NEW FROM BRENT JOHNSON: The Presumption of Innocence

on .

by Brent Johnson

The world has literally become an insane asylum, where basic values have been turned upside-down, wrong has become right, and lies are treated as truth.

In today’s world, almost all governments are acting like dictators, viewing their citizens as subjects who must obey the despotic edicts of frequently unelected individuals who seek to rule the world, or at least their small portion of it.

Whatever the power-hungry tyrants want is declared to be the truth, even though it is a lie.  The world exists in a constant state of emergency in which the people are told they must sacrifice their freedoms to accommodate the emergency state of affairs that exists.  The world is ruled by emergency powers, and authoritarian dictates are enforced by unlawful mandates imposed on ordinary people by frequently unelected individuals.

One of the most significant casualties of this insane behavior is the individual right to be presumed innocent unless proven guilty, which was made an integral part of the American justice system after the extensive abuses perpetrated against the people by the government of old England.  This fundamental right has all but been discarded in favor of the presumption of guilt that today attaches to everyone.  In the Fascist Police States of Amerika, the police are actually trained to regard everyone as guilty of something, thereby justifying whatever they choose to do when they interact with an individual.

Terrorist cops have been caught on video throwing innocent women out of their cars and onto the public highways just because the woman did not immediately obey the cop’s “orders”.  Judges run their courtrooms on the assumption that everybody is guilty of something and so it is acceptable to manufacture reasons to render a guilty verdict, regardless of the evidence (or lack thereof) in the given matter.

Media publish or broadcast allegations or even just suggestions that someone may be guilty of some crime and the general public pounces on that as an opportunity to judge and sentence the individual, who may be completely innocent of the supposed crime.  Never mind innocence… just treat them all as guilty.  This is the attitude of media, government and by extension, the general public in today’s insane world.

William Blackstone, after whom numerous legal treatises and books that are regarded as foundational to the American system of law are named, stated, “It is better to have ten guilty people go free than to incarcerate one innocent person.”

Thomas Jefferson considered it better to let 100 guilty people go free than to deprive one person of his or her freedom.  The American system of jurisprudence is founded and based on the presumption that everyone is innocent until and unless he or she is proven guilty by a preponderance of evidence and/or witness testimony.

This means that everyone is to be treated as innocent in every circumstance unless there is actual evidence that an individual is guilty of some crime.  The presumption it always that the person is innocent.

However, in today’s twisted world, the presumption is almost always that the person is guilty of whatever he (or she) is accused of doing.  This means the court system is both impotent and incompetent to render justice.

In America, plea bargains are the norm.  If someone is arrested for a crime - any crime - the prosecutor will threaten the accused party with outrageous and dire consequences - life in prison, death, losing parental rights, etc. - unless he or she agrees to plead guilty to a lesser crime.  Most people are afraid of the government and therefore will agree to any plea bargain that does not result in incarceration.  This results in the “justice” system notching another guilty verdict on its belt; another guilty verdict that means both the system is “working” and that everyone is actually guilty of something.

Both media and government will then promote the manipulated statistics to reflect that we have a terrible crime problem and that the government is doing an effective job at combatting it.

Meanwhile, the foundational presumption of innocence is left to wither away and die, which is just what the tyrants who seek to control everyone want.  They established a self-justifying cycle.  This is an incessant problem that is horribly destructive to individual liberty and fundamental rights.

If we are to reclaim our land as a place where individual rights are respected and the Rule of Law reigns supreme, then we need to start by regarding all people as innocent until and unless they are proven guilty.  Once proven guilty, it is appropriate to impose just punishment on the guilty parties.  However, it is equally if not more important that we start out assuming that all parties - regardless of the accusation - are innocent.

Only with the presumption of innocence do we have any chance of restoring our land to a place where there is truly Justice for All; where we build the world into a planet where the fundamental rights of all people are respected by everyone, and especially respected by the government.

The next time you read, hear or watch a story about someone who is accused of some crime, ask yourself if you have actually seen the evidence supporting the accusation.  If you have not seen such evidence, then remember that the accused party is always considered to be innocent.  Do not be swayed by the presentation by media and/or government that implies that the party is guilty.  Stand true and strong under the presumption of innocence, even in the face of public pressure to find the accused party guilty.

Your role as an American - or any freedom loving individual - is to force the government to prove its claims rather than jump on the guilty-by-assumption bandwagon because so many other people are doing it, too.

You are the watchdog of justice in America or anywhere else where in the world where individual freedom is valued.  You are also the watchdog of justice in countries where the government trods on individual rights and personal liberty, because if you do not stand up for freedom, then nobody else will.

Each of you is an Arbiter of Freedom.  That is a precious and invaluable role that we all share.  You each must display the character to stand against those who seek to destroy the presumption of innocence and replace it with their insane, deranged and tyrannical efforts to rule the world.

A senior citizen drove his brand-new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little gray hair he had left. "Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-94, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rearview mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."

The older gentleman paused. Then he said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a State trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."

"Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.

Patriot Michael Badnarik dies at 68!

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night!

August 15, 2022 - My name is Michael Badnarik, and apparently, I am dead.  I am not communicating with you from “the great beyond”.  I merely had the foresight to write this while I was still a viable consciousness, and I asked a friend of mine to post this to my website for me after I was gone.  This gives me the opportunity to write my OWN eulogy.

If you knew me while I was still warm, you probably noticed that I lived my life by MY rules, and never allowed someone else to dictate what my values were going to be.  Now would be a good time to cue Frank Sinatra’s “I did it my way”, which I frequently sang in the shower.  It disappoints me to think that this quality made me so unique.  I encourage everyone to stop being so submissive, especially to nonsensical government edicts.  In short, grow up and “grow a pair”.

The things that I hope I am remembered for are my honesty and integrity.  I often told people, “Don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to.”  It never helps anything to be in denial.  My father was a role model for integrity, and my experience in Scouts reinforced the idea that a truly good and respectable man was someone who was trustworthy.  I tried very hard never to make promises I couldn’t keep, and I definitely never made any idle threats.  Most people could tell by the look in my eyes that I was more than willing to carry out the “negative reinforcement” that I was promising.

From an early age my life was one adventure after another.  Scuba diving, sailing, mountain climbing, white water canoeing and rafting.  Don’t forget skydiving, but that came later.  I was lucky enough to go through life without much fear of anything.  Keep in mind that fear is a symptom of ignorance.  If you are afraid, the simple solution is to learn as much as you can about that subject.  When you know what you are doing, the fear simply goes away.

RIP Patriot Michael Badnarik

Noted broadcast journalist and freedom fighter John Stadmiller dies at 75!

on .

ROUND ROCK, Texas (PNN) - November 5, 2021 - Legendary radio presenter and founder of the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN) and the National Intel Report, John Stadtmiller, died November 5, 2021, after a courageous battle with a respiratory illness and a suspected massive heart attack.

Internationally recognized veteran broadcaster, investigative journalist, entrepreneur and successful business owner John Stadtmiller has been featured as a prominent figure of the Truth Movement, and the godfather of hard hitting truth radio. Many have attributed his  success to him being at the innovative forefront of viral media, a process that began right at the start of his radio network in 2004. One of America’s first true radio trailblazers, John Stadtmiller has given radio broadcasting a transition from the corporate model of the 20th Century to the independent model of the 21st Century.

As a dedicated and aggressive constitutionalist, Stadtmiller consistently defended the Bill of Rights, property rights, and our nation’s borders. In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, Stadtmiller passionately argued against foreign entanglements and wars for the sake of corporate and banking interests. Stadtmiller avoided the bogus political labels of “Left and Right” and instead focused on what really matters - what’s right and wrong. As a tenacious journalist, Stadtmiller broke thousands of national stories over the span of his career, a feat that made him one of the frontrunners in alternative media. Stadtmiller’s mission to re-ignite the spirit of 1776 and stand as an example of the fact that one man can build a vocal media platform without the aid of big corporate news networks that only serve to compromise and dilute the core message of freedom and liberty stands as his professional legacy, and an inspiration to us all.

His family has requested privacy during this time of mourning. Nevertheless, we cannot and will not forget John, and as a final tribute to him, we must continue sharing the truth about globalist tyranny, and continue the resistance. John Stadtmiller, Rest in Peace!

L. Neil Smith has died!

By Rylla Smith

FORT COLLINS, Colorado (PNN) - September 5, 2021 - L
ester Neil Smith III, novelist and political commentator, gunsmith and musician, visionary and futurist, passed away on Friday, August 27 at Poudre Valley Hospital after a lengthy battle with heart and kidney disease. He was 75 years old.

A long-time resident of Fort Collins, Colorado, Neil was born on May 12, 1946 at Mercy Hospital in Denver, Colorado to Maj. Lester N. Smith II and Marie L. Coveleskie Smith.

Neil, known in the world of science fiction as L. Neil Smith or, affectionately, “El Neil,” is survived by his beloved wife, Cathy L.Z. Smith, his daughter, Rylla C. Smith, his brother Roger L. Smith, his nephews Nolan and Travis, and his aunt, Barbara Ohlwiler, as well as countless friends and brothers-in-arms. He was preceded in death by his mother and father.

Neil’s life was one spent perpetually looking forward - toward the future of freedom, of technology, of the continuation of the evolution of the human body, mind, and spirit, and toward the endless sea of stars. As a child, he wanted to be a marine biologist, to discover the unknown in the depths of the seas; this translated naturally in his young adulthood to a thirst for knowledge of the far greater unknown beyond the shores of this world.

Neil had an avid interest in the politics of personal liberty and always stood for what he believed to be right. He had a passion for friendly debate and never shied away from speaking his mind.

In the late 1970s, he wrote the first of his many novels, The Probability Broach, which began a long and prolific career in the burgeoning world of liberty-oriented science fiction, and was the creator of the Prometheus Award, as well as the recipient of the 2016 Special Prometheus Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Memorial services will be held in Fort Collins, Colorado, on a date yet to be determined; for more information, please follow Neil’s memorial page on or contact Rylla Smith at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

"Yet, what is bravery but the capacity to reject our fears, ignore and suppress them,
then go on to do whatever it is we are afraid to do."
- L. Neil Smith
