  "BELLA DODD's book is a human document of immense importance to Americans today. Here are the inner workings of the Communist Party in this country as seen from the secret counsels and strategy meetings of the National Committee, to which she belonged for a crucial span of years.

As long ago as the 1940's the Party was planning cynically to use the Negroes as instruments in the revolution-to-come in the United States .

The theory, contrived by Stalin and unleashed by Foster, was to encourage "self-determination of the Negroes in the black belt" and the establishment of a Negro nation with the right to secede from the United States.

Bella Dodd's is a story familiar to many a young American idealist who saw in Communism a new gospel and who worked sacrificially in the cause until the inevitable bitter day when the cause betrayed him.

For her, that day came almost too late for her own salvation, for as she tells us "it takes a long time to 'unbecome' a Communist."

Charlotte's comment:

As shocking as one may find the text on the back of Bella Dodd's book (see American abstract above), what Bella Dodd is telling us is true regarding the Soviet Union's use of the negroes to break up America and to take us over.  No one knows this except  former USSR President Gorbachev who at one point recommended the blacks form their own state, which would have caused the breakup of the USA as we have known it.

Black Separatism Is an Old Soviet Idea

To the Editor:

I have "somewhere" a small paper booklet...about 15 pages...which is written by no less that USSR Josef Stalin himself where he lays out the plan to use the negroes to do what Gorbachev recommended (above).   When I find this booklet (if ever), I promise to get it out to all on my list.

The blacks in the USA are to be thanked, congratulated forever for their persistence in never letting this happen.  The majority of them (99%) are church-going, good citizens,  and have served in overwhelming numbers in USA wars, and are not radicals.

The Communist Party USA, on orders from Stalin himself, with involvement from education, tax-exempt foundations,  and industry,  and radicals like Saul Alinsky, have tried since the Bolshevik Revolution to  use and radicalize  this innocent minority to implement its evil agenda.

the deliberate dumbing down of america, pages 282-283:

“THE FOUNDATION MACHINE” BY EDITH KERMIT ROOSEVELT WAS PUBLISHED IN THE DEcember 26, 1968 issue of The Wanderer. In this important article Mrs. Roosevelt discussed problems that had been created by the Carnegie Corporation’s new reading program as follows:

Even now the Carnegie Corporation is facing protests from parents whose children are exposed to the textbooks financed by the foundation under its “Project Read.” This project provides programmed textbooks for schools, particularly in “culturally deprived areas.”

An estimated five million children throughout the nation are using the material in the programmed textbooks produced by the Behavioral Research Laboratories, Palo Alto, California.

This writer has gone over these textbooks in the “Reading” series financed by the Carnegie Corporation and authored by M.W. Sullivan, a linguist. These foundation-funded books reveal a fire pattern that amounts to an incitement to the sort of arson and guerilla warfare that took place in Watts, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. On one page in the series we find a torch next to a white porch. The caption reads invitingly, “a torch, a porch.”

Further along, there is a picture of a man smiling while he holds a torch aloft. The caption beneath it reads: “This man has a t_rch in his hand.” The children are required as an exercise to insert the missing letter to fill in the word torch. The next picture shows the burning torch touching the porch, with a caption, “a torch on a porch.” Thus, the children are led in stages to the final act that suggests itself quite naturally.

The picture in the series shows a hand moving the hands of a clock to twenty-five minutes past one, while this same shack is being devoured by flames. The message is plain: an example of a man who deliberately commits the criminal act of setting a home on fire.

Tragically, these young children are being indoctrinated with a pattern of anti-social ideas that will completely and violently alienate them from the mainstream of American middle-class values….

Other pictures in the Carnegie-funded supposedly educational texts include a comparison of a flag with a rag, the ransoming of an American soldier in a Chinese prison, a picture that shows people kneeling in a church to say their prayers beside a picture of a horse being taught to kneel in the same way, a reference to a candidate elected to public office as a “ruler,” a picture of a boy stealing a girl’s purse, and another boy throwing pointed darts at a companion whom he uses as target practice.

Understandably, the Carnegie-financed books are causing concern to local law-enforcement officials, many of whom have to cope with riot or near-riot conditions. Ellen Morphonios, prosecutor for Florida in its attorney’s office, and a chief of its Criminal Court Division, said recently: “It’s a slap in the face and an insult to every member of the Negro community, saying that the only way to communicate with Negro children is to show a robber or violence. It’s like subliminal advertising. If this isn’t subversive and deliberately done as part of a master plan.… Only a sick mind could have produced it.”

Repeated instances of this type of anti-social activity obviously constitute a strong argument for removing the tax-exempt status of these educational foundations, and for curbing their activities by Federal regulations and Congressional oversight.

Connect Edith Roosevelt's recommendation with Griffin-Norman Dodd interview (below) during which  Norman Dodd told Griffin he had been told by Rowan Gaither President of the Ford Foundation that foundations received following recommendation from the White House "to use their tax-exempt monies to bring about a merger of the USA and the Soviet Union."

Norman Dodd On Tax Exempt Foundations

The federally-funded experimentation on minority children commenced in 1968 in Chicago where "half of the minority students in the 1980 freshman class" dropped out:

LEARNING AND INSTRUCTION, A CHICAGO INNER CITY SCHOOLS POSITION PAPER PRESENTED in June of 1968 to the Chicago Board of Education, was produced by the planning staff in Chicago made up of: Dr. Donald Leu, William Farquhar, Lee Shulman, and the Chicago and Michigan State universities in collaboration. One reference used was Soviet Preschool Education, translatedby Henry Chauncey (Educational Testing Service, Princeton, N.J.). Excerpts from the ChicagoMastery Learning Project position paper, Learning and Instruction, follow:

We view the child with his defined characteristics as input to a school organization which modifies his capabilities toward certain goals and objectives as output.

The school organization is an optimal deployment of teachers employing a special subject matter who attempt through instruction, with the aid of selected elements of the community, to achieve specified outputs. The joint participation of the children, school and community leave none of these elements unchanged….

This emphasis should be accomplished within the context of a truly ungraded structure which we shall denote by the terms Continuous Development-Mastery Learning. This approach has the following characteristics: (a) Beginning with Chicago’s present concept of Continuous Development, the objectives of the language arts curriculum must be much further differentiated and articulated in the manner currently being conducted by Sophie Bloom [wife of the late Benjamin Bloom] in Chicago, and Pittsburgh’s Individually Prescribed Instruction Project.

In the Continuous Development-Mastery Learning approach, a large number of sequentially designated objectives, tied into specific capabilities to be mastered by pupils, are identified.

This is done by curriculum development specialists in collaboration with instructional personnel.

The following is an excerpt from an article published in Education Week, March 6, 1985 entitled “Half of Chicago Students Drop out, Study Finds: Problem Called Enormous Human Tragedy”:

Calling the dropout problem in Chicago “a human tragedy of enormous dimensions,” a recent study has found that almost half of the 39,500 public school students in the 1980 freshman class failed to graduate, and that only about a third of those who did were able to read at or above the national 12th grade level.

“These statistics about the class of 1984 reflect the destruction of tens of thousands of young lives, year in and year out,” says the study, released in January by Designs for Change, a nonprofit research and child-advocacy organization in Chicago….

“Most of these young people are permanently locked out of our changing economy and have no hope of continuing their education or getting a permanent job with a future,” the authors wrote.

Professor Lee Shulman’s involvement in the Chicago Mastery Learning disaster was, however, quickly forgotten or considered unimportant. According to Education Daily of May 21, 1987—two years later: Shulman, who heads Stanford’s Education Policy Institute, last week was awarded $817,000 by Carnegie Corporation to develop over the next 15 months new forms of teacher assessment materials that would be the basis of standards adopted by a national teacher certification board.

The Education Daily article further discussed the requirement for teacher critique of the way two textbooks treat photosynthesis and how they (teachers) developed a lesson plan based on each one:

The teacher then would be directed to use the textbooks to tell the examiners how he or she would teach students with varying religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Nine years later Education Week of October 23, 1996 reported Shulman again leading the outcome-/performance-based teacher education bandwagon of social change agents:

His successful performance as developer of new forms of teacher assessment materials leads to his being named President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, filling the vacancy created by the death last year of Ernest L. Boyer.

An excerpt from an October 21, 1996 New York Times article entitled “Carnegie Foundation Selects a New Leader” emphasized Shulman’s importance in the field of behavioral psychology:

He [Shulman] has been a Guggenheim Fellow, a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and a Fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. He is the immediate past president of the National Academy of Education and a former president of the American Education Research Association.

And, finally, USA  President Reagan and USSR President Gorbachev's signing of the USA-USSR Education and Cultural Exchange Agreements, 1985, carved the agenda in stone:
