From Gramma Grizzly
I have always done my best to protect my children, my grandchildren and the children of others — the same as so many other people across this country have been and are doing. That protective spirit is certainly not limited to parents or grandparents.
Children are not safe in schools, whether or not the schools are public. The playground and the halls of the schools are not the only dangers to students, and students are not the only ones in danger.
One focus of this site is the Colorado Jefferson County Public School District, but sadly, the problems are not confined to this school district. My plan is to share information about our school district and the rest of the country and the world.
This site is meant to be one of your resources to become more equipped with information that will help you protect your families, and protect people outside your family.
What children are taught in the classroom affects all of us.
We must first learn what is really going on, before we can begin to be part of the solution, and less a part of the problem.
Here’s to truth.
Gramma Grizzly (Donna Jack)
“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.” — Ronald Reagan; 40th president of the U.S. (b. 1911 d. 2004)
“You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” — Nikita Khrushchev – 1959
“To change a free nation into a captive nation of robots and zombies, indoctrinate them with what to think instead of teaching them how to think, while removing all moral absolutes.” — Donna H. Hearne – The Long War: Everything You Need to Know to Win the War! Common Core, page 1. First printing 2015.
H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury in April 1924
that the aim of public education is not:
“…to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence… Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim… is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States… ”
[This was sent to me from a life-long girlfriend who lives in Evanston, Illinois.]
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace.
These words appear on the page preceding the Contents page in the instructional book for teachers, called Teaching as a Subversive Activity:
“Thank God there are no free schools or printing;
. . . for learning has brought disobedience and heresy
into the world, and printing has divulged them . . .
God keep us from both.”
Sir William Berkeley
Governor of Virginia, d. 1677

Some quotations by Whittaker Chambers, a former communist.
He testified against Alger Hiss, a fellow communist —
and wrote of his life in the book Witness.
“Communism succeeds because most people who support communism aren’t communists.” — Whittaker Chambers (quoted by Jim Simpson in the movie Agenda — by Curtis Bowers)
“It is popular to call it a crisis of the Western world. It is in fact a crisis of the whole world. Communism, which claims to be a solution of the crisis, is itself a symptom and an irritant of the crisis.” — Whittaker Chambers
“I know that I am leaving the winning side for the losing side, but it is better to die on the losing side than to live under Communism.” — Whittaker Chambers
“Experience had taught me that innocence seldom utters outraged shrikes. Guilt does. Innocence is a mighty shield, and the man or woman covered by it, is much more likely to answer calmly: ‘My life is blameless. Look into it, if you like, for you will find nothing.’ That is the tone of innocence.” — Whittaker Chambers
Definition of socialism:
1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
Definition of communism
The definition of communism is a system where all property is public and people work and are given things by the government according to their needs.
An example of communism is the governing system in Cuba where the government controls everything and doles out benefits such as money, health care and food.
The Naked Communist by W. Cleon Skousen, pp. 53-54 [posted 2016-06-06]
[Note: When W. Cleon Skousen, was a former FBI agent, he studied Communist philosophy with other FBI agents. He originally published his book in 1958.]
“He [Marx] argued that no private individual should get the profits from something which many people were required to produce.”
“Marx and Engles did not believe that wages were adequate compensation for labor performed unless the workers received all the proceeds from the sale of the commodity. Since the hands of the workers produced the commodity, they believed the workers should receive all the commodity was worth. . . in the near future the working class should rise up and seize the factories or means of production and operate them as their own.”
“. . . All wealth is created by the worker. Capital creates nothing . . . “
The Naked Communist by W. Cleon Skousen, pp. 54-55 [posted 2016-06-06]
“In due time there would be sufficient hatred, resentment and class antagonism to motivate the workers in forming militant battalions to overthrow their oppressors by violence so that the means of production and all private property could be seized by the workers and operated for their own advantage.
“It is at this point that Communists and Socialists take different forks of the road. The Socialists have maintained from the beginning that centralized control of all land and industry can be achieved by peaceful legislation. Marx denounced this as a pipe dream. He held out for revolution. Nevertheless, he was quick to see some advantage in pushing forward any legislation which concentrated greater economic power in the central government. But he did not look upon such minor ‘victories of the Socialist’ as anything more than a psychological softening up for the revolution which was to come.
“Marx was particularly emphatic that this revolution must be completely ruthless to be successful. It must not be a ‘reform’ because reforms always end up by ‘substituting one group of exploiters for another’ and therefore the reformers feel ‘no need to destroy the old state machine; whereas the proletarian revolution removes all groups of exploiters from power and places in power the leader of the toilers and exploited . . . therefore it cannot avoid destroying the old state machine and replacing it by a new one.’” [Quotes in the paragraph above are from “PROBLEMS OF LENINISM,” By Joseph Stalin, pp. 16-17.]
