Proponents of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) often insist that the new standards are not a federal takeover of education. Actually, Common Core supporters could be right in one sense: Common Core is not so much about a nationalization of education as it is part of a world-wide initiative that may ultimately serve to make American values and practices secondary to global sharing.

Writing at Crisis Magazine, journalist Mary Jo Anderson asserts that Common Core is nothing less than the latest attempt by the U.N. to impose on the United States a globalist perspective with the utopian goals of worldwide peace, environmental sustainability, and economic fairness. In that context, Common Core is part of the Obama administration’s “transformational” education plan that places emphasis on global relationships rather than a unique American culture.

It is commonly known that Common Core is being financed with more than $150 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In addition, the Gates Foundation has collaborated with the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Looking back on the recent government shut-down I was amazed by the open and extremely venomous attacks, often by the leadership of both political parties, on any citizen who spoke out in opposition to the manner in which the Federal Government is conducting its/our affairs. To make it convenient for them to attack us, apparently all those citizens who live outside the Beltway in “fly over country,” once called “The America Heartland,” are now just lumped together under the label, “Tea Party People.”

“The American people will not be extorted by Tea Party anarchists," Harry Reid- US Senate Majority Leader. These words from the man who, along with President Obama, is primarily responsible for shutting down the government, holding us hostage, and doing everything in his power to make the average American feel the pain- for his own political gain.

Apparently, from now on, any time you hear the words “Tea Party” or “Patriot,” you are supposed to simply replace those words in your mind with “anarchists” and think of them as anti- government hate groups-that way you can completely disregard what they have to say and go back to sleep and not worry about the future of your children or the country they will live in.

Ken Freeman attended the University of Georgia, as did his wife of 46 years, Judy. Starting in 1967 he served as a Navy Pilot in Viet Nam. After returning from Viet Nam he began a 30 year career as an airline pilot and cattle rancher in North Alabama. He retired as a Northwest Airlines Captain in 2000 and continued the family ranch.

Today, Ken, Chairman, and vice-chair Don Casey of the Alliance for Citizen’s Rights, travel widely, giving presentations on Sustainable Development and helping form organizations that defend constitutional rights. Working as advisors to citizens groups they have led the fight in stopping un-constitutional laws and regulations in the U. S. and lectured on Sustainable Development as far away as Australia.

In the 2012 Alabama Legislative Session the ACR authored and helped pass what is believed to be the first Anti-Agenda 21 law enacted anywhere in the world. They were instrumental in the writing of the “Anti-Agenda 21 Resolution” which was unanimously adopted by the Alabama Republican Party and carried to the National Republican Convention.

Today Ken is primarily focused on the repeal of Common Core in Alabama (Agenda 21 for education) while he and Don are still working with the ACR on other Agenda 21 and constitutional issues.

WikiLeaks: Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

The TPP is the forerunner to the equally secret US-EU pact TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), for which President Obama initiated US-EU negotiations in January 2013. Together, the TPP and TTIP will cover more than 60 per cent of global GDP.

Download the full secret TPP treaty IP chapter as a PDF here

Today, 13 November 2013, WikiLeaks released the secret negotiated draft text for the entire TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the largest-ever economic treaty, encompassing nations representing more than 40 per cent of the world’s GDP. The WikiLeaks release of the text comes ahead of the decisive TPP Chief Negotiators summit in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 19-24 November 2013. The chapter published by WikiLeaks is perhaps the most controversial chapter of the TPP due to its wide-ranging effects on medicines, publishers, internet services, civil liberties and biological patents. Significantly, the released text includes the negotiation positions and disagreements between all 12 prospective member states.

How Did We Get Here? How Do We Get Back?

How Did We Get Here?  
How Do We Get Back?

Commentary by TPATH Contributor
Israel Teitelbaum

November 15, 2013

How did we get to the point where:

  1. the law of the land is in the hands of one man – resembling a dictatorship?
  2. the federal government is in command and control of our personal lives?
  3. we have elected a President and Representatives who could not pass the honesty test to be hired by anyone?

This has been many years in the making. It began where all begins – in kindergarten, first grade, second grade and on through high school and college. The very day parents were financially compelled to forfeit their human and civil right to raise and educate their children, is the very day our constitutional liberties began to fall by the wayside. Liberty, as life itself, is indivisible. When we old-timers went to school, we were taught the famous quote of Patrick Henry, “Give me liberty or give me death.” This appears to have been replaced with, “Give me money, pleasure and power, or else...”

Restoring Constitutional Government requires that we go back to where we left the track. We must restore liberty, by empowering EVERY parent to send their children to the school of their choice, provided they are taught and trained to adhere to the laws of the land and the Constitution – unlike what is now being taught in many of our public schools.

This can ONLY be done by you. You need to contact your representatives and insist they pass legislation that will empower EVERY parent to send their children to the school of their choice – without raising taxes at all. Public education, on average, is costing more than double than that of nonpublic education. Insist they pass legislation to allow parents an educational voucher valued at half of current public school costs, and if they refuse, you need replace them with those who will!

If you are waiting for someone else to do this, you can be sure they are also waiting for you. If we are to restore Constitutional Government, this needs to be done by EVERY ONE OF US.

The future is now in your hands. If you fail to act, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Much success in your worthy efforts.

Is EPA Trying to Skew Climate Change Study for the Obama Administration? #tcot

Is the EPA Trying to Skew Climate Change Study for the Obama Administration?

“When governments can weigh in and request alterations to a scientific analysis, the message is clear."

by BILL STRAUB | November 14, 2013

WASHINGTON – Republican critics of global warming theories are attempting to determine if Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy is exercising undue influence on the conclusions of an upcoming climate change report from a United Nations agency.

Four GOP members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, led by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), the panel’s ranking member, are concerned that McCarthy is attempting to skew the results of a study from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to reflect the Obama administration’s own apprehension about the purported warming phenomenon.

In a letter to McCarthy dated Nov. 4, the lawmakers cited evidence that the universe is actually in the midst of a 15-year hiatus in temperature increases, asserting that the finding discredits global warming “alarmists.” Yet new reports indicate the EPA is lobbying authors of the IPCC report to conclude that the reduction in warming is linked to heat being transferred to the deep ocean.

“It appears that the U.S. did not suggest an alternative conclusion that the models themselves were flawed,” the Republicans said.

Vitter further said the IPCC’s shortcomings represent “a great embarrassment for a significant number of researchers and politicians who have been demanding costly international and U.S. actions.”

UN’s “Climate Change” to Transform the Economic Structure of the World #tcot

UN’s “Climate Change” to Transform the Economic Structure of the World

by Cathie Adams
Eagle Forum International Issues Chairman

The United Nations’ climate change meeting began Monday in Warsaw, Poland, to discuss “global warming,” but when the globe stopped warming 16 years ago, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change was forced to reveal its real agenda.

Last year in Doha, Qatar, the treaty’s Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres told the world that the purpose of the UNFCCC is a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.” The scheme is to use the eternally unpredictable weather that affects everyone to manipulate a transfer of wealth from rich to poor nations, which in turn degrades every nation’s standard of living.

Rather than serving as a warning to Americans, President Obama’s delegation in Warsaw is steadfastly supporting the development of funding mechanisms for the transfer of wealth scheme through the Green Climate Fund, although it is somewhat reluctant to support its proposed new mechanism for “loss and damages.” A new treaty to replace the redistributionist Kyoto Protocol is in the works and set for completion in 2015 in Paris, France, to go into affect in 2020.

Americans are paying for the rope to hang ourselves.

Foreign entities impacting Floridians today - November 13, 2013 by Melinda Meikle

Most residents of Florida would be shocked to realize how the United Nations has established a formidable presence in the sunshine state. As The United Nations casts its long shadow over representational government via local and regional economic development/sustainability plans, such as Seven50, to silently weave a web which runs contrary to economic freedom, property rights and individual liberty. 

History shows this anti-freedom progression starting decades ago. The World Heritage Treaty of 1972 granted special powers to designate selected American treasures as “World Heritage Sites and Properties” and “Biosphere Reserves.”  Since that time, 68 percent of all U.S. national parks, monuments and preserves are controlled by United Nations UNESCO, including the Everglades in Florida. Paragraph 3(c) states the World Heritage Committee will, [S]eek to ensure an appropriate and equitable balance between conservation, sustainability and development, so that World Heritage properties can be protected through appropriate activities contributing to the social and economic development and the quality of life of our communities.” This has lead to the creation of the Atlas of Florida’s Natural Heritage published by Florida State University Institute of Science and Public Affairs and Florida Natural Inventory.

Remember, Remember the 10th of November #tcot

Remember, Remember the 10th of November

Would the proposed Constitution create the limited federal government promised?

That was the central question facing the ratifying conventions as America considered adopting the new Constitution. Those in favor of ratification swore it would. But many remained skeptical, arguing that the new general government would undoubtedly try to expand its power and that the Constitution would not sufficiently restrain it.

It only took a decade for the federal government to prove the anti-federalists right.

During the summer of 1798, Congress passed, and President John Adams signed into law, four acts together known as the Alien and Sedition Acts. With winds of war blowing across the Atlantic, the Federalist Party majority wrote the laws to prevent “seditious” acts from weakening the U.S. government. Federalists utilized fear of the French to stir up support for these draconian laws, expanding federal power, concentrating authority in the executive branch and severely restricting freedom of speech.

If you think Barack Obama has gotten a free ride from the press, consider the case of Bill de Blasio.

The New York Post revealed at the last minute that the Marxist frontrunner for mayor of New York City visited Communist Russia in 1983. But the paper’s bizarre cover headline, “Back in the USSR,” complete with a hammer-and-sickle, seemed to make a mockery of the discovery.

International communism, which claimed more than 100 million lives, is not a laughing matter, nor just the subject of a 1968 song by the Beatles.

Described by CNN as the “unabashed liberal,” de Blasiois actually to the left of Barack Obama, in the sense that de Blasio didn’t disavow his communist background once it came to light. At least Obama tried to cover up his ties to communist Frank Marshall Davis.

De Blasio had scrubbed the Marxist connections from his campaign website, an omission that momentarily captured the attention of The New York Times. But once these connections and controversies came to light, he embraced his sordid history. He still embraces liberation theology and his work for the communist Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

Nobody believed the purpose of his “honeymoon” to Cuba was actually a honeymoon, but the media didn’t even bother to check into how he made the illegal trip and whether the FBI had developed a file on the candidate.

De Blasio was so open about his Marxism that on Sunday, he campaigned with Harry Belafonte, who during the Cold War sang at a “Concert for Peace” in communist East Germany, where he attacked President Reagan’s anti-communist foreign policy. A long-time supporter of the Castro dictatorship, Belafonte was also an ally of the late Venezuelan Marxist ruler Hugo Chavez.

Trevor Loudon, author of The Enemies Within, has commented on de Blasio’s commitment to “democratic socialism” and the significance of his work for David Dinkins, the former New York City mayor who was closely associated with the Democratic Socialists of America. Dinkins was associated with high crime rates and out-of-control spending.

Amending The U.S. Constitution By STATE-Led Convention #tcot

Amending The U.S. Constitution by STATE-Led Convention

Indiana's Model Legislation


The authors of the Constitution included the state-led amendment option for a reason. It is on equal footing with the Congress-led amendment option and was meant to serve as a check on a runaway federal government. 


To this point in our nation’s history, all Constitutional amendments have been proposed by Congress. However, there is a widespread sense by millions of Americans that we are at a moment in the life of our nation unlike any we’ve experienced before. Many believe Washington is broken, with Congress either unable or unwilling to control and reform itselfregardless of which party is in power. States’ rights have been trampled almost to the point of extinction. This is exactly the environment that calls for the states to exercise their right under Article V to call an amendments convention.
