    It’s just impossible the US and other countries didn’t know well in advance that Putin was planning
    to take over Ukraine. The US and world countries have so much surveillance over that area.
    And I don’t just mean because of security at Sochi Olympics after the Islamic terrorist bombing a couple of weeks prior, nor the fact that every country being in Russia. When you looked at so many countries leaders sitting and watching like Italy’s they are going to be getting constant updates on things.

    Makes you wonder if it wasn’t that flexible timing Obama told Putin he needed after re-election.

    Obama waited very long before even taking the pose in the oval office.

    Had to put this in somewhere:

    Jeb Bush is more liberal than anyone could guess. I recently read an article on the simularities between he and
    Hillary Clinton on their educaion views and build a village.

    You all may have read his recent compliment that “illegal immigranst” and “lega” are both risk-takers and we should
    embrace them.

    Someone I know wrote and sent this to me and I’m not sure if the click on she provided I was able to use will work, but, I was able to and just clicking on the speakers that Jeb Bush had at this conferance was Hillary Clinton, and The Dept of Education’s Arne Duncan.

    Recall The Dept of Education’s Arne Duncan who was handpicked by Obama from Chicago and even aids Michelle with the Public school food regulations

    Let’s not forget Arnies the from cradle education that has already began by simulation on baby’s in cribs.
    Let’s not forget while Superintendent over Chicago, DOE Arne Duncan wanted to build schools for homosexuals, bi-sexuals, and transgender’s to attend so they would not worry about being bullied.

    This woman is very trained in Un and Agenda 21 and worked on environmental regulations.

    I just want to get this out as Jeb Bush has been traveling around the country a lot.

    “““““““““““““““““““““““

    A conference took place yesterday and today in Dallas, Texas. The conference, “Globalization of Higher Education,” was moderated by Jeb Bush and James Hunt, former governors of Florida and North Carolina, respectively. A 13 March 2014 press release stated that this was an “inaugural” conference.

    Because of my continued concern about mandate No. 36 of UNa21 (not to mention the thirty-nine other mandates), I decided to take a couple of hours and do some research on this conference. I’ve provided links to some of the sites I visited.

    Attendance at this conference by people from around the world was by invitation only. Invitees included leaders of international universities, politicians, “cultural thought leaders,” post-secondary education “influencers,” and other dignitaries.

    The who’s who list of guest speakers included individuals well known for their advocacy of globalization of business, government, education, and the mandates of UNa21. The speakers were selected by Jeb Bush and James Hunt.

    The co-hosts for this conference were Queens College of the University of Cambridge, England, and a Dallas-based organization called Academic Partnerships.

    I am not familiar with current members of Academic Partnerships’ board of directors. A reading of Academic Partnerships’ Mission Statement, as well as those shown as being partners, board members, and other affiliates, gives a glimpse into these globalization strategists’ plans for the type of education that will be mandated for people attending post-secondary institutions that affiliate with Academic Partnerships and its “sister company,” Whitney International University System.

    The Senior Advisory Board of Academic Partnerships is another eye-opener, with names of widely-recognized globalization strategists.

    Academic Partnerships’ “sister company” is a Miami, Florida-based organization called Whitney International University System which, according to the Academic Partnerships website, was “… founded in 2005 and has built the first Pan-Latin American distance learning network.” You will be interested in reading the 6 May 2005 announcement by Inside Higher Ed magazine.

    Whitney International University System is an affiliate of OAS (the Organization of American States) and UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). As you know, UNESCO, itself, is an affiliate/partner of other UN organizations/affiliates, including those which involved in the propagation of UNa21′s forty mandates, the SCNSD and its Major Partners (including SCI), etc.

    Company information for Academic Partnerships includes the following statement: “We serve our partners through a university-centric model, which leads to sustainable growth and ensures that partner institutions flourish in the future, despite the rapid changes occurring in higher education. University partners retain control over the content of their courses and those admitted into them are not required to make any initial financial investment to bring their programs online. AP generates revenue only after students are enrolled, ensuring that online learning remains a risk-free proposition for our partners.”
