The poor scholarship of many Americans today and the level of understanding of the times is suggested in that of a teacher’s response to Common Core education. Admitting that she didn’t know much about it, yet she proclaimed, “O.K. It would put us all on the same level.”
The past has brought such government education programs as Goals 2000, School to Work, No Child Left Behind, and now the ultimate socialist education program, Common Core. If you’re familiar with the United Nations Agenda 21, you will readily understand how Common Core fits into the internationalist One World socialist goal.
As we wrote in our book, Which Way America?, the first chapter, “It Is Called Education,” (p. 1) “Education is so basic to the survival of our Republic that it should be assumed that enemies of our country and our freedoms would surely attack the training of our children as the future preservers of our liberty.”
From all we read about Common Core, it is total and thorough indoctrination of our nation’s children as conceived for use in government schools, preparing a people who have been deprived of our past heritage and ready to accept mind, body and spiritual control by their masters. The blessings of liberty and a knowledge of God and His salvation will have been erased—enslavement will have been accomplished by high-minded men who believe themselves superior to the masses.
If these statements seem extreme, consider some facts that have been presented by those who have examined and understand Common Core. Some will recognize the terms sustainable development, social justice, and collectivism as pertaining to Agenda 21 sponsored by the United Nations. “Agenda 21/UNESCO documents clearly state their intention to turn each student into a globalist who will accept smaller living space, residing in the stack and pack cities of the future, acceptance of drastic energy reduction, and the loss of Constitutional liberties.” (Dave Hodges, thecommonsenseshow.com; “Common Core, Rotten to the Core,” South Florida Weekender, 4/26 – 5/2/13).
Common Core is inferior collectivist brainwashing of our children in government schools. It is further “dumbing-down” of students supposedly to prepare them for the job market and community colleges, rather than for universities. The nationalized standards are inferior to current state standards. “Common Core is a set of math and English standards developed largely with Gates Foundation money and pushed by the Obama administration and the National Governors Association” (www.nationalreview.com 6/14/13).
“Globalist and Eugenics proponent, Bill Gates, is one of the Founding Fathers of the Common Core movement and its copyright holders, NGA/CCSSO. Gates donated about 25 million dollars to promote his version of global education,” donating millions to the National Governor’s Association to develop and implement “Education for All,” followed by a name change to Common Core. “No teacher and no school board member was asked to contribute to the Common Core standards. Nor was any State Legislature involved in the creation of this monstrosity. The Tenth Amendment is dead and individual freedom is being stamped out.” (Dave Hodges, “Rotten to the Core).
It is always interesting to this writer that such men as Bill Gates, who have made their millions in a nation based on free enterprise, should be proponents of the collectivization and globalization of these United States of America, a previously prosperous Republic, joining with socialist and communistic nations. Oftentimes otherwise intelligent men, by their actions, show themselves to be unappreciative and devoid of wisdom, disrespecting of our Founders and the millions who have given their lives to protect and preserve our freedoms. Quite likely it is considered by them to be further internationally financially lucrative. “For the love of money is the root of all [kinds of] evil”. (I Tim. 6:10)
From a spiritual standpoint, Common Core is certainly questionable. Agenda 21 speaks of “environmental and ethical awareness,” and states, ” To be effective, environmental and development education should deal with the dynamics of both the physical/biological and socio-economic environment and human (which may include spiritual) development, should be integrated in all disciplines, and should employ formal and non-formal methods.” Thus Common Core, referring often to “sustainable development” is closely associated with Agenda 21 which claims the training of our children spiritually. United Nations “spirituality” denounces Christianity while promoting GAIA which is earth worship and decidedly anti-human, actually placing animals, fish, and plants ahead of humans. Patriots should more and more recognize what has happened to America with the rejection of the Holy Bible, the Word of God as our Authority.
An illustration of what can occur in American schools if left uncontested is the leading of children in Ft. Collins, Colorado, Rocky Mountain High School just recently to repeat the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag in Arabic, concluding with “One nation under Allah,” broadcast over the loud speaker system. Thankfully, it has brought an outrage of complaints from parents. Understandably, there are un-American teachers in our country who will try any avenue to brainwash our children into the acceptance of their agenda. Alert patriots must have them ousted. If this cannot be accomplished, parents should recognize but one solution—to remove their children from these un-American indoctrination centers.

Common Core is another government program to further indoctrinate American school children to conform to the visionary future socialist New World Order. Its multi-million dollar preparation was funded especially by the (Bill) Gates Foundation, fitting the goal of the United Nations Agenda 21, whereby a greatly decreased population would be controlled by the “elites” and animals would be given preference over God’s human creation.
Over 40 states were “bought-out” by the Obama administration through the granting of $4 billion conditional on their acceptance of Common Core. Texas, Alaska, Virginia and Nebraska declined, while Minnesota adopted the English, but not the math standards. However, Common Core is collapsing in Indiana through the efforts of mothers who realized that the program was actually lowering standards in their children’s schools. (www.nationalreview.com 6/14/13).
“Common Core standards define what every school child [nationwide] should learn each year, from first grade through twelfth, and the package includes teacher evaluations tied to federally funded tests designed to ensure that schools teach to Common Core.” (Ibid, 6/14/13). Families readily attest to the fact that their children often differ in various respects, but the blinded socialist can only see children forced into identical molds.
The Republican National Committee met in Los Angeles on April 12 unanimously adopting a resolution critical of the Common Core nationalized educational scheme as “an inappropriate overreach to standardize and control the education of our children so they will conform to a preconceived ‘normal.'” They favor “broad education choices to parents and children at the state and local level” (The New American, “Inside Track,” p. 6, 5/6/13).
Each of the government education programs of the past originated from the United Nations UNESCO. After spending billions of dollars on these programs, each one failed in student performance. “For example, SAT Reading scores, for the high school class of 2012, reached a 40+ year low since the implementation of No Child Left Behind. Every one of these programs is a propaganda tool designed to dumb down our children and these programs are being remarkably effective to this end.” (Dave Hodges, thecommonsenseshow.com, “Common Core, Rotten To the Core,” South Florida Weekender, 4/26-5/2/13).
For all those who honor the Word of God, it is obvious that “children are a heritage of the Lord,” (Psalm 127:3) and as such, parents are responsible for their proper teaching and training. We are charged with teaching our children “diligently” of God’s Word (Deut. 6:7). Nowhere does God allow for children to be indoctrinated into a mold inconsistent with that which we have been promised as a free people. We believe that our American freedoms are a wonderful provision of God, not to be taken lightly, and that we are not to submit to ungodly and unconstitutional demands. “Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God “- Benjamin Franklin.
“If the government legislates against student choice, the next step is civil disobedience on behalf of your children who are not the property of the faceless and unaccountable demagogues behind Common Core” (Dave Hodges, South Florida Weekender, 5/3-5/9/13.
The New American, 5/6/13, p. 6, summarizes: “Critics say it is essential that Common Core be stopped at the state level, even if it means turning down taxpayer dollars being unconstitutionally doled out by the federal government. Opposition to the national agenda has been growing fast, too, with homeschoolers, conservatives, many teachers, libertarians, Tea Party groups, lawmakers and more all rallying to stop the plan before it takes root.” Plans are for its complete implementation by 2015.
“From a Founding Father perspective of how dangerous consolidation of power is, putting the education of our children and ‘all future generations of children’ into the hands of one centralized controlling power is foolish at best. For that reason alone, the Constitution Party of Florida does not support Common Core” (www.cpflorida.com 5/9/13).
To better understand Common Core, it is suggested that concerned patriots read further about Agenda 21 and its implementation in America, masquerading as “sustainable development,” and being imposed upon Americans at state and local levels. My book, Which Way America? Chapter 14, “Agenda 21 – The Ultimate Socialist Scheme,” gives further enlightening details. It can be ordered direct from the undersigned.
