Glenn Beck: Common Core, System X, Rise of Fascism
glennbeck.com ^ | 3-28-13 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 03/28/2013 6:39:57 AM PDT by Texas Eagle

Yeah, yeah. I know a lot of people have a problem with Glenn Beck. To be honest, I do too, sometimes.

But this is something worth listening to.

He lays out how we are being intentionally distracted in order to slip the truly insidious agenda contained within the stimulus packages, Common Core and other Progressive initiatives.

Correct. He’s laying the groundwork right now.

In 1942, Stuart Chase, in his book “The Road We Are Traveling” spelled out the system of planning the Fabians had in mind.

1. Strong, centralized government.

2. Powerful Executive at the expense of Congress and the Judicial.

3. Government controlled banking, credit and securities exchange.

4. Government control over employment.

5. Unemployment insurance, old age pensions.

6. Universal medical care, food and housing programs.

7. Access to unlimited government borrowing.

8. A government managed monetary system.

9. Government control over all foreign trade.

10. Government control over natural energy sources, transportation and agricultural production.

11. Government regulation of labor.

12. Youth camps devoted to health discipline, community service and ideological teaching consistent with those of the authorities.

13. Heavy progressive taxation and hidden taxes on nations wealth.

The Fabian Socialist Revolution began in earnest in 1933 with the imposition of the Welfare State and has been steadily progressing since.

12. Youth camps devoted to health discipline, community service and ideological teaching consistent with those of the authorities.

There's one very amusing caveat to this rule with the kids: adherence.

Kids today are so enmeshed in their social media, self-aggrandizing media websites, cable TV, and video games that trying to get kids on board with any sort of "health discipline," which usually involves sweating, any sort of community service, or any sort of ideological teaching is going to be VERY difficult.

The Fabians, the progressives, and the Alinskyites wrote their manifestos during a time when newspapers ruled the roost. These days, kids are so interconnected and lazy that many of their formerly-workable solutions are falling completely flat because kids are fickle.

This is the fundamental problem with liberalism: they don't think like adults or for adults. When they try to draw in the kids, they're working with very unreliable portions of the populace.

I hope you're right.

The thing is, they don't need EVERY kid to comply. Just enough.

I would suggest that the fabian movement was already well entrenched in America before 1933 and had already been the primary mover behind the creation of government run child indoctrination centers "public education", not to mention the financing the communist takeover in Russia.

We will need to roll back their abuses using the same method of incrementalism.

Stuart Chase went to Russia in 1927 and became in love with their central planning. That is why he wrote his book.

Russian Central Planning worked out so well didn’t it? The Chicoms are doing the same but introduced capitalism. The Russians are now following suit.

o’stoner and gang are following an old failed model and killing what was once the greatest economy in the world.

...I know a lot of people have a problem with Glenn Beck...

..with all due respect, I would like to know specifically what the "problem" would be?

Beck to me has the same basic message as the Boy Scouts.

"Be Prepared"

He doesn't ask anyone to believe a word of what he says..he always presents the documents and books that he uses for his presentations and admonishes everybody to read the info for themselves.

Please, do not take this as a criticism of your post.

I just believe that if everyone followed Beck's basic advice to "be prepared" the unfortunate disasters of Katrina, Sandy and, yes, even Sandy Hook would not be such a disaster since everyone would have backup food, shelter and in the case of Sandy Hook, a system which would have prevented the shooter from getting near the school.

I'm not so sure. History has shown kids take to fascism like ducks to water - especially if they are products of a school system that imparts zero critical thinking skills. Give them a chance to win a free XBox cartridge for turning in their gun-stashing parents and they'll go for it every time.

I kind of like Glenn Beck and a lot of the things he’s said. My problems with him are:

1. He cries way too much. It’s embarrasing to rally behind a guy that’s crying. It’s sort of like if you’re a kid on a playground and some kid says “hey, is that you’re brother crying over there?”

2. He’ll read up on some topic for a month, and then he instantly becomes an expert know-it-all. “If you’ve studied the history of the USA like I HAVE...”

3. He always “I’ve predicted this in the past, and it came to pass. Even ask my wife if I predicted this five years ago.”

SUNY.edu: Cradle To Career

“If we want America to lead in the 21st century, nothing is more important than giving everyone the best education possible - from the day they start preschool to the day they start their career.”

— President Barack Obama (If that's his real name)

New York's Community-Based Cradle to Career Partnerships

SUNY views education as a continuum that begins at birth and is carried on through school, college, career, and even into retirement. SUNY's Office of the Education Pipeline is establishing a series of systemic and sustainable regional education networks across the state and bringing together partners who have signed on to strengthen this educational continuum. SUNY's partners include leaders in Pre-K-12 schools, higher education, business and industry, community organizations, government leaders, parents and other stakeholders who are committed to helping children succeed from birth through careers.

In partnership with Strive, SUNY is helping communities all around the state to adapt a framework for civic infrastructure to serve as the foundation of their cradle to career efforts. Partnerships have officially launched in Albany, Astoria/Queens, Clinton County, Geneva, Harlem, and Rochester; many more are starting to take shape, including Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, Farmingdale, Mohawk Valley, and Yonkers. Together these local partnerships form the SUNY New York State Cradle to Career Alliance - the first statewide network in the nation!

Give a bunch of thug-wannabe, obese teenage boys some black ninja outfits, riot gear, and an AR15 and let them loose on the streets. That’ll work out REAL well: it’ll make them stand out like sore thumbs in the “lighter” parts of town.

This shit might fly in the northeast. They start showing up on the streets of Clearwater, FL, and I know at least a few hundred rednecks who’ll show up with twice as much ammo and a few thousands yards of rope.

And I’m sorry to say that Tom Luna, head of the Idaho Dept of Education is fully on board with the Common Core program, and has even taken Beck to task over his objections.

At Luna’s level, it’s about money. At higher levels, it’s about indoctrination and control.

Sam Blumenfeld and Charlotte Iserbyt explained this 25 years ago.

The goal is:

• Free government childcare/schooling from birth through age 22.
• An on-line computer for each child.
• Use the computer to gather every kind of information about the child and his family.
• Use the computer to implement a curriculum to remediate the child's thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
• Steer children into careers chosen for them by the government.

If anyone is skeptical, read this letter from the President of the National Center on Education and the Economy to Hilary Clinton, in 1992.

As for me and my household, we decided to homeschool.

One of the lessons of modern history: all it takes to seize total power is a small cadre of individuals with a sense of purpose and the will to power.

Slaughter and atrocity ensue.

If you have access to it, a tremendous movie exploring that subject is ‘The Wave’. It is subtitled in English since it is a German movie-—but it is impressive. If you have Netflix, it is on there.

He does put out some good info. However, he cries more than a 7 year old girl and is a drama queen. That rubs dudes the wrong way, including myself.

So it isn’t the information he puts out, but his personality that many don’t like. I certainly can’t speak for everyone though.

Here is what is happening here in GA from the stopcommoncore.org:

March 7, 2013

A somewhat revised version of S.B. 167 was heard on March 4, 2013 in the Senate Education and Youth Committee. After becoming apparent that the bill would not have the votes to pass out of committee, bill sponsor Sen. Ligon requested that no vote be taken on the bill. This procedure allows the bill to remain alive for the 2014 Legislative Session.

Our Gov. Nathan Deal (R) quietly got this passed and implemented in 2010. The Republicans got this passed. What in the name of all that is holy were they thinking??

Please go to stopcommoncore.org to learn more.

Also please see the great youtube video's about this at: No to Common Core

Being prepared would mean to me that when a disaster strikes, I don't want to add to the problem by taking up room in the food line or the shelter or have to "fight" at Kroger's for food to last for 3 or 4 days..

...or there is a "glitch" in the banking system: a solar flare, or a cyber attack..which disables the ATM's and credit card system so that it is impossible to get cash or buy stuff.....

...it IS going on as we speak in Europe, and we are one lunatic decision away from being in the same situation right here in River City.

I am not a "doomsday prepper". I am not storing 3 year's provisions or fortifying my "compound". If there is domestic strife, I intend to fight it out in my front yard.

Most natural disasters will last for less than 2 weeks, so if we all just could "survive" on our own for that amount of time, we would all be ok.

Food, water, toilet paper, battery radio, gas in your car, good books, and a little cash which will get you thru 2 weeks will do the trick for most of the disasters.

“Most natural disasters will last for less than 2 weeks, so if we all just could “survive” on our own for that amount of time, we would all be ok.”

One helluva lot more clarity/detail is required on that first fragment of the sentence. Therein lies the big unknown. That is when most chaos will set the stage for anything that occurs later, if you survive.

people have been talking about collapse, choase, break down of society my whole life. every 5 years a new “end of the world” comes along. Remember the dreaded Ice Age that was going to freeze us all to death, destroy our food supplies, back in the 70s? Its all nonesense - just a way for people to sell survival gear and make others feel secure. Its always good to keep a few weeks supplies on hand for natural disasters, fires, loss of electricity. But to build your life upon it is unhealthy and unrealistic. Same with hoarding all this ammo. Just making yourselves big targets for thieves.

I agree..

...I was addressing natural disasters.

Man made disasters are another thing...they can last a lifetime...and they are the ones that the "preppers" are addressing IMO.

I am too old and too tired and too lazy, I suppose, to prep for what a lot of people anticipate....which is a total breakdown of society.

I will have to admit that I have not been successful in convincing my adult children the urgency of being prepared for chaos and what will happen when hungry, low info people come looking for food....but that is my failure.

I know whatcha mean in convincing youth, of anything actually. Most of us seem to have gone through that stage, although generally not in combination with the events of these times. So that is not a failure. Hopefully they will not need to learn the hard way. Age—I am in later years as well, although we am prepping, and if something doesn’t happen “soon”, I’ll be “operating” a lazyboy rocker instead of a Ghille suit. ;-)
