Paul Hellyer’s The Money Mafia – a World in Crisis— copyright 2014
A comment by Connie Fogal, October 2014
Hellyer sets the stage for the rationale of his book with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln:
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country…corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
Why should we read and share this book? In my opinion, this is Hellyer’s most important written contribution to humanity. It is his best work at pulling together crucial information of how the world now functions- who is in control, their agenda, and their power. This is an encyclopedic reference for quick access to descriptions of every form of abuse of money power exerted by the “money mafia”. Once again Hellyer eloquently sets out the deception imposed on the masses about the creation and power of money, and the exploitation of the masses by that deception. It is an excellent depiction of the “End Game” of the New World Order; i.e., the substitution of elite rule for democracy.
Many of us already know much of the information he presents in The Money Mafia. His presentation here is comprehensive, readable and understandable. But this book goes much further than ever before. I have been waiting for that reach.
He informs about the extraterrestrial presence and technology, and about the exploitive abuse of it and us by an elite earthly cabal. The information is necessary to help us know the steps we must take for our salvation. We need to know that sophisticated free energy exists here on earth now, that used for the benefit of all, it can restore the earth to its glory, that it is in the control of an evil cabal who withholds the technology from us while they exploit its use for their greed and power grievously harming earth and its inhabitants in the process. It was that information which compelled me to write this comment in hope of impressing on others the necessity of reading and sharing this book.
Hellyer sets out a do-able necessary action plan in chapter 14: actions for the US President, the US Congress, the G20, Ending the Great Recession, Full Disclosure, Tree Planting, 7 year Transformation to Clean Energy, Writing Off Third World Debt, Winding Up the IMF, a Tobin Tax taxing every exchange of one country’s currency for another to stop speculation in currencies- gambling, a Universal World Currency and a World Bank publicly owned by the people of the world with formula preventing undue influence by any country or region, rolling back the World Trade Organization to a General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs, using the Marquess of Queensbury rules for Trade and Investment, massive reduction of Defence Expenditures and Atomic Weapons worldwide, Reorganizing and Streamlining the United Nations, Limiting Executive Salaries.
Hellyer summarizes his three most important directions: return the control and creation of money to the public interest, taking it out of the hands of private banking; stop the exploitation of the earth’s fossil fuel resources in order to halt global warming; provide full disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence and their advanced technology in order to benefit the public and remove its harmful exploitation by the cabal.
My only criticism is that he does not acknowledge the role of the cabal in the devastating geo-engineering of the environment using the advanced technology at their disposal in manipulation of weather and the atmosphere causing hurricanes, storms, earthquakes, tsunamis. He has omitted reference to the deliberate spraying of harmful chemicals into earth’s atmosphere. (Look up! Look up!) He does not discuss what they are spraying or why. He does not reference the fact that weather warfare exists and is being used as a tool to tyrannize countries (and maybe is an attempt to conquer space control and extraterrestrial life.). It is no longer just, “We can bomb countries out of existence.” It is now, “We can destroy them with drought, deluge, wind, or earthquake.” A Japanese politician confirmed the use of such threats before the Fukushima disaster.
In my opinion, Hellyer’s urgent concern re global warming is flawed because he fails to recognize geo-engineering as the culprit. The calamitous environmental destruction is real and rapid! Geo-engineering is the culprit. It must be stopped.
Still, his urgent message on all other respects is on point and compelling.
In my many years of learning about the evil side of globalization, its power structure and agenda, and sharing what I learned, the common question always came back, “But what can we do about it?” Those of us communicating on the issues answered: “Learn! Be informed! Know that power is within each of us.”
A recurring response was, “Well, what does that mean? How do we find our power, and how do we use it to halt the evil overtaking the world?” I struggled with how to answer. Now I think I know. Hellyer’s The Money Mafia gives me confidence that what I think on this is the way. His information therein about visitors from “starry realms”, and full disclosure about them, and their technology, and the disclosure of the usurpation of that technology by the “money mafia” is the key.
Hellyer has connected those dots well. The power and control of this planet is totally out of the hands of responsible government. It is totally in the hands of unaccountable privatized military, and industrial and banking cartels. The source of their incredible power is the extremely advanced technology at their disposal from downed spaceships which they have co-opted, studied, and reverse- engineered for decades funded by taxpayer trillions. This is the biggest secret of all time. They use the technology in military conquest for world domination and power and greed which process is killing the earth and its peoples. Deals have been made with other world beings which our side have breached respecting the disclosure of the technology which could save this planet from the environmental destruction the military industrial banking complex is creating. The technology could be used for housing, transportation, health, energy— providing earth’s creatures with comfort and peace and happiness as exist elsewhere in the cosmos. But it is used for destruction and conquest.
Hellyer expertly presents information on the evidence of reliable sources, from military to aeronautical, to scientists, to human contactees, most of whom have been sworn to silence based on “national security”, or, worse yet, reprisals and death.
But disclosure of the extraterrestrial existence and its relevance to us has been happening incrementally over time. This book is an example of that.
Hellyer pulls no punches on disclosing who the “money mafia” are, their evil, and the fact that no powerful politician any longer serves us, the masses of the world. They cannot under “money mafia” rule! No political leader of any political stripe gets where he/ she is unless he does as he /she is told by the “money mafia”, those who rule. Hellyer calls them the Three Sisters- the Bilderbugers, the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations. They manipulate, coerce, and lie to the public to accomplish their ends.
At page 246 Hellyer points out that there are two governments in the U.S. — the permanent and the provisional. The permanent is the secular oligarchy that comprises the Fortune 500 companies and lobbyists, the civil and military services, the larger research facilities and law firms, public relations firms, the international banks with close ties to the Fed, the World Treasury Department, the IMF, and the World Bank, the Bretton Woods institutions and the State Department, the information conglomerates that blur the lines between the manufacture of news, and culture and its dissemination. “These are all parts of the permanent government that holds the reins of power. It is a power camouflaged by the antics of the politicians comprising the provisional government.”
Hellyer refers to the permanent government as the “cabal”, the shadow government. He reminds us of President Clinton’s comment to a reporter that that there is a government within the government that he does not control. So, the President is not in control. Nor is the Congress in control even though it approves hundreds of billions on Black Ops that it is not even aware of.
The evil of the cabal is incredible. My information from other sources tells me that now the “money mafia” are implementing mind control on which they have been experimenting for years with HAARP and chemtrails (geo-engineering). Also, they are creating and releasing viruses to make and keep people sick and weak. Why does a patent on the Ebola virus exist in the U.S.? A sick, weak, dumbed down public will not resist because it cannot resist or make change.
Fortunes are made in mass vaccinations. There is a plan unfolding re mass compulsory harmful vaccinations in the U.S. re Ebola, HIV, Polio and other combined vaccines, vaccination cards reminiscent of Nazi Germany, and quarantine for refusal to submit. Canadians must not be smug because Canada now follows the U.S. protocol on command. There is no question that the human masses are under attack by the “money mafia”.
Hellyer juxtaposes the “money mafia” power and control with the potential for salvation through disclosure about the technology from space, and more importantly, the fact of the existence of other civilizations out there— how they live and govern. Why? Because the money mafia will lose their power and control if we learn what they know and withhold from us. They fear our reaction to their lies. But therein lies our power.
Here is the crunch. There exists a Galactic Federation. Earth is a tiny part of the cosmos but is a jewel in its capacities as a planet. Earth humans are one kind of Being. The Galactic Federation is concerned that those in control of earth are rapidly destroying it by the military use of the technology they have reverse engineered. Their rapacious use of nuclear technology is a threat not only to earth but to space.
It is said that the Galactic Federation has the power to intervene on earth to assist in transferring the power into the hands of those who will share for the benefit of all, but a policy of non interference in free will and self determination exists. We cannot sit around twiddling our thumbs waiting for a knight in shining armor. We have to show our own mettle. Humans have to decide we will not tolerate the power being held and used as it is. We have to decide we do not want that destruction, and we will not allow it. We must show our intention to live otherwise, and to share the technology for the benefit of everyone, not for a few.
So, back to the fundamental question: how do we do this? Be informed! Say “No More”! The outrage of a fully informed public will terminate the “end game” of the cabal. A fully informed public will end the rule of the military /industrial /financial complex. Iceland has done it. Iceland jailed its fraudulent bankers and said NO to the IMF. Iceland is thriving.
Hellyer has taken a major step in writing this book. First, we must have knowledge. He gives us knowledge. What he and others like him have been telling us seems incredible. We must satisfy ourselves by studying the evidence presented. I am satisfied.
Hellyer tells us at page 172 to fulfill our responsibilities as citizens by going to www.paradigmresearchgroup.org and watch the proceedings until we are convinced of the reality of UFO’s and the ET presence. This is important to do because the next step of the cabal is to fake an attack from space. They can do this because they have perfected the reverse-engineering of spaceships to the extent that they have duplicated them. Hellyer advises us to ignore that whole new show as being one more monstrous deception. In so doing, he says we can finally strike out the New World Order Pretenders.
Next, I say we must follow all the other excellent, fascinating work ongoing exposing the evil in process by the power structure, like mind control which suppresses thought and resistance. Activists say that is part of what chemtrails are about (as well as climate manipulation). Orwell’s thought-police apparatus is being implemented. A conference in Brussels on this Agenda is set for November, 20 2014. http://covertharassmentconference.com/
Further, we must inform ourselves of what really happened on 9/11. At pages 167 and 168 Hellyer sets out the evidence of Dr. Judy Wood that the buildings were not crushed or pulverized, nor were they heated to the point where they vaporized. They mostly were turned to dust in midair, or dustified. This proves that a technology that can cause such a thing to happen does exist. It is a technology that is capable of providing enormous quantities of free energy. We can be free from being slaves to the energy industry. Free energy is already here, but it has been used for evil purposes, not good. The buildings did not come down because they were hit by planes. “They did not collapse from fire nor from bombs in the building,(or conventional controlled demolition),” said an eye witness. ”They were turned to powder in mid-air.”
Dr Judy Wood wrote in Where Did the Towers Go? “There were 14 survivors in Stairway B of WTC1; when the dust cleared they looked up to see blue sky and walked out on their own. If the building had collapsed, they would have been crushed. If fires or high heat had caused the destruction, they would have been cooked to death and people in southern Manhattan would have been blinded by the light from the tremendous heat required to destroy the building.”
Hellyer tells us that the events of 9/11 were “an attack on human consciousness that affected the whole planet. Hundreds of years of hard won victories against the arbitrary rule of tyrants went down the tube in an infamous day that crowned and confirmed the cult of deceit and disinformation that had become endemic since WW2.”
Why follow all this and keep learning? Because the cabal will run when they know we know; when we say, “No! No more!”
Where is the action or activism in that? The action is in the process of your will and determination being set to live a different way – a way of peace and prosperity for all, not a few. This intention that is building around the world is a way to transmit our request for Galactic Assistance in our reach for a better and different world. (My words, not Hellyer’s). Our will to live otherwise on this planet is manifested by our learning and our intention. This is how we access the Galactic aid— by peaceful intent fuelled by our knowledge, and by our refusal to submit to fear and mind control. This is not just thinking thoughts. We are acting when we learn and share and participate in conferences and talk about the truth. To refuse to stand down or submit is action. In other words, we carry on our various forms of activism! I do not deny that there have been and will be circumstances that extract a great personal sacrifice from some. The whistle blower, Snowden, has not had it easy, but his contribution has been phenomenal. How each of us deals with any efforts to force vaccinations on us may be difficult.
We must resist with knowledge and the refusal to accept the lies as we did for H1N1. We need knowledge before we can take any action wisely. Alternative medicine sites tell us that colloidal silver and vitamin C prevent and cure Ebola. The inhumanity of CODEX that limits and criminalizes natural supplements is part of the agenda of the cabal to eliminate many of us “useless eaters” as Brezinsky (I think it was) called the masses. .
Hellyer’s chapter on “The Two Americas” outlines the rapid destruction by the globalists of the good life as it was in the USA. It is a frightening depiction. At one point he wonders whether the German fascist leaders are, in fact, still in control since their best scientists and best thinkers were imported into the US at the end of WW2 to provide ongoing control. My own husband, Harry Rankin, deceased, who fought in WW2 and was wounded there twice said, “We thought we defeated the Fascists, only now to discover that they never went away.”
We face an evil future of subservience and suffering for those of the masses who will be allowed to live as slaves to the elite few, (provided the cabal does not blow up this earth in its abuse of power and technology.) The movie Elysium portrays such a world, one with the elite living off-planet in an abundance with phenomenal technology including machines that cure all diseases all of which is denied to the surviving servile masses who occupy an environmentally ravaged earth.
But it does not have to be. That is Hellyer’s message.
Hellyer’s book has motivated me to lay it out to you as I see it. We can manifest our will to live otherwise by being informed and sharing our knowledge of what is going on, and by saying NO to the cabal. We must protect our minds. We must reject the manipulation that caused one young woman in England immediately after the 9/11 event to say,“I have to give up my liberty to be free”.
We can learn how to communicate telepathically to the Galactic Federation in order to be a part of a peaceful existence of abundance on this earth which is capable of such a bounty. We can demonstrate our intent by accepting no excuses from the vapid politicians, and by refusing to be ruled by fear even though we may feel it deeply.
Despite the evil perpetrated against the earth and human beings, extraterrestrials recommend against retribution. Hellyer refers to a message from extraterrestrials to grant amnesty to the “civilians and members of the armed forces who have broken numerous laws in the course of what they were led to believe was their duty”. This comes from a book by Jim Sparks in an interview with many extraterrestrials entitled The Keepers: an Alien Message for the Human Race .
Hellyer says that the extraterrestrials admitted that serious crimes had been committed, but not by them. “They urged amnesty in the interests of disclosure,” writes Hellyer. But he says, “While a total amnesty may be appropriate for most misdemeanors, it may be considered inappropriate in cases of murder, or complicity in mass murder like 9/11 where lack of some punishment could not be justified.”
Hellyer contends that the year 2014 is the Year of Decision for Humankind. He quotes some key points from the story of Charlie Paz Wells and his brother who had been in direct contact with several species from afar. “…there are more than 80 different civilizations interacting within our solar system, all of which have gone through an evolutionary process. Now there is peace in the universe and they want to keep it that way. Earth and human beings are going through their own evolutionary process and
are unstable. Humans risk destroying themselves and their planet. Humanity is not in balance with the universe, and the universal laws that control it. The extraterrestrials explained that they want to help us realize that we are not alone and that there is a better way of living and evolving that is sustainable. But before they give us the tools and technology to continue our evolution, they need to be assured that whatever they do for us must be used for ALL humanity. Not just for those in power who will use it to further their own agenda.” Hellyer says they were told in 1974 that in 30+ 10 years we would reach our own year of decision, our watershed when we would have to change our ways dramatically or it would be too late to reverse the trend and we would be subject to great calamities.
Hellyer says, “We are writing our own history day by day, and will determine our future by the choices we make and the actions that we take or fail to take.”
From what I read and follow, I know there is much good work on-going. The “money mafia” is running hard to stay ahead of this good work which will defeat them. I think that the whistle blowers and the powerful good intentions are stronger than the “money mafia”, but only because the whistle blowers and exposers, like Hellyer, do exist. And they do. They do “blow” and they do “expose” courageously.
Many of us are paying attention. We are learning and reaching for that better way of living. We are saying no to vaccines, no to geo-engineering, no to chemtrails, no to mind control, no to private creation and control of money.
In comment I have focused on the extraterrestrial information and technology in this book because that is what resonates for me. But there is so much more here on the power structure in the world and its direction which will resonate with everyone. It is knowledge— knowledge essential to handle this watershed.

Canadian Government Seizes on Ottawa Shooting to Promote Militarist, Anti-Democratic Agenda
By Roger Jordan and Keith Jones
24 October 2014
Canada’s Conservative government is seeking to exploit the killing of two Canadian Armed Forces’ soldiers in separate incidents this week to dramatically shift politics further to the right.
Speaking in parliament Thursday—the day after a gunman fatally shot a soldier at Ottawa’s National War Memorial, then entered the main block of the national parliament—Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed to greatly strengthen Canada’s national security apparatus.
“Our law and police powers,” declared Harper, “need to be strengthened in the area of surveillance, detention and arrest.” He continued, “I assure you that work—which is already underway—will be expedited.”
Since Monday’s hit-and-run killing of a Canadian Armed Forces’ warrant officer in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Harper and his government have gone into overdrive to promote the false narrative that Canada is under “terrorist” assault.
The government’s response to Wednesday’s events was extraordinary. It enacted the Canadian state’s National Anti-Terrorism Plan, which involves the coordinated mobilization of all sections of the national-security apparatus, including the military; placed large sections of downtown Ottawa under lockdown for ten hours; and ordered Canadian Armed Forces’ bases across the country to go on high alert.
In conjunction with Washington, the joint US-Canadian North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) increased its “alert posture,” ordering additional fighter jets to be ready to take to the skies at a moment’s notice.
Yesterday, heightened security remained in effect across the country, at Parliament Hill and the provincial legislatures, other public buildings and on public transport. Politicians and representatives of the police, military and intelligence apparatus all made statements warning Canadians to get used to enhanced security measures disrupting day-to-day life .
A somber Harper went out of his way to paint Canada as under siege in a brief, nationally-televised address given Wednesday evening—that is long after it had become apparent, if it was ever in serious doubt, that there had been only a single gunman.
He repeatedly used the words “terrorist” and “terrorist attack,” claimed the two incidents constituted an attack on Canada and democracy, and sought to channel popular revulsion over them behind Canada’s leading role in the new US war in the Middle East.
The reality is that both of this week’s killings were carried out by lone, misguided and disorientated individuals. All reports indicate that they were not members of a “homegrown” anti-government group, let alone of a foreign terrorist organization.
The Ottawa shooter, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, was living in a homeless shelter in the days before his shooting spree. Residents at the Ottawa shelter told reporters he had behaved extremely erratically.
At a press conference yesterday afternoon, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson confirmed that there was no link between Zehaf-Bibeau and Martin Couture-Rouleau, the “radicalized” Muslim convert who carried out Monday’s attack in St-Jean.
If the Harper government, aided and abetted by the corporate media, is framing these tragic incidents as terrorist acts, it is because such a narrative serves predetermined reactionary politically ends.
The immediate goal is to rally support for Canada’s participation in the new Mideast war and to rush through legislation giving further repressive powers to the national-security apparatus.
In doing this, the government and Canada’s ruling elite are following a now well-trodden path. Since the September 11, 2001 events, terrorist attacks and scares have been repeatedly exploited to advance an agenda of military aggression abroad and attacks on democratic rights at home. Right-wing measures that would previously have been impossible to implement due to public hostility have been pushed through in a deliberately-fostered climate of fear, hysteria and nationalist militarism.
Within weeks of 9/11, Canada’s then Liberal government, following the lead of the Bush administration, adopted a draconian anti-terrorism law. Its provisions include a catch-all definition of “terrorism” that could be used to suppress political strikes and vast new powers for the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), the Canadian partner of the US National Security Agency or NSA.
Canada also took on a major role in the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, deploying combat troops to that impoverished country for a decade and embarking on a rearmament drive. By 2011 Ottawa was spending more in real, inflation-adjusted terms on the military than any time since the end of the Second World War.
Harper has been among the most bellicose of western leaders, defending Israel’s war crimes against the people of Gaza and stoking NATO’s confrontation with Russia over Ukraine. Most recently, his government deployed a fleet of fighter planes and almost 700 military personnel to join the new war the US has unleashed on the Middle East, so as to shore up and extend Washington’s domination of the world’s most important oil-exporting region.
Harper and the ruling elite are acutely aware that there is widespread popular opposition to their war agenda—that is, to their plans to secure the Canadian bourgeoisie a “place at the table” in the imperialist reordering of the Middle East and Eurasia. Asked in early September why he hadn’t endorsed the US-British call for all NATO countries to spend at least two percent of GDP on the military, Harper was forced to concede that the Canadian people would not “understand” such a decision.
Harper’s gratuitous reference to the war in the Middle East in his Wednesday night speech makes clear the Conservatives intend to use this week’s events to try to silence and intimidate the war’s millions of opponents and create the political climate to expand Canada’s role. Already last week, the head of the armed forces said the deployment, currently slated for six months, will most likely have to be extended.
As Harper indicated in his remarks to parliament Thursday, the government was already planning to give the country’s national-security agencies significant new powers. Indeed, a draft bill was to have been tabled in the House of Commons on Wednesday.
The government had signaled that this legislation would allow CSEC and Canada’s premier spy agency, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), to work even more closely with the NSA and the other foreign intelligence agencies, including in the tracking of Canadian “terrorist” suspects who go abroad.
The government had also said that it would amend the 2001 Anti-Terrorism Act to give CSIS informants blanket immunity. This would mean not only that the identity of CSIS informants would have to be protected in all legal proceedings, but that they could not be questioned by defence lawyers and even judges.
The government has not announced a new date for the tabling of this legislation. This strongly suggests that it intends to redraft it to include still more anti-democratic measures, calculating that it can now stampede them through.
These changes will add to the broad range of capabilities already at the disposal of the intelligence services. Since 2001, CSIS and CSEC have seen their budgets explode. With the government’s full support they have arrogated new powers, such as the right to systematically spy on the metadata of Canadians’ electronic communications.
No one should be under any illusion that the opposition parties will mount any serious resistance to the government’s plans to use this week’s events to intensify its militarist foreign policy and attack on democratic rights.
The Conservative government has only widened and deepened the right-wing policies of its Liberal predecessor. The trade union-supported New Democratic Party (NDP) has supported Canada’s participation in a series of US-led wars and interventions, including the 1999 war on Yugoslavia, the Afghan war, the 2004 overthrow of Haiti’s elected president and NATO’s 2011 “regime change” war in Libya.
These parties’ opposition to the current Canadian Armed Forces’ combat mission in Iraq is an exercise in cynicism and hypocrisy that has been motivated by electoral calculations, concerns that the current war, like the 2003 Iraq war, will redound against imperialist interests, and fears it will fuel social opposition at home.
Both the Liberals and the NDP have kept an almost total and complicit silence about CSEC’s spying on Canadians and its major role in the NSA’s gargantuan global spy network.
Predictably they have responded to Wednesday’s events, by rallying round the Harper Conservative government, lending credence to its tendentious claims that Canada is under attack.
NDP leader Thomas Muclair said the Ottawa shooting had been “designed to strike at the very heart of our democracy—at the heart of who we are.” In a display of “national unity,” Mulcair embraced Harper following the prime minister’s right-wing address Thursday morning.
This add to the belief that this was a false flag op.and almost proves it totally by the gung ho way cowardly Harper is now using this totally false NON terror story as an act of terror story to further steel our liberty under the lie that were being attacked by terrorist when nothing could be further from the TRUTH
WAKE UP CANADIAN’S
HARPER IS A LIAR
Turning our Police Mean and Against Us
WHEN ANY GROUP IS CLASSIFIED BY GOVERNMENT AND POLICE AS A TERRORIST GROUP IT PUTS EVERY PERSON IN THAT GROUP IN THAT CLASSIFICATION!!! THIS IS WRONG AS 99% OF SOVEREIGN CITIZEN ARE NORMAL GOOD DECENT CITIZEN THAT WOULD NEVER HURT ANYONE UNLESS IN SELF DEFENSE. THEY JUST DON’T BELIEVE IN GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY OVER THEMSELVES OR THERE FAMILIES. MOST SOVEREIGN CITIZEN DON’T ACT ON THERE BELIEF FEARING AN OVER AUTHORITARIAN TYRANNICALLY TRAINED POLICE FORCE WHICH IS BY THE WAY AN OPPRESSION TACTIC USED FOR 100 OF YEAR BY TYRANNICAL KINGS, GOVERNMENTS, AND DICTATORS TO SUPPRESS AND MURDER THESE GROUPS BAD PEOPLE AND GOOD PEOPLE ALIKE THINK ABOUT IT CAUSE YOUR GROUP OR BELIEF COULD BE NEXT ON THERE LIST
‘Police teach tactics for handling ‘sovereign citizens’
The FBI classifies such people, who refuse to recognize government authority in almost any form, as part of a domestic terrorist movement.
Two police officers and two people who considered themselves “sovereign citizens” — a 16-year-old and his father — were killed in West Memphis, Ark., in a 2010 shootout. Two North Carolina officers who train police to deal with sovereign citizens often cite the Arkansas case when explaining the danger. (Alan Spearman, The Commercial Appeal / May 20, 2010)
By David Zucchino, Los Angeles Times
April 5, 2013, 4:14 p.m.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — With his shaggy hair, bushy mustache and obstinate ways, Jeffrey Allen Wright was well-known to sheriff’s deputies in Santa Rosa County, Fla.
Wright, 55, drove around with a phony license plate. When stopped, he refused to produce a driver’s license. Once he threatened to sue a deputy who pulled him over.
After he was fined for traffic offenses in September, Wright paid with counterfeit money orders. When deputies served warrants for felony counterfeiting March 8, Wright barricaded himself in his garage and declared that he would not be “a servant of the king.”
He broke out windows with a handgun, then pointed the weapon at officers, police said. Three deputies fired, killing Wright.
When Det. Rob Finch of the Greensboro police department heard about the incident, two words came to mind: sovereign citizen.
Finch teaches police and public officials around the country how to deal with self-described “sovereign citizens” like Wright. Finch and his partner, Det. Kory Flowers, have trained nearly 15,000 police and 5,000 public officials to combat sovereigns, zealots who refuse to recognize government authority in almost any form.
Violent confrontations are rare, but the FBI says at least six police officers have been killed by sovereigns since 2000. A man tied to the movement shot and killed a California Highway Patrol officer who stopped him in Contra Costa County last year. A responding officer shot and killed the assailant.
The agency calls sovereigns — who number between 100,000 and 300,000 — a “domestic terrorist movement.”
This time of year has federal authorities on alert, since a central tenet of the sovereigns movement is that its adherents believe they owe no income taxes.
Sovereigns assert that the U.S. Treasury has set up a secret money account for every American, which can be reclaimed through a bizarre set of legal filings known as redemption. They say everything from taxes to traffic tickets can be disposed of by drawing on the secret Treasury accounts through elaborate legal claims and mountains of paperwork.
Many sovereigns file invoices with police or judges, demanding hundreds of dollars an hour for time spent stopped by officers or when in court to answer charges.
Finch, 31, said his training sessions began after several sovereigns pulled over by Greensboro police in 2008 and 2009 refused to produce driver’s licenses. They demanded that officers recite oaths of office and fill out long questionnaires.
“To them, a police officer is just a man in a Halloween costume,” Finch said.
Other police departments began requesting their eight-hour seminars. Finch and Flowers now train agents of the FBI, DEA, ATF and Homeland Security — as well as district attorneys, clerks of court, judges and registrars nationwide. Finch says they are the only officers in the country who offer such street-level training.
They teach police to recognize sovereigns by their convoluted legal jargon and “Mouthe” defiance. “Sovereign citizens are more likely not to obey their commands and more likely to commit violence during a traffic stop,” Finch said.
Finch and Flowers often cite the 2010 deaths of two police officers in West Memphis, Ark., who were shot by a father-son sovereign team during a traffic stop for a bogus license plate. One officer had become distracted by a thick sheaf of papers thrust at him by one of the sovereigns.
Finch said he instructs officers to ignore paperwork other than license and registration. “Your antennae should immediately go up,” he tells officers. “They refuse to recognize your authority, and that creates a dangerous situation.”
As recently as August, two sheriff’s deputies in Laplace, La., were shot and killed in an ambush. Police said at least two of the five men accused in the killings were sovereign citizens.
In Florida, police approached Wright carefully because he had told them in past encounters that he was not subject to police authority. Wright paid his taxes with a handwritten “coupon for payment,” said Deputy Richard Aloy of the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Department. He had renounced his U.S. citizenship.
“They knew they had a bad person, and they took the necessary precautions,” Finch said.
Even nonviolent sovereigns can cause headaches through what Finch calls “paper terrorism.” Some squat in foreclosed homes and file phony deeds claiming ownership, “paying” with photos of silver dollars. Sovereigns believe U.S. currency has no value but recognize precious metals as valid currency.
Many sovereigns — including the father-son team in the Arkansas shooting — hold seminars of their own where they charge for lessons on redemption and tax avoidance. “You pay them in cash for them to tell you money has no value,” Finch said.
Officials from Greensboro and other cities pushed for a new North Carolina law that makes filing false liens a felony and not a misdemeanor. Finch said the law, coupled with training of court officials, has helped block or dismiss many phony liens and nuisance lawsuits.
But sovereigns continue to file suits and liens, hoping to claim property and damages, Finch said.
At one meeting Finch attended, a charismatic sovereign citizen told a rapt audience that U.S. currency has no value. But he also explained how to redeem millions of dollars from secret U.S. Treasury accounts, and how to use the courts to evade government control and taxes.
Afterward, Finch said, he asked the man what he did for a living. He was a U.S. Postal Service worker.
Finch asked how he justified working for a government he considered illegitimate. “He told me he needed the money to live out his ideology,” he said.

Army Labeled Evangelicals as Religious Extremists
Apr 5, 2013
A U.S. Army training instructor listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism along with Al Qaeda and Hamas during a briefing with an Army Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania, Fox News has learned.
“We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,” said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.”
Material presented to soldiers at training session.
The incident occurred during an Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief on extremism. Topping the list is Evangelical Christianity. Other organizations listed included Catholicism, Al Qaeda, Hamas, the Ku Klux Klan, Sunni Muslims, and Nation of Islam.
The military also listed “Islamophobia” as a form of religious extremism.
Army spokesman George Wright told Fox News that this was an “isolated incident not condoned by the Dept. of the Army.”
“This slide was not produced by the Army and certainly does not reflect our policy or doctrine,” he said. “It was produced by an individual without anyone in the chain of command’s knowledge or permission.”
Wright said after the complaint was lodged, the presenter deleted the slide, and apologized.
“We consider the matter closed,” he said.
The incident was made public by a soldier who attended the briefing. He asked for copies of the presentation and sent them to the Chaplain Alliance.
“He considers himself an evangelical Christian and did not appreciate being classified with terrorists,” Crews told Fox News. “There was a pervasive attitude in the presentation that anything associated with religion is an extremist.”
The Archdiocese for the Military Services was shocked to learn that the Army considered Catholicism to be an example of extremism.
“The Archdiocese is astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist,” the Archdiocese said in a statement.
They want the Dept. of Defense to “ensure that taxpayer funds are never again used to present blatantly anti-religious material to the men and women in uniform.”
“In the notes it was clearly stated that the presenter was not a subject matter expert, and produced the material after conducting Internet research,” Wright said.
So if the presenter was not an expert, what were they doing presenting the material, Crews asked.
He said he had a chance to speak with the officer who conducted the briefing and she told him that she got her information from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“Why is there such dependence upon the work of the SPLC to decide hate groups and extremist groups,” Crews said. “It appears that some military entities are using definitions of ‘hate’ and ‘extreme’ from the lists of anti-Christian political organizations. That violates the apolitical stance appropriate for the military.”
But Mark Potok, a spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, told Fox News they did not provide the military with any list about religious extremism.
“It’s emphatically – 100 percent false,” Potok said.
He said the SPLC has never labeled Evangelical Christianity or Catholicism as extremist groups.
Crews said he is extremely disappointed in the military’s handling of the incident and said they need to fix the “gross distortions presented in the briefing.
“Those soldiers who were presented this material – they need to have a new briefing with corrected materials,” Crews said. “They need to undo the damage that was done.”
He also wants the military to consult chaplains about matters involving religion.
“All religious issues of this sort in the U.S. military should be channeled first through the Chiefs of Chaplains offices for review,” he said. “Do they really want to classify evangelicals and the Catholic Church as extremist groups?”
