Donut Whole: Two Would-Be Supremes, Either a Disaster for Liberty

Scuttle Raymond Kethledge as Job One, Kavanaugh is Bad, Too

Scuttling Raymond Kethledge Is JOB ONE For This Rule-Of-Law Community (Updated)
It’s “Get Busy– RIGHT NOW– Like You Really Mean To Win” time, people…

LAST TUESDAY I ADDED A SPECIAL POST to the Mid-Edition Update which had been posted the day before. The post was prompted by Donald Trump’s release of his “short list” of candidates to replace Anthony Kennedy of the Supreme Court, among which was Raymond Kethledge, a Sixth Circuit judge responsible for the outrageous, Constitution-defying ruling in Doreen’s appeal issued in 2016.

You can and should see that article here. What it presents remains the first order of business for this community, in my view, and I think if you read that post through you will both understand why I say this, and will agree with me about the critical importance of the effort in which I am asking everyone to participate.

The only thing I will add to that post here is a recommendation of a careful re-reading of the article below, with which the June 25, 2018 newsletter began. The proposed elevation of Kethledge– even if he ultimately is not the actual nominee– is as perfect an example of the point I am making in this previous post as there ever could be.

BTW: This campaign remains as vital into the next several weeks or months even if Trump puts someone else forward as his first choice when he makes that announcement. The chosen candidate may be rejected, and Kethledge might then come up for the slot. Continue reading

Donut Whole: Saki on Cats

The Achievement of the Cat
Referred by Rose

Saki (HH Munro) has fascinated me since 10th grade, so prolific the volume of his literary works considering his short life (46).  I finally got his fat collection of essays — all super-short, entertaining, sassy or thought-provoking — with a general preference for all animals over adults (particularly aunts lol) … This below is one of his few more serious ones, his insightful grasp and appreciation of the nature of cats   — rose   

Who knew? A gap in my education to be sure. In 9th grade, I’d begun my Independents’ Journey, from a Bookmobile in Timbuktu, Oklahoma, where I picked up a book on Barry Goldwater and took up that cause leading to several more. The sad story is I missed so much of the artistic side of the human potential. I’m wholly on board with the sentiments expressed by Mr. Saki here… — Ed.

The Achievement of the Cat

In the political history of nations it is no uncommon experience to find States and peoples which but a short time since were in bitter conflict and animosity with each other, settled down comfortably on terms of mutual goodwill and even alliance. The natural history of the social developments of species affords a similar instance in the coming-together of two once warring elements, now represented by civilised man and the domestic cat.

The fiercely waged struggle which went on between humans and felines in those far-off days when sabre-toothed tiger and cave lion contended with primeval man, has long ago been decided in favour of the most fitly equipped combatant—the Thing with a Thumb—and the descendants of the dispossessed family are relegated today, for the most part, to the waste lands of jungle and veld, where an existence of self-effacement is the only alternative to extermination.

But the felis catus, or whatever species was the ancestor of the modern domestic cat (a vexed question at present), by a master-stroke of adaptation avoided the ruin of its race, and ‘captured’ a place in the very keystone of the conqueror’s organization. For not as a bond-servant or dependent has this proudest of mammals entered the human fraternity; not as a slave like the beasts of burden, or a humble camp-follower like the dog. Continue reading

Donut Wholes: Brian Wright Campaign for State Rep, 2018

BRIAN R. WRIGHT
38TH DISTRICT STATE REP
2018 CAMPAIGN

This column is my campaign brochure, and the three-panel brochure is located here:

http://brianRwright.com/BW38th.pdf

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts… Can’t Lose!

Some will recognize this Dillon Panthers’ team cheer from the NBC series, Friday Night Lights. These fighting words express why I’m running… to help us to:

  • SEE thru the ‘Barrier Cloud
  • IGNITE our independent spirits
  • WIN by discarding our self-chains

“We have met the enemy and he is us.” Political problems start and end with the individual. If YOU choose to think for yourself, WE win… no matter who takes office.

High Level: Independents Rising

In 2016, I wrote a novel, The Truman Prophecy, which foresees a benevolent, abundant future for human beings of independent consciousness—Independents. We achieve this “Billion + Points  of Light” society per The Wizard of Oz (1939) analogy:

  1. Toto retracting the Wizard’s curtain,
  2. Dorothy chastising the Wizard,

  … and The Truman Show (1998) analogy:

  1. Truman realizing and rejecting being a ’Collared’ slave living for others.

So 1) Truth, 2) Justice, 3) Liberty. You can’t have one without the others. The key is easy, and we can all do it: lose the inner chains, the self-removing mind-control collars that Teacher.gov clamped on our necks in kindergarten… and “Indie up.”

As described in the positions section,  Michigan’s success lies in “People Taking Charge” of their government via First Principles’ grand juries.

Diane McGilvery, former two-term mayor of Whitehouse, Ohio, has written the core book on American First Principles, What is the Foundation?, and my companion piece is  The Accountability Project, for practical rollout of people’s grand juries in Michigan. Continue reading

Donut Whole: Simple Grand Jury Template for Michigan, Etc.

Simple, Practical Grand Juries
By Brian R. Wright

Note: This column is the standin for my book until it’s done: The Accountability Project, which addresses the the problem of political corruption in Michigan with a simple, practical rollout of people’s First Principles’ independent grand juries. Most of the key ideas for implementation are included here, but not the heartwrenching personal stories of a mere handful of the thousands of living, loving, peaceful human beings crushed by public officials running amok on their abuse of power and unspeakable crimes of corruption.

When the book is complete, the above paragraph will include the hyperlink to it.
[From ‘notes on a napkin,’ 03/18/18. The idea is to proceed from our country’s First Principles and have the states, then the federal government, enable, facilitate, and obey (not own, control, and dictate) the people’s institution of grand juries. Note: This grand jury template and federal derivatives will be featured in my upcoming advocacy book,
The Accountability Project. — bw]

First Principles’ Grand Juries
Phase 1 Implementation–State-County Level Jurisdictions
To be written in form of a bill for the Michigan legislature to pass:

[Name: The Accountability Act… additional verbiage]
[Purpose: Uphold the people’s First Principles against corrupt government]

It is anticipated and hereby accepted by the legislature that:

  1. Each of the 83 counties of Michigan shall accommodate a continuously sitting people’s independent grand jury (SIGJ) for exercising the people’s authority to directly monitor, investigate, and indict gross misconduct in office, violation of oaths, and abrogation of American First Principles (“We hold these truths…”) by public officials.
  2. Each sitting independent grand jury shall be composed, voluntarily, of 25 good and lawful persons who are not government employees or solely beneficiaries of state largesse, and who are Constitution-knowledge-and-fealty tested, randomly selected by lottery, acting with supreme authority over all state justice officials in the jurisdiction.
  3. The SIGJ grand jurors shall be compensated from the state treasury at 80% of the governor’s prorated salary for each session, and shall select a foreman, who shall select an independent counsel (IC) and private investigators (PIs) as needed; foreman and ICs/PIs shall be compensated at 100% of governor’s prorated salary.
  4. Session length, hours, working conditions, workflow, security and meeting requirements, empaneling of additional special grand juries, interface protocols to state and county officials, and so on shall be the prerogative of the SIGJ and developing common IGJ practice, except that as a general requirement it is anticipated grand juror identity will not be publicly known and full cost to the state treasury for all SIGJ and subjury sessions shall not exceed <$2 million> per year [January 2018 USD].
  5. The SIGJ of each county, as its primary mission, shall hear and rule on consideration of all reasonable complaints of corruption or criminal behavior of public officials and accomplices; it is the civic duty of all adult residents to report violations of oath of office and gross misconduct in office to the SIGJ.
  6. The SIGJ of each county, as its secondary mission, shall hear and rule on consideration of all reasonable filings by state justice officials alleging a crime by one individual(s) against another individual(s); the SIGJ for such person-to-person cases may either decide to itself investigate and send indictments back to the justice officials or set up a special SIGJ composed in the same manner as the primary SIGJ.
  7. State/county justice officials–judges, prosecutors, police, executives, etc.–work at behest of the SIGJ; when ordered or requested by SIGJ foreman and ICs/PIs to assist in investigating a case they do so as top priority; these officials, as a top priority, also promptly effect any public official indictments by bringing such individuals before a suitably composed and informed petit jury.
  8. The SIGJ retains full authority over the formation and function of the petit jury(s), assuring that all individuals–public or private–are accorded a fair trial, also by their peers, which shall have the same composition requirements as people’s grand juries, i.e. “not government employees or primarily beneficiaries of state largesse, and who are Constitution-knowledge-and-fealty tested, randomly selected by lottery…”
  9. Petit juries, like grand juries, do not belong to the state justice system, they belong to the people themselves, independently; judges, prosecutors, cops, etc., and defense attorneys are subservient to the petit jury via the foreman, who shall have the benefit of selecting independent counsel for aid and assist in assuring state officials conform to First Principles’ protocol and practice. Petit juries render verdicts based on conscience; they may judge law and fact, and nullify a prosecution at will.
  10. Any county SIGJ or SIGJ-designated special grand jury shall have authority to investigate and indict state public officials for malfeasance applying within their counties. However, the Accountability Act anticipates formation of a sitting state-level grand jury by the same means and adhering to the same founding principles as the county SIGJ. It is anticipated the State SIGJ will also serve as referee for conflicts among county SIGJs or cross-county acts of public official corruption.[1]

Donut Dough: We Were What We Eat

Speed bump on the road to freedom from food addiction
By Brian R. Wright

Lo and behold, out in my part-time job as a medtech/driver, after, count ’em, SIX full days of abiding by the one meal per day (OMAD) prescription by a guy named WIL (What I’ve Learned): http://bit.ly/2rNkUVY_Fasting_OMAD_WIL.

But I made the mistake of buying a large—standard size today is 22 oz, remember how soft drinks all used to be 12 oz?—Pepsi vanilla-cherry carb-onated, caffeinated cola to pick me up for the leg home. Which must have helped to launch a sudden craving-based notion that I would stop and buy a Hot ‘n’ Ready pepperoni pizza from Little Caesars, some potato chips, then go home and eat until stuffage.

Binge junk food supper.

Actually, this is the first time I’ve stopped for a ready made pizza, and I was only expecting to get maybe three pieces for like $6. So I was kind of astonished that for only $5 they give me a grownup-sized eight pieces, shown above right with accouterments. Think about that for a minute: A six-inch turkey sub from Subway, which costs about the same, has roughly the same number of calories as a single piece of the Hot ‘n’ Ready above (~300). So in  calories per dollar, the majorly junk option is 800% more economical for the average consumer. Continue reading

Donut Whole: Oh Say Can’t You See…

My take on NFL and other pro sports’ players kneeling for the national anthem
by Brian R. Wright

Here are two articles by journalists/columnists I respect and they pretty much nail the issue, at least on the Independent-Individualist surface from which yours truly views the world:

Brandon Smith: “NFL Players Have a First Amendment Right to Act Like Little Bitches

“If NFL players refused to stand for the national anthem because they believed in the ideals it represents but felt that our government no longer represented those ideals, then I would be in full support of their motives. Obviously, this is not why they are protesting. If their motivation was about speaking against corrupt government, then they would have refused to stand for the anthem back when Barack Obama, a Constitution-wrecking cabana boy for the elites, was in office.”

Jon Rappoport: “An Open Letter to NFL Players: You’re Being Used

“In other articles, I’ve written about solutions to some of these problems. Here, I’ll simply say that if you NFL protestors want to make a difference, you need to stand up and do something harder than you’re doing now. Right now, you’re unwitting agents of NO CHANGE and racial divide-and-conquer.

“YOU’RE FOCUSING ON POLICE BRUTALITY, AS IF THAT’S THE DEEPEST PROBLEM IN BLACK INNER CITIES. It isn’t. So you’re leading people away from recognizing and admitting what the real problems are.

“What you’re doing now, men, isn’t going to work. You’re only going to sow more conflict.”

Proposed language for bill that goes the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S.720) one better:
The Anti Israel-Zionist Boycott Act
Satire by Brian R. Wright

A lot of talk in the media and on Capitol Hill these days in support of the so-called “Don’t Mess with Israel” bill, which would abrogate the United States Constitution in no uncertain terms and apply draconian penalties for standing on one’s First Principle rights when it comes to disrespecting our ally-supremo, the model-benevolent state of Israel. To my way of thinking, this Senate bill S.720, formally ‘Israel Anti-Boycott Act,’ doesn’t go far enough. In fact, using the same template as S.720, l have formulated a more thorough gutting of the Bill of Rights via an S.720 countermeasure, and suggested it to my august federal legislators…

The modifiable Libre Office document lies here. And below lies the html version for your consideration and, I hope, wide circulation:

The Anti Israel Zionism Boycott Act

[Congressional Bills <TBD> Congress]
[From the U.S. Government Publishing Office]
[<#TBD_Anti_Israel-Zionist_Boycott_Act> Introduced in either house]

<TBD> CONGRESS
<#TBD_Anti_Israel-Zionist_Boycott_Act>

To prohibit any support or expression of support for the state of Israel or the political philosophy/movement of Zionism by any individual or group within the United States and by any public official of the United States. Continue reading

Donut Whole: Hell is Coming for Breakfast

Are You Ready to Die?
By Paul Craig Roberts [Full original column posted here]

This column by PCR will perhaps go down in history as specifying the most crucial choice any of us faces regarding survival of the human species, as well as our ourselves. He is absolutely right that lunatics running the deep state of the United States have chosen a literally Satan-worshiping path that leads to imminent preemptive nuclear attack by the US against Russia and China or vice versa. PCR also notes that NO MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUT- LET HAS COVERED A SINGLE STORY showing that nuclear war is very likely months if not weeks away—NOT A SINGLE STORY! [Excuse me, one outlet, the Times Gazette of Ashland, Ohio, covered the statement by the Russian armed forces directorate official below that Russia has concluded that the United States intends a preemptive nuclear strike against Russia.]

Further—and this is my own observation—the minor premise of the syllogism[1] leads to the irrefutable conclusion that the Mainstream ‘Noise’ is of no value to humankind, and, in fact, is working to be instrumental in its annihilation. Ergo, everyone interested in human survival, and the truth about ANYTHING ELSE, needs to completely sever all Mainstream ‘Noise’ connections, ASAP! — Editor, brw

In George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel, 1984, information that no longer is consistent with Big Brother’s explanations is chucked down the Memory Hole. In the real American dystopia in which we currently live, the information is never reported at all. Continue reading
