The Mental Militia Movie Project
« on: March 15, 2016, 03:29:48 pm »

I have several new topics to share, the first being that The Mental Militia's new national website is much closer to launching. 

In conjunction with our efforts to get the site completed enough to launch, I am needing to do some fund-raising for two projects which are already underway. One project involves our work with Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, about which I will soon make a separate announcement. (We will be helping produce three speaking engagements for AE911Truth in western Montana in the month of April.)

The project which is on today's "front burner" is a documentary film which TMM is creating. The film is about a man whom Montanans know as "Montana's Natural Man". His name is ernie-wayne: ter telgte. He is actively exposing corruption in the court system, and is in and out of jail as if he has his own revolving door. At the moment, he is not in jail. If I can keep him out of jail long enough, we'll be shooting more footage of his public taunts against the court system (and related or parallel matters of interest to all liberty fighters).

But as it stands now, we have more than enough footage to compose a very powerful, and very controversial, documentary film about a fearless man who decided he would not "take it" any more and has been on an excitement-packed campaign to bring to light various levels of corruption in government and in government's court system.

Why I decided to do the movie/documentary on ernie has to do with a little video I shot in a small courtroom at Three Forks, Montana, a couple of years ago. Many of you will most likely have already seen that film on YouTube. Since it went up online it has been spread to other channels on YouTube, with two channels recording the bulk of the total views by the public. The largest number of views is over five million three hundred thousand views. That exact number of views as of this moment is 5,309,849.  That channel is out of Billings, Montana. Another channel from Bozeman, Montana has over 800,000 views. The two together are showing well over six million views.

That shows me that there is an interest in this guy, yes? Indeed, it's a sign that there is a market for more details about "ernie". Fortunately, I've known ernie for about six years, and have shot videos of him during that time, and I have a sizable collection of original raw footage videos, some shot by myself and others shot by friends. So I decided last year to make a movie/documentary on the guy.

Well, what do I know about making movies, eh? Nada! I have been paying what I could to get the movie made, but I live on a very humble and frugal income from Oath Keepers, where I am their national website editor. We have progressed to the point that we now need to raise money to complete the movie, and I have built a page at The Mental Militia's new national website for this. Last night, our webmaster for the national site, Cindy, got the paypal buttons activated to accept donations/contributions directly into The Mental Militia LLC's bank account.

Yes, I have a Montana business license for "The Mental Militia LLC", as you will see. That LLC has a bank account for doing business. I will go into that in coming days, very soon, to explain more about the new national site. Meantime, I'm coming in here to the forums to announce the movie project and solicit support from our members here. I am needing donations to not only help TMM launch the new website but also to help us fund the documentary film.  But to fund the movie, I'll have to send y'all to the new national site, and before sending you there I'd like to simply explain that the site is not quite ready, and will remain a work in progress for a long time after launching.  As registered members here at the forums you are welcome to click around the site and see what is there, but please be aware that there are many "blank spots" or pages which are incomplete at present moment.

That said, I am pleased to invite y'all to go over to this page and check out the trailer for the movie. One last thing -- we are making two more trailers, and this current version has some problems which we'll work out in the next version. The main problem is in two areas -- one is the wording of quoted passages is hard to read because of pictures in the background, and the other is that we need to lower the volume on the soundtrack in a couple of places. We will have a better version up within about a week or less. Thank you for understanding and for being patient.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, and will answer questions as they are posted below. Thank you!

Salute!
Elias

Lots of irons in that fire, Elias! Good luck with them all.

Might address the problem of people who want to donate, but will not use paypal for any reason.  Need an alternative...

Good point ML;

First, I've included on that page a snail mail address where people can send checks/MOs. But additionally, there is a little row of credit card icons beside the words "Payment type". Those who prefer to avoid paypal generally know to just click one of those icons and deal only with their credit card / debit card info.

We are preparing the site to enlist memberships now, and should be announcing the site to the big bad world very shortly.

Promoting this documentary film is a TMM project which will help us with other developments. I'm excited that so many things are coming together now.

Salute!
Elias

I guess that covers all the bases. Hope you get everything you need. :)

When I snail cash I always wrap it in tin foil and over-insure it.  Works like a charm, and if they "lose it", I get back extra for their problem.
Insuring envelopes and packages holds a story which I enjoy sharing with postal clerks down at whatever local post office I chance into. I explain that they declare a charge for delivering my item, which I agree to pay, but then, to make sure they do what I'm paying them to do, and do it properly (such as, not losing or damaging it), they will sell me "insurance".
I've had several clerks declare that "Well, I've never thought of it that way." ;)

That aside, it's best to send checks or money orders, wouldn't you agree?

Salute!

Checks and money orders leave a paper trail. Checks for both payer & payee. Money orders for payee. Cash is anonymous, and allows the payee to choose to not report it, hence avoid taxes.

I would never do that. Why call special attention to your outgoing mail? I've been sending cash for a very long time, usually small amounts. I wrap it in a piece of typing paper and send in a "security" envelop. Never lost any, and never had a problem. Foil might be wise for larger denomination bills, but I'd tend to use a money order in that case anyway.

I don't talk to the postal employees at the post office, and go there as seldom as possible. The man there usually leans wAAAY over the counter to stare at my holster, to be sure I'm suitably unarmed. Bah humbug.

Lucky you. It's a federal felony to carry a firearm into a US Post Office.

I think I'll skip that conversation. :( He's not very nice to begin with.

Awright, y'all!
Sheesh!
This thread has turned into a total drift from the topic of the thread. All this talk about sending cash in the mail and wearing guns into post offices. Dang. Not  a word about the movie trailer or the page I mounted that trailer on.

Diablo Loco, let me be blunt. You come in here asking me to make a written statement calling for sending money by mail. That is a totally stupid thing to do, because as holder of the LLC, you were trying to entrap me into soliciting cash for the project, which, as Bill pointed out, leaves no paper trail. Let me be clear please. I love cash and prefer it over paper stuff or plastic stuff -- but -- there are liabilities which come with registering TMM as an LLC, and neither you nor anyone else here are going to see me put into writing any request that people send cash to me through the U.S. mail for TMM LLC. Got that? I don't know how stupid you think I am, but I can assure you that the Federal government has me in the cross hairs for being at Bundy Ranch and for being editor for Oath Keepers for seven action-packed years. The IRS is aware of TMM LLC and know that it's registered and licensed in my name. Now please tell me what you think about the trailer and the new site, and let's leave off with all the thread-drift. Thank you.

Speaking of thread-drift, this thread is an example of what I dread when I send a lot of new faces to these forums. I am expecting TMM to achieve a large exposure on the Net in the next couple or three months, because the groups I am pulling together have their own email lists and memberships and newsletters etc. We are sitting on the most dynamic cutting-edge organization out there, and because Fedgov has been a very bad boy in recent times, a great awakening is sweeping the nation. We have answers for the multitudes who are awakening, and we are a "Mental" militia, a militia of the mind -- so I'd dearly love to see the focus be on exchange of ideas and info and intel as relate to whichever thread topic one is posting on. Everything here has been relaxed for a long time, years. We need to get sharp and look and act like Mentalitians.

I just drove a thousand mile round trip this past weekend to visit with G. Edward Griffin.



He likes our mission and our format and our message of personal responsibility, self-ownership, and the freedom which comes from that mindset. His Freedom Force International has members in 78 different nations around the world. The man wants to work with TMM, and I would hope that our comments/posts here at the forums would reflect the dignity and care which marks serious-minded self-owning individuals who have informed themselves and understand the threats coming at America today.

I am also working with a number of other powerful voices/organizations, such as Richard Gage at Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth; Mike Adams of Natural News; Basil Fishbone of FIJA; Edwin Vieira, author; DJ of Level 9 News; Patrick Wood of Technocracy Rising; Dan Johnson of PANDA and Solutions Institute; etc etc. Here, go to the welcome page and scroll it please --

https://thementalmilitia.net/welcome/

So I would love to see threads stay on topic because a lot of people who can be helpful to this organization will be reading here. I will not tolerate disrespect for new people who want to help further the TMM mission. I want to see this place peopled by folks who take things seriously. Topic-centric is good for that goal. Thank you.

Salute!
Elias
