Put up a sign against the Plan!

Think this sign will get people's attention?

No NAIS yard signs in Arkansas.
A great way to "talk" to all your neighbors!!!

"We have been brought together in our common struggle against the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) in our effort to hold onto our Constitutional freedoms and rights to private property (our animals) and to protect our lifestyles of traditional farming and animal ownership. Even if you do not own animals, this WILL affect you. This fight is everyone's fight."

We got the above link from Gisela, an ACL affiliate and active Alaskan against the NAIS, whose website, says:

"Do not sign up "Voluntary" with a capital "V"

While NAIS is currently limited to livestock animals, it lays a disturbing precedent. If the government can force everyone to identify and track every horse, chicken, or cow, why not cats and dogs? Read Dogs going NAIS. State by state they are trying to implement some very Horrendous dog and cat laws. There is no time to continue on ignoring FACTS. Get involved.. Dogs going NAIS

Read the Official USDA Documents on the National Animal Identification System: Then Read the Rules and Regulations you will have to live with Under the Animal Health Protection Act when you sign up "Voluntarily" with a capital V! No Mis-information, No Half Truths, No Mis Understanding, Just facts taken from the USDA "Plans" Under The Animal Health Protection Act, One slip up on your part can net you 1 year in Jail with a $50,000.00 up $500,000.00 fine!"

GerTee gets a new logo

gertee logo by Nordica Friedrich,
2007, all rights reserved.

Plans to build GerTeeville are underway! We now have 2 carpenters.. whoo hoo! We'll start with raised gravel pads and decks and build five to ten private gertees for overnight rentals. I think a sweatlodge gertee or a hot tub gertee is an essential. This could all be ready by June 2008. We also have the go-ahead to build Camp Redington's Alaskan Homesteader Museum. I'm separating Iditarod/mushing items for ebay auctions and the museum now. I want the museum to be inside a big 30 foot gertee that sits right on the edge of the Edgerton Hwy, but we're dealing with Alaskan carpenters here, and they can't help it.. they think in logs, not sticks.

We're still not finished with 2020, we just had to buy new software to even be able to edit the file, but the next printing will have an ISBN# and some exciting additions that should make it worth the wait. I'm thinking of ways we can make it up to people for having to wait so long for us to fill their orders. We've done so much of this in an accidental and often rushed way, and now people are showing up looking for opportunities and several of them just happen to fill our needs. Our new neighbor is a professional proofreader, and we just hired her to work for ACL Books. So it will only be about two more weeks for 2020, even if we have to make them by hand.

I'm trying not to be overwhelmed by all the things that keep popping up. I'm learning to "roll with the punches," and I am not going to waste another second worrying about what's going to happen next. I'm going back to my old idea that all I need to do is show up and do what's right in front of me. I took on a lot lately. I buried myself in work for the next three months. So to all the people who email me, please understand this is why I don't always respond right away.

My current project list includes:
1. ACL Books: 2020 revisions, print books and mail orders
2. Contract/ACL Books: edit book for Jack
3. Contract: research markets for Johnny
4. Contract: ebay auctions for Iditarod items
5. ACL Books: write/collaborate on: How to build a GerTee with $500.00 (or less)
6. ACL Books: print hardcopy of the Anticommunitarian Manifesto
7. AKN Webwriters: campredington,, ACL, primitivwerks, GerTee
8. ACL: write article Hegels' Big Idea, Part II
9. Camp Redington: plan and build museum
10. GERTEEVILLE: plan, design and build an Alaskan experience campground
11. ACL Books: write Cooking and baking on top of a woodstove
12. AKN Webwriters/Primitivwerks: Build shops

Man, if I finish all that I'll be totally amazed. Then maybe I'd get to work on the vacation packages that Sharon was hoping we could set-up. Just this past week
a guy talked to me about bringing people out this way. There's already a local driver who can provide van service between the Wrangells and Anchorage, which will make it a lot easier to plan entire vacations for visitors who want to be picked up in Anchorage. Lots of opportunities to involve small, local businesses in something like a "poker run" vacation package. There is a trail almost all the way to Chitina now (and City Electric hasn't given up on their drilling, so there may be DSL too!)

GerTeevilles's residents have been discussing the kinds of visitors who we think would be attracted to this kind of an Alaskan vacation, and we pretty much all decided that (if we're right) those are the kinds of people we'd like to meet.

Then there's all the sad people who write me lately, the ones who live in so much pain because they found out too much about the Plan. I know that for me, I had to walk away from the work in Seattle and take a breather in the mountains to get my sense of self back. When we fight the communitarians alone, after a while it takes a toll, and there's usually nobody there to help us deal with it. Not that I want to start a recovery camp or anything of the sort, but maybe this could also be a place where anticommunitarians can come to rejuvenate their spirits. I learned the healing power of sharing our stories in 12 step meetings.. maybe we could even build a little empty church GerTee, where our visitors could go to pray. That could be taking it too far, but while I'm back into my "fun" mode I can't help but remember all the years I too was SO totally freaked out to learn the truth about our system. If I hadn't of gone to the Big Horns in 2003, who knows what my state of mind woud be today. I'd like Barbara and all our other suffering (and not-suffering) friends to know we'll be happy to make space for them to build and stay in whatever they want to here. If things go well for us, we could have some real nice, uptown plumbed GerTees, with decks, silks and woven fabrics, and gorgeous furniture for our visitors who will pay us big bucks not to have to rough it. Could be something for everybody.

There's no reason anyone in the world should be homeless when there are so many ways to build a ger/yurt/hut out of local wood and recycled materials. Even a homemade 18 foot gertee is better than a cot inside a fenced stadium, school, or military fort. Obviously it's not something people think will ever happen to them.. but it does. I just read that almost 200,000 U.S. military veterans are homeless in the United States every night. If that's true, then maybe it's past time to start taking this whole gertee idea to the streets. Do Katrina victims still need housing? One man who contacted me thought it would be a great idea to take our yurt concept to a depressed area of the world and use it to stimulate local people to rebuild their own neighborhoods. Maybe a homeless vet wants to come up; we'll show him how to build one and he can take it outside.

The inevitable North American Union (NAU)

What is the SPP?

"The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) was launched in March of 2005 as a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing.

This trilateral initiative is premised on our security and our economic prosperity being mutually reinforcing. The SPP recognizes that our three great nations are bound by a shared belief in freedom, economic opportunity, and strong democratic institutions.

The SPP provides the framework to ensure that North America is the safest and best place to live and do business. It includes ambitious security and prosperity programs to keep our borders closed to terrorism yet open to trade.

The SPP builds upon, but is separate from, our long-standing trade and economic relationships. It energizes other aspects of our cooperative relations, such as the protection of our environment, our food supply, and our public health."

Now, what does Smarth Growth and Community Development have to do with the SPP? Well, land use and transportation are "integrated":

"The FHWA believes that "smart growth" is a concept best supported by a set of policies and programs intended to protect and preserve valuable natural and cultural resources. "Smart growth" also encourages economic development in targeted locations. While transportation is not specifically mentioned in that working definition, it is important to note that transportation affects land use just like affordable housing, good schools, and low crime rates."

The Federal Highway Administration is DIRECTLY connected to EVERY communitarian program underway in the United States:

It really doesn't matter if you're for or against this whole new trade agreement. This plan for world government is too complete. It allows for ZERO dissenting votes or opinions. Ask the French and Dutch voters what happens when their two nations included in the European Union voted against the establishment of a new "European Union" constitution. Their EU leaders simply signed a new treaty at Lisbon that adopted the "failed" EU constititution anyway.

This could revolutionize the travel industry!

Will Alaskans get to ride with Mexican truck drivers all the way to Mexico during the harsh winter months? Does the SPP mean Americans with DUIs and minor criminal records won't have to pay the Canadian border's mafia extortion agents just to drive back and forth between the continental U.S. and the state of Alaska? The Mexicans get travel clearance... don't they?

Notice how the above map shows the trade route goes all the way to Fairbanks, Alaska? Well it's been amazing to watch how huge Fairbanks has grown over the past decade. The new Mitchell and Johansen Expressways were built in a large circle around the town, and massive building has been ongoing... huge new Wal Marts and Borders Bookstores in a dying town that has little to no industrial or agricultural base. It looked to me like "somebody" knew something BIG was going to happen that would create a populace to sustain all the new corporate stores. Rural Planning is a very important piece:

So don't worry about a thing Amerika. In the USA and Canada, we're still arguing over the reality of our emerging North American Union. We don't expect any national referendums to arise from the populace in our "free" nations. Not that it would make a bit of difference even if the SPP/NAU did end up as a legally proposed constitutional amendment. Our state legislatures would probably vote for ALL of it, regardless of what their constituents want. Nothing will be allowed to sway the path of the emerging synthesis. It's our evolutionary destiny, okay?

Don't waste your precious time away from the TV or sports by even thinking about the NAU. If you must do something "political," Christian conservatives can follow their Israeli leaders at the Horowitz Freedom Center and put all their energy into fighting the illusive Islamofascists. The left can do what they've always done. As top leaders on both sides know, promoting dialectical conflicts ensures the REAL issues facing North America are left to the more educated, moral people who should be making all the important top level decisions in secret anyway, right?

My country's tired of me
I've joined the SPP
of three I sing
Land where the U.S. ends
where all of Canada bends
We're all Mexican tequilla blends
Let new slavery ring!

Reforming individuals into collectivists

"As a change agent— you learn new ways to transform large systems." Jim Rough, Dynamic Facilitation Skills Seminar

Before the US, Canada and Mexico can be successfully merged into one big happy North American Union, all former national citizens have to change their minds about what personal liberty and freedom means. The North American Community is a part of a global communitarian government system. Under the emerging system, individual liberty is simply not sustainable.

Now of course elected officials are denying there is any plan to integrate nations into regional trading blocks. Indeed, our very own President Bush calls what people speculate that goes on in their closed NAU meetings an amusing conspiracy:

Why do they have to lie about the plan to individuals living in countries where individual rights are the RULE of LAW? The Community comes first in a communitarian system. Regional trade union members are required to put the "needs" of the community BEFORE the LEGAL RIGHTS of the individuals living in the community. The U.S. Bill of Rights, for example, is an identified barrier to achieving the ultimate communitarian vision.

Now, it doesn't appear that the Mexicans have a problem with helping to incorporate the global vision, as their government has never been one that routinely swears to "protect and defend" their people's Constitution. But in the US and Canada, where the citizens aren't migrating in droves to escape poverty, unemployment and systematic corruption, the citizens see things a little bit differently than an illegal immigrant escaping north.

So, Americans and Canadians must be taught to think and feel differently about any leftover laws that protect their individuals. Some laws remain on the books. Too many citizens expect them to stand firm against covert changes. That's where trained change agents take over.

Change agents/facilitators teach people how to control and manipulate small groups. The goal is to find and reward weak minded, greedy individuals who will go along with the global change agenda, and to minimize the participation of strong minded individuals who refuse to change. explains the meaning of the word "agent" when it's associated with "change:"

" In the 1960s, Louis Althusser gave a different slant to the meaning of “agency.” For Althusser, human beings were “agents” of change in just the same way that they are carriers of a disease, i.e., he negated the subjective aspect of agency, leaving change purely as a result of structure, with no place for indivudals."

It's important to note that for change agents, participating weak minded individuals don't necessarily need to know community law overrules all national, state and local laws that protect individuals. The less the participants know about UN Local Agenda 21 agreements or the principles for sustainable development the less trouble they're apt to cause. All they need to know is that the types of people who cling to "outdated" national constitutions are backwards, immoral, and pose a clear threat to the health and safety of the community.

For those unfamiliar with the term "change agent," here's a good introduction by Will Banyan:

Training for friendly facilitators of Marxist change is offered by universities worldwide: "Australian universities are currently being "enterprised" by a powerful logic of managed performance, executive centralisation and a new code of corporate governance (Marginson & Considine, 2000). These changes appear as part of a systematic restructure taking place in a number of advanced systems, yet the Australian version is recognised as especially vigorous (Slaughter and Leslie, 1997; Clark, 1998; Meek and Wood, 1997). " Posted by the Australian Fabians:

The REAL battles for the heart and soul of our people are taking place right down the street. Anyone who wants to "stop" the North American Union could make a huge impact by attending local meetings designed to "facilitate change." These little meetings and councils are where the root Fabian changes are being taught to us, our children, and our government bureaucrats. 50, 000 people can take to the streets to march in "protest" against the WTO, the NAU or the SPP, and all they'll ever achieve are Marxist goals for change (chaos, conflict, violence, etc.) But if 50 individuals who know the real score show up at a local visioning or council, they can stop the local integration meeting dead in its tracks.


Well, first of all, the local turnouts are usually very low at the planning meetings, so it's a distinct advantage if free thinking individuals outnumber the communitarians. 5 to 1 may even be sufficient. (In Seattle in 1999, only 35 people endorsed the final Roosevelt Neighborhood Plan; the rest of my 5000 neighbors didn't have the first clue anyone was writing their "vision for the future." My continued presence and requests for their planning documents caused the City to stop some of the restrictive actions against property owners.. imagine if there'd been 10 of me.)

Secondly, just because the leading facilitators are highly trained and skilled manipulators, they suggest numerous innovative system changes that cleverly violates constitutional law. If only one person in your group can read the plan and the agenda beforehand, they can explain the highlights of the meeting's goals to the rest. If you have ONE person in your group who knows how to make a motion to change the meeting's agenda, and you have ONE person who seconds the motion, then you can all force an immediate vote to change the meeting's agenda. (I saw this happen live in Seattle at a Revised Noise Council meeting. Rick and Susan Hangartner, who learned about the plans in Portland during the transformations there, were fully prepared to alter the facilitated agenda, and did it with the support of the Seattle Musicans' Union.)

Jim Rough of Dynamic Facilitation Skills Seminar ... since 1990:

Jim Rough gives a nice overview of the meetings I experienced firsthand in Seattle in 1999. The leaders always have a bunch of large paper at the front of the room where they nod and smile and write down all the local's "comments." SPD COPS Officer Hope Baur admitted in the above Noise meeting that Seattle police had been told NOT to enforce the existing Noise Law for five years prior. Then, gee, when the nice facilitators arrived in Seattle neighborhood meetings and asked the locals to identify their biggest "problems," guess what most people complained about.

Once we understand these meetings are pre-planned years in advance, then we have the option of asking to see a LOT of planning documents produced by government agencies, stakeholders, participating private businesses, world-class trainers and all other affiliated global change organizations. Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in the US, our citizens can request to review and copy ANY government program using FEDERAL FUNDING. Many of these Rebuilding Community programs (#2 goal in the War on Terror) come under Homeland Security now, so they'll be hard pressed to claim local status anymore. Many states also have a state public documents act... this can be used when State of City public officials try to avoid your request by claiming they do not come under the 1974 FOIA.

So far I haven't met ONE person who lives in Anchorage, AK who's read Anchorage 2020. This is where the REAL CHANGES to the entire U.S. constitutional system are written down. Since 2005, I've asked thousands of Alaskans if they've seen or read anything about Anchorage 2020, and all I get back from them are blank stares. Here's how phony communitarians are: according to the Municipality,

"the citizen involvement process that led to adoption of the Anchorage 2020 plan received the 2001 Public Education Award from the American Planning Association."

Arthur Hu in Washington State calls Educational Reform "Educational Deform:"

The Canadian Encylopedia gives a nice overview of the meaning of Social Class and the synthesis that "may eventually emerge":

Many thanks to Paul Barnes at for bringing me back to this topic. And, thanks to Jim Rough for accusing Paul of not knowing enough about change agents to "trash" them. His post on blog led me to do further investigation into his company activities, and in the process of studying his "new" Wisdom Councils in Pt. Townsend, WA, I not only got back on a very important aspect of ACL studies, but I also located my friend Betsy H. She's teaching math and english in a Pt. Townsend Middle School.

For Christian readers, here's a nice "expose" of planned changes by Tony Campolo in Australia.

Wisdom Councils for deliberately dumbed down citizens

I love how the new training centers label themselves as somehow "wiser" than the rest of us. In my neighborhood we have a consortium of groups (including HAARP) that call themselves W.I.S.E. If the goal of WISE groups is to teach us and our children the values of sustainable and managed communities, then what is the goal of groups like the ACL, who teach us and our children not to trust groups that claim to be collectively wise, charitable, and more moral?

It is Christmas morning so I have a lot of other things I should be doing right now, but I was over at for a quick minute and found a post Paul Barnes made about Consensus Building. He linked to a chart called Choice-Creating, on a website called So I couldn't help checking them out a bit more, and I found this:

My friend Betsy H. moved to Pt. Townsend the same time we moved to Seattle. She came and stayed at our house in the city while she took a TOFEL class at UW. Her attitude toward my ACL work in Seattle was typical of most of my friends back in 1999... they scoffed at the notion there was any kind of a "plan" to change America into a communitarian region under a centralized global government. She assumed she could move back to Pt.Townsend and that would get her out of any plans made for Seattle. She insisted (like many did) that my devotion to the ACL was too extreme and she didn't "care what the government does." My steadfast argument that the plans were global and that we had to do whatever we could to stop it were met with stoney silence, confusion, or open hostility. I've never heard from Betsy since she went back to Pt. Townsend in 2001 to have her baby with Aki. I'd love to see their baby, and I'd sure like to know what she thinks about the Port Townsend Wisdom Council, or if she's even noticed they exist (I didn't see her picture so I don't think she was selected to serve yet):

"The Port Townsend Wisdom Council aims to have the following impact:

• Create a bottom-up or grassroots vision for the community
• Create a stronger sense of community and involvement that is intergenerational
• Improve the quality of talking and thinking about important issues facing the community
• Transform the community from an adversarial, crisis-driven culture to a thoughtful, creative and collaborative culture
• Empower students to be active, concerned and creative members of their community
• Create a model for other communities in youth-led civic engagement in partnership with adults
• Have students learn how to dynamically facilitate meetings and convene Wisdom Councils

Our experiments with the Wisdom Council in the public sector are proving that it works! A few of us can revitalize (and maybe reinvent) democracy by involving citizens in a wise and responsible voice of "We the People.""

I sure miss all the people we knew in the Seattle area ... I spent many a Christmas there with my family... turkey and piano at moms, seafood extravaganza at dads... all my sisters and my brother and our friends going bowling and to the movies... visting Patty Wacky Dos and hanging out with all the kids and cousins.. yeah.. we had a lot fun years before we knew anything about the big stupid plan. But then again, we've met some wonderful folks as a result of knowing.

Merry Christmas to dad, mom, all the Friedrichs, Raapanas, Flanarys, Bormans and Woodlands, our generous benefactors in Montana, New Hampshire, Washington and Canada, Old Dog, Jason M. (special thanks for the amazing pkg!!) my ACL buddies: Pete R., Nancy Levant, Chris Gerner, Darren Weeks, Paul Barnes, Michael and JoAnn Shaw, and Bobby Garner, and then the old N.E. 65th Street gang: Betsy H., Jeri D., Michele F., James P., Todd A., Suzanne, the Randall man, Abby, Dave, Byron, Shelly, John, Nancy Rising, Hugh(???) and especially sister Susan... wherever you all are today you can be sure we're having a fond memory of a time spent with you. In this remote, quiet place we call home, it's easy to sit and conjure up images. No TV or traffic noise around here to distract from my ability to recall audio, visuals, laughter, specific feelings, looks, glances, smiles, smells, and tastes. As a 51 year old free American, I have a generous supply of wonderful past experiences in this lifetime. That's why it doesn't matter much to me that I don't have a "normal" life. I have a lot to be thankful for that can never be measured. And as an all time bonus, I have a daughter and a grandson here who will keep me singing Christmas carols all day long. It's all good here, thanks to so many for thinking of us too.

The ISBNs are here!!!! 2020 books coming asap! Thanks Montana!!!!

China-Vietnam trade corridor to displace 25,000

Merry Christmas to all our friends and supporters! We hope all of you have a place to call home. God bless the people trying to save their nations from global communitarian integration.

What do Trade and Wildlife Corridors have in common? They're both innovative ways to take private and public property, and to control all land and resources along the route.

According to Dr. Amitai Etzioni, the world needs a new level of governance. That's because the world has become so complex only bankers, investors and economists can understand it. Highly skilled international traders should not have to abide by archaic national constitutions in these changing times. Every nation in the world must be rebuilt into a communitarian union.

Enlightened communitarian thinkers agree that existing governments can't handle the confusing burden of international trade and communitarian environmental law. Etzioni said the "world needs a new global architecture" to make things easier. He advised the creation of "community" governance, a new system that builds new bureaucratic structures at every "community" level.

At the top is the "global community."
International Court of Justice, Hague, Netherlands & International Criminal Court, Rome, Italy, United Nations, Local Agenda 21, The Earth Charter, etc.

Below that is the "regional community."
European Court of Justice, European Community Court of Environmental Law, World Trade Organization (WTO, currently used in pre-integrated nations, will be abolished after the creation of a regional parliment), CAFTA, European Union, Afrcian Union, Middle Eastern Union, Asian Union, North American Union, etc.

At the bottom are all the "local communities."
Citizen Councils, Presidents Council for Sustainable Development, Community Policing, Faith-Based Initiatives, Urban Revitalization, Homeland Security, Communities of Character, Rebuilding Community, Community Economic Development, Smart Growth, Save the "whatever," Neighborhood Watch/Planning, 2020 Visions, Stakeholder groups (that reach consensus), 1000 "Friends" of globalism, etc.

In community trade agreements all signing members must agree to the supremacy of communitarian law. Only self-appointed representatives are part of the decision-making process. If a member nation's voters bring an initiative to reject the agreement, the new justice system allows for a new, quieter agreement that simply negates whatever the voters said. The European Union is the "model" form of regional trade governance. It's copied by all.

It's not really that hard to see the same language and explanations used in every nation: "For more than 13 years NASCO and its members have stood at the forefront of driving public and private sectors to unite to address strategically critical national and international trade, transportation, security and environmental issues."

In the U.S.A., The Trans Texas Corridor project is another one of the communitarian corridor projects underway across the globe.

Alaska's Adventure Corridor is another communitarian highway project. (See Valdez, Alaska's use of the new term:

From Peter Meyer's elist:

For China and Vietnam, a Highway Link Means Speedy Growth


Published: December 14, 2007

"Plans for a four-lane highway from Hanoi to Kunming cleared the last hurdle on Friday when the board of the Asian Development Bank gave the green light to a loan that will underwrite the Vietnamese side of the project.

"By 2012, when the highway is supposed to be completed, a journey that now takes three days by truck could take just nine hours. Goods made in China's Yunnan Province would have quick access to the Vietnamese seaport of Haiphong, and Vietnamese exporters should be able to reach untapped markets in China."

How does the Proposed National Animal Identification system (NAIS) tie into these corridors? The communitarians are doing an inventory of their new "assets." According to communitarians at Northwestern University, we're all unidentified assets that must be harvested for the rebuilt community.

As Darren Weeks explained, there's a lot more going on behind these programs than officials will ever explain. Indeed, ALL government agencies devote space to dispelling the "myths," because of course the idea of a world government is ridiculous, the very idea of it being installed right under our noses is nothing but a wacko conspiracy theory...right?

"George Hunt wrote: “Title to the lands will go to the World Wilderness Land Inventory Trust. This Trust will float into the World Conservation Bank by the unanimous decree of the world’s people, saying, God bless you for saving our reindeer. Those people at the congress were ignorant. They don’t suspect anything. They’re very naïve. Not stupid, ignorant. I’m talking about the 90% that were not the world banking heavyweights.”"

GERTEE means "at home" in Mongolian!

For months Nordica has been looking for a "formal" translation of the word gertee. She's seen it used to imply it meant "at home." But she couldn't locate it in a dictionary for me, and so, being the picky researcher that I am, I wouldn't use it. But now I can! This is really an amazing discovery for me. I combined construction concepts for a ger and a teepee to create a "gertee." A ger uses a roofring-poles-lattice walls=tension, a teepee/tipi uses leaning long poles and an inside liner that creates an upward draft/smoke flow allowing for an open, interior fire. In my first gertee design I considered making a short teepee and putting it on top of ger's lattice walls because I didn't know how to make a roofring. I still think it would work in an emergency.

Many thanks to author Radigan Neuhalfen,

In Mongolian, "ger" means "home."

"Gert" is "ger" declined to mean "at home." The concluding doubled vowel simply adds emphasis: "gert" and "gertee" both mean "at home."

So, "gertee" is not really a thing in Mongolian, but a grammatical construction. Incidentally, this Mongolian "e" (in Cyrillic, a very different letter) is pronounced like a Scottish long clipped "a," such as in "nae." Doubled vowels are pronounced the same as the single vowel, but sounded longer in speech. The pronunciation of "gertee" is approximately "gaer-taeae."

Photos of standard models from Mongol Yurt

Just the frame.

The Mongolians make beautiful doors, don't they?

These kids are from Nomin2007's photo blog.

Mongolian interiors are usually very colorful.

Mongol Yurt's roofrings are way larger than mine.

American Yurts for American Homeland Security?

At Homeland Security, No Money Left Behind

Wednesday, April 12, 2006; Page A02

"Vendors at this week's homeland security convention have the answer for any catastrophe. They will sell you body armor, vehicle barriers, nuclear detectors, manhole-cover locks, unmanned helicopters -- and Kyrgyz yurts."

Why didn't Milbanks mention American Yurt manufacturers, like Spirit Mountain, Rainer, Pacific, Nomad Shelters, etc? Mongolian gers are lovely, but hey.. we make them here in the good ole USA too. Maybe the Department of U.S. Homeland Security would prefer to use U.S. tax dollars to purchase U.S. made products for U.S. disaster victims. Plus, Milbanks' article says a 14 foot high yurt is $10,000 (which tells me nothing of the floor space) and U.S. made 14 foot yurts start around $5000.00 (and of course emergency GERTEES can be made out of scraps and a couple hundred bucks).

GERTEE December 21, 2007.. still standing!

Nord and Freddie waiting for the fire to get going.

Our woodstove burns out after about 4 hours. Now we just learned that a smaller stack, like a 3 inch wide one, would make it last TWICE as long!!! Funny how many things there are we still don't know. We can't wait to try the battery idea we learned from the Mad Hausers, and now Daniel's working on a design to bring cold air in to feed the fire through an "ice box" that makes an inside freezer/fridge. Like Nord said the first time she saw me modify the tent over in Hannsville, WA, "Wow, necessity really is the mother of invention, huh mom?"

I'm getting some notes together for "cooking on a woodstove" since so many visitors are coming in for that search. Seems I'm not the only person who wants to know how it's done. I do all my baking in metal stovetop containers, and I think it's a good thing to know how to do. But, my dream is someday I'll have a real wood cookstove in our cookshackgertee, and I'll fill Gerteeville with the smell of baking bread and cookies! It's been just too cool to look at this gertee through Nordica's eyes, and her contributions to organizing an 18 foot wide space to accomodate 2 adults and one child are invaluable. This is both of our first time living in one, and we absolutely love it in spite of the freezing mornings (which happen to people with cabins and houses too.. duh) . We really had to spend time inside it to know how it wraps around you like a mother holding a child.

We've found a local interior designer, she's a daughter of a great gal I worked with at Tonsina last year, and we can't wait to see what kinds of fabrics and sewing ideas she brings. The idea of GerTee is to encourage people to become inspired by the simple, ancient way to design and make their own space, and lately we've seen a lot of interest in the concept.

It's "sustainable."And, for those who are wondering, a fully equipped (plumbed to code and elect, etc) yurt is approved by HUD. Ger/yurts/GERTEES can be anything from an overnight playhouse-tent to a luxurious full scale home with ALL the modern amenities. The KEY is you can build one based entirely on your budget. Gers can be made from ALL scrap materials if necessary, just look at the pictures of disasters, see all that scrap lumber, windows, doors and curtains laying in heaps.. much of it that's not too water damaged is useable.

Nord wants to design a kid's gertee with rainbow roof beams and padded walls and floors. I want a grandma gertee with lots of room for sewing projects. What kind of gertee do you want to build? We're building gravel tent pads on the back part of the property this spring for our friends who want to come up this summer and build their own. Come visit us in GerTeeville. We'll show you how to make a 14 footer to take home with you for under $500. If there's a lot of interest I'll plan a building seminar-music and arts festival for late August, 2008. We'll open the first live Primitivwerks Bazaar and invite handcrafters from around the world to come show us how to make things. We're into it.

Alaska State begins Premise ID registration

Thanks to Gisela we have a copy of the letter dated November 29, 2007 from the State of Alaska Division of Environmental Health to Alaskan livestock owners. AK sent out requests for registering Alaskan livestock owners in the National Premise Information Repository. This the first step in the USDA's National Animal Identification System (NAIS) initiative. At this time the information is voluntary, but "future trade" and the government's "ability to respond to and manage disease outbreaks depends on this program." For more information on NAIS go to

Does the government's abilty to respond and manage human disease outbreaks require a similar database of humans? Yes, it does. Many prgrams have been introduced that fulfill the need for "more data." (See ACL:COMPASS) Does the Real ID for humans serve the same purpose as NAIS? Heck yeah, and it's not voluntary at all. We're all livestock in this country.

Amercia's first President - John Hanson

I found this link on Old Dog's blog at This research about the first American President is very important to our studies of American's History and will be included on the ACL's American's History page as soon as I get back to updating the ACL. There's so many areas I didn't have time to study or did not have enough information about. If I ever do get back to working on the ACL website I'll be making lots of changes with several new perspectives. We also need to change our mission statement from "we're following our first president's orders." Thanks Old Dog!

Politicans & Banking - What they need to know - Richard Cook

As most of my regular readers know, I do not support or endorse either progressives or conservatives. I can't; I identify all modern "sides" in political debates as potential tools that can be used to help bring on the final Hegelian synthesis, called communitarianism. But that doesn't mean I can't find and use valuable research produced by every "side." And, for what it's worth, the progressive left, in my opinion, usually comes the closest to seeing through the globalists' Hegelian ruse. Richard C. Cook is a great example of this. These monetary and historical banking concepts are the KEY to understanding why the Plan is so successful. We learned very early on in our ACL research that if we didn't study the banking system then we couldn't possibly understand the globalist's plans.

So we spent years trying to understand why the economic system decided upon by President Washington and Alexander Hamilton, i.e "The American System" is so obscured or, if mentioned, scorned and ridiculed. A. Hamilton is accused of having ties to European banks and discarded as an "imperialist," yet Thomas Jefferson (the father of "democracy" who introduced the two-party system) is the one who appointed Swiss banker and eugenicist Albert Gallatin as Secretary of the Treasury. It was Jefferson's Vice-President, Aaron Burr who killed Hamilton in a "duel," for reasons that still remain unknown to us. What's more, the only political party that appears to understand Friedrich List (The National System of Political Economy) and the American system are the communist inspired cult followers called LaRouche Democrats.

Will there ever be a history lesson on American economics that isn't influenced by party propaganda? What was the original American system, and is it even remotely possible we can retrieve it before our entire system collapses? Why was it so important to destroy our National Banking system only to replace it with the private corporation called the Federal Reserve?

The 2008 Presidential Election: Concepts Progressives Must Know About
Monetary Policy and History

by Richard C. Cook

Global Research, December 14, 2007


* The main justification for laissez-faire economics is the unsupported assertion found in Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations that a hidden hand—“Hand, the Invisible”—will benefit the common welfare if individuals within the economic system pursue their own individual interests. This fallacy is the basis of so-called “classical” or “liberal” economics and is also a part of the ideology of the conservative branch of the Republican Party and the theology of its fundamentalist constituency. It is reflected in the view of the “Austrian School” of economics and was the basis for the monetarist policies of the 1970s and the “Reagan Revolution” of the 1980s. It has been disproved countless times by progressive economists. The main problem is that money in a complex economy is so easily manipulated by insiders.

* Opposing laissez-faire economics was what was called in the nineteenth century the “American System.” This was based on Renaissance ideas of nationalism, reflected in Europe by the German and Italian cameralists, who said that the central government had the right and obligation to regulate economic and financial affairs for the benefit of the nation. The most cogent expression of these views was Emmerich Vattel’s The Law of Nations, used as a manual of government at the First Continental Congress in 1775. The New Deal, which created the modern American physical economy until it was wrecked by the Federal Reserve-induced recession of 1979-83 and the “Reagan Revolution,” was a modern expression of the American System.

* The American System was based on actions by government to direct investment into infrastructure development, including health and education. This included government purchase of shares in development corporations and direct funding of projects through tax revenues and
government borrowing.

* During the early to mid-19th century, the American System was funded at the state level of government and saw the building of canals and railroads, improvement of waterways and harbors, turnpikes, etc. The federal government first became involved with infrastructure through the Army Corps of Engineers, then, during the Civil War, with the building of the transcontinental railroad and funding of land-grant colleges. The American System was copied in Germany, Japan, China, and Russia and elsewhere around the world. It was viewed as completely contrary to the British imperialist model.

* The American System as manifested through the New Deal saw the TVA, WPA, CCC, Hoover Dam, funding of school and hospital construction, public water and sewer systems, municipal gas and electric systems, rural electrification, etc. More recent examples were the interstate highway system, R&D investment, the manned space program, and creation of the internet. Today there are no more such projects serving as economic drivers for the U.S.

So if the American System developed by Hamiliton and Washington was viewed as "completely contrary to the British imperialist model," then what was Jefferson's system?

Anchorage wildlife

Went by our old house in Anchorage and the moose next door has a new calf. Is this is why Anchorage 2020 Comprehensive Land Management Plan includes wildlife trails?

Book orders are almost ready! Thanks to everyone who ordered for their patience. We have ten ISBNs ordered, and one barcode, so 2020 can finally go in book stores too. ACL Books is becoming a "real" publishing house and we're starting several new projects. Please send us your feedback and ideas, and we're also considering submissions. Email us for guidelines.

European leaders sign landmark treaty

What does the emerging global government do when citizen refrendums reject their supremacy of communitarian law clause (the basis for authority in the European Union)? Do they amend the proposed constitution and re-submit a modified proposal to the national voters? Heck no. They just get together and sign a new "treaty" that makes all constitutional contracts obsolete.

If Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans want to know how they are losing their sovereignty to the silently emerging North American Union, they need look no further than the trade/treaty processes used to form the EU. The new form of "global justice" is called communitarian law. Why don't the Americans against the NAU/SPP identify the emerging legal system by name? Why can't the people be told what the new system is called and what it's based upon?

By Tony Barber in Brussels
updated 10 minutes ago

European Union leaders on Thursday signed a treaty designed to strengthen the bloc's institutions and put behind them the worst crisis in the 50-year history of European integration.

The leaders of all 27 EU member-states except Gordon Brown, Britain's prime minister, put their names to the treaty at a ceremony in Lisbon's Jerónimos monastery.

Mr Brown, who was attending a parliamentary hearing in London, flew to Lisbon later and signed the treaty on his own. His absence from the main signing ceremony however prompted charges from the opposition Conservative party that the prime minister's "gutlessness" was turning the event into a "national embarrassment.""

According to Eu , there have been six treaties on the way to regional government:

"The six treaties are:
1. The European Communities Act 1972.
2. The Single European Act, 1986.
3. The Maastricht Treaty, 1992.
4. The Amsterdam Treaty, 1997.
5. The Nice Treaty 2001.
6. The European Union Treaty, 2003.

The final treaty has been named and a date has been set to abolish Britain:

The abolition of Britain by The Reform Treaty in 2008

The sixth {seventh?} and final treaty has now been named: its is the Reform Treaty, due to be signed by the Queen in the Summer of 2008. This is a year before the deadline set by the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel.

Merkel and former French President Giscard d’Estaing are among many European ministers who have confirmed the Treaty is the EU Constitution, almost unchanged. If they are right, it will abolish the British Constitution, and therefore the nations of Britain and England, sweeping away our Westminster Parliament, and giving the EU dictatorship the power to close it.

This sixth treaty is the fastest moving and most secret the EU has drafted; opposition to and recognition of the EU as a police state is growing, and they know speed is vital.

The Countdown to abolition

Tony Blair agreed to it on 23rd June 2007 as his final stab in Britain’s back. On the 23rd July there was an Intergovernmental Conference (IGC), when we should have seen a first draft of the Treaty.

Foreign ministers agreed its terms on 7-8th September at the resort of Viana de Castelo, Portugal. There was a summit in Lisbon on the 18th and 19th October, where they hoped to sign the Treaty, but Gordon Brown now signs on December 13th 2007.

The Queen and Parliament to abolish Britain summer 2008

Parliament begins the ratification in February 2008 and has allocated 29 days to discuss this treaty and its own abolition. They could well vote in March. The Queen plans to give her Royal Assent in June 2008. This means Westminster will pass the treaty, and the Queen will sign it behind our backs, as they have the other five treaties.

No referendum

German Chancellor Merkel chose this sixth Treaty instead of pushing through it’s constitution to avoid referendums in its member nations. She twice visited 10 Downing Street and forced Gordon Brown to cancel both his promised referendum, and his General Election.

Whereas the 465 page EU Constitution would have abolished the five treaties and replaced them with a single document conferring absolute power, the Reform Treaty adds to the existing five treaties, bringing them up to the powers of the EU Constitution. All six treaties with appendices will add up to something like 100,000 complex and unreadable pages.

The EU remains illegal

Each of these six treaties are completely illegal under the British Constitution, our 1689 Bill of Rights, our treason laws, and under our common law. It is unforgivable that the Queen, her Ministers and our Parliament have committed the criminal act of treason by signing these treaties, and broken our laws to abolish our nation.

The EU will always be illegal in Britain; but once the EU has complete power and control here, we can no more get rid of it than we could Germany, had their planned illegal occupation of Britain in 1940 been successful.

You have one year left

Treason is the most serious of all Britain’s crimes. You have just one year left to bring these vile British traitors to justice, and get us out of the EU dictatorship.

Around 45 million British people are against the abolition of our nation, and with the little European voting that has been allowed, it seems clear over 200 million of its victims don’t want the EU. But we will never be given the choice. YOU have to decide to act yourself.

There are ways to stop the EU - see "Your Campaigns" on the left. Then we will need a mass blockade of Westminster to stop our criminal MP's and Queen breaking our constitution and laws for the last time.

Alaskan Republicans may support Ron Paul

Alaskans may nominate fringe candidate
(the word "fringe" is used just in case we think he's an approved CFR candidate)

by Channel 2 News Staff
Monday, Dec. 10. 2007

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- In a poll conducted Monday, Dec. 10, Channel 2 News asked which GOP presidential candidate Alaskan Republicans plan to support in the Super Tuesday caucus.

A slim majority of respondents support Ron Paul, a Texas congressman known for wanting to abolish the IRS and opposing the Iraq War. (Ron Paul is better known for his strong constitutional voting record and his non association with the CFR-Bilderberg groups, the United Nations clansmen, and Skull & Bonesmen.)

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who's surging in national polls as well as Iowa caucus polls, came in a close second.

Which Republican presidential candidate will you support in Alaska's caucus?

Rudy Giuliani -- 14%
Mike Huckabee -- 22%
John McCain -- 9%
Ron Paul -- 29%
Mitt Romney -- 9%
Fred Thompson -- 12%
Other -- 6%

All polls conducted by Channel 2 News and are unscientific. (No kidding)

GERTEEVILLE model prototype, Anchorage 2005

Nordica's recovering some of the old pictures off the crashed laptop. This is a model GERTEE project I started while I was still living in Anchorage. I used clay to mold a roof-ring and bought sticks from the craft store. I tied the khana (walls) together with string (which also works for full-scale models) and used pipe cleaners for the tension cord. I made the door with sticks and Gorilla Glue. It's kind of a trip to look at this little GERTEE now that we're finally living in one.

Iran stops selling oil in U.S. dollars-Reuters-UK

I get a lot of unsolicited email forwards from people who find our work and think they have permission to fill my inbox with whatever they decide I need to see. I've gotten into the habit of sending most all of it to my spambox. But sometimes I open ones from Anon, who sent this:

Iran stops selling oil in U.S. dollars -report
Reuters-Sat Dec 8, 2007 10:10am GMT

"For nearly two years, OPEC's second biggest producer has been reducing its exposure to the dollar, saying the weak U.S. currency is eroding its purchasing power.

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who often rails against the West, has called the U.S. currency a "worthless piece of paper.""

So many things we all need to consider now, and decisions that have to be made quickly.

According to MSNBC, it's not a done deal..

"A day earlier, Saudi Arabia opposed a move by Iran on Friday to have OPEC include concerns over the falling dollar included in the summit’s closing statement after the weekend meeting. Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister even warned that even talking publicly about the currency’s decline could further hurt its value.

"But by Sunday, it appeared that Saudi Arabia had compromised. Though the final declaration delivered Sunday did not specifically mention concern over the weak dollar, the organization directed its finance ministers to study the issue.

"OPEC will “study ways and means of enhancing financial cooperation among OPEC ... including proposals by some of the heads of state and governments in their statements to the summit,” OPEC Secretary General Abdalla Salem el-Badri said, reading the statement."

We are in the final stage of the coup against the American system, and the international bankers who run the private banking cartel called the "federal" reserve have planned our economic collapse for over a century. What will we do when the curtain drops and we see the grand finale in all its horrible manifestations? Will we put our faith in the same people who brought us to our knees?

There IS a reason why the federal government and many states have passed laws granting them the power to confiscate all people, property, and supplies during a "national emergency."

I can't help thinking about Congressman McFadden's "tirade" against the fed where he accused them of "causing the Great Depression." The official response was that yes, the fed DID cause the Great Depression in 1929, but they didn't mean to do it, so McFadden was wrong in accusing them. He wasn't wrong in accusing them of DOING it, but in doing it WILLFULLY. When the Rothschild's Bank of England took Germany off the gold standard, the mark became "worthless" as a currency and unemployment skyrocketed to 5 million within six months. Then along came Herr Hitler (funded by the Rothschilds?), who rose to power by rebuilding a national bank and the German economy. This is why many people still see Hitler as a good guy. History shows us that any well-financed murderer who comes along and "restores" the system can be viewed as a "hero." Will Americans keep falling for the same line of b.s. as the German people did?

Hmm. Isn't Hillary Clinton funded by the Rothschild's Bank of England? How well does she know Lynn Forrester de Rothschild (the American who helped turn the Democratic Party into a Third Way communitarian party in 1990, and then married the president of the Bank)?

How long before our people are told the seriousness of our situation? Are we like children who are never included in the grown-up's plans and discussions? Yeah, when the time comes for us to move out of the way of global social progress, all we will be told is what to do and where to go.

And don't go thinking you can run to the forest or the mountains when they start rounding people up in the urban centers... our enemies began locking up our forests a hundred years ago. Nearly all the American wilderness is under the "protection" of the internationalists. The good news is, the greenies in the forests don't carry firearms ('cause the bears are their friends). The bad news is, all our U.S. forest rangers are sniper trained by the Israelis.

Potential use of the Homeland Terrorism Act of 2007

H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007

When this proposed bill was first brought to my attention I was immediately struck by the way it defines the activities of Amitai Etzioni, his Communitarian Network and all their affiliate groups, like COPS, the Mossad, the KGB, the EU, the European Court, the WTO, the CFR&TC, the PNAC, and the New Democrats, et. al. Now I've noticed others are realizing this Act can become a potential weapon against the globalist traitors operating inside the U.S. government.

From the text:

"2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization' means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change.

"`(3) HOMEGROWN TERRORISM- The term `homegrown terrorism' means the use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

"`(4) IDEOLOGICALLY BASED VIOLENCE- The term `ideologically based violence' means the use, planned use, or threatened use of force or violence by a group or individual to promote the group or individual's political, religious, or social beliefs."

How I see this:

Amitai Etzioni promotes an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious and social change. His "idea" for creating a whole new police force is called "Community Policing." Etzioni's friendly neighborhood "problem oriented policing" uses Israeli-KGB trained SWAT cops to enforce communitarian behavior laws. Crime prevention programs ( including HUD's Weed & Seed) target individual citizens for removal from the community. Perfected in low-income and HUD neighborhoods, this scanning and analysis based program gathers "annecdotal data" during informal "knock-and-talk" interviews. This data is entered into a GIS mapping program that merges it will all other "known"data and performs, among other things, "potential for crime analysis." Community cops across the globe are members of neighborhood watch groups and community development associations... their primary purpose is to "teach" local officials how to incorporate the new principles for protecting the quality of life in the community, and then help to enforce the vision.

(It's no coincidence that Brad Pitt is following Angelina Jolie's lead into promoting the UN vision in New Orleans. Why should the former residents of NO give a hoot about Brad's "vision" for rebuilding their city? Come on, is it really Brad's vision, or does it follow UN Local Agenda 21?)

Best use abatements, public nusiance abatements, revisions to noise regulations, landlord training acts, public health warrants, entry orders, ABCD interviews, and knock-and-talks are all communitarian programs that violate the 4th and 5th Amendment Rights of U.S. state citizens. (Yet the U.S. federal courts are upholding these new property takings and privacy invasion actions by "local" police. According to them, the Bill of Rights must be "balanced." )

We have confirmed that Etzioni's Hegelian Ideas have terrorized countless innocent Americans (and Iraqis). If this legislation passes the U.S. Senate, Americans could have just the tool we need to bring CRIMINAL CHARGES against the real terrorists in our midst. The COMPASS program violates the entire Privacy Act of 1974. The ones who are changing our justice system into a communitarian police state are verifiably terrorists, and if we don't do something to put a crimp in their plans pretty damn quick, many of our people will lose everything.

Speaking of legal actions... We the People and Bob Schultz are on the U.S. Supreme Court docket. Anyone who hasn't read their Petitions for Redress of Grievances is missing out.

Communitarian Justice: Preventing Crime

From our friend Darren Weeks we got a link to DOJ's ongoing communitarian justice pilot tests. Not suprising is to learn the Weed & Seed program is still very much a part of the actual U.S. integration under EU Communitarian Law. The American system of law is based entirely on individual property rights; the communitarian system of law is based entirely in witchcraft. My first impression of the new crime "prevention" programs was of a high-tech soothsayer, and it hasn't changed. Here's a "sneak" preview of what's coming to a neighborhood near you:

"The hypotheses about community- and problem-oriented-policing are less focused than the others, so much so that some observers have even advised against trying to test them (Moore 1992: 128). " {Chapter 8-Community versus Problem-Oriented Policing}

U.S. Economy-- Impending Destruction

GerTee's glassfront door in 30 below zero, F.

As the communitarian's economic backdrop falls into play, we move closer to the crisis that will heighten the "need" for a new currency and help to foster a new trading partnership between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. The news is so bad lately we're wondering how many months (as opposed to years) before we're burning worthless federal reserve notes as fuel for the woodstove. I sure hope everyone has a financial plan B.

Did my interview on Jeff Rense. We talked about GerTee's possibilities as a solution to homelessness. He asked the right question: What if you took ten acres and built 100 of these with the sanitary infrastructure included? Now we don't have any of that here...we haul firewood and clean liquids in, and we haul all ashes and brown water to the outhouse. People don't "need" indoor plumbing to have a home.. it's just one of those wonderful American expectations that I would SO, SO love to have right now that it's 30 below. Rense is an unusual NWO researcher because he's interested in exposing communitarianism, especially after he saw how powerful and imaginative they can be when they're stealing local resources. My apologies to the ladies... I may have accidentally swore at the end of the show. Nordica was here bugging me and I lost track of the interview. You can take the bartender out of the bar.. but you can't take the bar out of the ex-bartender.

"Innovating Our Way to Financial Crisis"


"The financial crisis that began late last summer, then took a brief
vacation in September and October, is back with a vengeance.

"How bad is it? Well, I’ve never seen financial insiders this spooked —
not even during the Asian crisis of 1997-98, when economic dominoes
seemed to be falling all around the world.

"This time, market players seem truly horrified — because they’ve
suddenly realized that they don’t understand the complex financial
system they created."

"Impending Destruction of the US Economy"

By Paul Craig Roberts

"11/28/07 "ICH" -- --- Hubris and arrogance are too ensconced in Washington for policymakers to be aware of the economic policy trap in which they have placed the US economy. If the subprime mortgage meltdown is half as bad as predicted, low US interest rates will be required in order to contain the crisis. But if the dollar’s plight is half as bad as predicted, high US interest rates will be required if foreigners are to continue to hold dollars and to finance US budget and trade deficits.
