H. R. 1388 The GIVE Act Definitions Part 2

"If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of Almighty God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave."  Samuel Adams

"If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of Almighty God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave." Samuel Adams

I can only hope that in Part 2 I will be able to get through the definitions of this bill.  It is like the World Trade Center building in regards to all others on the skyline.   And knowing how Congress doesn’t do its job in reading these bills, I will proceed on the assumption that none of them will read this one either.  They will, instead, depend on someone else to read it and tell them a synopsis which may or may not be accurate.

I’ll leave you with one other thought and then jump right into where I left off; Federally mandated programs have been the bane of States for a LONG, LONG time.  While federal money is enough to start these programs, it is usually only the bare minimum to get these programs started leaving the burden of the cost resting squarely on the backs of State budgets.  Why the States go for it I will Never understand.  With the number of States declaring Sovereignty growing, one can only hope they tell the feds to go to…

Another thought struck me as I was getting ready to write about more definitions in this bill, could this have anything to do with the dumbing down of Americans?  Could it be, that in order to start to program the masses you must first inhibit or stop their ability to think critically?  I’ve noticed a distinct decline in the use of common sense in young adults and teens today.   Common sense and critical thinking, the ability to get to the root of a problem, are absolutely necessary to see what is happening today.

So, backing up just a tad in order to get a basic understanding of where I left off:


‘(b) Allotments to States, Territories, and Indian Tribes- The Corporation, in consultation with the Secretary of Education, may make allotments to State educational agencies, Territories, and Indian tribes to pay for the Federal share of–

‘(1) planning and building the capacity within the State, Territory, or Indian tribe to implement service-learning programs that are based principally in elementary and secondary schools, including–

Planning and building to capacity within… What an interesting way to state something. Do they mean the capacity of the State to educate children? Do they mean increasing capacity?  Another exceptional strange thing of note; while it mentions the *Corporation* several times so far, and as definitive as this bill has been so far, NOWHERE has this *Corporation* been defined.  I went back and looked just to make sure.  Why wouldn’t they define Corporation?  What is t he Corporation???

One other note, some of the links on the original bill aren’t found by Cornell Law who is responsible for the mouse-over on the links.  There is a notation on each link which gives you a rough description of what that section means…

‘(A) providing professional development for teachers, supervisors, personnel from community-based agencies (particularly with regard to the recruitment, utilization, and management of participants), and trainers, to be conducted by qualified individuals or organizations that have experience with service-learning;

‘(B) developing service-learning curricula, consistent with State or local academic content standards, to be integrated into academic programs, including an age-appropriate learning component that provides participants an opportunity to analyze and apply their service experiences;

I can’t help but wonder just how this will apply to those children pre-school age through 3rd grade? Short of the fact that this will all be indoctrination/propaganda, (get ’em early), how exactly will these little ones be able to analyze anything? What will they be given to compare this with? I doubt that they will be given ANY opertunity to analyze anything.  And there is that word RECRUITMENT again.

‘(D) devising appropriate methods for research and evaluation of the educational value of service-learning and the effect of service-learning activities on communities;

Here they are preparing to run an experimental program that they have no idea how it will work, but they will definitely be researching what is happening and how to make it better.  The purpose of this can only be, indoctrination…

‘(E) establishing effective outreach and dissemination of information to ensure the broadest possible involvement of community-based agencies with demonstrated effectiveness in working with school-age youth in their communities; and

‘(F) establishing effective outreach and dissemination of information to ensure the broadest possible participation of schools throughout the State, with particular attention to schools identified for school improvement under title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 6301 et seq.);

Talk about putting everyone in the same box. And while I would never say that one person should get a better education than another, it is the wording, the structure of this program, that gives me the chills.  I guess all the Pentagon propaganda was just the forerunner of this program.  A testing ground to see what the feds can get away with.  This is so far outside the jurisdiction of the federal government it isn’t funny!  Congress has no authority to legislate to the individual States, and it is in the States that children live, eat, play and grow up.

The next part of the bill goes on to talk about paying the States who will then distribute the money for these programs.  It will pay for educators, recruitment, training, supervision, placement, salaries, and benefits of service-learning coordinators, through distribution of Federal funds by State educational agencies, Territories, and Indian tribes made available under this part to projects operated by local partnerships.

These partnerships will include educators, non-profit organizations which specialize in training young people, public organizations which are proficient in the provision of services to meet unmet human, education, environmental, or public safety needs.  Organizations which will make projects available to students, and have existed for at least one year and filed an application.  AND private for profit agencies which includes private elementary or secondary school, or Indian tribe except that an Indian tribe distributing funds to a project under this paragraph is not eligible to be part of the partnership operating that project.

‘(B) the recruitment, professional development, supervision, and placement of service-learning coordinators who may be participants in a program under subtitle C or receive a national service educational award under subtitle D, who may be participants in a project under section 201 of the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973 (42 U.S.C. 5001), or who may participate in a Youthbuild program under section 173A of the Workforce Investment Act of 199829 U.S.C. 2918a), (

‘(4) implementing, operating, or expanding school-based service-learning programs to utilize adult volunteers in service-learning to improve the education of students, through distribution by State educational agencies, Territories, and Indian tribes of Federal funds made available under this part to–

And then I came to a part that just blew me away.  Remember now, more and more a terrorist is defined as those who promote the Constitution, stand up for their rights, and apply for redress of grievances from the federal government.  With that said, what they HECK does this mean:

‘(5) developing civic engagement programs that promote a better understanding of–
‘(A) the principles of the Constitution, the heroes of American history (including military heroes), and the meaning of the Oath of Allegiance;
‘(B) how the Nation’s government functions; and
‘(C) the importance of service in the Nation’s character.

This just creeps me out.  Consider how Obama is wanting to change the oath that soldiers take to be made to him alone, NOT THE CONSTITUTION as it now is.  So, if we are terrorists because we believe in the Constitution, what are they going to be teaching?  It can’t be the things as I know things to be or I wouldn’t be labeled a threat as I am finding I am.  What exactly will they be changing and how?  Better yet, HOW WILL THEY INTERPRET THE CONSTITUTION??? Yes, you can call me suspicious!

‘(c) Consultation With Secretary of Education- From the amounts appropriated under section 501(a)(4), the Corporation is authorized to enter into agreements with the Secretary of Education for initiatives that may include–

Here is that as yet, undefined *Corporation*.  With as defined as this bill is, why doesn’t it define the Corporation???  And I still haven’t budged the scroll-bar on the bill.  I begin to think this bill literally goes on forever…

It goes on to say that the *Corporation* will withhold between 2 and 3 percent of its allotment of funds to pay for Indian tribes, the United States Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.  That sure sounds like a lot of ground to cover for such a small amount.

Now, I’m not a financial expert but it appears to me that the federal funding is totally inappropriate for the costs concerned in implementing this program.  Here are the actual numbers specified in the bill:

‘(d) Minimum Amount- For any fiscal year for which amounts appropriated for this subtitle exceed $50,000,000, the minimum allotment to each State (as defined in subsection (b)(2)) under this section shall be $75,000.

$75,000 dollars for this type of implementation per State?  Am I misunderstanding something here?  Isn’t that rather like I’ll pay a penny for every $1,000.00 you put in?  I must have misunderstood or States are idiots for going for this deal!!!

The next section (SEC. 113. APPLICATIONS)is all about the application process and I don’t think it needs to be covered here.  It is just how an agency or State goes about applying for the funds available and a possible reallocation of funds should a State say they would not be participating in this *plan.*  There are really only two things of note here:

‘(A) ensure that students of different ages, races, sexes, ethnic groups, disabilities, and economic backgrounds have opportunities to serve together;

‘(C) involve participants in the design and operation of the program;

It seems like while they have many of the details worked out, they have no clue where it will lead, what to expect, or how to evaluate all this.  Some plan…

Section 114 is 2 paragraphs on how they decide who is eligible or not and who gets picked for the money/program.

‘SEC. 115. PARTICIPATION OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS FROM PRIVATE SCHOOLS.  This section is all about private schools and their ability to participate including getting waivers from the Corporation!

‘(b) Waiver- If a State, Territory, Indian tribe, or local educational agency is prohibited by law from providing for the participation of students or teachers from private nonprofit schools as required by subsection (a), or if the Corporation determines that a State, Territory, Indian tribe, or local educational agency substantially fails or is unwilling to provide for such participation on an equitable basis, the Chief Executive Officer shall waive such requirements and shall arrange for the provision of services to such students and teachers. Such waivers shall be subject to the requirements of sections 9503 and 9504 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 7883 and 7884).

So, even if it is illegal for them to do so, this Corporation, can waive the requirements for this particular *agency* and they can or will still participate.  So, like it or not, unless you home school your children, they will participate come hell or high water…

‘SEC. 116. FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL CONTRIBUTIONS stipulates how much the feds will pay the first year, the second year, and the third year.  Each year declines from the original 80% the *Corporation* agrees to pay to start this farce off with.

And if your area is poor, they can waive this decrease in funds.  So, no reason for anyone not to join.  HooRah!

SEC. 117. LIMITATIONS ON USES OF FUNDS.  This section limits how much can go to pay for administrative salaries.  And, of course, the CORPORATION decides these things.

SEC. 1202. HIGHER EDUCATION PROVISIONS AND CAMPUSES OF SERVICE.  Here we have a title change for places of higher learning…

There are some interesting things going on here.  For example, the word combination is being changed to consortia.

(A) in the matter preceding paragraph (1), by striking ‘combination’ and inserting ‘consortia’;

According to Dictionary online:

Definitions of Consortia on the Web:

A consortium is an association of two or more individuals, companies, organizations or governments (or any combination of these entities) with the …

A combination or group formed in order to undertake a venture that would be beyond the resources of a single individual/company.

So, perhaps this will be a venture for multiple governments.  Yup folks, here comes the one world government in your face and brainwashing your children… Either that, or it is that non-existent North American Union we all keep hearing about.  My bet is the one world government…

Under this heading we have a lot of the same paragraphs and language we had in the elementary grade section.  There are a few differences here too though:

‘(B) including service-learning as a key component of the health professionals curricula, including nursing, pre-medicine, medicine, and dentistry curricula of the institution;

‘(C) including service-learning as a key component of the criminal justice professionals curricula of the institution;

‘(D) including service-learning as a key component of the public policy and public administration curricula of the institution; and’;

Yup, they are going to be shoving service-oriented material down your throats from pre-school through college. Little tin soldiers each and every one!  And then this part just made me want to smack someone!

‘(c) Special Consideration- To the extent practicable, the Corporation shall give special consideration to applications submitted by predominantly Black institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and community colleges serving predominantly minority populations.

Screw you if you are a Caucasian. I guess they are tired of *White* people.  Well, we don’t want to be indoctrinated now do we??

And so ends part 2 of this bill.  I’ve managed to get the cursor a tad bit farther down the scroll line, but not nearly far enough.  This monster just keeps right on going…

  1. On several websites its discussed as the ref that its mandatory as being subsection 136…yet the bill goes 133 and jumps straight to 137….so where did the other sections go?

  2. Worse yet, they have already approved this bill and it is now with the Senate. The Corporation is: Corporation for the National and Community Service I’ve called the sponsors of the bill, but they aren’t talking. They just refer you to your own Congressman or woman.
