Islamic Invasion Fuels Anti-Islam Backlash: US Patriots Must Mirror Euro Counterparts. Say Whaaat? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

WITHOUT going into lengthy detail about the intersecting string-pullers and motives behind the upending of Europe, suffice it to state that there are several cooperating Wizards of OZ fueling its upending.

AS is known, little happens (geo-politically) in a vacuum, least of which includes the break up of a continent and the impending destruction of the US as the leader of the free world.

ALONG these lines, most importantly – ala the underpinnings of Eurabia – an outline has been in place for decades. But as always, before ones overarching goal is reached, specific steps have to be undertaken to “soften” the ground. As such, it took approximately 4 decades for said outcome to near its marker. The upending.

NOW, it is into this deadly mix that the Islamist-in-Chief, a Brotherhood Mafia devotee, was assigned a major part. Hence, George-the-devil-incarnate backed him in the run up to 2008, as opposed to Hill, another Soros devotee. He clearly was hedging his bets on the “electability” factor etc.

SPECIFICALLY, George Soros, the most vile and evil man in the world who never held elective office, is in the forefront. His insatiable greed, coupled with his hatred for all things western, has brought about the collapse of quite a few nation states.

CSlX3CkWoAA_m0L

INHERENTLY, his goal is to rule via the New World Order, and so much more. But what is most relevant for Americans is that Soros, alongside Valerie Jarrett, is HUSSEIN Obama’s “hidden hand”, without which much of the upending of the Mid East couldn’t have taken place. Its importance lies within the knock-on effects, the blow back, to the US and Europe. Never forget this, nor the inextricable part he plays within US domestic upheavals, most prominently through Black Lives Matter. It is unarguably a domestic terror group.

AS is said, this is where the rubber meets the road: As repeatedly stated at this site and within several related interviews, Libya had to implode in order for the Mid East to explode. Yes, the so-called “Arab Spring” was part and parcel of said re-arranged decks. Yet, it was Libya that became the designated hub for the largest weapons-running operation to ever enter the Mid East theater, that which had to take place to arm the Brotherhood Mafia across the board. In effect, Syria had to break apart for the “refugee” crisis to invade Europe and beyond, the US included. A + B….a cascading hijrah!

IT is into this nation-shattering vortex that the oft-referenced “tipping point” entered Europe, soon to reverberate into America. Mark these words.

TIPPING POINT CZECH FIRESTORM:

Anti-Islamization groups in the Czech Republic, which has refused to take in thousands of unscreened Muslim freeloaders, are joined by PEGIDA, the group that started the anti-Muslim movement in Germany.

TIPPING POINT NETHERLANDS FIRESTORM:

AND when (generally) loosey goosey populations start to fight back, the situation is definitely fire-worthy!

Looks like all the “REFUGEES WELCOME” signs we saw a month ago have been replaced with angry citizens whose lives and neighborhoods are being threatened by tens of thousands of unscreened and potentially dangerous Muslim thugs and economic freeloaders.

 

 

TIPPING POINT GERMAN FIRESTORM:

Posters showing Chancellor Angela Merkel in a Muslim headbag are appearing at every anti-Muslim invader protest

AS to today’s Germans, it doesn’t take much for them to tell their leaders where they can go….

Germany scrambled Tuesday to quell a wave of anti-migrant violence, as a suspected arson attack hit a planned refugee shelter just hours after Chancellor Angela Merkel denounced xenophobic protests as “vile”.

Vowing to take tough action against perpetrators of such attacks, top politicians sought to reassure the unprecedented number of migrants arriving in the country that far-right extremists did not represent Germany. “With regards to xenophobic violence, there can only be one answer: police, justice and, if possible for those we catch, prison as well,” said Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel.

Germans are burning down buildings identified as asylum seeker housing

Merkel, who has been criticised for failing to forcefully address the wave of anti-migrant sentiment until this week, will on Wednesday visit a refugee centre targeted by far-right extremists and neo-Nazis in the eastern town of Heidenau.

Germany is expecting to receive a record number of 800,000 asylum-seekers this year, four times higher than the number in 2014.

MERKEL CALLS CRISIS MEETING ON MIGRANT INVASION AS GERMAN UNITY FRACTURES

TIPPING POINT SWITZERLAND FIRESTORM:

OH me, oh my, you know that a sh-t storm is brewing when the self-declared “neutral” Swiss come out swinging!

This is not what most people would refer to as assimilation. So much for these Muslims showing how grateful they are to be in a country where they are free from the “persecution” they endured in their homeland…

 

NEED this site go on, or is a very clear picture emerging re the anti-Islam backlash?? Finally…

IN the main, it is always mandatory to go from Point A to Point B and so on, whenever one is attempting to weave a geo-political picture. Not only that, previously, whenever the New World Order (see video) was mentioned, many rolled their eyes and dismissed it as “conspiracy-talk.” No longer. Suddenly, disbelievers have become believers. Oh, dear…the fog has lifted and the veil pierced. Yes, the times they are a changin’. Well, better late than never.

STILL yet, for those who refuse to believe that it is what it is, ask yourselves: How could it be that Europe, poof-like, is on FIRE from MASSIVE Islamic infiltration and penetration, to an extent never seen before? “It be.”

SANS a scintilla of a doubt – and over the past few decades – a growing number have become increasingly leery by the influx of Islam’s followers into Europe – drip by drip…step by step…encroachment by encroachment…you see where this is going. But a tipping point had to take place, before any meaningful and forceful counter measures took hold. 

CONSEQUENTIALLY, a burgeoning resistance to the takeover of Europe by Islam’s barbarians is now visible for all to witness, even the naysayers. Indeed, the heretofore unimaginable MEGA protests swathing across Europe – against the potential loss of this and that nation state – couldn’t be any starker.

NOW, Euro’s bastard and bought and paid for western leadership (sans a few exceptions, and with Geert Wilders in the forefront, a patriot extraordinaire…western history, if not re-written via historicism, will deem him its “savior” of sorts) have long sold out to its Arab masters (this is where Eurabia factors in) via the UN Kleptocracy and leftist US counterparts, in anticipation of the aforementioned New World Order. 

CONCLUSIVELY, every politically aware US patriot should be hyper-vigilant at home, but with eyes peeled toward Europe. In other words, although US patriots are a breed unto themselves, it is always prudent to learn from others. So if any lessons are to be learned, this site recommends upping the protest level, and with an exponential uptick in numbers from past (mostly meager, sorry for said truth-telling) protests.

INTRINSICALLY, state by state, city by city, and town by town, patriots should have solid (with adaptations for fluidity) plans on tap. Of course, the exact game plan should be left to those who are proven leaders in the area of “resistance” efforts. Most resolutely, this must take place BEFORE hundreds of thousands of Islamic “refugees” descend en mass via HUSSEIN Obama’s “refugee resettlement.” Effectively, the barn door must still be closed and the horses still inside, as opposed to trying to close the stable door after the horses have bolted. Makes sense?

MOST significantly, there is NO getting around this fact: It is no longer tenable to pretend that one is against Islamic immigration and not against Islam itself. It is intellectually (and morally) disingenuous to separate the two. For if moon god Allah’s followers (with many helping hands via Obama Inc.) were not bent on upending America F/B/O Shariah Law, well, this issue would be moot.

ALAS, let us all proclaim together: Islam is a cancerous scourge and that is that. It has NO place in the US and the west. Period.

OH, almost forgot, and from one patriot to another: Trust in G-d and keep your powder dry! The two are not mutually exclusive. They are inseparable.

(My daddy taught me how to pray, salute the flag, and shoot a gun.)

DHS:AMERICA’s “STANDING” ARMY.OBAMA INC.’s FORWARD ARM.WHAT’s THEIR END GAME? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki


LET’s be clear from the get go: this site is in constant contact with those whose “boots” are on the ground, be it in the realm of counter terror, or another related sphere. And those who expect this blogger to “give up” contacts, name names, (aside from one or two already cited at this blog, with their permission to do so) well, good luck with that. That’s not the way it works.

THAT being out-of-the-way, the related info at this site, re DHS and other matters, is not speculative, nor wholly from open source. Assuredly, none of it would see the light of day, unless supported by solid backing. Simply put, hardly that stupid.  

AGAIN, it bears repeating: yes, DHS, in its current incarnation, is a danger to America and not its protector! This is a seemingly strange and bold-faced statement, but no less true.

Danger One:

HOW many have noticed that DHS is appearing, again and again, as both an adjunct and trainer for civilian police forces? If not, time to catch up. And this is being done via Fed-laced financial incentives (even as the kitty runs dry), but under the guise of the “war on terror”.

Danger Two:

SO, by training community police forces on par with a regular standing army, well, whose needs does that serve (recall the motto, “to serve and protect”…hmm) other than those who are preparing for martial law? Exactly.

Danger Three:

EXTRAPOLATING further, since DHS appears to be preparing for martial law, then isn’t America becoming closer to a Police State, than not?

Danger Four:

And what more needs to be said, after a former NSA official spills the beans? Not much.

Whitehead: Has the Dept. of Homeland Security become America’s standing army?

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison

“Here [in New Mexico], we are moving more toward a national police force. Homeland Security is involved with a lot of little things around town. Somebody in Washington needs to call a timeout.”—Dan Klein, retired Albuquerque Police Department sergeant

If the United States is a police state, then the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is its national police force, with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies. In fact, although the DHS’ governmental bureaucracy may at times appear to be inept and bungling, it is ruthlessly efficient when it comes to building what the Founders feared most—a standing army on American soil.

The third largest federal agency behind the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, the DHS—with its 240,000 full-time workers, $61 billion budget and sub-agencies that include the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)—has been aptly dubbed a “runaway train.”

In the 12 years since it was established to “prevent terrorist attacks within the United States,” the DHS has grown from a post-9/11 knee-jerk reaction to a leviathan with tentacles in every aspect of American life. With good reason, a bipartisan bill to provide greater oversight and accountability into the DHS’ purchasing process has been making its way through Congress.

A better plan would be to abolish the DHS altogether. In making the case for shutting down the de facto national police agency, analyst Charles Kenny offers the following six reasons: one, the agency lacks leadership; two, terrorism is far less of a threat than it is made out to be; three, the FBI has actually stopped more alleged terrorist attacks than DHS; four, the agency wastes exorbitant amounts of money with little to show for it; five, “An overweight DHS gets a free pass to infringe civil liberties without a shred of economic justification”; and six, the agency is just plain bloated.

To Kenny’s list, I will add the following: The menace of a national police force, a.k.a. a standing army, vested with so much power cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored. Indeed, as the following list shows, just about every nefarious deed, tactic or thuggish policy advanced by the government today can be traced back to the DHS, its police state mindset, and the billions of dollars it distributes to police agencies in the form of grants.

Militarizing police and SWAT teams. The DHS routinely hands out six-figure grants to enable local municipalities to purchase military-style vehicles, as well as a veritable war chest of weaponry, ranging from tactical vests, bomb-disarming robots, assault weapons and combat uniforms. This rise in military equipment purchases funded by the DHS has, according to analysts Andrew Becker and G.W. Schulz, “paralleled an apparent increase in local SWAT teams.” The end result? An explosive growth in the use of SWAT teams for otherwise routine police matters, an increased tendency on the part of police to shoot first and ask questions later, and an overall mindset within police forces that they are at war—and the citizenry are the enemy combatants.

Spying on activists, dissidents and veterans. In 2009, DHS released three infamous reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism,” and another entitled Operation Vigilant Eagle, outlining a surveillance program targeting veterans. The reports collectively and broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.” In 2013, it was revealed that DHS, the FBI, state and local law enforcement agencies, and the private sector were working together to conduct nationwide surveillance on protesters’ First Amendment activities.

Stockpiling ammunition. DHS, along with other government agencies, has been stockpiling an alarming amount of ammunition in recent years, which only adds to the discomfort of those already leery of the government. As of 2013, DHS had 260 million rounds of ammo in stock, which averages out to between 1,300 to 1,600 rounds per officer. The US Army, in contrast, has roughly 350 rounds per soldier. DHS has since requisitioned more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, “enough,” concludes Forbes magazine, “to sustain a hot war for 20+ years.”

Distributing license plate readers. DHS has already distributed more than $50 million in grants to enable local police agencies to acquire license plate readers, which rely on mobile cameras to photograph and identify cars, match them against a national database, and track their movements. Relying on private contractors to maintain a license plate database allows the DHS and its affiliates to access millions of records without much in the way of oversight.

Contracting to build detention camps. In 2006, DHS awarded a $385 million contract to a Halliburton subsidiary to build detention centers on American soil. Although the government and Halliburton were not forthcoming about where or when these domestic detention centers would be built, they rationalized the need for them in case of “an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs” in the event of other emergencies such as “natural disasters.” Viewed in conjunction with the NDAA provision allowing the military to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone, including American citizens, it would seem the building blocks are already in place for such an eventuality.

Tracking cell-phones with Stingray devices. Distributed to local police agencies as a result of grants from the DHS, these Stingray devices enable police to track individuals’ cell phones—and their owners—without a court warrant or court order. The amount of information conveyed by these devices about one’s activities, whereabouts and interactions is considerable. As one attorney explained: “Because we carry our cellphones with us virtually everywhere we go, stingrays can paint a precise picture of where we are and who we spend time with, including our location in a lover’s house, in a psychologist’s office or at a political protest.”

Carrying out military drills and lockdowns in American cities. Each year, DHS funds military-style training drills in cities across the country. These Urban Shield exercises, elaborately staged with their own set of professionally trained Crisis Actors playing the parts of shooters, bystanders and victims, fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers, bystanders and the media into thinking it’s a real crisis.

Using the TSA as an advance guard. The TSA now searches a variety of government and private databases, including things like car registrations and employment information, in order to track travelers’ before they ever get near an airport. Other information collected includes “tax identification number, past travel itineraries, property records, physical characteristics, and law enforcement or intelligence information.”

Conducting virtual strip searches with full-body scanners. Under the direction of the TSA, American travelers have been subjected to all manner of searches ranging from whole-body scanners and enhanced patdowns at airports to bag searches in train stations. In response to public outrage over what amounted to a virtual strip search, the TSA has begun replacing the scanners with equally costly yet less detailed models. The old scanners will be used by prisons for now.

Carrying out soft target checkpoints. VIPR task forces, comprised of federal air marshals, surface transportation security inspectors, transportation security officers, behavior detection officers and explosive detection canine teams have laid the groundwork for the government’s effort to secure so-called “soft” targets such as malls, stadiums, bridges, etc. Some security experts predict that checkpoints and screening stations will eventually be established at all soft targets, such as department stores, restaurants, and schools. DHS’ Operation Shield, a program which seeks to check up on security protocols around the country with unannounced visits, conducted a surprise security exercise at the Social Security Administration building in Leesburg, Fla., when they subjected people who went to pick up their checks to random ID checks by federal agents armed with semi-automatic weapons.

Directing government workers to spy on Americans. Terrorism Liaison Officers are firefighters, police officers, and even corporate employees who have received training to spy on and report back to government entities on the day-to-day activities of their fellow citizens. These individuals are authorized to report “suspicious activity” which can include such innocuous activities as taking pictures with no apparent aesthetic value, making measurements and drawings, taking notes, conversing in code, espousing radical beliefs, and buying items in bulk.

Conducting widespread spying networks using fusion centers. Data collecting agencies spread throughout the country, aided by the National Security Agency, fusions centers—of which there are at least 78 scattered around the U.S.— constantly monitor our communications, collecting and cataloguing everything from our internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails. This data is then fed to government agencies, which are now interconnected: the CIA to the FBI, the FBI to local police. Despite a budget estimated to be somewhere between $289 million and $1.4 billion, these fusion centers have proven to be exercises in incompetence, often producing irrelevant, useless or inappropriate intelligence, while spending millions of dollars on “flat-screen televisions, sport utility vehicles, hidden cameras and other gadgets.”

Carrying out Constitution-free border control searches. On orders from the DHS, the government’s efforts along the border have become little more than an exercise in police state power, ranging from aggressive checkpoints to the widespread use of drone technology, often used against American citizens traveling within the country. Border patrol operations occur within 100 miles of an international crossing, putting some 200 million Americans within the bounds of aggressive border patrol searches and seizures, as well as increasingly expansive drone surveillance. With 71 checkpoints found along the southwest border of the United States alone, suspicionless search and seizures on the border are rampant. Border patrol agents also search the personal electronic devices of people crossing the border without a warrant.

Funding city-wide surveillance cameras. As Charlie Savage reports for the Boston Globe, the DHS has funneled “millions of dollars to local governments nationwide for purchasing high-tech video camera networks, accelerating the rise of a ‘surveillance society’ in which the sense of freedom that stems from being anonymous in public will be lost.” These camera systems, installed on city streets, in parks and transit systems, operating in conjunction with sophisticated computer systems that boast intelligent video analytics, digital biometric identification, military-pedigree software for analyzing and predicting crime and facial recognition software, create a vast surveillance network that can target millions of innocent individuals.

Utilizing drones and other spybots. The DHS has been at the forefront of funding and deploying surveillance robots and drones for land, sea and air, including robots that resemble fish and tunnel-bots that can travel underground. Despite repeated concerns over the danger surveillance drones used domestically pose to Americans’ privacy rights, the DHS has continued to expand its fleet of Predator drones, which come equipped with video cameras, infrared cameras, heat sensors, and radar. DHS also loans its drones out to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies for a variety of tasks, although the agency refuses to divulge any details as to how, why and in what capacity these drones are being used by police. Incredibly, the DHS has also been handing out millions of dollars in grants to local police agencies to “accelerate the adoption” of drones in their localities.

It’s not difficult to see why the DHS has been described as a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast.” If it is a beast, however, it is a beast that is accelerating our nation’s transformation into a police state through its establishment of a standing army, a.k.a. national police force.

This, too, is nothing new. Historically, as I show in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the establishment of a national police force has served as a fundamental and final building block for every totalitarian regime that has ever wreaked havoc on humanity, from Hitler’s all-too-real Nazi Germany to George Orwell’s fictional Oceania. Whether fictional or historical, however, the calling cards of these national police agencies remain the same: brutality, inhumanity, corruption, intolerance, rigidity, and bureaucracy—in other words, evil.

DESPITE all of the above, the inherent questions become: what are they up to? what is their end game?

Basically, Americans are witnessing the “practical” application of planned “deconstruction”, on a scale heretofore seen in the free world. Meaning, when the (pre-planned) dollar collapse creates massive civil unrest, a militarized police state has to be up and running! You got that?  


martial-law-in-boston-april-19-2013

BUT not everything meant for America’s demise is executed on its soil. While the planning is (mostly) domestic, the current (purposeful) re-jiggering of the geo-political landscape in the Mid East, designed to usher in the “New World Order” – a plan supported by both Dems and RINOS alike – is taking place across the world.

FOR the historical record, Bush Sr. spoke glowingly of its “eventuality”, in tandem with other high level Americans.

IN essence, this national hit job (and this is what it amounts to) cannot be done without ushering in WW 3; with Russia and its Shia-led proxies fighting against CIA backed Sunni/Al Qaeda-linked/ISS forces. Each side understands that the dollar’s collapse is a “necessary” precursor, for the U.S. to collapse as the world’s superpower.

Down to the trip wire….

DIABOLICAL, but no less true. Undoubtedly, this collapse has been in the works for decades. Barack HUSSEIN Obama, a foreign implant, was brought in to oversee America’s – the dollar’s – demise

UN Hiring Peacekeepers To Disarm American Citizens…yes, they are!

WAR RAGING AGAINST “OBAMACORE”:THE PURPOSEFUL DUMBING DOWN OF “AMERIKA”.30 STATES, PARENTS, TEACHERS ON THE WARPATH…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

New York City families protest Common Core (Photo: WNYC)

AS repeatedly stated at this site, charging after the kiddies is a MAIN objective of the radical, revolutionary left. In fact, this is precisely why “capturing their hearts and minds” has been a preoccupation of the left, ever since they went wild in the 1960’s.

At the same time that Demsters were busy indoctrinating generation after generation via leftist front-arms of (mis)education – plus co-opting the teacher’s unions…most recently through Obama Inc’s training of various foot soldier’s – what have conservatives been doing? NOTHING. Yup…nada, zip, zilch. 

To wit, the chickens have come home to roost and America’s children are their prized foul. How so? Let this site count the ways:

Count One:

Charging after America’s children, one cannot escape the imprint of both the reds and the greens (Islamists). Tragically, as a result, the kiddies are boxed into their vise-grip:First They Came For The Kiddies: Well Heeled/Known Prep School (Philips Exeter Academy)Trucks With Terrorists!

Count Two:

Therefore, how many American parents (others too) understand how insidious the grab for the kiddies is? And, as mentioned, their reach has been ongoing for decades, yet, under the reign of the Radical-in-Chief, their thrust has been raised to the max:Domestic Terrorist, Bill Ayers (Educator Too!), Exhorts Control Over The Kiddies!

Count Three:

In light of the above, a little over a year ago, this issue required back to back alarms and the following was blared:ALERT: Americans, Domestic Terrorists (Foreign Born Too) Are Teaching Your Kiddies & Mentoring Their Teachers Through Workshops Etc!

This issue is so serious, it was also featured at an op-ed (by this blogger) at American Thinker:

Bill Ayers, the foremost leader of the Weathermen “isin his third decade as a national leader in the movement to radicalize the educational training of schoolteachers”. His wife, Bernardine Dohrn, a top leader too “is a professor of law at Northwestern and a high-ranking officer in the American Bar Association.” Eleanor Raskin (ne Stein) “is a law professor at S.U.N.Y Albany and, astonishingly, a NYS administrative law judge”. Jeff Jones “currently heads the New York-based Apollo Alliance, a highly influential coalition of labor leaders and environmentalists, and was responsible for drafting President Obama’s 2009 Recovery Act.”

The list of “respectable” cover, of other “notables” in the Weathermen, is equally impressive. Through a stringently planned operational “stealth jihad”, yesteryear’s Weathermen have returned, fully primed to carry out their original goal — the “transformation” of Amerika. Most significantly, they subvert the national interest from a distinctly dangerous vantage point. They are currently ensconced in some of the most powerful positions in academia and political life. The only difference is, this time they are dressed in “capitalist” garb, not only in their clothing choices, but in the wealth they have accumulated, paradoxically, through joining the “establishment”. Who said one can’t enrich oneself, but at the same time deny the masses/proletariat said wealth potential? Highly dangerous in their bomb-making days, their capacity to cripple America, sans firing actual weaponry is that much greater at this critical juncture in time. Deeply involved in the “transformation” process, as promised by President Obama, many of them working inside the executive branch, while others operate through progressive think tanks, they want nothing more than to distance themselves from their bloody past. Therefore, an omerta has descended from the denizens of the leftist media and their powerful organs….

Count Four:

Really, how many times must it be shouted: “OBAMACORE” IS TIED INTO DOMESTIC TERRORIST BILL AYERS: BRINGING DOWN AMERICA VIA THE KIDDIES!

Alas, 30 states are now on the warpath, and thank heavens for that…aiming for all 50!

30 STATES WAGE WAR ON ‘OBAMACORE’

‘They thought people would be sheep and roll over, but it hasn’t turned out that way’

By Karen VanTil Gushta

Editor’s Note: This is the third in a series of stories about Common Core, the controversial new educational agenda aimed at imposing federal government standards on every aspect of public and private education in America, which some are even calling “ObamaCore.” The first part spelled out the high stakes for parents, students and education. The second part followed the money trail behind Common Core.

The battle over the deceptively titled Common Core State Standards Initiative, or CCSSI, is raging, and the rhetoric is fierce. Supporters of the national standards have called their opponents “right-wing nuts” and “black helicopter” types.

“All of us get lumped together as ‘the fringe,’ ‘the far right,’ tea partiers,’ etc.,” said Jane Robbins, co-author of the report “Controlling Education from the Top: Why the Common Core is Bad for America.”

“When they don’t have the facts on their side they resort to ad-hominem,” she said.

Opponents of Common Core claim it is the product of progressive elitists who want to put all children under control of federal government bureaucrats. That view was reinforced when a panelist at the liberal think-tank Center for American Progress discounted the opposition as only a “tiny minority,” claiming such views should be ignored because “the children belong to all of us.”

The term “Common Core” has become “toxic,” according to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. He continues to support the standards in spite of a unanimous resolution by the Republican National Committee in April 2013 to oppose them. Huckabee told state education leaders at a meeting of the Council of Chief State School Officers: “Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t retreat.”

So far, Arizona, Iowa, Florida and Pennsylvania have followed his advice, eliminating the name “Common Core” from their state standards.

‘White suburban moms’

Education Secretary Arne Duncan claims opposition to Common Core is coming from “white, suburban moms” who are suddenly discovering their children are not “as brilliant as they thought they were.” When Duncan’s comments went viral, “white, suburban moms” quickly found many defenders in the blogosphere and opinion columns.

In January, Duncan spoke to a gathering of curriculum professionals. As he lectured them on the distinction between standards and curricula, he asserted that “not a word, not a single semi-colon of curriculum [sic] will be created, encouraged, or prescribed by the federal government.”

But Duncan’s pep talk to curriculum specialists about their role in implementing the standards only increased the perception that it is indeed a federal, not a state, initiative. George Will noted in his Washington Post article “Doubts Over Common Core” that when the federal government initiates top-down “reforms” in education, any mistakes that result are “continental mistakes.”

Will stated the obvious: “National standards must breed ineluctable pressure to standardize educational content. Targets, metrics, guidelines and curriculum models all induce conformity in instructional materials.”

Indeed, textbook companies now advertise “Common Core Editions,” and educational testing companies provide “Common Core-aligned” standardized tests.

The link between the national SAT test and Common Core was forged when the College Board, which puts out the placement test for college-bound students, hired David Coleman as president. The Gates and Mott foundations gave Coleman’s nonprofit, Student Achievement Partners, money to write the standards, which were commissioned by the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association.

The new College Board assessments will start rolling out this year with the redesigned PSAT. The new SAT is scheduled for 2015. The once-venerable Iowa Test of Basic Skills is now Common Core-aligned, and even the GED is getting its first makeover since 2002 so it will line up with the standards.

Teachers withdraw support

Fearing this link between the national standards and high-stakes testing, the board of New York’s teachers union voted unanimously Jan. 25 to withdraw its support for the national standards “as they are being implemented.” The union board also declared no confidence in Education Commissioner John King Jr., a Common Core backer, and asked the Board of Regents to remove him. Union leaders urged the state education department to make “major course corrections to its failed implementation plan” and enact a three-year moratorium on the testing.

The Board of Regents responded to the concerns by giving public schools five more years to implement Common Core. Public school teachers will not be held accountable for student test scores for two years.

There is some movement in Congress to oppose the CCSSI. On Jan. 30, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., introduced Senate Bill 1974. It is now in the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, on which Roberts sits.

The bill, titled the “Learning Opportunities Created at the Local Level Act,” would prohibit the federal government from coercing states to adopt education standards like Common Core. The act would forbid the federal government from intervening in a state’s education standards, curricula and assessments through the use of incentives, mandates, grants, waivers or any other form of manipulation.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry and the state legislature effectively banned Common Core from Texas schools

Roberts opposed the Obama administration’s Race to the Top grant program, and he and nine other senators have gone on record against spending any federal funds to develop education curriculum or standards, including the Common Core. Given the present make-up of the Senate, Roberts’ efforts may not gain much headway in Congress.

The real battle against Common Core is being waged in the states. As of Feb. 8, edu-blogger Mercedes Schneider had identified legislative action on the Common Core in 30 states.

“Legislators in most of these 30 states are advancing bills to halt the testing consequences of a CCSS that they admittedly do not understand – and for which they must now count the cost,” Schneider wrote.

Initially, the only states that didn’t compete for Race to the Top funds were Alaska, North Dakota, Texas and Vermont. For Texas legislators, that wasn’t enough. They wanted to ensure the State Board of Education would not follow Alaska’s example and adopt Common Core anyway. In June, Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed H.B. 462, effectively banning the Common Core State Standards from Texas schools. The bill had passed by a 140-2 vote in the Texas House.

Some states are now delaying implementation of the standards, such as New York. Illinois has bills in both legislative chambers to delay implementation. Colorado’s legislation would delay them until public hearings have been held. Rhode Island wants to study and evaluate the standards.

After its Board of Education voted in 2010 to adopt the CCSSI, Indiana became the first to align its teacher preparation standards to Common Core. However, even members of the state legislature’s education committees didn’t know much about what the adoption entailed until they started hearing from alarmed parents when the standards began to impact school curricula.

Opposition spreads

As opposition to the standards spread, former Indiana Superintendent of Instruction Tony Bennett visited tea-party meetings around the state to defend them. His Democrat opponent in the 2012 election, Glenda Ritz, told parents she wanted to “pause” adoption of the Common Core.

When election results came in, Bennett was out, in spite of the $90,000 reportedly given by the Gates Foundation to fund pro-Common Core advertising on Indiana TV and radio. Last May, newly elected Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed a bill delaying adoption of the Common Core. In January, the Indiana Senate Education and Career Development Committee voted to send a measure to the Senate floor to repeal the Common Core Standards. If the state legislature passes the bill, it would charge the State Board of Education with developing by July 1 new “college- and-career-ready standards,” a favorite phrase with the pro-Common Core faction.

Erin Tuttle, founder of the grassroots Hoosiers Against Common Core, told the Indy Star that the State Board of Education should not make a few tweaks and slap the label “Indiana Standards” on any new guidelines. She said parents will notice if their children are assigned homework that looks like Common Core.

“Parents will be outraged. They will feel tricked,” he said.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said to be “big gorilla” behind Common Core movement

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been an active advocate of Common Core, not only in Florida but across the country. His nonprofit, Foundation for Educational Excellence, which received $500,000 from the Gates Foundation in 2010, has lobbied for the Core and sent letters to state legislators in embattled states.

Jane Robbins, senior fellow at the American Principles Project, said Jeb Bush “is the ‘big gorilla’ behind the Common Core movement.”

“Bill Gates is the financier, but Jeb Bush is the one who is twisting the arms of all of these Republican governors and legislators around the country not to do the right thing and regain local control,” Robbins said.

In 2013, after he was voted out as Indiana school chief, Bush’s protégé, Tony Bennett, was appointed Florida’s Education Commissioner. His tenure didn’t last long. He resigned after eight months when it was discovered he had been involved in a plan to improve the school evaluation grade of an Indiana charter school run by Christel DeHaan, a major donor to the Republican Party and to Bennett.

Now the question is whether Bush’s influence in Florida is strong enough to stop efforts there to repeal Common Core. A bill to prohibit the State Board of Education from continuing to implement the Common Core Standards has been introduced in the Florida House, which convenes March 4. The bill (H.B. 25) would stop implementation until certain requirements are met for the adoption or revision of state curricular standards. It also would prohibit Florida from implementing Common Core-aligned assessments.

Common Core supporters are hoping H.B.25 won’t go anywhere. It’s being held in the House and Senate education committees until a companion bill is offered in the Senate. Karen Effrem, co-founder of the Florida Stop Common Core Coalition, said a Senate companion bill has been written and will be submitted.

Effrem said that since Florida is “the land of Jeb Bush,” if these bills pass “it would be a huge shot in the arm to the anti-Common Core movement not only in Florida, but in the rest of the country.”

“And that is why ‘the powers that be’ are fighting us so hard.”

Scathing report

The Heritage Foundation, Heartland Foundation, Pioneer Institute and the American Principles Project, which produced the scathing report on Common Core, “Controlling Education from the Top: Why Common Core Is Bad for America,” are all providing intellectual bullets and moral support to those on the battle lines. Co-authors of the APP report, Emmett McGroarty and Jane Robbins, have been traveling around the country to speak to groups that are fighting the standards.

Robbins said proponents of Common Core did not anticipate how much opposition they would face.

“They thought people would be sheep and roll over and accept what the experts told them to do; but it hasn’t turned out that way,” she said.

Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee now have bills in their state legislatures to halt or abolish the standards.

MOST stunningly, the dept of (mis)education always has the backing of one billionaire Demster or another. RINO’s can be found in tow too. Appallingly, the Bush dynasty is in the forefront, even as they audaciously drape themselves in Repub garb. Disturbingly, too many conservatives buy their hustle. For the umpteenth time, Bush and Co. play footsie with Demsters and their globalist agenda, of which indoctrinating the kiddies are part and parcel thereof! And, this is NO conspiracy theory. Full disclosure: mea culpa, this American-Israeli voted for Bush…does holding ones nose resonate? 

In other words, while Gates and cronies have amassed great wealth – and can afford to educate their kiddies for generations to come, however they deem fit – the mischief they design (think:George Soros, the devil incarnate) towards America’s children (and their parents) is nightmarish. So, one has to ask: what benefit do they accrue by “dumbing down” generations of American kiddies?

Intrinsically, the bigotry of low expectations, especially against minorities who are most at risk, is stunningly revealed. Obamacore has been exposed for what it is. It is hereby renamed: Indoctrinecore. Indeed, does total control ring any alarms?

Assuredly, even when the leftists of today are no longer among the living, their blood lines move forward for generations to come Think: the New World Order designs of the Rockefeller’s and their lust for total power and control!
