The Ati-thesis , Marxism

"By that definition, a state capitalist country is one where the government controls the economy and essentially acts like a single huge corporation, extracting the surplus value from the workforce in order to invest it in further production.[3] Friedrich Engels, in Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, argues that state capitalism would be the final stage of capitalism consisting of ownership and management of large-scale production and communication by the bourgeois state.[4]"

Madison VS Marxism - Part Two James Madison.

Madison VS Marxism -Part One Karl Marx

Like Karl Marx, Madison was born into a wealthy farming family, and like Karl Marx, James Madison took up the cause of the laborers as recorded in various comments that Madison makes about slavery in the Federalist Papers and in letters. In Colonial America of the 1700's, the farm laborers were slaves. Slavery later became an issue of great contention during the framing of the United States Constitution but it was realized that trying to resolve the issue of slavery while trying to bring several states into a union, some of which had economies dependent on slavery was not a viable direction.

Like Karl Marx, Madison was sent to college to study. Madison attended the University now known as Princeton. Unlike Marx, Madison was a diligent and hard working student. Where as Marx became co-president of a drinking society, Madison founded a debating society called the American Whig–Cliosophic Society.  Madison's studies included Latin, Greek, science, geography, mathematics, rhetoric, and philosophy. Madison also  studied law from an interest in public policy, not practice.

After graduation, Madison remained at Princeton to study Hebrew and political philosophy.
While I cannot claim to knowledge of what Madison's study of the Hebrew language entailed, I make note of the fact that both the Greek and Latin languages, which Madison studied as an undergraduate, along with the Hebrew language have codified esoteric meanings derived from ancient symbolic associations between the characters of the alphabet and numbers. The study of these relationships is called gematria and is part of esoteric spiritual wisdom. The Great Seal of the United States is said to be a Masonic symbol de-codified through gematria. However according to the Masonic Society of Pennysylvania the status of Madison and Jefferson as Freemasons remains speculative, none the less there is no doubt that Madison believed in God and that freedom of religion was one of his most vehemently pursued causes.

 The belief in God is a philosophical premise. Either one believes there is a higher power or one doesn't -or takes an agnostic point of view. To either believe in God or to believe in no-God is a fundamental premise that effects all that follows from it. Because our nation was founded by men who believed in a God- and who were primarily Christian, the foundations of our political philosophy are primarily spiritual. Because Marxism is founded by a man who describes himself as an atheist, the foundation of Marxism is materialistic. Atheists say there is nothing after death. In esoteric wisdom "no thing" is a name of God. Even the language signifier conveys a different significance.

Madison's studies in political philosophy must have been historically grounded for he brought a great deal of knowledge of past political systems- particularly pure democracies to the discussions by Publius in The Federalist Papers, precursor to the framing of the United States Constitution

Madison foresaw and feared that political ideology credited to Karl Marx and promoted by Marx's ideological descendent Barack Obama. According to Jack Rakove, director of the American Studies Program at Stanford University.
At the Federal Convention, Madison told his fellow delegates that he foresaw a day when power will slide into the hands" of "those who labour under all the hardships of life, and secretly sigh for a more equal distribution of its blessings." And even if the Constitution succeeded in checking the danger from a dispossessed proletariat, Madison thought that almost any act of legislation or taxation would affect rights of property. "What are many of the most important acts of legislation," he asked in Federalist 10, "but so many judicial determinations . concerning the rights of large bodies of citizens?"
Madison also says this in Federalist Paper #10:

 The diversity in the faculties of men, from which the rights of property originate, is not less an insuperable obstacle to a uniformity of interests. The protection of these faculties is the first object of government. From the protection of different and unequal faculties of acquiring property, the possession of different degrees and kinds of property immediately results; and from the influence of these on the sentiments and views of the respective proprietors, ensues a division of the society into different interests and parties.
So in stressing that the faculties of men are unequal, Madison is talking about individuality and expressing the importance of protecting human individuality as "the first object of government"- the direct opposite of Marx's collectivist approach " in the interest of the immense majority". Federalist Paper #10 by James Madison is concerned with preventing a tyranny by the majority.

Compared this to what  "senior lecturer," at the University of Chicago Law School" Barack Obama said in this 2001 radio interview:
But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.
In a 2007 fundraiser Obama claimed "I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president, I actually respect the Constitution."

We are told that Barack Obama was educated at Harvard and Columbia- America's premier ivy league schools. Are we to believe that a law education at  such schools does not include a study of the political philosophy of the framers of the United States Constitution as recorded in the Federalist Papers- or should we take this apparent ignorance on the part of one of  Chicago University's "senior legal lecturers" as a key as to why Obama's educational records are a ferociously guarded secret? The disconnect between Obama's alleged educational background and his misunderstandings of and/or ignorance of and/or disregard for our founding political philosophy which Obama perpetuates using his claimed educational background as a basis for his authority, leads to speculations that Obama's educational background was "arranged" for him by hidden forces manipulating a  fundamental transformation of the United States of America- as is the story told in this video by a physicist about a dinner conversation he claims to  have been part of in Russia in the 1990's . There is nothing to back up the story beyond the word of  the teller but the plausibility of speculation is measured by the consistency of the parts and if it is consistent within a larger context- which, I submit, is the case when considering the secrecy surrounding Obama's educational records- his disdain for the constitution as been demonstrated on numerous occasions since he made his arguably ignorant remarks about our constitution in the 2001 radio interview, and a plethora of information concerning the soviets intention to fundamentally transform the USA from within.- All theory- but consistent theory, backed up by many stories told from many different sources.

Madison VS Marxism - Part One- Karl Marx

In contradistinction to the class warfare and collectivist ideology marketed by Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto and Barack Obama in his never ending political campaign, the United States of America was founded in an ideology rooted in the balance of power aimed at protecting individual freedom as expressed in the words of James Madison

It is of great importance in a republic not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers, but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part. Different interests necessarily exist in different classes of citizens. If a majority be united by a common interest, the rights of the minority will be insecure. There are but two methods of providing against this evil: the one by creating a will in the community independent of the majority -- that is, of the society itself; the other, by comprehending in the society so many separate descriptions of citizens as will render an unjust combination of a majority of the whole very improbable, if not impracticable. The first method prevails in all governments possessing an hereditary or self-appointed authority. This, at best, is but a precarious security; because a power independent of the society may as well espouse the unjust views of the major, as the rightful interests of the minor party, and may possibly be turned against both parties. The second method will be exemplified in the federal republic of the United States. Whilst all authority in it will be derived from and dependent on the society, the society itself will be broken into so many parts, interests, and classes of citizens, that the rights of individuals, or of the minority, will be in little danger from interested combinations of the majority........James Madison Federalist Paper #51
The Structure of the Government Must Furnish the Proper Checks and Balances Between the Different Departments
And for comparison's sake: From The Communist manifesto:

All previous historical movements were movements of minorities, or in the interest of minorities. The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interest of the immense majority.  Marx and Engels - The Communist Manifesto

The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.  Karl Marx From Economic & Philosophical Manuscripts, 1844

“He is going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street.  He is going to put y'all back in chains."  Joe Biden spreading the Marxian class warfare for the Obama re-election campaign- USA 2012
A brief background of Karl Marx, cribbed from Wikipedia

Karl Marx was born into a wealthy middle class family of Jewish ancestry who owned a  vineyard. Both Marx's paternal and maternal grandfathers were rabbis' but Marxs' father Heinrich Marx was the first to receive a secular education. Marx's father was a lawyer. As Jews they had inferior legal and social status and so Marx's father's converted to the Lutheran religion, after a Prussian edict denied Jews to the bar.

Marx's mother Henrietta Pressburg, was a dutch Jew, whose family later founded Philips Electronics. Her brother, Benjamin Philips , was a wealthy banker and industrialist, who later lent money to Marx when he was exiled to London and his family was living in abject poverty while Marx founded the Communist league and was involved in various socialist political activities. Marx identified himself as an atheist.

Marx was interested in philosophy and literature but his father insisted that he get an education in law at the University of Bonn, where Marx became the co-president of the Trier Tavern Club drinking society. Marx was more interested in drinking and socializing than in studying. His poor grades led his father to insist that he transfer to the more serious University of Berlin, where Marx remained more interested in philosophy and history than legal studies.

Marx became an unpublished author of fiction and poems but soon gave that up. His college thesis The Difference Between the Democritean and Epicurean Philosophy of Nature, according to Wikipedia, has been described as "a daring and original piece of work in which he set out to show that theology must yield to the superior wisdom of philosophy"

Marx then pursued a career in journalism and political activism.

I'll stop my short history of Karl Marx here- you can continue reading on Wikipedia. The point is to show the background of the main personality responsible for the class warfare ideology that has spread like wildfire throughout this state and country in recent years with the help of Marx's ideological descendant, Barack Obama. Like Marx, Obama has a legal education. While Marx never entered the legal profession, Obama's main claim to fame is as a community organizer- a kinder and gentler term for political activist- and specifically in Obama's case- a political activist for radical racist anti-American causes. While Marx's grades were poor. Obama's grades are under lock and key. Marx engaged in drinking, Obama tried cocaine and both men share an interest in socializing, marketing, and the media - Marx as a journalist and Obama as a manipulator and an author of books whose true author is speculated by some to be Bill Ayers.

Marx's famous description of religion as the "the opiate of the people", underscores Marx's view that the people can be collectively manipulated through mind control. Those that study the esoteric basis of religion will understand that religion is dependent on the individual's ability to receive transcendent knowledge. Such knowledge cannot be conveyed by man over man as Marx's description suggests.  Marx's description is more apropos to marketing than it is to religion. The phraseology popularized by Marx deflects its' hidden questions- Who is the administrator of the opiate ? and What is the religion? Since esoteric religion is a relationship between a higher power and man, the description of religion as portrayed by Karl Marx is just a political description, that of the power that man can wield over man. An atheist is one who recognizes no power higher than man and can there by never have a real understanding of the genuine esoteric basis of religion. By self definition, atheist are precluded from such an understanding. Since Marx's description is a political description - one of power of man over man- the religion to which he refers must be atheism- or secular religion- a term that can be applied to almost anything, excepting esoteric religion, including the power of marketing- which is what Marx and his ideological descendent, Barack Obama are really about- and why both are proponents of a collectivist society- or a society in which "the immense majority" can be easily manipulated through mass mind control- a pursuit that the Communists have been at since Marx and Engels first produced the Communist Manifesto. That secular religion can wear any garb including the clothing of an esoterically founded religion. It is very common for the radical left to conceal their true identities in the garb of the "other". The concept of using religion as a power of man over man is an atheist concept. To the atheist, politics-  the power of man over man- is the highest power that exist.There is no other power in their delusions.

Marx was  never a financially successful man in his own right. Both Marx and Engels were the beneficiaries of the class that they sought to over throw through their political activism- i.e., the private property owners, which Marx and Engels refer to as the bourgeoisie.

Marx and Engels were not members of the laboring class but took it upon themselves to  be the voice of that class,("self-appointed authority" - to borrow from James Madison in the quote above) - as if to say that laborers needed the academic class to create, articulate and express their views for them, which in its self betrays as much a hidden disregard for the laboring class as Marx and Engels express disdain for a private property owning class from whence Marx and Engels derived their capital means to speak as the voice of the laboring class. Marx and Engels were of the academic class and that perhaps explains why the long planned communist "fundamental transformation" of the USA began in our educational system - what better vehicle for mass mind control?

To be continued.

AfterNote: I have been continuing researching with the aim of discovering if Karl Marx ever had any personal connections with anyone of the labor class but so far I have  not found any mention of Marx having a close relationship with anyone outside of his own class of academics and intellectuals. This article from the Trustworthy Encyclopedia is more informative than the wikipedia article but still does  not mention that Karl Marx had a personal connection with the laboring classes.

When The American Dream Meets The Communist Manifesto

This post is of a more personal nature. In my local existence I am surrounded in all directions by those who voted for Obama, not  just once but twice. Some of them are aware that I listen to the news every evening and that I have a strong interest in politics and so if I should ever introduce a political subject they quickly leave the room or respond with a non sequitur. They never introduce any political subjects themselves and so it is impossible to tell their level of awareness about what is going on in the world. It is hard  for me to understand how anyone can watch the nightly news and not feel compelled to express ones thoughts, the more so during the election season- but I watch Fox News and if they watch the news at all it is probably the main stream media, which in 2012 might as well be called the Pravda media , appropriate to the way the news is  reported in service of our dear leader president Obama.

This is a difficult post to write as I am not sure what to do  with it. I usually do not write about my own affairs on my political blog but I cannot express my political thoughts on my business blog.

Since my business is in the art world, I am politically a fish out of water. I am surrounded by  those who adamantly do not talk politics. Today I read Obama's deranged statement accusing Boehner of not offering a "balanced approach" to fiscal cliff negotiations, all the while excluding any mention of deficit reductions. I found it so disturbing that I broke the unwritten law and I asked those around me if they are aware of the fiscal cliff. True to form I was cut off mid-sentence by one who said with an accusing edge in their voice "I'll tell you what I am aware of- that Bath Iron works might close down. I started to say that if we go over the fiscal cliff, defense spending will be cut with an sledge hammer and so that is quite likely but I was cut off again as it was explained to me that the cause of the possible shut down is that "they won't vote". It was clear that no further discussion was welcomed. And also clear that Obama's belief that the public will blame the Republicans for not agreeing to tax the successful without any further consideration of reducing spending. Obama doesn't intend to reduce spending. he intends to increase it. it seems clear to me that only the republicans are motivated by the will to bring the United States economy back to health, while Obama is motivated by the will to extract capital, wealth and property from the private sector and into the hands of government as fast as he can, while he still has the power to do so. This would result in the "fundamental transformation of the United States, delivering us to the communists as the communists have so patiently planned for decades.

Last September I was driving on the beautiful River Road,  feeling inspired about the KickStarter project I have been working on when suddenly a dark thought intruded upon my reverie as I remembered the state of our economy. In a moment I blew it off, realizing that what I had been experiencing, prior to the intrusion, is the American dream which has made this country great, a reminder that even in the worst of times, it is the spirit that makes us want to build something that finds a a way to triumph.

That was then, before the election, when it was possible to believe that the Obama presidency was about to recede. Times would still be tough but with a new president we could start to find our way back to the American dream. Since the election, the dark cloud is darker, no longer just the  bad economy and ominous foreign affairs,  Now the darkness is about the all too real eventuality that our generation is living through the fundamental transformation of the land of the free, - a transformation that has been patiently and deviously planned by the enemies of our philosophical principals for decades, led by the communists,  who have developed a long and patient strategy for conquering the United States from within.

My American dream is rooted in the past and hoping to grow into the future, beyond my own generation. I was given a unique American business by my parents. An important aspect of my dream is to be able to hand down an engaging work process and creative opportunity to a new generation.  But this small family business and the product that it creates has always been emblematic of American individuality such that I have long been conscious that our business cannot creatively exist in a collective society in which the government controls all and in which the government owns all property. I am seeing before our eyes a process of wealth transference from the private sector to the government sector implemented by Obama's taxation policies and driven by his class warfare philosophy. Such a transference is an important step in the fundamental transformation of the United States into communism - a society in which there is no private ownership, excepting, as has developed in Communist China, the members of "the party" are allowed to own property and there usually exists a bureaucratic class that lives a much more abundant lifestyle than the people - Not so different than parts of the United States today, where in government employees enjoy a higher standard of living than the taxpayers who foot the bill.

Some of our pundits try to convince themselves that Obama will be motivated to bring our American economy back to health by the desire to have a positive legacy for his presidency.  I believe that Obama is a Manchurian president, the result of long and patient planning by the communist conspiracy and as such the legacy that Obama wants is not one framed by the American dream but by the Communist Manifesto, which demonizes private capital and posits that the entire capital of the globe should be in the hands of one world government. Global government has long been the  goal of the communist and Islamic jihad alike Let them battle it out, once they defeat their mutual enemy - The United States of America- One a philosophical system based in atheism and the other a theocracy - both oppressive of human freedom and neither is philosophically tolerant of the other.

The news  analysts talk of the uncertainty that is hampering economic growth. They say there is capital that is being withheld from the economy because entrepreneurs do not know what level of taxation and what new regulations will affect business and the economic environment. Our business is fortunate to be small enough to escape being in  the Obama regimes' current "targeted sector" but the focus of my dream, my  vision and my goals is to ensure that this business has a long and enduring living legacy. Until this past election, I never imagined that that future world might be the USSA. It's hard to imagine fitting into that picture- and it is difficult to  "normalize" and to regain one's focus in one's local reality- but this we must.

And therein lies the purpose of this post- this is my self therapy post in which I try to establish my own local normalization process. Like most businesses and people we must take one day at a time. The world is the most uncertain that I have ever experienced and all we can do is just keep on keeping on.

I pray that the 43 trillion dollar law suit pursued by the  Spire Law Group soon proceeds and is adjudicated by an honest judge.

I hope that The House Judiciary Committee impeaches Obama and his administration on a growing list of charges that includes Fast and Furious and Bengahz1.

If one or both of these are successful, then and only then can I envision passing our living legacy on to future generations of the USA.

The War of the Memes

 A meme (play /ˈmm/; meem)[1] is "an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture."[2] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures.  as quoted from wikipedia

Below is a well informed and clearly articulated  video by a New Zealand researcher and author Trevor Loudon, author of Barack Obama And The Enemy Within. Loudon has investigated Obama's background and the deeply rooted communist beliefs of those that shaped the philosophical development of the youthful Obama. In this video, created before the elections , Loudon pleads with Americans, for the sake of the entire western world, not to re-elect Obama

An Urgent Message To America

I found this video so compelling that I have listened to it many times over and I posted it on AS Maine Goes, a primarily conservative forum,  where, as far as I can tell no one listened to the video except Eagleisland who claimed to have listened to it partially and then stopped because he found it  boring.

While ignoring the video, The responders weighed in on the other headline in the topic title - the call to impeach Obama , declaring in unison that Obama cannot be impeached, citing as reasons the color of Obama's skin and the media love affair with our dear leader .

The author of the video, Trevor Loudon,  is also the author of Barack Obama an the Enemies Within. Loudon describes how his country, New Zealand, was manipulated by foreign powers into severing their military alliance with the United States. Loudon's source is a former soviet spy who studied at the Lenin Institute for Higher Learning with 35000 students from all over the world excluding the United States, who is the main enemy. The spy sat in a room with members of the KGB and tutors from the institute. The soviets were planting ideas and funding the peace marches aiming at breaking up NATO

A couple of days after I watched the Trevor Loudon Video, when its impact was still  weighing on my mind, I watched the movie Inception. Inception is a science fiction film about a team that goes into people's minds as they sleep and extracts ideas from the dreamer- but the team is now challenged to go even further to implant an idea into the dreamers mind.

As I watched the movie, it spoke as a metaphor for the soviet based political manipulations that Trevor Loudon described. The soviets evolved a social science that can be used to access and manipulate the minds of the masses.

 I haven't read Trevor Loudon's book and so I am speculating as to how the seeding and manipulation of the memes has long been practiced, primarily by the enemies of the American political philosophy which targets humanity through the emotions to a greater degree than the American conservative who rely more strongly on reason. but that is not entirely so and so the same memes with identical emotional content can be tailor made for either the left or the right, but I believe that the left understands the process and power of such manipulations far more acutely than does the right.

The first step is to go into the mental landscape of the targeted group and extract ideas. This is important because in order to have a powerful effect, the targeted individual or group has to believe that the ideas being perpetuated are their own. What better way to do this than to start with self seeded ideas and feed them a shot of growth stimulus? The character of the meme, which I am intending here, are thoughts that are passed on, borrowed, adopted and repeated with very little examination. An example in contemporary news is the current media blitz that tells us that four "conservative" representatives of the House lost committee assignments because they are conservatives. If one googles the a search term about the committee assignments the entire page will be filled with stories of a similar headline but upon reading the stories there is no evidence that the news media has a genuine inside track to what is taking place in the Republican Committee assignments. The four who lost their appointments are identified as "conservatives" because they "held their ground" on deficit reductions and balancing the budget, refusing to vote for that passage of a resolution that did not meet their measure.

I submit that the definition of a conservative should not be contingent on a form of action. Conservative principles are goals. Forms of actions are means of achieving the goal. One can stand one's ground on all of the demands that one wants, and call that being "principled" without a single second of reflection as to the functional result that one's form of action (standing one's ground) can be expected to achieve. This was the modus operendi of the far left during the elections season. To my grass roots observation- those that called them selves "principled" campaigned heavily against Romney and the Republicans and accepted no responsibility for the electoral function of their actions. Once Obama had (allegedly) won the presidency and the Democrats had retained the Senate- that same self-proclaimed "more principled than thou" contingency turned their bashing actions on vaguely identified targets such as "The Republican leadership",and "The Republican establishment" and of course John Boehner, who is held accountable for all the actions of the House Republicans including committee actions in which Boehner is not even a member. The reason is clear:  it is easier to have a catch all target of blame than to actually educate oneself on the balance of powers that the US Constitution provides and identify which House members chair which committees to reveal the real chain of command That takes some work.

Getting back to the mind control process central to the plot of the movie, Inception The route to such control is through the emotions and in convincing the dreamer that the thoughts being planted are his own. The dream master who traveled deep into the dreamscape  needs a reference point lest he lose track of what is real. in the movie, the dream master's reference point is the spinning function of a top. which in the real world eventually slows to a stop but within a dream just keeps on spinning. In order to execute a  reality check, the dream master must observe "how the spinning top functions, That, I submit, is almost the same question that we need to ask to identify which side of the political divide an idea, or an individual, or a group serves.  A true conservative must serve conservative ends in the real and practical world.

One of the fundamental principals of conservativism is self reliance and personal responsibility. During the election season- there developed a third party contingency which perceived itself to be more principled than the rest of the conservative movement. In their eyes they are the entire conservative movement, which they made clear by actively and aggressively campaigning against Romney and the Republicans. I am familiar with the third party faction from various online forums, where one was vilified if one dared to contest misinformation that was being spread about Romney and the Republicans. If one brought up the subject of Obama, the third party contingency would claim to be anti-Obama but at the same time they insisted that staying true to their principals called for remaining outside of the electoral process and accepting no personal responsibility for the electoral function of their negative campaigning directed squarely at Romney and the Republicans. In response to this line of reasoning, I once said that I would hold the third party faction responsible should Obama win the election. Even as the race was tightening right up to election day, the third party contingency was advancing a campaign to encourage others to take the "principled" action of voting for a third party instead of for Romney whom they demonized with predictable, often repeated and ill considered ideas. One of the most prevalent ideas was the slogan that Romney is just another Obama. The two men are as different as night and day. (said at the risk of being called racist for using such a metaphor).

After the elections the right wing pundits are asking what did we do wrong. My answer is that what we did wrong is still being done and that is the identification of a principal with a form of action.  I am seeing the same individuals who bashed Romney and the Republicans and swore not to vote for Romney as a badge of their principals, now bashing  Boehner and what they often refer to as "the Republican establishment, which if one scratches the surface means the same on the far right as it means on the far left- ie. "old white men" to quote Debbie Wasserman Schultz in one of her most racist, sexist moments. Whenever I asked why the third party constituents so hated Romney, it was inevitable that they would answer by describing Romney as a generic establishment type, citing his wealth as a reason why they hated him, sounding no different than the class war-farers on the left.

With the media launching into a chorus of "The Conservatives were dropped because they are conservatives", implying that the "Republican leadership" is not conservative, the right wing media is re-enforcing the living meme festered as the third party constituency during the election, which told themselves that they and they alone are conservatives, The media's conclusions are arrived at with virtually no investigations- just interviews with the alleged conservative victims- all that is needed to justify the claims the media makes as it rushes to judgement that "wrong" actions were taken - with no consideration that there might be more to this story than their foregone conclusions. The effect of this media frenzy is to reinforce the delusions of the very faction that refused to accept personal responsibility for the function that their voting choices serve- that functional result being the election of an administration and a Senate majority that is least inclined to advance the principals of conservativism.  I am not making my own judgement about the four representatives who lost their appointments, about whom I know nothing. I am talking about what I am observing at the grass roots level, which is in other terms, the electorate.

Obama (allegedly) won the election by a slim margin. I hold the third party contingency,  responsible for the construction of our government for the next four years. I think the right wing media is making a huge mistake in playing to the misguided conceits of this faction. 'Holding ones ground" does not make one more principled or more conservative than any one else. Having a clear understanding and commitment to conservative principals combined with accepting personal responsibility for how ones political choices advance or hinder those principles is the measure of a true conservative. "Holding ones ground" and/or negotiating are forms of strategic action. There is room for differences of opinion about what strategic actions will best serve the ultimate achievement of the goal.

I just want to say to that third party contingency - whose activity I have observed locally and on the internet to no small degree: "You are responsible for the formation of our government for the next four years. The very government formation that you helped to put into power though your actions and non-actions necessitates negotiation with those that do not share our conservative values. If not for your negative campaigning and expressed voting choices, we might be looking at a Romney Presidency and even a  Republican Senate majority in congress. In an election as close as it was, your actions are accountable. In your per-election rhetoric you refused to accept personal responsibility for the out come of the elections and so divorced principle from function. It is the outcome of the election that makes satisfying your demands so difficult and its time for you to own up to the role that you played that sets us back in achieving the goals the we mutually seek. It is time for you to make some attitude adjustments appropriate to the real world.

And I want to tell the media to stop legitimizing the arrogance of the far right by continuing to label them as the "true conservative", which feeds their continued lack of responsibility to the greater good. They are not more conservative than others. They have failed the reality check- which in a word is functionality!

We are told in meme like fashion that it is "wrong" for the "Republican leadership" to remove "conservatives" from committees because of the way that they vote. Dare I ask why?  If there is shown to be an unrelenting voting pattern that bucks the "Republican leadership", then are not the so labeled "conservatives" functioning as dead weight if their collective vote is not enough to make a difference- or as obstinately as Obama if their vote is enough to obstruct the negotiating process by making demands that the Senate will find unacceptable?  Is not the process of negotiation built into the United States constitution by the very fact that it is constructed as a division of powers?

Could it be that these four committee members could better serve our country in a different function? The media meme does not bother to ask this question- nor does it wait to adjudicate until after we know the identity of the new appointees to the Budget and Financial Committees. The "Republican leadership" and "John Boehner" have been convicted by the media meme without a trial or a voice. Are we really to believe that this is the way "true conservativism" works?

In the age of the internet, the politicization of memes is more powerful a tool than ever. Memes can be intentionally seeded and nourished by a manipulator who conceals his true identity.  Organized groups are easily profiled and so become fertile ground for meme development. The Lenin Institute, and other organizations have long been profiling identifiable segments of the population. Ideas useful to the profiler are identified and the operators work to build momentum for the idea. The repetition of the idea legitimizes it to the most vulnerable minds. The meme takes on a reasoned appearance as it targets emotional responses and reactions.

One such example is the mantra that spread through the internet that said Romney is just another Obama. There is no reasonable support for such an idea but it was quite successful and given added impact through Obama's proliferation of the class warfare meme. But does anyone really believe, that even in a lame duck Congress session, that we would be facing the infantilism and arrogance that Obama is delivering if Romney were our next president? On second thought maybe so- when it's Obama about whom we speak- but does anyone really believe that we would be looking at the exact same next four years if we were about to enter the Romney presidency?

After Thoughts
Manchurian President picked by Russia
In this a video in which a physicist tells a prediction he heard in Russia in 1991 theat we would soon have a black communist president. The woman spoke with great certainty, identifying his name as Barack, that he had not yet entered politics, that he was from Hawaii and would have an ivy league education and that he was being groomed to be our president. She also said that the Communist movement knew that they had to take the United States.

Banned by Conservative Hammers

Yesterday, I was banned from the Face book forum, Conservative Hammers for questioning the media’s representation of the change in committee member’s of the House Budget and Financial Committees. - Also for defending John Boehner and Mitt Romney.

This does not matter since participation in a forum is only as valuable as the degree to which one has the freedom of speech to express one’s views. When Keith Brock, after reprimanding me for addressing him by his full name rather than as “Sir” or Mr. Brock”- telling me that I had not been granted permission to address him by the name that he goes by on Face book, published an announcement that he did not like to take such an action but as he announced “she is not a conservative’ and so he is justified in silencing my voice on the forum that he governs.

It is ironic because the “true conservatives” that allegedly populate Keith Brock's face book forum, Conservative Hammers, are part of the media chorus which unilaterally reports that the four congressmen were removed from the committees because they are conservatives- and so now Mr. Brock, after announcing to his loyal followers that I am not a conservative, at least in accordance with Keith Brooks personal definition of conservatives, uses said definition as a reason to remove me from his forum. Can this be the very definition of duplicity?

Touché to Keith Brock- By my definition, Keith Brock is no conservative because my definition of conservatism includes that which is being conserved  - the American political philosophy which is the basis of our great constitution and which includes the freedom of  speech, which Keith Brock has demonstrated himself to be intolerant there of, wanting to surround himself only with those who are in strict agreement with his own views. Keith's intolerant close minded attitude has sadly become the attitude that defines the (organized) far right., the same far right that is labeled by the media and themselves as the "true conservative" - more to say on that in my next blog post.

 Also ironic is that Keith Brock reprehended me for calling him by his name- Keith Brock- and then he turns around and calls me one who is not a conservative- which I consider to be slander- but calling me by my name- no one needs my permission to do so- announcing to the world that I am not a conservative- I take offense to that.

Obama's War On Business and the Impeachment Process

As I watch the daily news these days  I feel like the Obama administration feels it now has a mandate to charge full force ahead in its War On Business- or private enterprise- which is the more accurate terminology to use for the phrase "capitalism" coined by that infamous proponent of state capitalism- Karl Marx. The idea that reality can be transformed though a linguistic structure of perception is a popular method of the far left, as popular as using "social benefit programs" to sell themselves as the people's friend, when in fact those programs are being used to rob the public of their independence in exchange for the same sort of "property maintenance" that a slave owner needs to implement in order to maintain the value of his property.

So as Obama's War on Business proceeds we see business closing and laying off people to try to dodge the rapid fire assault that is being aimed right at them. Since the mysterious authors of the "too big to read"  ObamaCare legislation have decided that a thirty hour work week is full time employment, making businesses subject to the heaviest artillery fire in the administrations arsenal, if they offer employees greater than thirty hours a week, businesses are responding by laying people off and reducing work hours to under thirty hours per week.

During the years leading up to this all out war on private enterprise, I have heard many times over  from one individual or another telling of how wonderful it is in Europe that they have such a short work week. The fact that Europe is over burdened with debt and on the verge of bankruptcy is lost on the clueless who only see as far as "Isn't it wonderful that people in Europe do not have to work very hard !" I witnessed couple of liberals on the news who were advocating for a $20.00 an hour minimum wage. I wanted to ask them what they think the cost of a Big Mac should be.

If the Obama administration isn't stopped though the impeachment and conviction process which this administration has earned many times over by any normal standards. I believe they will have completed the mission destroying the "evil USA" in a year. Now that Obama has reportedly been handed the power to do so by a an either suicidal or shamelessly ignorant electorate, he will escalate his destructive mission. If we do not fight this enemy within, using the tools provided to us by our constitution, we are the worst generation ever in this country and comparable to the generation that embraced Adolph Hitler for much the same reasons- "social programs" sold as being for the"social benefit"

The Republican's "War on Women" was a big fat lie manufactured by our newly minted Ministry of Dis-Information" but Obama's War On Business is the real thing.

It is popular to say that our dear leader will never be impeached , based on the thin air theory of facts, and then to advocate secession or revolution as if that is not advocating the very chaos that the Progressives have been working toward for decades, but if you look at the facts of how the impeachment process proceeds, it is in the hands of the House, decided by the judiciary committee, which includes quite a few names recognizable for their active pursuit of the truth in Benghazi and Fast and Furious. A simple majority vote is all that it takes to impeach, with the Republicans having the majority in the House. The President of the Senate is in charge of conducting the trial, which would at first be the Vice President who implicated himself in the Benghazi cover up during the debates and has likely implicated himself in other ways as well. If the Vice President is included in the impeachment process, then the Senate trial is conducted by the most Senior member of the Senate, who is Daniel K. Inouye,(D) a war veteran and war hero who was on the Watergate committee and the Chairman of Iran Contra committees.

So that is wherein our hopes now shine, I myself must always follow that beacon of light that shines hope on the world. I agree with all the dismal forecasts of what will happen to the world if the light is darkened- but do not agree that it is the inevitable course in which this country is headed. The administration has stonewalled the Fast and Furious Investigation, and some Democrats, led by Harry Reed  are trying to stop an independent (Watergate style) investigation into Benghazi, but I believe that the far left can only forestall the constitutional process from preceding but not prevent it. and I am encouraged to see the whistle blowers on this administration that are emerging as the incredible charges on which this administration can be impeached just keep on multiplying. It's already far worse than Watergate, which had no body count. How far does it have to unravel before the general public gets over their misconceptions that this administration cannot be impeached? How many more murders in which the actions of this administration are implicated before the balloon of public mesmerization of this president and his gang is popped?

This is an interesting Blog post dated Sept 11, 2011 discussing Impeachment initiatives taking place in Congress, citing Fast and Furious, Solyndra, and picking winners and losers in the auto bail our by providing for union workers to retain their pensions but not so for non-union workers, Below are links to letters written by members of congress requesting information regarding the pension issue.
As this blog was being published, Benghazi was about to happen adding yet another major reason for impeachment.

Under the Surface of Society, A Dark and Tangled Web Of Manipulations

This quote from the 43 trillion dollar lawsuit hits the general public apathy toward it right on the nose:
This lawsuit is necessary to avoid the looming financial crisis that shall occur as a
result of the foregoing theft of $43 trillion-plus. Indeed, former TARP Inspector General Neil Banofsky has warned that another massive bailout will again be required if the money center banks and/or their principals are deemed “too big to jail.”

One of the most common responses from the general public who are in fact victims of these crimes is “they won’t do anything about it”- conceding without a fight that crime inc is “too big to jail”

Its much easier to get the general public talking about a revolution or seceding from the United States than it is to get them to consider using our constitution to reclaim our constitution. The public doesn’t think very far in advance as to what happens after a state secedes or a revolution occurs. In the case of the latter a new constitution must be formed and that will probably be influenced by whatever group is the most organized just as occurred in “the Arab Spring” in which the Muslim Brotherhood fit that bill.

Those deemed “too big to jail” are allegedly a globally organized network of crime in collusion with high-ups in the Obama administration who have made resources from the Federal Reserve available to the “banksters” as this organization is called in the law suit.

If the revolutionist succeed and form a new constitution- its still is only as good as it is actually followed and utilized. This lawsuit is being pursued by those with the kind of courage discipline and fortitude that it tales to maintain a constitution after its realization.

I just finished reading the detailed description of the home foreclosure racket perpetuated by the defendants. Although I knew some of the basics about this racket previously, I have never read about it in such detail and I never understood until now the willful intent in which Americans were relieved of all their personal property and credit ratings.

Downloading this PFD Doc of the lawsuit recommended

On a related subject both a recount petition and a secession petition are being by advanced by "We The People" - just another face of the current White House. The petitions require one to register with There is a link to click that says "WHY ?". Upon clicking on the link one learns that the reason why is because in order to sign he petition one must register with In nanny speak- that is "Why? Because I say so"

Although it is legally required to post notice of the use of marketing software that tags users to create personal interest profiles , and although one does not find such a notice on, I don't doubt that is using their friendly petitions with a Tea Party sounding name to do just that. In the M.O.  of the government-, these days, is that the laws apply to the private sector and not to them. I even suspect that the whitehouse may be responsible for starting the petitions in order to create profiles of those that sign them. Why not? There is nothing to stop them from doing so. The idea of appealing to the alleged winning party of an election for a recount- or for the right to secede from the government from whom one wishes to secede is downright oxymoronic- not to mention that the electoral process is in the hands of the state and that seceding is unconstitutional-

And not to consider, upon reading the 43 trillion dollar lawsuit that there is no way that (the alleged) would leave the results of the election up to chance- not with their alleged current collusion with the Obama administration - and especially not with a clean guy like Romney being the alternate choice.The lawsuit states crime inc (my term) can break into people's homes and rob them with unrivaled speed and efficiency- and uses the term "revolutionary technology". I don't know how it was done but upon reading of this alleged international crime organization it is inconceivable that they would not  rig some "insurance" for their ongoing scheme. They would not leave it up to the will of the people. There is far too much at stake.

Download Court Docs in 43 Trillion Dollar Law Suit

In my previous post. mentioned The 43 trillion dollar law suit against Banksters and household names from the Obama administration I have located  a link where one can download the court doc- a mere 912 pages long. HERE IT IS.  I am not sure that this link includes all 912 pages but its long enough.

A little glimpse at what is inside:

INCSR Reports. In its annual International Narcotics Control Strategy Reports
(INCSRs), which contain a country-by-country assessment of drug trafficking and money laundering risks, the U.S. State Department has consistently classified Mexico as a country of“primary” concern for money laundering, its highest risk rating.172. In 2002, the State Department described Mexico’s drug trafficking and money laundering risks as follows:
“Mexico faces a myriad of drug-related problems that include the production and transshipment of illicit drugs, money laundering, consumption and illicit firearms trafficking. ... The Government of Mexico’s (GOM) longstanding commitment to combat drug trafficking and related crimes resulted in tangible successes against the Arellano Felix Organization (AFO), the Carrillo Fuentes Organization (CFO), and the Gulf Cartel – widely considered the top three drug groups in the country. … Mexico remains a major supplier of heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana, and the transit
point for more than one half of the cocaine sold in the U.S. … The industrial-scale drug trade has transformed narcotrafficking into one of Mexico’s deadliest businesses. …These organizations have demonstrated blatant disregard for human life as the executions
of law enforcement personnel, government officials, and innocent bystanders have increased. … In recent years international money launderers have turned increasingly to Mexico for initial placement of drug proceeds into the global financial system.”173

President Obama is not on the list of defendants - although the doc does allege that Obama ratified the shell companies and borrowed money from the same to run his re-election campaign. Perhaps as with Fast and Furious- the president simply knew nothing about it.

Next ! - The Long Overdue Benghazigate Investigation

As anyone who follows this blog knows, I usually write about Maine "economic development" legislation but today justifies a departure from the norm. The election of Barack Obama and Angus King and the same balance of powers in Congress that has resulted in two year grid lock is stunning and discouraging, but still only a battle lost in a larger fight to preserve the American political philosophy.

The media played an essential role in the entrenching the current political elite, a role even more shocking than in the first Obama election. I am referring to the media cover up of Benghazigate, with the notable exception for Fox news which maintains a constant focus on the unraveling of the truth of what occurred in Benghazi on the night of September 11, 2012.

Unwittingly, the American pravda media and the Washington power elite may have handed the proponents of the American political philosophy a potential long awaited victory. Without the delayed telling of the truth about the events of that fateful night, Vice President Biden might never have implicated himself in the Benghazi cover up during the Biden-Ryan debate. That being the case, it changes the prospect of a post Benghazigate presidency from Biden to Boehner.

On the night that ObamaCare was passed in a single party vote, Speaker of the House, John Boehner made an impassioned speech imploring congress not to commit the deed . When the Supreme Court re-legislated ObamaCare, transforming it into ObamaTax. Speaker of the House Boehner made a stand for the complete repeal. The rewrite allowed the Supreme Court to declare  the constitutionality of ObamaTax as they justified their actions to themselves by declaring it now to be in the hands of the American voter, who apparently was momentarily swayed in their decision making process by the "presidential imagery" of Obama giving speeches promising, in response to Hurricane Sandy, "not to leave any one behind" (as he had done so willfully in Benghazi).

It was dumbfounding to watch as  even on Fox news, as the pundits blamed Romney for the media's failure to report a hugely important story. "If Romney had made it an issue the media would have had to report the story" Since when did the media follow a line of command headed up by politicians? The blame game has become contagious in the Obama era. The media is supposedly mature enough to be  responsible for its own actions and capable of acting independently of politicians but in the age of American pravda, if Romney had made Benghazi an issue the  media would likely blame Romney just as they did when Romney spoke out on Benghazi early on- claiming that Romney was "politicizing" Benghazi.

But by a dark twist of fate and the twisted trajectories of corrupt powers trying to mask their own faces, America has another chance to save herself by applying our constitutional power of impeachment. In another era Nixon was impeached ( more accurately he resigned rather than facing impeachment) for far less a cover up- one in which there were no murdered victims- which would have been thirty more in number had Ty Woods not gone against orders to rescue those thirty people, whom Obama as he watched via video with his power elite comrades would have callously allowed to die before going to bed so that he could wake up the next morning to fly off to another election campaign. This in my view is the clear portrait of a sociopath who are known for appearing "likable" to others but who do not really like other people, a character trait that I have heard told about Obama.

I posted a comment on Face book with the acknowledgement that making comparisons to Hitler make's many people get very uppity and so I do not do so lightly- but in this case it is called for. Hitler used the lure of "social benefit" programs to entice people, but I imagine that few understood that at the core of that was a genocidal maniac- also classifiable as a sociopath- also popular- giving lavish parties and enjoying the high life- like our president. Just today in the super market I saw our president's portrait on a pop culture magazine with the headline "12 things you don't know about me" ( #1 on that list should be "I am a sociopath') .

A woman responded to my post grateful that I had said what I said because her family lived through Nazi Germany and she had heard many stories about what went on during that time. She agreed with my insight about using "social benefit" programs as bait into something darkly diabolical, which brings us back to Benghazigate. Before the last election,I read all about Obama's past associations with communists, terrorists, radical anti-white racist organizations, Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, and so on but still the events in Benghazi shocked me. The military is a disciplined chain of command and Obama is the Commander in Chief. Obama was watching as the Embassy was under attack for nine hours and never issued the command to go in and help. Its that simple. If Obama issued a command, there is a record of that command but so far all we get is tired old rhetoric about "we are investigating what happened". Its about time someone else took over that investigation and there has been a bi-partisan call in Congress to do just that.

This link describes the Impeachment Process

This link is about a law suit naming numerous top level members of the Obama administration in an alleged money laundering scheme in which money that was claimed to be paid back to Tarp was channeled into the Obama 2012 re-election campaign fund. The accuser is the former Inspector General of the bailout program, Neil Barofsky,

This story is also co-incidentally or not connected to a recent murder of 2 children f a CNBC CEO that occured one day after a story on this lawsuit was aired.

This is an even more detailed story about the lawsuit which goes after a global network of crime and corruption at the highest levels.

Title 30-A of the Maine Statutes Governing Municpalities and Counties

Title 30-A is likely the statute that describes the process whereby the inhabitants of the municipality can amend their charter. I haven't had time to examine this closely yet. Title 30-A states that the voters can petition the officers but in the cases of the MRRA and Loring -chartered as municipal corporations ( local governance) that are "instrumentalites of the state( governed by and for the purposes of state government). the legislature provided that the local government would be governed by an unelected board appointed by the state. At first glance these would be "the officers" but it requires more than a first glance to figure out the truth. A municipal corporations serving as an "instrumentality of the state" is itself a contradiction in terms, while the legislature is prohibited by Article IV Part Third, Section 14 of the Maine State constitution  from chartering corporations by special act of legislation to serve state purposes- the over use by our legislatureof the conclusory assertion "This is an essential government function" , found throughout the massive network of corporate instrumentalities of the state chartered by the same, aside. If the intent of the constitution was to allow a network of economic development corporations serving as "instrumentalities of the state", that intent would hardly be served by prohibiting the legislature from chartering corporations by special act of legislation with an exception for "municipal purposes".

I haven't had time to explore Title 30 and so I am just posting this to bring it to my readers attention. Following is a quote from Title 30 -A.
Title 30-A: MUNICIPALITIES AND COUNTIES HEADING: PL 1987, C. 737, PT. A, §2 (NEW) Part 2: MUNICIPALITIES HEADING: PL 1987, C. 737, PT. A, §2 (NEW) Subpart


2. Petition by voters. On the written petition of a number of voters equal to at least 20% of the number of votes cast in the municipality at the last gubernatorial election, but in no case less than 10, the municipal officers, by order, shall provide for the establishment of a charter commission for the revision of the municipal charter or the preparation of a new municipal charter as provided in this chapter. [ 1987, c. 737, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1987, c. 737, Pt. C, §106 (NEW); 1989, c. 6, (AMD); 1989, c. 9, §2 (AMD); 1989, c. 104, Pt. C, §§8, 10 (AMD) .]

 3. Petition procedure.The following procedure shall be used in the alternative method set out in subsection 2. A. Any 5 voters of the municipality may file an affidavit with the municipal clerk stating:
(1) That the 5 voters will constitute the petitioners' committee;
(2) The names and addresses of the 5 voters;
(3) The address to which all notices to the committee are to be sent; and
(4) That the 5 voters will circulate the petition and file it in proper form.

The petitioners' committee may designate additional voters of the municipality, who are not members of the committee, to circulate the petition.

Promptly after the affidavit is filed, the clerk shall issue petition blanks to the committee. [1987, c. 737, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1987, c. 737, Pt. C, §106 (NEW); 1989, c. 6, (AMD); 1989, c. 9, §2 (AMD); 1989, c. 104, Pt. C, §§8, 10 (AMD).]

B. The municipal clerk shall prepare the petition forms at the municipality's expense. The petition forms shall be printed on paper of uniform size and may consist of as many individual sheets as are reasonably necessary. (1) Petition forms shall carry the following legend in bold lettering at the top of the face of each form. "Municipality of ...."
All of which begs the question: How can there be voters when there are no elections?

Further exploratory research reveals that at the same time the Home Rule Provisions were added to the statutes so was a new form of government called the "quasi-municipality" purportedly formed so that there could be utility districts- as if without such a new form of government individual municipalities would have no means to collaborate for mutual benefit. The quasi-municipality combines areas in independent municipalities forming an overlord municipality  "to deliver public services" , to put it in very general and highly interpretive terms that can be very useful for the expansion of Maine State Inc. However as clever as this new linguistic creation may be- it still can't make the constitution grant an exception to the  prohibition against chartering corporations by special act of legislation for "quasi municipal " purposes. The word "quasi" means "as if it were" but "as if" is not interchangeable with "is". The legislature is caught in the act of creating a loophole for the expansion of Maine State Inc even as it performs it's constitutional duty to protect the sovereignty of local government as voted by the will of the people.

 I came upon this statute legitimizing a new form of government in search of the provision for establishing the officers of a municipal corporations. I am still searching for that, but on the up side I found

Chapter 111: HOME RULE HEADING: PL 1987, C. 737, PT. A, §2 (NEW)

§2108. Judicial review

it is beyond the scope of the current post to go into detail on this statute but the following paragraph gives some hope if our court system functions as it should and if the people would realize that there is need to take action to preserve our local sovereignty.
4. Resubmission upon judicial invalidation for procedural error.  If the court finds that the procedures under which any charter was adopted, revised, modified or amended are invalid, the Superior Court, on its own motion or the motion of any party, may order the resubmission of the charter adoption, revision, modification or amendment to the voters. This order shall require only the minimum procedures on resubmission to the voters that are necessary to cure the material and substantial errors or omissions. The Superior Court may also recommend or order other curative procedures to provide for valid charter adoption, revision, modification or amendment.

"Inhabitants of the Municipality" ARISE!

This is a link to a current discussion on As Maine Goes about the MRRA, which represents the current "sate of the  art" of the power of government that the legislature granted unto itself when they chartered The Maine Development Foundation - a non-profit corporation assigned with the elite privilege and authority  of managing the economy of the entire state.

added later This is a link to another discussion about the MRRA on As Maine Goes

This was an unconstitutional grab of power by the state government and once having transcended their oaths to that dusty old piece of paper that represents the will of the people of this state- other wise known as the Maine State Constitution- they certainly had no cause to get the consent of the governed as they instituted the process of fundamentally transforming the State of Maine into a corporation that controls the means of production through it's multifarious funds found throughout Maine State Inc's corporate network.

The meaningful and equivalent language for these funds is "capital", the accumulation and concentration of capital in the hands of Maine State Inc, which then redistributes the accumulated capital to its "targeted sector" and lets the "un-targeted sector" foot the bill all in the name of the "public benefit" as defined by the Lords of our Legislature, who with the crowning triumph of the statute chartering the Maine Development Foundation have established that statutory law supersedes the Maine State Constitution ( representing the will of the people if not "the public benefit" as so deemed by our elected nobility class - here to fore to be known as The Lords of the Legislature)

The primary newest insight in the As Maine Goes thread is that when the federal government  transferred the land of the Brunswick Navel Air Station to Maine State Inc, the towns from which the land was originally taken could have presented their own proposals. I have no idea if the towns ever organized themselves enough to compete with the behemoth Maine State Inc- which I liken to the Muslim Brotherhood in the organizational strength and their concentrated capitalization. Maine State Inc is an unconstitutional corporate state which has grown to monstrous proportions and if you read the concoction which is the charter for this unconstitutional corporation,- The MRRA  it is revealed  that in its crowing jewel of Maine State Inc has granted unto itself to right to acquire anyone's property to use for the purposes of "economic development"- were it not for the fact that of the obstacle of a charter which is a concoction of ambiguous legal authority.

Note added later. To my knowledge to date, There are three such state owned and controlled economic development "municipal corporations" in Maine- The Loring Development, The Washington County Development Authority, and the MRRA.The Loring Development was the first and found under Title 10 of the statutes, The other two are appendages to Title 5 §13083, which is a phantom chapter which has been repealed and all data about that chapter extracted from the Maine State Website that lists all the statures on October 6 2012, after the publication of this post

The Maine State Constitution prohibits the legislature from chartering the corporate state but there has been no authority enforcing the Maine state constitution for decades on end. Since the culture in Augusta is accepting that statutory law supersedes the constitution- the change can only be initiated from the people themselves. In my view the inhabitants of the municipality known as the MRRA who have a unique opportunity to turn the tide in the other direction and dethrone the legislature as the all powerful rule of law in the State of Maine and restore our beautiful state constitution to its rightful place- A what a powerful story that would make! Think of the movie rights if that's what it takes to get the inhabitants of the MRRA municipality motivated!

Maine state Inc is a corporation that has accumulated capital- not through earned profits - but from state and federal taxpayers and non-profit gift giving. As a corporation it is far larger than any municipal corporation can be. If allowed to continue its gowth unopposed it will eventually gobble up all local authority as the case of the MRRA establishes in that Maine State inc has usurped the power that constitutionally belongs to "the inhabitants of the municipality" Arise Inhabitants of the Municipality! Arise!

The Maine Deveopment Foundation - Laying the Foundation for the Corporate State

               Tweet This

The charter for the Maine Development Foundation, from which the quotes in this post were taken.- Signed into law by Governor Longley- A former democrat who ran as an Independent

This is a list I maintain of legislative related links and "economic development" statutes, the most of which have come about as a result of the codification of said government function in the charter for the Maine Development Foundation.

When American colonists declared independence from England in 1776, they also freed themselves from control by English corporations that extracted their wealth and dominated trade. After fighting a revolution to end this exploitation, our country's founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society. Our Hidden History of Corporations in the United States on

.The charter for the Maine Development Foundation begins with these words:

The10 §915. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENThe State of Maine has long had serious conditions of unemployment, underemployment, low per capital income and resource underutilization which cause substantial hardships to many individuals and families, impede the economic and physical development of various regions of the State, and adversely affect the general welfare and prosperity of the State. [1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).]

There is a need to establish a new basis for a creative partnership of the private and public sectors for economic development, a partnership which can capitalize on the interests, resources and efforts of each sector,
but which does not compromise the public interest or the profit motive.The state's solitary burden to provide for development should lessen through involving the private sector in a leadership role. In so stating that 1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).
The legislature justifies the charter for a state economic development corporation with a claim that the state has a solitary burden to provide for economic development. This disregards the constitutional amendments of 1969 Home Rule and 1962 Article IX Section 8  Taxation which establishes equal taxation and where section 2 of the Home Rule Amendment was originally located. Section two grants municilpalities limited authority to use general obligation bonds for industrial development. Not only did the state not have a solitary burden but in fact the state did not have the constitutional authority to use taxation or bonds for economic development, according to Marshal J Tinkle writing in The Maine Constitution: A Reference Guide:1

"As noted in the literature, the amendment ( Home Rule , Section 2 ) makes it clear that general obligations may now be used to assist private industry for certain purposes" .....this section applies only to general obligations of municipalities and not to forms of financing that do not create municipal debt or liability " The Maine Constitution: A Reference manual by Marshall J Tinkle  
The alleged solitary burden is then contradicted by saying the state will work with the private sector, Since economic development can take place within the private sector it is not so solitary a burden after all. The state then declares that the private sector will take the leadership role, which if true would mean that the state would not interfere with the free enterprise system by centrally managing it, since that gives the state and not the private sector the leadership role. However, the state is ostensibly using “private sector” to mean partnership with private special interests and not the entirety of the private sector. When the state grants special private interests a leadership role, the legislature then serves a private special interest faction and ceases to be the public servant as a public servant must serve the common good, which is not to be construed as the same as “public benefit” A common good benefits all in common, where as the term “public benefit” has been stretched to mean whatever the powers that be want it to mean as we saw in Kelo vs New London decision by the United States Supreme Court. If one were to consider legislation developed in the wake of the chartering of the Maine Development Foundation, and ask whose interest is the legislature serving, it is demonstrable that the legislature serves the legal and economic interests of private special interests and uses the taxpayers money as a fund of other peoples money made exclusively available to private special interests.
The chartering the Maine Development Foundation violated Article IV Part Third Section 14 of the Maine State Constitution and laid the foundation for what was to become a rapidly expanding network of state corporations serving as “instrumentalities of the state”, a purpose forbidden by section 14 pursuant to the exclusion only for municipal purposes. An “instrumentality of the state” serves state purposes. The other exception is if the object of the corporation cannot be done another way. The object of the corporation is economic development which can be done another way. Economic development can be done in the private sector. One could argue that the object is the central management of the economy but central management is a state purpose. The intent of Article IV Part Third Section Eight ,when the exception for municipal corporations is factored in, is to prohibit chartering corporations for state purposes. This is my layman's interpretation but it seems patently clear and not at all ambiguous. I remind the reader that in 1951, the Opinion of the Justices had to omit all consideration of the exemption for municipal purposes in order to claim that the Article IV Part Third Section 14 is ambiguous and that is because if one incorporates the exception for municipal purposes, there is no ambiguity.

Section 14.  Corporations, formed under general laws.  Corporations shall be formed under general laws, and shall not be created by special Acts of the Legislature, except for municipal purposes, and in cases where the objects of the corporation cannot otherwise be attained; and, however formed, they shall forever be subject to the general laws of the State.

There after the Maine legislature declared each state corporation chartered by special act of legislation to be “an essential government function” and in so doing themselves admit that central management of the economy is a state purpose- as by “government function” the meaning is clearly a state government function. Thus the Maine state legislature fundamentally transformed the purpose of government expressed in the preamble to the Maine State constitution:


Objects of government.  We the people of Maine, in order to establish justice, insure tranquility, provide for our mutual defense, promote our common welfare, and secure to ourselves and our posterity the blessings of liberty, acknowledging with grateful hearts the goodness of the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe in affording us an opportunity, so favorable to the design; and, imploring God's aid and direction in its accomplishment, do agree to form ourselves into a free and independent State, by the style and title of the State of Maine and do ordain and establish the following Constitution for the government of the same.

Some will argue that what the legislature deems to be "the public benefit" is the same as the "common welfare" Others will not agree that the state's management of the economy serves everyone's interest, The term "common' means shared by all but while all Maine taxpayers share in the costs created by the state's economic development policies all do not share in the benefits..If one is to argue the benefits are in the trickle down effect in which all share then all business of all sizes are contributing to that trickle down effect and all business should be governed by general laws as provided in Article IV Part Third Section 13 of the Maine Constitution. The reasoning behind the trickle down effect is familial to the Marxist reasoning which concludes that we are all a product of our society, resulting in the further conclusion that all are property of society. We are all the means of production collectively owned by society and what ever we produce belongs not to us but to the collective society. Clearly such a line of reasoning is not consistent with a political philosophy founded on protection of individual rights.

Much of the charter for the Maine Development Foundation concerns defining who will be the privileged elite that shapes the Maine economy, culture and society, to their preferences. Although this is not a nobility transferred by blood relationships, which is prohibited by the Maine constitution, it is an overlord society with similarities to nobility. In this case, as clearly stated in the charter, it is corporate nobility granted special rights by a legislature acting more like lords than a body with a sworn allegiance to uphold the constitution. The chosen ones are granted statutory authority to impose their values and philosophy over the rest of society in the name of the "public benefit" which is not defined by the public but by an elite bureaucracy. According to Maine statutes, this ruling class knows what is best for everyone and in addition to that, they are secular saints. This arbitrary granting of special powers to special interests in the name of the "public benefit" reduces the Maine State constitution to partisan politics. Arguable opinions about "public benefit" and the characterization of the ruling elite belong in the political arena and should never be codified into law.

The political philosophy that uses as its premise that "public benefit" and "profit motive" are mutually compatible is as fanciful as Marx's projection that the state will evolve until it "withers away". To add to this preposterous delusion, the paragraph concludes by saying that the state will ease its "solitary burden" of managing the economy by partnering with special interests in the private sector. This is a complete occlusion of the references to "God's aid and direction" as found in the Maine Constitution. The secular world view posits man as the highest intelligence and power, occluding the existence of God as a natural, mysterious and higher wisdom than that of mortals. The Maine constitution acknowledges God's direction and so God's hand is in the works and the burden is never solitary.

The next paragraph in the charter deems that the newly formed government function is an "essential government function" language found repeated in every state chartered corporation and used to justify the expansion of government. However if it were an essential government function, one must ask how did Maine manage for over one hundred and fifty years without it ? In that simple seemingly throw away statement, the legislature transformed a free enterprise capitalist system into a state capitalist system without ever asking for consent from the governed. The Maine Development Foundation is a "qausi" - a political device instrumental in merging formerly three distinct economic sectors - private, non-profit, and government into one fluid instrumentality of the state, which has been transformed into a public-private partnership.

For comparison's sake, observe how fluidly the rhetoric establishing the Maine Development Corporation merges into the rhetoric of the Constitution of the People's Republic of China :
The Maine Development Foundation is hereby established to foster, support and assist economic growth and revitalization in Maine. The foundation shall carry out its purposes in complement to and in coordination with the economic development activities of the private sector, community and regional agencies and State Government. [1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).]
The foundation shall exist as a not-for-profit corporation with a public purpose, and the exercise by the foundation of the powers conferred by this chapter shall be
 deemed and held to be an essential governmental function.[1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).]
1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).

Property Rights Law of the Peopl'es Republic of China 2007
During the primary stage of socialism, the State shall adhere to the basic economic system, with public ownership playing a dominant role and diverse forms of ownership developing side by side.
The State shall consolidate and develop unswervingly the public sector of the economy and at the same time encourage, support and guide the development of the non-public sectors of the economy.
The State implements the socialist market economy, ensuring equal legal status and right for development of all market players.

3.  Added in 1987 To the charter for the Maine Development Foundation

It is important to note that the Maine Development Foundation includes within its charter authorization to accepts gifts through the Governor This is a doorway for money to buy undue influence and favors in politics:


The State of Maine, through the Governor, may accept donations, bequests, devises, grants or other interests of any nature on behalf of the foundation and transfer such funds, property or other interests to the foundation. [1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).]
1977, c. 548, §1 (NEW).
