Things You Really Should Know!
Hegelian Dialect & Global Warming
But something is amiss here as Fiorina has a very friendly relationship with the Clinton's even using Hillary's help in getting funds for her charitable drive in 2008 called the One Woman Initiative, targeting women’s empowerment groups, mostly in Muslim countries. According to the organization, she set it up with help from the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development and then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
It took about a year to raise the money. By the time the approximately $500,000 in grants was released, in June 2009, President Obama was in the White House and Clinton was secretary of State. The initiatives included a microfinance program in Pakistan, a conflict-resolution program in the Philippines and an economic development program in India.
The initiative aimed to distribute grants with the help of corporate sponsors, and with support from the Department of State and USAID. The agencies also declined to comment on the initiative.
Carly is board chairman of Good360, a Virginia-based group that connects companies who want to donate goods with charities that need them. Hilton Worldwide made that program a Clinton Global Initiative commitment in 2013.
Fiorina also is on the advisory board of the National Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a group that wants to open a center celebrating inventors and entrepreneurs on the National Mall in Washington. That too was announced as a Clinton initiative commitment in 2013. But the plans have stalled, in part because the Smithsonian decided it couldn’t devote resources to the project, said Philip Auerswald, the group’s board chairman.
So what does all this mean - either there is a backdoor deal between Fiorina and the Cinton's or Carly just had a major revelation as to who and what Hillary Clinton is. Hum! We certainly have known what Hillary was since she was President #2 while he hubby was President #1.

(Fiorina believes Global warming is a problem, and it will be private industry, innovation, and invention that solves the problem.)
4. This is part of a speech Carly gave in 2001 at the PROGRESSIVE & Freedom Foundation Summit in Aspen, CO stating she uses theHegelian Dialect every day. At this Summit she “hailed” the philosophy of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s dialectic process, elaborating re: her devotion to the idea of the Hegelian Dialectic as a tool for decision making.She suggested the synthesis of the status of schools to be “charter schools.”
"If we want to educate our children let us make sure that every parent has a choice and a chance to educate their children ".
"Let me tackle just one dimension of the debate: The private versus public school debate — free access for all versus a free-market voucher-driven system. The thesis on the table is: Keep the system the way it is — a vast system of public schools, some with strong performance, but many that are able to achieve only the lowest common denominator. The antithesis: Let competition reign, give all students vouchers, and let the strongest schools prosper — and the weakest ones perish.
If we could invoke (19th century German philosopher) Hegel, he’d help us find a synthesis: Perhaps a view that decisively bolsters the public schools system we have, but at the same time fosters more innovation and leadership through charter public schools. And to further fuel innovation, he might suggest a voucher program for the areas, or neighborhoods, or student populations most in need. In this case, the synthesis we hope, would be far more than just a compromise — it allows us to build on the best of what we have, but instills new responsibility and accountability to the system as well".
"It is in that same way that we might find synthesis of the debate between the thesis that says the primary purpose of education is to teach the fundamentals: reading, writing, job skills, technological literacy. And the antithesis: Schools are about providing food for the soul — the literature, arts, music, language education that emphasizes seeing connections and gaining perspective. The fact is: We must have leaders who are both technically skilled and holistic in their approach, fiercely analytical and humanistic, smart business people and passionate advocates of corporate citizenship. Our challenge as policymakers is to dispel the myth of “either/or” — and find an elegant way to get to “and.” READ MORE ( My friend Mary Thompson shared her article with me and you can find it in whole at the link October 10, 2013 News With Views.com)
5. Fiorina obviously supports Charter schools and Vouchers by the words from her very own mouth - another trainwreck to our children's futures.
6. Loyalty was not among her high priorities according to the book, "Backfire." While at HP, she traded with Iran in violation of U.S. trade sanctions by using a foreign entity. She has even praised and worked with, Jew hater - Jesse Jackson. Rights right and wrong is wrong no matter how you split the hairs.
7. Her biggest achievement was becoming the first woman to run Hewlett-Packard, and is widely regarded as a disaster being referred to as 'Fiorina's Folly' by many. Fiorina was fired three years after the merger with Compaq because she was better at selling an idea than running a really big company.
Fiorina was HP's CEO from 1999 to 2005, following Lewis Platt. Prior to that, she was a rising star at telecom equipment maker Lucent, where she led corporate operations when Lucent spun off from AT&T and then rose to become a top president there.
Buying Compaq over the strong objections of some board members has been called a move that was not in her best interest. Fiorina is probably best known for leading HP into a very bitter and public board-level fight over the acquisition of Compaq. She wanted to buy the big PC rival and turn HP into the biggest PC maker. A faction of the board, led by Walter Hewlett (son of internally revered company co-founder William Hewlett), opposed the buy and launched a proxy fight.
Hewlett's point was simple: Just maybe it's a really bad idea to double down on a low-margin business like PCs. Fiorina won the proxy fight, and HP bought Compaq for about $19 billion in 2002.
But the integration of Compaq into HP was never smooth. Key Compaq executives reporting to Fiorina left or were ousted. And Fiorina angered many employees with a massive layoffs right after the acquisition, cutting 15,000 HP jobs, making the workers who lost their jobs train their overseas replacements. (Sounds like Disney - I guess that is the corporate way these days) During her tenure, HP's stock lost more than half its value.
8. Depending on where you find a statement regarding educaton one time Fiorina was totally in favor of NCLB and in another article states she never approved of it. As some of the other candidates running for president have done, she is trying to distance herself from anything she has ever said about NCLB, Race To The Top or Common Core. Not that easy Ms. Fiorina - During Obama's Race To The Top financial state's trap her campaign noted the administration was "putting into place some critically important accountability measures” and “helping improve our education system”. Under this heading, she also praised the affiliated “internationally benchmarked standards and assessments” as well as “robust data systems” which have now come under heavy criticism for infringement on student privacy.
Alyson Klein of EducationWeek from an interview noted that Fiorina had thought “No Child Left Behind helped us set a high bar for our students…”
“I don't think Common Core is a good idea. I don't support it.” January, 2015 And more. Now she states she is against the federal intrusion in education (which has been in place for years). Listening to her explanations, it looks like she is either not very well informed on education given Californai is now in full educational crisis setting the trned for America or she is just another politician who goes with the tides of change when convenient.
9. May, 2015 , Fiorina and five other Republican presidential candidates—Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Perry—had a private audition in front of the country's most influential conservatives at the Council for National Policy event — a secretive nonprofit group populated by hundreds of right-wing activists and donors.
10. Fiorina was an economic adviser to Republican John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign. McCain also asked her to help with Palin - they ended up never meeting. Fiorina found out what can happen if you might make a "Washingotn gaffe". On a St. Louis radio show she stated Sara Palin was not qualified to even run HP let alone be VP, but then neither were Obama or McCain. She was removed as the campaign surrogate.
11. Staunchly anti-abortion.
12. She was named vice chairwoman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee in 2011.
13. Carly worked with Arnold Schwarzenegger's transition team when he was elected governor and most are not sure if he is a republican or democrat.
14. "According to www.capoliticalnews.com, records showed that Carly's Fiorina Foundation had never registered with the IRS or the state Attorney General’s Charitable Trust division, which tax exempt charities are required to do."
15. Until January 2015, Fiorina had not repaid the roughly $500,000 in remaining debt from her previous Senate run. Before then, she had repaid less than $50,000 total since the campaign ended, according to Federal Election Commission reports. Party insiders have criticized her for taking more than four years to repay the funds, and some pointed out that she did so only after increasing her media exposure in advance of a potential presidential run.
Fiorina and her husband, Frank, bought a $6.1 million house in northern Virginia before paying off her debt. an un-named fellow politician stated, “For someone who is as wealthy as she is to still have debt, it’s outrageous.” Carly backed up her reasons for not having made the patments sooner to Hillary Clinton having taken 4 years to pay back 6 Million.
Carly Fiorina Once Supported Race to
NCLB - Now She Says She Doesn't!
A document from her 2010 campaign discovered on her Senate campaign’s website it outlined her views on education. Regarding Race to the Top, the document said, “President Obama’s Race to the Top program puts into place some critically important accountability measures that Carly believes will help improve our education system.”
Fiorina’s campaign document also stated that she wanted the debate surrounding the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (called No Child Left Behind in its current form) to focus on raising student outcomes. “No Child Left Behind helped us set high standards for our students, and many of our students have met and exceeded that bar,” the document reads.
Overall Fiorina believe's that public education needed “a culture of accountability… supported by high standards, well-aligned metrics and outcome-based rewards and consequences.” READ MORE
