From Roberta’s letter:  “All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, . . . ”

The hateful supplemental material (Educator Resources) — recently recommended by Superintendent Jason Glass, for K-12 teachers in Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools —  is only an expansion of what public school children have been fed for years (this includes the teaching of AP U.S. History in recent years).

At the end of this blog post, is   1)  how to write and send letters to the editor; and 2) other blogs on this site, that talk about the superintendent’s new controversial resource list and curriculumNote:  The School Board of Education is supposed to decide on curriculum to be used in the classes — not the superintendent3)  list of blogs on this site about the AP U.S. History mess.

Trump Era Chaos”
Letter by Roberta Sutton
_____________________________________________________

We’ve all noticed what chaos has emerged since Donald Trump’s election.

Right away there was a march of women against Trump who were wearing “Vagina Hats.”  There has been the surfacing of Antifa with their masked assailants, and their destruction and mayhem in Berkeley.  The NFL players have complaints about our police, and because of that, they  refuse to honor our nation and its flag and anthem.  All of them “attack” the President.

All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, but it was stirred up and brought to the fore because someone with a different belief than theirs was in charge—and Trump was going to be leading the nation in a different direction—one they didn’t agree with.

Dr. Kim Holmes will be speaking at Colorado Christian University (CCU) this coming Monday evening.  Over a year ago he wrote a book The Closing of the Liberal Mind:  How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left.  Groupthink and intolerance are what is “taught” in our society, through government schools and the media in general.  It has increasingly moved into law.

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.

At the end of this blog piece, you can watch an early 2016  YouTube with Kim Holmes talking about his new book.

Two years, one month, and one week ago, on July 28, 2015, I posted my first blog on this website.

A listing of all the posts can be found in the Table of Contents — each entry in the Table of Contents has a link to the corresponding blog post.

The Home Page shows what is wrong with education —
and 
the most critical thing to understand
in order to reverse the decline in education today – and to save our nation.

How do we fix the rapid decline in the education of too many people who do not graduate, and too many who do graduate from High Schools, Colleges and Universities?

It is not the condition of the buildings and other facilities — it is not the talent and good intentions and dedication of highly trained and competent teachers, administrators, counselors, teacher librarians, and all the support staff — it is not the freedom to choose the school a child attends (especially if all schools have Type #2 education) — it is not the amount of interest of the parents, or of the students — it is not computerizing all education and gathering more and more data on children, families, teachers, etc. — it is not simply emphasis on certain subjects like sports, music, art, science, technology, mathematics, language arts, reading, writing — it is not focus on becoming a global citizen — it is not in forcing all students to accept everything that students do and believe (unless they are politically incorrect).  Standardizing all attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviors is not the answer, either — and training children to want to change their sexual identity will not improve education standards.

The thing that really matters is THE TYPE OF EDUCATION BEING TAUGHT IN THE CURRICULUM — THE CONTENT.  Type #2 education is taking over our country — to the detriment of everyone.  We need a shift back to Type #1.

Our right to own property and be able to make decisions about our own property, is shrinking at an alarming rate.  When property rights are destroyed, also destroyed are “free enterprise, the American way of life, and ultimately Freedom itself.”

June 21, 2017, Dr. Michael Coffman died.  His passing was a great loss to the battle for our freedom as a nation.

AMERICAN HEALTHCARE IN CRISIS: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
http://tipofthespear.net/spearofliberty/2017/07/04/american-health-care-in-crisis-problems-and-solutions/

We are truly at a crossroads in American healthcare.  The seemingly endless layers of regulations and requirements, as well as the overhead for the bureaucracy itself, are crushing it. 
 
Our healthcare system has become rife with corruption and inefficiency.  Special interests lobby politicians to force you to buy their services and pay for subsidies, while politicians leverage their influence to garner votes and enrich themselves and their friends. 
 
Doctors and patients have been reduced to being mere commodities. 
 
When Obamacare was being pushed through Congress, we were told premiums would go down; that we would get to keep our doctor; and that visits to the ER would decrease.  Exactly the opposite happened.  The government has exacerbated, if not created, this crisis.

Introduction to “North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.”

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Said by Ronald Reagan – quotations by Ronald Reagan
40th president of US (1911 – 2004)

We must do our best to stand up for freedom, and protect our children from the “one world” “godless” teachings that are being infused into the minds of students in almost all public schools, and in many private schools — including Christian schools and other religious schools.  It begins in nurseries, pre-schools and day-cares – and continues in all forms of public (and even private) education – even at Christian universities and seminaries.  The popular media in our country continues the narrative of one world without God.

“Without God, all things are permitted.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Eliminate recognition of the existence and intervention of God, and you have totalitarian states.

A friend of mine who escaped Communist China tells a similar story as the young lady from North Korea — this similar story exists across the world — repeated accounts of the fear, brain-washing, and brutality like this young Korean witnessed and experienced as she grew up under Communism in China.

North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.

 Listen to this dear young lady who is a refugee from North Korea.  Her account is heartbreaking…and a foreboding warning to us.  Centralized control leads to uncontrolled abuses.

0221_Part 8 HUD/AFFH–June 27, 2017_letter to County Commissioners before their vote

Donna Jack
June 28, 2017

This is a letter to the Jeffco County Commissioners June 27, 2017 — given them yesterday, before I testified:

Commissioners – I appreciate the opportunity to speak.

Commissioner Szabo asked me to sort through colliding opinions about whether or not to accept HOME and CDBG money.

People on both sides are convinced they are looking out for people in this county – both sides are aware of a shortage of housing for seniors, low income working people, etc.

After weeks of interviews and study, I recommend voting against accepting HOME and CDBG money.

__________________

The people I talked with in our county government are working well over 8-hour days, to bring people out of poverty.  They are providing personal counseling, and schooling to train people to become literate and competent, so they can qualify for better jobs.  Some is financed with the help of HUD money.

___________________

People who don’t want us to accept the funding, are also working tirelessly.  They research and inform, and find money to replace HOME and CDBG money. They believe that the federal government should get out of the housing business, so we can have a voice in where and how we live.

Joseph Goebbels — propaganda minister

Joseph Goebbels’ quote is at the end of this blog —  it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people.  You can read it in quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.

Blacklisted by History, is a book written by M. Stanton Evans
— Below is a video in which Mr. Evans tells about his book.

This video link has a lot of information about Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies.  One of the things you will find in this YouTube, is a summary of things that have been made public in recent years — things that verify the extensive Communist infiltration in our government that Joe McCarthy was trying to expose to the public.
