David, here it is as just a straight E-mail.
Pam, - If your copy was corrupted, this one shouldn't be.
Bill - Oregon
The time has come in America when trusting judges to behonest is not mere folly, it is dangerous.
Are you a slave under some secret form of law?All of the "STATE OF" courts, such as circuit courts that are called "courts of record" (Oregon) and all (other) muni-corp courts that admit to being (non-courts of record — even thought they might have recording devices) have made it clear that everyone in the 50 commonwealth republics are the mere sentient property (slaves) of a silent and secret owner.
If you have any doubt that statement is true — then read on and study up on the 14th amendment and the federal meaning of "US citizen" or "US person."
For those who have studied the federal definitions of "United States", "State", and "US" among other words of legal art, we are forced to draw the conclusion that the government is acting under the presumption that we are federal property on the basis that we have stated on many forms that we are "US citizens" or "US persons."
Check your social insecurity form, voter registration forms and IRS forms. You have stated (sworn) under penalties of perjury that you are a US citizen / person.
They are operating under the legal axiom that, "One who swears to a fact is to be believed." The caveat for them is, "so long as it is to the governments benefit."
Try filing an affidavit that you are not a US citizen / person. They will do everything that they can to ignore it. Many of the less educated muni-corp judges will ignore it and even imprison you for contempt for wanting to know how he can ignore your affidavit.
If you want proof that you are under slave law, it is easy to prove. All law in America is delegated to the government from the people via the constitutions.
The Oregon commonwealth republic constitutions makes this very clear.
Article 1, Bill of Absolute Governmental Limitations a.k.a. Bill of Rights, Section 21. ... nor shall any law be passed, the taking effect of which shall be made to depend upon any authority, except as provided in this Constitution;...
The law cannot be more clear, and if you have any doubts, refer to the following:
Article IV, Legislative Department, Section 21. Every act, and joint resolution shall be plainly worded, avoiding as far as practicable the use of technical terms.
There is even an ORS (Oregon Revised Statute) to that effect:
Readability of Public Writings — 183.025 State agency required to prepare public writings in readable form; public input in rulemaking; definitions. (1) Every state agency shall prepare its public writings in language that is as clear and simple as possible.
(2) The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that it is the policy of this state that whenever possible the public be involved in the development of public policy by agencies and the drafting of rules. The Legislative Assembly encourages agencies to seek public input to the maximum extent possible before giving notice of intent to adopt, amend or repeal a rule. The agency may appoint an advisory committee that will represent the interests of persons likely to be affected by the rule, or use any other means of obtaining public views that will assist the agency in drafting the rule.
(3) As used in this section:
(a) "Public writing" means any rule, form, license or notice prepared by a state agency.
(b) "State agency" means any officer, board, commission, department, division or institution in the executive or administrative branch of state government.
If you have any doubts on the law in this respect the requirement that it be clear and concise, do a web search for legal cases dealing with the "Void for Vagueness" doctrine.
Here are some:
PRO-CHOICE NETWORK V. SCHENK, 67 F3d 359 (2nd Cir. 1994)
Regulation is void for vagueness if it is so indefinite that ordinary people cannot understand that which it prohibits.
US V. NEVERS, 7 F3d 59 (5th Cir. 1993)
1. When a person of ordinary intelligence does not receive fair notice that his contemplated conduct is forbidden, prosecution for such conduct deprives him of due process.
2. "Fair warning doctrine" invokes due process rights and requires that criminal statute at issue be sufficiently definite to notify persons of reasonable intelligence that their planned conduct is criminal.
US V. MAKOWSKI, 120 F3d 1078 (9th Cir. 1997)
Due process requires statute to be sufficiently clear so as not to cause persons of common intelligence necessarily to guess at its meaning and to differ as to its application.
FCA HEALTH PLANS OF TEXAS V. LACHANCE, 191 F3d 1353 (Fed. Cir. 1999)
If terms of regulation are susceptible to more than on reasonable interpretation, then they are ambiguous.
US V. BRIERTON, 165 F3d 1133 (7th Cir. 1999)
The vagueness doctrine holds that a person cannot be held liable for conduct he could not reasonably have been expected to know was a violation of law.
US V. BALINT, 201 F3d 928 (7th Cir. 2000)
A criminal statute is unconstitutionally vague if it does not give a person of ordinary intelligence a reasonable opportunity to know what is prohibited.
One may find the above cases interesting in light of the fact that all codes, ordinances, rules and statutes, (city, county, state and federal) are written to be as vague as possible.
Here is a good question to the courts: Considering the law on vagueness, how can these be applied to me?"
One might even ask themselves how the law can be breached and the free People subjected to a system of laws and rules that clearly violate the basic principals of justice and even case law?
Lets go further with conflict of statutes so that when you go to court you will have lots of questions to ask the court.
If you go to the preface to the ORS and at the "Table of Titles," you will find the following:
"(1) Volume 1 contains the remedial code, dealing with court structure and organization and remedies (ORS chapters 1 to 55) and the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure.
(2) Volume 2 contains the civil code, dealing with relationships between individuals (ORS chapters 56 to 130).
(3) Volume 3 contains the penal code, dealing with criminal procedure, crimes generally and punishment (ORS chapters 131 to 170)."
[Included within the penal code is the criminal code, with its own subsection, which lists all offenses that are crimes under the common law and that are considered as crimes in accordance with the constitution. ORS 161.005 gives an exact listing of all true crimes in Oregon. This takes up only parts of chapters 161 thru 167.]
"(4) Volumes 4 through 12 contain the political code, dealing with the structure and organization of state and local government and with the services rendered and the regulation exercised by government (ORS chapters 171 to 838)."
The ORS can be found online at [http://landru.leg.state.or.us/ors/].
Please look carefully at # 4. This is the "political code." Please pay close attention to the fact that it relates only to state and local government (not to the people at large) and with the power of the government to regulate it’s own agencies and creations. Please also note just how many chapters that it takes up. A total of 667 or 79.6% of the whole code! The whole of the criminal code spread out over at least three times as much space as is actually needed (it has lots of "violations" interspersed with the "crimes") takes up only 0.83% of the whole code!
That means that less that 1% of the overall chapters have criminal laws that are enforceable upon the free People of the commonwealth republics! The list of crimes that apply to free People actually only accounts to less than ½ of 1% of all the written code!
On a federal level it is even less!
Under constitutional law, the government only has the power to regulate certain types of commerce, imports and exports, and its own housekeeping, but was left without any power to regulate the private activities of free men and women of the commonwealth republics, and the statutes, when carefully studied, clearly shows this.
What we are now learning is that all government in America has been replaced by sovereign municipal corporations, or as I call them, muni-corps.
From what I understand of the law, as applied to the Congress, these muni-corps are sovereign over whatever the Congress owns and puts them in charge of. If you study the cases on the 14th amendment, then it becomes clear the all muni-corps are sovereign over US citizens / person.
This is born out by the US Code (USC) TITLE 28 > PART VI > CHAPTER 176 > SUBCHAPTER A > Sec. 3002.
TITLE 28 - JUDICIARY AND JUDICIAL PROCEDURE
PART VI - PARTICULAR PROCEEDINGS
CHAPTER 176 - FEDERAL DEBT COLLECTION PROCEDURE
SUBCHAPTER A - DEFINITIONS AND GENERAL PROVISIONS
Sec. 3002. Definitions
(15) ''United States'' means -
(A) a Federal corporation;
(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or
(C) an instrumentality of the United States.
For those who had doubts out the government being converted to a corporate status, you now have their own admission. How else could it have gotten around the gold and silver law?
Businesses owned by the Congress are just that — and operate under commercial law! Congress created the corporations and therefore congress can create the rules by which their business creation will do business and how it will handle its property. Art. 4, Sect. 3, Clause 2 makes it very clear the power the Congress has over its property.
Let’s get back to the ORS. The alcohol and drug (laws) are in chapter 475. All vehicle offenses are in the 800 series. These are a long way form the criminal code at 171.
Lets consider another really good question for the court that will get you imprisoned for contempt. "If the "Criminal Code of 1971" lists all constitutional crimes, how can free People of the commonwealth republics be imprisoned for alleged offenses (actions or inactions) described outside of that code?"
Lets explore this and see if I can make it even more interesting.
Under constitutional law, a culpable mental state, (mens rea or evil mind or intent) is required to be proven before conviction and before someone can be imprisoned or otherwise punished against their will. Lets see what the ORS says about this concept of law.
(1) ORS 161.105(b) states that it is the legislative intent to not require a culpable mental state for offenses that are not a part of the Oregon Criminal Code.
(2) ORS 161.105(a) states that any offense that does not require a culpable mental state is a "violation."
(3) ORS 153.008(2) it makes it very clear that you cannot be punished for conviction of a violation.
"153.008 Violations described. (1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, an offense is a violation if any of the following apply:
(a) The offense is designated as a violation in the statute defining the offense. [Don’t forget 161.105]
b) The statute prescribing the penalty for the offense provides that the offense is punishable by a fine but does not provide that the offense is punishable by a term of imprisonment. The statute may provide for punishment in addition to a fine as long as the punishment does not include a term of imprisonment.
(c) The offense is created by an ordinance of a county, city, district or other political subdivision of this state with authority to create offenses, and the ordinance provides that violation of the ordinance is punishable by a fine but does not provide that the offense is punishable by a term of imprisonment. The ordinance may provide for punishment in addition to a fine as long as the punishment does not include a term of imprisonment.
(2) Conviction of a violation does not give rise to any disability or legal disadvantage based on conviction of a crime. "
The statutes are very clear that a free Citizen of the commonwealth republics cannot be imprisoned (jailed or otherwise held or incarcerated) for conviction of a "violation", yet our jails and prisons are full of people convicted only of violations.
Now lets look at the lawful meaning of disability:
Disability. The want of legal capability to perform an act. Term is generally used to indicate an incapacity for full enjoyment of ordinary legal rights; thus, persons under age, insane persons, and convicts are said to be under disability. Blacks Law Dictionary 5th Edition.
I think that 153.008 (2) is quite clear. Even if you are convicted of a "crime" and a "violation" at the same time, you cannot (shall not) be punished for conviction of the "violation."
Wouldn’t a mandatory fine or a term of imprisonment, such as jail, qualify as a disability or legal disadvantage? Prior to the 1999 revision there were sections that were even more clear and easy to understand regarding this. Also, under the law, jail time is considered imprisonment.
Since the ORS makes this bold and clear statement, how do the courts justify civil forfeitures for having drugs on your property — or the taking of your car without due process just because you did not have a drivers license, registration or proof of insurance on your body?
The ORS clearly states that these are only "violations" and that one shall not suffer a "legal disability" for the commission of.
Now lets look at the following statute.
"174.020 Legislative intent; general and particular provisions and intents. In the construction of a statute the intention of the legislature is to be pursued if possible; and when a general and particular provision are inconsistent, the latter is paramount to the former. So a particular intent shall control a general one that is inconsistent with it."
ORS 174.020 makes it very clear that if it ain’t part of the criminal code, its gotta’ be a "violation" and the State shall not punish you because that is the intent of the legislature.
FIY: ORS 801.555 admits again that all traffic offenses are only violations!
Now lets look at another statute of extreme importance.
174.030 Construction favoring natural right to prevail. Where a statute is equally susceptible of two interpretations, one in favor of natural right and the other against it, the former is to prevail.
Isn’t it a natural right not to be punished in a manner that was not delegated to the government from the people via the constitutions? Also here, the statutes clearly admit that they have sections that are against natural rights. By simple reading (as opposed to detailed studying) of the ORS, how is one to know what is prohibited and what isn’t?
According to well established law, the ORS is, by its own admission, void for vagueness. Here is a good question to go to jail for contempt for. "By what authority does the judge hold you accountable for rules that are "void for vagueness?"
Judges often claim to have the power to interpret the statutes, however I submit the following:
"174.010 General rule for construction of statutes. In the construction of a statute, the office of the judge is simply to ascertain and declare what is, in terms or in substance, contained therein, not to insert what has been omitted, or to omit what has been inserted; and where there are several provisions or particulars such construction is, if possible, to be adopted as will give effect to all."
How about demanding the judge tell you his authority to interpret the statutes? You bring up one thing in your favor, particularly the "violations" issue and demand to know how the judge can interpret the statutes to mean that you can be punished. The law states that it is a natural right to have the statutes interpreted in favor of the accused.
Now lets take a very quick look at the federal constitution, Article. III. Section. 2, Clause 2.
In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.
The above paragraph appears to be the ultimate defense against all charges brought by the current State governments, as they all now bring the claim in the name of the State or the ‘people" without saying which people.
Since the corporate State is bringing the claim, the law demands that it do it ex rel, in the name of the people of the commonwealth republic that it represents when the claim or case is against a free Citizen of one of said republics. So how come they don’t?
If you want to go to jail, just demand that the judge disclose his authority or ignoring that federal law.
If you don’t think that you are mere property of the Congress via its muni-corp enforcement agencies, try studying all the previous statements of law and statute that appear to clearly state that the courts shall not do what they are doing — then, thru paperwork and open court questions pressure the D.A. and the judge for answers. If you do not simply shut up and drop the issue, you will find yourself imprisoned for "contempt of court."
If the legislatures and the muni-corps (incorporated cities and towns) can make any code, ordinance, rule or statute that they want, and you can be imprisoned for simply trying to find out the agencies constitutional authority to enforce any one of their rules upon you — then you cannot claim to be free. Only mere slaves can be denied access to the law that they are being prosecuted under.
If there is one most basic right that an American must hold in order to hang on to the illusion or delusion of freedom, it must be the right to "nature and cause."
If we ever any hope to push back any of the tyranny that had over taken our government and our judicial systems, it must be done in accordance with the law — ask questions — and keep them simple!
Look at the statutes and laws that state that free People have rights. Petition the D.A. and judge, under discovery for nature and cause, for full disclosure as to how you can be prosecuted in defiance of the written law and their own statutes.
When they deny you this discovery — sue them (under the right to nature and cause) for the authority of law that allowed them to apparently violate the laws and their own statutes.
Federal codes have clearly protected this right before under what is defined as "Brady Violations".
BRADY V. MARYLAND, 373 US 83, 10 LEd2d 215, 83 SCt 1194 (1963)
Suppression of favorable evidence violates due process (GRANDDADDY CASE)
US V. ROSSY, 953 F2d 321 (7th Cir. 1992)
Evidence is "material" under BRADY if there is reasonable probability that, had evidence been disclosed to defense, result of proceeding would have been different.
US V. SEVERSON, 3 F3d 1005 (7th Cir. 1993)
Brady requirements that government disclose exculpatory evidence also applies at sentencing.
BARTHOLOMEW V. WOOD, 34 F3d 870 (9th Cir. 1994)
Prosecution’s failure to disclose material and favorable evidence to defendant will violate Due Process under BRADY, even when defendant makes no request for such evidence.
US V. ZUNO-ARCE, 44 F3d 1420 (9th Cir. 1995)
Under BRADY, exculpatory evidence cannot be kept out of hands of defense just because prosecutor does not have it, where investigating agency does.
US V. HANNA, 55 F3d 1456 (9th Cir. 1995)
1. "BRADY material" is any evidence, material either to guilt or punishment which is favorable to accused, irrespective of good faith or bad faith of prosecution.
2. Prosecutor’s duty to reveal BRADY materials does not depend on request by defense.
US V. TURNER, 104 F3d 217 (8th Cir. 1997)
US V. BLAIS, 98 F3d 647 (1st Cir. 1996)
1. BRADY error occurs when government suppresses "material" information that is favorable to defense; information is "material" if there is a reasonable probability that, had the evidence been disclosed to defense, result of proceeding would have been different.
US V. HAMILTON, 120 F3d 499 (7th Cir. 1997)
Prosecutor cannot get around the BRADY rule by keeping himself or herself in ignorance of exculpatory evidence.
JOHNSON V. GIBSON, 169 F3d 1239 (10th Cir. 1999)
LITTLE V. JOHNSON, 162 F3d 855 (5th Cir. 1998)
To establish a BRADY claim, a habeas petitioner must demonstrate that:
(1) the prosecutor suppressed evidence;
(2) the evidence was favorable to the petitioner; and
(3) the evidence was material.
US V. QUINTANILLA, 193 F3d 1139 (10th Cir. 1999)
Whether a defendant knew or should have known of the existence of exculpatory evidence is irrelevant to the prosecution’s obligation to disclose the information to the defendant.
The law cannot be more clear — you have a right to know all the truth. Incompetent attorneys can also be sued as they are considered employees of the State — they just get their money from you. Therefore they qualify as "civil employees" or "public servants."
When the State supreme Court dismisses your case without comment — petition whomever signed the dismissal for a statement of the authority of law upon which they based their decision.
When the fails — under the right to nature and cause — sue them for the information. In leu of an answer, ask for compensation for your injuries on the basis that you suffered a legal disability due to their action, and if they can’t prove their action was lawful, the constitutions guarantee your right to compensation.
Consider a Petition for a Show Cause on the part of the defendant as to why they should not be summarily dismissed and banned from ever holding an office of public trust again.
If the federal court denies you the right to nature and cause, add their name to the conspiracy suit and take the case to the supreme Court of the united States.
The question is: "Do the people have a right to nature and cause?" The overall question clarified being:
(1) "If one is injured by the actions of a public servant, does that Person have the right to know the authority of law, as delegated to that servant thru the constitutions, for the injury inflicted upon him or her by that servant?"
(2) "If that servant cannot, or will not produce proof that the legal disability (injury inflicted) was lawful, does the injured party have a right to just and reasonable compensation as guaranteed in the constitutions?"
The question has already been answered — now clarify it and put teeth into it.
Do not convolute your case in any way. It must stay clean and pure so that the Court cannot avoid making a decision that can be published.
If they refuse to decide the case — their clear and publishable decision will be — all government is now the sovereign master and beyond the power of its creators to even question, much less control, and all the People are mere sentient property (slaves).
This now becomes a new stare decises standard in American law that can be quoted and published nationally and internationally.
America will never again be able to pretend to the international community that it has the least respect for the most basic rights of its people.
If the court sees the difficulty with that scenario, then it probably will not decide the case and create an up to the date new national decision.
Instead it will probably remand it back to the state with strict orders to deal with the issue or else. If the case is worded correctly, it could mean firing (voluntary retirement) of all named judges and a confidential payoff after negotiation.
If People get on the ball and start doing thousands of these cases in a proper manner with the will or move them all the way to D.C., then either the illusion of freedom will be finally put to rest — or the government will start to be a little more concerned with justice and fair play.
I still hope and believe that the pen can be mightier than the sword — or a band of communist Nazis’s in American police uniforms blindly enforcing federal slave law upon the free born People of the 50 commonwealth republics.
I realize that quite a number of the people in police uniforms simply enjoy enforcing their will upon other people, and would do it for free if they could afford it.
The majority, I believe, are simply and blinding following orders and trusting that what they are doing is correct, while feeling that they have no choice in the matter, and who would, if give the knowledge and opportunity, be happy to be much more just and kind.
The first we need to warn and then sue for answers, right along with the D.S.’s and judges in order to get rid of them.
The others we need to try and work with, in order to try to bring honor, justice and fair play back into police procedures.
Everyone should also be aware that every city employee, form meter reader, chief of police, city attorneys to the city muni-corp judge all answer to the "city manager". He can be set up and sued for their unlawful behavior under a suit requiring him to disclose "by what authority" he is allowing his employees to engage in acts that clearly appear to violate the law.
Where does s/he get the authority to allow Les Seymour Krime, working as the muni-corp judge, ...
Then list the actions of the muni-corp administrative judge that clearly appear unconstitutional. If you do your research, a muni-corp judge, or justice of the peace, has no power to fine or imprison. No one from a non-court of record has that power under the constitutions.

Once again...because it is such an important issue...
COMMENT: "Shame! Shame!" on Republicans.
Dear A-Letter Reader:
Just how far the Republican Party and George Bush have strayed from
adherence to the US Constitution was demonstrated dramatically last
Thursday in a US House of Representatives roll call vote.
At issue was an amendment offered to a spending bill that would have
curbed one of the most objectionable provisions of the so-called PATRIOT
Act. It would have required US law enforcement to go to a regular US
court, instead of a secret court, to get a search warrant to demand
library, book store and Internet access records of people under
investigation. That was the normal procedure until the PATRIOT Act
became law in 2001.
The vote, which ended in a deadlock, 210-210, amounted to a referendum
on the PATRIOT Act and reflected deep divisions in Congress on whether
the law undercuts civil liberties. Under House rules, a tie vote defeats
the measure. As the official 15-minute voting period finished, the House
appeared to have approved by a 213-206 vote. But Republican leaders
prolonged the voting period another 23 minutes, while they twisted arms
of 10 GOP members who then switched their votes amid cries of "Shame!
Shame!" In all, 18 Republicans joined Democrats in supporting the
measure, while four Democrats crossed party lines to oppose it.
As a former member of the US House myself, and one who insisted on
adherence to the rules, there is nothing inherently wrong in the
majority acting as the Republican leaders did in order to win -- but
that speaks only to the House rules as they are applied.
What was sickening to behold was the gutless Republicans folowing orders
to oppose an improvement to one of the worst laws ever enacted by
Congress. President Bush, who has yet to cast a veto of any bill, even
threatened to veto this bill if the amendment passed. What courage!
Many parts of the PATRIOT Act are unconstitutional, as even the US
Supreme Court is beginning to agree. Terrorism is indeed a danger,
but the terrorists will have succeeded in achieving their goals if
American rights are destroyed by their own government led by spinelss
That's the way that it looks from here.

Numbers From Montana...
Posted over on the Harmonic Concordence thread - see this link
I just got back from a weeks vacation in Montana for our annual family reunion.
Here's some feedback - see below.
In a message dated 7/2/04 4:33:03 PM Central Daylight Time, Harmonic_Concordance@yahoogroups.com writes:
>>Understand that as these number codes pass through or are held in the electronic medium of the Internet, so they become extremely sensitive to the planetary consciousness grid. By sending and holding these codes in the worldwide electronic system, they form a Light pattern that serves as an integrational field for passing star path quantums of consciousness into the planetary mind.
The numbers and identification symbols are as follows:
447689001: six silver bands of light surrounding a golden egg
380905224: a blue lotus flower suspended in the starry vault of Orion
105802291: a white rose as seen from directly above the center point of its full blossom, containing 72 petals with a diamond at the point of each petal>>
I picked this "White Rose" number 105802291 since the prime of word Rose (9615) = 641 prime X 15 is the exact number of days that separate my birth, 19580205, from the birth of my wife, Maribeth, 195911008. The "Rose Prime" of 641 has a unique quality in that when you add or subtract it from any day on the calendar you will move backward or forward 89 prime days on the calendar - see the explanation of the prime of 89 below.
We can derive the "White Rose" prime from 105802291 as follows:
105802291 = 7901 prime X 13391 (1913 prime X 7)
The end of the 92nd Cycle of the "White Rose" prime of 7901 days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ on August 11th in 6 BC fell on 19841008 which was the 113th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
92 = 23 prime X 4
23 corresponds to I (9) Am (14) = 23 prime which is the Lord God's original name and title given to Mose on Mt. Sinai.
113 is a prime number that corresponds to "I Am One" as follows:
I (9) Am (14) One (655) = 678 = 113 prime X 6
Note also that the 678th prime is 5069 which is the prime of Venus (45531) = 5059 prime X 9.
November 8th is also the Divine Conception Day of the Lord God Jesus Christ in 7 BC. This day is always 89 days from the Divine Birthdate, August 11th (6 BC) and 89 days from my birth, February 5th.
89 is the prime of Leo (356) which is the astrological sign for the Divine Birthmonth of August - ie. Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4
Montana officially became the 41st state of our country in "The 89 Year" of 1889 on the Divine Conception Day, November 8, 1889.
41 is a prime number that corresponds to "I Am the light of the world" from John 8:12 as follows:
I (9) Am (14) the (285) light (39782) of (66) the (285) world (56934) = 97375 = 41 prime X 2375
My mother was born in Denton Montana on 19280301 and was raised in two houses in Billings - 430 Burlington and 205 Avenue D.
430 = 43 prime X 10
43 corresponds to "The Lamb of God" as follows:
The (285) Lamb (3142) of (66) God (764) = 4257 = 43 prime X 99
205 = 41 "I Am the light of the world" prime X 5
205 also corresponds to 2/05 which is the mo/day I was born in 1958 which was at the beginning of the 23rd "I Am" cycle of 89 the "Prime of Leo (356)" years - see below.
The end of the 17905th Cycle of 41 prime days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ - August 11th in 6 BC - fell yesterday, 20040708, which was the day my family returned from Montana.
The flight we flew back on from Denver was United # 252 which was scheduled to leave at 3:55 pm which is one (1) less than Leo (356) so I paid attention to what was going on.
In the morning a semi-truck passed me from behind while I was running on King Avenue East in Billings Montana at exactly 8:11 am Chicago time which corresponds to August 11th - 8/11 - the Divine Birthdate of the Lord God Jesus Christ. The number on the back of the semi was 76 which corresponds to the english word Go (76). Two (2) cycles of Go (76) days prior to yesterday brought us to 20040207 which was the 72nd birthday of Dean Fagerstrom, Founder of the Center of Sacred Studies which has been in receipt of this Divine Science of Numerical Correspondences for the past 35+ years. 20040207 happens to also be at the end of the 31911th Cycle of 23 "I Am" prime days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ on August 11th in 6 BC.
20040207 was 20470 = 890 X 23 "I Am" prime days from my late Father's 23rd birthday, 19480112 which fell at the end of the 31021st cycle of 23 days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ.
890 corresponds to "God In Us" as follows:
God (764) In (95) Us (31) = 890 = 89 prime X 10
And if you happened to be in the little town of Babb Montana - just 10 miles south of the Canadian border and 9 miles from the town of St. Mary Montana - on highway 89 in northwest Montana you will find a little Catholic Church serving the local Indian community which sits high on a hill and actually held in place by steel cables so it doesn't get blown away by the high winds that roar throught that country. High on the wall inside that church in Babb Montana is a banner that proclaims "God In Us".
Highway 89 X 10 miles inside the border is Babb Montana which equals 890 which corresponds to "God In Us" which is proclaimed inside that little Catholic Church on the hill - see above.
My extended family has around 400 acres of land with a river running throught it - the Shields River - as well as Highway 89 exactly 13.1 miles north of Interstate 90 in south central Montana about 20 miles northest of Livingston. The address of our cabin is 1310 Highway 89, Clyde Park Montana.
1310 = 131 prime X 10
131 is the prime of.....
ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5
Aphax (17816) = 131 prime X 136 - the name of the famous gentleman mathematicial from the area around Thebes Egypt in 2300 BC who's most famous mathematical discovery was that the Lord God of creation was going to be born here on this earth on the 11th day of one of the 12 months of the year.
Anglion (1573965) = 131 prime X 12015 - the name of the Heavenly Society commissioned by the Lord God Jesus Christ on 17720127 and overseen by Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) whose mission is to return the Divine Science of Numerical Correspondences to our world to the honor and glory of the Lord God Jesus Christ.
Justus (131231) Dean (4515) Fagerstrom (6175912964) = 6176048710 = 131 prime X 47145410
United Flight #252 touched down here in Chicago at exactly 7:06 pm which corresponds to 7/6 (76) which corresponds to the english word "GO."
Now let's tie in the semi-truck passed me from behind while I was running on King Avenue East in Billings Montana at exactly 8:11 am Chicago time as follows:
There are EXACTLY 655 mintutes separating 8:11 am from 7:06 pm each day as follows:
49 minutes from 8:11 am to 9:00 am
600 minutes from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm
6 mintues from 7:00 pm to 7:06 pm.
49 + 600 + 6 = 655
655 corresponds to ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5
My wife, Maribeth, called 303 Cab Company and low and behold a russian fellow by the name of Vladimir "Lynx" Zuravel in cab # 89 picked us up to drive us back to our home at 3242 Harrison Street here in Evanston. I had a very nice chat with Vladimir about Russia, communism, freedom, etc. I told him about how special the prime number 89 was and said that I looked forward to having a cup of coffee with him in the future to learn more about his background, etc.
Vladimir was 14149 days young yesterday - he was born on 19651012 on the 473rd anniversary of Christopher Columbus' discovery/conquest of the New World in 1492.
19651012 was 38 years prior to the Chicago Marathon I ran last October 12th on the 511th anniversary of Columbus' discovery of the New World. The year 1965 was the last 131 prime of "Aphax/One/Anglion" cycle year = 131 prime X 15.
19651012 - 19580205 - my birth = 2806 = 61 the prime of Christ (389912) X 46 - and 46 = 23 "I Am" X 2.
19651012 was 23 "I Am" days from the 11th anniversary of Dean Fagerstrom's first divine encounter with Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) on September 19th in 1954.
14149 is a prime number which on my calendar from 19580205 takes us to 19961101 which was 82 = 41 "I Am the light of the world" prime X 2 days from the Divine Birthdate, August 11th, of the Lord God Jesus Christ. My late father, Frederick Smart Jr., passed/ascended into heaven on 19960903 which was 23 "I Am" prime days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate of the Lord God Jesus Christ. And 82 days from 19960122 was my father's 72nd birthday, 19960122 which mirrors 20040207, Dean Fagerstrom's 72nd birthday 2 X Go (76) = 152 days from yesterday. There are always 14 days between my father's birth, 1/22, and my birth. And there are 149 prime days from the day I was born, 19580205, and July 4th which is the day my father's father was born as well as the birth of our son, Thomas on 19970704 which was 149 prime days from 19970122, my father's 72nd birthday.
473 prime days X 2 days prior to Vladimir's birth was 19630311 which is the 3/11 mo/day which mirrors 311 prime which is the 65th prime which corresponds to the english word ON (65). The year 1963 is my "corrected" spiritual birthyear which accounts for the 2334 days in BC time that the Lord God Jesus Christ lived from his birth on August 11th in 6 BC. 1963 also is 151 prime X 13 and the number 151 corresponds to "God is One" as follows:
God (764) is (91) One (655) = 1510 = 151 prime X 10.
20040708 - 151 "God Is One" prime X 11 = 19960830 which is the day that my father and mother arrived here in Evanston/Chicago for the weekend prior to his passing/ascension on 9/3 to commemorate the passing/ascension of my godmother, Sally Burnham, who was the wife of the great grandson of the famous Chicago School of Architecture architect Daniel Burnham.
My mother's mother passed away on 19961213 whch was exactly 101 prime days from my father's passing on 9/3. This 101 prime cycle was/is the same cycle that goes all the way back to the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ on August 11th in 6 BC. The month/day of 12/13 in the year 1996 was the exact same day that my wife's father, Gustav Bereolos of Hammond Indiana, passed/ascended into heaven 19 years prior in 1977.
12/13 corresponds to 1213 prime which corresponds to phrase from Matthew 28:20 "Lo I am with you always" as follows:
Lo (36) I (9) Am (14) with (5928) you (763) always (135171) = 141921 = 1213 prime X 117
And if you add 1213 "Lo I am with you always" prime days to 12/13 you will come to April 9th which is the Glorification-resurrection of the Lord God Jesus Christ's Divine Human in - 30 AD 2 days from his crucifixion on 4/7 - in the 4th year following.
There are so many examples of these Divine Correspondences that fill to overflowing our daily lives. All we need is a willing/humble heart and soul to be able to freely receive and share the same with others using these simple procedures and techniques which are contained in this ancient science which used to thrive in our world before it was profaned by mankind and removed from our understanding according to the Divine Providence and Order of the Lord God Jesus Christ.
I will share one final example in this note relating to the "I Am One" prime of 113 as follows......
On Saturday July 3rd my wife and three sons drove from The Comfort Inn along highway 212 which goes through the center of Red Lodge Montana - elevation 5555 feet which is 275 = 55 X 5 feet from 5280 feet which constitutes ONE (655) mile. Note that the fives (5's) are significant since we are living in "The Fifth Age" or "New Jerusalem Age" which began on 19790429. 5555 days prior to 19790429 was 19640212 which is the 2/12 mo/day which mirrors highway # 212 which goes through Red Lodge and up over the Bear Tooth Highway/Pass which then descends into Yellowstone Park.
The end of the 129th Cycle of 5555 days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ on August 11th in 6 BC fell 555 days prior to my birth which was 19560730. 129 = 43 "The Lamb of God" prime X 3. And the end of the 131st Cycle of 5555 days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ fell 6157 days prior to The Harmonic Concordance Day, 20031108.
6157 = 131 prime X 47
131 is the prime of ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5 - among others....
And 47 is the prime of Truth (29328) = 47 prime X 624
Note that July 3rd was the 239th prime day from/including The Harmonic Concordance Day, 20031108. The Lord God Jesus Christ was crucified on April 7th in 30 AD which was the 239th day of his 36th year here on this earth. The actual days of separation between these dates is 20031108 + 239 prime days = 20040704.
The Bear Tooth Highway is a spectacular highway which was completed in 1936 which was year ONE (1) of the 23 "I Am" year cycle that ended in the year 1959 which is the year that my wife was born on November 8th, the Divine Conception Day of the Lord God Jesus Christ in 7 BC. The highway peaks at 10947 feet which rises is 5392 feet above Red Lodge's 5555 elevation.
5392 = 337 prime X 16
23 "I Am" prime X 337 prime days from 20040703 = 20250922 which was the 163rd prime anniversary from the day that the Emancipation Proclamation was read to the world for the first time in 1862 during the Civil War administration of Abraham Lincoln. 163 is a prime number that corresponds to "I am the Lord thy God"
I (9) Am (14) the (285) Lord (3694) thy (287) God (764) = 5053 = 163 prime X 31
The 2177th Cycle of 337 prime days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ - August 11th in 6 BC - fell 267 days prior to 20040101 which was 20030409, the 1973rd prime anniversary of the Glorification-Ressurection Day of the Lord God Jesus Christ's Divine Human in the 2003 - "I Am" prime if you remove the conjunctive two zeros - year. 267 = 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" X 3.
337 prime days from 20030409 brought us to 20040311 which is the 3/11 (311) mo/day which is the 65th (ON) prime number. And 20040311 was/is exactly 114 days from 20040703 which is ONE (1) plus 113 "I Am One" prime days.
Bear Tooth Pass's elevation is 10947 which is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" X 123 (123 = 41 "I Am the light of the world" X 3) feet above Sea (151) "God Is One" level.
One year ago from Jackson Hole in route to Billings Montana my entire family missed the sign for the Beartooth highway pass while driving on 6/29 so we/I was called to make this trip and be sure to be there this year.
We arrived at the pass and began to take pictures at just after noon Montana time. Within a few minutes after taking pictures, throwing a few snowballs and playing around in the rocks our oldest son, Frederick, announced he wanted to climb up this local small peak. So we all followed and within a few minutes we were all up on top at exactly 12:09 pm - 1:09 pm Chicago time. The entire experienced wrapped up at exactly 1:13 pm Chicago time which mirrors 113 "I Am One" prime.
I recorded all of this on our video camera. Then I received the thought that this hr/min 113 prime number corresponded to the same 113 day wave that connects my birth with our firstborn son, Frederick IV, and our thirdborn son, Andrew as follows:
19580205 + 113 "I Am One" X 116 days = 19931226 our son Frederick's birth
19580205 + 113 "I Am One" X 141 days = 20010920 our son Andrew's birth
So while still on the top of this local peak above the Beartooth Highway pass I calculated the following:
20040703 - 19580205 = 16950 = 113 "I Am One" prime X 150 days
Since this day, 20040703, was at the end of the 150th Cycle of "I Am One" days from my birth, this meant that July 4th, the 228th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, was Day ONE (1) of the 151st "God is One" Cycle of 113th "I Am One" days since my birth - which equals 151 prime which corresponds to the word Sea (151) where all waters come to ONE (1).
If you read up on the weather that has hit Montana during the past week you will discover one of the most amazing weeks of storms, wind, thunder and lightning amidst a wonderful dose of great sunny days with cool-to-warm temperatures. Huge storms with great wind, rain and thunder seemed to preceed every important event during our weeklong stay in Montana. The timing of these storms was amazing to behold. We never had a problem watching the rodeo in Livingston that evening on the 3rd of July or blowing off our own fireworks at the cabin near Clyde Park on the 4th the next day, but HUGE rain/thunder and wind preceeded and followed the Livingston rodeo and fireworks as well as our own celebration fireworks in the Shields River Valley the next day.
On July 7th, Aphax's birthday, I was called to climb a local peak of rocks nestled near a divide in the Brackett Creek valley to the west of Clyde Park. I got up there by 7:55 am Chicago time and stayed there through the passing of 8:11 am in commemoration/prayer of the Divine Birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ, August 11th. 811 prime days from 20040707 will be 20060926 which is 23 "I Am" x 2 days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate. 811 X 2 = 1622 days from 20040707 will be 20081215 which is 13023 - the number of days that the Lord God Jesus Christ lived from August 11th in 6 BC until he passed/ascended into heaven on April 7th in 30 AD - days from 20440811, the Divine Birthdate. Seven (7) cycles of 811 prime days prior to 20040707 brings us to 19881221 which was the Winter Solstice Day that is always "The Leo (356th) Day" of each year.
If you ever travell through I-90 - which is ONE (1) from the prime of Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4 - in Montana from east to west you will suddenly come upon the first FULL view of The Crazy Mountains at EXACTLY mile # 389 which corresponds to Chi (389) which is the greek letter "X" which stands for "Christos" which is where the english "Christ" originated from. The Crazy Mountains is one of three mountain ranges which we see from our Cabin nestled at 1310 Highway 89 which is 2 miles south of Clyde Park Montana. The Crazy Mountains are very unique in that Highway 89 - the prime of Leo (356) - runs north/south along the western slope and Higheay 191 - the prime of God (764) - runs north/south along the eastern slope.
Highway 191 and Highway 89 come together with Interstate 90 at mile marker 340 along I-90 from Montana's western border whch is ONE (1) from mile marker 339 which corrresponds to 113 "I Am One" prime.
191 + 89 + 1 = 281 prime
281 prime corresponds to the Lord God Jesus Christ's spiritual numerical designator which is the "corrected" year He was born in Year ONE (1) as opposed to year 6 BC.
2 corresponds to day 11 = 1 + 1 = 2.
8 corresponds to the 8th month of August
1 corresponds to year One (1)
The end of Cycle 2611 of 281 prime days since the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ - August 11th in 6 BC - fell 225 days prior to 20040101 - which means that the end of the 2612th cycle of 281 days fell on 20040226 which is ONE (1) day from Ash Wednesday, 2/25. Also, note that the 2/26 mo/day corresponds to 226 = 113 " I Am One" prime X 2.
One (1) plus 131 "the prime of Aphax/One/Anglion" days from 20040226 brought us to 20040707, Aphax's birthday. And 2/27 is the 23rd "I Am" prime day from my 46th birthday.
One (1) plus 131 "the prime of Aphax/One/Anglion" days prior to 20040226 was 20031017 which was the day that there was a terrible fire here in Chicago at 69 West Washington Street that killed 6 individuals, one of which ran with me in the Chicago Marathon on 10/12 which was the 511th anniversary of Columbus' discovery of America in 1492.
And the completion of the 23rd "I Am" prime day cycle from/including 20041017 brought us to The Harmonic Concordance Day, 20031108 which was 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from the Divine Birthdate, August 11th, and 89 prime "Prime of Leo (356)" days from my 46th birthday, 2/5. The Harmonic Concordance Day, 20031108 was also the 114th anniversary of Montana's statehood - 114 = 113 "I Am One" plus One (1) years - as well as my wife, Maribeth's 44th birthday, as well as the 2010th year since the Divine Conception Day of the Lord God Jesus Christ in 7 BC. My wife's age of 44 plus my then current age of 45 added up to 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days on the Harmonic Concordance Day. Also, my parents - my father Frederick Jr. and my mother Colleen - were married on 19510628 which is on the same 131 "Prime of Aphax/One/Anglion" wave that goes all the way back to the birth of the Lord God Jesus Christ on August 11th in 6 BC.
The end of the 5604th cycle of the 131 "Prime of Aphax/One/Anglion" will be 20040727 which is exactly 23 "I Am" days from 20040704 which ws day One (1) of the 229th anniversary of The Declaration of Independence which was the document that founded this great nation on the principal of the Divine Sovereignty of ALL individuals who receive all our rights and freedoms from an Almighty Creator Lord God who is our ONE (1) Father in Heaven.
20040727 also happens to be the 5th birthday of our beloved BIG, fat and happy 1/2 Simese and 1/2 American Tabby tomcat, Simon.
We got Simon on 20040228 which was 23 "I Am" days from 2/5, my 46th birthday. The first full complete day of Simon's life in his new home with the Smart Family was 2/29 which corresponds to 229 prime which corresponds to Simon (19465) as follows:
Simon (19465) = 229 prime X 85.
The Divine Order and Providence of the Lord God Jesus Christ is pefect, whole, unified and ONE (1)!!
It's time to freely receive, share and celebrate these divine gifts that flow from the reception and sharing of these numbers which connect us all as one, in one, with one, for one, etc.
Peace and God Bless,
My First Wild Week with "Fahrenheit 9/11"...
Sunday, July 4th, 2004
My First Wild Week with "Fahrenheit 9/11"...
By Michael Moore
Where do I begin? This past week has knocked me for a loop. "Fahrenheit
9/11," the #1 movie in the country, the largest grossing documentary ever.
My head is spinning. Didn't we just lose our distributor 8 weeks ago? Did
Karl Rove really fail to stop this? Is Bush packing?
Each day this week I was given a new piece of information from the press
that covers Hollywood, and I barely had time to recover from the last tidbit
before the next one smacked me upside the head:
** More people saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" in one weekend than all the people who
saw "Bowling for Columbine" in 9 months.
** "Fahrenheit 9/11" broke "Rocky III’s" record for the biggest box office
opening weekend ever for any film that opened in less than a thousand
** "Fahrenheit 9/11" beat the opening weekend of "Return of the Jedi."
** "Fahrenheit 9/11" instantly went to #2 on the all-time list for largest
per-theater average ever for a film that opened in wide-release.
How can I ever thank all of you who went to see it? These records are
mind-blowing. They have sent shock waves through Hollywood – and, more
importantly, through the White House.
But it didn't just stop there. The response to the movie then went into the
Twilight Zone. Surfing through the dial I landed on the Fox broadcasting
network which was airing the NASCAR race live last Sunday to an audience of
millions of Americans -- and suddenly the announcers were talking about how
NASCAR champ Dale Earnhardt, Jr. took his crew to see “Fahrenheit 9/11” the
night before. FOX sportscaster Chris Myers delivered Earnhardt’s review
straight out of his mouth and into the heartland of America: “He said hey,
it'll be a good bonding experience no matter what your political belief.
It's a good thing as an American to go see.” Whoa! NASCAR fans – you can’t
go deeper into George Bush territory than that! White House moving vans –
START YOUR ENGINES!
Then there was Roger Friedman from the Fox News Channel giving our film an
absolutely glowing review, calling it “a really brilliant piece of work, and
a film that members of all political parties should see without fail.”
Richard Goldstein of the Village Voice surmised that Bush is already
considered a goner so Rupert Murdoch might be starting to curry favor with
the new administration. I don't know about that, but I’ve never heard a
decent word toward me from Fox. So, after I was revived, I wondered if a
love note to me from Sean Hannity was next.
How about Letterman’s Top Ten List: “Top Ten George W. Bush Complaints About
10. That actor who played the President was totally unconvincing
9. It oversimplified the way I stole the election
8. Too many of them fancy college-boy words
7. If Michael Moore had waited a few months, he could have included the part
where I get him deported
6. Didn't have one of them hilarious monkeys who smoke cigarettes and gives
people the finger
5. Of all Michael Moore's accusations, only 97% are true
4. Not sure - - I passed out after a piece of popcorn lodged in my windpipe
3. Where the hell was Spider-man?
2. Couldn't hear most of the movie over Cheney's foul mouth
1. I thought this was supposed to be about dodgeball
But it was the reactions and reports we received from theaters around the
country that really sent me over the edge. One theatre manager after another
phoned in to say that the movie was getting standing ovations as the credits
rolled – in places like Greensboro, NC and Oklahoma City -- and that they
were having a hard time clearing the theater afterwards because people were
either too stunned or they wanted to sit and talk to their neighbors about
what they had just seen. In Trumbull, CT, one woman got up on her seat after
the movie and shouted "Let's go have a meeting!" A man in San Francisco took
his shoe off and threw it at the screen when Bush appeared at the end.
Ladies’ church groups in Tulsa were going to see it, and weeping afterwards.
It was this last group that gave lie to all the yakking pundits who, before
the movie opened, declared that only the hard-core "choir" would go to see
"Fahrenheit 9/11." They couldn't have been more wrong. Theaters in the Deep
South and the Midwest set house records for any film they’d ever shown. Yes,
it even sold out in Peoria. And Lubbock, Texas. And Anchorage, Alaska!
Newspaper after newspaper wrote stories in tones of breathless disbelief
about people who called themselves “Independents” and “Republicans” walking
out of the movie theater shaken and in tears, proclaiming that they could
not, in good conscience, vote for George W. Bush. The New York Times wrote
of a conservative Republican woman in her 20s in Pensacola, Florida who
cried through the film, and told the reporter: “It really makes me question
what I feel about the president... it makes me question his motives…”
Newsday reported on a self-described “ardent Bush/Cheney supporter” who went
to see the film on Long Island, and his quiet reaction afterwards. He said,
"It's really given me pause to think about what's really going on. There was
just too much - too much to discount." The man then bought three more
tickets for another showing of the film.
The Los Angeles Times found a mother who had “supported [Bush] fiercely” at
a theater in Des Peres, Missouri: “Emerging from Michael Moore's ‘Fahrenheit
9/11,’ her eyes wet, Leslie Hanser said she at last understood…. ‘My
emotions are just....’ She trailed off, waving her hands to show confusion.
‘I feel like we haven't seen the whole truth before.’"
All of this had to be the absolute worst news for the White House to wake up
to on Monday morning. I guess they were in such a stupor, they "gave" Iraq
back to, um, Iraq two days early!
News editors told us that they were being "bombarded" with e-mails and calls
from the White House (read: Karl Rove), trying to spin their way out of this
mess by attacking it and attacking me. Bush spokesman Dan Bartlett had told
the White House press corps that the movie was "outrageously false" -- even
though he said he hadn't seen the movie. He later told CNN that "This is a
film that doesn't require us to actually view it to know that it's filled
with factual inaccuracies." At least they're consistent. They never needed
to see a single weapon of mass destruction before sending our kids off to
Many news shows were more than eager to buy the White House spin. After all,
that is a big part of what "Fahrenheit" is about -- how the lazy, compliant
media bought all the lies from the Bush administration about the need to
invade Iraq. They took the Kool-Aid offered by the White House and rarely,
if ever, did our media ask the hard questions that needed to be asked before
the war started.
Because the movie "outs" the mainstream media for their failures and their
complicity with the Bush administration -- who can ever forget their
incessant, embarrassing cheerleading as the troops went off to war, as
though it was all just a game -- the media was not about to let me get away
with anything now resembling a cultural phenomenon. On show after show, they
went after me with the kind of viciousness you would have hoped they had had
for those who were lying about the necessity for invading a sovereign nation
that was no threat to us. I don't blame our well-paid celebrity journalists
-- they look like a bunch of ass-kissing dopes in my movie, and I guess I'd
be pretty mad at me, too. After all, once the NASCAR fans see "Fahrenheit
9/11," will they ever believe a single thing they see on ABC/NBC/CBS news
In the next week or so, I will recount my adventures through the media this
past month (I will also be posting a full FAQ on my website soon so that you
can have all the necessary backup and evidence from the film when you find
yourself in heated debate with your conservative brother-in-law!). For now,
please know the following: Every single fact I state in "Fahrenheit 9/11" is
the absolute and irrefutable truth. This movie is perhaps the most
thoroughly researched and vetted documentary of our time. No fewer than a
dozen people, including three teams of lawyers and the venerable one-time
fact-checkers from The New Yorker went through this movie with a fine-tooth
comb so that we can make this guarantee to you. Do not let anyone say this
or that isn't true. If they say that, they are lying. Let them know that the
OPINIONS in the film are mine, and anyone certainly has a right to disagree
with them. And the questions I pose in the movie, based on these irrefutable
facts, are also mine. And I have a right to ask them. And I will continue to
ask them until they are answered.
