MN Cities consider dumping Progressive Arrogance with return to Citizen Review of Police

CitizenReviewBoard07252016The Progressive Rag, the Minneapolis Star and Sickle, earlier this week wrote an article on the return of citizens to Police Review Committees. Apparently it was so controversial, they have made it extremely difficult to find online.  Lets take a moment to work on creating a truer common Perspective of Reality so WE THE PEOPLE can unite against our Government and hold it accountable.

About the time of the American Revolution (1776), the Country’s Founders warned that government must be constructed with the nature of man in mind or it was doomed to failure.

John Locke summed up the nature of man as:

“being tolerance with a tendancy towards reason, but who can be selfish”

The Founders’ perception of the nature of man perhaps is best summed up in the Cato Letters:

“All People[men] have free will and are not virtuous by nature”

Thus our Founder’s constructed our government with “Checks and Balances, Transparency and Accountability”

Enter the Progressives, circa 1900.

Similar to how the “Left” accused the TEA Party Movement of being funded and the brainchild of the Koch Brothers, The Progressive Movement was actually the brainchild of the Wealthy. The Wealthy grew tired of government being transparent and accountable to the masses.  The Media “MuckRakers” of the day, drove the Wealthy Trusts up the wall.

The wealthy trusts had the Progressive Movement promote the idea that:

“The Nature of Man is to be trustworthy and altruistic”

From this pile of manure came the idea that the Progressive educated elite, being trustworthy and altruistic, should be allowed to make decisions on behalf of the masses without accountability to the masses. (See also Social Darwinism)

This began a long trend of removing transparency and accountability to the masses in a wide variety of Government Agencies. The Police, Judges and Lawyers among them.

Of course, in much the same way a dam built on the premise that water runs up hill must fail, so must a government based on some other than actual human nature.

Without the transparency and accountability of citizen oversight, Law Enforcement across the country fell into systemic corruption. Its only human nature to protect those who you work with everyday, especially when one day you might need some “quid pro quo”. See the movies “The Untouchables”, “Lawless” and “Serpico” as evidence of this writer’s assertions.

With tensions rising and the two alleged major political parties using them for political purposes, American Law Enforcement has been forced to consider returning to a large presence of civilians to rebuild trust between Law Enforcement and the Civilian Community.

It just is Common Sense that average citizens, being outside, impartial “Finders of Fact” will most often find the actual truth, rather than cave to politically machinated results.

This writer would just ask you to never forget that it was the Progressives that removed the civilian oversight in the first place. And if the Founders were still around, they would be able to say, “We told you so.”

One last quick comment, shame on the American Main Stream Media not covering this in a color blind manner. And shame to the politicians that try to spin these events for political gain. In each of these events the the only possible results should be right, wrong and honest mistake/human error.

There are good and bad people in every group of people, regardless of what characteristics you use to define it. Once the honest and truthful determination of what happened is determined, the only way the event should be framed is in a colorblind manner of good people against bad people, and/or sadness for tragedy out of honest human error and a resolve to work  to avoid future tragedy.

Those were my thoughts.

Thank you for your time.

Halloween 2015: What are Americans most afraid of?

Halloween 2015: What are Americans most afraid of?

Halloween 2015: What are Americans most afraid of?

Halloween returns bringing with it the annual tradition of frights and fears, costumes and pranks as well as Tricks and Treats. The question is, what are Americans most afraid of these years.  One would think this Halloween would be like any other. The average American would guess the usual menu super natural frights such as ghosts, goblins, demons and Zombies. (Judging by Hollywood Movie and TV program offerings)  Or, judging by the stereotype of women and city slickers, one might guess things like spiders, mice and bats.  In most years and, on most Halloweens, those would seem to be safe bets.  But alas, this Halloween you would be wrong with those guesses.

This Chapman University Survey of American Fears (2015) recently announced the results from this years Halloween Season Polling. This year our American Government is the source of two of the top five fears of Americans, with Government Corruption striking fear in the hearts of nearly 60% of Americans.

  • Corruption of government officials (58.0%)
  • Cyber-terrorism (44.8%)
  • Corporate tracking of personal information (44.6%)
  • Terrorist attacks (44.4%)
  • Government tracking of personal information (41.4%)

Now this writer is no politician or government expert, but should Government Corruption be the number one issues of the 2016 Election Presidential Debates?  Yet, this writer has heard little to nothing about government corruption the political debate thus far, nor even in the 2016 Election Presidential Debates to date.  How is this possible?

Its seems Americans are to believe the Main Stream Media is unaware of Corruption in American Government.  Even then, how is it possible for our elected officials, or at least the leadership of the Republican National Committee (RNC )and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to not be aware of some degree of Government Corruption.  How is it possible that Government Corruption has not been the mainstay of the Election 2016 Presidential Debates to date?

Now, again this writer is no expert, but doesn’t 58% of Americans placing Government Corruption as their number one fear, illicit some level of concern from our elected officials?  These folks who are supposed to represent us. Have their been some high level top secret Government meetings to address this concern? Have the Election 2016 Presidential Candidates gotten together and discussed this crisis in confidence the American People have in their Government and Politicians?  Correct this writer if he is wrong, but in an election wouldn’t any candidate receiving 58% of the vote be considered as having won in a “landslide”.

In fact, this writer has written many credible articles of his particular experiences and knowledge of government corruption. However, Main Stream Media refuses to print them. This writer is instead forced to post them on blogs and “Tweet” and “post” them in other Social Media.  )Perhaps that is why this writer has 77000+ followers on Twitter.) The fact of the matter is that our Main Stream Media is complicit with corrupt government officials in censoring the news of government corruption. (This despite Main Stream Media Fourth Estate obligation is to keep government transparent and accountable.) Again, this writer is aware of government corruption from personal experience and investigative research. This writer also has first hand knowledge of the censorship by Main Stream Media of his well documented articles exposing government corruption.

“The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by those who resist it!”

John Hay (1872), Private Secretary to President Abraham Lincoln, Secretary of State (1898-1905), Political Architect of the Panama Canal

Clearly, if our government cared about the distress and angst they were causing their constituents, they would not commit this acts of government corruption in the first place.  Further, if politicians cared what WE THE PEOPLE thought of them, they would at least go through the motions of pretending to care and appearing to address the issue of government corruption in a forthright manner. (But in fact, not only does our Progressive Government not care, creating stress and duress amongst their constituency is desired goal and affect. It is part of the Progressive philosophy of managing and manipulating WE THE PEOPLE like livestock. But that is a topic for another article Main Stream Media won’t publish. See Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for answers to some of your questions along this line or read Hillary Clinton’s 1969 College Thesis on Saul Alinsky.)

All that having been said, it is this writer’s advice to his fellow American Citizens that they contact their elected officials and let them know how they feel. The one and only one Progressive Tyrant Class pretending to be two major political parties views your silence as consent to anything they do.  Go to their public appearances and confront them. My advise is to observe “proper decorum” for at least two months.  If they haven’t satisfactorily addressed your concerns within two months, they have no intentions of doing so.  (Hundreds of Minnesotans have asked every year since 2005 for a hearing dedicated to receiving evidence and testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary. And every year we have been refused.) After 2 months, elected officials have “play book” handed down over the years from politician to politician on how to give you the run around.

Finally, at 58% of Americans living in fear of Government Corruption, the problem has reached the level where it requires and demands presidential action.  As has been said, government corruption should be the number one issue for all Election 2016 Presidential Debates. Demand your preferred political party make government corruption part of the rest of the Election 2016 Presidential Debates. If they don’t respond, take to Social Media and out them.  Participate in the Twitter exchanges during the rest of the Election 2016 Presidential Debates. And for gosh sake, grill our Federal and State Legislators, Executives and Judiciary.

Again, this 1 Progressive Tyrant Class pretending to be 2 major political parties views your silence as your consent. Remember and take heart in knowing you are not alone. At least 58% of your fellow citizens identify government corruption as their number one fear. This writer personally takes heart at knowing that at least 58% his fellow Americans share his view of our corrupt government.

WE THE PEOPLE surround them. Together WE THE PEOPLE can force government transparency and accountability.

Those were my thoughts.

Thank you for your time.
