Gerald Molen, Dinesh D’Souza: The Death of a Nation – A film all Americans must see

President Trump compares Democrat Platform to the Nazi Party Platform.

This weekend, you must see this film.  Both Donald Trump Jr. and President Trump are speaking out about the false narrative the American public has been given since the turn of the 20th Century.  They were part of the premiere of Dinesh D’Souza’s film The Death of a Nation, which opened in over 1,000 theaters nationally last weekend.  They are both declaring, as does the film, that the Democratic Party platform is similar to the Nazi Party Platform.

Progressives are coming unglued, completely unraveling, and carrying on a huge, global tantrum.  Big Billionaire Bullies accustomed to controlling the narrative through Hollywood, media and education, are so terrified, they are forcing the shut down of voices with whom they do not agree.

Their false narrative, which we often call FAKE news, has never been challenged with such success as President Trump has had.  These progressives have gotten away with twisting the narrative since the Democrat party began its scheme to control population through eugenics, and supporting the KKK, separatism, racism and slavery in an “American Plantation” and since they became so enchanted with fascism during the Woodrow Wilson and FDR presidencies.

Yes, I said that correctly: the Democrat Party.   You thought these were “far right extremist” ideas?  I have been writing about this false history for several decades:  fascism, Nazism, slavery, and racial bigotry are not “far right” ideologies.  These are “far left,” progressive, centralized, top down government ideas, and it’s beyond time to set this record straight.

Here is the 25 point plan from the Nazi platform.  You will recognize many similarities to Democrat policies today:  nationalized control of enterprise, education, health care, and guaranteed labor for all.  It’s remarkable.  However, if you search on the Internet, you will get several pages of FAKE headlines, as if the President had just invented it.

This is D’Souza’s fourth documentary, and perhaps the best in content, editing and overall production quality.  It is packed with action, suspense and excellent talent.   Every American, young and old, must see this film before it leaves these theaters.

D’Souza’s other other three films were:

2016: Obama’s America (2012)

America: Imagine the World Without Her? (2014)

Hillary’s America (2016)

The Death of a Nation (2018)

These documentaries act as a series of historical corrections to the revisionist history that has caused the divide in narratives we hear when changing the channels from Fox News to CNN. Our children, friends and neighbors need to know the truth, because the progressive public schools and media own the hearts and minds of our present and future generations that will determine the destiny of this nation.

In 2003 America’s Freedom Festival at Provo Utah honored Academy award winning film producer Jerry Molen with its Freedom Award for his 1993 epic film Schindler’s List for which he received the Oscar for best picture.  Prior to that was the Oscar for Jurassic Park, Hook, Days of Thunder and Minority Report.  He also received awards for The Other Side of Heaven, The Color Purple, and for playing the character Dr. Bruner in Rain Man.

At that 2003 Freedom Festival event, Gerald Molen’s co-producer Branko Lustig was also honored. Lustig survived more than two years in Nazi concentration camps. Following the war, Lustig began a career as an assistant director at Jadran Films, Croatia’s largest film and television studio.

Also honored that evening were Helmuth Huebener, Rudi Wobbe (posthumously) and the remaining survivor of the trio who was present to accept the award, Karl-Heinz Schnibbe.  These three young men were Mormon teenagers who were among other youth leading a resistance throughout Hamburg, Germany, during World War II. They were arrested and convicted.

They had listened to British broadcasts and realized the narrative was completely different from the narrative the state-controlled media was feeding them.  Parallels today?  Absolutely. 

In this extremely politically-incorrect environment, they distributed literature throughout Hamburg, pinning them on bulletin boards, inserting them into letterboxes, and stuffing them in coat pockets.  A similar scene appears in Death of a Nation, depicting a modern day Joan of Arc, eventually killed in a gruesome way (no spoiler alert) for exposing the evil of the Nazi/Hitler regime.  

No doubt Molen was deeply affected as producer of Schindler’s List.  His association with Dinesh D’Souza, who has authored heavily researched books as the backdrop for the screenplays, is an extension of his final impact on Hollywood: exposing them for the media lies and the FAKE news they have perpetrated.  A brave man.

But at his age, Molen has made his fortune in Hollywood, and he is living out his days to leave behind the greatest legacy of all.  These four documentaries prove that Hollywood, the progressive media it feeds, along with the Democrat Party it supports, is the source of contemporary progressivism, fascism and socialism in America.

This week I spent an entire show playing fair use short audio clips from the film to give the audience a glimpse at the Big Lie progressives have perpetrated on Americans since the turn of the 20th Century.  You will not, nor will your children or grandchildren, be taught any of this in school.  In fact they will be taught precisely the opposite.  Now America has a President who knows this, and he has just begun to speak out.  Brace yourselves.

I sent an email to my list yesterday.  While many responded with positive comments, the hate-filled progressives gave me a piece of their minds, always with profanity and rudeness.

They typically can’t tolerate my views, and so they go out with a big noise – “Remove me from your list!”  More proof that the socialists inside and outside the Republican Party have a zero based tolerance level for free speech.  Very dangerous.

Seldom are there enough hours in the day to respond, but occasionally I make time and I sincerely thank them and welcome them to the dialogue.  Sometimes, the tone changes when they discover that I’ve actually responded with decorum.

Unless you are paying attention, you may not be aware that this nation is at a critical crossroads.  It is on the brink of either turning this ship around or giving in to the Big Billionaire Bullies of High Tech Silicon Valley.  They may have the money to fund the media and to buy the publishers and set the curriculum and tests, but there are more of us than them, and the People – if they are grounded in correct principles of Liberty – will prevail.

It is with this ernest plea that I ask you and your friends, neighbors, associates and loved ones buy your tickets to see The Death of a Nation.  If you don’t agree with what I’ve written here, I urge you to do it anyway.  At least show that in your progressive open-mindedness and your intellectual superiority to the less brilliant and bigoted conservatives, that you are truly open-minded and not really the narrow-minded bigot you so freely call us.

Recently I read a post on a social network that named Republican leaders by name and after each name was the label “Crazy” or “Sane.”  I was fascinated because the person posting is an individual that displays a dangerous and extreme personality disorder.  (They sometimes show up in politics – as an outlet to express their anger.)

What is it that the psychology academy calls those that criticize others for doing what they themselves do?  You know, we say “The pot’s calling the kettle black.”  The Talmud says: “Do not taunt your neighbor with the blemish you yourself have.”

Yes, there is a description for this form of communication, especially in times of personal or political crisis:  Progressives in the Ivory Towers of Academia and in the media (CNN, MSNBC, CBS, Huff Post, Daily Beast, etc) YOU are engaging in transference.  YOU are projecting.  In psychology, these behaviors are seen most commonly in the psychotic and neurotic, and also in the narcissist and borderline personality.

This film exposes person by person, key world leaders who became tyrants and dictators who displayed this mental illness.  After you leave the movie theater you will understand that much of the evil that has been forced on humanity actually does come from those who have lost all human feeling or compassion for others, and in their need to control and have power over others, these insane have been running this asylum.

The alarming take away from The Death of a Nation is that history is repeating itself. This nation, once founded on enduring principles of liberty, has been sabotaged by a collective mental illness in mainstream media, public schools and in government.  Conservatives and nationalists are reaching the masses through social media.  Now the insane that control those alternative media sources are, of course, silencing the truth.  The billionaires that influence high tech communications – Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and George Soros, among others, are scrambling to be the first to shut voices of truth out.  We should be grateful that we have a President who is sane. Ironically, true to the stereotype, it’s the crazies calling the president the crazy one (projecting, again) when he’s simply a marketing genius. Are we surprised he has been so successful in his businesses?

It’s our turn to take a page out of Trump’s playbook.  Don’t be intimidated.  If you are part of fake news, don’t stay silent.  Double down.  These Big Billionaire Bullies will scatter like cockroaches when you do.  As I say at the end of every show – Keep both feet on the ground.  Stand for truth … and Carry On.

A Back to School Warning to Parents

Looking for solutions? Here is a list of do’s and don’ts and especially some warnings. It comes from years of experience as a mother who tried every possible form of education to fit my individual children’s unique needs. Regardless of the state in which you live, the challenges are nationally driven and similar. Watch for your state’s local home school conferences. There’s one happening in Utah that locals will not want to miss – this weekend – even if you don’t home school. It’s amazing!

It’s that time of year again. It’s back to school. Many parents and children alike are excited about a new year, a new teacher, or perhaps even a new school. Many will be looking over the forms and policies, the class procedures and making decisions for their children during the first few days of school.

WARNING. ALERT. Read on….

I remember that almost Christmas Eve-like anticipation as a child. I also remember it as a parent. New clothes, new friends. The world begins anew in August and September and centers around that school calendar until the next May or June.

After raising five children and after a few years into the public school system, it wasn’t such a rosy picture. After a few encounters and disappointments, I began to investigate. Something was wrong here.

My decades of research have brought me to a place where I can confidently say that public school is dangerous to both your and your child’s health. It needs to carry the same disclaimer as a cigarette pack.

That sounds dramatic, right?

charlotteHere’s the bottom line: The public school is a federal welfare program that has been failing for decades, and according my dear, long-time friend Charlotte Iserbyt, Reagan’s Senior Policy Advisor from the US Department of Education, it has been a deliberate act of negligence. She was the whistle blower. She is the source of much of what follows. We are all indebted to her.

You can follow her blogs here.

This outrageous assertion actually makes sense if you think about it, because if a socialist society is the goal of the education community (which it is), it needs a compliant, passive and dumbed down citizenry. And it must have its fingers in every pie, managing and controlling from the top down, making us believe it’s bottom up – through the community council and tracking from the bottom up.

Welcome to the New American School.

Charlotte found documents in her Department of Education files (of which I also have copies) of policies and programs at the federal level that were enacted to do just that – to dumb down. They first targeted the minorities in Chicago with a reading program that failed the majority of the students. Learning to read and to discipline the brain by memorization of facts and drilling of calculations, time against accuracy, was banned long ago and replaced with a new social agenda – today called “social justice.”

This was not a partisan decision in Congress. Both parties have worked together, astonishingly with Republicans leading the charge. Watch these two short videos, one from 1989 – a Republican Secretary of Education – a Republican, and one from the current Secretary of Education – a Democrat.

Listen briefly to both of them. Shock and awe here…

This is 1989, Lamar Alexander (today’s chairman of the Senate Education Committee!)

This is our current Sec. of Ed. Arne Duncan (a marxist):

Lamar Alexanders Community Ed Bill
Right now the community ed bill S 1787 is set to bring this model to every state, including Utah – under Lamar Alexander’s leadership in the US Senate. (Early Childhood Ed is key to all of it.)

But if you think this is all great stuff, you, my friend, even though you think you are a conservative Republican and you LOVE LOVE LOVE charter schools (government welfare subsidzied private schools without accountability to local taxpayers – loss of representative republican form of government) – are a marxist. A socialist. A communist at heart. (I warned you this content was hard core.)

As the government-funded school became more controlled from the top down (state or federal), more testing, accounting and tracking became necessary. But it was not the testing of academic (cognitive) learning. It was the testing of attitudes and values (affective), very subtly integrated into a multi-disciplinary curriculum in classrooms that functioned around affirmative action and reverse discrimination policies. That began under Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society – with the first national attitudes test, the NAEP.

Fast forward to the education agreements between the US and the USSR in the mid-1980s which clinched it – under Reagan, the US agreed to adopt the Soviet system. This is not a joke. One could legitimately say that the bureaucracy in DC is so huge, that Reagan completely delegated all policies to his cabinet, and perhaps he truly thought that the US-USSR education exchange would turn out that the US would be informing the USSR. Alas, the opposite happened.

Utah’s testing director Don Thomas even invited me to go to the USSR with him to observe how well it was done. I should have taken him up on his offer.

Using operant conditioning, another hallmark of soviet psychology to control the people and developed by B.F. Skinner, is now implemented through computer adaptive testing. Today’s classroom has become the propaganda tool for turning the student against the parochial views of their parents as well as training them to be good little communists all through tests that alter until the right answers are given. Attitudinal and valuse answers. Whose attitudes and values? That is the question.

In the 1990s, I attended teacher training in Utah’s Granite School District, where it all began under soviet-loving Don Thomas. I was taught that in the classroom, there are just too many Indian chiefs and not enough Indians. (And I naively thought I sent my children to school to become tomorrow’s leaders. Not so.) Cooperative, group learning. The group was IN. The individual was OUT. You must have that mentality in a socialist society. This is the school district where it all began.

The classroom under today’s title – “common core” – has become a manipulative cess pool of redistribution of the brain. We must lower the basketball standard so that all can shoot the basket. Standards drive the curriculum and the tests.

What does STEM have to do with it?

In the public school setting, the Judeo-Christian God is OUT and STEM is in.

It’s all about science, technology, engineering and math in a completely godless vacuum. All knowledge is scrutinized through the secular humanist microscope.

(“But my child’s teacher is Christian, or Mormon, etc.” you say. What difference does it make when that teacher is teaching a mandated secular humanist perspective? Good luck with that, after 13 years of prime time in that environment, and especially when the teacher becomes superior to YOUR credibility as parent.) Many of the good teachers are leaving this system, and I don’t blame them.

These are all highlights and hallmarks of a soviet education.

So Let’s Meet the Soviets
In 1970, I had the opportunity to visit with Soviet students at the Expo 70 World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan while touring with the Department of Defense. I asked if they believed in God. The response was chilling: “Yes – WE are god – it’s within, it’s our intellect, it’s science. If it cannot be scientifically proved, it is not so.”

The Soviets were geniuses at “STEM” before it was even called STEM. They tracked the student from the school to the workforce with a strong emphasis on these fields of study. STEM was first introduced as a package in 2011 at the UN. I was there in the negotiating rooms. Within two years, it was in Utah with every good Republican implementing it through legislative policy. The agenda behind STEM was overlaid with a socialist bias – whether gender equality or environmental activism, that was the goal of STEM.

Bless the PTA moms’ hearts, they adore it and don’t even know what they adore. What wonderful marxist cheerleaders they have become. You name it, like lemmings, they are on it and willing to follow off the cliff.

Utah and Soviet Workforce Training
In the early 1990s, School-to-Work programs began to be implemented. In Utah, the Republican legislature and the education committee along with the majority of the Utah Senate and House, has implemented the entire socialist-soviet workforce training program. No wonder – it began in Utah. Sadly, they would not recognize soviet education if they saw it. They all say they are “conservatives.” This is so frustrating as an informed researcher that observes the ineptness of the majority of legislators. But then, most were educated in the very socialist system they now support. How would we expect them to know the difference?

Although anti-communists were demonized during the post-world war years, today’s average American would not recognize communism or even socialism if it were right in front of them (which it is). The proof is that most Americans are now practicing socialists. In fact, most embrace the very policies that were the hallmark of the soviet system that controlled the workforce.

We have elected these uninformed, naive legislators who continue to build out the community education policies of the soviet union. They couple those programs with the other hallmark of soviet education – the contract school, which feature no elected boards and a polytechnic approach. So one school focused on math and science, another the arts, and so on.

My former soviet friends, Olympic athletes, were tracked from early childhood ed at age 3 into those athletic programs. School was 12 hours a day, six days a week. They were superior. No one could compete with them at the Olympics.

But is that what education is for? Workforce training and management?

But it all imploded. Because, as Margaret Thatcher once said, the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of others people’s money. The US is headed for an implosion, and I will do anything I can to prevent it from happening to my children and grandchildren.

It took 60 years of the Soviets silencing the churches and only allowing them to preach within the four walls of their sanctuaries, and completely banning religious speech from the school. They usurped the family’s central authority over the children (“your children do not belong to you – they belong to society” – the same mantra we hear from establishment educators running our schools) and implemented in loco parentis attitudes through education bureaucrats, before they realized they had given up liberty for security.

In the US, we now have soviet workforce training systems in place. Because Reagan loved Mormons (his lieutenant governor was John Harmer in California), he jumped at the opportunity to hire one to be his Secretary of Education – T.H Bell of Utah. What a mistake. Bell was a marxist (knowingly or unknowingly), and he is responsible for Utah becoming the pilot program for “outcome based education” the foundation of all socialist tracking and standards over which we now continue to fight.

The schools track everything today – cradle to grave, just as described in those videos. This is soviet education. The school has become the hub of the family and community, bringing all agencies together to monitor and “help” the parents. Remember Reagan’s quote: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” School officials may say they are here to help but they are actually mirroring the parent-monitoring and tattling system of the Soviet Union.

Do you really trust government to be on your side given the history of Utah’s DCFS? (Department of Child and Family Services – or similar agency in YOUR state) Are you aware of that aggressive track record of removing children from their parents at a high per capita rate compared to the rest of the nation?

Back To School Dangers – Giving Up Your Parental Rights – What to Avoid
When things don’t go well, parents often wake up and realize the rights they have given up. That happened to me years ago.

But every year when it’s Back to School, parents – especially the new ones – rush to sign their students up for their child’s SEP, SEOP, IEP or whatever student plan the counselor’s office offers.

Don’t sign on to any tracking education or occupational plan.

If they have a child with a learning disability, they rush to get that IEP or the use of federal funds under the Disability Act (IDEA).

Do not register your child in an IEP – the government will forever be tracking your student and all mental illness or disability or medications into that child’s government file. It’s none of government’s @#$% business. This is the mindset of the Chinese dossier.

Yet parents readily give social security numbers to their schools, and that is the tracking number for life. Remember, we are now a socialist nation – bringing health care and collaborative social service agencies to the hub – the public school.

Don’t share your child’s social security number with anyone except for income purposes.

Don’t allow your student to be tested with any state or federal assessment and sign an agreement that no data will be shared outside of the school.

We have discovered that the schools are tracking the personal identification thousands of criteria – attitudes and values included. Each student can be tracked and the government will know which ones need re-education if they don’t fit in. It is none of the government’s @#$% business.

Cradle to Grave Socialist Schools

Stop Early Childhood Ed in your state. And do NOT enroll your child in any early ed program.

They really do mean to track the babies from the hospitals, as Republican Lamar Alexander advocated in 1989 in that video. That’s why hospitals issue social security numbers the day the baby is born. And these government busy-bodies can’t wait to get that child into the socialist mindset as early as possible.

Now that ObamaCare is in place, the school will begin to build the health clinic and dispense health care directly from the school. The grants are in place through several sources, much of which is now in the ACA (ObamaCare). They will dispense comprehensive health care, without consent of parents (or with uninformed consent), including contraceptives and sex ed. And they will have your doctor’s support, because doctors have also been brainwashed in medical schools whose faculty has bought into socialized medicine decades ago.

And don’t get me going about the American Medical Association, complicit in all of this socialist management. They own and control the medial records and the CPT codes which reports are now under the control of the IRS.

It is for this purpose that I offer this back-to-school warning. You must hold on to your parental rights. Do not relinquish them.

In the early 1990s I helped craft and author and pass the nation’s first state level FERPA – Utah’s Family Education and Right to Privacy Act. It’s purpose was to maintain the privacy of the student with all the data exchange. Now today computer systems have made it a snap – a frightening one at that.

Who trusts government with their private information? No former soviet citizen that escaped that system. Only naive Americans would do that.

This tracking is the hallmark of a communist government system. It is here and it is now, and you are most likely embracing communism yourself as you read this and think I’m imagining dragons.

Yet a while back, in a local church congregation after the service was over, a special announcement was made that the county health department, in the name of public safety in case of disaster, wanted everyone to provide to them not just the names, addresses and phone numbers of the members of that congregation, but the entire health history, what meds were being taken and who the physician was, etc. A large plastic pill bottle was provided to put a copy of that form in the refrigerator, and the other copy went to the county health department.

Are you KIDDING me? Yet you would have been astonished at how many unknowing naive citizens rushed to the table at the back to get that form and fill it out. (I kept mine as evidence of the deception of the communist culture being built around us as we sit on our couches watching the Super Bowl.)

TAKE ACTION

So here is my additional advice:

Back to School parents, do NOT allow your student’s school – if it gets ONE penny of federal or state funding – to administer to your student any state or federal assessment test you have not previewed or that is tied to common core or to the federal funding each state is receiving.

Watch out for Sage or the AIR tests. RED FLAGS both.

Opt Out. Opt Out. Opt Out. Here is the form.

Study and get together with your neighbors and inform them.

Don’t sign up for the PTA. Do organize a PTO. Get your neighbors and do it. Nothing works like competition. Oh. But that’s such a capitalist idea. (Trust me, the PTA will be very threatened.)

Listen to our radio programming on AM 630 www.K-talk.com Monday-Friday, 10-Noon mountain time. We will keep you updated.

Your student will bring home stacks of papers asking for your signature. Read them carefully. DO NOT CONSENT to anything that you are not sure of and know that your student and your family will be tracked unless you specifically request to opt out.

Sex ed is woven throughout the curriculum. Soon in Utah, because of the recent changes to the definition of marriage, the curriculum will begin reflecting the additional endorsement of a lifestyle that most parents do not want their children to be taught.

Opt Out of any family life, maturation or sex ed program. Opt out of any suicide or drug prevention program. Stay away. These are discussions for families in the privacy of their homes.

UFERPA Nosy Questions Brochure

Present this brochure to your student’s school along with the opt out form. (Sadly, too many of you reading this will say, “But I need to be on the good side of the school in order for my child to be the teacher’s favorite.” To this I ask, who’s the parent here and how much do you love your child and your child’s future of freedom? Stand for something! If YOU don’t, who WILL and, how will YOUR CHILD?)

Read your children’s text books and homework papers. A Leftist ideology is woven throughout. It’s often imperceptible. And if you don’t know the difference, start reading and learning.

That should not be surprising. If I were the devil, as Paul Harvey wrote way back in 1965:

“…I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions — just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography — soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science.”

Paul Harvey was prophetic.

Get your child OUT of government-funded schools while you can. Home school them. That’s a tough one to swallow. But it’s the best advice I can give at this point in my life. Find good online programs. If you don’t know how to assess what’s good and what’s not, connect with the parents that do.

In Utah the LDS Home School Conference is this weekend at South Towne Expo, August 21-22. If you are LDS (and even if you aren’t) and even if you don’t home school, get to this event!!! You will find unbelievable resources and network with other parents who are seeking solutions.

Charlotte Iserbyt used to tell me this way back in 1989 when my children were all in public school, and I admit I thought it was a bit on the fringe. I suspect, you may think the same of me as well. But now I have experienced what Charlotte tried to warn me about, and now I am warning you.

It is your choice to believe what you will of my strident message and unsolicited advice. (Where is my tin foil hat, right?)

However, if you value your own liberty, I challenge you to do the research and then to show where I’m mistaken. I have been tracking these details for decades now. I have thoroughly vetted the who’s who of education curriculum and testing development. I have not found one educator involved in public education who is NOT Leftist, socialist, marxist, or communist. They are all the same – it’s about control. Education has drifted from developing the tools that will allow the student to learn for themselves to class struggle and equality and treating everyone fairly. Those educators have stated so themselves. That IS the goal.

Even the ACT and SAT has been taken over by these marxist social engineers. I have a comprehensive presentation on these facts that are indisputable.

This great equality lie is driven from the top – UNESCO, the United Nations where these marxist NGOs gather to build policy. Then they come back around to Washington DC to buy the votes to get the legislation they need.

Watch your legislature. The majority are incompetent but well-meaning individuals who will pass more and more socialist laws over education and the workforce as each year goes by. Then they will run for office as a “conservative” because they could not identify socialism or communism if they saw it. They are not fit for the office they hold.

My final word of advice: Spread the word and vote them OUT.

Blessings to all the good parents out there who want the best education for their children. Be prayerful. Your children are YOUR stewardship, no one else’s.

Common Core, the Left and Advanced Placement History

White background - long

On August 25, 2014 conservative columnist and researcher Stanley Kurtz created another slam-dunk in the cultural war in his article entitled How the College Board Politicized U.S.History.

He has appropriately branded the College Board an “unbalanced” “movement of left-leaning historians” whose goal it is to “internationalize the teaching of American history.”

Bravo! Finally our decades-long push back from policies that always originate from the United Nation’s education arm – UNESCO – is making headlines. The International Baccalaureate would have us believe that it is the preferred of the two “advanced” type courses. If I had to choose between the two, it would be the AP for budgetary reasons.

America the Movie and Dinesh D’Souza – Crisis of Leadership CPAC 2014

If you have not seen this film yet, you are missing American history as it should be told. This film should be in every school in the nation to replace the revisionist history called “social studies” that has been fueling hatred in every young heart against every thing good upon which this nation was founded.

If you believe that the pilgrims were evil because they brought disease to the Native Americans, if you believe that Columbus was an evil gold seeker, if you believe that protecting a nation’s borders is racist, and if you believe that America is destroying the planet, among other tall tales of today’s social studies that has overtaken education, this is a movie you must see.

Also, watch Dinesh D’Souza, one of the most brilliant minds of our day, as he addresses our greatest crisis: American Leadership. Where are the Washingtons, the Franklins and the Jeffersons and Adams’?

WE are the grassroots that need to take on the statesmanship of those principled leaders and WE must step up to influence the elections. We need our business leaders – we need YOU, the grassroots – to get this right and to help us build a financial base to help the right people get elected in 2016.

Help us educate our business leaders because they are typically in the pockets of the next iteration of education reform that is centralizing and removing the representative form of government we once had.

Utah Parents Protest to End NCLB Waiver

American Leadership Fund

NCLB waiver protest

On Friday, August 8, 2014, in Salt Lake City, parents staged a public protest outside the Utah State School Board offices against the renewal of the No Child Left Behind waiver. This is the waiver that has given states the “common core” standards to which all curriculum and testing nationwide is now being aligned. We urge parents in every state to stage similar protests.

Here’s a clip of the protest:

The more parents learn, the more they are fighting back. They want local control. State School Boards insist that the NCLB waiver has given states more local control. That is indefensible. Yet they don’t feel any accountability to the people that elected them and they demonstrated it by completely ignoring the thousands of parents that signed a letter asking them not to renew.  Why is that?

Because in Utah, the people don’t really elect the school board.  The Governor appoints a commission that selects choices for the governor to review, and then he chooses which two go on the ballot in a non-partisan election (Tweedledum and Tweedledee). If your state has this sort of crony election system, get rid of it!

The Board cares about one thing only:  money.  Federal money.  They are addicted, and they are lying that what they are doing is local.

Here’s visual proof that “local control” is being over-ridden, not only by the U.S. Department of Education, but that its tentacles are global.

We also have proof-positive that the very behavioral testing agency, American Institutes for Research, that Utah acquired (and that many other states are also using) is indeed a behavioral testing agency, and that the goal is not to test for academic learning so much as to use the “computer adaptive test” to test for how effectively the tests are changing student attitudes.

My colleagues nationally and I have been following this trend for years, and so while it is nothing new, the technology now matches the goals.

Parents need to ask: “Is THIS local control?” and “Whose attitudes and values are being tested?”

It’s time to end the “NCLB” waivers in every state and to begin the process to dismantle the U.S. Department of Education (a goal of Ronald Reagan) and to create state autonomy over education, as it was constitutionally intended to be.

See for yourself.  These slides are from my Three-Part presentation “Beyond Common Core”

You tell me:  Is this LOCAL control? Is the School Board telling the truth? What do YOU think?


The relationship between Utah’s testing agency “AIR” and SBAC (the consortium they told us Utah had abandoned) – from its website:

 

AIR-SBAC

 

The relationship between Utah’s testing agency and UNESCO

“Local” Control?

 

AIR-UNESCO

 

In AIR’s words, from its website.
But Utah’s State Board of Education insists AIR does not do behavioral testing.

 

AIR Behavioral

 

Some early comments on how important “computer-adaptive testing”

would be in behavior modification…



CAT-Heuston

 

These two screen shots from the AIR website show the strong LGBTQ advocacy. The Salt Lake Tribune’s liberal satirist Paul Rolly claims, however, that we are hallucinating.

 

AIR Screen shot 5 - LGBTQ advocacy

AIR Screen Shot 3 - LGBTQ advocacy


So then we must suggest that AIR’s computer adaptive testing may be

of some influence on students…

and that a computer only is as effective as the programming.

 

GIGO

 

And finally the BIG question…

Whose Attitudes

We’ve been all over the attitudinal testing for over 25 years now.  With the help of several grassroots organizations and good legislators, I was instrumental in putting into place the first state privacy law in 1994 in Utah.  From the outset, American Leadership Fund has helped Utahns Against Common Core with fundraising, and we continue to raise funds to support causes such as this to restore state sovereignty under a constitutional, republican form of government.

Please help us fight back today with a generous contribution of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more.
