We just spent Thanksgiving thanking God for our freedom. Now, we must defend it!
It is imperative that concerned citizens begin contacting our US Senators on MONDAY, November 27th, to oppose FEPA. And, that we begin now to contact President Trump to veto this legislation if it passes the Senate. FEPA has already passed the House—on a voice vote under suspended rules. Such shenanigans would be truly laughable if they didn’t mark the death of individual freedom by the hands of big data.
What Does the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policy Act (FEPA) do?
FEPA creates a de facto national database on every individual in America through extensive data-linking and data-sharing mandates. Read this important rebuttal to the House Majority’s staff about FEPA.
Who Supports the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policy Act (FEPA)?
Unfortunately, Republicans like Trey Gowdy have joined hands with Democrats on FEPA because it uses language that promotes government transparency. But, data transparency, in our current environment, is designed to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through interoperable data systems—which were streamlined under the Obama administration’s Stimulus Bill to ensure that regions and states follow along with social-justice-aligned policies in education.
FEPA—and Senator Orrin Hatch’s College Transparency Act (CTA)—mark the culmination of efforts made by the United Nation’s Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to shift America into “Evidenced-Based Policy.” The OECD is a world policy organization that worked with the Obama administration on the Race to the Top program to shift America into globally-defined Competency-Based Education. Both FEPA and CTA work hand-in-hand to support a type of Competency-Based Education that undermines religious freedom. The US Labor Department has also been working with the OECD to ensure America’s shift into global Competency-Based Ed. (more info below). Molly Irwin, Chief Evaluation Officer for the US Dept. of Labor, has been working with the OECD to support the US shift into “Evidence-Based Policy.” See below that her slide-share presentation is for “OECD Governance.”
One of the most telling things about FEPA, is who supports it.
One big-name supporter is Obama administration insider, David Medina who is very excited that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) are building upon the Obama administration’s groundwork on FEPA. Medina runs the progressive organization, Results For America, and their recent headline states,
“Results For America Praises Speaker Ryan and Senator Murray for New Legislation to Advance Evidence-Based Policymaking”
Then they say, “This new bipartisan legislation would help build the What Works infrastructure necessary at each federal agency to use evidence and data when making budget, policy, and management decisions”…
“We are particularly pleased that Speaker Ryan and Senator Murray included several recommendations in their legislation that Results for America has promoted over the last several years, including the requirement that each federal agency designate a Chief Evaluation Officer, establish an evaluation policy, and develop evidence-building plans. (emphasis added)
David Medina currently serves as the COO and Co-Founder of Results for America. David previously served in the Obama Administration as First Lady Michelle Obama’s deputy chief of staff and as the Peace Corps’ public engagement director. Throughout his career, David has also served as the US Global Leadership Campaign’s government relations director, US Senator John Edwards’ national political director, the 2004 Democratic National Convention Committee’s deputy CEO, an AFL-CIO legislative representative, the Democratic National Committee’s policy director, and US Senator Carol Moseley-Braun’s legislative assistant.
David has served on the University of Chicago’s Alumni Visiting Committee, Human Rights Campaign, Millennium March on Washington, and Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute national boards of directors. David received his B.A. from the University of Chicago and his M.P.P. from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
Results for America helps states change their policies to “shift resources” to “what works.”
Isn’t “What Works” a Good Thing?
“What Works” means that people’s choices can be directed by the state because their choices have to serve the purposes of the state. Results For America says, “When it comes to so many of our nation’s great social challenges, progress is within our reach. We know more than ever before about what works for young people, their families and communities.”
Hmmm. Do you recall being at any meetings where you asked Results For America to decide “what works” for you and your family—from cradle to grave? Do you recall asking Results For America to REQUIRE government to hold you and your family accountable for pursuing what THEY decide works?
How Can Evidence-Based Policymaking Undercut Christian Values in our Current Big-Data Environment?
David Medina is just one of many globalists working closely with the UN’s Organization for Economic and Cooperative Development (OECD) to implement world-wide “Evidence-Based Policies” to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (which are a threat to Christian liberty).
Jeb Bush’s ExcelinEd is also doing the OECD’s bidding. (Remember that Jeb was the sole Republican presidential candidate that supported and promoted Common Core).
Jeb Bush’s ExcelinEd worked closely with Utah as a pilot-state to implement global Competency-Based Education (Competency-Based Ed where online curriculum, assessments, student information systems and education management systems are interoperable through Common Core’s Common Data Standards).
If you want to know what a threat the OECD is to Christian families and children, read their recent report called Global Competency for an Inclusive World where they say,
“The skills, attitudes and values that shape human behaviour should be rethought, to counter the discriminatory behaviours picked up at school and in the family.”
“All young people should be able to challenge cultural and gender stereotypes, to reflect on the causes and solutions of racial, religious and hate violence and to help create tolerant, integrated societies.”
Then, watch my recent 30-min. presentation at the Agency-Based Education conference in Utah to understand how the Obama administration used Common Core’s Common Education Data Standards to support the OECD’s mission for “Evidence-Based Policy.” It’s entitled, The Battleground for Religious Freedom is in K-12 Assessments: The Powerful Culture War that No One’s Talking About.
If you want to know how desperately the OECD and their partners want this data bill passed, read this important article in The National Pulse entitled, House Leaders Ignore Citizen Concerns and Pass National Database Bill.
Our children and grandchildren deserve to live under freedom’s banner.
TAKE 2 MINUTES RIGHT NOW TO MAKE 2 PHONE CALLS!:
- Call the US Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 twice, asking for each of your Senators in turn. Tell them to OPPOSE the Foundation’s for Evidence-Based Policy Making Act (S. 2046).
- Call President Trump at: Comments: (202) 456-1111 and/or Switchboard: (202) 456-1414. Tell him to VETO the bill if it passes the Senate.
And, remember, that FEPA is supported by another bill sponsored by Utah Senator Orrin Hatch – The College Transparency Act (CTA) (H.R. 2434; S. 1121). This bill must be stopped when it comes up.
Thank you. And, God Bless.
