McCain and Treason

As a teenager I learned an invaluable lesson from Ayn Rand’s writing: If your ideas aren’t bearing fruit, you have to “check your premises!”

Mike White’s premise; “If Senator McCain had the okay from Congress as a body, or the president through any means, then, he’s home-free.”

Checking this premise: Does the Constitution, as framed and adopted by the Founding Fathers, as representatives of their respective states and the sovereign citizens thereof, authorize Congress or any president to commit acts that meet their definition of “treason against the United States?”

No. It does not! Treason is treason: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. . . .” Art.III, §3, Cl.1, Constitution for the United States of America (Emphasis added)

Carrying the premise to its conclusion, IF Congress or the president sanctioned (as in “approved”) McCain’s blatantly treasonous actions, then, the consenting members of that Congress and/or that president are all guilty of treason right alongside McCain. And, if he should “hang for treason,” they must all “hang together!”

If, however, his actions have been truly independent of Congress and presidents (including any possible actions by the CIA or the DoD), then McCain must be charged by the DoJ, tried before the Judicial Branch, by original jurisdiction in the supreme Court—if such Exception is in place—and in accordance with Congressional Regulations (Art.III,§2,Cl.2). If found guilty, he must be sentenced to the appropriate punishment, as declared by Congress in accordance with Art.III,§3,Cl.2—if that be hanging, then so be it. . . .

FURTHER, in the “immortal words” of Santino (Sonny) Corleone: “We need a wartime conciliary! . . .” (The Godfather)

THEREFORE, It is incumbent upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions—or, should he continue to fail to do so, upon President Donald Trump—to order a proper investigation, and upon confirmation of the treasonous facts, to bring the appropriate action before the Court, in pursuit of justice for We the Sovereign People of the United States of America!

FURTHERMORE: It being highly unlikely that the U.S. Senate under the control of Establishment RINOs, will perform its duty under Art.I,§5,Cl.2, and expel their consort McCain, it is then incumbent upon We the Sovereign People of the Great State of Arizona to demand of our state government action setting-in-motion the removal of John McCain from OUR United States Senate Seat!

Since 1865, Our Public Education Is Not Congruent with Our Founding

As I contemplate the constitutional foundations and unconstitutional prior restraint aspects of Arizona public school system journalism classes and the subject legislation—AZ SB1384—I realize that none of us are actually answering the question of how to resolve it.

The solution is to recognize the basic tenet of public school education in America as it was allowed to develop outside the purpose of representative governance in our nation. The concept of We the People establishing and maintaining a school system through our state governments—with surreptitious control by the national government beginning in 18651, and coming fully out-of-the-closet with President Carter’s creation of the cabinet-level Department of Education in the late 1970s—is not congruent with the principles upon which the United States of America are founded.

This is the underlying cause of the state in-which we find our public “education” system today. The more governments control “education,” the less it is maintained “of the people, by the people and for the people.” It is no longer administered and controlled for our individual children, but, for the special interests, and those in-power, in governments—from the local governing board, county and state levels, to the national level.

Have you ever wondered why the office of the state superintendent is called “of public instruction,” and not “of public education?” The reason is the same as I was expounding upon the other day; the purpose of the progressive movement behind the takeover of the concept of public “education” that made huge inroads beginning in the mid-1860s, was, and continues to be, to gain control of American minds and productivity through “instruction,” AKA: “indoctrination,” as opposed to “education,” or, “teaching.”

Over time, the progressive philosophers have achieved near-complete success in transforming our citizenry and our nation to an oligarchic collectivist state, in collusion with technocratic crony capitalists.

This state is what has brought us to pupil and student public school system journalists being shackled and stifled by prior restraint at the hands of their “advisers.”

The only way public-funded and controlled “education” can actually become free again is by returning the power to the parents and others who have our children’s freedom to exercise our Liberty under God as their paramount goal.

The solution to the problem is to educate the parents and others as to what is happening, and that they are the ones who can and must resolve the usurpation by public school system employees of power they do not lawfully hold.

Parents—with the assistance of other citizens—living in the jurisdiction of a public school (district, charter, reservation, or “?”), must exercise their inherent God-given right to direct their children’s education. This right is actually recognized and codified in A.R.S. 1-601 & -602. But, government has been allowed to ignore it as long as We the People are ignorant. Regardless of any judicial ruling to the contrary, parents have the right to direct their children’s education, health care and other aspects of their lives.

Therefore, the solution is for parents and other citizens to demand pupil and student right of free expression pursuant to the Constitution of Arizona, Art.2.§6, and Title 1-601 & -602:

  • In behalf of high school pupils: beginning with advisers and administrators, then the local governing board, possibly county superintendents, on to the state superintendent of public instruction, then in the AZ State Supreme Court, pursuant to Article VI.§5(1), if necessary to obtain a writ against the superintendent.
  • In behalf of post-secondary students: beginning with advisers and administrators, proceeding to appropriate boards and on to the superintendent of public instruction—who is the highest education official of the State of Arizona—and then to the State Supreme Court, if necessary.

This is the only constitutional solution to prior restraint of pupil and student journalists in Arizona, and these journalists would be best served by their parents and other citizens rising to defend them within the public school system.

Other than beginning an amendment to deny the right of free expression to the pupils and students, if that is what Arizonans really want to do in opposition to the First Amendment protections!—The only constitutional remedy that could be enacted by the State Legislature is one that recognized the rights already protected by the First Amendment, the State Constitution and the Arizona Revised Statutes. Such an enactment would ideally codify punishment for those advisers, public school administrators, local governing board members who vote to uphold violators, and—depending-upon how far up the food-chain the complaint travels—county superintendents, and the state superintendent of public instruction who are imposing and/or protecting journalistic prior restraint.

The bottom line is: Prior restraint of public school system journalists is already unconstitutional and unlawful; Parents must protect their children by reclaiming their power! They must demand the eradication of journalistic prior restraint from our public schools

As university student journalists, you have the platform to serve the Citizens of Arizona well by offering a thoroughly objective analysis of this crucial constitutional question in an honest and courageous work of student journalism. I know you will rise to the occasion!

Thank you for your desire to hear and present all sides of the question. I do anticipate seeing your end-product!

1. EDUCATION ACT OF 1865

AZ to Remove McCain for the Good of the Nation

I agree that we could Recall him under the AZ Constitution, Art.VIII (8)! We also have a statute that precludes him having been on the ballot beyond a certain number of times. (I don’t recall Title and Section right now, but it is there. Apparently, we must be afraid to enforce it. . . .)

Yes, it is up to We the People of our Great State of Arizona to determine the method for removing our Members of the U.S. Congress! We just have to invoke our right and power by acting with the method we have chosen!

Regarding impeachment: We the People did not delegate to the federal government, the power to “impeach” a Member of Congress. Impeachment occurs within the Congress for removal of “The President [the Chief Justice presiding], Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, . . .” Art.II.§4. (See below regarding the federal judiciary.)

However, we did delegate: “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.” Art.I.§5.Cl.2.

So, if We the People could convince two thirds of the Senators to expel John McCain, Arizona, the Nation and the world would be better off!.

There being no other provision delegated by the States to the federal government for removal of a Member of Congress, nor prohibited by it to the States, the 9th & 10th Amendments apply.

Protected by the 9th Amendment: The “right” to remove a Member of Congress from office is “retained by the people.”

Protected by the 10th Amendment: The “power” to remove him is “reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Hence, although he cannot be “impeached,” John McCain MOST CERTAINLY CAN be removed by the State of Arizona, or, by We the People of Arizona!

Another plausible, but unlikely, remedy to John McCain’s outrageous and arguably treasonous behavior would be for President Trump and Attorney General Sessions to realize that he has crossed the line intended to protect our Nation from citizens who take it upon themselves to attempt to influence foreign governments, and has violated the spirit of the Logan Act (1799). This Act has been in the News a lot lately (See the relevant text below).

I submit that among the many audiences of his arguably treasonous declarations—if not specifically “any foreign government”—are undoubtedly included officers or agents of foreign governments! What would otherwise be the point!? [I was glad to see that the Nation has not forgotten that we have such a law, even though no one seems to have the courage to invoke it whenever it has clearly been violated!]

From what I’ve heard, John McCain’s actions have escalated beyond protected freedom of speech!

Further, the prestige afforded him by the Great State of Arizona by virtue of OUR Senate Seat he holds, does not exempt him from responsibility and accountability for these and other actions—including his apparent aiding and comforting of the enemy in Syria and Iraq—that could quite rightly constitute violations of Art.III.§3. “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. . . .”
* * *
I need to clarify that my treatment of the subject of activist federal judges, titled, “Good Behaviour!” addresses the constitutional clause that the Framers applied only to the federal judiciary, who have been acknowledged as impeachable. The Constitution does not specifically state how federal judges can be removed for not continuing in Good Behaviour. But, removal is certainly implied, and it is logical to infer that this action is also effected through impeachment by the Congress.

Being then impeachable, we need to invoke the Good Behaviour Clause of Art.III. against activist judges/justices who issue unconstitutional orders/decisions and expect We the People to suffer in perpetuity, bound by them!

* * *

The Logan Act, currently codified as: 18 USC §903:
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. . . . (Emphases added.)

“Good Behaviour!”

The Constitution does not give the federal Judiciary authority to override an Executive Action. The Executive Branch needs to stop submitting to judicial tyranny. It is time to tighten constitutional chains. The Constitution gives us the means to “term limit” the federal Judiciary: Invoke the “Good Behaviour” clause to rein-in those who usurp power to advance their own subversive tyrannical agenda. Judicial activism violates the Constitution and standards of Good Behaviour. It is, by logic and reason, impeachable. There is nothing to the contrary in the Constitution; therefore, We the People being sovereign, the right is inherent in US to demand removal of the offenders.

Thomas Jefferson on the federal Judiciary’s power usurpation: “Nothing in the Constitution has given them [the federal judges] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them. . . .” (Letter to Abigail Adams regarding Marbury v. Madison, September 11, 1804) “The great object of my fear is the Federal Judiciary. That body, . . . is engulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of that which feeds them.” (Letter to Judge Spencer Roane,1821)

“The original error [was in] establishing a judiciary independent of the nation, and which, from the citadel of the law, can turn its guns on those they were meant to defend, and control and fashion their proceedings to its own will.” (Letter to John Wayles Eppes, 1807) “You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. . . . The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.” (Letter to William Jarvis, Sept. 28, 1820) JeffersonOnJudicialTyranny

Note: “Good Behaviour.” is intentionally spelled with the British spelling because that’s how it’s spelled in the Constitution.

Common Core – what it is used for!

Common Core – the American application of the more notorious communist (collectivist!) practice of diagnosing dissenters who speak-out for Liberty as mentally ill. Their treatment being confinement to mental hospitals for active immersion in efforts to brainwash/deconstruct/reconstruct/indoctrinate them “back to health and sanity!” In the USSR, it was called, “The Gulag.”

In a nationwide expansion of this diabolical practice in America, the technocrats and classic collectivists have designated all children—especially those raised by Liberty-Loving Parents (AKA: most-often, Christians)—as mentally ill from conception to adulthood, thus requiring active intervention by government and its Fellow-Travelers to purge the principles of Liberty and shackle them with the bands and chains of evil that we call collectivism!

The goal being for public schools and all “educational” facilities to become outpatient annexes for “treating” and “curing” all American Children of the disease called, “American Liberty!”

Common Core – We Have to Stop this Progressive Virus

The problem with SAT and ACT is that, by now, they are Common Core-aligned! Our American Century arose without imposed “educational standards.” Then, America’s decline was precipitated by the imposition of technocratic collectivist-imposed “standards!” If places of “higher learning” require testing to select students, let them use true academic tests, not behavioral scientists’ computerized adaptive learning assessments, and data-mining!

If a teacher can’t evaluate the learning progress of his pupils, he doesn’t belong in the classroom!

We Have to Stop this Progressive VirusCertified teachers have been taught to instruct “students,” not to educate “pupils,” which goes together with teaching to the test. Yes, “educators” have known for decades that when there are imposed arbitrary “standards,” and teachers are arbitrarily evaluated according to their pupils’ success or failure to meet those standards, they will lose any ability to truly teach, as they fear not meeting the artificial bar. They will ultimately succumb by teaching to the test!

Their pupils suffer accordingly!

It is like the Biblical Commandments—the Law—which men cannot follow perfectly. They were given to the Israelites to show that men cannot keep them, so they are actually a measure of how much SIN men commit, not what high-falutin’ “Standard” can be attained!

The standards that have been massaged over-and-over for decades, until we arrived at the grossly invasive and inappropriate requirements of the Common Core Agenda, are now being metamorphosed into even worse attempts to prescribe every aspect of “instruction” that has NOTHING to do with a human child actually “LEARNING” how to THINK, envision and create any manner of human endeavor, while being guided by God and his internal value system. Instead, he is restricted and channeled into a narrow path, to live life without experiencing all that God intended for him alone, in order for him to learn, grow, & embrace and ENJOY LIFE in Jesus Christ, rather than just existing from one day to the next working in a dead-end job until his ignominious End!

The bottom line is, when a human being is truly “educated,” he is FREE to CHOOSE his own path, or paths, through Life, and to change one path for another when he chooses. This is the only way he is ultimately free to live, learn and GROW in his lifetime. The Common Core Agenda is fully-intended to stifle and eliminate the ability to grow beyond the one path selected for him by technocrats, behavioral scientists, and their minions!

This is not about personalities! It is about who will PROTECT THE CHILDREN from the EVIL that is the Common Core Agenda! We must choose those who UNDERSTAND the State & Federal Constitutions, and the statutes, and the purpose of each! Or, are WILLING AND OPEN to UNDERSTANDING and implementing action that upholds and fully applies them! The Children have no recourse unless we right what we have done wrong in our selections during campaigns and in the voting booth!

We must choose those who understand management in their campaigning AND in effecting the authority, power, responsibilities and duties of their offices through wise and capable management of resources and time for the highest benefit to every child!

And, we MUST choose those who have “Fire in the Belly,” without which they will not withstand the inevitable tempests and quakes that threaten to uproot them from their righteous paths. Without passion for Right over Wrong in the TRUE interest of the Children, they will not stand in the courage of their convictions.

Time To Get Off The so-called Federal CHOICE TRAIN

Common Core “Standards” is Charter School Applications

Thanks to Vicki Alger for finding the 2017/2018 Arizona Charter School Application on the “AZ State Board for Charter Schools” Website!

A document search found the Common Core re-brand: “Arizona(‘s) College and Career Ready Standards” (ACCRS), invoked by name at least ten times—on pages 8, 25, 28 & 29. Examples from pages 8 & 28 [Emphases added]:

Terms to Know
Required Standard: The specific Standard from Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards – English Language Arts or Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards – Mathematics, or specific Performance Objective from the Arizona Science Standard identified in the application to be used in the curriculum sample for a given grade level and content area. (First found in Section A.6.)

Educational Plan
A.6 Curriculum Samples
Applicants must submit curriculum samples to demonstrate capacity to provide quality instruction in English Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Mathematics, and Science aligned to their Program of Instruction and the Required Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards.

az-school-choiceThe numerous other instances of “Standard(s)” and “standard(s)” throughout the Application requirements clearly refer to the same ACCRS, re-branded Common Core Standards.

So, School Choice between district schools and charter schools is just a choice between different flavors of the same Common Core Cool-Aid — unless a particular school is not meeting its contractual obligations.
