1. Statement on Education Policy

From the desk of ...
Dr. Peg Luksik
I have been involved in the “education wars” for over two decades. Over that time, the nature of our argument has changed. We now spend all of our time trying to slow down the agenda of our opponents, and we are, frankly, losing that battle.

We need to stop quibbling about the details, and start promoting the principles that will make America’s schools once again serve America’s children.

Our nation’s founders knew that they needed a Declaration of the Truths on which it would stand. In our battle for the hearts and minds and futures of our children, it is time that we follow their example.

The following is my effort to do so.

I plan to present it to our elected officials, at every level, and to use it to develop real answers in education. If you would like to join me in this effort, simply sign onto the Declaration with your name and state. Every name will be included when the statement is delivered.

You will notice that no organization is mentioned in the Declaration. That is intentional. I am a parent, a grandparent, a teacher, a taxpayer and an American citizen, and I personally wrote the Declaration. I am asking you to sign it as an individual as well.

Our forefathers gave us America’s past. Our children need us to give them America’s future. I know that together, we will not let them down.

2. No Refugee Resettlement without Local OK

“Terrorists have made it known they want to manipulate the refugee program to sneak operatives to the West…” Rep. Mike McCaul

This shocking video describes the imminent threat we face as the State Department moves to secretly bring 65,000 unvetted Syrians to America under Obama’s regime with no local knowledge or control.

The federal Refugee Resettlement (RR) program is operated today by the Global Left, the UN, Islam, and religious frauds. The goal is to Change America by Changing its People.

As a result, we are drowning in refugees who are destroying our Constitutional freedoms, overburdening our welfare system and posing a genuine national security threat.

Will you as an American citizen stand up and fight this national suicide via LEGAL IMMIGRATION?

By signing this petition you are telling your Governor, Congress and state representatives:
• I will not tolerate giving my tax dollars to secretly “planted”, unvetted refugees that would otherwise go to aid poor families in my community.
• I demand you do your job by representing the Will of The People rather than the Resettlement industry that may be funding your campaigns.

3. Set ONTario Free

Currently Ontario International Airport (ONT) is operated by the City of Los Angeles' Department of Airports (also known as Los Angeles World Airports, LAWA). ONT is located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in San Bernardino County.

The airport traces its origin to 1923, making it one of the oldest in the nation and the state. In 1959 commercial air service became vastly more popular. In that time, LAX remained the principal airport serving Southern California. There were often times when LAX was shrouded in fog, which required flights to divert to ONT.

In 1967 a contract was signed between the City of Los Angeles and the City of Ontario for the Joint Exercise of Powers in Relation to Ontario International Airport (JPA). Both parties felt that considerable benefit would result to ONT and LAX, to the two cities and to the users of air transportation into and out of Southern California. From the signing of the JPA in 1967 until deregulation of the airline industry in 1978, the two airports were treated the same by the Civil Aeronautics Board for the purposes of airline route authorities and the setting of airfares. Air service began to take off and by 1971 the airport was serving more than one million passengers a year.

Airline rates and charges at ONT were extremely low through the 1990s. This was typical of secondary airports in the United States. As planning for new ONT facilities turned to how to pay for them. The airlines and LAWA agreed to a plan using Passenger Facility Charges that would help keep operating costs as low as possible after the new facilities opened. Federal legislation created the ability for airports to charge a passenger Facility Charge to be collected by the airlines in the ticketing process with funds held in trust by the airport sponsor for approved capital projects.

While debt service costs were kept low, LAWA made a number of decisions that dramatically increased costs, including staffing the new facilities with City of Los Angeles employees, bringing in-house functions, and imposing a burdensome administrative charge. These decisions would rapidly lead to high personnel costs that would make it much more expensive for airlines to serve ONT.

Currently domestic departures are down 56% and destinations offered are down from 32 to 14. In 2011, two million passengers bypassed ONT. This led to approximately 1.3 billion car trips into LAX. This also led to over nine thousand job loses and a downfall in the Inland Empire economy.
