“The Hastert Rule”, Full Transcript of the YouTube Video

“The Hastert Rule: Deception and Division via our House of Representatives”

A YouTube Commentary, by Jack Charbonneau

US Presidential Candidate, 2020

 

The rules that govern the Congress of the United States fall into two categories. One, written and established order that is followed in the legislative process and enforced by an over-seeing body. And two, respect for tradition and customs within the governing body, established by leadership within the Legislature itself.

This second concept is not widely known by many, and once you know what it means, it becomes clear what is going on-

Our Legislative process has been Hijacked by a “serial rapist”

Why is a popular idea NOT acted upon by Congress? And, when Congress DOES act you can guarantee, whatever bill is passed, it will be in the political interest of the party in control at that time. That is the “end goal” of the system, right?

Fundraise, Politic, Grab-hand, back-slap, ‘wink-wink! say no more!’, and BOOM. Ribbon-cut, Photo op, signing ceremony, Fundraise, Politic, Grab-hand, back-slap…

The idea is, the “Majority of the Majority” MUST support the bill BEFORE it can get a vote in the full House. There is no benefit for the Speaker of the House to bring to the floor a bill that, if passed, would damage their own political party during the next election. The interest of the political party, and the over-arching ideology of that party, are superior to will of the Majority of Representatives in the House.

The idea is called “The Hastert Rule”

It was the doctrine of former Speaker Dennis Hastert, who served as Speaker from 1999 to 2007. Speaker Hastert is the highest ranking US lawmaker ever sent to prison. He attempted to pay off his victims. Before he became “Speaker Hastert”, he was “Coach Hastert”, and he admitted to sexually abusing boys whom he coached.

During a pivotal moment in Our Country, a heavy-handed abuser held the political opposition HOSTAGE to ensure the George W. Bush administration’s mass surveillance programs, war funding, and rendition sites all went through the House, and ALL of the credit went to George W. Bush and the Republican Party. If the Majority was not in favor, regardless of the overall support, a bill would not even be brought up for debate.

Birds of a Feather

Paul Ryan is a full-throated supporter of “The Hastert Rule”, and it is the method of choice for the current Speaker, when deciding what bills the House should consider. To be clear, America is NOT divided about the issues. The Majority is still loud and clear on issues like background checks, “Dreamers”, and personal Liberty.

We ALL need to understand that the ideals and ideology of a “serial child molester”, as Speaker Hastert’s judge put it, are holding Our Country hostage once again. A clear disregard for the actual will of the American People cannot be permitted.

We must consider the intent of the mastermind of such a strategy. Was this strategy created with the idea of “Making the voice of the American People Stronger” in mind? When a plan turns south, benefit of the doubt can be given if a person’s motives can be perceived as pure.

Can the intent of Dennis Hastert be perceived as “pure”?

Paul Ryan’s continuance of “The Hastert Rule” is now putting children everywhere at risk. A large majority of Americans support background checks for all gun sales, stopping gun sales to persons on the “no fly” list and the ‘Terrorist Watch List”, and preventing sales to the mentally unsound… which brings up Mental Health Care, but…

With ANOTHER school shooting taking 17 lives from us, we must state, LOUD AND CLEAR-

-Paul Ryan’s support for the legislative agenda of a “Serial Child Molester” is killing children.

-Paul Ryan and the Republican Party are claiming to be fighting for the American People, yet their opinion is overwhelmingly opposed by EVERYONE.

MURDER and PEDOPHILIA are the Legislative tools used by leaders in OUR House of Representatives. How many more “rules” exist in our Congress, like “The Hastert Rule”, that We are unaware of?

…now that you have this information, what are YOU going to do with it?

Campaign Update: Gaining Momentum.

I wanted to thank the people who have subbed my wordpress site and the people who follow me on Twitter @MrJLCharbonneau. In a world where the power of words and their usage has been compressed into a couple sentences, it gives me hope that THIS method of communication has reached the most people directly so far. I hoped the YouTube videos on the Hastert Rule and the Electoral College would have seen more traffic, but it’s not going away.

As I have engaged with people, I have found quite a few conservative supporters. As shocked as I was at first, it really is not so suprising. After all, I am from Kansas. I am a former Southern Baptist Christian. I own guns. I live in a socially conservative community. Even though Wyandotte county is one of two blue dots in this sea of red, I pass more church steeples than family planning centers on my way home.

As the political spectrum has polarized, portrayed as a widening gap tearing at our social cohesion, a funny thing happened. I first noticed it during the TARP debates in 2008/2009. As the Senate was debating a bank bailout of trillions of dollars, Senator Sam Brownback argued in opposition. Why should we bailout these institutions who gambled away all that money? Let the free market decide winners and losers.

Suddenly, I was APPAULD to find myself thinking “Hey, that Sam Brownback has some good ideas.”

I am a liberal. I describe myself politically as so liberal I make Keith Olbermann look like Rush Limabugh. Jokingly, of course! But, I realized in ’08 that as our views polarize, we find ourselves uniting again. We all walk a different political direction, sometimes wandering in the dark with fools and magicians leading us, but we come back to the same problems. Seeking answers, to problems we all face. Wasting all that time looking, when our answers were all the same, as well as the problems.

Common decency needs to be displayed in real life more. An appreciation of others’ points of view and a genuine desire to show you care… just a bit. Not sayin’ go hug a stranger. I’m not gonna do that. (People are weird… have you met some of them? YIKES!) But a positive outlook can go far. Until you realize your being trolled, then it’s gloves off.

So, right now I have 11 followers on Twitter and 6 or 7 here on WordPress. Hey, not a bad first couple months. And have raised… let me see… $0.00 with no Patreon patrons. Cool. I am not worried yet about this. It’s early. I don’t think I should worry until 2020. At that point, if no funding rolls in I will re-evaluate and see what options exist. I would like to say I could do this with no funds, but that’s how you get the exposure. Get the word out. If I could recruit 1,000 volunteers, some from every State, territory, and DC, then maybe… still, I doubt it would fly.

For Now, I will be satisfied yelling political obscenities at senators and representatives. Hoping to start a conflagration in the collective mind of Our country. Maybe there is just enough oxygen in the ether to whip up a fire big enough to turn our country’s leadership back to gold.

“…follow the Bouncing Ball…”

Its dizzying to watch. The morning news programs. They have opinion writers and former staff from the Ghosts-of-Presidents-Past, speaking about events unfolding in real time, in many cases the events unfolding were set in motion years earlier by that commentator’s sphere of influence, ‘what-I-woulda’ve’ and ‘if’n-it-were-me’ to the edge of confusion some mornings.

To the EDGE of confusion. And as it was designed. Consider this-

memo_redacted

Yes… to the Edge of confusion!! Not quite confusion, per se. Just… enough to make MOST of the people tune out. But, not so much as to incriminate themselves. Because, the PEOPLE are watching. SOME of them GET it. SOME of them have been paying attention JUST enough.

Muddy the waters. It is obvious by watching current Congressmen speak about CLASSIFIED INTEL, that there is something the public is NOT even SLIGHTLY aware of. To what that is, I can only speculate. But, being a data nerd/ open source researcher, I feel I have an understanding about some current events that covers a wider spectrum than most people.

And as I watch these people, talking heads and political legislators, dancing about, trying to avoid a phrase (not because of being ‘blue’) or stopping a reference mid sentence, then other legislators on that discussion panel, from FORMER ADMINISTRATIONS, laugh oddly loud… in such a way, that upon reflection… shows that there is an insider joke, and MOST people are not even aware the ‘setup’ exists!

In Congress, they inform us with redacted memos. IF they inform us, they inform us with partisan conclusions, drawn from the same set of CLASSIFIED facts. CONCLUSIONS drawn based on the idea some of these CLASSIFIED FACTS will not see the light of day for 100 years. As someone once said… “Alternative facts”.

So, now to report on this divisive, engulfed, partisan divide is Hill Reporter totally-not-dependent-on-viewer-retention-and-name-recognition. “Opposing views on Capitol Hill make people mad. Too bad! Smile…”. “Tonight. Your info is SOLD on Facebook. Should you KNOW? Follow me and give a thumbs up if you agree…”

As these old world titans stand crumbling and reinventing, they have attempted to ensure their survival as news institutions by selling their ‘souls’. Eliminating diversity in order to become financially sleek. Cutting the fat meant removing the free and open aspect of journalism. Competition produces the best product. FAIR and REGULATED open competition.

What’s my point…

Our legislative body’s leaders’ agenda is successful if a.) Republicans stay in power AND/OR b.) no Congressional bills can move forward. It is a WIN either way for people who want to see the government constricted. All of this is being covered by mega media titans, in some cases less than 10 companies deliver %100 of news and information to the People, attempting to ensure the funding still rolls in…

All of them FUNDED by the same companies who don’t pay taxes. Sorry, to be fair, most pay an amount of tax money. I pay in the neighborhood of %25, where as companies making 10 digits a year pay less than %5 due to income tax deductions, charities, Federal Tax relief to stimulate job growth, loss write-offs… If I had extra cash, I could possibly afford an accountant or a lobbyist…. sigh.

At the end of it all, they are framing a debate ABOUT the facts. Not framing the debate WITH the facts. If we allow them to tell us what they want to tell us, THIS will not go away. If we choose to move forward, UNITED, we must wash away the ‘original sin’. This entire debate structure is designed to divide. Anger is where we are. EVERY decision has led us to THIS SPOT. Each path has been followed. Each road gained experience and moved us closer. But trying the same tactics tried before will get us more of the same, for US and the FUTURE.

In 2016, we elected the guy who said “Let’s burn this place to the ground!” We all felt “Yes! Metaphorically speaking, hell yeah!!!” Well, some of us realized that he might just do it IRL. Now that the match has been struck, many who felt this WAS a good idea are having second thoughts.

There has to be a better way.

Disconjoined Morals and Ramblings (pt. 1)

Today I saw a man standing on the corner of Parallel and 64th. Long hair, leathery skin, wide brimmed hat. Unlit cig in one hand, both hands shaking. Not sure if he was singing along with music or just talking loudly, alone by the traffic light. 6 cars were stopped at that light for a couple minutes. I wondered what all the other people were thinking. After a few seconds, I realized ‘There, but for the grace of god, go I…’

George Carlin once said “… the poor are there just to scare the shit outta the Middle Class.” There’s a NEW villain in town. Not foreigners, not gov’t intrusion-

An 8.5″ X 11″ neon green/yellow piece of paper.

When a neighbor’s house suddenly becomes empty. Then the yard doesn’t get mowed. Then a few more weeks pass. One day in the front window, CLEARLY visible as you drive your KIDS TO SCHOOL everyday, a notice of foreclosure on a neon green/yellow piece of paper. I remember them pop up everywhere in 2010-2012. How many families were shattered by that? As they creep today, I wonder who’s next.

The situation between Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump is a GREAT metaphor for how my generation has been treated by people of Mr. Trump’s generation… Screwed us over, roughed us up a little, threw some pity money at us, then walked away. Respect your elders. Elders who act RESPECTFUL shall earn mine.

Propaganda has an interesting effect on people. It makes some FORGET the facts, and others (the one’s who remember the facts) get MAD at the people who FORGOT the facts. GOOD people do GOOD things even when no one is looking.

As the climate changes, and it doesn’t go the way scientific forecasts have predicted, what will YOU do? What should Our government be doing? Why aren’t we doing more…

We have the liberty to choose the course. It is not set in stone. When we look at all the different approaches to shaping our government and making ourselves a better society, we can make the choice. All of the texts speak of the battle between good and evil, light vs. darkness, the weak vs. the powerful. The moral is always the same- good will prevail in the end. Light conquers darkness. And at some point, we must ask ourselves “Good… or evil?” Where do YOU stand?

Where DO you stand? We should ask that more often. Come together in the light. Speak freely. That’s the ONLY way this works. KNOWLEDGE will keep us ALL free.

What is a Safe Conspiracy Theory?

What’s your favorite? Does it involve black ops or ‘beings’? Bet it might involve murder. Mine does. And it always makes my ears “perk up” at odd moments during news cycles or conversations. Plucked out of a tree of forbidden fruit… And to SHARE that fruit with some Joe on the street, it’s like sinking the three at the buzzer sayin’ “You know what I’m talkin’ about!”

And sometimes when you speak up a little, you find more people asking the same things, and you ask it a different way. “Seriously… DO you know what I am talking about?” And you realize, no… they did not know, they were thinking about lizard people… really, wa.. what… LIZARD… “Sir, let us have a conversation…” And THAT is the point. Knowledge cannot be attained without asking some STUPID questions. Explaining some basic things.

Open dialogue of information clarifies arguments. Shows bad actors in full view. Brings to attention points of view the public at-large SHOULD know, but otherwise might not know due to being portrayed in an ‘evil’ light.

Every Conspiracy Theory I have looked into deeper than a blog post or headline has born some truth I had not previously known. I have also found some… um, ideas? Not so much FACTS as they would be, not so truthful…. but entertaining as all hell! I never miss the opportunity to discuss lizard people taking over _____. Leaders, politicians, assassins, clergy… they ALL start or revolve around a simple, usually exaggerated or misconstrued, version of a truth.

People want the truth. They have been lead to believe they are getting the truth. When they are presented clear evidence they have not been given the full truth, they believe they can handle the truth… they are entitled to it, it’s my right! The Clandestine EVA of Apollo 12 is the best example. Full article explains it… in all the detail I never wanted, but have now read, fully…The Most Plausible Apollo Moon Landing Conspiracy Ever Devised.

Oversimplified conclusion: Apollo 12 was supposed to land at a pinpoint spot on the moon…on TV, LIVE, to MANY interested parties. Due to dust kicked up during landing, and limited window seating on the LEM, the astronauts could not confirm their landing coordinates without preforming an EVA. They had to preform, live, on television to a global audience, an unscheduled SEVA.

TRANSLATION: The Astronauts, flying under the flag of the United States of America, couldn’t see where they parked, and now, were gonna have to stick their head out the window to find out where they are… hold on one minute…

This Stand-up Extravehicular Activity (SEVA) happened in secrecy as the world watched. Under radio silence, one of the astronauts opened the hatch and looked out to find the lunar lander NASA sent previously, sitting a few hundred yards away. Being able to confirm where on the lunar surface they landed, the mission could proceed. The hatch was closed, the radio silence ended, and history was made.

NASA choose to not display publicly a misstep and knowledge of an event, insignificant as it may be, for a preconceived hidden agenda. Insignificant, if you believe that opening the hatch of a spacecraft on the surface of a foreign body hundreds of thousands of miles away from breathable air is SOP and cakewalk stuff…

ASK questions, DEMAND answers. KNOWLEDGE will keep us ALL FREE. More voices will lead to a better conclusion and help us dodge the missteps of our ancestors. The bad actor will shine brightest in the light of FULL KNOWLEDGE. And those without the light will gain more without even knowing it.

I think I lost my point here… hmmm. I’m going to bed.

An Independent President

As I see it, there is only one solution- we MUST elect a President who has NO intrest in a political career, who has no political ‘history’ (THE reason Hillary lost, IMHO), and is a ‘working stiff’ like myself. The “Average Joe”. AKA someone who represents the MAJORITY of Americans.

Mr. Jack Charbonneau

 

 

Under normal circumstances, I would NOT run for President. I would say there are MANY more qualified persons we need to be at the helm. But we have reached a ‘tipping point’ in our country. What we have created, this intercontinental economic powerhouse, born and bread here in the USA, is now attempting to, and successfully I might add, change the rules… change the legislative structure ITSELF… to its own benefit.

If the law makers are sympathetic to your company, even better have worked for or will be working for your company, then laws can be passed or undone in your interest. Our government is similar to refs in an NFL game. What would happen if the players were allowed to be the refs? At some point the game would come to a halt due to the inflated egos on the field! Instead of a competition of skill, it would become a “battle royale”.

Though the idea of a death match on the Senate floor MIGHT sound appealing…

I hope over the course of 3 years I will be able to lay out a full description of myself, articulating my positions on as much as I can think of, as well as any questions thrown this way, to show exactly why I can be President. Because we all KNOW the President is only as powerful as the Congress allows. If they are all in agreement, progress CAN be made. It has happened before. It MIGHT happen again!… maybe… I’m optimistic. Not 100%, but at least 65% confident…

A President with an UNDENIABLE MANDATE from the VOTERS, THE PEOPLE, from whom this government gets its marching orders. By sending a representative from the PEOPLE, NOT the special interests, NOT the legislative elites, NOT the wall street leaders.

A person who, when someone looks at that leader and asks “Is he looking out for my interests?” You can absolutely say “Yes”. Because, as I see it, the MAJORITY looks, acts, and THINKS exactly like I do. We bust our ass, follow the rules, try to get ahead, set a good example for our kids, then see the banking industry gamble all OUR money away on risky loans and NOT GET PUNISHED. Or see Donald Trump break LAWS and… nothing. Or watch an oil company kill 11 workers due to negligence and no one goes to jail!

NOTHING?? If I go to the casino tonight, put it all on red and come home broke, my family’s financial future is bleak. If I were to attempt to write off those losses, my ass would be in jail. Same for anyone else. Accountability used to be universal.

Let’s make America ACCOUNTABLE again. Your actions speak volumes. EVERYONE is accountable for their actions, GOOD and BAD. Let’s do good, for everyone, together.

Keep your head UP!!
