Race Attacks in Indiantown (UPDATE) 9a 24 Sep

9a – 24 Sep 20 – TAM was unable to attend yesterday’s event. However we have learned a few things about the event.

First. The person that was the victim of what Anthony Dowling called a “Racial Attack” was working at Dollar Store when it happened. We do not know who the person is at this time. We are working to get a chance to talk with her.

Second. The first social media announcement that made the radar on this event a day prior to the event was posted by a sitting Councilman on his page with integrated graphics. (see below).

Third. The fact that a sitting Councilman uses his official page and title to promote and encourage participation in this cast an impression that the Village was supporting this effort through him. Just another reason for a communications policy to be in place with the Village. We e-mailed Howard Brown at the Village and will share that with you too. (see below)

Fourth: The Village has said they knew nothing of this event. So, a Councilman, using the Village Name promotes an event as Councilman and acts as an organizer and the Village Manager has no idea about it? How is that possible? Seems we should have a communication policy in place so we do not have these types of misleading impressions from Council members. Remember, they are just borrowing the Title of office.

Fifth: An on line FB user has indicated that Anthony had nothing to do with the event either. The same FB user invited us to come to the event to find out more details on the Attack.

Sixth. Our lack of ability to be on the ground was unfortunate. However, we will be working to bring this into focus a little bit better.

Lastly, no person should be subject to abusive language of any kind. What this situation shows us are a couple of things. Unfortunately the way that Anthony Dowling has played a race card and used the Village as a platform to do it from is sad. What was said to the young lady, from what we know, was wrong.

The gathering of the comm-unity to show that Indiantown will not tolerate this kind of action was affirming.

As soon as we have found a way to speak with the young lady we will let you know.

2P – 23 Sep 20 – TAM has received word from Howard Brown.

He indicates that they know nothing about the event other than flyers that they have seen.

So, we at least know that this is not a Village Sanctioned Event as we were led to believe by Anthony’s use of his Title and the Village Of Indiantowns name.

Thank you though Anthony for your comm-unity service on the matter.

12p – 23 Sep 20 – TAM has learned through Councilman Anthony Dowling’s official page that he is promoting and organizing an event for Social Justice Tonight @ 5P

The details follow. There are several questions that many of you have had about this event, and we agree with you. The matter of Race Crime is something that if it is occurring in the manner implied, well then Law Enforcement should be the first place to go.

If this is truly a matter of racial hate crime then we should all be intolerant of it.

However, the details on the event create more questions than answers. So, we have asked them for you.

We have asked Councilman Dowling publicly for a response this time. All other attempts in the past for answers have been met with a demand to “send him a letter and he will get back to us.”

We have also asked the Village for a response or a press release on the matter. Anthony is operating as Councilman for this event so we want the Village to have a chance to express their involvement and support of the event as well.

For those who wish to attend please share this information out as to the date and time.

TAM is planning representation at the event to cover all of the happenings on the ground.

As soon as Anthony responds to your questions we will let you know.

Here is a screen scrape of the event :

Here are the Questions we asked and hope to have an answer for soon:

This event is not a Village sponsored event.

Howard – Thank You for the prompt response. More than Anthony has done. This is the Event I am talking about on Councilman Dowling’s official Social page – He appears to be representing the Village. I have to ask, how could you not know? Is there a policy in place for these types of Communication events that controls this appearance of involvement officially and thus on behalf of the Village? As a personal aside – Oh and sorry for the Harold thing in prior e-mail (mental lapse). – Editor

Please take a minute  to read the following that was sent to us by one of our own, Ms. Kim Jackson from KJ’s Corner.

This is a cry for help. PLEASE HELP my grandmother get rid of the termites that have taken over her home and get her roof fixed. The roof has been leaking for awhile but my granddad was able to patch it here and there. They were both on a fixed income but they still helped with their grandchildren, great grandchildren, and anyone who simply needed a meal or a place to get some rest. On July 12, 2020, my granddad passed away suddenly. Through her grieving now she has to worry about how she will get things fixed around the house. My grandmother suffers from COPD and a number of other health issues. The rain in the house and the termites really make it harder for her to breathe. Thank you in advance for your contribution.

The Newly Awakened

(This article is a reprint from a 2016 discussion)

“The Newly Awakened”

<<full article here>>

Here is an excerpt:

…… “They sensed that someone was starting to mess with their happy blind relationship to the materialistic free market American dream. In other words, they are broke for the most part or are working like a beast to stay even. I get it. To quote from a previous post:

“Apathy does not make us stupid.  On the contrary, a great deal of energy is used to offset the world and hibernate in an apathetic state of existence. Apathy requires an acute awareness of the obvious. It is what drives some to having a broken “give a damn”. Many can only cope with the influence of the pressure of reality by excusing themselves from it and gathering in flocks for comfort. They yearn for a sheep dog.”

And now they are awake, angry and wanting revenge against whomever shattered their illusion of American integrity. In most respects some have herded together and really are angry political mobs.” ………..

BOCC Waste Contract Turned on Some Lights

If we do not watch and hold the elected accountable then they become tyrannical

Guest Editorial Column: by RJ Pozi

Martin County; “We’re Special!”

The last 6 months has exposed two axioms we’re told about Government and power but don’t often see it out in the open. One being; “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.

The other is “Government is not the solution; Government is the problem”. The COVID 19 “State of Emergency” has given protection for our Local Board of County Commissioners to over step and misrepresent the Taxpayers.

First, the mask mandates and lock-downs effectively make Martin County a US Constitution Free Zone! Is that what Commissioners Smith and Ciampi mean by our County being “special”?

Secondly, the MC Fire Rescue contract and now the garbage contract process both being decided with clear cronyism and graft. It lowers any semblance of Integrity or decency in bad faith.

Moving the goals posts is this Boards favorite tactic. Where is TCPalm exposing them for it? The commitment of the BOCC to grant a 20% raise to the MC Fire Rescue during a recession or possible oncoming depression is irresponsible and as terrible as was building a Water-park that loses $400,000 a year or remodeling a Public Golf course costing we taxpayers twice what they estimated.

The entire Garbage contract bid process at this past BOCC meeting best exposes the good old boy game and unprincipled way of doing business that is Martin County’s dirty little secret. The meeting was a sandbagged intentional production reminiscent of the erroneous and/or intentional productions that were the early Covid meetings, starring Robert Lord of Cleveland Clinic lying by omission and Caroline Vitani from the FDOH spreading questionable (at best) info from that haphazard collection of incompetence.    

Who casts these “Experts”?

This past meeting was collusion on parade with cronies and their dependents posing heart felt stories of familiarity and charity that doesn’t fool any of us who are on to the game. Donations that come from taxpayer funds to Waste Management who contribute to the Local charities and functions that they get to write off.

Then we get to fund via the higher rates this BOCC has committed us to. This Board of Commissioners and their handlers, Admin Kryzda, and small print Attorney Woods, give the cover for our BOCC to act like a body of despots without any semblance of integrity and honor.

I am appalled by the lack of integrity and decency by this Board. They represent the people of Martin County poorly when they operate without principle and ignore their oaths of office.

I too used to think we were a “Special” County that had wholesome, decent and principled shared values and Government. Evidently with this collection of unopposed Commissioners without integrity and principles, I was wrong.

We’re Special alright, just like PBC, Broward and Miami Dade. Great Job BOCC, that’s your legacy!

BLM & Marxism (UpDated)

The link  in this article is to a conversation for adults. It contains Adult material. If you feel like you suffer from Trigger Warnings then you should probably stay in this safe space for now.

A new study by Princeton University’s US Crisis Monitor shows that the U.S. experienced 637 riots between May 26 and Sept. 12, and 91% of those riots were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement.

In other words, BLM was responsible for 9 out of 10 riots across the country.

Riots are defined by the project as “demonstrations in which any demonstrators engage in violently disruptive or destructive acts (e.g. violence, looting, vandalism, etc.), as well as mob violence in which violent mobs target other individuals, property, businesses, or other groups.”

“Forty-nine states, not counting Washington, D.C., experienced riots during that time period, the study found. California led the nation with 86 riots during that time, closely followed by Oregon with 79 riots during that time period, the data show,” reports the Daily Caller.

Mainstream media talking heads have repeatedly asserted that the riots were either not happening on any large scale or were “mostly peaceful.”

The statistics suggest otherwise.



Here is a preview of the Story:

“….. I know the difference between endemic and systemic racism. It is because I was taught about the Ill’s of racism. It is because I was taught our American History.

I was taught not only the bright spots but also the dark times we have suffered. That my dear friends is how a White 55 Year Old American Male of European descent can say, I love everyone. I am not a racist. If you think I am then you better check your definition at the door and reprogram.

It is time for the Adults to take this narrative back. We have to find common ground now and stand. Or the ground that divides us will consume the space and we may not have a chance to share again. After we can agree on that which we have in common. Well, it makes it that much easier to disagree on those things we do not. ….. ”

Today is Constitution Day America & 28 Principles of Liberty

Today, 17 September, 2020 is CONSTITUTION DAY in These Untied States of America. As Unapologetic Americans let’s celebrate the Great things the world has gained from it’s creation.

Here is a link to the 28 Principles of Liberty

Principle 1. The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law. Natural law was defined as the order in which the Creator made everything work properly. There are certain laws which govern the entire universe, and just as Thomas Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence, there are laws which govern in the affairs of men which are “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.” If governments and human relationships are formed according to these laws, they will succeed, if not, they will surely fail, as history has proven. (First paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.)

Principle 2. A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong. The Founders knew they could not succeed in this political building without the support of the “Supreme Judge of the world” and without a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence .” They knew this would not happen unless they kept His commandments which amounted to being virtuous and morally strong. (Last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.)

Principle 3. The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders. No greater case can be made of the damage done to a free people by power-hungry and tyrannical leaders than the long list of abuses Thomas Jefferson listed in the Declaration. While directed at King George, these abuses are typical of leaders who are without virtue and morality. (List of grievances in the Declaration of Independence)

Principle 4. Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained. As in Principle 2, the Founders knew they could not succeed in this political building without the support of the “Supreme Judge of the world” and without a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence .” They believed they would have His support and protection if they relied on Him, constantly kept His laws, and taught their children to do likewise. (Last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.)

Principle 5. All things were created by God, therefore upon Him all mankind are equally dependent, and to Him they are equally responsible. The Founders considered the existence of the Creator as the most fundamental premise underlying all self-evident truth. The words Nature’s God, Creator, created, Supreme Judge of the Universe, and Divine Providence are used throughout the Declaration of Independence.

Principle 6. All men are created equal. (An exact quote from the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence)

Principle 7. The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things. “—That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men…” (Second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence)

Principle 8. Men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. (Second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence)

Principle 9. To protect man’s rights, God has revealed certain principles of divine law. The Founders knew that God had revealed certain laws for human happiness, such as laws against killing, stealing, adultery, lying, coveting, etc. These are reflected in the right of man to form a government to protect his unalienable rights of life, liberty, and property outlined in the Declaration and the Bill of Rights.

Principle 10. The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people. The last paragraph of the Declaration makes it clear that the people as a whole, by their representatives in Congress, have complete authority from the Supreme Judge of the Universe to govern themselves in every way and to take their rightful place among the sovereign peoples of the earth.

Principle 11. The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government which has become tyrannical. The second paragraph of the Declaration makes it clear that the people have a God-given right to throw off dictators and establish a government that will better protect them in their rights.

Principle 12. The United States of America shall be a republic. Article 1.2.1 of the Constitution sets forth the provision that gives the American people the right to vote for their own representatives, thereby making the United States a constitutional republic of the people.

Principle 13. A constitution should be structured to permanently protect the people from the human frailties of their rulers. In forming our government on the basis of Natural Law, the Founders dealt directly with the human nature characteristic that power almost always corrupts. The separation of powers, checks and balances, and limited governmental powers in the Constitution were all methods employed to check the human frailties which result in run-away power. That is why the Constitution will never be obsolete or outdated.

Principle 14. Life and liberty are secure only so long as the right of property is secure. The fifth amendment of the Bill of Rights specifically prohibits the federal government from taking private property of the people for public use without just compensation. It is a recognition of the sacred right to property and that property is really an extension of one’s life and liberty.

Principle 15. The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free-market economy and a minimum of government regulations. Other than setting up a proper monetary system and ensuring the free flow of commerce between the states, no power is given to congress to regulate economic affairs of the people. It is a manifest intent to keep the federal government completely out of the free-market economy and to leave any needed regulation to the states.

Principle 16. The government should be separated into three branches – legislative, executive, and judicial. Articles I, II, and III of the Constitution create this beautiful separation of powers to prevent the tyranny of consolidated government.

Principle 17. A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power. This constitutional system of pitting human nature against human nature by checking each other’s power is pure genius.

Principle 18. The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written constitution. Of the 200 or so nations on the earth today, about 125 of them have written constitutions. However, ours is the oldest one—one of the youngest nations has the oldest written Constitution. The Founders were the first in modern times to realize that the best way to preserve good government and the rights of the people, is to write them down.

Principle 19. Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained in the people. Article 1.8 contains the twenty powers delegated to congress; Article II contains the six areas of responsibility of the president; and, Article III contains the eleven kinds of cases assigned to the federal courts. The Tenth Amendment reminds us that all other powers are reserved to the states and the people.

Principle 20. Efficiency and dispatch require government to operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority. Article VI declares the Constitution to be the supreme law of the land. If a law is passed which violates the rights of people, it can be declared null and void by the guardians of the Constitution.

Principle 21. Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom. The Tenth Amendment leaves most power to govern with the states and local governments. This is where freedom really manifests itself.

Principle 22. A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men. The people reserve the right in Article I.1.1 not to be governed by any law not passed by their representatives. Article III gives the power to the judiciary to prevent a citizen from being prosecuted by an unjust law which violates the unalienable rights of the people.

Principle 23. A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education. The reaction of King George to the list of grievances in the Declaration of Independence is an example of why tyrants want to keep the people ignorant of their actions. In order to preserve and encourage the sacred right of people to gain knowledge, the Constitution forbids the federal government from involving itself in education of the people. It leaves this responsibility to the states and the people where it can be locally controlled. (Tenth Amendment)

Principle 24. A free people will not survive unless they stay strong. Article 1.8 gives Congress the power to maintain a military.

Principle 25. “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.” No authority can be found in the Constitution for the United States to tie its sovereignty to any other nation or to give the people’s money to foreign rulers.

Principle 26. The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore, the government should foster and protect its integrity. No authority can be found in the Constitution to involve the federal government in family affairs. The Founders knew any laws dealing with these kinds of sensitive issues must be kept close to the people, thereby best preserving this most sacred institution.

Principle 27. The burden of debt is as destructive to freedom as subjugation by conquest. Article 1.8 lists “to pay the debts” as the first use of public funds. The Founders considered it immoral to pass debts on to the next generation.

Principle 28. The United States has a manifest destiny to be an example and a blessing to the entire human race. The entire Constitution was intended to be such a model for the world of how a people can govern themselves and thereby enjoy an unlimited amount of freedom, prosperity, and peace. Our greatest export was to be freedom.

We have a time for MC Fair ground Q&A with the Indiantown Chamber (UPDATE


Where: Indiantown Civic Center-15675 SW Osceola – Indiantown, FL 34956

When: Tuesday September 29th, Starts promptly @ 6:30PM

More to follow – Please share this out with your friends and Facebook groups.

The Honorable Councilwoman Miss Susan Gibbs-Thomas will be on hand to represent the Village Council.

This is your chance to ask questions and see what all of the excitement surrounding the Fair is all About !

We are busting with pride to announce to you that the Indiantown Chamber of Commerce will be CO-SPONSORING the Fairground Discussion and Update. We have been working to bring you a whole lot more in the near future that is in partnership with the Chamber in Indiantown. Maybe some open air citizen councils to discuss public matters like Park and Recreation, Beautification, LDR’s etc. In the meantime – Let’s Talk About the Fair with everyone.

Also, we have asked Ms. Susan Gibbs-Thomas if she would please represent the Village Council at this meeting and she has happily agreed to do so.

We welcome all the residents, businesses and interested party – Dates for Palm City and Indiantown to be announced soon.

(16 SEP 20) – Today, The TAM Editor reached out to the Martin County Fair Association Director and asked him a question.

We asked him this.  “If  TAM is able to accommodate a TOWN HALL meeting of citizens in Indiantown and in Palm City would he and his Association come and update us on what the developments are in with the new Fairgrounds”.

Well, Jay, being who Jay is, said OF COURSE. We explained that there is a lot of foggy air and disinformation that the TAM wanted to help clear up. We explained that the best information we could find was a one year old Video from the MCTPA. Besides, no one else is keeping us up to date with the info so we thought we would ask.

So we did. When we did ask the Fair Association agreed.

Jay thought it was a great idea to offer an opportunity to have a discussion and update. Same as John Haddox has indicated on our FB TAM site.

So, standby – we are working with a community partner in Indiantown and Palm City to help make sure this is a worth while educational civic event for the People. We are excited and know that you will not want to miss this opportunity to see what is coming your way – real soon.

We believe that up front discussion will help to prevent after the fact suspicion. We believe up front information and feedback will make for an even more successful MC fair that benefits the community even more so.

Please join us as community members to learn more about our world and the things that will be there in our future and our children’s.

As soon as we have a date we will announce our community partners in the event.

You see, when we all come together around a single mission, well, we are unstoppable. We want to thank the MC Fair Association, their Board and all the people involved. They are doing the lifting. Let’s give them an objective and informative platform to show us what they are doing on our behalf.
