Listed BELOW are the monthly statistics for my social media campaign on Twitter, as of March 2020. I launched my Twitter account at the end of February 2018.

Note the number of “New Followers” I gain each month. Also note when those numbers start to deviate from being statistically random.

Something changed late in the summer of 2019. No matter what, I cannot seem to get my follower count to stay above 150 followers. Every month I have a handful of “bots” who will follow me. I know they’re bots because it’s always a young woman with a bunch of numbers in her name, and they send me a direct message saying, “Hello” or “Hi there”, or “Can we connect”.

At the end of the month, the accounts are REMOVED from Twitter in their monthly security sweeps. All of the month’s progress is wiped out, leaving me hanging at just under 150 followers.

 

 

 

As soon as it became CLEAR that I should report potential interference in my campaign, I took immediate action. I contacted my Representative in Congress.

On September 20, 2019, I sent the following email to my Representative, Sharice Davids:

“I am concerned the President is blocking my comments on his Tweets in violation of the 2nd Circuit ruling in July 2019. I believe he is labeling my campaign hashtag as a phrase he doesn’t want to see.

I believe the term he uses is ‘shadow banning’.

 

Again, I don’t have proof of who is doing this. I only have my own internal data analysis, and it suggests a firm LIMIT to the size of audience I can reach.”

 

Unfortunately without any PROOF of my suspicions, there was nothing she could do. Once I had PROOF that a candidate for President of the United States was being CENSORED on Twitter, I contacted the Speaker of the House.

I felt confident that my claim would be heard. As she repeatedly said… whistleblowers are “her wheelhouse”. But I am no fool. I was hopeful political affiliation would not determine who’s case is worthy of consideration when it comes to investigating crimes committed by the President.

 

BUT… 

 

Should party affiliation matter in a moment like this? Is removing Donald Trump from Office this fall NOT the top political priority for the Speaker? Is Joe Biden the candidate who can do that?

Would she remain SILENT if I had physical evidence that Joe Biden’s campaign was the target of this censorship?

Is it now ACCEPTABLE in the United States of America for an incumbent to SILENCE their political opposition?

 

… where does THAT line of questioning lead.

 

 

What candidate does Donald Trump fear the most. We’ve seen what lengths he will go to, to dig up DIRT on opponents… and not even THAT, just to arouse the suspicion of, a possibility of, some kind of INVESTIGATION into

He was IMPEACHED for it… and he would do it again. He said so on live TV.

The candidate Donald Trump fears the most is the one with NO DIRT to be found, the candidate he has no LEVERAGE over. If there is no dirt, his only option is to label that candidate’s campaign messaging as OFFENSIVE.

‘That VILE, NASTY phrase… #EndTheElectoralCollege!’

 

 

It offends him. So it is “shadow banned”, unable to be seen by the PUBLIC. It’s MOVED from sight, hidden behind a virtual wall that says “Click HERE for more replies“… hidden away because he’s offended? Or is it because he has NO REPLY…

 

The President of the United States has NOTHING TO SAY in response to that phrase.

No defense. No denial. No discussion.

 

 

(ASIDE: If you want to hear a really interesting story… ask me about being BLOCKED on Facebook.)

fb
… tick tock tick tock…

 

Do you remember in the Spring of 2018, when it was reported that Donald Trump was privately discussing Constitutional Amendments with his team, and they were telling him that it was a bad idea…? I do.

 

 

That was the point in my campaign, where I knew without a doubt, that my ideas were in his circle of influence. If not him, then someone on his team. I realized that I had become an advocate. I had INFLUENCE on the decision making process of the President of the United States… and humbly, I have not forgotten it.

 

The best part is, every position I’ve staked out that aligns with my views, and demonstrates decisions I would make if I were in Office, they’re all POLAR OPPOSITE of everything he represents. But I do not stake these positions out simply to oppose Donald Trump… I’m just being ME.

These are the things I hold sacred… it’s all written right here.

… biased? Yes, it is an autobiography. And it is a Political Campaign, an inescapable fact. If anyone doubts my motives, I welcome your inquiries, and I would gladly answer them DIRECTLY.

 

 

 

 

I’ve sought to propose a SOLUTION to the problems highlighted by the current Administration… he is not the FIRST. His is only the most recent example of systemic issues that have existed since this nation was founded. Allowed ascent through an electoral system that declares VICTORIOUS a candidate, who LOST the vote of the people by 3 MILLION.

 

And Twenty years ago the vote was even closer.

And Nixon may have had justification to call for recounts in 1960 against JFK.

And on, and on, and on…

 

… is anyone else tired of chasing our own tail?

 

What IF our Presidential Primaries worked more like the NCAA Championship Tournaments… and they only lasted SEVEN MONTHS.

What IF EVERY STATE had an equal say in who should be our next President.

What IF ONE CITIZEN truly did equal ONE VOTE.

 

Which candidate does he truly fear facing this fall…

That should be for THE PEOPLE to decide.

 

 

 

 

I’ve shared this information with my elected representative and received NO RESPONSE. I’ve shared this information with the Speaker of the House… again, NO RESPONSE.

If a candidate believes their campaign is the target of foreign interference, they should call the FBI… what about domestic interference? In this specific instance… should I address this to the Attorney General of the United States? Would he ensure this case is expedited and brought to light BEFORE the election?

 

So… admittedly, I have a political stake in this. Should I surrender two years of campaign data to the investigative arm of my political opponent… in the middle of my campaign? My campaign has always been about the people. Everything I have done, I’ve done for OUR benefit.

I would want to know, before I made my decision this November, if the incumbent OR his campaign were actively SILENCING one of their opponents.

 

That is a fact that should not be silenced…

To be SILENT, is to be COMPLICIT.

Official Campaign Statement: “I Support the First Amendment.”

There are more things that UNITE us than divide! We agree on so many fundamental ideals, yet we bicker and fight over minutiae and arithmetic. No one wants to see unnecessary loss of life, especially when it is caused by inaction or ignorance… that’s why we pull to the side when we see an ambulance in our rear-view mirror.

We don’t stop and question the political leanings of the guy inside, we just GET OUT OF THE WAY! Because ONE DAY, it will be me who needs that ride… and I’ll be damned if it’s MY actions that cause someone else to leave before their time.

I would expect the SAME courtesy from someone else.

 

The SAME Constitution that protects the Liberty of supporters canvassing for Donald Trump’s reelection, protects the right of a High School senior to graduate.

Our Constitution ensures the SAME RIGHTS for the fool AND the philosopher, the aristocrat AND the ass… the con AND the converted.

Our Constitution allows us to ask questions and DEMAND answers. It establishes our ability to DEBATE without fear of reprisal from the Government… The Constitution protects our right to be wrong.

How can we find what is RIGHT if we SILENCE dissent? How can we ensure our conclusions are sound if no one is allowed to object?

 

If it is NOT for everyone… then it is NOT for me.

 

As I watch the news and listen to the candidates, I hear the SILENCE born of political expediency. Russia is FAKE NEWS, and the subject is now TABOO… “Just look at the polls!”

Who won in IOWA…? Vladimir Putin. Who will win in New Hampshire? Once again…

 

 

Where is the URGENCY? Where’s the OUTRAGE? Where’s the PLAN that will ensure this can NEVER happen again? The bells & whistles are distracting us from what has been continuously happening all along… and it’s being carried out to HIS benefit. By his PUPPET and his HENCHMEN, the Leadership of the United States Senate.

 

Is there NOTHING we hold sacred anymore? Our Constitutionally guaranteed Right to Free Speech is taken for granted. What if it were taken from us? Would that not instantly remind us of what it is we are fighting FOR?

We need look no further than Russia for an example, and their government’s opinion of FREE SPEECH…

 

 

“Don’t it always seem to go,

That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone…”

-Joni Mitchell

 

WAKE UP! If not NOW… then when? Is the AMERICAN FREE PRESS the enemy of the people or is it SILENCE? Is dissent STILL the highest act of PATRIOTISM, or shall we BANISH citizens for SPEAKING OUT against an abusive government? An act that, if it fell unto ME, it would be my DUTY to SAY SOMETHING… and I would expect the SAME from EVERY AMERICAN.

These are the VALUES we were raised with… don’t run with the WRONG CROWD, avoid GUILT by association, BEWARE of the company you keep. STAND UP and SPEAK OUT! Because our SILENCE allows it to continue.

This is Ink Girl.

From Wikipedia:
Dong Yaoqiong (Chinese: 董瑶琼; born 1989), who owned the Twitter account @Feefeefly, is a young woman who previously lived in Shanghai and was born and raised in Zhuzhou, Hunan province, People’s Republic of China. Before her disappearance, she had been working as a realty agent and had been a dissident in China for a while.

She went incommunicado from 4 July 2018 after uniformed men visited her apartment on the same day that she streamed live video from the square of HNA Group headquarters. The video showed her criticizing the Chinese communist party-style high-pressured governance, authoritarianism as well as brainwashing process imposed on Chinese people. She is also shown splashing ink on a poster of Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, whom she called a dictator on social media.

 

“Right now there are a group of people wearing uniforms outside my door. I’ll go out after I change my clothes. I did not commit a crime. The people and groups that hurt me are the ones who are guilty.”

— Feefeefly

 

She’s on my mind everyday when I’m on Twitter. I see the President’s Tweets as if they were his re-election posters. The ink I hurl STAINS his face with TRUTH. A stain that cannot be washed away or simply papered over. A stain that will last… long after he is gone.

TODAY we are truly writing our Nation’s HISTORY.

 

 

I was moved to speak today by this piece from www.forbes.com:

A $1 BILLION A YEAR INDUSTRY.

 

… and HERE in the United States, we have civil forfeiture, for-profit prison systems, legislatures beholden to DARK MONEY for re-election… is it THAT much of a stretch? As inconceivable as it might seem right NOW, can you SEE the path?

Can you see that destination from HERE?

 

STAND UP and SPEAK OUT!

When you defend the rights of OTHERS, you defend those rights for YOURSELF.

 

 

 

The United States must reclaim its place as a LEADER and DEFENDER of Human Rights throughout the world… that STARTS when we hold ourselves accountable.

LONG LIVE THE FIRST AMENDMENT!!

 

— Jack L. Charbonneau,

INDEPENDENT candidate for President of The United States of America.

It’s All Connected…

I wanted to speak about Wilson Montenegro and his cousin Jerrell Frazier. I graduated from Olathe North High School class of 1998. On September 14, 1995, Wilson and Jerrell were shot and killed in a drive by shooting while playing football with some friends on school grounds.

It was Homecoming weekend. I remember on Friday, the football game was the first time I got to dress out and play live with the marching band. It was the beginning of a new year at a new school for me with new friends. Then, later that weekend…

I never got to meet Wilson. We didn’t have the same classes. I saw him only in passing between class. But his life touched all of us. The Monday after, as we walled the halls… silence. No one spoke. No one knew what to say. And we all understood the danger was real.

The things we do make a difference in other people’s lives. It’s a ripple effect. As words leave our lips and reverberate through air, like rocks cast into still waters, what we do touches more than we can see. What we do each day, matters.

Have you ever taken a dandelion gone to seed and blown the seeds into the wind? Have you ever taken a dandelion gone to seed and blown the seeds off up wind of someone with seasonal allergies?

What we do matters and effects people around us.

Like an intricate placement of dominoes, a single motion creates havoc long after you influence the system. And whether done by accident or with intent, once started the result is almost certain.

I have decided to share with you memories of a young man I have never met. Motivated to do so, by a bunch of children from Florida who know the horrors of war. Those children who mourn the loss of friends and family, seek legislation through OPEN and HONEST debate, to ensure this doesn’t happen again, and GROWN MEN say “leave the governing to the adults.”

Adults, who on one hand say ALL LIVES MATTER, but then they don’t raise a finger to seek justice for the family of a child, shot and killed, by a man with a badge and a gun. Or they teach Pro-Life concepts to a teenaged girl carrying her abuser’s child.

Our country, seemingly, is NOT as it once was. Our country, STARVED of leadership, now finds it in the words of children not old enough to be elected to office. We currently have a leader who seeks to protect our country from, FAMILIES, who have humbly asked for assistance and protection. Women and children with nothing, asking for a chance at NOT DYING… for their children’s sake at the very least. Yet, our current elected officials cannot even do that without causing harm.

So we now see what springs from the seeds of dishonesty sown… More of the same.

As a father of two young boys, I write these words with nothing in my pockets, but asking for everyone to lend me your ear. These words may not seem to have much effect here, today, but they will certainly shake the cornerstones of buildings miles away, tomorrow.

Great wealth does NOT a good leader make, but a great leader is more precious than gold. Right now our Country knows what a great President looks like because we have seen what a cheap, morally bankrupt President looks like. Presenting LIES as TRUTH. Protecting GUNS more than CHILDREN. Celebrating the wealth of Our nation as his accomplishment, and unable to spend time nor treasure to save 5,000 lives in Puerto Rico.

“Heck of a job there,” Sir.

But from this dark corner of our Shared history, I want to offer hope. Its currency diminished, its appeal not quite “universal” anymore… but that “… and a prayer” are all I carry on-hand nowadays.

No matter our political affiliations. No matter the State we live in. We ALL bleed for one flag, and that flag stands as a symbol, and ONLY that. What it symbolizes as it flies, is more than what makes it fly. Just as it is with the scripture, it is the “Word” of god, and because it is by the hand of Man, it is NOT god, though it may be OF god.

Our flag symbolizes our commitment to Liberty and Justice, and our dedication to the protection thereof. Up to and including the destruction of that very symbol!

Yes… THAT is worthy of taking a knee, and showing HUMILITY for, our Constitution, OF the People.

Keep your head UP!!
