Our children are our most precious resource, our most prominent responsibility and the future of this society, if we fail them … We fail America and humanity itself. COMMON CORE is playing a major role in that failure!

We have allowed corporatist entities of all persuasions, as well as corrupt and complicit government officials to hijack the most vital aspect of said responsibility … their education.

No longer is free thinking rewarded as a mechanism of success, now being vanilla, blending in, or being a part of the herd is promoted. The intent is to facilitate through Common Core a generation of followers not leaders who would in turn NOT challenge the system, but mindlessly conform to and perpetuate the system.

The title itself “Common Core” should immediately set off warning bells, it sounds like something straight out of a Communist handbook. There is nothing common about children other than maybe their age. Children are individuals as much as you and I, each with their own identity, personality, strengths and weaknesses.

The concept of one size fits all education should raise huge red flags! Even if the curriculum is worthy (as you will see below it is anything BUT worthy), we do a serious injustice by forcing every child to conform to the expected norms of average. There are those who would excel, just as there are those who would lag behind. But through this mechanism of forced conformation those who would excel in one subject or another are frustrated and forced into this concept of conformity forever damaging their initiative and drive to excel … settling into a pre-programmed society of passive and obedient citizen consumers.

What we put forth here is a frontal attack on the concept of Common Core, its destruction of the will to excel, its destruction of the concepts of individualism, its destruction of the idea of free thought and self determination, and Its blatant and intentional Dumbing Down of our children to an end that serves a few all powerful oligarchs

The following is an excerpt from the article Common Core – The Last Stop to Globalization written by: Lucille Femine, a TLB Staff Writer.


Common Core has been instituted by corporations, not educators, funded in the millions by Bill Gates, eugenicist, and other corporate giants. What is their purpose? It is to educate all children into being obedient workers who will then be consumers of their products and these globalists will employ any means necessary, no matter how depraved, to achieve their ends. Communism comes in very handy.

People are getting wise; let’s hope more and more states and educators will back out of Common Core and their globalization plans. Children should learn the basics of traditional reading, writing and arithmetic and then figure out themselves what they want to study. They know better than anyone else.


TLB: Below you will find two great videos that continue our self proclaimed attack on Common Core … because anything less than an attack (verbal) IS NOT ENOUGH !!!


Proof Common Core Is Killing Common Sense


My brain hurts enough just reading news stories about common core, so I know it can’t be good for the kids who are mercilessly subjected to it firsthand.

In this assignment, seven-year-old kids in 2nd grade were told that they were wrong if they simply subtracted one number from another to find the correct answer. That’s apparently not considered the “friendly” way to do math. Instead, they were told to add numbers to each number first, then subtract *those* numbers to get the right answer.

Anyone else feel an aneurysm coming on…?

“What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”



TLB: Now lets take this topic up a few pegs into a higher order academia, and listen as those who teach, them who would teach, teaches us …

“Story-Killers: How the Common Core Destroys Minds and Souls”

Terrence O. Moore
Professor of History, Hillsdale College

The Common Core Standards control the testing and curriculum of public schools and a large number of private schools in over forty states in the nation. Sold to the public as a needed reform, the Common Core nationalizes absurdity, superficiality, and political bias in the American classroom. As a result, the great stories of a great nation are at risk, along with the minds and souls of our children.

Terrence O Moore is an assistant professor of history at Hillsdale College. A former Marine with a Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh, he served as the founding principal of a top K-12 classical school in Colorado and advises Hillsdale’s Charter School Initiative, providing assistance with the formation of classical charter schools across the country. Dr. Moore is the author of The Perfect Game and The Story-Killers: A Common Sense Case Against the Common Core.
