Presidential candidate Donald Trump walked into the middle of the Mexican invasion of American and this happened:
Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate.
Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle, and at one point tried to flip a police car.
"Dump the Trump," said one sign. Another protester scrawled anti-Trump messages onto Costa Mesa police cruisers.
"I'm protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest," said 19-year-old Daniel Lujan, one of hundreds in a crowd that appeared to be mostly Latinos in their late teens and 20s.
Research done at Sanford Health is about to be shared on one of the world’s biggest stages.
A delegation that includes CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft, philanthropist T. Denny Sanford, researchers and the Sanford board of trustees is in Vatican City for a major international conference on the progress of regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy and its cultural impact.
Four research scientists will present on breakthroughs made at Sanford with a significant potential to treat rare diseases, type 1 diabetes and a range of other conditions and illnesses.
Pope Francis is scheduled to appear, pending world events.
The conference, Cellular Horizons, is the third of its kind in a seven-year-old initiative created by the Pontifical Council for Culture and the New York-based Stem for Life Foundation.
It will bring together an invitation-only group of leading cell therapy scientists, physicians, patients, ethicists and leaders of faith, government and philanthropy.
Sanford Health received an invitation to the event through a relationship with the Stem for Life Foundation and is expected to share key developments.
Here is an important clarification:
“The previous pope and the current pope are considered more modernist and have some background in science and recognized education is required in in terms of research and treatments,” Pearce said.
“When you hear of stem cells, everyone starts to jump to conclusions of embryonic and fetal. This is hosted at the Vatican, so it has nothing to do with embryonic and fetal stem cells. It’s adult stem cells and other therapies that are cutting-edge and next-generation treatment. So let’s use the influence of the church to expedite getting treatment to people.”
Monsignor Tomasz Trafny, head of science and faith for the Pontifical Council for Culture and an adviser to Pope Francis on scientific issues, visited Sioux Falls last year to learn about the work being done at Sanford Research.
I am not sure Sanford will stop at adult stem cells. What is more likely is the Pope will abandon conservative doctrine, and push false Christians into accepting the New World Order. Even Time knows he is the New World Pope.
I was watching the news last night and Newt Gingrich was being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly, and in the middle of the discussion Newt revealed something quite interesting: the reason why the Republican Party hates trump is because he has not gone through the “initiation rites” and is not a member of the “secret society.” Here is a clip:
What did he mean by this? which “rites” and which “secret society”? Could it be the Bohemian Grove, the cult that every Republican president as been a member of since its creation?
When South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard vetoed a bill this week that would have required transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their sex at birth, it wasn't his first break with members of his Republican Party.
The same governor who orchestrated a massive cut in state spending early in his first term has since won a pair of tax increases to fund roads and higher salaries for teachers. He has also considered expanding Medicaid in South Dakota, even though Republicans hold every statewide office and supermajorities in both legislative chambers.
Confidants say the moves aren't surprising for a thoughtful, analytical governor who charts his own course, and that Daugaard's approach to politics and policy hasn't changed during his tenure. Despite his initial positive reaction to the transgender student bathroom bill, he discussed it with three transgender individuals, who he said helped him see the issue "through their eyes."
"He is not an ideologue," said Dusty Johnson, Daugaard's former chief of staff. "He is a pragmatist who cares about people and getting things done."
He has taken flak from conservative elements in the party, and his Medicaid and education funding proposals have been the subject of attack ads on TV and radio.
"He always held himself out as a pillar of the conservative cause, and then after getting re-elected, he's embraced an entirely different philosophy," said Republican Sen. Brock Greenfield.
The tax hikes approved Tuesday will mark the first permanent increase to South Dakota's sales tax rate in nearly half a century once signed. Daugaard said he was "elated," about the passage of the bill, which aims to improve South Dakota's lowest-in-the-nation teacher pay.
He has become obvious that Daugaard is a fiscal tax and spend socialist. Daugaard's false conservative credentials come from the social conservatives such as the pro-life cause. Dusty's use of pragmatism shows the hypocrisy found in the social conservative movement as it compromises and then denies the Christian foundation:
Pragmatism denies the existence of God or a higher authority to which humanity is held responsible, so "what works" refers only to mankind, and ethics is based on the best for mankind. But, like all utilitarian-based philosophies, "what works" is nearly indefinable. Does it refer to what is best for the acting agent? Another person? Society at large? Who determines "what works"? Who gets to decide who the "scholars and deep thinkers" are? And what if their decisions don't "work" for a large segment of the population?
By denying God the pragmatic so-called progressive denies truth:
The Bible and pragmatism have a handful of similarities. The Bible teaches that careful consideration will help us act in the right way (Hebrews 5:14). It teaches that we should follow the teaching of the wise (1 Timothy 5:17). And that man's knowledge is limited (Job 38:4). That is where the similarities end. The Bible has a lot to say about the core beliefs of pragmatic relativism, but not in a supportive way.
Knowing truth - The reality of the physical world, the validity of our sensory input, and the ability we have to correctly interpret the world is a given in the Bible. But the biggest problem the Bible has with pragmatic relativism is in the belief that the truth cannot be known. In John 8:32, Jesus says, "and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Psalm 25:5 says, "Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long." And James 1:5 tells us how to find truth: "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."
Knowing God is truth - The truth pragmatists say they are seeking is the very God they foolishly dismissed before they began their search. Exodus 34:6 (NASB) says, "Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, 'The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth.'" And Psalm 111:7 (NASB) says, "The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His precepts are sure."
Telling kids that they can choose which gender they want to be identified with denies biological science. It also denies what God has created. Those who reject God and adopt science as their religion and also support the transgender movement are hypocrites. In addition, social conservatives need to reevaluate their blind support for Republicans.
This is who was behind the full court press to have Governor Daugaard veto HB1008:
Today HRC [Human Rights Campaign] responded to the decision by South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard to veto HB 1008 -- outrageous legislation attacking the rights of transgender children in public schools by attempting to force them to use restrooms and other facilities inconsistent with their gender identity.
“Governor Daugaard chose to do the right thing and veto this outrageous legislation attacking transgender kids. Today, the voices of fairness and equality prevailed, and these students' rights and dignity prevailed against overwhelming odds and vicious opponents in the state legislature,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Unfortunately, another anti-LGBT bill is still pending in the South Dakota Legislature -- and we must keep up the fight to ensure today’s veto holds and this other odious bill never makes it to Governor Daugaard’s desk.”
HRC mobilized its members across South Dakota and the nation to fight back against HB 1008. HRC has also worked closely with local advocates, including the ACLU of South Dakota and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), to try to stop this outrageous bill from becoming law. HRC provided on the ground support, mobilized members and supporters for a community day of action, conducted patch through calls to the governor’s office, and urged fair-minded South Dakotans to speak out against the bill through several action alerts and a robust social media campaign. HRC’s action, along with ACLU of South Dakota and other coalition partners, helped deliver over 80,000 signatures urging the governor to do the right thing and veto HB 1008.
HRC encouraged the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) to speak out, and the ASCA pleaded with the Senate to abandon the bill. As Governor Daugaard contemplated his decision, HRC also worked with seven national child welfare, medical, and education groups -- including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American School Counselor Association, the Child Welfare League of America, the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Association of Social Workers, and the National Education Association-- to release an open letter to all of the nation’s governors expressing their grave concerns and objections to this type of legislation.
Americans identifying themselves as “gay” or lesbian comprise roughly one to three percent of the U.S. population. Yet the homosexual movement — led by pressure groups like the so-called Human Rights Campaign (HRC) — represent, per capita, one of America’s most powerful and well-funded political lobbies. The HRC and the HRC Foundation alone have an annual budget in excess of $50 million.
They devised a three-pronged approach that included the following major strategies:
(1) Desensitization: “Desensitization,” wrote Kirk and Madsen, means subjecting the public to a “continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible. If ‘straights’ can’t shut off the shower, they may at least eventually get used to being wet.” As the authors put it, homosexuals should be portrayed as the “Everyman.” “In no time,” they said, “a skillful and clever media campaign could have the gay community looking like the veritable fairy godmother to Western Civilization.”
(2) Jamming: “Jamming” refers to the public smearing of Christians, traditionalists or anyone else who opposes the gay agenda. Wrote Kirk and Madsen: “Jam homo-hatred by linking it to Nazi horror. Associate all who oppose homosexuality with images of ‘Klansmen demanding that gays be slaughtered,’ ‘hysterical backwoods preachers,’ ‘menacing punks,’ and a ‘tour of Nazi concentration camps where homosexuals were tortured and gassed.’"
Kirk and Madsen added: “In any campaign to win over the public, gays must be portrayed as victims in need of protection so that straights will be inclined by reflex to adopt the role of protector ... The purpose of victim imagery is to make straights feel very uncomfortable.” In a related move, the authors and their ideological cohorts began to smear anyone who disagreed with their agendas as “homophobes,” “hatemongers,” and “bigots.”
(3) Conversion: Kirk and Madsen called for the “conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media.” "In the early stages of any campaign to reach straight America," they said, "the masses should not be shocked and repelled by premature exposure to homosexual behavior itself. Instead, the imagery of sex should be downplayed and gay rights should be reduced to an abstract social question as much as possible. First let the camel get his nose inside the tent — and only later his unsightly derriere!"
Kirk and Madsen actually admitted that their task was to manufactured a "gay civil rights" movement founded on the premise of widespread homosexual victimization.
An "anti-homophobic curriculum" should be implemented in the schools: This was a call for government-mandated, pro-homosexual indoctrination.
“The government should ensure all public education programs include programs designed to combat lesbian/gay prejudice. … Institutions that discriminate against lesbian and gay people should be denied tax-exempt status and federal funding”: This meant that many churches, religious schools, and religious businesses would not qualify for tax-exempt status.
Sad that we don't have a governor who has enough discernment to know when he is being jacked around. South Dakota conservatives are under attack by outside groups who use propaganda and bully tactics. And Cory Heidelberger is one of their attack dogs.
Senator Soholt said commercial property owners in her District 14 had signed on to HB 1182 on the promise of property tax relief. Property tax relief is completely superfluous to the proper functioning of the plan, but as Rep. Lee Schoenbeck might have explained to me last summer, it is politically indispensible to passage of the plan in the 2016 Legislature.
Senators defeated Novstrup’s amendment to his amendment and his amendment on 22–13 votes. In the debate on the amendments and HB 1182 itself, the conservative Republicans opposing HB 1182 unamended bemoaned the sales tax’s regressive impact on the poor, its unfair transfer of wealth to property owners, and its potential to pressure schools to shed 400 teachers. For two hours, I was the ideological leader of the radical right wing of the South Dakota Republican Party.
But we know Senator Novstrup and his right-wing colleagues didn’t mean the things they were saying.
Cory and his gang of socialists do not mean what they say about representing the poor. Now Cory is the ideological leader of the tax and spend liberals who tax the needy and give to the greedy. Cory is a South Dakota's crony capitalist. The movement is a partnership of big government Democrats and big business Republicans. In the past, I have been kicked off his web for proving that truth. My hope was to develop a partnership of conservatives and anti-crony capitalist Democrats and take on the corrupt system of government that uses deception to implement their socialist/capitalist form of economic and societal controls. Instead the Democrats joined in with the SDGOP capitalists because they love money more than they care about their principles. Cory calls that pragmatism.
As the House contemplates a sales tax increase that is being falsely promoted as required in order to give teachers a pay raise, Governor Daugaard admits to having budget surpluses to give to the Chamber of Commerce crony capitalists:
Gov. Dennis Daugaard gave an impromptu talk Thursday before the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce at its legislative day meeting. He noted that the days at the end of last week and the beginning of this week are “crunch time” for the legislature.
Daugaard did not have prepared comments but instead took questions from the audience. The first question was on how to continue state economic development fund Building South Dakota.
Daugaard said the fund does not have a dedicated funding source, but is funded whenever the state has a budget surplus. He added that the state has had a budget surplus every year that he has been governor.
“And it’s my intent to continue that pattern,” he said. “I do believe there is plenty of money in the Building South Dakota program right now. In fact, we’ve got more cash in reserves for the funding needs this year and next year than we need in most programs.”
The state has adopted very conservative budget estimates— and every year, actual revenues come in a little bit better than expected.
So the argument that there is no money in the existing budget to fund a teacher pay raise is a lie. Not only does Daugaard promote more sales tax on the working poor, he promises sales tax exemptions for crony capitalists:
Daugaard also described another of the tools state government has to encourage business investment, the Revolving Economic Development and Initiative fund. The REDI fund’s board can attract new businesses to the state, and also encourage businesses in the state to expand, in part by forgiving some or all of the sales tax they would have to pay.
The governor cited Pat Costello, with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, who mentioned how important a tool that is.
“He said, ‘Very clearly, our biggest and best tool has become the Board of Economic Development’s ability to forgive that tax. That is the sweetener that we can throw in,’” the governor recalled Costello as saying.
Sad that even Democrats went along with Daugaard's "tax the needy in order to give to the greedy" liberal tax and spend agenda. I found the above link at Cory Heidelberger's web site, and he neglected to report on the above revelations. Either Cory is very stupid, or he is part of the liberal tax and spend crony capitalist agenda.
I received a fund raising newsletter from the SDGOP that used conservaitve or conservatism five time to justify me sending them money to defeat liberals. Rep. Josh Klumb made this claim:
If elected in the Senate, Klumb would replace Vehle as District 20's lone senator. Klumb said he and Vehle were both fiscally conservative, but they sometimes differ on social issues and some taxation.
Vehle lead the fight to increase taxes last year. He is still at it this year. Yesterday Klumb voted in favor of increasing sales tax 12.5% even though Duaugaartd's proposed general fund budget is 10% greater than what was spent last year. And there is not enough money to raise teacher pay without raisningt taxes? That is an outright lie.
The GOP does not support the conservative cause. They use conservaitves as political pawns. Governor Daugaard fabricated a fake budget crisis when he took office, and the result is a fire storm of tax and spend liberalism that has persecuted conservatives who don't agree. A minority of conservastives held their ground on yesterday's vote on HB1182. Klumb and Rep. Craig fell victims to the persecution. Did they also destroy any possible chance for conservatives to protect the small person from being ripped off by crony capitalist?
A legislator who asked to be unnamed said Saturday that Schoenbeck, who doesn’t have a formal leadership position, is “the clear House leader for the majority of the mainstream Republican caucus.”
The legislator said Schoenbeck “has been involved in countless behind-the-scenes organizational meetings in preparation for the teacher tax-hike vote, and even today (Saturday) is communicating and preparing for Monday.”
The legislator added that during the past week the legislator “participated in my first joint-party (Republicans and Democrats) caucus to prepare for the vote.”
Mercer also reports on the high levely bullying these totalitarian liberals direct at those who disagree with them:
The tech-institutes amendment appeared critical to changing Schoenbeck’s position from somewhat of a critic regarding the governor’s original plan last month. He became one of the hardest-arguing supporters behind the scenes and the most aggressive during the House debate Thursday.
Schoenbeck didn’t let up after the narrow lost Thursday. That night he continued to push against Gosch and the House Republican assistant leader, Steve Westra of Sioux Falls.
He posted an Internet message and, at about midnight, he issued the second of two messages on Twitter regarding them specifically.
“Tonight, after the chicken behavior by Steve Westra and Brian Gosch, I’m still so mad I can’t sleep. South Dakota deserves better,” Schoenbeck’s tweet said.
Rep. Schoenbeck says Majority Leader Brian Gosch has barred him from the GOP caucus. Well, that should make for fun debate on sales tax and teacher pay when the House convenes at 2 p.m. Central.
This incident comes after Rep. Schoenbeck continued to lambaste Rep. Gosch over the weekend as “pond scum” who “lied” to the “group of clowns” who followed Rep. Gosch in voting against House Bill 1182, the Governor’s funding mechanism for raising teacher pay. Rep. Schoenbeck also appears to have called Rep. Gosch something even stiffer in a Thursday evening text message that Rep. Gosch was reportedly sharing with his fellow Republicans in the Capitol Friday.
Clearly the liberal tax and spend Democrats are aligned with the SDGOP establishment. True conservatrives are now being bullied more than ever. Looks like a couple of themn have caved in to the persecution and changed their vote on HB1182.
HB1182 will be passed on Monday. Some of the conservative legislators who voted against HB1182 last week will be changing their votes as they and their family members had a very bad week. Seems teachers have been led to believe that the only way they will get a $10,00 pay raise is by taxing their poor neighbors. Sounds like coveting. Ande they are out in force promoting that sin.
Liberal tax and spend Democrats are supporting Govenor Daugaard, and their special interests from the education establishment are on the front lines using deception to promote the teachers' coveting. For example, the Associated School Boards of South Dakota is spreading the false propaganda that only tax increases are the solution:
“There is no viable second option for improving teacher pay in our state or funding our public education system at the level needed,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said.
“School board members and community leaders must let our legislators know that our public schools need this new, ongoing revenue source to recruit and retain our teachers and maintain South Dakota’s excellent public education system.”
Pogeny provides us with others who are part of the education establishment:
The education community stands on a united front in support of Gov. Daugaard’s proposal as ASBSD, School Administrators of South Dakota (SASD), South Dakota Education Association (SDEA), the Large School Group and the South Dakota United School Association all endorsed the plan.
The crony capitalist plan to use teachers as polical pawns to tax the poor in order to provide tax cuts for the wealthy was demonstrated in Rapid City this weekend by the chamber of commerce. So we have a partnership of Democratic and GOP establishment liberals bullying conservratives and their families. And their decpetive practicies include denials:
Daugaard’s chief of staff said Thursday that they would make the effort to talk to any lawmakers who were on the fence and get them to change their mind.
And nay-sayers believe that could mean more hints from the governor’s office that if they oppose the measure, they’ll face significant challenges in their primary elections.
A handful of the 23 who opposed the measure Thursday said they had faced threats from the governor’s office and education lobbyistsleading into the vote.
Tony Venhuizen, Daugaard’s chief of staff, said the governor never threatened or hinted at affecting the primary election of any legislator. He said claims that he had were baseless.
Those claims may be baseless, but they may still be true. After all, the governor has a history of using primaries to make sure he has a legislative body that he can control.
Every Democrat in the House backed the Republican governor’s plan. They set aside their own superior plan and their concerns about the uncreative and regressive nature of the tax being used to raise teacher pay… only to hear the Republican opponents co-opt Democratic arguments that it’s unfair to fund state programs on the backs of lower-income folks who can least afford such increases. Majority Leader Brian Gosch (R-32/Rapid City) boiled HB 1182 down to “redistribution of wealth” to teachers placed on the backs of his friend in a wheelchair who got no cost-of-living increase in her paltry government check this year.
It seems unlikely those naysayers would give in to logic and apply their arguments today to support the superior Democratic plan (less regressive tax, no teachers lost, and more competitive wages). Offered a new plan, these Republicans seem inclined to shift their arguments to some new ground, to kick and scream about any new tax, to play class envy, whatever it takes to keep those darn teachers from getting any more money.
Cory Heidelberger and the media are deceiving teachers and the rest of South Dakota. HB1182 only adds $107 million to the general fund and does not guarantee teachers get anything. Here is a real teacher pay bill being offered by true conservative Republicans:
Rep. Lance Russell, R-Hot Springs, told the Joint Committee on Appropriations that $75 million could be earmarked from state government’s share of video lottery revenue. That would require offsetting cuts within state government’s budget.
That is HB1130. For those who are truly against crony capitalism, it is a much better strategy to starve the beast, not feed it. A $107 million tax increase with a little over $50 supposedly going to teachers is feeding the beast. Taking $75 from existing funds starves the beast and gives teacher 50% more money than the liberals' plan. Second HB1130 puts the funds into a teacher pay account, and not simply adding to the general fund where crony capitalists feed .
UPDATE: One more important fact that tax and spend liberals don't want to talk about; Daugaard's proposed General Fund budget is $128 million greater than what was spend last year. And we should add $107 million more to that 10% increase?
Want to increase teacher pay without adding more taxes? Then start with eliminating social engineering from our schools. Most don't know that the kids are being taught that they can determine their gender, regardless of what is taught in biology, in our public schools:
Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce slammed a Maine school's controversial use of a book about a transgender girl as "social engineering" on the part of teachers in an April 22 "Fox and Friends" interview.
Bruce, who is a lesbian, discussed the controversy surrounding Kittery's Horace Mitchell Primary School. The school has come under fire in recent days after a lesson implemented by the guidance department for kindergarteners through third gradeincorporated the book I Am Jazz. Penned by Jessica Herthel and Jazz Jennings, I Am Jazz documents the experience of a young child "with a boy's body but a girl's brain" and her journey towards accepting her transgender identity.
Jennings, who has been the subject of an Oprah Winfrey documentary and will be the star of the forthcoming reality series, "All That Jazz," is a 14-year-old activist who reportedly identified as transgender before she entered kindergarten.
Can you think of anything more cruel than telling a five-year-old boy who likes Lady Gaga that he might have gender dysphoria? Or telling a nine-year-old tomboy who hates Barbie and loves Beckham that she might really be male – in spirit – and therefore she should think about putting off puberty and possibly transitioning to her ‘correct gender’?
Saying such things to kids who are only doing what kids have done for generations – messing about, discovering their identity – turns playfulness into a pathology. It convinces boys who aren’t boyish and girls who aren’t girly that they must have some great gender problem, a profound inner turmoil that their tiny minds must address, when in truth they’re just having fun. What an awful trick to play on children.
The social engineers even use drugs to implement their agenda:
The NHS now prescribes puberty-blocking drugs to so-called trans kidswhen they turn 10 or 11. This seems especially cruel, to deny children that tough but essential transitionary period, that biological burst that turns girls into women and boys into gruff-voiced scallywags who might one day mature into men. We do not ask 10-year-olds to make major decisions in relation to their schooling, where they live, smoking or sex; and yet we now invite them to make the terrifying existential choice to offset adulthooditself, to keep their hormones locked in limbo, to determine what sex they are. What a terrible burden to put on a human being who probably isn’t allowed to walk to the shop on his own or to stay up past 9pm.
And parents who allow this experiment to be conducted on their children are irresponsible:
The treatment of non-conforming or plain funny kids as ‘transgender’ strikes me as a stunning abdication of adult responsibility. It is the job of adults to correct childish confusions, to guide kids through weird or rough patches, and ensure, to the best of our abilities, that they come out the other end as rounded, hopefully happy adults. But now, the cult of relativism runs so deep that adults even balk from making that most basic of all judgements – that a child with a penis is a boy and a child with a vagina is a girl – and instead we accommodate to the child’s own fads and silliness.
There’s one more, seriously dark element to the promotion of the ‘trans kids’ phenomenon: it’s being pushed by adult trans activists as a way of pursuing their own interests and agenda. More and more trans campaigners are using ‘trans kids’ effectively as a moral shield, hoping that if they can convince the world that transgenderism is something that emerges as early as three or four then it must be natural, good, healthy, and thus should be insulated from criticism.
That is, they’re effectively experimenting on children, both socially and medically, both through filling kids’ heads with nonsense about dysphoria and offering them drugs, in order to advance their own adult demands for greater recognition. This is repulsive, the creation of a new generation of castratos who are paraded and praised in public by self-serving trans activists who only want more political clout and respect. Stop it. Let kids be kids.
This is a political agenda that is using taxpayers' money to abuse children in our public schools. And it is coming from the top, not from the grass roots as is deceptively promoted:
State officials in North Carolina and Virginia are defending in federal court a local school board’s policy requiring children to use private bathrooms and locker rooms if they don’t want to use the facilities designated for their biological sex. And parents in Wisconsin seem to have won a temporary reprieve from having their grade-schoolers read the gender-confused missive “I Am Jazz” to “help” children understand a classmate who insists he has a “girl brain and a boy body.”
The Obama administration has made it clear it will put the weight of the federal government behind the aggressors in these conflicts by recently threatening to yank funds from Virginia and Illinois public schools that asked biological boys to dress and shower privately or in the boy’s facilities instead of next to girls.
And this is begans decades abot by perverts:
Let’s look back and unmask the founders who started the gender madness we see infiltrating into our public schools today. As I detail in “Paper Genders,” changing boys into girls started in the perverted minds of three abhorrent pedophile activists from the 1950s who were at the forefront of promoting a movement for sexual and gender experimentation:
Alfred Kinsey, a “violently masochistic masturbation addict” who advocated sex between adult men and young boys and became a leading sexology professor.
Harry Benjamin, an endocrinologist and sexologist who first coined the term “transsexual” in 1954 and for whom the transgender Standards of Care were originally named. Benjamin praised and publicly endorsed his close friend René Guyon, a well-known pedophile.
John Money, a psychologist and pioneer of gender reassignment surgery and friend of Benjamin, who falsified his research and told his patients, young boys, to play sex games with each other and photographed them.
South Dakota should not increase its sales tax in order to fund this agenda:
Public schools are becoming centers for gay, lesbian, and gender-pretender activists and only secondarily fulfilling their purpose as institutions for sound academics. The laws are being interpreted far beyond the original intent of non-discrimination based on gender to where they protect gender pretenders at the expense of the rights of non-trans kids. Gender pretenders are assured access to every school facility and program available to the opposite gender, up to and including girls-only dressing rooms and showers.
Every child’s rights to privacy and protection from exposure to inappropriate opposite-sex nudity are now in jeopardy. According to these new legal interpretations, if you like your gender and want to keep your gender that’s fine, but you cannot keep your freedom, rights, or protections in public-school dressing rooms or restrooms. The current conflict of interest playing out in school locker rooms between girls born as girls and the self-acknowledged gender pretender trans-kids is real and it is not funny. Non-trans students have lost their right to privacy and parents have lost the freedom to parent and protect their children.
The social engineers use decpetion to promte lies as truth. And they need a lot of money to fund their poropaganda. Their purpose is to create confusion and a chaotic society. The transgenders are victimes in all of this. They are victims of child abuse being implemented in our public schools.
If you look at the content of HB1182, you only see changes to existing state statues that propose to increase the sales tax from 4% to 4.5%, which is a 12.5% tax increase that is estimated to raise $107 million. The bill makes no mention of the money going to teachers nor to property tax relief, other than in the bill's title. Here is a sample of those who testified in favor of this sales tax increase:
Shawn Lyons, South Dakota Retailers Association
Katherine (Kitty) Kinsman, Rapid City Chamber of Commerce
Michael Held, South Dakota Farm Bureau
Julie Johnson, Aberdeen Development Corporation
And this is what Bob Mercer said in Saturday's Mitchell paper:
There's been a steady stream of school boards, local chambers of commerce and statewide business organizations urging support for Daugaard's plan.
This tax increase is looking more like a deceptive ploy to shovel more money into the pockets of crony capitalists than a plan to pay teachers.
That's how South Dakota Secretary of Transportation Darin Bergquist described this year's lone inductee to the South Dakota Transportation Hall of Honor.
"During his tenure with the state legislature, Mike has been a true friend to transportation," Bergquist said.
Vehle earned the induction thanks in large part to his tireless efforts over seven years to pass Senate Bill 1, which raised a variety of automobile-related taxes to address the ever-decaying system of highways and bridges that South Dakotans depend on.
So while millions of dollars are spent on ineffective programs like GearUp and lining the pockets of cronies, the SDGOP raised taxes and then required the county governments to raise more taxes in order to get the tax increases via grant applications.
Representative Josh Klumb provided the accurate quote:
Many of the people in attendance had no question that Vehle deserved the recognition for his hard work to pass the highway and road funding bill earlier this year.
Fellow District 20 legislators, Reps. Joshua Klumb and Tona Rozum, shared their appreciation for Vehle's work. Rozum called Vehle "one of the best senators" and Klumb, who voted in support of S.B. 1, joked about the Republican's hard push to pass a bill that raised taxes for South Dakotans to provide approximately $87.5 million annually in total funding for both state and local roads and bridges.
"I can't think of anyone else that would have a banquet in their honor for raising taxes," Klumb said.
Many other state and local politicians were in attendance to celebrate Vehle, including S.D. Secretary of State Shantel Krebs, a few Davison County commissioners and several of Vehle's colleagues in the senate.
Sen. Corey Brown, who represents counties in central South Dakota, also emphasized the commitment Vehle brings to the job.
SDGOP leadership honoring the guy that lead them to the liberal tax and spend left. Klumb is right, and conservatives now should understand that the SDGOP are as liberal as any big government Democrat.
In 2010, a conversation took place between Dan Guericke, the Mid-Central Educational director and Dr. Melody Schopp, South Dakota’s Secretary of Education. It was a conversation they would have many times. The gist of the conversation was that the format of education needed to change. The successful industrial model of the 1880s is obsolete. The criteria still employed by schools is producing students who fit the model of efficiency for the early 20th century, not the early 21st century. Schopp challenged Guericke to create a new model, tailored to rural South Dakota. Guericke accepted the challenge.
Guericke looked to his own educational cooperative to develop a plan. His goal was to bring the best of education to the rural schools pulling from best practices, not simply popular norms. By 2011 he convinced four, Mid-Central school districts to pilot theSDIL/PAST TPBL model in order to inaugurate the change and opportunities he sought for South Dakota students. The pilot communities Armour, Platte, Bonesteel, and Wessington Springs had a common, yet unique element. The relative size (~24 teachers, and <200 students K-12), a rural environment, and a high percentage of low-income families, allowed the schools to save energies and resources by combining efforts. The uniqueness and cultural diversity within each school allowed each school to shape their curriculum into its own version of the 21st Century School. All of this was possible with the expertise and partnership of Sanford PROMISE and Sanford Research, leaders of the state Department of Education, Mid-Central Educational Cooperative, and the PAST Foundation.
Take note that 2010 was also the year that the Rounds adminstration sucessfully had the Common Core standards approved by the South Dakota State Board of Education before reading more details found on page 8 of the pilot report:
The success of the current SDIL schools lies in four key partnerships. Sanford Research, MCEC (Mid Central Educational COOP), the system transformation and education expertise of the PAST Foundation, and the flexibility of the South Dakota Department of Education have helped the transformation of the pilot schools.
1. Mid-Central Education Cooperative is the foundation in thispublic/private partnership. MCEC helps the other partners and the schools involved to understand and develop ownership of the vision of the developed. Along with this we have the responsibility of supporting the deployment and evaluation of this change process. We also have the role of researching, evaluating and securing of resources to support this process, both human and financial. It is also our role to provide leadership and to support all members of the team both in positive as well as not so positive situations.”
2. Sanford Research offers a deep informed engagement from the corporate world of health and wellness. Their education initiative, Sanford PROMISE, has a mission to increase the community’s understanding of science and their awareness about the benefits of research to society. The Sanford PROMISE’s role in the SDIL Initiative is to provide rich content/ curriculum resources as well as access to equipment and expertise. Through this partnership, students have at their disposal equipment and expertise that is unheard of in a small, rural school’s lab. Students synthesize DNA and access a real, working lab to increase hands-on knowledge and access to materials that most rural school districts could not afford. In addition, Sanford Research opens its labs and offers to students an on-site experience in a working research lab.
3. The PAST Foundation offers a transformative education model that embraces community and geography. The model is a replicable process that is flexible and takes on a community’s tenor and belief, delivering rigorous education in a holistic and customized way. By partnering anthropology with science and technology, PAST invites the world to design, construct and engage in experiences that link learning to life. The PAST foundation’s partnership in this initiative is to provide ongoing professional development and assistance to participating schools and teachers.
4. The South Dakota Department of Education (SD DOE) made it possible for rural school districts to work collaboratively. Their leadership helps participating schools navigate state requirements that might impede innovation, supports alternative professional development, and provides technical assistance. Without the assistance of the SD DOE, Innovation Lab school districts would not have been able to proceed. Dr. Melody Schopp, SD Secretary of Education, called TPBL “an ambitious effort” in her August 2011 column for the DOE and published as an editorial in the Argus Leader. Schopp praised the Innovation Lab school districts for “their vision and commitment to searching out solutions for their students." The SD DOE cleared a pathway allowing the innovation of TPBL in SD.
On Page 16 we find out that this public/private partnership added two more partners, the Clinton Global Initiative and MCEC's GearUp program:
Leading off the second year, SDIL partnered with theClinton Global Initiative America (CGI America) in a commitment to Redefine Rural and Native American STEM Education. Becoming a CGI partner accomplished a number of positive and powerful things for SDIL. First, it recognized the innovative nature of the Innovation Lab in naming SDIL the only rural educational commitment selected in 2012. Second, it brought to the attention of businesses, communities and other organizations the work of SDIL paving the way for further expansion of the Innovation Lab network.
All aspects of the commitments have had resounding impacts on the evolution and development of the network. Clinton established CGI America to address economic recovery in the United States. CGI America brings together leaders in business, government, and civil society to generate and implement commitments to create jobs, stimulate economic growth, foster innovation, and support workforce development in the United States. Since its first meeting in June 2011, CGI America participants have made more than 160 commitments.
In the second year four more schools were added to SDIL through a partnership with the Native American program GearUP.
Untill recently we have not heard much about SDIL and GearUP. We now know they were administered by MCEC
The implementation of the Common Core State Standards will provide many opportunities for the private sector to support enhanced STEM learning in the classroom.
Yes, most have heard about Common Core. Page 15 of the pilot report calls Common Core "national standards" and explains how the teachers will be controlled:
At the close of the first year, all faculty from the inaugural four Innovation Lab school districts were given the opportunity to attend TPBL PD bootcamp. In 2012 the Department of Education (SD DOE) also rolled out the Common Core Standards for Language Arts and Math. SDIL proposed to SD DOE an alternative to introducing the national standards, which would fully integrate the practical application of the standards into the PD planning process to help teachers apply the concepts in a practical manner within planned lesson modules. Also, the draft Next Generation Science Standards were introduced to teachers and integrated into the PD planning process. The SDIL process was cross-walked to the State professional development workshops to insure that nothing was missed and state trained coaches from Mid-Central Educational Cooperative who had participated in the Year 1 bootcamp were invited to join the PD and offer in-depth coaching to teachers (Appendix C: Common Core Cross walk for TPBL). The PD bootcamp was then opened to schools, outside the four, SDIL pilots who were invited to participate. The weeklong bootcamp integrated Common Core and Next Gen Science standards, along with Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Effective Teaching into SDIL TPBL planning process.
We'd like to believe these claims and efforts can trump the more political uses of the Common Core project. But we can't.
For starters, the misnamed “Common Core State Standards” are not state standards. They're national standards, created by Gates-funded consultants for the National Governors Association (NGA). They were designed, in part, to circumvent federal restrictions on the adoption of a national curriculum, hence the insertion of the word “state” in the brand name. States were coerced into adopting the Common Core by requirements attached to the federal Race to the Top grants and, later, the No Child Left Behind waivers. (This is one reason many conservative groups opposed to any federal role in education policy oppose the Common Core.)
Written mostly by academics and assessment experts—many with ties to testing companies—the Common Core standards have never been fully implemented and tested in real schools anywhere. Of the 135 members on the official Common Core review panels convened by Achieve Inc., the consulting firm that has directed the Common Core project for the NGA, few were classroom teachers or current administrators. Parents were entirely missing. K–12 educators were mostly brought in after the fact to tweak and endorse the standards—and lend legitimacy to the results.
The standards are tied to assessments that are still in development and that must be given on computers many schools don't have.
So under the guise of promoting technology (STEM), the rural schools are are being set up to be controlled by the Common Core national standards whose enforcement requires computers. The aforementioned appendex to the pilot report admits these computer based assessments are designed to force alignment to the standards:
SDIL TPBL forms a toolkit that when used in coordination with existing programs and tools such as Teachscape provide both teachers and administrators with a consistent set of evidence to evaluate and a consistent manner in which to evaluate. Completed TPBL forms, specifically the 2wk planner and the Snapshot, provide detailed information regarding planning, standard alignment, and create the foundational components of SLOs for each project, as well as the baseline comparison for gap assessment against standards-‐based assessment. In short, the SDIL TPBL forms and process are an excellent partner for South Dakota's newest initiatives.
Andrew Gavin Marshall writes, "For the first time in human history, free humanity is faced with the dominating threat of a truly global elite, who have at their hands the technology to impose a truly global system of control: a global scientific dictatorship. The great danger is that through the exponential growth in scientific techniques, elites will use these great new powers to control and dominate all of humanity in such a way that has never before been experienced." [New Eugenics and the Rise of the Global Scientific Dictatorship]
And that control and domination of humanity includes rural South Dakotans and South Dakota Indians thanks to the Melody Schopp, the education cooperative in Platte, and the deception behind the Common Core agenda. And we should also understand that this system of control is being put together by both political parties. Don't let the party activist hacks distract you from that truth.
