April 20, 2014 ~TPATH~ Before we get into the nuts and bolts of this article it is important to understand that we are not instigating or supporting yet another "conspiracy theory". The blogs and social media are rife with speculation, fear and concerns about the way governments of the world manipulate, obfuscate and out and out lie to the people. There is of course good reason for this apprehension.
Continuing on with this reflection, one needs to ask what is it that we know about that missing airliner. The unfortunate and honest answer is that we only know that the information we have been given thus far has changed over and over and the logic behind any of their profanations of fact, is anything but logical.
As the many countries involved in "this search", which some may deem "this cover up", expend millions of dollars searching the unsearchable, TPATH has decided to lay out what we know and what we are told we know.
Enough time has passed, just over 30 days now, since the ill fated Malaysian Flight 370 went missing. During that time only ObamaCare has changed more often than government issued information.
So what are we supposed to think? What are we supposed to believe? To come to grips with this one needs to step back and compare facts to theories.
The theories list is made up of the various speculations, lies and manipulations which have been presented to the people through government spokesmen, flaky bloggers and conspiracy theoreticians.
The facts list is made up of only math, science and technical information. Then a comparison of the entire package will point to only one possible conclusion.
1. The pilot of the plane was doubly distraught over his wife leaving him and one of his friends being convicted of a crime. So he decided to redirect the plane, take it into a nosedive and fly south and for 7 hours 258 passengers and crew sat like sheep and did nothing. There of course is no way, one suicidal pilot could keep that many people out of the cockpit for 7 hours.
2. China, after not getting a radio response from the cockpit and without first scrambling fighter jets to investigate, took down Flight 370 with hundreds of their own citizens aboard. They then quickly sent out "cleanup" crews and hid the wreckage.
3. The United States government needed several top officials of a new technology company, who were on board, to either be silenced or compromised. So they had CIA operatives take control of the plane and land it on the island of Diego Garcia. This of course would draw less attention than, let's say, abducting them from the street or their hotel rooms.
4. The pilot was an Islamic fundamentalist in cahoots with Iranian terrorists who brazenly boarded the plane with identical sets of legs. Together they hijacked the plane, flew south for 7 hours into the deepest region of Indian Ocean and then crashed it where it would be almost impossible to find.
5. As part of a long planned and well timed terrorist plot by Islamic fanatics and with the help of one or more Islamic countries, hijackers secured the flight, took evasive actions which included multiple elevation and direction changes which avoided tracking systems of the various countries. The Boeing 777 was then flown to a previously prepared landing strip either on a remote island north of Maldives or the mainland of Pakistan or Afghanistan. The plane is now being prepared for a devastating attack on an infidel populated capitol. Fate of the passengers and crew, unknown.
1. After its last contact with Malaysian Air traffic control the plane took evasive and controlled maneuvers which included dropping below high altitude radar systems.
2. The plane changed course to a south west direction, almost 180 degrees off course.
3. Transponders were shut off and radio communication ended hours before the plane crashed or landed.
4. For more than 2 weeks, the finest radar tracking systems in the world, located in Australia, Diego Garcia and other countries claimed to not know where the plane went or had tracked it.
5. Then, miraculously Australia and Malaysia found data which proved, they claim, the flight headed for the southern Indian Ocean.
6. Without any verified evidence of wreckage, Malaysia announced the plane and all its passengers were lost in the bowels of the Indian Ocean.
7. Several people living on a small island north of Diego Garcia, consistent with time and distance, reported seeing a low flying airliner heading north west towards an area where hundreds of small islands are located or even further, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
8. Passenger planes never carry more fuel than is required to travel according to flight plan, with just a bit extra in case of being forced into a holding pattern. Carrying just the right amount of fuel is a very important way for airlines to save money and cut costs.
9. An airliner flying under the radar would encounter dense atmosphere and a 7 hour fuel supply, calculated for about 40,000 feet, would be drastically reduced at lower altitudes. So if the plane had of evaded the sophisticated tracking systems of the US located in Diego Garcia or those deployed by Australia on its western coast, it needed to fly low. That would have reduced flying time by more than half. Under those conditions the plane could not have had the fuel to reach the Indian Ocean where they are now searching.
10. The black box which begins pinging a radio signal once the device senses moisture, does so in a world communication controlled radio frequency. That transmit frequency is 37.5 khz. No other transmitting systems, world wide, are permitted to transmit in that range. In fact radio transmitters are not allowed to be manufactured that will transmit in 37.5 khz.
11. When a radio wave receiver picks up any signal at any frequency, even the cheapest of sets will display the exact frequency it is receiving. This is important because when Australia and others claim they might have received the black box ping, there would be no might about it. It was 37.5 khz or it wasn't. So why would they not be sure? The only thing they seem to be sure of is the need to cover their butts if Flight 370 makes an unauthorized flight sometime in the future.
12. Most black boxes, not all but most, will not begin pinging, even in a crash, if it is not in water. Its actual name is ULB (underwater locator beacon). "Black Box" is the name used to identify this equipment, which in itself is strange since its actual color is yellowish orange. So it is entirely possible that Flight 370's ULB has never sent nor will it ever send, even one ping.
13. While the black boxes are built to survive very extreme impacts which will protect the internal data, the transponder (unit which sends 37.5 khz ping) is usually built into the handle of the device and not internally with the data saving hardware. This does and has put the transmitter in jeopardy.
There are of course several other theories and for sure other pertinent facts that have not been listed here.
Tomorrow the plane's debris my be discovered where they are telling us it crashed. But having been well earned, cynicism abounds and at this point it would be very difficult for anyone to believe anything that is said to be found 14,000 feet under the surface of the Indian Ocean.
So there you have it. You can let logic, history and common sense guide you to a sound conclusion or you can decide that, this time, you are being told the truth.
"If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools." - Plato
If you believe in freedom, liberty, and the unfettered opportunity to prosper is as American as apple pie, think again. In reality, politics in America has deteriorated. Greed, corruption, and the lust for power by those in Washington have become the norm. The current crop of self-serving establishment leaders have blatantly abused their offices, as well as violated their oaths of office.
The ship of state has become a “ship of fools.”
It’s all about the money and power. They vote themselves undeserved pay raises; pass legislation and at the same time grant themselves special privileges; exempt themselves from the laws they pass, which we are forced to obey, and disregard whether or not those laws violate the Constitution.
Ask yourself, why would the Republican leadership collaborate with the Democratic Party to attack conservative constitutionalists. Is there an ulterior motive? Are they afraid that constitutionalists may become a majority and expose the rampant corruption pervasive throughout government?
A rotting fish stinks from the head down - beginning with the Executive office. As far as the House and Senate, there’s no difference between John Boehner (R), Nancy Pelosi (D), Harry Reid (D) or Mitch McConnell (R). Both parties have shown contempt for the Constitution as well as the American people.
The 2014 mid-term election is for the soul of our nation. Every voter must come to realize they are Americans first, regardless of whether they’re a Democrat, Republican, or Independent. We all want (or should want) what’s best for America - except for progressive/Marxists that are hell-bent on destroying our way of life.
TeamNJ, is about 'solutions’ to the problems plaguing our nation. I received numerous comments on my last article “Battle Cry” concerning RINOs. For example; “Why do I repeatedly attack the Republican “machine” and not the Democratic Party? Or how about: “Don’t you understand you can catch more flies with honey? We have to work together.” Simply put, I hate honey and I don’t compromise with flies or any other type of vermin!
The Tea Party did not abandoned Republican principles or the Republican Party. We are a Republic! It was the Republican Party that abandoned Republican principles as did the Democratic Party! I remind my so-called Republican (establishment) friends- It was the people from both parties (members of the Tea Party movement) that ushered in a Republican majority in the House in 2010, hungering for change and honest government.
As far as the Democratic Party is concerned, I’m not interested in living under a Marxist a/k/a progressive state. Neither are most Democrat voters. In 1958 the Communist Party was infiltrated and their plan to transform the U.S. into a Socialist/Communist nation was exposed. On January 10, 1963, the 45-goals of the Communist Party were recorded into the Congressional Record – Appendix, pp. A34-A35. One such Goal # 15; read: “Capture one or both the political; parties in the United States.”
It’s time Democrat voters wake up and smell the roses before all those roses smell of decaying fish. Unless you’re completely clueless, Marxists are now in control what was once your Democratic Party. The prior leader of the Communist Party USA stated that they no longer needed to run candidates; they owned the Democratic Party. Need I say more?
Team NJ has one goal: to see that Constitutionalists are elected to office form both parties and not just in New Jersey. Only candidates that totally support the Constitution are worthy to represent the people.
The Upcoming Primary Elections
Nothing is more important than any primary election. We have seen over the years how so many good people, those whom vote in general elections, abdicate their rights in the all important primaries. That my good patriotic friends is why when the general elections come along in November your choices are limited to those progressive politicians, selected for you, while you were too busy mowing your lawn.
“We the People” must protect our rich and precious heritage. Already we see the RINOs here in New Jersey spewing out the same old talking points instead of common sense solutions. As we witness the Democratic Party, once again, harp on the same warn-out divisive propaganda: racism; war on women; global warming, entitlements and blaming their opposition for everything that goes bump in the night. They are relying on the ignorance of the voters who believe their party is the Democratic Party of their fathers.
A New Beginning Begins with the Primary
Understanding the extreme importance of this June's primaries, all who read this and pass it on, should know that the individual candidates vetted by TeamNJ are dedicated to changing the face of Washington, DC. Nothing will change in Washington if Constitutionalists lose the primary. Our children’s and our grandchildren's future, now, so much more than ever, hangs in the balance. As does our beloved Republic.
Remember when God, Family, and Country reflected Americanism? Isn't it time to reclaim our heritage and restore the Constitution? If “We the People” fail to unify behind men and women of high moral character and choose not to get involved by sitting out yet another primary election, the establishment Dem/Rep carpetbaggers will continue to destroy what was once the greatest country in the world.
Those Republicans and Democrats facing challenges from candidates which have been vetted and are being supported by TeamNJ, VONJ, ATPC and NJTPC, have earned those challenges and have proven over and over again their allegiances to the establishment cronies and not the people.
In the Districts listed below, TeamNJ recommends the following candidates for Congress. They will refuse to surrender any further freedoms or liberties but instead will work to restore what has been stolen - the American Dream.
District 3, Mayor Steve Lonegan, (R) - A true and tested Constitutional activist vs Tom MacArthur, an establishment progressive who is anti-second Amendment, pro-amnesty, a tax raiser, favors the Federal Reserve controlling our money supply and has demonstrated his passion for social engineering. TeamNJ is convinced that MacArthur would be more at home running on the Progressive Democratic line instead of the Republican?
District 6: Anthony E. Wilkinson, (R) - Wilkinson is an attorney, a college professor, a man of true moral character, and a Constitutionalist. He will not be challenged in the primary but TeamNJ recommends all those able to financially support Mr. Wilkinson to do so. In the November election he will be challenging a deep pocketed progressive socialist - Frank Pallone, who is a big government advocate that claims ObamaCare should be called PalloneCare.
District 7: David Larsen, (R) - A businessman, a Reagan Conservative, a man of high moral character who is challenging Leonard Lance (R) a third generation career politician who favors cap & trade (taxes) earmarks for special interest, even more gun restriction and lastly voted to fund ObamaCare. Not the kind of representative New Jersey or the nation needs!
District 11: Rick Van Glahn (R) - A businessman, fiscal conservative, strong on enforcement of immigration laws and securing the borders. He will work to repeal ObamaCare, is strong on the Second Amendment, is a deacon in his church and is willing to stand for constitutional principles. He is challenging multi-millionaire Rodney Frelinghuysen - another big government career politician who refused to defund ObamaCare, amend the tax code, or have our borders secured. Time for this RINO to go! Donations will play a critical role in fighting against the Frelinghuysen empire!
District 12: Dr. Alieta Eck, (R) - A physician, a lady of integrity, high moral character and ethics. Dr. Eck co-founded the Zarephath Health Center, a free clinic for the poor and uninsured. What the Democrats promise and never deliver, Dr. Eck demonstrated without fan-fare. Unlike the Democrat Socialist, those voting in the 12th District would be wise to support this fine humanitarian and conservative constitutionalist. She’s what NJ needs in Congress. Not another tax and spend Democrat progressive!
TeamNJ will continue to vet candidates, review all incumbents’ records and expose those that have betrayed the Constitution and their constituents. We will only support those who will serve the people of New Jersey and the country with honor. We will be updating everyone about all establishment progressives up until and following the primary.
Vote Wisely- Our Future Depends On You
We ask all those who read our commentaries forward them to everyone you know and ask them to do the same. Remember, the media is in the pockets of the progressives. We the people must develop our own “People’s Network.” The future of our children and grandchildren, as well as our country, hangs in the balance.
April 15, 2014 ~TPATH~ Did Minneapolis’s Democrat Mayor Betsy Hodges not get it? This was no game, not dress-up playtime or Carnival. Then I wondered if she ever found occasion to dress in the ethnic clothing of her city’s other ethnicities – the Germans, Swedes, Norwegians, Danes, English, Poles, Irish, French Canadians, Native Americans? Perhaps she had not done her homework about the Somali immigrants, and it took her only 100 days into office to don a hijab for an alliance.
Surely, she has heard all the recent news about the subjugation and severe treatment of women in the Islamic Middle East; the Honor Diaries film that the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is trying to suppress; the controversy over Brandeis University’s bestowing and then rescinding an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the pressure applied by CAIR that forced Disney to cancel a movie that Muslims find “offensive,” and more. Then why would she don the quintessential symbol of inequality and bondage? The shroud of the Islamic woman.
Interestingly, the mayor has a strong admiration for Wonder Woman, the most popular female superstar in figure-hugging, stars-and-stripes regalia, with bracelets that make her invincible. Hodges is a collector of Wonder Woman dolls and has recently hung a photograph of this shining symbol of strength and sexual equality on her office wall. Rather than emulate her heroine, however, she abandoned the image with which she allegedly identifies, this icon of bravery and justice, for cowardice and deceit.
Perhaps she is a Lost Soul, one without direction, without ties to ethics or principles, unstable in today’s culture and society. Unwilling or unable to stand up for American ideologies, she too easily acquiesced to the preferences or demands of the archenemy of humankind. Whether Hodges was clueless and diplomatically inept or has emerged with a heretofore concealed agenda remains to be seen, but both choices do not bode well for the office she holds.
What began as the 7th century Bedouin woman’s attempt at privacy and protection in the desert, these shrouds have become a symbol of woman’s indignity and servitude. As Nonie Darwish so aptly explained in her book, Cruel and Usual Punishment, woman has come to represent the totality of evil and inferiority in Islamic teaching. Considered lacking in intelligence and religion, women are seen as half, and sometimes a quarter, of man's worth in a Shari’a court (Islamic law). They may be beaten by their husbands and forbidden to leave the house unless accompanied by a male relative. They may be killed by their fathers if the parent deems his honor compromised. In this oppressive society, women are the ones who preserve the honor of the male, so that he may avoid responsibility and disrepute for any unpleasantness or trouble.
The hijabs and burqas serve the purpose of enforcing obedience to Shari’a and to men. With the obligation of defending their enslavement under constant threat of their own destruction, they may become very self-justifying when challenged. Some may even try to earn honor and respect by joining the radicals for violent jihad (holy war against the infidel). But there’s more. To cultures that relish freedom, these hidden women are deemed victims of sadism, forced to endure the insufferable heat of the subtropics under layers of clothing, and prevented from enjoying the summer sun and cool breezes.
In fact, medical experts have noted that women so covered in northern climes, with less sunshine, are suffering more from osteoporosis from the lack of Vitamin D, and experiencing an increased risk of pelvic fracture during childbirth. Their newborn babies are more prone to getting seizures from the same deficiency.
Islamic law is concerned more with
raping, beating, flogging, and stoning women
than it is in honoring them.
The Shari’a demand that women be covered from head to toe is also the Islamic way of solving the problem of male sexual temptations. Rather than teach the men self-restraint and respect, the onus is on the woman to hide herself, her sexuality, her body, her shame. Tragically, because there are women who want to appear as being obedient to their god and faith, it becomes the burden of other women to withstand being hated, ridiculed, or become targets of fatwas. Women face divisiveness or derision at every turn, and their society discourages, and even hinders, women from establishing friendships, particularly where polygamy is practiced.
To have surrendered her dignity, self-esteem, pride in her American heritage and culture. goes beyond Hodges’ courtship of a voting bloc or fulfilling a promise to constituents. She is responsible for having her female police chief and city council representatives wear the hijab on February 28, proclaimed Hijab Day at City Hall. Rather than guide these new immigrants in becoming Americans, as previous ethnic groups have done, she is accepting their customs and laws over our own.
When the intruder or invader makes demands (no matter how subtle) that are met with compliance and submission from the host culture, this is conquest, not assimilation. I am deeply concerned as to how Hodges and her administration will address future demands, as they will surely be forthcoming – whether for Islamizing children in the classroom, serving only halal foods in the cafeterias, observing Islamic holidays on the city calendar, or all manner of accommodations in everyday life.
Hodges’ decision may well have been meticulously planned.
Her hijab is stealth jihad.
April 14, 2014 ~~TPATH~ Many are breathing a sigh of relief since the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) backed down in their attempt to relieve Cliven Bundy of his cattle and generational grazing lands in Clark County, Nevada. However, the situation exposed a Pandora’s Box of crimes against the Constitution, as well as the will of the American people. The list below is not meant to be a comprehensive one, but raises points we should all seriously consider:
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) set up a First Amendment Area.
Perhaps someone should tell the BLM that the entire United States is a First Amendment Area - every square inch, including the 600 acres in Clark County, Nevada.
The BLM usurped the law enforcement responsibilities normally saved for the States. Constitutionally, the highest law enforcement agent in the area should be the county sheriff, who is accountable to the voters directly. Additionally, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), adopted in 1976, stipulated that the BLM had to go through the county sheriff for any action that required law enforcement*.
This begs the question: do you know where your county sheriff would stand in such a situation? If not, perhaps you better find out.
Congress never gave the BLM this type of law enforcement authority*.
It is reported that the BLM now controls over 60% of all the land within Idaho; over 70% of all land in Utah, and over 76% of all land in Nevada*.
The only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are: Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations. Therefore, this power grab is also a violation of the Tenth Amendment, which assigns all other rights to the states*.
*Many thanks to Pastor Chuck Baldwin for drawing attention to these facts. Pastor Baldwin is not only a man of God but he is a constitutional scholar who was also the Constitution Party’s presidential candidate in 2008.
Putting the serious crimes against our Constitution aside, there are a number of other valid questions that should be raised. For instance, why don’t the feds use this manpower that they garnered to use against our own citizens against those who enter our country illegally at our borders? This is a hypocrisy that can’t be ignored. Our borders are being continually violated by illegal trespassers and our border agents are encumbered with Rules of Engagement that fall significantly short of the Rules of Engagement that the agents employed in the Bundy standoff. Does our government consider our own hard-working citizens to be more dangerous than those entering our borders illegally - especially those who are rumored to be drug lords and Al Qaeda operatives? Perhaps if you’re enemies of the state holding high-ranking positions within our own government, this point of view makes sense.
And, more frightening: why were so many of these American agents willing to point firearms at our own citizens? And…who in the chain of command issued the orders to these agents to take such a militant stand against our own citizens; where did these agents come from; who trained them; and to what division of the military or law enforcement do they belong?
Cowboys and cowgirls recover Bundy's cattle.
The stats that Pastor Baldwin reported regarding the percentages of land owned by the BLM in Idaho, Utah and Nevada are staggering. These stats are also especially troubling because they appear to be a clear indication that U.N. Agenda 21 is achieving its goals. For those that are not familiar with this United Nation’s plan to grab our land and herd us into Pack ‘em and Stack ‘em urban environments, go to “Agenda 21 for Dummies,” readily available on YouTube. All in the harmless-sounding name of sustainability, the Bundy family and others like them all across this nation, beware: the government is searching for ways through Agenda 21 and associated programs to confiscate your land. For us humans, “sustainability” is more than the intelligent preservation of wildlife and the environment; it is a nice-sounding way to strip Americans of their property rights and give them over to a global governing system. The Bundy’s and their neighbors’ First Amendment rights may have been violated, but for those in Idaho, in Utah, and in Nevada that already lost their land through over-regulation, preservation of some species of animal, or whatever clever device the government created to disguise their power grabs, more than their First Amendment rights were violated. Their God-given right to the pursuit of happiness vanished along with their property - without so much as a whimper from the rest of us.
Additionally, many reports have been surfacing regarding Senator Reid family’s interest in this land. Can it be that these opportunists have discovered how to use the regulations imposed by Agenda 21 for their own profit? One of the best things that may come of out this atrocity is an investigation into the elitist Majority Speaker of the Senate’s land power grabs and his “alleged” China connections. This is perhaps, one of the best arguments for recalling a U.S. Senator that I have heard in a while. People of Nevada, on behalf of the rest of the nation, please pick up that baton! They say every dog has its day. Hopefully we soon will hear the Reid family barking at the moon as its day is fast-approaching.
We should also be asking ourselves: what would have happened to the Bundy family if the Second Amendment didn’t exist? Would the person giving orders to the BLM agents been willing to negotiate? And…who exactly was the person that gave the order to the BLM agents? And why did he or she give the order: was it out of concern for the lives that may have been ended; was it out of concern for the potential Revolution that most likely would have ensured; or was it out of concern for the Reid family, since the debacle exposed their ChiCom connections?
The battle for the Bundy family may be over soon (at least that’s what we’re being told), but for the rest of us, it may just be the beginning. I pray that the support that freedom-loving Americans expressed during this debacle is a good sign - a sign that Americans have had enough of government power grabs and that we are just not going to take it anymore. If anything good has come out of this debacle, perhaps it’s the message all patriots just sent to our government:
Keep your hands off my property!
Keep your hands off my kids!
Keep your hands off my church!
Keep your hands off my guns!
We still have a Constitution and even though those in government may not honor it, We the People fully intend to do just that. God bless the militia, and thank God we still have the First and Second Amendments!
The article below was a response to a commentary
By TPATH contributor RoeseAnn Salinitri "Step One"
By John McClain US Marine (Ret)
April 11, 2014
As a Marine, one who entered the Corps as it was being wound down from Vietnam, and was full of those who hated the Corps, but knew there was no civilian job that would pay them to sit on their derrieres, and give them power, with only a small coterie of “true believers” who stayed on because they would not allow “Their Corps” be ruined by “know-nothings”.
I believe that was a small picture of what the whole of our Nation has fallen to, and largely for the same reason. I look at the Corps, knowing how well we have always ac/WST.aspx#complished our mission, but knowing equally well, almost all of our actions were taken in direct opposition to the principles of “a free and independent Nation”, and in keeping with “a budding empire”, and at no time in my own lifetime did we fight to secure America, but exclusively, in every case, we have reacted for the security of our oil contracts, at the behest of “corporate America”, and this has been true since the civil war.
At the time of our choosing, we gave England good cause to fear our increasing actions and demands for our rights, we began our “insurgency” long before most of us remember, and many were never taught the facts of. So many would believe we petitioned, wrote letters and asked for our rights, and then lost our tempers in 1775 and got serious. Few citizens acknowledge, even when they know, we began to fight the imposition upon individuals before records, and were seriously angry by the 1750’s, commonly attacking symbols of our “colonial status” and its subordination under that of “Englishman”.
We were not only willing to rise against imposition when it was deliberately put against us for purpose, but we understood ourselves to be a far different people from those who lived in the long ago completely subdued “Europe”, and were a people willing and able to go into wilderness and fight bears, bringing home meat, we took families into the same wilderness, carved out a field, planted, and hunted, gathering, and subsisting on our own to such a degree, our ancestors forgot they were abjectly helpless when they arrived, and were “the Frontiersmen and families” they were, only because they fought and survived, while this was true of only some.
Most Americans live in the “knowledge” we wrote a constitution with our congress and government and stuff, when we won the war, and went forward, without ever considering the actual machinations of what did in fact take place. This misguided notion has been supported without being taught to keep the truth from rearing its “ugly head”. Because of this, most Americans are questioning the capacity of rising in rebellion, having no idea just how wild that idea was when we could not live as we were any longer.
The fact we actually established no government at the conclusion of our war for independence speaks volumes in a language few can understand. Few “Peoples” have ever lived even a short time absent any formal central government, and that we did, and it failed, and we calmly chose to go into conference speaks volumes for the temper and control of those Ancestors, and their faith.
Telling the story of “The Articles of Confederation” changes most people’s understanding of our first years, and explain things which never made sense to them. Knowing we had gathered a loose establishment of rules of interaction and failed to make our way with them changes the whole impetus of “the constitutional convention”.
We sent representatives to gather in Philadelphia to reconsider “the Articles of Confederation”, and this is significant. Those men were selected to represent for the purpose of forming a more permanent and effective connection between the several states, while our children are taught by implication and anticipated inference, “our congress” wrote the constitution, with a deliberate implication it was already established, and by this justifying any constitutional issues belonging to their judgment.
The fact we selected representatives for an exacting purpose is far different than sitting legislators, writing an altered set of laws, yet the truth destroys the power presumed to belong to those elected now, and few if any ever “feel” the consent which alone makes authority exist.
What set our designing of government apart from every other, is our founders were strongly influenced by the success of the Indians, and the means of their having achieved it, forcing the last warring tribes to accede to peace by the assumption of it by the four other tribal groups, and suggesting there simply was no alternative. Out of this, which occurred long before we arrived, came the notion of “affirmative assent” as the most egalitarian way, with dissent being engaged rationally until it no longer has a logical rebuttal and the consensus must be accepted or war declared against all.
Our founders were most strongly influenced by John Mill and “On Liberty”, along with so many other strongly advocating natural law and “self-evident truth” as the sole reasonable founding stones for egalitarian society, and truly believed in the natural equality of Man, yet had come from European history, one where the choice of rule was decided by war. The notion no “law” was worthy of establishment unless it was able to be found acceptable by assent by everyone, and the debate in the tribal circle continued until all agreed, whether it be the law or rule, new plan, what ever, was good, reasonably applicable and fair, or had been concluded it simply wasn’t going to meet everyone’s acceptance, in which case either “The arm” was applied, if some tribe or leader was unreasonable in holding out, or the issue was re-stated again, and over until the stumbling blocks no longer were problems, and the whole of it was acceptable as it was, to all.
Our founders found this concept to be engaging as it dealt with an issue no previous form or means had ever been established by European means, and this was a major advance in establishing “egalitarian form”, as it provided a corner-stone which had been absent; the means of the smallest minority to get its problem upheld and fully considered and able to refuse to have it brushed away, but at the same time, a means of peer pressure established that unreasonable holding out could be overcome by moral pressure, noting this would be remembered at the next issue confronted.
Our constitution is vexing to all who don’t see themselves as “plank owners” of the Nation, and by this, their own “rule of law” they have over our collective government. This aspect on “affirmative assent” meant the whole of the constitution was argued over until no one had any issue with any aspect which they were willing to hang the whole of the operation up on. This was a new form of compromise for the purposes of government, and a major move away from European standards. I believe it is a large part which set our Nation apart.
I write this because your subject struck a nerve and a note, and it is only when one can by no means see one’s self as “part owner”, the real meaning of “sovereign” as a citizen, that one can live as a “victor” automatically, and on a daily basis. When we are subject to government, when we become subjects and not citizens, victim becomes the nature of our lives and our relationship with government. We were taught in school, no particular reason for the “dark ages”, but simply suggested it came about because our ancestors a thousand years ago, forgot technology, and it “got lost”.
Every bit of history today suggests the single reason for the “dark ages” was simply greed and totalitarian rule. As tribal rule gave way to ever increasing interconnections and governments formed, rulers each naturally tended toward ever more expanse of government and thus control, considering this the means of increasing their wealth and income. Few ever considered natural law, in particular, “the law of diminishing returns”, and for this reason, exploited their nations until there was no way one could live and farm openly, but had to hide all work and produce from the agents of the tyrant.
In such a world, all innovation is only useful for personal, nothing can be shared, except with equally starved neighbors, and then only if you know they can be trusted. Freedom, and the ownership of at least sufficient portion of one’s reapings to both eat, and have left-over for trade is the only way new ideas can ever come out in the open. The “dark ages” are exactly tied to the unfettered theft of all production by those who could produce nothing.
We have arrived at a cultural place, very similar to that one, where we have lived with other’s technology supplying our desires so long, we’ve turned all such work over to others, and in doing so, we’ve lost all the capital investment in two centuries of iron industry, over a century of steel built upon the previous, our entire technological industrial base is being turned over to the third world to lower costs more, and by this, we become a people who can only work at “serving each other”, and out of this there is no “capital gain”, but only the ongoing consumption of such capital as still is produced here, the majority now having reverted back to agriculture products, or getting there.
As a life-long metallurgist, I know that abandoning our industrial base allowed nature to catch up and what was invested has been allowed to decay and fall. We haven’t had real money since ’33, and all capital investment since that time comes with an interest price, as well as a capital price, and by this, it falls far short of real capital for long term purposes. We launched Saturn Five rockets and carried men to the moon on the foundation of an iron industry which was completely illegal when our forefathers started it, iron had to be imported, we couldn’t smelt it ourselves, but sheer demand meant we built our industry in spite of the charges. Every bit of capital that went in was gold, the only interest which was involved was dividend to those who invested their own money, and “the law of compound interest” meant that investment was more valuable when the steel industry began on top of it, than it was at the height of pouring iron for profit.
Watching the announced “last flight of the shuttle” was especially poignant to me, because it marked the end of our steel industry, something most people didn’t even know was in question or possible. Only those who work and live in the metal world fully understand, two centuries of capital investment was allowed to be buried, when we chose Japanese steel over our own, and then found Chinese steel over Japanese, because we had lost our standards far enough the dramatically lower quality Chinese steel didn’t even phase us the way the slightly poorer quality Japanese steel did when we began to receive it in the 70’s.
For most Americans, the last shuttle flight had little real meaning, it only closed a chapter in their life. One has to be deeply invested in Our Nation and the intent of providing it for posterity to realize any people can have all they desire for themselves, all they must do is be willing to pay the ultimate price, however it takes some very special planning, some very special principles to establish a free and independent way of life, and establish a means of passing it down.
We put that means to work in putting “the rule of law over government”, and defined legitimate government in terms of natural law. We have allowed ourselves to fall away from that as a society, and as a consequence, those elected have realized they could assume powers while we ignored their actions, and when all is said and done, we’ve utterly failed to maintain our thumb on government, and for that reason, it has pursued its nature and natural course and now rules over us.
When our “insurrections” were sufficient to cause the empire to send out two “ships of the line” full of troops to “quarter” among the colonists, we could either fall on our knees and beg, or stand as we had, and face the music.
We, America, have forgotten our own history, and become “the Tories” of the time of revolution. We can realize this, and choose to “guird our loins” , and face what we have allowed to gather in force, knowing it has been allowed to become what we face, and taking heart knowing it couldn’t without our allowing, or we can be victims and allow the free world to come to an end.
I would have it any other way, but having allowed our central government to go this far, we can only take to war, or accept our fate.

Editor's Note:All of our dealings with this super patriot, Marine McClain, have been educational and enlightening. His knowledge and understanding of where we as a nation have come from, as well as where we are inevitably headed, has no academic or insightful equal.
Having said that, it is understandable that anyone could turn cynical on certain aspects relating to the history of American wars and the purposes thereof.(ref: Par;1) While TPATH may agree that America's wars were about oil, they were about the free flow of it, not confiscation. It must be understood that oil is energy, energy is life. And while it also may be true that many have profited from war, without those profiteers, no war could have been won. While they profited, America's liberty prospered.
April 7, 2014 ~TPATH~ This past weekend, amid the turmoil of world economic and military confrontation, "Deface The Nation" found it important to bring on yet another "man made global warming" expert. Well, he is an economist. That makes him an expert in something. Doesn't it? New York Times' Thomas L. Friedman (any guess what that L stands for?), fresh off his support for the crushing economic policies of Barack Insane Obama, has been tapped by CBS as an expert on global warming. Go figure!
As I referenced in my letter to him, he has come late to the blame global warming for everything syndrome since all things evil, from soggy bacon to leaking basements, have been connected to it already. So I suppose it wasn't a big surprise to hear yet another expert find yet another calamity to pin on capitalism created warming. For those of you who may have missed it, God bless you. But here is what Friedman said. The civil unrest, the murder and torture which is now daily life in Syria, is happening as a result of global warming. No, really. He said that.
Mr. Friedman, the mess in Syria, as well as the rest of the known world, is the direct result of one totally incompetent, Marxist, divisive, ineligible usurper and liar, who is pretending to be President. The same guy who you supported and continue to support.
I am not including a link to that interview because I really don't want to help raise the total views to more than 25.
My letter to Thomas L. Friedman:
Dear Mr. Friedman,
I watched with interest your interview this past weekend where you found yet another crisis for which man made global warming is to be blamed. The count now rests somewhere in the hundreds. But that is another story and not what I am contacting you about.
It has amazed me over the years how so many people with perceived high IQs have allowed themselves to be told that something is true and instead of asking to see proof, all they ask is how many are in agreement with it. As if hundred people with their hands in the cookie jar are any more relevant or convincing than a ten.
Many who say they are true believers in man made global warming are actually true believers in free government cash. This should not be lost on you since you espouse most things generated through government. But that too is another story.
Although I expect this email to be subjected to the delete button
as so many others who I have challenged have chosen to do,
I none the less offer you this challenge.
Without telling me how many people agree that man is causing global warming, would you please write out in plain language and data any proof you have? This question has been proffered, by me, to many so called scientists, physicists and mathematicians. Since none of them to date have been able to point to anything other than intentionally manipulated computer programs, I suspect that you too, the latest expert, will come up empty. But please surprise me and give it a try.
The link I included above provides for you and anyone who dares evaluate it, absolute proof that man made global warming is not happening and in fact is mathematically impossible.
I have issued this challenge to many in the global warming community cabal, including the world famous Paul Davies. All of whom have been unable to deny its conclusions and nor have any attempted to provide statistical proof to the contrary. Wonder why that is?
Mr. Friedman, please pay particular attention to the calculations which show the complete absurdity of man produced CO2 having an effect on the planet's temperature.
No liberal scientist, mathematician or ECONOMIST has had the courage or the facts to contact me with a viable response. Oh, a few have responded with eloquent disparages of my ancestry but somehow that did not prove convincing.
But who knows. You my friend, expert that your are, could be the first. But you will excuse me if I don't hold my breath waiting.
March 1, 2014 ~TPATH~ During the past 7 years a very close relationship between TPATH and many of our members has resulted in the formation of WPE (We Plan to Endure). As a consequence of several years of research, training and instructions provided to us by many experts from various survival disciplines, WPE has become a formidable source for information, training and disaster preparation.
A short description of what WPE is can be characterized in the following way:
The membership is made up of a dedicated group of patriotic leaders and individuals who are well known to each other and have an extensive record of support for our Constitution and the desire to help prepare thier neighbors.
They have a varied set of professional, technical, survival and construction abilities and have agreed to provide instruction and physical application of those skills.
They have agreed to undertake the requirements of storing food, supplies, medicine, fuel, weapons, ammunition, survival and radio communication equipment for use in case of a short or long term national or local disaster.
They have agreed to help train and instruct any person or group in the skills necessary for survival regardless of whether or not they are members of WPE.
What WPE has accomplished since its inception:
An emergency communication system called the "Spider Grid", has been set up and tested. This system required that members obtain FCC radio communication licences, purchase and install short wave radios in either homes or vehicles or both. As of this date radio communication throughout the state can be maintained even if the country experiences a complete power grid failure.
WPE has given presentations to patriotic groups over the entire length and width of our state. Each of these presentations were modeled after and for the specific group it was presented to.
Our members have prepared for food, fuel and water shortages and have encouraged friends and family members to do the same.
Secured and prepared "safe zones" in the event of social or community breakdowns,
WPE has prepared and made available information packages for the following:
Steps required to obtain FCC licences, listed types of radio and equipment individuals would need to communicate in the event of an emergency.
Information on firearm laws here in New Jersey to insure that everyone who has a weapon is in complete compliance with the many laws, unconstitutional as they may be. That package includes information on what weapons one might need, how to practice and become comfortable and proficient and safe in their use.
The types and sizes of emergency generators, how to use them wisely and prudently. Also keeping them safe from marauders and thieves. Included in this package is information on how to store and rotate ethanol gasoline for use over long periods of time.
Information on how to build a safe indoor heater and stove for boiling water and cooking food.
Lists of food which can be stored for very long periods of time and how to store them using as little space as possible.
Steps to take to store drinking water and how to prepare it.
Comprehensive lists of emergency supplies one should have in his home in the event that supplies become unavailable or going out to get them is too dangerous.
Lists of what you will need to have ready to load into your vehicles in order to survive in an outdoor environment.
How to secure your home in case of forced intrusion attempts and how to prepare protection from weapons being fired into your home.
How to prepare and have ready at all times a "go bag" that can be loaded into your vehicles instantly if immediate evacuation is required.
Information on how to set up emergency locations where your children or grandchildren will go if something happens while they are at school or other places and they can't get home. Explains how to set up passwords your child will need to hear before excepting help or rides form someone you might send.
All of this information can be found HERE. It is being provided for anyone who wants it and being a member of WPE is not required.
The free download and use of this information is hereby given with no restrictions.
Note: If anyone or group wishes to apply for membership in WPE please feel free to do so. There are no fees and no financial costs, just the desire to do what you can to make WPE more effective in our efforts to help people prepare for natural and man made disasters.
Please understand that becoming a member will require a track record and history as well as a unanimous acceptance vote by existing WPE members.
Why WPE was started and why it continues.
MAN MADE THREATS
A few months into Obama's first term and with several years remaining now in his second term and what we all hope will be his last, ominous signs began to appear and continue now with an even greater presence.
Just a short course in world history would reveal the bloody, murderous and destructive nature of Socialist and Communist governments. In just the 20th Century these governments have shown no limit to the misery and torture, the imprisonment and the killing they were willing to present on their own citizens in order to stay in power. The most modest of estimates puts the death count at about 157,000,000 people.
As of this date, it would be very difficult to consider any other possibility,that the man usurping our presidency, has not been selected, bred, trained and supported by some world wide entity with Communism at its heart. There can be no other explanation for him, his policies and the tremendous damage being inflicted upon this country. It is not by mistake. It is not by incompetence. It is the intentional take down of the American way.
The reality is now, this New World Order or whatever its name is, has its claws deeply set into the control of the biggest prize in the carnival of tyranny. The lives of innocent people, the economy and our Constitution are all expendables in the quest for world domination. They will not release the golden ring simply because a term is up.
In support of this and under the cowardly eyes of Congress, the Judicial branch and mainstream media, dangerous steps are being put into place. It may have gone too far already, to stop it, short of a new revolution.
Actually, any one of the items listed below would be cause for concern, but when viewed in their entirety its impossible to see how America escapes the next few years without a nationwide calamity.
Thousands of new regulations have bankrupted companies working for energy sources such as coal, natural gas and crude oil. This has put our power grid working to full capacity and our energy supplies in the hands of our enemies.
Pipelines from Canada which could have provided huge amounts of energy has been stopped.
Terrorists have used high power rifle fire to shut down several power transmission stations. These attacks were labeled as being perpetrated by "hooligans" when its quite clear this was a test run for some future nation wide attack on our grid.
Instead of using funds to fortify the grid against this kind of attack, Obama has chosen to send your tax dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Hundreds of high ranking military officers have been removed and replaced, without the consent of the Senate.
Several hundred illegal Executive Orders have been issued that give the government control over private property, give the President the ability to impose Martial Law with no stipulation or specific reason, and the worst of all, the President can order a missile strike on an American citizen without a trial or he can have someone locked away for any amount of time without trial.
The world is in turmoil, from Iran being allowed to build nuclear weapons, North Korea threatening to invade South Korea, China imposing its navel might on Japan and Korea, Syria and Libya experiencing unprecedented murder and upheaval which has been encouraged, supported and supplied by Obama, the Ukraine is being invaded by Russia as any hope of living free of the Communist Putin is being crushed.
Obama continues now for the 6th consecutive year, creating debt in the amount of between 70 and 80 billion dollars every month. That's every month for 6 years. This money is being poured into the capital markets of the world and will have a crushing effect on the value of the dollar. Every dollar of this insane method of creating cash must be paid back. Even if this madness were stopped now, and there is no intention to do so, that bill could not be paid back for a thousand years.
China, North Korea and even Iran are experimenting with EMP weapons that could put America off the grid for years. Iran has sent ships to America's coast without a whimper of a response form Obama. The very kind of ship that could fire an upper atmosphere EMP device.
Every effort has been made by Obama to disarm as many Americans as possible. This endeavor is consistent with despots of the past who first disarmed and then slaughtered their people. If one might be foolish enough to bet that type of tyranny could never happen in America, that is a bet, if lost, would be lost at great calamity.
The government is buying ammunition at an astounding rate for non military personal. They have set up countless FEMA camps across the country and have distributed armored personal carriers to hundreds of local police forces. They are preparing for something.
While the assumption that Martial Law, economic breakdown or terrorist attack is the most likely scenario for the need to survive off the grid, natural disasters, such as Super Storm Sandy must also be considered. As unlikely as it may seem that here in the North East we need to be prepared for event other than man made, the likelihood does indeed exist.
Hurricanes, storms and floods.
Earth quakes, volcanic dust and tornadoes, very unlikely, but possible.
Tidal waves from land masses falling into the ocean or the shifting of under sea plates. Las Palmas Island is one such threat to the east coast.
Power plant failures which could cascade across the country.
Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) which are similar to man made EMPs but are caused by huge solar flares. This could shut down the communication and power grid. There has been a fairly consistent pattern to CMEs and unfortunately we are well past due for the next one.
Pandemics caused by viruses, bacteria or toxins.
