The Weekly Sam: How Liberals Have Made Public Education A Criminal Enterprise

The link below is for one of Sam’s unpublished manuscript from 2013.  He ended up collaborating with Alex Newman to publish Crimes of the Educators in 2014-Sam’s last book before his death in 2015

This is the forward from the book:

Progressive utopians are criminals! They are genocidal psychopaths who have killed more
human beings in the last 100 years than any other ideologues in history. They don’t limit their
murder just to individuals, but to entire nations, as in National Socialist Germany’s war of
extermination against the Jews, the Soviet Union’s war against anti-communists, Cambodia’s
slaughter of the educated middle class, and communist China’s cultural war. And all of this was
done in the name of creating a new utopian society. In the United States the socialist utopians
adopted a new and unique method of destroying a nation: by dumbing it down, by destroying
the brain power of millions of its citizens.

The plan to dumb down America was launched in 1898 by socialist fanatic John Dewey in an
essay entitled The Primary Education Fetich. In it he showed his fellow progressives how to
transform America into a collectivist utopia by taking over the public schools and destroying the
literacy of millions of Americans. The plan has been so successfully implemented that it is now
a fact that half the adult population of America are functionally illiterate. They can’t read their
nation’s Constitution or its Declaration of Independence. They can’t read their high school

The method of achieving this was by simply changing the way children are taught to read in
their schools. The utopians got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction
and imposed a look-say, whole-word method that forces children to read English as if it were
Chinese. The method is widely in use in today’s public schools, which is why the American
public education system now consists of failing schools that cannot teach children the basics.
This can only be considered a blatant and sadistic form of child abuse.

And this abuse escapes detection because of the cleverness and deception of the perpetrators.
In his essay, Dewey warned his colleagues about being too hasty. “Change must come
gradually,” he wrote. “To force it unduly would compromise its final success by favoring a
violent reaction.” In other words, deception would have to be used in order for their plan to be
successfully implemented. They learned quickly how to deceive trusting parents and taxpayers.

They also learned how to manipulate politicians. They also knew that the children would be
powerless to resist their abuse. And teachers have been taught to blame academic failure on
the children and not themselves. Indeed, many of them revel in the idea that they are
transforming America to suit their own social interests.
Of course, most teachers are unaware that they are complicit in this evil conspiracy. They
simply do what they were taught to do by their professors of education. Few become aware
that their professors deceived them and prepared them to create failure. Most of these
teachers are as much victims of the system as the students they are teaching.

The purpose of this book is to expose the kind of crimes that are being committed every day
against American children and the nation in the name of education. Most parents trust the
public schools because they are supposed to represent the cherished values of our democratic
republic. But the unhappy truth is that today’s public schools have rejected the values of the
Founding Fathers and adopted values from 19th century European social utopians that
completely contradict our own concepts of individual freedom.
What are the crimes being perpetrated by the educators against America and its children? The
first most serious crime is Treason. In April 1983, The National Commission on Excellence in
Education said in its final report, A Nation at Risk:

If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre
educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of
war. As it stands, we have allowed this to happen to ourselves.

In other words, our educators are engaged in a deliberate dumbing down of America, of
sabotaging the intellectual growth of our children, and depriving Americans of the most
productive use of their own lives. This is a criminal act of war against the American people and
should be called what it is:


The deliberate dumbing down of an entire nation is genocidal in its impact on that nation’s
culture and intellectual future. No group of educators should have been permitted to impose
on American schools a program that is the antithesis of true education. But when deception is
practiced on the scale that is beyond public understanding, it becomes a crime as specific as
perjury under oath.

A second serious crime is child abuse by deliberately inflicting physical harm on a child’s brain
by using teaching methods designed to produce dyslexia and learning disabilities. Brain scans
now prove beyond a doubt that the sight, or whole-word, method of teaching reading creates
dyslexia and functional illiteracy by forcing children to use their right brains to perform the
functions of their left brains. Deliberately impairing a child’s brain ought to be a punishable

A third serious crime is contributing to the delinquency of a minor by teaching pornographic sex
education and “alternative” lifestyles that lead to pre-marital sex, venereal disease, and
unwanted pregnancies. More children are now born out of wedlock than ever before, creating
one of America’s most serious social problems. More American children are living in poverty
because of their parents adopting an irresponsible lifestyle based on liberal morality.

A fourth serious crime is destroying a child’s belief in biblical religion, a moral crime that leads
children into secular humanism, atheism, nihilism, and Satanism which can result in self destructive, murderous behavior. School shootings, massacres, arson, teen suicide, student depression, self-destructive behavior are the result of a school curriculum that denies the
existence of God and His loving protection.

A fifth serious crime is that of pushing drugs on millions of children by promoting the use of
powerful mind altering drugs such as Ritalin or Adderall, which are as potent as cocaine, to
alleviate such school-induced disorders as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention
Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). Some of these drugs have even caused sudden deaths
among athletic teens.

A sixth serious crime is extortion, by defrauding taxpayers of billions of dollars in the name of
school improvement and reform which never take place. The money is used by the educators to
buy more miseducation. The present reform movement is promoting the implementation of
Common Core Standards, which will not improve education but cost the taxpayers billions of
dollars. You cannot have high standards without high literacy, and high literacy has no place in
the new curriculum.

How do you deal with such criminality? First you have to be aware that it is taking place. Then
you must make your political leaders aware of what is going on in the schools. Most political
leaders wear blinders when dealing with education. For example, when it comes to
reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, our Washington legislators
tinker with its many titles in the hope that somehow education can be improved. But what
they fail to understand is that what goes on in the schools is based on an agenda that

Progressive utopians put in place decades ago and have no intention of deviating from it. Only a
massive outcry by an awakened public will force our state and national legislators to recognize
the crimes taking place in the name of education and put a stop to them.
There is no doubt that what goes on today in the public schools of America are criminal
activities of such a serious nature that millions of American children suffer their consequences
for their entire lives. We all recognize obvious child abuse when we see it. But the kind of
abuse that goes on in our schools escapes detection because of the cleverness and deception of
the perpetrators. Indeed, it is easier to believe a credible lie than an incredible truth.

Our educational leaders have learned how to deceive parents and the taxpaying public and get
away with it. They know that the children are powerless to resist their abuse. And they know
how to blame academic failure on the children and not themselves. Indeed, they revel in the
idea that they are transforming America to suit their own social interests. Only an enlightened
public will be able to put a stop to this degradation of American education.
