RE: Noel J. Francisco

Solicitor General of The United States
Case Management Section
(202) 514-2217

Dear Mr. Francisco:

WE need the direct aid of the Solicitor General of The United States to submit an Amicus Curiae Brief on behalf of The United States for certain serious defects to be clarified on the DACA Case before the Supreme Court submitted on October 2nd, 2019, and scheduled to be hear on November 12.  The Brief is in two parts:

1.  That the Court legally define and defend the Inviolable Sovereignty (in its meaning of Heritage and Military Sovereignty from its inception) of the European American United States (and its sheltered minority citizens taken in from around the world,) in striking down the condoned illegal foreign overrun being argued for.

2.  To legally define and clarify the wording of the 14th Amendment Section 1: Rights to U.S. American Citizenship clause that: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, (and Subject To The Jurisdiction Of;) are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.  To specifically exclude children born in the United States to illegal immigrants (in argument that those children are subject to the Jurisdictions of the Foreign Countries of their Illegally Arrived Parents).

The United States is required to protect each State from invasion under: Article IV, Section 4 of the U. S. Constitution. "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence."  Federal invader laws that brought the illegals to America and gave them benefits is treason. Article III, Section 3, prohibits giving aid and comfort to enemies of the United States. They are enemies of our Sovereign Integrity, if not outright in open hostility.

Please acknowledge your Justice Department Representation Receipt of our Amicus Curiae Brief submitted to the DACA CASE before The U.S. Supreme Court.

Thank you so very much for your kind assistance.

Process of Qualifications for United States Citizenship

In addition to waiting three or five years after getting your green card (unless qualifying on military service), you must also satisfy the following requirements:

You must be at least 18 years old.

You must not have taken any trips of six months or longer outside of the United States during the three- or five-year wait period.

You must have been a resident of the state where you plan to apply for citizenship for at least three months.

You must have “good moral character,” broadly defined as character that measures up to the standards of average citizens in your community. More specifically, however, it means you did not have certain types of crimes — such as murder, illegal gambling, or intentionally lying to the U.S. government in order to gain immigration benefits — on your record at any time before filing, and you did not lie during your naturalization interview. Whether an applicant meets this requirement is decided by the government on a case-by-case basis.

You must pass a two-part naturalization test: the first is an English language test (covering reading, writing, and speaking skills) and the second a Civics Test (covering knowledge of U.S. history and government).

You must be willing to serve in the U.S. military or perform civilian service for the United States if called upon to do so.

You must register with the Selective Service System if you are male and have lived in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25.

You must be willing to defend the U.S. Constitution.

Individuals who want to become immigrants (permanent residents) through their qualified family member, a job offer or employment, or a special category will generally be classified in categories based on a preference system. With a few exceptions (such as for immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen who are given the highest immigration priority, Congress has set a finite number of visas that can be used each year for each category of immigrants.  In general, to meet the requirements for permanent residence in the United States, you must:

1.  Be eligible for one of the immigrant categories established in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA),
2.  Have a qualifying immigrant petition filed and approved for you (with a few exceptions),
3.  Have an immigrant visa immediately available,
4.  and Be admissible to the United States.

Brief for the behalf of The United States on Petition for a Writ of Original Jurisdiction

Regarding the phrasing: "and subject to the jurisdiction of," in the wording of Section I of the 14th Amendment that, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside;” and in stating that it was never intended to mean for the inclusion of the children of Illegal Aliens to automatically become Citizens of The United States and of the State wherein they reside; that has everything to do with protecting our American European Sovereignty; which by the way is still "In Effect" as of this date in our Country's Reckoning.  But, to speak for it, the nature of our Inherent Sovereignty, to state that America is a European Nation, by Origin of its Founders, and by the Framers To its United States Constitution and Bill of Rights established Under the Providence of The Creator; and that is held together by our Sustaining Will as a People upon God’s Earth in Vested Heritage by our Ideology of Faith, Moral Foundation, Language, Culture, Customs, Laws, and Ways of Life, Economically and Socially. That cannot ever be usurped.

This Declaration of Sovereignty and of our Sovereign Intent needs to be firmly resolved by The Congress of The United States at this time and if necessary clarified by Constitutional Amendment, or to be Ruled On by The United States Supreme Court in timely legal adjudication; and having nothing to do with the derogations of White Nationalism, or White Supremacy, or with any notion of Racial or Ethnic Discrimination and Prejudice; but with the meaning of the American Sovereign in a Firm Military Posture of Self-Determination of Government Unto Ourselves; in the same light as we conceive of the people of Japan, and China, to be Sovereign.

We are being overrun and overtaken at this time by a Civil War Coalition of Multi-Foreign Interests assuming Adverse Possession under the Inclusion Ideology of the 15th Amendment as applied under the Non-Discriminating Equal Citizenship Clause established by the Civil Rights Act.  The Deep State Conspiracy among the Third World Liberal Democrats being advocated is to Destroy and Replace the White Europeans altogether with Alien Peoples.  The problem with surrendering to that concept being, that it will not be our country, laws, and military to rule over any longer; and to be given over into the hands and agendas of Foreign Peoples.  And To The Point: let us start staging a firm resistance to this Foreign Invasion Oppression under the Public Defense Manifest of the Declaration of Independence.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation….

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness… it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.****

The deep American roots of white supremacy - CNN

If there is a great American novel, one that is thought to define the American sensibility, it is probably "The Great Gatsby," F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece. In its opening pages, one of the characters, Tom Buchanan, talks about "a fine book" titled "The Rise of the Colored Empires," by a man named Goddard.

"The idea," Tom explains, "is if we don't look out the white race will be -- will be utterly submerged. It's all scientific stuff; it's been proved."

The fact that these views are so deep-seated, subconsciously part of the modern psyche, is perhaps why we have been unable to see the growing danger in our midst. The number of white militants has grown; they have attacked more often and with greater brutality. And yet the authorities have always seemed to be surprised and unprepared, perhaps unable to fully internalize the nature of this ideology and its violent ambitions.

It is important to understand, as America and the Western world become more mixed, multicultural and multiracial, the backlash will grow. White supremacists want to do more than just protest. They make this clear in their internal communications. And they are planning for it every day. Let's hope we can all recognize this danger before they succeed.

What the American Islamic/Mulatto/Third-World People of Color Orientation, Male and Female, needs to do here, in the American fashion of a War Conference, is to cease and desist with the idea that the White Race here in America stands to be defeated, and for what intent to be retaliated against for alleged past slavery and discriminating attitudes against their skin color by the White Race in not wishing to be Inter-Married into by the Negro Race of the Mulattoes. The White People are not to be bullied and goaded along any further to accept the idea of their Inter-Racial Breeding Genocide.  And who also need and require the understanding of their “Privacy” regarding the affairs of the White Caucasian Race to be respected to their social arrangements in desiring to be among their own kind at certain events and settings; and as to whom, the White Race, are no longer to be tormented in being “Villainized” and “Ridiculed” by the Liberal Media as Scapegoats for everything that they, the Negroes, conceive to be wrong with their lives here in the Negroes Brain Washed Propaganda to Defeat the White Race in Take-Over Domination of The United States.  And for People of Color to reason, among themselves, that their lives are unhappy here because of the unfortunate nature of their existence; that does not for them, have to be unfortunate, in that sense of the meaning, if they would Adopt the Attitude of recognizing themselves to be a "Separate Entity" from both the Black Negro Race, and the White Caucasian Race; and To Procreate, as a Matter Of Principle, Conscience, and Moral Concern, Within Their Own Kind.

This letter from Mr. Koniz is at the heart of the USA immigration problem.  Does the 14th Amendment allow the offspring of illegal immigrants who are born in the USA to become citizens at birth in the USA?  The Supreme Court has not ruled on what the term "subject to the jurisdiction of" actually means.   Is an illegal immigrant under the jurisdiction of the country of origin or of the USA?  and is the influx of illegal immigrants considered to be an invasion that needs federal protection as per Article IV, Section 4? 

Will SCOTUS rule on these issues now?

Immigration and Nationality Act | USCIS United States Citizenship and Immigration Services

In The Supreme Court Of The United States - Transcript: 18-587 - Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of Univ. of Cal. - 11/12/19

Here are some pertinent discussions from the Summation of the November 12th's, 2019 Supreme Court DACA Hearing on "boilerplate law" regarding INA/USCIS.

That was left on the wording of "Subject To Review" in arguing "Immigration Law" v. "Executive Order" that The U.S. Supreme Court ruling is asked to resolve.

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) was enacted in 1952. The INA collected many provisions and reorganized the structure of immigration law. ... The U.S. Code is a collection of all the laws of the United States. Title 8 of the U.S. Code covers "Aliens and Nationality."                                                                                                            Wikipedia

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 also known as the Hart–Celler Act, is a federal law passed by the 89th United States Congress and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law abolished the National Origins Formula, which had been the basis of U.S. immigration policy since the 1920s. 

The National Origins Formula was an American system of immigration quotas, used between 1921 and 1965, which restricted immigration on the basis of existing proportions of the population. It aimed to reduce the overall number of unskilled immigrants (especially from Southern Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia), and to prevent immigration from changing the ethnic distribution of the largely Protestant Northwestern European-descended United States population.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that administers the country's naturalization and immigration system. It is a successor to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), which was dissolved by the Homeland Security Act of  2002 and replaced by three components within the DHS: USCIS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

WE are dealing with a War Footing of Life and Death as it is in the Real World in our time ... and the fate of Nations ... and Populations, to resolve: who the Sovereign is here in the United States.  Let us get to the heart of what it is that is troubling us, and most importantly, to correct what the problems are, if WE can.

That needs a mature hand, reasoning from strength, and spelled out as: the Collective Mind and Will of the People Set To A Determined Purpose To Accomplish.

The Native Americans name the one chosen to speak for the Collective Mind: "Bad Hands."  The one elected by us at this hour is our President Donald J. Trump.

Our Nation of The United States is not very old and could very easily be torn asunder if cool and collected rational minds do not take authoritative control of it now.

What needs to happen here as a Country is to form an Enlightened Plan for Public Media Programming along a "Social Platform of Working Things Out Together."

All Americans need to feel content with the way things are; and WE need to be educating on resolving the conflicts preventing our becoming what WE need to be.

WE have in mind a Great Gathering of Professional Intelligent Minds to oversee the Moral Foundation of Our Nation Under God based to a Parens Patriae Doctrine.

The conservative positions of the Fox News Channel is where WE need to be. Mother Russia is our White Race European-American Ally in securing America's A-Bombs and the Threat of Nuclear War from a Hostile Forces Take-Over of Our Democratic Country by an Overpopulation Domination of Militant Muslim - Anti-White - American Hating - Third World Parties, and otherwise from Foreign Invasion Overrun Antithetical to Our U.S. American and NATO Alliances Interests, and to the Interests of Russia; who are being Voted Into Office outright, or by proxy, on Majority Rule of the Democratic Party Third-World/People of Color Hegemony.

Don't get on the wrong side of this Civil War. The reasoning here is Not to do with Racial Inequality and Prejudice; but about the Unconditional Declaration of Our United States American Sovereignty, long vested from the conception of Our European Nation in Heritage; of the Self-Determination of a People to Govern Over Themselves; and depending to Our Ability "To Exit" from the Mis-Wording of Our Civil Right Contract with the Minority Populations, in allowing Foreign Peoples, and their Alien Ideologies, Cultures, and Values, to Replace Us in hostile take-over to the Ambitions of Our Government and the utilization of Our Nation's Military.

                                     Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 also known as the Hart–Celler Act, is a federal law passed by the 89th United States Congress and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law abolished the National Origins Formula, which had been the basis of U.S. immigration policy since the 1920s. The act removed de facto discrimination against Southern and Eastern Europeans, Asians, and other non-Northwestern European ethnic groups from American immigration policy.

Largely to restrict immigration from Asia, Southern Europe, and Eastern Europe, the Immigration Act of 1924 had permanently established the National Origins Formula as the basis of U.S. immigration policy. By limiting immigration of non-Northern Europeans, according to the U.S. Department of State Office of the Historian the purpose of the 1924 act was "to preserve the ideal of American [Northwestern European] homogeneity". During the 1960s, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, the National Origins Formula increasingly came under attack for being racially discriminatory. With the support of the Johnson administration, Senator Philip Hart and Congressman Emanuel Celler introduced a bill to repeal the formula. The bill received wide support from both northern Democratic and Republican members of Congress, but strong opposition from Southern Democrats who viewed it as a threat to white-majority demographics in the United States. Johnson signed the Hart–Celler Act into law on October 3, 1965. In opening entry to the U.S. to immigrants other than Northwestern European and Germanic groups, the act would significantly alter immigration demographics in the U.S. Some sources assert that this alteration was intentional, others assert that it was unintentional.

The Hart–Celler Act created a seven-category preference system that gives priority to relatives of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents, as well as to professionals and other individuals with specialized skills. The act maintained per-country and total immigration limits, but included a provision exempting immediate relatives of U.S. citizens from numerical restrictions. The act also set a numerical limit on immigration from the Western Hemisphere for the first time in U.S. history. Though proponents of the bill had argued that it would not have a major effect on the total level of immigration or the demographic mix of the United States, the act greatly increased the total number of immigrants coming to the United States, as well as the share of immigrants coming to the United States from Asia and Africa.                                                    … Wikipedia


A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

The term "false flag" originally referred to pirate ships that flew flags of countries as a disguise to prevent their victims from fleeing or preparing for battle. Sometimes the flag would remain and the blame for the attack be laid incorrectly on another country. The term today extends beyond naval encounters to include: countries that organize attacks on themselves and make the attacks appear to be by enemy nations or terrorists, thus giving the nation that was supposedly attacked a pretext for domestic repression and foreign military aggression.

Operations carried out during peacetime by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.   Wikipedia

This (case) is especially important to the Conscience of our Nation as it concerns and affects our returning from war Military Combat Veterans who are being systematically hewn-down by Psychiatric Labeling and Disabling Sedation Treatment by the V.A. to be left homeless in the streets to suicide at the rate of 22 a day.

The bigger picture at stake here is American Sovereignty (not to be confused with the epithet "White Supremacy,") but the Sovereignty of the American People to their Self-Determination in Established Governing Over Ourselves, as it is described to exist in Longstanding Vested Heritage; as opposed to the Open Boarders Socialized Globalization Idea that would overrun and overthrow the American United States as it is understood in favor of a Free-For-All of Foreign Occupation.

In that regard, WE have serious issues to point-out concerning the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 14th Amendments; and the clause inherent with the 5th and 14th Amendments: "nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;" to the point made that the sanctity of life and liberty "Are Rights."

The Cause of Action being: that Mental Hygiene Law is conducted under 7th Amendment Medical Civil Law in that no crime has been committed; yet tit is depriving individuals of their life and liberty nonetheless; and more seriously, to be allowed to force them into Disabling Chemical Sedation, Electro-Shock, and Surgical Lobotomy Treatment, and to be depriving individuals of their vitality, of their physical well-being, and their stature of mental competency, to then not be able to function normally in society, without the safeguards accorded to the accused under the penal laws; and to the U.S. Supreme Court Appeal that these Strong Tranquilizer Chemicals are Excruciating To Endure and Suicidally Induce the Mental Illnesses that they are advertised to alleviate; and quite deadly in the hands of Fascist Heroin Mafia Regimes (to be thought of in ways of Silencing Dissent in the former Communist Soviet Union), or in the hands of Corrupt Political, Medical, Pharmaceutical Conspiracy, or Foreign Subversive Element's motives, against our American Soldiers, To Weaponize Psychiatric Diagnosis Labeling and Treatment. 

And of what Psychiatric Labeling, Treatment, and History Of, that then leaves the hapless individuals who are being negatively affected without Due Process Rights, with the life-long stigma of "Back Ground Checks;" of serious consequence for The 2nd Amendment Gun Licensing, FAA and other types of Professional Licensing, and Employment; as to what the Legal Defense Rights are that the Psychiatrically Accused have under Due Process Rights Guarantees of the 14th Amendment to Defend Themselves with; as to what the Legal Grounds are that constitutes a Valid Mental Illness Condition to have to be reported about, (and most importantly to have to endure the social stigma of,) and what the Legal Grounds are that the State can Force Disabling Treatment onto anyone without their consent?

There is also a Statute of Limitations question here to be answered for here; as to why if there is a Statute of Limitations for various crimes; that the records of such crimes (and psychiatric histories) endure on forever to answer for ... "have you ever?" To ask then, why are there not Statutes of Limitations for such records?)

It all does not express to be "In The American Way" as our Framers intended, of our standards of justice rooted in the tradition and conscience of our people.

We will need at least $100,000.00 to take this through Federal Court and perhaps to The U.S. Supreme Court for our suit In Equity, and Law, against The Veterans Administration; in "Equity" to compel the V.A. into a "Benign Setting" of Bed Rest "Convalescence" (replacing the negative terminology conveyed by the labeling of "Psychiatric Wards" in Government Malfeasance for the Treatment of Combat Stress Fatigue related maladies as casualties of War, (and No War Is Ever Fought Without Trauma and Fatigue, of the sheer Horrors of War to endure, of the Bloodshed, and Kill and Be Killed Real Life Trauma, and to have to endure the heartache and the torment of Empathy Felt for Slain and Wounded Comrades, and to be faced with the torment of Remorse and Guilt over the lives taken, and in all regards for the sheer mental and physical exhaustion of what it means to fight a war in the day-in and day-out of it); "To Forbid" the V.A.'s/Pharmaceutical Industry's use of Strong Psychotropic Tranquilizers Sedation for overall restraining purposes, (except in the temporary emergency settings in Disruptive Behavior of being a Threat to Oneself or Others); and as well To Compel the V.A. to Provide General Legal Counsel for these matters, and for any "Labeling of a Psychiatric Illness" upon anyone; and for these Veterans to then be able to defend themselves against any V.A. Medical and Administrative Malfeasances; and for V.A. Legal Counsel to be provided to Veterans for the Recovery of Damages from the V.A.’s Neglect and Medical Malpractice. The "Case at Law" here in such regard having to do with the prosecution and conviction of V.A. Administrative and Medical Staff for their parts, overtly, or in Cover-Up, of the Mass-Murder in Depraved Indifference of our Nation’s Veterans by Suicide and Neglect; and for the callous suffering inflicted by the V.A.'s Psychiatric Labeling and Mis-Treatment in Injuries to our Veterans.

It is a huge toll of Veterans Lives being sacrificed and lost to this alien and socially repugnant realm of Psychiatric Labeling and Treatment. If WE have to take this to The United States Supreme Court, WE Will, in a concerned Stance as a United Veterans Organization in judgment against the Veterans Administration to correct the injustice of the tragic Veterans Psychiatric Suicide Crisis being generated by V.A. Psychiatric Labeling and Disabling Treatment in depriving each of them of their Vigor and Mental Competency; "Without Due Process of Law;" (in the meaning of our Veterans Having No Defense to it); that no one in the Veterans Administration seems to care to want to do anything about. The lawyers WE have lined up can't be expected to do the work for nothing.  Although that it would not hurt the lawyers of this Nation any To Take an Active Interest in their country To Settle this Misconduct of V.A. Betrayal and to Volunteer their Patriotic Services.

One of the main obstacles to resolving this Crisis has been the Medical Industry’s Corrupt Creation of a Captive Mental Health/Pharmacy Market being generated by Drug Promotion Pay-Out’s to the V.A.’s Medical/Administrative Staff combined with Pharmaceutical Campaign Contributions to Federal Legislators; being bolstered by Subversive Media Propaganda to prey on the Public’s Hysteria of our Combat Veterans being Homicidal and needing to be kept on their "Meds". 

"It's illegal to give kickbacks to doctors to prescribe drugs, but it is legal to give money to doctors to help promote their drugs. Some corrupt doctors make tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars a year beyond their normal practice just for working with the industry." The Sunshine Act, requires all pharmaceutical and medical device companies to publicly report payments to doctors of more than $10.  These Doctors are guilty of Depraved Indifference Mass-Murder awaiting Intervention (as with the case of the Criminally Corrupt Opioid Pushing Doctors).  This is a V.A. War Confrontation that Requires Immediate National Resolution.

Remember, these are our Nation's Military Veterans, and the backbone of our Nation's Defenses, who are being Suicidally Terminated by the V.A.'s Malfeasance.

One veteran's life lost to suicide is one too many.

Dear Ms. Sharon Bove, Administrative Assistant:
To:  UNIVERSITY OF NORTH FLORDA President David Szymanski:
From:  Journalist Gary L. Koniz – August 23, 2019

I want to relate to you how much I appreciated your courtesy in polite attention to my briefing conference on resolving the dire subject of Student Loan Debt totaling now at 1.5 Trillion on the average of $47,671 per household with $166 billion in loans presently in default and being managed by private collection agencies; and for forwarding this information along with my presentation on the Full Faith Fiat Money Bill on to the University of North Florida President Mr. David Szymanski to help reduce our Public Education Universities Student Loan Tuition Costs.

To provide you with some background information about my knowledge on this subject of Student Loan Debt; I applied to and was hired with a Federal Security Clearance in June of 2016 by General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), a subsidiary of Maximus Inc., located at 1 Imeson Park Blvd, Jacksonville, FL, and was trained to work in their Student Loan Debt Resolution Group Call Center that employed 47 Debt Resolution Specialists at that time and handled calls non-stop 6 days-a-week from 8:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M.; as to the extent of my research on the project, that was subsequently aired by CBS Evening News on Apr 30, 2019 (that is still being left without resolution.)  So, believe me, I have listened to their many stories of students suffering terrible financial ruin for pursuing a College Diploma.

Student loan debt crisis impacting generations of Americans - CBS News

The student loan debt crisis now tops $1.5 trillion nationwide. "CBS Evening News" explores the impact debt has on generations of Americans in the series "Life & Debt."

1.  On Point of what being: that it is unconscionable for our Nation's Public and Private Universities to "Exploit" Student Loan Debt for their financial bottom line.  To point-out that these are our Nation's Children, (to be treated as our own children,) who are being financially ruined and made to suffer for their dreams of a higher education.  And that these Universities know from the outset that the loans are untenable; and that once begun, that they will continue on until graduation.

2.  The hard reality being that students upon completing their education cannot find suitable work in their chosen field and are then unable to pay their student loans.

3.  That the "Interest" of these student loans goes to 11% when they are no longer registered for full time courses a semester and continues until the loan is paid-off.

4.  When these loans go into "Default" after 90 Days of non-payment, they are then put into "Collections" by ruthless mercenary Private Debt Collecting Agencies who tack-on an additional 22% of the total loan for their private agency collections fee work and who then hound the student night and day with threatening phone calls.

5.  And that, after a six month period of unsuccessful Private Collection Agency harassment, that The Federal Government then begins a "Garnishment of Wages" process; (a) at 25% of a Student's Current Income (regardless of how insufficient in the terms of household finances;) (b) Confiscation of All Federal and State Income Tax Refunds; (c) and also includes a 30% Confiscation of Social Security Benefits, Railroad Retirement, or Federal Pension; (d) and law suits for liens on property.

The Cause of Action being: that the Implied Intent of the Student Loan Contract is for the purposes of securing financially enhanced employment.  Investigation and Reporting are not the solution. FIXING THE PROBLEM IS THE SOLUTION; (a) by acknowledging that enormous Unsecured Student Loans are not to be handed out unless they are backed-up by a degree related expectation of employment in the reality of ability to repay.  And (b) that subsequently, should any default of loans occur due to an inability to find Suitable Degree Related Employment; that these Student Debts, “SHALL BE DEEMED DEFERRED,” UNTIL THEY CAN BE REPAID BY A DETERMINATION OF FINANCIAL ABILITY; and Are Not Further To BE Tortured by Accrual of Interest, Collection Fees, and Garnishments.

As far as our sensible adoption of the Fiat Issue Monetary Resolution is concerned; our Nation is 22.5 Trillion Dollars in National Debt that WE can never hope to free ourselves of under the current Outdated System of Traditional Supply and Demand Economics Taxation; and that requires a Modern Hybrid Solution of being able to Issue (Not Print) the currency generation WE need to sustain ourselves Nationally, and to supply our Public Universities with the necessary Grant Monies to provide reasonable tuition costs.  The Security Well-Being of Our Nation Is At Stake Here.

Predatory lending is any lending practice that imposes unfair or abusive loan terms on a borrower. It is also any practice that convinces a borrower to accept unfair terms through deceptive, coercive, exploitative or unscrupulous actions for a loan that a borrower doesn’t need, doesn’t want or can’t afford.  Borrowers are protected under several federal laws. The Truth in Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Act all provide a level of protection for private student loan borrowers. The same applies to federal student loans; however, the borrowing process does not require an assessment of a person’s financial capacity or a review of credit history for most federal loans, with the exception of Parent and Graduate PLUS loans.  All borrowers have a right to a full disclosure of terms before signing a loan agreement. Willful and knowing violations of TILA permit imposition of a fine of $5,000, imprisonment for up to one year, or both.

Consumers have debt collection rights. While you may have the benefit of different options for affordable repayment of your private student loans, it may be necessary to restructure these loans when it becomes difficult to maintain on-time payments.  Restructuring a private loan may include refinancing a single loan or consolidating multiple loans into one. For short-term affordable repayment solutions, borrowers may choose deferment or forbearance. Debt forgiveness is not a right or guarantee, but there are cases of extreme hardship that may qualify for a loan discharge. The same considerations are true for federal student loans with the additional options associated with income-driven repayment programs, like the Pay As You Earn Plan, known as PAYE, or the Income-Based Repayment Plan, IBR.

The Truth in Lending Act (TILA) of 1968 is a United States federal law designed to promote the informed use of consumer credit, by requiring disclosures about its terms and cost to standardize the manner in which costs associated with borrowing are calculated and disclosed.  The Federal Trade Commission Act is the primary statute of the Commission. Under this Act, as amended, the Commission is empowered, among other things, to (a) prevent unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce; (b) seek monetary redress and other relief for conduct injurious to consumers; (c) prescribe rules defining with specificity acts or practices that are unfair or deceptive, and establishing requirements designed to prevent such acts or practices; (d) gather and compile information and conduct investigations relating to the organization, business, practices, and management of entities engaged in commerce; and (e) make reports and legislative recommendations to Congress and the public. The Statutes that are listed here are to be enforced under the FTC Act.

Dear Secretary DeVos:

Won’t you kindly in timely responsibility take an interest in resolving our Nation’s Student Loan Debt Crises (in plural); that has been going on for too long now.

The Federal Government in this way should have never gotten involved in the Student Loan Guarantee Business back in the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Era, to then BE In The Business of Loan sharking Collections to the ruin in unmitigated torment of Several Generations of Americans now turning into an epic disaster.

1.  In first order; the Federal Government should not be guaranteeing Loans to entice Students to obtain worthless degrees (in the terms of those degrees having any real value in the Marketplace;) who then have no way of paying those loans back in the uncertain and unpredictable Job Market of these times or any other.

2.  In this regard the Federal Government, in Cohort with Universities and Trade Schools, are guilty of Misleading Predatory Lending and ought to be responsible, by law, for the loss of those loans, pending default, to forgive and absorb them.

Let us fix this ugly unethical mess for the good of our Children and the Nation.

Dear Director Weisman:                                   U.S. Attorney General William Barr

I did very much appreciate your most kind and truly thoughtful letter in caring concern for our Nation’s Students, young and old alike, who are suffering financial ruination in Victimizing of Untenable Student Loan Debt/Bankruptcy; as was forwarded on to you, The Director, Policy Coordination Group for The United States Department of Education, for response by The United States Secretary Of Education, Ms. Betsy DeVos.  This acknowledgement seems a huge step forward in achieving our goals of providing Substantial Subsidized Funding to our United States Colleges, Universities, and Trade Schools, to lower Student Tuition Costs and Reduce Student Loan Debt; and also to reform in ethical morality the manner in which Student Loan Debt is being handled presently with a goal to Student Loan (Financial Aid) Forgiveness for Untenable Loan Debt in not being able to find work, and for a Non-Predatory Ruling in relief from Compounding Interest and being Subjected To Privatized Collections until Student Loans Can Be Re-Paid.

The problem being however, as you stated, that the matter has to be resolved by The Congress for any corrections to Title IV of the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965, as amended; and is not up to The Department of Education to reform.  

Nothing has been resolved thereof, other than to shift resolution to Congressional Action; to what obvious uncertainty it is to be left, (and while knowing full well that something needs urgently to be done to assist our Nation’s Students who are suffering financial ruination for their dreams of obtaining College Degrees;) that would seem to be the obligation of The Department of Education, vis-à-vis, The Secretary of Education, or by Executive Order if need be, to correct this situation.

Our dysfunctional process of Partisan Politics to address, my briefing conference was about resolving the dire subject of Student Loan Debt totaling now at 1.5 Trillion on the average of $47,671 per household with $166 billion in loans presently in default and being gouged by private collection agencies.  As was related to Secretary DeVos with my presentation on the Full Faith Fiat Money Bill to help reduce our Public Education Universities Student Loan Tuition Costs.

Our Nation is 22.5 Trillion Dollars in National Debt that WE can never hope to free ourselves of under the current Outdated System of Traditional Supply and Demand Economics Taxation; and that requires a Modern Hybrid Solution of being able to Issue (Not Print) the currency generation WE need to sustain ourselves by Nationally; (that as stated for is legally based to: Article 1 - Section 8 - Paragraph Claus 5 - of The Constitution For The United States – “that The Congress Shall Have The Power: to coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;”) and thereby to supply our Public Colleges, Universities, and Trade Schools, with the Federal Grant Monies they would require to provide reasonable tuition costs to our Nation's Students for the betterment of our Society here in The American United States.  The Security and Well-Being of Our Nation Is What Is At Stake: for us to achieve (in the words and vision of our late President John F. Kennedy,) a Democracy of Excellence.

“United Labor Unifying The Nation Providing Jobs
And A Fair Cost Of Living Wage For The People"

The Right Formula for Peace and Prosperity in Our Time Calls
for an Appropriate Cost of Living Minimum Wage, a Fair Price
Cost Essentials Index Regulation, a Graduated Payroll Deducted
National Health Care Plan, and for Full Faith Fiat Issue To Fund
Government Services and Provide Public Employment; That Will
Generate the Consumer Purchasing Power We Need for Economic
Growth.  Our Country's Duty Is For the Well-Being of its People.


Oath Of Affirmation

I am enclosed here with a Draft of our Democratic Platform, (not to be confused with The Democratic Party Platform,) but the Platform of our Democracy Independently Arrived At to be Supported and Voted For, not as Party Bloc, but for the substance of its Foundation to the American People of what it Represents under the Genuine Caring Terms of Our Democracy.

My position is to create a well ordered and well-regulated economy that works for everybody, no longer in chaos and turmoil, but secure and steadfast. 

To do so we need a Cost of Living Wage to put spending money into the economy, and the authorization from Congress to issue currency directly from the treasury instead of continuing on to borrow it.  The standard GNDP Taxation is antiquated and at its worst to support our vital government necessities and the overall economy is starving from the lack of consumer spending. 

If you believe my plan will work, as I know it will, and believe in me to do the job, (as I move in Journalistic Circles of Influence and Power and as I am Motivated by Definite Intelligent Plans of Action and not by the empty-headed stock rhetoric of worn out political promises,) then help me out by networking my Campaign Website around to your personal groups of contacts. 

This is a Campaign Movement of the People in that regard for our Determined Need for Responsible Self-Governing that must be approached and handled as such by direct communication of involvement with everyone personally and individually of the Constituency to hold the Office of United States Congressman as a Public Body Together, and not as a Politician, or as a Party Affiliation Link on the ballot, but as a real and personal Alliance of Personal Power, as power is meant to be held, from the Foundation of The People.

I do thank you so much sincerely for this Opportunity of Interview and for your direct assistance.

Consensus = Power: United Together We Stand In Thought and Purpose With No Division Among Us.  We are going to have to take over the government ourselves if we are ever to have any sense of relief from the momentum of paralysis that is currently plaguing us and our American Society, to death.

Dear Mr. Koniz,

Thank you for taking the time to make me aware of your concerns.

As you may know, I have made public safety a top priority in my administration. We are working to provide our police officers and firefighters with the resources they need to do their jobs and do them well. I know Sheriff Mike Williams agrees that this is our highest priority as a government, and I am personally committed to making Jacksonville the safest city in America.

Best regards,

Black People’s Movement Against Heroin, Drugs, and Violence

The American People want to "have it out."  That is why they want Donald Trump in the White House. You know it too and so does everyone.  Let us all wholeheartedly support the "Black People Against Heroin and Drugs Movement" in our Five Star Camelot Communities and break the back of that Liberal Mentality tolerating Drugs, Guns, and Violence.  That will help things in the Neighbor "Hoods."  It's a Biblical War and it's coming to a head.  You can't stop it.  "And they will Marvel at the Beast."  Revelation 13:1-18:  It's ugly business ... 666.  Heroin is an evil, corrupt, cruel, and sadistic drug that makes people suicidal by the way; and suicidal also in the meaning of Mass Killings and Death By Cop and by Suicide Vests.  Everyone needs to wise up and start doing something about what you know needs to be done here.

Love is stronger than hate; faith really is more valid than cynicism. Non-violence really is more powerful than brute force… The question for us is – do we dare to believe in it? Do we dare to try to make the Leap of Faith into a bold new Country, to shape the vision of a Model Society with the promise of prosperity and a bright new future for everyone.  We can do it all together if we all put our minds and hearts and collective wills into the project.  And you know we can, as I feel it too in my own heart, Transform our Destiny if everyone takes up their part in the decision.

The Christian Culture of our Nation, is an intriguing mix of religion and culture, piety and patriotism (and not in purely religious terms, but in the terms of what the meaning of religion is all about to do with, and upon which sacred principles inherent in the trust of our fellow man to do the right way of things that our Nation Under God was founded,) concerning what this Nation stands for in its heart; which is the embodied state of inherent goodness and noble intentions.   Our Government should exist to serve the needs and best interests of its people. 

We are embarking here on a new level of consciousness for the earth of putting good will and forcefully applied common sense of discipline in the path of negativity and centering mainly to making ample good paying jobs available and combined with a good sound economic structure to sustain everyone.  It is my plan to organize and to go to Washington as your Representative, as a Group of Citizens, with the Power, Knowledge, and Technical Resources put together, to Soundly Manage the Good Government of The United States, and to virtually be able To Resolve Any Conflict and To Solve Any Problem facing us, here in American and Around The World.

I know what is wrong, I know how to fix things, and I have the power in resources to do so.

I intend to Legislatively Carryout a Ten Point Plan to Overhaul The United States Government, Establishing a new Social Contract To Transform our American Society into a more Humane and Economically Sound and Morally Just Way of Life:


The Ten Point Plan

(1.) Entails; the Economic Legislation for Full Faith Certificate Issue to replace Borrowing Us into untenable National Debt, a Fair Price Regulation Monitoring of the Cost of Living To Prevent Consumer Gouging Inflation, the Reduction of Waste in The National Budget, and the stabilization of the Stock Market, by eliminating “Short Selling” and by placing a 3% Safety Margin on the amount that Stocks may fall in a day to prevent Panic Selling;

(2.) The Creation of a Bureau of Jobs to provide Government Sponsored Work for the Nation’s Unemployed with Prevailing Wage Legislation based to the Federal Government’s own General Schedule (GS) Wage Standards for the Nation’s Private Sector Workforce;

(3.) Health, Education, and Welfare Policy Directives involving; the legislation for an FICA Affordable Graduated National Health Care Payroll Plan, Full Faith Federal Subsidy to all American Public Schools requiring assistance with provisions for School Lunch Programs, an SSI (Social Security) Three Month Medicare Maternity Leave for Expectant Mothers, and with Grant Subsidies for; Medical and Scientific Research, the Arts, the Philharmonic;

(4.) A Fair Trade Agreement for Tariff Protection of American Industry and American Jobs with Sanctions against those Industries who Outsource and Headquarter Abroad;

(5.) Conclusive Military Intervention to The Drug War under the Articles of Marital Law Armed with Search Warrants for Search and Seizure based to Obviousness of Suspicion;

(6.) The timely Resolving of the Native American Indian Federal Tribal Matters, as to their Wishes in Fulfillment, To Restore their Dignity as the Indigenous Territorial Sovereign;

(7.) Full Faith Immediate Government Sponsored Subsidy for Conclusive Pollution Remedy to all Point Source Emissions regardless of their source and means to finance;

(8.) Full Faith Subsidy Protection of America’s Agriculture and Family Farms Providing Price Supports and Disaster Relief from Crop Failures due to Pestilence and the Elements;

(9.) A firm National Declaration of our U. S. American Moral and Humane Standards, to include; Abortion, Euthanasia, Torture Interrogation, Animal Rights, and Pornography;

(10.) And for the Resolution of present Civil Rights Errors; involving clarifying Civil Law Psychiatric Due Process Rights, and to initiate a “Second Chance Law,” defining Statutory Age Limits in the Right To Personal Privacy for Criminal and Psychiatric Histories in applications filings, and rectifying of the 5th Amendment Right Against Self-Incrimination currently being violated along with Retrial for the Same Offense under different venues.

On April 29, 2016, debt held by the public was $13.8 trillion or about 76% of the previous 12 months of GDP. Intragovernmental holdings stood at $5.3 trillion, giving a combined total gross national debt of $19.1 trillion or about 106% of the previous 12 months of GDP.[7] $6.2 trillion or approximately 45% of the debt held by the public was owned by foreign investors, the largest of which were the People's Republic of China and Japan at about $1.25 trillion for China and $1.15 trillion for Japan as of February 2016.

An entitlement program is a type of "government program” that provides individuals with personal financial benefits (or special government-provided goods or services) to which an indefinite (but usually rather large) number of potential beneficiaries have a legal right whenever they meet eligibility conditions that are specified by the standing law that authorizes the program." Entitlement spending is distinct from discretionary spending. Congress does not pass an annual appropriation; instead, expenditure on the program automatically increases or decreases with the number of claims against eligibility criteria. The government must provide the benefits even if it is insolvent, has reached the debt ceiling, or has not passed a budget.

I began my Career in Journalism after College as a Project Supervisor Grant Writer in the Fall of 1978 for The C.E.T.A. Program (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act under President Jimmy Carter,) and following that successful Project Conclusion what I began working with the Poughkeepsie, NY School District as their Public Information Officer during the school year from September 1979 through the 1980 school year, and where I had the assigned duty of School Events Coverage Reporter to photograph and coordinate publications with the Poughkeepsie Journal newspaper.  From what newspaper experience that I subsequently developed a working relationship and began and continued on with my Freelance Journalist/Correspondent Career with the City Desk from 1980 to 1989.  My career then further developed as a Press Agent for Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (DNY) in the coverage of major political local, state, and national issue with the Buffalo News and its Editor Murry Light in Buffalo, NY from 1989 - 2000 before moving to Jacksonville, FL where I have been continuing with the Florida Times Union Editor Frank Denton, and working with the Editorial Department with Mike Clark and Carol Boone covering major local, state, and national matters of crisis, as well as human interest feature articles. I have experience digging into complex issues and writing compelling stories.  I know how to build sources and use public records to write a variety of stories developed by a strong work ethic. I communicate exceptionally well with editors, designers, graphic artists, photographers and digital producers to present powerful stories to a wide audience.


We are forming an Alliance of Patriotic Devotion to this country and its government and to the Ideals of its Founding Faith akin to what Religion is expressed to feel like and be a part of.  We are the Priests of the Government Covenant in that regard which includes you also in such devotion. Everyone’s Intelligence Ideas on how to manage our government in steering it on its proper course in reasoning of how it needs to be run and looked after and cared for, for it to function properly, are very important to us in mutual regard for the Survival of our Nation.

"What this moment requires are people in the streets fighting for change and electing a Congress that is willing to stand with them."  [It's all about appropriately applied pressure.  Nothing is going to move without it.  It's Inertia.  Objects at rest tend to stay at rest.  Objects in motion tend to stay in motion.  Once we get it moving it will continue to gain momentum on its own.  But we need a lot of men, and women, all exerting a force "together" to start "The Great American Economic Social Justice Movement" moving along its appointed path.  Let's Keep The Faith.]

I stand with you. The Ways of The Old School (left unstated for decorum of public policy) Work Best in these times under the obstinate terms of these conditions that we are forced to live under and endure unable to get matters resolved; that are best resolved by the Absolute Methods as learned from La Cosa Nostra of how to Conduct Business; in the meaning that we know how "to get things done," don't we?  That otherwise we could not accomplish. When All Reason Fails ....

Thank you for your interest in forcefully freeing our fellow veterans from the terrible Psychiatric Devastation and Mass Suicide. An atrocity occurring that is being Carried Out and Permitted under the guise of Medical and Government Ethical Propriety; the Sacred Cows of America's Belief System; that our Government and the Medical Profession are always Honorable and Scrupulous in their Intentions and can do no wrong, and are always acting in our best interests.

At this time of tribute to America as, "the greatest Nation on the Earth, the Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave," to state that:  All Americans are not quite Free yet, enslaved as the majority of the people are to a Ruthless and Exploitative Corporate Economy and Casino like atmosphere of a Mercantile Stock Exchange upon which what that the hapless population is set to gamble with their Life's Savings, their future, and America's Future.  Let us all of us get together and demand a Sound and Morally Just Economy FOR ALL.  Americans cannot all be Capitalists.

Passions do run high in defending everyone's personal ideologies and beliefs don't they? So let's save our talking points of attack to argue later and resume another time with the debate over the Minimum Wage Standard and our Economic Survival here in our America after things have reasoned down a bit to feel confident about the critical game changing decisions that have to be made.

YOU ARE BEING ABSURD HERE WITH PEOPLE'S LIVES in the balance IN ARGUING INANELY ABOUT THE COST OF LIVING in such a sadistic way of bantering unreal numbers around to scare people. IT IS WHAT IT IS; The Cost of Living (Region to Region as Established by the U.S. Department of Labor;) To WHAT MONEY THAT A PERSON NEEDS TO LIVE-ON TO SURVIVE. Our Fellow Human Beings need to survive with dignity. If your Company cannot personally afford to pay the Cost of Living Minimum Wage to every one of your employees, then you have the option to File a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Claim and skimp along until things improve. Otherwise, The Cost of Living Wage, at Minimum, is going to be the price of doing business, and whatever that that might be Region to Region. If the rents in New York City are $3,000 a month, then $15 an hour is what people need to get by with for their time working. $10.50 an hour is the Cost of Living here in Jacksonville, FL. You can see that can't you? So, why are you continuing to argue this point in a tortured way as you do? You can always pay more than the Cost of Living Minimum Wage to compete for the best talent if you are a Company of Stature, (in comparing you to Walmart and other Corporate Giants who are exploiting the impoverished,) but you cannot pay less after our New Labor Legislation is enacted, unless you file a Chapter 13. Get the idea of a Cheap Labor Market and continuing Class Superiority Subordination out of your head. Human Life in the manner of Labor is Not a Market. Let us permanently change this inverse ideology together as a United Position.

I myself have an interest in resolving the U.S. Economy (among other endeavors of creating a successful nation here in United States;) and DON'T APPRECIATE BEING MADE FUN OF and Humiliated in a Condescended To Way of Ridicule in putting down my plans to achieve a Just and Sound Economy; by Classicist Snobs (akin to Racism,) who think that Corporate Exploitation Capitalism is the American Way of the land here and that other people's lives (who aren't surviving on the Capitalist Idea,) don't matter. Well, they do, and in the same intent of understanding in meaning that Black Lives Matter, and as that all the lives of all the people here matter, and matter here to us a Nation of God's People upon the Earth. What we need is to perceive the prevailing interchange of ideas between us as healthy and Creative; and that even if we need to express our negative estimation of things, that this information in exchange of ideas is valuable to us as well in helping us to achieve resolutions to our conflicts, and perhaps if not even desirable in getting things out in the open, instead of leaving them "pent-up inside," about what changes in people's attitudes of behavior that we would desire to have an effect on.

So, you take my Commands to heart, over raising the Minimum Wage Standard in this Nation to the Cost of Living Wage relative Region to Region across the board in concern to every American's best interest of Survival; and in purely Economic Terms of Negotiating, in concern, to be providing an ample margin of "Consumer Purchasing Power" to Generate America's "Consumer Driven" Industry and Services by; that are currently "Being Economically Starved" by blindsided labor exploiting unrealistic Minimum Wage Business Practices. Let it stand!


Whoever knowingly makes a false statement in writing with the intent to mislead a public servant in the performance of his official duty shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 837.06, Florida Statutes.

I have been most pressing about the issue of our U.S. Economy in foremost concern, as each of us is all painfully aware of and to its life threatening effect in negative ways of life and death regarding the exploitation of Cheap Labor upon the Working Class People of this nation; that has left our Country's Economy starving for Working Capital, that we need to put-a-stop-to.

There are workable solutions available to us, with everybody's mutual cooperation, that will improve the business opportunities available to us and enhance the quality of life for every U.S. Citizen who is willing and able to work for a decent living, to be provided with suitable cost of living employment, and money to spend in the economy, as being Good For Business, and for all concerned in the long run, and for Full Employment to be Subsidized For by the special use of Full Faith Monetary Solution if not totally provided for by private employment. I would like to see the results of this Economic Solution succeed, and I am sure that will provide the basis for an enduring harmony and prosperity to exist. The overall economy needs the public to have money to spend to keep it alive and thriving and the people need to be able to survive economically.

And importantly, we need to resolve the subject of Drugs ever prevailing here that never does get resolved and that is only getting worse by the day. This condition is being caused by Addiction being fueled by, and resulting from, the lack of employment and impoverished circumstances overall that we need to rectify by providing Positive Action Gainful Public Employment to the otherwise impoverished population, as discussed, and by the Use of Military Troop Involvement under the Articles of Martial Law to Detect and to Interdict the Drug Trafficking Criminal Element occurring under War Clause with Capital Punishment of the Major Traffickers involved, and otherwise to be De-Criminalized to be treated as a Medical Condition of Addiction.

We need also to put an end to the Drugs Destroying our Country that never does get resolved and that is only getting worse by the day. This condition is being caused by Mass Addictions being fueled by, and resulting from, the lack of employment imposing impoverished circumstances overall that we need to rectify by providing Positive Action Gainful Public Employment to an otherwise desperate population, as discussed; and by the Use of Military Strength Involvement under the Articles of Martial Law to Detect and to Interdict the Drug Trafficking Criminal Element at large under War Clause with Capital Punishment for the Major Traffickers involved; and otherwise to be De-Criminalized and treated humanely as a Medical Condition of Addiction.


Clearly we have a conflict of Interest here, Not To Be Naïve About, regarding this imperative issue To Resolve of Illegal Immigration at present affecting our American Sovereignty, Heritage, and Livelihoods.  And to point out that I personally do enjoy the diversity of the earth’s humanity and cultures whom are gathered here with us at this hour to celebrate life with us, and I am all too much at heart for each of those who risked their lives and hardships in their optimism to immigrate here in search of a better life from the ones in the distant lands from which they came.  However, realistically, are we talking about a few hundred, or tens of millions of these illegal immigrants to arrive here to be granted citizenship for their efforts; to undercut our wages and replace us on our jobs, with many to fall victims to the Drug and Sex Trades, and otherwise to cause us to have to pay for their upkeep, to eventually take us over politically and pose a threat to our Nation’s Security.  Illegal Immigration is a major U.S. Crime.  Let us remain on watch with that idea in mind and ever vigilant while being kind.

It's going to be a hard campaign.  There are a lot of wars going on now to resolve besides the taking up of arms in defense of our American Veteran Brothers and Sisters under siege of Psychiatric Labelling Devastation and under Duress of Psychotropic Warfare.  There is also the Labor War going on.  Rents are up, wages are down.  America is losing its Middle Class and WE are losing America.  No one seems to care and nor is anyone doing anything about the situation that is steadily deteriorating in the meantime, and mean it is, with no one taking charge.

The Right Formula for Peace and Prosperity in our time calls for an Aggressive Congressional Campaign to confront the obvious Existing Errors in our Government particularly as they are occurring to our Economy and to bring about a caring regard for the benefit of all of the people. Our Motto Is: “A Democracy That Works For All The People.” This active brand of Social-Capitalism will call for: a Prevailing Middle Class Wage Legislation with an Anti-Trust Fair Price Cost of Living Regulation Agreement, an Affordable Graduated FICA Payroll Deducted National Medicare Health and Dental Care Plan, and for Full Faith Supplemental Currency Issue; to expand and to meet all necessary Government Payrolls, provide for; Infrastructure, Public Employment, The Environment, Emergency Disaster Relief; and that will Eliminate Budget Deficit in Taxation Shortfall by the Issuing Currency from the Treasury instead of borrowing from Banks and Foreign Governments. This will end the Lending Collaborations that are tied to the annual Congressional Approval of the National Debt Ceiling. The plan will also ensure that the Stock Market is not further subjected to Panic Manipulation by placing a Cap on how far a stock can fall, 3% of its value, in one Trading Day.  And in all (along with Enforcing a Fair Balance of Foreign Trade,) that will produce the Consumer Purchasing Power We Need To Secure our Great Nation’s Domestic Economic Vitality, Growth, and Stability.

"That the Earth with All Its Life Abounding Exists in an Eternity of Infinite Time and Space is a miracle beyond comprehension to behold. Let us therefore govern ourselves accordingly to create a Model Society upon the Earth for all to emulate.  Sophisticated Reasoning Is In Order:  In The End You Will Say, 'We Did It Ourselves.' We Are The Only Ones Who Can Make Those Determinations Of Choice."

Focused Relaxation

Find a quiet solitary place. Your office, an empty conference room, even a bathroom stall will do. Sit comfortably, with feet flat on the floor. Close your eyes.

“Listen” to your breath for the first minute. Feel the breath as it enters your body, flows into your lungs, and brings life-giving oxygen to every part of you.

Now, focus your awareness on a visual image in your mind: the Spiritual Presence of The Holy Father.

See that Presence in your mind’s eye—color and shape—as clearly as you can.

As you do so, images, thoughts, feelings, and even sounds may rise into your consciousness. Don’t focus on them, but also don’t try to force them away. Simply notice them, and “let them continue on their way.” Bring your focus back to The Father.

Your breathing will slow and deepen as you enter a semi-meditative frame of mind. As it does, you’ll achieve a calmer yet concentrated state: one of “focused relaxation.” Open your eyes. Notice what this more relaxed-yet-focused state feels like so you can recreate it at will. 

Know the full impact of Paul's words. "If God is for us, who can be against us?"  Romans 8:31

Thank you so much for your loyal support and for your sincere interest and civic-minded intent to be involved in this critical campaign of the people.  People Are What Matter To Us Here.  Each of you has to personally Take Charge of the Affairs of State as if you were The President.

(Luke 4:21-30)

We all resent the truth when it contradicts our established way of thinking.

4:24  “Truly I tell you no prophet is accepted in his own country.”  

Fair Trade, Non-Exploitative- Good Old Fashioned American Capitalism Is What We Need Here, Although, the term "Old Fashioned" is a rallying colloquialism and does not apply.

Perhaps it is difficult for us to realize that all of us are called: called to be holy; called to serve; called to follow Him. It is through our baptism we are called. We are a people who stand in the presence of God, who have felt that presence. We are a people who believe we have been raised up, not above others, but to share a vision with others. To continue the transformation of human life, Christians should make a difference in the world.

I believe in my heart that a fair wage is the way of decent kind folk here in America and that honesty works both ways.  I don't know where all this buzz for cheap labor to get exploited over by the Nation’s Employers got started, (probably with the Mexican Invasion,) but it certainly is a shame when people can't afford to go to the dentist or to get their cars worked on, or even to afford to pay their rent, or to do much else of the things that they need money to do just to get by with to buy the staples in life, for the hard work they do.  And that is just my side of it, if it is that way there with you?

I am always a champion of sharing ideas and cultivating a healthy exchange of information in valuing other people input of ideas.  There is an opening for supervisors to enlist the input and feedback of ideas from their subordinates without feeling threatened "by asking" them what do they think about whatever it is?  And respecting them for their answers; either, I like that idea, or I have thought of that idea myself already, or I don't like it because ....  That way, (and as we discussed,) subordinates can have input "on invitation" with new and fresh ideas.  I firmly believe that a golf course is bigger that anyone person to manage entirely on their own.  And so it all comes down to having an appropriate attitude.

I will look forward to working with you on this project and many others.  Thanks so much for your intelligence input.  It's a real team effort that's going to make the difference.  MIND = ENERGY = FORCE = EFFECT.  CONSENSU = POWER.  The Rights Ideas in the Right Minds at the Right Time In Organizational Consensus becomes a Dynamic Forceful Energy of Positive Effect.  Let's begin to bring things about.  There's a beauty in such a thought, to be able To Effect Real Change to occur in our Society.

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival
and the success of liberty."     ...   President Kennedy

The only Racial Issue WE have here at the moment is to settle the very unhealthy idea that the two Races, of the White, and the Dark, should unite and Create a Total Race of Mulattoes. To what that the Propaganda Mongers in Hollywood cite as being "Racist" to have any opposition to.  However, there are those of the Caucasian Race who, if pressed to the task, would defend itself from extinction, as Charlemagne did in his crusade in 778, and as the other Crusaders did during the 11th through the 15th centuries to Prevent the White Race from being overrun and absorbed to extinction by the Moors.  Not to be confused with being a Confederate or Southern Idea, or with the idea of being a White Supremacist or Red Neck.  It has to do with Preservation of Species, the same as if the White Race were being Systematically Exterminated by Outright Genocide. The effect of Total Absorption Mulattoization is the same in equivalence of genocide and the White Race would end up being in the same condition here in the United States and Europe as the People of India are at present day and divided into Castes of varying degrees of color from darkest to lightest. This tragic event could all be avoided, if the Three Races, the White, the Black, and the Mulattoes they made, would agree to remain content to marry with their own kind and live in Harmony together and not struggle for power domination over one another.  This is the Right Choice for Peace.  The inherent rivalry in insane jealousy among the Races over the Females and Preservation of Species is the Root Cause of all Bigotry and Hatred Expressed of Prejudice and Persecution upon the Earth.

The beauty of our America is that we have the Freedom of Free Speech here in The United States. You have to believe in it and to accept other people's right to have their thoughts and to freely express and communicate their ideas and beliefs, to correct error as they see it, and to have their opinions, without censure and penalty and without fear of reprisal. Isn't that what it is? You live by it then! You may not like what I have to say, but you have to respect my right to say it. Things are not all one way, or the other, and sometimes people need to be told what the matters are.

It is hard to say though where Political Correctness leaves off and Duty Begins in that regard and for what sense of mission in urgency that such things as statements of public policy need to be made to all who will listen.  We, as Americans, are not about to be Dominated and/or Overtaken by Foreign Peoples or by False Ideologies for the sake of Political Correctness when such attitudes that are Antithetical to our own threaten to annihilate us and our way of life to stand up for, and our ground to. 

I have no stomach for cowardice and particularly as it is rendered in the form and meaning of the Stockholm Syndrome in sycophantic licking of the enemies’ boots just to get along for another day.  And also that we do share the same earnest desires for Peace, and if Peace be found in the statements of the truth, and to the people needing to be told, (no commanded,) as to what to do to be able to get along with everybody else, and to the terms then of mutual and Peaceful Co-Existence.  Then such statements needs be made and to whether anyone in particular wants to hear them or not.  And if the price for such statements results in deaf ears removing themselves from the conferencing of conflict, then at least the conflict was at least presented to those individuals to be listened to, at least once to, and the attempt at reasoning made with them set down. 

It's a private affair about the American United States that existed before many of you were born to remember, but I do remember it to counsel everyone about.


Remember the meditation at the deep well of silence in your heart. It waits there in expectation for you, as if listening to the sound of silence, and it is empty there of any thoughts, except one, that is the thought of God The Father Yahewh/Brahman, The Source of All Energy, Whose Thought and Energy We Each Are. Be there. And I will be there with you. Don't think of it as being Religious. Think of it as reconciling your internal harmony in your own way. There are other things that you could focus on to get you there, like the color blue, or round circles, or anything serene and soothing. I choose to focus on The Heavenly Father YHWH, (or named BRAHMAN in Hindu Faith, the ultimate reality underlying all phenomena,) Bed Rock of The Mind. The breath goes slowly in and out. The muscles relax. You fall into a deep trance-like state of Homeostasis. The Mind Relaxes and Energy is Stored there in the Mind At Rest. Temples Relax. Tongue Lies Flat.  Eyes are still.  Awaiting the sudden and unexpected a Flash of Satori Revelation (in the terminology of Zen Buddhism,) to occur. You can't think your way there. And in the science of the Un-Thought at that moment you become Totally Aware Of Everything in The Knowledge of Divine Faith Transcending into Godhead, (or in the Judeo-Christian expression of “Being Taken Up Into Heaven.”) That goes without saying, needing to be said, that one must cultivate the Correct Path For Life that does not generate any inner turmoil to disturb the Silent Mind. For It Is All Mind. Everything There Is.  The Mind Of The Creator All.  And otherwise that Life Goes On as it Always Does and as it is Always Eternally Destined To.

The DREAM Act (acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) is an American legislative proposal for a multi-phase process for undocumented immigrants in the United States that would first grant conditional residency and upon meeting further qualifications, permanent residency. 

The bill was first introduced in the Senate on August 1, 2001, S. 1291 by Dick Durbin and Orrin Hatch, and has since been reintroduced several times but has failed to pass.

U.S. Constitution:   Article. V

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

Proposed Amendment to the Constitution of the United States

Section 1. When the number of states exceeding twenty-five percent of all the United States shall have declared any enactment of the Legislative, Executive or Judicial branch to be in violation of this Constitution, that enactment shall, in whole, be declared invalid and no court may thereafter enforce its provisions.

Section 2. When any state shall have declared any enactment of the Legislative, Executive or Judicial branch to be in violation of this Constitution, that state may, at its option, prohibit enforcement of that enactment within its borders. It is up to each State to join together. 

The states are the "boss" of the federal government and must regain control of it. The federal government exists to serve the states and the people, not the other way around. I believe that it is time to restore the proper relationship between the states, the people and the federal government. As my representative in the state government, I urge you to defend our state against encroachments by the federal government.

It is the Constitution, not the Supreme Court, which is the Supreme Law of the Land. Even the Supreme Court should be accountable for overstepping Constitutional limits on federal power.

In Defense of the American Sovereign. 

The Declaration of Independence was written to maintain the Sovereignty of the United States, and sovereignty is defined as the right, power and authority of a nation or people for self-governing.  It's a British Colony and European Nation in Foundation, (a White Caucasian Sovereign Nation in Racially Correct Terminology.) Everyone else, of all the Denominations of the Earth who have been welcomed here to equally participate, (as this or that "Prefixed-American,") are all welcome here; (and All God’s People of the Earth,) but the Sovereign is American European as it shall remain.

This is the only way of Peace.  All other notions are destined for war.  क्या हाल है?  ¿Cómo Estás Intiendes?

The Foreign Peoples here who have taken up residence with us haven't actually tried to take the Country and our Government away from us yet; but in theory, (based to their Liberal and Mistaken Interpretation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 being force down our throats,) they think they can.  And they are en-massing their numbers upon us to that declared end, of eventually over-populating, and out-populating us, with the ability to take over the government "Democratically" at the polls, and with it the control of our military and our nuclear arsenal.

The American People Are Not To Continue On To Live Here Side By Side With People Who Are Avowedly Our Enemies; (and the numbers are growing through unrestricted immigration, illegal or otherwise, and by Inter-Racial Procreation Absorption,) to be championed on in the media under the anti-banner "White Race Losing Ground."

Belief In God, is not the Right term to use for us here.  For WE possess the direct Knowledge of God.  We live with The Heavenly Father and HE with US.  We Know The Father.  And HIS thoughts are always with US as a part of our daily lives.  The Father is our Constant Companion and WE are HIS Companions, To Abide With In Faith, as HE Made US To Be, from the Power of HIS Lonely Mind in the Darkness, and HIS DREAM OF LIFE. The Question of Who Made God, and the Nowhere HE Originates From, Remains a Mystery, even to HIM. Let us thereof count our blessings and be thankful for the life we have to share with one another In True Faith.

To qualify for endorsement, prolife candidates must sign a Personhood Affirmation and the The Right to Life of All Persons Recognized and Protected Amendment Petition indicating their agreement to Personhood FL ProLife PAC's comprehensive prolife principles covering not only abortion but also abortion funding, RU-486 Abortion Pill, fetal stem cell research, human cloning, fetal tissue research, and assisted suicide and euthanasia. Candidates also must affirmed that all humans should be protected under the Florida and US Constitutions from the beginning of the biological development of that human being to natural death. Moreover, candidates must agree to defend all innocent human life including preborn babies irrespective of their manner of conception, the elderly, and the disabled.

Too many people mistakenly make the Human Sex Impulse into Mortal Sin and condemn themselves to Hell needlessly as hopeless sinners estranged from God. The Rule here is, according to The Heavenly Father, "No Harm, No Foul." (There are Sins of a Sexual Nature to contemplate of course, but not for the normal occurrences of the sexual desires of humanity that keep us perpetuating ourselves into the Cycle of Life and Death that continues on eternally in the manner it is and as was made to be in that way by The Creator.) The Fall from Grace in the Garden of Eden had to do with the Ingestion of the Poppy Seed Ball Opium/Heroin, “The Forbidden Fruit,” (as is all too self-evident in the modern time,) and the only Fruit of the Tree of Life that God Forbade Mankind to Eat of “lest ye die;” and not for the normal course of Human Sexual Desires and Pleasures which God hath made to delight in to perpetuate Human Kind and Who HE Himself Judged, “to be good.” Judge for yourselves and be at peace thereof and with The Father.  God's unending love has declared itself.

There are no coincidences. Everything is MIND MATTER and in that way of understanding THE DREAM involves us intuitively with everything. It's ALL THE MIND OF THE CREATOR. Everything is Sentient. We are guided here in that regard by a strong moral sense of duty and obligation of propriety and correctness to do what is right for the people, under the directed Guidance of The Hand of God.

Former Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford wins GOP nod for House seat

By Drew Dixon Tue, Aug 30, 2016 @ 9:41 pm | updated Tue, Aug 30, 2016 @ 10:48 pm
Times-Union staff writer Nate Monroe contributed to this report.

Once votes started to be counted, it was clear former Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford would run away with the GOP primary in the race for the Fourth U.S. Congressional District in Northeast Florida.

The contest was never close between Rutherford and several other Republican contenders in the primary election.

At 10 p.m. Tuesday with 175 of 178 precincts reporting, Rutherford had 39 percent of the vote and nearly double the ballots cast for his nearest competitor. The seat includes all of Baker and Nassau counties and most of Duval County.   [REDISTRICTING ERROR]

“I think it’s going to be critical that we go to Washington, D.C. with a mandate from the people,” Rutherford said at his victory party Tuesday night at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Jacksonville. “That’s why I think a win of this magnitude is important going forward. “The next step in the general [election] will be even more important. …

“We’re going to continue go out and reach out to all of this community and Northeast Florida, work hard to get their support and garner that together so that we got to Washington, D.C. Northeast Florida goes with a very strong demand,” Rutherford said.

Rutherford, the city’s top lawman for 12 years, quickly amassed the support of Northeast Florida’s political and law-enforcement establishment when U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw abruptly announced he would not seek re-election in the spring. Rutherford’s competitors were never able to seriously challenge him.

Rutherford’s successor at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Mike Williams, said his former boss mounted a formidable campaign considering there were experienced Republicans running against him.

“I don’t know if it’s a commentary on the other candidates,” said Williams, who endorsed Rutherford. “Anytime that there’s an open seat, you’ve got a lot of people who want to step up and run. I think that’s the point that we still have people who want to get involved and get engaged. That was a very strong field. He [Rutherford] was very fortunate to come out on top,”

Still, Hans Tanzler III, the son of the mayor who consolidated Jacksonville, made a more competitive run than was expected.

With a smaller backing of the city’s donor class and money of his own — he poured about $400,000 of his personal wealth into the race — Tanzler put together an aggressive campaign. He challenged Rutherford’s commitment to conservative principles, trying to use some of the former sheriff’s more unorthodox positions, like opposition to the death penalty, against him. He also touted the endorsement of U.S. Sen. John McCain in the waning days of the race. But Tanzler ended up finishing third in the race.

Coming in second in the primary was State Rep. Lake Ray who also found some traction in the race. A familiar face in the city — he is also former member of the Jacksonville City Council — Ray nonetheless struggled to break through the glut of ads from his competitors and raise the kind of money Tanzler and Rutherford had on hand.

Four other candidates ran but had trouble registering much support:

- St. Johns County Commissioner Bill McClure.

- Steve Kaufman, owner of a Riverside public-relations company who spent 27 years in the Navy Reserve.

- Ed Malin, owner of two well-known Jacksonville Beach restaurants, Angie’s Subs and Angie’s Grom.

- Deborah Katz Pueschel, a former air-traffic controller and perennial candidate, previously ran unsuccessfully for the seat in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2010, 2012 and 2014 variously as a Republican, a write-in and as a candidate with no party affiliation.

Rutherford moves on to the general election on Nov. 8 as the heavy favorite against David Bruderly, a Democrat, and Gary Koniz, a candidate with no party affiliation.

Sir, this inaccuracy has already been addressed and corrected. I acknowledge I looked at the wrong and outdated district map and I informed my editor and we corrected the mistake. The proper counties were added online and included in a follow up story. But thank you for communicating with us.

Former Jacksonville sheriff easy favorite to replace U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw

Former Sheriff John Rutherford answers questions after winning the Republican primary for congressional district Four at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront on Tuesday August 30, 2106 in Jacksonville, Florida. (Florida Times-Union, Bruce Lipsky)

John Rutherford won’t quite say it, but he knows it: Barring an unprecedented upset, the former Jacksonville sheriff will be the next congressman from Florida’s 4th District. Rutherford, a Republican, is the establishment-backed front-runner to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw in the conservative district that includes parts of Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties. Crenshaw, well known and liked in Jacksonville, is an even-tempered Republican who has sometimes rejected the ideological rigidity of colleagues influenced by the tea party. Rutherford is likely to adopt a different style, though the former lawman is a bit hard to pigeonhole on political ideology.

He has embraced Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s controversial presidential nominee, and he has shown a flair for using some of the businessman’s fiery populist rhetoric. Rutherford has called the Black Lives Matter movement a “hate group,” and he told Trump supporters at a St. Augustine rally Monday that he’s locked up criminals who have committed fewer crimes than Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

And yet Rutherford decries the brinkmanship-style partisanship in Washington, D.C., often invoking one of his main campaign talking points: “The ideologues have taken over.” He calls himself an incrementalist who is ready to strike deals with colleagues across the aisle. He opposes the death penalty, which came under fire by his opponents in the GOP primary, and as sheriff supported a tax increase to pay for public safety.

He’s begun forging ties with Republican colleagues and party congressional leadership (which is feuding with Trump).

Rutherford’s campaign has doled out more than two dozen $1,000 checks to GOP campaigns for Congress, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was in Jacksonville over the weekend for a reception in support of Rutherford. He hopes making early connections will help fill Northeast Florida’s congressional seniority deficit in the wake of Crenshaw’s retirement and long-time U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown losing her re-election bid.

“Losing Ander Crenshaw, losing Corrine Brown … this is going to create a vacuum up there for Northeast Florida,” he said. “I really want to try and fill that vacuum even before they leave. I don’t want to be presumptive, but I don’t want to waste time either.”

Rutherford faces a scrappy perennial candidate in Democrat David Bruderly and Gary Koniz, who has no party affiliation and has also made multiple unsuccessful runs for office. Bruderly, an engineer and Navy veteran, has picked up endorsements from advocacy groups but has not found much institutional support from the Democratic Party. He has about $15,000 on hand for his campaign; Koniz has reported no contributions.

The contest is not expected to be competitive.

“I can’t imagine a scenario where this is even reasonably close,” said Michael Binder, a University of North Florida political science professor and director of the school’s public opinion research lab.
The district would prove daunting for even a well-known, well-funded Democrat.  Rutherford, a Republican, is the establishment-backed front-runner to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw in the conservative district that includes parts of Duval, Nassau and St. Johns

Republicans make up just shy of 50 percent of registered voters in the district, which is also overwhelmingly white. About 29 percent of registered voters are Democrats. Most of the city’s Democratic voters are in an adjacent minority-access congressional district.

An internal poll from Rutherford’s campaign of 320 likely voters, conducted Oct. 20-21, shows him holding a 40-point lead over Bruderly, 57 percent to 17 percent. The poll has a 5.5 percentage-point margin of error. Rutherford is outperforming Trump in the district, where the former sheriff’s name ID sits at about 72 percent, according to the survey from Data Targeting Research, run by Jacksonville political consultant Tim Baker — who has recently run and won some of the city’s highest profile races.

Bruderly still sees a path where others do not. “This is going to be the upset of the century,” he said.

Bruderly has criticized Rutherford for adopting “the Rose Garden strategy” — refusing to meet him for a debate.

“He will not be a credible congressman if he refuses to debate me,” Bruderly said. “Man to man, face to face, and tell the people his beliefs are better than mine.”

Rutherford said he’s been to more community forums than he can count and that in any case it’s Bruderly’s job to attract attention to his candidacy.

“If he wants to get his message out, he needs to work on that. That ain’t my job,” Rutherford said.

Bruderly wants to create a “sustainable 21st century economy” and protect the region’s military infrastructure — virtually a required position for anyone running in a part of the state where about 50,000 people are employed by the armed services. He joined a group of three other North Florida Democrats running for office in calling for a series of policies aimed at improving the lives of veterans and their families.

Bruderly called Rutherford a “one-dimension candidate.”

Attacks against Rutherford, who was Jacksonville sheriff for 12 years until he was term limited and left in 2015, didn’t stick in the Republican primary. Homicides ebbed and flowed during his tenure — finishing with a rise in homicides — as did controversies. But he was a popular figure and never faced a tough re-election campaign.

He’s focused his congressional campaign on some boilerplate congressional issues — national security, immigration, the economy — as well as some overlooked ones — reforming mental-health services. Rutherford is also dabbling in some local populism: He is calling for the federal government to allow for a red snapper season next year. The fish has been heavily regulated since a federal study found overfishing had driven the species to low levels.

On Trump, Rutherford said the businessman has “said a lot of things I absolutely don’t agree with,” but they are fully aligned on many issues. He also said the future makeup of the United States Supreme Court has weighed heavily on his decision to back the Republican presidential candidate.

“This election is truly about the makeup of the Supreme Court for the next 25 years,” he said. “Whether we’re going to have a very liberal court that believes in stretching the Constitution or some strict constitutionalists that believe in protecting the Constitution. That’s the risk here.”

So what kind of Republican is Rutherford? A hard-liner? A moderate? Tea partier? Populist?

“I’m conservative. But I’m not an ideologue,” he said. “I think people appreciate that difference.”

Did I somehow miss your request to me for an Interview in gathering your "detailed information", Mr. Monroe?

It was really rude of you to snub me as you did in your yesterday's 10/27/1016 news article entitled: Election 2016 U.S. House, District 4: "Former Duval sheriff clear favorite to replace Crenshaw".  I am after all a viable and valid Independent Candidate in this Congressional Race with a Working Class Constituency in need of my Representation and my voice in their behalf with a point of view to be "reasoned fairly" before the public.  

And besides being rude, what is the same as a violation of the Federal Election Law (47 U.S. Code 351 regarding Equal Media Opportunity Coverage to Candidates for Federal Public Office) and is a violation of Florida's Election Law (104.061 Florida Statutes Corruptly Influencing Voting); as listed in the "Illegal Election Tampering" category, with a severe penalty for violating; having to do here specifically with a Public Media (namely the Florida Times Union) providing (non-paid Political Influence Advertising) in Un-Fair/Un-Equal Media Time Coverage in favor of one Candidate in exclusion over others; when such public air time is to be provided equally to all Candidates.

I do therefore firmly request that you immediately print for me a legally addendumed version of your article to highlight my Campaign Profile and Platform write up (as you should have included) along with the other two "Establishment Oriented Republican and the Democrat Candidates" who you seem to feel are the only viable candidates in this race according to your slanted and biased version of our Very important Election Coverage.

The Florida Times Union is not your private forum in this instance, Mr. Monroe.  And it is your obligation and journalistic responsibility to report your 2016 Election Coverage with unbiased intelligence and truthful fairness.


Florida's 4th congressional district -

The retirement of Ander Crenshaw, redistricting and other political forces have all four northeast Florida congressional districts in play this year.

47 U.S. Code § 315 - Candidates for public office...

a) Equal opportunities requirement; censorship prohibition; allowance of station use; news appearances exception; public interest; public issues discussion opportunities:  If any licensee shall permit any person who is a legally qualified candidate for any public office to use a broadcasting station, he shall afford equal opportunities to all other such candidates for that office in the use of such broadcasting station: [currently To Include Newspaper and Digital Media].  Communications Act of 1934, § 315; codified at 47 U.S.C. § 315

The equal-time rule specifies that U.S. radio and television broadcast stations must provide an equivalent opportunity to any opposing political candidates who request it.  This means, for example, that if a station gives a given amount of time to a candidate in prime time, it must do the same for another candidate who requests it, at the same price if applicable. The equal-time rule was created because the FCC thought the stations could easily manipulate the outcome of elections by presenting just one point of view, and excluding other candidates.

What do you see as the top three issues in this race?

A Cost of Living Minimum Wage based to Government General Schedule Wage Rates.

An F.I.C.A. Payroll Deducted National Health and Dental Care Plan Medicare Card.

Martial Law Intervention to The War On Drugs with Death Penalty for Major Traffickers.

How can you help voters in a way that others running for this office cannot?

I can help individual voters by working person-to-person in response to public needs. By Fast Track Coordinating of Appropriate Legislation to the problems facing Americans. And by my personal caring for this Nation and for the pursuit of happiness of its citizens.

What would you hope to be remembered for accomplishing after serving in this office?

My most fervent hope and desire for Office is to be remembered as the concerned person who delivered Economic and Social Justice to the American People by legislating an end to the Wage Slavery Class Discrimination being allowed to continue here in violation of our U.S. Standard for Fair and Equal Treatment to all its Citizens whose rights to Survive the Economy are Paramount to the Principles of this Nation.

Campaign website:
Facebook and/or Twitter pages:

The American Dream has been much different than expected: to succeed by working hard, to live an honest life, to strive to do the right thing, to help others whenever we can, and to live a principled life. But the middle class that is/was the heart and soul of America is all but dead (and especially pertaining for our valiant U.S. Servicemen and Women returning from their Tours of Duty Abroad and suffering from the Trauma and Remorse of War to face lives of rejection, alienation, poverty, and despair.)  I need all the Grass Roots word-of-mouth Support I can get in networking communications to Carry the Election in order to be able to legislate effectively for a mandatory Cost-Of-Living Minimum Wage Working Class Defense, and to provide needed Public Service Employment to the great numbers of Americans being left Without Resources in the Economics of Survival.  The inertia in status quo of the Upper Class Mind-Set of “Let The People Starve Capitalism” is not going to do the job for you. My Campaign is not about mindless rote Party Block Voting but about having a Viable Platform of Intelligent Substance to Vote On.

I am on the ballot for the U.S. House of Representatives in Florida’s 4th Congressional District running as an Aggressive Independent Bi-Partisan Conservative in a Campaign to confront the obvious Existing Errors in our current Government; particularly as they are occurring to our U.S. Economy; and especially to Represent, Defend, and Protect the Working Class Population in America in the War of The Have’s against The Have Not’s, from the Victimizng of Criminal Class Discriminating Exploitation, and to bring about a caring regard for the benefit of all of the people here in keeping with the Moral and Ethical Integrity of our Nation’s Founding Ideology.

Our Motto Is: “A Democracy That Works For All The People Here;” that calls for: a Prevailing Middle Class Cost-Of-Living Minimum Wage Legislation, locally to be set at GS 1 Government General Schedule at $10.55 an hour, with a Fair Price Cost-of-Living Monitoring Agreement.

We are also Calling for an Affordable Graduated FICA Payroll Deducted Fully Paid National Health and Dental Care Medicare Card Plan, and for Full Faith Fiat Issue Subsidy to Eliminate Budget Deficit in Taxation Shortfall by Issuing Currency from the Treasury instead of borrowing the money from Banks and Foreign Governments; to meet all necessary Government Payrolls, provide for; National Infrastructure, Public Employment, The Environment, Emergency Disaster Relief; National Safety and Security, and All Other Urgent Necessities of State lacking funding to be accomplished. That will in all, and along with firmly Enforcing a Fair Balance of Foreign Trade, produce the Consumer Purchasing Power We Need for Business To Thrive and To Secure our Nation’s Domestic Economic Vitality, Growth, Defense, and Stability on into the future.

This plan will also end the Lending Collaborations that are tied to the Congressional Approval in  Annual Increase of the National Debt Ceiling; and to ensure that the Stock Market (to what our Nation’s Financial Security is tied and along with it the Public’s Investment and Retirement Savings Trust,) that is not to be further subjected to Panic Manipulation by Placing a Cap on how far a particular stock can fall, 3% of its value, in any one Trading Day, and by putting an end to “Short-Selling Speculation.”  We need to Govern here by Forcible and Determined Consensus.

"That the Earth with All Its Life Abounding Exists in an Eternity of Infinite Time and Space is a Miracle Beyond Comprehension to behold and to marvel at.  Let us therefore govern ourselves accordingly with Reverence and Cherishment for the life we have to create a Model Society on the Earth in Respect.  Sophisticated Reasoning Is In Order:  In The End You Will Say, 'We Did It Ourselves.' We Are The Only Ones Here Who Can Make Those Determinations Of Choice."
