It is with great delight that I announce to you that today we released “Education or Indoctrination? The Treatment of Islam in 6th through 12th Grade American Textbooks.”

ACT! for America Education Executive Director Guy Rodgers and I began discussing this project nearly four years ago. Today, that project is a reality—and I believe that one year from now you and I will look back on this as a truly historic accomplishment that helped change the course of education in America.

This report shines a bright light on a pattern of errors, omissions and bias in the textbooks reviewed. Our children deserve better. Our children deserve facts and accuracy, not historical revisionism.

To give you just one example of the errors our research uncovered, in discussing the 9/11 attacks, the textbooks typically fail to mention the perpetrators were Muslims or that they acted in the cause of Islamic jihad. In one book the terrorists are portrayed as people fighting for a cause. In just a few years after September 11th, the history of what happened on that tragic day was rewritten in our school textbooks. Omitting this vital information, that jihad was the motivation for the attacks, makes it difficult, if not impossible, for today’s young teens, who don’t remember 9/11, to really understand what happened that day—and why.

.CONCLUDING OBSERVATIONS

It’s all about the teeth.

In routine practice, much of this Executive Order is designed to streamline and expedite procurement processes already in place, bypassing bidding and providing emergency purchase loans.  And it imposes an overall strategic plan that is aimed primarily at preventing spot shortages and supply disruptions.  So far, this is in the nature of an incremental fix.  But we need to consider the players, the not-so-hidden agendas and the potential for abuse.

Because there are no meaningful disclaimers or limitations, constitutional or otherwise.

By design rather than innocent omission, I suspect that the architects of this Order have produced a template that works quite well in connection with the imposition of “martial law lite”. As to that notion I invite you to imagine a condition in which the acquisition by the government of otherwise private resources and the redirection of domestic civilian priorities is rapidly and expeditiously accomplished using a combination of loans, fine and outright takings.

Think of it, if you will, as if we were living in exposed tents on a large plain.  A few feral predators wander about, usually keeping out of sight.  But one day, we wake up to notice that things have changed overnight.  The predators are now lining up rank by rank with great discipline. They surround your encampment.  They have purpose.

We’ve been led into complacency by government inefficiency.

We wake up in an era when a single administrative agency (one of hundreds operating within the executive branch) has the power to write regulations that have the force of the criminal law, the power to prosecute and even to adjudicate.

One such agency has recently declared the very carbon dioxide you are exhaling when you read this to be a dangerous pollutant.

Given the gradual stealth power grab by the federal regulator bureaucracies over the last half century, with scarcely a whimper of protest, are we entitled to be gravely concerned when the Executive seeks to consolidate all that power for the noble purpose of “preparedness”?

There are two Americas.

No, I am not adopting occupy-style rhetoric that pits one group of Americans against another. What I am talking about is the fundamental difference between America’s entrepreneurial private sector and America’s cumbersome public sector.

Two quick anecdotes highlight the divide.

Last week, I had the opportunity to chat with an old friend who is in the private sector. He broke into the home building industry before the bubble burst, so he has seen the industry making record profits as well as businesses shuttering around him. And despite several tumultuous years, he worked hard, fought through adversity and climbed the ranks.

Rather casually, he mentioned the company was undertaking yet another round of modernization – an effort to improve inventory tracking at all of its warehouses, making it more accurate and much more efficient. It is just the latest in a series of moves by the company to become more efficient in everything from energy usage to work force management.

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman and Sharia? I've spent 12 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad
