Ed’s Potpurri

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, while the main stream news tries to overload us with ‘squirrels’, the U.S. Dept. of Education is carrying on the status quo.

Should THIS be main stream information? I believe so. Why? Because everyday the status quo in ‘education’ is carried out, millions of lives are being harmed.

THAT, my fellow Warriors, should be OUR only news!

I believe if it were our only news, we’d be more inclined to jump in and save our nation’s citizens.

MLKquote

Think of it this way. Potpourri is used to help rooms smell good. Some potpourri mixes are pleasing to our noses, while others assault our noses with a bad smell. Not everyone can be around potpourri, if it contains something they are allergic to.

When the CCSS Machine rolled into America, it replaced the good, quality education (pleasing potpourri) with a stench SO bad, it’s smelled world-wide. The abysmal education we see trotted out isn’t for everyone, either, however, it is all we’re getting.

rottennut

For the remainder of this article, I’ll share with you some of the latest news from the U.S. Dept. of Education. I warn you, the ‘smell’ is vile.

 

Ed’s “Smell” in Transmedia circa 2015 To Present:

In an email from the U.S. Dept. of Ed, sent last week (Aug.2019), several items were brought up.
While a new TV ‘transmedia’ (short for “transmitted media”) was released, the link used in the email took you to what you see below. There was no press release date, so it wasn’t until you began to read the information about ‘transmedia’ that the 2015 date shows up as ‘new’.
By the way, the RtL (Ready to Learn) TV can be seen on PBS (already a CCSS Machine member group). To see the entire page (be sure to read the ‘about RtL’ portion at the bottom of the page. You’ll spot the source of the ‘smell’: school readiness.)

transmedia


Ready to Learn TV got its start based off money and policy. It also gears itself around the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandate for 365, 24/7 access to educational media. This ‘access’ is to encompass EVERY school choice, even homeschools.

While we can trace the money back to the CCSS Machine (includes WestEd), where did the policy come from? Northwestern University! Back in 2015, I shared with you  the Northwestern University’s Kellogg Center CCSS Machine ties. For RtL TV, the Northwestern department is the Communications Dept.

Warriors, let’s also see if we can spot the agenda’s smell by the term ‘transmedia’. With all the confusion surrounding ‘trans’ in other education subjects, won’t a move like this help further the confusion?

Ed’s Globalistic “Opportunity Zones”:

Also from that email last week, was the news that Sec. DeVos wants to enfold the Presidential Initiative for Opportunity Zones into education.

edopzone

Warriors, this absolutely smells of treason!! How? First, ESSA is a K-12th grade law which codified WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). WIOA had Opportunity Zones already in place! ESSA also mandated regionalized education. Regionalism is 100% United Nations. As far as education goes, across our nation, the regionalism is well entrenched through College and Career Readiness hubs. Secondly, this move to align education to job opportunities supports the G20 ed/labor document DeVos signed on behalf of our nation.

Warriors, we have an opportunity to weigh in on DeVos’s desires, but we MUST act by August 28th!! As of this article, only 3 other citizens have spoken out. Two of those 3 are citing corruption. Mine cited the uniting of education and labor is treasonous and illegal. You’ll find the Federal Registry link above (opportunity zone initiative is highlighted for you).

Ed’s Update To Data Mining:

Warriors, we know the ‘smell’ of data mining well. Of all the rotten potpourri scents, this one is the stinker of them all!

Warriors, to further learn about the Ellucian Banner System (supposedly will make higher education stronger), go here.

UNdatatrack

Ed;  As If America’s Not Global Enough Already:

The folks at the U.S. Dept. of Education are laying out what they hope is a teasing scent to entice us to look toward International Education Week (11/18-22/19).

iew2019

When you visit the embedding link (above), be sure to listen to the Secretary of the State’s video message. In it, he claims international education will help promote American values all over the world.

I ask you, Warriors, how is this possible when our very values are being thrown away and replaced with the United Nations’?

The, if you can actually stand listening to Sec. DeVos, you need to. Her fragrance of globalism almost wafts off the screen! Listen for ‘lifelong learning’ and being career ready. DeVos’s direction in education is steering right into the global workforce.
(Note: Below, OECD is the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development)

Closing:

Warriors, if your nose if full of bad smells by now, I’d like to invite you to refresh your sense of smell with some truth.

1) We the People are more in number than the US federal government; we need to act on this.

2) Everything the U.S. Dept. of Education is doing, has done, and is planning is illegal. Everything they are doing spills over into every other federal agency.
We should revolt against this.

3) We are governed by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, NOT the United Nations declarations of conformity. We need to be persistent with this message in reaching our officials.

4) We should no longer call any educrat, regardless of office status, a ‘leader’. Where they are leading is NOT where we should go.
Leaders should be honest and respecting of their followers.
No one in the CCSS Machine is a leader to us. No one in the CCSS Machine respects us.
They are underminers of our nation and destroyers of our future as free citizens. They are our enemies. We need to act like it.
We will change nothing in this War Vs the Core by playing nice.

5) We are the protectors of our children, we cannot allow them to suffer under this educratic takeover anymore.

Know Thy Neighbor

Anti Fed Ed Warriors ~ we must be on guard at all times and keep our eyes open.
Another popular Diva post, “Whoa, Neighbor!“, reveals an example of who is promoting community engagement programs with the goal of peering further into our private lives.  Keep an eye out folks, you don’t just hand anyone the keys to your home.

Whoa, Neighbor!

Ushered in via the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act): Title 4 Funding’s “wrap arounds” and more Promise Neighbors.

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, what I’m about to share happened to me this past weekend. I got a seemingly harmless piece of mail. It was geared for my neighborhood and looked like a great way to get involved. I mean, after all, how many of us know to fight our War Vs the Core, we need to be locally minded first, then, venture out.

ESSA In Our Communities:

Below, is the letter I received. Notice how it states we can keep up with crime, safety, find our pets, etc. Nowhere do you see ‘school’ or “education”.

But, after digging into just who/what “Nextdoor” is, I found it’s VERY much in education. To the point it’s partnering with schools to breed community engagement. Something ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) embedded as a mandate.

nextdoorletter

Where in ESSA is the ‘community engagement’ language?
You’ll find ‘community’ 170 times.
You’ll also find community is involved in Sections 4001-4206 (21st Century Community Learning Centers); Sections 4501-4506 (Family Engagement), and, Section 4611 (Ed Research, Sub-part 2 Community Support for School Success), Section 4624 (Promise Neighborhoods), Section 4625 (Full service community schools), and ‘community colleges’, which are written throughout the law.

Back in 2018, I showed you how NC (where I live) has annual conferences to embed the community in education. In that article the Community in Education Conference was centered on ‘building capacity’ via ‘innovations’. This year’s was “personalized learning”.  Look in your State for similar programs.

The Nextdoor Company:

Warriors, you can access the website here.

nextdoor

From their Press Release section: “Headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., Nextdoor is a privately held company with the backing of prominent investors, including Benchmark, Greylock Partners, Tiger Global Management, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and others.”

So, how did I find Nextdoor in our schools? I did a general search.

The NY Times published in 2018, how the company can be used in politics. We know politics and education intertwine.

In 2015, the Tennessean published that Metro Nashville Public Schools became the first school district in the nation to partner with Nextdoor for a broader sense of community involvement in education.

If you look at one of the co-founders of Nextdoor, you’ll see she’s got ties to both Harvard and Microsoft, two huge CCSS Machine member groups. You’ll also see service on a MA school board.

When you think about the need for verification of address, that should alarm you. Why? It means your home address is being tracked. It’s not a far jump to remember that these on-line companies also can benefit from the smart devices students bring home which have been issued at schools.

Also consider that since FEMA and NOAA are also CCSS Machine member federal agencies/programs, it’s not a far stretch to think HUD (also among the federal CCSS Machine member agencies) will become involved with address and home ownership verification.

While it doesn’t appear Nextdoor is that creepy yet, it never hurts to be proactive. I do know that there has been talk about one day down the road, Nextdoor could be among internet providers. We KNOW that means massive trouble as far as personal data, especially when combined with school partners.

This “How Stuff Works” article points out that Nextdoor has had issues with racial profiling, but it working on it. The article also explains how services like Nextdoor have a niche market. How will privacy laws like FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy-making) factor in? What about the bullying aspect? If racial profiling’s an issue, how in the name of all that’s holy, will school partners prevent terrible behavior? What about hacking the neighborhood or school information?

To answer some of these questions, as well as to learn (page 7) how NextDoor owns your data once it’s supplied, the Ga Tech Study will be handy. In the GT Study are 13 references to data.

In 2017, CNBC reported Nextdoor was worth over $1 billion dollars in venture capital. Warriors, venture capitalists HATE local control in education. At least the CCSS Machine member venture capitalists like Netflix, Global Silicon Valley, etc.

Speaking of GSV (Global Silicon Valley), Nextdoor is among the Top 10 performers of  the GSV portfolio. So, all that data and those privacy concerns ARE a big deal after all!

Below are just a FEW of the education related groups also in the GSV portfolio. Since Nextdoor is too, I connected them for you.

gsvnext

If you’d like to see all my previous research and articles on GSV, go here.

One last thought, Warriors, Nextdoor and police departments partner together in several cities. Have you seen the large net law enforcement has, thanks to ESSA’s ‘school safety’ mandates? “Law enforcement” is embedded 6 times. Most are the student’s safety, but, we also know that lots of data sharing will take place. Again, with laws like FEPA, law enforcement agencies were given an increase in the amount of information they can collect and share. FEPA is also a back door to removing our 2nd Amendment rights.

Closing:

Warriors, in this day and age, take NOTHING at face value. I’m glad I did some digging into my neighborhood ‘watch’. Now that you know, warn someone who uses Nextdoor. Talk with someone considering it. They’re in for much more than a simple, ‘let’s be neighbors’ chat.

My Thanks To You

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I’d be remiss if I didn’t take my hat off to all the teachers out there who fight for our kids against the CCSS Machine.  I don’t appreciate you for one week out of the year, I appreciate your spunk EVERY day!

momscorn

I’d also like to give a shout out to all our Mom Warriors. Many of us have been at this for years, while we see newer Moms join us.

We win the daily battles in uniting against all that seeks to harm our kids, no matter if we actually gave birth to them or not. Our kids are OURS.

To all our Dads out there who’ve stepped up and had to fill Mom’s shoes for whatever reason, I salute you, too. Your presence in the War Vs the Core is vital.

superdad
My Wish For Every Parent, Everyday:

Warriors, with Mother’s Day Weekend, quickly approaching. I wanted to take the time to wish every Mom; every parent, and, every teacher to not give up. I know you hate the CCSS Machine and all that comes with it. You know I do, too.

If you’re like me, you know that even with the tough days we face, we have to keep protecting our kids.

While we are in a War Vs the Core, we also know the odds against us are steep. Steep or not, we choose every day, to pick up our ‘super hero cape’ and fight on. THANK YOU!

momscape
So, I’m not going to get sappy, Warriors.
You won’t get rosy speeches or flowers from me. We can shower each other with the spoils of this War later.

What I DO wish for you is the same thing I posted a few days ago on my Facebook wall:
“*I wish for you to stand up for your kids and mine; I want you to stand strong for them when they are weak. You never know how many times I’ve stood for them while shielding my own.
**I wish for you to crush ‘those boxes’ in front of you, so they can see boxes are not meant to define us or confine us.
***I wish for you to firm when needed, laugh largely EVERY chance you get, to love fiercely, and fight even moreso.
****I wish for you to know when one of us stumbles and falls, others are there to lift you up.
*****Challenge each other to stay strong and stand the course.”

Why Do We Fight?

We want desperately to ‘win’ the War Vs the Core. A complete and total ‘win’, too. What would that even look like?

In a ‘perfect’ world? We’ve see ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) repealed. We see Congress respect the U. S. Constitution and remove every OTHER federally overreaching law into education. We’d see the UN (United Nations) run out of America faster than a speeding bullet. We’d see teachers freed from the mandates which hold them back and students who’s privacy and emotions were not manipulated. We’d also know that the constant testing and alignment to agendas which do not match our values would be history. We’d see school boards released from the bondage of conformity and work with parents for long than 3 minute timed speeches. We’d see every single participant from the CCSS Machine held criminally charged with child abuse. Lastly, we’d demand a full and total refund from every profiteer off our children and settle for no less than a public apology to accompany their checks.

prodparent
One of my most distinct messages I’ve created to express my ire toward the CCSS Machine.

We fight for freedom, respect, justice, and truth. Every child deserves that.
We fight to make ANY variation of our ‘complete win’ possible. Every blow against the CCSS Machine is a victory. Don’t discount ANY victory, Warriors!

What We Pass On Matters:

Warriors, I don’t have to tell you our kids learn what matters MOST from us.

As Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I trust your kids hate the overreaches as much as you do! I hope they are standing up beside us and fighting back.

I’ll leave you with this…mompower

What do you think my daughters have learned from my actions? They, to this day, still ‘salute’ the CCSS Machine.

Warriors, go be awesome this weekend. Be fantastic every day! Why? Every day we fight for the right things is a GREAT day!

“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:

starcc

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:

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.

Upcoming Election Resources:

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.

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!!

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.

(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.

Pardon Me?!

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, there have been so many topics I’ve covered over the past few years about the terrible overreach into our kids’ lives. Some of these topics have made me very angry. Some have broken my heart. Today’s? ‘Incensed’ would be a fitting description.

What would possibly have me upset? Recently, there’s been some discussion over State led sex education, but what about sex education legislation in Congress? Is there such? Is this what is driving the States? Not so recent (2015), I gave you an in-depth look at how Title 9’s rewording helped open Pandora’s box for sex education in our States.

I’ll admit, I’m not the first to discuss the CCSS Machine’s misinformation and inappropriateness of sex education in the classrooms. We’ve also seen how after school programs include sex education have negatively left their mark on families across the nation. However, it’s time we see what the current group of Congressional members is up to when it comes to sex education.

Meet HR 3602 and S 1653, Real Education for Healthy Youth Act of 2017:

fedsex

To read HR 3602 or S 1653, click on your choice. They are identical twin bills. While both have been in their Committee appointments since their introduction, we should note that these could become active at any time. In all the 34 pages of either Bill, you’ll see a thread of ‘school safety’ woven throughout. With the current events we are seeing focusing on ‘school safety’ we should be on notice. Why? ‘School safety’ encompasses a LARGE area of education.

Pardon Me?! Congress Said What?!

62509360
Warriors, one more time (or in this case, twice), the ‘sense of Congress’ is used in laying out the parameters for sex education contained in HR 3602 and S 1653. Not to be too simple, but haven’t we suffered enough illegally based education overreach as a result of the ‘sense of Congress’ to last a lifetime?!

Excuse me, but “NO!”, Congress, I DO NOT want your ‘sense’ to mandate what Johnny and Suzy learn about sex. I think if you ask the majority of taxpayers, they would also say “No!”.

demagouge

The Language For Sex Education:

Beginning on Page 4 of either Bill, here are the things every federally funded sex education program should have (or as it is written, ‘should aim for’):

a) Cover a wide range of sex topics (like human development, healthy relationships, personal skills, abstinence, preventing unwanted pregnancies, preventing sexual diseases, and sex in culture and society.)
b) How to have safe and healthy relationships
c) Promote gender equality
d) Use the best scientific resources available to teach A-C topics
e) Have everyone in education appropriate with gender identities, gender expressions, etc.
f) Use the best-practices approach for E
g) Will ‘evaluate’ effective sex education and expand the body of research used, as needed
h) Expand teacher preparation/training in comprehensive sex education
i) Build a stronger sex education program based off existing ones found from the SSA (Social Security Act) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control)
j) Promote and uphold the students rights concerning their sexual choices

Warriors, we’re also told what federally funded sex education programs CANNOT contain. There are 8 items:
1) Withholding life saving or health-promoting information about any sexuality topic (including HIV)
2) Medically inaccurate or not effective
3) Promote gender or race stereotypes
4) Insensitive or non responsive to a youth’s sexual activities
5) Insensitive or disrespectful toward survivors of sexual harm
6) Insensitive towards youth of all needs (including physical, mental, or developmental) or abilities
7) Insensitive towards youth and their gender expression, identity, or sexual orientation
8) Doesn’t comply with ethical public health or medical imperatives.

Page 6 is where you’ll find the grant awards/details for receiving them for adolescent sex education. Over on Page 13, you’ll find the grant awards/details for receiving them for higher education. 

Among the details for those young students? 
From the bottom  of Page 8 to the top of Page 9:
“substantially incorporates elements of evidence-based sex education instruction; or 
(D) creates a demonstration project based on characteristics of effective programs.”
Warriors
, remember, this is for children under the age of 21!

(*Note, Pages 9 – mid 13 lay out exactly what comprehensive sex education is. Please,  read these items for yourselves so you can get the full picture as to what students will learn and what people are to be involved.)

If you have a student (or are one) in higher education, including those who are earning a degree in education, the details begin mid Page 13 and extend to Page 20 (ends mid page). Warriors, these requirements are VERY concerning!

The Sex Ed Evaluation (aka ‘student data rape’):

Warriors, I’m embarrassed to share these next few items. I’m so upset that our taxpayer dollars even were used in conjunction to the making of these caveats of legislation.
However, if we are to fight the War Vs the Core, we need to know all the facts, not just the ones which are pleasing.

According to the section for evaluating comprehensive sex education (across the board), massive amounts of data will be needed. If ever the reality of the severity of ‘student data rape’ needs to be seen, it is within HR 3062 and S 1635, you’ll find it.

For starters, third party non profits will be contractually bound to conduct the evaluations and collect the data. Then, the collection must meet nationally set technology standards, use behavior science evaluation techniques, incorporate quasi-experimental designs for drawing conclusive results. (you can find the exact language on Page 21)

Oh, and student outcomes which are measured?! Number of hours for instruction of comprehensive sex education; the student’s growth, development, and relationship dynamics; how well the student can prevent unwanted pregnancy, sexual diseases; how well the student understands their sexual health; will the students be able to set goals, make decisions, communicate well, negotiate well; will the student be capable to have great interpersonal relationships and have healthy ones; can the student effectively use a condom, what was the age of their first sexual intercourse, what type of contraception or condom is being used, dating history, sexual harassment or attacks, and, last on the list?…. Academic performance!

As far as the public receiving this type of student information, it will be made available in 6 years and after the data has been shared everywhere it can be in DC. What will those third party contractors do with the data? Just guess, Warriors.

Closing:

Warriors,  this is not the first time the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act has been introduced, but it is the latest. According to the  Human Rights Campaign website, HR 3026 and S 1635 are not only much needed, but absolutely imperative to have as federal law. If you read the Human Rights Campaign article, notice the national and global groups which have been pressing for this type of federal law for a few years.

Future Lawyers addressed only the health aspect of the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act by summing it up that teen pregnancy in the US should drop. Not one word about the fact the Bills state that the U.S. Dept. of Education is also heavily involved.

Pardon me, Warriors, but the last folks who should be in charge of sex education is Congress or anyone in DC. They can’t handle their own sex lives without scandal, but, somehow we can trust they have our student’s best interests at heart?

Health + Education doesn’t equal as much learning as the CCSS Machine wants us to believe at any point in time. Health + Education DOES equal values, attitudes, and beliefs that ECHO federal government, NOT the family’s personal choices.

Do we need sex education? When appropriately conducted, yes! Do we need the federal government running it? Absolutely not!
