Has anything really changed since we left? I noticed something the other day that indicated the fact that at least one television network has become desparate. Yes, CBS News is running ads wanting mass amounts of people to return, you know, back into their fold and particular brand of national and international propaganda. As I’ve stated in the past, Thank God for our youth and their willingness to disconnect from the old corporate guard.
My question to you: If there’s any hope for free and fair democratic elections in American, what needs to change? And, that said, what are you willing to do to change it?]]>
“Spines wanted” signs are all over the Capitol.Â “If found, please contact 202-224-3121 and ask for your representative.”
Republican Leadership is selling out their “fiscal conservative principles” like they were air conditioners during a heat wave.
The “Tea Party Tidal Wave” that rolled over Congress last year is now being tested against the immense pressure from the Washington establishment.
Rather than fighting to hold the line on dramatically reducing government spending, in a closed-door meeting today, members lashed out at a Republican Study Committee staffer, Paul Teller, for doing exactly that!
One member after another lambasted this poor staffer, including some chanting, “Fire him! Fire him!”
He sent emails to outside organizations about which way some of the “undecided” Republican members were leaning on voting on John Boehner’s debt ceiling deal.
The Atlantic’s Joshua Green wrote, “If Republican House members had any convictions at all, Teller would get a medal and a promotion.”
Tomorrow, the House is expected to vote on Boehner’s proposal.
Contact your representative today by phone or email – however you can get through – and urge them to oppose Boehner’s phony debt deal!
This proposal contains only modest differences from the one prepared by Senator Harry Reid.
Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office scored the Boehner proposal and found the majority of “cuts” over the next ten years were back-loaded, meaning they aren’t likely to ever occur, whereas the debt ceiling is raised by $1 trillion immediately.
Perhaps the most shocking aspect was the CBO found that Speaker Boehner’s proposal only cut $1 BILLION in FY 2012!
That’s right, a mere $1 billion dollars…
The vote was originally scheduled today, but after the poor CBO score, the vote was pushed back so Boehner could tweak his proposal (not to mention it was likely they didn’t have the votes today for passage).
This is beginning to look more and more like the botched Continuing Resolution negotiations to “avert a government shutdown” earlier in the year that resulted in a miniscule $350 million in “cuts.”
Yet the House Republican Leadership is telling its members to “get in line” behind this plan?
This is it folks.
The lines have been drawn.Â The House Republican Leadership is willingly capitulating to the statists in Washington who are demanding even more of the same borrow-tax-and-spend habits that drove our economy into the fiscal morass we still find ourselves in the middle of.
Please, take a moment today to call or email your representative and urge them to oppose any business as usual, phony deals!
This week marks the release of freshman Utah Senator Mike Leeâ€™s book, The Freedom Agenda.
Senator Lee has been a key ally in Campaign for Libertyâ€™s battle to Audit the Fed, and he has also joined with us on many other vital issues, including the need to pass a strict Balanced Budget Amendment to help rein in an out-of-control federal government.
Together, Senator Lee and Senator Rand Paul have shaken up the Washington establishment with their support of limited, constitutional government.
According to Freedom Watch host Judge Andrew Napolitano, “In The Freedom Agenda, Senator Mike Lee clearly explains how presidents and Congresses have exceeded the confines of the Constitution and how the courts have let them get away with it.Â His proposals to limit the federal governmentâ€™s ability to take and spend our money will frustrate the big government types in both parties and warm the hearts of freedom lovers everywhere.”
The Freedom Agenda is now available in bookstores, and you can also pick up your copy at Amazon.com for only $16.30.
You can read a free chapter here.
As Senator Lee notes, “It’s no secret that the more money we give Washington, the more they spend.Â The only way politicians will stop spending is if they are forced to.”
The Freedom Agenda will arm you with the information you need to spread the word on why itâ€™s time for a strict Balanced Budget Amendment.
Get your copy today at Amazon.com!
P.S. The national debate over spending and debt is more intense than ever before.Â The Freedom Agenda will provide you with the information you need to recruit more activists to support a legitimate Balanced Budget Amendment and help stop Washington’s runaway spending.Â Buy it today at Amazon.com.]]>

Name: Francisco Olguin
Yesterday, I stood in the town hall in Exeter, New Hampshire, with a packed house of fellow Liberty Lovers and announced that I am a candidate for President of the United States.
And, let me tell you, the response has been tremendous!
We have been overwhelmed with media attention and interview requests. Just yesterday, I did nine national television interviews, as well as many New Hampshireâ€“based appearances, and I even had to turn down many more. And, on Sunday, I will be the lead guest on Fox News Sunday.
But, more importantly, I have seen an outpouring of support from friends in Iowa, New Hampshire, and all across the country. Thousands of calls and emails have poured in offering support and encouragement.
Our REVOLUTION is now in a new phase. As the numbers build and the polling surges, we stand poised to win major political battles and take our Liberty back.
You and I know that America is the greatest nation in human history. Belief in Liberty, limited government, and sound money made us the freest and most prosperous people in the world.
But we are in danger.Â Two trillion dollar deficits, soaring inflation, endless foreign wars, and an ever-growing federal government threaten the very fabric of our nation.
All the work we have done together for the past decades has brought us to this place. We are challenging the status quo, and, if we come together now in these crucial times, we can win.
This REVOLUTION will be hard work. It will require long hours from all of us. And, as we threaten the power elites, we will be attacked. We will face smears, defaming, and dirty tricks.
But, I know that our mission is crucial. Please work with me and help give each other strength as we fight for Liberty.
So, as we launch this new campaign, I pledge the following to you:
2. We will build the strongest team we possibly can and execute the best, most professional effort in our power.
3. I will never compromise and never, ever back down.
Over the next few weeks, my team will continue to build the top notch campaign organization our REVOLUTION requires.Â I will be working to put in place the staff, resources, equipment, and technology necessary to help ensure this campaign is a success.
Please plug in with them over the next few weeks and find out what you can do. And please, always be patient as we deploy our plan. There will be an important job for everyone willing to contribute.
As we launch this campaign, I continue to draw my strength from you. Whenever I get tired or feel discouraged by the scope of our problems, I lean on all the passion across the country and am reinvigorated. I thank you for that, from the bottom of my heart.
Letâ€™s make this REVOLUTION truly historic!
Summary of City of Denver Corruption
Like Bell, California, the city of Denver, Colorado (to quote Mr. Ralph Nader) “has a local government which has proven to be citizen-proof, media proof, city-council proof and even leak-proof from inside its self-enriching top officialdomâ€.Â But Denverâ€™s “Officialdom” does it in a much more covert, fraudulent and abusive manner than Bell.
Get this disturbing fact; the millionaire former mayor (now Governor) of Denver (John Hickenlooper) has personally appointed all the members of the Water Board Commission; these five people, (primarily lawyers and developers) illegally control the largest public water system in Colorado. They in turn approve in lockstep, all the contracts, bonds and rate increases they are given, which many are overpriced or unneeded. If a citizen protests, they are intimidated, belittled or ignored. Isnâ€™t it illegal for a mayor and five friends to control a public water utility?Â Not it Denver!
This organized theft of taxpayer funds is very entrenched, well planned, and covert and has been taking millions of dollars for years from the Denver metro citizens. This covert organization has disturbing political protection. The police, the district attorney office and the state attorney general wonâ€™t investigate it when it was reported to them by letter and/or in person. When members of the city council of this large city were informed of the fraud by letter and in person, they claimed no responsibility to look into the manner and then lied about their responsibilities to the citizens. As did the over paid city auditor (Dennis Gallagher) and his key staff. When the local media was informed by direct meetings or phone calls, they ignored the serious problems and lied also. This includes reporters at the bankrupted Denver Post and major TV networks. See a pattern like Bell?
So similar to the city of Bell, when these few corrupt City of Denver officials control the money, the media, the city council and the law enforcement, what is there to stop this large-scale fraud? Nothing, so it has gone on for years, at the expense and abuse of the U.S. taxpayer, Denver metro citizen and the abused city workers. If you report this huge fraud, safety violations or other abuses, you are ignored, threatened, fired and stifled by a gang of corrupt attorneys from either the city and/ or the water utility.
You would expect expressions of shock and dismay from the elected people, the so-called, senators and congressional representatives of Colorado (Michael Bennett, Mark Udall, Diane DeGette and Ed Perlmutter). All four have been informed of the corruption by letter or in person by concerned Denver metro citizens, but ignored the problem, refused to address it and/or lied in violation of their oaths of office. The former governor (Bill Ritter) office was informed as well and claimed no jurisdiction to look into the crimes. This is a lie as well.Â A reasonable person would be concerned what these high paid elected officials are getting to ignore this and keep quiet.
The Water Board Commission (the five friends of the mayor) just recently, unanimously approved a water rate increase, even though numerous metro Denver citizens complained about problems of fraud, safety violations, employee abuse and numerous other problems. The rate increase was unneeded and a few managers at the water utility fabricated the justification.Â These millions of dollars in overcharges will be used to pay for exorbitant contracts to benefactors of the fraud, like theÂ $7,360,148 paid to the URS Corporation to do a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) report on an unneeded dam project. With about $2.22 million in Phase V to; â€œprovide responses to comments on the DEIS, revise the DEIS and then prepare the Final EISâ€. This is an outrage.
At least a dozen employees in the Denver City Hall know of this corruption and chose not to talk or leak the news over the years. The city newspapers, TV and radio stations as mentioned, do nothing to dig it out. The city council knows, but is compromised by its involvement in the corruption; each gets about $337,000 each year for salary, expenses and staff, other large Colorado cities paid only $6,250/ year! None of the town gadflies or skeptics bothered to reveal these problems. A gutsy, smart construction inspector with 20 years experience was fired for reporting construction project fraud in Sept. 2008; an ethical project auditor was fired in Feb. 2009 for not going along with the fraud.Â Another brave city employee, who reported the fraud abuses within his department, was sent home on “house arrest” and then laid off in Nov. 2009. See a pattern of cover-up and abuse? You would think, all that is needed to bring this to light was one or two people blowing the whistle. Bu!
t in Denver, you report fraud by city officials and no one hears it, because the media is corrupted and controlled. So your reward is media silence or biased reporting, illegal retaliation, abuse and termination. Here in mile high Denver, the millionaire former mayor and his staff covertly promote intimation and fear to keep your job and cover-up their corruption; what a place to work and live! Report corruption and get beat-up and down for it by the local media, elected officials and a gang of attorneys who stifle voices and cover-up the fraud and other abuses.
Please note, this fraud and other information is not opinion. Its arithmetic-crisp numbers and facts that can easily be shown to be well planned, covert abuse by anyone willing to listen and learn in a few minutes. The safety violations, employee abuses and other problems can easily be shown to be occurring as well by numerous concerned citizens.
To arouse the citizens in Denver they need an ethical source to investigate this and expose this ongoing corruption. Obviously, no agency locally will do any thing to expose this abuse, in this clearly organized crime controlled town. What is at stake is the continued organized theft of millions of dollars each year from the U.S. taxpayer, Denver metro citizens, thousands of employees are exposed to an unsafe and abusive work environment, water quality is compromised and the poorest and elderly in Denver get ripped off the most. They certainly cannot afford this abuse! More details can be provided by numerous concerned citizens, who just want high quality water and the right to job and a clean, healthy environment without fear of loss of work, health, being intimidation or abuse by corrupt, greedy attorneys, officials or managers involved in organized theft.
The saving grace in Bell is that, once they found out, folks rushed in protest to the crowded city council meeting and the perpetrators will now be held accountable. But how can people in any city be outraged if it isnâ€™t investigated and reported to them from a worthy source?Â If you care about your water system, you need to find out; who actually controls the water in your city? Is it private or public? Does the mayor appoint all the people who control the water system? Are these people there because they have outside agendas? Where does the revenue-generated money go? What are the actual expenses? Is it safe to drink? Why are bonds being issued? If employees reports problems, are they threatened or fired? Is your local media corrupted?Â If you have not asked these questions, then you may already have the water corruption existing in Denver; a public water system covertly privatized to illegally benefit the millionaire former mayor and his friends with help from the media!
, law enforcement and any others.Â People have a right to clean water and at the lowest cost possible anywhere in the world, including Denver. In addition we as U.S. citizens have the right to expect Federal agencies to investigate this huge corruption problem aggressively and in the best interest of the Public they are paid by. No evidenceÂ currently shows anything has been done to protect the citizens by any Federal agency.

Dick Adams wrote an email to the Spokane, WA, City Council and Mayor Mary Verner last week that, when you put two and two together, has the effect of indicting the mayor for anarchy. Actually, the evidence suggests to me that the mayor effectively confessed to anarchy three years ago with a surprisingly candid email she wrote to a former sheriff. Mr. Adamsâ€™s email shows what Mayor Vernerâ€™s anarchy is costing her citizens.
Mr. Adams objectedÂ to consideration that Spokane chief financial officer Gavin Cooley is giving to â€œcharging our city credit cardâ€ by selling $45 million of councilmanic bonds. Mr. Adams told me that he considers this an illegal use of public debt because its purpose is to solve a financial crisis caused by an earlier illegal use of public debt. Mr. Cooley is an agent of both frauds, charges Mr. Adams, which stem from the River Park Square financial scandal.
Dick Adams is hardly alone in decrying such abuse of public finance as part of a much larger pattern of government behavior in America today. A retired executive of a U.S. Steel subsidiary, Mr. Adams is well known for his financial expertise. Over the years he has been one of the closest and most knowledgeable observers of municipal finance in Spokane. Not just Teapartiers agree with him that Americaâ€™s fiscal lawlessness has become nothing less than a government Ponzi scheme now threateningÂ the country with an historic economic catastrophe.
In this heist, never-ending layers of debt are added to sub-layers. (Mr. Adams is horrified that American citizens now owe nearly a trillion dollars to China.) Much of this debt, as in the case of Wall Streetâ€™s 2008 meltdown and its globally transmitted fiscal disease of derivatives, is directly traceable to criminal activity. The criminal enterprise involves government officials helping private interests steal money from the public. The criminals keep getting away with their crime because of the gangsterization of government. Government criminals, naturally, will not prosecute themselves for their crimes.
At the heart of the 2008 meltdown is a structural accounting fraud that U.S. government leaders embedded in the global economy with their refusal to regulate derivatives and impose generally accepted accounting principles on them. That refusal is why uber investor Warren Buffett called derivatives â€œweapons of financial mass destruction.â€ Responsible government regulation of derivatives would have mandated full disclosure of their true asset value, and that might have averted the historic economic emergency now threatening the nation. For a quick review of U.S. government culpability in this emergency, watch the PBS Frontline report called â€œThe Warning,â€ http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/warning/view/.
In that report, youâ€™ll hear this exchange between a Congressional hearing panelist and former Chairwoman of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, Brooksley Born:
Q: What are you trying to protect?
Born: Weâ€™re trying to protect the money of the American public.
The Clinton Administration chose not to accept that mission. Neither did the Bush Administration. Nor has Barack Obamaâ€™s Administration. When President Obama, the eloquent purveyor of hope, and the U.S. Congress got around to passing last yearâ€™s â€œfinancial reformâ€ legislation, they accepted assistance from 54 financial industry lobbying firms that spent $300 million. That trifling investment bought Wall Street the ability to keep gambling with the money ofÂ the American peopleâ€”and the fate of the global economy. (See John Cassidyâ€™s â€œAnnals of Economics: The Volker Rule,â€ in the 7/26/10 issue of The New Yorker.)
From accounts like these, government officials and various private interests emerge as little more than glib public/private mobsters. Untouchable by virtue of the legal immunity they gain from their control of government, theyâ€™re able to enjoy their champagne while blowing raspberries at the rest of the world. In this scenario, the citizens of the world become to the public/private mobsters what the Jews of Europe were to the Nazisâ€”compliant souls to be herded into ghettos for scheduled liquidation. The liquidation in this case, of course, is not of actual bodies based on criminal insanity of the political kind. Instead, it is liquidation of personal wealthâ€”and civilizationâ€™s hopeâ€”resulting from criminal insanity of the economic kind. Thus have the nations of the world become ghettos for the use of organized financial crime.
Mr. Adamsâ€™s email connects to this bigger picture, because the settled evidence clearly shows that Spokaneâ€™s River Park Square scandal was the work of public/private mobsters. River Park Square is hometown civic theater to Wall Streetâ€™s Broadway extravaganza.
Supporters of RPS euphemistically called it a public/private partnership. Details of the project that surfaced in federal municipal securities fraud litigation, an IRS investigation, and extensive national prize-winning investigative reporting by my colleagues and me (see www.camasmagazine.com) show that RPS was just carefully packaged public/private crime.
Ugly facts clearly show that River Park Square developer Betsy Cowles set out to commit crime, and that her newspaper publisher brother, Stacey Cowles, did, too. Mr. Cowlesâ€™s crime was to provide the use of the familyâ€™s newspaper, The Spokesman-Review, to package his little sisterâ€™s real estate crime for public consumption.
This whole sordid history is tediously documented elsewhere on this blog and various links cited by it. Consider the following:
For evidence that Betsy Cowles knowingly set out to break the law, see the story â€œMissing Man,â€ http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=177.Â Open Ms. Cowlesâ€™s infamous 3/9/95 â€œdivide and conquerâ€ memo. That memo proves that Ms. Cowles, a lawyer, intended to violate federal securities law by hiding from investors her plan to launder a $23 million federal loan into the Nordstrom Co. by giving Nordstrom a free new store in Spokane. To accomplish this crime, she intended to â€œdivide and conquerâ€ Spokaneâ€™s city government, a time-honored tactic of despots. See â€œInside Job,â€ http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=101, for proof that the Cowleses set out to secretly access public funds in a way that violated federal guidelines, and that Spokane public officials helped them do it. As companion reading, see the story â€œFraudville, USA,â€ http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=179. Read the RPS bondholdersâ€™ 91-point Omnibus Statement of Facts. It documents the securities fraud engineered by Ms. Cowles with active complicity of a host of Spokane officials. The city admitted to its role in this crime by purchasing the bondholdersâ€™ complaint and promising to recover the $26 million it paid Ms. Cowles for the RPS garage. But then the city pulled yet another bait and switch on its citizens. It let Ms. Cowles keep her stolen money, and, with the help of the IRS, saddled Spokaneâ€™s citizens with the cost of the Cowles robbery. See â€œA New RPS Fraud?â€, http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=199.
For evidence that Spokesman-Review publisher Stacey Cowles used the familyâ€™s paper to cover up the RPS crime, begin with â€œAll in the Family,â€ http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=65. See also, â€œBreaking the News,â€ http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=172. There youâ€™ll find evidence that Mr. Cowles turned his paper into a propaganda machine for his familyâ€™s highly organized criminal enterprise of illegally leveraging a minimum of $100 million in public funds to refurbish the Cowles familyâ€™s downtown shopping mallâ€”River Park Square. Youâ€™ll also see evidence that when Mr. Cowles allowed his editor, Chris Peck, to twice attack former Mayor John Talbott as a â€œcivic terroristâ€ for trying to expose the $23 million federal loan fraud, both Mr. Cowles and Mr. Peck were in possession of evidence showing that they knew they were falsely accusing him. That is, they were falsely accusing a mayor who was trying to expose the truth and serve those who elected him. This is the blackest of journalism sins. Itâ€™s known as â€œactual malice libel.â€ That refers to the intentional publication of a lie. Mr. Cowlesâ€™s purpose in publishing these lies was obviously to help the Cowles family with its massive public robbery. Mr. Peckâ€™s purpose was apparently to keep his job as a handsomely paid Cowles bagman. To do that, he was willing to also become a hit man, assassinating in front of the community the character of mayor who deserved praise for his exemplary courage. Because the evidence shows that RPS represents continuing organized crime, and because there is no statute of limitations for such crime, I happen to believe that Mayor Talbott could at any time bring a civil RICO actual malice libel case against both Mr. Cowles and Mr. Peck. RICO provides for the recovery of treble damages, because its purpose is to destroy organized crime. The former mayor was the leader duly elected by the people of Spokane to protect them from the Cowles familyâ€™s $100 million RPS fraud. The evidence of fraud is settled. The evidence of actual malice libel is irrefutable. The evidence that Betsy and Stacey Cowles mounted a secret political campaign to defeat Talbott is also irrefutable. (See, â€œHow a publishing heiress went after an uncooperative mayor: http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=181 .)Â The actual losses to the municipality of Spokane resulting from the Cowles familyâ€™s criminal character assassination of Mayor Talbott and clandestine political attack on him would require forensic accounting. But that would be pretty easy.
For further evidence of my allegations that RPS was public/private crime, you might wish to review: â€œOpen Letter to an Ethicistâ€ and â€œAmerican Serbia,â€ below. See also http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=185,Â which is an article about a national first-place journalism award for a 10-part reporting package titled â€œHow The Spokesman-Review Subverted Democracy in Spokane, Washington.â€ See alsoâ€œThe Casino Was Rigged,â€ which describes the evidence of (un-prosecuted) crime found by the IRS: http://www.camasmagazine.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?aid=189.
Whereâ€™s the Anarchy?
So far, government watchdogs, bought and paid for by the private interests that control their bosses, carefully trained by their bosses not to bark when such crimes are committed, have obediently not barked. The watchdogsâ€™ complicity just adds to a history that, as Mr. Adamsâ€™s email shows, can only get uglier so long as the perpetrators are not brought to justice.
The RPS crime is the reason that the specific number Mr. Adams is questioningâ€”$45Â millionâ€”raises the specter of the mayorâ€™s anarchy.
The new layer of debt Mr. Cooley wants to lay on the public matches almost precisely the $44.8 million layer of debt that he and other public officials charged their citizens to pay off the RPS fraud that they had perpetrated on them.
â€œTo me, what Cooley is trying to do has the appearance of refinancing the RPS fraud,â€ says Mr. Adams. â€œThis should be discussed at least until 2030, which is when the RPS bond fraud will finally be paid off.â€
Mary Verner, as she is well aware, plays a central role in this â€œscheme.â€ Scheme is what the IRS called it. In this scheme, then-Councilwoman Verner helped hold open the bag into which she and her fellow public servants illegally shoveled the swag of tens of millions of public dollars. And then they submissively handed the bag over to Betsy Cowles.
â€œA New RPS Fraud?â€ shows how upset Councilwoman Verner, who is also a lawyer, claimed to be about her role in this theft. But she did nothing about it. She joined the great pack of barkless watchdogs.
Itâ€™s the email Councilwoman Verner wrote to former Sheriff Tony Bamonte, when she was running for mayor, in which she convicts herself of anarchy. Anarchy, of course, is the dog-eat-dog chaos that results from an absence of government.
Sheriff Bamonte has been a prominent enough Democrat for decades that every electoral season candidates, Democrat and Republican alike, make a pilgrimage to his home, seeking his endorsement. Mary Verner did that when she ran for mayor in 2007.
Sheriff Bamonte said he would support her conditioned on her promise to prosecute the RPS crime, particularly the death of Jo Ellen Savage in the RPS garage. Bamonte had filed criminal complaints charging that Savageâ€™s death was first-degree manslaughter resulting from Cowles neglect. (See â€œDeathtrap,â€ http://www.girlfromhotsprings.com/ and â€œAmericaâ€™s Most Dangerous Cop,â€ and â€œAmerican Serbia,â€ below.) Verner made that promise, according to Bamonte and others present at a meeting in the former sheriffâ€™s home.
Afterward, Bamonte got worried, because Verner said nothing about RPS during her campaign. He called her on it and she responded with an email that deserves a prominent place in the RPS Document Hall of Shame. â€œI recognize the huge issues of morality, courage, and strength of character involved in taking on the RPS issue,â€ she wrote in her Nov. 2, 2007 email. â€œI also know that if I make RPS a cornerstone of my campaign platform, the â€˜powers that beâ€™ will ensure that I do not get elected â€¦ period.â€ [See "Powers that Be" link in "American Serbia," below.]Â Â
Iâ€™ve never been able to understand what possessed Verner to make such an admission to the former sheriff credited with solving the oldest open murder case in U.S. history. Did she really think that Tony Bamonte didnâ€™t know the loneliness of taking on â€œpowers that be?â€ But there you have it in the mayorâ€™s own wordsâ€”frank acknowledgment of the existence of public corruption in Spokane more powerful than the cityâ€™s government. Frank acknowledgment, too, that she lacked the â€œmorality, courage, and strength of characterâ€ to confront it, even as she campaigned for a job that required her to do so. Itâ€™s hard to think of a better example of the most dangerous kind of anarchy there isâ€”criminal government. Violent terrorists and Molotov cocktail-hurling street protesters are feeble by comparison.
Mayor Verner has declined to talk with me about her â€œpowers that beâ€ email.Â She also declines to discuss an order she purportedly received from Betsy Cowles shortly after her election.
Sheriff Bamonte says that Shannon Sullivan, a close friend of Mayor Vernerâ€™s, contacted him last year with a disturbing account. Ms. Sullivan, the woman who led the successful drive to recall former Mayor Jim West over a sex abuse scandal, told Bamonte that she was in Vernerâ€™s office when Cowles called her and ordered her to take a trip with her. Bamonte told me at the time that Sullivan said the trip involved a flight on Cowlesâ€™s private jet.
I found Sullivanâ€™s allegation interesting, because of the IRS findings that the Cowles family controls Spokaneâ€™s government. (See â€œThe Casino Was Rigged,â€ linked above.)
When I asked Ms. Sullivan about the purported Verner/Cowles plane ride, she wrote back denying she had told Bamonte about it. Suzanne Bamonte, the former sheriffâ€™s wife, says she was present when Ms. Sullivan related this account. I provided Ms. Sullivan a memo written by Mrs. Bamonte summarizing her recollection of Sullivanâ€™s story. I requested Ms. Sullivanâ€™s comment on Mrs. Bamonteâ€™s memo. Ms. Sullivan did not respond. So far, Mayor Verner and Ms. Cowles have also not responded to my requests for comment on the alleged plane ride. If they do, I will post their comments here. Meanwhile, I invite Mayor Verner, Ms. Sullivan, and Ms. Cowles to post their comments about this matter here.

Suzanne Bamonte Statement]]>
If you want to know why banksters can get away with committing fraud to steal the homes and life savings of millions of Americans and steal from every American by raiding the treasury, see Why Does the Government Ignore Our Wishes? and donâ€™t miss my short speech.
If you take a look, youâ€™ll learn why banksters, their attorneys, regulators, and judges can get away with violating our rights, abusing their power, stealing homes, raiding the treasury and committing horrible crimes and why prosecutors refuse to do anything to hold the banksters and their minions accountable for their crimes. My article on torture includes a link to the U.S. Supreme Court case which explains how one of our stolen rights makes the difference between justice and injustice, between freedom and slavery.

After their election day â€œshellacking,â€ Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his fellow statists are seeking to rip apart Senate rules so they can ram through more Big Government power grabs.
And, most worrisome, Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans may be negotiating to give Reid some or all of what he wants.
This is an emergency, and I am asking for your help.
It’s true that Senate rules are complicated and seem sometimes silly.
But behind them is a critical intention straight from the Founding Fathers – to make the Senate a bulwark against tyranny by a narrow majority and a defense against a rush of “popular” opinion generated by some sudden event.
With pressure from C4L and other groups having thwarted many of their plans last Congress, Harry Reid and his cohorts are working behind closed doors to weaken the filibuster significantly, in addition to making other rule changes.
If a majority canâ€™t cut a deal, they will try to shove their ideas down our throats.
Click here to get your senatorsâ€™ contact information.Â Urge them to oppose the leadershipâ€™s rule changes.
Without getting â€œlost in the weedsâ€ detailing each proposal, allow me to explain why I need you to take action.
What the Democrats are considering a â€œfilibusterâ€ is the initial â€œmotion to proceedâ€ cloture vote.Â This requires 60 votes for a bill to make it to the floor.Â Depending on the makeup of the Senate, this generally ensures there is at least some degree of support from the minority party.
Despite the statistsâ€™ best efforts, cloture was where we held the line against several of their plans in the last Congress.
Let me be clear.
Without the protection offered by cloture, DISCLOSE, Police/Firefighter Forced Unionism, Cap and Tax, an even worse national health care bill, and many, many more schemes would now be the law of the land.
Even though the American people have made it clear theyâ€™re tired of out of control government, Senator Tom Udallâ€™s proposed filibuster changes will allow more of the establishmentâ€™s rejected agenda to slip through the Senate.
Under current Senate rules adopted in 1959, the Senate is a â€œcontinuing body,â€ meaning the rules stay the same from one Congress to the next unless two thirds of the senators vote to change them.
Getting 13 Republicans to cross party lines and vote for these rule changes is highly unlikely.
So, Reid may try to dodge the two-thirds majority rule by appealing to the Vice President to authorize a rule change with a simple 51 vote majority.
Since every returning member of the Democrat caucus signed a letter in support of modifying the rules (which puts them at 53 votes), the â€œnuclear optionâ€ mentioned above represents a serious threat, not just for the current Republican minority, but for all future minorities under the proposed rules.
This is a direct attack on our countryâ€™s long tradition of defending the minority against the tyranny of majority â€œfactions,â€ as Madison would have called them.
Guaranteeing the minority an opportunity to delay, modify, or completely reject the majorityâ€™s legislative agenda is a cherished part of our Republic that we must defend.
Please, contact your senators right away and tell them to take a stand against allowing any majority party to ram its ideas through the Senate.
Also, please contact Mitch McConnell by phone at (202) 224-2541 and by email here.Â Urge him to reject making any deals with Harry Reid when the Senate returns.
January 7, 2011 – For Immediate Release…
Irvin Rosenfeld, the longest surviving patient of the four Federal Medical Cannabis Patients in the United States and a Director for Patients Out of Time will be flying to Montana on January 8th to speak before the Montana Legislature for a week. Irvin will be there to educate people of the importance of Medical Cannabis and its true value as a medicine. As a Federal Patient for over 28 years, he has knowledge and experience that no one has in this country which he will share with others. To him, Cannabis is a medicine like any other medicine and should be treated that way. As Senior Vice-President of Investments for Newbridge Securities in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, he also understands the economic aspect and how this medicine creates jobs for thousands of Montanans.
â€œMontana is being watched Nationally, and what happens in this legislative session could set precedence around the worldâ€ states Rosenfeld. â€œMedical Cannabis Patients are productive members of society. I am living proof. I have been a stockbroker for over 23 years handling millions of dollars on a daily basis.â€
â€œOne of the biggest problems in Montana now is, they have had very bad press. The media in Montana has focused its efforts on one specific individual, and that has bled over Nationally. There are some very experienced, professional, caring people in Montana working very hard to care for patients who have went virtually unrecognized in Montana. I know, I have met many of them.â€
â€œMy goal is to help educate the politicians in Montana. There are some very intelligent people in Montana, and I am sure they will see the science and facts, and consider what is best for the people of Montana. Montana has a proud history of pioneering. It is my hope they will take the lead, and be the true pioneers for Medical Cannabis, and a shining example of the true value of not only Medical Cannabis but Hemp as well.â€
Editors Comment: Beyond the “negative” propaganda delved out across Americas media lies the honest truth about medical cannabis. I for one would love to learn more about prior and ongoing medical research proving the “positives” of this medicine… As Bill O’Reilly coined, “What Say You”?]]>

This is wise,? wonderful and something everyone should listen to. Red explains the meaning of nearly every word in the Pledge of Allegiance. It’s extremely sad that his fear has come true. Well said, Red, well said!]]>

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NIH Whistleblower Wins Right to Federal Court Trial
Washington, D.C. January 5, 2011. On Monday, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled in favor of a sickle cell disease researcher who blew the whistle on improper cloning of blood cell lines. The decision clears the way Dr. Duane Bonds to proceed with her claim that the National Institutes of Health fired her in retaliation for blowing the whistle on the improper cloning of cell lines without consent.
This is the first case in which a federal employee will be allowed to pursue a whistleblower lawsuit in federal district court. Dr. Bonds’ attorney is Michael Kohn, president of the National Whistleblowers Center and a partner with Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, LLP, in Washington, DC. Kohn said: “This decision expands the rights of some federal workers to pursue their whistleblower claims in federal district courts around the country. Unfortunately, since Congress continues to treat federal employees as second-class citizens this right is only available to federal employees who are able to bring a race, sex, age, national origin or religion claim in conjunction with a whistleblower claim. Otherwise, a federal employee has no right to a federal court hearing.”
Dr. Bonds, a female African-American medical officer, worked under National Institute of Health’s National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) since 1990. She was responsible for coordinating and overseeing all of NHLBI’s sickle cell disease human clinical trials and epidemiologic studies. Sickle cell disease is the most frequently inherited blood disorder in the United States, which in this country afflicts primarily persons of Sub-Saharan African descent.
Dr. Bonds learned that blood from African-American infants was taken from participants enrolled in the clinical trial for which she was the project officer without proper informed consent in order to create immortalized cell lines for future scientific study. Dr. Bonds was shocked when she learned of the unauthorized cloning and, as the project officer ordered the immediate destruction of all of the improperly created cell lines. Bonds’ supervisor, Dr. Charles Peterson, interceded and overruled Bonds’ order. Dr. Bonds subsequently brought her concerns to NHLBI’s Director, Dr. Elizabeth Nabel, who initially agreed with her, but ultimately failed to take steps to destroy the cell lines.
Retaliation against Dr. Bonds was swift. Within days of raising the issue of the illegally cloned cell lines with Dr. Nabel, a memorandum was handed to Dr. Bonds which stated that she was under investigation and was being summarily removed her from her role as the Sickle Cell Disease Coordinator and was threatened with termination if she raised concerns about the illegally cloned cell lines or discussed that she had been removed from her position with anyone. NHLBI then paid an outside attorney over $100,000 of taxpayer money to conduct the investigation that led to her termination.
Frustrated by the corrupted internal process, Dr. Bonds decided to report the existence of the illegally cloned cell lines to the federal Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The OSC concluded that NHLBI’s failure to destroy the cell lines violated federal law and issued a report to the President to that effect. In the midst of the OSC investigation, NHLBI illegally searched Dr. Bonds’ emails with her attorney and located a copy of the OSC complaint. Bonds was terminated shortly after that when she was blamed for missing expiration dates on drug labels used by outside investigators in one of her studies. Dr. Bonds supervisor, Dr. Peterson, knew that the missing labels had been reported a year earlier to others and ignored this fact in order to blame Dr. Bonds.
The Fourth Circuit ruling means that Dr. Bonds can proceed in a federal district court to prove that her discharge was part of a witch-hunt that was mounted in response to her whistleblowing. Attorney Kohn further stated: “The time has come for NHLBI to answer for its decision to gag Dr. Bonds and terminate her for exposing unethical treatment of study participants.”
The Court of Appeals decision reinstates Dr. Bonds’ claims against NHLBI under the Whistleblower Protection Act and the Civil Service Reform Act (CSRA). However, it let stand the lower court’s summary judgment against Dr. Bonds on her claim of race discrimination.
Dr. Bonds released the following statement: “I am grateful that the Court of Appeals recognized the importance of allowing me to bring my whistleblower case forward. I wish that Congress would provide a new law granting all federal whistleblowers modern legal protections.”

If you haven’t noticed, FFTP, from time-to-time has offered real solutions. So, let’s look at the big question that began this piece and see where the conversation goes.
In the Inland Northwest, where I reside, several non-commercial radio licenses have been applied for or already granted. The key word I want you to focus on is “non-commercial”. This is what NPR and PBS once were. Big corporations noticed this crack in their armor and have recently decided to become major funders of NPR and PBS. What does this mean? Think of National Public Radio as being, National Corporate Public Radio (NCPR) and, PBS would now be, CPBS. Are you still giving money to NPR or PBS? If yes, Why? They don’t need your money. NPR and PBS are receiving major funding from the very same sources as ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
Does your community have a small non-commercial radio station? If yes, the majority within your community have access to non-biased broadcasting if you’ll only choose to nurture and support these non-commercial stations. A simple sentence within the non-commercial radio stations charter could prevent unwanted corporate influence. NPR and PBS have made the decision to drink the corporate cool aid. NPR and PBS can be replaced if the people within their communities choose to get involved.
Summary: Tune In to Non-Commercial radio and, Tune Out to those who have sold their soul for corporate treasure.
Here’s a small list of non-commercial radio stations. Some are already on the air while others are pending. If you want to add a non-commercial station from your community simply include it in your comments.

Dear Friend of Liberty,
As a condition of flying, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)Â now expects you to surrender your rights and choose between a strip search in one of their naked porno-scanners or a humiliating, invasive groping, that would be considered sexual assault if you or I were to do it to an individual.
Since when has national security required feeling up little kids and grandmothers or ogling them behind a curtain?
On Wednesday night, Congressman Paul said, â€œEnough is enoughâ€ and introduced H.R. 6416, the â€œAmerican Traveler Dignity Actâ€.
Contact Congress today and tell them youâ€™ve had it with the TSA!Â Urge them to follow Dr. Paulâ€™s lead by immediately cosponsoring H.R. 6416 to restore the dignity of American citizens.
Your representative needs to hear loud and clear that you refuse to surrender your or your familyâ€™s Fourth Amendment rights the moment you purchase an airline ticket.
Believe me, TSA screeners do not want to be groping your most intimate areas for the next twenty years.Â Their goal is simple.Â They believe they can humiliate you into going through their potentially harmful, radiating porno-scanners.
This is the time to tell the TSA to keep its rubber-gloved hands to itself.Â Once invasive procedures like this are fully entrenched, they will never be rolled back, and who knows what will be next.
Contact Congress today and tell them youâ€™re not going to just wait in line for your turn to be assaulted.Â The American people are not cattle to be herded around by their masters.
Personally, I’d jump on an offer of gold for wages and would suggest that this option should be demanded by all who currently work for a living. Gold will always have value. Can the same be said for the U.S. dollar?]]>
Great question! Perhaps someone out there has an informed opinion? If so, please chime in… As for my knowledge, the Tea Party doesn’t exist in the Pacific Northwest… Yes, there are local members of Campaign for Liberty out west but, the only time I’ve heard reference to the “Tea Party” is from my very limited attention given to MSM propaganda outlets, aka network news companies… yuk…]]>
It’s hard to fathom how far the average American has advanced in such little time. When I was a child, I lived in a modest middle-class home where my father worked as a machinist for a major railroad. We didn’t have a ton of money but dad made enough to support our family while mom stayed home to care for me and my little sister. In addition to dad’s wage, the railroad provided medical insurance and a retirement that currently pays to support my mother.
Since the 1950′s and 1960′s, what’s changed?
To put it in simple terms, we, the American middle-class have been sold out. From our government leaders to those who run our labor unions. In 2010, it’s all about corporate and Wall Street profits. Whatever it takes to turn a worthless buck.
Mr. Kraft, I’m not impressed with the “Made in Mexico” printed on the side of a recently purchased box of Ritz crackers. Need I say more?]]>
This question was recently asked on Town Hall U.S.A seen on Fox News. I searched their (Fox News) web site but found nothing. Not only was this all important question (Will “new” Republican’s “Prosecute the Banksters”?) missing but in doing so, the public was denied their ability to make their comments known. You, Fox News, asked the big question on-the-air, which we appreciate but, not on the web. What’s that all about?
Hey, Fox News… American business and political leaders should never be placed above the rule-of-law. As a fair-and-balanced media company, Fox News should be asking Congress to appoint William K. Black as a special, independent, Federal Prosecutor. Mr. Black should be provided with full subpoena power, the required resources and, open “public hearings” for the investigation and prosecution of all who have knowingly committed criminal acts of financial fraud.
As a result of last Tuesday’s mid-term elections, Fox News Television pundits say, “American’s want real change in Washington.” Hello, this American wants real accountability and leaders that are interested in restoring the public’s respect of government.]]>
With the elimination of America’s Middle-Class, U.S. becomes the wealthiest 3rd World Country on the entire planet. But, who owns/controls the wealth?]]>
