Is the NAEP Really Making a Difference or Cushy Job and Engineered Social Scam?

Why is the NAEP funding Educational Research Grants?
Why does the NAEP use input directly to the site from children across this country? What do they really do with or to the information provided at the NAEP?
What did this quick study WWC Quick Review: Evaluation of the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program Final Report prove for our educational system and our students across the United States of America?

Has Your Child Received 1 of These?

Organizational Chart with a long list of lackeys

Director of IES John Q. Easton

It doesn’t look like Mr. Easton quite completed his tasks at CCSR… hmm?

John Q. Easton – Consortium on Chicago School Research

This area of our site is in the works. Please check back soon! Consortium on Chicago School Research 1313 E. 60th Street, Chicago, IL 60637. P: 773.702.3364
But I am sure he really might have found his niche here:

Maybe not, Mr. Easton doesn’t seem to be an active participant:

NAEP is a very revealing site to visit! Lots of payroll, lots of money flow, lots of lofty thoughts, but not too much in the way of  action, performance or accomplishments.


Blanche Lincoln Serves Up Bologna at Women’s Luncheon

Blanche Lincoln Women’s Luncheon

Blancheforsenate | October 12, 2010

Oh it’s all warm and fuzzy bologna at the luncheon… then she takes off in a private plane at the end of the video. Wonder how green all that traveling is? Wonder what this cost the Arkansas/American Taxpayer? hmm?

Send her elite-ness a message and send her packing. Vote for JOHN BOOZMAN!

When She’s Right, She’s Right! Black Conservatives Blast Al Sharpton Protesters!

Black Conservatives Blast Al Sharpton Protesters in DC 8/28

runawayslavemovie | August 31, 2010

The Runaway Slave movie crews were at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor Rally” and at Al Sharpton’s “Reclaiming the Dream March” on Aug 28th. As the two ideologies clashed in DC, our movie crews were on the scene. In this raw footage, shot near the future MLK memorial site, Black Conservatives leaving the “Restoring Honor” rally encounter Sharpton’s protestors who were holding signs claiming “Tea Party Racism.” This is just one of debates that we captured after the rally had ended.

Barack Obama and Margaret Sanger’s “Negro Project”

jcr4runner | October 12, 2008

Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood’s so-called “Negro Project” is alive and well as the most pro-abortion candidate in American history promises to not only protect Roe v. Wade but to use the presidency and his judicial appointments to push an even more radical social agenda.

Barack Obama – “Punished with a baby!”

jcr4runner | October 02, 2008

This is an examination of Barack Obama’s infamous quote in which he said that if his daughters were to get pregnant by “mistake” that he didn’t want them “punished with a baby!”

Obama thinks some babies are “punishments” for “mistakes.”

What a contrast to Sarah Palin who accepted her daughter’s baby and her own Downes Syndrome baby with open loving arms.

Bound4LIFE – Houston, Now Is The Time

Bound4LIFEintl | December 10, 2009

Right now in Houston, TX Planned Parenthood is building the 2nd largest abortion facility in the world. It will be located right in the center of 4 minority neighborhoods – one Black American and the other 3 Hispanic. Now is the time for the minority voice to lead the nation in justice once again.

She’s Right! What a Patriot!

From the Washington Times:

“EDITORIAL: Taxpayer-funded abortions are here

Obamacare opens up the floodgates to horror”

What a Re”Volt”ing Development – Dud or Deathtrap?

What a great advertising gimmick, NOT! A National Tour is necessary?

First Responders Perform Live Extrication on a Chevrolet Volt

chevrolet | August 31, 2010

Watch as a Chevrolet Volt is methodically dismantled at a training exercise for emergency personnel in Chicago and learn about Chevrolet and OnStar’s partnership with the National Fire Prevention Association on electric vehicle training for first responders.

I don’t know about the reader, but I just feel all warm and fuzzy, again, NOT! Hey I say, if Congress and the White House used our taxpayer money for bailing out a manufacturer who designed mobile electric chairs, let them drive these beasts. Lead by example, hug your union buds, show Americans how you really support what you desire to push on “We the People”.

White House, Senators, House Representatives be the first proud owners, give one to each of your wives or husbands, don’t forget your children and grandchildren. Let’s see how you put our money where your mouth is!

The Good Samaritan clause ends in a Volt crash. I mean it could turn into one hell of an electrifying experience~

Oh no… General Motors Considering New Engines for Eco-Friendly Chevy Volt… I wonder why?

Easy on the Environment, Tough on Passengers! – Could be a smoking good slogan!?!

What if it’s raining, what if there’s a short in the system, what if the driver is getting electrocuted, what if the battery breaks open? Inquiring minds want to know.

Seen It All Now, Atheist with Hyprocrisy, Utah Stand Tall

Cross or Not to Cross

Utah should have the right

David Silverman (V.P. and Nat’l Spokesman for American Atheist) is a jerk by his own blog entry yesterday

…This win is particularly sweet, although we are going to get dragged through the mud for this one…

and his performance on Fox News today

at the 4:53 mark
“…an obelisk or plaque…”
at the 7:07 mark
“…This isn’t a fight worth fighting, this isn’t worth something worth going to the Supreme Court for…”

Seems like David has concerns for equalization of religion as a concerned atheist, hmm? Was this suit all about the money? Can not wait until we see him railing the US Transportation Dept for making religious cross symbol intersection signs?

Or ATT for religious cross symbol telephone poles?

Hey why not go after the Red Cross?

What about Blue Cross?

Why not just jail everyone who crosses their fingers?

Heck let’s all atheist the road at the atheistwalk! Is that politically correct enough?

Hey David why don’t you busy yourself finding out why an Iman is being paid with taxpayer money to visit the Middle East? hmm? Oh the hypocrisy! By the way, you may be interested to learn that your obelisk offering is viewed as a phallic symbol, how nice! Is this the message you are sending?


Who Is Sheila Jackson Lee Trying to Tool? Texas Pay Attention!

How much did the Texas taxpayers pay to learn about the “Recovery” that is not happening? Check out this multi-color, tri-fold mailer that was paid for and mailed on the taxpayer dime!


Look who the taxpayers in Texas paid for this:

Do you see it now? Allied Printing Trades Council Washington UNION LABEL. Nice, more money for unions! Haven’t they received enough from the Bogus POTUS?

According to Stimulus Watch 2.8 in Sheila Jackson Lee’s district 18 and most prominent city ~ that listed being Houston ~ we find:

Awards in Houston, Texas

Below are the stimulus contracts, grants, and loans in this city. You can click on an award to read (and add to) its description. You can also discuss the award and vote on whether you are satisfied with it or not. For a more local view, you can drill down to awards in a particular city. Just choose a city from the following list.

The total of cost of all the projects submitted by Houston is $546,322,245.77

Check out this blatant duplication:

Grant Security Enhancement Program $3,920,950 Houston TX 107 0
Grant American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Port Security Grant Program (ARRA PSGP) $3,920,950 Houston TX 107 0

Now there are 23 pages on Stimulus Watch devoted just to Houston and on those pages it shows 592 jobs have been generated, but upon further inspection they are ghost postings. Work/Projects, therefore jobs, have not begun. Where’s the money? Tied up in mailers to generate voter interest?


Who Does Obama Think He’s Fooling? Keep your Eyes on the Prize of Conservative Wins this November!

Obama backs mosque near ground zero, but that won’t protect an infidel so that must mean…

…the truth is here! Isn’t it interesting that, once again, Al JAZEERA, had reported on this too? Ask yourself, why? ALSO NOTE a new Mosque at his former school? hmm?

Intriguing that AL JAZEERA is interested in many aspects of our United States of America, suddenly or purposefully? Are they looking at new digs, in more ways than one? This has never been a Muslim nation!

Everything always comes back to this:

Which makes this all the more transparent:

All roads lead to Mecca for Obama. The Bogus POTUS is among us! Is it for 72 Virgins… Obama Using Taxpayer Money to Fund Overseas Mosques …as he also leads our military into grief? Do you know what’s occurring in New York and New York City?

Somebody thought it was a grand idea to put a Muslim Usurper in the White House. This only makes 9/11 more painful for all Americans. Treason has been and is afoot in these United States of America. Patriots need to clean house with conservative votes this November!
