Progressives" Common Core's Dirtiest Trick: Dividing Pare...

(progressives) have always been interested in taking the family down.The collective is the goal, so one thing is public schools and creating a big divide between children and their parents with every opportunity.Histor y revised, attitudes revised, old moral stuff out, new lifestyle stuff in.So this essay is on how Common Core is intentionally different.It puts the teachers, the indoctrinators in charge–and eliminates parental influence, it even makes parents more than just fuddy duddies, it makes them incompetent in scholarly activities.Down with the old, up with the new, revolution, hope and change.John Dewey would be proud When you look back at New Math (ca. 1965) and Reform Math (ca. 1990), one of the most striking and persistent features was that parents could not understand the homework their children brought home. Mystified parents were trying to advise mystified children. The parents, presumably the wise members of the society, were helpless to say anything useful when confronted by the weird complexities of “reform” math, which has now been rolled forward into Common Core. Here is a commonplace horror story that can stand in for millions of others: “When Mike and Camille Chudzinski tried to help their son with his homework earlier this fall, they were bewildered. The fourth-grader brought home no spelling lists, few textbooks, and a whole new approach to solving math problems. When he tackled multi-digit addition, for instance, Patrick did not just line up the two numbers and then add the columns, as his parents had been taught to do. Instead, he sketched out a graph with a series of arrows and marks that appeared at first to his parents as indecipherable as hieroglyphics.” When we hear these stories, we typically focus on the comical oddity of adults not being able to do homework intended for children. How is that even possible? But the ramifications are anything but funny. The real damage is that Reform Math opens up fractures throughout society. Parents are cut off from their children. Parents and schools are pitted against each other. Students are alienated from their teachers and schools. Sociologist James Coleman said that the most important thing in successful education is what he called "social capital." Ideally, parents, kids, schools, and community are on the same page, working toward the same goals. In this way the children feel they are doing appropriate and necessary things. Energy is used to complete tasks, not to debate the merits of the tasks. Imagine the situation in Reform Math when parents can’t do even elementary problems in arithmetic. Adults are angry; children are stressed. Parents have conferences with teachers, and they complain later in front of the children that the teachers couldn’t give them any satisfactory answers. All of this tension and hostility adds up to the perfect excuse for the child to lose interest in math, and in school generally. We hear lots of stories about children who are miserable at school. We shouldn’t be surprised. In short, Reform Math is bad not just because it doesn’t teach math; it’s bad because it’s a society-wrecker. This is Common Core’s dirtiest trick. Professor Michael Toscano writes, “Educational success is also dependent upon closure between families and their schools. In the case of the CCSS, little real ‘social capital’ exists between parents and schools, because the standards were adopted out of the reach of parents and because they will remain out of their reach. This is a crucial mistake. Education must be a common good that emanates from the relations of families in a community.” The divide between parents and children is a far more critical issue than many imagined. The proper priority is that homework should be specifically designed to bring parents and children together. Common Core seems cunningly designed to do the opposite. That’s the main reason it must be defeated. http://www.america nthinker.com/2014/ 04/common_cores_di rtiest_...  (Apr 16, 2014 | post #1)

A small study of marijuana users yielded some potentially troubling results, with researchers claiming that marijuana consumption might have a profound impact on the parts of the brain that process decision-making, emotional assessment, addiction and the processing of rewards. This means — at least based on this particular study’s findings — that weed holds the potential to alter the volume, shape and density of essential structures in the brain. “Just casual use appears to create changes in the brain in areas you don’t want to change,” said study co-author Dr. Hans Breiter, a psychiatrist mathematician at Northwestern University. http://www.theblaz e.com/stories/2014 /04/15/what-does-m arijuana-do-to-a-u sers-brain-new-stu dy-reveals-potenti ally-troubling-res ults/  (Apr 16, 2014 | post #17088)

Federal Agencies Poised to Go After Tea Party Groups as ...

New documents show that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner inquired about the possibility of the Department 0f Justice taking action against organizations that “lied” about their political activity, adding yet another dimension to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Were Other Federal Agencies Poised to Go After Tea Party Groups as Well? In this May 22, 2013 file photo, Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner refuses to answer questions as the House Oversight Committee holds a hearing to investigate the extra scrutiny the IRS gave Tea Party and other conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File) Lerner, then the head of the IRS’ tax-exempt organizations division, relayed a conversation she had with Richard Pilger, director of the Justice Department’s elections crimes branch, in an email to the chief of staff for then-acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act. The discussion of prosecution was prompted by a request from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) during a Senate Judiciary Committee. “He [Pilger] wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who ‘lied’ on their 1024s –saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures,” Lerner wrote to Nikole Flax on May 8, 2013. “DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs.” She added, “I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS.” Flax replied the next day: “I think we should do it – also need to include CI [Criminal Investigation Division], which we can help coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to [the Federal Election Commission]. Does it make sense to consider including them in this or keep it separate?” Lerner contacted Senior Technical Advisor Nancy Marks about scheduling a meeting with IRS and DOJ officials, and opted to let the Justice Department decide whether to involve the FEC. It was on May 10, 2013, during a speech in front of the American Bar Association that Lerner first admitted to the improper targeting of conservative groups, which was done to pre-empt the damaging report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration on May 14. http://www.theblaz e.com/stories/2014 /04/16/were-other- federal-agencies-p oised-to-go-after- tea-party-groups-a s-well/  (Apr 16, 2014 | post #1)

Arizona

Majority of Arizona Republicans: We Want John McCain Gone...

Send this Left Winger packing Although Arizona Senator John McCain hasn't officially announced he'll be seeking another term, recent comments and a glitzy fundraiser in New York City indicate he'll be putting himself up for re-election. But according to a new statewide poll conducted by Citizens United Political Victory Fund, the vast majority of Arizona Republicans aren't so keen on McCain staying in office. Arizona Senator John McCain confronts a very challenging primary landscape should he decide to run for a sixth term in 2016. Although his job approval-disapprov al rating among Republicans statewide is evenly split, and his image is slightly underwater (47.7% favorable, 51.4% unfavorable), it is the fact that Republican Primary voters in Arizona are over twice as likely to elect “a new person” (64.2%) than they are to re-elect McCain (29.3%) that spells trouble. This is not simply “trouble with the Tea Party” or “far-right angst.” Senator McCain struggles at various levels with Republicans across the ideological spectrum, as shown in the Appendix (Tea Party Republicans, Strong, Republicans, Not-so-strong Republicans and Independents). In addition, the poll detailed potential primary match-ups between Governor Jan Brewer, Rep. Matt Salmon, Rep. David Schweikert and McCain. At this point, McCain would lose to all three. Senator McCain also loses to every Republican tested in head-to-head primary balloting. In separate questions, Arizona Republicans prefer both current Governor Jan Brewer (47.7%-29.0%) and Fifth District Representative Matt Salmon (48.2%-30.3%) by double-digit margins. Sixth U.S. District Representative David Schweikert also bests McCain on the Primary ballot (40.1%-33.9%), albeit by a narrower spread. Late last year when asked about whether he would seek another term in office, McCain said he didn't want to "be one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.” http://townhall.co m/tipsheet/katiepa vlich/2014/04/15/m ajority-of-arizona ns-we-want-john-mc cain-gone-in-2016- n1824878?utm_sourc e=thdailypm&ut m_medium=email &utm_campaign= nl_pm  (Apr 15, 2014 | post #1)

Ted Cruz Presents Top Excuses the IRS Won't Accept From You

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is having some fun on this fine tax day by exposing the double standard between people who work at the IRS and taxpayers who must comply with the rules and regulations of the agency. Today marks $1.4 trillion in tax payments from the American people. Uncle Sam’s haul this year is going to be enormous, estimated at $1.4 trillion from individual taxpayers alone. What does all that buy you? Well, an estimated $427 billion will be needed just to pay interest on existing federal debts. Keep working America! The government is depending on you. http://townhall.co m/tipsheet/katiepa vlich/2014/04/15/t ed-cruz-presents-t op-10-excuses-the- irs-wont-accept-fr om-you-n1824838?ut m_source=thdailypm &utm_medium=em ail&utm_campai gn=nl_pm  (Apr 15, 2014 | post #1)

Wendy Davis losing big among Texas women?

Texas women prefer Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott to self-styled feminist Democratic hopeful Wendy Davis, according to a new survey from a left-leaning polling firm. According to a new Public Policy Polling survey, Davis’ favorability rating is upside down with women, while Abbott is right side up. Thirty-two percent of women view Davis favorably, while 46 percent view her unfavorably, and 22 percent were not sure. But 35 percent of women viewed Abbott favorably, and only 27 percent said they viewed him unfavorably. Thirty-eight percent weren’t sure. Abbott also took 49 percent of the female vote in a head-to-head matchup, compared to 41 percent for Davis, with 11 percent unsure. Abbott is also leading Davis among men, 53 percent to 32 percent. PPP’s survey of 559 registered voters from April 10 – 13 has a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percentage points. Overall, it found Abbott with a comfortable 14-point lead over Davis, 51 percent to 37 percent. “Women get exhausted with women candidates who say they are pro-woman and then run on issues that real women don’t say are most important to them,” Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway told The Daily Caller. She added that this is another indication that the Democrats’ “war on women” narrative has run its course.

Racism drives, 'animates' Republican base

L.M.A.O at Liberal, blaming other for all thing that your fault, so they talk about liberal hate for blacks; The NEGRO PROJECT: Margaret Sanger's EUGENIC Plan for Black America The aim of the program was to restrict–many believe exterminate–the black population. Under the pretense of "better health" and "family planning," Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What’s more shocking is Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s créme de la créme–those prominent, well educated and well-to-do–into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment, elevate the race and garner the respect of whites. The Negro Project has had lasting repercussions in the black community: "We have become victims of genocide by our own hands," cried Hunter at the "Say So" march. Malthusian Eugenics Margaret Sanger aligned herself with the eugenicists whose ideology prevailed in the early 20th century. Eugenicists strongly espoused racial supremacy and "purity" ," particularly of the "Aryan" race. Eugenicists hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the race by encouraging the "fit" to reproduce and the "unfit" to restrict their reproduction. They sought to contain the "inferior " races through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion. Abortion and Contraception Key Tools in Black Genocide: Planned Parenthood and similar groups have been using abortion and artificial contraception to control and reduce the African-American population of the US in a slow but deliberate and planned "genocide " that has been ongoing for 150 years, a new documentary claims. The recently released documentary, "Maafa 21," produced by Life Dynamics Incorporated, the Texas-based pro-life investigative group, traces the history of the contraception and abortion industry from its origins in the racist eugenics movement of the early 20th century that un-apologetically targeted the black population and other groups it regarded as inferior. Planned Parenthood was targeted by Civil Rights movement activists in the 1960s and '70s for its involvement in a "black genocide" that had its origins in the early days of the eugenics movement in the 19th century. The film points out that since 1973, legalised abortion has been specifically aimed at the African-American population and has killed more than "cancer, diabetes, heart disease and gang violence combined." "Every week, more blacks die in American abortion clinics than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. And the largest chain of abortion clinics in the United States is operated by Planned Parenthood." It quotes Frederick Osborn, a founding member of the American Eugenics Society, who said in 1973, "Birth control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time." Eugenics, Population Control, Racism, Birth Control - Abortion The principal manifestations of eugenics are racism and abortion. Eugenics is the driving force behind euthanasia, in vitro fertilization, and embryo and fetal research. It is the driving force in global population policy, and affects American foreign policy. It is the force driving much of the environmentalist movement, welfare policy and welfare reform, and health care. It is found in anthropology, sociology, psychology all the social sciences. Eugenics is the study of methods to improve the human race by controlling reproduction. The word was coined in 1883 by Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin. Galton believed that the proper evolution of the human race was thwarted by philanthropic outreach to the poor when such efforts encouraged them to bear more children. Charity upset the mechanism of natural selection. Hence, the human race needed a kind of artificial selection: eugenics http://www.emmeric h1.com/EUGENICS.ht m  (Apr 15, 2014 | post #34)

It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution d...

Biblical Creationary Model for the Universe and Life on Earth A common complaint of atheists is that creationists attack standard models of evolution, but provide no viable alternate model. The purpose of this page is to provide just that - a creationary, scientific model for the universe and life within it. The writings of the Bible provide enough information to form a thorough and complete creationary model for the reality of the universe and human existence. This model has predictive value and can be tested against the known physical characteristics of the universe and life on Earth. Purpose The creationary model is being presented because the standard, naturalistic models have failed in several areas of scientific research. For example, there is no testable naturalistic model for the cause of the universe. In fact, the laws of physics demand that there is no way that we can interact with anything outside of our universe. Other areas that defy naturalistic explanation include the origin of life, the Cambrian explosion, and the origin of human consciousness. Progress is possible in these three areas, but it is unlikely that any naturalistic theory will fully explain key steps required for each process to proceed. It is my contention that none of these processes have a naturalistic origin, and, in fact, are logically impossible, given the laws of physics that operate in our universe. I believe that science will be able to completely rule out all naturalistic origin of life models at some time in the future. Biblical Model of Origins The Bible describes the creation of the universe, the earth, and life on it. The Bible also describes the laws that govern the universe and its ultimate fate. The Order of Creation According to the Bible 1.Creation of the entire physical universe (matter,1 energy,2 space3 and time4) from the invisible (16 x 109 years ago).5 This creation event includes an expanding universe,6 which continues to expand at this time.6 2.Preparation of planet earth for the creation of life. The Bible describes the Earth's initial conditions following its creation when the Sun is already shining. The Bible also says that the Earth is controlled by the heavens and not the other way around (geocentrism is refuted).7 The original Earth is described as being without any oceans or water at all (4.5 x 109 years ago).8 Science tells us that the Earth's water probably came from cometary collisions that were common during the early history of the Solar System.9 The main biblical creation account (Genesis 1) begins after the formation of the Earth's oceans with a description of the Earth as a water-covered planet covered by dense clouds (4.0 x 109 years ago).10 3.The dense atmosphere is partially cleared so that light can strike the surface of the earth. (3.9 x 109 years ago). 4.Formation of a stable water cycle (3.9 x 109 years ago).11 5.Formation of continents, including an accurate description of the tectonic activity that produced the continents (2.7 x 109 years ago)12 6.Creation of plants on the land and their subsequent "production by the land," possibly including some naturalistic processes (0.9 x 109 years ago).13 7.Transformation of the atmosphere from translucent transparent as the Sun, Moon, and stars show through the atmosphere. (0.9-0.6 x 109 years ago) 8.Creation of swarms of small sea animals and their subsequent "great increase" or "teeming by the water" (consistent with the Cambrian explosion) possibly involving some naturalistic processes. (0.5-0.3 x 109 years ago)14 9.Creation of birds (140-60 x 106 years ago)15 10.Creation of sea mammals (60-50 x 106 years ago)16 11.Creation of land mammals that interact with humans (30-15 x 106 years ago)17 a.creeping land mammals (e.g., rodents) b.large quadruped land mammals (e.g., cattle) c.wild land mammals (e.g., carnivores) 12.Creation of modern humans (100-50 x 103 years ago)18 http://www.godands cience.org/apologe tics/model.html  (Apr 15, 2014 | post #129089)

Tim Donnelly wants to abolish CPS, start over from 'groun...

Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly said Tuesday that he would abolish the state's Child Protective Services system and start over "from the ground up," saying social workers often remove children from their homes without sufficient reason. "If I were in charge of the entire state, I can tell you right now I would abolish CPS," he said at a news conference at the Capitol, "because CPS has become the greatest threat to the very kids it was designed to protect." Donnelly, a state assemblyman from Twin Peaks, called the news conference to promote legislation that would require social workers to conduct video or audio recordings of their interactions with children and parents when investigating child abuse. He said recordings would protect both families and social workers in disputes. Assembly Bill 1828 is opposed by the California Welfare Directors Association, which said that "time is of the essence" in child abuse investigations and that "it is imperative that our CPS social workers be able to conduct interviews with children and their parents with unfettered access," according to a letter included in a legislative analysis. Donnelly's remarks came on the same day the state auditor released a report criticizing the child welfare services agencies of Butte, Orange and San Francisco counties. In her report, state Auditor Elaine Howle said the agencies' social workers frequently failed to prepare standard safety and risk assessment s in a timely manner and that they often included inaccurate information. The audit also faulted the agencies for inconsistent follow-up on cases. Donnelly said the CPS system meddles too often in cases where intervention isn't warranted, while devoting too little time to serious matters.

Leland Yee pleads not guilty to corruption and conspiracy...

yee_press_resized. jpg SAN FRANCISCO — State Sen Leland Yee and one of his alleged co-conspirators in a complicated corruption and illegal firearms case pleaded not guilty today on federal charges that could send the San Francisco Democrat to jail for up to 125 years. Keith Jackson, a former Yee consultant and one of 29 defendants in the case, also pleaded not guilty at a joint arraignment before U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero. Another major subject in the federal probe, Raymond "Shrimpboy " Chow, was allowed to postpone his plea after his new attorney, Tony Serra, asked for more time. In an interview outside court, Serra said he will "put the government on trial" and mount a defense that raises issues of official racism and entrapment. "Law enforcement is supposed to investigate crime and criminal activity. In this case, they created crime and criminal activity," Serra said. Prosecutors assert that Jackson introduced Yee to several undercover agents posing as people seeking political favors in exchange for donations to Yee's campaigns for San Francisco mayor in 2011 and secretary of state in 2014. Agents posing as a medical marijuana businessman, a technology vendor and a man seeking a proclamation honoring a Chinatown group offered Yee bribes for his help, the government alleges. Jackson played a key role in the bribery scheme, they say, as the middleman who connected Yee to those seeking favors. Jackson also introduced Yee to an undercover agent posing as someone seeking to buy millions of dollars worth of guns, according to a 137-page federal complaint that says the pair sat down with him to discuss an arms deal. Federal authorities also accuse Jackson of selling several guns to undercover agents and conspiring with his son, Brandon Jackson, to sell cocaine and other drugs.

More on the Common Core Trainwreck a Comin’

Common Core . Some battles were fought in the past and are coming again. http://www.hoover. org/publications/d efining-ideas/arti cle/171441 The Flashpoints, 1. Process over product. The Common Core can be used to justify many things, including questionable approaches to learning. When a particular activity comes under fire, local educators seek political cover by claiming that district or state policies (or the Common Core) made them do it. Recently, the Common Core project released “Standards for Mathematical Practice, content drew the ire of traditionalists in the 1990s math wars. Consider the following anecdote. James V. Shuls, a blogger on education topics, pulled his son, a first grader, out of the local public school because of its interpretation of practice commensurate with the Common Core.[i] The school used a constructivist math program, Cognitively Guided Instruction, that was written during the heyday of the 1989 NCTM Standards. The approach is now making a comeback as “aligned with the Common Core.” Students in the class were forbidden to add numbers in a column. Instead, they were forced to decompose the numbers and show them graphically (draw them), as called for in the Common Core. The parents met with the teacher and principal. The teacher claimed this laborious approach (based on math theories from the Freudenthal Institute, also the founders of the PISA test) revealed students’ conceptual understanding of addition, an example of the “deeper learning” called for in the Common Core. The school’s principal also defended the approach for reflecting the objectives of the Common Core. 2. Non-fiction texts. English language arts teacher are up in arms over the Common Core’s suggestion that teachers should try to balance the assignment of non-fiction and fiction readings. This criticism is mostly inside baseball, limited to ELA teachers. Common Core leaves the selection of texts to local educator The real battles will come when stories surface of teachers assigning controversial texts as required readings. Controversial texts are assigned currently, of course. But in the future, the Common Core will be cited as justification 3. Integrated math courses. Math reformers have long dreamed of eliminating year-long high school math courses taught by topic (algebra, geometry, calculus) in favor of integrated math courses that weave major topics together in composite courses called math I, math II, math III (equivalent to freshman math, sophomore math, junior math, etc.). Most of the world’s countries currently organize math curriculum in the integrated way; the United States is an outlier in not doing so. But this reform has been tried repeatedly (most recently in the state of Georgia) and it has repeatedly failed after stern public opposition. Many teachers are not comfortable teaching an integrated math course, and parents fear taking such a course will jeopardize their children’s preparation for college. Currently only 3-4 percent of US high school students in any particular grade (and less than 10 percent of all graduates) take an integrated math course. And yet, the Common Core accords integrated math and topic-oriented math courses equal standing, with standards and assessments written for both. This is understood to be a way of encouraging the use of integrated math courses. Seattle schools have already announced their intention to switch to integrated courses. Watch for a firestorm of opposition in many communities. 4. Tracking. William Schmidt of Michigan State has declared that the Common Core means an end to tracking in math through eighth grade. Tracking typically starts in seventh or eighth grade, placing kids in courses that match the hierarchy of the math curriculum. Nationally, about 6 percent of seventh graders take algebra I. Students who take and pass algebra I typically then take geometry or algebra II in eighth grade because, presumably, they are prepared for it.  (Apr 8, 2014 | post #1)

NOAA: 2010 tied for warmest on record

2 years ago we heard about the climate warming predicted got eaten by the oceans, well most people would say that’s just a failure of the modelers to account for the tremendous mix master sink that covers the surface and depths of the blue marble earth.? Warmists such as Jennifer Francis have made the silly claim that the record US cold winter was due to man-made global warming causing jet stream blocking, but this paper and many others prove natural cycles are responsible, not CO2. In addition, both the AMO and NAO, as well as other ocean & atmospheric oscillations, have been linked to solar activity. Let’s talk IPCC M and M–Misconduct and Misrepresentations ? Game Set Match–Warmers lose This obsession about carbon dioxide is getting a little old and worn. I like carbon dioxide, it makes things grow. As for warm–I am old–warm is good for me and what arthritis I have. an announcement by a writer from the UK Telegraph is not likely to stop the IPCC and their army of modelers and fakers.

GLENDALE, AZ, April 7, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Arizona's largest Planned Parenthood clinic is fighting the results of an inspection by the state's Department of Health Services in February, which found the clinic was deficient in its treatment of a patient. The inspection also found that the clinic did not provide the requisite licensing and certification records for three employees. According to the Associated Press, which received the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) report after a public records request, the clinic did not give ADHS the "required licensing and certification records" for one health aide and two nurses. The AP also reports that ADHS found a patient's vital signs were not properly monitored, and required laboratory and ultrasound tests were not performed. http://www.lifesit enews.com/news/sta te-inspectors-say- arizonas-largest-p lanned-parenthood- fails-to-meet-medi  (Apr 8, 2014 | post #40)
