I did testify on HB1153 and how the "internationally benchmarked" Core Curriculum standards opened the door to control by the United Nations of America's history. The point seemed not to bother six of our Senators who voted against HB1153 in South Dakota's Senate Education committee yesterday. We heard arguments that HB1153 violated America's democracy by Ed Pogeny from the Department of Education and Dianna Miller, lobbyist for the "Large School Group". Both are paid with taxpayers' dollars. No one during the committee corrected them as to the true founding of America as being a "Constitutional Republic". I was not given the opportunity to point out that the testimony proved that we not only needed to pass HB1153, but we needed to do much more. America's history has been severely misstated, and I question as to whether or not that is by design. The question of the day, who is controlling today's American history?
