General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


The Founding Fathers recognized the value of checks and balances when they formulated the Constitution and its Bill of Rights. Yet for many decades those checks and balances have been blurred, especially when it comes to education.  One of the latest and most prominent examples of the abuse of the federal system is the promotion of Common Core, a defacto national curriculum forced on the states from above.  Only a handful of states has resisted the temptation of federal dollars intended to remove educational diversity from the local level.

The good news is US Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kansas), has introduced a bill to remove the financial incentive for adoption.  He is joined by Senators Chuck Grassley (R- Iowa), Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio).

In a press release Senator Roberts says, “Setting high standards for our schools, our teachers and our children is the right thing to do, but those standards should be decided in Kansas, without bribes or mandates from Washington.  We need to get the federal government out of the classroom, and return community decisions back to where they belong — in the community.”

The Learning Opportunities Created At Local Level Act (S. 182) prohibits federal officers and employees from using “grants, federal contracts or other cooperative agreements” to promote Common Core.

One reason Common Core is so controversial is that it employs “operant conditioning,” a technique similar to the one used by Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov to teach dogs to salivate at the ringing of a bill.  Under this type of training, students may regurgitate memorized facts given the proper stimulus, but they do not gain appreciation for context or the ability to generalize.

Roberts’ bill is far from a done deal.  Citizens contacting their Senators would be helpful for passage.
