What a Picture Is Worth

Re: 3/10/10 issue, page 54

My life seemed slow, plodding, anxious, dull and almost impossible to become comfortable with. Yet I was getting used to it being lackluster, loveless, isolated, even quietly desperate at times. But oh no! no you, the Express had to go and startle me, shake me, disturb me and I did awaken, somehow unreluctantly. Thumbing through the 3/10 issue, I grumbled audibly about "those wretches,": tiresome BIG DEVELOPERS posing as Green Corridor advocates with their riparian reveries and their downtown make-over fantasies. How come nobody knows the difference between the good guys and the bad guys here, I complained openly. And then I got to page 54, falling silently still while nothing around me mattered too much at all. The "1R" bus snorted up to me to board and then hurtled down Telegraph like an 18 wheeler on a cross country run, competing for lane space with several aggressive outlaw Harleys. So what. It was just me and the paper. Only. I was gazing down dreamily into the enchanting face of Michael Monroe, knowing that a picture (especially a good one) is worth a thousand words. I read and re-read... the accompanying article by D.G. de Rubio and realized that pathetically, I had picked up the paper too late in the week to go and see his music in San Francisco! However, the heart of the sleeping lioness has been stirred, quickened, and she cannot rest while that stunning cougar Monroe still roams the sweeping landscape. I mean, CRIKEY!!, lets move in slowly and carefully and have a closer look, shall we?

Thought Policed

Two well documented acts of state-sponsored terrorism have occurred twice in Ohio within a year, yet the perpetrators have yet to see justice, and few media outlets have yet to report on it despite massive amounts of solid evidence.

I have an audio recording of the owner of a home surveillance store in Columbus, Al Smith, who said that he signed an affidavit for a woman who had a brain implant in her head after looking at her x-rays and testing for radio frequencies. The audio interview is available for free at www.chadkister.com under my blog, at the link "The Thought Police are Real in 2009." I also have a half-hour interview with Jeff Stibel, Chairman of Braingate, a company which makes brain implants. He confirms that this technology exists.

I have also posted several x-rays that clearly show the implant on the frontal lobe of one of the individuals. Both individuals stated that they were thought policed, with voices injected into their heads with the implants. Efforts were then made to declare the individuals mentally unfit to stand trial because of their assertions.

I know one of them personally, as a well known and respected scholar in the Athens, Ohio area. He continues to try to get his doctors to admit there is an object on his frontal lobe, pointing to it on the x-rays that you can see at www.chadkister.com, but his doctors have been given National Security Letters, and all they say is that everything looks normal. You can see the x-ray compared to an x-ray of a brain without a microchip, and you can clearly see the difference.

I need some x-ray technicians to step forward and contact me that there is an object in the x-ray. We also desperately need independent, investigative reporters, either at newspapers or as personal projects for the protection of our civil liberties, to look into this major violation of civil liberties. While there is no question that this technology exists, the scant media coverage about brain implants has allowed its abuse to go on unnoticed.

Such abuses will only get worse, and harder to detect with nanotechnology that is making miniaturized electronics, and brain-computer interface technology that is connecting these devices to people's brains.

Representing the People

My name is Rowan Millar, and I'm an independent write-in candidate for governor of California.

I believe that the platform of my campaign is unique in that I wish to be a strictly representative governor who consults and obeys the people on every issue. This is how many of our Revolutionary forefathers intended politics to work, as simply an extension of the people at large, and fully subject to their oversight and judgment. Our founders were outspokenly opposed to the perpetuation of political parties and factions such as persist today.

I live in San Jose, where I bag groceries for a living, and I'm writing a history book covering much of the American Revolution and the development of democracy. I have researched the roots of democracy, liberty, and human rights, and I find today's politicians to be in many respects unfaithful to that legacy.

One reform I am proposing to the citizenry is the abolition of the state senate and of the governor's office itself, leaving instead a unicameral assembly and a plural executive office lacking veto powers. This reform would remove the British monarchism and aristocracy which wealthy elites imposed on our government by trickery and coercion, and would be cheaper and more transparent than our present system.

In a state as large and populous as ours, it is to the media we must look to keep people informed of their options not only in legislation but in elections. Otherwise we are at the mercy of whoever can afford to purchase publicity.

I am a candidate who does not look down on the people, who instead looks up to them, as the true and rightful governors of California.

Yours for Freedom,

Rowan Campbell Millar, San Jose

Streets Lined with Leather

Greetings, I'm originally from Brooklyn, N.Y. and have been making the transition of living in Oakland while helping a friend build a business. Forgive me if I'm making a mountain out of a molehill but my work ethic in service oriented business' for nearly four decades has been to always keep the customers happy and not only will you get repeat business; but more from word of mouth referrals. I recently visited Ike's shoe repair on Lake Shore Drive (I believe is the name of the Street) in Oakland to have a sheath made for a broken car key, the key still works but it won't hang on a key ring; it has a computer chip built into it and therefore cost a minimum of $85.00 to replace.

A fabric sheath has been working fine but they eventually shred from handling, hence I came up the brainstorm of a shoemakers machine which rounds corners and could fabricate a leather sheath in thirty seconds. There started my rude awakening, when I asked the clerk to make a leather sheath for said key he looked at me as if he didn't understand (he appeared to be of Chinese ethnicity). In frustration I asked if he sold pieces of leather to make repairs, this he understood and brought out a piece the size I could use and sold it to me for $1.00 (one U.S. Dollar) which I should have been happy with. But I know from experience you need special needles to properly stitch leather, it took me nearly an hour to stitch said sheath with conventional needle and thread; and it certainly came out looking good (my scout master would have been proud of me!) , however experience tells me it would have been perfect if stitched by machine and I was disturbed that this fellow would turn away business.

His quote to me was that he didn't want that type of business, therefore I presumed he didn't understand me as I would have gladly paid $10.00 to $20.00 for the job as I wanted which I'm sure would not have taken more than five minutes tops with the right tools. I was compelled to return and show him the finished product and what he could have charged; in the interim while regular customers came in for service I would stand to the side to not interrupt his flow of business and then resume our dialogue which lasted about ten minutes total between customers.

It  was then I realized between customers why he would refuse a paltry $20.00 for five minutes work; customer #1 needed half soles only on ladies shoes $45.00, customer #2 needed a shoulder strap on a ladies bag repaired: price $40.00 final customer needed half soles and heels on ladies high heel shoes (those tiny little heels) price $60.00. It was then this fellow reminded me of an old joke about immigrants coming to the U.S. as the land of prosperity and because the streets were lined with gold; well this one fellow was headed toward the baggage claim area and saw a $100.00 dollar bill on the floor, he began to pick it up stopped; and then proclaimed he would start working tomorrow! I thought right to refusal of service was only for unruly customers, not to pick and choose what is only beneficial to the merchant. If you agree with me perhaps you'll do a story on this prosperous merchant to deflect business to his accommodating competition or maybe even inspire someone to go into that specialty business as the owner of Ike's acknowledged that some of those keys cost up to $300.00; only to confuse me more knowing that he realizes the value but still turns the business away:"GO FIGURE!"; anyway thanks for your time and allowing me to blow off steam. You can have access to my key if you decide to run a story on it! (It's a real beaut!)

Satan's Minions

Salamun 'alaykum,

Peace be upon you,

This is the dream of the righteous finally realized. The kingdom of God is arriving very soon. However it starts with a devastating earthquake to hit San Francisco on the 9th of November, 2010.

Jesus prophesied the coming of the kingdom through a messenger by the name of "Ahmad".

I, Ahmad Nishitoba, a 33-year-old half Egyptian half Japanese man, was inspired by God of the details of a prophecy in the final scripture, Quran, a huge earthquake that will hit the hub of transgression, San Francisco, on 119 to usher in the birth of the kingdom of Heaven.

But why America? America is the most important community of our times. Unfortunately, Satan has been using it as a tool to further his plan of world domination and consolidate his rule on Earth. It turns out that 911 and the ensuing wars are nothing but a final step along that scheme.

However God won't leave the sincere around the world without supporting them against Satan's schemes.

The prophecy of the final scripture, Quran, talks about a respite God gave Satan in which Satan tries to prove his point that the creatures (e.g. money, material things, people) can function, harm and benefit on their own. This polytheistic view of the world is what has led to its current miserable state.

Through unjust wars and terror, unprecedented inequality and monopoly on the world's riches and resources, the control of governance by Satan's minions everywhere has ravished the planet.

The respite of Satan as a temporary ruler on Earth will come to an end on November, 9, 2010. This is proven by a hidden numerical code in the final testament, Quran. The code is based on the number 19, which is God's signature on the scripture and on the universe (1 and 9, first and last numbers, proclaim that God is the Alpha and Omega)

The miraculous mathematical structure of Quran is based on this single prime number 19. That miracle was revealed in America in 1974, through a messenger, Rashad Khalifa. He was the messenger of the covenant mentioned in Malachi (3:1-3).

Rashad proclaimed that the miracle of Quran has finally purified it from two false verses, which were added to glorify the prophet Muhammad. The miracle also confirmed the divine authorship of the rest of Quran, letter by letter.

Moreover Rashad Khalifa proclaimed that the Muslims have deviated en masse by idolizing the final prophet Muhammad, and following the fabricated books of Hadith, instead of Quran alone. Some ignorant Muslims later killed him in 1990 for delivering that message which exposed their idol-worship.

The conspiracy of making the followers of a messenger idolize him is nothing new. Millions before have idolized Jesus, who was just a human messenger and prophet sent by God with the Gospel to restore the religion back to "Submission to God alone" instead of following false, man-made teachings other than the scripture of God, the Torah.

So basically, Satan's creed is built upon idolizing people and things, venerating and devoting oneself to them, either through extreme fear or love. Thus Satan wants our focus to shift from God to anything and or anybody else.

Why would a bunch of humans on a boat fight together when they are supposed to have the same destination? It is but the evil powerless Satan who wrecked the boat and is about to destroy it completely along with his followers. However, God has the best plan; the corrupt captain of the boat, Satan, will be toppled and the righteous God-reverencing humans will take over and inherit the rule of the Earth, so that the boat of Humanity can sail again safely and peacefully under the leadership of the one Creator, God.

This is the good news for the believers around the world, the event of 119.2010, will announce the demise of Satan and his followers as rulers of the planet, the temporary respite of Satan will end, and we shall no longer see the corrupt in positions of power, dominating and manipulating the people as they wished. They were only allowed to do so, within limits and for a specific interim, which will be over very soon.

Also this event will serve as a perpetual warning for the wicked until the Day of Judgment, which is coming in 2280 AD (Rashad Khalifa delivered this proven date).

The new era of righteousness will begin with a terrible disaster of biblical proportions, just like in the days of Lot, when the city was destroyed before they could start over again on new righteous foundations based on reality, and not on illusion like the world we have experienced so far under Satan's rule, but of course God was, is and will always be the ultimate Ruler.

This disaster that will hit America on the morning of 11.9.2010, will be a marker for the start of a new global kingdom of righteousness called "United Submitters Nation". The Submitters are those who submit and devote themselves absolutely to God alone. I hope you are one of them.

None Will Argue My Points

Ending SSA Bullshit and taking a bite out of Mexican Cartels...one "Dum-MF" at a time)

...have SSA Case in front of 08-3789 in front of Magistrate Laurel Beeler as Oral hearing set for 7/1/10 per US Attry. as I'm in Pro Se......The reason I'm in Pro Se after "5+ years", of this, ("had' Disability Attorney per Physical Disability claim but all bail at this point ), is that no SSA Attorney's have the legal chops to take it as far as I have nor will argue the points I have brought up...(as I will fax to you right after this at 879-3794)....the gist of my arguments is having seen "1st hand" in Oakland for about a year, is that "plausibility" of "50?" souls in S.F./Oakland/Berkeley proper, (well, "conservatively"), on SSI that go off on a binge of one kind or another as drug of choice in "Urban areas" is, "Crack", then California with "500?" souls, U.S. with "5000?", (conservatively...), at est. "$800? a pop", per person/check/month...DO THE MATH backwards 15 years on waste already & then forward ahead 15 years...as Mexican Cartels thugs do the same math knowing the US helps underwrite the very activity the US & Mexican governments are trying to "crack" down on as one of the most, "insidious transfers of wealth" comprehended as let US Attorney's Office made aware a "YEAR AGO" but by doing nothing, is either complicit or negligent but they rather "triage?" my case through SSA labyrinth hell for years instead......on 4/22, Joseph Russonniello was on TV talking with Governor about "cracking down?" on Mexican Cartels as told Court, "a Joke!" besides local resources from EMS, (Oakland   had 45,000 EMS/ambulatory calls one year but don't chart or track if they are on receiving end on SSI as well to report), Police disturbance calls, etcs.,& since "unimpeded" as those souls go through their checks like "shit through a goose"......"Shelter Hoppers" have been created as they know the system better then most especially the part that the Shelter, (or Transitional House), doesn't have to report their there & while there they are protected...as I have asked the Court to Order Oakland responders & caretakers after the fact to "Start" recording these encounters with the intent to transfer the wealth back to "Adult Orphanges" so that by sex/race/age, & per "combined maladies" of Mental "and or" Substance Abuse, "and or" Criminal backgrounds these areas can be addressed "directly" saving the tax payer money, (wonder what the "bread-basket" of America, the "majority" that have payed into system think about this scenario going on for "Years?"), & helping these souls at same time....also what came out of this was a need for a, "Homeless Bill of Rights" from emergency responses like Katrina to the "daily need" to keep folks from hurting themselves therefore society & the neighborhoods of which they live...    ...while rural areas have "Meth" to do with, Urban resources mentioned above taken the hit as with Oakland PD looking at lay-offs, (that wouldn't have to happen to same scale if my ideas implemented), & recent news of killings just south of our border in a 24 hour period as in News, (so crack users/addicts/dealers responsible for these deaths? can we link?..."YES!"...but also US Attorney's Offices by doing "NOTHING!"...)....we have better tracking in this Country for Cattle & Toilet paper but with Judge Beeler having spent 14 years in US Attry's Office then another question:will she eat her own?...(maybe didn't help that I said I would go after US Attry's Offices "throughout" US like, "shit through a Goose?"...)....8/19/07 I was featured in a Sunday Front Page Oakland Tribune, "Will Work for Self" as to the tribulations of dealing with the Dept. of Rehabilitation, (DOR), but, "nothing?" came out of that...no indignation letters to the Editor...(even though "8-Million Californians" with some form of Disability & growing as "Largest Voting Block" & can effect "any election" if ever organized...but DOR only serves "4%?" of this population in California)......Will, (and would love to expand on all above), need your help to expose, (SFChronicle "weak" & see above on Tribune...),  as hoping this will begin a huge, "behavior modification" of Courts, Congress, & individuals...and a wake up call to Cong. Lee & Mayor Dellum's & the like as I guess since "constituents?" then can't say "no or stop" as votes lost...so they can keep up doing a magnificent job...

Yodeling at McDonalds

Wouldn't you say that it's a sign that you are out of your mind when you start yodeling at McDonalds. They should pull that commercial off the air and put that guy in the psych ward before it becomes a movement and a national security risk. What if everybody starts yodeling at McDonalds? It would be worse than zombies, worse than night of the living dead. It would certainly be worse than panty raids and men stealing women's underwear.

I tried to yodel and before I knew it I was issuing out of control vocal utterances and almost shit my pants. Think of the damage I could do if I was good at it. What if the yodeling at McDonalds commercial was a sinister training tape to teach people how to be insane at fast food restaurants?

I think instead of flu shots they should make everyone go to the gymnasium at the local high school and administer a lie detector test. At least two of the questions should be did you kill your parents and do you yodel at McDonalds. They should have armed guards at McDonalds ready with Thorazine in case someone starts yodeling.

In short I think yodeling at McDonalds is a new euphemism for insanity. Don't be surprised if the next time you visit your shrink he says dude I think you're yodeling at McDonalds and need to make a visit to the hospital.
