GO HOME - some days i think i am wearing a Tin Foil Cowboy Hat

Lavoy's brandTinFoilCowboyHat.com, page 2. If there is real cause for hope, for real change, we must be ready and able to do our part. "InfoWars" are real, and are the most important war of this generation. For the first time, change may be at hand. The more we know, and help others discover, the more prepared we will be whenever opportunities to aid this process of awakening arise. Below are links to some of the best sources of information I have found to help with awareness and to recognize productive courses of action when they become available.

NationalLibertyAlliance.org. The purpose of NLA is to facilitate an education, organization and communication in order to empower the People on the grassroots level by building Jury Administrations composed of four People in each county, these positions are paid career positions.

Fully Informed Jury Association. The FIJA works to:
• Inform potential jurors of their traditional, legal authority to refuse to enforce unjust laws
• Inform potential jurors that they cannot be required to check their consciences at the courthouse door
• Inform potential jurors that they cannot be punished for their verdicts
• Inform everyone that juror veto—jury nullification—is a peaceful way to protect human rights against corrupt politicians and government tyranny

On the Grand Jury - The Supreme Court states that the independent grand jury’s purpose is not only to investigate possible criminal conduct, but to act as a “protector of citizens against arbitrary and oppressive governmental action.”

Jurors' Handbook - A Citizens Guide to Jury Duty

State Language on Jury Nullification - Citizens Must Claim Rights: Founders Gave Juries
the Right to Determine Law

If you are called for Jury Duty Don't worry! Be happy! You can do more "political good" as a juror than in practically any other way as a citizen: Your vote on the verdict is also a measure of public opinion on the law itself.
The primary function of the independent juror is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from tyrannical abuses of power by government. The Constitution guarantees you the right to trial by jury. This means that government must bring its case before a jury of The People if government wants to deprice any person of life, liberty, or property. Jurors can say no to government tyranny by refusing to convict.

Julian AssangeThe Dangers of Telling the Truth: Snowden, Assange, and Manning. One of them has been tortured; another is surrounded by armed men and trapped; and the third is hiding ten thousand miles away, in fear for his life. And what were their crimes? Telling the truth. They released the truth about what they saw happening. And the gigantic operations are threatening their lives because they do not want you to know the truth." " " • Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective •

Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning are treated as terrorists and criminals in U.S., but elsewhere in the world they are celebrated as heroes in the fight against corruption and global surveillance. From prison where she is serving 35 years, US soldier Chelsea Manning (born Bradley Manning) was convicted in 2013 on charges relating to the Espionage Act for leaking US intelligence and military documents to Wikileaks. Edward Snowden is evading extradition to the US by taking asylum in Russia. He released classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) to journalists revealing the scale of the US government’s global surveillance capabilities.
All the while, WikiLeaks editor in chief Julian Assange keeps publishing what governments are really doing while Italian artist Davide Dormino stands on an empty chair in his installation “Anything to Say?”being detained in the Ecuadorian embassy for years. Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning “had the courage to say no to the intrusion of global surveillance and to lies that lead to war. They chose to lose the comfort zone of their lives to tell the truth.” As this struggle continues, the torch for transparency and courage that kindled hearts and has sparked public debate keeps shedding light on the state of the world we live in. A statue recognising the courage of the three whistleblowers stands in Geneva, Switzerland. The Italian sculptor Davide Dormino stands on the empty chair of his installation “Anything to Say?” urging people to follow their example, saying “the fourth chair is empty because it is our chair--take a stand, because your liberty is at stake.” The statues have been on a world tour. • euronews, May 2015 • yournewswire.com August, 2016 •

Hollywood. The Monopolization of Heroes by the State. US government agencies are major players in Hollywood. The Independent found that the Pentagon backed more than 1100 movies – 900 of them between 2005 and 2017 – including Flight 93, Ice Road Truckers, and Army Wives. The book, National Security Cinema: The Shocking New Evidence of Government Control in Hollywood, catalogs many more, and shows that the government suppressed plot lines about illegal arms sales, the CIA dealing in drugs, creation of bioweapons by the military, the interaction between private armies and oil companies, the treatment of minorities by the government, torture, and the failure to prevent 9/11. Matthew Alford and Robbie Graham cataloged still more in 2009. Freeman's Perspective, Jul 31st, 2018.

How Capitalism Can Fix Health Care The cost savings and improvements in health-care quality that can be realized when a physician escapes the crazy system we have now, which people mistakenly think is a free market, are staggering. A mind-blowing interview with Dr. Josh Umbehr, who accepts neither government money nor private insurance, and keeps prices of medical care at a level you'll hardly believe. Dr. Josh Umbehr operates a concierge family practice in Wichita, Kansas, and counsels doctors about making the transition to direct care, bypassing insurance and government, through Atlas.MD. He ran for lieutenant governor of Kansas in 2014 on a ticket with his father, Keen, at the top. (See also IAmDirectCare.com.)

License to Work. A National Study of Burdens from Occupational Licensing. An abuse of power by states that hits entrepeneurs, the low- and middle-income vocational jobs the hardest. Institute for Justice, 2012.
Politicians Don't Need a License to Practice. In a major victory for common sense, a group of cosmetologists defeated an insanely stupid regulation passed by the state of Louisiana. Louisiana, just like the other 49 states in the Land of the Free, governs licensing requirements for hundreds of professions, ranging from athletic trainers to tour guides to barbers and cosmetologists. And most of the time the licensing requirements are just plain idiotic. In Louisiana, the State Board of Cosmetology had required an unbelievable 750 hours of training (which costs thousands of dollars) simply to be able to thread eyebrows. But there is one occupation I noticed that is conspicuously absent from this list. And it’s a big one. Not a single state in the union has a licensing requirement for this profession. Politicians, the people who have the power to declare war, pass idiotic legislation, waste taxpayer funds, tell us what we can /cannot put in our own bodies, and regulate every aspect of our lives, don’t even have to be literate.

USA Debt Clock (real time)

We May Be Approaching the Big Financial Reckoning

The national debt will exceed $25 trillion by September 30, 2020. This isn’t some wild conspiracy theory, it's official government projections published February 01, 2018, by the United States Department of Treasury. Not only does the US owe the greatest amount of debt ever accumulated by a single nation in human history, but $25 trillion is larger than every other nation's debts in the world combined. For the past several years, US government has always been able to rely on the usual suspects to loan them money and buy up all the debt, namely – the Chinese, the Japanese, and the Federal Reserve. But now all three of those lenders are out of the game. "At $21 trillion, the national debt is growing 36% faster than the US economy." ~ Simon Black, the Sovereign Man, March 2018

  • Interest per Year: $443,833,210,730
  • Interest per Second: $14,074
  • Population: 327,744,186
  • Debt per Citizen: $63,092
