Watchdog Report   Craven County Board of Commissioners meeting, October 2, 2017  

This meeting clearly demonstrated how our federal government is headed for the economic ruin of America.  Two requests for approval to apply for federal transportation grants were approved, and yet another placed on hold for further consideration.  That last grant proposal was to hire a Mobility Manager (duties not clearly defined), and the grant provides funding for the new hire’s salary and benefits for only the first year. (We all know that is how government staff grows.  Slick, isn’t it?)  The director asking for the new position assured the board that federal funding would provide 80% of the funding and the state MIGHT pick up another 10%.
The next group of grants (hate that word) described $32.5 million dollars of federal funding available for disaster recovery program activities to benefit “income eligible” residents that received uninsured storm damage from Hurricane Matthew.  Craven is eligible for a maximum of $1 million.  (Commissioner Jones was hopeful that people who had already taken care of the problems themselves could be reimbursed).  I don’t question the need, BUT HOW MUCH OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS ARE TO BE SOLVED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?
The Director of Economic Development presented a good sales pitch presentation designed to attract industry to Craven County during which Commissioner Dacey began angling for County construction of a spec industrial building to attract an occupant.  I’m sure that would be offered at a bargain price to attract jobs.  Perhaps state and federal grant money could be obtained, too.  After all, it’s only taxpayer money.
My point is not that these federal and state grants do no good, but THINK.  All this goes on in our county for two meetings a month for month after month and year after year.  The same things go on in most of the local governments across the U.S.!  THAT IS WHY AMERICA IS $20 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT!  DEBT PASSED ON TO OUR CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, AND PROBABLY OUR GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN!  Would you willingly put your children in debt???
Back to the meeting…
The solid waste contact was discussed.  That is the one in which compensation to the contractor providing the service exceeds the charges by the county to the user.  (Not that that’s all bad; at least ALL citizens need this service, not just a favored few.  Plus, the more it costs citizens to get rid of waste, the more people will litter, and that’s a significant problem in Craven County already.) The present contractor asked the Board for approval to sell its contract to another provider.  That provider was not the low bidder when the contract was let, but now is willing to provide the service at the price of the low bidder because they will be operating from a closer location due to other aspects of the deal between the contractors.  It was approved.
The groups asking for a referendum from the Board asking North Carolina to approve the Equal Right Amendment and those seeking more protection for animals subject to cruelty are making good headway with the Commissions due to large turnouts of their groups at recent meetings of the Board.  They continued to be present and vocal at this meeting.
Respectfully submitted,
Hal James
CCTA Watchdog Committee Chairman

The first part is the recording of Cliff Muncy from our public meeting on September 19 with Cliff and John Ainsworth of “America’s Remedy,” and that served as a spring-board for our ideas.

You’ll remember John Ainsworth set the stage with historical information about the recent war of northern aggression, the north’s insisting that southern states which seceded from the Union and joined the Confederacy were just rebels, and those states were still in the Union, and had to be subdued.  This view remained in place for a time after the war, but then, the Reconstruction Acts caused the Confederate states to be viewed as a conquered foreign country, and they were made territories of the United States and coerced into again rejoining the Union in an unconstitutional way that “reset America and her demi-sovereign states.”

The remedy being proposed by “America’s Remedy” as expressed by Cliff involves having a relatively significant number of people “reestablishing citizenship in your re-established state” (that is to say, citizenship in the version of North Carolina that was in existence prior to the war), because the citizens of that version of North Carolina were the people harmed by the unconstitutional acts carried out during Reconstruction and those citizens have “standing” in courts to sue for regress of grievances.

That set off a bit of a firestorm among ourselves.  We had varying degrees of agreement and disagreement with taking that approach as a way to curtail the overreaching federal government.  No two of us thought exactly alike, but we all agreed on the goal.

Our discussion went from America’s Remedy’s remedy to other possible remedies and then to how long we think we have to successfully correct federal overreach.  That took us to the idea that, “If Texas turns blue, there goes the ball game,” and how Colorado was turned blue via the “Rocky Mountain Heist,” and the idea U.S. Representative Mark Meadows expressed when he visited New Bern on September 15th about giving the libs the “millions of dollars” and conservatives could still win with “millions of boots on the ground,” and finally the Randy Ramsey (about $400,000) vs. Senator Norman Sanderson (about $40,000 plus thousands of boots) race which was won handily by Norm was remembered.

We were all over the map, but it was a logical progression of ideas.  Honestly.

Our guest are historian and legal activist, John Ainsworth & Cliff Muncy of
John is the founder of America’s Remedy, a non-partisan educational think tank, whose focus, through education and legal activism, is to re-establish America and her demi-sovereign states on a free and Constitutional foundation. As a strong advocate of lawful, constitutional government, and passionate in his service to see America re-claimed, John took two years off of work in 1995 to research America’s derailing. John has over 19 years of study and has been involved in over 15 court cases. In 1997, John was involved in re-establishing the de jure state of North-Carolina. He has hosted and co-hosted a number of television and radio programs, and he has had numerous speaking engagements across the eastern U.S.
John Ainsworth poses the question —
Did National Citizenship Eliminate State Rights?
Where state-rights and a limited federal government are desirable, is it counter-productive that Americans participate in a national form of citizenship? Was citizenship always a national concept? Is it our own unquestioning patriotism and participation in national U.S. citizenship which prevents us from having
states which can act free of national “indefinite supremacy”?
Black’s Law defines a state as a “self-sufficient body of persons, united together in one community for the protection of their rights”. With this information in mind, let’s ask ourselves — What happened to our sovereign states? What are these states we have today, and for whom were they created?
Join us as Reconstruction historian and legal activist John Ainsworth sheds new light on our history, to reveal a specific, pivotal transformation that occurred to our system of government which eliminated the concept of state-loyal, state citizens from the American political landscape.
Understanding our history is vital to restoring America’s future.
Cliff Muncy is Director of Media at America’s Remedy — a non-partisan, educational think tank, with the goal of shedding light on the origin and negative impact of nationalized citizenship. Their focus, through education and legal activism, is to re-
establish America and her demi-sovereign states on a free and Constitutional foundation.

This Week’s TRUMP REPORT CARD by Constance Hanna Conniehanna131@gmail.com

This article appeared in The County Compass September 14-20 issue.
     The President plans to visit as many as 13 states in the next seven weeks to sell the need for tax reform.  He will concentrate on states he won during the general election that have a Democrat senator up for reelection next year.  These include Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Montana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.  In some instances, cabinet members will follow the President’s visit to amplify his message.  This is a proactive strategy to energize voters to contact their representatives and senators and let their preferences be known.  Good luck, Mr. President!
     This week the President announced his seventh wave of Federal Judicial Appointments.  He nominated 16 individuals this time.  The Democrats continue to slow the appointments by using the full 30 hours of debate allowed for each nomination.  By mid-July each of the four previous administrations (Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama) had an average number of 190 appointments confirmed.  For President Trump, that number was 50.  In August, James Langford (R-OK) proposed reducing the debate time to 8 hours or less which would allow a debate and a vote on five or more appointments a week instead of one or two.
So far, this has not come to fruition.
     President Trump hosted Senators for a bipartisan dinner at the White House on Tuesday, September 12th.  Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Joe Manchin (D-WV), John Thune (R-SD), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Pat Toomey (R-PA) discussed advancing the Administration’s legislative priorities in general, and there was emphasis on tax cuts for American families in particular.  Michael Goodwin of The New York Post said that, although there is no guarantee for success, “History consistently rewards those presidents whose leadership produces results that reflect a broad consent of the governed.”
     Reflecting this same thought, President Trump said on Thursday, “When we set aside our differences — and it’s amazing sometimes how little our differences are — we put our country and the citizens of our country first.”
     I’d say the President had another “A” week, but it’s a good thing I’m not rating the Senate.  They’re not earning high marks, but maybe they’ll respond well to a shared dinner and shared ideas.  And maybe we should call them?!!

Protectionist CON laws and you, the unprotected by Dr. Jay Singleton

Protectionist CON laws and you, the unprotected

by Dr. Jay Singleton


Dr. Singleton is Board Certified in Ophthalmology (scoring in the 95th percentile), and he specializes in cataract surgery, laser cataract surgery, Lasik surgery, glaucoma surgery, blepharoplasty, and treatment of diseases of the eye.  He has performed over 20,000 cataract surgeries. His medical practice is located on Trent Road in New Bern, North Carolina.
 

Dr. Singleton has worked for some time to try to convince the NC General Assembly to eliminate Certificate of Need (CON) laws, and the Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association’s State Legislative Action Committee is also working toward that end.

 

I see patients from all over Eastern NC.  Many of these patients have just moved here from northern states.  When it comes time for surgery, they almost invariably say, “Why can’t you just do my cataract surgery here in your office?  Where I’m from, there are outpatient surgery centers everywhere.”

My answer is always the same, “In NC, a mutually beneficial deal has been struck between the large hospitals’ systems and many of our lawmakers to push patients toward higher priced, hospital owned surgery centers.”

The instrument they use to do this is a group of laws called the Certificate of Need laws (CON laws).  These laws were enacted by the federal government in the early 1970s to control costs in healthcare by preventing duplication of services.  By 1987, CON laws were abandoned because they did not achieve their intended purposes.  Unfortunately, North Carolina kept their very strict form of CON laws that even today rank as the third most restrictive in the continental US.  This means that nearly all healthcare services are regulated by the DHHS, and a healthcare entity must prove a need exists in their county or region.

This is where it gets interesting.  For surgery centers to survive, they must collect a separate fee from insurance companies called a facility fee.  This fee is paid in addition to surgical fees to offset the overhead costs of a particular surgery.  You must have a CON in NC to collect this fee, and you must prove need, and be unopposed by the hospital system in your region to acquire a CON.

 

For example, without a facility fee in cataract surgery, a surgeon would make $580 and incur $800 in overhead.  In addition, facility fees are variable.  Hospitals are given two to three times more fees for the same surgery as a hidden subsidy for loses incurred from the care of uninsured patients (as if being completely tax exempt isn’t enough to off-set that).

 

In assessing need, the cards are intentionally stacked in favor of hospitals.  If one looks at the CONs awarded over the last decade, almost all were awarded to hospitals except those granted to dialysis centers.  Each year, the NC State Health Coordinating Council (SHCC) provides a list of “need per region,” and despite our state recently growing to over 9 million residents, the list still showed no increase in need.

If a physician is somehow able to prove need in his or her area in spite of that situation, the friendly local hospital can oppose the project and that runs legal fees up to, on average, something in excess of $400,000.

CON laws are protectionist (of hospitals at the expense of physicians and their patients who could be served more conveniently and at less expense).  CON laws are also unconstitutional at their core.  Yet the laws’ unfairness and unconstitutionality are flaunted in plain sight.  Our state will continue to cling to its special brand of CON laws as long as we keep looking the other way.  Keeping silent on the subject will not make them go away; only citizens actively expressing their displeasure to their representatives in the General Assembly can make a difference.

Special guests were Major Dave (Dave Goetze) and Meloni Wray, Director of Elections for Craven County.

Rick started things off by asking Meloni about changes since the last election, and she gave a smooth and even handed description of all that has happened.  She also talked about how voters can help things go well by educating themselves, and pointed out that the Board of Elections has a new website, cravenvote.com, which is designed to be a tool to help voters learn what they need to know.

Next Rick opened the issue of voter fraud by observing, “Some folks claim there is none,” and he threw the question of voter fraud to Major Dave.

 Major Dave’s background: he’s retired Army, and he handled and designed huge data bases for the Army and used them to do investigative work, and also taught related classes at the Army’s Professional Education Center.

Major Dave began by saying we do have voter fraud, and that most people look at what he calls the “front end” of it – voters who use someone else’s name, fake addresses, and the like – much of it things that people mentally associate with same day registration and voting during early voting.  And there are people working on documenting that.

However, Dave believes there are thousands more fraudulent votes cast through the “back end” of the system, and that possibility is what he has been examining for months.

Dave quoted “chapter and verse” of several situations and gave exact numbers (he brought a cart on wheels with a gazillion print-outs so he could show us hard evidence to back up his remarks), but my simplified version of an “inconsistency” he saw that grabbed me is this…

After the polls closed, the vote totals continued to change for awhile.  This is legitimately caused by two things.  One of them is ballots that are postmarked by the right date, but arrive after Election Day.  (For example, this is often the case with the ballots of members of the military.)  The other thing is provisional ballots because some of them end up being counted and some of them are excluded for various proper reasons.  In total, 36,000+ of these two types of ballots counted in the last election.

However, during the period these ballots were being counted, the governor’s race received an additional 50,000+ votes!  WHERE did they come from???  That means 13,000+ more votes were added to the tally than were available to anyone from the 36,000+ pool.

Now, consider this; prior to counting those additional votes, Governor Cooper was leading by less than 10,000 votes which was within the margin for a recount.  After these votes were added, Governor Cooper was leading by more that 10,000 votes which meant if former Governor McCrory called for a recount, he would have to have paid for the recount himself!

What happened then?  Governor McCrory acknowledged defeat, and that set up a chain reaction.  The Republican candidates for Attorney General, State Auditor, and Secretary of State also threw in the towel.

What do those 4 offices have in common?  Those are the 4 state offices that have a statutory duty for elections.  So, with the help of 13,000+ votes-from-nowhere, the 4 offices responsible for running fair, fraud free elections was flipped to Democrats.

How could that have happened?  Those two classes of votes that can legitimately be changed after Election Day are normally handled within each county, and the changes are noted in a machine that is a stand alone machine and is not hooked to any system, and then the new totals are sent in.

That was done in the most recent election, but with a twist.  When each report went in, a report of all the accompanying key strokes were required to be sent with it.  That would make it possible for someone at the state level (or for someone associated with the vendor who supplied the machines) to pick it up from there and run with it and create, oh, I don’t know, say 13,000+ votes-from-nowhere.

Now it really gets interesting.  In future elections, Directors of Elections in the various counties are not to use their stand alone machines to reconcile changes after Election Day, they must in-put their information into a connected system.  This gives them less autonomy, less control, and less ability to keep up with all the data they might like to keep up with, AND it gives people at the state and vendor levels an easier way to create votes-from-nowhere!

Now, for one final link in this chain of information and logic, there is only one vendor in the state of North Carolina (they do have subcontractors), and they achieved their status in an interesting way.  When bids were put out, the specs included that not only the company that won the contract, but the CEO of that company would be personally liable if anything should go wrong.  At first there were a number of applicants, but the personal liability requirement caused all companies except one to withdraw, an outfit called ES&S.  ES&S was awarded the contract, but guess what?  The personal liability requirement was removed from the contract before it was executed!

Could the four seats (Governor, Attorney General, State Auditor, and Secretary of State) have been fraudulently stolen in our last election?

Lynn Taylor, known as “Common Core Diva,” was a special guest via Skype. Lynn lives in Mooresville (near Charlotte), North Carolina. She spent 23 years homeschooling her 3 children. Lynn is admired and respected by Kim Fink, and her CCTA Public Education Committee.

Rick asked Lynn if what’s going on in education here and what’s going on in the UN have any relationship. She said they are related, and the key to understanding it are the notions of “collectivism” and “sustainability,” and goals built around the idea of being “green.” The idea is that “technology saves trees,” and “we can’t be one big happy world if we’re not all connected digitally.” NC has been among the first to hook up to global efforts for education and data sharing. Lynn also says FERPA (the “Family Educational Rights and Privacy Right Act of 1974”) has been gutted by an Executive Order by President Obama. She pointed out that data can be collected (without permission) in students’ homes by their school provided devices.

This change was accomplished by a publication of the US. Department of Education which states in part: “High quality data and robust data systems will help us measure our progress towards President Obama’s goal for us to be first in the world in college completion by the year 2020 and better meet the needs of parents, teachers, and students. … the U.S. Department of Education (Department) has begun several initiatives to provide technical assistance to States, districts, and schools to protect the privacy rights of students, promote the responsible use of data to inform education policy and practices and empower parents, teachers and students to use this information to advocate for their rights and improve their educational outcomes.”
