Thanks for giving us your time today, Dean. What is your connection with Dr. Clarkson and the Patriot Network?

Robert and I have been personal friends for almost 30 years. We share a deep, abiding, and genuine love of the Constitution of the united States. Over the years one of the things that's deepened our friendship is the fact that we're both Vietnam vets I was always impressed by his willingness to serve others, whether he's helping a patriot to defend himself against a bureaucracy or serving as an officer in combat years ago. We both recognize that over these 30 years the country's been moving in the wrong direction and that there are evil people and institutions that cause these things to happen.

Among all the freedom organizations out there, what do you like in particular about the Patriot Network?

What I see as the great strength of the Patriot Network is that Robert and the other leaders bring many years of practical experience and practical knowledge of how the bureaucracy works, the IRS's methods and enforcement thresholds, their records system, and this kind of wealth of information is just not available from the average, run-of-the-mill attorney or CPA. And for the patriot to acquire that kind of in-depth knowledge on his own without being part of an organization or network, he would have to do what Robert Clarkson did from scratch.

        Another of the PN's strengths is it brings diverse individuals from outside its own immediate membership and present what is the country's most comprehensive series of educational seminars plus books, tapes and other materials from a large, boundless field of expertise.

When did you first become active in the freedom movement?

Probably when I was about 13 years old I volunteered in Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign. I met an elderly lady who was about 87. Her name was Matha Innocenti. She started providing me with information about history and economics -- John Birch type stuff -- and introduced me to the Liberty Letter, which I subscribed to in junior high school. It was a predecessor to the Spotlight. I went from there to being youth chairman for George Wallace in his campaign for president in 1968.

        Four years in the army, including tours of duty in Korea and Vietnam, convinced me that my government did not always tell the truth and did not always do the right thing. So I came home from war disillusioned and angry.

What happened next?

        I continued my involvement in politics -- held various offices, Republican Party precinct chairman. I joined the John Birch Society (JBS) while in the army, dabbled with it for about 10 years and came to the conclusion that all the people in the JBS were fine and honest and of the highest integrity, and that all the literature they put out was well-documented and truthful. But after 10 years there was a parallel to my experience in the army; I got frustrated that they didn't have any real action programs to take all this knowledge and do something to correct the problems they had identified so well. So once more I'm searching for a way to be involved with effective activities that would really solve problems and make the country a better place.

Where did you go from the JBS?

I didn't actually quit them till about 1979. But an important thing happened in 1973. I was managing a political campaign for a friend running for Texas legislature, and I was invited to attend a tax freedom seminar. At first I didn't see the point -- thought it was for fat cats and rich people -- but also thought it would be full of freedom loving people. The only intention I had was passing out literature to these people. The speakers were a couple of fellows named Bill Drexler and Marvin Cooley. I don't really remember much of what Drexler said; I know Cooley was the main speaker and was certainly more impressive. He was talking about the Constitution of the United States. I don't know if I hadn't paid enough attention when growing up and hearing it in school or whether Cooley explained it better than my teachers, but he started talking and he just riveted every one's attention in the room. He clearly pointed out how the Constitution, article after article, and the Bill of Rights were limitations on the power of the government. And he clearly explained the relationship between limiting the power of government and protecting the rights of the people.


“Robert and the other leaders bring many years of practical experience and practical knowledge of how the bureaucracy works, the IRS's methods and enforcement thresholds, their records system, and this kind of wealth of information is just not available from the average, run-of-the-mill attorney or CPA.”

        He spoke extensively about the provisions in the Constitution on money and taxes, and Nelson, you have to remember in 1973, silver certificates had been redeemed for silver as late as '68, Nixon had not yet taken us off the gold standard, and only eight years earlier, silver coins had circulated as money. Your younger readers may not remember a time when gold and silver were in circulation, but we do -- and it was very fresh in our minds as Cooley talked. When he talked about taxation, he talked about the Constitutional provisions and key supreme court cases on tax law. Marvin Cooley did something that really impressed me. He said, and I'm paraphrasing, that what he wanted us to do was to study the Constitution and the cases, read the original documents and learn for ourselves what the documents said and what our rights were. He said when you do that you will find that many popular ideas about taxpaying and banking are completely wrong.

        I spent the last 31 years doing exactly what Cooley said. Here's why Robert and I became instant friends because I've met others through the years who were also intensively studying those things, and Robert is one of those people.

You currently work as an advisor in asset protection and tax planning for small business owners. Do you care to share with us any of the basics of these fields?

What I've learned over the years is that the manner in which a business is structured, that is the kind of business entity and the manner in which assets are held, will have a great impact on asset protection. Also, there are strategies and philosophies we employ in putting theses structures together. The society we live in today is very litigious. For small business owners and high net worth individuals, the threat of lawsuits is a greater risk to their wealth and liberty than the tax collector in many cases. So we use strategies likes separating things that are high value from things that are high risk.

        I'm a member of the International Association for Financial Planning (IAFP) and of the International Fiscal Association. And I was an advisor to the government of Dominica [a country in the West Indies -- ed.] for a couple of years.

How did that come about?

Traveling a lot in the Caribbean to do the other things we discussed, I got to know people in the business community down there who introduced me to the minister of Finance, the Honorable Ambrose George. We became personal friends and I advised him for a couple of years.

I understand you've written some books?

A couple. Freedom 2000 has to do with offshore finance primarily. It has a few dissertations on economics and government, etc., but it's mainly about the uses of offshore corporations, trusts, foundations for asset protection and tax reduction.

Years ago I wrote Tax Revolt, which dealt with Constitutional provisions relating to relating to taxes and money and whether wage earners were required to pay income taxes.

You, Robert and I have collaborated on a organizing a number of flag rallies and other events for the Southern cause. What do you see as our top priority there at the moment?

For the last decade Robert's been very involved in social issues including saving Southern heritage. And he's been able to bring people together from different backgrounds and get them to work together in a common cause. Now we are up against ex-governor David Beasley [a scalawag who started the SC war on the Confederate flag], who is running for US Senate and has been totally dishonest with the public. Defeating him is a top priority. In my opinion Mr. Beasley has every right to run for U.S. Senate, but if he is an honest person he should at least have the decency to run as a Democrat in Massachusetts!

Skull and Bones Party fields two for same office

CBS/60 Minutes admits secret society birthed both Bush and Kerry

Skull and Bones building

(CBS) As opposite as George Bush and John Kerry may seem to be, they do share a common secret -- one they've shared for decades, and one they will not share with the electorate.
        The secret: details of their membership in Skull and Bones, the

elite Yale University society whose members include some of the most powerful men of the 20th century.
        Bonesmen, as they're called, are forbidden to reveal what goes on in their inner sanctum, the windowless building on the Yale campus that is called the Tomb.

        When 60 Minutes first reported on Skull & Bones last October, conspiracy theorists, who see Skull and Bones behind just about everything that goes wrong, and even right, in the world, were relishing the unthinkable -- the possibility of two Bonesmen fighting it out for the presidency.
        Over the years, Bones has included presidents, cabinet officers, spies, Supreme Court justices, captains of industry -- often their sons and lately their daughters, a social and political network like no other.
        And to a man or woman, they'd responded to questions with utter silence until an enterprising Yale graduate, Alexandra Robbins, managed to penetrate the wall of silence in her book, “Secrets of the Tomb,” reports CBS News Correspondent Morley Safer.

        "I spoke with about 100 members of Skull and Bones and they were members who were tired of the secrecy, and that's why they were willing to talk to me,” says Robbins. “But probably twice that number hung up on me, harassed me, or threatened me.”

        Secret or not, Skull and Bones is as essential to Yale as the Whiffenpoofs, the tables down at a pub called Mory's, and the Yale mascot - that ever-slobbering bulldog.
        Skull and Bones, with all its ritual and macabre relics, was founded in 1832 as a new world version of secret student societies that were common in Germany at the time. Since then, it has chosen or "tapped" only 15 senior students a year who become patriarchs when they graduate -- lifetime members of the ultimate old boys' club.
        “Skull and Bones is so tiny. That's what makes this staggering,” says Robbins. “There are only 15 people a year, which means there are about 800 living members at any one time.”
        But a lot of Bonesmen have gone on to positions of great power, which Robbins says is the main purpose of this secret society: to get as many members as possible into positions of power.
        “They do have many individuals in influential positions,” says Robbins. “And that's why this is something that we need to know about.”
        President Bush has tapped five fellow Bonesmen to join his administration. Most recently, he selected William Donaldson, Skull and Bones 1953, the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Like the President, he's taken the Bones oath of silence.

        Ron Rosenbaum, author and columnist for the New York Observer, has become obsessed with cracking that code of secrecy.
        “I think there is a deep and legitimate distrust in America for power and privilege that are cloaked in secrecy. It's not supposed to be the way we do things,” says Rosenbaum. “We're supposed to do things out in the open in America. And so that any society or institution that hints that there is something hidden is, I think, a legitimate subject for investigation.”
        His investigation is a 30-year obsession dating back to his days as a Yale classmate of George W. Bush. Rosenbaum, a self-described undergraduate nerd, was certainly not a contender for Bones. But he was fascinated by its weirdness.
        “It's this sepulchral, tomblike, windowless, granite, sandstone bulk that you can't miss. And I lived next to it,” says Rosenbaum. “I had passed it all the time. And during the initiation rites, you could hear strange cries and whispers coming from the Skull and Bones tomb.”
        Despite a lifetime of attempts to get inside, the best Rosenbaum could do was hide out on the ledge of a nearby building a few years ago to videotape a nocturnal initiation ceremony in the Tomb's courtyard.
        “A woman holds a knife and pretends to slash the throat of another person lying down before them, and there's screaming and yelling at the neophytes,” he says.

        Robbins says the cast of the initiation ritual is right out of Harry Potter meets Dracula: “There is a devil, a Don Quixote and a Pope who has one foot sheathed in a white monogrammed slipper resting on a stone skull. The initiates are led into the room one at a time. And once an initiate is inside, the Bonesmen shriek at him. Finally, the Bonesman is shoved to his knees in front of Don Quixote as the shrieking crowd falls silent. And Don Quixote lifts his sword and taps the Bonesman on his left shoulder and says, ‘By order of our order, I dub thee knight of Euloga.’"
        It’s a lot of mumbo-jumbo, says Robbins, but it means a lot to the people who are in it.

        “Prescott Bush, George W's grandfather, and a band of Bonesmen, robbed the grave of Geronimo, took the skull and some personal relics of the Apache chief and brought them back to the tomb,” says Robbins. “There is still a glass case, Bonesmen tell me, within the tomb that displays a skull that they all refer to as Geronimo.”
        “The preoccupation with bones, mortality, with coffins, lying in coffins, standing around coffins, all this sort of thing I think is designed to give them the sense that, and it's very true, life is short,” says Rosenbaum. “You can spend it, if you have a privileged background, enjoying yourself, contributing nothing, or you can spend it making a contribution.”


President Bush has tapped five fellow Bonesmen to join his administration. Most recently, he selected William Donaldson, Skull and Bones 1953, the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Like the President, he's taken the Bones oath of silence.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~        And plenty of Bonesmen have made a contribution, from William Howard Taft, the 27th President; Henry Luce, the founder of Time Magazine; and W. Averell Harriman, the diplomat and confidant of U.S. presidents.
        “What's important about the undergraduate years of Skull and Bones, as opposed to fraternities, is that it imbues them with a kind of mission for moral leadership,” says Rosenbaum. “And it's something that they may ignore for 30 years of their life, as George W. Bush seemed to successfully ignore it for quite a long time. But he came back to it.”
        Mr. Bush, like his father and grandfather before him, has refused to talk openly about Skull and Bones. But as a Bonesman, he was required to reveal his innermost secrets to his fellow Bones initiates. “They're supposed to recount their entire sexual histories in sort of a dim, a dimly-lit cozy room. The other 14 members are sitting on plush couches, and the lights are dimmed,” says Robbins. “And there's a fire roaring. And this activity is supposed to last anywhere from between one to three hours.”

        What’s the point of this?
        ”I believe the point of the year in the tomb is to forge such a strong bond between these 15 new members that after they graduate, for them to betray Skull and Bones would mean they'd have to betray their 14 closest friends,” says Robbins.
        One can't help but make certain comparisons with the mafia -- secret society, bonding. Stakes may be a little higher in one than the other. But everybody knows everything about everybody, which is a form of protection.
        “I think Skull and Bones has had slightly more success than the mafia in the sense that the leaders of the five families are all doing 100 years in jail, and the leaders of the Skull and Bones families are doing four and eight years in the White House,” says Rosenbaum.
        Bones is not restricted to the Republican Party. Yet another Bonesman has his eye on the Oval Office: Senator John Kerry, Democrat, Skull & Bones 1966.
        “It is fascinating isn't it? I mean, again, all the people say, ‘Oh, these societies don't matter. The Eastern Establishment is in decline.’ And you could not find two more quintessential Eastern establishment, privileged guys,” says Rosenbaum. “I remember when I was a nerdy scholarship student in the reserve book room at at the Yale Library, and John Kerry, who at that point styled himself ‘John F. Kerry’ would walk in.”


“And to me, to be in one of these organizations, you have to have an incredibly high tolerance for tedium 'cause you're sittin' around talking, talking, and talking. You're not running the world, you're just gassing.”

        “There was always a little buzz,” adds Rosenbaum. “Because even then he was seen to be destined for higher things. He was head of the Yale Political Union, and a tap for Skull and Bones was seen as the natural sequel to that.”
        David Brooks, a conservative commentator who has published a book on the social dynamics of the upwardly mobile, says that while Skull & Bones may be elite and secret, it's anything but exciting.
        “My view of secret societies is they're like the first class cabin in airplanes. They're really impressive until you get into them, and then once you're there they're a little dull. So you hear all these conspiracy theories about Skull and Bones,” says Brooks.
        “And to me, to be in one of these organizations, you have to have an incredibly high tolerance for tedium 'cause you're sittin' around talking, talking, and talking. You're not running the world, you're just gassing.”
        Gassing or not, the best-connected white man's club in America has moved reluctantly into the 21st Century.
        “Skull and Bones narrowly endorsed admitting women,” says Robbins. “The day before these women were supposed to be initiated, a group of Bonesmen, including William F. Buckley, obtained a court order to block the initiation claiming that letting women into the tomb would lead to date rape. Again more legal wrangling; finally it came down to another vote and women were admitted and initiated.”
        But Skull & Bones now has women, and it’s become more multicultural.
        “It has gays who got the SAT scores, it's got the gays who got the straight A's,” says Brooks. “It's got the blacks who are the president of the right associations. It's different criteria. More multicultural, but it's still an elite, selective institution.”
        On balance, it may be bizarre, but on a certain perspective, does it provide something of value?
        “You take these young strivers, you put them in this weird castle. They spill their guts with each other, fine. But they learn something beyond themselves. They learn a commitment to each other, they learn a commitment to the community,” says Brooks. “And maybe they inherit some of those old ideals of public service that are missing in a lot of other parts of the country.”
        And is that relationship, in some cases, stronger than family or faith?
        “Absolutely,” says Robbins. “You know, they say, they say the motto at Yale is, ‘For God, for country, and for Yale.’ At Bones, I would think it's ‘For Bones.



Patriot Cannon Guest Editor receives coveted SPLC award

Clarkson gets honorable mention  ;-)

Finally, the world’s most bodacious bureau of self-appointed thought police have caught up with the nest of patriotic firebrands emblemized by the publisher and editor of this newsletter! Yes, it was in the merry month of May, 2004, that the (heh heh) Southern (HAHAHA) Poverty (LOL, ROTF!) Law (sniggle chortle GUFFAW!!!!!) Center saw fit to post an “exposé” of our activities and those of numerous Andersonians far less dangerous to liberal myths, lies and DTs!

        The piece is entitled “Attack of the CAVE People.” CAVE means Citizens Against Virtually Everything in the words of our ultraliberal county administrator Joey Preston, who is head of a county council that breaks all records for “drunken sailor” levels of spending. Yes, we’re against almost everything this crowd does . . . but unlike them and the $PLC, we have the Bible, the Constitution and common sense on our side!

        The only problem with the article is that it bears the tiny modicum of accuracy needed to get by without being laughed right off the internet. But /\/.\/\/. and others got on the case immediately, setting the record straight with gusto. Even one of the deeply resented County Council members got on a local talk show to sound off at the $PLC for working with local stooges of liberalism to defame this county!

Search “Attack of the CAVE People” if you want to see just how far this outfit will go in smearing hard-working, genuinely patriotic people . . . and then contact the Patriot Cannon guest editor ( for his 11-page refutation.

The Fed Is Lifeblood to the Root of Evil

by Alexander “Ace” Baker

Central banking is perhaps the most brilliant scam ever perpetrated, and the U.S. Federal Reserve stands as the most successful of all central banks in history. The Fed is able to transfer wealth away from the people who earned it, and into the hands of the Federal Government and member banks, relentlessly, stealthily, year after year, and all the while maintaining the preposterous claim of social benefit in the form of “managing the economy.” The method of this theft is sophisticated and disguised enough as to escape the attention of most, and when combined with propaganda, leads most people to the conclusion that we’d be in trouble without it.

        Yet I wish to show here that central banking can be well understood by most people for exactly what it is – the fraudulent theft of trillions of dollars via the monopolization of money. In a companion article, “The Origin of Money, and How It Was Stolen from You,” I will show that the usual justifications given for central banking are dubious.

        Central banking makes possible the expansion of government power in all forms, most particularly the wicked godfather of all government programs: war. Without central banking, it is doubtful that any of the great wars of the 20th century, or the current debacle in Iraq, would have ever taken place, certainly not on the scale we have seen.

        Kings and Presidents are an ambitious lot. They have long lusted to expand their power and prestige through military conquest and imperialism. But war is very costly, and since government does not produce anything, it must always extract wealth from its productive citizens. Citizens hate this. Raise taxes too high, and they might revolt.

        Bankers are an ambitious lot as well. They have long lusted to enrich themselves through the expansion of bank credit (again see “The Origin of Money, and How It Was Stolen from You”). This practice, known as “Fractional Reserve Banking,” works pretty well until too many bank customers begin to smell a rat, and all demand their money at the same time. Expand credit too much, and people will make a run on the bank. This could lead to unpleasantries visited upon bankers.

        Central banking is the stroke of evil genius that simultaneously solves the dilemmas of both the King and the Banker. The king gets an almost unlimited supply of financing for his war, and the banker gets the almost unlimited ability to expand credit without fear of a bank run. It is an unholy marriage consummated in the very depths of hell.

        Every major industrialized nation has a central bank now. With the possible exception of the Napoleonic wars, every major war in modern times has been financed through central banking, on all sides. It is not a coincidence that the U.S. stayed out of foreign wars until the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, whereupon Woodrow Wilson broke his re-election campaign promise and plunged us headfirst into World War I?

        How does it work? How does the creation of new money work to take wealth away from those who earned it and give to others?

        The first thing to remember is this: Wealth is not money, and money is not wealth. Real wealth consists of real stuff – houses, cars, food, clothing, etc. Money is simply a medium of exchange. Money is tremendously important, for without it we would be reduced to direct barter, which would present enough problems to prevent mankind from progressing beyond simple agriculture. But ultimately it is not the money we are after, it’s the stuff. If you were stranded on a desert island, little pieces of paper with portraits of dead presidents wouldn’t do you any good.

        Suppose you had a printing press in your bedroom and you could create counterfeit $100 bills that were so realistic that not even a bank manager could tell they were bogus. And let’s say that you cranked out a cool $1,000,000. You haven’t built a house, or grown food, or made any clothes, or anything else that people actually need. So while you have created new and additional money, you have not created any new and additional wealth. The total amount of real wealth in the world is exactly the same as before you printed the money.

        Now let’s say you take the million bucks and buy yourself a nice little condo at the beach. At this point you have certainly increased your own personal wealth dramatically. Yet since there is no more wealth in total, then logically somebody, somewhere must be poorer as a result. But who? The guy you bought the condo from is O.K., he’s happy with the $1,000,000 which he can turn around and spend on something new for himself.

        At first glance it might appear that no one was hurt by your counterfeiting scheme. But this is not true. Because there is now more money being spent on the same amount of goods and services, the prices of those goods and services must go up. Which is another way of saying that every dollar is worth less now than it was before. Prices don’t go up all at the same time, of course. Instead, price increases ripple through the economy in waves, affecting some people sooner than others. This is key to understanding who benefits and who is hurt by the creation of new money. The early receivers of the new money benefit, because they have a chance to spend it before prices go up. The late receivers of the new money get screwed. By the time they get their hands on the new money, it’s too late, prices have already increased.


Besides being an inherent fraud and theft, bank credit expansion is the best explanation for the dreaded “business cycle,” the alternating periods of boom and bust we have experienced since around 1750, when fractional reserve banking first became widespread.


        In the real world of central banking, the chief beneficiaries of the creation of new money are:

~The federal government itself

~The commercial banks

~Government contractors

        The creation of new money “out of thin air” takes many forms. One of the most common is that the Federal Reserve prints up pieces of paper called “Federal Reserve Notes” while the Treasury Department prints up pieces of paper called “Government Bonds.” The Fed then “buys” the bonds with the new money, which the government then spends on whatever strikes its fancy, usually guns and missiles and warheads and submarines and jets and satellites. But use your imagination. It could be anything. $500 toilet seat? No problem! These wonderful things use resources that could have otherwise been put to different uses, and this lowers our standard of living. You have less stuff than you would have had if the government had not created any new money. How much less? The loss to our economy is truly incalculable, but I don’t think it is unreasonable to guess that living standards would easily be double what they are now, if not for central banking.

        Money creation can also take the form of bank credit expansion. Besides being an inherent fraud and theft, bank credit expansion is the best explanation for the dreaded “business cycle,” the alternating periods of boom and bust we have experienced since around 1750, when fractional reserve banking first became widespread.

        As you might guess, many very creative and complicated techniques have been devised for expanding the money supply, it isn’t necessary to go into that here. The thing to keep in mind is that new money can be created, and that this is a powerful and devious method of wealth redistribution. This also explains why governments long wished to eradicate the gold standard, which had evolved over centuries on the free market. Digging gold out of the ground takes work, and is self-limiting. Gold mining, in a free market, ends up being no more profitable than any other business. Printing paper money or changing numbers in a computer file is essentially costless, and therefore unlimited.

I would also like to point out that most of the great empires in history collapsed, at least in part, because of the continued dilution and devaluation of government money. Money became worthless, and so the division of labor, which depends on money and which is the cause of prosperity, becomes impossible. The people have no choice but to revert to a subsistence economy.

If we want to strike at the root of evil, we must look long and hard at the practice of central banking. If we do, I think we will discover that central banking is the very lifeblood to the root.

Ordering a Pizza in 2008

Operator: "Thank you for calling Pizza Hut. May I have your..."

Customer: "Hi, I'd like to order... "

Operator: "May I have your NIDN first, sir?"

Customer: "My National ID Number, yeah, hold on, eh, it's 6102049998-45-54610."

Operator: "Thank you, Mr. Sheehan. I see you live at 1742 Meadowland Drive, and the phone number's 494-2366. Your office number over at Lincoln Insurance is 745-2302 and your cell number's 266-2566. Which number are you calling from, sir?"

Customer: "Huh? I'm at home. Where d'ya get all this information?"

Operator: "We're wired into the system, sir."

Customer: (Sighs) "Oh, well, I'd like to order a couple of your All-Meat Special pizzas..."

Operator: "I don't think that's a good idea, sir."

Customer: "Whaddya mean?"

Operator: "Sir, your medical records indicate that you've got very high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol. Your National Health Care provider won't allow such an unhealthy choice."

Customer: "D---. What do you recommend, then?"

Operator: "You might try our low-fat Soybean Yogurt Pizza. I'm sure you'll like it."

Customer: "What makes you think I'd like something like that?"

Operator: "Well, you checked out 'Gourmet Soybean Recipes' from your local library last week, sir. That's why I made the suggestion."

Customer: "All right, all right. Give me two family-sized ones, then. What's the damage?"

Operator: "That should be plenty for you, your wife and your four kids, sir. The 'damage,' as you put it, heh, heh, comes $49.99."

Customer: "Lemme give you my credit card number."

Operator: "I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid you'll have to pay in cash. Your credit card balance is over its limit."

Customer: "I'll run over to the ATM and get some cash before your driver gets here."

Operator: "That won't work either, sir. Your checking account's overdrawn."

Customer: "Never mind. Just send the pizzas. I'll have the cash ready. How long will it take?"

Operator: "We're running a little behind, sir. It'll be about 45 minutes, sir. If you're in a hurry you might want to pick 'em up while you're out getting the cash, but carrying pizzas on a motorcycle can be a little awkward."

Customer: "How the hell do you know I'm riding a bike?"

Operator: "It says here you're in arrears on your car payments, so your car got repo'ed. But your Harley's paid up, so I just assumed that you'd be using it."

Customer: "@#%/$@&?#!&?#!"

Operator: "I'd advise watching your language, sir. You've already got a July 2006 conviction for cussing out a cop."

Customer: (Speechless)

Operator: "Will there be anything else, sir?"

Customer: "No, nothing. oh, yeah, don't forget the two free liters of Coke your ad says I get with the pizzas."

Operator: "I'm sorry sir, but our ad's exclusionary clause prevents us from offering free soda to diabetics.


The Law of Moses

Mugshot of Gene Chapman

Gene Chapman, Minister of Christ

The writer of this feature wears a Gandhi-type robe and is known as the “American Gandhi” for his outspoken preaching. He was recently Dr. Clarkson’s house guest at PN headquarters and spoke to several PN clubs.

Tonight, I purchased a copy of the Wycliffe Bible Dictionary to add to my collection of Greek and Hebrew works. Obviously, I looked up our slave-related term in I Timothy 1:10 -- "enslaver." Enslaver is most accurately presented as "one who unjustly reduces free men to slavery," in the Greek word, "andrapodistes." This person us under the judgment of the Moral Law of God in verse 9.

        This may also be represented accurately as, "one who imposes a labor tax/burden (e.g. income tax) upon an uncondemned free person; thus, under the judgment of the Moral law of God."

        The Old Testament discussion of this type of person in the Law of Moses is found in two places: Exodus 21:16 and Deuteronomy 24:7.

        Exodus 21:16 reads, "And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, shall surely be put to death" (King James Version).

        Deuteronomy 24:7 reads, "If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you."

        Interesting where our study is leading. It doesn't look good for IRS employees in the Old Testament. --


Stanley Lott, old friend of this organization and the Southern Cause, authors 85-page blockbuster exposes FedGov hypocrisy, criminality on race.

There’s nothing so exciting as the debut of a topical author from among the people. We have known Stanley Lott for a long time but didn’t see this coming. We congratulate him and wish him brisk sales! Below is how this development will be covered in NW’s “Dixie Diary” feature in noted publication the Nationalist Times. Next month we will review the book in this space.

May 18 -- At our monthly meeting in Toccoa GA, an extra-special guest Stanley K. Lott. Stanley is a black working man who's taken up the pro-Southern cause with a vengeance. On the streets of Columbia and at our rallies and demonstrations he is a cyclone of righteous rage against the naa¢p, mass media and the rest of the gliberal establishment. Now he's written a book -- Slavery and the U.S. Government -- which blows the cover off the USG's pose of messianic anti-racialism, past and present. This paperback is elegantly published by American Literary Press (dot com) in Baltimore. Our Toccoa associate RW Moore is the main retailer for it -- order from his eBay store if you like at stores. RW declares that the book's 100% grassroots author "has lived all his life in Saluda, SC. This is a great man of the Southern cause. He tells the truth about the War and slavery" and cites official Federal records on the FedGov's "case for the protection and support of slavery..... Stanley says at the close of the last page (82) `Black people need to get off the hate and white people need to let go of the guilt. Do not depend on other people  [for transmission of important facts] -- they could be educated, but they could be educated liars."
