Liberals sure aren’t going to be happy with this video. Their entire platform against Trump is based on the assumption that he has simply been saying these things to gain votes.
The truth is, Trump has been saying what needs to be fixed with America for a very long time — and now he may have a chance to follow through with his statements.

' highlights Brandon Tevlin murder case, 'Greta Investigates Lone Wolves – Enemies Among US

Allison Tevlin, the mother of murdered 19-year-old New Jersey student Brendan Tevlin, told Fox News’ “Greta Investigates” team Friday that the additional charge of terrorism brought against her son’s accused murderer, Ali Mohammad Brown, “is a good thing.”
“Hopefully it will bring more attention to my son’s case,” she added, noting her family “has been always confused why it didn’t receive more attention.”
The is the first murder case in New Jersey in which a defendant has been charged with terrorism under state law. Besides allegedly killing Tevlin on June 25, 2014, Brown is also accused of killing three other men in Washington state earlier last year. They were 30-year-old Leroy Henderson, Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27.  
Brown is expected to be arraigned August 4.  
In a new special, "Greta Investigates Lone Wolves — Enemies Among Us",  Frank Cilluffo, Director of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University, told Greta Van Susteren that the new charges against Brown are “important because it (theTevlin murder) was an act of terrorism.”

In October 2014, Fox News was first to reveal that Brown had ties to a disrupted terrorist cell, a terrorist training camp on U.S. soil, and federal investigations going back more than a decade.  
Details of Brown's criminal life and connections to radical Islam prior to the murders of the four young men is under renewed scrutiny by authorities in both New Jersey and Washington state.
After his arrest in West Orange, New Jersey in July 2014, Brown, 29, told detectives from both states that he "was engaged in jihad" and referred to the specific murder of  Tevlin as a "just kill."
Tevlin was murdered in West Orange on June 25, 2014 while sitting in his car at a traffic light. He had been shot eight times. In addition to Brown, two other men were arrested in Tevlin's murder -- Jeremy Villagran and Eric Williams. Charges against Villagran and Williams were recently dismissed.
In Seattle, authorities say ballistics link the same 9-mm. handgun that Brown used to kill Tevlin to the three other homicide investigations in Washington.
On June 1, 2014 in Seattle, Dwone Anderson-Young and Said were killed "execution style" as they sat inside a car.
Authorities say the same weapon was used on April 27, 2014 to gun down Henderson as he walked the streets of Skyway, Washington.
Two former FBI agents from the Joint Terrorism Task Force, or JTTF, told Fox News that Brown also may have traveled to one of the first terrorist training camps on U.S. soil when he was a teenager known as “Dog Cry Ranch.”
When former FBI agents David Rubincam and David Gomez were interviewed by FOX in Seattle, Gomez said, "I believe Ali Muhammad Brown at some point traveled to Bly, Ore., prior to his arrest for financial institution fraud."
The JTTF executed 19 search and arrest warrants in November 2004 after a 30-month investigation, which became known as the "Ranier Valley Roundup." No one, including Brown, was charged with terrorism.

Unearthed: The Obfuscation Of Miriam Goderich; Person Purportedly Behind OBAMA BORN IN KENYA BIO ?

WH


The Obfuscation of Miriam Goderich
Linda Jordan | Birther Report
7/31/2015


This is an old story, a true story, and it goes like this;

Once upon a time, a wannabe author named Barack Obama wrote a bio for Dystel & Goderich 1, his literary agents. In this bio Obama tells the world that he was “born in Kenya” 2 and that he is working on his first book ‘Journeys in Black and White’. That bio was included in a 1991 D & G pamphlet listing authors they represented. The bio remained on the Dystel & Goderich website for sixteen years. It was revised by Obama, or with his approval, three times during that period. Every time the claim he made about being “born in Kenya” was left intact. 
Please let this sink in. Over sixteen years Barack Obama confirmed, and confirmed, and confirmed, and confirmed, in his own bio, that he was born in Kenya.
This story deserves repeating until two of the main characters, Miriam Goderich and Jane Dystel 4, are dragged into court, sworn under oath and forced to tell the truth about Barack Obama.

Andrew Breitbart discovered Obama’s bio and published it, posthumously, on May 12, 2012. 5

ABC News and Snopes.com, a liberal “fact checking” website, immediately led the charge to come up with a logical reason why Obama would say he was “born in Kenya”. 6

Their motivation was clear. Obama was up for re-election and they wanted him to win. He had spent the last four years denying that he was born in Kenya so it would look really bad if people found out that he claimed, in his own bio, that he was born in Kenya. Also, being born in Kenya to a father who was never an American citizen would mean that you are not eligible to be a presidential candidate, much less president. 7

Did ABC and Snopes ask the author of the bio, Barack Obama, to explain why he said he was born in Kenya for sixteen years? No. That’s what a real journalist or investigator would have done. Instead they relied on Miriam Goderich, 8 Obama’s literary agent, who concocted a story to “splain” it away.

In an email statement sent to Yahoo News 9, Goderich says she was the one who edited the text of Obama’s bio; "You're undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me— an agency assistant at the time," Goderich wrote. "There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."

Brouhaha indeed. A lowly agency assistant. A simple mistake and nothing more. You silly people.

Let’s break down Goderich’s obfuscation step by step.

Goderich does not say that she wrote the bio. She says she made an “error” while “fact checking” the bio or while fact checking the “correspondence or other communications” submitted by Obama concerning his bio. The information she was “fact checking” came from Barack Obama.

The first obfuscation. It is reasonable to think that she would have checked a submitted bio for typos, punctuation and grammar but she would not have fact checked the details in the bio. The author tells you where they were born, where they went to school, where they grew up, what they’ve accomplished etc. In 1991, why would an editor fact check where Obama said he was born? She wouldn’t. 10

The second obfuscation. Goderich says that in all the information provided to them by Obama, Obama said he was born in Hawaii.
"There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii.

She’s clearly trying to imply that the bio Obama submitted to them said he was “born in Hawaii”. Yet, somehow, when Goderich was “fact checking” Obama’s birthplace for accuracy she decided to change his birthplace from Hawaii to Kenya.
This [“born in Kenya”] was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time,"

Let’s pretend literary agents’ fact check where an author says they were born. How does a “mistake” like this happen? Try and imagine it.

She did not say it was a typo. And even if she did a Hawaii to Kenya typo? No. Maybe a Hawaii to Kawaii typo.

Goderich did not say that Obama submitted his bio, which said he was “born in Hawaii”, but she arbitrarily thought it would sound cooler if it said he was “born in Kenya” so she changed it.

No, she said she fact checked Obama’s birth place and this fact checking led her to change Obama’s bio to say he was “born in Kenya”. The only way fact checking would have caused her to change a fact was if the new information she discovered was correct and what she was fact checking was wrong. So, does Goderich really want us to believe that Obama was born in Kenya? If it was factually correct from 1991 to 2007, then why did she say in 2012 that it was an error? On top of that, we are to believe that Obama never noticed that the birthplace in his bio had been changed, from Hawaii to Kenya, in spite of approving its original publication and three re-visions. Unbelievable. Obama’s bio said he was born in Kenya because he wanted it to say he was born in Kenya.

The third obfuscation. Goderich writes, “You're undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya.

Pay no attention to Obama saying he was “born in Kenya” because that bio was for circulation within the publishing industry only. Smart people will think it’s cool he was born in Kenya but “you people” were not supposed to know about it.

The fourth obfuscation. Goderick neglects to mention that this “erroneous” born in Kenya “statement” was also published on their website for 16 years and survived three revisions. Obama revised his bio, or approved of its revisal, in 1998, 2005, and 2007. 11  In fact the “born in Kenya” claim was on the Dystel & Goderich website two months after Obama announced that he would run for president.

Pathological liars don’t worry about their lies colliding. They just lie their way out of it. Or get other people to lie for them. Obama had been telling certain people that he had been born in Hawaii for years but, being born in Kenya, was the story he wanted to feed his literary agents. It had served its purpose but now he had a problem. Voters were questioning his citizenship status. It would be bad if this born in Kenya bio was discovered by the public at large. So, between April 3 and April 27, 2007, Obama changed his “born in Kenya” bio, to say that he was “born in Hawaii.” Five years later, when the original bio and the switched birthplace was discovered by Breitbart, Goderich comes out with her cover story.

Closing. How many obfuscations does it take to make you a liar? I think Miriam Goderich is way over the limit. She is lying about Barack Obama’s bio and her involvement with it.

Was Kenya the truth or simply a way for Obama to make himself look cool to uppity intellectuals who hold America in disdain? Was Hawaii the truth? Or a necessary lie in an attempt to be an eligible presidential candidate? You never know with liars. Particularly when they wield power from the White House that stops any independent means of document authentication.

Why would Dystel & Goderich lie for Barack Obama? Perhaps all the post presidency money their company could reap was more important than the truth or their integrity. 12 On the other hand they may have been threatened.

The story Goderich concocted was not a noble effort. At the very least she helped to get a psychopathic liar in to the White House for four more years and at worst she aided and abetted treason. Her partner in crime, Jane Dystel, kept her mouth shut while Goderich lied to cover-up Obama’s long-standing biographical claim that he was born in Kenya.

This was a critical piece of information that goes straight to the heart of Obama’s assertion that he was an eligible presidential candidate. Dystel & Goderich denied voters their right to make an informed decision at the ballot box. They denied Americans their legal right to challenge Obama’s citizenship status based on his own claim to having been born in Kenya.

When Breitbart exposed this biography in 2012 can you imagine how the election could have gone if Dystel and Goderich had told the truth?

Or better yet, imagine a 2007 press conference where Dystel & Goderich could have delivered this statement (they will have to pardon my amateur writing):

“In 1991 Barack Obama represented himself to us as a young author who had been born in Kenya. We took him on as a client and requested he submit a bio to us for publication. The bio he submitted said that he was born in Kenya. For sixteen years we represented him as a Kenyan born author. In 2007 Barack Obama contacted us and instructed us to change his bio to say that he was born in Hawaii. When we asked why, given the fact that he told us he was born in Kenya and had also written that he was born in Kenya, he said that was not our concern and to just do it if we didn’t want any trouble. We were aware that red flags had recently been raised about his citizenship status and eligibility to be a presidential candidate. We determined that we could not keep this information about his claim to have been born in Kenya private or hidden and that if we changed the bio to say he was born in Hawaii we would be participating in a campaign of dishonesty, deceit and perhaps election fraud……”

Dream on. We know they chose the low road. Dystel & Goderich engaged in a fraudulent misrepresentation in 2012 when they said Obama’s “born in Kenya” bio was the result of a “fact checking error”. When Obama’s bio was changed in 2007, after sixteen years, to say he was born in Hawaii and not Kenya, they altered, or allowed, a written instrument to be altered, on their website, with the intent to deceive.

Someday Miriam Goderich and Jane Dystel will be in a courtroom, sworn under oath and forced to tell the truth about the bio Barack Obama submitted to them or perjure themselves.

Let’s get this fact straight right off. The standard practice is that authors write their own bios and they submit said bio to their literary agent, editor or publisher. Acton, in an effort to cover-up Obama’s Kenya bio, told Breitbart the opposite, that most authors do not write their bio but they do approve of the final copy. This is in direct contradiction with the industry standard and with Dystel & Goderich.
Look on the Dystel & Goderich website where they instruct would be authors to include a biography when they submit a query letter or book proposal to them. Specifically, they say, if it’s a non-fiction book proposal, like the one Obama submitted, the bio they write should take a more “narrative” approach. I repeat, authors as a standard rule, write their own bio. But, to appease obots, let’s say Obama was too lazy to physically write his own bio (he’s barely worked a day in his life) or he was too stupid to write it (have you heard him speak without a teleprompter?) or he was just too important to write it (he is a narcissist after all) he still had to communicate the details of his bio to his agent and he would have had to sign off on the final product. So, either way, if Obama wrote it or if his agent wrote it based on information he supplied her, Obama’s bio said he was born in Kenya because Obama wanted it to say he was born in Kenya because he was claiming that he was born in Kenya.

Of course, in hindsight, everything Obama said about himself should have been fact checked. But, until you know you are dealing with a pathological liar, you would not fact check what an author writes about himself in his bio. And, it turns out, that Kenya may be closer to the truth than Hawaii.

11
Breitbart did a fantastic job of peeling back this lie. In 1991 Barack Obama’s literary agent, Dystel & Goderich (formerly Acton & Dystel), published a catalogue of the authors they represented. Barack Obama was listed as one of them. The short bio that accompanied Obama’s head shot said that he was “born in Kenya ….raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”


Author Steve Bowman, who was involved with the same literary agent in the mid 90’s, says that he was instructed by the Dystel & Goderich agent to write his own narrative bio and to write it in the third person. And of course that makes sense.

So in 1991 Obama writes his own bio for his literary agent and says that he was “born in Kenya…raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” Screen shots in 1998, 2005 and 2007 show that Obama’s biography was updated, edited, on the Dystel & Goderich website without changing the “born in Kenya” claim. The first time it was edited to include the title of his latest book, “Dreams From My Father” and to add that he was also raised in Chicago. (1998 screen catch) The second time it was updated to say that he was now a “junior Democratic senator from Illinois” and that he was the “dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention”. (February 2005 screen catch) The third time it was updated with a modified text change but no new or changed information was added. (April 2007 screen catch)


Through every single edit over a period of 16 years, the “born in Kenya” was left intact every time. In fact, on April 3, 2007, two months after announcing that he would run for president , the “born in Kenya” was still in Obama’s bio on the Dystel & Goderich website.

Between April 3 and April 21, 2007 someone in Obama’s campaign, David Axelrod? Valerie Jarrett? or Obama himself, realized that being “born in Kenya” did not serve his desire to be President of the United States of America like it served his desire to be an exotic, foreign born author. So Obama’s bio, on the Dystel & Goderich website, was edited for the fourth time to say that he was, “born in Hawaii”.

You can find copies of the original Dystel & Goderich catalogue and caches of the website at Breitbart. Read more at http://www.birtherreport.com/2014/11/yeah-thats-ticket-see-big-obama-lies-we.html

THE DONALD TRUMP PHENOMENON

WH

THE DONALD TRUMP PHENOMENON

By Attorney Jonathan Emord
July 31, 2015
Contrary to the conventional wisdom, the meteoric rise of Donald Trump in the polls is a bellwether for Republican glad tidings on election day. While it is too early to predict the outcome of the primaries, let alone the general election, the popularity of Trump reveals a lot about American sentiment, and that sentiment is anything but a ringing endorsement for a “third” Obama term, contrary to Obama’s self-congratulatory and hedonistic statement that he could win a third election if constitutionally permitted to run. Ironically, the presidential term limit is among the few constitutional provisions that Obama seems willing to respect rather than violate.
Donald Trump enjoys widespread name recognition but is also the subject of tremendous ridicule from Republican opponents and the media. Trump is brash, vituperative, and condescending. He often attacks the person of his political opponents and media critics equally with the content of their criticisms. He does not profess a deep intellectual understanding of the Constitution, American history, or international politics, but he does epitomize (or perhaps the better word is characterize) a rugged individualism, an unabashed Yankee spirit that there is nothing beyond his reach. He is the antithesis of the Obama theme of an America in decline.
Given his pugnacious nature, why then does he appeal to so many? The answer may well be in part that he is unafraid and directly critical in an age of professional handlers, political spin, and circumspection to avoid offense. In short, he is a bull in a China closet and that appeals to those totally disaffected with American politics as usual and with the politically correct environment that imbues politics.
Moreover, he is appears to be an outsider. Although in fact an insider with well-groomed ties to powerful Republican and Democratic incumbents alike, his verbal bomb throwing makes him unpredictable, frequently at odds with those with whom he previously broke bread and financially supports.
Media pundits, particularly those of a liberal turn, delight in Trump’s rise, thinking it indicative of an internecine conflict within Republican ranks that will weaken overall Republican chances of defeating Hillary in the general election. That, I think, a misreading predicated on a superficial understanding of the Trump phenomenon.
Trump’s rise is in large measure a reflection of public disgust with all things Washington. It is a strong endorsement of challenge to the status quo. It is a rejection of Obama, a rejection of the “Washington establishment,” a demand for action to throw the rascals out, indeed a desperate demand for that action. Trump supporters are fed up with big government, with corrupt government, with dysfunctional government, and with politics as usual. They want a bold America that defends its interests around the world, a robust free market disentangled from suffocating government regulation, and a restoration of limits on government power and America’s primacy in the world as a superpower to be respected for its defense of liberty at home and abroad. They are willing to cast their lot in favor of a man who is unpredictable precisely because predictable politics in America has become ineffectual politics, the politics of a nation in decline rather than in ascendancy. They want to shake things up and bring back the days of American economic and military primacy.
Those sentiments are not indicative of a party in disarray, they are indicative of a force that means to remove from Washington the President, his party, and those who would continue its horrendous legacy, like Hillary Clinton. In short, the Trump phenomenon is not indicative of a Republican party falling apart but of a popular will to throw out the incumbents and, most particularly, the President and his party.
I predict that those who presently endorse Trump will peel away from him following the debates as they become more aware of each candidates personality and positions. They are anxious to endorse that candidate who can best defeat Washington incumbents, eliminate corruption, and reduce the size and scope of the federal government. Those strains of sentiment and opinion were best communicated by Ronald Reagan, whose bright ideological image remains the star that reflects the hearts and minds of a large number of Americans.
Republican candidates for president and members of Congress should take heed: the Trump phenomenon reveals that Americans are demanding sincerity and action. To avoid being skewered by an angry electorate and losing the chance to become President and to capture those now endorsing Trump, candidates have to drop pretense and political correctness and state directly and in detail how they will restore the American republic.
The message coming through loud and clear from Trump supporters is that they are at their wits end and that the time has arrived for action over indecision and precise and far reaching and impactful alternatives over calculated double speak, hesitancy and weakness. To meet the American crisis, Americans, particularly Trump supporters, are demanding an end to the politics of avoidance and dysfunctionality in favor of immediate action to take down what is and restore what was, a plan to liberate the private sector from regulatory constraint, eliminate government agencies that supplant consumer choice with political fiat, and restore a vibrant and free economy and constitutional limits on government and the President.
Those who get that message and translate it into a fervent commitment to take needed action will rise, while those who are transparently hedonistic, who love themselves more than the nation and who seek the presidency as if it were a nice addition to their resumes are destined for defeat. The nation is fed-up with our “selfie” President and with his politics of American decline and destruction. The Trump phenomenon resonates strongly with politically disaffected Americans. They like him because he did build that (in contrast to the President’s absurd remark that captains of industry are not actually responsible for their own market innovations). They like him because he attacks everything that is and calls for the greatness that America was. They like him because he is strong, while Obama is weak. They like him because they seem him not only capable of building skyscrapers but also capable of condemning Putin, the Iranian leadership, illegal aliens, and terrorists.

FTF: Update for STEM, Workforce, and the HEA, Part One

mountainsmole
Warriors against the CCSS Machine. We know that Machine includes STEM, Career Tech Education, and Workforce. , it’s been very well researched and documented. We’ve seen the train wreck Congress made out of the Student Success Act, the Every Child Achieves Act. We won’t have to wait much longer to see what is revealed when the re-authorized version of the Higher Education Act appears. Today, it’s a quick review of where the bill is and then an update of what we can prepare for.
Remember, the BEST warrior is a PRO-ACTIVE warrior.
Review:
1) The HEA (Higher Education Act) was created roughly the same time as the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Act); 1965.
2) Ted Mitchell, from the U.S. Dept. of Education has been quietly working on helping re-vamp the HEA while Sen. Alexander has been much more vocal in re-vamping ALL education to align with the CCSS Machine. How do I know this? See: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/06/10/wybi-sen-alexander-the-hea-and-next-america/ (*Note: In this article I began to reveal not only the ‘master plan’ for Higher Ed, but some of the pro CCSS supportive companies and organizations promoting the Alexander/Mitchell scheme)
3) In case you missed Part 2 of the Alexander/Mitchell articles, see: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/06/11/tech-thursday-more-alexander-hea-and-the-next-america/ (*Note: In this one, you’ll be able to see how maneuvering the Senator from Tennessee has been, the reports and studies created by pro CCSS educational groups or non-profits which are being used to help write a CCSS/CTE/Workforce aligned piece of legislation)
4) All of the rewritten, reauthorized education acts have a united purpose: WIOA
See this excerpt from my June 2015 article titled, “Halting a CCSS/CTE Aligned Workforce?”:“To the Warriors against the ‘Core’, we’ve learned over and over that the CCSS Machine has many parts to it. Those parts include Career Clusters, Career Pathways, the American Apprenticeship Initiative, Career and Technical Education, and the  Common  Core Standards (which encompass every subject, including the Arts and PE).

One of the biggest parts of the Machine? That would be the amount of legislation expressly written to protect the embedding of all this illegally based education reform!
To date one of the most important pieces of this type of legislation is the (already passed as  a law in 2014 on the federal level) WIOA. Also known as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.”
Updates:
Where is the new version of the HEA, now? We’ll get to that it a bit.
1) Let’s see what related moves have been made. Why? Think back to the amendments offered to be attached to the mammoth Every Child Achieves Act. Much of the plan behind those amendments was to add in key pieces of language created to meet specific goals, or, in the case of the public/private partnered CCSS Machine, the agenda. When the newer version of the HEA is presented, don’t think similar tactics won’t be used. They absolutely will. How do I know?
See this excerpt from May 2015, “In a joint statement released on May 21, Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA) announced the formation of bipartisan working groups tasked with addressing four key areas within the Higher Education Act (HEA) reauthorization. The four working groups, composed of HELP committee staff from both parties, will focus on issues of accountability, accreditation, college affordability and financial aid, and campus sexual assault. Though committee staff will lead the meetings, all Senate HELP Committee members will be invited to attend. Senators Alexander and Murray noted they look forward to the bipartisan collaboration in the weeks to come as the reauthorization process continues to progress. A draft HEA bill is expected this fall.” (Source: http://www.natlawreview.com/article/senate-help-committee-forms-bipartisan-higher-education-act-reauthorization-working-)
Remember all the ‘bipartisanship’ used in HR5 and S1177? Refer back to ‘confessional’, if you will, by Sens. Alexander/Murray where the pro CCSS groups helping create the legislation were thanked publicly! (*Note, if you didn’t know it, when a legislator publicly thanks a person, group, or business, it is because they were extremely involved and partly responsible for the success of the legislation passing!)
2) “America Competes”, both the U.S. House and Senate have bills with this name (HR1806, the Republican version/HR 1898, the Democratic version/S1398, supported by both parties)
2a) HR1806:
This version has passed the House, already has 4 amendments and 11 related bills! Here’s an excerpt from Section 115 you have to read, It is the sense of Congress that(1) in order to bolster the STEM workforce pipeline, many industry sectors are becoming involved in K–12 initiatives and supporting undergraduate and graduate work in STEM subject areas and fields,(2) partnerships with education providers, STEM focused competitions, and other opportunities have become important aspects of private sector efforts to strengthen the STEM workforce;(3) understanding the work that private sector organizations are undertaking in STEM fields should inform the Federal Government’s role in STEM education; and(4) successful private sector STEM initiatives, as reflected by measurements of relevant outcomes, should be encouraged and supported by the Foundation.” (*Note “Foundation” refers to the National Science Foundation)

Think a STEM pipeline workforce doesn’t sound like a bad thing for America? Consider that many public/private partnerships are ALREADY in place and working well in bringing about the CCSS Machine’s master plan of an aligned workforce (See: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/tech-thursday-p-tech-its-here-its-now-and-its-part-of-the-p3-ccss-machine/https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/fom-a-new-ccs-coalition-for-community-schools/https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/ftf-ccss-pearsonites-at-your-higher-ed-campuses-now/) Each of these will lay out for you how STEM, the Workforce, and others have already begun to reinvent elementary and secondary education to align with post-secondary education.

2b) HR1898:
This version passed before the Memorial Day holiday and gives the National Science Foundation (NSF),  the U.S. Dept. of Energy, and other related groups MORE funding. Why? To step up STEM, especially where energy is concerned. Now, that may sound like no big deal, however, consider what many of those of us who oppose CCSS, CTE have discovered about not only STEM, but the NSF’s ties to the CCSS Machine. One of my very first articles gave you the document where it was stated STEM would be THE goal and that Common Core was to be the means to achieve that goal. Since then, I’ve given you more information about NSF. NSF has been tied to CCSS in so many ways, it should be criminal. (See: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/02/18/wybiupclosewithnsf/ )
To read the short summary statement of the HR1898’s text it plainly states the purpose is to improve America’s competitiveness AND other purposes. Sections 201-205 spell out the STEM, STEaM, and Workforce agenda. (STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; STEaM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math). Want to see how STEM, STEaM, Workforce, CCSS, and CTE intersect? Refer to my 3 part series: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/05/27/wybi-stem-to-steam-ties-to-common-core-pt-1/; https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/05/28/tech-thursday-pt-2-stem-to-steams-ties-to-common-core/; https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/05/29/friday-special-post-part-3-stem-to-steam-ties-to-ccss/

On Thursday, we’ll look at the Senate’s version of “America Competes” as well as tie in Career Tech Education, HEA, and more.
Finally, where’s the HEA now? It’s not in any one bill yet; rather there are several HEA re-authorization bills in Congress. You can find this when you access the link from Congress. However, don’t assume this link contains the only ones on the table. There are others related to them, or others with different names. Ones we need to watch will contain many of the CCSS Machine buzzwords like ‘outcome based education’, ‘reform’, ‘opportunity’, etc. Also, consider what committees these bills are coming from and are currently in. If you see ‘workforce’, that’s a big clue to what we can expect. See the screen shot to enter the exact phrase to narrow done the search:

Lastly, remember this screen shot? It was during the hype just before HR5 passed:

COMMON CORE: Tech Thursday: Part Two of the HEA, STEM, the Workforce, and America

As the push for the re-authorization of the HEA heats up, more evidence has surfaced showing how post-secondary education is an ideal set-up for more than meets the eye.

Last we were ‘together’, anti CCSS Warriors, I was sharing with you how the Higher Education Act (of 1965) is set for a re-authorization sometime very soon. We were able to connect the dots between the purposed alignment between the pre-K to 12th grade and post-secondary levels of education. In the last article, you saw how the current members in the U.S. House of Representatives have put together many bills related to re-vamping higher education. As I closed Tuesday’s article I promised you we’d look at the S1398 (Senate’s version of the “America Competes” Act), how we would tie it to not only STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), but to CTE (Career and Technical Education)as well. CTE is the ‘adult version’ of the pre-K through 12th grade CCSS. (I’ve shared with you repeatedly exactly how this is documented.)
Today’s article will prove to be a distinct eye-opener. So much so, I’m even shaking my head in just how interconnected the American reform is proving to be. Warriors, we’ve known the real agenda behind the education reform is the trained workforce. We’ve seen how the 2014 passage of the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) has embedded CTE (written in via one of its other names, Career Pathways) and is woven into the legislation at least 21 times, per a high ranking U.S. Dept. of Labor spokesman.
In the event you haven’t had the opportunity to read Tuesday’s article, or you’d like both of these articles together: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/07/28/ftf-update-for-stem-workforce-and-the-hea-part-one/
Part One gave you vital information as to just HOW the WIOA and HEA are united via the CCSS Machine. A machine which includes those in public office as well in private business.


So just what is “America Competes”? It’s designed to involve America’s energy competitiveness in the global scheme, the ‘need’ for 21st Century technology (which includes energy efficiency, climate control, and other related activities here in America) AND education that’s aligned with Pre-K through 12th grade CCS Standards. As we know, CCSS can also mean ‘college and career ready standards’, ‘essential standards’, ‘career pathways’, ‘career clusters’, and on and on the names go. (*Note: While I’ve not studied any of the ‘AC’ legislative bills in-depth, it does appear that the U.S. Dept. of Energy, along with the NSF {National Science Foundation; another federal level government entity}, get to influence the U.S. Dept. of Education in HOW to align courses, scholarships, etc. to fit all of the above into “America Competes”!  How will this be BEST accomplished? STEM and its related programs. This will include the STEaM, Common Core, Next Generation Science and MORE!)
All this “American competitiveness” is to be completed in the name of scientific research.
S1398, “America Competes”: 
As I shared on Tuesday, both the Democrats and the Republicans of the Senate like this bill. (The House has 2 versions, one which the sitting Republicans like, one the sitting Democrats like)
Here are some facts about S1398, you, the anti CCSS Warrior need the most:
a) the sponsor of the bill? Sen. Lamar Alexander (as is one of the chief people in rewriting the ESEA, and the HEA)
b) it was introduced in May 2015
c) it has many co-sponsors from both main political parties, every one of whom voted ‘yes’ to the ‘Every Child Achieves’ Act, also headed up by Sen. Alexander (Sen. Murray was also heading up the ECAA ‘charge’)
d) it is classified as an ‘energy’ bill, not an ‘education’ bill
e) while much shorter than its counter part bills in the House, it does involve ‘talent expansion’ programs, lots of taxpayer money, certain data NOT being made available to the public, “National Laboratories”, public-private partnerships being encouraged and incentive driven, removing duplicate authority in the “Science Enhancement Education” realm within the U.S. Dept. of Energy (question is, who gets to the be ONE authority?), protecting the PACE graduate program, giving ‘early career awards’, rewarding schools which drive up the attendance and graduation rates, and merit pay based peer reviews. (Does any of this sound anything remotely like what we’ve seen the primary and secondary educational reform? Of course it does! It’s MORE CCSS Machine rhetoric) While much shorter at the moment, remember the bill could grow by leaps and bounds when all is said and done.

The U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Angle for Higher Education:
Before we get too far into just HOW aligned to CCSS/STEM/CTE the Dept. of Energy is, see this screen shot:

As we've discovered, where you see "Workforce" or "STEM", you know Common Core or Career and Technical Education is there as well.
As we’ve discovered, where you see “Workforce” or “STEM”, you know Common Core or Career and Technical Education is there as well.
It appears, from what I can find, that the U.S. Dept. of Energy is really throwing its educational influence towards the Workforce in the “Smart Grid” sector. One such example comes from the MS Gulf Coast Community College. See: Mississippi-Gulf-Coast-CC-Workforce-Development-Electric-Power-Sector
Now, if you’ve followed my blog for very long, you know how I’ve given you proof of how the community colleges across the nation have aligned themselves to the CCSS Machine. From the CCSS derived ‘Adult Standards’ to the CTE courses, hybrid classes (meaning on-line and in-person), and, beyond.

Below, is another example of the Workforce ‘chunks’ your student (or maybe even yourself) can find as an educational choice.
You'll find other energy career ladders, paths, clusters, and internships or apprentices at almost every community college, trade school, or high end university.

What you’ll find is more about the energy stance, the economy, or other items than you ever will about the academic nature of the student achieving a “Smart Grid” workforce degree. Why? Because, as we’ve seen time and time again, in all things related to the CCSS Machine, academics as we’ve known them, take a backseat to service. As you might notice, the above gives you a birds-eye view of how the U.S. Dept. of Energy has been able to influence the Workforce angle of education.


The White House Chimes In:
Back in 2010, the “America Competes” Act helped create “CoSTEM”. The purpose? According to the White House’s website, it was to co-ordinate the federal level activities in STEM education. (*Note: Does anyone recognize that ‘federal level activities’ violates the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?!)
One of the co-chairs to CoSTEM is from the NSF (National Science Foundation). I’ve given you plenty of evidence how the NSF has been party to aligning our education, but a great reminder as to HOW is found below.
Members of federal level offices working together to see that STEM/CCS/CTE/Workforce survive and thrive?

  • Department of Agriculture
  • Department of Commerce
  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Education
  • Department of Energy
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Department of Interior
  • Department of Transportation
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration

The NSF and the CCSS Machine, ‘Bedded Partners’ for any Education Level: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2014/10/12/rmt-sunday-ccss-snake-oil-of-our-time/

Closing:
I truly hope you’ve been able to see my point in sharing what I have to complete the look at just how toxic the revamping of any educational choice is when put through the CCSS Machine’s cycle for America. If you’ve not, I’ll try to summarize below.
1) Any educational re-authorization currently on the table which impacts pre-K through grad school is seemingly under one man’s domain: Sen. Lamar Alexander.
2) The public-private partnership which makes up the CCSS Machine is impacting education from a birth to grave aspect. This will include not only our pre-K through grad school choices, but also our entire communities. Is this really what’s best for America?
3) That by ensuring every federal law possible that can influence an alignment to the Workforce agenda can happen, we see our human lives are less considered than the economy. How did I arrive at this point? Simple, look at the CCSS Machine agenda, it’s more about economy than personality.
4) Finally, by allowing a CCSS/CTE aligned Higher Education bill to pass, we see the cement ‘bridge’ completed from the earliest of American lives to the oldest completed.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s not a cement bridge, but, a cement block. The CCSS Machine wants you to envision a bridge to cross over when in reality it’s a cement block tied to your ankle to drag you down…and remember..it’s all in the name of ‘education’.
cementblock
My student is MORE than a block, or an apple..my student is
a human!
