ARE YOU WONDERING WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY?

BIDEN-EO-FIAT

With nothing but a pen, President Joe Biden is slowly transforming our nation beyond that of former-President Barack Obama’s wildest Marxist dreams?

All without congressional approval. Even though the Democrats have a slim majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, the self-serving politicians are afraid to put their name on the legislation that will cripple our nation. Knowing intuitively the ultimate consequences of the voter’s ire when the results hit the voters in the face. Even the mainstream media moguls and the tech tyrants cannot hide, distort, or censor the hole in your pocket or the one in your child’s shoes.

Our nation appears to be crumbling at our feet. One major political party, the Democrat Party,  is rapidly moving away from our nation’s traditional values.

And there are no ready answers, only questions.

Why are the wealthy elites now clustering behind the progressive socialist democrats rather than support the GOP, the traditional party of social conservatism and fiscal restraint? Could it be that they are getting filthy rich on their implied government monopolies, government contracts and special tax legislation, and the forced use of their products and services necessary to live in today’s lockdown environment?

Are you wondering what will come of a post-Trump era now that the bad "orange man" appears to have been marginalized and his supporters under attack? He may be gone, but he lives on with continued insults, blame, and comparisons because the last thing they want is for the public to scrutinize their programs.

Have you considered why there is little or no interest in discovering if Joe Biden and his family profited from their connections with the Communist Chinese Party and may be compromising national security in the process? Does Biden know that re-joining the Paris Climate Accords benefits China, one of the largest owner/operators in the green power generation technologies and Rare Earth mineral space?

Why has the United States not canceled a large portion of the nation's debt owed to China for the damages caused by the Wuhan virus?

Why are there suddenly 22-million illegal aliens when politicians have been telling us there are only 11-million aliens in the United States year after year?

What we are seeing...

It appears that the Democrats are openly admiring Communist China, not for its goal of world domination, but its authoritarian ability to control their people and their economy to push forward with their progressive agenda.

American elites, having replaced education with indoctrination, appear to be using technology to strengthen their influence and control over populations with targeted propaganda and censorship and capture the economy through the control of energy. Hence their concentration on sustainable development and global warming. You might want to ask Texans how to create an artificial sun or de-ice a wind turbine.

It appears that the elites are going beyond traditional ideologies, being neither Democrats nor Republicans, but exploiters of any system or methodology that will allow them to improve their position in a global hierarchy and capture a meaningful portion of the wealth being redistributed to gain political power.

Bottom line...

It is intuitively obvious that our politicians manipulate and exploit the Wuhan virus for political power and financial gain. We have good cause to be suspicious of the near limitless raid on our treasury, printing dollars with impunity, borrowing money from the Communist Chinese, shutdowns, travel restrictions, and mask mandates.

In the final analysis, the less we think like traditional Americans and more like identity-based classes, the more dangerous we become to ourselves, our Constitution, and our Country.

America an exceptional and unique nation, a nation deliberately founded on the idea of inalienable rights, a limited government, and checks and balances to prevent devolving into a mobocracy leading to a failed state. A good nation, not perfect, but improving. Populated by mostly good people who want to live well and be productive -- and pass that heritage on to the next generation.

Unfortunately, that heritage is gravely in doubt. And we are so screwed.

PROGRESSIVES SKEWERED BY PARODY SITE THE BABAYLON BEE

Even in death, Rush Limbaugh is still illustrating the hypocrisy of the progressive socialist democrats…

Imagine, if you will, a satire site, The Babylon Bee, famous for its parodies of news articles and headlines of the day – actually printing an absolutely “true” headline highlighting the hypocrisy of the Democrats.

bb-hdr

Party Of Love And Progress Rejoices Over Death Of Political Opponent

 

rush-bb

 

Within minutes of the news of Rush Limbaugh's death, Democrats, well known as the party of love, empathy, and progress, began to rejoice over the death of their political opponent.

The party that is known for standing against hate in all its forms, the party that has chanted "Love Trumps Hate!" for the last four years, the party that calls the other side hateful bigots who will be on the wrong side of history for their opposition to love and tolerance, all cheered loudly and danced on Limbaugh's grave on social media for much of the day Wednesday.

"Listen, hate has no home here -- wait, Limbaugh's dead? Wooohooooo!!!" shouted one progressive podcaster. "Today should be a national holiday!" She then jumped on Twitter and garnered thousands of likes and retweets for tweeting horrible things about a man she disagreed with.

Unfortunately for progressives everywhere, Limbaugh has announced he will continue broadcasting from the afterlife. <Source>

[OCS: Rush may not be broadcasting directly, but his love of America, common-sense analysis, and using humor to illustrate the hate and hypocrisy of the progressives will live on forever. Regardless of how he was labeled, he was the American success story – failing until he massively succeeded. Living the life he designed despite physical handicaps that would have destroyed a lesser man.] 

Bottom line…

Meanwhile, you might want to watch one of Rush’s speeches that define conservatism and demonstrates his ability to engage an audience – educating and entertaining, without a teleprompter and while profoundly deaf. 

If the video is missing, it can be found on YouTube or CSPAN.

Tomorrow, we will return to the progressive socialist democrats' craziness and their continuing destruction of America, our Constitution, and the American way of life.

We are so screwed – and deeply sad at the passing of Rush.

RUSH LIMBAUGH MAKES HIS LAST POINT...

If there is any point to be made on the passing of Rush Limbaugh, it is to highlight the venomous hatred of the progressive socialist democrats toward America and all Americans…

huffpo

On a day when the passing of an American icon, a broadcaster of unparalleled ability and patriotism, one might expect accolades for a lifetime of achievement, and if not accolades, respectful silence.

To all those haters, you have said more about yourself and your worldview than you have about Rush.

Bottom line…

“Well, my friends, that’s it. Yet another excursion into broadcast excellence in the can. Enjoyed being with you today, always do. And look forward to the next time. Thanks to Mark Steyn who has been in standby mode all day. Wasn’t sure I was going to be able to go today and then each hour I had to assess. But we made it. Thank you, Mr. Steyn. See you all next time.” [The Rush Limbaugh Show February 2, 2021]

America's greatest spokesperson is gone and it is now up to us to carry on to fight for liberty.

WHAT HAPPENED TO FREEDOM-LOVING TEXAS?

siren

Sje-texasIt is bad enough that the progressive socialist democrats are releasing criminals into our communities and restricting or disarming law-abiding citizens with nonsensical gun control laws…

Now comes Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) with House Resolution H.R. 127, the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act, which “publicly” identifies citizens who own weapons and tells where they are stored. A government benefit for criminals, crazies, and terrorists. The more weapons a collector might possess, the bigger threat to the owner’s life and property.

The bill, introduced in the House of Representatives on January 4, 2021, the second day of the 117th Congress, and referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, chaired by Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), with some of the most radical progressive socialists in the Democrat Party: Zoe Lofgren D-CA, Sheila Jackson Lee D-TX, Steve Cohen D-TN, Hank Johnson D-GA, Ted Deutch D-FL, Karen Bass D-CA, Hakeem Jeffries D-NY, David Cicilline D-RI, Eric Swalwell D-CA, Ted Lieu D-CA, Jamie Raskin D-MD, Pramila Jayapal D-WA, Val Demings D-FL, Lou Correa D-CA, Mary Gay Scanlon D-PA, Sylvia Garcia D-TX, Joe Neguse D-CO, Lucy McBath D-GA, Greg Stanton D-AZ, Madeleine Dean D-PA, Veronica Escobar D-TX, Mondaire Jones D-NY, Deborah K. Ross D-NC, and Cori Bush D-MO.

(Excerpt) from H.R.127 — 117th Congress (2021-2022)

To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.


IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 4, 2021

Ms. Jackson Lee introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


A BILL

To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the “Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act”.

SEC. 2. LICENSING OF FIREARM AND AMMUNITION POSSESSION; REGISTRATION OF FIREARMS.

(a) Firearm Licensing And Registration System.—

(1) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

Ҥ 932. Licensing of firearm and ammunition possession; registration of firearms

“(a) In General.—The Attorney General, through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, shall establish a system for licensing the possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States, and for the registration with the Bureau of each firearm present in the United States.

“(b) Firearm Registration System.—

“(1) REQUIRED INFORMATION.—Under the firearm registration system, the owner of a firearm shall transmit to the Bureau—

“(A) the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, the identity of the owner of the firearm, the date the firearm was acquired by the owner, and where the firearm is or will be stored; and

“(B) a notice specifying the identity of any person to whom, and any period of time during which, the firearm will be loaned to the person.

“(2) DEADLINE FOR SUPPLYING INFORMATION.—The transmission required by paragraph (1) shall be made—

“(A) in the case of a firearm acquired before the effective date of this section, within 3 months after the effective date of this section; or

“(B) in the case of a firearm acquired on or after the effective date, on the date the owner acquires the firearm.

“(3) DATABASE.—

“(A) IN GENERAL.—The Attorney General shall establish and maintain a database of all firearms registered pursuant to this subsection.

“(B) ACCESS.—The Attorney General shall make the contents of the database accessible to all members of the public, all Federal, State, and local law enforcement authorities, all branches of the United States Armed Forces, and all State and local governments, as defined by the Bureau. <Source>

The bill would require gun owners to pay $800 per year for firearms insurance and ban ammunition that is .50 caliber or greater. It also establishes a minimum gun ownership age of 21 and requires a psychological evaluation and completion of a government training course before purchasing a firearm. Even antique firearms displayed in a home would have to be registered.

Those who run afoul of the regulations could face prison time and fines of $50,000 to $150,000.

Not only would this criminalize a large number of law-abiding citizens, but it would also create a national registry of gun-owners, making them vulnerable to government tyranny and the compromise of the Constitution’s Second Amendment, and would serve as a precursor to gun confiscation and mandatory government buybacks.

One can also foresee a day when the use of quasi-Democrat shock-troops such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter might cause enough death and destruction so that law-abiding citizens will voluntarily abandon their weapons to be removed from the list.

Many a truth is spoken in jest…

Texas

Elon Musk’s relocation follows 687,000 other Californians who’ve moved to Texas in last decade

The billionaire tech mogul joins more than 687,000 Californians who’ve made the move to the Lone Star State over the last decade, according to an analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data from 2010-19.

Californians made up roughly 13% of the entire population that has migrated to Texas since 2010, more than any other single state.

Last year, 82,235 Californians moved to Texas, down just slightly from the 10-year peak in 2018 of 86,164.

The bad news is that Californians, Oregonians, and Washingtonians bring their liberalism AND FEAR OF FIREARMS with them!

Bottom line…

Depending on what part of Texas -- we are seeing, the best and the worst of being a Texan and an American citizen.

Sheila Jackson Lee should be primaried by the very people she is HURTING and denying a right to self-defense in rural Texas where wait times for police will get you seriously DEAD!

We are so screwed.

WE ARE SCREWED: GOP AT WAR WITH ITSELF

elephantfight2

With the nation facing a major political crisis and the feckless GOP seemingly in disarray, it is time to firm-up the organizational chart and determine the leadership, the platform, and the messaging – and then hit it hard to prepare for the 2022 congressional election cycle.

There are more than a few significant problems. One, there is an open battle between the Establishment (McConnell, Romney, Rove, Bushies) and those that are more conservative (Cruz, Rand, Cotton). Two, the media wants to deflect from their past corruption and ongoing social justice initiatives that are crippling the country, so they attack the GOP. Three, the mainstream media needs the sensationalism of Trump to gain and maintain a declining audience. And four, the tech tyrants are continuing their censorship of the important issues of the day, including election integrity, political corruption, the embedded deep state, Biden’s performance, immigration, the pandemic, the assault on energy, and out-of-control spending, which amounts to fortifying progressive socialist democrat causes and organizations.

Trump?

Pros…

Name recognition

Significant and loyal following

America First Mantra

Significant accomplishments while under 24/7/365 attack

Democrat destruction of American institutions

Democrat destruction of beneficial Trump policies and replacement with social justice and radical socialist policies

Democrat destruction of our economy and unique American culture

Democrat pandering to our enemies

Democrat record of corruption bordering on treason

Cons…

Lack of focus and discipline

Unwilling to take advice

Undue influence of family members

History of dodgy associates

Vetting deficiencies and laziness in allowing Cintonistas and Obamacons to retain their positions

Unwillingness of top professionals to associate with Trump

Demeanor and behavioral issues

Targeted by the establishment wing of the GOP

Targeted by the media moguls

Targeted by the technology tyrants

Open legal cases

Inability to impose discipline on party members

Open fight with GOP House (Kevin McCarthy, R-CA) and Senate (Mitch McConnell, R-KY) leadership

Where do we go from here?

Who will lead the party? McConnell is for Mitch McConnell and the establishment, America be damned. Rand Paul is a fringe player. Ted Cruz is smart but hated. Marco Rubio is an establishment Bushie, Lindsey Graham can’t be trusted, Tom Cotton and Ron DeSantis are possibles.

What are our issues? We ceded the issue of fiscal responsibility. We lost the wealthy and corporate players to the democrats. The unions are unhappy but still Democratic supporters.

We have few communications options.

We have little legislative leverage.

We have second rate lawyers to pursue coordinated court actions.

Mitch McConnell is the enemy of conservatives...

McConnell Vows to Focus On‘Electability’ for 2022 Races

Now, with Republicans currently holding 50 Senate seats, making Vice President Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote, McConnell is eyeing the 2022 midterms in order to take back the chamber from Democrats.

Members of Trump’s family and staunch supporters could potentially enter key2022 Senate races, including Lara Trump in North Carolina, Ivanka Trump in Florida, and Arizona GOP chairwoman Kelli Ward in her home state. Trump has also
threatened to back a primary challenger to Senator John Thune of South Dakota.

McConnell told Politico that he will support candidates based on their ability to win elections. “My goal is, in every way possible, to have nominees representing the Republican Party who can win in November [2022],” McConnell told Politico. “Some of them may be people the former president likes. Some of them may not be. The only thing I care about is electability.” McConnell added, “I’m not predicting the president would support people who couldn’t win. But I do think electability — not who supports who — is the critical point.” <Source>

It’s all about McConnell’s leadership position. He is willing to support progressive socialist democrats who want to cut the Democrat primary line, win as Republicans, and revert to their liberal roots. The sad thing is that, unlike the Democrats, the GOP leadership does have the cojones to beat them back in line or, like McConnell, Lindsey Graham or the late John McCain actually agree with the liberals. Knowing they can trade their support for some carve-out or pork that they can bring to their district to purchase local votes.

What good is holding a Senate majority that provides the key votes for the opposition? Specifically, Republican Senators Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania – all voting to convict Trump on a bogus impeachment charge with falsified evidence.

Bottom line…

Biden-hat

Most likely, Trump will demand a leadership role, and the trick will be to use his assets while avoiding the craziness. The idea of any Trump family member, all who lack real political experience, some who are stupid, crazymakers, and leakers, should be as abhorrent as choosing another reality star. We lucked-out with Trump who instinctively did the right thing. Next time, we may not be so lucky. 

DO NOT GIVE ONE PENNY TO McCONNELL'S NATIONAL REPUBLICAN SENATORIAL COMMITTEE. The two lame bozos in Georgia were McConnell's picks -- and they lost to two radical Marxists, one a rabid open anti-White, anti-America, anti-Semite. Can you name the number two and number three people in the GOP leadership.  

We are screwed.

PARLER RETURNS: SCREW JACK DORSEY'S CENSORED TWITTERVERSE

tweet

After the heroic trials and tribulations inflicted on Parler by a loose conspiracy of tech tyrants, Parler has returned to provide a platform for those who value our Constitution and free speech – with little moderation and no political censorship. Hopefully, this will signal the decline of Jack Dorsey’s Twitter.

With Over 20 Million Users, World’s #1 Free Speech Social Media Community Returns with Platform Designed on Sustainable, Independent Technology and Guided by New Leadership

(Henderson, NV—February 15, 2021) Parler, the world’s #1 free speech social media platform with over 20 million users, is announcing its official relaunch today, built on sustainable, independent technology and not reliant on so-called “Big Tech” for its operations. Parler’s relaunch—open to Americans of all viewpoints—is available immediately.

“Parler was built to offer a social media platform that protects free speech and values privacy and civil discourse. When Parler was taken offline in January by those who desire to silence tens of millions of Americans, our team came together, determined to keep our promise to our highly engaged community that we would return stronger than ever. We’re thrilled to welcome everyone back,” said Mark Meckler, Interim CEO at Parler. “Parler is being run by an experienced team and is here to stay. We will thrive as the premier social media platform dedicated to free speech, privacy and civil dialogue.”

Parler Facts

Parler was first launched in August of 2018 and was taken offline by AWS on Jan. 10, 2021. Parler relaunched on Feb. 15, 2021.

Parler’s new platform is built on robust, sustainable, independent technology.
Parler’s launch is intended to bring it back online for its current users only in the first week, with new users being able to sign up starting the following week.

Parler’s Executive Committee is conducting a thorough search for a permanent CEO to lead Parler as it continues to grow and expand its reach and impact.  Mark Meckler is the interim CEO of Parler and Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer of Parler.

About Interim CEO Mark Meckler

Mark Meckler is an attorney, entrepreneur, and free speech advocate. He has expertise in launching, growing and developing effective business and technology models for two of the largest grassroots organizations in modern American history, Tea Party Patriots and Convention of States. He was appointed interim CEO to help guide Parler through its relaunch and search for a new, permanent CEO.

Bottom line…

With the progressive socialist democrats, our Constitution means nothing unless it can be exploited to grant them unprecedented powers never contemplated by the Founding Fathers. Free speech is not so free in Bidenland.

We are so screwed.

HOW EVIL IS JOE BIDEN AND THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS?

There comes a time when you know it is not stupidity or incompetence – but pure evil…

OCS-QUOTE--biden gun controlHave we forgotten that it was the progressive socialist democrats who ordered the police to “stand down” while mobs attacked law-abiding citizens, destroyed public and private property, and up-ended the lives of the community residents they swore to serve and protect?

Even in Washington, D.C., the politicians knew there was a plot to attack the capitol complex and deliberately restricted the use of police and the National Guard to create a politically-exploitable incident.

INSURRECTIONAre we going to let a bunch of elite politicians who are protected by privilege or position put the rest of us in danger from criminals, crazies, and terrorists? Are we going to let them perform and assisted suicide in America by a one-sided legislative process?

Uncle-sam-gun-head-blue-borderOnce they grab your guns, you will never get them back.

Bottom line…

Biden-gun

There are hundreds of millions of guns in America and comparatively little gun violence outside of the inner cities governed by progressive socialist democrats and featuring some of the most restrictive gun controls in the land.

Why are we releasing hardened criminals into the community and simultaneously defunding the police and relaxing the prosecution of criminals?

Never forget the reality, most police calls are responses to crime AFTER it has occurred -- with few instances where the police actually intercede or stop crime from happening.

The Second Amendment was designed to protect your First Amendment rights, as well as others,  which are under attack by the progressive socialist democrats as we write this.

Are we to live as free Americans, standing on our own two feet, or dropping to our knees to beg the criminals, crazies, and terrorists not to maim or murder us or our families?

TRUMP IMPEACHMENT STATEMENT: HOPE FOR A BRIGHTER TOMORROW

From Trump’s lips to God’s ear…

ps-1

Donald J. Trump’s Statement on Impeachment Trial Acquittal

I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.

My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.

Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.

It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.

This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.

I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and challenging times.

Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!

We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.

Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God, and it’s our responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance for our children and for generations of Americans to come.

May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.'

Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States

May this be the beginning of the end for un-American progressive socialist democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Mitt Romney, and their fellow travelers who hate America.

PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS: 2 + 2 = WHATEVER A BLACK PERSON SAYS IT IS

In my junior high school physics class, I was taught that physics was the rational study of the universe and our environment, and mathematics was the language that allowed us to analyze and describe our findings to others that transcended different languages and cultures. We reviewed the history of science from the ancients through the modern period – noting significant works performed in different countries and published in other languages. There was no mention of race and no regard for the nationality of the scientist.

Fast forward to today when we see science perverted and polluted by politics, where the politicians create and fund the “fashionable” pseudo-science of the day to support their narrative and political agenda. The replication, validation, and falsification studies are marginally funded, and their project’s principal investigators are shunned.

Now we are finding the progressive socialist democrats are worried that academic achievement, primarily scientific, mathematical, and engineering talent, appears to be distributed unequally among the races. Therefore in the name of equity, we must employ the standard progressive solutions to “the problem.” Ignoring, of course,  it is human nature that produces its own distributions, unequal as they seem. Therefore, in pandering to some class of perceived victimhood, we need to redefine physical and scientific realities, allocate real or imagined scarce resources to politically-chosen factions, and disadvantage the abled in favor of the less-abled.

An abhorrent example of the academic “elite” trying to perfect the non-perfectible…

5 Strides on the Path to Math Equity.

Stride 1-- Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction
Exercises for educators to reflect on their own biases to transform their instructional practice

This tool provides teachers an opportunity to examine their actions, beliefs, and values around teaching mathematics. The framework for deconstructing racism in mathematics offers essential characteristics of antiracist math educators and critical approaches to dismantling white supremacy in math classrooms by visibilizing the toxic characteristics of white supremacy culture (Jones and Okun 2001; dismantling Racism 2016) with respect to math. Building on the framework, teachers engage with critical praxis in order to shift their instructional beliefs and practices towards antiracist math education. By centering antiracism, we model how to be antiracist math educators with accountability.

Stride 2 -- Fostering Deep Understanding
Methods for deepening content understanding and relevance through crafted math discussions

The purpose of this tool is to highlight the diversity of student thinking, misconceptions, alternate solutions, and connections so any student, regardless of level, can contribute in meaningful discussion and gain agency and deep conceptual understanding.

Teachers also build pedagogical content knowledge, cultivate the flexibility to work with diverse students, and practice continuous improvement.
This tool is designed for middle school math teachers, but can be adapted for any grade level. It is used for planning the lesson, data collection during the lesson, as well as reflection after the lesson and for future planning. It is a cyclical, living practice of continuous improvement.

Stride 3 -- Creating Conditions to Thrive
Environments and practices that support students’ social, emotional and academic development

The purpose of this tool is to give teachers the resources they need to meaningfully incorporate the Aspen Institute National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development (SEAD) themes—Agency, Belonging, Discourse, and Identity—into the teaching of priority standards at grades 6-8 . Math teachers are most familiar with the math standards themselves; they are somewhat familiar with the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMPs), but SEAD may be new. To strengthen social emotional classroom instruction that prioritizes SEAD themes, rather than adding “another thing to do,” a research-based resource has been developed using the lens of equity that connects SEAD themes, SMPs, and proposed student and teacher actions. It will also provide many students better access to high-quality math instruction within the standards.

Stride 4 -- Connecting Critical Intersections
The interconnectedness of English language learning and the development of mathematical thinking

This tool was created to address the need for English learner (EL) supports in enhancing English proficiency, including language scaffolding, student talk, and clarifying their understanding of mathematical concepts. This tool seeks to assist teachers with classroom actionables in the form of scaffolding and supports that model equitable instructional practices for ELs, and foster rigor to develop language and mathematical conceptual understanding. It specifically addresses considerations around educator biases and beliefs and the diversity that exist among ELs. These issues are key to their success in both developing academic English proficiency and deepening their understanding of the mathematical concepts that were not addressed adequately in prior learning experiences.

Stride 5 -- Sustaining Equitable Practice 
Coaching structures that support math educators’ in their ongoing centering of equity principles

This tool is a framework designed to support instructional coaches, administrators, or lead teachers who are seeking guidance on an approach to coaching that addresses equity issues in the math classroom. It focuses on developing cultural competence, emotional intelligence of both teachers and students, and the knowledge and skill-building of teaching. This guide and its categories are inspired by Zaretta Hammond’s book Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain, as well as Elena Aguilar’s article “Mind the Gap.” By interweaving these two frameworks, and directing coaches to the resources that support the intersections of these ideas, we offer multiple pathways so that educators can embrace math equity professional coaching in a way that best meets their needs, in alignment to the appropriate area for teacher development and/or department or school-wide goals.

This toolkit was developed by a team of teachers, instructional coaches, researchers, professional development providers, and curriculum writers with expertise in mathematics education, English language development, and culturally responsive pedagogy.

Remember, we are dealing with the mathematics used in grades six through eight and children being turned into functional illiterates with a consciousness of victimhood and love of socialism.

Most of these students, depending on the school, cannot even pass standardized tests – even those dumbed down to hide the incompetence and ineptitude of instructors and administrators. The very people who need the union to protect them against competency testing in both teaching ability and subject-matter knowledge. To protect them from the forced competition of the charter schools and, heaven forbid, a situation where the funding money follows the student and does not automatically flow to the local public schools.

A few realities…

(1)  Not everybody possesses the ability or desire to learn mathematics beyond the introductory basics of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, primarily when it is repeatedly characterized as being impossibly difficult by those who lack this ability.

(2)  Mathematics demands sequential instruction that does not permit absences in the instructional sequence. Miss one instructional session on a critical topic, and you may never be able to comprehend what follows. Teachers are reluctant to downgrade students and slow their progress until they understand the subject matter or decide to shift their interests elsewhere.

(3)  Mathematics requires context. I learned more about applied advanced mathematics in Mr. Paden’s electric shop class than in my mathematics classes. Math pervaded my drafting class, my woodshop class, my metal shop class, and my other electives. We were motivated to action by practical examples and projects that could relate math to actual outcomes. Even in my academic track, I had worthwhile shop class electives that taught life skills that have lasted to this day. We learned how to use tools, fix broken “stuff” or make our “own” stuff. It was interesting and fun.

(3)  There is nothing in mathematics that is racist, deals with white supremacy, or any political constructs.

And yet we find socialist class warfare bullpucky being interjected into mathematics…

[OCS: In my opinion, Ibram X. Kendi is a race-baiter, grifter, and the modern equivalent of a Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. His binary choice of racist or antiracist is bullpucky because both are activist positions, ignoring a more rational and satisfying race-neutral position. In practice, the labels serve to denote that anyone that does follow the orthodoxy must be a racist – which is bullpucky.]

Here are some excerpts…

2. Eradicating mathematics as a gatekeeper

We have to break from the notion that learning mathematics must be a linear and procedural endeavor mastered through rote practice and memorization. Instead, we must recognize and emphasize that interconnected concepts lead to stronger foundations in mathematics and stronger personal and mathematical identities.

[OCS: Most of today’s children cannot function without a calculator – which is now allowed to be used during tests. Tried and true teaching methods have given way to “concept” teaching, which is ill-remembered and unhelpful in the real world.]

3. Engaging the sociopolitical turn of mathematics education

Instead of shying away from the political nature of mathematics and mathematics education, we instead assert a need to understand their dynamic, political, historical, relational, and cultural interplay (Gutiérrez, 2013).

[OCS: The idea that mathematics is political in nature is the type of bullpucky being spouted by the teachers seeking to corrupt our institutions to destroy capitalism, and our nation, in support of a socialist/communist political agenda.]

We committed ourselves to this understanding of the sociopolitical turn in mathematics education in our 2016 statement; however, we revisit it through a foundation of antiracism now. We cannot say teaching mathematics in an antiracist classroom is too much to expect of ourselves.

The protests in the streets are a call to engage the sociopolitical turn in all aspects of education, including mathematics. We must stay committed to the role that mathematics teaching and learning plays in our current Black Lives Matter mo(ve)ment and an antiracist society.

[OCS: Black Lives Matter is a communist front group and has nothing to do with anti-racism. Proof: say ALL lives matter or ask why thousands of inner-city black lives do not seem to be addressed by the group, and they go crazy. Q.E.D. BLM is both racist and communist.]

In part, we call on leaders in mathematics education to rethink collective action. We have to reimagine the role of parents working with teachers and school systems. We have to reimagine how our organizations work with and in school districts. In many ways, the current pandemic has opened up the space for new collaborations. As parents, teachers, and researchers, we have witnessed the deep commitment of parents to their children's education during this crisis as well as before. This is our moment to bring families and schools to new levels of collaboration by explicitly including parents in policy decisions as well as teaching mathematics.

[OCS: Collective action is the fundamental Marxist construct that powers the progressive socialist democrats. The unions actively fight parents who want to donate time and effort to the school or even help out in the classroom. The pandemic has exposed the incompetency of teachers and exactly what they are teaching. Parents are shocked and dismayed – willing to gravitate away from public schools towards charter schools.]

Bottom line…

There was one outstanding teacher in my elementary school, a few outstanding teachers in my junior high school, none in my high school. Most were pleasant but detached. None were political. Looking back, I think most of them “taught to the book” and were relatively uninterested in the subject matter.

The original idea of educating students to be productive members of society seems to have fallen by the wayside in favor of “socialized” students who require state guidance and assistance to make their way in the world. The communists could not be more pleased as we cripple our youngest generation and render them unable to compete in the real world.

What I learned from the impeachment vote today…

Seven members currently in the Senate cannot be trusted with our Constitution: Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey. The progressive socialist democrats will try something else with Trump to keep the nation distracted from the damage Biden is doing to the nation. They are already trying to damage potential 2024 presidential candidate Tom Cotton by asking what black would pick Cotton for president.

Biden-hat

We are so screwed.
