This is how you know we’re losing our country

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelConstitution: Founding father Benjamin Franklin is said to have been asked by a woman upon leaving the Constitution Convention in Philadelphia in 1787 what kind of government he and the others created — a republic or a monarchy.

“A republic, if you can keep it,” Dr. Franklin is said to have replied.

A new poll from the University of Pennsylvania suggests that Franklin was, sadly, prophetic.

According to the survey, four in 10 Americans can’t name a single right contained in the Constitution’s First Amendment — which, in the interest of education, reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

It is our most basic of rights — the right to be who we want to be, say what we want to say, and hold our government accountable through peaceful demonstration and protest.

And nearly half of Americans don’t know that or, at a minimum, can’t list the amendment that gives them such political power.

More: The survey also found that 33 percent of those polled were unable to name one of the three branches of the U.S. government, such as legislative, executive and judicial. And only 26 percent of the respondents could name all three branches.

That’s pathetic.

“Protecting the rights guaranteed by the Constitution presupposes that we know what they are. The fact that many don’t is worrisome,” said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center. “These results emphasize the need for high-quality civics education in the schools and for press reporting that underscores the existence of constitutional protections.”

She’s right. Lack of constitutional education is the fault of the U.S. primary education system, which is run by a bunch of Left-wing Marxist types whose leaders, long ago, figured out the best way to subdue Americans and hold political sway over them is to keep them dumbed down — about their history, their roots, their liberties, and their rugged individualism. You tend to rely more on “the state” when you’re taught that “the state” holds all power over you, instead of it being the other way around.

What these Leftist “progressives” fail to understand is once “the state” holds all power, that will include having all power over them, as well. No more freedom, period — for anybody. So yeah, we’ll all have to accept the climate change lie, but no one gets to live where they want, work where they want, and do what they want. All that will be “planned.”

“A republic, if you can keep it,” said Dr. Franklin.

Two hundred thirty years is a short period of time in the history of nations, but it appears that’s all the time it took for Americans to piss away the incredible gift of liberty and self-government our founders passed along to us.

Left-wing progressivism, which used to dwell within the American communist movement, today has found a home in the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party is the party of authoritarianism, anti-Americanism, and tyranny — all of the things Dr. Franklin warned about when he spoke those prophetic, sage words.

The Democratic Party controls the education establishment.

The education establishment is projecting Left-wing Marxism onto our children. Marxism is not conducive to freedom.

The progressive plan is working as designed, evidenced by the University of Pennsylvania poll.

We have a choice as a nation: Take back our local school boards, get rid of the Marxist educators, and demand our kids are thoroughly taught the Constitution — or lose this republic.

  1. I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it again : until every last scumbag from God’s Chosen Criminals is TOSSED BODILY out of America, this misery will continue. We need to stop worrying about OFFENDING them, and do to them what they are doing to US !! Time to get NASTY, as Trump says, cause man does he have that RIGHT !! GTFO of our country !!!!!

  2. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion–and os thats why they now let the suprem court act as legislators ?And is it why the freedom of religion proposition was used to allow California to legitimize the birthing of the Church of Satan under rule of law , supposedly from the moral authority of the Pope , who neither he not any Defender of the Faith has either , then or in the 51 years since its creation ever challenged its rioght to exist in a Chrisitan democratic nation or republic or under indeed a Constitutional Monarchy?Is that it ?Did they know think it significant?Or was it some thing else that kept theeir lips sealed ,as also now with the gay marriage debate?What could it be?Is it like Princess Dianna so succinctly stated. “theyre all in it together”?Is that why now the flag is being used on classrooms , not the Constitution ?Is it been deemed more “appropriate” to use a piece of cloth as the graven image over the ideology of some handful of lawyers, as the substitute for the Bible by those whom claim the rights to state”In God we trust”

    So sad and true how public ed is so dumbed down and the real people’s history is never told in the textbooks they crank out in TX by some overpaid propaganda writers.

    Best random teachers are those who explore and assign reading of real peoples civics and history and literature…put the standard issue textbooks in the paper recycling dumpster and get on about the great books pumping truth …oh yes great whistleblowers revelations about the prevalent gov shadow gov that needs to be purged. It’s the DEMS and GOP TWO HEADED SNAKE GOV have been destroying public ed in my state CA… In 1972 CA had some very good public ed results… Everybody learned to “read, write and arithmetic”…we all learned to use libraries and we jammed into new and used bookstores…and in 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s there was so much in print…our ratings were quite high for even dull normal public ed. Also students and teachers were still engaged in core critical thinking, exercising mental discernment and fair and open debates. But part of Prop 13 in 1970’s was and still is an attack on CA Public Ed. College is corporate mind control in oh so many ways. CA has long since sunk to the bottom

    Betsy DeVois is the anti-CHRIST to public ed in USA.

    OY VAY! We need holistic integrative public ed massively.

    We the people must get together and come up with a full circle holistic platform for public ed contents and methods. Sure ain’t cutting it, for Bill Gates hostile takeover of public education like in L.A., CA…computerized ed programs turn your kids into math and science slaves for the corporations like Big PHARMA, Big VAXX, Big Military, MSM, Monetary BANKSTERS, Big GOV, Big Crooked Attorneys, Big Crooked Academics, killer drones operators on zombie pills,

    Hey People HOME school your kids with Genius Tribe community support now.
    Oh and HOME school adults about sex ed which is really a sad sicko broken mess in USA and sadly much still under the shadow of the sicko sperm club members gov that believe in rape and underage rape and incest rape are legal because sperm got rammed in there and sperm rules don’t you know! People we gotta get way creative and stop having babies and take care of our planet Earth and clean it up and make it healthy. We got a lot of work to do. This place is not a safe place for kids and grandkids… What are you thinking people? Over half of our heritage wildlife species that we had 50 years ago are extinct… And PEDOPHILES and sex traffickers are legion…

    Fact: RX drugs and meth and heroin are taking people out in droves big droves! Leading cause of mega deaths in USA. Check the… The FDA Death Meter –

    Fact: You are 27,000 times more likely to die at the hands of an M.D. in USA, than you are likely to die at the hands of a gun owner. Do the math. I know, kids who graduate public school cannot do math in their heads ever. Got a computer? They ask the computer but have no gears in their brains for figuring out the math… Big missing links hey math and language and music and dance and sports all use similar mental functions to flourish and develop balanced left brain/right brain thinking.

    Fact: 98% of USDA foods are illegal in other countries

    The MATRIX devours minds and souls.
    Real creative healthy personal educational freedom is outside the Matrix… Check it out.
