Dear Readers: Brian Wright passed away in early 2023; he now lives forever in our hearts. A lifelong defender of liberty and nonviolence, Brian wanted his websites kept active so readers may enjoy his prolific columns, book & movie reviews, tributes, and evolving thoughts over the past decades. ~Rose Wright
On July 2nd, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order mandating the wearing of face masks across the state, whether indoors or outdoors, when six feet cannot be maintained between people. In the governor’s decree, he cited a rise in Covid cases, a rise in test positivity, and a rise in hospitalizations as justification to force people to cover their faces in public.
The move is not only a violation of the civil liberties of all Texans. Abbott may have based his executive order on inaccurate information about a “rise” in Covid cases due to the Texas State Department of Health Services changing the definition of what constitutes a “Covid case.”
Thanks goes to Collin County Judge Chris Hill for blowing the whistle on what appears to be a move in mid-May to redefine what was a “Covid” case to open the door to a massive increase – all to match the mainstream media line that a “second wave” was on the way.
In a Commissioners Court hearing for Collin County on May 18th, it was revealed that while previously the determination of a Covid “case” was a confirmed test result, the definition was suddenly changed to count “probable” cases as “cases.” At the same time, the threshold for determining “probable” was lowered to a ridiculous level.

What follows is a summary of key points from a recent broadcast ofThe HighWire by Del Bigtree. I cannot recommend strongly enough that we all abandon the Pharma-mainstream media and learn the facts about CV from the HighWire and other solid alternative sources.
I’m also going to provide links to other key sites and pages that have come to my attention since the 4/23 livestream [I believe this one is up (so far) on YouTube], along with some discussion. The “Corona World Order (CWO)”—I thank James Corbett for that designation—and the people’s resistance to it ARE THE most crucial issue of our day… and the crisis is unfolding as we speak. It’s quite simple: If CWO is sustained, independent humanity as we know it ends. If we defeat it, the Independents [http://bit.ly/2rdIJ9Q_Truman_Prophecy_Print] survive, but we still have our work cut out for us.

1) Recent CV deaths/cases studies dictate IMMEDIATE END to global shutdown
[More such studies from respected establishment institutions are in the pipeline.] Two randomized studies and a study-informed model have been submitted to peer review (and the USC one reported via mainstream via the 4/21 presidential task force briefing):
USC and LA County Public Health, LA County–CV infection rate 28-50 times higher than currently accepted number [John Roberts, Fox News, who has just heard of the USC study was caught on hot mic, someone asks if it’s the ‘h’ (hoax) word, Roberts says no, he doesn’t think it’s a hoax only that the CV death rate is on order of a low average flu season (0.1 to 0.2%), then asks prez adviser Birx about the study’s implications, she dodges question
Stanford University, Santa Clara County–infection rate 50-85 times higher than currently accepted number.
Private Company, CodonCode, Massachusetts–model and data show infection rate 50-100 times higher than currently accepted number.
Implication: The true infection number when extrapolated and compared to the whole US population and (CDC-explicitly OVERREPORTED) numbers of covid cases and deaths is that CV deaths per cases = 0.11% to 0.22%, NOT the 4.3% ratio that the CDC has been using. [Flu average = 0.13%. Bad flu e.g. 2017-2018 = 0.5%.] US Senator Rand Paul speaks to these new studies and facts on the US Senate floor. Interview with Minnesota state senator Dr. Scott Jensen, who similarly confirms return to full commerce as immediately imperative. Continue reading →
The government doesn’t want you to read
by Jesse Ventura
Review by Brian R. Wright
Review first published 12/16/2011.
Nice little compendium of what many of us longtimers in the Truth and Freedom Movement (TFM) have known for some time, but perhaps not realized the source material for. The Governor has performed a wonderful public service by compiling 63 documents—actually 63 sets of documents—on US government (USG) crimes, atrocities, and coverups … and precursors of USG crimes, atrocities, and coverups. Everything from JFK deciding to pull out the troops from Vietnam (pretext for his assassination) to the USG letting a major pharmaceutical company distribute a pesticide for spraying that imperiled the honeybees is covered.
If you believe in things like making a pact with the devil, you might say that our own intelligence agencies did just that at the end of World War 2. That’s when we started giving many of Hitler’s top henchmen not only sanctuary in our country, but putting these same Nazis to work for us. The Cold War with the Soviet Union was beginning—and the excuse was that we needed every bit of expertise, scientific and otherwise, that we could get.
It almost seems to me that the Cold War was staged so the weapons manufacturers and others could make money off it. Otherwise, how could we go from being allies with the Russians all through the war to their becoming our bitter enemies almost overnight? As Colonel Fletcher Prouty once said, “Nothing just happens, everything is planned.”

All These Docs Are Government Docs
In fact, the book should have been named more accurately, 63 Sets of Government Documents that the Government Didn’t Really Plan on You Reading. Most of them were classified at one time or another, but some of them slipped thru the bureaucratic cracks, and others were obtained via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. What I like about Jesse Ventura writing something like this—with Dick Russell—is that he sounds like a fairly ordinary guy. Not some Alex Jones or Jim Marrs knowledgeable expert who has been studying the invisible government and Men of the Power Sickness (MOPS) forever. For example, when he discusses the Pentagon’s non-response on 9/11:
The question that’s haunted me from day one is how come the world’s biggest military superpower was somehow oblivious to rogue airliners in American air space for more than an hour, and our top brass seemed so befuddled in terms of dealing with hijackers apparently using these four planes as flying bombs. Why couldn’t our fighter jets intercept at least one of them? — page 217
Over the weekend, President Trump celebrated firing more than 100 missiles into Syria by Tweeting, “Mission Accomplished!” They say if you cannot learn from history you are condemned to repeat it. So I guess we are repeating it.
We all remember that “Mission Accomplished” was the banner behind then-President Bush as he gloated aboard a US navy ship that the war in Iraq had been won. After his “victory,” however, some 4,000 US military personnel were killed, perhaps a million Iraqis were killed, and the country’s infrastructure and social fabric were so badly destroyed that they probably can never be repaired.
Actually, there is much about the US attack on Syria that reminds us of Iraq.
Donald Trump will need major help to see the light of liberty
Ron Paul, Campaign for Liberty
“So what does Donald Trump’s election as President mean?”
When a close friend of mine asked me that question shortly after the results poured in on election night, I tried to be as fair and objective as I could.
It means the American people are angry. With the rejection of Hillary Clinton, it means the American people are telling Washington, D.C. and its apologists in the press exactly where they can shove the status quo.
It means you and I are facing some real opportunities — and some very real dangers.
The American people have spoken, and they are fed up with business as usual.
Lately, there has been a great deal of petty bickering going on between libertarians and members of the alt-right. This turf war is being waged primarily through social media, and much of the time, it is centered around disputes on contentious issues such as multiculturalism and open borders. Instead of arguing about the specifics of these nuanced issues and further dividing the two factions, libertarians and members of the alt-right should find common cause against on their extremely dangerous, increasingly deranged, and virulently statist enemies of the political left.
Sadly, many libertarians have reacted to the alt-right with much of the same admonition as the left. They have repeated talking points straight out of CNN, led by the once relevant Jack Hunter and other creatures of Washington D.C. swamp. These hacks are only concerned about protecting their bread and butter and refuse to see the bigger picture. At the very least, libertarians should be cackling feverishly at the Idiocracy-meets-the-Twilight-Zone new political normal that has resulted due to Trumpmania. Libertarians should appreciate the bizarre and ruinous impact that the alt-right is having on the body politic at large. Continue reading →
How to resist federal tyranny in the 21st century
by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.
One of the main points of view from my dear ol’ mom, before she left us, was: “We need to take power out of the hands of the federal government and put it back to the states and the people.” A lifelong teacher—and sadly a holdout for government action to provide basic education—she nonetheless saw the transfer of wealth and control of the system to the Leviathan of the federal government as the source of all its main problems. So, too, with virtually every public issue: crime, civil liberties, war, economics, urban deterioration, the whole enchilada.
Further, she was talking like this probably a decade before the modern Nullification movement came into prevalence. Mainly via the Tenth Amendment Center, and scholars such as Tom Woods. Woods, a fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute, has a number of books to his credit, including a treatise on how the Catholic Church built Western civilization (! sic). But I remember his incisive point and counterpoint in favor of Dr. Ron Paul during the 2012 presidential bid. Good stuff for sure. And I’m glad he’s on our side in this stellar movement to tell the federal government where it can stick its unconstitutional edicts. Continue reading →
