CONVENTION AND ELECTION RESULTS
On Saturday, May 5 delegates to the 2012 Libertarian National Convention chose Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico, who reduced taxes fourteen times, vetoed 750 bills and reduced the number of government employees in his state by 1200 as our candidate for President. His plan to balance the budget in his first year in office by reducing all fedgov spending in all departments by 43% is actually better than Ron Paul’s plan to cut one trillion dollars in his first year in office. Governor Johnson has been a staunch defender of the re-legalization of marijuana. Governor Johnson won on the first ballot as did Judge James P. Gray, retired California judge, Libertarian candidate for the US Senate in 2004 and author of Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed and What We Can Do About It http://www.judgejimgray.com/whyourdruglawshavefailed.php. This year’s ticket provides a better combination of executive and judicial experience than any of our previous candidates.
The election of National Chairman did not go as smoothly. Chairman Mark Hinkle, who I thought did a very good job representing the Libertarian Party on Alex Jones’ show several months ago, and competitor Mark Rutherford of Indiana were defeated by none of the above before former National Chairman, Geoff Neale, who served from 2002 to 2004 was elected. Presidential contender Lee Wrights became Vice Chairman. Starchild of California, our LP canary in the mine, joined the National Committee. I spoke to him extensively several conventions ago and, despite his unusual clothing style which does not have much outreach potential outside of San Francisco, I found that he is quite well informed about the forces which misrule the world.

ANDREW J. MILLER
All candidates for President who overcome the daunting task of ballot access and competing in primaries and who are on the ballot in states with sufficient electoral votes to win should participate fully in all presidential debates. Otherwise, the debate is totally crooked.

FUTURE LIBERTARIAN PARTY OF CUYAHOGA COUNTY MEETINGS
All meetings are scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at Denny’s Restaurant, 4331 West 150th Street, Cleveland, except as noted below.
July 11 Please note that this is the second Wednesday of July. James McAbee, who was a Libertarian Party activist in Michigan before he moved to Ohio, will discuss Ludwig Von Mises, the greatest economist of the twentieth century, and his very important perspectives on the subject of socialism.
After Mr. McAbee speaks, Scott Rupert, an independent candidate for US Senate who was able to get 5000 valid signatures to earn ballot access, will discuss his campaign. I have looked at his website http://scottrupert.com/ and can state that he is far superior to the duopoly candidates. Since there is no Libertarian candidate I plan to support him.
August 1 Scott Sedlak of the Thomas Jefferson Knowledge Institute will discuss the importance of his organization in educating school children and their parents about the importance of the US Constitution in restoring our liberty.
September 5 This will be a planning session to help Gary Johnson and local candidates. Since a very large percentage of Ohioans vote by absentee ballot, literature should be distributed before the beginning of October.
October 3 Final Pre-Election Planning. Scott Rupert will speak to us again. All Libertarian candidates and all other candidates who supports liberty are invited to attend and speak.

It is important to have as much information as possible to invite oneself to such events, especially if the organizers have not done so.
I WILL BE GLAD TO LIST APPEARANCES OF OTHER LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATES AND OTHER PRO-LIBERTY CANDIDATES WHO HAVE NO LIBERTARIAN OPPONENTS.
As America plunges into a full blown police state with the passage of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act and signing by Obama on December 31, with almost no mention in the kept establishment media, and the threats of World War III and economic collapse loom ever larger, it is more important than ever to do as much as we can to advance the cause of liberty. Do whatever you can. Your life and liberty and the lives and liberty of those whom you love depend upon it.
OTHER COMING EVENTS
June 1 and beyond. Most Americans do not know that Mexico was subjected to a Communist revolution which began before the Bolsheviks captured and enslaved Russia. A new movie in theaters today, For Greater Glory, starring Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria, portrays the Catholic anti-Communist revolt known as the Cristiada against the Communist Mexican government during the 1920s. This development is especially interesting as Obama is persecuting the Catholic Church through the vile Kathleen Sebelius and his socialist Obamacare program which forces Catholics to renounce their faith or close their hospitals, other charitable facilities and possibly their schools. I do not know whether the movie will be as good as the preview but perhaps Obama should watch it. As an Orthodox Christian I acknowledge differences with the Catholic Church for the last 950 years or so but they are the largest denomination in the United States. If they can be successfully persecuted then we all can. All Christians, Bible believing Jews, Muslims, pagans and nontheists should stand in solidarity with them now. For the preview of the movie see http://www.forgreaterglory.com/ and Viva Cristo Rey!
3:00 PM Sunday, June 3 Veterans for Peace Chapter 39 will meet St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2747 Coventry Road, Cleveland Heights. The VFP called for the impeachment of Barack Obama at its last national convention. Regrettably, nobody else has followed their courageous example.
7:00 PM Monday, June 4 The Lake County Ron Paul group will meet at Celebrity Pizza 7502 Mentor Avenue, Mentor.
6:00 PM Tuesday, June 5 There will be a fundraiser for Daniel Cartwright, Constitution Party activist who is running for Clerk of Courts in Portage County, at the Covenant Bible Fellowship Church hall, 8146 High Street, Garrettsville. The minimum donation is $8.00.
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM Thursday, June 14, and Every Second Thursday, We the People meet at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, 450 Dennison Avenue, Akron, Ohio 44312 on the corner of Albrecht Avenue. This group studies the alleged legality of the federal income tax and other monetary issues.
7PM Wednesday, June 20 9-12 Project in Mentor Lakeland Community College, 7700 Clocktower Drive, Room 129-T Beverly Goldstein will discuss vote fraud.
8AM to Noon Saturday, June 23 Cleveland Pride Day Voinovich Park behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in downtown Cleveland. Gate donation $10-$20 For more information, see http://www.clevelandpride.org/home/

This is a game which is designed to teach you how to invest more prudently. It is sponsored by Jeff Kanter. I finally attended and it was enjoyable and educational. If you plan to eat, you should arrive at 5:30 PM..
From peace and justice patriot, Don Bryant:

Park on East 12th between Lakeside and Superior at parking meters. Contact Don at 440-263-5205. Thanks!
If you would like to have your group mentioned, contact me.
PART ONE: LEWIS T. MCFADDEN
Lewis T. McFadden was born in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, on July 25, 1876. He became a banker and was elected president of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association in 1914, the same year that he was elected to Congress where he served the American people and opposed the international banksters until 1935. He died under very suspicious circumstances in New York City on October 1, 1936, during his last Congressional campaign.
Wikipedia describes his greatest accomplishments quite succinctly: BEGIN QUOTE.
McFadden is also remembered as a “vociferous foe of the Federal Reserve,” which he claimed was created and operated by European banking interests who conspired to economically control the United States. On June 10, 1932, McFadden made a 25-minute speech before the House of Representatives, in which he accused the Federal Reserve of deliberately causing the Great Depression. McFadden also claimed that Wall Street bankers funded the Bolshevik Revolution through the Federal Reserve banks and the European central banks with which it cooperated.
(It is noteworthy to recall that this was over forty years before Dr. Antony Sutton, the great patriot economist and historian, wrote one of his greatest works, Wall Street and The Bolshevik Revolution. DM)
McFadden moved to impeach President Herbert Hoover in 1932, and also introduced a resolution bringing conspiracy charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve. The impeachment resolution was defeated by a vote of 361 to 8; it was seen as a big vote of confidence to President Hoover from the House. According to Time magazine McFadden was “denounced and condemned by all Republicans for his ‘contemptible gesture’. The Central Press Association reported that he was “virtually read out of his party…[had] his committee posts…taken away from him…was ostracized by Republicans [and] called crazy…”. Sen. David A. Reed (R-PA) said “We intend to act to all practical purposes as though McFadden had died”. (This is how patriotic, honest Republicans are treated by their establishment leadership. See Ron Paul’s campaigns as well as Robert Taft’s and Barry Goldwater’s experiences. DM)
In 1933, he introduced House Resolution No. 158, articles of impeachment for the Secretary of the Treasury, two assistant Secretaries of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and the officers and directors of its twelve regional banks. END QUOTE.
Naturally, the vermin poured out their venom on him and he was defeated for reelection, the only time between 1912 and 1950 when his district elected a Democrat. However, he refused to bend, yield or compromise and ran again for Congress in 1936.
Apparently, he was quite effective and a great danger to the Conspiracy, as the truth is always. From Louis T. McFadden 1876 -1936 An American Hero by Richard C. Cook:
BEGIN QUOTE: McFadden may have paid with his life for his outspokenness. After he lost his congressional seat in 1934, he remained in the public eye as a vigorous opponent of the financial system; that is, until his sudden death on October 3, 1936, of a “dose” of “intestinal flu” after attending a banquet in New York City.
Reporting his death in its October 14 issue, Pelley’s Weekly stated that it had “became known among his intimates that he had suffered two [previous] attacks against his life. The first attack came in the form of two revolver shots fired at him from ambush as he was alighting from a cab in front of one of the Capital hotels. Fortunately both shots missed him, the bullets burying themselves in the structure of the cab.”
Next, ‘He became violently ill after partaking of food at a political banquet at Washington. His life was only saved from what was subsequently announced as a poisoning by the presence of a physician friend at the banquet, who at once procured a stomach pump and subjected the congressman to emergency treatment.’
Evidently the third time the assassins succeeded, and the most articulate critic of the Federal Reserve and the financiers’ control of the nation was dead. He was 60 years old. END QUOTE http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2008/07/21/louis-t-mcfadden-1876-1936-an-american-hero-by-richard-c-cook/ Well worth reading.
For a fairly unbiased biography, except for the assassination information, see:
Collective Speeches of Congressman Louis T. McFadden Omni Publications, Hawthorne, California 90250 1970 provides detailed honest records of the history of the United States from 1930 to 1934, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the Federal Reserve revolution in America and an objective view of the beginning of the Roosevelt Depression.
Here are some of his brilliant observations, made before 1936 (!) about the Federal Reserve System:
“Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.”
“From the Atlantic to the Pacific our country has been ravaged and laid waste by the evil practices of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks and the interests which control them … This is an era of economic misery, and for the conditions that caused that misery, the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks are fully liable.”
MORAL HAZARDS AND THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS
There has been talk of having Ron Paul be a vice presidential running mate for Romney, I oppose this unlikely possibility since it would create an immense moral hazard for hundreds of thousands of patriots.
The phony general election debates, which are rigged to include only the duopoly candidates, are also listed now. In a free country, all candidates who were on the ballot in a sufficient number of states to win the election, which is an unconstitutionally harsh standard to attain already, would be included in any honest debate. None of these are honest debates. Let’s hope that somebody will organize real debates, despite all of the hindrances which tend to block such activities due to unconstitutional fedgov election laws, all of which should be abolished by Congress after defunding of the Federal Election Commission.
The enemy will use its usual time worn techniques of claiming that Obama is so horrible that we must again choose the lesser of evils, Romney, in order to defeat him. The American people have been following this path for almost one hundred years. It has worked every time! We continue to get more and more evil.
I want to preface my next statement to decrease the likelihood of its being taken out of context. If I am elected to Congress and Barack Hussein Obama alias Barry Soetoro aka The Long Legged Mack-daddy is reelected, I will propose to impeach him for treason, war crimes and treating the Constitution of the United States as though it were a piece of toilet paper.
That said, it would probably be better to have Obama reelected than to have the one-worlder, neocon war monger, statist Romney be elected. Obama has done more to awaken the American people than Libertarians and other patriots have done in a decade, more even than Ron Paul. The sale of guns and ammunition, alone, is proof of this. The election of Romney, unfortunately, will put many good patriots back to sleep again while this country continues to go to Hell, perhaps five to ten percent less quickly but to Hell nevertheless. Anyone who is promoting Romney as the lesser of two evils is an enemy of liberty and should never be trusted, no matter how sincere he may be or how good his intentions are. We all know with what the road to Hell is paved.
OBAMA REELECTION PLOY OR RACE WAR?
Regarding the killing of “Black youth” Trayvon Martin by the half-white, half-Hispanic George Zimmerman, which has been blown out of proportion and distorted in such an outstanding manner, even by our enemy, the establishment media, I tend to believe that the purposes of so magnifying the death of the unarmed seventeen year old are to re-energize one of Obama’s primary election blocs and to attack our God-given right to keep and bear arms. However, the enemy could be planning the long predicted race war to try to destroy the United States.
The Constitution Party has nominated former Congressman Virgil Goode for president. Like the Libertarian Party’s 2008 presidential candidate, Mr. Goode voted for the Patriot Act and now regrets it. His Freedom Index record for his last three years in Congress was 64, 63 and 72 per cent. Congressman Ron Paul always gets 100 per cent.
Goode is a staunch advocate of a federal prohibition of online poker although the Constitution gives the government no such authority . In 2006, he cosponsored H.R. 4777, the Internet Gambling Prohibition Act, which is a total violation of the First Amendment. While he has a good record on many issues, Gary Johnson is a far superior candidate.

In continuing news about the suspicious death of right wing investigative reporter, Andrew Breitbart, a member of the Los Angeles coroner’s office has died under suspicious circumstances.

Here is an announcement which might be of interest to some of you from Major Fred Hunt.
I am Major Fred Hunt, USAFR, Commander Northern Ohio Detachment of the Selective Service System based in Cleveland. Our mission is to recruit, train and manage 184 Local Boards spanning the northern third of Ohio. This letter of inquiry is being sent to you in hopes that you may be able to offer assistance.
We now have a vacancies on the local boards that serve your community and I am in a focused search for candidates for consideration. I am hoping that you may have recommendations of people or local organizations with members who may be interested in volunteering.
Citizens with the desire for public service are very special. Local Board members are volunteers appointed by the President of the United States of America. They play an important community role closely connected with our nation’s defense. If a military draft becomes necessary, approximately 2,000 Local Boards throughout America would decide which young men in each community receive deferments, postponements, or exemptions from military service based on federal guidelines.
I appreciate your timely consideration of this request. I would like to arrange a call or meeting to discuss our needs if at all possible. The Selective Service plays a critical role in the strategic ability of our nations defense.
Major Frederick L. Hunt, Jr.
I have included the basic qualifications below as well as a boardmember application that can be returned to me or online at https://www.sss.gov/localboardmembers/bminquiry.asp . In either event, it will get to the right place, the paper copy will be faster.
