Watch the video of the Pleasant Hill Common Core Forum
May 22, Pleasant Hill, CA?Over 150 parents, educators and other interested members of the community came to the Common Core Forum on April 29th at the Pleasant Hill Community Center to hear a panel of experts spell out the myriad problems with the Common Core State Standards Initiative and student data mining. Anthony Cody, Bill Evers, Orlean Koehle and Ze’ev Wurman, moderated by Kevin Snider of the Pacific Justice Institute, laid out clearly and concisely how the new standards reverse hard-fought gains in California education, reduce local control and parental authority, and threaten student privacy rights.

Watch the video below.

The Pleasant Hill Common Core Forum was put on by parents at their own time and expense, the forum also provided for members of the audience to ask their questions of the panelists. “We pre-screened no one, whoever wanted to ask anything could do so,” notes Sally Wood, one of the organizers. Questions ranged from the dangers of electromagnetic radiation from wireless computer networks to how parents could opt out of the standardized testing for the Common Core.

The Forum also provided a website where interested parties can further research the advantages and problems with the Common Core State Standards Initiative. That website can be found at: Interested parties are encouraged to check back regularly, as the organizers continue to update the site with pertinent information.

The Forum in its entirely is also now available on YouTube at:

Stop Richmond from seizing your home using your right to Quiet Title

  • Quite Title can stop Richmond’s proposed plan to seize underwater mortgages under eminent domain.

What is Quiet Title? 

  • Facing government seizure on the one hand, and potential foreclosure from predatory financial institutions on the other, individual homeowners are faced with a King Kong v Godzilla no-win situation. Individual homeowners are completely marginalized by powerful corporate interests including cities (Richmond), banks, Wall Street finance, and large national loan servicing agents, who will easily spend tens of millions of dollars to defend their respective claims in court.
  • A Quiet Title Action is a lawsuit to determine who owns a piece of real estate, and so quiet any disputes over the title. Only a homeowner can bring Quiet Title Action against unlawful claims, including from banks, on the lien of a property. An action to Quiet Title gives property owners an opportunity to inexpensively defend themselves, to restore order to their chains of titles caused by the mortgage meltdown, and to render their properties marketable once again, free of third-, fourth-, or fifth-party claims.

Must Read About Common Core Indoctrinating Our Children
  • Common Core, a mandated government school curriculum, will indoctrinate it social justice (socialism), anti-capitalism, sustainability, white guilt, global citizenship, self-esteem, affective, math, and culture-sensitive spelling and language. This is done in the name of consciousness raising, moral relativity, fairness, diversity, and multiculturalism. Read more...

County delays decision on housing program as capacity crowd chimes in
By Nels Johnson

    After a packed hearing featuring a long parade of passionate partisans, a decision on county housing density policies, zoning and potential development sites along Highway 101 was delayed to next Tuesday.

    A standing-room-only crowd of more than 250 jammed the supervisors' chambers, rivaling in size and intensity the crowds that argued about the future of Hamilton Air Force Base 35 years ago.

    So many rose to speak that officials were forced to continue the discussion for a week. Many carried signs signaling opposition to housing density programs for Marinwood and Strawberry, while others clutched "equal housing opportunity" signs.  Read more...

Tim Donnely opposes California SB1
Government can force your to sell your property at any time.
See Tim in the video below.

SB 1 re-constitutes redevelopment law by authorizing a city and county that included the territory of a redevelopment agency to form a "Sustainable Communities Investment Authority" to comply with the provisions of Community Redevelopment Law using the assets of a former redevelopment agency. It creates a new transactions and use tax in contravention of Prop. 26, requires no finding of blight, allows private property to be taken for private use, requires the payment of prevailing wages and labor compliance programs, includes infrastructure investments to support grocery stores in "food desert" areas, and requires a jobs plan that includes targeting ex-cons for hire.

Contact Heather to learn how to create and join county task forces.

Hi everyone, 
As you know the One Bay Area plan has been adopted, which means that high density Priority Developments all over the Bay Area will be the norm.  And the next phase of the ABAG/MTC plan is to target private property for acquisition and conservation.


I am heading up a task force for Contra Costa County. I have a plan to attack this and would be willing to share this and create separate county task forces specific to this effort. If you are interested in becoming a task force leader for your county and/or interested in working as a member of a task force within your county let me know asap.


I will be holding a tactical training session very soon.

Plan Bay Area: Telling People What to Do

Click HerePlan Bay Area: Telling People What to Do - Heartland Institute (blog)

The San Francisco area's recently adopted Plan Bay Area may set a new standard ... Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG).

Irrational Planning

Violating perhaps the most fundamental requirement of a rational plan, Plan Bay Area begins with a situation that no longer exists. Further, it is based on exaggeration, systematic disregard of official federal government projections and overly optimistic planning assumptions.
