 “Dr. Duke Pesta and Dr. Sandra Stotsky Dissect Why Common Core Has Failed Every Child” 

Published on Jan 4, 2018

 FreedomProject’s Academic Director, Dr. Duke Pesta, interviews Dr. Sandra Stotsky on the demonstrable failures of Common Core. According to a new study from the Pioneer Institute, the move to Common Core has decimated academic achievement in Massachusetts. Prior to adopting the Core, Massachusetts schools and educational standards were the finest in the nation, in large part because of the work of Dr. Stotsky. Now, Common Core has relegated Massachusetts to the same underachieving, politicized, centralized mediocrity plaguing the rest of the country’s public schools.

Some really rough notes (with errors) of the video
taken by Donna Ja
ck:

[Common Core] It is everywhere in our schools, and has evolved beyond English and Math – to become a national way to look at every subject.

It is in the textbooks, and other materials, and in our college readiness tests.  Anything aligned to Common Core is basically Common Core. Continue reading

A history of “Fake News” and pointers on how to learn about those who claim “Fake News.” The sources appear to be using “Fake News” to censor the voices of their opposition.

 
How Real Is Fake News? | Sharyl Attkisson | TEDxUniversityofNevada
TEDx Talks

Published on Feb 13, 2018

“Was the effort to focus America’s attention on the idea of “fake news”—itself a propaganda effort? Connect the dots and learn who’s behind it and why. It’s not what you think. Sharyl Attkisson is a five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting and author of two New York Times bestsellers: “The Smear” and “Stonewalled.” Attkisson hosts the Sunday national TV news program “Full Measure,” which focuses on investigative and accountability reporting. For thirty years, Attkisson was a correspondent and anchor at PBS, CNN and CBS News, where the Washington Post described her as “a persistent voice of news-media skepticism about the government’s story.” She’s a fourth degree blackbelt in TaeKwonDo. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. “

0294_Is Fascism Right or Left_ PragerU video_ also Google and YouTube restricting PragerU videos_ email about lawsuit by Prager University for restricting almost 40 videos

In light of the previous blog piece #0293 about Facebook banning Donna Garner from publishing on Facebook — it seems a good time to post information about the battle PragerU is involved in.  YouTube has banned nearly 40 of PragerU videos.  READ BELOW, SIGN PETITION, AND CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR LEGAL FUND.

Below is PragerU’s video:   Is Fascism Right or Left?   A transcript of the video is later in this blog piece, and here.

Two quotes from the movie:  “YouTube has restricted PragerU videos for only one reason: Ideological discrimination.”

“This kind of censorship is what we have seen on college campuses for years. But it is far more dangerous in this circumstance because the internet is where the world goes to get informed.”

0293_ “My Thoughts on Being Banned by Facebook” _by Donna Garner (Note: Dennis Prager with Prager U is fighting Google/YouTube for banning almost 40 of his videos)

DANGEROUS TIMES of RAMPANT CENSORSHIP –
hidden from most of the public

We are living in very dangerous and frightening times — and most Americans are oblivious to this.  Truth is being censored out of the “news” and “information” given to the public.

People are unaware because

1)  Our school curriculum and assessments/testing are controlled
federally and internationally by people who are purposely
undermining our Constitutional republic.

See some backup information substantiating the above claims:
0074_Common Core: Subversive Threat to Education_Karen Bracken_April 8, 2013_YouTube  published 02/25/16        (YouTube and Transcript)

2)   The mainstream media (on television, online and in print) and Hollywood
are complicit in these efforts to censor out any information that
does not support the narrative (agenda) of the Left.

PragerU suing Google/YouTube —
Facebook blocking Garner’s writing

See Blog post #294 for a PragerU video about “Is Fascism Right or Left?  — and read about PragerU’s lawsuit against Google/YouTube for banning some of their videos.

Yesterday I posted Blog 0292, which contained a request from Donna Garner, to tweet Congress requesting release of the memo that reveals illegal activity by people in our government. Today I learned that Facebook has banned Donna Garner’s writing (see email below).

Donna Garner wrote:  “ It should give all of us much concern that Zuckerberg’s Facebook is trying to control the free flow of speech, particularly among those of us who are trying so hard to preserve our Constitution and the Rule of Law.”

The Mainstream Media continues to
deflect/obstruct/hide/and lie.

The mainstream media has purposely kept all real information away from the public, and instead has daily attacked President Trump and Republicans.  The general public knows nothing about the investigations that are going on concerning real collusion between people in this country and Russia (but not Trump).  Continue reading

Our academic system in the United States is designed to keep students focused only on what the system wants them to know, or feel, or do.  They are not equipped to make their own decisions, but rather to carry out the wishes of the “education” system.

0241_Media obsession with Russia is Malpractice_ The biased media that most people watch and listen to pushes propaganda__ ignoring interests of the public_article by Gary Bauer

August 11, 2017

True to their consistent performance for many years, the mainstream media continues to push their propaganda — ignorng what people are interested in.  Instead they work day after day to convince people to believe that what the mainstream meadia wants them to believe, is what they should believe.

Below is an article forwarded by Donna Garner.

  7.19.17 — Excerpts from Campaign for Working Families – Gary Bauer

 “Media Malpractice”

The media’s obsession with Russia amounts to journalistic malpractice.  Very few people care about this overhyped nonsense. Meanwhile, the big media complex is failing to report on the things people really do care about.

A recent Bloomberg Poll asked Americans to rank the most important issues facing the country.  Here’s how the results broke down:

Health care 35%
Jobs/Unemployment 13%
Terrorism 11%
Immigration 10%
Climate Change 10%
Russia 6%
Taxes 4%
Other 4%
Trade 2%

Only six percent of Americans said Russia was the most important issue facing the country today.
