C4L Citizens' Petition for Redress of Grievance

Dear Governor Nixon and Attorney General Koster,

I was outraged when I recently learned that supporters of Campaign for Liberty and Congressman Ron Paul had been labeled as security threats in a report released by the Missouri Information Analysis Center.

Titled, "The Modern Militia Movement" and released on February 20, 2009, the report was disseminated to law enforcement officers throughout the state of Missouri. In the report, law enforcement is told that violent militia members are "usually" supporters of past presidential candidates like Ron Paul and can be seen with Campaign for Liberty materials.

Both Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty champion principles of freedom, peace, and prosperity. We believe that the Founder's vision for America can be reclaimed through education and peaceful activism.

Simply supporting the Constitution does not make you worthy of a watch list; it makes you a Patriot.

It is time for the Missouri government to hear our voices and rein in reckless bureaucrats before they single out Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty members again.

I will not support politicians who label me and others like me who love freedom and liberty as "threats" to security and place me in the same category as hate groups. It is important that you recognize the gross injustice that has taken place and, on behalf of the state of Missouri, swiftly issue a formal apology to both Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty members.

I strongly urge you to take hold of this situation and on behalf of the state of Missouri, issue a formal apology to the Campaign for Liberty and Ron Paul.

Thank you,

Seem like they are acting as the terrorist. Remember The county Sheriff, his authority superceeds any state and federal agency.

The duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county. He has law enforcement powers that exceed that of any other state or federal official.

Good advice

in this thread. Sign the petition please.

Also, when dealing with reporters/media:

Always remind them that when a government gets too much power, journalists are executed first.

Thank you for posting again. This has been posted and is

probably viral now. That is just great. I am also receiving this same post as emails from various people and yahoo groups I am connected with. So its all good work. I signed this yesterday.

Sign the CFL Petition for Redress of Grievance Re:MIAC!!

Please sign the Petition for Redress and then scroll below for valuable info on Fusion Centers! PLEASE check out the links provided in my post below!

Did you know? There are 58 of these centers across the U.S. and there have already been several cases ( Maryland and Texas ) where due to the Fusion Center "profiling" of various non-violent activist groups the police have overstepped their bounds! ( see links below) This is a bi-partisan concern that will help many wake-up to the abuses of our Government and a rallying cry for Liberty!!

Let's push the tempo that has gained ground on this issue! Help make Missouri our " Line in the Sand! "

Report: Discussion with Lieutenant Platte at MIAC

Today I called MIAC at 866-362-6422 and spoke with Lt. Platte who has apparently been assigned as a P.R. person handling this issue - the 'Strategic Report'* about 'The Modern Militia Movement.' He said he could not provide me with a copy of the original MIAC document because it was "for Missouri police only" and that it had "leaked" into the public.

When I asked Mr. Platte if it is true that Ron Paul and C4L were specifically named in the document he said, "The document may have mentioned them, but I can't recall if it does or doesn't. I don't have it in front of me."

The Lieutenant also said twice that we (C4L members and Dr. Paul) are not being profiled in the document and that the intent of the document has been "misrepresented."

At the end of the conversation I asked Mr. Platte if it is true that Missouri police are required to uphold the U.S. Constitution. He answered in the affirmative.

I have now read the document* and I doubt any Americans would believe what Mr. Platte told me if they too would read it.

Follow up !!!


Campbell, if you're an MD, MS, then you're a bright guy. You are also probably not very confrontational.

So I offer this challenge to you, or other Missouri residents to call Lt. Platt and hold his feet to the fire. You have his name and number in the original post (above).

He said he could not provide me with a copy of the original MIAC document because it was "for Missouri police only" and that it had "leaked" into the public.

Your response should be, "I have a copy in front of me. Let's go through it together and you can explain some of its contents."

When I asked Mr. Platte if it is true that Ron Paul and C4L were specifically named in the document he said, "The document may have mentioned them, but I can't recall if it does or doesn't. I don't have it in front of me."

Right, and the dog ate his homework. This is B.S. The appropriate response would be, "OK then. When will you have a copy in front of you so we can go through it together?" (Be prepared to tape record his responses). Pin him down! Don't let him skate off with, "Oh gee, it's not here. It's a lie. He has it and he knows what's in it."

The Lieutenant also said twice that we (C4L members and Dr. Paul) are not being profiled in the document and that the intent of the document has been "misrepresented."

And he said this from what he 'remembered' from reading the document? How was the intent 'misrepresented?" Explain that, Lieutenant. How?

At the end of the conversation I asked Mr. Platte if it is true that Missouri police are required to uphold the U.S. Constitution. He answered in the affirmative.

Well DUH. What else would he say? "Oh no, we do not follow it at all?"

Here are my suggestions to my friends in Missouri. First, this story is too important for a well-meaning Daily Paul member to call on his own. The Lieutenant made short work of you - that's his job. And you didn't press him well. I am not complaining, that is not your job. You called to ask good questions and the guy dissed you, professionally.

1. Call your local TV and Radio stations and Daily newspapers. Ask to speak with the Assignment Editor (important). Explain what's going on with this document and offer to email or FAX a copy to them. Add that you have spoken with Lieutenant Pratt and he gave you a fast shuffle, without answering anything substantively.

2, Offer to come down to the TV/Radio/Newspaper office and meet them face-to-face. Explain that our liberties are being infringed and that people who read the Constitution are being profiled. That will get their attention.

3. Call Lt. Pratt from the TV/Radio/Newspaper outlet, with reporters listening in - making sure they have the documents in front of them. If the Lieutenant tries to snowball you again, let the reporter or editor take over. They know how to throw fastballs and they aim at the head. This guy needs a grilling and I'm afraid you didn't give him one.

Good luck, Missouri!

Thanks Michael Nystrom

I signed petition! There's another DP thread http://www.dailypaul.com/node/86539 " I gave my mom 84 the bad news " I think they have a good idea!! do you know where to find the info/video's of Dr. Paul doing these interviews/speech's with these senior citizens that supported him during the Prez campaign,I think if some one could contact these seniors and do another video'd interview with them finding out that they are now on a watch list could make for some very interresting comments,that we could put on youtube and other sites.What do you think? I checked on youtube for the 2008 Prez,campaign senior citizen's video's but came up blank.

bump for Michael!!

:o)

If

we could only prove that Michael Chertoff and the ADL are the ring leaders in this slander we could make them eat every word.
I bet FOX would be up for it.
Someone said earlier that the ADL wrote the report, can we prove that?

Google ~MIAC Ron Paul
There are pages and pages where you can see how this is spreading on the net since last week! I would expect the MSM will pick this up from having various groups sending out press release statements to the MSM.
As well, individuals such as ourselves need to be sending out the story to MSM , radio and newspapers and all our personal contacts asking them to do the same.
The first one to break the story was Alex Jones, but due to some peoples opinion of him it was not believed by many for several days..meanwhile many others took it upon themselves to start digging for info to find out as much as possible about it instead of arguing over AJ's report or waiting for others to verify or discredit. It's called "personal responsibility". I think everyone here knows how to use google.. lol!

The first group that I saw that has been a leader in taking action is this group ..they called, investigated, came up with a press release and action plan ASAP! Many thanks to the Liberty Restoration Project for thier quick activism! Here is an action plan they sent out and are following up on (if you would look at their home page bulletin board )

http://www.libertyrestorationproject.org/2009/03/15/action-p...
and here is a "phone in" template scroll to read
http://www.libertyrestorationproject.org/2009/03/16/call-mis...

Now also Chuck Baldwin, Restore the Republic, CFL and numerous other Liberty groups have released statements which you can use all or part of to send out or for phone calling to spread this story!

Jeez, I thought that it was

Jeez, I thought that it was just a false bit of information released to get us up in arms so that somebody did something stupid, but this is my third time seeing that report, and on C4L to boot! This is getting ridiculous.

It will be ignored...

and when it is, they will merely prove Patrick Henry right once again, 234 years later.

"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must..."

There is no other way to take this pamphlet issued in Missouri OTHER than an attempt at profiling. Their is no other use for the information than to view with suspicion anyone who fits any category in that document. To claim it merely is an aggregation of trends is a lie. Distributing such 'trends' can ONLY have the intent of wanting the police forces to 'be on the lookout' and to lay the foundation for 'reasonable suspicion' for detaining and questioning law abiding citizens. The damage is done. It will take more than a simple retraction and public apology. It will take an ACTIVE effort and campaign of PROPER instruction in Constitutional Law and American History so that officers understand their role and place in the government and how they are and are NOT to treat citizens. And that will never happen. Not in our lifetimes. Not with these clowns at the helm. Every public official, under oath, who distributes this pamphlet, defends it, and does not stand firm against it and attempt to bring the other perps to justice, is likewise in violation of their own oath of office, and a hair's breath away from treason.

Don't expect a miracle. But I understand if some people must try anyway.

best bet is probably

best bet is probably building your own community, don't expect a country which laughs at the constitution to start taking its oaths seriously. panarchy.org has some refreshing ideas on a way that we could fight this peacefully and practically. At least when combined with Ghandi and Thoreau's non-violent non-cooperation.

The news story

is getting legs. Amcon mag now has a story on it.

http://www.amconmag.com/blog/2009/03/17/are-ron-paul-support...

Getting 10 or 20k signatures on this petition, will become the 2nd part of the news story....

First, MO declares them terrorists, now there are 20,000 of them stepping up and wanting to know why..... 20,000 terrorists? What is Homeland Security doing?

It's a media war people, a MEDIA war,

Lets get Glenn Beck and Savage in on this. Anyone email them?

IT IS NOT A WASTED VOTE!

IT IS NOT A WASTED VOTE!

Bob Schultz of We the People Congress has explained this ... the only problem with our First Amendment Right to Petition for Redress of Grievances is ... we don't exercise it. Is this not the purpose of WTP and C4L ... providing us with the tools to exercise our rights? ... if we don't use them we don't have them.

Bob Schulz has been petititoning the government for over a

decade, all to no avail. That is why he is taking it to the next level which is the Continental Congress 2009. He has seen what doesn't work and now is seeking answers of how to overcome this gridlock. This is an ingenious plan to get 3 delegates/state to debate the issues and post daily updates on websites that their state citizens can blog with. It will represent a national freedom think tank for the 2-3 week period and hopefully morph into a permanent freedom think tank. Couple this with a Liberty Anti Defamation League headed by Judge Andrew Napolitano and state constitutional militias and you have brains, teeth, and arms in your court while the ball is in theirs.

I believe the problem for WTP was they were not able to get enough petition names in their signature drives to attain critical mass and of course money to fund the process. It's amazing Bob has been able to achieve what he has on a shoe-string budget.

Signed it

Folks, don't be hatin' on this idea yet. What else is C4L suppose
to do on this? There will be multiple responses to this and many
of us will have creative ideas. Hoping that Judge Napolitano will
speak of this today. No matter what---good will come of this...
"they" will be exposed.

Of course, I signed it too, BUT, I still am not convinced it

will have any effect...what else can we do? I am more aggravated right now about The Messiah's new idea to require 3rd party health insurance (paid for by the vets themselves) for our vets. To save the Treasury the money. Oh yeah, right. And who funds the Treasury? Oh yeah, that would be US!!!!! Stupid m*&^%$#*@#$%!!! OMG if the vets just ALL...took the day off in protest. Would I love to see the vets and actives LOUDLY voice their displeasure over that.

You're doing exactly what

You're doing exactly what they want you to do. They know what they are doing is going to make you upset. But then you have three options
1. Do nothing
2. Do some, but rely on others to get the job done.
or the option that we ALL need to be working on.
3. Do everything we possibly can in a peaceful way by not just relying but doing something yourself. That's the only this revolution is going to happen quickly. Relying on others is just a major speed bump in the process. But I believe as many others do that we are gaining ground big time and our time is coming. But we can't stop now and simply just complain.

"One man with courage is a majority." ~ Andrew Jackson

C4L will get just as far with this as We the People has with

their seven technically and professionally written redress petitions hand carried to all members of congress and top executive branch members. What we need to do is 1. learn from our past mistakes. 2. don't repeat past mistakes. 3. try a different approach. Here is a suggestion: Look for an organization that is very successful in what they do and follow their example. I am talking about the ADL. They don't take any crap and they use the court system to full advantage. Blacks have had made giant strides by following their example. Until the freedom movement develops their own ADL (FADL or LADL?), respect will be little more than lip service.

Oh I couldn't agree more with you, someguy!

The ADL has gotten the drill down. They have an army of lawyers and they SPEND the opposition down, and WEAR them down, and IMMEDIATELY go for the throat. While I, many times, just shake my head at the isssues they choose to pursue, they are EFFECTIVE. Which we, so far, have not been with our petitions, e-mails, faxes, and phone calls. I have made thousands of each and I am losing all hope of change with this method. It just does not work, and I don't know what would except that the ADL seems to "get 'er done." I like the Freedom Anti-Defamation League!
