0202_Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism — presented by Dennis Prager (video)

Donna Jack
May 4, 2017

Students in public  school are not taught the truth about Communism.

Quotes from this video:

“Until the left, and all the institutions influenced by the left, acknowledge how evil communism has been, we will continue to live in a morally confused world.

“In the meantime, all good people owe it to the victims of communism to learn what happened to them. Even worse than being murdered or enslaved is a world that doesn’t even know that you were.”

Dennis Prager presents this 5 minute 19 second (5:19) video.  (posted May 1, 2017).  You can link to the facts mentioned in the video – and at his site either view the transcript of the video — or you can download the transcript.

0201_Why Competency-based Education will Deepen America’s Education Crisis—by Jane Robbins

Donna Jack
May 4, 2017

Donna Garner forwarded this article across the country today.  Following are a few selections from the article.  You can link the article at:  http://thefederalist.com/2017/05/04/competency-based-education-will-deepen-americas-education-crisis/

Samples from Jane Robbins’
May 4, 2017 Competency-Based Education (CBE) article

“Our Choices: Minimum Competency Or Indoctrination. Some CBE proponents straightforwardly argue that education must be changed to focus less on instilling knowledge and more on training students in “twenty-first-century skills” such as creativity, communication, and collaboration.
Unencumbered by facts, the government can then establish its own definitions of what success looks like in those areas.”

“This is where CBE becomes much more dangerous than its predecessor OBE. Modern technology allows the training to be accomplished much more effectively, and with data-capture mechanisms that can literally reshape our children’s lives.”

“Slicing and Dicing Kids’ Minds for Market Digital learning uses interactive software to track the student’s every keystroke, and perhaps his psysiological reactions, to create a personal mind-map illustrating not just what the child knows but also how his brain works.  This is perfect for CBE.  Th Student can work his way through the different benchmarks at his own pace and have all his responses recorded and incorporated into an algorithm that shows where he is and where he’s likely to go.”

“According to the CEO of mind-mapper Knewton, the ed-tech companies will have so much data on each student that they can predict what he will do and tell him what he should do.  Few parents want the government (through the schools) to have this much information on their children, but of course, parents won’t be told how all this works.”

“CBE isn’t real education. It’s a mechanism for control. States must reject it.

CONTENTS

1.  County Commissioners to vote soon – we’re under “old rule” – intentions behind AFFH
2. Introduction and the Video:_AFFH in Five Minutes R2 11080_ Video Transcript   
___________________________

   1.  This blog piece is an introduction to AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing) 

Our Colorado Jefferson County county commissioners will vote before April 30th, whether to accept HUD AFFH grant money.  Become informed, and encourage them not to accept HUD/AFFH funds.

This movie and transcript deal specifically with the new rule.

Since our county set up our five-year plan last year, we aren’t under the “new” AFFH rule.  Some people think that means we don’t have to worry, but the truth is that HUD has been testing the waters since 2009, to see how much control they can take.

In 2009, they first chose to go after the county of Westchester in New York.  The litigation and efforts to comply have taken 7 years, and it looks like they may not have paid enough.  They may have to continue integrating people into their communities, and building and financing, more government subsidized high rises.  Below is a sample paragraph from an article by Mark Lungariello about the expense and grief Westchester has gone through: all because they accepted grand money from HUD through AFFH.

“The benchmark was the centerpiece of a landmark 2009 settlement with the federal government in which the county agreed to build the housing in 31 of its richest and statistically whitest communities — and take other steps to promote affordable housing in the region.” Continue reading

0183_The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story by Robert Buchar (Communism never fell in Eastern Europe and is alive in Russia) — a report, review, and a site where you can buy the documentary

Donna Jack
February 25, 2017/update March 23, 2017

Here is another shocking report.  Communism never fell.  The Collapse of Communism:  The Untold Story, a documentary — and book based on the documentary — are subjects of this Blog.  See Blog 191 for a 2012 interview with Robert Buchar, maker of the documentary and author of the book.

You can see a 5-minute trailer of the documentary at:  http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/wmatrailer.html

Note:  The companion book to this DVD is:  And Reality Be Damned…Undoing America:  What media didn’t tell you about the end of the Cold War and the fall of communism in Europe, by Robert Buchar.    http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/book.html

Many of the people who spoke and are quoted in the documentary “The Collapse of Communism….”, came from:  “KGB defectors, dissidents, former CIA officials, and documents from secret files of KGB and the Gorbachev’s Library.”

This documentary speaks for itself.  It presents information about what has really been going on with Russian Communism. It helps explain what we are witnessing in our country today.

The KGB took over, and hand-picked Russian leader Vladimir Putin (who is third-generation KGB), to rule Russia.  As we have seen, Putin has continued toward their goal — destruction of the United States, and conquest of the world.

Following the link to the DVD movie trailer below is:  1) a report about the documentary from the www.collapseofcommunism.com website, and 2)  a message from the author of the documentary (Robert Buchar).

DVD DOCUMENTARY

 “The Collapse of Communism:  The Untold Story” (A Robert Buchar Film) is an excellent DVD documentary which exposes as false narrative, what we have been taught to believe:  the myth that the Cold War ended with the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe  — and that Communism was destroyed in Russia.  Go to Blog 0181 to read about three areas that International Communism has been targeting — with the purpose of destroying our country.
Following is a trailer of the film.

0180_Who is Joe McCarthy? Not who you thought he was. Finally the truth is known that he was right — 50 years later! — “Blacklisted” by M. Stanton Evans

SOME WRITTEN AND AUDIO REVIEWS OF M. STANTON EVANS’ BOOK:  Blacklisted by History:  The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies…

Click here to read a review by a lady named Michelle — of the book Blacklisted by History_The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies_by M. Stanton Evans 2007

 You can listen to a 9.5-minute audio book report on Amazon — of Blacklisted…  just scroll down to the “Related Video Shorts” section of this link.  Or you can listen to it below (it may take a little while for it to download – so be patient):

GREAT REFERENCE BOOK

This book is a great reference book, and clears up a lot of misinformation about Joe McCarthy.

LIES WERE MANUFACTURED AND DESIGNED FROM THE BEGINNING,
TO USE McCARTHY AS THE “POSTER CHILD” FOR IMAGINARY ACCUSATIONS,

IN ORDER TO NEUTRALIZE THE TRUTH

Almost all of academia, the vast majority of the press, and most of the public, have been saying McCarthy was nuts, even at the time Joe McCarthy was trying to reveal Communist infiltration.  At that time, any of McCarthy’s mistaken claims, and things he did out of  frustration, were magnified and repeated.  He was effectively discounted — but Joe McCarthy was actually provably right about the Communist infiltration of our government!

He came on the scene soon after the Whittaker Chambers/Alger Hiss investigations and trial(s) (1948).  In 1948 the statute of limitations had passed, so Alger Hiss couldn’t be put in prison for being a Soviet espionage agent.  But he was proven guilty of being a Soviet espionage agent, and was convicted and put in prison for perjury – – for saying he was not a Soviet espionage agent.

Joe McCarthy was effectively used by the Left, as a good neutralizing force that diverted people away from the reality that Alger Hiss and other Soviet Communists had become part of our government, and were doing damage.

THE FACT OF SOVIET COMMUNIST INFILTRATION AND THEIR
WORK IN OUR GOVERNMENT IS PROVEN THROUGH THOUSANDS OF RESOURCES

0177_Epidemic in our country: believing the worst (or best) without any knowledge_Link to Goebbels’ quote about repeating big lie (people will believe it)

Donna Jack
February 10, 2017

In Blog Post 0178 you can read Joseph Goebbels’ quote  — it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people.  You can also read his quote in Quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.

We need to be slow to judge people, and slow to anger.  Those who wish to control us, use against us, our weakness to swiftly judge and to get angry.  They keep repeating lies — lies that are designed to divide.

It is difficult to avoid judging people,
when quick harsh judgment is all around us every day.

Almost no matter where we go, people seem to be angry, saying bad things about people — frequently these uncomplimentary words are about people they don’t even know.  People often seem to be eager to cut someone else down.  These harsh unkind words are not only focused on strangers, but just as easily shift focus to people close to home:  people in our schools, our churches, at work, in our neighborhoods, clubs …  and in our own families .

Blog post 0090 goes into detail about “Label-Libel” — a term I found in a book
from a New Mexico teacher supply store.

Human nature is a combination of both good and bad.  Those who have evil goals in mind to control other people, frequently take advantage of the weaknesses of human nature (greed, selfishness, dishonesty, pride, vengeance, gossip, hatred, anger, impatience).  They encourage and feed these weaknesses, in order to divide us from each other, so that they can accomplish their own selfish goals.
