Should the Peace Corps be privatized?

Walton Family Foundation Gifts Teach for America $49.5 Million  The Walton Family Foundation is run by Walmart founder Sam Waltonâ€TMs three children. First Posted: 7/27/11 09:04 AM ET Updated: 7/27/11 09:14 AM ET NEW YORK — The Walton Family Foundation announced a $49.5 million grant Wednesday to help double the size of Teach for America’s national teaching corps over the next three years. Teach for America is a program for recent college graduates who sign up to teach in some of the nation’s most under-served schools for a period of two years. The Walton Foundation’s gift marks the single largest private donation to Teach for America in the organization’s more than 20-year history. Later this fall, the organization will send 9,300 corps members to 43 regions across the country. Over the next few years, half of the Walton Family Foundation grant will go towards growing that teaching corps to 15,000 by . . .

Another view of the value of the Peace Corps

“Conquer” by Love rather than Force of Arms America Needs to Replace the “Pentagon Approach” with the “Peace Approach” by Sherwood Ross If the United States attempted to “conquer” by love rather than force of arms, it might be respected, not reviled, globally. If the White House took an altruistic approach in foreign affairs—that is, if it rejected greed, exploitation, and war in favor of fair play, charity, and humanitarian assistance—it might enjoy such prosperity as exists beyond the dreams of its misguided rulers. It is no naïve suggestion to urge the Congress to transpose the budgets and numbers of personnel of the Pentagon and the Peace Corps. Naïve is how one would define the Pentagon’s 10-year-long failure to conquer Afghanistan by force of arms. Naïve is how the Pentagon can claim the U.S. has improved Iraq when that country far is worse off today than when the Pentagon first . . .

Peace Corps Puts Volunteers in Danger July 25, 2011 (left, Peace Corps Volunteer Kate Puzey, 24, was murdered in March 2009 in Benin.) Idealistic young Americans are cannon fodder for the Illuminati-run peace corps. by David Richards (henrymakow.com) Henry Makow is the author of A Long Way to go for a Date. He received his Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of Toronto. henry@savethemales.ca. JFK founded the Peace Corps program 50-years-ago proclaiming it a charitable organization designed to encourage mutual understanding between Americans and other countries. In reality, the Peace Corps is a military organization serving the Illuminati. It sends Westerners into third-world countries to act as NWO “change agents,” Westernizing locals. Another function is to give murderous US foreign policy a charitable face. Since its beginning, 200,000 US volunteers have served the organization in 139 nations. There are now 8,650 Americans working in 77 countries in Asia, Africa, the . . .

Kevin Lowther Writes Book on Sierra Leonean John Kizell

Every once in a while the Peace Corps produces a wonderful writer, and one of them is Kevin Lowther (Sierra Leone 1963-65). He is a former PC/HQ staffer, newspaper editor, and student of the agency who has written on African issues for the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor;  he is also the coauthor of Keeping Kennedy’s Promise: The Peace Corps,Unmet Hope of the New Frontier, published in 1978. I first met Kevin through the Volunteer in-country newsletter he edited while a PCV in Sierra Leone. I believe the newsletter was called The Tilley Lamp, and it would arrive (for some unknown reason!) in the Peace Corps Office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It was well written, informative, funny, and the best PCV newsletter produced during those early years of the agency. Now he has a new book The African American Odyssey of John Kizell: A South Carolina Slave Returns to Fight the Slave Trade in His African Homeland.  (Kevin . . .
