It may seem I talk about my film career a lot but up until I haven't really said anything about what I really do for a living. I'm going to express what I do because it makes a very good point about the subject of privacy and government monitoring.
Aside from making music videos, which is my hobby, I have been traveling the country exposing EPA Superfund toxic waste sites in residential neighborhoods and the associated illness clusters. I work in the same field as a peer to Erin Brockovich, essentially. My primary focus is Superfund sites that are managed by The Department of Defense, or defense contractors. Basically, I show up, take on the DOD, The US EPA, state EPA, Mayors, and local newspapers for covering up toxic waste dumps in residential neighborhoods.
Recently, in part, my efforts contributed to the resignation of Scott Nally, the director of The Ohio EPA, after he illegally denied bulk records requests and then was found to have taken bribes from the coal industry. Right now my primary opponents to my work would be Lockheed Martin, Monsanto - for their chromium production, The US EPA Regions 5 & 9, The Defense Logistics Organization. I'm doing work that is working to put state, local, and federal officials out of office.
I'm working on exposing the fact that The DOD poisoned about 60,000,000 Americans with toxic waste while using The EPA to cover up their actions, all confirmed by public records. I'm doing a feature length film about the subject matter narrated by Andrew Tiernan, the guy that plays Ephialtes in the 300 series and was Salzar in The Pianist, called Death Water.
Now, all of that being said, I'm legit as fuck. If you see me in your neighborhood with a camera all hell is about to break loose. You should probably sell your house and count how many friends you have with brain tumors. I'm running around the country exposing defense contractors to billions in lawsuits. Yet, do I worry about being monitored? No. Why? Because I'm not doing anything wrong.
If they are monitoring me it hasn't stopped me from doing a damn thing. I have people around me who constantly try to make me feel like I am doing some covert operation or that my car is going to be mysteriously rammed into a pole at 4am and burst into flames, like the guy a couple of months ago in LA who was about to reveal secrets about the director of the CIA. Is that going to happen? No. Mostly because I don't drive and also because I am not a paranoid freak.
Now, if they are, in fact, monitoring people what are they monitoring them for? They are looking for instances of possible domestic terrorism. Let's say we have a bombing, and then Alex Jones screams, "False Flag" and then 15 million of his followers all get on Facebook screaming about revolution. Gee, who do you think they are going to start monitoring? Julllian Assange said, "Facebook is a CIA spying machine." I, for one, support monitoring in the capacity of protecting ourselves inside our own boundaries from another Timothy McVeigh, or Ted Kazinski. If there are NSA people monitoring me I hope they are, at least, entertained.
I remember trying to explain this to a group of Alex Jones followers, trying to explain that when you scream on the internet about overthrowing the government that you could potentially be exposing yourself to surveillance from the NSA. They got angry at me, said I was "COINTEL PRO" and that I was working for the CIA to disrupt their "important work towards revolution." That's cute. Dear CIA, PAY me.
