Cody studies at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin. He is a
student of Bastiat, Hoppe, and Anthony de Jasay, and in all things
works toward realizing a private law society.
He is co-founder of Defense Distributed
Defense Distributed is a pending
501(c)(3) status nonprofit corporation in the state of Texas, organized
and operated exclusively for charitable and literary purposes.
The specific purposes for which this corporation is organized are:
To defend the civil liberty of popular access to arms as guaranteed by
the United States Constitution and affirmed by the United States Supreme
Court, through facilitating global access to, and the collaborative
production of, information and knowledge related to the 3D printing of
arms; and to publish and distribute, at no cost to the public, such
information and knowledge in promotion of the public interest.
Defense Distributed presents 'Bitcoin Dark Wallet'
Dark Wallet is a light browser wallet relying on an independent Bitcoin
implementation with out-of-the-box security and privacy features.
Release early 2014.

Your keys. Your Privacy. Your Sovereignty.
Dark Wallet is a project of unSYSTEM and Defense Distributed that starts with simple premises: Bitcoin as a web technology and privacy by default.
We love Bitcoin and the way it empowers and reorients individual and community commerce. Dark Wallet as a project will serve as a platform or starting codebase for delivery of a high quality Bitcoin that serves The People over enterprise and government interests.
Dark Wallet premiere client will work as a light browser extension
featuring trustless mixing, multisig, and colored coin support. See more technical info here, a list of our past work, and how we will use the money.

Dark Wallet needs $50k to finish its development and testing.
We hope you will elect to support this open source infrastructure now over waiting for the premium, managed clients of tomorrow.
We are interested in scaling up the Bitcoin infrastructure in an
intentionally subversive and empowering direction- taking Bitcoin just
where it has been threatening to go. Towards an integrity of values, and
a neutrality promoted by anonymity and a resistance to censorship.
Software can stand for something.
The unSYSTEM team at the CIC's Calafou live frugally and share a common ideal of investing in common infrastructure. Dark Wallet's
funds will after 45 days be transmitted to a multisignature Bitcoin
address, publicly viewable on the blockchain, for the coming months of
project administration. Administration will be publicly accountable.
Should we surpass our goal, surplus funds will be deposited to the same
account and used to support unplanned and experimental features within
We are skilled and experienced software developers who live for the freedom of the Internet. Preserve Privacy and Freedom of Speech
Bitcoin is the next battle ground in the fight against supranational
political domination. Nation states harrass their governed populations
with parades of open lies, and dedicate their time to the modern statist
paradigm: developing emergency powers and containing the growth of new
technologies. Digital anonymity and freedom of financial speech are some
of the last tools left in the dwindling garrisons of Liberty.
We are by turns threatened and mocked by neoliberal social engineers and their Boomer bagmen. We face an "architecture of oppression."
Worse still, even liberatory technologies like Bitcoin are on the
path to self-censorship due to the business interests of a relative few
who excerise disproportionate influence within a dangerously
monocultural ecosystem. Help us introduce principled diversity with an
intelligent and independent implementation.Other Ways to Help
Some people just cannot contribute, or have
not yet decided to engage with Bitcoin as a useful implement for change.

*Author of Trends
Books, 1997) &
Trend Tracking (1991)
The Martial Artist of Trend Forecasting —The
purpose of trend forecasting is to provide insights
and directions in anticipation of what the future
may bring – and to be prepared for the unexpected.
Gerald Celente, a Close Combat practitioner and black belt trainer,
well understands the importance
of proacting rather than reacting: "The first
rule of Close Combat is to attack the attacker.
Action is faster than reaction. The same holds
true for the future. You know the future is coming
… attack it before it attacks you."
Founder of The Trends Research Institute in 1980,
Gerald Celente is a pioneer trend strategist. He is author of the national bestseller Trends 2000 and Trend Tracking (Warner
Books) – "Far
better than Megatrends," and publisher
of the internationally circulated Trends Journal newsletter.

is a political atheist. Unencumbered by political
dogma, rigid ideology or conventional wisdom,
Celente, whose motto is "think for yourself,"
observes and analyzes the current events forming
future trends for what they are – not for
the way he wants them to be.
Like a doctor giving a diagnosis after gathering
the facts, whether or not you like the prognosis
doesn’t alter the outcome, make him an optimist
or pessimist – it’s simply what is.
And while Celente holds a US passport, he considers
himself a citizen of the world.

The proof is in
his past — Gerald Celente has earned his reputation as "The
most trusted name in trends" by accurately
forecasting hundreds of social, business, consumer,
environmental, economic, political, entertainment,
and technology trends. Among them: Celente

1993 and predicted sustained growth in organic
products in 1988.
gold was at $275 per ounce in 2002, Celente
said the price had bottomed and in 2004 forecast
the beginning of the "Gold Bull Run."
Since that time, with pinpoint accuracy, he
said when, why - and how high - gold would
before Starbucks was a household name, Celente forecast
the popularity of gourmet coffee and decades before
Pepsi and Coke got into the water business he predicted
the "Big Boom in Bottled Water."
the geopolitical and economic fronts, Celente and
The Trends Research Institute are credited with
forecasting many major trends, including the "Panic
of '08," the collapse of the Soviet Union,
the last two recessions, the dot-com meltdown, the
1997 Asian currency crisis, the 1987 world stock
market crash, increased terrorism against America,
"Crusades 2000," and the quagmire in Iraq
… before war began.Gerald
Celente has also accurately forecast many real estate
trends, including the big move to vacation spots and
small towns, the growth in the second home market,
a real estate "fizz" in 2005 ... plus hundreds
of other social, business, fashion, consumer and entertainment

Harvest Festival in the Desert at
In early October my friend Bob
Anderson and I visited “Tonopah Rob’s” small 9 acre
farm. Rob’s farm is a few miles south of Interstate 10 on the way to Los
Angeles about 60 miles west of Phoenix, and within site of the Palo Verde
Nuclear Power Plant where my friend, Bob Anderson, works as a refueling
Bob also lives in Tonopah and has regularly
visited Rob’s farm with his family several times over the years.
Over the summer of 2013 at various events
and via interviews and networking, Tonopah Rob’s farm was regularly
mentioned and I became curious as to how much food could be grown in the desert
on a small farm.
Arizona is much more fertile than is commonly known and when water
is added to the abundant sunshine you get growth… lots of it. Arizona’s State
Seal depicts Mining, Farming and Ranching for good reason http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/flags/usa/azseal.jpg.
http://cals.arizona.edu/aes/mac/ag-ventures/AZ_AG_facts.htm Arizona has a $6.3 billion agricultural industry.Arizona has 7,500 farms and
ranches across the state.
Beef is Arizona's
leading agricultural product.Arizona produces enough beef annually to feed over 4.6 million Americans.
Arizona grows enough cotton each
year to make more than one pair of jeans for every man, woman and child in
Arizona is the winter
lettuce capitol of the world.
Arizona ranks second in the U.S. in head lettuce, leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce,
cauliflower and broccoli production.Nationally, Arizona ranks
second in the production of lemons,
third in tangerine production, and 4th in the production of oranges
Arizona apple growers produce 94.5 million pounds of apples each year.
There are 140,000 dairy cows in Arizona with a yearly milk production
average of 21,705 pounds per cow.
interested us about “Tonopah Rob”, Rob Lazzarotto, was that he
farmed “Naturally”. We like to call it ‘Virgin Farming’
(how can you screw with food and still call it ‘Virgin’?), the term
“Organic” now means whatever various levels of government says it
means. The redefining of ‘organic’ by the government and
corporate food production so angered Rob that he changed all of his promotion
material and made it clear that he farmed using a much higher standard. He
almost doubled the size of his small farm with the investments made by his
customers in future production and now he supplies food for thousands of
the intent was to farm using purely organic methods. Unfortunately, though, as
large corporations and the federal government became involved with organic
certification, small farmers such as me were being priced out of getting
the “certified organic” label. A small farm must now pay between
$400 and $1,400 per crop for certification, annual fees, plus the cost of
the inspection which includes travel expenses for the inspector.
Growing everything myself, the produce sold
at my farm stand is chemical-free and better than organic. I use NO pesticides
of any kind, NO insecticides, ZERO antibiotics, NO chemical fertilizers, and
absolutely NO genetically modified organisms. Certain sprays and soaps are
allowed in organic farming, but at Tonopah Rob’s Vegetable Farm I
practice an all-natural method using beneficial bug warfare, green compost,
natural fertilizers, and companion planting as my strategy and line of defense.
I employ thousands, possibly millions of
beneficial insects on my farm. Over two-million lady bugs have been released
here, as well as thousands of praying mantis, over twenty-thousand green lace
wings, and countless wasps. Bees, spiders of all kinds, and even scorpions make
up part of the troops. Other reinforcements such as lizards and whiptails,
frogs, toads, snakes and iguanas patrol day and night, gobbling up bad bug
intruders. Hawks and roadrunners help keep sparrows, quail and larger insects
away from my lush mustard and turnip greens.”
called Rob and scheduled an interview for the radio show. Bob Anderson was in
studio as well and we asked if Rob would provide us a tour http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Media/142403-2013-09-26-09-27-13-pepe-escober-rob-lazzarotto-aka-tonopah-rob.htm.
Rob agreed but made it clear that this was a very busy time for him so we’d
need to come early and be on time (farmer’s hours).
and I spent at least 3 hours with Rob, and Rob agreed that he would host a
gathering of FreedomsPhoenix readers and Radio Show listeners from 10am-2pm
October 26th 2013 and try to get in two tours of his entire farm.
The following weekend (Saturday November 2nd) was the grand opening
of his retailing from the farm for the 2013/2014 season that would go well into
June (he vacations in late July… TOO HOT!)
is a very busy time for Rob but we promised to be prompt and that the attendees
would be attentive, eager and would follow his instructions.
was a very pleasant event, and the children were very well behaved and engaged.
Donna scolded me for being so serious and focused on keeping the group tight and
making sure everyone could hear etc. “I thought all of this effort was
about the children Ernie”… Ouch!
All of the kids were great, and their parents were very mindful of them being
well behaved. But they were just having fun and enjoying a beautiful day on the
farm and didn’t need any direction other than warnings to not face off
with an adult male turkey, don’t anger the bees, and to hold their
questions until Rob was finished talking at each of the stations. The children
were very excited and that added to the fun.
was obviously enjoying himself, too. But we had another group of people that
desired a tour and I took a few, and when Rob finished he took another group
after the first group left. My only regret was that I didn’t get to talk
to any of the new faces and didn’t get to make new friends or to let them
know how welcome they were and how appreciative I was that they came and brought
their children. We listeners and readers traveled from as far as Las
Vegas and Los Angeles
to visit the farm with us.
also printed up nice brochures from FarmMatch.com for all that attended and
left a stack for Rob to distribute at his retail stand when he opens.
following photos are from both visits that I made. That’s why Rob has a
Blue and a Red shirt in the photos.
The entrance to the farm hides a lot of what goes on behind the farm house and
this is what most visitors see:
Rob lives in this comfortable home on the farm. There are 3-5 full time
employees but Rob says he needs 3 times that many at least during the growing
season. He is always looking for good employees but he drug tests and will not
allow smokers to touch the plants (Tobacco Mosaic Virus destroys many types of vegetables…
he showed us where this infection started from someone that wasn’t honest
about their smoking and it is devastating to a class of plants called ‘Nightshades’
– Potatoes, Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplants… it’s a long list):
Near the house is where the turkeys hang out. Our turkeys are about 2/3rds this
size and are 3 months old. These are full grown females:
And here are the males:
Rob treats most of the turkeys as pets and has names for them. Our turkeys are
destined for Thanksgiving Dinner but I do like their temperament and they are
very friendly to everyone:
The farm has over 300 chickens and Rob does a good business selling organic
eggs. He spend a great deal on the natural feed that he has shipped from Montana. Rob focuses
growing food for humans and not the chickens. Grains are better bought from Montana in his opinion:
The initial soil preparation is done with a small tractor but the tending and
harvesting is all done by hand:
Tonopah Rob’s ‘backyard’:
This Pomegranate tree is shielded with bird netting. We have a Pomegranate tree…
it Must be shielded or you are just feeding the birds :):
This simple green house is where some of the plants get their start:
When Rob expanded his farm last year it was mandatory that he buy a small
tractor to prepare the fields for planting and to plant the seeds. The rest is
done by hand:
Donna and Gary and Verda worked a plot here on our little 2 acres that was
about 20% this size and it was almost a full time job for months… I
wouldn’t even try being a farmer without a tractor. I happen to price the
very tractor that Rob Has and with all of the attachments it’s about
$17,000 to $25,000 (which model and how many attachments):
The tractor pulls another attachment that plants the seeds and covers them.
These are the lines on top of the mounds. Since Rob doesn’t use the
tractor after this step he can then plant ‘companion’ plants in the
trough. After years of experimentation, Rob has determined wich combination of
planets benefit each other through nutrition and the types of insects they attract.
Rob calls it “Bug Wars” and it is how he is able to grow very green
and lush plants without chemicals. Even though flowers aren’t sold, as
far as I know, they are grown to attract certain beneficial insects and then
adorn customer’s baskets (next 3 pictures):
The sections measure about 18 feet wide so that 20 foot sections of Bird
Netting can stretched across to prevent the young leaves from being eaten by
the many birds that would love the opportunity. Rob has just started using 1-2”
wide Mylar Bird Tape, http://www.gemplers.com/product/R40703/Bird-Scare-Flash-Tape-Red-Silver-1-x-290?gclid=CIjR1riOxboCFS9eQgodTSIAIQ&sku=R40703&CID=25SEPLA&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=R40703&ef_id=UMoTxwAAABDk8y@Q20131102030143s
that is reflective on one side and colored on the other, that he attaches to
rebar about 3-5 feet above the ground and spaced about 10-12 feet apart. He is
very pleased with the early results and this could save him many thousands of
dollars a year (Bird Netting is one of his biggest costs on the farm).
Rob has discovered that the quail have learned to land on the netting at this
stage of growth and wait for their friends to arrive until enough of them weigh
down the netting so that they are able to reach the plants,… and the
feast begins (next 2 pictures):
After the plants get large enough and have developed their own chemical defenses,
birds are no longer a threat and the netting is rolled up (next 2 pictures):
Plants that require a lot of water like lettuce, create way too many weeds to
deal with naturally. Some crops allow for the burning of the early weeds with a
propane torch that doesn’t harm the crops that come up later. But for
other plants Rob uses biodegradable Bark Paper that comes in 300’ rolls.
He may spend hundreds of dollars covering a field but the savings in water and
labor is worth it without having to use chemicals (next 3 pictures):
Some plants can be watered using a sprinkler system, and some need to be
irrigated. This is an irrigated field. Rob has several of these small plots
that he uses for experimentation and they each have names (I don’t
remember the names of these two) (next 3 pictures):
Here is a good example of Rob bordering one crop with another to repel one
insect with another, or often the very scent of particular plants are a repellant.
I see lots of Basil on the edges. And depending on the general direction of the
wind, Rob will plant Sunflowers on the correct side of the field (I can’t
remember if it is up or down wind) so that “assassin” bugs are
attracted so that the bugs attracted to certain crops are met with lethal
force. The bug pictured here is dead, a victim in the Bug War (next 3 pictures):
Bees Bees Bees. Rob has several bee hives around the property. One is
Africanized, One Italian, and another honey bee I can’t remember. The
African bees attack when you take their honey and can be a pain in the ass and
very dangerous for several days after being robbed. But after a couple of years,
they mate with the other breeds and calm down. But several Turkeys and
Chickens were killed and humans stung before the aggressive bees began to chill
out. The new wooden hive is suppose to attract a specific type of bee…
and it looks nice in the meantime.
they are very productive. Rob told us that one colony produces over 300 pounds
of honey a year!... Wow! we’re getting some bees after we visit beekeeper
Dee Lusby in a couple of weeks in southern Arizona (next 4 pictures):
‘Raised Composting” is new to Rob and I don’t know what made
him think to try this, but he discovered that palm fronds don’t decompose
very well and the compost doesn’t fall through the chicken wire as he had
first hoped due to the palm fronds. But he did discover that when he waters the
composting material, it creates a “tea” that feeds the lemon tree.
This lemon tree is 3 times bigger than it’s 2-3 year old siblings not
fertilized by this method.
Rob was so impressed that he has started experimenting with this sort of ‘tea
composting’ in other test fields (next 3 pictures):
I think I remember Rob telling us that there are only 4 grapevines here, and that
one fence line here produced over 300 pounds of grapes. He sold many bunches
and made jam out of the rest:
Rob has 3 wells on his property that supplies all of the water that he can pump
and use (zoned agricultural… unlimited water), and he spends only $500 in
electricity a month to power all of his wells, his home, and the farm. The well
pictured here is down the street a ways on an industrial farm. This well is
pumping out water every time I drive by it when I visit Bob less than a mile
from here. The ‘ocean of water’ in this area is also on a volcanic
plume and depending on where you are, the water ranges from about 85 to 105+
degrees Fahrenheit. Less than a mile from here is a Hot Springs where you can go and soak in
several hot tubs made of stone and concrete with beautiful sunset views. The
water is also channeled to grow privacy bamboo, and the entire complex is
outdoors but creative planning allows for great views and clothing-optional privacy:
On the other side of the road from the industrial farm I could see bee keepers
transporting bee colonies for pollination of the crops. The Collapse of Bee
Colonies is a very big concern for many industrial bee keepers and we hope to
understand a lot more when we visit 6th generation bee keeper Dee Lusby
later this month. But from interviewing her and talking to other farmers and
keepers, it seems I might understand a possible solution… don’t be
mean to bees :)
are transported a very long ways, all of their honey is taken, and they are feed
High Fructose Corn Syrup and other chemicals and people wonder why it is that
they leave. They don’t die… they just leave…. Ahhhh Duh. “I
have wings… and you’re a dick. I’m outta here”:
Here is the entrance to Rob's Farm, and to the left is his Farmer's Market Stand where people come from all over to buy his produce:
Here is what happens when you have tobacco on your hands (from smoking cigarettes). The Tobacco Mosaic virus can do much damage to heirloom plants that are not modified to be immune to it:
Here is some of the vegetables and flowers picked from the farm - ENJOY!:
