ABCs of DumbDown: PASSING OF THE TORCH

Charlotte’s interview with Jeff Rense (HERE) contains her call on the younger generation to save America by taking the battle to their respective state legislatures and getting legislation passed to abolish the 50 state departments of education which now control education 100%, and which are in partnership with the corporations. She explains exactly why this MUST be done. She calls on restoring academic education at the local level with elected superintendents and elected school boards making ALL decisions related to our children’s education.

American education researchers/writers/speakers have, over a period of fifty years, provided enough history of the deliberate dumbing down of america to sink several ships.

A special thanks to Jeff Rense, http://www.rense.com, without whom we researchers/activists could never have succeeded in getting the word out regarding the crucial importance of education in the preservation of a nation’s freedom.

Charlotte speaks only for herself and a few other leading old-time researchers regarding this passing of the torch to the younger generation.

If anyone involved in the project to pull down the state departments of education needs help from any of us, all they need do is ask for it.  We are here to help, but not to lead.

The leadership is now in your hands.

Good luck and may the Good Lord bless your efforts to save our children’s minds and souls, and to provide them with a classical/academic education without which they will have no upward mobility, and without which our nation cannot survive as a free country/constitutional republic.

Landmark UN Resolution Urges States to Monitor and Regulate Private Education Providers

2 July 2015

Press release

“(Geneva, 2 July 2015) Eight international civil society organisations today welcomed a landmark resolution of the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) urging States to regulate and monitor private education providers and recognising the potential “wide-ranging impact of the commercialization of education on the enjoyment of the right to education”.

The HRC is the leading global inter-governmental political body dealing with human rights. In the resolution adopted by consensus of its 47 members, the HRC has, for the first time, responded to the growing phenomenon of privatisation and commercialisation of education.”

Maine Governor Paul LePage Requests Opinion of Maine Supreme Court Over Veto Dispute and the Legislature’s Adjournment

BDN reports “Gov. Paul LePage’s contention that the Legislature is adjourned and that he has the right to hold 70 enacted bills until lawmakers reconvene was rebuffed on two fronts late Friday afternoon, including  an opinion from Democratic Attorney General Janet Mills.

The opinion, which was requested by Sens. Dawn Hill, D-Cape Neddick, and Tom Saviello, R-Wilton, has been circulated to a range of lawmakers and the governor’s office. It is unlikely to sway LePage, who has said he will ask the Maine Supreme Judicial Court to rule on the matter if it is not otherwise resolved.  Read more HERE.

The Maine Wire reports “A Breakdown of the Veto Dispute.” Read more HERE.

7-24-15 – PPH article “Groups weigh in with state’s high court on LePage’s veto dispute with Legislature”, read here, and updated to this article, read here.

BDN reports “Gov. Paul LePage, legislative leaders, the attorney general and several advocacy groups made their cases to the state’s highest court Friday, submitting detailed legal briefs in a dispute over whether 65 bills are in law or vetoed.

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court will consider the written briefs ahead of oral arguments scheduled for next week.” Read more HERE.

GOVERNOR’S REQUEST FOR OPINION OF THE JUSTICES

On Friday, July 17, 2015, at 12:40 p.m., the Governor of the State of Maine, Paul R. LePage, submitted the following questions to the Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court pursuant to Article VI, Section 3 of the Maine Constitution:

  1. What form of adjournment prevents the return of a bill to the Legislature as contemplated by the use of the word, adjournment, in Art. IV, pt. 3, §2 of the Maine Constitution?
  2. Did any of the action or inaction by the Legislature trigger the constitutional three-day procedure for the exercise of the Governor’s veto?
  3. Are the 65 bills I returned to the Legislature on July 16 properly before that body for reconsideration?

Documents:

The court has set a deadline of noon Wednesday for response briefs, and will hear oral arguments from the governor and the Legislature Friday, July 31.

This is an interesting article by the PPH “Denied public funds, Maine Republican House leader, Kenneth Fredette, to tap private funding for lawyer in veto case.” Read more HERE.

State of Maine Legislature Glossary of Terms: ADJOURNMENT SINE DIE – Adjournment Without Day. This is the final adjournment of the session when all business has been completed.

ORDERS ADJOURN WITHOUT DAY, Thursday, July 16, 2015 – S.O. 24 and S.O. 25, click here.

To note* – The Legislature had no authority to re-convene after June 17th based on Title 3, sec. 2 which states they must adjourn on the 3rd Wednesday of June, unless they extend the days. They didn’t extend the days on June 17th.

Courtesy of Lise from Maine…
“In Article IV, Part Third, Section 1 of the Constitution of the State of Maine it says that the Legislature must establish a law citing “limitations” regarding time frames of the first and 2nd legislative sessions.

That law is Title 3, MRS, Section 2 where it states that the first legislative session will end on the third Wednesday of June unless there is an emergency and they can extend it for 5 days excluding Sundays, and if there is “another” emergency, then they can extend it for another 5 days and must extend an extra day for the Governor to bring forth his objections, if any. This is a total of 11 days only and no more.

They ONLY get 11 days total as they can’t go on forever. There must be an ending according to law and there is.

The 3rd Wednesday in June of this year is June 17th. The legislature did NOT extend any days on June 17th which means that they were adjourned (finished) according to Title 3, MRS, Section 2. The law says what it says and means what it means. No getting around it.

On June 18th the legislature met again unlawfully and extended their session for 5 days by those present and voting.They were NOT allowed to do this as it violates Title 3, MRS, Section 2which is a constitutional mandate. They had NO delegation of authority to proceed to meet on June 18th, and this constitutes criminal activity by all those voting on that day and subject to impeachment.

Anything they did AFTER June 17th is fraud and treason. They either had the authority or they didn’t. In this situation, they did NOT have any authority to proceed beyond June 17th. Plain and simple it was over on June 17th.

This is very simple to follow, and it is short and sweet and to the point.

Abuse Of Power Running Rampant In Lisbon (Maine)!

Courtesy of Larry Fillmore
The Lisbon Reporter

“Ever wonder how Chairman Pesce can ignore the Charter and Council Working Rules?

It is very simple because he can. Who is going to enforce the numerous violations of both the Charter and Council Working Rules? Chairman Pesce can have the police remove anyone from the council meetings but members of the public cannot ask the police to remove the Chair. This is called absolute power and violations of this are called abuse of power/position. But, then again who is going to enforce these violations, no one.”

ABCs of DumbDown: THE PEOPLE, LLC FILE SUIT

If you, the reader, can help People LLC financially with their important law suit, please do so. Winning this lawsuit in Louisiana will benefit all of us nationwide in this battle to protect children’s, parents’ and teachers’ rights.

The 2015 session of the Louisiana legislature included several attempts to remove the privacy protections of public school students contained within Act 837–protections which this same legislature had passed unanimously and the governor signed into law just one year ago.

No attempt was more egregious than that of HB 245 by Rep. Henry.

At the onset, HB 245 was a good bill. The intent was to prevent the state from using content standards and state assessments to measure emotional, physical, or psychological characteristics, attributes or skills of our children. The Louisiana Dept. of Education added amendments which proposed to actually ALLOW such measures to be taken on ALL public school students in Louisiana.  The bill, as amended, was reported favorably to the full House and eventually became Act 384.

The passage of HB 245 into law was the legislature’s, LDOE’s and Gov. Jindal’s attempt to ignore the fact that Act 837 of 2014 prohibits school districts from requiring the collection of certain information from students.  This information includes biometric and psychological information and can only be collected if voluntarily disclosed BY THE PARENT. 

That section of Act 837 was enacted notwithstanding any law to the contrary.  This means that no matter what any other law may say, this section of Act 837 IS THE LAW!

U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy’s Opening Statement At Judiciary Committee Hearing On Sanctuary Cities

View HERE.

U.S. Congressman Trey Gowdy.

Just in…
The Hill reports “House votes to punish sanctuary cities. House Republicans passed legislation on Thursday that would deny federal funds to sanctuary cities.

The bill, passed 241-179, would withhold certain federal law enforcement grants to cities that have policies designed to shelter illegal immigrants from deportation.

Sanctuary cities have come under heavy scrutiny in the wake of Kathryn Steinle’s death on July 1 in San Francisco. Authorities charge that the killing was carried out by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant with a history of felony convictions who had been deported five times.

Critics of the sanctuary laws say such policies encourage people to immigrate to the U.S. illegally at the expense of citizens.

“A refuge for whom? A sanctuary for whom?” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) asked. “A sanctuary for Kate Steinle? Or a refuge for a convicted felon with a 25-year-long criminal history?”’ Read more HERE.

CHINA MOLDS A SUPERCITY AROUND BEIJING

As Beijing Becomes a Supercity, the Rapid Growth Brings Pains
By IAN JOHNSONJULY

This is what abcsofdumbdownblogspot.com has been writing about for over a year.

The video included in the above link tells much about S1177 and HR 5 and their plans to implement Hillary Clinton’s “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child”.

One of America’s finest education researchers, who attended a Community Education Conference in Washington, D.C., in the early nineteen seventies told me:

“One of the attendees, a community educator, asked the facilitator what community education could be likened to? The facilitator’s response was “Communist China’s system”.

Abcsofdumbdownblogspot.com has multiple posts regarding this totalitarian communist system which is part of recently passed S1177 and HR 5.
