County Commissioner Will Take Jail — Denied Relgious Rights

By John McMillen:

Here is an excellent story and example of how “we the people” take our country back from the unconstitutional judges and other unconstitutional authoritarian nationalists.

America was not established with a “National” government.  We were established as a “REPUBLIC.”  If you want to learn more about how you can help save our Republic, please contact me.

Who and how many today have the correct understanding of the form of government as originally founded, and how far we’ve strayed from that original framework? How many understand our responsibilities we as citizens equally share for preserving our individual liberty? Who has a correct understanding our State constitution as well as our U.S. Constitution? Who has a correct account of our history as a nation?  If we remain quiet under the pervasive misconceptions that exists today of the constitutional authority of federal judges, how can we remain free?  If you don’t know when federal judges are overstepping their bounds, how can you resist? How many truly understand the scope and legitimacy that “THE PEOPLE” hold as the last line of defense of our liberty? How many understand that in “THE PEOPLE” resides the ultimate power over all those who have abused their power over us, and that we can resist and change the course we are going?

Lethargy, and Apathy are the forerunner of death to a REPUBLIC and individual liberty. …How can we preserve our liberties,if we remain uninformed?


Please read this excellent example to follow, if we are to save our REPUBLIC and regain our individual liberty. If you’ve read it already.  Please share it with others.

Why Are You So Political?

By John McMillen

My wife and others repeatedly question me asking, “Why are you so ‘Political’?” … this is the great disconnect in America today.I ask them, “Why do you call it ‘being Political?’” …like I should do anything and everything to avoid that label.

I ask them, “Why do you call it ‘being political?’”

I call it being a Christian American citizen.

Benjamin Franklin and all the noted founders told us they were giving us a government of “Freedom and Liberty”, but it would be up US (that’s YOU, that’s ME) “the American Citizen” to KEEP IT – not the politician, not the Governor, not the president.

If “WE” are not informed and don’t stay informed, we are headed to a destination in America that is shown in the clip below from Marco Rubio.  On the Senate floor, Rubio reminds us that we aredangerously close to the last gasps of life for Freedom and Liberty in America.  And this current form of government is working 24/7 to transform us into the nation that is shown here in this short clip.

I am just one man. I can’t do everything, but I can do something — at least one thing.  And it is my duty as a Christian and an American Citizen to do ‘something’.  Whatever I can do, I must do, and by the will and power of God, I will do.

An Open Letter To Representative Mike Lair

By David Epps

Homogeneity is good for milk not for a population!

Nazi Germany goose stepped into oblivion because of their highly regimented and homogeneous society was unable to counter the innovation by the allies on the battlefield.

  • The USSR fell because they attempted to standardize the population’s thinking.
  • The USA is lagging because all children are being taught the same mistakes.

China’s and Russia’s economy are now booming because of the now permitted entrepreneurial and enterprising thinking.

Common core is just a way to homogenize the spirit.

If all milk was homogenized then where would we get creme and butter or cheese and yogurt?

Those MAP tests teach that it is OK to keep secrets from the parents. That advertising is propaganda like the posters and announcements and speeches that sent 6M Jews to the gas chambers in WWII was just good advertising… …and the environmental agenda espoused in the tests is just flat wrong.

Two examples of bad teaching on the environment

1. Dinosaurs were huge because of all the oxygen from all the plants sucking down all that CO2

Wrong – It was because the plants provided an abundant food supply. An organism must regulate its intake of oxygen because it is toxic in large quantities

2. Butterflies are rare because there is insufficient open space

Wrong – Butterflies are rare because they eat milk weed which is aggressively eradicated because the milk in the weed can cause blindness in children.

When it comes to centralized planning as with Common Core and MAP test materials the question is: Who watches the watchers?????

I would suggest sir that you take off the tinfoil hat and study the far ranging implications of standardizing the education in America.

Conformity is the hob-goblin of a small mind!

TTTT Takeaway Activism and Notes – January 2014


After the excitement of our meeting in November 2012, 17 CCTP members took Level 1 of the Pathway To Self-Governance training offered by the Center for Self Governance.  7 CCTP members made it through all 5 levels of the training program during 2013.  It has been an exciting journey!

We urge you to at least take Level 1 of the Center for Self-Governance training.  It will change the way you view your governing bodies as well as your view of your position and participation in the governing process


Working Meeting:

Tonight’s meeting was another working meeting.  The goal here was to review and approve (or reject) the legislative items sponsored or co-sponsored by Cape County’s Missouri House and Senate members – Donna Lichtenegger, Kathy Swan, and Wayne Wallingford.  A few bills proposed by other legislators were added to the list.


  • Put together list of the bills
  • Reviewed them quickly
  • Used our laptops to get additional information on the bills from the House and Senate web sites
  • Came up with a consensus or took a vote to decide whether our representatives should vote for or against the bill

We obviously knew that, with the few minutes we had to work on the effort, we could easily end up with an incorrect decision.  But, the effort was enjoyable, and the decisions likely in line with the CCTP goals of Fiscal Responsibility, Founding Principles, and Constitutionally Limited Government under God.

When reviewing the decisions of the group, most of the responses were quite emphatic.

Click below to see the bills that were reviewed and the decisions of the group.  We hope to complete similar efforts in the future.

Hello Newman

By John McMillen:

The typical response from statist politicians when someone pierces the lies in their political rhetoric, with truth and accurate analogies, is to personally attack the one who does so. Only 10 percent of “perception” is objective substantive reality, or truth. Holly Rehder told her constituents the truth about Jay Nixon. She does not need any admonishment from a biased liberal Stacey Newman, state representative of the 87th District, 120 miles removed from Holly’s district.

Jay Nixon indeed has withheld $600 million in education funding since 2009 to create a negative situation he can blame republicans for. “Tax ‘em out of business liberals” like Nixon and Stacey Newman know the news media won’t condemn them for their lies. They rely heavily on emotional fear inducing rhetoric and misrepresentations to deceive citizens with their purposeful lies designed to demonize their political opponents. Just say: “Republicans want to throw Granny off the cliff, destroy education funding, and hurt the poor,” and you’ll get a favorable press eagerly amplifying those words to solidify the misconception beneficial to liberals.

State Rep. Stacy Newman should apologize for playing the “Holocaust Card” and Jay Nixon should apologize for lying to us. Any Jewish citizen who truly suffered under Hitler will tell you it all began when a public sentiment of hate and loathing was created against them by Hitler’s false propaganda machine. They’d be the first to warn you about the injustice of letting designing, deceitful politicians form a general consensus of ill will toward you with false assertions.

Fair Tax Information For Your Congressman

By John McMillen:

Erick, I was told you are the legislative aid on Taxes to my Representative, Jason Smith.

I am Vice-Chair of the Scott County Missouri Republican Committee.  I got acquainted with Jason when he was running for the republican 8th district nomination.  I spoke to him about taxes during the course of that time, but told him I wouldn’t bug him about it during that special election process.  I’ve waited until Jason got his feet on the ground in D C as I’m sure there has been a lot of stress in getting settled in, and getting acquainted with the political landscape there.

I’m sure that Jason agrees that the current tax code is a nightmare and has to be reformed.  I’m convinced it must be replaced entirely. Please find attached my remarks explaining why the IRS Income tax code is an anti-American, anti-republic, anti-individual, anti-capitalist, anti-business bureaucracy that has grown into a wholly owned anti-conservative subsidiary solely devoted to and controlled by the left wing of the socialist democrat party. I hope you will take the time to read it fully and thoughtfully.

Also here’s a video link to a tax debate between the Flat Tax and the FairTax recently in Bixby, Oklahoma. (Tulsa)

BTW, All Kansas US Representatives and Senators have 100% endorsed (Co-Sponsors) We have got to step it up in Missouri. To date we have three US Representatives who are cosponsors: Ann Wagner, Sam Graves, and Billy Long. (We need Jason Smith’s name added to that list.)

Complete list of the 70 US Representative who currently co-sponsor here:

I have written the attached narrative titled “Why The National Income Tax and the 16th Amendment Must Be Abolished” to explain the philosophy behind it.

In addition to that, here’s a link to the 35 page tax code under the Fairtax  HR-25 bill.   written in layman’s English. It would be good to study it, and learn the details of the bill to get some in depth knowledge of what it actually is and what it is not.

The Fairtax HR-25 deserves your and Jason’s thorough education of every aspect of it…the TRUTH of it; not what critics have labeled it falsely as being.

The MO-8th deserves fair treatment and serious consideration of the Fairtax. If you and our Representative Jason Smith honestly believe the ‘income tax’ is a more American values form of taxation over the Fairtax, then we deserve an honest and open explanation of why you think so,  backed up and demonstrated with documented evidence, not mere political rhetoric.

I will follow up with a phone call to you personally Friday 9-06-13 to see if you’ve had a chance to review any of the material and possibly have questions I can assist you with.

Here are some additional links you will find are very helpful in understanding and knowing the Truth.   (questions and answers)

Study the Prebate in depth here:

Tons of factual information to be found there.

Thank you sir,
John McMillen

Do Not Support Obama’s Military Action Against Syria – David Epps

By David Epps:

Here is my letter regarding the subject
Use this link to send one of your own if you like.

Dear Jason Smith,

Do not support Obama’s military action against Syria.h/t
America’s sovereignty has not been violated!
Obama has been creating this war.

The situation in Syria is extremely fluid and Obama’s trigger happy action would be unjust and unwarranted, ill advised, ineffective, and mis-targeted!

1. The rebels have been killing Christians and destroying their towns since the beginning of 2012.
2. This started with the Arab Spring movement and now Al Qeada, and the Muslim brotherhood are involved.
3. The house of Saud and The Arab League wants the US to intervene when they could just as easily take action.
4. The US has been supplying arms to the rebels via Benghazi.
5. Jonathan Steele (17 January 2012). “Most Syrians back President Assad, but you’d never know from western media”. The Guardian.
6. In April 2008, Assad told a Qatari newspaper that Syria and Israel had been discussing a peace treaty for a year, with Turkey as a go-between.
7. In February 2011, Bashar backed an initiative to restore 10 synagogues in Syria
8. On 18 May 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama signed an Executive order putting into effect sanctions against Bashar al-Assad.
9. Obama knew there were WMD in Syria. The Syrian military stores WMD at a base on the outskirts of Aleppo. June 21, 2013 “The situation in Aleppo is very hot” according to spokesman for Aleppo’s Northern Storm Brigade.
10. The Islamic Ahrar al-Sham Movement is strongest in Aleppo but is smaller than many other factions throughout the country.  It seeks an Islamic state based on sharia law contrary to other factions that want an elected government.
11. The The Islamic Ahrar al-Sham Movement rebels gained access to the WMD and attacked on August 21, 2013.
12. On the question to launch attack against Syria – UN Security Council: NO, NATO: NO, China: NO, Russia: NO, Jordan: NO, Cyprus: NO, United Kingdom: NO, Canada: NO, Poland: NO, Czech Republic: NO, Finland: NO, Germany: NO, Sweden: NO, Netherlands: NO, Italy: NO, Spain: NO, Portugal: NO, France: delay, vote

Beginning in January 2011, The Arab Spring has affected the following countries: Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, Jordan, Oman, Mauritania, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Sudan, Palestinian authority,l Iraq, Bahrain, Libya, Kuwait, Western Sahara, Iranian Khuzestan, Borders of Israel

Keep in mind Obama’s incitement to riot of June 4, 2009:
“That does not lessen my commitment, however, to governments that reflect the will of the people…. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere.”

Keep in mind Obama’s January 2011 orchestration of the overthrow of Egyptian government
“The White House executed a nuanced and carefully balanced series of statements designed to encourage the fall of Mubarak and begin Egypt on a course toward democratic change. “

Keep in mind that Obama was and may be still shipping weapons to Syrian rebels via Benghazi. “June 21, 2013 Rebels said the new weapons had already given them a boost. Ahmed al-Kateeb, a spokesman for Aleppo’s Northern Storm Brigade — whose leaders met with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during his brief visit to Syria last month — said the group had launched attacks overnight Thursday at several locations on the long, static front line between regime- and rebel-held areas of Aleppo (location of WMD stockpile) after receiving a delivery including ammunition and Russian-designed wire-guided Konkurs antitank weapons.

Here is the bottom line.

Syria’s has stockpiled approximately 1,000 tonnes of chemical weapons, stored in 50 towns and cities  Any attack by the US short of ground troops will not secure the WMD, WMD is in the rebel, Al Qeada, and the Muslim brotherhood’s hands. The cat is out of the bag.

Obama put US in harms way by not thinking about the presence of WMD in Syria when he began his instigating the overthrow of countries.

“One senior State Department official, though, told Fox News that the president’s goal to take military action will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes to approve the use of force.”

Force Obama to carry out his threat or lose face. His act will be impeachable! His foreign policy which put the US in harms way is treasonous.

Your task is to devise a strategy to put the cat back in the bag!!!! The only way that I see to put the cat back in the bag is to ally with Assad and not blow him or the chemicals up risking collateral damage beyond measure but to secure whats left and dispose of him and them safely.
