FOR THE MINUTES OF The County of Humboldt Board of Director’s Meeting

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 @ 9:00 A.M.tumblr_mxrc0kLs1B1smbf1ao1_500

Rex Bohn is not present –he had a prior commitment.  Estelle Fennell is missing due to four landslides on 101 between the Garberville-Redway area and Eureka.  Virginia mentioned the 4/5 vote needed on some of the consent items, and opened Public Hearings.  There were the usual number of healthcare workers, then Ken, then me (Honsal is front row left of me):

“’Correctness takes jurisdiction over fiction

Prove the lie. Prove the fact.  When you put them both together – choose.  Choice.  It is the machine of government.  In the movie The Matrix, what is the virus that destroys both the machine and the people?  The virus is the illusion of communications.  And syntax destroys it.  Neo represents 3 + 3=6.  And Smith had infinity of Smiths. What’s the first thing that the virus of wrong tries to do?  Re-write correctness.  And every time he does it – 3 + 3 doesn’t equal 7 – that’s out, 8 – that’s out, 9 – that’s out.  And inadvertently you watch the destruction, because the virus uses up all its energy trying to prove a lie, which you can’t do.  In the end the contract was; I can live as a human being because I’m correct and the machine can operate because it’s correct.  Because we need the machine, and the people have to service the machine, and the machine has to service the people.

The adverb is used more in language worldwide than any other syntax of communication.  The adverb modifies a noun.  The adverb operation of syntax is a ‘no contract’ issue because you’re modifying the condition of a fact.  If you’re going to modify something, that’s perjury, because its no longer the original fact.  And so the adverb creates the prejudice of your limited education or limited knowledge to go ahead and sell your opinion, or prejudice, to another individual by modifying the condition of the fact that’s in front of you.  When you take a fact and you modify it with an adverb, it becomes what’s called a gerund verb, which means a noun used as a verb. It can be explained –but its still a lie.

It’s a math problem.  The math problem is: 3 x 3 x 3 =27.  So, if we have a fact, times a fact, times a fact, we’re going to get a fact.  If we do:   3 x 3 x 0 = 0.  Or if we divide, it’s still going to be zero, because a fact times a fact, times a lie, equals a lie.’”

“[For] the Commercial adverb, modifying Medical as a coloring adjective, making Marijuana a gerund verb, substituting as a prostitute pronoun for the Land fact -that cannot precede a verb Ordinance -posing as a noun for tax on private property.

For the Land is the only fact in the equation, and is private jurisdiction, where Order Followers, masquerading as Public Servants, cannot lay claim for tax, or trespassing Storm Troopers.

The County does not have title to the fact. The hierarchy > control > enslavement, via hive mentality > collectivism > groupthink, churns out mathematical engineered syntax -creating fraud. No one has to join in the madness.”

PUBLIC THEATER – Estelle arrived at some point so the four could have their way with the adverb, verb, adverb, verb, adverb, verb Consent Calendar.  Everybody’s talking to nobody.  Virginia Bass exited during the meeting -as she swiveled around in one of the new, leather, high-back chairs, so Ryan Sundberg (Vice Chair) could position as Chair during her brief absence.  The new name plates are about 18” x 7”.

Last up was a recommendation by the unelected CAO, Amy Nilsen, to appoint Billy Honsal as INTERIM Sheriff beginning May 6 to a November 2018 ballot date. Extra poor.   The last time a top position Officer in Eureka was unlawfully appointed as a so-called INTERIM Chief of Police (translation: the chain of command is broken), the County Supervisors ordered the 3:00 A.M. raid on sleeping Occupiers.   The Cities of Oakland and Los Angeles also had INTERIM Police Chiefs, and the sleeping Occupiers in those two cities were also terrorized, beaten, hospitalized or caged with no charges filed –at the same time, on the same night.  Coincidence?

I was the only one of the public who spoke :  “You got an F on your report card last week, and this week you believe you have the delegated authority to appoint someone to the highest elected position in Humboldt.  Billy Honsal wouldn’t recognize law if he found it in his sock drawer.  Nothing personal, Billy, I don’t know you.  You’re living in that fuzzy adverb, verb world of fiction.  You do not have title/claim to the fact, the noun – the Sheriff.”

Then Downey had this to say – “I talked with Billy last night on the phone.  He was worried that today wouldn’t turn out for him.  I told him not to worry about it.”  When emotion interferes with facts, the truth gets lost in the shuffle.  And so, as Maggie Fleming, the District A. was approaching the microphone, I got up and left the meeting.

Don’t you find it odd that The County is offering more enslavement with a Measure W Tax vote being set up, but a ballot vote for the highest elected Humboldt County official is not?

Taxes are already well above 59%.  I hardly think that the founders planned on future generations of wimps handing over half of their labor energy to commercial Public corporations.

History shows that all attempts to oppress free humanity are doomed to failure.  However, we can no longer remain passive; the period of cold, creepy tyranny that legislates its way into power is over.  When oppression reaches this “hot” stage, we need activists.  The next period will be defined by how well we are able to overcome our conditioning and resist what we know in our hearts is the wrong course.  If we don’t bring back our cultural grounding, the monstrosity is here to stay.  We won’t be able to fight it. You can become active through research, spreading the word, but, most important, practice what you preach.  Tyranny is no match for freedom.

“The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.” ~Antisthenes

Raised, as most of us are, within nation states, it is extremely difficult to think outside the statist box. It’s tantamount to cognitive dissonance; Might as well ask a fish to breathe outside water, it’s so counterintuitive. But, and here’s the rub, we are not fish, and if we want to continue to be a progressively evolving species on this planet, we are going to have to think outside the box.

The thing is, it’s perfectly okay if “the box” is healthy, sustainable, and moral. But when it’s unhealthy, unsustainable, and immoral, like the statist box is, then it becomes imperative that we think outside of it. If we cannot do this, then we cowardly give in to indifference and ignorance, and we will be ruled by those who know how to gain power over indifference and ignorance. As Plato pointed out, “The price of apathy toward public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

In order to recondition our statist conditioning, we’re going to have to imagine a world without masters and rulers. No mastery except for self-mastery; no rulers except for self-rule. This seems counterintuitive to our statist conditioning, but it’s not. We simply need to be a little more imaginative about the ways in which we approach the ideas of leadership and rules. Leadership does not imply the need for masters, and rules do not imply the need for a ruler. We simply need a fresh perspective, preferably one that can see past statist driven propaganda. As Plotinus said, “We must close our eyes and invoke a new manner of seeing… a wakefulness that is the birthright of us all, though few put it to use.”

No Masters Does NOT Mean No Leaders

“In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs, it is the rule.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

A good leader does not seek mastery over others but mastery over the self. It is through self-mastery that a leader leads by example. No masters means no seeking mastery over others (tyranny), and no bequeathing mastery over oneself to others (slavery). It does not mean no leadership. Rather, no masters implies leadership through self-mastery, without the master-slave dynamic muddying up the waters of liberty.

The problem with growing up thinking inside the statist box is that we are brain washed into thinking that the mastery of the state, with its hierarchical power constructs and vertical oligarchy, is leadership. We are conditioned to think that our obedience to the system (house slavery) is the price we pay to not be kicked out of the nation (house).

No masters means freedom. Not the pseudo-freedom espoused by the state, but real freedom. It means no slavery, whether soft or hard. It means the individual is free to discover his/her own self-mastery through the leadership of others and not through obsequious to others or the system. As Epictetus said, “No man is free, who is not master of himself.”

A good leader knows when to follow (obey) as well as when not to follow (disobey). A true leader will not blindly kowtow to the state, but wisely question it, knowing that the state is mostly made up of individuals who tend to seek mastery over others rather than self-mastery. It’s because of this tendency that most states dissolve into authoritarian regimes that rule by force (fear and violence) rather than leadership (honor and prestige). Lest we give into the inherent insanity of the state, we must remain self-empowered individuals seeking self-mastery through sound leadership rather than self-inured individuals blindly following the mastery of the system that keeps the state entrenched.

No Rulers Does NOT Mean No Rules

“Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.” ~Plato

As it stands, we are a nation within which the majority of us do not engage in politics. Is it any wonder we are governed by orange-faced bigots and dumb and dumber bipartisanship? Ad hominem aside, the powers that be only have power when we the people agree that they have power.

The problem is that the majority of the people are not proactively engaged in politics and tend to be ignorant to the ways in which power works. This bodes well for those in power, for the entrenched masters and rulers, but not so well for those seeking self-mastery, self-rule, and freedom and justice for all. As Lord Byron once said, “Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.” Lest we allow ourselves to become bigots, fools, and slaves, we must be proactively engaged with our own freedom and aware of how the powers that be are working to keep us that way. “No masters, no rulers” is an extremely poignant phrase that keeps us circumspect and vigilant regarding our own freedom and liberty.

But even this phrase rarely gets through to the masses, because the masses are thinking and reasoning within a preconditioned statist box. So the typical statist’s knee jerk reaction to “no rulers” is…”But, but, we need rulers.” Well, of course we need rules, but who says we need rulers? And the statist says “But, who will enforce the rules?” Easy! We will. We the people, we the free, we the self-governed, we the self-empowered. We who choose to self-rule and who seek self-mastery without a tyrannical state blocking our freedom using outdated, fallible, man-made laws that don’t agree with cosmic law, common sense, logic and reasoning, and the non-aggression principal.

There will always be rules. Our basic survival depends upon following certain cosmic rules. The problem is most rules delivered by the state usually violate cosmic law. And so the typical naïve statist, unaware of how cosmic laws work, unaware of how power works, blindly follow the rules of the state without realizing that they are violating laws way more important than petty state laws. This is because of fear-conditioning. Statists are conditioned through fear to follow state driven laws, and this fear acts like eye-guards to laws that really matter. But the fear is very real. The question is, what are we going to do about it? As Derrick Jensen said, “Those in power rule by force, and the sooner we break ourselves of illusions to the contrary, the sooner we can at least begin to make reasonable decisions about whether, when, and how we are going to resist.”

At the end of the day, we all have a statist box that we must begin thinking outside of if we wish to progressively evolve as a species. “No masters, no rulers” is a useful phrase that we can use as a tool to leverage imagination and think outside the statist box. Statist conditioning be damned! Statist propaganda be damned! Statist brainwashing be damned! The way forward is to become individuals who are responsible with their own power; self-rule, self-mastery, self-empowerment, self-governance. Let the Goliath state rant and rave all it wants with its petty laws and outdated reasoning. We are David!

We alone are responsible for our own actions, because we are free, and we realize that anyone who says otherwise is a conditioned statist who isn’t ready to be free. They do not see the corruption and tyranny closing in upon them. They do not see the so-called masters and rulers threatening our self-mastery and self-rule with violence and fear. They do not see how their conditioning has crippled them into robots and pawns going through the motions of a diabolical soft slavery. They don’t even know that they don’t know. Meanwhile, the statist box they so desperately need to think outside of, lies hidden in the shadows of propaganda just waiting for them to gain the courage it takes to see past the smoke and mirrors. Like Brandon Stanton said, “The way to learn courage is to be afraid of something, and then do it anyway.” The scary part is, they don’t even know to be afraid.

Woman Combines Coconut Oil And Hemp Oil (You won’t believe what happened to her body)

Anna Li – year ago knowledge.  Stay Healthy
March 23, 2017

A lady was diagnosed with advanced terminal lung cancer and even though doctors said it is incurable, her daughter took efforts to obtain hemp oil for healing after her mother received the oncologist death sentence of six months left to live with her cancer. She preserved with amazing results and after curing her stage 4 lung cancer within 3 months she courageously posted an upbeat, outspoken YouTube testimonial.

She is from Australia and her family appears to be very comfortably middle class. However, hemp is illegal there. It happened at the beginning of 2014 when she was diagnosed with a small cell of lung carcinoma after couple of attempts to get a biopsy done to determine the extent of masses discovered by scans earlier. Her oncologist did not approve radiation stating that it was not possible and undergoing chemo will only prolong her life for a couple of months with a considerably less than an optimum quality of life. After that, she and her husband searched the Internet and found hemp groups, mostly in America, getting what information she could as well as how to make and use the oil.


They realized that the oil has to be high in THC in order to cure cancer and the standard is working up to a gram a day. The psychotropic aspects of THC overwhelmed her before she could get even close to that standard of 1 gr per day for curing cancer. Thus, they created a mix of half gram of coconut oil with half gram of cannabis into a syringe, inserting the syringe rectally, and squeezing the total amount 2 times a day. This gave her the full daily amount of THC needed to meet the one gram a day standard without the psychotropic effects of oral ingestion, vaping, or smoking cannabis.

The back door method is the best approach when it comes to lung issues. Essential oils that are absorbed into the abdominal veins bypass the liver and are fed directly into the heart-lung circulatory system without previously being subjected to bio-transformation by the liver detox enzyme system. Then they reach the lower bronchial capillaries in their original lipophilic and volatile state, still capable of eliminating pathogenic microorganisms and dissolving and expectorating mucus.

The original Rick Simpson Oil is made with a pound of hemp and naphtha, a toxic solvent which is highly flammable, but smaller amounts of bud (1 oz.) with 190 proof grain alcohol (95% by volume) can be used to produce full extract cannabis oil. It has been proven to work safely, easily, and requires less of this wonder plant. The video (below) explains everything. Check it out.

How many ways did Humboldt get raped today?

March 14, 2017
By Linda Cassara

A seven page County Agenda took a record ten minutes. Debate is not on their Agenda. There were 18 items on the Consent Calendar, motioned, seconded and voted on by all five in the affirmative. One must ask; what about the items that need 4/5 vote to pass? How do they know by voting on 18 items in one fell swoop that four of the five will cast a yes vote? Could it be convene, collude and concur?

Example of one of the thrusts:

Agenda Item No. C-14
By:                        Thomas K. Mattson, Public Works Director
FY 2016-2017 (4/5 Vote Required)

Between the time the budget was adopted and now, there has been a shortfall for replacement Sheriff patrol vehicles.   [This simply isn’t fact. New toys have been added since a few months after the MZ theft went into effect (4-1-15). They’re parked all around the vicinity of the Sheriff’s Dept., as well as the mental health/planning dept., parking lot. I have pictures.]

Motor Pool has no AWD patrol vehicles left in storage and Motor Pool needs to pull five currently used due to high mileage. Bids have been received. The cost of the five replacement vehicles is $178,750. An additional funding request is needed to purchase these vehicles.

The cost [?] will be offset from the sale of the surplus vehicles in the amount of $99,600. The balance of the Motor Pool Fund as of January 31, 2017 was $3.5 million. The recommended minimum balance is $2 million. There are sufficient funds available to purchase the five (5) replacement vehicles. This action will reduce the fund balance by $33,000.

None in storage
Pull 5 in use                          Replacement cost of the 5 in use is $178,750
The surplus sale                                                                           99,600
Motor Pool Fund balance                                                           3,500,000
Debit the Motor Pool Fund                                                              33,000

The item will advance the Board’s core role, to provide community-appropriate levels of service.

. . . and ‘job description’ fades into black, then returns as “Core Role.” This is akin to during the ‘Abatement Hearings,’ when The County, @ $87,450 each, melds into judge, jury, and executioner “roles.”   $18 to $20 some thousand gets sucked from the people’s public treasury and credited to the Commie Counsel (of 18) Revenue account. <<bookkeeping at its best!

BTW, another 704 acres “in the Benbow area” bit the dust.

My once a week 3 minute Public fix for March 14, 2017:

Your Agenda should be titled “Manufactured Chaos.”

Due process does not include Implied Conditions, Presumed Intent, or Incomplete Contracting. Due process is not willful failure of the real parties of interest to be present at their own trial(s). Due process does not cause psychic damage because of a Double Cross.

Prohibition for profit is reprehensible.

There is no justification for damage operations, yet some of the million-a-month theft of Measure Z, unlawfully including the 7 incorporated cities, has been tagged for the Sheriff’s Dept. for implementing Your COMMERCIAL ORDINANCE.

Is there a record number of times I have to say something before you get the message?

[I held up (and left a copy for Mike Wilson), the same newspaper clipping that I’ve read into the public record several times –and left copies throughout the past six years.] Cities and Counties Cannot Enforce Ordinances on Private Property. The basic tenants of economics are willing buyer and willing sellers. The price is based on the relative values assigned by each, not by the cost of the labor. GubberNut isn’t even a part of the equation.

Humboldt County Supervisors’ top three duties on their job description list is: repair and maintain roads, protect the forests, and protect the rivers. You have failed at all three.

The Infrastructure Is Scary Bad

Not read into the Humboldt County
Public realm
Tuesday February 21, 2017
By Linda Cassara

Since Bass has been Chair of the BOD -a g a I n- there’s no telling when public forum is. AS IN, no fixed time on the Agenda. I wasn’t able to get to Eureka until just before 11:00. The County Inc’s BOD’s 9:00 a.m. meeting was over. Doors locked. Gone. Posted outside the entrance doors of 825 Fifth Street is a copy of the Agenda. Public Hearing was randomly listed as item D.

The Infrastructure is scary bad, and the forests are dying. Meanwhile . . . the local owned media jargon entertains with a spin about Vehicle Abatement. What would happen if KMUD’s Bonnie Blackberry interviewed fact instead of fiction?

February 28th – a gathering of manufactured chaos

What should be on all of our minds, and isn’t, is; why are pretend supervisors consolidating next week with a horde of others of like mind? What would Humboldt Inc’s status quo have, to bring to the table? What story can they share about adding value to society? Rubbing elbows with the likes of Kern County’s police brutality mind set, or Butte County’ dinge, can only lead to disaster for the peasants –you and me. Will they discuss Barry Manilow and list their ‘traveling at county expense’ totals for this Luciferian show of cartoons in a cartoon graveyard?

When we are confronted with the fact of willful failure to repair and maintain roads, #1 on their job description list, there isn’t any other place to go. The performance part of the contract isn’t being fulfilled. “F” on your report card is Not something you take to share with others who also create problems and pretend to solve them with more of the same thinking that created the problems in the first place. There’s no bragging or self-aggrandizement to hang onto. They can’t perform their main duty. We have no use for losers in office. There is no logical reason for public servant impostors to go celebrate their criminal parasitic behavior. And now we’re saddled with Access Humboldt and a Director to boot.   Broadcast in Access Humboldt is spelled: FDA, FBI, Sheriff, Police, and DHS wearing matching combat uniforms, bayonets in hand and helmets with face masks completes the scene.

Middle finger salute to Billy Honsal berthing Access Humboldt!   At the Feb. 7 BOD’s meeting, Honsal reiterated a southern Humboldt suicide scene from about a year ago. Keep in mind that the million-a-month ½% countywide Tax fraud had been in effect 10 months. Honsal’s re-telling of why HazMat showed up, and then Fish & Game, is not to my recollection.   It was, at the time after all, propaganda to prepare the common grower population for more foreign invasion. Right after the “All corporate agents show-up for a divvy of the pie” suicide episode, last spring and summer brought us stories of told and untold raids – inclusive of HazMat, Fish and Game and some sort of Water Resource Board gurus. The corporate agencies represented at mostly nobody-home-private-property-trespass thefts, grew to an unbelievable number and climaxed with a fake raid report in Miranda that included “national” Legal enforcement. The only times we saw Downey performing was for a photo op with camouflage–clad militants under his command, out in a field somewhere, and a Sheriff ‘talk-along’ visit in Garberville just after a man was beat to death on the town square – which was 16 months into the million-a-month ½% Tax fraud. How many ‘Lifers’ in the local jail is Downey bequeathing to us?

Do you suppose the disgraceful conformists of Humboldt Inc. will have on hand a certified copy of their medical certificates next Tuesday? –You know, some sort of evidence for their claim to use the word “medical” in a self-ordained health Ordinance. And some proof that the shipped 1,100 pounds – pounds were medicinal. That’s pounds. Not milligrams contained, or total in ounce containers, or maybe cartons, as “medical” shipment quantities are referred to in modern times, but pounds! Eleven hundred pounds of “medical” herb exited Humboldt County bearing a “Humboldt” stamp. The question remains – what part, or parts, of the herb was shipped for commercial sale -in the medicinal world? Shipped to? For further processing? Last time I looked medicinal products specifically, are not taxable.

We have to take from nature as nature provides.   This isn’t up for debate. Remember hothouse tomatoes? They bore sticker stamps too. I call it plastic flower idolatry.

The Modern Renaissance

“Laws restricting nonviolent activity are acts of aggression.”  

J.G. Vibes writes; If something is frowned upon or taboo, you can rest assured that there is someone out there who thinks that it should be illegal. All too often those people are very quick to suggest that the proper solution to this problem is to throw that person in a cage. That may sound kind of harsh, but that is exactly what you are advocating when you claim that something should be illegal.

Does this really seem like a proper one-size-fits-all solution for our social problems, especially those where there is no violence, theft or fraud involved?   There is no dispute that violence, theft or fraud should be unlawful because no one wants to get hurt, or robbed, or murdered.

However, when you start getting into nonviolent action, where there has been no theft, is bringing aggression upon one or more of the people in the form of kidnap and imprisonment really going to make anyone safer? Furthermore, is this an ethical, humane, or civilized way of treating nonviolent people?

Using imprisonment as a blanket solution for anything that may come along is a totally irresponsible and lazy way to do things. In all honesty, this approach ensures that the problem will never be solved, because it prevents any real solutions from being developed and only works to make a non-complicated social issue complicated.

There are also many side effects of these policies which actually pose a serious threat to the health and safety of our entire population. Many times these side effects are referred to as “unintended” consequences, but all of the outcomes of these actions are totally planned and expected.

When those with authority create Legalese that ban nonviolent actions and inanimate objects, they understand the implications of what they are doing, but they put those policies into effect anyway because they have a great deal to gain in this process. This is why they are so reluctant to change, even in the face of obvious failure and public outcry. The social problems that are created by prohibition give the establishment a lot of busy jobs and a constant excuse to violate the rights and privacy of those within its grasp. This situation is just one of many preventable disasters that the State foments and allows to continue as a means of justifying its own existence.

It’s clear that an Agenda is operating here. However, it has nothing to do with the people or land jurisdiction. If you intend to carry on in your world of fiction smoke & mirrors show, at the very least stop coercing the people seated here to join you in pledging allegiance to a 4-colored flag that says Admiralty Law of the Sea Merchant –guilty until proven innocent –as if we’re out on the sea of commerce. Tell the people that no rules apply to you and you are not responsible for any of your actions. Tell them that the Rules of Order, the Rules of Grammar, the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and the Supreme Law of the Land have no meaning whatsoever to you – and why?

Why isn’t fact, truth and law any part of these public meetings?

Why should anyone with seven or more functioning brain cells not view this BOD’s actions as Acts of war offense to the sovereign? How can any of you just slide on in here and acknowledge a despicable section on Your Agenda called “Consent Calendar,” containing as many as 28 items, when each and every one begs for debate? No wonder mold and stagnation have taken over, there’s no ‘words-on-paper’ age or term limits.

You were never delegated authority to Invest the People’s Public Treasury. Yet, last week, without any conscious thought whatsoever, impersonating public servants – YOU delegated authority you did not have, to John Bartholomew the Tax Collector, to be fully responsible for investing money that he did not earn, that is not his or yours or any corporate governmental service employees’.   Investing the people’s treasury monies is not what a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, does.

Nothing is read into the public records, none of the people are involved, and yet somehow it’s okay to spend money you didn’t earn without the consent of the governed?   The whimsical notion of providing ‘health’ or ‘safety’ is stating a position without evidence for the claim. You pretend to protect the people, but in fact you are the major long-term threat to the people. Your fanatic fixation on what you believe to be mental illness was proved a long time ago to be someone that doesn’t accept their own tragedy. The local media is full-up on parroting whatever [imagined] External Authority says . . . the mental illness control tactic gets projected onto the people 24/7. Federal HHS is all over your Agendas – either more shrinks, shrink nurses and shrink staff are hired or getting a raise, or there’s a $300,000 paper pending with Dell & Microsoft that begins with HHS and oozes into Consolidation w/ the Presumed County Depts. to store email–“out there.” Another State slash Federal bribe is a surplus of 22 vehicles for the shrink dept., and EXTRA HOURS presented thru CAO, but upon closer look –that too is for HHS. When million$ are flushed on the federal HHS shrink dept., that translates into -the status quo ‘s BODs have all been bribed and surrendered state’s rights. The State of California (not California State), as a whole, has Consolidated/embedded with U.S. Inc., surrendering state’s rights to the tune of 45.8%. But! “the County” of Humboldt (not Humboldt County) has surrendered 64%.

This is about as far as I got, however I left both pages. Continuing on:

HHS has had a patent on cannabinoids since 2003. Yet HHS pumps man-made toxic solutions of opiates into the population under a guise of Another Humboldt “pilot program” training, and flushing $3.5 million on outside consultants for HHS “staff” –leaves no doubt as to why so many people can’t wake up. Abolish HHS and DEA – get U.S. Inc. out of Humboldt – Now!

With the exception of resolutions for acknowledgment, there isn’t one item on last week’s Agenda that doesn’t have a foundation of fraud and the stench of fascism. “Once a fraud. Always a fraud.” Just like Your Measure Z, Your MM Ordinance of semantic deceit aimed at a particular class of people, with intent to destroy a culture; smells to the high heaven. So divide and conquer. Pit those who bent over and grabbed their ankles against those who reserve their right to not contract with thugs.

Now that we know that farming 10,000 acres of hemp will provide as much paper, building materials, and pulp as 41,000 acres of forest, there’s no logic in logging. STOP LOGGING! PLANT HEMP!

When the word Ordinance is used by THE COUNTY’S 18 (EIGHTEEN) paid commies, that is supposed to somehow control private property -via 17 zones!- written in aggressive Old World master slave Fiction of statutory democracy, against the growers . . . against the farmers . . . You want to eliminate the only real part of the equation!! Its past time to rid ourselves of the criminal parasites trespassing on American soil; the so-titled British Accreditation Registry cult. Americans have endured their Satanic presence for 150 years -that has brought us to 2.4 million caged Americans. Over half a million are caged for possession [of plant parts -sick]. Every 25 seconds, someone in America is caged for possession – more than 1.25 million a year.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. “All the things that I do are bent on forcing this [vaccine] debate out into the open—because once the science is in the open, the CDC’s position is so fragile, it’s an edifice of fraud, fraud stacked upon fraud, so high and so wobbly, that even a slight breeze of public scrutiny will topple it.”

Kennedy states that President Trump has appointed him to head up a task force investigating vaccine safety. The above quote indicates Kennedy, would, if given the green light, probe much more than the use of mercury in vaccines—his main topic of interest thus far.

This would be a very good thing. The CDC is most certainly an edifice of fraud. It has concealed many of its crimes over the years.

If he hasn’t already, Kennedy should make contact with an anonymous group of scientists at the CDC who call themselves Spider. They have written a letter to the CDC chief of staff accusing the agency of widespread “unethical practices…influenced and shaped by outside parties…[that] threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health.”

In my recent open letter to Spider, I presented three shocking areas of fraud at the CDC that they should expose:

Swine Flu, a dud and phony “epidemic,” presented as a dire global threat requiring vaccination;

A structural conflict of interest, in which the CDC buys billions of dollars of vaccines and, at the same time, carries out many studies assessing vaccine safety—with this much money on the line, the Agency would never, under any circumstances, admit vaccines are dangerous;

A massive overestimation of annual flu deaths in the US, in order to push the necessity of the flu vaccine.

In this second memo, I present two more shocking areas which should receive the immediate attention of the dissident Spider scientists at the CDC, and Mr. Kennedy:


On August 27, 2014, CDC scientist William Thompson came out of the shadows and revealed that he had participated in a major scientific fraud:

Ten years earlier, he and his co-authors had published a study claiming there was no MMR-vaccine connection to autism. They had omitted vital data which contradicted that finding.

The MMR vaccine was increasing the risk of autism. Thompson knew it. So did his co-authors. They buried that chilling fact.

Before their fake study was published, Thompson wrote to the head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, informing her that, at an upcoming conference, he would be “presenting the summary of our results from the Metropolitan Atlanta Autism Case-Control Study [and]…I will have to present several problematic results relating to statistical associations between the receipt of MMR vaccine and autism.”

In other words, Thompson was ready to blow the whistle on the MMR vaccine-autism connection. He received no reply from CDC Director Gerberding, and his presentation at the conference was canceled.

Fast forward: in 2009, Gerberding left the CDC.

She eventually went to work as the president of the vaccine division at Merck.

Merck. Manufactures. The. MMR. Vaccine.

Get it?


Peter Doshi, PhD, writing in the online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals a monstrosity.

As Doshi states, every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory samples are taken from flu patients in the US and tested in labs. Here is the kicker: only a small percentage of these samples show the presence of a flu virus.

This means: most of the people in America who are diagnosed by doctors with the flu have no flu virus in their bodies.

So they don’t have the flu.

Therefore, even if you assume the flu vaccine is useful and safe, it couldn’t possibly prevent all those “flu cases” that aren’t flu cases.

The vaccine couldn’t possibly work.

The vaccine isn’t designed to prevent fake flu, unless pigs can fly.

Here’s the exact quote from Peter Doshi’s BMJ review, “Influenza: marketing vaccines by marketing disease” (BMJ 2013; 346:f3037):

“…even the ideal influenza vaccine, matched perfectly to circulating strains of wild influenza and capable of stopping all influenza viruses, can only deal with a small part of the ‘flu’ problem because most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.

“…It’s no wonder so many people feel that ‘flu shots’ don’t work: for most flus, they can’t.”

Because most diagnosed cases of the flu aren’t the flu.

So even if you’re a true believer in mainstream vaccine theory, you’re on the short end of the stick here. They’re conning your socks off. The CDC is supposed to be doing an accurate count of case numbers of diseases in the US. They’re lying and covering up the facts.

—Those of you in the Spider group of rebel scientists at the CDC, get busy. There are many more instances of massive corruption at your Agency. Dig in. Don’t let the American people down.

Go all the way.

You, too, Mr. Kennedy.

DEA Admits Constitutional Problems with Seizure Policies

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a public congressional cop-with-cash-300x200hearing in November to investigate recent allegations of misconduct in the Department of Justice (DOJ). The triggering event was a recent audit from the Office of the Inspector General (IG) that sharply criticized the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for potentially extensive “fraud, waste, and abuse” through years of lax oversight of its powerful but secretive Confidential Source (CS) Program.

In their respective testimonies, Inspector General Michael Horowitz and DEA spokesman Melvin Patterson both admitted the exploitative civil forfeiture policies that enabled the DEA’s misbehavior entail “Fourth Amendment issues.” These issues stem from perverse incentives for law enforcement to mistreat innocent people. In a revealing exchange with Rep. Tim Walberg of Michigan, Horowitz went so far as to affirm concerns that “the DEA’s policies are warping priorities by prioritizing asset forfeiture rather than the seizure of drugs.”

This is an extraordinary admission concerning an agency that exists and is explicitly named for its duty to enforce federal drug laws.

The audits’ findings, which were previously reported in Forbes, include the DEA paying $237 million to CS informants to seize property from people’s luggage and mail as “evidence” of unsubstantiated wrongdoing. Agency sources who facilitated civil forfeitures stood to gain kickbacks “of up to $500,000 or 25 percent” of each seizure, whereas the DEA managed to shirk private citizen’s constitutional protections. As such, DOJ investigators determined these transactions “could have implications relating to compliance with the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

The DEA acknowledged in Patterson’s testimony that it failed even to track metrics on the effectiveness of its CS program and rampant civil forfeiture, such as “convictions [and] drug seizures.” Horowitz and Patterson also admitted the DEA did not keep accurate accounting of its expenditures or whether any of its efforts were “worth it” even on the agency’s terms.

This embarrassing reality probably led to former DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart’s stubborn, year-long obstruction of the IG’s efforts to hold the agency accountable. As Horowitz’s congressional testimony noted, the previous DEA leadership managed to delay the audit’s completion by 18 months. Only when new leadership took over did the agency finally cooperate with the IG and make information fully available for review.

This hearing highlights the systemic abuse civil forfeiture enables against hardworking families. The Institute for Justice will continue to advocate in court and with policymakers to enact necessary reforms that protect innocent Americans from this unconstitutional practice.

Power to the People: John Lennon’s Legacy Lives On

By John W. Whiteheadjohn-lennon-2
December 05, 2016

“You gotta remember, establishment, it’s just a name for evil. The monster doesn’t care whether it kills all the students or whether there’s a revolution. It’s not thinking logically, it’s out of control.”—John Lennon (1969)

Militant nonviolent resistance works.

Peaceful, prolonged protests work.

Mass movements with huge numbers of participants work.

Yes, America, it is possible to use occupations and civil disobedience to oppose government policies, counter injustice and bring about change outside the confines of the ballot box.

It has been done before. It is being done now. It can be done again.

For example, in May of 1932, more than 43,000 people, dubbed the Bonus Army—World War I veterans and their families—marched on Washington. Out of work, destitute and with families to feed, more than 10,000 veterans set up tent cities in the nation’s capital and refused to leave until the government agreed to pay the bonuses they had been promised as a reward for their services.

The Senate voted against paying them immediately, but the protesters didn’t budge. Congress adjourned for the summer, and still the protesters remained encamped. Finally, on July 28, under orders from President Herbert Hoover, the military descended with tanks and cavalry and drove the protesters out, setting their makeshift camps on fire. Still, the protesters returned the following year, and eventually their efforts not only succeeded in securing payment of the bonuses but contributed to the passage of the G.I. Bill of Rights.

Similarly, the Civil Rights Movement mobilized hundreds of thousands of people to strike at the core of an unjust and discriminatory society. Likewise, while the 1960s anti-war movement began with a few thousand perceived radicals, it ended with hundreds of thousands of protesters, spanning all walks of life, demanding the end of American military aggression abroad.

Most recently, after months of protests over the construction of a pipeline that members of the Sioux tribe insisted would harm their water supply, the Army Corp of Engineers has agreed to look for an alternate route for the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

This kind of “power to the people” activism—grassroots, populist and potent—is exactly the brand of civic engagement John Lennon advocated throughout his career as a musician and anti-war activist.

It’s been 36 years since Lennon was gunned down by an assassin’s bullet on December 8, 1980, but his legacy and the lessons he imparted in his music and his activism have not diminished over the years.

All of the many complaints we have about government today—surveillance, militarism, corruption, harassment, SWAT team raids, political persecution, spying, overcriminalization, etc.—were present in Lennon’s day and formed the basis of his call for social justice, peace and a populist revolution.

Little wonder, then, that the U.S. government saw him as enemy number one.

Because he never refrained from speaking truth to power, Lennon became a prime example of the lengths to which the U.S. government will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority.

Lennon was the subject of a four-year campaign of surveillance and harassment by the U.S. government (spearheaded by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover), an attempt by President Richard Nixon to have him “neutralized” and deported. As Adam Cohen of the New York Times points out, “The F.B.I.’s surveillance of Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose. What is more surprising, and ultimately more unsettling, is the degree to which the surveillance turns out to have been intertwined with electoral politics.”

Years after Lennon’s assassination, it would be revealed that the FBI had collected 281 pages of surveillance files on him. As the New York Times notes, “Critics of today’s domestic surveillance object largely on privacy grounds. They have focused far less on how easily government surveillance can become an instrument for the people in power to try to hold on to power. ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ … is the story not only of one man being harassed, but of a democracy being undermined.”

Such government-directed harassment was nothing new.

The FBI has had a long history of persecuting, prosecuting and generally harassing activists, politicians, and cultural figures, most notably among the latter such celebrated names as folk singer Pete Seeger, painter Pablo Picasso, comic actor and filmmaker Charlie Chaplin, comedian Lenny Bruce and poet Allen Ginsberg. Among those most closely watched by the FBI was Martin Luther King Jr., a man labeled by the FBI as “the most dangerous and effective Negro leader in the country.”

In Lennon’s case, the ex-Beatle had learned early on that rock music could serve a political end by proclaiming a radical message. More importantly, Lennon saw that his music could mobilize the public and help to bring about change.

For instance, in 1971 at a concert in Ann Arbor, Mich., Lennon took to the stage and in his usual confrontational style belted out “John Sinclair,” a song he had written about a man sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing two marijuana cigarettes. Within days of Lennon’s call for action, the Michigan Supreme Court ordered Sinclair released.

While Lennon believed in the power of the people, he also understood the danger of a power-hungry government. “The trouble with government as it is, is that it doesn’t represent the people,” observed Lennon. “It controls them.”

By March 1971, when his “Power to the People” single was released, it was clear where Lennon stood. Having moved to New York City that same year, Lennon was ready to participate in political activism against the U. S. government, the “monster” that was financing the war in Vietnam.

The release of Lennon’s Sometime in New York City album, which contained a radical anti-government message in virtually every song and depicted President Richard Nixon and Chinese Chairman Mao Tse-tung dancing together nude on the cover, only fanned the flames of the conflict to come.

However, the official U.S. war against Lennon began in earnest in 1972 after rumors surfaced that Lennon planned to embark on a U.S. concert tour that would combine rock music with antiwar organizing and voter registration. Nixon, fearing Lennon’s influence on about 11 million new voters (1972 was the first year that 18-year-olds could vote), had the ex-Beatle served with deportation orders “in an effort to silence him as a voice of the peace movement.”

As Lennon’s FBI file shows, memos and reports about the FBI’s surveillance of the anti-war activist had been flying back and forth between Hoover, the Nixon White House, various senators, the FBI and the U.S. Immigration Office.

Nixon’s pursuit of Lennon was relentless and misplaced.

Despite the fact that Lennon was not plotting to bring down the Nixon Administration, as the government feared, the government persisted in its efforts to have him deported. Equally determined to resist, Lennon dug in and fought back. Every time he was ordered out of the country, his lawyers delayed the process by filing an appeal.

Finally, in 1976, Lennon won the battle to stay in the country and by 1980, he had re-emerged with a new album and plans to become politically active again. The old radical was back and ready to cause trouble.

Unfortunately, Lennon’s time as a troublemaker was short-lived.

Mark David Chapman was waiting in the shadows on Dec. 8, 1980, just as Lennon was returning to his New York apartment building.

As Lennon stepped outside the car to greet the fans congregating outside, Chapman, in an eerie echo of the FBI’s moniker for Lennon, called out, “Mr. Lennon!”

Lennon turned and was met with a barrage of gunfire as Chapman—dropping into a two-handed combat stance—emptied his .38-caliber pistol and pumped four hollow-point bullets into his back and left arm. Lennon stumbled, staggered forward and, with blood pouring from his mouth and chest, collapsed to the ground.

John Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Much like Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy and others who have died attempting to challenge the powers-that-be, Lennon had finally been “neutralized.”

Still, you can’t murder a movement with a bullet and a madman: Lennon’s legacy lives on in his words, his music and his efforts to speak truth to power.

As Yoko Ono shared in a 2014 letter to the parole board tasked with determining whether Chapman should be released: “A man of humble origin, [John Lennon] brought light and hope to the whole world with his words and music. He tried to be a good power for the world, and he was. He gave encouragement, inspiration and dreams to people regardless of their race, creed and gender.”

Lennon’s work to change the world for the better is far from done.

Peace remains out of reach. Activism and whistleblowers continue to be prosecuted for challenging the government’s authority. Militarism is on the rise, all the while the governmental war machine continues to wreak havoc on innocent lives.

For those of us who joined with John Lennon to imagine a world of peace, it’s getting harder to reconcile that dream with the reality of the American police state. And as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, those who do dare to speak up are labeled dissidents, troublemakers, terrorists, lunatics, or mentally ill and tagged for surveillance, censorship or, worse, involuntary detention.

As Lennon shared in a 1968 interview:

“I think all our society is run by insane people for insane objectives… I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal means. If anybody can put on paper what our government and the American government and the Russian… Chinese… what they are actually trying to do, and what they think they’re doing, I’d be very pleased to know what they think they’re doing. I think they’re all insane. But I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”

So what’s the answer?

Lennon had a multitude of suggestions.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”

“Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It’s quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders….You have to do it yourself.”

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”

“If you want peace, you won’t get it with violence.”

“Say you want a revolution / We better get on right away / Well you get on your feet / And out on the street / Singing power to the people.”

And my favorite advice of all: “All you need is love. Love is all you need.”

Not Just Bees, Trees Are Dying Off at an Alarming Rate With Little Public Attention






Northern California

In the background of modern life, as people go on debating politics and working for a living, something dreadful is happening to the eco-systems which support us. Major disasters like the ongoing radioactive leak at Fukushima, the apocalyptic fires burning throughout Indonesia, even bee colony collapse disorder, seem to fall out of view in day-to-day life, as we seem to have lost our power and will to directly participate in the stewardship of planet earth.

A new crisis is now happening all around us affecting trees. It appears that millions, hundreds of millions even, of trees are dying in North America and around the world from a basket of reasons, promising to completely and permanently alter the landscape and environment around us.

Tree are among the most abundant and the most critical organisms on planet earth, and only recently have we been able to assess just how many trees inhabit planet earth. A study published in 2015 gave us this picture:

   “A new study published in Nature estimates the planet has 3.04 trillion trees. The research says 15.3 billion trees are chopped down every year. It also estimates that 46% of the world’s trees have been cleared over the past 12,000 years.” [Source]

Now in 2016, alarm bells are ringing and in California alone, the problem has become incredibly severe:

   “The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that the U.S. Forest Service has identified an additional 36 million dead trees across California since its last aerial survey in May 2016. This brings the total number of dead trees since 2010 to over 102 million on 7.7 million acres of California’s drought stricken forests. In 2016 alone, 62 million trees have died, representing more than a 100 percent increase in dead trees across the state from 2015. Millions of additional trees are weakened and expected to die in the coming months and years.” [Source]

A New York Times feature on trees in California warns us that many of the state’s trees were already dead before forest fires moved in, thereby making the fire situation worse.

Beyond California

Many of the tree deaths in Northern California have been linked to Sudden Oak Death in addition to an ongoing drought, but, the tragic die-off of trees is far from limited to California. In 2010, Hawaii’s well ohi’a trees began to die on the Big Island due to a disease now referred to as ohi’a disease, and scientists still don’t understand its origins or how to treat it. These are just a few examples of many in a wave of issues killing trees in many parts of America and around the world.

   “The plight of the ohi’a is not unique – it’s part of a quiet crisis playing out in forests across America. Drought, disease, insects and wildfire are chewing up tens of millions of trees at an incredible pace, much of it driven by climate change.” [Source]

Entire mountainsides are dying off in short order, leaving a bleak future for wildlife and residents. Some speculate that the widespread loss of trees due to such a wide conflagration of issues is a sign that trees, the most rugged of all plants, are in general weakened from an environment under complex attack by pollution and even climate engineering projects.

   “In California and in other parts of the world, many are making the connection between climate engineering these tree die-offs. Also known as geoengineering, this is the modification of the earth’s atmosphere with the supplementation of compounds and chemicals, ostensibly as a means of favorably influencing the climate.” [Source]

Could be, although there is nothing like a consensus on the issue of why trees are in such a weakened state that so many are succumbing to so many issues.

Thousands of trees killed by mountain pine beetles in western Rocky Mountain national park.

A Planet Out of Balance

   “Natural ecosystems have been altered in various ways by nitrogen, sulfur, and mercury deposited in rain, snow, or as gases and particles in the atmosphere. Through decades of scientific research, scientists have documented how local, regional, and global sources of air pollution can produce profound changes in ecosystems. These changes include acidification of soils and surface waters, harmful algal blooms and low oxygen conditions in estuaries, reduced diversity of native plants, high levels of mercury in fish and other wildlife, and decreased tolerance to other stresses, such as pests, disease, and planned climate change.” – Issues in Ecology, Fall 2011 Edition – “Setting Limits – Using Air Pollution Thresholds to Protect and Restore U.S. Ecosystems”

The web of life cannot be damaged in one area without the effects being felt elsewhere. Just as bees and other insects are dying off en masse by a number of causes, some known and unknown, trees are also harbingers of the health of our planet. With such little attention given to the state of this earth and so much attention given to the human and political dramas that occupy our attention 24/7, will the human race wake up and react in time to avert a major planetary crisis?
