Rest Easy, Robert Beecher: 1954 – 2017

“Are you willing to make the sacrifices necessary to assure our freedoms? Would you stand next to a fellow American to assure his freedom and rights? Would you come to the defense of a man and his family under attack by unjust laws and actions of this government out of control and save their lives? Will you support your brethren and yourself in preparing for this final assault? Can you put all that you have at stake for something you truly believe in? Can you tell yourself that you have finally had enough of this shit and that you are ready to do something about it?”

– Mike Freebyrd, from The Essence of a Patriot


The late Robert Beecher.


Remember Robert Beecher? He was an American patriot who was charged by the federal government for allegedly violating 18 USC § 922(g) for the victimless crime of “felon in possession of firearm,” which was originally intended to target only mobsters during alcohol Prohibition. Beecher eventually took a plea agreement in order to spare his daughter, Jessica Beecher, from prosecution herself; his 10-year sentence began in 2015, and so he was expected to be released sometime in 2025.

As a 60-year-old political prisoner, Robert Beecher was a grandfather who was not exactly in the best of health. In fact, Jessica wrote the following for the activist legal defense fund that was created on May 23rd of 2014:


“He sits in Bulloch County Jail, being denied medical care, and waiting for his day in court…[w]e really believe that he is being singled out for his vocal political beliefs, and worry that if he does not secure a solid legal defense, that he will die in prison.” [emphasis added]


Furthermore, the March 12th, 2015 judgment in a criminal case said, in part:


“That the defendant be designated to a Bureau of Prisons facility in Jesup, Georgia; subject to capacity or any regulation which would affect such a designation. It is recommended that the defendant be evaluated by Bureau of Prisons officials to establish his participation in an appropriate program of substance abuse treatment and counseling during his term of incarceration.” [emphasis added]


Obviously, there was already concern about the prison bureaucrats doping Beecher up so he couldn’t tell the other inmates why he was a political prisoner, as if he were a Russian dissident shoved into a psikhushka (Soviet mental hospital). Due to the lack of transparency (despite enough of his court documents getting released, thankfully), there is no way to know for certain whether such “treatment” would’ve been potentially in violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments.

A Rebuttal to Troy Southgate’s Response to Shane Radliff’s Critique of the National-Anarchist Manifesto

“The foundation of this country, then, rests upon an understanding that the purpose of the Constitution, and the country, is to provide a home for those of the class, ‘We the People.’ That others who choose to assimilate into the American Culture do so with that understanding, and the understanding that they are the beneficiaries of all privileges and immunities, though only those rights specifically granted. It can also be concluded that any who have designs contrary to the support and continuation of the United States, as intended by the Framers, and described herein, are inconsistent with the purpose of the country, and, as such, are against the Constitution and should be deemed unacceptable and unwanted visitors.”

– Gary Hunt, from “We the People,” But, Who Are We?



Troy Southgate began a relatively newer anarchic school of thought, dubbed “National-Anarchism,” with the publication of the National-Anarchist Manifesto (N-AM). Always interested in what other kinds of anarchists believe, Shane Radliff decided to do a two part Liberty Under Attack (LUA) broadcast covering the highlights of the N-AM with his co-host, Jason Paradise, and I must say, having listened to both of them, I thought Shane and Jason did a superb job giving him a fair shake. That being said, their critique of Southgate’s manifesto garnered a response from the man himself, so in the interest of jumping into the fray late in the game, I’d like to rebut Southgate’s response to the LUA critique of the N-AM.

Only by Blood and Suffering?

“What will happen when the Big Machine is missing pieces? Orders won’t get processed at the Walmart distribution center. The 18-wheelers won’t make deliveries to [grocery] stores. Gas stations will run out of fuel. Some policemen and firemen won’t show up for work, having decided that protecting their own families is their top priority. Power lines will get knocked down in windstorms, and there will be nobody to repair them. Crops will rot in the fields and orchards because there will be nobody to pick them, or transport them, or magically bake them into Pop-Tarts, or stock them on your supermarket shelf. The Big Machine will be broken. Does this sound scary? Sure it does, and it should. The implications are huge.”

James Rawles



Remember LaVoy Finicum? Don’t feel bad if you haven’t, most people have forgotten about him by now given that it’s been over a year since he died, so it’s an understatement to say that he’s been absent from the news cycle, despite his historic role during the Statist Turf War of 2016 as a member of Citizens for Constitutional Freedom (C4CF), perhaps most infamously as the #TarpMan. Apparently, Finicum wrote a novel so he could earn passive income in order to finance his legal contentions with the Bureau of Land Management, who had already fined him $1,458 before eventually tacking on an additional $5,000.

In many ways, Finicum’s fiction reminds me of James Rawles’ Patriots novel, in that both of them dealt with TEOTWAWKI doom porn scenarios. Unfortunately, it’s almost as if Finicum wrote two different novellas and then squished them together in order to have a single novel; the first half focused on the Bonham siblings (Cat, Dan, HayLee-H, and KayLee-K) bugging out from the cities and getting to the retreat stronghold of their family ranch, whereas the second half was all about how their father, Jake, virtually defeated single-handedly the swarms of government forces during the Long Valley War. By the time Jake is laying waste to public servants attempting to overrun his ranch, the character development invested in the four siblings appears to have been, well, forgotten. Continue reading

Solar Cycles & Earth’s Weakening Magnetic Field (2009)

Today’s article by Alex Ansary was published in Nexus Magazine’s April-May 2009 issue. It’s been postulated by various individuals over the years that solar cycles influence human behavior, and if accurate, the implications for strategic maneuvers becomes quite profound, especially in terms of timing. This republication, and concomitant spoken discourse narrated by yours truly, is done with the permission of the original author.

If you were thinking that the only things we have to be concerned about include wars, famines and economic crashes, think again. Recent scientific discoveries are indicating that this next solar flare cycle could be powerful enough to disrupt our planet’s entire electric grid. In this report I document a number of changes taking place with the Earth’s magnetic field, the Sun and our solar system while explaining some of the concerns that today’s leading scientists have voiced. I also examine how humankind may be affected energetically. Continue reading

Privacy Afloat (1997)

Today’s article is a chapter within Bill Kaysing’s 1997, Privacy: How to Get It, How to Enjoy It.” Given that there is a chapter in Section II of Rayo’s Vonu: The Search for Personal Freedom,” about living full time in a boat, I’d figure that Kaysing’s experience and observations would be valuable to those pursuing vonuence. This republication of Kaysing’s chapter is hereby done under the intention of Fair Use; no copyright infringement intended.

There is a saying that there are only two happy days in a boat owner’s life: the day he buys it and the day he sells it. While there is some validity to the aphorism, it’s not entirely true. Otherwise, what would account for the fact that millions of people throughout the world prefer to live on water rather than land? The author is one of those millions; and he is happy to tell you his reasons.

The author says the sensation of slipping between the clean sheets of the full-size double bunk in the aft cabin of his boat cannot be obtained on land. Why? Because as soon as he settles down, he can hear the small waves slapping against the hull; and he can watch the water lights, reflections of light from the waves playing on the overhead beams, and smell the fresh air pouring in through the hatch that opens up to the stars up above. Now, that’s a trip in every sense of the word!

There is much more to it than that; but this particular delight is high on the author’s list of floating favorites. He could easily write a book about the fun he has had in the last five years with the venerable Flying Goose, a 52-year-old Coast Guard cutter now converted to a houseboat. He finds a simple beauty in just being aboard that “good-vibes” old vessel. However, the major focus of his enthusiasm is the quality and amount of privacy available in living afloat.

Mass Mind Control Through Network Television: Are Your Thoughts Your Own? (2005)

Today’s article by Alex Ansary was originally published at Outside the Box in December of 2005. Given the recent fad by the constitutionalist patriot movement of “humping the Trump,” I figured it would be good to remind them all what an actual citizen-journalist wrote back when George W. Bush was in the White House. This republication, and concomitant spoken discourse narrated by yours truly, is done with the permission of the original author.

Why do countless American people go along with the War on Iraq? Why do so many people call for a police state control grid? A major component to a full understanding of why this kind of governmental and corporate corruption is to discover the modern science of mind control and social engineering. It’s baffling to merely glance at the stacks of documentation that this world government isn’t being constructed for the greater good of humanity. Although there are a growing number of people waking up the reality of our growing transparent soft cage, there seems to be just enough citizens who are choosing to remain asleep. Worse yet, there are even those who were at least partially awake at one time but found it necessary to return to the slumber of dreamland. Continue reading

Libertarians & Authoritarians: Defined & Explained

Today’s article is a redux of Rayo’s Libertarians & Coercivists,” which was originally published in the third issue of Eleutherian Forum on January 16th of 1967. It has been mirrored since then, but upon re-reading it for an upcoming episode of The Vonu Podcast, I realized that it really should’ve been rewritten (and it now makes sense to me as to why Jon Fisher did not include it in Vonu: The Search for Personal Freedom).


A libertarian is one who advocates for a general exemption from coercion. Such an individual enjoys an anti-political philosophy whereby he adheres himself to the non-aggression principle and the self-ownership axiom. The non-aggression principle (NAP) absolutely forbids all coercion and initiatory force; yet, self-defense, including the defense of innocent third parties, is in accordance with the NAP. Self-ownership justifies the existence of the free market by upholding the private property ethic. Continue reading

The American Income Tax

“The effect of the ability-to-pay doctrine in practice is to discourage production. If an increasing portion of what I earn is taken from me – and that is the intent of the graduated income tax – then my inclination will be to cut down on my earnings. Men work to satisfy their desires, not to pay taxes. There is no sense in keeping my barn full if the highwayman empties it regularly and I have no means of preventing him from so doing…that is the effect of the ability-to-pay doctrine. If we examine the income tax carefully we find that it is not a tax on income so much as it is a tax on capital. When the government takes from me is not what I consume but what I might have saved.”

Bend the Law, Shred the Constitution Just a Little Bit! [TRANSCRIPT]

Today’s transcript is an excerpt from director Edward Zwick’s 1998 The Siege film. In this scene, FBI Special Agent in Charge Anthony Hubbard is escorted by Major General William Devereaux into a tiled shower room located within a football field stadium whose playing field has been converted into a concentration camp filled with men of Arabic/Middle-Eastern/Persian ancestry ever since martial law was declared in Brooklyn; upon entering the shower room, Agent Hubbard sees his terrorism suspect, Tariq Husseini, strapped down naked in a folding metal chair being interrogated by CIA agent Sharon Bridger. Any mistakes in transcription are solely that of this humble blogger.

William Devereaux: How long have you been at it?

Sharon Bridger: Not long enough, apparently.

Devereaux: How much longer, do you think, before he gives up the other cells?

Anthony Hubbard: He can’t give up the other cells if he doesn’t know where they are.

Devereaux: He knows.

Hubbard: No, he doesn’t – you said it yourself, Sharon, didn’t you? At the strategy meeting (the briefing), that one cell doesn’t know where the other one is, right?

Devereaux: How long before he breaks, Sharon?

Bridger: Well, at this rate, too long. The theater was hit 9 hours after we took down the first cell.

Devereaux: So, what other models do we have? Shaking? What about it, Sharon?

Bridger: Won’t work.

Devereaux: Works for the Israelis.

Bridger: Only in conjunction with sleep deprivation. It takes at least 36 hours.

Devereaux: We don’t have 36 hours. Electric shock?

Bridger: The neurotransmitters just shut down.

Devereaux: Water?

Colonel Hardwick: Palestinian authorities produce good intel with water. Of course, there’s cutting. It’s extremely messy. Continue reading

Federal Flag Laws (1947 – 1990)

Today’s documentation is an anthology composed of all the relevant federal laws over a 43-year period related to Old Glory. They are sourced & republished here from the Title 4 – United States Flag Code (which is positive law) and two United States Supreme Court decisions (which is case law); for those of you who may be wondering, there is no constitutional clause whatsoever regarding flags of any kind. Some amendments and other assorted legal footnotes have been removed from this republication copy for ease of reading, yet hyperlinks are given for purposes of citation and followup.

Should you desire a modern context regarding the flag laws, be sure to read, “American Hypocrisy: The Constant Violation of Title 4 Flag Code,” and my book report on J.M. Sovereign: Godsent’s Title 4 Flag says You’re Schwag! The Sovereign Citizen’s Handbook,” as well as watch Chaos Erupts at 4th of July Flag Burning in Portland, Oregon,” “Heated Moments at 4th of July Flag Burning,” and4th of July Flag Burning, Portland Cops Clear the Street.”
