  • The Free American

    in Education

    I'm NOW seventy one. I look at the time behind me in terms of decades rather than years.  Events occured in such rapid succession that the years blend together. I have faithfully researched, reported and transcribed events, personal encounters and interviews with many men and women who have, through their books and words, made a difference in our world and have helped shape our collective futures in some way. The evidence is here. Intelligent, honest Americans know the corruption I have pointed out in my magazines, websites and radio shows. Hillary Clinton was part of the problems that led to the murder of the 17 little children and their parents in Waco, the reason I helped start the Militias! I saw how the Clinton/Bush crime families have maneuvered and ripped off Americans since they killed Kennedy and Johnson sacrificed over 50 Thousand of my Brothers in Vietnam. That oath I took in 1964 had no expiration date and that is why I supported the Militias.
