DTMPPI: The Republican Party left me; Time for me to fly!

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell
When Ronald Reagan left the Democrat Party to become a Republican, he explained:
“I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me!”
20+ years ago, this writer left the Democratic Party for the Republican Party. And 20+ years later, this writer finds himself wanting to say:
“I didn’t leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me!”
Before, we go farther; this writer would simply state that Boehner and the GOP Establishment joining the Democrats in dissing the TEA Party was merely the “last straw”.

Now before you Democrats settle in to enjoy the bloodletting to come in this article, know that I left the Democratic Party because of the innate corruption of the Democratic party. Elected Democrats who were supposed to stand for justice and fight for the best interests of Americans, in fact merely pretended to do so. In my particular case, this writer alleges that former US Attorney David Lee Lillehaug, a deceased Senator, and the deceased Senators then Chief of Staff, Jeff Blodgett, abandoned their oaths of office and/or duty to WE THE PEOPLE by joining a criminal conspiracy and the subsequent conspiracy to obstruct justice. You can read more about this writer’s allegations here:
And because this writer has experienced the duplicity of both major political parties, this quote seems more appropriate:

“The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (political dissident in former USSR)
This writer changed parties 20+ years ago with the intent of making sure the injustice he and others targeted by the criminal conspiracy could not be inflicted by anyone else in the future. For the past 12 years, this writer has intensely pursued passage and adoption of these Judicial TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform) resolutions into the Republican Platform:
The reader, or at least those readers who are lawyers, will recognize that these Judicial TAR Resolutions evidence.....

POLITICALPONDERINGS: UNIFIED THEORY OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS

Most Americans feel something has changed, and not for the better, in America. But ask them what exactly has changed and how the change occurred, and most can only give a general impression of a loss of liberty and expansion of government power and control.

It is this writer’s belief that his Unified Theory of American Government and Politics will help his fellow American understand what is changing, how it is being changed and how they can resist change they oppose. Now this writer has collected enough information to write a book, but in deference to constructive and less constructive feedback about the length of some of his articles, this article will be a summary of this theory. (And I will write the book in the future). The Importance of getting this information into the minds of the American masses outweight any personal economic considerations.

This writer politely suggests the reader will get more out of this article if they read these 2 previous articles first:
To understand foundation of American Government, it is necessary to how our current American Government came to be. We will look at aspects of the government that preceded our Republic and examine and compare those same aspects as they occurred in the early Republic. We will compare these aspects of Governance under:
  1. Divine Right of Kings – Pre-American Revolution
  2. Consent of the Governed – Early America
  3. Progressivism – Current Day America
For our purposes, we are going to go back to the fall of the Roman Empire 476 AD.
In Western Europe, following the fall of Rome an economic system know as Feudalism and a Governance Doctrine Known as the Divine Right of Kings evolved into being.

DIVINE RIGHT OF KINGS

The Governance Doctrine of Divine Right of Kings stated essentially:
The King is a God or the representative of God here on earth, and, therefore no earthly being can question his decisions.

NO RIGHTS

All property belonged to the King. People upon the Kings property were subjects as opposed to citizens. Subjects do not have rights; they obtain permissions and/or privileges from the King or the Kings representative.
NO PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS

None besides the King owned property; they obtained the King’s permission to be upon it and/or were granted the privilege of managing a particular piece of property for the King in exchange for loyalty, payments and soldiers for the King’s Army. In short, almost the entire wealth of the country belonged to the King.
SUBJECTS

The vast majority of people were peasants. Under the economic system of Manorial Feudalism peasants were essentially tied to a parcel of land. In effect, they were the property of the King and whomsoever the King appointed to manage that land.

CLASS SYSTEM

Various Class systems existed. The sharpest division was the King and his subjects. But to control all of his lands and subjects, the King had to delegate authority to others to administer sections of his Kingdoms. From this arose an aristocracy; initially just the trusted Administrators of the King’s Property and/or governmental affairs.

Though they did not think of it like this at the time, Aristocrats essentially traded the liberty of the masses for their own personal gain. Even if the King was wrong, they most usually went along to get along to keep their privileges and permissions. Little or no thought was given to the quality of life of the lower classes. And any conflicts of conscience between the King and the peasants were quickly decided in the favor of the King. Perhaps the key thought to take from this paragraph is that the King cannot maintain control without the support of the lower hierarchy. The King and the aristocracy were mutually dependent on each other to maintain their power and privilege and enforce their will on the masses.

As the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings matured, another class of persons emerged called “Freedmen” or “Freemen” These often were merchants or tradesmen with enough wealth to be able to support and free themselves.

SELF DETERMINATION

There was little or no Self-Determination. An individual’s life was most predicted by the class or status they were born into. Life was so harsh and existence so close to the margins, that most could not afford the consequences of challenging the social order. Your profession was most likely to be that of your father. If you were born the son of a blacksmith, more than likely you would grow up to be a blacksmith. If you were born the daughter of a blacksmith, you father would likely arrange a marriage with for you with someone of similar class and status. There were exceptions, to be sure, but the upward mobility experienced in the first 225 years of the American Republic did not exist under Feudalism and the Divine Right of Kings.

Without Self-Determination, the day to day, month to month and year to year elements of living became settled tradition. And tradition and superstition became the reasons and restraints to those that dare dream of their life being something more.

ESTABLISHMENT OF TRUTH

Truth was established by the King and the Church. The truth the King and the Church established could not be challenged. From your history you remember persons being excommunicated, punished, burned at the stake, or otherwise being killed for challenging Church Doctrine. People were killed for....

DTMPOLITICALPONDERINGS: Married? The Judicial Assault on your Unalienable, Natural Law Rights

Though this article focuses on the departures from the Rule of Law in the Divorce case of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki vs. David Rucki, this writer takes a broader perspective. That broader being one addressing the importance of enforcing adherence to the the Rule of Law and Due Process; both of which are not only statutory requirements but Constitutional and Natural Law Rights of every person. (Before we go farther, this writer asserts that he would write the same article if the roles of the parties were reversed.) This article is a follow up to the latest hearing relating to this matter from January 10, 2014 and a call to action for the upcoming January 27, 2014 hearing for Lawyer Michelle MacDonald.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Martin Luther King Jr.,

[The next round in this battle against injustice occurs, Monday, January 27, 2014 at 9 AM Dakota County District Court, 1560 Highway 55, Hastings, MN. State of Minnesota v. Michelle MacDonald Shimota, Court file no. 19HA-CR-13-2934]

Let us begin with an intellectual and emotional appetizer intended to make you non-lawyer types hungry for the rest of the story.
Imagine finding yourself in this scenario, you and your spouse have been married nearly 20 years. You have built a successful business and have five children. To settle the Divorce, you agree to take the family home of 14 years and have custody of your 5 children while letting your spouse have parenting time, the business, and other properties.

Somewhere along the line your spouse sits you and the 5 children down at the table with a gun and says either “you are going to kill everyone” or “you are only going to kill yourself”.
More than a year after the divorce is settled, you find out about a hearing that you were not party to. With no evidentiary hearing or finding of fact, Sheriffs inform you must be out of the house and cannot tell the children why. You drop the children off at school and go home and pack only the one bag that the Sheriff’s deputy will let you pack. Everything else is lost to you. The children are to be taken care of by an undisclosed third party. And you leave your home of 14 years.
A year later, during a hearing to restore the divorce agreement and regain custody of the children, your lawyer is arrested during the hearing for reasons yet unknown and you are told to leave, as obviously the hearing will not continue. You take the files and other property left in the court room so they do not become “lost”. You later learn that after you left, the Judge resumed the hearing with your lawyer in handcuffs, without glasses, shoes, files or a client….

Later you find that the children are back with your spouse, but two of them have run away and not been seen in months.
That should be enough to get your attention and peak your interest.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
With that literary appetizer consumed, this writer hopes that the reader will find this writer’s perspective unique and thought provoking enough to be moved to action.

This writer sat in the Federal Court room in St. Paul, MN on January 10, 2014 and heard Judge Susan Richard Nelson ask Lawyer Michelle McDonald to produce Case Law Citations from the Federal 8th Circuit Court. As this writer listened, the following thought began to take root in this writers mind:
  • Can anyone wearing black robes arbitrarily deprive any US citizen of their Unalienable Natural Law Rights?
And with that thought, this writer set about answering this question using this thought process from one of his favorite recurring tweets:
  • You know those neat tricks & observations they use to catch the bad guys in major media and Hollywood shows? You need to start using them on your government.
@DMashak on Twitter (abbreviations & truncations removed)
And so we begin to use those neat tricks and observations to try to make sense of what has transpired and how Federal Judge Susan Richard Nelson should rule. In the case of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, the facts of interest to this writer are....

DTMPPONDERINGS: The FBI, Operation COINTELPRO & Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Part 1 of 3 - Intro & Sections 1&2)

On this Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, this writer has chosen to provide you with a copy of the Senate Committee Report regarding the campaign to demonize, marginalize and discredit Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. Upon reading the content of this report, your esteem for the man should be exponentially increased upon understanding that the weight of the US Government, FBI, Law Enforcement and National Security Agencies were brought to bear upon him and against the Civil Rights Movement.

This writer further deems it necessary and appropriate public service to re-post this report as there seems to be a concerted effort by the government to take down web sites containing this reveal, enlightening, embarrassing and provocative information. (Several websites this writer has previously linked to no longer exist) This writer hopes that the many copies he posts on the Internet will allow Americans for at least the next 100 years to have access to this document which irrefutably demonstrates the true nature of our government and its attitude towards rank and file Americans in general, and the voices of political dissent in particular.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free -
Johanne Wolfgang Von Goethe
This document goes a long way to erasing the deliberately false perception of reality rank and file America has of its government, Judicial System and Law Enforcement. A false perception of reality painted by our major media and Hollywood, at the direction the one and only one ruling class pretending to be two major political parties. The reader is asked to bookmark this page and make a special effort to commit an overview of the contents of this article to memory? Why? Because major media and Hollywood have an almost infinite amount of hours painting your false perception of reality, and this writer may only have this one shot make you conscious of a truer perspective of reality.

While major media and Hollywood paint a romanticized, benevolent picture of the FBI and Federal Law Enforcement, this report documents Law Enforcement and National Security organizations allowed to go rogue for the sole purpose of undermining the effectiveness of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in advancing the cause of civil rights.

However, the reader should realize that this activities extend to all voices of political dissent. At various times, Labor Unions, Political Parties, Political Groups (Communists), Tax Protesters and other voices of political dissent have been the targets of FBI, MLK-like COINTELPRO Operations. Here is another quote by FBI Director:
Purpose of counter-intelligence action is to disrupt [Black Panther Party] and it is immaterial whether facts exist to substantiate the charge. If facts are present it aids in the success of the proposal but the Bureau feels … that disruption can be accomplished without facts to back it up.
J Edgar Hoover, FBI Director 193?-1972 Memo (16 Sept. 1970)
The governments attitude towards rank and file Americans is perhaps best summed up by FBI Director Hoover, head of the FBI and its predecessor organization from 1924 until his death in 1972.
“Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”
FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, (January 1, 1895 – May 2, 1972) was the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States. Appointed director of the Bureau of Investigation—predecessor to the FBI—in 1924, he was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972) The Elks Magazine, August 1956 http://goo.gl/KdzcyA
To this writers mind, it appears that this investigation was done and this committee report created only under intense political pressure. This writer speculates that the powers that be finally gave in and published the report knowing they controlled the major media and the report would likely languish unread (very many) in some file cabinet in an obscure back room of the Senate. No one concieved of the present day miracle of the internet which would make dissemination of such data cheap and easy for rank and file Americans in general, and the voices of politcal dissent in particular.

And as you read, please contemplate this: Who controls the FBI?  Our Government?  Someone outside the Government? The Political Party in control of the government at the time? Which political party was in control at the relevant time?  What is the true nature of our government? What is the true Nature of the FBI?  Who decides what political dissent should be oppressed? Can a "Too big to fail bank" give a legal bribe known as a campaign contribution (Shakespeare: A Rose by any other name would still smell as sweet) to suppress witnesses against it? What does political dissent mean? If someone has evidence of a crime committed by a "Too big to fail bank", can they ask the FBI to COINTELPRO the witness? Which side of the abortion debate should be subject to an FBI COINTELPRO Operation? Which side of the gay marriage debate should the FBI oppress? Should the FBI do COINTELPRO Ops on folks who complain about high taxes or Obamacare?  Has this writer made his point?

While the document is long, and sometimes dry and boring, this writer asks you to read at least the first two underlined paragraphs.

Without further adieu, in honor of Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. this writer now re-posts:

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., CASE STUDY

I. INTRODUCTION

From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to "neutralize" him as an effective civil rights leader. In the words of the man in charge of the FBI's "war" against Dr. King:
No holds were barred. We have used [similar] techniques against Soviet agents. [The same methods were] brought home against any organization against which we were targeted. We did not differentiate. This is a rough, tough business. 1
 The FBI collected information about Dr. King's plans and activities through an extensive surveillance program, employing nearly every intelligence-gathering technique at the Bureau's disposal. Wiretaps, which were initially approved by...

POLITICALPONDERINGS: Judicial Corruption vs 1 Minnesota Attorney with ethics, selflessness & a spine

Minnesota Lawyer Michelle MacDonald
Most of you who know this writer personally, follow him on Twitter @DMashak or are regular readers are aware that this writer does not have a very high opinion of Minnesota Lawyers and in fact has been involved since 2005 with hundreds of other Minnesotans who have been denied a hearing to give evidence and testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary before the Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees.

Perhaps this frequent tweet of this writer best summarizes his opinion of the Minnesota Courts:
Minnesota Judges are to justice and the Rule of Law as Hitler is to Peace and religious freedom.
As evidence of the systemic and truly evil nature of the Minnesota Courts, this writer has written about his experiences as merely a Plaintiff in the Courts. (In this writer case, he continues to live with a 20+ year old, government sanctioned death threat and efforts to destroy his life for this writer's attempts to expose the wrongful repossession of vehicles from 150-200 innocent Minnesota families by a group of Banksters. Most recently this writer has been posting this video [http://goo.gl/FQJ5CE] of the tragic injustice inflicted on Bonnie Roy by Judge David L. Knutson on his twitter account.

But, of course, the systemically corrupt courts and legal system of Minnesota merely reply that this writer and any one else who has lost a lawsuit because it was rigged is just a disgruntled litigant. And, of course, us dopy rank and file citizens who are not lawyers are also painted as being too stupid to know how the law works. To wit, this writer asks the reader, "How many times do each of you need to hear about various outrageous behaviors of the Judiciary before you realize the Courts and our Legal System are systemically corrupt? How many lives are you going to let them destroy because they have better propaganda and you are too busy and/or don't want to be bothered?
First they came for the Jews, but I did nothing because I'm not a Jew. Then they came for the socialists, but I did nothing because I'm not a socialist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I did nothing because I'm not a Catholic. Finally, they came for me, but by then there was no one left to help me. – Pastor Father Niemoller (1946)
Never forget that this writer and anyone else who stands up to and/or attempts to expose the evil corrupt nature of our courts is severely retaliated against, black listed and punished for attempting to expose the truth. This writer draws upon his experiences of retaliation and the experiences of others in giving Kudos to Minnesota Lawyer Michelle MacDonald.


Over the Christmas Season, this writer received communications that should cause every American to question the integrity and nature of our entire Legal and Judicial System. Minnesota Lawyer Michelle MacDonald first sent this information to the local Fox News Network. When Fox dropped the coverage of this situation, Attorney Michelle MacDonald wrote to this writer. To avoid any accusations that this writer has mis-stated the allegations, this writer is going to simply cut and paste from one of the emails Lawyer Michelle MacDonald has sent to this writer:

As an attorney in good standing since September 11, 1987, I am writing to notify you of ongoing actions and pervasive violations of the civil and constitutional rights, Minnesota Law, the Judicial Codes, and......

DTMPOLITICALPONDERINGS: 2014 New Year’s Resolution for all True Patriots

For about 5 years now, various Americans from across the political spectrum have talked about taking back their country and restoring strict adherence to our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Patriots; There has been a lot of talk, not much action and even less success. In truth, there has been an even further erosion of our liberties as our government continues to expand its power and because less transparent and accountable to WE THE PEOPLE.

With that perspective, it seems essential that WE THE PEOPLE commit to a 2014 New Years Resolution focused on turning back this erosion of our individual liberties and the expansion of our government’s power. And, in making these resolutions, it would be prudent to admit that our actions and strategies over the past few years have been ineffective. Therefore, in making these 2014, we should assess which past actions and strategies have been ineffective and replace them with new strategies.

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

At the same time, we should incorporate into our 2014 New Year’s Resolutions, changing paradigms which should be harnessed to effect the desired change.

With that preface, let us launch into developing Resolutions (Objectives) aimed at securing our mutual goals of retaking our Country and restoring our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Before going further, this writer advises the reader of his endorsement of Natural Law and his preference to inform his reader in accordance with the principles of Natural Law. Amongst those principles, is the following:

Truth to be established by the individual using their own observations and reasoning.

And further, this writer advises the reader to exercise Critical Thinking (http://bit.ly/ubI6ve) in determining the truthfulness of anything you read or hear. Do not passively accept nor believe anything anyone tells you, including this writer... unless and until you verify it yourself with sources you trust and could actively defend your perspective to anyone who might debate you to the contrary of your perspective. This advice seems particularly relevant in light of the confirmed lies used by our government to pass Obamacare.

What would Sigmund Freud say about males who watch sports on TV& play video games instead of standing up to corrupt government officials? – Don Mashak

And, this writer posits that each person who would say they love their children and/or would call themselves true patriot would commit to this first 2014 New Year's resolution:

RESOLUTION ONE



I will be actively involved in the political process this year.


This means not just voting, but attending political meetings, advocating positions on issues, rallying like-minded fellow citizens to participate, supporting grassroots candidates and confronting the corrupt status quo.

Next, this writer believes WE THE PEOPLE to confront the corrupt status quo. This writer believes that the best way to do this is to create unity amongst WE THE PEOPLE.

This writer asserts that the two alleged major parties have betrayed their rank and file membership. The two major parties have used issues as a means to divide and conquer WE THE PEOPLE. In dividing WE THE PEOPLE they also distract us their corruption and prevent us from uniting against the corrupt, incumbent status quo of the two major parties.

The confirmation of the lies told to get passage of Obamacare and the recently exposed violations of our privacy by the NSA have created a paradigm shift we should use to our advantage. That Paradigm shift being distrust of government by both the rank and file membership of the alleged left and the alleged right, whereas before a great portion of rank and file Americans regarded government as benevolent and trustworthy. This writer suggests that WE THE PEOPLE should use this opportunity to unite against our corrupt government.

With this premise, this writer would propose the following resolution for each who says they love their children and/or call themselves true patriots:

RESOLUTION TWO

I will actively work to....

DTMPOLITICAL: WHILE VISIONS OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY DANCED IN THEIR HEADS (3 of 3)

This is part 3 of a 3 part series involving recent government actions which appear to represent a move by our government towards more transparency and accountability of our government. In part one we discussed the intent of our Founders for government be transparent and accountable in anticipation of the nature of mankind.

In part 1 we also discussed the decision by Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau to outsource major internal investigations to the Minnesota BCA in an attempt to restore public trust in the MPD. You can read part 1 by clicking here http://t.co/eM1OyheqVF.

In Part 2 we discussed the recent ruling by Federal Judge Richard Leon that NSA phone snooping was unconstittutional. You can read Part 2 by clicking here http://goo.gl/AJUBJx

In Part 3 this writer will share his thoughts on:

MINNESOTA JUDGES FACE NEW FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS

For your convenience, here again is a link to the Major Media's version of what transpired:

Minnesota Judges face new financial disclosure requirements http://strib.mn/1bSm0n7

Of these 3 recent government actions, this writer is least confident of the sincerity of intent by the Minnesota Legislature and Minnesota State Judges implied here.

A summary of the major media's reporting on this matter would have you believe that judges don't get much in the way income outside of their judge salaries. The only real exception is Supreme Court Justice Alan Page, but Mr. Page was formerly a Vikings Football player who the story seems to indicate shouldn't penalized for having a prior life. After Mr. Page's nearly $50,000.00 (fifty thousand dollars), comes Judge David Stas at $14,000.00 and Judge G. Barry Anderson $3250.00. And several others received less than than that. A Minnesota Supreme Court justice’s annual salary is $151,820; a Court of Appeals judge earns $143,054.

Buried 8 well-spun paragraphs down in the article is some news that is more real. A group called the Center for Public Integrity based out of Washington DC, gave Minnesota and 43 others states failing grades. The Center for Public Integrity appears to have been founded in 1989.

THE REST OF THE STORY (AND THE TRUTH)

This article is the first time that this writer has ever heard of the Center for Public Integrity. As this writer's regular readers already know, for 20+ years this writer has tried unsuccessfully to obtain redress for witness tampering that escalated to an unrescinded, government sanctioned death threat. This writer alleges that former Minnesota US Attorney David Lillehaug, a now deceased Senator and the Senator's now former Chief of Staff Jeff Blodgett killed the investigation and covered it up. Other Federal and State officials this writer contacted at the time basically said, "Sorry to hear that" or "that's to bad". There was no rush to right this wrong. Corruption was well entrenched in Minnesota already back then. The internet did not exist 20 years ago. And there was no cost or time effective way to find others similarly aggrieved.

With the advent of the proliferation of the internet in the early 2000's, this writer was able to find other persons who had suffered injustices at the hands of the Minnesota Judiciary. From 2005 until the present, a loose coalition of hundreds of Minnesotans asked the Minnesota State House and Senate Judiciary Committees for a hearing to give evidence and testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary. For the first few years, the Republicans kept saying that the Democrats were the majority and the majority selects the Committee Chairs. And the Committee Chairs have absolute control over the Committee Agenda. But when the Republicans got control of both the House and Senate in 2010, the Republican Chairs of both the House and Senate Committees also denied the hearing.
9 years and 8 Legislative Sessions and no hearings. Does this sound like the Democrat Process as...

In part 1 we also discussed the decision by Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau to outsource major internal investigations to the Minnesota BCA in an attempt to restore public trust in the MPD. You can read part 1 by clicking here http://t.co/eM1OyheqVF.
In Part 2 this writer will share his thoughts on:
ANALYSIS: JUDGE RICHARD LEON FINDS NSA PHONE SNOOPING LIKELY UNCONSTITUTIONAL
For your convenience, here again is a link to the Major Media's version of what transpired:

Judge: NSA phone snooping likely unconstitutional http://cnet.co/1heJfJd

In this writer's opinion, the Major Media just regurgitated a partial summary of the facts that make up this story. In a lame and uninspired manner, Major Media would have you believe that this is a simple story of a single Federal Judge (Richard Leon) ruling that certain activities of the NSA are unconstitutional. But, in so doing, they have left out so many relevant facts and hopelessly understated the significance of Judge Richard Leon's ruling, that to this writer's way of thinking, they have been duplicitous.

This writer will lay out his unique and more in depth perspective in 2 parts; 1) What should be, and; 2) What is.

But before this writer can do that, this writer will have bring most of you up to speed on significant facts and history that your government has purposely had your public schools ignore and/or gloss over.
In summary of previous articles by this writer, our American Revolution was in reality a revolt against the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings. Pursuant to the Divine Right of Kings, the King is a God or an emissary of God here on earth. Therefore, no earthly being can question the decisions of the King. Under the Divine Right of Kings, there were no rights; there were only permissions and privileges that could be revoked by the King or his representatives at any time for any reason.

During the Enlightenment (circa 1650AD-1800AD) their was a scientific, intellectual and culture revolution of thought. Average persons came to question the authority of the King and the Church. Using their own observations and reasoning, individuals began determining truth for themselves. During this time, Men of Letters such as John Locke, developed a body of thought that came to be known as Natural Law. Amongst other things, Natural Law prescribed that all men had certain unalienable Natural Law Rights. (In fact, Natural Law was so well known and understood at the time that the Founder's debated whether the Bill of Rights was even necessary) Locke continued this line of reasoning and developed the Governance Doctrine known as Consent of the Governed. In essence, government could only rule with the consent of the governed. And, in fact, that exact phrase appears in the American Declaration of Independence. [ If you want a little more detail you can read Natural Law: How WE THE PEOPLE got to the 4th of July,1776 2/2 http://goo.gl/If3Pxk and Proof that our country is founded on Natural Law http://t.co/rZswNupbeO] Another important concept developed and/or reestablished at this point in time was the Rule of Law. In brief, the Rule of Law provides that all men, regardless of wealth, position or social status, should be judged in the same manner pursuant to the same code of laws. With that extremely brief background, it is now possible to continue laying out the background which reveals the true magnitude of Judge Richard Leon's ruling.

WHAT SHOULD BE

Upon having secured victory in our revolution, the Founder's set about creating Foundational Documents. Their first attempt....

DTMPONDERINGS: WE THE PEOPLE’s 2013 Christmas wish list to government

On a cold and blustery Christmas in 1776, then General George Washington and his troops endured the elements in an encampment on the banks of the Delaware River with little food and insufficient clothing. Washington and his troops were willing to endure these hardships as necessary to fulfill our government’s (then the Continental Congress) promise to free Americans from the tyranny of King George and replace it with the enlightened liberty of Natural Law.[Proof that our country is founded on Natural Law http://t.co/rZswNupbeO]

To know the true significance of what was at stake, one must understand that our American Revolution was in reality a revolt against the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings. Pursuant to the Divine Right of Kings, the King is a God or an emissary of God here on earth. Therefore, no earthly-being can question the decisions of the King. Under the Divine Right of Kings, persons had no rights; there were only permissions and privileges that could be revoked by the King or his representatives at any time for any reason. And truth was established by the King and the Church.

During the Enlightenment (circa 1650AD-1800AD) there was a scientific, intellectual and culture revolution of thought. Average persons came to question the authority of the King and the Church. Using their own observations and reasoning, individuals began determining truth for themselves. During this time, Men of Letters such as John Locke, developed a body of thought that came to be known as Natural Law. Amongst other things, Natural Law prescribed that all men had certain unalienable Natural Law Rights. (In fact, Natural Law was so well known and understood at the time that the Founder's debated whether the Bill of Rights was even necessary) Locke continued this line of reasoning and developed the Governance Doctrine known as “Consent of the Governed”. In essence, government could only rule with the consent of the governed. And, in fact, that exact phrase appears in the American Declaration of Independence, as well as does the “Laws of Nature”. [ If you want a little more detail you can read Natural Law: How WE THE PEOPLE got to the 4th of July,1776 2/2 http://goo.gl/If3Pxk and/or listen to free audio book 2 Treatises of Civil Government by John Locke https://t.co/qDCsduYZ3w]

What follows are a few statements summarizing some of the sentiments and principles of Natural Law and Consent of the Governed. These statements were part and parcel of the belief system of our Founders. This writer hopes these statements will make more clear the vision our Founders had for this country and its individual citizens.
  • Using their own observations and reasons, the individual determines truth for themselves;
  • Self-Determination – Each individual shall determine the course of their lives for themselves, while at the same time accepting the rewards and consequences for their own decisions;
  • All persons are created equal;
  • “Man... hath by nature a power.... to preserve his property - that is, his life, liberty, and estate - against the injuries and attempts of other men.” John Locke;
  • “Liberty is to be free from restraint and violence from others” John Locke;
  • "To understand political power right, and derive it from its original, we must consider, what state all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions and persons, as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature, without asking leave, or depending upon the will of any other man." Locke, John. The Second Treatise of Civil Government. 1690;
  • "every man being, as has been shewed[should], naturally free, and nothing being able to put him into subjection to any earthly power, but only his own consent" John Locke Two Treatises of Government #119;
  • MEN being, as has been said, by nature, all free, equal, and independent, no one can be put out of this estate, and subjected to the political power of another, without his own consent. The only way whereby any one divests himself of his natural liberty, and puts on the bonds of civil society, is by agreeing with other men to join and unite into a community for their comfortable, safe, and peaceable living one amongst another, in a secure enjoyment of their properties, and a greater security against any, that are not of it. This any number of men may do, because it injures not the freedom of the rest; they are left as they were in the liberty of the state of nature. When any number of men have so consented to make one community or government, they are thereby presently incorporated, and make one body politic, wherein the majority have a right to act and conclude the rest. Locke, Section 95;
  • "But though men when they enter into society, give up the equality, liberty and executive power they had in the state of nature, into the hands of the society, to be so far disposed of by the legislature, as the good of the society shall require; yet it being only with an intention to everyone the better to preserve himself his liberty and property" (Second Treatise, Chapter 9);
  • Men, having been given free will, are not virtuous by nature and, acknowledging their imperfections, create governments so that they may live in safety and harmony together - Cato Letters 59&60;
  • “Freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society, and made by the legislative power vested in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all things, when the rule prescribes not, and not to be subject to the inconstant, unknown, arbitrary will of another man.” John Locke;
  • "The rulers ... exercising a power the people never put into their hands (who can never be supposed to consent, that anybody should rule over them for their harm), do that, which they have not a right to do. And where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven, whenever they judge the cause of sufficient moment". John Locke, Second Treatise of Government Chapter 14 (Consent of the Governed);
  • "Government being for the preservation of every man's right and property, by preserving him from the violence or injury of others, is for the good of the governed".John Locke, First Treatise on Government Chapter 9, (Consent of the Governed);
  • "But if a long train of abuses, prevarications and artifices, all tending the same way, make the design visible to the people, and they cannot but feel, what they lie under, and whither they are going, 'tis not to be wondered, that they should then rouse themselves, and endeavour to put the rule into such hands, which may secure to them the ends for which government was at first enacted". (Second Treatise, Chapter 19);
  • "Whenever the power that is put in any hands for the government of the people, and the protection of our properties, is applied to other ends, and made use of to impoverish, harass or subdue them to the arbitrary and irregular commands of those that have it; there it presently becomes tyranny, whether those that thus use it are one or many". (Second Treatise, Chapter 18);
  • "(Tyranny is) ... when the governor, however entitled, makes not the law, but his will, the rule; and his commands and actions are not directed to the preservation of the properties of his people, but the satisfaction of his own ambition, revenge, covetousness, or any other irregular passion". (Second Treatise, Chapter 18);
  • "He" (the supreme executive) "also acts contrary to his trust, when he either employs the force, treasure and offices of the society, to corrupt the representatives, and gain them to his purposes; or openly pre-engages the electors, and prescribes to their choice, such, whom he has by solicitations, threats, promises, or otherwise won them to his designs, and employs them to bring in such, who have promised beforehand, what to vote, and what to enact". (Second Treatise, Chapter 19);
  • #Tyranny is the exercise of power beyond right, which nobody can have a right to John #Locke 2nd Treatise on Government Chapter18.
So beautifully and eloquently do these statements represent the nature and desires of a free mankind, that one must wonder if their descent into obscurity was accidental or contrived. Dear Government, WE THE PEOPLE put it to thee, is your failure to educate rank and file Americans in Natural Law by design to work to enslave us as we were under the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings? We pray thee answer truthfully.

Further, Dear Government, everything you have been doing lately seems to be in diametric opposition to the intent and promises of our revolutionary government. Our current government seems intent on restoring the governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings. Excepting , of course, that instead of a King whose decisions cannot be questioned because they allege their divinity, it is the decisions of Progressive Educated Elites whose decisions cannot be questioned because they allege their superior intellect and education as well as unquestionable altruism.
"A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate." Thomas Jefferson
In the Spirit of this Holiday Season, this writer will break this tense, awkward familial moment with the following segue.

“WE THE PEOPLE pray that our President, Congress and Courts and other elected officials provide WE THE PEOPLE with the peaceful remedy of restoring our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Natural Law before WE THE PEOPLE are forced to withdraw our Consent to be Governed.”

Should our elected officials be unsure of where to begin in restoring Natural Law and the Natural Rights of WE THE PEOPLE, this writer has provided this list as a starting point. With vision of our Country’s Founders as its template, this writer sets forward this more detailed Christmas 2013 wish list to our government.
  1. Please restore to WE THE PEOPLE a government whose foundation is built with integrity;
  2. Please abide by Natural Law, the Constitution and Bill of Rights as they were written. The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written to be anchors against the erosion of Liberty and expansion of tyranny. You have used the false premise of a living Constitution to wrongly justify your expansion of power and reduction of the Liberty of WE THE PEOPLE;
  3. Please restore to WE THE PEOPLE our inalienable right to determine Truth for ourselves using our own observations and reasoning;
  4. Please restore to WE THE PEOPLE our inalienable right to Self-Determination;
  5. Please make the teaching of Natural Law and the Governance Doctrine of Consent of the Governed required subject matter, from First Grade (age appropriate of course) and never let them fall into obscurity again;
  6. Please stop thinking you and/or other Educated Elites are better than.....

DTMPOLITICALONDERINGS: WHILE VISIONS OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCCOUNTABILITY DANCED IN THEIR HEADS (1 of 3)

In crafting the foundational documents for our republic, our Founders chose to follow the advice of John Locke. They constructed our government with the Nature of Man in mind. Perhaps nothing better sums up the Founder’s perspective of the Nature of Man than Cato Letters 59&60 (1720AD-1723AD):
Men, having been given free will, are not virtuous by nature and, acknowledging their imperfections, create governments so that they may live in safety and harmony together.

Acting on this knowledge, our Founding Fathers built into our Government and Constitution, various checks and balances. Amongst these checks and balances were transparency and accountability. [http://goo.gl/R2KfY4 ]

Until this just past week it seemed that our Federal, State and Local governments had forgot about their obligations of transparency and accountability to WE THE PEOPLE. In the past few days Minnesotans have been tantalized with the prospect of the return to a policy of checks, balances, transparency and accountability in our State and local governments in accordance with the Constitution and the vision our Founders had for this Country.

In rapid succession, our state and federal government, some local law enforcement and the federal judiciary have agreed to the outsourcing of the investigation of complaints against Minneapolis police officers (MPD), financial disclosure by Minnesota State Judges and a Federal Judge has ruled the majority of data mining by the NSA to be unconstitutional. These actions represent a move in the right direction by Federal and Minnesota State and Local Governance in providing peaceful resolution to redress grievances brought by a wide-ranging coalition of citizens.

This writer will begin by providing you links to various Major Media reporting of these actions. Then this writer will offer his perspective and analysis of these Liberty expanding actions over the course of 3 successive daily installments. This analysis to include pointing out major media‘s spin, which this writer believes accrues to the detriment of rank and file Americans. In the end, this writer will ask the reader to use their own observations and reasoning to determine truth for themselves (pursuant to Natural Law) using Critical Thinking [http://goo.gl/R2KfY4].

With Major Media feeling obligated to run ads alleging they are more trustworthy than the internet, it will be interesting to hear whether you find major media’s reporting or this writer’s reporting as better reflecting the truth you will determine for yourself?
You can read the major media’s spun versions of these expansions of Transparency and Accountability of government here:

Though one of these actions seems to be lacking in sincerity and scope, they represent concessions in a well documented struggle by groups this writer has lead, leads or has otherwise been affiliated with to achieve peaceful resolution to some of our Natural Law Right Petitions for Redress of Grievances without fear of punishment and reprisal as reduced to writing in the 1st Amendment.

For those new readers who are unaware, this writer has been involved in what he now calls the WE THE PEOPLE TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform) movement for more than 20 years. While this writer has been primarily engaged in demanding Judicial TAR and Government Fiscal TAR, he has been aligned with and affiliated with groups with diverse demands for redress of grievances from our government.

If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine. I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!
