BDN, Mike Tipping v. Maine Governor Paul LePage

BDN reports “This summer, there was a brief media furor over revelations that Gov. Paul LePage met eight times with members of a controversial group called the Constitutional Coalition. Attendees at the meetings said the governor took extensive notes. So, the BDN asked for them. In response to a request for the notes under the state’s Freedom of Access law, the governor’s office sent one page of handwritten notes to the BDN.

The notes mentioned a supposedly disappearing 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution six times, The Titles of Nobility Amendment.

For some, like members of the Constitutional Coalition, the term “esquire,” which refers to lawyers, is a title of nobility. That explains why “thirteenthers” — as those who seek to restore the Titles of Nobility Amendment are known — hold special contempt for lawyers, judges and the state and national Bar Associations. All of these groups are mentioned in LePage’s notes.

The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution ended slavery.

Liberal blogger Mike Tipping, in his book “As Maine Went,” tied the coalition members to the Sovereign Citizens, a group that the FBI put on a national watch list.”

With all the all the negative attention, misinformation and lack of justification/evidence of the statements made by Mike Tipping in his book and his posts relative to “conspiracy theories” and reported by the BDN, here is food for thought that legitimizes the concerns/views of Mainers who have spent years researching.

None of the mainstream media reporters ever stated that they read, or studied, the original Constitution of Maine (1820), or compared it with the current constitution.

Neither the media, nor Tipping, defined a “sovereign citizen.”

What “conspiracy theories” did the Constitutional Coalition bring to Governor LePage?

How does the media/Tipping justify that the 2012 Maine Criminal Justice Academy training manual is “correct in its assessment”?

How has the media/Tipping determined that this group was not correct with their view of Maine’s government being unlawful?

What is their knowledge of the State of Maine’s 1875 Resolve?

What is their knowledge of LD 1564, “Resolve, Approving the 2013 Draft and Arrangement of the Constitution of Maine Made by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court and Providing for Its Publication and Distribution”?

How is LD 1564 not repugnant to the original constitution?

Where does it state in the original constitution of Maine (1820) that the constitution my be “codified”?

Mike Tipping was asked these questions, but failed to respond. By his failure to respond, he mutually agreed that  he was unable to answer the questions, thus unable to justify the statements made in his book and his posts relative to “conspiracy theories.”

Mike Tipping was invited to share the stage, in front of all news-media, with members of the Constitutional Coalition, but refused.

Why would Governor LePage’s staff advise him not to meet with the members of this group?  Governor LePage was criticized for meeting with these people, “entertained their delusional thoughts and gave these people a voice.”’

Since Governor LePage ran his original campaign on the constitution, (and people before politics), one could assume that he was really interested in what these people brought before him, since he met with them several times. It is also “par for the course” for legislators to be unresponsive when they are not as educated as the person bringing forth an issue to them, or they are being controlled. “Maine Went” long before Governor LePage.

“The denial of the truth does not invalidate the truth.”

In an e-mail from Mike Tipping he stated “I’ll tell you the same thing I’ve told the other members of the Constitutional Coalition: If anything that I’ve written is inaccurate, I’m happy to retract and correct it. If you have evidence to that effect, please let me know.” Would you say he (and BDN) has much retracting to do?

Why would Governor LePage’s staff advise him not to meet with the members of this group?

Who truly presents a real and present danger?

It is Maine’s only hope that Governor LePage stands by the constitution and the people will stand with him.

People of Maine should be thankful for the great researchers we have here.

Gov. Paul LePage Is On The Right Track With Changes To The Attorney General’s Office…But He’s On The Wrong Train, click here.

Published in: on November 22, 2014 at 3:08 pm  Leave a Comment  

Gov. Paul LePage Is On The Right Track With Changes To The Attorney General’s Office…But He’s On The Wrong Train

BDN reports “Gov. Paul LePage on Thursday outlined a second-term agenda that ranged from reviving welfare reform proposals that have previously failed to a new initiative aimed at weakening the attorney general’s power.

Changes to the attorney general’s office. LePage and Democratic Attorney General Janet Mills have clashed repeatedly since she was elected to the post two years ago when Democrats regained legislative majorities. LePage said he will pursue legislation to make the position — and possibly the state treasurer and secretary of state, which are also elected by legislators — subject to a statewide vote.”  Read more HERE.

Having a state-wide vote of the attorney general would be in violation of the original Constitution of Maine (1820), ARTICLE V. PART FIRST. EXECUTIVE POWER. Section 8. The only lawful process to achieve the Governor’s goal is for Governor LePage to declare the 1855 resolve to be unlawful as well as null and void. This is the resolve whereby the legislature stole from the Executive department the ability of the governor with the advice and consent of the council to nominate and appoint the attorney general. This is an Executive department function as provided by the original constitution. The attorney general has been unlawfully elected by the legislature since 1856 when the 1855 resolve went into effect.

1855 Resolve

We can hope that the legislators, and the Governor, read, study and understand the constitution in which they took their oath to uphold. Then they, and we the people, can get on board with Governor LePage when the train leaves the station.

Thanks to Lise Dupont for her great research!

Finally Fair Reporting! Phil Merletti And Wayne Leach Explain Their Concerns

Credit given to The Sun Journal and Staff Writer, Mark Laflamme, for reporting “the other side of the story”, HERE.

Listen to Phil and Wayne explain their concerns:

Why they feel sorry for LePage.

A warning about martial law.

Why it’s dangerous to be called a sovereign 

They don’t have the consent of the people

If it is repugnant to the constitution..

Where the authority comes from

Who calls it repugnant?

How to reverse repugnant laws.

Was LePage threatened?

The Legislative Council is the problem.

The BDN did report “LePage’s office put out a statement defending the Constitutional Coalition from any association with terrorism. Merletti also told the BDN that the Constitutional Coalition had given up speaking with LePage because he had become too dependent on the views of his lawyers.”

Has Phil “hit the nail on the head”?

Commentary courtesy of Leon Bard:

Time for the People to Become Educated

“I’m always amused by the comments posted in response to news stories. Some people are informed, some are uninformed and some are just plain misinformed. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I prefer to be informed. Becoming a victim of “the system” is probably one of the most effective ways to getting an education in reality. I have gotten an eye opening education through my own life experiences. Things are not what they seem. If you are uninformed or misinformed, you are part of the problem. If you are informed, then you need to stand up and speak up. Wayne and Phil are speaking up for the benefit of all, well maybe not for all. Those that are running the system obviously don’t like being exposed. Too bad! Games over! Governor LePage may not be the perfect governor, but at least he follows through with his word. (From personal experience) With very few exceptions, that’s more than I can say for all other politicians. Last time I checked, there were no perfect candidates running for governor. As far as politicians that have committed treason……………probably not enough characters left in this chat box to list them all. Going to court is like visiting your local casino, follow the money. Do not go into court expecting justice. Contrary to most of the headlines this past week, members of the Constitutional Coalition are not domestic terrorists, if you don’t understand or disagree with something that they said, contact them to discuss it. Remember: if your head is in the sand, then a very vulnerable part of your body is highly visible. Keep up the good work Wayne & Phil. Kudos to Mark LaFlamme for writing a fair story!”

Are the comments from uninformed/uneducated people encouraging elected officials to maintain their “controlled” thinking?

Phil and Wayne’s concerns beg many questions.

Does this prove that the people are on the right track and close to exposing what those in authority don’t want exposed?

Does this have the appearance of bullying, hate crimes…and if there are other participants, may involve another crime?

What evidence does Mr. Alan Caron have that would justify calling these so-called sovereign citizens “crazies?” Is Mr. Caron participating in “hate crimes” in this case? What constitutes “crazies”? And he’s a “consultant”?

When the spotlight is on “official corruption”, evidence proves that anything will be done, or allowed to be done, to whomever they want to silence. Officials will play along with anyone in order to achieve their intended goal, despite consequences to the Maine’s taxpayers. Afterall, you’ll never know about it….except through alternative media!

Those who sought accountability of injustices, violations of the law from those in authority behind the “veil”, and when rebuffed spoke out,  have been subjected to demonization in the mainstream media, physically harmed (view the last case on this video) or drugged. In furtherance of the silence of people who are not part of the “good ole boy” network and who run for office will lose through “ballot tampering.” Other tactics used are suppression of freedom of speech and theft of property.

“Tipping” The Scales

The mainstream media is at it again. Out to destroy, defame, demonize good people once more with the help of Mike Tipping, columnist and blogger for the Portland Press Herald and Bangor Daily News.

PPH reports “Mike Tipping’s book, which “will be published this month by Tilbury House, a small Maine publisher, is causing a stir in Maine political circles with its claims that Gov. Paul LePage held a series of meetings last year with individuals associated with a conspiracy group.”

It has the appearance of political maneuvering. It’s easy to get your side of the story out when you’re in bed with the media.

BDN reports “Senate President Justin Alfond called LePage’s ongoing meetings with members of the Constitutional Coalition, “disturbing and irresponsible. The FBI were notified by legislative staff members, a joint release issued by Alfond and Speaker Eves stated.” The article also notes “Tipping, works as communications director for the liberal Maine People’s Alliance.”

“Alexander Willette, a spokesman for LePage’s campaign, dismissed Tipping and his book, saying the campaign would not respond to the book’s claims. This book is just a ploy for attention from the author, who seems desperate to pull the wool over the people’s eyes and sell more of his books.”

Neither Mr. Tipping’s book, nor the media reports, deserve a response, although many questions arise. Is this group being used to target Governor LePage?

Just to note, Mike Tipping is Communications Director for The Maine Peoples’ Alliance. Allies/Partners include League of Women Voters of Maine and Maine Citizens for Clean Elections.

The scales are tipped when only one side of a story is reported.

Why would legislative staff members contact the FBI when Alfond, Eves and other legislators refused to meet with these constituents? How did the staff determine and justify calling these good people “extremists”, “terrorists” and all other names they could conjure up if they didn’t meet with them? Did the PPH or BDN interview the people they are reporting about and who met with Governor LePage?

Let’s balance the scale.

This is just another layer on the onion of official corruption as it goes on to new heights.

Why haven’t any Maine officials/law enforcement called upon the FBI to investigate the following issues, for starters:

ELECTIONS

As you view these documents, please be aware that under the Baldacci(D) administration, charges were trumped up against good, honest, decent people who volunteered on this campaign.

H. Sawin Millett, Jr., Commissioner of the Department of Administrative and Financial Services, Resigns

For Immediate Release: Thursday, April 3
Contact: Adrienne Bennett, Press Secretary (207) 287-2531
Governor Announces Resignation of Finance Commissioner H. Sawin Millett, Jr.

Commissioner to step down May 31, 2014

” Governor Paul R. LePage announced today that H. Sawin Millett, Jr., Commissioner of the Department of Administrative and Financial Services, will retire effective May 31, 2014.

“Sawin’s institutional knowledge and acute understanding of the state budget and financial operations has been invaluable to our administration,” said Governor LePage. “His quiet authority and wisdom gained over more than five decades of public service have commanded the highest respect from everyone in state government, and the depth of his experience will be difficult to replace. We wish Sawin and his family much happiness and enjoyment in the retirement he so richly deserves.”

“After nearly 55 years of public service at the local, state and federal levels here in Maine, I have decided that it is time to phase down the hectic pace of my daily commitment and devote more time to enjoying the wonderful family, farm and community pleasures that await me in Waterford, my birthplace and the source of many generations of Millett family heritage,” Commissioner Millett stated to the Governor in his resignation letter. “Thank you for giving me the privilege of serving in your administration.”

Millett has served as Commissioner of DAFS in the LePage Administration for 39 months. During that time he has assisted the Governor in managing two biennial and eight supplemental budgets, directing major pension and tax reforms, overseeing zero-based budgeting and leading the streamlining task force to find $25 million in ongoing structural savings for Maine taxpayers.

Commissioner Millett has a lengthy history of public service to the State of Maine. He began his career as a teacher and coach at Carmel High School in 1959, after graduating from Bates College. He served as a teacher, coach and principal until 1971, having earned a Master’s in Education from the University of Maine in 1967. He served as the Executive Director of the Maine School Management Association and was an Assistant Professor with the University of Southern Maine.

The Commissioner first dabbled in politics at the local level, serving as a selectman from 1963-1970 in Dixmont. He later served as a selectman in his hometown of Waterford from 1986-1989.

Commissioner Millett has served in the Maine House of Representatives six times; from 1969-1972 in the 104th and 105th Legislatures and four consecutive terms from 2002-10 in the 121st, 122nd, 123rd and 124th Legislatures. He served as the lead House Republican on the Appropriations and Financial Affairs Committee for the last three terms of his legislative career.

Commissioner Millett has also served five Governors over the span of his career. He served as Commissioner of Education for Governor Longley from 1975-1979 and again for Governor Brennan in 1979. He served Governor McKernan first as a Legislative Director from 1987-1989, as Finance Commissioner from 1989-1991 and then as Commissioner of the newly created DAFS from 1991-1995.

He served Governor King as a Policy Advisor in 1995 and as Associate Commissioner of the Department of Mental Health/Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services from 1996-2000.

The Commissioner also has federal service, having served as the Western Maine Regional Director for Senator Susan Collins from 2000-2002. He is a Rotarian and a member of the Mount Tir’em Lodge 132, A.F. & A.M.

Millett has been married to his loving wife, Barbara, for nearly 57 years. They reside on their 140-acre family farm in Waterford, Maine. Together they have had five children, 10 grandchildren and now have three great-grandchildren.”

Maine Governor LePage Nominates Former AG William Schneider For Judgeship

Inline image 1

Gov. Paul LePage nominated the following two District Court judges for the Superior Court bench and five other people for District Court judgeships, including former AG William Schneider:

Judge Daniel I. Billings to the Superior Court bench                                                                                                                           Judge Robert E. Mullen to be a Superior Court bench

Attorney General William J. Schneider and Assistant Attorney General Andrew Benson to be District Court judges

Barbara L. Raimondi, Lance E. Walker and Eric J. Walker to serve as District Court judges.

LePage renominated four District Court judges: Michael Cantara, Charles Dow, Valerie Stanfill and Rick Lawrence. He also renominated two Superior Court justices, Andrew Horton and Nancy Mills, and one Supreme Judicial Court justice, Andrew Mead.

Says LePage “As governor, I have the utmost respect and have been impressed with the high quality work of the judicial branch,” the governor said in the press release. “In choosing judges, my focus is on the qualifications, demeanor, and integrity of the candidates, not politics. These nominees reflect those priorities.”

Read more HERE and HERE. Be sure to view the comments.

Before considering Gov. LePage’s nomination of William Schneider to the court, albeit fake courts, the following must be considered.

States Gov. LePage “In choosing judges, my focus is on the qualifications, demeanor, and integrity of the candidates, not politics.”  William Schneider does not possess the qualifications, integrity, honesty and trustworthiness of a judgeship. Schneider will carry his bias, prejudicial and selective “web of deceit” into the courtroom.

LePage is aware of much of Lise’s documentation on the original constitution (1820) and Maine’s judicial system. He requested documents from her and she provided them to him. (To view documents, in the search box type in “Lise from Maine”.)

A criminal complaint was filed with A.G. Schneider on January 10, 2011 regarding the following:

FRAUD – A scheme was devised by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343 and 36 M.R.S.A., 5 M.R.S.A. § 4684, to unlawfully obtain ownership of real estate. The enterprise involved is an “enterprise” as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 1961(4).

EXTORTION – The “enterprise”, conspiring in concert with others, aided and abetted theft and extortion through the commission of state and federal offenses and gained financially by receiving the proceeds and benefits of this extortion in violation of 17-A M.R.S.A. §§ 353, 355 and 18 U.S.C. § 880. This entire “scheme” is a series of RICO predicate acts as 18 U.S.C. § 1951(a) expressly makes conspiracy a predicate act and a crime. The furtherance of these crimes was in violation of 17-A M.R.S.A. §§ 353, 354, 355 and 18 U.S.C. § 1349, 241, 242.

MAIL & WIRE FRAUD – The internet and U.S. Postal service were used by the enterprise/associate” to further extort money in the amount of $35,000 in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343. These were also multiple predicate acts under RICO statutes.

BANK & SECURITIES FRAUD – The “enterprise”/agent involved unlawfully used property, other than his own, as collateral by means of false or fraudulent pretenses and did obtain a mortgage from a bank in the amount of $105,000.00 in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344 and § 1348. The Security Instrument involved, was obtained through unlawful activity and constitutes “racketeering activity” as defined by 18 U.S.C. §1961 and money laundering as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 1956 and § 1957.

Governor LePage is aware of this complaint – he took no action. Click here.

John Morris, Comm. Dept. of Public Safety has aided and abetted in the A.G.’s cover up of these crimes – RICO violations. Response from Mr. Morris, HERE.

Pursuant to 25 MRS, Chap. 351: Department of Public Safety §2908. Police officers; powers and duties; cooperation, the Commissioner of Public Safety may expand the duties and powers of police officers beyond the duties and powers enumerated in this section to investigate, prosecute, serve process on and arrest violators of any law of this State.

A Remonstrance for Maine Government was presented by the Aroostook Watchmen at an emergency meeting with Governor LePage, click here.

The  “continuity of racketeering activity” within the state of Maine, violation of his oath of office, non-compliance of Maine’s statutes, violations of common law rights of the people will only be continued with Schneider on the bench. Appointing a former prosecutor to the bench will only reap the same results as Judge Michael Cantara (former York County prosecutor). Judge Cantara has been hiding behind a mask since his days as District Attorney of York County. He didn’t get where he is being on the side of the people. He’s been aware of the frauds perpetrated by banks since the 1990′s and did NOTHING except shield Saco Biddeford Savings Bank, Attorney Michele Robert (who now occupies a position in the State A.G.’s office) and (now former) Judge Robert Crowley.

A Lesson In History Can Help The ‘Discord’ Between LePage and Mills

Public Notice To Maine Governor Paul LePage

“Last evening, Wednesday January 8, 2014, the local news channels addressed the tension between Governor LePage and Attorney General Janet Mills as it relates to the medicaid report, and he said that she could sue him for not releasing the report.

He is a republican, and she is a democrat.

Here is what Governor LePage does not know about.

What happened as a result of the 1855 resolve?

In order to understand what the fraudulent 1855 resolve accomplished, you must understand what the original constitution says and means.

First of all, in the original Constitution of the State of Maine (1820) it states in part in Article V, Part First, Executive Power, Section 8: “He [Governor] shall nominate, and, with the advice and consent of the Council, appoint all judicial officers, the Attorney General (emphasis is mine), the Sheriffs, Coroners, Registers of Probate and Notaries Public……….”

This is an Executive Department function ONLY. All of this belongs in this department.

Here is what the 1855 resolve states in part: (View 1855 Resolve, click here.)

“SECT. 10. The land agent and attorney general (emphasis is mine) shall be chosen annually by joint ballot of the senators and representatives in convention.

Vacancies in said offices occurring when the legislature is not in session, may be filled by appointment by the governor, with the advice and consent of the council.”

What is the problem with this resolve?

First of all, the legislative department has NO delegation of authority to “interfere” with another department.

The function of the Attorney General is to “execute” the laws of the state, and that is an Executive department function ONLY.

The legislative department ONLY makes the laws.

“Separation of Powers” is a common law principle among many principles.

What the Legislature accomplished by this fraudulent resolve is to “steal” from the Executive department the ability to “elect” the Attorney General and have the Attorney General under its thumb so to speak to execute the laws of the state rather than the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Council, to select their own Attorney General of their own “choosing.”

Remember that the Attorney General had to attend ALL court sessions of the “circuitry court” known as the Supreme Judicial Court (this court was eliminated in 1929 unlawfully) that travelled to each county to hear causes. He was there to make sure that all laws were faithfully executed lawfully according to the original constitution.

The Attorney General also gave instructions to the “local” county attorney, who had a “double role.” He acted for the state AND the county. The county attorney office has been eliminated in 1973 and replaced by the district attorney office who has ONLY one role; he acts FOR THE STATE ONLY and enforces the “will” of the state.

Keep in mind that the Attorney General is a “field person” who goes out into the various counties (the terrain) and executes the laws of the state as well as the Sheriffs and their deputy Sheriffs. He is under the thumb of the Governor and the Council (Council was eliminated in 1976) to execute the laws.

The Attorney General does NOT belong in the Legislative department since the said department cannot lawfully instruct the Attorney General to execute the laws as this is an extreme “conflict of interest.” It is an interference into another department as it relates to the execution of laws. What this 1855 fraudulent law does is to eliminate the “separation of powers.”

The Legislative department ONLY makes the laws and ANOTHER department executes them. This is the “separation of powers” under the common law, and they don’t mix like oil and water.

Additionally, the Legislature has NO delegation of authority to expand its powers by having the Attorney General under its thumb, and also has NO delegation of authority to “fool” the people (electors) to vote on a fraudulent proposed amendment to begin with.

Furthermore, did Governor Anson P. Morrill ask a “question of law” to the justices of the Supreme Judicial Court (see Article VI, Section 3) regarding this proposed amendment (1855 resolve)?

The Founding Fathers provided a remedy to the public officers in the event that they were uncertain as to the constitutionality or unconstitutionality of a proposed law.

Here is what Article VI, Section 3 states regarding the Judicial department: ” They [judicial officers] shall be obliged to give their opinion upon important questions of law, and upon solemn occasions, when required by the Governor, Council, Senate or House of Representatives.”

It was the Governor’s role as well as the Council’s role to behave in an “adversarial” role as it relates to the Legislature attempting to “steal” their authorities pertaining in this situation in the selection of the Attorney General.

Did they?

I don’t believe so since this fraudulent, pretend law passed.

Keep in mind that a “supposed” law is not law, and it is null and void on its face.

Can the Governor execute a fraudulent law? No, he cannot.

It is fraud and treason.

If Governor Lepage understood this, he could challenge this fraudulent 1855 resolve and take it to court (we don’t have any courts but he could try it anyways). He could make this concept public in his radio addresses and whatever he chooses to write about. He could go to the media and explain to them what this fraudulent 1855 resolve accomplished unlawfully. He could “shout from the rooftops” explaining this fraud and “demand” that these offices be returned to the Executive department.

Exposure is the name of the game.

Overall, what the 1855 resolve accomplished was to “weaken” the Executive department, and in 1976 it was further weaken it with the elimination of the Executive Council.

This 1855 resolve also removed the ability of the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Council, to nominate and appoint their own Sheriffs who are also “field persons” who go out into
the “terrain” called counties and execute the laws of the state. This repugnant 1855 resolve allowed the Sheriffs to be elected by the people (electors).

All fraud and treason.

How can the electors know who are the best persons to do the job of a Sheriff? They don’t. That is the job of the Governor and the Council to select the best qualified persons in order to execute the laws of the state.

In essence, this 1855 resolve “did a number” on the Executive department by removing the ability of the said department to choose their own Attorney General and their own Sheriffs who are the “field persons” to do the best job possible in order to execute the laws.

Thank you!”
