Hazardous Education

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article I left you with the fact we’d look at the UN -led ‘climate change’ in education. As you know, the hype around ‘going green’ has reached hazardous levels of distortion.
**This is my in-depth look/study guide on how America’s leaders have turned their patriotic duties into globalism gurus.**

Warriors, as you know, from my past research, and others, that STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, (the Arts), and, Math) are 100% United Nations’s created tools to distort our entire world. As was brought up during a recent interview about this, if humans mess around with nature too much, bad things ALWAYS happen.

Real science grounded in real truth has been thrown aside. It totally needs to be pointed out that REAL science knows much more than it being taught today.
The quasi-science replacing truth has many ‘chicken littles’ are running around screaming “The Earth is melting, the Earth is melting!”

The ruse has worked so well, especially in education,  that millions now believe the lies spun by ‘going green’. Why would so few devise a way to deceive so many about ‘climate change’? Money and power are 2 of the biggest reasons. I’m sure there are others, but like everything the CCSS Machine touches or is connected to, those are the top 2 reasons.

Within my last two articles, if you look closely enough, you saw the ‘climate change’ was included on purpose.

STEM/STEAM, climate change, going green all have 1 common denominator: SDGs, Sustainable Development Goals.

Does our current Administration support STEM/STEAM? Read for yourselves. If you want to see the UNESCO spin on ‘climate change’ in education, go here. Their statement on STEM can be read here.

***Adding insult to injury is our American government. It, too has sold our souls to the ‘climate change’ fallacy. ***

secstem
The politicians who believe they are scientists are just as bad as when they pretend to be educators.

D.C. has bent over backwards to use our taxpayer money to fund ‘climate change research’. Did you know that over the past 20 years, D.C. has spent $11.6 billion in 2014 (last available figure) on ‘climate change’?

Did you know that the American Re-investment funds (where Race to the Top also came from), spent $26.1 billion on ‘climate change’? (*Note: both figures are from the GAO (Government Accountability Office).

Warriors, below is a screen shot of the governmental chain for ‘climate control’ from the same page as the figures above.

gaoclimate

The GAO also reports that it’s believed that in 2017, $13.2 billion was spread between 19 federal agencies on ‘climate change’. Marketwatch (2016) reported that each year the U.S. government spends $35 billion in all on the ‘climate change’. By 2050, they estimated that figure would be $350 billion.

Warriors, with the increased push from the UN, on forcing ‘climate change’, that figure could quickly exceed $35 billion a year.

From a July 2015 “Climate Budget Tagging” Report, this excerpt, Climate Budget Tagging (CBT) is a budget tool for monitoring and tracking of climate-related expenditures in the national budget system.”

So, if you want to track the US budget for ‘climate change’ or any of the activities associated with it, you know what to look for. (*Note: this document will not feature the US, but it is an important tool to see what defines our budget on this topic.)

Much of the ‘tagging’ can be traced back to the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change).

Warriors, from this link, I was able to find US/UN ‘climate change’ information dating back to the late 1990s.
In this
link, as recent as late 2018. So, regardless of our exit from the Paris Agreement, the federal government is still actively participating with the UN on this topic.

Warriors, I encourage you to open the above visual in another window. “Going Green” or “Climate Change” is not upon us due to ONE political party, it’s BOTH.


Other Congressional “Climate Change” Legislation:

Warriors, in all I found a result of 44 ‘climate change’ bills and/or related.
Some had other issues attached to them, so we know, back doors are being used to set us up. Below are the ‘biggest’ ones we should be protesting:

Sister Bills, HR 1689/S 763 establish a “Climate Change Advisory Commission” for America. (Both versions would create federal obligations to fulfill for ‘climate change’.)
Sister Bills,
HR 1243/S 523 claim ‘climate change’ can protect our health care, as such it should be promoted. (Sen. Markey is the sponsor for the Senate version.)
HR 1201
, sets up a National ‘climate change’ security/strategy plan.

While those are bad enough, it’s S 477 I want to draw your attention to:

The Climate Change Education Act (S 477)

s477
What will S 477 do for education?

*Impact education at every age level in formal and non-formal educational settings, activities, and elsewhere.
*Authorizes NOAA to establish this educational programming at the cost of $20 million each year from FY 2020 to FY 2025.
This Bill is based off the “Congressional” researched findings, as follows:

a) overwhelming and undeniable evidence on human induced ‘climate change’.
b) atmospheric carbon can be significantly reduced by renewable energy
c) clear/concise ‘climate change’ information will help remove fear/encourage actions
d) implement measures to reduce human impact
e) create new technology and policies/programs to ensure maximum understanding of items a-d
f) will equip more than 3 million student graduates each year from high school and college armed with attitudes/skills/knowledge about ‘climate change’ which will guide their actions throughout the remainder of their lives
g) because of ‘f’, they can be prepared to make changes politely/support new technology/help create new technology and policy for the coming economic and social changes in America
h) overwhelming evidence exists that the US citizens support this type of teaching
i) a ‘green economy’ will improve social equity by reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities

Warriors, the main conduits for A-I are STEM/STEAM, CTE, Apprenticeships.
You’ll find these in ESSA, HEA, and WIOA (to name the top 3 laws where each are embedded)

If you wonder what the UN/UNICEF stance on‘climate change’ is for children, look here.
This might give us an idea of what NOAA may incorporate, should S 477 become law.

S 477 is currently in the Senate’s Committee for Commerce, Science, and, Transportation.

Smart Cities supposedly will answer ‘climate change’, yeah, right.
Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and, Transportation (majority party) views on the Trump Administration infrastructure plans. Minority views on 5G and digital economies (which ‘green deals’ will support).
Since ‘smart technology’ and 5G are somehow supposed to help us be ‘greener’, you’ll want to look into these Congressional caucuses:

Smart Cities Caucus (where 5G can be found). Currently IN, CA, OR, PA, MD, NY, MO, WY, TX, GA, IL, NM, FL, NJ, and NV are represented.

Within the U.S. Transportation, a new federal level government Council, NETT (Non-traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology Council)

A “Dear Colleague” Letter from the Smart Cities Caucus to draw in more Congress members.

Movers and Shakers for ‘green’ 5G/Smart Cities

Other Caucuses which are connected: Public Works and Infrastructure, Urban, Future Climate, Grid Innovation, Infrastructure, Smart Construction, Climate Solutions, IP (Intellectual property), Urban Regional Studies, Rural, Housing, Transportation, Public Transportation, Open Source, Co-operative business, Cybersecurity, Global investments, Digital trade, Technology accountability, and, AI (Artificial Intelligence). (*Note: Heartland Inst. featured a 2018 pdf on the Climate Solutions Caucus showing the conservatives union with the very liberal roots of ‘climate change’ traceable to Al Gore.)


Current 116th Bills which relate to 5G/Green/Climate:

HR 1453 (in Committee) co-ordinates a unity between the EU (European Union) and the US for global energy security.
HR 267 The Appropriations for U.S. Transportation, HUD, and others. Education is embedded 11 times, mainly using higher education as test facilities for new technology/green or climate efforts. Passed the House and is in the Senate.
HR 21 (Passed House, in Senate) A Consolidated Appropriations Bills, education is embedded 120 times and green infrastructure, 8 times.
HR 1039 (in Committee), streamlines currency and financial reporting information.
HR 1079/S 435 (HR version has passed House, in Senate; Senate Bill has the same name and is similar) This Bill streamlines all kinds of consent forms for Americans.
HR 292 Streamlines rural areas for broadband.
HR 1328 Expands federal government with new office for Internet Connectivity and related business.
HR 762 Streamlines US schools (all levels) for energy efficiency (passed House, in Senate)
S 253 Same name as HR 762, but retrofits schools.
HR 865/ S 266 (The Senate Bill is identical) Rebuilds US public schools, ‘greens’ them up, Section 303.
HR 989/ S 431 PARTNERS Act (very similar Bills; regional specific apprenticeships for industry-demanded trades)

What Does It All Mean?

Warriors, all this means is one thing: all of us are to be molded (or re-skilled) into how to be ‘green people’. If we look at this through education/economy and America, it’s more like “STEM” people, which is exactly what the plan has been since early 2009 or 2010.

Warriors, I know you love America, as do I. I don’t think the political America loves us back one bit. Not when it aligns us to global mumbo-jumbo like ‘climate change’ is our only hope for peace.

A Scientific Ploy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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


Meet The Representative Behind HR 627:

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


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


HR 627’s Language:

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

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

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

 


Closing:

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

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

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.

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
h) after-school STEM and summer STEM programs
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.)

workforcenochoice

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.

Human capital concept in tag cloud
How the Initiative behind all that Common Core encompasses SEES us.

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.)

Closing:

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
