 The Betrayal
 
         Last week on the 2nd of September, President Obama sent to the city of Bangor a five-team entourage (to fulfill a policy and agenda created by President William Clinton in 1993). These officials were not sent to Maine to create jobs, or save the tax-payers money or to promote Constitutional rights; on the contrary, just the opposite!
 
            The job of the five officials was to obtain or gain consensus from selected Maine citizens to target large sections of Somerset, Piscataquis, Aroostook and Penobscot counties for a proposed 3,200,000 Acre National Park, but the Federal Officials never explained this totally to those who were purposely hand picked and invited to gain sympathy and support. What also was not explained was a plan to acquire large land tracks (to include whole towns, large and small and roads that connect them) in Washington County, Aroostook County and Somerset County to add to this National Park land grab. Obama’s officials did not reveal the real scheme, “The Wildlands Projects” which began by executive order # 12852. The Presidential order (by William Clinton) set into motion the United Nations program called “Sustainable Development” better known as Agenda 21. Yes, if your heart did not skip a beat, than you did not get that last sentence, the United Nations program “Sustainable Development”! If you do not believe me, start looking up this hideous plan to acquire land under the false premise of placing land into trust and into easements that fabricate public/private lands for conservation!
 
            This fraud is known by many citizens nation wide, but large news Medias hide what has already happened in other states National Parks land grabs. Instead, the media only disclose the most obvious first steps of this plan, which appears to the public as a utopia that is created by beneficial acts and crucial advice from big government bureaucrats. The federal and state governments than guide, help and allow citizens access to public/private, state and national reserves that are connected by controlled corridors.
 
            To help this process along, President Obama created “The America’s Great Outdoors Initiative” on April 16 2010. Enticing words are used such as: preserve working landscapes, cultural sites, parks, coasts, wild lands, rivers and streams. Words also used like: conserving fields, farms, ranches, forests, rivers, streams, beaches, and valuable natural resources are also used to distract and redirect the attention from the real agenda.
 
            Apparently the scheme of hand picking willful participants to this Bangor meeting to gain consensus, was a triumph because the majority were successfully duped. However, a hand full of Constitutionalists was in attendance, but they were not all given the opportunity to give truthful presentations. I was not invited to Obama’s “Listening Session on America’s Great Outdoors” consensus meeting, but I was asked to attend as spokesperson to my organization and to a give verbal delivery, which I did. After the meeting, many of the attendees approached me and asked for more information, which I eagerly passed on.
 
            Because this issue is fraught with hidden deceit and fraudulent agendas, it is massive, complex and confusing. Because of this, I suggest that you do you do your own search at your own pace. In the meanwhile, I am available to assist your search or to give a presentation or seminar. For now, look up President William Clintons executive order # 12852, “Sustainable Development (Agenda 21)”, “The Wildlands Project”, “The Northern Appalachian Restoration Project”, “Maine’s Headwaters Wilderness Reserve system” and “The United Nations Plan to Protect Biodiversity”, and The new bill waiting for approval H.R. 5101 “Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2010”.
 
Over the next weeks series, I will tie in the BETRAL series with Quimby’s “Anchor (baby) National Park).

The Betrayal (Continued) (#2)
 
                              Due to the overwhelming feedback and extreme interest from my last letter, I will share more information concerning the people and politics behind the United Nations policy (Sustainable Development [Agenda 21] ) to expand the current Baxter State Park to a 3,200,000 acres federal park and also to create another federal park system which takes up much of Washington Country.
 
                              I must reiterate one more time; yes this is a United Nations Program. All of the following information is history and can be obtained on line; I suggest that the readers find their own links.
 
                              The most asked question was asked, who is allowing the U.N to set policy on American soil? Ans: Al Gore convinced George Bush Senior to merge as a signatory with the U.N., so he was the first American President to sign on in 1992. For those of you that remember Bush Senior saying a “one world government”, well ‘Agenda 21’ is the plan that he had for our future. In 1993, because congress would not accept “Agenda 21” President William Clinton created executive order # 12852 to install the “Presidents Counsel on Sustainable Development”. The executive order lasted six years that was just long enough for all 50 states to adopt state and local regulations that are used to this day by LURC and the DEP. The Progressives lied about the end game and they skillfully convinced political leaders in both the Democrat and Republican parties that this program targeted only conservation ideals and as you know, politicians vary rarely read the bills, so this slid by! Call your own Federal Senators and ask them why they are supporting two bills for this September: Harry Reid’s Senate bill that allows for more money to use for “Eminent Domain”. This bill expands the “Land & Water Conservation Fund”. And Christopher Dodd’s Social Engineering bill “The Living Communities Act (SB 1619)”. In the House, the Representatives are pushing “The Wildlands Project” Bill that will transform William Clintons Policy to a new Federal Law that legitimizes the U.N.’s Agenda 21. Why are our two Senators and Representatives quiet on this bill, where are their voices on Agenda 21?
                             
                              On the local level, Maine’s Land Use Regulatory Commission has supported Agenda 21 from its inception. These above three bills if voted on favorably will fulfill the needs of LURC and the DEP to establish “The Maine land use Planning law” which is designed to create new 250ft set backs to all sources of waterin all Maine towns! Several brave political leaders wrote and supported a bill this year to repeal the “Land Use Regulatory Commission Law of 1971”. It never came out of committee because it lost by one vote going by Democrat party line.
 
                              If there is no law in Maine to follow the United Nations Agenda, why is this happening now and why have we not heard of this before? Ans: There are several reasons, first of all, the “The Wildlands Project” is so outrageous and outlandish that anyone revealing the scheme would sound like a nut job and would be laughed at. Advocates of private property rights never saw this coming and neither did many from Maine until now. Many western states have battled this scheme and its citizens have tried to go public, but large controlled newspapers and media did not cover the issue. Small town newspapers became frustrated with the lack of interest from their legislators and they have gone on line.
 
                              We here in Maine have a chance to protect Constitutional rights as do the western states and that will prove out at the polls November 2nd. I urge the voters to contact their legislators to see if they are in favor of this land grab and vote them out. I also urge the voters to contact those candidates that are running against the Progressive incumbents and find out their possible connections to LURC and the DEP, and also find out who voted to retain LURC.

                             The Betrayal (#3)
 
                              Once again I have been receiving feedback and interest especially concerning local conditions that have and will affect all of us, if something is not done soon. But first, I am not amazed to the fact that so many people in the State of Maine were not aware that the United Nations has such a great hold on some of our uninformed local and federal officials. I only have to guess that many of our elected and appointed officials do not care or do not respect us, but they fear the United Nations more than the people who elect them into office.
 
                              In my last letter to the editor, I mentioned that Maine’s Land Use Regulatory Commission (LURC) and Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) have supported the U.N.’s Agenda 21 by establishing and implementing “The Maine Comprehensive Land Use Plan”; and yes the two government organizations are forcing many towns and land owners in unorganized territories to accept 250ft set backs to all sources of water. What many ‘town folk’ do not know is that as of yet, there is no federal law that forces cities of towns to accept this plan and many town and state officials do not want you to know that this plan is being pushed by the United Nations policy and belief that our Constitutional rights need to be taken away. What the real motivation for town and city officials is ‘the proverbial money carrot’, or better known as a federal and state grant or fund; but to us, it is clearly a bribe to remove protected Constitutional and private property rights!
 
This has either happened or will soon happen in all other towns and cities. For example: The people of Lee have just received notice that the DEP has given and demanded that all towns are being forced to update their “shore land resource protection zones”. Currently, most towns recognized a 50 or 75 foot set back and in many instances because of hardships, wavers were given to many residents and they were “Grandfathered”. New proposed changes require restrictions of 250 set backs. And this time, even after hours of comprehensive work from the Lee Planning Boards re-formulation to protect its citizens, the DEP did not agree! Lee citizens will have their chance to use their first amendment rights and challenge the DEP bureaucrats at their town meeting on October 13.
 
The DEP is a department run by bureaucrats that are not voted in by the people, they do not serve the peoples will, instead they are appointed by the Governor and there function is to serve the Governor and many of the powerful and influential conservation organizations, and legislative leaders with an agenda, such as the speaker of the Maine House and President of Senate.
 
Many people have asked me: what can we do to help stop this take over of our rights and property rights? Ans: We as residents of our towns and cities here in Maine have the right to be protected and to protect our Constitutional rights as written in both State and Federal Constitutions.
In the U.S. Constitution: Amendment 14, Section 2. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privilege or immunities of citizens of the United States: nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
 
In the Maine Constitution: Section 1. Natural rights. All people are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural, inherent and unalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and of pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness.
Section 2. Power inherent in the people. All power is inherent in the people; all free governments are founded in their authority and instituted for their benefit; they have therefore an unalienable and indefeasible right to institute government, and to alter, reform, or totally change the same, when their safety and happiness require it.
 
I leave you with this thought: What right does a non-elected bureaucracy have to dictate on the Governor’s behalf and the Legislative Leaders, a mandate that defies public rights and why are these government officials and bureaucrats pushing foreign countries doctrine onto Maine Citizens?
 
I urge all Maine voters to not take this lying down, you have “Constitutional Rights”, everyone needs to go to every town meeting and verbally challenge your town officials to fight with you to maintain your rights and secondly, vote out any legislator that has a history of supporting and adopting “European or United Nations laws” in the State of Maine.

                             The Betrayal (#4)
                             
It is mind boggling that the average citizen is not aware that they have been engaged by magician like tactics that have misled the populous attention away from the concerns that really matter in our life. Instead, both administrations in Washington and Augusta have taken advantage of those who are living the “American Dream”, meanwhile they separate and control us by polarizing our beliefs and emotions. We work, we enjoy our families, we play with our toys and we expect to continue this life under the protection of our governments. This is how a freedom loving country should live, but when we sleep and do not hold or political parties to the Constitution, corruption can gently flow in, as it has. How easy it is for us to be controlled and react to sound bites that separate our economical status, gender, race, religion and yes, our political party.
 
While we lived our American dream, our attention was distracted while the administrations created a useless bulging bureaucratic government that in turn created wasteful and expensive committees, departments and divisions that have finally controlled our thoughts and boxed us into the corner. We are now controlled as mice in a mouse maze.
 
Enough is enough, together we have all been betrayed, and their own party leaders and organizers have betrayed the real Democrats and Republicans. The politicians that saw this betrayal have fought the system, only to be held back by those party leaders and organizers. Nationally, statewide and locally, there is a fire that is raging in the hearts of those who are breaking from party affiliation and are demanding their sovereignty as protected by their State and Federal Constitutions.
 
On a local level, this new awareness took shape at a town meeting in the town of Lee last Wednesday night on the 13 of October to listen to the Department of Environmental (DEP) Protection. A record number of Lee citizens, standing room only, attended this meeting expecting to hear and give commentary concerning their property and constitutional rights, but it was obvious that the DEP representative did not want verbal input (heated arguments), instead she opted to an innocuous procedure of shifting the heat and that responsibility back into the town officials hands and she would accept only written questions.
 
During a brief threatening presentation as to what the town should do to its landowners and citizens (tax-payers), she answered questions from the selectman. One interesting question asked was: can the rules and regulations change. Her answer was: it is policy that it could be every four years, but she lied, policy is not law, she did not explain that they could change regulations at any time that the DEP wished.
 
After the brief intimidation period, she left the officials responsible to impose unconstitutional mandates onto its own inhabits. It was obvious that the crowd was angry for two reasons, their questions were unanswered and the town officials were unable to come up with a plan to defeat the DEP. Roger Ek (the most vocal of the planning board mention that the town of Sangerville voted 100% against the DEP and also that over 50% of Maine towns have not complied.
 
Thank GOD for Jeff Gifford (Representative of Lincoln), he gave the first real direction of action; he said very clearly to wait until the election on November 2. For those who did not get that statement: there is an explicit movement, national and statewide to rid unconstitutional politicians who have been behind the scene that have created laws and regulations that have taken away our Constitutional rights. His statement allowed me to dovetail the fact that under the 35 years of Democrat hold on Maine, Libby Mitchell and John Martin have whipped their party to guide them to defy the rights of Maine citizens. I also suggested that we even stall to after January until new Constitutional politicians take their new oath to serve the Maine people and protect the Maine and Federal Constitution from foreign and DOMESTIC ENEMIES!

The Betrayal (#5)
 
It has been almost two months since I began the “Betrayal Series” and I have just skimmed the surface concerning the fraudulent activities concerning those who have actively supported President Obama’s “Sustainable Development (agenda 21)” and the “Biosphere Project”.
 
Many of our researchers, including my wife and I started with a non partisan approach, but when we compiled the information and connected the dots, we soon realized how deep the partisan entrenchment is that has driven the wedge into the heart & soul of our sovereignty, our GOD given rights and the supremacy of the Federal & State Constitutions.
 
Up to now, we tried to separate politics from our research, but it soon became impossible, so we briefly touched on the names of some of the politicians that are responsible for our loss of liberty and freedoms. All of the information that we have given through the “Betrayal Series” were given reference or could have been found on line by a 5 grader; unfortunately, a 5 grader could not have connected or understood how the politics fit into the mix, nor could the 5 grader understand the significance of the immediate need and how or why we need to stop the destructions of our Federal & State Constitutions at this election cycle. 
 
So, in the name of education and truth, I am throwing caution to the wind and revealing the politics as it is. We all have been savagely and willfully betrayed by many elected politicians that we trusted and thought were our friends, and because of this, they have taken advantage of our confidence, naïveté and faith. As the years have passed we have slowly lost what our founding fathers had composed in the Federal & State Constitutions. These scammers have used our emotions and beliefs of justice and fair play and they have misled our direction, they have deceived us and they have changed our focus to allow Socialistic and Fascistic ideology to replace logic & common sense. Because we enjoy our “American Dream” we trusted our elected officials to do our bidding, but we lost our way and we stepped back, fell asleep and literally gave them the farm and the power to rule and control us into a box. They are supposed to be our servants, and the appointed bureaucratic agencies were supposed to be responsible only to us and not special interest groups and those who profit from our tax dollars. We have sat back and willfully allowed our elected officials to tax us to death, chase companies out of Maine and we allowed them to defraud and divert land and property rights through the Land use regulatory commission & the Department of Environmental Protection. And we allowed them to do this under the guise that it is for “the good of the collective” and it is good for the conservation of the environment.
 
The alarm clock is ringing loudly and it is time to vote for the Constitution. This does not mean it’s a popularity contest, or to vote for a candidate that believes in your single, selfish issues. It means to vote for those who will respect the Constitution and it means to vote only for those who will protect the sovereignty of the people; an absolute and ideal that the entire Baldachy Administration did not respect, an absolute and ideal that Nancy Palosie and Mike Michaud has long forgotten, an absolute and ideal that Libby Mitchial and Elizabeth Schneider has willfully excluded from their agenda.
 
I have gone out of my way to meet with candidates that I did not know already and they have all sworn to me and have said that their pledge and oath to the sovereignty of the people will always come first and that their oath to the Federal & State Constitutions will be to the death; and I will hold them to that! These candidates are as follows: Paul LaPage, Jason Levesque, Tracy Gauthier, Doug Thomas, Jeff Gifford, Everett McLeod.
 
Please vote with the Federal & State Constitutions in you hand and in your heart, remember, your vote affects us too!

The Betrayal (#6)
 
The excitement of the election has cleared, but not our convictions to work with elected political leaders that believe in the sovereignty of the Maine people and the state. As a result to the election, many of the elected political legislators that have followed the United Nations Policy to remove private property rights through the Department of Environmental Protection and the Land use regulator Commission have been voted out.  I am sure that many of us have beliefs that we all had an important contribution to the activities prior to the election and we all need to be congratulated to what ever our level of contribution was.
On November 3, many of Maine citizens wiped their brows in relief and then they went back to their lives. Many of us knew that what we did prior to the election was just the prelude to what we need to do now. What we did prior to the election, was just laying the ground work and foundation to the unceasing and tiring work that is to begin the removal of 35 years of the unconstitutional framework, laws, rules and regulations that has removed the freedoms and liberties that were granted to us by our fore fathers that wrote the state and federal Constitutions.   
Many of us have sacrificed time and our own money and have worked very hard to reach this epic and historic point in history. Many citizens and political officials are not aware of the motivation that had lit the fire in the hearts of those who had visions that finally led to these positive overwhelming end results. We have now opened the door to a new area that will hopefully lead our governments and laws back to the original intent of those founding fathers.
What very few people are not aware of is that during these past 35years (in Maine), there was a dedicated root movement of control that can be traced back to Europe. As many of you know, I had made reference to the Communist, socialist and fascistic movement that has slowly manipulated our State and Federal laws to the point that we are now managed, restrained, restricted and ruled by our own state and federal laws; all for the betterment of other world governments and selfish “One World Order” partisans.
We now have a historic and epic opportunity to reverse the careless policies that have caused Maine business’s to relocate out of state and abandon their trade and the jobs that supported them. At one time, Maine was known for its rail transportation, its lumber & paper industries, potatoes, apples, milk and meat, fishing and canning, shoes and its textile mills. All we have left now (thanks to the past administrations) is to rely on the good will and good graces of the vacationers; and that industry is reliant on the national economy, which is also drying up!
In Maine, the Executive (Paul LePage), the Senate and the House of Representatives, have been newly elected by an obvious patriotic movement. To enhance that noble patriotic movement, we believe that actions need to take place to protect us from the United Nations policies that are directly affecting us, therefore, the state must legally remove those laws or systems that are directly forcing us to be the 50 state for job opportunity and job growth (according to Forbes Magazine).
Working with the newly elected administration, we will suggest that all connections to fraudulent conservation citizens groups, fraudulent conservation non-governmental organizations be severed that have influenced and infiltrated state agencies that presently support and follow the United Nations Biosphere Project, the United Nations Sustainable Development (Agenda 21), European or other world governments that have stakeholders status. We will also suggest that a sub committee be formed to deeply investigate this issue and follow up with legislative action that would de-fund all state funded fraudulent land trusts and de-fund all state appropriations and financing to fraudulent conservation easements, to include all bonds that were fraudulently passed on to the public for vote. We also believe that at the same time, there needs to be research as to the constitutionality of state own lands (not state parks) and subject these unconstitutional state lands for legal sale to public citizen purchase only.
We will also suggest that the 1971 Land Use Regulator Commission Act be repealed and the Department of Environment Protection Laws, rules and regulations be re-written and investigate the continual need of the Bureau of Environment Protection Laws, rules and regulations to see if there is overlap and redundancies of responsibilities.
As nothing is ever cast in stone, as always, we will remain open to any discussion, now or in the future, so do not hesitate to share any unconstitutional activity that you believe that your town may have had with any state agency or conservation organization.
The next series of articles will cover the history that led us to this quagmire and how you may help return your towns and state back to the sovereignty of the people! Please be active!

THE BETRAYAL (#7)
                                                                   01/11/11
Santa is home preparing for next year, the Crèche and the Baby Jesus is packed away, the Menorah has been placed back on its shelf and many of us are still contending with our New Year Resolutions. But as promised in the last Betrayal series #6, we have only taken the “Holiday Break” and we are not abandoning the “Sovereignty of the People”.
In the last series, we mentioned that the people’s rights under the State and Federal Constitutions would be far better represented now that we have constitutionally minded people in the Blaine house, in the Senate and in the house; and as a watch dog, research and an activist group, we are going to make sure that these rights will be preserved.
Governor LePage and leadership members of the House and Senate have hit the ground running before day one, thanks to aggressive members that did not want to waste time to remove 35 years of neglect and deceit. I have and will continue to meet with these leaders to strengthen the need for them to remember that the people are the primary and Sovereign in both of our Constitutions!
We (TAB) have been pushing for the repeal of the unconstitutional 1971 Land Use Regulatory Commission Act (LURC) and we continue work to remove the unconstitutional power and to reduce the “unscientific laws, rule and regulations” of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Already 3 bills have been submitted to repeal the (LURC) Act.
The threat of these three bills has already forced the head of the beast to rise and start crying. Those who support “The United Nations Sustainable Development (Agenda 21)”, “The Wildlands Project” and “The United Nations Biosphere Project” are redirecting the attention away from the truth. They need to use touchy, feely, politically correct, sympathetic rhetoric to make you look away from reality. The nuts and bolts of this redirecting is the last ditch effort to continue the securing and placing of 10 million acres of Maine land into “Five National Parks, fraudulent so-called “Conservation Land Trust” and fraudulent so-called “Conservation Land Easements”. Other states west of us have already suffered the “National Land Grab” and will gladly warn you of this unconstitutional scheme of defying private property rights and allowing the “United Nations” to control us through our Progressive elected officials.
Representative John Martin, Democrat from Eagle Lake is in favor of (LURC) maintaining it vicious claw-like hold on the Maine People. His claims fall on deft ears when he opposes the transfer of sovereignty back to the people through the County Commissioners who are voted into office rather than bureaucrats who are politically appointed, and controlled by politics! Representative Martin tries to make this a money issue that pathetically relates to housing for the poor. Mr. Martin makes the claim that “the counties do not want that, I can tell you that”. I personally would like to have Mr. Martin tell me that to my face during an on-stage debate, with the Maine County Commissioners and Maine Citizens in the audience.
Yes, there is a interest among the County Commissioners concerning how the transfer of how the Commissioners responsibilities and financing will work out, but I personally can tell Mr. Martin to his face that he once again has twisted this issue to suit his own agenda (maybe, Agenda 21). The Maine County Commissioners, in a survey, have only logged a concern and not a disagreement to the legislation for repeal. And as far as him talking or polling the Aroostook County Commissioners, he claims: “ I have talked to Aroostook County leadership and they have no interest and no ability and do not want to raise funds to do what would be necessary to do – basic zoning”. If I were playing poker, I would call him on that statement and tell him to “put his money where his mouth is” and ask him to show the proof (of that statement).
How do I know, well unlike Mr. Martin, I personally met with the Aroostook County Commissioners at a real scheduled meeting, with their staff, the Sheriff, and in the audience was Senator Roger Sherman, Representative Henry Joy and 5 residents and the Commissioners were all approving of the repeal of the 1971 (LURC) Act! I also met with the Penobscot, Lincoln, Hancock, Somerset county Commissioners and they too were not in opposition of this repeal, only Piscataquis had objections.
So Mr. Martin did you not think we were not out here? As governor LePage has stated, this Government is going to put people over politics, stop crying, you will not have your way anymore, get used to it!

THE BETRAYAL (#8)
                                                         01/18/11
 
In the last series #7, we mentioned that the repeal of the 1971 land Use Regulatory Commission Act would “force the head of the beast to rise and start crying.” Following Representative John Martin’s outrageous diatribe last week (Jan 10, BDN), those who were given 8 years of free range of the Blain House and in the legislature and those who followed and believed in the United Nations polices, descended on the new Governors Office, the Senate and the House of Representatives.
 
Progressive Democrats, fraudulent environmental groups, conservation organizations, Animal protection rights advocates and ‘bleeding heart liberals’ who care more for their sleazy agendas, than peoples ‘Constitutional Rights’, have already started their one sided attempts to prevent their loss of lobbying power in the legislative halls of Augusta.
 
Local unions, groups and organizations that are fearful of being exposed to the true of their betrayal are looking to their national and international supporters for economic and supportive help. New ads will begin, in due time, and they will overwhelmingly show up in the newspapers, magazines, radio and television and on the web. Not only are the adults going to be subject to this onslaught, but also to the kids on line. Also, some progressive school systems may give a supportive edge to advance their message towards our unsuspecting kids. This process may sound like a conspiracy, but these groups have already infiltrated much of what you watch and hear already and some of our school children have no idea of what they have been subject to.
 
The bureaucrats that work and run the Land Use Regulatory Commission are not the only ones that are trying to maintain their positions. Other state agencies and commissions are also under the microscope and are on the list for down sizing, lowering budgets and or revocation of the power that they once held. As most agencies and commissions are funded by taxes, these bureaucrats and their staff will be scrambling to continue receiving their share of taxpayer’s dole. Affiliate state agencies and commissions will gladly link arms to save one of their own because they know that there is strength in numbers and once one goes the route, so will go the rest.
 
Legislators and theirs staff in Augusta are already seeing the misuse of years of inaccessible and hidden information that was obscured, buried and hidden from the light of day, in hope that the Progressives would have maintained their control forever. The coin has flipped and this new administration is tearing apart layer after layer.
 
Governor Paul LePage has meet with local business leaders in various locations and last Tuesday (Jan 18) his representative has met with Lincoln’s business owners and the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. One pattern has surfaced at every meeting and that is: the laws, rules and regulations from the Land Use Regulatory Commission (LURC) and the Department of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are usually the main target and topic of discussion. Without the support of our local business a town will fail and jobs will fail with them. The LURC and the DEP know that their unscientific hold on Maine businesses is keeping Maine towns from going forward and creating jobs in the local communities.
 
So until we can abolish LURC and control the DEP, please try to support you local stores and business whenever you can.

THE BETRAYAL (#9)
                                                              01/25/11
 
Before I begin, I would like to thank the many readers of this paper for requesting more information concerning the intricate and tangled issues that have led to our state’s demise which has led to the recognition, by Forbes, listing us as 50 in the nation.
 
First of all, we are lower on the list than you really know. The United States has several protectorates and commonwealths that have virtually a statehood statues, such a Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, etc.; even during these failing economic times, these protectorates and commonwealths could be viewed as being in better comparative shape than Maine, which really places us somewhere around the 56th.
 
In the Betrayal #6, I mentioned that careless policies and hidden agendas developed by previous administrations (Democrat & Republican) had either allowed or caused Maine business’s to relocate ‘out of state’ and abandon their trade and the jobs that supported them. And, as a result, local industries and business will not risk the monies to expand and out of state industries and business will not chance the loss of seed monies to relocate and set-up their commercial enterprise. At one time, Maine was known for its rail transportation, its lumber & paper industries, potatoes, apples, milk and meat, fishing and canning, shoes and its textile mills.
 
What you may not know is that we have been invited to many organizations and groups to explain why Maine is in jeopardy. Our second seminar series named “The Betrayal, Exposing The Unholy Alliance”, we explain how the past Governors and the past Legislators, commissions, agencies and committees created laws, rules and regulations that earned this state a reputation as unfriendly to industries and business. Since the eighties, the concept to destroy Maine’s economy was deliberately planned-out by foreign and domestic leaders (and those that were easily led) that carried the cold war tactics into federal and state laws. Many of our state and federal political leaders were mislead by these deceivers, our leaders did not believe or understand how and why they were guided down this road. Our first series of seminars named “The Betrayal, Exposing The Progressives, We explained how the socialist (the Progressives) ‘commandeered’ the Democrat Party and its unconstitutional platform that placed us in bed with the United Nations. Our third seminar “The Betrayal, Your Town Government” gives the people a Constitutional direction as to how to create your own town Hall Meeting and how to repeal Unconstitutional Laws, Rules and Regulations that have taken away “Property Rights” and have caused excessive tax-rates.
 
These three seminars, if attended would have prepared local towns and cities to identify potential political leaders that were truly political servants that were ready to Constitutionally serve their constituents. Since the elections are over, the third seminar would be timely because the unorganized territories and some towns are still subject to the states LURC and DEP’s unconstitutional laws, rules and regulations. These laws can and will be abolished changed once you know what to do.
 
Before I finish, the town of Lee was dealt a horrendous blow when the people showed up to vote for the republican candidate for district 11. In Augusta, miraculously, a last minute mistake was found in papers that were filed from its last caucus, so the citizens of Lee were punished. The town Chair and the Recording Secretary both claim that the intent of the filed papers were correctly processed, but somehow, just before the election, the filed papers were found to be incorrectly checked off to not allow Lee Citizens their Constitutional Vote. If this sounds like a behind door maneuver or sleazy tactics, you may be right, but now it is too late because the town fell for the “political speak” from three Republican Leaders who skillfully convinced the voters to ignore my protest and look the other way to the challenge.
 
The town of Lee should know that they were misdirected when they were lulled to sleep by these un-elected officials, the Republican Chairman, the Secretary of State and the Republican Minority Leader. Yes I agree, the law is the law, but there are two types of laws, there are Constitutional Law and unconstitutional Law and because not all laws are Constitutional, the law that prevented the Lee citizens from voting, rightfully could be deemed unconstitutional if it was challenged. This glitch should have been removed from the process years ago, but for some reason, it was swept under the rug. The Republican and Democrat Machine are good for misguiding and directing people to their way. No one wishes to violate a law, but when their law violates people’s right to vote, they should have been on this issue many years ago.  Other towns need to learn from this travesty, but the Machine may deceive the people again and let this issue slide again!
 
To those who supported the Constitution and Me, thank you.

        THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL    (#10)                                                        02/01/11
 
Before I begin this writing I must explain that the information that follows is typical of the sleazy politics that has continuously and systematically twisted or depressed the truth from Maine voters, whether it is local, statewide or nationally. I would normally remove myself from the position as spokesperson for (TAB) if the issues were personal or political, but I have been given permission to go ahead anyway because of the blatant manipulation and diversionary tactics that had taken place (on the 22 of January) in the town of Lee at the Republican caucus, by top leaders of the party.
 
First of all, it is no secret that our organization is actively seeking to return this state back to the “law of the land” and the full intent of the Federal and State Constitutions. If the local readers have been following the “betrayal series” in the Lincoln News, it no secret that we have been revealing the conditions and issues of those who have changed and diverted the State Laws, rules and regulations away from the freedoms, liberty and GOD given rights that were intended by our founding fathers.
 
We have stated that we were actively working with Legislators, elected officials and interested citizens that believe in the honest fundamental laws and rights of Maine people. Our focus had first targeted the repeal of the 1971 Land Use Regulatory Commission Act, the return of logical scientific rules for the DEP and the return of true and honest ambitions and aspirations that had previously enticed landowners to seek the Conservation Easements and Land Trust.
 
We are now targeted and under the microscope from many legislators, elected officials and local & national interest groups that wish to stop us from revealing the truth. Many of these legislators, bureaucrats and agency personal are still in power in Augusta and they are well aware that I had been asked to run for the Republican Candidacy for district 11. Four days before the Republican Caucus (vote), a glitch was miraculously found in the filed paper work that was stored at the Republican Party Headquarters in Augusta. This glitch was unfortunately kept under wrap until it was revealed at the Lee Caucus at the last Minute before the vote was to take place; as a result, the Lee Citizens that trudged trough the snow that morning were told they could not vote. The Republican leadership was responsible for this release of information, they should have made this information public knowledge, but they chose to reveal the instructions when they arrived.
 
I was the only candidate to protest this so called glitch, which stole away the people’s right to vote. Yes, the final vote could have been tallied to my favor, but as many of the town citizens understood that my advocacy for the Federal and State Constitutions was based for the need to continue the statewide movement to send patriots to Augusta; and many Lee Citizens also new that my advocacy for the right to vote was not for my benefit, but based on the fact that many patriotic Americans over the centuries have died in vain because of the thoughtless, inappropriate decision made by the three Republican leaders that denied my request to allow the Lee Citizens the right to vote!
 
Since our last release, I have found that the Republican Chair, Secretary of State and the Republican Minority Whip had willfully misled the Lee Citizen’s by telling them that what prevented them the vote was a state law, but it was not. I have since looked into issue for many hours and after many telephone calls, it was revealed that the so-called glitch was only a “Republican Rule”, a rule that trumped the Constitution, and it was not a law! Political Rules cannot trump the Constitutional rights of the people and if these three leaders wish to represent Maine People, they had better understand that we are on to their deception!
 
            Because this election process has evolved to this point and because a Democrat Candidate has now been selected, I have been once again asked to run for this seat, but under a different status. For those citizens who asked if there could be a write in candidate and were told by the Secretary of State that it was too late, that also was untrue. This time I will run as a “write in candidate for the Republican Party Legislative Seat District 11”. As of the 2 of February, my papers have been filed in the Secretary of States office in time for the March 1 election. Let’s see this time if they could stop fate & destiny with their “Political Speak” and “Political Glitches”. Now it is in your hands, where it needs to be, let’s see what they try this time!

TOWN OF LEE Vs DEP  (#11)  03/15/11
 
At a town meeting in the town of Lee on the night on the 13 of October 2010, angry citizens of Lee came to listen to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). A record number of Lee citizens, standing room only, attended this meeting expecting to hear and give commentary concerning their property and constitutional rights, but it was obvious that the DEP representative did not want verbal input (heated arguments), instead she opted to an innocuous procedure of shifting the heat and that responsibility back into the town officials hands and she would accept only mailed written questions.
 
During the brief threatening presentation from the DEP as to what the town should do to its landowners and citizens (tax-payers), she only answered questions from the selectman.
After the brief intimidation period, she left the responsibility to the town officials to impose unconstitutional mandates onto its own inhabits. It was obvious that the crowd was angry for two reasons, their questions were unanswered and the town officials were unable to come up with a plan to defeat the DEP. Roger Ek, the most trusted and vocal member of the planning board, mentioned that the town of Sangerville voted 100% against the DEP and also that over 50% of Maine towns have not complied.
 
Before the meeting ended, I suggested that the town of Lee should “ignore and delay any further action and to stall the DEP to after January until new Constitutional politicians are elected and after they take their new oath to serve the Maine people and protect the Maine and Federal Constitution! 38 New Representatives were elected and Paul LePage was elected as Governor.
 
Apparently, the new landscape in Augusta has not delayed the DEP from continuing its course to control the town and destroy private property rights. What has thrown a barrier across the DEP’s path is that many towns are now awake and are presently fighting the “DEP’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan”.
 
On January 11, 2011, I was invited to speak to members of the Penobscot Valley Patriots Tea Party in Hampden. The subject was: “How to take back control of their town from the Hampden Town Council”. Apparently, the members of the Town Council had taken advantage of its people’s lack of attention to town affairs. As a result, the Hampden Council passed the “DEP’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan” without transparency. Consequently, today, after hours of deceit and conniving on the Councils part, it seems that the Hampden towns “HOME RULE CHARTER” will for now revert back to its 2001 Charter (Home rule).
 
Just like Hamden, the Citizens of the Town of Lee will have an opportunity to send a clear massage to the DEP what they want by voting “NO”, or tabling Article #61 at their town Meeting on the 21of March at 7:30 P.M. The article reads: To see whether the Town of Lee will approve the amended “shore land zoning” as suggested by the State of Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection. For what it is worth, now is the time to say NO!
 
Please do not let anyone convince you, or anyone in your town, that the DEP has the right to take away anyone’s Constitutional Rights for political reasons or opinions; you have the Federal & Maine Constitution on your side, please do not ignore this fact! For reference, please reread the letters to the editor on 09/05/10 & 09/18/10 called the “Betrayal #3 & #4”.
 
In the U.S. Constitution:
Amendment 14, Section 2. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privilege or immunities of citizens of the United States: nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
 
In the Maine Constitution:
Article 1, Section 1. Natural rights. All people are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural, inherent and unalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and of pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness.
Article 1, Section 2. Power inherent in the people. All power is inherent in the people; all free governments are founded in their authority and instituted for their benefit; they have therefore an unalienable and indefeasible right to institute government, and to alter, reform, or totally change the same, when their safety and happiness require it.
Article 1, Section 15. Right of Petition. The people have a right at all times in an orderly and peaceable manner to assemble to consult upon the common good, to give INSTRUCTIONS to their representative, and to request, of either department of the government by petition of remonstrance (strong objection & opposition), redress of their wrongs and grievance.
Article V111. - Part Second. Section 1 The inhabitants of any municipality shall have the power to alter and amend their charters on all matters,
 
I leave you with this thought: What right does a non-elected bureaucracy have to dictate, on some of the Legislative Leaders behalf, a mandate that defies public rights and why are these government officials and bureaucrats pushing foreign countries doctrine onto Maine Citizens? Your legislators are not going to help you on this matter, you have to stand for your own rights, so stand tall or you will have no reason to complain latter when they force you down. I urge all Maine voters to not take this lying down, you have “Constitutional Rights”; everyone needs to go to every town meeting and verbally challenge your town officials to fight and stand with you and for you to maintain your rights. And secondly, to stop this from happing again, vote out any legislator or town leader that has a history of supporting and adopting laws against Maine people.
