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

Robert Morris first published “Soviets in the Classroom” in 1989, soon after he became the new chairman of the board at America’s Future. See Blogs #0173, 0174 & 0175, which talk about or mention the article “Soviets in the Classroom.”
This blog is an introduction to the organization called America’s Future, that began in 1946.
“Our historical commitment and our current strategic position make the United States the central redoubt of human liberty. If we fall, the lights of liberty will be extinguished all over the world for the foreseeable future.”
Robert Morris Self Destruct: Dismantling America’s Internal Security
“The original America’s Future, Inc., established in 1946, headquartered for many years in New Rochelle, New York, and now in St. Louis, Missouri — for 57 years [has been] dedicated to the preservation of our free enterprise system and our constitutional form of government.”

Yesterday one of my all-time heroes Phyllis Schlafly, left us, and is now in heaven. She has been a great inspiration to me almost all my adult life.
Many years ago I used to listen to her radio broadcasts, and just learned today that she has been speaking regularly on the radio ever since 1983 – and was still broadcasting up until she died.
In 1972 the “Equal Rights Amendment” (ERA) was passed in both houses of Congress, and was then sent to the states for ratification. The deadline for ratification was March 22, 1979. Phyllis mobilized conservative women and men across the country, showing them how the ERA would actually hurt housewives and families. I attended a debate at Denver University during that time. She was extraordinary in the debate, as she made her case against “the Equal Rights Amendment.” Thanks to her brilliant unceasing efforts, combined with the efforts of others standing up across the country, that destructive amendment was stopped. Typically, the Left didn’t quit — and they have continued their destructive agenda. Continue reading →
Dave’s article below, presents early declarations and statements connected with the beginnings of six of our ivy league colleges. The article explains, among other things, that the purpose of education in America was to train students to follow God’s instruction in the Bible — “the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning,” — in order to live right, and to maintain our “republican form of government.” See near the end of Blog 0126 for a discussion of what is meant by “republican form of government.” “Republican” in this context, and in this article, DOES NOT refer to a political party!

THE PURPOSE OF EDUCATION
by Dave Miller, Ph. D
The present period of American history surely will be shown to be a tragic time for education. Sinister forces essentially have hijacked American schools in order to make converts to their immoral, anti-Christian ideologies. They wish to convince young minds to accept their agenda and embrace their values. For example, homosexual activists wish to persuade young people that homosexuality ought to be accepted as legitimate sexual behavior—and even something that the student ought to try (e.g., Kertscher, 2006). The atheistic evolutionists seek to promote the theory of evolution as the correct view of origins, thereby dispelling belief in God and the Creation account of the Bible (Lyons and Butt, 2007). A host of additional advocates are working actively to articulate their own reasons for education.
In contrast to this subversion, most parents see education simply as part of the process that will prepare their children for adulthood. Typically, that preparation consists primarily of a “good education.” But why do parents want their children to go to school and get a “good” education? Most would answer: “so my child will be able to make a good living.” In other words, parents want their children to be able to secure a suitable job that will, in turn, secure their financial future. They want their children to be able to support themselves and their families. No doubt you have seen the commercials that correlate number of years of education with annual income.
But what about the intentions of those who founded the schools of America? Continue reading →
Monday through Friday last week I was watching three of our grandchildren and then went to a church camp out over the weekend. Great experiences! So I’m late on this blog. Sorry.

FOUNDING DECLARATIONS/PURPOSES OF AMERICAN COLLEGES (Yale, etc.)
“The Purpose of Education,” linked here, and which you can read in blog 0127, presents some history of America that students in our public schools never hear (or if ever, possibly in some classical education schools).
Below you will read declarations and purposes published from the beginnings of Harvard, William and Mary, Yale, Princeton, and Dartmouth. The author of the article states that “this listing could be significantly expanded.”
Education in this country did not begin as secular/humanist. It did not begin without any regard for God, or denial of His existence. Did you have a knee-jerk reaction reading those statements? Have you been thoroughly “conditioned” in school?
Schooling today in our country, and in recent history, has increasingly taught that America was never founded on Christian principles, and that those people who recognized God were very few in number, if they existed at all. Continue reading →
LAST EVENING’S SHOWING OF AGENDA 2 (in Colorado — see other states where Curtis Bowers will be appearing through July 2016)
Last evening Curtis Bowers and four of his nine children were at the Evergreen, Colorado showing of Agenda 2.
Other blogs (with links to his site) that speak of the summer 2016 Curtis Bowers Colorado tour: Blogs 0110 and 0111.
Up until around Thanksgiving, the Bowers family plans to continue their United States tour promoting the documentary Agenda 2 — revealing the truth about the deliberately-designed and executed plan to destroy our country.
You have two more chances (July 15 and 17) to meet Curtis Bowers in Colorado, listen to him speak, ask questions, and visit with him before and after the showing of his second documentary, Agenda 2.
I certainly hope it is not only “conservatives” who are upset with this directive.
Is our country so far gone that people will accept this directive from the President of the United States, to let transgenders pick their bathroom? Do we care what our children are taught and what they are exposed to?
Do parents realize that they are sending their children to schools where a person of the opposite sex could legally show up in a bathroom with their child, if we don’t stand up and fight? Why would parents send their children to schools where their children are asked if they think they should be a different sex than what is stated on their birth certificate? Why are parents sending their children to learn that anyone who disagrees with this “loving liberality” is hateful, and should be shut up?
Where is modesty? Do people care that innocence is being stolen from children of all ages and all religious (or non-religious) backgrounds? Where is decency? Why throw out all traditional sense of Judeo/Christian morals and propriety, in order to be politically correct and get out of the way for the new world order that does not believe in God? Why sacrifice our children?
Shouldn’t armies of parents (and other citizens) be paying attention to what has been happening in the schools for a long time, and what is happening to the children in the schools today?
