FEAR FACTOR ~ Guest Editorial

This is our second guest editorial by Flotsam Jetsome whose editorials should stopped being called "guest" - I guess - because he's definitely "on the inside". This brilliant call-to-arms reaffirms that we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Please read it, and take his important advice.

Fear Factor
By Flotsam Jetsome

I remember the day when I decided to "seed" copies of Jerome Corsi's book "Where's the Birth Certificate". It was late May of this year, 2011, and I had just finished reading my pre-ordered copy ordered from Amazon. I was freshly livid over having read the revelations contained in that volume, and as luck would have it, ran across some guy posting on another internet site talking about leaving copies of the book laying around in public places for as-yet uneducated folks to discover. "Pure brilliance", I thought, and immediately went to my local bookstore and purchased five more copies. Thus my work as a conservative "subversive" began.

I took each of those initial six books (there have been more, since), including the one that I had originally ordered, and wrote on the inside cover  of each "This book is free to anyone who cares about the truth and in the sanctity of our Constitution. All I ask is that it be passed on to others who don't yet know that this is going on." With that, I set out and began depositing them at different places in my community. The first was tucked into the magazine rack of a crowded reception area at the family practice clinic of a local hospital. I was scared, as unbelievable as that may sound. I knew on an intellectual level that the apprehension I felt was irrational. America is a free country, right? I wasn't breaking any laws by placing the tome where I did, and yet I couldn't escape the feeling that what I was doing would somehow prompt immediate retaliation. I imagined, only halfway in jest, that as soon as the book left my hand, another person's hand would clamp itself down on my shoulder and ask me just what I thought I was doing. It didn't make sense, but knowing so didn't dispel the nervousness I felt, either. The "seeding" of tomes I placed after that was psychologically easier to accomplish, and I managed to disperse the remainder in less than an hour, including at such varied locations as on a bus, in a restaurant waiting area and in a hotel lobby, among others.

I've since moved on to annotating currency (writing on money, for Rio Linda inhabitants ~ PG) with the remark that "Obama's Birth Certificate is Fake" affixed, and with each note that I insert into the currency stream containing the message that the man occupying the Oval Office is a fraud who has posted on White House computer servers a complete fabrication of what is purported to be a genuine copy of a Certificate of Live Birth, my nervousness ebbs. There are several reasons for this, and first and foremost among them is that I have become more comfortable with the fact that it is not illegal to mark currency, so long as the money  has not been rendered unusable due to such marking. I can also say from personal experience that there are very few cashiers in America who would make an issue out of getting handed dollars that have been marked with the fake birth certificate message. Most don't even look closely enough at the money to remark upon it's annotated state, and as for the ones that do, I've found them to be curious, rather than indignant. And for the cagey patriot, there's the sneak delivery method. For those who wish to insert annotated money into the cash stream undetected, you can do what I do when presenting multiple bills: stamp a given number of notes with the message on the front, but for the top bill in the collection that is being handed over to the money handler, stamp that one on the back. When a group of four, five or more bills, especially ones of the same denomination are presented spread out "poker hand" style, the money handler almost never looks at the fronts of the notes that lay beneath the top one. They just see that there are the requisite number of "ones", and slip them into the register without another thought. It works. I see the same reaction (none) time and time again.


As The picture says, this is legal

The upshot of all of the foregoing is to point out that fear of reprisal, where annotation of money is concerned, is unfounded. There are no teams of Black Helicopter Dudes waiting to pounce upon the unwitting patriot stamper of money. We needn't  be fooled by the Obots' obfuscations, and likewise we needn't be cowed by threat of retaliation by fools who think that their temporary, illegal hold on power confers upon them the ability to subjugate the larger citizenry of a still-free country with impunity. No, our answer, rather than cowering in abject terror at the thought of jack-booted OThugs paying us a visit,  should instead be to leap boldly into the fray. The more of us that are in the intellectual trenches, the less effective the speech-suppressing artillery of the usurper's minions. There is indeed strength in numbers, and we should play to that strength.


I've stepped forward to fight for the integrity of our Constitution in the real world on a daily basis. Can you say the same?

If not you, who? If not now, when?

  1. Fantastic job on the article, Flotsom! You're right, we should never be afraid! I look forward to reading more of your guest editorials!

  2. Well said, F&J. Everyone should read this because we are too afraid. We are afraid of being mocked and afraid someone will try to kill us. That's crazy, as you say. We should just continue to get in peoples faces as much as we can. Good job.

  4. Alexpdf,

    We should never be afraid to speak our mind. The writer is correct. The more they try to silence us the louder we get.

  5. If we don't use our voices now we may not have them soon. I agree with this I am also writing Obama's Birth Certificate Is A Forgery on my money I use for every day spending. The writer is correct. At first you feel worried about doing it, like someone is going to arrest you. Then later on you never think twice about it. Speak up now or lose your voice for good.

  7. I too was leary at first. My family feared I was goin to jail. I assured them IF I did that at least it would be FED and that is Country Club.
    There is no fear as there is nothing illegal and it is a great smug feeling knowing I am not just bloggin and bitchin (which I do too, A lot)but am actually DOING something that will help to get the word out to those who do not blog or have access to the new TRUE media (us). It WILL spark conversation and debate where some have no other input but what they are *fed* by the media. Plus,it gives me a *tingle* up my arm with each bill passed on!

  10. The mainstream media WILL silence us if they can if we don't speak up now!!!!! Remember the FAIRNESS DOCTRINE democrats wanted to pass about forcing radio to have left and right equally while the rest of the media could do whatever it wanted? If we don;t speak up now they WILL shut our voices off for good! Don;t be afraid to speak! Be afraid of what will happen if you stay silent!

    Kudos on another well-written piece, FJ. May the books you seeded find nothing but soft, rich soil to sprout from.

    By the way, I've been marking bills as well and have wondered whether it makes a difference to do this in black or red ink. I've been using red out of fear that using black might cause machines to spew the bills back out. My thinking is that using red will keep the marking from being detected by the machines. Am I right on this?

  12. Cali,
    I've been using red ink also. I do so more for the reason that it draws the eye better, but I believe you may be correct on its not being picked up by machines, because I have passed the red-ink marked notes into machines many, many times already with no problems.

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words. Hopefully many people will see them, and even if they don't post here, they'll heed to call to action.

  13. FJ,

    Dr. Corsi e-mailed and called your editorial "impressive". Congratulations. Well done!

  14. Cali and FJ: I mark with a red sharpie. I think the red is easier to see. I think the handwritten note is easier to see as well than the stamp.

    FJ: loved your guest entry today! Thank you!

  15. Simply outstanding. If everyone would say this kind of thing we would be a different nation.

  16. I understand this money marking idea, now. For all anyone knows it just might work. Anything is worth a try. I will pick up my red sharpie in town tomorrow and get started paying for things with this marked money by this weekend. Anything is better than watching the country go to hell while the newscasters and politicians do nothing.

  17. I am using a red ink stamp. The sharpie works great too! I seeding about 30+ bills a week. Keep up the great work everyone!

  18. As the article says, we have nothing to fear but fear itself.

  19. @PG,
    Dr. Corsi liked the piece? OMG, I'm going to have to get wider doors installed at home to accommodate my swelled head! ;)

    To fellow "stampers": don't let PG fool you; he took what was a fairly raw, plain-text submission and made it shine. Thanks PG for giving us a forum here, and for manning the helm at Obamafake.

  20. @Flag,
    That's what I'm talking about! The whole point of this exercise is to get the word out, directly, to MILLIONS, based on even a relatively small number of active participants inserting marked money into the economy. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) actually uses the dollar bill dispersal data from wheresgeorge.com (a money stamping/annotation game) to predict the spread of viral outbreaks. The statistical dispersal models are simply astonishing. This isn't some crackpot "well, I'll try anything" gambit. Even a small number of dedicated souls marking their cash with the requisite message can reach a huge number of people in a very short period of time using this technique. And the media and other *ahem* entities can't do a damn thing about it. Thus is the "stamper" movement is born. As in, stamp out the fraud and corruption infesting the People's government.

    Welcome to the doer's circle, fellow patriot!

    If not you, who? If not now, when?

  21. FJ,

    He said it was "impressive" which sounds a little bit more than just "like".

    Flag,

    FJ is right. And welcome to the growing crowd of people who are fed up with talking to politicians and a hateful media and have decided instead to start talking to fellow Americans in the physical world, not just the internet - and spreading the word *loudly*.

    The "STAMPER" movement! The scary part is, that in the world in which we live, I can see it catching on.
