Team Snyder: Administrative Agents for Obama’s Common Core Standards
This is a “reinvention” lesson that should scare the snot out of parents of school children. These are just some of the examples of a common core worksheet.
(1) The president makes sure the laws of the country are fair. (2) The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation. (3) The commands of Government officials must be “obeyed” by all. Sounds like Socialism indoctrination to me! What you say?
The Common Core agenda aims to frame the educational paradigm with a progressive agenda world view, limit parental involvement in order to take control of students within the system, and even record children’s personal data into a database (religion, etc) so they can follow your child as they grow – beyond their classroom. ~ Diane Ravitch “against” Common Core.
She writes in The Washington Post, “They were developed by an organization called Achieve and the National Governors Association, both of which were generously funded by the Gates Foundation. There was minimal public engagement in the development of the Common Core. Their creation was neither grassroots nor did it emanate from the states.” Instead, Common Core is being driven by policymakers in D.C.
Diane Ravitch is a historian of education, an educational policy analyst, and a research professor at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Previously, she was a U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education.
She was appointed to public office by Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Secretary of Education Richard Riley appointed her to serve as a member of the National Assessment Governing Board, which supervises the National Assessment of Educational Progress; she was a member of NAGB from 1997 to 2004.
“The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
President Obama and U.S. Secretary of Education Duncan often say that the Common Core standards were developed by the states and voluntarily adopted by them. This is not true.
They were developed by an organization called “Achieve” and the “National Governors Association,” both of which were generously funded by the Gates Foundation. There was minimal public engagement in the development of the Common Core. Their creation was neither grassroots nor did it emanate from the states.
Gates money is more deeply rooted than one might think
On March 17, 2014, the North Denver News revealed that Gates spending on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is not likely mere millions, but billions:
Mackinac Policy Conference 2013 Common Theme Common Core
Governor Rick Snyder and national school reformer Michelle Rhee urged policymakers and financial donors Thursday to help improve Michigan’s education system.
Rhee, a former Washington, D.C., schools chancellor and a Democrat backed Snyder by encouraging Michigan’s GOP-dominated Legislature not to stall the implementation of the Common Core curriculum standards.
Common Core get’s Engler – Snyder other so-called Republicans Support
On May 1, former Michigan Gov. John Engler—now the president of the Business Roundtable, a Washington-based group of business leaders—took to the radio show of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a fellow Republican, to defend the standards.
And soon thereafter, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, another Republican, reiterated his common-core support in an appearance in that state with Secretary Duncan.
Republican Controlled Michigan Senate Gives Go-Ahead to Common Core Funding
The Senate on Thursday approved a resolution authorizing state spending on the “Communist Core” standards with a voice vote. That allowed hesitant majority Republicans to OK the standards without taking a recorded roll call vote.
Nationally, the Republican National Committee has officially condemned the standards, while several states are in the process of potentially withdrawing from the core. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, has requested that a Senate subcommittee handling education end federal meddling in standards and assessment.
Common Core: The Sixteen Billion Dollar Educational Scam
The government is planning to spend about 16 BILLION dollars to implement programs that are basically the same as those paid for in the 1950s.
Many have been given the false impression that Common Core State Standards and the International Baccalaureate programs will reform and improve education.
However, these two newest educational policies are an extension of old policies that weakened the American educational system and destroyed its international reputation for excellence.

Quotes on the Common Core Standards:
Most of us who lived through the Hitler era remember how British Prime Minister Chamberlain gushed how great Hitler’s Youth Corps was, much like those who support Common Core today. ~ Donald Conkey Cherokee Tribune
Remember the quote by Hitler, ‘Give me your children and in 10 years I’ll change society?’ The Obama administration intends to do just that. ~ Elois Zeanah
Obama Core is a comprehensive plan to dumb down schoolchildren so they will be obedient servants of the government and to indoctrinate them to accept the leftwing view of America and its history. ~ Phyllis Schafly
Your child or grandchild will not be able to escape Common Core materials that are anti-Christian, anti-capitalism, and anti-America. Or that are pro-homosexuality, illegal immigration, unions, environmentalism, gun control, feminism and social justice. ~ Elois Zeanah
If this isn’t Nazism, Communism, Marxism and all the ‘ism’s’ I don’t know what is. ~ Christina Michas
Today’s teachers and psychologists are NOT being trained to educate students academically or to counsel and help people cope with their problems, but to influence their political views. Does it sound like we’re becoming Castro’s Cuba? I can tell you from personal experience that we’re already there. ~ New Hampshire Tea Party
The missiles are coming not just from the left but also the right. As we fight this insidious menace to our children and to our families and that’s exactly what it is we are going to have a difficult time discerning who our allies are.” ~ Glenn Beck
Why didn’t Huckabee “get it” when so many other Americans figured it out and tried to tell him? Huckabee did not just quietly support CCS; he vociferously supported CCS as evidenced by the articles listed at the bottom of this page. ~ Lone Star Tea Party
Karl Marx describes in his communist manifesto, the ten steps necessary to destroy a free enterprise system and replace it with a system of omnipotent government power, so as to effect a communist socialist state.
The Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto
Saul Alinsky’s 8 levels of control that must be obtained to create a socialist imperial state…
1. Health care – Control health care and you control the people. (ObamaCare/SnyderCaid)
2. Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3. Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4. Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school. The implementation of the “common core” educational standards fly’s right in the face of this step!
7. Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools. Also attack religious points of view as being discriminatory.
8. Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take taxes. Divide people by race, sexual orientations and religious views.
