VT Government’s Sins

“…so that they may learn the difference between serving me [The LORD] and serving the kings of other lands.” -2 Chronicles 12:8b
Understand that the current governing “authorities” are contrary to Christ Jesus! This is a foreign power exerting ungodliness over the souls of men.
Vermont is a satellite State to this New World Order. This is in competition with Jesus’ Kingdom of Heaven!
Vermont serves mammon/money not the Living God. The State of Vermont needs federal dollars as an infusion to keep this corrupt government operating. It is impersonal and not based upon Jesus’ love!

Bill O’ ReillyFox News, (primetime TV 2014) exposes VT as a hostile secular State. Consider: A secular State is “When the government and legal system is separated from control of the priests or the religious establishment. …Communist states are typically secular.” -The Book of Rule, How the World is Governed, DK

I, Thomas, have been in the VT Capitol’s cafeteria when a person across the table from me candidly told me he was a communist.

“Marriage lies at the very foundation of all social order and morality, and constitutes the chief cornerstone of the whole structure of civilized society.” -Justice McKinney in McKinney v Clarke, 32 Tennessee Reports 320 (1852)

It is written: “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the LORD, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,” says the LORD Almighty. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful.-Malachi 2:16

Workers of iniquity promote divorce.
Burlington, VT was trying to legalize “sex acts” (prostitution). Montpelier was too!

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” – Samuel Adams “The rights of the colonists as Christians may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Lawgiver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament.” – Samuel Adams

Sacred Right of Conscience

Governor Phil Scott vetoes flavored e-liquid and tobacco ban– “It really is about trying to find that balance between protecting our youth, but also protecting the freedom that adults should have to make their own choices,” Public health advocates, educators, and medical organizations had urged lawmakers to pass the ban. -VTDigger

Gov. Phil Scott signed an executive order calling on State government to make Vermont more ‘affordable.’” … “But when the applause dissipated, Scott moved on. Left unsaid was how his administration would achieve all that- and what he even meant by ‘affordable.’” – Seven Days, 1-11-17

Gambling- Play responsibly? Why play at all?

Book: Gambling- Don’t Bet on It; Rex M. Rogers. “Gambling, Don’t Bet on It, shows that the so-called community and state “windfall” by allowing casinos is a delusion. It reveals that for every dollar gambling contributes in taxes, taxpayers spend at least three dollars fixing streets, increasing police patrols, and treating compulsive gamblers.”

This humble house in Burlington, VT would have only been in the $30,000 range in the 70’s. Real-estate value currently $455,000. Federal Reserve Notes are corrupt!

Toxic Prisons; Prison guards, inmates suffering: UVM study

National complaint from Chuck Colson: In Vermont, a prison chaplain was told he could no longer offer PF’s newspaper, Inside Journal, because it ‘advocates’ a particular religion.” –Jubilee Extra, February 2005, page 7

Juvenile Center Abuse

“If you don’t think suicide is a growing concern here in Vermont, think again. A local news report in June cited that ‘suicide is the 8th leading cause of death in Vermont.’” -Lou Varricchio, The Vermont Eagle

The latest news is that “The courts face a problem that is simple to state but hard to solve. ‘We don’t have enough money,‘ Chief Justice Paul Reiber told the Vermont Commission on Judicial Operations.”–Rutland Herald, September 12, 2009.

“The State of Vermont has a problem: It likes to spend more than it takes in revenues especially when it comes to the education budget.” -Lou Varricchio, Editor, The Vermont Eagle; March 3, 2018, pg. 4

“This budget demonstrates that a family would need to earn wages significantly higher than Vermont’s current minimum wage, and well above the federal government’s poverty threshold, to be able to comfortably afford living in Vermont.” -Building Bright Futures, 2017 Report; page 19

MONTPELIER — Vermont tops the list of states that spend more money on prisons than on higher education, according to a report released yesterday. -Valley News 2-29-08

Decades later, Vermont still cannot remedy the prison crisis! Inmates describe problems, Burlington Free Press, August 11, 2004;1B, 3B (The prison system came under fire after an investigation into seven inmate deaths since 2002.): “A panel of inmates at the Southern State Correctional Facility complained Tuesday about how hard it is to find places to live when they have completed their jail sentences. ‘I’ve noticed inmates stuck here when they are eligible to be released,’ said Mike Fay…   Inmates repeatedly returned to their most pressing need- housing on the outside.”  

Vermont Right to Life    Pregnancy Resource Center

Abortion is legal in Vermont with no restrictions — at any stage of pregnancy for any reason, no required safety standards, and may be performed by non-physicians.

Few abortions occur in Vermont’s 14 hospitals: 35 hospital abortions were reported in Vermont in 2005, about 2% of all abortions performed in Vermont.

Planned Parenthood of Vermont is responsible for nearly all abortions in Vermont: PPNNE aborted 1,451 babies in 2005, almost 90% of all abortions.

Planned Parenthood performs abortions in four locations:
Barre — chemical abortions as well as surgical abortions through 12weeks of pregnancy;
Burlington — chemical abortions as well as surgical abortions into the second trimester of pregnancy, up to the 16th week;
Rutland — chemical abortions as well as surgical abortions through 12 weeks of pregnancy;
Williston — chemical abortions only.

Eighty-nine second-trimester abortions, (between the 13th and 27th week of pregnancy) were performed in 2005.

In 2005, there were 1,620 babies aborted, compared to 6,475 babies born. That means one baby is aborted for every four babies born in Vermont.

In 2001, the State of Vermont paid for 366 abortions with taxpayer dollars. At an average cost of $357, the cost to taxpayers that year was $130,672.00.

It is legal to perform abortions on girls under the age of 18 without parental knowledge or consent. In 2005, 115 minor girls had abortions in Vermont.

Curse of Legalism

The Curse of Legalism, and “Justice” that kills the soul

“Excerpts”: Tales From A Vermont Courthouse, Addison County Justice, by Peter Langrock

In 1962, a Jewish doctor by the name Dr. Woodard, “[Had] personal goals [which] were focused on his patients and their health rather than on his pocketbook.” He had been given the rated privilege “B” for patient care.  “On one occasion a young girl, about nine years old, had been severely burned.  [Dr. Woodard] “tended to her admission, and carefully treated her.  He did so with sufficient caring and skill that not only did the patient recover, but the Addison County Independent ran a front-page article extolling Dr. Woodard’s skill and care…”.  Members of the medical staff gave complaint, however, that the treatment should have been done only by an “A” rated doctor; as a result, Mr. Woodard was demoted to “C” rating because of his violation of the defined hospital policy concerning patient injury/doctor qualifications.

Later in time, “a young child presented an injured arm which had been fractured.  The fracture was rather straightforward, and it was certainly within Dr. Woodard’s abilities to treat it.  He did so successfully.”  Once again the medical staff gave complaint.  Because of his previous demotion as punishment, Dr. Woodard once again had violated the defined hospital policy concerning patient injury/doctor qualifications.  Punishment this time resulted in expulsion of his surgical privileges. To shorten and conclude this true story, after humiliating and exhausting court process and public outcry (fortunately in favor of Dr. Woodard), he suffered so much stress that he had a nervous breakdown, and was institutionalized.  Three years after his expulsion from the hospital, he tragically committed suicide.

DELINQUENT TAX COLLECTOR’S REPORT (Leicester, VT 2012)
The big news for me this year is I held my first tax sale as the Delinquent Tax Collector. Holding a tax sale is a time-consuming process which requires many legal procedures to be followed. We had five properties go to tax sale, and all but one sold. I am already planning another tax sale this year to sell that property and several other properties as well. As everyone knows, this is the absolute last resort used to collect taxes.
We have not seen much, if any improvement in the economy. Unfortunately, regardless of the economy, the town still needs all of the tax dollars to cover operating expenses. With that in mind, if you are currently delinquent, I encourage you to call me to work out a satisfactory payment arrangement*. -Name withheld out of respect for the individual (*Note: this “spirit” is NOT of Christ Jesus! Threat, Duress, Coercion- Civil government does not have the preeminent position of lordship and supremacy above a Christian’s only one true King: King Jesus.)
