Madoff Victim Lawrence Velvel
Dean Mass. School of Law at Andover
A Massachusetts law school dean that lost money invested with swindler Bernard Madoff said that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was “willfully, horribly negligent” in failing to monitor his operation.
Lawrence Velvel, dean of the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover, said, “The SEC’s incredible willful negligence” to not seriously investigate Madoff’s operations despite repeated red flags and written warnings of his criminality probably makes the agency liable to legal action by aggrieved investors. The SEC, he said, “has no discretion—none—to fail to follow up, with serious investigations, when presented with knowledgeable, detailed, obviously highly competent, and in many respects easily ‘checkable’ allegations of...a huge fraud that is fooling thousands of people, stealing billions of dollars, and causing horrible injustice.”
Equally bad, says Velvel, the SEC was responsible for a lot of people being sucked into Madoff in the first place, because in 1992 it publicly announced that there was no fraud.
Referring to the preponderant majority of Madoff’s victims, Velvel said, “These are not the billionaires, or the huge institutions, that could hire expensive experts in due diligence…These are the plain people who worked hard and saved all their lives, as capitalism says they should, and who…depended on their government to protect them…but were failed by it because of one of the most willfully negligent, incompetent, and perhaps even complicitous courses of action any agency has ever engaged in.”

Cindy Sheehan, Author - Nobel Peace Nominee! Anti War Tax Resistor
Cindy Sheehan, is the internationally known anti-war activist whose son Casey died in Iraq. Sheehan gained national attention in early August 2005 when she traveled to President Bush's Prairie Chapel Ranch just outside Crawford, Texas, during his five-week vacation retreat there. Demanding a meeting with the President and an explanation of the "noble cause" for which her son died, she created a peace camp called Camp Casey by pitching a tent by the side of the road and announced her intention to stay, day and night, for the full five weeks, or until such a meeting was granted. She has also promised that, if she was not granted a second meeting, she will return to Crawford each time Bush visits there in the future.
Since the first Camp Casey, Cindy has established or inspired similar camps and protests all over the USA. Her journeys on behalf of the Peace Movement have taken her all over the world - Australia, South America, Europe. In all her travels and talks, she touches on how the president has betrayed the American people and exploited the brave men and women in uniform to bring more profit to his friends. "My goal is to bring our troops home to try and save another mother from going through what I am going through."
THE OBAMA FILES: CHRONICLES OF AN AWARD WINNING WAR CRIMINAL
by Cindy Sheehan
The Obama Files is Cindy Sheehan's latest book. The book is a six-year long chronicle of the hypocrisy of the US Empire and the abdication of the "left" in calling out the war crimes of "the first black US president."
Cindy's work shows clear-thinking and understanding of the truth behind the Empire of lies, but this is not a book about "gloating:" meant to awaken people to these truths that should be "self-evident" by now!
The Obama Files is now in its final stages of production and if you pre-order a copy today, you will get one of the first ones hot off the presses, signed by the author.
SPECIAL PREVIEW OF THE FOREWORD BY THE FABULOUS BROTHER LARRY PINKNEY:
Foreword to The Obama Files: Chronicles of an Award Winning War Criminal
by Larry Pinkney
Though often hidden or distorted, human history is replete with examples of courage and sacrifice by a relatively few political dissenters sounding the alarm and speaking truth to power. These dissenters are scorned and ridiculed by those who control the corporate mass media and its concomitant systemic machine of perpetual war, death, and destruction. Yet, US society in particular, and Mother Earth as a whole, are in dire need of these principled dissenters whose stories represent the very best of struggling humanity. This is the essence of Cindy Sheehan and why her actions and writings over many years are of such invaluable and enduring significance. She has repeatedly actualized the words of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., when he said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter...”
Carla L. Rueckert (McCarty) was born in 1943 in Lake Forest, Illinois. She completed undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Louisville in 1966 and master’s degree studies in Library Service in 1971. She served as librarian and bibliographer to college and school libraries for six years. She was a meditator with the group Don started in early 1962, and became partners with Don in L/L Research in 1968. In 1970, she turned full-time to assisting Don with his research. She read and abstracted books and periodicals, and did correspondence and writing for Don. In 1974, she began channeling. She continues these activities. In 1987, she married Jim McCarty. She enjoys corresponding with a wide variety of wanderers, readers and spiritual seekers of all kinds, as well as reading romances, fantasy, sci-fi and mysteries, gardening, cooking and writing. She continues her channeling efforts with non-trance Saturday meditation meetings. On behalf of L/L Research’s Metaphysical Library, she has been collecting books, tapes and other material in the areas of metaphysical and UFO research since 1970, and invites those who are disposing of metaphysically oriented materials to remember that L/L Research is glad to receive such donations. She lives with three cats, Jim, and GLB in Louisville, Kentucky.
Carla has garnered the reputation as one of the most accurate and high integrity channelers on the planet. Her 5 books of the Ra channelings have touched readers around the globe. Her work is not ordinary New Age love and light. Her Source describes itself as a group soul by the name of Ra (and Q'uo), composed of millions of individual souls who have graduated from this realm (gotten off the wheel of reincarnation) and serve as a helper and guide for planetary populations who are still experiencing 3D evolutionary patterns, helping them (those who ask) in their own "graduation" process.
Sadhguru, a yogi and profound mystic of our times, is a visionary humanitarian and a prominent spiritual leader. A contemporary Guru, rooted as strongly in mundane and pragmatic matters as he is in inner experience and wisdom, Sadhguru works tirelessly towards the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of all. His mastery of the mechanisms of life, an outcome of his profound experience of the Self, guides in exploring the subtler dimensions of life.
At home in loincloth as much as he is in blue jeans, barefoot through the mighty Himalayas, or straddling a BMW motorcycle on the expressway, Sadhguru is the most unusual mystic that one can encounter. Marking a clear departure from mere customs and rituals, Sadhguru's scientific methods for self-transformation are both direct and powerful. Belonging to no particular tradition, Sadhguru incorporates and presents what is most valid for the contemporary life from the yogic sciences.
Sadhguru speaks at some of the world's most prominent international leadership forums. In January 2007, he participated in four panels at the World Economic Forum and spoke on issues ranging from diplomacy and economic development, to education and the environment. In 2006, he addressed the World Economic Forum, the Tallberg Forum in Sweden, and the Australian Leadership Retreat. He has also served as a delegate to the United Nations Millennium Peace Summit and the World Peace Congress.
Sadhguru's vision and understanding of modern social and economic issues have led to interviews with BBC, Bloomberg, CNBC, CNNfn, and Newsweek International. His insights are regularly featured in India's leading national newspapers. A well-known public figure, he regularly draws crowds of more than 300,000 people for his public talks and "sathsangs" (group meditation).
Traversing seamlessly from the ancient to the ultramodern, Sadhguru bridges the gap between the known and the unknown, enabling all those who encounter him to explore and experience the deepest dimensions of life.
George Galloway (born 16 August 1954) is a British politician, author, journalist, and broadcaster, and the Respect Member of Parliament (MP) for Bradford West. He was previously an MP for the Labour Party, for Glasgow Hillhead and then its successor constituency Glasgow Kelvin from 1987 until 2005. He was expelled from the Labour Party in October 2003 because of his strident public opposition to the Iraq War. He subsequently became a founding member of the left-wing Respect Party, and was elected as the MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in 2005. In 2010, Galloway unsuccessfully contested the seat of Poplar and Limehouse, and in 2011 he unsuccessfully contested the Glasgow list for the Scottish Parliament, before being elected as an MP in the 2012 Bradford West by-election.
Galloway is well known for his campaigns in support of the Palestinians in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. In the late-1980s Hansard records him delivering a ferocious assault on the Ba'ath regime, and Galloway opposed Saddam's regime until the United States-led Gulf War in 1991. Galloway is known for a visit to Iraq where he met Saddam Hussein, and delivered a speech, which ended in English with the statement "Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability." He has always stated that he was addressing the Iraqi people in the speech. Galloway testified to the United States Senate in 2005 over alleged illicit payments from the United Nations' Oil for Food Programme.
Norman Shealy is one of the world's leading experts in pain management. He was the first physician to specialize in the resolution of chronic pain. A pioneer in developing safe and effective treatments such as Biogenics, he founded, in 1971, the first comprehensive pain and stress management facility in the country, The Shealy Institute, respected world-wide for its innovative and successful rehabilitation approaches. Over the years, Dr. Shealy's intensive pain and stress management research has resulted in numerous pioneering treatments. His published works total over 325. His seminars and workshops are given worldwide, and attended by physicians and lay persons alike. He has acted as consultant to leaders in every specialty, including the personal physicians of President's Kennedy and Eisenhower.
The noted English physician Dr. Francis Peabody said "The secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient." Dr. Shealy has long adhered to this philosophy. He once commented to a friend, "The most common symptom among humans is pain, but nobody seems to specialize in treatment of this symptom." From there, he went on to establish the Shealy Institute, a center for the treatment and research of chronic pain. This medical center has become world renown for its foresighted therapies and treatments. Dr. Shealy, now retired from clinical services, continues his research and teaching, and shares his concerns for patients and the medical profession alike with anyone who would enjoy his insight. Like Francis Peabody a century ago, Norm Shealy says today that "while the science of medicine is indispensable to the physician, it is the art of practicing medicine that heals the human body and soul." For over 4 decades, Norm Shealy as been at the forefront of Alternative Medicine and Alternative Health Care. In the mid-60's he introduced his major innovations for pain control ---Dorsal Column Stimulation (DCS) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, both now used world-wide. Shortly after that his emphasis broadened to include the vast field of Self-Regulation with the addition of biofeedback, autogenic training and his introduction of Biogenics ©, a major tool for stress reduction.
Then he turned his attention to Holistic Medicine, founding the American Holistic Medical Association in 1978, to include the concepts of spiritual healing and spiritual health. This led to almost 30 years of research into an emphasis on anti-aging. He discovered 5 intrinsic electrical circuits in the human body. These selectively raise DHEA, neurotensin, calcitonin, oxytocin, aldosterone or lower free radicals. Upon completion of this work, he theorized that average life should be 140 years of age. More recently he has demonstrated regrowth of telomeres, the tail of DNA. Telomeres ordinarily shrink 1% each year after birth. His work with the RejuvaMatrix is the first to demonstration rejuvenation of telomeres, a major key to anti-aging and longevity.
Overall, Norm's work has expanded the field of Energy Medicine, using electrical, electromagnetic, mental, physical and emotional tools for health enhancement. He has been president of the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine. His work with Caroline Myss let them to start the first doctoral program in Energy Medicine. In 2001, that work led to the establishment of Holos University Graduate Seminary. He was President of Holos University for its first 7 years and is now Professor Emeritus of Energy Medicine.
Throughout his career, Norm has considered Self-Health to be the foundation for all of life. He founded Self-Health Systems in 1974, to provide tools for assisting individuals in their approach to health. His first major book, 90 DAYS TO SELF-HEALTH sold 130,000 copies I n the mid-70's.
Most recently, Norm has focused on MEDICAL RENAISSANCE THE SECRET CODE, a 90 minute DVD which demonstrates the success of a comprehensive, holistic approach to almost all illnesses. In over 30,000 patients with chronic pain and depression, his success rate of 85% is unequaled. For over 20 years his weekly radio program on KWTO in Springfield has been the most popular call-in program in the Ozarks.
Norm s latest discovery is specific blends of essential oils which can effectively stimulate the circuits which enhance DHEA, oxytocin, calcitonin, and reduce free radicals. The most popular, Air BLISS is receiving rave reviews from hundreds of users. It provides detached calmness and relief from both depression and anxiety.
Through her activism and her scholarship over the last decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in our nation’s quest for social justice. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender equality.
Professor Davis’ teaching career has taken her to San Francisco State University, Mills College, and UC Berkeley. She has also taught at UCLA, Vassar, the Claremont Colleges, and Stanford University. She has spent the last fifteen years at the University of California Santa Cruz where she is Professor of History of Consciousness, an interdisciplinary Ph.D program, and Professor of Feminist Studies.
Angela Davis is the author of eight books and has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. In recent years a persistent theme of her work has been the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination. She draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies as a person who spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted List.” She has also conducted extensive research on numerous issues related to race, gender and imprisonment. Her most recent books are Abolition Democracy and Are Prisons Obsolete? She is now completing a book on Prisons and American History.
Angela Davis is a member of the executive board of the Women of Color Resource Center, a San Francisco Bay Area organization that emphasizes popular education – of and about women who live in conditions of poverty. She also works with Justice Now, which provides legal assistance to women in prison and engages in advocacy for the abolition of imprisonment as the dominant strategy for addressing social problems. Internationally, she is affiliated with Sisters Inside, a similar organization based in Queensland, Australia.
Like many other educators, Professor Davis is especially concerned with the general tendency to devote more resources and attention to the prison system than to educational institutions. Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement.
Paul Davids is a film producer, writer and director whose career began as the production coordinator (and a writer) of the original TRANSFORMERS TV show. He then co-wrote six STAR WARS sequel novels in the early 1990's and then served as co-writer and executive producer of the Showtime original feature, ROSWELL, directed by Jeremy Kagan and starring Martin Sheen, Kyle MacLachlan and Dwight Yoakam, nominated for a Golden Globe as Best TV Motion Picture of 1994.
He followed that controversial film with a number of independently produced controversial features from his company Yellow Hat Productions, Inc., all of which he produced and directed, including TIMOTHY LEARY'S DEAD, STARRY NIGHT, THE ARTIST & THE SHAMAN, THE SCI-FI BOYS (winner of both a Saturn Award for Best DVD and the Rondo Award for Best Independent Genre Film) and now JESUS IN INDIA.
He is a graduate of Princeton University and the AFI Center for Advanced Film & Television Studies, and he has been a member of Hollywood's Magic Castle for over two decades, as well as being a member of the Writers Guild of America, the Producers Guild of America and NALIP. He is also an accomplished painter who has had many shows of his oil paintings. He is married and lives in Los Angeles and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
"I suppose seeing pictures of me at 2 1/2 years old holding a guitar like I'd been playing for years, I should have known that music was my destiny."
From the age of 14, he always felt best when on stage performing at local clubs. "I'd pay the other busboys to close for me so that I could play bass in the lounge for tips."
At 18, Michael had a band in Prescott, Arizona called "Shogun." With Whitfield Mercer III on bass, and Mike Loomis on drums, they tore it up at the St. Michael's Underground as the house band for several months. Note the customized guitar and hand-built light show, or as they called it back then, "color organ."
"The old days (70s and 80s) created the best music ever. It is timeless. That's why they put it in GuitarHero, RockBand, and on half of the TV commercials."
The '80s was a big influence on Michael, and bands such as Styx, Toto, and Nightranger had a power rock sound requiring several band members. The band "SEAL" was the rock/progressive rock band of the 80s in Phoenix. It consisted of Dave Froehlich on drums, Earnie Reed on bass, Dave "Doc" Dixon on keyboards, Christine Aquilino on vocals, Russ Graves on guitar, and Michael on guitar, synths, and vocals. Christine's brother Jon Aquilino was in the Schoolboys, and IKON, which along with Surgical Steel, were the "hair metal" bands of Phoenix.
Michael started with harmonica at age 8, guitar and choir at age 9, bass at 13, drums at 14, and keyboards at 20. His mixed-use of live synthesizers with guitar adds a fullness that one is used to hearing from 5 and 6 piece bands, not trios.
"Element 115 really takes advantage of the multi-instrument talents of all its members."
In 2007 and 2008, the band was the center of attention at the Roswell UFO Festivals.
With a degree in Computer Science, and over 10 years of experience as an electrical engineer and mechanical designer, Michael always has plans for improving the wow factor of Element 115's live shows. As it is, it takes the band 4 or 5 hours to set up the full show (video wall, PA, towers, trusses, robotic lights), and 2 more hours to take it down. A Holographic AL 3.0 is in the design phase now.
"I can relate to Tom Scholz of Boston. He has had his own studio since the late '60s, plays all the instruments, and writes melodic parts which still rock! I wish I could play the Hammond organ as well as he does."
If you haven't seen Michael or Jess play guitar with one hand, and keyboard with the other, then be sure to check out "Hot Cars" in the video section of the web site.
"People often ask why I created an ALIEN drummer. I just wanted to take diversity to another level. Aliens would love to jam on some good ol' rock 'n roll if it weren't for the MIB's busting their chops!"
There is a more serious side to the alien connection with Michael, however.
"Having been 'abducted' in my own house by five really tall slightly large-eyed aliens, I know first hand that our government is covering up the truth when it comes to alien life here on Earth. I was not hurt or probed (to the best of my recollection) but they did let me know how much they appreciated my sense of humor. All communication was telepathic, and to this day I have conflicting sources as to why I was visited, Carla was numbed, and I was allowed to remember some part of the event.
"I've known from as young as I can remember, and telling my little brother when he was about 3 and I was 7 or 8, that I wasn't from this planet. I remember wanting to tell everybody, but confiding only to my brother. I drew pictures of the world and its moon (which became the new world). I feel that I've been visited from the time I was younger than 2, and I displayed an acute ability to apply logic and mathematics even back then."
The band's music often includes a view on a song's topic from an alien perspective. Element 115 focuses on not only presenting a situation or question, but also on providing potential solutions.
Michael's musical influences include Boston, Def Leppard, the Monkees, Van Halen, the Doobie Brothers, Yes, Aerosmith, Steelheart, Stryper, the writer of Greensleeves, and all the classical music used in Warner Brothers cartoons. His stage show influences include KISS, the Tubes, Pink Floyd, and Queen.

Walter J. Burien, Jr. - Birth name: Bubien (born at Our Lady of Lords hospital, Camden, NJ October 12, 1955, is an advocate for government fiscal accountability and budgeting.
At the age of five he moved from Camden, NJ with his family to Needham, Massachusetts where a trip to Boston or camping on the Cape was just a short drive away. At the age of nine years old Walter moved with his family to East Brunswick, NJ and in 1974 Walter graduated East Brunswick High School.
On August 14 1974, Walter and 83 of his friends from East Brunswick and Spotswood, NJ enlisted in the military. Walter with four others went into the Navy, five went into the Air Force, eight into the Army and the rest into the Marines. Walter went to boot camp at Great Lakes where he won the heavyweight boxing title at the "Smoker" that year. From boot camp Walter completed Machinist Mate A School and went forward to Nuclear Power School in Bainbridge, Maryland. Walter upon arriving at Nuclear Power School found out that he was not qualified to participate. His recruiter entered him into the program even though not qualified for it.
Walter put in for an early discharge from the Navy, and as he awaited the discharge to process, he moved on as a standard MM3c to his first duty ship the DD862 Vogelgesang (a destroyer) and then to his second duty ship the FF1084 McCandless (a Fast Frigate). In 1976 Walter received a congressional appointment to the United States Naval Academy from congressman Frank Tompkins of PA, went through the preliminary testing, was approved for the next starting class at Annapolis but he decided not to go and took an early discharge in 1976.
In 1977 Walter worked for XEROX Corp out of the Princeton, New Jersey branch for one year and, in 1978, switched over to working in the commodity markets from New York City with an office at 1 World Trade Center. Walter Burien learned quickly that he had a knack for seeing what was going to happen based on what was happening. This talent can be very profitable in commodity futures trading. Walter found out quickly that he was not good at sales but very good at trading. He and a friend opened a trading account with $1,200 having the intent of generating the money to open up their own commodity trading firm. Well, in a little over three weeks Walter had taken that $1,200 up to a little over $53,000. Walter and his friend Roy pulled $35,000 out of the trading account and started Gabriel Brokerage (named after Arch Angel Gabriel) having an office on the 19th floor of 1 World Trade Center. The first four clients of the firm were other brokers who gave Walter $10,000 each saying "Please trade my account".
Well, Walter did trade their accounts, and made all four of them a 100% profit in their first month and 100% in commissions for himself. Roy was doing a few things illegal per tax shelters Walter did not like and Walter asked Roy to stop. Roy said no, so Walter said to Roy Spiegal: Do you have one dollar ($1), Roy said yes, Walter took the $1 and said to Roy: You now have 100% of the company with payment to me of $1, goodbye. Roy went on to raise 74 million dollars, and got burnt losing most of his money when silver collapsed from $50 to $14 over three weeks in 1980. His federal license was suspended in the USA and he moved to Germany to trade on the US markets and in 1984 he was suspended again from trading on US markets due to options fraud he was involved in.
Walter, after leaving the partnership with Roy in 1978, then started his own company called Anthony's Exchange Inc. that he registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which he shortened to AEI Commodities in 1979.
Walter Bubien from that point would trade for one to three clients at a time. The best record was accomplished for a Bill Monahan a lumber broker from Portland, Oregon. Walter took over trading Mr. Monahan's account having a balance of $1,600 and in three months fourteen days he brought the account up to $387,000 with over 3,400 commodities futures contracts traded in that account over that time period. The performance here was one of the best in the country for capital appreciation in the shortest period of time.
The Commodity Futures market at the end of the 70's had much fraud taking place. At one point in 1979 Walter Burien was offered to work for a firm located at 100 Wall St. This firm was a boiler room operation that was a criminal enterprise for theft. Walter was told he could use any fictitious name he wanted, he would get 60% of the cash he brought in, and the average weekly take was $15,000 to $40,000. What they were doing was using high pressure sales pitches to sell worthless commodity options for gold, silver, and other commodities where they would play on the marks greed, get the cash, and give in return a worthless but official looking piece of paper stating that the person had an option to buy when nothing backed the option. This was outright fraud. The only reaction / response this had on Walter was that he was motivated to contact Don Hewitt of 60-Minutes and briefed him on these boiler room thieves . Mr. Hewitt then did a 60-Minute segment on commodity boiler room operations of which was the first national exposure of this type of fraud. Walter contacted Mr. Hewitt of 60-Minutes several years later on another topic (A billion dollar International investment swindle operating out of NJ and PA) and motivated him to do another 60-Minute segment "Out of Ghana".
Walter became involved providing an international daily commodity commentary with a group called Radio Data Systems - Market Monitor that gave live market and new quotes worldwide via satellite dish service. In 1981 Walter worked for nine months with Merrill Lynch when they opened their first all commodities office located in Morristown, NJ. Merrill Lynch upper management did not want Bubien to continue giving commentary under his name through Market Monitor, so Walter left Merrill Lynch and continued to work independently under AEI Commodities until 1992 when he dropped his Federal Registration as a CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor).
In 1983 Walter Bubien moved to Marco Island, Florida until 1984. During this time he also registered as a CTA under Futures Exchange Corp. along with AEI Commodities.
In 1986 Walter Bubien started a first of its kind market telephone hot-line called Preferred Traders and Brokers (PTB). The service was an interactive hot-line that gave the updated daily commentary of the top twenty-five stock, commodity, and option traders established through open competition. No one could pay to give commentary on the service they could only do so if they maintained the best performance through open competition. What this did is pooled all of the correct thinkers together through one hot-line service. The technical aspects of the service were offered through a new start-off company called Quest Communications founded by Bill VonMiester of Mclean, VA. The new service of PTB was well received. Commodities Magazine in the July 1986 issue did a feature article on PTB. PTB was scheduled to go on Ted Koppel's Nightline but it never happened. Without getting any advance notice from Bill VonMiester, VonMiester declared bankruptcy of Quest Communications and shut down the telecommunications provider to PTB. There was no other telecommunications service that could offer the technical capabilities to facilitate PTB so the hot-line of PTB was discontinued.
'''The crusade begins'''
From 1984 until 1989 Walter Bubien lived in North Hollywood, CA and returned to East Brunswick, NJ in 1989. In 1990, while in NJ, a Governor was elected by the name of Jim Florio on a no new taxes platform. What happened was upon Jim Florio becoming governor, a 2.8 billion dollar tax increase was enacted, the largest one year increase in the state's history. A NJ radio station 101.5 FM with two DJs John and Ken started lighting up the airwaves over this 2.8 billion dollar increase from a governor whose motto to get elected was "No New Taxes". Walter having a background with large numbers, pulled out the NJ State budget report and read on the air the billions of dollars the state was dealing with as shown on their own budget report. The DJs John and Ken from 101.5 FM challenged the listeners to start a group to repeal the tax increase. Walter Bubien and nine others got together and Walter incorporated with the state of NJ a group called Hands Across New Jersey (HANJ).
With the help of John and Ken rabble rousing around the clock, within three months the group had 63,000 volunteers and every county in New Jersey organized. Walter Bubien took over looking at the Budget report, gross income, and identifying the investments held by the state of NJ. It was not too long before he discovered the true accounting book for NJ State Government, a book called the CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report). Upon review this report showed that New Jersey state government had three times the gross income that it was showing on its corresponding budget report. Mr. Walter J. Bubien, Jr. upon seeing the NJ CAFR had just learned what he has called ever since: The Biggest Game in Town and he has referred to government ever since as the definition of Organized Crime. When Walter met with governor Jim Florio, when he confronted the governor with the fact that the state was bringing in three times what they were showing to the people of NJ, the governor replied back with: "Yes, I know, I have been trying to do something about that!"
Walter, the day after getting the NJ State CAFR, went to 101.5 and showed it to John and Ken now DJs in Los Angeles, CA saying to them: "Here is the holy Grail" let's hit the air with it!" Well, for the next hour the bottom line numbers in the tens of billions were read off live on the air.. That was the last live interview 101.5 FM did with Walter or for a while with anyone from HANJ. The station came under attack, John and Ken never mentioned the CAFR again, Walter Burien came under attack, all Press articles on HANJ for some period of time stopped. Walter and his friends were threatened and the CAFR was never to be heard about again for the next eight years.
Walter, out of concern of continued reprisal for what he had brought forward, changed one letter of his name from Bubien to Burien and moved to Prescott, Arizona to start a small business, get married, and raise a family. From the end of 1990 until 1994, Walter J. Burien, Jr. stayed off the grid and did fine running a small business.
Then, in 1994 Walter had a press release on a new US Patent #5638433 he had filed that was the first telecommunications router that could bounce calls as data calls through the Internet and could group all subscribers to the service as one account for massive volume discounts on their calls. In doing so he let everyone know where he was. This was a big mistake on his part. Some money as payoffs flowed into some pockets of local officials in Prescott, AZ through real-estate land / tax-repo property in the Prescott area marked up to equal the payoff amount, paid from NJ (via transfer from Chicago) with the instructions to "xxxx' up Walter's world.. The "xxxx" Walter's world was done through the local courts and there were eager players from within other government circles to do the job with a little cash changing hands from NJ to AZ masked through these real estate transaction..
From 1994 to 1998, Walter Burien was totally entrenched in trying to protect his new born child Allyson born Dec 6, 1995, business, and future from constant and pervasive undercurrents of attack and intended negative consequences being intentionally inflicted. Search the CAFR1.com site for key words such as "Political Pandering" or "Custodial interference" or "Judicial Misconduct" for further information. In June 1998, Walter Burien had enough of the corrupt and eager politicians, attorneys that slithered through the halls of government, and corrupted law enforcement who were paid well but in many cases were only strong arm forces to the inherently corrupted who gave them their instructions. Walter knew that the majority of problems the nation was facing was due to the money involved that was changing hands and the corruption that unrestrained money flow bred. The CAFR showed that wealth and the reality of the money involved. So on June 4th 1998 Walter Burien went to war, with that war being a national war of disclosure via radio of the CAFR and the hidden wealth structure behind it. The first radio program was with Tom Valentine, Radio Free America and over the next four months Walter did about 130 other radio shows that reached far and wide across the nation. The national disclosure had begun.
Walter Burien started the web site of http://CAFR1.com whereby he lists some local government CAFRs for download, and has written many articles on the topic http://CAFR1.com/STATES/ and directs viewers to some example surplus reviews of CAFRs completed by Gerald Klatt a retired federal commander of auditing (Deceased July 11th 2004) who was briefed by Mr. Burien in 1999 and shortly thereafter launched his website CAFRMan.com
Mr. Burien has written many articles about the CAFR and undercurrents therefrom. In January 2000 Walter Burien released on Video VHS a tape entitled The Biggest Game in Town, a video that circulated for viewing across the country in a very short time.
On December 25, 2008, the video The Biggest Game in Town was uploaded to Google Video for the first time and broke all records on Google Video in that class of video getting over 870,000 views in the first five days from release. As of December 2008 the video had been viewed over five million time worldwide.
From June 1998 until June 2009, Walter Burien has worked diligently to inform the people of the CAFR and has completed over 550 radio shows, has had features articles on the front pages of several private publications, such as WorldNet Daily; Spotlight; Media Bypass; Idaho Observer, and has expanded the hits on the Google search engine to where a search for the two basic key words of: Government Wealth will yield 58,000,000 hits with the CAFR1.com website being #1 and The video the Biggest Game in Town, being also. The same will result for a Google search of: CAFR, or: Government Investments. The blackout though from the syndicated media, controlled education, and both primary political parties continues and is diligently enforced due to the symbiotic relationship for the use of the massive wealth / investment capital involved within the structure of the CAFR. They do what they do due to the money and control involved. Nothing more and nothing less..
Collective government in the USA owns and controls more than any of us knew. Collective totals of investment, gross income, and standing wealth local and Federal government secures, holds, and generates each year is substantially greater than the same from the entire private sector in the USA. Or in other words as Mr. Burien puts it: Russia's (communism's) wet dream of the 1940s per control and ownership held by government with a capitalist / fascist twist. The big earth shaker was that two-thirds of government's gross income was from non-tax sources. Collective standing investment totals held "internationally" from all local and federal government entities in the USA as of 1999 of "liquid" investment assets conservatively as of 1999 exceeded 60 trillion dollars and as of 2010 within its continued growth over 100 trillion dollars has been reached. Did the public or most government employees know this? No, they did not. What about most in the financial arena? No also.. They were not intended to have a cognitive thought on this issue and great efforts were exerted by the control structure to maintain an intentional void and vacuum in the thought processes of the general population not to even think about the issue and specific data was spoon fed the viewers creating a limited view as was intended..
In November 2008, Mr. Burien launched another site designed to offer remedy whereby the collective ownership amassed by government would revert back to the direct benefit of the people through the phasing out of all taxation. The site is called - http://TaxRetirement.com or the TRFA having the registered US Trademark of (Tax Retirement Fund Association) designed to implement the TFR (Tax Retirement Fund) within local venues from across the country through the use of a Four Point Initiative designed to do the job after modification to fit any venue of not lowering but eliminating "all" taxation in this country. Government in its own zeal to take it all over by investment has created the structure necessary to make the TRFs happen tomorrow if the TRF is exerted to happen today. The crusade continues...
Walter Burien since 2002 has primarily lived about fourteen miles outside the city of Saint Johns, AZ by himself and with his faithful pups who are the descendents (as of 2010 nine pups) of his seventeen year old dog Beasty Beast that can be seen in the picture at the bottom of the CAFR1 front page.
In 1998 Walter filed for a new US Patent for the MAC Cell Phone (Published January 2010, issued 02/07/2012) which has the potential to revolutionize the telecom industry. Possibly even Apple's I-Phone sales and service offered will be dwarfed when and if the MAC Cell phone (US Trademark Pending) is brought forward and reaches the market place. (One device that does it all for every other digital device in the home; office; or out in the field, using "any" technology or "any" service provider worldwide) A utility patent is pending for the invention and issue is expected in 2012-13. Domestic and International manufacturing / service rights can be assigned at this time. Funding / investment to move this invention forward is being sought.
As of 2012 Mr. Burien is looking for a qualified ghost writer to to collaborate in completion of a book entitled:
The Money and motive behind the decades of our masterful entertainment and how a Real Change can make the population the "First-Line-Beneficiary" of the wealth involved.

Gary Starr, ZAP Founder, Chairman Emeritus, Manager, Business Development, Product Development
Gary Starr is quite possibly the most prolific electric car entrepreneur today, having been involved in the design and production of over 100,000 electric vehicles since building his first electric car in 1974 as a UC Davis sophomore. In 1993 Automotive News named Starr among the top ten authorities in the electric car industry.
In 2000 Advertising Age honored him and ZAP in their annual Marketing 100. Starr has several publications to his credit, including "Electric Cars: Your Guide to Clean Motoring, "The Shocking Truth of Electric Cars," and "The True Cost of Oil."
He is a holder of several electric vehicle patents. Starr was a sophomore at UC Davis studying Environmental Consulting and Advocacy during the OPEC Oil Embargo and says he was late for a date because he had to sit in a line to buy gas. While waiting he pondered a better way using electricity. He asked one of his professors about electric cars who told him they could not go fast enough, far enough and were too expensive. A few months later, Starr built his first electric car with mostly junk and surplus parts. The converted dune buggy went 50 MPH, had a range per charge of 50 miles and cost about $2,500 to make. "That car taught me that, just because an expert says it can't be done, doesn't mean it's true."
Starr founded ZAP in 1994 and has been a director since the Company's inception, serving as Chief Executive Officer from 2000 to 2002 and Chairman from 2002 to 2008. Prior to ZAP, Starr founded US Electricar's electric vehicle operation in 1983. Starr has provided expert commentary on more than 300 radio and television shows including Larry King Live, The Today Show, CNN Headline News, the McNeil Lehrer News Hour and more.
Living Foods USA thus came into existence in 2004 as a part of the natural movement in our spiritual-scientific journey that is centered on promoting, inspiring, and empowering the spiritual evolution of humanity as it seeks its full potential. And a couple years later we saw the need for the gluten/nut free version of Prime Directive™ thus named, FermPlus™ for all those with gluten intolerance and celiac disease, as well as, raw foodists that choose to stay away from gluten bearing grains. We found a way to make Prime Directive™ even more fulfilling for all. We see this living food matrix of FermPlus™ as a blessing from Spirit working in Nature to help bring our bio-systems back into harmony with the greater dynamic milieu of which we are a part. The multi-dimensional nature of this milieu presents itself to us in the form of interpenetrating realms of life where the subtle and material may intersect. It is at the nexus of the spiritual and the material that we can see the fruitful interface of higher consciousness with that which needs to be awakened in our human biological nature. We believe FermPlus™ is a remarkably unique gift for re-harmonizing our multi-faceted nature. How marvelous to see and feel God's intelligence at work in these very intelligent bacteria that fulfill their purpose while helping us fulfill ours. For this reason we understand this food to be a conscious evolving living matrix, one that is truly "Conscious Food for Conscious Beings."
It is natural to ask what talents, gifts, and knowledge we bring to Living Foods that might qualify us for the task of bringing this gift to the American market. Together we have many years in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM): Marianne, a practitioner since 1991 in Acupressure Massage Therapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu, and Inner Relationship Focusing, counselor and instructor, and Bruce teaching on spirituality, consciousness sciences, and the future of medicine since 1979. This diverse background in the healing arts, spiritual teaching, and active participation in the many communities of discourse engaging the Science and Spirituality dialogue, enables us to bring unique insights and understanding of the importance of uniting scientific rigor with spiritual insight. This interface was further developed over 20 years serving as the editorial office for the prestigious peer-reviewed Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine: Research on Practice, Paradigm and Policy (JACM). In that capacity, with Marianne as Managing Editor and Bruce as Associate Editor, we became acquainted with many of the brightest minds in research and practice in CAM. Further, we were able to explore the forefront of much new research, including nutritional studies. This helped us develop a rigorous approach to science and sharpened our ability to evaluate health claims, including stated benefits of various products. Our work culminated in a pioneering edition of JACM on "Energy Medicine" published 2004, in which Bruce also presented an article entitled Consciousness and Quantum Information Processing: Uncovering the Foundation for a Medicine of Light (go to Liebertpub.com/acm — Vol. 10/1, Feb. 2004). It is this discerning eye and heart that we bring to Living Foods USA.
We are grateful for the opportunity to bring you products sourced from organic foods, that are the closest to Nature and the way God designed us to heal and regenerate. We observed the research on our Living Foods Matrix™ Re-Natured® vitamins and minerals in those days with JACM and now we are proud to make them available to you. They, too, are sourced from organics, vitamins and minerals seen as food in the body for 90% absorption! It is to you as conscious, evolving Beings, growing in God's garden, that we offer these Living Foods.
And it doesn’t stop there. We now have a full website dedicated to Living Water. Thanks to the good work and invention of Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi we can now have active hydrogen-rich water available for our health and vitality anytime, anywhere. Water that is truly hydrating, our best antioxidant, our best source of energy.
Soon we will be bringing to you Living Water for your multidimensional being, your spiritual essence and soul.
“Whoever believes in me…streams of living water will flow from within him.” John 7:37-39.
Our new radio program, Truth and Freedom, launched in New York City, May 29, 2009 can be heard at https://prn.fm/ live Fridays at 3pm eastern time, or hear the archives anytime for 12 weeks after each show. We will bring you topics on everything from health freedom, health and vitality, politics, consciousness and spirituality. Because, “and you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.” John 8:32. For those of you who wish to be awake and free in your Spiritual Sovereignty we hope you will be enlightened!
Wishing you the Joy of abundant health and unending growth in Knowledge and Wisdom,
Bruce and Marianne Curtis
Richard “Anton” Diaz, born in New York City, raised in Stamford, Connecticut, entered his 1st year in college as a scholarship student at Fairfield University as a math and science major training toward becoming a mechanical engineer. His focus shifted, however, to the studies in human thought, and he began to study philosophy and psychology. It was during these studies that he began to embrace the Tao as his personal philosophy.
The following year,
Anton transferred to Antioch College, then, one the most progressive liberal colleges in America founded by Horace Mann. His interests shifted once again, this time to the arts and he began pursuing a career in Music and Dance. After graduating Antioch, he embarked upon a professional dance career that would last 20 years. As a professional competitive ballroom dancer he won a World title in 1989 and afterwards twice represented the United States in world championships. During his training as a dancer he was highly impacted be the Alexander Technique where he began to appreciate the delicate connection between mind and body.
In 1992, he met Master Mantak Chia, and began to deepen his studies in Taoism, and for the first time, was introduced to Taoist sexual cultivation practices. In 1997, he retired from dancing and began teaching Taoist practices full time. In 1999, he founded Sexy Spirits in New York City, as an educational center where sexuality and spirituality could be taught as an integrated part of our human nature.
Today, Sexy Spirits continues as an educational center with classes, lectures, and workshops, both live and online, that are taught in the United States. Richard “Anton” Diaz, is currently authoring 2 books, and teaching courses and trainings he has created. They include: Tantra Tango, Mastering Your Orgasm, Taontric Massage, and Orgasmic Providers.
In 1999, I had just completed my associate instructor training in the Healing Tao practices under Master Mantak Chia, and decided to create a learning center in New York City that would offer a practical and systematic method of integrating health, sex, and longevity through the Taoists principles that I had learned and began to apply in my life. I was especially enthusiastic about teaching men the sexual cultivation practices that had changed my life. What I had learned had not only increased by state of personal health and well being but also greatly enhanced my understanding and ability in my relationships with the women in my life. You might say I was no longer a slave to my sexual drives but now the master of them. My new way of understanding and experiencing my sexual energy gave me an insight in understanding how love, passion, and sex, could now work together in creating harmonious relationships as well as strong loving community.
Here now nearly 13 years later, Sexy Spirits is become a major community builder and educational center for learning intimacy and sexuality as a conscious practice in one’s life. The Healing Tao practices that were the catalyst for creating Sexy Spirits, are still taught and even recommended as a strong foundation, but now Sexy Spirits has become an online university offering a diversity of subjects ranging from Tantra to BDSM, from practices in Self-Love to building conscious intimate community, from becoming master givers and receivers of sensual pleasure to spiritual freedom and liberation.
My dreams for Sexy Spirits are a world wide system in building conscious community that better supports our relationships for family and intimacy with others. It goes without saying that a good relationship better supports and nourishes each of the individuals within that relationship. But likewise, a good community better supports and nourishes each of the individuals and partners within that community. Sexy Spirits offers a model in creating those communities where ever you live on this planet.
Sexual energy is perhaps the most powerful driving force in our lives. Our sexual energy can provide us with more health, happiness, and well being but can also be our greatest source of distraction, frustration, and confusion. Through sex we can easily create new life or just as easily upset or destroy existing ones. Understanding and mastering our sexual energy will greatly determine whether or not we create the life we desire.
Our sex drive is motivated by two strong and not necessarily dependent urges; the urge to create children and have family, and the urge to experience sexual energy as pleasure. It would seem that mother nature for some reason provided us with far more sexual energy than was actually required to continue our species.
Our current culture partakes in sexual energy far more for the experience of pleasure than it does for making babies. This is actually a better survival choice for our species over-populated would be a great threat to our survival potential. As we learn more and more how to economically populate and successfully prolong life on this planet, the necessity to understand our use of sexual energy as pleasure becomes critical. Even the celebate must manage their sexual drives.
Though current western society on the whole has given great latitude for sexual expression as a function of pleasure independent of procreation, western religious ideologies, since their very inception, have pretty much continued to disassociate sexual energy with spiritual development. In contrast, early eastern religions, the major ones being Taoism that originated in China and Tantra in India, embraced the cultivation and integration of sexual energy as vital to spiritual growth. Unfortunately, these teachings have not so easily been accepted and/or appreciated by the western mind. Teachings in Tantra's goddess oriented philosophy have appealed much more easily to the "feminine" intellect while teachings in the monk oriented Taoist approach with it's pragmatic, logical, and often times clinical presentation to the "masculine".
But what if these teachings could be presented to the western mind in such a way that would be instructive, illuminating, and equally appealing to men and woman alike? What if we could come to our own understanding of sexual energy cultivation that would allow us to honor our sexual urges. What if we could consciously cultivate our sexual energy into a regular practice, as we currently do with diet and exercise, that would increase our physical, mental, and emotional well-being?
Well this is my mission with Sexy Spirits! To empower men and women to cultivate and refine their sexual energy in a way that will encourage and support healthy bodies, clear minds, and harmonious relationships. I invite you to begin by first embracing the Sexy Spirit that lives in every cell of your body. That sexy spirit is YOU and was born the very instant your father’s seed found home in your mother’s womb.
