Take Action – Call Governor Rick Scott’s campaign about Education!!

Does Rick Scott care about education? Most of the time, no one even answers the phone at the governor’s office. I think the most effective way to get our message to him is to call his political director and campaign. Please get everyone calling and overwhelming the campaign so Scott starts listening to the people of Florida! Our kids need to be his top priority. His actions matter not a commercial of him hugging his grandson. Please send this to all of your contacts in Florida.

Please call and leave a message if no one answers:
Christian Butterfield
(305) 491-2389
Central Florida Political Director
Scott for Florida

I contacted Mr. Butterfield 2 weeks ago regarding education in Florida. I told him 3 supervoters will be sitting out the election in November because of Rick Scott's lack of involvement in education. I got Butterfield's phone number off of an email protesting Rick Scott in Sanford. Butterfield said Rick Scott cares about education and they just have to work on the messaging. He said he was going to have the education part of the campaign call me within the week to discuss the problems with the educational system. I have NOT received a call from them. I left a message for Mr. Butterfield to call on Wednesday and no reply and I just tried again and no one picks up the phone.
Rick Scott cares about education and our children? I don't think so.
Please call Mr. Butterfield and let him know where you stand on education and voting for Rick Scott in November. Issues to include:
1. Kids are learning math wrong so they won’t be able to compete in college and jobs requiring math skills. Many science careers require 2 to 3 years of calculus. If it takes the next generation 5 minutes to write out and answer simple math like 12 plus 13 that should be able to be done in their heads, then how will they ever do complex calculus problems on college exams in the short period of time allotted for tests?
2. Every course requires an end of course exam for teacher evaluations – it’s too much pressure on kids when the tests can be 30% of their final grade. And in Algebra, the kids must pass the state test to graduate – even if they are passing the course, a failure on the end of course exam results in a failure of the course – one test determines all.
3. End of course exams are computerized and should give immediate scores like the GRE does yet kids and parents are worrying and waiting for weeks to see if they pass a course while the FLDOE debates a passing score.
4. To bump up school grades, kids are being placed in AP classes when they don’t request it and not allowed to leave when unable to do the college level work and are failing.
5. End of Course exams are going to be given in every course. So now every teacher will be teaching to a test all year in every subject. Even electives and PE will have exams.
6. High school kids take biology, algebra and US History end of course exams in early May and then have to sit around in classes until June doing busy work because there is no more curriculum to be taught. The curriculum is crammed into the year and rushed so the tests can be administered in May rather than ending with a final exam in June.

Please make the call. We have to make our voice heard loud and clear – prioritize our kids and prioritize education.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
