 October 25, 2020


The original of this article/letter was addressed to Jo Jorgensen, the candidate for president of the Libertarian Party.  The last few days has revealed significant information on the ethics and intentions of both Jo, her campaign staff and of the National Libertarian Party. 

First, we need to take up a question which has likely never occurred to you. 

The Libertarian Party was intended to advocate for the free-market when it was founded.  Advocacy does not end with a mention – but otherwise, the Libertarian Party has done nothing which faintly resembles advocacy for the free-market.  

If it had done so, today  we would have made massive changes in how Americans view government; Americans would have experienced the choice to choose, building a transition from government to a multitude of choices offering what they really wanted and needed.  This is a free-market delivering an economy based on the advice of Dr. Milton Friedman, “If the only thing certain in business (life) is uncertainty, then we should base our financial systems on uncertainty.”

A free-market works best when it does not have to maneuver around government.  To activate choice, a free-market calls for a financial tool which accounts for the erratic nature of our lives and incomes, providing the safety net for those events which make our incomes erratic.  These erratic incomes are what cause most of the problems confronting us, as people, today.  We have been hammered into believing we need protection, and we do.  Protection from those who use government to limit, manage, and intimidate us into accepting their orders.  Once, 85% of Americans were small business owners and operators.  They involved their kids in their businesses and their kids went on to run businesses themselves.  They understood, as an elemental truth, how the free-market works. 

We have a financial tool which delivers a free-market alternative for all

major purchases, providing exactly what Dr. Friedman called for.  This alternative, Percentage As You Earn, provides a safety net, which generates a profit for lenders, lowers the costs to all of those involved, and delivers universal prosperity. Today, 85% of Americans are employees.  We can reverse this.  See Percentage as You Earn, Financing & Finansurance  Watch the PowerPoint

Dr. Friedman endorsed our efforts.  See Experts

How do we do this?  We just DO it.  We have invested years in solving the problems we saw growing.  Investors, now worried about the instability of the dollar, can invest in the future %PAYEments from borrowers.  Just to let you know, the repayment record of these loans, 400 years of records and studies, showed the default rate even at the beginning of the colonial period was so small it was hard to calculate; less than .01% over the lifetime of the loans.  Today, the default rate on large purchase loans with Rigid Installment Payments (RIPs) are routinely 24% in any downturn.

We are not waiting for permission, a license, or validation from a bureaucrat.  These are investments, with contracts to protect both parties – and they are %PAYE Finansured for both parties, this calculated into the amortization for the loan. 

The free-market is the lynch-pin between ideology and effective action for freedom.  The time for books, studies, and symposiums is over, for the moment. 


 Political action by Libertarians has been running for 50 years. 

Care to show me the freedom produced?  Tough job - there might be enough to fill a thimble. See graphic to the right.  

Political action, elections, cannot produce freedom or a free-market.  End of Story.  Political campaigns, however, can be useful for demonstrating solutions to the real problems we face or repealing laws and taxes, providing transition to the free-market from confiscatory programs, designed to steal from Americans, for instance Social Security.  We look so good compared to politicians.

In 1811, the Sons of Liberty, which was founded in 1765 in preparation for the war they knew would come, met and reconstituted itself as the

The Improved Order of Red Men.  This was the first fraternal order in the colonies. You will remember the Sons of Liberty for the role they played in the Boston Tea Party.  It was the same organization, then the Redmen, who provided the relief to Galveston in 1900, devastated by a hurricane, and also provided to its members a list of member benefits which included a percentage of income from the member to pay for retirement and medical expenses, similar only with the charging method, with what you call Social Security, today.  FDR was a Redmen member and ‘borrowed’ the idea converting it to a program for confiscating money from Americans.

In 1918, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks wrote a check for $1,000,000 to the Federal government to pay for the first hospital for Veterans. 

Medical care for all people is ONLY possible through the free-market because government steals to much for us to afford this otherwise.

The problems confronting Americans today.

81% of Americans are worried about foreclosure or eviction.

One in six Americans will have their vehicle repossessed each year. (And many Americans are now struggling to keep their jobs while living in those cars)


Health Care – Our money is eaten up in managing and intimidating us. See Health Portal TV


Do you think offering health & medical care for all in the free-market would be a winning platform? Percentage As You Earn (%PAYEment) Mutual Medical Finansurance finances treatment of pre-existing conditions, risk insurances, and Personal income improvement investments (Piii), the latter because your IronWoman Suit costs 3% extra. While Trump declares executive orders to force pre-existing conditions; the Supreme Court is pondering so-called Rigid Installment Premium (RIP) Unaffordable Care Act penalties or taxes and mandate; and Biden wants to be a single-payer fuehrer; you make all that unnecessary. How? The inclusive problem for the “poor” is solved for all on 2-way TV sign-ups in finansured groups of 10,000 using the same medical statistics as the whole nation -- for what people both need and want.

You ask why people would vote for you over tyranny? Answer, only because all you left politicians with, is their tax gun, by solving the problem.


Wildfires in California – Lost lives, hundreds of Billions in re-insurance losses and hundreds of thousands of people suddenly made homeless. And where are the WATER BOMBERS? The fire agencies, pretending to do a job, fooled the insurance industry who neglected to have them built – even though we told them over and over again this was coming starting eight years ago.  It is the reinsurance companies which should be paying to build these to lower their risk for loss.  We have found an aerospace company for producing the needed colossal bombers.  See


See Weather or Not You Survive, the show


Affordable Housing – When I say ‘affordable’, I mean using materials and building technologies which produces homes, businesses and infrastructure which are fire-proof, flood-proof, and have longevity (over 1,000 years), and costs 75% LESS than construction today, and is ready for use in a few days, longer if you want a two-story house.  One of the reasons we need to stay active politically, is to repeal building codes which continue to mandate the use of obsolete technologies and materials, which will burn and need repairs, creating a steady stream of income for the companies which use lobbyists to retain obsolete materials and technologies.  


If you blowtorch this material, made from all natural non-polluting and easily accessible resources, it might after several hours melt, but it will not burn.  Due to the changes from existing conditions in the areas impacted, the strategy of Adjustment to Climate Change should be followed. 


This will require infrastructures to act as fire breaks and debris flow channels where fires can be expected,  floods often follow these fires -- do not cause further deaths and damage. 


Our builder, who invented the material, has several versions which all work in the same way to construct bridges, overpasses, dams, and homes.  He is eager to show you these.  More information will be available after our shows on WLIT begin airing. 


We plan to showcase these (GICCI) materials being for houses built from specifications from customers.  We will show the customer how to sign up for a %PAYE Loan online, for a less expensive house the same way they pay percentages of their income every month for other services.  Demonstrations take place on one of our launching TV shows, which also provide solutions to other problems we now face, including restoring our soil, and growing locally to lower the cost of transport.


Energy use for heating and cooling, is largely eliminated in GICCI™ construction.


 The idea of moving to sustainability, meaning action taken in hopes of reducing the rise in temperature, can be attempted.  But adjustment to changed conditions must happen immediately to reduce deaths and minimize the impact of rising temperatures, as we carry out these plans. 


In our studies we concluded California, Oregon and Washington would experience a drop in population due to relocation of present residents to other parts of the country.  This has already begun to happen.  Coupled with the economic impact of COVID-19, we can also predict the changed practices of business will also lead to depopulation by migration from cities.  Cities were useful as hubs for business. These functions are now being carried out from home offices and by other internet and forms of media. 


Food production will also change, becoming more localized in response to health concerns, along with the cost of transport and packaging. These shifts in production will also be a subject on our Interactive TV shows.  


With what we have planned with Interactive 2-Way Mass Audience Participation TV,  Jo, you could win if you dump Michael and Carla and let us brief you for the many hours of 1 to 1 Presidential Debate Tourney rounds we have planned, out-competing the DemoPublicans.  We will be launching other shows as well, all using nearly 40 other ways to interact.  And for Debate Tourney, all other candidates have already been briefed.  Say hello.


Millions of dollars of discounted and non-censorship satellite TV, some cable, and streaming to and from devices, has been offered you daily for months.  So why do you continue to beg the DemoPublicans for the use of their 2 hours of time and stage?  With enough debate rounds, we can rival their ratings. 


More importantly, we can solve all these problems – and more.  Why would an American, left, right or Other, vote for the Tempestuous Two?  Not that we have any illusions we can trust either of the present MSM Dem. GOP candidates.  WLIT 1:1 and FiTNA media alliance will debate with you if you just let them during this last month.  


However, we will again invite Trump and Biden to participate in our Debates, as we did all 67 Libertarian Party candidates, including yourself. These are debates for some of the tenacious, hardy, and determined candidates who filed to run for president in 2019 - 2020 – but were ignored by the Mainstream Media, all 1,150 of them.  Full Information on Candidates  60 responded.


If we solve those problems, do you think those who provide the solutions could be elected to office?  The answer is YES!  Would it matter if they were elected?  No, because we will have put down the foundations for sustainable economy for all people.  However, we have elected two dark horses to the presidency previously using this media strategy. We will also be on our way to a sustainable relationship with the natural world – of which we are a part.


This is a plan for solving each of these problems and showing you resources you would have had months ago, if you had ever responded to our multiple communications. 


Never has a Libertarian candidate for president faced this potential for break-through. The office of President has been overstated from that of administrator for the Executive branch far too long.  Transitioning away from government takes us back to the original mission, the one stated in the Declaration of Independence.  


Government was to be small and do only what we could not see how to do in any other way.  Now, we can achieve that.  See


Every time you criticize government, you will have a clearly spelled out

free-market solution to which we can transition.  Voters will love this.    And you can tell people who need a job, why not start your own business instead, using a %PAYE loan.  In every place where you say, “bring the troops home”, for instance Central Asia, you can get American business trade treaties to compete with the Chinese Communists’ trade treaties – to build GICCI™ water/oil/gas pipelines, freeways and harbors in the free-market.


Our delivery system blasts through the Mainstream Media as these antiquated technology relics crumble, and those working for them scramble to sign up to work for us. 



Our delivery tool is Women Leading Interactive TV Network (WLIT) 


You probably did not realize TV as you knew it as a child, or even as an adult, is dying.  As with all businesses, this is revealed on the Bottom Line.  Losing money is the death knell for all long-established businesses as that here under discussion, 1-Way propaganda TV, such as the CPD.  In this case do not bother sending flowers.  Statistics PowerPoint



Some of WLIT shows, ready to be produced, are below. Others can be viewed on the landing page/website for coming attractions.  Interactive aids include chatrooms/groups which can be set up by participants for purposes such as further discussion and dialog within specific areas.


The first shows we are launching are designed to familiarize Americans who have not been involved in gaming with our technologies, which are similar.  Our later shows will increase the applications from these technologies. 



Debate Tourney – Where the real Debates Take Place.  All Debates will be Tournament, using College Rules modified for the audience to create opportunities for asking questions of the candidates several times during the debate program time of 47 minutes during the debate hour including intro, commercials and instruction on phonevoting.    

There will be a standard format.  There are three categories for debate.  For each Hour Debate the two candidates agree on one of these three categories of subjects to be taken up.  These are: 1) Economic Vision,2) Foreign Policy 3) Environmental & Cultural, Legal and De-legalization Leadership.

 A candidate can lose or win in each of the three category tracks and choose to debate with a focus in one category, if he or she so chooses.  Candidates decide the order in which these topics will be taken up for the initial three debates.   If the candidates can't agree, the first candidate who registered for the debates makes the choice.  At the beginning of the debate, candidates will be asked to provide their solutions to the problems the audience has named relevant to the topic, along with their Opening Statement.

 It is doubtful either Donald Trump or Joe Biden would survive a first debate.  They will fade as Americans understand their real options for solutions.


American Referendum – Where you dialog with others on issues, explore the facts, sound out, determine what issues need solving, and get the truth tallied up at your request.









Earth Path Defense - We have also taken into account the issue of asteroid impacts on Earth.  This will be funded through the free-market as a TV show.  You can be part of the solution through the show, and by joining and earning money by assisting thousands of others in solving the problem!



Congressional Clearing House – Most Americans have a vague idea about what Congresspersons do.  CCH is a place where the audience can post solutions in videos, charts, graphs now impossible to send using Congress’s text boxes or to staffers’ emails. For the last 19 years, Congress has been incommunicado from the American people.  CCH will be the interface.  CCH allows them to drill down and understand every part of what goes on in Congress, both houses, and most especially with their own Senators and Congresspersons. 

Monitoring their actions provides useful information for more responsive representation. 


Weather or Not You Survive

Eco-Emergency Alert is your tool for protecting yourself, your family, and your neighborhood. Using 23 Big Databases Dave Lincoln created an app which you can use to understand, in detail, the risks you face today.  Most of these are invisible to your eyes but still threaten your life and health. Survival is becoming very directly a matter of the choices we make as individuals, and for risk-information and liability citing those responsible is essential. will use the format of a weather show but merge in these other threatening events using as a tool David Lincoln’s app, which better provides information on escaping wildfires and other threats, Eco-Emergency Alert.  The downloaded app is now available on Android for $9.99.  We are looking for an app sponsor.

Health Portal - Mentioned above, Health Portal TV provides the means with genuine economic incentives for preventive care and curative care, which is affordable at any moment in time.  This escapes the corporate subsidy hospital and pharma-governmental complex dominant in 65% of medicine today. Health care is provided to members within Cooperative %PAYE Groups with 10,000 or more members.  These are organized by long-trusted, community-based groups such as churches, fraternal orders, and other organizations preferred by members, or sign-ups on computers attracted to by TV to Health Portal TV.

By using our modern media tools, we create tools hammering out solutions available to people for action and organizing while providing the needed financial tools for sustainable investing and borrowing.  In this way, each of us can obtain a financial safety net without holes. 

The candidate who best represents these solutions has the best chance of being elected. 


Good health and happiness to you in Liberty,

An Open Letter to Dan Fishman


Hi Dan,

This is an open letter, which will be published widely. 

I have known Michael Emerling (his born name) Cloud (the name he began using when the name Emerling became MUD the first time) since 1978.  It took many incidents of discovered dishonesty along with other behavior even more egregious than simple lies for me to entirely withdraw trust.  Emerling is a practiced liar.  How would I know he is not lying to you or has gulled some credulous soul to do so on his behalf? 

Emerling worked through Howell for years.  This was either tolerated or enabled by those hired or elected to positions of power in the LP.

My question is: Why is he doing this?  Could it be for the money generated by the campaigns – or is the motive to ensure no campaign uses the media tools which would make it possible to break through the MSM?

I think that is the more likely answer. 

I looked over your own background briefly and it appears your background does not include any use of TV media. Computers, yes, media, no.   No one in a position of management in the LP appears to possess such knowledge.

No Libertarian Presidential campaign from 1992 on has used satellite and other distribution to television. No acknowledgement was every received, with one exception, of the proposals for Interactive TV sent, often several times and to every person at the National Office. Why is that? Radio seems to be too much for the LP to cope with, too.  Individual libertarians use radio – but not the Libertarian Party.  Why?


Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Melinda Pillsbury-Foster and I am CEO of Freedom Interactive TV Networks, Association, inc.  See my Linkedin featured document FiTNA’s 62  Tasks and Task Teams to create Interactive TV.  This is an alliance of the most power and independent media and tech companies around.  Surprise, they do not like censorship. Our board includes three people either in the TV industry now, or who have worked in TV.  These are Robert Starling, Lance C. Williams, and Brock d’Avignon (scroll down to his resume). 

Daniel “Brock” d’Avignon received his education at BYU from such experts as Tad Danieleski, Immediately after graduating with a combined major in Organizational Communications & PR, and a minor in Film & TV Production, d’Avignon produced ten of the segments for Housing the American Dream in 1988, the original now copied widely by others, including This Old House.

Combined, our board has about 200 years of TV experience. 

In 1992 Brock was back and forth from Orange County to the Keystone Satellite Communications studio on Sunset Blvd., working on the newly launched, PhoneVoter TV Network.

Rodney King - 1992

On May 1, 1992, the Los Angeles Police brought out Rodney King to speak to the rioters then attacking businesses and setting fires in Los Angeles.  King had something he wanted to say.

Brock d’Avignon was alone in the Keystone TV Studio on Sunset Blvd., watching smoke rising, and vehicles burning through the window.  The employee normally there had asked him to stand in for ‘just a few minutes’.  Standing at the master control panel for 22 networks nation-wide, Brock knew exactly what was happening in LA and across the country.

Risk comes in many kinds.  If he took 22 TV networks offline and cut commercials Keystone would be docked $22,500 for each one missed; he could also lose the uplinker, costing $500k.  Watching intently, the moment King opened his mouth to speak Brock took 22 networks offline; Rodney King was live, speaking to all Americans. 

Brock’s Degree is in Organizational Communications and Public Relations with a minor in TV & Film Production and Screenwriting conferred by BYU December 1984. 

From 1986 – 1987 Brock directed 10 of 21 episodes for Housing the American Dream, the first TV show to build a mass-audience - around the rebuilding of a 1910 pioneer mansion, reclaimed from demolition in Sandy, Utah.  This Old House copied the show format.

Brock knew TV could provide interaction; people, enabled to communicate, could move America toward freedom and free markets.

His first political show began January 21, 1992; with some fellow libertarians, PhoneVoter TV Network was founded in Santa Ana, CA.  By May 1st, services were being provided to four presidential candidates.  Brock was at Keystone prepping for a PhoneVoter TV Network interview with one of candidate Jerry Brown’s campaign managers.

Brock watched both King, as he opened his mouth to speak; Brock hit the button; 22 stations across the country were broadcasting King’s short statement.  Then, King said twice, “Can’t we all just get along?”   Brock hit the switch, returning to the regular schedule.

Brock knows his way around TV; he also understands Interactive technologies.  He just does not brag about what he has done. 

The Libertarian Party & Media

So, why has no one from the Libertarian Party expressed any interest in responding to our proposals for using television to win campaigns for the last 28 years? 

Print media is the horse and wagon in comparison to television; what we grew up with as TV is now silent films compared to what is coming with Interactive 2-Way Mass Audience Participation TV.  Think Fortnite for Activists. 

I’m sure you can see why this is perplexing for us.  Back to Emerling. 

Beginning at least a year ago, Emerling begin looking for a candidate for the nomination who would, reliably, allow him to control the narrative.  I know he was, because I received a call from a woman named Anne, who asked me, rather breathlessly, what I would do if I knew Craig Franklin, my former husband, was going to run for president.  I immediately told her that, in that case, Emerling was looking for a candidate so he could manage the campaign.  She also asked what I would do.  I told her.  She said, “Oh, in that case, he will not run.”  I responded that this would be wise of him. 

And, you wonder, what would I do?  I will do better than tell you, I will show you what I do to individuals when I discover they lie to obtain goals which violate the well-being of others, especially when those individuals are children.  Craig Franklin, I discovered to my horror, only after he left me, is a sexual pervert whose fantasies revolve around raping little girls about 8 - 12 years old who have come to trust him and call him, 'Daddy'.  And I had married this man and let him adopt all of my children.  I would find out through Anne and another party that after his son, Jonathan Scott Franklin was arrested for hiring a hitman to kill his wife, his first call was to his attorney, who he demanded get him unsupervised visitation to his 8-year old grand-daughter.  

I contacted Scott's estranged wife and sent a declaration to the court, informed by Kathy she was fighting him having unsupervised visitation.  Children cannot give informed consent.  If you are a libertarian and disagree, tough.  

Notice that Craig is not a candidate for president. No FEC filing took place for any of the variations he uses for his name.   

Michael went looking for another candidate.  As you admitted, Emerling was associated with the Jorgensen campaign a year ago, likely at the time she decided to run.  Jo first filed to run for the office of president of the United States on August 19, 2019.  

Personally, I think the likely explanation for Emerling’s continued attention to the LP is money being paid to him to limit LP effectiveness.  Through Craig, Emerling is connected to the same people who put George W. into office with underhanded manipulations.  Nothing Emerling has ever done points in any other direction.  The last 28 years of Libertarian Party action has been curiously unproductive for freedom; that is an understatement.  We have lost ground in every direction. 

Is Emerling the only cause?  Likely not, but he is significant in this.  It is likely Emerling is a psychopath.  And his activities in the Libertarian Party included eliminating activists he thought might be wary enough to see through him.  I would likely have been one of these.  But another activist he eliminated was Tamara Clark.  

Tamara would have been elected to the State Senate in Nevada, 2nd District Seat but for the mysterious arrival of 30,000 absentee ballots, more than had ever before been cast in this way.  Reason wrote an article on this occurrence in 1993 titled, Fouled Out?  by Charles Oliver.

Did Emerling have something to do with this?  He might have.  He was also behind 

 Now, The Saga of PhoneVoter TV Network

In 1992, a stunning event took place which political pundits could not explain, though they babbled a lot, and tried.

1992 was the year when the most credible candidates from the Democratic Party declined to seek their party’s nomination.  Additionally, an outsider, a cranky businessman, H. Ross Perot, emerged as a creditable threat to sitting President George H. W. Bush before the primaries. 

Independent of the Perot Campaign, which effectively did not exist and was not being funded by Perot, but paid for by a group of grass-roots people who identified themselves as Owners of America, Inc., who began selling Capitol Calling Cards for $20 each, allowing the purchaser to vote YES or NO question on an issue they heard when they called.  This was a Telepoll.  These responses were tabulated and sent both to the media and to the congresspersons of the respondents.  This was having a slight impact.  Brock d’Avignon, a voluntarist libertarian who had founded PhoneVoter TV Network on January 21, 1992, and because he had a proposal to the Perot Campaign, had reached both Owners of America (OOA) and Gary Tomlinson’s Telepoll 700/800/900 to formulate the questions.

To goose up the power of this program, Brock suggested a question aimed at women voters be asked next.  The two ladies from OOA suggested Abortion, then and still, a hot topic.  The question was asked in two parts to Capitol Calling Card Owners, one on a topic; and one on any force-of-law or military action. This question produced a statistical anomaly of 4%. 

The first question was, “Would you condone an abortion in your own family?  Yes/No.

77% said No. –

The second was “Would you favor a legal penalty for a woman or her doctor for performing an abortion?”  Yes/No.

73% said No. 

Because Brock had the phone numbers of card owners, he called those in the 4% range asking why they had not answered the second question.  Brock discovered those who did not answer, did not approve of using force.  Several of these individuals told him there should be an option for providing sponsored monetary incentives for bringing the baby to term, and pre & post natal care. The option was offered that week with 20% supporting the incentives first time asked.

As a Libertarian you may recognize this option.  It is a form of NOTA, None Of The Above.  The Telepoll was modified after this, to always let people express their objection to the use of force by government on whatever topic.

This was the moment in time when Perot began his rise in the polls with women, eventually to 39% approval, since Perot also held this point of view  

PhoneVoter TV  had sent proposals offering free satellite airtime through a program funded as a loss leader by Keystone Satellite Communications, Inc.  The amount of airtime was, cumulatively, about $500,000 for all candidates participating. 

Because it is likely you know nothing about the satellite industry even today, I will explain why Keystone was motivated to give away airtime. 

In 1992, the satellite industry had 20 million customers.  10 million were bars and restaurants; 10 million were to home dishes, mostly where no other distribution was available.  Keystone was willing to spend money to build its potential base of customers.

The program Brock had put together for candidates, included several which were never used.  You can read about these on The one which was used was Unedited Candidates Speeches.  Two of the four candidates for whom PhoneVoter TV provided services, including consulting in 1992, participated. 

Since 1992, all Libertarian candidates have received offers for the same program offered in 1992, this becoming more powerful each year, along with the changes in interactive technologies. 

We have never received even acknowledgement these offers were made, with the single exception of Lee Wright in 1992, who decided he was not up to the challenge.  I am well aware I have been maligned by any number of you and your associates, including Michael Emerling.    

Therefore, we are providing below two short clips which aired in 1992 on satellite and were picked up by some of the 1,200 news directors who used them on their TV News shows.  This use of the services provided, drove each of the candidates up at a rate of 2 points a day until the primaries were over.

Presidential Candidate, Governor Jerry Brown, accepted the offer from PhoneVoter TV because he was badly behind, had not intended to run, but could not stomach the idea of Bill Clinton even being the nominee of the Democratic Party.  If Brown had started a week earlier, he would have been the Democratic nominee, given the trajectory provided by the services of PhoneVoter TV.  Pat Buchanan ran to gain support from the public for the Line Item Veto, not to keep Bush from a second term.  Buchanan dropped out at the GOP Convention.

The two clips show the Unedited Speeches by Brown and Buchanan which ran 16-hours per day for 6-weeks nationwide.  The second, shows our opening graphics and the beginning of an interview with one of Brown’s campaign managers by d’Avignon. 

Unedited Candidates Speeches is first, followed below by the clip of the opening graphic and clip of the intro.  I must share that I was shocked to see this finally in 2016 as I had followed, ‘the news’ and believed I was getting the facts.   I was not, which I admitted to myself only after reading all the material d’Avignon provided, which you now see on

Brock’s team for PhoneVoter TV included people well-known to you, both Libertarians and Voluntarists: Samuel E. Konkin, III (deceased), Lawrence Samuels, Howard Hinman, Ron Fink, William Coussert, Francesca Collins-Allen (deceased), and Kent Hastings. Of course, you can’t call Sam, but we will be happy to provide you with contact information for those still living.      

So why has the Libertarian National Committee (LNC) and presidential candidates nominated by the Libertarian Party continued to refuse to use the standard tools common to running elections?  Who on National Committee or elected to National Offices discouraged this? 

Most recently, Gary Johnson, as you recall, was your presidential candidate 3x, 2008, 2012 and 2016, who raised millions of dollars, yet refused to even respond to a dozen offers quadrennially for a “Live Free TV Network” at a cost of  about $350,000 for everything and $1M in ’16 when making more from his unlibertarian lawsuits to force his way onto a lame soundbite-a-thon of a private 501(c)3 organization self-commissioned by the demopublicans as the Commission on Presidential Debates, in reaction to the 1992 PhoneVoter TV Network invitation to 64 candidates to debate in a tournament on 4 satellites. 

It is likely that, not knowing much about media, you also did not know TV runs on income from advertising.   For $100,000 paid to advertising agencies, most any TV show will generate $3,000,000 in sponsor funds which pays for the costs of distribution, creation of content, interactivity (like phone tallies starting 1992), marketing, and more. Salaries like at the LNC are not present.

Yes, Bill Clinton was the fourth candidate who responded to the offer PhoneVoter TV sent out.  Clinton and his Media Consultant, Frank Greer, faxed back and phone in late February into March of 1992, asking for advice. See the Clinton Proposal with Brock’s handwritten notes.  Incidentally, COS, unless this escaped you for decades, stands for Campaigns On Satellite.

Clinton told Brock his campaign had only $50,000 left in the bank.  How could he get satellite at a price he could afford?  Brock and Keystone were offering a 24/7 Democracy Channel, The RepubliCan Channel, an LP TV, Greens, and others on a Grassroots Channel.

Clinton & Greer’s previous conversations had made it clear Clinton also intended to participate with the programs Brock had designed for candidates, beginning with Unedited Candidates Speeches.  Brock had not thought through until recently what would have happened if Clinton participated in the ‘Unedited’ program.  Clinton could expect provocative comments from the audience, and also find individuals in audiences who had more immediate information on his behavior.  The Gennifer Flowers expose had taken place just weeks earlier.  Clinton’s history for sexual misdeeds in Arkansas would also surface.  More accusations would be on the way.  This was his only chance at being elected to the presidency. His character could not withstand interactivity; because at the time, the Ozark Mountains were full of satellite dishes and phones. 

If the segments from any Unedited Candidate Speeches, he made were uplinked unedited, he would be toast.  But if he could evade, he could control what was uplinked, he now knew what he had to do.

Therefore, he had to seem like he was going to participate, extract all necessary information, and then take evasive action. 

One of the suggestions Brock had made was a Clinton Road Show with Bill as host, as pointed out by Craig Reese of Keystone Sunset Studio, who had seen Clinton work an audience with a microphone.  Clinton seized on this.  What would this cost? Clinton wanted to know.   Brock did a search for uplink trucks and discovered the only one left in America due to the use of these for election events, and arranged for Keystone to option it. The cost seemed overwhelming to Clinton.  The truck’s rent was $35,000 a month. 

How could he afford this, Clinton inquired of Brock?  Brock further told Bill Clinton the other $15,000 could not be used for gas, as Clinton had thought.  It was to be spent on the notifications to the 1,200 news directors so they could receive Clinton’s content by rotating their dish. Brock told him not to worry because, “money would rain down from the skies.”  And it did.  Money was never again a problem for Bill and Hillary Clinton. 

Clinton had one of his staff find the uplink truck and rented it directly, evading giving Keystone, or Brock, the finder’s fee.

All these years the LP could have been running Presidential Campaigns at a profit, building a TV network with an advertising and cause-marketing agency specializing in Libertarian businesses and solutions. 

Dan, I promised to tell you about two other presidential election outcomes which were caused by the failure to use TV and Interactive options. 

The first two took place in 1996 and 2000. 

Having learned the hard way, George H. W. Bush took action beginning in 1993 to ensure the way would be clear for his beloved son, George W. Bush to be elected to the presidency in 2000. 

A cooperative relationship had been forged after Clinton’s election in 1992 between the Bushes and Clintons.  Together, they ensured debates taking place through their mutually founded Commission for Presidential Debates, would be under the control of both ‘major’ parties even as their standings continued to shrink.  See Charts available on

 GOP candidates announcing to run against Clinton for 1996 were forbidden by RNC Chairman, Haley Barbour to use Satellite or PhoneVoter TV.   More from

The DNC had signed up for satellite coverage 24/7/365 for the entire year of 1996 for the benefit of Bill Clinton in 1995.  Brock was told this by a contact in the satellite industry who saw the order. Brock warned all 17 GOP candidates by Dec 1995 the DNC had broken any pact to not use best tools, but Barbour threatened all candidates if they broke his orders. Only 4 candidates knew how satellite TV is accessed: General Colin Powell, Steve Forbes, Phil Gramm, and Lamar Alexander’s staff that tried two times to inform the candidate, but there was a problem.

Time Line for Mike Murphy

In 1996, a likely GOP candidate was Lamar Alexander.  A Bush operative named Mike Murphy, who had been part of the 1992 Bush for President Campaign team was tasked with obtaining the job as Alexander’s Media Consultant, and preventing Alexander from accepting the offers from PhoneVoter TV and COS.

Dole, with no satellite, was no match for Clinton anyway. VP candidate Kemp, who knew, could not make any headway with the Dole campaign. The RNC’s GOP-TV studio was downsized into a website.  

Then in 2000, Mike Murphy decided he wanted to work for the next likely GOP presidential nominee, John McCain as his Media Coordinator.  Mike blocked receipt of the PhoneVoter TV proposals 12 times again. 

This time, Brock drove to the Beverly Hills Hotel, on Primary Day, 2000, where McCain was preparing to concede the election in the GOP Primary to George H. W. Bush, who had enjoyed his campaign, carried out on trains which included a satellite uplink trailer on a flatcar in front of the caboose, which Bush W and Dad were using as their podium. The news directors received a steady stream of content from the Bush Campaign.  Not, however, from McCain with his Straight Talk Express bus. 

In 2000, Papa Bush had reviewed why he lost in 1992, and took action when he found reference to Keystone Satellite uplink trucks and trailers. Melodee Paul was contacted and supplied the trailer with fiber-optic cable running under the caboose to microphones and cameras to be attached at each stop. This time, the Bushes were seen by 10M+ viewers per day via news directors receiving their video feed.

Meanwhile, Brock d’Avignon handed John and Cindy McCain another notebook copy of the PhoneVoter TV proposal, the 13th of these. Introducing himself, Brock said, “Hello, I am the Executive Producer of the PhoneVoter TV Network. This proposal includes a Straight Talk TV Network on a RepubliCan Channel, which I have not shared with Mr. Bush.   I have previously sent you 12 copies by email, fax, ground mail, certified mail, and FedEx and never had a response.  Would you please read this?”

They took the notebook out of Brock’s hands.  There were six different show formats they paged through; it was edge Interactive TV for an entire network for him & surrogates. 

John and Cindy McCain standing side by side, bent their heads over the document, leafing through it.  They took turns turning the pages.  Nothing further was said until Cindy exclaimed, “John!  With this we would have won!”

McCain looked up at Brock.  “You sent this how many times?” “

A dozen,” Brock asked McCain not to concede anything but California that night, and to take time to study this.  Mike Murphy was standing about 20-feet away next to a rock wall by the brass doors leading into the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

McCain leaving the proposal with Cindy, strode over to Murphy.  Brock could hear what McCain was saying to Murphy, “Did you know about PhoneVoter TV’s proposal to my campaign for a Straight Talk TV Network or a RepubliCan Channel? Murphy backed up. “Why didn’t you tell me?”  Murphy responded, “I decided you didn’t need it.  We agreed I would give you a conventional campaign. I did.” Brock said, McCain clenched his fists by his sides, turned red in the face, and he had never seen anyone that mad who did not haul off and hit someone. McCain shook his head in disgust, stomped back to Cindy and Brock. He told Brock he would do as he requested. John and Cindy stepped onto their bus that drove them 1/10th mile through two rows of satellite uplink trucks to an atrium where he only conceded California that night. Two weeks later, he said nothing about a RepubliCan Channel and ceded to W.

Murphy had been determined to get the position as McCain’s Media Consultant, de facto Campaign Manager. On March 12, 2000, an article by Howard Kurtz titled, “Along for the Ride, was published in the Washington Post.  Kurtz reports on what he sees happening inside the McCain Campaign and mentions Murphy’s solicitation for the job.   In January 1999, he went to McCain's Senate office and delivered a 25-minute, 40-slide presentation on how he could win the nomination. Murphy's pitch: Skip the Iowa caucuses in favor of New Hampshire.”  Once in, Murphy was in the position which allowed him to ensure the use of satellite feed & TV, and PhoneVoter TV, would be blocked.

How many people who understand TV media have ever been hired to work for the Libertarian Party?  Zero. Clearly, the LP could afford to have TV media.  Why don’t we have it?  Dan, what is your own experience with media? 

Brock’s quadrennial dozen proposals with an uncensoring media tech and connectivity alliance, have been ignored. Brock at the 2018 CA LP Convention, asked both Governor Weld and Judge Gray, if either of them had ever been informed by Gary Johnson and Ron Nielson that a Live Free TV Network had been offered them each campaign a dozen times 2007, 2011, and 2015? Answers: “No” and “No”.

The bottom line is this.  Jo’s campaign is effectively reaching 2% on three threads on Instagram, which is 5% of the four (major) platforms of the 23% of the people that would bother to read them = 4700 views of Jo Jorgensen. 

Know that right now Jo could be reaching 10-million people a day.  So, what would you rather have 4700 people a day – or 10-million?  Would you like to help with this effort?
