CLARION EDICT V. MAINSTREAM MEDIA cont..
I was born and raised in Biddeford, was self-employed for nearly 30 years until the unlawful confiscation of my business property, ran for elected office with infiltration of the Democratic party, produced and hosted my own public access tv talk show "The Maine Forum", was unlawfully removed from my home by a 13 member armed and masked SWAT team because I stood my ground against corrupt City of Biddeford officials and understood my rights and civil liberties. I have had much support from people within the community, however, people fear their government and are afraid to speak out publicly for fear of losing their busineses, homes or BAR licenses!
The Maine Forum aired from April 18, 2001 to July 2002 when (now former mayor) Donna Dion and (now former city councilor) Jim Grattelo banned me from Biddeford Public Access. My reasons for going public was due to the controlled mainstream media’s refusal to print or broadcast the truth that people had a right to know. I was tired of having issues brushed under the rug. The Maine Forum was a vehicle used to educate and inform the public on issues that involved everyone at the local, county, state and federal levels. It was time to take a stand for my (our) rights before we no longer had any rights left. Many wonderful and interesting people from Maine to California were guests on my program.
The July 4, 2001 program “What Price Justice?’ featured Philip Castora, a licensed Private Investigator, who gave a report containing his opinions and conclusions with respect to various public documents relative to his investigation into fraudulent confiscations of property through the concerted actions of city officials, bankers, the courts…….and let’s not forget William Zafirson, HAZA Auctioneer who went crying to the mayor because I mentioned his name on my program. A copy of “What Price Justice?” was mailed out to many of you out there and you know the contents of the broadcast. The Clarion Edict will expose this First Amendment violation in connection to the theft of my home, the MCLU’s involvement in the filing of a complaint against the city, the journey through the court system and the results. Isn't this where you are with your foreclosure issues?
My articles will bring the truth to the people of Maine, and across this country, about the corrupt state, judicial and federal officials who are influenced by special interests where our citizens are getting abused and where the perpetrators find shelter under the state and federal Attorneys General do-nothing umbrella of authority. The dots will be connected to show a pattern of co-operation and obstruction of justice under color of legal authority between all levels of local, county, state and federal governments to sock it to us, intimidate and deny us due process. We are sitting ducks for official harassment and are getting wrongfully harmed, scammed, beaten, drugged or otherwise deprived of our life, liberty and property by a whole system of administrative terror which has grown up throughout the country.
As Sam Adams famously wrote, "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."
I'd like to take my hat off to Deb Reagan, publisher of the Clarion Edict, Maine's newest on-line, "watchdog" newspaper. Reporting on and getting to the bottom of corruption in Maine is no small undertaking. Many of the writers of this publication have been affected by corruption in our State in one way or another. I know I most certainly have.
Maybe you came upon this piece because you've had your rights taken away from you, or have been ignored by a member of law enforcement or another public servant who has taken an oath of office to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States.
This writer found many victimized people through my own on-line searches for others affected by public corruption which has become rampant in our State. For example, there were false allegations and perjurous testimony made against me during an assault charge court case in 2006. This kept me from investigating fraud committed against the workers of the former Great Northern Paper Company in the Katahdin Region of Maine . Despite numerous attempts to remedy this matter, it continues to remain an on-going matter. Even to the point of illegal warrants existing for my arrest that are in direct violation of Maine Bar Rules and Maine Rules of Criminal Procedure. (Maine Bar Rule 3.4(2)(i) and Maine Rule of Criminal Procedure 44b to be exact).
Presently, our State has a new administration. Depending on the side of the political spectrum one may subscribe to, you may like the choice Maine has for Governor, or you are likely to be deeply angry. There have certainly been a lot of mistakes, especially on the public relations side from "Kiss my ass," quotations to the now infamous "Mural-Gate."
Only time will tell whether or not this administration will follow through on the numerous matters of public corruption left over from the previous administration. So far, a Government Oversight Committee has looked into and decided on an illegal sale of State Property to a Maine Prison Warden. The Maine Turnpike authority has filed a lawsuit in Cumberland Country Superior Court against the former director of the Turnpike who stepped down only months after this new administration was sworn in. Former Turnpike Director, Paul Violette, held that post for 23 years before stepping down in March of this year. According to the Bangor Daily News, former Director Paul Violette, also took the fifth when subpoenaed before the State's Government Oversight Committee.
Back in July, the Portland Press Herald wrote an article reporting that the Secretary of State was investigating alleged voter fraud. Then newly appointed Secretary of State Charles Summers had been informed by an employee of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles that "evidence of non-citizens registering to vote was ordered to be destroyed by senior management within the Secretary of State's Office." The allegations went back some five years.
That's a lot of corruption under the previous Baldacci Administration, and that's only what's been reported, and had action taken on it so far.
If you're from Maine many readers will remember the Oct. 4th, 2006 bank robbery by Irishman Niall Clarke who robbed the Bank of America branch at the Bangor Mall at gunpoint. The Portland Press Herald reported in March of 2010 that Niall used a Portland address to get a Maine Driver's License even though he was not a U.S. Citizen and had overstayed his visa while in the U.S.. Robert O'Connell, then who headed the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles had met Niall Clarke at a bar during the St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston and carried on a email correspondence that helped Clarke obtain the license that Clarke used to obtain the gun which he had purchased across the river in Brewer. Robert O'Connell was the subject of an "internal investigation" but was never disciplined for his role in assisting a non US citizen in obtaining a driver's license by the Baldacci Administration. It later came out that Clarke had previously been diagnosed with a mental illness. He was sentenced in Federal Court to 33 months plus seven years for brandishing the gun of which Robert O'Connell's direct assistance in obtaining his Maine Driver's license made Clarke eligible for.
Reading these four separate cases one might think that public corruption was par for the course under the Baldacci Administration. John Baldacci was appointed at the turn of the year by the Obama Administration to a $163,000 one year position to "study" the Military Health Care System. Some people in Maine, including this author, think someone ought to be "studying and investigating" the source of all this public corruption during the previous gubernatorial administration and why so few people were held accountable during said administration.

People, the Prison Warden even had prisoners do landscaping work on the property she owned until it was recently reversed by the State. If that doesn't bring back memories of Shawshank Redemption this writer doesn't know what will.
In Maine we love the film, "The Boondock Saints," in which the priest quotes, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing". This is often attributed to Edmund Burke, The British Statesman. Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia says he didn't say it. But we've all seen the movie and know that no matter who said it, it's still true.
