What do Missing Emails, Government Corruption, and Elections have in Common? The State Department

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
News / Government

Hillary Clinton must be the elite's favorite come next election cycle for the Presidency. 

Email accounts have been hacked and the contents are now deleted from the Diplomatic Security Service criminal investigator, Richard Higbie. Sure, there is no problem with government overreach. If you are doing nothing wrong, then what's the problem with a little spying? Right?


Government is sanitizing information it does not want circulated, like criminal activities, tv shows. You name it. It's probably missing from your desktop or cloud storage.

Cary Schulman, Higbie's attorney, said, “We feel like we’re in a movie. It’s nuts. It makes us wonder . . . . maybe we’ve got something we don’t even realize or maybe they’re worried about something.”

You have something all right. You better have everything backed up and printed out. If not, you'll have to do it the old fashion way: start again with search warrants, grand jury, and deposition. 

The evidence against key officials in the State Department must have been damning.
The e-mails included evidence about misconduct by top officials at the department, communications with other potential whistleblowers there, and correspondence with members of Congress who are investigating the allegations, Schulman said.
Will the American people ever know? 

When election time rolls around, the American people should think long and hard about who their vote goes to. 

The Republicans and Democrats have already been sucked into the void of the United Nations, corporate government, and unelected bureaucratic councils and think tanks. 

Hillary Clinton has admitted that she relied on the Council for Foreign Relations (CFR) in order to do her job as Secretary of State. What other negative groups will she confide in if she is elected President of the United States?

Bilderberg? OECD? Trilateral Commission? 

Or will she expand the CIA and NSA unconstitutional spying powers like her predecessors for a more encompassing fascism?

It makes you wonder who is actually running the show because it doesn't seem to be our representative government. Oh maybe it is representative, not of the people, but for the collaborative agenda makers to set up the Grand Chess Board to play a real life Hunger Games with humanity.

CIA Corruption Vs. Freedom in America with Ray McGovern

Staff Writer, DLMullan
News / Government

In this week's episode of Buzzsaw, Tyrel Ventura interviews Ray McGovern:

CIA Corruption Vs. Freedom in America with Ray McGovern
Ray McGovern is an activist who writes and lectures about, among other issues, war and the role of CIA. He holds an M.A. in Russian Studies from Fordham University, a certificate in Theological Studies from Georgetown University, and is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program.

His intelligence work, beginning in US Army and continuing at the CIA, spanned seven presidents from President Kennedy to President George H.W. Bush. As an analyst on foreign policy, McGovern would synthesize material given to him on a daily basis and then brief senior White House advisers with his conclusions. Now retired, McGovern is proud of the fact that he reported his findings “without fear or favor” to the politicians and was supported in his work by his superiors.As a co-founder in 2003 of Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), McGovern speaks out against what he sees as corruption in the CIA, which allowed the agency´s integrity to bend to the will of President George W. Bush and his White House officials. During both the Bush and Obama years, the White House has eyed an attack on Iran to stop its apparent development of nuclear capabilities. McGovern has raised concerns over why an attack would be necessary, writing, “The very same men who…brought us the war in Iraq are now focusing on Iran, which they view as the only remaining obstacle to American domination of the entire, oil-rich Middle East.” He also called for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, suggesting, “Why not focus on a high crime that the Bush administration has already admitted to, with claims it is above the law and the Constitution: electronic eavesdropping on Americans without the required court warrant.”

How Decorum has Morphed into Political Correctness for Some and Emotive Attacks Against Others

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Government / Comedy / News

George Carlin, writer, comedian, and actor, was also a great commentator and activist. In this 1999, National Press Club speech, Mr. Carlin shows us how language has become so twisted and perverted that it is a wonder how we even communicate with each other.

Of course, that is the point.

Why would an establishment, liberal or conservative, want the people to be able to communicate with one another? Aren't the people best controlled and divided by a limiting and labeling language?
"George Carlin delivered a humorous speech in which he made fun of Washington politics and the language of politics. He also talked about America's penchant for euphemism and about labeling minorities. After his remarks he answered questions submitted from the audience."
Here is George Carlin's presentation: 

If over a decade ago, our language had been so changed and mangled by politically correct words, euphemisms, and labels, then how do we return our language to a better time. Not saying: let's insult as many people as possible today! But wouldn't that be a start?

Again if you speak truth to power or just your personal truth, the word police are waiting to write you a derogatory, hate-filled ticket. Take for instance Michael Eric Dyson, his inflammatory response to someone's free speech and beliefs was:
“Phil Robertson and the Duck Dynasty is part of a majority white supremacist culture that either consciously or unconsciously incubates hatred toward those who are different.”
Here's the video: MSNBC's Now

Mr. Dyson, if, what you are saying is somewhat true, then why are you on many cable news shows and host some as well? A culture, that is so divisive and segregative, would not allow such diversity, now would it? I don't believe you are giving credit to the vast majority of people on this planet or in this country.

And, didn't you just incubate hatred toward those who are different? It makes you think about how our discourse has faded into the inaccuracies of someone's personal issues. From the way you spoke, it sounds like you are harboring as much anger, resentment, and supremacy as those individuals you condemn on a national stage.

Just because someone has a religious or personal belief about something or someone does not mean that they are a white supremacist or promote a dominate overbearing culture. The fact that you are subverting the national language into a race war instead of celebrating the Constitution and Bill of Rights is an embarrassment. Isn't that in itself what you are railing against?

Maybe it's people who cry wolf over the smallest of social heterodox that are the problem.

Adults agree to disagree about subjects, but we are not a socialistic, communistic, communitarian culture, nation, or republic; we are a melting pot of every person, language, culture, and religion on this planet. 

To suggest that a reality show personality should lay waste to their belief system to satisfy someone else's hurt feelings is ridiculous. Isn't that how slavery begins? In this instance, slavery of the mind?

As a liberal democrat, I am appalled at the indulgence this nation has taken in this matter. It is nothing more than changing the dialogue from our federal government's corruption and degradation of our rights to he said; she said. Deplorable. Irresponsible. Immature.

The focus of the argument should always go back to the fundamentals of our nation. Is what he said, if you agree or not, his right to say, feel, and live that belief or conviction? According to the First Amendment, yes. Unless of course you are suggesting that the freedom of speech doesn't apply to others but only to your own attribution.

This instigative, emotional word vomit that is taught in schools and colleges needs to come back to Earth. We are not the puppet of the United Nations. We are the United States of America. 

Maybe you need to take a few minutes and listen to George Carlin's speech. 

The United States has its challenges. One is to reign in this divisive behavior that has no more relevance than Federal Reserve notes. It's just one more example on how the establishment wants to create strife where there is none so the people will not come together and set the world straight.

My point of view is that if you threaten the rights of one person, than you threaten the freedom of every person. You can thank my belief system on John F. Kennedy's assertion that America is based on freedom and equality. Again, that philosophy of every [hu]man is created equal and has equal protection under the law would probably make me a white supremacist too. 

Thank you, Michael Eric Dyson, for being apart of the problem and not the solution to the real situations we face as a nation, but by putting a face on the bigotry of mainstream media.

Earth to Villa de Paz: You MIght Be Missing an Electron

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Medicine / Holistic

Life sometimes leads on little journeys you have no idea why. You end up here and there. Then in a circular way you end up answering a question you didn't even know you had. 

The other day I was talking with a neighbor in Villa de Paz on the phone. Sorry, I don't remember who I was talking to, thank you brain inflammation, but I do remember what we were talking about: migraines. 

I suggested that she detox. In my experience many people with migraine and pain issues are full of environmental toxins that need to be taken out of their unbalanced systems. I know that is still correct, but she led me into another theory: Earthing. 

Earthing is the principle by which a person gets back to nature. Take your shoes off and stand on the Earth. As long as you are natural with nothing between you and dirt, grass, or even unsealed concrete, you are on the right path as it were.

Here's a little background before you go reading the Source material: the Earth is full of electrons. You have pain, illness, or dis-ease then you are in need of more electrons!  

The Lightning connection: 
There is a very significant electrical potential difference between the ground and the upper atmosphere that is responsible for generating lightning, which occurs all over the planet to help neutralize this difference. Even though you may not see any lightning when you glance outside at this very moment, it is important to realize that lightning is striking somewhere on Earth as you are reading this. This helps charge the ground with a large source of electrons. That's why the Earth's surface is negatively charged, or grounded, and why it's a natural source of electrons for your body.            
Grounding yourself through natural means or buying some Earthing gadgets, you can keep yourself in electrons all year long. It's that simple. Extra electrons may even aid in decreasing the aging process.

So go have fun puzzling your friends and family when you take off your shoes and stand out in the grass and sun for about fifteen minutes a day. Nothing says "me time" like a little quiet time in the back yard. Soak up those electrons and start feeling better!

Holy What, Batman?! That Dan Brown Novel Might Be Right?

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Religion / Secret Societies

Admit it. You've watched the Davinci Code. Worse is: you liked it.

Unfortunately, the movie (or book) has left you with questions: are the Knights Templar real? Is there a bloodline from Jesus Christ?

For the first question, the answer lies here:

In this episode of Buzzsaw, Sean Stone interviews Timothy Hogan. You might be surprised by his responses. 

The synopsis is: 
The Knights Templar, Masonic ritual and orders, history of the crusades and much more are discussed with Timothy Hogan. Unveiling the historical background of the orders and the spiritual secrets of the societies, Hogan traces bloodlines, freemasonry, templarism and illuminati in this uncensored interview with Sean Stone on Buzzsaw.
Now you are hungry for more information. For the last question, there is a book called Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Henry Lincoln, and Richard Leigh. So the questions brought up by Dan Brown might be satisfied once and for all. 

If not, then you are on a Grail Quest all your own.

Michigan's Nullification of the 2012 NDAA Indefinite Detention

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
News / Government

As of yesterday, Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan signed into law the nullification of the indefinite detention section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA.

Well, sort of.

Tenth Amendment Center’s Mike Maharrey explained: 

“By including a caveat — if such aid would place that state agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the Michigan national guard in violation of the United States constitution, the state constitution of 1963, or any law of this state — the bill is not an express prohibition. Rather, since no official determination has been made on such constitutionality as of yet, it leaves the decision of constitutionality to discretion. But, the new law does provide legal backing for those sheriffs, law enforcement officers, and other agencies and employees, who refuse to assist the federal government in such activities based on their own constitutional determination.”

Wouldn't Americans rather have a complete ban on unconstitutional behavior from every law enforcement agency?

For those who do not know: 
Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
Court Case
Extending the principle applied in New York, the Court in Printz v. United States 5 held that Congress may not “circumvent” the prohibition on commandeering a state’s regulatory processes “by conscripting the State’s officers directly.” 6 Struck down in Printz were interim provisions of the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act that required state and local law enforcement officers to conduct background checks on prospective handgun purchasers. “The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers . . . to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. It matters not whether policymaking is involved, and no case–by–case weighing of the burdens or benefits is necessary; such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.” 7
If this Michigan law holds, then states can do more to offset the unprecedented and overreaching unconstitutional laws Congress has been passing and the Executive Orders being signed by the President of the United States to act as laws that are not under his constitutional purview, for which he has no power to do.

The tide could turn back to reigning in the out of control federal government and restore rights and sanity back to this nation.

Hunger Games “Terror” Protest, Drone Restrictions + CIA Torture

Staff Writer, DL Mullan

Protesters that have used Hunger Games images to call attention to environmental destruction are being labelled as “terrorists,” for using the deadly toxin of glitter on their banners, while the Supreme Court has deflected issues of free speech by focusing on property, and the surveillance debate rages on. We also look at the UN resolution to protect people’s online privacy, and the local movement to ban drones in Syracuse and other cities, plus the CIA 6,000 page torture report which is being hidden from the public in this holiday edition of the Buzzsaw news with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace

Let's Hear it One More Time, Joe

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
ICLEI / United Nations / Weather 

Joe Bastardi is chief forecaster at WeatherBELL Analytics, a meteorological consulting firm and he does a wonderful job rewriting T'was the Night before Christmas. It is called: A Visit From 'Saint Joe'.

Here is part of the revised poem by Bastardi.
'Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the news,
There were reports of record cold, so many were confused.
Told global warming is why we should care,
And that the point of no return would soon be here.

The children were bombarded with tales of dread,

While visions of climate disasters were stuck in each little head.

 And mamma in her Prius, and I on my bike,

 To save the planet, got rid of the cars that we like.

Read the rest here. It is worth the time and has become my favorite to recite every December. 

If you believe Global Warming or Climate Change is real (the man-made kinds), please read:  

Paper finds solar activity explains climate change over past 200,000 years 

No Proof of Climatic Change (NOAA 1989)

Of course if you want to cling to your climate change theories so that you can bully your way into cities in order to manipulate City Councils and take control of the City's Planning Commission, you'll need all the falsified data you can get. So you'll have to contact Al Gore or Maurie Strong for that.

While you are at it, why don't you do like Reddit or Robert Brulle does: call people names or ban them from scientific discussion if they do not agree with your point of view.

In the article, Study Reveals Source of ‘Dark Money’ in Climate Change Denial Studies– star “deniers” are scripted performers and this absurdity was claimed by Robert Brulle, who is an environmental sociologist professor at Drexel University, Phil.

“The climate change countermovement has had a real political and ecological impact on the failure of the world to act on the issue of global warming,” said Brulle. “Like a play on Broadway, the countermovement has stars in the spotlight — often prominent contrarian scientists or conservative politicians — but behind the stars is an organizational structure of directors, script writers and producers, in the form of conservative foundations.

As a tax payer, if this professor and his team were allowed IRS documents, I would be calling for an investigation into this matter. I would like to see all the data on where the gods of climate change get their money too...

Also, Professor Brulle? Where is my Dark Money? I've been pointing out the lies, made up facts, and the "sky is falling immature charade" for years now without a penny of support. 

But if you are like Reddit, you don't need no stinking facts. To keep the illusion going with free government grants flowing into cities, which isn't free by the way: it is MY tax money, Reddit falls in line and kicked out anyone who could bring up facts, science, and a cogent argument: Reddit forum bans climate change 'deniers'. 

With our local government taken over by this false paradigmn, what are good citizens fed up with the hypocrisy to do?

Well, it's time to go war. The war of words is over. It's time to get "real."

In your area, you could confront your City Councils, call on them to change, present them with a legal Misprison of Treason, and do what the Bay Area is doing: file a lawsuit.

According to the website:
The Post Sustainability Institute / Democrats Against UN Agenda 21 and Freedom Advocates are launching a legal challenge to PLAN BAY AREA/ONE BAY AREA (click for a pdf of the Plan). This plan is different from other regional plans across the country and we believe that it will be a prototype for your future.

PLAN BAY AREA is an all-encompassing land use and transportation plan that regionalizes all 9 counties and 101 cities of the San Francisco Bay Area by limiting new construction to specific locations (only 4% of the land area) and requiring high density development: more apartments and condos on top of shops. If cities want federal and state transportation dollars they will have to agree to this Sustainable Communities Strategies plan. PLAN BAY AREA is an aggressive implementation of UN Agenda 21's "islands of human habitation."
See California's official Wildlands Map


PLAN BAY AREA violates voter-approved urban growth boundary ordinances. Even though voters all over the Bay Area have voted to determine where their urban growth boundaries should be, PLAN BAY AREA actually nullifies these boundaries by restricting development to very small locations in just some cities. It requires 80% of residential development and 66% of commercial development to squeeze into these small, fully urbanized areas. If you own property, any property whether it’s a house or an office building, outside of the PLAN BAY AREA 4% Priority Development Area you may not be able to add a granny unit, add on to your building, or develop your lot. PLAN BAY AREA is valid for 25 years! Radical building restrictions lasting for over a generation will cripple land value and your ability to start and maintain your business or residential plans. For a pdf of the MAP please click here--orange areas are Priority Development Areas.

PLAN BAY AREA violates both the 5th and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The 5th amendment guarantees property owners the right to just compensation, and the 14th amendment guarantees equal protection.

The only lawsuit which can block the implementation of Plan Bay Area is one that challenges the PLAN itself. Together, Michael Shaw of Freedom Advocates, and Rosa Koire of the Post Sustainability Institute have spearheaded this fight.
It is time to take back our cities, states, and nation from the dubious antics of the United Nations and corrupt politicians.

The War on What? Supreme Court Iffy, Not Christmas- What about Tibet?

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Government / Religion

OMG, there is a War on Christmas! Really...? Where?

Let's give the theory a litmus test. 

Are Christians allowed to worship as they please in their private lives? Yes, they are... Are they allowed to buy and decorate Christmas Trees? Oh, sorry, that's a pagan ritual, but yes, they can if they want to. Well, Christians can kiss under the Mistletoe, right? Yeah and that's pagan too. How about Christmas Presents? Borrowed too, but an effective money maker. What about ol' Saint Nick? You're kidding right? His ritual is pagan too!

The History of Christmas gives a detailed analysis of what Christmas past is really like. Some of it is not too pretty. Most of it is of pagan origin.

Who cares about facts? The celebration continues... year after year. Now some media outlets have determined that an imaginary person has created the War on Christmas to demonize the Christian god, religion and its followers.

Let's take a look at the Constitution for a moment:

Amendment I 
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Also read:

So in light of this evidence, Christmas is not under attack. The Supreme Court is inconsistent with its rulings and gives no guidelines about the tenets of what is and is not considered the establishment of a state religion. So that leaves people and institutions unable to satisfy a lawful standard and now are subject to the inklings of mass hysteria.

In addition, by historical delineation, Christmas is something borrowed and something blue. The day celebrated was picked out to curb the pagans from celebrating the wrong god. The question becomes: are you celebrating Christ Mass or Saturnalia? 
The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival’s observance in his time. In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).
Doesn't the pagan rituals above sound all to familiar for this time of the year? At least their celebration was from December 17th to 25th. Americans have to endure an overabundance of public drunkenness and intoxicated driving from Halloween to the New Year.

There are wars against religion in this world. That is not a lie. However there comes a time when a perspective on the war of anything needs to be established.

Take for instance Tibet and Buddhism. Maybe Christians should realize they are not under attack by the phrase: "Happy Holidays" and understand that they could use their goodwill toward men by actually helping another religion out.

Perhaps it's time to consider: Free Tibet.

Wouldn't that be the Christian thing to do?


Your Heathen Staff Writer/Editor 

Have a great and wonderful Happy Holiday(s) no matter what you decide to celebrate this holiday season.

Federal Reserve Century Marked by Booms, Busts, and Fraud

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
News / Economics

As of December 23rd, 1913, the Federal Reserve was created by an act of Congress. "The House passed the bill 298-60 on the evening of Dec. 22, 1913.3 The Senate began debate the following day at 10am, and passed it 43-25 at 2:30pm.4" Later, "President Wilson signed the Currency Bill into law in an 'enthusiastic' public ceremony on Dec. 23, 1913."

Unfortunately for the American people, the Federal Reserve was created constitutionally. Even though approved by Congress, the Federal Reserve has not been the best policy in regards to our economic and national security.

In the article "On The 100th Anniversary Of The Federal Reserve Here Are 100 Reasons To Shut It Down Forever," the website, The Economic Collapse, outlines how the Federal Reserve has repeatedly failed the United States. 

But as a simple synopsis, the article states:
Since the Federal Reserve was created, there have been 18 recessions or depressions, the value of the U.S. dollar has declined by 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger.  
The question becomes: why is the United States dependent on this private institution instead of making its own currency? Congress is supposed to: 
Article I Section 8
To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;
Why in the world was the Federal Reserve ever created? In light of the Federal Reserve's terrible track record, why is the United States still tied to this private institution?

Many Americans are asking the same question: why? Capitol Hill is remiss to answer.

The United States faces many challenges. We have wars, terrorism, and a police state. All of which could be eliminated by placing the National Security of the United States above the need for foreign banks and bankers. 

Without an endless supply of fiat money that is no more relevant than children's play money produced on the computer and printed out on their parent's desk, the United States would not be able to: create endless wars, invade sovereign nations to seize their natural resources, maintain black operations sites and prisons (like Gitmo) to create terrorists, or give out billion dollar no-bid military contracts.

Nevermind, we just found out why.

CNN, Shill-Journalism, and the Security State

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
News / Propaganda

CNN has outdid itself this time. In a panel, discussing NSA breaches of protocol, decency, and the law, Jake Tapper makes a stunning assessment: "I think the American people, honestly, want security over freedom."

If you are on crack, maybe. In this video, we can see that not only did Jake Tapper of CNN make this statement but the other commentators agree: "Security over Freedom." 

Wow. Some people live in a black hole of their own design. Only uninformed talking heads would agree with this egregious statement. Talk about government propaganda coming out of the mouths of so-called journalists. 

This report isn't news. It is not even responsible. How can these people possibly be still employed? 

Within a few minutes of researching this topic, one can find the Founding Father's commentary about security versus freedom:
"Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin

"Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are a gift from God? Thomas Jefferson

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." Patrick Henry 
"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783

If you read further on the Spirit of America Liberty Quotes page you will also discover the meaning of the Second Amendment and the plight of our Revolutionary War heroes. 

What you see on television is what you deserve unless the People stand up against it:
If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.
Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334 (C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950)
So let good Americans resist CNN, Jake Tapper, and his cronies. It is time to rebel against this type of shill-journalism, take back our airways, and fire those individuals on the air who do not understand the basics of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, or Bill of Rights.

It's time to stop the madness.

The United Nations: Changing Your Attitude for a More Sustainable Future

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Government / Education

The new standards in the educational curriculum, which began decades ago and manifested in No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Common Core, are changing history, facts, and the next generation's attitude about government, rights, and citizenship.

And as a parent, you are not going to like it.

Do you want to know the reason for the attacks on our freedoms, rights, and Constitution? Then look no further than the United Nations' (UNESCO) sustainability religious dogma. It's not just to destroy your city, state with unattainable redistribution standards with lies of social justice and climate change (i.e., global warming scam); it's to decimate the next generation's ability to see right from wrong. 

The educational standards are brainwashing children into believing some horrendous ideas. To the United Nations, education is not about facts but persuading children to believe that facts are irrelevant to the collective. Global citizens need to be supple and pliant to the requirements of global interests, international law, and government control.

Say what?

The United States has become the battle ground against encroaching collectivist indoctrination. This cult believes that: government is in charge of you, your children, and your property. The United Nations model strips away any idea of individual thought or determination. The state controls where you will be in life in this post modern, post capitalist societal framework of do as we say and do as you are told.

Freedom of thought is now a thing of the past. Real critical thinking is an abomination. If you question the collective, then there must be something wrong with your attitude. Re-education, anyone? Because our educational system is full of propaganda from the United Nations at the blessing and drive of our government. 

Why wouldn't a government push for the servitude of its people? This nation was built on the servitude of its government, but the United Nations seeks to reverse that trend by making the willful individualist equated with terrorism. Have you notice how many "lone wolves" it takes to undermine the Second Amendment? How EVERYONE must give up their guns because of one person's evil deed? It makes you think.

Just for starters, some will believe that people who question the hive mentality are conspiracy theorists instead of free thinkers. The attitude adjustment has been going on for years. So let the history lesson begin: 

Go on, watch the video...

Agriculture Coexistence with GMO's, USDA Commentary Period

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Nature / Farming

The USDA has opened up a commentary period for people to send their thoughts and opinions to the government about food production.:
USDA Requests Public Input on ‘Agricultural Coexistence.’

USDA published a request for public comments (FR Vol.78, No. 213, Nov. 4, 2013) on how agricultural coexistence in the United States can be strengthened. Comments will be accepted through January 3, 2014. OSA and other organizations have requested a 60-day extension to this deadline. We will notify you if there is an extension. For now, we need you to comment!

How to comment
Comment online at Regulations.gov.
Send comments via postal mail to: Docket No. APHIS-2013-0047, Regulatory Analysis and Development, PPD, APHIS, Station, 3A-03.8, 4700 River Road Unit 118, Riverdale, MD 20737-1238
This opportunity only lasts until January 3rd, 2014 to let the USDA how you feel about GMO crops contaminating the rest of the food supply through big agriculture's farming practices
Non-GMO agriculture has shouldered the burden of contamination for too long. This is our opportunity to tell USDA that it must use its authority to (1) implement mandatory contamination prevention measures to avoid the problem and protect the organic and non-GMO sector, and (2) ensure shared responsibility for the unwanted spread of GE products, including a fair compensation mechanism that does not further burden those who avoid, and sometimes are harmed by, contamination.
Please read the source material before commenting so there is a cohesive understanding of what is being asked of the public.: Seed Broadcast Blog. Then comment away! 

This procedure is how things are changed. Let's change farming practices for the better and remove GMO's from our food supply.

And that's the Word, First Amendment Protected Speech

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
News / Government

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me!"

As children many of us were given this piece of advice as a shield against bullies and enemies. This advice safeguarded our self identity and esteem. Children may expose the truth, albeit sometimes painful truths, but we always managed to cope because we had these mechanisms of advice.

In all reality, it's not what you say that affects people; it's what you do. If someone says something you do not like then you have an opportunity to oppose them right then and there, or ignore them. It is your choice in what action you take.

See there, saying versus doing?

The great thing about the First Amendment is that it protects our daily speech: conformist rhetoric to controversial religious views to argumentative demagogue. You are covered! 
Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. 
Granted the Supreme Court does not believe yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded and dark movie theater as a First Amendment protection, but we can agree to disagree to make no law "abridging the freedom of speech."

That is unless you are a corporation.

Today if you speak your truth, you are admonished. You can't say this. You can't say that. Why not? Sticks and stones, remember? Words are not going to hurt you, but adults are not using this childhood self-defense mechanism. Instead adults are going for the juggler in response to mere words.

What is even more ridiculous is that we as a nation of adults are allowing corporations to deem what is speakable and what is not. "Hate speech" is another form of censorship. As an adult you can hate all you want as long as your actions do not take away the rights of another person.

Saying words does not keep someone else from expressing themselves, carrying out their lives, or going to work.

Actions do.

So a corporation says: you cannot work unless you stop your free speech! That should be sending a red flag to everyone in the United States. The First Amendment is not there to protect social graces but the social heredox.

In America if you have a difference of opinion or religion or whatever, you can have your freedoms abridged without due process of law. Someone can get suspended or fired from their job.

The next level of this outrage against opinion is happening in the courts. Now if you have a business, not giving service to someone you do not agree with, then you can get your business sued. Can anyone walk in off the streets without a shirt or shoes get service refused and sue the establishment? What happened to an owner's right to refuse service to anyone for any reason? That's gone.

It is beyond ridiculous that the United States has been reduced to a bunch of whiny, insolent, bratty children! People have the right to their opinion. That is what separates us from North Korea and China. So suck it up.

If you do not like someone's opinion, then do not talk to them, buy from them, or serve them. It is really a simple approach to protect people's rights for and against any topic. The adult way to handle the problem is just to agree to disagree.

If no one got harmed, then words are just words. Protected words. Freewill to express those words.


Words offend. Words defend. Words define.

Words should never be regulated by corporations at any time in any way.

And, that's the word.

VDP Resident Letter to City Council Representatives

Writer, Ken Becht
Community Interest / News

This letter was sent via email November 26, 2013* to the City of Phoenix's District 5 Councilmen: Daniel Valenzuela, but this statement is not just for one member of the City Council. Information contained herein needs to be read by all members representing the people of Phoenix, AZ.

Mr. Valenzuela,

I am a resident of Villa de Paz.

First of all, I was NEVER notified by mail of Mr. Walter G. Chomichuk's attempt to buy the VIlla de Paz golf course. Once I did learn of it, I began knocking on doors in our neighborhood and found that every 3rd person had not been notified by mail, either. The statements by Mr. Welker and Lazarus are just not true. Mr. Welker told me in an email that he sent out over 1,000 flyers. When questioned further, he said he did not do it himself and couldn't guarantee that. Mr. Lazarus has vacillated about the number sent out from 1,000 to 1,300 etc. He stated in an email that "ALL the residents of the one square area of Villa de Paz had been notified" which is just not true. He didn't know how many homes were impacted by this attempted purchase, as of the Maryvale Village Planning Committee 12-1 decision in OUR FAVOR, at the Hope Center. We had to advise him of the correct number.

I am a graduate of San Diego State University where I graduated with Honors & Distinction in Political Science in 1975. I spent 4 years in the USAF, held a Top Secret Clearance, volunteered and did one tour in Vietnam (69/70). Every member of my family has served their country. My father was in the 10th Mountain Division in WWII. My oldest brother was in the 82nd Airborne Division. My 2nd oldest was a Marine. My younger brother was in Army Intelligence. I was a Phoenix Police Officer for 8 years. I have written and published two books. I am a licensed Realtor in the state of Arizona and have been, going on 12 years.

Could you please answer the following questions for me.

1. When and where were you FIRST informed that the Villa de Paz golf course was under contract? When did it go under contract and for how much?

2. When did you have your first meeting and/or communication with the applicant and/or his representatives concerning the purchase of this golf course?

3. When did you first learn that Mr. Chomichuk was intending to put 350 homes and develop 200 condominiums on the Villa de Paz golf course? (This golf course HAS BEEN A GOLF COURSE FOR 48 YEARS. A golf course that will be an official HISTORICAL SITE in two years when it turns 50 years old.)

4. When and where were the first small meetings that you had with the community where this issue came up? Who was present at those meetings? Mr. Lazarus? Mr. Welker? Mr. Mattox? Who from your office was present?

5. Why have you not come to any of the officially scheduled meetings where the applicant and the residents of Villa de Paz were both scheduled to make their case? The Mall meeting at 75th Ave & Thomas, October 9th, 2013 and the following scheduled Block Watch meeting.

6. Why did you originally decide to attend a meeting that Mr. Lazarus had scheduled after Mr. Lazarus REFUSED to show up for his scheduled presentation at the Block Watch Meeting 10/10/13? He did not "officially" (by first class mail), notify the Villa de Paz neighborhood. Yet you refused to attend any other earlier meetings sponsored by sanctioned groups? You decided to show up for the applicant's controlled meeting but not the others? Why?

7. Knowing that have now known the desires of the Canadian Investor, Mr. Chomichuk and his team, for quite a long time now, why have you not come out against this? You have known both sides arguments on this issue. You are the City Councilman for District 5, not for Manitoba, Canada. You are the City Councilman for District 5, not Mr. Welker who does not even live in Phoenix. You are not the City Councilman for former Vice Mayor and former District 5 City Councilman Claude Mattox. Mr. Mattox has moved out of Villa de Paz. Mr Mattox bought his home on the Villa de Paz golf course with his wife Sherri Fagan Mattox in 1986. He lived on that golf course for 27 years! Mattox sold his house on August 5, 2013!!!!

The first inklings of the golf course being under contract came out in September but only because a resident learned of it and began to make it known throughout our neighborhood. He began knocking on doors and gathered HUNDREDS of signatures on a petition. I too have gathered more signatures. I too now have HUNDREDS of names, addresses, emails and phone numbers of our friends and neighbors who are OUTRAGED about what is happening. I and we, are gaining more phone numbers, addresses, and emails everyday.( We are also getting people from outside Villa de Paz to help us and join our fight.) They are asking WHY you are not out there protecting them. They are asking how come you have not LED this fight to save the golf course. They are asking how come you aren't trying to stop the introduction of 1,100 more cars in a one mile square neighborhood? They are asking how come you ostensibly don't care about the HUGE losses they will take on their homes. Many of these folks have all their money in their homes.

8. They are asking why you are not supporting the folks that helped get you elected. Everyone knows what the developer wants to do to our community. They have said unless they can build out 350 homes with many 2 story up to 30 feet tall on this golf course, they will pull out. There is no compromise. This is a golf course. It has been a golf course for 48years. The buyer knew when he bought it he had to keep it a golf course. It must be sold as a golf course. No one is against private property rights but his agreement when he bought it was it was a golf course. When they built it they built it as a golf course, not a subdivision. Build around it as you may but you can't destroy the golf course because you are allegedly losing money. I say allegedly because no proof has been presented to validate their claims. Most businesses lose money over the first few years. We have a responsible source that says they in fact made money for 5 years. Regardless, they bought it as a golf course and need to sell it as a golf course. I in fact have a VERY INTERESTED party interested in buying the golf course and keeping it a golf course.

9. They are asking why you are ostensibly supporting a Canadian Investor, who per the Manitoba Securities Commission of Canada has plead GUILTY to two charges of their Securities Act. (You can pull this information on the Manitoba Security Commission website. It is public information)

He was selling securities without a license: "acting as a salesman of or on behalf of Worldwide Golf Resources in connection with trading securities".....

He was: "trading in securities of Worldwide Golf Resources Inc in the course of a primary distribution to the public before receipt for both a preliminary prospectus and prospectus had been obtained from the Director of the Manitoba Securities Commission contrary to section 37(1) of the Act."

I have emails and have had personal conversations with the Senior Chief Investigator of the Manitoba Securities Commission. He has told me that unlike our clearly defined differences between civil and criminal law, Mr. Chomichuk "could have gone to jail" on these charges. Mr. Chomichuk plead guilty and paid two separate $5,000.00 fines, one for each charge.

10. Were you ever told about Mr. Chomichuk's pleadings of guilty to Manitoba Security Act charges?

I am asking you, as a resident of Villa de Paz, to JUST DO THE RIGHT THING and make a public statement that you officially support the residents of Villa de Paz. I have personally talked to elderly folks at their door that were weeping over this. Some have lived here for over 40 years. They moved here like all of us because of the special OASIS that is Villa de Paz. The golf course winds throughout this community and positively effects ALL that live here, not just those on the golf course. They all bought here because of that fact. People have recently put in thousands of dollars into their homes right before they learned of this foreign investor seeking to destroy a community. A community that you represent. How can you not be outraged? Where is your passion for these fine people whose lives will be forever ruined. Their quality of life will be wiped out. Their home values will plummet. I know that as a Realtor. This is a THEFT of your constituents life savings. None of these people will be compensated by this foreign investor for their losses....not one red cent.

The Wildlife will be destroyed. The Canadian Geese that fly in V formation are protected under the Migratory Bird Act of 1918. You should have already learned about that but if not I will happily give you that information. We also have HAWKS, TURTLES & many other species that nest and live on this golf course that impact everyone in this community. They too will be gone. And all this for what? So a multi-millionaire foreign developer can make millions off the backs of hard working American citizens and tax payers of Villa de Paz.

This is not about generating some tax revenue from 350 houses and 200 condominiums. This is EXPLOITATION of our neighbors and your constituents by Walter G. Chomichuk. Mr. Chomichuk just happens to be director and or partner of numerous LLPs & LLCs. One of which is an HOA company. They have said that the 350 homes will in fact have an HOA. The 200 Condominiums will also have an HOA. And who do you think will control that. At $100.00 a month for 550 homes is $55,000.00 a month or $650,000.00 a year. He also is involved with a Street Maintenance Company interestingly enough.

The fact there will be 1,100 more vehicles in a one mile square neighborhood called Villa de Paz alone should make you come out against this destruction of a neighborhood and a community. As a former police officer who has arrested men for rape, this is exactly is what is going on here....the rape of Villa de Paz! Good people don't stand by idly and let that happen.

This has been a golf course for 48 years. It was not built as a subdivision but a golf course. That was the original intent as is verified by all the marketing material available along with the Master Plan for Villa de Paz. The owner bought the course knowing this was to be a golf course and to remain a golf course. Their statements they are losing money is not backed up by any evidence. Most all businesses lose money the first few years. They have lied before so why are we to accept this as fact. We have responsible inside people that have stated this course didn't lose money for years while they were there. THIS WAS BUILT AS A GOLF COURSE & not a SUBDIVISION.

There are 1,445 people here that will remember if you step up and support them or if you don't support them. You talked about families, community and neighborhood in your campaign. Your chief of staff and others speaking for you in your office have told many of us that if you learned that the residents of Villa de Paz don't want this to happen to them you would be out front and support them, as you well should. Well, it is clear the residents don't want this. There were over 250 people at the Hope Center where the Maryvale Planning Commission Committee voted 12-1 in our favor. We filled the PHO hearing at the City Council and that was on a Wednesday at 10am when most people have to work. This is not about sticking a finger in the wind to see which way the wind blows. You represent the CITIZENS of DISTRICT 5 and VILLA de PAZ and should be leading this fight. To lay back and posture that you don't want to "influence the process?" Your job representing the people of District 5 & Villa de Paz is to "influence" the process for your constituents.

YOUR CONSTITUENTS don't want this! Let us know you have our back! You told us you are going to run for Council again in two years. 1445 people will not forget how you are dealing with this Mr. Valenzuela. You need to do the RIGHT THING and LEAD! If you do that, you will have this neighborhood and a VITAL, POLITICALLY ACTIVE community behind you...If not? The people out here are strong unit, please understand that. They will not forget that a foreign investor with guilty pleadings in the Manitoba Securities Commission, ripped out the HEART & SOULS of thousands of people who not only live here but enjoy playing the Villa de Paz golf course.

We are asking you to NOW make a public statement that you support us. We are waiting, watching and are expecting you to DO THE RIGHT THING.

*As of this publication, Mr. Daniel Valenzuela has neither responded to this letter nor made any public statement supporting the residents of Villa de Paz against a foreign developer.

New Menu Link: Help Save VDP Golf Course

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Community Interest

If you have not kept up on the VDP Gazette's latest news, or our popular articles, then you would not know that Villa de Paz is under attack.

Some developer out of Canada wants to fill our green, wildlife refuge, and 40 year old community golf course with houses.

You read that right: Cookie-Cutter Houses in lieu of Environmental Green Space.

Part of the stipulations put into place by the City of Phoenix during our Annexation in the 1990's were removed. These stipulations were to safeguard our community from just this type of hostile take over. Instead the City removed these zoning regulations without the residents of Villa de Paz's knowledge.

We have two community associates that were viable and available at the time of the initial move to take away these stipulations but these entities were never contacted either. Which leaves many questions as to why the stipulations were removed in the first place and if there has been gross misconduct by the developers, lawyers, and the city itself.

In all reality if a community approved stripping their own stipulations for a new development, wouldn't there have been a group of representatives from Villa de Paz at the City Council meetings? You see our point. 

Villa de Paz wants your help to fight the influx of developments in the West Valley because politicians and developers do not consider the real needs of the community only the lining of their pocketbooks. 

To garner more support, Villa de Paz Gazette has added a menu link that goes straight to the SAVE Villa de Paz Facebook page. 

Join our fight today! 

Get together. Get mobilized. Get answers!

Mutiny on the Congress

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
News / Government

Congress is tired of its deplorable success rate. So Republican lawmakers have devised a plan to set the record straight. Is this sign an omen for what's to come? Is Congress going to balance an already imbalanced, out of control, unapologetic federal government?

Here is the plan:
The "legal action against the President" would be, according to an aide for Rep. Rice, "for ignoring Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution." Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution states,

He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

"CIVIL ACTION.—The House of Representatives shall bring a civil action in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge any of the following policies or actions:
(1) The policy of the Department of Health and Human Services that, with respect to health insurance coverage that is renewed for a policy year during the period beginning January 1, 2014, and ending October 1, 2014, health insurance issuers may continue to offer coverage that would otherwise be terminated or cancelled for being out of compliance with various requirements of title XXVII of the Public Health Service Act and corresponding portions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as announced by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services on November 14, 2013.
(2) The 1-year delay in the application of the reporting requirements of sections 6055 and 6056 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (and related requirements of section 4980H of such Code), as provided under Department of the Treasury Notice 2013–45, as announced by the Department of the Treasury on July 2, 2013.
(3) The policy of the Department of Homeland Security to exercise prosecutorial discretion with respect to individuals who came to the United States as children, as announced by the Department of Homeland Security on June 15, 2012.
(4) The authorization, approval, renewal, modification, or extension of any experimental, pilot, or demonstration project under section 1115 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1315) that waives compliance with a requirement of section 407 of such Act (42 U.S.C. 607) through a waiver of section 402 of such Act (42 U.S.C. 602).
The cosignees are as follows: 
29 members of Congress are co-sponsoring Rice's Resolution: Bachmann (MN-06), Bridenstine (OK-01), Chaffetz (UT-03), J. Duncan (SC-03), DeSantis (FL-06), Franks (AZ-08), Gowdy (SC-04), Harris (MD-01), Lamborn (CO-05), LaMalfa (CA-01), Marino (PA-10), McClintock (CA-04), Meadows (NC-11), Nunnelee (MS-01), Pittenger (NC-09), Posey (FL-08), Tom Price (GA-06), Ribble (WI-08), Salmon (AZ-05), Sanford (SC-01), Schweikert (AZ-06), Stewart (UT-02), Stockman (TX-36), Walberg (MI-07), Weber (TX-14), Wenstrup (OH-02), Williams (TX-25), Joe Wilson (SC-02), and Yoho FL-03.
However is this action plan too late? Or is this pomp and circumstance? Just a way to use media and grandstanding to your favor?

Our government including the legislative branch works outside the boundaries of the Constitution. Nearly every politician has committed treason against the American people by "levying war against them" by signing away our sovereignty to foreign entities through agreements and treaties (et al). As well as "in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort," the American government has given monetary and military assistance to "Al-qaeda" and other terrorist organizations abroad.

The only way anyone in Washington D.C. can begin to repair the damage of the last fifty years is to return to American values. Not the pseudo pacifistic religious cult-like circus atmosphere we have had to endure but to follow the Constitution and stop selling out our freedoms to a corrupt corporate and megarich elite class who want to rule with an iron curtain and fist. 

America is about freedom for all. It's about living by a constructed set of laws. It's about defending the defenseless against aggressors.

When are we going to get back to honoring ourselves and respecting others? Before or after impeaching the President of the United States?

While you are at it Congress, impeach yourselves for equal guilt. For you as well have forgotten:
This nation was founded by many men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.
John F. Kennedy, Radio and television report to the American people in civil rights, June 11, 1963
