Don Blankenship’s remarkable story.


Don Blankenship was born on March 14, 1950  in “Coal Country”—in a town with 200 residents called Stopover, Kentucky.  His first home was a camper that cost $750.  It had no indoor plumbing and sat alongside the mainline of the then Norfolk and Western railroad track.


Forty years later Don became President of the largest and the most successful coal company that ever operated in “Coal County”.  In that role he oversaw the mining of more coal that anyone in the regions history.    Enough coal to fill a train of railroad cars that would encircle the world three times.


In 2009, when Barrack Obama took office, he started what came to be known as the “war on coal”. Obama named a former lifetime employee of the United Mine Workers to head the United States Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).   MSHA subsequently required  one of the hundred mines under Don’s management to make changes which cut the mines airflow in half.   Just a day after the airflow reduction was fully completed the mine exploded killing twenty nine miners.


President Obama declared just hours after the last perished miner’s body was removed from the mine that  “we do know that the tragedy was first and foremost the responsibility of management”.   MSHA went further declaring, “the operator blew up the mine”.   Both of these statement were made prior to any investigation beginning.


Four years later Don personally funded a documentary which exposed to the public that MSHA had cut the mines airflow in half prior to the explosion.  Senator Joe Manchin soon after issued a press release demanding that Don be indicted and saying that he believed “Don has blood on his hands”.  A few weeks later Don was, in fact, indicted by a federal grand jury.  But Don was not indicted for having  caused the explosion.  Rather he was indicted  for allegedly lying to the public and for “conspiring to commit mine safety violations”.


Don’s criminal trial was held in West Virginia not far from where the deadly mine explosion occurred. The trial Judge was an Obama appointee and the prosecutor was the son of one the five federal Judges in the same federal courthouse. Prior to trial US Senator Jay Rockefeller (who had sponsored the Judge’s confirmation by the US Senate) released a statement saying essentially that a fair trial was more than Don deserved.


Despite the public emotions, biased media reporting, two US Senators having signaled their views that Don was guilty, the trial being held with the perished miners families in attendance, the prosecutor being the son of a federal Judge, an Obama Judge presiding over the trial and far worse the jury found Don not guilty of all the felony charges against him.   Making it even more amazing that Don was found not  guilty was that prior to the verdict, when the Judge was told by the Jury foreman multiple times that they were deadlocked, she ordered them to continue deliberating anyway.  Finally after three weeks the Jury reached a guilty verdict but only on a misdemeanor charge.


Don’s attorneys were confident he would be granted a sentence of probation.   But the federal Judge sent Don to a federal prison housing twenty four hundred felons and just one misdemeanor—Don. Don spent ten months in the prison and then was sent to a halfway house for another year.  All in all Don’ s freedoms were limited for more than three years and he paid a $250,000 fine for a “misdemeanor”.


Despite the fact Don was only convicted of a misdemeanor and had served his maximum prison time he continued to appeal and fight the conviction.  In the process Don and his attorneys uncovered that the government had destroyed documents, withheld evidence, lied to the Judge, and threatened witnesses.  


Finally after five years a Federal Judge recommended that Don’s conviction be voided and that it be fully erased from the record due to “prosecution misconduct”.  But still the Obama Judge, five months later, has not voided the conviction.


During this five year fight to void the conviction Don ran for the United States Senate as a Republican from West Virginia.   Throughout the campaign Don was subject to the rules of a Halfway House in Las Vegas which confined his campaign efforts at times.  No one gave Don any chance of winning the Senate seat while serving time in a Las Vegas halfway house.


Fox News was so intrigued by Don’s campaign and situation that they decided to have a nationally televised debate between Don and his two career politician opponents.  Don entered the debate with a Fox poll and other polls showing that he was eight points behind.  The day after the debate polls showed Don to be up by as much as eighteen points.


Over the remaining seven days before the election Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and other media outlets as well as Republican political operatives like Karl Rove told their audiences that Don was a felon, a convicted felon, a moron, a racist, an imbecile, a person responsible for the deaths of twenty nine miners and more.


Don lost the election.  He has sued dozens of media outlets, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and Donald Trump Jr. for defamation.  His lawsuit is pending in the same federal courthouse where he was falsely convicted of a misdemeanor.  


Don is writing two books the first of which he hopes to release in the next few months.   This first book will make clear that the government was responsible for the coal mine explosion.   The second book, to be published sometime late this year or early next, will tell how United States Senators conspired to stop Don from winning a United States Senate seat.


I am running for President of the United States as a Constitution Party member in the hope of opening Americans’ eyes.   It is time for Americans to vote for America and not for a Republican or a Democrat.  Elections must be about helping America win not about helping a politician win.



William Mohr Background:

Bill has worked at a number of jobs over the years including over-the-road truck driving and managing a food production plant.  For the recent 10 years Bill has been self employed in the housing industry. 


Bill spent six years as a Precinct Delegate with the Republican Party, but switched his affiliation to the Constitution Party in 2005.  For eight of the last ten years, he has Chaired the State Central Committee of the US Taxpayers Party of Michigan (Michigan’s affiliate of the Constitution Party), and the party has experienced solid and consistent growth under his leadership.


William Mohr’s Campaign Statement


These are very uncertain times in our nation. 


The American people have been perplexed with very poor governance; unconstitutional law, regulation and actions by every level of government.  They have found themselves powerless to get it corrected.  Tea Parties have come and gone, leaving few fragmented groups around the country.  Political action organizations abound, but don’t seem to be able to get the foothold needed to make the changes necessary.


The answer to good governance simply lies in the solely in the election of good candidates.  It is not a team sport.  I plead with my peers, the American people, to leave the party politics in the past and vote for candidates that are worthy; candidates who understand the obligation they have to legislate within the confines of the Constitution. 


Don Blankenship and William Mohr fit that bill.  We will take our oath of office very seriously and fully expect the American people to hold us accountable to it.



Venezuelan Invasion Threatens the USA

Joel --

At this point, it should be as plain as day that the situation shaping up in Venezuela is America’s version of the Syrian refugee crisis in Europe (Islamic invasion of Europe). Europe has endured wave after wave of “refugees” crossing the Mediterranean or walking through the Middle East and Eastern Europe to reach the welfare states of Western Europe. Thanks to the structure of the EU, once these “refugees” were able to enter the EU at any point, they were able to move freely through the block.

Now millions upon millions of them are settled all across Europe. No-go zones are increasing in both number and size. Grooming gangs, gangs whose purpose is to recruit local girls into forced prostitution, are being uncovered, and local police and other authorities are frequently accused of knowing about it and turning a blind eye “for fear of being called racist.” All of this started with the US’ destabilizing actions in the Middle East. It continues to happen because mentally ill leftist activists and traitorous “conservatives” do everything they can to facilitate it. Much of this should sound familiar.

At this moment, much of South and Central America is on the edge of catastrophe. Already, our borders are under constant assault by increasingly massive and aggressive “caravans” of “refugees.” They flee failed states south of the border, including Mexico, but when they come, they bring with them the lifestyles and ways of thinking that contributed to the failure of their nations. The culture they bring with them is damaging to the fabric of the US. The Cultural Marxists of the radical left and the corporate globalists of both parties love this.

The leftists like the importation of a class of easily controlled people who have little to no understanding of our history, rights, or values. These “migrants” have been shown to vote mainly along racial lines, and typically vote for candidates that promise more protections for illegal aliens and more welfare benefits for them. The globalist Republicans like them, because they provide cheap, easily manipulated workers.

These groups have used universities, federally funded public schools, and corporate “anti-discrimination” policies to successfully brainwash multiple generations of Americans into believing that open borders are virtuous and that the US is nothing more than a fascist, failed facsimile of its former self, and therefore, not worth saving. We see the culmination of all of their efforts, endless protests by leftist radicals both young and old, students ostracized by both teachers and fellow students for wrong think, people fired from their jobs for being accused of racism or “white supremacy, and banks canceling the accounts of common people for expressing political opposition to radical leftist ideology.

The stage is now set for the globalists and cultural Marxists to take advantage of the situation in Venezuela to trigger the next migrant crisis. Think the EU migrant crisis, only exchange Muslims for South and Central Americans as the “refugees,” and replace Islam with Cultural Marxism as the driving ideology. Venezuela is, for all intents and purposes, in a state of civil war. Once the real violence begins in Venezuela and the surrounding areas, the number of “refugees” traveling north will swell, and our border will be utterly swamped.

Many people who live in Small-Town America have yet to experience the horror of Cultural Marxism, but it is seeping in. As long as they have control of the academic institutions, financial institutions, and social media, their corrosive ideology will continue to spread until the breaking point. Large numbers of radical leftist now serve in Congress. The latest studies depicting the spread of Americans across the political spectrum show that conservatives are coalescing around a shared set of values that are more or less center-right, while people on the left are spreading further and further towards the radical left. The further left they spread, the deeper into Cultural Marxism they get, and likewise the more authoritarian. That’s why they call us “far right.” They have moved so far to the left, that it looks like everyone else is shifting to the right. Their control of the above-mentioned institutions means that they have a continuing means of circumventing the constitution.

They are trying to introduce a form of techno-fascism to the US. They understand that the government can’t censor our speech, can’t restrict our participation in financial transactions, or discriminate against us based on race or ideology. But they also understand that they, as private institutions, can. They use this power to promote a message of open borders. If you disagree with it, or any of their other positions, then you are refused access to any or all of these services.

The EU has fallen to a form of this techno-fascism. People all across the EU are being arrested for sending anti-immigration messages on Twitter. How do they define “anti-immigration”? Asking questions such as why Muslims can do things, but citizens cannot — disagreeing with paying taxes that go into a welfare system that benefits illegal aliens over citizens — or raising awareness about violence and crime. And recently, the EU has passed internet censorship legislation that imposes taxes for people to exercise their right to free speech.

If we don’t assert our sovereignty and our rights as Americans, expel the tens of millions of illegals already here and repel the invasion of our southern border, then the corrosive acid of Cultural Marxism will eat our civilization away entirely the same way it is in the EU. Many of our most beautiful cities, such as San Francisco, have already fallen victim to Cultural Marxism, and they now resemble third-world countries. We have to push back, and we have to do it NOW. The time is NOW.

The good news is that there are two weapons available to citizens of the US with which to fight back. The first is social media. The second is the ability to run for office and vote. We still can speak, and now is the time to do so. For the first time, our society is beginning to ask the question of why we don’t have the same rights online as we have in the real world. To older generations, the internet may seem like a triviality. But to younger people, the internet is an indispensable and critical component of daily life. All aspects of life for younger people are online. If we all speak up at the same time, they can’t censor us all. As artificial intelligence technology grows, though, there will soon come a time when they WILL be able to silence us all.

We, as citizens, can run for ANY office, and we can sue the government to change any aspect of the law that we want. That is one of the things that makes us unique in the world. Fundamentally, our nation is designed to give as much power to the people as possible. The problem is that We the People have become lazy and entitled. We expect to be taken care of and have been manipulated not to notice that the people that we trusted to take care of us, while we went on autopilot, are abusing and taking advantage of us. We have but to wake up, realize that the power of government is only an illusion and that real power is in OUR hands. The system is as broken as it is because we allowed it to be. But we can reach out, take control, and set things straight — now is the time to do it.

   The Independent American Party of Nevada is our state's affiliate of the national Constitution party.  The following is excerpts from a letter by Frank Fluckiger, national Constitution Party chairman to the IAPN:



A lot has transpired since my last email to you describing a rare window of opportunity that is opening up for the Constitution Party. For the first time in our history, the Constitution Party has succeeded in getting enough signatures to place a remarkable young candidate on the ballot for the office of governor in the state of New Jersey. His name is Matt Riccardi. He is a very dynamic young man and is garnering significant attention through his campaign. Matt has a very busy schedule and he has been able to introduce the party to a growing number of voters in that very liberal state. He will be sharing his experiences with us at the upcoming 
Constitution Party National Committee meeting in Pittsburgh, PA October 27th and 28th.

It has become obvious that the liberal GOP establishment intends to defeat all conservative Republicans running for any office, including Congress. This has become crystal clear in the recent GOP primaries in Alabama and Utah, just to name two states. In both cases the GOP establishment deliberately ran liberal candidates against very capable conservative candidates. Furthermore, in each state, two conservative candidates were placed on the ballot with the goal of dividing the conservative vote, thereby hoping to elect their liberal candidates with a plurality of the vote. The plan worked beautifully in Utah, but fortunately it failed in Alabama, much to the dismay of the establishment. The opposition spent 300% more funds than did the Roy Moore campaign and Moore still handily won the recent runoff primary. Because of these and other recent events, including the Republican Congress' betrayal of voters in refusing to repeal Obamacare, a growing number of conservative Republicans have become increasingly disillusioned with the GOP and are looking for an alternative. 

As a result of such ongoing actions, we have recently been contacted by a well-known conservative Republican who has served two terms in public office. He stated he can no longer remain in the Republican Party and is convinced that there is an overwhelming number of like minded Republicans who feel the same way. He further stated he feels "that the Constitution Party has never had a greater opportunity to tap into the GOP betrayal of the country." Those are his exact words. He has since agreed to be the keynote speaker at the Constitution Party National Committee meeting in Pittsburgh.

One other well known Republican, Joe Miller, has also agreed to address that body. Mr. Miller defeated Senator Lisa Murkowski in the 2010 GOP Primary for the US Senate seat in Alaska. However the establishment then organized a write-in campaign for Murkoski in which she narrowly defeated Miller in the November General Election.

Yet another well known Republican, William “Bill” J. Olson, from Virginia, has requested to attend the meeting and will also address the group. It is his law firm that wrote the amicus brief in the Masterpiece Cakeshop bakery case that will be heard before the Supreme Court. All three gentlemen are traveling to the meeting at their own expense. To me, that is indicative of the level of interest they have in the Constitution Party.
. . . . 
In the cause of Liberty,

Frank Fluckiger
