A simple plan to get the word out about …
the story in World Net Daily re: Doreen Hendrickson’s historic free speech case
No, by aggregate I’m not suggesting we inflict some new form of collective belonging on our poor heroine. 🙂 Rather, let’s each of us pick one or three of the top ten political news aggregators—like the Drudge Report, who operate as search engines of top news stories worldwide according to a user’s preferences (that’s what an ‘aggregator’ does)—to pick up the historic Doreen story by courageous reporter Alex Newman of World Net Daily (WND). We the people MUST take charage in getting out the word. Because quite obviously, the mainstream media are in the business of systematically blockading any story promising any semblance of truth, justice, and liberty to the human race.
The Aggregation Procedure—Please, Everyone at least Submit to Drudge
This is a simple procedure that will work. Pete Hendrickson, Shane Trejo, and a few others have come up with this plan. So let’s all just submit the Doreen story, as a minimum, to the Drudge Report, which is one of the more liberty-oriented of the giant aggregators.
- Go to the Drudge Report lead page here, then scroll to the lower right hand side, where you see a ‘Send News Tips to Drudge’ box.
- In that box, enter a variation of the following message: “Federal judge-prosecution team suborns perjury of Michigan woman, Doreen Hendrickson, in historic First Amendment case that can bring down the IRS: http://www.wnd.com/2016/02/woman-jailed-for-refusing-federal-order-to-commit-perjury/.“
- Press the Submit button.
That’s all there is to it. For conventional media, they used to say, “You’ll never BE if you’re not on TV.” In alternative media, you can make the same statement wrt Drudge or some of the other large aggregators or Websites… e.g. “Your story won’t budge if not picked up by Drudge.” So be it.
I personally subscribe to http://www.alternativenewsproject.org/, an aggregator service out of Australia, for $4 a month AU. And have submitted the Doreen WND story to it, as well. Here is a link to the ‘Ten Best Political News Aggregators,’ on about.com. I’m listing the direct links to each of them here (so you won’t have to go to the about.com page first):
- PoliticsToday (app)
So, most of the above aggregator sites have a means for at least submitting a message. [Some even solicit ‘tips’ from readers.] Be patient and copy and paste the message above into as many aggregator ‘tip’ boxes that you have time for. Under the next two headings, I’m including a) my personal letter that I sent to my entire ‘network’ early in the week, and b) some general comments on creating an immensely powerful popular ‘word of mouth’ tool to get the freedom message out with AUTHORITY, and break the mainstream media barrier cloud once and for all. [Done right, the mind-control media evaporates.]
My Personal Letter Announcing the Doreen Article in World Net Daily
Doreen Hendrickson’s historic free speech case is lead article in World Net Daily!
“In what observers and attorneys believe is unprecedented in American history, federal prosecutors sought to compel a person not only to speak, but to affirm under penalty of perjury the truthfulness of something the person did not believe to be true, all to advance the government’s desired narrative in court.”
My Coffee Coaster guest column excerpt is here: http://brianrwright.com/CoffeeCoasterBlog/?p=7206.
This is an extremely courageous and timely article by young journalist Alex Newman that thoroughly describes the major Constitutional issues at stake. If Doreen’s conviction stands, any government official may order you to say or do anything on penalty of remote imprisonment… or torture, whatever it wants to do; the entire trial was wholly bereft of anything resembling, well, law. [Doreen is incarcerated in West Virginia, 535 miles from her home in Commerce, Michigan.]
Ask yourself why—for a case of this magnitude, with the entire American legal system on the chopping block, with Joe Everyman’s Constitutionally protected rights hanging by a long gray hair, the last bastion of your freedom going up in smoke before you—not a single mainstream media outlet chose to convey a single word! Not one.
Further, not a single supposed-civil liberties and justice advocacy group—from the ACLU to the Libertarian Party—gave the story so much as a by your leave. Or any of our fabled alternative news sources (except WND). Whose side are they on?
Please share either of the above links with all your networks. As Doreen fares, so fare we all. Let’s bring all the lawless ones to justice for malicious prosecution, wrongful imprisonment, and egregious Constitutional violence. Please also note the following message from Pete:
I would VERY much appreciate everyone visiting that page, sharing that page widely so that WND understands it did a very good and important thing here, and weighing in with comments on Doreen’s behalf, in praise of WND and Alex Newman for having the courage to publish it, and responding appropriately to any troll comments that get posted, of which there are sure to be many as word gets out. Thanks, Pete.
Finally, Doreen and Pete continue to rely on your donations for the legal fees associated with the appeal and major expenses entailed from the ongoing work to free her and to provide to her some measure of comfort from family visits and meeting her medical needs. Her gofundme page is here: http://gofundme.com/DoreenRelief. Contact her and help her with the commisary fund as shown in the PS. Thanks.

A New Freedom Network Concept That can Fundamentally Rearchitect Our Society
This idea harkens back to the 1950s when telephones became commonplace in middle class homes and switching technologies became routinely automated… i.e. you didn’t need an operator to physically make your connection. The political and charitable cause world soon saw an important method for getting important messages out to everyone who wanted to be part of the action: it was called a phone tree or call tree. [Network marketers used similar methods, and still do.]
The modern literary network analogy to a phone tree is an email distribution list, basically a grouping of your contacts according to their relationship to you. As a writer and a general cause sort of fellow, I decided to systematize my email distribution lists when I wrote the book After 9/11 Truth. Chapter 8 described how I constructed my dist lists, and I’ve uploaded that description here. Now when I receive word of an important discovery or development in Freedom World, I send that word out via a bcc (blind carbon copy) distribution to my selected groups.
For example, the above article on Doreen being written up in World Net Daily I sent out far and wide to all my groups. [Note: in general you want to keep such messages shorter, maybe a paragraph or two with a key link and perhaps an image.] I also sent a similar message to my Facebook Groups, of which I belong to 20-25. It took me roughly four hours to build my email dist lists. I’m on the high end of the numbers because I’m 66 and have developed a number of contacts over the years—so the total number of ‘personal’ contacts via the distlists is ~400 names.
Now, I know only one other liberty activist individual, David Lonier, who has systematized his email dist lists along similar lines to mine. He’s also effective. Let me just say, that, in the previous few months, for a couple of liberty related gofundmes (crowdfunding gofundme.com), my own modest distribution of the gofundme message, then posting it to my Facebook Groups, I’m estimating resulted in roughly half the contributions received. [Not bragging. The uniqueness of the circumstance was one of the reasons for success.] Consider then the potential of such systematic messaging—if ‘all’ the liberty people do it—for profound positive change.
Let’s say an average number of distribution of names is 200 and that half of those on each individual’s list similarly compose and propagate simple, effective truth-justice-liberty messages. Right now, I send out 400 messages, with no propagation beyond my own list. Assuming half of all lists adopt the same distribution practice as I do, and the chain starts with 200 messages. Then total number of messages for three ‘cycles’ is 200 x 100 x 50 = 1,000,000. A cool million vs. 400. Do you see the power of natural distribution?
Yes, some details need to be worked out: message quality, network maintenance, security, and so on. Also, how do we actually build the network and encourage people to find mutual success with it. I’ll be giving it much thought. The attraction of email treeing is not only the magnitude and prospect of many hands making light work, but its person-to-person quality. If anyone cares to discuss, please leave a comment on this page. Thanks.
PS: You can also Tweet, but Twitter is more appropriate for social celebrities… i.e. those everyone in the media already pays attention to.

Brian, I tried the drudge report site but cannot tell you if I got the message submitted- it kept going blank half way through my message. I tried to shorten the text each time thinking it had to be short. I tried. Blessings, Barry Brooks 9725231344
