“Literature without the context of history, is meaningless and history, without the context of Christianity, is incomprehensible.”
The above quote comes from an article written by the Frederick Douglass Foundation as part of the foundation’s response to the implementation of Common Core in many classrooms across the United States.
Before the 1920’s, American schools taught children to think critically and to interpret the present with knowledge of the past. In the 1920’s, the educational system started to slowly be transformed with a final goal being a global society and global government. The latest installment of this transformation, according to many conservative thinkers, is Common Core. Common Core is altering what aspects of history are being taught and changing the method of math and science instruction.
By cutting off connections to history, we will be raising a population completely detached from its culture. Common core has so convoluted math instruction that parents can’t even understand the methods their children are supposed to use. These changes put the parents on the sideline, and it can purposely create, in the child’s mind, the notion that their parents might not be so smart, thus making it less likely that they will later consider their parents’ wisdom useful in other subjects.

In 1992, President Bush signed the UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development policy at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Following that, President Clinton created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development to implement Agenda 21.
One group decidedly against Agenda 21 is The Post Sustainability Institute and spokespersons Rosa Koire and Kay Tokerud. Life-long Democrats, advocates for civil rights, private property rights, pro-choice and pro-gay marriage, in this case they are fighting against an issue that they feel transcends party lines. The linked article explains Agenda 21, the background of the sustainable movement, and explains where you may be experiencing Agenda 21 policies in your own town.
Governor Kasich got himself into a little hot water over comments he made about Obamacare and Medicaid expansion to the AP. Kasich told the AP that he did not think repeal was going to happen because “political or ideological” opposition does not “hold water” against “real improvements in peoples’ lives.” The AP thought Kasich meant opposition to Obamacare would not “hold water,” but Kasich’s staff claims the Governor meant opposition to Obamacare Medicaid expansion. The […]
The numbers aren’t looking good for Obamacare.
