Day One

I believe the three previous Administrations overused the power of the Executive Order. Then again, the DEADLOCK in Congress forced their hand in many instances. In others, it was a usurpation of the Checks and Balances of our Constitution, and Congress has been more than happy to rid themselves of the POLITICAL BURDENS of endless war, as well as accountability for their actions.

Bottom line… IT ALL STINKS.

I see the Executive Order as a tool to deliver justice where it is obvious it should be done, and it is clear a court of law would eventually make it so.

The motivation for the President of the United States to issue an Executive Order must ALWAYS come from a desire to protect MORE Liberty for MORE citizens everytime they choose to do so. The beauty of our Constitution can also be its DETRIMENT. Due Process can take many years and ALL are entitled to that process…

And in the mean time, LIVES can be destroyed. Damage caused in people’s lives that can NEVER be undone… needlessly.

That is where the discretion of a LEADER, taking the pen and striking true, SHOULD be used. Never AGAINST, but in the interests OF, and for the sake of the people… especially for those with NO VOICE.

 

 

My first official act in office will be the complete and total criminalization of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the United States.

A crime punishable by 10 years imprisonment for performing the procedure, subjecting someone to the procedure, or participating in the act of subjecting someone to the procedure.

This will include the “vacation” procedures as well.

The Freedom of Religion, the Freedom of NO RELIGION… the LIBERTY to walk that path and find the TRUTH for yourself… THAT should be a guaranteed right for EVERYONE.

A belief can change. Once subjected to FGM, that can NEVER CHANGE.

So it must end.

 

 

My second act as President will be to end the deployment of Armed Forces at our Southern Border.

The “crisis” is not at the Border. The “crisis” lies within the policies being implemented. The “crisis” is the corruption of our current leadership, and their inability to set aside pasrtisan politics to SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

I believe we can solve this problem WITHOUT armed, boots-on-the-ground, military force.

 

 

Our Rule of Law is what ensures our Freedom. To ignore injustice when it stares you in the face makes you COMPLICIT. That is why I have taken up the causes of Equal Rights for Women and protecting the Basic Human Rights of Children.

To be SILENT makes us COMPLICIT.

On DAY ONE, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order to Close Guantanamo Bay. EIGHT YEARS LATER he was still trying to get it done… WHY.

I cannot be the Commander-in-Chief of a nation that declares ALL MANKIND is created EQUAL and turn a blind eye to indefinite detention. I cannot turn a blind eye to violations of established international law. Laws forged by our great- and grand-parents at the end of the last World War. Laws that ensured THEIR children’s safety…

We must now re-affirm our commitment to those laws… for OURS.

 

I will issue an Executive Order closing Guantanamo Bay prison,

ordering all remaining prisoners be given Due Process in the American Justice System; and where the verdict requires, they will be secured within the Department of Corrections at a supermax facility. And if they are found innocent, they will be set free as required by our Constitution… because I believe in our Rule of Law, and I know JUSTICE must prevail.

 

Included with the closing of Guantanamo, will be the closing of every immigrant holding facility opened since 2016.

All migrants being held MUST be processed appropriately, in the sunlight, with the goal of ensuring individual security and national security, then RELEASED, to be fully processed at a later date.

Let us begin this process, to start the path to citizenship, and begin healing and repairing the damage that has been done.

 

As a nation, we are STRONGER than the fear and anger that tries to divide us. Walk a mile in their shoes, and consider what YOU would do if this were done to you…
I cannot let it STAND.

Now is the Time for Action

Images from MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”, broadcast date July 2, 2019.

The reporting by Rachel Maddow and her staff has shown us, the officials who speak FOR THE AGENCY say they do not believe the conditions are as bad as reported in the media.

 

What will be their explanation NOW?

 

NOW that there is an OFFICIAL REPORT… MANDATED OVERSIGHT done on OUR BEHALF… what will they SAY?

Personally… I don’t believe the Inspector General’s report”??

70+ people, held in rooms with a FIRE SAFETY CODE CAPACITY of 41, by LAW for no more than 72 hours…

SOME HELD FOR 40 DAYS.

With no showers. Quite literally only the SHIRT ON THEIR BACK… in a facility just down the road from a SUBURBAN TEXAS STRIP MALL, in the SUBURBS… people are being forced to live like this-

NOW is the time for ACTION.

 

 
Speaker Pelosi

This evening, I sent the following email to Speaker Pelosi, asking her to begin the process that will bring an END to this inhumanity. Whether we like it or NOT, we have an obligation to SPEAK OUT when we see things that are NOT RIGHT… so it won’t happen to someone ELSE.

I’ve asked the Speaker to begin the impeachment process. The leader of THIS NATION should never STAND SILENT while CHILDREN SUFFER, as Donald J. Trump has done.

 

… god bless this glorious nation, and guide us back to where we once belonged.

 

 

 

 

I have, just now, seen the reporting on the Inspector General’s report titled “Management Alert- DHS Needs to Address Dangerous Overcrowding and Prolonged Detention of Children and Adults in the Rio Grande Valley”.

Madam Speaker,

Far be it from me, a lowly presidential candidate… an occupation of such SIGNIFICANCE, that our numbers now total almost a DIME-A-DOZEN… to tell YOU how to do your job. I have FULL CONFIDENCE in your ability to lead this nation through its most difficult hours… as do the MAJORITY of Americans.

I do not wish to assume I know everything, nor do I presume any particular outcome. But I DO wish to reach that point, where I CAN KNOW, with an elevated level of certainty and integrity, what crimes have been committed by the President of the United States and his Administration since the election of November 8, 2016.

Because those crimes, committed AFTER Donald J. Trump was ELEVATED to President-elect by THE PEOPLE, become HIGH CRIMES.

What the IG Report shows is a DIRECT PRODUCT of an INDIVIDUAL who has been implicated in crimes, surrounded by crimes, and has employed currently serving criminals.

This Administration has intentionally enforced separation of families at the border as a deterrent, to stop immigration and asylum seekers.

This Administration has IMPRISONED FAMILIES with NO CHARGES, other than one’s that are inflated and TRUMPED up.

… and, whereas he will not end this voluntarily; Speaker Pelosi, on behalf of the CHILDREN in those facilities…

Please begin the Impeachment Process.

Let us begin the process that will ultimately be used to END this madness… so we can act with the knowledge necessary to save lives NOW, and make sure this can never happen again.
Thank you for your time,
JC

The Case FOR The People

I hear what they’re saying… free tuition for ALL, free healthcare for ALL, debit forgiveness… They want to give away the STORE! To please you… to please “THEM”… to please ME.

But how many times have they promised us THE MOON, then stuck US with the bill on a $400 HAMMER? Talked about being greeted as “liberators”, only to be kicked out by THEIR elected government.

Assuring us that there WAS WMD… but they must have DISPOSED of it.

All of them are clambering around to take a shot at the “Big Banks” and “Big Tech” and “reign in Wall St.” Just as they did after 2008? Statutes and regulations passed, then slowly degraded through DE-FUNDING, eroding protections, issuing fines that amount to “pocket change” when (and IF) laws are found to be broken… actions taken by elected officials BEHOLDEN to the SAME entities for THEIR re-election. It is a COLD HARD TRUTH-

MONEY DECIDES OUR ELECTIONS.

After the Speakership of Paul Ryan ended, for the FIRST TIME in 10 years The House held a hearing on GUN VIOLENCE. For 10 years, The House did NOT actively investigate solutions to PREVENT GUN DEATHS. The Dickey Amendment forbids the CDC to FUND RESEARCH into PREVENTING GUN DEATHS… while the NRA spent over $30 MILLION in the 2016 election, donating to re-elect politicians loyal to their FUNDS.

In 2009, our elected officials passed the TARP Act to “bail out” the banks. Most news outlets did not call out the fact that these institutions were INSURED… on top of the bailout, they were REIMBURSED for their losses.

… my mortgage is STILL underwater.

Donald Trump inflated the value on a $20 MILLION property to over $200 MILLION in an attempt to secure a loan to buy a FOOTBALL TEAM.

Meanwhile I couldn’t write off snow tires as a work expense for my wife, a PEDIATRIC INTENSIVE CARE NURSE who was designated a critical team member, required to show up during ANY natural disaster… guess I need a better TAX MAN.

 

In 2003, when my wife and I purchased our home, we knew the school district wasn’t the best, but we hoped we could rehabilitate our house and turn it into a profit, then move somewhere with better schools before our kids reached that age. The housing market has not returned to where it once was, and the schools have not improved.

We decided the work on our house could wait, and we enrolled our boys in a private school. It’s NOT EASY… financially speaking. But not everyone HAS that option! Many families are STUCK with whatever their elected officials provide for education. Elected officials, who are influenced by the FUNDS of wealthy groups who have earned their wealth… in PRIVATE, FOR-PROFIT EDUCATION.

History books are compiled and decided, curriculum, accountability, and standards decided by appointees… appointed by elected officials, BEHOLDEN TO FUNDRAISING.

The DONOR over the VOTER.

The people on the ballot, when it comes time for us to vote, are there because they were the BEST FUNDRAISER. At the beginning, in the primaries, in the LOCAL race for State Rep or State Atty General. MONEY decided who COULD run, and ultimately who DID run.

Look now at the Democratic Primary Debates. The idea of FUNDRAISING deciding who should have the HONOR of addressing the PEOPLE… couldn’t they have just as easily employed a polling/survey method of SOME type?

“If you want your VOICE to COUNT, you better throw in a BUCK!”

INSERT ISSUE HERE ______. IF a politician can manipulate a particular issue in such a way that it motivates DONORS to DONATE to the PARTY, then that issue will NOT BE RESOLVED. It will continue to be “on the verge ” of being “taken away” or you will be “forced to submit” to it ANY DAY NOW…

“… so you’d better throw in a BUCK!”

 

The question is… are we ready to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?

The system WORKS, so well in fact, the FATAL FLAWS within it have become OBVIOUS to anyone of GOOD FAITH. We must make a CHOICE.

We can either fundamentally alter our system in an attempt to legislate a solution to every possible flaw that could arise, while continuing to correct mistakes AFTER they have presented themselves…

OR

We can CHANGE the way we CHOOSE the people we elect to represent us. Ensure the VOTERS have the ultimate say in EVERY STEP of the election process…

 

From PRIMARY ELECTION to GENERAL ELECTION.

WE FUND THE CANDIDATES.

Every Federal election.

EVERY time.

 

Give EVERY candidate EQUAL ACCESS to election funding and the press, and debates will focus on solutions to issues, not stoking fear and anger… pointing fingers instead of TAKING ACTION.

Any candidate who runs on a platform like that will be CLEARLY exposed by full public scrutiny… of their message, of their policies and positions… and without the filter of DARK MONEY. FUNDS donated by people who might prefer it if… SOME people didn’t know they were donating to such a cause. Groups and individuals who DONATE to campaigns on BOTH SIDES, expecting to buy influence with whomever wins the election… because the POLITICAL PARTIES need money, too.

 

Over the course of the last 16 MONTHS of this campaign, I’ve posted 100 entries here on my website and Tweeted over 15,000 Tweets, clarifying my position on every topic, from Kavanaugh to Parkland. From disenfranchisement in Georgia to disenfranchisement in Dodge City, Kansas. I’ve attempted to be OPEN and HONEST about my positions and have encouraged folks to press me for clarification if needed and will continue to do so. Even though it could be seen as a political cop-out, ducking and dodging policy positions so as not to be tied down to ONE position over the OTHER… I question the entire PREMISE OF THE DEBATE on EVERY ISSUE being tossed around right now. The desire of every candidate to pin down EVERY position on EVERY issue seems premature…

Don’t forget, the United States Senate is where good legislation goes to DIE.

The president ALONE does NOT make the Law. Where do these Senators expect to find the bi-partisan support necessary to FUND all of these campaign promises? BILLIONS on Trump’s wall… TRILLIONS on tuition forgiveness?

What about the SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS that have created the ASTRONOMICAL COST of secondary education? And the financial institutions left unchecked to take advantage of the unsuspecting and vulnerable?

A Band-Aid won’t fix the KNIFE IN OUR BACK… and back ’round we go again, back to the attack on the MAIN financial tool middle class Americans have relied on for the last 75+ years for our social advancement- INCREASING HOME EQUITY. Homeowners can only do SO MUCH to make that happen. A large part of it relies on the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT to do it’s part by making communities SAFER and keeping INFRASTRUCTURE up-to-date and IN GOOD REPAIR, among MANY others.

The NEXT President of The United States should NOT be the candidate who says, “I went out and listened to what ORDINARY AMERICANS have to say.” The next President of The United States should already know what’s on the mind of Ordinary Americans… because THAT’S WHO THEY ARE. Because MY SURVIVAL is tied directly to YOURS.

WE are the BALANCE upon which the entire system is judged…

What do we want our government to LOOK LIKE?

WHO should our government work FOR?

 

Is our system what we want it to BE? Remove the CORRUPTION and restore HONOR in governance… and we will discover how much MORE our system of governance can BE.

THE PEOPLE, and their UNIVERSAL ACCESS to the ballot, become the SECURITY SYSTEM protecting our Constitutional Democracy. Ensuring FAIR and EQUAL REPRESENTATION, based NOT on DOLLARS… but on EACH OTHER.

 

ONE CITIZEN= ONE VOTE

 

We MUST End The Electoral College.

A Day of Remembrance

 

Today I had to teach my kids that our nation’s history books are created by a panel of people nominated by ELECTED OFFICIALS, who are dependent upon FUNDRAISING. That’s the ONLY REASON I could come up with… to explain WHY I was not told the story of June 19, 1865. To explain why I had never heard the phrase Juneteenth.

 

 

Today the House Judiciary took the FIRST STEPS in a process to understand what we need to do, as a NATION, to heal the wounds cause by the GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED practice of SLAVERY. An institution that has caused GENERATIONAL DAMAGE to Americans of African Descent, and has lessoned the HONOR of our Constitution.

HR 40 would establish a Presidential Commission to investigate what must be done to make amends for injustices enabled by OUR Rule of Law. To HEAL, we must first CLEAN THE WOUND. We must find the answers so we can move FORWARD TOGETHER, and solve the injustices we continue to see LIVESTREAMED by on-lookers and by-standers.

 

 

They do these things to CITIZENS of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! TODAY… black people. TOMORROW…

STAND UP and SPEAK OUT! When you STAND UP and defend the rights of others, you defend those rights for YOURSELF. The ONLY WAY to ensure your rights is to ensure them FOR US ALL.

I believe the practice of slavery was horrifying, as do the MAJORITY of Americans. Let us find the path to UNDERSTANDING. To ACKNOWLEDGE the sins of our PAST, RESTORE JUSTICE in the hearts and minds of ALL CITIZENS, and TEACH OUR CHILDREN why we remember and WHY we must NEVER FORGET.

To establish our intention and demonstrate our RESOLVE, I believe we should establish Juneteenth as a Paid Federal Holiday, and dedicate it as a day of remembrance and a celebration of the expansion of Liberty.

… I don’t need the conclusions of a commission to determine THAT.

Seventy-five years ago, courage was defined on a chalk-white beachhead off the coast of France. Today, we pay tribute to the fallen, give thanks to the survivors, and remember the unimaginable that they faced THAT MORNING, seventy-five years ago.

They were called, by a higher calling. Yes, a command was given by a man, but that order was put forth by the supreme counsel that sits in judgment of us all. And those who would rise to the occasion when that order was passed down, were rewarded with the HONOR and GLORY that comes with such an act of sacrifice.

Today, we are the inheritors of their bounty.

Our WORLD remains FREE, because their CONTINENT REMAINS FREE. And we remember their BRAVERY and what they faced that morning, not to be boastful or to intimidate. We honor and remember that morning so it may never happen again… it must NEVER happen again.

 

A CLASH of technology and warfare made the FIRST WORLD WAR a testament to the fragility of the human form; as well as a showcase for the depravity and ingenuity of the human mind, to conceive so many ways to do harm.

FORGETTING THE PAST, as horrifying as it was, seemed the best way to avoid it happening again. Apathy. Lethargy, protectionism and isolationism. BLIND IGNORANCE in the face of apparent hostility…

The monument shows us HOW they failed.

The echoes of our ancestors tell us how we should proceed. THEIR failures are now OUR TREASURE. Their ignorance need not be OURS to bear… we have seen that show before, and we KNOW HOW IT ENDS:

Today, we CELEBRATE a HARD FOUGHT PEACE. May it STAND for seventy-five MORE!

What’s on YOUR mind?

 

 

 

It’s NOT just a bunch of “crystal-grippin’ hippie nonsense”… there really does seem to be something to it!

Consider a calculator. We can understand physical relationships between ourselves, objects, and other worlds. We can PLAN. We can BUILD. We can calculate trajectory, distance, fuel consumption, and place ourselves on a heavenly body… ALL with a calculator.

A Newtonian Calculator. The calculations of Einstein, the predictions of Hubble. All can be understood. The calculations of the REAL.

 

That calculator becomes TRASH in the world of the subatomic!

 

 

In a world where answers are only right ~3/4 of the time. Where the observer can only know ONE ANSWER and not BOTH. “… but I WANT to know how fast it is AND where it’s at!” … sorry! I’d like to tell you, but I can only GUESS.

THAT world seems foreign and bizarre… but that world is ALSO the world of the REAL. Even though we don’t SEE it, it goes on within us, around us, and THROUGH us, everyday.

Because we are made OF IT, that is part of our world. A world where two objects are entangled, and the connection is felt by BOTH… no matter how far apart they are. In a world where POSSIBILITY best determines the outcome of a particular set of circumstances, no conclusion is ever strictly ONE or THE OTHER. There is no CONCRETE answer… but the odds DO favor ONE result OVER the other!

INTUITION plays a key role alongside KNOWLEDGE. Observation effects outcomes, and KNOWING THAT helps decide what outcome we will SEE…

What kind of calculator could do all THAT? What would a “quantum calculator” even LOOK LIKE?
Hydrogen_Density_Plots

 

Within the world inside our atoms, possibility of differing charges come together… Positive charges, negative charges. Left spinning charges, right spinning charges. Coming together in multiple DIFFERING combinations, each time forming a perfectly functioning particle. Then joining together once again in a larger set of multiple combinations, creating the building blocks OUR genetic information is encoded WITHIN…

It’s in our DNA!

It is very real, and it is very powerful! It suggests BOTH ANSWERS can be correct. It is up to the OBSERVER to determine what shall BE! Right now EVERYTHING is possible, just like it will be again TOMORROW… WE are the Quantum Calculators.

 

Amazing, the BRILLIANCE and intuition found within OUR Constitution!

… well, so to speak!
