Governor LePage Meets with Maine Constitutional Coalition

Update to this story: July 23, 2014 -  Maine Politicians, Media Running Campaign to Demonize Maine Constitution

After nearly a year of Governor Paul LePage being kept away from the Maine Constitutional Coalition, allegedly by the Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) at the Maine Heritage Policy Center, he was finally able to meet with Coalition members.

“After we got into the office, I was so relieved. He was cordial, he was open, frank and expressed frustration that we had so much trouble getting to him and he had so much trouble responding to us,” said Jack McCarthy, co-host of the Aroostook Watchmen radio program on AM780 in Monticello, Maine."This was not an inquisition into our governor,” said McCarthy. “It was not, 'we're going to hold you accountable and this is what you did wrong.' That was not the purpose of this Remonstrance. The purpose of this Remonstrance was to delineate the abuses of the Constitution and demand a resolution.”

McCarthy attended the meeting with several other Constitutional scholars to deliver a Remonstrance to the governor as allowed in the Maine Constitution. The governor met with the group at his office for nearly 100 minutes.

“I can't wait to hear the Bolsheviks in Bangor screaming why he would even have a meeting with radical centrists like us,” said Steve Martin, co-host of Aroostook Watchmen with McCarthy.

“We produced this Remonstrance and submitted it in writing to the proper channels,” said McCarthy. “This is a constitutional process whereby the people, according to Maine Constitution, have the right at all times to peaceably assemble and address their legislature. We did this through the Remonstrance process.”

Governor LePage was asked during the meeting if this Remonstrance was the legal way to bring these points up. “His answer was, 'Yes, this is the legal way to do this.' So, that was encouraging,” said McCarthy.

The Coalition received a signed receipt of the Remonstrance from the Governor's office, the President of the Senate's office and the Speaker of the House's office. “We know that they got these hard copies of this Remonstrance.” The Remonstrance was delivered on January 14 and each office had 10 business days to respond to the grievance. “They didn't respond. They ignored it. We heard nothing. So a press conference was set up in the Hall of Flags. Before the press conference we gave them a last chance to respond before we went public. So we went to the governor's office and handed another copy to the secretary and said ‘we're going to do a press conference at 11:00, be warned.’ The governor said he never saw it.”

“The house and Senate have not responded, and placed a lawyer between us and them. Which I think is treason because a lawyer is a foreign citizen according to the [original] 13th Amendment and the BAR is associated with the Communist Party through the Lawyers Guild as reported to Congress through special hearings in the 50's,” said Coalition member, Gary Smart. “This should make for a treasonous act where our Legislature only wants to deal with the Remonstrance through a lawyer who is a foreign citizen. Sounds like a misprision of Treason to me.”

Mr. Smart explains the Remonstrance has more authority than any legislation or court authority because it has the authority of Article 1 Section 2 Citizens authority to ordain or abolish the government and reset to a new administration. “Just remember that ‘We the People of Maine,” by the grace of God, established this free and independent state styled as the State of Maine and ordained the constitution of the same.”

More information can be obtained from an MP3 audio file of the full radio  interview with McCarthy. The interview with McCarthy begins at approximately 1 hour into the audio of the program.

McCarthy and Martin host the Aroostook Watchmen 8-9A.M. Monday thru Saturday on AM 780 in Monticello, Maine.
