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?”

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:

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

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.

“Separate is Inherently UNEQUAL.”

On Election Security

 

 

A policy centered review of the

 

 

SSCI Report

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

T_page_11

 

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.

In an attempt to secure voting machines, FMR DHS Sec. Johnson designated them as critical infrastructure, opening up more assistance to states who needed it.

The move was seen by some as an attempted hostile takeover.

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

“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: Celebrating Our First Year and First Campaign Interview.

Even though May 15, 2018, is the signature date at the bottom of the political organization’s founding documents, the decision was made on February 17, 2018. In my HEART, that is the date I began this journey, regardless of the date the paperwork was filed.

As the official anniversary of the campaign approaches, I am excited to share a link to my FIRST CAMPAIGN INTERVIEW-

2020 Election: Meet the Candidates with Paul Duddridge

 

Despite the technical issues, we had a great conversation on several topics, including the border wall, campaign finance, the Equal Rights Amendment, and ending the Electoral College. Mr. Duddridge is an avid supporter of Trump’s policies and agenda, but it was good to see that COMMON SENCE is alive and well!

No matter where our opinions fall within the political paradigm, we ALL seem to agree on ONE THING- Remove the CORRUPTION in our elections, and the system will better serve THE PEOPLE.

For more information on press availability, or clarification on any specific issues I have not yet addressed, feel free to drop me a line and I will make every effort to address your concerns. As DONATIONS start to roll in, I plan on taking this show on the road! As dates and locations become available, I will post them HERE and also on Twitter. And, as always…

On Thursday, April 18, 2019, the Special Counsel’s Office released their report on Russian interference in the 2016 US elections. For weeks preceding the release, the president, the GOP, the Attorney General of the United States, the president’s legal counsel, and MANY MORE have said the report exonerated the president. “NO COLLUSION! NO OBSTRUCTION!” To anyone who believes this:

I urge you to READ THE REPORT.

Take to the task with the frame of mind of proving the people who believe what’s in the report, wrong. DEDICATE yourself to understanding EVERY ASPECT of what is in Volume #1 of the report. Because it lays out in a STEP-BY-STEP, PERSON-BY-PERSON timeline, who knew WHAT, and WHEN they knew it.

It becomes PAINFULLY OBVIOUS that Donald Trump has been LYING.

EVERY person interviewed by the Special Counsel, people who surrounded Trump during the campaign and during the transition, ALL of them were AWARE of Russia’s desire to help Trump win the election. EVERY campaign staff member made it CLEAR, to anyone reaching out on behalf of, or directly from the Russian government, any communication was BUSINESS ONLY. And EVERY person interviewed was certain that Trump WAS NOT INVOLVED…

EVERY person interviewed said so.

EVERY person said Trump DID NOT KNOW they had communicated with Russians, or if he did know, it was in conjunction with the “Trump Tower: Moscow” project that was ONGOING through June 2016. The project that he LIED ABOUT publicly when he said he had no business with Russia.

Flynn_Sanctions_2016
Volume #1, page 171.

ABOVE: THIS was the internal response of the President-elect’s team after President Obama announced the United States would impose sanctions on Russia for meddling in our elections. A CLEAR disregard for ESTABLISHED LAW, honored by BOTH SIDES OF THE ISLE.

THEY KNOWINGLY WORKED AGAINST THE ORDERS OF A SITTING PRESIDENT

CLEARLY, people within the campaign were ACTIVELY seeking to work with the Russians. Attempts were made by the President-elect’s STAFF to conduct BUSINESS with a FOREIGN ADVERSARY,

But NOT the President-elect… HEAD of the Campaign. 

 

Seychelles_Mueller
Volume #1, page 156.

 

EVERY person interviewed made sure to express the fact that Donald Trump did NOT communicate with Russia and he was unaware of their attempts. All while communicating via word-of-mouth, or via encrypted private communications apps that don’t save messages intentionally.

 

NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE! NO COMMUNICATIONS!

 

“… so what? It’s just dirt on a rival campaign. Besides, they’d NEVER BEEN in government before. THEY DIDN’T KNOW THE LAW.”

What they were offered, and what they sought, is an abstract concept. They were seeking INFORMATION… DATA. They were seeking “something of value” for their campaign, that was known to be illegal- STOLEN EMAILS. To BOOST their chances of winning an election. Be it an endorsement or assistance, a political campaign must account for services provided with a monetary value. DIRT ON OPPONENT seems like a “something of value” to me. And campaign finance laws, though they are HORRIBLY insufficient, are there to protect OUR DEMOCRACY. Products of lessons learned, from the corruption of our PAST.

We must consider this ALL in context… we’re speaking about DONALD J. TRUMP. His former lawyer testified before Congress that he would do ANYTHING to win. He was running for the HIGHEST OFFICE in a land, GOVERNED BY the RULE OF LAW. To suggest he is ignorant of the law seems… a stretch. ESPECIALLY when weighed TOGETHER with ALL THE EVIDENCE.

Which leads me to a sticky situation. One year ago, knowing this would be necessary, I began my campaign for the OFFICE. Knowing who Donald J. Trump was, I knew the only way ANYONE would be allowed to call him out on ANYTHING that he has done, would be OFFICIALLY… within the CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED and PUBLICLY VIEWED political arena. AS AN ADVERSARY in RHETORICAL BATTLE.

AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

As an EQUAL, seeking the HONOR of serving THE PEOPLE.

And in THIS light… I frame my battle. NOT against Donald J. Trump. He is a PRODUCT OF THE PROBLEM. He is THE BEST EXAMPLE I CAN USE TO DEMONSTRATE WHY WE NEED 100% TAX PAYER FUNDED ELECTIONS, but he can just as easily be substituted with GWB, or Nixon, or Clinton (both). The CORRUPT influence of FUNDRAISING, creating laws favoring DONORS over VOTERS, enforcing laws based on WEALTH instead of guilt or innocence, brings us NOW… to this point.

We are ALL faced with a CHOICE.

I seek the POWER of the OFFICE, to ensure it REMAINS the OFFICE OF THE PEOPLE. Not to WEAKEN it, not to CHANGE it, but to CLARIFY and FULLY DEFINE it. Without deference to PARTY or POLITICAL IDEOLOGY, with DEDICATION TO UNION, and our SHARED, COMMON-GOOD. Because I believe in the WILL of the American People.

 

And that means we STAND UP FOR EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW!

EVERY CITIZEN.

Every time.

Just as the story goes, if you don’t stand up for the rights of others, someday you will stand ALONE. When you DEFEND the rights of others, you DEFEND those rights for YOURSELF! It hardly seems fair to allow someone who has NO RESPECT for the OFFICE HE HOLDS, to remain there and avoid accountability for his actions. Just consider the idea of MANDATORY MINIMUM SENTENCING for POSSESSION.

The problems we face CAN BE SOLVED when we STAND united, AS EQUALS. When the sign on the door says “Equal Justice Under Law” and we STILL don’t enforce it EQUALLY for all citizens, it is not what it appears to be. And that DOUBT in our CONSTITUTION makes us weak. Benefiting only ONE MAN. We, the PEOPLE, must CUT THE STRINGS on HIS PUPPET.

WE DECIDE WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE! We decide, because we are the balance upon which the system resides, we choose what we will see.

“… using CODED LANGUAGE about a conversation he had that day.” Hmmm….

Does anyone remember THIS?-

 

On July 27, 2016, during an interview on CBS while at the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION, Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort was asked for CLARIFICATION 1:59 into the interview: “So to be CLEAR, Mr. Trump has no FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIPS with any Russian Oligarchs.”

His response, after stuttering and stumbling, fighting to find the right words:

“That’s what he said…. That’s obviously our position.”

 

… I think you’d have to be HIGH to believe THAT.

 

STAND UP for EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW.

End The Electoral College.

… de minimis.

Why do you lock the car doors when it’s parked in YOUR driveway? Why do you lock the FRONT DOOR of your home? Safety and security can be seen as one-in-the-same-

You would not want an eight-year-old to have access to a brand new sports car… both for the sake of the car, AND the eight-year-old!

To be SAFE helps us to STAY SECURE.

The meaning of these values may have been watered down in the buzz-word, focus group, kid-tested, monetized world we live in. Lady Liberty sells me car insurance in 5 second spots, and Ben Franklin can apparently set me up with some sound retirement planning. SAFETY is JOB #1… because it sells a bunch of cars, but please wait. You are a valued customer, someone will be with you shortly.

CRYSTAL CLEAN, but still somehow FILTHY…

Like the impromptu questioning of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Waiting for an elevator, she was asked about her administration’s decision to cut funding for the Special Olympics, and stood in SILENCE… when questioned.

About HER actions.

… pleasantly!

When HER BOSS was then asked about the same, he TRIUMPHANTLY proclaimed… as any NOBLE KING MIGHT DO when he feels that his SUBJECTS are unhappy… “We’re taking care of it.” Huzzah…

god save the KING of the united states of america.

IT’S DIRTY… everyone can see it just the same! Does it BREAK LAWS… THAT question is NOT being fully addressed regarding MANY ASPECTS of our current elected government officials’ actions. But EACH ONE, every time they are questioned about cutting FUNDING for education, or redirecting FUNDING from military developments to build a wall, or stealing FUNDING from FEMA to imprison refugees, their legalese and dogged determination seems to be enough to let them SLIP… dodging any real accountability for CRIMES COMMITTED… documented.

Ours is a country of LAWS, written in plain terms, so ANYONE can understand them, and if they so choose, pledge allegiance to them. Whether you are a scholar of the Law or a carpenter framing a home, you know the Law! You’re SUBJECT TO IT everyday. And ignorance of the Law is no excuse! I’ve heard stories of judges explaining that to some of my friends. Many of those friends ALREADY KNEW that BEFORE they attempted to use the bogus excuse! And they paid the price. They were served with Justice. And most of them have been better people ever since. Because our Law is fair, rehabilitation is ALWAYS the goal. Encouragement and support is ALWAYS the surest way forward.

Our system of Law has become OPPRESSIVE of the PEOPLE because JUSTICE is now served based on WEALTH… NOT guilt or innocence.

Disproportionately effected by penalties and punishment, financially unable to secure counsel to ensure a fair outcome, and many times corralled into pleading guilty to an offense to simply avoid the appearance of guilt for another crime…

The public defenders here in KCK don’t usually go OUT OF THEIR WAY to get their clients’ case dismissed when they are facing charges of possession. In fact… there’s an old saying in the customer service biz- “Turn ’em and BURN ’em”, meaning get as many customers served as quickly as possible, put the hammer down, cliché cliché…

Justice, weighed against GOLD. The balance can never be fair. At any point in our lives, we can point to a time where we were not financially secure… hell, for me- DOWN RIGHT POOR. But that time did not dictate what I am today, nor who I will BECOME in the future. It may guide my decisions for the rest of my life, but that is just human nature… and sometimes I have to burn my hand on the stove TWICE before I learn!

If you BELIEVE in the Rule of Law, if you believe in Our Constitution… STAND UP. See through the rhetoric. See through the agendas. See through the LIES. We know our system of governance is a system that only works when men and women of HONOR put the GOOD OF THE NATION above ALL ELSE. And we know what issues DIVIDE US with ease.

Don’t let them do it! NOT this time around. Every time an elected official or a candidate for office ducks back into stoking FEAR, ANGER, and DIVISION by blaming “THEM”… question it!!

– HOW DO WE SOLVE THAT ISSUE?

– WHO STANDS TO BENEFIT from that issue NOT being RESOLVED?

– WHY IS THIS PERSON SAYING THIS?

– Is the elected official or candidate for office attempting to FUNDRAISE by appealing to WEALTHY DONORS when they spout the newest “Their side sucks!” chant?

– WHO would LIKE hearing this person SAY those things… and would that group/organization/institution DONATE to a political organization LARGE AMOUNTS OF CASH?

The phrase I’ve learned since I began my campaign, that describes this mess PERFECTLY is ‘de minimis’. When dealing with a Presidential Campaign and the VAST OCEAN OF CASH, accounting errors are made. Numbers can be crunched incorrectly or funds can be collected mistakenly… or SPENT mistakenly. NOT with ill-intent, but subject to punishment just the same.

Some amounts are considered to be ‘de minimis’, or lacking in significance. Amounts SO SUPERFLUOUS that investigating criminal activity is seen, in the eyes of the Law, as unnecessary, irrelevant.

Mistakes of $10,000… of $15,000.

“OOPS!”

“… don’t worry about it! That amount of money is MINISCULE.”

 

A handful of mistakes over the course of a fairly successful campaign, and that amount of money, seen as ‘de minimis’ to the Law, could total MORE THAN THE VALUE OF MY HOUSE. That amount of money could change the life of ANY American Citizen I’ve ever known!

Imagine if we elected a President who saw the salary of the Office as ADVANCEMENT, understanding the TRUE VALUE of the wealth that amount of money holds. (aside: I’m sure if you asked any of them, they’d say it wasn’t enough. BUT, I bet ALL of them would say, they’d do it all over again… free of charge.)

An appreciation for an amount as de minimis as $15,000 is something I cannot forget. Nor do I ever hope to.

To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I had a portrait of Ben Franklin in my pocket-  hashtag MAGA.
