Corporate Role of the ‘United States’ Government, Not What You Think!

Practical Conflict and Interests

Whether for better or for worse, the real politics of The ‘United States’ Government is (almost) as were meant to be as The United States of America-Constitution intended.  The political opened and closed doors were preset long ago and, the worse may be imminent

Seemingly, it started with the struggle between England and America, controversy raised from different motives, and various designs; all ineffectual, and the period of debate was closed. Arms, as the last resource, decided the contest; the appeal was the choice of the king, and the continent hath accepted the challenge, [1] ruled the day.

In 1871, a legislated act of Congress designated the boundaries of the District of Columbia as[2] The United States.  In essence, the law established a government business entity which, in effect, may have abolished the ‘original canonical’ Constitution of the United States of America (compare Black’s law dictionary before 2000).  The original Constitution of the United States of America (the Republic) created sovereigns for free citizens who were deemed the highest authority.  The law provided:

LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES Passed at [the] Third Session of [the] Forty-First Congress … An act to provide a government for the District of Columbia …hgfbvxc [3] Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of The United States of America in Congress …[4] the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes … and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation[5] not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and[6] provisions of this act …[7]

Encyclopedia Britannica – “Municipality (local government) municipality local government in the United States, urban unit of local government. A municipality is a political subdivision of the state within which a municipal corporation has[8] been established…”[9]

One may only muse at the idea of occupation or under siege of, The United States of America (the country), by an entity named after it.  “The United States Government” (the corporation).  Separation from Great-Britain left behind many nobles who apparently infiltrated the government of the new world.

A new era for politics is struck; a new method of thinking hath arisen …[10] Whatever was advanced by the advocates on either side of the question then, terminated in one and the same point … A union with Great-Britain: the only difference between the parties was the method of effecting it; the one proposing force, the other friendship; but it hath so far happened that the first hath failed, and the second hath withdrawn her influence.[11]

By a subsequent act, on June 11, 1878, appointment of [Congressional] commissioners provided for, to have and to exercise similar powers given to the commissioners appointed under the act of 1874.[12]  The commission was congress which described itself as “The United States Government.”  The United States of America remain separate and unchanged. Thus, The United States Government was set to rule as a political business entity over The United States of America.

American Heritage Dictionary provide government, “[T]he act or process of governing, especially the control and administration of public policy in a political unit.   The office, function, or authority of a governing individual or body, exercise of authority in a political unit; rule.”[13]

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Corporation as “…  [an] organization of persons and material resources, chartered by the state, for the purpose of conducting business …  the practice of proxy voting by management … “[14]

The players, it seemed, were “anti-federalist’s” suspicion that the Constitution allocated too much power to the national government and legislative bodies while decreasing the role of local communities.  These were probably ‘Conservatives’ of the “Republic-Democratic”, now Conservatives and Liberals—Republican and Democratic Parties, respectively.

“If we will suffer ourselves to examine the component parts of the English constitution, we shall find them to be the base remains of two ancient tyrannies, compounded with some new republican materials: … The remains of aristocratically tyranny in the persons of the peers … wherefore in a CONSTITUTIONAL SENSE they contribute nothing towards the freedom of the state…”[15]

The new Republican Party was born in 1854 at a meeting in Ripon, Wisconsin. Abolitionists and those opposed to the extension of slavery gathered to protest the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which opened territory to slavery that had been forbidden by the old Missouri Compromise of 1820.[16]

In November 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered ceremonial remarks [now] known as the Gettysburg Address on the site of the Civil War’s bloodiest battle.  The Gettysburg Address was meant to declare actualization, and reinforce the Declaration of Independence which was (then) based on modern democracy[17], and has—for the most part—withstood the test of time.  Although, what has not withstood the test of time is the last passage in the speech that provide “of the people, by the people and for the people.”

Government for the people, by the people and of the people is the ultimate of myths and may very be the cause of a confused, and cynical American public.  The people are not really aware, they just belief something is seemingly wrong and working to their disadvantage. Congress passed legislation (among others) promising “consistency with the Constitution,” then, adopted law that conflict with the intention(s) of the Constitution.  All of which occurred at the “Third Session of the Forty-First Congress.”

Gitelson et al. (American Government) define politics as “activities aimed at influencing or controlling government[18] for the purpose of formulating or guiding public policy.”[19]

Suspicion of government activism distinguishes conservatism from radical forms of political thought but also from[20] liberalism, which is a modernizing anti-traditionalist movement dedicated to correcting the evils and abuses resulting from the misuse of social and political power.[21]

Neo-Conservatives may be the greatest threat to life, liberty and property this country has ever known.[22]

…   United States of America … that … territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be,[23] …created in a Government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded … exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of the Act.[24]

Conservatism’s political doctrine emphasizes the value of traditional institutions and practices.

Conservatism is a preference for the historically inherited rather than the abstract and ideal. This choice has traditionally rested on an organic conception of society—that is, on the belief that society is not merely a loose collection of individuals, but a living organism comprising closely connected, interdependent members. Conservatives thus favor institutions and practices that have evolved gradually … manifestations of continuity and stability. Government’s responsibility is to be a servant, not the master, of existing ways of life, and politicians must, therefore, resist the temptation to transform society and politics.[25]

Conservatism has often been associated with traditional and established forms of religion. After 1789, the appeal of religion redoubled, in part because of a craving for security in an age of chaos. The Roman Catholic Church, because of its roots in the middle Ages, has appealed to more conservatives than has any other religion. Although he was not a Catholic, Burke praised Catholicism as “the most effectual barrier” against radicalism. But conservatism has had no dearth of Protestant, [26] Jewish, Islamic, and strongly anticlerical adherents.[27]

Although conservatives sometimes claim philosophers as ancient as Aristotle and Cicero as their forebears, the first explicitly conservative political theorist is generally considered to be Edmund Burke. In 1790 … [Burke reasoned] to be human is to inherit a culture, and politics cannot be understood outside that culture. In contrast to the Enlightenment philosophers Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, each of whom conceived of political society as based on a hypothetical social contract among the living …

Burke shocked his contemporaries by insisting with brutal frankness that “illusions” and “prejudices” are socially necessary. He believed that most human beings are innately depraved, steeped in original sin, and unable to better themselves with their feeble reason. Better, he said, to rely on the “latent knowledge” of prejudice, which accumulates slowly through the years, than to “put men to live and trade each on his own private stock of reason.” Among such prejudices are those that favors an established church and a landed aristocracy; members of the latter, according to Burke, are the “great oaks” and “proper chieftains” of society, provided that they temper their rule with a spirit of timely reform and remain within the constitutional framework.[28]

In Burke’s writings the entire political sense of Europe is formulated in a new idiom, designed to bring out the folly of French revolutionaries intoxicated by sudden power and abstract ideas of a perfect society. For Burke, modern states are so complex that any attempt to reform them on the basis of metaphysical doctrines alone[29] is bound to end in despotism. The passion and eloquence with which he developed this argument contributed significantly to the powerful conservative reactions against the French Revolution throughout Europe in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Conservatism is defined as:

1) One who espouses a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions and preferring gradual development to an abrupt change?

2) One who believes in less government being better government?

3) One who believes in such “outmoded” ideas as civil liberties (freedom of speech, separation of church and state, right to keep and bear arms, that kind of thing?)

4) one for whom the Republican Party no longer actually speaks.

5) A word that today’s so-called “conservatives” don’t know the definition of.

“Today’s so-called ‘conservatives’ don’t even know what the word means. They think I’ve turned liberal because I believe a woman has a right to an abortion. That’s a decision that’s up to the pregnant woman, not up to the pope or some do-gooders or the Religious Right. It’s not a conservative issue at all.” — Barry Goldwater is turning over in his grave.[30]

Unavoidable Tension

The United States is a corporation.[31]  So what!

Government efforts to rein in order and equality for all citizens through “for the greater good” ideology does not consider real human disparities against imperfect legislation.  Functions of Governmental Institutions do not serve everyone equally.  Elected leaders, divided and partial to the will of their constituency are self-serving and impossible to control.  The people shall Have what the People want, accept what they cannot have and denial of what they want.

What is Obvious Makes No Sense?

One of the many driving forces behind the Constitutional Convention was to remove and/or limit unfair political influence of the rich.  Colonies of the new world knew all too well the oppression they suffered at the hands of the rich.  Today, the constant widening of the inequality gap is felt by both the privileged and unprivileged class in America.  Equal legislative representation of the people.[32]

[O]n April 30, 2014, The United States Supreme Court—in landmark decision, made for sale (to the affluent) of American elections possible by providing:

The right to participate in democracy through political contributions [that] is protected by the First Amendment … it may not … regulate contributions [just] to reduce the amount of money in politics, or to restrict the political participation of some in order to enhance the relative influence of others. Politics in government is an essential part of getting work done, it is the driving force behind legislation. [33]

Immediate necessity makes many things convenient, which if continued would grow into oppressions. Expedience and right are different things. When the calamities of America required a consultation, there was no method so so proper, as to appoint persons from the several Houses of Assembly for that purpose.  And the wisdom with which they have proceeded hath preserved this continent from ruin. But as it is more than probable that we shall never be without a CONGRESS, every well-wisher to good order, must own, that the mode for choosing members of that body, deserves consideration. And I put it as a question to those, who make a study of mankind, whether representation and election are not too great a power for one and the same body of men to possess? When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember, that virtue is not hereditary.[34]

In short, Independence is the only BOND that can tie and keep us together. We shall then see our object, and our ears will be legally shut against the schemes of an intriguing, as well, as a cruel enemy.

The “United States” et al. is a corporation, originally incorporated February 21, 1871 under the name “District of Columbia,” a de facto government, formerly the ten square mile tract ceded by Maryland and Virginia and comprising Washington D. C, plus the possessions, territories, forts, and arsenals.

The significance of this is that, as a corporation, the United States has no more authority to implement its laws against “We The People” than does Mac Donald Corporations.  Except for one thing — the contracts, we’ve signed as surety for our strawman with the United States and the Creditor Bankers. These contracts binding us with the United States and the bankers are not with us, but with our artificial entity, which appears to be us but spelled with ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. All this was done under, VICE-ADMIRALTY COURTS.[35]

The American people, however, had sovereign standing in law, independent to any connection to the states or the Crown. This fact necessitated that the people be brought back, one at a time, under British Rule, and the commercial process was the method of choice in order to accomplish this task. First, through the 14th Amendment and then through the registration of our birth certificate and property. All courts in America are Vice-admiralty courts in the Crown’s private commerce.

Reasons to hate Barack Obama

  1. The President is the most powerful Black man in the world, notwithstanding equitable wealth
  2. The President understands what it is be alienated, despised and alone
  3. The President wants immigration policy that live-up to our “land of the free” slogan
  4. The President wants to keep the American Family, a family with basic living needs met
  5. The President wand equality for everyone, especially minorities and women
  6. The President wants to depose of greed and rule by those who would sacrifice children
  7. The President want Peace and Justice for the world

You  should hate the President because you are of the White privileged class who believe you are better than all the other species.  You should hate the President because the  Koch’s bribe is more than Americas offer and you need to associated with evil rather than what is fair and good.

Or, you can simply hate the President because you are angry that you  are poor and lost all hope in humanity that sit and watch children dying, seniors crying and politicians lying.

Motion Picture Film, A Story Board

These are exciting times for motion picture film in the digital age; technology is having a profound effect on film in the motion picture film industry.  First there was a silent movie, and then there was the sound. Movie formats and new ways of accessing video, including streaming and downloading means that power has shifted from the production to the consumers.

But wait, there’s more.  The internet is changing the manner in which films are consumed and distributed, not to mention the types of films we watch and who is making them.

Instant access, worldwide distribution and everyone with a cell phone are now all players in the video creation game. What was once a medium of the few – those who could afford the equipment – is now the most democratized (and sought-out) medium available. Everybody wants video, and they want it now.

Movies that tell stories, much as in the tradition of stage plays, are narrative films. These features films are promoted heavily, their titles and actors on marquees. Most are in the 100-minute tales. A French magician and inventor, Georges Méliès, pioneered narrative films with fairy tales and science-fiction stories to show in his movie house in 1896. Méliès’ Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella ran less than 10 minutes—short stories, if you will.  Notable innovations in narrative films since the earliest films have been sound, color and computer generated imagery.

Before films talked, they were heard through musical accompaniment.  Sound is the input we take most for granted.  The explosions, kisses, etc., are simple recordings but, there is a whole set of technicians and technologies that gives you the sense of what the action should look like.

Technology has a most profound effect on film in this day and age, and the industry must realize that the medium is moving into an age of digitally made, and digitally distributed movies.  Not only must the industry adapt to find new ways of monetizing digital consumption so that the legal ways of accessing films becomes more appealing than piracy, so must filmmakers, old and new, otherwise they run the risk of being left behind.

The art of film holds a unique place in the story of humanity. A human language, an art, if you will.  It is a medium for education, inspiration, and so much more. It provides employment for hundreds of thousands of people around the world, and enjoyment for countless billions more and provides a living record of the human condition and imagination at any given point in the human story.

Music and Recording Industry: Fans Don’t Care

Fans just want to listen to music!

Reassured by overwhelming success with old business models, the media sound industry missed a golden opportunity offered in the digital age of communications.  Fortunately, and thanks to the internet, opportunity knocks more than once.   2008 saw around 2,000 radio stations sending digital signals with much greater clarity.

The century-old relationship between the music and recording industry reflect the mutual dependency on sound that gave to the dance craze, phonographs and plastic records. Products of both industries were the mass-marketing of sound, free advertising.  Preformers like Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, sent record sales sky high.  Radio, in the 1950’s shifted to record music making airplay essential for recordings to succeed.

But, companies did not see Napster’s ominous potential coming to wipe out the retailing structure for the music industry. Soon after reeling in $14.6 billion, in 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court bought Napster to a grinding halt.  Beware the sleeping giants! MTV may very well be brand the marketplace has been waiting for. MTV brings an immediate brand equity, instant familiarity able to pull mainstream consumers into the digital age.

“The radio networks, losing advertisers to television, scaled back what they offered to affiliates. As the number of listeners dropped, local stations switched to more recorded music, which was far cheaper than producing concerts, dramas and comedies. Thus, radio reinvented itself, survived and prospered.  The industry found itself shaken again in the 1970s when the listeners flocked to new FM stations. Because FM technology offered superior sound fidelity, these became the stations of choice for music. AM listenership seemed destined to tank until, in another reinvention, most AM stations converted to nonmusic formats.”

Newer options like, RouteNote’s offers ‘free distribution’ model, so artist can distribute their work themselves, to music stores globally, free of charge and with no undisclosed fees and costs.  They get to keep 85% of  their royalties, artist maintain control of distribution with the option to switch distribution model at any time.  With quick access and an easy to use upload system, RouteNote may prove to be a formidable force, as with  self-publishing vs. traditional book publishers, music recording industry have more adaption to do!

Television: Tunnel vision: One hundred years of traditional broadcast without change

It is bold talk, aimed to corner the television communication’s audience segment, and it seems increasingly clear that it’s going to happen.   Though the death of television has been proclaimed, it is  unlikely this will occur.   The reach and influence, of mass free-to-air broadcasting, is declining.  The internet “is becoming embeded in our lives” and may eventually replace the television’s key role in the home.

It all begin well. After a promising start in early 1900 with technology of young Philo Farnsworth’s ‘live transmission of moving images’,  that became television as we know today.  Network broadcasts quickly premitted everyone, everywhere, with an antena, to access moving images broadcasted from central locations.  Then came narrowcasting technology of cable (like) companies which allowed creation of subscription revenues.

But the larger story, falling of broadcast news.  The rise of the worldwide Web has almost replaced newspapers and radio broadcasts as the most favorite news source for Americans, after TV.  The Internet is on an upward path. Television is stable but is in slow decline.

For younger audiences, the Internet has become the primary source for news, cable news. For entertainment, cable was created for movies, favorite shows and advertisements. The rise of Amazon, Apple, Youtube and Netflix doesn’t mean the demise of TV (yet); since handling the remote can be additive. When I am researching online or writing in automation, for example, I’m also checking email and texting on my iPhone and reading the Huffington Post on my iPad. The iPad and iPhone didn’t replace the TV. Then, with a few clicks, I watch a movie.  They supplemented my television.

Television is merely a charming piece of modern, expensive furniture to impress house guests.  It has no lead to go looking for revenues other than advertising.

And finally, with ‘neutral internet’ access under fire by telecom’s and big corporations, it may appear that traditional television may be on its way back to dominating news and entertainment.  The consuming public, however, who are dependent on their digital devices will most likely opt to pay (at the pump) whatever is required

Where do you see yourself reading news and viewing entertainment in the near future?  Your comments are welcome!

Radio: Virtual Existence of a Global Icon

Traditional radio may always attract most of the populations, but Internet (digital radio) is proving to be just as popular.  Digital radio is drawing millions of weekly users and will probably not slow down, anytime soon.

Many people thought rise of the internet would knock out traditional forms of media. Instead, the internet complimented newspapers, magazines and advertising.  The online community allowed for collaborations with traditional media and actually enhanced interactivity.  And, radio was no exception.

Despite critic’s view debacle.  Global audiences access online-only Internet radio and internet broadcast radio for weather conditions, traffic status, read the news, listen  to music and buy stuff from digital any digital devices connected to the internet.

Little exceeds access like convenience: listeners savor the idea of having the ability to create multiple stations based on their favorite artists, their song and genres.  They are now accustomed to listening to decade oldies and access radio stations across their State or across the country.  Its no wonder digital radio is increasingly popular!

Digital radio’s popularity is owned to control and choice, the things every thinking being require as part of individuality, and to be part of  society.

Digital radio has fewer ads yet, marketers have never been better, internet radio listeners actively purchase a wide range products and services.  The best selling product of internet radio is ‘FREE’ quality access and audio. You have iHeartRadio and Pandora and soon, Apple.  Hold on to your  butts because Google is eyeinng digital radio too.  Can’t wait to see what creative ideas come off their drawing board!

In fact, regular transistor radios and related hardware, transistors and the like seem to be the only casualties of the digital age of radio communications. “You exist, stuck in the maze thinking about how you’ll escape, and how wonderful it will be, and imagining that future keeps getting better and better.  You can’t wait for it to happen. You use the future to escape the present.

I wonder if the German scientist Heinrich Hertz’s and the young Italian [inventor] Guglielmo Marconi foresaw the evolution of their discoveries and inventions by imagining the future to escape the present?

If you have comments about being an internet ‘radio’er’ just let me know so I can put your comments to the pros.

Print Media: Ignoring—Printed books, Newspapers and Magazines—One Tradition at a Time

The consuming public do not stop reading newspapers, magazines and books, or buying subscriptions. They ignore bombardment of repetitive information useless and/or uninteresting to them.  They do not reject the news, advertisemet or entertainment information on print media. They deny collection of hardcopy media rendered obsolete by subsequent events and circumstances. It is digital media that sustain Life of the commercial printing press.

Exactly, What Makes You Think Printed Media is Still Alive?  Perhaps because some books, newspapers and magazines still being published (on paper), against digital media and the internet, mean that print media is still alive.  Wrong!  Use of the printing press in news rooms and companies does not mean the printing press is viable.’  The press is a complex hunk of, manual machinery that cost more to operate and produce printed products than its worth.

The printing press is ‘equitably insolvent’ because it can no-longer do what it use to.  Ebooks (reading and audio versions) is most efficient for authors and indie publishers for pennies on the dollar.  Newsrooms can downsize because digital news and advertising are more practical for online production; online access can replace ‘home delivery’ subscriptions.  These are not good signs for print media.

Digital media can survive on its own; the same is not true for print media.  It is not within the power of Mass Communications to save printed books, newspapers and magazines.  In-fact, it is an ever evolving tradition(s) that may finally nail the coffin of print media, shut!

For all these reasons, the printing press may ultimately end-up little more useful than personal laser printer.

Do you want to test it?  Okay so, take printed books, newspapers and magazines off its life support (of digital communications) and let’s see if it can take one breath on its own (sustain itself equitably).  Then I will understand your faith in the commercial printing press!
