Common Core Marxist NWO

Can’t America see the alignment of Common Core “standards” with Karl Marx’s postulate on education and Obama’s desire to fundamentally transform America? – Justin Smith

 

Justin Smith exposes the Left Wing nature of Common Core State Standards as it is affecting his home state of Tennessee; however the analysis could be applicable to every State in the Union.

Serving The Truth

The Truth And An Ideological Battle

 

By Justin O. Smith

Many states, including Tennessee, are now attempting to extricate themselves from Common Core State Standards, after extensive research has proven them to be much more than an innocuous improvement on the long-standing public education system. The American people now see the subterfuge of CCSS and the intentions of the marxofascist Progressive Democrats to coopt the program in order to affect psychological changes and an alteration in the character of the American people through propaganda presented as fact and indoctrination.

 

In this light, the ‘Our View’ editorial from the November 23rd ‘Daily News Journal’ [Blog Editor: I could only find 11/22/14 DNJ editorial] is reprehensible and despicable. More than a simple “ideological scuffle”, as the DNJ named it, Common Core represents an ideological battle that will ultimately prove to be the most important component of the “21st century complexities of life, labor and liberty,” that they referenced. And yet, the DNJ urges TN State Rep. Rick Womick and “like-minded colleagues” not to “waste a lot of time, energy and resources” in battling CCSS and to essentially abandon the conservative ideas based on individualism, Western philosophies, Judeo-Christian principles and liberty – Our American Heritage – in favor of Progressive socialism, anti-American fallacies and false assumptions, atheism and more authoritarian, centralized government control over our lives and America’s children.

Common Core was originally intended to create new standards only in English Language Arts (ELA) and math in grades K – 12. Science standards were practically ignored. And now, in practice, CC goes far beyond just English and Math standards.

Very little research or analysis was conducted on Common Core prior to its adoption, and the members of the validation committee were required to sign non-disclosure agreements, as the public was initially kept well in the dark on CC. Of the members on the validation committee, there was one ELA expert, Dr. Sandra Stotsky, and one math expert, Dr. Jim Milgram, and neither one of them would sign off on it.

 

On November 13th, TN State Sen. Bill Ketron told an assembly of State Legislators, Murfreesboro City and Rutherford County School Board Councilmen that, during a recent conversation with Gov. Haslam, the Governor suggested he could beat any upcoming bill that attempts to remove Tennessee schools from CCSS, and Haslam had assurances from Lt Gov. Ramsey that such bills would fail. This will soon be tested, since Senate Bill 4 and House Bill 3 were recently filed in the Tennessee Legislature, in order to create “Volunteer State Standards” and stop Common Core expansion beyond this school year.

 

There exists many great reasons for all fifty states to permanently exit from CCSS, with all its flaws and predilection towards conformity, as exposed by Dr. Duke Pesta, who travels the nation speaking against Common Core, using the following example: Three students were instructed to collaborate on a math problem. One student answered correctly and two had wrong answers. The student who solved the problem correctly was marked “wrong”, because he went against the group. So, in the world of CC, consensus is everything and independent thought be damned.

 

One more enormous problem exists, because the College Board that wrote the Advanced Push U.S. History Redesign Framework is also headed by the architect of Common Core, David Coleman. Pay especially close attention to the word “redesign”.

 

The Framework omits Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, Dwight Eisenhower and many other key figures, as it gives one brief mention of George Washington and refers to the Declaration of Independence in just one clause of one sentence; it casts America in a negative light and forces teachers to instruct students in a leftist blame-America first reading of history, tearing apart everything good and decent America was built upon and omitting traditional presentations of our Founding Principles.

 

Look on page 74 of the Framework and one finds that teachers are given the flexibility to use examples such as Students for a Democratic Society and the Black Panthers. On the other hand, please note that Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are omitted from U.S. history.

 

A blatant, overt attempt to portray capitalism in a negative light is found on page 64: “A number of critics challenged the dominant corporate ethic in the United States and sometimes capitalism itself, offering alternative visions of the good society through Utopianism and the Social Gospel.”

 

George Washington doesn’t merit mention in AP U.S. History because he held slaves. This is a low and arbitrary slap in the face of all Americans and all real scholars, as cheap academics and untrustworthy curriculum become the new academic standard; the Progressives have rationalized and justified the evisceration of history, but in so doing, they put on display their own intellectual dishonesty.

 

In association with CC, the incredibly invasive Dept. of Education directive, ‘Promoting Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance’, demands public schools influence students’ non-cognitive development in dispositions, social skills and attitudes, which are independent of intellectual ability. To further this endeavor, schools are collecting more than 400 data points on every child through CC assessments, including their likes, dislikes, grade-point average, home situation and health questions from pre-K into the workforce.

 

Common Core builds a complete psychological profile. Any weaknesses in a child’s attitudes or values could be targeted for remedial indoctrination and education.

 

Can’t America see the alignment of Common Core “standards” with Karl Marx’s postulate on education and Obama’s desire to fundamentally transform America?

 

In ‘The Socialist Alteration of Man’ (1930) Lev Vygotsky, a Marxist Russian psychologist, writes, “It is education which should play the central role in the transformation of man this road of conscious social formation of new generations, the basic form to alter the historical human type … to reunite thinking and work which have been torn asunder during the process of capital development.”

 

The testimony of Lily Tang Williams, a former associate law professor at Fudan University in China and a legal immigrant living in Parker, Colorado, pounds the final nail in Common Core’s coffin:

 

“Common Core, in my eyes, is the same as the communist core I once saw in China … Nationalized testing, nationalized curriculum and nationalized indoctrination … I cannot believe this is happening in this country. I don’t know what happened to America, the shining city on the hill. Chinese children are not trained to be independent thinkers … they are trained to be massive skilled workers for corporations. And they have no idea what happened in Tiananmen Square in 1989 …”

 

Common Core proponents want students to view society’s problems and potential solutions through a collectivist worldview that serves the interests of a class, race, certain politicized groups and the State, rather than the truth, logic and rational thought. Creativity and innovation become grounded in emotion, and terms like “critical thinking skills” (red flag) become measures of a student’s acceptance or resistance to the radical changes in values, beliefs, feelings and behaviors that CCSS demands. The word “truth” ceases to have its old meaning, and it becomes something to be dictated by the State.

Smith Research to ‘Stop the Refugee Resettlement Program’


USA- Tolerance imports Muslim Intolerance

Well, I have committed a big WHOOPS. Justin is aware of my penchant to locate verification for info in guest submissions for the blog. Ergo a few hours after he sent me his very awesome and informative post “Stop the Refugee Resettlement Program,” Justin sent me a rough outline of his notes for the essay submitted. I did not get to that email until today hence committing a grave injustice to Justin Smith. So yes I did my typical thing adding a few clarification links. Below is that outline that better associates the thoughts of Justin than I did in my info links. If I guessed correctly with my info links trust me it was purely coincidental. I should be brash and something like, ‘Great minds think alike.’ BUT trust me, Justin is the thinker here.

No Muslim in the Military Controversy


Rick Womick. TN State Senator

 

John R. Houk

© November 30, 2011

 

A few weeks ago State Representative Rick Womick a member in Tennessee’s General Assembly made this statement:

 

Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military” and “if they truly are a devout Muslims, and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me,” the U.S. Air Force vet told Think Progress. (Quoted from New York Daily News. Emphasis Mine)

 

Ooh can you imagine how the MSM and the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim-American organizations wanting to throw Womick into the proverbial frying pan? How much more politically incorrect can a public figure get?

 

You have to know though, no matter how harsh Womick sounded, he has a good point. If you are a good Muslim following the totality of the Quran, Hadith and Sira as well as believing that Islam’s prophet is the perfect man and the example that all men should follow (and women follow the example of his rules for women) then you are person attempting to follow the totality of the Islamic path laid out in those three Islamic holy writings (and offshoots) to the best of your ability. If you follow that path that means are willing to dish out bad news for non-Muslims (kafir) up to and including killing.

 

Now do all Muslims make their goal in life to be a Muslim that follows the totality of what is written down for them to seek? This is unlikely. In this modern age most Muslims choose to follow the portions of the Quran that are attributed to Mohammed in the pre-Hegira days of Mecca.

 

Do all Christians follow the New Testament the path of Christ to share the Good News of Redemption from the darkness of this world age, sharing the love of God between Believers and unbelievers and letting all people know you are a Christian by the God-kind-of-Love (agape) fruit you produce?

 

Of course all Christians do not follow the Christian path to the letter. Those Christians who make every effort to follow the Christian path to the letter might be called Radical Christians. Think very carefully though. A Radical Christian is non-violent by nature. The Lord Jesus Christ gave instructions on how to share the Good News and the Great Commission:

 

1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also,[a] and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us[b] we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’ 12 But[c] I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city. (Luke 10: 1-12 NKJV)

 

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.[b] (Matthew 28: 18-20 NKJV)

 

The Christ-Way of spreading Christianity is sharing the Good News. If faith in Christ is rejected for whatever deluded reason, those that share are to shake the dust off their feet of those who rejected Christ. God will deal with the rejection. Christ did not command to war against rejection and kill those who refuse the Good News.

 

On the other hand the Quran, Hadith and Sira triumvirate Islamic holy writings take another path. After the recorded words of Mohammed were preached they were quite profound as a monotheistic message in Mecca for that city overtly practiced polytheistic faith and counted on polytheism as part of its economy. Mohammed was rejected in Mecca and forced to flee which is a holy event to Muslims known as the Hegira.

 

Something happened to Mohammed’s mind between pre-Hegira Mecca and post-Hegira Medina. Mohammed went from a message of ubiquitous oneness of God (Allah) and the inner peace available to voluntarily submitting to that oneness to an angry man that slowly built a cult army of Muslims that when strength was attained violently sought out all his detractors and offered them conversion, second class citizenship or death. The latter became the paradigm for Islamic imperial conquest in later years that stretched from India to Spain and managed to make an incursion in Eastern Europe to Vienna until repulsed by King Jan III (John) Sobieski of Poland.

 

America needs more people like State Rep. Rick Womick and Sobieski that understand Islam is a theopolitical culture that would transform America away from the heritage of Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness and of Christianity.

 

There is a difference between a good person seeking theological or philosophical inner peace and a good Muslim seeking the path laid out by Mohammed according to the Quran, Hadith and Sira. Thus there is a difference between a Muslim who is a good person (perhaps the hoped for Moderate Islam) and a good Muslim (perhaps the real Islam known as Radical Islam).

 

Bill Warner eschews the bonds of political correctness to defend Rep. Womick by defining the theopolitical nature of Islam that Womick alludes toward in his reasoning that Muslims should not serve in the US Military. Warner’s essay is awesome!
