One of the biggest problems we have in our nation today with a large portion of society leaning way too far to the left is the result of our so-called education system. Most of the professors in our colleges and universities lean way too far to the left. They teach that all of the world's problems are caused by America's free market system. They cannot prove this with any facts as all the facts prove differently.
Our education system continues down the path of obsolescence simply because it is failing to correctly educate our children. The teachers unions oppose any attempt to improve the teaching process. The teachers unions have tried to outlaw homeschooling because homeschooled kids are so much more educated than any public school child. I will be doing my radio program on (Tuesday @ 4:00 pm PST) about our education system in a couple of weeks. The information that we will present will be astonishing to say the least.
In February there will be a teachers conference in Atlanta, the Association of Teacher Educators annual conference. Their keynote speaker will be Bill Ayers. How can a person that has admitted being a domestic terrorist be a professor in any college in America is beyond me. He was a member of the Weather Underground during the Vietnam War. He was involved in the "Days of Rage" in Chicago in 1969 and became a fugitive after an accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion that killed three Underground members in 1970 as they attempted to manufacture a bomb and it exploded prematurely. He has not renounced his activities with the Underground. He simply redirected his approach to his radicalism. He was eventually arrested but was released on a technicality. He commented on his release; "Guilty as hell, free as a bird. Is this a great country or what?" He is also pictured standing on an American flag. This man, or anyone who has the same mindset, should never be allowed to teach in any place of education in America.
Many other professors fail students simply because they have different points of views. If a student holds a Biblical point of view on marriage, they will be vilified in a public university or college. If one holds a view that illegal immigration should be stopped, they are called a racist. Even though the principles that our Founders used to live by and establish our nation and its government made America the most powerful and prosperous and generous nation this world has ever seen, it is called the cause of all the problems in the world.
There was a strike by the teachers unions in Chicago in September. They have the worst success rate of any school district in the nation yet they wanted raises. They got the raises and then in November many of those same teachers attended the Midwest Marxism Conference held at Northwestern University in Chicago.
The topics of the conference were:
Crisis & Resistance
The Meaning of Marxism
The Flint Sit-down Strikes & The Founding of the UAW
From Apartheid Schools to the New Jim Crow: Racism, USA
The Democrats: A Critical History
Russia: A Case Study in Workers Power & Revolution
Socialists & Trade Unions
Class, Race & the Civil Rights movement
Education & Capitalism
Lenin’s Theory of the Revolutionary Party
Marxism & Women’s Liberation
One has to ask the question "Why are our teachers learning Marxism to teach it?" Has not history taught us that that system of government does nothing but oppress the populace and create millions of people that know nothing more than abject poverty? Why is it being taught instead of what made America great, capitalism?
Here is another example of the complete incompetence of our public school system. This is a true story about a teacher called Tom Dromgoole. This story just hit the newsstands last week. Tom Dromgoole is a New York teacher making $100,049 per year. I’m sure you’re thinking he must be a very hard-working teacher who picks up tons of extracurricular activities. You would be right if those extracurricular activities included a union representative job paying $50,000 a year, while causing him only to be able to teach one class a day. After his class is over, Dromgoole reports to his union job. As a result, the school district has to hire a substitute teacher to teach the rest of his classes.
The taxpayers of New York are getting hammered with paying for two teachers when they only need one. The New York Post reports that 1,500 teachers are currently doing what Dromgoole is doing and costing the city 9 million dollars a year in substitute teacher salaries.
Reached Friday outside his Brooklyn townhouse, Dromgoole brushed past a reporter who asked about his UFT work, saying, “No comment.”
The Post confirms that Dromgoole isn’t the only one of the 1,500 teachers getting a deal this cushy.
The DOE lets 40 experienced teachers collect top pay and fringe benefits, but work just one class period a day. Source:
our nation began in the 1600's the education of our children was required
so that they would be able to read and understand the principles laid
out in the Bible and if a politician attempted to establish a law that
was contrary to the Word of God, the people would know that the law
would violate the principles of God and they would be able to oppose
it. Here is a quote
from my book, Defining America's Exceptionalism, concerning the basis of our education system: " The first laws providing public education for all children were passed in 1642 in Massachusetts and in 1647 in Connecticut and it was called the “Old Deluder Satan Law.” These colonists believed that the proper protection from civil abuses could only be achieved by eliminating Bible illiteracy.
"It being one chief project of that old deluder, Satan, to keep men from the knowledge of Scriptures, as in former time. . . . It is therefore ordered . . [that] after the Lord hath increased [the settlement] to the number of fifty householders, [they] shall then forthwith appoint one within their town, to teach all such children as shall resort to him, to write and read. . . . And it is further ordered, that where any town shall increase to the number of one hundred families or householders, they shall set up a grammar school . . . to instruct youths, so far as they may be fitted for the university."
In 80% of the schools in Texas and 46 States they are using a curriculum called CSCOPE.
This curriculum is islam centered. It teaches that allah is God almighty. Try teach that the God of the Bible is God Almighty and see how far you get. It teaches the students about mohammed. Try teaching about Jesus Christ and see what happens. They have the students memorize a verse out of the quran. Try having them learn a verse out of the Bible and see how many lawsuits are filed within the week.
In CSCOPE World History/Social Studies, Lesson 2, Unit 3 under the heading, “Classical
Rome,” students are told that Christianity is a “cult,” and given a link to a BBC article saying the early Christians were “cannibals,” i.e. the Eucharist, which students are then led to conclude is the reason for Roman persecution.
Sources within the Texas education system recently informed WND that Wicca, thought by many to be akin to witchcraft, was being taught in CSCOPE curriculum alongside Christianity, but was removed before the news media could access it, a fact which represents one of the biggest concerns for followers of CSCOPE.
CSCOPE apparently immediately deletes controversial content once leaked, making it impossible at any one time to know exactly what students are learning and in what order. Defenders of this process say that this responsiveness to public scrutiny is a form of self-auditing.
WND has documented a strong link between Ayers and CSCOPE heavyweight and Common Core advocate Linda Darling-Hammond. An unrepentant terror group member (and known Obama supporter, financier, and ghost-writer), William “Bill” Ayers was part of the notorious Weather Underground which attempted to bomb the Pentagon in the seventies. After 9/11, Ayers was interviewed by the New York Times, and was quoted as saying he had “no regrets.” Source:
It isn't hard to see that our education system has deteriorated into an indoctrination program for a one world system. All the things that have made America great are either ignored or they are excoriated. If we continue to allow this in our public schools our children will never know the truth about America and what made her great.
A New York public school teacher who advised a school Bible Study club has filed a civil rights lawsuit against her school district after she was forced to remove all religious content from her classroom — including a quote from former President Ronald Reagan. The quote was: “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under.” Source:

I believe that we have come to that time. Our nation has forgotten that we are One Nation Under God. Our children are not being taught what needs to be taught for a proper education and their parents don't seem to care. The most important thing that we need to remember is God established this nation and has protected and prospered it all these years.
Do we really believe that we can simply ignore the God that has preserved us and made us the most powerful nation in the world? Only a fool could think such a thing and our nation is full of these fools. What will it take to change not just the minds but the hearts of America?
There are too many that will not allow this to continue. There are too many that still hold what is America dear to simply set back and watch America fade into history. We will prevail.
