“It is a known fact that the policies of the government today, whether Republican or Democrat are closer to the 1932 platform of the Communist Party than they are to either of their own party platforms in that critical year.” —Walter Trohan (1903-2003) Chicago Tribune reporter (1929-1972) and bureau chief in Washington, D.C. Source: CHICAGO TRIBUNE, October 5, 1970, (Look at us 81 years later!)

Senator Lamar Alexander has been a thorn in Tennessee’s side since 1979. He is not a conservative Republican. In fact, truth be known, he has sided with Obama over 62% of the time. Right now he is acting as the bagman for his buddy, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, and his great desire to tax the internet and put more small businesses out-of-business.

First though, let’s look at Lamar’s history. He has worked in the private sector for only short periods of time. Lamar was Born in Maryville, Tennessee, which is only 20 minutes from where I live. He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and New York University School of Law.

In 1967, Alexander joined the campaign of Howard Baker, who became the first Tennessee Republican elected to the Senate in four decades. Alexander then accompanied him to Washington.

It was at a Hill staff softball game that he met his wife, Leslee “Honey” Buhler. She was working for Senator John Tower, the man instrumental in getting John McCain elected to the House. In the early years of their marriage, she raised their four children while doing volunteer work, specifically for Planned Parenthood. She was also a member of the board of the Corporation of Public Broadcasting (NPR and PBS).

Alexander worked as a legislative assistant to GOP sellout Senator Howard Baker. In 1982, for no apparent reason, but to go along and get along, then-Republican Senate MAJORITY Leader, and CFR member, Howard Baker, entered into an agreement with the Ku Klux Klansman from West Virginia, (Democrat Senator Robert Byrd). This agreement effectively barred Republicans from pursuing suspected cases of voter fraud without first getting a federal court’s approval. Thus, the reason why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud, and we saw plenty of it in 2012! Baker, who mentored Fred Thompson into politics in 1972, was also part of the “Panama Canal giveaway team” during the administration of President Jimmy Carter, another CFR member. Seems Lamar learned well from his position with Baker.

Remember, Howard Baker’s second wife is Nancy Kassebaum Baker who was instrumental in pushing a Constitutional Convention in the early 80s, which we fought and thankfully defeated. Kassebaum is a moderate-to-liberal Republican who is known for her health care legislation, the Kennedy-Kassebaum Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which was co-sponsored by Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy, well known socialist democrat.

U.S. Secretary for Education Czar, Arne Duncan, delivered the spring Baker Distinguished Lecture at the University of Tennessee last April, 2013. Fully twenty minutes of his speech was lauding Senator Howard Baker and Nancy Kassebaum, both of whom were in the audience. Here is the link to Duncan’s speech, which I wrote about in The Heartless Bureaucracy. My friend, Karen Bracken, described this speech perfectly when she said, “Listening to Duncan speak about education reform was like having needles poked in my eyes.”

Lamar Alexander was also an assistant in the failed Nixon Administration in the late 1960s. In his first campaign for Governor of Tennessee in 1974, his opponent, Congressman Ray Blanton, used the Nixon Watergate scandal, and the President’s ultimate resignation, to defeat Alexander. Because of Blanton’s own scandals, he did not seek re-election, so in 1978, Alexander ran for governor again and defeated Knoxville Democrat Jake Butcher, (of banking scandal fame) serving as the 45th Governor of Tennessee from 1979 to 1987. In 1991, he was nominated by President George H. W. Bush to serve as Secretary of Education, from 1991 to 1993. Alexander ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 1996 and 2000.

He defeated Democratic Congressman Bob Clement to replace outgoing Senator Fred Thompson in 2002, and won reelection in 2008. Alexander announced that he will run for reelection in 2014.

Out of misguided local loyalty, the conservative voters in Tennessee have repeatedly elected homegrown globalists. Among them are prominent United States Senators, Howard Baker, Bill Frist, Fred Thompson, and of course Lamar Alexander.

All four of those Republican senators from Tennessee were members of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations during their tenure in the United States Senate. [Link]

Just what kind of Republican and politician is Lamar Alexander? I think most old-right conservative Tennesseans know, and there’s even a petition circulating to get a true conservative challenger against Lamar in the 2014 election. Let’s look at who is behind putting Lamar in office for the third time as Tennessee’s senior senator.

Senate Race 2014

Alexander announced that his co-chairs would be top statewide officials, Gov. Bill Haslam and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey. In addition, he said, his campaign co-chairs will be the junior senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker, the state speaker Beth Harwell and U.S. Reps. Marsha Blackburn, Chuck Fleischmann, Diane Black, Stephen Fincher and Phil Roe. Rep. Jimmy Duncan Jr., a 13-term congressman, will chair Alexander’s campaign. Everyone of these people have voting records that prove they are not old- right conservatives.

John J. (Jimmy) Duncan is the illustrious congressman who has been called the new “Ron Paul. One has to wonder if author, Michael Collins, was on drugs when he wrote the article. Congressman John Duncan voted for Goals 2000, the proposal of which can be found in literature published by the United Nations. The World Conference on Education for All was held in Jomtien, Thailand, March 5-9, 1990, and is found on the UNESCO website. Representative Duncan also attended the recent speech by education czar, Arne Duncan, at the University of Tennessee. (no relation) In 1994, Jimmy Duncan voted for NAFTA, despite constituent phone calls 10 to 1 against. NAFTA was written by Heritage Foundation’s Richard Allen, and has destroyed manufacturing jobs in America. [Link]

I recently called Congressman Duncan’s office and was told he will vote for the Internet Sales Tax being pushed by Governor Haslam and carried to the Senate by Alexander. Every single one of Lamar’s political supporters are neo-con Trotskyites. One only has to look at the voting record of each to see where they stand, and they’ll probably all do the bidding of Governor Haslam and vote to destroy small businesses. Haslam is urging every Tennessee congressperson to vote for the Market Fairness Act. I wonder what he’s promising them for this vote.

Internet Sales Tax

Quite obviously, Lamar is playing bagman in the US Senate for Tennessee’s Governor Haslam who, when he took office in 2010, swore to make his main objective an internet sales tax. [Link] He promised to call every other governor and have them push Congress to override the 1992 Supreme Court Quill ruling. In the ruling, states can collect sales tax on catalog sales only if the vender is physically located within their borders. The rationale was that it would be too complicated for catalog retailers to calculate the sales tax in each jurisdiction where they sell goods.

The ruling was later applied to Internet retailers. But Haslam argues that computer software makes the thinking obsolete. As a small business owner myself, I know the work this would add to my business and it would require an increase in my prices to cover the cost, and my business is not done via costly computer software.

On March 24, 2013, at 10:29 AM, the so-called Market Fairness Act passed in the Senate in the form of a second degree amendment by 75-24, with the support of 26 Republicans. This will send the message to Harry Reid that he has more than 60 votes to pass this as a standalone bill. In doing so, they have voted to grow government all over the country, hurt low-tax states, impose taxation without representation, (we fought a war over taxation without representation!) saddle small businesses with collecting taxes for 10,000 distinct tax jurisdictions, and adulterate the freest most successful entity known to man. Here are the 26 Republicans traitors. To top it off, PAC checks to many Republicans from large corporations have swayed their votes. To date, Lamar Alexander has received $41,000 in PAC checks from supporters of the internet tax.

Keep telling yourself there’s a difference in the parties. Unless there is a huge outcry from the electorate (call your House reps now), thanks to Governor Haslam and his water boy, Lamar Alexander, we will end up with this new draconian and unconstitutional tax. [Link]

Lamar and Education

Like our Tennessee Governor Haslam, Lamar Alexander has been in bed with the left’s agenda of destroying our children’s education, and it started a long time ago. In Part 2, we’ll look at Lamar’s education reform ideas, ideas he’s had for decades.

“The portrait that emerges of this early Lamar looks an awful lot like that of his mentor Howard Baker — centrist, non-ideological, and, as one Washington insider put it, ‘quintessentially establishment.'” ­Lisa Schiffren 

What Alexander Believes

Former Tennessee Governor, and U. S. Secretary of Education, Lamar Alexander, wrote a number of autobiographical books. “Steps Along the Way: A Governor’s Scrapbook,” published in 1986,
includes an interesting statement by Alexander. He said, “The book that changed my thinking the most during the last ten years was, ‘A God Within,’ by Rene’ Dubos.” (p.85).

From Vol. 1, Number 1, Free World Research, Iowa Report, November 1992, comes the following information.

Dubos’ book is subtitled, “A positive approach to man’s future as part of the natural world.” An examination of its contents reveal that Lamar Alexander has been highly influenced by New Age environmentalism. For example, Dubos asserts, “The earth is literally our mother, not only because we depend on her for nurture and shelter, but even more because the human species has been shaped by her in the womb of evolution.” (p 38) He further asserts that, “Our salvation depends upon our ability to create a religion of nature and substitute for magic suited to the needs and knowledge of modern man.” (p. 41).

Ahhh yes, he thinks pantheism is the answer!

Dubos, in addition to referring to the earth as a “living organism” on page 43, also goes so far as to say this, “Both polytheism and monotheism are losing the ancient power in the modern
world, and for this reason it is commonly assumed that present age is irreligious. But we may instead be moving to a higher level of religion.”
(p. 42).

The fact that this book has so affected Lamar Alexander is noteworthy when one considers Dubos’ view of science.

“Science is at present evolving from the description of concrete objects and events to the study of relationships as observed in complex systems. We may be about to recapture an experience of harmony, as intimation of the divine, from our scientific knowledge of the process through which the earth became prepared for human life, and the mechanisms through which man relates to the universe as a whole. A truly ecological view of the world has religious overtones (p. 42-43).

Dubos further states, “One of the worst demonic forces in technological civilization is the craving for growth, which is enhanced by countless institutional devices ranging from national prestige to real-estate promotion and other forms of commercial advertising.” (p. 313)

What a bunch of new age environmental commie gobbledygook! In other words, freedom and free enterprise is a “demonic force” that is killing the planet! Is it any wonder Alexander is contributing to the goals of UN Agenda 21, and is willing, among other things, to take 22,000 more acres of Tennessee land for Cherokee National Park?!

Rene’ Dubos, who sits on the Board of Planetary Citizens, clearly expounds an evolutionary view of the world that is congruent with the Planetary Citizens message, “The world is one, humanity is
one, and our future together is one.”
(quoted in a May, 1988 letter written by Donald Keys, President).

I guess we should all be holding hands and singing Kumbaya! For further documentation on this organization and its plans for a Luciferian new age religion for the new world order, see Constance
Cumbey’s superb book exposing the new age, Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow.”

Apparently, such an evolutionary spiritual view of man, replete with constant denigrations of western civilization, have highly influenced the man who was at the helm of education in the United States. Is it any wonder, then, that western values, such as free enterprise and the value of human life, are on a collision course with eastern mysticism in the nation’s classroom? As Tennessee’s senior Senator, his beliefs have not changed. He is an environmentalist and is on board with UN Agenda 21. He is also behind everything Obama, Education Czar Arne Duncan, and their buddy
Bill Ayers are marketing in education restructuring.

The 1989 Governor’s Conference

Lamar Alexander laid out the plan to restructure education at the November 2, 1989 Governors Conference on Education in Wichita, Kansas. [ Link] The Conference title was “Schools, Goals and the 1990s.” As George H.W Bush’s Secretary of Education, he implemented education restructuring with the long range goals from America 2000, which specified creation of the New American Schools Development Corporation (NASDC). And guess what? Rand Corporation, the developer of that nasty Delphi Technique, was invited to assess Phase 2 of the NASDC.

NASDC is the private, non-profit corporation set up by American business leaders at the request of President Bush to develop a new generation of American schools by contracting with and
supporting the most promising “break the mold,” “start from scratch,” curricula design teams. Even though NASDC is non-profit, the eleven winning design teams are “for profit.”

NASDC’s goal is education restructuring from academic teaching to Skinnerian/Pavlovian training of our children for the global workforce. (See Charlotte
Iserbyt’s Back to Basic’s Reform or OBE Skinnerian International Curriculum

President Ronald Reagan’s education agreements with the Soviet Union in 1985 and 1988, (agreements which are still in effect), as well as his setting up a Task Force on Private Sector Initiatives in the White House, basically started the ball rolling for public-private partnerships (corporate fascism) which are at the heart of the Carnegie Corporation/Mark Tucker/NASDC’s school-to-work agenda. Link-page 161 

Senator Lamar Alexander, good friend of Tennessee Governor Haslam, is a long time proponent of privatization. Alexander doesn’t want just pre-K schools, he wants the babies the minute they’re born and here’s how he said he’d do it.

“The private sector is charging ahead, helping clear the way for reform. One of the ways privatization can ‘clear the way’ is by avoiding the accountability due elected officials.” Sure, there are no elected officials. Dr. Hamburg, chief negotiator for the Soviet exchange admitted, “privately endowed foundations can operate in areas government may prefer to avoid.” By getting rid of elected officials!

At the 1989, Governors’ Conference, led by former Governor Bill Clinton, Lamar Alexander stated, ” I would go down to the maternity ward of the local hospital, or
whatever you call the part of the hospital where the nurses are who are there when the babies are born. Find out how many babies are born out of wedlock, how
many babies are born with single parents. Just so you know that! I would think the Brand New American School would be year-round, open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00

A second characteristic might be that these schools will serve children from age 3 months old to age 18. That may be a shocking thought to you; but, if you were to do an inventory of every baby in your community and think about what the needs of those babies were for the next four or five years, you might see that those needs might not be served any other way. They have to be served in some way and maybe around the school. Or, if you study a little more, you might go back and think the school might have to serve the pregnant mother of the baby in terms of prenatal healthcare….”

Knowing what Lamar’s beliefs are, he was in good company with fellow new age believer, Dr. Shirley McCune. She is the former senior director of the federally funded Mid-Continent Regional Educational Laboratory, and an expert in school restructuring. She appeared with former Secretary of Education, Lamar Alexander, at this Governor’s Summit on education reform as the keynote speaker.

She said, “What we are into is a total restructuring of the society, what this amounts to is a total transformation of our society. The whole ball game in this particular change society is that there are only two things that really matter. One of those is the information capital we can put together and our ability to use information to produce products and ideas and new information, and secondly, to produce Human Capital…we have to prepare students not for today’s society but for a society that’s 20, 30, 40, 50, years down the road.” [Link] “Produce Human Capital” means our children are an owned commodity to be used by the elite in the global workforce. Wall Street Journal’s, article of June 6, 2011 entitled, Industry Puts Heat on Schools to Teach Skills Employers Need,” is School-to-Work!

Part of McCune’s message affirmed the need to trade fact for feeling, “We no longer see the teaching of facts and information as the primary function of education,” she announced to the governors. At Mid-Continent, under her guidance, she pioneered the development of psycho-social curricula for changing a child’s values, including death education. Few realized then, that Dr. McCune was being tutored by her spirit guides. As co-author of a strange book called, “The Light Shall Set You Free,” she quotes her demonic mentor, Kuthumi, who introduces himself as a “World Teacher” and “the spokesperson for enlightenment and education for the Galactic Command.”

In her 1996 book, “The Light Shall Set You Free,” Shirley McCune stated, “Only the souls who are ready to receive the new curriculum will elect to raise their vibrations to match those required to enter the New Age … Did you know that animals’ souls are the souls of our future children? We are entering the Age of Aquarius … the goal for all humanity who will enter the new millennium is to become androgynous …”

If the above quote makes shake your head, there’s more… Shirley McCune as the former director of the Mid-Coast Regional Education Laboratory, trained thousands of Texas teachers and
administrators. She’s also been a research assistant at the globalist School-to-Work program at Arizona State University. And she’s currently the administrative assistant to the superintendent of schools in the State of Washington.

In a planning workshop in Millard, Nebraska, July 21, 1983 she presented a draft of planned changes. The following list identifies basic shifts which are part of this restructuring. We are to change from an industrial society to an information society, from a centralized society to a decentralized society, from a national economy to an integrated global economy, from economics
of scale to appropriate scale, from representative democracy (we are a republic not a democracy) to issue politics, from party politics to a politics of the radical center, (which we have now), from business as usual to greater accountability. (But to whom? The government?)

It certainly appears that Dr. Shirley McCune and Lamar Alexander have a lot in common with their new age thinking, especially in the realm of restructuring education. McCune is obviously a new age fruitcake, and Senator Alexander isn’t far behind in his new age beliefs.

Remember Alexander’s words from a 1990 Southern Living magazine article, “The conclusion I’ve come to,” he explains, “is that rather than tinkering with the same old vehicle, it would be better to start from scratch. I suggest we create a brand-new American school, as different from today’s schoolhouse as the telegraph was from the Pony Express. “Such a school,” he continues, “would probably start with babies and go through the eighth grade. It would be all year long. It would be open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every child would have his or her own computer and workstation. Every child would have a team of teachers that would stay with that child until graduation.”

This is total brainwashing of our children. Alexander does not even want the parents to instill any basic beliefs in the child before kindergarten. They want our children from cradle to grave, to indoctrinate them with their politically correct communist beliefs in order to make them nice little brainless “commodities” for the New World Order.

The most shocking revelation with these facts is that these people are the hierarchy who are still in the business of “restructuring” and “reforming” education! They have already destroyed academic learning, and with it, generations of our children!

In Part 3, we’ll discuss Lamar Alexander and Common Core
