Looking At The Reality Of Education – Part 2 Comparing Options of Educating for Families

Comparing Options of Educating for Families Here is a quick look at what Betsy DeVos has to come up to speed on quickly. Incorporating homeschool into the Department of Education thinking along with other innovations or methods may need to become a reality for our country and our budget. It is also a starting point on how parents need to be evaluating their children’s educational options. Public education is for everyone regardless of ability to pay, disability, and other issues. It began in answer to a deep desire for people to know how to read, write, and do other things like … Continue reading

Looking At The Reality Of Education – Part 1

Looking At The Reality Of Education Today With all of the stupidity and lack of basic knowledge currently being exhibited by snowflakes on college campuses, it has definitely become evident that the billions upon billions of dollars invested in education since the 1960’s has been poorly used and taxpayers poorly served. Betsy DeVos finally and barely got approved as the new Secretary of Education.  Many Democrats and a few Republicans have questioned her ability and experience.  Certainly, it has come to my mind as well.  While she has been actively involved in education and politics for many years, I am … Continue reading

An Open Letter To America And Her New President

By Dave Merrick —— Bio and Archives December 31, 2016 Years ago in a Wal-Mart, I was walking past the toy department. A screaming four year-old was demanding that his mom buy him the little car set he had opened and scattered all over the floor. After the young mother had several times declined and asked him to come along with her, the boy threw one of the toys at her, leaving a cut on her forehead. The rattled mom stood there and began slowly counting as some parents do before administering discipline. After she got to ‘five’, the kid … Continue reading

Public Education Is A Money Pit

where money goes in and shit comes out. That is, unless you are a rich elitist like Obama (and the rest of the elitists) who can send HIS/THEIR kids to the finest schools that money can buy while being against school vouchers for the rest of us deplorables. EXCERPT:  “Since World War II, inflation-adjusted spending per student in American public schools has increased by 663 percent. Where did all of that money go? One place it went was to hire more personnel. Between 1950 and 2009, American public schools experienced a 96 percent increase in student population. During that time, … Continue reading

You Rotten Communist Russian Spies – Have You No Shame?

An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo Russian Propaganda We have used a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) the following as Russian propaganda outlets. We then confirmed our initial assessment by applying whatever criteria we did not originally employ during the red-flag process, and we reevaluate our findings as needed.  Please note that our criteria are behavioral. That means the characteristics of the propaganda outlets we identify are motivation-agnostic. For purposes of this definition it does not matter whether the sites listed here … Continue reading

Progressives Are The Enemies of Freedom and Liberty

It must be noted, learned, and as Hanoi John Fonda Kerry said, “seared into our brains,” that our liberty, our freedom, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution come from Natural Rights, i.e., freedom of speech, and thus, the Creator. This freedom, if you will, then follows a path to a free people, a free nation, religious freedom, and then a people self-governed. When these ingredients are combined in the proper formula, they yield a nation steeped in prosperity with an overflowing abundance for one and all, in the American dream. The Progressives, on the other hand, not only outright … Continue reading

BLM and Higher Education – Political Platform For The Rich and Infamous

“Ideological billionaires sway universities’ agendas with big bucks” – Washington Times August 26, 2015 “Donors have always given to causes they believe in.  When John D. Rockefeller gave to the University of Chicago back in the 1890s, people were terrified at the time, whether or not that was ideologically motivated, if it could be dangerous, but it’s turned out to be one of the best schools of social sciences in the country and hasn’t done harm,” said Angela Seaworth, the director of the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at Rice University, when questioned if billionaires giving to higher-education was … Continue reading

Is there a Coup in the Works?

Not long ago Stephen Coonts put out a new book. LIBERTY’S LAST STAND. Islamic terrorists lit the fuse…but a treacherous president planted the bomb. With the nation in shock over a series of Islamist outrages (shooting up a Catholic grade school and a baseball game are just two of them) by “refugees”, the president of the United States – Barry Soetoro – imposes martial law, cancels the imminent presidential election, and suspends the Constitution. In response, Texas secedes—and what follows is the bloodiest, most harrowing internal insurrection since the Civil War. The purges that follow arrest thousands of people, including … Continue reading

Pedophilia – the Next Sexual Rights Revolution?

  JEROME R. CORSI NEW YORK – The underlying assumption that has led to the increasing legitimization of same-sex marriage is now fueling a growing effort in academic circles to mainstream pedophilia. Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior. If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized. James Cantor, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in the Law and Mental Health … Continue reading

DANGER: Gulen Charter Schools and the Fethullah Gulen Movement

By Diane Kepus May 21, 2016 NewsWithViews.com “The charter school experiment has resulted in the United States being the only country in the world where the Gülen Movement has been able to establish schools fully funded by the host country’s taxpayers.” -The Joke’s on US!   The world should never forget “Islam is a Human time bomb ignited by a hair trigger called hatred – them toward us”. The Gulen Charter schools and the Gulen Movement must be removed from the United States. I recently wrote an article regarding the CIA’s role in allowing Sheikh Mohammed Fethullah Gulen into this … Continue reading

CAIR Demanding SDSU President Resign After He Defended Free Speech

BY SEATTLE4TRUTH · MAY 16, 2016 A while ago a Jewish group posted some posters around campus claiming that the Israeli divestment groups had links to terrorists. CAIR, the Council of American-Islamic relations, and some students freaked the fuck out, and in response the president of the school said that he wasn’t going to ban the posters because the Jewish group had a right to free speech. Naturally, an Islamist group like CAIR loathes free speech, so now they’re trying to get him canned for his support of the first amendment at a state-run, public university. And this isn’t just … Continue reading

Texas City Says “Enough Already” With the Refugees

From Breitbart: The city of Amarillo, in the Texas panhandle, now sports the dubious title of having the country’s highest ratio of refugees from Middle East nations. City officials are asking for a halt to the resettlement of these refugees because of the negative impact on their community. Amarillo is now home to more than 1,000 refugees from the Middle East. This gives the city the highest ratio of refugees in the nation, Watchdog.org’s Kenric Ward reported. This has created problems for city and school officials. One resident, William Sumerford, an activist for local taxpayers, said the Amarillo schools are dealing … Continue reading

Common Core and the Saudi Connection – Part III

In the last of our 3-part series we take a look at what our kids are doing in classrooms across America. What’s happening in our classrooms? Only four states have not adopted Common Core into their curriculum. States highlighted in green have adopted the Common Core Standards, while states highlighted in blue only adopted the Common Core Standards for English language arts. In Volusia County, Florida, Hamas-CAIR is on the offensive. The textbook “World History” dedicates very little to Christianity or Judaism yet it contains a 32-page chapter fondly devoted to “Muslim Civilizations.” Sections include descriptions of the Koran, the growth of the Muslim empire … Continue reading

Common Core and the Saudi Connection – Part II

Yesterday we began this series by talking about where the money comes from to fund this catastrophic disaster of an education curriculum known as Common Core; today we look at who’s getting that money, along with our taxpayer dollars. What kind of compensation do these creators of Common Core receive for their efforts to fundamentally change our education system for the worse? It’s often said that Common Core is a state-led initiative. It is not. This is not a mandate that state and local politicians can claim is being foisted upon them.  Like many “voluntary” federal programs, the acceptance of Common Core … Continue reading

Common Core and the Saudi Connection – Part I

Thank you to a loyal reader and concerned patriot, carolinmd, who recently reminded me of a topic I had on my ‘to-do’ list that had been shoved to the back burner, but right now it needs some more exposure. We’re reading more and more posts about Islam being taught in our schools while Christianity takes a back seat, when it gets a seat at all. For years, parents have been protesting the creeping sharia in our schools and lately it seems to be picking up speed. Because there is so much information regarding this topic, we’ll break this down into three … Continue reading

Tennessee: Muslims vs. Christians

From 100percentfedup: The new America, where this is accepted. This is not. The Council on American-Islamic Relations is a bullying organization that wants its way and if they don’t get it they scream, “ISLAMOPHOBIA!” The leaders are pushing Islam into every community across America and there’s no stopping them until Americans understand they DO NOT want to coexist and assimilate into America. Tennessee has been flooded with Muslim refugees over the past few years so CAIR has taken a foothold everywhere. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is calling on people in Tennessee to oppose a bill that would prevent … Continue reading

“Something Needs To Be Said”

From Clash Daily: TENNESSEE PASTOR: Is Telling Kids to Rebel Against Islam In Their Schools and We Love It This Pastor isn’t taking Islam lightly when it comes to students learning it in their public school. This needs to be sent to every parent in America. A Mt. Juliet pastor went on video with concerns Wilson County Schools is indoctrinating and brainwashing students with Islam through its curriculum, which generated a denial by the district on its Facebook page. Pastor Greg Locke of Global Vision Bible Church filmed the video in front of West Wilson Middle School, which was posted on his Facebook … Continue reading
