Tribal analogy for the republic
- I come from a anarchist POV- no rule by corporations, govt, banks, military, or people. Problem is with my own logic... I may be capable of living on an island with a few others.... but at some point, no matter how you try to justify it a council or order will in fact arrive. Tribal leaders, consul of elders, or even in the form of a chore list for the community. The only perfect example of anarchy is to be Grizzly Adams and hide by yourself deep in the woods, AND HOPE another larger tribe doesn't find your stash of nuts and berries for winter. Human nature doesn't change, and you can't force it either. Some version of governance will find its way into a community. Individuality, individual needs, ideas, and personality- operating inside a collective environment- will always have issues. I don't think you can ever change that, and more laws won't either.
The framers of our republic had that basic idea. Your tribe in your city can make it's own chore list. You then have a consul of elders within the state. The representatives of that state meet in central location (DC) to agree on tribal treaties.
Some great reads on how native tribes in the states helped shape our republic...
As much as it pains.. It is in fact the best system, but by its simplicity also allows it by design to be co/opted. That's why local tribal leaders in local cities is where we need to focus all our energy. The system can still be easily fixed... The problem is most think we have a democracy. Democracy has leaders therefore we get spoon fed idea's like it's "trump's white house" or "Obama's regime". We are actually fighting a non existent system. There is no federal govt. If that was the case me here in CA should be able to vote out McCain or someone in Texas vote out my Pelosi. You WANT local tribes fighting over local tribal issues.
- You WANT a house divided and you do NOT want reaching across the isle. Law makers make law's... its what they do. The more laws we allow them to pass, the more tyrannical or fascist it becomes. Call the system anything you choose or blame who ever or whatever you want, when we focus on an imaginary democracy we by instinct see a single leader... the lawmakers reaching across the isle can be easily bought and manipulated if all the focus is on the leader. We have a republic... we have local tribes... we have representatives from local tribes that are easily reached and just as easily forced to comply by you when you show up in mass as anyone out there. Want to blame banks, illuminati, military, skull/bones, cults, religious ideology... it does not matter... you still have a local tribal system you can still reach to this day. Designed to allow you and me to be representatives of the local tribe. REMEMBER... we wanted farmers and framers and dairymen up there originally. What happened.?? We allowed the system to take our eyes off the local system and focus us onto the one we actually do not ever really get to vote for.
We've been sold a talking point that's infiltrated every tribe to do one thing, and you can blame who you want, to keep you and me from showing up to local tee-pee (town hall) gatherings.
It'll be when the majority realize they've been chasing the wrong rabbit that the mess will be fixed.
Ask me though... after years of trying to explain it.... I'd be lucky if only 3 heard it. Votes matter... it's where it matters that's important. And that's why they (who ever you choose to blame) keep winning.
All sides of the equation can learn something from this. There's over 3000+ tribes in the US union, but there's only 535 tribal representatives that meet in DC though. Over 300 million people within those local tribes somehow over a hundred+ years allowed us to forget this fact. There's only ONE person up there where all 300mil actually vote for. This is supposed to be the tie breaker of the tribal treaties. To either allow or deny what they want to cross across state lines. So what or who do you actually vote for.
FROM THE LAW-
You are voting for a local system when you vote for presidents... you are not voting for a leader. By the law of the land... you are keeping the system (no matter who you blame) in control at a local level when you vote once each 4 years. Example: it was Bill Clinton's electors that selected Obama. Primaries become a vetting tool for the party because you're not voting for Hilary or Trump, you voted for the party they represent. THE PARTY CONTROLS THE PRIMARY PROCESS. This is where your vote really doesnt matter. If this was a voice of yours... Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders would have been president. We are voting for the party and the "selected" person from THEM... your really voting for the cheerleader and the person to sell their wares. You are no longer voting for the deal breaker... your voting for the deal sealer. All the while forgetting who holds the real power.
Selectors and electors... Want to fix the system- you need to focus on the electors which are the selectors. The first term everyone should research is BY AND WITH CONSENT, or ADVICE AND CONSENT. (2 great stories on this process in the senate archives). You find out that the party (again a local tribal system) doesnt just select the president through the primary system... the local tribe also selects ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States,. In short... a committee inside the congress gives the president a list to pick from. Every Director of every agency is also under the same title/law advice and consent. The VP- Mike Pence... has an actual title. President of the Senate. He actually becomes more important than the president because he's there in the senate during the selection process. If you want to know why there's swamp creatures up there around Trump... its not because of Trump. Pence was on the congressional floor long before Trump was and the 115th Congress was already working long before the inauguration. How did Pence get in there... was it really Trump... or also part of the "advice and consent" process.?? The president is given a list... he interviews that person... then the senate or selection process nominate him/her.
WITH ADVICE AND CONSENT... ???? VP is also selected by the local tribe...
* “This is a weighty responsibility, and it cannot be rushed,” said Bob Bauer, the former Obama-campaign general counsel, on Friday. He noted that campaigns need at least eight weeks to assemble a roster, let the candidate get acquainted with potential VPs, and fully vet the favorites. This year, the conventions are earlier than usual; late May marks eight weeks before they start. Really, Obama campaign vet Anita Dunn told me this week, starting now is even a “little late.”
Bauer and Dunn, who are husband and wife, are part of a Bipartisan Policy Center working group that met Friday to share advice on proper VP selection; the panel coincided with the release of a formal report of the group’s recommendations. The impetus for their offering? Campaigns haven’t standardized how vice-presidential selection should be done. This is true even though the operatives often stay the same
they are not part of the executive departments
AUTO-PILOT programs only funded by... either outside or by tax dollars
A very small list of some of these
There's NOTHING "federal" about the federal reserve... there's NOTHING "federal" about any of the INDEPENDENT agencies. Very far removed from the president. It was no more Bush's FEMA, Obama's EPA, or nor will it be Trumps CIA. If you go to each agency and read the functions of what a "director" does... you will find a few things. The most call us a customer and directors are really there to monitor the budget. The bulk of what you consider "federal" is ran by contractors and only your local tribal leaders can do is either fund them or defund them. It takes a law to change a law... and each of these agencies were created by a law by very local tribal systems.
POWER OF THE PURSE... This is where the power in Washington comes from. Always has and still does to this day. Nothing has changed, nothing is broken and nothing is wrong with the system. When you follow the legislative process instead of the puppet show they put on TV you find out its all working according to plan. The problem is that big players have a lot at stake in the game to keep you from the local tee-pee gatherings. THIS is your current 115th Congress. When called by its official name... you can see the republic... you see the local tribe. Call the agencies by their official name INDEPENDENT and you see the privatization. You do not have a democracy... you do not have a single leader... and all power of the system lies very very local spread out across all 50 states... all 3000+ counties.
IF PRESIDENTS HAD POWER... Something to consider. Why is Gitmo still open, and why is the drone program still in the hands of the private contractor of the CIA???
- I challenge any one to read any of the over 50+ NDAA's. They're annual... and they actually dictate to the president what he'll do throughout that particular year. Trump has marching orders as well this year. The NDAA put this statement on steroids- "its not the job of the president". Everything from an agencies creation to executive orders... all of it. If a president goes outside the scope of the NDAA's pre-approval it still has to get that approval of congress. Orders go directly to the House because of funding issues, memoranda's go to the DOJ for review before going to the House for funding. Gitmo... your proof it doesnt even need to go to the supreme court for review. If you have a local tribe up there who is on point with the state treaty process... EO's become a scape goat... "OOOPS... the president signed an EO... nothing i can do". FALSE... THEY ALLOWED IT. Here's is Trump's marching orders for the year of 2017
CONCLUSION AND SOLUTION
1st we're voting in the wrong process and voting for the wrong treaty system. Local tribal leaders can not be voted on by anyone else but you. YOU become the source of the problem if you allow this process to continue by blaming the weakest link and not actually going to the local tee-pee (town hall) gatherings. The mid-terms become more crucial than the one most turn up for. 2 years away... and a lot of work that needs to get done from now until then.
2nd: You need to change the local district of the selection process. During the every 4th year vote... vote outside the entrenched system. A vote for Trump was a vote for the establishment, a vote for Hilary was a vote for the same thing. It did not matter who sits in that seat... their agenda was already written in stone by the last congress (same as the current). The faces for the camera are all that changed... and none of them actually have any authority. Auto pilot programs can't change unless your local tribes agree to change them. A vote for Bernie, a vote for Stein, Johnson, or even Andrew Basiago... NONE OF THEM UP THERE WOULD HAVE CHANGED A SINGLE THING... just a face for the camera. THEIR agenda was already written in stone. What happens with a 3rd party vote outside the duality though. It changes the electors, which in turn changes the redistricting process. What you do is locally change how the NEXT ELECTION is going to lay out. Its like putting a challenge in place to the establishment. Its going to be just as hard to get a 3rd party in there in 4 years because we voted for the establishment last November.
3rd: its important to know where votes matter, and where they do not. Votes do not matter in the primaries. The party is going to select their spokesperson BY LAW... no matter how you vote in this system. November they do... this too is BY LAW. Remember, you do not vote for a leader- you vote for the selection process later on down the line. They have no power up there. Never have never will. You need to look at voting as a business. How do you want the company to look 4 years down the road. Competition creates a better working process for the free market. So you do not really want to vote for the same thing thats driven us to this point to be so divided. We are choosing between coke and pepsi now because of how they worked the system... but... its still cola. Change it to 7up if you want that free market if you really want change.
VOTE LOCAL AND STAY LOCAL and ignore the lesser evil voting. It really did not matter who sat there... at all. You really are not wasting a vote to get outside this system
4th... ARE YOU ALL FREAKED OUT BY TRUMP RIGHT NOW... ??? !!!! OR REALLY EXCITED
- Obama did this... was famous for it... is Trump really signing "orders" outside the NDAA or is he signing "actions" like Obama??
The use of executive actions by the president of the United States came under intense scrutiny during Barack Obama's two terms in office. But many critics misunderstood the definition of executive actions and the difference with legally binding executive orders.
Obama issued dozens of executive actions designed to prevent gun violence in January 2016, fulfilling one of his primary agenda items. Many of the media reports mistakenly described the policy proposals as official executive orders, which are legally binding directives from the president to federal administrative agencies.
The Obama administration, however, described the proposals as executive actions. And those executive actions – ranging from universal background checks on anyone trying to buy guns, restoring a ban on military-style assault weapons, and cracking down on straw purchases of guns by people whose intention is to resell them to criminals – carried none of the weight executive orders carry.
