Part 1 of 5 on Common Core. This is Important & Will Impact You, Your Children & Your Pocketbooks and Your Liberty

September 1, 2014

You may or may not be aware of or even heard of it, but it’s time to sit up and pay attention because Common Core is already here.

Common Core (CC) will strip our states of their Constitutional authority over education. It empowers the federal govt to control school curricula. Taxpayers need to know that CC will lead to required national testing that will incur massive costs to school systems and taxpayers. Parents need to know the massive student-tracking system collects personal identifiable data on students and their families.

Common Core has already been adopted by 45 states & the District of Columbia. The last time a federal standardized curriculum was proposed in 1995 (the national history standards) it was rejected by the US Senate 99/1 because it was deemed too politically correct and anti-American (imagine that).

Who are the drivers of these new nationalized standards & why? The why is that there is a great deal of M-O-N-E-Y to be made at the educational trough. Some of the groups are:

  • a non-profit (ha-ha) group called Achieve Inc. which wrote the standards
  • the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has spent over $100 million
  • two Washington DC based trade associations that provided cover for the drafters of the Common Core standards

Once the Common Core content standards are adopted, they CANNOT be changed by the States. This is unconstitutional and completely undermines our 10th Amendment authority of the States over education. You need to understand what is happening in our government (public) schools and get involved. Go to Stop Common Core.

More Govt Gone Wild; City Prosecutors Using Its Citizens Like ATM Machines

August 29, 2014

Sort of ironic I’d say that Philadelphia, birthplace of the U.S. Constitution is now the worst offender of the crime of Civil Forfeiture. Federal, state & local government’s egregious behavior of seizing citizens property under very nefarious conditions. Hat-tip Liberty Pen.

In case you missed it in the vid, the city of Philadelphia has seized nearly 1200 homes in the last ten years -exceeding 20 times more than all the counties in PA combined! They seize cash, cars & homes if suspected of being connected in a crime.

Philadelphia in the last decade has collected $64 Million in property proceeds and used over half of that to pay salaries!

This is one of the biggest property rights abuses ever. You have to prove your property was not connected to a crime or you lose your property. There is no assumption of innocence and very little due process. This is what happens when governments (at all levels) and their minions abandon the Constitution.

For Those Who Love To Hate The Tea Party ~This Is One of Very Few Positive Things to Happen in Ferguson

August 27, 2014

Many are so quick to criticize, lay blame and exploit the situation to their own benefit like the Rev Sharpton & his ilk, but this is one of the very few positive things I have seen in Ferguson that not only makes sense, it makes be believe in the goodness of the majority of Americans and makes me proud.

Hattip SmartBusiness Hawaii & Senator Sam Slom. BUYcott in Ferguson. Several Tea Party groups launched a “BUYcott” (instead of a boycott) and went to Ferguson, MO., site of recent looting and violence supposedly over the shooting of Michael Brown, to show their support for innocent, vandalized small businesses in the town. Never could see the nexus between alleged civil rights issues and arson, looting and vandalism. Reportedly the Tea Partiers, bought plenty to aid the businesses. Great idea-no mention in drive by media.

Can’t Believer CBS Aired This Video -Promoting Violence

August 24, 2014

But I love it! Hat-tip The Heritage Foundation.

And some other 2nd Amendment rights information.

  • A federal district struct down on July 26th the District of Columbia’s (or the district of corruption) law banning the public carry of ready-to-use handguns outside the home. Yep, it’s unconstitutional, violating our right to bear arms.
  • Liberal Maryland loses business over their Firearm Safety Act of 2013 which banned a range of firearms and places restrictions on gun owners. Italian gunmaker Beretta announced recently it will relocate its U.S. headquarters from Maryland to Tennessee. So there. You don’t want our business, we’re outta here . . . . and taking 300 jobs with them!
  • Another retail store bans open-carry. Ok, I happen to agree with this. There really is no compelling reason to go shopping at Target, or Starbucks or Krogers openly carrying firearms just to make a point in ‘open-carry’ states. It seems counterproductive to the cause.

Happy target shooting!

First They (the Feds) Arm Themselves to The Gills While Continually Chipping Away at Our 2nd Amendment, Now They Want to Outlaw Us Buying or Possessing Body Armor!

August 21, 2014

WTF?

What gives? There are currently over 70 Federal agencies that are armed with handguns, submachine guns, ammo and body armor. And watching what has unfolded over the last week or so in Ferguson, MI you may be getting the idea this is not such a good idea. the standing army

Here’s how it plays out. Every time there is a shooting, a mass murder or otherwise, the lib-tards come out in full force to further erode our 2nd Amendment rights. Why the coroner even called the death, some 40 years after James Brady was originally shot and injured in the assignation attempt on President Reagan, a homicide. This is a full frontal “Piers Morgan” non-stop. And it’s always somewhat successful, they never get much, but they usually get something, they’ll limit the magazine size, require more arduous paperwork, etc., etc. Never mind that it’s the criminals who don’t bother with any gun control laws. So it only servers to restrict citizens from their Constitutionally guaranteed right to defend themselves against the bad guys.

Then they arm municipal police forces with military combat gear right down to the tanks, guns, ammo, tear gas, flash granades, etc., which you can see is not necessarily the best idea in fostering community relations between the police and the public. It has totally become an  US or THEM mentality.

And now there is actually federal legislation proposed, H.R. 5344, banning law abiding citizens from owning body armor. It’s called the Responsible Body Armor Possession Act.

It’s enraging and infuriating. I’ve said it before and The Sovereign Man agrees.

“It’s so obvious: the county has become a giant police state. It’s time to set aside a lifetime of propaganda & programing telling you that you live in a free country. Look at the evidence all around you. They spy, they steal, they wage illegal wars. They authorize military detention of civilians. They destroy anyone who challenges them. And now they want to take away a non-violent means of protecting yourself.”

They’re setting us up people.

Mexican Prez Gets What He Deserves -a Snub From Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly Who Will Stage a Protest Over the Imprisonment of Sgt. Tahmooressi

August 19, 2014

I’ve heard it bandied about that perhaps Governor Jerry Brown of California may run for prez in 2016. Has he been great for California?? Some say so, but he loves higher taxes and he signed a law allowing elementary kids to choose bathroom preference based on sexual identity. He’s ok with allowing non-physicians to perform abortions. Calif is 48th out of 50 in its business tax climate. And Brown loves dreamers and is in favor of immigration. Not immigration control, but ‘come on up’ immigration. So I guess this may be my round about way of saying I’ve got no use for him as a presidential candidate. But this really ticks me off:  Brown’s giving a luncheon honoring Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Aug. 26 at the Governor’s mansion. Just what has Nieto done to earn the honor of dining as a special guest of the governor?

  • he opened the Pony Express highway from Central America north to our southern border
  • he relies on illegals from his country to shore up Mexico’s economy at great expense to our own
  • he thinks America should do more to welcome illegals; feed, educate, house, employ and provide free health care & he’s doing NADA to stop the porous border
  • he sits by (as does Obama!) while Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi sits in a Mexican jail nearly 5 months after mistakenly taking a wrong turn into Mexico

Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly declined his invitation to attend the luncheon, instead delivered a scathing response to Brown on Monday regarding the continued imprisonment of Marine Sgt. Andres Tahmooressi. And he will hold a protest on the day of the luncheon outside the front entrance of the Governor’s mansion in Sacramento.

And BTW, I didn’t hear a peep out of Obama, Gov. Brown or this Peña Nieto in response to a U.S. Border Patrol agent murdered in cold blood in front of his entire family on a recent Sunday by 2 illegal immigrants. None of those officials deserve our respect if you ask me!
