"Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. (R-Va.) is
certainly not alone in his state of moral corruption, but, he is an excellent
example of precisely what is wrong with so many of our elected
leaders and what constitutes perhaps the
single greatest threat to our democracy from within. I have sworn an oath to
defend our Constitution and protect freedom and democracy from foreign enemies. Yet, in these past
few years I have grown equally fearful of domestic enemies and now count Virgil
H. Goode Jr. as one of them. Now I not only have deviant
ideologues in front of me, but I also have
them at my back." - Jason R. Schneider

(or a psychopathic concept added by
court reporter rears its ugly head and darn near destroys US) Up until 1886 Supreme Court doctrine complied with the
Constitution's contextual history. In
the words of Chief Justice Marshall in the famous Trustees of Dartmouth College
v. Woodward case, corporations were "artifcial being[s], invisible, intangible,
and existing only in the contemplation of the law."
A corporation was a "creature of the law" that did not possess
inalienable human rights, but rather "only those properties which the charter
of creation confer on it." Corporate interests were protected in some ways, of
course - for example, corporations could assert rights under such provisions as
the Constitution's Contracts Clause to limit changes to their corporate
charters - but corporations could be extensively regulated to ensure that they
did not abuse the special privileges and protections governments conferred on
them that were not shared by individuals. This was the settled understanding
both before the Civil
War, and after, when the Fourteenth Amendment was added to the
Constitution, requiring states to respect the fundamental rights of all
This settled understanding was thrown into question in 1886

Fourteenth Amendment. The Supreme Court's actual opinion never reached the
constitutional question in the case, but the court reporter - himself a former
railroad man - took it upon himself to insert into his published notes Chief
Justice Waite's oral argument statement that the Fourteenth Amendment protects
Through this highly irregular bureaucratic move, bereft
of any reasoning or explanation, outside bribery, the psychopathic concept that
corporations were "persons" and had the same rights as individuals - for many
purposes - was introduced into constitutional law.

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
created 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 Life - 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 Life 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

intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the

behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on

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.
