i received letters from jason and elaine today. elaine tells me that she has been transferred to the highest level security prison that a women prisoner can be in. she is locked in a cell 23 hours a day and wears an orange jumpsuit. ill post the contents of her letter on tommorow. right now here is the statement jason made to the court. it is already up on

“…I would like to appologize to the victims of my actions. wait, there are none. to this day i am still trying to figure out how a crime can be committed absent a victim. then again totalitarian governmets tend to operate outside the laws of logic.

I strongly believe that “the doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind” this belief was also shared by the men who wrote New Hampshires constitution, because it is the last sentence of Article 10, the right of revolution.

The fact that this case was brought forward instead of being thrown out on grounds of stupidity proves beyond a reasonable doubt that this is a kangaroo court. how could any man with half a brain actually consider imprisoning me for exercising my constitutional rights?

Although the thought of spending the next 15,20,30 years behind bars is not very pleasant, knowng that i committed no crime makes the time easier to bear. every time a guard tells me that he supports my stand or a stranger sends me a card saying thank you, i know i did the right thing.

Disgust would be the ideal word to describe my feelings toward this kangaroo court and the government in general. there is no point in getting angry at the incompetent, ignorant, and corrupt government , because it is the peoples fault for allowing fools to remain in power for so long.

The American people possess the strength, intelligence, and tools necessary to throw off tyrannical government. we have done it before, and GOD willing will do so again.

Let me add that to this day the government has not presented the law requiring ed and elaine to pay the federal income tax!

How – Actually – Does the State Work?

'Do As You Are Told, Or We Will Kill You'!

by Jeff Knaebel

"Communism is power based upon force and limited to nothing, by no kind of law and by absolutely no set rule." ~ Lenin's Collected Works, Vol. XVIII, page 361

The (American) "security organs" can designate and kill as they see fit

"Solicitor General Ted Olson has described the process: 'There is no requirement for the executive branch to spell out its criteria for who qualifies as an illegal combatant. There will be judgments and instincts and evaluations and implementations made by the executive that are going to be different from day to day, depending on the circumstances.'"

"In other words, what is safe to say today, might imperil your freedom or your life tomorrow. You can never know if you are on the right side of the law, because the 'law' is merely whim of the leader and his minions: their 'instincts' determine your guilt or innocence, and these gut 'feelings' can change from day to day. This is now, formally and officially, the guiding principle of the United States government. And underlying this edifice of tyranny is the prerogative of presidential murder."

"Perhaps the enormity of this monstrous perversion of law and morality has kept it from being fully comprehended. It sounds unbelievable to most people. But that is our reality. To overcome what seems to be widespread cognitive dissonance, we need only examine the publicly available record. There is nothing that any ordinary citizen could not know – if they choose to know it."

"Bush signed orders allowing CIA assassins to kill targets without seeking presidential approval. Nor is it necessary any longer for the president to approve new names added to the target list…the 'security organs' can designate and kill as they see fit. There is no way of knowing how many people have been killed by American agents operating outside judicial process. Most of the assassinations are carried out in secret: quietly, professionally… the death squads are able to operate clandestinely, using a full range of official and non-official cover arrangements to enter countries surreptitiously." – Chris Floyd,, 2 October 2006

"Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice. Nothing is safe that does not show it can bear discussion and publicity." ~ Lord Acton

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." ~ Patrick Henry

George W. Bush: "God told me to strike at al Qaeda and I struck at them, and then He instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did …" – as reported by Palestinian leaders to whom Bush spoke after the Iraq invasion.

There you have it, folks. In a nutshell, the quotes above tell us our place in the system: do as you are told, or we will kill you. The rest is all detail. One nuance of history might be highighted for the reader. The men who possess these powers of life and death have rather consistently exhibited patterns of psychopathic behavior in the form of mass murder and torture. In addition to Bush, Hitler and Lenin quoted above, you might consider, among recent others, Mussolini, Stalin, Truman, Mao, Suharto. The list continues ad nauseam throughout history. Hierarchical power structures appear to be an evolutionary dead end for humanity.

My Experiential Observations of Power (abridged)

I've served my country in foreign war zones and returned to face the derision of protestors whom I was supposedly "protecting." I rotated myself from resentment to an understanding thatthey were correct. My friend who had chained himself to other war protestors while they burned their draft cards was a braver man than I.

For them it had worked. Neither conscripted nor prosecuted, they were too hot to handle. I have arrived at a deep respect for the moral competence and physical courage of my young friend. Nonviolence is not for cowards.

I saw "over there" some of the same big construction contractors who, after merger and consolidation, are now gorging on Iraq war profits. I recall a naval leadership journal which carried photos of a French tank mired in a rice paddy circa 1948, alongside a photo of an American tank mired in a rice paddy circa 1968. Paired images of a killing field, stalked hyena-like by cold-blooded central bankers and their political consorts. The dead are but abstractions reported to a balance sheet as corporate dividends. Political payoffs are footnoted as "other expenses."

Today we are viewing the updated remix as "Shock and Awe" murder-of-every-living-thing-from-a-safe-distance. It would pound the earth itself into submissive dust on the Emperor's shoes. An imperialist gone mad in its greed for oil, for corporate dividends, for unlimited power, its mass murder spares not woman nor child nor cow. The revolving door of power brokers rotating between government-defense contracting-banking leads to the same bloody dead end, generation after generation.

Of Power, this much I know from experience both over and under:

  • It aggrandizes itself, feeding upon everything in its path
  • It comes as corporate CEO and abusive husband, as admiral and chairman, as dictator and patriarch
  • Greed is its energy and cowards it crushes, although itself cowardly
  • Courage it cannot withstand, especially moral
  • It corrupts absolutely kindness into cruelty
  • It knows no limit of acquisitiveness
  • It attracts the corruptible and the corrupt
  • It is pure evil in the hands of no matter whom
  • It usually wears a mask
  • In the five generations with which I have had direct contact it has brought misery, murder, rape and pillage
  • And the nuclear bomb

The battle is for the mind of man. The prize is no longer in vanquishing some "other." The battle is either all against all or all for all. There is no "other" to conquer. We are all in it together. We either grow a garden together or we cannibalize each other in the course of turning the earth into a desert. We can either plant trees together, or race to be the last person standing to cut down the last tree.


"Total war is the invention of the modern State." ~ Michael Rozeff, 2 August 2005

"Since a human being has no power to create life, he has, therefore, no right to destroy life."
~ T. N. Khoshoo, 1995

The State as an organization keeps on running with periodic changes of management called elections. Because of its ability to make laws and impose taxes, its power is limited only by the tolerance of the people for their exploitation. The State can coerce its members without reciprocal consequences. It operates without fear of reprisal. It can use aggressive force to make others do things against their will. Its "managers" are protected by sovereign immunity. Because it both rules and taxes, it suffers no agency costs for its errors: it simply shifts the cost to taxpayers.

"To force a man to pay for the violation of his own liberty is indeed adding insult to injury. But that is exactly what the State does. Read the Congressional Record; follow the proceedings of the State legislatures; examine our statute books. Testing each Act separately by the law of equal liberty, you will find that a good nine tenths of existing legislation serves not to that fundamental social law, but either to prescribe the individual's personal habits, or worse, to create and sustain commercial, industrial, financial and proprietary monopolies which deprive labor of a large part of the reward that it would receive in a true free market." ~ Benjamin Tucker, 1890

The US is not a contractual State in the sense of an organization owned by its principals, the citizens. It has become a predatory State in the sense of a corporation owned and operated by a small group. This evolution was made inevitable by the weaknesses of the Constitution and actions of the power brokers and legislature. Rozeff (3 August 2006) estimates that the top management group of USA comprises between 15 and 60 members. These members rotate in revolving door fashion between and among various centers of social and political power. The figureheads and mouthpieces – the Kennedys, Nixons, Clintons, Bushes – are all fungible, each can be replaced by another without perturbing the system. In this manner do elections always come to a choice between two morally indistinguishable candidates. Likewise, no matter who you vote for, the political establishment always gets elected.

A few dozen people control the vast bureaucracies. The State's power depends upon holding the loyalty and obedience of these career employees within the power structure. This is done by passing out special privileges and emoluments. Napoleon noted the amazing lust of men for awards and decorations. The final tool in the arsenal of control is to heap honors upon those who have been corrupted.

M.S. Rozeff (see Lew Rockwell website) argues that the State lowers the cost of immorality, and people subsequently demand more State. Those who do occasionally resist face an "immortal" foe that owns the law-making power. People will rationalize their greater demand for immorality with new ideas of right and wrong. Giving up liberty in exchange, they will come to worship authority, equality, the use of force, and power. They will move away from self-reliance, responsibility, obligation to elders and the disadvantaged of society. They will accept, even enjoy their new situation. The State corrupts social morals and human beings.

Ron Paul “Responds” to Petitions for Redress

August 22, 2008

Ron Paul “Responds” to Petitions for Redress

Government Puts Kibosh On Hunger Fast

Thus far, Texas Rep. Ron Paul has “responded” to the Petitions for Redress by having them “forwarded to the Clerk of the House.”

While such a move is unique among the Members of the House, and is not a bad first step in etching the concept of Government accountability into the minds of some of the Members and advancing ever so slightly the question of the constitutional meaning of the last ten words of the First Amendment, it is highly unlikely that the Petitions for Redress will advance to House Committees for consideration, much less a vote to provide Redress. With the possible exception of Ron Paul, we know of no other politician willing to consider the notion of being held accountable to the People outside the periodic electoral process.

Whether or not the Petitions for Redress served on Ron Paul advance beyond the Office of the Speaker of the House, a constituent’s Right to Redress (like that of Religion, Speech, Press and Assembly) is an individual Right that does not depend on the will of any person or majority, not in the House, not in the Senate, not on any Court bench, and not among those voting in any election.

Forwarding the Petitions for Redress to the Clerk of the House has not relieved Rep. Ron Paul of his individual obligation to respond by answering the questions embedded in each of the seven Petitions for Redress. Even if his answer is, “I lack knowledge enough to admit or deny,” he has a legal (constitutional) obligation to respond.

We pray Rep. Paul will personally respond to the Petitions for Redress.

No Such Thing as a Good Cop

Wow Larken's on a ROLL!!!
My sentiments exactly. I have taken a lot of flak over the years for saying the same thing, "There is No Such Thing as a Good Cop!" If they were "good" they wouldn't be infringing upon my rights in the name of some nebulous (because they are enforced differently) made up rules by appointed biased majoritarians.
So Mr. & Mrs. American Sheeple, at what point is one a "good" majoritarian (and those who have been bribed by special interests) policy enforcement officer? When he only lightly infringes upon your rights? What part of "infringement" are you not clear about? PoLice will only respect your rights when they KNOW that they are JUST AS vulnerable to the application of force as YOU ARE!

No Such Thing as a Good Cop

When people act on their OWN judgment, like grown-ups, they are stuck with the responsibility and consequences of their actions. A favorite excuse of people who do stupid and/or evil things is "I was just following orders." This amounts to claiming that they were NOT acting as thinking, judging, responsible beings with free will, but were acting as unthinking tools of someone else. Put another way, the "obeying authority" excuse amounts to saying: "You can't blame me! I'm just a stupid, programmable machine, not a thinking human!" Swell.

People who believe in self-ownership (e.g., anarchists) don't ever get to use that excuse. You see, we believe that we are endowed with thought and free will, and that we are therefore obligated to judge right and wrong for ourselves, and obligated to act accordingly. What we do, WE DO. We don't try to dodge responsibility by pretending that we were possessed by someone or something else.

If the whole world were like that, even if there remained many differences of opinion, as well as stupidity, carelessness, and/or malice, the vast majority of evil would stop. Why? Because most evil is NOT committed by people acting on their own judgment, but by people "doing what they were told."

One of the most serious decisions a thinking person can make is, "Should I use violence?" Most people who are acting on their own will resort to violence only in rare and extreme cases. Those who act as unthinking tools of "authority," on the other hand, use force and violence CONSTANTLY, without hesitation, without any qualms or doubts, and without any guilt or remorse.

My suggestion for ANYONE who uses force is this: use your judgment, and when you decide to use force, accept the responsibility yourself, and face the consequences yourself. Don't hide behind "he told me to" and other spineless excuses. In other words, grow up and act like an adult.

But people in "government" don't do that. Consider, for example, the fact that a couple MILLION people are in cages right now for possessing "narcotics"--a term which means "mind-altering substances that politicians didn't give their permission to use." Do you think any of the politicians, cops, judges, prison guards, paper-pushers, or anyone else in the "justice" system would ever take PERSONAL responsibility for kidnapping someone and putting them in a cage for smoking a joint? No. They ALL blame "the law," as if it's some magical force that possesses their minds, relieving them of all responsibility for their actions.

If not for "law"-worship, how many beer-drinkers would feel okay about locking someone up for possessing pot? Approximately zero. Incidentally, though I don't drink alcohol myself (or use any narcotics), I accept that those who do, whether to relax a bit or to get sloshed, have the right to do so. But every cop, judge, politician, or paper-pusher who condones the "war on drugs," and then goes home to chug a few beers or sip some wine--which is almost every one of them--is a hypocritical, evil coward. All together they form a machine that unjustifiably locks up MILLIONS of people, and yet NO ONE in the system accepts responsibility for doing it. THAT is why the "authority" myth is so horribly dangerous: its acts of violence and evil are very real, but NO ONE believes he is accountable for any of it.

The Order required that I appear in person before Judge Hittner, at 9:00 a.m. on April 24, 2008. I arrived at the courthouse in Houston, Texas, around 8:30 a.m., in plenty of time for the hearing."

Bad Cop, Worse Cop

Bad Cop, Worse Cop

Nobody says it like Larken Rose! Read it and weep America. The forefathers of this nation resisted with force against less infringements on their rights than we routinely acquiesce to EVERYDAY somewhere in this socialist, magoritarian, authoritarian, FALSE republic, fascist legislative democracy. When will we learn that the only way these anal orifice porcines respond lawfully, constitutionally and morally is to the possibility of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth?

"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every police operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? If during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers or whatever was at hand? The organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." ---Alexander Solzhenitsyn - The Gulag Archipelago

Bad Cop, Worse Cop
These days, many news sites have a place after each story where the 
rabble can throw in their own comments. And every time there's a
story about police abuse, a debate arises about how many cops are
bad apples, and how many are good guys. You'll see everything from
"They're all fascist pigs!" to "The vast majority of cops are
honest and do things by the book." Who is right? What ARE the
percentages of good versus bad? Good question. Another good
question is, Does the system even WANT the cops to be honest and by-
the-book? Consider the following story: Fascist pig beats up lady,
falsely accuses her of a crime, but eventually is exposed as a
lying, sadistic thug. Here are the details:

Note in the story how this was NOT the first indication that the
guy is a power-happy fascist. So, does the system try to keep such
people out, or does it just try to keep them from getting CAUGHT
being fascist pigs? I would suggest the latter.

(Keep in mind, in the settlement for that case, "government" paid
NOTHING. "Government" has nothing to give. It stole money from
OTHER people, and gave it to the victim of the fascist thuggery.
I'm not saying she didn't deserve it; I'm saying the ones who PAID
it--you and me--weren't the ones who did her harm. I would have
loved to see the fascist himself be forced to sell everything he
has and give her the proceeds--and then get flung in a cage.)

In story after story, cops commit lawless thuggery, LIE about it,
and then find out that it was caught on tape. Then they "cooperate"-
- -once they know they're sunk--and get credit for doing so. The
system defends and protects its thugs, until their evil is too
obvious for the public to miss. Then, and only then, will the
system hang an individual thug or two out to dry, as if they are
the only problem.

The potential harm that can be caused by "authority" dwarfs what
the average crook can do. Imagine if that lady had been put in a
cage for 15 YEARS, based on the fascist's bald-faced lie. (I only
did a year based on fascist lies myself.) And since, as recent
stories have shown, cops seem perfectly willing to lie to protect
their fellow gang members, it often makes resisting police abuse
rather hazardous.

So do cops and their bosses actually object to police brutality and
abuse? As far as I can tell, they object to being CAUGHT, and
that's about it. They consistently lie, insult, threaten, and
assault, until they're caught on tape. Then, and ONLY then, do they
show "remorse," which shows only that they're sorry they got
CAUGHT. While the public gets upset when they see example of the
"bad apples" on the police force, I see little or no evidence that
those who run the system mind it at all... except when they get
caught. Yeah, they publicly act surprised and offended at the
"abuse," but only after all hope of cover-up, excuses and lies is

What would we see if even 50% of cops actually gave a damn about
individual liberty, constitutional rights, truth and justice? We'd
see cops getting fired every other day. When FIVE Tennessee "law
enforcers" (power-happy thugs) get caught TORTURING a guy to get
his "consent" to search his home, that means that there are a lot
more "bad apples" than government would have us believe. If there
was a "good cop" on the scene, what would he have done? Well, if he
was ACTUALLY good, he would at the very least have exposed the
abuse after the fact, and if he had a spine, he would have done
whatever it took to STOP the other cops from being sadistic thugs.

So how many cops would do that? Why have I NEVER heard of that
happening? Like those in the military, partly because of training
and partly because of circumstance, "government" enforcers always
evolve into a gang which cares far more about defending the gang
than it does about doing the right thing. (The mass murder down in
Waco is a particularly heinous example of this.)

Of the recent wave of examples of police abuse that have come out,
how many were exposed by fellow cops? I know of none. Is it because
they never NOTICE their fellow officers abusing people? Of course
not. Is there any cop anywhere who has never at least once seen
other cops illegally abusing people? I doubt it. So where are the
"good cops" exposing that kind of thing--I mean BEFORE someone else
catches them? Can you think of a single case of that? I can't. Why
not? They've ALL seen the abuse, and NONE of them expose it. Why is

It's because if, as a cop, you don't at least look the other way,
if not participate yourself in the thuggery, your chances of
remaining a cop are slim to none. No street gang would allow its
members to say bad things about it, and neither would the street
gang which calls itself "the police." The fact that there ARE
"Internal Affairs" units at all, which are usually resented by all
the other cops, makes it pretty obvious that most cops are NOT
going to "tell" on each other, no matter what they do. They have
sworn to "protect and serve" their gang, and that's exactly what
they do. If there are only a few "bad apples," and if most cops are
honest and good--if ANY cops are honest and good, in fact--why
aren't THEY the ones exposing police misconduct? They have a front
row seat to all of it, yet their lips remain sealed.

American Police State


If you visit this and other anti-status-quo establishment sites, have participated in any demonstration, have sent a protest letter, have written, been in a video or stood up publicly expressing support for freedom or the Constitution, you and your family members have been moved from the FBI's "blue list" to the Homeland Security's "red list."

In addition, DNA samples have already been covertly obtained from you and each of your family members and added to the National DNA Database (NDD).
They have your fingerprints, a strand of your hair and blood samples.
Your house, car and place of business have been bugged.
Satellite surveillance constantly track your every move through the use of multiple implants inserted without your consent or knowledge.

Please understand that there is no need to stop your resistance activities at this point, it is too late. You have already been entered. However, you are always free to do so and it might help knock off a decade of internment.

On the other-hand, since you really have nothing left to lose but more freedom it might be wise to step up your resistance activities. The above can only occur if the present trend and the structure of the existing government continue unstopped. The authoritarian, fascist, mercantile domination of the American government is a systemic problem and CANNOT be solved from within or using the existing form of government. The system must be overhauled completely with new safe guards installed immutably to guarantee personal liberties.

The following is proof of the utter impotence of the existing structure to guarantee liberty. ALL they do is register an IMPOTENT protest while allowing the vivisection of YOUR lives, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

I think the investigation re the notary may have added to the transfer issue, but we feel also that our filings have come to fruition. I'm certain I will go today, don't know where. I am afraid that with Ed not getting my mail, he will not get my letters from wherever I am going, his letters to me here will be returned to him, and he will have no way of knowing where I am, thus I will not get any of his letters either.

We are in God's hands; He will perform His miracles.
