We All Know What the Problem IS

MONEY. Spent by someone, in SUPPORT of a particular cause or a political candidate.

MONEY. Spent by someone, to work AGAINST an opposing political candidate or to support an opposing ideology.

MONEY. Spent by someone, in SUPPORT of a cause that stands antithetical to their OWN core ideals, simply because that group stands opposed to another candidate.

MONEY. Spent by someone, in support of BOTH CANDIDATES in order to establish influence with elected officials… no matter who wins an election.

Whether it’s in the SUNLIGHT or through DARK MONEY methods, the result is the SAME- legislators legislate based on MONEY, and the pursuit there of. Of course it would eventually lead to SELF-ENRICHMENT over the wellbeing of the NATION.

We are ALL BUT MEN, susceptible to fallacy and vice.

In a system based on HONOR, it was only a matter of TIME.

 

 

Without the financial support of the NRA, how many candidates over the course of the last 30 YEARS would NOT have been able to run for elected office? How many SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES would have LOST without that support?

A generational POWERHOUSE like the NRA falls due to the same vice, the same corrupt motives seen countless times before. Now, the recklessness of individuals at the TOP of that organization have put our LIVES in jeopardy by prioritizing MONEY over SAFETY. In order to strengthen their position, they’ve worked to create a false equivalence between SAFETY and DISARMAMENT, between our Constitutional Right and financial support for a NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.

 

Talk about effective marketing. How much MONEY did that cost?

 

 

 

MONEY shapes the conversation. MONEY decides who is INCLUDED IN that conversation. MONEY INFORMS you that there’s a conversation to be had on the subject in the FIRST PLACE…

MONEY is spent everyday to make sure you don’t realize that conversation even EXISTS.

Speaking on the issues of Equal Rights for Women in September 2010, Justice Scalia said: “Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t.”

 

Maybe it was truly believed at some time in the past, that the protection of women should be SOLELY the responsibility of men and that women were better off NOT having to worry about taking care of themselves. One could… theoretically… construct a legal argument that would rationalize the SEPARATE STATUS of HALF of the population.

BUT… is there ANY DOUBT as to the question of EQUALITY? The only argument against Equal Rights for Women that passes as SUFFICIENT is, “They ALREADY have it.”

Well, it seems we’re ALL in agreement then… they SHOULD HAVE IT.

Yet they STILL do not.

 

WHY.

 

Imagine if HALF of the United States Senate was NOT given EQUAL STANDING. It might have been easier to pass the Affordable Care Act! It might have been easier to SHUT IT DOWN.

The effect of denying Equality to HALF of the population is- it allows the continuation of agendas that are not in the interest of THE PEOPLE, but they ARE in the interest of people and organizations that would stand to LOSE MONEY if the Constitution suddenly demanded Women must have EQUAL PAY.

MONEY should not define our Legislative Moral Agendas. MONEY should not be the deciding factor in whether someone is WORTHY of Equal Justice Under Law. From the HIGHEST COURT to the local Circuit Court. From CORRUPTION to POSSESSION…

 

… with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL.

 

Not just for SOME or a SELECT FEW. If we BELIEVE it is SO, then we should MAKE IT SO!

If MONEY decides who can have ACCESS to POWER, then controlling who can have ACCESS to the MONEY makes it easier RETAIN POWER by RE-DEFINING the electorate. People who are able to make more MONEY will be able to live in… certain areas where property values are HIGHER. And those who cannot will live in… OTHER locations.

Some locations PRE-DETERMINED, in order to assist lower-income families. Locations that exist within or near ALREADY existing, lower-income neighborhoods. Now, add the ability possessed by legislators to RE-DRAW their OWN DISTRICT LINES every 10 YEARS, and we can see where the problem LIES.

 

Change the district, change the vote totals… change the representation.

Change the AGENDA.

Change the NARRATIVE, CONTROL the conversation.

 

When you consider the HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars made by interests like the pharmaceutical industry or oil and gas companies, and compare that to the MINISCULE investment of TENS of MILLIONS of dollars in a handful of political races, there’s no FINANCIAL RATIONAL for these entities to support causes like Equal Rights for Women, or a $15 minimum wage, or mandating employers provide heath insurance coverage for their employees, or mandating prisons pay the added expense of providing feminine hygiene products to female prisoners.

For the de minimis price of a few campaign contributions, companies can continue to charge $1000 for insulin, while insurance companies are able to deny coverage due to the very pre-existing condition that created the need for that insulin in the first place.

I’m not saying anything NEW, we ALL have eyes to see… but all we have are “If’s and But’s”. We’ve been SOLD the idea that THIS is the way it MUST BE… by the SAME PEOPLE who run for office on our hopes for CHANGE, over, and over again every 2 to 4 years.

“THIS TIME will be different… Just send me BACK for another term!”

“… can we count on YOU for a CONTRIBUTION?”

 

We have MAJORITIES on many issues, and legislation DOES NOT MOVE.

WHY.

 

The MAJORITY of the MAJORITY decides the Legislative Agenda. It doesn’t matter the OVERALL number of Senators who support legislation, if a MAJORITY of leaders in the CONTROLLING PARTY do not approve, the legislation does NOT GET A VOTE.

THE MINORITY decides the agenda for the MAJORITY.

And those leaders are there because they are the BEST FUNDRAISERS, able to secure re-election over multiple terms, having raised HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of dollars for their political organization, and their POLITICAL PARTY. And, of course… it’s all TAX EXEMPT.

 

 

I’m not seeking the Presidency for recognition. I’m not doing this as a way to prove something. I’m doing this because… I found the ANSWER. I figured it out. I SOLVED the problem!

I decided to TRY, to answer the question that no one seems to have been able to properly address. And now, knowing that it CAN BE DONE… I see it as MY DUTY to do everything I can to bring it to the attention of every American Citizen.

To be SILENT at this moment would be nothing short of SURRENDER.

The problem within our rule of law is CLEAR to anyone who knows ANYTHING about our government- The problem is the CORRUPTION. Any system that allows the influence of MONEY to determine who will be allowed to legislate for the rest of us, will inevitably favor those with MONEY over those without.

The Framers were RIGHT… this IS an “experiment”. When our Nation’s existence is viewed in-total, as a set of FACTS and DATA, conclusions can be reached. Recommendations can be made.

Our strength and security is ensured when EVERY CITIZEN is guaranteed access to the ballot. Any system that LIMITS access or attempts to correct, distort, or interpret the WILL of the people, is inherently susceptible to corruption.

 

ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE. EVERY CITIZEN. EVERY ELECTION.

 

To remove the corruption from our system, we must have 100% TAX PAYER FUNDED Federal Elections. Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

Our intellectual debates are decided, not by VOTES, but by who can raise the most MONEY. Who can excite the DONORS? Then, LATER, re-brand or move toward the middle for the general election.

A 20th Century Strategy, employed within an 18th Century electoral system, now being manipulated by 21st Century technology… Where will it go from HERE?

 

“It is their Right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such government, and provide NEW GUARDS for their future Security.”

 

We celebrate our Constitution, not simply because it is OURS. We celebrate our Constitution because it is a document WORTHY of our CELEBRATION!

A document unlike any other that came before it, embodying a genius so profound it has become the STANDARD to which we compare ALL OTHERS that have followed it.

We now have what the Founders did NOT… we have the DATA. We must celebrate because the “Experiment” shows- they were right!

Today, we STAND as PROOF.

 

We must End the Electoral College.

The Case Against the President, Part 4: ‘The President’s Little Black Box’

Official transcript of the YouTube video.

 

Donald Trump began his initial attempt at building a Trump branded property in Moscow, NOT in 2015, but back in 2013. At the Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas, he and members of his Organization met with the family of a Russian Oligarch. The SAME people that would eventually be tied up with another Trump Tower Meeting in June 2016.

A DECADES long dream would finally be realized- A Trump Tower in Moscow. It seemed that the proper paperwork was set to be greenlighted by the necessary Russian Officials… specifically, Vladimir Putin.

No one makes THAT amount of money in Russia without HIS SAY SO.

 

After the project details were agreed to in June 2013, the Trump Organization was well on its way. Mr. Trump was so excited at the prospect of a Luxury Hotel Property in Moscow, on June 18 he Tweeted: “… will (Putin) become my new best friend?”
Screenshot (69)

In October 2013, Mr. Trump went on “The Late Show with David Letterman”.

(See 14:40 mark in the video)

 

Three weeks later, on November 8, 2013, Mr. Trump would be in Russia for the Miss Universe Pageant. This would be the first time Trump’s Beauty Pageant would be held in Russia.

He stayed only one night, at the Ritz Carlton Moscow.

 

Three days later, on November 11, 2013, Trump Tweets to Aras Agalarov about the tower project in Moscow:

Screenshot (70)

Later that day, Aras’ son Emin Agalarov, who preformed for the crowd at the pageant, responded, showing his support for the project as well:

Screenshot (71)

Even though President Putin did not attend Trump’s pageant, he wanted to convey a message to Mr. Trump. Something private. Something personal.

In the days following the Pageant, Aras Agalarov instructed his daughter Sheila, to deliver a BLACK LACQUER RUSSIAN BOX to Mr. Trump in New York, at the Headquarters of the Miss Universe Pageant.

russian-lacquer-box

A little black box… just big enough to hold an envelope. Delivered by the daughter of a Russian Oligarch, from the hands of Vladimir Putin HIMSELF, to Donald J. Trump…

IN NOVEMBER 2013.

I wonder where he came up with the idea that President Putin would want to be his new best friend.

 

Shared adversity and COMMON GOALS help strengthen relationships, and this newly found friendship of theirs would be put to the test just a few months later, when President Putin invaded Ukraine and OCCUPIED CRIMEA.

After the ousting of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich in late February 2014, Putin used the chaos and unrest that followed as COVER and moved to seize Crimea, a clear violation of the law in the eyes of the International Community.

 

On March 6, 2014, President Barack Obama announced the United States would be placing SANCTIONS on Russia, including travel bans and the freezing of assets in the US, Effectively ENDING the Trump Tower Moscow project.

 

On March 17, 2014, President Obama announced ANOTHER round of sanctions, targeting banks, businesses, arms dealers, and oligarchs. This, plus a THIRD round of sanctions on March 30, 2014, would eventually cost the Russian Government, and Putin himself, BILLIONS of dollars in lost income.

It’s around this SAME TIME that Vladimir Putin initiated the Active Measures Interference Campaign in the 2016 US Elections.

One month later, on April 30, 2014, General Michael Flynn announced his resignation as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, effective August 7, 2014.

General Flynn claims he was forced out.

As President Putin said in Helsinki in 2018, “… we should be guided by FACTS.” Witnesses. Testimony. Was there communication between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin BEFORE the 2016 US Presidential Election?

According to President Putin and EVERY member of the Trump Transition Team, there was NO DIRECT COMMUNICATION between members of the campaign and the Russian Government.

It was just TWO INDEPENDENT ACTORS, working toward the SAME GOAL- defeating Hillary Clinton.

Trump was just at the RIGHT PLACE, at the RIGHT TIME, talking with the RIGHT PEOPLE. Working to further a COMMON NARRATIVE… coincidentally.

(See 8:14 mark in the video)

 

“… Putin sent me a beautiful present. With a beautiful note.”

 

It was SO OBVIOUS, every United States Intelligence Agency KNEW what was going on… and the LEADERSHIP in Congress of BOTH PARTIES was briefed at every step of the investigation.

Any suggestion that someone from the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia is absurd… it’s not like any of them could speak their language!

(See 4:30 mark in the video)

 

… STAND UP for the Rule of Law.

 

-End.

 

To Declare a Fact That Already Exists

 

lincoln_2
“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” -Abraham Lincoln

 

Lincoln’s interpretation of the Declaration of Independence is that it’s a LIVING DOCUMENT, and presents a set of goals to be realized over time. A moral guide to interpreting our Constitution. Knowing that ALL Mankind is created EQUAL, and all are subject to misconceived notions and judgements in-error, the Declaration STANDS as the benchmark for which the Constitution should continually STRIVE.

 

That is why the Founders provided a way of correcting it without overthrowing it.

 

It is WITHIN these cherished bounds that I have directed my campaign. No campaign for President could ever convince A MAJORITY of this nation that the experiment has not been a success. We ALL still believe in the underlying principle, that we are on a journey toward realizing a more perfect Union. And ALL of us understand what’s hanging in the balance with our success or failure:

 

Nothing less than the right of ALL humanity to LIVE FREE.

 

We must now secure it, to ensure that generations to come have the chance to STAND UP and defend it as well. It is the Sacred American HONOR carried by EVERY CITIZEN. It’s AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, in definition and in form. To STAND SILENT in this moment would make me complicit in its destruction… I cannot allow that to happen.

 

I believe Mr. Lincoln’s interpretation is correct. As I have searched for precedent and inspiration, I’ve often come back to the mastery of our founding documents. Re-reading what’s been committed to memory by so many, today it seems taken for granted, believed by many to be an entitlement. To such a degree, when used in the context of a political campaign, the Declaration can seem cliché. To some it’s even IRONIC to hear politicians say “All Men are created EQUAL”, because the reality THEY live in, declares they are NOT.

 

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the MEN who pervert the Constitution.”

-Abraham Lincoln

Trump_king

The History of the present KING of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is a History of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

 

 

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the PUBLIC GOOD.

 

 

He has called together Legislative Bodies at PLACES UNUSUAL, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of PUBLIC RECORDS, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

 

 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States, for that purpose OBSTRUCTING the Laws for naturalization of foreigners, refusing to pass others to encourage their migration here.

 

 

He has made Judges dependent on his will ALONE for the tenure of their office.

 

 

He has erected a multitude of NEW OFFICES and sent out swarms of officers to harass our people.

 

 

He has affected to render the Military independent of the Civil Power.

 

 

He has combine with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, giving assent to their Acts of Pretend Legislation.

 

 

For cutting off our trade with ALL Parts of the World. For imposing TAXES on us without our consent.

 

 

Depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of a TRIAL BY JURY.

 

 

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most VALUABLE LAWS, and altering fundamentally the forms of our Government.

 

 

He has abdicated Government here by declaring us out of his protection and waging War against us.

 

 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the LIVES of OUR PEOPLE.

 

 

He has excited domestic insurrections among us.

 

 

He has endeavored to bring on the merciless warfare of UNDISTINGUISHED destruction, of all ages, sexes, and conditions.

 

 

A Prince whose character is thus marked by EVERY ACT which may define a Tyrant, is UNFIT to be the ruler of a FREE PEOPLE.

 

 

We have reminded him of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here, we have conjured him by the ties of our COMMON KINDRED to disavow these usurpations, and he has been DEAF to the Voice of Justice and Consanguinity.

When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the SAME OBJECT, evinces a Design to reduce the people under absolute despotism, it is their RIGHT, it is their DUTY, to throw off such government, and to provide NEW GUARDS for their future security. I shall not be the one who allows to vanish from the face of this Earth, mankind’s last best chance to LIVE FREE.

Let us re-affirm that pledge to each other, of our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred HONOR… and make sure it STANDS for ANOTHER 200 YEARS.

One More Year…

Today marks one more year since the bloody events of Charlottesville.

Everyone already knows this. I’m not gonna be able to provide some kind of keen insight or deeply inspirational speech about the evils of White Supremacy, nothing more than what others have said before. Again, and again, and again….

Anyone who has followed this campaign knows where I STAND-

 

Racism has no place in The White House.

 

White Supremacy has no place in an evolved society.

 

… and everyone knows where Donald J. Trump STANDS.

So I’ve spent the day soul-searching, contemplating what has transpired since 2016, since January 2017, since Helsinki, since Charlottesville… and instead of politicizing and waving my hands above my head to calling attention to the obvious, I’ve been working to make it right. FOCUSING my attention on the PROBLEM.

Hoping to HONOR those we have lost by ensuring it will not be allowed to continue, and that it can NEVER happen again.

 

Her name is Heather Heyer, and she died protesting BIGOTRY. May she rest in peace.

National Security and the Electoral College

The idea of ending the Electoral College has come up now and again in several publications, and all have offered many points for and against it.

One point has NOT been fully addressed: National Security.

 

Federalist #68: “Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly in the desire in foreign powers to gain an imposter ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”

 

They knew prying eyes were watching, and even from WITHIN there would be those who would still favor ending independence, and could rally political support to that end.

 

The Framers of the Constitution envisioned a very real worst case scenario:

A candidate for President of the United States, backed by the wealth and power of a foreign adversary, could deceive a majority of the 13 States, and subjugate the Union.

 

Imagine the wealth and power of the King of England, expended in an election system with no real security measures to prevent an influence campaign within our major cities… and how to secure the integrity of the ballots themselves? Transport between countries took months, between States… weeks.

Between totals and recounts, distances traveled to report… on horseback, of course having a handful of Electors, decided within the States, by the States’ representatives would be more efficient and less prone to corruption. Electors, decided by Elected officials within the States, elected by the People.

 

Federalist #39: “It is SUFFICIENT for such a government that the persons administering it should be appointed, either directly or indirectly, by the people.”

 

At that time, they feared the level of wealth once possessed only by the heads of monarchies. There’s no way they could have imagined the massive amounts of wealth and power held by corporations and financial institutions of today. Nor could they have envisioned the ability to communicate and interact with people, in real time, at the speed of light.

 

Combine those facts with Social Media Marketing.

 

Candidates for office, running on contributions from DARK MONEY interests, propped up by those with the means to support a candidate, and also the party that candidate represents. ALL working to acquire DATA on voters, in every State, in every city. Working to make sure their ads are seen, and their candidate makes that trip to Sioux Falls next week, and where their OPINIONS should go… in order to “keep numbers UP”.

 

Every obstacle that has been erected to oppose “cabal, intrigue, and corruption” within our elections has served to create a barrier, a financial BURDEN to overcome for any candidate seeking office. Those with wealth decide who the rest of us should vote upon.

 

‘Red Sauce’ or ‘Blue Sauce’… “It’s your choice, we picked ’em both!”

 

 

Federalist #39: “It is ESSENTIAL to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it.”

 

The Framers tried, in GOOD FAITH, to prevent the situation we find ourselves in TODAY. They created the PATH that gave rise to the very thing they tried to PREVENT.

To read their words, and understand their fears and worries about what could happen IF, we must remember… NO ONE had done this before! It was all just theoretical ideals and beliefs, emblazoned on a piece of parchment. They had NO PROOF it would work, they had no DATA to draw upon.

 

Today, after more than 230 years, we have that DATA. We can see where the faults lie, and we can see where we must make AMENDS. Our strength and security is ensured when EVERY CITIZEN is guaranteed access to the ballot. Any system that LIMITS access or attempts to correct, distort, or interpret the WILL of the people, is inherently susceptible to corruption.

 

There is only ONE METHOD that will ensure our national security, and the continued success of our Constitution: ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE.

We must End The Electoral College.

On Russian Active Measures Campaigns

 

and Interference

In the 2016 US Election

 

Volume 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Report of the Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) on Russian Active Measures Campaigns and Interference in the 2016 U.S. Election”

 

I_page_3I_page_36BBB_I_page_38

 

According to the report, the Russian Government exploited the seams between federal authorities and protections for the states. BY DESIGN, the individual states were left to decide what action should be taken to stop interference, and how serious the threats being relayed from DHS and the FBI really were.

 

I_page_39

i_page_54-e1564822530805.png

 

If we do not STAND UP and PROTECT the states, the United States Government is derelict in its DUTY.

 

 

 

 

 

The Threat We Face

 

 

 

T_page_8

 

THIS is the threat we face. This is just ONE ACTOR, and this is just the information that has been VOLUNTEERED… the full scope of what has happened, and what is ONGOING, has not yet been fully understood because reporting is NOT mandatory.

 

E_page_11

 

“IF some states evaluated their logs incompletely or inaccurately, then DHS might have NO INDICATION…” Financially speaking, smaller states might have a harder time dedicating the necessary FUNDING to secure elections. CRIMINALLY speaking, that’s 50 different chances for success.

 

T_page_10

They were “casing the joint”. Watching, waiting until the OWNERS were out of town… or NOT PAYING ATTENTION due to some sort of DISTRACTION… like an “emergency”.

 

T_page_12T_page_23

 

In at least ONE INSTANCE they were on the BRINK of what they were looking for:

 

T_page_24

 

IF the Russians can’t change vote totals, why should we be so concerned?

Chaos on election day. The ability to RAISE DOUBT in our MINDS about our system… to make EVERY AMERICAN question their national self-worth.

 

T_page_34

 

Consider the following scenario:

 

t_page_23-2.png

 

“… hitting the SBE IP addresses 5 TIMES PER SECOND, 24 HOURS A DAY…” for a month.

The “… IT staff took the website and database offline.” It was being probed and ATTACKED for THREE WEEKS before detection. A sophisticated operation run by a FOREIGN NATION is what we are seeing. WHAT IF this were to play out in the days before an election? Strategically, HOW should we answer that?

 

… with THIS?

 

T_page_57

 

The RUSSIAN GRU, against Jill down at CITY HALL?! I wish her luck, BUT… she’s going to need some ASSISTANCE!

 

AAA_Threat_we_face_2

 

“Russia’s going to DO IT AGAIN because they think this was successful.”

 

The vulnerabilities found in your PC are also found in our election systems. The level of technical knowledge required to carry out these operations is HIGH, but once understood they can be applied universally… all you need to do is LEARN THE CODE.

 

T_page_42

 

… and they ARE learning. Everything they can get their hands on.

 

T_page_26

 

When you consider their goals and what has happened since the 2016 election…

They achieved their mission objectives.

 

aaa_threat_we_face.png

 

… and this is only ONE BATTLE. We have elections every TWO YEARS.

They WILL be back.

 

 

 

 

 

“When someone says, ‘we’re from the government and we’re here to help,’ it’s generally not a good thing.”

 

 

 

Why IS that? Oh… right. Because when government is executed POORLY:

 

image

 

Because LIVES ARE AT RISK. On this I don’t mean to sound partisan, because I can sit here and cuss out BUSH, and YOU could sit there and cuss CLINTON… and then back round we’ll go again, with the NEXT president chasing the SAME SCANDLES… chasing our OWN TAILS. BOTH, extreme examples of their party. BOTH elected by a MINORITY, and at the end of the day, BOTH presidents were correct. BOTH seen in the eyes of THE LAW, as legally JUST in their actions. Our legal framework, stretched and bent in the hands of two VERY DIFFERENT individuals… BOTH backed by the SAME CORRUTION.

 

Now imagine if we were to elect someone without ALL THAT BAGGAGE. Someone who represents the MAJORITY of the nation and finds the actions of BOTH PARTIES to be… lacking.

 

 

Government is NOT THE PROBLEM.

The problem, is the CORRUPTION of both MAN and INSTITUTION.

 

Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

Because the CHOICE is QUITE CLEAR… we must CELEBRATE OUR RULE OF LAW.

The Committee clearly expresses the benefits of DECENTRALIZED ELECTION SYSTEMS:

 

E_page_5

 

… and I AGREE. The unique character of EVERY STATE must be respected and it is IGNORANT for the federal government to presume to know what’s best for everyone. But this problem is bigger than any ONE STATE:

 

E_page_49

E_page_28

 

The negligence, limited ability, or EGO of officials in ONE STATE could disenfranchise HALF the nation. To do away with the benefits we currently have would be FOOLISH… so we must seek to add a NATIONAL LAYER OF SECURITY. An UMBRELLA OF PROTECTION that encompasses everyone, equally. A uniform, verifiable level of SECURITY that centers on the NEEDS of EACH STATE so they can incorporate their systems seamlessly, and communication can start to FLOW.

 

E_page_60

 

E_page_55E_page_55 (2)

 

We will not sacrifice LIBERTY for SECURITY. We will RE-AFFIRM our commitment to LIBERTY by ensuring it STAYS SECURE.

We must HANG TOGETHER:

 

E_page_20 (2)E_page_4 (2)

 

This is a YEAR-ROUND operation:

 

E_page_5(2)

Our response should be 24-7-365.

 

Consider what’s at stake… the every EXISTANCE of our Constitution. We are engaged in an intellectual war of WORDS. The societal upheaval and political turmoil are side-effects. Fear and division, being stoked by corruption and greed… causing real-life casualties via our inability to unite and solve problems.

 

 

 

 

To Establish a Clearly Defined Protocol

 

E_page_60 (2)

E_page_54

 

“For want of the price of tea and a slice, the old man died.” –Pink Floyd, Us and Them.

 

I support ALL conclusions reached within the SSCI report. My campaign has advocated for many of the proposed safeguards from its inception and I believe we must act NOW rather than later. In order to CLARIFY… to ensure the WILL of the people, we must know elections are secure. LET THERE BE NO DOUBT! When the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE is heard loud and clear, the SOLUTIONS to our problems will be REALIZED.

 

E_page_54 (2)E_page_58 (2)

 

ANY Election Security plan we choose to implement should include an ACTIVE DEFENSE STRATEGY to compliment our PASSIVE DEFENSES. Digital threats evolve constantly, hence the constant UPDATE NOTIFICATIONS on all of our electronic devices. ACTIVELY seeking out new threats and staying ahead of the curve, being prepared for “… the attack after the NEXT”, will ensure our systems stay on the cutting edge and maintain invulnerability. Maintaining Security is less costly than the alternative.

While working in concert with the private sector is always a good thing, it should be under the direct supervision and leadership of the United States Government. Independent verification of compliance, assembly of products, planning and strategy development, seasonal work force employment, among many others… but bulk of the load should be carried by the Federal Government.

 

P_page_58

 

If we’re not careful, that “vulture” could turn out to be a “Russian Bear” in disguise.

 

P_page_57

 

Placing a burden of such magnitude on state governments will make an already detrimental fiscal situation even worse. If it’s voluntary, then officials will elect to put it off due to other priorities that may or may not be in the interest of other states.

Securing our elections is in the interest of EVERY STATE.

Every proposed solution can be implemented, and MUST be implemented. MONEY will decide IF and WHEN they will be.

 

E_page_59E_page_59 (2)E_page_61

 

$400 MILLION DOLLARS upfront and $20 MILLION PER YEAR every year after… that sounds like a SMALL PRICE TO PAY for OPEN and SECURE election systems.

 

 

 

 

 

In Conclusion

 

C_page_39

 

“One state official said, ‘We need to walk a fine line between being forthcoming to the public and protecting voter confidence.'”

We can now see when decisions of such importance are left in the hands of a FEW individuals, it endangers ALL OF US. If we had full capabilities to monitor and detect the developing situation with Russian interference, we could have informed the people and they could have decided the best course of action at the BALLOT BOX.

VOTER EMPOWERMENT.

Instead, they were kept in the dark and forced to make an UNINFORMED DECISION.

 

The United States must establish its dominance in the world of cybersecurity and maintain operational supremacy so it can act decisively to INFORM THE PEOPLE in a timely manner. THE PEOPLE will always make the best decision when they are FULLY INFORMED.

 

When in doubt, FULL DISCLOSURE-

LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE.

Official Campaign Statement on the SSCI Report on Russian Active Measures in the 2016 Election: “United We STAND…”

 

..American socketWhat’s the FIRST THING that comes to mind when you see one of these?

 

“SWEET… hey! Can I plug my phone in?”

“OUCH! Don’t put your finger in there!”

Or maybe, just simply “… does it WORK?”

 

There are MANY questions that can come to mind. An endless stream of possibilities of all shapes and sizes. Thankfully, there’s one question no one has think about:

 

“If I plug this in, will it be destroyed?”

 

A consistent flow of POWER. From my living room here in KCK, to the halls of Harvard or Yale. Wherever you see one of these, whatever device you plug into it will get a pre-determined, regulated flow of power. No matter what State you’re in, in every city, in every building, as required by law.

This assurance makes creating ways of utilizing that POWER much easier and more effective. Producing products tailor-made to work specifically in EACH STATE would be costly, and consumers would have to remember WHAT can be used and in WHICH State. Every time we move to a different State, we’d have to ADAPT to a different regulation of POWER. Some States would have MORE power flowing to the PEOPLE, and others… LESS.

Some States believe government isn’t the answer to ANY of our problems, so there might be some States where the guarantee of an even distribution of POWER doesn’t exist. Some cities in that State might receive TOO MUCH power at one particular time, while at the SAME TIME other cities have NO POWER. Of course elected officials would want to make sure ALL citizens had access to SOME power. After all… the interests of the people who DOLE that power out have to be considered, too…

The establishment of a nationwide infrastructure to provide consistent POWER for ALL PEOPLE paved the way for advances in technology that were unimaginable before it was accomplished. People lived their entire lives not knowing that power was available to them. Once it was established that EVERYONE should have access, people began to see the POTENTIAL that power held, and they IMAGINED new ways for that power to be harnessed, directed toward making the lives of EVERYONE better.

 

Our Government ensures the flow of POWER for THE PEOPLE.

 

Un-regulated flow of POWER is dangerous. If not given PROPER OVERSIGHT it can spark flames that can consume entire cities. That’s why great care and attention should be paid to EVERY STEP of the process; from the point of creation, to its distribution, to the utilization of that POWER by the products we’ve created from it… as well as what will BE created from it.

The good realized from an un-regulated flow of power is miniscule compared to what CAN be achieved when that SAME POWER is harnessed and guided under a watchful eye. Today, we CELEBRATE because it’s equally available for ALL, and we’re appalled when we find it’s been withheld from others.

 

Before the last World War, the impetus for what would eventually become the infrastructure for the electrification of the entire country, came from OUR government. The advancements in the lives of every citizen since have been astonishing, and it begs the question: “Is your life better off NOW than it was 75 YEARS AGO?”

If we spend just a little bit of time NOW, and focus ALL of our passions toward achieving the unthinkable… imagine what could be 75 years FROM now.

 

Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

End The Electoral College.
