“The reason we’re voting today is that we need an education secretary confirmed by and accountable to the United States Senate so that the law to fix No Child Left Behind will be implemented the way Congress wrote it,” [Sen. Lamar] Alexander [R-Tenn.] said on the chamber floor ahead of the vote, urging his Republican colleagues to support the nomination.
“This is such an important year for our 100,000 public schools and the students in those schools,” he continued. “I want to be sure we are implementing the law the way Congress wrote it.”
And the way to do this is to confirm a “Common Core Crazy” as this writer put it in December when the nomination was made? What does one have to do with the other, and really where is all this Common Core stuff coming from?
Over at Bare Naked Islam, and on a handful of other blog sites read by just a few, the truth about who is funding and pushing Common Core in the United States was revealed over three years ago, and has never really been shouted from the rooftops. Plainly: Qatar Foundation International, and other groups based in the middle east linked to Islam. This quote from Counter-Jihad Report by way of Maggie’s Notebook tells a truly frightening tale of the tip of the iceberg.
The Qatar Foundation International, or QFI, in 2011 partnered with the Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate matchmaking between classrooms in the U.S. and international schools through something called the “Connect All Schools” project.
QFI, funded by the Qatari government, explains on its website the initiative was founded in response to Obama’s call in his June 2009 speech to the Arab world in Cairo, Egypt, to “create a new online network, so a young person in Kansas can communicate instantly with a young person in Cairo.”
QFI relates how more than 100 U.S. schools and organizations have already connected on the interactive website.
The stated goal of the initiative is to “connect every school in the U.S. with the world by 2016.”

The Qatar Foundation International was founded in 1995 by Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. In 2013, when the quote above was written and a number of articles were published on the blogosphere, the subject was one Vartan Gregorian, an Iranian who had been appointed to Obama’s White House Fellows in 2009, and his connection to the above mentioned project…as well as his connection to Bill Ayers of Weather Underground fame AND the Muslim Brotherhood.
WND previously exposed that Gregorian served as a point man in granting $49.2 million in startup capital to an education-reform project founded by former Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers and chaired by Obama.
Documentation shows Gregorian was central in Ayers’ recruitment of Obama to serve as the first chairman of the project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge – a job in which Obama worked closely on a regular basis with Ayers.
Coincidence? Yeah, and Common Core’s history curriculum leaving out all the “dead white European males” is just their way of empowering women. After all, western heroes are all Christian, pagan, or agnostic. Can’t be celebrating that, now can we.
About the same time this was going on, an enterprising blogger at Daily Roll Call managed to dig up the Islamic Society of North America Core Standards and tie them into the Qatari educational efforts in the United States. Bottom line: replace American culture from the inside using the schools – including infiltrating the private and parochial schools, reportedly. Common Core seems to be one of the tools being used to do that. The goal is to nationalize education, remove the individualistic tendencies of Americans, and replace it with making Islam prominent. That information came out in a trial in 2008 against seven members of the Holy Land Foundation:
“Muslim Brotherhood documents seized by the FBI and presented at the Holy Land Foundation Trial in Texas revealed a plan by the Muslim Brotherhood and their subsidiary organizations like CAIR to penetrate and indoctrinate American K-12 students.”
Freedom Post In 2008, seven members of an Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation were convicted by a Richardson, TX, jury of violating a 1977 law known as the International Emergency Economic Powers Act through money laundering activities on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.
A key prosecution exhibit was an 18-page document entitled, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America“ by Mohamed Akram, one of 300 unindicted co-conspirators in the case. The memo was seized from the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search coordinated by the FBI’s Washington office. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, a front group created by the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) to garner public support for Hamas within the U.S.
How are they going to soften up Americans when it comes to Islam? By investing in Pearson Education, a publisher of Common Core textbooks, among others. (A representative from Pearson was one of the people exposed by Project Veritas in January.) One can influence a whole lot of hearts and minds while they are in school.
So far, these dots have not been officially connected in the mainstream media despite the occasional story surfacing of students being taken to mosques to pray, and the outrageous omissions found by people reviewing the new AP history curriculum – which parents are not allowed to see. However, it might explain the absurdity of replacing traditional Arab math with…well whatever Common Core is publishing.
And so, with the confirmation of Common Core Crazy John King in the position of Secretary of Education, another piece of the intricate puzzle to install acceptance of Islam into the United States without being obvious about it falls into place. The plan was hatched a long time ago. These people have patience that most Americans just don’t.
