The Report Card: Pearson Forced to Reprint Islam-Biased Textbook in Florida

Pearson Forced to Reprint Islam-Biased Textbook in Florida

By Bill Korach www.thereportcard.org

Bill Korach and Fox News’ Catherine Herridge
at CFNS Conference
Dr. William Saxton, Chairman of Citizens for National Security told The Report Card that as result of CFNS efforts – and for the first time as far as anyone related to these K-12 textbook issues knows – a major publisher, Pearson Prentice Hall, had to correct the content of an already printed flawed textbook that it intended to sell to a huge school district in Florida, and reprint it, before it could be purchasedDr. Saxton earned his doctorate in Applied Physics from Harvard and spent much of his career in the United States Intelligence community. He founded CFNS as a result of concerns that Islamic terror organizations Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood were spreading misinformation and indoctrinating students in American schools.

The new 2013 high-school history book, “World History,” was slated for delivery to Palm Beach County (PBC) students for use at the beginning of the current school year. CFNS documented Islam bias and misinformation in a report co-authored by Dr. Saxton and Report Card Publisher William Korach. That 92-page report, published February 2012 documented Islam-biased errors and misinformation in 25 textbooks in Florida. CFNS participated in a marathon meeting with PBC curriculum specialists and a Pearson representative to delineate their concerns and recommend corrections. Following that, Dr. Saxton testified about the book’s bias before the PBC School Board. After further review, the Board concurred with the CFNS position, and determined that much of the textbook’s contentious language be revised, consistent with CFNS’s recommendations, as a condition for purchase.
Because the textbook had to be reprinted, students didn’t have a world history text until well into last fall. But now, at least, the textbook will be accurate.

Martin County Government Gone Wild: How Elected Officials Tried To Hide, Alter Records!

Martin County Government Gone Wild: How Elected Officials Tried To Hide, Alter Records!

Former Martin County Commissioner Anne Scott: Not my fault! (Anne Scott campaign)
A former judge who lost her reelection battle to rookie Commish Harold Jenkins in November, Scott also gave us a preview of what she’ll tell the jury during the three-week trial: It just wasn’t her fault!
And she’ll no doubt tell the jury she knows who did it:
“The County Administration headed by Taryn Kryzda, and the County IT department, headed by Kevin Kryzda, (husband of the Administrator who has the sole authority to hire, fire, discipline or promote),” Scott wrote in an email to Gossip Extra. “They had a flagrant and perhaps intentional disregard of the public records laws.
“They had no procedures or policies in place to handle either the actual records or requests for records. No measures or serious attempts were made to insure compliance with the law. The county was derelict.
“Focus on individual commissioners is misplaced. This is particularly so because they were not parties to nor called as witnesses in the litigation It is the County Administration that was negligent, perhaps criminally so, with regard to its obligations in reference to public records.”
Alrighty, then!

Steve Bannon Picks a Side in Pennsylvania Governor’s Race – The Morning Call


Steve Bannon picks a side in Pennsylvania governor's race


Sept. 26, 2017 by MARC LEVY of the Associated Press

HARRISBURG — President Donald Trump hasn't endorsed a candidate in Pennsylvania's gubernatorial election next year, but Scott Wagner might have something close to it: Steve Bannon's stamp of approval.
Bannon, the divisive ex-Trump strategist, urged a conservative gathering at a St. Louis hotel on Sunday to support the Republican state senator from York County.
Conservatives could start “taking” the country back in Tuesday's U.S. Senate GOP primary in Alabama, where Bannon and Trump campaigned for different candidates, and “when Scott Wagner runs in Pennsylvania,” Bannon told the gathering.
Wagner, a Trump supporter who runs the municipal waste-hauling company he founded, spoke right before Bannon at the gathering and criticized not only Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf but also his fellow Republican lawmakers.
Harrisburg, he said, is a “real swamp.”
Wagner told the crowd that his two-hour trip flying to St. Louis with Bannon left him “500 percent more emboldened.”
“Tomorrow in Pennsylvania the gloves are coming off and the message is, `The hardworking Pennsylvanians, you're being shafted by the corruption in Harrisburg, OK?“’ Wagner said. “Career politicians, Democrat and Republican. But I now see firsthand serving in the Senate. We now have a veto-proof majority, we went to 34. I watched Republican leaders giving our governor a free pass, and you know what? Enough is enough.”
What Wagner was talking about, Bannon told the crowd, was not about beating just Democrats but also the Republican establishment.

“The first thing we've got to get through is a corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment,” Bannon told the crowd to cheers.
Republicans in Congress have failed to support Trump's “populist, nationalist, conservative” message and ideas, Bannon said.
About 400 people were at the rally hosted by Phyllis Schlafly Eagles, a spinoff of the conservative think tank Eagle Forum, which Schlafly founded and led until her death last year.
Former health care consultant Paul Mango, of suburban Pittsburgh, also is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Wolf's bid for a second term next year. Meanwhile, lawyer Laura Ellsworth, of suburban Pittsburgh, has said she is seriously considering running and is expected to announce a decision around the end of September. House Speaker Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny, has been silent about his plans to run.
Wagner said Bannon asked him a lot of questions on their flight together to St. Louis, which Wagner chartered from Baltimore. Primarily, he said, Bannon peppered him with questions about why he is running and about Pennsylvania, his campaign and his message.
“So, he said, `Pennsylvania taxpayers are getting the shaft by cronyism and special interest groups,“’ Wagner said.
