60-year-old Dr. James Redd was the only physician in Blanding,
Utah for several years and was known for traveling to treat patients at all
On June 10, 2009 150 federal agents wearing flak jackets swooped
into the small village (population 3,200) and handcuffed 16 suspects including
Dr. James Redd in operation "Cerberus Action" for dealing in Native
American artifacts found on public lands.
"Eighteen vehicles surrounded
the Redds' house." - San Juan County Supervisor Bruce Adams
surrounded a pair of mobile homes belonging to septuagenarian brothers and led
them away in cuffs.
The day after his arrest, Dr. Redd killed himself.
"I'm very sad. Dr. Redd was a good friend of mine. Dr. Redd was one of
a kind; he was good to everyone." - Mark Maryboy, former San Juan County

"The whole point
they wished to make is gone," said Winston Hurst, a Blanding native and
archaeologist who has long fought against the digging up of ancient graves, a
practice known locally as pot-hunting.
"It's completely swamped by the
ridiculous imagery of people
in their flak jackets taking some old sucker, shackled hands and feet, and
shuffling him into the slammer."
Once home to a thriving Native
American civilization, the Four Corners area is covered with ancient burial
sites. San Juan County alone has 100,000.
When a house is built here,
it's not uncommon to unearth a few artifacts while digging the foundation.
For decades, locals were encouraged to prospect for these ancient
treasures. Congress passed a law banning the practice in 1979.
Sheriff Mike Lacy said that an antiquities dealer became a federal informant
who reached out to the defendants in the case, offering large amounts of cash -
$335,000 in total - for a plethora of artifacts --

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality
and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel
through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the
human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious
ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes,
has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
