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.

Lost Somewhere On The Road

To my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, do you know where we are? Do you know where we’re going? Before you think I’ve totally lost my mind, I do have a couple of reasons for asking these two questions.

A) We’ve just passed the 3rd anniversary of the signing of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) into law. Of course, this was after both chambers of Congress sold our students, teachers, schools, and, taxpayers down the river. Let me see if I can illustrate the importance of how ESSA has failed us, even before the ink was dry on the paper.

From a recent conversation with my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warrior, Betty:
“We’re not better off now than we were before ESSA.” When I asked her exactly what she meant, she told me it was much like attending a Tupperware party. You’re invited to someone’s home, you see the products demonstrated and well those tight fitting lids adhere to their containers.

You hear how great this is in protecting your food and you can save money. Then, you place an order. You take the product home, expressing to your family how great this will be in protecting food and saving money. When you take out your shiny new Tupperware container and lid, you can’t get the seal to adhere properly, no matter how much you try. You repeatedly try to get your Tupperware to perform exactly as the sales professional showed you. Nothing. Frustrated, you sit down in defeat and realize, you haven’t saved money. You haven’t been able to protect the food, so it spoils anyway.
Warriors, apply this concept to education in the ESSA Era.
***************************************************
B) We’re also about the see a new session of Congress take hold in America. Where will that lead us? If it’s anything like the outgoing session, it’s one step closer to more UN (United Nations) control, especially in education aligned to workforce.

To Congress, We the People are as lost as can be and can only be saved by their control. For We the People, we know where our nation is heading much better than we’re given credit for.

The U.N.’s Upset:

Warriors, did you know that in October of this year (2018) the U.N. was featured in an article where the organization was actually quite upset that their precious SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) 2030 target for complete control is ‘way off track’?!

upsetUN

The article also goes on to point out that there are a lot of pessimistic views that by 2030, the global alignment will be complete. The article also lays out how determined the U.N. is to force everyone into the SDGs.

Frankly, I could care less that the U.N.’s upset or that they are trying to pass off the SDGs as ‘aspirational’. If you’ve read the Goals, seen the massive amounts of federal and State level legislation implementing the SDGs, you know these Goals are directives and/or mandates.
**********************************************************

sdgboard
I know, Warriors, we hate those SDGs, especially after seeing how much damage they’ve done to education.
The SDGs have been woven into American education well before ESSA, but did you know some of the ESSA mandates echo the U.N.’s SDGs?
In some instances, almost word for word!

ESSA certainly upped the ante on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math).  To those of us fighting the CCSS Machine, we know STEM is 100% an educational tool being used against us. Not only in education, but in our communities. We anti Fed Ed Warriors know STEM is directly from the SDGs.

BUT, ESSA also upped the ante on workforce aligned education. That, too, my Warriors, is 100% U.N. directed. You can’t have a global unity without a unified workforce. You can’t have a ‘greater good’ if some of your workers are conformed.

This leads to WHY we shouldn’t disregard the U.N.’s disappointment…

I’m not suggesting we, as Warriors, be afraid of the U.N. I’m pointing out where we need to armed and ready for where the U.N. re-directs its efforts to align American education.

I’m showing you where to look to see HOW the U.N. attacks America, as a freedom-loving nation. As long as we are tied to the U.N. in ANY way, we are a member-state. As such, we must comply.

Also from the article (above) there’s one example for compliance. It’s  the fact that in Ghana, a national ID program has been rolled out to create better access to health care, education, etc. (Sound familiar?) However, with a national ID card, you’re also much easier to data track.

Which is why the other facts from the article are important. They show how hungry for personal private data the U.N. is; how big data is here to stay; how groups like the Gates Foundation Goalkeepers are helping the SDGs along. Warriors, we cannot assume that because the U. N. hasn’t gotten what it wants up until now, that we’ll be safe. Hardly. We must stay feisty. We must remain alert and pro-active.

stempbl1
Make NO mistake: it has been a calculated plan for STEM and Common Core to be directly related.

Where Else The Road Leads:

Recently, I was researching for an interview about the U.N.’s overreach into American Education. I found the trail leads to a couple of places you Warriors may know (or may not). The latest FAFSA information for those students wanting to go to college (or are being forced to fill the form out to graduate high school) contains all kinds of information which could be another article all by itself. However, as many times as the College Board is mentioned, I looked at bit closer. Buried in the College Board’s fine print for taking the SAT exams is this:

collegeboardunesco

(The College Board document can be found here. The added emphasis you see is from the UNESCO Archives as well as the U.S. State Dept. Archives.

If you wish to see where else UNESCO Coupons are issued or accepted, visit here.
To see the complete list of USA UNESCO Coupons suppliers and those groups accepting them, find that here. Warriors, you’ll be armed with the knowledge that some key CCSS Machine groups are in the UNESCO Coupon system.

Another road stop? The UNESCO ASPNet, spread across the globe. Here in the USA, 27 States and the District of Columbia are members of this network. What’s ASPNet?
The U.N.’s Associated School Project Network.

ASPNet was founded in 1953 to encourage world-wide peace and international understanding. Now, I couldn’t find out how many US schools have been in this program since its inception, but I can tell you that in 2018, there are 52 ASPNet Schools.
Eighteen States and D.C. are involved: FL, NY, WY, MD, PA, CT, WI, VA, CA, NJ, LA, MA, OH, MT, MN, GA, VT, HI, NH, and DC. These schools range from preK to college.

What’s ASPNet’s Goal? It’s nothing more than a front for global citizenship grooming:

aspbites

Warriors, if you’ve not seen the Global Citizen Pledge (which will replace the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance) here it is:

fbglobalpledge

************************************************************************
Closing:

For all it’s supposed unity, the U.N. is the WORST at keeping peace. They are ‘champions of coercion’ at creating a false sense of peace. Think of it as ‘my way or the highway’. Or, put another way, the big bully on campus.

Ironically, the U.N. is bending over backwards to rule out any and all bullies, except themselves.
For all the supposed freedom of ideals the U.N. claims the SDGs give us, there’s clearly only ONE road the U.N. really wants the rest of the world on: theirs.

By forcing the US into its SDGs mold, we’re seeing a fast lane on the U.N. road lead us to the  destruction of education, of our way of life, our beliefs, and our freedom.

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.

cowillusion

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!!

eggbasket

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.

Not-so-Funny Money

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, just a few days ago, I revealed to you how the World Bank is using Social Impact Bonds (SIBs), ‘sin’ taxes, along with other financial tools to help force America into the SDGS (Sustainable Development Goals) of the UN (United Nations).

One such financial tool is called ‘gender bonds (GBs)’. When I asked two of my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors who happen to be considered experts in both data mining and SIBs, neither had heard of the GBs

Knowing SIBs, BitCoin, and ‘sin’ taxes are connected to the demise in education, these GBs must be as well. So, let’s find out just what GBs will do in education. We’ll also learn if there are any NEW financial tools to be used against us.

clear-as-mud-1

SIBs and BitCoins:

SIBs, Social Impact Bonds, are a form of the ‘pay for success’ scheme used in business, but which as been applied to education via ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). How? Defined student outcomes. In other words the student HAS to be controlled and manipulated to fit a certain ‘outcome’. In ESSA’s case: ‘college and career ready’.
Warriors, did you know ‘outcome’ is a government controlled goal, NOT a personal free will choice?

As I’ve stated before, Alison McDowell’s Wrench in the Gears blog is an excellent resource to understand HOW SIBs are harming education. Alison also can explain the Bitcoin connections to education. (*Note: it has to do with the trail created by data mining (aka ‘student data rape’). 

As Alison points out, the Bitcoins and SIBs, will be used against every American. We’re seeing this type of control used in China. Knowing the UN’s SDGs are involved, we know more than education will be BitCoins and SIBs’s conduit for HOW control is set up. 

I’ve also shared before that the Missouri Education Watchdog’s blog has some excellent information on data mining. This September 2018 article explains the global lust for our student’s personal information. Since Google and global data rapers are at the helm, we know this will meet up with the World Bank and the United Nations, somehow!

(*Note: See page 40 of the World Bank’s “Moving the Needle”. You’ll also see how much American money has already been invested into SIBs.)

UNdatatrack

Paying For Our ‘Sins’?

As far as ‘sin taxes’ go, the UN’s SDGs want to see excessive use of alcohol and other substances curtailed as much as possible. (Don’t forget the WHO, World Health Organization here!)

So, the World Bank’s plan is to tax the people for using them. What’s more is the ‘sin taxes’ will help fund universal health care and mental health ‘scale-up’ programs. (‘scale up’ is fancy for expansion of government in mental health.)

Now, it is important to note that excessive use of ANY substance should be addressed, but an overall tax across the board isn’t so much about helping fight substance abuse as it is about controlling your free will. Much like the mental health grab by the UN is a back door to taking Second Amendment rights away, this type of taxation will infringe heavily on your Constitutionally and civil rights protected freedoms.
(*Note: Page 40 of the World Bank’s “Needle” shows a sin tax on beverages made with sugar (but not for high fructose corn syrup or other modified sweeteners)!

Questions:
What will this type of heavy handedness do for those who are not excessive or abusive?  What happens when this type of tax is attached to sodas and juices?
Why is it ‘universal health care’? Is this a sign that America will have this socialist system?

cowillusion

Using Gender For Their Agenda:

Warriors, it isn’t new news that the UN’s SDGs use gender against us. In the SDG Toolkit (created in the US back in the early 2000s), you’ll find page after page of how women and the poor are targeted.

While the BS tries to make the reasons WHY these people are targeted sound noble, the real agenda is caddish. The first reason is that the more women or poor people who work, the fewer there will be to raise children. The second reason is that all citizens must work to feed the global economy.

STEMlie
Warriors, spot the irony? American made goods shouldn’t be based on a UN global indoctrination.


What is the main educational tool being used to target women and the poor? STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) and STEAM (all of STEM, plus the Arts).
(*Note: this one article will give you the SDG Tool Kit link, as well as show you the Americans pushing the global STEM moreso than most other citizens.)

So, knowing all this, let’s find out what a GB (Gender Bond) is and how it will impact education.

Warriors, according to the World Bank’s Needle document, Gender Bonds are a type of private sector finance tool, like the SIBs and others above. These type of tools, as we are seeing are being used to drive (or force) social change. Look below:

genderbond.jpg
(You can find the Gender Bond definition and related investment information on Page 35 of the World Bank’s Needle document.) What follows is a timeline of GBs:

NAB, National Australian Bank; March 2017, becomes the first to issue gender bonds. The reason? Workforce equality. NAB also has a “Male Champion of Change” program. According to NAB’s 2017 “Towards 2020” document, education and P3s (public private partnerships) will help genders get ahead. NAB is also a UN Global Compact member, since 2010.

Asian Development Bank (ADB), in November 2017(to support their 1990s Policy on Gender), invested mega bucks into gender bonds for Asian and Pacific countries. ADB is tied to UNESCO. Women’s and girls education is mentioned 43 times in the ADB’s 2013 Gender Policy document.

December 2017, the Wall Street Journal wrote about the Gender Bonds as a way to be ‘socially responsible’ (as well as a way to help end sexual harassment). Back in 2014, the Journal partnered with MSN (Microsoft) News to poll America on Common Core. (*Note: as we know, Microsoft is a huge UN member/supporter. What you may not know is that the Wall Street Journal is owned by the Dow Jones and Company. Dow Jones is a partner of the World Bank. Especially in the SDGs.)

June 2018, Turkey’s Gender Bonds with the help of Goldman Sachs 10K Women program. (The education tie comes through global business courses at partnering institutions.) Warriors, I have at least 4 articles on how Goldman Sachs is part of the CCSS Machine (Common Core State Standards Machine).

Doing The DIB:

DIBs (Development Impact Bonds) are a new type of World Bank financial tool. These bonds will be much like the SIBs, but will mature between 3-10 years. DIBs also center around ‘result driven approaches’ when it comes to social issues. In educratic speak it’s known as ‘best evidenced practice’; aka: subjective research and methods). You’ll find almost no information on DIBs in the World Bank’s document because these bonds are still undergoing changes before being unleashed. Do watch for these, though. Education will certainly be in the mix.

The UN’s Women’s Movement:

First, off, before we get to WHAT the UN’s got in mind, I’m sure you’ve had a burning question or two about gender bonds.

As of this article, the only real focus by the UN has been for women and/or the poor. How ‘poor’ is a gender, I do not know.

However, you’ve seen and read the evidence.

Are there any gender bonds for men? What about those who aren’t sure of their gender or have decided to NOT have a gender? Where will these people be placed by the UN?
No matter if you agree with the ‘gender bending’ going on or not, people are people and we all need protecting from the UN’s control freakish system. The UN screams ‘tolerance’ but is breeding massive amounts of discrimination!

Warriors, SDG #5 is Gender Equality. It’s where the GBs fit in. If you’ve not seen the SDG #5 targets, read here.

If you missed the new 2018 Gender Guidelines, you’ll ‘love’ learning about them. The Guidelines will use gender to tie to climate change. The World Bank’s “Needle” document will feature a little on Green Bonds. Near Page 40. Green bonds are geared for sustainable ‘green’ energy and climates.)

If you missed the 2015 World Economic Forum piece on why gender is so vital to the SDGs, read it.

Lastly, from 2002, the World Bank tackled the question about gender and the SDGs (although back then the SDGs had another name).

To cut through the global doublespeak, the reason why gender is so key to the success of the SDGs is IF we can stop the unfairness between men and women, we’ll treat our environment better. IF we treat the environment better, we’re well on our way to a peaceful world.

It’s as if the UN is telling us, if you and your spouse can stop fighting, then your grass will grow better. If the grass is greener, then your peace will be at hand. Yeah, right..Sounds like the UN believes everyone just fell off the turnip truck. (That’s Southern for not very smart.)

BS-Meter

Closing:

Warriors, as I shared with you in the “Wicked Web”, the very leaders who have pledged to END America’s union with the UN are NOT living up to that pledge. In fact, the Administration has strengthened the UN/US union.

We MUST, I repeat, MUST enforce the free will of the people. That will? To remain Americans, to rid education of government, and to STOP seeing mountains made out of molehills as the UN has done to us for years.

Wicked Web

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I’m so glad we are able to help each other find facts and truth main stream media leaves out. 

Recently, I shared an article with you about the new UNICEF initiative called “Generation Unlimited”. Not only were you able to see how it aligns with the G20 Education Declaration, but other global overreaches.

In response, I’ve had quite a few of you reach out with more connecting dots I hadn’t even heard of. Thank you!!

 

double_tro_m2173526

 

Warriors, we know the global overreaches impact the federally led overreaches we’ve seen in education. Like the intersections of a spider web, these catch the States and local education in a trap.

Through my research, as well as others like me, we’ve been able to see the federal legislation become endorsed and embraced by several Presidents, the current one included.

We’ve also seen mountains of evidence which show the support for the CCSS Machine led take over is from BOTH major political parties (even at the State levels of government).

Again, think of the spider-web like deceptions we’ve been handed as ‘truth’.

 

puppetpeople

 

Many of us have wondered just HOW embracing  the Trump Administration in all this educratic BS. After all, weren’t we promised by him that an end to globally (United Nations) led influence and programming was going to happen? Weren’t we told that data mining would end and that Common Core had to go?

In the remainder of this article, you’ll see what I hope to be new and important information in our War Vs the Global Core.

globeed

 Warrior Carol R has graciously agreed for me to share what she’s discovered about the overreaches by both (Republicans) Rs and  (Democrats) Ds:

 

christalk1To learn about the FCC’s mandates for children’s tv based education, go here.
To see how I tied not only to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), but also to the United Nations and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), which is the UN’s biggest trap for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), go here. 


To learn about Ajit Pai, visit here. (*Note: as we know Pai’s stance on net neutrality has proven great for the CCSS Machine member groups like Verizon.) Then consider the digital economy tied to 5G (Fifth Generation cell phone communications). That digital economy depends on STEM heavily.

Of course, the UN fully embraces all of this.

(source for Stalin’s quote)

To see the regionalism in ESSA, go here. (*Note: look for Item #8.)
Example of US government led regionalism: NASA is helping create SDG aligned via science. Read this.

5g2030
(Source)

Carol also shared that the U.S. has a lot of ties to the United Nations which come through some back doors into education. Maybe you knew about these, maybe not. However, to arm you with as much information, as always, here you go:

1) U.S Congressional “Smart Cities Caucus” was ‘kicked off’ in March 2018. The ties to education? Internet activity and workforce. (Remember, ESSA embedded workforce readiness as part of the birth to death alignment in education.) More on Smart Cities from the UN’s SDG Zone can be found here.

2) Venture Smarter, a P3 (Public Private Partnership) devoted to supporting the UN’s SDGs, especially in regionalism.

venturesmart
To learn more about leadership of Venture Smarter, visit here. To learn about their upcoming Ohio Conference (where you’ll see the city of Cincinnati is in a 2030 District) and the sponsors (includes the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security), go here.
To learn more about the IEEE 2017 Conference on Data Mining, my previous article will give you lots of information.

3) American Cities as UN Creative Culture hubs. That’s right, Warriors, since 2008 (Santa Fe, NM) and other cities (more recently, Paducah, KY) are tagged as collective centers for the arts. Funneled through the Visitors and tourism agencies in your town, you may find your residence in a UN designated hub.

The Arts are very much a part of the educratic shift. Especially under the UN’s SDGs. How? STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math). The Arts are just as controlled as the workforce based education. The National Endowments for Arts and Humanities, as well the National Assoc. for Music Education (NAME) sold out years ago to the CCSS Machine.
**************************************
Think about this, Warriors: so much about the shift in education to workforce means control. Then consider that much of the shift via the CCSS Machine points to socialism, as does the UN. Being an artist should mean creativity at YOUR discretion, not the State’s. Much like living under Stalin’s rule, artists HAD to subscribe to the beliefs of the government in order to paint or dance.

********************************************

4) U. S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation
This particular part  of the U. S. State Department (housed in the U.S. Bureau of Education and Culture) not only ties to the UNESCO via the World Heritage sites, but relies heavily on P3s. You may not recognize this Bureau, but if you’ve heard of Fulbright Scholars/Teachers, then you know part of the Bureau.

Also connected to the U.S. State Dept. is USAID. I’ve covered their ties to the CCSS Machine before. You may be interested to know that the USAID also has an Ambassador Program. It’s tied to a 5 year contract with an education NGO (non governmental organization) based out of Pakistan.

From Chris, another dedicated activist, shared this. President Trump’s national security plan embeds the SDGs from the United Nations. See the screen shots below. 

usun18
Warriors, then look at this one:

damningSDG
(Source for both screen shots. Emphasis is mine.)

Warriors, let this sink in, the very President who is saying the U.S. will leave UNESCO, has woven the UN’s SDGs throughout his Security plans. As one of my dear Warrior friends compared this to : “withdrawing from UN councils while allowing UNESCO to control America’s K-12 standards, assessment and accountability policies is like allowing the pedophile down the street to watch your kids while you go to the capitol to fight porn.”

 

 

**Warriors, we must realize that several of our Presidents have aligned us to the globalization of America, not just one former one OR the current one! As I’ve urged you before, LOOK at the evidence, NOT the political party!**

usnow

President Trump’s National Security Plan:

Warriors, here’s the link to the 68 page National Security Strategy as laid out by President Trump.

Below, are the key word searches I did throughout the document. The key words were ones that show ties to the UN’s SDGs. To give you an idea of how these are woven in, use the ‘sustainability’ as an example. Like always, look for yourselves!
Sustainability is woven in 4 times. Under modernizing our military (p. 29), economics, growth and security (p. 38), business and trade; diplomacy and legislation (p. 39).
Key to all this is the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

Peace, 42 times; Poverty, twice; Education, 3 times {P. 18 ties to economy; P. 20 direct mention of STEM; and, P. 33 culture, commerce, and co-operation among nations}; Partnerships, 10 times; Water, twice; Land, 41 times; Equality, once; Food, once; Energy, 51 times; Innovation, 20 times; Technology, 20 times; Infrastructure, 32 times; Production, once; and, Communities, 12 times.


Closing:

Warriors, it’s tempting, to want to cast the evidence aside, especially when it comes to a political person we supported (or still support). We CANNOT afford to do this! As Warriors, we MUST face the fact that our leaders are NOT putting America first, therefore, they are not protecting us.

If we assume by voting by party things will improve, then we’ve become like the silk encased victims found in spider webs.

It’s also tempting to want to marginalize each other when truth like this comes out. I urge you to NOT do this!

We need each other to continue to stand up against tyranny! You love America, so do I. That is WHY we have been fighting for so long to expose and STOP this type of indoctrination via education.

The globalization of America is well under way, Warriors. Be the spider’s predator, not its prey.

Warriors, you’re looking at a brand new initiative by UNICEF for students ages 10 years to 24 years old. I urge you to look at the blue box. Then, contrast with the words in red from NC’s vision for education. See the likenesses?
(*Note: to access the full GU website, go here.)

Then consider the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) language that ALL education must be aligned to post-secondary readiness standards as laid out by WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). 

Below, is a comparison chart for the UN’s vision for education vs the vision for education in America.
While these visions are old, they mesh very well with the GU’s current vision.

sdscans

********************************

Meet Generation Unlimited:

World leaders gathered in New York City in late September 2018 to launch this initiative which fits the Youth 2030 Strategy. If you listen to the wording for the initiative (embedded above) you’ll hear how all this change is meant to be risky and disruptive. GU (Generation Unlimited) will have lots of  STEM and include rural schools, mental health, P3s (public private partnerships), data mining, and more. SEE it here.

Look below at one partner, Unilever, and how the GU was announced in the business world:

unilevergu

Warriors, did you notice the age range for the GU (Generation Unlimited)? Ten years old and up to 24 years of age.  Why this age group? See the excerpt below,

“Without urgent investment in education and skills training, the rapidly growing global population of adolescents and young people – which will reach 2 billion by 2030 – will continue to be unprepared and unskilled for the future workforce. And with more than 200 million young people of lower- and upper-secondary school age currently missing out on school, instead of contributing to equitable progress, young people – especially the most disadvantaged – could face futures of compounding deprivation and discrimination.”
(*Note: full press release)

In other words, barely educate them for academics, train them to work to contribute to the economy and be their savior.

modern-education_o_1290213
GU leaders include Unilever, the Global Partnership for Education*, the World Bank, the Global Business Coalition for Education, MasterCard, IKEA Foundation, the Education Commission, OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), and a host of UN entities.
(*Note: The GEP, Global Partnership for Education, is supported by the U.S. Congress via H Res. 466 and S Res. 286.)

 

So, What’s the 2030 Youth Strategy? Look below:

unyouthstrat
To access the entire Strategy document, visit here.

What are some for ‘real time’ plans for the Strategy? Cross cutting, system wide actions and interventions which support the United Nations. According to the document, these plans will hit 5 target areas with 5 effective tools.

1) Engagement, Participation and Advocacy (so we can all live in a peacefully sustainable and just world)
Watch for total UN leadership in all member states (US is still one of these).

2) Informed and Healthy Foundations (quality education and healthcare for all)
Watch for CBE (Competency Based Education) for life, mental health and sexual diversity.

3) Economic Empowerment through Decent Work (everyone has a good productive job)
Watch for member states shifting to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) aka ‘Green’ jobs. 

4) Youth and Human Rights (supports their civic and political interactions)
Watch for UN enforced youth participation in voting, global citizenship, and, human rights education/activism.

5) Peace and Resilience Building (train for humanitarianism and inter-religious participation)
Watch for safe spaces, and increased global, national, state, local partnerships to boost non violence.

The five tools: UN leadership; innovation (supposedly with knowledge); investments via partnerships; accountability (means data tracking); and, common resources.

As a member state of the United Nations, America must ‘own’ their portion of carrying out the Strategy via governance (legislation) and coordination (policy).

“The ownership of the UN Youth Strategy is equally shared by all members of the UN system at the global, regional and national levels. The Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth will be the public face of the UN Youth Strategy and will lead global advocacy efforts and its High-Level Steering Committee in support of its successful implementation. 
COORDINATION AND GOVERNANCE:
The governance of the UN Youth Strategy will be rooted in existing global, regional and national mechanisms and reinforced by a High-Level Steering Committee.”

The High-Level Steering Committee will work with the UN’s SDG Group (Sustainable Development Goals) as well as Interagency Network on Youth Development (IANYD)  members. IANYDs are at a global level, and a regional level. From there member states are broken up in Country Teams.

These Country Teams have 165 UN program participating countries, from around the world, grouped into 131 teams. These teams are to make sure all countries comply with the UN’s programs and initiatives.

In all there are 193 member states in the UN. Not all member states are Country Teams, at least not now.

From what I’ve been able to glean about the UN, any time a ‘high-level’ status is attached, it’s a big deal which will get lots of attention. For example, there’s a High-level Digital  Committee (which will no doubt be working with the ‘innovation’ portion of the Youth Initiative. Melinda Gates (Gates Foundation) is the co-chair for the Digital Committee.

Why would we, as Americans need to know some of this? Look at the image below:

4kusa

Any of the United Nations suggestions (recommendations) is decided upon by the Security Council. As you can see the United States is a member. Then, decisions are implemented via the specialized groups and ‘organs’.

So, the Generation Unlimited, is part of this system. In July 2018, in New York, the first news about GU was announced. Watch a clip here. The entire 2 hour kick-off can be seen here. This will include the youth speaking out in favor of this. Be sure to note the cheering they are trying to pump up with “2030”.

Closing:

Warriors, let’s go back to the NC vision statement for education. As I pointed out before, it’s very similar to that of the UNICEF’s new program.

While I could not find any specific USA Generation Unlimited (GU) activity in the planning stages, this is something we need to look out for. It’s coming.

Look at your State’s education vision, especially since ESSA been made law. “Global” will be inserted in some way, maybe not by the exact word, but the idea of globalization.

The UN’s goal is not for Americans to be America-minded.

ccdivafb


Warriors, one last observation. Did you notice how  Generation Unlimited allows for global programs from groups associated with UNICEF?

Consider then, the U.S. Secretary of Education’s signature on the G20 Education Declaration for global education. While the Declaration IS the G20’s, the agenda is backed by the UN. As such, UNICEF is factored in.

.
Question, petition, protest. Our leaders are NOT leading us out of the UN, but straight into it!

So, our choice is, do we let them lead us OR do we take our country back? These 10-24 year olds will be lost to us as true Americans if we do not act quickly.

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.)

gsged

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

To learn more about the proficiency based English which prepares students for ‘lifelong learning’, visit their page.

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.

Under Our Noses

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it hundreds of times that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) is a coined acronym in use to deceive us all.
Yes, I know, I’ve heard it before, “But, Lynne we’ve always had science and math. We’ve had engineering in the past and technology, too.”
HOWEVER, Warriors, the deception is that by creating an acronym with things we are familiar with, the agenda is easier to be implemented.

What do I mean? A few years ago, I wrote an article showing you how the NSF, National Science Foundation (a government funded agency of the USA), was tasked to come up with a marketing tool to ‘win’ the nation over with.

WHY? Evidence suggests their ties with the UN (United Nations). More to the point the UN’s damnable SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). STEM was (and is) the vehicle to change the course of education. At least according to the UN SDG Toolkit (created here in America). (*Note: you can access and read the Toolkit for yourselves. Look for the link under the Paragraph “From 2002”. The sentence beginning with “Tool Kit” is where you’ll find the document.)

THEN, once the acronym was selected, the President (Obama) had to be influenced. I also revealed HOW he was influenced (a PCAST Report).  (*Note: when you go back and read the embedded links, you’ll notice that the Presidential influence began well before President Obama, especially in regards to the NSF.)

pressurecooker

So, what WAS the agenda and does it still survive under our current President?

Agenda: STEM ushered in about the same time as Common Core, so no one would notice. Use STEM to create a STEM people with a STEM education for STEM jobs and a STEM economy. In other words more mastery based education, or as it’s been sold to us, competency based education (CBE). Why CBE? Skilled workers. Skilled in STEM, that is.

Is the Agenda surviving? Absolutely! In fact, President Trump is a huge supporter of STEM because it means jobs. As we know, jobs means economy.

However, Warriors, the STEM economy is NOT for America, it’s for the global good and their economy.

U.S. Sec. DeVos has done an outstanding’ job of promoting STEM, too. Since STEM is global and she has seen it as her duty to sell our nation out to global mastery based education, you can be assured STEM will be popping up in current proposed DC legislation.

sdgstem

STEM In Legislation for 2018 And Beyond:

Warriors, right now, we are nearing the end of Fiscal 2018. On October 1, 2018, our government begins FY 2019.Currently,  STEM is woven into several of the FY 2019 Budget Bills. I shared with you, back in August, several of the ways in which, not only STEM would live on, but the top-down educratic control.

The biggest ways STEM will survive, as well as the educratic control are apprenticeships, CTE (Career Tech Education), College/Career Readiness, and P3s (public private partnerships).

partnership

STEM’s P3 Legislation:

Warriors, if you’ve not seen what a STEM P3 would look like, consider NASA.

More recently, there’s been concocted a lesser known legislative bill.
It’s HR 5119, simply titled The P3 Act. This Act was introduced back in February 2018 and hasn’t seen much action (if any) since then. However, what the Bill contains cannot be acted upon until there’s the money to bring its agenda to fruition!

hr5119

ICYMI: The researched evidence behind the Harvard/Pearson project turned educratic overreach. You can also learn more from this archived article.

So what does the P3 Act stand for, Warriors? After all, every DC Bill has some sort of acronym to it. “P3” in this instance stands for  ‘‘Partnerships for Progress and Prosperity Act’’. It’s a fancy way to ‘dress up’ the regular P3 meaning (public private partnership). The Bill has one sponsor and 5 co-sponsors and is currently in the U.S. House of Representative’s Education and Workforce Committee. Rep. Bill Foster from IL is the sponsor. If you look at Foster’s campaign donations the U.S. Dept. of Energy contributed the most money. If you look at the committees Foster serves the nation in, Energy in among them.
(*Note: in 2017, in Foster’s district, Joliet Junior College received a NSF Grant for STEM.)

Here’s how the P3s will play into STEM and ‘education’:
1) Requires the U.S. Dept. of Ed to award grants to LEAs (Local Education Agencies) for STEM, exclusively.
2) The grants MUST be used in the following ways:
a) to improve education in K-12 and higher education institutions
b) every awardee is required to  partner with a STEM business or employer
c) internships and apprenticeships are mandated to be included
d) development of STEM curricula and metrics
e) dual credit courses are mandated
f) tutoring/mentoring in STEM, especially for underrepresented student groups
g) STEM activities and events outside the schools and in the communities are mandated for teachers and students

i) purchase of STEM resources for STEM instruction

The U.S. Dept of Education (in these STEM grants) will pay special attention to any LEA who promotes STEM for students/teachers; uses tech based content; pairs mentors/tutors with students struggling to meet STEM benchmarks; and/or targets low-cost or free lunch eligible students.

One last mandate from the P3 Act for STEM: all grant award ‘winners’ MUST match 50 % of their award. The fifty percent must be non-federal funds and can be in cash or ‘in kind’ (which means any type of support in exchange for work or other services like free food or free housing.
(*Note: cash received in this manner is non-taxable. In kind can be claimed as a tax write off by the giver, but not the receiver unless otherwise advised.)

Warriors, when you read this 8 page Bill (HR 5119), you’ll see the familiar educratic buzzwords/phrases like ‘rigorous’, ‘evidence based’, ‘engagement’ (especially in the classroom), and my personal ‘favorite’: “high quality research”. Now the irony of this entire Bill is that is based of RECOMMENDATIONS, not objective facts.

The Bill also cites the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), which is geared for not only CCR (College/Career Readiness) aka: Common Core, but the OECD’s (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) workforce based global system of CBE (Competency Based Education).

OECD is where the horrible label of ‘human capital’ comes from.

How the Initiative behind all that Common Core encompasses SEES us.

ICYMI: How the State Dept. has become a STEM disciple for targeting women. You’ll see UNESCO involved as well.  Included will be both NASA and NSF, too.

STEM In Other U.S. Agencies/Departments:
ICYMI: NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and others are STEM disciples, too. (*Note: The State Dept. and all the agencies mentioned were/are CCSS Machine member groups, too.)

Warriors, if ever there’s a time to be bucking the system it’s now. Those chilling words (at least to me) about the STEM people for a STEM nation are playing out right under our noses. Are we so stuffed with compliance and apathy, we don’t smell the stench of agenda? The agenda TAKES our freedom! The agenda erodes our education! formerusa
