State Rep. Warren Kampf: "Champion of the Left"

Press Release

State Representative Warren Kampf

A town hall hosted by Republican State Representative Warren Kampf was held on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at Phoenixville Area High School in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.


There were roughly 50 of his constituents in attendance. To enter the auditorium where it was being held, everyone had to sign in with their name, address, phone number, and email address. Once I got past "security" and sat down, Kampf was speaking about fiscal issues. One of his staff members Colleen Eckman, who is also a Lower Providence Township Supervisor, did a superb job by organizing the town hall Q&A segment by giving everyone a number card who wanted to ask Rep. Kampf a question. My number was number 15. 

A question was asked from Jane Taylor Toal, who is associated with Citizens for Liberty, if  the State Rep. supports universal background checks, and he replied that there should be background checks for private sales involving long guns. After doing some research, I found legislation that he co-sponsored called House Bill 1010 that requires background checks for all firearms.

Article 1, Section 21 of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania specifically states that "The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned."  Warren Kampf is surely questioning the very same Constitution that he took an oath to uphold. As a supporter of the right to keep and bear arms, I was really disappointed to hear his response.


Many other questions were asked by his constituents. I'll list those issues by name and then a brief description of how State Rep. Warren Kampf answered them. 

Pension Reform:  Mr. Kampf said that "pension costs are one of the largest drivers on property tax increases". He also stated that he wants pension reform. 

Hemp legalization:  Kampf replied that "there was a legitimate chance", but he would like to see how medical marijuana goes first in other states.

 Marcellus Shale:  Warren Kampf said that he would like to put a severance tax on the company.


Finally, he was up to number 14. I was excited because I was the next person to ask a question, but he must have forgotten that 15 comes after 14 and skipped right over me and went to number 16, but I made sure to let him know that I was next. I asked him what was his position on legalized gay marriage in Pennsylvania. He brushed off the subject and claimed it to be a federal issue, which is blatantly not true because each state defines it own marriage laws, not the federal government. But he did say that he supports anti-discrimination of Gays in the workplace. I also asked him what his personal opinion was on gay marriage, but he refused to answer.

ObamaCare:  A question was asked, "how do we stop it in Pennsylvania?"  Rep. Kampf said that there was nothing that we can do to stop it, because "it is a federal issue."  That was also incorrect, because through my research, I have found that not to be true at all. If you log on to http://tracking.tenthamendmentcenter.com/issues/obamacare, it shows a map of a total of 12 states that so far have legislation which rejects this unconstitutional federal law, including Georgia which has recently signed in to law legislation that bans the state from participating in significant portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The State Representative also said that he is fine with Medicaid expansion.  He claims to be a fiscal conservative, but what he really sounds like is a champion of the left.




Eminent Domain:  One concerned resident brought up the eminent domain crisis that happened with the Campbell family that owned Meadow Brook Golf Club. The Phoenixville Area School Board voted to steal this family's property for their own political agenda. The family has been vigorously battling this in court. Rep. Kampf said that fundamentally taking property is a very serious matter. But he defended the legality of eminent domain, and said it should be used as a last resort. The crowd wasn't too happy with his response.

Illegal Immigration:  Several concerned citizens brought this issue up with regards to the recent illegal immigration issue. He was asked what can he do about it, and his response was "we can do nothing but watch".  Again, Kampf's response was incorrect. Because the governor and each county sheriff can legally do something about this. This is not just a federal issue.


With only three months until the general election, State Representative Warren Kampf  has a lot of angry voters to please if he wishes to keep his seat. Although I do give him kudos for not voting for the Transportation "Gas Tax" Bill, I do however hope that he will change his mind on several issues by shrinking the size of government, and standing by "We the People".

Woman Appears to Faint During Obamacare Speech

It seemed too good to be true. As the president was rounding off a speech on how Obamacare is “really good” and people should just sign up using the telephone and snail mail, a pregnant woman directly behind him began to sway and faint.

Super Obama to the rescue!


First of all, who in their right mind asked a pregnant woman to stand up in front of hundreds of photographers for a significant amount of time?

Secondly, take a closer look at the video. After turning to the woman, Obama actually turns back toward the microphone, raises his voice and says “I’ve got you.” He then turns back to her, turns back to the mic and again says “You’re ok.”

Who is he addressing? The woman who is behind him or the world’s press in front of him?

But, this is not the first time this has happened… or the second time… or the third time… or the fourth time… It happens ALL THE TIME. He pretty much has a prepared speech that he repeats.

The Delphi Technique: WHAT IT IS AND WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

 

ARE YOU BEING DELPHI'ED?  DO YOU FEEL MANIPULATED IN GROUP MEETINGS?

 

The Delphi Technique:  WHAT IT IS AND WHY YOU SHOULD CARE 

"The goal of the Delphi technique is to lead a targeted group of people to a predetermined outcome, while giving the illusion of taking public input and under the pretext of being accountable to the public."

The Rand Corporation in the early 1960s developed the Delphi technique for the purpose of maneuvering segments of the public into accepting predetermined government policies. In the 1970s and '80s, it was used to convince land owners of the merits of accepting general plan maps. 

It now is being employed by the City of Santa Rosa and local groups working with the City in order to engineer "citizen consent."
 
For the Delphi to work, it is critical that the targeted group (you) be kept away from knowledgeable people who could lead them away from the Delphier's predetermined outcome.


One variation on the Delphi technique is to use a series of meetings. They may call them 'visioning meetings.' The attendees are often given a number or a colored card when they enter the room, to determine at which table they are to sit. The purpose of this is to break up the groups of potentially knowledgeable people who arrive together so that they will be sitting with strangers and therefore be subdued.

Typically, there is a facilitator at each table , someone who will know which way to help "steer" the group. Usually the people at each table are instructed to answer among themselves some of the questions and arrive at a table consensus. Someone is chosen to speak for the table, most of the time it is the person who has been secretly pre-briefed about the desired Delphi outcome. The table spokesperson is the only one allowed to address the podium and the others have little opportunity to address the podium or the crowd directly.

Anyone knowledgeable enough, or brave enough, to speak out in opposition will not be welcomed. Often they are told from the podium, "We don't have time to discuss that now," or "We discussed that on another date," or “We can discuss that after the meeting.” They will attempt to quiet, isolate, and discredit dissenters. After attending the Delphi meeting, participants may feel uneasy that they are in disagreement with the apparent majority. The Delphi technique is often successful in bluffing people into submission. Don't let them succeed. Call their bluff. 

The Delphi technique often uses a series of surveys to bring about "consensus." The surveys are promoted as information gathering regarding the wishes of the targeted public, but in reality they are designed to manipulate the desired outcome. The survey will sometimes use a grading like, "agree all of the time," "agree most of the time," "agree some of the time," "agree not much," "agree never." Or, the survey grading will ask the respondents to use ratings like "most important," "moderately important," "least important."

The questions are typically "loaded" questions.  These questions are designed to restrict the issue to the one that the City (or whomever is running the meeting) has planned to approve prior to ever meeting with the public, and call it "consensus."

DHS Says They Have An Ammo Shortage



Have you heard about this ridiculous news?

DHS (Department of Homeland Security) tells Border Patrol that they have an ammo shortage...after they have purchased more than 1.6 BILLION rounds hollow-point ammunition for "target practice". 

There's something serious brewing that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano isn’t telling us. At the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month.  Therefore 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years in America.

Here's an email that townhall.com reported that was sent to Border Patrol agents stationed in the El Centro border sector by a supervisor.

Enforcement Personnel,
Due to budget concerns and ammunition availability, we will not be getting issued any proficiency ammunition for next quarter.  In addition to these reductions, we are also being limited to qualification ammo only.   What this means to you is that you will not receive the normal 150 rounds for practice and we will not have any extra ammunition for a combat course following normal qualifications.

If you have the ammunition available and would like extra practice during your qualification day, the firearms instructors will have a training course available for Indio Station Personnel, keeping in mind basic marksmanship skills as well as tactical training with a limited amount of ammunition.  You are not required to bring your own ammunition.

If you do not have extra ammo to bring, you will be given extra time to clean and maintain your issued handgun as well as station long arms.

If you have any questions about this quarters quals please feel free to send me your concerns.
Thanks.

... Its time for a national conversation.


Alaska Governor Signs Bill Nullifying NDAA, Federal Gun Laws & REAL ID

alaska sean parnell signs HB 69

Following the hard work of Alaskans, the legislature, and Americans around the country, and with one swift signature from Alaskan Governor Sean Parnell, HB 69 has:

1. Made Alaska the second state to successfully complete the nullification of the national defense authorization act’s sections 1021 and 1022

2. Declared tyrannical federal gun laws infringing upon the 2nd amendment enumerated Rights unenforceable and unconstitutional, including barring any state resources or participation

3. Stopped and forbidden any participation or implementation of the REAL ID Act / National ID program
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph -Thomas Paine

The signed legislation, Alaska HB 69, which is now officially law, is summarized:

“Prohibiting state and municipal agencies from using assets to implement or aid in the implementation of the requirements of certain federal statutes, regulations, rules, and orders that are applied to infringe on a person’s right to bear arms or right to due process or that  implement or aid in the implementation of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005; exempting certain firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition in this state from federal regulation; declaring certain federal statutes, regulations, rules, and orders unconstitutional under the Constitution of the United States and unenforceable in this state; requiring the attorney general to file any legal action to prevent implementation of a federal statute, regulation, rule, or order that violates the rights of a resident of the state; and providing for an effective date.”

The new Alaskan law forbids the use of any state resources or employees to enforce NDAA’s sections 1021 and 1022, which Unconstitutionally authorized the executive power to arrest and imprison Americans indefinitely and without due process, and authorized the executive branch to utilize the military to arrest Americans in violation of the Section 1, Article 9, enumerated Right to a writ of Habeas Corpous, among at-least 5 enumerated Rights within the Bill of Rights. The text you should surely note is that NDAA section 1022 does not say Americans must be arrested by the military, but instead says that they are not required to be arrested by the military.

Is Philadelphia Mayor Nutter Nuts?



Is Philadelphia Mayor Nutter Nuts? I'd say so!  Did you know that he is one of 6 ICLEI (aka Agenda 21) Board Members in the U.S.?  Have you ever heard of Agenda 21?  If not, don’t feel bad, because most Americans haven’t.  It is essentially a blueprint for a “sustainable world” that was introduced at the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992 and approved by George H. Bush.  Since then, it has been adopted by more than 200 countries and it has been modified and updated at other UN environmental summits.


Rosa Koire from DemocratsAgainstUNagenda21.com says "UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world.  INVENTORY AND CONTROL."
Rosa Koire


http://www.icleiusa.org/about-iclei/board-of-directors/mayor-michael-a.-nutter
The philosophy behind Agenda 21 is that they want you to believe that our environmental problems are the number one problem that we are facing. Whether that's true or not is irrelevant, because they want to indoctrinate you to believe that as a way to control you.  Therefore, according to Agenda 21 all human activity needs to be tightly monitored, regulated and highly controlled for the greater good.  They believe that the Government knows whats best for you, your family, and your schools, and they can care less what you think. The elite also believe that you cannot be trusted to do the “right thing” with your own property, and they believe that they have the power and the right to take away your rights because individual liberties and freedoms must be sacrificed "for the good of the planet".  If you are thinking that this sounds like it is exactly the opposite of what our founding fathers intended when they established this nation, you would be on the right track.

Those that promote the philosophy underlying Agenda 21 believe that all human activity must be “managed” and that letting people make their own decisions is “destructive” and “dangerous”.  Sadly, the principles behind Agenda 21 are being rammed down the throats of local communities all over America, and most of the people living in those communities don’t even realize it.

So how is this being done?  Well, after Agenda 21 was adopted, an international organization known as the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives” (ICLEI) was established to help implement the goals of Agenda 21 in local communities.  One thing that they learned very quickly was that the “Agenda 21″ label was a red flag for a lot of people.  It tended to create quite a bit of opposition on the local level.

Here is a short eye-opening YouTube video of Agenda 21:
