The Weekly Sam: Before Common Core There Was Outcome Based Education

Sam Blumenfeld was one of the first to expose the deliberate dumbing down of America.  Sam named names and organization behind this crime.  Here is an interview Sam did back  in 1993 in the home of David Drye while he was on a speaking tour in North Carolina

to expose the fraud called Outcome Based Education:

 

 

 

The Battle of Lexington Reenactment 2017

For the past 18 years, I have attended  the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington that takes place on the Lexington, MA  Green on Patriots Day.  This year it fell on Monday April 17.  Over the years, I have brought family  members,  children’s friends, Camp Constitution families, and others to witness the reenactment of this important historical event.  We get up at 3:30 AM, and make the 25 minute drive to Lexington.  We make a  stop off at Peat’s to buy a cup hot chocolate,  and off to  find a good spot to view the reenactment.  After the reenactment, the Lexington Minutemen march to the Old Burying Ground where many of the Lexington Militiamen are buried to fire a volley honoring their sacrifices.  We then make out way to Wilson’s Diner in Waltham for an early breakfast, and maybe, a trip to nearby Concord to witness their reenactment and parade.  It never gets old.  My son Nathaniel videotaped this year’s reenactment and we posted it to our Youtube Channel:

 

The Weekly Sam: Eugenics and the Making of a Black Underclass

Sam Blumenfeld wrote a monthly newsletter from 1986 to 1999 which we have archived.  In my opinion, one of the most important newsletter was the June 1987 entitled “Eugenics and the Making of a Black Underclass.  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/1987/BEL%2002-06%20198706.pdf

Sam demonstrates the racist roots of the Left and the racist roots of the IQ test.  Please download the newsletter and share it widely

The Weekly Sam: The NEA Trojan Horse in American Education

Sam Blumenfeld was one of the first, if not the first, researcher to uncover the pernicious influence of the National Education Association. In 1984, he published one of his most important books exposing the NEA, The NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education.  We are happy to make it available as a free download from our Sam Blumenfled Archives:

The Weekly Sam: Moise Tshombe and Sam Blumenfeld

Sam Blumenfeld was one of the founders of “American Friends of Katanga.”  Few Americans know anything about Katanga, and the atrocities that racist United Nations’s “peacekeepers” committed against the people of the Province of Katanga which was once part of the Belgian Congo-now Zaire.   The leader of Katanga was Dr. Moise Tshombe.  He was a pro-Western, anti-communist, Christian who had the support of the people of his fledgling nation.  Sam Blumenfeld got to befriend that great man and thanks to our archives, we have made their correspondence available on line.  Here is the link from the archive: http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/Affiliations/Dr%20Moise%20Tshombe%20-%20American%20Friends%20of%20Katanga.pdf

In 1964, Sam conducted an interview of Dr. Tshombe while he was in exilce in Madrid, Spain:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/Affiliations/Moise%20Tshombe%20Interview.pdf

The atrocities that were committed by the United Nations continue to this day.  This is why we need to Get out of the United Nations.

 

 

 

 

 

The Weekly Sam: Sam Blumenfeld and Rudolf Flesch, author of “Why Johnny Can’t Read.”

Sam Blumenfeld dedicated his life to teaching people of all ages how to be good readers via intensive phonics.  While he was an editor for Grosset and Dunlop in the early 1960s,  he was asked be a friend, Watson Washburn, a conservative New York attorney, if he would join his reading foundation.  Sam was initially perplexed since he didn’t know that there was a reading problem.  He thought that practically everyone knew how to read.  Mr. Washburn suggested that he read “Why Johnny Can’t Read” by Rudolf  Flesch.    Sam befriended  the author of the book, Rudolf Flesch, and we have archives some of their correspondence.  It is interesting to note that Mr. Flesch called himself a “Viennese Socialist.”   A link to their corrresponsdence:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/Other/Rudolf%20Flesh%20-%20American%20Literacy.pdf

The Weekly Sam: How the Communists Created the Neo-Nazi Movement in the United States

Back in the early 1960s, Sam Blumenfeld worked as an editor for “American Opinion” magazine and Western Island Publications.  He was asked by Robert Welch to write a book about how the Communists created the Neo-Nazi movement in the United States. Mr. Welch did not like the manuscript, and it was never published.  Sam handed  me the original manuscript about six years ago, and gave Camp Constitution  the permission to publish it.  After Sam’s death, we found several incomplete manuscripts concerning George Lincoln Rockwell and the American Nazi Party.  Sam event had a collection of the group’s newsletters.  Camp Constitution Press has not, as of yet. published the book, but we make the manuscript available on the Sam Blumenfeld Archives.  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/Manuscripts/How%20the%20Left%20created%20the

Camp Constitution Introduces “The Weekly Sam”-Items from the Sam Blumenfeld Archives

Camp Constitution will begin “The Weekly Sam” to promote the camp’s Blumenfeld Archives http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/

Sam Blumenfeld was a pioneer in the homeschool movement.  He dedicated his life to teaching people of all ages how to be excellent readers, to encourage parents to homeschool, or start their own private schools, and to expose the organizations and people determined to create a functionally illiterate America.  Sam used the term “deliberately dumbing down” to describe what was going on in the government schools, and unlike many of his contemporaries, he wasn’t afraid to say it was happening on purpose.   Sam passed away in June of 2015, but he left Camp Constitution a great legacy:  his library and papers.  Thanks to Camp Constitution’s newspaper editor, Mark Afflick, Mr. Eric Conover, the camp’s webmaster, and  Mr. Bill McNally of the Samuel L.  Blumenfeld Literacy Foundation, Camp Constitution has archived much of his great work for generations to come.

Each week we will feature items from the archives.  This week, we are featuring what we believe was his greatest work:  His “Alpha-Phonics” workbook with all 128 lessons in either audio or video.  There is no need to spend hundreds of dollars on reading kits or programs.  All you need to do his access our Sam Blumenfeld archives and begin using Sam’s “Alpha-Phonics” to teach your child to be highly literate.   Here is a link to his Alpha-Phonics:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/alphaphonics/index.htm  The archives and all of our on-line resources are free to the public, but we can use your help promote these archives and our overall mission.  Readers can make an on-line donation via PayPal from our website’s home  page http://campconstitution.net/

George Washington

Today is “Presidents Day but it use to be known exclusively as George Washington’s Birthday.  We want to honor the memory of this gream man and have posted his “First Inaugural Address” which he gave on April 30, 1789:

Fellow Citizens of the Senate and the House of Representatives: Among the vicissitudes incident to life, no event could have filled me with greater anxieties than that of which the notification was transmitted by your order, and received on the fourteenth day of the present month. On the one hand, I was summoned by my Country, whose voice I can never hear but with veneration and love, from a retreat which I had chosen with the fondest predilection, and, in my flattering hopes, with an immutable decision, as the asylum of my declining years: a retreat which was rendered every day more necessary as well as more dear to me, by the addition of habit to inclination, and of frequent interruptions in my health to the gradual waste committed on it by time. On the other hand, the magnitude and difficulty of the trust to which the voice of my Country called me, being sufficient to awaken in the wisest and most experienced of her citizens, a distrustful scrutiny into his qualification, could not but overwhelm with dispondence, one, who, inheriting inferior endowments from nature and unpractised in the duties of civil administration, ought to be peculiarly conscious of his own deficencies.

In this conflict of emotions, all I dare aver, is, that it has been my faithful study to collect my duty from a just appreciation of every circumstance, by which it might be affected. All I dare hope, is, that, if in executing this task I have been too much swayed by a grateful remembrance of former instances, or by an affectionate sensibility to this transcendent proof, of the confidence of my fellow-citizens; and have thence too little consulted my incapacity as well as disinclination for the weighty and untried cares before me; my error will be palliated by the motives which misled me, and its consequences be judged by my Country, with some share of the partiality in which they originated. Such being the impressions under which I have, in obedience to the public summons, repaired to the present station; it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that his benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the People of the United States, a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes: and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success, the functions allotted to his charge. In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own; nor those of my fellow-citizens at large, less than either.

No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States. Every step, by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency. And in the important revolution just accomplished in the system of their United Government, the tranquil deliberations and voluntary consent of so many distinct communities, from which the event has resulted, cannot be compared with the means by which most Governments have been established, without some return of pious gratitude along with an humble anticipation of the future blessings which the past seem to presage. These reflections, arising out of the present crisis, have forced themselves too strongly on my mind to be 2 suppressed. You will join with me I trust in thinking, that there are none under the influence of which, the proceedings of a new and free Government can more auspiciously commence.

By the article establishing the Executive Department, it is made the duty of the President “to recommend to your consideration, such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.” The circumstances under which I now meet you, will acquit me from entering into that subject, farther than to refer to the Great Constitutional Charter under which you are assembled; and which, in defining your powers, designates the objects to which your attention is to be given. It will be more consistent with those circumstances, and far more congenial with the feelings which actuate me, to substitute, in place of a recommendation of particular measures, the tribute that is due to the talents, the rectitude, and the patriotism which adorn the characters selected to devise and adopt them. In these honorable qualifications, I behold the surest pledges, that as on one side, no local prejudices, or attachments; no seperate views, nor party animosities, will misdirect the comprehensive and equal eye which ought to watch over this great assemblage of communities and interests: so, on another, that the foundations of our National policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality; and the pre-eminence of a free Government, be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its Citizens, and command the respect of the world. I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my Country can inspire: since there is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness, between duty and advantage, between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people. Besides the ordinary objects submitted to your care, it will remain with your judgment to decide, how far an exercise of the occasional power delegated by the Fifth article of the Constitution is rendered expedient at the present juncture by the nature of objections which have been urged against the System, or by the degree of inquietude which has given birth to them. Instead of undertaking particular recommendations on this subject, in which I could be guided by no lights derived from official opportunities, I shall again give way to my entire confidence in your discernment and pursuit of the public good: For I assure myself that whilst you carefully avoid every alteration which might endanger the benefits of an United and effective Government, or which ought to await the future lessons of experience; a reverence for the characteristic rights of freemen, and a regard for the public harmony, will sufficiently influence your deliberations on the question how far the former can be more impregnably fortified, or the latter be safely and advantageously promoted. To the preceeding observations I have one to add, which will be most properly addressed to the House of Representatives.

It concerns myself, and will therefore be as brief as possible. When I was first honoured with a call into the Service of my Country, then on the eve of an arduous 3 struggle for its liberties, the light in which I contemplated my duty required that I should renounce every pecuniary compensation. From this resolution I have in no instance departed. And being still under the impressions which produced it, I must decline as inapplicable to myself, any share in the personal emoluments, which may be indispensably included in a permanent provision for the Executive Department; and must accordingly pray that the pecuniary estimates for the Station in which I am placed, may, during my continuance in it, be limited to such actual expenditures as the public good may be thought to require. Having thus imparted to you my sentiments, as they have been awakened by the occasion which brings us together, I shall take my present leave; but not without resorting once more to the benign parent of the human race, in humble supplication that since he has been pleased to favour the American people, with opportunities for deliberating in perfect tranquility, and dispositions for deciding with unparellelled unanimity on a form of Government, for the security of their Union, and the advancement of their happiness; so his divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views, the temperate consultations, and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend.
