“You measure democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.” ~ Abbie Hoffman

Born William Alvin Chengelis, “Wayward Bill”  was Head Chairman of the U.S. Marijuana Party,

until his resignation on May 26th,  after a diagnosis of terminal cancer.

He died Saturday August 8th, 2021 at age 70.

He was born in Maryland in 1951, from Youngstown, Ohio growing up  and lived in Denver, Colorado as an adult.  He was a Student at Youngstown State University. He was very politically motivated all of his life and it shows in the work he accomplished.  He never stopped until he became so ill he could not function anymore and it came on suddenly. 

He was undoubtedly the best Chairman that the U.S. Marijuana Party ever had as he stayed on duty 24/7/365.  Always traveling somewhere or attending functions. 

There has been a MEMORIAL PAGE set up on Facebook where all are welcome to add condolences, stories and pictures.

A Memorial in Denver Colorado is in planning stage right now and will be updated on Facebook as details are made public.

He is to be buried in Ohio at a date to be determined.

Kentucky candidate for local office smokes weed during debate to support legalization

By Marina Pitofsky – 06/16/20 04:04 PM EDT

tim childers

A Frankfort City Commission candidate said that he supports legalizing marijuana before lighting a pipe during a live forum.

Tim Childers, a Frankfort, Ky., native who is one of a dozen candidates running for the Frankfort City Commission, lit the pipe during the forum, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

“Let’s go against the state and legalize something,” Childers said, lighting a marijuana pipe during the event recorded on May 27. “Big money in that. Bunch of states doing it. I have the answers — candidate with solutions, people.”

When Childers lit the pipe, he was advocating for a waiver for new businesses that would allow them to take advantage of a three-year period before turning in “government paperwork so they can incubate and grow.” He said that he owns property and “Kentucky reefer.”

Childers has previously vowed to run for the U.S. Senate in two years, according to the Herald-Leader.

He also told The Frankfort State Journal that he opposes removing the statue of Jefferson Davis from the Capitol Rotunda.

“I think it’s a big mistake,” Childers told the outlet. “You know, all this racial tension, it’s a few bad cops making all the cops look bad. Same thing could be said for Congress. A couple of congressmen look bad; should we fire all of them?”

There has been a renewed effort to remove Confederate statues and memorials across the country following the death of George Floyd. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last month in Minneapolis after a former police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes. Protests have erupted over his death, calling for a slate of police reforms.

Louisville Council passes “Breonna’s Law”–ending “no knock warrants”

Breonna Taylor, 26, was killed during a police raid of her Kentucky apartment. Now, the Louisville Metro Police Department will change its policy to require body cameras and change search warrant sign-offs.

On March 13th, LMPD invaded Breonna Taylor’s home, having “no knock warrants” and proceeded to shoot her eight times according to reports.  There were also no body cameras on the officers to show what actually happened.

On May 21st it was reported that the FBI had opened an investigation on her death at the hands of LMPD.

This occurrence set off a fire storm of protests in Louisville, which in turn Mayor Greg Fischer, on May 30th instituted a curfew and asked for National Guard assistance to try to diffuse the situation.

In a video message, Gov. Andy Beshear said he agreed to call up National Guard troops to help keep peace in Louisville after a night of violent protests and widespread property damage downtown.

The protests continued on a daily basis, regardless of curfew, and forced the City of Louisville to answer to the charges of police abuse by the Citizens of the area – both black and white.

Another man, well known in his community, David McAtee was shot and killed by National Guard on June 1st in an ongoing protest.  The Police were attempting to clear a crowd when a shot was heard causing the retaliatory shot which killed David McAtee.  Again, no body camera footage was available.

On June 2nd, LMPD Police Chief Steve Conrad was fired from his position.

“Given the seriousness of the situation, I have authorized the Kentucky State Police to independently investigate the event,” Beshear said in a statement.

Investigators marked the shell casings after McAtee was shot.

On June 10th the LMPD issued an incident report regarding Breonna Taylor – which told virtually nothing.

TODAY, Louisville Metro Council officially banned “no knock warrants”; “Breonna’s Law”, in response to days of unrest in Louisville.  Many people were outside Metro Hall watching on an outside screen as the law was passed.

5 p.m.: Outside Metro Hall hundreds gathered in a rally to get rid of the non-knock warrants. This rally began minutes after U.S. senator Rand Paul announced that he is filing legislation to ban no-knock warrants nationwide. When that news was announced at the rally a loud cheer rang from the demonstrators.

We must continue to be vigilant and protest peacefully to put an end to police brutality throughout the Country.  Black lives DO matter and EVERYONE’s life matters as well!

The Death of George Floyd: A Timeline

From the moment he said “I can’t breathe” to protests and violence in cities across the US, George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers has reignited the discussion about race and police brutality in America. CNN’s Sara Sidner reports.

Source: CNN

There is a complete (?) listing of persons killed either directly by Police Officers, or as inmates in Institutions on Wiki. 

Recently, in Glasgow Kentucky, we had a white man killed by Officers – which has NOT been addressed yet although there were protests in Glasgow in the past week.  I am still waiting to hear information on that killing….

Fans remember Lennon as an icon, but those working for the FBI may recall the musician’s reputation a bit differently.

Here’s Why The FBI Used To Study All Of John Lennon’s Lyrics

image

For many, the face of John Lennon is directly associated with the peace and love that circulated during the hippie movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Music fans will remember him as one of the most iconic members of The Beatles, founding the group and a songwriting career that has yet to be rivaled. However, those who were working for the FBI under J. Edgar Hoover may recall the musician’s reputation a bit differently.

In March of 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono were on a European mission to be married. After a failed attempt in the U.K and another unfortunate technicality in Parisian nuptial law, the couple finally found a beautiful location at The Pillar of Hercules in Gibraltar.

Just five days after exchanging vows, John and Yoko set out on a honeymoon that would catch the attention of the entire world. Starting off in Amsterdam, the two embarked on a 7-day bed-in for peace, where they invited the press into their honeymoon suite 12 hours a day to witness their protest. According to the newlyweds, they were staying in bed to ‘protest war’ and growing their hair out to ‘preach world peace.’

From Amsterdam, they continued on to Vienna for a press conference where Lennon and Ono both appeared on stage in a white bag as a silent protest, followed by a quick stop in the Bahamas and eventually settling down for another week in Montreal.

‘Give Peace A Chance’

While staying at The Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, John and Yoko invited reporters in again (along with notable visitors like civil rights activist and comedian Dick Gregory and poet Allen Ginsberg). During this stay, they also recorded ‘Give Peace a Chance’ under the Plastic Ono Band project, which featured backup vocals provided by a group that included LSD advocate Timothy Leary and the musical comedian, Tommy Smothers.

The song became more than just a rambling chant of hippies and was eventually regarded as a highly controversial anti-war song in the eyes of the Nixon administration. Particularly, after nearly half a million people sang along to it in D.C., during the Vietnam Moratorium Day in November of 1969.

In the time after ‘Give Peace A Chance,’ John and his new bride dedicated efforts to sending out acorns “for peace” to world leaders and purchasing full-page advertisements and billboards reading, “WAR IS OVER! IF YOU WANT IT.”

By the time John Lennon moved to the United States in 1971, the White House and the Hoover-headed FBI had already deemed him a threat to the conservative agenda. He and Yoko Ono were making waves worldwide, inspiring young people all over to question authority. Upon arrival in New York City on a visa, John started to associate himself with radical anti-war activists, and the FBI then put Lennon under surveillance.

The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service tried to deport him numerous times, especially following Senator Strom Thurmond’s memo to the Nixon White House, in which he warned that John Lennon would use rock music and politics in an effort to organize young people to vote against Nixon in 1972.

It’s important to note that the 1972 election was the first time Americans 18 years of age or older were permitted to vote, prior to that the voting age was 21. And while Nixon resented Lennon’s preaching of left-leaning politics to younger Americans, the FBI became more and more aware of the impact any dramatic deportation may have on young voter turnout and retaliation.

image

Historian Jon Weiner fought for almost 20 years to gain access to FBI files on Lennon and confirmed in an NPR interview that the agenda against Lennon and his naturalization process was an ongoing effort encouraged by President Nixon. Weiner’s book, Gimme Some Truth: The John Lennon FBI Files, is revered as one of the most in-depth analyses of the relationship between John Lennon and the United States government and depicts just how absurd their investigations were.

The FBI started its obsession with Lennon after taking note of his lyrics and remarks on stage during a performance at the John Sinclair Freedom Rally in Michigan in 1969 (an event held to protest the 10-year prison sentence assigned to a poet for 2 marijuana joints).

From that point on, the continued surveillance mounted up a plethora of trivial observations that were classified for fear that their release would pose a “threat to national security.” Though it’s hard to comprehend why the lyrics to his track ‘John Sinclair’ needed to be locked up, considering they appeared on the sleeve of his album.

Numerous other examples of abuse of power appear in some 300 pages uncovered by Jon Weiner, including plans to convict Lennon on narcotic charges in Miami to make him more immediately deportable and a wanted poster that featured a Lennon look-alike.

In 1972, as his immigration battle continued, John Lennon decided to withdraw from the plans to demonstrate against Nixon and the mission to get youths registered to vote. According to Weiner, “in the ensuing three-year legal battle he lost his artistic vision and energy, his relationship with Yoko disintegrated, and he gave up his radical politics. In this period Lennon became a defeated activist, an artist in decline, an aging superstar.” J. Edgar Hoover died in May of 1972, taking some of the heat off the former Beatle, but he did not receive his green card until after Watergate when Gerald Ford took office.

Ultimately, the FBI succeeded in neutralizing Lennon and deterring him from impacting Nixon’s reelection, but not from inspiring millions of people around the world.

Congress Plans to Vote on Federal Cannabis Legalization This Week

The Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act would de-schedule cannabis and create a government agency tasked with righting the wrongs of prohibition.

BRUCE CAIN

2.17.2020

It does take Cannabis off the Controlled Substances Act which is a good thing.

What we never seem to hear from our representatives or within this MORE Bill is an explicit acknowledgement of the inalienable right for adults to grow: no tax, regulation or gov’t/globalist control. And nowhere in this bill does it do that.

I’m an old Perennial Hippie who has been fighting for the right to grow for many decades. And over those decades I have had the honor of knowing many great activists: Jack Herer, Timothy Leary, Gatewood Galbraith, Dennis Peron and hundreds of others.

Well before the establishment of the UN the Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’s have been diametrically opposed to Cannabis. The UN, which is really a front for these two dynasties, is still against an individual’s right to grow.

To me it symbolizes the chasm between the two major ideologies: individualism Vs collectivism. It also symbolizes the chasm between self sufficiency Vs dependency. What is really at the heart of these dynasties is power: the aspiration to control everything and everybody.

This idea of self sufficiency is the idealized goal of our founders and is the real primary reason that I spent over 30 years of my life advocating the inalienable right to grow your own. Today the biggest threat to individual self sufficiency is the UN and their fait accompli to usher us into the 4th Industrial Revolution through 5G infrastructure: Smart Cities, Smart Grids, Smart Meters etc.

Cannabis growers need to understand that — once this infrastructure is in place — they can easily take away your right to grow and make you entirely dependent on spending $15/gram at the dispensary. Smart Meters will detect your indoor grows. Drones, coupled with infrared scanners and AI, can ferret out your outdoor garden.

Cannabis legalization was always a symptom of a much larger evil: global collectivists such as the Rockefeller’s, the Rothschild’s and the globalist United Nations façade which they created. Sadly the war on Cannabis is not over: it has really just begun. They want to control Cannabis just as they want to control You and I. They are responsible for the Federal Reserve (that has been robbing us blind since 1913), they are responsible for nearly every war since 1900 and they look at us as either “useful idiots” (AOC, proponents of the New Green Deal: Agenda21 by another name) and “useless eaters.” And the funny thing about all of this is that we are not taught this through the public education system. The fact is they control that as well. Perhaps THIS is the time to stand up against these demonic forces? Because once the 5G infrastructure is “up and running” we may well remain slaves forever. And as slaves you will eventually not be able to grow your own. They have never changed their view on that one.

This Is The Way It Works…

11/19/2019  By:  Cris Ericson

cris ericson 10.3.18

Let’s say for example, you win the lottery and spend a lot of money making television ads to promote your campaign as a candidate for the November 3, 2020 Election for U.S. Congress, and you don’t say much, just the usual “Hope” and “Change” and words that people fall for, and because you are dressed nicely and speak softly with a very slight sex appeal, you get elected.

Maybe you hire a professional voice dub-over, a person to speak in the commercials, and people think its your voice, but its not (did you notice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the sexiest softest voice in the world in her radio commercials, and then she won the election and in real life she sounds like a hag with a sore throat?).

Well, O.K., so let’s imagine you win. Now what?

You go to Washington, D.C. and you are going to make marijuana LAWFUL and you are going to repeal every single stinking no good for nothing marijuana law. You are going to propose an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, like ending alcoholic beverage prohibition, back when alcoholic beverages were actually illegal in the United States.

But then something terrible happens!

Speaker of the House, Nanny Pelosi, informs you that SHE is the Speaker of the House and SHE will assign YOU to whichever Committee SHE wants to assign you to.

Huh?

Where is the freedom of association guaranteed by the US Constitution? Why can’t you join any committee you want to join – like agriculture! Yeah, that’s the ticket – the Agriculture Committee! Make all plants legal!

Oh, but no, no, no, no, no, no! Speaker of the House, Nanny Pelosi will screech and scream at YOU if you DARE expect to join any committee you want to!

Then, guess what?

You might think you can go visit any committee hearing room you want to, but this is not so!  You would be kicked out on your ass!  The uppity close friends of Nanny Pelosi like to have THEIR hearing rooms in secret!

Why?

Why don’t you get any freedom of speech and freedom of association so you can do what you need to do to make marijuana LAWFUL?

Ah ha!

FOR EXAMPLE, if you are on a medical type committee, then the in-crowd in that committee room writes up a Bill to give the N.I.H., National Institute of Health, billions of tax dollars which the N.I.H. gives to researchers who patent their inventions of pharmaceutical drugs, and then they start their own new pharmaceutical corporations and then they give the members of the Congressional Committee “kick-backs” of political campaign contributions and their Lobbyists wine and dine them and give them very special favors.

Huh?

Isn’t that some kind of combination of bribery and money laundering and witch craft? Yeah, but no one complains because the committee hearings are in secret, and you can’t get in because Speaker of the House Nanny Pelosi has the lock and key to every room.

And so it goes, the U.S. Congress is the number one crime gang in the entire world. Guns, pharmaceutical drugs, weapons, bombs for sale to our “allies”! 

Yep, everything is all for sale with a nice kick-back to the very specially selected members of US Congress, who Nanny Pelosi picks to be in certain committee rooms, and then she gets HER kick-back, you better believe it! And YOU get assigned, by Nanny Pelosi, to the toilet paper committee!

So, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THIS? HOW DO WE CHANGE THE BULLSHIT GOING ON IN WASHINGTON, D.C. SO WE CAN MAKE MARIJUANA TRULY LAWFUL?  AND, restore our God-given Human Rights as well?

We must promote the alarming and shocking new idea that members of the US Congress should have equal rights.  The same as each other.  If they don’t have equal rights the same as each other, then the people in the States that they represent do NOT have equal representation! We must DEMAND that all of our elected US Senators and US Congressmen and US Congresswomen and US Congress, LGBT and US Congress-sexless people have EQUAL RIGHTS TO FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION TO JOIN ANY COMMITTEE THEY WANT TO JOIN, AND TO ENTER ANY HEARING ROOM THEY WANT TO ENTER, AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH TO HAVE AN EQUAL TURN TO TALK ABOUT A SUBJECT.

THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE.
