Once again Sean Hannity is laying out the case for the clear and present danger that is growing before our eyes. Today he shared critical information in an almost 45-minute YouTube. He tells us there are “dangers in this country.”
“A soft coup is under way, right here, in the United States of America, in an attempt to overturn November’s election results, and forcibly remove a duly-elected president from office. Sinister forces quickly aligning, in what is becoming now, in my mind a clear and present danger.”
“We’re at a turning point tonight, with forces now forming an alliance to try to remove President Trump from office. It’s that serious.”

THIS MONTH OUR COLORADO JEFFERSON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
WILL VOTE WHETHER TO ACCEPT HUD/AFFH GRANT MONEY
— Let them know why they should not accept the HUD/AFFH money.
Our county commissioners were scheduled to vote whether to accept AFFH grant money on April 4th. They voted to postpone the date, in order to gather more information.
This period of time is an opportunity for people who want to protect their property rights, to study up on this issue, and contact our county commissioners. Help them understand why it is important to all of us, that they vote NOT to accept the grant money.
The YouTube video introducing AFFH
(Material quoted below is from transcript of the AFFH in Five Minutes YouTube above)
“July 16, 2015, AFFH became the basis for a new rule adding severe strings to Housing and Urban Development grants. These new stipulations will shake the very foundations of your community.
“The people who control LAND USE and ZONING LAWS, also control much of where and how you will live, the value of your home, and what it will cost to keep it. Right now these are controlled by your community and your local officials who reflect your wishes. HUD is about to change that.”
Test Cases to file Discrimination and False Claims Act Lawsuits (under the old rules).
HUD has begun test cases to devastate and restructure communities, using the older rules. See the example of Westchester
The 5 minute 51 second YouTube video below, is an introduction to AFFH. You can watch three other YouTubes are later in this blog. All contain background information to help you understand what the AFFH mandates mean to all of us.
Some believe it is kind to give away money and affordable housing.
People who hear about bringing affordable housing into their communities, think it is a kindness. But they don’t realize what it will do to their lifestyle and their community.
A lot of people believe that accepting “free” money from our government is perfectly harmless — in fact even helpful.
House and Urban Development (HUD) may have begun as a sincere effort in the 1960s, trying to bring equal treatment of blacks, and helping people have freedom from persecution because of their race. But it has turned into a tool that is now being used for social engineering — controlling where people live, and what they can do in their own community. It is attempting to make every neighborhood in the country conform to a prescribed, forced, equal balance of race and economic level – and it is moving people out of their neighborhoods, to live in others to achieve this “balance” and “equality.”

“Stoppinig AFFH — Harvesting the Delay; Talking to Lawyers; The Ultimate Solution — Just Say “no”
Elimination of property rights.
The federal “rules” attached to accepting the HUD money, are changeable in the future. There is potentially unlimited control hanging over our heads if we accept the HUD money. In other words, there are no constraints on the interpretations of the mandates as they exist now, or in future mandates.
SOME BELIEVE THAT SINCE THE NEW ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN
ELECTED, THE CONTROLS WILL BE LIFTED —
AND WE WILL THEN BE SAFE
Realistically we should never count on changes in Congress. We are watching everything being stonewalled by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress. And if AFFH is eliminated by this Congress, when the power shifts in a future election, we will be back to where we are now — on a track for losing all of our property rights. We will lose the freedom to chose a neighborhood that we can afford, in the “flavor” we wish.
We need to preserve options now for property owners and renters.
We need to protect ourselves on a local level (county). THINK LOCAL CONTROL! Think freedom.
IT IS NECESSARY TO WEAN OURSELVES OFF FEDERAL MONEY,
AND INSTEAD SPEND EFFORTS
TO FIND LOCAL FUNDING SOURCES.
We need to move away from taking these HUD/AFFH government “grants” or “free money” — federal government money is never free, but always takes away our choices on the local level, and at the state level.
Some people in both Douglas County (Colorado) where they refused the grant money — and in Jefferson County, where we hope they refuse the grant money —
some people are working to help set up private money to
help make up for the loss of grant money
Three more YouTubes that give information about AFFH
(Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing)
1. John Anthony Palmetto Panel 2016 (48 minutes 15 seconds)
From YouTube: Published on Mar 24, 2016
2. Straight Talk About Planning — The Other Side of Sustainable Development — (4 minutes 47 seconds)
“Published on Jul 11, 2013
“Most of us see sustainable development as helpful. In fact, sustainable development planning is costing people their property values and the grant money planners provide usually comes with strings that further limit property owners’ rights while recasting the social makeup of your community.
“This video is a brief explanation of the caution everyone should apply before jumping into sustainable development plans. It also offers suggestions for doing your own community planning.”
“County Executive Robert P. Astorino describes the issues Westchester continues to have with HUD, as HUD makes demands that are “beyond the four corners of the settlement.” This is despite the fact that the county is ahead of schedule in building the agreed upon 750 affordable housing units.”
“Senior fellow at American Principles Project Emmett McGroarty tells Breitbart News:
“The fact that Alabama can’t freely choose its assessments confirms that ESSA failed to return control over K-12 education back to state and local government. No person, no administration has come up with a way for the federal government to exercise such power without it being an unaccountable political bully. It is time to stop this farce and to truly return education policymaking to state and local government, where it would be closest to parents and other citizens.”

“Alabama ‘Test Case’ of Trump Administration’s Commitment to Local Control of Education”
The Trump Department of Education’s rejection of a request by Alabama to drop the ACT Aspire test for its students in favor of different tests is spurring sentiment that the state may well be a “test case” to see how committed President Donald Trump and U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos are to “local control” of education.
“Trump’s smart cuts to education” – By Williamson M. Evers & Vicki E. Alger
Excerpts from this article:
It’s the end of the world as we know it – at least that’s what some people would have us believe about President Trump’s education budget.
It’s “a devastating blow to the country’s public education system,” according to National School Boards Assn. CEO Thomas Gentzel. More like a “wrecking ball,” says Lily Eskelsen García, president of the National Education Assn. teachers’ union. No, it’s a veritable “assault on the American Dream,” insists John B. King Jr., former Obama administration secretary of education.
Such hyperbole is reminiscent of the early 1980s, when President Reagan’s opponents battled his administration’s education cuts, and it’s about as inaccurate today as it was back then.
The Hyde Amendment has long been the single most important pro-life legislation at the federal level, originally enacted in 1976 and upheld on a 5-4 vote by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1980. The amendment, which is an annual rider to the federal budget, prohibits the use of federal taxpayer dollars to fund abortion.

Online learning is increasingly being used to boost graduation rates. Online learning replaces teacher classroom instruction time.
There is no measure of the quality of online learning — no quality contro! Graduation rates are tied to the performance grade of schools. Graduation rate increases are necessary for a school to receive funding – increases that must occur in order in order for principals to keep their jobs –and ultimately for schools to continue existing.
Do increased rates of student graduation from high school, automatically reflect what students have accomplished academically? Or are graduation rate increases just empty goals to reach, in order for schools to get funding – and for principals to keep their jobs? What does graduation from high school actually measure? Does graduation necessarily measure anything – or does “graduation”insure any academic meaning at all?

More people connected with Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education (a main supporter of Common Core) are in the U.S. Department of Education. We can only hope that Betsy DeVos no longer supports Common Core as she did through her finances and associations with Jeb Bush and his foundation (FEE).
Article showing serious “conflict of interest” and conflict of message around Betsy DeVos and those supporting her
selection as Department of Education Secretary
“Though U.S. [Department of] Education Secretary Betsy DeVos hasfundedand served organizations that promote Common Core – including Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education [FEE] – since her nomination, she has denied she supports the controversial standards.
“The secretary, nevertheless, hassurroundedherself with advisers and staff who have ties to Bush’s foundation, as well as to Indiana, where Common Core was repealed, but then simply ‘rebranded.’”
Let us begin with a very terse description: Cultural Marxism is a broad term which refers to the advocacy and application of critical theory, and more generally to the cultural, political, and academic influence of certain elements within the contemporary Left.
The roots of Cultural Marxism are to be found in what is commonly known as the Frankfurt School.
The term arose informally to describe the thinkers affiliated, or merely associated with, the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, during the interval period.
Critical of both Capitalism and Soviet Socialism, they sought to address the perceived shortcomings of Classical Marxism in the pursuit of societal change. Their work came to be known as Critical Theory. Continue reading →
