Texas Elected Officials
The Texas Capitol
1100 Congress Ave
Austin, TX 78701

Dear Elected Leader,

We believe you, our Elected Representative want to provide a safe and secure
education opportunity to all Texas students. We are requesting an appointment for you to meet with the parents and researchers who do not have a seat at the table at this time but are requesting to begin this discussion which is the process of the implementation of the “Medicalization of Our Schools” through Medicaid.

We are witnessing today what could be described as the grandest expansion of the Nanny State in the history of America. We believe this expansion to be one of the most diabolical, intricate, and subversive schemes to plague the landscape of American public policy toward Socialism.

This atrocity is “The Medicalization of Our Schools.”

A view from the classroom of today would astound onlookers that mental health and social, emotional, and behavioral interventions have replaced academics. With these wrap-around mental health services and interventions into personalities, values, beliefs, and dispositions at school, teachers are expected and forced to monitor and collect personal behavioral data on our children that has nothing to do with education. Data is collected, logged into state longitudinal data systems, shared, and ultimately, exposes our children to ‘surveillance capitalism.’ This personal data is freely given and used by outside contractors, foundations, and businesses to create software, curricula, activities, and programs that delve into changing the personal qualities of children and their families according to a government set of objectives.

Schools represent a “captive audience” and as such, prime targets for social policy change.
From a purely educational viewpoint, this could be termed “The Destruction of the American Educational System.”

From a health care perspective, this could be viewed as “The Subversion of the
World’s Finest System of Health Care.”

From a societal vantage point, this could be described as “The Subduing of the
American Family.”

However, because of the integration of business and labor, this could also just as accurately be dubbed, “The Collectivization of American Capitalism.”

Analyzed from a public policy perspective, it could be called “The Demise of
Representative Government.”

All of these titles would be accurate because each of them describes different appendages of the same program. What is involved in the “Medicalization of Our Schools?” At issue is Medicaid with screenings and interventions that take place under the cloak of prevention and “health.”

Once the government-sponsored health insurance program for the poor, Medicaid has now moved mainstream into our schools. It is paying salaries, funding multiple programs that boldly intrude into the sanctity of the home, and is the cause of escalating federal and state budgets. If this weren’t objectionable enough, the Medicaid component is but one spoke on the wheel of the larger societal restructuring movement that clearly orchestrates a number of large federal entitlement programs to produce what the Obama administration called a ‘safety net and prevention.’ In reality, if left unrestrained, it will become a “seamless web” through which no one will fall and ultimately no one escapes. The merging of federal data in HR 4174 escalates this agenda.

The universal screening of every normal child for social, emotional, and behavioral mental health problems has become the policy to identify as many children as possible for free federal Medicaid money. Our schools are milking the system through bureaucratic maneuvering. This future impetus combines Education and Welfare programs into a common thrust that appears to have bypassed our state legislatures. The fiscal impact of the merging of education and healthcare has not been thoroughly researched as the Medicaid program spans birth to age 20. Yes, American children are in danger of pure behavioral conditioning as a lucrative business. Our children are victimized by the intruding arm of government moving toward a controlled monopoly.

The larger wheel of implementation includes FERPA, Family Education Rights In Privacy Act, and ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, and both are to blame for the forward movement of these destructive combinations that include data-mining of our children, the identification and labeling of normal children as mentally disabled but not special education, psycho-behavioral interventions to change American children toward this collectivist state, and Medicaid that will pay for this abomination with its tentacles into the family with eventual case management in an Individual Family Service Plan. This plan assures that every American child will be identified with a unique national ID and a recycling system of behavioral interventions laid out in ESSA. The impact of a child having a DSM code (Diagnostic Statistical Manual For Mental Disorders) on their permanent record because of a mental health Medicaid reimbursement would have many future consequences including access to higher education, getting a job, or never owning a gun which would erase the Second Amendment in several years. American children are at risk of losing America in their future.

In Texas, some questionable behaviors have happened over the last couple of years in
regards to the lack of privacy with student information, which has gotten parents from all over the state’s attention.

First, during the summer of 2017, the TEA entered into a no-bid contract with a company named SPEDX. They handed over hundreds of thousands of student Individual Educational Plans (IEP) to SPEDx without proper parent notification or consent. IEPs include student diagnoses, medications, behavioral intervention plans, school accommodations, health data, and more. The SPEDx mission was to data-mine the information from the student’s IEPs and come up with a “plan” to fix special education in Texas. TEA terminated the contract when concerned parents spoke out against it. The owner and founder of SPEDx, Dr. Richard Nyankori, has since started a new company that sells special education software. To this date, the state of Texas has not received notification from SPEDx that the student IEP data was ever destroyed.

Secondly, in 2018 a lawsuit was filed against ACT claiming that ACT illegally sold detailed student disability data to colleges, scholarship programs, and other third parties who use the information for college recruitment and marketing. Colleges must practice “disability-blind” admissions under federal civil rights laws, however, they have gotten around this by buying student information from ACT, which is a direct violation of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), among other laws.

We truly believe that as our Elected Official, you would be able to slow down and stop this “Child Abuse in the Classroom” that is being thrust on our Texas children today. Former President Obama had issued an Executive Order that unlocked the doors of privacy which now allows our children to be data-mined of their personal information which includes social, emotional, and behavioral information. FERPA must be changed.

We are requesting the truth be told to parents about the conditioning techniques codified in ESSA and performed without informed written parental consent that must be stopped. We believe that you would want Texas to continue to be the guiding light of our nation, to educate our children with the best education in the world, and prove to the non-believers that our children can compete with anyone in the world. We pray that you are listening.

Violations In Pursuit of the “Medicalization of Our Schools” Through Medicaid

Data Tracking: Collection of PII (Personally Identifiable Information) on babies, children, and teachers identified with a unique national ID, contracted by Institute for Educational Sciences, NCES/IES, in compliance with Obama’s Executive Order 12866 expanding state longitudinal data systems to collect and share personally identifiable data on our children.

Data Trafficking: States Release Personally Identifiable Information, PII, to 3rd Party Contractors: State Departments of Education are able to enter into written agreements with businesses, foundations, higher education, and other Departments, releasing PII because of the loopholes in FERPA, (Family Education Rights and Privacy Act) that redefine school officials. Personally Identifiable Information, “womb to workforce” data, is freely given to 3rd party contractors through written agreements contracted by each state DOE.

Treatment, Interventions, Psychological Abuse: ESSA, Every Student Succeeds
Act mandates PII collected on attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions (grit) carried out by IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). All students, birth through college-aged students are identified under Title I for social, emotional, and behavioral change, Child Find. Techniques defined in ESSA include behavioral interventions: Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports, Response To Intervention, Multi-Tiered System Of Supports, Universal Design For Learning. The NCES/IES monitors and evaluates compliance, and experimental research through a unique national ID of children and teachers alike.

Privacy Violations: Exchange and Re-Disclosure of PII continues, including data collected on attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions, without the knowledge or consent of parents. Directory information is cross-referenced with behavioral data collected on the local level. Privacy protections have been removed. Data, the new currency uses children as a commodity. These blatant data mining violations are child abuse.

Violations of the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment, PPRA: Violations under Title I school-wide through the use of psychiatric, psychological examination, assessment, evaluation, or testing; Psychiatric or psychological treatment/ interventions deceptively used in classrooms without the knowledge, disclosure, or written permission of parents.

Civil Rights Violations: Interventions, treatment, and re-education of attitudes, values, dispositions, and beliefs of children are profound violations of 1st Amendment protections of our God-given right to “right of conscience” and the 4th Amendment protection of our God-given right “to be secure in their persons.”

Public Law 103-33, General Education Provisions Act, Sec 438: Federal Government is supervising and directing curriculum creating a “model national curriculum” and a national test. NCES/IES evaluates and monitors students, teachers, funding, principals, schools, districts, and states for mental health data.

Malpractice and Maltreatment of Children and Babies by Teachers and Preschool Caregivers: Teachers/preschool caregivers, (exceeding their professional certifications), are required to screen, evaluate, perform anecdotal behavioral assessments, conditioning, and implement psychological remediation of the child’s attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions called social, emotional learning to comply with global initiatives under ESSA. These interventions are screened by teachers as mental health disabilities through fidelity (Do it right-techniques.) are now called “implementation science.” Standards defined by Department of Labor SCANS Report, create the process of “supply-chain management to humans.” This Social and Emotional Learning system sets up schools to begin coding mental health interventions in the classrooms of America for Medicaid reimbursements.

Not So Fast Mike Villarreal and Dan Branch~ HB 2103 Must be Stopped!

BILL ANALYSIS ~ Texas HB2103 

Texas Representative Mike Villarreal and Rep. Dan Branch have introduced HB 2103.

Bill has been Placed on General State Calendar for 

 

 04/24/2013 

  

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

Interested parties assert that student data collected by the Texas Education Agency should be made more accessible to researchers so that it can be used to improve the state’s education system. C.S.H.B. 2103 aims to provide for this increased accessibility and also seeks to establish an education research center advisory board and set limits on who can request research, which would allow the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to sift through fewer requests and approve researchers in a more timely manner.

Jason, why

I called Cathy Adams President of Texas Eagle Forum and she said quote:

“This would deepen the impact of “school-to-work” which is the German / Prussian education system.”. Ok Moms and Dads are you really ok with this?

What is a P20 Workforce Council ~

The P20 Council is to create a State DATA Base for Education Researchers.

The P20 will among other things – collect data P = Pre-kindergarten through 20 = 20 years of age
P20 database is tasked with collecting information (data points) on Texas students from early childhood to workforce-aged youngsters.
 
FERPA (Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act) laws changed in January of 2012, allowing PII to be used in more than 11 different ways WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM PARENTS OR STUDENTS
Call your Representative Today and Say NO to HB 2103. Why would we trust a P20 Board with our children and their Teacher’s private data when things like this are happening in Texas.

CAIR WORKING HARD TO KILL TEXAS ALAC BILL

At the Capital in Austin on Jan. 31st the photo below was taken. It was Texas Muslim Day. Of the 12 sponsoring groups 8 have direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Texas Muslim Day at the Capital CAIR

So it is not surprising to find out…..

When it comes to Senator John Carona’s legislation, SB1639, Texas’ American Laws for American Courts legislation, our opponents become more vocal as we get closer to victory.And we are VERY close to victory in Texas.

One such opponent is the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted conspirator in the Texas Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial and a Muslim Brotherhood front group operating right here in the U.S.

Just the other day, CAIR put out a “Texas Action Alert” asking legislators to “put a stop to anti-Muslim legislation in the Senate.” Specifically, CAIR tells its members that “if 11 Senators vote to block the measure, it can be stopped….” And they ask them to “call your Texas Senator today and ask that they block SB1639 from reaching the floor.

Pro-ALAC patriots: We need the voices of Texas to tell the ALL State Senators what the bill REALLY does…and what it does NOT do. We need your voice today.

As a reminder, SB1639 is merely common-sense proposal protects Texans’ individual constitutional rights from foreign laws or legal doctrines in cases related to marriage, divorce, or parent-child relationships, where the application of those laws/doctrines would violate those constitutional rights. No particular foreign law is singled out. The legislation applies to them all.

SB 1639 was recently passed out of the Texas Senate Business & Commerce Committee by a vote of 5 to 4. The next step is for the Rules Committee to send the legislation to the Senate floor for a final vote.

At this time, we need all of our Texas members to relay their strong support for SB 1639 to their individual state Senator. By continuing to work together, we can see American Laws for American Courts legislation passed in Texas this session!

In order to see ALAC passed into law in Texas, can we count on you to perform the following easy action today?

** IMPORTANT ACTION ITEM **

We need your help TODAY in contacting YOUR STATE SENATOR to relay your strong support for SB 1639 and your desire to see the bill reach the Senate floor as soon as possible for a vote.

(Click HERE to locate your state Senator and his/her contact information.)

Please respectfully relay the sentiments below, either via phone call

or e-mail:Senator,

I urge you to support SB 1639, introduced by Senator John Carona, in order to protect the constitutional rights of Texans from the incursion of foreign laws and foreign legal doctrines.

Further, I ask that you do all you can to see this important bill brought before the full Senate so it can receive the vote it deserves.

To-date, four other states have passed legislation like SB 1639. Texas needs to be next, as we must maintain the authority of the Texas and U.S. Constitutions.

As a Texas voter, this bill is of the utmost importance to me!

Thank you for your leadership on this vital matter.

Sincerely,

(Your name and city)

Again, many thanks for all of your efforts, Texas. You ARE making a difference!

 

 

 

Are we Desensitizing our Daughters? More Texas High School Girls wearing Islamic Attire

While in Washington last week Women On The Wall asked the question…..

With the CSCOPE and Common Core Curriculum are we creating a National Security problem. Please take the time to listen to the answer and listen to Pamela Gellar’s solution.

Hint it is YOU-

CSCOPE ~ Are we Desensitizing our Daughters?Now today we have reports of  Texas Cscope School in Rockwall ISD has students adorn Hijabs in a High School Geography Class. From Ginger Russell More Texas Students in Islam Attire 

The students photographed themselves and posted the photos on the popular  social media site, Istagram.

Presently in the Islamic tourist region of the Maldives a young 15 year old girl is sentenced to flogging of a 100 whippings. Her crime was ruled “SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE” due to the fact that her step dad raped her continually over a period of years and murdered her ba

image_1364134192849396Rockwall girl 3

Let’s step back and look as what in fact is happening in other parts of the world where in the name of “Political Correctness” have allowed in Islamic Sharia law. From Pat

NewMediaJournal-Islamic extremists are stepping up the creation of “no-go” areas in European cities that are off-limits to non-Muslims.

Many of the “no-go” zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services.

The “no-go” areas are the by-product of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies and remain segregated rather than become integrated into their European host nations.

Related update – France set to deport radical Imams from the country

 

Now I ask you again…..Are we desensitizing our Daughters and creating a National Security Threat.

Please keep in mind that because we are taking on the public schools parents are looking for other avenues to educate their children. Many who can’t afford private schools (even though private schools use CommonCore and CSCOPE) run to charter schools. Who by the way target the lower income hispanic and black community.

Just to be clear, I am not against all Charter Schools. Although I firmly believe we must have major safe guards in place to protect our citizens from organizations who seek access to our children to harm our nation. I also believe we should hold elected officials accountable for the legislation they put forward which may pose a National Security threat to our nation.

By promoting Charter School legislation some elected officials see a way to get votes and stay in their positions of power. Which gives them the opportunity to move to higher office. In addition it opens the door to raise huge campaign donations from charter school lobbies.  An example of such groups is the Cosmos Foundation/Harmony/Gulen Science Centers who have given free all expense paid trips to legislators in Texas and across the country and whose consultant was former executive director of the Republican Party and trusted advisor to President George W. Bush, Karen Hughes Hughes. 

If you are reading this an asking what are the Harmony Charter Schools? Below is a great video by Frank Gaffney founder of the (Center for Security Policy) as he works within his own community to stop the Gulen movment in Loudoun Virginia. Harmony is the name for the Gulen/Cosmos Foundation schools in Texas. In other states they go by different names. “

 

List of Gulen Charter Schools in the United States

 

An example of what results is Texas Senate Bill 2 currently working its way through the Texas Legislature.  Some of the heroes on exposing CSCOPE are now pushing a bill that completely opens the door for the Gulen Charter Schools to come into Texas in mass numbers.

Below is a breakdown of Senate Bill 2.

Senate bill 2 is a comprehensive overhaul of the laws that govern charter schools.  Changes are made on the authorizing, governing, and establishing of charter schools in Texas.

Looking at the bill, there were a lot of areas of concern, given the recent experience on CScope in Texas.

 

  • The current laws cap the number of charter schools in Texas at 215.  The cap is entirely removed.

 

  • A new governing board of 7 appointees will be the only oversight of these schools.  The State Board of Education will have no authority to grant or revoke charter school privileges in this state.  This puts us back in the position of non-elected officials in charge of the education.

 

  • If there are any vacant or underutilized facilities in a school district, the ISD “shall” lease that taxpayer funded facility to any approved charter school that wants it.  Note the word in the bill is shall (a mandate) rather than the word “may” (which is a choice).

 

  • First time charter schools will be granted a license to operate for a term of 5 years.  It will automatically renew at that point for 20 years.  Most of the Harmony/ Gulen charter schools (currently under question) will fall in the 20 year category.

 

  • The TEA will be required to post all vacant or underutilized facilities for all to see.  For organized charter efforts underway, it will be easy to snap up these facilities all over the state.

 

  • No new charter will have to pay rent or purchase the facility.  They pay $1.

 

  • The license of a charter school can be revoked by the newly formed commission only under the following circumstance:

a.  The school performs badly in 3 out of 5 years
b.  The school is not fiscally satisfactory on multiple reviews

 

Questions to ask…..

1. Why are non- elected officials being put in charge without public accountability?
2.  Why a 20 year renewal?
3.  Shouldn’t we worry about enormous expansion of schools of any type without input?
4.  What if the curriculum is found to be offensive?
5.  Why is our state funding for-profit enterprises?

The Education Committee on SB 2 (Senator Dan Patrick) concerning Charter Schools is considering what to do.  They must hear from you. ASAP The committee members are:

Chair: Sen. Dan Patrick   512) 463-0107
Vice Chair: Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr.  (512) 463-0127
Members: Sen. Donna Campbell  512) 463-0125
Sen. Robert Duncan  (512) 463-0128
Sen. Kel Seliger  (512) 463-0131
Sen. Larry Taylor  (512) 463-0111
Sen. Leticia Van de Putte  (512) 463-0126
Sen. Royce West  (512) 463-0123

 

Below are charter school safeguards that have been proposed by various experts.

1. That a financial audit conducted under generally accepted accounting practices by an independent, reputable auditor be required – and publicly available – from any charter school operator applying for bond guarantees or other financial incentives;

2. That the name, address, and citizenship of all board members and key administrators applying for said guarantee(s) or other financial incentives issued by the state be recorded and made available to the public;

3. That the funds in the underlying bonds or other financial incentives to privately owned, publicly financed schools are to be used solely for schools within Texas;

4. Severe criminal penalties for fraudulent activities involving bond guarantees or other financial incentives issued by states – such as a Class 2 Felony for criminal or securities fraud violations.

===================

Below Safeguards proposed in the 82nd Legislative Session in Texas but that the Texas Legislature did not pass:

1.  Proof of U. S. citizenship for all charter school operator board members and top five highest-paid administrators. (Public ISD trustees must be U. S. citizens.)

2.  Names, titles, and biographies posted online for all charter operator board members and top five highest-paid administrators.

3.  Check registers posted online. (It is estimated that over 70 % of local ISD dollars are online.)

 

Why did these safeguards not pass? Because the elected officials were beholden to the lobby groups in Austin vs the people who elected them as their Representatives.

Community Conversation Town Hall on
Education in America!
Have you read Michelle Malkin’s series on the Rotten to the Core, Part III: Lessons from Texas and the Growing Grassroots Revolt? We highly recommend you read these articles and then join us on the Community Conversation presented by Women On The Wall tomorrow night at 7:30 pm CST.

The call in number is (714) 242-5220  

Or click below to listen online. Community Conversation by Women On the Wall

We are excited to have Mary Bowen a “30 yr. Texas school teacher who has thrown off her cloak of anonymity and is speaking openly about CSCOPE because she is afraid its curriculum will be whitewashed and recycled instead of kicked out of Texas schools. We will also have on the call Janice VanCleave a retired Science teacher who has been traveling across the state with her daughter Ginger Russell exposing what is actually in CSCOPE.  In addition, at 7:30 just prior to Mary and Janice we will have JoAnn Fleming on the call to discuss how CSCOPE has negatively effected her area locally especially within the Black and Hispanic community.

Lake Dallas, CSCOPE crowd shot
Last Thursday we had a situation in Lake Dallas, Texas where CSCOPE apologists showed up in mass numbers all wearing Green ready to defend CSCOPE and take on Women On The Wall. They accomplished their goal as typically is done in the community organizing world of education. They actually reserved the room right after our program was scheduled so they could present their power point program to anyone who came.   We have to give them credit, as usual they brought in people from out of town to show they had numbers behind them and over ran the meeting. But now we are taking the issue step by step and breaking it down on the Community Conversation call tomorrow night at 7:30 pm CST. You don’t want to miss it.  In preparation for the call tomorrow night watch the short video below of the Senate hearing in Austin on Jan. 31.
CSCOPE Senate Hearing
This was going to be shown at the Lake Dallas meeting and we were not able to show it.
You can also listen to the audio below of the CSCOPE apologist presentation. On the community call tomorrow we will be taking on the issue point by point and go through the Lake Dallas audio addressing each one of their talking points. We believe this will be invaluable information as you take on this issue locally. In addition it will be a wealth of information for those of you in other states who are taking on Common Core as they are closely aligned via Linda Darling Hammond. Find out here the connecting dots of Common Core, CSCOPE and the Gulen Charter Schools. 
Lake Dallas CSCOPE Meeting We know that in Texas we can not depend on the Legislature to take care of the CSCOPE issue even though many are working hard to do just that. This battle must be fought and won at the local level. Just like Common Core. In order to do this time is of the essence.Many districts are in the process of deciding if they are going to renew their CSCOPE contracts for the next school year. Now is the time for you to get educated on the issue, go to your school board meetings and demand that CSCOPE be removed from your district.

Get on the Community Conversation Conference call tomorrow night and get the talking points to take to your local school board.

Check out what Bill Hussey from Llano, Texas put out!!
CSCOPE REVEALED

CSCOPE, the controversial Texas school curriculum in over 70% of Texas school districts, was never field tested, reviewed or approved by the Texas State Board of Education. We now know through independent research, that these lessons and the CSCOPE process are based on the ideology of Marxism (Lev Vygotsky), Humanism (Linda-Darling Hammond) and Socialism (Learning through Social Constructivism). These were a few of the people who helped develop CSCOPE. Lessons with anti-American and anti-Christian slants have been discovered.
This is how CSCOPE is hurting your children:

Through Social Constructivism (Group sharing of work and grades)
1.      It removes the importance of individual merit and responsibility
2.      It downplays the importance of authority (parents and professionals) and experts
3.      It removes the security of well-defined expectations
4.      It redefines truth and facts (any answer is acceptable)
5.      It emphasizes education equity (outcome the same for all) instead of opportunity equity

Through the implementation of tests not aligned with required lessons:
1.       It provides a high stressful atmosphere in anticipation of failure
2.      When tests are repeated and answers given prior to test it promotes delayed responsibility and acceptance of cheating
3.      It promotes acceptance of substandard performances when failure is the norm.

Through the implementation of multiple classroom observances (3 minute walk-throughs ) by administrators
1.      It promotes the atmosphere that administrators do not trust the child’s teacher; so something is wrong to the child/student-models disrespect to the teacher
2.      It Interrupts the learning atmosphere of the classroom (highly distracting to ADHD children)
3.      When teachers quickly shift from what works to the rigid ineffective CSCOPE stance expecting a walkthrough, the students can sense an air of deception.

Through the implementation of substandard CSCOPE lessons
1.      It “LEAVES OUT geography, vocabulary development, cursive, spelling, grammar, systemic reading instruction, memorization of multiplication facts, and the skill practice needed for students to gain confidence.”      (Source: Teacher’s statement before the State Board of Education, emphasis added)
2.      It downplays the importance of vetted textbooks and homework

CALL YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD REPRESENTATIVE AND ASK THESE QUESTIONS:
1.      Were you fully informed about the radical ideology and methodology of CSCOPE before you voted to implement it?
2.      Were you shown field-tested results of CSCOPE before you voted to implement it?
3.      Are you going to request a local review before the next vote to renew it?
4.      What steps must I do to opt out of CSCOPE and put my child in a direct-learning environment?

Call your state representatives and demand that CSCOPE receive a total review of ideology, methodology, financial impropriety, possible plagiarism, and misrepresentation to local school boards.
Your children, grandchildren and community need your action.

In November 2005, Rebecca co-founded the Immigration Reform Coalition of Texas (“IRCOT’) which represented the first organized network of the three (3) key immigration groups in Texas.  During the 2007, 2009, and 2011 Texas sessions the organization brought in national expert witnesses from as far away as Washington, D. C. to testify on behalf of IRCOT at various public hearings on key immigration legislation supported by the organization and helped to coordinate citizen lobbying efforts.

After five (5) years in the leadership role of IRCOT, she left to form the Texas Alliance for America Legal Defense & Education Fund (“TAALDEF”) a 501(c)(3) Texas tax deductible non-profit  which was designed to help counter the large grant-funded open-border groups such as MAALDEF and La Raza.

Rebecca speaks publicly throughout Texas to educate the public on the truth about the many dangers that threaten the safety and prosperity of America and its children.

The Devil in the Details of Comprehensive Immigration Reform

February 27, 2013

Caution, Illegal Immigration

Odd that if you repeat something enough, people actually start believing it despite facts that prove the opposite is actually true.

Since the election of President Barrack Obama, Americans have witnessed this phenomenon on a grand scale.  Day after day, we’ve watched the main stream media join in lock step with the current administration to bring about the total transformation of our nation.

Most disturbing is the determination by some Republicans to grant amnesty, legal status and a pathway to citizenship to millions of uneducated and undereducated illegal aliens.  The end result of such action will turn our formerly exceptional nation into a North American version of neighboring Third World countries.

Hours after Romney’s defeat in 2012 the main stream media tossed out the poisonous bait to the GOP leadership and they swallowed it – hook, line and sinker.  The bait is the great lie that America is unable to secure its borders or enforce its long standing immigration laws so American citizens must shut their mouths and witness their nation’s “inevitable changing demographics.”  Inevitable?  Only if our government continues down the path it is on – allowing the unarmed invasion that has been going on now for several decades.

America possesses not only the right but also the knowledge and technology to stop this nonsense immediately IF only our elected officials have the backbone and desire to speak the truth and act accordingly.   Do they?

Many Republican party elites, party leaders (at all levels), and big business owners/donors jumped on the Democrat amnesty bandwagon to give 11, 20, or 30+ million illegal aliens residing in our country legal status and a pathway to citizenship.  The truth is that those numbers will be much greater when chain migration is factored in.

So who is leading this insane suicide mission the GOP has launched?  

At the front of the pack are corporations and “Big Business” — more specifically, Republicans who got their tail ends handed to them in 2007 when the grassroots successfully rose up and killed President Bush’s attempt to force “comprehensive immigration reform” upon rule-of-law American citizens.

Since that 2007 defeat the group has been working overtime to convince lesser informed party voters and GOP leaders (at all levels) that the party must abandon its traditional Republican rule-of-law stance on immigration in order to win the Hispanic/Latino vote and future elections.  Few seem to know that the facts do not support that line of thought.

U.S. census stats reveal that the majority of our illegal aliens come from countries south of our border.   While immigrants from other parts of the world tend to vote Democrat once granted American citizenship, a review of Hispanic/Latino voting patterns is vital in relation to predicted demographic shifts in America and upcoming election outcomes.

To those who have been following this debate and reviewing the facts about voting patterns of Hispanics/Latinos in America over the past 32 years it is hard to call the actions of the Republican leadership anything other than utterly stupid.

Since it seems many people in our nation appear to lack common sense when it comes to critical thinking, rule-of-law Americans across the nation should be asking the following two common sense questions as they consider and discuss this extremely serious issue:

First, if there was any remote possibility that the proposed amnestied 11 – 30+ million illegal aliens would EVER vote for Republicans do you honestly think the Democrats would be working so hard to give them amnesty and eventually the right to vote?

Secondly, why would any dedicated Republican Party leader support an action that ultimately would deliver millions of new Democrat voters for decades to come while perpetuating Republican defeats?

Obviously, the Democrats would not be working so hard to give legal status/path to citizenship/amnesty or anything else to 11 – 30+ million new people if they were in any way inclined to become Republican voters!  Hello Republicans – anyone home?

The facts clearly show that America’s Hispanic/Latino general and immigrant populations vote DEMOCRAT – not Republican.   Historically speaking, that fact has nothing to do with the stance of the Republican Party on immigration.

Statistics on voting patterns compiled by the Pew Hispanic Center, the Center for Immigration Studies and others have provided compelling data that should sound the alarm bell for Republicans across the nation.

The following excerpts from a November 8, 2012 Center for Immigration Studies article by Ronald W. Mortensen, entitled “Hispanics Were Democrats Long Before Illegal Immigration Became an Issue”  should give one reason to wonder who is doing the homework for the GOP on this issue:

“… pro-illegal-immigrant elements of the Republican Party fail to acknowledge that for at least the last nine elections, Hispanics have voted heavily in favor of Democratic presidential candidates over Republican candidates by an average of 64 percent to 31 percent, as shown by data compiled by the Pew Hispanic Center.”

Year Democrat Republican
1980/Reagan/Carter) 56% 35%
1984 (Reagan/Mondale) 61% 37%
1988 (Bush/Dukakis) 69% 30%
1992 (Bush/Clinton) 61% 25%
1996 (Dole/Clinton) 72% 21%
2000 (Bush/Gore) 62% 35%
2004 (Bush/Kerry) 58% 40%
2008 (Obama/McCain) 67% 31%
2012 (Obama/Romney) 71% 27%
Average 64% 31%

Article excerpts provide additional insight on several of the referenced elections in response to a Wall Street Journal article absurdly suggesting Romney lost the 2012 election because of his stance on illegal immigration:

 “The expulsion crowd at the Journal never acknowledges the fact that pro-amnesty, “comprehensive immigration reform” leader John McCain (R-Ariz.), was rejected by 67 percent of Hispanic voters, that 72 percent of Hispanics voted against Bob Dole, that 69 percent voted against the elder Bush and that 62 percent voted against the younger Bush. So, it could be argued that Romney’s “tough” illegal immigration stance cost him only 4 percentage points of the Hispanic vote as opposed to that of McCain and that he actually picked up 6 points over Dole and 2 points more than Bush senior did.

“The bottom line is that Hispanics are largely Democrats and they don’t swing their support to pro-illegal-immigration Republicans such as McCain and or even to Bush senior, who was vice president at the time of the 1986 amnesty”.

 “In fact, after the 1986 amnesty was signed by President Reagan, the Hispanic vote for the Democratic presidential candidate (Michael Dukakis) in the next election increased by 8 percent. After McCain attempted to push through another amnesty, Hispanic support for the Democratic candidate (Barrack Obama) in the next presidential election increased by 9 percent over that received by John Kerry in the previous presidential election.”

Still have  doubt as to the  likelihood of future massive declines in Republican Party victories should another amnesty pass?   If so I encourage you to read an article entitled,  “Immigration, Political Realignment, and the Demise of Republican Political Prospects” by James G. Gimpel.

It certainly appears that many “Big Business” Republicans and GOP leaders could care less about the America they leave to our children and grandchildren.  If they did, they would be leading the charge for America to choose the best and brightest immigrants for legal and orderly entry into our nation.  Instead, they are doing the exact opposite.

If you value the America you grew up in do your homework and Seek the Truth on the issue of illegal immigration.   Then … Share the Truth with you friends, neighbors, elected officials, b­­­­­­­­­usiness owners and anyone else who will listen.  Last but not least … continue to Stand for Truth and pray God gives us the strength to prevail in the battle for America’s survival.

Connecting the Dots… Common Core Curriculum ~ CSCOPE and the Gulen/Charter Public Schools

Below is a series of short videos that will explain what the Common Core Curriculum is, who owns it and the threat it is to the United States. Notice Common Core is referenced in Michelle Malkin’s lastest  article which I highly recommend that you take the time to read. Rotten to the Core, Part III: Lessons from Texas and the Growing Grassroots Revolt

You have to also understand the connection between Common Core and the Texas CSCOPE online technology curriculum that is getting national attention. In the video linked above Jane Robins with the American Principles Project explains who Linda Darling Hammond is. 

One of the key influencers on the developers of Common Core is Linda Darling Hammond.

The developers of CSCOPE  reference Linda Darling Hammond as professional developer in their materials.

 Below will explain why the Common Core/CSCOPE opens the door for the Gulen Charter School and brings forward a major National Security Threat. 

Photo By New YorK Times Click Photo to linked article.

Because we are taking on the public schools parents are looking for other avenues to educate their children. Many who can’t afford private schools (even though private schools use CommonCore and CSCOPE) run to charter schools. Who by the way target the lower income hispanic and black community.

By promoting Charter School legislation some elected officials see a way to get votes and stay in their positions of power. Which gives them the opportunity to move to higher office. In addition it opens the door to raise huge campaign donations from charter school lobbies such as the Cosmos Foundation/Harmony/Gulen Science Centers who are giving free all expense paid trips to legislators in Texas and across the country and whose consultant was former executive director of the Republican Party and trusted advisor to President George W. Bush, Karen Hughes Hughes. 

 Just to be clear, I am not against all Charter Schools. I firmly believe we must put in safe guards first before passing comprehensive Charter School legislation and hold elected officials accountable for the legislation they put forward which may pose a true National Security threat to our nation.

If you are reading this and asking what are the Harmony Charter Schools? Below is a great video by Frank Gaffney founder of the (Center for Security Policy) as he works within his own community to stop the Gulen movment in Loudoun Virginia. Harmony is the name for the Gulen/Cosmos Foundation schools in Texas. In other states they go by different names. “

 

List of Gulen Charter Schools in the United States

An example of what results is Texas Senate Bill 2 currently working its way through the Texas Legislature.  Some of the heroes on exposing CSCOPE are now pushing a bill that completely opens the door for the Gulen Charter Schools to come into Texas in mass numbers.

Below is a breakdown of  Texas Senate Bill 2. 

 

Senate bill 2 is a comprehensive overhaul of the laws that govern charter schools.  Changes are made on the authorizing, governing, and establishing of charter schools in Texas.

Looking at the bill, there were a lot of areas of concern, given the recent experience with CScope in Texas.

  • The current laws cap the number of charter schools in Texas at 215.  The cap is entirely removed.
  • A new governing board of 7 appointees will be the only oversight of these schools.  The State Board of Education will have no authority to grant or revoke charter school privileges in this state.  This puts us back in the position of non-elected officials in charge of the education.
  • If there are any vacant or underutilized facilities in a school district, the ISD “shall” lease that taxpayer funded facility to any approved charter school that wants it.  Note the word in the bill is shall (a mandate) rather than the word “may” (which is a choice).
  • First time charter schools will be granted a license to operate for a term of 5 years.  It will automatically renew at that point for 20 years.  Most of the Harmony/ Gulen charter schools (currently under question) will fall in the 20 year category.
  • The TEA will be required to post all vacant or underutilized facilities for all to see.  For organized charter efforts underway, it will be easy to snap up these facilities all over the state.
  • No new charter will have to pay rent or purchase the facility.  They pay $1.
  • The license of a charter school can be revoked by the newly formed commission only under the following circumstance:

      a.  The school performs badly in 3 out of 5 years
b.  The school is not fiscally satisfactory on multiple reviews

 

Questions to ask…..

1. Why are non- elected officials being put in charge without public accountability?
2.  Why a 20 year renewal?
3.  Shouldn’t we worry about enormous expansion of schools of any type without input?
4.  What if the curriculum is found to be offensive?
5.  Why is our state funding for-profit enterprises?

Women On the Wall will be taking on this issue and sharing information and updates on our weekly radio show on Monday mornings at 10 am CST. You will not want to miss this show. We will have up to date information on CSCOPE  and guests who are the experts on education and other issues that are effecting our children and grandchildren.

“Border Folly” – A National Security Threat

Lisa Benson on National Security and Illegal Immigration

Written by: Lisa E. BensonFebruary 18, 2013 

Phoenix, Arizona…

As I reported this past Saturday on KKNT 960 AM – Salem Communications – local ranchers are seeing an increase in illegal border crossings and not a decrease as stated by President Obama in last week’s State of the Union Address to the nation.

 

Specifically, a local rancher residing south of Sierra Vista, Arizona, claims that through local citizen surveillance, as well as via monitoring the broadcast frequencies of US Border Patrol agents, it is estimated that there are more than 1,000 illegal crossings a night.  The most obtrusive illegal crossings are happening west of Nogales, Arizona.

 

Moreover, there is a steady influx of Chinese crossing the border illegally. As recently as six nights ago, a group of Chinese were picked up, per the ranchers interception of border patrol communications. Without the interception, we would have never known.

 

With a 2,000 stretch of mutual border with Mexico, the ranchers assert that more than 75% of the border is porous — as evidenced in the picture above, unless a border agent is standing over every square mile of the mutual border, it is impossible to monitor solely with border agents.

 

Per Judicial Watch…

 

…U.S. Border Patrol estimates that three out of four illegal crossings EVADE apprehension.

 

Mr. President, We Demand A Secure Border:

 

As the hot potato issue of immigration reform heats up on Congress, we must

 

DEMAND CONGRESS DEFINE WHAT IS BORDER SECURITY

and tackle border security before comprehensive immigration reform

Difficult to ask when our elected officials want the votes of those they give amnesty to and that includes both political parties.

 

As I wrote in my newsletter, “Houston, We Have A Problem,” there is evidence that there is Iran influence in South America.  Specifically, there is a manned missile base inside of Venezuela.  Security analysts contend that Venezuela may use biological/chemical warheads before they have the full potential to use nuclear.  Hence, US cities are in the direct trajectory.

 

In addition…

As outlined in “A Line In the Sand: Confronting the Threat at the Southwest Border”

 

….and prepared by the Majority Staff of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Michael T. McCaul, Chairman,

 

“Venezuela is providing support — including identity documents — that could prove useful to radical Islamic groups.  The Venezuelan government has issued thousands of cedulas, the equivalent of Social Security cards, to people from places such as Cuba, Columbia, and Middle Eastern nations that host foreign terrorist organizations.  The U.S. officials believe that the Venezuelan government is issuing the documents to people who should not be getting them and that some of these cedulas could be subsequently used to obtain Venezuelan passports and even American visas, which could allow the holder to elude immigration checks and enter the United States.”

 

Further:

“Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela, has been clearly talking to Iran about uranium,” said a senior administration official. Chavez has made several trips to Iran to foster his solidarity with Iran’s hard-line mullahs.

 

Taking this one step further:

In my radio interview linked below, I point out that Iran’s Asian strategy centers on China. Over the past decade, China’s tremendous economic growth (averaging 8% a year) has generated a voracious appetite for energy.  According to informed estimates, in the coming decade, China could surpass the United States as the world’s largest oil consumer.  Iran plays a key role in China’s energy fortunes; supplying 12% of China’s total imports.

 

Moving this right along…

 

Iranian and Chinese collaboration extends beyond energy resources.  China has long assisted Iran in the defense arena, serving as an early supplier to Iran’s nuclear program and more recently as a contributor to the regime’s military modernization efforts during the early 2000′s.  Between the cozy relationship Iran has with North Korea and China, nuclear proliferation is impossible to stop — certainly sanctions are too weak to cripple this aggressive axis of evil.

 

So, what does this have to do with South America and Chinese Crossing the Border

border train

Trains from Central America and Mexico en route to the U.S. border

 

Frankly, it is unclear who and why the Chinese are crossing into the U.S. illegally.  Maybe they are doing so because they can …or maybe…they cannot come legally because they are unable to obtain visas due to criminal activity and/or they are on a U.S. terrorist watch list.  It is obvious by the aerial photos of trains of illegals making their way to the US border that a few Islamists or Chinese would blend in with the overall population crossing illegally.

Calling on Texas Patriots to Help #StopGulen in Loudoun, Virginia

Tomorrow night, Tues. Feb. 19th is a big meeting and we need all hands on deck to help parents in Loudoun, Virginia Stop the Gulen Network from infiltrating.  Why would we help folks in Virginia – because we know and understand the threat of a slow creeping jihad in America, we have fought back against the Race to the Top in Texas and we must stand together with fellow Americans to fight back.

Gulen in Loudoun  Why    Gulen Wants Loudoun s Money  Why

So here is your call to Action: Read the Background and be ready tomorrow night online in Texas and across the country by reading the call to action below the Background.

 

Loudoun County (VA) Gulen school meeting
Parents for Educational Accountability
 Invites you to a Critical Briefing:
“Will LMITA Repeat the History of Other Gulen-Related Charter Schools ?”
Remarks by Mary Addi, A Former Gulen Charter School Teacher

Featuring Information that County Residents and their Elected
Representatives Must Know About
 The Applicants, Their Associations and Other Reasons Why the Loudoun Math and IT Academy (LMITA) Application Should be Rejected
When:  Tuesday, February 19, 2013
following the end of the public comment portion of the School Board’s Final Public Hearing on the LMITA Application (which starts at 6:30 p.m.)
Where:  Room 100 A, Loudoun County Schools Administration Building
21000 Education Ct., Ashburn, VA
Sponsored by Center for Security Policy

Background

group of Turkish-Americans, led by Fatih Kandil, an educator with extensive experience in the Gulen network, have filed an application to tap into Loudoun County and Virginia State education funding. In addition, they appear to have their eyes on the Obama Education Department’s “Race to the Top” funding for charter schools.
This is the second attempt by a group of Turkish-Americans to apply to receive government funding for a charter school in Loudoun County.

A detailed chart, linking the Loudoun Turkish applicants to the Gulen network is here: Fatih Kandil’s Direct Links to Gulen

Why Loudoun?

Loudoun County, Virginia is one of America’s wealthiest counties. Our school system is second to none. We have access to two extremely fine Science and Technology academic programs–Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ, a Virginia State Governors School), and Loudoun’s own Academy of Science. In addition, Loudoun’s high schools all offer Advanced Placement and other challenging curriculum.

TJ consistently ranks as the top, or at least in the top three to five high schools in the nation. AOS provides an excellent science-based high school education to Loudoun high schoolers. Both these schools feature competitive entrance, and have demonstrated their proficiency at producing high-achieving graduates who go on to the finest universities.

Loudoun’s regular high schools offer a full array of science,technology and math challenges that are top notch. Our students consistently ace the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests for all math and science classes.

Our current school administration, the School Board and the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) staff, along with our teachers and administrators provide a smorgasbord of services that is unrivaled across the country, and internationally. Every classroom has a smart boardTechnology is available for every student to use. Lessons across the curriculum in every high school are fullly integrated with use of technology.

LCPS high schools include the Governors Career and Technical Academy, based in the LCPS Monroe Technology Center. Many programs at Monroe Technology Center (MTC), which houses the Governor’s Career and Technical Academy of Loudoun, have science, technology, engineering and/or math imbedded into their curriculums.

What school system did the Gulen charter school applicants think they were applying for? A rural district in a less-developed state? Their proposal to better serve the needs of Loudoun’s students for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is laughable on its face.

What is it that the Turkish education community believes they have to offer Loudoun County?

Or is the attraction what Loudoun County has to offer them? Continue readinghere. 

Call to ACTION: We will be following what is happening at the meeting tomorrow evening via Twitter. Please join us in retweeting using the hashtag#StopGulen. Join us also by posting on Facebook.

Texas Legislators, just scan through this article; and you will see why Common Core Standards is interested in buying CSCOPE.  All that would then need to be done is to add links to CSCOPE (if they are not already there) that would take public school students throughout this country (including Texas) to the various pro-Muslim/Islamist entities listed in this article. This is just another reason why CSCOPE and all of its content must be open to the public to try to protect our children from indoctrination “at the click of a mouse.” – Donna Garner 

 

WND EXCLUSIVE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD GROUP TO ‘CONNECT ALL U.S. SCHOOLS’

Partners with State, Education departments on international initiative

Published: 1.23.13

by AARON KLEIN

 

JERUSALEM – A Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization has partnered with the U.S. Department of Education and the State Department to facilitate an online program aiming to connect all U.S. schools with classrooms abroad by 2016.

 

Vartan Gregorian, a board member of the organization, the Qatar Foundation International, was appointed in 2009 to President Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission.

 

WND previously exposed that Gregorian served as a point man in granting $49.2 million in startup capital to an education-reform project founded by former Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers and chaired by Obama.

Documentation shows Gregorian was central in Ayers’ recruitment of Obama to serve as the first chairman of the project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge – a job in which Obama worked closely on a regular basis with Ayers.

Obama also later said his job at the project qualified him to run for public office, as WND previously reported.

Connecting schools to fulfill Obama pledge

The Qatar Foundation International, or QFI, in 2011 partnered with the Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate matchmaking between classrooms in the U.S. and international schools through something called the “Connect All Schools” project.

QFI, funded by the Qatari government, explains on its website the initiative was founded in response to Obama’s call in his June 2009 speech to the Arab world in Cairo, Egypt, to “create a new online network, so a young person in Kansas can communicate instantly with a young person in Cairo.”

 

QFI relates how more than 100 U.S. schools and organizations have already connected on the interactive website.

The stated goal of the initiative is to “connect every school in the U.S. with the world by 2016.”

This is not the QFI’s first foray into the U.S. education system.

WND reported last May the Qatar-based foundation awarded “Curriculum Grants” to seven U.S. schools and language organizations to “develop comprehensive and innovative curricula and teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom.”

QFI, based in Washington, D.C., is the U.S. branch of the Qatar Foundation, founded in 1995 by Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.

Thani is still the group’s vice-chairman, while one of his three wives, Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, chairs the organization’s board.

Thani also launched Al Jazeera in 1996 and served as the television network’s chairman.

The Qatar foundation is close to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In January 2012, it launched the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics under the guidance of Tariq Ramadan, who serves as the center’s director.

Ramadan is the grandson of the notorious founder of the Muslim Brotherhood,Hassan al Banna. Ramadan was banned from the U.S. until 2010 when the Obama administration issued him a visa to give a lecture at a New York school.

QFI, meanwhile, named several institutions after Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the top leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. Many regard Qaradawi as the de facto spiritual leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.

The foundation instituted the Sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi Scholarships and in 2009 established a research center named the Qaradawi Center for Islamic Moderation and Renewal.

Qaradawi has personally attended scores of foundation events, including conferences at which he served as a keynote speaker.

Qaradawi achieved star status because of his regular sermons and interviews on Al Jazeera.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism documents Qardawi openly permitted the killing of American troops in Iraq and praised the “heroic deeds” of “Hamas, Jihad, Al-Aqsa Brigades and others.”

Obama, Ayers connection

Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corp. charitable foundation, was appointed by Obama in 2009 as a White House fellow. Born in Tabriz, Iran, Gregorian served for eight years as president of the New York Public Library and was also president of Brown University.

As Brown president, Gregorian served on the selection committee of the Annenberg Foundation, which funded Ayers’ Chicago Annenberg Challenge with a $49.2 million, 2-to-1 matching challenge grant over five years. Ayers was one of five founding members of the Annenberg Challenge who wrote to the Annenberg Foundation for the initial funding.

Steve Diamond, a political-science and law professor and a blogger who has posted on Obama, previously posted a letter from Nov. 18, 1994, in whichGregorian, serving as the point man on Annenberg’s selection committee, asked Ayers to “compose the governing board” of the Challenge’s collaborative project with “people who reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of Chicago.”

Ayers and other founding Challenge members then recruited Obama to serve as the project chairman.

WND was first to expose that Obama and Ayers used the project grant money to fund organizations run by radicals tied to Ayers, including Mike Klonsky, a former top communist activist who was a senior leader in the Students for a Democratic Society group, a major leftist student organization in the 1960s from which the Weathermen terror group later splintered.

National Review Online writer Stanley Kurtz examined the project archives housed at the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago, finding Obama and Ayers worked closely at the project.

The documents obtained by Kurtz showed Ayers served as an ex-officio member of the board that Obama chaired through the project’s first year. Ayers also served on the board’s governance committee with Obama and worked with him to craft project bylaws, according to the documents.

Ayers made presentations to board meetings chaired by Obama. Ayers also spoke for the Chicago School Reform Collaborative before Obama’s board, while Obama periodically spoke for the board at meetings of the collaborative, the project documents reviewed by Kurtz show.

WND reported Obama and Ayers also served together on the board of the Woods Fund, a liberal Chicago nonprofit that granted money to far-left causes.

One of the groups funded by the Woods Fund was the Midwest Academy, an activist organization modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.

WND reported Jackie Kendall, executive director of the Midwest Academy, was on the team that developed and delivered the first Camp Obama training for volunteers aiding Obama’s campaign through the 2008 Iowa Caucuses.

Camp Obama was a two- to four-day intensive course run in conjunction with Obama’s campaign aimed at training volunteers to become activists to help Obama win the presidential election.

Obama scholar linked to ‘Ground Zero’ imam

 

Meanwhile, WND reported Gregorian is closely tied to the Muslim leaders behind the controversial Islamic cultural center to be built near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Gregorian also serves on the board of the Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum. The museum is reportedly working with the American Society for Muslim Advancement, whose leaders are behind the mosque, to ensure the future museum will represent the voices of American Muslims.

“[The Sept. 11 museum will represent the] voices of American Muslims in particular, and it will honor members of other communities who came together in support and collaboration with the Muslim community on September 11 and its aftermath,” stated Daisy Khan, executive director of the society.

The Sept. 11 museum’s oral historian, Jenny Pachucki, is collaborating with the society to ensure the perspective of American Muslims is woven into the overall experience of the museum, according to the museum’s blog.

Khan’s husband, Feisal Abdul Rauf, is the founder of the society as well as chairman of Cordoba Initiative, which is behind the proposed mosque to be built about two blocks from the area referred to as Ground Zero.

With Gregorian at its helm, Carnegie Corp. is at the top of the list of society supporters on the Islamic group’s website.

Carnegie is also listed as a funder of both of the society’s partner organizations, Search for Common Ground and the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations. Gregorian was a participant in the U.N. body’s first forum, as was Rauf.

Rauf is vice chairman on the board of the Interfaith Center of New York, which honored Gregorian at an awards dinner in 2008.

World domination

Gregorian is the author of “Islam: A Mosaic, Not A Monolith.” According to a book review by the Middle East Forum, his book “establishes the Islamist goal of world domination.”

A chapter of the book, “Islamism: Liberation Politics,” quotes Ayatollah Khomeini: “Islam does not conquer. Islam wants all countries to become Muslim, of themselves.” Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, is quoted stating it “is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its laws on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

Gregorian himself recommends for Muslims a system he calls “theo-democracy,” which he defines as “a divine democratic government” that, according to the book review, “would have a limited popular sovereignty under the suzerainty of Allah.”

Chuck Hagel: An Idiotic Choice? No, A Tactical Maneuver

Chuck Hagel and George Soros

Published By:  Lisa Benson –National Security Consultant, Analyst, Public Speaker, NS Fundraiser

Neoconservative backers of the Iraq War have long had issues with Chuck Hagel, President Barack Obama’s choice for Secretary of Defense (OSD).  Of all the stories floating around about the nomination of Chuck Hagel, his involvement with the George Soros — Obama’s Boss — and the devil incarnate is the most insidious in my opinion.

Hagel has a long-standing feud with Lindsey Graham and John McCain over breaking away from supporting the Iraqi war.  However, as much as I am reading that Obama’s choice for OSD is to exasperate a rift within the Republican establishment, I am inclined to believe that the purpose is broader, more sweeping and more serious than just what the mainstream media is reporting.

In my opinion, if we activists and national security/Pro-Israel policy hawks focus on the minutia of Hagel’s remarks regarding Israel, we will certainly lose any effort to thwart his appointment.

This appointment can only be stopped in its tracks if our elected officials get to the root of the problem: the overarching agenda of this administration and those who support it.

The “paymaster of the Democratic Party” is behind this nomination; the man who is responsible for many of the problems that beset the west. GEORGE SOROS

Much is written about Soros and his communist connections beginning when he fled Hungry in 1946.  He made exits through major Soviet check points even when others could not. He traded currencies on the black market during Hitler’s occupation in Hungary and started a banking enterprise, worldwide.  Much is written, spoken and debated about the Soros plan for a “one world order” and his communist connections.

The Obama “brain trust” includes the likes of George Soros, John Podesta (who managed the Obama transition team in 2008), Gary Hart, Mike Allen, Brent Scowcroft and Thomas Pickering.

This week we learned that the Obama “brain trust,” with the financial backing of George Soros, hired the brother of John Podesta – Tony Podesta – of the elite lobbying firm THE PODESTA GROUP, Washington, D.C. to take up the Hagel cause.  In short order: the Podesta firm has been hired to influence defense contractors to finance, promote ads and back Chuck Hagel.  By “influence” I mean “support or lose your government defense contracts” is the not so subtle innuendo.   Financed lobbying effort by George Soros.

What IS very concerning to me is the involvement of notorious Communist, George Soros in the nomination of Chuck Hagel.

As someone said to me today, ”Soros is as Jewish as Hitler was a Christian.”

Everything George Soros involves himself with is to promote a Progressive, Socialist, Communist reformist agenda, including his backing of Chuck Hagel.

…And What About the Deutsche Bank?

Hagel was appointed in 2009 to Deutsche Bank’s Americas Advisory Board. The PAID position placed him in close contact with the bank’s senior leadership.

Here is the clincher and a jaw dropping revelation:

Germany’s Deutsche Bank is reportedly being probed by U.S. authorities for VIOLATING the trade embargo on Iran’s oil and energy sector, which is believed to play a key role in Tehran’s nuclear enrichment program.

Much of this information regarding Deutsche Bank can be read in THE WASHTINGTON FREE BEACON.  However, the George Soros promotion of Hagel is hardly spoken.

Most recently, and in my opinion, seriously concerning, is evidence of Hagel as an IRANIAN APOLOGIST, as an opponent of sanctions or strong policy against a nuclear Iran.  His appointment continues the Obama administration’s weak, apologetic and appeasement diplomacy this administration is known for — weak and uninformed is the norm in the Situation Room.  As witnessed by the horrific details emerging regarding Benghazi.

When the nomination for the United States Secretary of Defense merits a press release from the Iranian government, as happened yesterday, applauding the President of the United States for his choice for OSD, everyone needs to take notice — or should take notice.

Summary:

Tony Podesta, THE PODESTA GROUP, tripled its staff three years ago, receives half a million dollars a year from General Dynamics, a military contractor. Brother John is a close ally of President Obama and headed up the Obama transition team in 2008.

We have a Socialist/Communist lead administration, funded by George Soros, making government contract deals with defense contractors. ??????

Some say that George Soros is a pawn for the Obama administration.  I beg to differ.  Soros is the boss and he is dangerously manifesting his “one world order” plan on the backs, and in contrast, to everything this Republic stands for.

“Bye Bye American Pie!”

The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) is the principal staff element of the Secretary of Defense in the exercise of policy development, planning, resource management, fiscal, and program evaluation responsibilities. OSD includes the immediate offices of the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of Defense, Under Secretaries of Defense, Director of Defense Research and Engineering, Assistant Secretaries of Defense, General Counsel, Director of Operational Test and Evaluation, Assistants to the Secretary of Defense, Director of Administration and Management and such other staff offices as the Secretary establishes to assist in carrying out assigned responsibilities.

Hagel, as a “Soros Machine Puppet” will be responsible for every aspect of our nation’s defense, and apparently, George Soros has great influence on the Obama administration and on the policy and direction of the United States.  This, actually makes me shudder.

It is obvious, after conducting this research that Chuck Hagel, if appointed, will be a pawn/ puppet and member of the Soros Machine ready, willing and able and positioned to lead the charge against strong national security policies.  Israel will be hanging out there alone in the Iranian matter.

Finally, I would like to add, if we keep the heat on the Hagel nomination, don’t be so sure that Hagel himself won’t opt out of the appointment.

Is America indirectly funding the rockets and missiles that are being fired into Israel?

MARC KAHLBERG asks this question in his latest article Clinton visits Israel: Where have you been the past 4 years Mrs. Clinton?

“US President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to underscore the necessity of ending Hamas rocket fire into Israel, and to talk about ways to de-escalate the situation. Perhaps someone should remind President Obama who funds the Hamas, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and where a lot of the $360 Million US Dollars are actually going.

Mr. Obama, do you not think that America is indirectly funding the rockets and missiles that are being fired into Israel by the Palestinian terrorists?

When will the US administration understand that the hate generated against Israel is equal to the hate generated against America and all of the values that America stands by?

Why are we elevating the profile of the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader, Morsi as a leader in these talks with Hamas?

MorsiWho is Morsi?

From the Team at Secure America Now– put together an exclusive booklet, compiled from Mohamed Morsi’s very own words, with over a dozen documented sources. The truth is disturbing.

Egpyt’s new Muslim Brotherhood President is a virulent Anti-Semite and militant Islamist. Read and distribute this exclusive file on Morsi, prepared by Secure America Now analysts.

Ask yourself what is the LONG TERM DAMAGE OF THE BENGHAZI BETRAYAL on our Nation?  This issue will not go away after Romney is elected and we must be prepared for another 9-11. At Women On The Wall we understand that we are not going to elect someone to save us, we must save ourselves. In order to do that we must be educated on the issue of National Security so that we do not fall prey to those who do not have the best interest of America at heart.

As a reminder from Michelle Malkin: “Thirteen men and women, plus the unborn child of Pvt. Francheska Velez, died in the bloody terrorist rampage at Fort Hood three years ago today.”

 

Ed Morrissey pointed out on Hot Air.com , Muslim extremist Army Maj. Nidal Hasan has been held for almost three years after shouting “Allahu akbar” and opening fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood … killing 14 and wounding a couple of dozen others. Almost immediately, evidence arose that Hasan had been in contact with the late and unlamented al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki to discuss the legitimacy of conducting jihad within the American military hadn’t intervened prior to the massacre. Most people assumed that was enough to consider the massacre a terrorist attack … but the Obama administration refused to do so then and still refuses to do so – choosing instead to call it … get ready … “workplace violence.” The victims and families of those murdered by Hasan want that changed.

FBI Investigates Islamist Charter School Network

FBI Investigates Islamist Charter School Network

By Arnold Ahlert

If one believes that the battle for the nation’s soul is occurring, not just in Washington, D.C., but in schools across the nation, the steady advance of Turkish-Gulen Charter Schools may be cause for alarm.

Fethullah Gulen on 60 Minutes

Fethullah Gulen is a Turkish Islamic cleric who fled his native country in 1998, after being charged with seeking to overthrow the secular Turkish government. He currently lives in exile at a 28-acre mountain complex in the Pocono Mountains, with more than $25 billion of assets at his command.

The 135 charter schools associated with the Gulen Movement (GM) enroll more than 45,000 students and comprise the largest charter school network in the United States — all of which are fully funded by American taxpayers. Fethullah Gulen has been under investigation by the government since 2011.

That investigation, carried out by FBI and the Departments of Labor and Education, is centered around charter school employees who are allegedly engaged in kicking back part of their salaries to the Muslim movement (known as Hizmet, service to others), founded by Gulen.

Gulen initiated his movement in Izmir, a city on Turkey’s Aegean coast, more than 40 years ago, preaching impassioned sermons to his followers, who may now number as many as six million. In Turkey, the Gulen Movement has been accused of pushing for a hardline Islamic state.

Yet, despite this reality, government officials investigating the kickback scheme are apparently satisfied that there is no religious agenda being disseminated in America. Their investigation is centered around the hundreds of Turkish teachers, administrators and other staffers employed under the H1B visa program, who may or may not be misusing taxpayer money.

This would appear to be a stunningly naive approach to the issue. H1B visas allow U.S. employers to hire foreign workers in specialty occupations on a temporary basis. “Specialty occupations” are defined as “requiring theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge in a field of human endeavor.”

Click Photo for more information from Texas

Gulen schools are among the nation’s largest users of the H1B visas. In 2009, they received government approvals for 684 visas. The Harmony School, a Gulen-related institution, has applied for more H1B visas than any educational institution in the country.

GM officials at some of the charter schools that ostensibly specialize in math and science, claim they need to fill teaching spots with Turkish teachers. At the Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School in State College, Ruth Hocker, former president of the parents’ group, grew suspicious when certified American teachers began to be replaced by uncertified Turks with limited English-speaking skills who, despite that limitation, commanded higher salaries.

Parents pointed out that these uncertified teachers were moved from one charter to another when their “emergency” credentials expired. They also spoke about a pattern of sudden turnovers of Turkish business managers, administrators and board members.

Similar complaints arose in Texas, where it was revealed that hundreds of Turkish teachers and administrators were also working with H1B visas. In addition, the Harmony School group was using taxpayer money to fund Gulen’s movement via school construction and renovation projects.

Despite assertions that the bidding process on those projects was fair, records showed that virtually all of the work has been done by Turkish-owned contractors, according to the New York Times.

A former teacher from Turkey reportedly told the FBI that the Gulen Movement had divided the United States into five regions, with a general manager in each who coordinates the activities of the schools, and related foundations and cultural centers.

All of the above raises the obvious question: If these schools are traditional American charter schools that do nothing more than “follow the state curriculum,” as Tansu Cidav, the acting CEO of the Truebright Science Academy in North Philadelphia contends, why is it necessary to hire foreign teachers and coordinate activities nationwide?

A federal document released in 2011 may provide the answer. It posits that Gulen’s charter schools may in fact be madrassahs, where students are “brain-washed” to serve as proponents of the New Islamic World Order Gulen purportedly seeks to create.

The American Thinker’s Janet Levy takes it one step further. After noting that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan belongs to the AKP political party founded by Gulen upon his arrival in Pennsylvania, she points out that, “Turkey is reverting to its historical Ottoman Empire-inspired Islamic fundamentalism,” even as “it is pursuing a stealth or cultural jihad against the West, in large part through the efforts of Fethullah Gülen, a Turkish Islamic theologian.”

See RadicalIslam.org’s related article Turkey Courting Native Americans in Trojan Horse Bid

In a 1999 video, Gulen himself spoke of a surreptitious plan for taking over the Turkish government: “You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers … until the conditions are ripe … The time is not yet right. You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe, until we can shoulder the entire world and carry it[.]”

The movement is well on its way towards achieving that aim. GM is now active in 140 countries. Aside from its charter school empire, other interests include boarding schools, universities, banks, media companies, newspapers, charities and think tanks.

In a 60 Minutes report, Leslie Stahl was forced to acknowledge that while Gulen “invites conspiracy theories that he’s running Turkey from the Poconos and is bent on global Muslim domination,” his movement “does lack transparency — its funding, hierarchy, and ambitions remain hidden–leading our State Department to wonder in cables between Ankara and Washington if Gulen has an ‘insidious political agenda.’ ”

This is not the first investigation conducted of Gulen’s empire. In 2008, members of the Netherlands’ Christian Democrat, Labor and Conservative parties agreed to cut several million euros in government funding for organizations affiliated with Gulen. An investigation ensued when Erik Jan Zürcher, director of the Amsterdam-based International Institute for Social History, along with five former followers who had worked for Gulen, told Dutch television that the Gulen community was moving step-by-step to topple the secular order.

In Pennsylvania, neighbors of Gulen’s fortress complain of hearing automatic gunfire and the drone of a surveillance helicopter that constantly searches for intruders. One hundred Turkish guards stand watch over the property as well. If this man and his movement–which continues to expand–have nothing to hide, they have a remarkable way of showing it.

As a Turkish observer speaking to the New Republic noted, “No society would tolerate this big of an organization being this untransparent.”

The FBI’s new investigation against Gulen’s organization brings us one step closer to exposing what goes on behind the closed doors of Gulen’s empire.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Citizens Groups Join Pastors to Call on Congresswoman to Apologize

Boots of Liberty Task Force, Local Texas Pastors, and WomenOnTheWall.org call on Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18) to Apologize for Her Recent Remarks Equating so-called “Militant Christians” with Radical Islamists

June 23, 2011 (HOUSTON, TX) – A coalition of concerned citizen groups led by Anita Moncrief founder of Boots of Liberty Task Force (BOLT), Pastor Jim Bowie, Associate Minister at True Life Missionary Baptist Church, Alice Linahan of WomenOnTheWall.org are joining together Thursday, June 23, 2011 to demand an apology from Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (TX-18).

BOLT founder Anita Montcreif said, “Sheila Jackson Lee’s attempt to somehow compare radical Islam’s stated purpose to subjugate the globe to a handful of violent criminals who are regularly condemned by mainstream Christians is an insult and a smear of peaceful Believers of all faiths.”

Alice Linahan, Social Media Director of WomenoftheWall.org said, “What the Congresswoman chooses to ignore is that Christian theology, including Jesus Christ, doesn’t advocate wiping off the map anyone of any ethnicity or belief.  Furthermore, the right to an abortion, or the right to choose an abortion, is not a Constitutionally-protected right; however the right to life is.”

Pastor Jim Bowie, Associate Minister at True Life Missionary Baptist Church said, “Those interested in partisan politics in the United States have increasingly rejected God and Christianity while those who try to hold on to traditional Christian values are under attack like never before. Sheila Jackson Lee’s statement hammers home the reality that American values, interests and security are not the concern of some of those in power.  Christians are fighting for our freedom even in this Christian nation.

“Ms. Jackson Lee owes an apology to her Christian constituents in Texas and across the country for her underhanded, equivocating remarks that can only be interpreted as an attempt to diminish the international scourge of Islamic terrorism.”

During a hearing about Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons, Jackson Lee suggested Texas investigators look into the threat of so-called Christian Militants’ attacks on abortion clinics are an attempt to “bring down America.”

PJTV Commentator Alfonzo Rachel responded to Ms Jackson Lee, saying, “Planned Parenthood undermines the black community and is the number one-place to go for blacks to participate in their own genocide.  Many black people will go because they see the right to choose an abortion is more enlightened than the right to life.”

Moncrief said, “Ms. Jackson Lee bombastic remarks illustrate the need for the efforts I will be announcing at the press conference today at 2:30 at Pearland Town Centre. Soon, Americans will be able to confidently vote their values, and have their voices heard.”

Grassroots Activists “Pledge” Further Engagement in Texas House

PRESS RELEASE 1/27/11

Vowing to remain actively engaged in the legislative process, several Texas Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations released an Internet video today thanking “The Texas 15” — the fifteen members who voted against Rep. Joe Straus for Speaker. Noting the dismissive remarks in the press, along with what they regard as efforts by some members to extract retribution on the “15,” leaders of many conservative organizations released a high-definition video online today at www.womenonthewall.org expressing their thanks to those “voting on principle.”

“On November 2nd, the people of Texas sent a clear message that they’d had enough of business as usual in Austin. On January 11th, these 15 brave men and women responded to that message by standing against the establishment,” Ken Emanuelson of the Dallas Tea Party said of the video. “They stood with the people and the people won’t forget it.”

Citing recent articles by veteran capitol reporters such as Dave McNeely and others, many leaders say they find the terms used such as “Astroturf” not only inaccurate but offensive, according to Rebecca Forest, Co-Founder of WomenOnTheWall.Org, the producer of the video.

“Tea Party, immigration, pro-life groups and many members and leaders of the Texas GOP came together in a united front to replace Straus — hardly “Astroturf.” Forest continued saying, “The Straus uprising was based largely on his actions last session but even worse to some, was his inaction as he attempted to give the House members a ‘warm and fuzzy’ type of public servant experience.”

Other Conservative and Tea Party leaders revealed new initiatives designed to “keep a keen eye” on the workings of the 82nd Texas Legislature. As an example they highlighted the Texas Tea Party Patriot PAC’s Government Accountability Project which will enlist group members to shadow, report and publish factual information pertaining to elected officials’ records at the federal, state and local levels. “Citizens have an ongoing responsibility in the process of governance that ends not at the ballot box, but extends with daily observation of the votes, words and actions of our elected officials,” Suzanne Guggenheim, one of the organization’s founders, said.

Wayne Richard, a talk radio host in the DFW market and former House District 66 candidate weighed in on the issue. “In today’s political climate it is imperative we elect legislators who have the backbone to vote as their constituents’ desire. Since the opening of this current session, we have a good indication as to who is willing to stand for principle and who isn’t. The people are awake and taking interest in future elections. Texans will remember who they can count on in November 2012.”
