The letter was sent to congressional education leaders responsible for crafting the bill – House Education Chairman John Kline (R-MN), Ranking Member Robert Scott (D-VA), Senate Education Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA)
In an impressive show of revolt, the six page letter has five pages of signatures from representatives of 180 groups in 45 states. Americans are pushing back against federal intrusion and overreach, the press release
This letter strongly urges suspension of work on this bill “until a new administration is elected that, we hope, will follow the rule of law and the Constitution regarding the proper federal role in education.”
This request is being made because:
“…for a conference report to be acceptable to this President, given the administration’s dangerous record in so many aspects of the ESEA and related statutes and programs, the report would be completely unacceptable to us and our membership – the millions of families, students, and in many cases teachers, such as the majority of those surveyed from Tennessee that oppose implementation of Common Core, of this nation who are affected by these policies.”
…This is a powerful statement from grassroots organizations across the nation that we demand the elimination of federal control over education.”
Please take 2 minutes seconds to call your congressional delegation and tell them to vote NO on the ESEA reauthorization: 202.224.3121.
Tweet the abridged link http://bit.ly/1Lj6uz5 to your congressional members and to tell them to stop ESEA.
As promised in the show, here is the link to Lamar Alexander’s speech promoting the ‘brand new American school’ open for 12 hour days, 7 days a week, year round expanding to 3 month old babies.

TFOT 9-30-15 Today three great guest join in the discussion taking place across this nation on defunding Planned Parenthood after gruesome videos expose the killing of the unborn and peddling their tiny body parts.
Janae Stracke is Communications Director for Concerned Women For America – www.cwfa.org. She sat through the congressional hearing when PPH’s Cecile Richards gave falsly implied the videos were doctored. Janae promoted the website www.getyourcare.org which gives locations of comprehensive full service medical clinics that are approved for Medicaid funding so women will actually have more options for full health care than limited abortion services at PPH. CWA is asking Americans to call 202-224-3121 and call US Senators to vote for HR 3495 Women’s Public Health and Safety Bill which allows state to remove tax dollars from PPH now that it has passed the House.
Center for Medical Progress and see for themselves the atrocities taking place with the help of tax dollars. SBA reports that even if every penny of the group’s $528.4 million in government funding ended tomorrow, the group would retain 59% of its current baseline income. Healthcare options would actually improve for women if Medicaid dollars went to clinics doing comprehensive care.
Chuck Hurley from The FAMiLY Leader www.thefamilyleader.com has joined with state legislators to defund PPH and has turned up the heat with this 57 second video explaining how Iowa tax dollars are being used to fund PPH with the Medicaid state and federal matching funds. Hurley urged Iowans to call Governor Branstad’s office at 515-281-5211 and implore him to stop funding PPH through Medicaid / IA matching dollars.
You’ve been informed, now be encouraged and never be complacent!
It started with one, one girl they found under a bridge in Des Moines headed for certain death in her own words. Since that time Freedom for Youth has served several hundred young adults. Helping them learn healthy lifestyle habits, learn skills and vocations, hold jobs, and, most importantly find true freedom when they learn to live for Christ. The ministry accepts no tax dollars, but instead is saving taxpayers dollars when kids leave dangerous habits that can lead to unemployment, health risks, and living off government aid; and instead turning them into responsible members of society. Plus, in many smaller communities these young adults are the future. Freedom for Youth may actually be saving some of these rural communities by making sure the next generation is productive – giving rather than taking services in the community. FreedomforYouth.org
Join Freedom for Youth at their Oct 13th banquet at the Airport Holiday Inn, 6111 Fleur Drive, Des Moines. 6-8 p.m. Consider hosting a table to see how you can support a ministry that is truly making a difference where you live – right here at home. RSVP to Joyce by Oct 5 at 515-282-4822.
