02. Responsibility & Self-Government | Individual Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

Far too often humanity as a collective whole wants to give its power away and not take responsibility for what happens in this world. Rarely, do we honestly look at ourselves through the lens of “responsibility” – being “Source” consciousness for our direct experience of the world. There is no “world”. The “world as we see it” is a projection of our own consciousness – a Co-Creation with “Source” consciousness (or God). 


If one wishes to solve problems or make the world a better place, then we must begin with responsible self-improvement and self-government. Thou shalt not expect others beside ourselves, to do something that we are unwilling to do ourselves about problems in our world. A “victim”, of which there are plenty, may attempt to manipulate others into solving problems for us by projecting fear, guilt, shame and blame upon them. But this never actually works. 

Only a responsible, Co-Creator with Source can solve problems in this world. All perceived problems are originally created in the minds of human beings. If this is indeed so, then solving problems is about taking responsibility for having created them in the first place. Nothing is a problem until we perceive it as such and create it to be so. May one take responsibility, or “response-ability”, for creating, then solving problems.

The human desire to give away its power so as to feel safe has allowed a Power structure to develop over hundreds, if not thousands of years. This is now culminating into an ideological hybrid of fascism, socialism/communism, capitalism, statism. 

When the interests of the central banks, governments, corporations and media become one, fascism arises. Now, fascism has taken on many new faces with politicians, public health officials, legacy media and high-tech censors taking the lead towards a global totalitarian regime.

Humanity too often appears to be a herd of bewildered, lost sheep. “We the Sheeple” are too easily led by the self-appointed political shepherds and media pundits who lead us to our eventual enslavement, if not to our slaughter. This is the time for “We the People” to stop acting like sheep, like mind-controlled slaves and accept our birthright as Co-Creators on this beautiful planet, in a multidimensional universe of immense possibilities.

We the People must take our sovereign minds and power back and reclaim our inherent sovereignty under natural law.  Due to assuming others will do our thinking for us, the task will not be an easy or simple one. Too few have actually learned how to think, how to discern, discriminate or integrate, or even distinguish facts from fiction. The responsibility for reclaiming freedom and sovereignty, for taking back the reigns of self-government begins and ends with each of us. 

Think positively, constructively and proactively. Think and act with integrity and honesty. Question the status quo, question the mainstream and alternative narratives, question external authority and even question reality at every level – local, state, federal and international. 

In the 1960’s the banner cry of the countercultural, anti-war and pro-environmental movement was, “Question authority”. In the first decades of the 21st Century the banner cry should be “Question reality!”


Old friend, please share your wisdom and knowledge freely without divisiveness. Awaken those around you to the necessity of shaking off the chains of oppression from “external authority”, breaking the trance of mind control and manipulation which has descended like a storm cloud over much of the human race. Wake up humanity!

02. Breaking Through Fears & Comfort Zone | Individual Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

Fears must be confronted and challenged to be overcome. Some of us get so comfortable and used to our fears that we have accepted our fears as an unavoidable part of the family system. 

So long as our fears, beliefs and lifestyle go unchallenged or unquestioned, we may go about living half the life we are capable of.  When our fears are challenged, new possibilities open up around us. “One thing you can’t hide is when you’re crippled inside”.

“Plug the holes in yourself.” ~ Scott David

According to Coach Michael Connaway, each of us must break order and invite some chaos into our life to effectively challenge and face our fears. Furthermore, one must close the back door and any escape routes, step out of our comfort zone and face any abuse and co-dependency patterns if one is going to succeed at conquering our fears. 

Many people are more afraid of public speaking than of death. For example, facing a fear of public speaking requires stepping up to the podium and speaking publicly to overcome it. Apply this same strategy to each and every identifiable fear and you’ll be surprised how fearless you become.


In the eloquent words of David Icke, we are “imaginations of ourselves”. One can either create with fear, or create with love. One can either create with negative or with positive energy. Many of our fears once examined are simply “imagined fears” with little or no basis in reality. 

For example, one may fear strangers coming to our home, knocking on the door, then entering and robbing us. When we hear a strange, unfamiliar knock, but do not answer, the fear is reinforced over and over again. In our minds, one may imagine the stranger is dangerous, like a “wolf at the door”

But one will never know, or be able to confront our fear of “wolves”, unless one opens the door and sees for ourself that there is no wolf, no real threat there. We discovered that this was simply an “imagined fear”.  

Through our parents and the legacy media many of us are taught to be afraid of strangers. But the truth is, if we do not talk to strangers how will one ever make a new friend? 

Is it not curious how large people can be deathly afraid of tiny little spiders, snakes or other critters that are in fact exponentially smaller and far more vulnerable than a giant human being. Thus one must eventually ask, “Why are we sleeping giants so insecure?” 

Many people can be afraid of change, even if staying where they are is either abusive or hurtful. Some are more afraid of change than of the abuse or pain. Thus one might stay in our “comfort zone”. For example, why does a women stay in an abusive relationship with a man, or vice versa? 


Because one might be more afraid of change than of the abuse or the abuser.  In the abusive relationship, one might know what to expect. This is the “comfort zone” even if it is not really all that comfortable. Old friend, this is the source of “victim” consciousness. This negative energy feeds the Global Power structure and elite and drains the life force from the “victim”

> ENCOURAGE – Put courage back in the locker room of your life.

How many of us are willing to settle too easily and accept life as it is? For example, working at minimum wage at a job you hate that barely pays your bills or makes ends meet?  Instead of accepting such conditions, one could step out of the “comfort zone”, take a calculated risk,  shoot for the moon, plan a new business and ultimately be successful and live your dreams! 


If one is so committed to keeping it together, keeping up appearances, or being right or righteous, that we are willing to live a great big lie to stay uncomfortably in the “comfort zone”, then we may very well conclude that one has no freedom or choice. This is the opposite of individual sovereignty. Old friend, do you have the courage to not “feed the fears” or being a “victim” in life?  The rewards of claiming individual sovereignty are far greater than the cost of maintaining our fears.

02. Emotional & Spiritual Sovereignty | Individual Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

“First of all, it means liberation, freedom. A state of emotional sovereignty is obtained when a person recognizes, both intellectually and emotionally, that he or she is the total creator of his/her reality and has sole responsibility for him/herself.” ~ St. Germaine & Llyssa Royal, Spiritual Sovereignty

A well of sadness and sorrow runs deep in this heart of hearts for the needless suffering of humanity. A river of tears has been shed for the struggles, the sorrows of other sentient beings throughout the whole of human history/herstory. These tears include this “I” as a true human being whose lofty, valiant dreams, like many, have been destroyed by selfishness, foolishness and organized government. 

Old friends, having a good cry is healthy, human and holy. Like it or not human beings are emotional beings born of water, salt and ocean which equates to “emotion”. Being emotionally sovereign is essential to a healthy, optimum human life. R. Buckminster Fuller once pointed out in a lecture I attended in 1969 that there were three creatures on the planet with the same composition of salt water tears – dolphins, whales and human beings. An interesting evolutionary coincidence indeed.


May each one of us learn how to express our emotions authentically, compassionately, kindly, without projecting or blaming other people. There are times when this “I” walks the streets and it seems like human emotions are dead or buried. Is there really no feeling left, no connection, or are we masters at disguising, hiding and repressing our emotions? 

The loss of human and planetary potential, the destruction of what is inherently beautiful on this planet proceeds at an alarming pace. For these lost possibilities, I grieve deeply. For our persistent belief in a death worshipping culture, I grieve even more so. 

At times, we are unconscious of ourselves and what is possible in this world of ours. When will we awaken and feel the loss so we may create anew? This “I” grieves the sadness in this heart and the pain accumulated throughout history/herstory. Any transgression against one of us is a transgression against all of us.

May each one open to receive the healing (i.e., wholeness) for ourselves and each other. Without emotional healing, all effort at reclaiming our sovereignty internally or externally will be futile. May we reclaim sovereignty first and foremost from the inside out. Yes, having feelings is human. Yes, being human is Divine. Yes, being emotionally sovereign is essential for self-actualization.

May each one release the limbic imprint of fear and terror accumulated through generations of negative energy. This is essential for the cleansing, purification and the rejuvenation of the human spirit. It takes more than an intellectual or mental process to purge the human psyche of the conditioning that no longer serves.

May each one release all fear-based conditioning. Create the time for healing (e.g., massage, rebirthing, hypnotherapy) or any other health regime that works. May each one get to the emotional and spiritual roots that stops us from being emotionally sovereign and truly free. 

The greatest secret may be that once these are all released and healed, a  huge well of joy will be unleashed to generate positive energy (i.e., love and light) and then this gift can be given to the world surrounding you. There is only one of us!

Emotional Affirmations

  1. I take responsibility for all my emotions and feelings.
  2. I release all withhold emotions into the earth, not into others.
  3. I allow for wobbles and imperfections in my life.
  4. I accept the love and emotional support of those around me.

  7. I welcome full union with my beloved.
  8. I continue toward my full goals even through moments of collapse, confusion and failure.
  9. I love myself absolutely in all situations. 

Spiritual Affirmations

  1. I am part of a connected universe.
  2. I am part of infinite intelligence and call upon it as a resource.
  3. I have personal meaning in the realm of the Divine.
  4. I am free from the prisons of blind faith and belief.
  5. By clinging to a small part I deprive myself of the unity of all. I can surrender to my greater beingness.
  6. I walk upon my own path of discovery and exploration, trusting all of creation, remembering who I am and where I came from.
  7. There is only One of Us.

Beautiful Angel.
Queen of my Soul.
Bringing the peace of the dove.
Into my heart, abundant love. 
O’ White Winged One.
Queen of the waterfalls.
Raising a chalice of wine,
Tasting the presence of the Divine.
Sweet, Beloved Friend.
Lord of my Heart.
Singing the mystery awake.
Together we shall, fly away.

02. Herd Mentality & Hassle-Free Zone | Individual Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

We the People are all part of the same unified consciousness whether we are aware of it or not. Divisions, polarizations and separations are created in our minds. These divisions, polarizations and separations many people have adopted have allowed a small number of people at the top of the Power structure to control the destiny of the planet and most of its inhabitants. We are long overdue for a spiritual awakening to heal this divide between us and them. 

Lord, please save us from organized religion. Religion is one of the greatest forms of mind control throughout the ages by the organized manipulation of fear, guilt and shame in their followers. Even legacy media has become very “cult-like” with followers adhering to one source of news and ignoring the others. Spirituality, or direct connection with Source consciousness is distinctly the opposite of organized religion.

Many people have been terrorized into denying who they really are. From birth to death we are taught to conform, to be comfortable and to live within the “hassle-free” zone. All societies and dogmas, religious or political are generally less “hassle-free” if you conform. Those who conform are pretty much left alone because they are not perceived as a threat to the established order. This “herd mentality” allows the rule of much of the world by a few masterful manipulators. 

Those who conform without questioning authority are easily herded by persistent conditioning and through fear the same way a shepherd herds his flock with a big stick (i.e., conditioning) and use their sheep dogs (i.e., police) to keep the herd in line. With this method, those who conform move consistently and reliably in the direction the Power structure intends for you. 

For example, if the Power structure wants to take us in a particular direction it will create a “problem” (e.g., 911, wars, pandemics etc.). Then the legacy media will whip up the “problem” to the point of mass hysteria, after which the compliant react with “Something must be done! What are ‘they’ going to do about it”.  

Of course, another external force gets the blame for creating the problem and the Power structure is entirely off-the-hook and takes no responsibility whatsoever. Then Power structure steps in to rescue us with an already preconceived solution (e.g., USA Patriot Act, War on Terrorism, COVID-19 Response) and takes us one more deep step towards centralized, totalitarian world government. 

This has happened thousands of times throughout history/herstory and rarely are the perpetrators ever noticed. And if the perpetrators are noticed, those awake enough to notice are quickly accused of being “conspiracy theorists” and nut-cases.

Each decade, we inch one-step closer to the New World Order (NWO), the Deep State DS) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the usA now federalizing all police and military forces within the U.S. in a perpetual war on terrorism both abroad and at home. This was the intended result all along. 


These simple and well-planned strategies for controlling large populations have been orchestrated for generations by the Power structure. When the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) wants us to line up feverishly at the clinic and get our annual flu or COVID-19 “jabs”, they whip up a mass frenzy through the legacy media that a pandemic is happening. It does not matter if the pandemic does not ever fully materialize, because the intended result was achieved. 

The Power structure always creates a “problem” to get the desired response. We the Sheeple react, line up to get our “jabs” even if the real pandemic has been caused by the so-called vaccine itself. Wake up people!

As David Icke says so profoundly in his book, The Truth Shall Set You Free, “Gradually, stepping stone by stepping stone our liberties and our sensibilities erode and We the Sheeple are led down an unholy road giving our power away at every step in the dance. Frighten them and the people will demand their power be taken from them. We have grown comfortable at ‘giving our power away’ and denying ourselves. This is what’s perceived as ‘normal’ – the status quo. Once the mindset is there, it defends the norm whatever the hassle-free zone considers reality”.


Policing Ourselves

Unfortunately, We the People tend to be more afraid of what other people think of us than what we think of ourselves. If we step out of the herd and go our own way, dance to the beat of our own drummer, others will notice and they might not like us anymore. 

If you evacuate the “hassle-free zone” and have a mind of your own, do your own thinking and come to your own conclusions, then the compliant may not approve. You might ask yourself, “What would the other slaves think if I was free. Gee whiz, mom and dad will not approve”.  And quite possibly our closest friends, lovers, perhaps even our own children will hate us for going our own way. Are we really so weak, so cowardly that we cannot step out and live our own lives?  

Far too often we police each other into compliance, into following the rules (instead of being sovereign and making the rules). A small handful of elites can not rule the world unless We the People are willing partners in the plan. If one of us does not go along with the plan, we police each other into conformity. We maintain the prison at all costs, even to our own peace of mind. 

For if we ever actually faced the truth, our lives would be ripped apart and that would be a big hassle. We would rather live in the “hassle-full zone” than challenge the established order and ruling class. 

Is it not time to question authority and ask ourselves why? The source of war on this planet is within our psyches, torn between conformity and freedom. These prisons have no walls except the psychological walls we have built within.

“Don’t let the system fool you, all they want to do is rule you.” ~ Bruce Cockburn

As David Icke says so wisely in his book, The Truth Shall Set You Free, “Due to the compartmentalization of our institutions in the form of a pyramid, where the people at the bottom don’t know what the people on the next level up are doing, very few have ever ‘connected the dots’. Only a handful of people at the very top ever have the whole picture. Most interface with government is with the clerks in the front office who haven’t a clue what their agency ever does. They are the frontline of the mindset. Do what you are told. Ask no questions. Give no answers or legal advice”.

Is it not time to ask, what stands as the truth in our lives? How much more needless drama and oppression will we tolerate due to accepting herd consciousness, do not rock the boat mindsets and do not question authority mentality. These attitudes have created mountains of suffering for humanity and the destruction of many beautiful ecosystems of this planet. And what will ever stop this rush to extinction, until we face ourselves and awaken to our true sovereignty and power?

02. Physical, Mental & Emotional Sovereignty | Individual Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

Freedom is being effortlessly aligned with the Source of all creation. Awaken to knowing that within you IS THAT SOURCE, and that you are truly whole and complete exactly as you are. Awaken to knowing that you are response-able for creating your own reality and are empowered by natural law to create prosperity consciousness and abundance from that place. 


Prosperity consciousness and abundance is magnificently aligned with freedom.  Prosperity is not necessarily equivalent to having money, but a sign of true inner and outer wealth. Freedom of choice is not something we acquire by having money alone, though it supports our internal sovereignty by producing something of value and sharing it with others.

Freedom is a state of being. Freedom is more than just our ability to go places and buy things, but to navigate a vast inner world as well – to move freely in any direction or dimension without resistance. Integrity is defined as an alignment of our thoughts, words and deeds. 

And to be truly free old friend, you have to realize that you have the choice to declare your physical, spiritual, mental and emotional sovereignty. This is an inside job first and foremost. Very likely you know by now, what happens when the human race gives its sovereignty away to external authority? What would happen when the veil of secrecy is finally lifted to reveal the evolutionary moment when the millennia of domination by the Power structure and elite are done forever? 

As author and eminent researcher David Icke says so eloquently in his book, The Truth Shall Set You Free, “An elite few cannot dominate and control billions of people and create wars for their advantage unless thousands of millions are willing to be used as economic slaves and cannon fodder.” “Collective consciousness is the accumulation of the sum thoughts broadcasted each moment by the human race. These thoughts can be negative or positive. Presently, there’s an overwhelming vortex of negative thought forms and energy keeping the human collective consciousness grounded in the root chakra of fear and control.” 

“This applies to each and every species as well on Earth. Once you can manipulate the thoughts of one generation, it gets easier to impose your will on future generations because you now have the programmed parents and ‘leaders’ unknowingly working on your behalf. It’s a conspiracy to manipulate the human race’s sense of self and in doing so, the creation of its physical reality”.

Until each one of us takes back our sovereign mind, takes back our power, begins thinking and deciding for ourselves to live as co-creators in this beautiful universe, co-creating our own reality with the Divine, we may continue to be subject to intense mind control and legacy media manipulation that continues to rob us daily of our life force. 

For far too long human beings have allowed others to think for them and endorse other peoples ideas of who and what it is to be.  All Power structures are nourished on fear and negative energy whether family, tribe, religious or political. Furthermore, our own real or imagined fears, negative thoughts and reactions perpetuate this feeding frenzy by others with power over us. 

Each one of us must deprogram and recondition ourselves to the point of total “disillusionment”. Each one of us must commit ourselves to this steep learning curve, take back our sovereign mind, think for ourselves, boycott the legacy and alternative media narratives, read inspiring books, learn from history/herstory, listen to informative audios and podcasts, watch enlightening films and videos, attend brilliantine seminars and ultimately, discern what is true. 

This, my friends, is the root of “sovereignty education” – reclaiming and restoring your physical, spiritual, mental and emotional sovereignty, then accepting total responsibility for creating your own reality and the consequences therein. Then, and only then, may each of us explore and then declare our legal, economic and political sovereignty.

“We’ve been living in the age of darkness. Stoned cold eyes of steel.
Out of fear comes the need to control.
When will we rise up and let it go?
I’ve been praying for the Golden Age.
Warm smiles and eyes of soul
Grounded in love we build a whole new world. When will we wake up 
and let it be?
We’re living in a mighty vision of truth.
Stand together in our sovereignty.
Heart to heart we join in unity.
There will be justice and liberty”.
~ “Freedom” by Johnny Light from “Songs of the Soul”

02. The Big Picture | Individual Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, Sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts.” ~ U.S. Supreme Court Decision, Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356, 370 (1886)

A Notion of Sovereignty

When this author began researching “sovereignty”, he was surprised to discover very few Americans had any notion of “sovereignty” whatsoever, except in general reference to indigenous people, monarchs or the Pope.

Considering “sovereignty” is the central concept around which all political, economic and legal systems revolve, he was amazed how in a matter of a few generations, “sovereignty” had become virtually absent from everyday conversations.

As this author taught over several decades, more and more people began to awaken to their own personal and/or individual sovereignty, especially in the usA – the first and perhaps only country in the world based originally on the sovereignty of the individual above that of the government.

Whether or not you are a U.S. citizen, We the People are all human beings with a birthright to exercise our God-given natural rights and express this freedom regardless of the political, economic or legal system of the particular nation we happened to be born into. 

The notion of “individual sovereignty” is essentially about reclaiming “internal authority” over your life and taking full responsibility for your thoughts, words and deeds. Being sovereign is about governing yourself, first and foremost, standing in your own righteous character and presenting yourself as a sovereign human being, not relying on experts, attorneys or “external authority” to do this on your behalf. 


First and foremost, we can reclaim internal authority over our physical, spiritual, mental and emotional sovereignty, then through an act of free will we can restore economic, legal and political sovereignty by strategically withdrawing from the grasp of external authority. Doing so transforms our relationship with the powers-that-be and puts the Power structure back into a box where it belongs.


An old adage wisely says, “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force it to drink.” People can be taught about sovereignty, but no one can force people to do what it takes to become sovereign and free. Too many people will not even take the first step, face their fears, or arouse the will and courage to act according to their own conscience. Talk is cheap, while, action is precious and rare. 

People can be offered the tools, materials and resources, even the plans to build their dream house, but without spiritual, mental and emotional sovereignty as a foundation, the house remains like a dream in the clouds. This educational work is dedicated to those who have the courage, the aliveness for freedom and the capability to take effective grounded actions in the here and now.

 “No longer will we perceive ourselves as isolated individuals; we will know ourselves to be part of a rapidly integrating global network the nerve cells of an awakened global brain.” ~ Peter Russell

Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356, 370 (1886); Distinctions between citizens solely based because of their ancestry are by their very nature odious to a free people whose institutions are founded upon the doctrine of equality.

Georgia, 2 Dall. 418 at 471 (February 1, 1793) ruled that Article 3, Section 2, of the Constitution abrogated the states’ sovereign immunity and granted federal courts the affirmative power to hear disputes between private citizens and states.

01. Censorship & Security Issues | Reclaiming the Sovereign Mind | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

Censorship is deployed to prevent or dissuade alternative narratives an opportunity to be expressed or shared by suppressing information necessary to make a decision. 

Censorship may involve the outright removal of content, labeling content as false or misleading, the denial of airtime or funding, setting time limits on debates, shouting matches on television, overt threats of litigation, limits on subject matter, a seven-second delay for live radio or television or public humiliation, discrediting ones character or false accusations. This may occur in the legacy or social media or via the internet.

Advertisers influence the media in a similar way by excluding negative reporting on their companies. Bill Gates spent $250 million in grants to the media to accomplish exactly that for their foundation. Do you still wonder why you have not heard any real news lately?

Censorship may prevent the ears from hearing opinions or ideas already prejudged as controversial, invalid or inappropriate, but it also prevents the possibility of intelligent dialogue, conversation, solutions and coalition building. Labeling a narrative or theory a “conspiracy theory” stops the thinking process for many people who will assume the idea or theory is blatantly incorrect or invalid. This is a form of censorship.

In addition to media censorship, we censor each other into compliance and conformity with social pressure, thus denying the free expression of ideas. This mindset begins at home, in families, relationships, churches and schools. When was the last time you had an intelligent conversation on a controversial subject without feeling attacked, and/or invalidated by those closest to you? 

Unfortunately censorship paints us into a corner with nowhere to go. Are we so insecure about our point of view that we must prevent others from expressing theirs?

Book removals on Amazon, book purging at colleges and university libraries and  blacklisting classic literature is on the rise due to legions of politically correct “thought police” strutting around these institutions of higher learning and complaining to the authorities.

Internet censorship is also rapidly on the rise with the largest internet gatekeepers such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, and their respective fact-checking organizations, deleting, removing or labeling content, even other news channels, that either disagree with the mainstream narrative or are not in alignment with corporate politics. 

Facebook and Twitter have large followings in China and Vietnam, countries where those networks are blocked by their respective governments. 31% of internet users worldwide use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) which is credited as an enabler for Chinese internet users to circumvent website blocks.

Julian Assange, Wikileaks, Edward Snowden & NSA Disclosures

Julian Assange and the Wikileaks organization began a bold experiment in restoring accountability to the media and reporting news from credible sources the U.S. government could not allow. These disclosures rocked the world and exposed the shadow government’s dealing with not only our purported enemies, but our allies as well.

Julian Assange has paid a dear price for his courage in data dumping hacked files from government sources that shed light on the criminal activity of many of our political leaders. He has become a targeted, international scapegoat for the lack of accountability in governing institutions. He has been imprisoned, deprived and tortured by his UK captors in a prison cell while facing extradition to the U.S for prosecution. Julian Assange should be acknowledged, celebrated and pardoned, not crucified, for this most important work.

Edward Snowden transformed the political conversation about privacy and security concerns through his disclosures as a private contractor with the National Security Agency (NSA). He leaked documents to the Washington Post and The Guardian proving  the NSA had usurped its constitutional and congressional authority by spying on American Citizens and embassies worldwide. These disclosures outraged the U.S. government and the diplomatic cores of affected nations.

Snowden has been in exile at the Russian embassy in Moscow for many years. He cannot return to the U.S. unless he wishes to face a certain conviction and a life sentence for espionage. He should be protected as a whistleblower, celebrated, pardoned and freed as a hero, not treated like a criminal for his disclosures on NSA violations of the law and the U.S. constitution.

“Here will I be bold.  If there’s a power above us (And that there is, all nature cries aloud through all her works.) He must delight in virtue; And that which he delight’s in must be happy.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

01. Media Literacy & Internet Activism | Reclaiming the Sovereign Mind | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

Karl Marx once said that “religion is the opiate of the people”. Today, news and entertainment are the opiates of the people along with pharmaceuticals, drug addiction, sex, rock n’ roll and religion. Today, American media culture is the most pervasive and persuasive in the world well beyond our borders internationally.

We the People have become habitually addicted to the mass consumption of images, sound bites and snacks while often ignoring reality during the commercial breaks. An estimated 19% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the United States is spent annually on marketing and advertising.

Media Manipulation & Manufacturing Lies

The American mind has been systematically overwhelmed and closed by continual bombardment by the legacy media. The American people have become terrified of  COVID-19, viruses, drug cartels, terrorists, conspiracy theorists, crime in the streets, gang warfare and sexual assault to name only a few media generated fears. Human beings are extremely susceptible to influence by the media.

Through character assassination,  manufacturing facts, evidence and news stories, the media  has the power to frame up any individual or a group as a culprit for the public to lynch them in their minds. 

Many good people have been framed for political purposes. Donald J. Trump was a prime example of how the legacy media made half the country hate him without considering another perspective. To mention his name or support anything he did resulted in a hateful glare from half the country. He wasn’t perfect, but had many policies that helped people and the country. Media has too much power and uses that power for destruction, not for good.

Other people were convicted in the court of public opinion without a fair trial or due process (e.g., Lee Harvey Oswald, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Michael Jackson, Osho). Their stories have been distorted and recorded as “enemies of the State”.  Even Wikipedia falls prey to character assassination by labeling “conspiracy theorists” who disagree with the mainstream narrative.

Too many people have cognitive dissonance so extreme they can no longer tell the difference between hype or lies, substance or fact (e.g., JFK assassination, 911, COVID-19). We the People must take a stand for truth based on facts and evidence.

”We’re entertaining ourselves to death under the gray sky.” ~ Bruce Cockburn

Framing the Facts with Lies 

Legacy media and disinformation agents accuse, frame and convict innocent people with innuendo and smear campaigns intent on discrediting, without trial, without indictment by a grand jury, without substantial evidence to support their case. Leaders with alternative views come to expect this kind of treatment and must fight actively to manage their reputation and maintain credibility.

Bold-faced lies suffice as facts if enough people speak it. This is quickly becoming standard practice in the legal profession as well as the legacy media. Prosecutors frame the facts with bold-faced lies in indictments to assure a conviction at trial. We the People must demand accountability and honesty in the court of public opinion and courts of law.

“Fake news” are lies or distorted facts presented as news. The aim is to damage the reputation of a person or entity, or make money by advertising. The prevalence of “fake news” has increased with the rise of social media, especially Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. “Fake news” reduces the impact of real news and often receives higher ratings.

Fact checking organizations with political bias paid for by political operatives within social media companies, are springing up on the internet to debunk false stories and to censor the truth.

Discrediting the Source

Beware of individuals and organizations discrediting legitimate sources of news, people and information. Pay closer attention to the message less to the messenger. Become media literate and discern fake news from real news.

Legacy media hungers for shock therapy, sensational stories and headlining the crime-of-the-week. It tempts them into the business of lie-making, fear mongering, demonizing, dehumanizing and deadly deception. Viewers and readers beware. Always review, think and read between the lines of the message. As Marshall McLuhan once declared in the sixties, “The media is the message”.

Media as the Fourth Branch 

In the state and federal U.S. system, there are three branches of government. The fourth branch of government is a free and independent press, the vanguard of liberty. Instead of being the source of repression and negative news reporting,  legacy media and the alternative press should be harnessed to inform, educate, entertain, inspire and liberate the sleeping giants of the world. 

Unfortunately, the media is used to advertise, control and harness the energy of the “economic slaves” as portrayed in the classic film, The Matrix. We the People keep the media in power and make them enormous profits by consuming their products. 

The media exists to serve the needs and goals of the Global Power structure so the elite may live long and prosper. Power structures and the elite are energy controllers, vampires and leeches. These structures, institutions and people need to control, dominate, conquer, exploit and use others to survive at their desired “standard of living” and power.  Subverting the will of the people and implementing the directives of the Global Power structure and the elite is the only real occupation of our political leaders, public schools and the media. 

Without human beings actualizing the power of their own volition, public attention can be directed, like a cheap magicians trick, to continue fostering the illusion. The Global Power structure and the elite, through their stooge politicians, use the media to manipulate public opinion, and incidentally, get elected over and over again.

“The function of the media in the United States is to inculcate and defend the economic, social, and political agenda of privileged groups that dominate the domestic society and the state.” ~ Noam Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent

Restoring Media Literacy & Private Intelligence

What can we do? 

First, we can withdraw consent and attention from the television, the internet and the daily news. We must restore our own will power and live deliberately from day-to-day. May we examine or beliefs, challenge our ignorance, indoctrination and conditioning and begin thinking for ourselves. By doing so we create original thoughts and ideas to manifest our preferred reality. This is an ideal way to navigate through life. 

Second, we can organize powerful communications networks, independent news services, archives, libraries, research sites and community-based source centers. We can organize these locally, regionally and globally to effectively counter the media assault upon the strained sensibilities of the American people and the world.

The brainwashing, programming, propaganda and perpetual war machine waged against America and the rest of the world has been highly effective and expensive for the Global Power structure to maintain. It consumes a lot of energy, resources and time to keep the people fed twenty-four hours a day with lies and deceit. 

Third, we can empower the free world to organize, communicate and network through every tool possible in a decentralized, private and secure way. Despite the internet and social media let us not forget to continue to read books and write journals as these skills are still important.

Take inventory of the best news sources, people, projects, programs and media worldwide and make these available as opportunities and solutions arise. Communications networking is our greatest wild card for stopping the encroachment of the New World Order (NWO) and restoring freedom around the world.

The Internet was Birthed for Freedom

The Internet began with the development of electronic computers in the 1950’s at UCLA and Stanford Research Institute. In 1982 TCP/IP was standardized and the concept of interconnected networks was introduced.  It was born in 1969 with funding from the Pentagon to facilitate post-nuclear communications in the event of a nuclear blast.

In 1989, World Wide Web <www> protocol was introduced and popularized when the first Netscape browser was developed and introduced for free in 1993. This was the same year this author bought his first 128k Macintosh computer. 

In the last three decades the Internet has proven itself to be a fast track to freedom – from zero to light speed. In many ways, it has leveled the playing field for those willing to organize powerful movements for change and innovation. It has created millions of good jobs, industries and businesses for entrepreneurs. Freedom of speech and expression is “out of control” and a double-edged sword in this Age of Information.

As of this writing, there is still no central internet hub and anarchy rules with some restrictions in the U.S. although the National Security Administration (NSA) has taken great strides in funneling all phone and cellular data through their supercomputers for data mining and surveillance purposes.

Net Neutrality & Digital Rights

Principles of “net-neutrality” were overturned during the Trump Administration which benefited large Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and corporations now paying for larger bandwidth than other consumers.

“Digital rights” are defined as being able to express what one is passionate about without internet censorship by large social media platforms and gatekeepers. The current trend is away from freedom and towards censorship and totalitarian control. China has already deployed the most sophisticated and aggressive internet censorship and control regime in the world with a social credit system. Other countries, including the U.S., appear to be on the same totalitarian pathway.

Currently, there are 4.57 billion active internet users encompassing 59% of the world’s population. There’s no longer any excuse for media illiteracy.

Personal Networking & Reporting the News

Word of mouth is still the most powerful communications tool in a closely knit community of friends and neighbors. Connecting people to people with common interests, needs and goals can be the source of great happiness and a key to organizing global, regional and local communications networks such as “Source Centers”.

Let us not forget the human dimension of communication and the interaction of heart, mind and soul. Integrity is the key. Thoughts, words and deeds must be in alignment for your truth to be communicated effectively. Utilize all available communications tools and resources, above ground and underground to spread your message to all the people. 

The New World Order (NWO) and Deep State (DS) does not want to see the light of day or the truth revealed of what is actually happening behind the scenes. Keep the cell phones and video cameras rolling whenever confronting the government or anyone who is taking your freedom, your rights or property. This is beginning to happen now more than ever before.

“If you are not thinking ‘out of the box’, you are not thinking.” ~ John David Van Hove

01. An Independent Press | Reclaiming the Sovereign Mind | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

There is no doubt that the legacy news media are no longer reliable sources of solid facts, valid truth and honest opinion. Fortunately, there are now thousands of alternative sources from across the political spectrum. 

Likely, there is a 5% fact base in the legacy news media upon which rests propaganda, advertising, hype, entertainment, spin, corporate and U.S. government narratives intended to distract or misinform us from what is actually going on in our world today. 

Enjoying the Evening Snooze

The legacy news media is spoon-fed a daily dose of snooze via editorial boards, intelligence agencies, public relations departments and advertisers whereas the alternative press is reporting either a counterpoint or a reaction/response to the news of the day.

May we begin to think for ourselves, do our own research, come to our own conclusions and “detox” our minds from the evening snooze. May we learn to either “fast” or boycott both the legacy and alternative press and consider this maxim – “no garbage in, no garbage out”. 

The Global and American Power structures control all major television/cable networks, public broadcasting and major cable/satellite networks. Six corporations not only own, but control thousands of channels with a relatively consistent liberal bias and mainstream narrative. 

The same six corporations control major radio stations, magazines and newspaper chains. Most Americans get a majority of their news, information, opinions and political world view from the same legacy news sources, and now more than ever, from the internet and social media which are revolutionizing the way news is delivered.

What passes off as “news” these days is quite appalling to anyone with a modicum of intelligence and an insult to those who do not have the capacity to distinguish news from entertainment, fact from fiction or what constitutes propaganda and disinformation. 

Too many reporters, journalists and editors are busy snooping into the private lives of public officials and celebrities to actually accomplish any investigative journalism into the real issues of the day. Real journalism is an endangered species. Few have allocated the budgets necessary for independent reporting and investigative journalism as they did in the glory days of great reporters such as Walter Cronkite.

Stealing Attention from the Real Issues

In the early decades of the 21st Century there are serious concerns that deserve more attention than the sex lives of high-profile politicians or some popular celebrity’s most recent scandal. Irrelevant media spin keeps us distracted from real issues and concerns.

 Much of the legacy news media and the internet follows the path of the tabloids (e.g., National Enquirer), focuses public attention on non-issues and directs the political agenda towards the desired goals of the global elite. 

Much of the alternative independent press is busy reacting to whatever the legacy media is reporting to notice what’s really going on behind the scenes and take initiative in digging for the real news. This is changing.


Investigative Journalism & Whistleblowing

Investigative reporting and whistleblowing is difficult and often dangerous for a reporter if you want to keep your job and protect yourself from prosecution. 

Since September 11, 2001, “homeland security” and the resulting over-hyped war on terror, the U.S. government has used “national security” as an excuse for censorship and suppression of the free press.

Reporters whistleblowers and independent journalists (e.g., Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden) have faced prosecution, torture or persecution for shedding the light on controversial topics such as the U.S. State Department or the shadowy business dealings of powerful politicians.

Maintaining an independent, free press is absolutely essential to the continued existence of a healthy constitutional republic. Whistleblowers,  reporters, editors and their sources should be protected by law not prosecuted for doing their job.

A whistleblower is a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or incorrect within an organization that is either private or public. The Whistleblower Protection Act was passed in 1989. It supposedly protects federal whistleblowers who work for the government and report the possible existence of any activity constituting a violation of laws or rules.

Media Spin. Propaganda & Government Public Policy

Spin doctors, image-makers, and propagandists are key policymaking posts in any government or corporate public relations department. So how is the news engineered and manufactured to justify and then create public policy? 

Spin doctors, and those behind the scenes directing them, create public policy based on public opinion and what the public will accept. Legislators follow by writing statutes which are passed and enforced by the Executive Branch. Lawmakers and politicians don not lead, they follow public opinion often directed by corporate media.

Public policy is shaped by the “image of the issue”, not the “reality of the issue”. Public policy will become what the policy should appear like, not what addresses the issue at hand or solves the problem.

Corporate media may go as far as to manufacture or fabricate the news to suit their own political agenda. Watch the films, Wag the Dog with Dustin Hoffman and Manufacturing Consent by Noam Chomsky. These are shocking realities too true to ignore.

“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

  The government, or shadow partnerships within government, may go as far as to engineer a catastrophe or “false flag” operation to justify legislation to further their political agendas (e.g., Waco, Oklahoma City Bombing, 911, George Floyd). A “false flag” operation is an event created by a secret cabal or “deep state” operative within a nation, then blamed on another nation, group or individual to justify an already planned response.

“…It is not by any commission from the supreme executive council, who might previously judge of the abilities, integrity, knowledge, etc., of the person to be appointed to this great trust, of deciding upon the character and good fame of the citizens; for this court is above that council, and may accuse, judge, and condemn it at pleasure. Nor is it hereditary, as in the court of dernier resort in the peerage of England. But any man who can procure pen, ink, and paper, with a press, a few types, and a huge pair of blacking balls may commissionate himself; and his court is immediately established in the plenary possession and exercise of its rights. 

For if you make the least complaint of the judge’s conduct, he dabs his blacking balls in your face wherever he meets you; and, besides tearing your private character to flitters, marks you out for the odium of the public, as an enemy to the liberty of the press.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Abandoning the Ship of Freedom

An “independent” press is supposed to be the guardians of “liberty”, but have far too often abandoned the ship of freedom instead. Much of journalism has deteriorated into slick entertainment and sensationalism, even by the old vanguards of the media industry. 

Too often journalists, reporters and anchormen fan the flames of discontent by focusing the news on crime, violence, racism, sexism and government disinformation into their commentary. The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, Washington Post are infamous for fanning the flames of political division and polarization in America. Many others in the alternative media have followed suit.

From the vantage point of this author, responsible citizenship is not meant to be a spectator sport orchestrated by the media and the government. Real issues must never be confused with “entertainment”. Real news is rarely what the media is directing your attention towards. Can you tell the difference between news and entertainment? If not, we are all in terrible trouble.

Since the advent of social media over less than twenty years ago the domain of legacy media and independent press has changed forever in both form and delivery.

  • Facebook (2004)(2.89b users), WhatsApp (2009), Messenger (2010), Instagram (2012)(1.5b users) 
  • YouTube (2005)(2.3b viewers)
  • LinkedIn (2003)(774m users)
  • Telegram (2013)(550m users)
  • Twitter (2006)(400m users)
  • Rumble (2013)(321m users)
  • Signal (2018)(40m users)
  • Parler (2018)(2.5m users)
  • Gab (2016)(1.2m users)
  • WordPress (2003)(800k websites)
  • Delicious (2003), Pinboard (2009)(25k users)

In the words of the comedian and radio announcer Scoop Nisker, “If you don’t like the news go out and make some of your own.”

Instead of a few monopoly players on the media board there are now tens of thousands of bloggers, networks, channels, aggregators and compilers of news available for those with the eyes to see and ears to hear. This is indeed good news for a change. 

With more players on the field, legacy media has suffered an extreme loss of viewers, readers and credibility to the extent that many of the old vanguards will either transform their business model or go out of business for good.

With the aid of social media and easy to create websites, We the People can become our own media, become citizen reporters and do our own diligence with the news. 

We the People still have the power to discern and decide what is fact vs fiction. and what is truth. It’s up to us to hold both the legacy media and alternative press accountable for what it reports or doesn’t report.

“There is no such thing…in America as an independent press. You know it, and I know it. There is not one of you (reporters) who dares to write your honest opinion, and if you did, you know beforehand it would never appear in print. 

I am paid weekly to keep my honest opinion out of the paper. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.”..

“The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.You know it, and I know it, and what folly is this, toasting an independent press?

We are the tools and the vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the Jumping Jacks. They pull the strings, and we dance.

Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.” ~ John Swinden, Former Head of The New York Times

01. Truth is Neither Left Nor Right | Reclaiming the Sovereign Mind | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

We the People are divided against each other through various political or religious ideologies – liberals/progressives/socialists/communists/Democrats on the so-called Left and conservatives/capitalists/Republicans on the so-called Right. Third parties such as the Green Party and the Libertarian are complements to the two-party system. 

Anarchists are opposed to all organized systems of governance. Fascists are “useful idiots” the Global Power Structure uses to create chaos and confusion. All sides of this political spectrum are irrelevant to the entrenched institutions who rule regardless of which political ideology is currently in power. ”The “truth is, in fact, neither Left nor Right”.


Polarized Thinking & Conflict

Human beings are riddled with contradictions. Much of our undisciplined thinking, and the perpetual conflict within, is stuck in a vicious circle, caught in a polarized “cat chasing our tail” duality. This is the nature of “separation” consciousness.

This endless debate between Left and Right argued from one side of the aisle to the other plays solidly into the hands of the Global Power structure by keeping the people divided, thus conquered. This is the oldest game in the playbook of power. Political leaders, elected representatives and We the People have fallen into this trap. 

If the Power structure invisibly pits two opposing parties against each other, neither party can see the puppet masters controlling both sides of the equation. Surprisingly, people rarely see what is directly in front of them.  It’s a move as ancient as the Chinese military manual “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu.

Both sides of the political spectrum blindly agree to play the “divide and conquer” game much to our chagrin. We are the ones responsible for having divided ourselves against each other unconsciously, if not deliberately.  

Power structures are quite content to let us argue, debate, fight, attack and even annihilate each other instead of focusing attention on their secret and exploitative escapades behind the scenes of world affairs.


Unified Thinking & Source Consciousness

Wake up America. Wake up World.

Either we identify with “separation” consciousness or we identify with “Source” consciousness. Either we comprehend creation as a whole system, or we understand only fragments. The choice is ours. 

Like the test of a first-rate intelligence, truth is neither Left nor Right, liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, black or white, man or woman. Reality is not that simplistic and does not fit neatly in a square box of polarized, dualistic thinking.

“The whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God”, is a blending, a melting of individual points of view into a multi-dimensional perspective, a comprehensive paradox of reality. Indeed when examined, “the truth is much stranger than fiction”

Political Correctness as Fundamentalism

Many of us are familiar with the core religious belief systems of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Sufi, Hinduism, Yoga – either as expansive connections with Source consciousness – or a limited fundamentalism based in dogma. All religions can be paths to the Divine if experienced directly and if they do not impose or force their beliefs upon others. May all religions adhere to the Golden Rule, paraphrased as, “Do unto others as you’d like others to do unto you”.

Political correctness can be intellectually closed minded, fear-mongering, shame/guilt-oriented “woke” fundamentalism of the Left which destroys freedom of thought, independent inquiry and consensus-building across the political spectrum. These self-appointed  gatekeepers of political correctness have extremely strict limits as to what can be said without offending somebody. Political correctness is a fundamentalist ideology, a strange form of mind control and censorship.

Any religious or political ideology can be good if not imposed upon others by force, and if they allow tolerance and respect for the views of others who disagree or choose another path to enlightenment.

The truth is that both Left and Right as political ideology or religious fundamentalism are increasingly irrelevant in the pursuit of the empowered restoration of your individual sovereignty and God-given freedom. 

Be Ever Vigilant of Your Rights and Freedom

Be ever vigilant of those who would encourage betraying your friends, family and neighbors on behalf of the government.  Be aware of D.A.R.E., Neighborhood Watch, snitch-on-your-neighbor and other politician-police-initiated programs that betray your personal and neighborhood privacy. 

These divisive programs are part of a global strategy for destroying public and community cohesion and trust, breaking down the family and tribe, while further dividing and conquering We the People as portrayed in George Orwell’s prophetic 1984. As this author overheard recently on the campus of a major university, “In the sixties, it used to be Us v.Them. Today, with the advent of political correctness, it’s Us v. Us”

May we stop fighting each other like bullies on the playground and focus together on solving real problems in the real world, identifying the actual perpetrators and bringing about a positive shift in consciousness. This approach would be “wisdom for a change”.

“We have seen the enemy, and it is us”. ~ Pogo

Crime Wave or Organized War? 

The “crime wave” crashing over the usA is created primarily by legacy media sensationalism, politicians, foreign agents and failed economic policies of the federal and state governments (especially in the “blue” states). 

The “crime wave” is also created through the enactment of countless laws to make criminals of us all – to control every aspect of our lives and inept legislative priorities and directives executed by the foreign creditors of the United States (i.e., IMF).

What is rarely acknowledged is the “corruption wave” of duly elected, appointed or career government officials who take full advantage of their power for their own self-interest and personal gain (e.g., Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, etc). Trillions of dollars are missing from the U.S. Treasury.

Crime rates have statistically declined in the United States since the 1990’s. Except for State-sponsored or Black Lives Matters (BLM) and Antifa endorsed violence in the streets during the 2020 U.S. election cycle, crime rates have been stable. Why build new prisons when the crime rate is statistically steady or falling? Yet government and corporate investment in prisons, the criminal justice system and attorneys have continued to grow exponentially in the U.S. since the 1960’s. 

Since 1973 the number of incarcerated persons in the United States has increased five-fold, and in any given year almost 7 million persons are under the supervision or control of BOP correctional services. As a “free” country, the U.S. has the distinction of having the largest prison population and highest per capita incarceration rate in the world. 

What is the political agenda here? Who among us are intended to fill those prisons if not serious criminals?

Boycott Legacy Media

May we stop supporting legacy media’s attack on your sensibilities. Boycott television, radio, legacy media and the internet until you can watch it with the utmost of skepticism. 

May we stop believing whatever you hear, or what’s presented to you without questioning the news and information for yourself. May we do our own thinking and reject fundamentalist thinking of all kinds, whether Left, Right or in the mediocre Middle.

Americans as the People of the Lie

United States citizens are the most controlled people in the world, supposedly living in a “free” country, yet they have a difficult time seeing or acknowledging this fact. 

According to M. Scott Peck, United States citizens are the “people of the lie”, a people who believe so wholeheartedly in the lie that they can no longer see what is real or what is true. Neither do “we have the eyes to see or the ears to hear”, reality for what it actually is.

“Human beings are poor examiners, subject to superstition, bias, prejudice, and a profound tendency to see what they want to see rather than what is really there”. ~ M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Travelled

Reality erosion is the most consequential mental disability in our time – the inability to distinguish between what is actually real or what is imagined, feared or a projected reality. This inner blindness combined with ignorance, fear, denial and irresponsibility results in crisis after crisis being created for our lives. Indeed my friends, “The truth is indeed neither left nor right”. 

Surrendered Without Awareness

Many people on the streets of the usA have already surrendered their heart and soul, country and nation, body and labor to the foreign powers without question,  without hesitation, without thought, without awareness. The time for awakening is now.

When “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno interviewed young people on the streets of America, many people were so uneducated and misinformed they did not know how many planets are in our solar system, how many states in the Union, or how the political, economic or legal systems actually work. This was not just humorous, but tragic.

Many people, both young and old, have not really experienced real “freedom” in their lives. Too many are working all their lives for the illusion of an American dream.

Take a walk in the streets of the usA today. You’ll notice an unhealthy, stressed-out, defeated and demoralized people who have given up on life and resigned themselves to a miserable fate. This is especially so since the COVID-19 pandemic and the stolen election of 2020 but the global elite.

Too many have surrendered lock, stock and barrel, even though the first shot of an occupation by foreign powers (e.g., United Nations and foreign troops) has yet to be fired. You could though consider the extreme violence in the city streets of the usA as the first shots of a coup d’etat and socialist/communist takeover. 

Whatever happened to the bravado and will power of the people? May We the People summon our deeply rooted courage to face ourselves and wake up and smell a rosier, more abundant and free future. 

Perhaps it’ll take another major crisis of consciousness for the mass of humanity to wake up. Hopefully, not another world war, famine, plague, pandemic or economic collapse. Prevention is the best medicine. Individual action is the best cure for our collective apathy and indifference.

In the words of an unnamed Chinese sage, “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are headed”.

Political Sovereignty

  1. Forming a distinct political entity as a true nation under the law of nations, sovereign, independent and free.
  2. Reading, studying and re-establishing our constitutions both state and federal, or compromising the freedoms and prosperity that we originally enjoyed for generations.
  3. The foundation of a global republic.
