At the August 29th meeting we learned how Common Core takes away control of our children’s education from us and the local officials that we elected. We also were informed that Common Core violates the Constitution by federalizing education. We found out that the Common Core Standards in math will put us years behind other countries. We had Representative Andy Thompson from Ohio show us his bill to repeal Common Core.
Now is the time for us to take the next step. We will have Steve Shreeve as our speaker. Steve is an Oldham County Resident and father of four school aged children. He became aware of Common Core earlier this year when, together with his wife, he began to discover how changes in the public school curriculum and philosophy were affecting his children. After learning more about the underlying philosophy of Common Core, he began connecting with others to organize against this effort to nationalize our schools. His presentation will cover how the ideas behind Common Core are manifest in all stages of education and what concerned citizens can do to prevent its poor content, database surveillance, and high costs from destroying our education system.
The time for us to move forward and become active on the education of our youth is upon us. History shows us that Adolph Hitler sought to centralize and control education. We must not allow the minds of our youth to be dominated by the Federal government.
Our Repeal Common Core…The Next Step event will take place on Tuesday evening November 5th from 7- 9 pm at the Crescent Springs City Municipal Building…739 Buttermilk Pk in Crescent Springs, KY 41017. The future of our country is at stake.

The Kenton County Tea meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. The next meeting is 6pm, Wednesday, October 9 at PeeWees Restaurant, 2325 Anderson Rd, Crescent Springs, KY. The meeting end at 7:30. Some eat dinner, some have something to drink and some only come to participate in the meeting. At the Oct 9 meeting Kentucky Senator Chris McDaniel is speaking on Worker's Comp special funding. Jamie Comer, Kentucky Agricultural Commissioner is also speaking.
Tolls are expected to be a big part of the meeting. The Enquirer has sold us down the road and want us to pay tolls. Our Northern Kentucky legislators must stand united against tolls. We do not need any John McCains or Lindsay Grahams in our NKY Caucus. We need unit cohesion within our ranks.

Thanks to your phone calls, letters, emails, and rants on talk radio; John Boehner had a change of heart and the House of Representatives easily passed a continuing resolution that strips Obamacare of all funding on Friday, the bill now heads to the U.S. Senate where many are eager to restore the flow of dollars to President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.
According to Ted Cruz, “The fight to save America from Obamacare is just beginning — it may well go back and forth from the House and Senate several times — and a united Republican front means that Harry Reid and the President cannot ignore the American people”.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will move to strike out the Obamacare defunding language after getting the 60 votes needed to limit debate
Senate Conservatives Fund Executive Director Matt Hoskins called directly on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to get the 41 votes required to defeat cloture on “Harry Reid’s plan to fund Obamacare.”
Now it is up to us to TAKE ACTION.
Let’s give Mitch McConnell the opportunity to finally use his position in the Senate to work for us.
Call his office at (202) 224-2541 and tell him to lead the Republicans to filibuster Harry Reid’s plan to fund Obamacare. Republicans like to say they are against Obamacare, but now is the time to prove it.
