Brookings Institution, Lamar Alexander and Civilization Jihad
It has been reported that the Brookings Institution, one of the country’s top left-leaning think tanks, has for the first time admitted to Congress that it receives millions of dollars every year from foreign governments, including Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, according to official disclosure forms obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Brookings has come under intense scrutiny by reporters and others for not fully disclosing the large amounts of cash it receives from Middle Eastern governments.
The practice has led some to accuse Brookings and its most prominent scholars of pushing biased analyses aimed at making these foreign governments look good. The think tank’s relationship with Qatar has received particular attention due to the Middle Eastern country’s close relationship with the terrorist group Hamas and its ongoing funding of various terrorist entities.
The disclosure form, which is presented to Congress before an individual testifies, reveals that Brookings received nearly $15 million from the Embassy of Qatar between 2013 and 2015. Brookings also maintains a facility in the Qatari capital of Doha, where Hamas is known to operate freely.
The think tank received another $1,920,000 from the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates between those same years.
As a Texas Mom this gives me great pause. Especially knowing what I know about the re-authorization of ESEA (Elementary and Education Act) which is being pushed full force by Senator Lamar Alexander, has passed both the U.S. House and Senate, is now in conference and when it emerges for a final vote will be well over 1400 pages long. The impact it will have on my local school district and my children will be much more devastating than (No Child Left Behind.) Here are several of the key points I hope other Moms and Dads will stop to think about.
- Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) delivered the key note address for the Brookings Institute where the idea that school districts across America are transitioning from the traditional model of assigning students to a school based on their residential address to a system that allows families a choice of schools. The reality of this will effectively hand our rights over to the government. How does a charter public school differ from a traditional public school? A locally elected school board. Charter Schools are generally run by an appointed board. That board is beholden to whomever is giving the money. Not the Parents or local tax payers. With this plan there will be NO CHOICE and NO VOICE. We will no longer be a constitutional republic but a democracy. Our forefathers warned us about the reality of a Democracy, it equals =mob rule. That is why in the United States we are a Constitutional Republic. They will have accomplished a revolution through education.
- While parents across the country are becoming more and more concerned with the issue of the Federal Government monitoring, tracking and collecting data on our children, it is very alarming to learn that Brookings also has a Center for Universal Education that partners with UNESCO for the UN education agenda where there is a focus on “Global Tracking” and the need to support development of more robust systems for assessing learning outcomes.
Being from Texas, we know, Texas did not need to implement the Common Core National Standards. We were apart of the creation of the first College and Career Ready Standards and a part of the American Diploma Project. We have been implementing the template from the beginning.
As I have said before this 3rd Radical Education Reform known as 21st Century Learning is the same Outcome based agenda that so many battled against back when Lamar Alexander was pushing it back in the late 80s early 90s.
The latest fundamental transformation in education is a centrally coordinated, reorganization of American education that has global tentacles that are a threat to America. Common Core is just a tactic to shift education from a transmission of knowledge, that parents still expect from our schools, to an emphasis on altering the students world-views, their values, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors.
You are no longer that boy from Amarillo, Texas who was a baseball star or in the band. You are now a global citizen. Not an AMERICAN.
American children are no longer to believe they are American’s living in a Global world, they are Global Citizen’s living in America.
Nationalism is destroyed. The US Constitution becomes Null and Void.
There are people with varying political agendas who are taking advantage of the revolution underway, with the goal of global domination. One of the most dangerous is the push for “Sharia” across the world.
As defined in the book “Sharia, a Threat to America”- “Civilization jihad is a form of political and psychological warfare that includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations, propaganda and other means of insinuating shariah gradually into Western societies.”
In the West a fundamental shift is beginning to be felt, as the American idea of individual freedom clashes with the political purpose of control and submission. The outcome will depend on if individuals refuse to submit.
When education is focused on how students perceive the world, that is known as critical theory or cultural marxism.
My question to you is…. Does the fact that the Brookings Institution, has for the first time admitted to Congress that it receives millions of dollars every year from foreign governments, including Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
In addition are we as Americans being deprived of the ability to have “Situational Awareness,” as Frank Gaffney the founder of the Center for Security Policy, describes in this video.
