Pushing for a one-world government
What do you think parents and teachers would do if they knew the National Education Association publicly advocates a one-world school board while striving to eliminate district-level school boards?
Public school teachers across the country are paying union dues to that same association that supports the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
UNESCO openly states in its resource manual: "In its education program, it can stress the ultimate need for world political unity, and the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization, to help the emergence of a single world culture."
In their 1951 work, "UNESCO: Purpose, Progress, Prospects," former UNESCO officials Walter H.C. Laves and Charles A. Thompson identified the ancestor of the U.N. organization as the Soviet All Union Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries, or the "Voks," whose goals included "the world union of intellectual forces for the triumph of genuine world culture."
Former top communist Joseph Z. Kornfeder, concurs: "UNESCO corresponds to the agitation and propaganda department in the Communist Party. This department handles the strategy and method of getting at the public mind, young and old."
For more than 15 years, Bill and Hillary Clinton have been traveling the world drumming up business for a one-world government
In a speech in 1997 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Clinton announced: "What I'm trying to do is to promote a process or reorganization of the world. If we can prove that you can merge integrated economies and integrated democracies, then we'll be more likely to build a global system."
And while he continues globetrotting today under the cloak of his Clinton Global Initiative, his wife just happens to travel the world as U.S. Secretary of State. No connection there, right? Got a big swamp for sale outside Phoenix for you, too.
And here is a little bit of that agenda:
"17. Get control of the schools. Soften the curriculum."
"20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of editorial writing, policy making positions."
"28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools."
"31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history."
"40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce."
These strategies can be found in the 45 "Current Communist Goals" as published in the 1963 U.S. Congressional Record.
Folks, the NEA is one of the largest political action committees in the country. It cares little about American education. But don't take my word for it, do your own research and trace their roots back to their true origins. And then you won't have to ask why our country is in the sorry state we find it today.

First, we had Bill Maher, who just a few days after the 9-11 attacks, stated how brave and courageous the terrorists were by flying planes into buildings while our military played it safe by only firing missiles from jets at a safe distance.
When the network cancelled his show over the overwhelming public outrage, Mr. Maher cried like a little girl on national television saying he was only a comedian. Bill, no one laughed.
Now we have MSNBC host Chris Hayes, while interviewing for Memorial Day a United States military officer who had the tough job of notifying the families of U.S. military men and women killed in action of the death of their loved ones, that (Hayes) felt very uncomfortable calling the fallen military men and women heroes.
Mr. Hayes stated that his family - whose father is a community organizer, whose mother is with the New York teachers' union and whose brother registers voters for an offshoot of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - are the real heroes.
Somebody should inform these "uber" liberals, who hate our country, that there are a lot of liberal Democrats as well as conservative Republicans, who gave their lives for our great country.
This Memorial Day saw people of all races, colors, religions, creeds and ideologies pay homage to the brave men and women of the United States military and their families who sacrificed so much for each and every one of us.
President Obama even made special overtures to our Vietnam veterans on Memorial Day for the treatment they received upon returning home. All Americans who love our country unite in support of our military.
So yes, Bill Maher and Chris Hayes, we thank the military for their bravery and courage, and we thank them for their service to our country; they are heroes, and we are fortunate to have them protecting our great nation.

Social Security rights
Every day it seems as though a federal government spokesperson or politician refers to the Social Security program as an entitlement program that we can no longer afford.
However, in many cases, participants who actually worked and paid into the program will have paid more, including interest, into the fund than they will ever receive in benefits.
In my case, my payments and interest to expected date of death will total $810,000 vs. expected benefit payments of $615,000.
In the 1960 Supreme Court case of Flemming vs. Nestor, 363 U.S. 6031960, the government successfully denied benefits to a participant who claimed that he had a right to those benefits.
However, the Supreme Court did leave a door open for further action by stating, "this (ruling) is not to say that Congress may exercise its power to modify (Social Security) free of all constitutional restraint. The interest of a (Social Security participant) under the act is of sufficient substance to fall within the protection from arbitrary governmental action afforded by the due process clause."
In the event that the federal government attempts to severely limit our Social Security benefits, this case may provide a basis for defending our rights.

When I opened both papers this morning, both the Today paper and the Orlando Sentinel had an article by Kathleen Parker titled "Politics at its filthiest."
This administration has already gone around our Constitution, around the Congress, insulted the Supreme Court before and is now taunting Chief Justice (John G.) Roberts with threats to stop him from voting against their Obamacare.
The crooked Chicago machine has run wild in Washington with this administration. When are you people going to wake up to what is happening in Washington. Do you really want the government to run every single part of your life?
As (President Ronald) Reagan said, government is not the answer, Government is the problem. We also keep hearing about Romney's wealth, what about Palosi's wealth as her husband has big companies and is very wealthy, the Kennedys were also very wealthy and made their money from bootlegging, Obama is not poor either and many other Democrats are very rich, but all the media keeps harping on is Romney. The liberal lame stream media will never print anything that might affect Obama. Wake up out there before our country as we know it will be no more. I also never read Eugene Robinson's column as he is a left wing liberal.
