So the daughter in law of one of the most evil senators in American history, the wife of a former president, and the mother of a former president has now decided that her second political son is the best qualified person in the whole country to be president. Well, with such an endorsement, who are we to question?
“I say in this country, which is such a great country, there are more than three families. Then I read that ‘The Bully Pulpit’ by Doris Kearns Goodwin. She points out that in 1700, there were only three families. So maybe it’s OK. It just seems to me ridiculous in a country this size that we didn’t have other families. I mean we’ve got great governors…other people. I just don’t understand it. And maybe Jeb’s given all he should give, because he’s worked awfully hard for a long time. But he is the best qualified person in the country, there’s no question about it.”
The Daily Caller noted yesterday that Jeb Bush has a little Common Core Problem…
“If Jeb Bush runs for the Republican presidential nomination, he may face pushback from the tea party — and not just for the reasons you might expect…
…the former Florida governor is reportedly calling major donors to discuss a possible presidential run. But tea party leaders, both nationally and in Florida, tell The Daily Caller that Bush would have trouble getting their support because of his strong backing of Common Core.”
The Bush family has had an 80 year run in American Politics and despite the lust they all seem to exhibit for power, money, and continual trillion dollar money streams from various sectors of the economy, I believe it is time for them to retire from public life and let some others step up to serve. I don’t often agree with Maureen Dowd, but her latest on a Jeb Bush/Hillary Clinton contest for President made me feel so nauseated I just about threw up. The fact that Barbara Bush showed up on Fox News a few days after her piece made the rounds is evidence to me that Jeb is planning a run for POTUS.
In her piece titled Brace yourself for Hillary and Jeb she said:
“OY. By the time the Bushes and Clintons are finished, they are going to make the Tudors and the Plantagenets look like pikers.
Before these two families release their death grip on the American electoral system, we’re going to have to watch Chelsea’s granddaughter try to knock off George P.’s grandson, Prescott Walker Bush II. Barack Obama, who once dreamed of being a transformational president, will turn out to be a mere hiccup in history, the interim guy who provided a tepid respite while Hillary and Jeb geared up to go at it.”
The thing is both the Bush and Clinton families have used their political connections to make money hand over fist is ways that would make our founders turn over in their graves.
Now we have Jeb with his paws all over Common Core and as a education whistleblower I just feel the need to use this post to share a few examples of Math homework that showed up on my Facebook wall this morning. A Mom is Utah posted her second grade child’s homework from last night:
Now the Mom shared how her child tried to solve the first box, but was so confused about what was being asked that he did not finish his homework. She said in all of her years of having children in elementary school she has never seen homework like this.
The Cato Institute published a report today titled Common Core End Game.
“This was utterly predictable. Core opponents, who are so often smeared as conspiracy mongers, know full well both what the President has proposed in the past, and how government accumulates power over time. RTTT was the foot in the door, and once most states were using the same standards and tests, there was little question what Washington would eventually say: “Since everyone’s using the same tests and standards anyway, might as well make federal policy based on that.” Perhaps given the scorching heat the Common Core has been taking lately, most people didn’t expect the administration to make the move so soon, but rational people knew it would eventually come. Indeed, the “tripod” of standards, tests, and accountability that many Core-ites believe is needed to make “standards-based reform” function, logically demands federal control. After all, a major lesson of NCLB is that states will not hold themselves accountable for setting and clearing high academic bars.
While it’s a crucial fact, the full story on the Common Core isn’t that the feds coerced adoption. It is that the end game is almost certainly complete federal control by connecting national standards and tests to annual federal funding. And that, it is now quite clear, is no conspiracy theory.”
So I guess the question parents have to ask themselves is why would the elites want to dumb down American School Children and compel taxpayers to pay for the abomination every step of the way?
For these people and their families it is all about control…
The money is secondary to the goal of keeping them in charge and unbelievable amounts of money rolling into the coffers from various money making streams. Education, Health Care, Oil, Pharma…the overall goal of intoxicating We The People with toxic food, water, air, school curriculum, and DRUGS keeps all of us sick, dumb, distracted, indebted, and powerless while they and their children and grandchildren reap and reap and reap off the ignorance of the electorate.
It is time for my pals on the right to wake up and realize that we have been played by a power mad, money grubbing family!
Here are a few more visuals to help delineate what it all looks like:
