The methods, ideologies, and funding of an education plan have come into question after a North Carolina Superior Court Judge ordered state financial executives to fund a plan that one investigative reporter says is more of the same disguised indoctrination programming.
Article by Matt McGregor from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
Lawmakers are saying Judge David Lee’s order to transfer $189.8 million to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), $1.5 billion the Department of Public Instruction, and $41.3 million to the University of North Carolina System for the implementation and management of the plan, is a violation of the separation of powers.
According to a spokesperson for Senate Republicans, the North Carolina State Constitution allows for only legislatures to decide which policies are enacted into law and how much money is spent on those policies.
The plan in question comes from a San Francisco education firm called WestEd, a firm that was hired in 2018 through a task force established by Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat.
Local media outlet WRAL highlighted state departments and foundations that funded WestEd in a total amount of $1.52 million, such as DHHS putting more than $600,000 into the report, as well as The Goodnight Educational Foundation, which also donates to state Republican and Democrat lawmakers, putting $250,000 into the report.
Lee’s order stems from a 1997 lawsuit, Leandro v. State of North Carolina, carrying a state Supreme Court ruling that decided children have rights to “sound, basic education.”
Lee oversaw the determination to hire WestEd as the Cooper administration has become a participant in the case through the task force.
The spokesperson said the plaintiffs and the defendants are allies working together to get the judge to order the plan into law.
“In fact, the plan with WestEd was funded in large part by the Cooper administration, so you have the defendant, the Cooper administration, paying for a budget plan that they are supposed to be defending against,” the spokesperson said.
Education First Alliance
Sloan Rachmuth, an investigative reporter and president of Education First Alliance, a parent/teacher-advocacy organization that investigates policies and curriculums in the K-12 North Carolina school system, said critical race theory (CRT) and social-emotional learning (SEL) are at the core of WestEd’s plan.
Though CRT is a Marxist philosophy that claims society is a class struggle between oppressors and the oppressed, specifically labeling white people as the oppressors and all other races as the oppressed, the phrase has come to encompass for many teachers and parents a more expansive trend that incorporates not only issues of race but also themes of sexuality.
According to WestEd’s primer, the concept behind SEL is based on a “comprehensive notion of human development as taking place in and across four domains: psychological, cognitive, social, and emotional.”
“The thesis behind SEL on the Left is that kids need mental health help,” Rachmuth said. “We don’t argue with that. What we say is universal screening for mental health issues is inappropriate and unconstitutional. It’s examining the contents of one’s mind.”
Rachmuth compared the method to Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong’s “Four Olds,” a title that referenced a citizen’s traditional ideas, cultures, habits, and customs that, according to Mao, needed to be eradicated for the party to thrive.
“SEL not only examines the contents of the mind, it then uses psychiatrists who are using a treatment that is based on critical race theory,” Rachmuth said. “It’s reminiscent of the USSR and the abuse of psychiatry that happened there.”
During its reign, the USSR had state psychiatrists who would diagnose political dissidents with multiple disorders such as “sluggish schizophrenia” and paranoia as a condition causing dissent.
“You have to be able to examine a baseline of where the attitudes and beliefs are, then you need repeated trials to make sure that the intervention is working,” Rachmuth said. “The best way to counteract misinformation or an old habit is through narrative, not through facts. That is why you are seeing the abolishment of facts and the insertion of SEL in every single academic discipline because it allows for use of narrative to deprogram.”
The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI) announced in June 2020 that it would partner with the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) to bring SEL standards to the K-12 classroom.
CASEL, a Chicago-based education firm, is largely funded by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s philanthropy group Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
Despite the SEL program being promoted as a program to help children manage emotions, feel and show empathy, and establish positive relationships, the program uses surveys “to peel copious amounts of private information out of school-aged children,” Rachmuth said, adding that the term “equity” itself, often found throughout the program’s documents, is simply a new name for CRT.
According to WestEd.org, CASEL’s core SEL competencies reflect issues of equity.
‘The Contents of One’s Mind’
Methods intrinsic to SEL programming are surveys, Rachmuth said, with the goals of the survey being identity breakdown using psychiatric intervention, data mining, and a push for a genderless society for the purpose of dismantling the patriarchy, which is often perceived as the core protector of capitalism that a covert infiltration would seek to abolish.
Rachmuth and her team have gathered multiple surveys from different school districts in North Carolina asking K-12 students questions about incriminating behaviors and private thoughts.
From a kindergarten class in one county, she showed a diagram called “The Genderbread Person” that displays a traditional gingerbread man being used to teach kindergarten children about sexual attraction between same-sex genders.
In a 7th-grade SEL survey in an English class, there is the prompt: “Questions I have about my face, hair, chest, and body are,” leaving lines open for answering.
“Social-emotional learning makes it legal for a man to ask children questions like this in an open classroom for discussion,” Rachmuth said. “We have a literacy crisis. We need to be teaching reading and writing.”
Another prompt in the survey Rachmuth showed is, “What if I don’t like my legs, breasts, or lips?”
She displayed a survey for high school-aged children asking if they had “ever bought or sold drugs in school.”
“Here children are being asked to implicate themselves in a felony without a lawyer present,” she said.
From another district, she obtained a survey asking 6th through 12th-grade students about their gender identity, if they identify as transgender, and what their sexual orientation is.
One survey asked if students supported the LGBT community.
“This is pretty dangerous because if a 15-year-old doesn’t answer the right way, they will be canceled,” Rachmuth said. “You want to talk about driving a kid to suicide, try outing them when they are gay before they are ready. The same applies to canceling a student if they don’t have the right ‘think.’”
Another survey asked several questions about sexual history, such as how old the student was when they had sex for the first time.
Questions such as how long the student is home alone, Rachmuth said, are troubling, because it could be a trigger for social services to remove children.
“So basically, after grooming children asking these sexual questions, they ask, are you home alone,” Rachmuth said.
For Rachmuth, the question comes down to funding.
While some Senate Republicans have spoken against Lee ordering state financial executives to fund the plan, those same Republicans have taken donations from Jim Goodnight, founder and CEO of the SAS, a global analytic software company in North Carolina, who contributed $250,000 into the report.
Despite the issues of SEL and CRT being portrayed as what Gov. Roy Cooper described as conservative “conspiracy-laden politics,” Rachmuth has proposed that it has been Republicans, in addition to Democrats, who have ushered these curriculums into North Carolina.
“For me, the writing on the wall is that Republicans will speak eloquently and do nothing,” Rachmuth said.
Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
