I read with great interest your editorial on government corruption. To really understand corruption in the government you must first understand the extent of corruption. It reminds me of a college 101 course that I was required to take as a freshman entitled “How to lie with statistics.” The course was less about numbers than just plain critical thinking.
The unexamined life is not worth living. A thought stated by Socrates during his trial for corrupting the youth, in which he received a death sentence. For years I have taken this statement to heart, not just as a personal reflection, but also as a professional one. For some strange reason I perform this yearly ritualistic task on Thanksgiving Day. I guess the rationale behind that is Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks to God for the blessings one has received. Although it is nice to reflect on the good things, I find I gain more knowledge from understanding the reasoning behind why I failed at a certain task. No matter if you win or if you lose, you must grow from each experience.
Besides growing from your experiences, there are important questions one must ask oneself in order to gain an understanding of one’s value. That value is not measured by the size of your bank account, but the size of your heart. It’s not what you earned, but what you gave away. What have I done for the world and would what I do be missed if it was no longer offered? How many others offer the same service as you, or is my service unique? Lastly, you must ask yourself, why you do what you do. Is it to receive the praise of men? Then what you’ve earned here in the world is your only reward. Or, is it for the Glory of God, which means that your reward will come at a later time.
In reflecting on what we (John and Bruce) were able to accomplish with our non-profit, the Institute for Complexity Management (ICM), I was very pleased with the answers to the probing questions asked above. The Institute for Complexity Management is a 501 (c) (3) charity. ICM sponsors two programs under their banner. Those programs are The National School Safety Collaboratory (NSSC) (http://nationalschoolsafetycollaboratory.org/) and the John Galt Program for Investigative Studies (JGPIS) (https://jgpis.org/).
The mission of the National School Safety Collaboratory is “to provide a safe and conducive learning environment for our children.” Our service is to provided risk management software and information to prevent copycat crimes at schools and/or universities. We provide quality whitepapers as well as surveys so that we can understand the trends that are happening in our country. We try to provide all these services free of charge. The only way we can accomplish what we are trying to do is by the generosity of those who find value in the service we provide.
The mission at the John Galt Program for Investigative Studies is to help small business protect themselves against encroachment into their intellectual property. We provide pro-bono work to help small business create investigative reports concerning how the entity infringed on that company’s intellectual property. Again, we survive on the donations of others that allow us to perform this service.
Although businessmen would consider our ability to raise revenue a failure, I believe it was a success. We have raised $6,895 as of the writing of this story. But, last year we only raised $220. So it was a 97% increase in our revenue. That money was not used to pay any salaries, but to help protect our children at school and to help others fight the good fight. We did spend $1,000 on a consultant who performed far more than the money we could pay her. And we spent $1,000 on travel. The travel was to help prepare one of the companies we are helping at the John Galt Program for Investigative Studies to fight the government that stole that company’s intellectual property. We are very pleased with how that case is progressing in the courts.
Besides the case mentioned above, we wrote constructive notices for two other companies, The Wesleyan Company and FoodQuestTQ. We had to send out all correspondences in those two cases via certified mail. Additionally, we posted and boosted numerous articles (both on school safety and on government encroachment) on social media that cost us $1,415.65. So as of the writing of this article we have a total $813.59 left in our bank account.
The things we have accomplished, I believe, could not have been done by anyone else. Who else do you know would perform 5000 hours of quality legal work and receive $0 compensation? And, if we didn’t help others to fight against an over reaching government, then who would? We sponsored two surveys in the National School Safety Collaboratory and one in JGPIS. All research is performed by a staff of two, with outside help at times. All social media and web portals are also managed by the same staff of two. Although it would be nice to eventually pay our staff, no staff member has been paid since the inception of ICM 10 years ago. All work is done out of the generosity of their hearts. Their reward will definitely be in heaven.
So after reviewing the facts of what we have done at ICM, I must say it has not been for the money. That I hope is apparent. But, what we have done is enriched the souls of others. It allowed others to see that they are not alone in their fight against an over reaching government. In the military, we would say we got your six. And, if we saved one child’s life by the information we have shared at NSSC, it has been worth the many hours spent finding and sharing information. With all that was stated, I consider the last year a total and complete success.
Yes, others may look at our bank account and say we have failed. It is unfortunate for them not to be able to see the deposits we have made into the hearts and minds of those who have benefitted from our services. As for John and I, we consider ourselves the richest men in the world. For when we saw a brother or sister in need, we helped. What is more valuable than that?
(NaturalNews) It isn’t often that a federal government agency or official admits wrongdoing. In fact, it almost never happens.
But in June, one official from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) broke that trend when he admitted that he had stolen a massive amount of intellectual property.
A SURPRISING NEXUS
On July 24, 2014, a surprising nexus occurred between Michael McKibben, founder of Leader Technologies, Inc., Columbus, Ohio, inventor of social networking, and Jon Waters, director of The Ohio State University Marching Band. Waters was fired on July 24, 2014, and that firing uncovered Wadsworth, Livermore Labs and Battelle.
FACEBOOK ENJOYS THE INVENTION OF COLUMBUS, OHIO INVENTORS WITHOUT COMPENSATION
On July 27, 2010, McKibben proved in Delaware federal court (Wilmington, DE) that Facebook infringed his patent, and that the engine running Facebook is his invention. Despite proving the theft of his invention by Facebook, the federal courts (all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court) have protected Facebook using unfounded legal pretext. The judicial misconduct is evident in the judges’ own public disclosures. Every one of them holds stock in Facebook, Facebook’s underwriters JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs, and Facebook’s key shareholders including Vanguard, T. Rowe Price and Fidelity. They also have numerous undisclosed relationships with Facebook’s attorneys.
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–3rd Eye Surveillance, a small business that designs, installs and services digital video surveillance systems, has filed an infringement lawsuit against the federal government in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims seeking damages exceeding $1 billion for unlawful use of the company’s three video and image surveillance patents. The owner of the patents, Discovery Patents, LLC of Baltimore Maryland, is also a Plaintiff.
“The federal government has knowingly infringed 3rd Eye’s patent rights and has impeded the company’s ability to do business”
James Otis Faulkner, the founder of Discovery Patents, invented the surveillance system patents in 2002 to improve residential and commercial security alarm systems while helping safeguard people and property from potential emergencies, including criminal activity, acts of terror, natural disasters and medical emergencies.
Some of us may still believe that there is equal justice under the law. But the ones who are most likely to believe it are the lucky ones amongst us who’ve never had to really find out. Well, here’s a story that may make you think a bit differently about what equal justice under the law actually means.
A few years ago, I decided to become an entrepreneur. A word that conjures up all sorts of images and emotions-like innovation, no bosses, creativity, big money and more. Well, suffice it to say, becoming a successful entrepreneur was a lot easier said than done-at least in my case.
My first big step was to go back to college and do years of research to get my doctoral degree. Then I got a patent based on my research. My next step was to convince some wealthy investors that I could make them some money.
From here, I put everything I owned into the business along with several million dollars from my investors. The idea was to create a new generation of risk management software based on my research that would make the food we all eat safer.
In developing the food safety software I briefed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about what my little company was up to. What I wanted to do is make sure that what I was developing helped the government do a better job of oversight of the food companies they regulate. But this is where things quickly began to go south.
The FDA started by taking my doctoral research and using it to write the government’s own plan for protecting the nation’s food supply. Ouch! But the thievery didn’t stop there. The FDA then took the software that I was trying to sell to the food industry and had it duplicated by their contractors. Double ouch! But the death knell for my little company came when the FDA gave away the software they duplicated for all of the food companies out there to use for free. Triple ouch! The bottom completely dropped out of our sales and my dreams of being an entrepreneur were soundly dashed.
So what did I do? There were two choices. Move on or fight for justice. I chose to fight back not just for myself but for everyone who still believes in the American dream of becoming an entrepreneur and starting your own business.
This is when, just like a hamster on a treadmill, I began the never ending journey to get nowhere fast. Good guess-I started with congress. But everyone I went to on the Hill told me, “We don’t get involved in legal matters,” and told me to get a lawyer even though every one of them knew I couldn’t afford one. But the government buck didn’t stop there.
Then I wrote letters to the Inspector Generals at the Department of Health and Human Services and Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Small Business Administration, the White House and on and on. But no one would lift a finger to help and the buck still goes on and on.
This year, I decided to step off the treadmill and I started a new initiative to stop the government’s buck. The John Galt Program for Investigative Studies focuses on Americans who are being denied their Constitutional rights.
