A blood soaked Arthur IS RISING

Gonzo journalism and fiction is a tricky mix.... Welcome to my razor's edge.


I am an elf in the attic making mind toys with sharp edges; an educated writer who gets good reviews, who you can read for free in the rough form of first drafts on the web, or purchase in a book form.
The best soldier does not attack. The superior fighter succeeds without violence. The greatest conqueror wins without struggle. The most successful manager leads without dictating. This is intelligent non aggressiveness. This is called the mastery of men.


Welcome to you, I am John Scott Ridgway, Novelist, Poet, Blogger, Radio and TV writer and actor... five books, also paint in oils and acrylics. I am poet warrior of sorts, a non violent radical, personally, though understanding of those who choose other paths IN THE EIGHTY PLUS COUNTRIES AT LAST COUNT THAT came in this blog ...

The predicted revolutions in the USA and around the would are going to

be violent in the next twenty years, is what the CIA says. I want them to stay peaceful, which is the only way to win this struggle between haves and have nots. They have more guns, we have more people,, and they include the mothers and sisters and brothers of the people they will ask to fight us.... I think they underestimate the police.

NEVER ACCEPT APPEASEMENT OVER JUSTICE. By any means necessary is the reality. . . the USA can be spared stupid wars, but other countries. . . need different solutions. . .

The number of Countries that have come in to have a look at this blog humbles me. Thank you very much.



PROFESSIONALS, HOPEFULLY, like the police, military, etc...

understanding that violence is sometimes needed

does not mean I like anything about the sound

of fists hitting faces

Boxing is too much for me

make me feel like I am watching

dog fights with toothless pitbulls

"I am an artist first, and a politician second," as John Lennon said.

My intentions are to stop the violence from entering into

revolutionary wars

the CIA


will break out in the next twenty years all over the

world, including here...

But Ill tell ya,

if there is not some redistribution of

wealth here there and everywhere




My intentions is to keep these protests peaceful

so we can win

without bloodshed

Total War for Total Peace

Never incites violence

or destroys property

you should be able

to go to protests with strollers and babies

parents feeling as safe as the police

Now, poetry...

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...


A blood soaked Arthur has risen

be aware

be very aware

total war
for total peace
is being fought

THERE will be many ways to die
and only one to live
give and give and give
until the worlds downtrodden and oppressed
can begin to forgive
before things get bloody and ruthless
My Peace sign shot full of holes
and my reason ignored
drowned out by the roar of machine guns

You cannot break the golden rule
all the time and not expect
consequences from nature

we will fight for our right to thrive as well
we do not accept your sentence
to poverty so you can earn more
by shipping the factory off to China

nothing this mindgame in america can do to us
can destroy this thing inside that yearns for freedom
enough to die in the name of JUSTICE
generation after generation
from time

No more hyper-reality FOR US. We have already spent too long in an oasis of belief where nothing is wrong, folks... Now, we must face this was all a mirage... and try like hell to get out of this desert... or resolve ourself to the fact that we will leave our children to starve in the barren sands.

There are better ways to defeat an enemy than an outright fight, especially if you are vastly outnumbered, like the Elite. MSM PSY-WAR allows them to control our actions through our thoughts, and basically stop our FORCE from activating. I am not saying we should fight just because we can win, I am just saying we should fight before we lose, if no other option is left us.... because a world is at stake.

  • You are a spark in dry timber, stopped from becoming a roaring flame
    They SET UP LAWS THAT ALLOW THEM TO STEAL. MURDER. BRAINWASH THEIR CRITICS. We must begin to feel challenged now to stop them. Or WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. PERIOD. THE SKY, OTHER SPECIES, OUR WATER... OUR MINDS. No more hyper-reality for us... too long in that oasis where nothing is wrong folks... we must face this is all a mirage.
    • OUR LACK OF RESOLVE TO CHANGE OUR WORLD MUST PUZZLE THE GODS THEMSELVES.... how can we be this collectively dum? And if we are....then the brains will be looked to as potential saviors.... when all too often they are just psocyo-paths and stooges and scared folks under the gun who are ALLOWED to CON EVERYONE... FOR THE GOOD OF A

A cruel slap woke me to the PAIN
at the moment of birth;
My first cry was NO
buried in unintelligible screams.
I am a man now.
Now I catch your hand and break all the fingers.

the promise

You must be whoever the enemy fears the least
or fears the most.

No other position is saf

da general

Welcome to the spark that inflames TOTAL WAR FOR TOTAL PEACE.

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...

THE ELVES ATTIC is stories, poetry, essay's, peculiar events in my life . . . oil painting, articles.

Your patience for bearing with me on my first drafts is a much appreciated kindness. Your worldwide interest is my muse . . .Lately I have been writing a book called Gangsta General x, about a revolutionary in the USA, who is fighting to keep the revolt peaceful as things spin out of control in the states after a famine gets the populace hungry enough to change their society once and for all....

HOW TO USE THIS BLOG: There is a black and white jukebox in the right column that you can shut off, or find songs on.... To listen to the COMEDY SKITS FROM THE SHOW PEACE AND PIPEDREAMS... turn off the black jukebox, and turn on the Green one. I play Moon Bong Haze and Jesus...

I have five majors, five books, two tv shows, a radio show, 76 countries at last count on this site alone, and over a million online readers to my credit. I can't thank any of you enough for all of your help and encouragement over the years; the favors and aide that has been offered me, the trust in my leadership... you are all SACRED TO ME ... even you folks I tend to hate.


Thank you.


Shit I removed from the opening.

elcome is the headquarters of Total War For Total Peace. A loose group of radicals, intelligent agents, soldiers, ex-soldiers, vet.'s and others who believe that we must shit the popular opinions of this world into a more sane way of thinking than has presciently involved. We are a force... we have a little power... join us... in our campaing for information in formation.. John Stewart, David Spade, Spike Lee, Steven Colbert and many others work within our ranks. We merely focus the protesters and others in the direction.... I am the end of a line of kings, raised by a radical union mother to fight, marched with Cesar Chavez at five and was courted by Obama, Clinton, and Bush after they read my comedy stories and realized more soldiers were following what I had to say than the generals. I have five majors... including Military Intelligence, taught by a radical communist/considered the Jewish Black Panter (back when they were cool -- now they have been infected with hatred, and I suspect this has been caused by infilitration, and the people I admire from the movement want nothing to do with them). This is a class war folks, between the 5% that have all the wealth and the rest of us, who want to spend it fixing the planet, and giving everyone a chance to make it in this world.... we should be giving 250 throusand to each couple as they start out, which could be done, science shows, if we stopped war.... think of how much greater we would all be if our children were assured of College. I will soon be starting a raeio show, Peace Pipedreams and Pain, which was the original title that Jimmy Peace and Johnny Pipedreams came up with.... then my Johnny Pain name was dropped. I was not on the first shows, then became the star after pipedreams quit (he was a drunken ego and I would not work with him, and neither would M., my gal, a comedic and voice talent herselv... anyways, big love to the Peace and Pipedreams fans out there... and expect not only some of the Haze family to show up on my show, hollywood is interested in a movie script about them which Jimmy Peace and I are writing.. by the way, his band PLH Orchestra, had the number one album on the indie charts recently and you should check him out on facebook. Big Love to most of you, and hatred to the others -- you know who you are; when I have humbled you properly, expect only my forgiveness, not some gullitone -- well, some will have to die, but try that humble thing and it will really help your chanes... I promise. Some call me Gangsta Genneral X, others Johnny Pain, some a Filthy Slut. And a hereitc ad Satan. I have written six books, two tv shows, a very successful radio show, and have had over a million readers on my blog and yes, I am humbled by the attention. Thank you for givbing this writer an audience. There is no greater gift... other than world Justice, which will lead to Peace.


The 'I' 
will emerge
as one creature
battling through a universe
of Savage Grace

I sense inside us a mighty roar
that will make them shit themselves and run!!!!

This blog has comedy, essay's, poetry, enforced by a balanced view of the world of Intelligence based on university classes, rather than internet rumors, and the wealth of miss-information that goes un-noticed on the net.

WE ARE . . . a loose affiliation of soldiers, intelligence officers, comedians, movie and music stars, average folk, radicals and... well, more people than you are going to believe. Join Us.

We are fighting around the globe. ww3 they would call it if american s' could actually pronounce all the countries our special forces are charging into...

strange trues litter the landscape of lies
bits of something half-hidden
under scraps of old newspapers and discarded boxes



you left us starving too long
We learned
to play our hunger like a symphony....
hear the thunder of our drums!!!!!!




I majored in Military Intelligence (sociology), Cults (anthropology), philosophy (language mostly; Wittgenstein scholar for a prof.), writing poetry, fiction, and film... and English Lit. Attended University of Toledo, Depaul Univeristy, Columbia College (which is great for post grad, which is the same as what they teach udergrad.'s, but their academics really suck and they charge too much, just get the book that they base all the fiction classes on and you essentially, can do it yourself, and believe me, it is worth it... I think now in beginnings, middles, and ends; stories come to me naturally in a form that the human mind has developed naturally, and you tap into the unconscious through these methods... and damn I wish I could remember the name of that book... Fiction is in the title, and it started what was once a very underground college, mostly teaching fiction, then radical film based not on being an artist, but being a working joe in the industry that destroys dreams, not makes them... they laughed at artist types there). Regardless, I have been publishing for over 25 years, a NYT/LA Times writer says i "should be a household name.' Obama, Bono, Bush, and an amazing amount of others have read me and I cannot thank you all enough -- John Stewart, South Park, Seth McFarlan, Dan Milano, David Spade and others.... Snoop Dogg and especially, Andy Dick.... I will be in LA soon, and Pauly Shore, I am taking you up on that invite to perform at the Imrpov. Now,you others, like Bones, SVU and others... Why did you have to portray my movement like that? You honor me by the attention, I guess. TV folks tend to hate me. On an awards show where TOmmy Smothers said, "Anyone who thinks they can war their way to Peace is ignorant." this other guy turned to the camera and said, "Trust TV, not the internet." TV are afraid of me. I tell the truth.... they lie. I went after TOmmy Smothers for coming after me, wihtout understanding what I was talking about at all... he sold out long ago, a fox hunter, and that he was praised as a radical is a joke and I told him so.... He retired from comedy when I told my people to go after him. Mancow lost his radio show in Chicago when I told them they were mistaking my mercy for my forgiveness... So, who am I? The wordsmith who prefers not everyone know my face or have to live like a star. I refused to go on The Daily Show and others... I prefer to do my work in the shadows, with the spies, who are my greatest allies in this war to save the human race. My line of Kings was known for dying with their troops. Ad I would be in England now on the throne had not my family grew sick of Monarchies, or was pushed out by the hapsburgs (Germans) who now claim my throne (I would just give the money and everything away if I had it ... my opinions really offended the english for awhile... fuck that. I wil offend whoever the hell I want...

aways remember

TO ALL who enter, I bid you good will... and don't have a goddamn hissy fit over every obnoxious thing I say... just leave and never come back... unless you actually have a brain that learns, than I can work with you.... I mean, uh, entertain you... I assure you, my extensive knowledge of brain washing and media manipulation, as well as Wittgensteinian consciousness creation, will soon enough have You sending me all your money and virgins (must be 18 or in possession of very convincing 'I.D.'), and hamsters and used kitchen appliances; this is how our church tithes ... don't mess with our religion. I do not agree with the virgin policy by the way, and will abolish it as soon as I have enough arabs in my church, since I prefer over 40 divorcees to the virgins; you know women who have lived enough life to know their away around a trampoline filled with dildos and actually demand a little anal. And by the way, the Rumors that I am doing mind control research for the CIA are way overblown, alright? DO NOT LISTEN. ONLY AN IDIOT BELIEVES THIS. REPEAT. DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS. DO-WOP-A-DOO.

You can turn the music off the jukebox, (or change the songs) to listen to the comedy... I like the first one, but did not choose them, or edit them.

Oh, yea, the court has ordered me to write something about this so... and they are right, in a way -- please, don't let me inspire you to go into a college classroom and do a bunch of senseless killing. I am bored with doing this now, anyways, and find it useless. . . a few quickly forgotten moments of senseless violence -- and that is the bad kind, if you are keeping score on your head of your bed or gun but... Now, You crazies only get one death, so how about doing something that your family will actually be proud of for a change. You know, kill some child molesting priests, a 'prosperity minister' and his family (their kids just take over when they die, so you have to be through), or any number of issues... and not those crazy ones like the Jews run the world, or anything racial... just do ANYTHING THAT A NAZI WOULD NOT DO and you have the right idea. You know how this works -- Talk to the Dogs, they know... And think how much money your death row art will be worth/ oh, and let me say, as i will be happy to report in court, once again, that I am only kidding...though it does make a certain sense, and I would send you ten bucks a month to get chips at the commissery that you can trade with gang bangers for smokes and joints and leaving your asshole alone... should you want them to leave you alone. And remember that time you went to prison and was finally old and buff enough to be a bull instead of a bitch? You would surely be a bull this time... I am just saying, that prison sex can be pretty hot and it goes on all day long... you remember don't you.... you're getting hard right now, aren't you? Hey, it's okay... what happens in prison stays in prison... But, really, I am just kidding. No one in this world deserves to die. Really.

Really.... really, just kidding. If you feel like killing somebody, call 911 and ask for help. Or... you know, talk to the Dogs, and they'll tell ya -- though shall not kill other than pigeons and squirrels (this changes from Dog to dog, of course, but I take my orders from a Husky)... then, being Dogs, they will probably go on and on about how cutting out/off their genitals is not their preferred manner of being.. That's what I hear anyways....

Seriously -- try to be civil. I make fun of violence and use it in my work comedic ally because this is my way of dealing with staying on top of these issues. I mean no disrespect. Don't take yourself that seriously -- I don't...
