ISIS in Ciudad Juarez

Posted: September 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

Obviously, the Southern Border is dissolved for all intents and purposes. This is in harmony with the overall global plan to dissolve borders and make all countries operate under the same law and have the same types of societies while treating “culture and heritage” as anachronisms and quaint nostalgic ideas.

We’re all quite aware that our republic is falling apart at the seams. It seems that there is destined to be an attack on American soil very soon. The following article definitely gives us food for thought. As much as everyone can, please stock up on food, water and essential medications. As with firearms, it’s better to have and not need than to need and not have.

Feds in El Paso: Rep. O’Rourke Called to Ban Contact with Judicial Watch

 

 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

Federal law enforcement sources in El Paso say that a United States congressman called their office to prohibit contact with Judicial Watch in the aftermath of a disturbing story confirming that Islamic terrorists are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez.

Sources tell JW that Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat who represents El Paso in the U.S. House of Representatives, telephoned the area offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) in an effort to identify—and evidently intimidate—sources that may have been used by JW. On August 29 JW reported that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is working in Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).

In the piece JW cites high-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources confirming that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat. In the aftermath of JW’s story Ft. Bliss, an El Paso Army base near Juarez, increased security measures and the sheriff in Midland County Texas—located halfway between Ft. Worth and El Paso—confirmed that he received an alert bulletin warning from the feds that ISIS may have formed a terrorist cell in or near Juarez.

O’Rourke evidently believes that someone on the inside is feeding JW information because the facts in all our reporting have been correct, according to government sources with first-hand knowledge of the matter. “He called the El Paso offices of the FBI, HSI and USBP asking if anyone was talking to Judicial Watch,” one inside source told JW this week. O’Rourke’s calls were followed by a memo that came down through the chain of command threatening to terminate or criminally charge any agent who speaks to media of any kind. This would include JW, a nonprofit legal watchdog that has broken a number of government corruption stories on its website and newsletter.

Congressman O’Rourke’s office emphatically denies making any phone calls to any El Paso federal law enforcement offices related to this matter. His director of communications, John Meza, assures that no one in the congressman’s office—including the congressman himself—has talked to any law enforcement agencies or officials to discourage or question contact with JW or any other media outlet. “We don’t do that,” Meza said.

The Obama administration steadfastly denies that Islamic terrorists are operating in Juarez, even as facts continue to unfold proving otherwise. Though the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information it has issued statements in the media rejecting the story. Is it possible that the administration called upon a trusted ally, a federal lawmaker from the targeted area, to silence the whistle blowers?

After all, the administration has for years covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. JW has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. And who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”

 

OK! It’s time to get to the Nitty Gritty to
Stop Agenda 21
You Must Not Miss the Next 5 APC Webinars

From Tom DeWeese

In the first three FREE Monthly webinars I’ve shown you

  • Proof that our battle against Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is not a crazy Conspiracy Theory – I’ve even featured a video from Florida activists showing the arrogance of the planners who want you to just “shut up” and “trust them.”
  • The truth behind the NGOs who created Agenda 21, how they got to the United States and into your back  yard,
  • And the massive amounts of money they have to flood government at every level with their tyrannical policies – and where it comes from.

Now that we’ve built that foundation – now that you know who it is you are fighting — Now it’s time to…

Learn How To Stop Them!

That will be the focus of the next five monthly APC webinars. I am bringing to you some of the best minds in the freedom movement to show you how they are doing it. I will introduce you to activists who are fighting on the local level – just like you. I will introduce you to two of the most effective elected representatives who are carrying the fight on the state and county level. And I will bring you two of the most courageous “victims” of these policies (that the other side says don’t exist) and they will tell you what they did to fight back – what worked and what didn’t.

You will not learn this information anywhere else!

Here is the full schedule for the next five APC webinars:

Webinar Schedule

September 21st

I will introduce new tools and tactics and how to use them. Then I will introduce two leaders who are working on the front lines at the state and county level.

A.Mark Fitzgibbons – is an attorney and property rights advocate who helped write landmark property rights legislation to aid small farmers stand up to over-reaching county governments. That bill (The Boneta Bill) passed the Virginia state legislature. Now Mark is working on new legislative efforts that will make local and state officials responsible for their actions by removing their government shield of protection and allowing property owners to sue them directly. Hear Mark explain how this remarkable legislation will make overreaching officials think twice before they act.  He is also working on legislative ideas to stop zoning abuse – the root of Sustainable Development tyranny.  Mark Fitzgibbons is a one man revolution in the battle to rein in government sprawl and he will tell you how to do it in your legislature.

B.Rick Buchanan – is a local activist in Fauquier County, Virginia. His county government is getting a national reputation as one of the worst in the nation, essentially run by a tyrannical green group called the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC). They have worked in collusion with county elected officials and bureaucrats to harass property owners in the name of environmental protection. What is happening in Fauquier County is happening in nearly every community in America. That county is a perfect laboratory as a study on what is happening and what to do about it.  Rick Buchanan has been a leader in the fight to stop them. And his tactics are valuable to every freedom fighter in the nation. What happens when the Greens power structure is challenged? What will they do to fight back? How do you counter it? Rick has faced it all and is developing effective strategies for precinct organizing, creating alternative news sources and dealing with a reluctant GOP establishment that doesn’t want to fight back. Rick Buchanan is the activist you want in every state. He will tell you how to organize in yours.

October 19th 

1. John Anthony – Head of Sustainable Freedom Lab, is a leading expert in dealing with Planners. He has met with them, he has debated them, and he has studied their goals, tactics and funding. John knows how to confront them and how to stop them. John has created a special report entitled “Inside the World of Planning” and he will show you the tactics they use behind the scenes to create regional planning and enforce Sustainable Development in your community and in your state. He’ll show you how grants taken voluntarily by local governments come attached to federal and international development dictates. The most important aspect of John Anthony’s presentation is that he is able to describe the intent, implementation and dangers of planning in a simple, clear manner that’s easy for everyone to understand. John Anthony is a leader in organizing local community activists to fight back against Agenda 21 

2. Hal Shurtleff/Larry Cleveland – Hal Shurtleff is a field coordinator for the John Birch Society and has been a tireless organizer in the fight against Agenda 21. We have been allies for years.  Larry Cleveland used to be just a normal resident living in a quiet town called Rindge, New Hampshire. Then one day Larry found out about some strange policies coming out of his city council that were going to affect his private property. He was horrified when he discovered new Sustainable Development policies about to invade his quiet town. He eventually teamed up with Hal Shurtleff and the battle was on. Larry created “Save our Town” and the result was that Rindge, New Hampshire succeeded in kicking Agenda 21 out. Step one was to get the town out of regional planning. Step two was to force local government to get voter approval before taking HUD grants. Step three was to elect the right people to the local government in the first place. They did all three. Hal Shurtleff and Larry Green have written the text book for stopping Agenda 21 at the local level and they are going to tell you how they did it.

November 16th

1.Through most of the 20+ years of my fight against Agenda 21, the one missing element was an elected official who would listen to us. Then one day that changed when one man learned about Agenda 21 and decided to run for county commissioner. Not only did he decide to run himself, but he put a team together to run united against it. They won and took over the country government of Carroll County, Maryland. They became the first local government to kick out ICLEI, then they fired the county Sustainability manager hired by the previous administration; then they sent back the county comprehensive plan to the planning commission, telling them to fix it so it protects property rights and adheres to the Constitution of the United States. Since then he has made amazing progress in reducing government overreach and securing true liberty in his county. He has been targeted by the Sustainablists and the Unions and he has beaten them all.  This American hero – Commissioner Richard Rothschild – will join us for this incredible webinar session to tell us how he did it and what we can all do to duplicate his efforts.

2. In 2009 I met an outstanding young legislator from the State of Washington. In fact, I met him at the Freedom 21 Conference he attended in Dallas to learn more about Agenda 21. Since then he has become an outstanding leader in the fight, even holding his own conferences on the issue. More importantly, he organized a coalition of like minded legislators in the Washington state legislature and they put together the Freedom Agenda complete with legislation to curb the tide of government over reach and restore liberty. This past session the coalition experienced significant victories.  This American hero – Representative Matt Shea – will also join us in this one incredible session to tell us how he did it and what we need to do in our own legislatures to duplicate it.

December 14th    

Nine days before Christmas I’m going to get you into the holiday spirit by sharing some maddening, yet inspirational stories of two regular Americas who suddenly found themselves in the middle of the Sustainable vice grip. These are victims of the monstrous policies in which Scrooge style government has become so corrupt under the outrageous power of Sustainable planning policies that they no longer care how they affect individuals who are just trying to live their day to day lives. They will tell what happened to them; the hopelessness they faced and how they rose up to fight back. One was successful and one was not. We’ll tell you why in both cases.

Martha Boneta, the organic farmer from Virginia has been under siege by the county government, in collusion with the Piedmont Environmental Council, because she refused to get a special permit to allow her to have a birthday party for a friend’s ten year old daughter. She had her farm store shut down, still faces an IRS audit, harassment from the PEC and a court case. Martha Boneta has fought an incredible battle that has had a major impact on small farmers across the state and perhaps the nation. 

I’ll also have one more victim’s story to share with you.

After these presentations, I am going to announce plans for the January session in which I’ll announce a 5 point plan to Stop Agenda 21.

January 18th

 Announcement of the Five Point Plan

This is what it has all been leading up to. I started work on this plan over a year ago, but had to put it on hold when I got sick in February, 2013. Since then I’ve learned new things and have been able to improve the plan. Now it’s ready. All of my 47 years experience in political activism tells me this plan, if and when fully implemented, will create a force like has never been put into the fight against Agenda 21. I said my goal was to crush it and I meant it and this is the plan. OJanuary 18, 2015 I will announce the plan and tell  how you can make use of it as an effective tool in your fight.  

Now, today, this is our moment. This is our chance to crush Agenda 21. But it will only happen if you join us. 

From this point forward, from September, to October, to November, to December the webinars will be a building block toward a specific goal – to assure that thousands of American property rights activists and pro-freedom patriots are trained and ready to fight – all leading to the very special webinar session in January when I will release the details of the five point plan to crush Agenda 21

So, I urge everyone who wants to end this tyranny to go into the archives and view the previous three sessions. Then mark you calendar to join us on September 21. Above all, get your friends, neighbors, members of your activist groups, family, elected officials who may be a friend. I need everyone possible to build our ranks for these free webinars. We have had a steady 1200 people participating so far – but to win we need thousands more. That will create a grassroots political force unlike anything the Sustainablists ever could have anticipated.  We can become their worst nightmare.

We can crush Agenda 21 and start the drive to end this massive government overreach, rising taxes, shortages of energy destruction of business, and trampling of property rights. That is Agenda 21. Please join me to make it happen.

This is pretty intensive information. If you are concerned about Common Core and the sworn duties of elected officials, please read through it.

Common Core: Fred Sauer Sues Governor Nixon 
On September 12, 2014, the lawsuit Sauer v. Nixon was filed in Cole County Circuit Court. The lawsuit challenges payment of $4.3 million of Missouri taxpayer funds to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, an entity implementing tests aligned to the Common Core State Standards (“Common Core”). Among other claims, the suit alleges that the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is an unconstitutional Interstate Compact, created without Congress’s consent.

How many of you realize that the largest component of the Missouri State Government budget is for education? Using the proposed FY2015 Governor’s Operating Budget, education accounts for 47% of it. The two components are Elementary and Secondary Education at $3.349 billion and Higher Education at $0.979 billion. The total is $4.238 billion. If Missouri spends Real Estate Taxes at a level equal to the national average, this would account for an additional $3.92 billion.  This gives a grand total for Missouri of $7.168 billion in education expenses.

Unbeknown to most of us, Governor Nixon has given effective control over all this money to the Federal Department of Education, Achieve, and other Common Core-related entities. He did this in a series of machinations wherein he avoided all public accountability to “we the people” who pay for the education by these state taxes and local real estate property taxes. Based on the amount of total money, $7.168 billion “we the people” provide, it was his most basic responsibility to make a complete disclosure and representation to all the citizens of Missouri before surrendering effective control over all this money to the Federal Department of Education.

Have any of you ever heard of Achieve?
From the Achieve website:

Our Board of Directors
At the 1996 National Education Summit a bipartisan group of governors and corporate leaders decided to create and lead an organization dedicated to supporting standards-based education reform efforts across the states. To do so, they formed Achieve as an independent, bi-partisan, non-profit education reform organization.

Please note that there are only 4 other people besides Jay Nixon as directors! Imagine, just five directors.
One of the greatest regulatory frauds and power grabs committed against the people of the United States of America has been the evolving federal requirement as promulgated by the Federal Department of Education that all states must adopt Common Core Education Standards.

Governor Jay Nixon has unilaterally cooperated with the Federal Government, the Federal Department of education, and other sponsored entities in every way, without approval of the legislature or voters. In so doing he has ignored and violated specific federal laws and regulations that preserve and protect state authority over educational policy at all levels. As stated in the lawsuit, Sauer v. Nixon:

24.       In 1965, Congress enacted the General Education Provisions Act of 1965, 20 U.S.C. § § 1221 et seq., which provides:
No provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system, or over the selection of library resources, textbooks, or other printed or published instructional materials by any educational institution or school system.
20 U.S.C. § 1232a. This restriction was later made applicable to all programs administered by the federal Department of Education. 20 U.S.C. § 1221(c)(1).
        25. Similarly, the Department of Education Organization Act of 1979, 20 U.S.C. § § 3401 et seq., which established the federal Department of Education, provides:
No provision of a program administered by the Secretary or by any other officer of the Department shall be construed to authorize the Secretary or any such officer to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system, over any accrediting agency or association, or over the selection or content of library resources, textbooks, or other instructional materials by any educational institution or school system, except to the extent authorized by law.
20 U.S.C. § 3403(b).
       26.       The Department of Education Organization Act reflects Congress’s clear intent that States and local governments retain control over education policy and decision making:
It is the intention of the Congress in the establishment of the Department to protect the rights of State and local governments and public and private educational institutions in the areas of educational policies and administration of programs and to strengthen and improve the control of such governments and institutions over their own educational programs and policies. The establishment of the Department of Education shall not increase the authority of the Federal Government over education or diminish the responsibility for education which is reserved to the States and the local school systems and other instrumentalities of the States.
20 U.S.C. § 3403(a).
       27. Echoing these principles, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (“ESEA”), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (“NCLB”), 20 U.S.C. § § 6301 et seq., provides that “[n]othing in this Act shall be construed to authorize an officer or employee of the Federal Government to mandate, direct, or control a State, local education agency, or school’s curriculum, program of instruction, or allocation of State or local resources.”
20 U.S.C. § 7907(a).
28. Moreover, the ESEA prohibits the Department of Education from using funds under the statute “to endorse, approve, or sanction any curriculum designed to be used in an elementary school or secondary school.” 20 U.S.C. § 7907(b).
        29. The ESEA further provides that “no State shall be required to have academic content or student academic achievement standards approved or certified by the Federal Government, in order to receive assistance under this Act.” 20 U.S.C. § 7907(c)(1).
        30. In enacting the ESEA, Congress contemplated that decisions regarding “the specific types of programs or projects that will be required in school districts” would be “left to the discretion and judgment of the local public educational agencies.” H.R. Rep. No. 143, 89th Congress, 1st Session, 5 (1965).
***
        32. In 2009, the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers announced an initiative to develop the Common Core State Standards (“Common Core”).
***
37.       On February 17, 2009, the U.S. Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“ARRA”). Sections 14005 and 14006 of the ARRA provided for federal grant funding to the states related to education. Section 14005(d)(4) provided for grant funding relating to “standards and assessments,” and provided that recipient states would “take steps to improve State academic content standards and student academic achievement standards….” Section 14006 provided for remaining funds to be used as state incentive grants in FY 2010 for states “that have made significant progress in meeting the objectives of paragraphs (2), (3), (4), and (5) of section 14005(d).” 123 Stat. 115, 283 (2009). ARRA did not mention or authorize common state educational standards, or “consortia” of states.
38.       On or about June 25, 2009, without authorization by the Missouri legislature or the requisite signature of the highest state education official, Governor Nixon unilaterally signed a “Memorandum of Agreement” with the National Governors Association that purported to commit Missouri to adopting a “common core of state standards (common core) in English language arts and mathematics for grades K-12.”
***
39.       On or about November 18, 2009, the U.S. Department of Education issued an invitation to the States to apply for Race to the Top (“RTTT”) grant funding, pursuant to the ARRA. See 74 Fed. Reg. 59836 (Nov. 18, 2009). This invitation conditioned RTTT grant funding on, in part, “[t]he extent to which the State has demonstrated its commitment to adopting a common set of high-quality standards.”
***
40.       To satisfy key criteria for grant funding under RTTT, a state thus had to commit to adopting a “common set of K-12 standards,” i.e. Common Core.
41.       On or about January 18, 2010, Governor Nixon and Commissioner Nicastro signed an Application for Initial Funding for RTTT funds. In this application, Governor Nixon and Commissioner Nicastro purported to assert “Missouri’s commitment to Common Core Standards development and adoption.” Even though the Common Core Standards had yet to be finalized, the application definitively stated that “Missouri will begin transitioning to the Common Core K-12 Standards and Career Ready/College Ready Standards upon their adoption.” On information and belief, this application was submitted without the authorization of the Missouri legislature.
***
44.       On or about April 14, 2010, Commissioner Nicastro signed a “Document of Commitment” to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (“SBAC”). See Document of Commitment (attached as Exhibit 2, and incorporated by reference herein). This document purported to commit Missouri to serve as a “Governing State” in SBAC.
45.       On or about May 20, 2010, Commissioner Nicastro signed a “Memorandum of Understanding” with SBAC. See Memorandum of Understanding (attached as Exhibit 3, and incorporated by reference herein). This Memorandum of Understanding also purported to commit Missouri to serve as a “Governing State” in the SBAC consortium.
46.       On or about May 25, 2010, Governor Nixon also signed the same Memorandum of Understanding with the SBAC consortium. See id. On information and belief, the Missouri legislature never authorized this Memorandum of Understanding.
47.       By signing the Memorandum of Understanding, Governor Nixon and Commissioner Nicastro purportedly committed Missouri to “[a]dopt the Common Core Standards.
***
48.       The Memorandum of Understanding purported to commit Missouri to:
(a) “Adopt common achievement standards no later than the 2014-2015 school year”;
(b)      “Fully implement statewide the Consortium summative assessment in grades 3-8 and high school for both mathematics and English language arts no later than the 2014-2015 school year”;
(c) “Adhere to the governance as outlined in [the Memorandum of Understanding]“;
(d)  “Agree to support the decisions of the Consortium”;
(e)  “Agree to follow agreed-upon timelines”;
(f)  “Be willing to participate in the decision-making process and, if a Governing State, final decision”; and
(g) “Identify and implement a plan to address barriers in State law, statute, regulation, or policy to implementing the proposed assessment system and to addressing any such barriers prior to full implementation of the summative assessment components of the system.”
Id. At 3.
***
56.       From its inception, Governor Nixon and Commissioner Nicastro’s purported commitment of Missouri to Common Core was in violation of Missouri law. Missouri law in effect in 2009 and 2010 provided that the state Board of Education had authority to adopt “no more than seventy-five academic performance standards.”
***
58.       SBAC’s grant application explained that SBAC would develop a uniform “multi-state assessment system based on the Common Core State Standards.” The application further stated that “the role of [SBAC] is to influence and support the development and implementation of learning and assessment systems to radically reshape the education systems in participating States . . . .” (Emphasis added.)[2]
In signing all these documents, Jay Nixon has intentionally and effectively seized over $7.65 billion of State and local taxes and turned them over to the illegal control of the Federal Department of Education. Local control of schools has been a permanent principle of education since the days of its founder Horace Mann. All this is proven by the federal statutes forbidding the federal government and its regulators from doing exactly what they have done. This was a completely illegal takeover of the expenditure authority of the general assembly because the money is going to organizations shielded from public disclosure laws.

Jay Nixon’s approval of the regulator fraud against “we the people” is at a minimum a breach of his fiduciary responsibility to the citizens of Missouri. What governor would ever attempt to impose such a dramatic and fundamental change of the control of the state financed public education without a complete and thorough public disclosure and debate with the citizens of the state?

Government Fines Against Yahoo For NSA Cooperation Would Have Cost More Than A Real Death Star

 

Court documents unsealed last week revealed how the government used fines and secrecy to force Yahoo into becoming one of the first Silicon Valley giants to cooperate with NSA’s PRISM program — documents that included a clause that would have taken the financial coercion into another galaxy.

The clause in question would have doubled the daily $250,000 fine of refusing to hand over customer data every week with no cap — a cost The Washington Post broke down into some terrifyingly hilarious examples. (RELATED: U.S. Government Threatened Yahoo With Massive Fines To Force NSA Compliance)

Refusing the 2008 request would have drained Yahoo’s total revenue that year of $7.2 billion in three months. Two more months later, the fines could have paid off the entire U.S. national debt, at the time of $9.5 trillion.

By the tenth month, Yahoo’s fine would equal the cost in steel of building George Lucas’ infamous plant-sized “Death Star” battle station, which — in this case — would have been capable of destroying an entire planet’s economic value in less than a year.

Eventually by the end of one year, the stack of $100 bills could travel to the sun and back 28,769 times, making for a total of $7.9 sextillion.

 

ZCommonCore2Common Core has simply got to go. Aside from the fact that it serves as a federal intrusion into what should be state-run educational curriculums, Common Core is rife with obscene propaganda that indoctrinates children and offers laughable methods of learning that is truly indicative of a bureaucratic mindset.
Whereas once children were told to learn how to do math through tried-and-true methods, the geniuses at Common Core have invented innumerable new ways to convolute math in a manner that is predictably the kind of thing one might expect to see from a bureaucracy.
According to toprightnews.com, a mother saw the ridiculous method by which her child was supposed to solve an equation and she stepped in. Below is a picture of her response:
 ZCommonCore
Common Core poses many dangers to our children. Beyond the obvious flaws of a “one size fits all’ form or federal education, the standards also instill a “groupthink” mentality- an instilling in children that needlessly complicating the learning process in order to accept what the federal government says is the correct approach over what common sense should prove is ridiculous.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you feel we should try and stop Common Core.

Important Event in Ozark

Posted: September 13, 2014 in Uncategorized

From Dr. Mary Byrne:

 

Attention SW Missourians and those of you who know voters in SWMO:
WHAT: Conservatives Protect Our Local Schools Press conference is holding a press conference in SWMO to kick off a get out the vote campaign to defeat Amendment 3 on the November ballot.
 
WHEN: Tuesday, September 16, 2014 @ 10:00 am
 
WHERE: Ozark Courthouse, 102 W Brick, Ozark MO 65721
WHY: Amendment 3 is an insidious initiative to turn local control of classrooms to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. It would constitutionally protect a badly designed teacher evaluation plan embedded in the Common Core State Standards Initiative and described in Missouri’s No Child Left Behind Waiver application.
BE INFORMED: I have attached two documents.
(1) a Word file that breaks down the language of Amendment 3 to expose its negative effects. The table shows the initiative petition language and the real meaning of the language. If Amendment 3 is passed, local school boards will lose their authority and discretion over criteria for retaining, promoting, demoting, dismissing, removing, discharging and setting compensation for certified staff — that’s right, teachers are re-categorized as staff, which is another agenda I will not dwell on here.; and
(2) an e-mail from within DESE that was sunshined earlier this year and exposes changes Commissioner Nicastro made to the fiscal note worksheet for Amendment 3 that hides the significant costs and risk of lawsuits to local districts if it passes. Commissioner Nicastro’s collaboration with initiative proponents was reported in newspapers throughout the state:
You may have read that proponents of Amendment 3 have folded their tent and will not actively promote the issue, but proponents are counting on a low voter turnout of conservatives because only one down ballot statewide position is up for election.

State representatives from the SWMO area will be present to show demonstrate their opposition to Amendment 3.
Please contact as many people in SWMO as possible to turn out for this press conference and show proponents of Amendment 3, SWMO is protecting local control of our schools.
