Mom Says She Uncovered ‘Very Shocking’ Content When She Decided to Look Over Her Child’s Vocabulary Lesson | TheBlaze.com.

The parents of a high school student in Farmville, North Carolina, are seeking answers regarding a Common Core-aligned vocabulary assignment given to their child that they claim is essentially Islamic propaganda.

The assignment was reportedly given to seniors at Farmville Central High School and included several pro-Islamic messages.

The worksheet reportedly read: “In the following exercises, you will have the opportunity to expand your vocabulary by reading about Muhammad and the Islamic word.”

The assignment used the words astute, conducive, erratic, mosque, pastoral, and zenith in sentences about Islam.

“The responses to Muhammad’s teachings were at first erratic. Some people responded favorably, while other resisted his claim that ‘there is no God but Allah and Muhammad his Prophet,” one sentence read.

A parent, who asked to remain anonymous, told the news outlet that it was “very shocking” to read the religious material.

“I just told my daughter to read it as if it’s fiction. It’s no different than another of fictional book you’ve read,” she said.

One of the students who was reportedly in the class in which the assignment was given told FoxNews.com that she was “caught off guard” by the content.

“I just looked at it and knew something was not right – so I emailed the pages to my mom,” the student added.

A Pitt County Schools spokesperson reportedly confirmed the assignment is from a state-adopted workbook that meets “Common Core standards for English Language Arts.”

“Our school system understands all concerns related to proselytizing, and there is no place for it in our instruction/ However, this particular lesson was one of many the students in this class have had and will have that expose them to the various religions and how they shape cultures throughout the world,” the district said in a statement.

After the usual impeccably choreographed all-night “negotiation,” delegates of almost 200 nations at the latest annual U.N. climate yak-fest – this time in Lima, Peru – reached the usual agreement not to agree on anything except that the process by which they profit must continue.

Not one delegate made any mention of the fact that every single one of the mad scientists’ predictions about the global warming and consequent planetary doom has failed to happen.

Notwithstanding record increases in CO2 concentration, global temperature has stubbornly failed to rise at all for 18 years, two months and counting.

The rate of warming in the 25 years since the first report on the subject in 1990 by the U.N.’s climate panel has been less than half what its useless computer models then predicted.

Sea level is not really rising at all. Global sea ice is at a record high extent. There have been fewer tornadoes in the U.S. in the past three years than since records began. The area of the world under drought has fallen for 30 years. There is no increase in the intensity, frequency or duration of flooding, nor in tropical cyclones, nor in hurricanes, nor in typhoons.

In short, the climate is behaving much as usual. As many records for extreme cold are being set as for extreme heat. Not so long ago, for the first time in recorded history, all 50 states of the U.S. – including Hawaii – had snow on the ground at least somewhere.

Not one of these inconvenient truths has been uttered by any of the national negotiating delegates. They are locked in a time warp, isolated from all reality. And the cost is staggering.

Even Australia – whose prime minister has rightly described catastrophic manmade global warming as “cr-p” – has donated $200 million to a U.N. slush fund, the “Green Climate Fund,” which will make the bureaucrats rich and the rest of us poor.

For and on behalf of the bankrupt United Kingdom, the Children’s Coalition has pledged $1.1 billion to the same slush fund.

The United States is spending hundreds of billions on making non-existent global warming go away.

Why?

As Ayn Rand foresaw in her towering philosophical novel, “Atlas Shrugged,”the “looters,” as she so aptly described the rapacious left, would strive and strive until they had robbed almost all of us of our ability to think.

Independent thought would be banned. Adherence to the party line would be mandatory. Anyone who thought for himself would become an outcast and would eventually be punished and, if possible, killed.

The truth is that the state-run schools are places not of thought but of indoctrination. Once upon a time, everyone who aspired to a higher education would be taught first grammar, then logic, then rhetoric, so that he could not be easily fooled.

Not anymore. However fancy and expensive the “education” received by the useless negotiators in Lima, not one of them has been taught how to think. Otherwise, surely someone would have broken ranks, firmly, and spoken up as I did at the Doha climate conference two years ago.

I pointed out, mildly, that there had been no global warming for 16 years.

Was there an outburst of spontaneous cheering at the news that there is no climate “crisis” after all? No. Instead, I was booed and jeered at and banned for life.

Why?

No one wants his gravy train tipped into the gulch. That’s why. Also, the delegates were afraid – afraid of someone who, in a dictatorship, was willing to speak out and tell the truth, knowing that there was a risk he could end up in jail.

The forces of darkness, however much they lie, however much they sneer at those of us who tell the truth, are more terrified of the truth than of anything else.

In their consciences (for they still have them, deeply buried somewhere), they know the truth. They know that the money they are squandering to enrich the U.N. and its pampered Fauntleroys should really be spent on electrifying Africa, India and China. That would do more for the global environment than anything.

But no. They will not do the obvious until everything more profitable to them has been tried.

I have already noted in this column the paramount importance of ensuring the inclusion in the Paris Treaty next December of a get-out clause allowing any nation to resile from its obligations on giving a few months’ notice.

I now propose a further modest measure, which you may like to draw to the attention of your senators (without a two-thirds majority of whom no treaty can bind the United States).

All obligations under the Paris Treaty should lapse if at any time at least three of the five principal global-temperature datasets (HadCRUT, GISS, NCDC, RSS and UAH) show no global warming for at least 20 years.

At present, the RSS dataset shows no warming for 18 years and two months. The others would have shown no warming for 14 years, but the three terrestrial datasets have been tampered with this year to show more warming than has actually happened. However, there is a limit to the possibility of tampering, because the satellites of RSS and UAH are watching.

In the Scottish Parliament a couple of days ago, I asked three representatives of the “renewable-electricity” lobby what contingency plans they had if there was not a lot more global warming.

One looked me in the eye and said that his organization – a consultancy group – maintained a business-as-usual scenario in its modeling. The other two would not look me in the eye. Instead, each of them made a declaration of faith in the new religion and in the holy books of IPeCaC. I was sharp with the pair of them.

We must now make the unthinking governing class aware of its obligation to require the modelers to model the possibility of little or no further global warming. By this gentle step, we shall hope to bring our rulers back to sanity on this question.

In the meantime, 60 percent of Scotland’s once-beautiful landscape now has wind farms on it. Tourism is likely to collapse if this goes on. Even in my beloved Rannoch, which has been spared the attentions of the racketeers so far, there will soon be windmills many hundreds of feet high.

I have told the chairman of the Renewables Committee of the Scottish Parliament that I should like to address it and let it hear the other side of the case. He did not seem keen. For our biggest problem from now on will be to convince the global governing class to admit it was wrong and change its mind, before any more trillions are squandered.

And that won’t be easy. For governments can never be wrong, and global tyranny – which is what we’ll get if we don’t look sharp in the next 12 months – will always have the power to force us to accept that it is right, whether we like it or not.

Freedom is our birthright. The forthcoming climate treaty – if the failed Copenhagen draft of five years ago is any guide – may yet prove a greater threat to liberty than fascism or communism. For it is the same threat writ global, albeit with the jackboots and guns very carefully hidden – for now.

Wisconsin Police Dept Ask Residents To Volunteer To Have Homes Searched For Guns – Freedom Outpost

Wisconsin Police Dept Ask Residents To Volunteer To Have Homes Searched For Guns – Freedom Outpost.

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, Police in Beloit are asking city residents to volunteer to have police search their homes for guns, as part of a new effort to reduce gun violence.

Their police chief, Norm Jacobs, said he didn’t expect tons of volunteers, but he hopes the effort helps people to think about gun violence like an infectious disease like Ebola, and a home inspection would act like a vaccine to help build up the city’s immune system, reported WPR.

“Gun violence is as serious as the Ebola virus is being represented in the media, and we should fight it using the tools that we’ve learned from our health providers,” he said.

Jacobs thinks that some searches will result in the discovery of guns they didn’t know were in their own homes. He also said that guns linked to crimes could also be discovered.

“That’s really what we’re looking for. Maybe we’ll find a toy gun that’s been altered by a youngster in the house — and we know the tragedies that can occur there on occasion,” he added.

There have been seven gun homicides in Beloit, population 36,888, which is south of Janesville, on the Illinois/Wisconsin border.

Jacobs’ statement is so bizarre and should raise eyebrows for 2nd Amendment activists. Yes, we should fight domestic violence by educating the community but gun confiscation is not the answer. In the current environment where the police state is expanding and becoming more violent toward citizens, why would anyone “volunteer” and allow law enforcement to search their home? Is possible that this policy is just another “backdoor” gun control measure and attempt to circumvent the 4th Amendment?

Obama’s Mental Illness Justifies His Removal from Office Under the 25th Amendment – Freedom Outpost

Obama’s Mental Illness Justifies His Removal from Office Under the 25th Amendment – Freedom Outpost.

History has shown that most of the brutal dictators of the past have share two or three mental illnesses. These illnesses include Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), Paranoid Personality Disorder (PPD) and Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Given the direction of the country, it is legitimate to ask whether or not this President is indeed mentally ill. In my professional opinion, any combination of two of these mental illnesses would prevent a President from discharging his duties as prescribed by the Constitution of the United States.

The Twenty-Fifth Amendment-Section Four

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President…”

If the President could be shown to mentally ill, under the 25th Amendment he could be removed from office. With the publicly available information, and based upon my training and experience in mental health diagnostics, I have conducted a mental health status exam of this President.

The Mental Illnesses of Dictators

Before analyzing President Obama according to these criteria, based upon observed public behaviors, please allow me to make a few general observations with regard to three conditions.  Narcissistic Personality Disorder
 (NPD) sufferers believe that they are entitled to special privilege and that the rules of society apply to others but not to them. Paranoid Personality Disorder (PPD) individuals are people who are unusually suspicious in situations in which most people would not be concerned. They frequently change allies and lack stable relationships in their lives. Finally, Anti-Social Personality Disorder (ASPD) people are a combination of what we used to call a sociopath and a psychopath. These people are capable of doing great harm to another human being without feeling any empathy and remorse. This is the central element in the personality structure of a person who would commit genocide against their own people.

The remainder of this article explores if the current President is indeed mentally ill based upon the universally agreed upon diagnostic criteria as set forth by The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM).

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

In order for a person to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) they must meet five or more of the following symptoms:

  •  Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
  • Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
  • Requires excessive admiration
  • Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
  • Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
  • Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
  • Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
  • Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

Five out eight of these symptoms are sufficient cause to warrant a positive diagnosis. Obama is one of the most self-righteous people on the planet and we have numerous quotes which exemplify this point.

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming America.” Very few Americans had any idea what Obama meant by that quote. Six years into his presidency, it is clear that Obama meant to turn this country into an impoverished nation devoid of civil liberties. This is the ultimate expression of the communist legacy that he is trying to build.

This president does not tolerate normal criticism which comes with the territory of being a president. He has consistently sponsored legislation which inhibits the constitutionally guaranteed rights of legitimate protest with his support of the NDAA. This is the ultimate in haughtiness.

Obama exhibits extreme signs of feeling a sense of entitlement. His incessant misuse of the power of executive orders provides prima fascia evidence that “his will be done” and that he is above the law with regard to violating the constitutional rights of the American people.

Obama is an extremely exploitative person. However, in the grand scheme of politics, it is a needed survival skill to take advantage of people in one’s climb to the top of the political world. Therefore, is Obama exploitative by nature, or, do the political realities of his position dictate the emergence of this trait as a survival skill? The jury is out on this one.

You did not build that business.” Remember that insulting and impersonal slap in the face of every small business owner in America? This statement is reflective of Obama’s view that nobody is bigger than “my” government.

The President’s statement in which he bragged he was really good at killing people by using drones speaks to his extreme level of insensitivity.

Of the eight traits associated with this disorder, I see seven of the eight with the eighth trait not being supported due to a lack of evidence.

President Obama clearly suffers from NPD. People with NPD can indeed function to some degree in society. However, they often make very ineffective leaders because they almost always put their needs ahead of the needs of the people they purport to serve.

Paranoid Personality Disorder

To make a positive diagnosis for this disorder, I would have to possess intimate details about the life of Obama. Unfortunately, that information is not readily available. Here are the traits of PPD.

  • Suspects, without sufficient basis, that others are exploiting, harming, or deceiving him or her
  • Is preoccupied with unjustified doubts about the loyalty or trustworthiness of friends or associates
  • Is reluctant to confide in others because of unwarranted fear that the information will be used maliciously against him or her
  • Reads hidden demeaning or threatening meanings into benign remarks or events
  • Persistently bears grudges (i.e., is unforgiving of insults, injuries, or slights)
  • Perceives attacks on his or her character or reputation that are not apparent to others, and is quick to react angrily or to counterattack
  • Has recurrent suspicions, without justification, regarding fidelity of spouse or sexual partner

Certainly, Obama’s known childhood experiences could be explored as a baseline of this part of the examination; what childhood experiences? Exactly! Who is his high school basketball coach? Do his teachers remember him? Who in the world is he? When you couple this hidden childhood with that of living with Frank Marshall Davis, undoubted scarred him and left him with feelings of extreme abandonment. This factor, alone, could prove to be the breeding ground for PPD.

As I have previously covered, I know that most of his first-degree relatives were involved in MK Ultra. Certainly the breeding ground for PPD is in place given his unstable background.

Since we lack highly detailed information about his personal life, it is difficult to affirmatively diagnose Obama with this disorder, except for one thing. Since becoming president, Obama has fired nearly 260 command level officers from the military. In contrast, President Bush fired two. This would be the expected actions of a highly paranoid individual in that he would dismantle the command structure of military in such a significant manner. Although I cannot point to the fact that Obama has a requisite number of traits which determines that he is suffering from PPD, I think it is highly likely.

Antisocial Personality Disorder

Of all the mental illnesses we could examine with regard to a leader’s propensity to commit extreme violence against his people, this would be the most concerning of all the mental illnesses. This disorder also happens to be where Obama has exhibited extreme pathological behavior with regard to this affliction. The traits of ASPD are as follows:

  • Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest
  • Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure
  • Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead
  • Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults
  • Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
  • Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations
  • Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt an individual. They may display a glib, superficial charm and can be quite voluble and verbally facile (e.g., using technical terms or jargon that might impress someone who is unfamiliar with the topic). Lack of empathy, inflated self-appraisal, and superficial charm are features that have been commonly included in traditional conceptions of psychopathy and may be particularly distinguishing of Antisocial Personality Disorder in prison or forensic settings where criminal, delinquent, or aggressive acts are likely to be nonspecific. These individuals may also be irresponsible and exploitative in their sexual relationships (see the work of Jerome Corsi in this regard).

I wonder what Ambassador Stevens would say?

We know that this administration fired two senior command officers and prevented them from attempting to rescue Ambassador Stevens and his bodyguards, at Benghazi, while the attack was in progress. We also know that he and other senior level members of his administration watched by drone as the events unfolded and culminated in the deaths of Stevens and his team. As I have documented on this website, the evidence points to the fact that Stevens was the conduit which connected Obama to the arming of al-Qaeda in support of the Libyan and Syrian rebels.

Obama’s use of drones to kill not only foreign nationals, but three American citizens, speaks to his depraved indifference to human life. The fact that he is continuing the war in Afghanistan, despite his campaign promises to the contrary, speaks to his absolutely reckless disregard for human life. People have been killed by drones as they attend weddings, babies die in their mother’s arms, and children are maimed and killed by these machines and Obama brags that he is good at killing people with drones.

Obama has extreme superficial charm. After all, he twice fooled a nation of sheep with his manufactured demeanor. Obama is highly impulsive. His assistants do not know if he will attend an intelligence briefing or will he be on the golf course.

President Obama has never held a real job. He has served as a community agitator (err community activist), a state senator, a less than a one-term US Senator and then of course, a President. Where is his employment history? The bottom line is that this President has never held a regular job.

The President has engaged in repeated acts of lying and breaking the law as witnessed by the events at Benghazi, the NSA spy scandal, the IRS harassment scandal, Obama’s spying on AP reporters, Fast and Furious gun running to the Mexican drug cartels, etc. This administration has been little more than one great big criminal enterprise.

President Obama’s conduct in the handling of the Michael Brown crisis in Ferguson in which he clearly and intentionally exacerbated the crisis by dwelling on the “communities of color and their strained relationships with law enforcement”. As true, or inaccurate as this statement was, it served to incite violence from those who were already upset.  Presidential speeches are measured and weighted for their psychological effect on the public. Obama knew exactly what he was doing.

The sum total of Obama’s actions demonstrate a willful disregard for the welfare of others. ASPD individuals frequently use aliases. Do you think that “Barry,” the student attending Occidental College, would ever do such a thing?

Of the seven traits listed above, one would have to claim the presence of four of the seven traits in order to justify a diagnosis of ASPD. I see six of seven traits being exhibited by President Obama. His superficial charm, his lack of remorse for his heinous acts and his inability to learn from his mistakes, unquestionably cast him in the role of being an ASPD individual.

Conclusion

Obama may or not be paranoid, although his treatment of the military would indicate that he is. Unquestionably, President Obama is suffering from NPD and ASPD. This is very concerning because a leader with NPD would not hesitate to put his needs ahead of the country that he is leading. This fact, combined with his definitive diagnosis, of an ASPD sufferer means that a person with the combination of these two traits would not hesitate to carry out acts of extreme violence against individuals and groups perceived as being a threat to the authority and position of President Obama.

We, indeed, have much to be concerned over and based upon the evidence, I would encourage the Cabinet to invoke Section Four of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment. This President is not capable of discharging his duties under the disabilities clause.

Communism survivor: Common Core looks scary familiar

Communism survivor: Common Core looks scary familiar.

Say-No-To-Common-Core-Pins

A mother of three who came to America because of its reputation as a “shining city on a hill” is pleading with her state lawmakers to flee Common Core any way they can, calling it nothing less than the “communist core” she endured while growing up in China.

“Common Core, in my eyes, is the same as the communist core I once saw in China,” Lily Tang Williams told the Colorado state Board of Education recently.

“I grew up under Mao’s regime, and we had the communist-dominated education – nationalized testing, nationalized curriculum and nationalized indoctrination.”

Her testimony was reported by PJMedia, which said she warned against comparing test scores of American children with Chinese students.

“I am telling you, Chinese children are not trained to be independent thinkers,” she said. “They are trained to be massive skilled workers for corporations. And they have no idea what happened in Tiananmen Square in 1989 where government ordered soldiers to shoot its own 1,000 students.”

She wrote about the issue in a commentary posted by the tea-party group Freedomworks.

“We were told to chant everyday in the government run public schools, ‘Long Live Chairman Mao. Long Live Communist Party.’ We were required to write in our [diaries] every day and turn them in for teachers to review. In the [diaries], we were supposed to confess our incorrect thoughts to Mao or do self- criticism, or report anything bad we heard or saw from other students, family, and friends,” she wrote.

“We would memorize Mao’s quotations and recite them aloud during class. For school fun activities, we would dress up as Chinese minority people in their costumes to sing and dance, thanking Mao and the Communist Party [for] saving them from poverty.

“Mao was like a god to me. I would see him rising from the stove fire or talking to me from the clouds,” she said.

In school, she said, teachers had to comply “with all the curriculum and testing requirements, or lose their jobs forever.”

“Parents had no choice at all when it came to what we learned in school.”

And the government would use the various registration procedures to “keep track of its citizens from birth to death.”

Photos were on file, she said, accompanied by details on age, gender, parents, jobs, political class, religion, siblings, home address, grades, awards, punishments, “politically incorrect speeches” and more.

“It was shared by all the government agencies and employers.”

To obtain permission to travel to America, she said, she had to “sign a paper to promise to return to my job.”

“Even though I finally broke the tracking of Chinese government of me by coming to America, I still feel, sometimes, that I am haunted by my file,” she said, explaining today it is “somewhere in a local security or police office.”

“The worst, I fear, is that Common Core could be used by the government and corporations to do data collection and data mining on our children. What else could come to take away more of our rights and privacy? Our freedom is very precious and we must fight to keep it. Without freedom, you are just a slave, no matter how much money you have. Trust me to say this because I have lived under tyranny before and will never want to live in it again,” she said.

See her testimony:

The Common Core State Standards Initiative spells out what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. Forty-three states and the District of Columbia have adopted it.

But there are many others who are opposing them.

The Home School Legal Defense Association has released a video of parents testifying, sometimes very emotionally, of how the program has negatively affected their children.

“My older son took the test, did just fine,” said Elaine Coleman, a parent of public school students in New York.

But then her younger son went into third grade.

“Within a month, everything just bottomed out. He didn’t like school anymore. He said he was dumb. He said he was stupid. He didn’t understand anything. I didn’t know what to do help him,” she said.

The video, called “The Parent Interviews,” is a part of the HSLDA’s “Building the Machine.”

The first two states to fully implement the controversial standards were New York and Kentucky.

The documentary addresses the problems found by teachers, students and parents in the Washington-centric program as applied to classrooms.

Filmmaker Ian Reid’s project interviews parents, teachers and a social worker from New York, whose experiences with Common Core are first-hand.

Mary Calamia, a licensed clinical social worker interviewed, said she observed a significant increase in the number of students struggling with anxiety and depression since the Common Core’s implantation in the Empire State.

“What was so upsetting for [the children] was they couldn’t do the work, they feel stupid, they were extremely anxious, [and] extremely distressed about going to school,” she said.

The film is a follow-up to the highly successful documentary “Building the Machine,” which reviewed the creation and implementation of Common Core. It was released in March.

“We were really happy with the response to the ‘Building the Machine’ film. Most viewers felt that it was an excellent primer on the standards and their questionable background, but many also expressed that they wanted a more in-depth look at the Common Core and how the standards have impacted parents and children.” said Reid. “In response to those requests, we’ve put together an additional 20-minute documentary featuring parent interviews from the state of New York and six content-specific episodes that explore issues such as international benchmarking, high-stakes testing, datamining and more.”

Calamia said one student subjected to the new programming carved the word “Stupid” in her wrist.

Parent Christine Barbara reported she thought that her children were being bullied, abused or even molested because of the dramatic change in their personalities.

“I didn’t anticipate [a child] falling apart completely,” she said.

Gwendolyn Britt said Common Core “takes any any teacher’s creativity, takes away children’s creativity.”

“So we can compete globally?” she wondered. “I don’t want to compete globally.”

The documentary includes an interview with David Coleman, College Board president and chief mover behind the change. He explained his officials “could decide what was crucial and what was not.”

He said he’s using data from children as a “force” that moves kids forward.

Even mathematics classes are politicized in the controversial Common Core program for public schools, points out the world’s largest promoter of homeschooling.

WND has published a numerous reports on Common Core, including recently when Common Core curriculum author Jason Zimba admitted the standards don’t provide an adequate mathematics education.

“If you want to take calculus your freshman year in college, you will need to take more mathematics than is in the Common Core,” said Zimba.
