I have had a number of individuals send me e-mail informing me that they will never read this web site again because I have dared to criticize George Bush, Jr. I have replied that my blind loyalty is not to any political figure or party, but rather to God, flag and this Republic. If any "elected" public servant steps out of line, they should be held accountable.
This is what America has always stood for and I won't shut up just because some person out there is afraid to face up to the sad truth about this current President. Mr. Bush has stacked his cabinet with some of the biggest elitists and globalists ever to take the public stage. What matters is what's right for this nation as a whole, not who is right and grabs the headlines.
A new book has just been released that will make staunch Bush supporters angry. Patrick Henry said that Americans are apt to close their eyes to a painful truth. Bush supporters, like the Clinton supporters and apologists, really don't want the truth because they can't handle the truth. Like Clinton supporters, Bush supporters and apologists have put all their faith and trust into a man who doesn't deserve it, no how, no way.
Yes, this nation had more than enough of Billy Clinton. Al Gore would have just been more open about the agenda than the current occupant of the White House. Out of desperation and to "keep the GOP in power at any cost," millions of Republicans would rather eat nails than acknowledge the truth that's right in front of their eyes.
It amazes me how the people of this nation no longer care about the truth and how closed minded they have become to protect political turf. It bodes ill for America and it's quite sad to me. How on earth did things ever get discovered over the millenniums if everyone automatically rejected any information because it disagreed with what they were told or the promises made by some politician?
Goodness, I'm surprised anything has gotten done, but things are different now. America is different. She is no longer the self-determined, self-reliant, reject big central government nation of people. Corruption is now "just doing business," and the worst behavior is "a personal problem." The U.S. Constitution takes a back seat to jobs, and few want the truth.
Time Bomb is so forceful, the author won't even put her name on the book. Yes, she has written several others and I've known her for about six or so years. Her work is meticulous and thoroughly researched. Time Bomb is not some regurgitated opinion book, it's based on hard facts and it should scare the holy heck out of anyone who takes the time to read it. This author is terrified for her life because this book could bring down the Bush administration and expose him for the globalist he is now and always has been. That's why she could not put her name on this book as the author. Her fear is real.
I would ask supporters of Mr. Bush to read this book. Read the facts. Read the words of those who are wolves in a pasture of sheep. Their words don't lie and neither do their actions.
Is it not better to get both sides of the story in order to make informed decisions?
Is it better for you and our Republic to ignore the warning signs and just continue to rah-rah, while our nation is being programmed for doom?
Time Bomb isn't like other books on the NWO. This book should be given to anyone who thinks Mr. Bush and his globalist cabinet are the greatest thing since night baseball. They aren't. They represent the greatest danger this country has ever faced. 9-11, massive illegal immigration, uncontrolled legal immigration throwing freebies to those who are not citizens and on down the line. All important, but what makes people so complacent to all the aforementioned issues? Why are they buying into it? Time Bomb provides those answers as well as solutions.
This books should also be read by every American who belongs to the Democratic Party. This books is about the survival of America, not political parties. There is only one party in this country and that is the global party.Democrats throughout America were shamed (except the politicos in DC) by the cheap and tawdry behavior of Mr. Clinton regarding Monica Lewinsky. However, that behavior is meaningless if the grassroots folks out there would look at what he was really doing while in office: Selling out this country to the Masters of the World Order. Time is short and we need everyone to get the facts.
From the author:
Time Bomb provides overwhelming documentation and detailed facts about the criminal conspiracy, about the communitarian (Communist) program to achieve global control. Here are some of the key points:
- At the Sixth Party Congress held in Moscow in 1928, the Communists wrote and approved "The Program" to bring in the New World Order. The Programme of the Communist International called for a global environmental program and for the transformation of all people on earth to accept the new socio-political order. An omnipotent one-world hierarchy of regional governances would control virtually every aspect of human life on earth. All the world's inhabitants would live in a world without nations, a world without nationalities, a world without borders, and a world without competition.
- Vladimir Lenin said, "First we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. Then we will encircle the United States, which will be the last bastion of Capitalism. We shall not have to attack. It (the U.S.) Will fall like a ripe grapefruit into our hands." In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, Communists have sponsored "wars of national liberation." They "set up a timetable of conquest for the entire world" and have proceeded to take it country by country.
- Architects of the New World Order have sought to make countries economically interdependent by creating new political entities and regional organizations, such as the European Union (EU), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), finally merging them all into a global government, first under the United Nations, then under a hierarchy of regional governments.
- One of the Communists' first priorities was to change people's actual psychology. It was the mission of Psychopolitics to condition or prepare men for the loss of individuality and identity, for submergence into the collective, for total limitation of individual freedom and for blind devotion to the will of the ruling elite or nomenklatura. In their attempt to gain unlimited control of the masses, the Communists began deliberately and methodically to transform self- sufficient, independent individuals into selfless, obsequious members of local and global "communities."
They trained whole nations of people, including citizens of the Soviet Union and China, to regard individualism as an egregious sin, to stifle all personal aspects in others and in themselves, to fulfill their obligation to serve the community, and to cultivate a desire to strive, not for their own achievement, enjoyment, or material well-being, but for "the common good."
In short, the Communists worked to saturate the people with a spirit of community, i.e., a spirit of collectivism, and community values. This movement to build strong communities and to instill Communist values, to effect in whole populations the creation of a submissive, self-destructive slave mentality, and to secure and maintain dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of all human inhabitants of the world is now known as communitarianism.
- For decades, the Soviets and the U.S. ruling elite have worked to build a community system in America. Like preceding communitarian administrations, the Bush-Cheney Administration and its Communist allies promote communitarianism. The Communitarian (Communist) ruling elite has worked to transform your town (or city) into a Communist, Soviet- style "community." This books shows that it has established countless community programs and organizations and expanded community-building efforts in order to achieve its ultimate end: to control virtually every aspect of your life.
In its attempt to obliterate the American system, it has attacked principled individualism, individual initiative and enterprise, individual gain, private profit, personal success, and the pursuit of one's own happiness. At the same time, it has saturated Americans with community values, including: 1) a sense of community and a spirit of community life; 2) the suppression of one's own individuality, identity, and personality; 3) communistic virtue of altruistic selflessness; 4) the obligation to perform community service; 5) the duty to work for "the common good."
Communitarians seek to replace loyalty to self, family, church and nation with loyalty to the local and global communities and to the communitarian ruling elite. Many well-meaning people are being used to advance Communistic community-building efforts without realizing the significance of what they are doing.
- The global ruling elite seeks to link the communitarian and environmental movements. If it accomplishes its end --the imposition of global tyranny--its self-appointed, authoritarian role would be to plan and coordinate all aspects of community life: To define community needs (e.g., clean air and water, energy, and protection of all plants and animals); to allocate "rights" (bare subsistence); to assign community duties (vocations, civic activities, etc.); to implement binding decisions for the community; to use coercive force to achieve consensus, i.e., the use of prisons, community mental health centers and, eventually, political psychiatric institutions, slave labor camps, and executions without trial to impose discipline on community members who refuse to conform and obey.
- In totalitarian nations, the affluent lifestyle and aristocratic privileges of the parasitic ruling class are assured by the backbreaking toil of citizen slaves. The rulers are primarily interested in maximum expansion of their own power, keeping the people in line, and raising the productivity of workers. To achieve those ends, they use terrorism and the most savage, unrestrained, brutal use of force to invoke obedience.Terror and brute force are among the chief elements of the community system. Today, America has reached the stage where terror, brutality and force are being used with ever increasing frequency.
- These maniacs are bent on wiping out American civilization. In a deliberate attempt to degrade and corrupt Americans, communitarians have deluged the nation with drugs, pornography, denigrate fads, and occult crazes. Time Bomb shows how they have sought to attack the nuclear family, de-emphasize the value of marriage, infiltrate the churches, discredit the Bible, and destroy traditional values; how they promote permissive parenting and teach "the lack of control" of children at home; how they facilitated drug trafficking and the flow of drugs into this country; and how they seek to create in American youth a craving for drugs, sexual misbehavior, and drunkenness. Every possible method is being used to degrade the individual from an intelligent, thinking, spiritual being to a collective animal.
- To achieve their goals, communitarians have worked to gain control of the schools and teachers' associations, to put the Communist Party line in textbooks, to train children to reject the American view of man and life and to accept global government and the New World Order. By gaining control of newspapers, television, radio, films, publishing houses, and the Internet, by securing policy-making positions, by exercising dominating influence over editorial writing, they have spread false propaganda and disinformation, manipulated the thoughts and emotions of the people, and worked to indoctrinate them with the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist ideology.
- Communitarians are bent on replacing our constitutional republic with democracy. The Bush Administration has worked to build a strong democracy because it permits the gradual transition from capitalism into socialism and from socialism into Communism.
- To alienate and radicalize American youth, globalists have sought to discredit the U.S. Constitution, the Founding Fathers, and American institutions, traditions and beliefs.
Communist indoctrination brought Americans to accept the Marxist income tax, whose purpose is to wrest, by degrees, all capital from the owners of private property. The Federal Reserve System enabled global planners to gain monopolistic control over the American economy. They manipulate interest rates and the U.S. money supply to create inflation, wars, depressions, etc. In addition, they have used "free trade," governmental regulations, and other means to deliberately and methodically destroy the economy. By shifting manufacturing, fuel, and food production overseas they have made America dependent on its enemies for many vital products.
Time Bomb details the Clinton/Bush Administrations' deadly strategic measures to conquer America, which are nearly the same as their communitarian predecessors. You'll learn how communitarian political demagogues have worked to: reduce the people's standard of living to a "sustainable" level; capture both of the political parties in the United States; encourage a flood of Socialist and Communist immigrants, impede or prevent assimilation, promote diversity and multiculturalism [hedonism], create a huge voting bloc with no understanding of America's fundamental ideas (including freedom and individual rights), and accelerate the erosion of the American system; establish socialized medicine in America; use gun control laws to disarm civilians; promote a one-world government under the United Nations; help to create a UN military, a huge police machine, and an ideological apparatus to enforce global tyranny.
- You'll discover how the Clinton/Bush Administrations and their Communist allies have intensified their lying propaganda and disinformation campaigns in order to deceive the American people. Contrary to their claims that Communism is dead, the Soviet Union has not collapsed, and the KGB and the Soviet military are pushing full-tilt ahead to expand their power. In fact, the KGB is one of the deadliest and most ruthless organizations in the world.
Time Bomb details the Communist effort to build a gigantic KGB-FBI police machine and ideological apparatus. It shows that the Bush Administration has created strategic partnerships with Russia and Communist China and formed an international coalition to combat terrorism. This coalition includes Russia and Red China, which are Communist totalitarian police states and the sponsors of terrorism. Both of these nations are engaged in a massive military build-up to cow or intimidate the United States with the annihilating terrors of nuclear ballistic missiles, neutron bombs, biological and chemical weapons, and other weapons of mass destruction. At the same time our enemies seek to expand their power, the Bush Administration exalts NATO (a military affiliate of the KGB/Communist infested UN), pursues a policy of disarmament in the United States, and works to diminish U.S. military strength.
This book exposes the erroneous notions, beliefs, opinions, doctrines and theories being spread in our communitarian government-run schools and provides a full statement and defense of our original American system. It discusses in detail principled individualism andauthentic benevolence (which is totally different from altruistic community service). You'll learn about the American way of parenting, which gives parents the power to work virtual miracles and permits them to raise, happy, healthy, competent, confident children who love this country and who understand its meaning in history.
The Founding Fathers created a country of individual liberty. The United States of America was the first nation in the history of mankind to protect every individuals' unalienable rights - his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Free enterprise capitalism was the original Americansystem and way of life. This system recognizes and protects individual rights, including property rights. It permits each individual to plan and act according to his own plans. It is the only system that rigidly defines and limits the actions of the government and protects citizens from aspiring dictators. The American system, as created by the Founding Fathers, lasted for approximately a century.
The United States was not founded as a communitarian (Communist) nation, but as a Christian nation. The Founding Fathers acknowledged the existence of Almighty God and acknowledged his Divine Providence. The Founders were principled individualists who governed and sustained themselves according to the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments are the "precedent legal code upon which American Law and Civil government are based." "Biblical teachings inspired concepts of civil government that are contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States." (Congressional Record, February 2, 1983.)
Principled individualism is the original American moral code. Principled individualists govern and sustain themselves according to the Ten Commandments and cultivate personal virtues which decent, law-abiding Americans admire: personal initiative, honesty, integrity, productiveness, self-reliance, and authentic benevolence. Principled individualism is to pursue one's own happiness by growth and self-development, by individual initiative and enterprise, by productiveness and self-reliance - all these moral virtues that lead to personal success, self- respect, and mental well-being.
Principled individualists endeavor to gain intellectual training, develop their personal skills and capacities, and pursue their own chosen careers. They create their own private wealth, support their own lives, practice authentic benevolence, and they build a stable family life. A principled individualist who works to achieve his own happiness by using his mind to the fullest in the pursuit of his own chosen career, and his loyalty is not to a "community" and the communitarian ruling elite, but to self, family, church and nation.
Constitutional framer James Wilson, who was a brilliant scholar, expressed his profound belief "that all power is derived from the people --that their happiness is the end of government." The Ten Commandments and other Christian principles and values strengthen people, make them free and independent individuals, and prepare them for a self-disciplined, productive, and happy life. Such individuals value intellectual training, disciplined thinking, and independent thought, which are essential for progress and survival of our American civilization.
Our original American system --free enterprise capitalism and principled individualism -- is the only system that works. It was founded on Biblical principles: personal integrity, diligence, productive work, a happy, stable family, a conviction that God governs the affairs of men. It creates an environment in which men are rewarded for exercising good judgment, self-discipline, personal initiative and enterprise. It encourages thrift, careful planning and provision for future needs.
It allows men to satisfy their physical and spiritual needs, e.g., the right to earn and control one's own private property and support one's own life; the right to protection in convictions of conscience and religion; the right to freedom of speech; the right to have a voice in determining political matters; and the opportunity to exercise one's creativity. It eliminates the creation of classes or castes by permitting all citizens to engage in private free enterprise and to make a profit. The ingenuity, inventiveness, and intellectual independence of the people give rise to a spectacular scientific and technological achievements. In such a society, the whole population enjoys a constantly rising standard of living.
This book shows how we can take back our culture and our country. It offers principles and values, objectives and goals, strategies and tactics that will change the course of this nation.
This is the 21st century, the new era of individual freedom. The facts show that America's political options all lie within an ideological framework of free enterprise capitalism and principled individualism. America is a Christian nation" We should not be afraid of greatness, we should not be afraid to fight for what is moral, for what is honorable, for what is right.
We must fight for the United States of America! We must fight for a republic of laws patterned after those given by the Eternal Lawgiver! Fight "by all your hopes in life or death, not only for yourselves but for all ages," for the Americanview of man and life, for the American system that allows the sanctity of human life and recognizes and protects the unalienable rights of man--rights that are derived from God.
Let us choose to heed those impassioned words of a true American patriot: "Were my soul trembling on the verge of eternity, my hand freezing in death, I would still implore you to remember this truth God has given America to be free."

A couple of days ago I posted a piece on Bush's economic stimulus farce:
Here's a follow up to what I covered in that article about our jobs being wholesaled off U.S. soil via "free trade." There's nothing "free" about free trade. It spells the death of our economy once and for all and puts us at the mercy of our mortal enemies (Communist China) to provide basic needs that we once produced here at home.

Bush Touts Foreign Trade
"New Orleans--Surrounded by the longshoremen of one of America's busiest ports, President Bush expressed new worries about unemployment Tuesday and prescribed a regimen of aggressive foreign trade to expand job opportunities and life the nation['s sagging economy.
"I'm worried about the loss of jobs," he said, telling the workers - who needed little convincing - "if you trade more, there are more jobs available for hard-working Americans."
"In courting public support for a bill pending in the Senate that would grant him added leeway to negotiate trade pacts, Bush is doing what his two immediate predecessors also did: Remind workers in the industrial and agricultural heartlands that millions of jobs rely on open trade, even as cheaper manufacturing costs in distant lands may siphon some employment away from the United States.
"It is issue of growing concern as the administration pushes for the expanded authority to negotiate trade agreements at a time when unemployment in the United States is at a six-year high."
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
How despicable, Mr. Bush. NAFTA., GATT and many of the 2200 treaties under the United Nothing [UN] have gutted and almost completely destroyed America's ag, manufacturing and agricultural base. "Siphoning employment away from the United States?" My, God, those words don't even come close to the destruction of our job base via "free trade." Those longshoremen should have booed Bush right back to Air Force One. Sadly, too many hard working Americans are now so desperate to keep their jobs, they'll believe anything coming out of Bush's mouth.

Ignoring the words of those wise Founding Fathers, Americans are destroying America:
Back in 1848, Karl Marx, the father of Communism said:
"Free trade breaks up old nationalities...In a word, the free trade system hastens the social revolution.
Gentlemen, I am in favor of free trade"!
"I shall ways take a peculiar pleasure in giving every proper encouragement in my power to
the manufacturers of my country." President George Washington, 1789.
"He, therefore, who is now against domestic manufacture, must be for reducing us either to
dependence on that foreign nation, or to be clothed in skins, and to live like beasts in dens
and caverns. I am not one of these." President Thomas Jefferson, 1815.
"The measure of the wealth of a nation is indicated by the measure of its protection of its industry;
the measure of the poverty of a nation is marked by the degree in which it neglects and abandons
the care of its own industry, leaving it exposed to the action of foreign powers."
Congressman Henry Clay, 1824.
"If we buy a steel rail from England, we have the rail and they have the money. But if we buy it
from ourselves, we have both the rail and the money." President Abraham Lincoln, 1864.
"The global theory of free trade is siphoning off America's wealth and bringing her economy to
the level of others. The theory is displacing American workers who otherwise would be employed."
Senator George Malone, 1958.
President Andrew Jackson, said back in 1833:
"Tell them (the South Carolinians who wanted to nullify the Tariff Act of 1832) that I will
hang the first man of them I can get my hands on to the first tree I can find."

Thomas Jefferson to Joseph C. Cabell
2 Feb. 1816Writings 14:421--23
"No, my friend, the way to have good and safe government, is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent to. Let the national government be entrusted with the defence of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations; the State governments with the civil rights, laws, police, and administration of what concerns the State generally; the counties with the local concerns of the counties, and each ward direct the interests within itself.
"It is by dividing and subdividing these republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations, until it ends in the administration of every man's farm by himself; by placing under every one what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best. What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun?
"The generalizing and concentrating all cares and power into one body, no matter whether of the autocrats of Russia or France, or of the aristocrats of a Venetian senate. And I do believe that if the Almighty has not decreed that man shall never be free, (and it is a blasphemy to believe it,) that the secret will be found to be in the making himself the depository of the powers respecting himself, so far as he is competent to them, and delegating only what is beyond his competence by a synthetical process, to higher and higher orders of functionaries, so as to trust fewer and fewer powers in proportion as the trustees become more and more oligarchical. The elementary republics of the wards, the county republics, the State republics, and the republic of the Union, would form a gradation of authorities, standing each on the basis of law, holding every one its delegated share of powers, and constituting truly a system of fundamental balances and checks for the government.
"Where every man is a sharer in the direction of his ward-republic, or of some of the higher ones, and feels that he is a participator in the government of affairs, not merely at an election one day in the year, but every day; when there shall not be a man in the State who will not be a member of some one of its councils, great or small, he will let the heart be torn out of his body sooner than his power be wrested from him by a Caesar or a Bonaparte. How powerfully did we feel the energy of this organization in the case of embargo? I felt the foundations of the government shaken under my feet by the New England townships.
"There was not an individual in their States whose body was not thrown with all its momentum into action; and although the whole of the other States were known to be in favor of the measure, yet the organization of this little selfish minority enabled it to overrule the Union. What would the unwieldy counties of the Middle, the South, and the West do? Call a county meeting, and the drunken loungers at and about the courthouses would have collected, the distances being too great for the good people and the industrious generally to attend.
"The character of those who really met would have been the measure of the weight they would have had in the scale of public opinion. As Cato, then, concluded every speech with the words, "Carthago delenda est," so do I every opinion, with the injunction, "divide the counties into wards." Begin them only for a single purpose; they will soon show for what others they are the best instruments. God bless you, and all our rulers, and give them the wisdom, as I am sure they have the will, to fortify us against the degeneracy of our government, and the concentration of all its powers in the hands of the one, the few, the well-born or the many."

Home Sweet School
The new home schoolers aren't hermits. They are diverse parents who are getting results and putting the heat on public schools
By John Cloud and Jodie Morse
"Earlier this month, J.C. Penney learned the hard way just how powerful the home-schooling movement has become. Penney's had recently started selling a T shirt that wickedly crystallized many people's assumptions about the movement: home skooled, giggles the shirt, which also depicts a trailer home. The folks at Penney's say they meant no harm they didn't even design the T, which had become popular in other stores first. But they yanked it from the shelves Aug. 8 after enraged missives poured in from home-schooling families, some of whom threatened a boycott.
"Penney's should have known better. Over the past decade, the ranks of families home schooling have grown dramatically. According to a new federal report, at least 850,000 students were learning at home in 1999, the most recent year studied; some experts believe the figure is actually twice that. As recently as 1994, the government estimated the number at just 345,000. True, even the largest estimates still put the home schooled at only 4% of the total K-12 population but that would mean more kids learn at home than attend all the public schools in Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming combined.
"While politicians from Washington on down to your school board have been warring over charter schools and vouchers in recent years, home schooling has quietly outpaced both of those more attention-getting reforms (only half a million kids are in charter schools, and just 65,000 receive vouchers). In many ways, in fact, home schooling has become a threat to the very notion of public education. In some school districts, so many parents are pulling their children out to teach them at home that the districts are bleeding millions of dollars in per-pupil funding. Aside from money, the drain of families is eroding something more precious: public confidence in the schools.
"...Home schooling forsakes all that by defining education not as the pursuit of an entire community but as the work of one family and its chosen circle. Which can be great. Despite some drawbacks, there are signs that home-schooling parents are doing a better job than public schools at teaching their kids. But as the number of kids learning at home grows, we should pause to wonder: Better at teaching them what? Home schooling may turn out better students, but does it create better citizens?
"To see how home schooling threatens public schools, look at Maricopa County, Ariz. The county has approximately 7,000 home-schooled students. That's only 1.4% of school-age kids, but it means $35 million less for the county in per-pupil funding. The state of Florida has 41,128 children (1.7%) learning at home this year, up from 10,039 in the 1991-92 school year; those kids represent a loss of nearly $130 million from school budgets in that state.
"Of course the schools have fewer children to teach, so it makes sense that they wouldn't get as much money, but the districts lose much more than cash. "Home schooling is a social threat to public education," says Chris Lubienski, who teaches at Iowa State University's college of education. "It is taking some of the most affluent and articulate parents out of the system. These are the parents who know how to get things done with administrators."
"To be sure, many public schools and their baleful unions and wretched bureaucrats, their rigid rules and we-know-best manner have done a lot to hurt themselves. But as the most committed parents leave, the schools may falter more, giving the larger community yet another reason to fret over their condition. "A third of our support for schools comes from property taxes," says Ray Simon, director of the Arkansas department of education.
"If a large number of a community's parents do not fully believe in the school system, it gets more difficult to pass those property taxes. And that directly impacts the schools' ability to operate." Says Kellar Noggle, executive director of the Arkansas Association of Educational Administrators: "We still have 440,000 kids in public schools, and some 12,000 [in home schooling] is a small number. But those 12,000 have parents and grandparents. Sure, it erodes public support."
"But for now, home schooling is still growing at about 11% a year, and it's no longer confined to a conservative fringe that never believed in the idea of public education anyway. "Very different people are entering home schooling than did 20 years back," says Mitchell Stevens, author of Kingdom of Children, a history of home schooling to be published next month by Princeton University Press.
"According to the Federal Government, up to three-quarters of the families that home school today say they do so primarily because, like so many of us, they are worried about the quality of their children's education. A recent report by the state of Florida found that just a quarter of families in that state practice home schooling for religious reasons. The new home schoolers haven't completely given up on public education, at least not the idea of it. "The problem is that schools have abandoned their mission," says Luigi Manca, a communications professor at Benedictine University in Lisle, Ill., who home schools his daughter Nora, 17. "They've forgotten about educating."

The article above is quite lengthy. See, it's really about money and indoctrination. I say let parents empty the sewers they call public education and let the buildings sit empty except for the illegals. The Federal Department of Socialist Education is unconstitutional, period. Look at the mess education has become in America since it was made a cabinet. Thank you, Jimmy Caartah!

Students Silenced While Singing National Anthem

"Washington, DC - A group of high school students visiting DC got more then they bargained for when they stopped at a national monument last month. The students were the winners of a nationwide patriotic essay contest.
"It all happened at the Jefferson Memorial, a monument to one of our founding fathers. The award-winning group of high school students became so filled with patriotic pride, they spontaneously burst into singing the National Anthem.
"A Park Ranger asked them to stop because according to a federal regulation, any time a group of 26 people an audience, it is considered a demonstration, which requires a permit.
"The students were the winners of the VFW sponsored essay contest, ironically entitled: What Price Freedom?
"I wish I could have been there. I'd have sung with them," said Cmdr. John Gwizdak, Veteran of Foreign Wars. The Commander in Chief of the 2.7 million member VFW was so outraged he demanded an apology.
"It sends the chills up and down your spine and all of a sudden, here we go, putting them down, making them feel ashamed of being a part of this country," said Gwizdak."

Feds Fuel Anti-Christian Bigotry in Schoolchildren

"The practice of Hitler, Stalin and every other tyrant of encouraging children to "inform" on their parents is quietly slipping into the United States.
"H.R. 1, the education bill that recently passed the House, promotes a host of left-wing agenda items, many of which NewsMax.com described in an article May 17.
"What is equally disappointing to cultural conservatives is what the measure does NOT do. It does nothing to eradicate federally sponsored anti-Christian bigotry. That program is left over from the Clinton administration. Conservatives are urging the Bush administration to move against it.
Urging Children to Spy on Parents
"Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) cites a Justice Department Web page featured in the Clinton years that admonished children to monitor their homes for "bigotry" and to report infractions to teachers and others.
"The program was begun during the publicity on violent crimes in schools against minorities, which sparked a congressional stampede to promote so-called "crime prevention" programs.
"TVC says the program goes way beyond preventing any crimes.
"By "labeling Christianity as the root of violence," warns the Washington-based values organization, "the federal government has attacked the very foundation of decency"
"Hate prevention" training turns out to be little more than what Traditional Values calls "indoctrination of a liberal, anti-Christian, pro-homosexual political view." The goal is to teach children that all "lifestyles" are equally acceptable and that believing otherwise is "the root of hate."
"TVC cites another chapter in the federally supported curriculum that implies that those who speak out against the promotion of the organized homosexual agenda are Nazis.
"One illustration of anti-Christian bias in the curriculum is the story of a white supremacist youth who attended a Baptist and a Pentecostal Church and was taught the "battle of Armageddon would be a race war."
"The manual "Preventing Youth Crimes" recommends a "partnering" with homosexual advocacy groups.
"What upsets the TVC is that the current education bill has done nothing to eliminate what the group calls "anti-Christian bigotry."
"Of course, it would be politically difficult for President Bush to veto legislation that has been touted as a cornerstone of his own agenda. But TVC says the so-called "crime prevention" section is "a very real step toward the regulating of speech within the schools, homes, and the workplace." That is why Lafferty thinks the White House may the position of vetoing his own bill or allowing these dangerous provisions to survive.
"The cultural Marxist ethic of "political correctness" that has manifested itself on college campuses with a vengeance in recent years now is being thrust on younger children."

From: Ginny Baker
May I offer you three articles about education that I think you will like?
One is by me: "Public Schools, Home Schools, and Private Schools" is highly documented and explains in detail the history, using federal legislative references, US Supreme Court opinions, and educators' quotes, of how the feds planned and got control of the schools. Of you choose to post it, you have my permission to do so, as does anyone else who wishes to post or distribute. It has already appeared on several web sites, but EducationNews was the first to post it:
The other two shorter articles bring the history up to date and are about President Bush's current proposals (found in HR1 and S1) to complete the federalization of education with the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) test as the catalyst. These are by Julie Quist, Vice President of the Maple River Education Coalition PAC, 1402 Concordia Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55104, 651-646-0646. You probably would want to contact her if you wish to post these two on your web page:
"The Illusion of Private and Homeschool Protection Under HR1"
" The NAEP Test"
(This one on the NAEP is also posted on today's educationnews.org .)
Thank you for your excellent research and work.

From Face Scan Cameras to Thumbscanners: Biometric Technology is the Police State System for Total Control
"Austin, TX - From fans at the Superbowl having their faces scanned to kids thumbscanning to purchase lunches in the school cafeteria, Americans are being conditioned to give up their privacy and independence in exchange for the "safety" of biometrics technologies.
"Police departments across the country are debating the implementation of invasive and unconstitutional Big Brother biometrics "for our safety and convenience," or, in the case of Ybor, Florida they have already instated and misused faces scanning cameras to victimize an innocent man.
"Across the US and the world, from Odessa, Texas to Beijing, China populations are being forced to accept the incredibly invasive technology of biometrics. Right out of the gates biometrics is being used only in Big Brother type surveillance monitoring and tracking efforts. Just imagine elementary school children in Pennsylvania who attend the Lakeside school district classes being forced to digitally fingerprint to obtain their lunches. We're talking about everybody, all the children, no cash allowed!
"Two things are happening here: The children are being trained to accept a cashless society where all of their transactions are recorded and, more importantly, they are being put into Federal and State databases. In the past, only criminals were fingerprinted.
"You see, we're all being treated as if we're guilty until proven innocent.
"In fact, Detective Todd who runs the biometric cameras in Tampa, Florida stated to the press, "I don't see the big problem with it if you don't have anything to hide." Yes, this was the mantra of Nazi Germany: "You are free to go once we see your papers." Imagine what Hitler would have done with this Orwellian tool which is already being used in England to deny people to stores and sports arenas. ....
"But where are they getting the databases to match the faces and fingerprints with names and Social Security numbers? That's right: they got them from States' drivers' license facilities. In the past eight years, State DMV's in 38 States have been collecting digital photos, thumbprints and signatures. And now, Washington DC's Mayor has announced that all the school children will be face scanned, thumbprinted and then loaded into the drivers' license database.
"In one fell swoop they have put the cashless society surveillance grid in place, and they're training the children that cash will no longer get them a hamburger."

BRAVE NEW SCHOOLS
Islam studies required in California district Course has 7th-graders memorizing Koran verses, praying to Allah
"In the wake of Sept. 11, an increasing number of California public school students must attend an intensive three-week course on Islam, reports ASSIST News Service.
"The course mandates that seventh-graders learn the tenets of Islam, study the important figures of the faith, wear a robe, adopt a Muslim name and stage their own jihad. Adding to this apparent hypocrisy, reports ANS, students must memorize many verses in the Koran, are taught to pray "in the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful" and are instructed to chant, "Praise to Allah, Lord of Creation."
"We could never teach Christianity like this," one outraged parent told ANS.
"Elizabeth Christina Lemings, a teacher in the Byron, Calif., Union School District, was unaware of the course until her seventh-grade son brought home the handouts. Obtained by ANS, the handouts include a history of Islam and the life of Mohammad, its founder. There are 25 Islamic terms that must be memorized, six Islamic (Arabic) phrases, 20 Islamic proverbs to learn along with the Five Pillars of Faith and 10 key Islamic prophets and disciples to be studied.
"We can't even mention the name of Jesus in the public schools," Lemings laments, "but ... they teach Islam as the true religion, and students are taught about Islam and how to pray to Allah. Can you imagine the barrage of lawsuits and problems we would have from the ACLU if Christianity were taught in the public schools, and if we tried to teach about the contributions of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and the Apostle Paul? But when it comes to furthering the Islamic religion in the public schools, there is not one word from the ACLU, People for the American Way or anybody else. This is hypocrisy."
"ANS reports that students are to pretend that they are Muslims, wear Muslim clothing to school, stage their own jihad via a dice game and pick out a Muslim name (to replace their own) from a list of 30.
"When asked what they thought about the course, students described it as "fun," while others described Islam as "a pretty culture." Joseph Lemings, 12, told ANS, "the jihad was like playing a video game."
"The "fun" description disturbs Elizabeth Lemings, who sees the course as a tool, not only to engender sympathy and support for the Muslim cause, but for recruitment.
"This is not just a class of history of examining culture," she said. "This course is entirely too specific. It is more about indoctrination."
"Asked if there was any response from parents about the Islam course, Castro told ANS, "Oh, a couple of parents called to express concerns, three to be exact."

Pledge Divides School's Parents
By Neil Offen
Sep 26, 2001
"CHAPEL HILL -- A number of parents at a local elementary school are angry their children can't begin the school day by reciting in unison the Pledge of Allegiance.
"The school's principal says that building policy is not to recite the pledge school wide at the beginning of the day and that patriotism is not measured by rote recitation.
"The controversy in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the nation has split McDougle Elementary down a patriotic divide, with parents on both sides of the issue.
"Some of the parents say reciting the pledge is an essential part of character education and part of the school's responsibility to inculcate love of country. Other parents and administrators say that even optional recitation of the pledge is coercive and an unnecessary litmus test for patriotism."

Madison School Board Removes Pledge Ban
One week after banning pledge in schools, 6-1 vote clears way for morning patriotism
By Eileen Boyce, City/county Editor
"In a 6-1 vote early Tuesday morning, the Madison school board removed a one-week old ban on the Pledge of Allegiance.
"The vote came after over 1,200 people gathered Monday night at the a decision by the board last week to ban the Pledge of Allegiance
"High emotions, anger, concern and frustration drove statements on both sides of the debate that ran into early Tuesday morning.
"The stage for heated debate was set when those opposing the board's ban abruptly stood and began reciting the Pledge of Allegiance while those supporting the school board's decision remained seated.
"Board members Shwaw Vang and Bill Keys, who voted for the ban, remained seated during the unplanned pledge, while the other five board members joined in the recitation.
"Vang later recited the pledge before the board heard speakers, and many in the auditorium joined him.
"Those opposing the board, wanting the pledge to remain in Madison schools, felt the pledge is one honoring the nation, symbolizing the freedom to choose, a right upon which the U.S. was based. Those supporting the board and its decision to accommodate those students not wanting to participate in the recitation acknowledged that protecting students' right to choose clearly falls under "liberty and justice for all," as stated in the pledge.
"Students K-12 were the first speakers to voice their opinions on the appropriate stance of the pledge.
"Most student speakers opposed the board's policy and wanted to keep the pledge of allegiance in their schools.
"One sophomore from Madison West High School said removing the pledge was a sign of disrespect.
"Taking [the pledge] away is disrespectful to ourselves and our country," he said.
"However, some students disagreed.
"Lianna Prescott, a senior at Memorial, said she was worried students were not being allowed a choice in the matter.
"When 'under God' was added in 1954, I feel I've had to choose between both the U.S. and God or none," Prescott said. (Devvy's note: How old was Ms. Prescott in 1954 if she's a senior in 2001? See how successful indoctrination is with the young? They parrot what they hear on the boob tube and from "school books." Sad.)
"Many supporting the board's policy felt the same sentiment, that Madison students are forced to either believe in a country ruled under God, or not follow one at all.
"Madison resident Sheila Crowley voiced this opinion of supposed supremacy.
"Tonight you have seen veiled racism, veiled homophobia," she said.
(Devvy's note: racism? Homophobia? What on God's green earth does that have to do with saying the pledge of allegiance to your own country?)
"However, others said the pledge should never have been tampered with.
"We are not forcing patriotism and not endorsing any religion," Madison resident Monty Clifcorn said. "The United States of America and God are inseparable."
"Rumors of recalling board member Carol Carstensen and all members."

Schools Dampen Holiday Spirit
By Joyce Howard Price
The Washington Times
"Christmas is an unwelcome holiday in many public schools this year.
"A Frederick County school employee was told by an administrator that employees out Christmas cards in the school because cards with a Christian message "may not be a legally protected right on a public school
"A fourth-grader in Ephrata, Pa., was prohibited from handing out religious Christmas cards to classmates.
"Two middle school students in Rochester, Minn., were disciplined for wearing red and green scarves in a Christmas skit and for ending the skit by saying, "We hope you all have a merry Christmas."
"Two ninth-graders in Plymouth, Mass., were told they could not create Christmas cards that say "Merry Christmas" or depict a nativity scene.
"A teacher in Plymouth, Ill., was warned by her principal not to read a book about Christmas to her second-grade students. The book was in the school's library.
"The superintendent of the Silverton, Ore., school district had students remove all "religious" holiday decorations from their lockers but allowed secular decorations.
"The county school board in Covington, Ga., deleted the word "Christmas" from the school calendar after the American Civil Liberties Union threatened legal action.
"Meanwhile, the Catholic League the nation's largest Catholic civil rights organization is protesting a policy in New York public schools that allows the display of the Jewish menorah and the Muslim star and crescent, but not the Christian nativity.
"Problems arose when the league received a copy of a memo that Fran Levy, principal of the Thomas Jefferson Magnet School of Humanities in Flushing, N.Y., issued teachers on Nov. 30.
"In the memo, Miss Levy urged teachers to "bring in Muslim, Kwanzaa, and Jewish secular symbols."

But it's okay to force the teaching of Islam in California schools? And, speaking of Kwanzaa, how many of you know the factual truth about that so-called religion?

Did you have a happy Kwanzaa?
by Joe Farah
"I'm a little late in asking, forgive me.
"But, did you have a happy Kwanzaa?
"I know the celebration officially ended 10 days ago, but the news has kept me busy until now.
"President Bush was quicker to the trigger than I was.
"Back on Dec. 20 a full six days before onset of this very spiritual weeklong rite he sent "warm greetings to all who are celebrating Kwanzaa." It gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling all over even though I don't personally celebrate this sacred event.
"Why did Bush issue a proclamation on Kwanzaa? Well, he explained that this important holiday was established in 1966 as an African-American celebration of "family, community and culture. The seven-day observance, beginning Dec. 26 and ending Jan.1, serves as a special time to recognize and reaffirm the Nguzo Saba, or Seven Principles, of African culture. These are unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith."
"Bush continued: "Kwanzaa provides an regardless of their religious background or faith, to come together and to show reverence for their Creator and creation, to commemorate the past, to recommit to high ideals, and to celebrate the good life. These life-affirming traditions take on particular resonance this year, as the United States and the world face new challenges to peace. As individuals, families and communities take part in this celebration of unity and enduring values, I extend best wishes to people throughout the globe for a wonderful and memorable Kwanzaa."
"Touching, moving, multi-cultural.
"Bush was correct in pointing out that this new high holy day is a very recent invention. There are few holidays we can actually attribute to one man's vision. Kwanzaa is such a holiday coined by Ron Karenga in 1966.
"Who was Ron Karenga?
"Glad you asked.
"He is a convicted felon sentenced five years after inventing Kwanzaa for torturing two black women by whipping them with electrical cords and beating them with a karate baton after stripping them naked. He placed in the mouth of one of the victims a hot soldering iron, also scarring her face with the device. He put one of her big toes in a vise, and detergent and running water in both of their mouths.
"But that wasn't the beginning of the bizarre and violent behavior of Karenga, the patron saint of Kwanzaa not by a long shot.
"Just about the time he was dreaming up this new holiday, he was also inventing a new political movement on the campus of UCLA. That movement was called "black cultural nationalism." His group was called United Slaves. And it was defined mainly by violent confrontations with the Black Panthers at UCLA. Two of his followers shot dead two members of the Panthers in 1969.
"But no sooner did Karenga get out of prison on the torture charges in 1975 than all was forgotten about his criminal and violent past. He was proclaimed Saint Karenga. Four years later, he was running the Black Studies Department at California State University in Long Beach.
"How did he get that job in academia with his record?
"Glad you asked again.
"Paul Mulshine, who has done an admirable job of chronicling Karenga's history for FrontPagemag.com, has a theory.
"Karenga had a jailhouse conversion.
"No, he did not become a born-again Christian. He did not renounce violence. He did not even repudiate his past. But he did become a Marxist."
"And, while becoming a Christian might have disqualified him for a role in the world of the modern U.S. university, a conversion to Marxism was perceived as a sign of rehabilitation. The one-time psychopath had seen the light."
"In conclusion, I hope this little cultural and history lesson helps you see the light about Kwanzaa. It's being taught to your kids in your government schools. It's become a commercial bonanza in black communities through the United States. And, now, even the president of the United States is praising it as a legitimate holiday."
"Good grief. What's wrong with America?"

I rest my case. Get a copy of Time Bomb. Give a copy to a friend, colleague or family member. Ask them if they will read it and give you their opinion. This is a good way to get someone to read a book because everyone is flattered when someone else values their opinion. This book is so important to understanding the bigger picture that most Americans, whose blind loyalty is to their political party, simply can't or won't see.
