Moment of Clarity
Thanks for the timely answer!
You inadvertently hit the nail squarely on the head. If it does get released at some point, it most likely won’t be made public by your government. It may not necessarily have passed through the MKUltra program either.
Be careful with your jokes! If they sound too absurd, they might actually come to life retroactively. ;-|
I don’t remember the exact context, but I believe it was a joke. There is no evidence that I know of that MKULTRA harmed a set of twins to see the results.
Dear Lee, this is important!
In Government Secrets episode 94 you mentioned an MKUltra “experiment” in which they took twins and let one of’em drown, checking if the other could tell. Was that only a joke or can you point me to some place where they describe it?
Thank you very much!
Lee, you probably know this already. But censorship has gotten worse ever since R.T. America has been banned internationally. Which shows many governments are puppets for these very wealthy imperialists who kleptocratically make our world burn while making many people subordinated. It shows anti-intellectualism, totalitarianism, and Orwellian online surveillance increasing internationally. Though, I will say R.T. America was simping to Russia and China’s oligarchs. Russia and China have anti-L.G.B.T. laws including draconian censorship meaning no free press for investigative journalists who care about freethought. Bill Hicks said all governments are liars and murderers. He was right. All countries are complicit in dividing, conquering, financially supporting sweatshops, Orwellian online surveillance, censorship, and letting these very wealthy kleptocrats make our world burn with misery. Sweatshops from developing nations are causing impoverished females to be involved in sex trafficking for making ends meet. So, these wealthy imperialists have created systemic misogyny in developing nations that have puppet rulers. So, these countries are not controlled by people who care about human rights nor compassion. Because it’s all about money, power, control, and greed from corrupt people controlling those countries. If they truly cared about compassion and human rights, then corrupt countries would not exist.
Dear friends, Scott Ritter unfortunately got his Twitter account suspended. I think Elon Musk as Twitter major shareholder will not make any difference at all about free speech.
Nonetheless, I think you guys should check on him if it was just his account suspended. I’m afraid he may be arrested for undermining the US-UK fourth reich empire narrative. You guys are living in a historical time to write true journalism about Ukraine and the unfolding events it will lead to the rest of the world.
Love your work and can’t wait to see you live someday. Hopefully you’ll pass through Cincinnati at some point. I miss RT, but glad to nie be on your mailing list and keeping up to date with your schedule way now. I was wondering if you had a presence on Telegram? Would love to see a channel for you there. It’s a great censorship free alternative to twitter and facebook/meta. Anyway, keep up the great work. It’s great to have your voice of reason in an otherwise indoctrinated hemisphere.
So was your show cancelled off of RT with the shutdown of the RT America channel and PortableTV?
It’s punitive to censor RT, and another symptom of totalitarianism. Ya guys and GALS ought to get together and see if maybe there’s a possibility to contract with DemocracyNow! I like DN, been watching it since high school, but it can use fresh energy that Rad Indie can offer. What I would like to see is the old show Redacted with new guests, especially underrepresented peoples. What I appreciate is the cleanness (yes!) that unfortunately a PresZ would not have afforded as a comic. What can be improved—less cussing!
Dear Lee and friends,
I am appalled that the technocratic plutocrats have censored your material, having removed “Moment of Clarity” from Spotify, and cancelled “Redacted Tonight.” You are one of of the primary sources I refer to for ethical, sincere, principled, and independent news (or “news” (see: next sentence)). And as Graham Ellwood has pointed out on “Government Secrets”, it is quite revealing that comedians are serving as journalists at all. It speaks to this period of reductionistic, either-or, algorithm-entertainment capitalist spectacle in which we live. It is beyond disturbing that, essentially, Entertainment Tonight quality “journalists” (of course they are not actual journalists), who have no integrity (or no thinking capacity to understand the level of their having sold out), effortlessly broadcast their propaganda in a centralized manner, while anyone with a modicum of critical thought is blacklisted or socially disappeared. Postmodern totalitarianism (in the vein of Fredric Jameson) is clearly playing itself out in every sector of capitalist society.
OK, this comment is all over the place (for the record, I am in the throes of Covid (and, yes, I am vaccinated/boosted, yet also opposed to vaccine mandates and digital passports…ugh, this world, honestly)), but the injustice of your having been de-platformed has scrambled my brain. I wish that the population understood that censorship, when pushed to its extreme, only serves the status quo, over and above the people. Every single colleague (university faculty) I have seen expelled from academia has been anti-capitalist. Most liberals (counter-revolutionaries) do not seem to understand that they are advocated their own destruction, due to all of their manners of reformism.
We live in a world where the google (or microsoft) dictionary is underlining “reformism” and “reductionistic” in a truly ironic manner, effectuating a reductionistic reform of our language, and thus thought.
Long, scattered story short: there are throngs of people who listen to your words, people who, out of principle, never “like”, “thumbs up”, or engage with the capitalist metrics, yet who are engaged with a larger conversation (in thought and conversation) via your passionate work. OK, I better get out of this incoherent Corona fever dream before I lose all connection to linguistic sensibility.
Solidarity, Lee! Justice will prevail, somehow. Here’s hoping that the Dialectic sublates Beauty, Truth, and the Good in a future anterior that always has Derrida looking his sexiest on every book cover.
Always a fan of yours. Just watched your review of Don’t Look Up. What we need now is more awareness of the fact that we are in a Cuban Missile Crisis 2.0. The US has gobbled up much of the former Soviet Union, and has nuclear capability to launch missiles 5-10 minutes from Moscow——–and hardly anybody is talking about it. The US and Russia just had failed talks in Geneva, where Russia is telling the US “look, you are planning a war on us, we know you know, and you need to pull back. Now! ” This is basically what JFK said to Khrushchev in 1962, and we came a hairs width from nuclear war, seriously. Please start raising this issue with your viewers. Back then, there were a lot of movies about the danger of nuclear war. Dr. Strangelove, Teenage Caveman, On the Beach, and later in the 1980’s The Day After. Now…nothing.
I’m an aspiring author. I was censored by Youtube, as my videos started getting 0 views overnight. For reasons (that ultimately prevent me from getting my book to the general reader) do I not publish the following ways:
– Amazon. Neither do I promote my book myself on social media
– POD services or promotion/review services
By having other people promote my book on social media, I could build myself an author’s platform.
I’ve written my book (psychology non-fiction) to make people understand what it is that makes them suffer, and how they can change that. Maybe you are interested in that.
I’m just asking this as a favour, because I currently do not have the resources or audience to give you anything of value in return.
If you do consider me, then I will send you a free copy of my book.
I think you guys should be a little bit more organized. How about establishing your own “network”, ie. linking partner content and creating a common subscription shared among partners and distributed according to accesses/specific metrics? That way you could try to migrate away from those platforms and actually start to *own* your own business. Also, translated audio would be great. Most of the more ignorant folks aren’t speaking foreign languages. Would be a good way to work against wrong solidarity in other countries.
I’ll keep this short…There is a good chance that most Americans have been identified automatically as U.S. citizens and we have never questioned it. Now I am questioning it. Base on court opinion it appears that there are state citizens and federal citizens in this country. If we go along with being identified as federal citizens we place ourselves under their jurisdiction. If we rebuff this presumption and declare ourselves state citizens we place ourselves under another jurisdiction. Our birthright status is that of state national/citizen and federal citizen is optional.
here are few supporting cases:
“We have in our political system a government of the United States and a government of each of the several States. Each one of these governments is distinct from the others, and each has citizens of it’s own…” United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 (1875)
“Both before and after the Fourteenth Amendment to the federal Constitution, it has not been necessary for a person to be a citizen of the United States in order to be a citizen of his state.” Citing U.S. v. Cruikshank, supra.
Supreme Court: Jones v. Temmer, 89 F. Supp 1226:
“The privileges and immunities clause of the 14th Amendment protects very few rights because it neither incorporates the Bill of Rights, nor protects all rights of individual citizens. Instead this provision protects only those rights peculiar to being a citizen of the federal government; it does not protect those rights which relate to state citizenship.”
“The governments of the United States and of each state of the several states are distinct from one another. The rights of a citizen under one may be quite different from those which he has under the other”.
Colgate v. Harvey, 296 U.S. 404; 56 S.Ct. 252 (1935)
“rights of national citizenship as distinct from the fundamental or natural rights inherent in state citizenship”.
Madden v. Kentucky, 309 U.S. 83: 84 L.Ed. 590 (1940)

My name is Lance Freeman, and I have written a one man show, entitled,
A SPIRIT ON PAROLE (an evening with Lenny Bruce). Would you be
interested in such a piece ?
My good friend and mentor was the Pulitzer prize winning playwright and
EXORCIST star, Jason Miller. And I have also written material for Bill Maher.
This particular work can be performed on stage, film, and in comedy clubs
nationwide… Drop me line, and let me know what you think.
Harvard! Good news: Finally gives a diploma to Zuckerberg ! Bad news : Games of Thrones is given as much attention as (Real) History. ExistentiaL QuestionS: What is History thought at harvard ( and by extension at Universities ) really worth? Virtually he’s’worth billions , but what is Zuckerberg really worth? What is Harvard really worth? Next course at Yale: Kanye West summer class, his Afro-American upbringing & Family Tree?
I was just at your show in NewYork. You and the team killed it! It was such an honor to meet you and the team. Lee I trust your judgement and I and I’m sure many of your viewers are interested in your coverage on the Seth Rich story. Keep up the good work!
ok, it is still some years ago (2008), but i just saw your video from youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srHpjDL6-ZM, but the propaganda from fox is still acutal. A festival of ignorance… you hit the nail! We need more people like, go on,
greetings from germany,
Thanks. Unlike most of the other shows out there, I write all my own stuff. I could never manage a daily show. But I appreciate the thought.
been following yer stuff for a while. we need to get you doing a daily news show for everyone’s sake as well as my sanity.
Beautiful: Cosby’s “rape” cases have become “emotional-distress” charges…and Bill has (been) turned into a pro-eductation & feminist activist all of a sudden. Political Correctness Advocates are getting away with murder & deception, no sorry now let us call it : “rock & roll”
… A “Cruise” Missile? No! Wait a “MinuteMan III” ? And “3 minutes Man” !
Hey Nikki! I love your enthusiasm! Yes, I know Seattle is indeed winning the vote. The reason I haven’t scheduled it yet is because I was actually there not long ago! John O’Donnell and I did a show in late November. I usually don’t come back to a town more than once a year. But I have begun looking for a good venue to return to Seattle. Thanks Nikki!
Greetings from Seattle. Seeing as Seattle is at the top of the “We want Lee Camp list,” why no scheduled visit? Moreover, several cities submitting votes, such as Fall City, WA, Everett, WA, and Olympia, WA, are city-suburbs of Seattle — thus MORE Seattle votes. One dude forgot the “e” at the end of Seattle, thereby inventing a new WA city, but we know what he meant, so add another. This puts Seattle pretty much well above 80 votes as of 4.22.17 (and counting), so what’s holding up a visit, Lee? Seattle has long been known as the hot bed of American radicalism and historically called the, “little Soviet of the west.” — a century of progressive thinkers and action. See why we can’t wait ’till ya get here? (Check out the book, “The Centraiia Conspiracy” for historical starters. And no slow-down here since that book was written.) Anyway, don’t wait another minute for a visit and e-mail us as soon as possible. Thanks a bunch, Lee, in a time of much needed humor ala your variety.
What’s Up Lee Camp, you bad ass. Had to pause Redacted to come over and sign up as a monthly member supporting the cause. For a comedian, you’ve got some pretty good journalistic chops. Keep up the great work my friend.
Hi. Long time supporter, first time enabling redactivistism… Did u spot Steven Pifer, Bookings Institution Arms Control & Non Proliferation Initiative(the Thought Police) Director, on C-SPAN2 today? In the Q & A portion, within the context of the Center For the National Interest panel conveined to adress “Russian Foreign Policy”, he answered the following question: what does ‘Russia’ want with Europe? His answer: to call it a belligerent. Belligerent?! As in what history refers to as the participants of any REAL war. A WAR has real soldiers and real loss of life. A war, also, has a real, unadulterated reason(s), or set of ideas, enacted which LITERALLY led to the forming of THE specific sides of a war. My point Mr. Camp: Steven Pifer just named the reasons why we might soon find ourselves in all out war. All this clan-based thinking, it hurts to see it terraform our people’s history, forever. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but the clepto-neoliberal, power wielding, elitist of our species are upset with other emerging countries increasing their sphere of influence away from the US dollar. So we then, what? We counter with an absolute, the military industrial complex. I dont think “they” say these things out loud much before any mouthpieces get to work, and that’s why the Ctr. foda Nat. Interest rush through talking points. Very little room for dissent on the company line, as evidenced by the Russian representatives in the panel i mentioned before, whose statments are too easily dismissed. No one sees the power, plus need, to connect the dots anymore. So on that note, thank you for what you have done with journalism and humoring our lesser thoughts into illumination. Take care buddy

I watch redacted tonite “v.I.p.” every Thursday. And. “Redacted tonite ” every Friday. I have been watching rat.com every day for the last 4 years.
Most of the problems America is facing comes from the fact of wrong naming things & thus paving the way to non-sense, crazyness or/and phoniness… Take the political parties : ” Democrats ” vs. ” Republicans ” … These guys should be in the same team, not fighting each other. This surely comes from US History, and the need to (over?-) simplify the english language for immigrants – the new-comers- to understand… Europe and the rest of the world has had the advantage to stick with its old cultures & languages, and not sacrificing that for the sake of out-siders. To get back, to authenticity, One has to (re)search on etymology, re-do simple but rigorous english re-definition of things & concepts. In other words, counter the destructive works of Big-Brother, by (re-) building the masses through a total makeover of WORDs education. Attribute meanings to the right things, & Vice Versa. Just like in German or in French.

I have a podcast version of the show that’s available on iTunes and Stitcher. It’s called “Moment of Clarity.”
Heh heh, got that wrong- the host, Don and Moscow U professor are not talking about the US media rather, the U.S. senate.
Oh yeah.. one last thing.
If you use a phone radio4all is better. If you click on a show file on a pc it will immediately play but you can right click the play button to download an audio file.
P.P.P.S. Listening to March 31 ’17 CPR News discussing the US media ignoring the Award winning praise of RT America. Nice coincidence.
Thanks again Lee and your friends!
Crap! I forgot my real point.
Do you have a sound file of the show that can be downloaded? That would make it way easier to throw you into a robot dj.
P.S. Have you seen radio4all.com ? Good stuff. Revolutionaries and some cadds. I recommend the CPR News outta NYC – makes Amy Goodman look like the Ford Foundation tool that she is. (I♡Amy).
I don’t tweet. I guess I’m half luddite. I’m going to start pirating your show because it’s the just about the best thing out there.
Starting today, like 2 people will be hearing your show on frolympia.airtime.pro. Free Radio Olympia has been around since 2001 but off air for about 5 years. Our FM isn’t up yet but the stream is finally back. We rareley ask permission but I wanted to let you know and offer you a mic if you’re travelling that road that spans from Canada to Mexico near the Pacific ocean.
Thanks a billion!
C’mon Monseigneur Lee Camp, can’t you get an All American quote… not one like Howard Zinn’s that strangely seems plagarized from some french author ( Etienne de La Boétie – Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)…
Hey brother, even though you were recently PDX, we came to see you…. I would be thrilled to listen to you live again. Please join us again soon.
Anyone seen G. Wilders delighted and very happy for luckily not winning the election in the netherlands?
So sorry Benjamin Franklin got/made a lame translation for the Rédaction of US Constitution…
Bottom Line Monsieur Lee Camp: Learn French and live the American Dream here in France… Or in Canada, if you prefer! We ain’t chauvinistic & like & respect our Canadian cousins!
American writters Franzen, Hedges, & Wolff among others must verily like reading Moulin-Rouge authors… Getting inspiration across the Atlantic, the “idea” pillaging has been going on for centuries , ever since Benjamin Franklin came to Paris to get a couple of ideas for the redaction of a Constitution… Other example when Levi Strauss got hold of Denim! America in all its greatness!
Sorry Lee…me again BUT we all should be as self reflecting that we cannot fight right wing populism with left wing populism by using the same easy solution utopia setup.
PLEASE DON’T!!! kinda drifts there and not slowly.
Please dump this “just selling my books” populist Proffessor Wolff.
Could see it in your reactions that his story was way too utopia and one track minded OR JUST F…ING STUPID.
Just watched a close to falling assleep Lee Camp as bedtime story became strange.
Did You actually tell people that company cost saving is only done for profit for the owners? And that you don’t have to fire workers if new machinery doubles production you just let them work half time for same money? Democratic managed by the workers?
Tell you something, this is called demagogy – the atomic bomb of butter knive right wing populism.
1.) what about cost saving because the competitor sells for half price and you as the owner of the company doesn’t want to loose all jobs. Fire a few to save the most – not everybody has a monopole on something needed by everybody.
2.) Who in a democratic worker managed company decides which new machines will be brought in order to double the income (or let them work half day for full pay) of a few workers.
How fair would it be for work places that can’t be upgraded.
How to compensate the new 2 shifts communication that additionally arises…etc.
If one day everybody that wanna make me think that it is possible to fix complex problems with easy solutions dies instantly, would change the world in the most positiv imaginable matter.
Vouloir brule. Pouvoir détruit. “Desire burns. Power destroys… [And/or corrupts]”

The ship has hit several icebergs. Waterways are filling up the decks. Many folks are stuck in the bottom …Some have jumped into lifeboats. Others struggle or are lifeless in freezing water. All that’s left for the cool guys is to have fun & enjoy the the Vodka & Cognac, while listening to some Chopin set piece in the Lounge.
A toast to Stoic elegance.
Let’s leave the violence, fear, and cynicism to others…
Why fight it? This will end up in some deep state anyways.
Done and done. He’ll be on this week’s episode.
Lee is there any way that you can get Sam Ronan on your show Redacted Tonight VIP before the Democrats have to vote on the DNC chair before the end of February? Thanks!
Dear Mr Camp, ( sorry but I have to build in some prejudice joke)
I am a foreign watcher of your show as I am living in “as stupid as wanted” fuc…. hell of Germany. ( now joke is clear)
And no I am not watching US political comedy (if still possible) because we idiots in Europe didn’t have enough “limited impossibilities” bullshit on our own – I am just bored to death with the european way of undemocratising and holding defibrilator to blank bones.
( ever thought about expanding to Europe? )
US is quite different – at your side of the pool, Politicians kinda put everything given into a big mixer and think to extract something better.
In EU the (new) Politicians just take what is given to them and then just ram it 20% deeper in the poor working class. Never go back….one of Germanys unwritten laws. You create a law and realize that it was a mistake, then you create 10 other laws to prevent the mistake law to take effect.
Activism: As always diluted by nominal members with no plan, always wrong comments, misunderstood as community of no personal hygiene and on top showing their shared house that shows how filthy their future society would look like as they coundn’t even clean the toilet. Yes the statements of the few activist knowing what they were doing are good and should be followed, but not with that kind of fink cross marketing. People are afraid running out of toilet paper forever.
Democracy: that this one needs a lot of makeovers is clear since the start of the Euro currency. But it is not good when someone can vote for or against something she or he isn’t affected in any way. If we would start a vote for or against abortion – do you think men should vote? What about 90 year old impotent men with no relatives?
– just one more thing….quite important in understanding democracy:
They made a subjective test of sports apparel from a known brand. The first group of 10 testers got their clothes from a no name manufacturer the other group from the brand. And the next day the other way round. Everybody of these 20 testers confirmed that the brand apparel was best and way beyond the no name stuff…not sticking shirts, better performance…the whole bullshit told to them in the commercials.
After all of them literally digged their personal graves near planet core deep, they were told the truth, that they were always wearing the brand apparel and that they only removed the logos.
Tells me if 51% of my German people are stupid, democracy goes wrong – good for me that fuc..ing 95% here are fucking stupid…beer…socker….titts….stupid. Ever watched German news…50% of the time is about soccer and 40% that fireman helped a little cat off the tree.
10% Angela shaking hands with someone.
The planet: Why is everybody talking about saving the planet when they only want to save the human race – Earth came along a very long time without us…we are not the planet. And by the way and clearly as a strung out German by a phonebook thick pack of laws that should save the planet and kill my financial situation for my whole live ( working over 250days a year ony for the tax). If you don’t spend money in solar panels on your roof, because you can’t afford it…have to feed kids or care for old parents, then you have to pay a fine and an extra tax and a higher rate on electricity.
Feel free to shit on the environmental camouflage to get more cash out of the tax payers.
When I kick you in the balls you feel high level pain and therefore not good but it gets better by the time and you feel quite good when pain reliefs.
Now I kick you in the balls every 5 minutes…now every 5 minutes you have one very bad minute and 4 minutes when you feel well.
This is Germany 4/5 is good.
Take care….and laugh on my jokes right!
Check out movie “The Act of Killing” by Joshua Oppenheimer. It masterfully documents the Indonasian Holocaust in the 1960, which was orchestrated by Economic Hit Men… John Perkins was one of them.
There is a vitally important issue which must be addressed to stop the subjugation of Americans by those who despise and exploit them.
Blackbox electronic “voting” is the digital death of democratic representation in government.
The Russians and/or who knows who all else just took advantage of an easy opportunity, much as car thieves who can’t resist stealing luxury vehicles left unlocked with keys in their ignitions.
Things which should be known beyond all doubt:
How many eligible electors were removed from the electronic database rolls? Who were they, and who removed them?
For the massive majorities of electors forced to use paperless DREs, ballot opscans, polling precinct communications computers, and central tabulators built by foreigners and owned/operated by private corporations, exactly what hardware, firmware, and software – including backdoors – were involved? Exactly what chain of custody existed, if any, for all devices and removable media used on those devices?
What security measures were implemented, if any, to the modem transmissions of data sent from polling precincts to county elections officials?
If these things can not be known beyond all doubt, the results of any “election” are invalid.
At least paper ballots counted by hand can be observed throughout the process.
Any American who appreciates the ideals on which the USA was originally based would fight to the death for representation in government, as this nation’s founders were willing to do. If this “election” were legit there would be nothing to fear for the status quo, but if not it would signal a clear call for the restoration/implementation of genuine democratic processes in this republic.
Questioning the blackbox is totally appropriate.
The rigged “voting” systems don’t allow for valid recounts or audits.
Too many vital states use completely inappropriate electronic “voting” systems. Florida uses paperless and other suspect equipment in its major population areas. Michigan uses paper ballots but they are “counted” with opscans shown to be subject to tampering. Wisconsin is worse, with some paperless systems even more easily manipulated with no hope of recounts. Pennsylvania is by far one of the worst examples of a state forced into use of a totally paperless DRE-based system allowing for no valid counts or recounts. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as numerous other states, replaced real voting by the use of antiquated Asian mystery hardware/firmware/software accessible by myriad entities including but not limited to felons, rabid partisans, traitors, and foreigners such as Chinese and Russian hackers. There are touchscreens subject to various types of tampering including backdoors and simply applying viscous substances to the screens. Pedro Cortés illegally stopped PA citizens from demanding that the “voting” systems be examined by experts because he knows they’re defective and easy to rig.
People in most states have to wait in long lines to try to use such unreliable machines when using paper would be much faster and more convenient. You can’t expect valid elections when you outsource them rather than making sure they’d involve ballots and counts made in the USA.
In strategic population centers of over 40 states, actual counts of real ballots have been replaced by the use of foreign-built devices owned by unaccountable corporations. These electronic systems are proprietary and of undisclosed design, build, programming, and operation. They are vulnerable to easily-concealed manipulations and known to lose, switch, and fake votes. Even mailed, absentee, and other handwritten ballots are manually fed into hackable opscans, and the central tabulators are particularly problematic. They were unsecured and obsolete when new and that was over a decade ago now. Thus democracy dies via digital disenfranchisement.
Some wonder why more tech savvy young people don’t turn out to vote. Those young people wonder why they try to call it that.
A very partial list of computer experts who have pointed out the problems includes, but is not remotely limited to:
Aviel Rubin, PhD, Professor of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University
Edward Felten, PhD, Deputy U.S. Chief Technology Officer for The White House, formerly Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University
Michael Fischer, PhD, Professor of Computer Science at Yale University
David Dill, PhD, Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University
Rebecca Mercuri, PhD, Computer Security Forensics Consultant, former Fellow, Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University

Herbert Thompson, PhD, Adjunct Professor of Computer Science, Columbia University
Watch this video for an excellent summary:
This cover letter explains the next few pages. I have written “The Declaration of Independence 2017”. It is modeled after the original but has been updated and has in it additional demands. As you know our government is corrupt and acts against the citizens of this nation. It acts without regard to the Constitution as well as the principles in the Declaration of Independence.
Our government has legalized corruption and bribery. It has fought against our freedom to assemble and our right to protest illegal and unconstitutional activity. Our government is trading human lives and human health for corporate profits and political bribery. Our country is rated the highest in arms export and at the same time is rated extremely low on the Global Peace Index. We are told “we fight for freedom” yet we jail more people than China or Russia combined.
Does it stand to reason that the nation with the largest economy does not have the best education system, the best healthcare, the best infrastructure or the best livability? We rate very low in freedom of the press due to government and corporate censorship and propaganda. Our wealth as a nation is not spent to benefit the citizens, instead, it is held in tax-exempt overseas banks which are owned by the top one percent and large corporations.
As you read this realize a government for and by the people has disappeared. Our forefathers have died in vain. We have lost the “blessings of liberty”. The vast majority of our political representatives have broken their oath to support “liberty and justice for all”. Our government is now run by bigots, thieves, torturers, fascists, pedophiles and liars who are corrupt corporate puppets. Our government unjustly destroys our constitutional rights and our democratic process and it must be resisted by non-cooperation. This is a call for a strike against tyranny and oppression. And we demand our privacy back as per the fourth amendment.
By agreeing with or signing this document we commit to fight for our human honor, our reputation as a nation and our personal freedom. We demand affordable healthcare, truthful non-bias news, honest statesmen who represent the people and prison reform. We want to protect and reward whistleblowers who uncover government corruption and lies. We demand constitutional reform stating that money is not equal to free speech and that declares corporations are not people. We demand tax reform so it is proportional to income and wealth and a balanced budget. We demand that we scale down our black ops and military sites and instead spend money on infrastructure and education system. We demand that unnecessary wars, torture and police brutality end. We demand a living wage and affordable health insurance the same as our politicians get.
We demand our right to “alter or abolish” our government which is destroying the middle class while the welfare for the rich is required by law and demonstrated by an unreasonable income gap. We, as the citizens of the nation want our country back and we want to make it great again where honesty, justice and freedom reign. We now go on strike, we stop paying taxes to a despotic government, we block commerce and we occupy Washington DC with people rather than corporate money. The struggle for freedom begins anew.
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 2017
An action of the people by popular consent and decree
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, in order to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed and whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its power most likely to cause or affect their safety and happiness.
Prudence indeed will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes and accordingly, all experience has shown that mankind is more disposed to suffer, than to right them by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. However, when a long train of abuses, usurpations, and absolute despotism rules the nation, it is the people’s right and it is their duty to throw off such government and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of the people of the United States. We throw off bondage to an illegal and unconstitutional government. To prove the need for a new government which is constituted for and by the people, let the facts be submitted to a candid world.
The Federal Government of the United States has created laws which are unconstitutional and detrimental to its citizens. It has abridged our freedom of speech and has compromised the truth and honesty in the press, and has prohibited the right of the people to peacefully assemble. It has obstructed and impedes the rights of citizens to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
The Federal Government of the United States has refused the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. It issues global warrants without probable cause. It has invaded every home, every personal phone call, email and text. Our personal privacy and security has been eliminated without cause or due process of law.
The Federal Government of the United States has imposed cruel and unusual punishment which it inflicts upon citizens and foreigner alike. It endorses torture in black ops sites and overseas prisons. It imposes the death penalty on people who have been accused of crimes who were later found innocent.
The Federal Government has created rules and conditions to prevent fair and honest elections. The political system provides only corporate friendly candidates who take legalized bribes. It has silently sent CIA or economic hit men to corrupt or kill heads of state in other countries.
The Federal Government has mismanaged our nation’s wealth so poorly that the General Accounting Office has little idea where or how our tax money is spent. Government initiated waste and graft is rampant and has enriched the Military Industrial Complex, the insurance and health industries with highly inflated contracts which in turn they give large kickbacks to corrupt politicians.
The Federal Government has imposed the world’s largest national debt on its citizens without their consent all the while giving congressional leaders pay increases, generous retirement benefits, armed security and free healthcare, all of which they deny to the citizens they represent and serve.
The Federal Government has militarized local police departments and encouraged the police to use force on those who protest the government’s illegal and unconstitutional actions.
The Federal Government of the United States has tortured, killed or imprisoned thousands of people, both domestic and foreign. American citizens are objects of government atrocities including: The Tuskegee Experiments, The Missouri Mormon Extermination, slavery, the MKULTRA Program, Operation Keelhaul, the treatment of Native Americans, radiation experiments which killed unsuspecting innocent citizens, the 1940 Chicago prisoner infection, Project Paperclip, Agent Orange exposures, Project Thirdchance, Project MKNOMI, the Dachau massacre, the Biscari massacre, the Battle of Okinawa rapes, the slaughter of 200,000 in Guatemala, the Gulf of Tonkin false flag operation, illegal gag orders on chem-trails, the cover-up of pedophile rings, collaboration with illegal drug organizations, forcing fiat money upon its citizens, Operation Midnight Climax, the prosecution of Edward Snowden and dozens of honest patriotic whistleblowers.
The Federal Government has a well-documented history of insider trading with Wall Street, revolving doors and quid pro quo relationships with large corporations. It has given power and wealth to the large corporations and the wealthy while ignoring and diminishing the income, rights and power of the common man through low wages, unjust laws, high taxes, inflation and neglect of the Constitution, their sworn oath, and the upholding of the principles in the first Declaration of Independence.
In every stage of these oppressions the citizens have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered by repeated injury and oppression. A government whose character is thus marked by every act which defines a tyrant is unfit to be a ruler of a free people.
The first rule of order for a new government which represents the people is the following Constitutional amendment proposed by MoveToAmend:
“Section 1. ( Artificial Entities such as Corporations do not have Constitutional rights)
The rights protected by the Constitution of the United States are the rights of natural persons only.
Artificial entities established by the laws of any states, the United States or any foreign state shall have no rights under this Constitution and are subject to regulation by the people, through Federal, State and local law.
Section 2. (Money is not free speech)
Federal, State, and local governments shall regulate, limit, or prohibit contributions and expenditures, including a candidates own contributions and expenditures, to ensure that all citizens, regardless of their economic status, have access to the political process, and that no person gains, as a result of their money, substantially more access or ability to influence in any way the election of any candidate for public office or any ballot measure.
Federal, State and local governments shall require that any permissible contributions and expenditures be publically disclosed including the amount given or donated and the source from which it came.
The Judiciary shall not construe the spending of money to influence elections to be speech under the First Amendment.”
In order to make an orderly change and transfer of power to the people, we, the people of this once great nation refuse to pay taxes to an unconstitutional and illegal government which does not represent the welfare of its own citizens.
Furthermore, as a union of free and sovereign patriots, we claim the right to strike, protest and seek justice and freedom. Until our government is determined to be a government for the people and by the people, we as patriotic citizens will not comply with unreasonable or unconstitutional terms, conditions, laws or orders proclaimed by the current illegal and unconstitutional government.
Those in power now, our political brethren, we ask for your support by disavowing the past corrupt government and renouncing the illegal and immoral form of government of the past. Do not continue to be deaf to the voice of justice, consanguinity and the love of God.
We reject the existing political parties and labels such as conservative and liberal. We are not black or white, religious or not. We are no longer a divided nation, but one nation under God.
We therefore, the people of the United States, appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people of this nation, solemnly publish and declare our freedom of all legal, economic and political bonds or obligations between the existing Federal Government. The States will now organize itself to create a new country free of corporate influence and political tyranny and reestablish a country based on a reformed Constitution and the principles in the Declaration of Independence. We the people have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce and all endeavors that any free people should be able to do. We pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor in order to create a new, free society and a better world for our posterity and the nations of the world.
I covered it here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3c1GOzxTxJ8
did anyone compare the countries now banned by Donald Trump to the list of countries (7 countries in 5 years) Gen. Wesley Clark mentioned in his interview with democracy now? Looks like some coincidence to me.
Love the show Lee. I’m here to ask you if you’ve considered covering the topic of MMT (Modern Monetary Theory) on your show? I’m a fan of Steve Grumbine’s ‘Real Progressives’ where he talks about how our taxes do not fund Federal spending, the Federal Reserve IS an essential part of our govt, Deficit spending is good, but a balanced budget is bad, etc. MMT could be the one thing that could unite the Left and the Right, seriously. Why? Imagine the reaction of your viewers if they heard, especially from a qualified economist such as, Stephanie Kelton, Warren Mosler, Ellis Winningham, or Steve Grumbine, that all of the programs that Bernie promoted, (33 Trill) could be paid for tomorrow, and not by taxpayers. This is the big ugly secret that the govt doesn’t want us to know, and yet is a verifiable fact. I do hope you’ll consider the idea. Thanks. Steve S Smith.
Thanks Andrea, but the two shows have not sold out. So there’s no real reason for a second night.
DUDE PLEEEEEAAAASE book a second night in Austin TX!!!
The evil fucks behind the republican, Nazi curtain. Expose them, Lee!
They gave us Scalia, alit to, Roberts, Tax cuts for the rich…They hate our Constitution and democracy…Everything WRONG with our country
Hi Lee, You said in a recent RT show that we need a (cerebral) revolution. One of those has existed for two and a half millennia, but has been kept under wraps. Socrates discovered that any human ‘understanding’ can be shown to be erroneous, by posing its possessor a few simple bespoke queries. Which will quickly cause them to contradict their own narrative. Because all such constructs are devised by humans, and all humans are fallible. Try this thought experiment: Take up virtual pen and paper, then reverse engineer the means by which unadulterated reality finds its way into the human brain. If you determine than it never can, nor ever has, you will have experienced a revelation. Consider this: When we dream we are prepared to accept without question a ‘reality’ existing inside an hermetically sealed enclosure. When awake we are presented with another experience, which can be used as a comparator against that previous ‘consciousness’. But we are never able to make direct connection with actual reality. To achieve that all-knowing state, which would provide us with the means to evaluate the authenticity of the waking state. Keep questioning. Best regards, al.
Great opening monologues , used to listen to AM1090 until the fascists turned it into sports talk in Seattle. Here is an idea for a film short, a short history of this election with the soundtrack from Night At The Opera by Queen with updated lyrics. This election has been like a dog taking a crap in the front lawn. Too much finger pointing by DNC, have they tried looking in the mirror. Can we trades DWS for Lindsay Graham? Sarah Palin for Russian ambassador, will Putin send her back pregnant? I think the Ship of Fools has arrived. Just thinking of the Wiemar republic brings a tear to my eye. Now the only thing left to do is burn the Riechstag down, where’s Liddy with the matches?
Thanks. And yes, you can sign up to the newsletter in the sidebar to the right. Right here on the website.
I hope you are at least finding some decent weed while you are out there travelling the country and working your ass off! Thanks….just….so much thanks….. for all you are doing to affect change in this world. If you ever need a personal assistant who rolls a wicked joint, let me know. lol. ~THC;)
PS….I couldn’t sign up for your newsletter because it doesn’t seem to an activated cell. Anywhere else I could get added to your mailing list? I don’t do FB anymore. 🙂
Lee, Did you know about this?
5 Pine Point Road
Thank you so much for what you do. I was raised in a Christian Republican household and, believing all the lies the corporate state fed us, joined the army right out of high school and did three combat deployments to Afghanistan. In my last year or so in the service, I went through a massive Awakening and your Moment of Clarity videos contributed to that awakening. I started watching them on Youtube in early 2013 and have never missed a single episode of Redacted Tonight since you switched over.
You’ve inspired me to take up the fight with you of spreading truth, and humor, lest we all lose our sanity. I’ve set up a website with one blog post so far and two chapters of a book idea I’ve had in my head forever meshing my military experience with the adventures of a friend of mine who dove balls deep into the Occupy Movement in San Francisco. Check it out when you have a minute. I’d greatly appreciate any feedback or tips you have for me on my content or how to get started, especially tips in web-design (my website is a skeleton right now) or operating a Facebook Page (Why the hell do they have to be so damn complicated! Take a tip from Twitter, right!? The difference between the two is like that between Apple and Windows 8 – I don’t want all customizable, resizable, funky-fresh doo-dads that never work!) . . .
Anyway, check me out sometime. Let me know if I’m any good or if I ought to just quit now and stick to manual labor.
P.S. If I’m any good, consider this blog my audition. I’ll be ready to move out to D.C. in a heartbeat if you have an opening for a writer.
Thank you, Mike!
I saw your show last night in Seattle, I just wanted to say thank you and Jon for having the show it was fantastic. I really appreciate you guys speaking up about the big problems that plague America. RT and Redacted Tonight is the only news show I watch on television because you cover actual news and share facts and knowledge. I’ll do my part to help get the word out to tune in.
Keep up the good work and I hope you come back to Seattle very soon!
Hey, so I have been watching your show on redacted tonight and y’all seem very interested in climate change. I’m very interested in this subject as well and in asking that you cover the impact that animal agriculture has on climate change. Please watch cowspiracy to see what I mean. Thank you
Hi Lee, Another important video from Bev Harris, which includes following info:
Fraction Magic – Detailed Vote Rigging Demonstration
Q: Does Fraction Magic always use a USB?
A: No. It can also be on the computer or use remote access
Q: Who put it there?
A: According to programmers and court testimony: a convicted felon; 23 counts on previous computer crimes.
A: Jeffrey W. Dean. Previously employed by Bud Krogh, the former head of White House Plumbers unit under Richard Nixon.
Jeffrey Dean put some other stuff in there too.
It is not over.:
Let’s make it right.
Ballot Images – A new way to verify that results are true
By Bev Harris November 2, 2016
The Solution to Vote Fractionalizing
Although votes can be fractionalized while adding them up, the ballot images( pictures taken of the ballots) can not be reduced to fractions. The solution is to issue temporary restraining orders in swing state counties so that the ballot images can be preserved. The act of issuing TRO’s will also be a deterrent in itself to fractionalizing votes in an effort to steal the election. This process could apply to all elections, presidential, state and county elections as well as bond issues and propositions.
If you are interested in getting involved in making this happen, if you are a lawyer and if you know a lawyer or lawyers who might also be interested in preserving ballot images using TRO’s, please contact us at TrustVote.org as soon as possible, as we will need to issue these TRO’s for the most part BEFORE the election. And, as you might expect, organizing this effort will require money. So please DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN to support to fight election fraud in our country. THANK YOU SO MUCH on behalf of TrustVote and our challenged democracy!
Part 1 – A Detailed Presentation on Fraction Magic and the Solution to it
In Part Two, which follows in the next email, I will also be going into which companies appear to be using it and how they are hiding from the American public.
In terms of understanding Fraction Magic more fully, it is the YouTube in Part I on (see paragraph #5 below) that helped me understand Fraction Magic the most. Paragraph #4 below gives you the contact details for John Brakey who will give people anywhere in the country guidance on filing ballot image requests in the counties that have them.
As mentioned in my earlier update, the only protection against vote fractionalizing is saving ballot images. This is done by making freedom of information requests. If the election official resists, then a TRO to save the ballot images can be presented in court. Guidelines for creating an effective TRO are presented towards the bottom in my last update. There are only ballot images on 40% of scanners in the U.S. There are some ballot images on some DRE’s. Nonetheless, having ballot images for 40% of voters is better than nothing. If the ballot images are saved, the next step is hand counting them which is very easy to accomplish with volunteers in close elections. If you, the reader, feel confused about how to make ballot image requests or how to organize TRO’s, please consult with John Roberts Brakey of Audit Az, who is offering his cell phone number (520) 339-2696 and email firstname.lastname@example.org at this time to help you.
You can email attorney Robert Fitrakis for assistance in filing ballot image requests at RobertFitrakis@gmail.com or call him at 614 374 2380. Please put the nature of your request in the title of the email to him.
Thanks so much, Michael!!
Just a heads-up about something that might be useful, even after the election if Hillary wins. I may be wrong, but I have a master’s in counseling, and I have seen examples of this before–I’m pretty sure Hillary Clinton has an unconscious mannerism of *nodding* every time she tells a lie. When I saw this years ago, I was freelancing videotaping legal depositions, and as I watched this lady (who was part of a family of scammers) being deposed, I noticed that whenever she told a whopper, one of her eyelids would drop all the way down in a big wink. She had no idea she was doing it.
First off, let me say that your show “Redacted Tonight” has made me believe in a better world again (mildly believe but still so). I was officially sold when I saw your bit on “crazy ass shit that is now considered normal” but when you brought up topics including the TPP, Operation Northwoods, and Edward Bernays, let’s just saw I fell in love (sure you get that all the time). You truly are the daily show, if the daily show didn’t have to cater to corporate interests.
There is one main reason for me writing to you (besides to tell you how awesome you are). I believe I have a topic for one of your next episodes: Industrial Hemp. I’m not sure how much you know about Industrial Hemp (I assume a lot) but hemp has a lot of applications including in construction materials, biodegradable plastics, paper, clothing, cars, batteries, and fuel. Even though Industrial Hemp could have been a god send to the world, it unfortunately was made illegal under the marijuana tax act of 1937. Many hemp historians agree that the main reason for Hemp becoming illegal (and thus marijuana) was due to hemp’s potential to put the Hearst Paper Co out of business, along with, being an alternative to the petroleum based plastics created by DuPont at the time. Industrial Hemp in the 21st century has the potential to produce ridiculously cheap houses that are of better quality than traditional houses, and don’t require the harsh chemicals used in traditional homes. Hemp based plastics can be a solution to our massive plastic problem and if hemp had been used as paper instead of tress (and hemp can produce 4x the amount of paper as trees in the same space, and only takes 2-5 months to grow) deforestation may not have become a serious issue (ignoring the effects of animal agriculture). And as I mentioned above, you can convert hempseeds (a byproduct of hemp cultivation) into BIODEISEL FUEL, and at an conversion efficiency of 97% it could have been a solution to our energy dependence.
So there ya have it, I think your viewers and cast members would love to hear about this topic as it is ingrained in virtually every topic you discuss (environmentalism, corporate control of government, progressive economics, healthy/sustainable living, etc.). If this topic is of interest let me know (email@example.com) and I would be glad to send you a senior paper (college) that I produced on this topic which includes the applications I mentioned along with ones that I didn’t (food, clothing, batteries, cars, etc.). Also just for your own interest I suggest you google the word “Zeoform” it is a eco-plastic start-up that has a process that makes plastic with cellulose and water…that’s it (seriously nothing else, no chemicals, binders, glues, etc). I hope to hear from you soon Lee and once again thank you for the work you’ve done with this show, honestly. I work in the finance department of a law firm that has clients that let’s just say I’m not a fan of (hey first job out of college, you take what you can get right); I literally watch your show every day (re-watched each episode at least 4-5 times each) and it is one of the only things that keeps me sane and for that (again) I thank you. Hope you are doing well and please keep up the great work, hopefully I can see your stand up next time you’re in NYC (I was away the Sunday you were at Chelsea’s).
Michael “Misha” Schmidt
P.S. please tell John F O’Donnell that he is a genius and I cheer each time he comes on
Thanks Lee. I see you have quoted Bev Harris. Here is a positive action based on her work to try to make our elections more fraud-proof that can be done now:
A few days ago, we told you about the problem of fractionalizing votes. I mentioned that we would be sending you a letter with a really good solution that has worked once before and could work again. Although votes can be fractionalized while adding them up, the ballot images (pictures taken of the ballots) can not be reduced to fractions. The solution is to issue temporary restraining orders in swing state counties so that the ballot images can be preserved. The act of issuing TRO’s will also be a deterrent in itself to fractionalizing votes in an effort to steal the election. This process could apply to all elections, presidential, state and county elections as well as bond issues and propositions.
If you are interested in getting involved in making this happen, if you are a lawyer and if you know a lawyer or lawyers who might also be interested in preserving ballot images using TRO’s, please contact us at TrustVote.org as soon as possible, as we will need to issue these TRO’s for the most part BEFORE the election. And, as you might expect, organizing this effort will require money. So please DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN to support to fight election fraud in our country.
THANK YOU SO MUCH on behalf of TrustVote and our challenged democracy!
WHAT CAN VOTERS DO TO RECTIFY THESE PROBLEMS:
Election activist John Brakey and attorney William Risner assert that destroying ballot images is against Federal law: Federal law 52 U.S.C § 20701 requiring retention of federal election materials, provides a penalty of up to $1,000 fine and one year in jail for premature destruction of that material (was formerly 42 U.S.C § 1974).
For the November elections, Brakey and Risner recommend the following strategy:
• File a public record request (ASAP) asking for ballot images for the last and the next election. The request should include other critical documents like the Cast Vote Record (CVR). We can provide a draft of what to request.
• If ballot images are or have been destroyed then file a special action Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), which is usually easy to request.
• If they refuse your public records request for “ballot images,” then file another special action in the form of a Mandamus Act. When you win they have to pay all expenses and legal fees.
Bev Harris has been studying how votes are fractionalized. She call it “Fraction Magic” When adding up votes, the tabulator can fractionalize the votes if it is programmed that way. She has been working with John Brakey on how to PRESERVE BALLOT IMAGES. Bev Harris has happily discovered that images of the ballots CANNOT BE FRACTIONALIZED. That is why they must be preserved.

You should VIP this guy. It would probably be interesting. https://www.facebook.com/JamesOKeefeAuthor/?fref=ts
Another idea–a take-off on the old Certs commercial (I’m dating myself, I know). It’s the debates, and both Trump and Clinton are pointing at each other, saying, “You’re a sociopath!” The moderate, like the announcer in the commercial, says, “Stop! You’re both right!”
Idea for a graphic or political cartoon–please pass on to anyone interested in executing it (beyond my skills). Weather broadcast, hurricane tracking, two Category 5 hurricanes bearing down on the Capitol, “Trump” and “Hillary.” Weather announcer, tagged as a “journalist,” is being dragged off in chains.
never miss your show on RT – 76 year old granny here – thanks so much for your insightful commentary – keep it up and I will keep fighting!
Hi Lee! I’m a fan from Argentina. I love your show and podcast. It’s always refreshing to know of critical americans and political comedians that seem to actually know and research issues. Your view point is very similar to mine. We’re all underneath the globalization cloud, and suffering from many similar issues. I like seeing your show because I can see that although the US is a first world country, we’re not too bad off here in Argentina. As opposed to what I see when I see other north american tv shows, entertainment and news, your shows give a picture of the US that is more real. Buenos Aires is cool, you should come. Although I don’t know how many people know you here. I think your work is important now that corporatism is fighting for it’s control, aided by right wing governments. Here in Latin America we are being surrounded by right wing governments and puppet presidents. But thanks to being Latin American, still, and very broad eyed, we are resisting. It’s hard, because we have to hold on to our principals and memory. What you described as targeted killings from the government in the fight for terrorism sounds all too familiar to the “war on terrorism” done by the militaries here in Argentina in the 70s. Yes, we had 30.000 civilians killed by that war. We remember them every 24th of march and Obama very ironically came to visit this year at that date. But we’re not stupid and our human rights organizations are strong, although they are politicized and I think should also be criticized. Anyways, good work!!!
I’m not 76.
The show does air at least once more every week on Mondays at 5:30pm. I don’t know about different cable packets, etc. But you can also always watch it at youtube.com/RedactedTonight
1. Your Facebook ‘about’ section lists your birthdate as Born on July 21, 1940. There’s no way in hell hat you are 76 years old. I should know, I’m 72. So, is this a typo, or an intentional bit of humor?
2. I don’t have cable, but did see you once on RT, channel 35-4 in Philadelphia. The television page from the paper lists only 35-1 programming. Will you please write back and tell me when your program airs on channel 35-4? And is it more than once per week?

Encountered your video via diaspora social network. Please join and leave these corporate surveillance networks.
So where do I get my high quality, Redacted Tonight, t-shirt? (Need a 3X, I’m workin’ on that)
Lee, I’m 67 and a devoted fan, In the best of all worlds we wouldn’t need you, but THANK YOU for picking up the flag!
It would be nice if once every few totally important news shows you could make the same video without the “colorful metaphors”. I can’t show my female friends and family (read my wife) any of your stuff, I’d have to hide.
I did my best hitting all the Reno Bernie rallies, phone banking, and working on the Demo website. After the Las Vegas caucuses I was rebuffed by the local Democratic chairman as “not having done enough”. I was a Republican through Bush 1. I abandoned the rebuplican party as hopeless after shrub’s first term. Like Hillary, I was a Goldwater supporter in my youth.
I will vote straight Demo ticket this year except for president. That will be Jill Stein. I will change my affiliation after the election to green and start working there. I’m in Red central. I may have to start something on my own!
So, I want to say it was about a month and half ago or maybe two, where I was watching CNN ( I know, I know…I mostly watch just see them fuck it up hard everyday and wonder how these people sleep at night) but regardless, an interesting thing happened.
So CNN was reporting on something to do with Obama and were using live shots of the Whitehouse, when all of a sudden an Arab man was rushed from outside to meet with President Obama. At that moment, all the entertainers (reporters?) Were surprised, mentioned how there was no mention of this as an official meeting or they would have reported on it.
I too thought it was odd. So for the next few days I kept tuning in and scouring the net with anything to do with this meeting, but couldn’t find anything. Again, weird. What’s the big secret?
Wait, I remember…it was right around the time that there was all the pressure to release the 9/11 28 pages of redaction.
Anyway, maybe it’s nothing…but I just found it odd. I’m also noticing that the US is supplying weapons and who knows what else, to Saudi Arabia, whom are waging a terrible war in Yemen.
I feel like the US and Saudi have been up to nefarious actions….weapons, the 9/11 report and how it was barely a top news story, Clinton foundation, Yemen….I don’t know what it all means, but it makes me feel very uncomfortable
(Sent via email, but here’s another attempt)
I would like to propose an activity that could reinvigorate the Bernie supporters and take control of the DNC in 3 months.
1) If we could marshal half of the time and energy of the Bernie supporters that phone banked and canvassed for Bernie throughout 50 states, and concentrate that on the 9-12 battleground Senate races (not to reward the DNC, but to empower Bernie), we could quite possibly win *every single* race. The DNC and the GOP will be throwing everything they can at those races, and it’s likely that the DNC can win at least the 4 seats needed to take back the Senate if the VP is a liberal. Our third party efforts could tip the balance in the remaining contests (plus Tim Canova’s race).
2) *If* we did that, it would show the DNC that we have all the power, that we can affect elections, that we could “primary” NeoLiberals in 2018. This would give Bernie much more power in whatever role he gets next year, possibly even ?Majority Leader? Clinton would *have* to keep most of her promises, and the media would be buzzing about how the Progressives are taking over.
3) Selling this idea is hard. Bernie’s supporters are having trouble seeing the big picture and are still in mourning. And this kind of work is not sexy, it’s hard. But, if you could embrace and promote this strategy, and maybe get the surrogates on board, they could fire up the troops and make it happen. There are millions of us, who put our hearts and souls and money into a dream. This is a good dream, and I really think it could work, *if* we unite around it and execute it well. I don’t see why Bernie wouldn’t endorse it and it would refocus his supporters into a positive, productive direction, instead of fragmenting into schisms, which is starting to happen. Agreement must be reached immediately, announcements and endorsements must be rapid. We can focus the bulk of the activity in October, but we only have two months to get it ready.
4) As for the issue of who to vote for, I’m trying to get a consensus (in social media) that we should vote for Clinton in swing states only, and protest vote for Jill everywhere else, calculating that it won’t affect the Electoral College and we’ll still get a liberal President and SCOTUS. To make that easier for die hards, I’m also encouraging the swapping of votes (like they did in Canada to oust Harper) so that a swing state Jill voter, swaps with a non-swing state Clinton voter, ensuring the Electoral College victory, but still voting one’s conscience (by proxy). A strong protest vote campaign will also give us leverage.
Hulu´s privacy Nr 6…
There is currently no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means and how to respond to “Do Not Track” browser signals. As such, we do not respond to such signals. WTF it clearly doesn´t mean ignore my wish not to be tracked… Do something with this 😉
All of their required OPT OUT actions are about as stupid as this… you can´t…
Hi Lee. I might be going waaay out on a conspiracy here but, Since loose cannon, loud mouth non conformist trump is pretty much the opposite of “fall in line” gop party, the gop seem to like vp better than trump. So… how convenient would it be if trump was elected but then
“dissapeared” to blame the dems/progs? They would have a more “fall in line” fav and shift blame. Hmm… ?
I’m not the type of person who leaves comments on anything but I have to say your show is inspiring and refreshing to not only get news that is actually accurate and pertinent while being able to joke around to keep spirits up and not be angry and the end of hearing the outrageously depressing state of well the whole world. Thanks for the show, I continue to look forward to more and hope you schedule a live show out here in southern California sometime in the near future.
Hi Lee, I’ve been combing through your stuff for the last few days trying to see if you’ve looked into Del Bigtree’s Vaxxed doco. I can’t find any mention, but that could just be my shitty research skills. He calls it the biggest news story of his life. Watch the 20 min clip of Andrew Wakefield deal with the allegations against him and you can’t help but be blown away by the power of what he says. Thoughts?
Wonderful Show! Greatly Appreciated! Thanks!
Yes! You are So Very Appreciated ! Thanks for you Truth with comedy show : ) Yes!
This story is being redacted in more ways than one and major Gov anti-corruption watchdog nonprofit is investigating. Can you help me help this go viral to overcome VA and Justice Department use of search engine optimization to suppress my harm?
2 years ago today I nearly died because of harm ultimately due to a VA Waitlist at the Kalispell Veterans Clinic at the hands of a doctor who lives in, but is not FROM, Whitefish MT, my hometown.
On this day I am humbled at the sacrifice many of our veterans have made to protect our freedoms, and horrified at how many are treated upon returning home.
I really enjoy your show. Its very well done. i was wondering if your a fan of the D.C local music scene and if so, have you given thought to having a musical performance segment at the end of the show? Maybe not for every episode but once a month.
“The Tea Party Limited” and “Americans for Prosperity” are both in the Panama Papers. Check it out
Thank you!! I don’t have plans for comedy specials right now. I’ve been overwhelmed with the show!!
Hey Lee I just wanted to say you are an inspiration to so many people and I have been a huge fan since the early days of moment of clarity and it still rocks. Are you going to do any comedy specials coming up at all. I know you are busy as fuck with all the shows you are on but keep up the fantastic work. The revolution is getting closer everyday and it is going to change everything. Keep kicking ass and calling out the piece of shit assholes that are trying to control the fucking country and our freedom along with it. Amazing shows!!!
Do you have a reading list complied from Authors you’ve interviewed from VIP? Or perhaps a suggested reading list from you? i was looking online with no luck. Thank you for everything that you do!
P.S. I wish more men had long hair- keep fighting! 😉
Okay Lee, tanka får your answer. I suppose it depends on who you and me listen to and believe. According to the women’s lawyer it’s false that any of them was forced to do anything, besides the only thing I can find about anything close to a withdrawal of a statement is that the allegations put forth by one of the women has been a victim of statue of limitations so it’s not possible to go forth with it anymore. And the withdrawal from the persecution, I suppose has to do with the same thing but I can’t be sure because I can’t find any sources to a withdrawal for any other reason. Well it doesn’t matter much if he publicly says he can be interview in the embassy but at the same time is impossible because of Ecuador. I can’t prove this but I have a hard time seeing that the Ecuadoreans would go against Assange wishes in this. But okay, thanks for your answer. We all have the right to think differently about things.
You’re wrong. I have mentioned it. I covered it extensively on the show not long ago. I take rape allegations very seriously but there are too many holes in this thing to count. One of the two women withdrew her claim completely and said she was pressured to say it. The lead prosecutor withdrew their claim and said there was no evidence of sexual misconduct. However, the other prosecutor has not withdrawn it. And everything I’ve seen says that Assange still has his offer to meet with them in the embassy on the table. Furthermore, a UN panel called his situation illegitimate detainment.
I have been a supporter of you for years and you’re awesome. But please, can you explain to me how you can as a feminist not even mention the rape allegations against Julian Assange? How can you just say that “he should be released”? Isn’t he a human like everyone else and should be treated like such or do you think he’s too important to stand trial? I mean even though the Swedish authorities didn’t like it, they finally agreed to Julian’s demand of a hearing in the embassy but then he apparently changed his mind, isn’t that something? I think this is one of the few things I disagree with you about and I hope you can answer me so I get it. Thank Lee.
Do an episode in FDA’s request for comments on the term “natural”.
So proud of you Leecam….keep rolling, you are an intellectual weak up call to so many poor misinformed pple in here……we appreciate your existence….
I would love that, Magda!! Thanks!
Hi Lee! Greetings from Poland, I’ve been watching you for a couple of weeks and I’m intending to make Polish subtitles for your shows so that my friends can watch them too, I hope you don’t mind 😉 Amazing, funny, articulate, eye-opening material;)
At the very least you should be the new Lewis Black for Trevor Noah. Rock on.
Hey Lee – How long until you become the new Daily Show host? They calling yet?
I’m not sure what you mean. We have not missed a week – unless you mean I failed to put it up here on the website. That’s quite possible. If so, just go to YouTube.com/RedactedTonight to get it.
what happened to redacted tonight week ending the ist july-
disappointed to not seeing it on rt that week.?
In the UK the best satire we have is Charlie Brooker’s weeply wipe-
Extracting the urine out of Mainstream media like BBC-
He has a girl very similar to ABBEY-Philomena Cunk-not her real name
and she holds interviews with people as Abbey does- Have to give it to Lee though-
it aint in the same class as redacted. Dont stop!!!!
Today’s Redacted (July 18th UK)-
I have a complaint- I get back ache from laughing -beginning to end-programme not long enough.
Not so bad though- That strong element of TRUTH runs beneath it all like Voltarol! Abbey is a darling
and Odonnell is a bloody scream- And Lee-hes only just begun- awaiting his live performances
on YOUTUBE- Come to London and thaw out some of these uptight bastards in the city.
“they have you by the balls- its a big club and you aint in it!”
do you know this one lee? who is it? expecting great things from you.
It appears an administrator put you on the banned list. This could’ve been an accident or it couldn’t been that you said something horrible when you were drunk. HA! I have no idea. I’ve taken you off – so you should be able to comment again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Hi Lee, Love your stuff and keep up the good work! Recently I’ve noticed I cant comment or like your post’s on Facebook..? Have you turned this function off? (Im in Australia) if so can you please put it back on, all I get is a share which I dont mind sharing the content but would like to comment and like on some posts. cheers!
Thank you for the compliments! Sure, please air my videos anywhere you want.
God, I’d love to go there one day. Only made it as far as Australia in past tours.
Loving Redacted Tonight. A great crew. Love to see you in New Zealand one day.
Your videos and manic comic style remind me a lot of my old friend Eric Blumrich, who used to run Bushflash.com. Great, hard-hitting stuff, but packaged to get people laughing — and, hopefully, thinking.
I’ve been wondering: Would you be interested in having me post some of your videos to my site?
(If you want to look over my site first, don’t start at the home page; it’s just a directory right now. You might better start here: http://government.moralintelligence.com/wars/iraq-war/a_frittlers_bonanza.php.)
You can use my site’s “Contact Us” link to let me know what you think.
Thank you so much! This is so great to hear. But I hope the tragedies in your life get better. I’m dealing with a lot right now too. Just remember there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Lee, I find you to be absolutely brilliant, witty, and enlightening all at the same time! I’ve been watching your videos tonight, and I cannot express eloquently enough just how powerful your messages to all of us truly are. I am going through some intense personal tragedy in my family right noe, but I felt that I needed to reach out to you and thank you for everything you are doing to educate us all and provoke serious thought about what is really happening in our country.
Why is it that someone who’s been arrested for urinating on a tree can be put on the sex offender registry?
Why did Jeffrey Epstein only receive an 11 month sentence in prison after he molested over 40 children?
Why was Jeffrey Epstein allowed to leave his prison cell on a daily basis so he could fly to New York or fly to his island?
Why hasn’t any journalist questioned Hillary Clinton about Bill’s involvement with Jeffrey Epstein?
I have a burning desire for these questions to be answered but I first must figure out why Mcdonald’s brought back the McRib. I think Mcdonald’s could have done something better than the McRib.
Thanks!! Keep fighting, my friend.
LEE! You are closer to my daughter’s age than mine, but you so often, so completely chrystalize my thoughts on so many topics that I can’t help but feel a real kinship. Keep it up, bro! I’ll stand on milk crates and holler maniacally about you early and often.
I love redacted tonight, but I miss your interviews with interesting people! When can you start adding an interview segment to your show? Interview Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich — they have such deep understanding from the larger perspective, of world events.
This artical Habitat 2 is part of un agenda 21 also on this site should make for hair raising reading. The playbook for the state of the world.god help us all. spread the word thanks terry c. And a thanks to crossroad.to
Dear Lee, I love your work and promote it on social media. I recently wrote a rant in your voice.
Perhaps you’ll get a kick out of it… or maybe you’ll just kick my ass who knows…
“To avert the second Permian Extinction everyone MUST
go vegan for ANY reason, regardless of their motivation,
from the sublime to the skull shatteringly superficial!
Vegans; forget Big Ag, because we’re talk’in the utter extinction of
ALL cows, pigs, fishes, chickens, dogs and cats.
Corporate shit nuggets; ain’t nutth’n gonna cut into your quarter profits like
the complete extinction of all humanity!
So let’s watch “Forks over Knives,” on night one,
“Earthlings” on night two and
stop raping the planet!
Could you do that? Could you do that for me please?
Because being a member of the generation that transformed “Nature Planet” into
a snuff film of global proportions
is just too much of a downer. Really it is. (To be read in the voice of Lee Camp)”
Lee, I see on the Redacted Tonight site you say that your show is not your grandparents news. Apparently, you haven’t read gramps over at The Assassinated Press. Short on tech. Long on fucking with the corporate oligarchy decades before you, Sacks and O’Donnell climbed out of your nappies.
Love your show. No pandering book interviews. No white liberal coddling. No celebrity idolatry. No knee jerk jingoism especially when it comes to US foreign policy. Etc. Keep it up. The show has great potential.
PS: O’Donnell with that face only a mother could love is a hoot.
I’ll check it out!
Hey man some serious crazy stuff just happened in a Debate between congressional candidates in my area of MN – This Guy Rick Nolan a sitting democrat just went spouting that he endorses the Keystone and Sand Piper pipelines because he can remember when the lakes where on fire and there were feces and used condoms on the shore – his logic because lakes are not on fire we can do any amount of polluting we want and clearly we can clean it. Look I am seriously trying to get a message to Lee that there maybe some comedy/social and environmental justice gold here – Check out this debate and find the scene man. There are some major rich polluting dill holes controlling politicians in my area and we need them exposed as psychos as they are trying to make things bad. This Nolan Cat wants to make mining corporations able to damn near suspend democracy to get by epa and public oversight by trying to pass bills that call mines strategic then shorten public comment periods. He is gambling with resources like the great lakes by trying to get sulfide mining to be done on the headwaters of Lake Superior -he is a fan of tarsands and Keystone. Please check out the crazy in this debate – the bit about flaming lakes and condoms is both rich comedy material and frighteningly insane logic.
Love Redacted Tonight (though Moment of Clarity is still my favorite)!
Hey, we are launching Wall Street Cads Against Humanity ahead of the People’s Climate March this weekend, a satire on Cards Against Humanity in which people are encouraged to make their own anti-carbon idiocy cards, display and distribute them over social media and elsewhere. You are the first person I thought of for making up devastatingly witty and on-point stuff. If you have the time and inclination, check out the ones we have done so far and add your own.
Thanks for all of your righteous indignation and keep fighting!
Hey Lee: In the new avengers movie they argue as, super heros, about how they are only in it for personal glory and none of them every helps save starving children, or even creates a save the children charity with all their fame etc., Including Captin America and Superman . There’s also an illuminati scene where Loki tells the kneeling people that they need to be ruled from the illuminati gods which Loki is
Is there an RSS feed for Redacted Tonight? If so, what it is?
I just want to say you are the coolest man. Keep up the fight. We can win this and take our country back! I know we can. I believe in the American people and what the Constitution really means about freedom. Our forfathers were much smarter than we could have ever imagined. Thanks bro.
Come back to Chicago !
Price of membership where I get to call you with my favorite GMO recipes of the month? Willing to pay extra if my GMO induced pharma reduced pill bottle snuggieizer® is mentioned?
Shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes or so. Would $75 cover it?
Thank you for being loud and alive, Lee Camp.
Today you are a finger on the giant hand I’m wishing for to slap the shit out of the idiot herd of complacency. You make me happy.
Contact me for a real discussion on the Venus Project
Hi Lee, I LOVED the one about “Evil People Have Plans.” How often I have thought that, sitting in committee meetings with good-hearted people and doughnuts. Can I get your advice? What’s the LEAST EVIL cell phone company? Unless we all want to go Luddite, we need to know what’s the least evil auto, phone, internet provider, and bank. Have you any input on that? Thanks Muchly.
Your latest MOC video was great. I especially liked the ending scene where the fat soda drinking people came at the White House. You should do a full 5 minutes on that alone. All the cheeseburgers getting in the way, heart attacks, stopping to inject insulin. It’s so incredibly true. We see these headlines about the NSA and PRISM and all these other ABC’s and we get all pissed off and worried, but at the end of the day, make a move that has immediate impact on your own life—stop eating SHIT! You can’t be ACTIVE unless you are ACTIVE! Peace out Lee. Sorry to hear about the show being cancelled in Montreal. Hope to see you sometime in the future.
IMHO you are the best thing on the net at this time. Keep your awesome stream of consciousness dialogue streaming out into the world. Thumbs Up!!
Thanks for fighting all the way in Morocco/China!! And thanks for the support!
Thank you Great Lee Camp!! You are awesome man! You remind me Georges Carlin! Keep fighting, you are inspiring me so much ! I support you from Morocco/China !
Dont give up the fight!
ps: Little hi for the NSA 😉
since theres 244 podcasts, its impossible to scroll to #100 or whatever. how bout a list.
SO excited that inspired you to start speaking out in a funny way. Awesome. So glad. Keep fighting, my friend!
Hey, Lee! saw ya in KC earlier this year (big guy, front row, purple shirt ~_^).. bought the book, and reread it often. Watching you live made me realize that I can entertain and educate at the same time. A week later i performed my first stand up routine. Learning the craft now, and seeking my comedic voice that incorporates truth into the funny. Just wanted to say “whatup” and that you need to come to Columbia, MO. Its a college town with a very active activist (active activists….redundant much?) community. Its also the heart of the beast when it comes to Monsanto, and we could use a bit of yer vitriol.
Keep on Keeping on Fighting
Meh. still get the feeling you somehow do that for money. Its okay, we all in the same boat. At least it might open some eyes on the way to the pay check. keep up the good work Mr.Camp. It’s still better than working for a bank right?
Ok Dear Mr. Lee Camp… one thought: you are the awesomest… then fill in the blankity blank.. seriously nobody can outdo Max… and he had you on his show to do just that.. one in several billion comedians couldn’t make bankers laugh that hard.. the people and even the sheeple will appreciate your missives, messages and the truth.. thanks and keep up the good work.. seriously. peace
I’m spreading and sharing your latest NSA rant—Awesome!
Please watch my Educational, Germanic, Heavy Metal, Anti-Corporate, Death Hate, Metal Rap, Music Video called WE WILL ROCK MONSANTO by Ron Fuller It has gone slightly viral. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, and in Face IT Book-Ron Fuller Monsanto. Thanx
Also, not to be annoying or anything, but i was thinking about it and thought i might as well share the thought.
Unless I don’t understand what you’re doing, you are fighting against the system at large. Which I respect a lot.
I guess that in a fight, one thing that can be considered, is that if you fight against a smart person, you may think they will somehow use your own strength against yourself.
(kung fu style?)
Now bear with me.
I’m a worker, and if I’m considering giving you money ( which is the pain of my life to get, even though i have a good job and it’s only because of it that I’m considering helping you with your project ), it still pisses me off to give it to fight a system which offers you a way to pay you even if you’re trying to destroy it.
To be honest, maybe I’m delusional, but I would think that the pool of people dragged to your show are not the ones likely to go buy some shit just because of the five second of advertisement they saw before skipping it to your show. Now, keep in mind I do hate them commercials. As much as the next guy. But I’d rather make the “effort” of ignoring this little annoyance at the beginning of your show knowing it serves the purpose of making your videos possible, than to work 2 hours in order to send you 50 bucks. To change things, we all have to compromise, and if barely watching an advertisement is one of them, i feel like it could be a lot worse.
Am I a complete asshole for thinking that we can use the system against itself, or does it make any sense at all?
Sorry, it’s not to be an asshole, and i’m not aware of the cost of making a youtube video. Should i assume you do this full time? And you need to buy/rent material? And that’s why you need the money? I find your answer odd. I guess you thought i was being inquisitive when in fact it was curiosity. ( at the same time maybe i see more condescension and impatience in your reply then there actually is ). I woulda apreciated if you had had a few more sentences of patiences towards a person who is at least enough interested in your work to ask a question instead of doing something without knowing why. Weirdly enough, that exact behavior seems to be the one you are shitting on anyways.
So you probably don’t give a shit anymore about it, but my question remains. Im still curious. You need money to pay rent? to buy food? buy equipement? is this your main way to earn money?
Why would I want to be able to afford to keep doing this? Why would I want to be one of the only popular YouTube channels not covered in advertiser bullshit? I find your question odd.
Hey Lee, i accidentally stumbled upon your channel while on my daily video watching dity, and I gotta say I really liked your style. Being a member of the zeitgeist movement for a while now, and also of Daniel Quinn, Jacques Fresco and others, your subjects interested me a lot. I’ve been the guy everyone look at weird because i keep talking about the nonsense around our way of life ( people hardly see what i mean, but i don’t have your talent for expressing myself ) ( side note, im french so im sorry if my sentences are somewhat wrong but i hope the message goes thru ). My only question for you is : why would you ask for donations..?
I would just like to say man, you are an inspiration. You step out and call out the bullshit that most people are too scared to even question. I think your show is awesome. Always look forward to what you have next. Keep it up, man.
Hey Dr, thanks for asking. I see that your email is the at StupidityInstitute.com. What exactly is that? I might have once attended. …To answer your question I graduated fromt he University of Virginia, but I actually think the majority of my education came after that. Some of the books that woke me up were Catch-22 (I reread it after college, when I could appreciate it), 1984, Confessions of An Economic Hitman, anything by Chomsky and anything by Zinn. Democracy Now is probably the only video news I watch on a regular basis. I read Alternet and Truth-Out. I know the Real News Network is also good. Outside of those things, I’m not sure. I just find it from sources and then I make sure I trust them. If you haven’t watched economist Richard D. Wolff, definitely check him out. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was influenced by Carlin. He does his lectures in a stand-up(ish) manner. Hope some of this stuff helps. The most important learning happens outside of school.
You seem to be well-educated, and are obviously intelligent, highly literate, well-read and well-informed.
Could you please tell us something about your educational background (schools, admired teachers, etc.), and perhaps share the sources of information you rely upon (Periodicals, authors, etc.)?
This might help those younger people who aspire to become similarly well-educated critical thinkers, and those of us who constantly pursue our own continuing education.
Thank Lee, Here is a video you might find useful. You may already know of Charles Eisenstein’s work. Cheers! Herb http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEZkQv25uEs&feature=player_embedded&list=PL9330FBEC01584861#!
Totally agree, Herb. We have to have ideas. And we have to band together. Thank you for what you do, especially in a place like Blacksburg. (I grew up in Richmond.)
I just found out about you and appreciate your work very much. Thank you!
This is what we are trying in Blacksburg, Va. http://www.ConviviumNRV.com
I believe when people of conscious goodwill get together with mutual respect, autonomy and fun…..we will have more strength and resources to create the saner world wish to see.
If all the transnational corporate class magically stopped what they are doing tomorrow….the people of goodwill would still need to come together and co-create the better world. It’s not enough to rail against the people doing bad stuff. Most of us are accomplices. We depend on the system and take some enjoyment from it. Eventually, people who are awakening need to get together locally, collaborate and demonstrate viable, working examples of the saner life. Thank you again for your work. Herb
Now as I wrote – I’m enjoying MOC a lot – you are witty and intelligent.
But you can always learn more; the first step to brilliance is knowing that we know nothing.
I would love it if you came to Scandinavia – I believe that you can have a moment of clarity of your own. No I donated ass much as I can to the cause (for now). Pleas do reconsider comming to Copenhagen – I’ll be more than happy to acomodate you Lee.
Bendik Chr. Brinchmann
Oh and I suggest you have Joe Rogan or any Deathsquad people on your podcast. 1) Deathsquad are funny as shit. 2) They and their fans tend to be smart compassionate and open minded. 3) They have a LOT of fans and I think most of them will like your comedy. 4) Since they have a lot of fans, your positive influence will reach a larger demographic.
NOW peace out!
I would totally donate if I didn’t spend all my money on hash. It’s ridiculous how expensive this shit is here in Kuwait. Anyways, I fully support pretty much everything I heard you say. I kinda got annoyed at how little the audience laughed at your jokes in the Zeitgeist media festival. My stomach and facial muscles were in pain from the continuous laughter. Your act was FUCKING AWESOME! I love you man.
For MOC 205 on YouTube, the link to the film & book is incorrect. The correct link to the film & book is http://buy.fourhorsemenfilm.com/
I have been sitting here with a friend just listening and absorbing MOC…you are now part of my consciousness, which I have no complaints about…more people should let you in 🙂 I do however want to know when you will grace Boston with your presence? I want to come see you live…this is not enough for me…not nearly enough…please come to Boston…ya know…like the song…only you don’t have to stay, unless you want to, cause ya know, you’re always welcome to…anyway yeah…love ya as always
re: Jim W’s contemplation of dumping his cable TV and spending that money on a Lee Camp membership instead: My advice, from experience? Go for it, Dude! – you won’t regret it.
I got fed up with television in 1971 and threw my TeeVee set in a garbage can.
It felt so G-o-o-o-d! Still does.
As near as I can tell, so far I haven’t missed anything (with the possible exception of seeing Lee Camp on Fox News). If there is anything else that I missed (I doubt it), let me know. (Not that it’ll persuade me to go out and buy one.)
I think you’re right. I just didn’t want to overreach. But yeah, I’m pretty sure you’re right.
Dear mr Lee Camp,
i have been enjoying your moc’s for some time now, thank you.
with regards to moc#173, did i hear you say that ows is the 1st global protest of your lifetime? i think it is unprecedented, if i’m right, well that’s kind of a big deal, the 1st global protest of anyones lifetime. take it easy.
From one Camp to another, good luck with the Sept. 16 concert.
Sorry about that. You can email me at LeeCampMail@gmail.com and I’ll tell you how to do it.
Great work, but I looked around on the website, and I might have been in a hurry and missed it, but I didn’t see anything that said you can send a money order. I hate Google, GMail, Twitter and Facebook, because they all track you, so I avoid them ( and there are alternatives to each one of the things I mentioned). I also avoid credit cards. When there’s an ethical credit card company, I’ll get one. Until then I’d like to donate but could you make a method available for anti-credit card and anti-PayPal fans? Thanks
What a coup, Paul Krassner! I was a young, Viet-Nam war (excuse me “conflict”) supporter when I discovered The Realist and marijuana. Both were due to my Russian language tutor who I thank daily. Thanks, Lee, for an insightful and though-provoking episode. Loved it!
Mr. Camp your voice is new yet the words are all too familiar…knowing that someone like you is standing strong at the front lines gives me hope for the future. Between the insight and comical sarcasm your MOC brings i cannot wait for the next.
Much love and respect from a weary and indebted man
Thank you so much, Teemu. Glad to see Finland is finally getting some clarity.
Thanks for listening!
Hello Mr. Camp, greetings from Finland!!
Just want you to know that your voice is heard. I love your work and definitely going to be a member for now.
Ha, seriously, it’s all cooking shows and cop shows. And all of the reality bullshit is faked anyway. Why would we watch reality shows when they aren’t fucking real?? It’s absolutely insane! So thank you for your support. I think you just gave me an idea for a future MOC.
I look forward to listening to your show when I am on my hour drive to school each day. When you don’t have shows on I turn the radio off and listen to my broken muffler, it is much more soothing than the advertisements that public radio shoves down your throat with an occasional same rock song they been playing for the past decade. I will become a member soon, hopefully while you are still offering the CD, but a little tight right now. If my wife would let me I would just cancel the cable and send some of that money to you since your show has brought more worth while information in the past six months than the cable has given me in the past 6 years, I enjoy television, but it seems to me that they quite trying to make good shows and just keep adding new cop shows to remind us that we need more power over us because of the psychopaths on the street, that and they don’t need any meaningful plots they just reenact the shit on the news. Love the show, keep up the good work.
Thank you for your thoughts. You seem like a wonderful person, and one I would like to know. I have been outspoken on message boards that I do not agree with Ron Paul. A) I believe in evolution. B) I’m no libertarian. I believe the government can be used for good. I believe that we must work together to care for each other. I am very philosophically different from Ron Paul on certain issues. That being said, I agree that he is more credible than anybody else on the GOP debate stage.
Hello Lee Camp,
Thanks for adding some much needed humor to the lives of the populace. I’m confident that your popularity will continue to rise and a plethora of new doors will be opened to you. Choose wisely and stay true to your conscience.
Since your an activist you are probably already aware of whitehouse.gov/we the people. There are several petitions posted including one on behalf of the occupy wallstreet campaign. On a philosophical note, it is extremely important for humanity to maintain our inalienable rights. In order to do that we must believe in creation or a higher power than humans. The humanist movement pushed with the current meme of evolution would have us believe that we are all animals. If widely accepted that would allow the governments of the world to dictate what rights it will allow its citizens to have. Also, I agreed with your assessment of the GOP candidates with the lone exception of one Rep/Dr. Ron Paul. If you do a little backround research on him you might realize how brilliant , credible, and consistent his message for liberty has been.
Anyways, I hope you continue to verbally attack the financial terrorists and corporate whore media. Somehow, maybe you can help get people of all types to focus animosities on the Federal Reserve Banksters.
Hey Dude, Thanks for the words of support! The song is called “Paradox” and is by Devilz Speciez – he has a bunch of great stuff. You can find him on YouTube.
What’s the title of the song that is played at the start of your “Moment of Clarity” videos.
Oh and Kudos for your work. You have my support and respect.
Keep up the brilliant artwork.
Never a better compliment has been given. Thank you.
You are either the poison or cure for our bankrupt, corrupt, rat fucking society. Keep hitten em where it counts.
Thanks Marcy! Love your music. Keep fighting.
You’re AWESOME — keep it up, man! Please find a way to get in touch with Keith Olbermann, as he should create a political comedy show for Current TV and let you run it.
And thanks for telling me to keep doing my edgy political standup even though my act sometimes goes over the audience’s head. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Dear Moderator – I do not see on the abouve where it shows my web site. Would you please put under my sign-off “ME” http://www.AmericansWithPitchforks.com? Thank you.
YOU da MAN!
I am adding your video rant found at http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/1130.html to my web site.
I want YOU, please, to STUDY my web site.
Because it is THEE TOOL that combined with the energy of just a few of the American People will bring us back to the Original Intent of our Founders.
MISSION STATEMENT: To enable and to empower the American Folk to network
amongst themselves at their local political level; at the local geographical
venue so the American People will have the kind of society they want;
so the American People will have the kind of government they want.
I hope you take this request serious.
I don’t know squat about your ‘day job’, but I know you are dead-on with understanding the problem.
I am asking you to help share the solution.
Yours in Freedom,
