I've been putting so much serious material in this forum that I haven't really given you a chance to know me. With that in mind, I'm establishing this thread to act as an archive for the questions you have about me that doesn't necessarily relate to any of the topic you see here. All I ask is that you keep it clean and bear in mind the ATS terms and conditions.

What exactly is or was your occupation? I'm curious, because I've read some of your posts and you seem to know quite a bit. Thanks.

Great forum Thread thanks for opening one up to field some questions!

With the war in Iraq and occupation, looming possible war with Iran and the seeming desire for the US to gain some influence/control in the region, what is your take on PEAK OIL? Is it here, has it passed or is it in our (near) future?

Also what are the other chess moves yet to be made and/or in the planning stages by the US?

Also, the wiki dos not really state much about your bio, such as your past experience in the (yikes) political world. How was that time for you and what capacity were you in?

Hi Justin, good idea on the thread. I didn't really have any questions, but since you asked, I came up with some, so here goes.

1) Is your avatar you?

2) Since someone already asked about your occupation, I will ask, What are your credentials here such that you were granted your own conspiracy forum?

3) If you could implement a serious and major change to the ATS forums and format, what would that change be?

4) Who is your favoured candidate that you will vote for in the ATS elections for president, and why do you back them specifically? (If this one is too "personal" feel free to decline comment...
)

5) How did you come about living in Anchorage? What is your story on living way the heck up there (besides it's natural beauty reasons)?

The picture you see for my avatar is, in fact, all me. I had several suggestions for alternative images, and I still get suggestions which
are often quite creative, but I decided to go with "truth in advertising."

I am a struggling novelist and political essayist by day, and a Conspiracy Master by night. Although my fortunes are beginning to turn for the better, I hope never to lose touch with my writer's roots. I've been an essayist for three years. I hold degrees in History and Political Science. I plan on going back to school in the Fall, and I may not stop until they call me Doctor. I know that there is some speculation that I publish under different pen names, but there's really no truth to that rumor.

I've been on a number of sites and boards, and so far ATS is the best. Some of the people who hav decided to go and look for my earlier work have managed to find my stuff on some pretty obscure sites, so they can attest to my "well rounded education."

I'm not sure that I have a favorite ATS Presidential candidate at this time. I have recently participated in a head-2-head debate with xpert11 regarding the need for internment camps for illegal aliens inside the U.S., but I have asked most of the candidates some questions.

If I have any questions about the ATS Presidential race, it would be these. a) Will there be a primary? b) Is there a long term plan to develope a political simulator for ATS?

I come from a long line of military. My father was an officer in the Army. We first came to Alaska in 1973. We were here for 2 years. His career caused us to move on, but the family liked it so we came back in 1979 after my mother had died. I know that I give up a lot by staying here, such as a more profitable writing career, but I also live among people who are some of the freest thinkers I have ever met. Just the sort of thing that a Conspiracy Master needs.

Hi Justin-

Can you tell us anything more about project Monarch and the likes that isn't already available on the web? I ask because you have the Military background. My dad was army too but he is very straight, won't even discuss anything with a whiff of conspiracy.

Here is a link to what I am asking about: www.angelfire.com...

Nice meeting you!

For those who do not know, project Monarch was allegedly a Nazi mind control program with a dubious background. Some said it actually worked, while others said it was a counter intelligence move by MK ULTRA designed to misinform.

There is a passing nod to Momarch in my publsihed worked, only because thre are still people out there who are involved in that kind of research. Those of you who have read my work will recall the character of Preston Fisk, and his connection to old school spy stuff that backtracks to Monarch.

Mind control still exists as COINTELPRO in many organizations in and out of the U.S. That may seem sily, but there are disturbing signs that such programming actually does work on a limited segment of the population. "Deconstruction," as it is known in the espionage trade, is literally the method of unraveling a personality to get at the information stored in long term memory.

There isn't a lot of source material on this subject, but all indicators suggest htat its a dark science that is alive and well in some parts of the world, including the United States.

I just recently had a friend tell me about an instance where he is going to protest Dick Cheney a BYU here in Utah on Thursday. I am conservative and although Cheney is not my favorite person, I am not the type to protest a commencement. The reason a large group of the people are protesting is the"new" information people and websites are claiming about the torture of Iraqis and terrorists, and the knowledge that this is happening by our heads of state. I honestly don't like to be a person who believes stuff just because it is on the internet. Then again if there is some merit to it, that's another story. If you know whether or not ther is would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for opening this thread and allowing us to ask your opinions.

Here is a link to the info I found and posted on ATS:

I come from a military family. So far as I can tell, our American military service bagan with the Civil War. Like many families, we had kin on both sides of the conflict. That post war 'rift' was largely healed by time and the family's patriotic leanings. New wars came and wiped away the old divisive memories.

Although I cannot serve in the armed forces due to my bad eyes, I'm still surrounded by the military community. In spite of my outsider status, I am accepted and well thought of by people who would otherwise have 'cause' to ignore me because I'm not one of them.

Militias are a traditional idea. Most are not more than seventy years old. Some actually date back to the founding of the country, but most are recent creations based on old school ideas. The 'real' militias are little more than social clubs that happen to meet at the local gun range, but I think they serve an important purpose that they might not be aware of.

Most clubs. special interest groups, or professional societies don't know it...but...they are the keepers of some form of American Tradition. They retain social values that might, from time to time, go out of style. Some of the values that these social networks retain are necessary to the future safety of the nation.

American militias serve that purpose. They retain a single tradition that might one day profoundly effect the future of the nation. The functionality of the second amendment is what's in play, and really does matter to me if it lives or dies. As a trained historian and political scientist, I know that I hold what are slowly becoming unpopular views, but I feel the need to say something while I still can.

I chose to make my splash with conspiracy fiction because the world does not need another dry-as-dirt technical paper. Everybody sleeps through those two-hour powerpoint presentations, and we all know it. I chose to deliver my opinion via a different delivery system. On top of that, my lawyer tells me that I am easier to defend when my published work is labelled as Fiction.

There are NOT very many people saying these things. That's why I'm here. If the market was full, I wouldn't be here because I would be just another unknown author trying to ride an established gravy train. In the context of ATS, I'm here because the covert political moves to disarm you are actually conspiratorial. This, and other government policies, are designed to conspire against you.

Militias are just one piece of the puzzle.

You are a great writer, know how to communicate well with others. How old are you? married? children?

I grew up around military too and find some of them to be the most outspoken critics of our government anymore. With all the conspiracies about martial law and everything, do you think it is possible for the very army our government has created to turn on them?? The politicians?

How about the elite Canadian sniper team?? Have you heard about the program of how they genetically alter these guys??

As my profile says, I was born 4-20-65. Although I may share a birth date with Adolf Hitler, I am rapidly on my way to out-living Elvis. I am in fact married. Been off the market for a number of years. From the back desk of my house, I have a clear view of the airspace over my local AFB. Love to watch those planes fly. Nice to see what they're doing with my tax money. Can the army turn on the Federal government? Under the wrong circumstances, I would hope so.

John, I don't know if you have read some of my posts about what has been going on with my life in the last three years, I know a lot of it probably sounds crazy and paranoid which is what a lot of people have taken to call me............but everything I have posted here is the truth. I am not a good writer, it never has been a strength of mine, I am not able to effectively communicate my thoughts in a rational manner because I get so excited and frustrated about what has happened to me that I go on frequent meltdowns.

I don't know if you would call my case a conspiracy or just plain old greed and corruption by the government and corporations who are so stupid they P*ssed me off so bad I have spent the last 3 years of my life, all of my money to investigate and uncover what has really happened. Even at that..........I bet I don't know the half of it but I feel if I really knew the truth...........it would make a good story. Someone like you would be a good person to write it. Here is the deal...............I can back up almost everything I have written with evidence, witnesses, correspondence, names, legal/court documents. A lot of it I have made educated guesses or have posted on websites trying to get information. Believe it or not.........a lot of my info has come from "throwing stuff out there", then listening to the silence. It has spoke volumes to me in a lot of things like the IP numbers I uncovered and the related websites. One person on this board is the first to give me a half-way logical explanation and even at that I still am not sure how it relates to my case, if it even relates to my case or what kind of criminal activity is going on....................I do know this, it is the one thing that seems to have got more attention than all the Medicare fraud I exposed, the Public Corruption and the false/forged criminal charges forced on me. As a matter of fact.............it seems to have stopped some people dead in their tracks.

I haven't even posted a fraction of what I have but someone like you could track it down, put it in words, educate people. I would be honored if you ever want to write an article about it.

As a dark master of American political politics, I'm not allowed to say the full extent of what I know.
It's in the rules.


having said that, I'd like to point out a few things. This is something that I say to everyone who comes to me their their case.

You know your situation better than anyone else. You are the one and only expert on YOU. That means that you've got to do a few things before you charge the ramparts to fight.

You don't have to be an eloquent speaker, or even a good writer to make your point. There are some well known conspiracy theorists out there who have books and radio shows, and they STILL can't merge two sentences together without staples and tape. Before you step in to the areana of public opinion, you'll need to answer a few questions that only you can decipher.

What do you really know? why do you know it? and what do you really want to do about it? Those are the three biggies.

What you know and what you can prove are two distinctly different things. Gather up what you know and put it in a brief case or a file folder. Then, look at it. If it comes from the source of whatever really honks you off, you may have a case. If all you have amounts to "what I saw," you've got "nothing" as far as the conspiracy community is concerned.

On the other hand, if what you've got speaks for itself, then...you can move on to the next question. How did you come by this knowledge? That's the second or third question you'll be asked by any competent conspiracy researcher. Even if all you can say is "I copied it off their web site," you're still working with something more than "what I saw."

It's one thing to prove that a conspiracy "is," and it's something else altogether to take action against the conspirators. Actionable proof is nothing less than evidence that would hold up in a court of law. Conspiracy theorists almost never come up with actional proofs. They do, however, come up with enough to prove that something is possible, or that it stands a good chance of actually happening.

It's never a good idea to let others speak for you. If you're not comfortable with coming forward under your power, you should think about staying in the shadows. Conspiracy revelation is a lot like gossip. When it happens, it gets away from you and takes on a life of its own. When you present your proofs, the "chain of evidence" should be strong enough for anyone to back track it.

Even if you can prove what you say, you may still be in for a lot of disappointment. A lot of people come tp laces like ATS and take great pains to make their case...and then...nothing happens. Why? Again, we go back to that expectation. Too many people who make the decision to open up and say what they know expecting some measure of justice or payback. In the end, you'll have to settle for the fact that the truth is out. It may hurt your feelings if it makes no waves, but there it is.

If you really want to make your case here on ATS, I suggest that you do the following:

Cut and past what you've got in to your favorite word processor. Take thetime to include hyper links. Don't drown the reader in long lists of IP's or e-mail finder codes. Don't assume that addresses and extensions will impress anyone. Say what you can in just five (5) pages of dense material and save the document.

Finding the right ATS forum may be hard, but take your time. Ask around. When you do find the right forum, start a thread. Keep that title short. No ranting. Cut and past your material in to the text box and watch that character count. The max post is apparently 25,000 characters, which works out to roughly five pages of dense text.

It's not enough to be "right." We've all seen a lot of stuff that we can't prove. Don't yank anyone's chain, and don't whine if the answers you get don't go along with what you're trying to achieve. If all else fails, remember that none of us know what you know. You'll be leaving out a lot when you make that big revealing post, but that's okay. All journey start with that first uncertain step.

Thanks John, you are right. I know enough about my case that whenever I tried to get a jury trial..........it was squashed. I have been through two lawyers, two private investigators, thousands of hours of my own research. Since my case started online it was hard to identify a lot of the people involved. I am not sure how much I will pursue this anymore because I have spent the last three years of my life on it and have been stonewalled every step of the way.
I am absolutely convinced that if I could get a jury trial I would blow this thing wide open. Even though I know a lof of the truth, there is a lot I still don't know which is why I think the only way I will ever get justice in my case is with a jury of my peers. There are so many powerful people with a lot of money involved who have literally starved me that I really don't have much hope anymore. I am barely surviving as it is and I am in the process of having my home foreclosed so I am faced with a lot more pressing issues at this point.

I will say this, I gave it a good fight............I don't regret it. They may have starved and ruined me, but in the end they will fall. I may not be around to see it but I know in my heart they will fall.

With all due respect, I'm not buying the "poor me" thing. You don't need a court of law to convene a jury of your peers. All you really need to do is stop fishing for sympathy and get down to the business of making your case. ATS is the closest thing you're gonna get to a jury of your peers. In this case, your peers would be those who are sympathetic to you. Until you go out of your way to state your case for this community, and stand for questioning, you won't get muc more than a few nights and evening of typing that keeps you busy.

I understand this isn't what you want to hear, and I'm trying to unsult you. After investigating yoru case, I'm not convinced that you've made a real effort to ex-plain yourself to anyone. In this one regard, your behavior is questionable. The ATS community will give you a fair hearing, but it won't take what you say at face value. This is a no-Troll zone, and I won't balme anyone for being skeptical.

Having said all this, let me make one point. "I was there and I saw it" will only cut so much ice. I was on site, and I saw things when I was in government service, too. I have no paper proof, but I did see those things. I'm willing to talk about what I saw, but I'm not going to expect anyone to give me any special status because of it. Most of what you see here in this forum that has my name on it is hyperlinked-linked. The rest is all built around my professional expertise. That's how I "prove" what I have to say.

I'm not trying to shoot your down, but I am telling you to fish or cut bait. Gather what you have and start a thread in the Government Conspiracies forum and get the ball rolling. I'm sorry if this kind of guarded approach offends you, but anyone who could possibly be of use to you in this matter would be openly skeptical before they could be of any help to you.

^I understand what you are saying John, I am not "trolling" at this point....I am to the point I don't care about making a case anymore. I would like your opinion on something and am talking in generalities.......not me, but "what if". Let's say someone on this board was involved in a legitimate conspiracy and it had gotten to the point they wanted to disappear, vanish..........how do people go about doing so?? I have read some of the cases on this board where that has happened to people........they go on the lam, they don't want anyone to know who they are or where they are going........how do they go about accomplishing that?? You wouldn't be able to just change your name because the government or others could still find you, yet you will still have to earn a living, be able to support yourself, get food, shelter.

It obviously can be done, how do people do it?

With all due respect to you John, I am not trying to elicit sympathy from people on message boards, I don't need a jury of peers on a message board, nor do I care if anyone is skeptical of my story. Ten years ago I would have been skeptical of anyone who told me a story (or nightmare) like the one I have lived for the last three years but I know what I know, I have lived it, I have fought it, I have lost everything I have because of it. If anything I have posted on this board could remotely help anyone in the future...........GOOD. If not, consider me a troll and a damn good one.

I wouldn't necessarily call my case a conspiracy either, I would call it a bunch of corrupt, greedy, incompetent, stupid people who got busted out. Will anything be done in my case...........probably not. Will the bad karma come to pass on all of them...........you bet.

All I am saying is this...............I gave it a good fight. That is more than 80% of the people here would do, they would rather sit around typing and bitching about it. I took action, I took a big gamble when I fought the powerful/wealthy bastards and I lost. They brought it to me in real life, I defended myself............I was never the aggressor or bull#ter who tried to take it to them in real life. I would never maliciously try to ruin another person just because I am a # up but have enough power, money, influence to cover it up.
