Oh, Say Can You Say?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as the 2020 election season is gearing up in hype, know that one of the main issues will NOT be education. What’s grabbing the attention of most Americans? Data. However, data comes in several forms and most definitely shows up in education!

If you missed my 5 part series on the stances of all the Presidential candidates (Rs and Ds), I urge you to take the time to read through the articles. You’ll see the technology and innovation platforms (all are ‘code’ for data mining).

currentfeds
(That’s the current federal level candidates, excluding the President. His stances are in Part 3’s article.)

statelocal
(That’s the State and Local level candidates)

Not ONE candidate, even the current President, is backing off data collection (aka: student data rape).
physicalvsdata

What’s noteworthy is the data rape doesn’t stop at the school, it is meant for EVERY American! That’s why the passage of FEPA was so vital. (FEPA is short for “Foundations of Evidence-based Policy-making Act”). I’ve written on FEPA several times, as have other Anti CCSS Warriors. There are other activists from the genres of American liberties, American finance, etc. who have also written about the connections FEPA has to our economy.

Many other Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have focused on the trails between money all everything we do on-line to create social credit. The social data mining helps speed this type of profiling right along.

What’s worse, is the 2020 candidates are riding the coattails of the global data marketing system. After all, that exactly where all this data is ending up.

But WHERE, Warriors, does the social data mining/data rape begin? How about our own back yards.

As, I often do, I’ll be showing you what I have found near me, in NC (where I live). I hope it spurs you to action to looking in your State for where the social data tracking trail is being inserted.

Big Data Just Down The Road:

Warriors, if you didn’t know it, I live in an area of NC where NASCAR racing is ‘king’. So much so, that Mooresville (where I live) is also known as “Race City USA”.  Mooresville is just north of Charlotte. One of the biggest data and banking hubs in the nation.

Those of us who live here know that several large buildings sit empty as former headquarters of this team or owner, or another one. We’ve used to seeing new logos go up as old ones come down.

timbergig

However, when a former racing car facility is re-invented as a mega data center, that’s a whole other issue. I can tell you that I’ve driven by the ‘new’ facility. The entire building and land is surrounded by a tall fence with razor wire in curled ribbons on the top. It’s a bit ironic, Warriors. Howso? When you consider the massive amounts of personal and private data being harvested (unconstitutionally), they have complete access to you, but you are to be kept out by all means.

Here’s the link to the local ‘breaking’ news from late June. 

gigam

A few years ago, President Obama made local and national headlines by coming to Mooresville to trot out the (then) latest and greatest student data mining system. (Project RED) was the name. Supposedly streamlined data collection to help students become more accomplished was the hype. (*Note: the article I embedded is from 2016 and will tie ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act to the increases in data collection.)

As Warriors, we know now that the data mining is so NOT about accomplishments, but cradle to grave tracking for workforce aligned education. While it’s true NC has done everything in its power to beef up technology in the classrooms, NC is hardly the sole State where this is happening. We’ll see the efforts grow, Warriors.

GIGA and Lenovo; Education Related?

Warriors, I can tell you that Levono is a Hong Kong global corporation with a US based headquarters in Raleigh, NC (About 3 hours east of Mooresville). IBM has a ‘historic alliance’ with Lenovo. But, can we tie GIGA and Lenovo together?

levonogiga

Yes, Warriors, we can! (Source)
IBM is also a UN (United Nations) Partner for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG #4 is Quality education for all).

Related Resources:

1) Project RED is alive and is in continual data raping increase. If you want to see the latest, go here. (*Note: you’ll see the website isOne-to-One Institute. Be sure to look at the 21st Century ‘learning’, the tools for States to implement data at every turn and more. One-to-One is a international non-profit group. One of the Board members is from KnowledgeWorks, KW. KW is a known ‘cradle to grave’ digital community aligning group very much in the belly of the CCSS Machine. Their ‘cradle to career’ cities are spread all across the US. In NC, you can find one KW community in Winston-Salem. Also considered a big hub in NC. You can also see Winston-Salem in connection to the current NC Superintendent and his CCSS Machine tieshere. )

2) To see the Project RED ‘global toolkit’ Chapter 2, go here. For Chapter 5, go here.

3) The Leadership Team of GIGA is full of CCSS Machine group members (and their ties to Big Data). For example the President and CEO of GIGA also founded DCBlox (cloud based data storage is among their claims to fame).

dcblox

4) From HPC Newswire, the GIGA/Mooresville News revealed a Cloud based ‘Event’ held earlier this year. (*Note: use the ‘event’ link and look at the right hand side to see the upcoming Cloud based Events to be held. Of special interest is the DC based one on infrastructure changes. Changing data mining infrastructure plays right into the ESSA , Every Student Succeeds Act data mining mandates, as well as HIPAA’s, FERPA’s, and FEPA’s.)

5) From what I could find, on-line, GIGA has been around since the 1990s and was founded by a man named Gartner. He then sold GIGA to Forrest Research (2003). I also found a GIGA pdf document from 2018, where Gartner is still active in Big Data. (*Note: when you access the Forrest website, you will not see ‘education’ as one of the sectors served, but you will see government and health insurance. Both are tied to education, as we know.)

6) Also in the Charlotte area, is the Charlotte Urban Institute. CUI is partnering with Big Government and Big Data to manipulate education via community services. You can find the CUI among the partners of the ISC, Institute for Social Capital.
(*Note: manipulation of entire communities in the name of education is spread throughout ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act. Mostly, through data tracking.) UNC-Charlotte also has a Model UN Club. (*Note: Model UN Clubs are in all educational choices and age levels.)

Closing:

Warriors, I’ll ask again, do you know what’s in your backyard about Big Data? As you can see, it isn’t hiding. It IS being used to control so much of our lives. Will we wait until in controls US 24/7 before we stop it?!

Is “Self-Direction” Innovation?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’re closing out May 2019 with some updates on the SOSO (‘same ole same old’) educratic BS from the CCSS Machine

In my last article, it was educratic BS in DC to ‘shut down’ the U.S. Dept. of Education by not really closing it, but scattering it like dust to the wind.

How so? Remember, that about the time DeVos was in Argentina with the G20 Education Summit, I showed you how the Y20 and L20 (Youth 20 and Labor 20) arms of the G20 (Group of 20 nations) had embedded the merging of education AND labor into one giant department? By ‘shutting’ U.S. Ed down, the merger would be one step closer to completion here in the U.S.
(*Note: the Y20 called the shift ‘innovation’. The GU (Generation Unlimited) calls the shift ‘quality education and training.)

Warrior Observation:
How anyone in Congress thinks this type of innovation is getting rid of federal control of our education system is beyond me. How any citizen would choose to believe the SOSO, is also, beyond comprehension.

follyfool

Self-Direction (AKA: Personalized Learning) is “Innovation”:

Warriors, we KNOW PL (Personalized Learning) is also a CCSS Machine farce. However, many parents are being deceived by State level leaders that self-directed learning is not only the best wave of innovation, it’s the best tool to guide their future.

thinknot

The reality? Self-direction and personalized learning guide students (via massive data mining and algorithms) to a predestined track that a test/assessment lays out. NOT the personal choice of Johnny and/or Suzy.

deludeded

So, if we KNOW this, how is the deception still being carried out?

The short answer: Global agenda in US legislation.
The longer answer: American parents and taxpayers are ignored and our freedoms muted.

Where will we find this deceptive agenda?

The short answer: All around us, especially in learning.
The longer answer: Hidden in our State’s plans at the federal government’s direction.

decright


Warriors
, let’s remember one key item about ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act): “Innovation” in learning, teaching, measuring (testing), was part of the entire goal in having the law passed.

Basically, our Congress ‘bet the farm’ against our kids by passing this. They also betrayed us, as parents and taxpayers.

What’s Your State “Innovating”:

Chillingly, our States are taking the federal Congressional cue to use innovation to usurp a student’s entire life. No longer is the concern academics, but now, using innovation to micromanage mental health. So much so, you have States begging leaders within their borders to misuse Medicaid funds.*
(* More about that in a moment.)

Why would your State ‘play such a harlot’?  Well, several reasons.
A) Because the States have to answer to their master, the federal government and the global agenda. (We must be ’21st Century Ready for the global community/economy, after all.)
B) Because the States have become addicted to so much funding, the sheer amounts have blurred the vision of those in charge. (If your State is like mine, simple improved management of funds would prove federal funds are not needed, as well as adhere our actions to the legality of the U.S. Constitution and federal laws prohibiting ANY form of federal overreach.)
C) Because the leaders are either fully aware of their deceptions or have become so jaded, they no longer care for WE the People. (Can’t line your pockets with good intentions and get re-elected, nope, got to succumb to the campaign corporate donors.)
D) Because your student/child is no longer respected as a human, but rather, a return on investment. (Can anyone say ‘indentured servitude’?)

Misused Medicaid:

Warriors, from ND, this screen shot of a 32 page Final Report (Dec. 2018) on Innovation for education.

NDinnovate

From PA, long time Anti Fed Ed Warrior, Anita Hoge’s latest article lays out the cold hearted moves this type of Medicaid misuse looks like in the classroom. Anita ties the federal overreaches right back into the global agenda found in the UN (United Nations) and groups like the G20.

tamaranita
(Interview link)

From NC, where I live, the Innovation Project (TIP) encompasses virtual education as well as homeschooling families. Words fail to express the disgust I feel for this blatant overreach into our families.

Now, my dear followers and Warriors, think about how all this misuse geared toward our student’s thinking and behavior will make them much more pliable. The more conforming they are, the easier it is to pigeonhole (more tests determine this) them into what the government thinks education is, not what you, the parent or taxpayer needs education to be.

All Education IS…

Warriors, as if what’s above isn’t terrible enough, my fellow Warrior, Alex Newman,just published an article where none other than Betsy DeVos has declared that “all education is public education”.  In his article, he ties this back to the G20 Agreement DeVos signed.

devospub

But, wait, Warriors, Rep. Foxx from NC has also declared what ‘all education’ is, too!

foxxed

Wait, though, my followers..is all education charter schools? Back in 2018, I showed you how the U.S. Dept. of Education was using the global workforce agenda (which CTE breeds) as an excuse to use charters to increase the levels of CTE and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) in education.

In 2018, the comparison between the US idea of what ‘education’ should be and what the UN expects education to be. Warriors, this will impact the re-authorization of the HEA (Higher Education Act).

From earlier this year, the difference between academics and ‘competency’ on a US/global scale.

What does President Trump think ‘all education’ is? Apprenticeship based (CTE and STEM)!

Closing:

Warriors, I’m sure about you, but all this ‘innovation’ is not helpful for our nation. We are seeing everyone BUT teachers define what ‘education’ is or isn’t. We see our students facing a future that, frankly, a strait-jacket laced one. Be sure to look at the ‘innovation’ link directly above. It’s for a conference held in the past few months. It’s all about innovation in education. Once you’ve looked, contact your leaders in your State. Give them an earful!

Upcycling ‘Education’

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Memorial Day Weekend is behind us. We’ve like to think the CCSS Machine’s overreaches in education are behind us, too. However, our 116th Congress has made it THEIR mission to undermine the Americans (in education, at least), yet again.

congressjob

It wasn’t enough they mocked us in the 115th Congress with bills which supposedly were to help education go back to the States, or back to the Moms and Dads.

No, the 116th has ‘upcycled’ 2 bills for ending the federal grasp on education.

upcycle

I imagine you are wondering what rock has hit me on the head. After all, isn’t ending the federal grasp on education what we’ve been fighting for? Dreaming of? Sure it is, HOWEVER, this bills are NO real solution. In fact, they BOTH extend the federal control!

Back during the 115th Congress I exposed how HR 899 and HR 1510 were NOT going to end Common Core or whatever it has been re-branded as in your State. Neither of these were going to end ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) or stop the high-stakes assessments. Neither was going to halt the student data rape or the teacher being free to teach as their students needed it.

Why were HR 899 and HR 1510 incapable of helping us as Anti Fed Warriors? The short answer: Neither repealed ESSA!

The longer answer: By closing the U.S. Dept. of Education BEFORE a full repeal of federal educratic laws like ESSA, the problems in federal overreaches are TRANSFERRED to OTHER Federal agencies and the status quo continues!

(Below was a screen image I made for the article laying out HOW the problems of federally led education were to be split up (transferred).)
cannedroaches

Warriors, I’ve stated this stark reality many times, both on air and here, on the blog. It’s not been taken very well. You must understand that the reality is based on research and the actual bills’ language NOT personal opinion or personal attacks against those who supported HR 899 or HR 1510

The same is true for the ‘upcycle’ versions of the 116th. HR 899 is STILL HR 899, HR 1510 is now HR 1930. While I did report on HR 899 earlier this year, I’ve not covered HR 1930.

The “New” Stuff:

For HR 899, here’s a screen shot from my Part Two of the “Prudence Files”:

new899

For HR 1930 (upcycled HR 1510):

HR15101930
To see HR 1930, go here. The Anti Fed Ed Warrior question you should be asking of these co-sponsors and sponsor: Where in federal law OR found within the U.S. Constitution do you see shell games as legal, responsible, or, in need of taxpayer support?

Throwing Insult To Injury:

Warriors, as if the 116th’s Congressional insults, as to how intelligent we must be to miss their ‘upcycling’ the same agenda, we have the U.S. Census claiming some news about the effect of federal overreaches in education for Americans. The claim? How many of our tax payer dollars go towards American education.

censusbucks
(Source)

Warriors,
according to the article, the most spending is on teachers. The cost of per pupil spending is nearing $13,000.00 per child. Yet, we have more and more teachers and students in worse shape NOW than ever before! Why? The CCSS Machine is grinding them down to injurious levels!

With the next ‘big’ Census set for 2020, we need to be asking tough questions of Congress on the financial strategy they are supporting here. Given that the U.S. Dept. of Commerce (Home of the U.S. Census Bureau) is set to receive funding to implement FEPA (Foundation of Evidence-based Policy-making Act) data mining activities, we also need to ask how this will play out for our families, come Census taking time.

If you missed my article in late April 2019 about the redesigned Census, I urge you to look at how it will impact your schools and redistricting them, as well as the ultra-personal questions to be answered by American citizens.

If you’ve not seen or heard how the Census measures our schools, you’ll want to read this from their email delivery system. Warriors, it isn’t ‘pretty’.

*Anti Fed Ed Warrior question: How will the Census play into HR 899 and/or HR 1930? In all the transferring of U.S. Dept. of Education programs, funds, and, all related activities, waves of injurious level insults will be visited upon Americans.

US fed statute

Closing:

Warriors, much is being used against us, as parents and taxpayers. More is being planned to harm our students of ALL ages, backgrounds, and, current school status.

We, however, have a choice: Do we accept bills like HR 899 and/or HR 1930 and HOPE we can see an end to the abuse OR do we demand Congress does a better job for We the People and repeal ALL federal education laws?

If Congress wants ‘new’ and ‘improved’ education, then they need to get out of the way. Upcycling worn out bills and CCSS agenda is a waste of our time and energy, as well as our taxpayer dollars.

It is OUR job to hold Congress accountable. It is their job to create laws which represent OUR will, not the CCSS Machine’s mantra.

freeamericans

Otherwise, Congress members do not DESERVE to represent us. Remember THAT, my fellow Warriors, come election time.

“The Prudence Files: Part Five”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve made it! The final installment of my “The Prudence Files” series. Before we go on, I want to pause and thank those who’ve sent information, especially for Part Four. I want to thank each of you for coming back to find out the real truths not being given via mainstream media, too.

In this article, the last 2 Presidential hopefuls; private citizens. Howard Schultz (Former Starbucks CEO ) and Andrew Yang (Venture for America). Will either of these 2 offer We the People a glimmer of hope, as far as education? Let’s see what we can find out.

Schultz’s Bid:
Warriors
, while some sites say Mr. Schultz is considering running, the original source I used in Part One is where I learned he was. I did find his campaign website, so I’m pretty sure that’s a ‘winner’. Below is a picture of the website:

Schultz

Schultz is running as a ‘Centrist Independent’ candidate. In his words that means ‘governing from the middle’. According to the Centrist Party, these citizens and/or candidates have no party lines. As such rather than go with what’s popular, they go by what is right. Below is their stance on education.

centrist

Warriors
, it’s very important for me to say that Mr. Schultz is NOT the Centrist Party’s candidate. However, I wanted you to see how the Party leans. By contrast, the American Independent Party is completely different. They believe in the Judea-Christian values of our Founding Fathers (Schultz is Jewish). They also believe in States Rights for education. Again, Mr. Schultz is NOT the Independent Party’s candidate either.

So, I think it’s safe to say this ‘Centrist Independent’ COULD be a mix of the two principles. But, we also have to factor in Mr. Schultz has been a Democrat for many years.

I think you’ll understand why I wanted you to have some context before I show you what I found about Schultz’s education stance.

Where was his education stance ‘hiding’? It wasn’t in his pillars. No, it can be found in the “Howard’s Story” page on the website. I’ll admit the video has a catchy tune, there are bright colors and smiling faces. It’s all designed to ‘build you up’.

starbucks

Warriors, if you didn’t know it, ASU has been involved with some pretty horrid things for K-12th grade education. Back in 2016, I wrote about their part in a YouTube Red Channel movie called “The Thinning”. It was all about students literally dying or someone they loved die if a certain score wasn’t made on the standardized test.

If you didn’t see it, I also wrote about Starbucks and the PBIS system.

Finally, on this candidate, I’ll share this with you:

Mr. Yang:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of Venture for America, that’s ok. I’ll be sure to link the evidence for you.
vfa

(Main Website)

To access the 2016 Annual Report, go here.
Warriors, if you use Netflix and have seen “Generation Startup” that’s the feature film about what VFA does. Jobs/economic for the community’s sake. While that’s good, the tag line for the movie has to do with ‘learning to fail’. That’s a key concept the CCSS Machine loves to use. By the way, Netflix is among the CCSS Machine members/groups seeking to destroy local control.

So, you know a bit about the company Yang founded. Let’s look at his 2020 Presidential campaign.

yang
To see all his policies/issues, visit this page.

Warriors, if you read “Andrew’s Story”, he’ll tell you he was raised to go after the American Dream. You’ll learn his ties to Brown Univ. as well as Columbia Univ. (Both universities are CCSS Machine member organizations. In Part 4, I shared both their ties to the Tavistock Inst.)

You’ll also see he tells you he had an education company, but doesn’t share the name or what other group(s) bought him out. Look below:

You may find this related article helpful in connecting Yang’s for profit testing company to Knewton.

Warriors, I hope you see the toxic ties to the CCSS Machine very clearly. It appears neither of these is the Anti Fed Ed champ we need.

Warrior/Citizen Actions:

Well, Warriors, we’ve done it, taken 5 articles to lay out education/educratic stances of the 20 candidates (and possible candidates) running for President in 2020. As you know the campaigns are on-going. As you know, they will only step up in appearances.

So, what DO we do with all the information I’ve given you? Yes, it’s been grueling to slog through all their websites (or lack of), but the reason I wanted to do this for the nation, especially you, my fellow Warriors, is we HAVE to make as much noise as possible!

I told you in Part One I wouldn’t tell you whom to vote for. However, whomever you see you most like among the 20, do this:

1) Attend as many meetings of his or hers as possible. Forget party allegiance, the politicians certainly have. Is this risky? Absolutely, BUT, gladly risk your comfort zone for the children, I am. So can you. Don’t develop tunnel vision, watch for debates, shows, etc. Listen to what’s said (or not said).
2) We all know in war (War Vs the Core) you have to hang out with the enemy from time to time. Just be prudent and don’t go alone. Whatever you do, be respectful, there is going to be enough strife. If you are rude in making your points, you’ll be discounted. Remember, these are people, not punching bags (words or fists).
3) Take the points about the candidates which trouble you the most and speak out! Steer the conversation, don’t give up! (Written ones are the best and provide a copy with facts and links to point to Anti Fed Ed truths.)
4) Write open letters, letters to the editor, call in to like minded radio shows, no matter how big or small. Request private media shows centered around these Anti Fed Ed truths the nation needs to know and hear. Make your own video and share.
5) Speak up, hold them accountable! That is part of a prudent voter/Warrior’s ‘job’.
6) Write to them, show them the roots to the agenda, the globalization of our nation via education, let them know, it’s unconstitutional, it’s criminal and they shouldn’t be a part of it!
7) Don’t kowtow or get star struck by these candidates, don’t worry about making a scene. Remember who you are fighting for: our kids, our young people, our freedoms, our choices.
8) Pepper their websites with Anti Fed Ed truth, not mainstream subjective BS.
9) Participate in citizen forums, round-table discussions. If you didn’t know what you know now, think about all those around you who will remain clueless, unless you speak up. Use your circle of influence. Stay in communication. Host ‘Did Ya Know?’ type neighborhood events. While we’re about serious business, we can have some fun, too.
Use this type of event to bring to light the candidates on education. Compare notes and discuss maturely.

(Think along the lines of “Horton Hears a Who”, ALL our voices, united against the CCSS Machine is imperative!)

hortonhears(photo courtesy of Clipart)

What if you don’t like any of the 20 candidates?
1) Choose the one most closely related to your beliefs and WORK with them to bring them around to the truth.
2) These people MUST be reminded they are seeking to represent WE the People, not the special interests groups, lobbyists, or Big Corporations.
3) If the candidate isn’t willing to work with you or accept the truth, then you know they are ‘bought and paid for’ by the CCSS Machine and move on.
4) IF you find that out, share the news, so others will know. It’s better to be called an idiot for being right than a silent partner in the grinding down of American education.
5) Apply any of the other action steps above you desire.
6) Inform and ‘use’ your circle of influence. Provide updates for them.

As of this article, I can find no Republican Debate schedule. Back in 2018, the National Republican Committee voted to disband the Debate organizers and team. That doesn’t mean there may be no debates, but it means we need to be watching for them.

I did find this website, which has both the Ds and Rs information in one location. Use at your discretion.

Use the Commission on Presidential Debates for news updates. I’ve embedded the link to their Debate Applicant locations. (*Note: no 2019 or 2020 sponsors have been announced, but look at previous sponsors. Are there CCSS Machine member groups represented? If so urge a non-bias organization to step up.) You can also access previous Debate transcripts. These might be helpful in writing your letters.

The location for the Republican National Convention is Charlotte, NC.
The location for the Democratic National Convention is Milwaukee, WI.
(*Note: Are there any Warriors near either of these cities? If so, we should plan to meet somewhere. I live in NC, and, it just so happens not too far from Charlotte. I’d love to see a group near Milwaukee, too. We could do live presentations or updates.) 


The Democrats will conduct their Convention in July 2020.
The Republicans will conduct theirs in August 2020.
