Bat Shit Crazy

Politics-TheLongWarAndCommonCore

Readers may think I have to search far and wide to find material for these Bat Shit Crazy posts. Not at all. It turns out we have more Bat Shit Crazy right here in Texas than Bracken Cave has guano. Take, for example, State Senator Bob Hall, of Edgewood:

According to a noted authority, “Common Core is the latest effort by the progressive, autocratic elite bureaucrats to completely transfer all decisions concerning children from parents, teachers, and school boards to the Federal Government.”  Donna Hearne, author of The Long War and Common Corepoints out that the implementation of Common Core will completely transform America from a nation of responsible, moral, and independent human beings endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to robots and servants of the state.  In fact, under the direction of the chief players who wrote, promoted and schemed to sell Common Core Standards to the government, millions of our children will be subject to mandatory testing and invasive data collection at a level that is far more problematic and overreaching than is currently in place.  Under Obama’s plan, the federal government dictates the materials to be used in classroom instruction, participation is mandated, and states not implementing Common Core will lose federal dollars appropriated for the program.

What would Texans do if we did not have State Senator Bob Hall of Edgewood to alert us to dangers lurking in the nefarious mechanizations of the current administration? Why, we would be at the mercy of these “progressive, autocratic elite bureaucrats.” To be sure, a fate worse than death. A bit of background uncovers the rot at the base of the sinister menace that is Common Core:

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative in the United States that details what K–12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce.

The involvement of Barack Obama (the anti-Christ) is not immediately clear from the description posted on Wikipedia. A careless reader will get the idea that Common Core is the idea of the National Governors Association, along with the Council of Chief State School Officers. Some Skeptical Analysis is in order. A closer examination reveals the sad truth behind the NGA:

The National Governors Association (NGA) is an organization consisting of the governors of the states, territories and commonwealths of the United States. The NGA’s role is to act as a collective voice for governors on matters of national policy, as well as allowing governors to share best practices and coordinate inter-state initiatives. The organization was founded in 1908 as the National Governors’ Conference.

Yes, it would appear that shortly after the turn of the 20th century, scheming politicians were already laying the groundwork for Obama’s takeover. They must been aware back then about the coming of the anti-Christ.

Admittedly, all of this has failed to nail down the connection between Common Core and Obama’s plan for the federal government to dictate the materials to be used in classroom instruction. Perhaps additional reading from Wikipedia will clear the matter up:

In 2009, the NGA convened a group of people to work on developing the standards. This team included David Coleman, William McCallum of the University of Arizona, Phil Daro, and Student Achievement Partners founders Jason Zimba and Susan Pimentel to write standards in the areas of mathematics and literacy. Announced on June 1, 2009, the initiative’s stated purpose is to “provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.” Additionally, “The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers,” which should place American students in a position in which they can compete in a global economy.

All right. That didn’t go far toward making the connection clear. Unless you are willing to read carefully between the lines, the foregoing will leave you with the impression this is a movement at the state level, leaving obscure any of Obama’s fingerprints. It may be necessary to draw from additional sources to get to the bottom of this. How about “Donna Hearne, author of The Long War and Common Core?” State Senator Bob Hall cites Hearne and her book as evidence “that the implementation of Common Core will completely transform America from a nation of responsible, moral, and independent human beings endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to robots and servants of the state.” That’s tall order for just one book, and what an amazing book it must be. My inspiration was to obtain a copy. And I did. Just a mouse click, and Amazon delivered a copy to me ($6 and tax) on my computer. Here’s a first glance:

We uncovered amazing documents unknown to parents who were connected with their schools, dedicated teachers and good competent administrators. This was the beginning of thirty-plus years of research, and in the 1990s, resulted in the publication of three straightforward books: The Dawning of the Brave New World; Sex, School and Politics; and Paychecks and Power written in an effort to awaken America’s families to the coming and ultimate collision of the individual and the state. The Long War & Common Core is birthed from these three works, along with a culmination of articles from Front Line, 1 a journal of current public policy information published by The Constitutional Coalition, and other resources.

Hearne, Donna H. (2015-08-03). The Long War & Common Core: Everything You Need to Know to Win the War (Kindle Locations 169-176). Freedom Basics Press. Kindle Edition.

Ouch! That is going to be interesting reading. Stand by, people. This is only 160 pages, and I will get on it, just as soon as I finish my review of Alan Turing: the Enigma.

Confession time. Search as I might, I was unable to locate the connection between Common Core and Obama’s evil plan for our nation’s school children. Perhaps revealing detail lies deep within Hearne’s 160 pages ($6 and tax). Maybe not.

And that’s all I have to offer today, folks. Try as I might, I keep stumbling across facts. After over seven years everybody still has their guns, satanists are not sacrificing babies in classrooms, and the President is still a Christian. All the rest is bat shit crazy.
