Response from and to NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall (re: Shadow Party’s alleged agenda to take down America)!

As promised, I wanted to take the liberty of sharing my following eighth letter that I forwarded to our NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall today in response to his recent letter regarding the “Shadow Party’s alleged agenda to take down America” and respectfully demanding the “Return of Government to Our Constitutional Principles”:

Letter To Senator Udall:

“February 7, 2015

The Honorable Tom Udall

United States Senate

110 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, DC 20510-3101

Dear Senator Udall:

On or about January 30, 2015, I sent your office my seventh letter respectfully demanding the “Return of Government to Our Constitutional Principles”, along with sharing some extremely disturbing information with you, which I respectfully requested your take and/or feedback on.  What follows are pertinent excerpts from said letter:

"Dear Senator Udall:

On or about August 12, 2014, I sent your office my sixth letter respectfully demanding the “Return of Government to Our Constitutional Principles” and to-date I have not received a response from your office regarding said request.

On or about January 30, 2015, I received the following letter from your office:

“Dear Jake --

The Koch network spent $100 million on the 2014 elections.

But that’s nothing compared to what’s to come. According to media reports, the planned price tag for Koch operations in the 2016 elections is going to be $889 million.

We know the kind of candidates the Koch network supports—obstructionists bent on pushing an ideological agenda rather than working for the middle class. If we’re going to continue our work to stop outside interests from overtaking our democracy, we can’t slow down.

Our grassroots network needs to remain strong as ever—and we can start by reaching our $5,OOO January goal by midnight tomorrow. If you can, contribute $5 to get us there.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Express Donate: $5

Express Donate: $10

Express Donate: $25

Or donate another amount.

The Koch brothers are still in campaign mode. And they’ll spend whatever it takes to push their radical agenda through Congress.

Our network is the front line in the fight against the Kochs and their special interest allies. I need your help to make sure we have the resources to keep our grassroots defense strong.

Click here to give $5 or whatever you can today.

Thank you for your support.

Tom “

In your letter above you ask for my donation and make it a point to mention that the Koch brothers will spend whatever it takes to push their “radical” agenda through Congress that supposedly includes the ultimate “overtaking of our democracy”, but fail to mention the Democratic Party’s true agenda(s), along with who finances said agenda(s), which were partially revealed in the following recent article and/or blog that I am taking the liberty of sharing with you in its entirety: 

January 30, 2015:

In the aftermath of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday and the televised rebuttal by newly elected GOP Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa, who is the first woman combat veteran to serve in the U.S. Senate and was strongly backed by the Democrats’ bogeymen the Koch brothers, the news media appeared more interested in the multi-billionaire David and Charles Koch and their political activities supporting Republican politicians and candidates. Yet, the same news organizations turned a blind eye to left-wing billionaire icon George Soros’ financing of anti-police protests and demonstrations through a number of leftist groups.

Although the Koch brothers support many Republican candidates, they are part of the Libertarian wing of the party. They oppose big government and bureaucracies, oppose foreign entanglements and believe in a real free-market not the one that’s morphed into a government controlled hodgepodge of regulations. Soros, on the other hand, wants government to control everything and uses socialism to manipulate the distribution of wealth.

For example, according to news outlets, four of the Republican presidential hopefuls — Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Rand Paul and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker—are being introduced by the Koch brothers at a dinner party with rich Republicans organized by the Koch brothers. Yet these same news people ignored Soros’ bankrolling the Ferguson, Missouri, protest movement. According to reports, he provided well over $30 million to established groups responsible for the protests and demonstrations in Ferguson and in other locations throughout the nation, claims the Washington Times and other news sources.

During the Ferguson protests—which had clearly deteriorated into riots and looting of local businesses—activists from groups such as Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER), the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), Make the Road New York, and the Center for Community Change in Washington, benefited from Soros’ contributions beginning in August. The groups went on to organize gatherings and protests there until late December while they expanded their anti-police activities in New York City.

In addition, Soros’ groups such as Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, the Organization for Black Struggle, and an immigration group called Dream Defenders were involved in establishing yet another offshoot, the Hands Up Coalition, an organization that’s name is a proven fallacy: the black youth, Michael Brown, did not get shot by the white police officer, Darren Weeks, while raising his hands and surrendering.

The Hands Up Coalition allegedly organized blacks and white youths to hold local events in their own cities, towns and college campuses to make the Ferguson shooting victim Michael Brown a martyr nationwide. The Hands Up Coalition and its affiliates are now calling 2015 a “Year of Resistance.” The group and its affiliates are expecting more of the 84-year-old Soros fortune believed to be upwards of $26 billion.

The is also a connection between George Soros and President Barack Obama through the Soros-funded group which helped in managing and funding the Ferguson demonstrations. Soros money is key in financing the grass-roots organization known as the Gamaliel Foundation. A young Barack Obama started his community-organizing career at Gamaliel in Chicago, Illinois.

Besides Soros and Obama, clergy representatives from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference (SDPC), where the controversial “Obama spiritual leader” Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a trustee, also participated in the protests. Wright was Obama’s long-time pastor in Chicago before publicity about his harsh rhetoric, including use of the phrase “God damn America,” caused Obama to distance himself from Wright.

“We want to send a bill to the president that defunds his amnesty program, but also very importantly funds the Department of Homeland Security — the Coast Guard, TSA, the Border Patrol, the ICE teams [Immigration and Customs Enforcement], the Secret Service,” said Hal Rogers, R-Kentucky, the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, in a statement. “It’s a very dangerous time. I would wonder whether or not the president would have real deep misgivings about not signing a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security.”

“We want to send a bill to the president that defunds his amnesty program, but also very importantly funds the Department of Homeland Security — the Coast Guard, TSA, the Border Patrol, the ICE teams [Immigration and Customs Enforcement], the Secret Service,” said Hal Rogers, R-Kentucky, the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, in a statement. “It’s a very dangerous time. I would wonder whether or not the president would have real deep misgivings about not signing a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security.”

Meanshile, Pelosi and the far-left wing of the Democratic Party are threatening Americans saying that the “immigration amendments will strangle the debate and put the nation’s security at risk.” But numerous law enforcement officials claim that the Democrats couldn’t care less about security. For example, a border agent leaked documents to a conservative web site, that revealed the Department of Homeland Security has decided that the majority of illegal aliens crossing U.S. borders cannot be detained or deported without approval from top officials in Washington. “The documents do not specifically order agents to let illegal immigrants pass freely into the United States, the source said. But the rules “clearly” say “don’t waste your time because the alien will not be put into detention, sent back or deported,”Newsmax reported.

End of letter excerpts.

On or about February 6, 2015, I received the following response to my above letter from your office:

“February 6, 2015

Dear Mr. Martinez,

Thank you for contacting me regarding campaign finance reform. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.

The 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC placed a new emphasis on the need for Congress to act. Unfortunately, Citizens United was a victory for powerful groups at the expense of the average American.  It found that corporations and other special interests deserve the same free speech protections as individual Americans, enabling them to spend freely from their treasuries on campaign advertising.  It also gave rise to so-called “Super PACs”, which can raise and spend unlimited funds to campaign for or against candidates.

While the Citizens United decision sparked a renewed focus on the need for campaign finance reform, the court started down the path towards this broken system many years ago.  In 1976, when the court held in Buckley v. Valeo that restricting independent campaign expenditures violates the First Amendment right to free speech, it established the flawed precedent that money and speech are the same thing.  Since then, our nation’s policymakers are all too often elected based on their ability to raise money or the size of their personal fortunes, rather than the quality of their ideas, dedication to public service, and support among a broad array of citizens.

Unfortunately, the Supreme Court has continued to expand the influence of money in our election system.  On April 2, 2014, the court ruled in McCutcheon v. FEC that limits on the overall amount an individual can contribute to candidates and party committees in an election cycle were unconstitutional. Now, individuals can give the maximum contribution amount to as many candidates and party committees as they choose, allowing one person to contribute several million dollars directly to one party during an election cycle. This misguided decision makes it legal for a few wealthy individuals to flood campaigns with cash, drowning out the voices of regular voters. It also returns our campaign finance system to Watergate-era rules - the same rules that fostered corruption, outraged voters, and prompted campaign finance regulations in the first place.

These decisions, among others, demonstrate the court’s willingness to rule broadly and ignore longstanding precedent in order to declare our campaign finance laws unconstitutional.  Because of this, I believe that the only way to fix the problem is to first amend the Constitution to grant Congress clear authority to regulate the campaign finance system.

Accordingly, on June 18, 2013, I introduced Senate Joint Resolution (S. J. Res.) 19 along with several of my colleagues. This proposed constitutional amendment would authorize Congress to regulate the raising and spending of money for federal political campaigns, including so-called “Super PAC” independent expenditures, and allow states to regulate such spending at their level.  It would not dictate any specific policies or regulations. Instead, it would allow Congress to respond to the public and pass campaign finance reform legislation that withstands constitutional challenges.

On September 8, 2014, my amendment was brought before the full Senate for consideration. This marked the first time in over a decade that the Senate considered a campaign finance related Constitutional Amendment. Unfortunately, although S. J. Res. 19 received 55 votes in support, 60 votes were required to overcome a filibuster by Senate Republicans. I was encouraged that a majority of the Senate voted in favor of the proposed amendment. The last time a similar amendment was considered, it only received 40 votes. The increasing number of votes in support shows strong momentum behinde reforming our broken campaign finance system.

If legislation is not passed by the end of a Congress, it must be reintroduced in the next Congress. On January 21, 2015, I reintroduced my amendment as S. J. Res. 5. Upon introduction, S. J. Res. 5 was referred to the Judiciary Committee, where no further action has yet occurred.

Elections should be about who has the best ideas to move our country forward, not who has the biggest checkbook, and I will continue to fight for reforms to help ensure that the American people, not special interest money, control elections.

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with me.  Please feel free to contact me with your concerns regarding any federal issue by visiting my website at  For more information, you may also visit my Facebook page at and receive up to the minute updates through my Twitter page at

Very truly yours,

Tom Udall

United States Senator” 

Senator Udall, although I do appreciate your speedy response to my letter, I found the contents of your letter to be a bit disheartening because, it did little or nothing to address my concerns, which I believe were clearly laid out in my letter of January 30, 2015.  

For your information, your response, although extremely disturbing, did not come as a surprise to me and, as a matter of fact, it confirmed what I now believe to be reality in America today, which is that we, as American citizens, no longer have representation because our elected representatives are no longer in charge and are mere figure heads at best and we will never get any real answers and/or solutions until we can all see and admit the truth. What follows are two articles and/or blogs that I believe relate to and/or further support my above statement:

My Top 10 Reasons the USA is NO LONGER under Constitutional Law!-Posted on The Gaspee Gazette-On March 13, 2012: 

Senator Udall I am a true believer in the American system and, although I am a registered Democrat, I have a problem with what seems to be both the Democrat and Republican Party’s current platforms because I find them to be contrary to the American system and seem to be more in line with the “Communist Manifesto.”  What follows is an American version of the Communist Manifesto that was allegedly entered into the Congressional Record in 1963 and listed 45 goals, which I believe supports my statement:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

When Injustice Becomes Law, Resistance Becomes Duty!  It should be clear by now that most of the leadership in both parties are sold out and no longer support our Constitutional Republic as originally organized and intended.  We have in Fact... been 'Fundamentally Transformed' by legislative act, Judicial fiat, Presidential Executive order and... (here is a big one) regulatory abuse by unelected bureaucrats. Constitutional rule and law has been completely thwarted. It is time for organized and sustain peaceful resistance... in the form of assemblies, labor and tax strikes and PETITIONS demanding specific legislative an Constitutional Amendments... be passed while the people are assembled and on strike.

1.  Term Limits and Recall Amendment... Recall all sitting elected and appointed government officials subject to new elections.  Limit all elected and appointed offices to one (1) term, Six (6) years with 1/3rd standing for election and appointment every 2yrs.  Establish a date for new elections and the recycling of sitting members of the government..

2.  A Balanced budget Amendment... require the Federal Government to balance their expenditures to meet revenues within 5yrs.  Reduce the size and scope of government too its Constitutional limits as defined in Article 1, Sections 8 and 9.  Permit deficit spending only in the times of DECLARED WAR and National Emergencies... the latter requiring 3/4ths of Congress to approve.

3. Define US Citizenship and Natural Born in an Amendment and restrict all rights and privileges under the Constitution to Citizens and resident aliens here legally.  Eliminate anchor babies by denying US Citizenship to those here on a temporary visa or here illegally. Require individuals to prove US Citizenship to vote or receive any privileges or monetary benefit(s) from the US Government.  Use a combination of Amendments and legislative Acts as necessary to accomplish these goals.

The People must organize on a national basis ...  establish recognized national leaders capable of negotiating a return to Constitutional rule with the government.  The People must be willing to mobilize and strike... too assemble in mass and remain peacefully assembled and on strike until the government passes and ratifies all Amendments and any legislation proposed by Petition.  The People must be wiling to fund and support these peaceful activities as the conventional constitutional methods for reform (elections and individual petition) are not working.

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.


Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
