Colorado English Teacher Resigns In Blog Post 

Due To Common Core Standards

Published on Apr 14, 2014
In a viral blog post, a Colorado public school teacher resigned from her position as a high school English teacher in protest to Common Core standards. Pauline Hawkins wrote in part:

"I can no longer be a part of a system that continues to do the exact opposite of what I am supposed to do as a teacher - I am supposed to help them think for themselves, help them find solutions to problems, help them become productive members of society. Instead, the emphasis on Common Core Standards and high-stakes testing is creating a teach-to-the-test mentality for our teachers and stress and anxiety for our students. Students have increasingly become hesitant to think for themselves because they have been programmed to believe that there is one right answer that they may or may not have been given yet. That is what school has become: A place where teachers must give students "right" answers, so students can prove (on tests riddled with problems, by the way) that teachers have taught students what the standards have deemed are a proper education."

Hawkins has been teaching for 11 years at Liberty High School in Colorado Springs, but her tenure will come to an end when the school year ends. The Common Core standards have frustrated many teachers around the country after being created by the National Governors Association and adopted in 44 states.

Hawkins joined Martha MacCallum this morning on America's Newsroom, explaining that what has frustrated her the most about Common Core is watching her own son, a third-grader, as he progresses through elementary school.

"He's struggling to keep up with where they want him to be and he'd come home every day, crying, [saying] 'I hate school,'" she said, adding that the government standards fail to take into account that every student learns differently.

"They have certain skills that they want the kids to have at a certain time, at a certain age, at a certain grade level. And kids just aren't made like that. We're all different," said Hawkins, who added that there are "good intentions" behind the standards, but the implementation is much too rigid.

Hawkins said she and her colleagues have become overwhelmed by paperwork and data collection, taking valuable time away from creating lesson plans and helping students learn.

Teacher Slams Common Core 

in Resignation Letter: 

I Can't Be Part of the System 

That's the Opposite of Teaching:


 My Resignation Letter
Dear Administrators, Superintendent, et al.:
This is my official resignation letter from my English teaching position.
I’m sad to be leaving a place that has meant so much to me. This was my first teaching job. For eleven years I taught in these classrooms, I walked these halls, and I befriended colleagues, students, and parents alike. This school became part of my family, and I will be forever connected to this community for that reason.
I am grateful for having had the opportunity to serve my community as a teacher. I met the most incredible people here. I am forever changed by my brilliant and compassionate colleagues and the incredible students I’ve had the pleasure of teaching.
I know I have made a difference in the lives of my students, just as they have irrevocably changed mine. Teaching is the most rewarding job I have ever had. That is why I am sad to leave the profession I love.
Even though I am primarily leaving to be closer to my family, if my family were in Colorado, I would not be able to continue teaching here. As a newly single mom, I cannot live in this community on the salary I make as a teacher. With the effects of the pay freeze still lingering and Colorado having one of the lowest yearly teaching salaries in the nation, it has become financially impossible for me to teach in this state.
Along with the salary issue, ethically, I can no longer work in an educational system that is spiraling downwards while it purports to improve the education of our children.
I began my career just as No Child Left Behind (NCLB) was gaining momentum. The difference between my students then and now is unmistakable. Regardless of grades or test scores, my students from five to eleven years ago still had a sense of pride in whom they were and a self-confidence in whom they would become someday. Sadly, that type of student is rare now. Every year I have seen a decline in student morale; every year I have more and more wounded students sitting in my classroom, more and more students participating in self-harm and bullying. These children are lost and in pain.
It is no coincidence that the students I have now coincide with the NCLB movement twelve years ago–and it’s only getting worse with the new legislation around Race to the Top.
I have sweet, incredible, intelligent children sitting in my classroom who are giving up on their lives already. They feel that they only have failure in their futures because they’ve been told they aren’t good enough by a standardized test; they’ve been told that they can’t be successful because they aren’t jumping through the right hoops on their educational paths. I have spent so much time trying to reverse those thoughts, trying to help them see that education is not punitive; education is the only way they can improve their lives. But the truth is, the current educational system is punishing them for their inadequacies, rather than helping them discover their unique talents; our educational system is failing our children because it is not meeting their needs.
I can no longer be a part of a system that continues to do the exact opposite of what I am supposed to do as a teacher–I am supposed to help them think for themselves, help them find solutions to problems, help them become productive members of society. Instead, the emphasis on Common Core Standards and high-stakes testing is creating a teach-to-the-test mentality for our teachers and stress and anxiety for our students. Students have increasingly become hesitant to think for themselves because they have been programmed to believe that there is one right answer that they may or may not have been given yet. That is what school has become: A place where teachers must give students “right” answers, so students can prove (on tests riddled with problems, by the way) that teachers have taught students what the standards have deemed are a proper education.
As unique as my personal situation might be, I know I am not the only teacher feeling this way. Instead of weeding out the “bad” teachers, this evaluation system will continue to frustrate the teachers who are doing everything they can to ensure their students are graduating with the skills necessary to become civic minded individuals. We feel defeated and helpless: If we speak out, we are reprimanded for not being team players; if we do as we are told, we are supporting a broken system.
Since I’ve worked here, we have always asked the question of every situation: “Is this good for kids?” My answer to this new legislation is, “No. This is absolutely not good for kids.” I cannot stand by and watch this happen to our precious children–our future. The irony is I cannot fight for their rights while I am working in the system. Therefore, I will not apply for another teaching job anywhere in this country while our government continues to ruin public education. Instead, I will do my best to be an advocate for change. I will continue to fight for our children’s rights for a free and proper education because their very lives depend upon it.
My final plea as a district employee is that the principals and superintendent ask themselves the same questions I have asked myself: “Is this good for kids? Is the state money being spent wisely to keep and attract good teachers? Can the district do a better job of advocating for our children and become leaders in this educational system rather than followers?” With my resignation, I hope to inspire change in the district I have come to love. As Benjamin Franklin once said: “All mankind is divided into three classes: Those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.” I want to be someone who moves and makes things happen. Which one do you want to be?

Protestants Who Don’t Unite With Catholics 

Are Guilty of “Spiritual Racism”

Tony Palmer and Pope Francis Believe 

Protestants are Spiritual Racists:



SEE:; republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes; including original source:

LTRP Note: In March, we posted “The Unification of Hyper-Charismatics and the Catholic Church,” an article by Roger Oakland, discussing the recent hearty endorsement Kenneth Copeland gave the Catholic church via his public meeting with “evangelist” for the Catholic church, Anglican Tony Palmer (who claims Pope Francis is his mentor). John Lanagan is now presenting further evidence of this ecumenical uniting taking place under the guise of Christian brotherhood. If you are not sure why the Catholic church is NOT biblical Christianity, please do the homework. We offer countless articles and resources on this subject. Underneath the video below, you can see some of those. Things are moving very quickly right now. Bible-believing Christians watching this video will sense an urgency as we are called racists who are standing in the way of spiritual progress. The stage is being set for persecution on those who do not take the road to Rome.

By John Lanagan
My Word Like Fire Ministries
 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. (2 Peter 2:1)
What are the strands that will be woven together to form the false church?
Tony Palmer states he receives financial support from Kenneth Copeland and claims he has been “consecrated” by Pope Francis to be a bridge for further unity among Protestants and Catholics. You may have seen the message from the Pope that Tony Palmer played at Kenneth Copeland’s convention. It is included in the below video.
According to Palmer, “…the protest of Luther is over. And therefore now we are all living in a post-Protestant era…” (8:00 in video)
The Protestants who disagree are suffering from “spiritual racism.” (8:40) Click here to continue reading this article by John Lanagan.
But…is unity with the Catholic Church even possible?
Palmer says, “It’s the glory that glues us together, not the doctrines. If you accept that Christ is living in me and the presence of God is in me and the presence of God is in you that’s all we need. Because God will sort out all the doctrines when we get upstairs.” (13:48)
Really? The Lord will sort out all the doctrines in heaven? Christ is very concerned with doctrine (teaching) and deception cannot take place without departure from His doctrine.
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. (1 Timothy 4:16)
Palmer, from the Anglican tradition, has served three popes. He uses a 1999 document between Catholics and Lutherans (?) as indication that the Catholic Church now lines up with Protestant (biblical) understanding of justification.
Yet, the Council of Trent’s ruling of hundreds of years ago has never been overturned by the Catholic Church. That historic ruling makes clear the division in belief.
What about the Pope’s “infallibility”?
And what about praying to Mary and the saints?
I am the Lord, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images. (Isaiah 42:8)
What about seeking forgiveness of sins through a priest?
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus… (1 Timothy 5:6)
And what about the Eucharist?
What about purgatory? Where in the Bible is there a temporary version of afterlife suffering?
Pope Francis is clearly a kind man, and a humble man. But that is not the issue. I am grateful for the stand Catholics take on abortion. I am very grateful for my Catholic education and my Catholic friends. But that is not the issue.
Catholicism is not biblical Christianity.
Mike Bickle of International House of Prayer tried to bring the Catholics into his One Thing conference several years ago. Fortunately, this did not happen. Link
There will be other efforts, as we can see by this Kenneth Copeland supported gentleman, Tony Palmer. Are we watching the beginnings of the charismatic movement (Copeland, Bickle etc.) aligning with Catholicism?
Pay particular attention to the last six minutes of this video.
And do not be deceived.

Unity but at What Expense?

New Concerns Arise Over Liberty University’s ‘Gay’ Choreographer as Play Opens on Campus







April 13, 2014: BLM to Bundy Ranch: 

"you'd better hope that 10,000 show up":

Published on Apr 13, 2014
Dan Love, BLM Special Agent-in-Charge, assigned to the Bundy Ranch Standoff was secretly recorded, on April 10th, while on duty issuing threats to on-the-scene reporter Pete Santilli from Guerrilla Media who was also issuing threats of Citizen's Arrest while seeking peaceful resolution and a de-escalation of the unfolding event.

The first voice you hear in this audio is of Pete Santilli asking, "Where's the cattle?"

The next voice, the lower voice is of Dan Love from BLM. Some of the highlights of the recording, transcribed (this transcripted EDITED for length and continuity, listen to the actual audio if you want every single word).

Santilli: "We want zero conflict. You know, confrontational, nose to nose..." And then later, "Are we going to be here screaming at you, and you're gonna be tasing, are you gonna do that type of confrontation. What we are trying to do is to completely de-escalate, 100%."

Santilli: "What we're going to ask for to de-escalate and to make sure we are not in confrontation with you... we want to let you know that we're going to come here and it's going to be non-negotiable what we believe in, and what we believe is the right thing to do."

Dan Love: "We have two federal court orders, and if you interfere, you will be arrested. If you impede and interfere, you will be taken into custody."

Santilli: "Tell DC Justice [Eric Holder] this is non-negotiable... but if you choose to go face to face and people get hurt, then we are going to hold you personally accountable."

Dan Love: "And I will hold you legally accountable. And I guarantee that the Constitution is on my side and not that side... Your Constitutions aren't decided on the dirt... you can fight that argument from jail."

Santilli: "It's not gonna be a fight, it's gonna be a non-negotiable terms, peacefully. If you bring violence..."

Dan Love: "If you interfere, if you impede, you will be arrested. I don't know how you plan on arresting me, but good luck with that."

Santilli: "There are gonna be some law enforcement officials who are gonna be going to jail."

Dan Love: "Yeah, don't do that. That's not gonna end well for ya. That doesn't happen. And again, I've seen your numbers right now, you'd better hope that 10,000 show up..."

Dan Love: "You're telling me you're gonna show up and arrest officers? That's not gonna happen, Mr. Santilli."

Santilli: "If anyone is unconstitutional, is not following to abide by their oath to the U.S. Constitution, they are going to be arrested including the Sheriff of this county."

Dan Love: "Okay, you start with him, go arrest Mr. Gillespie, and once you accomplish that you come back..."

Santilli: "He will be incarcerated if he fails to uphold his oath to the U.S. Constitution... he will go to jail."

Dan Love: "I'm telling you right now I'm putting YOU on warning as the messenger, if you violate, if you impede, if you interfere with two lawful court orders, you will be prosecuted, you will be arrested."

Santilli: "They are unlawful court orders.... I did not come here to do anything but to give you the opportunity to prevent a scenario where you're going to make a decision to cause harm to people."

Dan Love: "We're lawfully here! Do you see all these signs? You're in an enclosed area, you're on federal land..."

Santilli: "It's not federal land."

Dan Love: "It is federal land. I am positive."

Santilli: "I'll bet you lunch."

Dan Love: "Mr. Santilli, if you were right, I wouldn't have a job. So you know what? Be right. Get it changed, and then I'm happy not to wear this little gold shield..."

Santilli: "Do you know how dangerous it is for you to run around with a gun and a badge with what you just told me?... That you actually believe that you have the Constitution, and the law behind you, and the entitlement and you have a badge and a gun?"

Dan Love: "If you come unlawfully, to impede or interfere, you will be arrested. Non-negotiable."

BREAKING Bundy Ranch Interview: 

Government Cattle Rustling Violates Constitutional Rights:

Published on Apr 11, 2014

Alex is joined by David Knight live from Clark County Nevada with embattled rancher Cliven Bundy covering the ongoing battle between the cattleman and the Bureau of Land Management and the utter violation of rights that is in progress.

The Founders were opposed to providing a centralized federal government with unlimited authority to purchase and, as is routinely the case today, seize state and private land.
During the federal convention debates in September, 1787, Elbridge Gerry, who later went on to serve as vice president under James Madison, contended federal purchase of land "might be made use of to enslave any particular State by buying up its territory, and that the strongholds proposed would be a means of awing the State into an undue obedience."

In order to make certain the federal government did not abuse the Enclave Clause, the words "Consent of the Legislature of the State" were added.

Tasering of People by BLM:

Published on Apr 10, 2014

Ammon Bundy, the son of besieged Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, told Infowars reporter David Knight today around 20 cowboys went on land claimed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and retrieved cattle.
"We gathered about 30 head," said Bundy. "We did have a small confrontation with them, but they didn't have the forces to do a whole lot. They couldn't mobilize fast enough and we were able to gather those cattle and get them to the ranch."
Cliven Bundy and his family are currently engaged in a standoff with the BLM over a long standing refusal to acknowledge a 1993 modification to grazing rights on land that Bundy asserts has been in his family since 1870. On Saturday, hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy's cattle in northeastern Clark County.

If Feds Take Your Cattle & Property, YOU Become Cattle;


Published on Apr 9, 2014

Government is using environmentalism to confuse the public and the Left/Right paradigm to divide the public so they can enslave us in an Agenda 21 future where we have no property and no rights. The last rancher — "the last man standing" — across the Mojave Desert to the Pacific Ocean, Cliven Bundy, is in a fight for his rights and your rights against a federal bureaucracy that's out of control.
The government preaches "sustainability" and preservation of water and endangered species. But people who collect rainwater on their own property are fined and thrown into jail in Oregon. And in Florida, the government tries to evict a woman because she's off the grid using solar power and rainwater, citing violation of "international codes". And in Nevada, the same bureaucracy that is closing public lands to ranchers who have had grazing rights since 1877 in order to save a tortoise, is killing over a thousand of the same tortoises in their care.
When the government takes your property, takes your cattle — YOU become cattle, dependent upon them for food.

A brief update on the confrontation today in Bunkerville. One of the Bundy boys was tasered AGAIN! Brand Thornton was next to him and pulled the wires out before they could take effect, but the wounds bled for sometime. The Feds had NO medical anywhere around. The 20-30 vehicle convoy shown here did NOT need to stop and threaten the protestors. They did so partially to punish them for leaving the designated "Free Speech Zone." I will try to post more but YT is giving me a hard time on these uploads, so I will add updates as I can and they might not be in chronological order.

Feds Arrest And Beat Up Rancher Bundy's Son;

Seize All Their Cattle:

Published on Apr 9, 2014

Highlights from the powerful Interview with the currently surrounded Nevada Cattle Rancher Cliven Bundy. He describes how his son was arrested and beaten by the feds.
The BLM says they're moving in, not to encroach on the man's property rights, but because Bundy didn't pay "grazing fees," which the Bureau has imposed on land developers "who disturb tortoise habitat on public land," according to the Associated Press.
Throughout the housing boom in the 2000s, the Bureau was earning enough to fund the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center (DTCC) in southern Las Vegas, a habitat "created in 1991 to house wild desert tortoises removed from the path of development and to use those tortoises to aid recovery of the species." Its operating budget was about $1 million per year.
