Government double-dippers rake in big bucks


Another victory for big government and the addition of another double-dipper to the already burgeoning double-dipping state legislature. August 23, 2014

The newly minted double-dipper is Republican Representative elect Mat Pitsch.

Pitsch, believing there was something smelly about seeking a double-dipping position in the state legislature sought legal advice 3 years ago, since he was already employed by a government institution. To Mr. Pitsch: double-dipping is obviously not illegal but it is morally/ethically corrupt to the core.

In an article appearing in the T.R. today Pitsch stated he worked out a private contract through the Western Arkansas Planning & Development District to work with the Regional Intermodal Transportation Authority (RITA)—another offshoot of the U.N.’s Agenda 21.

Pitsch carved himself out a nice $11,000 per month taxpayer subsidized check, absent daylight, and will receive in addition a check from the Arkansas State Legislature in the amount of $15, 362 per year, accompanied by an annual per diem. Pitsch, like all legislators, will receive up to $1 million at the end of a legislative session to disperse as they see fit, i.e. buy votes. Just exactly what does Pitsch do to earn $11,000 per month from RITA?

What is the connection between WAPDD and RITA—both burgeoning operations & weighting down middleclass taxpayers.

Pitsch will spend a good part of ½ year languishing in Little Rock at the State Capital, apart from his alleged day job. Will Pitsch receive an $11,000 per month check while he is residing in the state’s capital? Furthermore; the very real troubling aspect that Pitsch is involved in, simply stated, who will he represent—big government/corporate Arkansas or Arkansas middleclass citizens? Where do you think his allegiance lies? The answer is obvious.

As stated before, many if not most of the members of the Arkansas Legislature are joined inextricably at the hip (double-dippers) with city, county, state and federal governments, and some have no real job at all except state government which was designed to be a part-time job.

Government is not about public service, it’s all about self-service and Representative elect Mat Pitsch is more than ready to do the bidding of government.

Never do we hear of a politician or bureaucrat, in this case Mat Pitsch, leading the charge for protection of middleclass Arkansans/Americans, just nebulous bantering.

Hopefully, voters will break out of their malaise and quit worshiping at the altar of, in many cases criminally corrupt, and in all cases morally & ethically corrupt Democrat & Republican Parties…Observe!

When two constitutional illiterates meet!

Two Constitutional illiterates met and the ensuing aftermath.

Last evening a town hall meeting was held in Fort Smith, AR. August 21, 2014

The guest speaker was U.S. Rep. Steve Womack (R) Rogers, AR.

Rep. Womack was asked how he and the Republican Party could square their position on Tort Reform in view of the 7th & 10th Amendments. Republicans position on Tort Reform is to allow U.S. government bureaucrats to set arbitrary, limited, binding awards on personal injury and malpractice.

Womack refused to answer the aforementioned question which was posed numerous times. Finally, Womack capitulated on his position on Tort Reform by stating he was not there to answer questions; thereby retreating. Then why was he there?

For those of you who are not constitutionally savvy, the 7th Amendment demands, among other things, “in Suits at Common Law, where the value in controversy shall exceed $20, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved”.

It is crystal clear that Republican stalwarts are ignorant of the Constitution and/or they view it as an impediment. An impediment, which prevents them from satisfying the unconstitutional demands of physician groups, insurance companies and corporate America, while betraying in this case, middleclass Arkansans, but not limited to.

The 10th Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the State, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”.

Womack further stated, “Congress makes the laws, the President signs the law and it is the law of the land until it is litigated in court”. Congressman Womack continued to show he is in a forest of ignorance.

If Womack and his peers are/were knowledgeable pertaining to the U.S. Constitution, why would the Congress pass laws in direct opposition to the Constitution? Whether it be through ignorance or illegality the results are the same—an attack on American independence & jurisprudence.

Womack’s position is indeed ironic: this man has served as the mayor of Rogers, AR for a number of years, U.S. Army Reserve for many years and now serving in the U.S. Congress. How many times has Congressman Womack sworn allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, but still has no comprehension of what the Constitution demands.

University of Arkansas (Ft. Smith) Chancellor Paul Beran made his way to the townhall meeting surrounded by a coterie of illegal Mexicans & perhaps OTM’s flaunting the Constitution and projecting an in-your-face hubris toward middleclass taxpayers.

In the discussion pertaining to illegal immigration Beran exclaimed our Southwest borders cannot be secured. Beran’s statement flies in the face of the rule of law and U.S. sovereignty. Most certainly U.S. borders can be secured! The legal mechanism is in place. All that is needed is enforcement orchestrated by the two cowardly political parties and the Cultural Marxist Barack Obama. Beran, like most, if not all pseudo-educators, is by his own admissions & activities can be rightfully described as a Cultural Marxist and that puts him in the company of U of A flagship President G. David Gerhart who has on more than one occasion spoken in favor of the illegal alien mass invasions and has brought them to Fayetteville for a mass demonstration in a brazen show of illegal bravado, knowing full well the laws would not be enforced.

Recall Fort Smith Superintendent Benny Gooden, who a number of years ago also brazenly stated, “We’ll take all we can get” referring to illegal Mexicans and OTM’s.

The Republican Party and self-serving bureaucrats such as Paul Beran are nothing more than shills for corporate America and the Chambers of Commerce, shipping American jobs internationally and importing uneducated, poverty-stricken foreign national 3rd World illegals—an absolute betrayal of the American Middleclass and the ultimate demise of Western Civilization.

If you value our liberty, property rights, free speech, self-determination, and our culture then the likes of the two constitutional no-shows at last evening’s townhall meeting are a very dangerous breed.

Continue to elect & hire the likes of the two mentioned above, you travel at your own peril.

Future looks bright for those receiving tax funds, not those “giving”.

Guest editorial in today’s T.R. by banker Sam Sicard, titled “Future looks bright for Fort Smith” (another marshmallow served up by the Times Record)

Editorial murky, devoid of specifics and in a number of areas fail the smell test. (August 20, 2014)

Two examples should make the point: He cites the proposed Marshal Museum behemoth as a “game changer”. How so?

1. Initially the MM was billed as a private enterprise project—what happened? Over $3 million of middleclass Arkansas taxpayers’ money has been dumped into this project. Those monies do not include the huge taxpayer costs entailed in the minting, distribution and sale of the MM commemorative coins.
More taxpayer abuse?
The big questions are: who are the owners of the MM, what are the contingency plans for the MM should it reach fruition and/or then fails to fly? Are the plans to dump it on Sebastian County/Fort Smith for the takeover in the event of failure, or the state, or the feds? Citizens deserve answers.

2. Young Mr. Sicard alludes to the softball complex at Chaffee Crossing. Available information states that one Republican office holder, i.e. State Senator Jake Files, and one Democrat office holder, Sebastian County Democrat Committee Chairman Lee Webb have been given the right to develop and manage the aforementioned softball complex. A strange marriage. Why? The softball complex operation will generate hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly from ticket sales, entry fees, concessions, parking, ad infinitum, replete with no taxpayer accountability. From all appearances, this is a political payoff & citizen abuse for Files’ obtaining state funds for the Marshal’s Museum? Why aren’t the taxpayers financially benefiting from this enterprise?

Certainly as a banker, Sicard understands that public/private partnerships are defined as Fascism—a nexus between corporations & government where the government is the CEO. He alludes to the softball complex as an example of private/public partnerships. Weak indeed, Mr. Sicard.

With all the attention focused on entertainment in Fort Smith, i.e. more government spending and insider trading and little to no citizen oversight, where are the efforts to bring in new jobs instead of the goals of the Chambers of Commerce to bring in more cheap labor illegals to overrun every aspect of our community to satisfy big business, e.g. OK Foods, Simmons, Tysons, et al?

Finally, how many thousands of illegal children & adults will be dumped into Fort Chaffee? With taxpayer funded Catholic Charities and Baptist Enterprises reaping millions of dollars printed out of thin air?

Only the tip.

Property Rights vs. Forced Redistribution

Citizen Taxpayers vs. Library tax or Property Rights vs. Forced Redistribution August 19, 2014

Background: The concept of private individual property rights is a recent arrival in the timetables of human history, much less its official enactment in various degrees by governments around the world—specifically Western Civilization.

The concept finally caught fire in intellectual philosophers’ minds, mainly by the 16th century, to the extent that by the time our Founders were young pupils studying classical literature, languages & philosophies, the rarified ideas of individual rights were honored and struggling to be achieved in reality. The overwhelming significance was for the masses of people who had suffered nearly forever under the heavy hand of tyranny. Up until then it was unheard of that an individual had the right to keep the fruits of his labor and that no one had the right to take them by force of any means.

Our Founders gave us the first nation on earth based on such concepts as individual rights, freedoms, responsibilities and liberty. That an individual doesn’t owe his life to anyone else, nor did anyone else owe theirs to him.
So what happened?

Morph to today—look around at everything governmental (taxpayer funded)—opulence far beyond basic needs, if indeed real NEEDS even exist. Libraries, post offices, police & fire stations, city halls, convention/entertainment centers, schools/sports facilities, office buildings for myriads of agencies, ad infinitum, and all with well paid employees (salaries & perks) while most of the folks paying the bills struggle mightily in comparison.

Altruism is often used as the excuse for taxpayer abuse, e.g. pointing the government gun (laws, regulations, fines, imprisonment) at the heads of wage earners to steal what they want for their particular project, e.g. the illegal child invasions at our borders designed to financially & culturally break the backs of our middleclass and destroy sovereignty.

Altruism is an effective ancient concept generally preached by some religions. It was formally named by Auguste Compte in 1851. Its basic tenant is that one’s own life does not morally belong to the individual but rather to the collective/group/community/others and that serving their interests was superior to one’s own self-interest. It is an impractical, irrational, unlivable, destructive imperative which our Founders would have found reprehensible.

Perhaps the hardworking people of Fort Smith have grown weary of the ever-demanding, unending growth/funding of government entities when the voters recently voted against new onerous increases in taxes to fund the Library cabal’s “visions”. This time they didn’t fall for the “It’s For the Children”, or the perpetual knee-jerk “Giving Back to the Community” propaganda so prevalent today. (Btw, who paid for all that pro-tax advertising?) After all, there are those who still remember the proper & only roll for libraries….books to learn from, not every new technological advance & government program which exists today.

The Library puppet-show & Kabuki dance designed to make folks feel guilty for wanting to keep more of their earnings didn’t work this time and is usually a surefire tactic, and must make the politicians & bureaucrats shocked and angry at this unexpected rejection. They are in all probability already plotting new strategies to get their way…maybe by cutting services under the guise of underfunding to punish the upstarts?

The concept of “rugged individualism” is all but lost, “it takes a village” has won most battles but this one little victory against Forced Redistribution means the flame is not completely out, at least not yet.

FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA…out of the mouths of babes & communists

FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA…Out of the Mouths of Babes & Communists.

August 11, 2014

From an article in the Times Record, 8/11/14, “Immigrant-Rights Nonprofit learns from Arizona Organizations” we are told “Change agents with Arkansas United Community Coalition returned Sunday after a five-day trip to the heart of the border crisis in Arizona with ideas on how to inspire change in their communities. (Emphasis mine)

This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s method for change (always meaning the destruction of Western values, e.g. liberty, private property, personal responsibility, rule of law, etc.) as outlined in his book “Rules for Radicals”.

Community organizing is the background of Barack Hussein Obama and radically changing what America used to be is the goal. It is obviously working since there is little recognizable that is left.

Most of the quotes in the article about their glowing experiences were from teenaged Hispanics…one would expect little else to emanate from their mouths.

Unknown to them is that what made this country great is the opposite of what they are working to achieve…a place with no borders, no principal language, no dominant culture, and no rule of law (meaning proper laws for individual justice rather than whim of men)

For example: the laws on the books now re immigration include 8 USC Sec 1325 – Illegal Entry

Any alien who enters U.S. other than at port of entry by false or misleading representation shall be subject to civil and criminal penalties can be fined and imprisoned

Section 1324a Hiring – Harboring -Transporting any illegal alien
Any person who knowingly hires/harbors/ transports any illegal alien is guilty of a felony punishable by 10 years jail + $2,000 fine per illegal alien + forfeiture of vehicle or property used to commit the crime.

Section 1324c Law officers have authority to make arrests… All officers whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws shall have authority to make arrests for violation of any provision of this section.

When was the last time you heard of these laws much less saw them enforced?

Once our immigration laws were meant to protect our sovereign nation from invasion, diseases, criminal elements and deadbeats. This produced rugged individualism and limited the forced redistribution of earnings of those who worked for them to be given to those who did not. The following quote sums up nicely just what is going on today, which is the death of representative government and the concepts of individual achievement and the ability to keep the rewards of one’s labor.

The Regime Uses Words And Phrases Designed To Bamboozle Us All
August 11, 2014 by Bob Livingston

“Immigration reform: Along the southern border an invasion is taking place perpetrated by Barack Obama policies and pronouncements and intentional lack of border security. The intentionally crafted crisis is designed to flood America with socialist-minded aliens seeking government handouts, an opportunity to bring more family members along and willing to work for slave wages. The process was conceived as a way to overwhelm the system in order to force acquiescence on a policy granting amnesty to millions of potential low-wage earners for businesses big and small, more union slaves and millions of potential Democrat voters. Worse, it’s allowing violent gang members, human traffickers, drug traffickers and violent criminals into the U.S. in large numbers, along with thousands of people infected with Third World diseases.”

Cultural Marxist George Lukacs said in 1919, “Who will save us from Western Civilization?”, theorizing that the greatest obstacle of Marxism was the culture of Western civilization itself.

He and his co-founders would be ecstatic today to read the Times Record article along with myriads of other “accomplishments” globally.

Multi-Culturalism (a tool of Marxism) is no basis for a unified sovereign country, but for those seeking to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE the nation, it is one of the best, most divisive tools possible.

When the Golden Goose is dead, there will be no reviving it.

A Sacred oath is just that…SACRED.

Subject: THE REBEL 10 AUGUST 2014


‘Tis not the many oaths that makes the truth, but the plain single vow that is vow’d true.” William Shakespeare, All’s Well That Ends Well

Without a doubt, the most overlooked and abused object during an election season is the Oath of Office. When was the last time you heard the Oath to uphold and defend our Constitution and Bill of Rights mentioned in a political debate; on the evening news or by any of the so-called pundits in the media?

In today’s world, one must exhibit their ability to perform the job they have applied for, usually in the form of a test or examination; a driver’s license; a teaching certification; license to practice medicine; contractor’s license; POST certification; a concealed carry permit and many more. All these require a working knowledge of the job they have applied for or are being employed to do and some form of examination or test to demonstrate knowledge and application of the principals involved. Yet, for the literally hundreds of thousands of politicians, public officials, law enforcement personnel and government bureaucrats, there is no examination given on what is the most important and sometimes the only requirements of their jobs.

In the Oath of Office taken by politicians, bureaucrats, lawyers, judges, prosecutors, law enforcement personnel and other so-called public servants, the primary object which requires that oath is the Constitutions of the United States and the State in which they perform their duties. No one taking this sacred oath should be allowed to assume any job or position if they cannot demonstrate a working knowledge of the single most important aspect of their job.

Would you be upset if you discovered the doctor who was about to perform life-saving surgery on your child had never passed any test or examination of knowledge and/or proficiency of the procedure they were about to perform? How safe would you feel knowing the pilot of the plane you are about to board for a cross country flight had never actually flown a plane before, but, had taken an oath claiming they knew how? How secure would you be if you were about to make your first skydiving jump from 10,000ft and was told the person who packed your chute had never packed a chute before, had no prior knowledge of how to do it correctly, but was a member of the same political party as you?

But these are life and death situations, you say! Need I remind you of the words from our Declaration of Independence?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” (Emphasis added)

Trusting those we elect to adhere jealously to their sacred oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States and the State Constitution where they reside, against all enemies, foreign and domestic, while not knowing or caring if they have any knowledge of those documents has led to a tyrannical, out of control, totally centralized, socialist government. A government which has created so much debt our children, grand-children and great grandchildren will be virtual slaves to those who hold that debt.
In 1863, then Secretary of the Treasury, Salmon P. Chase, stated to a group who were questioning the ever rising war debt and how it would be repaid, “The very land of this country, every inch of soil, is collateral on that debt.” When you look around and see the gradual confiscation of land and natural resources by bureaucratic agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service, along with mortgage based securities used to shore up the stock market and guarantee the billions of dollars in fiat money the Federal Reserve sinks into the market each month, perhaps you can understand the words of Secretary Chase and the purpose of Section IV in the never properly ratified 14th Amendment, which states:

“The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law… shall not be questioned.”
Simply stated, the land you think you own, in many cases putting your blood, sweat, tears and life’s savings into, is listed as collateral for our ever increasing national debt along with our Public Lands of course. We got here by not caring if those we elect know anything of the objects of their sacred oaths of office.

During the War for Southern Independence, the oath morphed into an oath of allegiance to government rather than to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. That is how the oath is interpreted by the vast majority of our elected officials and bureaucrats today, much to the detriment of the actual purpose of that oath.

Once people believe their sacred oath is to the government, as opposed to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, they, by default, believe any and all actions of the government are legitimate and must be followed. These actions are most often referred to as “laws” or “regulations.” Their lack of knowledge is compounded when they mistakenly believe that any law or regulation passed by that government is the supreme law of the land; an idea that is often repeated by those who intentionally bastardize Article VI Section 2 of our Constitution to their own selfish intentions and agendas.

Our Founders like Thomas Jefferson, George Mason and writers like Frederic Bastiat saw and understood how tyrants would pervert the law and regulations to their own profit and beliefs. Jefferson said of Rightful Liberty:

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” (Emphasis mine)

And here Bastiat explains the per
version of law:

“…law by no means confines itself to its proper functions. And when it has exceeded its proper functions, it has not done so merely in some inconsequential and debatable matters. The law has gone further than this; it has acted in direct opposition to its own purpose. The law has been used to destroy its own objective: It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying rights which its real purpose was to respect. The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense.” (Emphasis mine)
Please note that in the oaths taken by the President, members of Congress, Sheriff’s in Colorado and many other offices which require an oath to our US and State Constitutions, there is no oath to uphold or defend the law. Remember Jefferson’s admonition that the law “is often but the tyrant’s will.”

Martin Luther King Jr. also alluded to the perversion of law.

“We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was “illegal.” It was “illegal” to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany…” ~Martin Luther King Jr. Letter from the Birmingham Jail

It is essential to Rightful Liberty that everyone who takes a sacred oath to our Constitutions has a working knowledge of those documents; they should all be held accountable and each one has an equal obligation to that oath. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court’s oath is no more significant or important than a local Deputy Sheriff or City Police Officer.
Working correctly and in concert, those oaths would protect the Rightful Liberty of everyone at each level.

1. At the point of contact, each member of law enforcement should have a working knowledge of the Constitution and the individual rights of those whom they serve.
2. Should the officer violate the rights of the individual, the District Attorney who prosecutes the case has the power to dismiss such cases where the rights of the citizens are violated. Knowledge of the limits placed on government by our constitutional rights is critical at this level.
3. As prescribed by our Bill of Rights, the case should then be placed in the hands of a Grand Jury to not just determine possible guilt but also the constitutionality of the law and the circumstances of arrest and/or the validity of warrants; search and arrest.
4. Should the violation of rights escape the first three stages, then a judge with a working knowledge of the Natural Laws mentioned in our Declaration of Independence would have it within their power to dismiss the charges.
5. Should the first three checkpoints fail then it is of vital importance those who sit on juries be well versed in our US and State Constitutions. At no time should they be dependent on the Judge or the DA to explain to them the law and whether that law is indeed constitutional. This fifth step places the determination of constitutionality back in the hands of the people where it belongs.
No Oath or Vow in itself contains the establishment of truth. That oath is a testimony of the swearer’s intent to honor their word in fulfillment of that promise. If they have little to no knowledge of that which they swear to do, how will they know they have broken their sacred oath and how will “we the people” know if we also do not have that knowledge?
A strict adherence to the principles of our Constitution and Bill of Rights would not provide a perfect social environment, but it would create a society that honors Rightful Liberty and a government that does not saddle our posterity with a smothering debt they can never hope to pay.

The next time you visit with your children or grandchildren, be sure and explain to them how their futures are indeed grim, with very little hope for prosperity, because you did not take the time to understand your obligations as a citizen and your propensity to elect people because they called themselves this or that or because they belonged to your chosen political party without a passing thought to strict adherence to their Sacred Oaths.

When a candidate tells you it is their duty to enforce any and all laws passed in this country—-be afraid, be very afraid. They are admitting publicly the Sacred Oath they will take means nothing and at some point in time they will violate your rights and/or seize your property.

In Liberty

“Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.”

“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day . . . . I believe it [human condition] susceptible of much improvement, and most of all, in matters of government and religion; and that the diffusion of knowledge among the people is to be the instrument by which it is effected.” Thomas Jefferson, April 24, 1816 . (to Dupont de Nemours)

the “Sustainable” Vampire attacks




The United Nations’ (U.N.) Agenda 21 finally rears its ugly head emanating out of the back halls of city government with City Manager Ray Gosack as the Conductor.

The subject is Agenda21’s much ballyhooed, deceptive “Sustainability”.

Who could be against “sustainability”? Of course no one, if citizens’ definition of Sustain is accepted, but as in all things the United Nations and the Federal Government give a whole new meaning to the word “sustain”, and when the width & depth of their crafted definition is diagramed it surreptitiously means the theft of our Natural and Constitutional rights—the right to property ownership & use, the right of physical movements, riparian rights, housing demands (stack & pack), the right of choice in transportation modes, food selectivity, international awareness & control of our every movement, etc. DO THE RESEARCH! Specific information is available on multiple Agenda 21 websites. Tom DeWeese is a great starting point Also

The Ft. Smith City Board is political and not to be trusted, e.g. most recently the proposed library fraud encompassing a stacked political deck.

Coming down out of the Ozark hills to a proposed meeting with the Fort Smith Mayor & City Directors are 2 high paid ministers of globalist propaganda, Michelle Halsell & Peter Nierengarten. First Halsell: She is the Director of the U of A’s Fayetteville “Applied Sustainability Center”. Some of her globalist activities include teaching in Paris, France and formerly serving as Tyson Poultry’s D.C. international representative. By her own description detailed on the U of A website, she is “certified in Appreciative Inquiry & used AI as a tool for multi-stakeholder engagements around sustainability”. (Anyone who has read Orwell will recognize her Newspeak…all designed to confuse the public)

Notice that in all conversations emanating from the mouths of government, at all levels, there is no concern for the rights of individual citizens, only for the Collective.

She is a Black Widow and people of her ilk are at work destroying our Constitution & Bill of Rights.

Second: the other fellow traveler is Peter Nierengarten who occupies a similar position as Halsell in the Fayetteville, AR city government. He is Fayetteville’s City Director for Sustainability & Resilience. (More “Emperor’s New Clothes”.)

Speaking for Sustainable Arkansas (More Emperor’s New Clothes) Nierengarten said “But if you want an even better score, these are some low-hanging fruit that can be done in terms of ordinances or regulations or just programs the city could offer to up your game.” (Note the words ordinances, regulations, programs and the word “game”.…more government strong-arming.) This guy, as in the case of the woman, is nothing more than high paid shills for Globalism, compliments of unsuspecting citizen taxpayers.

The above 2 individuals are reeking their Constitutional havoc at considerable taxpayer expense and only represent a microcosm of similar national & international projects.

Agenda 21 (SUSTAINABILITY) is already embedded in most American cities and in all probability this is the case in Fort Smith and comes with a dollar membership fee.

Fort Smith City Mayor and Directors are in league with a plethora of government unions, (every division has one). City government does the bidding for unions that set policies that implement & mandate laws & regulations— all without citizens’ general knowledge, much less specifics. The Arkansas Municipal League supports “Sustainability’—all are self-serving and all city governments dance to the attendance of their respective unions & the Chambers of Commerce.

Does anyone believe that City Manager Ray Gosack, Mike Alsup, Richard Griffin, et al coined the phrases QUALITY OF PLACE, SENSE OF PLACE, OR EVENT NODES? Of course not. These phrases and many other similar ones were conceived by the U.N.’s Agenda 21, look no further than Richard Florida and former N. Little Rock Mayor Patrick Hayes, former National president of ICLEI (a major division of Agenda 21/Sustainability) & now a candidate for the U.S congress. They are just 2 of the major disseminators of U.N.’s Agenda 21 lies. ICLEI stands for International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. (note the word…International)

American citizens have no inkling as to the national destruction being precipitated by the implementation of “Sustainability” and city governments are taking full advantage of this fact to further advance power, influence and size of government. Ft. Smith City Mayor & Directors will bow to the Cultural Marxists and betray citizens through the implementation of the Agenda 21, perhaps already hatched.

Prior meetings where the subject was Sustainability (Agenda 21) gave birth to the following quotes: statements from 3 City Directors: Ward 2 Director Good said “I really like the idea of us lending ourselves to the whole Arkansas effort”. Two questions: Does anyone believe that Director Good has a comprehensive understanding of the word Sustainability and exactly what is the “whole Arkansas effort”? At Large Director Settle asked how to combat the program’s appearance of being unfriendly to developers with an increase in regulations? Nothing about citizens’ natural rights and the Director uses the word “appearance”—appearance you say? Ward 1 Keith Lau described the program as “A great idea”…tell us how it is a great idea director.

The above quotations demonstrate the mentality of our local citizen government.


    In addition to absolute control over citizens’ rights & wealth a nexus between government & corporations is being formed & governments are the CEOS…otherwise known as Fascism. Peel back the years and give a look at Nazi Germany in 1939…what’s happening now in our republic is a mirror image of the happenings in Nazi Germany.

Library tax hoax in progress…will taxpayers take the bait?

THE LIBRARY HOAX. August 10, 2014

A projected hijacking without a mask & gun in broad daylight. Of course it is the proposed library tax brought to Fort Smith citizens, at least in part by the Mayor & Board of Directors.

Some citizens have stated that at least 2 members of the official library board have not read the projected budget which is based on an additional $2.8 million in tax money. The chief architects of this grand theft are Library Director Jennifer Goodson & her lackeys.
If the tax is passed in the first year it will produce a $1 million in surplus funds. This figure does not include projected taxes on new homes, new businesses, increases in population, etc.

Chief librarian Goodson should understand that English is the official language of the USA, yet she has outlined in the budget an ongoing budget of $40,000 per year for Spanish language books (illegal Mexicans & other Hispanics) and an additional ongoing $40,000 per year for Vietnamese language books. Taxpayers are in no way constitutionally or morally obligated to spend money in this manner.
She wants to spend $50,000 for customer Self-Check stations at all 4 libraries (reason given: “because some people prefer to self-check themselves out”.


If this tax is implemented the average salary of library employees will be $38,400! Many entry level school teachers & attorneys are not afforded that kind of salary. Included in this salary are the library’s coffee jerks (money losing cafe).

This diatribe could proceed on factually for hours, but readers of this piece should be able to see in the wink of an eye the flimflamming going on in the city library of Fort Smith, AR.

Goodson wants to hire 14 new employees at an average salary of $37,800.

Goodson is proposing $200,000 for raises for current staff to get their salaries “up to market level”. Which “market level” is she referring to? Muldrow, Jonesboro, Chicago or New York? Goodson, a self-serving bureaucrat seems to have no concerns about middleclass Fort Smithians, many of whom have had no raises in an extended time frame and are the ones who subsidize her egregious demands.

This is another instance of government corruption painted with the broad brush of “We Need”, which has no factual basis whatsoever: therefore how many Fort Smithians do you suppose will stupidly give Ms. Goodson & her lackeys $4.213 million (& growing) per year to feather their unseemly political & economic nests?

As with all government, THE FIX IS IN.

Who fed former Mayor Ray Baker, Chambers of Commence directors, City Manager Ray Gosack, Fort Smith Parks Director Mike Alsup, Frontier Engineering and Charles Dilks who has contracted with the Little Rock City Government as Consultant and offered the phrase “Sense of Place”?

Quality of Place is the foundation, while “Sense of Place”, “Event Nodes”, and a multitude of others are by-products of Quality of Place.

Much to my astonishment, thanks to a well-informed lady in Little Rock, I find the very phrases are verbalized around the globe. The link that I submit below uses the aforementioned terms accompanied by in-depth verbiage, in this case being implemented in Istanbul, Turkey.

Beware of a man named Richard Florida. There are some local politicians who have a relationship with the aforementioned.

These phrases are all about stealing Americans freedoms. The politicians, government bureaucrats, and other hired guns are fully aware of the insouciant Americans.

Ask yourself this question: With whom do you believe, for instance, Ray Gosack, Mike Alsup, et al are really aligned? Is it all government employee unions and Globalists dictating the tenor of business for the Congress, the Senate, and the President or do you believe again, for instance, that the Fort Smith City Government really represents the middleclass Fort Smithians in any matter?

The above terms are straight out of U.N.’s Agenda 21 and designed to take total and absolute control of our independence and personal holdings. The City Directors are either moribund or in cahoots with government takeovers.

Most laws and regulations are designed to enhance those individuals that create, install, & enforce the laws & regulations.

Government Newspeak designed to flummox citizens

First we have: July 27, 2014

brought to citizens of Ft. Smith by former Mayor Ray Baker, Paul Beran, City Directors, the Chamber of Commerce, and other notable insiders.

Quality of Place…another eloquent government phrase to confuse citizens by sounding all fuzzy & peachy. Translation: another approach to Urban Renewal in Drag. The little gem “Quality of Place” was delivered to citizens in Dec. 2009. If you missed the point it’s about more government money and control.

July 5, 2014 Fort Smith Parks Director, accompanied by Frontier Engineering delivered to the Fort Smith citizenry EVENT NODES.
Direcector Mike Alsup delivered this gem in promoting the Event Nodes…”where there are benches and you can sit down”….that quote is related to miles long proposed River Trail, followed by “There will be a shade structure so you can get out of the sun”.
How many Fort Smith residents would you believe were overwhelmed by the Event Nodes doublespeak? Event Nodes is camouflage for more funding.

Quality of Place
is now being upstaged by “SENSE OF PLACE”…this offering comes from out-of-town consultant Charles Dilks.
Observe, many if not most consultants have been drummed out of government by retirements and are using their lifelong experiences in government to stick it to the citizens again. Further note that the city of Fort Smith has a propensity for hiring “consultants”.

It would appear that the City Manager, his subordinates along with the City Board of Directors would comprehend city needs and what solutions would attain viable results: therefore why do they need very expensive consultants, who in reality offer nothing but hot air.

The government spins get larger in circumference as the velocity increases.
