Yazdan Bakhsh’s Letter Read at Protecting Civil Discourse Press Conference March 25, 2017

Yazdan Bakhsh is a naturalized US Citizen who was born in Afghanistan, immigrated to Iran, then Syria, then to Lebanon, until their Civil War.  He eventually made his home in North Oaks MN.  He has his own business, and he has written a book called, “You’ll be my Son Joe: A story of Courage and Circumstance

Here is a video of his journey to America beginning in Afghanistan.  He is an immigrant success story.


Here is Yazdan Bakhsh’s letter from the Protection Civil Discourse Press Conference on March 25, 2017.  He had a 9 point statement that questioned Ramsey County Attorney John Choi’s decision to let the ANTIFA Thugs aka #Fascist6 be prosecuted by the St Paul City Attorney Samuel J Clark.  Mr Bakhsh talked about how he came to this country as well.


  1. In Afghanistan:  If we worked we ate, if we didn’t work we died.
  2. I went through many struggles to come to America where people are free.
  3. I was so proud when I got my citizenship; I ran down the streets of St. Paul with an American Flag.
  4. But now I see America being changed.  People who do not understand true freedom & want to change it.
  5. Today our freedoms are taken from us — little by little.
  6. When our peaceful support of Donald Trump was disrupted by the six rioters, it brought back memories to me of Lebanese Civil War, which I was in.
  7. Dragging their feet, John Choi’s office sent the decision to charge the six rioters, to the city attorney’s office.
  8. It was criminal that the six felons came to disrupt the March 4th peaceful rally in support of President Trump.  Wearing masks, they sprayed people with mace, smoke bombs, and were loud and disruptive.  At the very least they should be charged with a felony.
  9. Fellow Americans, we need to defend our rights and freedoms; John Choi and the city attorney need to do the same.  They need to realize that we have rights too.

Happy Varfrudagen (sounds like Vaffeldagen or Waffle Day) March 25th

Waffle Day is a tradition that is celebrated in Sweden, and to a lesser extent elsewhere, on March 25.  Waffles are usually eaten on this day. The name comes from Vårfrudagen (“Our Lady’s Day“), which in vernacular Swedish sounds almost like Våffeldagen (waffle day).

Our Lady’s Day is celebrated on March 25 (nine months before Christmas), the Christian holiday of Annunciation.  It is the day that the Virgin Mary found out that she was to be Jesus’ mother.  The Archangel Gabriel told her this.  We believe that Jesus was not born in December due to a number of factors like how the shepherds were herding their flock, and that there was no mention of Hanukkah, which had been practiced for about 150 years or so.  Until the actual day is determined we err on the day as being December 25 as Jesus’ birthday, and the Immaculate Conception on March 25th.

Here is the American Swedish Institute’s Recipe for some great waffles.

Try our recipe to make your waffles extra crispy and delicious. Serve with jam in lightly whipped cream.

Recipe for Waffles

  • 1.25 cups cold water
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 cups of whipping cream
  • butter for the waffle iron
  • whipping cream
  • jam

Mix water, flour and salt until smooth. Whip cream until stiff and fold together with batter. Bake with butter in a waffle iron at full power and put them on a grid to cool. If you don’t have a waffle iron or sandwich press, cook them as you would pancakes. Beat the cream and place on waffles with raspberry, strawberry or cloudberry jam.

We used Wikipedia, and the American Swedish Institute websites for this article. We are half Swedish and we enjoy this holiday. ~~ Publius Jr.

New Legislative Salary Council Gives MN Legislators a Pay Raise

The following article is being reposted by permission from Briana Bierschbach a Politics & Policy reporter for Minnpost.  She posted it on March 10, 2017.  The content hasn’t been altered but ads have been deleted and some links.  ~~ Publius Jr.

Salary council boosts legislator pay by $14,000

Salary council boosts legislator pay by $14,000

MinnPost photo by Briana Bierschbach Council members struggled to set legislative salaries without being able to touch other forms of compensation for legislators, including per diem and mileage reimbursements.

Four months after voters overwhelmingly approved the creation of an independent council to set state legislator salaries, the group voted nearly unanimously to raise legislators’ pay by $14,000 per year for the next two years.

In a 13-1 vote Friday, the Legislative Salary Council set in motion a pay increase for all 201 Minnesota legislators from $31,140 per year to $45,000 per year starting on July 1. In two years, the council will consider legislator pay again and make new recommendations.

The move will surprise some voters, who may have thought they were voting to take away legislators’ power to give themselves unchecked raises. That’s because of clever wording on the ballot question November, which asked: “Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to remove legislators’ ability to set their own salaries, and instead establish an independent, citizens-only council to prescribe salaries for legislators?”

The amendment passed easily, but the reality facing the council was much more complicated. Legislator pay hasn’t been raised since 1999, mostly because legislators feared the political blowback that follows a vote to raise their own pay.

Technically, the job of a legislator is part-time, but council members argued that the job is closer to full-time with the legislative session, constituent services and campaigning all considered. “We actually need to do a catch-up thing here because of the failure to act over a 17 year period,” said council member William Donohue.

It wasn’t lost on council members how surprised many members of the public will be. “When it comes out with a $14,000 increase, it’s going to make headlines and we are not going to be a popular group anymore,” said council member James Joy.

The 16-member commission, made up of both Democrats and Republicans from across the state, started their work in January. They struggled with what to do about the other forms of compensation legislators get, including mileage reimbursement, lodging expenses, extra pay for top leadership posts and per diem, which legislators set. Senators can collect $86 in per diem per day during session, while House members can collect $66 per day.

“I think the per diem is more than fair,” said council vice chair Patrice Hannan. “I even think it’s a little high.”

But the constitutional amendment only gave the council authority to set the salary of legislators — only the Legislature itself can make changes to per diem payments. Several members of the salary council argued that a higher base salary could give the council a strong position to argue that per diem should be eliminated. Per diem payments can vary from legislator to legislator, depending on how much they choose to collect, and aren’t as transparent as the base salary figure, they argued. The council’s final recommendations are due by March 31.

Other members said the council should be thinking about the Legislature it wants — reflective of the state as a whole — instead of the one it currently has. A higher salary will entice people of all backgrounds to consider a run.

“We should be thinking we are setting salaries for what we are hoping is going to be new talent and representative members of our society,” council member Sherrie Pugh said. “[People] who want to serve their state but need to be compensated in a manner that allows them to be whole.”

Maj Toure Seeks Solutionaries in 13 City Black Guns Matter Tour

It seems almost every kind of thing matters these days.  Except proper information about Responsible 2nd Amendment Gun Ownership, especially among Blacks in this country.  The stereotype of a Black person with a gun is that they must be a criminal.  Yet when I, Publius Jr, served in the US Army I thought nothing of my buddies who just happened to have a darker skin color than I do carrying weapons in the service of our job.


In our interview with Maj Toure in the summer of 2016, we liked the ideas–the SOLUTIONS he had to offer.  He underscores education of firearm safety whether one purchases a firearm or not.

This movement of Maj’s is not just a Solutionary standing up and leading but it is based on truths that are in the Bible, which were also used at the founding of this country.

Believe it or not, God gives you the inalienable right to defend yourself.  In the 23rd Psalm,

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

“…Your rod and Your staff comfort me…,” refers to the right to self defense.  He doesn’t want you to be victimized by others.  Reverend Jonas Clark at the Battle of Lexington Green told his Minutemen (his parishioners) to not fire on the British Soldiers first because God supports one’s self defense and God supports just wars.  He also instructed to not fire until you see the whites of their eyes.  So the shot heard around the world most likely was fired by the British.

Maj Toure set up a GoFundMe Account: Black Guns Matter to pay for a 13 City Black Guns Matter Tour around America.  He felt that he needed to get the message out that education on firearm safety needs to be out there.

He adamantly says he is not supported by the NRA, and doesn’t seek their endorsement of what he is doing.

One of the things that impresses us about Maj Toure is that he does, “The Work” that most organizers don’t do.  “The Work” is personal engagement with people around him.  He doesn’t outsource his message to others.  Other people might want to speak his message after being inspired by him.

In our interview he said he looks for people to stop complaining and wants Solutionaries–people who help, health and wealth.

This is not the last article we will do on Maj Toure.

If you would like to know more about him go to his Facebook page www.facebook.com/blackgunsmattermajtoure, or go to the Black Guns Matter product store to pick up a hoodie, shirt, or a coffee mug

Wentworth Cheswell Black Patriot & Son of Liberty

A Black Patriot: Wentworth Cheswell

Wentworth Cheswell
At WallBuilders we strive to “present America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious, and constitutional heritage,” so Wentworth Cheswell (sometimes Chiswell or Cheswill) is a perfect subject for our attention.He was the grandson of black slave Richard Cheswell (who early gained his freedom and in 1717 and became the first black to own property in the colony of New Hampshire); and he was the son of Hopestill Cheswell, a notable homebuilder who built the homes of several patriot leaders, including John Paul Jones and the Rev. Samuel Langdon. Wentworth was named after the famous Wentworth family, from whom came several state governors, including Benning Wentworth – the governor at the time of Wentworth’s birth.

In 1763, Wentworth began attending an academy in Byfield, Massachusetts (30 miles from his home), where for four years he received an extensive education, studying Latin, Greek, swimming, horsemanship, reading, writing, and arithmetic.

In 1767, he returned home and became a schoolteacher, also marrying Mary Davis (they eventually had 13 children – 4 sons and 9 daughters). At the age of 21, he had already become an established and educated property owner and a stalwart in his local church, even holding a church pew.

The following year, Wentworth was elected town constable – the first of many offices he held throughout his life. Two years later in 1770, he was elected town selectman (the selectmen were considered the “town fathers” of a community). Other town offices in which he served included seven years as Auditor, six years as Assessor, two years as Coroner, seven years as town Moderator (presiding over town meetings), and twelve years as Justice of the Peace, overseeing trials, settling disputes, and executing deeds, wills, and legal documents. (View an 1813 document signed by Cheswell as justice of the peace.) For half a century – including every year from 1768 until 1817 – Wentworth held some position in local government.

In addition to his civic service, Wentworth was also a patriot leader. In fact, the town selected him as the messenger for the Committee of Safety – the central nervous system of the American Revolution that carried intelligence and messages back and forth between strategic operational centers. Serving in that position, Wentworth undertook the same task as Paul Revere, making an all-night ride to warn citizens of imminent British invasion.

In April 1776, he signed a document in which he pledged, “at the risk of . . . live and fortune,” to take up arms to resist the British, and in September 1777, he enlisted in a company of Light Horse Volunteers commanded by Colonel John Langdon (Langdon later became one of the 55 Founding Fathers who drafted the U. S. Constitution, then a framer of the Bill of Rights, and later the New Hampshire governor). Langdon’s company made a 250-mile march to Saratoga, New York, to join with the Continental Army under General Horatio Gates to defeat British General Burgoyne at the Battle of Saratoga – the first major American victory in the Revolution.

After returning from Saratoga, in the spring of 1778, Wentworth was elected to the convention to draft the state’s first constitution, but some unknown event prevented his attendance.

Wentworth also served as Newmarket’s unofficial historian, copying town records from 1727 (including the records of various church meetings) and chronicling old stories of the town as well as its current events. Additionally, having investigated and made extensive notes on numerous artifacts and relics he discovered in the region around Newmarket, he is considered the state’s first archeologist. Therefore, when the Rev. Jeremy Belknap published his famous three-volume History of New Hampshire (1784-1792), he relied on (and openly acknowledged) much information he gleaned from Wentworth.

In 1801, Wentworth helped start the town library to preserve and disseminate useful knowledge and virtue. His commitment to providing helpful information is not surprising, for not only had he become a school teacher in 1767 but in 1776 he was elected as one of five men to regulate and oversee the schools of Newmarket.

In 1817, in his 71st year of age, Wentworth succumbed to typhus fever and was buried on the family farm, where other members of his family were later buried. In fact, when his daughter Martha died (his last surviving heir), her will provided that any members or descendants of the family could forever forward be buried on the farm. Unfortunately, that family graveyard long lay in disrepair, but in recent years friends and family have managed to restore it.

The legacy of Wentworth Cheswell is a lasting one: a patriot, teacher, and church leader; an historian, archeologist, and educator; a judge and official elected to numerous offices (he is considered the first black American elected to office in America). He is truly one of our forgotten patriots but he is a laudable example for all Americans – a hero worth remembering and honoring.

Someday Soon Your National REAL ID Card Will Be used to Spy on You

The scare mongers of both parties in the MN State Legislature are trying to get you to support REAL ID.  They are doing it for their re-election in a few years.  To ensure the sovereignty of the State of Minnesota and your individual rights FIGHT for ENHANCED ID.

Oddly enough we are seeing the pro-imigrant and pro-illegal alien groups take sides with us. REAL ID is national ID card that a threat to your individual civil rights and Minnesota’s 10th amendment rights and state sovereignty.

We know a little bit about losing our right to self determination, the SPRCC lost that in 2014 when the Jim Carson Regime fiated that the citywide caucus to elect our Delegates, Ward Officers, and Executive Officers be ended. They set up a puppet regime to dictate–one has to be a delegate or alternate to CD4 GOP to belong to it.

Proponents say REAL ID is one of the things the 9/11 Commission came up with to make sure we are safe in the Homeland. To get one citizens will have to show their birth certificate and their social security card and prove they are a citizen regardless of age.

The REAL ID proposal has been around longer than 9/11 and it found its way into a defense authorization bill much like the Johnson Amendment did in 1954. Like Senator LBJ’s amendment there wasn’t much debate on REAL ID.

*(Open the link and you’ll see the response to the question “Is DHS trying to build a National Database with all our information?” their answer is No. The truth is that at a later time it will be easy for a Obama-like President or a DHS Secretary to do so.  This is a National ID Card and violates the 10th Amendment and your right to privacy).

Right now there is no Official national identification card or papers. Many forms of ID like a Social Security Number, a driver’s license, passports, credit cards with a photo on them, electronic messaging devices can help to identify someone but we don’t live in a police state yet that requires them.

In old World War movies and TV shows about Nazi Europe or Imperial Japan, or the old Soviet Union you will see scenes where characters need to produce papers that say who they are or allow them special traveling passes. Those papers are what REAL ID cards are.  They are a way to track the movements of individuals.

There’s a particular scene in the movie “The Hunt for Red October,” where the first mate of the defecting crew of the Soviet Sub asks his Captain if America will allow him to buy an RV and drive to Montana in it.  Captain Ramius played by Sean Connery, says that he could do that without papers. The first mate is astonished that Americans can move about without papers.

Well that freedom will be a thing of the past with REAL ID. Ironically proponents say you won’t be allowed to get on a plane or train to travel without it.

So what is the alternative?

Enhanced ID is an identification card that allows travel but it is for the intended purpose of being a citizen without the government knowing every little detail about you. Really the government goons can find out about you through your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram accounts without a warrant.

MN State Senator Limmer (R-Maple Grove) is leading the fight against REAL ID in the State Senate and Twila Brase of Citizens Council For Health Freedom (CCHF) is leading the fight in the public as well.

What really is at stake is the Government’s control over what you do. Maybe not now but someday when a US President turns our sovereignty over to the United Nations or the Anti-Christ you will have a card that will be able to track everything you do and it will block you from buying and selling in order to live. Thus was foretold in the book of Revelations Chapter 13 Verses 16-17.

Revelation 13:16-17  New English Translation (NET Bible)

16 He also caused everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) to obtain a mark on their right hand or on their forehead. 17 Thus no one was allowed to buy or sell things unless he bore the mark of the beast—that is, his name or his number.

There is a downright fear of these National ID cards or Apple Pay or devices that spy on you because of Revelations 13:16-17.

Let’s put up a roadblock here in Minnesota and end this insanity.  Remember like Common Core just because other states are doing it doesn’t mean it is good for you.

Find your state Representative & State Senator (www.leg.state.mn.us/leg/districtfinder) and tell them to vote No on REAL ID and Yes to Enhanced ID.
