With opposition to Obama administration-backed Common Core nationalized education boiling over across the political spectrum, desperate lawmakers in Wisconsin who support the controversial scheme — even after devastating testimony exposed myriad flaws with the standards — are trying fiendishly to distract from real issues by inventing conspiracy theories and attacking respected experts. The attempt by a trio of Common Core-supporting Democrats in the state to impugn top authorities on the standards, however, is backfiring in spectacular fashion. Now, calls for the lawmakers to explain themselves and resign are growing.
Facing a growing tsunami of opposition across the country, proponents of nationalizing K-12 schooling through the Obama administration-pushed Common Core education standards regularly claim that the educational “reform” scheme is “state-led.” After all, they are called “Common Core State Standards” (CCSS), and the federal government is prohibited by the Constitution and U.S. law from meddling in what students learn.
The reality, however, is that the deeply controversial standards were almost entirely the product of billionaires, the establishment, Obama administration machinations, and an assortment of front groups and trade associations funded by Bill Gates and the federal government.
While the details and facts surrounding the reported shooting at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) continue to shift, the establishment media’s dangerous but easily predictable narrative is already in full swing. In essence, it goes like this: Anyone and everyone who harbors “anti-government” views, expresses opposition to what global leaders refer to as the “New World Order,” or advocates for honest money, is a potential terrorist in waiting. The demonization of vast swaths of the American public is now accelerating, but in the process, the establishment press is exposing itself as clueless, out-of-touch, or deliberately deceptive at worst.
With recent public hearings on national Common Core education standards by Wisconsin lawmakers in October, another element of the national battle is becoming increasingly obvious: This has become a fight largely between concerned citizens and parents on one side, with Big Business, Big Government, and a cadre of establishment billionaires like Bill Gates on the other. This week, efforts of pro-Common Core forces to demonize the grassroots opposition — which transcends the traditional political spectrum — reached the point of absurdity. Citizens and even lawmakers, though, are now hitting back at bizarre and inaccurate allegations made in an apparent effort to dismiss public concerns about the nationalized standards.
Recent comments by the head of the Bank of England, the U.K.’s powerful central bank, offered further evidence that Western central bankers are preparing to shower even greater quantities of fiat currency on private banks and financial institutions — all at public expense. Already, tens of trillions of dollars’ worth of debt-based currency has been created out of thin air by the Federal Reserve, the BoE, the European Central Bank, and other central banks to prop up private mega-banks and wild spending sprees by government amid the economic crisis. With help and guidance from the BoE’s new governor, Mark Carney, analysts say all of that is set to accelerate.
Remember when Obama and his apparatchiks said that if you like your current health insurance plan, you could keep it under ObamaCare? Well, he was lying. It turns out that the false claim — repeated often by the president and parroted by the establishment press — was not true for most people in the individual market. Neither was it true for millions of Americans who receive insurance through their employers. Even worse, despite the frequent lies, the administration has known all of that for years.
The U.S. Senate is again reportedly working to revive a controversial United Nations treaty surrounding government policy on disabled people, which was narrowly rejected late last year amid fierce public opposition. A broad coalition of critics has slammed the scheme as an assault on American sovereignty and liberty, as well as a dangerous precursor to further usurpations of power. However, while a coalition of Republicans was able block the previous attempt at ratification, reports suggest that the outcome could be different this time if citizens do not rally together to stop it.
What critics have described as the Obama administration’s “war on journalism” appears to have been taken to another level in recent months with a federal SWAT raid on a reporter’s home, which resulted in the seizure of her private notes and the potential unmasking of whistleblowers within government. Following revelations about lawless spying on reporters and even charges against a journalist of being a "conspirator" by the Justice Department, the explosive story about the raid unveiled last week is causing a fresh wave of outrage — and deep concern. A lawsuit is already in the pipeline to fight back against the latest attacks on rights guaranteed to everyone under the First and Fourth Amendments to the Constitution.
Alongside the highly controversial nationalization of education via the Obama administration-backed “Common Core,” the federal government is bribing and bullying state governments into collecting huge amounts of private data on students for use by the U.S. Department of Education and other bureaucracies. Despite establishment efforts to downplay the links, the outrage surrounding both schemes — removing local control of schooling through dubious national standards and vacuuming up information on America’s children — continues to grow nationwide.
In a rare window into reality published by the establishment press, an explosive interview with a former U.S. ambassador appearing in the Miami Herald offered further confirmation of the largely behind-the-scenes machinations of a powerful network of socialist and communist forces working to foist tyranny on the peoples of Latin America. In contrast with the popular narrative of Brazil’s ruling political class as a “moderate” force, the ex-official also touched on the key role played by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (PT) in the ongoing takeover of the region by a totalitarian-minded cabal.
