Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world.”-Vladimir Lenin

Citizens nationwide who support data privacy joined together in opposing the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (FEPA). Despite this, House Leadership caved to the wishes of Big Data and other special interests and ignored the concerns of everyday Americans. The House jammed the bill through on a voice vote, which means there is no written record of how each Congressman voted. 

Faced with claims about the bill from several conservative groups, the House Majority staff issued a two-page rebuttal prior to the vote in an effort to shut down opposition. 

House Claim: FEPA does not create a federal [centralized] data system.

Fact: FEPA is based on the recommendations of the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking (CEP) to create a “National Secure Data Service” that requires

  • each agency to create an evidence-building plan;

  • the OMB Director to unify the plans across the entire federal government;

  • the creation of a “federal data catalog” and a “national data inventory;” and

  • the recommendation by various councils about increasing the linking and sharing of data with federal agencies, states, and public and private research entities.

House Claim: FEPA does not authorize new or additional data or data analysis.

Fact: Agency heads are incentivized to expand data collection while agencies gain new sources of data through accessing data held by other agencies. Both public and private organizations can access private data. The OMB Director can add statistical agencies and units and decides whether any data will be exempt from sharing even if too private or too confidential. 

House Claim: FEPA does not overturn an existing student unit record ban, which prohibits the establishment of a database with data on all students.

Fact: FEPA does not overturn the ban -- at this point -- but its extensive data linking/sharing does create a de facto national database. Although the data will remain housed at the collecting agency, it will be shared widely with others. This poses a major security threat to student data held at the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and at the states’ longitudinal data systems (SLDS). 

House Claim: FEPA does not repeal the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA) but strengthens existing protections for data.

Fact: The new location serves no useful purpose and data protection is not strengthened.The major threat to data privacy and security still exists because of greater access and unlimited sharing. 

House Claim: FEPA does not respond to the Commission’s recommendations to repeal any ban on the collection or consolidation of data.

Fact: FEPA requires each agency to create “a list of any challenges” to accessing data, including “any statutory or other restrictions to accessing relevant data.” This mandate is based on the CEP’s recommendation that “Congress and the President should consider repealing current bans and limiting future bans on the collection and use of data for evidencebuilding.” H.R. 2434, which has already been introduced into the House, does remove the ban. 

House Claim: FEPA will make better use of existing data.

Fact: Why hasn’t the government already made use of decades of proof about the failure of Head Start, programs under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, or poverty programs? FEPA is a wolf in sheep’s clothing just as ESEA was.

The bill claims the data will be secure. Really?

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in 2015 reported that the USDE’s information systems continue to be vulnerable to serious security threats. The USDE has received an “F” on the FITARA scorecard.Of the 97,000 accounts/users with access to the massive data, only 5,000 have undergone a background check to establish security clearance.

In 2017 it was discovered that a huge FAFSA – federal student aid -- data breach had occurred on the IRS website, exposing more than 100,000 citizens to fraud based on their stolen records.

Other federal agencies have had security breaches including the Office of Personnel Management and the ObamaCare website – healthcare.gov.

Why is Big Data pushing for legislation to allow greater access to data?

The USDE is aggressively requiring more data. The Every Student Succeeds Act directs federal dollars for Pay-for-Success schemes as well as providing millions of dollars in grants to schools that shift to education models designed for data collection. 

One of the Pay-for-Success schemes attracting big money philanthropists is Social Impact Bonds. Data is king since loan repayment is based on success pre-determined by data. To offer “proof” to investors for a return on investment, tech companies pressure schools for baseline, growth, and value-added data. 

The Gates Foundation-funded Data Quality Campaign is determined to overturn the ban to overturn the ban on a national student database. They are working in tandem with corporate researchers to gain greater access to data under the guise of education research. 

The bill is now with the the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. Watch for the bill to come to the floor any time or it could be attached to other legislation.


The legislation is on a fast track so please contact your Senators and President Trump immediately.

Congress Suspends Rule:  Fast Tracks Police-State Bill

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. November 13, 2017

Congress is suspending rules to fast track a bill that allows surveillance of citizens and students. This week the House will take a voice vote on a bill that will create a massive federal data clearing house to merge information which will be shared with various agencies and researchers much like that of China.

Congress’ Latest Police-State Bill

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. November 10, 2017 World Net Daily

If the current bipartisan legislature passes, the federal government will be able to track you throughout life using education, employment, wage, and workforce data.

There has been incremental shredding of personal privacy laws to allow access to personal data from cradle to grave.

Has America Gone Mad?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. October 24, 2017 Texas Insider

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams

Our founding Judeo-Christian principles have been thrown into the trash bin by those who want to transform America. From a moral beginning, our nation has now cratered into a Satanic abyss where evil is deemed virtuous and those who dare to practice their Christian faith with its morality and traditional families are a basket of irredeemable deplorables.

Has America gone mad? Has America ceased to be good?

President Trump has announced the withdrawal of the U.S. from the United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) effective December 31, 2018.  The organization is the educational arm of the United Nations that was founded by former Soviet spy Algier Hiss.

In 1984 President Reagan withdrew the U.S. from UNESCO but in 2003 President George W. Bush reentered the nation.

Has America Ceased To Be Good?

Big Government and Elites Love Datapalooza

Students can no longer attend public schools and expect to get a broad based academic education.  Instead they are pawns of Big Government and Big Business.

For Big Government, public education is the preferred vehicle to implement a Soviet-style planned economy to replace capitalism and the fierce American individualism that we treasure.  For Big Business, American K-12 is at least a $500 billion market, according to Rupert Murdoch of News Corp.

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.

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 Ku Klux Klan, literacy tests and poll taxes. They do not want America to know they opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments.

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.

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.
