David v Goliath in Iowa’s First Congressional District


The choices we’ve been given by the two-party system have left us very little choice in the November election! Both of our congressional candidates are lawyers. If the only place you get information from is the television you’re really missing out on some potentially good candidates that could help us turn this country around! Why aren’t all the candidates going to be presented to us in the debates?

The two attorneys vying for our votes are busy spending their money to get you to vote for them in the 2012 election by airing attack ads against each other. Wouldn’t their money be better spent on telling us what they will do instead of telling us what the other one will do or has done wrong? Attack ads on television are expensive and annoying but with this money and their advertisements they have the ability to create a illusion that there is only two candidates in this race. I’ve heard enough attack ads between Romney and Obama! Lange and Braley just added to it!

Who is Greg Hughes and what does he believe in? Greg Hughes is a factory worker who spends his free time helping people who get caught up in the family court system. He believes in hard work, strong families, and fiscal responsibility. Greg Hughes has run a Tae Kwon Do school and has helped people through a volunteer pro-se clinic in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Greg Hughes helps people help themselves.

Our children and grandchildren cannot afford the perpetual debt that these politically savvy lawyers have gotten us into. “One of the things I think that bothers me the most is the destruction of the family unit.” says Hughes. “For example, a grandmother was denied custody of her grand-daughter. Why? Because she was “low-income”. “Since when was that ever a reason to take away a families rights?” “Meantime the courts give abused children to strangers everyday through the foster care system.” More stories about Iowa families are available on this webpage: http://www.usajudicialreform.com/ for more stories.

Iowa families have been through hell over the last twenty years. My best friend has had her children removed and returned three times by the Department of Human Services! Why? Because some social workers (who didn’t even have children of their own) decided that it would be in the “best interest of the children”. Family courts removed my best friends children from their mother and put them with strangers! One of her daughters was only five years old when the family courts placed her in a foster home. While she was in a house of strangers she was sexually abused! Instead of questioning the foster home the police and DHS went after family her members! DHS and the family courts ended up putting this little girl in a “sex offender treatment facility” when she was FIVE YEARS OLD. YES, AFTER SHE WAS ABUSED IN A FOSTER HOME! What kind of agency puts a five-year old little girl in a sex offender treatment facility after she was abused? The kind that doesn’t want to admit their own guilt for putting the child in an unsafe home that they chose! We need reform!

According to Hughes, the Chair of the Child Support Advisory Committee to the Supreme Court of Iowa “The Supreme Court is asking for an increase of $175 million of our tax money to continue running their ineffective dysfunctional court system that systematically destroys families.” Hughes claims that “nearly a billion dollars is circulated through our court system every year.”

“We have judges sleeping at the bench screwing up people’s lives! We’ve even had a judge with a brain tumor ruling on people’s livelihood!” said Hughes. “It’s time to retire bad judges and throw all the lawyers out of elected offices!”

I couldn’t agree more! This race is like the Local Option Sales Tax race in Cedar Rapids (both of them). The other teams have a lot of money to air attack ads but we aren’t asking for your money to run attack ads all we’re asking for is your vote in November. Vote Greg Hughes for Iowa Congress.

Journalist Adam Mueller aka Ademo Freeman faces 21 years in Prison in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state for Bogus Wiretapping Charge


There is a Cedar Rapids connection to the cop watching journalist, Adam Mueller, who will face a jury in a trial next week on a New Hampshire wiretapping case. If convicted, Adam faces up to twenty-one years in prison.

I came into contact with Copblock.org a little more than a year ago when I wasn’t getting results from my local police department. I submitted a speech to Copblock.org that I had already delivered in front of my city council on June 14, 2010. My hope was that the national exposure would create positive change in our community and in my opinion it has. http://www.copblock.org/tag/ajai-dittmar/

Adam Mueller aka Ademo Freeman, was the person in which I had exchanged a few emails with before the speech was published on Copblock.org. Adam or Ademo of Copblock.org is dedicated to voluntarism and police accountability.

Adam’s charges stem from an incident he reported on that took place in a New Hampshire High School where a sibling spat turned bad when a Police Liaison slung the teen around and then slammed his head into a table at the schools cafeteria.

I don’t know whether officials are charging Adam with wiretapping to teach him and people like him a lesson or if they are trying to cover up something bigger at the high school. In my opinion, the school should be looked into along with the police liaison over the school. As a mother I would be appalled if either one of my son’s were slammed to the table at lunch over teasing their sister with her handbag. I could see my kids doing exactly what these kids did which in my opinion is perfectly normal.

Of fifty states, twelve of them make publicizing taped interviews a crime punishable by prison New Hampshire, the Live Free or Die state is on that list. One would think that in this day and age with all the technological advances we’ve made that these types of draconian laws would be thrown out.

Adam’s supporters were there in the courtroom with him after standing outside the courthouse in protest. Adam is representing himself pro se (defending himself without an attorney) and his jury was chosen on Monday, August 6, 2012. A camera was allowed into the courtroom.

Stop the State of New Hampshire from convicting Adam, write his lawmakers, make videos asking for his freedom, and spread the word about this case! http://electedlist.com/New_Hampshire.html

I wrote Adam a letter and thanked him for all he has done. The world is not a safer place with Adam behind bars. The trial begins on August 13, 2012. I will keep everyone who’s interested posted. http://www.scribd.com/collections/3735171/The-State-of-NH-vs-Adam-Mueller-aka-Ademo-Freeman here is Adam’s paperwork from the courts. If you have any ideas that could help Adam please don’t hesitate to contact Copblock.org

Meantime use the hashtag #FreeAdemo and help remind people these draconian laws still exist! http://www.copblock.org/18955/ademos-jury-selection-done-trial-in-one-week/

By the way, for my local news agencies, CNN has reported the story and it would be nice if you mentioned it too. http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-824678

Media Blackout on Troops who Rallied for Ron Paul in Washington DC on President’s Day


I have never been as proud to be an American as I am now and that wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for our troops and their passion for Ron Paul.

Our troops were warned:

It has come to our attention that a partisan political march targeting
military personnel is being organized for February 20, 2012. See link

More than 18,000 people were invited to attend to attend the “RON PAUL IS THE CHOICE OF THE TROOPS! (march on the White House)”. Two-thousand-one-hundred and fifty-one people committed to going to the march while 964 people clicked maybe.

I tweeted Sean Hannity and Bret Baier of Fox News two days before the rally took place to get their take on the story and got nothing.

I didn’t think the mainstream media could disappoint me anymore than they already have. When the special news report came in on the television they said nothing about what was going on in Washington DC with our troops and instead talked about war propaganda in Iran.

The troops stood up for our freedoms for the first time that I know of, inside our own borders and it wasn’t even considered newsworthy?

I don’t understand what is wrong with our media!

I tweeted CNN Wolf Blitzer, Brooke Baldwin, and even went as far as accusing CNN of ignoring it on purpose! I told them that they were losing credibility by the minute

I was fortunate enough to watch this unfold live on the internet thanks to feeds available from livestream and Ustream.tv but not one word has been uttered on the television.

Here was my take on the thing.

On February 20, 2012, on Presidents Day, our troops gathered for a rally in Washington DC to march in support for their candidate of choice, Ron Paul.

I was moved to tears as our troops marched in formation on our nation’s capitol shouting “President Paul”, “end the FED”, “end these wars”, and “Ron Paul revolution legalize the Constitution”.

For the first time since 9/11 I felt American Pride! It is the most patriotic event I’ve ever saw in my life.

Our troops stood silent and saluted for eight straight minutes to honor those who committed suicide since the Obama Administration took office. It was eerie to think about because for every second that passed a veterans life was lost due to suicide was honored.

Our troops challenged the legal advice given to them and I am thankful they did.

“We the people” must stand against this tyrannical government and the corrupt monetary system that has wreaked havoc all over the world. We can no longer say nothing or what freedom we do have will be forever gone.


Mainstream Media Failure


I have waited three years for the presidential elections to begin and was excited about attending my first Straw Poll that was to be held in Ames Iowa, on August 13, 2011. Iowa is not a very exciting place, so when you have hundreds of thousands of people from all over the state driving miles to come together in one place to have a little face to face time and more than 17,000 people show up you better bet that it’s a big deal!
Mainstream media just turned the most ‘unimportant important political events of a presidential cycle’ into a pivotal political speaking point. Those of us from the Midwest want people to know that mainstream media failed you!
Why isn’t mainstream media beating down Ron Paul’s door asking for interviews? Why are they chasing the gun toting Texas cowboy, Rick Perry, across the country ignoring the only candidate who can beat President Obama, Ron Paul? Why the blackouts on the other winner of the Iowa Straw Poll—Ron Paul—the plain guy talking about liberty and the Constitution who didn’t offer a free country western concert. What is mainstream media so afraid of? What else have they been hiding from us?
At this point I am livid. I feel that mainstream media made a mockery of our political process and bases their ‘news’ on half truths and this illusion that our presidency is based on some superficial popularity contest.
Social media is here to stay while the days of mainstream media are numbered. Social media is the next best thing to face to face communication in such a technological world. Research all your candidates and make an informed decision before you trust anything that comes through to your television because I guarantee you’re not hearing the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!

Media Ignoring Ron Paul
