In 1492 Columbus Sailed the Oceans Blue


And so we arrive at the stark truth – there is no running or hiding from the future.

It is the task of free citizens to take a hold of the emerging new technologies into their own hands, for their own purposes: to live in society that acts towards human freedom and dignity of the soul. A world where our small children can grow up in a world without unnecessary humility or fear. A world where there is promise and hope, a promise truly justified by a real-existing society around them based upon what is true, what is beautiful, and what is good.



 

Oppressed v Oppressor

Why the divide When it does not exist.



What a sad world to have to be oppressed. Can you imagine living every minute of your day focused on the fact that you have been subjugated, segregated and objectified. Can you imagine spending the entire day knowing the Oppressor is just around the corner waiting to prevent every positive thing you want to do? Can you begin to understand how it feels? Do you know?

Can you imagine not being able to advance or make a positive change because the oppressor has made things so bad you can only wallow in the scraps of opportunity they throw your way.

Imagine this. Imagine being the oppressor. Imagine taking every waking minute you have to make sure a group of people are oppressed and kept in a place they do not want to be in. Imagine being so strong that your words and skin color prevent an entire group of people from ever being able to achieve anything.

What a sad place that would be.

So, are you oppressed? Really?

Mans oppression is limited to his ability to think. Oppression that is not physically binding, like a shackle or a bottle of gin, is not oppression of the world. It is oppression of the mind.

Your mind, your heart, the belief that sits upon your every second and acts as the fire to drive you in a direction of will is yours and yours alone. If you want, go forth and do. If you go forth with the attitude that every bad thing that happens to you is because another group of people are oppressing you then your world will conform to your belief and fuel. You can convince yourself of most anything. Your mind has more power than most will discover and explore.

Here is the real sad thing though. In order for a person to think that they are being oppressed by another group of people there has to be an oppressor. However, convincing yourself that groups of people are your oppressors so you can blame away your lack of functional ability to do for yourself is sad.

There are technical terms for this human phenomenon. It is considered Cognitive Dissonance.

Ask yourself a couple of self-honest questions with me.

First, do you really believe that hate for another based upon a mans skin color is born into a race of oppressors and they will always be that way?

Second, do you think that your entire race is an oppressor or the oppressed?

Third, do you call yourself a person of Christian faith? If you do and you honestly think that you are oppressed or an oppressor and that skin color is the determinant factor in your life’s station then you have some things to sort out for yourself in your own head.

The opposition to the Spirt of God by belief in false narrative will leave you with knowledge of God but it will lack the spirit of God. The dark cannot live in light. When the falseness of darkness competes for the same foundational stone of belief, the light, it will by nature alone cause internal conflict in the soul of a man.

It is never too late to learn something new. If you care as much about your world as you say you do then join us on a journey to unwrap the facts as they affect you without the bias of oppressed and oppressors. We are your neighbor.

It is time to know who you are standing with and alongside. Equally as important it is time to know why you do so. Before you choose to stand with anyone please ask yourself this.

What are the foundations of their belief?

Are they based on skin color?

Are they based on economic class?

Are they based on political party?

Do they have a bedrock foundation based on truth, justice and the American way?

Are you sure?

Life and the governance thereof are not meant to be a contact sport. The exercise of those decisions is serious and will affect the outcomes of your world for a long time to come.

So, when the Watchdog barks at your neighbor’s house, you better look out your window and see what the reason is. If you don’t, well, without the watchdog you better hope your sources are enough to keep you informed and your family safe from the dangers that threaten you day to day.

One last passing thought on this matter. As a successful, white, American Male in his 50’s I find myself having to answer honestly for myself the foundation and truth of my fundamental core principles and values. Not because I am male, white or in my 50’s. I, like you can do so because I am free of will, I am free in opportunity to fail or succeed. I am free to grow or just stay planted and never fruit.

Defense is a perimeter penetrated. The reason I have to take deep dives on my belief from time to time is because the perimeter of my beliefs is under attack. That tells me one of two things. Either I am under attack or my bedrock is not as stable as I thought.

So with a wise and enlightened self-honesty I can make a decision as to which of the causal actions are responsible for the incursion. Confirmation bias is always an easy blanket to keep honesty snugly and warm. Honesty though is not always pleasant. We need face the demons that we say threaten us and keep us from succeeding.

If I am to be called an oppressor then so be it. I know the truth; I walk in the light and am filled with a burning spirit inside me that wants nothing more than to have my piece of mind, opportunity and liberty.

Know this though. If I am to be used as false narrative so that your ideas you require to make your world whole, then I will rebuke your claims and your false narratives with a vehement passion in order to shine light on the darkness and increase the light of Liberty in my world. If that is what you call oppression, then you are wrong. I am not an oppressor. I am a liberator.

The 28 Principles of Liberty

Eric D. Miller

Principles of Liberty in our Founding Documents

Those who are familiar with the 28 Principles of Liberty, are acquainted with the claim that these are the principles upon which the Founders based our new government, thereby assuring us of lasting peace , prosperity, and freedom. Occasionally the question is asked, “Where can we find these principles in our founding documents?” This will help the reader make that connection.

First, however, one point needs to be made clear. There is a notion today that the Declaration of Independence is not really a part of American jurisprudence and that the principles contained therein cannot be referred to as a basis of American law. This line of thought is usually concluded by saying that if a principle cannot be found in the Constitution, such as a belief in a Creator, it is not part of American culture or law. This idea is blatantly…

God’s Protective Arm around Us

Please be sure to check in with Celia and see what she is writing about. Her perspective counts !

MIRACLES EACH DAY

“You have never failed to create and attract precisely those most beautiful lessons that have triggered for you what you most need to learn, what you most need to feel.”  (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Chapter 15, Page 179)

This quotation lets us know, in beautiful language, that we are living in a protected universe.  We are creating the lessons that we need to learn.  Our mind is one with God’s, and He creates for us the opportunities that we need to have.  We are not alone in what we experience.  Our creations could not be so precise unless we are receiving help from a greater Power than just our personal self.

Let us be reassured today that, when we listen, we will be guided.  Our lessons under these conditions will be benign.  We will not hurt.  Our suffering is and has always been needless.  Now we…

Are you certain you know?

Throughout the day we are confronted with problems, common stuff that we know how to deal with. Things like traffic, a flat tire and charging your phone. That is common stuff.

Then we have national social and cultural problems that confront us and our family everyday too.

Unfortunately, National problems can become  local problems if left unchecked and unmonitored.

We are supposed to have a National News that keeps us up to date on these things of importance. Some rely on them for what should be unbiased analysis of events in our Nation.

We have local media like TV news, TC Palm and a handful of single interest print and electronic sources as well.

Unfortunately, this is the place, along side Facebook and Twitter, that most people are getting what they think is news being delivered.

Most are really seeing a very superficial short take review of the current events if you rely solely on traditional media sources.

The narrative most people are getting placed in front of them is propaganda or sensational headlines for ratings. The sources lack credibility and solution. So naturally you get more frustrated. These messages are generally positioned with a bias to the sources editorial staff or whomever is paying the bills to make sure that the ad’s go to market.

What happens to you though if those sources, trusted as you may call them, are not telling you the whole story? Either because of ignorance to the depth of the issue or because of political or social bias? What if that problem becomes a day to day problem?

What happens for some reason when you go to “Main Stream Trusted Outlets” and it is not there and it is not found?

What happens when that problem becomes a threat? Not just in one location, but in your own front yard day after day after day?

How long do you ignore it?

You can find articles or videos like ours but when you go to the so-called leaders in local media, you see and hear nothing from them on real world matters that have a serious potential to harm you. If they do show the same information they down play it saying it is an over generalization. They say there is nothing to worry about look over here.

When this occurs in your front yard it is time to sit down and have serious conversation about what is going on. Not a popularity contest or a race baiting shouting match. It is time for substance.

Not a bunch of politicians empty worthless words strung together to make it look like it is all legitimate and in your best interest.

Ask honest questions then do your own homework. Censorship is as much about what you are not being told as it is about what you are being told.

That is the reason we embarked on this project. There are so many people out there that take what they see at face value and are trusting of the information or lack there of that they are receiving. TAM is offering perspective from several angles and voices.

We are including data, analysis and experience to bring Martin County a deeper look at what the media propagandists and the local political apparatuses are saying. They want you to hear what they think you should hear and bury what you do not need to hear, in their opinion.

For instance, TC Palm has had several opportunities to examine the 2018 Voter referendum language and illicit expenditure of tax dollars to the tune of 4 million dollars. Have you seen one written word about it from them? We know for a fact that local reporters with TC Palm have had access to the same information we have but for whatever political or social reason have decided to bury it. So we ran with it.


Martin School Board & The Union have pulled one over on us

School District Referendum Update


Does the fact that we broke the story and not TC Palm make the facts any more or less important. No, it does not. What it does do however is shine a little light on the state of the world you think you live in and shines a light on the manipulation of omission to drive a narrative.

It used to be such that truth drove the narrative in our adult world. Now we are, for many, unsuspecting recipients of political, social and cultural narrative at the expense of the truth.

We will continue to work hard to bring you the analysis and exposure of the false narratives as they exist in our busy day to day world.

It is never to late to learn something new. If you care as much about your world as you say you do then join us on a journey to unwrap the facts as they affect you without the bias of advertisers or agenda. We are your neighbor.

It is time to know who you are standing with and alongside. Equally as important it is time to know why you do so. Before you choose to stand with them or us please ask yourself this.

If you don’t, well, without the watchdog you better hope your sources are enough to keep you informed and your family safe from the dangers that threaten you day to day.

Watchdogs are needed now more than ever. As Facebook and others continue to decide what we and others have to say you can be sure to get the information direct from our site.
