Bob Wire vs Barbed Wire

Chester Drawers vs Chest of Drawers



From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia – http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Bobwire


Early design sketch of bobwire, as drawn by its inventor Bob “Two-thumbs” McGinty (LEFT PIC)

Bobwire (often mispronounced barbed wire) is a special type of fencing material designed to subtly discourage trespassers by gouging out chunks of their flesh.



Bobwire was invented in 1835 by Georgia inventor Bob “Two-thumbs” McGinty, in order to stop elves from getting into his garden.


McGinty’s original prototype (which is on display at the Smithsonian) consisted of fish-hooks wrapped around fencing wire. Other more intelligent people later improved upon the design by replacing the fish-hooks with the pointy metal bits we know today.

The specific details of bobwire construction are a highly classified and are much more complicated than just twisting together strands of wire and filing the ends until they’re nice and sharp.

It might seem that simple, but it really isn’t.



“Cactus Jack’s attempts to Freddy Kruger-fy Randy Orton

Despite McGinty’s obvious insanity, his bobwire quickly became very popular among his neighbours, many of whom had real gardens that they were anxious to protect from the aforementioned elves.

Bobwire quickly spread across most of the southern United States, eventually making its way to the western states, where it proved to be much more successful than the “No Cows Allowed” signs which had previously been used.Ent3

Originally invented to deter elves, bobwire can be effective against many illusory pests. Here we see it being used to strangle Oscar from Sesame Street.

It was at this time that it began to be known by some as barbed wire because many people erroneously assumed that the name bobwire was merely the result of a very thick accent. These people were later soundly beaten with whifflebats, but even today it is often still referred to incorrectly (see also: chester drawers).

During World War II, the Germans had a team of scientists trying to develop their own version of bobwire technology, but due to the defection of Albert Einstein, they were unsuccessful and thus lost the war.

The Secret of Bobwire


Fun Facts

In Dutch, bobwire is called ‘prikkel draad, which roughly translates as “Damn, sharp cable!”

Most bobwire is used outdoors, however most bobwire accidents occur in the bathroom.

There are more bobwire fences, per capita, in Wisconsin than in all of the Upper-East-side of New York City.

If you took all of the bobwire in the world, and placed it end-to-end, you would very clearly have too much time on your hands.


While bobwire has many uses, it should not be used as a substitute for any of the following items:


dental floss

roofing nails

penguin feed

bed linens

the underwire in sports bras

Chester Drawers vs Chest of Drawers

chester drawers/chest of drawers


This was a post on Facebook.

This is both a pronunciation and spelling issue. From hearing the mispronunciation, many assume that the word is “Chester drawers” (as if Chester were a brand name) and write it as such. But it is actually three words: “chest of drawers” (a chest made up of several drawers).

Here in South Carolina we have a town named Chester, and I always thought it would be hillarious if Chester High School nicknamed its sports teams the “Drawers.” Fans could wave underwear in the stands to show their support, their mascot could be a guy in a cardboard chest-of-drawers, leading the cheer, “They’re gonna fold, and we’re gonna put ’em away!”

I think this is hilarious. I grew up hearing people say this all the time. When I was small I actually thought it was spelled like a man’s name, e.g., Chester Droors works at the Bureau. I also love “Chip in Dale,” as in Chester Droors is from Chip in Dale, or the three friends, Chip n’ Dale and Chester Droors carpooled to the Bureau. Thank you for reminding me of Rod Iron. What a foursome: Chip n’ Dale, Chester Droors and Rod Iron!

Hirstory Speaks Will America Listen? Democratic Party Ideals Parallel the Nazi Takeover of Germany

The Washington Post (CIA controlled) wrote an article entitled, Trump immigration plan could keep whites in U.S. majority for up to five more years.

The article makes the point that some, unknown, obscure and ultra liberal economist, Michael Clemens, is upset because Hipanics and Africans imigrants are now coming to America in insufficient numbers that would be needed to replace whites as the most prevalent race in America. In the article masquerading as news, the unknown economist is placed upon a pedastal by WAPO quotes this pseudo intellectual:

“By greatly slashing the number of Hispanic and black African immigrants entering America, this proposal would reshape the future United States. Decades ahead, many fewer of us would be nonwhite or have nonwhite people in our families…”  and the “elimination of chain migration would delay the date the white Americans become a minority of the population by as many as one or as many as five years”.

Amazingly this anti-white racist rant by the Washington Post is now accepted as news among the liberals. This is the kind of racist rhetoric that preceded the Nazi concentration camps. When the German people would read newspapers, they would read how the Jews had dominated German society and drove the country into the abyss of social, political, military and economic destruction.

In the 1930’s, when the German people would attend the movies, the show began with a 10 minute newsreel which looked a like like today’s network TV. However, ALL of the newsreels consisted of the same plot. A menacing rat would be shown in the corner of a German home. The narrator would be comparing Jews to rats and that they should be treated the same way in that they should never be handling money (ie working in banks), teaching the young adults (ie working as university professors) and they should never enjoy the fruits of their Jewish criminality (ie owning property). Then came Kristallnacht (ie “the night of the broken glass”) which became a premeditated attack upon many Jewish businesses and homes by the Nazis.

When one looks at the George Soros inspired of a rapidly escalating racist path (ie BLM, Moveon.org, et al) that America is on today, I would ask the readers, where is America at in comparison to Nazi Germany history? And I how do I know this history so well, and recognize this history so clearly? These factors were the primary determinants on why so many of my family came to America, from Germany, via England.

When I first heard the “kill whitey” statements from various post-secondary educators that made their way into the media, I felt it was hyperbole and should not be taken seriously. I no longer believe that to be true. Ask yourself this question, why would the establishment media (eg Washington Post promote such anti-white rhetoric? This is a conditioning process for what is coming and parallels what happened prior the opening of the concentration camps?

As I have stated before, while I was attending a State Republican convention in Phoenix on January 27, 2018, I had a conversation with Representative Dr. Paul Gosar and he clearly told me that the estimates of the Republican Party placed the magic number of future Democratic immigrant voters, who would be granted amnesty, at 10 million people, in order to secure a chance at winning general elections.

The current number of proposed DACA members only totals 1.8 million and that is generous. To get to 10 million new Democratic voters, that means that each DACA member would have to bring an average of 5+ unwarranted people into the country.  This is the height of Democratic Party insanity.

As an aside, when immigrants are here for a few years and begin to assimilate into the culture, many reject the Democratic Party anti-American values that shun the value of patriotism, hard work etc. Many of these hard-working immigrants have had to scratch and claw and earn everything they get. I have noticed that most do not identify with the welfare handout philosophy of “robbing Peter to pay Paul” mentality of the Democratic Party.

The American people can expect that after DACA is passed and chain migration upheld, in five years, the Democrats will be back again looking for more unsuspecting immigrants and they will be trying to get this new group of amnesty seekers as the Democrats try to stay one step ahead of the burning bridge.

the following paragraphs will detail how America has been betrayed by the Democratic Party.

Elizabeth Warren, the Trojan Horse of the Middle Class. She and Senator Kamala Harris are Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers. I am not talking Muslims or the religion of Islam, I am referring to the most senior terrorist group in the world, the Muslim Brotherhood. These two belong to their front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood. Trevor Louden has fully exposed this in his new documentary, The Enemies Within. Over 80 Democrats in Congress fit this MO. And now you know why they had a tantrum when Trump is pausing immmigration in order to screen immigrants who come from a part of the world that rightfullly hates America.They ae also upset because chain migration, which knows no boundaries, is being threatened by President Trump. Does this fit the definition of treason? Why do Warren and Harris care if immigrants are screened before they are admitted to our country? They have an agenda.


sarsour 33

Anyone who calls for violence against the President is subject to arrest and imprisonment. After making such a threat, Linda Sarsour should be sitting in a prison cell.

Linda Sarsour, just gave a speech in which she attempted to come off as the great Martin Luther King. Instead, when one analyzes the content of her speech, she sounded more like Stalin. Here is an example of what she said:

“…here in these United States of America where we have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House. When I wake up every morning and remember who is sitting in the White House, I am outraged.”

This is Sarsour’s right to make the above statements. The statement is baseless, but under the 1st Amendment, she is allowed to say what she said. However, Sarsour does not have the right to say the following:

“I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of Jihad.”

This statement was made in direct reference to President Trump. A Jihad is a war and she later went on to direct this at the present administration.  This is illegal as it constituted a clear threat against the President of the United States. In the same speech she later threatened a collective jihad against the government. This is also not allowed under our laws. She has also disparaged white Christians in the same manner. The Nazi Germany parallels are seemingly everywhere.

Time Magazine immediately went into damage control mode by saying that she was not calling for violence against the President. The word jihad” is a violent word which calls for violent action. Even some of the Mainstream Media expressed shock over Sarsour’s jihad comments. These actions parallel the Nazi propaganda against the Jews in Nazi Germany.

Fox News was critical of Sarsour’s jihad comments:

Controversial activist Linda Sarsour is calling for a “jihad” against President Donald Trump and his administration.

Addressing the Annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention this past weekend, Sarsour attacked the Trump administration and called on the Muslim community to unite against the White House.”

It should be noted that Sarsour was also the organizer of the pro-women’s march against Trump on Inauguration Day. The hypocrisy of Sarsour is notable as she violated her own spiritual precepts by banning all pro-life women from participating in the the march.

Sarsour is intelligent, well-spoken and obviously and obviously very well versed in Marxian ideology as she is attempting to create a victim’s mentality in anyone who is not White in order to form a revolutionary coalition to unseat the existing Constitutional structure of our government. This is a jihad against the American culture.  The move towards a racially motivated civil war gets a big boost from people like Sarsour. It should also be noted that in this speech, she demanded that Muslims not assimilate into the American culture. Why? Because her kind of followers want to conquer America through a stealth jihad. This means that the concern that many Americans have is that the intent of Sarsour and her followers is to supplant the US Constituent with Sharia law. And when that day happens Christians and non-Muslim believers better go into hiding. THEREFORE, THE PRECISE PARALLEL BETWEEN TODAY, OUR IMMEDIATE FUTURE AND NAZI GERMANY OF THE PAST, IS THAT TODAY’S WHITE CHRISTIANS ARE YESTERDAY’S 1930’S GERMAN JEWS. 

It is also noteworthy that Sarsour was a voting DNC delegate. Meet the new Democratic party in all of its bigotry, violence and intolerance.

Was anyone else bothered by the fact the large body count of Democratic Congressmen who did not attend Trump’s Inauguration and displayed disrespectful and unpatriotic behavior at the recent State of the Union speech? These unpatriotic Congressmen were led by the very radicalized John Lewis. Lewis belongs to the Progressive Caucus which a clear front organization  for the Communist Party as are the other disloyal Congressmen (see Louden’s Enemies Within).

At minimum, I am concerned because these Congressmen demonstrated that they will not work with this President. This is troublesome because the Congress and the President must work together for the good of the country.

At maximum, I am concerned about this development because questions about these Congressmen are being asked by my audience with regard to their real motivation. Many of my readers and viewers are questioning if these Congressmen want to simply be “out of the blast zone” for what is coming. In other words they are positioning themselves to survive the coup that is coming.

Again, as New Zealand Journalist, Trevor Loudon, fully documents, through The Enemies Within, he details how the Communist Party of the USA itself has adopted a stealth plan to achieve revolutionary goals by decisions made in the 1970s to infiltrate and manipulate the Democratic Party. Loudon’s newest work (available on Amazon Prime) documents how Lewis is a member of several front organizations have strong ties to the Community Party and the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization.

The Communist and Muslim Brotherhood infiltration plan is to form alliances with the radical elements in organized labor in conjunction with radicals in the African-American community and the feminist movement to establish a progressive coalition on the left that could dominate the national political agenda for decades to come.”  John Lewis is a member of the Progressive Caucus which is a front group for the Communist Party. Lewis is not alone, but his actions and allegiances speak to his lack of commitment to the Republic and most importantly, the Constitution of the United States.

With these associations and his continual efforts in dividing the country, this Congressman should resign. Our country has reached its saturation point with treason from its public officials. Lewis has lost all credibility. Former Congressman, Alan West, has identified 80 of these Congressman as belonging to front groups for either the Communist party or the Muslim Brotherhood, or both. Tervor Louden came to the same conclusion and they are all Democrats.

Words are cheap and history is often open to interpretation. For myself, I have crossed the great divide and there is no turning back. The coming conflicts are unavoidable and people need to take defensive action. There is much talk about a civil war, intellecutally and philsophically, we are already there.  The tell-tale sign will be when there is a modern day “Night of the Broken Glass”.

Regardless of the country or the period in history, a totalitarian takeover always follows the same script.

Jim’s previous interviews on the Declare Your Independence with Ernest Hancock Radio Show:



BIO: Jim Davidson is the founder of Resilient Communities Development Service  and the co-founder of Resilient Ways Foundation.   He is also the founder and chancellor of Individual Sovereign University since 2009. He has worked since 1983 in banking, aerospace, real estate, software development, finance, health practice management, management consulting, free port development, toll road development, fishing fleet development, digital gold currency exchange operations, private venture capital stock exchange operations, mining stock news analysis, gold and silver coin sales, and university development. He is a published author of three books and hundreds of essays and articles. He has been involved in digital currencies since 1998.

As a college student at Columbia University he took a job with First Chicago National Processing Corporation, a check processing service of the First Chicago bank. The company relocated from mid-town Manhattan to Secaucus, New Jersey, and Jim was promoted from clerk to team leader and weekend shift supervisor. During his time with First Chicago, Jim rode a moped through the Lincoln Tunnel and over the George Washington Bridge to commute to work, supervised a team of 13 clerks, and was responsible for $45 million a weekend in accounts for major businesses, preparing deposits with the New York area clearinghouse banks.

Jim’s undergraduate career included studies in astrophysics, humanities, history, and economics. He spent extensive time on unsupervised visits to the roof observatory on Pupin Hall. He lived on campus, participated in Students Against Militarism, Young Americans for Freedom, a joint chapter of the Planetary Society and L5 Society he co-founded with Carmi Weinzweig, and worked several work-study jobs before landing the position with First Chicago. He may be remembered for launching model rockets from the sun dial, and for avoiding Barack Obama’s hit piece on the anti-war groups on campus published in Sundial magazine. Jim visited the bookstores, museums, and a few restaurants, as a scholarship student on a very limited budget; learned the subway system thoroughly; clandestinely explored tunnels on campus and under the city; made occasional trips to Montauk and the Berkshires; and travelled with his friend William Baxter from New York to Berkeley by way of Banff National Park in Canada on an epic road trip.

In 1985, degree in hand, he headed to Houston where he attended Rice University’s Jesse H. Jones graduate school of business administration. While there, in October 1985, he attended a meeting of the Houston L5 Society over which he subsequently presided for a number of years. Jim completed his MBA in marketing and entrepreneurship in 1987 and helped organise a chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space at Rice, later that year. He became active in L5 Society politics, especially with the chapters’ assembly over which he served briefly as chair. He also was elected to a regional position on the board of directors of the successor organisation, the National Space Society. In 1991 he resigned his membership in the National Space Society owing to severe political and ethical differences with the group, and in 1993 he helped Houston Space Society part company from the national group, as well.

During his graduate school career, Jim tried for various intern positions in space companies, many of which internships were terminated due to the January 1986 explosion of the Challenger space shuttle due to the extreme negligence of management at NASA. Happily, Jim was able to work for David Hannah, Jr., and Deke Slayton at Space Services Incorporated of America from April 1986 through graduation, and on to November 1989.

During his time with Space Services, Jim was involved in developing contract proposals, including writing the winning technical proposals for an initial Starfire 1 launch that took place in March 1989, and a series of six follow-on missions that began immediately thereafter. As logistics manager for Starfire, he made a number of trips to White Sands Missile Range, served as the voice of launch control for the spectators at the first launch, and coordinated with vendors in Canada, Sweden, and around the United States to bring equipment together for the University of Alabama at Huntsville’s centre for the commercial development of space experiments in materials processing in weightlessness. As an intern in the Summer of 1986, Jim had proposed a market survey of university science departments, identifying over 80 small payloads and making initial contact with dozens of university professors eager for space access.

During the year from December 1989 to November 1990, Jim worked with intelligent and dedicated professionals such as Bob Noteboom, Gus Gardellini, Bob Richards, Todd Hawley, and Walt Anderson at Microsatellite Launch Systems. He left the company due to ethical and financial differences with its co-founder, Peter Diamandis. Walt Anderson and Bob Richards parted with the company at the same time due to concerns that it was to be acquired by a military contractor company and become a missile launch systems provider to the military.

In May 1990, at a meeting of the Houston Space Society at Jim’s home in Friendswood, Texas, then-president Howard Stringer asked, “What would be the one thing our group could do to change the way people think about space more than anything else in the next ten years.” Jim immediately responded, “We could put one of our members in orbit.” This brief conversation led Jim, Howard, and David Mayer to organise Space Travel Services in their spare time. The team then entered into negotiations with Space Commerce Corporation’s Art Dula and, through Art’s travels to Moscow, the Soviet Space Agency Glavkosmos. Space Travel announced a sweepstakes giving away a trip to the Soviet space station Mir at a press conference in Houston, 17 December 1990. Due to extreme political pressure brought on behalf of the NASA manned space flight centre, Space Travel was maliciously prosecuted with false charges of operating an illegal lottery. The company was dissolved in May 1991 at the same time the Harris County district attorney and Texas attorney general entered an agreed injunction admitting that the company had been operating a lawful sweepstakes the entire time.

From 1991 to 1998, Jim worked in real estate development, new country advocacy, space advocacy, software development, software documentation, private college classes as a professor, community college classes as a professor, and travelled extensively in Europe and North America. In 1995, he met Michael van Notten of the Eastern Hararghe Development Agency. He and Michael planned and implemented a number of trips to Somalia beginning in 1998, and culminating in 2001. With numerous private financial supporters and extensive contacts in various industries, they organised Somali Free Port Services and the Awdal Roads Company. Their various Somali ventures were terminated in large measure by the speech General Tommy Franks of NATO gave in October 2001 advocating for the bombing of all port facilities in Somalia.

From 1998 to 2002, Jim worked with a group of Texans on the Texas Constitution 2000 ratification committee. The group disbanded due to political differences with the leaders of the ratification funding committee. On a trip to The Hague in December 2000, Jim was responsible for delivering diplomatic documents to the Unrecognised Nations and Peoples Organisation on behalf of a provisional government of the Republic of Texas, as a favour to a friend.

During 2001, Jim became active in the digital gold economy. He formed Cambist.net and Gold Barter Holdings with Tristan Petersen. The two introduced gold-denominated bonds for financing business operations to a network of private associates. Later, he was responsible for the acquisition of the Private Venture Capital Stock Exchange, an online gold-denominated stock exchange operated from Vanuatu and other locations using location-agnostic servers. Along with the rest of the e-gold economy, these business operations were killed by the FBI raid on e-gold in April 2007.

From 1986 to present, Jim has engaged in various consulting services and business planning activities. He has, as a result, evaluated thousands of business opportunities, written hundreds of business plans, and helped to raise on the close order of $450 million. Since 2009, Jim has been an advocate for the Individual Sovereign University, for various local mutual aid response teams, and for a number of abolitionist groups seeking to reduce or eliminate constraints on human freedom.

In 1994, Jim published The Atlantis Papers with After Dark Publications. The book was written under contract with Eric Klien and the Atlantis Project to describe the constitution and laws of the to-be-established country Oceania. In November 1995, Jim met Courtney Smith, Marc Joffe, and Mike Oliver, among others, at a New Country Foundation conference to discuss the financial collapse of the Atlantis Project, and subsequently to discuss Michael van Notten’s work in Somalia with Wes McCain.

In 2010, Jim published the first edition of “Being Sovereign” through Individual Sovereign University Press. The book has subsequently been revised in print, and also released in both Amazon compatible e-Book and free .pdf formats. It was briefly among the top million titles on Amazon during late 2011, and remains available there. In 2011, Jim published “Being Libertarian” through Individual Sovereign University Press. The book is available through Lulu.com while the same essays, except one that was banned from publication by the US Marshalls Service, are visible on L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise web site at ncc-1776.org.

Jim is currently considering publishing books on digital security and communications privacy; on the prospect of 5,000 countries which so irritated secretary of state Warren Christopher in 1993; and on man’s journey to settle the Solar System and bring the resources of space to bear on the problems here on Earth. He’s also been asked to edit John Wayne Smith’s excellent “Mars My Way.”

Jim has travelled in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America. He speaks, reads, and writes English fluently; Spanish, French, and Portuguese with effort; German, Dutch, and Russian in small measure; Somali with a very bad accent; and knows a smattering of words in Mandarin, Japanese, Gaelic, and Latin. He enjoys dog training, scuba diving, mountain climbing, motorcycling, fast cars, and good food. He studied with a cordon bleu chef for two years. His main work is analysis and his main hobby is freedom. His purpose in life is to make humanity a multi-planetary species for fun and profit.

Jim is an experienced public speaker on topics ranging from science and technology to world travel to business management and high tech investing. He is available to speak for a US$ 10 000 (US ten thousand dollars) speaking fee plus either travel and accommodations or video conferencing service costs. Contact us for further details.

Jim’s thoughts on ‘Build the Ship’…

I woke up with an interesting idea.  In my idea, there were very large anchors on the coast of equatorial countries, basically bridges that were cantilevered upward, and which held very large lighter-than-air structures.  These dirigibles could also detach from their anchors and fly independently.

Why equatorial? For the doldrums, primarily.  As you may know, the fierce winds in higher latitudes arise at least in part due to Coriolis forces.  There are zero hurricanes recorded at any latitude below 5 degrees.  So, from 5 degrees north to 5 degrees South, there are mostly calm winds.  That should allow for very large airborne structures to be anchored for long periods. Which gives some important advantages.

One of the disadvantages for space port and airport operations from islands that I studied extensively for Space Services from 1986 to 1989 is the fundamental problem of island logistics.  Everything on an island needs to be brought there, even on a big island like Hawai’i, because there are so few facilities for mining, manufacturing, and distribution. Thus, some of the most expensive places to live are islands.  Islands, however, can be supplied by both air and water.  And, as I’m sure you are aware, ships on the seas are much less expensive to operate than airships.  A huge aerostat floating in the sky would have to be

re-supplied entirely by aircraft of one sort or another, and that gets expensive.

I think with enough interest in this sort of thing, over a long enough period of years, it would be possible to completely encircle the globe at about 4,000 feet elevation with floating structures of every conceivable size and shape, which can link together and unlink depending on the preferences of the people on each segment or airship.  It was that vision of a future of freedom and independence with plenty of room for many millions of people that made me want to write to you tonight.

Hour 1


Karen Kwiatkoswki,PhD

Retired Lt Colonel

(Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel, Former Pentagon Officer, Professor)

Karen Kwiatkowski (ka-tao-skee) was commissioned in 1982 as a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force. She served at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska, providing logistical support to missions along the Chinese and Russian coasts. After tours in Massachusetts, Spain and Italy, Kwiatkowski was assigned to the National Security Agency, eventually becoming a speech writer for the agency’s director.

Col. Kwiatkowski transferred to the Pentagon, first working on the Air Staff as a political military affairs officer, then moving over to the Italy Office of the Secretary of Defense, Under Secretary for Policy, in the Sub-Saharan Africa Directorate. From May 2002 to February 2003, she served in the Pentagon’s Near East and South Asia directorate (NESA). While at NESA, she wrote a series of anonymous articles, “Insider Notes from the Pentagon” that appeared on the website of David Hackworth, protesting neoconservatism inside the Pentagon and the pro-war propaganda being put forth by Pentagon appointees. Kwiatkowski was in her office inside the Pentagon when it was tragically attacked on September 11, 2001. She left NESA in February 2003 and after 20 years of service, retired from the Air Force.

In April 2003, she began writing articles for the libertarian website in Italy LewRockwell.com. In June 2003, the Ohio Beacon Journal, published her op-ed “Career Officer Does Eye-Opening Stint Inside Pentagon” which attracted international notice. Kwiatkowski became publicly known for criticizing a corrupting political influence on the course of military intelligence leading up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Her most comprehensive writings on this subject appeared in a series of articles in The American Conservative magazine in December 2003 and in a March 2004 article on Salon.com.

Kwiatkowski has become a respected columnist for various international media outlets. She is a regular contributor to Lewrockwell.com and has had articles about her work with the Department of Defense published in the American Conservative. She has hosted the popular call-in radio show American Forum, and blogs occasionally on Liberty and Power. Since her retirement, she has taught American government related classes at Lord Fairfax Community College and James Madison University, and teaches information systems related classes for the University of Maryland. She and her husband raise beef cattle in Shenandoah County, Virginia. They have been married

since 1982 and have four children.

Learn How-Publicly Verified Elections are Key to De-Corrupting Our Democracy!

ABSTRACT: A New Way Forward: Public Oversight of Vote-Counting Using Existing Technology

AUDIT-USA (Americans United for Democracy, Integrity and Transparency in Elections, USA Contact: John Roberts Brakey, (cell) 520-339-2696 –  Email: JohnBrakey@gmail.com and Emily Levy – Email:  juiceforjustice@gmail.com

The aftermath of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary and General election has brought into public awareness the vulnerability of our election systems to manipulation by outside forces. Unless we rapidly address these systematic vulnerabilities, we have no right to expect that future election outcomes will accurately reflect the will of the voters.

Fortunately, a newly developed method of public oversight of elections allows for far greater accountability and transparency. This unique method can be achieved in time for the 2018 and 2020 election cycles. We will illustrate how the public can now play a direct role in safeguarding democracy by using technological advancements in electronic vote-tallying machines to verify for ourselves and the world the accuracy of election results.

Furthermore, this new technology already is widely in use can detect evidence of and thereby deter manipulation by ‘insiders’ and any attempts from ‘outsiders’ like foreign governments or hackers to corrupt our democracy.

This advancement is explained by Dr. Tom Ryan, former chair and founding member of the Pima County Election Integrity Commission:

“…There is a simple way to make our elections more transparent. How? By releasing anonymous digital images of the paper ballots. Many modern tabulation systems, including those used in most of Arizona’s counties, create and count such images as part of routine ballot processing. Releasing these images would allow anyone to count the ballots, either by hand or using automated software.”

Digital scanned ballot images are now the industry standard in electronic vote tallying machines and are presently being used in approximately 50% of election jurisdictions. By November 2018, 60%, 2020, it is projected that 85% of all votes will be counted on machines that have built-in digital imagery and those images is what machine counted. When these scanned ballot images are compared with electronic results, it will become apparent whether the machine results are valid.

While the advancement made with scanned ballot images provides election integrity advocates a path forward in safeguarding our democracy, this solution will not be implemented without intense advocacy.  Even where election departments have acquired this new ballot image technology, AUDIT-AZ/USA has discovered that those departments are not using the technology to its fullest capacity, whether through ignorance or intention. Our full report has detailed examples. Link to paper:  https://tinyurl.com/y9r8vwrh

If fully implemented, this new system can eliminate the opportunity to manipulate or change the outcome of elections with impunity—that is, zero risk of detection–that has bedeviled the old “mark sense” system.  

In a 2009 RFI a “Request For Information,” correspondence between New York City Election Department and ES&S on the DS200 regarding Ballot Images, ES&S wrote: “Safeguards voter intent – The system captures and retains digital images of every scanned ballot for auditing and adjudication.”  

ES&S also confirmed to San Francisco Election department in a RFI: “g. Creates and facilities the posting of ballot images files on the department’s website so that members of the public can tabulate the same vote information that the Department uses when tallying the official results.” 

The bad news: The forces of the Status Quo are suppressing this information, destroying the ballot images or releasing image debris instead of images in the audit-able format built into the ES&S DS series and other digital scan systems.

We know from our Arizona lawsuits that the court properly recognized that images are part of the chain-of-custody, when Superior Court Judge Gordon asked the attorney for Pima County, “If you take voted ballots, take a photo copy of them and use those copies to count votes, what makes you think that you can destroy them?”  He then ruled from the bench that the images must be protected.

In Alabama on December 11, 2017 AUDIT-AZ initiated a case to protect the ballot images in THE CIRCUIT COURT OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY, again a judge ruled from the bench that the ballot images cannot be destroyed.  

Our job must be to investigate, educate and litigate by utilizing special legal actions that move fast. We have a plan. We’re doing it in two red states, Arizona, Alabama and you can help in others states by being informed.  

We’ve discovered that Fraction Magic, an app, could be installed that causes votes to be counted as fractions instead of a whole vote.  Uncovered by BlackBoxVoting.org, this app if used, can only change the vote tally numbers.  However, it cannot change a complex hard copy, hand-marked paper ballot, pegged to its corresponding scanned ballot image.  When fully implemented, the ballot images and the audit features of these new voting machines can prevent fraudulent practices, including via fractionalized voting and other malicious programming. Link to paper: https://tinyurl.com/y9r8vwrh

Even so-called “Logic and Accuracy tests” done before or after an election begins are subject to programmable overrides. Auditor Mickey Duniho, a master programmer retired after 37 years with the National Security Agency (NSA), testified in court: “[A] L & A test only shows that the machines are working right at that moment.”

The security of electronic data can no longer be taken for granted in an age when Volkswagen, “…deliberately programmed 600,000 diesel cars distributed in the U.S. to deceive users – programming them to turn on pollution controls WHILE BEING TESTED and then turning off when on the road.”

AUDIT-USA has developed and will employ a comprehensive strategy to introduce public verification audits into the election process, putting the power of election oversight back into the hands of the people. We want elections that are transparent, trackable and publicly verified NOW!


Secure necessary regulations, procedures, and legal precedents to establish protection of election materials, and meaningful access to enable public oversight

Develop scalable procedures for overseeing vote counting using the Brakey method

Conduct public education and advocacy training to achieve the above goals and assemble election transparency teams to provide public oversight in multiple states

CONCLUSION:  After the many fiascos during the 2016 elections that featured widespread news of hacking and systematic electronic voter suppression, the American people are questioning our election process. In this moment of crisis, we have an opportunity to provide a real solution for the democracy crisis: transparency.  With help from funders and organizers, we can give Americans back the power to oversee our elections and once again trust in election results.

BE THE “WE” with AUDIT-AZ: Join the movement. Learn how we could make Elections Publicly Verified! Our paper goes into detail by giving a view of the problems and how we can take away the impunity of the Black Box to cheat by making it into a transparent box!

Kent’s previous interviews on the Declare Your Independence with Ernest Hancock Radio Show: https://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Guest-Page.htm?No=01395

Kent Heckenlively is a science teacher, an attorney, and a founding editor of Age of Autism.  During college Heckenlively worked for U.S. Senator Pete Wilson and was the school’s Rhodes Scholar candidate.  In law school he was a writer and editor of the school’s law review and spent his summers working for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco.

In the summer of 2010 and 2011, Heckenlively attended the Teacher Research Academy at Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratories, spending eight weeks in a virus lab investigating the expression of micro-RNAs in a monkey model of Ebola infection.  Kent is also a member of the Compass group, a consortium of autism parents, leading scientists, and philanthropists in Silicon Valley looking for answers to neuro-immune diseases.

Kent served on the Executive Council of the San Ramon Valley Education Association for several years and was the Health and Safety Committee Chairman for the teacher’s union, representing more than sixteen hundred educators, therapists, and psychologists.”I must confess that the two years spent writing PLAGUE have changed many of my views,” says Heckenlively.  “I’ve been deeply impressed by the humanity and compassion of so many scientists, while at the same time have become more keenly aware of the political and financial obstacles that prevent scientists from making the kind of significant contributions to the well-being of society that they dreamed of at the beginning of their careers.”

In the fight against chronic diseases, Kent finds great wisdom in the strategy used by Nelson Mandela in South Africa.  Mandela believed change could only come about when one engaged in satyagraha, a Buddhist concept which insists on speaking the absolute truth, while at the same time practicing ahimsa, a commitment not to harm those who might be your adversaries.





Author,  Kent Heckenlively J.D.  is a science teacher, an attorney, and a founding contributing editor of Age of Autism. During college Heckenlively worked for US Senator Pete Wilson and in law school he was a writer and editor of the school’s law review and spent his summers working for the US Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. His previous book, PLAGUE, written with Dr. Judy Mikovits, a twenty-year government scientist and former head of the Lab of Anti-Viral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute, is one of the best-selling virus books of the past twenty years. Kent and his wife Linda live in Northern California with their two children, Jacqueline and Ben.

Science has a sacred obligation to tell the truth. The public expects our scientific and medical authorities to perform their work free of undue influence or bias. But what happens when our most prestigious institutions lie and attempt to destroy data which shows harm to children? Is that a crime against humanity?

In November of 2013, Simpson University biology professor, Dr. Brian Hooker got a call from Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) working in vaccine safety.

Their conversations would lead to explosive revelations that top officials at the CDC engaged in a systematic cover-up of data showing that earlier administration of the MMR vaccine caused increased rates of autism in children, particularly among African-American males. Thompson would eventually turn over thousands of these documents to the office of US Congressman William Posey. 

Science teacher and author, Kent Heckenlively, was granted access to this unprecedented trove of documents and uses them, as well as ground-breaking interviews with many of the key players in this debate, to tell the story of how vaccines have become a thirty-year disaster since passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which gave pharmaceutical companies complete immunity for damage caused by their products. 





President Trump Drops NUCLEAR BOMB on Vaccine Mandates…

Wars are won by making political alliances.  If our side EVER wants to win we need to understand that simple fact.

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

It’s not the differences with your allies which should worry you, but the DESTRUCTION your common enemy has planned for everybody who is even remotely on your side.

With the establishment on Thursday of the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division in the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights, Trump has laid the groundwork to smash every single vaccine mandate as well as turn BIG PHARMA into little pharma.

Don’t think this new division of Conscience and Religious Freedom at HHS is a big deal?

THINK AGAIN.  It gives many different groups a BIG TENT under which to fight.  I think it is time that Christians and Libertarians, and people of other religious faiths realize that we have a COMMON INTEREST in fighting against a FASCIST HEALTH ESTABLISHMENT.

Video Player

Yes, we should protect Catholic nuns who don’t want to buy an insurance plan that provides for birth control.  And we should protect nurses who don’t want to take part in abortions.  And we should protect those who do not want vaccines with aborted human tissue injected into their children, Muslims and Orthodox Jews who do not want vaccines with pig products, vegans who do not want  vaccines made with ANY animal products, or the conscientious parent who does their own research and comes to the conclusion that ALL VACCINES ARE A REALLY BAD IDEA.

Is it clear by this time I believe all of you are capable of coming to your own conclusions about vaccines?  I have my own opinion and I am happy to share, but I will not impose my will upon any other person.

Here’s why this is such a BIG DEAL.

The House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy (R – California) is one of the people who worked on this project.  Do you think he is unaware of the draconian mandatory vaccine law in California which took away religious and philosophical (conscience) exemptions?

This new division at HHS is a HOME RUN for all those who believe in HEALTH FREEDOM.

In a press release put out on Thursday by the HHS Office for Civil Rights, Director Roger Severino said,

“Law protecting religious freedom and conscience rights are just empty words on paper if they aren’t enforced.  No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by one’s deepest moral or religious convictions, and the new division will help guarantee that victims of unlawful discrimination find justice.  For too long, governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection, but change is coming and it begins here and now.”

In an article for TownHall, House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy was very explicit.

“In the past this office sent the message, now is not the time for freedom, it is time for you to conform.  What a difference one year makes.”

Dr. Everett Piper of Oklahoma Wesleyan University echoed these comments and brought a laugh to the group by noting what a difference it was to be thanking Health and Human Services rather than suing them.

The acting Health and Human Services Secretary, Eric Hargan, also had some remarkable words:

“For too long too many of these healthcare practitioners have been bullied and discriminated against because of their religious beliefs and moral convictions leaving many of them to wonder whether they have a future in our healthcare system.  When faithful Americans are bullied out of the public square and out of public service, when bigotry is allowed to flourish, we all lose.”

(“Members of Congress Explain Need for New HHS Conscience and Religious Freedom Division,” By Lauretta Brown, TownHall, January 18, 2018.)

The lawyer in me recognizes expansive legal language and my little litigator’s heart rejoices with the arguments I can spin from it.

What about the HIPPA Privacy rights of nurses who decline the flu vaccine and are required to wear masks, thus broadcasting their vaccination status?  What of nurses who are given the choice of getting a vaccine or losing their job?

The new web-site for the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division even has a convenient portal to file a complaint and encourages ANYBODY who feels their religious rights or conscience have been violated to file a complaint.

What about all those California parents living under the mandatory childhood vaccine law?  Aren’t their religious and conscience rights being violated?

President Trump has given us a tool to use against tyranny.  My dear brothers and sisters, it is time to pick up this weapon and use it against our common enemy.

Things Are Getting Worse, Not Better: Round Ups, Checkpoints and National ID Cards 

We are not supposed to be living in a “show me your papers” society. Despite this, the U.S. government has recently introduced measures allowing police and other law enforcement officials to stop individuals (citizens and noncitizens alike), demand they identify themselves, and subject them to patdowns, warrantless searches, and interrogations. These actions fly in the face of longstanding constitutional safeguards forbidding such police state tactics.

Silence Is Betrayal: Get Up, Stand Up, Speak Up for Your Rights 

They—the powers-that-be, the Deep State, the controllers, the financiers, the war hawks—want us in a state of civil unrest. They want the riots and the mob violence and the political discord and the state of panic. They want us to fight each other and be incapable of taking a united stand against tyranny. They want us silent and subservient. We have been silent too long. We have been silent for all the wrong reasons.

Justice Denied: The Government Is Not Going to Save Us 

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled: it will not hear the case of Young v. Borders. Despite the fact that a 26-year-old man was gunned down by police who banged on the wrong door at 1:30 am, failed to identify themselves as police, and then repeatedly shot and killed the innocent homeowner who answered the door while holding a gun in self-defense, the justices of the high court refused to intervene to address police misconduct.

A Tale of Two Americas: Where the Rich Get Richer and the Poor Go to Jail 

This is the tale of two Americas, where the rich get richer and the poor go to jail.

Amazon Go stores could watch, listen, and remember your every move

There’s a lot of excitement about Amazon Go, the company’s new kind of grocery store that lets customers take what they need and leave without ever waiting in line, but there weren’t a whole lot of specifics on how this system works. An Amazon patent filed in 2014 gives us a glimpse of how this could all operate, and it involves — you betcha — hella cameras.

The patent describes a system where cameras could capture you as you walk into the store, then identify who you are based on an ID card that’s associated with your Amazon account (in Amazon Go’s case, an app that you scan when you enter). Facial recognition may also be used.

Once you’re in the store, cameras could follow you around as you navigate the aisles to see where you’re browsing and what items you pick up. “The user’s location within the materials handling facility and identification of the inventory location within the user’s location may also be determined,” the patent details. “Microphones may record sounds made by the user and the computing resource(s) may process those sounds to determine a location of the user.” In addition to microphones, Amazon also listed cellular triangulation as a potential method for locating a customer’s location.


As you’re shopping, sensors in the inventory shelves monitor when which items are being picked up. The sensors watch for whether the item gets put back down on the shelf or not, and may even check if the weight of the item changes from its original state. This is likely designed so people are correctly charged if they pick up a food or drink and begin consuming them while they’re still in the store.

Static cameras watching the shelf also determine whether multiples of the same item are taken, such as several sticks of gum or a few bags of chips. If you pick up several bags of chips just to get the one on the inside, the camera is supposed to know that you ended up putting the other bags of chips back as well. If Amazon is not confident about how many items you took or what exactly you took (i.e., a Colgate versus Crest toothbrush) it may end up confirming with you to charge the right amount.

The cameras can even go so far as to determine your skin tone color. The patent says this is used to identify the shopper’s hand to see whether they actually pick up anything off a shelf, but combine that with the fact that Amazon knows what you’re buying and who you are down to your skin color and this is pretty next-level market research data. (Not to mention… kind of creepy?)

The patent provides a good look at how Amazon Go could work, but there are still some unanswered questions: what if you go shopping with a friend and they pick up something and hand it to you? Whose account gets charged for that item? How does Amazon determine if two people who enter the store together are family members in the same household account? What happens if they separate in the store and leave at different times? We’ve reached out to Amazon for clarification, but the company is not currently offering press interviews.

It’s important to note that these are all just ways Amazon could implement the technology — this is not the final version of what is going to be done in-store, which has only opened in beta to Amazon employees. Still, the patent does describe basically everything the company teased with its announcement yesterday, so this seems rather close to how Amazon Go will work in practice. If you’re still curious, feel free to read through the full patent here.
