BUT LET'S LOOK AT WHO IS BEHIND IT
In 1934, the Carnegie Corporation said we are going to use the schools to change the US from a free market system to a planned economy. In a planned economy, as in Communist countries, the administration chooses at an early age what your child will do all throughout their lives. They want your child to decide by 5th grade! I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!
This plan was carried out with the signing of the education agreements by President Reagan with the Soviet Union in 1985 and 1988. The Soviet polytech system is being implemented right now with students being tracked into specific training at an early age to suit the needs of the corporate fascist global economy.
Vouchers and education choice originally came from the left and was sold to the right. Now, both the right and left support this shift in emphasis from academics to work force training. This is proven by the fact the elites from both parties, including the globalist, NWO U.S. Chamber of Commerce; the internationalist Aspen Institute, of which UN Agenda 21 Maurice Strong was Director; President Obama, his Secretary of Education Arne Duncan; the Heritage Foundation and all other neo-con Trotskyite groups; AND the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (founded in 1921 by the global-minded Rockefellers) support charter schools and vouchers.
Chris Whittle's Edison Project (Whittle was in Knoxville, TN originally). was an early pioneer in public/private partnerships in K-12 education in America. The project had countless members and financiers such as:
Vanderbilt University professor and former Assistant Secretary of Education in the Reagan Administration, Chester Finn, a noted neo-con education “change agent," who is deeply involved in the school choice/work force training agenda and John Chubb of the liberal Brookings Institution and Center for Education Innovation.
The words of John Chubb and Terry Moe, of The Brookings Institute and Stanford University respectively, -- “Our guiding principle in the design of a choice system is this: Public authority must be put to use in creating a system that is almost entirely beyond the reach of public authority.” (Politics, Markets and America's Schools, 1990) This is elimination of the local school boards, elimination of community input, and is blatant "taxation without representation."
Chubb was on the Executive Committee of the Center for Educational Innovation, an independent project of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, another neo-con group loaded with CFR members like Dick Cheney and Condoleeza Rice. The Center's work is made possible by grants and gifts from: The Chase Manhattan Bank, Exxon Education Foundation, The Lauder Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation and others.
Lawrence C. Pierce delivered a paper to Aspen Institute in 1976 entitled "School Site Management," which called for education vouchers. School Site Management was an early term used by the NEA in the 80s and 90s. The call for the use of vouchers which will supplant "choice" is essential for the international school-to-work program.
Globalist World Federalist member, Mortimer Adler, was one of the most visible facilitators for the Aspen Institute of Humanistic Studies which was developed in the 40s. This group is responsible for training most of our govt. leaders in the dialectical process of reaching consensus. His book, "The Paidea Proposal," was used to introduce the concept of charter type schools into mainstream school reform.
The Director of Aspen, Walter Isaacson, makes a base pay of $760,425. per year.
The left started the whole voucher/choice/charter school designs for American education. It has been sold to the nation's conservatives by the Heritage Foundation.
SO, NOW LET'S LOOK AT HERITAGE FOUNDATION
The 1955 UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) book, MENTAL HEALTH IN EDUCATION, is the earliest reference to the need for "choice" in education. The Charter Schools concept, strongly marketed around the country by Heritage affiliates in every state, attempts to link patriotic free enterprise themes to a blatantly unconstitutional system of corporate fascism to business/government partnerships in the education of children.
Today, Edwin J. Feulner, is the president of Heritage Foundation. His yearly income including deferred compensation is $1,098,612. Former Attorney General, Edwin Meese, takes home half a million a year from Heritage. Feulner is a charter member of the Council for National Policy as was the original president and co-founder of Heritage, Paul Weyrich until 1974.
Who is the Council for National Policy? They are a rightwing group founded in 1981 by oil man, Nelson Bunker Hunt; Dominionist Pat Robertson of Christian Broadcasting Network; Tim LaHaye who finds no problem in accepting millions from cultist Sun Myung Moon; and T. Cullen Davis of Texas, twice tried for murder and attempted murder of his wife and her friend. The CNP was allegedly founded to counter the Council on Foreign Relations, but the charter membership roster had 5 CFR members on the board.
Richard Mellon Scaife, (Chase Mellon Bank) and heir of the Carnegie-Mellon fortune, has been on the board of trustees of Heritage since 1985, and the Sarah Scaife Foundation has donated nearly $16 million to Heritage and initially funded them $900,000 to get them started.
There were other financiers of Heritage, Amoco, General Motors, Chase Manhattan Bank (through David Rockefeller) and Olin and Bradley, a right-wing foundation. Feulner was recruited in 1977 by Richard Mellon Scaife to become Heritage president. One must remember that Scaife funds both sides of the aisle and is a strong pro-abort and proponent of taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.
Heritage's Richard Allen first proposed the idea of creating a North American free trade zone from the Yukon to the Yucatan. In Charlotte Iserbyt's recent article on Heritage Foundation, she states, "What we are looking at now in education is a result of NAFTA which got the ball rolling in the development of work force skills standards by the National Skills Standards Board, endorsed by the U.S. Labor Department Secretary’s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) This study originated under Labor Secretary Elizabeth Dole in 1990 and eventually led to the School-to-Work Opportunities Act and the dumbing down of American education curriculum for workforce training."
And from education researcher, Chey Simonton's article on the Rockefeller/Heritage Connection, she states, "The top men of the Heritage Foundation, first Weyrich and now Ed Feulner with the trust and cooperation of masses of sincerely committed conservatives have been in a position to further elitist Rockefeller goals. Along with radical World Government advocate, Walter Hoffman of the World Federalist Association, they participated on the 16 member U.S. Commission on Improving the Effectiveness of the United Nations. Working with the US Information Agency, Feulner also participated in facilitating the infamous 1985 US-Soviet Education Technology and Cultural Exchange Agreement. Soviet pedagogy, based on behavioral conditioning for a compliant collective labor force, is a dream come true for the dozens of multinational corporations funding all the think tanks promoting American education reform. The humanist Carnegie Foundation, a century-long collaborator with Rockefeller philanthropy, facilitated the Soviet side of this Exchange Agreement."
Heritage's communist connections, were established rapidly after the historic meeting between Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev at the Geneva Summit. Feulner was appointed by Reagan as chairman of the U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy. The commission was responsible for expediting a signed Soviet-American Educational Exchange Agreement. At the same time, note that Heritage founder, Weyrich, once served as advisor to former Russian President Boris Yeltsin.
Both Feulner and Weyrich were also involved with other powerful players and shadowy figures, some from the right and some from the left. They have been included in groups formed to reinvent the UN, supposedly to face the 21st century. It is becoming more and more evident that Weyrich and Feulner were in fact organizing a tight group that represented the merger of right and left, which we have seen over the past 65 years. Feulner carries on as Heritage president.
ONE LAST POINT ON TENNESSEE'S GOVERNOR AND AGENDA 21
Tennessee House Joint Resolution 587 denounced "the destructive and insidious nature of UN Agenda 21." It was passed by Republican legislators over Democratic complaints that it buys into a conspiracy theory. The Resolution was approved, 72-23 in the House and by a 19-11 vote in the Senate. This is a non-binding position statement by the General Assembly, not a law that is implemented. Our Republican Governor, Bill Haslam, refused to sign the Resolution. It is the first Resolution he has refused to sign since he took office in 2010.
When Haslam was Mayor of the City of Knoxville, he hired his former opponent, who lost by only a few points, environmental extremist, Madeline Rogero, as Director of Community Development. While in this position, she applied for the Smart Growth federal grant from Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The grant gave the City of Knoxville $4.3 million and another $2.5 million came from local non-profits. The City of Knoxville is now a member of ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). The ICLEI name has been changed to Local Governments for Sustainability. We are now fighting "Smart Growth," thanks to our Governor and the now new Mayor of the City of Knoxville, Madeline Rogero.
In East Tennessee the five county local "Regional" SMART GROWTH program is called Plan East Tennessee, (Regional Plan for Livable Communities), a plan which will eliminate private property rights in five counties. (REGIONAL MEANS COMMUNIST)
Series II of Plan ET held a week of six forums in every one of the five "regional" counties (Blount, Knox,(2) Anderson, Loudon and Union) asking for "community input." Yet, Plan ET's definition of "community input" seems to be neutralization of any expressed opposition to their plans of eliminating private property ownership under the guise of Smart Growth. Their "community consensus" is scripted for their pre-determined outcome via their use of the evil Rand Corporation's mind-control Delphi Technique. RAND developed the Delphi method in the 1950s for the U.S. Department of Defense. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.
Wallace, Roberts, and Todd (WRT) architectural firm, headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is the Plan ET partner chosen to head the forums. They are paid $1.7 million to accomplish the pre-determined outcome of these forums through facilitation of the Delphi Technique. WRT was established in 1963 by David Wallace and they are expert "regional planners" [Link] with the firm's origins rooted in "sustainability." The American Planning Association (APA) has continually recognized this firm and their principal leaders for their contributions to sustainability and Smart Growth. The APA even has a "Policy Guide on Smart Growth."
Governor Haslam helped spur residential and retail growth in the downtown area, mainly by offering developers tax subsidies. He helped implement a master plan for the development of the South Knoxville riverfront, which was given an Outstanding Planning Award by the Tennessee Chapter of the American Planning Association. So he is quite familiar with the American Planning Association.
Another top WRT principal is David Rouse. His bio states, "David has a special interest in planning and design for sustainability, community engagement in the planning process, and capacity-building for implementation." (Capacity building is the stack-em and pack-em mega multi-family high rises built in the urban landscape after you've been moved off your suburban or rural property.)
From WRT's website, "Principal David Rouse is one of 11 members of the American Planning Association's Sustaining Places Task Force, established earlier this year to address the use of the comprehensive plan as the leading policy document and tool to help communities of all sizes achieve sustainability. The Task Force is part of the Sustaining Places Initiative, announced in March 2010 by APA President Bruce Knight and Chief Executive Officer Paul Farmer at the United Nation's Fifth World Urban Forum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Sustaining Places is a multi-year, multi-faceted program to define the role of planning in addressing all human settlement issues relating to sustainability."
David Rouse, UN Smart Growth architect of Wallace, Roberts and Todd stated in the Chattanooga Times Free Press newspaper last fall that he is "committed to an open process, and that property rights won't be impacted without the public's consent." (Note: He said "without the public's consent, not the property owner's.)
Here's the real rub with this whole "community input" nonsense this UN Agenda 21 Smart Growth bunch is pulling. At the majority of meetings, there were18 to 23 Plan ET members present who are Delphi facilitators, along with WRT and Metropolitan Planning Commission (unelected) staff. Then there were 20 to 25 invitees from local governments, including local government Planning Committees, Community Development , Oak Ridge National Labs, University of Tennessee, etc. All of these invitees are employed by government and have a vested interest in this Plan ET coming to full fruition.
I have attended nearly all of the Plan ET forums, and at every table, the "shills" who were invited answered all the questions with the pre-determined and ordained outcomes the Smart Growth facilitators desired. Then there are another 18 to 25 people who know what Agenda 21 really is all about. The majority of meetings have approximately 40 to 45 people, not counting the facilitators.
If those of us against UN Agenda 21 did not attend, the only people giving "community input" would be the invited government shills who have a vested interest in Smart Growth and should not be voting at these Delphi meetings as it is a conflict of interest! At one meeting, one of the invitees admitted she was a paid participant. By the way, these attendance numbers were also given by the Plan ET staff present at all the forums.
The total number of attendees in the 6 forums of Series Two, were 235 people. Of those 235 people, almost 100 of them were patriotic Americans who are fighting Smart Growth and Agenda 21. This means that 135 invited government employees were deciding the future property rights of the 800,000 people in the five county area of Plan ET. Not a very balanced community input now, is it?

This is what our Governor brought to Knoxville when he was our Mayor. He is now working to change TN law regarding water rights. All the water in TN belongs to the citizens, the aquifers, rivers, lakes, wetlands, etc. Our governor wants the state to control the water and the water to belong only to the state, not the citizens. If we lose this battle, the loss of our private property rights can be laid at the feet of our Republican "Conservative Christian" Governor.
In our recent primary election, held on August 2nd, 2012, two local knowledgeable candidates lost to candidates apparently funded and obviously backed by the Governor of Tennessee to continue to carry out his education agenda as well as his United Nations Agenda 21 Smart Growth/Sustainability goals. Despite Tennessee being the very buckle of the Bible Belt, the state is not the conservative bastion of leaders one would expect. In fact, it is just the opposite. We are loaded with neo-con Trotskyite traitors who are destroying our children and our freedoms, and the people continue to sleep.
