Public Schools or Public Screwels? Part 11

anti-common core part 11

I’ve decided to make a  part 11.

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group:

Hey ya’ll! My friend was told by the Principal that she could opt her son out of Sage but it would effect his grade and they would find something harder for him to do. They opted another son of hers last year and they did give them harder stuff. So my questions are, what are her options? Should she report this principal? Where is the law that states no penalties? Where can she get her own form to opt out?

He made her feel really guilty saying “it’s your choice, it’s your choice. But it’s good practice for the act”

_____________

And here are some replies to said post:

This principal is a “BULLY” he needs to be gone!

________________

yes and no. It could just be a misunderstanding 😬. I doubt it. But I don’t want anyone to lose their jobs. Just corrected.

______________

yes I understand but experiences go far past this and I’ve been to the District and nothing changes.

_____________

You should be able to find the opt out form online at the Utah state education website. Sage is not required. Have her sign the paper and turn it in. Then if he continues to be annoying just have her check her child out whenever there is a test.

______________

Illegal! Illegal! Illegal! Tell her to contact the assessment director or the superintendant.

___________

If you message me and tell me the school district, I can help you find your first point of contact.

These decisions belong 100% to the parents, not the principal at a government school. Tell your friend to go in and ask this principal if they can sit down and review this test together so she can see if it’s appropriate for her student. He will tell her that no one, including himself is allowed to see the questions. So how does he know if it’s a good practice for the ACT?… They should not be administering tests that they cannot see the questions to. If they want to administer an alternative test, have her ask to review that one as well. Opting out of SAGE testing cannot affect their grade.

She’s kinda nervous to report him bc it’s a small community and her son is in sports. Can it be anonymous?

Doing what she feels is best for her child is always the right decision. If she’s already talked to them then they’ll most likely know it’s her. If I was her I would go in and sit down and explain that as the parent she will not be allowing her student to take this test, and she would appreciate it if they would kindly respect her parental rights and wishes for her child. I would respect a parent more if they came in and were kind but very straight forward about what they wanted for their child.

This should be of great concern to ALL Texas Parents.

“The State Board of Education will now require the use of machine-readable curriculum standards when publishers create new high school reading language arts instructional material. This is the first step towards requiring interoperability.”https://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/News_and_Multimedia/Press_Releases/SBOE_News/New_online_instructional_material_to_be_based_on_digitized_curriculum_standards/

“Project Unicorn partners presented at SXSWedu March 2018. Dell Foundation presented that data interoperability meant a 360-degree view of student data, information on past test scores, attendance, behavior, etc. right there on the spot and the USDoE’s Digital Promise, who is interested in leveraging the mind, brain connection in education, moderated a panel on bringing brain scanners to measure students’ learning.

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group:

can Nebo District do this?
Email from teacher below. I will post her first email from during school yesterday in the comments. This is what she sent today.

“After I emailed you last, I attended an ethics training for SAGE and received new policy information from the district and state. This year, schools are required to provide an alternate learning experience during SAGE. That means that opt-out students will have a different assignment that will still be required–so if you were to check out Trent on those days, he will still need to make that assignment up. Just for your information, this is found in Utah Code 531-15-1403: “Teachers may not reward or punish a student for being excluded from testing. Schools are required to provide an alternative learning experience for the student while the rest of the class takes the assessment.” This particular alternate assignment is the same for each 7th-grade English class at our school. This assignment will neither be a punishment or a reward–just a different option for those opting out.

As far as grading for SAGE goes, we have been directed to give participation grades–this has nothing to do with how well they score on SAGE or whether or not they opted out, but it is based on their effort in participating. Students who opt out of the SAGE will earn these points by taking the opt-out assignment, which will also be graded based on effort–not mastery. If you’d still like to check Trent out of school, he can make up the assignment at home.

If you have any other concerns or questions about the new policy, my administrators would be happy to explain this further.”

They’ll infuse ‘em with norms and ethical standards … which they’ll approve … and auto-correct their emotions so they lose any traces of childhood … and become perfectly calibrated, social creeps.

And that’s how they’ll retool your kid’s personality … and rehabilitate their identity … pretty much without bothering you at all. But that should bother you to no end.

I went to my great-grandaughters school to have lunch with her (that’s nice that the school allows that) as I stood in the hall watching the class arrive I thought “my Lord it’s the Hitler army” perfectly straight line of perfectly spaced littles, no touching!!, no talking (pretend you don’t see Grammy standing over there) God forbid that she show any delight in seeing Grammy. A far cry from my school days when “best Friends ( you are not allowed to say the “best” part anymore) actually held hands in the hallway on the way to lunch.

 Here is a post from a New York anti-Common Core group:

Assemblyman Ra and Assemblyman Murray Disappointed the Assembly Majority has Blocked Transparency in Schools

Assemblyman Ed Ra is disappointed to announce that his bill, the “Standardized Testing Transparency Act” (A2312) was held in the Assembly Committee on Education. The legislation would have allowed the Commissioner of Education to release all questions and content on state tests as well as data on the number of students who completed, opted out or were eligible to be tested within 30 days following the test.

“We need to provide our families with this information so they can feel confident when making their personal decision on whether or not to have their children take the new Common Core tests,” said Ra. “Students and parents deserve this transparency, as it will help them determine what is right for their families, as each family has a unique situation. By blocking this legislation, Assembly Democrats are once again refusing to allow families the opportunity to decide what is right for their children. Our teachers are also being let down, as they are caught in the middle of all this. It is already known that there are issues with the content of the tests and its administration, this secrecy is not helping anyone. Though the Assembly Democrats continue to refuse to help students and their families, I will continue to fight for this transparency. We need to be open and honest about what is going on behind the scenes so each family can decide what is right for them.”

“It was disappointing that Assembly Democrats once again let down our teachers, parents and students by blocking the Standardized Testing Transparency Act, legislation that would have given families peace of mind in helping to determine if it was appropriate for their children to take these standardized tests. We have already seen a myriad of problems with the contents of the test’s questions and with how they are administered. I will continue to fight for the highest level of transparency and accountability in regards to the curriculum being taught and the tests that are administered, to help our parents make the best educational choices for their children,” said Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I-East Patchogue), the Ranking Republican Member of the Education Committee.

Here is a post from a friend of mine:

A good friend of mine spent $40K per year to send her child to a good private school to avoid Common Core and the school to work infiltration. She wanted a truly educated child not human capital for the planned economy. The result for her sacrifice…..her daughter could not score well on the SAT. Even though this child had a 4.0 gpa and had all AP classes. The problem, she knew real math but did not know Common Core math. So her mother had to put out $80 per hour all summer so her child could now learn the CC way to do math and score better on the SAT. I tried to convince her to by-pass the SAT and go directly to the college entrance exam but she was stuck in the same paradigm as many other parents. They think the SAT is the only way to get into college. There is sadly only one solution to this problem. We need to stand up and STARVE THE BEAST. We need to take down this system. Make implode upon itself. But it will take parents willing to stop sending the children into the belly of the beast. If we could get 30% of parents to pull their kids we just might be able to bring it all down. If not we will have 30% of future population with a real education.

I found this post from a California group, though the post was from 2016:

Do you want your student’s data collected and housed in a longitudinal data system outside of the CDE? Well, it’s happening.

The CORE districts are experimenting with your kids. After conducting a two year pilot on ways to measure social emotional learning (SEL), the lead psychologist (Angela Duckworth) backed out of CORE’s project. She felt the implementation of SEL measures was ahead of the science, but that hasn’t slowed CORE down.

CORE Districts are now collecting extensive data on your kids that reaches well beyond academics.

More importantly, this data is being collected and housed outside of CDE’s data system, CALPADS.

Per CORE’s federal wavier, these districts agreed to build a robust longitudinal data system, which is housed at Stanford’s John Gardner Center for Youth. The system was designed to share data across key sectors related to education, such as heath and human services, welfare and criminal justice departments, after school and community programs etc.

The goal is to generate a comprehensive digital profile of every student in order to track his/her performance and progress from cradle to career. The endgame is a sustainable (planned) economy. Although the shift to SEL is couched in the well being of students, it is actually driven by corporate interests, folks who see your kid as human capital.

Thanks to FERPA and CORE your child’s data can and will be shared widely with any number of third parties that have a “legitimate educational interest.”

This year CORE has added several more schools and charters into the fold. From the first federal waiver, CORE intended to scale its approach across the state.

The extensive data collection is a threat to your child’s privacy and safety. More importantly, it won’t improve the quality of his/her education.

So, if you don’t want your child’s personal information collected and shared, you have to speak up. Opt out of adaptive learning software. Demand textbooks and teacher generated assessments, old school paper and pencil tests.

 Here is a post from a friend of mine:

Hill told Harris that she left the AEA after her first year of teaching. She is not alone.

Because AEA has failed miserably to represent teachers in the state for years, fewer and fewer teachers belong to the organization. This is not strictly an Arizona phenomena. In fact, across the country, as teachers’ associations took on political fights that had nothing to do with teaching and everything to do with progressive issues like climate change, membership has fallen off.

Excerpt –Google measuring “soft skills” in k-12 NH schools:
“According to this recent article in the Manchester Union Leader, SNHU received a $1 million dollar grant from Google to develop an assessment to measure “soft skills.”
Soft skills include behaviors, attitudes, and the mental health of the person being assessed. In NH, these soft skills are being assessed k-12 too. In some cases this is being done without parental knowledge or consent. This is part of the Competency Based Education model that includes measuring attitudes, dispositions, and behaviors.”

Here is a post from a Georgia anti-Common Core group:

NWEA MAP TESTS. Parents, did you know that all students who take the NWEA MAP growth test, have a separate ENGAGEMENT profile? (It has nothing to do with whether they answered the questions correctly or incorrectly.)
What follows is a brief account of a nearly 7 month NWEA Q & A communication and related FOIA. Many questions remain unanswered. I invite NWEA, teachers, students, other parents to give input — as this is something that potentially affects millions of US students. If you are short on time, here is the very short ‘Top 10’ version:

1. NWEA rebranded in 2017, won award for new Social Emotional Assessment tool for MAP Growth, announced new “engagement” profiling for every student, and hired new CEO, Chris Minnich, of CCSSO, the Common Core copyright co-owner.

2. Detecting Social Emotional skills is a $43 Billion global market for edtech.

3. NWEA maintains one of the largest repositories of student growth data in the nation. Why hasn’t NWEA signed the SIIA privacy pledge to not sell student data?

4. Where is NWEA data being shared; how is it being used and analyzed? Collaborators, Researchers, Hitachi.

5. Do parents know their child has an engagement profile with NWEA ? Can parents opt out of this profile? (No).

6. In a study with Harvard’s Center for Education Policy Research Proving Ground Network , and a Gates funded CORE school district, NWEA has used personal data from the NWEA engagement profile and COMBINED this pii data with personal, student-level (pii) data from students’ self-reported behavior surveys. NWEA’s study concludes that test disengagement (rapid response) is “connected to risk of dropping out of school …and a lot of deep-rooted problems”.

7. Who will be able to see if a student has been flagged as disengaged (or at risk for these “problem areas”) by NWEA? (ie: Will this disengagement profile or flag ever be shared with colleges, employers?) Did parents give informed consent for this NWEA study that combines and potentially re-purposes sensitive student data? In asking NWEA and FOIA of the school district, (here), I could find no evidence of explicit permission or informed parent consent. Will NWEA obtain informed consent in the future and allow parents to opt out of SEL or Engagement data?

8. Accuracy?

9.NWEA Reading Fluency now uses Voice Recognition technology. How is THAT data being analyzed, used?

10. NWEA and researchers, edtech, Congress can learn from the Facebook scandal. Children’s data should not be taken without consent, should not be repurposed, researched, and analyzed without transparency and consent. You need to do better. We deserve #GDPRfor ALL.

 Here is another post from Alice Linahan:

The Interagency Day Care Standards of 1971 federal law.
Excerpt: “Any agency, public or private, which receives federal funds directly or indirectly through a grant or contract… or by way of a voucher plan” must meet all program requirements (ed) that are set down for public schools. Acceptance of Federal funds is an agreement to abide by the requirements.”

Then, in 1981 the American Legislative Education Council, formed by Paul Weyrich (“We are radicals who want to change the existing power structure. We are not conservatives…”), mailed to 16,000 state and federal officials and legislators a suggested educational voucher.

Thomas A. Shannon, Executive Director of the National School Boards Association, said, “Tuition Tax credits for private schools profoundly change the character of private education. Private schools that operate with public money will be subject to public regulations.”

Sure enough, concurrently, on July 18, 1971, key federal legislation underlying and controlling any subsequent education legislation was adopted.

This master control system, “The Interagency Day Care Standards,” hinged upon the federal government’s own definition of day care: “Day care is defined as the care of a child on a regular basis by someone other than the child’s parents for any part of the 24-hour day.”

It states that “Any agency, public or private, which receives federal funds directly or indirectly through a grant or contract… or by way of a voucher plan” must meet all program requirements (ed) that are set down for public schools. Acceptance of Federal funds is an agreement to abide by the requirements.”

School Choice Corporate Reformers are not pushing quality education, they are just pushing… “Choice” and “Competition”.

Who could be against “Choice” and “Competition” in America?

As my friend Michael Bohr correctly states…
“Parents, who are the first and forever educators of their children, are the only people who hold the right to determine “the best interests of their child.

Everyone one else has an agenda that puts their best interests over those of the child and they have done so by taking control of our government.

Their hope is that we continue to fight the false battles they lay down before us and forget that we, the parents, are the sole authority in determining the education and upbringing of our children.”

“SCHOOL CHOICE” IS THE MOTHER OF ALL PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS, THAT WILL BE THE DEMISE OF EDUCATION IN AMERICA!

Does Brent Lawson know what has been written into the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which is the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), originally passed in 1965, opening the door for Title 1 federal dollars to go to economically disadvantaged students?

Anita Hoge clearly laid it out…..

“Specialized Student Support Services” and “Direct Student Services” mandate equitable services to all private schools, the same as in public schools. This is referred to in the ESEA legislation as “meaningful choice.”

There are specific lists of providers that must be used, as well as, an ombudsman that will oversee compliance in private schools. This is where the mandate will force teachers to identify students as being At-Risk of not meeting College and Career Ready/Common Core as a disability and perform psychological services paid for by IDEA. These interventions are defined as positive behavior intervention and supports, PBIS, multi-tiered system of supports, MTSS, response to intervention, RTI, and early intervening services, EIS, etc.

These interventions are happening NOW because of the Flex Waivers.
By identifying students as At-Risk under Title I, ALL will receive psychological treatment and interventions on your children in private, Catholic, and Christian schools, as well as homeschools (defined as a private school.)

THERE WILL BE NO ESCAPE FROM THE COLLEGE AND CAREER READY/COMMON CORE OR THE PSYCHOBABBLE IN THE LEGISLATION.

Regular classroom teachers are being trained to identify children who would need services through PBIS, RTI, EIS, & MTSS.

Once EDUCATION SAVING ACCOUNTS (ESA)’s are in full operation, dedicated to each individual student, an individual career pathway meeting College and Career Ready/Common Core soft skills (Grit) interventions and a treatment plan which will be funded by direct student services known as psychobabble.
Because these specialized services are defined in the legislation as psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, etc, these services will be mandated. These members of the psych profession will be in a position for MEDICAID TO BE BILLED FOR SPECIALIZED STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES. This is your meaningful CHOICE.

Medicaid is on the scene as mental health wrap around services. Your family and child will be assigned a case manager. This initiates an individual family service plan. The federal government has just walked into your front living room door.

(THIS ORIGINAL PLAN WAS DRAWN UP UNDER SEC BELL UNDER THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION UNDER THE NAME “KNOWLEDGE NETWORK FOR ALL AMERICANS.” http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED351771.pdf

Bell has written extensively about parents not being capable to raise their own children.)

“Hi All,

My son took the P-ACT this morning. He came home angry because the first hour was spent collecting data on the students, question after question regarding their preferences on various topics. Because he is my son, he entered “indifferent” to all that would allow him to do so.

Furthermore, at the beginning of the questionnaire, he had to sign a waiver to allow third parties to use the data collected on the data sheet. Though he did not want to agree, he didn’t feel he had any choice but to sign off on the waiver.

Not surprising yet very upsetting.”

87% of Teachers vote to DISASSOCIATE from the NEA teachers union. One of the Nations two largest teachers unions (the other is AFT)

“Las Vegas teachers, fed up with how their dues are being spent, voted overwhelmingly late Wednesday to cut all ties with their state and national parent unions.

The vote by the members of the Clark County Education Association, which represents almost 20,000 teachers in the Las Vegas area, is a significant loss to the National Education Association, the nation’s largest labor union.

It devastates the NEA’s Nevada affiliate, the Nevada State Education Association, as the Clark County local makes up half the membership of the entire state.

The national NEA now has a $2 million hole in its budget for this year, and it will also need to send money to the state affiliate, which won’t be able to sustain itself and will likely see staff layoffs.

______________

And here are the replies to this post:

The problem resides with top-down accountability itself. Accountability—which started here in Texas with GW Bush and his faux “Texas Miracle” turning around “failing schools”—is a set of neoliberal management tools deployed to undermine local democratic control of public education, destroy public unions, disempower parents and educators, and ultimately privatize public education. We should work to oppose all forms of hierarchical, top-down accountability. Schools instead should be accountable to students, parents, and the local community.

California piloted SEL in 2016-17 in 10 big, urban districts. The pilot was done with Transforming Ed out of Massachusetts, who created MESH.   https://www.transformingeducation.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/TransformingEducationCaseStudyFINAL1.pdf

the CORE districts are the same districts where they did this NWEA study— and I can’t find evidence that parents consented/ knew that stidnets’ Pii survey data was given to NWEA MAPs and they tied students’ quick response times to deep-rooted problem areas. I worry this (accurate??) NWEA SEL algorithm will be used as a predictor.   http://missourieducationwatchdog.com/nwea-map-assessments-study-connects-test-disengagement-to-student-deep-rooted-problems/

Here is a post that was shared by Alice Linahan:

The best thing about being a Dyslexia mom with a reputation for advocacy? Other moms are always still telling me about their kids successes and struggles. The recent instructional tour with its pictures has sure brought out a few discussions.

Flipped Algebra in 8th grade. Did you know it is almost completely digital? Students are assigned videos, they take Cornell notes at home and return to school to work in class. I actually had a kid whose teacher started this more than 5 years ago. But, what this mom was telling me, actually it is 2 moms. The videos aren’t always the same presenter or the same quality. Kids come to class and use the new NSpire calculators purchased by the district. No longer does the student need to understand factoring, they just need to understand how to translate the problem into equations on the Nspire “scratch Pad” and allow the calculator to solve. The work is multiple choice. If the answer isn’t one of the 4, assume you typed it in wrong. The “I am a mean mother,” of the 2 moms who brought up Algebra, says she has been teaching her student how to actually solve problems all year; factoring, the quadratic equation, systems of equations…she makes her child demonstrate he can solve Algebra problems based on knowledge. This is very different than when her older students took Algebra. And she is concerned because it is always a battle. Her student just wants to plug in answer choices and see which ones work. The teacher does not grade, the answers without work are simply reported into a google doc. Her concern is that the kids aren’t really learning Algebra and will not be prepared for HS science or math courses. Her older students have not graduated from high school.

Parents with students in Algebra, using the Nspire calculator, it is the end of the year, if your student had a paper and pencil test, could they solve Algebra problems?

_______

Here is a post from an anti-Common Core group:

Superintendent McGrath states that they want to reduce over testing. But the students in 8th grade have always taken state math tests and one day of a math final, same as this year. The difference is they have ADDED a day of the math final to punish kids whose parents have opted them out state tests. Unfortunately, those kids are already sitting through the flawed state test which wasted their instructional time and your taxpayer dollars.

Here are some posts from the anti-competency based education group:

Workforce = competencies. Education is now a talent pipeline and about earning a set of competencies / skills needed by business and workforce. ACT follows this w their Career Competencies model:
“Industry competency models are descriptions developed by the US Department of Labor (USDOL) to establish the skills, knowledge, and abilities required in growing industry sectors. The models help individuals obtain the training needed for various career paths in a specific industry, and they identify skills that are transferable across an industry. They are important because they promote an understanding of the skill sets and competencies that are crucial to building a globally competitive American workforce.
How does the ACT National Career Readiness Certi cate (ACT NCRC®) align with the models?
Each USDOL industry competency model is built on a series of tiers. At the base, Tiers 1–3 represent the essential foundational skills. The ACT NCRC, based on ACT WorkKeys assessments, certifies these skills and enables an individual to rise to the next tier—to advance toward success in a chosen occupation.”

Why they are killing the GED: “Skills-based hiring has provided the city of Albuquerque a higher quality applicant pool and significant return on investment in our hiring practices. It has also allowed us to replace the GED requirements with skills scores which then opened up a significant population of applicants we would not have seen before.

– Vince Yermal, Director of Human Resources, City of Albuquerque” https://corescore.jobs/employer_learn_more

________________

Albuquerque was the one city I did research on for the WorkKeys, career pigeonholed assessment. The City was using it on their perspective employees as well as current ones. Passed it off as happier employees. The sales pitch WorkKeys video expressly states no national work certificate, no job.

____________

Ugh. It is so insulting as a older worker to have to take a skills assessment to get a job. Your resume and work experience mean almost nothing to today’s HR. And no test currently used accurately measures soft skills. Companies are missing out on great candidates because the 20 somethings in HR only know how to read a score not a person.

In response to an article, on an Illinois anti-Big Government group,  about the costs of higher education, one person said:

It wasnt the cost that drove my son out of an Illinois college. It was the constant barrage of politics. The damned teachers spent so much time bashing Trump and the Republicans you’d swear they were running for office. Complaints to the school, state and the feds went nowhere. The students are quite tired of not learning what they signed up for. I’ve spoke to dozens of students who are leaving Illinois colleges and you would be shocked to learn how many actually say they are not learning anything because of the agendas.

My daughter and I went to a University of Chicago Admissions event. They disgusted me during the event with their Liberal agenda.

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group:

Looking for clarification. I’m in Nebo district. I’ve got an 8th grader who keeps getting put in in-school suspension because he is opted out and isn’t doing the alternate assignment. Is he required to do it? From what I’m reading on the group, the school is required to offer one, but he’s not required to do it, right?

____________

And here are the replies to this post:

No, he’s not required to take it. I wish this were more clear on the books, though.

_______________

That’s how I understand it. Personally, I would be okay with alternate assignments as long as it isn’t SAGE related & as long as it doesn’t effect their grade.

This is what the rule says: “(9) An LEA shall ensure that a student who has been exempted from participating in a state required assessment under this section is provided with an alternative learning experience if the student is in attendance during test administration.”
https://rules.utah.gov/publicat/code/r277/r277-404.htm#T7

And the Testing Ethics Policy gives some examples, but they are only examples & not requirements:
“Students are provided an educational activity if they are opted-out of a state assessment
Some examples are:
*LEA, school, or teacher created assessment on course standards
*A short essay (grade appropriate expectations) related to a Utah Core standard which could be student selected or assigned”
https://schools.utah.gov/…/bd4cdc0e-1892-4b64-bac4…

And here is another post from said group:

Anyone know if a law got passed—if a school District approved full-day optional kindergarten they would receive more funding? I know it was talked about a few years ago. But I can’t find anything recent. Also, I need opinions about KEEP. I’m trying to determine if I should opt out. Thanks in advance!

_________________

And here are some replies to this post:

I have administered the KEEP assessment, I think it’s a well designed test. I think the data could be used to show that full-day kindergarten has benefits with the assumption that the full-time kindergarten children will score better that 1/2 day children

_____________

I’m not sure about the law & funding, that might take a little while to find. The search function hasn’t been working for me since they updated the website. I am very concerned with the KEEP assessment though. The questions are fine, but I don’t like the social-emotional questions. A huge thanks to [name withheld] that those questions aren’t reported to the state (originally they would’ve been, but she stood firm during the State Board meeting to protect our children’s privacy). I will be opting out of it, even though it’s not listed on the state opt out form. We are over testing our children in our obsession with data & I don’t want to encourage it, especially when it’s coming from the state level & not the local level.

_________________

My school district has recently adopted an all-day optional Kindergarten. My main concern is not academics, it’s the reason behind the move. I tend to look at things in a macro-scale. Why after all these years are they doing this? Is it for the good of the child or is the real reason, their pocketbooks. I have done a little research and two years ago it was proposed in the Utah Senate that schools who offer full day Kindergarten vs half day could get more money for funding. Even if it’s offered as optional. It has always been optional at certain schools in our county, Huntington, for example, but why make it District wide? The more I research the more I find its less about the children and more about their own bank accounts. I think the reason I’m really upset about it, is because I see my influence upon my children moving more and more toward the government. Us commoners don’t know what’s best for our children. They take God out of everything at school, while we teach it at home. It’s no wonder our society is turning less and less to God. I don’t like that most of his friends are going to do it. It puts a lot of pressure on me to be full day, even though it’s optional. He’s going to wonder why his friends get to stay. I’m going to have to pray about it a lot. My sister’s kids do a full day in Texas, and they come home tired and wanting to sleep. We need to protect our little children, not burn them out. So what if they can read at 5? I want to know if he can be kind and learn to play nicely with others. The more practice he has at that, the more I can see his leadership skills, creativity, etc. He’s taken 2 years of preschool and has done UpStart this past year, already beginning to read. But he’s just a child and people will soon forget that, if their not careful. Thanks for the insight. I have a lot to think about.

Here is a post from a Washington anti-Common Core group:

My Thoughts on college degrees..

Most college degrees are completely and utterly worthless.

From my recent job hunting experience, I saw tons of jobs that “required” a bachelor’s degree yet only paid just a tad over minimum wage.

Why would anyone in good conscious saddle their children with $60,000+ (usually more) of debt that they had no chance of ever paying off in their entire lifetime when their fancy degree doesn’t even help them get better than a minimum wage job?

They wouldn’t even be able to afford basic necessities such as rent, utilities, food, etc and this doesn’t even remotely include the costs if they decided or happened to have children of their own.

Trade classes in middle/high school are all but extinct and it seems that there is no push at all for any trades. People need people who know how to build and fix things.

There are virtually no classes or parental involvement to teach kids how to cook, take care and clean up after themselves, how to be a decent human being and not treat others like complete crap either. This list could go on for quite a while.

Substitute Teacher Observes Blatant Indoctrination In A Public School Classroom

For her exposure of partisan politics in the classroom and support of the #purpleforparents group, Jennifer Hill came under attack on social media.

On Friday, Hill, a 20 year veteran teacher, who has been a certified substitute teacher for the Chandler Unified School District since 2012, was notified that she had been fired.

“I have been speaking out against the #redfored “movement, have been posting my opposition in a respectful manner and have been on the radio speaking about the facts on the progress and budget. In the week before the teacher walk-out/strike, the district began canceling substitute jobs I had accepted and planned to work,” said Hill. “During the strike of course, there was no work. I had substitute jobs scheduled for after the strike and next week. The District cancelled all of them. On Friday morning I began to get harassing messages from teachers in the District saying they got me fired. They said they hoped that I would never sub anywhere else, ever again, and were laughing at me.”

And another post from this group:

Perhaps if Gates really cares about the learning disadvantage he should stop pushing the vaccines that are causing so many children to be on the autism spectrum. Or perhaps her should study the effects of the rise in fatherless homes on a child’s ability to learn. Gates has long been involved in research to change brain function and other sicko projects. He was involved years ago in an education initiative with Bill Ayers that fell flat on its face and cost Gate billions. His involvement in Common Core is failure #2, Common Core 2.0 will also fail and this new venture again it is marked to fail already. The man is a leper and does not have the best interest of education or our children in his hear. How come his boys went to a private school that does not use Common Core and only limited technology. He is a guy with a big fat check book that thinks he is God. He is a rich guy that wants to be even richer and make all of his buddies richer. We have people buying education that have no clue. This includes our President, our First Lady and the US Secretary of Education. Parents………listen up…..there is only one way to fix this situation because believe it or not it is functioning as it was intended to function 100 years ago…..they just didn’t have the technology back them. So you cannot fix what is not broken. We need to circumvent their plan to train workers for the planned economy. We have to pull our kids out and work together in the community to educate our children outside the federal institutions. Just research John Dewey and Horace Mann. They say it outright. Public school is not to educate but the train workers. They perpetuated illiteracy because illiterate people are easy to control and make into obedient workers. How many of you have churches that sit empty all week? We need to fill those empty church rooms with community school run by community workers using Freedom Project Academy we do not need trained or license teachers…..FPA is teacher led. let me know if you are interested in finding out more. But we need to fight a battle we are not going to win and think outside the box to circumvent these vulchers that see our children as nothing more than human capital.

Here is a post from a Mississippi anti-Big Government group:

The State Testing that we have in place in Mississippi is a waste of time and taxpayers dollars and needs to be done away with beginning next year. There are teachers all over the state who are into double digit days of testing / retesting and it’s ridiculous. I spoke to one teacher who stated she was on her 18th day, that’s 18 days of instruction that isn’t taking place because of testing. I’d like to discuss options with as many teachers as possible to get opinions, but I think we need 3 different tests for students to graduate.

1. The ACT for college bound students as well as any other student wishing to take it.
2. A Career entry exam for graduates planning on entering the workforce upon graduation.
3. A Special Education test for students with disabilities.

Our Focus in Mississippi has to be shifted to doing what’s best for our kids instead of doing what’s best for testing companies.
How do we do this?
Expand Job Training Vocational courses in High School.
Auto repair, welding, electrical, HVAC, CDL, Large Equipment Operation, Carpentry, Website building, Masonry, etc.

Our Motto should be “Let Teachers Teach!” not “Let Teachers Test!”

My daughter has also been told this, that the SBA is on equal footing with the SAT/ACT in that colleges look at that score as well.

The only thing the SBA did for my daughter was to allow her to walk at graduation with her class and be handed a diploma, whatever that is worth.

No law for something that isn’t illegal. (In other words, the existing laws you will find do not support what she is saying)

I don’t know where you are, but what I would do is dial a local community college admissions office on my phone and ask put it on speaker.
When they pick up, ask “I was told by [WOMAN’S NAME] that it is your policy not to admit students who have not taken [TEST].”
Let this imbecile listen when they answer.

Personally, I would go a step further and write letters to local colleges explaining that your school officials are telling kids they should not apply to their college if they haven’t tested. I would say this represents potential economic harm to the college, and if this is not the case, the college admissions office should call [WOMAN] and tell her the actual policy.f

And here is another post from this group:
Opted out my kids from state testing. Two days ago I get a phone call that they need bodies in front of the computer to get their 95% participation. Why don’t they just leave me alone? I had a few choice words for them, but bit my tongue 😣
_____________
And here are some replies to this post:
So funding isn’t dependent upon 95% PASSING the test, just TAKING the test?
____________
Im in California. Only 37% passed the math last year. I don’ t think they are going for quality LOL
________________
Which completely negates the purpose, and proves it’s political.
______________
That is, essentially, correct. Varies state to state a bit, but to get their “grade” a school has to have 95% participate. Less than that costs them on their grade. They also get to designate a certain percentage of their students “untestable” so it doesn’t skew their score (or arguably, accurately represent it).
_______________
That’s correct. It’s an ESSA requirement. Below 95% makes the test results invalid statistically speaking.
________________
It sounds as if you have 95% participate, but only 30% pass, you’re fine with your funding?
____________
It is all about participation. We wouldn’t even get the results of the test. It is all for funding purposes
____________________
I cant see how having your kids just sit in front of the computer could help them achieve their participation count. Typically, from what I’ve heard, is that they at least need the children to log into the test for it to count. I was told they could just log in but wouldnt have to take it. I said “Um….no way!.” They can eat the loss but my children would NOT be logging in to anything. They could either arrange for them to be somewhere else or I would come and get them just during testing hours and bring them back when it was done. I did that for 3 days with my 4th grader. Took him out of school each of the days for about an hour and a half and brought him back. (Pulled them from public school after that year and are in year 3 of homeschooling now so things may be different now…idk).
______________
That’s what I’ve learned. The federal law states they could lose funding, going below 95%, but that has never happened. The law is not being enforced. (Even if it was, I really wouldn’t care. That’s really my point, I am not happy with schools doing this so if they hurt a little, maybe they’ll rethink this crappy system. I wish more families opted out so they’d get our message loud and clear!)

I don’t bite my tongue. My kids school flips out when my kids are absent 1 day…gotta get all the head count for the $ they are not helping our kids out with 😠
Don’t bite your tounge they can’t keep running all over us. Stand your ground put your foot down (hugs to you) Good luck
_____________
I live in CA, and my high school daughter was bullied into being at school for 4 hours while the rest took the test. I have been backed in a corner by teachers about the blasted test. One told me that my daughter’s results would help her look good on the test and another one told me that they needed that data to help the teachers.  The teachers even wanted my children to do the practice test! I give the teachers one chance to find something for my children to do during the test, if not I find things for my children, so the stupid school can get their money for the child for the day.
_______________
The thing is my kids don’t give a rat’s patootie about the test. It is my stand on the political agenda of it. If we are to fight this crap, I have to stand my ground, and not bend over backwards for them. Giving in would be giving up on this fight
_________________
They told me that my special needs high schoolers (who are easily manipulated by authority) HAD to be there but it was their CHOICE to open the test. I can only hope that whatever they DID take helps to skew the school’s stats since they are being “graduated” with a first grade reading level.
______________
We had our Principal and Vice Principal call multiple times to both mine and my husband’s cell phones. We have high testing special needs kids. They are the gold mine in the school funding world for testing. I didn’t find that out until I became the school’s Special Needs Parent Representative.
_____________
Can you opt out in Michigan the school has told me numerous of time’s I can’t opt put it’s Michigan Law?
______________
I’m in Michigan. My girls do not take the test. Technically, it’s not “opting out.” If you use those words, they may tell you that you can’t. There is no law that says your kids must take the test. Hence, no reason to “need to opt out.” Make them SHOW YOU THE LAW, requiring they take the test. There is none. If they refuse to honor your request (& u think they are going to try & make them test) I’d keep them home. I was told they had no place for them to hang out during testing (3rd&4th grade) which is ridiculous. But I gladly kept them home. Then in 5th grade I pushed back, due to their age. They “found” a place for them. Same this year for 6th grade.
______________
Is this opt out option only for certain states? Washington state requires us to give pur kids an end of the yr test. We keep the results. I test my kids on their subjects all yr, I never understood why I need to do the end of the yr test.
________________
My kids test the week of May 14 and the week of May 21. They took their last math unit test last week. They won’t have another test but are reviewing each unit now with review homework for prepping for the SBA. There is NO MORE LEARNING FOR THE NEXT EIGHT WEEKS!!! What the heck are we paying teachers and admin for if they are done teaching math and English for two whole months. 140 days out of 180 are scheduled learning and 40 days are wasted. I’m ready to pull them since they aren’t taking SBA. This just seems like a complete waste and a cram session for the next two weeks. So sad.

 Here is a post from an anti-Common Core group:

I hope parents see what is happening here. This is the same agenda that forces parents to shoot poison into their children’s bodies in order for them to attend public school or daycare. Of course I blame parents for complying but that is just me. But this article again demonstrates how they are forcing compliance to follow an education agenda that is nothing more than training for obedient workers. You either follow the agenda or you don’t go to college, you don’t play college sports and even worse you are not employable. This is straight up Communism. Parents are still sitting back and playing right into their hands. The agenda is called DELIVEROLOGY. Deliverology is a plan for implementing change created by Sir Michael Barber of the UK. He also works for Pearson (surprise, surprise) He also is the founder of the Education Delivery Institute (EDI). Deliverology teaches change agents how to implement change that in a way that it is irreversible. This is exactly what we are seeing. I cannot speak for any other state (you might want to do some research) but I can speak for Tennessee. In 2010 the state of TN entered into a contract with EDI to implement Common Core. I bet if you dig deep you will find not only TN hired EDI but other states did too.

We have been deceived into a global agenda that if parents do not bring it down NOW will forever hold our children captive as obedient workers filling the human capital needs of the planned global economy, not their own wants, needs and dreams. PARENTS it is time to stand up and wage war. It is time for neighbors, friends, relatives, communities to come together get our kids out of these hell holes and educate them outside the system. You can NEVER say you weren’t warned.

Data from the real world is noisy and confusing, full of holes yet still flooding in at dizzying speed. Microphones in classrooms, real-time wearable data, pictures of kids’ artwork, information flowing through corporate social networks, and so many more forms of naturalistic data seem overwhelming, but they reveal insights into human behavior that structured surveys, high-stakes exams, and annual 360’s can never achieve. For example, we’ve shown how a bot monitoring free-form discussions among students could outperform final exams in assessing their conceptual understanding of course material, and do it starting on week one.”

The Countee Cullen/Public School 194 elementary aide, referred to in court papers as Mr. Kaseem, allegedly dragged the boy off a school stage on Dec. 7, 2017, according to his mother’s Manhattan Supreme Court suit.

Countee Cullen administrators didn’t tell the boy’s mom, Bernadette Torres, about the alleged incident, the suit says. Torres found out when her son, identified as ‘JL’ in court papers, came home ‘with a ripped shirt and deep scratch marks across his chest,’ she told the Daily News.” — New York Daily News’ Laura Dimon and Victoria Bekiempis.

Others concurred, although Grady again stressed the need to focus on learning and skills rather than credentials.”

it is written in Utah code that there is to be no reward for taking the test. Utah code is the law.

My school has a sage reward, but even those who opt out get to participate. Make sure you verify that. Sometimes they just use it as a way to explain why they are having a party

_______________

My 7th grader’s school advertised rewards for Sage that did originally exclude some students. I complained about it violating the law and it was changed to include all students. I didn’t have a problem with them getting to watch a movie once testing was done, so long as it wasn’t in any way related to how they did on the Sage testing and whether they completed it.

_____________

I may make a call to the state. A teacher at this school also instructed my son’s class to be sure not to opt out because it’ll affect her paycheck. My son said she basically said that if you opt out you’re an idiot and don’t care about her job.

Here is a post from a Massachusetts anti-Common Core group:

I have just had a serious awakening. My granddaughter just told us “they” lost points in school today because one kid didn’t sign their name on their homework in their class. Excuse me? What does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means folks. It means our kids are being taught to think and act like little automatons. To do what is “good for the group” and encouraged to NOT be individuals. “They,” (as in the class), get rewarded with a party if all goes well and everyone does as they are told. Demerits for the group if not, such as today, because one child forgot to write their name on their homework. Does this not blare out warning bells??

___________________

And here are some replies to said post:

Wow! Not ok. My son has lost credit for forgetting his name on classwork/ homework but only as an individual as it should be. I would complain with your teacher and principal directly.

_________________

They also have what they eloquently call the “golden plate” and “golden whistle” in this school. Children are judged on which is the best behaved class (ie who is the quietest) in the halls, outside on the playground and in the lunch room. We unfortunately can not afford private schooling for the kids. Homeschooling is a hopeful alternative

_____________

A child forgetting his name on a paper isn’t the concern of everyone else. It’s demoralizing and embarrassing to the student.

_________________

I totally agree. That’s one of the things my granddaughter and I were discussing. She was saying that she was the “fault” one day because she forgot her name and the date at the top of one of the numerous sheets of homework one night, and was disdainful of the child who’d forgotten recently. We had to have a heart to heart on that one. It seems like such a little thing but it’s indicative of what’s going on in our public school systems. I also understand that those in authority don’t want chaos in the lunch room but a “golden” prize to the ones who (do not speak and) stay quiet?????

_________________

I became suspicious of ‘group work’ about 7 years ago when I noticed the desks in my kids classrooms placed in clusters of 3 or 4. Teachers said collaboration was good because the advanced learners would push the slower learners along. I had several issues with that reasoning- 1. I didn’t send my child to school to ‘teach’ the other children. 2. One time my child was told by the teacher she could not advance to the next problem until all in the group were ready to move to the next problem. 3. My child was not necessarily grouped with ‘slower’ learners, but sometimes the ‘class clown’ who had no interest in moving in a forward direction. And 4. when members of the group agreed to do different ”parts of a single assignment, sometimes not all kept up their part of the bargain, so I made my kids do the entire assignment to be sure they didn’t lose points.

______________

I am frighten for the future of these children. Truly.

______________

Me too. So many young parents I know seriously believe I’m a nut and none of ‘this’ affects ‘their’ child. I saw and I KNOW what my children lost after 2012. Never to be made up.

______________

keep up the good fight. I know my son’s school principal and teacher are sick of me because I have had many meetings about the way my son has been treated. The teacher uses parties as rewards also comparing what each child does and deducting points. Also, being quiet at lunch, (when this supposed to be when talking is allowed) but yet they have a game to keep them quiet. It’s manipulative.

They do the party thing as a “reward”’for good little robot behavior here too. Horrendous.

EXPLOSIVE AGENDA REVEALED.
And today’s school shootings tie in the “Rethink” and Promise Programs” it’s Gun Control. Don’t believe me?

“But even before victims were laid to rest after their fatal shootings, former U.S Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel exchanged messages on how to frame the tragedy, politically.

During a roughly 10 minute period, the native Chicagoans exchanged seven messages two days following the massacre, in which Mayor Emanuel, who had previously served as President Barrack Obama’s chief of staff, advised Secretary Duncan on what position he should take on the Sandy Hook shootings.

At 6:57PM EST on December 16, 2012, Duncan wrote to Emanuel in a message titled “CT shootings.”

Duncan asked the Chicago mayor, “What are your thoughts?”

Five minutes later, Emanuel responded, “Go for a vote this week before it fades. Tap peoples emotion. Make it simple assault weapons.”

Duncan responded immediately, “Yup- thanks.”

“When I did brady bill and assault weapons for clinton we always made it simple. Criminals or war weapons,” Emanuel said in the email to Duncan.

“Gun show loophole?” Duncan responded. “Database? Cop-killer bullets? Too complicated?” he said.

“Cop killer maybe,” Emanuel responded. “The other no.”

The exchange ended when Duncan concluded with, “Got it.”

Two days after the Sandy Hook massacre, the former education secretary and the sitting mayor of Chicago were already discussing a national strategy…”

HORRIFYING !!!! I assisted a 7th grader get wi-fi access to her school iPad for her “English Language Arts” homework. She needed to read 13 articles from the school district “NewZella” site and answer questions. Well folks….. the first article was about the shooting in Texas. Absolutely nothing about one’s right to self defend, nothing about the 2nd Amendment. Nope! Only about how the Florida Parkland students had solidarity with the Texas students is creating “reasonable gun laws”. Another article was about how Prom King and Queen could be transgender. PURE DESPOTIC PROPAGANDA!! If that’s not enough, then she “answered questions”. WOW! These were not questions which required critical thinking or English language skills. Nope! There were plainly data collection on what position this child held toward their social agenda. Folks, the schools today are not only NOT EDUCATING kids, they are patently collecting data on kids so as to peg hole them in life by an overreaching, fascist government. They are plainly EVIL!!!!!! This child has been in private schools previous to this year and based on what I see, I would venture to say that this 7th grader has a far better education already than does her “college educated” teacher. PLEASE PARENTS!!!! Get you kids out of these “schools”. They are a real danger to your child.

BTW: This school is in the conservative state of South Carolina in a country town with a population of 540. How bad is it likely in the big city schools in Northern and Western States. GET YOUR KIDS OUT NOW !!!!!

Ask me how.

Thank you, Chris Berg, for reporting and admitting to blushing as you read the questions. Now, how about exposing the Youth Risk Behavior Survey with its “blushing” questions? According to one ND parent, who after picking up her child from school one day, said her daughter asked what “Oxxx SEX” meant. The mom said she almost crashed the car. Why did the child ask such a question? The YRBS (Youth Risk Behavior Survey) had just been administered at her child’s ND school. Chris Berg, will more reporting from you on all of this be coming shortly? Many parents and children will thank you for this and certainly there will be a special blessing from heaven for you, also.
UPDATED ALERT…..ND PARENTS LET’S SPEAK UP AND PUT AN END TO ALL OF THIS—EVEN THE YRBS WITH SEX QUESTIONS (links below) GIVEN TO OUR ND STUDENTS!!!
Inappropriate freshman physical science class assignment given in Parshall, ND. May 14. INSANE. Please note this dovetails right with….
The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) given to our ND students is from the CDC. How many parents are aware that the survey contains many vulgar sex questions. Links provided below for Middle and High School Survey questions. From the survey results, many funds/grants have been given to some schools deemed at risk due to the results. The validity of the results has and will always be in question due to the fact some kids just answer whatever way let alone that surveys with such questions of attitudes, behaviors, values, beliefs where no parent notification was given makes them “illegal”.

The Youth Risk Behavior Survey was developed in 1990 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor priority health risk behaviors that contribute markedly to the leading causes of death, disability and social problems among youth and adults in the United States.

Reading Plus was just approved after a one year trial in our district. I tried to get the board to vote against it and thought I had done it but then they went ahead anyway because our asst super of curriculum told the board that teachers and students that used it this year just love it!

before I found this source I tried to do a lesson on my own on the website. IT WAS HORRIFIC. Then I found this. Read the comments below. I really wonder if this is not a great idea to get our districts to stop buying this garbage.

My district dropped 266K on this garbage and another 218 on school city assessments. That is almost a half million bucks on garbage.

Any other info on reading plus. I will continue to bring the issues to our board regarding this. This will be in all of our middle schools and high schools next year. What a waste of money.

I remember getting a survey from someone on this asking us what we LIKED about Reading Plus, and what our kids liked, but nothing about what we didn’t like. I’ll bet they used that information as the green-light to go ahead.

It gave me a headache and blurry vision and i could only answer the comprehension questions based on prior knowledge. I go before the board to co test every single CBE purchase and for the last 4 years this same deputy super says the same bs. I’m sick and tired of school boards refusing to research any of this garbage.boards rubber stamp these purchases sight unseen with zero data to justify buying more CBE. Is there any way that we can educate our local school boards? We need more investigative journalism done by parents abs students.

Folks this has been in the works for a long time. Anita Hoge has been warning it was coming for years now.

In 1994, Anita Hoge was asked to testify as an Expert Witness, at the Department of Interior National Infrastructure Health and Education Data Security hearing. On December 8, 1994 she presented a paper entitled “Exposing The Medicalization of Schools.” This paper and presentation explained how Medicaid would become the financial vehicle mandating and remediating mental health outcomes. It documented how schools would be required to obtain a partial hospitalization license to bill for Medicaid through Mental Health Wrap-Around Services at school through the identification and re-definition of disabilities of ALL children as “AT RISK” through Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. This substantiated the following statement by Ira Magaziner of the Hillary Care hearings in Washington, D.C., in which he said: “Medicaid would merge into the main healthcare system.”

_____________

Education, Mental Health, and 2nd Amendment Gun Rights

Hillary’s agenda has always been control – control the kids and control guns… through mental health. If Hillary would get her way, mental health at school under the soothing banner of social, emotional, and behavioral standards, will fully implement her original plan from 1993, which will eliminate the 2nd Amendment by coding children with mental health disabilities.

ObamaCare, the successor to the HillaryCare plan, has funded school-based health/mental health services called Promise Neighborhood Schools, as a precursor to the next step in this agenda. ESSA has legislated Promise Neighborhoods and Community Schools which have now merged with ObamaCare. Here Common Core psychological standards have been legislated to identify and label kids as disabled for normal behavior using Title I and IDEA Special Education. CHILD FIND uses scavenging psychological techniques to identify and put as many normal children as possible into the brain-dipping meat grinder. (See my previous articles for extensive documentation on these key points.) These psychological techniques identify children who are leaders and followers. Leaders are the target for interventions. Go along to get along are the global citizens of tomorrow.

_____________

These intervention strategies will change our American children into the worker drones for the global economy birth to age 21. No child will escape, especially independent thinkers, children of patriotic parents, or any child who refuses to bend under the grip of these “change makers.”

The Common Core social, emotional, and behavioral aspects of our children, their personalities, are the target. CHILD FIND promises to find every normal American child and mold them to the international globalist agenda, Common Core and Common Core psych interventions.

Bill Clinton had a favorite slogan that was popular when he was President,
“It’s the Economy, Stupid.”

But, Hillary’s slogan is just as potent and much more dangerous,
“It’s mental health, stupid!”

Think the state is not taking over local control of traditional public schools? Think Again!

The decision by Tx Commissioner of Education Mike Morath highlights risky nature of PSJA Superintendent Daniel King’s scheme that promises to protect teacher rights while proposing a charter-like takeover of the entire district.

“The commissioner of education has published regulations that he is now simply ignoring,” said Texas AFT President Louis Malfaro. “His agenda of promoting charter school takeovers of public schools is more important to him than the rights of school employees spelled out in the law. In his rush to rubber stamp charter takeovers, he flouts his own regulations and violates the spirit of the law that speaks to the preservation of basic teacher rights.”

“All the assurances Superintendent King has been selling his teachers are being denied by TEA in the San Antonio case,” Malfaro said. “What the Commissioner is telling school districts (and by extension school district employees) is that even if districts want to preserve the rights of teachers and students in these contracts with partners, they can’t do it. These entities taking over the neighborhood schools have to have total autonomy in almost all areas, according to Commissioner Morath.”

Homeschool if you cannot afford a private school

__________

Homeschooling is not, in my opinion, a very good option

______________

homeschooling may be the only option for a family in order to obtain an education for their child. We must protect educational liberty which allows the parent-guardian to make educational decisions for their children, unlike school choice where the government makes the decisions.
But to dictate that every student must learn on a device and that is what is going on here. They can use any glamorous terminology they want it is wrong and still a one size fits all.

_______________

I’m not worried about individual teachers. I believe that, as teachers, we must refuse to comply with abusive policies.
because , when there are no more professional teachers ,
there will be no more “real” education” except for the very wealthy. ( and I speak as a refuser)

___________

I call it abuse of the worst kind.And teachers, although most do not like it, have been too slow to refuse to participate.( And I speak as a life long teacher and worried grandmother)

_____________

Every time a teacher implements anything in their classroom that packages learning, they are assembling the same box that will ship them out of a classroom.

_________

And to carry on with your perfect image, that same box will morph into a coffin for the “good little teachers” who tried to appease.!

___________

And NONE of this is what’s best for children. I promise you, it’s the CC standards themselves. They drive this machine of profit, data collection and mining. They drive the tech use and the related social dysfunctions. The Standards are the uranium in this bomb.

AMEN

Thank you for all of your very thoughtful responses. I’m hoping other parents – and maybe some teachers – will share their war stories. I knew this was going to be a disaster for my daughter from the outset. She is creatively gifted (although I hate to use the “g” word since so many people have an allergy to it). Past classroom awards she has received include “Most Animated Learner” and “Most Creative – For always being an original thinker.” How (and why) could anyone rein in all of that unbridled creative energy and try to shove it into little boxes? You’d have to break her first. The biggest tell in this is that she’s having the most difficult time in Language Arts. Language Arts! She writes books in her spare time, for goodness sakes! Really good books. But she’s being told that she needs to meet a long list of very dry standards, and told to “Be creative!” while slogging through all of the requirements. She stopped doing the work – and I really can’t blame her. Nothing ruins a fun time like a bunch of useless rules. Thanks for letting me vent.
____________
i am afraid you can talk to the district until you are blue on the face. There is only one thing you can do opt your child out of all technology period. No digital for assessments classwork, homework, or games etc and only allow pencil, paper, and books. However depending on where you are it may not be an option. You have to protect your child and ensure an environment that is comfortable for her needs and the public school setting may not be it. Know you are not alone your family is one of many.

Here is a post from a friend of mine:

DEAR, PARENTS WERE YOU POLLED? No? Me either. Let’s be clear this is UNION —->

The UNION letter was addressed to state Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia, who later said during a Newsday interview that NYSUT and other educational groups had been consulted before the state regulations were drafted.

The regulations would restrict the way that penalized districts spend federal Title I dollars by requiring them to set aside money to be used in encouraging greater student test participation, according to union analysts who have reviewed the 95-page regulatory document. (Hate to say it BUT, Told ya!)

Details on the amount of money to be set aside would be worked out after the regulations passed, education experts said.

In addition, “analysts” said, the proposed rules would change the way test-participation rates are factored into schools’ overall academic ratings, making it more likely that schools would be classified as scholastically deficient. (AGAIN, Told ya)

This could pressure reluctant parents into allowing their children to be tested, NYSUT officials said. (Wait, you guys supported passing ESSA right?)

The disputed regulations, posted last month by the state Education Department, are intended to meet requirements of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, which was approved in 2015. New York State’s Board of Regents is tentatively scheduled to take up the regulations for adoption at its next meeting June 11-12. (Of course they are, this is no surprise right?)

Previous state regulations required districts with low test participation to come up with plans for improvement but did not include sanctions like those evidently spelled out in the latest proposals. (Stop acting surprised will ya.)

Here is a post from an Ohio anti-Common Core group:

From Alice Linahan

In a nutshell-
While elections divide us- And, unelected bureaucrats like the Texas Commissioner of Education Mike Morath regulate us, and while America’s children are being shot in their classrooms; all of us are being controlled. How?

A system has been locked in place by both federal and state legislation. With government regulated “choice” comes accountability through rules and regulations by unelected bureaucrats.

Even if the US Department of Education is dismantled there are federal education dollars tied to mandates coming in via the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) from the Departments of HHS, Labor, Defense, and Education.

Below are the purposes of the College and Career Readiness/Common Core National Standards now codified into law through the passage of (WIOA) and the Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA).

Shifts Education Philosophy– from an education of Opportunity (Equal Opportunity) based on academics; reading, writing, math, and history to an education of equity (Equal Outcomes) based on attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors.
Broadened Impact – The College and Career Readiness/Common Core National Standards expand the target from K-12 (Kindergarten through 12th grade) to a P-20W (Pre-school through College, Trade or Graduate School) workforce system.
Testing Based Outcomes– The College and Career Readiness Common Core National Standards shifts from the “Mental” (Academics and Knowledge-Based Tests) to “Behaviors” (Performance Standards and Competency for the workforce).
Adjustments to Ideology– Change American’s worldview from nationalism into globalism and allows for a government controlled economy known as “Dirigisme” or the more common use–a dirigiste economy. It means essentially a state-directed economy.
Dismantle traditional public schools– With locally elected school boards, in favor of charter-like structures (public/private partnerships) that will be forced to generate student data for global corporate profit and state control.

This NEW system known as a P-20W system will now track, psychologically profile and sort students from Pre-school through the Workforce.

Eventually, any student who opts out of the P-20W system will not be able to get a job in the workforce. Competency-based credentialing begins in Pre-school with this system. Therefore, it negatively impacts a student who does not take the state or federal dollars.

When they say…
Every Student Succeeds they mean Lifelong learning so every student means EVERY American from pre-school through the workforce.

sex ed bad

________________

And here are some replies to said post:

Yes, I’ve known about him for years. His research subjects were generally men from mental hospitals and prisons. They participated in every kind of sexual deviancy known to man. He used this data to make it seem like this type of behavior was normal within the general population. That’s the equivalent of using members of an AA meeting to provide statistical proof that addictions are so ubiquitous that they must be typical human behavior.

______________

have your read Dr. Judith Reisman’s evidence? She was granted money by the US Dept of Justice to investigate Kinsey. Her proof was so powerful and truthful DoJ buried it.

______________

Yes, I am aware. I’m also aware of the trash…reworking of the DSM. How do you even begin to deal with this when it’s infected the culture to this extent?

_______________

I don’t recall reading anything specifically by her, but it doesn’t surprise me that evidence was buried. Kinsey has been the driving force behind so much of the sexual education movement, and of course comprehensive sexuality education is a very critical component to the overarching plan to destroy traditional morality. To do this, the plan’s proponents must undermine the thinking/reasoning centers of students and feed the emotional, instinct driven centers of the brain. It sure makes it a lot easier to move from a society focused upon individual action and accountability and founded upon “natural rights” to one that acts collectively and venerates “human rights” if you can move a large group of people to endorse your political platform based solely upon emotional appeal. Normalizing all types of sexuality also feeds the diversity beast and promotes the idol of “tolerance”.

My local news just reported that Charlotte-Mecklenberg schools are devoting over $40 million of it’s 2018-19 budget to pay for school psychologists, school social workers, etc. Teachers not set to receive any of the funds, so they are protesting tonight for an extra 5.9% raise on top of NC’s raise. Then, at tonight’s meeting, universal Pre-K implementation. Can anyone say #agenda?

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group:

Sometimes when I do the math I become very angry. Utah has just approved two new state wide testing contracts to replace the SAGE test. I added up the price tag for the two and the total is $80,243,642. Lets just say that a teacher’s benefit package equals $100,000 (which was not my case but lets pretend). These tests are costing the state of Utah the equivalent of 800 teachers. Will this test tell us more about the education of our students then 800 teachers could? Will it enhance our student’s education more then 800 teachers would?” Thanks Joylin Lincoln, very well said.

What irks me more is the pretending that RISE is somehow different from SAGE even though the questions are the same. What is a shiny new outhouse when you leave the inside the same? Just saying….

______________

And here are some replies to said post:

The rebranding price tag of $44,000 was more then my salary last year.

_____________

What happened today with the discussion for opt outs? With SAGE gone, is there still a parents right to opt out of these two tests?

_____________

Yes, they are applying for a moratorium for a year why they try to develop a plan.

______________

Spending another $80m of our taxpayer dollars to perpetuate common core. 😡

______________

Utah is going interoperable with other states with assessments. This is the next step towards the complete loss of local curriculum control. Parents need to understand that curriculum IS assessment and assessment IS curriculum. Common Core was always about “Next Generation Assessments.”

_______________-

both are STILL aligned to CCSS, both data rape students. I have researched both before. Let me know if you want the truth USBE left out

______________

It irks me too. It is so frustrating that the rebranding is happening. Every parent needs to know they are the same test. Opt out!

______________

It’s election time people! Let’s get out there, GET VOCAL and make sure we get pro-parent candidates who have their eyes open to what CC really is elected and fighting for what will ACTUALLY help our children’s education.

Here is a post from the anti-CBE group:

“Children are naturally curious and learning is naturally pleasurable. Small releases of dopamine in the brain encourages a child to persevere with the long-term difficult practice needed to build skills naturally over time, such as with sports, arts, and music.

What Silicon Valley is banking on, is to bypass human social interactions and community education experiences by hijacking children’s brains directly with more potent and powerful interactive technologies, where larger doses of dopamine are released, such as happens with drugs, video games and gambling. Their goal is to make the education software as addictive as possible, and they are quite up-front about that.”

And it then quotes another post:

“Many parents intuitively understand that ubiquitous glowing screens are having a negative effect on kids. But it’s even worse than we think. Recent brain imaging research is showing that they affect the brain’s frontal cortex — which controls executive functioning, including impulse control — in exactly the same way that cocaine does.

Technology is so hyper-arousing that it raises dopamine levels — the feel-good neurotransmitter most involved in the addiction dynamic — as much as sex. This addictive effect is why Dr. Peter Whybrow, director of neuroscience at UCLA, calls screens “electronic cocaine” and Chinese researchers call them “digital heroin…”

“The Edu-tech Revolution has begun. At this very moment new computer games and education software are being developed to teach children academics one-to-one via computers. Following on the success of the hi-tech gaming industry, the goal is to use technology to transform schooling.

By merging education and entertainment technologies, advocates and investors of these products stress the potential for educating children faster, more effectively and less expensively than schools currently do. Unfortunately, there are a number of potential problems.

First, many of these new programs are being designed to collect data from children so as to maintain individual personal profiles, that investors and corporations can utilize to design future products and monitor individuals as they move from education into the workforce. T

Moreover, some investors hope to use this data to construct what they expect will become a trillion dollar education market (such as we had with housing) to bundle and sell school and software investments on Wall Street.

Also VERY concerning, is that many Silicon Valley engineers are attempting to make edu-tech software as “pleasurable” as possible, using addictive video “gaming” strategies to design their education products.

Secretary Devos, carrying out the instructions of the publicly unknown members of the plan review committee, denied this waiver request.”

Here is a post from a New York anti-Common Core group:

The state’s Board of Regents, in a split vote Monday, tentatively agreed to controversial new rules aimed at school districts on Long Island and across New York where large numbers of students boycott state tests.

The new regulations — which among other provisions could result in some schools being required to set aside federal aid money to encourage greater student test participation — passed with 14 Regents in favor and three abstaining.

Regent Roger Tilles, who represents Nassau and Suffolk counties on the board, voted with the majority but expressed continuing concern over what he described as “onerous” sections of the regulations.

State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia, whose staff drafted the regulations, emphasized at the board meeting that a final Regents vote on the rules would not be held until September and that the public would have another opportunity to comment on the regulations in the meantime.

“Everybody didn’t get everything that they wanted,” the commissioner said. “But we came up, I think, with a very comprehensive plan.”

Some board members contended that parents and others with misgivings about Albany’s testing program probably would be confused by certain aspects of the new regulations, including the use of complex formulas to factor in test opt-out rates as part of school district’s academic ratings.

“I think our message is garbled,” said one of the Regents who abstained, Susan Mittler of Ithaca. “There is not an understanding of what these tests are and why we are asking children to take them.”

The rules, aimed at districts with high test-refusal rates, are part of broader regulations that would enforce a federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA, which was adopted in 2015.

ESSA, like a previous federal statute that it replaced, requires at least 95 percent of eligible students in every public school nationwide to take annual state tests in English and math. Only a handful of schools on Long Island meet that requirement due to a series of massive annual test boycotts.

In April, nearly half of all eligible students in Nassau and Suffolk counties — 91,974 in all — declined to take the state’s English Language Arts assessments in grades three through eight, a Newsday survey showed. The inquiry drew responses from 115 districts out of a regional total of 124.

The state’s latest regulations would affect schools falling below the 95 percent benchmark in several ways, both financial and academic.

On the fiscal side, the regulations would authorize the state education commissioner to take certain steps, “which may include requiring that the district set aside a portion of its Title I funds to use on activities to increase student participation in state assessments.”

Title I is a major federal program that provides more than $15 billion a year nationwide, mostly to help students struggling with their math and reading lessons.

Groups representing unionized teachers and the parent boycott have attacked the new rules, which are more sweeping than regulations initially proposed in April.

On Wednesday, leaders of New York State allies for Public Education, a statewide parent and education group, sent a letter to Elia contending that the rules would allow her to “impose a financial penalty” on districts — action that the state has not taken in the past. New York State United Teachers, a union group, takes the same position.

Elia aides disagree that the Title I set-asides would constitute a penalty. So does the Education Trust – New York, a nonprofit private agency based in Manhattan that supports ESSA as a means of raising academic achievement, especially among minority students.

Let’s NOT forget that parents were dismissed and told to stand in the corner. Take care of the teachers and APPR and it will trikle down dontcha know! Happy teachers will make happy classrooms, then they can “shut their doors and do what they need to do” they said.

SEVEN YEARS later, parents are still waiting for the teacher’s union to come out strongly against the reforms. Bill Gates said he needed 10yrs for the experiment, folks we are going into year 8.

When are we going to start to stop?

 Here is a post from the anti-CBE group:

GEF has released a new report. Peter Senge wrote the intro. I had extensive conversations last year with one of the authors concerning their last report and the dangers of so much celebration of an edutech-centric future.

Is this much better, a bit better or… not?

https://futuref.org/educationfutures

________________

And here are some replies to said post:

Can you imagine a radical shift in the way we teach kids to walk? Of course not.

The proposal of where we need to go is scary. “Societal wisdom” sure sounds like indoctrination.

Are the authors suggesting our founding fathers had no wisdom? The citizens who supported the noble ideals presented in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution had no societal wisdom?

We need to stop meddling in K-12 education, return to the proven practices to teach kids to read, write, do math and know stuff. The future belongs to them!

____________

“Protopia” sounds a lot like a pseudo-utopia wherein technology and AI will be used to “make today a little better than yesterday”. Tell that to the dying man, eh!

_____________

Biofeedback devices? Personal competence profile and personal reputation….??? 😦

_______________

This is all very exhausting! It’s hard for me to imagine learning this way. So many children and adults learn by doing, project-based learning, growing plants, drawing, painting, investigating how cells work, making new discoveries from manipulating variables, observation and study of animals, etc. The only way I see to counteract this technical system evolving for profit, is to work around it and create environments that most people can relate to, that draws them, ignites their interest, that pulls them into wanting to learn more. Much of what students have learned in the fragmented educational system has left them with the question, “Why do we need to know this?” When we get to work and collaborate ideas and expertise and create projects and hands-on real-life experiments that immediately show us why we are learning it, then maybe we can beat this thing. Being physical while working is also mentally and physically healthier. I don’t know, I think we better start collaborating with scientists, artists, horticulturist, farmers, culinary and nutritionists, environmental engineers etc, and create model learning environments in the real world for our future education. Whatever we teach, whether it is math or reading, we need to make many living connections to it.

____________

Working in the International Baccalaureate, I see this all the time: good ideas about student at the center of education then turned into a massive set of criteria and metrics surrounded by impenetrable language and constant micromanaging of the students themselves. This is not what is needed; it is just another competence based system with fancy graphics. We need kids in real life with real people and real problems.

______________

totally agree. It’s often all about hidden control, for various motives, like sales of tech metric systems to teachers fearing chaos in class, but perhaps most of all, states fearing critical citizens.

_____________

and of course fearing chaos in class comes from large classes of disaffected students, so there is a positive feedback loop that is constantly, if not purposefully, amplified.

______________

Exactly. I think we need a deep study into loop cycles that make matters worse, and stack logical expansion on logical expansion into madness, like if one test works, why not two, why not prepare for the tests better, why not drop everything else just to be sure students score the best, then why not bring in tech that measures every tiny choice leading up to the test, and why not then call those who fail or drop out losers? etc. Similar with our whole society and surveillance. oh boy.

______________

And another post from this group:

Wow-just wow. “However, we added a little wrinkle just to be spicy. Working with our behavioral research team, we modified a player’s charity vote by their in-game honor level, or how sportsmanlike and pleasant they were to play with. The higher their in-game honor level, the more weight their vote carried. Our goal was to link the in-game behavior to real-world implications in order to help change the self-narrative of players, both in and out of the game…We are excited to continue exploring what we can do to help mobilize our players (and ourselves) to keep making social impact and changing the narrative about what it means to be a gamer.”

Riot Games is funding Institute of Play, which is promoting gamification of education. If folks are looking for a summer read, check out Daniel Suarez’s books “Daemon” and “Freedom.” The first is a bit schlocky, but you have to read it to get to the next one which is more thoughtful IMO.

_____________

Yes, exactly. And they are adopting all the best ideas from positive and motivational psychology, emphasizing social and emotional intelligence and growth mindset. BUT, they don’t just want to help support these skills, they want to measure and assess them, monitor students, rank and score them.

_______________

It’s really the old repackaged with new language. We have already seen what schools have been doing around the nation. I have been in schools recently that have 50 kids in one classroom all sitting facing a computer screen. Charter schools around here are not held accountable at all. I worked for a school that took all of my language, and still uses it today but does not have a program that represents the language.

Yes, education has become highly profitable with the charter schools and new Edtech methods which they call “personalized” “learner-centered” and competency based. But it really means more time putting kids on computers.

I haven’t done much research on the advisors, though a number of Emily’s posts discuss Vander Ark. GEFF is headed by Pavel Luksha, with the Skolkovo Institute in Russia.

“The primary operator of GEFF is Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, a world-class research institution co-founded by Skolkovo Foundation (Russia) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA).

#Deepshit We live in a system where profit at the cost of the whole is rewarded, where destruction of nature makes sense, and smart new forms of slavery are welcomed by the ‘owners’. We live in a system where children either learn to support the system, for if they’ll fail, they’ll feed the system with forced labour if need be. Countless people seek alternatives, seek change, address issues. But the core is rotten, succesfull change far away. Ideas of how to change it are many, but none yet succesfully going viral across the globe igniting a massive shift. What essential arguments, would make all eyes go open en all teachers join the revolution? Sadly the insights above, many here will share, aren’t doing it.

One of the early pioneers of Facebook and its first President Sean Parker, voiced his regret regarding helping create social media in the form we know it today, saying:

“I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because of the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other… God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”

Parker says the social networking site exploits human psychological vulnerabilities through a validation feedback loop that gets people to constantly post to get even more likes and comments.

“It’s exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology,” he said. “The inventors, creators — it’s me, it’s Mark [Zuckerberg], it’s Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it’s all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway.”  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-21/depressing-chart-mark-zuckerberg-does-not-want-you-see

Here is a post from the Utah anti-Common Core group:

Moms and Dads in Millard County. Guess what? Your district has now become the pilot rural district for “personalized,” global-citizen-based, curriculum. If you wonder why your kids are getting Google Chromebooks, it’s because your district has sold out to UNESCO—the UN’s education ministry.

Millard District has received a grant to partner with the Consortium for School Networking. The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) is a partner with UNESCO—the UN’s education ministry. President Trump and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have called UNESCO anti-Israel for a reason. If you need that translated, it means anti-Christian.

This technology partnership is designed to, eventually, gut local curriculum control through online learning. UNESCO is heck-bent on sexualizing curriculum worldwide. This is well documented. Just do a quick search for UNESCO, Planned Parenthood and Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). CSE is designed to integrate throughout online, globalized curriculum—including through subjects like Digital Citizenship and Digital Literacy.

Dads. On this Father’s Day, this is your battle cry. Don’t march in Millard’s 4th of July parade, or bother watching it, unless you truly defend America’s children—your children. Rise up and protect your children from these soul-destroying, globalist tyrants. You’re selling your souls for a mess of pottage.

I grew up in rural Utah. Dads in rural Utah “get” freedom and what it takes to defend and maintain it. It’s time, Dads.

___________

wow.

________________

“there is need for ongoing technical guidance, mentorship and supervision of teachers; moreover training for school inspectors is required to ensure there are mechanisms in place to ensure effective monitoring at the district level.”

_____________

Yep. They’re tracking districts through the data systems.

____________

I’m in Millard County and often wondered about the Chromebooks… what do I do about it? Can I keep my kids off of them?

____________

Yes! You are the parents!!

___________

But, just know that the school will likely challenge you because the entire district is starting to grade children on their global competencies: values, attitudes and behaviors.

__________

The reason they need each child on their own Chromebook is that children are supposed to be moved from 3x per year assessments into curriculum-embedded assessment so that their behaviors can be tracked (and shaped) continuously. When your children can’t be tracked, their “growth” can’t be measured and so the school gets caught between federal laws for student growth measurements and parental rights to control curriculum.

__________

The district has received a grant so they cannot back away from this plan now. They have chosen money over parental rights.

_____________

Please, do what you can to protect your own kids and keep us posted on this thread on how the district and school react. They will tell you that local/state teachers are developing the curriculum, and there’s nothing to worry about. But. The young teachers are being trained to choose pre-curated curricukum. Often, they don’t actually vett the curriculum. And, logistically, they can’t vett it if every child is learning something different on a computer-adaptive platform. When the online curriculum adapts, in real time, it can’t be vetted—by design.

___________

I would encourage you to watch the video I posted above where I explain the goal for Google, Microsoft and UNESCO. Share it with any parents who will listen. I would be happy to come to Millard and give the presentation in person too, where I could answer questions.

____________

Prayers for you and yours!

__________

I spoke with the principal at the high school about their increased usage of electronic learning last year and how it was affecting my kids and unfortunately it fell on deaf ears.

_____________

In our school district’s enrollment process, there is a question that asks parents if we would allow internet access. Does your enrollment process ask that? If so, just say no. And even if it doesn’t, just tell the teacher you want paper printouts for everything. No online assignments.

____________

Our district does digital citizenship and I opted my kid out. I later found out that one of the software questions asks kids if they considered a truck a gift option for a boy birthday and a doll a gift option for a girl birthday. When answered yes, the student was told that is a sexist thing to think and then it explained why. This was through the (not-so) Common Sense Media online program. This group has backed legislation here in CA that is anti parental rights under the guise of “helping” kids. Thankfully it was defeated, for now. The group frequently backs children’s privacy legislation but their own privacy statement does not. Complete hypocrisy! Wolves in sheep’s clothing all over the place!

______________

The power of Common Sense Education is in their content curation systems which are starting to precurate online content for teachers. Have you seen Common Sense’s Digital Citizenship curriculum for 6th-8th graders? I can email it to you if you want to message me your email.

____________

I have had a preview of it through an hour long district presentation. But more info. would be great! I will message you my e-mail. I know they also give surveys at the end without parental notification or permission. CSM is a huge political thorn in my side! The Steyer brothers are political activists and Chelsea Clinton is on their advisory board. Bad news all around.

_______________

Yep. Bad news! And with teacher training favoring their friend Darling-Hammond’s SEL (InTASC) Standards, it’s going to get much harder for parents to fight Common Sense curriculum integration into the schools.

WE KNEW IT!! Unions will hold hostage schools in the Fall? Rumbling across states of Fall mass strikes

“Ms. Harrison urges a change in public schools from “an education model” to a “medical/behavioral/tactical model” where teachers will become well versed in medicine, fire arms handling and psychology so as to be better able to do the government’s work of treating, protecting and molding the minds of the state’s children.

Of course, it’s all tied together with more training, more administration and more money for the public school leviathan. So it goes. Big government grows bigger by creating legions of government employees represented by big government supportive unions who have a vested interest in supporting even bigger government. The rest of us are left to watch and experience government’s continual incremental takeover of just about everything…”

Here is a post from a Washington anti-Common Core group:

**The History of Goals 2000**
In 1989, a coalition of state governors concerned about the ailing state of America’s public schools proposed a solution: “Goals 2000.” This program would set educational goals for the nation’s public schools to be achieved by the year 2000, create a framework for implementing the goals, and provide incentives for the states to cooperate in meeting the goals.
By 1994, the eight national goals were in place and Goals 2000 was an official federal program.

The Eight National Goals

1. By the year 2000, all children will start school ready to learn.

2. By the year 2000, the high school graduation rate will increase to at least 90 percent.

3. By the year 2000, all students will leave grades 4, 8, and 12 having demonstrated competency over challenging subject matter including English, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, and geography, and every school in America will ensure that all students learn to use their minds well, so they may be prepared for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment in our Nation’s modern economy.

4. By the year 2000, the Nation’s teaching force will have access to programs for the continued improvement of their professional skills and the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to instruct and prepare all American students for the next century.

5. By the year 2000, United States students will be the first in the world in mathematics and science achievement.

6. By the year 2000, every adult American will be literate and will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in a global economy and exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

7. By the year 2000, every school in the United States will be free of drugs, violence and the unauthorized presence of firearms and alcohol and will offer a disciplined environment conducive to learning.

8. By the year 2000, every school will promote partnerships that will increase parental involvement and participation in promoting the social, emotional, and academic growth of children.

Warriors, take note: the merger of Ed and Labor will not rest solely on PreK to College education, but on every single American citizen in need of going to work or getting ‘education’ to earn credentials TO work.
The merger will NOT close the U.S. Dept. of Education, but enlarge it. The merger will disrespect your school choice.
Both Ed and Labor Cabinet Agencies are ILLEGAL. Why do we need to comply?
We should revolt.

Here is a post from Women on the Wall:

“Jane Robbins, senior fellow at American Principles Project (APP), told Breitbart News in a statement the administration’s proposal is “riddled with problems.”

“Rather than returning government to the people as the president promised, it centralizes government,” she said. “It codifies the Common Core-type workforce development model of job training, rather than genuine education, and gives Big Business outsized influence on what happens in schools. It promotes data sharing and citizen tracking for the benefit of a government-managed economy. It’s a mess. We can only hope Congress rejects it outright.”

In an interview with Breitbart News, Eunie Smith, president of the Eagle Forum, said the administration’s proposal is mind-boggling in its apparent acceptance that it is the role of the federal government to plan the workforce.

Smith said the proposal is a “Jeb Bush-type plan” that suggests “the only purpose of education is to prepare a citizen for a slot in the workforce.”

“Rather than equip an individual to pursue whatever goal he sets for himself as part of his God-given freedom, this is, instead, the German model being pushed by misguided business interests and some state interests,” she explained. “As a result, the type of education an individual would receive would be influenced by crony corporations dictating to schools the skills needed for future workers.”

And here is a reply to this post:

I still remember the day my principal stood before me in a staff meeting (way back in about 2000?) and asked, “what should be the purpose of education? Shouldn’t it be workforce ready?” I was like No. Hell no.
That was back in NCLB years (and anyone who complained, about how we were actually REDUCING education, and NARROWING it, was accused of just suffering from the soft bigotry of low expectations ) and I’ve had to watch the nonsense train ever since, especially since it’s through constant measuring and torturing of data in accountability that forces compliance.
So, Big business and monopoly power, has already changed the purpose of education to fit big business, –mostly, but not completely–this is just a final continuation of that and digital makes it all the easier.
Two words: Powell Memo. Oh, and one more: Greed.

Here is a post from a New York anti-Common Core group that helps explain why more attacks are happening at schools:

“…Under Mayor de Blasio, the Department of Education required teachers provide full documentation of a range of non-punitive interventions to at least three midlevel offenses before asking their principal to issue a suspension. Principals, in turn, had to apply in writing to a central office that often rejected their requests.”

The letter lays out the master plan of the Clinton Administration to take over the entire U.S. educational system so that it can serve national economic planning of the workforce.

The letter makes it clear that Hillary participated in the development of that plan some time before the election, though it was scarcely reported at the time. The plan is sweeping in scope, and largely signed into law in 1994 by Clinton’s Democratically controlled Congress (in the Goals 2000 Act, the School-to-Work Act, and the reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act).

That legislation continues to move our system today, and is being implemented in all fifty states, driven by money and mandates from the federal level.

[name withheld], you regularly do yeoman’s work to expose the economic and workforce development agenda (and for anyone chancing to read this comment who hasn’t figured it out yet, workforce development is simply the education arm of economic development). This article is yet another example. Thank you. You and [name withheld]  are two of my preferred sources when I’m looking for details to back up what I’ve been saying to the conservative and libertarian crowds for a long, long time now–that the economic/workforce development agenda is not free, open, or voluntary in any way. It is, rather, the exploitation of the many by the few.

_______________

I chuckled when you said that people seemed confused by your presence. I’m sure they were. The whole goal of the economic/workforce development crowd is to do their deals in a way that excludes the rest of us. And to a large extent they’ve succeeded in keeping it this way because most people are (sadly) not going to go to the lengths you do to investigate, analyze, and understand what is being done to them and their children in the name of “public good.”

_____________

We are up against giants. Now that I‘ve seen the machine, I have to contest it. I‘ll go down swinging anyway.

____________

Just an addendum…You know, we’ve been trained so thoroughly, most of us. Folks on the so-called “Left” have been conditioned to side with the unions as at least the more trustworthy of government “partners.” Folks on the so-called “Right” have been conditioned to believe that the unions are the devil, while Big Business is the great savior. It occurs to very few that corruption pervades all of these institutions/groups, that they’re all mixing it up together to a greater or lesser degree, depending on what’s to be gained…and that none of them can be trusted to do the right thing. It’s up to us, and us alone, to engage and expose the truth. I thank you for all you do to disabuse people of the notion that the people who pose as saviors are anything of the kind, to let the corrupt know we’re watching, and to put the truth out there for all to see. I am more than grateful for you.

I was particularly peeved when both teachers unions threw us under the bus. While I dread the thought of no unions at all, what use are they if they’re bought out by Bill Gates? At the first NPE convention, Diane Ravitch extracted a promise from both unions not to accept more Gates’ money. Three days later, they accepted a grant from him.

In Chicago? I was there. I heard that promise from both union leaders. And sad to say, I was not surprised when they both broke those promises. What is more surprising to me is that Ravitch and the rest of the NPE crowd, some of whom are extremely intelligent, principled people (Cody, Burris, others) have failed to take a stance that holds union leadership to any substantive account.

I wasn’t there, but I followed the convention online. I will never forget it either. Or forgive.

Have you seen this? Ohio just voted down a bill to combine the state’s school, university and workforce development systems into a single new Department of Learning and Achievement — and now here it is at the Federal level. Plus MORE!

https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Government-Reform-and-Reorg-Plan.pdf

And frankly it’s a miracle that Ohio voted the measure down. Now that the Feds are openly heading that direction, Ohio is likely to follow suit…unless the people of Ohio throw themselves on the train tracks.

With the Feds pushing it, no need for states to do it too. Or maybe it was our legislators growing a backbone. Or Kasich wanting to appear to thwart Trump without actually doing so. Like the old Chinese curse, we DO live in interesting times.

The Feds will do what the Feds always do. They’ll pass enabling legislation that incentivizes the states to go out and do likewise. In a word: comply.

Kindergarten coders: When is too early to put kids in front of screens?
Updated: JUNE 27, 2018 — 5:00 AM EDT

YONG KIM / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER
Jennifer Lentz with her children (right to left) Bryan, 7, Daisy, 4, and Thomas, 9, reading in their Swarthmore home. Lentz has concerns about her children’s screen time exposure.
by William Bender & Kristen A. Graham – Staff Writers

Last year, Jeremy Seedorf’s 9-year-old daughter and her classmates received tablet computers from their Lancaster County school. He wouldn’t let her bring one home: “The iPads were coming, and there was nothing we could do about it.”

In the Neshaminy School District, Jessica Reeder was taken aback when she discovered that her daughter had to use the Internet to do her 1st-grade homework: “That was a little bit concerning to us.”

Jennifer Lentz limits screen time at home for her sons, but she can’t stop the increasing amount they are getting in class at their Delaware County elementary school: “There are a lot of parents who feel like me. But I think they feel defeated.”

Hadi Partovi might consider that a victory.

Partovi, a tech entrepreneur and co-founder of the nonprofit Code.org, is leading a national effort to convince schools that more and younger is better when it comes to coding and computer science. Tech giants Microsoft, Facebook and Google are among Code.org’s financial backers. The goal is to fill the next generation of computer-related jobs.

Code.org has expanded its reach even as parents such as Seedorf, Reeder and Lentz try to slow the tech tide for their own children.

Twenty-five percent of all U.S. students now have Code.org accounts and 800,000 teachers use the site for class lessons, according to the nonprofit. Partovi said two-thirds of all 5th graders in the country have an account.

“It’s mind blowing, considering it’s something I started five years ago,” Partovi, an early investor in Facebook and Airbnb, said in a recent interview with the Inquirer and Daily News.

Code.org, headquartered in Seattle, has been pressing states to pass laws and adopt policies that support computer science, and, by extension, put technology in the hands of students at a younger age.

“Many would say we’re leading the movement,” Partovi said.

Gov. Wolf has embraced the tech approach, hoping to fill an estimated 17,000 to 21,000 computer-related jobs in Pennsylvania. Advocates say early access to technology in schools can help break the cycle of poverty for disadvantaged students.

“There is definitely a supply and demand gap,” Judd Pittman, a STEM consultant to state education secretary Pedro Rivera, said of unfilled jobs that require computer skills.

Wolf’s latest budget proposal includes a $50 million job training initiative to improve STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and computer-science education. At a summit being held in Harrisburg this week, elementary school teachers can take Code.org’s one-day computer science fundamentals course. Over the past year, more than 1,300 teachers have been trained through a collaboration between the state’s intermediate units and Code.org.

In New Jersey, where Code.org says demand for computer jobs is even higher, all high schools are now required to offer computer science classes. Code.org and its partners have provided K-5 computer science training to 3,350 teachers.

Code.org has had remarkable success in advancing its agenda by offering free programs for schools and through a social-media-savvy marketing campaign and lobbying. It has raised $70 million since 2013. So far, 43 states have adopted education policies supporting computer science, Partovi said.

In Pennsylvania, Code.org has hired Bala Cynwyd lobbyist Sean Reilly, who served as political director for former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum. Reilly said Code.org is seeking state funding for computer-science training for teachers. The state has endorsed computer-science standards and now allows those courses to count toward graduation, he said.

Code.org’s critics, however, question whether Silicon Valley should have so much influence over public education.

“Why is Bill Gates concerned about schools? He sees it as another market. He sees students as workers,” said Paul Thomas, an education professor at Furman University and a former high school English teacher. Thomas doubts the value of teaching so narrow a skill as coding.

“It’s better to teach them literacy, numeracy, how to think, how to be critical,” Thomas said, “so then they can kind of adapt to whatever the future requires.”

Lentz and other like-minded parents worry not just about excessive screen time, Internet addiction and data privacy. They ask whether the new courses are being taught too early in the name of workforce development – and at the expense of more fundamental skills, like critical thinking, empathy and collaboration.

“They should be doing what kids do and not thinking about their careers, when they’re eight years old, in a field they may not even go into,” said Lentz, a former Philadelphia assistant district attorney whose sons are in the 1st and 3rd grades.

Alison McDowell, a Philadelphia education activist and mother of a high school junior, questions Code.org’s motives.

“They’re pushing it down into really young grades,” she said. “Do we send kids to school so Oracle can pay people less because they have twice as many people for the jobs?”

Partovi, a father of three, describes computer science as a “basic foundation” for current and future jobs, not just in the tech industry, but in government, finance, manufacturing, entertainment and other industries looking to hire technology talent.

“The screen time, I think, is harmful when kids are just watching movies or playing video games,” Partovi said. “But if a student is creating a video game, that’s very different. Taking that away from a student would be like taking a paint brush away from a student that’s learning to paint.”

At Ridge Park Elementary school in Conshohocken, five- and six-year-olds are introduced to coding through Kodable, an education program with the tagline, “Learn to code before you know how to read.” Teacher Brian Adams said such lessons emphasize perseverance, problem solving and efficiency.

“I tell them to think logically,” said Adams, who has been using Kodable for four years at the K-3 school. “You’re trying to get from point A to point B. What’s the best way to get there?”

Mimi Ito, a cultural anthropologist at the University of California, Irvine who has researched educational software, noted that the American Academy of Pediatrics has loosened its screen time guidelines for children, emphasizing instead high-quality programming and parental involvement.

“If your kid is doing something valuable and creative at school and happens to use devices, I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong with it,” Ito said.

In the Philadelphia school district, 129 schools have a digital literacy and technology teacher for grades K-8. Students can learn to program a spherical robot called Sphero through a Bluetooth-connected iPad, then use it, for example, to power a model boat or test a model bridge. They have programmed an Ozobot robot to follow a paper map of the Underground railroad, with colored markers, not a screen.

“We want students to understand coding, but in context with everything that’s going on, because that’s how our world is,” said Luke Bilger, senior project manager in the district’s office of education technology. “Everything you do, there’s some sort of programming involved.

Parent Bob Stewart is taking it a step further, supplementing his 8-year-old daughter’s education at Anne Frank Elementary School with a week-long robotics camp this month.

“I want her to understand that she can do these types of things,” Stewart said. “I think it’s important, almost like another language. I don’t know where the jobs are going to be in the next 10 or 15 years.”

But demand is also up for no-tech education at the Waldorf School of Philadelphia, a small private school in Germantown that teaches children from 24 months until eighth grade – without iPads, Chromebooks, or any screens whatsoever. There is a waiting list for first grade and other programs, according to Alexandra Borders, the school’s director of advancement and enrollment.

“I used to have to explain why we’re a tech-free school,” Borders said. “Now, I find parents are actually searching us out. They get it.”

Several Silicon Valley executives and other tech industry employees from companies like Apple, Yahoo and eBay have sent their children to Waldorf schools.

So does Zack Seward, the Philadelphia-based editor-in-chief of technology news network Technical.ly. His 7-year-old daughter will be entering the 1st grade at the Kimberton Waldorf School this year and his 4-year-old son will start kindergarten.

“Skills like being present and thinking creatively and imaginative play are so much more important than any technical skills that can be offered at a young age,” Seward said. “It bums me out when I see a kid absorbed in a phone.”

Seedorf, the Lancaster County parent and guidance counselor, has since relented and allows his now 10-year-old daughter to bring her school-issued iPad home to manage her school assignments. But he thinks the “train is moving too fast” when it comes to technology initiatives that are getting schoolchildren online at earlier ages.

“It’s like everyone is caving and accepting this is the new norm,” he said, “and not taking into account what some of the consequences might be.”

And here are some replies to said post:

This year in Virginia our Standards of Learning include standards to be met in computer science in grades k-12. Code.Va is offering teachers free professional development to incorporate the standards as they’re incorporated into so many subjects. I’ve asked if the teachers will be paid for their PD time but no response. I don’t think they are being paid to do this training and right there we have people working for free for corporations.

______________

The thing I don’t get is what exactly do they mean by “coding”? There are many different computer languages and they change over time. One thing that does need to be taught – and not in kindergarten, more like middle/high school – is computer literacy. Not tablets, computers. How to save a file, how to hook up a printer, stuff like that.
One needs to have a good foundation of math skills, writing, and logic to code. It’s not just learning to code.

_____________

My sense is coding will be the next sweat shop, low wage work required to manage cyber warfare threats posed by the vast expansion of IoT. They don’t want thinkers, questioners or designers.

______________

You got it. It’s all about expanding the labor pool to decrease worker pay and compensation and increase insecurity knowing you can easily be replaced. Meantime actual top-tier coders and CS people are saying that future coding will be AI-assisted and won’t require writing base-level code as much as an being able to design, create, and critically curate systems.

__________________

I once led a CS PD with New York High school teachers focusing on defending against digital surveillance and critiquing Facebook and the social impacts of automated systems and algorithmic bias. My sense was that such critical “digital literacy” skill-development was not what the higher ups behind the CS push were interested in. They wanted kids coding, not exploring ethics, thinking critically about the unseen embedded values and biases in digital networks, or how these systems work as mechanisms of social control, exploitation, and oppression.

#Read this study commissioned by Google for Education.

Who knew Google played a role in the ed-workforce talent (data) pipeline? But of course Google is involved in this–it’s good for business, right? No need for knowledge when you can Google it. More users dependent on Google means more data, more ads, more marketing…more Google business. As Google points out in the study, “Technology has a central role to play in skills development.” Chromebooks, G-Suite, Google Classroom, Google app bundles are ready to help!… and Google today is teaming up with Common Sense Media to create Digital Citizenship Curriculum. How …fitting.)
———–
Google for Education commissioned a 2015 study entitled, Driving the skills agenda: Preparing students for the future. The report apparently tries to predict how to best prepare for an unknown future and jobs that don’t yet exist, as evidenced by the following quotes,

“This research programme, sponsored by Google, [is] to examine to what extent the skills taught in education systems around the world are changing. For example, are so-called 21st-century skills, such as leadership, digital literacy, problem solving and communication, complementing traditional skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic? And do they meet the needs of employers and society more widely?”

“How can education best prepare young people to navigate their way through an increasingly interconnected and complex world in which factual recall will perhaps matter less than their ability to understand differing perspectives?”

“As proponents of 21st-century skills point out, we have no way of knowing what challenges tomorrow’s graduates will face, and still less what jobs will exist for them to apply for. The best education can hope to do is to equip students with sufficiently transferable skills to be able to respond to whatever the future holds.”

“The business executives surveyed agree that broadening access to technology in schools and universities is one of the top three ways in which the education system in their countries could benefit business.”
——-
Tech in schools to benefit business. That’s rich. What about education benefitting …children?
——-
If the Trump Administration is looking to do a little pruning with their recent proposal; maybe they can **instead**, hone their focus and make some cuts to the unconstitutional, incredibly expensive, non-consensual student data pipeline.

Additionally, WQDI grantees are expected to use this data analysis to create materials (i.e., scorecards) on state workforce performance to share with workforce system stakeholders and the public.” https://www.doleta.gov/performance/workforcedatagrant09.cfm

Crypto industry fires back after EU vote to block ‘unhosted’ wallets
The crypto industry has reacted strongly against a European Union Parliament committee voting in favor of a regulatory package for tighter Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules for ”unhosted” private wallets.
The new guidelines would require crypto service providers — most common exchanges — to verify the identity of every individual behind an unhosted wallet that interacts with them, while any transaction greater than 1,000 euros, or $1,100, would need to be reported to authorities.
Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong vented his frustrations against the move via Twitter, drawing comparisons with fiat to highlight the absurdity of reporting and verifying a 1,000 euro transaction:

North America’s fertilizer market is projected to witness a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period (2022-2027). CO-VID-19 had a direct and negative impact on the value chain of the fertilizer market in North America. The lockdown in different countries affected the export-import and the distribution system adversely. The restricted movement all over the region created a shortage of raw materials required to produce fertilizer over a shorter term. This led to manufacturers’ use of the emergency stock of raw materials for continuing production.
Decreasing agricultural land area, Investments in R&D, and increasing awareness among the farmers regarding the need for nutrients and the crop yield are the major drivers that will boost the demand for fertilizers in the country. However, rising environmental issues and increasing demand for organic farming will likely restrain the market’s growth.
The 6 biggest fertilizer exporters are Russia, mainland China, Canada, Morocco, United States of America and Saudi Arabia. Collectively, those major suppliers accounted for over half (52.6%) of globally exported fertilizers during 2021.

The fkn financial grubs want to put a price on everything. Now the whole world of nature they think they can trade. Carbon trading is opening a door to these financial psychopaths, where they want to put a price on and trade every tree, and all water. They are already holding animals to their ransom, such as cows and methane. They are slicing up the world, itemising it, cataloging it, ready to trade it. This is a monopoly game on a global scale. Who says these grubs own the animals, the rainforests? Well, the system they are creating will say they do. Remember they want you to own nothing and be happy.

What’s next? Trading humans for their carbon use? You bet! They will track our carbon inputs and outputs, and they will make money on each of us. You will need carbon credits, and if you dont have enough, you cant do what you want, like eat meat or travel.

The financial psychopaths want it all. We are always slaves to the financial systems and the low vibrational creatures that create and run it. They truly are demons.

Digital IDs, surveillance, Smart Cities, transhumanism, etc Stories Part 2

Due to all the stories I’ve found in such a short period of time, I thought it best to make a part 2 already due to Part 1 being too long.

Here is a post from a friend of mine:

“Smart Tabs” – “Superior Compliance”
The Future Of Pharmacy
Real-Time Monitoring You From The “Inside”…

According to a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, medication non-adherence is growing rapidly. Medication non-adherence is when a patient does not take a medication, as their doctor prescribes. This often results in higher rates of hospital admissions, suboptimal health outcomes, increased morbidity and mortality, and increased health care costs, depending on the condition and patient.

So, where to from here? We’re all aware and awake enough to see the hegelian dialectic at play. This ‘Optus data breach ohhhh-la-la’ is kindergarten level stuff.

For now, the so-called ‘Trusted Digital Identity’ is opt-in / voluntary. For how long will this be the case? What critical threshold do the technocrats have in mind before the ID becomes -compulsory- ? What will it mean for those that do not acquiesce? As all records (driving/birth/title/etc) being moved into interoperability with ‘trusted digital ID’s’ . . . what will it mean to own a property? Will ‘rates’ be impossible to pay without your ability to prove you’re a ‘trusted person’ through compliance with the digital ID? Will it become impossible to attain or renew a drivers licence, if it’s not interoperable with the digital ID?

Will there be a popular groundswell against the notion of a biometric digital ID? Such that the critical threshold for compulsion is never met?

What alternative story can we tell to debunk the technocratic lust for complete control via biometric ID/social credit/geofencing?

Just a year or so before convid1984, Australia digitized medical records in a program called My Health Record – it was nominally “opt-in” but was not a simple checkbox next to “No thanks” – it was only ACTIVELY opt out – ie. default was opt in – rather than being actively opt in with opt out default – and they made it hell to opt out – it took me 2 full months to opt out – excruciating stonewalling, run around, buck passing and hoop jumping – doubtless many gave up a few days into trying.

Schools and other entities to have access to all vaccine records, rather than just those of their students/patients or the particular vaccines required for school. This bill would, until January 1, 2026, additionally authorize schools, childcare facilities, family childcare homes, and county human services agencies to use the specified immunization information, in the event of a public health emergency, to perform immunization status assessments of pupils, adults, and clients.

Our PA state legislators are bamboozling the good People of PA by passing legislation deploying 5G wireless and mislabeling it as “broadband.” This is NOT broadband! Broadband internet is from WIRED FIBER OPTIC CABLES, and we already paid for fiber optics to the premises (FTTP) for fast, safe, secure internet service for the entire state- even for rural areas! Our legislators are committing MASSIVE fraud on MANY levels by deploying harmful RF/MW radiation instead. The wireless grid not only pollutes our environment with hazardous RF/MW radiation, but is also utilized for total surveillance, and is an attempt to restructure America’s economic system with a digital currency connected to a social credit system. This is a direct threat to our freedoms, individual rights, sovereignty, and bodily autonomy. Please message me or email pasafetech@gmail.com if you want to get involved to stop the deployment of the wireless surveillance grid and demand the FTTP we already paid for instead!

Digital IDs, surveillance, Smart Cities, transhumanism, etc Stories

While I’d originally, in part because of how close they often ran together, stories on Agenda 21, smart cities, digital IDs, etc into the anti-Common Core blog section (and some may still be added due to already having been put in my notes (which I’ve stored and been procrastinating on adding to the blog, even after the switchover, so they may appear after I said I’d switch them to here.)), now I’ve been making separate sections for these. I’ve decided to make a separate blog section for digital ID, surveillance, and smart city-related stories.

Looks like Turd’s digital ID is tied to the World Economic Forum:

____________________

Here is a post from a friend of mine from Tulsa:

Consider: employers will own employees’ digital twins. They say it’s to free up employees from repetitive tasks, enable them to work in many places, etc. Really, it’s so that – even if a person quits the firm – the company can continue to employ his digital twin for efficiency and expertise.

Now imagine: What if “your” digital twin makes a large and costly mistake (due to insufficient data input)? The firm suffers, your former colleagues are furloughed. One of them runs into you a few weeks later, punches you in the gut, and says, “Do you know what your digital twin did to us, you jerk?!”

Or this: You take pride in your work, which consists in providing service to customers in person, on the phone, and via the web. It’s all surveilled and the company’s algorithms can imitate your approach to a tee. One day your firm announces another pay reduction and increases your working hours. You’re fed up and decide to quit, thinking that your egress will get their attention since, after all, you were always tops on the leaderboard. You give your notice. You receive an automated message that says, “We’re sorry to see you go, but having your digital twin around will ensure that we never forget all your contributions to this firm.” Then you realize that they not only knew you were about to leave, they actually nudged you out. Because you had adequately trained your twin, and at that point you became redundant. “Oh well,” you think, “I’ll go someplace else, start over.” But when you apply for other positions, you keep receiving the same notice: “We’re sorry – your application matches too closely the profile of one of our digital employees. Please up-skill yourself and try again. For resources on adaptability and resilience, please visit our Restoring Human Workers Portal.” You discover that your old firm recently got into the business of mass-producing and distributing digital employees and your twin was the model.

Note the touted benefit of ‘similations’ enabled by AI via twinning & transferrable to actuality. This is exactly how the entire reset is being enacted, beginning with the ‘covid’ simulation.

So i feel our job, as human beings, is to make sure their simulations do not transfer successfully. This means we operate on the basis of what is not accounted for by AI: what is most human, which is what hardship will always inspire.

To simplify, call it Love.

This thing will fail, if expensively.

____________________

If this actually is implemented, I think it’s going to be a little worse than just running into ‘the real person’ and calling out ‘the twin’. I think the link is going to be that the real-world person is going to have to ‘follow orders’ of what the digital twin has been commanded to do; in a sense that they won’t ever be separate – but the digital twin will command the behaviour of the real world person in real time. If that little patent of Microsoft from in 2020 is anything to go by – it’s about token-earning through completing activities/task listed to a ‘user’ on digital interfaces. Which implies that the avatar will be given tasks, which the real world person will have to fulfill. Which in turn means that the apparition is rather in control of the action in real world situations. That is – it will be the video game which becomes the player, and the actual player is the game character. A total inversion.

_____________

I think you’re exactly right on this. The entire scam aims to subordinate reality to an idol that brandishes its own artificiality, just as you describe here so well. I’m not sure most people are ready to take that nightmare seriously – a nightmare in which a real punch in a real gut by a real person would be a miraculous gift.

_____________

Could not have said it better – to subordinate reality to an idol brandishing its own artificiality. That is the plan – to redefine ‘reality’ at large. I’ve been speaking about this recently and wrote a comment about the fact of disconnection from the divine, or source, or whatever one might call it – and installing gatekeepers. But here we are ‘lower down’ the rungs in that the self-referential claustrophobic loop is limited to corporate interests, and not a contexualisation into the existence. That is to say that there might even be a possibility of apotheosis even within organised religion, but here, the only movement is towards not just profit-making for the establishment, but also engineering the ultimate aims. Which always brings the trajectory back to what Kurzweil and those ideologues have intended – untity with the godhead through a technological singularity.

It’s quite simple, really. The softest point is of earning a living. And if the avatar is earning the living instead of the real person, tasks given to the avatar to be carried out by the real person most definitely will be completed. If the intent of this ‘game’ is control – then hunger is the weapon.

None of this was ever about the privilege of ownership of identity. It has always been about what we will do to survive and make sure our families don’t go hungry.

I see this in action. I got an at home customer service job for a major high end dept store. They want to data collect thru the roof. & my manager didnt quite understand why i wanted my phone seperate from my work computer. We were told not check email when not working so I figured why drag everything onto my phone? Bc they want inside everything. Thefe are internal competitions that ask all sorts of getting to know you metrics. We dont have to play but im wondering if i will last if i dont. My manager even daid she doesnt micromanage our time and i told her she didnt habe to bc the system foes it for her. The training is designed to weed out straglers and they have a constant carrot dangling.

“Controlling Human Behavior With Light” – Optogenetics
Neuroscience – No Surgery – Gene Editing/Therapy May Or May Not Be Required…
Ever wondered if your tv was capable of monitoring and assessing you as a person ?
Could your tv also manipulate you ?
It is for the greater good.
Why are people going nuts and acting “weird” these days?
What does my TV or phone know about me and where is this data being sent and stored ?
Who is using it ?
So many questions.
This is gold for those who want to control the population.
Simple, administered through engineered cold virus to edit the human body.
Virus-19 ?
Light carries and sends information.
And magnetic fields can also be used.
Brain Control From Afar…
Optogenetics: a technique combining light therapy and genetic engineering to control brain cells.
The way to activate the neurons is via human-made ones.
DREADDS allow scientists to manipulate neurons without planting anything in the brain.
Via injection and infection, via adenovirus’s.
They genetically engineer a receptor that can get into a person via viral vector.
Can be activated or silenced via light pulses, in different color wavelengths. Across the light spectrum.
Can target multiple bodily systems. And cause a variety of effects.
There are 52 different adenovirus’s in nature that we know of.
You do need to take the designer drug to make it even more effective. Enter DREADDs.
If you’re thinking “creepy,” you’re not alone. The study suggests that with an injection of a virus carrying the ChRmine gene—either through the eye socket or through veins—it’s potentially possible to control something as integral to a personality as sociability with nothing but light.
Unlike Neuralink and other neural implants, the study suggests it’s possible to control the brain without surgery or implants. All you need is light.

DREADDS For Neuroscientists – Search Results

Scientists Found a New Way to Control the Brain With Light—No Surgery Required
October 13, 2020
The technology uses light of different frequencies to control the brain. It’s a brilliant mind-meld of basic neurobiology and engineering that hijacks the mechanism behind how neurons naturally activate—or are silenced—in the brain.
Thanks to optogenetics, in just ten years we’ve been able to artificially incept memories in mice, decipher brain signals that lead to pain, untangle the neural code for addiction, reverse depression, restore rudimentary sight in blinded mice, and overwrite terrible memories with happy ones. Optogenetics is akin to a universal programming language for the brain.
But it’s got two serious downfalls: it requires gene therapy, and it needs brain surgery to implant optical fibers into the brain.
That has changed…
This week, the original mind behind optogenetics is back with an update that cuts the cord. Dr. Karl Deisseroth’s team at Stanford University, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota, unveiled an upgraded version of optogenetics that controls behavior without the need for surgery. Rather, the system shines light through the skulls of mice, and it penetrates deep into the brain. With light pulses, the team was able to change how likely a mouse was to have seizures, or reprogram its brain so it preferred social company.
Optogenetics hijacks this process.
Using viruses, scientists can add a gene for opsins, a special family of proteins from algae, into living neurons. Opsins are specialized “doors” that open under certain frequencies of light pulses, something mammalian brain cells can’t do. Adding opsins into mouse neurons (or ours) essentially gives them the superpower to respond to light. In classic optogenetics, scientists implant optical fibers near opsin-dotted neurons to deliver the light stimulation. Computer-programmed light pulses can then target these newly light-sensitive neurons in a particular region of the brain and control their activity like puppets on a string.

What Is Optogenetics?
Oct 4, 2016
Optogenetics allows us, for the first time, to manipulate the messages that those neurons send to each other.
https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/10/what-is-optogenetics/

The technique could potentially be used to manipulate memories, emotions and thoughts, raising profound ethical questions.
Scientists have been able to implant false memories into the brain of a mouse using optogenetics. This could have far-reaching consequences for the 350 million people worldwide that suffer from depression, as Susumu Tonegawa, Professor of Biology and Neuroscience at Massachusetts Institute of Technology explained in a talk at Davos 2016.

Optogenetics, Tools and Applications in Neurobiology

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5437765

Why is optogenetics transforming neuroscience?
Optogenetics gives neuroscientists an unprecedented level of control in neurons.

  • Illuminating only certain regions of the brain enables manipulation to be targeted to a specific space (with lasers, this region can be minuscule).
  • Using pulses of light allows the modulation to be targeted to specific times, giving high temporal resolution.
  • Limiting the genetic modification to specific cell types makes it possible to study functions associated with only those cells.

MIND CONTROL FROM A DISTANCE EVEN USING YOUR TV…

“The TV could be monitoring you and knowing whether you’re angry or not just by analyzing the cues, the biological cues from your body!”
Ever wondered if your tv was capable of monitoring and assessing you as a person ?
Could your tv also manipulate you ?
It is for the greater good.
Why are people going nuts and acting “weird” these days?

Light carries and sends information.
And magnetic fields can also be used.

Did you know that “they” have the ability to control human behaviors just by using different colors of light combined with or without gene editing with the insertion of DREDDs….
(Modified adenovirus)
They can even make you not want food or sex. Even control your movements…
And this has been available since 2008 in the public record ?
See Dr. Charles Morgan’s lecture for more on DREDDs for example and what they can do with just DREDDs.


And some replies to this post:

OK, that pretty much explains what DREDDS are.
I knew about spectral influencing from years ago. We did experiments with growth rates in plants and animal behavior using different light.
The scary part right now is that you mobile phone uses blue light and can be remotely adjusted across blue to ultraviolet.
YIKES !


We have known for at least 25 years that the TV was “monitoring” people — since at least the advent of High definition television… look where they are manufactured — why would any invite that into their bedroom!!??


The TV was originally developed by Germany before ww2 as a weapon and guidance system as well as for broadcasting.
The TV is often referred to as programming and is the most common device people have besides cell phones and computers.
Readily available.
All they needed was the delivery systems for gene editing and the desire to enact such a plan. Then 2020 emergency came around.

A simple adenovirus cold is all they need to infect or inject you with. Even inhalation.

• The Nanorouters Are Responsible For Receiving The Electrical Signal, Decoding It, Configuring The Data Packets And The Recipient Of The Information, Providing Mac Identification And A Destination Ip Address. Additionally, This Information Can Be Encrypted To Increase The Security Of The System And Prevent Bio-Hacking.
• A Nano-Interface Is Required To Transmit The Signal Outside The Body, Which Could Have Several Functions, On The One Hand, The Encryption Of The Data Packets And, On The Other Hand, To Increase The Frequency, So That It Can Be Propagated Outside The Body At An Enough Distance.

“Enter –> Yuval Noah Hariri”
On April 14 2020, a mere 13 days after the World Health Organization declared Virus-19 a pandemic, Harari explained that, with the global response to Virus-19, we were seeing “a change in the nature of surveillance. Previously surveillance was mainly above the skin. Now it’s going under the skin. Governments want to know not just where we go or who we meet —above all they want to know what is happening under our skin”
“This was the moment”, he later added during a panel discussion with the President of Microsoft, “when everything became monitored. [It was the moment] that we agreed to be surveilled, all the time”
It was? We did?
Harari told The Late Late Show, early in The Pandemic, on April 16th, 2020:
What’s happening now, it’s really a watershed in the history of surveillance.
First of all, we see mass surveillance systems entering and being adopted in democratic countries, which previously resisted them.
Secondly, we see the nature of surveillance changing from over the skin surveillance to under the skin surveillance.
By “under the skin surveillance” Harari explained to “BBC Hard Talkin” May 2020 he meant not merely medical measurements such as temperature or heart rate. Under the skin surveillance, he stressed, would enable governments and corporations to monitor not just what we do, but what we think and feel while we are doing it, to the extent that they would “know me better than I know myself”
Once you have under the skin surveillance you can know that”, he said, “because emotions and feelings are biological phenomena, just like fever.”
Harari added that he thought it was likely that “people could look back in 100 years and identify the virus epidemic as the moment when a new regime of surveillance took over, especially surveillance under the skin. Which I think is maybe the most important development of the 21st century”
Is Harari some sort of Biblical prophet?
What on Earth was he talking about?
In April and May of 2020 citizens were still “sheltering in place” to “flatten the curve” and spare the hospital system unnecessary burdens.
Or so they thought.
Nevertheless, the “watershed” in surveillance and data collection ushered in under the cover of a Virus-19 emergency, Harari has since stated on numerous occasions, has rendered human beings “hackable animals”.
All of which makes considerations such as a human soul, spirit, and free will redundant and anachronistic in his view.
Governments and corporations for the first time in history have the power to basically hack human beings … Humans are now hackable animals,” he observed.
The whole idea that humans have, you know, this soul or spirit and they have free will …that’s over.

It may seem puzzling to the casual observer why a scholar of Yuval Noah Harari’s rank (top WEF advisor) would offer such bizarre claims about human beings —a category of sentient biological life-forms he appears to still, belong to.

His descriptions remind us of the one who had pitilessly sentenced another to death, but who was also ultimately judged to be a “ghost from another time” condemned to liquidation. This totalitarian warning brings us to the latest existential threat from today’s technocratic order. While integration propaganda has kept populations tightly focused on medical threats and strictly medical answers in response to Virus-19, investigations in the realm of nanotechnology have shed light on the possible meanings behind some of Harari’s more perplexing pronouncements.
The particularly bold assertions that Virus-19 sent surveillance under the skin, such that privacy and free will are “over”, representing “the most important development of the 21st century”, may perhaps be understandable in terms of what has been described as an “Intra-Body & Intra-Corporeal Nano network” inside the human body.

The Bio-Nano Panopticon of Injected Bodies?
A Comprehensive Report With Many Documented Links
Abstract:
A survey and critical analysis of literatures in biotech, nanotech, and materials science can yield important insights on major threats facing humanity in a world divided largely by highly compartmentalized epistemic communities. Interdisciplinary research on the well-documented problems posed to human beings by the injectable mRNA platforms claiming to address virus-19 medical complications reveal surprising, if not deeply troubling, new evidence of apparent fraud and deceit. Analysis presented here bolsters both the reported laboratory studies of blood samples from injected subjects and experimental work exploring the potential reasons for observed phenomena relating to electromagnetic properties exhibited in human bodies. The impetus for this cross-disciplinary study was current reports from a substantial proportion of injected subjects who emitted alphanumeric signals in the frequency range corresponding to Bluetooth communications networks. Discussion of these bizarre phenomena are framed by a wider historical context in nanotechnology as an emergent industry and by recent commentary emanating from noteworthy public figures concerning surveillance under the skin and the disappearance of civil and human rights.

cDNA is a chimeric “m R N A” cocktail that’s being coded into Human cells using artificial genetic sequences in cross-species genomics.
According to the US Supreme Court ruling in 2013, altering Humans with cDNA makes them patent eligible. The court documents show that cDNA is made using modified bacterium and Supreme Court judges ruled it patent eligible. This means that a plant, animal or Human, could be patented and owned if first genetically modified with cDNA.

Design Of Intra-body Nano-Communication Network For Future Nano-Medicine.
Abstract:
Intra-body communication (IBC) is a method that utilizes the human body as a broadcast
biological medium for electromagnetic signals to inter-connect wireless body sensors. Study of
the collaboration between electromagnetic waves and human cells has gained importance in
recent years leading towards developing and establishing new novel concept which is the idea of
nano-communications using nano-networks to form “in vivo communication” that are aimed to
offer wireless communication between interior nano-sensors.

    Abstract
    Intra-body communication networks are designed to interconnect nano- or micro-sized sensors located inside the body for health monitoring and drug delivery. The most promising solutions are made of implanted nanosensors to timely monitor the body for the presence of specific diseases and pronounce a diagnosis without the intervention of a physician.

  2. Nano-Sensor Modelling for Intra-Body Nano-Networks
    Abstract
    In this work, the author has evaluated the propagation of electromagnetic waves inside the human tissue such as blood, skin and fat for single-path and multi-path layers according to nano sensor transmit power calculations. In particular, the propagation characteristics of the Intra-Body Nano-Network communication channel are calculated using a theoretical approach. The analysis in this paper provides an evaluation related to the path loss, bit error rate, signal to noise ratio and the channel capacity. The model is evaluated for each single-path effect and multi-path effect. The effects of human tissue for each blood, skin and fat for single-path effect and multi-path are included in the analysis. The model frequency range is chosen from 0.01 to 1.5 THz frequencies, which are ideal for designing nano sensors antennae and using THz range for communication. This paper will also guide other researchers who are working on the electromagnetic radiation performance of Intra-Body Nano-Network and Nano sensors designed at the THz range.
    Introduction
    Next generation wearable technologies, which is also supported with Internet of Things (IoT) and Nano-technology have to be in miniature size. Therefore, the designers need to work on higher frequencies such as 0.1–10 THz to reduce antenna size [1]. With the help of Nano-technology, nano-communication and THz waves, nano or micro size machines can communicate with each other [2, 3].
    https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11277-021-08171-2

ince nano-technology was put forward in 1959, it has not only gained great attention in body-centric applications, but it has also gained great attention in many other fields. Nano-technology, nano-networks and nano-communication will greatly affect human life and health. Nano-machines which are especially designed for the human body can be placed inside the body or surface-mounted on the body. With the help of these technologies, patient data can be sent to monitoring centers independent of the patient location.

As I warned many years ago (way back in 2017 in my article ‘The Economic End Game Continues’), tensions with eastern nations are being used to diminish the role of the US dollar as the world reserve currency and the petro currency. The conflict is also causing resource shortages and supply chain weakness, not to mention an energy crisis in Europe that is now irreversible with the sabotage of the Nord pipelines.

I also predicted in 2017 that the Federal Reserve would repeat a pattern of raising interest rate into severe economic weakness causing increased economic turmoil. They used a very similar tactic at the onset of the Great Depression, which former federal reserve chairman Ben Bernanke openly admitted was the cause of the long term deflationary collapse.

Comments from Europeans

I’m in Scotland and the proof of how difficult things are getting is becoming more and more evident on a daily basis. I worry for young families. There are a lot of unemployed families scraping…

Hi from Germany! In July we paid the equivalent of $800 for 2 1/2 cubic meters of seasoned and stacked wood. Thankfully we have been able to find a source for about half that price which is still high! It is literally impossible to buy a wood stove (sold out everywhere) and new deliveries won’t be arriving till next year. If you haven’t pre ordered and paid for one now , you’re not likely to get one when they do eventually come back onto the market.

Our personal gas heating bill has gone from (equivalent) $220 to $550 per month and rising. Tons of small businesses AND big industry are shutting down because of energy costs. The food prices are just ridiculous! Chicken breast at my local supermarket is at $17,90 per kilo (about 2.2 lbs). That’s not free range or organic either..just your average factory farmed stuff. Electricity will be going up soon too, probably around 60% increase is what they’re saying. Despite all of this going on (plus much more) most people are still oblivious to what’s happening and think it’s just a blip that will go away. We personally are preparing as best we can but it’s been difficult as our own business has suffered through the big C and because people are cutting back on spending. I just pray everyday that I am shown the steps I need to be taking and when I need to take them.

I live in Southern Ireland (which isn’t part of the UK I bought a wood cook stove last month and I’m a WAITING LIST for a log delivery, wood merchants are closing their books because demand is higher than stock, msm is drip feeding us information on rolling blackouts, perhaps 3 hours a day (worst case scenario were told….

Hello from Slovenia . We are neighbouring country from Austria. We have the same problens here as they have. Prices of wood went up to sky, from 65€/m² to 110-120€/m². Food prices, gas prices, bills for electricity… it all went up.

Hi from Germany!

My mom’s heating bill was preemptively raised to over 400€/month. That is about 3x what it was.

Who has the resources for that?! The letter from the electric company came with info on how to apply for government assistance.

They heat with gas and it’s already very cold in the mountainous region where she lives.

Nope, I’m not ending this comment on a positive note.

I am from the Netherlands. The mainstream media is reporting that food processing plants are going to close for the winter period to save energy costs. But there are also large food processing plants who announced (or soon will) that they will close for good in April/May, or they will not grow certain crops anymore to save energy costs. Also the largest biological food processing plant is going to close in April.

Here in UK yesterday we were warned of likely 3 hour long black outs in winter. We don’t have any prep for that in this country and no officials are making any attempt to help us prepare.

That’s a reversal from recent months, when ranchers faced with dwindling supplies and sharply higher prices for hay moved more animals off the ranch, helping to keep meat supplies relatively plentiful.

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/here-are-all-funds-are-about-lose-billions-ftx

US SENATOR WARREN SAYS WE NEED MORE AGGRESSIVE ENFORCEMENT OF THE CRYPTO INDUSTRY

Why of course her intentions are for a CBDC
“On central bank digital currencies, yesterday’s report from the Federal Reserve is the first step in outlining the benefits and challenges with the United States’ potential issuance of its own CBDC. Unlike private digital assets, a CBDC issued by the Federal Reserve would be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, like the dollar bills in our wallets, and hold the promise of deepening financial inclusion for underserved communities as more economic activity moves online.”
“The Federal Reserve has an important role to play in maintaining the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency, and policymakers and regulators must make sure that neither foreign governments’ digital currencies nor digital assets issued by private entities weaken the U.S. dollar’s stature or harm our economy,”
Congresswoman Waters
After the fall of FTX, Congresswoman Waters has called for a crypto bill.

History – Sam Bankman-Fried has been a major force in Democratic politics, ranking as the party’s second-biggest individual donor in the 2021–2022 election cycle, with donations totaling $39.8 million. That ranks only behind George Soros[ $128 million] but ahead of many other big names, including Michael Bloomberg [$28.3 million)]. Sam Bankman-Fried had promised to spend far more on Democrats. He predicted in May that he’d fund “north of $100 million” and had a “soft ceiling” of $1 billion for the 2024 elections.

FTX spent $74 million on real estate in the Bahamas in 2022 – The Block.

FTX lists zero Bitcoin assets on bankruptcy papers despite $1.4 billion of BTC liabilities – FT

This was screaming PONZI back in 2018 but people still invested.
SBF had Alameda pitch from 2018 offering investors… 15% returns… up to $200 million volume… “high returns, no risk”… “have NO DOWNSIDE”…

May,2022 the Fied’s Crypto Bahamas event brought the world to Nassau for a lavish gathering attended by the supermodel Gisele Bündchen and her then husband, Tom Brady. Sporting his customary cargo shorts, Bankman-Fried shared a stage with Bill Clinton and Tony Blair.

Today is the big day according to clif.

Clif High suspected from his work that something big and ‘emotional’ was supposed to happen on or around the 13th. However, he supplements that with the ‘normies’ (us) may not find out the whole truth for days or weeks after. so now we have FTX and mid-term elections on the table, plus anything else that hasnt come to light yet….


I’m sure there’s much more beneath the surface. Jim Rickards and others have been talking about this event since a week and half ago – no specifics but just that there was going to be a major scandal exposed that would lead to greater distrust in govt and had to do with the election. (They were obviously aware of the specifics.)


Nothing sez controlled demolition like creating a crisis or scandal, then exposing it on cue but not when it was found out. 🍿🍿🍿🍻


My thoughts exactly.


The “collateral damage” – iyho will it be on in the crypto world or in the general markets?


I would say both.

The far-left Washington Post reported on March 3 that Ukraine was dealing in crypto.
The Ukrainian government has gathered more than $42 million in cryptocurrency donations since Saturday, plus digital artwork including a limited edition worth roughly $200,000, according to blockchain analytics firm Elliptic. The challenge is how the country cashes in on these assets to fund its war needs.
This is the biggest scandal in the world right now.
FTX was a money laundering scam.

Russia announces 12 more countries want to join BRICS…

If all are accepted BRICS will have 50% of the world population… and an even larger share of commodities such as oil, gas, metals, etc…

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated on Tuesday that there are at least a dozen countries that want to join the BRICS alliance in opposition to the US-backed world economic order that is crumbling.

“Interest in this global association is very, very high and continues to grow. It’s not just Algeria, Argentina, and Iran. In fact, there are more than a dozen such countries,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday at a press conference in Moscow.

BRICS currently consists of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, but they are looking to expand their power at a time when the U.S. Empire is faltering, Europe is undergoing a massive recession, and the world is in deep turmoil. BRICS is emerging as a more stable solution for countries that do not want to accept decline and ruination as the norm.

schedule today. Palm Beach County: it’s happening, your local tyrant getting ready to be appointed to a position by Governor DeSantis. We’ve been fooled…don’t think the prolonged business closures & lockdowns & mask mandates were solely a local decision…plenty of evidence to point to them being in cahoots. I know that’s a hard pill to swallow.

______________

And some replies to this post:

this area is where all the old poeple live so PBC and south of us had to stay locked down to keep Desantis’ death numbers down, while the rest of the country was told that FLorida was wide open= Freedom


DeSantis the Globalist kissing Evil Dave Kerner the tyrants ass.


Remember Desantis told you at a Trump rally that we needed to vote these local Palm Beach County people out if we are unhappy with their COVID policies, and now he is hiring them?


What happened at the meeting?!


rumors here from several sources, very credible sources, that DeSantis will appoint Kerner to a position under him.


yea that meeting I was at and he made us wait hours to speak while he grilled 2 other county commissioners on their comments in the Palm Beach Post that said Kerner wasn’t including them in his decisions.

Kerner King of masks, king of kicking people out of the chambers if it so much as fell below your nose, king of trying to cut constituents off from public comments, King of WTF notes while ppl speak, KING of “and now we have all the power” which he asked for & DeSantis gave him!


https://affidavitalliance.com/unmask-seminar1636576457137


but looked what happened, they tress-passed ppl.
Don’t you remember the day after DeSantis nullified county orders, the county admin told the Sheriffs to bar the maskless from the chambers and they didn’t allow us in, by verbal order like that?


I remember all …..including my arrest almost a year later January 14, 2021 because DeSantis expanding this unlawful unconstitutional criminal act of Treason against We the people!!!


YUP and his deafening silence after my arrest AND his deafening silence after he ordered counties to provide him lists of all who were arrested or fined due to Covid lockdowns and he didn’t do anything about it.


Kerner says, he vetted PBC COVID compliance team that threatened businesses w/Gov. DeSantis. “We’ve essentially turned our Board of County Commissioners & it’s Government into what we could call a regulatory agency on issues that we haven’t otherwise been tasked w/ in the past”.

Listen to this businesses owner’s experience w/ Kerner’s COVID task force vetted by Gov. DeSantis’ office. He says 8-10 people in military garb would come in his business weekly & take pictures of customers.
“This isn’t COVID task force, this is abuse of power!”


Again I’m just gonna say all of these people are in cahoots together

Also remember he gave mayorca enterprises 11 million dollars of tax payer money (becuz mayorca donated to his campaign)

Was it DeSantis or Kerner that gave the Mayorca enterprises the 11 million?

Here is a post I saw in response to a, thankfully strongly disliked, FB ad promoting ESG crap:

For those of you that think electric vehicles are the answer- this is a true story from a farmer in the Midwest- and I’m reposting it-

A close friend farms over 10,000 acres of corn in the mid-west. The property is spread out over 3 counties. His operation is a “partnership farm” with John Deere. They use the larger farm operations as demonstration projects for promotion and development of new equipment.

He recently received a phone call from his John Deere representative, and they want the farm to go to electric tractors and combines in 2023. He currently has 5 diesel combines that cost $900,000 each that are traded in every 3 years. Also, over 10 really BIG tractors.

JD wants him to go all electric soon.

He said: “Ok, I have some questions. How do I charge these combines when they are 3 counties away from the shop in the middle of a cornfield, in the middle of nowhere?” “How do I run them 24 hours a day for 10 or 12 days straight when the harvest is ready, and the weather is coming in?” “How do I get a 50,000+ lb. combine that takes up the width of an entire road back to the shop 20 miles away when the battery goes dead?”

There was dead silence on the other end of the phone.

When the corn is ready to harvest, it has to have the proper sugar and moisture content. If it is too wet, it has to be put in giant dryers that burn natural or propane gas, and lots of it. Harvest time is critical because if it degrades in sugar content or quality, it can drop the value of his crop by half a million dollars or more. It is analyzed at time of sale. It is standard procedure to run these machines 10 to 12 days straight, 24 hours a day at peak harvest time. When they need fuel, a tanker truck delivers it, and the machines keep going.

John Deere’s only answer is “we’re working on it.” They are being pushed by the lefty Dems in the government to force these electric machines on the American farmer. These people are out of control. They are messing with the production of food crops that feed people and livestock… all in the name of their “green dream.”

Look for the cost of your box of cornflakes to triple in the next 24 months…”

Wake up! Stand up! Speak up!

Let’s return sanity to our nation.

Similar things around Manhattan I noticed a few weeks back. My mind also goes to limiting access of entry.


We are already geofenced on our 17 little islands. They will keep enough of us alive to clean and serve the Goomba smashes. During c0\/ID Bahamians weren’t allowed to travel island to island but elite private jets with tourists never stopped coming


The last two aren’t checkpoints. They are used to block off the entrance to high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane when the HOV lane is being used for traffic going the opposite direction. In the mornings the traffic in the HOV lane goes one direction and in the afternoons the same HOV lane has traffic going the opposite direction.


yes, but they’ll become checkpoints -in the sense of geofencing – soon enough, I think. Just like the steel-cable median barriers that are installed all along Oklahoma’s turnpikes and highways “to prevent head-on collisions.” They are systems of access management. To be sure, it’s good to try to prevent wrong-way traffic in a HOV lane, but we are dealing with long-term planners who have larger goals in mind.


i saw the plans for Dallas years ago when i started seeing the agendas and their numbers. It was only 21 at first. Tbis is ehat all the naftas were about. Originating lines for human herding and geofencing.


This is the same everywhere in the world from EU to Asia, there is absolutely no difference… 😔


Checkpoints for what?


controlling mobility; your social credit score will determine how obedient you are and if you will be granted access to let’s say the business sector maybe, and if you’re a bad non compliant disobeyer of new world odour rules then you’ll be punished and your access to doing business will be denied. Who knows what these demons have up their sleeves next.
Where I am in Costa Rica, the goobermint has already implemented driving days to “cut down on traffic”.
You can drive on certain roads if your license plate is xyz.
Controlling people and their right to mobility and their right to conduct business is very good for the climate.


really? Its already happening in Costa Rica? My social credit score will stink. I believe in truth.


yes it’s been implemented for years already but right now there is no talk of social credit scores.
I’m just saying that it will be in the future.
Right now it’s strictly to do with keeping traffic low and I’m assuming that their reasoning is partly to do with climate bs.
It’s just this is pilot program and trialling for the future.
During the plan dumbic they restricted people from travelling by allowing two days a week that you were permitted to travel and days were assigned to license plates.
If you were caught driving with the wrong plates on the wrong day, you were fined and the transit po literally take your plates so you can’t drive until you pay the fines.
People think they’ve escaped tyranny when they show up in paradise only to discover shit like this.
Oh and there’s so much more

Here is a post from a friend of mine from Tulsa:

A lot of (former) friends said I was a loon for suggesting that Microtels, SELF-Storage facilities, and Pods and Boxes would soon become the standard for “affordable housing.” Already, the Tulsa area boasts several of these “upcycled” box-structures, including the new Meals on Wheels office and distribution center and a shopping district downtown aptly named, “The Boxyard.” I know of at least two Tiny Home developments here (more like refugee camps, in my opinion), and we have seen programs to “pivot” older hotels into housing for Tulsa’s ever-growing homeless population (growing because the Foundations WANT it to grow and are helping to relocate people to Tulsa from other metro areas). What many people dismiss as simply a fad or a novelty is intended to become the norm.

I’ve tied Niantic to Agenda 21 Placemaking stuff plus AR stuff. I’d suspected they were Pokemon related and thought they might be tied to Pokemon Go and were using this stuff to test place mapping or whatever it’s called under the guise of cute stuff for kids while in reality designing a digital prison.

Recently, I saw this post from a friend of mine, which not only confirmed my suspicions but also proved to me that it went even deeper than I’d feared:

Augmented Reality is a stepping stone to the dystopian metaverse in the making. Niantic was a Google spinoff (funded by Google, Pokeman group and Nintendo). The founder of Niantic was also the founder of Keyhole (in early 2000s when he was funded by IQT (Gilman Louis IQT CEO at the time, not a founder of the company), later acquired by Google in 2015ish – Keyhole product eventually became Google Earth and (maybe) Google Maps.

October 4th, 2022
The Only Reason For Garden Registration Is To Pave The Way For Garden CONFISCATION.
According to the USDA, the move is to foster a “more diverse and resilient local food system to empower communities to address issues like nutrition access and climate change.”

USDA Opens People’s Garden Initiative to Gardens Nationwide
Press Release – September 9th, 2022
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is expanding its People’s Garden Initiative to include eligible gardens nationwide. School gardens, community gardens, urban farms, and small-scale agriculture projects in rural, suburban and urban areas can be recognized as a “People’s Garden” if they register on the USDA website and meet criteria including benefitting the community, working collaboratively, incorporating conservation practices and educating the public. Affiliate People’s Garden locations will be indicated on a map on the USDA website, featured in USDA communications, and provided with a People’s Garden sign.

Welcome to USDA’s The People’s Garden
The People’s Garden was named in honor of USDA’s founder, President Abraham Lincoln, who described USDA as “The People’s Department.” The first People’s Garden at USDA headquarters was started by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on February 12, 2009 – Lincoln’s 200th birthday.

You are ….. right. Colorado already has a law that homeowners cannot save rainwater for any purposes from roof runoff. It’s a state resource.

Police in France are now checking fuel tanks before they allow citizens access to petrol stations… if they have too much in their tank, they are turned away. Shortages in France are forcing people to wait in lines for hours to get only a partial refill of fuel.

The Cherokee Nation’s right to a delegate in the House of Representatives is affirmed by three separate treaties signed by the United States government: the 1785 Treaty of Hopewell, the 1835 Treaty of New Echota, and the Treaty of 1866. The 1835 Treaty of New Echota states the following:
“The Cherokee nation … shall be entitled to a delegate in the House of Representatives of the United States whenever Congress shall make provision for the same.”
Article VI, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution declares that all treaties shall be the “Supreme law of the land.”
The time has come for the United States to live up to its treaties and Constitution.
Sign our petition, and your congressional rep will be contacted and told to honor treaty law and seat the Cherokee Nation’s congressional delegate.


And some replies to this post:

Have you gone down the rabbit hole of Sovereign Citizenship and Maritime Admiralty Law? Jordan Maxwell has a bunch of lectures on it. But it’s not just the Indian Tribes that are Sovereign Nations. Supposedly Uniform Commercial Code has the loophole that frees us as Debt slaves from the Social Security System bidding us as collateral for Debts Owed to the Bank Of England.


I’ve just barely gotten into it. I think there’s something to the argument, for sure, but I just can’t get over the impression that it contains its own trickery. If the arguments about “berth” certificates etc contain any truth, then I’d say that the law (1871 Banking Act, was it?) that established all that was unconstitutional.
Interesting note: the UCC doesn’t govern the Tribes. They have their own commercial code.


How is honoring treaties from 1785, 1835, and 1866 Agenda 21?


It’s part of the larger effort to “re-imagine” constitutional govt into e-governance. The Tribes are being used to introduce Digital Economic Zones and CBDC.

Parts of OKC look like Seattle. I have seen vans pull under the bridge to deliver services. They are being not just tolerated but maintained. They are growing in numbers.


I think they are being used to destroy property values, to scare people from walking to and from their destinations, to demoralize residents, and to be a source of organs, blood, plasma, and other biological commodities.


As is Norman

Norman encouraged them especially under Bloomberg’s protege Brea Clark—a globalist mayor.


If you ever get the chance read this book. The author was my mentor on Mexico.
The relationship between criminal organizations, government and industry is eye opening. This includes displacing persons and clearing areas for new development. I’m all for progress and development but not done criminally and immorally.


helps in consolidating similar minds into physical groups…many people will choose to relocate to more conservative areas…makes it easier to reduce collateral in case of need

Itll help inflate the cost of living where those who leave, seek refuge, by increasing real estate gain from a hyper inflated real estate market, only subsidized purchasers can invest


great point! That sounds exactly right to me – and the (formerly) desireable areas that are abandoned can be bought up on the cheap.


we’ve just watched it happen in Eugene…became “sanctuary”…huge influx of “homeless” campers (many had tents I wish I had), camp sites designated, crime increased, homes went on market by folks leaving for TX, ID, FL,, home costs went up at sales location (persons or entities were offering more than sale price), home prices went up at new states because the inflated sales price created inflated buy price, homeless camps disbanded, property value sank, millions of tax $$$ in cleanup of disbanded homeless camps due to hazardous waste left behind…a real grifter shit show.


Compared to Tulsa, OKC sucks ass. It’s an outrage that they cater literally as you say, to a mile of tent dwellers all along 8th street I think it is all the way over to Penn. They are encouraging it.


Used like any weapon of war, as vulnerable populations generally are & manufactured as profitably.
Not as if the total commodification of human beings new; the practice will only be perfected going forward & become more ‘inclusive’.


Same thing going on in Minneapolis.
It’s part of their plan.


We’ve had an explosion of homelessness and drug addiction in Spokane WA. Last night I called 911 for a person lying face down on the sidewalk who appeared to be dying of a drug overdose.


I live in an area that’s at the edge of Tulsa’s traditional midtown, but not at all suburban. It’s characterized by class A office space, medical campuses, the “good” neighborhood schools, a PGA-tier golf course – you get the idea. In the past year, I’ve seen more homeless and prostitutes wandering about our neighborhood than I used see in downtown. I called the police just last week because a barefooted woman – obviously in major distress – had just been in my side yard and was running from house to house down the street. Now, I’m not trying to objectify or demonize these pitiful people – who I think have arrived at their sad states through years of being used, abused, and terrorized – but I don’t want to have an unexpected encounter with somebody (esp w my children in tow) who is in that condition. My 9yo daughter, who has a very pure spirit and is deeply pained by human suffering, is afraid of being stopped at traffic signals downtown because there are so many deranged vagrants loitering about. This has all happened in the past three years.


Vandalism has spiked along 11th Street.


Oh really? I haven’t been along 11th lately, but I’d believe it! The cartels are moving in too – I think a lot of the graffiti around town are gang signals of various sorts – not just ornery teenagers, you know.

I’m sure you saw this…

I heard an ad for a tiny home thing made from shipping containers. What was odd was that I heard it on a conservative/alternative outlet called Today’s News Talk. It was during a Shannon Joy Show podcast, though I doubt Shannon had control of the ad placement (she’s on our side and has called out the jab mandates, Agenda 21, etc). It does mean, however, that the org she’s working with is somewhat compromised if they’re allowing ads like that on there. The thing is mainly geared at the US, the UK, and Australia, so the company could be based in any one of them.

__________

Down here in Gulfport/Biloxi there’s an influx of homeless too. Most hang out in the casino parking lots and the piers at the bitch. Most seem to either be meth addicts or alcoholics from smaller towns north of here and each has their tale of woe. A lot of them I imagine have had their run ins with the law and have warrants which keeps them from seeking employment. They know they’d fail the drug test and the background check.

____________

The homeless situation will continue to grow as this [controlling] economy develops – Sri Lanka was the test tube baby , now since the WEF puppet is president the only way Sri Lankans can purchase anything they have to have a QR Code. The U.S. has only 25 days of diesel supply. We will hit rock bottom and the homeless situation will grow tremendously .. Housing crisis developing.

‘New Jersey Sues Exxon Mobil, Others for Allegedly Misleading Public About Climate Change

New Jersey on Tuesday sued major oil and gas companies for allegedly misleading the public about the impact of their fossil fuel products on global warming, joining other states that have brought similar claims.

New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin and the state’s Division of Consumer Affairs and the Department of Environmental Protection filed the suit on behalf of New Jersey residents against Exxon Mobil (XOM) , Chevron (CVX) , Shell Oil (SHEL), BP (BP), ConocoPhillips (COP) and a petroleum trade association, American Petroleum Institute.

“Based on their own research, these companies understood decades ago that their products were causing climate change and would have devastating environmental impacts down the road,” Platkin said in a statement. “These companies put their profits ahead of our safety.”

The suit, which alleges that the companies deceived the public about the existence of climate change, is seeking an injunction ordering the energy companies to stop misleading consumers about the “destructive environmental impacts of fossil fuels,” according to the office of the attorney general.

It also seeks civil monetary penalties and damages. Several states and cities have filed similar lawsuits against oil and gas companies, including Delaware and Charleston, South Carolina.

“They went to great lengths to hide the truth and mislead the people of New Jersey, and the world,” said Platkin. “It’s long overdue that the facts be aired in a New Jersey court, and the perpetrators of the disinformation campaign pay for the harms they’ve caused.” ‘

***

<<< Should be interesting to see how the plaintiffs are going to prove the case, that “climate change”/”global warming” exists, that these are “devastating” in their impact on our “environment,” that the devastating impact is significant enough/sufficient to warrant such suit and more importantly, that it is these companies and their actions that are responsible, above all others, for much of it. Hopefully the respondent companies will put up a fight, assuming this is not an attempt to take us all further down this rabbit hole of “climate change”/”global warming” and all that it entails. >>>

And some replies to this post:

This is just a ploy to further raise the cost of all oil based products and further impoverish and restrict the working class.


If competently defended this could turn out to be the worst decision to litigate since Oscar Wilde sued the Marquis of Queensbury for calling him a homosexual. However, given that all the oil companies are in on the scam – with the Rockerfellers amongst its key progenitors- I don’t hold out much hope.


Yes, see my quote from Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. She knew what they were up to in the 60’s.

1000s Of Sydney Homes Plunged Into Darkness As Aussie ‘Price Cap’ Policy Sparks Energy Shortage

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/1000s-sydney-homes-plunged-darkness-aussie-price-cap-policy-sparks-energy-shortage


Here is a post that was shared by a friend of mine from Australia:

I thought I would provide some clarification to my post the other week about sharing game meat.

These are the changes in the bill which will make it illegal to share outside your home.

38(1)(a) Meat Industry Act. The bill removes the wording “Other than Game”, when this is removed it essentially bans you consuming meat from a game animal unless it is processed by a meat processing facility. This was clarified by Ms Tierney in the upper house who said that you could use it for personal use for yourself and your household, but you CANNOT gift the meat outside to those who do not live in your home.

The current bill to be changed:

38 Slaughter at unlicensed premises

S. 38(1) amended by No. 40/2019 s. 61(1).

(1) A person must not—

(a) slaughter for human consumption a consumable animal other than game; or

(b) dress the carcass of a consumable animal for human consumption; or

(c) process game or poultry—

at a place or vehicle that is not a meat processing facility licensed for that purpose.

Penalty: First offence 100 penalty units.

Subsequent offence 500 penalty units or 24 months imprisonment or both.

(Note: From 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022, the value of the penalty unit is $181.74)

(2) This section does not apply to the slaughter of game.

S. 38(3) inserted by No. 40/2019 s. 61(2).

(3) A person does not commit an offence under subsection (1)(c) if the game is processed at a meat processing facility that solely processes game that is not intended for sale.

In the new Bill

In section 38(1)(a) of the Meat Industry Act 1993 to omit “other than game”.

You will in section (2) it refers to slaughter of Game ONLY. Not processing or dressing.

I’ve attached an image of the relevant section of the Meat Industry Act 1993 so it makes sense to people. Amendments from the recent Ag bill are noted.e noted.

This is how they create SMART FARMING and WILDERNESS areas. STEER CLEAR!!

And the post she quoted:

By 2040, 18.4 million acres of American farmland and ranchland will be paved over, fragmented, or compromised without smart growth and good land-use planning.
The nation has a choice: allow unchecked sprawl to erode this critical resource, or safeguard it with policies that protect farmland and smarter land-use planning that leads to efficient growth.
Farms Under Threat is AFT’s multi-year effort to advance cutting-edge solutions for farmland protection. We use high-resolution spatial analysis tools to identify exactly where agricultural land has been converted to urban and low-density residential land uses—and to anticipate future threats. We have also done a deep analysis of every state’s policies for protecting farmland and ranchland, promoting agricultural viability, and helping transfer land to the next generation of farmers and ranchers.

Interesting how coordinated all the Western nations are, as if they are all working from the same playbook. Fuel poverty, food insecurity, rolling blackouts will cause fear, a population in fear is far easier to control & manipulate. I bet there are nudge units behind this.

Here is a post I found from the Syrian Times. It appears that Bashar al-Assad is in on the larger globalist agenda, much like Putin. That means he’s as much to blame for the suffering of his own people due to the proxy wars as Volodymyr Zelenskyy is for his (Also, this isn’t the only instance of Syria/NWO cooperation that has helped to change my opinion of Bashar al-Assad being a victim of the NWO.

Here is a post from a friend of mine from Florida:

Well they’re so open with it I guess I should have known. This is gentrification. Met a guy at the dog bar who studies and writes and does so much research on gentrification and segregation. It’s called @segregationbydesign on Instagram. He is currently studying Palm beach county. He said this place is in the middle of being gentrified right now, so the fact I’m losing my place so a bunch of freaking yuppies can move in, doesn’t surprise him.
“Take a good mental snapshot of Boynton Beach because you won’t recognize the city in 10 years.
That’s the opinion of political leaders and administrators who are overseeing a transformation designed to reshape the city’s future.
If there is a theme to Boynton’s plans, it might be: Out with the old stuff and in with the new shiny projects.”
Getting pushed out are old buildings along Federal Highway and Boynton Beach Boulevard as well as the city’s reputation as a haven primarily for retirees and snowbirds. Coming in will be Town Square, which will give Boynton its first downtown in decades; and construction of hundreds of apartments and condos that are attracting young professionals looking to start a family and having the effect of changing the city’s demographics.
Therefore, if you’re rich and white and you have a tech job- by all means. But if you’re struggling or poor or black, then who knows.
“Boynton is growing rapidly,” said City Manager Lori LaVerriere, citing figures showing Boynton’s population is expected to grow by 7 percent over the next five years. “We’re coastal, affordable and a fun place to live. From a quality-of-life perspective, people are becoming very attracted to Boynton Beach.”
Any talk of what Boynton looks like in 2030 begins with Town Square, the massive 16-acre project that will include a new city hall, library, fire station, amphitheater, several parks, a hotel and thousands of square feet of commercial and residential space.
“Town Square is going to give Boynton Beach a downtown for the first time since the 1950s when Henry Flagler still had his train station on Ocean Avenue,” Mayor Steven Grant said. “The way I see it, Town Square is the start of the next century for our city.”
Change is also coming to the Boynton Beach Mall, a victim of the retail world’s move away from big-box stores. The site developer, Washington Prime, is expected to present a master plan that includes hundreds of apartments and office space to go with retail stores and restaurants that are accessible from the outside.
Grant said he would like the “new mall” to be an ““entertainment complex versus just a shopping and living complex” that could include a small-capacity arena, while Commissioner Justin Katz, whose district contains the 116-acre mall site, said he prefers a retail and dining combination with a “Delray Marketplace-vibe.”
I hate the Delray market place YUPPIE-ville vibe.
There are other apartment complexes that are going up or have been opened since the start of 2018, including the six-story 500 Ocean, at Federal Highway and Ocean Avenue, which will ultimately have nearly 350 residences.
“There are consequence to growth,” Katz said. “You can’t stop growth but you can take lessons that we’ve learned from cities that have already developed around us and make sure that whatever pitfalls they have now as a result of their growth, we pay attention to them and have plans to mitigate those things so we don’t repeat those same mistakes.”
Yeah, I’m sure they care SO much about misplacing poor residents so they can bring in wealthy people. Ight.

And some replies to this post:

I grew up on the Delray border and watched it happen in real time. The gentrification over the last 20 years made that place unrecognizable from when I grew up. It was a sleepy little beach town with not a lot of crime. Fancy stores, townhouses, and everyone thought it was so great while people got pushed out crime increased and widened the divide between haves and have nots


This is a real shame as Boynton used to be an affordable, fun place to live. Now it will be like a rip off of Delray, which has been steadily going downhill with its marketplace and the like garbage retail and dining options. It’s almost as if they’re intentionally ruining everything, making it both less affordable and lower quality.
Justin Katz is also the Palm Beach CTA president so I’m well aware of him and his covid antics as well. Nothing good comes of this with people like him involved

He sits right there next to us Liberty minded parents, laughing at us as we spoke to the board about school closures, masks, etc. He is not “for the people”


Berkeley is turning into a mini-Manhattan downtown, with hi rises popping up elsewhere, and a mile from me is a growing bio-tech area heavily involved with implementing 4IR, connected as well with the Cal campus, which looks like a bio-tech lab. Every year the change is more drastic.


I see changes like this happening in Jupiter. People want to keep this area “small” and “coastal” but they also beg for shiny projects. The new loggerhead marine center feels like a spaceship. The small town feel is gone and that’s just one example.


UNINVOLVED men and women.
We were warned years ago about the words sustainable and smart.

State takeover of private land accelerates – Statement by Groundswell NZ

Anyone that owns, leases, or manages property or land in New Zealand, both urban and rural, should be very concerned about the latest developments on the West Coast. That is the message from Groundswell NZ, after over 1500 West Coast property owners received letters in the mail, out of the blue, stating that their properties had been zoned for takeover by state control and that restrictions would take immediate legal effect. There was no consultation with affected property owners and no compensation for loss of use or drop in property value. Property owners have been left in a state of shock and angry at the lack of respect and fair process.

This takeover of private land came about after the four West Coast councils released a combined district plan last week, called Te Tai o Poutini. The zonings include sites of significance to Maori, historic areas, outstanding natural landscapes, and significant natural areas (SNAs). Both urban and rural residents are impacted.

In taking this draconian action, the councils have now turned anything that has cultural, historic, or natural value into a liability. Would you want any of these features on your property if it would make you vulnerable to losing the use of your land and the resulting drop in the value of your property?

This state takeover of private land is accelerating throughout New Zealand, as local councils are being forced by Government directive to enforce unworkable regulations. The raft of ill-conceived regulations coming out of Wellington is causing considerable stress and anxiety for the thousands of people caught up by the legislation. This is the main reason Groundswell NZ started campaigning.

Groundswell NZ are calling for the West Coast councils to immediately withdraw the Te Tai o Poutini plan and to support their communities in lobbying the Government for workable legislation that focuses on achieving positive environmental outcomes, while working with and respecting the rights of people and communities.

Here is a post from my friend from Australia:

Just wondering what you think because the only supermarkets within 45minutes of me have discontinued most of their organic lines, and now the glass bottled spring water is also gone.
It’s an awesome place to shop for hundreds of synthetic cocktails (solid, liquid, and everything in between) comprised of high fructose corn starch, glucose syrup, chemical compounds coded with numbers for concealment and brevity, fake meat, fake alcohol, fake eggs, fake cheese, fake butter, fake ice cream, plant based concoctions packaged in plastic that’s more biodegradable than what’s inside, and an endless supply of biofuel waste converted into indigestible caloric soy mass.
On the contrary, the fresh produce section is abysmal in variety and quantity.
Nothing tastes good anymore. All the joys of life have been obliterated over the decades. I’m starving for the life we could’ve had, and could be having.


And some replies to this post:

I’m seeing it and tasting the horrible excuse for produce. Even the organic produce is terrible.

I got a bag of organic nectarines and they were mush inside and just got a bag of peaches yesterday and am returning them today. There’s been a chemical aroma and taste to a lot of veggies. Cucumber and celery are two that have gone dry in texture too.


I call it “Corporate Organic” .. there has been so much loosening of requirements to meet the qualification of “Organic” , that corrupt federal agencies issuing and granting the “Certified Organic” label , is almost MEANINGLESS

.. I ‘m thinking the ONLY way now to get the equivalent of organic or beyond organic food , is to grow it yourself , or know a grower you TRUST


I do frequent our local organic store but these purchases were at Harris Teeter’s and another chain grocery store. I have been able to find an organic stand at the farmers market but it’s a small selection. I tried to save a few dollars but I’m going to have to spend the extra at our local store. I’m trying so hard to grow hydroponics but not having much luck. I think they got to the seeds too.


I shop at a local Harris Teeter and in the past their organic selections – especially produce – have been phenomenal , but of late ? .. NOT SO MUCH


Yes, I’m noticing the same here in Canada. Everything organic is tasting lackluster, that which I can get. Organic celery and cucumbers have always been a favorite mainstay…now, meh! These are from the organic section of a large corporation though..will see how to source locally


I never realized how bad Australian supermarket food is until i discovered Japan – after my annual holiday to Japan for a month i would return home to Oz and upon the next visit to Coles or Woolworths or IGA i would literally do a complete run of all aisles and find NOTHING appealing – trolley would be empty – i then would tell myself; “Ok I’m not in Japan anymore I’ll have to drop my standards if I want any affordable food,” and then do another round to put something in the trolley. That was after just a month in Japan and acclimatizing to better food grades. Now after almost 10 years in Japan if i went back to Oz i don’t think i could adapt back.


I never realised just how much PLASTIC PACKAGING there is in food now. I buy organic in bulk, and only shop once a month with the occasional fresh produce run, and honestly the plastic. THE PLASTIC in food packaging is hard to comprehend.
I bought some organic soup and looked at the pouches – throw in the bin as land fill but they ship better – eg they can put more in a box than canned. It is a market where the circular economy is about the money in the pockets going from on corporation to the other. That’s the true circular economy here.


Same in the U.K. my local supermarket that has the best (and most expensive) selection of healthier foods is a Waitrose and they had a catastrophic warehouse fire recently that affects all the Waitrose’s in the country 🤔


It looks like shopping baskets are now also taking a turn for the worst.

______________

FFS! As if the supermarkets aren’t already a science !
“can’t identify you (clause) ‘personally’.” Meaning it identifies you without receiving all your details. That could mean everything but your name. It means it’s locked out of some parts of your digital identity. Disgusting They want to get into people’s minds by getting into their shoes. Our devices, appliances, cars and the cameras and microphones everywhere aren’t already enough!!!


I could not agree more it’s absolutely vile!. scanners that film you at checkout, documenting every purchase, now baskets, if they win the cashless war .. it won’t be long before all systems connect … the vice is tightening … meanwhile the normies swing their baskets down the isle with glee!


I remember when loyalty cards that gave you points were first introduced. Many people for reasons of personal privacy did not want them in order to keep their purchasing choices private. Now look where we are.


I’ve been angry, sad, sicken, all the emotions about shopping in the last year especially. Nothing I want can be bought locally anymore They want you to have to order everything so it’s traceable to you. My favorite farmer closed his farm this year The weather has been horrendous Noone’s gardens are thriving. The grocery stores, ugh! Not dependable to find anything in there anymore Occasionally still get what we want but can’t count on it. And I completely agree, the flavor of produce has been terribly altered.


Sri Lanka wanted to go 100% organic and ban agrochemicals, but they weren’t allowed to. A bit like Gaddafi wanted to ditch the dollar…and wasn’t allowed to.

As an aside (or maybe not), Sri Lanka has been earmarked by WEF to be the centre of the ‘Reset’ for Asia. I guess it had to be destroyed in order to build back better.


Has anyone looked at the price of bulk herbs lately? Small companies being bought out and consolidated into the Corporations. It’s all a part of Codex Alimentarius. The incremental end to our availability to herbs and alternative/natural medications/supplements.: Started in 1962 by UN, Imposed by WTO Sanctions
Codex Alimentarius was created in 1962 as a trade Commission by the UN to control the international trade of food. Its initial intentions may have been altruistic but it has been taken over by corporate interests, most notably the pharmaceutical, pesticide, biotechnology and chemical industries.
Codex Alimentarius is backed up by the crippling trade sanctions of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Any non Codex-compliant nation would face huge economic punishment since they would automatically lose in any food-trade dispute with a Codex compliant country. http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/aboutcodex/summary.shtml


the food and grocery stores here in the us, especially on the east coast, is the worst. my saving grace is going to a local farmers market and buying the best organic produce at a very resonable price from an Amish farmer. Stock up on organic seeds for sprouting to get your nutrition. Stock up up on heirloom seeds and grow your own, there are lots of seeds in heirloom plants and you can keep plantinig them, unlike the shite gmo foods.

They want to do the same in Germany. They completely ignore the fact that those people who have private wells on their properties have already incurred enormous costs associated with their construction at the beginning. And this is how people are robbed frequently.

This is a concern in Maryland too. I have a well, and I am charged for Takeaway water services. Acceptable. But…..I am also taxed for whatever amount of rainfall falls on my property over the year. Truth

This is already happening in Catalunya, Spain. A friend of mine has a well on his land. They came along and put a meter on it….then made him build a permanent cover over the well. He is billed for his own water.

I threatened in writing to sue Excel electric utility company if the stepped on my property. Same thing in another state I’m in. Nothing happened. Yet. This was in 2012 in CA akd again in 2022 in CO. If you forbid them on your property the installers usually back off. I’m wondering if enough people do this will it stop this Plan ???

_______________

Here in Spain..from what I can see…..people accede to authority. They are conditioned to believe that having water on your property is a luxury/privilege and conditioned to believe that water is scarce. I don’t believe any of this is true…..but my friend does, so he did as he was told.

I’ve listened to Deborah Tabares from stopthecrime.net over the years and learned the truth.

In California, you don’t have mineral rights to your land (property rights established during the Gold Rush). Due to mismanagement of water resources and political shenanigans, California is drying up her aquifer. This was all preventable. California has an abundance of water which they allow to flow out to sea every year. Planned scarcity.

_______________

If the gov wants to charge them for the water pumped by the well, they should reimburse for replacement costs for a new well first. The well is part of the surface property improvements, and the rights of water pumped from the depth at the time of this feudal move, is grandfathered. It’s not a mineral rights issue. This is part of Agenda 21.

________________

I agree. I think this is legally actionable. Look at nestle. They have “ grandfather rights and pay Hundreds of dollars to pump MILLIONS of gallons of spring water. It’s got to be actionable. I believe a recent court case ruled in their favor sadly. But good news in terms of standing legally.

Here is a post from another friend of mine:

The “GREAT RESET” scam is really all about bringing in a one-world Carbon-Credit economic system, brought to you by the criminal cabal at the UN and WEF!
And in case you wondered why Bill Gates and his criminal buddies are buying up so much land, well it’s worth a fortune in carbon credits!
Now for today’s carbon credit news…

August 13, 2022
Time To Combine Forces?
Lots of news this week: Two powerful markets (potentially) join forces, India keeps its credits in-house, and half a million forest credits auction.
But first, let’s dig into how smaller landowners can get in on the carbon game.
Free Money In The Woods?
Roughly 39% of America’s forests are in the hands of small private landowners with between 30-2000 acres.
Those landowners are now starting to realize the value of the carbon locked up in their trees.
Thanks to the American Forest Foundation, small landowners can enroll their trees in the Family Forest Carbon Program. The program essentially groups offsets from smaller parcels into a sort of carbon credit co-op, which then allows them to be sold on to corporations.
The program provides environmental benefits as well as a source of income for small landholders.
ICE Auction
More proof that forest landowners are winning more share of the carbon market? Planned carbon credit auctions.
The leading global provider of data, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) plans to auction 500,000 reforestation carbon credits for GreenTrees.
GreenTrees’ program enables landowners to receive carbon credits in the earlier years. As the planet continues to get warmer, more firms will invest in emissions reductions and removals.
That could mean trading carbon credits generated from protecting forests will also grow.
India Bans Carbon Credits Exports
Last week, India earned the spotlight with its multiple climate pledges. But that seems not enough for the South Asian nation which made another loud noise.
They began banning carbon credit exports until India meets its climate goals.
In the aftermath of the decision, the shares of India-based EKI Energy were down over 17%.
EKI is the developing world’s largest carbon credit producer, with a focus on renewables and energy efficiency.
Joining Forces: Australia Seeks A New Path For Carbon Credits And Offsets
With a new government comes new plans, and Australia’s new Labour government is full of them.
One of the most noteworthy is the goal of reducing CO2 emissions by over 40% from 2005 levels by 2030.
One way of achieving those goals is to integrate existing voluntary reductions (offsets) and regulatory limits (credits) into a single market.
This National Carbon Market would streamline the entire process and integrate federal and local governments and individual efforts at a deeper level.


And some replies to this post:

This isn’t that new. The former government for the province of Ontario legislated a cap and trade deal with California 2013-2018.
There was transport scam that took advantage of this for a few years till caught. It would send empty railcars stateside and the same railcars would return, claiming carbon green credits both ways. The costs of the railcars was minimal in comparison.
An article on money from nothing (credits).

https://financialpost.com/opinion/christine-van-geyn-ontarians-will-be-forced-to-pay-for-imaginary-credits-just-so-the-government-can-feel-good


Sounds similar to tax credits given to land-owners for not farming their land. btw recently my city school board ex-president purchased and moved to CT, to an 8 acre parcel of largely forested land. Hmmm… wonder what he knew. He was one of the worst in terms of mandates, etc.

I’m so screwed. I cannot afford $3500 a month INCREASE as opposed to $650. That’s such an increase I can’t even begin to understand.. and our buildings in a lawsuit. I’m so fked. How dehumanizing these rich fks and banks can just kick you out of your home and say SORRY you can’t live here cause you’re not rich enough. Well F y’all. SCREW the rich. I’m OVER everything. They’re locking us in here. And taking our homes right from under us. I am so beyond sick of you NEW YORK investors. I’m gonna have to end up doing something illegal or stupid AGAIN just to fucking LIVE.
What was I thinking? ‘yeah I can live here and afford this” NOT. Fuck everything

I can honestly say I feel you….
I’ve got an 8yr old daughter and a dog and have had to live with friends and their family for going on two years now bc of this bullshit (plus my ex). They are wanting their home back to themselves (completely understandable) but I’m fucked bc I can’t afford anything else and due to the weird parenting plan it’s hard to find employment that pays enough and works with my schedule…..TN isn’t any better…..Shit is getting real, really fast….I’m with you on your current thinking too but can’t get too crazy bc of my daughter. I pray someone will help you or something will give, you don’t deserve this bullshit!🙏💞


I understand this completely. Last august a place I rented in Lake Worth for years tried increasing the rent from 1500 to 2500 in a year which was crazy. I found a nice cottage off 46th and Broadway which I’m 1 block from Broadway which is crazy and 1 block from the inter coastal which is peaceful for 1300. Now the scary thing is a new managment company bought the property a couple weeks ago and I need to find out what the next year lease is going to look like because I have a feeling which is happening to all of us down here a spike in rental prices going onto the 2nd year now. I feel for you but look around and you might find something that might not be ideal location but everything you need like in my case.


I bet it will be ridiculous. It’s such a shame. These investors are killing us. So are the banks. And thank you. Good luck to you as well 🙁

🇦🇺AUSTRALIANS ON WELFARE, HEADS UP. YOU’RE FIRST TO TEST THE NEARLY FULLY AUTOMATED SOCIAL CREDIT SYSTEM THAT FINANCIALLY REWARDS AND PUNISHES YOUR BEHAVIOR VIA AN APP
(below copied from friend N.K)
As predicted, social credits and debits are rolling out. This post from Centrelink Info group:
Changes for Jobseekers
There is an overhaul of job search services that takes effect from the start of July.
Jobseekers will all transition to “Workforce Australia” instead of “jobactive”
Many jobactive providers have lost their contract to provide job seeking services and will cease at the end of June.
Some providers have been successful with a new contract and will be expanding their service under the new system.
Jobseekers will be assigned to either

  • Workforce Australia Online (self managing, reporting online) or
  • Workforce Australia Services (in person support via a service provider)
    Jobseekers will need to complete tasks / activities and log them to gain points. Meet your points target to receive your income support payment.
    The initial target will be 100 points per month for most people. Your points target can be modified/reduced based on your circumstances eg Principal carer parent, older age, location. You can bank up some points to roll over into the next month.
    These links provide information about the new system https://jobsearch.gov.au/transition-to-workforce-australia
    You can ask your current JobActive provider about what the changes mean for you.
    You might want to ask
  • will this service continue in July
  • will I be online or with a service provider
  • what will my points target be
    Please read through the factsheets attached before asking any questions in the comments. As this is a new system that hasn’t started yet, admin won’t have all the answers. But we’ll do our best to help.

And some replies to this post:

They have been doing this for awhile now. It’s nothing new. If you don’t comply or search for the amount of jobs you are designated your payments get cut off.


the name changes mean new underwriting and policies. Also, the consolidation of the providers into fewer hands means more centralisation


we have had this in sweden for years now, of course. a couple of years back I had 20% unemployment and before I realized the algorithms part I got a warning: the algorithm saw 75 lector posts, mostly in chemistry or math and full time, but I needed eng, and 20% of which there was none–still, the human could not remove the warning. After that I played the system and even created awareness about it, applying for all kinds of random jobs to fit the 8 a month quote (for 20%!) and then explaining to the humans who contacted me that it was mandatory for me to apply, that I’d be penalized if I didn’t and sorry for the inconvenience. No understanding from working people on this, as most think that control of the lazy unemployed is essential


👍 Here in Australia, our job searches have to be 20 a month if we are partially employed, even if a single parent of a child over 8 or so.


Login with Digital Identity? Gees they’re really steamrolling the WEF’s agenda


it’s not really the WEF agenda, because they came in later. This is the UN agenda. Many people still trust the UN and sustainable development, so WEF is taking the brunt of the criticism in order to deflect the criticism that these terrible things we are seeing is really the implementation of sustainable development/green economy. We see this in Norway, which has close ties to WEF and executes the great reset (sustainable development/green economy/ 4IR) with great zeal zeal. Yet, if you google the great reset in Norwegian nothing comes up from main stream media. And the politician Never talks about it directly ( except the former prime minister talked about BBB a couple of times, as far as I know).


This demerit system has been around for the last couple of years


And yet people still aren’t talking about it. Similarly, the Strong/ Resilient / Smart Cities were announced years ago and most people haven’t even heard the terms. The same goes for the Myki or whatever it’s called public transport card that replaced tickets that could be bought with cash. Which brings to mind the cashless tollways, the narrowed streets, the cameras in the CBD that were up WAY BEFORE Co1984…

Here is a post from a friend of mine from Australia:

dropped a comment about his experience as a small business owner in a thread. I ‘badgered’ him to do a write up. It’s worth your time to read, it really is.
“Are you planning to ever escape corporate enslavement by starting your own small business?
Here is a very small taste of what looms under a full blown technocratic extortion racket – but it may be enough to open some people’s eyes to what some of us have been saying for a decade about the threat of Big Tech / Technocracy.
We run a very small private business (self employed basically) in the travel accommodation sector (along with transport, one of, if not THE most damaged by the Convid-1984 Big Corporate coup.) But even before the Convid-1984 black-op, there were disturbing hints of technocratic standover and overreach in these industries, arising out of Big Tech’s newfound position (imposition, by sheer mega financial clout) as middleman-gatekeepers of the market – likely not a complete coincidence that travel and transport (specifically the taxi industry) sectors were the first ones targeted by consumer booking apps, sales-pitched as “convenient”, about a decade earlier. There are anecdotal examples of taxi drivers financially ruined by the sudden arrival of smartphone bookings apps (not called Ober, Myft, etc) as their extremely expensive (6-figure) taxi licenses were rendered severely devalued or worthless almost overnight (Silicon Valley proudly uses the euphemism “disruptive innovation” to describe their violently rapid upending of established industry norms.) There may not yet be Big Tech apps monopolizing market access (gatekeeping) in every industry, and thereby “disruptively innovating” it – but rest assured there will be. I can speak more to the hotelier industry – i was told by one of our guests that he used to be in the business himself but it was ruined by the online bookings aps – became twice as much work for half the income so he folded it – and had to go work coding for a digital data company. [Which begs the question – where does “disruptive innovation” end? What happens when everyone is coding for tech apps disrupting real economic activity?] I’ve heard through the grapevine that many hotels collapsed under the weight of penalty free canceled bookings forced on them by one particular online booking giant (not called Fooking). We’ve personally not been that badly impacted but we have experienced a lot of time wasted and excessive revenue decreases due to these online booking apps.
And now, today the following. Not Fooking app has just added some sections to our business listing profile to complete. Firstly, they brazenly have a new interactive slider feature offering the “opportunity” (Orwellian corporate-speak for coercion) to pay them a higher commission to “maintain your visibilty” in customer searches. (I’d expect this to be illegal antitrust activity – abuse of market monopoly – but part of Big Tech’s business strategy is hiring armies of mercenary lawyers to contest local challenges in local jurisdictions – and we all know how the law works – the side with the infinitely deep pockets full of cash almost always wins.) As bad as this is though, the second is worse – and where it really starts to dawn what’s going on. They straight up asked; “Have you purchased certified carbon offsets?” Of course these would be total bullshit investment bank synthetic derivatives – a straight up standover payment to the banks which is what it’s ALL been about all along!!! [And no it doesn’t even matter if you believe the carbon narrative – it wouldn’t matter if they were coercing “homeless orphan offsets” – the point is they are coercing purchase of financial derivatives. It’s TOTAL BULLSHIT!!! The coercion comes in their strongly hinting that not answering “Yes” will get our listing demoted in their search result feed to prospective customers (and lying about it will get us delisted completely!. It’s STRAIGHT UP EXTORTION AND RACKETEERING!! What’s next? – “Upload proof of purchase of a $100,000 electric vehicle [from a company probably owned by a hedge fund] to maintain your high visibilty!”?!!!
Oh and finally, the duplicitous mofos have put “cashless payment ap”in the HEALTH AND SAFTEY section! Yeah that’s what it’s about eh?! Safety! Hah! Riiiight! Co-incidently cashless payment apps offer small businesses yet further opportunity to pay commissions to intermediate fintech app gatekeepers (probably owned by Hedge Funds), and even better – to have your payment account terminated for any reason they like (such as speaking against certain political candidates in the pockets of hedge funds and banksters. Capisce?)
This is the new environment for small business – in effect you will have to do everything their way – which means you don’t really run your own business – you’re just a contractor to them and their way. In the analogue era, a quarter page ad in Yellow Pages was all you needed – a one off fixed cost annually and you could run the show your own way – now you can expect to pay these extortion apps 25%-50% of your net income (depending on your margins) – heck with the race to the bottom that their “convenient” PAY-US-MORE slider widget enables we could all end up paying them 99% of net income to move from page 7 to page 6 of the search results AND comply with their bullshit self serving compliance rules – or be delisted). This be some of that 4IR “convenience and prosperity for all” bullshit their PR agencies waxed lyrical about in the past. Pffff!”

____________________

for me here in Texas that is currently the case. I am unfortunately hooked to the grid and pay service fees for electricity even though I make more energy than I use (so far). I couldn’t afford the expensive batteries yet to get off the grid. I found an energy company who has a one kwh to one kwh buyback on my power but some will buy it for less than you pay for theirs. Unfortunately you don’t get paid for your excess production in Texas, but some companies allow you to accrue credits (which I will need in the less sunny months). My electric bill was about $3 and my monthly payment on the solar panels is about half what my electric bill used to be. What I pay them won’t go up with the electricity rates, so it’s supposed to be a better and better deal, since my electricity bills would be going up. I can’t wait to get off the grid entirely and grow most of my own food; it feels urgent.

Texas’ “snowmaggedon” and energy crisis was caused by our overdependence on wind power and ERCOT’s failure to winterize the windmills. We are such an energy rich state. It made us all SO angry. Especially since we went off the US grid, knowing we could be energy independent. We were supposed to be better off but their greed and mismanagement made us a laughingstock.

It’s begun: Large bank and its chains in Ireland going cashless

https://www.independent.ie/business/personal-finance/latest-news/revealed-the-full-list-of-aib-branches-to-go-cashless-this-year-find-out-if-your-branch-is-affected-41851581.html
https://hugotalks.com/2022/07/20/⚠-warning-🇮🇪-ireland-banks-going-cashless-hugo-talks/


Here is a post from her:

Major Bank in Ireland Changes Heart: Will not be going cashless (for the time being).

Let’s clear up a few of the misleading statements made by the MSM–whose reason for existence–IS to mislead.

AIB didn’t rescind their cashless plans because of topical “backlash from farmers,” or retailers, or vulnerable people, or grannies protesting about the inability to gift cash to their grandchildren. [Cherry-picked innocuous articulations are the ONLY arguments ever presented by the sοcίαΙ engίneers]

Does the bank care that real people were going to be inconvenienced?

-NO. Please reflect on the last 2.5 years of INCONVENIENCE. DISRUPTION is a key component of the Great Reset. The Resetters REQUIRE upheaval, confusion, frustration, and chaos to implement their ‘solutions.’

Do they care that a proportion of their customer base was going to withdraw their funds?

-NO. The New Normal Data Economy will be cashless and won’t depend on traditional deposits of income and liquid assets. The financial economy has been completely “reimagined” and is based on evaluating earth’s material resources, energy, and “natural processes,” such as cαrβοn sequestration.

Transactions will be at the mercy of the programmers of programmable money: A TOKEN economy (think of gift cards which limit how, where and what you can purchase). Moreover, the paradigm of currency–as we know it–will be completely replaced with CURRENCY OF BEHAVIOUR, NOT LABOUR. In English: we won’t have money, we’ll transact with a points system of credits and demerits according to our Social and Environmental footprint.

So why the backflip?

– DATA METRICS observed by the Internet of Eyes and Ears. AIB was a test case, ie., a trial balloon that didn’t pass the test. It rattled the complacency of too many people. People who had accepted all the health rheτοrίc, without much ado, finally peaked-out from their hiding place under their bed because NOW THINGS GOT PERSONAL. To paraphrase someone in the world: You can lie to people about many things, most of the time, but not everyone all the time.

It has always been apparent that the public will defer medical decisions to ‘experts’ and not comprehend that ‘the cure’ they’ve taken actually caused the next problem. But, when it comes to losing money, their senses are better attuned; it’s less personal, less ambiguous–even–less tolerable!

The ‘temperature reading’ of the public gauged too many people entertaining thoughts of cοnsρίrαcy τheοries. Planted 2 years ago, those seeds about cαshΙess society got a good watering. This is an ίnfοrmατίοn ωαr don’t forget.

Why AIB in Ireland ?

▪Western enough to extrapolate from

▪Large enough for quantitative numbers

▪English speaking so that it would land on the international stage

▪Yet small enough to be relegated to ‘blunder status’ of an unimportant bank, in an unimportant country, and thus forgotten quickly if things went wrong

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) was established to collect and disburse Germany’s World War I reparation payments, but by WW2 it was the primary war spoils money laundering operation for the Nazis — the irony is always rich with these sociopaths — and is today effectively the world central bank, or the bank of central banks. The BIS is the controlling node for all of the other central planning entitles such as The Fed, ECB, BOJ, etc. It controls most of the transferable money in the world, which it uses to drive sovereign governments into debt on behalf of the IMF.
Ironically, the BIS General Manager happens to be a man whose lack of impulse control as it pertains to his eating addictions directly carries over to his insatiable compulsion for tyranny: “We do not know who is using a hundred dollar bill today.”

The trial, which is voluntary, will use facial recognition to identify people and how many tickets they have. The technology could be extended to cover automated purchases at concession stands, restaurants, and bars.

The crisis is Capitalism.
Everything we’ve been through in the last 2.5 years is the direct result of the 2008 financial fiasco.
Obama rewarded and bailed out the criminals with YOUR TAX DOLLARS, NEVER HELD THEM TO ACCOUNT leaving them FREE TO GO ON AND COMMIT A BIGGER CRIME SPREE.
Let’s be very clear: this is an ongoing ClassWar, and they’re playing for all the marbles.
••••
“What we are in the midst of is a planned total economic collapse.
This economic collapse was inevitable, Western governments are putting the security infrastructure into place, trying to proactively control the inevitable social disorder which will result from this collapse. To be followed by a global financial reset, after a period of hyperinflation, which destroys both the value of debt and the corresponding paper claims.
(…)
The collapse started in 2008 and attempts to salvage this corrupt economic system only delayed the inevitable. In the Fall of 2019 the crisis began to rapidly unravel again.
There was a dramatic decrease in industrial production which showed up in the banking crisis of August of 2019- the so-called Repo crisis when suddenly banks started to refuse US sovereign debt instruments as collateral of overnight loans forcing the Federal Reserve to step in and basically print money to cover this massive shortage.
The Repo market is where banks borrow money each day so that they have 10% liquid assets at the end of each day. If they do not have 10% liquid assets they are not allowed to open the next day. Around the middle of September the Fed started pumping $20 billion per day into the Repo market to keep interest rates down so banks could borrow the money to stay in business. By the end of December the Fed was pumping over $100 billion per day into the Repo market and it was not enough.
Simply everyone on Wall Street was loaded with enormous debt and was holding on to US cash to be able to service it refusing to finance purchases of foreign currencies and then US currency as Repo Market froze at 10% interest on overnight Repo loans as US treasury bonds and even US bills were rejected as collateral for Repos.
What happened in March 2020 was just the spread of the liquidity crisis from primary dealers markets (TBTF banks and Hedge funds were actually bailed out in September) toward all other stock, commodities, bonds CLOs, MBS etc, as well to Ponzi schemes called today ETF funds, not to mention structured derivative products traded on proprietary platforms nominally representing up to several thousands of $$$ trillions.
When US treasury bonds and even USTB became illiquid due to exponential growth of public (but most of all private) dollar debt while the FED was sucking up cash from financial markets by tempering QE (called QT) between 2017 and 2019 reduced FED balance sheet from over $5 T to $3.9T by selling assets, all hell broke loose. Something drastic had to be done.
And hence the FED started to “buy all worthless shit for double the price”, Gates’s and Silicon Valley gang took over the media, and Orwellian shrinks and doctor Fauci-Mengeles came to the “rescue” unleashing operation CO VID.
CO VID phenomenon cannot be understood without understanding the un-televised 2019-2020 unprecedented financial collapse threatening the entire global financial system. The CO VID fraud timing became necessary as the world markets were faced with an emergency debt crisis that popped up in formerly mostly liquid markets: Repo markets, money markets and FX markets.
The entire House of Cards was falling for six months and could not be stopped so CO VID hysteria was manufactured to cover up what amounts today to $11 trillion of FED bailout in cash, stock boost via POMO and guarantees of value of collateral used in structured derivatives. The end game is that the central banks (Fed) will buy all the toxic, worthless debt from the hedge funds and banks, including the 1.5 quad trillion of derivatives, and then transfer the debt to the treasury as sovereign debt. Then print money to infinity to service the fictitious debt to sink the dollar via hyperinflation and then foreclose on the US and everyone else holding debt in worthless dollars.
That’s the coup. There will be global hyperinflation to vaporize the assets of the masses and the states- as soon as the ruling class mops up the last properties. What this means is the ruling class have limitless claims on everything in the world. Simply put, the seasonal [co ro navi rus] was rebranded as Co vid on the back of a redefinition of what a ‘pand emic’ was by the W H O at the bequest of its financiers. This unlocked access to financial incentive programs that were large enough to bail out every failing economy.
Co vid is the final heist to strip all value out of the world in an effort by the creditors to consolidate what they believe they’re owed.
These governments know full well that “Co vid” is being used as cover for crashing the economies in the Western world. There is not now and never has been a “pand emic”- that is all Kabuki theater to disguise the reality of the rapid economic decline brought on by the Ponzi Schemes of financial institutions over the past few decades”

And some replies to this post:

“It can’t be too comforting to the Fed that the same banks that cratered the global economy in 2008, and required a mind-blowing $29 trillion bailout, have a lot less capital than they had one year ago.
As of last Friday’s closing prices, five U.S. megabanks that constitute the core of the U.S. financial system have $300 billion less common equity market capitalization than they had one year ago on June 10, 2021.”
“Yes, the top 9 headlines on Google News just after the close of the stock exchanges in NYC today, were all about the Jan. 6 sideshow currently playing in Washington D.C.
The 10th story was about the weather.
So the beginning of the financial apocalypse did not even make the top 10 headlines today in the corporate news media (unless it was a financial media outlet).”
“The largest indicator that this financial apocalypse could no longer be hidden from the public came last week when JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, the most influential banker in the world, announced that we were facing a financial “hurricane.”
To be sure, he was not warning the public, but his Wall Street buddies and fellow bankers, that it was time to move on to the next phase of The Great Reset.
The entire financial system is on the brink of collapse, along with our fiat currency system and the U.S. dollar, which is all based on debt management and the Keynesian economic philosophy.
Many who understand how corrupt this economic system is, prefer the Austrian theory of economics and strong currencies which are not “fiat” currencies issued by Central Banks whenever they want, backed by nothing other than the reputation of those creating the money, but sound money backed by real assets, such as gold.
Richard Nixon took the United States off of the gold standard in 1971, and many believe we have been accelerating our economic demise since then, while others will go back further to the beginning of the Federal Reserve itself in 1913.”


Yep, all of it is on point, but especially this, which so many people are missing:
“The end game is that the central banks (Fed) will buy all the toxic, worthless debt from the hedge funds and banks, including the 1.5 quad trillion of derivatives, and then transfer the debt to the treasury as sovereign debt. Then print money to infinity to service the fictitious debt to sink the dollar via hyperinflation and then foreclose on the US and everyone else holding debt in worthless dollars.”


John Titus, Best Evidence, has some great analysis on the coup that occurred in 2008. Of course, the neo-liberal project began decades before, but it was at this juncture that an all-out financial coup occurred.


David Harvey wrote a great book on neo-liberalism and dedicated a chapter to NYC as a model for domestic policy when the City was teetering on bankruptcy in the 70s. It’s a text book example of how it works and I think it serves as the basis for smart cities/school models/4IR.


Crucial to point out that this total planned economic collapse is all happening from the midsection to the bottom. no one at the top is suffering, they’re banking record breaking profits and screwing the pooch six ways to Sunday… It’s not actually a total economic collapse it’s a fucking robbery


I am a member of the class of 90+% about to take a bath. This entire string of posts is the most reasonable explanation for the past several years events as I’ve run across. It’s also a reason why they don’t give a s*** about the environment or Justice or human rights. It’s all going to be delineated by wealth.

Here is a post from a friend of mine:

This is a must-read article. Russia is at war with Ukraine, the food and grain breadbasket of Europe. Russia is the largest exporter of wheat in the world. Food is an issue globally and in the U.S. The supply chain for food is also breaking down at the same time. It’s time to say no to control over food and free the farmers to do their time-tested job of feeding the world. ⁃ TN Editor


Here are some posts in reply to an Ice Age Farmer video about animals being killed as an attack upon the food supply and attacks upon crops by not having them planted:

My husband is a salmon fisherman here in northern Michigan. Last September during the salmon run he saw several DNR (Dept of Natural Resources) workers putting something in the river. They told him it was invasive lamprey control to protect the salmon. He told them that in all his years salmon fishing, he’s only seen evidence of lampreys once or twice, and the salmon population was healthy. Nevertheless, the told him they had a grant to rid the Great Lakes waters of lamprey and the salmon would not be harmed. He went back the next day and there were dozens of dead or half-dead salmon floating on the river and on the banks. He was so mad. No clue what that did to the other fish, frogs, and freshwater life in the river. We still can’t understand how or why that happened.


so glad you reported that. I have been sitting on some concerning events happened Northern Calif. summer 2021.
A helicopter buzzed down a big river, ( under the radar going super fast).
The next day the Eagles were gone and the crows were just going beserk.
Huge fish die off in the lake.
lots of white suburbans..road partially closed off.
guys go out in a boat to investigate.
This has REally been bothering me, but since i was just a volunteer with the government…I never even told anyone about the helicopter buzz.
I am quite positive no one else saw the copter but me.


I’m also from Michigan I saw a similar event near traverse city


yes they do it all the time down here in the south with bass,mullet,crappie and catfish. Biggest thing is algae blooms and invasive weed control.


wow i remember when i was in university studying environmental propaganda and i wrote a report on invasive lampreys in the great lakes. I have never seen any either and I lived in the great lakes my whole life. It is supposed to be a pheromone bait and an endocrine disruptor that targets specifically the lampreys. That would be insidious to find out that there is something more happening.


But don’t let your vehicle leak on the ground the epa with be there with their hazmat suits to make a big deal about it and fine the crap out of you. Don’t get me started with their craziness, you wouldn’t believe what they consider wetlands when it comes to you wanting to build something near it. But they get grants to “repair” the ecosystem that was just fine in the first place. I’m so furious that things have gone off the rails so far.


This is the same thing they did in Iran in the late 70s. Iran used to be one of the biggest exporters of rice. Then the UN “experts” came to “help”. Never before seen disease ensued. Now they have to import their rice.


At my local city lake in Omaha Nebraska they poisoned the lake to get rid of algae and within two weeks the whole lake was dead. The algae didn’t look any different than it ever did and I’m sure that poison is what killed all these huge (and little) fish that washed up on the banks it was really sad.

Eliminating borders and national sovereignty!


Yes, that is a large part of it, one of the reasons why some of us voted to Brexit. It is Agenda 21/2030. Flooding Europe and other countries with refugees has been part of the nefarious agenda for a very long time. Soros gave a speech at Davos a few years ago about the importance of mass migration to Europe and the UK. I cannot find it at the moment but it may well have been in 2017 when he did this interview with Bloomberg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz3MTcEqJ54


Yes, but Brexit was much ado about nothing. The elites needed to play it up between Leave and Remain and fund both sides to get people to fight each other. They did the same thing by having the Kochites fund the Tea Party and other groups and the Sorosites fund Occupy and other Lefties so that they could control both sides in the US from 2008-2020. I suspect that the Macron vs. Le Penn stuff in France was also controlled opp. Anyway, they were hailing guys like Borris Johnson (much like they did with Trump) as a hero for Brexit (at least they were in a Brexit group I was part of). I told the people in that group that the EUSSR was bad but their real enemies were the UN and their Sustainable Development Goals. The members of the group didn’t really seem to take me seriously, sadly. They thought that the once they were out of the EU, that they were safe.


Hey, whatever it takes to finally get the people’s attention! “If this doesn’t wake Aussies up nothing will!

Victoria’s farmers and other property owners are targeted under provisions of a dangerous new Bill that was debated in the State Legislature this week.

Called the Agriculture Legislation Amendment Bill 2022, the Bill has bipartisan support from both Labor and Liberal, despite the incredibly dangerous precedent it sets for state control over farmers’ property rights.

It is all being done under the guise of ‘Biosecurity’.

The ground has been prepared for months now by the mainstream media, who has run countless ‘scare’ stories around biosecurity threats – the dangers of which are all very real, but which the media never gave a damn about before.

But what everyone in the media and government knows is that anything that pretends to address ‘biosecurity’ will be a sure-fire vote-winner in the regions.

This Bill exploits this but it is a ‘Trojan Horse’, for another agenda altogether. One that is far less beneficial for farmers and one, I suspect, they may not be fully aware of.

When you boil everything down, the State’s new Agriculture Bill basically gives the Government complete and unfettered control over all forms of food production in Victoria.

It grants its agents enormous powers and allows them to show up and enter any farm in the State, without notice or warrant.

Agents do not even have to provide identification to property owners if requested to do so. The Bill specifically removes that right.

The government can take samples from your property, remove plants or livestock – even kill them.

Other provisions include beekeepers now being forced to ‘register’, while the State’s bees are to be implanted with tiny microchips so they can be tracked.

Market meat vendors must become ‘accredited’, something that involves huge upfront and ongoing costs as well total loss of autonomy and control.

The Bill threatens the country’s food security, particularly when viewed in the context of global food shortages, which we are told are just around the corner.

Anyone who thinks I’m exaggerating the danger here should take a look at yesterday’s news out of Northern Ireland.

Sheep farmers have been told that a million sheep must be culled in order to meet the government’s internationally-set emissions target.

There is also a massive concern around property rights overall, with the dangerous precedent set by the Bill, because there is nothing in the wording that restricts the new laws to farms.

This means the government can also enter private homes, seize owners’ pets – even kill them – and destroy any vegetable gardens or domestic chickens it finds.

Exactly as is happening right now in China.” (from a friend).

A prime example of DIY, SELF SERVICE in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The machines take your jobs YET STILL prices continue to rise (and not because the retail chains cannot absorb the cost of theft when they’ve got rid of most of their staff!)
No. A deliberate shakedown of farming, the engineered food supply breakdown, and inflation caused by the demolition of the financial system is what’s making living unaffordable.
Why?
To make everyone dependent on the Public Private Partnerships that will offer Universal Basic Income (programmable money) when CBDCs (central bank digital currencies) replace fiat cash.
Those cameras and scanners aren’t there to monitor theft; they’re there to authentically record and control who buys what, according to their carbon token rations; according to their social credit rating; according to their health biometrics; according to their blockchained behavioural compliance.
The MSM are feeding the television watchers an endless stream of false narratives.
Gullible people are led to believe:
■ machines taking their jobs is ‘inevitable progress’
■ machines are infallible and fair
■ that multi billion dollar upgrades to infrastructure are a convenience and the only ‘sustainable’ option for the future (rather than a digital prison)
■ bad people steal capsicums and cause the price of food to escalate
■ impoverished people are their enemy

SCARY STUFF!! IF YOU WANT TO BE AN INFORMED AMERICAN, PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ.
Copied from David K. Fitchner
They are trying to crush our country and bring it to a halt so they can bring in the new world order. Our country is standing in the way of this. Only way for it to move forward is to stop the US completely.
MOST IMPORTANT INFO YOU NEED TO KNOW TODAY IN REGARDS TO WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR WHEN IT COMES TO BUYING PRODUCTS FOR CONSUMPTION ( Food etc)
Do you know what DEF fluid is? It’s Diesel Exhaust Fluid. Every Diesel truck that has been made since 2010 is required to use it. It’s a product made of 67% Urea fertilizer and 33% distilled water. Every diesel truck you see driving down the road today has to have this product to drive. The engines won’t start without it. There are regulators inside the engine that mix DEF with the Diesel to reduce Diesel emissions. That’s the purpose of DEF.
Right now, Russia is the largest exporter of Urea by a wide margin. Qatar is second. Egypt and China are Tied for 3rd. Both Russia and China have decided to no longer export Urea. On top of that, India is the largest manufacturer of Urea in the world even though they consume most of what they make. What little they would export……….they no longer do. They are now stopping the exportation of any and all Urea minus a deal they just cut with Sri Lanka.
What does this mean for you and me? Well, first, the United States imports most of it’s Urea fertilizer. We are the third largest importer in the entire world. We depend on other countries to eat, drive and ship our products.
Secondly… Flying J is the largest Service provider for Truckers around the Unites States. I’m sure you’ve seen their massive gas stations when traveling around the country. Flying J gets 70% of their DEF fluid from shipments via Union Pacific railroad. UP has single user access to the Fertilizer plants that Urea/DEF fluid comes from. No other rail provider has access to these distribution points. This means Flying J can’t just go around Union Pacific. Union Pacific is in charge….for a reason I’m gonna mention in a few paragraphs.
Flying J provides 30% of all DEF consumed in the United States. UP has told Flying J to reduce their shipments by a whopping 50%. And if they do not comply then they will be completely embargoed. That would in effect bankrupt FJ. This means that 15% of all DEF consumed by truckers in the US is no longer available at the largest travel service center for the entire trucking industry.
Rome rotted from the inside out. It was easily invaded because it was occupied with internal problems. It appears we have discovered the Trigger. DEF fluid. If this holds up, DEF shortages will be the catalyst that causes food shortages in the coming months. Not only is there a shortage of fertilizer to grow crops in drought-stricken states (See Kansas’ drop in wheat production for 2022)….but….now it looks like, unless the Federal Government intervenes via the Defense Production Act, …which I am no longer confident they will….there is gonna be an absolute massive shortage of trucking in the coming months.
There simply isn’t going to be DEF fluid sufficient to keep the engines running and moving. Home Depot is now limiting the amount of DEF you can buy in their stores.
I would think long and hard about the decisions you are making right now. Where you live. What you spend money on. How you prepare. This is so real that the CEO of Flying J, Shameek Konar was summoned to a Surface Transportation Board hearing to give them all this info.
From what I’m reading….Blackrock is the majority shareholder of Union Pacific railroad. How is that important? Americas biggest fertilizer producer is CF Industries. Their largest shareholder is Blackrock. Blackrock controls the fertilizer industry in the U.S.. Union Pacific has exclusive rights to distribution points of fertilizer. Urea is fertilizer. Flying J needs Urea/DEF. Blackrock is controlling everything.
The Chairman of the BlackRock Investment Institute is Tom Donilon, President Obama’s former National Security Advisor. Tom Donilon’s brother, Mike Donilon is a Senior Advisor to Joe Biden. Tom Donilon’s wife, Catherine Russell, is the White House Personnel Director. Tom Donilon’s daughter, Sarah Donilon, who graduated college in 2019, now works on the White House National Security Council.
It appears Blackrock is spearheading the dismantling of the US system on behalf of the Globalists. And the first domino they are pushing over is the energy sector. They are using DEF to get the party started.


And some replies to this post:

Some clarification-
DEF is 67% water and 33% urea (yes, similar chemical composition to urine).
Not all trucks on the road use it, only those with engines manufactured after 2010.
Diesel engines can be “deleted” and run just fine (with reduced operating expenses and significantly reduced maintenance expenses), but they won’t meet the ridiculous EPA regulations.
This also includes farm equipment with diesel engines manufactured after 2010.


My son has his own 18 wheeler. He said today that it’s becoming difficult to find DEF. He also mentioned several area trucking businesses have quit. They no longer can afford to operate. One-half of his income is going for fuel. That should be about one-third. The upkeep of their equipment is not cheap.
I firmly believe that all this is by design by those we’ve elected to represent us! The politicians are not acting for the citizens’ interest. Why do they want to destroy the country that has been so good to them?



Here is post from another friend of mine:

Great doc on smart meters.


Here is a post from another friend of mine:

Corralling us into a “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society”?
At the second Earth Summit (the UN Conference on Environment and Development) in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, the United Nations launched Agenda 21 (since evolved as Agenda 2030, Sustainable Development Goals, Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Great Reset and other names) as a “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society.”
On the eve of the said Summit, the (Second) Most Important Bank You’ve Never Heard Of was established. According to the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) website, it is “to help tackle our planet’s most pressing environmental problems.”
In 1987, Edmund de Rothschild had glowingly announced the GEF project under another name at the 4th World Wilderness Congress:
“This International Conservation Bank must know no frontiers, no boundaries. Its funds must be used constructively … not to be channeled into greedy hands or weapons of destruction. I hesitate to link this bank with World Wilderness; but I would like to link it with our survival, as a human race. This, our generation, must not be cursed by our descendants — if we have any — as to the greatest destructors and squanderers of the world’s resources.”
Put under the umbrella of the World Bank, the World Conservation Bank was formally established as the GEF in 1991. Its 18 “implementing partners” included the Rockefeller-funded Food and Agricultural Organization, the foundation-funded and corporate-friendly International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the Maurice Strong-created United Nations Environment Programme, and the Prince Bernhard/Prince Philip-founded World Wildlife Fund.
The 1988 Economist cover then pitched us on getting ready for a single unified currency.
That was also the year that BlackRock was founded:
“Since 1988 the company has put itself in a position to de facto control the Federal Reserve, most Wall Street mega-banks, including Goldman Sachs, the Davos World Economic Forum Great Reset, the Biden Administration and, if left unchecked, the economic future of our world. BlackRock is the epitome of what Mussolini called Corporatism, where an unelected corporate elite dictates top down to the population.” F William Engdahl
Towards the end of 2020, Oilprice.com shared that BlackRock was looking to fuel a $120 trillion transformation on Wall Street. In his 2021 letter to CEOs, Larry Fink had decreed “a net zero economy” by 2050 or sooner: “I have great optimism about the future of capitalism and the future health of the economy — not in spite of the energy transition, but because of it.”
Then in April 2021, wire service Dow Jones heralded:
“If you sell a house these days, the buyer might be a pension fund.”
Interesting coincidences or a deliberate, planned and sustained effort by the people behind the “invisible hand” for the corporate takeover of our lives?

Quote from a lawyer “florida will no longer be a place to retire. It will be a place to get foreclosed on”…
Most people consider a condo different from an apartment. Newsflash, it’s not.
With all these new condo laws coming no average person who isn’t even considered “middle class” will be able to afford one. This doesn’t even stop at condos, this is ANY BUILDING over 2 stories high. So everyone who lives in apartments, get ready for your rent to increase SUBSTANTIALLY higher. And I’m not talking a few hundred, I’m talking a few thousand.
With so many buildings down here that were built during the cocaine/corruption years (70’s-late 90’s)- so many developers cut as many corners as they could like the Champlain Surfside condo towers that collapsed.
READ THE NEW CONDO/APARTMENT LEGISLATION FOR 2022. A knee jerk reaction to the condo collapse, but a planned one.
There’s gonna be MASSIVE amounts of money and work that needs to be done and my condo/apartment alone absolutely would not pass. They KNEW this was going to happen, developers are probably sharpening all their tools RIGHT NOW. We don’t even have enough structural engineers down here to do all of this. People don’t even understand how many fixed income and low income families are gonna be misplaced and homeless. Great job Florida! Great job cheap ass developers who like to cut all these corners and use cheap products so you can save a buck on behalf of other people’s lives. Just another blow to hard working people who never get a break.
When I spoke to the bank who is lending my building money on a conference call, he was the same guy who lent money to the surfside condo, he stated that “most buildings built before the 90s will need to be LEVELED to the ground because NO engineer who is ethical will EVER put their name on the inspection if you’re failing.
You expect me to believe that this all wasn’t planned? Okay. Gtfoh. I’m sick of this. I’m more sick of the way my buildings handling it.
I know everyone thinks this should be a great lawsuit, but I’ve spoken to multiple lawyers and it’s typical. No one cares about the broke person who is getting screwed. It’s as simple as that. No one gives a flying F about anything. SINK OR SWIM! GOOD LUCK!


And some replies to this post:

the agendas at play are going to be Nation wide. Taking away private property is a global goal.


this is exactly it and I’ve been saying this to people I know and no one freaking believed me and now look. It’s just crazy. I’m so sick to my stomach about it. It’s really right in my back yard at my door and I can’t escape it.


conveniently home owners and renters have zero rights. Home owners actually have less rights right now opposed to a renter. It’s sick.

The 4IR is legit in my backyard and I guarantee this is how they’ll hit Florida and Texas and Arizona. If they can’t do it another way, they’ll go after everyone who is low income or middle class or retirees. This way the ultra rich can just keep taking over south Florida like they want to. It’s sickening honestly. These developers are probably dying with excitement.

Just like gentrification, these giant developers want these older condominium buildings to be leveled so they can buy up the land. So you have these rich people coming in and taking over boards (like what happened to me). And then when these special assessments come and our buildings don’t pass inspection, they call their developer friend and in this case our president has a son who is, and they buy out units for pennies on the dollar and we lose everything and everyone goes into bankruptcy. I feel stupid for not doing my research before I went into this building. Everything was great until these people came in and took over the board. Technically condos are listed as non profits, so it’s a business to which I am 1/40 owner. So if the CEO takes out a loan, I’ll definitely have to pay it. What sucks is that I know this is part of a much bigger plan than what I originally thought. And it doesn’t seem like I can do anything but get screwed. I’ll probably lose everything I ever worked for. Which really really sucks and I can’t deal with it somedays.


btw your governor DeSantis is a jew lover. i have pics of him in the little hat at the wailing wall in Jerusalem 🙁 EVERYONE LOVES HIM but they are not seeing straight.


he was part of the world economic forum as well

this is crazy but if you listen to the 1hr mark and on, it’s everything I’ve been scared about being confirmed.

such a perfectly planned crisis that came about due to the Surfside condo collapse. My worst fears are coming true right this second. It is hard to get thru the day sometimrs.

it’s horrifying to hear everything I’ve been fearful of being talked about by a lawyer. It confirms every single thing I have been thinking they’re doing.

And another post from her:

“Crooked banks around the world will gladly give a loan today so if you ever miss a payment they can take your home away”

Think “you’ll own nothing and be happy” was a joke?

Agenda 2030 and the 4IR/ SDGs literally said we would all be shoved into mega regions. Well how could they ever do that? I can tell you. Think your safe in FL? Texas? They’re taking their first good swing at low income and middle class families in FL right now.

Think again. This new legislation about the “safety of multi level buildings” (give me a break). Wanna know how they get you out of the only affordable housing left that you rent or own?

They go after every single building above two stories and do multiple inspections on older buildings that will obviously fail and they have NO intention of helping you fix them. Multiple fines, multiple assessments. Before you know it you can’t afford it. Not enough structural engineers. Not enough architects. Funny how the rich tech bros from Cali and NY come down and now they’re already preparing.

Does anyone realize how many multi story buildings and condos Florida has? They allowed this to go on for 40 years and NOW they care?! GIVE ME A BREAK. THIS WAS PLANNED.

How many people can afford millions of dollars? People living in apartment complex’s usually don’t have THOUSANDS stored away for emergencies. So there you go, eliminate the affordable housing, level a ton of buildings. Go after condos, sorry now you’re homeless. What do they do? Create state run apartment buildings for EVERYONE on fixed income, older people, younger people, poor people, any type of people this is where you will go.

Lawyers said even if you have a million, it won’t matter. You think you’re gonna be able to continue living there when the state deems it unlivable? Think about it for a second. Florida especially south Florida and anywhere along the coast, the ultra rich want your property. Foreign developers, big money banks have been buying up land for years down here. This is beyond gentrification. This is misplacing everyone for SDGS.

Don’t tell me these people won’t be able to pull it off. They’ve already taken one swing at this state and they won. Passed every single bill unanimously. IF LAWYERS ARE TELLING US TO MAKE NOISE IT’S BAD. It’s so bad. They said million’s of people will be out on the streets. And the state made ZERO plans for people who won’t have anywhere to go. If you do not believe me, listen to the video. Do your research like I did. It’s happening to me RIGHT NOW. This was a warning from the same people who drafted the legislation. It’s insane.

If people can’t afford to fix these issues, and rent comes to $5,000 a month, NO ONE will rent it. Then what? The building gets leveled. They’ve been gentrifying lake worth and now they’re gonna do it everywhere.

This will come to you no matter WHERE you live. You will not be able to escape it. You won’t. You need to start fighting back.

They said they wanted to eliminate poverty. But they never explained how they were gonna do it. I’m showing you how it will happen in Florida. IT’S HAPPENING TO ME RIGHT NOW.

I feel sorry for those who escaped to Florida thinking that they would be free and they would save money.

Like I said, if you’re thinking about escaping to Florida and buying an affordable home or renting, you’re options are not going to be here soon. This is only one article. And since this article was published, every single stringent law was passed unanimously. They are ELIMINATING any form of affordable housing. Big developers want your land, they’ll level the building and you won’t get shit. It’s literally happening to me right now as I type this. I’m losing everything. I’m pissed and I’m beyond frustrated and I can’t sleep at night, but it’s happening. People can call it gentrification or pushing poor people and middle class families out. And a lawyer I spoke to would actually agree with you and say how sorry they are but lobbyists won.

This is how the decimate the middle class what’s left of it, and then hurt poor people the most. Typical class war. So many people have confronted their govts accusing them of a scheme so developers and banks and rich foreign investors can get rich off of our suffering. And they haven’t had much to say to deny it.

Once there is no more affordable housing in FL, where will people go? What about the elderly who live on fixed income? Well, in my building they ALREADY foreclosed on him. He was a disabled Vietnam vet with no legs and they still didn’t give AF. That is where they are at with this. Your pain and suffering WON’T MATTER. They don’t even care about the ten of us who won’t be able to afford large assessments and a ridiculous loan. They laughed and said “well maybe you shouldn’t have bought here then”. THAT is their attitude.

And like I said before if you’re not a home owner it doesn’t matter. You’re still getting hit. Rents are about to be substantially higher than they ALREADY are thanks to “inflation” but we all know it’s really greed. This will be yet ANOTHER reason to charge you more. And if you think you’ll find a place, good luck. Most of the people I know, are trying to look for places and they’ve had little to no luck. In fact every day the news has another story on about even someone who works for the city cannot find an apartment so they’re sleeping at a hotel every single night. Which leads me to motels and hotels. They’re getting hit too. So they won’t even be an option if you need an affordable place to sleep.

I know I’ve been posting every single day multiple times a day about this but I cannot stop. This is happening and most people don’t even see it.

If you thought the 4IR was a joke and agenda 2030 isn’t happening, I’m here to tell you Florida is well underway. If they can’t get you to vote for it, the banks and the govt will hit you where it really hurts. Where you live. People think this won’t affect apartments because “they aren’t condos”. But you’re wrong because there isn’t much of a difference AT ALL. A condo is literally a glorified apartment in most cases, and where I live apartments are actually nicer!

I don’t know how much more I can even say, other than people SERIOUSLY need to step up and start speaking out and fighting it. Those days are gone where your neighbor looks out for you. People could care less most of the time.

“While lenders and condo boards are in a standoff, it is sellers and buyers who are suffering, as their deals fall apart because their lenders won’t close the loans without the completed forms.

Freddie and Fannie guarantee or buy mortgages from lenders, making the loan less of a risk to issue. If the loan doesn’t meet the new requirements and the mortgage giants won’t back it, the lender often won’t issue the loan.

“If I were a homeowner trying to sell my condo and this was preventing me from doing so, I would be furious,” said Polomis. “I’d be upset with my association, but the association board has a fiduciary duty to do what is best for the entire association. Everyone is doing a dance of balancing the risk and liabilities.”

“I feel for the sellers because of the money they have to leave on the table,” said Muellenbach. “The number of potential buyers has decreased significantly. If they can’t get a conventional loan on the place, you’re losing out on a lot of buyers.

The rules are causing such confusion that a national organization representing condo associations has requested the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the government regulator that oversees Fannie and Freddie, pause the rules for a year.

“Credit worthy borrowers have been denied credit to purchase homes and refinance mortgages in condominium and cooperative projects with no safety, soundness, structural integrity, or habitability concerns because of the temporary guidelines,” wrote the Community Associations Institute in a letter to FHFA.

Condos are an affordable housing option in many markets, especially for first-time homebuyers, people with moderate income levels and seniors,” said Bauman. “People coming in with all-cash offers are NOT the people who need affordable options.”

And yet another post from her:

Sorry to make yet another post about this.

But it’s just astonishing to me.

My boss was just telling me how they cheated making these buildings in the 1980s and the 70s down here. He said in the 90s when he was down here, engineers were cheating and allowing them to cut down on costs like watered down concrete. He said you could take a bat and it would just break. He said he dropped steal and it sunk into the concrete. He said it’s hard on the outside but it’s so brittle on the inside. He said balcony’s we’re sinking. He said they’d take 200 buckets of concrete and make it into 400 and put a hose in it to stretch it. That kills people. Just like cutting corners with rebar.

This is why it’s such a joke that the city and building inspectors even allowed this shit to happen. He said he couldn’t believe how corrupt these buildings are and how corrupt FL was. He said no way engineers nowadays are gonna mess with any of these old buildings. He doesn’t even think mine is salvageable.

Imagine how many are built like this because there was no guidelines and shitty building codes…

Dude they knew this shit was gonna happen forever. What a time to pick to fix it. Lines up perfectly with 2030.

“Residents of condos across Florida and beyond are watching developments here with anxiety about their own safety. The ramifications of what happened in Surfside likely are to be enormous.”

South Florida’s long and sordid history of shoddy building practices is hard to ignore in the wake of the Surfside building’s partial collapse.

“Engineers say it can take just 30 years for condominium buildings to reach a point when owners can no longer delay making critical repairs.

In the Miami region, two out of every three condo buildings are more than 30 years old, according to data compiled by real-estate data firm Zillow for The Wall Street Journal. In at least seven other Florida cities, some three-quarters of condo buildings have hit that age.”

Condominium construction was red-hot then, fueled in part by what would turn out to be a disastrous deregulation of the nation’s savings and loans associations. We know that building codes for single-family homes during that era were weak, and enforcement was lax, something that became terribly apparent when Hurricane Andrew roared through southern Miami-Dade County.

“The report didn’t indicate a threat of imminent disaster, and a month later, Surfside’s chief building official told residents the condominium was “in very good shape,” according to minutes from a November 2018 board meeting obtained by the Miami Herald. Additionally, the building had begun its scheduled 40-year review and roof repairs had started.

That will cost money, a lot of it. Retrofitting old buildings and constructing new ones to higher standards costs more. But if — as we learned post-Andrew — cost-cutting is what led to this disaster, we’ll have no choice. We’ll need to pay up, and just be grateful that we’re around to pay the bill.”

_______________

And yet another post from her:

This problem is well beyond Florida.
A Sarasota condo building that nearly collapsed in 2010 had more than a million dollars in reserves; the repair bill was estimated at $18 million, and owners had to find somewhere else to live for years while repairs took place. (In that case, the board succeeded in saving the building at the cost of $12 million, but only after a mandatory evacuation order that stretched into years long exile. Many owners could not handle the repair bills and were forced to sell to investors at huge losses.)
“The cracks in the concrete suddenly feel like chasms. As South Florida reels from the tragedy in Surfside, condo owners across the region—and as far away as New York and California—are looking with new, worried eyes at rust, water damage, and spalling, a word we all learned this week. Anxiety is in the air at Champlain Towers North, the mirror image of the collapsed building, and at Maison Grande in Miami Beach. Surfside residents have called up the town’s mayor to ask if buildings on the ocean are safe, and the mayor of Miami-Dade County has ordered emergency audits of all older apartment buildings under the county’s jurisdiction.”
Hopefully, the 2018 engineer’s report that warned of
“major structural damage” to be dealt with in the “near future” does not ring any bells for most apartment owners. But the foot-dragging that followed that report, as the Champlain Towers South Condominium Association struggled to rally owners to pony up for a $15 million repair project? That speaks to a fundamental failure of condo governance—deferred maintenance and trouble raising money—that goes far beyond South Florida.
More than half of America’s multifamily building stock is now more than 40 years old. In a country less fixated on the eternal upward march of home prices, those buildings might move down the ladder to affordable housing until they are finally DEMOLISHED and REPLACED with something NEW. But even in that event, the exit strategies are limited. In many states, including Florida, 80 percent of condo owners in a building must agree to a sale, with mandatory buyouts imposed on the rest. In some older structures, the decision must be unanimous. That makes it really hard to “deconvert,” or sell the entire complex to a single investor-buyer—as some older condos in Chicago have voted to do, faced with repair assessments that make up more than a quarter the value of the apartment. It’s hard to escape condo jail.
Today, contrary to popular perception, new condos are an endangered species: In 2017, the census counted just 14,000 completed co-ops and condo units, part of an extended lull that set in during the Great Recession. But the problem of good repair and collective action is not confined to apartment buildings; on the contrary, the Champlain Towers South condo board is American local governance in a nutshell.
HOAs sometimes face more serious issues down the road, too. Developers have come up with clever and complex arrangements to pass costs onto buyers, the community equivalent of cheap fixtures that break after a few years. These might include sewers or flood prevention infrastructure whose upkeep, before you know it, falls to unprepared neighbors.

In my neighborhood, the parking lot of the local station of the rapid transit system which serves the SF Bay Area, BART, is being turned into “affordable housing” towers, the lowest income level to be accommodated is $60K/year. The towers will rise to 7 stories to start with, have clearance to 12 stories eventually. Nothing currently in the immeidate area with over 2 stories, quite a ways to get to places with 3 stories, and here comes this monstrosity. Same thing at the station at the other (south) end of town. The downtown station already has no parking lot and one tower after another is being build.



And yet another post from her:

Another case of this bullshit.
It happens all the time. Literally.
“Schafer is referring to a group of investors who recently bought 80 percent of the condos in her development, Madison Oaks in Palm Harbor, Florida. The investors want to buy out the remaining owners and convert the complex into rental apartments, but they are offering far lower than the owners originally paid—and they may have the legal right to do it.
“They don’t care. To them it’s business. To us, it’s everything,” said Schafer, who said she owes more than $90,000 on her mortgage and is being offered just $40,000 by the investors.”
“223 complexes have already been terminated in the last seven years, and only six were due to the original intent of the law, which was economic waste or natural catastrophe,” said Krasowski. “That leaves 217 complexes. That’s approximately 10,000-plus families losing their homes for the financial gain of a bulk buyer.”
Similar stories are emerging across Florida, as investors see the potential of lucrative apartment rents in the near term, as well as the potential of once again selling the units as condos down the road, once home prices recover. About 30,000 apartments were converted to condos during the housing boom, and many are in the same predicament. An amendment has been written in the Florida state legislature to change the terms of condo conversions once again, this time requiring that investors pay owners 110 percent of what they originally paid for the units. The amendment is still in process.

■ “environmentally friendly” (curb use of private vehicles)

The grounds they DID NOT gaslight the television watchers with is:

■ ‘safety & security.’ [I’m a little disappointed in the script writers for not weaving that in. I would fire them if I were a Resetter]

■ ‘diversity’ [I’m positive I could’ve come up with something]

■ ‘Inclusivity’ [they touched on it in a roundabout way]

■’Equity’ [as above]

The journalists did an exceptional job of not questioning privacy. Well done 4th Estate!👏

AUSTRALIANS, how long is it going to take to understand we’re living in an open air ρrίsοn?

Here is a post that I found online:

“The Irish Independent can reveal that in the event of a national fuel crisis, emergency contingency measures discussed at the high-level meeting include:
:: All non-essential workers will be ordered to work from home
:: A limit will be placed on all non-essential car travel
:: A strict limit on the amount of fuel motorists can buy at any one time
:: The implementation of an immediate and strict reduction in the speed limit on motorways.
The plan also includes the introduction of an emergency scheme whereby motorists with an odd number at the end of their car registration will only be allowed to drive or refuel on alternate days.”

Here is a post from a friend of mine from Australia:

“This company- Aurecon (or AUstralian Recon-struct) is a key player in new infrastructure being developed on behalf of our sell out government. They are literally involved in everything being built for the globalist fourth industrial revolution. From data centres, defence projects, road and rail infrastructure, water treatment…..you name it, they have a finger in it.. They are the principle Technical Advisory firm for the South Australian government, and have previously been the developer used for the upgrades at Cultana Army Base (formerly Baxter detention centre). Many may not remember, but this is where refugees were abused routinely at Baxter during the Howard government, by guards working for Wackenhut Security – a company owned by the Carlyle Group (owned by Soros, Bush, Romney to name a few).
Why don’t we hear more about a company that is literally re-shaping our country’s key infrastructure? Who are they? Their website is littered with “sustainable development goals” and “Carbon Zero” strategy rubbish…….this is a dangerous company Australia……and it appears they have been given the keys to the castle by our overlords. Spend some time looking at their projects…”
[HERE’S A RESEARCH PROJECT AND ACCOMPANYING VIDEO ASKING TO BE MADE. WHO ARE AURECON? WHY HAVE THEY GOT THEIR FINGERS IN EVERY IoT PIE? 4IR SEEMS TO BE THEIR SINGULAR MISSION. A CORPORATION COLLABORATING WITH DEFENCE MANAGING AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTIONS. ARE THEY A BRANCH OF WEF? -C.N]

And some replies to this post:

Caryle now there is an interesting one. Look at how many fashion houses they are involved with. $ made from mining and energy and and and needs to be made legitimate. What better way than thru frocks and shops…


they also own Statestreet- the parent company of Dominion voting systems. Operated in the same Canadian building as the Open Societies foundation. Very interesting company…..private equity so no public scrutiny.


One of their recent CEOs was the now current governor of VA, the so-called people’s choice who spoke out against radical sex ed and CRT, but is actually a CFR member and whose company had mandated the jab (not sure if he was CEO at the time) for all its workers. Also, speaking of CRT, etc, apparently the move of DeSantis the Dirty to ban all these CRT textbooks was also to give Carlyle group a monopoly or something like that. Also, I think I read somewhere that Caryle had some ties to Epstein.

…..also look into this company
Uptime. They provide the certification for NEXTDC data centres……very prominent in the data and digital twin arena. Simon Cooper is the COO…..I will look into his affiliations with other players, but this is a site worthy of investigation. Have a look at the partners…..you are talking about WEF level business partners shaping the future of digital transformation right out in the open……
https://uptimeinstitute.com/tier-certification


all the certifications are bullshit. Bcorp. Most have human rights violations against them. Now they are going after food. Produce. If they can track and certify everything to make a profit they will. Like everything they do. Alot of the universities and mbas online. Them. Alot of the courses online and thru their affiliated business. All bullshit.

Do a search on those names … aka name wef for example on either WEF SITE OR JUST GENERAL SEARCH… you find the ties…

Dig around a bit into the background of this company…I’ll give you a hint it’s a newly merged company operating within Australia (a Southern suburb of Brisbane to be precise) bet you can’t guess who the company was they merged with 🤔 starts with a P!

Here is a post from a friend of mine:

Pablo (Montana) is home to the National Bison Range. With a population of approx. 2000, it is located in a large, beautiful valley, and serves as a corridor between Flathead Valley and Missoula. I drove through yesterday surrounded on both sides of the highway by > 100 SmartCity poles and LEDLights within one mile. A year ago, there were ZERO street lights of any kind! THIS is being done in the name of energy conservation. (LED lights reduce energy consumption by about 40-60%). THINK


And some replies to this post:

The New Normal logic is my favourite kind. Reducing zero energy expenditure of no street lamps by installing hundreds of LED lights and Smart Poles. Makes perfect sense in an inverted world.


Beyond all that, it’s all BS – it has nothing to do with energy conservation, everything to do with world domination, control and enslavement of global population.


On the Salish-Kootenai Indian Reservation where the government has tons of control. The natives should be irate over this.


Maybe, but maybe the leadership is corrupt. I heard, a short time ago, in an anti-mask group, that the Navajo reservations are still mandating the face diaper, so apparently their leadership is as corruptible as the rest of us, sadly.


Led lights are weapons.
5G led transmission isn’t just a street light.


it sickening. I want to stop all of this and it seems impossible, which is maddening and beyond frustrating to me.


What to be stoped is nanotechnology. Smaller scale metals in (nm) are now used in foodagriculture, biomedics, textiles, industry, renewable energy, electronics which are proved to be the best superconductors in conversions, with high risks of toxicity, and alterations with protein synthesis or in bioelectrochemical process with deadly side effects of which we humans are subjected to.
Why? Because nanotechnology is unregulated by state agencies with no toxicity and validated tests


I spent two summer vacations in Livingston, Montana in the early aughts. I learned from people who befriended me that Silicon Valley had invaded Montana the way rich people bought up land in Colorado years before. Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, all wild and beautiful places I have stayed, are hubs for the wealthy. It seems apparent that SV influence plays a great role in the smart citification of wilderness areas.


Silicon Valley, Israel, DoD, DARPA, Dept. of Homeland Security et al are building the infrastructure for the digital prisons (many that are building it don’t even know it). The blueprint and installations are being orchestrated by the United Nations and WEF via Public Private Partnerships (behind which lie the money printing presses and the masters who control them).


So much light pollution too. I was there 2 years ago and you’re right, nothing out there. No one in Montana except you is taking about this.


Most people are focused on elections. I wish they would understand that no government official at any level Is able to do a thing about this. Their powers (STATE and LOCAL) have all been stripped when they took free money in the name of “grants” from the “feds”
