Active Denial System. The newest advance in weaponry

Another frightening development that our tax dollars are used for that may ultimately be used against us.

I'm not as confident as you are

Forget the propaganda of this article and just focus on how this robot could be used against the people (keep in mind that "the people" could very easily be US citizens).

Thanks Cousin John!

I know we've got Ben booked for a number of shows coming up, I'll check in and see if we're talking to the C2C ... If anyone is on touch with any producers and hosts of shows large and small, we're trying to keep Ben as busy as possible between now and the 26th - so please call me if you can help hook something up!

Love the message

Even though it's a bit over the top.

It seems there's just been too much talk of "shooting war" and "when it turns violent." Violent rhetoric just used to get people riled up.

Not necessarily even here at the DP, but I just feel like there's been a shift in tone from completely non-violent and peaceful to something other than.

Over the top?

Maybe... but my asking nicely video didn't get nearly this many views!

I'm opposed to all violence and lawlessness.

And fear the loss of freedom and my job and my life. I am law abiding and strictly for peaceful and civil political action.

But i will say this. If you think a strictly non-violent, wholly political movement will stop the psychopathic fascists control freaks from completely enslaving us and destroying the last remaining vestiges of a Republican form of government, then you are sadly and totally mistaken.

See http://www.dailypaul.com/292315/obama-to-begin-huge-reorgani....
Do you think anything but violence will stop people like this?

For the record. I advocate total non-violence. Further, I think any violent resistance is futile and doomed to failure. Our fate is sealed. Best accept it and go own with what remains of our life.

I peacefully and humbly submit to the power of government and prostrate myself before its overwhelming authority. That being said, only those who are less law abiding than myself, and who, unlike myself, are misguided enough to courageously advocate resistance by any means necessary, have even a modicum of a chance of stopping this high speed train to slavery that we are all riding on.

As for me. I just don't have the stomach for it and pledge full allegiance to the new world order, or whatever order or central power that I am required to submit to. I may vote for Libertarians and peacefully support all manner of futile and fringe political movements, but you will never catch me advocating violence.

"pledge full allegiance to the new world order" ...

Wow... just wow...

F THAT.

I "shrugged" years ago, and like they say, "who is John Galt? "

There are other ways to resist than violence, and I will never pledge allegiance to evil.

anyone else horribly disappointed in the pledged amount to date?

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know Peace." - Jimi Hendrix

It's Been Interesting

Horribly disappointing? Not really. Interesting to observe? Yes.

It's been interesting to see how some people feel that $1.25M is too much to ask for - yet even the most dismal MSM outlet we'll compete against with this effort has a budget at least 20 times this much. It's been interesting to read comments how some don't seem to realize that flying Ben and a crew of 2 out to interview Snowden in person will cost some dollars - and that this sort of thing could happen often during the 100 episodes. It's been interesting that Ben has mentioned publicly (on the Peter Schiff show) that he would like to film a small mini-series (as part of the 100 episodes) on Jekyll Island for the 100th anniversary of the Federal Reserve this December 23rd. Apparently, many think that this can happen for free. And even more telling, while Ben risks his life to present the truth about many issues, he shouldn't get paid any kind of salary, have any staff and should just live in a tent and be happy about it. Oh, and he should film all episodes on an iPhone.

It's also been interesting seeing how suddenly many think that Ron Paul's new TV channel is going to save the day for investigative journalism. Of course, while we all love Ron, he's not an investigative journalist and never will be. He will make some great videos for sure and it will be wonderful for the cause of Liberty, however, they will do nothing to unveil the next IRS scandal, nor will they involve Ben Swann confronting the POTUS and asking him real questions, etc., etc. etc.....

Even further, it's been interesting to observe how some feel that a "fat cat" should swoop in and save the day by giving Ben a cool million for his Kickstarter project. Of course, this would completely defeat the purpose of the Truth In Media project because that kind of money ALWAYS comes with stipulations and demands. You read that right - you cannot complain about not having truth in media and that the MSM is controlled by powerful interests - and then come right back and say "if only a very rich person would come in and save the day so Ben can tell the truth". Read that last sentence over and over.

Perhaps the most interesting item of all is this: Is the Liberty movement going to let a very public Kickstarter project about desiring truth in media fail?

IMO, what will be most telling - and interesting - is to see if the Liberty movement will continue to complain about the MSM, when the very thing they asked for - real investigative journalism not beholden to any powerful interests - was right in front of their face and they did nothing about it.

I have done my part and so has Ben and several others. It's up to the grassroots if they will make this happen. Here's hoping the sun doesn't set on this very small window of opportunity we have left to tell the truth to the world.

Respectfully,

Jeremy Richter

I think there was a

I think there was a fundamental flaw in the game plan. Ben Swann is incredible, but exactly how this project would be any different than the Corbett Report or Infowars in terms of its reach or influence was never outlined.

Production values are one thing, but there has to be a distribution system. The mainstream programs you compare this project to are piped into the homes of regular people every day.... The proposal here, as I understand it, is essentially to make really, really, really expensive YouTube videos.

Not just youtube...

Think Netflix to Hulu to mobile app to game consoles and all the other online platforms videos are distributed on these days....

Right

to reach young, wired-in people who have likely already been exposed to liberty ideas, and who can opt out.

The value of Swann, and Ron Paul, was that they were taking liberty ideas to a much broader audience, shocking everyone with the truth, using the propaganda machine against the establishment....That's what everyone was so excited about.

You really should look at the numbers..

Cable and Satellite are dying a slow death, and it's not just young people watching video content online.

Jeremy

That was an outstanding response. It is not just you and Ben who are on the line, it is ALL who wish to embrace Liberty and truth in media.

Speaking for myself, I am very disappointed concerning the lack of grassroots support that you are getting. While many have contributed and trust/support the project, many have let the ball drop. This initiative should have been fully funded and met when it was first announced.

It is up to us, the grassroots, to make this happen. It is not difficult or expensive to have a box of business cards made up to pass around while shopping, at meetings, or events such as the Celebrate America event last weekend. If just a few cards out of the box of 500 contribute, it is well worth it. It is not expensive to have a banner or two made to post on a busy intersection. Short of that, everybody on this board should at least twitter, facebook, email, everybody in their lists, as well as post on FreedomWorks.org website. This is what grassroots is all about!

Jeremy, if there is anything else that you need me to do, let me know. I am headstrong and determined to make this happen.

TwelveOhOne's picture

Hi Jeremy!

Here's hoping that, if you don't reach the 1.2 million mark, that you'll start over with another project with a more realistic goal.

More realistic, that is, compared to what was pledged -- i.e., if people end up pledging $400k, perhaps a $500k limit for the next attempt.

I wish you success!

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

More realistic?

This is a realistic #, but if we don't get it via kickstarter, we'll get it via other avenues... Help spread the word!!

Budget Outline

Hi Jeremy,

Do you have a line budget outlining the cost for the production to justify the 1.25M? Is there a PDF or Excel spreadsheet that we can look at so we can know exactly where and what departments the money is going to? I understand the scale and quality your going for, I just figured it would be nice to know.

100 episodes

1.25 mil = 12,500 per episode... really cheap in comparison to anything else being done of this quality...

Jeremy can answer better than I can though!:)

No, it just means

We have work to do! We've raised millions in a day before, we can make this happen for Ben too!

The heavy hitters are you and me ...spread the word! make your own video, make phone calls, send emails, ask your friends and family!

Know someone who runs a website? Ask them to feature Ben's project on it! Know someone with a talk show? Ask them to have Ben on as a guest, or just call on in to any talk show and talk about it yourself!

We can do this!
