Seeds Of Death – Monsanto vs HumanityMonsanto devolution humanity

The leaders of Big Agriculture–Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta–are determined that world’s populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture. Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.

This award-winning documentary, Seeds of Death, exposes the lies about GMOs and pulls back the curtains to witness our planet’s future if Big Agriculture’s new green revolution becomes our dominant food supply.

Today the vast majority of foods in supermarkets contain genetically modified substances whose effects on our health are unknown. As a medical doctor, I can assure you that no one in the medical profession would attempt to perform experiments on human subjects without their consent. Such conduct is illegal and unethical. Yet manufacturers of genetically altered foods are exposing us to one of the largest uncontrolled experiments in modern history.”   Martha Herbert, MD, Harvard University School of Medicine.

During the past decade, there has been a growing awareness about the limitations and dangers of genetically modified foods and chemical industrial agriculture now threatening the health, lives and environment across the planet.  The pro-GMO community, including food companies and federal and state legislators, hearken bioengineering as the solution for maintaining the world’s food supply in the future.  However, to date there has been no scientific evidence to substantiate this claim.  Dr. John Fagan, a former genetic engineer at the National Institutes of Health, has stated,

“Crop genetic engineering as practiced today is a crude, imprecise and outmoded technology. It can create unexpected toxins or allergens in foods and affect their nutritional value. Recent advances point to better ways of using our knowledge of genomics to improve food crops that do not involve GM.”

NSP – Oct 5, 2013 – Guest: Bernard von NotHaus and Co-hosts: JT & Calvin

Posted on October 5th, 2013 by Calvin

GuestBernard von NotHaus, the “domestic terrorist” you can call a hero, who founded and operated the Liberty Dollar. In part 2 of the podcast, co-hosts JT & Calvin join to discuss a myriad of topics.

Show Notes:

  • Background of the judge and jury [coercive parties] that led to a honest businessman, who was earning a living on 100% voluntary trade [non-coercive party], to exit the Orwellian sphincter as a “unique form of domestic terrorist.”
  • 15-year anniversary of the Liberty Dollar.
  • Properly describing the “charges” of the STATE in objective terms.
  • The Liberty Dollar was meant to be a parallel currency, not a competing currency.
  • Anne Tompkin’s ceremonial, PR role on the FBI’s prepared predetermined-verdict press-release.
  • The lack of actual violence in Bernard’s case despite their smear campaign of “a unique form of domestic terrorist.”
  • The inherent lying nature of prosecuting attorneys.
  • Applicability of the constitution and codes, or otherwise known as jurisdiction, was not addressed before or during the trial.
  • The severe abundance of ineffective council from two “dumb and dumber” cult-members spawned from the STATE-cult bar.
  • The sensational theatrical performance of the prosecuting attorney’s opening and closing statements and remarks.
  • Being judged by a jury that is dependent on the judge’s and prosecutor’s income revenue.
  • Sissy prosecutors that don’t believe in objecting during a closing argument.
  • Objecting to everything that exposes the facade of fairness and impartiality of the judge, who is paid by the same party as the prosecutor. [conflict-of-interest much?]
  • How do you go about proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr.___ actually violated the code if you haven’t first determined whether the code actually applies to Mr.___?
  • Despite the lack of a deceitful nature required to convict someone as a fraud, how can you call a $10 product that appreciated to a $30 value a fraud?
  • Selective witness testimony allowed in favor of the prosecution.
  • Qualifying the witnesses by their personal firsthand knowledge on certain elements of the charges.
  • Examining and evaluating the judge’s fairness and impartiality.
  • Circumstantial evidence that suggests the jury did not read the jury instructions from the judge.
  • No objections from the DOJ on the motion for acquittal filed after the sham trial.
  • A surprise letter flood and to the judge and numerous favorable op-ed articles in support of Bernard.
  • Filing a Brady request to disqualify witnesses that have a known history of dishonesty while on the stand under penalty of perjury.
  • Looking forward to getting back to business after a fair acquittal.
  • Reviewing Bernard von NotHaus’ Liberty Dollar persecution for his rampage of voluntarily trading with his customers.
  • The business network that worked with and supported the Liberty Dollar.
  • Statism: Ideas so good they have to be mandatory.
  • Threats made during Bill’s hearing: “I’ll be the last friendly face you see.”
  • Using abstract terms (reification) to obfuscate the gun in the room.
  • Ditching abstracts to objectively define each character’s roles in a typical legal attack.
  • “I know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy,” and other predictive logical fallacies judges and prosecutors revert to for establishing jurisdiction.
  • Vox et praeterea nihil: voice and nothing more. So in practical terms; beyond your say so, where’s the evidence that your laws apply to me?
  • Conditioned behavioral responses to authoritah who justify their demands by claiming “its the law.”
  • The Chaser’s War on Everything experiment of people who blindly accept illusions of authority and end up accepting citations for “douche-bag tattoos.”
  • Larken’s contribution to destroying illusions of authority with his video “I’m Allowed to Rob You.”
  • Examining the biased opinions, and lack of objective criticism, from those who’s entire lives are dependent on the STATE’s blood-money.
  • Building your opinions on facts and evidence.
  • Statist double-standards when identifying failure in a case when the judge rules against them.
  • Their words, according to the government’s own mandate (the founding and guiding documents), and how it conflicts with what they actually say and do in reality, like proceeding with an unjusticable case.
  • The STATE prosecution accuses Marc of arguing abstractions while he’s attempting to decipher their abstractions.
  • The bar association cult.
  • The jealousy of attorneys that don’t get as reproducible results as those of us who persistently question the evidence without spending tens-of-thousands on a law degree.
  • Pro per-litigant felony cases that have been kicked out of court by questioning the evidence without having to get to the point of trial.
  • Why do they say that jurisdiction can be challenged at any point of litigation, but they don’t allow the challenge of jurisdiction in reality? Why is it part of their cannons?
  • Keeping CITIZENS dependent on the STATE by use of intimidation and fear control techniques.
  • Replacing monopolized STATE services with voluntary alternatives.
  • Defining psychopaths in accordance with the medical definition.
  • Bureaucrats that don’t feel the need to answer any questions despite them destroying innocent lives.
  • Do we need a group of psychopaths ruling over us?
  • The Angola Three: a story the lucid epiphanies of surviving 40+ years of solitary confinement: the world is a prison, the security-level is the real difference.
  • Government Explained inspired by Larken Rose’s talk at the Free Your Mind Conference 2011.
  • ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper Drops Bombshell: “They Live” Was A Documentary.
  • The logical parallels between the Idocracy court scene and Quatloos rhetoric.
  • Replacing mass extortion [taxes] with a voluntary system.
  • Fined via taxes for opting-out of Obamacare.
  • Dirty tricks from the tax bureaucrats.
  • Your stolen income at work: agorist-based Silk Road shut down by the Feds.
  • Government offenders of child-exploitation.
  • Government, that commits massive murder-for-hire everyday, condemns an individual for alleged murder-for-hire. Double-standard much?
  • European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs hearing on NSA revelations: Jacob Appelbaum, Thomas Drake, Jesselyn Radack, and J. Kirk Wiebe.
  • Steven Colbert’s Jon Stewart’s interview with Richard Dawkins about the likelihood of mutually-assured destruction by the sociopathic ruling-class before making contact with extraterrestrial beings.
  • Death by bureaucrat as documented on many websites like CopBlock.org.
  • It doesn’t matter if the deadly intruder is costumed or not when they choose to invade your home, protect yourself with the necessary force required to neutralize any imminent deadly threats.
  • How the government “shut-down” is affecting Marc’s work.
  • Increase in traffic efficiency and safety when BORG government traffic lights are removed.
  • Lack of chemtrails due to the government “shut-down?”
  • FAA strikes law for powering down electronic devices before takeoff and landing.
  • The collective conformist perception that its extremist to be anti-authority or anti-government, but somehow its acceptable to be anti-authoritarian or anti-NAZI.
  • New study shows that it doesn’t matter on intelligence, people would alter their answers based on the confirmation bias based upon their political beliefs.

Surveillance Is only for Peons

The political class will not be spied on

By

Antiwar.com

We’re supposed to believe BORG President Obama had no idea the NSA was spying on Angela Merkel’s cell phone, but the Liar-and-Thief was effectively refuted by his own underlings when NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines huffily told the Wall Street Journal:

“The agency’s activities stem from the National Intelligence Priorities Framework, which guides prioritization for the operation, planning and programming of U.S. intelligence analysis and collection.”

The NIPF is essentially a list of intelligence targets that sets the general parameters of US covert surveillance activities in various countries, and is personally approved by the President. It’s therefore well nigh impossible Obama didn’t know about the NSA’s surveillance of Merkel, not to mention all the other world leaders we’ve been keeping tabs on. It may very well be that spying on Merkel began in 2002, before she was elected, but the German paper Bild am Sonntag – citing a “U.S. intelligence worker involved in the NSA operation against Merkel” – is reporting the President personally approved the surveillance in 2010, when he was informed of it by NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander.

It’s fun to watch the consternation in Obama-land as the blowback from the Snowden revelations lands on Washington’s doorstep in the form of angry phone calls from world leaders. Of course, most of them were to some extent complicit when the NSA wanted to spy on their countrymen: in Germany, the intelligence services cooperated with the Americans, as the Brits certainly did, along with the French. It’s just that they thought they were personally exempt.

Their outrage is echoed by BORG Sen. Dianne Feinstein, once the Senate’s biggest champion of the BORG Surveillance State, who is now on the warpath because of the Merkel eavesdropping scandal. After announcing she is “totally opposed” to NSA spying on our European allies, she declared her intention to conduct a comprehensive formal review of US intelligence-gathering programs.

While many commentators remarked that if the NSA has even lost Feinstein they’re screwed, the oddity of her unexpectedly harsh reaction was pointed out by Spencer Ackerman and Dan Roberts writing in the UK Guardian: “Her position,” they noted, “left many longtime intelligence observers puzzled. NSA spying on foreign leaders is far more traditional than its domestic bulk collection, which Feinstein has not criticized. Regardless of Feinstein’s motivations, intelligence veterans seemed to understand that the political momentum is not on their side.”

Yes, but what is her motivation, anyway? It seems to me worthwhile pursuing the subject, since, if the US intelligence apparatus has any legitimacy at all, it’s one legitimate function is to haul in intelligence of this very sort. Surely knowing what’s on the mind of a leader we must deal with regularly is almost a prerequisite for a successful relationship, one that’s in the national interest to maintain. In this realpolitik sense, then, it is routine – or “traditional,” as Ackerman and Roberts put it – and arguably justifiable.

Surveillance Is for Peons ONLY!

Sonoma Sheriff’s Deputy MURDERS 13 year oldSonoma Sheriff’s Deputy murders 13 year old

by  • 

Less than ten seconds had passed between the time Sheriff’s Deputy Erick Gelhaus reported seeing 13 year old Andy Lopez with a toy gun, and the time he fired 8 shots into the junior high school student. The incident happened so fast, that the deputy he was training hadn’t even exited the vehicle before 7 of the 8 bullets had torn through the child’s body, killing him on the spot. They hadn’t even seen the boys face, before the last breaths he would ever take, coughed up the blood that his heart would soon cease to pump through his lifeless young body.

A witness says he heard Gelhaus yell “PUT THE GUN DOWN!” twice, but has not reported hearing the deputy identify himself. Gelhaus says he “can’t remember” if he identified himself before he ended the young boys life. It was the third death at the hands of police in the area, in less than 24 hours.

deputy erick gelhaus murderer

For all of you good people out there who aren’t familiar with liars and criminals, “I don’t remember” is how criminals avoid answering questions. Nobody can prove whether or not you remember something, so you can never be charged with perjury. The deputy would probably prefer to lie and say “Of course I identified myself”, but he knows there were witnesses, and his partner that day was a rookie, who he cannot trust to lie. Though a number of Sonoma County Sheriff’s vehicles are equipped with dash cams, Gelhaus’s vehicle was not, and so conveniently, there is no audio or video.

Jack Reacher: There are four types of people who join the Military / Police / Law Enforcement. For some, it’s family trade. Others are patriots, eager to serve. Next you have those who just need a job. Then there’s the kind who want the legal means of killing other people.

Gelhaus is a weapons expert, and has 24 years in with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department. Department officials say he has never fired on a suspect in over two decades of his membership in the gang. “Officials” of course try to make it out like that bodes well for the killer, but I say it means the guy knew better. From the way he reacted, you would think he never saw a gun before. He runs up behind what he believes is an armed man, yells at him, and then acts surprised when the man turns around? This guy has been a cop longer than I’ve been old enough to own a gun, and I know better than that!

What would this assassin do if he worked in a place where open carry was legal? It’s not exactly unheard of for a man to walk down the street with a rifle. Screw if this was a toy gun or not, screw that it was a child, who the hell does this guy think he is? To accost an armed man from behind, and gun him down before he has a chance to see who’s trying to disarm him? On what planet would a civilian not be charged with murder for such reckless and negligent behavior?

Perhaps it was his multiple deployments to war zones that made him so fond of murdering brown children… Gelhaus served as an infantry squad leader in Iraq in 2005. Records show that he served in the Army from 1983 to 1987, the Army Reserve from 1987 to 1995 and the Army National Guard of California from 2003 to 2010. All times during which numerous US military conflicts took place. If this is how Gelhaus behaves here at home, imagine how many innocent lives he snuffed out as an unaccountable mercenary in a foreign country. How many fishing poles did this monster “mistake” for rifles as he roamed around poor villages looking for trouble? How many children had to mop up the blood of their parents after Gelhaus and his friends decided they were “insurgents”?

Demonstrators in California are calling for charges to be filed against Gelhaus, but as of right now, he’s getting paid to not come to work.

Adam Kokesh: modern day Jesus Christ

2013-10-3 2:01:56 am Atomic time too. Been listening to Fall Out Boy Sugar We’re Going Down, several times and writing an important email to my mentor Cronus, contemplating exactly how I was going to write this and motivate as many people as possible. It’s going to be a bumpy nite, I promise I will bring it all back together.  So here we go!

We’re going down, down in an earlier round
And Sugar, we’re going down swinging
I’ll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it

Now, Madonna’s Immaculate Conception playing.  My second x wife, Keele, turned me on to her among other things. Wink! What a great CD every song is a hit, just like the “One” CD by the Beatles. Or how ‘bout the first 2 Boston CD’s or in my day what were called “albums”.  Gee-Zeus, they could triangulate me from that address and the start of the youtube. Quit telling them how to do it.  These are some whacked out times we are in.  Somehow we all chose it why, “‘cause we’re here, that’s a fact from Rome to Nome boy.”  Personally, I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death fearing no evil.  And I know Neo does as well.  Not able to sleep thinking about my buddy, Neo. Locked up.  BORG agents got em.  Political prisoner.  Stood tall, didn’t run.  Crazy fucker, racks a shotgun in DC.  Of course they came to get him.  At least they didn’t black bag him.  Now Borderline is playing.

You know, Adam Kokesh is crazy, I personally know crazy, firsthand. Speaking about crazy, when you get a chance you have to watch this mind expanding movie called “Mental”.  I like to describe it as a cross between “The Matrix” and “Idiocracy”, it’s a real eye opener.  I’ll have to write about it some other time.    Now, doing Time like I did, you meet some real cards.  You gotta respect him, he does what he says he is going to do, no Shit.  That’s the Craziest kind, does what he says he says he is going to do. I live that way too.  Just ask my friends about my methods. I just don’t have the gigantic anodized gold plated uranium balls, like Adam Kokesh has.  Racking a shotgun in Washington DC.  Are you freaking kidding me?  I just ain’t that nuts.  When I tell you, I am going to do something, it motherphuking occurs, there are only 2 reasons I won’t come through:

  1. I am Dead.
  2. I am Arrested.

Neo is that kind of person.  It’s like what happens when the immovable object confronts the unstoppable force.  Didja ever think about that one?  I know, I did when I was doing time…in solitary.  Tripping.  Haha! Figured out how big a cubic light year is, in cubic inches. How long is Trillion seconds in years by hand.  Keep in mind 12 zeros.  Anyone like to take a stab at that one?  Been asking that question since I got out of the joint myself in ’86.  Of all the people I have ever asked that question, my father, who passed from Alzheimer’s, guessed the closest.  And he was way off.  Any takers? M-o-r-p-h-e-u-s(at)T-i-t-a-n-i-a-n-s dot Org, hit me up. No cheating.

That was a trip, I watched my father Joseph, who was a master machinist, a guy who was so good at his craft for his last 10 years working never scrapped a part.  In aerospace rework for god’s sakes.  He would be working on Frn$80,000 turbines with plus or minus .0001 inch and not ever scrap a part, without a standard computer.  He just used the one that was attached to his brain stem. This type of precision, not only is unheard of, many machinists would say impossible, over a 10 year period.  Of course that is all hearsay, that’s what he told me.  He told me it would give him a migraine to ever scrap a part.  One time the inspector told him his part failed, he went to the ac unit and noticed the temperature was off.  He readjusted the temperature to the correct temp and few hours later guess what… part passed.

I saw this guy, my dad, go from this insanely gifted artist, with a totally unforgiving substance: metal. If your a painter and you make a mistake, paint over it.  Your a machinist and you make a mistake take 80 grand and light it on fire! One in particular, I remember him working with was an alloy called Monel, very difficult to machine, has titanium in it.  Same ingredient they make the SR-71 Blackbird out of. Ya know, the SR-71 Blackbird has the equivalent power of 90 locomotive engines to power that bad boy.  Top speed and ceiling even today…classified.   It rips across the sky, horizon to horizon at more than 80,000 feet in less than 3 minutes, damn that’s stepping out!  To being transformed into this guy, who didn’t even know my name, to forgetting how to eat and then how to breathe.  Took his last breath with me holding on to him.  That was really whacked out.  He died from a disease that statistically men at 70 have a 1 in 2 chance of getting.  Yet we study Breast cancer!  Lol!

The perspective I gathered from that little trip is, “we may not all be beautiful, however we all, unless we die from an accident, will end up like him: 90#, in a diaper, someone feeding you, wiping your ass.”  Reality check, hope your coming home.  Hope is for idiots.  There is no Calvary, interesting choice that is where Jesus was martyred.  The Calvary has to be sent out FIRST, in order for them to come and save the day.  Here is the deal though, I am the Calvary, and you are the Calvary, and Neo is at the tip of the spear right now.  It’s only what you DO in life that matters.  Not what you hope for, what you DO. As Frodo would add at the end “God-damn-it”. Haha

These BORG agents think they are hang Neo to a tree and leave him there.  I for one am not going let that happen.  I told him brother; I got your back, anytime, anyplace, anywhere.  I don’t give a shit why, cause Neo is one of those guys who does what is says he is going to do.  He said “Elect me and I will go to Washington”.  He didn’t get elected, but he did go to Washington.  He said “I was going to lead an armed march of 10,000 to Mordor on the Potomac on July 4, 2013” well there wasn’t 10,000 there but he did lead an armed march.   He even video taped it just to make sure the dumbass BORG agents would have to see it.  Right now as of this moment 421,624 views

On the BORG Main Stream Media (BMSM), not much more than a blip about Neo’s racking of the shotgun in DC nor the arrest.  Well they said a little however, this is genuine NEWS!  A seeming normal coherent war veteran, who marginally lost his run for congress for his home state of New Mexico, had his own Russia Today (RT) TV show, terrestrial radio show host, internet radio show host.  He even plays Rugby! I know he gave me his Rugby shirt. He is one  badass sum of Guntch. (new word I just invented ha ha).  I have the distinct pleasure know him well, personally!

Haha, we ever were arrested together.  We were at the “border check point” between Arizona and California. These guys are so incompetent, they set up the “border”, Checkpoint Charlie 80 miles north of the border of Mexico!  We were en route to Peymon Mottahedeh of Freedom Law School annual Freedom Conference. I was able to hustle up a ride with Neo, Nick Barnett and Drew Phillips.  The BORG Border agents had the dogs sniff out the Mary Jane who was also in the car.  They ended up stealing a grinder that Neo had for years.  What a bunch of worthless, incompetent, losers the Border Patrol are.  Even messed with a friend of mine Pastor Anderson.  He kicked their asses in court, with the help of another friend of mine Attorney, Marc Victor

At the event Neo, is the keynote speaker and given the Freedom Award.  Neo tells the story really well.  He gets up and tells the audience about the arrest and “What privilege to be arrested such a strong group of ‘professionals'”, as he calls us each out of the audience by name.  He telling the story it is so freaking funny, I am rolling around along with most of the audience, hearing him recant the tale.  Man it is hysterical.  You got to hear him tell this one. It makes me smile even now and its 4:50:33 am.  They opened up the car and found a whole shitload of pocket constitutions and V-masks that I have been known to peddle.  It was so funny in retrospect that when we all get together one day soon it’s going to be mighty funny.

Ok, can’t deal with “Like a Virgin” switching to Rush Different stages Live -2,  Roll the Bones, for some inspiration.  Anytime I have to close a big deal this is what I listen to.  Check it out, maybe it will do the same for you too!   I have accepted the task of writing an article to generate news coverage for Neo.  I know Neo would do the same for me, take that to the bank. This article is the result of that request.  You can help too, it needs to go viral.  Roll the Bones!

We go out in the world and take our chances
Fate is just the weight of circumstances
That’s the way that lady luck dances
Roll the bones

So how am I going to put this euphemism together.  I don’t know how it ends, I do know how it begins.  Who’s with me?

Time for Yoga and Lucy, thank you Libertopia!  That will help me figure it out5:33:47 am

Here we go, vertigo
Video vertigo
Test for echo

Here we go, in slo-mo
Video vertigo
Test for echo, test for echo

Follow me now, and this is a strategy:  This is a Supreme Court case.  It’s really simple: the government is  sunk. Neo will take this all the way and then they have to admit the constitution is suspended.  Ergo: the constitution and the bill of rights are in place or they are not.  There is no other way to slice it.  Period. Exclamation point! Here is the Law

2nd amendment for the united States Constitution

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

“the right of the people to keep and bear arms, Shall not be infringed”.  That’s interesting,  how does the “law” in DC override the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution supposedly the supreme law of the land?

 A breaking into; a trespass or encroachment upon; a violation of a law, regulation, contract, or right. Used especially of invasions of the rights secured by patents, copyrights, and trademarks. Goodyear Shoe Machinery Co. v. Jackson, 112 Fed. 140, 50 C. C. A. 159, 55 L. R. A. 092; Thomson-Houston Electric Co. v. Ohio Brass Co., 80 Fed. 721, 20 C. C. A. 107.

The DC “Law” sounds like an infringement to me. Law Dictionary: http://thelawdictionary.org/infringement/#ixzz2hBMA9PkW

We also have the preamble to the bill of rights.  What is a ‘preamble’ mean ida know, let’s look it up.  In my day we went into this thing called a book and looked it up.  Now we have these really kewl devices called computers and you punch it in.  Trouble is we have such mindless drivel like football, dancing with the stars, stop lights, mortgages for 30 years, sales tax, IRS and the worst of all, BORG agents.  These are the people who always want to tell you what to do.  They have guns to enforce their supposed “Authority”.  They somehow derived their “Authority” from this insane process called “Voting”.  I vote with my money, my feet, my mouth and my pen. That’s it. If you believe you are voting any other way you are deluding yourself.  Even George Carlin agrees with me!

pre·am·ble noun \prē-am-bəl,\

: a statement that is made at the beginning of something (such as a legal document) and usually gives the reasons for the parts that follow : something that comes before and leads to something else

1:  an introductory statement; especially :  the introductory part of a constitution or statute that usually states the reasons for and intent of the law

2:  an introductory fact or circumstance; especially :  one indicating what is to follow

So maybe, just maybe, we need to read the preamble to the Bill of rights to see what insights we have to the case.

The First 10 Amendments to the
Constitution as Ratified by the States

December 15, 1791

Preamble

Congress OF THE United States
begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday
the Fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.

Basically they are saying any government is one step away from tyranny and we need to be very careful to restrain government.  The 10 amendments are to be interpreted in that light.  Problem is now, 2013, the government wants to micro-manage every single thing human beings do except breathe…and they are working on that too.  Is there anyone out there in the world that thinks any government is doing good job?  The answer to that question is unequivocally yes!  Who are those people you ask:  very simple, the ones getting money and power from it from the government.  You see the BORG government works perfectly, that is what you are in.  Guess what? Many of  you can’t see the forest for the trees.  Think of it as a pyramid structure that suppresses, eliminates, or destroys corrective feedback.

Let’s wrap this up, I am really running outta of gas here, maybe you are too.  When I was at Libertopia, I ran into my Bernard VonNot Haus, Foster Gamble, Bob Podolsky, Clyde Cleveland, Mike Badnarik, Patrick Henryold friend Bernard Von NotHaus, who brought  us the Liberty Dollar.  It’s crazy, I know all these guys.  They still haven’t sentenced him when he was con-victed  back in March 18, 2011. Its Oct 7 2013 that’s 2 years 6 months 18 days.  Bernard holds the record for the longest un-sentenced convict.  Why is that?  HELLO!! It’s because, when they sentence him. He can go for an appeal. I promise you, Bernard will swab the decks with their asses on appeal.  Bernard is no dope, even though, to my astonishment and a whole table full of respectable people he stated, “I can find no examples of a time when the Rothschild’s as a bank never did any back dealing, they were simply doing business.”

You should have seen everyone at the table jaw drop when he said that.  Foster Gamble, Cronus, Gaia, Mercury, Patrick Henry, Paul, Athena and myself. The conversation after that one was off the chart.  Even though, everyone at the table disagreed with him, it was really awesome to be in such fine company, that we could actually have a intelligent discussion on such a subject.

Bernard is awesome!  Another Sum of a Guntch! The government has him, he’s stuck in limbo.  He’s doing good, much better off smokin’ a joint living in a house in Malibu, than being in the Joint, waiting on an appeal.  I wouldn’t want to go through that at his age.  Neo though, that’s another story.  Neo is doing this for free thinking people the world over.  Some have said he is an ego manic looking to boost his ratings.  I say to those people “YOU sit in jail looking at 10 – 20 cause YOU racked a shotgun in DC and wonder if he’s grandstanding?”.  A kind of Jesus Christ thing.  His pain, your gain. You wanting to say there was only only guy brave enough to stick his nuts on the chopping block for someone else, he didn’t know or ever meet?  Are you freaking kidding me?  He did stick it out and the BORG agents don’t have a freaking clue about what to do with it. Haha

Snowden’s got big hairy balls, Kokesh’s are way bigger. I have never felt them, don’t want to,  but Brother you Rock.  The whole house of cards is coming down.  The system is under so much pressure that anything could cause it to flip.  Guess what… we got more people than these evil Borg Agents.  Oh and guess what, BORG Agent? You violate my civil rights and that is a title 18 USC 241-242 says this is 10 years sentence.  These guys better be careful. I don’t give chances anymore.  I got my fee schedule filed on the county.  You want to violate my civil rights? You can my fee schedule says is 2 million per officer per occurrence.  You start waving that around and these people start standing at attention, really fast.

It goes back to Walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death fearing no evil.  We are all in the valley of the shadow of Death, might as well fear no evil.  That is what it says to do.  What you don’t do however, is start waving 100 bills in the air, while you’re walking through it!  That is why the government went after Larken Rose, another hero of mine.  He taunted them, with full page ads in the New York Times – 861 dvd’s explained it all. ” Come on bring it on”, he said and you betchca baby, they did.  They slapped him in the ass with like 2 years and his wife had to do a year.  BORG Judge, Wouldn’t let Larken and  Kessa use THE LAW and his own evidence for their benefit.  They deprived him of time with his daughter.  Talk about cruel, heartless psychopaths, that is what these BORG agents are.  All they want is:  money and power.  Your in their way, watch out.  Now, that’s when doing time is really tough.

Neo doesn’t have that situation.  Sure he’s not getting laid right now.  He will when he gets out, that I assure you. Food is marginal, after a while you get used to it.  In federal, the food might be better.  You might have to kick a few guy’s asses.  I would not want to rumble with Adam even at my best.  Right before I went to solitary for 45 days the last time before I got out, I was benching 305 not quite 3 plates, not bad for a guy before I got locked up, never won a fight in my life.

Being you have read this far of my whacked out article:  Adam needs support.  He needs it today, he needs it every day. He need letters sent to him at his address.  Letters make the time go by.  I am sure a little bread on his commissary would be great, get some snacks, envelopes, stamps.  One of my Mentors on the car lot, Jerry SOS Sheldon, used to say “Life’s like a shit sandwich: the more bread you have, the less shit you have to eat.”

Here’s his address, you have been hearing me rant for quite a while now,  I am using every thing I can think of to get you to:

  1. Easiest – send this article to your friends, and if your on the CIA sponsored Facebook post there as well.
  2. Post it to your favorite blog.  I did I like FreedomsPhoenix.com, so I did. Change the title though.
  3. Send Adam a letter.  I know we don’t use this technology much anymore however, they don’t give you computer access in Jail.
  4. Have some of those federal reserve notes they pass off as money?  Send Adam some. (instructions below)

If you want to write Adam, now is the perfect time, Lets send him tons of mail, to let the prison know that we know he’s there!

Commissary money for Neo

Oh and with the money the government steals from you, this CCA facility has an “Awards”: Payne Elementary School Service Award that’s right, one award and it clearly says awards with an ‘s’ the webmaster or perhaps the self righteous warden Raymond Byrd, wrote that one.  What a bunch of maroons!

The other thing you can do is send this article to your friends, post it to your website informing them that one of our bothers is down behind enemy lines.  We don’t leave our brothers behind.  That is unless you’re Greek.  I am just kidding. Come on, that’s funny!  I’m a WOP and I am proud of my Italian ancestors being able to survive long enough to have me.  Thank you very much!

Call and email your supposed “News media” outlet.  Ask them what is going on with this Brave American Hero.  Tell them to do their freaking job or they are going to get left behind.  Ge-Zeus it was all over the news about the guy who was hearing voices and killed all those people at the naval base there.  What about the Lady who was killed in her car with her child inside. Wasn’t she hearing voices? Claiming mind control… I wouldn’t put it past them…at all.  It’s all we have been hearing about.  They were probably plants or experiments that went bad.  Sounds like Zombie’s to me.

Now we have a perfectly sane guy who gets arrested for dancing at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and then racks a Shotgun in Freedom Plaza Washington DC and youtubes it and…crickets.

Pay it forward and Rock on

Paying for your own Prison Cell

In overtly totalitarian countries, families of condemned state enemies are often required to pay for the bullets used to execute their loved ones. Two recent federal court rulings indicate that a very similar custom has taken root in proto-Soviet America.
On June 3, 2011, a man wearing a ski mask hurled a crude, improvised stink bomb through an apartment window in Laguna Beach, California. The payload of that infernal device was butyric acid produced through fermentation of milk and cheese. Several people complained about the noxious odor, but nobody was hospitalized. On a garage door of the targeted building, the attacker spray-painted the demand, “Stalk someone else.”
Without any solid leads, and acting on rumors, the Laguna Beach PD dispatched a SWAT team a day later to raid the Rowland Heights, California home of Marilyn Injeyan, a 71-year-old retired schoolteacher. Her son, Vahan, was described as a “person of interest” – not a suspect, mind you — in the stink bomb attack, which through the dubious miracle of Homeland Security hyperbole had been transformed into a “domestic terrorism” incident.
The first of the intrepid heroes through the door at Injeyan’s home was Laguna PD Sergeant Robert Rahaeuser. Fearing that the 5-foot-3, 125-pound female septuagenarian posed a genuine threat to his safety, the valiant Sgt. Rahaeuser ordered that the terrified and compliant woman be seized and handcuffed. The officer who carried out that order yanked Injeyan’s arms behind her back with sufficient force to tear both of her rotator cuffs. The shock and trauma caused the elderly woman to urinate on herself, and she wasn’t permitted to clean herself up or change her clothes for nearly a half-hour. Vahan Injeyan, who was undergoing cancer treatment at the time, wasn’t injured, nor was he taken into custody.

Neither Injeyan nor her son was ever charged with a crime. Although the original “terrorist” attack drove five families to leave their homes temporarily, and caused substantial property damage, none of the victims suffered any lasting injury. Marilyn Injeyan, on the other hand, had to undergo two expensive surgeries to repair her shoulders.

A few months after being assaulted by police in an entirely unjustified raid, Mrs. Injeyan filed a $290,000 damage claim with the City of Laguna Beach – an impressively modest amount, given the expenses incurred to the victim as a result of grotesque police overkill. After that claim was rejected, Marilyn filed a federal lawsuit. The City responded with a motion for summary judgment on the basis of the spurious and all-sufficient doctrine of “qualified immunity.”
On September 11 of this year, US District Judge Beverly O’Connell validated an act of state terrorism by upholding Laguna Beach’s claim for immunity. O’Connell accepted the assertion that a SWAT raid targeting a “person of interest” in a stink bomb attack was a proportionate use of force, and that the sadistic treatment inflicted on a submissive 71-year-old woman “was objectively reasonable when judged from the perspective of an officer on the scene who was executing a search warrant in connection with a crime of violence.”
A more honest summary of the judge’s finding is this: The standard of “objective reasonableness” regarding the use of force is defined by the officer’s capacity for self-preoccupation and his innate cowardice. Since Robert Rahaeuser is the kind of person who soils himself in terror at the sight of a tiny, unarmed 71-year-old woman, it is therefore “objectively reasonable” to order that she be shackled and treated like a threat to that most precious of all things, “officer safety.”
In fact, according to Judge O’Connell, it’s not necessary that the actions of police in terrorizing or brutalizing innocent people be regarded as “reasonable.” Their “cloak of immunity” remains intact even when they act “maliciously and without probable cause,” she concluded.

Pusillanimity of this kind, although repellent, is commonplace among police officers. It is tirelessly abetted by the tax-engorged unions that represent them, and universally indulged by the municipal cliques that hire them. Judge O’Connell added another layer of vindictive privilege to this familiar ritual by ordering the elderly, impoverished victim of police abuse to pay the legal costs incurred by the government whose agent had assaulted her without legal cause or moral justification.
The claim that police exist to “serve and protect” the public is among the most perversely durable falsehoods in human history. Police cannot be held criminally or civilly liable for failing to protect individual citizens from criminal violence. They also enjoy expansive “qualified immunity” against civil and criminal claims arising from official conduct that results in the injury or death of innocent people. Legal precedents extending back at least six decades recognize that police officers are exempt from a common law “duty to care” for innocent members of the public, unless some documented “special relationship” exists between specific officers and individual citizens.
This perspective is perfectly reasonable once it is understood that the police aren’t a body of civilian peace officers, but rather members of a paramilitary occupation force employed by a municipal corporation. As attorney Joseph Kogel pointed out while defending a similarly constituted organization in federal court, people who carry out such a role aren’t liable for their actions because the duty of care has been “remove[d] … from the battlefield.”
Kogel made that argument before the US District Court for Eastern Virginia in October, 2008, while defending the military contractor CACI International in a lawsuit brought by Iraqi torture victims. CACI was employed by the Pentagon and the CIA to carry out imprisonment and interrogation of Iraqi detainees at Abu Ghraib prison.
In a lawsuit filed against CACI, former detainee Suhail Najim Abdullah al Shimari, who was seized in his home in November 2003, describes how he was held without charge or justification by CACI for more than four years.
During that time, he was subjected to electric shocks, endured frequent beatings, deprived of food and sleep, threatened with dogs, stripped and kept naked in his cell for extended periods, subjected to extremes of temperatures and sensory deprivation, and forced to watch as CACI contractors – including a spectacularly sadistic specimen named Timothy Dugan – abused other prisoners. On other occasions, Shimari was forced to stand on sharp stones until his feet bled.
CACI, which made tens of millions of dollars by imprisoning and torturing innocent Iraqis, has claimed that they enjoy “absolute immunity” from both criminal and civil liability.
Like the other “public-private partnerships” on which our modern fascist system has come to depend – beginning with the grand progenitor, the Federal Reserve – CACI can claim to be either a private corporation or a government entity, depending on present needs. As a private company, its operatives can’t be prosecuted for violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. As a subcontractor for the Executive Branch in a war zone they can claim that they are not subject to the jurisdiction of Article III courts.
During an October 2008 hearing, Kogel took refuge in tautology, asserting that “it is appropriate to extend the immunity enjoyed by military interrogators to [CACI’s] civilian interrogators because to do the contrary would deprive the government of the ability to delegate functions when it determines it’s appropriate to do so….[I]f contractors are exposed to tort suits, they will be either unwilling to perform those functions and that of course impairs the ability of the government to delegate functions or [the contractors] will perform them only under conditions that may not be in the government’s long-term interest.”

Briefly and more lucidly stated, CACI’s argument is that its employees can’t be held liable for committing the crime of torture, because this would foreclose the possibility of the government hiring more torturers in the future.

In June, the US District Court in Eastern Virginia formally dismissed the lawsuit against CACI. The corporation promptly demanded that its victims pay $15,580 in legal costs. In a legal motion that would be breathtakingly cynical had not such cynicism become commonplace, CACI accused the victims of failing to present their case – and then observed that “the United States, in its considered judgment, apparently views three of the Plaintiffs as sufficiently threatening to the security of the United States that it would not allow them into this country even long enough to sit for a deposition.”
The Regime used a similar argument in 2007 to prevent Maher Arar – a Canadian citizen rendered to Syrian custody to be tortured by Bashar al-Assad’s secret police – from coming to the U.S. to testify. It has used a variation on that argument to justify the continued imprisonment of innocent men at Guantanamo Bay who have been cleared to leave, but are being detained because of concerns that they may become “security risks” on account of the abuse they have endured.
Under the emerging definition of official immunity, a victim becomes a “security risk” merely by protesting the abuse he or she has suffered at the hands of the Regime’s operatives. This is true whether the abuse occurred at Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, or the local police station.
Alicia Garafalo, a resident of Saratoga Springs, New York, attempted to file a complaint against an off-duty state trooper who allegedly assaulted her outside a tavern in 2009. Saratoga Springs police asked Garafalo to appear in court to sign a complaint against Trooper Kenneth Ahigian, whose brother Justin is part of the city’s police force. After she filed the complaint, state police rejected her claim – and two Saratoga Springs officers visited Garafalo’s workplace to issue a criminal citation for second-degree harassment and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration.
The abuse suffered by Garafalo, outrageous as it was, could be considered mild compared to the treatment inflicted on Monica Contreras. In August 2011, Contreras and her two-year-old daughter appeared in a Clark County, Nevada family court to respond to a petition for a protective order filed by her estranged husband. After hearing master Patricia Doninger dismissed the petition by Contreras’s husband, a court marshal named Ronald Fox ordered the very attractive young mother to accompany him into a witness room to undergo a drug search.
Disturbed by the prospect of being physically examined by a male stranger, Contreras requested that a female deputy conduct the search. What she didn’t know was that the “drug search” was a ploy by an opportunistic predator of a very common variety. After telling his victim that no female deputy was available, Fox sexually assaulted the terrified young mother by groping her intimate anatomy while making what were later described as “sexually abusive and harassing requests.”
When Fox was done with Contreras, she went back into the court to complain about her treatment. Fox then ordered that his victim be arrested for “making false allegations about a law enforcement officer.” That “offense” isn’t listed in any Nevada statute.

For several minutes, Fox and his gelatinous supervisor, James Kenyon, used the threat of an illegal arrest and the seizure of Contreras’s child in an attempt to extort a recantation of her accusation. When she refused, Kenyon handcuffed the weeping Contreras as her two-year-old daughter pleaded with him not to take her mother away.
“How could you do this to me?” Contreras pleaded as Doninger sat stolidly in the judge’s chair, pointedly ignoring the victim. “How could you watch? How could you watch?”
Contreras was taken to a holding cell where she was forced to undergo drug tests (which were negative). Her daughter was abducted by Child Protective Services and held for several hours before being released to the custody of her father. For several months, Contreras was allowed only to have limited and supervised visits with the hostage at a CPS-run facility.
The formal charges filed against Contreras by her abuser were “providing false information to a police officer” and “disturbing the peace.” They were dismissed in May 2012. By that time, the victim had filed an internal affairs complaint that led to an investigation that resulted in Fox’s termination by the Clark County Court System. Weep not for Ronald Fox: He has filed a legal motion for reinstatement, claiming that his termination violated “mandatory written procedures.”
The video of the August 2011 atrocity in Doninger’s courtroom is an amazing artifact, capturing as it does so many aspects of the compounded cruelty, corruption, and impunity that characterize the regime under which we live. Of particular note is the determined indifference displayed by Doninger as she sits with her back turned to the victim, conspicuously ignoring Contreras while playing with the two-year-old child who is about to be wrested, by force of arms, from her innocent mother.

Doninger is entirely representative of the robe-wearing functionaries who blithely issue no-knock SWAT raids now, and will, in all likelihood, soon be ratifying lethal drone strikes by police agencies. There’s no reason to believe that people of her ilk would scruple at ordering survivors of such summary executions to pay the expenses incurred in murdering their loved ones.

The Constitution and the 3 Organic Laws

Introduction to the new Constitutional Law and welcome to the revised Basic Course in Law and Government

It is my pleasure, as Founder of the Organic Laws Institute, to present this short introduction to Constitutional Law as viewed
through the prism of the other three Organic Laws of the United States of America, the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 and the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787.  This introduction has been especially written for the student new to the concept of the strict separation of written law from unwritten law for a more accurate study of law and government.

I can begin this introduction, appropriately, with the devious Preamble to the Constitution of September 17, 1787, the unofficial beginning of the last of the four Organic Laws, because I started my basic research into the much easier to understand transition of the federal courts in territories as those territories were admitted into the Confederacy, the United States of America, under the authority of the Articles of Confederation.  That research established that none of the federal courts have been ordained and established as judicial courts-they were merely legislated into existence. That research was easy compared to unraveling the Preamble:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The court research was easily confirmed by the way the Constitution of September 17, 1787 treated the alleged highest officer of the alleged highest federal court-the Chief Justice. The only duty imposed on the Article I, Section 3, Clause 6 Chief Justice is stated as follows: “When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside.”  Clause 7 of Section 3 of the first Article then makes it clear that Impeachment is a non-judicial proceeding resulting only in removal from office. It was now apparent to me that the Constitution was not what everyone believes it to be. Almost every natural born American believes he or she to be a Citizen of the United States and a member of the posterity of “We the People of the United States,” and that conclusion is exactly the misconception Gouverneur Morris was after when he wrote the Preamble. Gouverneur Morris is widely credited with writing other parts of the Constitution of September 17, 1787; he is one of only five men to sign both the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution. Gouverneur Morris knew both documents so well he managed to write one sentence that has fooled billions.

The language in the Preamble is some of the most duplicitous ever written yet every word has some truth in it.  The phrase, “We the People of the United States” in the Preamble to the Constitution of September 17, 1787, is never properly interpreted to mean the free inhabitants of the United States of America, who have become Citizens of one of the two kinds of States of United States of America. The accuracy of that interpretation is proven by asking, where do the people in the nine Article VII Conventions come from? Here’s how to make the constitutional connection between, “We the People of the United States…do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America” to the People meeting for “The Ratification of the Conventions of nine States, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.”  “We the People of the United States” and the “Conventions of nine States” are the same “People”.  Free inhabitants had given up their freedom to become Citizens of the United States, just so they could vote in favor of State ratification of the Constitution of September 17, 1787, Taking on the mantle of citizenship may not have been much of a burden in 1787, but it has grown to be quite a hardship today.

Article IV of the Articles of Confederation secures to the free inhabitants of the several States of the United States of America the right to live free of government without any loss of the privileges and immunities of State citizenship:

The better to secure and perpetuate mutual friendship and intercourse among the people of the different states in this union, the free inhabitants of each of these states, paupers, vagabonds and fugitives from Justice excepted, shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of free citizens in the several states; and the people of each state shall have free ingress and regress to and from any other state, and shall enjoy therein all the privileges of trade and commerce, subject to the same duties, impositions and restrictions as the inhabitants thereof respectively, provided that such restriction shall not extend so far as to prevent the removal of property imported into any state, to any other state of which the Owner is an inhabitant; provided also that no imposition, duties or restriction shall be laid by any state, on the property of the united states, or either of them.

When a free inhabitant becomes a Citizen of one of the two Unions that free inhabitant suffers a net loss in freedom, which is worse if the non-perpetual Union is picked.  The original stated purpose and intent of the Constitution of September 17, 1787 was to make revisions to the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777, which would make the administration of the Northwest Territory more efficient.  This was, of course, a subterfuge to hide a government power grab led by George Washington and supported by both the States and the federal government. Both the federal and State governments were becoming painfully aware that unless uprisings such as Shays Rebellion were ended permanently and soon every State and local government would be in danger of collapse.  In the end the Articles of Confederation were revised by the misrepresentation that the Constitution created a “more perfect Union” that Union was first created as a not so perfect temporary one by the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787.

Now, practically every American believes himself or herself to be among “We the People of the United States,” the “more perfect Union,” without realizing that by being one of the “People of the United States” much freedom is lost.  Because of the complexity written law, hardly anyone knows the Articles of Confederation have not been replaced or repealed.  The perpetual Union of States of the United States of America bound to Article IV of the Articles of Confederation is dormant not dead.  My Organic Law Institute can help you awaken the sleeping giant, the United States of America. President George W. Bush was briefed “the Constitution is just a piece of paper.”  The Organic Law Institute will provide you with the legal education, so you can prove that and much more.

The Worst Holiday of the Year

Send him mail.

“One Voluntaryist’s Perspective” is an original column appearing most Mondays at Everything-Voluntary.com, by the founder and editor Skyler J. Collins. Archived columns can be found here. OVP-only RSS feed available here.

Tomorrow, September 17th, is Constitution Day in the United States. Many will either gather to or independently pay homage to the United States Constitution. This document ostensibly created and gave the necessary authority to the Federal government. It was believed that its predecessor, the Articles of Confederation, created a federal government that was too weak to accomplish anything meaningful. Though the drafters of the Constitution were originally tasked with amending the Articles, and proceeded instead to replace it entirely, that the Constitution went through a ratification process ensured everyone that it did indeed give the requisite authority to the newly formed government. But did it really? Did the new government have proper authority to exercise its delegated powers over the then territorial boundary of the thirteen colonies? After considering a few important facts, I think its claim to authority is just that, a claim, but one which no one is really bound to honor.

No Authority

Every libertarian and voluntaryist knows that majority rule is invalid as a governing principle. Some people, no matter how numerous, can’t simply vote away the liberties of others. Unless you’ve committed a crime, an act of aggression, I have no right to restrict your actions on or to take your property by the use of force. And because I have no right to such, I and a group of others haven’t that right either. This is a very basic principle in political philosophy. After the Constitution was drafted, it went through a ratification process. At every point leading up to this, majority vote decided the outcome. Majority vote chose the convention delegates and the ratifiers, and majority vote in many of the colonies decided ratification. Clearly, based on the above principle, none of this was valid. Again, majorities can’t take away (through voting) the liberties of others, and both the newly formed State governments and Federal government did just that. Dissenters at every level retained there liberties to act as if their governments didn’t exist.

Criminals, Most of Them

That those who drafted and ratified the Constitution lacked the authority to do so is easy to show using the above analysis, but let’s go further. In 18th century America, most people were not allowed to participate in elections. Men without landed property, women, children, and slaves were all excluded from the political process. Only white men with land had the privilege of voting for or becoming delegates (drafters) and ratifiers. The wealthy, in other words. That they were wealthy there is no doubt, but what was the source of that wealth? Most were slaveholders, meaning, they forcibly exploited others to build their wealth. Under the libertarian theory of justice, the rightful owners to that wealth were actually the slaves themselves*. Their masters were mala in se criminals. What are the implications of that?

Do criminals have the right to use their stolen wealth as evidence of their “right” to participate in a political system that restricts participation to the wealthy? Do criminals have the right to draft a new Constitution, thereby creating a new federal government with the powers of taxation, regulation, and monopoly dispute adjudication? Do criminals have the right to ratify the new Constitution, thereby delegating to it said powers over the rest of society within a given territorial boundary? Do criminals have the right to vote away the liberties of noncriminals? I can’t think of a single reason why criminals, whose crimes are the forceful kidnapping, imprisonment, and subjugation of innocent people, would have the right to do any of these things.

Final Thoughts

It’s simple, really. The Constitution has no authority, nor does the Federal government that it created. The powers it exercises are an usurpation of the rights and liberties of all Americans. Likewise every other government within and without the United States. Though every government commits acts of aggression against its own people, the United States has a sordid history of both domestic and foreign aggression. Constitution Day is really a celebration of one of the greatest crimes in the history of the world, and of the criminals who committed it. I can’t in good conscience observe what is arguably the worst holiday of the year.

* Either as the real creators of that wealth, or as it was owed to them as reparations for generations of slavery.

Life Changing book FLOURISH

Bob Podolsky’s new book, FLOURISH! is being read and is highly regarded florish cover Bob Podolskyby some of the Liberty Movement’s deepest thinkers and strongest leaders – folks like Clyde Cleveland the author of Common Sense Revisited, and Foster Gamble, creator of the movie, Thrive.

The book FLOURISH presents the most thoughtful analysis to date of the BIG PROBLEM that humanity faces today, and it also proposes a unique solution to the problem – one that goes beyond the notion of tinkering with the laws or reestablishing the Constitution. Podolsky has shown unequivocally that, while these efforts may be necessary to bring about peace and prosperity, they will never be sufficient for this purpose – because:

  • The central bankers who own the government don’t care about the law – except when it serves them.
  • They routinely kill anyone who gets in their way – and have slaughtered hundreds of millions of people in the course of the past century.

Based on twenty years of scientific research spanning 2,500 years of historical evidence, this book provides powerful answers to the questions that have plagued liberty activists since the movement began. You have the opportunity to meet the Bob Podolsky at the Common Sense Revisited booth at Libertopia 2013.  And on:

Friday 4 pm @ Salon 4 to hear Bob Saturday 9 am @ Salon 6 with Clyde Cleveland
Sunday 2 pm @ Salon 4 with Foster Gamble Sunday 4 pm @ Salon 5 w/Foster, Clyde, Bob

Preface to “Flourish” – by Clyde Cleveland

Buckminster Fuller: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”  

If you just picked up this book and are reading this preface to decide whether to continue, then I pray with all my heart, mind, and soul that the words I have set forth here inspire you as you have never been inspired before. I implore you not only to read this amazing and utterly revolutionary book, but also to immediately get involved in the Titania Project with all of the energy, enthusiasm, and resources you can bring to the effort.

This book is powerful beyond description. I will do my best, however, to explain just what it means to me and how profoundly it can change our entire world. This book truly presents the new model we have been looking for, to replace the bureaucratic institutions that enslave us.

Do you want:

  • World peace?
  • Complete prosperity for anyone who aspires to it?
  • A health care SYSTEM designed to help you be healthy rather than to make the pharmaceutical industry wealthier?
  • Less crime?
  • Less drug abuse?
  • Better education?
  • A cleaner environment?
  • Less discrimination?
  • Safe healthy food that is not genetically altered?

Then read this book and learn how you can help create a transition to a system that will provide all of us with these glorious benefits and much, much more!

Bucky Fuller was correct that when you spend your energy and time fighting against firmly established institutions, you are going to end up demoralized, exhausted and discouraged. I know. I have spent a lifetime railing against the “system.” I have approached it from every possible angle including as a Republican, Democrat, Socialist, and Libertarian. I have been a Director or Founder of several organizations designed to reform the tax system, educate people about the GMO scam, create world peace, help create the first ever Constitutional sheriff convention, etc. I have run for office twice and written two books in order to educate people about the absolute and total corruption of our government and other major institutions.

It took me too long to understand that working through either political party is a total waste of time. They are both controlled by the same interest groups.  It took me still longer to realize that all of the divisions among us are created, promoted, exaggerated, and exacerbated by those who rule us. To divide and conquer is a very effective technique and it has been used for thousands of years to control people.

I finally realized that all of our political parties, organized religions, labor unions, banking/financial cartels, and many of our major corporations work together to protect each other and the power elite behind the scenes. The current system benefits them and they will work to keep the system just the way it is.

I have never read any book or heard anyone describe our present system and its faults as clearly as Robert Podolsky does in this book.  He has spent a lifetime doing research to bring out this knowledge. Describing the present corrupt, top-down, force based system we have lived under on this planet for nearly 8,000 years is only a small part of what he does in this book. The real meat of this book is the solution presented to create an alternative system. 

The author is absolutely correct about the importance of ethics. Without a system of ethics which becomes the agreed upon prime directive of the vast majority of our society, we are doomed.  Anyone who has studied the founding of the American Republic knows that, for the most part, a very high level of ethical conduct pervaded commerce and business in the 1700’s. The founders knew that without high moral and ethical standards, a freedom based, bottom up model of governance would not last long.

An ethical code is only part of the solution presented.  The author also presents a model for bottom up governance that is applicable to any organization including: governments, unions, corporations, religions, non-profit organizations, or any other organization of human beings imaginable.

From the early Israelis and Anglo Saxons, who used the principle of ten family units, to the successful Iroquois tribal system; from the amazingly prosperous and entrepreneurial Gore enterprises to the success story of Visa under CEO and visionary Dee Hock; from the Deming inspired corporate model in Japan to the employee owned modern companies becoming more popular every day, the examples of bottom up, freedom based, non-coercive models of human organization abound.

The end result of all bottom-up organizational models is more freedom, more creativity, more happiness, more productivity, more harmony, and more success on all levels of human activity and behavior. It is a new age – and that new age will not come about from a policy or bill passed in the U.S. Congress. You will not change the U.S. Congress, because that entity is part of a system that is very effectively doing its job.  Its job is not, however, to represent you or make your life better. Its job is to make those who control the system behind the scenes more powerful and wealthier than they are now. It is critical to understand that, in their minds, they will never have enough power or wealth.

No government or entity that is part of the existing system will save us. Do not think that the United Nations will save us – or that it is even benign.  Think again. The United Nations and all its spawn were created by the power elite that control the governments of this world and the biggest and wealthiest banking and financial institutions in the world.  For explanations of this fact, read “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” by Perkins and “The Creature from Jekyll Island” by Griffin.

We must create a new system based on a new model, as Fuller says, if we want change.  That model, as explained in this book, exists now and can be used by us to improve our lives in virtually every way starting today!  As the new system grows and takes on more of the tasks that we have mistakenly delegated to top down, bureaucratic governments, corporations, religions, and unions, we will see those ancient, useless, coercive, damaging institutions simply disappear. They will vanish as useless relics of a much less evolved society.

It is absolutely up to you to create this new system and make it a reality. A new age will not happen by itself – it will be created by people like you and me. I promise you that the process will be fun, profitable and fulfilling on all levels.  It is up to each of us to make this new model a reality. Our children and grandchildren’s lives depend on it!!
