0219_BREAKING NEWS TRUMP 6/21/17: Do you think America is at a turning Point?_YouTube–Sean Hannity report

Donna Jack
June 21, 2017

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.”

“It’s Only OK When We Do It”
John J. Newkirk·Wednesday, May 10, 2017

My latest Opinion column for the Courier newspapers talks about hypocrisy in our public servants. Complete quotes (condensed here for brevity) can be found by clicking on the hyperlinks:

Selective outrage is all the rage these days. That is, what one group calls outrageous becomes perfectly acceptable behavior — so long as they’re the ones doing it.

Examples of selective outrage abound in places like Washington, D.C. and Berkeley, but we really don’t need to go that far. We can see it right in our own backyard.

Three years ago, Jeffco Public Schools found itself searching for a new leader after the superintendent resigned (and as Secretary of the Board of Education, I had a front-row seat). We hired a national search firm that specializes in public school leaders and, with their assistance, evaluated applicants until there were about half a dozen semifinalists, the identities of whom were contractually confidential. After interviewing each semifinalist, we rated them on a scoresheet provided by the executive search firm. Ultimately, the list of contenders was narrowed down to a single finalist — and that’s when the outrage began. Continue reading

0206_Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Implies Common Core Are ‘High Standards’ — she is wrong — by Dr. Susan Berry (May 6, 2017)_Dr. Sandra Stotsky_ Mike Pence_Dr. Jason Zimba_Dr. James Milgrim_Ze’ev Wurman

THIS IS A FOLLOW-UP ON BLOG 0205–Go to Blog 0205 for background information connected with this article.

Comments about:   Common Core and ESSA – and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

Common Core was coercively pushed on school districts and states across our country,  (using force and threats in addition to bribery) — it was deceptively implemented, keeps growing in its scope, and has not gone away.

Common Core was officially made federal law (ESSA) in December 2015.  If Betsy DeVos does not know that, or if she does and is hiding it, she should not be our Education Secretary.  We need someone who will honestly and thoroughly champion for local control of education — not just in words, and not just in little parts – but have local control truly be the top priority.

Go to the end of Blog 0205, for some links to other blogs on this website that deal with Common Core.  They contain information that will be helpful to people who know nothing about Common Core, and they are also excellent resources for people who have studied Common Core for years.

0197_Part 3_HUD/AFFH_ How to Contact our Colorado Jeffco County Commissioners – ask them NOT to accept HUD/AFFH money this month or ever again

A Video:_AFFH in Five Minutes
Blogs on this site about HUD/AFFH, see Blogs 195, 196, and 198
More information about HUD/AFFH at the end of this blog.


Our County Commissioners will choose whether to accept HUD/AFFH
federal grant money.

Video explaining what HUD/AFFH has become

Contact all three of our commissioners by emailing:  http://jeffco.us/bcc/contact/
(To email them individually see later in this blog piece.)
Or leave messages for all three at:  303-271-8525
More Contact Information about our Commissioners below, near the end of this Blog.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
We have accepted two kinds of HUD/AFFH grant money in the past:
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME)

HUD can’t take away our local control but….

The federal government can’t take away our local control – but our County Commissioners can GIVE away control to the federal government by agreeing to HUD/AFFH terms in order to receive federal HUD/AFFH money.

The vote will be soon.

Before the end of this month (April 2017) our three Colorado Jefferson County, County Commissioners, will be voting whether to accept HUD/AFFH grant money  [Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment partnerships (HOME)].

Please call or email.

Please ask the Jeffco County Commissioners to vote against accepting the grant money.  If they do NOT accept the HUD/AFFH money, they retain their control as our County Commissioners — and we keep our planning and zoning decisions within our own county.

See Blogs 0195 and 0196  and 0198 for information about the disaster that HUD/AFFH has become.

The Commissioners’ job description is below –
(If they accept the grant money,
they sign over their responsibilities to the federal government)

 “The board provides leadership and vision in guiding Jefferson County government, and the commissioners are responsible for overseeing the organization and budgets of a wide variety of county programs designed to benefit citizens. Please view our organization chart.

“The commissioners hold numerous meetings and public hearings to set policies and make decisions regarding land use, transportation, open space purchases, social service concerns, community development, law enforcement, libraries, public health and many other vital issues.” Continue reading

Decision & History_County of Westchester v. HUD – Decided September 25, 2015
(27 pages)

Westchester County New York is a 10-year real life example of HUD/AFFH experimenting to see how they can take the most control away from local government.  Westchester’s story demonstrates vividly, why counties should avoid taking any grant money from HUD.  The damage that has been done to Westchester is sad, and frightening.  We don’t want the damage to increase in our county.

We need to vote against accepting the grant money, so that we do not jeopardize the financial stability, and the neighborhood life styles of our county.  HUD is going after every suburb, to equalize financial and ethnic balance (social engineering).  If we do not accept grant money, we are safe.

Spreading the Wealth – by Stanley Kurtz
Who is the driving force behind HUD?

Spreading the Wealth by Stanley Kurtz, gives a good foundation for understanding  who the people and the organizations that are the driving force behind what HUD has become —  and how AFFH is their tool to bring counties under HUD’s control (taking away not only planning and zoning decisions from the counties, but also a host of other local choices.  They are pushing regionalism (erasing the voice of individuals living in communities).

On page 39 in the sub-chapter “Shaking up Suburbia” Stanley Kurtz lists three main components of regionalism, which aim to gradually destroy the suburbs:

“1)  Redistribute suburban money to the cities (taking a disproportionate amount of suburban taxes, and giving them to the cities).
2)  Force middle-class suburbanites back to the city.
3)  Force the urban poor out into the suburbs.”  (Importing the poor and financing them in the suburbs – this is called “economic integration” on the suburbs.[1]

WESTCHESTER COUNTY NEW YORK SUED

In 2006, the county was sued for “false claims.”  They had accepted HUD grant money, but had not made a study to see if they were keeping housing opportunities away from people because of their race.  They didn’t need to make the sturdy, because they weren’t excluding people because of race.  Westchester was the fourth most integrated county in New York State in 2006, when a civil rights group, Anti-Discrimination Center of Metro New York (ADC),  decided to sue them.

___________________________

   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

Thorough Account of events after Nov. 2013 BOE election

background information:

WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE 2013 NOVEMBER ELECTION
WHEN THREE JEFFCO SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS WERE ELECTED
WHO WERE NOT SUPPORTED BY THE UNIONS?

Julie was one of the three members of the Jefferson County Board of Education (JeffcoBOE) elected in November 2013.  The three were not endorsed by the unions.  Since the Jeffco BOE is a 5-member board, they became the majority!  Immediately after their elections, the unions began working to recall the three — and two years later, the unions successfully had the three recalled.

Julie Williams Speaking


Below you can watch a YouTube by Pundit Pete, of the then newly-elected Julie Williams speaking on February 13, 2014.  That evening she gave an update on what had been happening since they were sworn into their board positions the previous month!  https://youtu.be/Dr97bSVjsPI

Meeting March 27, 2017

An informative meeting took place at the Lewis Barn in Evergreen.  Julie Williams and Colorado State Senator Tim Neville were the guest speakers at the March meeting of the 285 Corridor Tea Party:

March 27th at 6:30 pm
The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park
26624 N. Turkey Creek Road
Evergreen, CO 80439


Julie Williams spoke first, after several people who attended shared information with the group.  Below are summaries of topics Julie addressed.

Julie said there were parallels between her experiences Nov. 2013-2015
and the things happening in D.C.

Julie drew a parallel between what the unions did in Jefferson County to the three non-union supported board members — and what unions and the Left are doing against Trump and his administration.

She stressed the importance of not wasting time, and not underestimating the ability of the establishment (unions, mainstream media, academia, the Left, etc.) to work relentlessly and effectively to destroy the character and credibility of the new administration with the bombardment of lies, accusations, and subtle, or not-so-subtle, innuendoes.

0189_Out of Bondage: The Story of Elizabeth Bentley_1951_an auto-biography of an American spy for the Soviet Union from 1938 until 1945 – Part 1– introduction by dj

Donna Jack
March 13, 2017/updated Mar 15, 2017

Recently I completed my first reading of Elizabeth Bentley’s autobiography, Out of Bondage:  The Story of Elizabeth Bentley.  This blog is an introduction to the personal drama that Elizabeth Bentley lived through. You will experience breath-taking adventure as you read for yourself — the first-hand account of her life as an international Soviet Communist espionage agent!

NOTE:  Soviet espionage is not confined to the 1930s and 1940s.  It has continued, and still exists today.

Through her book, Elizabeth takes you with her as she comes to believe that she is going to help make the world a better place for everyone.  Eventually you will experience with her, the growing horror that she feels, as she gradually discovers she has been duped — and then realizes that she is trapped.  She finds herself part of a world-wide sinister plan to enslave the part of mankind that will be allowed to live.  Would she be allowed to live, or would anyone else  she knew survive?

Elizabeth Bentley is another one of our true American Heroes who ends up risking everything, including her own life, in order to help uncover the operation that she for many years, had an active part in implementing and managing.

This blog piece focuses on some of how she got ensnared into Communism.

Her experience is in many ways common to countless people who have gotten sucked into supporting the goal of Communist world domination, believing the fantasy that Communist promise:  justice and fairness for all mankind.

How can an educated, white, middle-class person, get to the point in their life, where they want to risk their life to help destroy their own country?  As you read Elizabeth’s autobiography you find some answers to that question.
