With France’s economy falling apart even more quickly than its fellow European Union partners under the Big Government leadership of Socialist President Francois Hollande, the French went to the polls this weekend in local elections and voted for change — real change — in massive numbers. The rout was so monumental that the election day is being described as the government’s “Black Sunday.” Not only did Hollande’s radical Socialist Party get crushed, losing more than 150 major towns mostly to the “right”-leaning opposition, analysts say the primary beneficiary of the landslide was probably the hysterically demonized anti-EU National Front. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Obama administration is under fire from critics, state governments, and lawmakers for yet another federal “overreach” and abuse of power after it unveiled plans for a massive land grab across five states under the guise of protecting the “lesser prairie chicken.” Analysts and opponents of the scheme say the controversial decision to declare the bird “threatened” could unleash major damage against property rights, oil exploration, energy, farming, ranching, jobs, development, industry, states’ rights, the U.S. Constitution, and more. Affected state officials and lawmakers, though, are already considering their options to fight back.

As the Obama administration, Bill Gates, the United Nations, and other forces seek to finalize the decades-old effort to nationalize — and even globalize — education by bribing and bludgeoning state governments to impose Common Core, one of the key agendas behind the deeply controversial standards has been largely overlooked. In essence, official UN documents and statements by top administration officials reveal a plan to transform American children, and students around the globe, into what globalists refer to as “global citizens” ready for the coming “green” and “sustainable” world order.

For over a year now, Americans have been up in arms over the Obama administration’s unconstitutional efforts to bribe and bludgeon state governments into surrendering control over K-12 education through the controversial so-called “Common Core” national standards — and the outrage is still growing. A peek beneath the surface, however, reveals that the nationalization of American schools is actually just one component of a much broader global agenda being pushed by the Obama administration, the United Nations, Bill Gates, and others: the globalization of education.

Celebrations by parents, teachers, and taxpayers across the political spectrum over the purported death of Common Core in Indiana may have been premature. When legions of activists, parents, and teachers forced lawmakers to pass legislation dropping the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of K-12 education, which Republican Gov. Mike Pence signed on Monday, they thought that would be the end of the deeply controversial standards. However, now that drafts of Indiana’s “new” standards have emerged, it is clear that they were largely copied and pasted from the scandal-plagued Common Core.  

With the tide turning against the Obama administration-pushed Common Core nationalization of K-12 education, Big Business and powerful corporate lobbyists are dropping millions of dollars on a massive propaganda campaign aimed at defending the “progressive” educational establishment’s national school standards from the intensifying public uproar. The latest establishment outfits to join the war on outraged citizens across the political spectrum — mostly parents, teachers, and taxpayers seeking to preserve local control of education and promote proper schooling — include the Business Roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and their front groups. Their ploy, however, may well backfire.

In what is widely being described as a “rigged” presidential election in El Salvador, “former” Marxist mass-murderer Salvador Sánchez Cerén with the globalist-backed and gangster-funded FMLN, a strong ally of Latin American communist and socialist tyrants, was declared the winner without a recount. Citing widespread fraud, the opposition ARENA party asked for the razor-thin-margin election results to be recounted, investigated, or annulled. However, an electoral commission controlled by Sánchez Cerén’s communist guerrilla group-turned political party refused, declaring the ex-Marxist terror “commander” to be the winner by less than 6,400 votes.

As part of a fiendish effort known as FATCA supposedly aimed at extracting an extra billion or so dollars from U.S. taxpayers each year, the Obama administration is bypassing Congress to impose a far-reaching new tax regime on the world, and on the United States. Experts and analysts say the scheme could destabilize the U.S. financial system and potentially even spark another economic crisis due partly to executive-branch mandates on American banks; yet the IRS and the U.S. Treasury are moving full-speed ahead in spite of major concerns raised by lawmakers and others over their authority to do so. Critics are referring to the whole plot as “fiscal imperialism.”

A crucial component of the widely criticized new addition to the U.S. tax regime known as FATCA, passed by Democrats and signed by Obama in 2010 as part of a “jobs” bill, could result in massive capital flight from American banks and economic devastation if efforts to stop it are unsuccessful, experts and policymakers are warning. With the U.S. economy still teetering, some analysts are even suggesting that allegedly unlawful IRS mandates purporting to force American financial institutions to report foreign account holders to their governments could be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back.

Even though the national Republican Party has officially rejected the Obama administration-pushed Common Core nationalization of education, a handful of GOP figures in Wisconsin are being accused of sabotaging legislation that would have created a panel to review the controversial standards — and potentially kill them. As the national and statewide uprising against the dubious new federally backed education regime grows, however, lawmakers and activists in Wisconsin told The New American that the fight is far from finished.
