URGENT CALL TO ACTION


Please contact your Representative and ask him to vote "NO" on House Bill HR5 - Student Success Act.  This is top priority because it will be voted upon next week.

Tell him:

Vote NO for HR5 - Student Success Act.
This bill adds more federal mandates and spending to education.  We the people are fighting hard to regain control of education and passing this will not only negate that hard work, but make it impossible for us to have any input in our children's education.  It also gives unprecedented power to the federal Secretary of Education by allowing him to have the final authority over an individual state's standards (Common Core standards or any other standards), assessments, and accountability system.  Our Tenth Amendment gives this authority to the States. We must stop this federal overreach and constant effort to control education.

This should scare you and motivate you to contact your legislators in Washington.  Many of them are home this week, so please call their local offices in addition to their DC offices.

Below are a few links and a short summary that explains the dangers of this bill.

Short summary of HR 5

 

EXAMPLES OF FEDERAL OVERREACH BY GIVING UNPRECEDENTED POWER TO THE SECRETARY OF EDUCATION

(p. 22 line 20) "...the State educational agency shall submit to the Secretary a plan..."

Here we go again, the Secretary is given a plan by the state.

 

(p. 23 line 22) "The state shall have such academic standards for mathematics, reading or language arts, and science, and may have such standards for any other subject..."

Both bills now require science standards. Interesting timing as the new national science standards have been revealed.

 

(p. 41, line 19) "...the Secretary shall establish a peer-review process to assist in the review of State plans...and appoint individuals ...who are representative of parents, teachers, State educational agencies, local educational agencies, and private sector employees (including representatives of entrepeneurial ventures)..

The Secretary alone appoints the members just like in the Senate bill. This bill requires Big Business to be represented (rep. of entrepreneurial ventures). What do private sector employees know about standards, assessments, accountability, etc...? Why does Big Business need to play a role in education if this were truly about reforming education and not training our children for jobs?

 

(p. 42, line 9) "The Secretary shall approve a State plan..."

(p. 42, line 12) the Secretary shall "disapprove a State plan ... if the Secretary demonstrates how the State plan fails to meet requirements..."

 

The above two lines are mirror statements included in the Senate bill. These statements are huge. The Secretary of Education (Arne Duncan) has the final say in approving or disapproving a state plan until a state provides to him the exact standards, assessments, accountability, etc... that he wants to be included. It is amusing that it includes a requirement for him to "demonstrate" how a plan fails to meet a requirement. This is completely subjective. The bottom line is that he ultimately has the final say.

 

There is also a section about PROHIBITION on pg. 44 which states that the Secretary and his staff may not attempt to participate in or influence the peer review process. Just like in the Senate bill, there are no penalties listed for violating this.

 

(p. 51, line 19) "Information collected...in a manner that protects the privacy of individuals consistent with section 444 of the General Education Provisions Act [FERPA]."

This is also included in the Senate bill, but does nothing to protect privacy due to the gutting of FERPA. We must restore FERPA to its original form.

 

EXAMPLES OF OVERREACH INTO PRIVATE SCHOOLS

(p. 78 - 90) These twelve pages are all devoted to private schools and prove to be quite disturbing. There is a requirement that an ombudsman be selected to "monitor and enforce the requirements..." It discusses a consideration to "consolidate and use funds ... to provide school wide programs for a private school." There is a very large section covering " if a local educational agency disagrees with the views of private school officials or representatives with respect to an issue..." It goes on to say that if a private school disagrees, they may file a complaint; however, the state agency has the final say. On page 88, there is a statement that "A local educational agency shall have the final authority...to calculate the number of children... who are from low-income families and attend private schools...using the results of a survey that, to the extent possible, protects the identity of families of private school students..." Really? They are going to collect data on all of the students in a private school??

 

Why is a private school not allowed to be just that - private? Why is our federal government exerting so much power?

 

What is one of the most disturbing aspects of this bill has to do with the fact that it is a Republican who sponsored it. Representative Kline might need to review the Republican party platform of 2012. In this platform, it is stated "We are the party of the Constitution."

 

The platform addresses that our “Framers viewed the States as laboratories of democracy and centers of innovation, as do we." "...they bequeathed to successive generations an instrument by which we might correct any misalignment of power between our States and the federal government, the Tenth Amendment."  (It is the Tenth Amendment that gives control over education to the States and not to the federal government.)

 

The platform condemns the current Administration's continued assaults on State governments in matters ranging from voter ID laws to immigration, from healthcare programs to land use decisions. (Then, why are our Republican leaders and representatives allowing the assault on our States in matters of education?)

 

The platform goes on to say that "Scores of entrenched federal programs violate the constitutional mandates of federalism by taking money from the States, laundering it through various federal agencies, only to return to the States shrunken grants with mandates attached."  The Republican party is stating that it is opposed to this, but that is exactly what this bill does.  This bill does nothing but add more mandates. It does nothing to cut spending or improve the current ESEA.

 

This bill must not be approved and policymakers need to empower states to completely exit NCLB to bring education authority back to the states.

Impeach Obama NOW!!!

Michael Connelly Adds New Impeachment Article    

December 10, 2014 @ USJFstaff

NOTE: On Feb 20, 2014 I posted formal Articles of Impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama on this blog and sent copies to members of Congress. We have now confirmed that at least one, and possibly more, members of Congress have submitted the articles to the House judiciary Committee for consideration. Since a lot has happened since February I have prepared a third article that is posted here. Please forward this to your representative in Congress.

Article III

(1)Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution establishes the President as Commander in Chief of the United States Military. This requires him to use his power and authority to oversee the proper use of the military to properly protect and defend the people and territory of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. He is further responsible for using the U.S. military in a manner that is effective and protects members of the military and takes proper care of veterans.

The President takes an oath of office that encompasses these duties. Barack Hussein Obama has consistently violated these duties and violated his oath. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. Imposing Rules of engagement on the active military in war zones that have unnecessarily endangered the lives of American soldiers.
  2. Allowed the leaking of classified information about U.S. military operations to the media in order to enhance his political image. Such leaks place the lives of U.S. soldiers in danger.
  3. Despite being informed in 2009 of problems in the Veterans Administration involving treatment of veterans, took no action improve the situation, but instead ordered the VA to spend a major part of its budget on green energy projects at VA facilities instead on veteran care.
  4. Endangered the lives of members of the American military and American civilians by negotiating with terrorists to trade five high level Taliban leaders in exchange for an American soldier who deserted his post and his fellow soldiers. In addition, he did the foregoing action in violation of Federal law since he did not provide the legally required thirty day notice to members of Congress of his intent to release prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.
  5. Continues to refuse to enforce immigration laws passed by Congress in violation of Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution, and further has used illegal and unconstitutional Executive orders to grant amnesty or de-facto amnesty to illegal aliens currently in the United States.
  6. Has deliberately destroyed the morale and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents by interfering with their attempts to fulfill their oath of office and enforce laws legally passed by the U.S. Congress.
  7. By his deliberate actions encouraged parents of thousands of children in Central America to send their children, often unaccompanied by adults, across the U.S. border and then asking for billions of taxpayer dollars to care for these children.
  8. Ordered the Border Patrol and Department of Homeland Security to place thousands of these children on buses or planes and dumping them in communities around the country; often without any prior notifications to the local elected officials in these communities.
  9. Allowed the TSA to let these children, as well as possible teenage gang members and unidentified to fly in U.S. Airlines at taxpayer expense without proper identification required by Federal law.

10. Has refused to respond to lawful requests by Governors of the southern Border States to close the Southern border to any further illegal immigration and has created a severe financial crisis for Border States and other states in order to advance his own political agenda.

11. Has ordered the release of thousands of illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes in the U.S. to be released and stay in the country after they have served their sentences. This violates the requirements of Federal law that such people be immediately deported.

12. Ordered the immediate release of approximately 68,000 other criminals in Federal prisons that have been convicted of drug offenses. These actions endanger the lives and property of honest and law abiding American citizens that the President is legally and constitutionally required to protect.

13. Has authorized the IRS, HHS, BATF, DHS, and EPA to propose new regulations not authorized by Congress that will adversely affect the rights of Americans protected by the First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments to the Constitution.
