Ammon Bundy for Governor – Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

We think Ammon Bundy is one of the most exciting gubernatorial candidates we’ve seen in a long time. We were lucky to interview Ammon at his home outside Boise to see what he was all about.

TPP: What is the number one reason every Idaho voter should vote Bundy?

Ammon: Because I’m not afraid. I’m willing to defend their families, property, their right to worship, travel, and trade with each other. I’ve proven I’m willing to do that.

TPP: What’s the biggest threat facing Idaho internally right now?

Ammon: Idaho going down the path of Oregon or California, with our increased welfare programs and size of government. Little’s claiming a surplus, but he received over $18 billion from the Federal Government, increased the size of government and made it look like a surplus.

That money’s going to run out, and then the people are expected to support these programs. That’s a huge threat. Idaho hasn’t paid its own bills for 38 years. We’ve had to go back to the federal government to get money so that we can pay our bills and it’s going to be worse after the COVID money runs out.

TPP: How would you keep money in the average Idahoan’s pocket?

Ammon: Almost 40% of Idaho’s budget goes to welfare programs and by minimizing those welfare programs the state can pay its own bills and won’t need to increase taxes.

We’re attracting those who are coming for our welfare programs. Idaho has increased its food stamps program by 24.2%, more than any other state in the United States. Governor Little’s pumping millions of dollars into free government housing, $50 million.

“I’m not afraid. I’m willing to defend their families, property, their right to worship, travel, and trade with each other. I’ve proven I’m willing to do that.”

If we want to preserve our conservative values, then we have to stop attracting the people who want to come here and live off the state. Also, we need to take back our lands from the federal government. 61% of our land is federally controlled.

If you look at a map of all the minerals that are in Idaho, it’s tremendous. We have trillions of dollars-worth of minerals here in Idaho. We’re resource rich. Natural gas, timber, water, and the federal government is not allowing the people of Idaho to benefit from it.

The amount that it takes to take care of the land and the resources in the forests are so minimal compared to the value in them. That’s partly why we’re having our affordable housing crisis. We’re buying lumber out of Canada and paying four times the price.

We can’t harvest our own minerals. We’re buying all this stuff out of the country or out of the state. And more importantly, the people of Idaho can’t benefit from it. For example, the cobalt deposits in Idaho are the richest cobalt deposits in the United States, and the federal government leases them to an Australian mining company.

The Australian mining company makes billions of dollars. The Federal Government makes billions of dollars and the people hardly get anything.

On top of that, our forests, rather than using them, they’re burning up– killing our wildlife. It’s detrimental to hunting, hiking, and fishing. I propose we go back to the multiple use doctrines that we used to have. People were hunting, hiking, fishing, camping, enjoying it right alongside the loggers, ranchers, and miners on that same area.

TPP: You say you want to eliminate property tax. Where will Idaho get the money to maintain roads, schools and other government services we already take for granted?

“We’re resource rich. Natural gas, timber, water, and the federal government is not allowing the people of Idaho to benefit from it…We’re buying lumber out of Canada and paying four times the price.”

Ammon: Through a consumption tax. It more than compensates for the legitimate expenditures of government. I go into a lot of detail about it on votebundy.com.

TPP: On day one, you would end abortion by executive order. Are there any exceptions in the case of rape or incest?

Ammon: No. I have seen too many abortion videos, too many ultrasounds. There’s some really horrific things that go on when it comes to abortion. I don’t believe that taking the most innocent life for any reason is correct.

And there’s so many testimonies of those that have been raped or otherwise that chose to have the baby. They might have given the baby away or raised that baby and they were healed through that process. Those that actually aborted the baby were further violated and emotionally harmed.

TPP: From trans swimmers to drag queen story hour to pornography freely available to children wherever they go, we seem to be in the world of confusion and chaos. Where do you think the impetus for this message comes from? Why do you think they are targeting our children?

Ammon: I do believe in good and evil. I believe God created this world and that he is the author of good. And I believe there is an adversary. People call him by many different names. I believe that there is a force and a war that is taking place.

Ammon Bundy for Governor
Will you ever re-register as a Republican? “I see things happening in the Republican Party that I like, something I couldn’t say even a few months ago. The Republican platform, I believe, is by far the best platform of all the parties in Idaho, so I would not rule it out.

It’s always been that way between good and bad. I believe that many of these people pushing these things to further these agendas are ultimately motivated by the adversary.

I don’t believe that there is anything good about trying to introduce a seven-year-old to sexuality and men dressed up as women going in his classroom and trying to somehow make him feel like it’s normal.

That’s a wicked agenda. Everywhere teaching and reading the Bible has become illegal is where this new theology is found.

We need to drive that garbage out of the schools immediately. Every day we’re losing more and more to this wicked, incorrect theology that God made a mistake and somehow you’re not important enough or good enough and you have to make yourself something you’re not.

We have to clean our schools up, but we also must strengthen our families. Mothers and fathers are going to work 40, 50, 60 hours a week and the children are left at home. And then they come home, they’re worn out. They go to bed or they watch their show and they go to bed. They get up before the kids and they do it again. And there’s very little influence on the children as to what’s right and wrong.

I think that goes right back to we should be able to benefit from the wealth and resources in Idaho. One breadwinner should provide for a family well enough. If you deteriorate the family unit, you have nothing in society. Everything becomes devalued.

TPP: What do you think is the biggest failure of Little’s term?

Ammon: His response to COVID. Christian pastors in Idaho were arrested for having church service outside. Mothers were arrested for taking her children to the park. Business owners were prosecuted for not shutting down. Hundreds of people were arrested for not wearing masks. Thousands of businesses were put out of business because they were categorized as non-essential.

But when you look into why he did it, he says himself word for word, and I’m going to quote him, “The emergency declaration served as an administrative function to recoup FEMA dollars for a variety of needs throughout Idaho.”

He declared a state of emergency in Idaho that had nothing to do with the health and safety of the people. It was to recoup federal dollars for a variety of his pet projects. He said that in a press release in March 2020. He took that money and increased the size of government more than any other governor in the history of Idaho.

TPP: Are you concerned about Idaho’s energy production? Are we in danger of being arbitrarily cut off from power like some other states have? Is there any way to safeguard cheap, reliable and safe energy?

I believe the best way to spark an economy is to foster entrepreneurs, deregulate and give access to the tools, natural resources and the things they need.

Ammon: Hydropower is our number one source of energy and we already have congressmen like Mike Simpson trying to cut off our new dams. Governor Little says nothing about it and is campaigning and being friendly with Mike Simpson. We have every reason to believe he has the same agenda as him.

We have a tremendous amount of other energies we can use. We’ve got a lot of good hot water coming out of the ground that can create pretty much free geothermal energy. We have hot springs everywhere and it wouldn’t even affect us using and enjoying the hot springs. We also have a ton of natural gas in Idaho. The Idaho power bill should be way lower than it is.

TPP: With World War looming on the horizon, what can we do in Idaho to prevent or prepare?

Ammon: We become much, much more independent. Why don’t we have fuel refineries right here in Idaho? Why don’t we harvest our natural gases and use them?

Why don’t we harvest our own timber? If the world comes crashing down or it has a big economic crash we’re not affected so much because we’re able to produce a lot of our own goods.

TPP: The courts in Idaho often appear to be operating outside the scope of their judicial authority. What can be done at the executive level to ensure that our checks and balances and remedies are available to the people?

Ammon: The governor has the power to pardon. If he’s pardoning people that were prosecuted and found guilty of, for example, going to a meeting during COVID without a mask, then I’m going to pardon those people. It sends a message to the courts and to the prosecutors that if they try to prosecute these type of cases, the governor is just going to pardon them.

TPP: What would you do to flush out the corruption that’s rampant in Idaho and move towards restoring constitutional order?

Ammon: The executive branch is where many of the abuses are coming from. That is a direct responsibility of the governor. Changing the heads of these agencies in these bureaucracies, cleaning them out, minimizing the size and the spending, even eliminating some of them is something that I intend to do and a good governor would do.

TPP: Will you ever re-register as a Republican?

Ammon: Possibly. I see things happening in the Republican Party that I like, something I couldn’t say even a few months ago. The Republican platform, I believe, is by far the best platform of all the parties in Idaho, so I would not rule it out.

TPP: Is there anything we haven’t asked about, but you feel you need to address?

Ammon: I believe that the best way to spark an economy is to foster entrepreneurs, deregulate and give access to the tools, natural resources and the things they need.

These governors, they get away with saying, “Hey, we’re bringing a big corporation. That’s what we’re going to do for jobs in the economy.” That’s a terrible economic development plan. Terrible. All it does is bring a big corporation they give tax rebates to and they create middle to low level jobs. It does very little for the people of Idaho.

It just enriches the corporations. The way to truly spark an economy is to foster entrepreneurship, deregulate, and then make sure they have access to the natural resources so that they can start to really invent and do things. I mean, like in this area you see up on the hills, that’s silica sand.

We have some of the best silica sand in the world. Someone might want to start a glass business, making glass. But the federal government claims that and won’t let us harvest it. Well, let’s use it. How many jobs, how much opportunity and how much wealth is lost simply because we can’t use our resources? How many would benefit from that? The cost of housing goes down, jobs are provided, wealth is in a community, a small community. A community like this starts to flourish. That’s how you build an economy.

After our interview, Bundy dashed off to address a meet-up in Boise, another of the over 200 stops he’s made this campaign.

…perhaps it’s just another example of the establishment media lashing their flaccid tentacles at us, our advertisers and ultimately the general public who is increasingly tired of their migraine-inducing rhetoric and bias disguised with corporate funded, think-tank contrived “inclusive” platitudes.

I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.” — Harry Truman

“Are you ok?” concerned friends and readers ask us at coffee shops, various events, via letters and emails. “Are you being investigated by the AG? Are you OWNED by the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee?”

1. We, like others in this state, are not “ok.” Maybe in an overall universal God-loving way that everything is really alright, sure we are “ok.” But let’s face it, we have a lot of work to do to pry control of this state out of the hands of fat cats, liars and thieves.

2. The “Idaho Capital Sun,” (which many people think is a newspaper, but is actually just a website barely over a year old), reported the Attorney General was investigating whether the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee “owned” The People’s Pen. The writer of that article never once attempted to contact The People’s Pen for comment. We suppose the writer never opened a copy of The People’s Pen either, as more than 20 other advertisers have clearly been buying ads since this publication’s inception. Were any of them called for comment or insight? Could any of them “own” the paper? Perhaps we are really a sordid right-wing conspiracy of chiropractors, real-estate agents, tree-cutters, a spaghetti chef and tattoo artists? Pure poppycock!

But, it gets worse. The Spokesman-Review, an actual printed newspaper, decided to reprint the article! I guess they were short on fact checkers at their Coeur d’Alene office that day. Or, perhaps it’s just another example of the establishment media lashing their flaccid tentacles at us, our advertisers and ultimately the general public who is increasingly tired of their migraine-inducing rhetoric and bias disguised with corporate funded, think-tank contrived “inclusive” platitudes.

This, “Idaho Capital Sun,” which obviously fails to live up to the standards of a printed publication, is actually part of a foundation-funded 501(c)3 nationwide network of new websites which sound like old newspapers under the umbrella of “States Newsroom.” Ever pick up a copy of “The Daily Montana,” “Oregon Capital Chronicle” or the “Nevada Current?” No, you haven’t. But don’t they sound as old as the hills? The closest you can get is picking up your wifi-enabled tablet to read them. This heavily funded network claims it doesn’t accept corporate donations and underwriting. I guess if you squint a little, turn on night mode and tilt your tablet a few degrees… Google News Initiative Journalism Emergency Relief Fund, Morgan Stanley Gift Fund, National Public Radio, Fidelity Donor Advised Fund and some of their other donors don’t look underwritten or corporate at all. While they get money shoveled at them by the likes of Google, the staff of The People’s Pen is having arguments over who gets the flavor packet with the Top Ramen! Sheesh. Give us a freaking break.

There are only two ways of telling the complete truth – anonymously and posthumously.” —Thomas Sowell

The owners and staff of this publication are, like someof our founding American fathers, somewhat elusive when it is practical. We are known by the surrounding community. We stay in the background first and foremost so we do not distract from the subject of our articles. Isn’t it interesting how adversaries are more concerned with who makes TPP, rather than discussing what it says? Also, it allows us to lead more normal lives. It’s kind of a pain when friends and associates feel they have to say, “Now… this is off the record, right?” Many of our articles are contributions of multiple writers and researchers that eventually become a master article that better sums up the complicated web of treachery we face daily. If you’ve ever looked into just one of the many conspiracies we are victims of, you could spend days, weeks, months or even decades researching the facts. So, sometimes we need a team to weed through all the mess and finally boil the topic down to something readable and digestible. Ultimately, The People’s Pen is you the reader, our advertisers, our staff and owners. We are freedom-loving folk, pure and simple. If you want, you will surely meet all the above in person and shake our hands if you are so inclined.

It takes two to speak the truth — one to speak and another to hear.” — Henry David Thoreau

Perhaps more important than “who” makes The People’s Pen is, “what” is The People’s Pen? We aren’t a daily newspaper – we struggle to be quarterly. After 5 issues of our first experimental volume we still struggle to define this publication or why it has been so resonant. But an old proverb often attributed to Mark Twain and others we think gives an important clue: “A lie will go halfway ‘round the world while the truth is pulling its boots on.” Essentially, The People’s Pen is like the truth, finally getting its boots on and wading into the mess a swamp of lies has made. It’s not going to be pretty, it might not be fun, it could be dangerous and it’s near impossible to do it without mistakes. But it’s getting done. When things go right just one truth can counteract months and years of lies. Do we get it right all the time? If we are human, probably not. But we try our best every issue to inform and inspire readers to help themselves, their families, neighbors and all our relations.

Over the last two years we saw tyranny unfold before our very eyes when our weak and tyrannical Governor and his establishment minions marched lockstep with Globalists to mask and experiment on our children, kill our small businesses and dissolve our national sovereignty…

I didn’t know how fortunate I was to have grown up in North Idaho until I joined the Army in the nineties. As I traveled across the US and the world I was quick to recognize that we live in an extraordinarily unique place. We have one of the most abundant aquifers in America under our feet, four seasons and precious lakes. We are surrounded by mountains where huckleberries, morels and wild medicines grow abundant and where herds of deer, elk and other game roam freely. The nearby hills are rich with precious metals and timber. We call this God’s country for all of these reasons and so many more. Truly an area worth protecting, but what exactly do we need to protect it from?

The Idaho political Establishment has abdicated their primary duties as agents of the people. To secure the blessings of liberty we grant specific and limited powers to these agents. Powers that must only be wielded in accord with Natural Law and the Constitution – a framework for the protection and security of our unalienable, God given, rights. Unalienable does not mean conditional, revocable or temporary. On the contrary, it unequivocally translates to immutable, irrevocable and permanent.

Over the last two years we saw tyranny unfold before our very eyes when our weak and tyrannical Governor and his establishment minions marched lockstep with Globalists to mask and experiment on our children, kill our small businesses and dissolve our national sovereignty; globalists like Klaus Schwab who want you “to own nothing and be happy” and Yuvall Harari who preaches from his transhumanist pulpit that “free will is over”. Our weak county and city officials were quick to lie down and roll over in the wake of such blatant disregard for the rule of law, American values and the people of Idaho. This is not a drill.

If you are feeling ambivalent about the up and coming primary elections you should know the real gravity of what’s at stake. Time is of the essence, the enemy is already beyond the gates and largely in power. These pirates masquerading as authorities want to indoctrinate your children with Critical Race Theory, force experimental gene therapy on the population and wield their assigned powers without redress. They use their billionaire backed establishment media, like the CDA Press, to monopolize perception, propagandize the masses and stifle dissent. They invert reality by presenting themselves as conservatives at face value while moving liberal ideologies throughout our community.

Do not be fooled by the desperate establishment and their new fake republican movement whose ranks read more like an episode of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous than an assembly of your everyday conservative Idahoans. These people represent power, greed and globalist conformity. They are vested in the status quo and profiting handsomely from it. These are the same people that told you if you were essential, locked you down, wanted to jab you and your children with experimental gene therapy, made your loved ones die alone, advocated for degenerate materials to be placed in children’s sections of the libraries, closed the courts, restricted access to public services and they have the audacity to call you extremists for reminding them that they’ve overstepped their bounds.

So what is exactly at stake here? Lockstep and conformity to a Globalist agenda vs. the restoration of American values in God’s Country. A conformist will do what they’re told regardless of what’s right. A moralist, however, will do what’s right regardless of what they’re told. Voting for the right people in this election is literally a vote for conformity or a vote for morality. Where do you stand?

So when I say, “Idaho, fight for what’s real,” I really mean it. The “real estate” around you, its water, minerals, gems and fertility is what we need to de-link ourselves from dependence on a global economy that oftentimes violates our moral values.

Volume 1 Issue 4

I stood in the Target parking lot sipping a coffee as I waited for my daughter and her friend to finish shopping. As the indeterminable wait dragged on, I noticed the surge of people entering the store, post-Covid. I looked around at all the box stores surrounding us. I reckoned very few of the dollars we spent would ever see our town again, or even our state, or country for that matter.

When I give a dollar to my neighbor’s business endeavors he can perfect his craft—a craft that will presumably better address the town’s needs. He doesn’t need Google Analytics to figure out what I need; he just asks me. He might have to pay some employees, maybe some of my other neighbors or their kids. As that money transfers through the community it can positively affect people’s lives. When my neighbors and I are happy, well, that means good times: picnics on the weekends and everyone doesn’t have to work so darn long for so darn little.

I remember a life like that, but now it seems far gone. As my daughter spent the money I gave her, it got sucked into a vortex never to be seen again. The stuff she bought was made in another country, probably by slaves. The raw materials to produce the goods might have been sourced from a war-torn portion of Africa. Ultimately, the extended global logistics that got the product from point A to Z mostly benefited middlemen making money off transactions and wasted resources every step of the way. It encouraged corruption, because I don’t really know how or where the stuff is sourced from. For all I know, these foreign factories, to maximize a profit, are utilizing kids as slave labor to make the products my family is buying—while I preach to them that Jesus said he would free us all from slavery.

So when I say, “Idaho, fight for what’s real,” I really mean it. The “real estate” around you, its water, minerals, gems and fertility is what we need to de-link ourselves from dependence on a global economy that oftentimes violates our moral values. How many wars have been started by bearing false witness, taking lives, and stealing what was coveted? How many fake tough-guys have benefitted from bullying rather than defending? Instead of rationalizing how we can pillage afar, how about we use the beautiful minds God gave us to utilize and create with what we have? Maybe then we can have a really “fair trade” for that coffee I’m sipping.

They’re stealing our tax dollars to transform what once was into what they will it to be—an authoritarian surveillance state in a wasteland of traffic, high-rise, high-density housing, homelessness and restricted access to our natural resources.

We The People are the final check and balance of power in these United States of America. The People’s Pen sets out to reclaim and wield that power, not as a weapon of civil war, but as a weapon of civil discourse. It is only our voices, united around those self-evident truths so long ago codified for posterity, that will ring the bells of liberty held hostage by a corrupt legacy media and their fear-based trauma, propaganda and outright mind control.

The billionaire-backed, establishment media in this region has been parroting the same fear-based narratives of division and monopolizing our perceptions for far too long. Our communities thrive through transparency and accountability, through logic, reason, discourse and debate—not from libelous mudslinging or knee jerk slander where there is disagreement and definitely not through censorship, propaganda, disinformation and business as usual.

The status quo is not carrying us into a more united future of prosperity or securing the blessings of liberty guaranteed by our Constitution. In fact, our local political and media establishment continues to sell out to the Federal Government, big tech, the pharma-mafia and corrupt corporate interests while echoing and regurgitating mainstream division and hatred for anyone who dares to question their bought and paid for narrative or challenges their cronyism. They claim to promote “unity & love” while smearing, censoring, alienating and dividing anyone who disagrees with or exposes their obvious biases and conflicts of interest. They use a constant barrage of gaslighting to obfuscate and deflect their dereliction and abdication of duties while pointing fingers of blame like immature children at the area’s newcomers.

To some degree they may be right about the influence of outsiders causing problems… but not the ones they are pointing at. It’s the federally funded ones—the ideas and programs with monetary strings attached to a federal government rife with corruption. It’s the conflicts of interest between our elected officials and the real estate and construction markets. It’s the backroom deals with big business, the pharma-mafia and corporate interests. They’re stealing our tax dollars to transform what once was into what they will it to be—an authoritarian surveillance state in a wasteland of traffic, high-rise, high-density housing, homelessness and restricted access to our natural resources. Meanwhile the establishment grows more powerful, the poor grow poorer and the hard working middle class evaporates before our very eyes.

It is long past time to turn off your TV. Throw out the left-right divided, legacy media. Deprogram from the fear-based brainwashing that has made you afraid to have public dialogue and discourse for fear of reprisal from, as John F. Kennedy described it, “a monolithic and ruthless” monstrosity. Time to oust these invaders of peace and liberty from your most sacred property—your mind. Join the growing masses of critical thinkers and problem solvers who are aware that what we are actually witnessing is a globalist attempt to takeover our national sovereignty and steal our God-given natural rights. Arm yourselves with awareness, choose your influences wisely and remember that “truth is the new hate speech” and “the first casualty of war.”

Give a hand to your neighbor fighting the good fight with something more valuable than money, your time and love.

No. No. No. No. How does that sound? Negative, obviously, and unrealistic. Life is a positive experience despite its darkness at times, with constant changes around us. We can put our hands up to the ocean, but we won’t stop its waves.

When I think of myself as a “conservative,” as I sometimes do, I find myself saying “no” to many things. I reflexively say “no” to whatever the mainstream media touts. I say “no” to the garbage being taught to my child at school. I say “no” to the government’s onerous plans. I could quickly list a hundred reasons to say “no” right now, and most of you reading this would be cheering and agreeing with me.

But after I say “no,” what do I offer as an alternative? What am I doing to solve problems, whether it is mine or my neighbors? I have come to believe this is a handicap most of us share: we don’t have a plan.

There are think-tanks, conventions, corporate weekends, appointed boards and all sorts of functions where people gather to make plans that effect you and me. Increasingly we find that we are the losers in their plans. At best we appear in their plans as a human resource, at worst a pesky nuisance to be dispatched. But we are neither. We are children of God and caretakers of His Earth.

This fact makes “no” problematic. God has imbued us with creativity and capability, but all too often we lazily sit around and just say “no” to the Adversary’s plans. What happens? It just comes up with another plan, and another, and another each worse than the last until we get tired and give up.

The Adversary pulls the understandably dissatisfied into its plans. It gives visions of future riches to “stakeholders” if they only follow its plans. Once emboldened, the Adversary threatens and even kills to achieve its plans. But we only say “no” and think that is sufficient as we continue to incrementally lose more of what is precious.

Perhaps it is time for us to make a plan, or two, or even three. Let’s take a break from reacting to the Adversary’s plans and prods to action, sit down and write down our own plans. We always react to the Adversary’s plans, and it gets to catalog our behavior to perfect its plans upon plans upon plans. Nothing would mess up its plans more, than if we independently take the time to make and follow our own plans, and our neighbors’ plans, and our friends plans. It’s time to stop reacting and start acting on our own plans. The Adversary can have its think-tanks, conferences, and seminars, but even its super-computers would strain at calculating all our independent plans.

Initially, our plans might not be so fabulous, but as time goes on and we inch our way out of the mental constrictions of the Adversary’s world of illusion, our creativity and our plans will get better and more fruitful so long as we strive for the greater good.

Albert Einstein is often credited for saying, “in the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity.” Well, it’s our opportunity too. Take the initiative to solve the problems of the understandably dissatisfied so the Adversary cannot twist their suffering and good intentions into bad. Give a hand to your neighbor fighting the good fight with something more valuable than money, your time and love. The first step to stopping the insane machinations of the Adversary filling us with fear may just be a few steps away: your kitchen table where you, your friends and family can sit down with some paper and write up your plans.

…there is an urgent need for access to, and a forum for, dissenting and divergent views from the mainstream, propaganda spewing, legacy media hellbent on polarizing our Nation.

Have you noticed anything wrong in the world today? Does it seem like our society is moving towards a bright, thriving and prosperous future? Is civil discourse dead? Are we doomed to accept the social, economic and political changes being forced upon us by biased and monopolized interests?

Jiddu Krishnamurti wisely quipped that “it is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” It certainly does appear, to those willing to check their egos, open their minds and peer behind the curtains, that our society is indeed sick. But like any sickness, a proper diagnosis is the first step towards treating the dis-ease. Unfortunately, this requires access to unbiased, objective and accurate information free from censorship and undue influence. We have heard for centuries that “truth is the first casualty of battle.” Can we all agree that we are in a battle, an information war, and that those currently in control of the information also control perceived reality? Like Pavlov’s dog our society has been conditioned by these modern day magicians wielding the power of suggestion like hypnotic sleight of hand (distracting, deceiving and dividing us); while blind and obedient masses accept by their silent, sleeping consent the normalization of tyrannical ideologies intentionally detrimental to the sovereignty of our Nation, our families and our lives.

As a matter of fact, we have been so busy arguing and fighting over their propaganda around viruses, vaccines, masks, race, police brutality, election rigging, lockdowns and corruption, that we have forgotten what principles we were actually arguing about in the first place. Informed consent, due process, freedom of speech, full disclosure and the acknowledgment that all human beings innately possess dignity, equality, and God-given rights are some self evident considerations.

The People’s Pen was born from the recognition that there is an urgent need for access to, and a forum for, dissenting and divergent views from the mainstream, propaganda spewing, legacy media hellbent on polarizing our Nation. Cui bono? The only real beneficiaries of this division are those elite and parasitic pirates masquerading as authorities and philanthropists, that have for generations been the selfsame creators and curators of our past, present and future economic, social and political woes.

We set out to be a vehicle of inspiration rather than influence, a source of uncensored information (making no claim of full and total veracity to the content herein, instead encouraging you to research for yourself and to exercise your powers of discernment) and a forum to exchange ideas civilly. We strive to encourage our readers to spend less time behind the keyboard, to make social media social again and introduce you to solutions that are ready for your engagement. From simple suggestions like subscribing to our publication and joining the KC Spectator mailing list for staying abreast of public meetings (see page 15), to building stronger networks of economic resilience with the North Idaho Freedom Fighters et al. and participating in civil discourse at the many up and coming townhall style events, we can make serious headway towards ending this information war.

In order to realize the future of liberty, freedom and abundant prosperity that is our true inheritance we first have to visualize what it looks like and how to get there. I suggest we start by reclaiming the narrative from magicians masquerading as media, restoring the law from pirates masquerading as authorities and reinvigorating genuine civil discourse around divisive topics. Never forget the power is inherent in the people! Elected officials are not our leaders but our agents and our mouthpieces. Before we are baited into another argument or fight let’s dialogue until we can discern the true nature of our disagreements. More often than not, as we distill our arguments into their base principles, we should find that we don’t really disagree in the first place. If we do, then an honest and open debate ought to be had. We can facilitate this dialogue before debate-style discourse and show the rest of our country that a small group of “thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” – M. Mead

The People’s Pen, as a platform for your voice, aspires to grow through your letters, feedback and input. We welcome challenging discourse and seek to be greater and more relevant with every new issue as we forge new pathways through this gateway to a better media.
