The U. S. Department of Energy was formed on August 8, 1977 by President Jimmy Carter. On October 17, 1979 the U. S. Department of Education was formed by President Carter. If anything, we are more dependent on foreign oil now than in 1977. We have no obvious energy policy other than to block the use of our own natural resources. Our public schools are a disaster; education of our children has declined while propagandizing for a one-world order, socialist agenda has permeated every level beginning in elementary and culminating in our nation’s universities.
Just how dangerous is the Department of Education?
In the spring of 2010, it was widely reported that the U. S. Department of Education was purchasing 27 Model 870 police 12-gauge shotguns to be assigned to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). When numerous queries came in asking why the U. S. Department of Education required, or would even want, 27 shotguns with 14-inch barrels, they published the following:
“The Office of Inspector General is the law enforcement arm of the U.S. Department of Education and is responsible for the detection of waste, fraud, abuse, and other criminal activity involving Federal education funds, programs, and operations. As such, OIG operates with full statutory law enforcement authority, which includes conducting search warrants, making arrests, and carrying firearms.”
On June 7th, federal agents of the OIG served a search warrant on the home of Kenneth Wright in Stockton, CA. If that sounds innocuous, it was anything but.
About 15 federal agents broke down his door at 6AM, put him in handcuffs, grabbed him by the back of the neck and removed him from his home. Mr. Wright, who was only in his undershorts, was forced to the ground in his front yard. While he was held down with a knee in his back, the agents woke up his 3 children, ages 3, 7 and 11. Mr. Wright and his children were placed in a patrol car for 6 hours while the house was searched. The kids were traumatized and Mr. Wright, who has no criminal record, was humiliated.
It is reported that the OIG was looking for Wright’s estranged wife who does not reside at the residence. Justin Hamilton, a spokesman for the U. S. Department of Education refused to say specifically why the raid took place.
It is frightening enough that the Department of Homeland Security can terrorize law abiding citizens with impunity. Now it is the Department of Education!
