Michigan Taxes – Proposal 1

 

Don’t be fooled: Proposal 1 in the May 5 special election would raise the Michigan Sales Tax and the Gas Tax.

Michigan doesn’t need higher taxes to fix our roads or fund our schools. It needs less government spending elsewhere, which it could easily afford.

On Tuesday, May 5th, 2015, Michigan voters will decide whether or not to raise Michigan’s sales tax to 7%.  Supporters of the tax claim Michigan’s roads need the money — but as with the gas tax today, most of the money wouldn’t even go to roads.

In fact, Michigan government annual spending skyrocketed by $2.7 billion since just four years ago — not counting $2 billion higher in federal spending for a whopping $4.7 billion budget increase.

Yet incredibly, taxpayers are now being told by the “Powers That Be” that they need to pay an even greater share of their money, just to fix our roads and fund our schools!

It’s about one thing: more money for the politicians and special interests in Lansing.

That’s why we say:

We are Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan.

And if you’d like your taxes not to rise…

Here then, is the complete set of laws to be decided by the May 5 ballot question. If you can make sense of it all, consider running for office — you’re more qualified than most of them!Proposal 1. To be decided by Michigan voters May 5, 2015Table of Contents

“Student Success Act” to Crush Religious Freedom, Private School Autonomy, Parental Rights

“STUDENT SUCCESS ACT” to CRUSH Religious FREEDOM, Private School AUTONOMY, PARENTAL RIGHTS: #NO on HR5   67 comments

 

This one is such a betrayal.

I’ve never been so shocked and angry over a proposed Congressional bill that I burst into tears.  Not until tonight.

I’d been quietly reading and taking notes on H.R. 5, “Student Success Act” (SSA) when my husband simply, offhandedly asked me how I was doing.   Though I’d been quiet, I was boiling over as I read tucked-away portions of this 600+ page bill which,  despite the local-control-touting, anti-Common Core-sounding words (on page 10 and elsewhere), is terrible. When my husband asked how I was doing, I stood up, walked to the couch and explained through my hot, angry tears what destruction and reduction of vital freedoms will take place if this bill passes:

It ends private schools’ religious freedom from government control.  It harms funding freedom in private schools.  It puts into question parental rights and control over education.  It pushes sameness of testing.  Those are just a few things.  There are more.

We have conscious deceivers in D.C. pushing this bill:  its damages are so painfully ironic.  The bill is touted specifically to “reduce the federal footprint and restore local control while empowering parents“. What a poignant lie.

If H.R. 5 passes this week, in exchange for billions in federal funding, we will be crushed in the following ways.  The federal Department of Education aims to take over:

1.  STATE AUTHORITIES AND RIGHTS 

2.  PARENTAL RIGHTS TO DIRECT EDUCATION OF A CHILD

3.  RELIGIOUS FREEDOM – NO MORE RELIGIOUS COUNSELING, MENTORING OR TECHNOLOGIES ALLOWED IN PRIVATE SCHOOLS

4.  PRIVATE SCHOOL AUTONOMY: GOVERNMENT-APPOINTED OMBUDSMEN WILL MONITOR COMPLIANCE  

5.  PRIVATE SCHOOL FUNDING – PRIVATE SCHOOLS MUST CONSULT WITH PUBLIC DISTRICTS WHICH ENFORCE EQUALITY

H.R. 5  the “Student Success Act” won’t be enforced for five years– plenty of time for its promoters to plan implementation, and for the opposition to burn out, give up, to feel there’s no way to rein it in.

The bill is 600-plus-pages long but was just barely introduced this month; and it’s being fast-tracked for a vote this week.  Those whose lives will be changed by it have likely never heard of it and elected reps haven’t had time to debate intended and unintended consequences.

Would our representatives vote to pass this bill if they knew that it included such hidden away, serious damages to Americans’ freedoms?

I want to thank Ann Marie Banfield of Stop Common Core in New Hampshire, who  sent me her summary and pointed to specific paragraphs and pages in this huge bill, to focus attention on where vital freedoms are being slashed.   I have included her notes following mine.  I  invite you to verify for yourself.

The Great American Adventure Secrets of America

THE GREAT AMERICAN ADVENTURE
SECRETS OF AMERICA
[Political history of government and law]
By Judge Dale, retired
INCLUDES THE ALL IMPORTANT ‘MUST READ’: The Bankruptcy of America – 1933
FOREWORD
The following information provided by Judge Dale (a retired federal judge) is extremely important for all Americans. Since the founding of our country, the ‘elite’ (and their Robber Baron partners) have fabricated our history, taken control of our economy and altered our form of government and legal system.
The Judge describes the people and events responsible for America’s current state of deterioration. It is critical that we come to understand and accept that what has passed for public education in America has merely been indoctrination. While the Judge’s revelations are likely to cause cognitive dissonance in many, learning how our economic and legal systems really work is the only hope our society has to bring an end to the “Babylonian Slave” status currently being imposed on the 99%.
Judge Dale exposes information that is not in our history books and reveals how we can best defend ourselves from the current parasitic corporate government and injustice system. But first people need enough courage to face some very inconvenient truths!
Judge Dale also reveals that “The Illuminati are hell bent upon making Bible Prophecy come true and are responsible for much of the Biblical like devastation that has been occurring around the Earth.” We won’t be able to stop them or even protect
ourselves unless we understand their modus operandi.

I Miss America

I MISS AMERICA

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

I miss the America where surveillance efforts were focused on foreign enemies rather than domestic citizens.

I miss the America where children weren’t routinely kidnapped by hospitals and CPS officials because their parents wanted a second medical opinion or refused to poison their children with chemotherapy.

I miss the America where citizens respected local cops as “peace officers” and local cops existed to “protect and serve.”

I miss the America where veterans were honored and celebrated rather than condemned and medically neglected.

I miss the America where openly pledging your allegiance to the United States Constitution did not result in your name being added to the FBI watch list.

I miss the America where churches believed in God rather than Government.

I miss the America that won World War II and beat back a tyrannical fascist government in the name of freedom and democracy. Today, the occupied American government has become the very same tyrannical fascist bully it once sought to defeat.

I miss the America where doctors actually tried to help people prevent disease rather than taking kickbacks from drug companies to put more patients on more medications.

I miss the America where health insurance was affordable… and voluntary.

FCC & INTERNET, ROAD & SCHOOL TAX

[email I received today, February 13, 2014]

The F.C.C. wants to make the internet a utility and  make better service  but the real reason is reveneue generating and the people paying the bill will not realise any return.

To the editor

I’m requesting you to do any and every thing you can to get the F.C.C. OUT OF THE INTERNET!!
The F.C.C. is proposing to make the internet a utility. If this happens it will only be another cost on the people that they cannot afford at this time and will not improve the internet service.
The F.C.C. can’t even get good programs on the regular t.v. how could they ever hope to control the internet??
It would be a tax savings if the F.C.C. WAS DISSOLVED AND REPLACED WITH NOTHING!

The May 5 2015 proposed Michigan road and school tax needs to be voted down also.
We have been paying to have the roads fixed back before John Engler was governor that was how he got the nickname of “Pot Hole John Engler.”  They have the money; they put it in some other fund or program.
The schools need no more money til they start teaching the kids something. The public schools should be dissolved also and parents will have to get more involved.
The politicians will cry all kinds of propaganda to get your money and you get nothing.
It is obvious we were charged $1.50 to $2.00 too much for gasoline and where did this money and the extra sales tax  go?????

Sent to Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard…………………

Dear Sheriff Bouchard,

It is critical to the survival of our self-governing “Republican” form of government that each County Sheriff scrutinize every action taken against
the citizens in his county for whether their rights have been violated and intervene on their behalf whenever such violations occur.

Michigan State Constitution, to which 83 Sheriffs in Michigan have taken an oath to uphold…
“No person shall be…deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law” –Article I, Section 17.

Black’s Law Dictionary-
DUE PROCESS OF LAW.  “Law in its regular coarse of administration through      courts of justice. …under such safeguards for the  protection of individual rights” In all cases where such deprivation exists it is the sworn duty of our sheriff to intervene on behalf of our citizens, just as Sheriff London has done.

Read his letter to his constituent in the  link below.

I hope this inspires you to do no less for the citizens of Oakland County…we depend on you to protect us against the insidious encroachment on our rights not only from the Federal Government, but from corporate interests as well…especially unscrupulous energy and mortgage companies.

QEG – Quantum Energy Generator

QEG
QEG SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
3-25-2014
The Quantum Electric Generator system (QEG) is an adaptation of one of Nikola Tesla’s many patented electrical generator / dynamo / alternator designs. The particular patent referenced is No. 511,916 titled simply “Electric Generator”, and dated January 2, 1894 (see back of this manual)
.
The adaptation is a conversion from a linear system, to a rotary system.
The QEG prototype is scaled to produce electrical power in the range of 10-15 kW (kilowatts) continuously, and can be set up to provide either 120 Volt or 230-240 Volt single phase output. We are also planning future designs to provide 3 phase power.
Service life of the device is limited only by certain replaceable components, such as bearings, v belts, and capacitors. The basic machine should operate trouble
-free (with minimal maintenance) for as long as any good quality electro mechanical appliance, such as a quality washing machine or refrigerator.  Heavy duty mechanical
components are used throughout for reliability.
The QEG is not a complicated device, as it is designed (like Tesla’s other ‘discoveries’), to work in harmony with natural laws, rather than with the power-wasting symmetric motor and generator designs used in today’s mainstream industry.
An effective way to understand the operating principle of the QEG is to think of it as a high-powered, self-resonant oscillator (a power tank circuit), which generates high-voltage AC (15 to 25kV)  These HV oscillations are then transformed into line voltage AC out put, at current levels up to approximately 85 A. In today’s alternative energy terminology, it would be called a type of resonance machine. The circuitry that develops high power in this device is really based on an existing but under-utilized power oscillator configuration, however, the ‘quantum’ part of the design has to do with how the generator output is
tuned for maximum power.
FullSizeRender-2
Conventional alternators (AC generators) consume more input power than the
output power they provide. For example, one brand of power take off (PTO) alternator uses 18,000 watts (24horsepower) to develop 13,000 watts of output power. In the QEG, input power is used only to maintain resonance in the core, which uses a small fraction of the output power (under 1000 watts to produce 10,000 watts), and once running, the QEG provides this power to its own 1 horsepower motor. This is known as over-unity.
Once the machine builds up to the resonant frequency, it powers itself (self-running)
In the QEG, the exciter coil is used to provide a conduction path through the quantum field (zero point) into the generator core. This has the effect of polarizing the core, which increases power output over time

Michigan Free De jure State  A Layman’s Guide To Jury Nullification

The last stand against tyranny takes place in the jury box.  The legislative branch may pass unconstitutional laws and the judiciary branch may uphold them.  However, the individual citizen can nullify any law via jury nullification. Learn your rights as a juror. Most likely, you will not be told about them in the courtroom! Read More here:  LINK

YOU HAVE POWER IN THE JURY BOX
Jury Nullification is something you’re not told about but it is your RIGHT as jurors to implement. Of course the judges do not want you to know this because they get paid huge money for judgments processed through their courts. It is your duty to JUDGE THE LAW AT THE SAME TIME YOU ARE JUDGING THE DEFENDANT, and perhaps judge the law first if it is a constitutional law that left a “victim” in its wake.  The state can NOT be
the victim!   You have power in the JURY BOX…one of the ways to over-turn tyranny is in the JURY BOX… do not avoid jury duty..accept it and bring true justice to the people… do NOT listen to what the Judge INSTRUCTS you to do..just remember if there is “.no victim there is no crime” no matter what the facts say.  That is the foundation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights…Please watch the very informative video on a

Sent: Thursday, February 20, 2014 10:40 AM Subject: Fwd: Re: great lakes water

Dear Charles,

Thank you for contacting me about prohibiting the sale of water from our Great Lakes. I appreciate that you have taken the time to communicate your views and concerns with me.

I understand your concern about removing water from our Great Lakes, which is already threatened by low water levels. As you may know, the eight Great Lakes states entered the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact in 2008. The Compact contains a provision that bans taking water out of the Great Lakes basin in containers greater than 5.7 gallons, but individual states can decide whether to ban putting water in smaller containers such as bottles. Should the issue of selling water from the Great Lakes or similar legislation comes before me in the U.S. Senate, I will keep your views in mind.

Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.

Sincerely,

The Appeals Court Opinion Has Arrived

THE APPEALS COURT OPINION HAS ARRIVED

From: “Greg Groninger” <ggron@charter.net>
Date: February 5, 2015 at 11:15:16 AM EST
To: <ggron@charter.net>
Subject: The Appeals Court Opinion Has Arrived

So we can all be clear, the case we are talking about here is Groninger et al v. MI. Dept. of Environmental (DEQ).  The DEQ is just like the kid in the schoolyard who likes to start fights knowing Big Brother (Attorney General Bill Schuette and his office) will step in and protect Little Brother (DEQ). Bill Schuette’s office will tell you – by statute – it is his job to defend lawsuits against state agencies. What?? Attorney General Bill Schuette seems to not understand that his FIRST DUTY is to the Constitution of the United States (the supreme law of the land) and the Michigan Constitution. Constitutions are written to protect the rights of the minority from the majority.

To sum up the opinion, the court denied us a jury trial or any trial for that matter.   I would say the opinion also shows the State trustees to be constitutionally and morally bankrupt.

Attached to this e-mail is a copy of the opinion and I have highlighted only five points, of the many points, that could be commented on in this six-page opinion. To make this easy, start on page four. However, before you start reading, let me say this: Do not be confused or intimidated by all the case citation used in this opinion. Many of these citations can be summed-up by one citation used in a case where the fed’s sued the State, U.S. ON BEHALF OF SAGINAW TRIBE v. STATE OF MICHIGAN 106 F.3d 130 (1997). “The defendants (State) follow the familiar model of contemporary legal argument by taking out of context a snippet of language from a Supreme Court opinion and manipulating it to reach a chosen result. They seize on language from…”  Yes, the Attorney General’s office is good at doing this and the court seems to have bought right in.

Comments on points numbered in the opinion.  Please see opinion, then read comment below.

Point #1: When did the Constitution stop being the supreme law of the land? Article VI, § 1, Cl. 2 “This Constitution, … shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby,…”  The State feels “However, the clause is not absolute, but “must be accommodated to the inherent police power of the State to safeguard the vital interests of its people.”  Sounds like we are being told we live in a police state and the Constitution is not relevant. To see where they think they get their police power authority, see point #4

Point #2: It is clear the State does not understand – or wants to twist the meaning of – FEE SIMPLE.  Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd, Edition, pg. 487) Fee Simple- “Absolute is an estate, which is limited absolutely to a man and his heirs and assigns forever, without any limitation or condition.” Seems to me when the DEQ wants to come on to my property and determine IF I can or cannot build a driveway this would be a “limitation or condition”.

Consider Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd, Edition, pg. 955) what is property. – Property, “Rightful dominion over external objects; ownership; the unrestricted and exclusive right to a thing; the right to dispose of the substance of a thing in every legal way, to possess it, to use it, and to exclude everyone else from interfering with it.”

Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd, Edition pg. 694) “LAND, in the most general sense, comprehends any ground, soil, or earth whatsoever; as meadows, pastures, woods, moors, waters, marshes, furzes and heath. The word “land” includes not only the soil, but everything attached to it, whether attached by the course of’ nature, as, trees, herbage, and water, or by the hand of man as buildings and fences.”

Point #3 This statement by the courts is very telling as to how they feel about private property. “Additionally, plaintiffs Groninger have not shown any reduction in the value of their property because defendant may enter the land to inspect whether it is wetland nor have they shown that any failure to issue a permit would reduce the value of their property. Even if they did, “[a] reduction in the value of the regulated property is insufficient, standing alone, to establish a compensable regulatory taking.”  The State Trustees are saying to us, we can take it if we want it and the Constitution cannot stop us.

Point #4: The Attorney General Bill Schuette is claiming the Michigan Constitution Art. IV § 52 gives the state police power over private property.

Art. IV § 52 states the following: “The conservation and development of the natural resources of the state (society of men) are hereby declared to be of paramount public concern in the interest of the health, safety and general welfare of the people. The legislature shall provide for the protection of the air, water and other natural resources of the state from pollution, impairment and destruction.”  (added by gdg)  STATE, n. Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd, Edition pg. 1105) “A body politic, or society of men, …”OF, Webster’s Dictionary 1828:  “From or out of; proceeding from, as the cause, source, means, author or agent bestowing.”

Does this sound like the state trustees were given any police powers over your private property or just the property owned by all of us, the Michigan society of men?  Will they next say they have the police power to come and develop your land?

The State is a society of men, not a land mass. This means the boundary of Michigan is the defining line of who can be a member of the society of men we call the State of Michigan.

Point #5 “Plaintiffs make a number of other arguments, which fail principally because defendant is a state regulator empowered by a state statute.” Seems they did not have any comments about the IX Amendment “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” It is very apparent; if it is not clearly called out in the Constitution, it belongs to the people undiminished.

Folks, it is up to us, the society of men, to stop this unconstitutional taking of your private property. All these folks (Attorney General, Judges, Governor, State Legislators…) who work for us, took an Oath before we allowed them to work for us.  We must hold them to their Oath’s; it is our duty to our children and grandchildren. What you are seeing is one of the most powerful tools the state uses to move the agenda of Agenda 21 forward in our great State.

What can you do?  Call, write or do both the Michigan Attorney General and let him know how you feel. His contact information is below. If you do not know, what Agenda 21 is then please looking into it.

Samuel Adams, who famously uttered,
“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in the minds of men.”

“Behind the Green Mask About Agenda 21” by Rosa Koire

1835 Seal for Michigan Free De Jure StateIn order for us to continue to build our De Jure Republic we must understand the enemy within that is usurping everything good about the united States of America; Michigan is perhaps in greater danger because of the defacto policies that have been incorporated into our state since it’s inception. Michigan was the pilot police state for other states. Please listen to the following information (link below) that was emailed to me.  Education is key to success! The title of the video is different than the title for this post. The reason for the change is because the emphasis needs to be put on the book written by Rosa Koire and not the theatrics for infowars.  Please also go to the page “NOTICE” to see what was sent to the Michigan Congress concerning the “Free Zone” established by DHS.  We really need to become more active in our local communities, it’s not too late if we become proactive!  “FOCUS LOCALLY, GO OBSERVE, LET THEM KNOW YOUR PAYING ATTENTION AND TAKE ACTION BY BECOMING AWARE AND MAKE OTHERS AWARE.  THE PLAN IS CONTINGENT ON OUR IGNORANCE!”

 

BEHIND THE GREEN MASK ABOUT AGENDA 21

Pertinent comments from video:

3 days ago –  Here in Orlando FL, we just got the Sun Rail. Plus we have a bunch of square shaped, 4 story apartment buildings popping up everywhere around the train stations & urban centers. The rent for these new apartments is $1,500 a month, which is ridiculous because Orlando is mostly low wage service jobs. I assume they want 10 people to live inside these new coffin apartments. Meanwhile they have completely stopped building houses in the suburbs. To the average sheep this looks like regular growth. To me this screams of Agenda21.

1 hour ago – I live in the country in SC and they paved our road.  Next thing, where there were a bunch of deer blinds and land has a bunch of flourescent pink ribbon around the area saying the land belongs to SC Wildlife…and a bunch of signs saying NO TRESPASSING & NO HUNTING!!!!!  This is BIG TIME HUNTING COUNTRY!!!!  I see a problem coming!  Right now it screams Agenda 21!

23 hours ago – In Upper Makefield Pa we have what’s called the Jointure, started in 1970, it combines three townships, Newtown, Upper Makefield and Wrightstown. It is promoted as necessary for planning. For instance if the township that has the industry is putting pollution in the water upstream from the other townships then this jointure can prevent such things. It can be interpreted that this Jointure is the beginning of the consolidation of local control.

15 hours ago – I looked up my town like Rosa said. The planning dept had an announcement that said they were changing the name of the city’s plan from Tyler 21 to Tyler 1st! Yep. Just like Rosa said. Also, they had an announcement about zoning for multi-use zoning for business/commercial/residential building.

[ put your town name in the search engine with sustainability, high rail, sustainable growth etc and this will tell you what is planned for your community.]
