Thomas Joseph Coyne                                                 Civil Action No. 3:15-cv-3669-JFA-SVH


South Carolina Secretary of State (SOS)
And South Carolina Republican Party (RPSC)



The Court was asked on September 10, and October 15, 2015 to officially issue, with dispatch, an order confirming that Constitutional rights of Plaintiff have been and are being violated by Defendant(s).  The Court knows Plaintiff is a Candidate for the Office of President of the United States of America and a timely Award is crucial if Plaintiff is to participate in national debates and other election opportunities.    

Articles 1, 14, and 24 of the Constitution of the United States dealing with (I) Freedom of Speech, Article 1, (the required Plaintiff pledge of allegiance to RPSC); (II) Poll Taxes, Articles 14 and 24, (the $40,000 poll tax demanded from Plaintiff to be split between Defendants SOS and RPSC); also, of course:  (III) Federal Hatch Act (1939) bribes and other criminal violations by a private corporation, RPSC, to a governmental unit, SOS.  Additional federal Hatch Act violations exist.  Defendant acknowledges Article 14 and 24 violations in its “Statement of Facts,” before The Court since October 2, 2015. Today is November 10, 2015. 

Tonight in Minnesota a national debate is scheduled.  Plaintiff is uninvited, in part because Defendant denied placement of Plaintiff name on the ballot for the S. C. Primary election.  Plaintiff is a military veteran and the ONLY decorated combat infantryman in the current field of potential persons for POTUS.  The integrity of the Court comes into question if Plaintiff is denied expeditious service and is damaged financially and otherwise further by refusing him an opportunity to resolve veteran issues from the Oval Office.  Plaintiff veteran is entitled to his Constitutional rights and needs them is a timely manner!.     


With dispatch The Court is asked to declare the demand by Defendant(s) RPSC and SOS of Plaintiff amounting to $40,000 in poll tax fees to split 50/50 between Defendants SOS and RPSC is in violation of Articles 14 and 24 of our Constitution thereby treating Plaintiff in an unequal manner and financially damaging and otherwise harming Plaintiff.

With dispatch the Court is asked to declare the demand by Defendant RPSC and SOS for a pledge to RPSC not to speak out in dispute of RPSC policy positions is a violation of Article 1, financially damaging and otherwise harmful to Plaintiff.  

With dispatch The Court is asked to declare SOS and RPSC in violation of Articles 14 and 24 of our Constitution for denying placement of the name of Thomas Joseph Coyne on the Primary ballot for POTUS in the 2016 S.C. elections thereby financially damaging and otherwise harming Plaintiff.

Thomas Joseph Coyne, Plaintiff                                                Civil Action No. 3:15-cv-3669-JFA-SVH


South Carolina Secretary of State (SOS)
And South Carolina Republican (RPSC)

  1. Defendant(s) calls attention quickly to Plaintiff serving as attorney for self, pro se, almost as though Plaintiff’s defense of himself is a ‘dirty’ deed or ‘dirty’ word.  Self-defense is never a dirty word or dirty deed.  Defendant(s) thinks otherwise, considers it is a disrespectful slur useful to their cause?  Not so!  Pro se serves in this case as a term available for use by SOS and RPSC in ridicule similar to the way people who, having been attacked, are ridiculed for defending themselves instead of waiting for police to answer their call.  Additionally, RPSC and SOS are quick to label Plaintiff “frivolous” in an attempt to bypass the intentional emergency RPSC and SOS created for a candidate in line for the South Carolina Primary Presidential election who is not an “insider.”  The label benefits only persons recognized as ‘established’ life-long politicians.  This quiet change-of-Primary-Deadline-date action violates Plaintiff’s 14th Amendment rights for “equal protection of the laws.”  Additionally, the label documents nicely the effort to which SOS and RPSC go to protect one another’s agenda of control over who gets elected and who gets to vote for who gets elected.  SOS and RPSC is one another’s client in the poll tax business.
  1. Defendant thinks this change of date is structurally necessary for RPSC and SOS to establish, collect and split a $40,000 Poll Tax 50-50, $20,000 in cash going to each side, thereby limiting the rights of citizens to vote for a qualified person not hand-picked by RPSC financial backers. 


The $40,000.00 distribution of money is shared, financially kicked-back from a private corporation, RPSC, immediate recipient of the money, to a unit of government, SOS, for use by government employees.  It is a violation of the Hatch Act of 1939 for any government employee to work, promote and/or assist political persons or parties in this manner.  Also, distribution of this $40,000.00 violates the status quo of Plaintiff’s 14th Amendment “equal protection” rights (ratified July 9, 1868).  According to SOS and RPSC only established politicians, ones in office, one or more in line for the job of POTUS, receive benefits bought and paid from a $20,000.00 financial kick-back.  This SOS/RPSC collusion procedure represents unequal treatment of the law according to the 14th Amendment.   SOS disallows ANY person’s name to appear on the ballot absent receipt by SOS of its fifty percent (50%) $20,000 payment from the toll tax, a violation of the Hatch Act of 1939, and absent a pledge of allegiance to RPSC, a pledge cancelling the candidate’s Freedom of Speech. 

The government of South Carolina mandate requiring a private corporation, RPSC, to share its wealth with SOS in this unequal manner is illegal, unethical and unconstitutional.  This Poll Tax is unconstitutional, of course, but one other important point must be made:  Many military veterans fought hard and many died to defend our 14th Amendment.  Many other veterans are maimed for life, sitting currently while awaiting medical treatment in or near a Veteran Administration hospital precisely while Plaintiff, a combat veteran himself, is being denied equal protection of the laws, the very laws he and every veteran fought to protect, defend and support and remember:  every prominent government employee vows to God under oath to protect veterans.  S/he vows to uphold the veteran’s U.S. Constitution.  This vow is made before we the people, the citizens,  grant each appointed United States Judge and each appointed United State Magistrate Judge the privilege of his/her employment.  Each such government employee pledges allegiance and vows to protect the Constitution.  These government employees work for, and are responsible to all citizens of this nation.  U.S. citizens do not work for government; Government persons, to include Judges and others, are employees of the people!

  1. Plaintiff learned this on September 9, 2015:  RPSC and SOS, conspirators in executing this Poll Tax plan, changed the deadline date for registration of candidates wanting their name on the ballot for the Primary election of President, United States of America, POTUS, by sixty days (60).  This reduction in time to prepare is intentionally detrimental to all but establishment life-long professional politicians and government employees paid to assist them.  Government employees are NOT permitted to work full or part time to elect or work for or against election of any politician(s) or political party(s).  Source:  the federal Hatch Act of 1939. 


  1. The filing fee is a poll tax, acknowledged as such by RPSC and SOS in its October 2, 2015, “Statement of Facts:”  

“Pursuant to S.C. Code 7-11-20, half of that filing fee goes to the South Carolina State Election Commission for the costs associated with conducting the statewide primary election.  The remaining portion of the candidate filing fee is used for costs incurred by the SCGOP in conjunction with voter outreach, promotion, party building, and other legitimate political activities associated the (sic) primary election.  No fee or any other charge is assessed to any registered voter who wishes to cast a ballot in the SCGOP primary.”
RPSC and SOS control who can vote for a qualified candidate, who can get elected in a South Carolina primary election by controlling who gets his/her name on the ballot.  NO voter may elect any person not named on the ballot.  Plaintiff deserves to have his name on the Primary ballot!  Federal law (Hatch Act) and the 1st, 14th and 24th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution are violated automatically by SOS employees in accordance with current South Carolina primary election structure.  Deceit, deception and dishonesty exist; for example, Plaintiff knew NOTHING of the 50/50 split in poll tax receipts between RPSC ($20,000) and SOS ($20,000) until he was denied placement of his name on the ballot for (A) failure to pay the poll tax and (B) failure to pledge allegiance to the RPSC.    

  1. Plaintiff filed his complaint in Columbia, South Carolina in person, driving over twelve hours (12) non-stop from the state of Ohio, northeastern Ohio, in order to do so.  The issue was and is an emergency situation requiring immediate attention and action by The Federal Court; additionally, Defendant complains about Plaintiff being from Ohio and not registered to vote in South Carolina.  Apparently for the record Defendant must be reminded the state of Ohio is one of our fifty states (50), (not 57 states as claimed by the sitting POTUS).  As a member of the United States of America no citizen of Ohio needs to be “a registered voter in South Carolina” as pre-condition to demanding and receiving protection from the U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina.  Every U.S. citizen is entitled to protection from abusive government activity, from out-of-control government and/or governmental units when violations occur concerning the 1st and 14th and 24th Amendments. The Constitution limits the ‘power’ of government employees!  Defendant claims otherwise in its “Statement of Facts.”  Plaintiff deserves protection in federal court from South Carolina out-of-control government; the name of Plaintiff must be on the South Carolina Primary ballot.  Plaintiff is NOT required to pay a poll tax beforehand
  1. “Courts issue preliminary injunction to preserve the status quo litigation,” Defendant says.  Defendant cites former injunction cases claiming only “status quo” demands should be met by The Court.  Defendant appears to argue that SOS and RPSC have been violating the Constitution for a prolonged period of time and thereby created a “status quo” environment and therefore should be allowed to continue, but Defendant fails to understand the “status quo” exists also for the 14th and other Amendments (14th = 1868).  Defendant presents here nothing more than a straw-man argument at best and unworthy of attention by professional persons anywhere; after all, in its same Paragraph II Defendant proclaims:  “. . . it is axiomatic that poll taxes are unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.  It is clear that the right to vote may not constitutionally be conditioned upon the payment of a tax or fee”.  The poll tax of $40,000.00 controls the person for whom one may vote and is unconstitutional; additionally this Poll Tax reveals total lack of integrity on part of Defendant(s) in this instant case.


As an unknown candidate Plaintiff needs exposure of his solutions to national problems if he is to be successful in his quest to earn the right to serve as POTUS.  South Carolina has positioned itself politically to being the “first in the south” to hold a presidential primary.  If Plaintiff is denied the right he has earned to have his name appear on the primary election ballot Defendant has treated Plaintiff in an unequal manner, placing Plaintiff at further disadvantage to other candidates for the same office, ones financed in whole or in part by the SOS and RPSC poll tax. 

  1. Plaintiff suffers irreparable harm if preliminary injunction is not granted as demanded.  The injunction helps alleviate irreparable harm but does not eliminate it.  The poll tax is one part only of the scheme to control elections in South Carolina.  In conspiracy with SOS, RPSC says one must also sign a notarized pledge of allegiance to the propagation of faith in the RPSC, while presenting RPSC simultaneously with the $40,000.00, $20,000.00 of which gets kicked-back to government persons who help maintain existing persons in existing political positions.  (More on this subject below, dealing heavily with existing legislation, the status quo: the Federal Hatch Act of 1939.  Except for the President and Vice President of the United States of America, all federal, state and local government employees benefiting financially, professionally and otherwise from financial kickbacks (bribes, both taken and paid) from RPSC to SOS are in violation of the Hatch Act; also, additional criminal laws pertain to private corporations that bribe public officials).  A person who signs and has notarized the pledge to RPSC agrees to surrender another Constitutional right:  Freedom of Speech.  A person signing the “pledge” may not speak out against the leadership of RPSC.  SOS and RPSC appear to forget that one cannot be required to surrender ANY Constitutional right as precondition to having his/her name on the ballot in any primary election, anywhere in the USA.  Plaintiff’s name must appear on the primary ballot in South Carolina.


  1. Absent payment  of a $40,000.00 poll tax to RPSC, money to be split 50-50 between co-conspirators, SOS and RPSC Defendant proclaims:     

“The SCGOP and the Public interest will suffer substantial irreparable harm if preliminary injunctive relief is granted.  The SCGOP’s status as the “First in the South” Republican presidential primary is critically important to the continued status and vitality of the SCGOP as a leader in presidential politics in our country.  An order enjoining the SCGOP primary would cause irreparable harm to the SCGOP from which it would likely never recover.  Similarly, the citizens of South Carolina deserve an opportunity to vote on the Republican nominee for President of the United States.  An injunction in this frivolous case would destroy that opportunity, thereby causing irreparable harm to the public interest as well.”
It is not the obligation of government employees serving on The Court to concern itself with harm, irreparable or otherwise, to government SOS persons or to privately owned and operated RPSC; the obligation of The Court is to defend the Constitutional rights of citizens against abuse of power and position by government officials and politicians of every stripe;
 It is not the obligation of The Court to concern itself with “the SCGOP’s status and vitality as the “First in the South” Republican presidential primary;
It is not the obligation of The Court to rescue RPSC from failure, from a situation from which it “would likely never recover.” 

  1. Payment by RPSC to SOS violates the Hatch Act.  All (100%) government employees except the President and Vice President of the United States of America are subject to provisions of the Hatch Act; thus, all South Carolina Government Employees are subject, held accountable to Hatch Act violations.  No state government may arbitrarily exempt itself and/or its employees from provisions of the Hatch Act.  All South Carolina SOS employees in receipt of financial, professional and/or other benefits due to receipt of kicked-back money paid initially by RPSC, a private corporation, are in violation of provisions of the Hatch Act when they work to assist RPSC with its promotional and other political “work”.  


The Hatch Act (Act):  5 USC 7323 and 7324.  All civilian employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the President and the Vice President, are covered by the provisions of the Act.  For purposes of the Act, political activity is defined as an activity directed toward the success or failure of a political party (RPSC), candidate for partisan political office (Plaintiff), or partisan political group to include, but not limited to:  (A) use of official authority or influence to interfere with an election (conspire quietly to change the date of the Primary election), (B) solicit or discourage political activity of anyone (Plaintiff) with business before the agency (The Court) by mocking him with verbiage (frivolous, Pro Se) and/or producing slurs about him in writing in documents before the court (C), Solicit or receive political contributions ($20,000.00 each paid to and/or received by RPSC and SOS, (D) engage in political activity while (a) on duty or (b) in a government building (Outright laughter in the face of Plaintiff when Clerk staff learned he was attempting to compete for the office of POTUS, as he attempted to produce United States Postal System cash receipts demonstrating “Service” had been properly served by Plaintiff to Defendant and others as required by law,  Clerk’s office, Florence, South Carolina).  EACH item/event cited here is clearly documented, and provable by Defendant documents before The Court. 

Highly probable and provable with an investigation, but otherwise not provable at this writing is evidence of engagement in political activity (violations of Hatch Act) with respect to (A) misuse of government cell phone, (B) misuse of government equipment, (C) misuse of government leased vehicle, (D) misuse of government owned vehicle, (E) misuse of government travel card, (F) misuse of official government credentials, (G) misuse of government computers, (H) and the list goes on to include, of courses, noncompliance with administrative program policies and more.  Many more crimes are committed daily and while being paid by U.S. taxpayers.  Government employees in South Carolina abuse their power and position by denying Plaintiff placement of his name on the ballot for POTUS in the Primary election in South Carolina.  Their misbehavior in areas of Civil Rights, Ethics (“The platform of the South Carolina Republican Party emphasizes a strict adherence to the United States Constitution”), and Human Resources is encouraged and protected by The Court if this demand for inclusion on the list of candidates for POTUS is denied to Thomas Joseph Coyne. 

The name of Thomas Joseph Coyne must be placed on the primary ballot for POTUS in South Carolina.

This combat veteran of the U.S. infantry (Plaintiff) has NEVER failed to “carry his burden” as alleged by Defendant, nor has any other veteran known to Plaintiff!   The U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina is charged with the responsibility of protecting, defending and supporting the Constitution of the United States of America.  For SOS and RPSC to claim The U.S. District Court must protect the “SCGOP from irreparable harm from which it would likely never recover” is not true.  The Constitution is true; RPSC is violating it, most notably the 1st, 14th and 24th Amendments, each contained currently in the finest document ever written.

OBJECT OF THIS COMMUNICATIONI write to alert you as Republican Party Chairperson and through you alert Party Members in your state, of my Declaration of Candidacy for the Office of President of the United States of America (POTUS) on the Republican ticket in upcoming national elections of 2016.  I will serve one term only (4 years).  I accept no financial contributions from anyone, anywhere.  Please provide me with the necessary form (s), if any, to assure placement of my name on the ballot in your state in adequate time for the Primary Election, or Caucus, and for the General Election. 

PRESENTI am an outsider, virtually unknown nationally and for that reason make myself readily available for speaking engagements and/or media interviews at almost any time and place.  I need use of available news media and university, business, church and labor forums to make my solutions known to a wide audience.  Please see and study:

I have no representation in the White House, the U. S. Senate, or the U. S. House of Representatives, and neither do you.  The only job pursued with vigor by currently elected professional politicians is getting elected and reelected an endless number of times.  These insiders care nothing about you, me or the next person.  Insiders care only about milking the system, obtaining in the process more personal power, more money. Insider politicians care nothing about workers on our docks, our railroaders and retail establishment clerks and small business owners.  Insiders care nothing about the identical people needed to serve in our currently much-neglected military.  About truck drivers, nurses, doctors, bricklayers, plumbers, pilots, short-order cooks, and so on, life-long government persons care nothing.  Ditto for college and university students, for senior citizens and most especially veterans!     

Federal Reserve System: Banking is THE most important industry in every economic system in the world!  The greatest financial stabilizer of monetary and fiscal policy ever created by man (1913) is our Fed.  It is the only institution of its kind in the world.  When I visited in the former U.S.S.R. (1989) with Boards of Directors of each of their banks (2) the directors asked me about almost nothing other than our Fed.  (I met Boris Yeltzin on that trip).  Our Fed is in serious trouble:  The interest rate, the money supply, the Fed’s dual goals of (1) full employment and (2) price stability have been ruined as part of planned socialist efforts to kill capitalism, kill private property, kill the price system, and kill competitive markets.  Socialist appointments of Fed “Chairs” Greenspan, Bernanke and Yellen have inappropriately killed high and rising employment opportunities and have allowed our jobs to be transferred to hostile foreign lands.   Our banking structure shall be saved.  (The Graham-Leach-Bliley Act (November, 1999) must be cancelled and replaced with the Glass-Steagall Act it rescinded.  Please allow me the opportunity to restore proper banking structure and thereby create profitable private sector job opportunities.

College Students:  In overwhelming numbers college students attend government owned, operated and controlled colleges and universities.  These young people borrow money at outrageously high and rising tuition only to find they fail to graduate or, worse yet, graduate with a worthless piece of paper, while remaining in debt financially to government bureaucrats for the balance of their life.  Current elected insider government “officials” forgive carefully selected student debts if the student agrees to pursue a life dedicated to one of voting “properly”.  Allow me the opportunity to discontinue this financially and academically fraudulent governmental abuse of power and position.

PROPOSAL:  As POTUS:  I will ask each governor to organize an all-volunteer militia and I will ask Congress to finance research necessary to desalinate (no Salt) ocean water for domestic and foreign use.  English shall be established as the official language of the USA.  Social Security payments (entitlements) shall not be reduced or denied.  Federal government payments for abortions shall not be made. The Internal Revenue Code shall require an income tax of seven percent (7%) on ALL income received with no exemptions, deductions and/or exceptions.  Everyone plays, everyone pays. Veteran Administration corruption SHALL be corrected almost immediately.  The Constitution of the United States of America shall be protected to include, of course, the Second Amendment.  ISIS and armaments made available to ISIS by the Bush and Obama administrations shall be addressed and discontinued immediately.  Foreign policy, to include trade and treaties, shall be properly addressed.  Employment, output and income for ALL citizens of the USA shall be given first priority.  Our borders SHALL be secured.  Many existing “Departments” of the federal government shall be overhauled, with easily identifiable Agencies eliminated entirely.  The Department of Education shall discontinue its dumb-down-of-Americans campaign.  “Common Core” will be eliminated.  EPA shall be made accountable to Congress.  Each governmental Agency will be reminded employees of that Agency work for U. S. citizens; U. S. citizens do not exist to work and/or be controlled by any government Agency. A legitimate Department of Justice will be established.

Action:  World War III has begun.  We are losing.  I qualify easily as Commander-in-Chief whereas other candidates for POTUS do not! Germany’s Adolph Hitler lost War II but caused us to spend trillions of dollars, and watch the loss lose tens of millions of innocent lives.  As with our open borders Hitler wanted socialist powers to walk in and take control everywhere.  Adolph Hitler ‘only’ demanded National Socialism (NAZI).  We have now International Socialism. 

Please help by allowing the name of THOMAS JOSEPH COYNE onto the ballot(s) thereby allowing me the opportunity to earn election to POTUS?  Let me hear from you?

TO:  Secretary of State












Do whatever it takes to Install in the Office of President of the United States of America: THOMAS JOSEPH COYNE, BBA, MBA, Ph.D. -



This photo was taken (circa 1965) by Lennart Nilsson and appeared in Life Magazine as one of the most important pictures of the 20th century.  This child is 18 weeks old, the age of many children killed currently in the USA by Planned Parenthood, a highly profitable and government financed tax-exempt (501-c-3) organization.  When Tom Coyne is President of the United States of America no 501-c-3 organization will be tax-free.  If we all play, we all pay! As President of the United States of America Tom Coyne will cancel the current Internal Revelnue Code: ALL persons earning and/or receiving money from whatever source shall pay a tax of seven (7%) percent of money received with NO deductions, exemptions and/or exceptions! Period! Additionally, there shall be NO government financed killings (murders) of unborn children, with NO exceptions for any real or imagined reason. This Coyne IRS mandate shall include ALL so-called not-for-profit organizations, such groups earn a profit or go out of business, but remain tax free. This privilege is wrong. "Not-for-profit" groups are not-for-tax corporations. Their MAJOR goal is to avoid taxes, to pretend "profit" is a dirty word. Profit is not a dirty word! Profit is taxed. All expenses in government are paid due to taxation of profitable firms, or with borrowed money. The current practice of excessive government borrowing of money shall stop during the Coyne Administration. "Not-for-profit" firms play; therefore, not-for-profit firms have to pay!

Planned Parenthood and similar tax free groups murder (kill) the most innocent of innocent persons among us! Children similar to the little innocent and very much alive person whose photo is revealed here are murdered daily to obtain their body parts: liver, lungs (2), eyes (2) (blue eyes sell at a premium, most notably in Asia and Africa), kidney (2) and, of course the heart. What happens to the soul remains a mystery! The body parts are sold after a painful and dreadful death! Each killed child loses her/his right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happines." This pracitce shall not be financed by the federal government in the Coyne Administration.

Since 1973 in excess of seventy-three million lives (73,000,000) have been taken, killed, by Planned Parenthood-type organizations, about thirty-three percent of these murders (33%) were children of African-American, Black or whatever the current politically correct name for this group of normally highly patriotic and God-loving, God-fearing Americans is. Genocide is occurring in the American Black community, all of which is taking place while we "enjoy" the policies and practices of our "first Black President," one Barack Hussein Obama, known for approximately twenty-six (26) of his years on earth as Barry Soetoro of Jakarta, Indonesia. (Be sure to see and enjoy the 8 foot bronze and marble statute of "Little Barry" sitting currently on the grounds of the St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Elementary School in Jakarts, Indonesias, where Barry attended grade (elementary) school and graduated as a Muslim student). Obama/Soetoro went later to a Muslim-only high school in Jakarta before coming to the USA under a Fullbright Grant, a financial grant with additional benefits reserved ONLY for foreign born persons. Note: Our highly regarded Black community suffers twice under this Obama arrangement as our so-called "Department of Justice" in reality is nothing more than a Department of Legal Affairs - in all too many cases with little or no "justice" prvailing. This ciminal activity will change also in the Coyne Administration! Seventry-three million persons killed is a number exceeding the entire population of many well-known nations.

A few other points. (1) The current foreign exchange rate between the Chinese Yuan and the American dollar should be 5:1. Five Chinese Yuan should buy one American dollar. Someone should tell John Kerry? The current "official Chinese" exchange rate is approximately 6.5 - 7.0 to the dollar. In the Black Market in China the price of the dollar is much higher; (2) English must be estalished as the "official" languare of the USA. To get along well together we must be able to communicate - with nothing lost in translation; (3) Our borders MUST and Shall Be secure. A proper reallocation of existing assets will do the job nicley, and the government of Mexico will be glad to coopeerate; (4) Our current and highly profitable Social Security program will be amended. Please see: world_finance.htm, for the Coyne solution on this web page: www.; (5) If Putin and/or Russia want the Crimea and/or Ukraine, Russia should do as we did when we wanted Alaska. We bought Alaska from Russia. Russia should purchase or lease Crimea. I can show Putin how to do it; (6) We entered into (purchased) The Louisiana Purchase when we needed several states in the South and Southwest of mainland USA. We pay our way! Russia "bullies" its way, conduct Coyne considers unacceptable; (7) If Israel wants Palestine territory, Israel should purchase it, the "Louisiana Purchase" way; (8) Banking is the most important industry in every economy: capitalist, socialist, and/or communist. The Graham-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) must be rescinded, replaced with the Glass-Steagall Act it repealed. GLBA is THE causal factor of current national and international economic/financial and employment crises to include, of course, Greece, and to include Germany as well; (9) Government Agencies such as EPA, Department of Education, and all others will be required to reveal results of legitimate research and suggest improvements resulting therefrom, advising us what we SHOULD or COULD do, but under no circumstances will government Agencies mandate what we SHALL do. What we SHALL do is a function of elected officials in our U.S. House of Representatives and U.S.Senate. What we shall do is not a proper function for appointed, nameless employees of one or more government Agency; (10) Health Care shall be provided by a larger number of competent practicing physicians, M.D. men and women devoted to protecting life, by creation of a larger number of additional and fully accredited Medical Colleges (M.D.); (11) Each of our fifty (50) states shall be encouraged to develop an all-volunteer, well-armed, well-equipped, tightly disciplined Militia, one responsible directly to the governor of each state; and, (12) Protection of private property, the price system, competition, freedom and independence betweem and among citizens will be handled with dispatch in a manner designed to gain and maintain peaceful, tranquil public support. Get in touch with Tom? Do whatever you are able to provide non-financial support: Tom Coyne for POTUS!

Tom Coyne, combat veteran, U.S. Army Infantry, is the ONLY person named to date for the Office of President of the United States of America with experience necessary to serve as Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces. We are at war as we speak, World War III, and such a condition is no time for immature on-the-job-training. A one-term Coyne-operated presidency is needed at this time and will occur subsequent to national elections in 2016. President Tom Coyne knows how to handle Iran for example, a rogue state since 1979, and before, but only if you help.

In accordance with Rule 26.01: No full name, address or telephone number of a person(s) or legal entity having a subrogation interest in this motion, if any, is known to me at this time.  I request expedited treatment.  Time is of the essence and I want a non-jury trial.  This motion is filed in Columbia as each defendant is located within walking distance of the court house, 901 Richland Street, Columbia, SC 29210 while I, of course, am located in Summit County, Ohio and definitely not within walking distance of the court house.

To the best of my knowledge and belief this request for expedited motion in whole or in part is not related to any other matter filed in this District of South Carolina, neither civil or criminal.

This motion is based on factual data associated with poll taxes and two Amendments (2) to the U.S. Constitution:  XIV and XXIV, the latter ratified in 1964.  All facts involved here have a long legal history, dealing with unreasonable burdens associated with poll taxes and dealing as well with one’s ability to vote for a qualified candidate of one’s choice.  This is not a frivolous legal action.  Required taxes paid to political parties who later kick-back some of the money for promotion and propagation of the Republican Party, in this case, is equivalent to poll taxes in discriminating effect.  Such taxes violate equal protection under the laws.  The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is violated by this SCRP/SC government tax, as is the 24th Amendment.

Section 1 of the 24th Amendment says “The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President . . . shall not be denied by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax. (Emphasis added).”  Section 2 declares:  “The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”  The intent of this Section 2 is for members of Congress to enforce “no poll tax or other tax legislation, not to transfer the financial benefits of poll and other taxes to members of Congress, to  Senator Graham and others, for example, as has been and is being done.  Members of Congress currently transfer poll tax benefits from government in general to themselves as members of Congress in particular.  This court is being asked to correct this blatant abuse of power and authority on part of Congress and its members.  This Court is hereby asked to strike down this U. S. Congressional abuse of Section 2 in particular, abuse of my rights guaranteed by the 24th Amendment in general.

The situation is this:

1.The State of South Carolina and the Republican Party of South Carolina (SCRP) announced a date of November 30, 2015 as the deadline for registration of all candidates interested in wanting his/her name on the ballot for the Primary election of President, United States of America.  I want my name on that Primary election ballot.  Reducing the deadline date by 60 days, from November 30, 2015 to September 30, 2015, has been done and this change places unreasonable, discriminatory burden on myself and other persons attempting to comply with paper work associated with getting a name on the ballot. This 60 day reduction in time allotted violates equal protection under the law by SC government. This Court is asked here and now to disallow this change of date.

2. My “Statement of Candidacy” for President of the USA, POTUS, was filed with the Federal Election Committee on July 27, 2015 and again on August 27, 2015.  No notice or acknowledgment has been received to date from FEC and no notification of change in deadline dates for state of South Carolina was received until my personal phone call to SC on September 9, 2015.

3The agreement between SC government and SC Republican Party goes beyond time constraints as it affects cash flow for each candidate. It controls who runs for office and who gets to vote for who runs for office.  It is criminal as well as civil in practice.  This Court is asked to disallow financial kick-backs to established politicians resulting and from manipulations of time frames for elections as has been done with a last-minute change in filing for name placement for the 2016 primary election date.

4. The government of South Carolina “Elections Commission” was contacted by me personally on September 9, 2015 at which time I asked for information concerning requirements associated with getting my name on the South Carolina Primary Election ballot, for POTUS.  I was told the process was easy but the “deadline” date had been changed recently to September 30, 2015, approximately 20 days from this writing and too tight a time frame to allow anyone but professional insiders to respond; in fact, during my contact with SC Elections Commission, I learned candidates Bush, Carley, Carson, Graham (SC), Huckabee, Kasich, Paul, Santorum, Trump, and Walker have paid or will pay by September 28, 2015 and each has signed a pledge of support for the SCRP or agreed to specific dates to do these two things before the new deadline date – a date about which I knew nothing.   If 10 candidates pay $40,000 each to SCRP in accordance with the newly announced deadline, money available to be divided among SCRP ESTABLISHED POLITICIANS AND “friends” is $400,000.  People such as Senator Graham from SC should expect to receive additional tax free money, such payment(s), and such payment is in violation of Amendment 24 of our U.S. Constitution, and in violation of the intent of our Section 2 of Amendment 14.  When other states in the USA function in similar unethical manner, the cash windfall to established professional life-long politicians is astronomical, and serves to guarantee them a full life on the public payroll dole.  This poll tax existence and violation is a major factor in current decline of the USA and our culture.  Clearly, we have entrusted the affairs of state to the wrong people.  This Court is asked to disallow these current poll tax violations, to disallow state government receipt and/or distribution of this poll tax money to any citizen of South Carolina, or the nation.  

5. To have my name on the primary election ballot I am told by SC Election Commission I am required to sign a form pledging allegiance to the South Carolina Republican Party (SCRP) and have it notarized.  The form is available only through SCRP who will send it when signed by me to South Carolina government officials.  This procedure is a SC government mandate before placement can be made of my name on the ballot.  This requirement is wrong!  It documents conspiracy between SC and SCRP; additionally, the signed, notarized form must be accompanied with a SCRP receipt of my cashier’s check, made payable by me to the South Carolina Republican Party - in the amount of $40,000.  “This $40,000 is distributed to various offices, persons and interests, mostly South Carolinians.  Whatever it takes to protect the Republican Party,” I was told.  NOTE:  No government, to include the government of South Carolina, or any other governmental unit, is operating within the meaning of any law when it serves as a collection agent for a tax-free 501-c-3 political organization, the Republican Party in this case.  This process is criminal!  I am a private citizen in need of government protection from criminals, and I do not expect government officials to be the very persons from whom I need protection; after all, government officials take a solemn oath to protect, support and defend my Constitution, most notably at this point Amendments 14 and 24.  Government at federal, state and local levels has failed to protect non-establishment persons.  The Court is asked to stop this governmental abuse in time for free, open elections for POTUS.  The Court is asked to recognize this manipulation of free, open democratic elections and disallow current manipulative activity, and do so promptly, in time for the upcoming primary election for POTUS.

6.Section 2, Amendment 24:  “The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”  The intent of this language is to enforce Section 1, of the Amendment; the intent is NOT to financially enrich and prolong in public life-long professional well-established politicians.  This Court is asked to affirm my position here and to disallow financial enrichment of politicians who receive financial kick-backs from this poll tax.

7. Section 1, Amendment 24:  “The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax. (Emphasis provided); Ratified:  1964.  This Court is asked to affirm my position here and to disallow collection of poll or other tax as pre-condition to allowing one to have his/her name on the primary ballot in SC, and do so in time to affect the 2016 national elections.

8. Amendment 14 (ratified July 9, 1968), of our Constitution assured equal protection, equal apportionment under the law.  In the instance cited here I have no equality relative to Senator Graham or Donald Trump as each is expected to pay $40,000 to get his name on the ballot, nor do I deserve financial equity with Trump, but Graham may get money from SCRP, financial kick-backs from the SC government mandated and conspired poll tax.  Trump is entitled to his unequal treatment.  He spent his life making money and it is his to spend as he might like.  I spent life raising five (5) children and teaching college – with no regrets and no animosity towards Trump!  May God Bless him!  Graham is another matter!  Graham financially benefits from the SC poll tax and from the change in deadline date for placement of name for the Republican Party Primary Election.  Senator Graham passed the horrendous Graham-Leach-Bliley Act, (November, 1999), the causal piece of legislation directly responsible for chaos in banking (and employment) throughout the world - to include Greece and Germany and Japan and, of course, the USA.  This Court is asked to affirm my Constitutional right to refuse to pay this poll tax as pre-condition for placement of my name on the SC primary election ballot.  (NOTE:  I am NOT claiming inability to pay; I am stating unwillingness to pay a poll tax).

10. The government of SC requires a $40,000 tax.  A poll tax.  An illegal poll tax.  An unconstitutional poll tax. I demand here that my name to be on the ballot without being required to pay an illegal tax, without having to pledge allegiance to the SC Republican Party.  A poll tax on candidates is every bit as invalid, illegal and in total violation of the 14th Amendment as a poll tax on voters.  Both taxes have the same negative, harmful, illegal unconstitutional impact on American society.  This Court is asked to affirm my Constitutional right not to pay this poll tax and disallow the tax; moreover, this Court is asked to disallow last minute manipulation of posted primary ballot acceptance dates, such as the 11/30/15 movement to 9/30/15.  It is 9/10/15 currently! SC government is required by law to hold a presidential election.  It is not required, nor is it permitted for SC to require a candidate, myself, for the office of President of the U.S. to make donations to a tax exempt political party (SCRP) as pre-condition for placement of candidate’s name, my name, on the ballot; yet, the SC government assurance to me on September 9, 2015 was this:  “If you do not sign the form, if you do not pay the money, you are not on the ballot.” This mandate is criminal behavior on the part of SC government!  This Court is asked to affirm my position here and to disallow SCRP from keeping my name off the ballot as SC has done to date.

11. The Supreme Court of the United States in handling the Affordable Care Act, known also as “Obamacare,” declared mandates to be synonyms for taxes.  Our U.S. Congress passed legislation, with the help of Senator Lindsay Graham, to allow tax exempt donations to political parties (Republican Party in this instance) and the Political party is permitted to kick-back some of the money, such money going directly to established, life-long professional politicians who are running again and again and again for office, Senator Graham, among others, for example.  Graham is a full time, life-long heavily paid public employee of the American people and he will receive some of the $40,000 per candidate payable to SCRP he voted to allow – all in addition to his salary - while he runs full time for another, better, more powerful job and totally in violation of Constitutional Amendments 14 and 24.  This Court is asked here and now to disallow these payments!

12. SC state government abuses the power and authority of its position as it continues to “poll tax” in the unreasonable, unconstitutional manner cited here.  This Court is asked here and now to disallow continuance of this unconstitutional behavior!

13. Conspiracy exists between SCRP and SCgov.  This effort on my part is to stop the conspiracy and get my name on the ballot for the Primary election scheduled currently in South Carolina for February 20, 2016.  This Court is asked to affirm my position here. The Court is asked to declare my right to have my name, “Thomas Joseph Coyne”, Financial Economist, appear on the primary ballot in the State of South Carolina with such declaration by this Court occurring promptly, in more than minimal time for potential success in upcoming national elections of POTUS!


15. I seek financial reimbursement of court costs and travel expenses; however, much more importantly, I seek enforcement of item 14, above.

Re:  Involvement in American affairs

Dear Pope Francis:

  1. If you want the Roman Catholic Church to involve itself in domestic American politics register Church as a legitimate political party;
  2. Please address the real church problems, (a)  Money laundering at and by The Bank of the Vatican, and (b) Child abuse by clergy and “other” church officials;
  3. This country was founded by Americans to escape church-domination of their lives throughout Europe and your attempt at sedition is not welcome; and,
  4. I remember clearly the damage done to mankind by Pope Pius XII (Hitler’s Pope) and the millions of lives and fortunes lost because of his dereliction of duty.  PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF AND MY CHURCH to error badly again!

May 17, 2015

TO: Citizens of Bath Township and Summit County, Ohio
FROM:  Tom Coyne ©
SUBJECT:  Bath Township Trustee and Summit County Council participation in:  (1) Legalized Theft; (2) Governmental Abuse of Power and Position.

  1. EPA issued a financial water and sewer “mandate” on City of Akron as Akron leaders had  failed to maintain satisfactory sanitary and storm sewers.  Our U.S. Supreme Court declared “mandate” a synonym for the word “tax.”  Akron’s EPA tax on water exceeds the price of water in your water bill by an amount in excess of 100%.  No good or service anywhere is allowed a tax rate in excess of 100% of price.  Additionally, (1) No federal government agency has authority to tax, and (2) No city in Ohio has authority to tax persons from other cities.  Akron and EPA are guilty of fraudulent governmental abuse.  Food is not taxed as it is needed for life, water is more critical to life than food!  The tax on water MUST be removed!  
  2. Townships in the state of Ohio may not impose personal income taxes on citizens.  Using a legal device created by Bath Trustees ito impose income taxes on Bath citizens, the “Joint Economic Development District (J.E.D.D.),” residents and non-residents pay personal income taxes to Akron and Fairlawn who, in turn, kick-back part of that tax to Trustees of Bath.  NO citizen of Bath had or has a voice into the amount of city income tax required.  No Bath citizen may vote for or against any politician in Akron or Fairlawn.  To avoid “taxation without representation” we fought and won the Revolutionary War!  Eliminate the unjust JEDD tax!
  3. Bath Township Issue 8 called “Our Library” unjustly allowed a tax increase and a tax rate renewal generating additional millions of dollars for an obsolete institution: libraries.  Bath Trustees and Summit County Council members placed #8 on the ballot at huge expense, the ONLY item to be voted upon, and on a carefully selected date when almost no taxpayer ever votes! This procedure is unjust, makes a mockery of freedom, democracy!  We deserve a Justice System; we have only an insufficient legal system.
  4. A Tornado Alert sounds routinely in nearby Fairlawn at taxpayer expense.  There has never been a tornado in Summit County.  Government reported one in 2012, and earlier, but each time it was only than high winds.  Tornados require large areas of flat land to develop and destroy.  Summit County has hills, not flat land.  Summit County has never had a tornado!

Demand cancelation of the water tax, and the JEDD tax, “A” and “B” above, and politically unethical, unjust, unreasonable taxing and spending as cited in paragraphs C and D.  Contact:;; and,

Professional politicians serve only themselves and political Party bosses, who tell them how to vote!  Only Democrat (D) or Republican (R) candidates gain office.  Independent candidates have no chance, are denied access to the ballot.  The U.S. Constitution, Amendment I, (Ratified December 15, 1791) guarantees one the right “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” but no grievance process exists.  Federal Courts are worthless in these cases.  “We the people” are not served, are never served, have NO representation, no voice, not in the White House, U.S. Senate or U.S. House, not in Bath Township.  Corruption has captured our election process!  Our U.S. Supreme Court accepted such a case and ignored it. Independents outnumber D and R.  Please notice where selecting only D or R has gotten us!


Commentary of May 1, 2015:  The Planned Collapse of the Domestic American Economy

            Barack Hussein Obama, II, a/k/a/ Barry Soetoro, may be the only elected person in Washington, D.C., USA, doing what he was bought and paid to do:  Destroy the domestic American economy!

The problem in Baltimore is two-fold and easy to solve.  Short-term everyone who showed up for the planned destruction should (1) shut-up; and, (2) go home.  Tax-paying citizens of Baltimore should (1) shut-up; (2) go home; and, (3) pay up.  Citizens “pay up” because they foolishly allowed incompetence to establish itself as dominant and in detriment to city of Baltimore, state of Maryland, and the United States of America; meanwhile, as with Akron, Ohio the city of Baltimore needs a City Manager.. 

            Long-term the USA must follow its Constitution and establish a Justice system: “Liberty and Justice for all.”  Our existing "Justice Department" is corrupt!  We have only a "Legal System," a seriously unjust one. This "Legal System" denies justice and liberty to large segments of our population.  USA’s current Legal System (1) must be dissolved, replaced with justice-seeking persons regardless of their race or religion, and we (2) must have term-limits!  As President of the United States of America I would achieve these changes quickly. 

National and international socialists seek and have sought to destroy America, most notably Germany with World Wars I and II, (16 million innocent lives lost in Germany’s War I, 60 million innocent lives lost in Germany’s War II).  German NAZI’s demanded “National Socialism” and currently all of Europe is socialist.  Germany lost both battles but won both wars!  Germany controls the European Economic Union, and EURO – each a failed institution and each with socialists in charge.  Roman Catholic Pope Francis has joined the fray claiming the major global problem is the USA with its capitalism, price system, free enterprise, private property.  The Pope is wrong!   

            Emperor Nero fiddled his violin while Rome burned; In modern times the mayor of Baltimore, Maryland, elected because she is Black and because she is female cannot duplicate Nero’s trick because she may not know how to play a musical instrument but she knows how to abuse power and position of public office, as did Nero.  Citizens of Baltimore trusted and respected the mayor, gave the mayor her office; however and perhaps through no fault of her own, the Baltimore mayor shares with Nero the characteristic of being incompetent?

We must elect persons to public office based on their education, background, truthfulness, and experience.  A good athlete, or a popular movie star or similar but incompetent person, brings only ruin to the person and to every citizen who voted - and to persons refusing to vote.  Disaster strikes each time we allow incompetent persons to occupy positions of power, authority and responsibility.  We have entrusted our affairs of state to all the wrong people, and for all the wrong reasons!  We need educated, mature and intelligent persons in charge. Meanwhile, ignore all comments emanating from every sedition-prone preacher!

We must have term limits!


February 16, 2015: The Office of President of the United States of America. THOMAS JOSEPH COYNE, BBA, MBA, Ph.D. -


Financial Economist, Professor of Finance – tenured, inactive -

I was born and raised in Wheeling, West Virginia and am a graduate of Wheeling Central Catholic High School. I refused to accept any wage/salary/federal pension and/or other government financial benefits if elected to the U.S. Senate in 2014; This identical pledge is made again, 2015, as I hereby and herein expresses interest in running for and winning the Office of President of the United States of America! To date, ballot access has been denied to me by USA's Ruling Class (the Democrat Party in conspiracy with the Republican Party and our Propaganda Press = "Ruling Class") in Ohio and West Virginia - since 1994. Thomas J. Coyne, Ph.D. had over 11,000 petition signatures, signed and printed, in Ohio in 1994 to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Howard Metzenbaum. 5,500 (1/2) of those signed and printed petitions were stolen from a sorority house at The Ohio State University, Columbus, the same day Howard Taft (R. Ohio), Secretary of State in Ohio, claimed inability to read any of the remaining 5,500 signed and printed petition forms; In West Virginia Secretary of State Joseph Manchin (D. WV) refused to provide Tom Coyne's written request for "appropriate petition forms" in my effort to get my name on the ballot for Governor of WV, a governorship sought and obtained at the same time by Joseph Manchin himself. Manchin's abuse of power and position was decided ultimately by Judge Frederick P. Stamp, Federal District Court, Wheeling, WV. Currently Joseph Manchin is U.S. Senator (D. WV); In 2014, in West Virginia, Tom Coyne's effort to get his name on the ballot for U.S. Senator (L. WV) was blocked by fictitious/fraudulent "convention" activity in Charleston, WV. Why is the USA's Ruling Class so fearful of Tom Coyne? Answer: "Ruling Class" knows Thomas Joseph Coyne, Ph.D., needs only your non-financial help to get his name on the ballot and once on the ballot, Thomas Joseph Coyne, Ph.D., will win the seat! Are you able to help?


Scroll down on this page,, and see AutobiographicalSketch.htm to learn my solutions to problems we face. Let me hear from you if you have any questions. See especially the "Archives" section near the bottom of AutobiographicalSketch.htm. See also summary_of_works_by_thomas j_htm.

We cannot change Washington until we change the person(s) we send to Washington! I am that necessary person. Will you help? By age, education background and desire no one is better qualified: I am am a published academic with integrity and heavy experience in business, government, labor, military and negotiations. No one being touted currently by the Propaganda Press comes anywhere near to having these qualifications. The person elected must be able to do the job. Tom Coyne gets things done

With your help I can and will do this job! So Help Me God.

This is a discipline case dealing with suspension for five days (5) of grievant, Randle Haley, General Attorney.

The date of this grievance was June 11, 2011.  The oral hearing was held on December 10, 2014 in Room 524, Wannamaker Building, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania beginning precisely at 9:00 AM and ending some thirty minutes later (30).  The right to arbitrate grievant suspension for (1) Inappropriate Conduct toward a Supervisor; and, (2) Inappropriate Conduct Regarding Use of Government Property was unquestioned.

Neither party appeared at the time and place scheduled for the oral hearing until the arbitrator telephoned counsel for the Department of Education who responded immediately saying he and counsel for Union were in an adjacent room but were coming immediately.  They arrived at 9:10 AM saying they had agreed to reinstate grievant as grievant has developed a better relationship recently with his supervisor, Issue item # 1.  Mention was made only briefly of the second item.  A report has been made with respect to Issue item # 2 the arbitrator was told.  The second matter is criminal, they said, and may or not be pursued by the Department of Education.  The matter is ended, they said, but what about heavy damages to the general public caused by Issue item 2?  One can pursue them individually if s/he wanted to do so, counsel for each side suggested to the arbitrator.  

Union and government representatives jointly announced to the arbitrator in large Conference Room # 524, Wannamaker Building, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, fifteen (15) minutes after each side failed to present witnesses and/or Exhibits other than the eight Joint Exhibits to which reference is made here, of their wish jointly to withdraw the grievance.  Except for counsel from each side, both sides had been “no show” participants at the oral hearing, until the phone call. 

Union and management representatives lack authority to withdraw once the arbitration oral hearing has begun.  We began in Philadelphia promptly at the time and place established/requested jointly by the parties: 9:00 AM.  Also, importantly, withdrawal is impossible subsequent to revelation of evidence contained in Joint Exhibit 6 which explains in detail existence of Department of Education government employee participation in criminal activity.  An arbitrator does not  permit unilateral withdrawal from arbitration proceedings if doing so conceals more than it reveals about the issue at arbitration:  intentional manipulation of the 2008 national election in the USA in this case - in violation of the Hatch Act.   

According to Technical Crimes Division, United States Department of Education, Joint Exhibit # 6, in violation of the Hatch Act, many government employees successfully may have manipulated the general election in the United States of America in calendar year 2008.   

Ostensibly, allegedly, this is a discipline case dealing with “the penalty of five day (5) suspension” of a General Attorney for “inappropriate behavior.” The status of the grievance was signed by grievant revealing an incident that occurred on June 10, 2011, presented to the arbitrator as Joint Exhibit # 4, the signed grievance, and received by this arbitrator on December 4, 2014

Eight joint exhibits were received on the same date including a Joint Exhibit # 6 which causes Joint # 4 to pale in comparison and causes the arbitrator to believe Joint # 4 conceals more than it reveals about the matter at hand.  Joint Exhibit # 3 is management answer to grievant.

Joint # 6 is a report from the Office of Inspector General, Technology Crimes Division (TCD), dealing with Randle Haley, Case # 90-110123.  This Joint # 6 reveals behavior of grievant prior to October 17, 2008, before the national elections for public office.  Joint # 6 reveals large numbers of Department of Education employees used their official authority and/or influence to interfere with the outcome of national elections in the United States of America in calendar year 2008.  Department of Education employees in large number (many hundreds) engaged in political activity while on government duty, in a government building, using government computers and other equipment.  These government employees were identified on October 20, 2008 by TCD as ones who sent emails in large quantity “containing the name of a national candidate for political office in the email subject line.”  Grievant, Randle Haley, General Attorney is named as the subject of this TCD report.

            “On October 20, 2008, the Technology Crimes Division (TCD) initiated an investigation to identify a large number of (government employees of the Department of Education) violating the Hatch Act, 5 USC # 7323 and # 7324.  All civilian employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the President and the Vice President, are covered by the provisions of the Act.  For purposes of the Hatch Act, political activity is defined as an activity directed toward the success or failure of a political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group, to include, but not limited to soliciting or receiving political contributions, soliciting or discouraging political activity of anyone with business before their agency” and other matters. 

            Joint Exhibit # 3 exists and alleges grievant entered “Supervisor Attorney and Team Leader’s office without being invited into that office.“ Grievant is said to have raised his voice and slammed a door.  This conduct was called inappropriate behavior.


Two parts/questions exist in this grievance:  (1) Was grievant disciplined for just cause for alleged misbehavior concerning verbiage and behavior associated with his supervisor; and, (2) Was grievant disciplined for just cause for alleged misbehavior in violation of the Hatch Act?  Was the discipline adequate, reasonable in each event?   


With respect to item #1 of the charge of inappropriate behavior discipline is overly burdensome as we are dealing here with a U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights employee for over ten (10) years.  He has had no recommendations for disciplinary suspension until placed under the direction of a female lawyer and only now because of her attitude and negative behavior.  She has been “curt” in how she expresses concern with work products and assignments.  Some of her methods for conveying concerns are disrespectful and unprofessional.  Her negative behavior appears to rise exponentially when she interacts with grievant.

Grievant strongly asserts he did not raise his voice to her; in fact, he expressed his belief that because her door was open he could walk in.  Grievant has First Amendment Rights.  His supervisor should consider his behavior appropriate.

With respect to item # 2 of the charge of inappropriate behavior, this charge is based in whole on the outcome of an investigation conducted by the Technology Crimes Division and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) concerning possible violations of the Hatch Act.  OIG developed thresholds that reduced some further investigations.  OIG conducted studies reducing the number of employees subject to administrative disciplinary action from an  initial 870 Department of Education employees in violation to 27.  Since the date of the report (September 8, 2010) filed by OIG concerning grievant, further investigations were conducted which reduced the number of employees subject to administrative disciplinary action from 27 to 17.  In addition employees from this group were given either an oral counseling, counseling, or a counseling memo, with the exception of one employee cited for a possible 10-day suspension (this case invoked for arbitration) based on other infractions beyond inappropriate behavior.

Grievant questions discipline based on the criminal matter before OIG.  Department of Education has its own disciplinary policies and OIG involvement is not included within those policies.

Grievant questions the penalty imposed upon him versus the penalties proposed for those employees who were similarly situated in this instance; therefore, he asks that his penalty of a five day (5) suspension be rescinded.   Everyone should receive the same discipline, the same penalty.  Equality of treatment is important.      


An investigation conducted by the Department’s Technology Crimes Division (TCD) reveals grievant engaged in a pattern of inappropriate conduct with respect to excessive and inappropriate personal use of government computer equipment during calendar year 2008;  violations and inappropriate use of government’s computer systems were intentional and knowing on part of grievant; as an attorney poor, perhaps criminal conduct of grievant directly affects negatively public perception of and trust in the Department of Education; inappropriate conduct toward superiors is and has been an aggravating factor with respect to grievant; two of the most recent three performance ratings were “fully successful” while that last rating was minimally successful for this person; confidence of his superiors in his ability to exercise good judgment and professionalism has waned badly; grievant has exceeded by wide margin serious  thresholds of possible Hatch Actallowances, if any.  Legitimate mistakes, unknown errors, other exceptions to Hatch Act, if any, are unwarranted in this case; and, his misconduct (is considered) to be very serious.  No lesser penalty would suffice to deter such conduct in the future.  


            By concealing Department of Education employee successful manipulation of the 2008 national election until December 4, 2014 when Joint Exhibit 6 was presented to and received by the arbitrator; by attempting unsuccessfully at the oral hearing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 10, 2014 to withdraw the arbitration, by joining with AFGE in being a “no show” until fifteen minutes after the arbitration hearing began; by alleging the major Issue is the slamming of a door and verbal general disrespect (loud talking or shouting) to a female supervisor; by revealing, admitting in excess of 800 hundred government employees at various levels within the Department of Education, United States Government were involved in Hatch Act violations prior to the 2008 national election, this arbitrator believes management and union conspired to keep the real issue secret long enough for a statute of limitations clause that might cause and/or allow declaration of Hatch Act violations a moot point, something devoid of legal significance.  Department of Education concealment and failure to act earlier, in 2010, on relevant data included, provided and ultimately presented on December 4, 2014 in Joint Exhibit 6 is wrong! 

The arbitrator considers violations of the Hatch Act to be the major problem, the Issue in this case.

            Department of Education and Union concealment of information contained in Joint Exhibit 6, if planned, is and has been seriously detrimental to honest employees within the Department of Education, those persons not involved in violations of the Hatch Act, and to populations-at-large throughout the world, but especially to taxpayer/citizens of the USA.  Concealment of government employee involvement in support of a named candidate for national election in 2008 cannot be condoned and/or supported by the arbitrator.

            “Inappropriate” behavior is the major issue cited by both sides in this case with definition of inappropriate evolving around an employee’s disrespect for a female supervisor, with emphasis by union and management focusing on loud talk to a supervisor.  This understatement of the Issue at arbitration conceals more than it reveals.  This approach is highly unprofessional, unethical, and appears in place to conceal illegal criminal behavior.  

Grievant, of all persons involved, being a lawyer, most certainly is expected by this arbitrator to have known what he was doing.  His supervisors being lawyers, most certainly are expected by this arbitrator to have known better.  By maintaining their silence supervisors and grievant and union have caused the arbitrator to think each has contributed significantly to the notion that Department of Education management and union persons conspired criminally to manipulate national votes in the election of 2008; the arbitrator believes also the unsuccessful attempt by both parties to withdraw the arbitration after it began at oral hearing was an attempt to avoid publication of this AWARD thereby solidifying, concealing forever Department of Education management/Union violation of Hatch Act secrets.  In a “no show” situation at arbitration the arbitrator is required to fashion a grievance issue and fashion an appropriate remedy associated with that grievance. 

It is reasonable to assume that had management pursued criminal charges once made available by TCD on September 9, 2010, results of our national election in 2012 would have been different; thus, manipulation of voters in 2008 affected the general public vote in national elections in 2008 and 2012.  Gross dereliction of duty by Department of Education management in 2010 was instrumental to the outcome of USA national elections in 2012.

            Criminal behavior is rewarded when Hatch Act violations go unreported and unpunished at the management and/or union level, and a member of the general taxpaying public has no recourse. Management knew criminal activity existed no later than September 8, 2010 but chose to do nothing! 

The private citizen has no standing in criminal court.  Only government officials can pursue criminals.  When government employees refuse to do the work they pledged to do upon appointment to their respective positions, the citizen has nothing.  S/he has no recourse.  No remedy at law exists.  This situation cannot be allowed to stand in a land where government is of, by and for the people.  

            Manipulating or attempting to manipulate a free national election goes far beyond “inappropriate behavior.”  It is criminal by definition.

If government employees as the Department of Education are permitted to go unpunished by violations of the Hatch Act, is it fair to and equal treatment of other government employees in other government agencies, say, persons at Internal Revenue Service, Environmental Protection Agency, and so on, not to have an equal right to manipulate national elections?  If government employees go undiscovered, unpunished in accordance with provisions of the Hatch Act, are government employees free to manipulate future elections? Have government employees manipulated past elections?  How many and how is one to know? 

No government agency is permitted to exempt itself from federal law! 

In a democracy the best organized minority of voters controls/wins national elections.  Government employees represent a minority of voters.  If every government agency, or even a small handful of government agencies, behaved as Department of Education in this FMCS case behaved, complete with misuse of government power and position, and taxpayer offices, equipment and money to influence the outcome of national elections, no candidate or political party or policy can win an election, ever,  without government employee approval. 

If a lawyer and/or other employees of the Department of Education contacts via Email or otherwise, public school offices of superintendents across the nation reminding each superintendent of the large amount of money made available by government to his school district annually, and informing the superintendent this high quantity of money might not be sustained unless the superintendent and his employees (teachers, cooks, bus drivers, etc.) vote for the national candidate cited in the subject line of the Email, what does a superintendent do? 

If government employees go unpunished for violation of the Hatch Act in 2008 government employees may feel validated to violate Hatch Act provisions during national elections in 2016.  


This grievance is denied. 

Criminal investigation(s) shall continue as confirmed to the arbitrator jointly by counsel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at 9:25 AM of the oral hearing, December 10, 2014, such criminal investigations to be of government employees on payrolls of the USA’s Department of Education.   

The suspension of pay and allowances discipline dispensed to grievant is reasonable and adequate for Issue item # 1 of the grievance. 

Department of Education failed to discipline grievant properly for Issue item # 2.  The U. S. Department of Education is held accountable here and shall correct this failure.  Discipline to date is unreasonably inappropriate, inadequate with respect to Issue item # 2 of this grievance.  Termination of employment with forfeiture of pay, allowances and benefits to include pension is hereby and herein required of grievant for violation of Issue item # 2. 

Any management or union person on government payroll who abused the power and position of his/her office; namely, each person who used his/her time, talent and/or government position to work towards manipulation of outcome of a national election, in violation of the Hatch Act, in 2008, reference to which is made in this grievance, shall be terminated with forfeiture of pay, allowances and benefits to include pension. This punishment includes every Department of Education government employee who was working from home. 

Prison and financial fine(s), amount of each yet to be determined, shall be imposed for each person found guilty as a result of the investigation conducted by the United States Department of Education, Office of Inspector General Technology Crimes Division, signed and submitted to appropriate government officials on September 8, 2010, cited as Joint Exhibit 6 for the oral hearing of this grievance.    

The arbitrator maintains jurisdiction in this case until further notice is issued by him.

 Issue item 2 is a very serious criminal matter!  The Hatch Act exists for a reason and no government agency may exempt itself from it or other federal law!

(I) The United Nations, I”

The failed “League of Nations,” headquartered in San Francisco, resulted in creation of the “United Nations,” (UN) headquartered currently in New York City. The UN, too, is a failed organization. The USA must withdraw membership, financial and other support from the UN.

UN diplomats come mostly from socialist nations, are unelected persons from those foreign communities, misunderstand their role in a free, democratic, United States of America, behave in a rude, crude manner while here, lack the civility to leave on their own and must therefore be removed from the this country - with dispatch.

The UN building near the East River in New York City is not international territory, and is not located on UN sovereign ground. The UN headquarters is subject to the laws of the USA to include not only the building itself, but its occupants. Currently, so-called “ambassadors” at the UN fail to pay millions of dollars in parking and traffic fines, ignore anti-smoking laws, fail to meet local building codes, to include installation of fire sprinklers, ignore the presence of huge quantities of asbestos in the building, and deny American building inspection of the building. Additionally, and arrogantly, UN wants the USA to buy and build a new “annex” building, something elegant, for continued and larger but unimportant meetings, something in keeping with the style and comfort UN “dignitaries” have come to expect of the host country. At these UN meetings, discussions are under ways to gain and maintain control of US citizens, to include taxation of them in the short run; elimination of the Constitution of the United States of American in the long run.

(2) “The United Nations, II”

Nine of ten persons using computers throughout the world use Microsoft software programs, items designed, developed and sold by entrepreneur, Bill Gates. Bill Clinton’s White House did what it could to destroy Gates, but failed. The European Economic Community is attempting now, but will fail now, to control this most important communications portal the world has ever seen; thus, acting through the United Nations envious, anti-capitalist, anti-private property, anti-price system persons are trying to prevail where Clinton failed.

The UN is demanding the formal surrender by the USA of control over the Internet! The UN says it must be allowed to control access to our information superhighway, and use it as a political tool to promote a balanced, socialist/capitalist, but anti-American agenda. The UN claims it must be allowed to assign, or refuse to assign, Internet Service Providers, the licensing, or refusal to license, domain names and URLs and, of course, to tax the Internet as the UN sees fit. Free ownership of the Internet cannot be continued or tolerated in the long run says China, North Korea and Cuba as communist propaganda on the Internet is conspicuous by its absence.
The agenda of the UN World Summit in Geneva, Switzerland on December 10th, 11th and 12th, 2003 includes “how to do it” sessions. Should the UN allow the Internet to be managed and controlled by the United States or must the USA surrender Internet to the UN for control by a “consortium of nations?” Taxation of the income of workers of the world, an income tax applicable to “rich” nations only, most notably USA citizens, plus taxation of Internet activity is on that same agenda. Former friends and “allies,” but currently jealous, envious, resentful socialist nations like France and Germany, hope to get something for nothing again. Socialists everywhere smell an opportunity to gain and maintain control, power and money, lots of money, if they stir the world into additional anti-American activity this December, next month._

Barack Hussein Obama II aka Barry Soetoro
President, United States of America
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D. C.

Dear Mr. President:

“You have surrounded yourself with advisers who are both crack-brained and queer.”(see footnote) 

You have used your time in office to create fear in the hearts and minds of all citizens, both at home and throughout the world.   You have taught people to fear government.  You claim you are government.  You are not as I am, we are.  Get used to it.  You work for us.  We do not live to work for you.  We created this country.  You did not!  Our military does not die for you. Combatants die to protect this country.  My country!  Our country!  Get out of office.

Instead of uniting the nation you have torn it apart.  The power and position of high, privileged office entrusted to you by blacks and whites, by rich and poor, by young and old, by each identifiable demographic group in this once-great nation has been badly damaged and otherwise tarnished by you.  As a seditious person you routinely arouse one group to denigrate another, our error, of course, as we entrusted our affairs to the wrong person, to the wrong people.

Consider this letter as a vote of no confidence in you.  You have failed.  You are a failure.  I have no confidence in your ability to function successfully as president. 

People trusted you and you violated that trust!   Please resign at once.  

Thank you,

From the Ph.D. university professor of economics who has a “License to Lie we have learned:  “A liar is a liar is a liar"! (See footnotes) Sophomore undergraduate college students of economics know the lecture on price elasticity of demand coefficients quite well, but the USA’s Electoral College members do not?  This extraordinarily wonderful lying economist, according to Obama/Pelosi/Reid types in government, is wrong!  Price elasticity of demand coefficients alone declares ObamaCare (The Affordable Care Act) a failure. 

Elasticity measures responsiveness of changes in quantity demanded for health care, the dependent variable, to changes in price for those services, the independent variable.  Insulin is price inelastic, for example. (See Footnotes)

Elasticity is calculated by use of a simple ratio, a numerator, the change in quantity demanded, divided by a denominator, the change in price for those services.  When a calculated price elasticity of demand quotient of -1.73 results for example, this quotient indicates quantity demanded expands 1.73 percent for each 1 percent in reduced price.  Total revenue to medical suppliers, calculated as price per unit of service times the increase in quantity demanded, all other variables held constant, would increase sharply; thus, medical cost increases of whatever percent (73%) are paid in additional taxes and price increases to insured citizens.  When the cost of insured medical coverage increases sharply inflated medical prices cannot possibly decrease - as promised by Obama.  (The negative sign of the coefficient shows quantity moves up if/when price moves down and vice versa). 

Numerous Obama health care lies (i.e., no federal money for abortions) existed while senior U.S. Senators, such as now deceased Ted Kennedy (D.MA), were arguing non-stop against creation of new medical colleges and hospitals.  Kennedy and friends were successful in blockage of new doctor and new hospital creations thereby allowing the USA to create still another government crisis:  the current shortage of both hospitals and doctors.  Government loves crisis and works non-stop in this manner to create more crises. 

Medical service demand is price inelastic, influenced by non-price factors.  If a medical service represents a relatively large percentage of one’s total budget, or if purchase of a medical service is postponed, or if competition for substitute service exists, price elasticity numbers will change.  Every legitimate Ph.D. financial economist on planet earth knows these things!

To be of legitimate service to students in particular, to the overall population in general, every university Professor must be believable and function with dignity, discipline, ethical behavior, honesty, honor, integrity and above all else truthfulness, minimum standards of excellence for a nation, its leaders, and its citizenry to foster and support if greatness is to be gained, and maintained.  

No nation is on top if it’s professorial/university leadership is not!

COMMENTARY OF OCTOBER 6, 2014:  The Death Penalty: Who Pays in Dollars and Cents and Lost Freedoms – as well as in Deaths? ©

An authentic estimate of deaths caused by Germany’s World War I was sixteen million (16,000,000) persons, the so-called “war to end all wars.”  It was Germany’s effort to control all persons and things. It failed.  The number of innocent persons put to death during Germany’s World War II is estimated at sixty million (60,000,000).   With War II Germany attempted to control everyone and everything that moves, but failed again.  We learn now of Germany’s most recent effort to control resources belonging to another nation.  Germany has combat troops in Ukraine.  (How many deaths will occur this time, how much money will it cost us and how many additional persons shall be required to live in captivity, live without being free)?  

Once any government involves itself in real or contrived crises it never willingly quits or withdraws.  U.S. troops have been in Germany since 1944, seventy years, for example.  Why?  To prevent Germany from further military activity would be a correct answer.

The USA’s (1) Center for Disease Control and (2) Planned Parenthood’s Research  Institute agree sixty million (60,000,000) innocent persons have been put to death, 1973-2012, in the United States due to abortion, costing untold billions of dollars, and violating the Constitutional rights of children in the womb, persons to whom our Constitution guarantees the right to life.   

War is a crisis!  The USA and every government on planet earth encourages crisis.  When crisis does not exist one is created.  Fear is created whenever and wherever possible, aided and abetted by our Propaganda Press.  In each crisis populations look to government for the solutions they bought and paid to receive; however, in practice, once government institutes whatever controls it considers necessary it NEVER backs-off, never withdraws.  Government grows bigger, more powerful and more abusive.  Additional non-productive persons are hired, placed into health care, pension plans and other expensive benefits and they do not leave.  Result:  National Socialism runs amuck – precisely as Adolph Hitler demanded:  National Socialism (NAZI).  Hitler lost the battles but won the war. All of Europe is Socialist controlled.

As citizens we must do two things:  (1) Reelect no one; and, (2) Amend the U.S. Constitution (A) disallowing the financing of abortions, and (B) allowing ONLY those wars decided upon jointly by the U. S. House and U, S., Senate.  Without creation of these two government constraints democracy in the United States of America is doomed!

Approximately six million of these persons are thought to have been Jewish.

The USA entered War II subsequent to German invasion of Poland (9/1/1939).  The Poles lost in forty days (40).  Poles had been disarmed prior to invasion.  Freedoms were lost.  At Yalta (1945) U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (D. NY.), Winston Churchill (PM), GB, and Joseph Stalin, U.S.S.R. intentionally gave Russia control of Poland. Freedoms were lost again - a second time.

Commentary of Labor Day, 2014:  Government Collusion and Conspiracy, Bipartisanship and Planned USA Economic/Financial Collapse/Destruction. © 

When private business or organized labor or organized crime (drugs, gambling, prostitution), conspires to fix price, employment, output or income, among other economic/financial variables such as interest rate(s) money supply and common equity proxy voting the behavior might be declared illegal, but with each politician being careful not to disrupt heavy financial support (kick backs) received from these identical groups.  Law firms are bought to fix the problem(s).  Financing of appropriate politically appointed judges continues.  Competing lawyers and other involved persons are paid.  Involved politicians are not fined or imprisoned.

When American politicians conspire to fix economic/financial variables harmful to American citizens such as allowing government owned/operated pension plans to vote pension fund holdings (government only holds, does not own) of common equity proxies (fascism), the behavior is praised by each political party and called bipartisanship by our Propaganda Press (PP), resulting in election and reelection of cooperating government elected and appointed persons, allowing each politician continued abuse of public power and position for life. To our disgrace as a nation, term limits do not exist for such persons.

If publicly-traded coal producers get together and fix the price and/or production of coal and their agreement(s) is revealed the conspiracy is condemned by PP and politically controlled judges throughout the nation.  Someone resigns his CEO role in disgrace.  When government persons do the same thing, PP refuses to alert the public-at-large and our USA president goes on another golf holiday.  The politician gets reelected.

This Labor Day elected politicians and appointed government persons are quietly celebrating their latest secret but completed coup of the American taxpayer/voter:  Electrical power shall be distributed equally across the nation.  To assure voters in Ohio, for example, do not get uninterrupted electrical power while persons in California do without, “rolling blackouts” shall occur.  It started with Obama and the “War on Coal.”  Power shall be discontinued in selected regions of the country to make distribution of electricity equal to all persons within the country.  It is a “done deal.”  Our life-long cannot-get-them-out-of office politicians decided.  We will notice it after the manipulated/controlled November 4, 2014 elections.

When uninformed citizens see their favorite ATM machine has no cash, their gasoline station has no fuel, their football game in not on television, his/her child’s school bus cannot leave the garage, a favorite grocery store has no milk, butter, eggs, cereal, meat, potatoes and so on, even the slowest of slow learners among us will begin to get it, begin to see the problem associated with official government abuse(s) of power.  We need term limits.  Current government persons plan destruction of the domestic American economy.  Reelect no one!

We need two (2) terms maximum in the U.S. Senate, six (6) terms maximum in our U. S. House of Representatives.  Appointed persons need no more than individualized but renewable five year (5) contracts, when warranted by satisfactory service.

Commentary of July 27, 2014:  Korea – Sixty-One Years Later.

Two nations, North Korea and South Korea, are additional results of Germany’s failed World War II effort to create socialist control over European people and things, and Japan’s fascist (sophisticated socialism) effort to seek and obtain similar control in the Far East.  Subsequent to War II, the nations of North and South Korea were created at Potsdam by U.S.S.R. Chairman Stalin, British Prime Minister Churchill and U.S. President Truman drawing a line on a map at the 38th parallel through the nation of Korea.  Communists (socialists) were given control of the North, with free persons controlling the South. 

Japan had conquered Korea in the 1930s and controlled it through use of a self-proclaimed “god” whose removal was triggered notably at the “Battle of Midway.”  The Atomic Bomb came later.  Understand this:  Communism and socialism have only one difference:  Communists gain and retain power with a rifle butt and bayonet; socialists gain and retain power and control by manipulating the ballot box, cheating, miscounting, having socialist ideologues vote many times, controlling a formerly free press, creating tax breaks for any Church group willing to promote a required redistribution of wealth.  National Socialism (NAZI) died with Hitler in 1945 after which the world-at-large noticed Socialism has a twin: Communism.  South Korea was invaded by North Korean communists in June, 1950. 

North and South Korean and American “authorities” agreed on July 27, 1953 the shooting and killing of one another should stop for awhile.  (I was at Sandbag Castle, North Korea at that time).  China, a huge military force in Korea from 1951 to 1953 was not present at Pyongyang but agreed to stop shooting at precisely 10:00 PM, sixty-one (61) years ago today.  No permanent truce agreement exists.  Seemingly undeterred again, communist/socialist activity moved from Korea to Vietnam where in each instance the USA made an effort to stop socialism, but political disarray and refusal to win existed in the U.S. Congress.

The greatest generation of Americans gave their lives, liberty, fortunes, everything to win against socialist/government tyranny.  Most members of that generation have died.  Grandchildren of those heroes appear disinterested in preserving, protecting, and defending our Constitution, the greatest document ever proclaimed in writing.  The enemy, the fight against socialist tyranny, is within our borders, but these grandchildren are indoctrinated, uneducated by governmental educational dumb-down efforts which began in earnest in 1970. Is any grandchild of these World War II heores able to name so much as one (1), repeat, one elected public or appointed official considered by the grandchild as being trustworthy? If so, raise your hand!

Life-long politicians have election/reelection as their only goal; our borders are violated; our military is deserted (Benghazi, elsewhere); obesity and idleness are celebrated; millions of persons are unemployed; abortion deaths (60 million) have occurred; combat veterans are abused and die at VA hospitals; seniors are threatened; poison pills are in use; our dollar is decimated; income taxes, real estate taxes, EPA and most agencies are out of citizen control; our President is an imposter; and, the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act MUST be repealed .  World War II grandparents would be proud?

Benito Mussolini was the creator of fascism. He and Adolph Hitler knew one cannot create, build, insist upon a new country until and unless s/he destroys the existing country. Currently the USA has a fascist economy, is a fascist state. Barack Hussein Obama II, known for approximately 26 years as Barry Soetoro of Jakarta, Indonesia, has been bought and paid by national and international socialist interests to destroy the domestic American economy so as to create a socialist (fascist) haven of rest for persons from throughout the world.

The word, NAZI, stands for national socialism, the idea and ideal of Hitler and the 2nd World War; moreover, when Germany started War II with Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939, most of Europe was capitalist; now all of Europe is socialist. Hitler lost the battles but won the war!

Germany started World War I in an effort to control everything and everyone in existence, and failed. Germany started world War II in an effort to control everyone and everything in existence, and failed. Beginning its new strategy with the so-called "Treaty of Rome" in 1957, Germany continued its effort to control everything and everyone in existence. Germany has yet to succeed, but Germany controls the finances and activities within the so-called European Economic Union. Germany controls the EURO. When the USA falls into the socialist camp, the world will be less free, less safe and definitely NOT be a better place.

Obama is an Imposter President, one who MUST be removed from office before he sends additional American military personnel into action, and to their almost certain death and to deaths of innocent women and children elsewhere, for benefit only of his socialist political objectives, objectives identical to the persons and groups who have paid for him to act as he does. IMPEACHMENT OF OBAMA/SOETORO NOW, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, IS A NECESSARY AND PARTIALLY SUFFICIENT SOLUTION - OF BENEFIT TO AMERICA AND WORLD AT LARGE - BUT ONLY IN THE SHORT-RUN. Additional work must be done. We must cancel the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act - immediately.

(Reprinted May 21, 2014 by author Thomas Joseph Coyne, reprint made necessary because of Obama Administration expression of surprise in learning of VA abuse of military veterans).

Each veteran should be encouraged to seek out the hospital, as needed, of his/her choice
With no regard whatever to the wishes of professional life-long professional politicians. 


HOSPITALS.  (VA hospitals might measure-up in some third world nation, or less, but not here and not now).

Good news was cited by Tim Nanna, First Vice President, and Al Casanova,
Adjutant, American Legion Post 449, Akron, Ohio, Volume 12, July-August,
2003, Number 21: “Government is thinking of closing one of our VA hospitals,
Brecksville, Ohio included.  Veterans should do whatever it takes to avoid the Veterans Administration Hospitals, most especially, the VA Administration Hospital in Brecksville,

As a nation we must work to allow Veterans to go to legitimate non-government,
non-socialist hospitals of the veteran’s choice, places such as the Cleveland Clinic,
University Hospitals, Case Western Reserve University Hospitals, Akron General Hospital, and similar places; additionally, we must work to allow Veterans to fill prescriptions at a pharmacy of their choice as opposed, of course, to the current requirement that prescriptions be filled only at government owned and operated VA hospitals. Consider most seriously the following reported, documented facts:

(1)Source: Washington, November 20, 2002, CBS Patient records at one government hospital discovered 41 patients listed as dead by Social Security Administration, but named as ones for which the hospital was paid by the government for alleged medical services to those same dead persons.

(2) Social Security numbers reveal another 225 patients at the same hospital as being dead, but, again these dead persons are ones for which financial costs were incurred by the hospital; but only long after the patients died. Fraud! Additionally, the probability is high these dead people voted in recent elections? The article continues: The Pentagon’s $24 billion military health system overspent its budget in six of the past eight years; This money was spent, but no services were rendered? Many alleged patients were long-since dead?  Meanwhile, living combat veterans are not allowed to go to real hospitals; they must go to corrupt government hospitals.

(3) Source: Center, November 19, 2002. A federal appeals court Tuesday ruled that the U. S. Government does not owe free lifetime medical care to World War II and Korean War veterans who agreed to serve 20 years in exchange, despite promises made to them when they were in the armed forces. It was a 9-4 ruling by the Federal Circuit Court in Washington, D. C.  Hillary Clinton and other socialized medicine advocates are proud of this reversal?
(4)  Source: Fox News, and Associated Press, July 22, 2002.  Boone County Prosecutor Kevin Crane announced in court his decision to ask the death penalty for Richard Allen Williams, 36 years of age. Williams, a former nurse at the Truman Veterans Administration Hospital in Columbia, Missouri in 1992, is charged with the murders of 10 patients.
Crane says 41 patients died, but decided to charge Williams with the 10 to which reference is made.  Crane believes William administered a paralyzing muscle relaxant, succinylcholine, in all 10 bodies. Crane says none of the deceased had been prescribed the drug. Lawyers for
Williams say the time frame has been too long, no evidence exists, and bunches of statistics that are incomplete are all the county has. According to widespread news stories, on August 6, 2003, murder charges against this nurse MAY have been dropped. Continuing.

       (5)  Source: The Las Vegas Sun, March 24, 2002. The Archives of Internal Medicine reveals: Maggots were born in the noses of two comatose patients four years (1998) ago at a
Missouri Veteran’s Administration hospital infested by mice and flies. . . . Mice would sometimes dash over the feet of employees in the hospital director’s suite.

This Veteran’s Administration hospital in Missouri says the infestation started with a housecleaning oversight. Dr. Stephen Klotz, then the hospital’s chief of infectious disease, said the mice moved in after the cafeteria and food storage areas were dropped from
the cleaning list. Some areas weren’t cleaned for more than a year. By July1998, a pest control contractor put out bait and glue boards to kill the mice. Inspectors later found dead mice in a food storage room, mouse nests behind boxes on food shelves, and mouse droppings on the floor of a cafeteria work room. Live mice were found in a large wastebasket.  Cleaners missed some of the dead mice, which attracted flies. Green blowflies like to lay their eggs in dead mice. Some of the flies flew into the hospital intensive-care unit, where they were trapped by automatic doors and kept away from mouse carcasses. Maggots were found in the nostrils of
one patient on July 22, 1998.  Maggots were found in the nose of a second patient on September 30, 1998.  Dr. Klotz said the maggots were removed immediately and neither patient was harmed by the infestation. The first patient died two days after the maggots were found, but the cause of death was unrelated. They are ghastly, but they are harmless, according to Dr. Klotz who went on to say he also found a few other cases where flies laid eggs in patients at other hospitals. 

Studies by Cuban physicians of numerous socialized medicine hospitals throughout Fidel Castro’s Cuba reveal results similar to these VA hospitals in the USA.  The two Veterans who died in the Kansas City, Missouri VA hospital were Americans who had fought for their country. Forty-one veterans may have been murdered by a V. A. hospital nurse according to Prosecutor Kevin Crane, in the Truman Veterans Administration Hospital in Columbia, Missouri, but charges against the nurse may have been dropped by Crane on or about August 6, 2003. Regardless, no abuse of Veterans is reported by Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather or other established news services such as NPR, PBS. The Veterans Administration fails to report abuse in socialist hospitals as did the Bill and Hillary Clinton White House. Simultaneous with deaths and other abuse of veterans in VA hospitals, Hilary Clinton
espoused virtues of socialized medicine, the very medical treatment to which these patients were subjected.

 Veterans must AVOID Veteran Administration Hospitals everywhere, most notably in
Cleveland (Brecksville), Ohio.  Demand and obtain prescription drug and medical treatment at a non-government owned pharmacy or hospital. Veterans MUST BE ALLOWED TO go to a facility of the VETERAN’S choice. The U. S.  Congress has guaranteed each veteran good treatment! The U. S. government was in control of each veteran when he died of neglect or was murdered in Missouri V.A. hospitals. The bodies in one instance were not discovered for days; the neglect not announced for years.

Commentary of April 10, 2014.  March Madness!

It is known to some as “March Madness,” the basketball tournament that in volume of betting outshines former horse race competition in the United States of America by a statistically significant wide margin.  This fact is important as people who make their living betting on this, that or the other thing came off handsomely recently, as did Big Government.  It is like this:

The Government-Owned and operated University of Connecticut entertained in a game of sport with the Government-Owned and operated University of Kentucky in a Government-owned sports facility and Government collected huge financial grants and/or revenues from ticket sales, beer sales, hot dog and other concessions, television and radio royalties, jersey/hood or other souvenir items, Alumni contributions, and the list goes on and on . . . and on.

Organized gambling made huge financial gains and/or revenue enhancements from the printing of poll tickets, collection of percentage of bets made at Casinos and organized locations throughout the country, much if not most of which is in tax-free cash format, with pure profit being made, with a portion of these profits being “kicked-back’ in campaign contributions to and for selected politicians who agree to close Government owned and operated “universities” for a week or so to allow the gambling/betting to occur.  It is a great deal for organized gambling and for life-long professional politicians; however, is it a good deal for our so-called university “students” who “star” in the games, many if not most of whom do not know and could never begin to calculate the square root of 81? 

Who cares!  Stupid question!  “Didn’t we have a good time” is what matters while the overall procedure allows for, contributes significantly to the “dumb-down” plan for Americans in America while vastly enriching organized gambling and assuring that cooperating politicians, ones supportive also of drug sales, prostitution and selected other activities remain embedded in office for life ?

Contributions from organized gambling and/or gamblers may be the largest and therefore the most important contributors to successful political campaigns in the USA!  Each national election is controlled by these people and their money?! 

Sad, is a word to describe properly our cultural decline and ultimate demise in this manner?  Probably not!  No one is “mad.” Former Presidents Bush and Clinton support the organization that supports life-long existence in political party, as does existing President Barack Obama, known for about 26 years of his life as Barry Soetoro.  Obama anxiously made public his bet on Michigan State Government University to win it all.  Almost everyone is thoroughly enthralled throughout March Madness due to voluminous supportive reports appearing routinely in our Government-controlled Propaganda Press.

Commentary of Saturday, March 22, 2014. Votes for Sale.

The probability is sky-high the Republican Party of West Virginia (RPWV) paid compensation in some manner to the Libertarian Party of West Virginia (LPWV) for manipulation of so-called "convention" votes on March 8, 2014 as RPWV found it necessary to block, to deny nomination of financial economist Thomas Joseph Coyne, Ph.D. from seeking/obtaining the office of U.S. Senate in a fair and open election on November 4, 2014. WV Secretary of State Natalie E. Tennant (D. WV.), herself a candidate for the office of U.S. Senator in the identical election, November 4, 2014, has refused to investigate. Why?


Thursday, March 13th, 2014 @ 7:36PM

Libertarian Party of West Virginia, Convention of March 8, 2014, Commentary of March 13, 2014.

I attended expecting to be elected by WVLP membership for nomination to the office of U.S. Senate, WV, an expectation “assured” to me over many months. I worked accordingly, providing numerous solutions to current issues on my web pages. The Executive Committee provided me with names and address of approximately 1,550 members not one of whom allegedly invited to the convention attended, or voted. No absentee ballots were made available.

“Misfit Toys” as described by author Goldschmidt’s character, Rankin Bass, and as produced later in video by Disney may have attended the “convention”, or, perhaps, more correctly, this Executive Committee only production is West Virginia’s best rendition of “The Emperor Has No Clothes?”

NO dues paying members of the West Virginia Libertarian Party were present to vote at their “convention.” Nomination to the office of U.S. Senate was “won” by an alleged margin of 9 to 5 executive committee votes, for a man from the state of Virginia who announced how he and his “partner” decided recently to live in my native West Virginia. Employment, output and income discussions were ignored, but remain in dire need of serious consideration. Sound, acceptable, workable solutions necessary to solve WV citizen concerns remain published on my web pages. My solution to Social Security, my solution for payment of pensions to 100,000 coal miners, my financing solution to 60,000,000 (sixty million) abortions 1973-2012 exists also as does the solution in WV and elsewhere to education corruption, and how to improve the overall standard of living in West Virginia, currently the lowest in this nation. No ObamaCare discussion existed though it is intended to destroy America, and no mention was made of the almost zero overall rating of Congress.

The State of West Virginia, Secretary of State, Natalie E. Tennant, (D. WV.) herself seeking the office I want, U.S. Senator, (L. WV), a woman to whom Michelle Obama, in Michelle’s name and that of President Barack Hussein Obama II, known also as Barry Soetoro, promised $13 million ($13,000,000.00) to Tennant in order to keep control of the Democrat Party Senate vote in West Virginia, was asked immediately by Thomas J. Coyne NOT to certify convention results. She denied the complaint/request claiming “In this instance no state law is involved.”

Tennant, referring in large part to former SOS, Joseph Manchin, says: “. . . that the convention (WVLP) was (not) an attempt by the State of West Virginia to deny ballot access to any individual (Thomas J. Coyne, Ph.D., as it did when Manchin denied ballot access to Coyne) to which you apparently refer, involved state laws establishing filing requirements which were determined (declared in violation of the U.S. Constitution) by court (Federal District Courts, Wheeling and Fairmont, WV) to deny independent candidates, and other political parties, access to the ballot.”

No penalty of any sort for violation of Federal District Court decisions was applied to current U.S. Senator Joseph Manchin, his political machine, or the state of WV. The legal appeal by Coyne of WV Secretary of State’s (Manchin) crime was being studied by U. S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Hubbs Rehnquist at his home the night Justice Rehnquist died suddenly.

I hand-carried, hand-delivered my files to Judge Rehnquist, following precise mile-by-mile telephone instructions from a Rehnquist staff member to the Supreme Court building. At the guard’s parking lot station in Washington, D. C. I handed the files to a Rehnquist aide as instructed. I have wondered ever since if our Chief Justice Rehnquist died of normal, natural causes the night of my delivery. None of the boxes of Coyne’s (my) legal documents(files) were returned by the U.S. Supreme Court; in fact, Thomas J. Coyne never heard another official word from the Supreme Court or any established political power - until receipt of the March 12, 2014 Email from the Office of Secretary of State, Natalie E. Tennant, cited here.

Joseph Manchin, Secretary of State, WV, at the time was seeking the office of governor as was Thomas J. Coyne, Ph.D. By denying Coyne (me) appropriate election petition forms as requested in writing by Coyne, Manchin was assured of no meaningful competition for the office of governor, an office from which Manchin got himself appointed to the office of U.S. Senate, (D. WV.) following the anticipated death of Robert Byrd. The state of WV had violated Federal District Court orders (Fairmont) issued about two years earlier to provide petition forms upon request, thereby paving the way for a walk-in to the WV office of Governor for SOS, Manchin, and with no penalty.

No remedy exists in court, at any level. We have only a manipulated legal system not a justice system as guaranteed by the Constitution of the U.S.

At our Charleston, WV hotel we drank bottled water due to Elk River contamination. The same political parties, families, business and union representatives, have controlled the State of West Virginia for more than 100 years. Government employees declared the water problem ‘solved.’ A recovering leukemia patient with two bone marrow transplants was with me at the “convention” but could not take a shower as the smelly contaminated water might complicate further her efforts at recovery.

The “convention,” contributes more to problems than to solutions for overly poor households in WV. Deceit, deception, dishonesty is always a sham. Poor people do not care, nor should they. They and their families have to eat and they need to continue to kowtow in order to survive. I had hoped legitimate members of the Libertarian Party of West Virginia would stand with me, would vote for me, would be permitted to vote. Not so and no help appears available for straight, normal ordinary West Virginia workers and their families. Poverty stricken politically controlled citizens of West Virginia have no recourse.

Except, perhaps, for Alaska, West Virginia is the wealthiest state in the USA. Oil, gas, coal, timber, water, and of course, its people, undereducated but genetically gifted, are treasures “to die for.” A dire need exists for better leadership in West Virginia. Current politicians know it quite well; however, these current life-long professional politicians will kill, if necessary, to retain power in and control of WV and its citizens!

I fight to be free. Be free with me?

Ukraine/Crimea; Israel/Palestine: Solutions

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014 @ 6:37PM


Today is Wednesday, March 5, 2014. On Saturday, March 8, 2014, the Libertarian Party of West Virginia holds its convention. To be free again nominate Tom Coyne as the person choosen to take the WV Senate seat.

Solutions to Social Security and other domestic problems are available now, as are solutions dealing with major international events – such as Ukraine/Crimea and Israel/Palestine and China/Japan.

When elected to the office of Senate from West Virginia, and from the floor of the Senate, I shall explain how the USA purchased property it wanted/needed. Purchasing property is the proper way to acquire property; armed assault or threat of armed assault is an improper way to acquire it, not only to WV but throughout the nation and the world. Russia and innumerable other nations must learn from our good example. I will explain it to them upon request.

When we wanted Alaska we bought it, from Russia; when we wanted New Orleans we bought it, the Louisiana Purchase, and so on. If Israel wants Palestine, they should negotiate with Palestine and buy it. Military conquest to acquire property belonging to another nation is unaccetable! If Mr. Putin’s Russia wants Crimea, Mr. Putin and Russia should buy it from the Ukraine, reversing the Russian loss of Crimea in 1855 to the British in a horrible war. If China wants two small islands near Japan, they should negotiate a price and buy them.

Should I one day meet Vladimir Putin at the Kirov Ballet in the former Leningrad in a manner similar to how I met Boris Yeltzin at the Bolshoi theatre in Moscow, I hope to have an opportunity to explain the best way to acquire property: negotiate with the seller and pay cash for the acquisition. I will explain this situation in great detail to fellow Senators of course; meanwhile, I need the nomination as it assures placement of my name on the ballot, without which I cannot be elected in November. When you support me, you support yourself, your spouse and your family as I work only for you! Support me and be free.

If I am blocked from getting the nomination and therefore blocked from reaching the Senate floor, I am blocked from contributing significantly to alleviation of additional conflict(s). You and I will suffer as a result of my being blocked. If I get my name on the ballot on March 8, 2014 I shall win election on November 4, 2014. Do it so you and I together, will be free. All of West Virginia must seek and obtain freedom again. Be free with me!

Resectfully submitted,

Tom Coyne

“Common Core” Academic Requirements, a Fascist (Socialist) Effort.

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 @ 2:27PM

Fascism, a sophisticated form of socialism, was created in Naples, Italy in 1922 by Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini, and made operational throughout Italy by 1929. Adolph Hitler liked the sneaky manner in which fascism is introduced (proxy voting by government employees of common equity shares held in government employee pension funds (as the USA does today)). It allowed total control of people but too slowly for Hitler. History is repeating itself in the USA under the fascist rule of Kenyan-born Barack Hussein Obama II, known for about 26 years as Barry Soetoro.

“Common core” is a USA Department of Education effort to apply Mussolini fascism, to control American people through education. Money will be withheld from 50 states if their dictates are ignored, they say. ”Common Core” is not designed primarily to control curriculum. It’s goal is not to educate but to intimidate students, parents and teachers with fear, threats and lack of revenue; but, our Dep’t of Ed. has no authority to force its mandates onto any free American citizen. The Dep’t of Ed. may advise, recommend only; it has no authority to tax, mandate or withhold any money or anything of value.

The role of education belongs in the hands of the Department of Education of the 50 individual states; federal government grants to assist these states belongs to the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. Dep’t of Ed. personnel exceed the power and position of their appointed roles if they think or act otherwise. As the newly elected U.S. Senator from West Virginia I plan to explain this responsibility to fellow-Senators from the floor of the U.S. Senate.

Current “Common Core” efforts seek to legalize text-book content/control. Two specific examples: my MBA level text ”Managerial Economics: Analysis and Cases,” 1984, and my “Readings in Managerial Economics” texts, beginning in 1973, (the best-selling book in its field).

For the U.S. Dep’t of Ed. control is the goal. Education is not the goal! Government controls all people easiest through education when it (1) requires/encourages students to attend school and (2) makes them read what government requires them to read (propaganda). Failure to repeat on exams what is taught in the textbook causes one to fail the course. Formal education is halted, resulting in a lessor lifestyle for the student.

Text book control creates successful “dumbing down” of American education in West Virginia and elsewhere: “West Virginia Ranks Last for Well-Being – Again”, February 20, 2014.

My “Common Core” solution shall be explained in detail from the floor of the U. S. Senate. I must gain Libertarian Party West Virginia nomination at our convention in Charleston, WV on Saturday, March 8, 2014 to do so.

To win in 2014 WV Libertarians must unite, electing a U.S. Senator, and at least two U.S. House members. If they respond, we will win the WV governor’s office in 2016. We will win in 2016 ONLY if we are successful in these elections of November 4, 2014!


How to make the U.S. Senate Coyne operated.

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

DATE: January 25, 2014

TO: Members of the Libertarian Party, West Virginia


SUBJECT: Libertarian Party West Virginia, Convention, March 8, 2014

I am Tom Coyne, born and raised in Wheeling, West Virginia, graduated from Wheeling Central Catholic High School and Marshall University, Huntington, WV. I am a Candidate for U.S. Senate (L. WV.). I own real estate property in WV and have paid taxes on it for 50 years; additionally, I have had a residential mailing address in WV for almost the same period of time. I seek your prayers, good will and votes. I accept no money from anyone, anywhere at any time for any reason. This memo reduces to writing some of my experiences and other background

My residence currently is in Bath, Ohio and as with each person elected to the office of U.S. Senate I shall be a resident of West Virginia “when elected,” in total compliance with our U.S. Constitution. Our Office of Secretary of State, West Virginia is cognizant of and in agreement with the legal correctness of the situation.

I need and hereby solicit your vote to obtain the nomination of LPWV at our convention in Charleston, WV on March 8, 2014.

Invitations to speak at university or high school commencements, at union, business, church, or other groups are needed as well; a forum is needed to explain my: (1) workable solutions for Social Security, (2) workable solutions concerning how to structure pension payments committed but as yet unpaid to approximately 100,000 coal miners, (3) solutions concerning how to amend the 16th Amendment to our U. S. Constitution, (4) solutions regarding salvation of our educational system, (5) solution concerning our banking and quality/quantity of money crisis. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of November, 1999 must be cancelled and the Glass-Steagall Act of 1934 reinstated. As your U.S. Senator from West Virginia I will work to avoid economic collapse here, as happened in the former Soviet Union, by reinstating Glass-Steagall, (6) solutions concerning how to discontinue taxpayer financing of tens of millions of abortions; after all, sixty million unborn babies have been eliminated 1973-2012, the same number of innocent deaths estimated to have been killed in Europe during World War II, 1939-1945. Each solution is on my web page: Helpful additional material may be found also on web page: (Scroll-down to AutobiographicalSketch.htm.). If able, if in position to do so, please help arrange meaningful speaking engagements.

Military Experience: U.S. Army Combat Infantry Veteran, Sandbag Castle, Main Line of Resistence, North Korea, (MLR) complete with badges, metals and letters. What did I do in North Korea? I survived!

Business Experience: (1) Paper boy; (2) J. C. Penney Co.; (3) Baltimore & Ohio Railroad; (4) Van Pelt & Brown; (5) Ross Laboratories; (6) The B. F. Goodrich Company; (7) Robinson Clay Product Company; (8) Chesapeake & Ohio Railway; (9) Summit Petroleum Company (Founder, CEO, President); (10) Tri-State Petroleum Company; (11) Coyne and Associates, Inc.

Education Received: BBA, Marshall University (Accounting, Economics); MBA, Kent State University (Management, Finance); Ph.D., Case Western Reserve University (Economics, Finance); Post-graduate study, University of Chicago (Monetary Theory, Fiscal Theory)[1]; University of Michigan (Computers).


(1) My MBA thesis, “Railroad Proposals for Alleviation of their Financial Crisis” was instrumental in bringing about acquisition of the B&O Railroad by the C&O Railway. Our combined RR became known as CSX. I served as an officer on the C&O during the process, working with Cyrus Eaton who had read my thesis and offered me the job. Eaton was principal stock owner of the C&O. Earlier in life, while studying as a full time student at Marshall U. (Hodges Hall) and graduating in three years, I worked as a Brakeman on the B&O Railway, in Wheeling and in Huntington. I worked full time at The B. F. Goodrich Company, finance area, while completing my MBA in two years. These experiences proved invaluable.

(2) My Ph.D. dissertation, “Banking Structure in West Virginia” was instrumental in bringing about branch banking in WV. Prior to publication of my dissertation by the WV Legislative Services Committee, the state of WV was the only state in the USA with “unit” banking (No Branches Allowed).

(3) As with all publishable MBA theses and doctoral dissertations, these two documents, above, are found in Archives, University of Michigan Library, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Education Given: While completing my education at Case Western Reserve University, I taught part-time at Case Institute of Technology, Case Western Reserve University, Kent State University, University of Akron, and John Carroll University.

After receipt of the Ph.D. and while at Marshall University serving as Chairman, Department of Economics, I agreed to teach MBA students at the Kanawha Valley Graduate Center, owned jointly at the time by West Virginia University and Marshall U. I taught MBA courses at Marshall U. on campus in Huntington. Also, I took undergraduate assignments to teach sophomore economics for Ohio University branches in Ironton and Portsmouth, Ohio.

Subsequent to receipt of the terminal degree, I accepted a request from Marshall University to serve as Assistant Professor of Economics and Chairman, Department of Economics. (Acceptance was a professional mistake. I accepted it for personal reasons: to provide my wife an opportunity to live near family; however, when Martin Luther King was murdered my wife, childen and I left WV in the chaos that followed).

I served at:

(1) University of Akron, Tenured, Full Professor of Business Economics (12 years);

(2) John Carroll University, Tenured, Full Professor of Finance (15 years);

Non-Book Contracted Work Unique to WV, Published: “Index Detail of West Virginia Economic Activity,” Charleston Daily Mail, monthly for one year.[2]

Arbitration: Since graduation from Case Western Reserve University I have settled hundreds of labor arbitration cases being selected each time by the parties, labor and management. Many of these published arbitration cases appear in one volume or the other of: The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc., Arlington, Virginia.

Television: Regular economic/finance “guest” on “The Feagler Show,” a regional production produced and directed out of Channel 3, NBC, Cleveland, Ohio. A considerable number of appearnances were made also on Channel 5, ABC, Cleveland, Ohio. Both the ABC and NBC work was done as a public service while serving as tenured, full Professor of Business Economics, University of Akron. I have video tapes of many of the NBC shows, on VCR only currently.

One must go to the web site and scroll down to AutobiographicalSketch.htm. Information to be obtained reveals innumerable (hundreds) publications, some specific arbitration cases resolved, and universities visited in Brussels, Croatia, Ireland and elsewhere - the former U.S.S.R. (Russia, Latvia, Belarus), for example, and more.

Financial Management Delegation to the U.S.S.R., Professor Thomas J. Coyne, Delegation Leader: A program founded by Dwight D. Eisenhower, and having at the time President George Bush as “Honorary Chairman” requested that I form a delegation whose purpose would be to visit the U.S.S.R., all expenses paid. I accepted. Russia at the time was in the process of issuing bonds, a financial practice considered normal in capitalist countries, a practice shunned by Russians for the better part of seventy years (70). I had raised many questions about Russian bond indebtedness and wanted to know more about it. I formed a group consisting of a number of professors, a few business executives, some of whom brought their wives, and left for Moscow, via Shannon, Ireland. My initial plan was to fly non-stop from New York to Moscow, but Pan Am plane reservations problems developed. We could not leave New York. Aeroflot came to my rescue flying our group first class from New York to Shannon on Aer Lingus and then non-stop from Shannon to Moscow after a one day layover in Shannon. We had to meet an older Russian plane in Shannon. It was coming from Cuba, returning Russian troops home after a tour of duty in Cuba. No plane from Cuba was allowed to land in the USA.

I met U.S.S.R. President Boris Yeltzin at the Bolshoi Ballet Theatre in Moscow on this trip, the evening before leaving for home. I had met earlier, upon invitation, with the Boards of Directors of both Russian commercial banks (Yes, only 2 banks), one in Moscow, the other in Leningrad. I was asked and answered several theoretically correct bank and finance questions, macro and micro. Board member interest was very high, very intense, nervous, almost, and the large numbers of questions dealt deeply and heavily with our Federal Reserve System, a major area of study and teaching for me – thank God – as none of us had any clue what the agenda held or what questions these Soviet Bank Board members might have; moreover, we knew nothing concerning what was next on their aganda or what might be next. We had no agenda. We had no clue the banks would soon fail. These Russian bankers were very secretive that way, that day.

I led delegation members at our meeting with the Deputy Minister of Finance; the Bank for Housing, Municipal Services, and Social Development of the USSR; the Moscow Institute of Finance of All Union (“all union” refers to the overall USSR, not labor); Research Institute for External Affairs; and, we studied a proudly presented Exhibition in Economic Achievement.

Flying between Moscow and Minsk, Belorussia, I was offered an opportunity to fly our plane carrying about 200 persons. I did. Once on the ground I was offered an opportunity to fly a Russian Mig-17. I refused. I received a license to fly from the Russian flight crew in Minsk, Belarus. I carry the license with me from time to time and will share it with any of you who might be interested.

In Riga, Latvia we discussed government economics and finance at the State Bank of Latvia, studied the agricultural firm named “Agrofimra Adazi,” but spent our most worthwhile time with professors at the Latvian State University. They were wonderful. Upon return home a ranking Latvian appeared at the front door of my residence. I fixed him some drinks, took him to dinner and he left for Montreal, Canada the same day. The Latvian faculty knew we were coming, had saved precious severely rationed sugar and made cakes and cookies for us to enjoy in one of their very small offices. The elevator at the university did not work. They were very glad to meet Americans.

Most delegation members and myself delivered technical economic and finance papers, especially at our stop in Leningrad, but also at each stop.

The U.S.S.R. failed, collapsed completely shortly after our visit and their commerciial banks led the way. To this day (2014) their banking system remains unsound. Economic collapse happened suddenly and with no shooting. Conditions were so bad people simply quit working. The same procedure is planned and will work in the USA. The USSR banking system triggered the event by having commercial banks refuse to “clear’ one another’s checks (To put this in perspective, assume you got paid for work but no bank would cash your check. How would you purchase food, clothing, and so on?). With ease, similar economic collapse could happen here. When it happens the collapse in our USA will begin with commercial banks. ATM machines will be out of cash, or nearly so. Meanwhile, if you want large quantities of cash, say, $5,000 or so, banks will deny the request until and unless you explain what you will do with the money. Why do you want your money banks will demand? I have written elsewhere that banking is the most important industry in every economy: capitalist, socialist, and communist. Nowhere is that statement more evident than in overall economic/political collapse of the USSR. Wake up America!

Croatia: A principal part of the former Yugoslavia. I was invited there by the Croatian Stock Exchange to present a seminar dealing with basic economics and finance for approximately 28-30 students and similar persons I was told, one’s desiring to know more about economics, to be held at a local hotel. Only upon arrival for my week long, and beyond, lecture sessions did I learn my presntations would be in in the huge Zagreb Convention Center with hundreds of persons in attendance each day, many of whom had a Ph.D., in economics. During that trip my picture graced the cover of “Banka,” Croatia’s version of “Time” magazine, or similar, I am told, complete with an article inside. I have no clue what the article says as I neither speak or read Croatian. I will place a picture of the cover on my web page:

Senator Coyne: Why so much personal detail in this broad sampling of background you might be thinking? The answer is two-fold: (1) to respond to the question(s) (A) a few of you have raised about my residency, and (B) about who I am. Hopefully, both questions are laid to rest here, but if additional questions arise, please let me have them; and, (2) to let you know I have handled major matters of considerable substance my entire life As your Senator, I will have no trouble addressing USA’s problems; I have workable, solid solutions on my web page(s)! No solutions to are offered by my competition for this Senate seat. However, my fundamental purpose in writing is to make as certain as possible you have enough pertinent information to vote for me at the nominating convention on March 8, 2014. PLEASE feel free to comment and/or ask any questions you might have. Should you find it necessary to grade me on the curve, do it. I need your vote, and remember: "The Lord Giveth, The Government Taketh Away!"

It might by your vote that allows the country to know one day how you helped save this once-great nation by making our U.S. Senate Coyne operated!

Respectfully submitted,

Tom Coyne

November 4, 2002 - COMMENTARY – BY TOM COYNE

(1) “How Government Should Raise Money”

This is Tom Coyne. Listen live each Friday evening, 9 till 10 PM on the new WHK, 1220.

Government exists, and it is expensive, but how should government raise money? The answer is: cut taxes. Government should reduce taxes – all taxes, including but not limited to federal, state, and local income taxes. Government should reduce or eliminate to the greatest extent possible all tolls, excise and sales taxes. Lower tax rates increase the amount of money government receives: The tax base increases as the tax rate decreases. Does it always work this way? No. Under conditions of full employment, government could raise taxes to raise money, but no economy is at full employment – ever; therefore tax rates should be decreased.

When taxes go down, the demand for goods and services go up because people have more money to spend, and they spend it. As consumer spending increases, the demand for employment increases, and goods and services produced increase. Employment rises, unemployment falls. The new goods and services produced are taxed, but at the lower tax rates. Income produced for businesses and households increase and is taxed, but at lower tax rates. The base of the economy expands and pays more in tax than before, but at lower tax rates. Does it always work this way? Yes!

Socialists as well as conservatives know it works this way, but life-long members of the Democrat Party and of the Republican Party pretend otherwise. Members of each political party care only about getting themselves elected and reelected – ad infinitium.

To gain and maintain adequate growth in employment, output and income allowing for high and rising standards of living for all citizens, even newcomers such as legal immigrants, tax rates must fall, but with socialists, the issue is NOT one of taxation. For socialists the issue is control. Socialists want control – at any price – even if the economy is destroyed in the process.

This is Tom Coyne. Listen, live, each Friday evening, 9-10 PM on the new WKH, 1220.


(2) “Are Stock Prices Too High, Too Low? How Do You Know?”

This is Tom Coyne. Listen to Tom Coyne, live, each Friday evening, 9 – 10 PM, on the new WHK, 1220.

If you are going to invest in the stock market, you must determine the value, not the price, of shares of common equity in which you have an interest. The Propaganda Press dwells on price changes. Price determination is a relatively minor problem. More important to a true investor is value of equity acquired. The major advantage of stock (equity) ownership is that each owner has a piece of the company; as such the equity owner is entitled to vote for the management, products and policies of each firm in which s/he invests. Most small stockowners are unaware of their rights to vote on who will be CEO and how much money the CEO can make resulting in many jobs being lost in the USA. More jobs will be lost. Will your job be one of them? How do you know?

Always buy equity directly from the company and buy one share at a time. Wrongly, most Americans buy mutual funds. When you give money to a mutual fund, and the portfolio manager of that fund buys equity with your money you automatically surrener your right to vote your equity proxies. When it comes time to vote for management of the company whose shares have been acquired with your money, your so-called “financial planner” has his/her boss at the insurance company vote what your bought and paid to obtain: your proxy rights. It is “your” proxy, your private property because you put up the money; you incurred all financial risk. Socialists hate with a passion any and all private property! They continuously atttempt to control all persons, all property.

American companies, to include American jobs, American income, American income taxes, American life styles for innumerable families, may be, have been, often are, voted out of the country by “financial planners” using proxy votes rightfully belonging to you, the foolish person who bought into the mutual fund scam. Most likely, you are unaware of this scam – until now. To whom do you go for an explanation? Whom can you trust? If seeking integrity look to Tom Coyne.


Coal Miner’s Pension Problem:  I became aware of a major coal miner pension problem as a result of a lunch late in fall 2013, with a grade school/high school friend of mine and her coal mining husband.  I learned at lunch in excess of one hundred thousand (100,000) coal miners have been identified as persons in position to lose their pensions.  Many miners have devoted 25-35 years of service to the coal mines and they get nothing?  If they die (black lung, old age, other) their spouses, children, grandchildren get nothing?  Their estate receives nothing?  If they live, they get nothing for their service during their few retirement years?  Yes, is the correct answer in each case?  If true why, was, is and shall remain my question!  Despite requests from me to persons in authority and position to know, specific data have not been made available to me.  Is this the result of Obama’s “war on coal?”  We should allow this tragedy?  Why?

Since that routine and excellent luncheon I have been attempting to obtain reliable raw data with which to work, data allowing me to defend my solution to the problem, but no one appears interested.  Again, why is my question?  The solution to this coal miner pension problem offered by me is similar but markedly different from my solution to our Social Security dilemma.  (My Social Security solution is explained in two publications on this web page). 

Inasmuch as it remains professionally irresponsible and indefensible to claim existence of a problem and/or solution to that problem without necessary financial data I request, again, here and now that someone, somewhere provide me with cancelation of coal miner pension data to study.  To date and to the best of my knowledge and belief, no federal, state or locally elected official (i.e., U.S. Senator, U.S. House of Representatives member) appears to know how to address and solve this problem.  This coal miner pension problem is an easy problem to solve; in fact, I have solved such problems during my career as an arbitrator/mediator, but as taxpayers, we continue to receive only what we have learned to receive from elected members of our Ruling Class:  slogans, no solutions, only slogans such as “we will get the economy moving again.”  Worse yet, these slogans are cited always only after politicians caused the problem initially. 

Someone, somewhere, please by whatever legal, moral, ethical method you choose, get me the necessary financial data because I need documentation to defend my solution.  I always have solutions to problems, never meaningless slogans! Meanwhile, remember: We can only change Washgington, D.C. by changing those persons who run it!

Secretary of State Office/ Attn. A.J. Ickes
Building I, Suite 157-K
1900 Kanawha Blvd., East
Charleston, West Virginia 25305

Re:  The Certificate of Announcement

Dear Andrew J. Ickes, Ladies and Gentlemen:

I seek the office of U.S. Senate from West Virginia on the Libertarian ticket in the November 4, 2014 election, and I thank you for the Andrew J. Ickes letter of December 26, 2013.

Natalie E. Tennant, Secretary of State, West Virginia, with her 2014 Running for Office in West Virginia guide says one should “contact the (Libertarian) party for more information” concerning the “Certificate of Announcement.”  On page seven (7) of that document she says, in part, “Filing the Certificate of Announcement with the correct office is crucial.  If the document is not received in the correct filing office by the deadline (Monday, January 13, 2014 through midnight on Saturday, January 25, 2014) you will not be a candidate.  Late filings will not be accepted,” (emphasis provided).

I have contacted appropriate officers on the Executive Committee of the Libertarian Party as instructed:  Chairman, Michael Wilson and Treasurer, Karl Swisher, each of whom says the Libertarian Party has chosen to nominate by convention, not by Primary.  The Libertarian Party convention date is on or about March 8, 2014, too late to be in compliance with the Natalie E. Tennant mandate; thus, I have no choice other than to meet the Natalie E. Tennant deadline and I hereby request:  (1) the official certificate of announcement form, (2) official confirmation of the precise amount of money to be submitted as a filing fee, and (3) official and precise location to which I must submit (A) the appropriate form, (B) the $1,740 filing fee.

I sought the office of governor, WV, when Joseph Manchin was SOS.  I had asked Manchin in writing for “appropriate forms.” Manchin refused.  A WV Deputy Attorney General (AG) told Judge Frederick P. Stamp, Jr., Federal District Court, Wheeling, that WV had not yet printed the necessary forms.  Immediately Judge Stamp loudly scolded him in open court saying West Virginia had been ordered by Federal Court in Fairmont, approximately two years earlier to provide  appropriate forms.  With Judge Stamp’s spontaneous outburst before completion of my Opening Remarks I had won my case; however, the delayed Stamp Court transcript ignores Stamp’s comments and Manchin was seeking the identical office as me, governor, at the time.  I had asked the Stamp Court for expedited attention.  In his much delayed written AWARD Judge Stamp found in favor of West Virginia.  U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Hubbs Rhenquist, was studying my appeal at his residence outside Washington, D.C. the night he died.  I heard nothing further concerning my appeal. I wish to avoid similar mistreatment this time, especially since SOS Natalie E. Tennant seeks the job I seek, U.S. Senator (W.V) in the November 4, 2014 election. (Note: Ms. Tennant was offered thirteen millon dollars ($13,000,000.00) by Michelle, in her name and that of President Barack Hussein Obama II, in an effort to assure Democrat Party control of the WV Senate vote).




U.S. Senator Democrat Harry Reid confirmed today (11/21/2013) what has been well-known on this page for decades: The USA has no judicial system, only a legal system - and the laws of the U.S. Senate have been changed to choke-off the Constitutional RIGHT of freedom of speech, and for whom? Members of the U.S. Senate. Senators are sent there for a reason: to manage the affairs of this once-great nation. Reid's fellew Senators know, as does Coyne, each U.S. Senator has a constitutional God-given inalienable right to be heard on any issue or subject or his/her choice, on the floor of the U.S. Senate or elsewhere as s/he sees fit! Shame, shame, shame of us for allowing socialists to succeed in this manner.

Veteran’s Day Commentary

TO:  Ninety-nine U.S. Senators @ various Senate Office Buildings, Bars/Lounges, “Health Clubs,” Brothels, Yachts, Other “safe-from-the-public” havens, Washington, D.C.

FROM:  Thomas Joseph Coyne, MBA, Ph.D., (Financial Economist),;

SUBJECT:  Your individual and collective malfeasance in elected public office;  

OBJECT:  Call your attention to this fact:  you have failed to do the job you promised to do;     

PRESENT:  We grant you privileges in life for you to serve the public, not to exploit the public

PROPOSAL:  TERM LIMITS:  Because of your failure(s), citizens must never again vote for anyone in elected public office who has held that office for more than ten or twelve years, including you; 

ADVANTAGES:  Senators will be required to earn their money, not steal it.  No more ‘milking the system’ to become multi-millionaires at taxpayer expense.  Fairness, honor, dignity, integrity, patriotism, freedom from fear of government control of everyone and everything that move;

DISADVANTAGES:  Non-competitive bid contractors rewarded financially by you and from whom you receive financial kickbacks will no longer assure your reelection;

ACTION:  Surrender your goal to control everyone and everything that moves.  Remember the Alamo.  Evict illegal immigrants – but help legitimate immigrants, Balance the Budget. Remember Benghazi.  Protect our borders.  Cancel Obamacare.  Cancel the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Education – no longer indoctrinate, educate. Discontinue Department of Education knowingly uncollectible loans to unqualified alleged students so as to forgive the loans later for government-selected persons, selection to be based mostly on race, political voting records; Cancel the Department of Energy, and the Federal Income Tax.  Amend the Social Security Act of 1934.  Protect our Coal industry, coal miners & their pensions.  Protect our railroads. Protect our military, their families and pensions. Stop financing abortions.  Discontinue the practice of having government employees misuse government pension fund money by acquiring government ownership voting rights in otherwise private corporations.  Stop manipulating current stock market prices.  Discontinue expansion of fascism.  Fascism led to armed conflict when Mussolini and Hitler used it to gain and maintain power and control. Establish English as our national language. Create new medical schools. Eliminate gun control efforts.  Pass an Amendment to the Constitution forbidding taxation of one's primary residential real estate.  Renew space research and defense. Discontinue any notion of requiring any young American to "register" for military draft.

Veterans did not do what we did in World War II, in Korea, in Vietnam, in Iraq, in Kuwait, in Pakistan, in Afghanistan, elsewhere, and stand on lonely armed alert around the world to allow you to destroy this country as you are doing.  Stop it!  Your behavior is criminal! Reestablish FREEDOM.

Protect the Constitution of the United States of America, the greatest document ever reduced to writing.  Create a justice system (we have only a legal system currently).  Use your time to help, not hurt this wonderful country!  Protect our religious and personal freedoms, liberty, and thank God for it all. He has given you much. He expects and deserves much in return!


SUBJECT:   “Social Security in the United States of America:  A Positive and Profitable Cash Flow Device; a Powerful Political Control of People Tool” by Thomas J. Coyne, Ph.D. (Financial Economist), a condensed version. ©

OBJECT: When in doubt throw it out!  Government has proven inability or unwillingness to properly manage our Social Security Act of 1935, The Old-Age Survivors, and Disability (OASDI) and Medicare Hospital Insurance (HI) program/Act.  That legislation must be amended. 

PRESENT: When government gets too strong it forgets right from wrong! Social Security finances are controlled totally by government to the detriment of the Social Security member.  Currently, if a worker dies prior to his/her official Social Security retirement date government wrongly keeps all (100%) retirement money paid by him/her.  The proposal here is to end this practice!  This proposal guarantees individual workers benefit from their labor financially during their retirement, and assures their estate receives all money remaining after death, if any. 
PROPOSAL: Profit is not a dirty word; in fact, profit is a cost of doing business; besides, God helps those who help themselves! For bookkeeping purposes only we need to separate Social Security retirement payments from Disability and Supplemental Security Income payments.   

This Amendment requires government employees, as a condition of continued federal government employment, to administer an honest retirement plan, administer only, for each individual worker choosing responsibility for his/her retirement.  By this Amendment government assures specified routine payments into and out of the one’s retirement plan and disallows fraudulent withdrawals or contributions.  Transfers of retirement money from one investment adviser to another shall be properly protected.  Government shall establish and patrol, patrol only, a reliable retirement/survival plan/portfolio without making any of the investment or management decisions.  Each worker may retire at any time but s/he shall not be able to access his/her retirement portfolio money until attainment of age 62 or 65 or an age uniformly nationally agreed upon.  If one retires too early s/he may become a ward of the state. Supplemental Security Income recipients and Disability income recipients are on welfare, wards of the state. Social Security Income recipients are entitled to their money and are NOT on welfare. They are NOT wards of the state!

Each worker may have his/her personal retirement portfolio.  The worker or someone selected by the worker, someone other than a government employee, shall make all buy, sell, hold or trade decisions for common equity, bonds, real estate and/or other financial investments.  Should any worker die before he reaches retirement age money accumulated by him/her shall belong to the estate of the deceased.  No federal income tax shall be due or paid on the retirement portfolio at any time during the existence of the worker’s life, at his/her death, or by the estate of the deceased worker.  No FICA tax of 15.4%, more or less, shall be paid by or for a worker selecting to manage his/her personal retirement portfolio.  No deceased person’s money shall be absorbed into government or other coffers.  No retirement money in any worker’s portfolio may be borrowed by government for any reason at any time.  All retirement money accumulated in a worker’s portfolio shall be identified as the workers private property; competition from financial intermediaries shall be required with each investment adviser, if any, in writing, being required to diligently attempt to generate profit for each worker consistent with the degree of risk acceptable to the worker as done in ALL legitimate retirement plans in the USA. 

Any worker preferring to remain with the existing un-amended Social Security plan may do so.  Such person(s) shall be permitted to change his/her mind later; however, a person choosing responsibility for his retirement in accordance with this proposed Amendment may not change his/her mind later.  This  Amendment requires that no Supplemental Security payments, if any, and no Disability payments, if any, shall exceed the dollar amount of the average Social Security payments made to workers who choose to remain in the existing Social Security program.  Standard deviation statistics associated with average Social Security retirement payments to recipients shall not be considered in fulfilling this requirement.  If no person remains with the current system a maximum lid or ‘cap’’ shall be placed on Disability payments, if any, on Supplemental Security Income payments, if any.

No government employee and no mutual fund management, or Investment Bank, or commercial bank Trust Department person or group shall vote common equity proxies for any person remaining in the existing Social Security plan or for any person opting to manage his/her personal retirement portfolio under this Amendment.  No government employee shall have any influence whatsoever in selection and/or election of management personnel at any level of any publicly traded business for a worker holding financial instruments in his/her portfolio.  No one other than the worker or his non-government agent may vote proxies concerning matters before the firm in which the worker holds equity.  Government shall not enforce its policies and/or procedures at meetings for stock owners.  (Stock holders are not necessarily stock owners).  Government shall not be in direct or indirect control of any worker’s retirement income from equity, bonds, bills, or other assets held by the worker in publicly traded businesses.  Only publicly traded financial products and/or instruments, the price of which is routinely quoted in national or worldwide financial press, may be acquired and/or held for the retirement portfolio of (A) persons remaining in the existing Social Security program or (B) persons choosing to manage and own investments outright as part of their private property as prescribed herein. 

This amended Social Security Act identifies retirement money and all holdings in retirement portfolios as the private property of each worker.  No government agency or office or person shall interfere in any manner whatsoever with this private property, in accordance with Article IV of our Constitution.  Conditions conducive to accumulation of personal savings by a worker from his work is encouraged and supported by this Amendment.  Current governmental use of a worker’s retirement money until s/he retires is ended by this Amendment. 

Behavior contrary to specifics cited in this Amendment by any government or non-government person or group shall be identified as a criminal offense, by definition, against the worker and shall be punished accordingly.  Remember:  Freedom is not Free!

ADVANTAGES:  If an American worker earning $50,000 annually places only ten percent (10%) of it ($5,000) in his/her retirement portfolio, at only six percent (6%), for only thirty years (30) s/he would have an estate worth $395,290 (Future Value Factor of an annuity, 79.058, times $5,000, compounded @6% for 30 yrs.) at the end of those 30 years.  If s/he dies early family of the deceased has ownership of the money.  If s/he lives a normal life span the worker has significantly better retirement money.  Current Obama threats to discontinue sending Social Security recipients their entitled payments are nullified.  This Amendment ends current practice of government keeping for itself retirement money of all persons who die before official retirement age, 62 or lower.  FICA is gone with this Amendment.  Government persons are prohibited from voting common equity proxies belonging legally, morally and ethically to each worker, to each free citizen!
DISADVANTAGES: Specific financial information concerning alleged cost(s) to government of this proposal is unavailable at this writing; however, more than adequate money is available, not only to finance this proposal but, additionally, to solve the pension for coal miners problem created by professional politicians, both Republican and Democrat, the self-proclaimed “Ruling Class.”    
ACTION:  I will present this proposal from the floor of the U.S. Senate if I receive the votes of citizens in West Virginia allowing me to serve as their U.S. Senator (L.WV.), so help me God!  


The Economic Theory of John Maynard Keynes (pronounced: "Canes")

Without serious doubt or discussion John Maynard Keynes was the most influential economist of the 20th century. Franklin Delano Roosevelt had Keynes' picture hanging in the Oval Office, Adoph Hitler kept a picture of Keynes in his private Berlin office and Joseph Stalin did the same thing in Moscow, as did Winston Churchill near London.

Keynes died in 1946, exhausted, shortly after the long boat ride home to England following his participation in the post War II conference at Brenton Woods, New Hampshire where he, Keynes, started the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Marshall Plan. The Americans had arranged the meetings so as to leave little time for Keynes to speak. They were angry with Keynes' behavior as a member of the team arranging reparations in 1919: German punishment was in store for starting World War I and Americans were demanding heavy financial payments in 1919. Keynes resigned in disgust, went home and wrote "How to Pay for a War" in which he said Germany would be at war again in twenty years (20) if they had to pay for War I. (His thoughts became the defining blue print for creation of IMF, World Bank, and Marshall Plan). Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, conquering the previously disarmed Poles by October 10, 1939. It took only 40 days. When Keynes' turn finally arrived to speak in 1946, he stood, stoop shouldered and weary and addressed the stuned almost silent group with his knowledge of events and how to fix them. To this day in the 21st century (September 21, 2011) we hear of Keynes, mostly from life-long professional politicians, talk radio show and television personalities with each, in turn, embarassing themselves by revealing their lack of knowledge concerning Keynesian economics. Keynes did not preach socialism!

Briefly, Keynes correctly tells us this:

(1) Business cycles always exist in every economy, regardless of whether it is capitalist, socialist or communist;

(2) Every business cycle has four (4) stages: (A) expansionary stage, (B) upper turn, (C) contractionary stage, (D) lower turn;

(3) Growing economies in the USA ALWAYS enjoy many more months of expansion than months of contraction; and, importantly,

(4) During months of expansion (A) government receives, on average, more money than it needs currently. Government should not spend all the money it has at this time. Save something for the upcoming contraction, stage C. Government should hoard money during months of expansion (A) so as to have excess funds available for financial stimulus spending during months of contraction (C). "Stimulus" government spending is acceptable only once the upper turn (B) of the business cycle is reached and the economic contraction (C) begins. During the contractionary stage, C, and as close as possible to the lower turn (D), government should carefully study what spending would be proper on new and or better projects in preparation for the next contraction (recession) - (C); meanwhile, another espansion is taking place (A). In this manner government stabilizes the aggregate economy during expansions and contractions and has money also for emergencies and truly crucial new projects.

No long term debt is necessary at any time and remember: NO long term debt existed in the USA from its inception as a nation until the need arose to finance World War II. Unnecessarily, this nation has been in debt since that time. I, Thomas Joseph Coyne, Ph.D. as your U. S. Senator from West Virginia, would demand and obtain a balanced budget!

Socialists among us tell us to spend every penny we have from current taxation during each stage of the business cycle, and spend each penny we can borrow during each stage of the business cycle in order to provide "stimulus" to the economy during expansion and the upper turn and the contraction and the lower turn ignoring totally the need to generate a financial surplus. These same socialists use the name of Keynes, wrongly, to justify their behavior by concertrating almost solely upon the Keynes use of financial stimulus during brief contrationary stages of the normal business cycle, (C). Socialists are wrong to do so!


1.       Government Shutdown:  In October, 2013 government claimed ‘shutdown.’  Not so!  The federal government is on strike.  Government wants (A) more money and (B) socialist working conditions.  It is a simple labor relations problem.  I have handled similar problems - with ease.  I, as your U.S. Senator from West Virginia, would solve this problem quickly.
2.       Coal:  Hard working coal miners, some having 29 years in the pits, are threatened with loss of health care, loss of pensions, loss of jobs by government declaring “war on coal.”  Miners might have their homes foreclosed due to inability to pay real estate taxes.  This is a simple macroeconomic/microeconomic problem.  I have handled similar problems in the past.  I, as your U.S. Senator from West Virginia, would solve this problem quickly from the senate floor.
3.       Tolls.  Tolls are taxes and taxes pay for construction and upkeep of our Interstate highways.  States place a tax (toll) on top of, in addition to, the federal fuel tax.  This additional tax is wrong, especially since both West Virginia and Ohio have paid for their turnpikes totally, several times over.  This tax is a heavy burden to employed, unemployed veterans and other citizens. I, as your U.S. Senator from West Virginia, would solve this problem by making ALL Interstate highways free to all travelers – as promised by Dwight David Eisenhower – in the early 1950s.
4.       Veterans.  Disabled American Veterans, among other veterans, are suffering as government is threatening to hold their disability checks. Government is canceling surgeries in VA hospitals for purely political reasons.  Talk about unacceptable?  I, as your U.S. Senator from West Virginia, would support, create and work diligently towards a legitimate government shutdown the likes of which Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama II has never dreamed of seeing before tolerating such behavior on the part of government. Veterans from West Virginia and elsewhere did not fight in a foreign country to see themselves, their families and friends taxed out of their residences upon return home!
5.       Social Security.  Groundless threats are being made against senior citizens.  They might not be given their monthly checks?  They might not be entitled to their checks anyway they are told.  When government speaks that way to me, to my family, to my friends it is speaking to the wrong person!  I, as your U. S. Senator from West Virginia, would not tolerate such language originating from a U.S. President or ANYONE from official inside-the-beltway Washington, D. C. Older citizens are entitled to their pension money, in full, on time, with no threats!
6.       Other Government Stunts.  Phony social security threats, gun control efforts, out of control EPA, failure to defend our borders, failed public schools, failed energy efforts, serious shortage of M.D. physicians, no reestablishment of our space program, failed student loan(s) program, unnecessary maintenance of U.S. Military around the world, failed financial grants to sworn enemies, disgraceful fall of the U.S. dollar, misbehavior by Federal Reserve System leadership, lack of a balanced budget, desperate need for term limits, rediculous requirements to sign-up for the military draft upon attainment of age 18, necessary elimination of the federal income tax, abortion, no defense of the 2nd and 4th Amendments, obscene personal property taxes, disgraceful Obamacare, horrible Bureau of Prisons, continued failure to establish a National Language – American English, require that Tom Coyne be elected to the U.S. Senate from West Virginia.  I, as your U.S. Senator from West Virginia, would correct these stupid problems!  "The difference between genius and stupidity is genius has its limits” – Albert Einstein.   Together we can recapture our once-great nation.  I need help but seek only prayers, good will and your vote. I accept no money!


I, as your U.S. Senator from West Virginia, would cancel The Federal Income Tax. Our existing Internal Revenue Tax Code is the result of the 16th Amendment to our Constitution, passed on February 3, 1913. Experience over the last one hundred years, 1913 - 2013, reveals Amendment 16 has been badly misused and abused by life-long professional elected politicians. The abuse shall stop; besides, this country prospered handsomely for one hundred and thrity-seven years (137), from 1776 - 1913, with no income tax. We can and must do it again. I would help cancel Amendment 16 of the U.S. Constitution! Revenue from other sources is readily available.

Cancelation, in small part, will explain that inasmuch as we all play we all shall pay! No exemptions and no deductions! As with much if not most federal legislation, a very large number of persons have been made exempt from federal income tax; worse yet, IRS 501-c-3 tax free groups vote on taxation issues while being required to pay none of it. This self-serving wrong privilege shall change.

World Finance On June 9, 2013, The World Finance & Banking Symposium, Ministry of Education, Beijing, P.R. China accepted the Thomas J. Coyne, Ph.D. research paper: “Social Security in the United States of America: A Positive and Profitable Cash Flow Device; a Powerful Political Control of People Tool” for presentation to financial economists at its symposium in Beijing, China, December 16 – 17, 2013. A 'tourist' visa is unacceptable to the Chinese Embassy, NY. NY for presentation of this professional paper and I am told I MUST have a letter of invitation from "a Chinese person in position to write such a letter." The required letter has been promised several times but has yet to arrive. The Chinese do not accept electronic messages (email; fax) for this presentation and I need at least six (6) six weeks before departure for my required immunizations at the Cleveland Clinic. As of Octobe 6, 2013, I am within a hair of having to cancel my hotel and plane reservations; regardless, the reader and the world-at-large would benefit significantly by reading the paper, hyperlinked here, accepted for presentation by the Financial Economists. This paper reveals how to solve our Social Security problem: Click onto world_finance.


Workers,%20Government%20and%20Social%20Security%20Taxes.htm. If one million Americans die early because of ObamaCare “death squads” and these non-government workers spent 30 years working, but died before collecting Social Security benefits, the federal government stands to make a minimum collective economic profit on their deaths of $102,775,000,000.00. (Future Value of Annuity Factor @ 6% of WV level earnings, 30yrs.: (79,057 X $1,300 X 1,000,000). (Government always has kept 100% of all tax receipts when a worker dies before reaching retirement age). This governmental profit of one hundred and two billion, seven hundred and seventy-five million dollars is unearned income to government, concealed from West Virginians and the nation by life-long politicians. Social Security Taxation is very profitable – to government!

Government is too strong, has forgotten right from wrong. The USA’s “Ruling Class” exists through conspiracy between Democrat Party & Republican Party financiers. Professional life-long politicians have total control. Our successful capitalist system has been converted into a government/fascist state. (Fascism is a sophisticated form of socialism). The June, 2013 Timken (TKR) Corporation Board of Directors takeover by CALPERS (California Public Employees Retirement System) government employees is only the latest example.

(Tom took one client from only eleven dollars ($11.00) to six million dollars ($6,000,000.00)). See: appointment_of_investment_adviso.htm ; neither Tom Coyne nor anyone connected with his firm EVER solicits a client.

Freedom, Liberty and Democracy would benefit if we adopt the following four Constitutional Amendments, but one other point; American citizens live in fear of government and are not free. We existed well as a nation from 1776 until ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment to our constitution on February 3, 1913 - one hundred and thirty-seven years. We must become free again. With the 16th Amendment we granted government the right to tax us; however, government routinely exceeds and otherwise abuses its privilege to tax. Cancelation of the existing Tax Code in its entirety is necessary at this time! Watch this page for details concerning how to finance government after cancellation of the Tax Code.

(1) A 28th Amdment to the U. S. Constitution should read: “The term in elected public office shall not exceed a total of twelve years (2 terms) for a U.S. Senator; the term in elected public office shall not exceed a total of twelve years (6 terms) for any U. S. House of Representatives member.” (T. Coyne, (6/19/98).

(2) A 29th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should read: “No government or governmental unit shall impose a tax of any sort on the primary residential property of any citizen in the USA.” (T. Coyne, 3/17/03). See Commentary of January 25, 2005, Real Estate Property Taxes.htm See as well letter of July 6, 2007 to prosecuting attorney, Summit County, Ohio.

(3) A 30th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should read: “No vote of the people is valid if it consists of less than fifty percent of those persons eligible to vote.” (T. Coyne, 6/1/03).

(4) A 31st Amendment to the U. S. Constitution should read: “There shall be no taxation without representation.” (T. Coyne, 10/10/03). Non-city residents in Akron, Ohio and elsewhere throughout this country pay city income taxes as levied and collected by politicians for whom these same non-resident taxpayers are not permitted to vote, and to whom no accounting of money collected is ever made. Persons taxed do not live work or drive through the city of Akron but Akron collects and spends their tax payments.

Financial economist Thomas Joseph Coyne is a native of Wheeling, West Virginia, a graduate of Central Catholic High School.

Thomas Joseph Coyne earned his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree at Case Western Reserve University (Economics/Finance), his Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) from Kent State University (Management/Finance), his Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA) from Marshall University (Accounting/Economics). He completed his postgraduate work at the University of Chicago (Monetary Theory/Price Theory) and the University of Michigan (Computers).

As a full-time undergraduate student at Marshall University, Dr. Coyne worked full-time as a brakeman on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, graduating in three years time. He worked full time as industrial credit manager for The B. F. Goodrich Company while a graduate student at Kent State University, graduating in two years time. Coyne taught at Case and John Carroll and Kent State and Akron Universities while studying finance and economics at Case. While attending high school, Coyne rose from stock boy to floor manager and buyer at the J. C. Penney Company. Using his experience, age, education, and background, Coyne has contributed to solution of labor and management problems for decades. After writing his Master’s thesis: “Railroad Proposals for the Alleviation of their Financial Crisis” and receipt of his MBA, Tom worked with Cyrus Eaton at the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway as it acquired the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, (the combined railroad today is called CSX). Tom appeared before the Interstate Commerce Commission dealing with per diem rate cases of railroad cars. Tom is a licensed pilot. After writing his Ph.D. dissertation, receipt of the degree and having it published by the Legislative Services Committee and distributed by the Committee to each member of the House and Senate and administrative persons in West Virginia, entitled "Banking Structure in West Virginia," branch banking was adopted by the state of West Virginia. Prior to distribution of the Coyne dissertation West Virginia was the only unit banking state (NO branches allowed) in the nation.

Professor Coyne spent the bulk of his professional career teaching graduate and undergraduate courses (MBA) as a tenured full professor of finance and/or business economics at fully accredited (AACSB) universities. He has traveled extensively throughout Russia, Western Europe, and the United States, lecturing and presenting papers in finance and economics. He has negotiated countless multi-million dollar contracts for scores of American Boards of Education, has created and served as executive director of several foundations in the United States and Europe. Coyne grew financial and real assets for one group from only eleven dollars to $6.0 million before leaving.

Tom has been an active member in his church, in church institutions, and has published at least ten books or monographs, plus about one hundred peer-reviewed articles to be found in many academic & professional journals. His Arbitration Awards are published. Many written contributions have appeared in newspapers and online. Coyne is an arbitrator, serving from the lists of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. He completed the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon for Cancer Research (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006), and had a weekly one hour 50,000 watt call-in talk radio show broadcast simultaneously in Cleveland, and Youngstown, Ohio. Tom is an honorably discharged U.S. Army combat infantry veteran, having served with L Company, 180th Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Division, Sandbag Castle, Korea, receiving the Korean Service Medal with 2 Bronze Service Stars, the United Nations Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge (CIB), the Good Conduct Medal, a Letter of Appreciation signed by Kim Dae-jung, President of the Republic of Korea, and The President Syugman Rhee Memorial Association 60th Anniversary Korean War 1950-2010 Medallion.

Tom sought the U.S. Senate seat Ohio (I) being vacated by Howard Metzenbaum, 1994. Ohio Secretary of State (Taft) denied Coyne placement of the Coyne name on the ballot claiming inability to read any of the 11,000 (approx.) properly prepared signed and printed petition signatures).

Tom sought the Office of Governor West Virginia (I), 2004. WV Secretary of State (Manchin) refused to provide Coyne with appropriate petition forms subsequent to which in Wheeling Federal District Judge Frederick P. Stamp, Jr. declared from his bench WV violated previous (2 years prior) Federal District Court orders of Judge Kelley requiring WV to provide proper petition forms, that WV should have provided Coyne with proper petition forms, but in his written Award Stamp reversed himself and found in favor of WV. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Hubbs Rehnquist was at his residence outside Washington, D.C. studying Coyne’s appeal of the questionable Judge Stamp “award” the night Rehnquist died. Tom never heard another word concerning his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court!

Thomas Joseph Coyne, Ph.D., was formerly married to Patricia Anne Smith, R.N., of Huntington and together they proudly raised their five children, all of whom are college-educated. Tom and Pat have twelve grandchildren. Tom plans to take the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jay Rockefeller (D.WV) in the election of November 4, 2014.
