Not-so-Funny Money

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

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

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

SIBs and BitCoins:

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

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

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

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

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

Paying For Our ‘Sins’?

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

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

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

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

Using Gender For Their Agenda:

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Doing The DIB:

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

The UN’s Women’s Movement:

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

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

However, you’ve seen and read the evidence.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BS-Meter

Closing:

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

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

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).

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.

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

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

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

Policy Over Law

Hello, my fellow Anti CCSS/Fed Ed Warriors!

In today’s article, I’ll be exposing a set of  bills from D.C. where education policy is being exalted over education law. The irony is, the legislation COULD become law in the end.

We’ve seen countless of CCSS Machine examples of ‘policy’ being made more important than the laws created. Congress, is also top notch at confusing policy and law; or at least that’s how it is looking.

policynotlaw

Let’s review quickly though, what the differences between the two really are.

Policy is an interpretation of a law or laws. Policy is something anyone can create in response to an existing law or laws. Policy should not be binding. Policies are usually ‘bought and paid for’ ideas posing as powerful regulations.

Laws are binding. Laws must follow a precise order to be created and applied. Laws are not for sale. Laws are powerful regulatory documents. Laws are binding.

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

Meet the STEM ‘Sisters’ Policy Bills:

Warriors, S 1270 and HR 2653 are currently sitting in the Senate HELP and House’s Science, Space, and Technology Committees respectively. The shared name of the bills? “STEM Opportunities Act of 2017”. As I’ve pointed out before, just because it’s dated 2017, doesn’t mean it’s not an issue. These can come out of committee at any point during what’s left of the 115th Session. Either bill can also show up in the future, too.

Both put a global policy surrounding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) into each Bill for competitive economics.

Here’s the problem: STEM is a UN (United Nations) led program straight out of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). It’s every bit as tied to the CCSS Machine as Bill Gates is. STEM documentation proves the goal all along was a STEM economy in America driven by STEM citizens for global competitiveness. We are well on our way to becoming that ‘STEM nation with a STEM people holding STEM jobs for a global STEM economy’ which was ushered in during previous presidencies.

Bills like S 1270 and HR 2653 simply speed up the process.

Sadly, Warriors, these ‘sisters’ are not exclusive. There are many other STEM bills (as well as STEM laws) floating around D.C. (*Note: STEM has a ‘sister’, too. STEAM: Science Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math.) Just like STEM has UN roots, STEAM has roots from another country. Both are passed off as “American made”. Both are also usually laughed off with this comment, “Oh, we’ve always had science, technology, engineering, and, math. This isn’t new stuff!”

bones-say-it
STEM, by way of Common Core..and not in a distant galaxy.


So what do S 1270 and HR 2653 do?
From the opening paragraph before the S 1270’s legislative language begins. “To direct the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy to carry out programs and activities to ensure that Federal science agencies and institutions of higher education receiving Federal research and development funding are fully engaging their entire talent pool, and for other purposes.”
(*Note: HR 2653 has 21 Representatives as sponsor and co-sponsors. S 1270 has 4 Senators as sponsor/co-sponsors.)

The justification for these 2 bills is that Congress has had many STEM related reports over the past 10 years. According to these Reports, not everyone is in the STEM pool. These bills will help correct that. Another justifying statement? It’s critical for our national economy and global competitiveness to educate and train more scientists and engineers. Among the Reports named, three CCSS Machine D.C. taxpayer funded agencies are. The NSF (National Science Foundation, NASA, and the U.S. Dept. of Labor.
Warriors, the NSF was the agency which created the term STEM as a marketing tool!
Reports and data mining from the University of California and the Association for Women in Science are also included. (*Note: AWIS, Assoc. for Women in Science is a global group. Their article devoted to inspiring young girls to be STEM girls, is one you should check out.)

On Page 7, it’s revealed the federal government funds 60 percent of all research conducted in higher education. The entire purpose of the two Bills?

s1270.jpg

These purposes will be carried out in education and jobs. Notice the amount of the use of the word ‘federal’ in these two.

STEM for Vets:

Yes, Warriors, our U.S. Veterans cannot be left out of the education and job alignment. HR 4323 (Supporting Vets in STEM Careers Act) has passed the U.S. House and is currently in the Senate’s Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee.
Vets will be data mined and encouraged to gain STEM jobs. What a great ‘thanks’ for serving America. Get globally aligned.

H Con Resolution 29:
The U.S. House resolved and the Senate concurred that the entire Congress would commit itself to increase access and jobs (especially for women and minorities) to STEAM education and careers. This Resolution ups the data mining and data tracking of our citizens and uses AP (Advanced Placement courses) as fodder for ’21st Century jobs’.

HR 4375, “STEM Research and Education Effectiveness and Transparency Act”:
This bill has also passed the House and is in the Senate’s Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. This one gives the NSF more power. Targets women and minorities for studies and careers in STEM. This bills will also use federal grants as bait to State level government. (*Note: The Senate Committee mentioned has a huge ‘corner on the market’ for America’s infrastructure, including digital access.)

Closing:

Warriors, STEM also ties to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). In this article I laid out for everyone that fact and several others about this affront to America.

Well, there you have it, Warriors. The STEM legislation is ripe in D.C. So, the stench of all those confusing policy as law at our expense.
