Trump – America’s Final Stand (A Divine Mandate)

Introduction

God Bless Donald Trump, Mike Pence and their Cabinet as they take on the monumental task of “Making America Great Again.”  President-elect Trump has clearly defined his “first one-hundred days” agenda and continuing strategies to accomplish that noble and honorable endeavor of returning America to a Nation of integrity, patriotism, unity and “Made in America” pride.  Again, may God richly bless Mr. Trump and overshadow him and his Administration with our Lord’s wisdom, discernment and protection.

make america great again

As a retired Houston Police Officer and former US Marine Infantryman, I am impressed with Mr. Trump’s focus on securing our borders; supporting our Military and our Veterans; making health-care affordable once again; lowering taxes and simplifying the tax-code; bringing manufacturing back to America and increasing job growth while stimulating our fledgling economy…may Mr. Trump be incredibly successful in these endeavors!  With that said, as honorable and necessary as these campaign promises are to the American People, they are not sufficient in and of their self to truly “Make America Great Again.”  Why?

The campaign promises and strategies articulated by Mr. Trump to improve America’s economic situation and remedy concerns relevant to National and International security are simply a response to symptoms of a much deeper and entrenched causation, a metastasizing cancer that is attacking the heart and soul of America.  I often refer to this insidious cancer in my related articles as “the enemy within.”

Moral-less America – Causation/Brief Overview

Over the previous five-decades, America has begun a systematic rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ – this rejection of our Lord is most notable beginning with the removal of prayer in our public school system, ENGEL ET AL. v. VITALE ET AL. (1962) and “it was in 1963 — one year later — when the court banned Bible reading and overturned a state law banning the teaching of evolution” see: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/06/25/today-marks-the-50th-anniversary-of-the-prayer-ban-in-public-schools-heres-the-history/

after-edengay-history-for-kids

Soon, society rallied around the teachings of Dr. Benjamin Spock and Margaret Sanger subsequent to the controversial “Red Scare”  involving FBI Director Hoover and McCarthyism in the 1950’s. For the sake of brevity, I will permit you, the reader, to connect the dots ultimately leading to America’s rejection of Jesus Christ and our Nation’s allegiance to the ideology of Socialism and Moral Relativism that has slithered into mainstream America over the previous five-decades.  Long story short, the concerns of Hoover and McCarthy relevant to Communist infiltration have proven themselves as valid and the Socialist-Communist Ideology, intertwined with the ideology of Moral Relativism, ultimately combined to evolve into what is now known as the Democratic Party of the United States to wit “the enemy within.”

Know this…

  • The Democratic Party is the Party of Death…
  • The Democratic Party is the Party of Sexual Perversion…
  • The Democratic Party is the Party of Socialism and radically espouses an Anti-American Agenda…
  • The Democratic Party is a Party of racism, hatred, division, exclusion and entitlement…

Contrary to the Socialist-Democratic Party’s advertised political platform espousing inclusion, diversity and racial equality, the Socialist-Democratic Party of the United States is a Political Party of death, immorality, inequality, prejudice, God-hating and hatred of a conservative America.  To adequately explain and substantiate these allegations here would require far too much time; therefore, for clarification, see: https://rickeyholtsclaw.wordpress.com/2016/11/24/left-right-hate-the-truth-election-2016/

The Moral of the Story and President Trump’s “Divine Mandate”

The incredible victory of President-elect Donald Trump on November 8th, 2016 signaled the “final option” for the United States of America to once again align itself with the Lordship of Jesus Christ and remove the policies and Supreme Court decisions that have distanced the Lord and removed His protective, provisional blessing over the United States – a Divine distancing beginning in the tumultuous decade of the 1960’s that continues to this present day.

The Lord has blessed President-elect Trump with a God-fearing Vice President in Mike Pence and the Lord has also blessed President-Trump with a Republican controlled House and Senate with the opportunity to appoint perhaps three conservative-Constitutional Orginalists to the Supreme Court.  If President Trump truly desires to “Make America Great Again,” it is imperative that he take the initiative and capitalize on the opportunity to put into action the necessary steps to repeal…

  1. Roe v. Wade (1973) Federal Government supported infanticide supported by Roe v. Wade (1973) – an unconstitutional Supreme Court embarrassment and shame which is, thus far, a major contributing factor undergirding the torture, burning to death, mutilation, dismemberment, murder, of 59-million American children via the Satanically inspired procedure known as abortion.  The United States Supreme Court has, forever, shamed and defiled itself by its denial of Due Process Protections for the unborn child as guaranteed them in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to our United States Constitution!  Our God has clearly warned that He hates the hands that shed innocent blood and the unconscionable murder of our children is definitive and indicative of a people whose conscience has been seared!  Proverbs 6:16-19

  1. Obergefell v. Hodges, (2015) The legitimizing through law to protect sexual perversity in the form of “same-sex marriage” which is directly responsible for undermining the sociological foundation necessary for the continuation, the health and welfare, of the United States i.e. the Biblical Family Unit e.g. a father (male) and a mother (female) joined in marriage and subsequently procreating and raising/rearing their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.  The vile and destructive behavior of Homosexuality and Lesbianism is abhorrent to our Lord and a shame and embarrassment to any Nation whose citizens cherish honor, decency, respect, morality and integrity.  Rest assured in the Lord’s warning: rampant homosexual behavior in a society is a tell-tale sign of God having lifted his hand of blessing from a Nation.  Romans 1:16-32

lgbtq-nation

It is imperative that the Holy Bible be introduced once again into our public school curriculum and that prayer in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ also become part of the daily activities in public education.  Greater restrictions must be placed on the immoral filth emanating from Hollywood and other media sources.  Also, homosexuality, lesbianism, transgendered – queer applicants seeking service in the United States Military must be rejected and our military returned to an honorable, respectable, healthy, moral and ethical representative of the United States of America.  America’s sociological experiment with “free love,” sexual immorality, Moral Relativism, Socialism-Communism, has failed pathetically and has tragically jeopardized the health and welfare of our Nation. It’s time for real change – it’s time that Jesus Christ be welcomed and worshiped as the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings with preeminence  over all of America!

A Warning to America and President Trump

If President Trump fails to right these immoral, unconstitutional, wrongs forced upon the American Citizen and if President Trump does not identify the “enemy within” our borders i.e. the Socialist-Democratic Party and take affirmative steps to end its anti-American, Socialist, destructive, moral-less agenda, it is possible that the United States will enjoy a period of economic growth and a facade of domestic and international peace, but America’s economy will ultimately collapse and America will literally implode morally, ethically, monetarily and militarily – much like ancient Rome and we will have no one to blame but ourselves.  President Trump, you’ve been provided with a “divine mandate” and a unique opportunity to truly “Make America Great Again” – don’t fail in your obligation to right the sinking ship of the United States of America!  You are the last bastion of hope for a Godly, prosperous, America!

“The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.”  Proverbs 21:1

The Left-Socialist-Democrat (Our Enemy Within)

No one will listen and no one will acknowledge our “enemy within!”

Over the previous six-months we’ve learned a lot about the Socialist – Liberal – Democrat ideology and the Biased Liberal News Media with CNN taking front-and-center representing the very definition of a Socialist Flag Bearer. In conjunction with CNN’s collusion with the DNC and secretly providing Hillary with debate questions, now, most recently, their joking about Mr. Trump’s plane crashing, take a look at what CNN considers “news worthy” from these headlines I received one-year ago today as a Facebook one-year “memory.”

No one believes or listens to this old retired cop and former US Marine…but I warn you…America can have jobs for every household, secure borders, low taxes and a strong military…but if we continue to permit the Socialist-Left-Democrat, the “enemy within,” to influence our Federal Government, our courts and corrupt the hearts and minds of our youth via our educational institutions in conjunction with the perversion-promulgating Hollywood-media, America will continue to implode as a result of its immorality and its defiance to the edicts of the Lord Jesus Christ. Do not be deceived about this most important fact and know this, America will never be “Great Again” without the Lordship of Christ!!!

Flag Salute Controversy

Observation and comment by Rickey D. Holtsclaw, Houston PD/Retired…

When a young mind is inundated with Liberal lies and perversion at home, via the liberal media and in the classroom, how can we expect him or her to react any differently? This is a young, ignorant, impressionable kid…he is simply “modeling” those “significant others” in his life…

I know, you don’t want to hear this…but know that Mr. Trump, God bless him, is simply the proverbial finger in a faltering dike that is crumbling from the tide-waters of rampant, perverse, destructive, Liberal-Democrat-Socialist ideological agendas…it is young men and women, like this young man, who will take that agenda into the next generation of leadership.

Hillary and the radical Left actually won the popular vote this election cycle – do you think those numbers of vile anti-American Socialist-Democrats will decrease as Conservative, God fearing, “Deplorable,” middle-class Americans die-off over the next few decades? Is it not blatantly obvious where our Nation is headed? Without a direct intervention by Jesus Christ…we’re no better off than ancient Rome and our fall will be just as dramatic and certain!

Response to EPA Letter – Vehicular NOISE – Jurisdictional Responsibility – Obfuscation – Solutions?

To: Mr. James B. DeMocker, Director –  Office of Air Policy and Program Support

November 25, 2016

Dear Mr. DeMocker,

Thank you for your response to my letter requesting intercession from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) concerning the out of control vehicular NOISE problems plaguing the roadways, Interstates and communities of the United States.  Unfortunately, your response was very disappointing and unsatisfactory for the following reasons.

  1. You acknowledge the obfuscation of the EPA by reiterating the fact that the responsibility for vehicular noise control was delegated to the States and local governments along with the de-funding of ONAC in 1981.  Mr. DeMocker, Sir, with all due respect, this is not a satisfactory answer or solution to the fact that our States and local governments and their law enforcement entities are failing and have been failing to intercede on behalf of the vehicular noise beleaguered citizenry for the past thirty-years. Please understand this: Our states and local law enforcement refuse to intercede on behalf of the suffering vehicular noise beleaguered citizenry! Our law enforcement community has become so entangled and compromised by their unethical participation in the illegal conduct in conjunction with our local elected leadership prostituting themselves with the Loud Motorcycle Cult[ure] at biker rallies for profit that it is absolutely mandatory the EPA and the US Congress provide a “National Uniformity of Treatment.” The noise beleaguered citizen is begging and pleading for your assistance! If not the EPA, to whom do we turn for intercession if our states and local governments refuse to protect us?
  2. You acknowledge the admirable enforcement endeavors of the EPA relevant to the recent civil action against Harley Davidson Motor Company pertaining to the Clean Air Act and the air pollution caused by Harley’s Screaming Eagle Super-Tuner devices.  What you fail to acknowledge is the fact that the Noise Control Act and the Code of Federal Regulations, not the Clean Air Act, are the actual initiators of this violation, the subsequent civil action and enforcement initiative.
  3. Mr. DeMocker, you emphasize the fact that the EPA v. Harley civil action focused not on noise emissions but on the emissions of “hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides.”  You then emphasize the injurious physiological ramifications of these pollutants which have been documented as causative factors in cases of “asthma attacks, respiratory illnesses (redundant), and premature death.” Mr. DeMocker, what you have failed to acknowledge is the well documented physiological injurious effects of unregulated environmental noise, with an emphasis on vehicular noise as it relates to human physiology.  Physiological injury such as those articulated on the EPA Website which includes the statement… Noise pollution adversely affects the lives of millions of people.  Studies have shown that there are direct links between noise and health.  Problems related to noise include stress related illnesses, high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption, and lost productivity.  Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the most common and often discussed health effect, but research has shown that exposure to constant or high levels of noise can cause countless adverse health affects.” “The EPA or a designated Federal agency regulates noise sources, such as rail and motor carriers, low noise emission products, construction equipment, transport equipment, trucks, motorcycles, and the labeling of hearing protection devices.” 

With all due respect Mr. DeMocker, the EPA is gagging at a gnat (air pollution and silly, non-substantiated, global warming concerns) while swallowing a camel (noise pollution), a most undeniable and significant in-your-face/ear vehicular noise pollution problem that cannot be ignored…a vehicular noise pollution problem that destroys the daily quality of life for many millions of American citizens and needlessly endangers their health and welfare according to the United States Congress…

42 U.S. Code § 4901 – Congressional findings and statement of policy

(a) The Congress finds—

(1) that inadequately controlled noise presents a growing danger to the health and welfare of the Nation’s population, particularly in urban areas;

(2) that the major sources of noise include transportation vehicles and equipment, machinery, appliances, and other products in commerce; and

(3) that, while primary responsibility for control of noise rests with State and local governments, Federal action is essential to deal with major noise sources in commerce control of which require national uniformity of treatment.

(b) The Congress declares that it is the policy of the United States to promote an environment for all Americans free from noise that jeopardizes their health or welfare. To that end, it is the purpose of this chapter to establish a means for effective coordination of Federal research and activities in noise control, to authorize the establishment of Federal noise emission standards for products distributed in commerce, and to provide information to the public respecting the noise emission and noise reduction characteristics of such products.

Mr. DeMocker, it is imperative that the EPA stop the obfuscation and stop the excuses for failing the vehicular noise beleaguered citizenry.  Again, our state and local governments care absolutely nothing for the vehicular noise beleaguered citizenry and as retired 31-year police veteran, I can substantiate that fact!

Also, the EPA’s failure to control and regulate the criminal conspiratorial marketing strategies of the motorcycle aftermarket industry is nothing less than pure negligence on the part of an Agency tasked with the responsibility of protecting and defending the rights of the American citizen relevant to environmental issues. Mr. DeMocker you defer culpability for non-enforcement to our states and local governments, but I ask you Sir, what Agency actually has jurisdiction and authority and is responsible for regulating an industry that criminally conspires to market illegal products which negatively affect the environment, the health and welfare and the quality of life of the American citizen – illegal products  that are distributed on a Nationwide basis, across State lines, involving manufacturing, labeling, distributing, retailing, installation, operation?

The EPA’s myopic obsession with air pollution has resulted in a complete disregard for that two-year old child and her fatigued mom who reside in a poorly constructed 2nd-floor apartment overlooking a very busy intersection in Anywhere, USA.  Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, that child and her mom are bombarded by the Loud Motorcycle Cult[ure] (as well as the illegally Loud Auto and Truck Cult[ure]) comprising some 60% to 80% of the motorcycling population.  These motorcycle noise bullies have opted to ignore Federal and State law by installing a NOT FOR ROAD USE – COMPETITION – CLOSED COURSE aftermarket exhaust on their motorcycle emitting four-to-eight-times (logarithmic scale) the legal “total” “safe” motorcycle noise emissions of 80 dB(A) – noise emissions that are audible for over one-mile under hard acceleration, yet the EPA obfuscates and denies any responsibility while local and state law enforcement sip their coffee and look the other way; this, while the before mentioned child and her mom suffer!  Why?

As a retired 31-year veteran of the Houston Police Department and as a concerned American citizen, I am very ashamed of the United States Environmental Protection Agency for its failure to perform its duties and responsibilities relevant to illegally equipped, dangerously loud, intrusive, motorcycles, automobiles and trucks!

LEFT – RIGHT – HATE & THE TRUTH (ELECTION 2016)

THE UGLY ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM OF POLITICAL DISCOURSE


“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

Donald Trump ignores it – The News Media, including Fox News, ignores it – Liberals/Democrats/Socialists ignore it – Conservatives ignore it…

What is truly the “CHASM” that divides Conservatives and Liberals, Republicans and Democrats, the Christian Right and the Atheist/the Agnostic/the Left? Why does the Left possess such a fervent hatred and loathing for the Right and President-elect Trump? Is it in response to Mr. Trump’s positioning on immigration, taxes, health care, education, trade?

Though these political issues are important to both sides of the Isle, they are NOT the reasons for our fractured Nation that is festering with hatred, anger, resentment, disgust, anguish…No Sir/No Ma’am!

nation divided

This huge, ugly “elephant in the room” is an ideological chasm – that great divide existing between those who believe in Biblical morality, ethics, the rule of law, the Constitution with a foundation emanating from faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God as provided us in the Canonized Bible – V. – those who worship at the throne/ideology of “Moral Relativism” e.g. you do your thing and I’ll do mine, you have no “right” to judge me and I have no “right” to judge you – every man and every woman is “free” to do that which is “right” in their own eyes – we are free to pursue our lusts and our passions i.e. hedonism and narcissism; To suggest otherwise is “racist,” bigoted, hateful, intolerant, misogynistic, homophobic. Moral Relativism declares that there are no earthly or eternal consequences for “personal” choices and I am free to do with my body as I please; after all, eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die…if it feels good, do it!

Know this…

  • The Democratic Party is the Party of Death…
  • The Democratic Party is the Party of Sexual Perversion…
  • The Democratic Party is the Party of Socialism and radically espouses an Anti-American Agenda…
  • The Democratic Party is a Party of racism, hatred, division, exclusion and entitlement…

satans-lie

Understand this: From what I can surmise from the statistical data concerning the 2016 Presidential election, Evangelicals (some 81%?) were one of, if not the largest voting block that ushered Mr. Trump to victory. With that said, the calls and pleas for unity in America, a “coming together” and bridging the before mentioned chasm will NOT manifest as long as…

1) Federal Government supported infanticide continues under the auspices of Roe v. Wade (1973) – an unconstitutional Supreme Court embarrassment and shame which is, thus far, a major contributing factor undergirding the torture, burning to death, mutilation, dismemberment, murder of 59-million American children via the Satanically inspired procedure known as abortion.  The United States Supreme Court has, forever, shamed and defiled itself by its denial of Due Process for the unborn child as guaranteed them in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to our United States Constitution!  Our God has clearly warned that He hates the hands that shed innocent blood!  Proverbs 6:16-19

2) The Federal Government continues in its support, legitimizing through law, to protect sexual perversity in the form of same-sex marriage which is directly responsible for undermining the sociological foundation necessary for the continuation, the health and welfare, of the United States i.e. the Biblical Family Unit e.g. a father (male) and a mother (female) joined in marriage and subsequently procreating and raising/rearing their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.  The perverse and immoral conduct of Homosexuality and Lesbianism is abhorrent to our Lord and rampant homosexual behavior in a society is a tell-tale sign of God having lifted his hand of blessing from a Nation.  Romans 1:16-32

3) Christians in America are nauseatingly sick and tired of having the LGBTQ – diversity/perversion forced down our throat via Democratic-Liberal-Socialist inspired Federal Government policies – we’re sick and tired of the Liberal agenda mandating racial quotas, Affirmative Action mandates (reverse-discrimination), sexual education in our public schools that include homosexual/lesbian/transgendered/queer sensitivity and “understanding” training. Christians in America are sick and tired of the Federal Government, under Democratic Leadership, spitting in the face of our Lord Jesus Christ and defecating on the word of God.

Every single one of you that have supported Donald Trump, every single person who names the Name of Jesus Christ who is either too ashamed or too fearful to talk about this undeniable ugly elephant walking around the room of political debate and discourse should be ashamed of yourself…especially our pathetically liberal, pacifist, Socialist inspired media!

lgbtq-nationmoney-and-your-soul

Those of us who profess a love and adoration and respect for the Lord Jesus Christ will NEVER compromise on His Word and His Edicts; therefore, do not be unwise or lack discernment in thinking that healing and unity will exist between Evangelicals and the perversion promulgated by the Left-Democrat-Socialist. Rest assured that as long as the ungodly, satanic polices, as enumerated above, are on the table of public and political discourse, there will be no true healing or unity in America.

Response to a contributor’s “comment” for clarification:

Far too many Conservative and Christian voters fail to comprehend the fact that a majority of the Left opposes Donald Trump not for his positioning on trade, borders, taxes and jobs, but on ideological differences that the Left perceives as threatening their worship of – and – obsessive-compulsive need for the tenets espoused by Moral Relativism.

dont-feel-guilty

The Left, under Clinton and Obama, had finally achieved some success in shifting the prevailing cultural ideology away from Conservatism to a more cultural relativistic ideology that acknowledged their concept of personal freedom, diversity, inclusion and expression; thus, the election of Mr. Trump has literally destroyed their “comfort zone” and they fear, more than anything relevant to political campaign promises, a restriction on their perceived freedom to engage in sexual perversion and a lifestyle that runs completely contrary to Conservative/Biblical/family oriented values; thus, the horror, the tantrums, the retaliation against authority and the rule of law!

satan-and-jesus

Far too many on the Right are willing to meet the Left in the middle and compromise on these personal ideological issues, but those who truly love and adore the Lord Jesus Christ will not compromise on Holy Scripture, the sanctity of life and marriage/family; therefore, the chasm will continue and only widen as the Left pushes back against Christian values…wars have been waged over such ideological differences!

george-washington-and-the-bible

And finally, let’s not forget and let us remind the racial minority Democrat that they are supporting the Party of Jim Crow and the Party that mocked the noble intent of the Welfare Act (Johnson’s Great Society) in 1964 where President Johnson is quoted as saying something to the effect, “We will have those Niggers voting Democrat for 200 years.”  Also, let’s not forget the heart of the Democrat’s Hero, Hillary Clinton, when she said…

democratic-stupiditycivil-war-and-racism

Also, let us remind the protesting and rioting Left when they compare Mr. Trump to a Fascist or a modern day Hitler…

hitlersocialist-1024x535

To those who love and adore our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, let us not grow weary in doing good and standing for righteousness for it is our duty to our Lord and an obligation to our posterity.

galatians-6-9

“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.  Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.  And this is the verdict: The Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil.”  John 3:17-19 (NASB)

Loud Biker’s “Feelings” are “Hurt” by Profiling Mommy – Comment by C-CALM

Article: This “Dirty” Biker Had The Perfect Response To This Angry Mom

cassandra Cassandra Lewis

Excerpt: “When a mom pulled her young daughter away from this friendly biker, his feelings were deeply hurt. So he decided to take to Facebook and clarify a few things about “dirty” bikers.”


Comment to article by Rick Holtsclaw, Concerned Citizens Against Loud Motorcycles – FB, YouTube and WordPress

If you dress like a thug, talk like a thug, ride like a thug, act like a thug…the concerned “Mom” has every right to dissuade her child from interacting with the “biker dude.” I have policed the “Biker Cult[ure]” for years, cited and arrested probably more than most officers in the United States – I know the personality-type, the “attitude,” the narcissistic/hedonistic mentality… First, let’s make the differentiation between a “biker” and a “motorcyclist.”

I’ve owned, operated, some 31 motorcycles since age 12 and have ridden professionally for years…I know bikers and I know motorcyclists – there is a stark difference between the two.

What are the attributes of a “Motorcyclist?”

1) Motorcyclists respect the general public and the environment. Motorcyclists don’t modify their motorcycles to assault the general public with illegal noise emissions or vomit excessive exhaust particulates into our atmosphere.

2) Motorcyclists ride defensively, dress appropriately and don’t naively rely on irrelevant extraneous factors for safety e.g. exhaust NOISE.

3) Motorcyclists respect the sport of motorcycling and ride and act in a manner that garners respect from the motoring public and ensures that the sport will continue unabated by harsh regulations for years to come.

The “Biker Cult[ure]” on the other hand…

1) Is comprised of immature, arrogant, irresponsible, narcissistic, hedonistic, individuals who use their motorcycle as an extension of their morally relativistic, selfish personality-type/ideology to bully the general public.

if it feels good do it biker creed

2) Sixty-to-eighty-percent of the “Biker Cult[ure]” i.e. the Loud Biker Cult[ure], removes their legal, US EPA approved, quiet, clean, factory-installed muffler and replaces it with a NOT FOR ROAD USE, Competition Only, Closed Course racing exhaust for hedonistic reasons – to make illegal NOISE as they endeavor to gratify their obsessive-compulsive need for attention and obedience to the Group Dynamic.

EPA muffler label

V.

epa closed course label on muffler
Many of the NOT FOR ROAD USE aftermarket exhausts are not labeled at all – the “entitled” manufacturers thumb their defiant nose at the Code of Federal Regulations due to a lack of Federal and State regulatory control!

3) The motorcycles operated by the Loud Biker Cult[ure] emit between four-to-eight-times the legal “total” motorcycle noise emissions of 80 dB(A) as mandated/restricted by the US EPA for the safety of the general public exposed to motorcycle noise emissions on a daily basis (dB differentials measured on a logarithmic scale).

dscn1691

4) The Loud Biker Cult[ure], as a result of their immature personality, desire to intimidate the general public and garner/force/bully attention to themselves by dressing like “One-Percenters” yet most are really nothing more than vulgar want-a-bee’s.

5) I ask you, what kind of “man” modifies a motor vehicle to make egregious, intrusive, dangerous NOISE levels in violation of Federal and State law, then proceeds out onto a public roadway and uses that illegal exhaust NOISE to assault our children, our elderly, the handicapped, our families – what kind of a “man” would do such a thing? This is NOT the behavior of a man, a responsible father, a police officer, a patriot, a Christian…this is the behavior of a selfish, entitled, THUG!

loud biker angry

Yes, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck….Loud Biker Dude—don’t like the disrespect? Well, you have NO ONE to blame but yourself!!! The family that warned their child to distance herself from you was doing the right thing!

Weaverville, North Carolina Police Department: Ignoring Illegal Straight Pipes (See Article from Noise Free America Following Narrative from C-CALM)

The relevant article from Noise Free America is attached below, but first, please allow Concerned Citizens Against Loud Motorcycles (C-CALM) to comment on the stark illegality of this conduct and the culpability of Weaverville’s Mayor, City Council and Police Chief.  Note that North Carolina’s State Motor Vehicle Muffler law requires that every motor vehicle operated on the public roadways of that State be equipped with the quiet factory-installed muffler.

NORTH CAROLINA

  • 20-128. Exhaust system and emissions control devices.

(a) No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a highway unless such motor vehicle is equipped with a muffler, or other exhaust system of the type installed at the time of manufacture, in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise, annoying smoke and smoke screens.

(b) It shall be unlawful to use a “muffler cut-out” on any motor vehicle upon a highway.

(c) No motor vehicle registered in this State that was manufactured after model year 1967 shall be operated in this State unless it is equipped with emissions control devices that were installed on the vehicle at the time the vehicle was manufactured and these devices are properly connected.


Now, please note the following protections provided by the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution relevant to equal protection of the laws and Title 42 U.S. Code § 1983.

 Fourteenth Amendment

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Title 42 U.S. Code § 1983

“Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress…” 


Questions for Weaverville’s City Administration: Mayor Dottie Sherrill, Vice-Mayor John Penley, Council Members: Doug Dearth, Doug Jackson, Patrick Fitzsimmons, Andre Nagle and Police Chief Greg Stephens…

  1. Do municipal officials, acting under the color of law, while involved in a non-governmental/proprietary function, in the interest of profit for their municipality’s coffer and/or a charity event, possess the Constitutional authority to ignore the well-established rule of law, a vehicular muffler law enacted by Federal and State legislative authorities specifically for the protection of the health and welfare/the quality-of-life of the citizenry, then, to ensure an increased profit margin, invite large numbers of violations of that law into their jurisdiction and conspire to enact a policy or custom of nonfeasance manifesting in misfeasance and ultimately malfeasance, thereby providing absolutely no proactive protection, reactive protection, or any form of control over the movement or the intrusive and physiologically injurious manifestations associated with these numerous violations?

“Even if an activity can be characterized as an integral part of police protection, thereby falling within the police protection exemption, a government entity is still subject to liability if the police protection activity arises out of the negligent implementation of government policy.” Alvarado v. City of Brownsville, 865 S.W.2d 148 (Tex. App.—Corpus Christi 1993)

Local governing bodies, therefore, can be sued directly under § 1983 for monetary, declaratory, or injunctive relief where the action that is alleged to be unconstitutional implements or executes a policy statement, ordinance, regulation, or decision officially adopted and promulgated by that body’s officers. Moreover, although the touchstone of the § 1983 action against a government body is an allegation that official policy is responsible for a deprivation of rights protected by the Constitution, local governments, by the very terms of the statute, may be sued for constitutional deprivations visited pursuant to governmental custom even though such a custom has not received formal approval through the body’s official decision making channels. Monell v. Dep’t of Soc. Servs., 436 U.S. 658, 98 S. Ct. 2018 (1978)

“All the officers of the government, from the highest to the lowest, are creatures of the law, and are bound to obey it. It is the only supreme power in our system of government, and every man who, by accepting office, participates in its functions, is only the more strongly bound to submit to that supremacy, and to observe the limitations which it imposes upon the exercise of the authority which it gives.”” La. v. Jumel, 107 U.S. 711, 2 S. Ct. 128 (1882) 

Rather, to establish municipal liability under § 1983, a plaintiff must demonstrate: (i) that an officer committed an underlying constitutional violation; (ii) that a municipal policy or custom exists; and (iii) that there is a direct causal link between the policy or custom, and the injury alleged.”  Griego v. City of Albuquerque, 100 F. Supp. 3d 1192 (D.N.M. 2015)

  1. Do municipal officials have a responsibility to obey the law and to refrain from advocating, participating in, initiating violations of the law that ultimately manifest in injury and subsequent violations of Constitutional protections?

“All the officers of the government, from the highest to the lowest, are creatures of the law, and are bound to obey it. It is the only supreme power in our system of government, and every man who, by accepting office, participates in its functions, is only the more strongly bound to submit to that supremacy, and to observe the limitations which it imposes upon the exercise of the authority which it gives.”” La. v. Jumel, 107 U.S. 711, 2 S. Ct. 128 (1882)

 “In a just society those who govern, as well as those who are governed, must obey the law.” United States v. Leon, 468 U.S. 897, 104 S. Ct. 3405 (1984)

  1. Do the Citizens of Weaverville, North Carolina, as Citizens of the United States, have an expectation of “protection” from the representative agents of that State encumbered with the responsibility of enforcing the laws of said State resulting from a civil-reciprocal-contract existing between the Sovereign and the Servant?
  2. Does the police protection exemption exist when a failure to protect or provide control over rampant antisocial conduct is the resultant of a government policy or custom that ultimately manifests in violations of Constitutional protections, a violation of 42 U.S.C.S. § 1983?

“Even if an activity can be characterized as an integral part of police protection, thereby falling within the police protection exemption, a government entity is still subject to liability if the police protection activity arises out of the negligent implementation of government policy.”  Alvarado v. City of Brownsville, 865 S.W.2d 148 (Tex. App.—Corpus Christi 1993)

“Police action is subject to the Equal Protection Clause and 42 U.S.C.S. § 1983 whether in the form of commission of violative acts or omission to perform required acts pursuant to the police officer’s duty to protect.”  Parkhurst v. Tabor, 569 F.3d 861 (8th Cir. 2009)

One final thought Mayor Sherrill: There is absolutely NOTHING that transpires at a motorcycle rally having been attended by an overwhelming number of illegally equipped, illegally LOUD motorcycles that could not have just as effectively taken place with the motorcyclists at the event atop legal, quiet, motorcycles with the factory-installed, US EPA approved muffler affixed to their motorcycles.  Why must you permit illegally equipped, illegally LOUD motorcycles to attend these events when you know, from experiential knowledge, that these egregiously LOUD motorcycles are in violation of State Law and the dangerous and intrusive noise emissions are a direct threat to the health and welfare and the quality of life of the Citizens of Weaverville and every Citizen in those Municipalities positioned on the routes providing access to and from these motorcycle rallies?

Weaverville, North Carolina Police Department: Ignoring Illegal Straight Pipes

    

Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet

Chapel Hill: The Weaverville, North Carolina police department has won this month’s Noisy Dozen award from Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet for participating in a motorcycle ride in which many of the participants had illegal straight pipes.

Weaverville is a small town in western North Carolina; it is part of the Asheville metropolitan area.

On October 8, 2016, the Weaverville police department conducted a “Cops for Kids Toy Drive, which included a motorcycle ride. The Weaverville police department’s own web site contains a photo gallery showing many motorcycles equipped with straight pipes. Such equipment is in clear violation of the state muffler law, which requires motorcycles to have exhaust systems “of the type installed at the time of manufacture” (GS 20-128-a).

The presence of motorcycles with illegal straight pipes at this event raises several questions:

  • Does the Weaverville police department enforce the city’s motor vehicle noise ordinance?
  • Does the Weaverville police department enforce the state muffler law?

Larry Deal, a member of Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet, commented that “I’ll bet the Weaverville police department has never ticketed any bikers for violating either the town’s noise ordinance or state law, especially any bikers who violate those laws while participating in Cops for Kids Toy Drives.”

“Although the Cops for Kids Toy Drive is for a worthy cause,” said Deal, “and the Weaverville police department’s charity work is commendable, the ‘charity’ angle employed in many group motorcycle rides tends to provide a blanket of protection for illegal motorcycle noise.”

Deal noted that “law enforcement often looks the other way and effectively grants those bikers an exemption to noise ordinances and the state muffler law. Instead, the police should be strongly enforcing those laws–no matter what. The police should issue citations whenever they encounter motorcycles which are emitting prohibited and obviously ‘excessive or unusual noise’ or are equipped with improper mufflers ‘not of the type installed the time of manufacture.’ This is required by North Carolina’s state muffler law.”

Ted Rueter, director of Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet, commented that “the police need to learn how to enforce the state muffler law and start enforcing it aggressively. The same applies to the state DMV, which oversees the state motor vehicle inspections.”

According to Rueter, “Conducting or sponsoring group motorcycle rides is not the primary duty of the police. The police should not turn a deaf ear when motorcyclists violate the state muffler law right under their noses. Our police, sheriff’s departments, and the state Highway Patrol should enforce the state motor vehicle code. GS 20-128 (a) prohibits removing or altering motorcycle exhaust systems and causing additional noise. This law is rarely enforced. The result? A state filled with illegal motorcycle noise.”

Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet is a national citizens’ organization opposed to noise pollution. Past “winners” of the Noisy Dozen award include the North Carolina state legislatureAppleton, Wisconsin; and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
