Letter to Sacramento Mayor and City Council on their constant attacks on the First Amendment, and their encouraging and enabling brainwashed/paid audience members to do it too.

Dear Mayor and City Council,


First, it is necessary to review a few principles that a wise person would do well to learn,


“If anyone tells you that a certain person speaks ill of you, do not make excuses about what is said of you but answer, “He was ignorant of my other faults, else he would not have mentioned these alone.”

― Epictetus


So when others wrongly accuse me of a host of the Cultural Marxist lexicon, none of which is true, this is what I think. All of you have to shout out these conversation-stopping slurs because you are incapable of a serious conversation where your existing beliefs are seriously challenged. A person who has the truth has nothing to fear from criticism, for either it is false, and the error can be easily pointed out, or it is true, and we need to adjust our own viewpoint. Only the evil and wicked are afraid of criticism, for the truth poses a great danger to them.


“If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.”

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,


It’s quite sad that fellow American citizens cannot sit down and have a discussion about their disagreements. The City Council meetings were designed so that all citizens could come and voice their opinions, and the best ones would prevail, as they could be defended with logic and reason. That’s not what’s happening in Sacramento. You are silencing me and others and trying to suppress dissent, which is tyranny. You can libel and slander it as ‘bigotry’ and the rest of your Cultural Marxist slurs, but it’s tyranny, no matter what you say.  




This piece regards the article written on May 23rd, the last time I attended in person, over two months ago.


Everyone ought to know the reason why I’m not attending is that your non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and media are running cover for you and have seduced, deceived, and likely, in some instances, paid young activists to harass, threaten, intimidate, and coerce us into silence. These are the tactics of Communists. The audience is not made up of hard-working citizens of Sacramento. Those who constantly harass and interrupt me likely have never had a steady 40-hour-a-week job in their lives, are badly deceived and accept the gospel of social media while understanding little to nothing of real history.


Instead of using these thugs, hooligans, and hoodlums, you ought to be correcting them and helping develop their minds into their highest potential. Right now, you are using them as useful idiots, and you ought to be ashamed of yourself. I’m primarily concerned with the Mayor and Ms. Kaplan, as they are the hardliners, especially the Mayor, a career politician who has ruined California and Sacramento while turning himself into a millionaire and living in a palace. At the same time, thousands are reduced to poverty and homelessness in the streets of Sacramento.


For the rest of you, though you are indoctrinated, especially the younger ones, there is hope. Indeed, there is hope for even the Mayor and Ms. Kaplan, for history will reveal their corruption, and your memory will not be thought upon happily by any wise and virtuous person.


Proverbs 10:7


The memory of the just is blessed: But the name of the wicked shall rot.


Ms. Valenzuela, Ms. Maple, Ms. Talamantes, and Ms. Vang, you all obviously have been deluded by the media and schools. I’m not mad at you. Where you are now, I once was when I was 33. I, too, was loved and praised by society and actually was making $500,000 a year. But, when I saw the evil that was going on, it sickened me enough to do something about it, no matter what it cost me. And it did cost me; distracted from my duty by internal and external evils, I failed a test not really relevant to my job, and lost my insurance agency, was forced to sell my home, had my car re-possessed, and was nearly homeless. For three years, I slept on a couch with no shower or stove. But right makes might, and a man who knows he is in the right cannot be overwhelmed with evil. ‘Adversity doth best discover virtue, prosperity doth best discover vice,’ as Bacon said, how true. On the topic of Bacon, he also said ‘If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end with doubts, but if he will be content to begin with doubts he shall end in certainties.” When you read this, it would be wise to keep an open mind. Ask yourself, ‘Is there a chance that Ryan is right and I am wrong’? That’s what good listeners do.  


What is especially sad to me is Ms. Vang is the oldest of 16 children, and she supports homosexuality. Ms. Vang, if your parents had supported that when they were younger, likely most of your family wouldn’t be on earth right now. I’m the eldest of 18, so I can relate.  


As for Mr. Loloee, Mr. Jennings, and Mr. Guerra, I believe all of you are well-meaning, and had I had your experiences, I likely would be doing something close to what you are doing. But every man comes to a moment in his life where he must decide on what is right or what is wrong, and that is his destiny. Your life will never be the same after this. You have all reached a fork in the road. You see tyranny in front of your eyes, and you must decide, do you take the road of courage or cowardice. Sure, you might lose everything if you speak out, but you lose your honor and soul if you stay quiet, which is worse than what any human can do to you.


 ‘There is no witness so dreadful, no accuser so terrible as the conscience that dwells in the heart of every man.’ Polybius


Lastly, for the Mayor and Ms. Kaplan, I am not an anti-semite, criticism of groups of Jews does not make one an anti-semite, and if that’s a definition you want to pervert, then you both are Loxists and Antarians and have a hatred for people with European backgrounds. Goes both ways. I’m getting tired of defending myself from lies from the Mayor and City Council. I shouldn’t have to take nearly my entire two minutes to defend myself from interruptions and a flurry of falsehoods spread about me by my detractors. And I should have my whole 2 minutes without being interrupted.


If you believe your experience is all that matters in the world, you will have subjective truth; if you believe that truth is objective and is true for all times, places, and circumstances, as I do, and it takes work to find it, you will discover ideas different from the ones you currently have.


To be clear, I am not afraid of any of the 8 billion humans on earth, though I am prudent when there are young people who are running around with threats, and who often use drugs, and have no moral compass. These are dangerous people to be around. Wise and prudent people minimize their exposure to these types, who are menaces to society. You are actually far more culpable than they, for you enable and encourage their violent and irrational behavior to protect your racket.


The Mayor and Ms. Kaplan have interrupted me and others and stopped City Council meetings. It’s all recorded, we have all the evidence, and we are working on filing a lawsuit against you. If we had decent lawyers, you’d have already been sued for millions for your obvious and repeated assaults on the First Amendment rights of the citizens of America. Your opinion of me is irrelevant. You may believe I’m a ‘fascist,’ a ‘bigot,’ an ‘anti-semite,’ etc., all of which are false and malicious lies, libels, and slanders spread about me by the malevolent who do not wish their wicked deeds to be exposed. None of your false beliefs justify you in interrupting my time to speak or in your allowing others to interrupt repeatedly. You don’t allow your favorite speakers to be interrupted, but you allow your critics to be interrupted—complete tyranny.


As elected officials, you don’t have to agree with everyone who speaks. You were not elected to police other people’s speech. You were elected to listen to all citizens and to STOP VIOLENT CITIZENS FROM THREATENING AND USING VIOLENCE TO SILENCE THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS, a job you are intentionally and deliberately failing to perform.  


If a citizen wants to get up in public and note that Jews are overrepresented in government, that’s a fact, and it’s not your right or duty to interrupt them and to scream ‘hate,’ ‘anti-semitism,’ ‘bigot,’ etc. Listen to all your citizens, consider what they have to say, then make your decisions. By silencing some citizens, you are sending the very dangerous message that you believe free speech is only for people who agree with you and not for those who disagree. Besides, Mr. Steinberg and Ms. Kaplan would be in jail under the Torah. You aren’t blood-related to the original 12 tribes, and you are fake Jews. You don’t obey the Old Testament at all. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, Daniel, Isaiah, and the rest of the righteous men of the Old Testament would have detested you both. He would have denounced you publicly, as I’m doing today.


Here you can find a man in Walnut Creek who eloquently denounced city officials who tried to police free speech. The gentleman didn’t even know me, and he told the truth. We need millions more like him. Because when ONE American’s free speech rights are attacked, ALL 330 MILLION Americans’ free speech rights are attacked, including YOURS. What you deny others can easily one day be denied you. No one has interrupted you from speaking, I’ve never threatened you or any of your violent supporters, and indeed, no violence has been done to you.


Council Woman Kaplan stopped one meeting because she felt afraid. Have you been followed to your car late at night after council meetings, Ms. Kaplan? I have. Have you had thugs come up to you in meetings and challenge you to fights? I have. Have you had thugs violently shove men who attended with you, who were peaceful? I have. Have you been constantly interrupted when you are speaking? I have. Have you had your Zoom call cut multiple times by a Mayor who zealously silences speech he doesn’t like? I have. Have you been called a ‘bigot’ by a mayor who is bigoted against opinions he disagrees with? I have.  


Here is the article.




Ms. Kaplan comments on Twitter saying:


“As a Councilmember, I don’t feel safe in our meeting. It is appropriate to recess meeting.


I am Jewish & have been offended & disturbed each time the anti-Semitic has spoken publicly- specifically turning my back when he speaks. Tonight he brought more proud boys- I did not feel safe w them in the audience (period).”


Now, you blatantly call me an ‘anti-semitic,’ which is a lie; disagreeing with you, the Mayor, and other groups of Jews does not mean I hate all Jews. I called you to correct that, and you couldn’t hang up the phone fast enough, letting me know, ‘Buddy, I don’t have time for this.’ When will you have time for the truth, Ms. Kaplan? You act like a petulant and spoiled child by turning your back; it’s juvenile and immature behavior one would expect of a child, not of an adult, and indeed not a member of a City Council. Jeff Perrine is not a Proud Boy; as for the others who came, whose Roman Salute and paraphernalia I have always disavowed and always will; I had never met them before; they said they were coming to support free speech. For the record, when I told them to stop throwing up Hitler salutes and wearing controversial symbols, I was challenged to a fight. So, I police my ranks. Will you police your ranks and rid the City Hall of those who are violent and use intimidation tactics and coercion to silence ideas they don’t like? 


Ms. Talamantes then commented on Twitter:


“Council gets disrupted sometimes. Usually it’s for no more than a few minutes. Tonight, our council meeting came to a halt due to the hatred of a few anti-Semitic and racist individuals. Our city and our council is no place for hate of any kind.”


You just libeled me as hateful, anti-semitic, and racist. All is not true. If any violence is done to me, you and the others on the City Council will be liable for whipping up violence with your malicious lies. 


It would be nice if you would all apologize for your past conduct in libeling and slandering a man simply telling uncomfortable truths, as it’s better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie. It would also be fantastic if you would stop interrupting remarks yourselves, and also if you would use the police to escort those who interrupt other speakers out of the council chambers and to begin doing your jobs. ALL citizens deserve a fair hearing at these public meetings, not just some. Whether you accept the truth of what is being said or not, God’s truth is marching on with or without you. You can either oppose the truth, and that always fails long term, or you can support it, and you can restore the dignity and honor you lost due to your current path.

LIVE NOT BY LIES. Alexander Solzhenitsyn

On the day Solzhenitsyn was arrested, February, 12, 1974, he released the text of “Live Not by Lies.” The next day, he was exiled to the West, where he received a hero’s welcome. This moment marks the peak of his fame. Solzhenitsyn equates “lies” with ideology, the illusion that human nature and society can be reshaped to predetermined specifications. And his last word before leaving his homeland urges Soviet citizens as individuals to refrain from cooperating with the regime’s lies. Even the most timid can take this least demanding step toward spiritual independence. If many march together on this path of passive resistance, the whole inhuman system will totter and collapse.

by Edward E. Ericson, Jr. and Daniel J. Mahoney, The Solzhenitsyn Reader

There was a time when we dared not rustle a whisper. But now we write and read samizdat and, congregating in the smoking rooms of research institutes, heartily complain to each other of all they are muddling up, of all they are dragging us into! There’s that unnecessary bravado around our ventures into space, against the backdrop of ruin and poverty at home; and the buttressing of distant savage regimes; and the kindling of civil wars; and the ill-thought-out cultivation of Mao Zedong (at our expense to boot)—in the end we’ll be the ones sent out against him, and we’ll have to go, what other option will there be? And they put whomever they want on trial, and brand the healthy as mentally ill—and it is always “they,” while we are—helpless.

We are approaching the brink; already a universal spiritual demise is upon us; a physical one is about to flare up and engulf us and our children, while we continue to smile sheepishly and babble:

“But what can we do to stop it? We haven’t the strength.”

We have so hopelessly ceded our humanity that for the modest handouts of today we are ready to surrender up all principles, our soul, all the labors of our ancestors, all the prospects of our descendants—anything to avoid disrupting our meager existence. We have lost our strength, our pride, our passion. We do not even fear a common nuclear death, do not fear a third world war (perhaps we’ll hide away in some crevice), but fear only to take a civic stance! We hope only not to stray from the herd, not to set out on our own, and risk suddenly having to make do without the white bread, the hot water heater, a Moscow residency permit.

We have internalized well the lessons drummed into us by the state; we are forever content and comfortable with its premise: we cannot escape the environment, the social conditions; they shape us, “being determines consciousness.” What have we to do with this? We can do nothing.

But we can do—everything!—even if we comfort and lie to ourselves that this is not so. It is not “they” who are guilty of everything, but we ourselves, only we!

Some will counter: But really, there is nothing to be done! Our mouths are gagged, no one listens to us, no one asks us. How can we make them listen to us?

To make them reconsider—is impossible.

The natural thing would be simply not to reelect them, but there are no re-elections in our country.

In the West they have strikes, protest marches, but we are too cowed, too scared: How does one just give up one’s job, just go out onto the street?

All the other fateful means resorted to over the last century of Russia’s bitter history are even less fitting for us today—true, let’s not fall back on them! Today, when all the axes have hewn what they hacked, when all that was sown has borne fruit, we can see how lost, how drugged were those conceited youths who sought, through terror, bloody uprising, and civil war, to make the country just and content. No thank you, fathers of enlightenment! We now know that the vileness of the means begets the vileness of the result. Let our hands be clean!

So has the circle closed? So is there indeed no way out? So the only thing left to do is wait inertly: What if something just happens by itself?

But it will never come unstuck by itself, if we all, every day, continue to acknowledge, glorify, and strengthen it, if we do not, at the least, recoil from its most vulnerable point.

From lies.

When violence bursts onto the peaceful human condition, its face is flush with self-assurance, it displays on its banner and proclaims: “I am Violence! Make way, step aside, I will crush you!” But violence ages swiftly, a few years pass—and it is no longer sure of itself. To prop itself up, to appear decent, it will without fail call forth its ally—Lies. For violence has nothing to cover itself with but lies, and lies can only persist through violence. And it is not every day and not on every shoulder that violence brings down its heavy hand: It demands of us only a submission to lies, a daily participation in deceit—and this suffices as our fealty.

And therein we find, neglected by us, the simplest, the most accessible key to our liberation: a personal nonparticipation in lies! Even if all is covered by lies, even if all is under their rule, let us resist in the smallest way: Let their rule hold not through me!

And this is the way to break out of the imaginary encirclement of our inertness, the easiest way for us and the most devastating for the lies. For when people renounce lies, lies simply cease to exist. Like parasites, they can only survive when attached to a person.

We are not called upon to step out onto the square and shout out the truth, to say out loud what we think—this is scary, we are not ready. But let us at least refuse to say what we do not think!

This is the way, then, the easiest and most accessible for us given our deep-seated organic cowardice, much easier than (it’s scary even to utter the words) civil disobedience à la Gandhi.

Our way must be: Never knowingly support lies! Having understood where the lies begin (and many see this line differently)—step back from that gangrenous edge! Let us not glue back the flaking scales of the Ideology, not gather back its crumbling bones, nor patch together its decomposing garb, and we will be amazed how swiftly and helplessly the lies will fall away, and that which is destined to be naked will be exposed as such to the world.

And thus, overcoming our temerity, let each man choose: Will he remain a witting servant of the lies (needless to say, not due to natural predisposition, but in order to provide a living for the family, to rear the children in the spirit of lies!), or has the time come for him to stand straight as an honest man, worthy of the respect of his children and contemporaries? And from that day onward he:

· Will not write, sign, nor publish in any way, a single line distorting, so far as he can see, the truth;

· Will not utter such a line in private or in public conversation, nor read it from a crib sheet, nor speak it in the role of educator, canvasser, teacher, actor;

· Will not in painting, sculpture, photograph, technology, or music depict, support, or broadcast a single false thought, a single distortion of the truth as he discerns it;

· Will not cite in writing or in speech a single “guiding” quote for gratification, insurance, for his success at work, unless he fully shares the cited thought and believes that it fits the context precisely;

· Will not be forced to a demonstration or a rally if it runs counter to his desire and his will; will not take up and raise a banner or slogan in which he does not fully believe;

· Will not raise a hand in vote for a proposal which he does not sincerely support; will not vote openly or in secret ballot for a candidate whom he deems dubious or unworthy;

· Will not be impelled to a meeting where a forced and distorted discussion is expected to take place;

· Will at once walk out from a session, meeting, lecture, play, or film as soon as he hears the speaker utter a lie, ideological drivel, or shameless propaganda;

· Will not subscribe to, nor buy in retail, a newspaper or journal that distorts or hides the underlying facts.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the possible and necessary ways of evading lies. But he who begins to cleanse himself will, with a cleansed eye, easily discern yet other opportunities.

Yes, at first it will not be fair. Someone will have to temporarily lose his job. For the young who seek to live by truth, this will at first severely complicate life, for their tests and quizzes, too, are stuffed with lies, and so choices will have to be made. But there is no loophole left for anyone who seeks to be honest: Not even for a day, not even in the safest technical occupations can he avoid even a single one of the listed choices—to be made in favor of either truth or lies, in favor of spiritual independence or spiritual servility. And as for him who lacks the courage to defend even his own soul: Let him not brag of his progressive views, boast of his status as an academician or a recognized artist, a distinguished citizen or general. Let him say to himself plainly: I am cattle, I am a coward, I seek only warmth and to eat my fill.

For us, who have grown staid over time, even this most moderate path of resistance will be not be easy to set out upon. But how much easier it is than self-immolation or even a hunger strike: Flames will not engulf your body, your eyes will not pop out from the heat, and your family will always have at least a piece of black bread to wash down with a glass of clear water.

Betrayed and deceived by us, did not a great European people—the Czechoslovaks—show us how one can stand down the tanks with bared chest alone, as long as inside it beats a worthy heart?

It will not be an easy path, perhaps, but it is the easiest among those that lie before us. Not an easy choice for the body, but the only one for the soul. No, not an easy path, but then we already have among us people, dozens even, who have for years abided by all these rules, who live by the truth.

And so: We need not be the first to set out on this path, Ours is but to join! The more of us set out together, the thicker our ranks, the easier and shorter will this path be for us all! If we become thousands—they will not cope, they will be unable to touch us. If we will grow to tens of thousands—we will not recognize our country!

But if we shrink away, then let us cease complaining that someone does not let us draw breath—we do it to ourselves! Let us then cower and hunker down, while our comrades the biologists bring closer the day when our thoughts can be read and our genes altered.

And if from this also we shrink away, then we are worthless, hopeless, and it is of us that Pushkin asks with scorn:

Why offer herds their liberation?
Their heritage each generation
The yoke with jingles, and the whip.
