Be A Golden Rule Citizen


Back in 2002, I wrote to Lou Dobbs at CNN and joked with him about how I'd had a very bizarre life, and I just sort of let all kinds of  things "play out" in front of my eyes just to see what would happen or where the "ulterior motives" would lead.  

At the time, I was broadcasting my own newscasts daily, and enjoyed his economic reports and pragmatism, whether I agreed with him or not, and was just making contact as one "reporter to another". Sometimes being familiar with them can also cause them to answer questions in their reports, directly or as part of another report.

Even though I had a number of bizarre experiences, positive and negative, I always felt like I'd been very privileged to be able to do things that most people would not have the chance to do. 

I got to talk to some great musicians, observe and interview national politicians, got to be a broadcaster on music stations, worked for the Dept. of Justice during the Teamster Election  and learned about punch cards, butterfly ballots, counting machines and election procedures right before Election 2000. I learned about insurance companies and pharmaceuticals, worked with international software companies, human potential development, accounting and economics, and... working as a consultant, you get to see and understand a variety of things that a 40 hour a week job doesn't allow you to be a part of.

I grew up in what I believed was a true land of opportunity. As a young person and then as a teen I was in high school speech contests, almost always talking about how great this nation the United States is, believing the Constitution and Bill of Rights represented the most perfect documents upon which to organize a government there could be, so long as its intent was honored and its wisdom understood, that require the government and citizens to honor certain basic rules of citizenship and governance that can never be denied, overlooked or overridden by laws passed for any reason.

After election 2000, I began collecting documentation showing what politicians said about issues and programs they were promoting, and then following up on specific issues to see what actually happened. It was rare that public statements reflected what actually happened. In 2000, even I didn't know that Congress often passes laws to create and manage Federal Programs and then never do them because a Congressional Appropriations Committee decides afterward not to fund them, even though the same congress people will claim they passed laws and created programs they covertly stopped.

In November 2002, after hundreds of hours of research and viewing the facts and global trends I was observing, after the elections of 2002, I came to the conclusion the the Democrats did not actually attempt to win seats in the house of representatives or Senate, in order to allow the Republicans a "tri-fecta" - control of all 3 branches of government allowing them to pass laws without opposition, which they did. 

But by November 2002...

Looking at the economic trends and thus the future economic problems developing for the United States, as well as the divisive political tactics used by Democrats and Republicans, as well as a familiarity with plans apparently developed in the early 1900's and later greatly re-written and shaped by Jimmy Carter on behalf of what is now known as the Council on Foreign Relations - something called the Tri-lateral Plan released in 1958. 

My father said that the basic idea was good but if it went awry it would very bad, because it ultimately relied on absolute power, and of course, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

What little I ever heard were his and many other people's concerns about these plans - the tyranny of absolute power, political, military and medical practices that would otherwise be concerned unfair, inhumane or that diminish the value of life...

So, in November 2002...

I made it known to many people in the media and politics that I would be a candidate for the presidency, and filed to do that formally in 2003.

I'll write a little more below to explain why you may not have ever heard of me.

But, as far as I'm concerned, and as far as FEC Rules are concerned, I have been a candidate for the presidency in 2004, 2008 and now, 2012. I state categorically that I did not withdraw from any of  those elections, but I was prevented by federal, State and Local Authorities from running for office in each of  those elections. 

In 2000, like most people, I believed there was likely some corruption in our government, but that our government and this nation were the greatest, moral ethical nation and government in the world.

I still believe that's true of the citizens, and I still hope there are some politicians in office who are actually there - not believing they have to go along to get along, or that they have to play it safe in order to get re-elected. Politicians who understand and will fight for their responsibility to represent the citizens who elected them them, as well as those who voted against them. Citizens who voted for the promises and methods pledged by individuals who claim to care more for their country than themselves. Who understand that the Constitution is not a limitation to congressional or executive powers, but the wisdom of our forefathers who came to this country seeking and understanding liberty, with hundreds of years of cultural experience imported from England and Europe and other nations that made certain basic mistakes that lead to the destruction of it all... who created the Constitution knowing that honoring it would prevent the eventual decay of a nation.

It always begins with representatives who forget they represent citizens first, not long term corporate or empirical goals. It proceeds with the decay of infrastructure, the loss of manufacturing capabilities, then poverty and disease.

I decided to run for president in 2002, and to continue to attempt to in 2008 and 2012. I believed that if I had a real opportunity as an independent candidate in 2008 and now, in 2012, that I would win.

As I stated when I wrote "We Have A Voice" in 2002, I decided to run because I wanted to help this nation at a time when ideologies and deceptive public speaking and laws were deceiving the citizens of the United States, as I watched manufacturing and industrialization being given to China - a plan I witnessed beginning before 2000 - with the cooperation of the U.S. Govt. working with the  International Monetary Fund (IMF), something George W. Bush said he would do, and Barack Obama has perpetuated. All part of a plan to "retire" the aging U.S. population. Proof of this "retirement" is the law under the Bush Administration to allow corporations to spend retirement funds and not honor their pension and retirement plans promised to employees.

I also ran because I believed in the U.S. Constitution, and that the government would honor my rights - since I was not a terrorist or a militant - in 2002, what I was was a reporter. Further, a webmaster and then the founder of a 501C3 non-profit organization called the Global Democratic Citizens Union created initially to report and disseminate information, about politics, global conditions and on the website - actually just share the discrepancies between public statements and actual government policy and law. Further, I had decided to use the GDCU to also create businesses and services most people believe the government provides but actually doesn't, ranging from health care and medical services, empowering homeless and poverty stricken people, locating and providing economical power and alternative housing and power technologies, as well as promoting Democracy Globally and teaching and mediating conflict resolution.

Also in 2002 -

I was watching the news, a story about Alabama Supreme  Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, and it reminded me of something that happened when I was a freshman in high school.

A classmate walks up to me out of nowhere and says "Did you know these are the end of days?"

I remember saying to her, "I've heard of that".

Later, I got out a Bible and looked through its concordance, read Daniel and Ezekiel and Revelations. I didn't really understand it all, but with what little I knew and under stood, I figured the world would come to an end in 1973. when the Symbionese Liberation Army and the Patty Hearst kidnapping happened, with their 7 headed snake in 1973, I thought to myself that it could be the beginning of the end. That's how little I knew and understood then.

What I did understand was the idea of persecution of Christians and people who believe in God in general. And when I heard the Judge Roy Moore story, I have to be honest and say I thought he went about things the wrong way, despite understanding and agreeing with the principle of the statement he was trying to make when placing a statue of the 10 commandments in the courthouse in Alabama without permission. 

I also believed the media was unfairly reporting on the people and personalities involved in Christian and religious movements and organizations, and thus, persecution.

So, to be a better reporter, I decided to read the Bible, cover to cover, looking at nearly every concordance entry to concordance entry to concordance entry cross- reference so I could truly understand what Christians believed in so that I could be fair to them as I further reported, as well as to be able to write and speak about Democracy and the importance of Separation of Church and State without the "state" losing sight of the moral and ethical principles the citizens expect the government to respect.

As a result of studying the Bible, I ended up studying everything from ancient history to economics, patterns of government and methods of colonialization and empire dating back to before the times of Jesus. 

After all that research - hundreds if not thousands of hours - I was able to tell that the government of the United States is a nation that was hijacked without regard to the will of the people. And few people know and understand that.

Since 2002, I have been subjected to things - situations and problems - that I never would have believed could occur in the  United States, only to find out they've been occurring for decades.

Not only was I not aware of it, the people who have illegally detained me and tortured and harassed me to prevent my candidacy, among other things, take great pleasure in pointing out the crimes committed against me, my family and other people, as well as treasonous crimes committed against the the citizens of the United States and other people, always claiming they enjoy doing that because they know they'll never be caught, and the U.S. Government won't prosecute them.

I honestly believe, in my case, their purpose is to silence me by murder, or at least, contain me... for the moment, it would be easy to prosecute them if only for the crimes committed since 2001. This would include people in federal and State elected offices, certain police and public "service' organizations being used as a front for illegal covert government operations and certain doctors, lawyers and other professionals cooperating with the destruction of people on government "enemies" lists.

Other purposes include preventing me from making additional complaints about crimes to police and federal authorities, as well as to cause me to believe there are no honest people, all supervised by the FBI to make me appear paranoid, anti-social... rebellious, extremist, radical... I'm one of the most "moderate" political types there could be. But they taught me a lot about their tactics to destroy political adversaries of this Council on Foreign Relations Government,  and they'll regret that in court.

All of the crimes and activities are part of what Senators Ted Kennedy and Frank Church investigated and banned in 1976. They include CoIntelPro, illegally surveilling, blacklisting and disrupting people's lives.... 

Executive Summary of the Church Committee
The Senate of the United States describes what happens to targets of government Psychological Operations. They just don't tell us why they allowed it to continue.

Unsavory and vicious tactics have been employed -- including anonymous attempts to break up marriages, disrupt meetings, ostracize persons from their professions, and provoke target groups into rivalries that might result in deaths.

Intelligence agencies have served the political and personal objectives of presidents and other high officials. While the agencies often committed excesses in response to pressure from high officials in the Executive branch and Congress, they also occasionally initiated improper activities and then concealed them from officials whom they had a duty to inform.

Governmental officials -- including those whose principal duty is to enforce the law --have violated or ignored the law over long periods of time and have advocated and defended their right to break the law.

Illegal medical experimentation too... things like Project Mockingbird, to use news media people to "psyop" certain people as detailed by Pulitzer winner Carl Bernstein in his report "The CIA and the Media"  How Americas Most Powerful News Media Worked Hand in Glove with the Central Intelligence Agency and Why the Church Committee Covered It Up, also found at 

Among the executives who lent their cooperation to the Agency were Williarn Paley of the Columbia Broadcasting System, Henry Luce of Tirne Inc., Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York Times, Barry Bingham Sr. of the LouisviIle Courier-Journal, and James Copley of the Copley News Service. Other organizations which cooperated with the CIA include the American Broadcasting Company, the National Broadcasting Company, the Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald-Tribune. 

By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National auto determination practiced in past centuries"--David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991

One other thing I learned that as very disturbing yet symptomatic of the attitude of this government toward its people: the deception and coversion that goes far beyond typical corruption.

Senator John Glenn, former astronaut, made this statement in the U.S. Senate in 1997 during the Clinton Administration.


THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD January 22, 1997 Statements on Introduced Bills and Joint Resolutions
(Page S645) Excerpted  Human Research Subject Protection Act


"If I approached any Senator here and I said, 'You did not know it, but the last time they went to the doctor or went to the hospital, your wife or your husband or your daughter or your son became the subject of a medical experiment that they were not even told about. They were given medicine, they were given pills, they were given radiation, they were given something and were not even told about this, were not even informed about it, yet they are under some experimental research that might possibly do them harm - maybe some good will come out of it, but maybe it will do them harm also - but they do not know about it,' people would laugh at that and say that is ridiculous. That cannot possibly happen in this country. Yet, that very situation is what this piece of legislation is supposed to address".


"As I started out, I would like to put this on a personal level for everyone of my colleagues. You just think about your own family, your own son, your own daughter, or grandchildren who might be, the next time they go to a doctor, the subject of some medical experiment that they are not even told about. I do not think there can be many things more un-American than that".


"Everyone listening today probably has heard of the Nuremberg Code. That is the list of 10 ethical research principles which were produced as part of the judgment against Nazi physicians who engaged in truly heinous medical experiments during World War II."


"The first principle of the Nuremberg Code states that the voluntary consent of the human subject of research is absolutely essential. Unfortunately, as we look back through our history since the late 1940's, it appears that researchers in America may not have taken all that Nuremberg lesson completely to heart."

The reason I call this a symptom is because if  a government will do medical testing on a mass population, and defend or justify it, in a government that appears to believe that the ends justify the means...  then they are a government that will do anything they  can get away with. As Bill Clinton stated on CNN's Larry King, he doesn't always do things because they're right or wrong, he does them because he can.

That's the attitude of the U.S. Government. Another example: 

  • Claiming we send people on extraordinary rendition to places like Egypt and Syria to be tortured, and then condemning Egypt and Syria for torturing people.
  • Giving chemical weapons to Iraq and Iran at the same time during their 8 year war with each other.
  • Selling North Korea their nuclear reactor because it wasn't capable of providing fuel for nuclear bombs, then threatening them with nuclear war to eliminate the reactor we sold them, claiming it's a nuclear threat to the United States.
  • How about a nation that develops a contingency plan called Project Blue Beam to use electronic technology to stage /emulate the Second Coming of Christ? As a military contingency.... why would the United States do that?

These are but a very few examples of the kinds of deception being used by the U.S. Government - and there are many more I could inform you of that would make you very, very concerned. 

In 2000, I began working to report the news because I believed the country was a little off course, and I believed I could provide additional insight as to what was actually occurring.

Since 2002, I've seen the dark side of politics and government in the United States, where members of government believe their power makes them above the law, and will attempt to get away with anything their delusional egos will allow them to justify to themselves.

While the U.S. Government would want me to be soured about the future of this nation, to be demoralized at the idea  that they can and will continue to attempt to silence me about things I  wouldn't have known about if they hadn't taunted me with the arrogance and hubris of their crimes:

My message to the citizens of the United States is simple; as a citizen who took the Pledge of Allegiance seriously, who understands and appreciates Democracy, who believes the Constitution is an excellent framework for this nation, and as a citizen who  wanted nothing more than to  serve his fellow citizens at a time when this nation was being ideologically divided for political purposes, my commitment is still to help "straighten out" this government and be a force in causing it to  once again respect the constitution and the  citizens who own this nation. My concern for domestic issues has not changed, from health care to economic recovery in the form of new and refurbished business, tax reform, empowerment of citizens via economics and education...

And to the government of the United States... one day I still hope to find a person with first hand knowledge of why this happened to me.. let alone others... and I don't care what the public stories are, but I do know a few people who know the original truth of  it. Whatever name you want to give your ideological group these days, I'll never forget the part in the Bible about Idumeans...

I will not quit. I find it pathetic and extremely cowardly that the United states Government would attack a citizen on U.S. soil and attempt to publicly humiliate and extort them because of the crimes committed by the government to cause that public humiliation and extermination.

And I fully believe that when my work is through, given the continued arrogance and hubris of the government, many of the bravest cowards among you will be imprisoned or in hiding. It  was your gauntlet, I and I was not given a choice about whether to pick it up or not....

But remember, I did everything I could do participate in a political system I was not aware was this corrupt. And I did everything I could to make this be about policy, not criminality.

And the people of this nation did not vote for you because they wanted you to replace our constitution.
