Will School Boards FLUSH Fed Ed?

Can a handful of elite bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. understand what children’s educational needs are?

After all, the bureaucrats don’t know them like their parents, grandparents and teachers do.  They know nothing about their talents or their unique learning abilities.

The U.S. Department of Education (also known as “Fed Ed”) is the smallest Cabinet-level department, with about 5,000 employees, representing 1.56 percent of the total U.S. population.

This tiny 1.56 percent pretend to know better than you and your locally elected school boards what is best for your family.

The beauty of the human race is that every human being is exceptional, with their own special set of DNA.

It’s what makes the world go round.

With the vast failures of the Common Core fiasco, it is clear that bureaucrats at Fed Ed don’t seem to know the first thing about what makes local students special.

Indiana saw the light and became the first state to drop Common Core like a hot potato.

Yet these bureaucrats have somehow convinced you that you are powerless without them.

How have they done that?

By dangling a bag of money in front of your local school board, threatening to pull it away if they step out of line.

Funding from the Federal Department of Education is filled with strings attached.

Americans recently saw just how this nasty game is played when Obama made it clear that if schools didn’t agree with his edict to allow transgender students to use the restrooms aligning with their so-called “gender identity,” in their school, he would pull a string and take their funding away.

He gave school boards the option of either allowing males in girls’ restrooms and changing rooms or spending money to build separate facilities.

It shocked many to actually see the play in action.  They thought this kind of thing was the stuff of political drama shows on TV.

Obama’s hope was that the “little people” would crawl back into their holes and let the elites get on with their tyrannical tirade, but what happened was something Obama and the bureaucrats at Fed Ed surely didn’t expect.

States started saying “NO.”

Twenty-three states sued the Obama administration over the transgender mandate.

Mississippi’s governor directed his state’s education department to disregard the order.  Texas’ lieutenant governor announced that the state is prepared to forfeit its dirty $10 billion in federal public school funding.

Elected leaders of Utah County’s largest school system discussed an alternate budget should their district refuse roughly $40 million in federal money, representing 6.3 percent of its total revenue for the 2016-17 school year.

A Virginia school board unanimously approved an ordinance resisting the Obama administration’s transgender bathroom edict and requiring students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their biological sex.

The plan didn’t turn out quite like the feds were hoping.

It seems people are waking up to the fact that a handful of elite bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. will never have the best interests of American students at heart.

Perhaps it’s finally time for local school boards to do the responsible thing by refusing to accept federal funding with strings attached and simply “Flush Fed Ed.”

    this administration is despicable, the way they force things on people that they don’t want, because they think we’re all stupid.

      They threaten to CUT FUNDING.
      They LIE and say this is a “NEW LAW”, but when you ask about the details of the law, its number, when it passes-they refuse to give you the information.

      In reality much of this bathroom fiasco is indeed new ‘rules’ by civil/human rights and other committees. This is what they did in WA state, threaten Grant funding and bribe a certain member of a board with a vastly increased income IF they could push this through the local YMCAs by said date… BUT thats after they snuck it through first without alerting anyone, including their own staff and boy did that blow up in their faces. Then they backpaddled, held meetings, worked with their lawyers but eventually the lure of grant money was put ahead of the health and safety of especially the children, but in reality ALL normal people.

      A rule is NOT a LAW, regardless of what a gov’t agency would try to have you believe. A rule is a guideline or regulation. A law is voted on by Congress and signed by a President (or Governor if its a state law). There are fines for breaking rules or regulations. Jail and prison are for LAW breakers.

    well i would say 75% of the people in d.c. can’t read or write , and 100% never took math , that explains why they never read the bills they pass and why we have 20 trillion in debt

    Nearly half of the public school districts in America are low wealth districts. These are the districts that have extreme difficulty passing local tax levies and have a high percentage of their residents earning below middle class wages. Most of these districts will not be able to meet state mandates that they finish the fiscal year in the black without the federal funding. I can’t speak for all states, but here in Ohio if the budget would end in the red the district must borrow enough money to break even. It is required by law and giving up federal funding becomes impossible without a new money source to replace it. Existing state laws, phantom revenue and federal blackmail make it almost impossible for school boards in low wealth districts to walk away from federal funding even though many would like to be able to do so.

    Richard Bagenstose got it exactly right. The people in DC are the dummies. They were “common core” educated. That is why there is an alternative meaning for DC. Instead of District of Columbia, DC really stands for “Dummy Central”.

      Thank you for the hearty laugh.

    Mike Adams writes brilliantly about the state of the State – this is what we would be hearing if we had a free press:
    (NaturalNews) Regardless of your political affiliation, this is a must-read article because it describes in raw, naked detail how the FBI / DOJ justice scam really operates in America. Remember, thanks to the absolute corruption of Washington D.C., “justice” really means “just us.” In other words, the politically connected elite write laws and carry out the selective prosecution of laws solely to serve their own self-interest.
    And if you’re not part of the politically connected elite, you’re automatically guilty and will sooner or later be prosecuted under some wildly exaggerated, arcane rendition of a law that’s never applied to people like Hillary Clinton.
    Here’s exactly how the FBI and DOJ carry out their “justice theater” that’s essentially nothing more than gross injustice that exists in violation of the rule of law.

    Step 1: Generate hundreds of thousands of laws and regulations that ensnare anyone who might be targeted for scrutiny
    The first step in achieving selecting prosecution is to pass so many laws that no human being can possibly be innocent of them all.

    Read the book Three Felonies a Day to learn the startling truth that the average American unknowingly commits three felony crimes each day (thanks to all the insane laws on the books).
    The point is that no ordinary person can survive scrutiny without being arrested, prosecuted and jailed.

    Step 2: Practice selective prosecution to target your political enemies while looking the other way for your political friends
    Since everybody is guilty of three felonies a day, the job of the politically-motivated FBI or DOJ simply becomes one of choosing whom to target.
    Since every person in America can be brought up on criminal charges if their actions are sufficiently scrutinized, the goal of criminalizing the government’s enemies is achieved in the simplest manner possible: Focusing surveillance and scrutiny on those individuals the political regime wants to imprison.
    And now that the federal government has all your financial records, email records, search engine queries, web surfing activities and even your careless social media posts, they can easily easily link you to any number of crimes you unknowingly committed by violating the multitude of confusing laws you didn’t even know existed.
    While people like Hillary Clinton get away with treason by claiming they “didn’t mean to do it,” when the FBI comes knocking on your door, they’ll calmly explain to you that “ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
    See, laws are for the little people like you and me… not for the Washington elite.

    Step 3: If your political friends happen to get caught breaking the law, refuse to prosecute them… problem solved!
    Despite the best efforts of the corrupted mainstream media to cover up the criminal behavior of the political establishment, every once in a while some member of the political elite gets caught engaging in a violation of law that’s so heinous, it can’t be swept under the rug.
    What to do in such situations? Just “pull a James Comey” and announce to the world that you refuse to prosecute the person who violated those laws. After all, prosecutorial discretion means that “career prosecutors” who work for DOJ can decide to ignore the criminality of all their friends.
    And who are their friends? Remember that all the prosecutors who work for DOJ are paid by the government. They know where their paychecks come from, and they fully realize that if they ever attempted to prosecute someone with sufficient power in government, their own careers would be destroyed.
    Thus, the primary function of the DOJ becomes one of suppressing the sheeple while protecting the criminal class of Washington political operatives.

    Step 4: Arm up all federal departments with military weapons while calling for the complete disarmament of the population
    Another important step in accelerating the FBI / DOJ war against the American people is to call for the mass disarmament of the citizenry while ramping up the paramilitary wings of every major government agency with a huge influx of military weapons.
    Today, right now, the EPA runs its own paramilitary organization, complete with weapons of war to be trained upon U.S. citizens. From Circanews.com:
    The U.S. Agriculture Department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service doesn’t seem like a Wild West sort of federal agency since its biologists mostly check on the human health impact of animal and plant species.
    But it reported buying $4.7 million in high-powered weapons, ammunition and military gear during the last decade, including shotguns, night vision goggles, and propane cannons, according to federal purchasing records reviewed by the nonpartisan government spending watchdog openthebooks.com.
    It turns out that U.S. federal agencies are spending between $150 million and $200 million per year on military gear and weapons. While this is happening, the very same government criminals who are granted selective immunity against prosecution for treasonous acts are all over the mainstream media calling for the complete disarmament of the population.
    All the guns in America, it turns out, belong solely in the hands of the government… according to government. Funny how that always leads to genocide and tyranny, isn’t it?

    Step 5: To sweep up even more citizens into prosecutions, plot acts of domestic terrorism, then recruit low-IQ citizens who you then “catch” in the act
    Here’s an irrefutable fact about the FBI that very few people realize is true: The agency routinely plans domestic terrorism attacks and draws up the plans and equipment to carry them out. FBI agents then run around the bad parts of town, recruiting hapless (and sometimes even HOMELESS) victims to carry out those acts of terrorism so they can be conveniently “caught in the act.”
    Right before the bomb goes off, the FBI swoops in and declares victory for “stopping domestic terrorism.” Yet, in all these cases, it was the FBI that masterminded the acts of terror in the first place.
    We have extensively documented this fraudulent phenomenon here on Natural News, including in this article review of the book “The Terrorist Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terror.” The New York Times has ever covered the FBI’s fake terror plots, believe it or not.
    Also, check out these stories: FBI intercepts its own terrorist plot against US Capitol, Pentagon and FBI halts terror plot dreamed up by the FBI, then claims victory against terrorism.
    Like almost everything else done by the fraudulent federal government in America, the FBI is mostly a theatrical production company engaged in elaborate street theater. We now know that most of the so-called “crimes” that are halted by the FBI actually consist of drugged-out patsies who were recruited by the FBI to carry out FBI-inspired terror attacks. Meanwhile, any actual criminals who commit actual crimes — like Hillary Clinton — are given a free pass even when their crimes violate national security.
    The FBI, much like the DOJ and every other federal agency, has become a joke… a hollow shadow of its former self and the laughing stock of informed citizens everywhere. The public perception now is that the only crimes the FBI seems to be able to stop are those crimes its own agents dreamed up in the first place. Yet the agency can’t seem to nail the worst criminals of all… the ones in power in Washington who commit the most heinous crimes against the entire nation by selling out the White House to foreign interests.

    Why the citizens are nearing REVOLT
    This is how it all works today in the corrupt America we are all desperately trying to save from sinking into despotism. The rule of law has been abandoned everywhere in Washington, and now the agencies of the federal government clearly exist for no other reason than to consolidate power in Washington, no matter what methods of tyranny and totalitarianism must be unleashed against the citizenry.
    Those citizens, it turns out, are nearing a state of mass revolt. The obvious criminality in Washington has gone too far. The cover-ups are too numerous. The weaponization of government against innocent people is modeled after totalitarian regimes that almost always end in genocide. Today in America, there are journalists who sit in prison for no reason other than the fact that the government did not like what they reported. There are ranchers in prison who were convicted of the same “crime” the BLM carries out routinely (accidentally burning too much acreage in a controlled burn of rural ranch land). There are whistleblowers in prison who tried to warn the public, but the Obama administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all the other presidential administrations combined… across the entire history of America.
    The last straw is now the government’s brazen attempt to completely disarm the citizenry — an effort aided by the truly retarded verbal grunts of Hollywood morons like Matt Damon (who now insists that only government officials should have guns, not citizens). This effort will be accelerated in the near future with larger and more numerous false flag shootings, staged by the same theatrical production agencies that already stage fake terror plots to claim victory for “stopping terrorism.” Do you think you know the real story of the Sandy Hook massacre? Watch this video to learn about the ACTORS who played key roles as both parents and FBI swat team members (yes, the same guy plays both roles in all the media coverage).

    Elaborate theater to weave a prison for your mind
    It’s all theater, friends. The media, the FBI, the DOJ, the U.S. Senate, the Federal Reserve and even the rule of law. It’s all elaborate theater carried out as a prison for your mind, to keep you occupied, confused and manipulated so that you never figure out the greater truth that threatens the entire corrupt establishment.
    What greater truth is that? The simple fact that all government power is granted by the People and can be instantly taken away by the People with nothing more than a consensus decision. Government and the rule of law exist as nothing more than consensus mental constructs — structural delusions of the mind that are widely shared and thus believed to be real. But government can collapse in an instant when the fraudulent promises of government suddenly collapse in the minds of the populace. Hence the need for drastic, elaborate financial theater to create the illusion of a booming economy even as we teeter on the verge of global, systemic economic collapse.
    (By the way, “faith” in fiat currency is also a mental construct that can be shattered in an instant. The only reason another person accepts your green paper dollars as money is because you both share a false believe in the agreed-upon underlying value of the digits printed in cheap ink on near-worthless fiber. If that illusion of value is shattered in both your minds, dollars immediately collapse into worthlessness because they have no tangible value. All fiat money systems are run entirely on FAITH… and faith is fleeting when it comes to money.)

    The illusion of government power depends on the continued indoctrination and intimidation of the enslaved masses
    Those who run government fully realize that they are a tiny minority who rule only by fiat. Their rule depends entirely on the masses believing in the delusions played in for their minds by the ruling elite. If that delusion were to ever be shattered and the people realized how they were being fraudulently manipulated and exploited, the political elite wouldn’t survive even 24 hours (and there would be a dire shortage of rope in the D.C. area in particular).
    That’s the bigger, deeper picture of what’s really happening around you right now. You are living in a nation that’s run by a corrupt, criminal elite who carry out campaigns of elaborate delusion to enslave and manipulate the clueless masses who keep robotically voting for their very own slave masters. Any person who attempts to free the slaves is deemed an enemy of the state and is subjected to selective prosecutorial scrutiny to have them imprisoned (as described above).
    In fact, the only reason I am still allowed to function as a relatively free citizen in this nation is because my articles simply aren’t popular enough to warrant the effort of oppression. I’m relatively safe, in other words, because my reach is so tiny compared to the mainstream media. Interestingly, that also means that you who are reading this are among the top 1% of the most informed individuals in the world. You are reading and learning about these eye opening, fundamental truths that 99% of the population will never encounter (partly because the 99% don’t have the mental fortitude to even face reality in the first place, since believing in popular fairy tales requires no real effort… and besides, there are Oreo cookies that need licking, right?).
    As long as the system can continue to censor my message and keep it restricted to less than 1% of the population — via Google and Facebook censorship, mostly — then I will be “allowed” to continue my work because it doesn’t legitimately threaten the establishment in any serious way. But if my message ever somehow explodes in popularity and breaks through 10% of the population, then I would be in serious danger and would be silenced in one way or another. Remember, selective prosecution can target ANYONE and indict them for unknowingly committing three felonies a day.
    Have no fear, however: My message of truth is not of much interest to 99% of the population. They are far too happy in their Golden Corral, GMO-infested junk food eat-a-thon fairy tale illusions to ever bother investigating reality. There is virtually zero risk to the establishment that my words will ever be embraced by more than a tiny fraction of the population. Deep truth, it seems, has never really been that popular in delusional societies.
