How We Got Here

Image may contain: 1 person, meme and text

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! If you are interested in an honest and factual account of the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the 14th Amendment, join the Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association (CCTA) on Monday evening, September 19 at 7:00 pm at the Stanley Ballroom, 305 Pollock St, in New Bern. Speakers will be John Ainsworth and Cliff Muncy of AMERICA’S REMEDY.

John is the founder of America’s Remedy, a non-partisan educational think tank, whose focus, through education and legal activism, is to re-establish America and her demi-sovereign states on a free and Constitutional foundation. As a strong advocate of lawful, constitutional government, and passionate in his service to see America re-claimed, John took two years off of work in 1995 to research America’s derailing. John has over 19 years of study and has been involved in over 15 court cases. In 1997, John was involved in re-establishing the de jure state of North-Carolina. He has hosted and co-hosted a number of television and radio programs, and he has had numerous speaking engagements across the eastern U.S.

John Ainsworth poses the question —Did National Citizenship Eliminate State Rights?

Where state-rights and a limited federal government are desirable, is it counter-productive that Americans participate in a national form of citizenship? Was citizenship always a national concept? Is it our own unquestioning patriotism and participation in national U.S. citizenship which prevents us from having states which can act free of national “indefinite supremacy”?

Black’s Law defines a state as a “self-sufficient body of persons, united together in one community for the protection of their rights”. With this information in mind, let’s ask ourselves — What happened to our sovereign states? What are these states we have today, and for whom were they created

Join the CCTA as Reconstruction historian and legal activist John Ainsworth sheds new light on our history, to reveal a specific, pivotal transformation that occurred to our system of government which eliminated the concept of state-loyal, state citizens from the American political landscape.

Wilderness Medicine Class

Wilderness Medicine
Emergency Management in the High-Risk Low-Resource Environment

October 6-8, 2017
Murphy, NC

By definition, “wilderness” is based on the concepts of emergency care when separated from definitive care by distance, time, or circumstance. That situation could easily be the backcountry, another snowpocalypse, civil unrest, or an active shooter incident; all situations in which medical help may not be readily available.

Wilderness Medicine is training in emergency medicine for people who aren’t professionals and forms the basis for our tactical medic program. The training consists of an informal meet and greet on Friday evening followed by two days of lecture, discussion, hands-on and scenario-based practice of skills.

Our goal is to provide you with an assessment process that is simple, easy to understand, and one that does not require you to purchase everything from an ER catalog. Rather, the class provides you with a roadmap to address life-threatening injuries in the proper order and one that ensures the best possible outcome for yourself and your patient.

All courses are taught by professional educators and experienced medical providers who will work to make sure that you leave class with the information and skills needed to react with confidence. Learn to respond to medical emergencies, treat injuries and illnesses, and improvise solutions in a high-risk low-resource environment.

The cost of the course is $200 and advanced, full-payment is required to reserve a seat in class. Due to limited class enrollment, payment is non-refundable. Rescheduling will be allowed for the next available class only if space is available. Cancellation on the day of the class is considered a “no show.”

Payment can be made via PalPay at or by check to:
