Tantra Maat
Tantra Maat
Guest Occupation: 
Mystic, Seer and Prophet
Guest Biography: 

Tantra Maat is a mystic, a seer and a prophet. Her personal and universal mission is to return our minds and our bodies to their Original Design which is the design that we are as the activity of Creation itself. She restores this innate capability at the cellular level, and through neural stimulation, through what is known as Cellular Empathy. Tantra acts as an Agent of Creation helping to restore in others their own unique agency.

Tantra’s memories, not limited to this lifetime, go back ten thousand years. She remembers dreaming herself forward into these times. She knows she was birthed for this present moment of now, hence her role as prophetess – not as one predicting possible futures, but as one who is the living embodiment of the future calling.

Tantra’s mystical nature moves with the Earth. By travelling the world she supports the strengthening of grids that hold higher consciousness. Her affinity is with both Mother Divine and Mother Earth.

Tantra is also a modern day magi. She recognizes and bonds with what is inspirited (filled with spirit) and invites people into that bond through personal and group work.

Tantra is nationally and internationally known for her otherworldly wisdom. She is featured as Francesca in Jalaja Bonheim’s book, Aphrodite’s Daughters: Women’s Sexual Stories and a Journey of the Soul. Tantra has written two books of her own: An Irish Tale of a Modern Mystic and The Language of Creation.

She does her work by phone and in person, in the company of her dog Lily.

In keeping with the title of his bestselling book – Real Age: Are You as Young as You Can Be? -  Dr. Michael Roizen wants to help people keep their youthful vigor long past the point when it all too often fades.  Simply put, he wants to guide them towards putting a gap between their biological age and their real age which can be determined by filling out a survey at

This survey not only - takes into account the usual suspects - blood pressure, cholesterol level, blood glucose level – that are thought to be markers of somebody’s physical health. It also calculates into the equation whether somebody has a pet or regularly spends time with friends and how many hours sleep they get.

And the best part: Dr. Roizen maintains that your real age is not simply determined by your genes. You can push into more positive grounds by learning healthier living habits.  Suggestions that can help you move in positive directions abound on the web site.

Guest Occupation: 
equine analyst
Guest Biography: 

All too often, a well trained horse that was once a wonderful riding partner begins developing a bad attitude. A good horse has gone bad and the joy of spending time with her has become a thing of the past. After that happens, the horse might be taken to a trainer; the problem who “corrects” the problem or the animal might be put out to pasture until she “heals” herself over time.

When those two strategies have proved in effect, Eddie Crothers, an equine analyst, might be contacted in the hopes he can make that horse manageable. And often he can rise to that challenge by uncovering pain the animal might be experiencing, discomfort that prevents it from performing at its maximum. Crothers does not claim that he can perform miracles but he does point with pride to his record of “salvaging” horses. Their behavior has, for example, improved immensely after an aching back or an infected foot was healed.

Recent history has shown that America is a presidential dictatorship, abetted by a cowardly Congress and graced by a corrupt Supreme Court.  It has masqueraded as a democracy and as a republic and as a nation guided by “the rule of law.”  But the law is only for us, the people, to obey and be controlled.  The lawmakers and law enforcers make and enforce the law on the orders of our deadly enemies.  The law is a weapon in the hands of our enemies.  We are actually under the law of the gun.

There are two political philosophies in America.  One philosophy is that government is necessary and as such deserves to be voted on and validated periodically.  This philosophy includes the idea that government is a necessary evil and needs to be tamed by electing “good new people” to keep it under control due to the naturally corrupting nature of government.  But as we all can see, with untold trillions of dollars of government debt to the private Federal Reserve, Communist China and others, the government is out of control and has been for a hundred years.  The government lies us into war after war and has slaughtered millions of people just in the last twenty years and produced a million US casualties out of two and a half million troops who were in the two Moslem wars.  The government has lied us into a fraudulent version of socialist medicine which has already caused millions to lose their hard-earned health insurance policies with nothing to replace them.  This new attempt at socialist medicine was planned to be run by the IRS, which can’t even run itself without committing major crimes. 

All of this and much more were made possible by a hundred years of voting.  I say one hundred years because that is exactly how long it’s been since our elected representatives voted to make the Federal Reserve Act into “law.”  This criminal act mmediately led to a century of ghastly war that is ongoing.

At last count, there were about 150 million registered voters.  About 127 million of them voted in the 2012 election.  There are about 207 million Americans who are eligible to vote and of them about 80 million did not vote in that election.  Many of the voters vote out of habit or resignation with the excuse that the lesser of two evils would be better to have power over us than the greater of two evils.  Once in office, however, the lesser of two evils always becomes the great evil. 

The other philosophy is that the government is our main and most dangerous enemy and must not be supported in any way, especially by voting.  Those 80 million non-voters make up our base, whatever the actual reasons they did not vote may be.   At least they didn’t contribute to the corruption by voting.  A non-voting political party dedicated to the shutting down of the suicidal and catastrophic federal system would give Americans an actual means to unlatch the homicidal parasites from our veins and bank accounts.  All government is life-destroying cancer but nothing compares with the US federal government for fraud, theft, waste, spying and mass murder.  A non-voting party would formalize the idea that federalism must be outlawed.  

The issue would become Government or No Government, one or the other, because we can easily see where constitutional government has put us.  The new party wouldn't put people in federal office because we want to do away with the federal government and you can't do that as a part of government.  The political climate in America is ripe for radical change.  The Neo-Cons who took control of the Bush and Obama administrations have brought only chaos and hardship to America and mass death and misery to the peoples of the world.  The Neo-Cons have plotted to rule the world for decades but once in power demonstrated only ineptitude and failure at everything other than destruction.

The American Defense Party would replace the Constitution with Articles of Confederation – a modern version of the original.   There would be no central government to enforce the private central bank, both of which would be abolished forever.  The one legitimate function of the remaining Treasury Department – appropriated by the Confederation – would be to create and distribute debt-free currency (Kennedy’s 1963 US Note).  That would be one of the first  principles of the party platform.

The party would eliminate the web of control used by the central federal government to destroy us and others through relentless totalitarian laws, regulations and executive orders.  The warlords of Washington must be put out of business permanently.  The war industry and all its satellites would be outlawed by the Confederation.  The Confederation itself would be a voluntary one – any states not wishing to join would be free not to.

Why have a party if there's no one to vote for?  For a sense of identity and camaraderie and communications and organization and a common declaration and agreement of purpose.  And for organized defense against aggression.  Party members would be supported and defended by fellow members if attacked.  A position on subversion and treachery can be given once our traditional enemies inevitably react the way they always do.The party would face a lot of danger and violence.  That in itself would justify its existence and its advertised purpose of self-defense.

The party would stand for everything that's healthy and against all the brutality and corruption in government.  America lost all its good jobs because of the federal government.  So if someone were to say, "But what will we do without a federal government?" the answer would be, "We'll prosper."  We have lost our basic right to privacy to the federal government and that right there is reason enough to abolish it forever.  No central government was the whole idea behind the American Revolution.  The central government has announced its plans to arrest us and assassinate us, totrap us in a non-functioning socialist medical system that would only destroy our health, run by the most notorious financial terrorists in US history, the IRS, and I don't need to go on.  So, no, we don't need a central government and probably can't survive much longer with the one we have.  

It must be dismantled and prohibited forever.  This can be done by a strong, well-armed  political party when its numbers approach those of the militia movement of the 1990s. The party would be very militant; it would have to be to survive.  When it gets to the size, say, of the militia movement of the '90s, it would be strong enough to overthrow the federal government, which was never the declared goal of the militia.  A militant political party that large wouldn't really need violence - it could issue an ultimatum.  But there would be violence along the way to this massive size, and the violence would attract tough people to the party.

The party would be concerned with national defense against treason and be against all military aggression, sabotage and espionage, which would mean the end of the deadly, tax-supported military industry.  Everything the federal government does would end, such as foreign aid, protecting Monsanto and the deadly AMA.  Everything, because one thing the federal government doesn't do now is supply our currency, the only thing it should be doing.

ELLEN BROWN - Green Party Candidate for Treasurer of California 2014

"From Austerity to Prosperity: Why I'm Running for California State Treasurer in 2014" by Ellen Brown

Governor Jerry Brown and his staff are exchanging high-fives over balancing California’s budget, but the people on whose backs it was balanced are not rejoicing. The state’s high-wire act has been called “the ultimate in austerity budgets.”

Welfare payments, health care for the poor, and benefits for the elderly and disabled have been slashed. State workers have been downsized. School districts in need of cash have been reduced to borrowing through “capital appreciation bonds” bearing 300% interest. In one notorious case, the Santa Ana school district actually borrowed at 1,000% interest. And the governor acknowledges that California still faces a “wall of debt” amounting to $28 billion. Some analysts put it much higher than that.

At the end of the 20th century, California was ranked the sixth largest economy in the world. By 2012, it had slipped to number twelve. It is coming back up, in part because European countries are falling further into recession; but California’s poverty rate remains the highest in the country. More than eight million Californians struggle to meet their daily needs, and one in four children lives in poverty. Income inequality is higher in the nation’s most populous state than in almost any other.

California cannot solve its budget problems by slashing services that have already been cut to the bone or raising sales taxes that hurt the poor far more than the rich. We are fighting over a pie that remains too small. The pie itself needs to be expanded – and it can be.

How? By reclaiming that portion that is now siphoned off in interest and bank fees.  When tallied up at every stage of production, interest has been calculated to claim one-third of everything we buy.

How can that money be recaptured?  By owning the bank.Peoples_Bank.jpg

The approach was pioneered in North Dakota, the only state to escape the 2008 banking crisis. North Dakota has the lowest unemployment rate in the country, the lowest foreclosure rate, the lowest default rate on credit card debt, and no state debt at all. It is also the only state to own its own bank.

In the fall of 2011, a bill for a feasibility study for a state-owned bank passed both houses of the California legislature. The Public Banking Institute, which I founded and chair, was instrumental in helping to get the bill as far as it got.  But it died when Jerry Brown vetoed it.  His rationale was that we already have a banking committee, and that the matter could be explored in-house. Needless to say, however, we have heard no more about it since.  

I am therefore running for California State Treasurer on a state bank platform, along with Laura Wells, who is running for Controller. We are throwing our bonnets in the ring for the opportunity to show the Governor or his successor that a state-owned bank can be our ticket to returning California to the abundance it once enjoyed.

I was a recipient of that abundance myself. I got my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley in the 1960s, when tuition was free; and my law degree at UCLA Law School in the 1970s, when tuition was $700 a year.  Today it is $13,000 and $45,000 annually, respectively, for in-state students.  In the 1960s, the governor of California was Jerry Brown’s father Pat Brown, a New Deal visionary who believed that investment in education, infrastructure and local business was an investment in the future.  Our goal is to revive that optimistic vision in 2014.

We are running on the endorsement of the Green Party – along with Luis Rodriguez for governor and David Curtis for secretary of state – because Green Party candidates take no corporate money. Candidates who take corporate money – and that means nearly all conventional candidates – are beholden to large corporate interests and cannot properly represent the interests of the disenfranchised 99%.

The North Dakota Model: Banking that Supports Rather Than Exploits the Local Economy

California’s revenues are currently parked in those very largest of corporations, Wall Street banks. These out-of-state banks use our giant asset pool for their own speculative purposes, and the funds are at risk of confiscation in the event of a “bail-in.”

In North Dakota, by contrast, all of the state’s revenues are deposited by law in the state-owned Bank of North Dakota (BND). The BND is set up as a DBA of the state (“North Dakota doing business as the Bank of North Dakota”), which means all of the state’s capital is technically the bank’s capital. The bank uses its copious capital and deposit pool to generate credit for local purposes.

The BND is a major money-maker for the state, returning a sizable dividend annually to the treasury. Every year since the 2008 banking crisis, it has reported a return on investment of between 17 percent and 26 percent. The BND also provides what is essentially interest-free credit for state projects, since the state owns the bank and gets the interest back. The BND partners with local banks rather than competing with them, strengthening their capital and deposit bases and allowing them to keep loans on their books rather than having to sell them off to investors. This practice allowed North Dakota to avoid the subprime crisis that destroyed the housing market in other states.

Consider the awesome potential for California, with its massive capital and deposit bases. California has over $200 billion stashed in a variety of funds identified in its 2012 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), including $58 billion managed by the Treasurer in a Pooled Money Investment Account currently earning a meager 0.264% annually. It also has over $400 billion in its pension funds (CalPERS and CalSTRS).

California’s population of 37 million is more than 50 times that of North Dakota. In 2010, the BND had about $4,500 in deposits and $4,200 in loans per capita.  Multiplying 37 million by $4,200, a State Bank of California could, in theory, generate $155.4 billion in credit for the state; and this credit would effectively be interest-free free, since the state would own the bank.

What could California do with $155 billion in interest-free credit? One possibility would be to refinance its ominous “wall of debt” at 0%. A debt that is interest-free can be rolled over indefinitely without cost to the taxpayers.

Another possibility would be to fund public projects interest-free. Eliminating interest has been shown to reduce the cost of public projects by 35% or more.

Take, for example, the San Francisco Bay Bridge earthquake retrofitting boondoggle, which was originally slated to cost about $6 billion. Interest and bank fees wound up adding another $6 billion to the overall cost to taxpayers. Funding through its own bank could have saved the state $6 billion or 50% on this project.

Then there is the state’s bullet train fiasco, which has been beset with delays, cost overruns, and funding issues. As with the Bay Bridge, costs are projected to double as a result of compounding interest on long-term bonds, imposing huge hidden costs on the next generation of taxpayers. By funding the bullet train through a state-owned bank, its costs, too, could be reduced by 50%.

Public banking models globally and historically are explored in my books The Web of Debt (first published in 2007) and The Public Bank Solution (published in 2013). I have also written over 200 articles on this and related subjects, which can be found on my blog at

Shock waves from one Wall Street scandal after another have completely disillusioned us with our banking system; yet we cannot do without banks. Nearly all money today is simply bank credit. Economies run on it, and it is created when banks make loans. The main flaw in the current model is that private profiteers have acquired control of the credit spigots. They can cut off the flow, direct it to their cronies, and manipulate it for personal gain at the expense of the producing economy. The benefits of bank credit can be maintained while eliminating these flaws, through a system of banks operated as public utilities, serving the public interest and returning their profits to the public. This book looks at the public bank alternative, and shows with examples from around the world and through history that it works admirably well, providing the key to sustained high performance for the economy and well-being for the people.


Ellen Brown is an attorney, president of the Public Banking Institute, and author of twelve books including the bestselling Web of Debt. In The Public Bank Solution, her latest book, she explores successful public banking models historically and globally. Her 200+ credit blog articles are at She is currently running for California State Treasurer on the Green Party ticket.  Ellen is also hosting a radio show with Walt McRee, “It’s Our Money,” on Progressive Radio Network at noon PST/3pm EST every second Wednesday.

Guest Biography: 

MARK KLEIN is the whistleblower who exposed AT&T’s participation in the National Security Agency’s illegal warrantless spying on millions of Americans.  Klein grew up in New York City and in 1962 entered Cornell University’s School of Engineering. As the 1960s exploded in social upheaval he was moved with his generation to investigate society and graduated in 1966 with a B.A. in history. Later he returned to technical school, obtaining certificates in electronics and computers which led to employment in computer manufacturing in the 1970s.  He was hired by AT&T in 1981 as a communications technician and worked for the company for over 22 years. In 2003, he discovered the illicit NSA installation in San Francisco and three years later brought it to public attention. He retired from AT&T in May 2004, and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife.

ABOUT MARK KLEIN'S BOOK: Wiring Up The Big Brother Machine...And Fighting It

Whistleblower Mark Klein tells the story of the illegal government spying apparatus installed at an AT&T office by the National Security Agency, and his battle to bring it to light and protect Americans’ 4th Amendment rights. After the New York Times revealed in 2005 that the NSA was spying on Americans’ phone calls and e-mail without Constitutionally-required court warrants, the Bush administration openly defended this practice which also violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. All details of the highly secret program remained hidden from the public—until Klein came forward. A technician for over 22 years at telecom giant AT&T, Klein was working in the Internet room in San Francisco in 2003 and discovered the NSA was vacuuming everyone’s communications into a secret room, and he had the documents to prove it. He went to the media in 2006, and then became a witness in a lawsuit brought against the company by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
