International Baccalaureate in Bedford, NH is it Anti-American?

A Bedford resident has asked the school district to be more transparent about the cost and political affiliations of Bedford High School’s International Baccalaureate program.

Ann Marie Banfield went before the Bedford Curriculum Committee on Tuesday, Oct. 12, to request that parents considering the IB program for their children be given a 21- page article titled “International Baccalaureate Unraveled.”

The article, written by Arizona author Debra K. Niwa, details several alleged failings of the IB program, including its cost, educational philosophy and its formal relationship with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

REJECT International Baccalaureate, Bedford NH

The following video blocked my ability to embed it.  The video is the project of IB students for one of their classes.  The disturbing thing about this video is the mentality behind it.  What is obvious from these students is that they are being indoctrinated by the IBO program.  

The propaganda from this video is unsettling. The students  have taken the position of Anti-Israel and anti conservative news media, more specifically, Fox News.  This is quite disturbing! 

I am perplexed why the administration and school board of Ozark High School is blindly following the globalist agenda of the International Baccalaureate. Dr. Gordon Pace and Chuck Fugate are not being honest and giving parents the total picture of the values of the IB. They are selling the program to parents on the basis it will better prepare students for college. Perhaps, parents should be asking why aren't Dr. Pace and his faculty are capable preparing Ozark students for college without an international governing body promoted by the United Nations instructing Dr. Pace and his faculty how to educate students.

That's the reality of the International Baccalaureate. More control of the school will be transferred from the community of Ozark to Geneva Switzerland. Now what does Geneva Switzerland know about our educational values here in Ozark?

Parents need to understand what Dr. Pace chooses not to tell you. The IB is connected to some radical left wing causes the include anti-American sentiment. I have put together a number of articles on this Web site that gives parents greater insight to the globalist agenda Dr. Pace has chosen to put Ozark High School on the path to. You can view those articles by visiting, and

I know living in Ozark, Missouri, we are lovers of the Second Amendment. We have Bass Pro Shops a few miles in both direction down the road. We love to hunt and shoot. Heck, we even have a local gun show at the Elks Lodge and the parking lot is always full. With this truth, it should be known to Ozark residents the IB supports gun control.

While the IB agenda does't say so directly, they advocate for a number of left-wing, anti American organizations which I will use this article to point out. The first is the IB has ties to the United Nations, and the IB supports the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Let's thumb a few pages into this declaration and read what it thinks of America's founding documents, which include the Second Amendment. Article 29 of the UN document
puts the United Nations in authority over individual rights. If this plan was adopted world wide under the Untied Nation's authority, the founding documents would come second and be irrelevant. Unlike America’s founding documents, which describe individual rights as "inalienable." Article 29 states: "These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."

Do I need to remind you that
United Nations continues to push for gun control in the United States?

There is a IB connection that pushes gun control as well. It is called Earth Charter, and the IB is on board without any questions. The International Baccalaureate issued the following statement in their support of Earth Charter.

We, the undersigned, endorse the Earth Charter. We embrace the spirit and aims of the document. We pledge to join the global partnership for a just, sustainable, and peaceful world and to work for the realization of the values and principles of the Earth Charter. We pledge to join the Global Partnership in Support of the Earth Charter Initiative for a sustainable way of life AND urge all governments to endorse the Earth Charter.

Article 16.d.&e. calls for Military disarmament around the world. This section goes as far as disarming everyone in the world. Now our founding fathers knew the very idea of this was ludicrous. They gave us the Second Amendment right to bear arms in order to protect from oppression, but the Earth Charter merely promotes it by demanding even the smallest of arms being taken away from all persons.

Dr. Pace, Dr. Sam Taylor, and Chuck Fugate aren't going to tell you these things about the International Baccalaureate. They are only going to explain to you the love your kids are going to get from colleges if they have this piece of paper with the IB symbol on it. Trust me, that symbol is the mark of the beast for our liberty and freedom, specifically our Second Amendment rights in this case, although I am sure I have presented enough information to show the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are irrelevant under the IB charter.

In closing I want to remind you what Ronald Reagan said. Dr. Pace will claim he has worked in an IB school, and he has seen no reason to fear the reasons to fear the warnings I present to you. Like visitors from outer space in the movies and TV, the IB comes in peace at first. They slowly begin to indoctrinate your children with anti-American ideas. Before long, like the visitors, they are attacking all we hold near and dear. You may not see these truths immediately with the IB, but as time rolls on and another generation of Americans are conditioned with the agenda of the IB, greater acceptance of the UN's charter will be begin to take place and more anti-American sentiment will be heard.

Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Do you really want to take a chance with the IB knowing the truths I present to you? 


Shortly before the videos about the International Baccalaureate curriculum surfaced, Bedford NH had another public education issue that was being played out all across America on tv (Parents Pull Son Out of New Hampshire School Over Assigned Book That Refers to Jesus as 'Wine-Guzzling Vagrant and Socialist" ), in the newspaper and on the internet.  What was at the core of the issue was a textbook that was required for a "personal finance" class that was titled "Nickel and Dimed."  What the book is is a social activists take on Anti capitalism and pro-socialism and is written by an elitist that has NO background in finance at all. 

The following videos were taken from a School Board meeting in December 2010.

George Soros Has Ties to the International Baccalaureate: A Warning to Ozark High School Parents

Glenn Beck recently explained George Soros quest to push a New World Order--a one-world government. This government would obviously remove the philosophies of our founding fathers, which the United States was built. It's amazing how deeply the Soros roots are planted, including a program Ozark High School are trying to adopt known as the International Baccalaureate.

The International Baccalaureate has a basic goal of producing global citizens. When you start looking inside the IBO, you quickly realize they advocate for a number of causes that don't have the United States' best interest. These include United Nations human rights issues that undermine the Constitution and the sovereignty of the United States, as well as Earth Charter that promotes the redistribution of the world, taking away the right to bear arms. These are things the Ozark School Board aren't going to tell residents as they work to sell Ozark parents on the IP.

I decided to look to see who exactly is behind the International Baccalaureate, and with no surprise I found ties to George Soros. Soros is tied to the International Baccalaureate through his Open Society Institute. Established in 1993, the Open Society Institute (OSI) is the most prominent of the numerous foundations belonging to the international billionaire financier George Soros, its founder and Chairman.

Open Society supports a vast array of radical left wing organizations, which are typically anti-American. Included on that list is Earth Charter.

OSI endorsed a 2000 document called the Earth Charter, which blames capitalism for many of the world's environmental, social, and economic problems. According to the Charter, “the dominant patterns of production and consumption are causing environmental devastation, the depletion of resources, and a massive extinction of species.” “The benefits of development,” adds the Charter, “are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening."

While this isn't a direct connection the International Baccalaureate has also issued a statement of strong support for the Earth Charter. They issued the following statement signaling their support:

We, the undersigned, endorse the Earth Charter. We embrace the spirit and aims of the document. We pledge to join the global partnership for a just, sustainable, and peaceful world and to work for the realization of the values and principles of the Earth Charter. We pledge to join the Global Partnership in Support of the Earth Charter Initiative for a sustainable way of life AND urge all governments to endorse the Earth Charter.

Now why would Dr. Gordon Pace, Dr. Sam Taylor, and Chuck Fugate (President of the Ozark School Board) push an organization that advocates a charter that George Soros celebrates because it blames capitalism for all the world's problems? That's a question I would like to know too.
