Indiana House Votes to Repeal Common Core #stopcommoncore

Stop Common Core Illinois

Truth in American Education –

The Indiana House passed SB 91 on a 67 to 26 vote.  SB 91 authored by State Senators Scott Schneider (R-Indianapolis) and Dennis Kruse (R-Auburn) in effect repeals the Common Core State Standards.

Here is the bill digest:

Adds a definition of “college and career readiness”. Provides that before July 1, 2014, the state board of education (state board) shall adopt Indiana college and career readiness educational standards. Provides that during the 2015-2016 school year, the state board shall authorize the department to administer either the ISTEP assessment or a comparable assessment program that is aligned with the educational standards. Provides that before the state board may authorize a new assessment program, the state board shall submit the proposed assessment program to the budget committee for review.

Democrats Defeat Amendments to Protect Americans from Obama IRS Abuses

tomfernandez28's Blog

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, today offered two amendments in the Judiciary Committee to safeguard citizens’ free speech against unlawful and unjust targeting and designations by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

“Nearly nine months ago, President Obama declared the IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative groups ‘intolerable and inexcusable,’ yet his administration has authored a new rule to specifically limit free speech for many of those groups, which are classified as ‘social welfare’ organizations,” Sen. Cruz stated.

“Free speech is not a partisan issue. The IRS has no business meddling with the First Amendment rights of Americans. Rather than further stifling free speech, the IRS and the Department of Justice should provide the American people with all the facts surrounding the IRS’s targeting of certain organizations based on their political activity. We should all agree the IRS should not be used as a tool for partisan warfare.”

Yuan can become dominant world reserve currency

The Chinese yuan can overtake the dollar as the leading international reserve currency, a new poll of institutional investors indicates.

The authors of the survey, conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit and commissioned by State Street financial services, polled 200 senior executives at institutional investors with knowledge of their exposure to yuan assets. Half of the respondents were from the firms headquartered in mainland China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan) and the other half were based elsewhere.

The report accompanying the survey points out that by the end of 2013, the yuan has risen to become the second-most-used trade financing currency and ninth-most-used currency for payments globally.

A majority – 53 percent of respondents said that they believe the yuan will one day surpass the dollar as the top currency in international holdings of foreign-exchange reserves. In China 62 percent expressed this opinion, compared to 43 percent of respondents outside…

The Delusional Western View of the Ukraine—and Everything Else We See

Starship Earth: The Big Picture

I’m afraid Dr. Paul Craig Roberts’ translation of the situation in the Ukraine (below) also accurately reflects the painful reality of Western views concerning the unfolding of not only this, but the bulk of the issues comprising our planet today.

Many of us are so entrenched in our thinking and invested in our opinions that we deny what we see with our own eyes. Denial abounds! What we ‘think’ we know runs interference so we can gallop for the end zone of ‘rightness’, unmolested by pesky clues that there are perhaps additional relevant details in our periphery that we have ignored.

The mere fact that we need an ‘alternative media’ to learn the truth is a testament to the brutal path we have already taken. Yet, even when those sharing the alternatives present the facts, we still question based on our own contaminated idea of what is, and why.
