It’s NOT just a bunch of “crystal-grippin’ hippie nonsense”… there really does seem to be something to it!
Consider a calculator. We can understand physical relationships between ourselves, objects, and other worlds. We can PLAN. We can BUILD. We can calculate trajectory, distance, fuel consumption, and place ourselves on a heavenly body… ALL with a calculator.
A Newtonian Calculator. The calculations of Einstein, the predictions of Hubble. All can be understood. The calculations of the REAL.
That calculator becomes TRASH in the world of the subatomic!
In a world where answers are only right ~3/4 of the time. Where the observer can only know ONE ANSWER and not BOTH. “… but I WANT to know how fast it is AND where it’s at!” … sorry! I’d like to tell you, but I can only GUESS.
THAT world seems foreign and bizarre… but that world is ALSO the world of the REAL. Even though we don’t SEE it, it goes on within us, around us, and THROUGH us, everyday.
Because we are made OF IT, that is part of our world. A world where two objects are entangled, and the connection is felt by BOTH… no matter how far apart they are. In a world where POSSIBILITY best determines the outcome of a particular set of circumstances, no conclusion is ever strictly ONE or THE OTHER. There is no CONCRETE answer… but the odds DO favor ONE result OVER the other!
INTUITION plays a key role alongside KNOWLEDGE. Observation effects outcomes, and KNOWING THAT helps decide what outcome we will SEE…
What kind of calculator could do all THAT? What would a “quantum calculator” even LOOK LIKE?
Within the world inside our atoms, possibility of differing charges come together… Positive charges, negative charges. Left spinning charges, right spinning charges. Coming together in multiple DIFFERING combinations, each time forming a perfectly functioning particle. Then joining together once again in a larger set of multiple combinations, creating the building blocks OUR genetic information is encoded WITHIN…
It’s in our DNA!
It is very real, and it is very powerful! It suggests BOTH ANSWERS can be correct. It is up to the OBSERVER to determine what shall BE! Right now EVERYTHING is possible, just like it will be again TOMORROW… WE are the Quantum Calculators.
Amazing, the BRILLIANCE and intuition found within OUR Constitution!
I’ve just posted the first installment of a new series of videos detailing the story laid out in the Special Counsel’s Report. More videos to come, detailing the evidence and the implications found within THE MUELLER REPORT.
… STAND UP for the Rule of Law!
“The Case Against The President: Part 1, The HEART of the Matter”
On Thursday, April 18, 2019, the Special Counsel’s Office released their report on Russian interference in the 2016 US elections. For weeks preceding the release, the president, the GOP, the Attorney General of the United States, the president’s legal counsel, and MANY MORE have said the report exonerated the president. “NO COLLUSION! NO OBSTRUCTION!” To anyone who believes this:
I urge you to READ THE REPORT.
Take to the task with the frame of mind of proving the people who believe what’s in the report, wrong. DEDICATE yourself to understanding EVERY ASPECT of what is in Volume #1 of the report. Because it lays out in a STEP-BY-STEP, PERSON-BY-PERSON timeline, who knew WHAT, and WHEN they knew it.
It becomes PAINFULLY OBVIOUS that Donald Trump has been LYING.
EVERY person interviewed by the Special Counsel, people who surrounded Trump during the campaign and during the transition, ALL of them were AWARE of Russia’s desire to help Trump win the election. EVERY campaign staff member made it CLEAR, to anyone reaching out on behalf of, or directly from the Russian government, any communication was BUSINESS ONLY. And EVERY person interviewed was certain that Trump WAS NOT INVOLVED…
EVERY person interviewed said so.
EVERY person said Trump DID NOT KNOW they had communicated with Russians, or if he did know, it was in conjunction with the “Trump Tower: Moscow” project that was ONGOING through June 2016. The project that he LIED ABOUT publicly when he said he had no business with Russia.
ABOVE: THIS was the internal response of the President-elect’s team after President Obama announced the United States would impose sanctions on Russia for meddling in our elections. A CLEAR disregard for ESTABLISHED LAW, honored by BOTH SIDES OF THE ISLE.
THEY KNOWINGLY WORKED AGAINST THE ORDERS OF A SITTING PRESIDENT
CLEARLY, people within the campaign were ACTIVELY seeking to work with the Russians. Attempts were made by the President-elect’s STAFF to conduct BUSINESS with a FOREIGN ADVERSARY,
But NOT the President-elect… HEAD of the Campaign.
EVERY person interviewed made sure to express the fact that Donald Trump did NOT communicate with Russia and he was unaware of their attempts. All while communicating via word-of-mouth, or via encrypted private communications apps that don’t save messages intentionally.
NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE! NO COMMUNICATIONS!
“… so what? It’s just dirt on a rival campaign. Besides, they’d NEVER BEEN in government before. THEY DIDN’T KNOW THE LAW.”
What they were offered, and what they sought, is an abstract concept. They were seeking INFORMATION… DATA. They were seeking “something of value” for their campaign, that was known to be illegal- STOLEN EMAILS. To BOOST their chances of winning an election. Be it an endorsement or assistance, a political campaign must account for services provided with a monetary value. DIRT ON OPPONENT seems like a “something of value” to me. And campaign finance laws, though they are HORRIBLY insufficient, are there to protect OUR DEMOCRACY. Products of lessons learned, from the corruption of our PAST.
We must consider this ALL in context… we’re speaking about DONALD J. TRUMP. His former lawyer testified before Congress that he would do ANYTHING to win. He was running for the HIGHEST OFFICE in a land, GOVERNED BY the RULE OF LAW. To suggest he is ignorant of the law seems… a stretch. ESPECIALLY when weighed TOGETHER with ALL THE EVIDENCE.
Which leads me to a sticky situation. One year ago, knowing this would be necessary, I began my campaign for the OFFICE. Knowing who Donald J. Trump was, I knew the only way ANYONE would be allowed to call him out on ANYTHING that he has done, would be OFFICIALLY… within the CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED and PUBLICLY VIEWED political arena. AS AN ADVERSARY in RHETORICAL BATTLE.
AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
As an EQUAL, seeking the HONOR of serving THE PEOPLE.
And in THIS light… I frame my battle. NOT against Donald J. Trump. He is a PRODUCT OF THE PROBLEM. He is THE BEST EXAMPLE I CAN USE TO DEMONSTRATE WHY WE NEED 100% TAX PAYER FUNDED ELECTIONS, but he can just as easily be substituted with GWB, or Nixon, or Clinton (both). The CORRUPT influence of FUNDRAISING, creating laws favoring DONORS over VOTERS, enforcing laws based on WEALTH instead of guilt or innocence, brings us NOW… to this point.
We are ALL faced with a CHOICE.
I seek the POWER of the OFFICE, to ensure it REMAINS the OFFICE OF THE PEOPLE. Not to WEAKEN it, not to CHANGE it, but to CLARIFY and FULLY DEFINE it. Without deference to PARTY or POLITICAL IDEOLOGY, with DEDICATION TO UNION, and our SHARED, COMMON-GOOD. Because I believe in the WILL of the American People.
And that means we STAND UP FOR EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW!
Just as the story goes, if you don’t stand up for the rights of others, someday you will stand ALONE. When you DEFEND the rights of others, you DEFEND those rights for YOURSELF! It hardly seems fair to allow someone who has NO RESPECT for the OFFICE HE HOLDS, to remain there and avoid accountability for his actions. Just consider the idea of MANDATORY MINIMUM SENTENCING for POSSESSION.
The problems we face CAN BE SOLVED when we STAND united, AS EQUALS. When the sign on the door says “Equal Justice Under Law” and we STILL don’t enforce it EQUALLY for all citizens, it is not what it appears to be. And that DOUBT in our CONSTITUTION makes us weak. Benefiting only ONE MAN. We, the PEOPLE, must CUT THE STRINGS on HIS PUPPET.
WE DECIDE WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE! We decide, because we are the balance upon which the system resides, we choose what we will see.
What do YOU SEE… faces or a vase?
I’ll bet there’s a spot on his body that will make his leg kick if you scratch it JUST RIGHT… and someone who KNOWS where it is.
WHO’S THE CRIMINAL HERE?
WHO’S THE CRIMINAL HERE?
… who’s the criminal HERE?
What IF the ‘DIRT ON OPPONENT’ was ‘A BAG OF WEED’?
When looking to purchase a bag of weed, it is NOT advisable to walk up to someone who is suspected of possessing it, and exclaim, “Good day, kind sir! I am looking to PURCHASE SOME MARIJUANA. Would you have ANY FOR SALE? HERE IS SOME CASH…”
Everyone knew the Russians had what they were seeking. The staff asked around, they emailed people they thought might be close to someone, who ‘knew someone’ in Putin’s circle… but strictly about “BUSINESS”! Not… you know. (wink)
“… using CODED LANGUAGE about a conversation he had that day.” Hmmm….
Does anyone remember THIS?-
On July 27, 2016, during an interview on CBS while at the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION, Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort was asked for CLARIFICATION 1:59 into the interview: “So to be CLEAR, Mr. Trump has no FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIPS with any Russian Oligarchs.”
His response, after stuttering and stumbling, fighting to find the right words:
“That’s what he said…. That’s obviously our position.”
I spent the day in Jefferson City, MO, standing up with many other feminists to demand that the Missouri Legislature bring the Equal Rights Amendment up for a vote. With only ONE MORE STATE needed for a Constitutional Amendment, Missouri has the chance to be THE STATE that puts it over the top!
Thank you to Erica Benson for organizing the event, and to MO Sen Jill Schupp and MO Rep Judy Morgan for sponsoring the ERA on this SECOND ATTEMPT at ratification. Everyone who believes in Equal Justice Under Law should DEMAND Equality for Women and Girls… what’s more American than EQUALITY?
Ever hopeful, I prepared a speech before the event, and since it didn’t come up, I’d like to share it here. I believe the historical parallels can help provide us with guidance… because we have seen this all before, and we know how it CAN go. Had I been given the opportunity, this is what I would have said-
As We Cross Another April
I’ve come here from the FREE STATE, the Great State of Kansas, as a self-appointed representative of the thirty-seven States that have already voted for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, with a MESSAGE for the remaining thirteen-
The war, is over! Today… NOT tomorrow. HERE is where we have drawn the line here, is where we make our stand… UNITED!
Because we have SEEN where division goes. We have seen where entrenchment leads… we’ve built monuments of granite and marble to stand as reminders.
Four score and seven years ago, the ideology of FEAR and DIVISION rose to power in Europe: the Nazi Party became the Majority, giving rise to a new leader.
We are now engaged in a new struggle, testing once again if ours is TRULY a Just Nation. Today, we are gathered in one of the LAST vestiges of our Civil War, just north of the Mason-Dixon Line, in the birthplace of the Missouri Compromise. It is altogether fitting and proper that, the renewed hope for the Equal Rights Amendment has brought us to this place, for as we struggle to recognize Equality for Women and Girls, we must also remember the unfulfilled promises made to Men and Women of Color, who CONTINUE to struggle for the SAME… long after Equality was ratified.
It is for us here today, to be dedicated to the unfinished work that so many have fought for and have thus far so nobly advanced. It is these principles that are born within the hearts of ALL humanity. That we are ALL created Equal, endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. It is the basic compassion within us ALL that moves us to STAND UP and DEFEND the Rights of others. We must remember the stories, taught to us by our Great- and Grand-parents:
Stand FIRM for what’s Right.
STAND UP for the Rule of Law.
Yes, the path is long and yes, this struggle is draining, but today, OURS is a BATTLEFIELD of WORDS. We must remember, those words have all of the impact of a DIGITAL BULLET… because they can strike the HEART, and motivate the MIND.
So we must be dedicated to the great task before us. We must HONOR those who have been lost and take increased devotion to the cause for which they LIVED their lives believing in-
Equal Justice Under Law.
Let us not judge, that we be not judged. “Woe unto the world because of offenses, for it must needs be that offenses come; but woe to that man by whom the offenses cometh.”
When fear and division give rise to oppression and tyranny, each one of us is faced with a CHOICE. We know how to defeat the liar and the bully- STAND UP and SPEAK OUT for Equal Justice Under Law. Because when you stand and DEFEND the Rights of OTHERS, you defend them for YOURSELF!
Time-tested, history-affirming, righteous ACTION in defense of Liberty is what makes OURS, a truly BLESSED NATION! When we, individually and BRAVELY, STAND UP for EQUAL JUSTICE… We STAND in GOOD COMPANY!
With malice toward none, with charity for ALL, with firmness in the right, as god gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for HER who shall have borne this battle, and for HER widow and HER orphan, to do all that is necessary to realize that lost promise of a Just and Lasting peace, among ourselves and with ALL nations.
Let us remember the WORDS of Susan B. Anthony:
“These assertions, of the framers of the United States Constitution, of equal and natural rights of ALL the people to a voice in government, have been affirmed and reaffirmed by the leading statesmen of the nation, throughout the entire history of our government.”
And that of James Madison himself:
“Let it be remembered, finally, that it has EVER BEEN the pride and the boast of America, that the Rights for which she contended, were the Rights… of HUMAN NATURE.”
I have made my decision, and I STAND by it… come what may. When presented with a choice, I carefully weighed the options and made the decision that was required of me. As has been the case countless times throughout the history of this country, sparked by something deeper than many can understand. Once a vision of what can BE is seen… it cannot easily be dismissed. Especially when it can touch the lives of EVERY human being on Earth.
I do not like to phrase it as such, but it is the underlying truth- To ensure the PEOPLE have the power to elect the President DIRECTLY, without the CORRUPT INFLUENCE of DARK MONEY deciding who is on the ballot…
Is there ANY fight that would be more HONORABLE?
Is there ANY CAUSE I could fight for, that would NOT be resolved if elected officials were elected based on the WILL OF THE PEOPLE ALONE, and not their ABILITY TO FUNDRAISE?
… No. I cannot name ONE.
How we reach a conclusion, as individuals, as a nation, starts with a presentation of the FACTS. The gathering of those facts should be OPEN and FAIR, free of a pre-determination, so we are not researching to reinforce a BAD IDEA.
An OPEN and HONEST debate of the facts helps us to put to rest outdated dogmas in-light of NEW EVIDENCE. Sometimes bad ideas continue to live, long passed their expiration date, because they are not discussed. No one who debates in GOOD FAITH, searching for TRUTH, wants to be wrong. IF they are proven wrong, they will GLADLY change their position… but they must be SHOWN the error of their ways!
To change one’s opinion in-light of NEW EVIDENCE is not weakness, it is the STRENGTH of intelligence. It is the STRENGTH of knowledge wielded to lift ourselves up, to make a BETTER LIFE.
To see a better way and NOT pursue it… seems to me, to be a sin. Especially in-light of the hell we put ourselves through every FOUR YEARS! Scholars of history will be better equipped than I, to tell you of what happens to kingdoms who succumb to CORRUPTION. But the patterns and the methods are just the same… be it Ancient Rome, or modern D.C.
When Ted Kennedy was asked, “Why do you want to be president?”, the answer ended his campaign. As Joe Biden ‘hee’s and haw’s’ about ‘will he?’ or ‘won’t he?’… I’ve just passed my campaign’s ONE YEAR anniversary.
I know why I am running.
I seek the Presidency to ensure the POWER resides in the hands of THE PEOPLE. Let there be NO DOUBT, to NOT do my best would be a dishonor to myself, my family, and my country. I would rather lose with HONOR in the throes of rhetorical battle, than cower in the face of insurmountable odds. The fact that I have so little to sacrifice should not be seen as somehow less than a candidate of wealth and great success. Every bit of what I have upon this earth hangs in the balance, because THAT is all I have to give…
And it is because of this glorious nation, that I have anything to offer at all!
I will never ask anything of anyone I would not first ask of myself, and I see it as an HONOR to even have the CHANCE! It is “FOR THE PEOPLE”…
Let them know- a vote AGAINST EQUALITY means a vote AGAINST THEIR RE-ELECTION.
Please join me and hundreds of others on April 11, 2019, in Jefferson City, MO, for the Rally to demand ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in the Great State of Missouri!
With only ONE MORE STATE necessary to reach the required 38 States for ratification, Missouri Legislators need to hear from EVERYONE, because their VOTE speaks not only for citizens of Missouri… but every citizen in THE NATION!
74% of the States have ALREADY DEMANDED Equal Rights for Women and Girls.
Let them know- a vote AGAINST EQUALITY means a vote AGAINST THEIR RE-ELECTION.
STAND UP and SPEAK OUT for EQUAL RIGHTS!!

April 11, 2019. Jefferson City, Missouri…
THURSDAY! THURSDAY! THURSDAY!🚨🔥📢
The STRUGGLE FOR EQUALITY rages on in a
RALLY for EQUAL RIGHTS under the CAPITOL DOME!🎉
featuring: SIGNS! SLOGANS! UNITY! CAMARADERIE! and TRUCK-ZILLA*!!
Below is the text of an email I recently sent to the organizers at project28mo.com to voice my support for the Equal Rights Amendment. It may not be much, but I will do ALL I CAN to help ensure EQUALITY for Women and Girls… let’s get it DONE!!
Not one more generation!
I wanted to voice my excitement, both publicly and privately, for the upcoming rally in Jefferson City. As I said, I hope my presence at the rally will help move legislators to allow a vote on the Equal Rights Amendment, and I am happy to offer my assistance in anyway I can while I am there.
Since my independent presidential campaign is currently running on less than a shoestring, I will only be in town for the day. But that day will be dedicated to serving the cause of Equal Rights and doing all I can to ensure ratification.
About a month after I began my initial campaign, (I was not ‘exploring’ anything, except how to make it official, so I hesitate to call it that…) I became acquainted with Erin Eddy and her work advocating for ratification of multiple bills protecting the Rights of Women and Girls. I have lived in the Kansas City Metro almost all of my life, my wife as well… and neither of us were aware of the pending Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), the still unratified international treaty establishing basic rights for children named the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), or the unratified Convention Ending Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
I would be lying if I said I was surprised to learn this. For me, it only confirmed how rotten the system has become. I began my campaign to raise awareness about the damage being caused by The Speaker of The United States House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, and his use of “The Hastert Rule” in blocking a vote on gun safety legislation in the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. A subject that touches me deeply, as my high school, Olathe North High School, had to deal with gun violence while I was a student.
Speaker Ryan’s cold and calculated refusal to even allow debate on legislation, laid BARE the intentions of this agenda. It is not to further the lives of American Citizens. It is not to protect children and make their lives safer. It is an agenda that promotes fear and division via legislative inaction, in an attempt to ensure a political advantage. On February 14, 2018, that agenda took the lives of 17 CHILDREN in Florida. Unlike the numerous other tragedies before that day, something happened that CHANGED the political landscape. The survivors… children… became The Speaker on that day, and they said NeverAgain.
I knew they would need help.
I wanted to share some of my thoughts, to clarify my position, so as not to appear to be a political opportunist. The corruption caused by our current campaign finance laws, or lack there of, has tainted every issue in our country. Remove the corruption in our national elections and candidates with honor will seek office, not for self-enrichment, but to serve the people, and make change in the interest of the PEOPLE, and not the DONORS. Any agenda that works to empower the PEOPLE and make their voices heard MORE CLEARLY, is an agenda I want to be a PART OF!
When we have UNIVERSAL, FREE and OPEN ACCESS to the ballot, the TRUE INTENT of the people will be realized. We will have CLARITY in our NATIONAL DIALOGUE, and this will lead to action and solutions, as directed by the people… all of them. Equally.
I am shocked and amazed at just how far the “con” has gone. No one is ignorant to the fact that politics is dirty… politicians prefer it that way! The more grey area, the more wiggle-room; the more loopholes and lard, the more room for fulfilling ones own self interests.
But 31%?!? My god… The polling in Virginia on the issue of Equal Rights for Women and Girls, shows the amendment is SUPPORTED by 81% of the State. That’s a no brainer! How many politicians would stand opposed to an issue supported by THAT many people? Well…
The final vote in the House of Delegates in the Commonwealth of the Great State of Virginia was 50/50 AGAINST Equality for Women and Girls in the United States, failing to get a hearing on the floor because of opposition to a RULES CHANGE. Support for the bill was in THE MAJORITY yet the bill was BLOCKED FROM BEING HEARD.
That is NOT a question. It IS the answer. It is a DEMAND.
It’s the answer to the question of voter turnout.
It’s the answer to our lack of gun safety legislation.
It’s the answer to our illegal immigration problems,
It’s the answer to the issue of “Dreamers”.
It’s the answer to our failing education system.
It’s the answer to roll-backs on environmental regulations.
It’s the answer to lack of oversight on Wall St.
It’s the answer to the lack of accountability.
It’s the answer to the MASSIVE income gap.
It’s the answer to our failing healthcare system.
It’s the answer to our crumbling infrastructure.
It’s the answer to our addiction to fossil fuels.
It’s the answer to our deepening racial divide.
It’s the answer to the vilification of Women’s Health.
It’s the answer to HOW CAN ALL OF THIS CONTINUE TO NOT BE SOLVED?!?
Paul Ryan called it “The Hastert Rule”. I call it BULLSHIT… because that’s all it is.
When I stood up and said “NO MORE!” to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, he did NOT answer.
The SPEAKER was SILENT.
If I were accused of supporting the agenda of a “serial rapist”, I would have at least made a public denial, or questioned the direct link between the legislative tactics being engaged in and the legislative tactics of Dennis Hastert, convicted fellon.
No. Paul Ryan choose SILENCE. My goodness… Yes, it really is THAT SIMPLE!
Paul Ryan’s political agenda was built upon a foundation of LIES and DECEPTION. When the political winds of change came his way, it all BLEW AWAY like a house of cards, HOLLOW to the core.
How many ‘Paul Ryan’s’ are there in Congress?… in the Senate?… in YOUR Statehouse?
When men and women of HONOR stand up and DEFEND the rights of others, there is no argument on Earth that can bring them down! And when we stand united, we BECOME the beacon, as the pure unified intentions of our nation shine a light wherever darkness rules… JUST BY STANDING UP. We cannot help but exude confidence in our American Exceptionalism!
It’s infectious… Liberty is. That’s why leaders in a nation ruled by tyrants SILENCE the press, SILENCE citizens who speak too loudly. Once it’s heard… it cannot be undone. The mind will NOT let it go. “… with Liberty and Justice for ALL.”
Somehow, one hot summer in Philadelphia, a mere man sat in-conference with the gods, and envisioned a world where ALL men are created EQUAL, just as the day they were born. There is none other on Earth that is as desired as ours! If we are to hold it up as THE example, should it not be the best it can? The absolute… The Pinnacle of Human Societal Evolution. It is an experiment, incomplete in its current form. Tethered to the whims and wills of mere mortals.
Never before had such a nation been conceived! Doubts in the fidelity of the common countrymen made many question if it were even possible. But the HOPE in the idea, that one day it COULD be so, led those imperfect men to create the perfect document, enshrining a system of EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW.
… sometimes, all you have to do is SHOW UP and the barriers will start to FALL.
