Is this the next Common Core?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Think Common Core is bad – wait until you hear about Imagining America, a national consortium of 90 campuses that Glenn believes could be America’s next progressive propaganda machine.

Imagining America was created through the White House Millennium Council, which was initiated under Bill Clinton in 1998 through an executive order. Their membership includes over 90 universities, including Columbia, NYU, Brown, University of Chicago, University of Washington, and UC Santa Barbara—all of whom receive grants from the Tides Foundation.

Using publicly available video, Glenn showed what some of the people involved want to do with the program. They discussed changing the face of government by getting radicals to run for office and involved with changing policy. They discussed redistribution of wealth, inequality, and oppression.

Many of their members have ties to George Soros. Pam Korza, for example, an advisory board member, is actually the co-director of the Soros funded Animating Democracy. Other members have written progressive texts and have ties to a wide range of connections including government organizations, universities, corporations, and more.

Imagining America openly admits to collaborating with “a whole domain of robust organizations with which higher education-based scholars and artists [can] collaborate” –meaning the Tides supported universities, and also what they call “non-academic cultural” organizations such as the Animating Democracy Initiative founded in 1996, The Community Arts Network founded in 1999, and the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience founded in 1999 – all of whom receive funds from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

The organization is also closely tied to the new United States Department of Arts and Culture, a group that Glenn claims is the new Progressive propaganda arm. It’s not a real government organization, but it sure seems to want to act like one. The group seeks to use the arts to promote “cultural equity” and a “democratic media”. Glenn said that they also want to re-create and rewrite our history using “observation, improvisation, innovation, resourcefulness, and creativity.”

There were several alarming pieces of information that Glenn and his team were able to find out about Imagining America, but perhaps the most concerning things were there efforts to rewrite and shape history. At their 2013 Conference, the group hosted a panel called “Claiming the Past, Creating the Future” that sought to “step into history and actively participate in documenting the past from the vantage point of the present to articulate a socially just future”.

While this group has become as pervasive as Common Core, Glenn said people need to be aware of what is happening early before they have a chance to grow their influence and rewrite history through indoctrination.

    Wonderful and simple plan:

    Get everyone sick of the left and right, and bring both parties down. In the process, establish a new form of progressive-communist party (exactly as Van Jones declared two years ago and affirmed today on local radio) and present it as the ‘logical alternative’ to the ‘old way.’

    • Anonymous

      We’re still 11 years away from having Van Jones as president. Obama has to finish his term, then we gotta’ have Hillary.

      I’m just saying you don’t have to start bashing Van Jones yet. You’re getting way ahead of yourself.

      • Draxx

        No we need to openly bash Van Jones The Communist Today, so that in 11 years people are Fully Aware Of What His Intentions On Ruining This Country Are…!!!

          great so use their so called logic start now make people c what and who he is i hope by then obama and his czars and hillary and hers are out of any possible office they can hold it is past time that Americans do what we are supposed to do and that is WATCH THE GOVT AND MAKE THEM DO WHAT WE WANT

        For the record I’m not exactly ‘bashing’ Van Jones. He has made his intentions quite well known, is allied with Soros, and is blasted dangerous across the board.

        Never underestimate him.

      This should not be called Common Core but instead…
      Common Corruption!

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        Actually call it for the proper name: Communist C***.

        The blasted thing is Draxx, I can make a convincing case to the outcome of this, and have begun to wargame the matter out with some friends.

        In as early as three years, in time for 2016, we could see this taking hold and gaining traction to a new ‘alternative system’ of the old two-party system.

        The Progressives and Communists will sell it as a solution better than the old ways, and make it into ‘bread and circuses.’

    You know who else has a department of arts and culture? The Czech Republic, where my Grandfather still lives. After Grandma died he wanted to give us some of his art work. Now, he is not famous. In fact you will have to really search to find his name anywhere in Czech history. He was one of many artists who helped to restore things the communists painted over during the Iron Curtain era, that’s his only national credit. But, his paintings are more than 50 years old so the department of arts and culture wants 1,000 euro a painting to allow us to take them from the country. Yep, we need that here…

    “They discussed changing the face of government by getting radicals to run for office and involved with changing policy”

    Simple Solution: off their heads, then they won’t be able to run for office.
    and by the way these radicals are not the only one’s who are artists, anything they do; easily refuted.

    People, you have to think about and watch what is going on around you. The feebs in the cheap seats in Cuyahoga County, Ohio (Cleveland and suburbs) voted themselves a sales tax increase which supports “the arts.” Yeah, sure, it helps keep The Cleveland Orchestra alive in a sucky national economy and a local one which has been abandoned by Big Corporate America and Big Personal Money. But at what cost? At the cost of untold numbers of Dollars taken from the people who can least afford to spend them and who can least afford to commute to neighboring (and less stoopid) neighboring counties where the piggyback sales tax rates are much lower. The Good Lord loves all His children. The Progressives love the stoopid ones.

    Dear Glenn

    Mystery of Evil on the Rise II Thessalonians 2:
    King James Version (KJV)
    2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
    2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Only Hope is The Plan Eternal
    Acts 15:14-17
    King James Version (KJV)
    14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
    15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
    16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
    17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

    Best made plans of mankind seem to end in the Dirt because of Evil or a Museum!

    Saints coming Rewards
    Hebrews 6:10
    For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

  • Sam Fisher

    History is important to get right. You have people on both sides of the isle rewriting history for their political agendas. The birthers that rewrite the constitution because they don’t anyone with the last name Cruz as President, moon landing deniers, and the 9/11 truthers are all cut from the same cloth so is the left winged professors who claim Jesus was a Marxist, Bush is to blame for everything and think all the founders where atheist. Both sides are cut from the same cloth both not interested in the truth and their for both are enemies of mine for without truth of history how are we to learn from our past.

    I argued non stop with my “art” teacher about all the ugly art she tried to tell us was “art”…She said that anything an artist makes is art… I said, I make a poopy every morning – that doesn’t make it art!

    One can only look out for family and friends. Ghandi had the correct idea, withhold support where possible; let the government programs fail, refuse to cooperate, refuse to serve and apportion blame publicly, provide education enhancement and correction for your children, secrete firearms, ammunition and food for self-defense, and if probable necessary find a location off the grid. to which to retreat. Neither political party ca be trusted, believed or relied upon.

    People tend to overlook that George Soros has become fabulously wealthy not by seeking to better humanity but by assiduosly working to collapse the economies of whole countries, while selling their currrency short. He has done this over and over again mostly by seting up unsustainable socal programs that undermine the ability of the government to continue to function. But perhaps the leapard has changed his spots.

    I love the way they want to stop giving money for police and armed forces. What morons. The moment we have no police or military there won’t be any need for education we will be murdered in the streets. The poor get more money for education now than the students that are not poor. Money does not quarantee a child will learn. You cannot force or buy someone wanting to be successful. Parents are the #1 factor that makes a child succeed. And we are pulling our kids further and further away from parents. The agenda is to disconnect children an their parents. The more you do that the more children will not succeed. Gee could this be the truth behind what they are doing? Dumb them down, drug them up, no loyalty to anyone except the government??? I say yes this is exactly what it is all about.
