Anonymous Blogger: Political Information

Note: Anonymous Blogger is someone who passes on handwritten blog posts to inform us on bills moving in the house and senate, whether nationally or at the state level. Because of her hard work, I have given her a platform. However, with the publication of my magazine, I have not been able to publish it until now. SO if something has already passed, forgive me.

Anonymous Blogger: Your Child’s Education and Agenda 21

My anonymous blogger dropped by last week with a rather thick envelope. She’s truly done her homework this time, too. The envelope bulged. What I found were several interesting articles from various sources, listed here if you are interested:

Gateways: To Better Education: Speaking about 16-year old athiest, Jessica Ahlquist who initated the court ruling of taking down a prayer banner that’s been up at the school since 1963.

While many people are frustrated that the banner came down, at Gateways we are calling on students around the country to modify the prayer for their own school and recite it daily in class. How can they do that, you may ask?

And…

Justice Clark who wrote the majority opinion said, “…the state may not establish a ‘religion of secularism’ in the sense of affirmatively opposing or showing hostility to religion, thus ‘preferring those who believe in no religion over those who do believe…it might well be said that one’s education is not complete without a study of comparative religion of history of religion and it’s relationship to the advancement of civilization. It certainly may be said that the Bible is worthy of study for its literary and historic qualities.”

Pacific Legal Foundation: Their newsletter, “Rescuing Liberty,” dated March 2012. This document seems to have many things in it from EPA abuse to the Supreme Court and Obamacare. The first page speaks about the Sacketts–the people whose property the EPA claims is on a wetland and arbitrarily is trying to stop them from building upon it. This is why we have the constitution. No government agency should have the right to our property.

American Policy Center: (ampolicycenter@hotmail.com) This letter speaks about Agenda 21, one of many names such as Cap and Trade, Smart Growth, Global Warming, Social Justice, and Public/Private Partnerships. There is no date on this letter to refer the publication, but if you email them, I’m sure they can send you a copy.

In conjunction, “Reprint From the DeWeese Report,” (www.DeWeaseReport.com), Volume 15 – Issue 8, has a headline, “Tea Parties and “End the Fed” Protests cannot win back the Republic Without This Information!”

Now onto her letter to me:

Dear Nikki,

Thought you might like to see these two “papers.” Good news from Pacific Liberty Foundation! Gateways To Better Education i sone of the best groups to inform teachers, parents and students of their religous rights. Also, they are trying to block the homosexual agenda in the public schools. A good group to support (Christian) if you know of anyone who would be interested.

Also, I am sending along the DeWeese Report on sustainable development which I believe I’ve informed you about a little before.

State: Also, we need to call state senator Steve Pierce and state house of reps, Karen Fann and Andy Tobin. Let them know we do not want them to support new taxes to fund Obamacare in Arizona. 1-800-352-8404.

Ask them to please sign the Americans for Prosperity Healthcare Freedom Bridge.

Federal: Call Kyle, McCain, and Gosar and ask them to declare Obama’s Executive Order: The National Defense Resources Readiness Preparedness Act NULL AND VOID. This would give Obama the power to declare martial law, take over the economy, food and water supply, manufacturing, etc in time of war. It would give him a back door to exacting socialism in the U.S. in time of war. If we delcared war on Iran very likely Hezbollah cells in the U.S. would bomb cities in the U.S. giving him the power to enact this. It does need to be blocked by congress. Too much power in the hands of the executive branch.

Thanks, Anonymous

Note: Read Craig Shirley’s book named, “1941.” FDR had too much power and ruled private businesses, homes, and with little or no proof took away basic rights from U.S. citizens. He was a progressive. He had more power than King George. Don’t let history repeat itself for that was what FDR had in December, 1941–something akin to marital law. The Bill of Rights became just a piece of paper and no one challenged him. Those that spouted against him were fined or thrown in prison.

Anonymous Blogger: Our Children’s Education and Other Stuff

The envelope appears on my desk with my name scrawled across the front. It’s not anonymous to me, but this dear woman tirelessly researches the bills. She submits her blogs via pen and paper instead of email. You can view the phone numbers here. Most of the letters address Arizona’s representatives and senators. You can call your own senator or representative if the bill is national.

Dear Nikole,

The following are bills or issues we need to call about:

Call: Kyle, McCain, and Gosar and ask them to repeal or defund IPAB–the Independent Payment Advisory Board–a provision of the new healthcare law. It robs Americans of the freedom to make their own healthcare choices as well as placing astonishing powers in the hands of a few unelected officials, including disbersements of tremendous amounts of federal money. Healthcare will be rationed as a result of IPAB’s cost-cutting decisions. Ask Gosar to support HR452 and Kyl and McCain to support s668.

Also, call Kyle, McCain and Gosar to support and co-sponsor the Social Security Guarantee Act HR1052. This will give seniors a legally binding guarantee to their social security benefits.

ISSUES:

Congress aproves (is responsible for) or disapproves funding for public school curriculum. Call Kyle, McCain and Gosar–ask them to support abstinence-sex education: This is better as a means of savings financially for the U.S. preventing sexually transmitted diseases and out-of-wedlock pregnancies as well as more importantly contributing to the mental and emotional health of our youth. Statistics show greater depression and suicide attempts among those who are promiscious or who engage in pre-marital sex

Also (to Kyle, McCain, and Gosar) that they fund only curriculum that accurately reflects the founding and history of our country, including our founding documents such as the Mayflower Compact, Declaration of Independence, Constitution and contributions and life history of our foundign fathers.  And the fact that our laws are based on our Judeo-Christian heritage.

Also, that in our science textbooks there be equal time given to the theory of creation as well as the theory of evolution, etc. Also, that curriculum state that marriage is the union of one man-one woman as the norm based on nature, the five major religions, current law and societal tradition.

These issues might be called in at different times to our legislatures so as not to overwhelm them and just to be wise. Our youth’s education is of great importance for the well-being of our country.

From 2/2/2012….

We had two drop-offs and so I am combining both into one post. Here’s our anonymous blogger’s note from February 2.

Dear Nikole,

We do have a few things to call about:

National:

1) Call McCain and Kyle, and ask them to vote no on senate bill 6, “Amnesty Plus.” It would grant amnesty to illegals, cut immigration enforcement, tear down the border fence and allow terrorists to recieve assylum in the U.S.

2) Call Kyle, McCain, and Gosar–ask them to vote yes on Senate-Joint Resolution 11–the term limits for all amendment. This would help to rein in career politicians.

STATE OF ARIZONA

3) We have an excellent Christian legaslative group at the State Capital called Center for Arizona Policy. They sponsor and try to pass good legislation and defeat bad legislation. There are two school choice bills that have passed in the state Senate so they now go to the House. Please call Andy Tobin and Karen Fann to vote to support these C.A.P. bills.

4) Call Steve Pierce to support C.A.P.’s bills, HB2625–Domestic Relations Disposition of Property–HB2626–Empowerment Scholarship Accounts–Expansion and HB2610–Charitable Organizations Filings.

5) Call Kyle, McCain, and Gosar–ask them to vote for passage of the English Language Unity Act and against passage of House Congressional Resolution 8. (a flyer is available through English, Inc.).

I believe we can trust any bills that Center For Arizona Policy sponsors as they are definetly Christian and conservative.
