2019” appears 144 times, and, technology is present 20 times.

2) Much of the educratic CCSS Machine shift in education can be traced to private finances. CCSS Machine member Goldman Sachs (GS)  provides this document for their clients. ‘2019’ is mentioned 8 times (mostly to say they feel a recession could happen, but not likely), there is no mention of education, however. ‘Labor’ is embedded in this report 7 times. The biggest tie to GS and the educratic shift bowing to the economy is the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. I covered how that impacts education head on in this article.

3) From the World Bank:

2019worldbank
(Source)
From this June 2018 World Bank Document on Global Economic Prospects, education is embedded 17 different times. All of them tie directly to jobs and economic growth as well as ‘skill attainment’.

4) From the U.S. based “Conference Board, Inc.” a slightly gloomier aspect for jobs in 2019. However, the reason I’m including it here, is the paragraph you see below:
“The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the successor to the North American Free Trade Agreement, largely keeps provisions governing commerce between the three countries the same. This should come as a relief to businesses in most industries. One notable exception is the auto industry which must not only contend with continued steel tariffs, but also stepped up requirements on worker compensation and the use of components from outside the three countries. With auto sales and employment trends already flat to declining, industry executives must respond to a riskier environment. Upward wage pressure will be further exacerbated by a shortage of blue-collar workers who are seeing their wages rise faster than their white-collar counterparts.” (Source)

In 2019, don’t be surprised if you see an increased amount of attention placed on indigenous languages. The United Nations has declared 2019 as “The Year of Indigenous Languages”. This reaffirms the UN 2016 Indigenous Resolution’s efforts to make sure no one is left out of the shift to adhering to Agenda 2030. (Where you’ll find the SDGs.) That said, you’ll see an increase in Agenda 2030 hype, programming, and everything which connects the UN to us. Oh, and STEM (as a main tool to shift education from academics to workforce based)? Plenty of national, regional, and international events in 2019. All for the ‘next generation of learners’.

Expect more fodder from Congress, too, Warriors. Like this email excerpt from the Chairwoman of the U.S. House’s Education and Workforce Committee, (Foxx):

foxxpledge
Her pledge is in full support of the President’s Pledge. Part of that Pledge? An expansion in US government with an entire new Council for Workforce aligned education. IF you care to see the Ed/Workforce hype video, here it is.

Closing:

Warriors, there will be more to watch for in 2019, but all the things I’ve featured above directly play into the elections of 2018, but it seems no one wants to consider how much these things do.

No matter how red or blue you vote, know that BOTH parties are directly responsible for the educratic nightmare we’re faced with daily. Neither will ‘fix’ it or ‘ditch’ what’s been years in the making. They love the attention, control, and profit too much.

We need Independent representatives. Constitutional representatives. Folks like you and I, who care, who fight, who don’t sell out to the CCSS Machine.

Phase One Complete?

Warriors Against the Core, we know the “Core” encompasses not only USA education, but education across the world. The ties between the global powers which are in place and our classrooms have been exposed over and over again.

Yet, the CCSS Machine still finds ways to crank out more alignment to carry out the ‘one-way-to-learn-so-you-can-earn-while-being-a-good-citizen-who’s-tracked-for-the-greater-global-good’.

Lady Liberty Weeps 2

It’s all been a big phase to eliminate education as we knew it and replace it with something utterly foreign and harsh. The phase, however, Warriors, has been accelerated quite a bit.

A Quick Review:

Sept. 4th, 2018: I showed you the real agenda for the ‘defacto’ government educratic moves. These moves are the same ones as the globally led moves: bare minimum academics and heaps of workforce skill preparation.

Sept. 6th, 2018: DeVos signs the G20 Education DeclarationHer trip to Argentina was on our taxpayer dime to agree to the G20 (Group of 20) global education.

Sept. 18th, 2018: The in-depth look behind the new morality assessments ties to global education in big ways. This will ensnare Americans quicker than we are prepared for IF we do not arm ourselves NOW.

Next, in the phase to complete America’s shift in education to workforce prep:
Oct. 3rd, 2018, I showed you the latest initiative of UNICEF:  “Generation Unlimited” .

Also for clarity:
The G20 Declaration for education was about getting the agreeing countries to align to  THEIR plan.  UN/UNESCO framework, agenda and all gels right in with the G20 Declaration on purpose.

ung20
Warriors, this picture was from 2016. The UN’s leader was addressing the G20.


New Developments?

Warriors, since this articles, I’ve been contacted by a great education activist, Paul R.
He’s a blogger, researcher, and we’ve compared notes before. So imagine my surprise when he asked if the same folks behind the G20 agreement were the same as the UNICEF’s “Generation Unlimited”. 

In the October 3rd article I showed you the Youth 2030 was a part of the initiative. Interestingly enough is that the UN has a Youth 2030 Strategy that was launched in late September 2018.

So, going back to Argentina’s summit,  there was a meeting for the Y20 (Youth 20). On Twitter the Y20 is handled as the Youth2030.
If you look at the policies to be taken back to each of the G20 countries and implemented from the Y20 meeting, you’ll find many of the exact points from Generation Unlimited match those positions!

Warriors, going back to the G20 Summit, UNESCO’s website detailed the Y20 Meeting. To see their spin on how great the meeting was and the upcoming implementations of the agenda are, read this.

Going back to the Generation Unlimited article, you’ll see the GPE, (Global Partnership for Education) is supported by our Congress (and our tax dollars). However, from one of the newer items Paul showed me, I found the Rockefeller Foundation supports GPE, too.

(*Note: the Rockefellers, as you know, have long been aiming to restructure the USA. (Their Resilience Cities project ties into the Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA, and Social emotional learning)  ).

Next Steps For Us:

So, Warriors, it appears the evidence points to the same groups at roughly the same time carrying out well planned phases. Does GU (Generation Unlimited) equal the ‘step one’ of the G20 Education Declaration? It appears that indeed it does! If so, look at the short time span between Declaration and Initiative!

Closing:

Do we wait for what’s next to occur before we demand an END to the American dependence on UN led education? NO!!

If you’ll remember, the State Dept. had announced (2017) that by Dec. 31st, 2018, we’d be totally out of UNESCO. In April of this year, the New York Times asked a question about all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the US. Here’s an excerpt from their article, “If the United States withdraws from Unesco, it would remain a state party, having signed and ratified the World Heritage Convention.”

Write or call the White House! Let the President know you, as an American, are fed up with the globalization of our education, as well as the indoctrination and overreach which is part and parcel of the alignment. (*Note: not sure what to say? The government in Australia has sent a strong message to the UN  you could use as an idea. Their ‘we’ll take no part of socialism masquerading as environmentalism’ is brilliant.)

Call or write your U.S. House of Representatives and tell them to get HR 193 out of Committee and onto the floor for a vote to PASS it. What’s HR 193? It’s the bill which would repeal  the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 and other specified related laws. Once the House passes it, it would move to the Senate. Hopefully, from there, to the President to become law. Wouldn’t that make a midterm to remember?!

Lastly, get involved with the “Get Us Out of the UN” project. It’s been going on for 50 years, now. It’s part of the John Birch Society. Access all their resources to see how you can join in to save our nation and our education. Sign the Petition by the JBS, if you choose.

For What It’s Worth

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, for today’s article, I’ve got odds and ends to share. Each ‘odd and end’ is somehow connected to the CCSS Machine.

Think of it as you are cleaning out your closet. You know you’ve had the items for awhile. You know you’ve meant to pay attention to them before now.  I must confess, the last time I let items pile up in the closet was July 2018.

Let the ‘cleaning’ begin!

washing_machine_5
Odds/Ends #1:

Proposed IRS changes will mean those education vouchers (or Education Savings Accounts) will mean more interference AND CCSS Machine alignment by  P3s (public private partnerships). How this ties to the current ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandates? More P3s in education; creating money trails which follow children and set up data raping files. If you missed how or why Education Savings Accounts are actually a toxic move, read my archived research.

The ‘starch in our underwear’ for this Odds/Ends is that the vouchers/education savings accounts are a trap. They promise ‘school choice’ which ESSA cannot deliver upon! Why? ESSA mandated that all education be the same in content: post-secondary readiness.

Also, think about it Warriors, if it is to be truly YOUR choice of where you money goes, why do you need (or want) the government’s strings? You do NOT need their permission to make a choice when it comes to your children.

Warriors
, you actually can weigh in on this. All public comments must be submitted to the federal government by October 11, 2018. The public hearing for the IRS changes will take place November 5, 2018.
(*Note: even some groups which are part of the CCSS Machine are protesting these changes.)

Odds/Ends #2:

Borderless Teaching Academy is a small on-line community geared for homeschoolers. Especially those in K-2nd grade. I saw a Facebook ad for them one day last week. While I had my suspicions, I knew looking a bit closer at the new ‘school’ would be in order.

bordless

Warriors, I’m sure you can spot the ‘stain’ of the CCSS Machine right away! Now what’s a bit disappointing for me, is the ad on Facebook simply said the ‘school’ was a community of homeschooling parents.
Sadly, as I looked around the website, I saw lesson plans for sale. In my mind, that’s not so much a community, as it is consumerism.
If you look at the founder for Borderless, you’ll see lots of traditional school class time and instruction.

When you click on the block where you see the CCSS logo, you’ll be taken to a page for Kindergarten lessons. Be sure to look, though. Read how this teacher wants you to teach Kindergarten.
Lessons are for sale, sight unseen. (*Note: while the page says for Kindergarten, the web address simply says ‘skills’.)

bordercore

Warriors, if you missed my look at how ESSA is harming our earliest learners, please go back and read it. Then, compare those leads to what you are seeing in 2018. If you believe homeschools are safe from ESSA, please refer to this.

Odds/Ends #3:

EdReports.Org, this was another lead to look further into. According to the information in the advertisement, all you need to help improve K-12 education, is passion and access to ‘high quality instructional materials’. Your ‘job’? Content reviewers for ELA (English Language Arts). Sounds kind of loaded, doesn’t it?!

Warriors, according to their 2017 Organizational Report, they are a non-profit with free resources for schools, districts, and are designed for education by educators.

edreport2018

That said, the measuring for standards based education is STILL there. The CCSS Machine is still visible, too. How? In the EdReports.org Mission Statement you’ll ‘rigorous’ and ‘college career readiness standards’. You’ll also see the claim that the CCSS  aligned resources aren’t easy to spot, so these experts can help point you to them.

Warriors, to be honest not a lot of changes to EdReport.org have happened since I first exposed them in 2015. Their tie to the CCSS Machine (besides what is already showing?): The Annenberg Foundation.

Odds/Ends #4:

GSG Impact Summit 2018 was something I was sent on Twitter. The image was one which smacks of the CCSS Machine’s agenda not only for education, but globalism.

gsgimpact

So, what ‘tipping point’?According to the description for this Summit, these global investors want force such changes in our world that by 2020, it’s all about to tip their way. Read their agenda here. So why should we as education Warriors, be concerned with this type of investment meeting? Social impact in today’s world means social justice. Social justice is a UN led activity and is laced throughout every Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs). These Goals are embedded in American education. Impact investing involves P3s (public private partnerships). Impact investing brings bitcoins and blockchains (massive data raping systems).

Is education involved? You bet. Are there CCSS Machine member groups involved? Bingo! Among partners (some will be speaking) are the Ford Foundation, the Dell Foundation, USAID (a US government entity), the United Nations (UN’s) Social Impact Fund, and more. The entire list is here.

As far as other speakers who are HUGE in not only undermining education, but our nation? The Rockefeller Foundation, former Vice President Al Gore, Soros Economic Fund, The Brookings Institute, Harvard University, Merrill Lynch, MacArthur Foundation, and Prudential Finance. The complete list of speakers can be found here.
(*Note:My fellow Warrior, Alison Hawver McDowell has an archived article on one of the speakers, Sir Ronald Cohen. You’ll definitely want to read how his impact investing is sizing up America.)

If you missed my recent in-depth look at the American involvement is Middle Eastern testing, find that here.

Odds/Ends #5:

VIP Kid
Warriors
, this ‘too good to be true’ job is exactly that. Based in China, hiring Americans and based on the CCSS Machine education. If you look closely at the screen shot below, look at the perks: flexible hours/part-time and the big bucks you could make. According to the website, $14-22 per hour is possible. That’s tempting to many Americans. I’ve even had college students attempt to sign up, until they realized they’d be teaching CCSS English. No amount of money was worth that to them.

vipkidad

In this teacher video, listen to how much is revealed, as far as the ‘behind the scene’ items.

Warriors, teachers are called ‘affiliates’ and you can earn almost $200.00 per person the more affiliates you get to sign up.  (*Note: find that on the ‘affiliates’ page from the website embedded above the screen shot.)

Look below at this screen shot. See the CCSS Machine at work?

vipkidcurric

Warriors, did you know that the CCSS Machine member group Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) is the curriculum partner for VIPKids?

vipkidhmh

Odds/Ends #6:

Purdue University Global has recently begun advertising on the radio, on TV, and elsewhere. While I don’t have the script memorized it’s the standard ‘learn anywhere, anytime’ kind of hype. You’ll also hear something about faster degrees and lower costs.

Warriors, Purdue University is no stranger to the CCSS Machine. Back in May 2018, I showed you how the University was partnering with IN high schools to expressly pump up the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) portions of the UN’s global grasp on education.  In 2016, I showed you Purdue’s work in creating technology which has become our student’s nannies.

So, knowing all this, it’s no surprise that Purdue is offering ‘global university’. But, what IS a ‘global university’?  Well, first off, it’s accredited by the (HLC)  Higher Learning Commission. Second, all the courses are on-line and there are 180 to choose from.
(*Note: If you’ve been seeing or hearing a lot of Western Governor’s University ads, as I know in NC, they now have a ‘branch’, WGU is also tied to the HLC. The difference between Purdue and Western’s ads is Western only offers a few tracks for faster degrees. WGU was also featured in the embedded article above.)

globalpurdue

While Purdue University Global tells you there are corporate partners in education (website), they are not stating which corporations are involved. You have to request that information. However, I did find that back in 2014, Purdue was recognized for University Industry Partnerships. Purdue is also globally known for STEM. If you’d like to learn about the Purdue University’s Corporate and Global Office, visit here. (*Note: the Ford Motor Company is a corporate partner. Ford is HUGE in the CCSS Machine.)

 

ccappre
The companies here love CTE (Career Tech Education) and Career Pathways. They also are unabashedly supportive of CCSS and STEM.

Closing:

Well, Warriors, there you have it. The top Odds and Ends from my ‘closet’. I do have a few more items, but those will need to wait until I can dig a bit deeper. We’re finally in October 2018. May we stand firm and strong in our War Vs the Educratic Takeover.
****************************************

On a totally unrelated note, I hope you have heard by now that one of our fiercest Anti Common Core Warriors, Angela D. Weinzinger(California) has passed away. Her spirit and dedication to our children across the nation was always strong. Her fight against the CCSS Machine spurred many people on. Personally, Angela and I didn’t always agree, but I valued our differences. It made us better Warriors. If you would like to help contribute to the family Angela leaves behind, please visit the GoFundMe page set up for her.
