BARACK OBAMA REVEALS WHY THEY NEED TO CONTROL TWITTER

Obama-distortion-field

There is no doubt in my mind that former President Barack Obama is one of the most malevolent manifestations of evil that has done significant damage to America and its citizens. It is not so much what he says because he has been known to tell the truth; if only to distract you from what he is doing behind the scenes.

So, I  find it helpful to examine his keynote speech presented at Stanford University’s Cyber Policy Center on behalf of the non-profit Obama Foundation.

Sometimes, the progressive communist democrats tell the truth…

(1)  It’s a different world.

(2)  The traditional mainstream media is dying, and we are surrounded by on-demand information.

(3)  You are most likely to consume the content you agree with, reinforcing your understanding and prejudices.

(4)  The new content distribution/consumption model presents a vulnerability to influencing individual and group behavior, especially after fatigue weakens our critical thinking.

Today, of course, we occupy entirely different media realities, fed directly into our phones. You don’t even have to look up. And it’s made all of us more prone to what psychologists call confirmation bias, the tendency to select facts and opinions that reinforce our preexisting worldviews and filter out those that don’t.

So inside our personal information bubbles, our assumptions, our blind spots, our prejudices aren’t challenged, they’re reinforced. And naturally we’re more likely to react negatively to those consuming different facts and opinions. All of which deepens existing racial and religious and cultural divides.

It’s fair to say then that some of the current challenges we face are inherent to a fully connected world. Our brains aren’t accustomed to taking in this much information this fast, and a lot of us are experiencing overload. But not all problems we’re seeing now are an inevitable byproduct of this new technology. They’re also the result of very specific choices made by the companies that have come to dominate the internet generally and social media platforms in particular. Decisions that, intentionally or not, have made democracies more vulnerable.

(5)  This vulnerability can be weaponized.

People like Putin and Steve Bannon, for that matter, understand it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken democratic institutions. You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing that citizens no longer know what to believe.

Once they lose trust in their leaders, in mainstream media, in political institutions, in each other, in the possibility of truth, the game’s won. And as Putin discovered leading up to the 2016 election, our own social media platforms are well designed to support such a mission, such a project.

I have a plan, even if it is to call for more government control over the instruments useful to disseminate the regime’s narrative and to stifle dissent…

So I want to make some general suggestions for what that work might look like. But before I do, let me offer a few stipulations so we don’t get bogged down in some well-worn, not always productive arguments.

Number one, media companies, tech companies, social media platforms did not create the divisions in our society, here or in other parts of the world. Social media did not create racism or white supremacist groups. It didn’t create the kind of ethnonationalism that Putin’s enraptured with. It didn’t create sexism, class conflict, religious strife, greed, envy, all the deadly sins. All these things existed long before the first tweet or Facebook poke.

[OCS: These are expressions of human behavior, and exploited by the progressive communist democrats to divide America into classes which can be manipulated to accrete political power. Using the basic division of oppressors versus the oppressed to refocus discontent on the opposition rather than the regime in power; to create a coalition whose numbers will yield an electoral majority or plurality, and to promise the disaffected redress for their real or imagined grievances in return for their political support.]

Solving the disinformation problem won’t cure all that ails our democracies or tears at the fabric of our world, but it can help tamp down divisions and let us rebuild the trust and solidarity needed to make our democracy stronger. And to take on anti-women mentalities, and deal with racism in our societies and build bridges between people. It can do that.

[OCS: This assumes that there exists an objective truth that is not capable of being manipulated or interpreted by partisan factions to support their self-interests. This is not always possible as reasonable individuals can disagree on many subjects based on their upbringing, education, experience, environment, peers, and overall worldview. The question is simple: what is disinformation and who is the ultimate arbiter of the debate?]

Second, we aren’t going to get rid of all offensive or inflammatory content on the web. That is a strawman. We’d be wrong to try. Freedom of speech is at the heart of every democratic society in America those protections are enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution. There’s a reason it came first in the Bill of Rights.

[OCS: These are true statements offered by a deceptive individuals to obfuscate the underlying truth. The hidden truth is that Obama and his cadre of progressive communist democrat acolytes have no respect for the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, and true free speech which challenges their regime’s narrative. In fact, Obama was awarded PolitiFact’s 2013 liar of the year award for his outright lie, “if you life your plan, you can keep your plan” in promoting the Affordable Care Act which was never affordable.]

I’m pretty close to a First Amendment absolutist. I believe that in most instances the answer to bad speech is good speech. I believe that the free, robust, sometimes antagonistic exchange of ideas produces better outcomes and a healthier society.

[OCS: This is a bald-faced lie which can be proven by a simple examination of the lengths to which the Obama Administration used government agencies to intimidate individuals and silence their free speech.]

No Democratic government can or should do what China, for example, is doing, simply telling people what they can and cannot say or publish while trying to control what others say about their country abroad. And I don’t have a lot of confidence that any single individual or organization, private or public, should be charged or do a good job at determining who gets to hear what.

[OCS: Another demonstrable lie proven by the Biden regime’s public-private alliance that censors information and cancels dissident access to the social media platforms.]

That said, the First Amendment is a check on the power of the state. It doesn’t apply to private companies like Facebook or Twitter, any more than it applies to editorial decisions made by The New York Times or Fox News. Never has. Social media companies already make choices about what is or is not allowed on their platforms and how that content appears, both explicitly through content moderation, and implicitly through algorithms.

[OCS: Journalistic standards, where a free press was able to speak truth to power, rarely exist in today’s corporate media environment. And it is deeply problematical when private companies act as de facto agents of the regime.]

The problem is, we often don’t know what principles govern those decisions. And on an issue of enormous public interest, there has been little public debate and practically no democratic oversight.

[OCS: We very well know the principles that should govern those decisions. What we really don’t know is the motivation of those institutions and individuals who make those decisions. The democratic oversight comes from the marketplace where consumers can chose to believe and act in their self-interests. No government oversight required.]

Three, any rules we come up with to govern the distribution of content on the Internet will involve value judgments. None of us are perfectly objective. What we consider unshakeable truth today may prove to be totally wrong tomorrow. But that doesn’t mean some things aren’t truer than others or that we can’t draw lines between opinions, facts, honest mistakes, intentional deceptions.

[OCS: What’s this “we” bullpucky? We let the marketplace decide, not government, not non-profits, not foundations, not partisan hacks, or others. This is a subtle call for oversight and censorship. Asking the public to say, "maybe" instead of, "hell no!"]

We make these distinctions all the time in our daily lives, at work, in school, at home, in sports, and we can do the same when it comes to Internet content, as long as we agree on a set of principles, some core values to guide the work. So, in the interest of full transparency, here’s what I think our guiding principles should be.

[OCS: There is no “we.” The guiding principals are: the U.S. Constitution and its freedoms including freedom of speech, and the rule of law. All ideas are debated and are discretionary, not defined and mandated .]

The way I’m going to evaluate any proposal touching on social media and the Internet is whether it strengthens or weakens the prospects for a healthy, inclusive democracy, whether it encourages robust debate and respect for our differences, whether it reinforces rule of law and self-governance, whether it helps us make collective decisions based on the best available information, and whether it recognizes the rights and freedoms and dignity of all our citizens.

[OCS: The internet was envisioned as an open platform for information exchange without monitoring or censorship. No proposed rules are necessary for this self-governing apolitical body.  To impose control over the internet is to diminish or destroy the rights, freedoms, and dignity of all participants.]

Whatever changes contribute to that vision, I’m for. Whatever erodes that vision, I’m against, just so you know.

[OCS: Consider Obama’s words carefully. He is telling us that whatever changes contribute to his progressive communist democrat agenda he is for. And, since our Constitution, capitalist system, and American exceptionalism erodes that vision, he is against it.]

To read the transcript in full and in context, or watch the video, it can be found on the website of Tech Policy Press, a nonprofit media and community venture intended to provoke new ideas, debate, and discussion at the intersection of technology and democracy.

Bottom line…

Obama is evil, the serpent trying to sell Americans on despotism and slavery on behalf of the regime governed by elites like Obama. The king of scandals who lies about everything. 

Obama lecturing America on disinformation is a slap in the face. They need censorship and cancellation to prevent the upcoming electoral disaster. They are terrified about Musk taking over Twitter and allowing the Americans to learn the truth.

We are so screwed.

OBAMA CALLS FOR MORE CENSORSHIP

Obama-distortion-field

The Communist-in-Chief, Barack Obama, whose scandal-plagued Administration has materially damaged the United States, calls for more censorship.

The progressive communist democrats need the media moguls and tech tyrants to engage in greater censorship to keep American voters in the dark about what the progressive communist Democrats have done to America.

While Obama is infinitely more likable than Hillary Clinton, he is equally as corrupt and manipulative – and infinitely more dangerous to our freedoms because he hides behind a friendly façade, protected from scrutiny and criticism by his race.

It is no wonder that Obama’s suddenly found new passion is fighting the type of “disinformation” that could destroy the Democrat Party, highlight the criminality of his administration, expose the nefarious nature of all those who have sold out America to its enemies, corrupted our electoral system, engaged in an attempt to interfere with a presidential election, promoted an authoritarian regime, and are destroying what little there might be left of his legacy.

Think about Obama’s definition of disinformation…

The way I define disinformation is if you have a systematic effort to either promote false information or to suppress true information for the purpose of political gain, financial gain, and suppressing others,” Obama said at the University of Chicago.

And ask yourself, was this disinformation?

How many people remember Obama saying “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” when pitching the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) initiative?

What if that was said today, and the media moguls and tech tyrants censored or canceled dissent? Even PolitiFact awarded Obama’s assertion their 2013 “Lie of the Year” award. And, it sure meets Obama’s definition of disinformation.

How many people remember Obama’s National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes openly bragging about creating a media “echo chamber” of spin that supported a “largely manufactured” narrative about the one-sided Iran nuclear deal that bypassed the Senate Treaty process. Ben Rhodes is a featured panelist discussing “THE THREAT OF DIGITAL AUTHORITARIANISM: What are the most effective ways to defend open democratic systems in a global digitized world?

Or when Obama's Ambassador to the United Nations  Susan Rice went on all five Sunday morning news programs to say that the attack in Benghazi, Libya was a protest over a YouTube video … which was a narrative ginned up the night of the attack -- and finally exposed by the WikiLeaks revelation of John Podesta's emails.

Once again, we see a political charade…

Notice how the progressive communist democrats confuse and conflate the necessity to harden our communications platforms against cyberthreats with their attempt to control information flow using these communications channels.

I agree that we should have a mechanism for suppressing the illegal entry of unauthorized individuals, organizations, and state actors into our platforms – whether to surveil subjects, steal intellectual property or insert false information into a trusted system. However, this does not equate with allowing those with legitimate access to these systems to be censored, or their access canceled when they deviate or challenge the regime’s narrative of the day.

Speech highlights…

“Tech companies need to be more transparent about how they operate.”

[OCS: Like the tech tyrants want to expose their proprietary algorithms, the root of their power?]

“So much of the conversation around disinformation is focused on what people post. The bigger issue is what content these platforms promote.”

[OCS: The blame falls on the posters, and it must be the platform's responsibility to censor content or cancel accounts. Proof positive that platform operators have become publishers and Section 230 “platform” protections against legal action for libel, slander, and defamation is a scam.]

People like Putin, and Steve Bannon for that matter, understand it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken democratic institutions. You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing that citizens no longer know what to believe.”

[OCS:  Notice the attempt to equate Russian dictator, and now war criminal, Putin with Bannon, an outspoken conservative voice?

This methodology appears to be the Democrat’s upcoming defense against Hunter Biden’s laptop information. They will flood the media and social media with wild claims from crazy-making nut-jobs; thus, the credibility of any legitimate information looks unreliable and is no longer credible to the public. This is what happened with the hard information on voter fraud.]

If you want to watch Obama’s hour-long keynote speech, “Challenges to Democracy in the Digital Information Realm,” or some of the panel discussions, they can be found on the Stanford Cyber Policy Center website.

Questions…

(1)  Why do the progressive communist democrats claim they support the Constitution’s First Amendment freedoms and then attempt to limit these freedoms by demanding one accept the regime’s narrative at face value without critical analysis?

(2)  Why do the progressive communist democrats fear a healthy debate over subjects that deeply affect Americans? Even limiting minority participation in Congressional investigations?

(3)  Who is to determine the truthfulness of contradictory narratives? The government? A hyper-politicized partisan “activist” group? George Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth?” A private organization claiming to b a neutral non-partisan watchdog like the Obama Foundation?

(4)  When did the press, the so-called “Fourth Estate” that purports to speak truth to power turn into political propagandists and substitute a narrative or commentary for straight news reporting? Can they even be trusted today?

Where progressive communist democrats are going...

The queen of disinformation, Hillary Clinton, is pushing a global censorship initiative. Is it a coincidence that Obama is promoting the same initiative but must first soften up America to accept an international agency that supersedes America's sovereignty?

Hc-1

Where Obama is going...

Look forward to Obama using his foundation to get into the news business, either as a consultant, content provider, or, most likely, some type of news watchdog. You will be able to judge the level of partisanship by seeing if the Obama crew is willing to attack such blatant disinformation sites as CNN, NBC, MSNBC, the DailyMail, the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast, or similar progressive propaganda sites? Will Obama adhere to his definition of disinformation even when dealing with progressive communist democrats? 

Bear in mind that Obama is essentially a grifter looking for a free ride and big bucks. 

Bottom line…

There is no doubt in my mind that President Barack Obama, his cadre of acolytes, and especially high-ranking members of his administration, are unindicted felons who are guilty of materially damaging America. 

Likewise, there is no doubt in my mind that the progressive communist democrats must keep the truth from Americans lest they vote a thoroughly corrupt and compromised Democrat Party out of power.

Perhaps no better example exists than the suppression of information about Hunter Biden’s laptop, the corruption of the Biden family, and the lack of information about Joe Biden’s mental fitness for office, which could have altered an election.

Followed by the propagation of false and misleading information related to the pandemic. Followed by the suppression of information about electoral fraud. Followed by the various attempts to demonize and attack Donald Trump. Followed by the dismal failure of the Administration’s domestic and foreign policies.

The American people still do not have definitive information on Benghazi, Iran, Afghanistan, Ukraine – and the list grows longer each day.

The Democrats have no platform, they only have cover-ups and hatred for their opposition. That's why Republicans may not have all of the answers or be able to solve all problems, but the Democrats remain the proximate cause of the majority of these problems.

We are so screwed.

WE CANNOT TRUST SENIOR INTELLIGENCE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS

First, a month before the  2020 election, a letter claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop information “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation” while simultaneously admitting “we do not have evidence of Russian involvement .”

Public Statement on the Hunter Biden Emails (October 19, 2020)

“It is for all these reasons that we write to say that the arrival on the US political scene of emails purportedly belonging to Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, much of it related to his serving on the Board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

“We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement -- just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.”

Among those 51 individuals that signed the letter were high-ranking intelligence officials like former CIA director Mike Hayden, former director of national intelligence Jim Clapper, former CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta, and former CIA director John Brennan. Many are allegedly potential co-conspirators in nefarious activities involving the Obama Administration and the Trump/Russia hoax. All guilty of participation in a dishonest Democrat operation to subvert the candidacy of Donald Trump and promote the cognitively impaired Joseph Biden, who was unfit to serve as the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of America’s military.

Now it is a plea to continue the big tech monopoly that permits censorship and cancellation to fight disinformation and misinformation – defined as anything that runs counter to the regime’s narrative of the moment.

Open Letter from Former Defense, Intelligence, Homeland Security, and Cyber Officials Calling for National Security Review of Congressional Tech Legislation (April 18, 2022)

“In the face of these growing threats, U.S. policymakers must not inadvertently hamper the ability of U.S. technology platforms to counter increasing disinformation and cybersecurity risks, particularly as the West continues to rely on the scale and reach of these firms to push back on the Kremlin.

[OCS: Disinformation and cybersecurity should not be confused or conflated – cybersecurity is a national security imperative, disinformation or propaganda is a product of all political regimes and can only be countered with more free speech, not less. Let us not forget that most of these technology companies have operations in hostile foreign nations and appear willing to censor foreign citizens on behalf of those hostile regimes.]

But recently proposed congressional legislation would unintentionally curtail the ability of these platforms to target disinformation efforts and safeguard the security of their users in the U.S. and globally.

[OCS: Again confusing and conflating platform security with censorship.]

Legislation from both the House and Senate requiring non-discriminatory access for all “business users” (broadly defined to include foreign rivals) on U.S. digital platforms would provide an open door for foreign adversaries to gain access to the software and hardware of American technology companies. Unfettered access to software and hardware could result in major cyber threats, misinformation, access to data of U.S. persons, and intellectual property theft. Other provisions in this legislation would damage the capability of U.S. technology companies to roll out integrated security tools to adequately screen for nefarious apps and malicious actors, weakening security measures currently embedded in device and platform operating systems. Our national security greatly benefits from the capacity of these platforms to detect and act against these types of risks and, therefore, must not be unintentionally impeded.

[OCS: Again confusing and conflating platform security with censorship.]

We call on the congressional committees with national security jurisdiction – including the Armed Services Committees, Intelligence Committees, and Homeland Security Committees in both the House and Senate – to conduct a review of any legislation that could hinder America’s key technology companies in the fight against cyber and national security risks emanating from Russia’s and China’s growing digital authoritarianism. Such a review would ensure that legislative proposals do not enhance our adversaries’ capabilities. It is imperative that the United States avoid the pitfalls of its key allies and partners, such as the European Union (EU), whose Digital Markets Act (DMA) passed without any consideration of national security repercussions – despite repeated concerns from the Biden administration, including over potential cybersecurity risks.

[OCS: Americans should fear America’s growing digital authoritarianism rather than concentrate on foreign boogeymen who already exert iron-fisted control over their media and technology companies.]

There were also bipartisan congressional fears that the DMA would benefit “powerful state-owned and subsidized Chinese and Russian companies,” which could have “negative impacts on internet users’ privacy, security, and free speech.” Even in light of these security concerns, the EU’s refusal to undertake a national security assessment led to none of them being addressed. The U.S. government must not make this same mistake.

[OCS: Cybersecurity has nothing to do with free speech. In fact, truth be told, it is the progressive communist democrats who are defining free speech as anything that does not contradict the regime’s narrative; thus, proving free speech as used in this context is propaganda, not free speech.]

Funny that the letter was signed by some of the same individuals who were involved in the Hunter Biden laptop affair and who are deeply entrenched in the nefarious activities of the Obama Administration and need the continuing protection of the big tech companies necessary to censor the news or cancel dissident speech that could reveal their treasonous and criminal activities. Here are some of the names: former Director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper, former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh C. Johnson, former Acting Director and Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Michael J. Morell, and former Director, Central Intelligence Agency and former Director, National Security Agency Admiral Michael S. Rogers.

Translation…

Please don’t consider pending legislation seeking to break up Google, Facebook, and Amazon’s monopoly would jeopardize the Democrat’s ability to censor the news and cancel dissident’s platform access to keep the truth from American citizens. It is not about national security or the ability to counter foreign disinformation – it's about withholding upcoming information that clearly demonstrates that Democrat dirty tricks subverted the 2016 and 2020 elections and may be used in the 2022 and 2024 elections.

Let us not forget that the majority of the media moguls and tech tyrants are supporting the progressive communist democrat regime and supporting hostile foreign governments. Just ask Disney about its free speech in China, where it censors movies to remove embedded LGTBQ+xyz indoctrination meant for the American market.

Bottom line…

America is facing “digital authoritarianism” on behalf of the progressive communist democrats. We need to fight back now and not be bamboozled by conflating critical cybersecurity and so-called disinformation. As for the signatories of these letters, most are Obama activists who should be investigated and prosecuted as conspirators who significantly damaged this nation.

We are so screwed.

BIDEN TO RUN IN 2024: BULLPUCKY

Considering the damage that Barack Obama and Joe Biden have wreaked on the United States with the progressive communist democrat agenda, I wonder about the evil intent of any media that would suggest that President Joe Biden is mentally or physically fit to hold the Office of the President of the United States – now or in the future.

JB-COMMUNIST-COMMEDY

Biden has told Obama he’s running again

President Biden has told former President Obama that he is planning to run for reelection in 2024, two sources tell The Hill. 

[OCS: Sources? Do you mean liars and leakers like James Comey, Alexander Vindman, the putzes at Fusion GPS?]

The admission to Obama is the latest indication that Biden is likely to run for a second term, something the president has spoken about publicly. 

During a press conference in Brussels last month, he told reporters he’d be “very fortunate” to run against his rival in the 2020 election, former President Trump.  

“[Biden] wants to run and he’s clearly letting everyone know,” said one of the two sources familiar with the conversations between Obama and Biden. 

The source also said that Biden, despite his faltering approval ratings, remains the most likely Democratic candidate to defeat Trump. This was a key part of Biden’s salesmanship to voters as he sought support for his 2020 bid — and a big reason primary voters rallied to him in South Carolina and Super Tuesday states where he sealed his status as the Democratic front-runner.  <Source>

I don’t believe this anonymous bullshit for a second…

(1)  Joe Biden’s approval numbers are circling the toilet.

(2)  Joe Biden is physically and mentally challenged.

(3)  Joe Biden’s handlers, essentially Obama’s cadre of acolytes, are attempting to circumvent the facts on the ground, deflect attention from Biden,  and make everything about Donald Trump.

(4)  There has never been any degree of respect or warmth between Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Obama was famously quoted as saying, "Don't underestimate Joe's ability to fuck things up." Therefore it is unlikely Obama accepted Biden's comment as credible. if it was actually made,

Bottom line…

Bullshit-- steve

THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS ARE DELIBERATELY KILLING OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURE

MATH-TRUTH

It should be quite troubling to the average citizen that their children are being shortchanged by the progressive communist democrats, even as they talk about preparing children to compete in a modern global economy.

When I was in high school, my next-door neighbor studied for his Ph.D. in physics. As part of his preparation for the advanced mathematical techniques used in theoretical physics, I was paid to photocopy, cut and paste math problems with the answers into quiz books for his study program.

As part of his employment by a large aerospace and defense contractor, he was sent to a conference in Russia. He returned with a Russian slide rule for me and two suitcases of Russian math books for me to process for his studies. But the most interesting thing he observed was that Russian students were given the type of study guides I was preparing. The average Russian elementary student started with a better understanding of math than our high school students -- and most Russian high school students had mastered senior college-level mathematics by the time they graduated. Nobody taught Russian students that calculus was “hard” or that boys did better in math and science than girls.

So why am I not surprised that “woke” educators, many subject-matter deficient, are trying to push race and social justice into the math curriculum?

Florida Rejects Publishers’ Attempts to Indoctrinate Students

Tallahassee, Fla., April 15, 2022 – Today, Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran approved Florida’s initial adoption list for mathematics instructional materials properly aligned to Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards. The approved list followed a thorough review of submissions at the Department, which found 41 percent of the submitted textbooks were impermissible with either Florida’s new standards or contained prohibited topics – the most in Florida’s history. Reasons for rejecting textbooks included references to Critical Race Theory (CRT), inclusions of Common Core, and the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics. The highest number of books rejected were for grade levels K-5, where an alarming 71 percent were not appropriately aligned with Florida standards or included prohibited topics and unsolicited strategies. Despite rejecting 41 percent of materials submitted, every core mathematics course and grade is covered with at least one textbook.

Overall, Florida is initially not including 54 of the 132 (41 percent) submitted textbooks on the state’s adopted list. The full breakdown is below:

78 of 132 total submitted textbooks are being included on the state’s adopted list.
28 (21 percent) are not included on the adopted list because they incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT.
12 (9 percent) are not included on the adopted list because they do not properly align to B.E.S.T. Standards.
14 (11 percent) are not included on the adopted list because they do not properly align to B.E.S.T. Standards and incorporate prohibited topics or unsolicited strategies, including CRT.
Grades K-5: 71 percent of materials were rejected.
Grades 6-8: 20 percent of materials were rejected.
Grades 9-12: 35 percent of materials were rejected.

It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house built on the foundation of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “I’m grateful that Commissioner Corcoran and his team at the Department have conducted such a thorough vetting of these textbooks to ensure they comply with the law.”

When it comes to education, other states continue to follow Florida’s lead as we continue to reinforce parents’ rights by focusing on providing their children with a world-class education without the fear of indoctrination or exposure to dangerous and divisive concepts in our classrooms.”

Florida’s transparent instructional materials review process ensures the public has the opportunity to review and comment on submitted textbooks. The instructional materials process allows Florida to prevent publishers from incorporating inappropriate, ineffective, or unsolicited concepts and strategies into instructional materials that will dilute the quality of Florida’s nationally-recognized education system.

In 2019, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32 to set Florida on the path to eliminate Common Core, develop world-class education standards, and increase the quality of instructional materials, and this textbook adoption is another important step in affirming Florida’s commitment to high-quality, lawful and world class instruction.

In 2021, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) called for bids from publishers to submit proposed mathematics instructional materials to be included on the state’s adopted list. Florida has been clear that instructional materials must first and foremost be aligned to Florida’s new B.E.S.T. Standards. In fact, FDOE proactively informed publishers in June 2021 that textbooks must align to the B.E.S.T. Standards, state laws regarding required instruction, and that they should not incorporate unsolicited strategies such as SEL in their instructional materials.

It is unfortunate that several publishers, especially at the elementary school grade levels, have ignored this clear communication and have attempted to slip rebranded instructional materials based on Common Core Standards into Florida’s classrooms, while others have included prohibited and divisive concepts such as the tenants of CRT or other unsolicited strategies of indoctrination – despite FDOE’s prior notification. <Source>

How CRT impacts mathematics…

(1)  For most sane individuals with commonsense, mathematics is the objective language of science that helps explain our universe. It is apolitical, color-blind, non-sexual, and subject to nothing other than the rigorous attempt to build constructs from definitions and assumptions. Few can even imagine how Critical Race Theory or social justice can impact such a rigorously objective discipline.

(2)  Those attempting to introduce CRT and other such social justice concepts into the curriculum do it in multiple ways.

A.  Controlling access to the teaching process and mandating racial or sexual requirements for teachers in the field, using affirmative action techniques to increase the number of “woke” BIPOC administrators and instructors.

B.  By dumbing down instructional materials to the lowest common denominator to promote “equity” in mathematics. This includes restricting and/or eliminating special access programs for top achievers.

C.  By altering the narrative used to explain math concepts and problems. Using the language of the ghetto and barrio when designing instructional materials and eliminating problems illustrating elite white reality. Delving into the personal lives of non-white mathematicians and scientists as concepts are introduced. Or racializing problems by noting that while the tally of votes is a straightforward arithmetical process, those doing the counting might suppress or short-count BIPOC votes, thus promoting inequality.

D.  By injecting uncertainty into mathematics by claiming that the choice of our enumeration system was political and there are other historic numerical systems or number bases such as those used in the computer sciences (e.g., binary, octal, hexadecimal). Mathematical multi-culturalism and moral equivalency.

(3)  It allows soft-science socialist academicians to promote their toxic political power agenda with meaningless bafflegab like “re-conceptualizing mathematics education to create a system that finally values and builds upon the achievements and histories of those traditionally marginalized within it.”

Bottom line…

“We be explaining infinity today by counting non-cis heteronormative genders. Let’s start with the definitions. What is heteronormative, and how can we  determine the states of privilege.”

We are so screwed.

CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATS KNOW BEST: BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR DOCTOR

The sacred bond of trust between you and your doctor is about to be broken by the progressive communist democrats who rule the State of California…

Ca-bad-medicine

California legislature—2021–22 regular session
ASSEMBLY BILL No. 2098

Introduced by Assembly Member Low; (Coauthors: Assembly Members Aguiar-Curry, Akilah Weber, and Wicks; Senators Pan and Wiener)
February 14, 2022

An act to add Section 2270 to the Business and Professions Code, relating to healing arts.

Legislative Counsel’s Digest 

AB 2098, as introduced, Low. Physicians and surgeons: unprofessional conduct.


Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of physicians and surgeons by the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. Existing law requires the applicable board to take action against any licensed physician and surgeon who is charged with unprofessional conduct, as provided.

This bill would designate the dissemination or promotion of misinformation or disinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or “COVID-19,” as unprofessional conduct. The bill would require the board to consider specified factors prior to bringing a disciplinary action against a physician and surgeon. The bill would also make findings and declarations in this regard.           

2270. (a) It shall constitute unprofessional conduct for a physician and surgeon to disseminate or promote misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.

  (b) The board shall consider the following factors prior to bringing a disciplinary action against a licensee under this section:

(1) Whether the licensee deviated from the applicable standard of care.
(2) Whether the licensee intended to mislead or acted with malicious intent.
(3) Whether the misinformation or disinformation was demonstrated to have resulted in an individual declining opportunities for COVID-19 prevention or treatment that was not justified by the individual’s medical history or condition.
(4) Whether the misinformation or disinformation was contradicted by contemporary scientific consensus to an extent where its dissemination constitutes gross negligence by the licensee.

It appears that politicians often overlook existing or effective legislation and introduce dangerous, misleading, contradictory, conflicting, or confusing new legislation to prove somehow that they are “doing something.

Consider this rule relating to alternative or complementary medicine and mentioning Lyme Disease.

California Code, Business and Professions Code - BPC § 2234.1

(a) A physician and surgeon shall not be subject to discipline pursuant to subdivision (b), (c), or (d) of Section 2234 solely on the basis that the treatment or advice he or she rendered to a patient is alternative or complementary medicine, including the treatment of persistent Lyme Disease, if that treatment or advice meets all of the following requirements:

(1) It is provided after informed consent and a good-faith prior examination of the patient, and medical indication exists for the treatment or advice, or it is provided for health or well-being.

(2) It is provided after the physician and surgeon has given the patient information concerning conventional treatment and describing the education, experience, and credentials of the physician and surgeon related to the alternative or complementary medicine that he or she practices.

(3) In the case of alternative or complementary medicine, it does not cause a delay in, or discourage traditional diagnosis of, a condition of the patient.

(4) It does not cause death or serious bodily injury to the patient.

(b) For purposes of this section, “alternative or complementary medicine,” means those health care methods of diagnosis, treatment, or healing that are not generally used but that provide a reasonable potential for therapeutic gain in a patient's medical condition that is not outweighed by the risk of the health care method.

(c) Since the National Institute of Medicine has reported that it can take up to 17 years for a new best practice to reach the average physician and surgeon, it is prudent to give attention to new developments not only in general medical care but in the actual treatment of specific diseases, particularly those that are not yet broadly recognized in California.

Today's politicians cannot accurately describe the science of the day without resorting to a political narrative. Therefore, they should shut the fuck up and leave it to the marketplace of ideas to hash out a version of the truth -- unmolested by the government. To this end, the government cannot define disinformation or misinformation to any useful degree of certainty.

What we know...

(1)  Medicine is not an absolute science as treatments vary with an individual's physiology, current condition, environment, and support mechanism.  There is no such thing as "The Science" and individuals like Dr. Fauci are little more than bureaucrats in white lab coats.

(2)  Any government narrative or action is based on the politicization of the subject matter, how it affects the existing power structure of the current regime,  and how it affects special interests with a stake in a particular outcome.

(3)  Relative to current information, the information provided by the government about Covid-19 and its treatment was incorrect, deeply flawed, ineffective, or downright deadly to particular groups of individuals. Therapeutics were not as effective or lacked the efficacy that was initially advertised.

(4)  The government engaged in an unconstitutional attempt to silence its critics or those that provided alternative scenarios by engaging in a public-private workaround where the mainstream media and social platforms were encouraged, either directly or indirectly, to censor information that did not comport with the government's narrative or cancel the accounts of those dissenting voices. 

(5)  Because of the potential to generate billions of dollars in profits with a reoccurring revenue stream, alternative low-cost therapeutics and practices were discouraged.

Side with your personal physician...

Bottom line...

This is just another progressive communist democrat attempt to control the medical narrative; the conscientious physician be damned -- especially if they recommend a course of action that does not support the regime's narrative.

We are so screwed.

WHY DO TODAY'S EXECUTIVES APPEAR UN-AMERICAN?

Have American executives been so cowed and feminized by educators, the media, and their peers as to lack the fundamental courage to act in times of national emergency?

Scared executive

It's not that they are evil or stupid, but they have worked so hard to achieve their current position that they are literally afraid of losing what they have achieved.

They have become risk-averse, willing to go along to get along. Fearing the media, vocal activists, and other scared executives that could trigger a life-changing avalanche resulting in job loss and financial disaster.

They are so fearful that they have developed tunnel vision. They myopically see the lone troll in a basement projected against a green screen which makes them seem potent and powerful. And, it's all an illusion.

Unfortunately, being risk-averse, they remain quiet and agreeable rather than risk public disgrace that follows from conduct considered by some vocal individuals or organizations believes to be wrong or viciously oppressive.

Even with an abundance of "fuck you" money, they link their self-worth and value with their public persona -- unwilling to risk ill-will toward them or their family to do the right thing.

Of course, there remains the possibility that they can be scared while simultaneously being both evil and stupid.

Bottom line…

Think about how disgusted a World War II vet would be to see you squander the freedom and liberty they fought for, sacrificed, and died to preserve our exceptional nation. What they might say about those who argue about which bathroom to use or how some plan to teach sexual perversions to little children in order to make them feel better about themselves? How they might react to criminal gangs roaming their neighborhoods while politicians attempt to disarm law-abiding citizens?  Or following orders from an incompetent, mentally- deficient Commander-in-Chief?

Time to stand up and reject and the progressive communist democrat pussies while there is still time.

We are so screwed.
