“IT ISN’T PRETTY”
by Sher Zieve, ©2013
(May 9, 2013) — Recently, I met a remarkable woman who has accomplished an extraordinary work in her mission toward educating the American people of a clear and present danger to their children and the methods by which said danger can be stopped. This lady’s accomplishments speak for themselves.
Christina Michas is the Founder and Leader of the Palm Springs Patriots Coalition and President, Eagle Forum Palm Springs. Prior to getting involved in politics and issues facing our nation, Christina was the Owner of a Design and Development Business. Christina felt the calling to stop her business, completely, and get involved in saving her country. This led to her becoming involved in politics and their attendant issues full time. As a result, in February, 2009 she founded the Palm Springs Patriots Coalition. Since then, Christina has been involved in many organizations and events, while continuing to work with her group to educate and activate people in her community. She has worked diligently with her local officials to bring positive changes to local area cities. She was the VP of Marketing for Consumers Power Alliance (CPA), a coalition of groups dedicated to stopping Smart Meter Installations in California. Through the work of CPA, they won the right for all Californian’s to opt out of Wireless Smart Meters.
Christina is the recipient of the 2010 Salvatori Award from the Heritage Foundation for her instrumental work in the Tea Party Movement. Christina is also a producer for Breaking News Journal. Today Christina is the Co-founder of a newly formed Coalition called CURE (Citizens United for Responsible Education) to join in the fight to stop the Common Core Curriculum Standards of a Government led take over of our education system. She has been on numerous local and national radio shows in the effort to educate and activate citizens and to encourage all to get involved. As Christina states, ” It is time for all of us to step up and take personal responsibility for what is happening in our nation”, to become our own representatives and to stop looking to Politicians to fix the problems. Christina is a Greek American and is strong believer in the Lord from which she draws her strength. This enables her to look at current events objectively through the prism of the Bible and end time prophecy.
Sher: Christina, thanks so much for being here with me, today. You are doing an extraordinary job of bringing the truth about what is happening in the government public school system in the USA…and it isn’t pretty. During his brutal reign in Russia, in which he established the Soviet Union or USSR, created the Secret Police, established Siberian prison camps, killed thousands of peasants when they did not work as hard as the ruling Communist elites demanded or if they questioned anything these same Communists did, Vladimir Lenin also, said: “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” He was referring to the Luciferian Communist Party’s child education–aka indoctrination–system. “Common Core” appears to have all of the earmarks of the old USSR’s programming system for children with several new innovative and chilling twists. It is also firmly tied to Agenda 21–the land-grabbing and human suppression and depopulation program.
Would you give us a brief synopsis of what Common Core is, and why it is so dangerous to our children and to us all?
Christina: Common Core is a Nationalized Federal government takeover of our Education system which of course is against the law, as the Federal Government is not allowed to set any educational curriculum standards–a right reserved to the States. Least of all do they have the power to create a one size fits all complete take over of education on all levels. This is a States rights issue. The Federal Government has standardized the education curriculum that will apply to all public schools, charter schools, private schools, Christian schools and homeschooling. No one is safe from this new mandate. Common Core Standards are being mandated and implemented by the Federal Government via organizations such as National Governors Association, Achieve, and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
What makes common core so dangerous to our children and us is becoming more evident each day. First of all, it is a one size fits all, education takeover. So, let’s say your child has a learning disorder. He or she will be left behind, as CC has no provision for helping those that can’t keep up.
The comparison of Nazism and Common Core (CC) are uncanny. One such comparison is that Nazism had Leaders and Master Teachers in the National Socialists Teachers League that visited schools and kept data files on Teachers. The Obama Administration funded 10,000 Master Teachers (MT’S) to train Teachers on CC and the MT’s will keep data files on students and Teachers. Students were taught to spy on parents and teachers. CC will have students as young as 5 participating in the evaluation of Teachers. In Nazism, the curriculum was rewritten to provide a Nazi (government) approved curriculum.. Common Core curriculum is being rewritten to provide a global approved curriculum. Nazism kept huge data files on students and teachers and Common Core will data mine the students with over 400 different data points on each child, their family and teachers from pre-kindergarten to workforce…And one final comparison is Nazism had strong Teachers’ Unions (NSTL). We have but to look at how powerful the Teacher’s unions are in our country and only growing stronger in power and influence under this current Obama Administration’s unholy alliance with them at America’s expense and the expense of the education of our children.. The quality of the educational standards of our children has suffered at the hands of these Teachers’ Unions. Common Core is no different. Our children will suffer at the hand of a government controlled education system. They will no longer be able to have dreams and goals but only those that the government wishes them to have (UNESCO –A21). If this isn’t Nazism, Communism, Marxism and all the “ism’s”, I don’t know what is. The worst part is they are lying to parents and teachers about what Common Core really is and the effects it will have. Teachers don’t even realize that their jobs are in jeopardy for, if they do not conform, they will be removed.. But, then again, were not the people of Russia, Germany etc. all deceived until it was too late??
You asked why it is dangerous? In addition to the above, according to the Dept. of Education’s own document, Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance, they outline the data mining methods that will be used on the children. fMRI’s will be used through their computers to scan the child to see how they react to different stimuli (pg. 32)…On page 44 of the same document, they show the different technologies that will be used such as Facial Expression Cameras that will be on the computer, Posture Analysis Seats, Pressure Mouse and Wireless Skin Conductance Sensors.. All of these methods, along with the other data they will collect on families, religious affiliations, voting affiliations, health records, whether or not families own guns etc. are just a few of the data points they want to collect from the children. Children will be encouraged to spy and report on what their families do at home…Sounds like one of the famous “ism’s” to me. Big Brother will know everything about how you and your children live, work and play… None of the technology being used has been tested to see what effects, if any, it will have on the children. And, if that is not enough, the Master Teachers will be instructing the Teachers to not teach our nations framework or any form of nationalism. Instead they will be trained to be “good global, sustainable citizens” prepared for a global world not our proud heritage as we were taught. They will become a “managed work force” for the New World Order…Many will be forced to choose a career path by 9 years old based on the data mined on each child.. Children will be separated based on how their data is analyzed to see if they will comply or be rebellious and will be placed into groups accordingly…Communist China has this method. The Chinese government decides what “career” you will have.. No longer will a child be able to strive to achieve his or her own goals.. They will be “managed.”
Children will no longer be taught the usual math, literature, history or social studies. The curriculum, as designed, will change how children learn as much of our history has been distorted or eliminated by the authors of Common Core. Teachers will teach to the test only.. They say that it is to the child’s benefit not to teach them critical thinking and problem solving, but rather to memorize desired information; teaching to tests only.. It will be the dumbing down of our children.
Many of our states currently have superior curriculum to CC but it will be discarded in favor of the inferior CC Curriculum.. California is one State believe it or not.. The adoption of Common Core Curriculum Standards will be substantially identical across all states, “a one size fits all” and does not address the unique individuality of each child. It is teaching children all the same thing at the same time regardless of their developmental or language differences.
These are just a few examples of what Common Core is and why it is dangerous for our children and us. Many corporations are lining up at the gravy trough as they will be poised to make a bundle especially the tech industries.. Microsoft, Google, AT&T, and many others are signed on along with Exxon Mobile, Walmart, General Electric, Warren Buffet, and George Soros. William Ayers of the Weather Underground Terrorist organization along with his good friend, Linda Darling Hammond, both far left radicals; Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; Jeb Bush is a strong proponent.
Mark Tucker, President of the National Center on Education and the Economy is another radical from the Clinton era and was instrumental in the development of this plan. His plan in a letter to Hillary Clinton in Nov. 1992 lays out his goal to “remold the entire American system” into a seamless web that literally extends from cradle to grave” and is the same system for everyone (Common Core). Tucker’s plan would change the mission of the schools from teaching children academic basics and knowledge to training them to serve the global economy in jobs selected by workforce boards. Hence all the corporate involvement.
Tucker’s plan was implemented in 3 laws and passed and signed by President Clinton in 1994. “The Goals 2000 Act”, “The School-to-Work Act” and the “Reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act.”
Arne Duncan, Sec. of Education is a strong proponent with UNESCO. So are the Pearson Foundation and Gulen Foundation (Charter Schools in the US), just to name a few.
Sher: Which US States have already agreed to the Communist Common Core teaching methods and why do you believe they did so?
Christina: 46 States signed on to Common Core and RTTT Grants between Nov. 2009 and Jan. 2010. The States were given 2 months to comply or lose their grant monies. When will the States learn to say “no” to the dangling carrot of the Federal Government money bribes? States need to wake up and just say “no”! Now if a State wants to opt out of Common Core, it will have to go through the legislatures and governors, which is what should have happened in the first place. Most all states signed on without their legislatures knowledge or input and none of them actually “read the standards” as they were not yet developed but signed on, sight unseen. There are currently approximately 23 states that are in the process in one form or another of removing Common Core from their respective states.
Common Core was funded through the stimulus bill in 2009. What happened to those “shovel ready jobs”? Instead, we got “shoveled” a United Nations UNESCO global education agenda. The Tides Foundation in conjunction with UNESCO and Bill Gates of Microsoft had this program prepared prior to Obama’s election and once elected, the funding was incorporated into the Stimulus and funded without knowledge or consent of Congress as usual. Deception! The government created a Race to the Top Grant program that was used to coerce the States into signing onto this Curriculum sight unseen. If they did not agree to implement the Common Core Curriculum, the educations grant monies for the States was withheld. This was bribery by our Government to force the States to sign or lose grants for education. The Common Core was developed and implemented without State legislative authority and funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation by at least $173 million dollars and still climbing. They claim it is a “State Led Initiative or Standard”. They Lie!! the States had no input or choice. They were coerced. Now that they have signed onto this Common Core Curriculum Standard, the States sadly abdicated their States rights to have local control of education.
I understand that teachers will now be renamed “facilitators” and that actual history will continue to be rewritten by the Common Core groups. In what other ways will classroom “facilitating” and children be trained to become the elites‘ ‘good new world order global citizens’?
They now have what they call “Master Teachers” that will be teaching the teachers on how to teach to Common Core.
At some point, teachers or “facilitators” will actually be irrelevant. They do not want Teachers force-feeding “education.” According to the Master Teacher’s presentation, they want a greater emphasis on development of the child’s voice vs the Teachers voice. Teachers or “Facilitators” are taught not to have an adherence to the text, as “Truth is relative”; that “history has no distinct truth.” Children will have no moral compass and no allegiance except to government. Of course, that is the goal to destroy the very fabric of our nation.. How do you change a society? Vladimir Lenin said, “Give me four years to teach children and the seeds I have sown will never be uprooted.” This is what is facing our children if we do not wake this nation up to the dangers of Common Core.
As per one Master Teacher who gave a presentation to Teachers said, “The teachers theme is to teach students that the Civic Mission of Schools are as guardians of Democracy and will promote a correlation between government and education. The key word here is Democracy. Communist nations are considered as democracies. The US is a democratic Republic. The collective is about “democracy” or “social justice, economic justice and redistribution, which is another way of saying Tyranny and Government Control.
They will teach a more Statist oriented education. As an example, for English Literature, required reading will be “informational texts” such as the EPA bills and regulations, the Affordable Healthcare Act etc. to promote the correlation of government and education. This is to teach children from an early age that they should look to “Big Brother” for their needs. Actual literature as we were taught will only be allowed if the States choose to implement under the provision that they can input 15% of the curriculum. Common Core is a copyrighted curriculum standard and cannot be changed or altered. It must be taught as is. They tell you that the States will be able to implement their own curriculum standards but that is a lie. Only 15% input is permitted.
This same MT discussed a parallel writing technique where students are encouraged to create division and class warfare in the classroom. Students love to argue in everything and to encourage this will enhance their ‘creative “ side; to be angry with parents; to encourage them and give them permission to be rude and nasty. Kids will love it and it will teach them “oppositional behavior”. It is all sick and designed to destroy the family unit.
Sher: Christina, how does Common Core ultimately tie into the Agenda 21 removal of all private property from human populations and the planned culling of multiple millions of us as Obama’s friend Bill Ayers suggested when he said in the 1970s that at least 25,000,000 Americans–alone–would have to be exterminated?
Christina: First of all, for those that are not familiar with Agenda 21, it is actually called the United Nations Agenda for the 21st Century. President H.W. Bush initially brought the UN Agenda into the US. He was the one that initially spoke those now infamous words, “New World Order.” The UN Treaty for this was never ratified by Congress so in 1993, President Bill Clinton signed an Executive Order creating the President’s Council on Sustainability Development (Sustainable America) dropped the UN Agenda into this order, thus incorporating Agenda 21 into our country and implementing a UN driven agenda through regulations and legislation bypassing Congress and the ratification of the UN treaty. Another deception foisted onto the American people!
UNESCO is the educational and sustainable division of the United Nations. They are tasked to facilitate partnerships through a work program approved by the United Nations Council on Sustainable Development. In 2004, Bill Gates signed an agreement with UNESCO to further their agenda here in the US and globally. Common Core Educational Standards originate from UNESCO and are being implemented and promoted by the Progressive left in the US.
To tie Agenda 21 Sustainability movement into Common Core one has but to look at excerpts of the UNESCO Mission Statement: “It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.”
“There are thus two tasks for the Mass Media division of UNESCO, the one general, the other special. The special one is to enlist the press and the radio and the cinema to the fullest extent in the service of education, of science and learning, of art and culture. The general one is to see that these agencies are used to promote the growth of the “common outlook” shared by all nations and cultures.
Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, thought the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished”…written by Johann Gottlieb Fichte, he goes on to state: “The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than a generation will be able to control its “subjects” securely without the need of armies or policemen.”
Julian Huxley, a major player for UNESCO in 1945, served as its first Director. Huxley was also the VP of the Eugenics (meaning: a science that deals with the improvement of hereditary qualities in a series of generation of a race or breed, esp, by control of human mating and reproduction) Society from 1937 thru 1944. In 1947, he wrote: “Thus even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may become thinkable.”
From reading these quotes and excerpts, we can see how Common Core ties into Agenda 21’s global goals for the New World Order. Control!! Control!!
The ultimate goal of UNESCO, via the nationalization of our education system is to create “ good global, sustainable citizens who will be “managed” by a Global Government. The ultimate goal is to have a “managed citizenry”, a managed economy, and a managed environment once again returning to Mother Earth worship.
This is where eugenics and William (Bill) Ayers, ObamaCare, the Nationalization of our Economy, Energy, Health and Education systems comes into play.. Ayers is a major driver behind Common Core and sadly is a very radical Professor today that has had much influence on students thinking … He and other key players including the Clinton’s, Bushes’, Gore, Gates, Soros, Rockefeller, Warren Buffet, Obama and his minions, etc.. Understand that one cannot “manage” most of adult America today. The ultimate goal of these radicals from the UN, the US and other nations is to set up Internment or Re-education camps for those that will not comply with their sick agenda.. You either are “retrained” or you will have to be eliminated.
The Healthcare Bill will take care of the “useless” senior population via “managed care”. The government will have free reign with the youth.. You cannot change a nation unless you change how it thinks and operates…Hence, the lesson learned from Lenin, Stalin, Marx et al, “get the children and you change generations”… I know this sounds insane, but sadly, it is a reality we are facing today.. Don’t take my word for it, do your research.. Just go to the United Nations and look at Agenda 21… do your own homework. Research the Sustainability Movement. There is no shortage of information available. This is a very real Agenda that is being thrust onto citizens here in America and across the globe.. The US stands in the way of ultimate implementation. Hence George Soros’s, Open Society, states: “we must have a managed decline of America in order to bring about the New World Order”… Do your research everyone.. This is very real and is happening at record speed.. The target is the US and our children. Hence the implementation of Common Core to achieve the mission goals of UNESCO stated above.
Agenda 21 is the UN’s vision for a centrally managed global society.. Agenda 21 has a plan for how you will live (as per Marx, “private property ownership must be eliminated”) where you will live (stack and pack communities; walkable communities, livable communities; “managed communities “under the guise of “sustainable and/or “smart growth”. Even the American Planning Assoc. is complicit in helping to implement this agenda via local planning, zoning, etc. in conjunction with ICLEI, another UN agency. Hence the removal of personal/private property via regulations).. how you commute (high speed rail and public transportation—cars a thing of the past); what you will eat (genetically modified foods –another unholy alliance with Monsanto and Archer Daniel Midland and others), and what you will learn or be taught (BINGO, COMMON CORE!).. And, even “who your God will be” –social justice anyone”…… When fully implemented, “Agenda 21 will have government involved in every aspect of life for every human on earth from cradle to grave.”
Global Warming was the vehicle invented to drive this Sustainable Agenda from the UN. Read, “Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to Save our Planet.. The goal is to save “Mother Earth.”
Quote from the Club of Rome (Gro Harlem Bruntland –previous President of Norway, the Bruntland Commission and all members of Club of Rome are huge supporter of eugenics. She worked with Al Gore on Climate Change Agenda) Indeed, the Rockefeller Foundation had population control, as it’s founding principle –all part of UN A-21.
One quote: “Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by ever person on earth.. it calls for specific changes in the activities of all people. It will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced—an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources.. The shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision making at every level.”
One last quote from Club of Rome: “the common enemy of humanity is man…in searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.. All these dangers are callused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.. The real enemy then, is humanity itself…”
These are not my words but the actual words and quotes from the sources themselves. We don’t have to speculate; we have but to read their words…Research for yourself. It is not difficult to see what their agenda is and how important it is for the people of this nation to wake up to the dangers facing our children and us.
I could go on and on about this, but I think you get the idea. If you go back over this article, based on the above from UNESCO and the UN Agenda 21 goals, you will be able to readily see how Common Core ties into A-21/UNESCO’s ultimate goals and visions.. Controlled Education Curriculum; Data Mining; Master Teachers, technology to monitor children et al… Connect the dots for yourself.. It is not a “warm and fuzzy” agenda…. Not difficult to connect the dots.. It is being thrust on America via lies and deception by this Government to serve their global, utopian agenda of a One World Order.
Sher: What can people do to stop this insidious onslaught and destruction of our children?
Christina: We have formed a national Coalition called CURE, Citizens United for Responsible Education. They can go to our website or contact me directly and we can hook them up to people in their respective states so they can get involved. I have only scratched the surface here today. I encourage everyone to research Common Core and Agenda 21 as they are part and parcel of each other.. Find out what is happening in your states. Join our coalition.. I strongly encourage parents to get their children out of the Public Education system into Christian Schools, private schools or homeschooling.. be sure to ask if they are implementing Common Core and not Charter Schools either. They are involved with CC as they are a public/pvt. funded partnership. We also have Gulen Charter Schools of which Gulen supports CC…There are numerous homeschooling Associations and organizations to research.. Be wary of Sylvan Learning Centers as their National Headquarters were contacted by our organization and found that they are complicit to Common Core curriculum standards. Be sure to ask!! We are working on developing alternatives for parents as they struggle to navigate this new paradigm,
Sher: Thanks so much for your insight, your excellent work and your time, Christina. To which website can people go to keep updated on all you and others are doing to stop Common Core? Christina: Our website is: www.natcore.org (Scheduled to go “live” by 5-12-2013) or one can reach me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
