The Hidden Truths behind Hidden Valley

During my 2014 congressional campaign, I began to be contacted by many people from across the country who are residents of homeowners’ associations (HOAs), sharing all manner of horror stories about their experiences. I see these issues as encompassing core civil rights issues, affecting the very essence of people’s lives: the right to live and raise families in safe, secure, peaceable homes. I wrote a couple of articles (and posted them on my campaign website) about my view of these constitutional issues, i.e., the usurpation of basic government functions by private entities who rely on their wealth for access and control of legislative initiatives, as well as their access to the courts.

When Something Is Very Wrong

As a counselor and chaplain’s assistant, I have worked in prison ministry for over 20 years. I have been around the court system, working with all kinds of down-and-out people, both inside prison walls and out. For many years at Lighthouse, as part of our ministry here, we hosted a residential recovery program. Many marginalized and poor individuals came to live and rebuild their lives. In the past eleven years, we have helped over 60 people gain a new chance at life and find renewed hope.

Courts are the center of self-government

We need to ensure that juries, and not judges, are deciding the most important issues that govern our affairs, with common law grand juries, in particular, derived from the people, and not controlled by the courts, further serving as a check on the abuses of government.

We, the People: Independent Citizen Review Board forming to investigate the courts

One of the lessons that should have been learned, at least locally with the “Kids for Cash” scandal, was that We, the People, cannot and should not exhibit blind confidence in what is happening in our courts. Yes, the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC) issued a review following the Kids for Cash scandal, offering 51 recommendations concerning the family court/guardian ad litem (GAL) system in a glowing 112-page document, letting Us, the People, know that the errors of the courts were on their way to being remedied. It is a review that praised the efforts of one Judge Chester Harhut as well as Attorney Danielle Ross, the former Lackawanna County guardian ad litem (GAL) who pleaded guilty to federal tax charges and is currently serving jail time.

Public education: an appendage of the Left

Many teachers want to trap students in our failing public schools. While schoolchildren in other countries are outperforming our students, teachers unions are opposed to any competition from non-public and private schools.

Rather than allowing parents control over their children’s education with school choice vouchers, the teachers want even more taxpayer money for their broken-down monopoly.
