ALTERNATIVE MATH – SHORT FILM
Here’s an example of what teachers might experience in this age of, “All participants receive a trophy.”
“Is racism enshrined in the United States Constitution? How could the same Founding Fathers who endorsed the idea that all men are created equal also endorse the idea that some men are not? The answer provided in this video by Carol Swain, former professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University, may surprise you.” Click here to take a brief survey about this video.
“This is one of a series of films produced by the Extension Department of Harding College to create a deeper understanding of what has made America the finest place in the world to live.”
This cartoon and others are made fun of and cut down, but the fact remains it was not “propaganda” in the sense of telling lies. It was getting a message out in response to the tearing down of America that was going on — a tearing down that continues to this day.
Cartoon predicts the future more than 60 years ago. This is amazing insight!
“This cartoon predicts the future more than 60 years ago. You won’t see anything like this taught in schools today. If you like political cartoons with insight, this is one of the best ever made. If you worry this country is losing freedoms by the day, you are not alone. They tried to warn us in this political cartoon 60 years ago.”
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 Jack:
[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 →
From the story told by one of Bundy’s attorneys: “Over a year later, Cliven was arrested when he got off a plane in Oregon on his way to visit his sons camped on the Malheur wildlife refuge who were defending the rights of some Oregon ranchers who had been unjustly imprisoned on trumped up charges. That stand-off, in which one of the Bundy supporters, LaVoy Finicum, was killed in cold blood by an FBI agent, went before a jury.”

Mark Herr here shares a video history of the Bundy Standoff
Mark Herr, President and co-founder of Center for Self Governance (CSG), made a video history of a standoff between people and the government. People gathered to support Cliven Bundy’s right to graze on the land that he and his ancestors have been grazing on for generations.
I had the privilege of being in some of Mark Herr’s CSG classes, during the time of the Bundy standoff. Mark is one of the brave people in our country, who sacrifices most of his life in order to stand up for our liberty, and educate others how to stand up.
Excerpts from information in PragerU March 12, 2018 email:
If one big government is bad, imagine how much worse two big governments would be. That’s the reality that millions of people in Europe are faced with today: their own nation’s bloated government and the super-national, money-gobbling, regulation-producing government of Europe known as the European Union. In this week’s video, UK Member of the European Parliament Nigel Farage explains how the meddling bureaucracy of the European Union is destroying Europe – one policy at a time.

Fred Holden forwarded a letter from Scott G. Bullock, President and General Counsel for Institute for Justice. An excerpt from that letter:
“The Institute for Justice is headed to the big screen this spring! Little Pink House, the story of IJ client Susette Kelo’s historic battle to save her home from eminent domain abuse, will make its debut in multiple theaters across the country this April. Starring two-time Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener and Emmy nominee Jeanne Tripplehorn, and featuring cameos of several IJ staffers, this film captures the real-life drama of IJ’s work—and the courage all IJ clients share in fighting for their rights against seemingly insurmountable odds.”
Next month (April 20, 2018) a movie (“Little Pink House”) will be released to some theaters. In Denver it will be released May 4-10. See other release dates near the end of this article.
“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. “
A few notes from the beginning of the State of the Union Address
President Trump began his 2018 State of the Union Address by sharing acts of heroism that were revealed in times of crisis in our country this past year. Several heroes were in the gallery with the First Lady.
He spoke of trials, including the wounding of Congressman Steve Scalise from Louisiana. He shared gratitude for “the heroic efforts of the Capitol Police officers, the Alexandria Police, and the doctors, nurses, and paramedics who saved his life and the lives of many others; some in this room. ”
“In the aftermath of that terrible shooting, we came together, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people. But it is not enough to come together only in times of tragedy. Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. This is really the key. These are the people we were elected to serve. (Applause.)”
President Trump said that since the election: there have been 2.4 million new jobs (including 200,00 new jobs in manufacturing). We are finally seeing rising wages after “years of wage stagnation.”
Unemployment claims are at a 45-year low. African American and Hispanic American unemployment is at lowest rate every recorded.
Small businesses are increasing and growing “at an all-time high.” Stock market has gained $8 trillion in value. Americans’ 401(k), retirement, pension and college savings accounts “have gone through the roof.”
As promised 11 months ago, we have “enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.” — “tremendous relief for the middle class and small business.”
