POLITICAL ACTION COORDINATING CONFERENCE (PACC)
WHY PACCs? No individual or organization can unilaterally win our cultural war of LIBERTY vs SLAVERY. Many have tried with little or no success. Yet, their combined influence could create an undeniable political force. By focusing on the few actions that can produce meaningful change the force could hopefully redirect America’s course. A PACC is an excellent vehicle for identifying individuals and/or organizations motivated by results. Any individual or organization unwilling to work with others on issues of mutual concern through a PACC are part of the problem; not the solution and should be ignored.
WHAT IS A PACC ? A PACC is a moderated forum designed to efficiently provide for an exchange of information to facilitate identifying common concerns, those sharing them, and a mechanism for unity of action in addressing the concern among willing participants. They are based on three caveats.
#1. every participating individual and organization must be able to make their special concerns known to all participants in order to identify others who share an interest in it.
#2. every participant must retain their freedom to unilaterally pursue their special concerns while jointly pursuing those of common interest with others.
#3. participation in a “PACC” doesn’t imply endorsement of others concerns, objectives, strategies or tactics; only a desire to reach a common goal and a willingness to coordinate with others on actions found mutually beneficial.
REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION – To participate in a PACC participants must:
1. agree to disagree agreeably and with facts, not opinions;
2. present each of their concerns via a one page Executive Summary containing a clear description of the concern, related facts, a discussion of the facts, conclusion(s), recommendations, action being taken and support sought.
3. decide on whether or not to participate in pursuing each objective presented at the PACC;
4. participate on Objective Pursuit Team(s) to plan and manage actions on objectives of mutual concern.
PACCs ARE NOT: an umbrella organization, an uncontrolled open mike, a place for anyone in general disagreement with the thirty Republican governors who pledged “to restore to the states and people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the Constitution,” or a hierarchically structured meeting. (i.e., there is no dominant participant; only a moderator)
THE WHO of PACCs – All PACC participants must be supportive of the Republican governor’s pledge and willing to meet the previously stated requirements for participation. Beyond that, local participation is open to everyone. County level FOLU chapters consist of individuals representing local chapters of the Friends of Liberty. State level participation is limited to a representative of each county FOLU chapter and of all statewide organizations who share FOLU’s goal of a government operating within the policies and procedures cited in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights.
THE HOW of PACCs – Every PACC should have a moderator chosen by the participants or appointed by the PACC sponsor. Typical agenda for a PACC is: select a moderator, opening ceremony (an invocation and Pledge of Allegiance are musts if the PACC is sponsored by FOLU affiliates), administrative remarks, OPT reports (old business), presentation of new concerns, Q & A session, role call for each introduced concern (fill in matrix), OPT formation for new objectives, OPT workshops, closing comments of each participant. (normal limit-3 to 5 minutes though each can yield time to another), convocation, adjourn.
PACC PRODUCTS – A PACC will produce three primary products:
1. A matrix showing all introduced concerns, the participants sharing each of the concerns and the objective(s) related thereto.
2. Unity of action via Objective Pursuit Teams made up of individuals and/or organizations sharing any given concern and having a willingness to work with others in acting on it.
3. A knowledge of the attendees who are sincere in wanting to support the governor’s pledge; thereby providing a firm foundation for discerning those worthy of support vs those motivated for the wrong reasons.
An IPR will normally be moderated by a coordinator. Each person responsible for satisfying one or more of the objectives or tasks is given time to present the actions required to satisfy the objective or task, the actions completed and status of remaining actions. This information permits the person(s) responsible for the overall mission to make informed decisions.
With minor modification the following could be used by those fulfilling the role of “Toastmaster” for a Friends of Liberty team when speaking to civic, religious, veteran groups etc. on behalf of FOLU..
James Madison wrote: “The preservation of a free government requires, not merely that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained, but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such encroachment exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are TYRANTS. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them and are slaves…..”
It disturbs me to have to tell you we are slaves to tyrants. These tyrants, with the support of our elected officials, have forced a monetary policy on us that is in compliance with the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto. The policy is both ungodly and unconstitutional. It also mathematically guarantees that the owners of the central banks will one day hold title to all real wealth of their choice, a mortgage on the remainder and a claim on all future production. A result of this is that the united States of America, a nation birthed as a Constitutional Republic whose government was founded on biblical principles for the purpose of securing for Americans their unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and opportunity for Happiness, is history!
Our institutions of government have been taken over by political parties and people committed to merging the U.S. into a one world government based on Fascism, a political philosophy stressing the primacy and glory of the state, unquestioning obedience to it, subordination of individual will to the state’s authority, and harsh suppression of dissent.
This installation of Fascism is but a prelude to the New World Order (NWO) defined as “a world that has a supra-national authority to regulate world commerce and industry, an international organization that would control the production and consumption of oil; an international currency that would replace the dollar; a world development fund that would make funds available to free and communist nations alike; and an international police force to enforce the edicts of the New World Order.” By definition, this NWO will be a global prison operating under Humanism, a religion recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court.
On 11-22-1994, thirty governors agreed “Federal action has exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution and thus violated rights guaranteed to the people. The government of ’limited, delegated powers’ envisioned by the framers has become a government of virtually unlimited power.”
One highly important unlawful act is the use of self-inflicted emergencies and the subsequent use of “emergency powers” which, in the eyes of those intent upon creating the New World Order, give government the authority to totally ignore our Constitution and thereby the right to “exceed the commission from which they derive their authority” in the words of Madison. Using this unlawful authority, they stole our lawfully constituted government!
Here is an example of their crimes. In Public Law 313 (4-14-1952), the Federal government admitted that its support of the United Nations is unconstitutional and contingent upon its continuing to operate under “emergency powers.” It said: “Whereas the existing state of war…and the termination thereof…would render certain statutory provisions inoperative….and Whereas some of these statutory provisions are needed to insure the…capacity of the United States to support the United Nations…it is desirable to extend these statutory provisions.” Incidentally, government’s official enemy in this “war” is we the people who were declared to be such via the “emergency banking act” of March 9. 1933.
According to Mr. Carl Rix, former President of the American Bar Association, America’s biblically based Constitution was replaced by the United Nations Charter. In Senate testimony on May 11, 1955, he summarized our Constitution’s death by saying: “Congress is no longer bound by its Constitutional system of delegated power. Its only test is under the obligatory power to promote human rights (not to be confused with the unalienable rights guaranteed us by our Constitution) in these fields of endeavor: Civil, political, economic, social and cultural. These (powers) are found in Articles 55 and 56 of the Charter of the United Nations. Congress may now legislate as an uninhibited body with no shackles of delegated powers under the Constitution. Our entire system of government of delegated powers of Congress has been changed to a system of undelegated powers without amendment (of the Constitution) by the people of the United States.”
It is self evident that those of us wishing to leave a legacy of liberty to our posterity must unite in an effort to Take America Back to its lawfully constituted form of government. This is our challenge! To meet this challenge it is both urgent and necessary to begin with a plan as a failure to plan is a plan to fail. It isn’t enough to just understand how the TYRANTS are negating our God given rights or to teach others. Our challenge is to reclaim control of government and to resurrect these rights! To do so, we must unite on issues and meaningful actions of common concern and create a team willing to confront those in positions of public trust with offerings of truth, demands it be acted upon, and the ability and determination to hold those who won’t act responsibly accountable.
The sad fact is that if we allow our nation’s organic Constitution consisting of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution of the united States of America, and Bill of Rights to become a political relic, the entire world faces the sunset of freedom and justice as its sacred
principles and procedures are the world’s beacon of hope! It must be resurrected, protected and restored at any cost!
As you probably know, the price of freedom isn’t free. It demands constant vigilance over ourselves and government! Providing voters the knowledge, courage, and resolution to act is a responsibility of leadership. People must be informed of their plight and the fact that an honest person has two choices when aware of a wrong. (1) She or he can act to make it right or (2) cease to be honest. I pray you will choose to be honest. I often pray for God’s direction and protection during these turbulent times and that you will do likewise with full confidence that if it be God’s will, Americans will repent, act out their faith and stand.
The Friends of Liberty United is developing a communications system allowing registrants to locate and communicate with other concerned voters in their zip code area, county and state.
People who sincerely want to restore lawful government and to honor James 4:17 and do what’s right should register with it, urge their contacts to do likewise, and help create a Take America Back team by assuming responsibility for one of its identified missions.
I thank you for listening to my remarks and pray you will give prayerful consideration to actively supporting FOLU. To our knowledge, it is the only organization having a plan in place and the tools needed “to restore to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the Constitution” as thirty governors pledged to do.
