TWIC OPPOSITION REVIEW OF DHS/USCG NMSAC MEETING TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 2011

Wednesday, April 13, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

NRA, SAF, GOA, JPFO, VCDL, SAS, OTHERS WERE MIA FOR THE 3RD TIME IN A ROW TO DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF AMERICAN MERCHANT SEAMEN AT DHS/USCG ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETINGS.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard held their National Maritime Security Advisory Committee (NMSAC) meeting, hosted by the American Bureau of Shipping in Roslyn, Virginia, Tuesday, April 12, 2011 to discuss various items of maritime interests such as America’s Waterway Watch Program, Transportation Worker’s Identification Credential (TWIC) Card Program, Coast Guard port assistance program, seamen’s shoreside access from vessels docked at marine terminals, and other topics. One topic on their agenda was the Second Amendment rights of American merchant seamen which I had requested to be placed on their agenda at their January meeting.
 
I gave the NRA and all the other Second Amendment advocacy groups their chance to show up at the DHS/USCG Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC) April 16-17, 2009 meeting and the DHS/USCG National Maritime Security Advisory Committee meeting in January and April 12, 2011 meetings. Not a one showed up. That’s three strikes against Second Amendment advocacy groups. I guess I can safely stake my claim to being the pioneering patriot for the restoration of Second Amendment and Ninth Amendment rights of American Merchant seamen in interstate travel, i.e., National Open Carry Handgun in the United States and defensive firearms aboard ship to defend against pirates on the high seas (stored in a gun safe or secure locker in accordance with maritime law).
 
CULTURAL NEUROSCIENCE OF THE BRAIN AND HUMAN BEHAVIOR
Cultural neuroscienc advances to study of Groupthink: the behavior of groups of people.

DIAGRAM OF A NEURON CELL OF THE BRAIN
  
(1) Because Mr. John Schwartz of TSA had a prior committment to attend another meeting that afternoon the Capt. Jeff Monroe, NMSAC Chair allowed Mr. Schwartz to address the Committee that morning. Obviously Mr. Schawartz advocated moving the TWIC Program forward. He used a disturbingly odd cliché, not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. The implication here is even with all the problems infesting the TWIC Program that John A.C. Cartner, co-author with Richard P. Fiske, and Tara L. Leiter, on the book, The International Law of the Shipmaster, recently published a commentary titled, [TWIC] Identity Card is US Maritime Hobgoblin, Mr. Schwartz still saw fit to push the TWIC Program even during a national budget crisis. Foolhardy I say!
 
(2) That afternoon as the committee was speeding through its agenda ahead of schedule they moved my scheduledk speaking time from Wednesday to that early afternoon. I gave a well rounded philosophical/legal/regulatory lecture tying TWIC, Second Amendment rights of American seamen, MMD, MMC, National Drivers Record, CDL for truckdrivers, Federal Preemption of State and Local laws interferening with or prohibiting the Second Amendment Ninth Amendment right to Open Carry personal firearms in interstate travel as U.S. citizen under the Fourteenth Amendment, Djibouti Code of Conduct as a failure to suppress piracy, and so much more. In closing I made a SHOCKING recommendation to ABOLISH THE TWIC PROGRAM on the basis the it is a fraud as explained by John A.C. Cartner’s commentary. I also recommended that restoration of the Second Amendment rights of merchant seamen is in the best interest of maritime security.
 
Now because the federal judges who have dismissed my civil complaints for Second Amendment of U.S. merchant seamen from 2002 to 2010, even when the merits of my case in 2010 was vindicated by the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Coast Guard in 2009 by the State Department’s demarché seeking the laws of every port in maritime nations concerning armed commercial merchant vessels for defensive purposes against pirates on the high seas. When the State Department collects all this information the Statement will have the foundation for a future maritime treaty for armed commercial merchant vessels to defend against pirates. I began looking a federal judges from a judicial culture perspective. I Googled catch phrases, “judicial culture” “gun culture” “anti-gun culture” and countless of combinations of catch phrases until my search drifted into the study of “human behavior” and the brain.
 
That was my EUREKA! moment. My “Aha!” moment. CULTURAL NEUROSCIENCE is the new field to study of behavioral science (past 10 or 20 years) for pyschiatrists, psyhologists, and socologists.
My Google search first lead me to Neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to alter its neurological pathways over time whether the brain was injured or not. Further searches lead me a new category of behavioral science: CULTURAL NEUROSCIENCE. From a dozen studies and reports I found on the Internet I am developing a new theory on the condition of the brain of Government bureaucrats and lobbyists becoming hardwired to ignore the rights of the American people. The theory applies to any significant culture any where on the face of this Earth.
 
Fertile ground here for civil cases for Constitutional rights violations under 46 U.S.C. § 1983, and maybe even the RICO Act. Imagine a “hardwired” brain of Government officials predisposed to violating constitutional rights of the American people can be proven in a federal court. Neuroplasticity as a condition of mind and libel for constitutional rights violations. This is an interesting legal theory that needs more research.
 
(3) My EUREAKA! moment for Cultural Neuroscience. I made an intuitive discovery in the behavior not only of Mr. Schwartz but the Committee members themselves and those in attendance through my recent but on ongoing study in Cultural Neuroscience.
 
As Mr. Schwartz of TSA turned to leave the meeting I stepped forward, to his noticing, and handed him a copy of John A.C. Cartner’s commentary telling this commentary is in oppostion to the TWIC Program. He looked at me in a surprised smile and admitted that he did not know there was any opposition to the TWIC Program at all. That is a SHOCKING ADMISSION for a Government bureaucrat that was overheard by Earl Agron, VP of Security kand Environment, APL Limited as he looked at me from his committee chair close by me and admitted that he, Earl Agron, was amazed that no one else standing in opposition to the TWIC Program.
 
IF THE TWIC PROGRAM IS ABOLISHED/CANCELLED I WILL HAVE PLAYED MY PART, MY ROLE IN THE COMMON DEFENCE* OF THIS COUNTRY’S BUDGET CRISIS, THE THEME OF THIS BLOG FOR ALL THINGS RELATED TO THE COMMON DEFENCE, BUT WILL THE COMMITTEE PRESS ON TO ADVANCE THE TWIC PROGRAM AGAINST ALL COMMON SENSE FOR FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY?
 
*Defence is the original spelling in the Constitution. I use that spelling in the sense that Common Defence means the defence of this country by the We the People of the United States. The Common Defence as opposed to the National Defense through the Armed Forces. That means, in part, National Open Carry Handgun, by law abiding citizens to defend against instantaneous personalized crime by the criminal element of society as the legal norm and the social norm it once was at the time of the ratification of the Bill of Rights as being the constitutional norm that it still is even though it may not be the social norm or the legal norm today.
