Want to See the New Face of the Cherry Creek School District High Schools?


Just because your tax dollars are paying for every book, every building, every salary, every pen, every video projector….everything that is in out public schools, don’t ever think that you, as a tax payer own them.

If you doubt this, Carla Stearns, the new Director of High School Education for the Cherry Creek School District will clear that up for you.

According to Carla Stearns, parents are not allowed to enter school facilities. You must have an appointment. But, here is the Catch 22; if you don’t have an appointment, you can’t enter but you can’t get an appointment cause no one will say they can set an appointment for you.

For those of you with your heads on straight, you already know we own those facilities and the people that work in them are our employees. They may think they work for the District but they work for us. Plain and simple.

Cherry Creek School District Policies KI and KI-R read as follows:

The Board of Education encourages parents/guardians and other citizens of the district to visit classrooms, activities and functions to observe the work of the schools. The Board believes that there is no better way for the public to learn what the schools are actually involved in and doing.

But, of course, Carla Stearns and other, like-minded bureaucrats in the district have absolutely no interest in your learning about what the schools are actually involved in and doing. In fact, secrecy and cover-up is the order.

And they will pick and choose the policies they want to follow.

The only conditions restricting an individual’s right to view the facilities is when that individual is causing a danger or disruption and such was not the case in the parent’s visit in the video, above.

If you look quick in the upper left of the video, as it starts, you will see one librarian. The parent was already there as a regular volunteer in the school store, and was concerned when her daughter came home with an adult book, containing inappropriate material.

There was not one single child in the library.

The parent called Barnes and Nobel and asked if they had this particular book on the children’s shelf in the store and she was told “Absolutely not. It is not appropriate for this age group”. Yet, once again, the Cherry Creek School District makes the obvious bad choice in favor of inappropriate material to children.

As Huck Finn was oft heard to say, “I could see it warn’t no use in arguin”, so the parent left, with no disruption.

This is the face of the modern educator. A petty tyrant that has no interest in responding to questions asked by her employers….the tax payers that pay her salary.


Why Is No One Interested in the Whereabouts of John Kennedy?

Last August, the Cherry Creek School District was rocked by allegations that 2 District employees had been arrested and charged with the sexual assault of a minor. Following this, three Middle School Administrators were indicted for failing to report the abuse.

In one of the cases, the perpetrator, a man by the name of Brodderick Lundie, managed to have his name withheld from the District community for 4 months, presumably because of Superintendent Bull’s personal relationship with Lundie’s father.

Bad as that was, the 2nd episode of assault involved a Middle School teacher at Prairie Middle School who was charge with 31 counts of assault on a minor!

Following that, three Prairie School Administrators were indicted with failing to report the abuse of a minor.

Whether he will admit it or not, Harry Bull’s “retirement” announcement seems a direct result of these incidents and his failure to protect the children of this district. He will be gone and good riddance to him.

However, there is another high-level District administrator that has disappeared very quietly, like a puff of smoke in a breeze; John Kennedy.

Where is John Kennedy? There was no announcement regarding his separation from his job as the Executive Director of Middle Schools (remember, Prairie is a Middle school). There was no announcement of his retirement. There was no announcement of any reassignment. There was nothing but a unremarked and little noticed change of leadership in the Middle Schools from John Kennedy to Tracy Grant.

More curious yet is the glaring lack of interest anyone has in finding out what happened to Kennedy.

When you call the District to find out what has happened to Kennedy, you are told, variously, that he is “on leave”, that he “is on administrative leave”, that they don’t know where he is.

Communications to the district Communications Director, Abbe Smith, finally confirm that he is on leave due to “a personnel matter”.

Pressed, by a request under the Colorado Open Records Act, to clarify the nature and circumstances surrounding this “Administrative Leave”, Ms. Smith responds with spurious assertions of “attorney-client privilege”. Since John Kennedy is not represented, legally, by the district, there is no privilege to be claimed.

Further communications to Abbe Smith elicit the response that she misspoke and that John Kennedy is now being represented by his own attorney. Why? What does Mr. Kennedy need an attorney for?

A clue might be in a memo received by the District in response to a CORA request. This memo, dated last August, discusses the need for a replacement for John Kennedy at a regular meeting. The implication is, of course, that John Kennedy has been gone from the District since last August.

Let’s see? What happened last August that might have resulted in the placing of John Kennedy on Administrative leave?

Well, could it be the assault committed by the degenerate Brian Vasquez on the children of Prairie Middle School?

Could it be that these assaults triggered a series of events culminating in the indictments of Prairie Middle School administrators Dave Gonzales, Adrienne McIntosh, and Cheryl Somers?

It’s speculation, of course, as Kennedy’s removal might have nothing to with the sexual assaults on our children, or the failure to protect them, or the cover-up of the initial incident 5 years earlier.

This information has been supplied to metro news agencies. No apparent interest.

The District is stonewalling any further requests for the specifics around why John Kennedy is on Administrative Leave. They are required to provide this information but are blocking, delaying, and, frankly, bull-shitting around having to provide the basic information as to why John Kennedy is on Administrative Leave.

Why are local news organizations not pursuing this? Why is a shroud of secrecy being allowed to descend over this issue.

Harry Bull’s convenient announcement of his retirement, just hours before the Prairie Middle School indictments were announced, screams “cut and run”.

John Kennedy’s magical disappearance is worse. It is as if the man is a ghost; never worked for the District, don’t know who he is, or where he has gone.

Time to get the full story on why John Kennedy and the Cherry Creek School District have parted company. There has been enough secrecy in this District and, with Harry Bull gone, it is time to lift the shades and shine a light on what is happening. The community has a right to know.


Where Is John Kennedy?

In the wake of the Cherry Creek Sex Assault scandals, there have been some interesting developments.

In the hours before the indictments handed out to Prairie Middle School administrators David Gonzales (Principal of Prairie Middle School), Adrienne McIntosh (Vice Principal), and Chery Somers (Counsellor) for failing to report child abuse, the Cherry Creek Superintendent, Harry Bull, issued a letter to the district, announcing his retirement.

Obviously, any thinking person would be extremely skeptical regarding the timing of Mr. Bull’s announcement, as well they should be. What connection can Mr. Bull have to these events that might have pushed him into retirement? I mean, you just have to wonder, don’t you?

All I can say about this is, good riddance. The man is a disgrace. He has placed his own personal ambitions and agenda over the well-being of children.

Quietly, however, another senior administrator has slipped from the scene.

What has become of Executive Director of Middle School Education, John Kennedy?

John Kennedy (should I call him “Doctor” Kennedy?) was the point person when parents complained about explicit and violent pornography being made available in the Middle School (and other levels) EBSCO data bases.

John Kennedy (really, should I call him “Doctor” Kennedy?) not liking what he heard, threatened the parents and told them not to talk about the issue, or “something will happen that neither you, or I will like”.

John Kennedy is no longer in his position of Executive Director and, depending on who you ask, he has either been “terminated”, “let go”, “is on administrative leave”, or simply, “we don’t know where he is”.

John Kennedy was the point man during a substantial period of time when Brian Vasquez was assaulting the children in Prairie Middle School and during the ongoing cover-up of the initial assault on the 14 year old female student at Prairie Middle School 5 years ago, when the girl was forced to recant her accusation against her molester, Brian Vasquez.

John Kennedy is now gone and we do not lament his disappearance. We are, however, very interested in the circumstances of his disappearance. Why is John Kennedy gone? Where has John Kennedy gone? What are the circumstances around his going?

We have sent CORA requests to Abbe Smith, the Communications Director for the District and have been stonewalled. Why would this be?

Our Schools and EBSCO: The Sexual Grooming of Our Children

Recently, our Cherry Creek School District has been rocked by the sexual assaults by teachers on children and the cover-up of these assaults.

Just a few days ago, the Killip Elementary School in Flagstaff Arizona has experienced the same community trauma; A teacher accused of molesting 2 elementary school children.

Now, there are similarities between these 2 cases and the 2 school districts:

  1. The obvious, they both have experienced the sexual assault of a teacher on a child.
  2. Both provide teachers and children access to the EBSCO databases rife with pornography.
  3. The schools helpfully provide children with the warning and disclaimer that they are leaving the schools web site and. therefore, the school bears no responsibility for anything that might happen.

If you are new to this issue, just do a search on “EBSCO porn” and you will see that the EBSCO research databases provided to children in our schools is full of pornography and ads for sex toys.

It certainly seems that the Killip Elementary School and the Flagstaff School District are aware of this, otherwise why is there a need for the disclaimer?

Disclaimer: Some of the links on this site will require that you leave our FUSD School website and the FUSD server. The Flagstaff Unified School District has no responsibility for the content beyond this point. The Internet is a dynamic volatile place where pages can change suddenly and rapidly. It is not unusual to find information or images that are objectionable. Proceed at your own risk, it is always best to review sites with your child.

First, the concept of a minor child waving any of their rights, or understanding the implications of this “disclaimer” is laughable. Clearly, the district hopes that this will protect them if things go wrong but this hope is delusional.

Obviously, since these links are provided by the school, and no doubt promoted by the school as a place to get homework or other help, children will access these resources from their homes, by-passing any school filters.

Second, EBSCO (and other database resources provided to schools) is a proprietary database, and cannot be filtered by the school’s or library’s filters; it is just not possible.

Third, these databases are not “the internet”. They are closed, subscription only resources which are separate from “the internet” and only EBSCO can filter them.

Finally, while many pages will change, some will come and others go, the existence of pornography within these EBSCO resources has always existed. The point is, it is not any one page, either its existence, or non-existence, that is the issue; it is that pornography is fully and readily available to children within these EBSCO databases.

To illustrate, here is a sampling of the material available in the NoveListPlus product, supplied by EBSCO. Remember, this is being made available to Elementary School children!

  • From the Streets to the Sheets: Urban Erotic Quickies

  • Nasty Boys: Rough Trade Erotica

  • The Bad Seed

  • Unzipped

  • The Love Slave

Why in God’s name would anyone ever think this was appropriate material for an elementary school aged child; or any minor child, for that matter?

Whether intended or not, the availability of pornography to children has the effect of desensitizing children, as well as adults, to themes and images of sexual assault, violent assault, sad-masochism, bondage, sexual humiliation and other deviant forms of sexual relations. There is no credible pediatric therapist, psychiatrist, or physician that would think this is OK. Apparently, the Flagstaff Unified School District and Michele Reagan (Secretary of State and responsible for the AZ State Library) think it is just fine.

Does Michele Reagan really want her name and face, or the Arizona State Library, associated to purveyors of pornography?

Is it any surprise, then, having created a sexualized and distorted atmosphere around the adult/child relationship, that adults act on impulses that, for most people, would be abhorrent? The schools, with their partners at EBSCO, have created this environment and are responsible for the results we are all seeing with increasing frequency.

It is time for the schools and the state to take a stand and protect our children from the assaults of EBSCO and the vendors of the pornography and sex toys that fill its databases.

The Legacy Of Harry Bull and the Cherry Creek School Board- A Cancer in the District

For months, people have been trying to get the attention of the CCSD School Board and that of Harry Bull regarding their lack of concern regarding the availability of pornography in the school EBSCO and other database resources.

Repeated and continuous attempts have been made to sound the alarm that there is something wrong with adults that do not see a problem with presenting graphic and dehumanizing images, sex toy advertisements, and videos to our school children. With good intent, our failure has been that we have focused on a symptom of the problem and missed the problem itself. It is clear from the recent arrests, of the perpetrators and of their administrative enablers, that the true nature and extent of the problem is beginning to emerge.

All of the so called “Doctors” in the district, who we have given the privilege of educating our children, have failed them. They have created, through some twisted ideology, a system that sexualizes our children and grooms them for the advances and predations of their peers. They have fostered a disease that has spread throughout our community like a cancer and they all bear responsibility for what has occurred.

In many, many school board meetings they were warned that their failure to protect our children would have consequences. Reference was made to the news stories out of the Los Angeles School District and its club of pedophiles. They were told that the rising incidence of sexual assaults against children was a natural consequence of sexualizing these children and of objectifying them in the perverted minds of some twisted adults. They were warned and now, here we are.

The recent arrests of district employees are no doubt the tip of the iceberg and they beg the question, what kind club are they running in this district? Why do teachers and even school board members, such as Dave Willman, have private Instagram and Twitter accounts that they share with children? Why is one Overland School Club being followed by a porn site? These things are completely unacceptable and the district’s failure to see and address these issues indicates something fundamentally corrupt.

No teacher, no district employee, no school board member should EVER have a private account of any kind that they share with children. No school or district club should ever allow a porn site to follow them or be following a porn site. What are you people thinking? Again, what kind of club are you running here?

I am convinced that in the weeks to come, there will be further allegations, perhaps additional charges. There are others that knew what was going on in this district.

In the off-chance that all of you “Doctors” in the district missed it, it is no coincidence that Harry Bull announced his retirement mere hours before the scandal at Prairie Middle School broke in the news. Do you really believe that Principal David Gonzalez, Assistant Principal Adrienne MacIntosh, and counselor Cheryl Somers all knew about Brian Vasquez but, somehow, Mr. Bull did not? If you do believe this, you possess a level of simple mindedness that precludes you being employed as any sort of an Educator.

It seems painfully obvious that simple common sense is not conferred with a Doctorate in Education.

Mr. Bull, you are a coward. You have attempted to avoid any of the blow-back that is sure to develop over the next several weeks by “skipping town”, so to speak. A better man would have accepted responsibility for his failures and made the determination to stamp out the problem and protect our children. You, unfortunately, are just a rank opportunist. I, certainly, do not thank you for your service to this community.

You have presided over a corruption of our children and their teachers that borders on the criminal.

You have placed the safety of our children as a distant second to your personal ambitions and self-interest.

You have covered up and hidden the most grievous of assaults on our kids.

You have abetted the disgraceful treatment of one of the victims by punishing her for the evil actions of her pedophile tormentor.

You have engaged in a program of disinformation designed to keep the parents of this community in the dark regarding the corruption in this district.

You should be ashamed of yourself but I fear you are not. Why would you be, at every board meeting you have a room full of sycophants all telling you how great you are.

Can any one of you “educators” imagine what you have done to the 14 year-old child that came to you for help regarding the assaults on her by Brain Vasquez, only to find that she was being made responsible and Vasquez made the victim? What kind of a twisted world do you all live in? In my opinion, this child’s civil rights have been violated in a grievous manner and the FBI should be investigating this district for a pattern of such abuses.

Given what I have seen at school board meetings over the past months, you will all no doubt take comfort in knowing that these Prairie Middle School administrators have only been charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony. I am not a lawyer but I cannot understand why they have not been charged as accessories after the fact as well as accessories before the fact, and with obstruction of justice. All 3 of these people knew about the actions of Brian Vasquez 4 years ago and engaged in an active campaign to force the 14 year old victim to recant her story and then they suspended her.


If this isn’t abetting Vasquez’s subsequent assaults and obstructing the course of justice, I don’t know what is.

In her letter to the parents of the Prairie Middle School community, Director of Middle Schools, Tracy Grant, closed by saying, “As always, the safety and security of our students is our highest priority”. What a sad, sad joke.

Ms. Grant will remember that approximately 10 years ago, she was informed that teachers at the Fox Ridge Middle School were displaying pornography to children in the class. This is on record. The safety of our children seems to be far from any priority with this school district.

Finally, it is instructive to remember that Mr. Bull, following the revelations of the Lundy and Vasquez sexual assaults, issued a memorandum on Sept 17, 2017 to all schools that any police investigations or any disciplinary actions against an employee, which are documented in writing, would now be required to be reported to the district HR department.

Obviously, then, prior to the sexual assault cases of Lundy and Vasquez, schools we NOT required to report misconduct issues. Why is this? Could it be, that not having these allegations on record with the district would allow the district plausible deniability, should the offense come to light? Do you need a Phd in Education to figure this one out?

And why does Mr. Bull so carefully couch his words that, in order to report an incident to the district, there must be a police investigation and/or a written reprimand. I would submit that ANY allegation against an employee must be reported to the district, recorded as an incident, investigated at the district level and resolved as substantiated or unsubstantiated. To do anything else provides just another opportunity for the district to deny knowledge and accountability……. and accountability is exactly what has been lacking under the mis-stewardship of Harry Bull.

Mr. Bull also goes to pains to specify that, in regard to a sexual misconduct allegation, they are to be reported only when it involves children outside the workplace. Children within the workplace are, apparently, fair game and these assaults need not be reported. It is all perfectly clear how the district values our children.

Harry Bull and the Cherry Creek Board of Education have been grossly derelict in their duty to our children. It is clear that they consider the district and its schools a personal playground to pursue their own agendas.



The St. Stephens Episcopal School in Bradenton, Florida is advertising sex toys to kids using school sponsored technology and databases.

The St. Stephens logo appears on numerous sex toys ads, and some even offer up live links to the students for further information…

St. Stephens is directing children through its school library to so called “scholastic” databases that are streaming a myriad of advertisements, some in full color, with graphic descriptions, and some with embedded live links for kids to get even more information or make purchases…

St. Stephens Episcopal School is also streaming ads for adult books, BDSM materials…

and advertisements for Hard Core Porn sites, such as Nympho Ninjas, (above), urging students to “Do Some Homework… Read, Watch and Play…”

How Does St. Stephens Promote Sex Ads to Students?

Using School sponsored technology. Through the school library.  St. Stephens is one of many Episcopal schools around the country that have subscribed to the popular, EBSCO “scholastic ” databases.

EBSCO collaborates with several mega-publishing clients, like Hearst Publishing, Conde Nast, and others, who enjoy highly profitable relationships with their Sex Toy Advertising Partners, such as Dame, Babeland, Good Vibrations and numerous others.

Hearst Partners with EBSCO Information Services to Expand the Marketplace for their Sex Toy Advertisers

Brilliant marketing executives (or some might call them evil geniuses…) have figured out how to expand their marketing block into America’s schools.  Most of the EBSCO databases are locked down behind passwords that only students are issued, not their parents.

Why are Adult Magazines Streaming into K-12 “Homework” Databases?


In fact, EBSCO school databases, which are advertised as “scholastic” and age appropriate are notorious for streaming adult, “pop culture” magazines into schools. One of EBSCO’s biggest publishing partners, Hearst, streams Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Esquire, Marie Claire, and other pop magazines which prolifically advertise for the 15 billion dollar Sex Toy Industry.

Conde Nast streams Glamour, Allure and the infamous, Teen Vogue (remember the “How to Have Anal Sex” scandal from last summer?), to name a few. Others include, Lesbian News, and the Canadian, Rogers Media, which stream a myriad of advertisements for their Sex Toy advertising partners directly into EBSCO school databases.

EBSO values these relationships and is on record stating their “non-censorship” commitment to their valuable publishing clients. Hearst and others stream whatever they want into EBSCO school products. EBSCO sells the databases to the schools. The schools direct their students to use them for “research”. The ads and other obscene articles are positioned to float to the top of almost any search our group has tried and they cannot be filtered because they are proprietary.

The 15 billion dollar Sex Toy Industry has grown exponentially over the past few years and will apparently stop at nothing, including the marketing of adult products to school children under the guise of age-appropriate scholastic products.

EBSCO appears to be fully complicit in this assault on school children, this family owned company having positioned itself to become part and parcel of the 95 billion dollar sex industry – and, despite being named to the Dirty Dozen list by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation almost a full year ago, EBSCO continues to falsely advertise their school products as “age appropriate” and “relevant”…

Parents, and many unsuspecting teachers also, are lulled into trusting their school administrators and librarians. They have been told to send kids to the “scholastic databases” to work on class projects.

St. Stephens and other schools around the country appear to be leaving parents in the dark about child safety, while placing profit and politics ahead of accountability to the communities they serve.










Look No Further Than Your Schools to Find Pennywise the Clown

Last month, in the days approaching Thanksgiving, the parents of Ashawnty Davis had little to be thankful for. Instead, an absolute tragedy engulfed their lives and their family would never be the same; not ever again.

Ashawnty, 10 years old,  TEN YEARS OLD, killed herself; committed suicide; ended her life.

I look at the pictures of this beautiful little girl and her joyous smile and it breaks my heart. It should break the heart of any parent.

How did this happen?

The suicide rate among school children has sky rocketed in Colorado and we have to ask ourselves why, before we can ever hope to implement any effective policy.

In medicine, all physicians are taught, “First, do no harm”. This concept needs to be embraced by our schools and by education companies selling new products and gimmicks into our schools, with little regard for the effect it might have on students.

Our schools are bloated with every form of Health and Wellness programming  being given to our kids; the so-called Signs of Suicide training for children (SOS); Depression screens and surveys; access to the odious Trevor Project, with it’s enticements into private chat rooms and suicide discussions; schools that provide access to the revolting book 13 Reasons Why. This book, with it discussions of why suicide might be an option and why, through suicide, a child’s status might even be elevated in the community, should never be on a school library bookshelf.

This cheer squad for suicide is listed as being in the library catalog of this little girl’s school (Sunrise Elementary School). I’m not a big fan of censorship but placing this book into an elementary school, where this child attended, might be one of the worst librarian decisions ever encountered. What is wrong with the librarian at this school? This isn’t a book for elementary school children and all of your ALA mindless drivel about the 1st Amendment and censorship doesn’t change that fact. I certainly see that where there is any criticism posted regarding  how a library is being run, it disappears after a day.  So stop being such hypocrites! You’re all for censorship, as long as you are the censors.

Librarians have been given far too much authority in the present climate. High level administrators bow down to the so called Library Leadership Teams… these are librarians… who are making dangerous decisions without any questioning or oversight.

Suicide in children was, at one time, very rare. Why would a child of 10 even think of suicide? Where did the idea come from? This is a concept that used to live almost exclusively in the tormented minds of adults. How did it ever become a consideration and an option for children?

Over the past 20 years, as our children have progressed through the Cherry Creek School District, we have seen an increasing focus (read spending), generated by school districts and education charlatans selling emotional poison, on programs to address bullying, on gauging the Health and Wellness of our children, on preventing suicide. At what point does the cure pose more risk than the disease, if ever a cure was really needed?

The school district has poured buckets of money at this problem and wasted thousands of hours of instructional time with, as is obvious, little effect on the problem. The Colorado Department of Education now proposes squandering even more taxpayer dollars on programs that are just not producing any results. If you’re not aiming at the target, you can’t hit it.  What is it Einstein is quoted as saying? “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result”.

Somebody is benefiting from all of this and it is not our children.

My guess, anecdotally, is that the rise of child and teen suicide directly tracks the increasing introduction of these topics and programs into our schools. My further guess is that as these programs reached further down, into lower-aged school children, the incidence of self-harm and suicide increased in these populations, as well.

Will anyone do a study on this? I’m thinking no; it’d be bad for business.

Parents, you can take action; it will take a thick skin and a demanding demeanor to get to it but it will be worth the effort, for the safety of your children.

  1. Health and Wellness surveys- They are full of questions on whether your child has ever been “sad”. Well, who hasn’t? But these questions are closely followed by questions on:

a) Have you been sad more than 2 times a week?

b) Have you ever harmed yourself?

c) How have you harmed yourself?

d) Have you ever engaged in cutting?

e) Have you ever played the choking game?

f) Have you ever considered suicide?

Is it just me, or do these questions look more like suggestions, balloons leading directly to Pennywise and a children’s house of horrors?

Parents- in writing, tell your school and district that these surveys are NOT to be given to your children. EVER!

2. The Trevor Project- This repugnant site is touted by many schools as a “safe” place for children, especially if they are anxious or depressed. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Here, children are enticed into private chat rooms with unqualified  “counselors”, who appear to be nothing more than other tormented souls, where these “counselors” engage your child in discussions of suicide, gender dysphoria, self harm and other issues they are not competent to discuss.

Adults are able to engage with your child, in private chat rooms, to “counsel” them. It has all the earmarks of a pedophile’s playground but, since parents cannot enter, no one knows for certain what, exactly, is occurring with the minor children that engage with the adults.

Parents- Ask your Principal if children in the school are being referred to the Trevor Project as a “resource” available to them. In writing, demand that this stop and that the Trevor Project be removed from all school and district material.

3. Signs of Suicide training- This is directed at your child, teaching them all the nuances of suicide contemplation. If your child had never contemplated having a choice in the matter before, he or she will certainly understand that choice after this training.

Importantly, this type of program is a blanket, one-size-fits-all, program, it does not focus on truly “at risk” children, it treats all children as being at risk and this is surely not the case.

Parents- In writing, tell your Principal and District that your child is not to participate in these types of programs. EVER! You are far better of engaging your own therapist for this. At least you can get references and see them for yourselves.

4. So-called Anti-bullying programs- Steer clear of these. You would be forgiven for thinking that, with the term “anti-bullying” in it, the program was focused on the bully. It is not.  Entire student bodies are made to sit through hundreds of hours of “training” and social indoctrination. It isn’t about bullying at all, and that’s why it doesn’t work. It’s about social re-engineering for the special interest groups that fund it.

As far as bullying policies, our schools are only focused on the victim, not the bully. If your child is bullied, they will be made to feel responsible for coping, and taught “strategies” for dealing with ongoing bullying. These programs more or less ignore the bully, leaving the bully to walk free. They are seldom disciplined.

Again, millions spent on the wrong target.

We fall all over ourselves crying, “don’t blame the victim”, then put our kids in a position where they feel the responsibility for ending the bullying themselves. Some schools even insist that the victims receive counseling while the bully walks free, or force the victim into “mediation” sessions with the bully, even though experts recognize such techniques as disastrous, in terms of further empowering bullies.  Victims are told not to defend themselves, told to walk away, or run away and “ask for help” – ask for help from incompetent bureaucrats that refuse to discipline bullies because it would require state and federal paperwork to be filed.

We are the adults, and we need to take the action, not the children. The school culture abandons them to the bully and hides behind all the empowering words and rhetoric, such as “bully proofing” them with platitudes. The kids, however, know that the minute they leave the counselor’s office, they are gonna get the shit kicked out of them….again.

Want to generate a a cloud of despondency over a child? Make them feel helpless, make them feel there is no end to the torment, make them feel that they have been abandoned by the very people they look to for help. This is the way to do it. Does this sound familiar? Does this sound like the burden young Ashawnty might have been laboring under?

We need to show the victims and the bullies that a properly functioning anti-bullying program, rather than empowering the bully, deals swiftly and harshly with the bully and gives the bully a quick hall-pass out the door, never to return. You really don’t need an anti-bullying program to line a salesman’s pockets, or increase corporate profits if you’ve rid yourselves of the bullies. Let their parents deal with them. We’re tired of it.

Parents- Demand that these programs stop and that your children be protected from the predators among them in the schools. Demand that the school deal with the bullies and leave the victims alone. File lawsuits if your children are harmed; against the parent’s of the bully, as well as the school district. It is time to take a stand and demand an end to this.

School anti-bullying programs don’t work because they focus on the victim. The bullies walk free. We don’t have a bullying problem – we have enforcement problem.

We know of girls in our kids classes who have been verbally abused and threatened by boys, backing them up against walls and making crude suggestions to them, all year long. We know of other kids who have been hit and had their property destroyed on a regular basis, while their complaints to the school were ignored, other than to be offered ” victim counseling”. They didn’t need counselling, the little thugs tormenting them needed to be gone!

The net result of all of this misguided, feel good, accomplish little programming is:

  1. We create kids that view the world as a place of danger; where they have been abandoned by adults and are victims to whatever evil little turd wants to molest them.
  2. We place them in programs and give them surveys with a heavy emphasis on self-harm and suicide, inoculating them with the idea that there is a way out.
  3. We then wring our hands and weep to the heavens, asking why the incidence of suicide is rocketing upward?

Oh why, we ask ?

Now, while all of the foregoing is bad, it gets worse.

Having created an atmosphere of hopelessness in our kids, a feeling that they have been abandoned by those tasked to protect them, it’s seems the damage is not enough. We have to legislate official and legal abandonment.

In the past Colorado legislative session, a number of bills (in one form or another) were introduced to separate your children from you and place them in confidential “chat rooms” with “counselors” who can, and will, discuss all sorts of topics with your child, all under the screen of confidentiality.

An attempt last session, by Democratic lawmakers, would have resulted in your child meeting with a stranger, discussing topics you might not want your child discussing with a stranger, and you would have no control over it, would not know about it, could not vet the qualifications or the ideology of the counselor; you would have absolutely no knowledge of it unless your child chose to tell you about it. And you thought Big Brother existed only only a book.

And how might these counselors be housed? Where might their offices be? Who might be providing these counselling services? Well, it might be in the conveniently located, new “School Based Health Clinics (SBHC)” springing up in our schools, owned and operated by none other than Larry Wolk, Head of the Colorado Department of Public Health. And, pray tell, what is Dr. Wolk’s position in the Colorado Dept of Health? Why he is the Director. And who will dish out the money for the funding of these School Based Clinics? Surprise, it is none other than the very same Department of Health where Larry Wolk is the Director.  Is it me? Does anyone else see a conflict of interest here?

In addition, as if this isn’t bad enough as it is, these clinics are entitled to go into classrooms and provide “depression screening” for all children who will then be sent to the school clinic for counseling, behind parents’ backs if Dem lawmakers have their way in this upcoming legislative session.

Again, I’m sure it is just me, but my guess is that 90% of all the kids will need some form of “counselling” in the helpful and convenient Larry Wolk provided clinics. If you have medical insurance, your insurance will pay for it. If not, then it will be billed, with gleeful abandon, to Medicaid.

And in case you’re not sure: the Colorado Department of Public Health links to materials from its website aimed at teaching staff how to deal with resistance from the public.  Look it up, it’s all there.

However, I would not be so completely cynical as to suggest that there is a conspiracy in all of this. That all of it, the programs, the suicide training, the anti-bullying programs, the proposed legislation, the clinics, Larry Wolk, the Department of Health….all of it… is just a  scheme for vendors and special interests to profit from the misery of our children. Pennywise, after all, is a fictional character in a movie. Right?

Tell that to the parents of Ashawnty Davis. They just thought they were sending their little girl  to school.


EBSCO and Cosmopolitan Join Forces to Target Middle Schoolers with Sex Ads

The 3 billion dollar EBSCO Information Services boasts of selling its school “research” and “homework” database products to over 50,000 schools and libraries across the country.

Explora for Middle and High School students is streaming sexually graphic articles straight from Cosmo and its K-12 products, targeting captive audience of potentially millions of children and minor youth nationwide.

EBSCO promises non-censorship to its publishing clients, such as Cosmo, and is making big bucks by granting them access to school kids as potential new consumers for the sex industry…

This example is from the Mesa County Public Library of Colorado…

EBSCO and Cosmo are streaming volumes of articles and advertisements at school kids. This example from a Colorado library displays the Cosmo article, “Crazy Kinky Cool” , which encourages kids to try BDSM and even gives instructions for “Beginners”, “Intermediate” and “Advanced” players, complete with images and links to “sex toy” shops that advertise “kink” paraphernalia.



Schools Across the Country – Call EBSCO – Ask for the “Adams 12” List to get rid of Porn

Although EBSCO is dragging its corporate heels to take responsibility for the obscene content of its K-12 products, some Colorado schools have demanded the creation of an exclusion list called the “Adams 12” list which is now available to all schools and libraries across the country.

This list was developed collaboratively with the Adams 12 and Cherry Creek School Districts of Colorado. While it doesn’t fix the problem, it does provide some important, temporary relief and we strongly encourage K-12 institutions in every state to call EBSCO Support and ask for “Adams 12” Exclusion List.

Asking for the Adams 12 list does two things: 1. It will remove some of the obscene content to which children are exposed and 2. it will send a strong message to EBSCO that we will stand up to their outrageous conduct.

It is important to understand that EBSCO continues to falsely market its K-12 products as age-appropriate and vetted for schools. When confronted with this deceit, they have pushed the burden onto the schools. Many schools are still unaware of the obscene and pornographic content streamed into EBSCO’s K-12 databases, such as Explora and other products, because EBSCO has refused to recall these products and has failed to notify its school customers of the need for them to customize for age-appropriateness.

EBSCO databases are proprietary and cannot be filtered. Only EBSCO can correct the problems and they appear unwilling to do so. Under growing national outrage, earlier this year, EBSCO made a change to its corporate policy such that users will be able to exclude certain publications from streaming material which is obscene.

It would be even better if schools across the country would suspend their EBSCO subscriptions (and ask for their money back) until EBSCO has made good on its promise to install internal filters. But if you are not ready to take this step then, minimally, please call EBSCO and ask for the Adams 12 Exclusion List. Help get the word out and please share this information as widely as you can.

Colorado leads the fight to get “EBSCO Porn” out of schools across America

EBSCO: Exploiting our children for profit

EBSCO is a 3 billion dollar corporation that boasts of providing K-12 research databases to over 50,000 schools nationwide. These databases contain some journal articles and newspaper stories but, in general, have been widely criticized as disjointed and random in their search results. The journal articles appear to be a loss leader for the true product: magazines and advertisements. Yes, schools all over the country are streaming advertising at K-12 kids. And a good deal of this advertisement is adult in content, very adult. There are hundreds of sexually graphic ads for “sex toy” shops, complete with links to the online shop venues. There are sexually graphic articles, images and even links to hard core pornography sites. This obscene material is streamed into K-12 school databases by EBSCO’s publishing clients and include adult “pop culture” magazines such as Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Lesbian News, Glamour, Chatelaine, Ebony, Esquire and other magazines and articles that have absolutely no business in a homework database, and believe me, these are not your supermarket, news rack versions.

What child, ever, used Cosmo as a homework resource?

Our group is networked across the country to expose this horrific problem, and we have thus far identified obscene EBSCO content in school linked databases from 15/15 states that we have been able to investigate, including Colorado, Florida, Connecticut, Nebraska, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Nevada, Georgia, Ohio, New Jersey, Minnesota, Kansas, West Virginia, and New Hampshire.

Marketed as a Scholarly Datbase But Links to Hard Core Porn Sites From “Academic Journals”

Members of our groups have recently taken a closer look at some of the academic journals contained in EBSCO’s Explora school databases. We have found live links to a myriad of hard core porn, and violent “BDSM” porn sites embedded into the “academic journals” streaming into EBSCO’s K-12 Explora Secondary School databases.

If that’s not bad enough,  EBSCO search results are disjointed, repetitive and random.  The Emperor truly has no clothes when it comes to EBSCO’s “school products”.



 What are we teaching our children?

 Pornography has been shown to contain heavy themes of misogyny as well as the glamorization of sexual violence. Children exposed to pornography can be harmed – for more details, see the National Center on Sexual Exploitation which has named EBSCO to its 2017 Dirty Dozen list as a major contributor to the sexual exploitation of women and children ( ). As might be predicted in a country where 50,000 schools are streaming EBSCO porn at their students, the rate of student on student violence has reached alarming proportions  ( ). Teacher/student sexual assaults have sky-rocketed. Do these predators use EBSCO as a classroom grooming tool? Do they send students to EBSCO, where they are bound to locate sexually graphic content because it is pushed to the top of the search results, perhaps in the hopes that children will become desensitized and accepting of sexual advances?  How else to explain these alarming trends? Every day there is another breaking news story about a teacher who has sexually assaulted a child in their care.

Colorado leads the fight against EBSCO

The prestigious Cherry Creek School District of Colorado recently contacted EBSCO and asked for the ground breaking, “Adams 12 Exclusion Package”. This removes a number of adult, graphic, pop culture magazines which are known to stream obscene content into children’s homework and research databases.

What a fight! It took more than a year. But every school district in the state of Colorado that we have looked at has been identified as infected with EBSCO porn. EBSCO is distributed across the state by the Colorado Library Consortium (CLiC). EBSCO was introduced to Colorado through a collaborative venture between the CLiC and the CDE/State Library, although recent attempts to ask the CDE for help led to a scrambling restructure to remove CLiC from the state education umbrella. What are they hiding?

Coloradans can “thank” Gene Hainer of the CDE State Library, and Jim Duncan, Manager of the CLiC, for introducing the EBSCO atrocity to our state.

 The CLiC has advertised EBSCO databases to our K-12 institutions as a valuable and appropriate school resource while nothing could be further from the truth. When confronted with the reality, the CLiC denied any responsibility, callously claiming they “just sell” the products and ridiculously claim they bear no responsibility should their school customers misuse the products by allowing students to have access.

Every school district in Colorado was notified almost a year ago, and so was the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE), the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB), and the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), but it appears that, with the exception of Adams 12 and the Cherry Creek School District (CCSD), our leaders have just buried their heads in the sand.

Only two districts that we are aware of have responded and that would be Adams12 and the CCSD. Although they have not solved the problem, they have made a transitional gesture of removing many of the adult magazines that are the worst offenders for streaming obscene content. This is a valuable first step but the problem will not be solved until EBSCO subscriptions are canceled. EBSCO has shown itself to be a thoroughly corrupt corporation that appears to be knowingly, and with full deliberation, exploiting millions of school children nationwide for profit. They can never be trusted and they will always find new and creative means of pushing lucrative advertising for the 95 billion dollar sex industry into our schools, targeting a captive audience of children and minor youth as potential new consumers. We have even located articles that encourage young girls to enter the escort and sex work industry. No, EBSCO can never be trusted again.

There truly is no depth too low for EBSCO to sink in its gluttonous pursuit of profit. The EBSCO name has been sullied beyond repair.

Bryson Stephens, grandson of Founder, Elton Stephens and, apparently, a respected member of his community in Birmingham, the headquarters of EBSCO Industries.

Every concerned parent and taxpayer should contact EBSCO 1 (800) 653-2726 to express their outrage and should also contact their local School District to demand that EBSCO subscriptions be canceled. Don’t let them tell you that they “filter” EBSCO – this is a lie. The Cherry Creek School District tried it with us, and they are on record issuing this misinformation to concerned parents, teachers and reporters who called with concerns. But the truth is out: EBSCO database products are proprietary and cannot be touched by external or top site filters.

If they could have filtered the obscene material, Adams 12 and the Cherry Creek School District would not have created an Exclusion Package. The fact that EBSCO cannot be filtered has been confirmed by A12, the CCSD, the Arapahoe Library District, and EBSCO upper management in private communications. EBSCO even publicly admitted to having “problems” with its school databases in an interview with WBRC Birmingham ( ) and they promised to be working on internal filtering, which we have yet to see. In fact, our most recent information is that EBSCO is planning to dump even more responsibility onto their school customers by asking them to manually, “cherry pick” objectionable articles from K-12 products. Does EBSCO think that more taxpayer money should be squandered to hire a full time cherry-picker to stay on top of the porn streaming into its K-12 databases?

When we spoke with EBSCO management, we were told that the content of the K-12 databases was protected by contractual arrangement with their publishing clients. EBSCO values its publishing clients far more than they value their school customers. These “non-censorship” contracts, that permit streaming of porn and sex toy ads, must be very lucrative to EBSCO. After more than a year of nationwide pressure, and even being named to the Dirty Dozen list, EBSCO adamantly refuses to filter its K-12 products. EBSCO is dedicated to the protection of its publishers and advertisers and appears firmly committed to granting them free ranging, unfettered access to a captive audience that ranges into the hundreds of millions of school children across the U.S., Canada, and other countries.

What’s in it for the schools? 

Maybe the million dollar question is this: Why would our schools want to be complicit in EBSCO’s advertising of porn to kids? In Colorado, schools were notified a year ago, and only 2 that we know of have responded, even partially. Are they ashamed to admit there’s a problem? Afraid of legal liability if children have been harmed by exposure to porn through school databases? Are they getting kickbacks? All of the above?

Surely, EBSCO is generous with compensation to its school and library customers. EBSCO hands out grants, incentives, money for trips and awards. Some libraries even receive the $100,000 “solar grant” award each year. EBSCO is linked with the ALA and this country is now waking up to the fact that our “library community” has morphed into something that most adults wouldn’t recognize anymore. In fact, the Director of Intellectual Freedom, Jamie LaRue, was quoted as stating he would be “happy to go pick up [the Dirty Dozen] award” from the National Center on Sexual Exploitation ( ). He likes EBSCO. 

The pressure is mounting

With Colorado beginning to backpedal, now is the time for other states around the country to take a stand. We have confirmed EBSCO porn in 15/ 15 states that we have investigated and we have good reason to believe that it is present in every state across the country. Parents need to understand that the problem is not limited to public schools. We have found EBSCO Porn in private and parochial schools, and homeschooled children do not avoid the assault if they are using public libraries, which peddle EBSCO as “homework” databases, often driving traffic to them with promotions and ads that target minors.

The Arapahoe Library District of Colorado was featured by Mass Resistance (  and ) twice during this past year. In Colorado, we are beginning to also turn our attention to several other public libraries in the hopes that we can convince them to clean up or, better yet, cancel their EBSCO sponsorships.

There can be no justification for the egregious assault on the health and safety of our children by EBSCO. Schools and libraries should take the high ground and get rid of EBSCO lest they become morally and legally complicit.

It’s been a struggle but the momentum is building. We will not back down and we encourage others across the country to get involved.
