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.

2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

“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.

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.

“Tavistock Institute is headquartered in London. Its prophet, Sigmond Freud, settled in Maresfield Gardens when he moved to England. He was given a mansion by Princess Bonaparte. Tavistock’s pioneer work in behavioral science along Freudian lines of “controlling” humans established it as the world center of foundation ideology. Its network now extends from the University of Sussex to the U.S. through the Stanford Research Institute, Esalen, MIT, Hudson Institute,Heritage Foundation, Center of Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown, where State Dept. personal are trained, US Air Force Intelligence, and the Rand and Mitre corporations. The personnel of the corporations are required to undergo indoctrination at one or more of these Tavistock controlled institutions. A network of secret groups, the Mont Pelerin Society, Trilateral Commission, Ditchley Foundation, and the Club of Rome is conduit for instructions to the Tavistock network.

Today the Tavistock Institute operates a $6 Billion a year network of Foundations in the U.S., all of it funded by U.S. taxpayers’ money.”

“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:


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.

The following was sent to Andrew Boisse, Executive Director, Maine Citizens for Clean Elections and Barbara McDade, President, The League of Women Voters of Maine. No response has been received. Click here.

Let’s shine some light on past history with DHS and Medicaid. The PPH (12/13/11) reported that the “Maine Medicaid deficit is mostly the result of a series of technical budgeting miscalculations. Click here.

The layer on the onion of official corruption has been ongoing for decades. Where were our elected representatives?

When Angus King was Governor of Maine, this video was hand-delivered to him, as well as Governor John Baldacci. This was/is a threat to the people of Maine. Why did they not speak out or take action? Take note of who remained in office. View more documents HERE.

The refusal/failure of elected officials to act upon these crimes and the refusal of the media to report on these frauds perpetrated against the people is an attack on all Mainers.

Welcome to American Deception

“This website is committed to exposing the deceptively hidden truths that have brought America, and the world as a whole, to the present situation, where individual freedom is becoming a thing of the past. Little of what has occurred throughout history has been by mistake, yet there is a wide belief amongst the majority of people that “bad things just happen for no reason at all”. Seen as more of a faulty and clumsy political dance, it is easier for many people to believe that most unfortunate happenings are a result of misjudgments or error.

As our visitors will quickly notice, the informational content has rarely if ever been covered by the Major Media. This is of no surprise since the triangle is as one. It is hardly a complicated reality that the corporations own the government as well as the media. Therefore one should not be surprised that what is called news in this country is more omission than commission, and therefore does not reflect accurately what is happening here in the U.S. or elsewhere in the world.”

Is this another attempt to keep Charlotte’s info from the public?


Charlotte’s letter to BDN regarding the Governor’s Education Conference which she attended March 21, 2013.

BDN said it was lost. Charlotte forwarded it again to them and was never printed.

Charlotte’s latest letter to BDN, Saturday, April 20, 2013:

“Dear Ms. Feulner:

I am, of course, sorry you did not choose to print my article (see attachment above) regarding the Governor’s Education Conference which I attended March 21, 2013.

Perhaps the  article I am forwarding to you (click on link below) will help you understand that the situation about which I wrote is not fantasy and is playing out, in a very ugly manner,  across the nation.

The whole country is in an uproar over Common Core, Chiefs for Change, Jeb Bush, Tony Bennett, MIchele Rhee, et al, but the Bangor Daily News remains silent.

Does Governor LePage and the Republican Party have such control over the media that respecting his position takes precedence over the future of Maine’s teachers and our children?

Please respond.



P.S.  Perhaps my article went astray, as happened the first time I submitted it.  In that case, I apologize, and I will, if you wish, resubmit it. ”

Related, click here. BDN reported “a longstanding battle with upper management over journalistic practices at their Bangor TV stations, when news co-anchors Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio announced their resignations at the end of Tuesday’s 6 p.m. newscast.

Why won’t they publish Charlotte’s letter? Please forward this post to your lists.

LePage proposes taking money from education aid for legal defense

By Christopher Cousins, BDN Staff

AUGUSTA, Maine — Two legislative committees have rejected two proposals by Gov. Paul LePage to create a total of $1.3 million in legal defense funds.

On Monday, the Legislature’s Education and Cultural Affairs Committee voted 10-2 against a $1 million provision in LePage’s biennial budget proposal which would have taken money from general purpose aid for education to create a legal defense fund for the state Board of Education, the Department of Education and the Maine Charter School Commission. …
