The dumbing down of America is accelerating. A massive federal takeover of education known as “Common Core” is attempting to impose nationwide academic standards on public schools throughout the entire country. Thanks to the backing of billionaire Bill Gates, endless promotion by the U.S. Department of Education, and financial bribes to state governments by the Obama administration, 45 states and Washington, D.C. have already agreed to implement the full Common Core standards in their schools. Unfortunately, these “standards” are doing to public education what Obamacare is doing to our health care system – absolutely ruining it. Just look at how basic math instruction has changed. Posted below is a comparison between the “old method” of subtraction and the “new method” of subtraction being taught in many of our schools. When I first came across this on Facebook, I thought that it was a joke…
Did you get a chance to see the debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye “the Science Guy” the other night? It was definitely entertaining. Unfortunately, it didn’t do much to clarify the issues that millions of Americans tuned in to learn more about. In fact, viewers got a lot of information from Bill Nye that simply is not true. For example, Bill Nye made it sound like science has discovered fossil layers all over the earth that are neatly stacked on top of one another with less evolved creatures in the earlier layers and more advanced creatures in the upper layers. He also made the incredible claim that you cannot find a single fossil which is in the wrong layer. This is such an elementary mistake, and exhibits such a complete ignorance of what the fossil record actually shows, that he should have been laughed off the stage. This is exactly the kind of extreme anti-intellectualism that Nye was supposedly trying to warn people about. Sadly, our society has been so “dumbed down” that there are lots of people out there that will actually believe him.

If the federal government is so concerned about the threat of terrorism, then why is it doing so little to protect our most critical infrastructure? The control freaks in charge of our “national security” seem to be absolutely obsessed with watching us and taking away our liberties and freedoms, but meanwhile they are leaving many of the most important potential targets virtually unguarded. It is almost as if they are not even concerned that terrorists might attack them. For example, as you will see below, not a single one of our 104 commercial nuclear reactors would be able to handle a “maximum credible terrorist attack”. The federal government also refuses to spend the money necessary to protect our electrical grid from being fried by a massive EMP blast even though the earth had a “(Read More...)
In America today, there is an all-out attack on the values that this country was founded upon. Many of the people that are involved in these attacks actually claim to “love America” and yet they viciously attack the values and the principles that were foundational to what early Americans believed. In particular, there are two documents that were greatly cherished in early America that are being relentlessly assaulted today: the U.S. Constitution and the Bible. In colleges and universities all over America, students are being taught that these documents are “flawed” and that they need to “evolve” as society changes. Those teaching this philosophy honestly believe that modern values are far superior to the values found in those documents. They are convinced that it is foolish to be “bound” by the wisdom of the past. That is why they love to refer to the U.S. Constitution as a “living, breathing document”. They believe that they should be able to “reinterpret” the Constitution without going through (Read More...)
The thought police are watching you. Back in the 1990s, lots of jokes were made about “political correctness”, and almost everybody thought they were really funny. Unfortunately, very few people are laughing now because political correctness has become a way of life in America. If you say the “wrong thing” you could lose your job or you could rapidly end up in court. Every single day, the mainstream media bombards us with subtle messages that make it clear what is “appropriate” and what is “inappropriate”, and most Americans quietly fall in line with this unwritten speech code. But just because it is not written down somewhere does not mean that it isn’t real. In fact, this speech code becomes more restrictive and more suffocating with each passing year. The goal of the “thought Nazis” is to control what people say to one another, (Read More...)
