For The People

The tears were real.

At the tail end of my first campaign video, “The Hastert Rule”, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get out the last line! I dropped about a minute from it. I didn’t want to bore everyone with my crying.

At this point last year, everyone had enough tears on their own.

I ended my self-imposed media blackout three days after the shooting at MSDHS and watched “Coffee Joe and the Brew Crew”. And when the “light turned on” in my head, after hearing Senator Blumenthal speaking about The Hastert Rule… I was worried I wouldn’t be heard. I knew I must start THAT DAY, so people could get inside my head. To have some kind of physical, documented case to present to The People. That’s where it began. One year ago today.

Fear? Anger? Excitement? … the only way to describe the feeling of doing this is-

Every emotion. All at once.
Both sides of the coin.
Every side of the die.
All the time.

There is a suprising calmness within it. To realize you are the servant of time, and what is decided is what shall be…

It’s freeing, in a restricted sort of way.

I am excited and optimistic BECAUSE of what can be, and ever mindful of who I am doing this for. All the credit for anything good that I have done so far goes to the people who have lifted me up and given me support. Any victory I attain is not mine alone, because the guiding principle of this campaign is ensuring the POWER lies in the hands of the people.

May the passing of the year to come bring us closer to our goal.

… in Rememberance of Those No Longer With Us.

It wasn’t the first. It wasn’t the last. As much as we all wanted it to be true, Never Again was unattainable. It FELT like it could happen, and if you closed your eyes and believed it hard enough, it was true…

Until Santa Fe High School in Texas.

And the reaction to it would be the same as it was to Parkland, and the one before that- “Thoughts and prayers”, “Isn’t it a shame…”

Our elected Representatives shed tears and demanded action… demanded answers. THEIR leaders sought to SILENCE and SUPPRESS their concerns, cold and callous- “We should not jump to conclusions”, “We shouldn’t over-react while emotions are still raw”.

On this day, three hundred and sixty-five days ago… 350 mass shootings ago, we witnessed the death of a POLITICAL IDEOLOGY that has given rise to Institutional Discrimination, Government Sanctioned Murder, and protection for Sexual Predators.

On this day, one year ago, in a community in Florida, a Political Stronghold in Washington, DC, was murdered by a High School Student carrying a CELL PHONE. When reached for comment, the Speaker of the House of Representatives offered his “thoughts and prayers” for those effected by the tragedy.

The destruction of this one event was not fully understood at that moment. The deaths caused by this SINGULAR event would mount in the months that followed. Spreading from one chamber to the other, slowly becoming apparent to everyone WITHIN government, the “rot” caused by their death spread OUTSIDE government. Soon, the emblem of the 2nd Amendment, the NRA, would be dead as well.

… I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers to those effected.

And as we remember those effected by the tragic events that unfolded that day, we remember in sadness. Still engulfed by the LOSS, the scene still fresh in our mind’s eye. Do not mourn for those we have lost, for they realized what their mission in LIFE truly was as soon as thier time here had ended. In the course of a well lived life, of success and longevity, pain and loss are inevitable. To NOT experience it somehow makes the achievements less valuable. Without the pain, we do not fully appreciate what it is we were missing… and how much better things could be.

On the day of the shot heard ’round the world, pain and loss were reality. On the Beaches of Normandy, at the Battle of Gettysburg… the same as it was one year ago. It is not understood in the moment. It is not realized at the time.

But it is memorialized, and it is consecrated… to be remembered throughout all time.

Wars are fought to secure peace. Tens of thousands die in efforts to ensure prosperity. Individual sacrifices given freely, and fully, to Just Cause. Victory was assured that day one year ago, in a High School in Florida. Let us never forget what we have lost, and how greatly appreciative our Nation should ever be.

Rest in peace, Speaker Paul Ryan, and everyone who gave rise and support to the agendas he stood for.

“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?
