Jen Mitchell Admits CCPS Is A Dictatorship

 

Last week, we saw the Naples Daily News announce the candidacy of Jen Mitchell for Collier County School Board by hard-hitting Education Reporter, excuse me, CCPS propagandist, Annika Hammerschlag.

In typical Hammerschlag and Naples Daily News fashion, which was documented during the 2016 School Board election cycle of coordinating with Superintendent Kamela Patton to promote her hand-picked candidates of Stephanie Lucarelli and Erick Carter, the so called paper of record in Naples, dusted off their glowing articles (propaganda) of Lucarelli and Carter, then merely inserted the name Mitchell for the 2018 election cycle.

Of course, just like Lucarelli and Carter, Mitchell voiced frustration over Collier’s local education groups like Parents ROCK, Southwest Florida Citizens Alliance and Bolduc & Bracci who dare to accurately document Patton’s dismal D-Level and F-Level English Proficiency Scores, where 26% of Shadowlawn Elementary 3rd graders score 3 or better in English Proficiency, yet receive an “A” Grade from the Florida Department of Education. Not to mention, how over 94% of Collier County Elementary Schools cannot score above 80% in 5th Grade English Proficiency. (link attached)

Rather than caring to improve horrific Elementary English Proficiency Scores, which students never recover from prior to High School graduation, Jen Mitchell and the Naples Daily News opined:

“Mitchell voiced frustration over Collier’s vocal education groups who often speak negatively about the school system. It’s unsettling that these groups have ties to sitting School Board members”

“My concern is that, at a minimum, our representation on the board should be rooting for its success, and I don’t feel like that’s happening,”

You see, while School Board member Kelly Lichter has been attacked in a coordinated fashion by the Naples Daily News, Superintendent Patton and local Alt-Left Democrat ACLU front groups like the Coalition for Quality Public Education for stewarding Mason Classical Academy to a 92% 5th Grade English Proficiency Score, easily the top score throughout CCPS Elementary Schools, Jen Mitchell does not want to work with Kelly Lichter to bring Mason Classical Academy’s success to all CCPS schools, but would rather join current School Board puppets Lucarelli, Carter and Roy Terry to sing “kumbaya” and “collaborate” on continuing Superintendent Patton’s dreadful curriculum, over-testing and initiative to transform teachers into facilitators of digital classrooms.

Jen Mitchell’s website also let the cat out of the bag as to how CCPS is not governed by your elected Board Members, but rather, by an unelected triumvirate of Superintendent Patton, the Naples Daily News and their “corporate partners”.  Specifically, when Jen Mitchell described her prior work with CCPS, she stated,

“As a result of these activities, I was asked to participate in the Champions for Learning Connect Now Project, a series of workshops that led to what became the CCPS Strategic Plan.  I was proud to be among the parents, educators and community members selected to develop the Connect Now vision for our school district and path toward implementing it.”

In other words, Jen Mitchell was hand picked by Superintendent Patton and Champions for Learning, where the Board Chair is Bill Barker, Publisher of the Naples Daily News, to develop CCPS Policy as part of an self-anointed “council” or “committee” reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, where the English translation of “Soviet” means “council” or “committee”.

And now, Jen Mitchell wants to join current Politburo members Roy Terry, Erick Carter and Stephanie Lucarelli to ensure a rubber stamp majority vote in the affirmative on all future Dictatorial whims of Dear Leader Kamela Patton and the Naples Daily News.

I’m sure a PAC funded by Alt-Left Democrats to the tune of $250,000 is being formed, and glowing articles about her “collaboration” are being approved by Bill Barker as we write.

Collier County Has Lost Its Mind on Affordable Housing

Collier County Commissioners have voted to reinstitute an affordable housing trust fund.  It would have a “linkage fee” that developers have to pay, theoretically “linking” their project to the work force that  must serve it.

Commercial-retail-industrial developers would have to pay $1 per square foot toward the fund.

Residential developers would have to either donate land, construct 15% of their project on-site as affordable housing, or donate a whopping $200,000 per unit for those 15% of units toward the trust fund!

This is utter insanity.  These theoretician-bureaucrats have no clue about business, pro forma budgeting, or profit margins.  They see developers as a cow they can just milk for their benefit, failing to recognize when the milk cow has become a beef cow for slaughter.

This is also an indirect tax on the people of Collier County, including business owners and customers who will be paying higher prices for goods and services to cover the increased rent businesses pay for a Landlord’s pass-through cost of the trust fund surcharge.

Collier County has lost its mind on affordable housing.  Government intervention in the marketplace typically backfires and leads to further distortions.  Left alone, the marketplace will adjust on its own.

There has been lots of discussion of an affordable housing problem – but where is the study backed by meaningful data showing the need?  Doesn’t that come first?

E-mail to Superintendent Patton: “Why Do You Propagandize School Test Scores?”

On August 21, the School District published an Assessment Brief regarding its Cambridge advanced testing scores for students.  (click here).   The Assessment Brief “highlights” those subjects where district students performed well, but fails to mention the low scoring subjects.  In follow-up, Steve Bracci sent the below e-mail to Superintendent Patton:

From: Steve Bracci

Cc: ‘Roy Terry’, ‘Erika Donalds’, ‘Kelly Lichter’, ‘Erick Carter’, ‘Stephanie Lucarelli’
Subject: Cambridge test results

Superintendent Patton –

Why do you repeatedly insist on propagandizing the district’s scores?  The Cambridge AICE scores you posted on the website are an example.  You cherry-picked the “highlights” showing the top scoring categories, but overlook the categories where the District does poorly. (25% in Biology, 36% in History, 29% in English literature, 0% in Chemistry, 0% in Math).

In fact, in each of these non-highlighted categories, the district’s test performance dramatically decreased year-over-year in these core subjects:

Biology dropped from 33% to 25%
History dropped from 38% to 36%
English Lit dropped from 56% to 29%
Chemistry dropped from 30% to 0 %
Math dropped from 29% to 0%

http://www.collierschools.com/cms/lib/FL01903251/Centricity/Domain/4/2017AICEAssessmentBriefing.pdf

By your strategy, it seems you think the public is either (i) too stupid or (ii) too lazy to read the data that follows the highlights.  It also seems you are more interested in “marketing” the school district than real classroom success.  Sad!

Sincerely, Steve Bracci

This is posted not to criticize the performance of students or teachers, but rather, to demonstrate the dysfunctionality of a behemoth school district administration that is so hell-bent on aggrandizing its own image, that it distorts the truth about school-based performance.  If Superintendent Patton feels the need to twist statistics to show constant success, without recognizing areas where there needs to be improvement, then Patton is the problem, not the solution.

Those who support the Superintendent without calling out such falsehoods are engaging in politics of an unhealthy sort, with an agenda of protecting the Superintendent at all costs, at the sake of student performance.

Suggestion to Constitutional Review Commission and Legislature: Define “Free Public Schools” and Limit School Board “Home Rule” Authority To That Definition

Every 20 years, Florida convenes a Constitutional Review Commission to consider possible changes to Florida’s Constitution, and to then place those proposed revisions on the ballot.  The Constitutional Review Commission convened this year, in anticipation of the November 2018 ballot.


Preamble to the Florida Constitution of 1865

Many of us have observed first-hand the overreach of our local school boards beyond classroom “reading, writing and arithmetic” into collectivist “collaborative partnerships” with various non-government community organizations. This is classic mission drift that surely goes beyond our state’s constitutional framers when they drafted Art. IX, Section 4(b) which provides that the School Boards shall operate the “free public schools.”

The problem is, “free public schools” has never been defined, and to this day the Florida Attorney General and Florida courts struggle to understand the outer limits of that term.

Adding to this problem, in 1983 the Florida Legislature gave school boards “home rule power,” telling them in essence that they can do whatever they want — without any check from other branches of government — unless the Legislature has “expressly prohibited” the school board from acting on that subject.  Here is an excerpt from an  Florida Attorney General advisory opinion drafted shortly after the 1983 legislative change:

Section 230.03(2), F.S. [now 1001.32(2), F.S.], currently provides: “SCHOOL BOARD.–In accordance with the provisions of s. 4(b) of Art. IX of the State Constitution, district school boards shall operate, control, and supervise all free public schools in their respective districts and may exercise any power except as expressly prohibited by the State Constitution or general law.” (e.s.) Section 7 of Ch. 83-324, Laws of Florida, deleted the language contained in s. 230.03(2), F.S. 1981, which stated that district school boards may exercise any power “for educational purposes except as otherwise provided by the State Constitution or law” and added the language “except as expressly prohibited by the State Constitution or general law.” (e.s.) Since the issuance of AGO 83-72, it has been the position of this office that the 1983 amendment conferred on school boards a variant of “home-rule power,” and that a district school board may exercise any power for school purposes in the operation, control, and supervision of the free public schools in its district except as expressly prohibited by the State Constitution or general law. See also AGO’s 84-95, 84-58.

Most people will agree that local control of schools is a good thing, and thus the concept of “home rule power” is also a good thing.  But most people would also agree that our public school system should focus on education in the classroom, plus traditional extracurricular activities such as athletics, music, academic clubs, etc.  Schools go beyond their mission when they delve into (i) instructing parents on how to be better parents; (ii) providing welfare to students; (iii) providing affordable housing; and (iv) “collectively collaborating” with local non-profits on pet projects such as “Future Ready Collier” and NCH’s self-serving special interest “Blue Zones Project.”  These all take the eye off of the ball of teaching in the classroom; they are expensive; and they create a bloated school district administration that becomes an out-of-control behemoth.

As Joe Whitehead analogized on his 8/19/2017 radio show, the behemoth bureaucratic administration becomes like “Hal 9000,” the computer in 2001: a Space Odyssey, which takes on a life of its own and serves itself rather than the people it was originally designed to serve.

So here’s a simple proposed solution to this mission drift:

1. Constitutionally define “free public schools” under Art. IX, Section 4(b) of the Florida Constitution.  Limit it to teaching students within the four corners of the school district campus, with focus on reading, writing, arithmetic, science, fact-based American history, and traditional extracurriculars.

2. Legislatively amend Fla. Stat. Section 1001.32(2) to allow school board home rule power only within the constitutional definition of “free public schools.”  The amended statute might read as:

(2) DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD.—In accordance with the provisions of s. 4(b) of Art. IX of the State Constitution, district school boards shall operate, control, and supervise all free public schools, as constitutionally defined, in their respective districts and may exercise any power except as expressly prohibited by the State Constitution or general law.  For actions or matters beyond the scope of free public schools, district school boards may not exercise any power except as expressly authorized by the Legislature.

(changes in bold).

3.  Legislatively define the statutory terms “educational purposes” and “school purposes” in alignment with the new definition of “free public schools.”

4.  Constitutionally (or at least legislatively) prohibit school boards from engaging in “for profit” activities such as after-school child care, or affordable housing.  All school board programs should be “revenue neutral,” with the school board required to provide studies containing sufficient data to demonstrate fiscal neutrality.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATION BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVE BECOME TOO BIG, BUDGETS TOO LARGE AND DIFFICULT TO TRACK, AND SUPERINTENDENTS HAVE TOO MUCH ABILITY TO CONSOLIDATE POWER, NOT JUST WITHIN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, BUT IN THE COMMUNITY:

5.  Amend Fla. Const. Art. IX, Sect. 4(a) to define a “school district” as something smaller than the region of each county.  That may have been appropriate a century ago when Florida’s population was smaller and more spread out, but it now consolidates too much power in a centralized school district administration.  (Take, for instance Collier’s  annual budget which now for the first time exceeds $1 billion).  Alternatively, keep the “county” geographical limits for a school district, but break it into elementary, middle and high school subdistricts, each with a separate superintendent and budget.  Some may counter that this will lead to fiscal inefficiencies in areas such as busing, athletic fields, etc., but this can be resolved legislatively by allowing inter-district sharing of such resources and services.

6.  Change F.S. 1010.33 to state that each School Board “shall” (not just “are authorized to”) have its own independent certified public accountant to perform its own annual financial and performance audit.  In other words, take this out of the hands of the superintendents, who may otherwise too easily control these audits. 

6.  Provide term limits for superintendents.  They have too much ability to “roll up” individual power by their connections within the community, serving themselves more than the students.  Also provide a prohibition on superintendents lobbying school boards once they depart.

7.  Recognize that individual school board members were elected by the people as their policy-making representatives.  Enact legislation authorizing any school board member to add a policy item to the school board agenda, so that the rights of the “minority” board group may be heard and not subverted by all-powerful superintendents and the “majority” board members they all-too-often control.


Constitutional Review Commission member / Collier School Board member Erika Donalds

We in Collier County are fortunate to have one of our school board members, Erika Donalds, serving on the Constitutional Review Commission.  In fact, Ms. Donalds chairs the “local government” panel and serves on the “education” panel , which includes Article IX of the Constitution which needs amending as mentioned herein.  Ms. Donalds would do well to consider the foregoing constitutional proposals, with local state representatives Byron Donalds and Bob Rommel leading on the legislative issues.**

Bob Harden Interviews David Bolduc on “The Bob Harden Show”

Local conservative commentator Bob Harden interviewed B&B’s David Bolduc about the link between the flawed American History lessons our children receive in today’s public schools, and the present cry for the removal of Civil War statues.

Says Bob:

“Why are we taking sides on this anyhow?  It really happened and we can learn from it.  But we have to understand it first, and that’s basically what’s wrong with our schools right now – not necessarily on the science side (although I do worry about that), but mainly on the history and social studies, kids are not getting good information.”

Charlottesville – Brought To You By George Soros – Part 2

George Orwell (real name Eric Blair) was educated at Eton College, a well-known deep state education center – it has produced 19 British Prime Ministers including David Cameron. While at Eton, Orwell was introduced to the Fabian Society. As will be outlined, the Fabian Society has been instrumental in the global Communist agenda, in much the same manner, it was the force behind the creation of the Socialist Labor Party in Britain, where the current leader of the Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn, appointed a Communist to help lead his election campaign, telling the stunned electorate that Andrew Murray, the Stalin apologist and defender of North Korea, is a “member of the Labor Party like me”, despite the fact the man he appointed was a member of either the Communist Party of Britain or the Communist Party of Great Britain for over 40 years.

The name Fabian is said to come from ‘Fabius’, the Roman general, Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus. Fabius carefully planned strategies to wear down his enemies over a long period of time avoiding battles that could prove decisive either way. And of course, this is exactly how the global agenda has been planned out by George Soros, who studied at the Fabian London School of Economics, and other “New World Order” supporters calling for “Change”, “Social Justice” and “Climate Justice”.

Fittingly, the Fabian society has a wolf in sheep clothing for its logo. How appropriate, as George Soros and Hillary Clinton hide behind their media contrived benevolent Charities, Foundations and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) to fund their destabilization programs designed to slowly concentrate power in the hands of the state, following the Fabian Communist blue-print to a tee.

Many speculate that George Orwell became disillusioned with the Fabian Society, and 1984 was written not as fiction, but as an expose of the knowledge of the Soros, Fabian agenda. In 1984, Orwell describes the elite’s greatest weapon, cognitive dissonance, to a tee. He calls it, rather appropriately, doublethink – this is exactly how the majority of humanity has remained in servitude for thousands of years. Most people actually fight to protect their own belief system, dismissing information that challenges it without further investigation. These are the people, sadly tens of millions, with their heads in the sand.

Which leads us to Charlottesville, and the Democrat-led, often violent, push to tear down every statue dedicated to anyone who served in the Confederate Army, or for that matter, any southerner who lived before 1860. You see, due to Fabians like George Soros controlling our Public School History Textbooks for the past 100 years, combined with a Soros and Clinton compliant media, the majority of America has grown up believing the Civil War was fought to end slavery and believing that the South seceded following the election of Abraham Lincoln because he was going to end slavery despite the fact anyone can read the following transcript of the fourth Lincoln-Douglas Debate in Charleston, Illinois, where Abraham Lincoln stated:

“While I was at the hotel to-day, an elderly gentleman called upon me to know whether I was really in favor of producing a perfect equality between the Negroes and white people. [Great Laughter.] While I had not proposed to myself on this occasion to say much on that subject, yet as the question was asked me I thought I would occupy perhaps five minutes in saying something in regard to it. I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]-that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything. I do not understand that because I do not want a Negro woman for a slave I must necessarily want her for a wife. [Cheers and laughter.] My understanding is that I can just let her alone. I am now in my fiftieth year, and I certainly never have had a black woman for either a slave or a wife. So it seems to me quite possible for us to get along without making either slaves or wives of Negroes. I will add to this that I have never seen, to my knowledge, a man, woman or child who was in favor of producing a perfect equality, social and political, between Negroes and white men. … I will also add to the remarks I have made (for I am not going to enter at large upon this subject,) that I have never had the least apprehension that I or my friends would marry Negroes if there was no law to keep them from it, [laughter] but as Judge Douglas and his friends seem to be in great apprehension that they might, if there were no law to keep them from it, [roars of laughter] I give him the most solemn pledge that I will to the very last stand by the law of this State, which forbids the marrying of white people with Negroes. [Continued laughter and applause.]”

In other words, control of our history textbooks by Fabian Socialists and Democrats like Soros, Clinton, Shumer and Wassermann-Schultz  has created decades of “low information” protesters who believe the false premise the Civil War was only about ending slavery, and that every Confederate statue in the South needs to be torn down because every Northern soldier was an Abolitionist, and every Confederate soldier was a racist KKK defender of slavery, when Abraham Lincoln clearly stated:

I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

Statues are symbols, the meaning of which varies depending on who you ask.  Lincoln’s revealing quote calls into doubt those who say in lockstep that the Northerners were strict abolitionists and every Southern general was a racist.

As a nation, are we going to continue with George Soros’s doublethink, and Socialist control of History Textbooks to justify the destruction of our nation’s past? Or, are we going to end our cognitive dissidence, and expose George Soros, Hillary Clinton, the dishonest Media and fake Republicans like Marco Rubio, and Collier County School Board members Roy Terry, Erick Carter and Stephanie Lucarelli as the Fabian Socialist wolves in sheep’s clothing they actually are?

Beware the False Reporting on Trump, Charlottesville, and the Need to Erase History By Destroying Statues

The tag line and mission of Bolduc and Bracci is to “Level a Tilted Playing Field.”  This references the well-known fact that there is an extreme leftist-liberal bias in the media.  Presently, the media complex is working in lockstep to destroy President Trump, and is using Charlottesville as its new front.  Through false reporting, the media is working to paint Trump as a white racist bigot, despite his decades-long career in the public eye showing he is anything but that.

It is difficult to put this issue into words, but writer Dov Fischer, self-described as a “Jew from the North,” does a good job of stepping back and putting today’s issues into perspective, discussing the truth about what Trump actually said in totality, and providing real history references.   His article at Spectator.org  is titled “And Yet President Trump, In His Classically Inartful Way, Was Absolutely Right.”

Fischer on Trump’s statements:

Is Our County’s Worship of Superintendent Kam Patton Enabling a Culture of Teacher-Student Sex Abuse?

In yet another Naples Daily News hero-worship editorial fawning over Superintendent Kamela Patton, today’s back-to-school piece is titled  “A Year Tough to Top as Collier Schools Open Wednesday.”

The editorial references the return of Collier County’s students and teachers “for a  year of challenges perhaps no greater than ‘Can you top this?'”  In typical fashion, the NDN editors regurgitate Patton’s talking points about the pyrrhic “A” grade the school district received this year (despite a myriad of “D” schools and 29% third grade reading proficiency at one school).

The editors then cite areas where the School District still needs improvement citing “teacher retention and housing,” convincing the Legislature to become “more supportive of traditional public education,” and — given that Patton’s annual budget has now crashed through the $1 billion glass ceiling — suggesting the “hire of an independent financial analyst for a risk assessment.”**

**NOTE:  the editors are covering for Patton here.  The “risk assessment” is Patton’s proposed watered-down review, so she can avoid the more intense “internal audit” which School Board members Donalds and Lichter propose.

Notably missing from the NDN’s list of proposed public school improvements is to cut down on the number of school teachers allegedly having sexual relationships with the students. 

Hey, NDN editorial board — where’s that proposed improvement?  How about some giving “kicks” to the School District?

  1. For the second time in the past 6 months, one of Patton’s high school teachers is alleged to have had sexual intercourse with a student.  The first time, it apparently got swept under the rug by the School District’s own investigation and the Collier County Sheriff Department.  As reported by the NDN in an article titled “Collier Teacher Reinstated After Investigation Into Sexual Allegations“, despite a written statement by the former student confirming the sexual relationship and allegations that one of Patton’s administrators interfered in the investigation, Kevin Rambosk’s Sheriff’s department refused to press charges.

When brought up as a topic at a school board meeting in July, Kam Patton scolded board member Kelly Lichter for her inquiry  in a “how dare you not trust me” manner, then reassured board members that Patton already had a half-hour late night call with her good pal Sheriff Kevin Rambosk to address the “article.”  As to the content of that discussion with Rambosk, Patton did not say.

Hey Kam – why in the world is the top school administrator speaking to the top sheriff??  Isn’t this like Bill Clinton talking to Loretta Lynch on the tarmac?  Why are the two “top dogs” talking, rather than letting the detectives and other trained professionals do their job?  Were you trying to get to the bottom of it with Rambosk — or were you instead chastising Rambosk for not having more control over his underlings, especially that pesky detective who gave your administration a black eye by calling out how one of your principals “interfered” in the investigation?

The Sheriff’s department refused to press charges in the first reported case despite a sworn statement from the alleged victim.  To little surprise, the School District’s own investigation “found no evidence to prove [the] student’s statements that she had engaged in sexual activity with the teacher,” and guess what — THE TEACHER IS BACK AT WORK AT THE HIGH SCHOOL!

Now, this week, it is reported that a male Naples High School teacher had sexual intercourse with a 16 year-old female student, and had been “sexting” at least two female students. (click for link). He faces “two felony charges of sexual assault of a victim 16 or 17 years old.”  According to the news report, the teacher has admitted to having sexual intercourse with the student.  BUT INSTEAD OF FIRING THE TEACHER, THE PATTON ADMINISTRATION JUST REASSIGNED HIM TO WORK AT THE MLK ADMINISTRATION BUILDING!

Keep in mind, this isn’t a case where someone is “innocent until proven guilty.”  The news report is that this teacher admitted to the sex acts.  AND PATTON HASN’T FIRED HIM?  What enabling message does that send to the next teacher?  “The District’s got your back?”

Given the School District’s obsession with social media, where is the District’s accountability for the fact that this teacher reportedly used Instagram and Snapchat to lure his alleged victims?  Where is the editorial board’s critique of the District’s excessive focus on social media, Bring Your Own Device, etc.?  Just look at the District’s web page — it’s not a government information page, it’s marketing and self-promotion – encouraging educators to waste time “tweeting” rather than teaching.

If Patton’s administration cannot police its own teachers operating within the public school buildings, how does the District plan to ensure the safety of its students involved in all of the community outreach, such as through “Future Ready Collier” which is a so-called “collaborative” effort whereby the District is strategically pushing our students out into the workplace where they will be mentored by the unvetted public?  (Future Ready Collier will “Provide community-based internships for 100% of career academy and other interested students.“)  At the August school board meeting when board member Kelly Lichter asked Patton about any school board policy on Future Ready Collier designed to ensure the safety of students being mentored at internships, administrator Peggy Aune struggled to provide any meaningful response identifying any such policies or procedures.

Where is the NDN editorial board on this topic?  Instead of asking such questions, the editors encourage this type “collective collaboration” hook, line and sinker — because guys like their own NDN President/Publisher William “Bill” Barker are a part of this educational mission drift.***

***Barker is chair-elect of the Naples Chamber, and board member of Champions for Learning — both part of Future Ready Collier.

It’s time for change at top – time to bring in someone who will focus on the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, and time to focus on the four corners of school district’s operations, and student safety, without all of the distracting outreach.  And frankly, it’s time for a real news source other than the highly conflicted, collectivist agenda-driven Naples Daily News.  (Enter Bolduc and Bracci – so Get the Word Out.)

So where is the NDN editorial board talking about school district “improvements” in the area of protecting students from teacher-predators?  Kam Patton loves to compare today’s district scores and rankings to those of 6 years ago when she first arrived.  Click here for example.

If Patton likes to compare the District’s performance today to six years ago when she first arrived, then how about comparing the number of sexual assaults by teachers on students today, as opposed to 2011? Is Patton’s Communications Department tracking that statistic?


Superintendent Kamela Patton

Why is this relevant?  Because Patton came from the Miami-Dade School District where she was a former assistant Superintendent.  Patton worked there for 24 years.  This is where Patton learned on the job.  It is coming to light that Miami-Dade may be a breeding ground for teacher sexual assaults on students due to an enabling administration that had turned a blind eye during the period of Patton’s  tenure.  In a recently filed lawsuit, it is alleged that a Miami-Dade teacher repeatedly sexually assaulted a student.  This teacher had been accused of other incidents dating back to 2004, and yet the Miami-Dade administration  simply reassigned the teacher from one school to another, without being called to real account.

Here is a link to that lawsuit  (Warning to readers, there is a lot in it):

Complaint:  Jane Doe v. Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Aug. 2, 2017

Here is a link to two other news reports about that lawsuit and other recent teacher-student sex incidents in Miami-Dade:

“Are Miami-Dade Schools a Hunting Ground and Refuge for Sexual Predators?”, Dr. Rich Swier, August 9, 2017

“‘Jason’s Girls:’ Palmetto High Teacher Accused of String of Sexually Charged Relationships,” Miami Herald, August 3, 2017

Are the recent reports of Collier County teacher sex acts with students a harbinger of things to come here in our school district, similar what is coming to light in Miami-Dade?

Are recent events here in Collier County the result of lax enforcement by Patton and her administration?

Do they result from local leadership that protects the image of Patton and her administration at all costs, because Patton loves to “partner” with them and provide them with access to our school district?

Do they result from a local newspaper and sheriff’s department which Patton has strategically cozied up to over the past years, currying favor with them so that they will not do their jobs and hold Patton’s school district to account, either by news reporting or proper law enforcement?

Perhaps the NDN editors and others in our community also have some responsibility for enabling these incidents.  Perhaps their worship of Superintendent Kamela Patton is coming home to roost.

 

 

Charlottesville – Brought To You By George Soros

Author’s note: all blue font links to source documentation

After reading this latest post to Bolduc & Bracci, I highly recommend everyone go to your favorite brick and mortar, or online bookstore, and order the following three classic books by Historian Antony C. Sutton:

  1. Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution
  2. Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler
  3. Wall Street and FDR

In these three classics, Mr. Sutton’s scholarship, which has gone unrefuted for close to 50 years, thoroughly documents how elite global banking and financial families such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Schiffs, Warburgs, and now Soros, have used the time tested blueprint of “Problem, Reaction, Solution” to consolidate financial and social control over entire nations.

So what is “Problem, Reaction, Solution”, and how does it relate to Charlottesville?

In a nutshell, it can be defined in three stages:

Stage 1 – Create the problem – Bomb the Maine in Havana, Gulf of Tonkin in Vietnam, or create an economic crisis via Central Bank manipulation of currency and debt…..think Wiemar Republic, the 2008 Mortgage Crisis and the Great Depression.

Stage 2 – Through the elite bankers bought-and-paid-for Mainstream Media, repeat the version of the problem Wall Street wants the public to buy hook, line and sinker….Spanish Cuban’s bombed the Maine, Vietnam attacked our Navy in the Gulf of Tonkin, Germans printed too much money, subprime borrowers extended themselves too far. Then the people react with outrage and fear without looking for the truth themselves, and say, this needs to change, “what is the government going to do about it”!

Stage 3 – Through the elite bankers bought-and-paid-for politicians, offer the solution to the problems the elite bankers have covertly created in the first place.

So, let’s test out the theory of “Problem, Reaction, Solution” on Ukraine a few years ago.

Stage 1 – Victoria Nuland of the US State Department announces in 2013, the United States has partnered with ExxonMobil and Chevron (Rockefeller Standard Oil Companies) to spend $5 billion to subvert the democratically elected government of Ukraine because they are evil. Riots and shootings of Police soon follow in 2014.

Stage 2 – The Media repeats over, and over again, that peaceful protesters were shot merely for calling for Ukraine’s freedom. When in actuality, Nuland was caught on the phone admitting she was going to install Central Banker “Yats” to run Ukraine even before the so called protests started. Then, another leaked phone conversation confirmed the Kiev Snipers were hired by the so called “protesters” flush with $5 billion of your tax dollars.

Stage 3 – Psychotic US politicians led by John McCain, meet with “freedom fighters in Kiev” calling for Vladimir Putin to stop messing with Ukraine’s Democracy, when these “freedom fighters” turn out to be blood-thirsty Neo-Nazis, looking to impose authoritarian social and economic control over the people of Ukraine.

In other words, the US Government’s solution to the Ukrainian protests created by the US Government, and the shooting of Police Officers funded by the US Government, is to vote in an authoritarian Socialist Neo-Nazi Government endorsed and funded by John McCain and the US Government.

Now for Charlottesville…….

Stage 1 – Unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros funds Neo-Nazis on one side, to clash with his funded Neo-Communists on the other side.

Stage 2 – The bought-and-paid-for Mainstream Media only blames the George Soros funded Neo-Nazi’s for the violence while lumping in all Libertarians, Conservative Republicans and Constitutionalists as “Alt-Right” KKK Neo-Nazis.

Stage 3 –  Bought-and-paid-for Politicians like John McCain, Chuck Shumer, Nancy Pelosi deem all President Trump supporting Libertarians, Conservative Republicans and Constitutionalists as “Alt-Right” KKK Nazis who need to have their free speech shut down, and the Bill of Rights suspended in the name of national unity, national love and national peace.

Que up the Bono songs and tambourines while the Constitution dies a silent death.

 

 

 

Climate of Corruption

When Al Gore, the United Nations, and the rest of the Religion (Cult?) of Global Warming claimed without one peer-reviewed paper published in a scholarly journal that humans are bad for the future of our planet, anyone with a IQ above room temperature rightly called these people out as modern day Snake Oil Salesmen…..or Salesmyn according to Facebook’s 57 genders.

However, now that this same Religion (Cult) of Carbon Dioxide Fascists have focused their attack to claim dogs and cats are harmful to the planet, Bolduc & Bracci have to drawn the line between insanity, and just plain Maxine Waters level nuts.

Specifically, per the linked article,  UCLA professor Gregory S. Okin found that meat-eating dogs and cats create the equivalent of 64 million tons of carbon dioxide per year based on the energy consumption required to produce their food, so perhaps we should transition from dogs and cats to ferrets and hamsters.

Which begs the question, is this the same amount of carbon dioxide used by Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Nancy Pelosi and Bill Gates flying the globe on their private jets to receive awards from each other? Or, is it the same level of carbon dioxide used by Bill Clinton and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein flying back and forth between Epstein’s private island, known as Orgy Island, on his private jet, known as The Lolita Express?

While Collier County Schools fills our children’s textbooks with Climate Change Science (Cult), the following are a few links to quacks at unheard of schools like MIT, Harvard and Princeton which prove believing in Man Made Climate Change is like believing in Voodoo.

  1. MIT Climate Scientist Richard Lindzen
  2. Meteorologist Joe Bastardi
  3. More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming.

We wonder when the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and Naples Daily News will award Collier Schools Superintendent Kamela Patton with the Golden Gore Award for her relentless promotion of unproven Voodoo?

You know, the demonetization of an essential trace gas, key to the life cycle of our planet, which somehow traps in earth’s heat while comprising 0.04% of our atmosphere.

Jim Jones would be proud, and he has some Kool-Aid to cool your mouth from Al Gore’s heat.
