​The New Economy. You Need It.

December 31, 2008 

The FED economy is irreparably broken and, thank goodness, will never be revived. Before you panic remember that we are in transition from the FED Economy to a new economy. This is a good thing.

We allowed ourselves to be hooked up to a big, sucking machine that pumped out our blood without putting anything in. That is why you are now feeling so anemic and why Chinese are coming over to buy our homes. Now, you can escape and take your lives and earnings with you. And you can keep your home, too...MORE 

Blighted Christmas

December 19, 2008

This year give the truth… This year Americans are confronting a melting economy, the massing of troops within our own borders, aimed at us. We are losing our homes to foreclosure and the Chinese are coming over with the faux dollars issued by the FED to buy them up. The shock waves of reality are hitting even those who normally lose themselves in football. This Christmas give the only thing that can make a difference. America was founded on truths, truths that those in power have endlessly tried to suppress. Those... MORE

Giving Love

December 15, 2008

Christmas is coming and with the joy most of us experience the stress of not having finished our buying. This year most of us are also suffering through the pangs of not having enough money to buy the gifts that would we would normally give. Across the country people are reexamining the choices they would have made and finding a wealth of possibilities that change their relationships with each other in unexpected ways. Instead of giving from the wallet they are giving from their hearts. This trend made me smile, recalling... MORE

Your Wishes Can Change the World

November 27, 2008

This year, as we watch the world around us collapsing, we are learning that Christmas is not about money. Christmas is about loving each other, about gifts that have nothing to do with the green folding stuff, or even silver and gold. Our money is melting down into worthless goo. Stores are closing; cameras are going up at intersections across the country. This morning I received a call from a friend in Florida who argued for twenty minutes at her bank where she has done business for twenty years. The problem? They wanted... MORE

Growing Home

November 24, 2008

Perhaps you are too young to remember when childhood was safe; children played outside from the time they were small. We went trick or treating without thinking someone might hurt us. Doors were open in our neighborhoods; we accepted and trusted each other. Children learned most of what mattered at home and in their neighborhoods before ever starting school and old people were sources of amazing stories. I learned about the Pony Express from Mr. Black across the street who had, at 16, been a Pony Express Rider. His eyes... MORE

The Lesson Of The Duct Tape - Get Freedom; Get Local

November 19, 2008 

When my son, Justin, was around 12 he saw a movie about Houdini. Fired with a sense of emulation he told his sisters, then in their late teens, that he could do anything Houdini could do. Determined to prove this he followed them around demanding they duct tape him to a chair. They declined, for all the reasons you can imagine. But Justin persisted. Eventually, they complied. Justin then told them not to release him no matter what because they would be interfering with his demonstration. He told them if they released him he would nag them forever. They believed him, having been his sisters all of his life...MORE

Are Your Ready for Peace, Prosperity, and Good Will?

November 10, 2008

You CAN have it all… My friend was choked with tears. Obama had won, she told me through tones filled with joy. It would be a new world, one where our hopes would give birth to renewed prosperity, peace, and good will. I just listened. Such outpourings of happiness are all to rare in life. In six months she will be filled with doubt and looking for excuses but at least she can enjoy these weeks. Call me a cynic but no candidate elected to president, not even Ron Paul, could stem the meltdown that is destroying the... MORE

You Can Go Home Again

November 1, 2008

Albert Einstein said, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” They boiled us too fast over the last fifteen or so years. Now, most Americans realize that despite the rhetoric they are not free; a rhetoric that sold growing restrictions on us as freedom stopped working; us frogs paddling around in the pot, the water growing ever hotter, figured it out. Even mainstream Americans have finally noticed. Gun sales are up sharply. A vocal minority has been working diligently over... MORE

The Exit from Fascism Is Open

October 26, 2008

When you lose your illusions you see yourself and your own actions clearly. We need to see our present circumstances as they are and not as we want them to be. We have an opportunity to take back our country but that window of opportunity will close rapidly. We need to return to the form of government experienced by our Founders. We need to stop talking about freedom and set tasks that return control of government to the people at the most local level and change our economy from one that has us hemorrhaging jobs and money... MORE

Bailing out the Banks, James Dean, and Freedom

October 4, 2008

In real life, James Dean was much like the character he played in Rebela psychologically troubled young man raised in a broken family. Known mostly for his attitude, Dean’s life was marked by pain. Sullen and painfully vulnerable, he was tormented by an offensive world and his own internal desolation. I try so hard, Dean once wrote to a friend, to make people reject me. Why? The above quote came from yet another article published this time by John W. Whitehead at Rutherford Institute. Again it mischaracterizes a man... MORE

Not Responsible For Any Debt But My Own

September 26, 2008

Time for Legal Notice to be served. When you have someone in your life who has been totally, or even criminally, irresponsible, the usual practice is to write up a small ad and insert it in your paper informing everyone you cannot inform directly that you are not responsible for their debts. It is legally binding. This is your opportunity to let them know you are not having it, for yourself or for your children. The US government, formally known as the Municipal Corporation of the District of Columbia, has decided to indenture... MORE

Armageddon or Freedom

September 22, 2008

Never have we had more reason for optimism… No one has to tell you that America’s economy is melting just like the Wicked Witch of the East. The stock market is slipping south; the currency market is volatile; more Americans every day face eviction; and naturally the government is grabbing food for its own use. Suppliers of food, intended to be used for long term storage, are being confiscated; the contracts signed with buyers, ignored. To the chagrin of the US Senate laws intended to fight terrorism that provided... MORE

Sarah Palin, Ron Paul and Perception versus Reality

September 5, 2008

The corporates find the coat tails that McCain desperately needs. Chuck and Sally Heath are proud of their daughter; they also have a bumper sticker on their truck that reads, “Vegetarian – Old Indian term for Bad Hunter.” Sarah Palin, their daughter and, if the present nomination stays put, the next Vice President of the United States, was a pick that shocked and thrilled people who have long been indifferent to politics. Have no doubt, the election results have been decided. The reforms needed to make it otherwise... MORE

Americans, the Common Law, and Freedom – What you need to know

August 25, 2008

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —“ When you read the preamble to the Declaration of Independence remember what the world looked like to the men who wrote it. Then look at our world through their eyes; understanding... MORE

Assault On A Family: A Black Family Fights Back

August 19, 2008 

Robert Fields has some questions he wants to ask of Child Protective Services in his home town in Florida. Those questions are, "How much did you make for trying to destroy my family?"

Robert Fields is a good man who knows his own mind and stands up for what he believes is right. A professional in aerospace, he is proud of his black heritage. He and his wife, Belinda, have raised up their children through the woes caused by the meltdown of values in America today and are justifiably proud of their kids, now mostly grown. No family is perfect, but their kids were raised to be respectful of their elders, study hard, and do their chores around the house...MORE 

Restore Constitutional Government to America

August 9, 2008

Every day we move closer; every time we open the paper, surf the Internet, it is worse. Left, right, libertarian, green, we know in our bones and hearts that we need to take action. We have been divided along lines of political opinion where we should have been joined to find solutions. We have been cut off from each other, manipulated for the profit of corporations and their cronies. It is bad and when we look into the future there is little to spark hope; The meltdown of the economy and the narrowing of what is permitted... MORE

Barak Obama is not qualified to be President

July 27, 2008

The REAL 13th Amendment You walk in the kitchen and your four year old is standing next to the counter. The top is off the cookie jar and his face is suspiciously lumpy; the little mouth is working wildly, the throat is bobbing up and down. “Arthur, have you been into the cookie jar?” You go through the motions of asking, even if what is going on could not be more obvious. “No, Mommy,” Arthur says through that last mouthful of cookie, “The top just fell off.” Then he looks at you to see if it is going to work.... MORE

What Law Enforcement Needs to Know

July 19, 2008

There is no Nuremberg Defense for those who violate the Constitution – Take Note Nuremberg delivered a message that is very much on point today for those in government; If you are employed in law enforcement, take heed. Most police and sheriffs today have been lied to, sold a bill of goods. Most believe that they do not have to uphold the Constitution; they believe they are safe from prosecution and accountability if they follow orders. That principle was debunked in Nuremberg and will be again. Cops hear it from ‘up... MORE

The Trial of George Bush for Treason in your County

July 6, 2008

On this 4th of July weekend, remember the Revolution, Read the Declaration of Independence. Consider the world that confronted those now dead. Then charge George Bush with Treason and Murder. We were once free and we can be so again. We have the tools, if we will use them. Restoring the Constitution is a need that is long past the band aids of opeds and education. To keep it from dying Americans must use it to restore the government, taking control into their own hands. That will be a battle in itself, but it can be done.... MORE

If Thomas Jefferson Were Alive Today

July 3, 2008

He would join CopperCards… They knew they would die if they failed. They signed anyway. On the 4th of July. 1776, fifty-six brave men signed a document laying out the reasons for a war that was already in progress. In a few brief words they outlined a profound statement about the nature of government. As old men they would hear the words of the document they signed read aloud every 4th of July. They wanted us to remember, too. The reading of the Declaration of Independence on Independence Day was carried out that we... MORE

The Business of Child Stealing in Florida

June 29, 2008

Under 5 years, blond, blue-eyed – $6,000.00. a top of the line product… We are going to take you behind the lies into the ugly truth that is destroying families for profit every day, in every community across America. You won’t want to believe it but when you see their faces, hear their voices, you will understand why this is happening and what it means to your own life, even if you don’t have children. The same system that views children as commodities to be sold also has plans for you. There is... MORE

The Safety Stop That Launched Constitutional Restoration - Charlie Sprinkle, The Goatman of Ojai

June 24, 2008

It happened on the lovely road that connects Ventura, Calif. to Ojai, that famous, slightly inland village where such famous world figures as Krisnamurti and Annie Besant held forth in the early 20th Century, changing the direction of spirituality for the Western world. Originally called Nordoff, for Charles Nordoff, the author of "California: A Book for Travellers and Settlers," published in 1872, the bucolic settlement’s name was changed to Ojai in the early 20th century...MORE 

Call To Awakening: The People Will Be Free 

June 18, 2008 

It has been a long slow awakening. It has come with pain and tears and fear to all of us. But it signals a new birth for America, one that reminds us of the words of Thomas Paine,"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child have peace." Along with the abiding fear for ourselves we know, beyond doubt, that we must take action so that there will be a future for our children. How we confronted that realization was different for each of us...MORE 

Our Constitution – The Open Source for Freedom

June 11, 2008

Last week I wrote about the martial law that those in power have been planning for so long. That is the bad news; there are a few more things you should keep in mind as the status quo continues to shred. Those in power are going to lose. They are the past, the top-down form of human organizing that has always been overthrown by the people with time. We are in the final throes of a revolution that began to reverse the centralization of power with the computer. Now, it is spreading. Those in power know this. Their plans reflect... MORE

Tin Hats, Truth, and Being Prepared for what will come

June 2, 2008

Is it just fear? Speculation gone amok? A science fiction scenario that is taking flight in the imaginations of the tin hat brigade with too much time on their hands, still living in their mother’s basements? No one knows for sure. But on the Internet and in quiet haunts across our nation many are saying that America is poised for THE false flag event. Those talking have plenty to say. They claim that several previous events have been planned to happen and then called off because the administration was outed; this... MORE

Murder for Hire In Santa Cruz – The Curious Career of Irwin Joseph

May 23, 2008

Many in Santa Cruz, California refer to Commissioner, Irwin H. Joseph as, “Junk Justice Joseph.” On a local forum his many errors, omissions and habits are discussed, the details striking the reader as simple sloppiness. Those who complain about the rulings coming from Joseph also note that he seems completely ignorant of the Constitution, ignoring the rights secured to individuals through the documents that, presumably, every American should understand. In a recent case involving the rights of the homeless in Santa... MORE

America’s Courts, City Hall, Child Protective Services, and more

May 21, 2008

Threats in ways you never imagined… Government views you as a source of income. You need to know that to protect yourself. More people are learning every day that at every point where those in power through government can touch your life you are in danger. It could be just that they are looking for more ways to suck out more money, perhaps fining you for something like your storage unit, something that has never before been worth noticing. Or it may be the profit they can suck out of your children once they are pulled... MORE

A Happy Mother’s Day Greeting from Social Services

May 11, 2008

Two women, Michelle Hammond, and Lynn Sears, accompanied by a sheriff, Deputy Kemmerling, drove up to the house in two white cars, one a patrol car and the other a government vehicle. They asked to see Arthur, my son. Arthur is 30, but disabled. Arthur had left to take a short constitutional after having lunch, he had then been gone for about 15 minutes. I told them he would be back shortly and went inside, leaving them to wait on the driveway. The house is a cabin located in a small subdivision. Most of the cabins are occupied... MORE

Relight the Flame of Freedom in Denver – End WAR

May 10, 2008

First, I want to say how it warmed my heart to read the postings that accumulated on the article by Wayne Allyn Root, or WAR, as I think of him, on Third Party Watch. It was heart warning to see comments from so many people who understand what the Libertarian Party was intended to accomplish. Even better, one of the links lead to LP Radicals, a site that actually uses the phrase, “Radical Abolitionism.” That brought back a wave of nostalgia. My great-great-grandfather, Benjamin L. Pillsbury, was a Radical Abolitionist... MORE

A Call for Truth, Reconciliation and Grand Juries

May 7, 2008

If you do a Google search for the words, Truth and Reconciliation, you find sites from around the world with stories of people seeking justice. Those stories can be ugly, telling of violence stretching back in time, carrying the suffering of people long dead. When you read the words on a site it is just words. You do not see the dead body of a small girl clutching her doll in the doorway of her family’s broken home. You do not hear her mother crying. But each of those heinous acts is present in the minds of the people... MORE

Ron Paul and Victory in November with Mary Ruwart

May 1, 2008

The candidacy of Wayne Allen Root is yet another in a long line of attempts to use Libertarianism for purposes having nothing to do with the philosophy of freedom. What does he hope to gain? Notoriety to feed his gambling ventures? A well burnished ego? Does it matter? His candidacy has reached depths previously unplumbed. Normally, ambitious and well-heeled wanna-be presidential candidates confine themselves to meaningless but entertaining flights of oratory. Since these platitudinous extrusions sell some extra packages... MORE

You are hiring a President – Insist the one hired is sound of mind and body

April 25, 2008

When we apply for a job our prospective employer can insist on a drug test and other personal information. We supply it or do not expect to be hired. This all takes place before we get the job. Americans are now considering the frightening question of which of four remaining major presidential candidates to vote for in the coming election this November. So why is it that these candidates running for president have not provided us with full disclosure on their medical health? This should already have taken place, before... MORE

Growing Carrots for Freedom and for America

April 19, 2008

Carrots can fight back. I remember when my youngest daughter, Ayn pulled out one carrot and it suddenly let go after resisting. Plump, she went right on her bottom, looking surprised. Then she started to laugh, still holding on to that carrot. Then she ate it. It was a long time ago. Back then I tried to grow all of our food because I knew it was much healthier. Also cheaper. That meant time in the garden with the kids. Those were good times that still make me smile. Such are the moments you treasure, along with the luminescent... MORE

Bob Poole and Privatization, Enemies of Freedom

April 15, 2008

Terri Hill founded TURF, Texans United for Reform and Freedom, to fight for the rights of all Americans. She along with other Texans had been shocked at the move to turn the highways paid for by tax payers in Texas over to corporations, to be operated for corporate profit, on a lease that would last longer than most Texans expect to live. Located in San Antonio, Terri and TURF continue their battle against the looming specter of what is variously known as the Trans Texas Corridor, the North American Union, and the Security... MORE

Why You Should Nominate Mary Ruwart

April 10, 2008

If the Heartland’s 5-state straw poll is any indication, the LP has sadly lost its way and forgotten the core values that brought it into existence nearly two generations ago now. Some few of us still remember the tears that welled in our eyes when we came together to work for the vision that is America. Like no other nomination in our history this one matters and this is why. The original idea was freedom for all of us, man and woman, every race, every kind and part of that cantankerous collation of living, beating spirits... MORE

50 Ways To Save Your Freedom – The Summer Of Love 

April 1, 2008 

On April 15, the Freedom Rally will take place in Washington D.C. on the west lawn of the Capitol at 11 a.m. In case you do not know D.C., that is right in front of Congress. Linda Hunnicutt, the original Granny Warrior, began organizing the event because she is determined to continue the Ron Paul Revolution, giving voice and impact to the thousands of activists who have awakened to the stark dangers we face today as Americans...MORE 

Mark Lerner is going to stop the Real ID. Now

March 24, 2008

Mark Lerner is on the road nearly every moment he can find the money. His time is spent in appointments with legislators, sitting down with them to discuss the Real ID. When Mark starts talking they are polite, but not particularly interested. They think they know what the Real ID is about. But when Mark is finished they are worried and asking questions. Mark is the whistle-blower who brought the fraud by biometrics companies to the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission only to be ignored for nearly two years... MORE

Earth Day No. 38 – The Summer of Love, Two

March 18, 2008

The real Earth Day, the one that takes place on the Spring Equinox, carefully planned by a small group of true and stalwart environmentalists in 1969, continues. On Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 1:48 a. m. EDT (Equinox) a figure will step up to the Peace Bell at the United Nations and a sweet chime will ring out into the night, lingering for all gathered to hear. At the same moment across the world other bells will ring, a symphony of sounds that speak a long and patient dedication to “Peace, Justice, and Care of the Earth.” The... MORE

The Revolution Goes Home to America

March 10, 2008

What no one in the conventional media seems to understand about the Ron Paul Campaign is that while Ron is the spokesman, the vessel, according to Danny Romero of Ron Paul Revolution Radio, the action takes place, organized and funded, not through the Official Campaign but through the Revolution. That is why we call it The Revolution. With the Revolution winning is not one campaign but taking back America. With the Revolution the people began taking back their power; that will continue no matter what. On the 6th of March... MORE

Arlo Guthrie – Take Back America

March 7, 2008

To be sung to the American Hymn, “My Country ’tis of thee.” Just Vote Ron Paul My country tis of thee Sweet land of tyranny – Of thee I sing Land where my freedoms died. Land where my friends all hide from threats of genocide – for thee I cry I look out on the land And see Monsanto’s brand Of GMO E-coli in our crops Why can’t the madness stop Don’t eat their poisoned slop You can just say no… I see disease erupt With every big gulp cup Of sugar corn Our nations over weight diabetes is... MORE

The People Are Governing Themselves

March 3, 2008

Most of us think of a people governing themselves as just so much rhetoric. Not true. The last year of the Ron Paul Revolution has proven that using the social networking tools provided by the Internet we can indeed come together to take action that is unprecedented in scope and power. These have been early steps but, in fact, whether or not Ron Paul is inaugurated as President next January, a mass movement of people have created the tools that provide the means to displace the present morass of government. We will change... MORE

Freedom Warriors continue the Battle for the Constitution and the Soul of America

February 14, 2008

Ernie Kicks Butt in Arizona: Mark Kicks Butt in Oklahoma We need to defeat the Real ID and we have only until May 11th of this year to keep the states out of participation. Despite what you have heard little has been done until recently to ensure that states pass the legislation that stops the Real ID for their citizens. Now, that effort is in fast forward. The impact of the Real ID is worse than anything you ever heard and billions in profits to the most corrupt corporations in America are riding on its implementation using... MORE

The Honesty Bond Rules

February 10, 2008

Bond all politicians for honesty and performance now Every time you hire a professional that individual is bonded. That bond is put up by the professional to ensure their honesty and that they will serve your interests. It is a kind of insurance of good faith. The Honesty Bond allows Americans control and oversight over the elected officials in which the so much trust is necessarily invested. This is another kind of insurance. Your Congressman or President can, obviously, wreak havoc unimagined by your housecleaner or accountant. You... MORE

Lessons on the Road to Liberty

February 7, 2008

The examples of how they steal elections are now thick upon the ground. Now, the most credulous and trusting have to see that elections are easily fixed. Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and now the swath of states that comprise Super Tuesday, the number of elections stolen is mind boggling. We can still elect Ron president but elections are a problem we need to solve. That is one issue. More follow. Today, February 6th, is the first day of the real Revolution, the final phase of the First American Revolution of 1776.... MORE

What Happened to Freedom? A Story You Need to Hear

February 4, 2008

It was an electric experience, heady, powerful, filled with joy and individual empowerment. People from all parts of society came together to work on the election. They made signs and waved them over freeway bridges; they printed their own literature because they could not get it fast enough. They wrote what was needed, did the graphics, printed it. They used their own money to get the job done. Every dollar they spent they saw as moving them closer to the shining vision on which America was founded. There was friendship,... MORE

Why America Needs Coalition – Clean Elections and Freedom

February 2, 2008

There is an immediate need to take back the vote. For longer than it is comfortable to contemplate the vote has been controlled by those who sign the contracts with the corporations who provide ‘voting machines.’ The Left has been talking about that for a long time now; they noticed first because in the beginning it was their ox being gored. On the Right we were lulled into the belief that it was just sour grapes. Part of that came from the media, other elements on which we built up our smug house of cards came... MORE

Take Back the Vote – Take Back America

January 30, 2008

There is an immediate need to take back the vote. The left has been talking about that for a long time now but on the Right we were lulled into the belief that it was just sour grapes. Part of that came from the media, other elements on which we built up our smug house of cards came from such books as, “Stealing Elections,” by John Fund. You may not be aware that a book with a similar title that actually outed the NeoCons was published earlier. The author died mysteriously. When you intend to steal elections it makes... MORE

What Future Generations Will Say About Ron Paul

January 27, 2008

Ron Paul was the natural icon for what we now know as The Revolution. His candidacy for president in 2007 was, for him, another opportunity to take the message of freedom to the people. It hit the bullseye for millions; providing a focus and goal to the growing unease and dissatisfaction of people everywhere. Events, technological developments, and ideas meshed. Ron Paul had, for his entire life time, been the Champion of the Constitution. For most of that life he had felt that no one was listening. In 2007 that changed.... MORE

How Much Do Ron Paul Supporters Care About Electing Ron Paul?

January 15, 2008

Do they care as much as Obama supporters? The chances are that most of us are not going to win the lottery. Most of us don’t win more than a free fries in the McDonald’s contest, if that much. But some one in New Hampshire could be receiving $100,000 or more in the months to come and at the same time know that they have moved New Hampshire back towards the kind of government that has traditionally mattered in the Live Free or Die state. The award of $100,000 is being offered for the arrest and conviction of... MORE

Taking Back America – The Ron Paul Revolution

January 12, 2008

Slowly, Americans are coming to realize how they have been manipulated using the institutions and tools for which they, themselves, paid. The corporations have generally been careful to hide their real agenda. Last night in South Carolina the mask slipped as they worked to marginalize Ron Paul. Paul won anyway, garnering 32 percent in the subsequent poll. Fox News offered a ‘debate.’ What they delivered was a carefully manicured attempt to eliminate from serious consideration the only candidate in this race who... MORE

99 Ways to Steal Elections

January 10, 2008

The Story of John Fund and Ron Paul We need a Ballot Bomb: $1,000,000.00 will loosen a lot of lips in New Hampshire. I was sitting across the table from John Fund in a funky little diner in New York when he told us that he was going to write a book on election fraud. There are moments in life you never forget; that was one of those for me. When he spoke those words a look of delight, glee and things unstated flickered briefly in his eyes. I wondered. It was early 2000 then. There were many places I would have rather been,... MORE

Snowmen for Ron Paul – Operation Live Free or Die

January 2, 2008

Today they built the biggest snow man you probably ever saw. When it was finished they stuck a Ron Paul sign in his hand. The Revolution is in South Hampton, New Hampshire. It’s coming to your home town, too, if it is not already there. Roxi Collinson was completely alienated from politics. She had never registered, never voted, and had decided that the entire system was corrupt. A good percentage of her generation agree with her. Registration among people in their 20s was low, as was political activism. Roxi is in... MORE
