Iowa Alert – Jonathan Narcisse’s Phantom Threats vs Well… You Be the Judge

What would the average American citizen do, if they were threatened, not just once, but multiple times? Common senseone would make a police reportbut not Iowan Jonathan Narcisse as reported in “School Board Meeting Erupts In Anger“:

“…”I’ve taken the threats seriously. I feel like I’ve taken precautions, upped by life insurance, talked to people about how to deal with it,” Narcisse said.

Strong asked, “Have you taken it to police?”

“I have spoken to police,” Narcisse said.

Des Moines police told KCCI that they have had no reports of any threats on Narcisse…”

Oh those mysterious phantom threats! Wherever did they go, especially since running for governor is a step above the school board!?!


However, irony should not escape anyone viewing statements made by Mr. Jonathan Narcisse on a 912er’s Facebook this very morning. Screen capture

The most transparent or veiled threat as viewed in paragraph three

“…For example when I’ve been asked how you get results in politics I have been very clear – you pull arms out of sockets, you shatter knee caps and at times you ask – open casket or cremation…”

Iowa… You be the judge!

Time for Government Restoration and Reformation to Begin Anew!

From the sound mind of a patriot, whose other pieces of common sense wisdom can be found here: http://jimmymc-dollarsense.blogspot.com/

“Let’s address one issue/problem at the forefront in most of your awareness today and that’s referred to as “illegal aliens” and a real solution to the problem. As we know some States such as Arizona and a few others have challenged the “Federal” government on the basis of State “sovereignty” under the Constitution to pass a law to protect its citizens. They decided to take this course of action due to “lack of support” in actions by, of and thru the “Federal” government to recognize, help and support their problem. Subsequently the “Federal” government has in effect ignored the Constitution and challenged the State of Arizona as to it’s validity and viability. This obviously raises the question of why or what would motivate such an action on the part of the “Federal” government much less at a time both “Federal” and “State governments can ill afford the cost of such actions. Not only are the respective governments broke but apparently so is the “system” of government within Constitutional boundaries.
Simple solution as part of our re-formed government and a foundation to returning to the premise, purpose and intent of Constitutional government:
If in whatever manner any person not recognized as a “legal citizen”, as defined in the sovereignty of “territory of jurisdiction” meaning the “county/parish” of domicile, in violation of the laws have 30 days to vacate the premises peacefully (Bear in mind, they somehow got here so they can somehow get back to where they came from). This with one exception defined as follows: If said person has been in the defined “territory of jurisdiction” for a minimum of 3 years, been a productive/law abiding member in the society/community therein, said person is allowed 5 days to report and register with the County/Parish Clerks office to request a hearing toward becoming a “legal” citizen under the jurisdiction and ruling by and of the County/Parish Judge. In such case, the citizens in the local communities within each County/Parish can present to the Court as witnesses for and to the reason, validity, viability of said person and their immediate family as defined as spouse and any children under 18 years of age.

In summation: There are good people, who can and have worked to improve their lives for themselves and their families without injuring, hurting, harming anyone. They are in many ways a needed backbone in our society as productive members.

In the process of this, we as citizens need to recognize it’s not what you get from government, it’s what you contribute in the form of productivity. Those within our society who only use/take government handouts/benefits are just as costly to any society. That doesn’t mean the aged, handicapped or those in real need. However, the recipients of any government benefits will be decided by, under and thru the same jurisdictional authority within the County/Parish of domicile and NOT on the Federal or State level. We therefore reduce the size of government and in the process put the responsibility and accountability in the hands of the people who know, recognize and live with those who really need, deserve help. In what we save in the cost of government within the size and scope of agencies/departments to effectively and efficiently perform coupled with needed changes to revitalize our economic base we can well afford to take care their needs without reducing or changing the amount thereto.

There are many ways to slice an apple and still enjoy Mom’s apple pie and we will continue to work toward that end with other common sense approaches over what we now know and see as government. Those who enjoy the benefits of big government and government control will oppose this and any other actions that disrupt their position and/or agenda in self interest over the “common good”. This is just one example of the actions we will take in our reformation of government. Spread the word and join in as we proceed to move forward in actions, not words. Rome is burning but we definitely know how to put out the fire!”

It is time for all good citizens to come together and restore our government ~ one step at a time, one vote at a time, one freedom at a time. Tomorrow can’t wait!

A Lose, Lose Situation on Who’s Whose – Sorry FOX!

From the FoxNews.com Speaker’s Lobby page

July 22, 2010 | 6:00 AM ET

Has Obama’s “Race to the Top” Lost its Shine?

President Obama’s $4 billion education initiative to spur school reform has become a veritable piñata as the program heads into its second round. Not only has Congress raided the account to pay for teacher layoffs to be averted, prompting a White House veto threat of the war supplemental to which it’s attached, but there’s a quiet rebellion going on by some in the education community to ditch the program.

Find out how much this program costs by using Fox’s Taxpayer Calculator.

So why has the contest lost some of its shine? According to the ranking member on the House Education and Labor Committee, it’s a loss of confidence in the system.

“Competition is generally a good thing,” says Minnesota Republican Representative John Kline. “The question is fair, whose doing the judging? How’s the point system put together? Let’s face it, in anything like this where you have judges,  whether it’s an Olympic diving competition or something like this, you have some subjectivity. In your state you would like to know what the rules are and want as little subjectivity as possible.”

Minnesota recently joined eight other states in opting out the second round of the contest.

Race to the Top’s aim is to prepare students for a better future. States participate by competing for a federal grant, administered in phases, and fulfilling what the program calls the four assurances: instituting rigorous standards and assessments, recruiting and retaining effective teachers, turning around low-performance schools and establishing data systems to track student achievement and teacher performance.

Phase I winners were announced on March 29th, and the deadline for submitting Phase II applications was June 1st. The winners for this phase will be announced later in September.

The $4.35 billion dollar incentive program was designed by the United States Department of Education and is funded by the ED Recovery Act as part of the American Recovery Act of 2009. It was announced by President Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on July 24, 2009.

The National Education Association, the largest labor union in the U.S. representing teachers and other support personnel, gave the program a vote of “no confidence” earlier this month. Many saw it as a symbolic slam on the Obama administration. The item would eventually pass, but only by a razor-thin margin.

One member at the NEA convention where the resolution was approved actually offered a resolution to call for the ouster of Secretary Duncan, in part because of the program. That resolution was never approved.

Randi Weingarten, president of the American Teachers Union, called the program a mixed bag. “The real issue is that ‘Race to the Top’ in principle would be a good program if we didn’t have the kind of budget shortfalls that we have right now. It’s hard to be innovative and to do new and different things that require time and resources when we’re seeing state after state having devastating budget cuts.”

But that hasn’t stopped several states, 35 of them in fact, plus the district of Columbia, from lining up for a slice of the grant money.

Representative Jared Polis, D-Co., told Fox News, “For every dollar they spend they’re getting reforms all across the country. Reforms that encourage good teachers to stay in teaching. Reforms that intervene in changing schools, removing caps for the number of charter schools. These are all things that are happening nationally because of ‘Race to the Top.'”

Bottom line – has this contest overstayed its welcome, particularly in the face of rising deficits? Or should Congress reinstate funding and add even more money than President Obama is seeking?

Fox News’ Trish Turner contributed to this report.


The glaring offense from above:

“Competition is generally a good thing,” says Minnesota Republican Representative John Kline. “The question is fair, whose doing the judging?”

Why don’t they just ask the Japanese how to educate properly? Their system works. And, if you can’t tell the difference between whose and who’s in a news article about education what sense does any of this make?
