Buffalohair, Visions & Encounters of the Third Kind and the Turd Kind

Visions & Encounters of the Third Kind and the Turd Kind

 

From what I’ve discovered over the years spirits of many designs actually need the living to pull off their capers. Star guys are only spirits with spiffy stuff to zip around the universe with and a bazillion toys that can do just about anything I suppose. Other spirits float through walls and perform parlor tricks to intimidate and ultimately control people. But if these dudes were so bad then why do they need earth guys in the first place? Clearly, beings that claim to be ‘all that’ surely are not G*D’s. They express ego and talk smack about how cool they are but on the contrary they are codependent and need us more then they let on. Screw’em!

 

 

Years ago I had one of many ethereal conversations with a client of mine when I was his personal bodyguard. He was a member of an ancient secret society, retained an advanced degree within his ilk and proud of his Rothschild lineage. We got on the subject of aliens, UFO’s and space when out of the blue he said; “What makes you think they all come from outer space?” Hmm, that was a good one. Rather than dispel such foolishness about life in space he jumped in with both feet and he gave me some insights from his perspective. Apparently he had encounters of an intellectual nature rather than getting the ole anal exam or chased around a cornfield by orbs with flashing lights. From what I gathered his ‘sacred’ encounter was initially made through his lodge whence he achieved a higher degree. OK so he may have been a nut case, but a multi millionaire nut case with lodge brothers who shared in this sacred liaison with Mork or what ever his name was.

 

 

Though I was not in a lodge at the time I’ve encountered star dudes on more than one occasion under many different circumstances through the years, what a pain in the ass. I discovered some were just as lame as spirits from the spirit world who feed on people’s fears to gain control. After you get over the ga ga it is the same ole same ole since there are good and bad beings in the universe and they are dealt with in the same manner as butthead entities who influence spiritually blind earth guys. If Constantine were to realize this fact then he would not have killed in the name of G*D several thousand years ago. Personally I believe he was a total B.S. artist or simply went ga ga when approached by spirits in shiny contraptions. After all, Ramses II concocted the monotheistic religion scam simply to gather troops under one flag and that was Constantine’s goal as well, what a dick.

 

 

The waning years of Roman domination made ole Connie a desperate man in need of retaining Roma’s greatness. His miracle in the sky was nothing more than an encounter of the third kind or the turd kind, do the math. Evidence points to the latter and man has been killing in the name of G*D ever since. You just got to wonder, why would G*D break his own commandment simple so Roma could retain it’s dominance of an empire? That was not a sign from G*D.  Man got it all wrong and elitists have been following what I perceive as the proverbial Anti-Christ ever since. It should be obvious that mainstream dogmas from around the world also suffered a similar fate as man mistook evil spirits for good. In it’s wake ‘Holy Wars’ pock marked world history with genocide and killed in the name their respective G*Ds. How far beyond stupid is that?

 

 

More people than not have experienced terrestrial, extraterrestrial and spiritual encounters through the ages. From the average Joe to professionals in all quarters of society encounters continue to occur. For the most part many people placed their experiences in a safe place deep within their subconscious because this reality was too much to bear. The very notion of paranormal activity sends them over the edge with fear making them the perfect candidates for unscrupulous beings to take them over mentally. Others are simply in deep denial and rebuke anything to do with supernatural activity. They are also prime candidates for manipulation by evil types, space or spiritual because this is just another expression of fear regardless of their nay saying. But then there are those who’ve grasped the totality and the reality of the paranormal.

 

 

The people who’ve grasped the nature of our true existence in the grand scheme of things come in only two flavors, good or evil. On one side there are folks and sects that embraced evil because of the rewards it gleans. From secrets of the universe, technology and the gift world domination they reap the benefits of their unholy alliance with cracker-head spirits and beings. Their mystical connection with evil supernatural beings was an encounter of the turd kind from the perspective of victims who endured atrocities elitists reined on humanity with impunity. The easiest path to walk is the path of evil for it reaps a material reward as compensation for doing evils bidding and there are plenty of people who literally sold their souls for material wealth over the centuries. They even formed sects that retained this connection with bad spirits and the knowledge they shared. These secular and exclusive organizations live on today and the axiom of greed and deception are their calling card.

 

 

Europe was rinsed of their traditional people long before the holocaust of the America’s. Africa continues to suffer unconscionable human suffer at the hands of elitist corporations who denude the land of natural resources in the name of prosperity but for whom? Obviously the sons and daughters of Africa were left out of the loop and continue to live in abject poverty. Cries for democracy from the Mid-East fall on deaf ears as dictators are coddled for crimes against humanity. Their alliances with corporate thugs is getting harder to conceal as the United Nations (Useless Nimrods) skirts crimes against the humanity labeling women & children as rebels to coincide with Assad’s loathsome rhetoric in the case of the Syrian uprising. Egypt can’t forget how the west placed Mubarak thugs in positions of authority after the Egyptian Spring. What were you thinking or was it intentional?

 

 

In Asia the Kachin people continue to be slaughtered for their land and natural resources by the hopelessly corrupt government of Burma while the western world rewards eugenics by lifting sanctions. China harvests human organs from unwilling Falun Gong practitioners and other slaves at labor camps, cooked female baby corpses are used as aphrodisiacs and the CCP continues to murder people and whole villages if they are opposed.Tibet continues to be raped by China and her people murdered like rabbits in a barrel. Uyghur’s are singled out and labeled Jihadist terrorists to garner western support because they oppose China’s oppression of their people. The robbery of natural resources and ethnic cleansing on traditional Uyghur land has become an excepted business practice as the corporate west looks the other way. It is probably do to the fact the west is doing the same thing in Africa and South America to the indigenous populations.

 

 

Chinese people continue to kill themselves as the only way to free themselves from tyranny and forced labor to produce goods for American firms but we still buy their fetid blood soaked goods. And the list of atrocities committed in the name of profits continues unabated all because we want a cheap TV or stupid gadget filled cell phone. And it’s all because butthead humans intentionally choose to follow evil spirits of all design. This is evil personified but the list does not end there. The West ignored evils grasp and influence in the past and now they are paying the price for their ambivalence. Austerity is the unscrupulous destruction of national sovereignty by global elitists, the descendants of the original ass kissers of evil entities or space puke. And I find it ironic Greece was chosen as the first nation to have democracy destroyed by the very criminals who bankrupted her. The symbolism behind the destruction of the world first democracy by corporate oligarchists is compelling evidence Greece’s financial disaster was intentional. The empire of greed and deception has counted coup on its first nation under the guidance of evil sewage.

 

 

Then there are those who are aware of our realities and choose to walk with good spirits. Their story is not cluttered and distorted by the quest for material wealth at the cost of their soul and the blood of others. The rewards for walking a good path can’t be measured tangibly but spiritually. The wealth of knowledge gained from this sacred union is priceless and there is no monetary figure one could place on the insights good entities provide, especially in the time of change. The destiny of man is carved in stone but evil is working overtime to alter their destiny but that is the fodder of prophetic teachings from around the world.

 

 

Open your sacred text and read it for yourself. Unfortunately the good path is writhe with tumultuous events designed to break the spirit and cripple ones faith. There are no stones that will not be turned as evil tries to destroy lives, families and the world in their efforts to conquer the elements of good. Below the belt, you bet but that is to be expected from cowards and vermin who proclaim to be G*Ds and masters of the universe. Paleeze………

 

 

According to entities of good from all dimensions of the universe; evil will betray the minions who followed them as the demise of their fetid empire comes irrevocably closer. Generations of elitist loyalty will draw to a close as evil entities scramble to save their own boney asses. Unfortunately for them, they are toast as well as their minions for their efforts to alter destiny will fail. The intangible aspects of change will reveal life that was once considered the stuff of fairytales and science fiction as worlds merge with ours on a grand scale. At some point everyone will know life’s reality but many will still choose the darker more convenient path and race to their own demise, willingly. One woman told me she would rather die in Wal-Mart shopping in a catastrophe rather then face any spirit good or bad. That’s just to lame.

 

 

The earth will be indiscriminate as she cleanses herself of everything that causes her discomfort and man is on the top of the list of hemorrhoids that has become a real pain in the arse. Man’s mindless race to rule the world will be answered in a deliberate series of disasters both known to man and events that will stagger the imagination. There will be nowhere one can go that will not face absolute change and it was said many elitists will perish in their man made tombs, their memory erased from the annals of humanity. The laws of physics and chemistry will change rendering contemporary technology useless at best as entities of good make a stand with Ma Earth for humanities sake.

 

 

Within my tradition it is said, “The top will become the bottom and the bottom will be the top”. Other dogmatic teachings foretell, “The meek shall inherit the earth”. I say, “You greedy bastards of the elite class are toast so enjoy your platinum toilet while it still has worth because you are about to have a close encounter of the turd kind asshole”. As for you supernatural pinheads of deceit regardless of where you reside your days are also numbered for the spirits of good already have you in their gun sights and there is nothing you and your technological asses can do about it, bada bing, bada bang, bada boom, capice?

 

 

I was going to write about my personal encounters and the many different kinds of people who reside within this universe but it does not really matter. If you the individual possess absolute faith within your dogma or ideological principle it will not matter what a spirit or alien entity looks like for you will posses the ability to discern the good from the bad. It is written within your sacred books and oral traditions. I’ll give you a few little tidbits from my personal experiences and encounters though. Not all space travelers require space suits or ships to traverse the universe, all spirits both good and bad speak a universal language we all understand regardless of our earthbound ethnicities and angels are angels not space dudes in metallic Frisbees. For that matter religious icons and the spirits within all sacred teachings and dogmas are just as they appear not to be confused with other entities we will soon encounter. It’s not a secret for the ancients tried in vain to give us the rundown on stone and oral traditions.

 

 

I am only one of many people from around the world who shares this knowledge & experiences and if you think you are alone with this sacred knowledge, think again. But please, don’t run around claiming to be a medicine man just because spirits chat with you, that’s soooo tacky. If you want to pick up chicks, find another angle homie because that one will get you into serious trouble in the real world of the paranormal. The spirit world and the so-called secrets of the universe were originally meant for everyone not hoarded by an elite group of thugs who used this knowledge to enslave the world while enriching themselves. And umm, you might find yourself a nice seal skin coat and a quality pair of mukluks because after global warming will come the great chill. There will also be places on earth the snow will fall for weeks if not months burying communities so deep they will be impossible to recover. That’s what they say, so don’t blame me.

 

 

In some regions people will experience the temporary loss of atmosphere from celestial events our alchemists never knew existed, to the tune of about -456 F so grab a sweater. Don’t ask me for a timeline, ask your sacred dude because this info will be exclusive to those living in that region so have your spiritual ducks in a row or you might miss the warning. December 21st 2012 will only mark the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Earth changes have already begun and will continue well beyond the 21st as Ma Earth counts coup on stupid earth guys and pinhead entities of evil. Even the good guys will have to break a sweat to survive but having a spiritual connection will definitely be the cats meow and increase survivability a thousand fold.

 

 

Opps, I may have mixed visions with conversations I had with good spirits and space dudes, sue me. I’ve also seen earth after the change but I’ll save that for another time provided the plug is not pulled yet. All I can say is if there was ever something to live for it would be the future when the buffalo return to the plains and humanity is the law of the land. Yup, there is life after change but if you are way into materialism then you might be better off following the false G*D of your choosing. It will be to boring for you in the future provided you survive. Take it or leave it, it’s all on you now.

Having Visions & Surviving Them

By now many people who’ve been plagued with ‘fitful dreams or visions’ are well aware these premonitions are coming to pass. In speaking with readers from a multitude of countries it is clear no single culture can claim exclusivity with regard to spirituality & visions. For people who’ve come to terms with life’s paranormal realities, it is not a matter of ‘If’ visions are real but how to survive them as prophetic events strike at the core of their lives and sensibilities, myself included.

 

 

I’m not immune to the time of change and share a place in the trenches with the rest of you buttheads as prophecies come to pass. It should be as plain as the nose on your face that evil, greed and deception are the cornerstones of mankind’s ‘New Era’ of globalization. Morality was replaced by the corporate bottom line and the cries of the innocent are an exercise in futility. Industries lust for rare earth minerals, oil & gold and will resort to criminality and genocide to acquisition minerals around the world to the joy of their investors. In the grand scheme of things investors are equally culpable for the sins corporate thugs commit in the name of profits. In essence investors have as much blood on their hands as investees and ultimately will share in the retribution their antics spawned. What comes around, goes around homeboy so don’t snivel like a baby when you get a taste of your own medicine eh. It will not fly but you can kid yourselves all you want but the only people you will fool is yourself. That’s the bug in the ointment for people who claim they were unaware or oblivious of the crimes committed by their investees and blind trusts are only sugar coated blood money.

 

 

The good news is the fact man’s reign of greed and deception is reaching its crescendo in one of the most elaborate pyramid schemes ever concocted, globalization. Centuries and centuries of abuse by a hand full of families are coming to a close boys and girls as predicted within a multitude of dogmas & oral traditions and it does not stop there. Dogmas and ideological principles from throughout the planet describe catastrophic disasters of every kind. I’ve yet to find words to describe what I’ve seen in visions since I never saw or heard of these events before in nature. We will soon learn how other advanced civilizations simply went kaput. Take it or leave it but that’s what I’ve seen in visions since I was a poop butt kid and I can safely say many of my readers around the world share these very same visions.

 

 

With all that said, adnauseam I might add, there is the personal aspect to the era we live. We can prepare physically for catastrophe with shelters, stocks of food, water and guns but we are powerless to defend ourselves from those butt crack spirits that manipulate ‘simple’ minds. But if you are already hooked up within your dogma or ideological principle this is a no brainer and you already prepared for the spirit war that is happening at this very moment. The only problem is the fact you might be prepared spiritually but that does not mean everyone else around you is, and that’s where the kink in the garden hose is. It’s a real pisser I tell yea.

 

 

No matter how much you prepare spiritually there is no guarantees and we can’t dodge mankind’s proverbial bullet when people around us begin to lose control and follow the influences of evil. The family unit is the primary target for bad spirits and they are working over time and family units are being destroyed around the world. Remember that brother against brother and father against son part of prophecy? That is in full bloom as family after family falls pray to spirits who are attacking them. Why? Well it is really quite simply since family has strength and a bond that evil can’t quite stand and they will go out of their way to crap in your corn flakes.

 

Not all families are being destroyed but if you asked a family that is still bonded they will tell you how much crap they are

taking from just about everywhere. It’s those butt crack spirits trying to screw them over and they will resort to anything to break the bond of a family unit. Other families who are not in tune are killing their kids, husbands/wives and destroying their own lives for a host of lame reasons, especially from stupid voice in their pin-heads. The news is wracked with stories of abuses, murders and suicides from seemingly healthy families in the heart of suburbia. Families that were considered pillars of the community by their peers are doing some crazy ka ka. From sacrificing their kids to roasting them in the oven, people are losing a grip with sanity in droves.  

 

For people like me who are aware of this time of change it is not a matter of proving that change is here, it’s a matter of surviving all those visions and prophecies we know are coming. I’ve seen and experienced some strange things in my lifetime but watching the masses go mad must be the highlight of my paranormal experiences to date. Space dudes don’t hold a candle to this new form of mass hysteria but they will add to the chaos in the future. But rest assured this is only the beginning for the spirit-world is going into hyper drive. Sadly world leaders are in the deep pockets of evil and from what we already know, evil is in the drivers seat and doing a fine job in many nations.   

 

People rant about Scientology, pointing fingers at Elron Hubbard’s crew and scared entity but not a peep is uttered about the other secretive groups the elitists from around the world are members of. Elitists are in for a big surprise because they are destined to be betrayed by their own and sacred entities for that is prophecy as well. Just suppose these elitists are all ga ga with some alien being they presume to be benevolent and the true keeps of the secrets of the universe. Obviously these pencil neck geeks will be considered G*D’s but that is pure blarney and I am surprised these so called educated elitists fell for it in the first place. But as we all know, greed blinds a person’s soul and humans are really stupid anyway when it comes down to it. Like chickens in a coup, people will follow anyone who offers them some corn with a promise of more, even the devil himself apparently.

 

Mankind never actually became ‘civilized’ and is only a half step away from the stone age and eating thy neighbor. I still can’t find the passage in their sacred book that states where it is OK to kill people, take their land and murder the survivors though. Just skip the civilized part, mankind is just stupid and should stick their tongues in a wall socket and save Ma Earth the trouble making them extinct. Man has been stupid for a long time; just go back to the time of Ramses the 2nd and the shameful use of religion so troops can fight under one religion. Butthead Constantine mistook aliens and UFO’s for a sign from G*D to kill people and that was pure stupid. Charlemagne only drove the point home and it all went down hill from there and through the ages. Using G*D to justify killing people was a contradiction of their sacred teachings but that’s OK, G*D said it’s cool to kill for material gain, riches, land and now; rare earth minerals. Funny how some very exclusive elitist groups claim lineage to those butt cracks of world history but that should be a sign as to who is following the false profit.

 

There is really nothing we serfs can do about it but bare in mind Ma Earth has something for their ass. The elitist’s days are numbered no matter how many advanced weapons they have and people they kill off to protect their lies, their ass is toast and there is nothing they can do about it. Their not-so-sacred entities will also be on the hot seat no matter what they try to do either. When the day comes elitists finally reveal their sacred connection I will not be impressed. Why pay homage to alien or spirit pukes who shared technology with greedy and reprehensible people over the millennia’s who used it to dominate and murder people”? I’ll wager the revelation of alien involvement with elitists will be more about control, domination and a way to keep the masses in check in a form of spiritual shock doctrine.

 

Bare in mind there are more spirits and aliens on earth now than every before and they are not all grays, browns and reptilians. Many look almost like us except for a few minor details and others don’t even need a craft to zip in and out of earth’s atmosphere.  Any supernatural crappola elitists reveal in the future will only verify my point they’ve been hooked up with bad spirits or star people all along. In my visions I saw people from all cultures totally freaking out when governments revealed their ‘sacred’ connection with extraterrestrials.

 

Having visions and getting a glimpse of what the future holds is sort of cool but also a major pain in the ass these days for me since I have to live through all this Scheiss, if I am lucky. I am not alone for there are people from across the globe from all quarters of society who are having the same visions as I only they are silent because of a myriad if reasons including the fear of being labeled a nut case. They also share anxiety or frustration at stupid earth guys who continue to ignore the warnings of the ancients. The time of change has already begun and Ma Earth is counting coup. ‘The Stupid Earth Guy Show’ is only in the 2nd act and the juicy stuff is yet to come and you ain’t seen nothing yet baby. You really need to get a grip on this era or you will die only because you were too lame to see the forest for the trees or decided to ignore common sense. But if you choose to kiss ass with aliens that governments claim are benevolent then maybe you would be better off dead because you will have given your soul to the devil, just like them.

Is Barack Obama Really an American? The $64 Question

Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Sotoro, or what ever, has been in a heated battle with birthers since he first ran for president of the United States of America. Well now he’s been president for 2 years and the controversy rages on but is it a valid point to reconnoiter? This is a free country and it is everyone’s right to ask and explore any question or issue they choose. For whatever its worth I think this is all nothing more than a distraction since this argument is not going any further than gathering support money for a mot point and nothing will come of it. Surely there are more pressing issues to contend with in this age of chaos.

There are a myriad of reasons why I believe Barack Hussein Obama is American but I’ll just give you an overview. The family tree on his mothers (Stanley Ann Dunham) side reads more like a “who is who” in US history. I am not a particular fan of Barack’s policies at times but I think he is as American as George Washington, or was he British? I found that his bloodline runs blue and pierces deep into the rich and tumultuous history of Ireland and England. Gads, he is related to all kinds of historic dudes throughout the ages. The Dunham family is immersed in history with quite a pedigree indeed. As for his dad, he was simply a young idealist from Kenya with some provocative liaisons with questionable political underpinnings. I don’t think Barack was being indoctrinated into communism when he visited with his dad for the only month they ever shared. I bet he wanted to get acquainted with the father he never knew and had a millions questions and issues to work out. I don’t buy into the various renditions of how he grew up that popped up recently, including his latest version though. His childhood was more a tragic journey and not the smoking gun of conspiracy people are looking for. Ole Arnold Schwarzenegger Kennedy was Austrian born and yet he was allowed to plunge California into economic chaos. Dare we mention the political affiliations his family enjoined in the past or is that different?

Constitution of the United States of America: Article Two, Clause 5

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Since I live by this document I must stand by Barack Obama on this issue since he is an American, lock stock and tomahawk. I may have some issues with our president but his lineage is not one of them. But I do have some issues with this part of his contract with America, his oath of office.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

To preserve, protect and defend Constitution of the United States, hmm. He is not the first president in recent years to sidestep the most important document in the United States of America either. This document has been pushed, tweaked and molded to fit the needs of previous presidents and their corporate constituents to such a degree it is all but unrecognizable, their interpretation that is. Sounds like religion because it is being used for geopolitical purposes rather than what it was intended for. Barack is a constitutional attorney so it’s not like he does not know the law of the land yet he continues down the path of unconstitutional lawlessness with legislation totally contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America and that is a slight problem eh. As usual we’ve taken the path of least resistance and allow our politicians to boldly violate the core tenets of this country. Use it or loose it and from all indicators we have lost it. Soon democracy will fade from existence as austerity becomes the catchword for the loss of national sovereignty but at least we got a birth certificate out of the deal.

Dan Leonetti Keeps a Promise to Little Joe Arridy

Joe Arridy, the mentally challenges man executed for a crime he did not commit, was granted a posthumous pardon by Governor Bill Ritter of Colorado on Jan 7, 2011. With the stroke of a pen the compassionate governor righted a wrong exonerating a man who was put to death in the gas chamber at the Canyon City Territorial Prison 72 years ago. Though Little Joe has since been diseased his haunting memory lived in the hearts and souls of those who knew his innocence. The noble efforts of renowned humanitarian Robert Perske and attorney David Martinez were not in vain for Joe was vindicated of a crime he did not have the capacity to understand or commit. Perske and Martinez selflessly achieved the impossible while facing insurmountable odds in obtaining this historic pardon of a dead man. But there was another champion in my eyes who fought for Joe’s justice. He introduced me to the plight of the man/child Joe Arridy. His weapon of choice was the pen and his name is Daniel Sanchez Leonetti, author of the screenplay “Woodpecker Waltz”.

Though I’ve written about Dan and his screenplay Woodpecker Waltz in the past I felt the need to speak with him again since Joe was finally exonerated. Dan was emotionally drawn to this mentally challenged man/child who suffered unfathomable abuses throughout his life. His screenplay was more than a movie about sadness and mistaken identity but rather a journey into the human psyche in an era where prejudices and hatred reigned. Joe was of Syrian decent and mentally challenged making him the perfect target for a career minded prosecutor and a hate filled population that had little regard for the truth.

Unfortunately not much has changed over the years as race and religious differences continue to fuel angry mobs looking for a scapegoat. Opportunistic prosecutors continue to advantageously bolster their careers with little regard for innocence or truth. Sensationalism and strategically leaked evidence convict people in the press tainting public opinion and jury pools before all the facts are known. It is all but impossible to find a truly unbiased jury and the innocent are plunged into the abyss of false convictions. Dan’s screenplay is a wake up call for not what we’ve been or have become but what we still are. But the screenplay also speaks volumes about Dan the writer for it reveals a noble champion of the innocent.

Knowing how deeply Dan felt about the Joe Arridy story I decided ask a few more question in light of this turn of events. Besides it was Dan’s idea to seek out a pardon. According to Dan the idea came to him as he was writing the screenplay. Then one day he made a promise to Joe at his grave site on Woodpecker Hill at the Colorado Territorial Prison that he would get him pardoned. Through the brilliant work of attorney David Martinez and the compassion Governor Bill Ritter felt for this man/child Dan kept his promise to Little Joe. And now the rest is history.

B. When did you first start working on the Joe Arridy story?

D. I first heard about the Joe Arridy case in 1995 when Robert Perske published his book Deadly Innocence. The local Pueblo Chieftain had done a feature story on Perske and the publication of his book. My sister, Connie, brought the newspaper to my house and said, “I think you better read this.” And I did. The image of a man with the mind of a child playing with his toy train on Death Row haunted me. It also set off a creative spark in me. I had to dig deeper into this tragic image.

B. What was your reason or why did you do the screenplay?

D. Immediately, I saw the potential of a screenplay in this tragic story. If Joe Arridy was truly innocent, a movie would have a devastating impact on the audience. I also saw a much deeper motive that I could tackle in this screenplay: the death penalty. The death penalty and abortion are the two biggest issues that try the minds and hearts of humanity. Joe Arridy could make his mark on one of them. Sixteen years later, the state of Illinois abolished the death penalty. I was told they cited the Joe Arridy case; shortly after Joe was pardoned by the Governor of Colorado.

B. How did you come to meet David Martinez?

D. David is a good friend of my cousin Antonio Sanchez. One evening he introduced me to David in Denver, and Antonio mentioned the Joe Arridy screenplay. He was slightly interested, but I think it lingered in his mind for years. Later he represented me in my epic battle with VA Administration for benefits. He did this pro bono for I didn’t have the funds to pay a good lawyer. I invited him to a ceremony that we had to put a tombstone for Joe on top of Woodpecker Hill in Canon City on June 2nd of 2007. David attended the ceremony. I think he was deeply moved by the passion he saw that day on top of Woodpecker Hill. He agreed to look into a posthumous pardon, but warned us that this kind of pardon had never been done before. And so we were going into battle with impossible odds from the very beginning.

B. How did you come to meet Bob Perske?

D. I met Bob when he came to Pueblo for a conference of area District Attorneys. He wanted to champion for the mentally challenged people, and how they are coerced into giving false confessions for crimes they didn’t commit. He wanted to stick his two cents into the conference, and he certainly did. Bob is a man who speaks on top of his principals and he is truly a man of character. He is true to his work, his word and his friends. But I had been in contact with him by telephone before the conference. Immediately after Connie brought me the story and called him in Darien CT. I told him that I wanted to write a screenplay on Joe Arridy and would he read another screenplay I had written to see if I was up to the task. He loved that screenplay and gave me permission to go ahead with Joe Arridy. But our early relationship was on shaky ground. I wasn’t totally convinced that Joe was innocent. Robert mailed me a ton of documents, but most importantly there was the two trial transcripts. When I finished with all the testimony, I saw where Joe was railroaded into Death Row for one of the most sensational murders in Colorado history. The fight was on, and it lasted 16 years.

B. Who else did you meet pertaining to the Joe Arridy story?

D. Most importantly I met Micheline and Max Keller, lawyer-producers from the Keller Entertainment Group in Los Angeles. They had heard about my screenplay, The Woodpecker Waltz, when I won the Third Annual Wordsfromhere Screenwriting Contest based in New York. Micheline called me on the telephone and I was immediately attracted to her warmth and sincerity. She loved the screenplay from the opening page which read: “A perfect soul cannot exist in an imperfect world.” The quote was from Dostoevsky’s The Idiot. They optioned the screenplay in 2004 and re-optioned in December of 2006 and again in 2010. The perseverance of these people showed me that they had a real passion to get the movie produced. Before that the screenplay had been optioned by Mark Castaldo of Destiny Pictures a company well-known for movies for TV. The story proved to be too big for both of them and those options lapsed. So the screenplay has been on a long road trip. Where it ends, I do not know.

B. Where did you find all the facts behind the story?

D. Bob send me a ton of newspapers, magazines, letters and of course the two trial transcripts by Fed-X. It was all the research he had gathered during the course of writing his book. Antonio also found some important details of the case by reviewing newspaper archives. He found the compelling story on the burning of Frank Aguilar’s house by Pueblo vigilantes. Aguilar was the real killer who was also executed for the crime in the gas chamber. But Antonio found the sad fact that Aguilar’s young daughter died in the fire, and the grandmother was exiled back to Mexico on a train. Not only did Joe’s family suffer great indignities, but so did Aguilar’s family. The repercussions just kept on going in this sad case of crime and punishment.

B. How do you feel knowing Joe was pardoned?

D. When I was told, I was competing in the state dart tournament in Loveland, Colorado. Most of the people in the tournament were aware of my story and my first novel that was recently published. A woman from Denver came up to me and said, “They pardoned Joe. We saw the story on television.” Instantly, tears came to my eyes and I had to find a quiet corner to reflect on the whole thing. It had been such an epic journey. I didn’t think Governor Bill Ritter would grant the pardon. He was a former, tough-nose Denver District Attorney and was on the other side of the river on crime issues. But later, when I read his elegant testimony for the pardon, I wept for the second time. He really got it. It hit him straight in the heart, and his gracious act made history as the first pardon for an executed man.

B. Is there another story in the works of this caliber you are working on?

D. I believe so. I am working on a rewrite for my screenplay, Inherit the Earth, which is based on the Ludlow Massacre. It also won a NY screenwriting contest, but I want it to be so polished that I won’t have to endure the endless options. Also, I am hard at work on the sequel to my novel, Joe and the UFO, and ironically David Martinez is also a part of this story. He was the lawyer, pro-bono of course, for the poor people in the San Luis Valley and their fight to retain the rights to their sacred lands. And finally, I am working on an epic novel about the West, based on real historical characters, and the triumphs and tragedies of the Cheyenne Nation, who once roamed Colorado as a free people. This will be the greatest reach in my work to date, and will be about 800 pages of manuscript when I am finished.

B. What is your opinion on the death penalty?

D. I struggle in my heart about this issue. I was very careful not to sway for or against the death penalty in my screenplay. I wanted the audience to search their own hearts and walk out of the theatre asking themselves what do I think and feel about the death penalty. When I read about vicious killers, I say stick a needle in them. But when I see people like Joe in prison or a case where DNA exonerates someone who has sat in prison for years, I want to abolish the death penalty. I am caught in the rabbit trap on this issue.

B. What is your opinion on mentally challenged people who are incarcerated at present?

D. There are 3,703 people on Death Row. More than 300 of them have mental retardation and await execution in the United States. Since 1979, 38 have been executed. Here is an instance where I am against the Death Penalty.

B. Do you feel that there are more Joe Arridy’s on death row that is innocent?

D. Yes, there is a great probability. Robert is working on a current case as we speak, about a man who has been incarcerated for a murder he didn’t commit. They are there, but hopefully Joe Arridy will give their lawyers new hope. David has cleared the path for them to follow.

B. Should there be an automatic DNA test on all rape cases?

D. Yes. Despite the enormous cost of this endeavor, we must always remember that the court system is terribly flawed. Joe Arridy’s attorney was incompetent and helped Joe on his way to the gas chamber. A poor man or woman has no chance under this system. Some French philosopher once said something to this effect: I would rather free a thousand guilty criminals than incarcerate one innocent man.

B. What is your attitude on the issue of career minded prosecutors who seek convictions on every case regardless of merit?

D. They should be incarcerated themselves for talking out of two faces. They took an oath to defend and uphold the laws of the United States, and then they bend them to fit their convictions.

B. What checks and balances would you feel appropriate to avoid another travesty of justice like in Joe’s case?

D. The main thing is for all of us to strive to be better human beings. Judges, lawyers, lawmakers, police, citizens we need to look into our hearts with the deepest compassion for fellow man, and truly make our decisions for the good of mankind. We can be punitive and compassionate at the same time.

It’s like Spike Lee said;

“Just do the right thing”

Brisbane Australia Under Water, Another Coincidence

Posted in Reflets Sombres with tags Brisbane, Corporatism, disasters, Flooding, greed, haiti, IMF, Time of Change, WTO on January 12, 2011 by buffalohair

It looks like another coincidence has occurred with the third largest city in Australia under water from an apocalyptic flood. Guess it was a coincidence 20 million Pakistanis lost their homes and livelihoods during their flood. But we should not forget China’s coincidence and the millions of people who’ve lost their homes. Hmm, am I forgetting something? Why yes I am since every continent on the planet has suffered catastrophic flooding this last year as well, coincidentally of course. Don’t matter anyway since the floods have not reached us, right? The fact you can still read this story is a testament to the fact these disasters only happen to other people. Guess the smart thing to do is go to the store and buy more stupid electronic junk to play with before solar flares render electronics useless, on credit. Then we can ignore the cries of the suffering in style since it’s not our concern.

Buffalohair, What Has Wikileaks Accomplished?

What Has Wikileaks Accomplished?

Posted in America’s, Europe with tags julian Assange, New World Order, punks, snitches, Treason, wikileaks news on December 4, 2010 by buffalohair

Above all else Wikileaks has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are no secrets in this new information age we live. As Americans go through debasing unnerving body scans and cavity searches at airports people in positions of authority are doling out secrets. Naked pictures of passengers flood the net from lack luster TSA employees. Treason and espionage has taken center stage as this budding cottage industry supplements the incomes for a myriad of disgruntled federal employees and service personnel. Wikileaks also provided the perfect catalyst for laundering funds from a host of terrorist organizations who applaud Julian’s performance. Wikileaks should be called Julian’s Jihad for no good or purpose will come from his exploits, just pandemonium. Read more »
