This is a common sense plan that will hopefully stop the indoctrination of our children by the Far left Marxists.  Nancy  P.S.   One of my grandsons who is 10 years old wears a cross on a chain around his neck.  He tells us that he feels there are some of his teachers who openly discriminate against him because  he is wearing a religious symbol,  Years  ago, when I was in school,  it was very common for  students to wear  crosses or St Christopher medals to school.   Discriminating against religious symbols is just another example of Cultural Marxism.  We see examples of its affect everywhere we look now – education, movies, corporations, churches, marriage, traditional family values and especially parental authority over their children’s education or gender identity.  It is well past time to bring back traditional values that were the foundation of our country.  

Trump’s Education Plan: End Fed Ed, Restore Prayer

.By Alex Newman October 18, 2023

The New Report. Originally published at

With virtually no media coverage, presidential frontrunner Donald Trump vowed to shut down the U.S. Department of Education and respect the authority of parents and states to oversee public education as part of a bold plan to bring about major changes. 

Shuttering the controversial department was just one part of a 10-point plan including restoration of prayer and patriotism unveiled by the former president last month. Taken together, Trump’s vision would rock the education establishment to the core.

“We’re going to end education coming out of Washington, DC,” explained Trump in a campaign video. “We’re going to close it up – all those buildings all over the place and you have people that in many cases hate our children. We’re going to send it all back to the states.”

Over a trillion tax dollars per year are poured into the government education system, Trump explained. And yet, instead of being at the top, “we are literally right smack — guess what — at the bottom,” the former president explained, pointing to racial, political and sexual indoctrination.  

Vowing to tackle the issue “very early” in his next term, Trump said his administration would be “sending all education and education work and needs back to the states.” “We want them to run the education of our children because they’ll do a much better job of it,” he said. 

“You can’t do worse,” the GOP contender explained about the current state of affairs. “We spend more money per pupil by three times than any other nation and yet we’re absolutely at the bottom — we’re one of the worst. You can’t do worse.”

The American Left’s Fantastic Threats

Book bans? Jim Crow redux? A crackdown on gay vacationers? Joe Biden and his party are seeing things.


Barton Swaim

June 23, 2023 .

President Biden’s re-election announcement video warned that “MAGA extremists are lining up” to repeal “bedrock freedoms.” Uh oh—what freedoms? The extremists plan on “dictating what healthcare decisions women can make, banning books, and telling people who they can love, all by making it more difficult for you to be able to vote.”

It was a perfect expression of the paranoid state in which American progressivism finds itself. Leave aside for a moment the line about “dictating what healthcare decisions women can make,” a euphemistic reference to abortion. The other threats on Mr. Biden’s list—“banning” books, “telling people who they can love” and voter suppression—are literally nonexistent. Mr. Biden isn’t engaged in the time-honored political craft of exaggeration. He’s seeing things that aren’t there.

Liberal commentators have been ridiculing conservatives for fearing negligible or nonexistent threats for as long as I can remember: communist infiltration during the Cold War, Islamic extremism in the 2000s, illegal immigration in the 2010s, gender ideology in the 2020s. The right might or might not have exaggerated the urgency of these problems. But they were, or are, problems. That isn’t the case with an array of issues Democratic politicians and progressive intellectuals are exercised about in 2023. You often feel they’re so invested in the idea of a delusional right that they can’t perceive their own penchant for dreaming up nonexistent threats.

Mr. Biden is worried about book bans. The American Library Association recently claimed in a report that 2,571 books were “challenged” in American libraries last year. These challenges the ALA calls “attempted book bans,” nearly all of which involve a request by a patron that a public library or school library remove a book from its shelves because it is obscene or otherwise offensive. I’m not sure such requests are improper—young-adult fiction has become sexually avant-garde and shockingly coarse over the past two decades. Anyway, to ask that a taxpayer-supported library not facilitate children’s access to a sexually explicit book isn’t to “ban” it. An interested patron may buy it and read it in public if he wishes.

Full Circle With the Southern Poverty Law Center

The SPLC has now infiltrated elementary schools, listing critics of politicized curricula as “extremists”
June 18, 2023, 11:12 PM

“Mom, this journal prompt is weird,” my son told me one afternoon in November 2019. He was a fourth-grade student at a private Montessori School. The students wrote weekly journal entries inspired by assigned articles to practice writing. “It’s kind of scary. Can you read it?” he asked me.

“Sure,” I answered.

He passed me the handout entitled, “Thanksgiving: A Native American View,” by Jacqueline Keeler. The commentary began with the author’s conflicted emotions about Thanksgiving in light of her American Indian ancestry. It quickly devolved into a threatening diatribe against Europeans: “I see, in the ‘First Thanksgiving’ a hidden Pilgrim heart…. We have seen the evil that it caused in the 350 years since. Genocide, environmental disasters, poverty, world wars, racism.” She asked, “Where is the hero who will destroy that heart of evil?”

I never imagined my 10-year-old would be charged to “destroy the heart in order to stop the evil” in elementary school lessons.

According to a school administrator, the “heart of evil” homework originated from national American Montessori Society curricula. Around the same time, diversity resources appeared on the school website, one being Learning for Justice from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

James Lindsay: How the Left Took Over Everything – THE DAILY SIGNAL

Nov  24, 2022  James Lindsay is the author of ‘Race Marxism’
James Lindsay first came to national attention after he and his colleagues published a series of hoax papers in social science journals to demonstrate their loose academic standards. Lindsay used to be a liberal, but recognizes the very real threat ideologies like critical race theory represent for America and became more conservative. “My position though, even when I did identify on the left in the past, has always been, ‘I’m going to hold the beliefs that I believe are the most accurate and where I fall is where I fall.'” Lindsay explains, before adding he’s “Team Reality.” Lindsay joins the show to discuss how he moved from being a liberal to a
conservative, and how we can help convince reasonable liberals in our lives about the danger of philosophies like critical race theory.

This is an excellent article explaining the history of  Cultural Marxism and how it has been dominating  our country.  I sent this article out a few years ago but  feel it is even more relevant today to explain the history of the decline of the culture of the U.S. The far left Marxists have been wildly successful in imposing their ideology on our youth, institutions, entertainment, even many of our religious institutions. Only with knowledge of their history and their methods do we have any hope of defeating them.    Please read and share with your contacts.  Nancy

Sometime during the last half-century, someone stole our culture. [I]n the 1950s, America was a great place. It was safe. It was decent. Children got good educations in the public schools. Even blue-collar fathers brought home middle-class incomes, so moms could stay home with the kids. Television shows reflected sound, traditional values.

Where did it all go? How did that America become the sleazy, decadent place we live in today – so different that those who grew up prior to the ’60s feel like it’s a foreign country? Did it just “happen”?

It didn’t just “happen.” In fact, a deliberate agenda was followed to steal our culture and leave a new and very different one in its place. The story of how and why is one of the most important parts of our nation’s history – and it is a story almost no one knows. The people behind it wanted it that way.

What happened, in short, is that America’s traditional culture, which had grown up over generations from our Western, Judeo-Christian roots, was swept aside by an ideology. We know that ideology best as “political correctness” or “multi-culturalism.” It really is cultural Marxism, Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms in an effort that goes back not to the 1960s, but to World War I. Incredible as it may seem, just as the old economic Marxism of the Soviet Union has faded away, a new cultural Marxism has become the ruling ideology of America’s elites. The No. 1 goal of that cultural Marxism, since its creation, has been the destruction of Western culture and the Christian religion.

To understand anything, we have to know its history. To understand who stole our culture, we need to take a look at the history of “political correctness.”


Early Marxist theory

Antonio Gramsci, a Marxist, is best known for his Critical Theory today. Critical Theory subjected every traditional institution, starting with the family, to endless, unremitting criticism in hopes to bring them down.

Hi Everyone,  I’ve been down here in The Villages in Florida for the past several weeks and had lunch today with a good friend and  one of our conservative ladies, Mary Lou Drake and her husband Bob and a few of their friends.  Of course, the conversation turned to the political problems we are having and someone mentioned Cloward & Piven.  After lunch Mary Lou did a little homework and found this 2015 article by Glenn Beck where he clearly lays out the roots of all the problems we are now having in our country.  Glenn Beck does a great job at giving us the historical background of how  these problems have been building.   Actually, back to  Woodrow Wilson and the creation of the Federal Reserve and through the 60’s and on.  So, sit back, pour yourself something a bit strong and read it and weep.!   Nancy   
Cloward & Piven and the Fundamental Transformation of America
Published May 15, 2015     By Glen Beck
I’m going to give you a hard concept to get your arms around: It’s the concept that there are people in this country who want to intentionally collapse our economic system. How could it be that any American would or would want to do such a thing? Well, those involved sleep just fine at night because they tell themselves that they’re not collapsing, they’re transforming — transforming — America into something better. The progressive movement in which these people are involved started around the turn of last century. These are the same people who gave us the Federal Reserve. They brought America the concept of redistribution of wealth through the progressive income tax, telling Americans at first that only the rich would be affected. They are the same people who felt that they knew better about your health than you did that they needed to force you to stop drinking alcoholthrough Prohibition. They brought us the League of Nations, then the United Nations. And their biggest contribution of all: They brought the understanding that our Constitution was a flawed, living, breathing document and that our Founding Fathers were a group of rich racists. Now, today’s group of progressives do not speak the same language as you and I do: Economic justice is taking from haves and giving to the have nots; social justice, to quote Mark Lloyd, is when someone needs to step down so someone else can have a turn, and transforming America means collapsing the state as we know it and rebooting it as a progressive utopia. None of the language is the same. What I would call socialist, they call social justice. That’s critical to understand; they really believe they’re making things better and they’re about to finish the process. They learned from their earlier failed attempts to transform America and the world, like the League of Nations. First, there can’t be a debate. They simply declare the debate over and that they have consensus already. Second, they can’t conduct their transformation in the open. And third, they can never let a good crisis go to waste. Now, as we discuss this, keep in mind that you’re watching all of this through your eyes; you see this as trying to collapse our economy. But progressives see this as a fundamental transformation — something better than we’ve ever had — as promised by Barack Obama: (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, OCT. 30, 2008) THEN-PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE BARACK OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. (END VIDEO CLIP) So, let me introduce you to the people you would say are fundamentally responsible for the unsustainability and possible collapse of our economic system: Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven, authors of the Cloward-Piven strategy. Something else to remember is that this isn’t some conspiracy theory that we’re tossing out; they wrote about collapsing the economy and how they planned to do it in the article they co-authored in the ’60s called, “Mobilizing the Poor: How it Could Be Done.” Six months later, it was published in The Nation, under the title “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.” So, just what is Cloward-Piven? Well, remember the tree:

Battle for the American Mind: Uprooting a Century of Miseducation Hardcover – June 14, 2022

by Pete Hegseth  (Author), David Goodwin  (Author)

New York Times bestselling author and FOX News host Pete Hegseth is back with what he says is his most important book yet: A revolutionary road map to saving our children from leftist indoctrination. 

Behind a smokescreen of “preparing students for the new industrial economy,” early progressives had political control in mind. America’s original schools didn’t just make kids memorize facts or learn skills; they taught them to think freely and arrive at wisdom. They assigned the classics, inspired love of God and country, and raised future citizens that changed the world forever.

Today, after 16,000 hours of K-12 indoctrination, our kids come out of government schools hating America. They roll their eyes at religion and disdain our history. We spend more money on education than ever, but kids can barely read and write—let alone reason with discernment. Western culture is on the ropes. Kids are bored and aimless, flailing for purpose in a system that says racial and gender identity is everything.

Battle for the American Mind is the untold story of the Progressive plan to neutralize the basis of our Republic – by removing the one ingredient that had sustained Western Civilization for thousands of years. Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin explain why, no matter what political skirmishes conservatives win, progressives are winning the war—and control the “supply lines” of future citizens.  Reversing this reality will require parents to radically reorient their children’s education; even most homeschooling and Christian schooling are infused with progressive assumptions. We need to recover a lost philosophy of education – grounded in virtue and excellence – that can arm future generations to fight for freedom. It’s called classical Christian education. Never heard of it? You’re not alone.

Battle for the American Mind is more than a book; it’s a field guide for remaking school in the United States. We’ve ceded our kids’ minds to the left for far too long—this book gives patriotic parents the ammunition to join an insurgency that gives America a fighting chance.

Human Flourishing Requires More Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas–Not Less Hardcover – May 24, 2022

by Alex Epstein  (Author)
The New York Times bestselling author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels draws on the latest data and new insights to challenge everything you thought you knew about the future of energy

For over a decade, philosopher and energy expert Alex Epstein has predicted that any negative impacts of fossil fuel use on our climate will be outweighed by the unique benefits of fossil fuels to human flourishing–including their unrivaled ability to provide low-cost, reliable energy to billions of people around the world, especially the world’s poorest people.

Luke Rosiak: Schools Use Woke Ideology to Hide Dismal Teacher Performance, Harming Minorities the Most

American Thought Leaders



“It is baked into the way that these schools operate to devalue academic achievement because they don’t want a paper trail of how they’re failing your kids,” says Luke Rosiak, an investigative reporter at the Daily Wire and author of “Race to the Bottom: Uncovering the Secret Forces Destroying American Public Education.”

Even before the pandemic hit, 66 percent of American 4th graders were scoring less than Proficient on the Nation’s Report Card assessment.

As minority students fall behind, schools in America are abolishing standardized tests, A-B-C-D-F grading scales, and entrance exams.

“In pursuit of equity, they have stopped measuring things. They started cooking the books. They started orienting everything around the lowest common denominator. And the result is really devastating for society,” Rosiak say

Exclusive Footage — Private Schools Nation-Wide Pushing ‘Queer Inclusive’ Curriculum, Trans Ideology Starting in Pre-K

By  Emma- Jo Morris   Feb 16, 2022

Private schools across the country are training teachers to expose kids as young as four years old to sexually explicit content — in secrecy and without parents’ knowledge — directed by the National Association Independent Schools (NAIS) as part of a “queer-inclusive” curriculum.

Breitbart News has reviewed an extensive trove of NAIS documents and teacher trainings supplied to private schools nation-wide, which, under the guise of being “queer” and “LGBTQ+ inclusive,” urge the use of graphic sexual material in classes starting at Pre-K.
