A transcript of the accidentally-captured recording of the Trump-Putin secret meeting was just published, thanks to unnamed, anonymous sources at the Washington (aka "Beezos") Post.
BOTTOM LINE: If you have knowledge of specific departments, agencies or offices in the U.S. Government that you think need to be eliminated or closed, click into this Website and submit your ideas.
Technical note: To choose more than one option in a list, you will have to hold a function key (on my Mac it is the "command" key) as click offices. I recommend you test it on the first few options so you don't waste your time.
DETAILS: The Trump Administration is soliciting input from citizens about what parts of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government we want it to close or restructure. Is it just a gimmick? We don't know*, but assume it's legitimate. At the very least, it will provide the President with a survey of public opinion.
Scrolling through the lists may stagger you. With the breadth and depth of the federal (too often national) government it is no mystery why every aspect of our lives is (or is subject to) manipulation by unelected, national bureaucrats. The vastness of the structure is literally beyond the capacity of any one person to comprehend.
What are your targets? The Department of Education (aptly abbreviated "ED")? The National Labor Relations Board? The JFK Center for the Performing Arts (yes, it's there!)? The EPA? Make your comments!
From your personal experience, do you have personal insight you can share with the White House? Then comment!

The dissolution of the United States of America is a frightening thing to contemplate.
The only alternatives are a dissolution into multiple countries with different levels of freedom, or Totalitarian one party California-on-a-national-level tyranny.
Is this what we're destined for? Are other alternatives not realistic? Read this short blog and tell us what you think.
Richard Burr: Come on, we're not going to get health care done this year
If the Republican Party had pursued its platform, the Tea Party Movement would never have materialized. If Richard Burr and the other two-faced Republican Sacajaweas* had not been bald-faced lying to us, the party that controls the House, Senate and White House would have already repealed Obamacare... but most of them ARE rank liars. Meadows, Budd, Cruz, Lee and a few others—by being politicians of integrity—are exceptions to the GOP rule.
It is no small truth that Congresspeople face enormous pressures and must make compromises on very complicated, nuanced matters. To sit in Moore County and demand they behave as we would (with our limited information) would be naive and unfair. However, what is 100% reasonable and unquestionable is the expectation these people won't LIE to us. Most do. Burr did and this is just one example.
"What about the Democratic Party?" you ask. Well, it is hopelessly lost to an underlying and increasingly open Marxist agenda, and conservatives don't vote for Dems except when punishing corrupt Repubs. More salient, our Congresspeople aren't Dems, are they? Which is worse? An enemy standing at your door and threatening to blow up your house, or a "ally" who is in the back room releasing termites? It's a tough call, but this blog and the article that sparked it are about Richard Burr, Republican, NC.

This Wall Street Journal article recommends that Mitch McConnell, the despicable Senate Majority Leader, dispense with the Senate "Filibuster Law" in order to save the republic: The Filibuster Is Not a Suicide Pact
In his speech in Riyadh today, President Trump didn't shy away from using terms like "Islamic terrorism," or from including Hamas in a list of "terrorist groups." He forcefully called on the leaders of the many Muslim nations assembled (including Asian nations) to "DRIVE OUT!" terrorists from their countries.
Rather than express anger at his direct approach, the assembled leaders and dictators then gave speech after speech (still ongoing as of this writing), in full support of all he said. In the opening greeting of their speeches, any addressed the U.S. President before the Saudi king. He is clearly the figure at this summit.
Also of note was the focus on Iran. The Saudi King opened the session. Although it was a like listening to Obama (lots of BS), he did include a harsh condemnation of the Iranian government in his comment. President Trump did the same.
So the American swerve into Obama kowtowing subservience is definitely over. Now let's see what develops.
The Republicans control everything and yet they control nothing; and yet they DO nothing.
What: Demand that Burr, Tillis and Hudson (or your rep if you're not in the 8th NC District)* immediately become visibly active in the fight against the daily, relentless, unfounded attempts to neutralize the Trump Administration* via death by 1000 cuts.
Why: The Democrats (incl. the media) and the Establishment Republicans are attempting to destroy the President and his "drain the Swamp" agenda. You decide whether your Congressional politicians are part of the GOP Establishment, but the 8th District's (Burr, Tillis, Hudson) are certainly not helping the President with the good and vital parts of his agenda such as slaying Obamacare and funding the wall.**
Why is it important: The Establishment (both parties) is unified in its mission to protect its power (i.e., the "DC Swamp"). Some are shouting in our faces while others work more passively. However, like a stack of wood, the mutual support network will collapse if it looses some blocks. We can't impact the Democrats, but we have three squishy Republicans who do depend on our votes. Force just a few of these swamp rats to pull out of the "Get Trump" network and the strain on the remaining blocks will collapse the effort.
How: Convince your elected Establishmentarians (Burr, Tillis and Hudson) that whether or not the Swamp drowns the President, you will make them pay for being part of if. Call 2-3 times each week to demand to know what your Senators and Representatives are doing to actively fight back against the smear-and-obfuscation campaign under way against the President. They are using Alinsky's Rules #8 and #11.
What to say and how to say it: Be yourself and speak your own thoughts. It's good to have a list of points that are important to you. Be candid. Don't say anything you don't mean. Don't attack the person on the phone. Address behavior, not motivation (after all, you're not psychic). Be direct and straight to your point. Passion is great but be civil; don't curse or insult. The person answering the phone doesn't make policy (even if s/he does try to argue with you). Just ask your questions (if you have any) and state the action you want the politician to take. A few examples:
Wilmington: (910) 251-1058 or (888) 848-1833
Winston-Salem: (336) 631-5125 or (800) 685-8916
Washington DC: (202) 224-3154
Raleigh: (919) 856-4630
High Point: (336) 885-0685
Washington DC: (202) 224-6342
Rockingham: (910) 997-2070
Concord: (704) 786-1612
Washington DC: (202) 225-3715

**Anyone who regularly visits the MTC Website or attends meetings knows that we are not "fanboys" of the President. As constitutionalists and conservatarians, we oppose policies such as protectionism (anti-free market) and the titan "infrastructure" spending scheme (centralized, national debt-growing spending). We do not blindly follow or advocate for any politician.
The American Revolution was the triumph of Individualism over Collectivism; freedom over the tyranny of rule by a few Masterminds who purport to know best how you should live your life. The freedom established by the American Revolution and grown over time was based in a philosophy diametrically opposite to that of the neo-communism being advance by the Left, today. Radicals like Bernie Sanders are out of the closet. Idealistic, emotional, ignorant college faculty and students are part of the useful fool toolbox. That punitive, controlling ideology is now fully in our faces and getting increasingly asinine and violent.
One of the tactics of the radical Left is to create problems where they don't exist, sell them, then "fix" them with the iron fist of government. It's an Alinsky tactic that wasn't original to him. The Maoists, Soviets, Nazis every totalitarian, murderous regime in history has used the idea of telling a lie often enough, using seemingly credible sources, until it eventually became the "truth" in the mind of the average citizen.
One big lie, pushed hard by the Great Demagogue, Barak Hussein Obama, and now rolling under it's own inertia is the idea that America is full of white racists, woman-hating men, homosexual-hating heterosexuals, etc. Fabricated "outrages" like The Great St. Olaf College Racism Hoax of 2017 are corrosive and insidious. Each is another chip out of reality and the brilliant society in which we live.
Do not let these counter-revolutionary attacks pass without reacting. Every time one of these hoaxes is exposed we should publicize it. Put it on social media. Email it (if you still do that). Tell your younger relatives about it. Don't browbeat them, just plant the seed of skepticism (healthy doubt that requires substantive evidence).
Amid all the accusations, innuendo and strong emotions, we want to get to the bottom of things and know what's really going on. We heard one thing in the Zumwalt Zone (Quis) and read something else in the Haymaker [Moore County: Saul Alinsky. Screaming Mommies. School funding. (And Quis is RIGHT.)].
Are Moore County Schools officials in need of money or are they misappropriating/mismanaging what they have?

MTC operates on a conservatarian* philosophy. It is non-partisan and equally supportive/critical of representatives of political parties who actively promote/undermine the freedom and value of the individual citizen or the security of the American people.
Generally, the "Establishment" or the "Political Class" is composed of those from whatever political party that seek, above all else, to preserve the power and monetary benefits they enjoy or aspire to. They may have philosophical leanings, especially in the early days of their political careers, but those are secondary to maintaining and advancing their personal gain. Consequently, principle and ethics are buried. The ends justify the means and these people often lie and deceive, especially to the voters. The Republican Party's promise to repeal Obamacare, or the Democratic Party's claim to be for the "little guy" or the "working man" are examples.
Enter the Robin Hayes, the former US House Rep from what is now our (8th) district, and the current chairman of the NC Republican Party. In Congress, Hayes was a "moderate" conservative. For example, he voted against the auto manufacturer's bailout but for the $800 billion "stimulus." Since leaving Congress he has been "iron-fisted" in the state's Republican Party politics, obstructing grass roots conservatives at every turn. Perhaps the starkest example is the way he ran the last state party convention (as reported by several of our members), where he declared the apparent winner (a principled, "Tea Party" conservative) to have lost the "stand-up" vote, then refused to conduct a written vote, declaring his preferred candidate the winner.
Hayes is now being challenged by Jim Womack, a man with a respected reputation for principled behavior and willingness to fall on his sword for the right thing, a la conservatives such as Ted Cruz and Mark Meadows. We urge NC Republican delegates who desire to reduce the level of hypocrisy and cronyism in your party to attend your convention and vote for Jim Womack.
