COPYRIGHT POSITION STATEMENT AND DISCLAIMER
The Phoenix Journals are intended as a "real time" commentary on current events, how current events relate to past events and the relationships of both to the physical and spiritual destinies of mankind.
All of history, as we now know it, has been revised, rewritten, twisted and tweaked by selfishly motivated men to achieve and maintain control over other men. When one can understand that everything is comprised of "energy" and that even physical matter is "coalesced" energy, and that all energy emanates from God’s thought, one can accept the idea that the successful focusing of millions of minds on one expected happening will cause it to happen.
If the many prophecies made over thousands of years are accepted, these are the "end times" (specifically the year 2000, the second millennium, etc.). That would put us in the "sorting" period and only a few short years from the finish line. God has said that in the end-times would come the WORD--to the four corners of the world--so that each could decide his/her own course toward, or away from, divinity--based upon TRUTH.
So, God sends His Hosts--Messengers--to present that TRUTH. This is the way in which He chooses to present it, through the Phoenix Journals. Thus, these journals are Truth, which cannot be copyrighted; they are compilations of information already available on Earth, researched and compiled by others (some, no doubt, for this purpose) which should not be copyrighted. Therefore, these journals are not copyrighted (except SIPAPU ODYSSEY which is "fiction").
The first sixty or so journals were published by America West Publishing which elected to indicate that a copyright had been applied for on the theory that the ISBN number (so necessary for booksellers) was dependent upon the copyright. Commander Hatonn, the primary author and compiler, insisted that no copyrights be applied for and, to our knowledge, none were.
If the Truth is to reach the four corners of the world, it must be freely passed on. It is hoped that each reader will feel free to do that, keeping it in context, of course.

This journal shall be called AMERICA IN PERIL--AN UNDERSTATEMENT. Please do not even begin to think we are covering more than the most tiny focus in such a journal. I choose this title because I honor a man greatly who has spent years and years at solutions for his/YOUR nation and is finally beginning to find a "way" to be heard.
This volume, as will many to come--will be dedicated to Bob, James of Bakersfield, California,-who, in spite of everything "they" have managed to bring against him through loss of the "government and big business kind" and IRS assault--CONTINUES HIS PETITION TO YOU IN HOPES OF BRINGING BACK YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND FREEDOM.
The name for identification comes from an upcoming meeting to be held in Bakersfield which is sponsored by G.O.A.L. (Guardians of American Liberties). The speaker at this forum will be "Mark from Michigan"--a hard-hitting, risk-taking truth-bringer familiar to most of you REAL "citizens" seeking return to freedom and Constitution. I do NOT call you of this ilk "Patriots"; you go beyond the term now applied to anyone who wants to object to ANYTHING going on.
I want to print [below] the pamphlet printed for the occasion--it speaks for itself. This is a small meeting--but next year and in cities across America--let us join together with others of this ilk and fill the concert halls, the city halls, the convention centers and every BIG gathering place. These men can bring you truth and show you the way without nuclear weapons, etc., against the Elite. There will be speakers advocating force and all manner of actions--but you must be discerning and judge those suggested actions in wisdom and intelligence. You can disagree with a man without negating the truth offered.
AMERICA IN PERIL
Black helicopters and foreign troops have been reported in various parts of the United States and right here in California. Why are they here?
Mark, a former U.S. Army Intelligence Analyst and Counter-Intelligence Analyst answers these and other questions as:
* Has Clinton transferred the U.S. Military over to the U.N.?
* Who are FinCEN, F.E.M.A. and M.J.T.F.?
* Why are these agencies training for hostile door-to-door searches of every American home?
* Why are they targeting Christians?
* Where will you be camping next year? (F.E.M.A. detention facilities?)
G.O.A.L. (Guardians of American Liberties) presents:
MARK FROM MICHIGAN

Not to waste a bit of space to share information, I am most happy to note that the pamphlet announcement bears one of the most important topics today--as regards YOU. The information deals with EXECUTIVE ORDERS and a warning: Wake Up--Freedom is not Free!
We at Contact and in the journals have offered this information several times--in almost this SAME format. You cannot hear it often enough, citizens, because it is obvious by actions and continual tightening of consolidating additional Executive Orders (E.O.s) without any voting, recognition or public access that you are "had" and it is intended that you never KNOW or be able to act against this treason. You CANNOT be exposed too often nor too strongly!
* * *
WHAT ARE EXECUTIVE ORDERS?
Executive orders are laws established by United States Presidents. These laws are not passed by the Congress or the Senate, and create an end-run around the Constitution. These laws begin as Executive Orders which are simply printed in the Federal Register. After thirty days these orders become law and carry the full impact of any law passed by the United States Congress.
These laws are UNCONSTITUTIONAL because THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT AFFORD ANY PERSON THE RIGHT TO CREATE LAWS BY HIMSELF THAT NEGATES THE CONSTITUTION.
To understand just how this could all come about, you need to open your eyes, your mind and your heart. What we have discovered is quite scary, very much unconstitutional and in every sense, acts of treason to the United States of America. There are individuals in this world, within this country, and in our own government who would like to rule the world, and they do believe that this is possible. They are and have been working towards this goal for decades. Some of the individuals caught up in this endeavor have been our very own elected officials. These power hungry individuals have corrupted our government and are working on sabotaging our freedom by destroying the Constitution of the United States, in order to establish the "New World Order" (a.k.a. "Global Community").
To bring about this New World Order, and ultimately the single World Government, there are several things that must come about: All other forms of government throughout the world must cease to function and thus the countries would become bankrupt. Because the Constitution is a document that safeguards the sovereignty of our nation it must be destroyed. Because of the genuine threat of the American militia, the American people must be disarmed, and become addicted to the government hand-outs and thus become "sheeple".
The American people have become so accustomed to their freedom, and the constitutional safeguards afforded them, that they have paid little if any attention to what is and could be happening around them. The international establishment has planned this, and are working to use this weakness to erode our freedom and take control of the United States.
** The Declaration of Interdependence, supported by several of our elected officials, moves the United States of America closer to the mandates of the United Nations Charter.
** The U.S. has entered into many United Nations treaties (Genocide Treaty, Human Rights Treaty and Total Disarmament Treaty) that steal away our rights under the "Bill of Rights". Despite the noble titles of these treaties, the truth of the motives of the U.N. becomes self-evident under the most fundamental scrutiny.
** The "War on Drugs" is the guise the Federal Government uses to legitimize the invoking of Martial Law tactics (under the Drug & Crime Emergency Act), while they continue to covertly import the drugs and weapons they claim to be fighting against. This guise conveniently facilitates the total disarmament of all weapons (public and private) as mandated by the United Nations.
** Without the complicity of the Federal Government, crime of this magnitude could not exist.
These Executive Orders establish the basis for the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA). FEMA has the power to completely rule over the American people, any time the President should decide to declare Martial Law. If this should ever happen the director of FEMA (an unelected official) has the authorization to enact all Executive Orders, giving him full dictatorial control over all of the United States, its resources, and its people. Martial Law suspends all prior or existing laws, functions, systems and programs of civil government, and replaces them with a military system. These systems include the courts, mail, sanitation, aviation, firefighting, police, agricultural services, health, education and welfare. The American people and all their belongings become chattel of FEMA, and the United Nations Peace Keeping Forces will be in absolute control of our country. [H: The facts are that you have been in a state of MARTIAL LAW since 1933. All of the things which shall be listed are ALREADY under the control of the Administration. The last E.O., PASSED BY SIMPLY NO CONTEST, COMBINED THEM ALL AND PUT THEM INTO LAW AND EFFECT.]
When will this happen? As soon as all legal and illegal firearms are confiscated by forced house-to-house search and seizure. AS OF FEBRUARY 1994 AL GORE HAS FORMED THE "CENTRAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY". GORE IS THE CZAR OF THIS AGENCY. THIS AGENCY WILL CONTROL ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES: FBI, ATF, DEA, SECRET SERVICE AND WOULD USURP POWER FROM LOCAL/STATE, COUNTY SHERIFF, ETC., UNDER THE NAME OF THE MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL TASK FORCE. MJTF-will wear black uniforms and have black military equipment, including helicopters. MJTF cooperates with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Agency (FinCEN). Fin-CEN operates under the WORLD BANK, INTERPOL, U.N. AND FEDERAL DIRECTIVES AND IS COMPOSED OF FOREIGN U.N. MILITARY PERSONNEL. [***INDEED, YOU CERTAINLY HAVE WITNESSED THEM IN PRESENCE AND IN ACTION ABOUT YOUR NATION!]
FinCEN is a global economic police force using INSLAW computer programs to track ALL financial transactions of every civilian. Clinton's phony health care crisis is a cover to force a national I.D. card on every U.S. citizen so you can be tracked by FinCEN.
To every concerned citizen of this country (any village, city, county, state, etc.) who can read and comprehend: these laws are in your Kern County Law Library (ANY Law Library) under "Presidential Documents", U.N. Treaties, Executive Orders, printed in the Federal Register, FEMA, and soon to be GATT. New Crime Bill S.8, H.R.3355, War Powers Act and State Department Bulletin 7277 which explains the complete disarmament of our military and private citizens.
Some of FEMA's secret martial law programs taking place RIGHT NOW are Wintex-Cimex 83; Pressure Point 84, Rex 82 Bravo, Rex 84 Alpha, Night Train 84, and Cable Splicer/Garden Plot--and others too numerous to list here. So, Wake Up--Freedom Is Not Free.
[H: The most recent and direct confirmation of the above is the more recent Presidential Directive AND a continuation in effect of National Emergency (Bosnia). You must be alert and ever vigilant and you cannot depend on a brother to warn you--either you get informed or you are down the tubes!]
CONSPIRED BY A FEW OF OUR PRESIDENTS TO RULE OVER, NOT TO SERVE....

11051 Provides the Office of Emergency Planning, complete authorization to put the above orders into effect in times of increased international tension or economic and financial crisis.

11649 Signed by Richard Nixon, divvied up the United States into regions now to be controlled by FEMA and its fifty unelected officials. NAFTA and GATT are regional agreements part of the "New World Order" and not about "free trade".
...GIVEN A CHOICE, I'LL TAKE FREEDOM!
[H: THEN PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR IMMEDIATE EMERGENCY INFORMATION!]

I am going to take this opportunity after you have studied the above LAWS. It matters not whether or not they are CONSTITUTIONAL--they are the law of the Federal United States Government OVER AND AGAINST YOU-THE-PEOPLE. THESE LAWS ARE ALREADY IN EFFECT!!!
IS IT NOW TIME TO CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY OF NEGATING THIS GOVERNMENT WITHOUT BLOODSHED AND WITHOUT SUBVERSION. WHY DO YOU-THE-PEOPLE SIMPLY NOT MOVE YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT AWAY FROM THAT MONSTROUS SLAVE-MASTER DICTATORSHIP? YOUR CONSTITUTION--IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT--ALLOWS YOU ALL THE LAWS TO DO SO AS YOU SO DEMAND AND DESCRIBE!
I SUGGEST THAT YOU EACH CONSIDER THIS AND SEEK OUT OPTIONS. THERE WILL BE LEADERS TO SHOW THE WAY AND DEFEND THE LAWS--DROP A NOTE, IT NEED NOT BE SIGNED IF YOU FEAR REPRISAL (THERE WILL BE NO "LISTINGS")--TO RONN JACKSON, C/O CONTACT. DO NOT THINK IT ENOUGH FOR YOUR NEIGHBOR TO EXPRESS FOR IF THE PEOPLE (YOU THE CITIZENS) CARE NOT ENOUGH TO DO THIS, THEN I FEAR YOU HAVE NO SUPPORT FROM ANY FRONT. UPRISING AGAINST A BIGGER BEAST IS HARDLY AN "ANSWER"--RE-ESTABLISHING A GOVERNMENT SEAT AND SERVANTS CAN QUITE NICELY DO THE JOB--IN PEACE AND WISDOM!
TRY IT--YOU WILL LIKE IT IF YOU TRULY STAND FOR FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE AS ESTABLISHED BY YOUR CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS. REMEMBER--"THAT" NATION UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL??? YOU ONLY NEED A RALLYING POINT THAT YOU MIGHT LAWFULLY AND DULY ELECT AND SERVE. GOD WILL, ASSIST AND ASSURE--WHEN YOU ARE TURNED BACK UNTO GOD! TURN NOT BACK UNTO GOD AND SUCH LAWS OF CREATION AND GOD AS TO BE JUST AND EQUAL--AND YOU HAVE NOTHING FOR WHICH THERE IS WORTHINESS OF STRUGGLE--YOU WILL HAVE LOST AND I COULD ONLY WISH YOU WELL IN YOUR STATE OF SLAVERY. GO BACK AND READ THOSE PRESIDENTIAL ORDERS OF YOUR DICTATOR SLAVE-MASTER ENFORCED THROUGH POWER!!

SAT., JUL. 30, 1994
We were interrupted in the middle of writing about Abe Fortas as a "Usurper". I would like to continue this subject for a while today because I really do want to stay with this until we can cover Clark Clifford. He still makes almost daily news and, although he may not be as powerful or brilliant a schemer, he has nonetheless become involved to the point wherein he is PROTECTED by the powers that be until he has been able to skive off billions upon billions of dollars from you-the-people and never get so much as a hand-spank. Perhaps we can finish the subject of Fortas today. Thank you.
THE USURPERS, Part 13
Western Islands (publishers), Belmont, MA 02178, 1968. [Out of publication].
Continuing directly from Part 12:
Because of the vigor with which they pressed their cause, the moving spirits of the IJA (International Juridical Association) did not have to wait to get their men Abe Fortas and Thurgood Marshall on the Supreme Court in order to achieve most of their objectives in liberating Communists and supporting "workers... organizations... against the forces of the state." M. Stanton Evans in 1965 summarized the record:
The Supreme Court under Earl Warren has been the most powerful instrument of the Establishment program in this [internal security] field. The Warren Court has laid level internal security statutes and regulations in almost every sector of American life. It has struck down state sedition laws (the Nelson case), emasculated the Smith Act (the Yates case), hampered Congressional investigating committees (the Watkins case), forced opening of security files to Communist defendants (Jencks case), upset executive department security procedures (Service case), and hindered efforts to prevent Communist entrance to and exit from the country (Kent case). The Court has erased from the books almost every sanction the United States has against the internal activities of the Communists. (The Liberal Establishment, pp. 192, 193.)
[H: When you see something that indicates a MAKING OF LAW by the Supreme Court the red flags should be flying at full mast. THE SUPREME COURT IS SUPPOSED TO IN-TERPRET LAWS AS TO CONSTITUTIONALITY (YOUR OLD CONSTITUTION) AND NEVER TO "MAKE" LAWS!!!]
The American Bar Association [H: This is not a constitutional licensing division, a State licensing division or board--the ABA is a PRIVATE CLUB.] received in the Summer of 1958 a report of a Special Committee on Communist Tactics, Strategy, and Objectives which itemized twenty pro-Communist Supreme Court decisions (the characterization is mine), including all those mentioned by M. Stanton Evans, except the Service case, which like many another was yet to come when the Bar Association report was prepared. Communism did not win victories in our courts because Communist-fronters Fortas and Marshall finally made it to the high bench. It is the other way around. Fortas and Marshall were able to make it to the Supreme Court because Communism had already won so many victories there!
The IJA could hardly have started at the summit. It had to infiltrate its way upward by degrees. Its success has been phenomenal, surpassing all expectations. When the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1944 wrote in Appendix IX that "there is not a single important Communist-front organization which does not have a substantial representation from the personnel of the International Juridical Association," it surely did not contemplate that by 1964 the Supreme Court of the United States would be added to the list.
It was in 1965 that Lyndon Johnson appointed former IJA National Committee member Abe Fortas to the Court. Two years later he added former IJA member Thurgood Marshall. To be sure this was not the first time the Supreme Court had received a justice who had once belonged to an organization that would be cited as subversive by the Attorney General, for Justice Hugo Black had belonged to the Ku Klux Klan. [H: Isn't TRUE HISTORY interesting? Further, isn't it even MORE interesting to find that the Ku Klux Klan was also started by the British Intelligence Agency who started the Anti-Defamation League--B'nai B'rith? Dear ones--the blacks and the "Jews" are not friendly enemies--they are HATED enemies!]
Abe Fortas' life can be divided into five chapters: youth, Yale, the bureaucracy, private law practice, the Court. At Yale he met William O. Douglas and has followed him in some fashion ever since. After graduating from law school Fortas taught at Yale under Douglas, with whom he also worked in the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington; these academic and bureaucratic activities overlapped. Prior to working part time with the SEC, young Fortas, while still teaching at Yale was, in 1933-1934, Assistant Chief of the Legal Division of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA). Alger Hiss, the convicted Communist, was a lawyer with the AAA in 1934. Indeed, Hiss was "an Assistant General Counsel", as he proudly told the House Committee when Whittaker Chambers first called the turn on him in 1948. Assistant General Counsel sounds pretty good. Lee Pressman, another convicted Communist was one too, at the same time, in the same agency--AAA. Abe Fortas at this time was AAA's Assistant Chief of the Legal Di-vision. These are brilliant men. They wouldn't be likely to miss each other at that level in that agency. It's interesting the way Chambers describes the subterranean political atmosphere of those days. In Witness he writes:
I can imagine no better way to convey the secret power of the Communist Party in the domestic policies of the United States Government from 1933 to 1943, and later, than to list the members of the leading committee of the Ware Group [Chambers has previously gone into the workings of this "under-ground section of the American Communist Party", led by the late Harold Ware] and the posts that mark their progress through the Federal Government.
The leading committee of the Ware Group included:
August 1933 through February 1934--attorney on the staff of the AAA.
1933--Assistant General Counsel of the AAA.
John J. Abt
1933--Attorney for the AAA.
Charles Kramer alias "Krivitsky"
1933--On the staff of the AAA.
Every one of them was a Communist. Chambers omits Hiss from the list. Hiss, like the others, was, in 1933-1934, a member of both the Ware Group of underground Communists and of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. But his transfer to the staff on the Nye Committee of the Senate, investigating munitions-makers, was in prospect, and Chambers says the Party thought it prudent to separate Hiss from the group. But here in 1933-34, at the outset of the New Deal, are five AAA lawyers: Hiss, Pressman, Witt, Abt, and Kramer, all known to be Communists, and the Assistant Chief of the AAA Legal Division is Abe Fortas, who is not known to be a Communist. It is no wonder the justice is scrupulous in avoiding imputations of guilt by association! John Abt is the one Lee Harvey Oswald said he wanted for his lawyer. One wonders what chance Oswald had of retaining him, though it might have been a problem for Abt to turn him down. The problem never came to a head. Jack Ruby saw to that. The reason Oswald wanted Abt is brought out by William Manchester in the opus, p. 247: [H: Don't you find involvement with such as the "Agricultural Adjustment Administration" a bit interesting--what does Agriculture have to do with anything attached to this mess? Perhaps it is the same as SENDING ARMS TO IRAQ, ETC., THROUGH THE AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT AND CLIFFORD'S BCCI? MY, my.]
....when the Dallas Bar Association's president drove to the station, Oswald declined his assistance, declaring a preference for John Abt, a New York lawyer celebrated for his defenses of political prisoners.
The parallelism of the above with the words of the IJA preamble is striking.
In 1937, Fortas left Yale and went to Washington to work full-time for the Securities and Exchange Commission. From 1934 to 1937 Fortas had worked part-time for the SEC. In 1936, John Abt worked for the SEC--Special Counsel in the case against Electric Bond and Share. It is a small world. Fortas moved on up to the bureaucracy. From SEC he went to the Public Works Administration and from there to the Department of the Interior. In 1942, when he was thirty-two, Abe Fortas was made Under Secretary of the Interior. Old Ickes (Harold the curmudgeon) liked him. So did Franklin D. Roosevelt. Ickes wrote in his diary:
The President spoke in high terms of Abe Fortas' qualities and said that he was thinking of taking him away from me and making him a member of the SEC. I told him Fortas was very important to me.
So that is how Fortas got to be Under Secretary. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing wrong with being in demand in two agencies and getting a promotion.
It was about this time that Abe Fortas and Lyndon Johnson became acquainted. Johnson first went to Congress by special election in 1937, the same year Fortas moved to Washington from New Haven. The young Schemers hit it off together. They palled around, too, with Eliot Janeway and an older lawyer, Edwin Weisl, who was later to become a bitter enemy of Joseph Kennedy. My authority for this is Rowland Evans and Robert Novak. (Lyndon B. Johnson: The Exercise of Power, pp. 8-9, 281.)
Abe Fortas has a way with Presidents. Roosevelt liked him, and Truman liked him, and the latter made him in 1945 an adviser to the United States delegation to the organizational meeting of the United Nations--administered by Alger Hiss as Secretary General! But important as Hiss was, Abe Fortas had already passed him on the rocky road to success. A legal adviser has a kind of status that a strictly administrative office, no matter how high, doesn't have. And Fortas, as Under Secretary of the Interior, would have outranked Hiss protocol-wise, for though State is very much more elegant than Interior, still an Under Secretary is an Under Secretary, and Hiss was several layers down from that level within State.
Fortas' contacts were thoroughly interdepartmental. The following selection from Interlocking Subversion in Government, Part 30: Harry Dexter White Papers, a publication of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, seems worth quoting extensively, though a certain amount of repetition is involved:
On January 4, 1945, Abe Fortas, the Under Secretary of the Interior, wrote to Harry D. White congratulating him on his appointment as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. Fortas felt that the promotion was "completely deserved" and would "strengthen the Government considerably". White expressed his "deep satisfaction" at the note. Fortas was a member of a dinner group which met on May 11 (year not given) at the Athens Cafe, 804 Ninth Street, NW, Washington, D.C., including Dr. [Isador] Lubin, David Niles, Mr. [Paul H.] Appleby, C.B. Baldwin, Dr. [Mordecai] Ezekiel, Oscar Chapman, L [auchlin] B. Currie and others. [White and Currie have attained fame as identified underground Soviet agents; the others are Left Liberals.]
On a letterhead dated May 18, 1942, of the International Juridical Association, 100 Fifth Avenue, New York City, appears the name of Abe Fortas as a member of its national committee. Among his fellow members with records as members of the Communist Party were: Joseph R. Brodsky, Nathan Witt, Leo Gallagher, Lee Pressman, David J. Bentall, Isaac E. Ferguson, and others who have been active in defending Communist cases. The House Committee on Un-American Activities characterized the International Juridical Association as an organization which "actively defended Communists and consistently followed the Communist Party Line" (Report on National Lawyers' Guild, September 21, 1950). It was an official offshoot of the International Labor Defense, cited by the Attorney General as the "legal arm of the Communist Party".
The International Juridical Association was succeeded in the Communist hierarchy by the National Lawyers' Guild. The leadership of the two organizations interlock significantly. In 1937, Fortas was a member of the national executive board of the National Lawyers Guild, which has been cited as subversive by the Attorney General. In 1940, a split occurred in the organization and there was a defection of a large group of well-known anti-Communists. To our knowledge Fortas' name has not appeared on its letterhead since then.
A letterhead of the American Law Students Association shows Prof. Abe Fortas, of Yale Law School, as a member of its faculty advisory board [along with Fred Rodell, by the way]. The American Law Students Association was a part of the American Youth Congress which has been cited as subversive by the Attorney General. It was also an affiliate of the United States Peace Committee, a part of the Communist-controlled peace front. Its letterhead shows union label 209, of the Prompt Press, which prints Communist Party literature.
Abe Fortas was a member of the Washington Committee for Democratic Action, which has defended the interests of individual Communists and whose meetings have been addressed by such well-known Communists as Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Lee Pressman, and Doxey Wilkerson. It was active in 1940 and 1941 during the period of the Stalin-Hitler Pact. (p. xxiv, Italics added)
Abe Fortas defended the "political prisoner" Owen Lattimore against perjury charges based on his testimony before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1952--charges eventually dropped by the Justice Department because of its repeated failure to draft an indictment in terms casuistically acceptable to Federal Judge Luther Youngdahl. The basic charge of the Senate Committee, that Lattimore was "a conscious, articulate instrument of the Soviet conspiracy", was never brought to trial, except in the court of public opinion, where those who have read the record find much that is persuasive in support of the accusation. Professional intellectuals on the other hand, who see no need to read the hearings of a Congressional investigative committee, indignantly reject anything that smacks of "McCarthyism".
In the 1950s, and to a lesser extent today, the intelligentsia preferred not to discuss such a proposition as that "X is an instrument of the Soviet conspiracy," for merely to discuss it is to imply (1) that there IS a Soviet conspiracy, and (2) that it is bad. The intellectuals are not at all sure, and really prefer not to know, about point one, but if by any chance it is true, then they incline to take issue with point two, and in any case certainly do not want to discuss it with the laity. In the interests of open scientific discussion, the intellectuals seem to advocate that all followers of Senator McCarthy ought somehow to be silenced, but if that is not feasible then at least they should be studiously ignored. This is what they mean by freedom of speech. With such brokers in the marketplace of ideas, Abe Fortas acquired much credit by defending a tycoon of the intelligentsia like Owen Lattimore.
Two questions one must never ask: (1) what has Owen Lattimore ever done that makes him such an intellectual? and (2) is he really a Communist? Both these questions are quite beyond the pale. A full professor at one of our great eastern seaboard universities is, like Caesar's wife, simply above suspicion.
Owen Lattimore was first brought to public attention by Senator McCarthy in 1950 as the architect of the Free World's loss of China to the Communists. McCarthy had most of his in-formation from the late Alfred Kohlberg, and the information was straight. Nevertheless, the Senator's use of the importer's knowledge of the Orient-hardened resistance in the fortresses of the Establishment, for Alfred Kohlberg, a patriotic and well-to-do merchant in the Chinese linen trade, who had once himself been a member of the now notorious Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR), had, when he learned the devious pro-Communist line of the IPR, spoken out in intransigent protest. Kohlberg demanded Board action against Communist-line staffers and in other ways made the power structure uncomfortable. In particular, Kohlberg had made an enemy of Arthur H. Dean of the New York law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell, then vice chairman of IPR. Dean was later to become a leading disarmer of America. Though Kohlberg's information of Lattimore was good, McCarthy was bucking the whole financial and legal Establishment as well as the intelligentsia. The cards were stacked against McCarthy before he began. Abe Fortas was a dealer for the house. He represented Owen Lattimore.
Eleanor Lattimore, Owen's wife--who writes for juveniles--has told of the selection of Fortas as her husband's attorney. Lattimore was in Asia when McCarthy began his expose and, though he promptly came back to the States, events here did not entirely wait for him. "I don't know how I happened to think of Abe Fortas," writes Eleanor Lattimore, author of Chapter II in her husband's pitiful book Ordeal by Slander:
...because everybody in Washington knew more about him than I did. [In 1950 most people had never heard of him.] We had met him once at dinner, and heard him talking about the attack on Dr. Condon [Dr. Edward U. Condon, once described as the "weakest link in our atomic security", a charge which he denied] and the way he thought such attacks should be handled. Owen and I both liked what he said but, not dreaming that my husband would ever be in a similar situation, I had not given Mr. Fortas another thought. So it was instinct rather than cleverness that made me telephone him that night to ask for an appointment.
Instinct or no, however, Eleanor Lattimore still sought advice from friends about going to the attorney. The friends were Joseph Fels Barnes and his wife Elizabeth. "Joe was finally convinced," continues Eleanor Lattimore, "it was going to be tough, and he and Betty approved of my talking with Mr. Fortas. I went alone to see him. Strange to say it was the first time I had ever been in a lawyer's office. But in the sea of unreality in which I had been floundering I knew at once that Abe Fortas was another solid rock, like Joe and Betty." (Ordeal by Slander, pp. 36-37.)
Another "solid rock"? What could this mean? Barnes is a world traveler, especially to Russia and Asia. Moreover, Barnes has been identified before a Senate committee by five sworn witnesses as a Communist and as an espionage agent.
Abe Fortas helped Lattimore deny any Communist connection. Not only was Fortas Lattimore's attorney, Fortas helped him write Ordeal by Slander. In the Foreword the professor expresses his gratitude to his lawyer and friend:
The story would have been different, and more tragic, if it had not been for the law firm of Arnold, Fortas and Porter; and particularly for Abe Fortas, who after weeks of exhausting work on the "case" still had wisdom and patience left to give me counsel on the book. (Ordeal by Slander, p. viii.)
Lattimore was American-born but English bred, (early school in Cumberland), had done graduate study at Harvard, been an adviser to Chiang Kai-shek, become an author of prestige books on international relations, and been made director of the Walter Hines Page School of International Relations at Johns Hopkins University.
Lattimore came to owe Fortas a great deal. Whatever the narrowly averted danger from Senator McCarthy's charges in 1950, it was repeated with emphasis in 1952. After extensive hearings before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee (which sedulously avoided dependence on either McCarthy or Alfred Kohlberg), Lattimore was indicted by a Federal grand jury on seven counts of perjury in his denials of Communist activity. Fortas' "wisdom and patience" endured, and Judge Luther Youngdahl was academically judicious. The judge said the terms "promotion of Communism" were not sufficiently defined, and so prevented the trial that would have defined them. The Justice Department in the early Summer of 1955 dropped the charges. This was about the same time that President Eisenhower had his picture taken with Bulganin at Geneva. Neither Lattimore nor Bulganin had ever been cleared of the standing imputations against them, but the world entered an era of ideological detente; everybody said, Aw, the devil with that stuff, McCarthy slowly sickened and died (May 2, 1957), Korea was over, Vietnam and Castro's Cuba were incubating, the first Suez crisis and the Hungarian Revolt was just around the corner. The long sea lanes opening to the humiliation of the U.S. Navy in the Sea of Japan in January 1968, were just ahead; and to the discrediting of the American military and diplomatic presence in Saigon; and to the predictable eviction of American power, and loss of American investment in the Far East. None of these could have been prevented without a real reversal of trends, a reversal that could come only when somebody in the United States learns how to keep a keen lawyer like Abe Fortas from securing the release of a propagandist as mendacious and impudent as Owen Lattimore.
Owen Lattimore had to be impudent to survive, for McCarthy almost had him convicted and punished. Yet the power was on Lattimore's side, as Abe Fortas knew; what he did not know at first was whether Lattimore would use it. At the first interview Abe Fortas asked Eleanor Lattimore: "Will he fight"? He would, as events were to show, but even with enough assurance to take the case Fortas needed a while to learn how tough Lattimore might be. The lawyer thought the professor might be ethically too scrupulous, which seems to have been a bit naive of the lawyer. Fortas wrote Lattimore, who got the letter in London, on his way back from Afghanistan:
As evidence of your non-Communist attitude, [Drew] Pearson broke at some length the story of the Living Buddha and the two other Mongols who are in residence at the [Johns Hopkins] University.... The emphasis in this part of the story will be that these people are refugees from Communism who were brought to this country as a result of your efforts and who are and will be of great assistance in contributing to an understanding of the Far Eastern problem. This may sound somewhat insane to you, but I assure you that we are operating in a situation characterized by insanity, and a certain amount of drama is not only desirable, but also completely unavoidable. (Ordeal by Slander, pp. 20-21, Italics added.)
The attorney continued to his client: "It may be necessary that you get down in the gutter in which we are now operating as a result of Senator McCarthy's personal attack on you. But if we can place the Senator in the gutter where he belongs..." (Ibid.) It was all right with Lattimore.
Ironically enough, Lattimore had wondered if Fortas would fight. At least he says he did. In his opening chapter Lattimore writes:
Then I thought, or tried to think, about Abe Fortas. I remembered that I had once met him at somebody's house at dinner, and that I had had an impression of him as a man with a keen mind and a warm and human personality. But I found I could not fit him into my thinking as my own lawyer, helping me to defend my own case. Never having been involved in any kind of legal proceedings I had a vague feeling that most lawyers are fixers rather than fighters. This fellow McCarthy was obviously a roundhouse brawler and a dirty fighter. A fight with him would be a slugging match. I was all set to slug, but was Abe Fortas going to be the kind of lawyer who would try to make me pull my punches? (Ordeal by Slander, p. 15.)
The two were soon to know each other better. Besides asking Eleanor Lattimore if her husband would fight, Abe Fortas had just one other question to put to her about her husband.
"Look here," he said, "I don't want to find that when Owen was a boy in his teens he foolishly joined something that turned out afterward to be Communist." I laughed. "You don't need to worry on that score," I said. (Ordeal by Slander, p. 15.)
Louis Budenz was reportedly going to tell the Tydings Committee that Lattimore was a Communist, and just for a moment Fortas was apparently a bit shaken, suddenly recollecting what he himself had done earlier, in the International Juridical Association. He was a professor at Yale when he joined IJA, and the IJA connection apparently lasted right down to the time he became Under Secretary of the Interior. Fortas knew that it is a whole lot more comfortable in the politically straight world if you have just never belonged to a Communist or Communist-front organization.
What manner of man is Justice Fortas? He is not an ordinary Supreme Court Justice. He is the superb Schemer who put Lyndon Johnson into the Senate when the voting majority of Texas wouldn't. He is the man Katzenbach "went straight to" when he wanted the Warren Commission set up, and Fortas was certainly the right man to go to, because Fortas had been the first man in Washington that Johnson called after the assassination of President Kennedy.
Abe Fortas is successful. There is a Latin motto, fiat justitia, ruat caelum, translatable as "Let justice be done, though the heavens fall." In Fortas' life the heavens have not fallen. They may not have fallen on Johnson--though his March 1968 abdication would seem to indicate they have. But what will it cost Fortas, in any case? On that high court, he is set for life. The best thing to do is put a man in the White House who won't listen to him on those Opinions which undermine the Constitution. [H: Isn't ever likely, is it?]
Yet the struggle for worldly position has not stopped Abe Fortas from religious and philosophical moralizing, nor has the physiognomic fact observed by New York Times-man Anthony Lewis that there is "no visible sign of sentimentality in Abe Fortas. He has the lidded toughness of, say, a houseman in Las Vegas." Actually the tough guy in Fortas sometimes finds the sensitive moralizer quite useful. In the McCarthy-Lattimore duel Fortas' law firm fired a letter to the Senator saying, "We suggest that a decent regard for the welfare of your country, for the high office you hold, and for elementary Christian virtues, require you immediately to put a stop to this fantastic outrage." (Ordeal by Slander, p. 23) [H: "Christian" virtues?? Oh my...] Since McCarthy was a Christian and Fortas did not claim to be, that seems like a cynical appeal to the other man's values. McCarthy was also a patriot and held the Senate in such high respect that he died after it rejected him.
Writing in 1964 in the Yale Law Journal, which he had edited thirty years before, lawyer Fortas, in an interval of contemplation between consolidating Johnson's position after November 22, 1963 and ascending to the Supreme Court said:
For a justice of this ultimate tribunal, the opportunity for self-discovery and the occasion for self-revelation are unusually great. Judging is a lonely job in which a man is, as near as may be, an island entire. The moment is likely to come when he realizes that he is, in essential fact, answerable only to himself. [H: Hmmnn--not to God or citizen??]
Unlike the letter to Senator McCarthy, this obiter dictum invokes no religious considerations. In this context, you would think it might have, quite legitimately. Taking the awful loneliness of the earthly judge to the edge of contemplation, one could well--this would be the place to do it--say that such a judge was answerable only to the Constitution--and God. But Abe Fortas didn't say it. He said the judge is "answerable only to himself". Of course, he was writing about William O. Douglas.
The boy who walked to religious school in Memphis forty-odd years ago to save streetcar fare (then a nickel) has for a long time now ridden in his own Rolls-Royce. He and his wife Carolyn, who is also a lawyer, are said to have made (before the Court thing came up) more than $200,000 a year. Carolyn Fortas is a tax specialist. Fortas plays the role of a "Liberal," which is to say--for one thing--anti-big-business, and yet he got rich counselling big corporations. I don't care how you explain it, that is basically two-faced. Of course, it is exactly the same thing Johnson's other top Schemer, Clark Clifford, has done, possibly on an even bigger scale. It is, really, one of the formulae of the Establishment. Set up a Big Government, set up Big Business, switch the money back and forth from one to the other, like a man kiting checks between two banks, and you can manage the populace--both those who think they are "Liberals" and those who think they are "Conservatives." Someone has attempted to give a formula for political success: Tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect. It's done now on a bigger scale. The difference is they don't try to spend it all on the WPA or the PWA, they spend it through contracts with big corporations--including big universities. Big Business and the Big Government hold each other up like two sides of a sandwich-board-sign which you and I have to carry around on our shoulders.
Still, as convenient as this marriage of Socialism and Capitalism is, there have to be intermediaries--marriage brokers, marriage counselors. That's where Abe Fortas and Clark Clifford come in. Anthony Lewis of The New York Times says that as a lawyer Fortas "spent less time in courtrooms than in the offices of big corporations, advising them on how to improve their management and enlarge their profits without running afoul of the government." (The New York Times Magazine, August 8, 1965, p. 11.)
Clifford, as we shall see, has done the same thing. Liberals of the naive stripe, who want to feel that Fortas and Clifford belong to them, worry from time to time as to whether this kind of law practice is not somehow selling out to Big Business. Before you answer that question for yourself, remember that while the client may get a government contract and pay less taxes than he would without such lawyers, the government is always assured that its main interests are protected. Tax laws are written so that the revenue from them may be, depending on how they are construed and applied, either high--or very high. Never low.
About two years later--June 4, 1967, to be exact--Fred P. Graham, a lawyer who covers the Supreme Court beat for The New York Times, also had a Times Magazine article about Fortas, with Fortas' photograph on the cover. Graham says that Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, Fortas' mentor from the old, was discovered to be getting a $12,000 a year retainer from a "nonprofit foundation with very thin financial ties to gambling interests in Las Vegas". Foundation official Harry Ashmore, speaking in defense of the corporate virtue, declared, the organized philanthropists in the case would pursue a "Caesar's wife" policy. What they actually did, according to Graham, was to hire Carolyn Fortas, the tax-law-expert spouse of Justice Fortas. [H: My goodness, they REALLY DON'T ever change, do they?] Oddly enough, Carolyn Fortas said the foundation was actually as clean as one of Harry Ashmore's houndstooth jackets. Graham concludes his resume of this episode with the reflection: "That the investigation was concluded without raising any hint of a possible conflict of interest is further evidence of [Abe] Fortas' prowess as a behind-the-scenes mover and shaker." In other words it is Carolyn who is Caesar's wife.
On Fortas' elevation to the Court in July 1965, The New York Times (it has published at least three analytical and evaluative curricula vitae on him) called him an eminence grise, which is what Cardinal Richelieu was called when he governed France for Louis XIII. That, too, may be an exaggeration, for Fortas' influence with Johnson, probably unique in early 1964, has been to some indeterminate but undoubtedly significant degree displaced subsequently by the influence of that other master Schemer, Clark Clifford. (Rostow's influence has never been personal with Johnson. Rostow's influence is almost automatic on whoever is in the White House.)
In a world where the Viet Cong can take the American Embassy in Saigon, and the North Koreans can capture an American vessel on the high seas, it may emerge as an advantage to have been once a force in the International Juridical Association. Even for this we cannot charge Fortas with naivete. Lack of sophistication is the last charge to which he would be vulnerable. According to Anthony Lewis cited in The New York Times Magazine, a lawyer who once worked with Fortas said:
Of all the men I have met, he most knows why he is doing what he is doing. I don't like the s.o.b. [sic!], but if I were in trouble, I'd want him on my side. He's the most resourceful, the boldest, the most thorough lawyer I know.

And I remind you readers:
PROTOCOLS OF ZION:
"We have already established our own men in all important positions. We must endeavor to provide the Goyim with lawyers and doctors; the lawyers are au courant with all interests; doctors, once in the house, become confessors and directors of conscience."
And from a Fifteenth Century Zionist Protocol:
"...As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix themselves up with the affairs of State, in order that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them."
Now, where do I fit in all this gibberish? The Zionist Anti-Christ is my direct enemy. This group of Khazarian role-stealers and heritage-thievers of the Judean peoples--have declared war on GOD of Christed perfection. I speak not of a "person"; I speak of that which is now called by all sorts of non-meaning names which fit no definition as USED. Communism was established by this very GROUP OF ONES CALLING THEMSELVES AND ACTING AS SELF-STYLED JEWS. THEY ARE NOT! YOU HAVE BEEN DUPED! THEY ARE NOT!
Are all the ones in POWER of said lineage? NO--and as soon as they realize THEY TOO HAVE BEEN "HAD" IN THE NAME OF POWER AND GREED, MIGHT WELL LOOK CAREFULLY AT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE--AND YOU MIGHT WELL RISE UP AND SMITE THEM--HUMAN CITIZEN. I will remind you of something very, very important: WITHOUT LAWS SET IN GOODNESS, JUSTICE AND ABSOLUTE FAIRNESS FOR ALL, YOU HAVE MONARCHY AND ANARCHY CONTROLLED BY DICTATORIAL FORCES OF POWER AND COERCIVE FORCE. WHEN THE HIGHEST COUNCILS OF THE LAND SIT IN CORRUPTION AND SELF-APPOINTED KINGDOMING--YOU HAVE LOST FREEDOM IN THE WORST POSSIBLE MANNER--FOR THERE NO LONGER RESIDES JUSTICE AMONG YOU. YOU ARE THE PAWN OF THE ELITE POWER BROKERS HANDING OUT DEATH, LIFE, PRISON OR FREEDOM--ACCORDING TO THAT WHICH GATHERS UNTO THEMSELVES THE SPOILS OF A PLANET WHILE THE MASSES BECOME BLINDLY ENSLAVED AND HERDED LIKE THE BEASTS AS CHATTEL. IT HAPPENS AND MAN DOESN'T NOTICE UNTIL TOO LATE!

FROM CHUCK AND MARY IN NORTH CAROLINA-- LIGHT BRIDGES
Yesterday a letter was faxed to a lot of people, apparently. Chuck and Mary give their return number as FAX 1-704-8984211. It showed up on my doorstep very late last night so we will address it "first" this morning.
SANCTIONS AND C.O.U.P.E.S.
I do not presume to answer questions FOR Mr. Jackson or anyone else--nor do I agree with many things from a lot of people with whom we share and work. Some of you have turned Mr. Jackson into some kind of an encyclopedic guru and others simply want confirmation and information. This is what we are here for, readers, but not to specifically attend everyone's business. I will, however, comment on this particular information because it seriously impacts everyone if true, and everyone if not true. It will speak of killing a president. And, furthermore, it WOULD NOT be Ronn Jackson who would be directly involved--and it is, further, THE major reason Mr. Jackson stays incarcerated--so that it cannot be "assumed" a work of his doing if this takes place as would be set up by "dealers" in the assassination game! The latter part does NOT please Mr. Jackson except that he can see the wisdom of compliance and continued incarceration. The facts are, however, that there are at least two other assassins trained and operable within orders who could accomplish such a task. I ask that all of you who pile the letters onto Mr. Jackson for response--continue the barrage because it keeps him SO BUSY that he can't even consider the possibilities involved here. WE NEED NO KILLING OF ANY KIND TO ACCOMPLISH RECLAIMING OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL GOODLY FUNCTION OF YOUR NATION.
Mr. Jackson is just beginning to understand his purpose and direction--and no longer is "sanctioning" a part of his job--it never WAS with God and citizen.
What is really incredible to witness is the sending forth of the Clintons and Gore on this stupid bus journey--they are not welcomed ANYWHERE. All YOU are shown are the nice parts--the nasty parts are KEPT FROM YOU. Indeed there are evil intents afoot.
WILL THE REAL CLINTON STAND UP?
NO! He can't. The Clintons have already been removed and he was a puppet at best from upstart of his public imaging.
I warn you, citizens of the world, when you act in violence against the LAWS OF GOD AND CREATION--you WILL NOT have the help of same.
I believe the best thing is to print the letter so that any comments make sense to you.
Saturday, July 30, 1994
From: Light Bridges
TO: Whom it may concern:
In a telephone conversation with Ronn Jackson, Ronn said he had agreed to one last job (or sanction or killing or murder) for C.O.U.P.E.S.
Ronn then said to us that he would be willing to tell us more information if we could guess who it was that C.O.U.P.E.S. wanted him to kill.
So Mary and I used an encrypted message in saying our guess to him by saying, "What do you think about Clint Eastwood and his ton of bills?"
This was our way of saying we thought he was going to kill Bill Clinton.
So we said this to Ronn over the phone, and after a long pause on the phone, he said, "Shit, you guessed it!"
So then we had a three or four hour conversation with him on 4-24-94 which has been taped and copied and given to several people. However on this tape we did not mention the subject of Bill Clinton or what C.O.U.P.E.S. wanted Ronn to do. In fact, we have told no one until now.
THE ABOVE MIGHT BE PURE BS FROM A MAN IN PRISON WHO LIKES TO MAKE UP BIG LIES, OR IT MIGHT BE TRUE. SO, IF IT IS TRUE, WE FEEL WE HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL THE PUBLIC SO C.O.U.P.E.S. AND RONN JACKSON CAN BE STOPPED. WE DO NOT BELIEVE IN MURDER, WE BELIEVE IN HOLDING HANDS. WE ARE NOT HAWKS, WE ARE DOVES. I KNOW A LOT OF PATRIOTS WILL NOT AGREE WITH US IN THIS MATTER. [H: No, MOST "real" patriots WILL agree with you in this matter--it is no way to gain anything for your NATION.]
We do know what Larry Nichols and many others have exposed about Clinton and his drug smuggling through Mena, Arkansas, and believe all or most of it to be true. Bill Clinton and C.O.U.P.E.S. need to be put in prison so our United States Government can operate without being sabotaged by the international families and the Federal Reserve Board and the Rockefellers and the C.F.R. and the Bank of England, etc., etc., etc.
If what Ronn is saying is pure BS, then there is no harm done. However, if it is true, then we wash our hands of this information and call the prosecutors in the judicial system to do their job in stopping the treason and injustice from happening.
We know that the FBI, CIA, NSA, NSC, ad nauseam have been infiltrated by anti-Constitutionalists, but there are enough clean people left to get the job done. In 1938 Germany the problem was not too many Nazis, the problem was there was not enough vocal good guys and gals.
So let's use the information highways to our advantage and let the pen work and let the sword sit in the corner and rust!!!
Peace, Love and Light,
Chuck and Mary
* * *
Then came the call to Rick from T. Buckley ["Treasurygate"] and the inquiry as to whether or not Ronn had ever said anything about this to Rick. Answer: IF SO, IT WAS NEVER REPEATED HERE! However, Buckley indicated that Ronn has spoken to him about the same order/action. So what have you? Now, the question comes full circle and back to me--why would that be? This is not my business and to "wash one's hands" as stated above, hardly sounds "new" in expression. I am NOT of your place so I can't do anything save speak about it. IF I WOULD BE PERMITTED--I WOULD NOT. I WILL SHARE ANOTHER LETTER WITH YOU IN A BIT SO LET US FINISH THESE FEW COMMENTS. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND DIFFERENT "ROLES" BEING PLAYED HERE, READERS, I MAY BE ONE OF YOU--BUT I AM NOT "OF" YOU--NOT YET!
CAN "YOU" THINK OF A BETTER WAY FOR THE COMMITTEE TO GET RID OF RONN JACKSON FOREVER?? JUST BARGAIN HIM AWAY ON A MISSION OF SUCH STUPIDITY AS TO GET HIM KILLED OR INCARCERATED FOREVER? COME NOW--THEY KNOW THEY CAN ONLY CONTROL ONE RONN JACKSON IN THIS MANNER--FOR ACTUALLY KILLING THE BEING IS NOT GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND WOULD BE A MOST FOOLISH MANEUVER AGAINST A MEMBER OF THEIR OWN COMMITTEE WHO IS MORE POWERFUL, ULTIMATELY, THAN ARE ANY OF THEM.
I would think it most unfortunate in perception that Ronn would have ever said such a thing to anyone. It does mean, however, that he was approached and it was a plan and probably will be attempted in another way by other parties. CAN YOU SEE--THAT THERE WOULD BE NOTHING GAINED FOR FREEDOM OR NATION--BY MORE ASSASSINATIONS? NOT EVEN KILLING OFF THE ENTIRE BUNCH ON ALL THE NEGATIVE SATANIC COMMITTEES OF THE GLOBE COULD YOU ACCOMPLISH FREEDOM AND GOODNESS! CHANGE THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF MAN--OR YOU CHANGE NOTHING--NO PLACE--NO TIME! YOU CHANGE THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF MAN THROUGH TRUTH IN INFORMATION!
You will note that the information came through sometime in this past April (24th?). That is quite a while ago, readers, and much changes daily--much the less, in several months. However, it does NOT make the suggestion less valid or the agony of sorting out responsibility easier. If, in fact, anything of this sort was spoken to any in this place--it has never been repeated. I would guess that it proves discretion on the part of our TEAM.
WHO ARE MARY AND CHUCK?
Well, they are close enough to be heard and have frequent conversations with Ronn and that is reality. They are the very ones who were to put Ronn's books to press as publishers, etc.
Have they betrayed Ronn some way? No! They are SERVING his security in this very telling and sharing. I WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY DAMAGE UNTO THEM AND I SUGGEST THAT IT BE SEEN TO, MONITORS! THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE TRYING TO DO RIGHT--AND THIS WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO! I trust the "reasons" are equally as "right" for I cannot but wonder why it took so long to show and tell. Would it be only after they got nothing expected? Please, consider "reasons" for actions and make sure, always, readers, that your "reasons" match your words--FOR GOD KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE AND HE ONLY JUDGES BY INTENT--NOT WORDS!
Ronn Jackson is a very shrewd and brilliant mind. He set up possible "leaks" and found them! This very leak turns out to be his security blanket. Thank you, Chuck and Mary.
One major reason we turned our attention to other resources for back-up information on the network of high-level players, is that very focus. We need to inform you with that which you would NOT receive, because this information from Jackson WILL BE PUBLISHED.
In the inability to extricate Ronn from the incarceration system it has interrupted a lot of promises. One such promise was a major funding for Light Bridges, computers, print equipment and thus and so. This has NOT been forthcoming as has neither funding promised to ANYONE. Does this mean Ronn is a liar, a fool, a deceiver--or, not able to do anything about such business? The latter--but it doesn't ease the "minds" of participants when the happenings begin to look this negative. I don't know what arrangements Ronn may have made with them. IT IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS--IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH "HAND WASHING"!
I WOULD GUESS THAT THIS WILL NOT HELP BIND A LOVING FRIENDSHIP AND, AS REQUESTED OF CONTACT WE OFFER THE LETTER AND CONTACT, INFORMATION: Charles Wright & Mary Craig, Light Bridges, Fax: 1-704-898-4211; Voice: 1-704-898-4404.
I WOULD GUESS THAT THIS ONE LETTER IS ABOUT AS GOOD A THING TO HAPPEN IN BEHALF OF RONN JACKSON WHILE HE SITS IN PRISON--AS ANY SHIELD THAT COULD HAPPEN. HE CERTAINLY CAN'T BE BUMPING OFF ANYBODY WHILE SITTING IN A NEVADA PRISON, WHETHER IT BE IN CARSON CITY OR JEAN. THUS WE MAY ALL LIVE TO SERVE ANOTHER DAY--IN ANOTHER WAY!
Ronn has also promised to fund the paper, CONTACT, as well as to fund a lot of groups of patriots and, as well, individual parties who are in great trouble. He and others from the same services of past experience seem to have ability to do "that" if and when they can break loose and get something attended business-wise. Have YOU tried to shift money--even in a local bank and even a small sum? How can you shift it from Europe when both ends of the corruption net are RIGHT THERE? Ronn got money shifted through the New York system and to the Fed system in San Francisco--for CONTACT. This, only to have the Feds stop it, and hold it--illegally and knowingly illegally. The money has been recovered but was not released. No, we are not talking "small" sums--we are speaking of multi-millions.
WHO IS WHO?
I am not going into mysterious reproduction systems or who is/was who and how and what they are doing BACK in your play. I will tell you that it would be wise to find out everything you can about ones such as Thomas Paine--and go further up the ladder--and find out the full history of, say, ST. GERMAIN. Germain has showed up in every generation since God alone knows when! He was sometimes a fine fellow, sometimes a rat-fink. What he did, however, was ALWAYS started in honor and goodly intent--only to be spoiled and rotted by destroyers. He was Frances Bacon who was William Shakespeare and thus and so. He would simply be around in the busy times and vanish--even to the point that funerals would be had only to find the "box" quite empty. He was at your Constitution writing--and I would think it appropriate that he be back now! He dictated information to Dharma which has gotten her into a lot of legal hassle. I think he will participate in getting her OUT of it or he shall answer--SOON--to me, his Compatriot!
Germain was always IMPORTANT, high-level "important" at every station. He was known by MANY, MANY names so don't get crazy, readers--YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THAT WHICH THE ADVERSARY WOULD LIKE YOU NOT TO BELIEVE!
When God gets BUSY--the "busy" get going! I would watch the goodly things that Ronn Jackson does as he AWAKENS (which he already has done; HE CAN REMEMBER--YOU CAN'T-- YET!)
Do I or did I approve of one, St. Germain? NO, in most instances I did not--but my job and my mission are only the same as is his as far as the INFORMATION task is concerned. There will be the need for physical leadership and direction--THAT IS NOT MY MISSION! MY PRESENCE IS NOT YET EVEN DESIRABLE, MUCH THE LESS, NECESSARY.
YES INDEED, I WOULD REALLY TAKE A LOOK AT THE HISTORY--THE REAL HISTORY OF SIR ST. GERMAIN. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE A WHOLE HECK OF A LOT ABOUT HIM--AND NEITHER WILL THE "I AM" PEOPLE. BUT HE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST COHANS AND MASTERS OF ALL REMEMBERED HISTORY--ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR A WAY TO MAKE "MANKIND" "WORK"; ALWAYS OBSERVING AND WRITING ABOUT THE NATURE OF MAN--EVEN WITHIN ROYALTY. HE STAGED THE FRENCH REVOLUTION--I BELIEVE THE HEAD-CHOPPING GOT A BIT HEAVY THEN, ALSO. NO, I DO NOT RECOGNIZE VIOLENCE AS ANY SOLUTION--EVER. I HOLD HIGHER RANK AND HAVE TRAVELED FARTHER. UNLESS MAN FINDS BETTER THAN VIOLENCE--THERE WILL NEVER BE PEACE, FREEDOM OR, MUCH THE MORE, PERFECTION, IN YOUR REALMS.
Be patient, readers, while we attend a child in need of game-playing:

5602 Tumbleweed Circle NE,
Brooks, Oregon 97305; 503-463-4229.
[H: It is refreshing that such a letter is not anonymous as is the usual stance of insulting individuals.]
17 July, 1994 [H: The way he writes the date is a dead giveaway of who and what this party is!]
P.O. Box 27353
Las Vegas, Nevada 89126
CONTACT, July 5, 1994, Pg. 61, "The Test is What You DO With Challenges"
Somebody masquerading as a friend, gave me a copy of CONTACT some time back. The material got my attention and generated a call to your 800 number, leading to a subscription by me. It did very little to produce any information but I did learn, or at least was told, that you are an etheric being.
After digesting several issues of CONTACT [H: Several issues of the paper? My, my, how informed can you get--since I have written over 104 BOOKS, hundreds of papers and thousands of tapings--this must make YOU very, very INFORMED!], I believe it is safe to say that you do have a lot to say in these papers. In this issue you got just a little noisy and loudmouthed for a ball of smoke so I thought I would give you the benefit of my observations.
I would like to see a little documentation regarding the great hero Bo Gritz. I no longer believe him to be the white hat he tries to appear but put it down to his being misled because of his own lack of expertise in some areas. If you can prove he is as you say, spit it out, I will immediately confront him with it. [H:Oh my, good sir, I am quite sure you need no documentation for such confrontation for surely the information just jumps onto you without need of research. Why should I, a smoke-ball, supply you with anything? Perhaps he only needs YOUR "expertise" in all the obviously missing areas of his own.]
You do run off at the mouth about everyone out here being so dilatory and doing nothing [H: I have never used the word "dilatory".], believing nothing, and making excuses. Hatonn, old spook [H: Thank you for recognizing my finer qualities. Do you suggest I am simply a spook as in vapor--or a spy out in the cold?], I will match efforts with you any day. I have given everything I have to the point of destroyed health and poverty and I am still in there pitching. [H: Gosh, sir, how greedy of you to think we write all these papers JUST FOR YOU!] I'm tryin' and that, Casper, is all a steer can do. [H: Ah, but sir, if you KNOW that you are a steer and not a bull--why not act in wisdom and intelligence and quit tryin' and start doing something intelligent? If you suggest that somehow you have been castrated--and know it--why suggest you can't help it if you are not a stud? I find your example interesting--and about as intelligent as the rest of your ob-servations from "several issues of a paper".] I know a whole lot of others that have done the same and languished in hell holes for their efforts. Look up men like Tupper Sausy, Alan Stang, Rudy Stanko, Yorrie Kahl, Kaltenberger, Bill Benson, Red Beckman, on and on and be aware that those men are out here where you are throwing your shit.
I have no problem with that really, just consider the source as one who was probably still wearing jammies with feet in them when I started drawing my SS. I do have a problem with your apparent claims that you have some sort of an inside track with God, a direct franchise, and never mind that guy called Jesus. You have got a real problem there. I suggest in all seriousness and concern for your welfare, that you get that problem solved at once. [H: Indeed, I take your suggestion, sir; YOU are a much better spokesman for the perfection of JESUS CHRIST.]
You may be an etheric being, an angel, a just man made perfect, pure spirit, pure intelligence, pure power and pure as the driven snow, but you are not pure enough to qualify as a top kick for God, that is the spot reserved for a man [H: a MAN?] named Jesus Christ who earned it. [H: Ah yes--you must have been there? And, sir, did you base all this information on a few issues of a biblical newspaper or what, Sir? I assume God made YOU the chief JUDGE and counsellor?] If you want to talk with God it would be best to go through the proper channels. [H: Proper channels? What channels--if, as you say, Jesus Christ is God--what CHANNELS do you now suggest? Perhaps your infinite KNOWLEDGE came from going through the "proper" channels--instead of to GOD!] He might just zap you into even less than smoke.
You know the drill and I refuse to honor the sheer stupidity of your statements by attempting rational discussion about them with such an obvious spiritual cripple. [H: Fine, sir, for I don't believe you would recognize a "rational" discussion under any circumstances. I believe you might look in the mirror, sir, for you seem to know a lot about spiritual cripples if you can so judge!] As the saying goes, I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person. Think it over!!! [H: Likewise!!!]
Your diatribe against Bo Gritz included some reference to the Coalition For Human Dignity [H: I may have quoted from it--I doubt I had much of a "diatribe" and I don't "hang around" with them--I don't recall the subject as you describe it--I do not, in fact, recall ever hearing the name of Coalition for Human Dignity.] I have a copy of their report and also some of their other garbage. If you are hanging around with such people as that, no wonder you talk so squirrelly at times, they are queer as a three dollar bill, or are you one too? [H: You just proved you are a fine example of CHRISTIAN NON-JUDGMENTAL LEADERSHIP QUALITY.] There were a couple of references to residence in Portland, I live very close to Portland. If you are an etheric being, why don't you just employ a smidgen of that there astral projection or whatever and come on over, we can have a good discussion about all this.
[H: I assume you will have Jesus Christ there also, since you seem to know all about his business and you assume to represent him as an authority? Sir, this being that you insult by your very presence--TRAVELS WITH ME AND THIS IS HIS PROGRAM UNDER-WAY. YOU INSULT HIM BY YOUR VERY LANGUAGE AND I DOUBT IT SHALL BE "ME" WHO IS ZAPPED FOR BEING MISINFORMED OR PRESENTING MYSELF AS SOMETHING I AM NOT. You claim to be a Christian and prove otherwise in every breath!]
God bless you anyhow, why not, none of us deserve it. [H: Speak for yourself--and at last, you have put the facts wherein they lie--when you say "none of US". I deserve HIS blessings as does every God-respecting being. I cannot answer FOR you.]
Sincerely_____________ sig. ________________

What does it require to be a "top kick for God"? I would surmise that I am not the "spiritual cripple" here. This is, however, more interesting than a similar writer once wrote--that I was a "...horney, sex-deprived queer needing a good f______ !
So be it, I thank the good sir for his attention to my shortcomings. This is "obviously" the very type of person who will regain your national Constitutional LAW and return goodness and Christ unto your nation. Are we all to be impressed with your signature and "sui juris"? It appears that quite possibly you are a frustrated lawyer of some kind who would have some humble patriot trappings to fool the people. Good luck.

AS THE WORLD TURNS
There are a couple of things I ask to be made sure go in this paper:
1. Michael Silverhawk's current valid address for all things to do with the Refounding Amendment. [Editor's note: National Refounders Empowerment Center Ltd.; P.O. Box 27740; Las Vegas, NV 89126.]
2. Some, information regarding the "Candace" conference calls. [Editor's note: This is an ongoing weekly patriot phone conference network. For more information call Candace at 1-610582-7400. You'll hear a dial tone, then dial 1119, you'll hear another dial tone, then dial extension No. 401. Allow ample time for ringing to begin; when ringing stops you are connected to the conference call. Wait for moderator, Candace; if busy, hang up & redial. If you have someone or something you'd like to put on the agenda, fax it to 417-548-3104. Candace says, "Join fellow American leaders every Wednesday, 10 p. m. Eastern Time.]
3. Standby information regarding Ray Renick. [Editor's note: You can still write to Ray do: San Luis Obispo County Jail, P.O. Box 15409, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406. Rick Martin has just completed a face-to-face meeting with Ray as we go to press and suggests that our readers send Ray some warm & uplifting words of support. To convey that Ray is in a chemically "subdued" mental state is a tactfully understated report of the facts. Thus Ray could really use--and would deeply welcome--the lift that a sincere and encouraging note always provides.]
Ray is due for a "hearing" tomorrow having now been established through the appeals as "fit for standing trial", etc. A nasty, unintimidated lawyer has been acquired for him and maybe there is, at last, hope for his ability to have some kind of a non-burial situation. He is being transferred and by next paper we should have a place for you to reach him by mail. Rick Martin is attending the hearing and will come back with more information.
YOU DO HAVE IMPACT--YOU ARE GETTING THE JOBS DONE THAT NO AMOUNT OF "TRYING" HAS BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH. PLEASE, PLEASE, keep pen at hand and a piece or two of paper--because you are going to march across this nation in behalf of your brothers in full force of the word, Constitution and remind the ones who went before--that they have not served in vain.
In fact, here is the next brother who must be given some hope and support. He is a member of the intelligence corps who is now in a Federal Prison on "no" charges--just for knowing too much. This is all wrapped up with the Israelis--even to the Chicago Israeli Consulate. He was a major "team" player in the dirty trenches, along with several others who yet remain alive--and they need help. This one is going to, like Gunther and Ronn, TELL! In fact, he is being moved to a HIGHER-SECURITY FEDERAL PRISON TO BETTER HIDE HIM. I DON'T 'THINK WE WILL LET THEM HIDE HIM LONGER, READERS. HE IS IN FLORIDA NOW AND THE PLANS ARE TO MOVE HIM FOR BURIAL IN LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS. (Well, that is stupid--we ALREADY know that address because of our dear brother Farmer, Krikava.)
I want to share Michael's letter (God does work in mysterious ways--one mention of this man in Contact and HE GOT WORD OF IT!).
PLEASE WRITE HIM AND AT THIS TIME LET IT BE IN SUPPORT BECAUSE HE CAN'T RESPOND VERY OPENLY YET. PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO ENCLOSE AN ENVELOPE OR TWO--STAMPED. HE IS LIKE THE OTHERS--ALLOWED ONLY A MERE FEW STAMPS AND NO SUPPLIES. WE WILL WORK ON GETTING HIM PAPER, ETC., AS WE MOVE ALONG HERE--WHAT HE NEEDS NOW IS TO KNOW HE IS NOW IN "FOCUS".
MICHAEL MAHOLY 19365-009 (inmate number)
TALLAHASSE, FL 32301-3400
(Editor's note: since this was written there has been a change in his circumstances; his address as of July 1995 is: MICHAEL MAHOLY 19365-009 (inmate number) Kingsbury Bldg.; Room #001 P.M.P. 700; Yankton, S.D. 57078.)
July 22, 1994
I would first like to thank you for taking an interest in my circumstances that have led to my imprisonment. I had just recently started to receive the newspaper CONTACT, due to a very good friend of mine, B.W. I find that your news reports are "dead on target", and reward the readers with valuable data.
In the July 12th, 1994 issue, the Commander had briefly stated my name. I want to thank you very much for this input, and any future publicity you may offer in my defense.
If you are interested in what vital information I have, concerning much of military operation tactics, please advise me. I will tell you that the Feds want me silenced, as they know I have very damaging data.
I was arrested in Little Rock, Ark., just 4 blocks from "Bubba Clinton's" Governor's mansion. I sold drugs to Rodger, Bubba's little "bubba". I own property six (6) miles from "White-Water" properties in North-Central Arkansas. This area is full of remote air-strips used for smuggling drugs.
I also know of "Bubba's" most prized "hit men" whom are made up of several Arkansas Troopers and various police agencies and who are responsible for several deaths.
So if you think that you would like to communicate in the near future, please contact me. The FBI and Secret Service have been hounding me, and in the near future I am going to be transferred to a higher-level of security at Leavenworth, Kansas. So time is of the essence.
I am looking forward to talking with you as I have much to tell and share.
I will write you as much as possible, until what little postage stamps I have runs out. If it weren't for people like B.W. and her friends, I would have run out of postage funding long ago. I only make $5.70 per month, and it goes for personals.
Thank you for your concern and efforts. Please give my best to the people at your command post.
Captain Michael Maholy
OK, readers--this needs IMMEDIATE and RUSH attention to cover this man in attention, for attention and focus is the ONLY WAY TO BRING ANY SHIELDING. PLEASE, BURY THE PLACE IN MAIL--AND LET THEM KNOW THAT BIG "WHITE" BROTHER IS NOW ON WATCH! IT IS TIME TO CREATE YOUR MIRACLES! Please check to see how you can get small cash gifts into his account. We did it for Gunther with small money-orders in $50, $100 or so, amounts directly made out to him with HIS inmate number (listed above). Perhaps Karen at CLC could call and check this out. There is no need to send that which will be confiscated and perhaps as we move along we can have a fund at CONTACT or with B.W.. Prisoners are not allowed much more than just small amounts for personal needs, snacks, stamps, paper, etc., so greater funds need to be put into trust somewhere for later needs.
After we get some of these more urgently needed people OUT and can gain their help and resources--WE CAN GET A WHOLE LOT OF INNOCENT PEOPLE BACK INTO FREEDOM--THIS IS HOW YOU TAKE BACK YOUR NATION--ONE STEP AT A TIME AND THEN LIKE THE FLOODGATES ARE OPENED! LET US MAKE GOD "RIGHT"-- PLEASE.

STATE OF THE PHOENIX INSTITUTE
Commander Hatonn caught me tooting my horn about the Institute's being in its best financial condition ever and pointed out that all our readers and lenders (including George Green, I'm sure) would find that information most interesting. So I seem to have volunteered (again--will I ever learn?) to pass along the good news.
The impending "return to the Gold Standard" along with the run-up in Gold prices that that implies, coupled with the rumors of new currency and the possibility of concurrent devaluation seems to have "shook the tree", resulting in several good-sized loans to be made to the Institute. This has allowed us to further diversify and deepen our reserves so that any lawful inquiry into the solvency of the Institute would surely result in "no action".
Another comforting event that has moved the Institute even further out of danger is John Schroepfer's escape from his being "institutionalized" by his estranged wife, Eleanor, who had been appointed as his conservator, and his filing for divorce from her. Due to the obvious conflict of interest she is no longer qualified to serve as conservator and, with the help of the Friends of John, we expect that he will not be re-incarcerated. The BIG SURPRISE was to learn that, in California, a divorce action "freezes" all major financial transactions which forecloses Eleanor from continuing to participate with George Green and Leon Fort (through the attorney George Abbott) in their continuing attempt to put the Institute into "receivership". George's violation of the confidentiality portion of the settlement agreement with Leon Fort had already removed Leon as a credible claimant so there are really none left. (George Green has never qualified because he was not a lender.)
The Institute continues to do its legitimate function of lending funds to CONTACT and Phoenix Source Distributors to carry on the publishing and to "emerging corporations" to start their part of the "projects". This state of affairs is such a blessing that we take this opportunity to thank all of you readers for your continuing support and all of you lenders for staying with us.
REC #1 HATONN
SAT., AUG. 6, 1994 8:46 A.M. YEAR 7, DAY 355
SAT., AUG. 6, 1994
"IN THE BEAUTY OF THE LILIES CHRIST WAS BORN ACROSS THE SEA. WITH A GLORY IN HIS BOSOM WHICH 'TRANSFIGURES YOU AND ME."
No, he either was not born in a cattle stall OR he was NOT born in the lilies. Which is it? Does it matter? WHY? Is the liar the one who began the probable scenario of a "Jesus" being born and placed in a manger OR did the writer of the Battle Hymn of the Republic flub his lines? WHY DOES IT MATTER ENOUGH TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION? Because I am weary of being considered some FORTUNE TELLER, SOOTHSAYER or MYSTIC, if considered anything at all.
This is going to, in a matter of minutes, focus on one "Treasurygate" Buckley. I like Buckley but I am going to point out a few things to you readers who are involved with him, know about him and Gold! Certificates and a relationship to ME--who Mr. Buckley says he does not believe in--(Hatonn or my scribe).
Well, sorry about this statement, friends; he does pronounce his undivided attention to Jesus "Christ" and then turns about and DENIES HIM. How? By denying the possibility that this entity is doing right now what has been expected throughout the ages--a return WITH MESSENGERS TO YOUR PLACE! Regardless of what Mr. Buckley STATES--he cannot have it one way OR THE OTHER--he gets both or he gets NEITHER.
Now, upon WHAT does he base his denial of one, Hatonn? He says that I said he was told by Ronn Jackson about a sanction--regarding Bill Clinton and "that is not true!". Well, friends, this is what I am weary about--I am NOT your individual story-line play director. Number one, I was told that he was told by Jackson--technically, I suppose, he was only told by Jackson that the "Committee was trying to exact one more sanction" in order to gain Jackson's release from prison. I DO NOT CARE HOW OR WHY TOMMY BUCKLEY WAS TOLD ABOUT THE INFORMATION BORNE IN A LETTER TO EVERY TOM, DICK AND HARRY, FBI, CIA,--EVERYBODY WHO COULD HURT JACKSON, FROM MARY AND CHUCK OF LIGHT BRIDGES. Now, am I blasting Mary and Chuck? No, but they surely are blasting my friends, myself and our resources. They did what was assumed right to do--good! They involved themselves BECAUSE things were not going their way and somehow it was "figured out" that Buckley's failures might well be resulting from Ronn's lack of production.
So far Ronn Jackson has not only NOT damaged either party--but say what? How is it that NOW somehow Ronn is blamed for failures simply because he said he knew information--and by Buckley's own words--DID?
AGENT OR FRIEND OR BOTH OR NEITHER?
Good grief, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
I am not going to take time to repeat Buckley's long newsletter or his hot-line phone calls which go on and on but I can promise you from here on in--there shall be no further assistance from this sector unless there is at the least an open mind to possibilities. The promises at upstart of Treasurygate seemed to include the doing GOOD for nation and mankind--MOST PARTICIPANTS PUT IN THEIR MONEY EXPECTING BILLIONS EACH IN RETURN--AND DAMNED LITTLE IS NOW BEING PLACED FOR THE GOODNESS OF GOD'S WORK OR FREEDOM OF MAN--MUCH THE LESS HU-MANS.
From WHERE and HOW did Mr. Buckley happen to come into control of such massive value in certificates? He states they are into the multi-trillions of dollars of value. Were they HIS? Where did HE get them? Do you see that without information I cannot state anything but negative drivel--just as he assumes and does regarding both myself and CONTACT? This also includes Rick Martin of CONTACT who has done nothing except help and publicize both Buckley and Treasurygate. THERE IS NOTHING IN RETURN, NOTHING EXPECTED AND YET, NOW, SOMEHOW--IT IS MADE TO APPEAR THAT THE VERY ONES WHO HELPED ARE THE INSULTING PARTY--THIS, IS THE INSULT! "WE" have NOTHING expected, or offered, through such as "Treasurygate".
Whatever the past history may be of one Ronn Jackson--he is at the least a "special forces" person of some kind--with at least six known Social Security numbers, several identities but usually bearing the same name, and thus and so--a prime picture of a GOVERNMENT AGENT!
You are told that THIS Ronn Jackson with an IQ rating (by the Government) of over 217 points--graduated next to last in his senior [high school] class. Interesting!?!?
Ronn hasn't hidden things from you--WE ALONE PUBLISHED SOME OF THE FIRST VOLUME OF CAMELOT. THIS MAN IS AN ADMITTED ASSASSIN--DO YOU NOT THINK IT A PROBABILITY THAT HE HAS HAD A RATHER MORBID AND INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT CHILDHOOD AND EXPERIENCE? WOULD IT NOT BE DOUBLY TERRIBLE TO BE SO BRIGHT AND BE MISTREATED IN THE MANNER IN WHICH, IT WILL BECOME KNOWN, WAS RONN JACKSON? Stop it readers--it so happens that GOD has tried to attend some of the "churches" in HIS name--and was THROWN OUT AS A MISFIT AND HIPPY! Yes, indeed, the same "Jesus Christ"--running his own testing system. So you see, it is WHAT A MAN IS THAT IS IMPORTANT--TO GOD. NEVER WHAT A MAN "WAS"! I suggest you stop "JUDGING"--either Jackson or Jesus.
I want to point out that information valuable to Buckley or anyone else involved in this game--has been right on target and checked out! Did he get it clandestinely? Did he simply pick it up from other writers and CONTACT? Who cares?? I want to remind all of you that all five volumes of the CAMELOT series WERE WRITTEN LONG BEFORE MR. JACKSON WAS SO MUCH AS INTRODUCED TO ANYONE OF THE CURRENT PLAYERS--INCLUDING CONTACT, AND CERTAINLY--MR. BUCKLEY OR LIGHT BRIDGES!
PHONE CREDIT CARD NUMBERS
Come now, Mr. Buckley, on that same phone NUMBER there were calls made from other places--better check out "Texas" on that "stolen" number! Another thing that Mr. Jackson IS REALLY GOOD AT--IS HAVING ONES WHO CAN INSTANTLY GET INFORMATION FROM ANY COMPUTER SYSTEM IN THE WORLD!
MR. JACKSON OR CONTACT ARE NOT THE PROBLEM WITH ANY RESOLUTION TO THE TREASURYGATE PROBLEMS AND IT WOULD APPEAR THAT YOU RATHER DESERVE TO LOSE SOME VERY SUBSTANTIAL HELP BY THIS KIND OF BLAME AND SANCTIMONIOUS, RELIGIOUS "HOLIER THAN THOU" TYPE OF BEHAVIOR.
WHO IS/WAS MOHAMMED (BOYLES)?
Do you really think this man was somehow not watched, not followed and not susceptible to attracting murder? He didn't produce for YOU--why do you now blame others for his own possible actions. This place (Tehachapi) is important also. There was a full military operation in which MY OWN CREW AND SHUTTLE SHIP TOOK VISIBLE PART (and was reported) in San Luis Obispo County within the year. Do you think calls, including some to "sex hotlines" were made on a stolen card from Tehachapi--accidentally? I am not impressed with your deductions, Mr. Buckley!
Do "I" expect an apology? Of course not, because somehow GOD OR GOD'S TROOPS DO NOT DESERVE EITHER THANK-YOUS OR APOLOGIES--JUST ACCEPT BLAME AND CONFUSION AND INSULT IN PIOUS UNCONDITIONAL "LOVE"! Well, that may be--but some others in this picture not only deserve apologies--but had better be receiving same or I think you can realize the wondrous LACK of help there will be forthcoming in the future for this, now-becoming, UNWORTHY "CAUSE".
Will Ronn Jackson continue to help Treasurygate? I don't know--I am not Mr. Buckley OR RONN JACKSON. I DO want to tell you readers, however, that Mr. Jackson can destroy that last tiny thread of possibility for Mr. Buckley. Fortunately, Jackson WANTS TO HELP SAVE YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL FORM OF GOVERNMENT AND THIS COUNTRY. We note that Treasurygate has members and would be very helpful in "numbers" of participants in such an effort--but the basis of Treasurygate is individual acquisition of MONEY and that indicates an almost lost cause. The "time of the Lord IS AT HAND". When the thrust of fulfillment of "cause" is toward the negative aspect and damage to the whole of the citizenry--then it is difficult to offer too much assistance to anyone only to be BLAMED and called a liar and thief. I wish all of you in Treasurygate well.
By the way, Mr. Buckley, I would like to REPEAT something. The Saddam Hussein certificate DID NOT COME TO CONTACT FROM RONN JACKSON--RONN JACKSON GOT HIS COPY FROM CONTACT! SO WHO IS THE POSSIBLE BIGGER FALSE CONCLUSION ACCEPTOR? NANU-NANU!
I don't care if Mr. Jackson were the "Devil" himself--he has only HELPED EVERYONE OF YOU INVOLVED. If he is a simple "con man"--he is AT THE LEAST, AN INFORMED (ABOUT EVERYTHING) CON MAN. He has called the right kind of attention to you each and all--he certainly has not damaged your "chances" as he has focused attention, gathered in interested parties--AND CAUSED THE ELITE TO PAY ATTENTION. WHAT DID YOU HAVE BEFORE MR. JACKSON THAT WAS SO CONFOUNDED WONDERFUL? It seems to me that we have been sharing and assisting Treasury-gate for a VERY LONG TIME NOW while everyone waits for NOTHING to get finished or any payoff at all. Now, within weeks--somehow, it is the fault of one Ronn Jackson--who is yet in prison--and a newspaper for printing the ONLY ACCURATE DOCUMENTATION ABOUT TREASURYGATE IN AN EFFORT TO ASSIST--BECAUSE SOME OF OUR BEST FRIENDS ARE INVOLVED!!!!
I can promise you that Mr. Jackson had VERY GOOD REASONS FOR TELLING THE "CLINTON" STORY! He is EXACTLY who he claims to be--perhaps YOU just haven't found out WHO HE CLAIMS TO BE?
One other small point I wish to offer in this brief response to the last Treasurygate lambast at us and Jackson is to note one "reason" for distrust of Jackson as offered by Buckley. Buckley says that Jackson wouldn't give the name of the "Undersecretary". Well, I don't believe that MR. BUCKLEY gives the name of MR. IMPORTANT either--and called Keith Boyles "Mohammed". I'm sorry but discretion moves in both directions--AND YOU HAVE PROVEN THAT YOU WILL RAT-ON AND DAMAGE RONN JACKSON TO THE VERY LIMIT OF HIS LIFE AND ACTUALLY DENY ME, SENT IN ANSWER TO YOUR VERY OWN PRAYERS TO THAT ONE YOU CALL JESUS, CHRIST AND GOD! THANK YOU VERY MUCH! THEN YOU ONES STATE THAT YOU WILL "GIVE HIM AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE OTHERWISE" or words to that effect. FORGET IT, brothers, he, just like me, HAS TO PROVE NOTHING TO ANYONE--ESPECIALLY TO YOU WHO WOULD BLACK-BALL, DIRTY MOUTH, DENY AND DEMAND-FROM. PROVE SOMETHING? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PROVE YOURSELVES--OR, IS IT POSSIBLE YOU HAVE? All you have to do to "PROVE ME"--IS GO LOOK AT THE SHIPS WITH COLORED LIGHTS EVERY NIGHT OF YOUR LIVES--RIGHT NOW--WE CAN BE SEEN BY DAY OR NIGHT!
Chuck writes some interesting observations at the end of one of his letters which includes "Let's move from death threats to love hugs". Sounds good? Perhaps! It is a fact however that the "assumed" kiss of "love" has often been the "kiss of death". AND, remember that more back stabbings are done through the "love-hug" position than ANY other position as it places the hands in proper position for same!
Further, suggesting that Mr. Jackson TELL you where the active nuclear bombs are located so the "proper U.S. authorities" can get them is also a bit difficult to understand. WHO ARE THE "PROPER" U.S. AUTHORITIES????? Secondly: NOT ONLY MR. JACKSON--BUT "I" HAVE TOLD YOU EXACTLY WHERE THOSE LIVE BOMBS ARE LOCATED, HOW AND WHY! DO YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT AN APPEAL TO THE "CIA, FBI, NSA, NSC, USSS, THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM, CONGRESS, ETC." GOOD PEOPLE WILL DE-TOX THOSE BOMBS?? IT IS ONE SURE WAY OF GETTING THEM DETONATED. PONDER THAT.
I would also suggest that Buckley look very carefully at his "friend" (of a very short while) and consider instead of Jackson taking him "down the wrong path"--where was Boyles ACTUALLY TAKING BUCKLEY? OH? PROVE IT!
Buckley seems to place a lot of importance on this person (Jackson) and on this limited-distribution paper (CONTACT). I suggest that CONTACT drop Mr. Buckley from the free mailing list, please. Only portions of the paper which he chooses to use to destroy you, are being read--the remainder denied--by his own words. GOD GETS TIRED OF TRYING TO REACH THROUGH THE MORASS OF TANGLED WEBS AND TRAPS TO OFFER INSIGHT!
I can guarantee you something else, readers. If Ronn Jackson is a total fraud, con man, liar, or whatever--I WANT SUCH A BRILLIANT BRAIN WORKING WITH ME--NOT AGAINST ME. I ACCEPT HIM FOR THAT WHICH HE PROCLAIMS AND I SHALL CALL HIM BY WHATEVER NAME "HE" WISHES TO UTILIZE AS A LABEL. I AM NOT HERE TO JUDGE, DENOUNCE OR CRITICIZE ONE, RONN JACKSON. HE EXPRESSES DESIRE AND FULL INTENT TO WORK WITH ME (OF COURSE, HE DOES HAVE THE ADDED ADVANTAGE OF KNOWING ME) AND DO SOMETHING TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITY (WHICH IS QUITE UNLIMITED) FOR GOD AND COUNTRY. I WISH I COULD GET SUCH COMMITMENT FROM THE REST OF YOU WHO CLAIM GLORIOUS DESIRE AND TOTAL FOCUS--WHILE ACTUALLY SEEKING UNRELENTINGLY THE NEGATIVE FACTS TO PROVE WHY A MAN OR A THING WILL NOT WORK. IF YOU GIVE A TENTH AS MUCH ENERGY INTO MAKING A THING WORK AND CREATING A POSSIBILITY INTO PROBABILITY AND THEN INTO REALITY--WHAT A NICE WORLD THIS WOULD BE!
GAYE AND EVELYN
Thank you for coming. Dharma and E.J. need your love and support for I have required incredible service of them for these past seven years. I would speak of that now,
SEVEN YEARS--FROM AUG. 17, 1987
Doris and E.J. were told in the Fall of 1986 that their lives would be hard, publicly terror-filled and BUSY, beginning then and running at least the following seven years. I did, however, promise that I would attend them and that which would appear terrible would work out--and it has. It may not seem like it has worked out "goodly" always--but I promise you that it HAS.
You were TOLD EMPHATICALLY that between the fourth and eighth year of that period it would be chaos--and it has been, as we have structured a foundation upon which all else can be based as we move forward. On August 17, 1994 you will enter your eighth year of the "old" "new" counting of the calendar now being utilized by our team and "the ancients" both waiting and returned! I am indebted for the service and the JOY of our association--SO FAR. Ah, precious ones, I AM WHO I SAY I AM--AND YOU SHALL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED
OTHERS COME AND GO--SOME STAY
Many have come and gone, damaged and destroyed, served and HELPED beyond any call or expectation. I am honored--by both. Those who seem to have damaged--were the teachers--ARE the teachers which allow perfection in our own planning and within our own classroom. Discipline has often been hard and painful as ones had to swallow ego and accept responsibilities DIFFERENT from first perceptions--but as with a precision gear-mechanism, all burrs must be honed away and the meshing and sequence of integration of gear-cogs must be set into perfection of "timing". If ones cannot comprehend and must attend only their tiny little cells of ego selves--this is NOT THE PLACE TO BE.
I have to warn and remind you--when you say you believe me but not "everything"--this is fine. However, when you hurt one of my team-mates you PROVE that you do not believe me! In this statement, I can directly refer to the hurt that is now inflicted on Ronn Jackson.

I ask that Gaye read her observations and writing on "life". This is NOT what she calls her subject--but it is wonderful. I want it on this tape, in her projection and language and as well, please run it in the paper. If you people don't "wisen-up" and sort that which is fun, experience and worthy of your attention, and your humor--then this coming journey will get very, very tough on you.
When you get ready to reach out and touch someone--LIKE GOD-- He'll be waiting and so will we of HIS team!

THE STAR LADY
Editor's note: At a lively business meeting held on 8/6/94, Gaye Ekker, E.J.'s sister, was visiting and Commander Hatonn asked her to share a sample of her writing talent. She read the following in her homespun way onto the tape of that meeting, (which you can purchase through The Word, see end of journal for ordering information). We proudly present:
My sister called me up right here on this phone. She wuz excited. (We talk ever day on the long distance telephone. A few husbands back [of hers], one of them hollered that we didn't know there was any distance in our long calls; can get 'spensive, ya know.) Anyhow, she had tried ever thing--even married her marriage counselor. Now there was a real mistake.
Anyway, she called right up here on this phone and she said she'd found the help we needed, the answer to our prayers. Hope for tomorrow--all of them actually, right up to the end of our days, a blue print she called it--a 'strolager. Now that's too fancy a word fur me, so I dubbed her Star Lady. Well, that was clear back in '82. 'Twasn't long 'fore I fogged off to see her Star Lady, and she was right. Help was on the way! She told me the most wonderful things: how my children were going to be successful; that I should get into travel and write and go back to school. And then she said I would have a dee-vorce in two years. Well, that surely let the wind right outta my sails. Somebody tells me to do something, I always say, "Like Hell I will!"
Two years later I could'a got that dee-vorce. He was just itchin' to go. All set to have an affair with my best friend. I wonder if I'd a knowed that without the Star Lady. Anyway, I was too scared so I went to my best friend, and pointed out the signs. That's how affairs are, ya know--just sneak right up on ya-there's warnin' signs, always; it don't just happen like they say, but mostly fellars don't pay attention in time. (Fellars to me is people, boys or girls.) And so, because she was my friend, she didn't come around anymore and he couldn't think of how to get together with her; she quick got herself all mixed up with a Desert News writer. So he stayed in his room when he was home and/or sober nigh on to the whole winter--straight through Christmas, drunk as one of them fancy lords--only he wasn't fancy, just drunk. Little boys don't understand. I don't either.
While I thought I fooled the Star Lady, what I really did was fool me. About '85 my sister called right up here on this phone and she says, "I've found a new Star Lady and this 'ns a psychic". I didn't know what a psychic was so I tried to look it up in my fancy dic-shun-ary. The thing about lookin' up words, you damn nigh have to know how to spell um fore you can look um up. I came out with "physic" first and I hoped that wasn't right. I sure would like to be a lady like my sister & talk proper. You'd a gotta kick out a listen'n to me waltzing over the phone trying to get her to spell psychic so I could look it up.
Anyway this'n was one and purely wonderful. Said my sun and rising sign was the same; that means I was here before. Says I been here lots of times (when I say I've made so many mistakes this time I gotta come again, folks don't hardly think that's Christian). Says I was a mean, fe-row-cious son-of-a-bitch, probly one of them that hollered, "Off with their heads!" A man, no less. Says this life is to show me the "softer side of humanity". That's a crock a crap if I ever heard it. I'm as tough as Old Lady Hunt, and she was tough. Chewed tobacco; she could nail a grasshopper right in the eye further'n I can throw with my good arm. Anyway, this Star Lady said my Venus is in Sagittarius (that sounds nasty, don't it?) said I can handle three affairs at a time and I'd have three husbands. Well, I ain't never had no affairs and only one husband. Just look at what I've got to look forward to! She thought I oughta see this man pyschic--he's got his doc-toe-rate in pshy, pshy-well you know--he's one of them head people. So off I went. Oh, he had the nicest, softest voice. Said I was close to Jesus. Said much closer than most. Said he could see Jesus standin' behind me, said I was "bathed in his Aura". That sounded nasty to me, too, but then I felt a great weight lifted from my shoulders when he said, "Jesus I give her back to you".
Ya see, I've always been, well, blind in one eye and don't see good out of the other'n. When I was sixteen I decided to get married. 'Course having got religion when that Bible thumper came to town that winter and when my folks went ape s---(somehow ape crap don't have the same sound, does it?)--well anyway, plum crazy right out of their minds, cryin' and carryin' on, I went down to the spring and I prayed, "Oh, Lord, if I shouldn't be gittin' married give me a sign." No bells rang, no voice came outta the clouds, no trumpets sounded, no choir of angels, but as God is my witness, I knew I shouldn't be gitten' married. I did anyway. I gave up prayin'--if ya ain't gonna mind, no sense takin' up his time. And Mama died.
Well, when the Star Man called Jesus in that way you can't imagine my relief and I threw my arms around Jesus and I been prayin' ever since. Why I talk to him about every little thing. I say I'll pray over it and I do. I'm that same little girl that just talked all the time. I just know Jesus winks at my Daddy and they both recall how Daddy used to say, "Let's listen to quiet for a while".
Well, things got bad again. You know that very first Star. Lady told me your horry-scope is where all the stars wuz when you were born. It makes a road map of your life--shows you where all the twists and turns and pot holes is; and the purty places too, and then you get to choose. Now that you know where all the pot holes is you can go around, pull over or hit the suckers head on. I sure as hell had been hittin' ever one of them lately, and the wheels of my life were bent near clear off, so I panicked and went back to formal church. Took up goin' to meetin' three times a week and prayin', "Lord help me Pur-ser-vear." I shud a been prayin', "Thy will be done," and so shud you. Things went from bad to worse.
Flew right out to Calli-forn-ia on the aero plane to another Star Man and I can tell you Calli-forn-ia Star Fellars ain't cheap. Well, he said there was a Big Bang comin' and someone from my past would come ridin' in and we could make fire with no wood, whatever that means, and wherever he is I wish he'd show up. Anyway, the Big Bang came and went and when some Star Fellar tells you about a Big Bang, you just say, "Move them Stars over, I ain't havin' one".
Well now my moon's in Virgo and the Star Lady says I'm going to be real hard on myself for a couple of years, but there's always hope. Says I flunked recess and I think play is a four letter word and I better damn well pay attention; I can work myself to death, and I'm workin' on it.
I hate sur prizes so I've got my funeral planned. Garth Brooks is gonna sing Ghost Rider In the Sky and Michael Bolton, How Can We Be Lovers If We Can't Be Friends and my friend Bill Holm from Minniota, Minnesota plays the piano just like my Mama, will close with What A Friend I Have In Jesus in polka rhythm--Oh it will be splendid. And I'm not being buried in the ground for some graduate student to examine my bones and pill loss o pies over my demise. I ain't wild about fire, but I don't see no other way, and then I'm havin' them ashes FLUNG.
One of my proper friends said "Titter, titter," (that's how you laugh proper.) "Titter, titter, you mean scattered don't you, scatter your ashes?"
No! Damn it. I mean FLUNG! When I'm through here I've made such a mess this time, I won't be long. I'll be back in no time so I'm FLINGING outta here. I need a nap.

CHINA & GATT
In a recent article from THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, written by Marcus W. Brauchli, and sent to us by Ronn Jackson with the handwritten notation, "China's membership in GATT is mandatory for One World order."--[quoting:]
A senior U.S. official explicitly linked China's campaign to become a founding member of the World Trade Organization with the resolution of bilateral trade disputes with Washington.
By warning that the "issues are absolutely intertwined," Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky positioned Washington squarely between Beijing and the charter membership it openly covets in the new trade body, which is scheduled to succeed the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs next year. Although China is now among the world's fastest-growing trading nations, it isn't a member of GATT.
"China is 20% of the world and China surely must be in the great multinational institutions," Ms. Barshefsky said. "But China is not special. China must make adjustments if it wants entry into the GATT."
She also added that the U.S. wouldn't bend in its belief that China shouldn't be admitted to the world trade body as a developing trade nation. China is an "export powerhouse", she said, that doesn't require special treatment to develop its international trade.
Separately, China's finance minister Liu Zhongli, was quoted Sunday as saying that Beijing understood that it would have to make its currency, the yuan, convertible before it could have a say in international currency issues. Convertibility also could be an issue in WTO or GATT membership.
In an article from the July 22 edition of THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, written by Wendy Sloane, [quoting:]
Alexander Solzhenitsyn planned to return home to Moscow yesterday, culminating a seven-week odyssey across Russia, which he has said is deeply wracked by crime, poverty, and despair.
No brass bands are planned to welcome Russia's greatest-living writer and winner of the 1970 Nobel prize back to Moscow, but his journey in a luxury railroad car received unprecedented publicity here.
Mr. Solzhenitsyn has said he will not officially participate in politics and has yet to formally accept an invitation to address Russia's parliament. But in a new essay titled "The Russian Question at the End of the 20th Century, " he has recorded his political views, setting the stage for his new life in Moscow.
Soon to be published by the literary journal Novy Mir, the essay was completed before Solzhenitsyn left his Vermont exile. In both content and tone, it mirrors comments the writer has made on his journey across the Far East, Siberia, Ural Mountains, and Volga River region.
The lengthy historical essay is permeated by references to Russia's spiritual, moral, and cultural uniqueness. Not surprisingly, Solzhenitsyn warns that following other countries' models will only harm his homeland.
At the same time, however, Solzhenitsyn expresses outrage at the fate of the 25 million ethnic Russians living in former Soviet republics, and repeats earlier calls for Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and northwestern Kazakhstan to form a single state. But he stresses that Russia should focus on internal problems, citing the waste of Russian resources and manpower while leaders focused too much on the West.
Solzhenitsyn lashes out at Mikhail Gorbachev by calling the former Soviet leader's perestroika reforms "hypocritical and chaotic". He also criticizes Russia's new self-proclaimed role as global arbiter. "We should not vie for international leadership. All our efforts should be directed inward, focused on industrious internal development."
"The crisis in our country now is many times deeper than just an economic crisis," he [Solzhenitsyn] writes. "It's a crisis of consciousness and morality."
YOUR PAPERS PLEASE
In an article from the August 4 edition of Southern California's DAILY NEWS, [quoting:]
A federal advisory commission proposed Wednesday that the government establish a computerized registry of the names and Social Security numbers of all citizens and aliens authorized to work in the United States, so that employers could check the immigration status of job applicants.
In a unanimous recommendation, the Commission on Immigration Reform, a nine-member advisory panel headed by Barbara Jordan [A-15], the former Democratic congresswoman from Texas, said the measures were needed to curb the hiring of illegal aliens.
The proposed registry would include data from the immigration service and from the Social Security Administration. Employers would have to check the registry before hiring people. The commission said it would not require people to carry identification cards.
Jordan, who was appointed by President Clinton, said the president should take immediate action to form a national registry and test it in the five states with the highest levels of immigration: California, New York, Texas, Florida and Illinois.
In an article from Ronn Jackson, including the notation of, "The decisions of EU are going to expedite One World Order," and taken from a recent edition of THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, written by Alexander MacLeod--[quoting:]
Fifteen years after its members first began to be directly elected, the European Parliament is showing it has teeth.
At its first session after June's elections, the European Union's 521-member legislature came within 22 votes of rejecting the 12 European Union governments' unanimous nomination for the key post of President of the European Commission.
Jacques Santer [A-7], prime minister of Luxembourg, squeaked through in voting to become the EU's top civil servant and successor to France's Jacques Delors--but only after a savage verbal attack on his candidacy by the Parliament's socialist group, backed by liberals, a scattering of Greens, and rebel conservatives.
But Mr. Santer, who was strongly supported by Germany and France, has not heard the last of a Parliament whose powers have been considerably increased by the 1992 Maastricht Treaty on European integration.
For many years the Council has decided EU policy, the Commission has executed it, and the Parliament has given its approval.
The Maastricht Treaty, however, gave the Parliament powers to vote on nominations for members of the European Commission, and to approve treaties negotiated by the EU.
The June elections produced a majority of new members, eager to use the powers that Maastricht has given them--and to press for more.

Former Education Secretary and Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander, a likely candidate for the 1996 GOP presidential nomination, said Wednesday that reorganizing Congress is the best way to improve American government.
"Cut their pay and send them home," Alexander said in an address to the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank here.
Alexander said de-emphasizing the federal government and giving power back to states and local communities are the first steps in reviving the nation.
"We need to create a new promise of American life that gets the government in Washington out of the way," he said.
His proposal would put members of Congress in the capital for only half the year, cut their pay by 50 percent and let them hold regular jobs during the off season in their hometowns.
Under his plan, Congress would convene in January and pass the legislation needed to keep the government running. Lawmakers would return to their homes some time after baseball season begins in the spring.
Alexander said a strong federal government is now outdated.
"The government in Washington is obsolete," he said.
In an article from the August 2 edition of the LOVELAND [Colo.] REPORTER HERALD, written by Philip Tardani, [quoting:]
State Sen. Jim Roberts may raise some eyebrows when he talks about mysterious black helicopters in flight, but others have reported seeing them, too.
The Loveland Republican, who is involved in a heated primary race, recently exhorted the REPORTER-HERALD to delve into the story of the unmarked helicopters. Roberts said he and others have seen them in the area. He questions what they're up to.
Apparently, he's not alone, an air traffic controller [Dyer] says.
Two of the sightings were just before Japanese Emperor Akihito's visit, Dyer said, and the other would have been during his stay. One woman said the helicopters looked like the type that are used to ferry the president.
Dyer speculated that the aircraft belong to the Secret Service and were there to protect the emperor.
But others believe there could be a more ominous reason for the flights--people control.
Jerry Hughes, whose radio talk show Washington on Trial is syndicated nationally, said that until recently, government officials have denied the choppers even exist.

Forensic scientists examining the exhumed body of a germ-warfare researcher who died more than 40 years ago after unknowingly taking a drink spiked by the CIA in an LSD experiment say they have found skull fractures that could point to homicide rather than the official verdict of suicide. Frank R. Olson, a civilian researcher for the U.S. Army and the CIA, died in a fall from a New York hotel window in 1953.
TOUGH NEW LAW
In an article from the August 3 edition of Southern California's DAILY NEWS, [quoting:]
One of the quickest ways to get unlicensed (and unsafe) drivers off the road is to take away their cars. That's the convincing argument behind the Safe Streets Act of 1994, introduced by Assemblyman Richard Katz, D-Panorama City.
Katz's legislation would require drivers with suspended or revoked licenses to surrender their vehicles to the state if they are found driving on California's roads.
Civil liberties would be guarded [right]. The bill makes sure that peace officers would not be allowed to stop drivers for the sole purpose of determining whether they are licensed. The officers, for their part, would be given discretion in special cases, such as whether to impound an employer-owned vehicle driven by an unlicensed driver on the job.
The Assembly passed Katz's bill in June. But as the measure heads toward an Aug. 9 hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, it seems that some legislators might be more overly worried about inconveniencing a few car owners. There is opposition on the committee from some members who fear that the law would unfairly penalize vehicle owners who loan their cars.

Close to a quarter of all Americans 65 or older were given prescriptions for drugs that they should almost never take, a study has found.
Some of the drugs can produce amnesia and confusion, while others can cause serious side effects such as heart problems or respiratory failure. And, the investigators said, there is no need to prescribe these drugs to older people, either because safer alternatives are available or because the drugs simply are not needed.
The study, by Dr. Steffi Woolhandler of Harvard Medical School, examined data from a national survey that included more than 6,000 older people not in nursing homes.
CHINA & HUMAN RIGHTS
In an article from the July 29 edition of THE JOHNSON CITY PRESS, [quoting:]
Two New York-based groups say they have detected a new and disturbing pattern of arrests in China since international human rights pressure on Beijing eased earlier this year.
Human Rights Watch-Asia and Human Rights in China said Chinese authorities have been tougher on dissents since May, when President Clinton cut the link between China's human rights practices and its U.S. trading privileges, or most favored-nation status.
"In the absence of international pressure, China has steadily tightened the noose on all forms of dissident activity," the two groups said in a report prepared for publication Friday.
BURMA SLAVE LABOR
In an article from the July 21 edition of THE MODESTO BEE, HALOEKHANI CAMP, THAI-BURMA BORDER--[quoting:]
Burma's ruling military has marshaled tens of thousands of slave laborers to build a railroad needed for a natural gas pipeline financed partly by an American company, according to human rights groups.
Villagers who have fled the railway project described 10 1/2 hour workdays, daily beatings by soldiers, frequent accidents and payments to the military to get rest days. Hunger and disease are rampant. The unpaid workers even have to pool their money to rent construction equipment from the military.
Located along a remote coastal strip of southern Burma, the railroad will cross a pipeline that is to carry natural gas from an off-shore field to energy-hungry Thailand by 1998.

The world's oceans have been fished nearly to the limits, after decades of fishermen using bigger boats and more advanced technologies, according to a report released Saturday.
"Although worldwide environmental degradation of the oceans contributes to the decline of marine life, overfishing is the primary cause of dwindling fish populations," said the report by the non-profit Worldwatch Institute. "The oceans are not the unlimited reservoir of low-cost food they were once considered."
A 5 percent decline in the world-wide catch since 1989 is largely because of more people fishing in large-scale, industrial operations, often in waters that are becoming more polluted, the report said.
Meanwhile, the world population is growing at 1.6 percent annually, equivalent to the population of Mexico being added to the world each year.
After decades of rapid growth, all of the planet's major fishing grounds are at or beyond their limits, and already many have suffered serious declines, the report said.

The key to wiping out diseases with vaccines is for states to keep computer records on each immunization shot a child gets, a top federal health official said Tuesday.
Although the idea may sound unwieldy, Dr. David Satcher, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, noted that such a data bank is already up and running.
Keeping track of who has had which shot would aid the federal goal of wiping out measles--and other contagious childhood conditions--by 2000.
The registries are part of President Clinton's controversial Childhood Immunization Initiative, which would expand the pool of U.S. children "eligible" for free government vaccines. [Watchit.]

"Flesh-eating" bacteria are among serious streptococcus infections that are expected to become more frequent and must be closely monitored, government health officials told lawmakers Thursday.
"There is a clear and ever-present danger of serious Group A streptococcal infection in every geographical area of the world," Dr. Dennis Stevens, chief of the Infectious Disease Section at Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, said at a House subcommittee hearing. "If history repeats itself, as it is wont to do, we can expect increased frequency and severity of a wide variety of streptococcal infections."

The castle associated with the legendary vampire Dracula is in danger of collapse if it isn't repaired soon, its architectural director said Wednesday.
The rock on which the 14th century fortress stands has been deeply eroded...
Perched deep in the Carpathian Mountains in the heart of rural Romania, the fortress, known as Dracula's Castle, attracts as many as 4,000 visitors a day from around the world. Also known as Bran Castle, it was built in 1370.
Vlad the Impaler, the 15th century prince of Walachia who was infamous for impaling his enemies on spikes, often stayed at the castle. He also is thought to have been imprisoned there for a short period.
Vlad the Impaler is thought to be the inspiration for English writer Bram Stoker's 19th century Dracula, a novel that has been the basis for many vampire films.

More than 100,000 violations of drinking water standards occur every year, but few cases ever lead to penalties by federal or state regulators, an environmental group asserted Wednesday.

The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has been forced to close its offices in Long Island, New York; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and two other major cities. The St. Paul, Minnesota PIONEER PRESS last week reported the closings, which were attributed to "severe financial crisis." In addition, the ADL has pulled out of a partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Center in St. Paul, and, as of this summer, will no longer supply one third of the funds.

KISSINGER AND BRITISH PLAN INDIA'S DISMEMBERMENT
From a special to the New Federalist, June 6, 1994--[quoting]: On June 2, at an international conference on Kashmir held in the Danish Parliament, LaRouche associate Muriel Mirak Weissbach demonstrated graphically, using the India-Pakistan Kashmir case, how British geopolitics destroys national sovereignty and kills nations.
At the conference, British MP [Member of Parliament] Max Madden called for the dismemberment of India, and for UN administration of Kashmir and the entire region.
Mirak-Weissbach, representing EIR magazine, said:
"There is an effort to manipulate Pakistan and India into a war over Kashmir which...would lead to the destruction of all, to the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of human beings.
"The only forces to benefit from such carnage are those who pursue the policy of depopulating large parts of the globe, in particular in the so-called Third World.
WHOLESALE ELIMINATION OF POPULATIONS
"The blueprint for wholesale elimination of populations in the Southern Hemisphere is a 1974 memorandum of The United States National Security Council, then under the direction of Henry Kissinger... That document, NSSM 200, was the Malthusian blueprint which has shaped British and U.S. policy since, and has served as the prelude to the blatantly genocidal schemes published in the 1990s for North-South confrontation. It stands as the conceptual basis for the programs being circulated currently in preparation for the United Nations International Conference on Population to be held in Cairo in September.
"Kissinger's 1974 document identified population growth in the Third World as the foremost national security threat to the United States. Kissinger developed the thesis that demographic growth in the resource-rich Third World would lead countries to seek economic development and political independence, which in turn would prevent the West from continuing to loot raw materials. Thus, concluded Kissinger, it would be in American national security interests to reduce population growth among the non-white populations of the world."
Among; the 13 nations targeted in the document, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan topped the list.
RELIGIONS KILL OFF RELIGIONS
"The vision that these Malthusian geostrategists have for the wars of the future," she warned, "is what Samuel Huntington called the 'Clash of Civilizations', whereby the peoples of the 'zones for turmoil' will engage in wars among themselves, couched in religious terms: Islam, Hinduism, Confucianism, Orthodox Christianity and Western Christianity, are to kill each other off in unending strife. The aim is to reduce the world's population to 2 billion, as the organizers of the UN Cairo conference have suggested...
"It is in this context that the Kashmir crisis must be located. From the standpoint of these writers, if war could be sparked between India and Pakistan, escalating to the use of nuclear weapons, millions of people could be eliminated, thus effectively reducing the world's population."

THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, THE WORLD BANK CONTROL AFRICA
From the Oregonian, June 27, 1994, written by John Darnton--[quoting]: ACCRA, Ghana--For more than a decade the economies of Africa have been caught in a relentless downward spiral. As a result, countries that are proud of their independence and prickly about sovereignty are finding themselves more than ever under the thumb of outside powers.
Only now the powers are not the old colonial masters--Britain, France and the other would-be exploiters who carved up Africa in European drawing rooms and conference halls in the 1880s.
Nor are they the United States and the Soviet Union, which cast covetous eyes upon the continent in the mid-1970s and turned it into an arena for Cold War confrontation by proxy.
IMF & WB TAKE OVER
Now the external superpowers are the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. These institutions, founded half a century ago at the Bretton Woods Conference to serve the needs of the industrialized world, have become the overlords of Africa in the 1990s.
Gone are the days 10 and 15 years ago when socialism was "on the march" and powerful leaders from the despotic to the high-minded gave it lip service. They embraced it because a controlled economy fit well with one-man rule that brooked no opposition, because egalitarianism seemed progressive and right for Africa and because only the Communist countries were backing liberation movements in the south.
OFFERS HARD TO REFUSE
The IMF and the World Bank are the purveyors of the new orthodoxy. They come in to bail out a country that is bankrupt. They do so by drawing up a "structural adjustment program", a tight package of economic prescriptions designed to bring about free market enterprise and minimize governmental interference.
Because the package is tied to millions of dollars in aid from Western donor countries, it is an offer that can't be refused. And so the IMF and the bank end up calling the shots on a broad range of issues--even political matters such as calling multiparty elections--that affect the lives of millions.
Through its structural adjustment programs, the IMF and the bank now effectively oversee and supervise the economies of some 30 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
DEPTH OF CRISIS
It is hard to exaggerate the depth of Africa's economic crisis.
Consider this fact: Excluding South Africa, the 1991 gross national product of all countries south of the Sahara--a swath of the globe that is home to almost 600 million people--was about the same as the gross national product of Belgium, with a population of 10 million.
Eighteen of the world's 20 poorest countries are African, and 30 of the poorest 40. Caught in a downward cycle that began with the oil price explosion of the 1970s and then accelerated with the plunge of the commodities markets, they are getting poorer still. Per capita GNP declined by 2 percent a year throughout the 1980s.
Their debt, tripled since 1980, now amounts to over $180 billion. The debt burden--caused by borrowing to keep budgets afloat and to pay for imports--is so gigantic (amounting to 110 percent of GNP in 1991) that virtually no one thinks the sum can ever be repaid. Just servicing it costs the countries $10 billion every year--four times more than they all spend on health and education.
Africa's share of world trade has fallen below 4 percent and is now closer to 2 percent. That is so marginal it is almost as if the continent has curled up and disappeared from the map of international shipping lanes and airline routes that rope together Europe, North America and the booming Far East. Direct foreign investment in Africa is so paltry it is not even measured in the latest World Bank study. [end of quoting]
MEXICO RETALIATES FOR NAFTA INVASION
From the Bakersfield Californian, Thursday August 4, 1994, by Nancy Nusser--[quoting:] MEXICO CITY--When a Texas dairy tried to increase milk and ice cream exports to Mexico under a free trade accord with the United States, its delivery trucks were set on fire.
Fred Haddad, sales manager for Price's Creameries in El Paso, said unidentified men last week broke into the warehouse of the dairy's Mexican distributor in the border city of Juarez. The men set fire to four cargo trucks loaded with Price's Creameries products, he said.
"The trucks pretty much burned to the ground." Haddad said. "The ice cream melted."
Haddad is among many Americans experiencing trouble as they make a run on Mexican markets under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Under the accord, Americans are supposed to be able to freely export to Mexico, and vice-versa. Since NAFTA went into effect in January, trade between Mexico and the United States has reached record levels. But as Mexicans struggle with the pressure of U.S. competition, the most hard-hit are putting up their own, often illegal barriers. Examples:
*Haddad said that six months before the trucks were torched, an armed mob broke into a warehouse in northern Chihuahua state and dumped 5,500 gallons of Price's Creameries milk. Then they opened fire on the refrigerator, he said.
*Amado Martinez, a Mexican distributor of U.S. milk in Juarez, says he received three to four phone threats daily and finally sent his wife to the United states for safety.
*When American entrepreneur Bradley Tirpack set up a Mexico City phone company called Access Telecom that lured customers from Telmex, the giant Mexican telephone company, Telmex cut off his phone lines and all but put him out of business.
*The U.S. Corn Refiners Association said Mexican sugar growers tried to pressure Mexican soft-drink bottlers into boycotting high fructose corn syrup, produced mainly in the United States. [end of quoting]
FLORIDA HARASSES PRESBYTERIANS:
From The Orlando Sentinel, July 24, 1994, by Cal Thomas--[quoting]: When the issue of separation between church and state is raised, it is usually in the context of controlling the extent to which the church is permitted to influence the state and the laws by which we live.
In Pompano Beach, a lawyer is poised to seize the building, Sunday-morning offerings and other assets of a church in a case that should alarm constitutional scholars and others concerned about the excessive reach of government and its increasing hostility to religious people who believe that their faith compels them to apply that faith in the public arena.
The facts are these. New Covenant Church, a conservative Presbyterian body, sold some of its land a decade ago to a doctor, who subsequently opened an abortion clinic. Members of the church, who believe abortion is immoral and against God's will, began picketing the clinic. The ruling body of the church (known as a session) made it clear that the decision to picket was not officially sanctioned by the church and that the demonstrators were acting on their own.
Even those who favor "a woman's right to choose" an abortion should be seriously concerned about a case that allows the state to confiscate the property of a church because a few members and the pastor--acting as an individual citizen and not representing his church--decide to exercise what they regard as their moral obligation and their constitutional right to assemble peaceably and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
If a church-state separation means anything, it ought to cut the other way when the state invades the church and declares there is no king but Caesar. [end of quoting]
RAY RENICK'S CURRENT STATUS by Rick Martin 8/3/94
It has been some time since we last wrote about Ray Renick and the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Connections. Ray Renick, as some readers will recall, is a very outspoken individual who was arrested on May 20, 1993 and charged with (1) attempted murder; (2) incendiary devices; (3) armor-piercing ammunition. Bail was set at $500,000 [see the 8/24/93 CONTACT for a complete summary of Ray's predicament; what the crooks have done to Ray tells more than anything else about the validity of his claims about the evil in San Luis Obispo, CA! ]. 'Shortly after his arrest, prior to his jury trial actually beginning, Ray was found to be "mentally incompetent" to stand trial--this after a jury and several psychiatrists found him competent to stand trial. Ray was transferred to Patton State Mental Hospital in Southern California for observation and treatment. After many months of chemical attitude adjusting, Ray has been found, now, to be mentally competent to stand trial. The problem then became, who will represent Ray? The public defender, working solidly against Ray, his client, obviously would not be the one to present any kind of defense. After months of intensive work by the Constitutional Law Center on Ray's behalf, a possible attorney began to stand out.
On Monday, August 1, Mitch Jaffe of the Constitutional Law Center and I traveled to San Luis Obispo to meet with Renick. It had been almost a year since I last saw Ray, and I must say that when I first saw him I was stunned. Ray appeared to be depressed, chemically altered, and held a vacant stare. While the chemical alteration was later explained away by Ray's new attorney as being false, the Renick who sat before me was a changed man from the highly spirited individual I had come to know the year before. After a meeting with the potential attorney, agreements were made and Ray was ready to proceed.
On Tuesday, August 2, prior to Ray's hearing, Mitch Jaffe and I spoke with Robert Mulvany, a Private Investigator with firsthand experience with the Renick case from the "inside". Mulvany explained that, "This thing was way over-charged to begin with." And, "I don't think the DA's office will press so hard now--he's been down for a long time." The [Law and Motions] hearing and arraignment followed, with Greg Jacobson in place as Ray's attorney. Jacobson stood before the court and petitioned for time to prepare his case. Pretrial was then scheduled for November 4, with the trial beginning on November 8 [Division E].
In an underhanded maneuver, the prosecuting district attorney, Pomeroy, asked the court to reinstate Renick in a mental hospital, specifically Atascadero State Hospital, until the trial. Jacobson, who had not seen any of the Renick legal documents, spoke eloquently before the court and succeeded in having Ray maintained at the San Luis Obispo County Jail until the trial. Ray was pleased with all outcomes of the morning's hearing.
Up until now Ray has been placed in the position whereby he "made a scene" at prior courtroom appearances in an effort to focus the attention of the trial on the corruption addressed by the material he had written. Now is the first time that Ray has had competent counsel who will work on his behalf to secure the proper investigative work, expert witnesses, and legal documentation. One thing is sure--at least now Ray will have an even chance at a fair [jury] trial. And, of course, we at CONTACT will not predict the outcome. That is, after all, a job for the jury.
A CITIZEN TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
HELP THE HOPI NATION!
SAD COMMENTARY ON HUMAN RIGHTS
Larry D. Calhoun
1544 W. Woodland Hills Drive
Dayton, TX 77535
To All ELECTED Officials:
From the time that America was "discovered", the people who were already living here have suffered greatly due to the spread of our (so-called) civilization.
The Hopi Nation is now in the process of being destroyed by both big business and a Government that, by each passing day, places increasing pressure on the throats of the people that the Government is supposed to serve.
Time after time OUR Government is depriving citizens of their natural Human Rights. We have seen the injustice and disregard of our country's callous and ELECTED representatives. We have witnessed the atrocity of the Branch Davidian Faith near Waco. We also are aware of the massacre at Ruby Creek when a man named Weaver saw his family killed in a gutless attack by the Federal Government. We also have the history of Wounded Knee, not to be outdone by what happened at Little Big Horn. We also have a monument created at Mount Rushmore which, as sad as it is to say, is proudly viewed by American citizens daily. Many and probably most Americans don't realize that this monument to civilization was created on a land that is considered sacred to many Native Americans. This has been yet another indignity that we have inflicted on a proud nation of once sovereign people.
Our Government points to the Government of China, the Governments of Africa, Governments in the Middle East and Governments in Europe as instances of Human Rights violations. We have, as a nation, stood before other nations and have condemned the actions of Foreign Governments that trample on those Human Rights.
How can this country do such a thing? Isn't it about time that we correct and bring to an end the Human Rights violations of our own country before we point to other Nations in this world of ours as being the transgressors?
The Hopi Nation consists roughly in the number of ten thousand. These are people of a proud heritage that desire to live a simple and yet spiritual lifestyle. For the most part they are not a materialistic people. They have little need for electricity as well as other conveniences of a modern society. One basic need of these people to survive is WATER. This is a resource that is rapidly being used up by big business. A mining company with very apparent disregard for a nation of people is in the process of emptying an aquifer that is essential for the Hopi people to survive. The Peabody Mining Company with support of the Federal Government is in effect bringing an end to a race of people. Without their water supply the continuation of an indigenous people of this country will be ending. This is a continuation of the program of genocide by the Federal Government for the last two hundred years.
The Hopi Nation, a people close to the heart of God, have had the foresight of prophecy for countless generations. The prophecies of these people, just like the prophecies of Nostradamus, have warned mankind many times of events that have eventually come to pass. Long before the events took place, the Hopi prophecies spoke about the horrors of two World Wars, Nuclear Technology, Television as well as the founding of the United Nations.
Another prophecy foretold by the Hopi Nation is that upon the demise of their line the destruction of our civilization as a whole would be imminent.
In light of what past prophecy has brought to our attention, how can this be overlooked and tossed casually aside? As an issue to itself, these people should be allowed to continue the way they have for centuries. The other issue is that in preserving the life and heritage of these noble people we would be preserving the continuation of our Human species as a whole.
We should be doing all we can to undo all actions that threaten the balance and harmony of our planet.
For each voice that you hear that brings this to your attention, there are hundreds of thousands and probably millions of people who want to do something but they simply do not know what to do. So, listen closely and pay attention to the voices that you do hear! Since you are an ELECTED office holder or APPOINTED by an ELECTED official and you are capable of taking positive action--DO SO! Investigate what is going on concerning the home of the Hopi Nation. Get an UNBIASED party to find out what is going on.
This is the TRUE VOICE of the American Citizen. We take notice of what is happening in this land of ours. There are many issues these days to become aware of and these issues must be addressed. Please help to restore dignity to the land that we all hold dear.
May God grant you the wisdom and courage to do what is necessary. Show the people that you do care. Make a POSITIVE difference.
