“Ted Cruz – Undercover Common Core Exposed”

By Donna Garner


On 1.12.16, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas launched Pt. 1 of the exposè of Common Core:  http://projectveritas.com/explosive-new-series-about-common-core 

Today O’Keefe’s Project Veritas launched Pt. 2: http://www.projectveritas.com/posts/news/hidden-cam-another-publishing-executive-caught-dishing-dirt-common-core 

These are important undercover videos to bring the corruption behind Common Core (i.e., Common Core Standards Initiative) to the forefront.  However, because our country is in such a fragile, precarious, and unsettled political period leading up to the Presidential elections, it is also important to make it very clear which Presidential candidate has stood publicly opposed to the Common Core longer than any of the other candidates.  

I have personal knowledge that way back in 2011 (and from the inception of the Common Core), Ted Cruz already knew about its dangers and was loudly and vociferously alerting the public.  He instinctively recognized that the Common Core (i.e., CCSI) was the same type of Big Government takeover his father had experienced under Batista and Castro in Cuba – the purpose of which was to indoctrinate Cuba’s youth into Communism.  (5.7.15 – “Ted Cruz’s Fire in the Belly Against Common Core – Cruz’s Comments from 2011 Against Common Core” — by Donna Garner – EdViews.org — http://www.educationviews.org/ted-cruzs-fire-belly-common-core/)

Ted Cruz was the first person to sign Phyllis Schlafly’s STOP Common Core Pledge:  4.22.15 – “Ted Cruz First Signer of Phyllis Schlafly’s STOP Common Core Pledge” – Eagle Forum — http://www.conservativehq.com/node/20144

Ted Cruz is also the only Presidential candidate to put forth an actual practical plan to get rid of the U. S. Department of Education and Common Core:  “Ted Cruz’s Plan To Dump the Common Core and the U. S. Dept. of Education — Policy Statement” — https://www.tedcruz.org/five-for-freedom/

Jeb Bush, on the other hand, founded the Foundation for Excellence in Education in 2008; and he is heavily vested in Common Core, having played right along with the Obama administration’s CCSI.  It is hard for me to believe that Marco Rubio (who has been bankrolled by wealthy investors) and was Jeb Bush’s sidekick in Florida for at least 15 years did not have some vested interest in Jeb’s education endeavors.
(4.9.15 – “2016 Ambitions Turn Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush’s Protégé, Into Rival” – by Michael Barbaro – New York Times — http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/10/us/politics/expected-presidential-bid-puts-marco-rubio-at-odds-with-a-mentor-jeb-bush.html)

It was only when Marco Rubio started his run-up to the Presidential campaign that he began to speak out against Common Core, but Rubio has put forth no definite plan to dump Common Core/U. S. Dept. of Educationonly rhetoric without any substance.

In fact, Rubio chose not to vote either time to stop ESSA (rewrite of NCLB) when it passed on 12.9.15. The ESSA legislates Baby Common Core for Pre-K children and cradle-to-the-grave control by the federal government, bringing even more federal control over education: “The Celebration Has Begun – Cradle-to-Grave Big Government” — By Donna Garner –12.17.15 — http://www.educationviews.org/celebration-begun-cradle-to-grave-big-government/ 

Here is the press release that Ted Cruz sent out in opposition to ESSA:  12.9.15 – “Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on the Every Student Succeeds Act” — http://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=2549

Our country needs to turn a deaf ear to Donald Trump’s recent anti-Common Core comments. It is Donald Trump who used his vast wealth to give campaign donations and/or to support publicly the Democrats who perpetrated both ObamaCare and Common Core.  These include Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Charlie Rangel, John Kerry, and Bill Gates:  6.22.15 – “How Donald Trump Helped Democrats Pass Obamacare” — by Marc A. Thiessen – Washington Post — https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/how-donald-trump-helped-democrats-pass-obamacare/2015/06/22/002f4c7c-18ea-11e5-ab92-c75ae6ab94b5_story.html

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas is doing a tremendous service with his undercover videos (more to be released periodically) that completely discredit Common Core. 

The hope that we have now is to elect Ted Cruz as President so that with his passionate commitment and Constitutional skills he will be able to repeal Common Core and dismantle the U. S. Dept. of Education.  

*Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, and John Kasich have all been strong supporters of Common Core.  Ben Carson came out against Common Core only after he began the run-up to his Presidential campaign.

    The dinner hour has become the national deprograming hour.
    All across America, more and more, parents are discovering that their children are actually attending indoctrinating centers rather than schools … and hauling home the outrageous and almost always wrong, politically-infected version of all things. Perhaps Common Core’s lone, positive fallout is that it has revived the family supper.
    Common Core, at the moment, is bad stuff. But it has the potential to become extremely bad stuff. For months, in post after post and article after article, the great debate has been about various lessons and approaches that have emerged. Are they or are they not Common Core sanctioned? I used to think that was a valid question. Not any more.
    The very sponsors of Common Core hardly seem to mind these curriculum excursions into their absurdity … such as rewriting American history to coalesce with the current pc mindset. They seem barely shivered by eye-popping, stomach-churning developments in sex education … for the littlest of students … who are now exposed to startling information and vividly detailed sexual escapades … all under the guise of healthy living. The Common Core oligarchs seems somewhat soothed by the politically charged alterations to historical documents and events … provided they tumble to the left of center. In short, Common Core’s whoop seems to be … “Open sesame” … everything and anything is up for “reform”.
    Anyone and everyone seems welcomed in the Common Core tent of the macabre. If you’re up for skewering America and its history, hop on board. If you’re inclined toward seedy sexual stuff … welcome home! If you’re in favor of disrupting and disturbing a particular activity like coal or petroleum production … or sanctifying every tree and bog and swamp … then there’s a slot for you in the Common Core mayhem. Itching for a fight about who should control nutrition for kids? You’re welcomed aboard. Cranky about about tenure or teacher sovereignty in the classroom? All aboard. It seems anyone with a beef gets a plate at the Common Core buffet of all-you-can-eat nonsense.
    Got beefs? Maybe against the military or the Tea Party? Scribble out a unit or a lesson package. You’re in. Got hang-up about climate change or homosexual marriages? Fire away. Got a bug up your nose about Christianity or religion in general,? Just punch out a screed about fanatics and zealots and it’ll find it’s way into Common Core.
    The point? Common Core has given educational cover for a slender minority to pollute the actual education environment with any issue whatsoever … and it seems to give those issues … no matter how hair-brained or offensive … a certain legitimacy. Common Core has become the new “open sesame” because, by its very nature, it suggests that what is, is not acceptable. America must be altered, changed, renovated, rejuvenated, redirected … and most especially … cured. But only if those cure pass a certain muster.
    Esteemed historical figures are pilloried at the politically-correct whipping post. Historical documents … which foundationed this nation for centuries … are now seen as attic junk … to be recycled according to the “New Nonsense” of the day.
    This is no time to hail this nation. Nope. It needs to be SHAMED. Made to appear as sinful as any other on the planet. It’s time to excoriate those blasphemers who think this is an exceptional nation based on a unique set of principles because, well, it makes us standout a bit too much from the rest of the miserable world. And we can’t have that. No, siree. We’re even cajoled to empathize with the new medievalists … currently on a head-collecting mission in the sands of the Middle East … who will one day rocket us into a modern armageddon of real life-or-death preservation. It now seems wiser to “understand” our enemies than to even question them … to search for the vomit-inducing “root cause” of their bloody neo-medievalism. Ever think we might be playing with a modern Ali Babba who isn’t so randy and dandy as the fictional one of yesteryear? I think not.
    In schools today, Christianity is viewed as a dangerous cult, personal responsibility has been replaced by an all-knowing, all-soothing government, and espousing contrarian points of view will get you tattooed as a racist, a xenophile, a homophobe, a sexist, a capitalist-pig, a neanderthal … or a dastardly conservative. Common Core has opened the flood-gates for every miscreant with a special beef to step forward and set the record unstraight … because that is part and parcel of the New Nonsense.
    And beware what college claims both your child and your family fortune … because almost all of them are indoctrinating, finishing schools of the very worst sort. You might not recognize the kid who returns home.
    Make time for dinner … and save your child. Often. View each bread-breaking opportunity as if it was the last supper.
