Texas CSCOPE Review - Your Guide to What is Being Taught in Texas Public Schools
from the Texas CSCOPE Review - "Around 2005, some of the ESCs decided to form a coalition with the purpose of creating
a curriculum they would sell to the school districts in their regions. They each chipped in $200 thousand and
started developing what was called CSCOPE, which according to the ESCs doesn't stand for anything."

The Art of War by Sun Tzu
From Wikipedia - "The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general,
strategist and tactician. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare.
It is commonly known to be the definitive work on military strategy and tactics of its time."

Three Votes To Check Tyranny
Springville Money Saver (NY)
Jan. 14th, 2014
By: Mark M.
Perhaps the most fundamental principle that this country was founded on was a firm belief and conviction that
our rights as human beings come from God and not from the state. John Adams, second president of the United States
famously said: "You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments; rights that cannot be repealed or restrained
by human laws; rights derived from the Great Legislator of the Universe." The government they envisioned was to have
the primary function of protecting those rights. The Bill of Rights spelled out what they thought were those basic
rights and the constitution was created to provide a mechanism to safeguard them. Sadly, most high school students
or even people of any age when asked where do our rights come from will answer "from the government".
The problem with that thinking is if government grants you your rights then they can also take them away. read more
Wake Up and Smell.....The Fluoride
Springville Money Saver (NY)
By: Mark M.
You all know the Village of Springville adds sodium fluoride to the municipal water.
Fluoride has been added to the water for quite some time in this community and in communities all across the country.
We have been told that it is for our benefit, that it promotes healthy teeth. This is the entire basis of the addition
of this bio-active chemical to our water at a cost to the community of thousands of dollars per year. read more

Below are two brief reports written by FREE members regarding NYSERDA's'
Regional Sustainability Development Plan meeting held on October 23rd, 2012 at NCCC.
The topic of the meeting was Agenda 21-related projects. Read on!
The NWO comes to your backyard and pretends you invited them. Communism is sweeping through this nation
under the guise of the environmental "save the earth" banner. Regional appointed governments and their PR
groups have been tasked with implementing the worst facets of Agenda 21 while using such buzz terms as
"smart growth" and "sustainability" to deceive the citizenry. Members of WNY's FREE group learned this
first hand at last Tuesday's WNY Regional Sustainability Plan Meeting at Niagara County Community College.
The meeting, run by a local environmental group called Ecology and Energy, was funded by a grant from the
NYSERDA as part of Governor Cuomo''s Cleaner, Greener Communities Program.
The whole basis of this green agenda proceeds on the assumption that CO2 driven global warming is settled
science and, therefore, any reductions in energy use (CO2 emissions) is a step in the right direction.
To not be mistaken here, I for one, along with other FREE group members, am not against individuals being
more efficient in their use of energy or the development of more 'sustainable' modes of living.
However, what I (we) stand against is the centrally planned, bureaucratically appointed, failed Keynesian
model of implementation that will leave the taxpayers on the hook with insiders benefiting and will do
nothing to increase the standard of living in our community.
To counter this maligned view with a more bottom-up free market approach, I offered two suggestions.
First, in order to combat runaway inflation and a legal tender Federal Reserve Note that is unsustainable
in nature, I suggested that our region look to develop a sound/hard money alternative currency. People can
then decide, along with businesses, how to transact. We could do something similar to an Ithaca hour or
get creative. I will leave that to people smarter than me. I also suggested that we look to remove fluoride
from the drinking water in order to save vast amounts of public money. The emerging science clearly reveals
that fluoride offers zero benefits while introducing many detriments to one''shealth, including lowered IQ
for infants and increased risk of many forms of cancer. Part of living sustainable is being healthy and
having a government that spends its tax revenues wisely.
It appears that we face an uphill battle here as the foundation of Agenda 21 has already been laid and the
structure is being erected. The working groups have already been assigned, the regional councils appointed,
and the projects already submitted. I was told directly that we have little to no recourse if we wish to stop
a project from moving forward. There you have it, America. You know not who the appointed officials are, why
they were appointed, or what they stand to gain, nor do you know any working group member or his/her motivations,
or even when these groups were assembled to hatch these plans. This is all being done 'in plain sight' and
with manufactured consent. All they want you to do now is vote on which project gets your money and which one
doesn't,'not on whether or not this even "makes sense at all" or whether we should scrap this model all together.
Pavlov's dog only needs to salivate at the project he likes best.
Here is another FREE member's take on the meeting:
On October 23rd, a few of us attended a NYSERDA meeting about sustainable living held at NCCC in Niagara
Wheatfield. I would like to tell you a little bit about it. It is horrible how they are ramrodding legislation
through that will severely restrict our freedoms and luxuries in order to "be sustainable". These people are not
elected but appointed and they are creating restrictive laws right in our own backyards now - literally.
Agenda 21 proponents use the Delphi Method to steer people into believing that their agenda is the people's'
agenda. At the meeting, they laid out plan options for us and asked us to vote on them by level of importance
to our region. There were many people at the meeting who were opposed to the whole notion of NYSERDA because
it is assumed by the options available (A,B,C,D or E) that we want any plan at all.
At one point, they showed a statistical pie chart of pollution due to greenhouse gases (GHG). The pie was divided
by category of guilty polluters. The top two polluters by far were residential autos at thirty-six percent (36%)
and residential homes at thirty-five percent (35%). The other eight or so categories of transgressors were all around
five or six percent (5-6%) with industry coming in last at one percent (1%). I raised my hand and, when called upon,
said that the problem is evident and the solution is simple - first, get the cars off the street and then, kick the
people out of their homes.
A more likely solution will be the restricted use of energy, or rationing. This is now remotely possible thanks to
our new smart meters which can cut services by remote control.
Near the end of the presentation, I said to the presenter that the polls taken so far have yet to address the real
issue. I then asked those in attendance by a show of hands how many would vote for dissolving NYSERDA's'
RegionalSustainability Development Plan altogether.
Twenty-five of thirty-six raised their hand.
I looked at the facilitator and suggested she take that statistic back to her planners.

Inflation! Recession! Depression! High gas prices! All seem to be here or seem to be imminent.
Wages are not keeping up with the increased dollar cost of items, they historically don't' and never will.
Our labor, or at least the value of it, has been stolen by the privately owned Federal Reserve by
carelessly printing money backed by nothing and then charging interest on that same nothing,
causing inflation. In this system, the private Federal Reserve Bank and the US government are the
only beneficiaries; a threat by stealth. Now, with an estimated 7.7 trillion dollars forced
on the market in the form of bailouts, we are beginning to feel the effects of inflation
and, unfortunately, the worst is yet to come.
To keep our community safe and our local businesses operating, even thriving,
we need a trusted medium of exchange; one that cannot be controlled;
one that has a finite value and cannot become over-abundant.
Precious metals are time-tested mediums of exchange in commerce that have stood the test
of time and are next to impossible to control.
By signing up as a merchant who accepts precious metals in return for goods and services,
you will receive FREE advertising on our website, allowing concerned citizens to easily
find your business in order to spend precious metals within our local economy.
Your participation can help off-set some of the insidious effects of inflation.
Precious metals may then be sold to metal dealers to exchange for Federal Reserve Notes (dollars).
As a private and free man or woman, you can take the steps NOW to save our community
by purchasing precious metals and using them in these stores!
You can also leave precious metals as a tip at restaurants.
These are great ways to get alternative currency flowing into our community.
Project Silver is a plan to help save our local area by simply spending in silver or
gold that which you would ordinarily spend with paper currency.
So start today! You can buy precious metals online or at stores in your neighborhood.
Together, we can spend our way to prosperity by empowering our local communities.
If you are a merchant who will accept precious metals in exchange for goods and/or
services, then please stay tuned for details on how you can become a part of Project Silver.
The Declaration of Independence
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
In Congress, JULY 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands
which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and
equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's' God entitle them, a decent respect to the
opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter
or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed,
will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and
accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than
to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism,
it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future
security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which
constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain
is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute
Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance,
unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained;
and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people,
unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature,
a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository
of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly,
for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative
Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining
in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for
Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither,
and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices,
and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices,
and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,
and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them,
by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an
Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example
and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters,
abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to
legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death,
desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy
scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country,
to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us,
and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose
known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms:
Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus
marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable
jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our
common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and
correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.
We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them,
as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled,
appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by
Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are,
and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the
British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought
to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude
Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States
may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of
Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

"The truth is historically suppressed by main-stream media.
Americans are presented with short overviews of half-truths,
endless feeds of sensationalized gossip and soap-opera type news stories.
The responsibility of presenting the truth to America in today's
'age of information'' has been severely neglected by those entrusted to the task.
'We the people' are filling the void."

"It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope.
We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth,
and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts.
Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty?
Are we disposed to be of the number of those who,
having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not,
the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost,
I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it."

"The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society.
Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values.
Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen
and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information
about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."
