Mob Rule Reigns: Dallas Honors Communists, Dumps Confederates
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   September 8, 2017

Mob rule has taken over Dallas City Hall.

The fix was already in even before the Dallas City Council heard our public testimony on September 6.  Prior to the meeting, cranes had been dispatched to the statute to remove the statute of Robert E. Lee.  In a blatant overreach of authority, the City Council decided 13-1 to ignore citizens and railroad the removal of all Confederate memorabilia, even that in the Fair Park displays.  Names of buildings and streets and schools must be changed. Former Texas House Representative Will Harnett has warned this will cost many millions.  Just think of the disruption to businesses and even traffic as crews set about removing all things Confederate.   

It seems that City Hall is out of control and may even be incapable of governing Dallas. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway told radio talk show host, Mark Davis, that waiting 90 days for the Task Force report was dangerous.  His reason: As long as the statute stands, Dallas police are in danger. Quick removal will assuage future rioting.  

Is Caraway mentally capable of governing Dallas?  Such irrational comments lead us to wonder.

Of course, getting rid of Confederate memorabilia is not the real issue here.  The real issue is that, since the 1930s, neo-Marxists have been on a “long march through the institutions” in America to rewrite our history and destroy our Republic.  They intend, IF we allow it, to destroy every last vestige of our history.

Unfortunately the lessons we as a society could learn from the War Between the States have been hijacked by northern liberals who used the issue of slavery to taint the South.  The hoodwinking of Americans as to the cause of the Civil War is one of the more egregious acts of educational sabotage ever perpetrated on our nation. Original Civil War documents indicate there were multiple political cause with one being slavery.

If we are going to destroy our history, why target only Confederate history when there are numerous monuments to communists/Marxists?  Millions have been enslaved and murdered under this type of government.  

A good place to begin is with monuments to communists/Marxists Cesar Chávez and Dr. Maya Angelou.  Throughout Texas and even in Dallas there are schools, buildings, streets, and more named after these hard left radicals.

Since noises are being made to erect a statute of Angelou in place of the Lee statute, I thought it appropriate in my testimony before the City Council on Wednesday to point out that we must continue our purge of the memory of slavery and violence by removing all references to Chávez and Angelou.  Surely Dallas doesn’t want to replace Lee with a communist. Mayor Rawlings seemed quite angry with my comment as he scowled and tapped his foot.

Let’s check the facts on Chávez and Angelou.

 

Blame Public Schools For Those Crazed Lefties

Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.     August 27, 2017   World Net Daily

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.  Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” ― George Orwell, 1984

The progressive socialist left wants to erase all history relating to the Civil War and the Confederacy.  They absolutely do not want America to know it was Southern Democrats who supported slavery and were behind Jim Crow, the KuKluxKlan, literacy tests and poll taxes. They do not want America to know they opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments.

And they are getting plenty of help from liberal university presidents and faculty, city government, and public education boards of education.  Falling all over themselves, they waste time and taxpayer money yanking down statutes of Confederate generals that have been in place for decades – all because they don’t want to offend those leftist socialists.  They need to remember who employs them.

The University of Texas president Gregory Fenves’ has caved to socialist hysteria, quietly removing four Confederate statutes early Monday morning to avoid protests.  His lame excuse –  “Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism.”  Those monuments would not be symbols of neo-Nazism if cowardly “leaders” did not fear being called rascist by enemies of America, including the Workers World Party, Industrial Workers of the World, Democratic Socialists of America, and the Antifa gang.

In Dallas, the liberal City Council is scrambling to appease the radical left, vowing to remove statutes from Lee Park in pricey Turtle Creek.  Despite their already bloated budget, they are willing to add millions to get rid of the “offending” statutes.  They are giving no thought to how much they are offending thousands of constituents.

Scott Carlson of Briggs Freeman Sotheby, worrying about how the statutes affect the price of Turtle Creek real estate, ventured that Dallas should keep the horse and remove the statue of Lee, while adding a statute of Dr. Maya Angelou.

Now that shouldn’t offend the left. This madam/actress/communist/all around phony as described by Daniel J. Flynn in Spectator was hard left, embracing Fidel Castro, Malcolm X and Bill Clinton.  Dallas has stupidly named schools after this Communist madam who did not have a college degree or students – a doctor without a doctorate and a teacher without students.

The Six Flags Over Texas Park, famous for its flags of the six nations that have governed what is now the Lone Star State -- France, Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the United States of America, and the Confederate States of America – has timidly agreed to haul down the Confederate flag.  Now only Old Glory is flying and name change will likely be just a few days away.   

Dallas Independent School board president Dan Micciche wrote that the board will address renaming schools, "I don't have an answer for a young African American student who asks, 'Why is this school named after someone who fought to keep my ancestors enslaved?' I don't have an answer for that."

Since public schools across the nation, including those in the Dallas ISD, have revised history so that few really know the truth about the Civil War, this is not a surprising answer.

Check out any public school textbooks for lessons on the Civil War.  Entire chapters are devoted to slavery and the Civil War, yet little is written about the important role of the protective tariffs in pre-Civil War days. Little is written about the cultural differences between the North and South, or the differences in philosophies over centralization versus states’ rights, Christianity versus Secular Humanism, or the economic issues between the North and South.  The impression is that all Southerners were fighting to protect slavery, yet there is almost no mention that most Southerners did not even own slaves or that free blacks also owned black slaves.

A central fact obscured is that the North was deeply implicated in slavery and slave trade right up to the war.

Democrats hypocritically ignore that West Virginia Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was a member and local leader of the KKK.  Students have no idea about the shift made by blacks in political parties or why.  They don’t know and/or and refuse to believe that Martin Luther King was a Republican.

We can thank government schools for trashing Classical teaching to implement John Dewey’s progressivism that uses schools to drive political and social change.  Dewey was an avowed socialist and secular humanist. Thanks also go to the Carnegie Corporation for funding the study that recommended changing America from a free enterprise economic system to a collective economy through indoctrination in social sciences courses.  Today 49 percent of 18-29 year-olds favor socialism to capitalism.  

Pubic schools are being used to foster racial hatred and violence to achieve the left’s overthrow of America.

The only way to stop this is to scrap public schools that are indoctrination centers for teaching hatred of America and our Christian faith.  It’s time to send our education dollars to schools that will teach kids to read, write, and cipher along with appreciating the freedom that millions living under dictators would give their lives to have.

Democrats may just find that statute-toppling and name changing to decimate America’s history may be their undoing.   There is a coming backlash by those whites who are tired of being ridiculed, scorned, belittled and called racists, deplorables, and rednecks by the open-minded Progressives.

Social Media: A Dictator’s Paradise

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. August 24, 2017 Daily Caller

One of the greatest challenges for dictators has been obtaining detailed personal information about residents so they can be tracked anywhere, any time. This is especially daunting for large countries such as China and the former Soviet Union. Now, with advanced technology, that totalitarian goal is possible.

Several countries, including South Africa and India, have used technology to set up biometric database systems of residents. In 2015 Pakistan followed, undertaking a massive program to create a national biometric database system tied to mobile phones. Residents were given a choice: be fingerprinted or lose their phones. The government’s public excuse was that mobile phones have been used to detonate explosive devices in Pakistan and to extort money from victims by banned militant groups. According to government officials, a national fingerprint database tied to cellphones allows the origins of crime and terrorist attacks to be traced.

However, this system works only if cellphones are used and an infrastructure exists. Many areas of Pakistan do not have cellphone infrastructure, including those along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, so residents sometimes use Afghanistan networks. Historically many Islamist militants have sought refuge in this remote territory. With outside access to cell phones, they can escape having their mobile phones and fingerprints registered in Pakistan. How then will the Pakistan government be able to trace terrorists if they are not part of the Pakistan mobile phone database?

This promise of using a national fingerprint database to keep citizens free from terrorists and criminals has taken a dangerous direction. Pakistan is bent on tamping down blasphemy. The government has been bullying Facebook and Twitter to identify users who are suspected of blasphemy against Islam. In March 2017, Daily Mail reported that Facebook had caved to government demands to block blasphemous content posted on its Pakistan website.

The Express Tribune reported in July 2017 that the Pakistan government has been pressuring Facebook to link mobile phone numbers to new accounts – a demand rejected by Facebook so far. If Facebook caves on this demand, the government will have access to all Facebook users through the national mobile phone database.

Social media has previously been used by conservative individuals in remote areas of Pakistan for private religious debates. No longer. In June 2017, a poor Shia Muslim was sentenced to death for his posts on Facebook which allegedly insulted the prophet Muhammed. The Pakistan government is censoring Facebook content, ordering Facebook to turn over information on nearly 2,500 accounts in 2016 alone. Facebook has complied with about two-thirds of the requested accounts.

The Pakistan government now has expanded the definition of blasphemy to include the State and the military.

The censoring of Facebook users is being carried out in Thailand where the royalist military government has added criticism of the royal family to the blasphemy list. Vietnam, which has one of Asia’s fastest growing economies, forces social media sites to comply with content censorship by pressuring local companies to withdraw advertising if “toxic” content is not removed from the sites.

China is in the process of creating a giant social credit database for launch in 2020. The Washington Post describes this sinister plan: “Imagine a world where an authoritarian government monitors everything you do, amasses huge amounts of data on almost every interaction you make, and awards you a single score that measures how ‘trustworthy’ you are.”

A person’s social credit score can be affected by defaulting on a loan, criticizing the ruling party, running a red light or failing to care for elderly parents. Your score determines your lifestyle – “whether you can borrow money, get your children into the best schools or travel abroad; whether you get a room in a fancy hotel, a seat in a top restaurant — or even just get a date.”

Chinese Communist leaders envision being able to “collect every scrap of information available online about China’s companies and citizens in a single place — and then assign each of them a score based on their political, commercial, social and legal ‘credit.’” 

Ignoring public outcry, the government insists the system is meant to regulate China’s market economy and curb fraud. After decades of Communist tyrannical rule, who will believe that a social credit system is anything but a Communist scheme to micromanage every citizen’s life? Now, with technological advances, they just may be able to pull it off.

In the United States, Big Government, Big Business, and Big Data are colluding to legalize a national student database. Some are openly advocating for greater surveillance and personal tracking. The bipartisan bill (S.1121 - “The College Transparency Act”) would do just that, allowing the government to monitor, track and pigeon hole Americans from the postsecondary level on through the workforce.

Already children are tracked from birth through the 12th grade. At the behest of the feds, all 50 states have set up state longitudinal data systems, despite the angry clamor of grassroots Americans. Now elites want to connect state student data with federal student data, thus completing “cradle to grave” data for the federal government.

Monied interests want to go still further and connect all federal data including education, IRS, income, taxes, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Just as in Pakistan and China, U.S. government bureaucrats argue their actions are for the public good – connecting all federal data will bring greater efficiency. When has the government ever been efficient at anything? If Americans fail to stop these bureaucrats before they go any further, a student national database and connecting all of the systems will open the floodgate for total government control in the once “land of the free.”

Education Bureaucrats Fake Academic Achievement Results

By Carole Hornsby Haynes August 18, 2017    with Commentary by Bill Ames

Last year I wrote an article about how the education bureaucrats are shielding the truth from the American parents: children in government schools are skidding downhill in academic achievement. The national math scores of fourth and eight graders have dropped for the first time since the National Assessment of Educational Progress was administered in the early 1990s. Senior math scores declined also.

Why Facebook Makes You Sad and Zuckerberg Glad

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. July 31, 2017 Published by World Net Daily

Thousands of studies have reported that most humans thrive when they have positive relationships with other humans. However, these studies have been done with face-to-face social relationships. Now an important study about online relationships has been reported in the Harvard Business Review, “Association of Facebook Use With Compromised Well-Being: A Longitudinal Study.” The study finds the use of Facebook is negatively associated with overall well-being, especially in mental health.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong With A Federal Apprenticeship Program?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. July 19, 2017 Published by Daily Caller

Promising that apprenticeships are going to be a “major factor in our country,” President Trump is leading the charge to reform the failed federally funded job-training and workforce development programs.

The recently passed H.R. 2353 reduces the role of the federal government in workforce programs. Education and the Workforce Committee ChairmanVirginia Foxx, in her FoxNews commentary, wrote that educational institutions, private companies, and community leaders must work together to create apprenticeship programs without the federal government dictating implementation.

House Ed Committee Studies How Feds Can Avoid Being A Burden-- Really?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. July 18, 2017

Maybe the message is getting through to Republican conservatives on Capitol Hill that government pre-K programs are a failure – no matter how much liberals lie about how government early childhood programs close the gap for poor children.

How Texas Could Give Teachers A Big Raise Without Costing Taxpayers Anything  

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   July 14, 2017     Published by Dallas Morning News

On July 18th the Texas Legislature convenes for a special session to address 20 items, one of which is a $1000 pay raise for teachers.

Education spending represents a major chunk of each state’s budget, bloated with the usual unnecessary layers of government bureaucracy.  In a 2012 Congressional testimony Neal McClusky with the CATO Institute stated, “Our public schools have been on a decades-long hiring binge with ultimately no gains to show for it.”  

Government Schools Track Kids ‘Mental Health’

by Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. July 14, 2017

Government schools are conducting psychological and mental evaluations of children without parental consent or knowledge. Blame the unconstitutional Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that was passed under the Obama administration with Republican support.

Big Tech, Big Government to Create National Student Database?
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   July 7, 2017   Daily Caller

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have national healthcare and national curriculum standards.  If our Republican-led Congress has its way, we will soon have another unconstitutional national program – a federal student database.

For years those who want to establish social control have advocated for a centralized government database to track and link student data across agencies.  

Texas STAAR Is A National Star!

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  July 5, 2017    Education Views

The Texas required standardized tests -- STAAR -- are vilified by parents and teachers alike who complain teachers are forced to teach to the test, using 25 percent -- 46 days -- of precious classroom time. But there is more to the story than that.

Workforce Reform to Make Marxist Universities Obsolete?
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.      June 23, 2017  Originally published at World Net Daily

“We want to make sure that we have the workforce development programs we need to ensure these jobs are being filled by American workers.” – President Donald J. Trump

President Trump is leading the charge to reform the federally funded job-training and workforce development programs to prepare Americans for the millions of available jobs.  As with most central government projects, these programs have not been effective, wasting billions of taxpayer dollars and leaving many Americans struggling to find full-time employment.

That is changing with the new legislature being passed in D.C., designed to promote apprenticeships and effective workforce development programs.

U.S. Schools Cave to Sharia Law
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   June 18, 2017   

American schools continue to cave to Sharia demands by Muslim students.

Recently high schools in the state of New York were pressured by Muslim students to give preferential treatment for their observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Accommodations included prayer rooms, special diets, and time away from school.
