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.

‎" Lay down your arms and I will let you live. Lay down your life and I will lead you through eternity, to the face of the Father."

Jesus: as quoted in Waking Up Jesus (in the last days, as he leads his armies against the demonic, to set up a thousand years of peace by any means necessary).

 People bitch and bitch and bitch... and then they just go along.

 Your children's children will be freed, or enslaved, by what we do now... I would rather die fighting than be remembered as another faceless bitch.


 I wish I was just crazy enough to not see how crazy my life sounds to civilians.

Obama Jail our enemies, the enemies of the earth itself, the war monger neo-cons. We will back bold action on 9-11; the military is with you. Use them before they are turned against you, and all you believe in is lost. After taking everything we have/ concentrated all wealth in their hands, they will kill us with their pollution. I will stop them with my methods if you choose not to act.

  • Adam Beat likes this.

    • John Scott Ridgway This is in response to the Republicans getting ready to try to fuck with the Democrats through a bunch of law suits. We have enough on them to put them in jail. Believe me, Bush and Rove and those guys are terrified I will get in Court and testify against them, and I would in a second. I am going to make them and theirs pay... though always, there is the chance of redemption. I can forgive a lot if it works for my political purposes, which are more important than my urge for extreme justice.

We must all awaken to the notion that an enemy of my enemy is my friend. We must band together to take our land, rights, and freedom back from the predatory Capitalists who have used banks and stocks to steal the wealth of the 95% to enrich the 5%. We have been duped. Fine. Time to set things right... and get a little payback.

 People would know what was good for them if given an honest choice. Right now, they are lied to, and then the real decisions are made behind closed doors, in committee's, where private deals are smoozed and oozed from their slimy corpuscles. I believe in the people of america, no matter how these politicians act.

Facts: first the Intelligence Agencies attacked me, then they tried to hire me... when I avoided all their traps and basically gathered my buds and fought back, they suddenly wanted to be on my side. You can fight them. I can help. IF you are tuff, take them on. If you are weak, better just vote and shut up.

 I started out a psycology and journalism major, thinking the two went together, and I could go out and expose evil and the world would just fix it... how naive I was.

My work with Intelligence left me a rebel with a gun; convinced me to start raising an army to stop a Global Corporate Coup, aided and abetted by the most powerful forces on earth. I was surprised to find how many felt the same way, from generals to grunts to far left radicals... all of us agreeing at least on one thing -- force can only be defeated by greater force.

I was forced to live the life of an outlaw from the age of fourteen, because of the unfair laws of my country. I live by  Rules hammered out between me and God. If man's laws make sense, or do not jeopardize my life, I try to follow them.   Still, over the years I got out of charges or was never caught for things ranging from armed robbery (not a real one, a mistake, and a long, boring, stupid story) to drunk driving to other shit just as heinous. You know, nothing rally horrible... Believe me...  I was a good kid in my neighborhood.

Radicals need to seize on JUSTICE FOR THE DEAD IN 9-11. Make this an issue to run a candidate on; if the truth broke through the DAM OF MISINFORMATION, flowed across this country, waking up even the most heavy sleepers, and washing away the scum that has floated to the top (they think they are cream)... we could level the playing field. No more Billionaires... Period.

The sense that everyone has worth has been lost somewhere along the line... now our hatred splits us apart into mere objects of derision. We are much less as a result. 


The 9-11 movement is not right wing. The 9-11 movement is not a disinformation ploy by Alex Jones. The 911 movement is based on hundreds of scientists, and the conclusions of millions of people who look into the facts. The 9-11 Truth Movement is our pesticide to clean out the fucking hornet nest in Washington... and replace them with representatives of the people, not just the stooges of corporations and banks and stockbrokers... A chance to fight this out in court, instead of the streets.


 This battle is being fought mind to mind.Concentrate on inspiring actual force, not more words. Awaken those around you quietly, gather in cells dedicated to non violent action. You will be more courageous and balanced in a pack. Make sure anyone there can be the leader, so all of you can eventually go off on your own and start new cells. 

 Our enemy has made you think what THEY want. They give you two choices of political parties and tell you that is the be-all and end-all. They tell you that God wants you to Obey Your Rulers, even though that was about the last thing on the mind of Jesus, Buddha, or Allah. They tell you to worship wealth and fame... though those carrots are more scarce than lotto winners.


the secret secret agent is cautious as all hell
keeps all the shades drawn
I come in out of the cold
they are going to be afraid
I will say too much too soon 

I have ordered a target brought down
for less 

 Yea... big fucking surprise. The government is trolling phone calls and emails to see if you are brainwashed enough or not.... IF THEY ARE NOT WATCHING YOU, YOU ARE NOT FIGHTING HARD ENOUGH. Ignore them...


This is not time to give the neocons one fucking inch.

"We're going to die here." I am surprised that I sound amused.

"Yeah, maybe." Mango doesn't let on whether he cares or not.

"Fuck, maybe." I hold the pistol at my side like a gun slinger...

I can hear them getting in the car behind us, starting up the truck and leaving. . . I give my soldiers and my loved ones a running start.... I'm surprised by how calm I feel. I hear them inside yelling, cursing, figuring out what we've done... 

Mango's shotgun explodes off to my right.

I can feel the projectory of the bullet from my gun into the man who steps into the doorway... the barrel of his uzi spews flames that leap into my mind as blackness devours the world.

    • John Scott Ridgway When I first wrote this... it was taken to mean I was putting together suicide squads. Here in Chicago, someone actually put together an organization called Mango and The Slaughter, which they said was some kind of new football league. I do not know what happened to that... guess that became Top Secret, too. MANGO AND THE SLAUGHTER. THANK YOU FOR YOUR AIDE... WE MAY NEED YA AGAIN. GET READY.

    • John Scott Ridgway NOT TO KILL OR DIE... that was never my intent... well, at the time, 2007, I was drugged, desperate, and under attack.... as you full well know. Now that I am Back, and ready to take them on, we do this MY WAY... WITH NO VIOLENCE.

e Hunter Awakens Bleeding

by John Scott Ridgway on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 6:44pm
the warm blood on his chest reminds him
he is NOW the hunter and the hunted

he warily checks on his weapons and his family and friends

somebody is gonna die tonight

best he can hope for he doesn't know their name
doesn't care so much if it is him
he won't notice that

he just doesn't want to know

another name 

fo rthe dead

merlin cut himself into specks
& fed himself to u
He is now Inside You
seize his magic

a blood soaked Arthur is rising
there will be many ways to die
one to live

POLITICIANS HAVE BEEN PAWNS TO THE KINGS OF INDUSTRY TOO LONG... to be anything more than PAWNS. They are invested in keeping the system of our enemies intact, so they can continue to gorge on the table--scraps of the elite.


Broadcast journalists dizzy us with trivia, to make sure we never think about the real problems. 

A Black Psy-Op's War is being fought over your mind, to see who will control the web of lies woven in your skull. Most people are not even aware of the assault and are easily conquered and enslaved by the nightly news.

 I heard a reporter say this on CNN: "How could highly trained soldiers just go out and kill?" Broadcast journalists and their writers. They leave out what they should report, dizzy us with trivia to make sure we never think about the real problems; never look deep enough to see who controls what they see, and what they choose to NEVER let you know about.

The Obscenely Rich will stop whining about Taxes when Jesus shows up and says he is going to fry their souls... then they will whine like they have never whined before, about how wonderful they are to their servants sometimes, and usually to the dogs. He will see right through that shit... ask them why they refused to feed the poor, and instead jetting around the world doing coke, and bitching about their taxes? Then He will just turn away and leave them.

This Traitor once said that soldiers are 'mere animals to be used in foreign policy.' He did not give a shit that he was bombing a civilian population in Cambodia back into the stone age.... sent a friend of mine into villages to rape women to death, in a display meant to stop the Villagers from helping the Vietcong (an impossible task, they were winning and owned the night). Kissinger deserves a fire squad, not to be lauded.

Each member in a cell of the group, which numbers from 6 to 20 fighters, is trained in a range of specialties. The organization is designed so that the loss of any individual, including a leader, has as little effect as possible. NYT

Prosperity Ministers Must Die...and when they do, Satan will dance with their soul (dirty dancing I imagine) and the Christ himself, from far away on high, will smile a sad smile, thinking silently to himself that he failed again, but it sure was nice to see another asshole burn.

 Burning a Koran is yelling fire in a theater. Shouldn't be, in the perfect world it wouldn't be, it is. When we have soldiers in the Middle East, people who do this ENDANGER OUR YOUNG. Stomp anyones ass who tries this shit on your watch. I would also like to stomp journalists who make this news. They should ignore them, like they would the ravings of any other nuts;  making this news is shameful and inflammatory.

 I would like to remind all Kings that everyone around you wants your position, and will destroy everything you ever loved to get it. I come from a line of ancient kings, traced to 403 and myth'd back to ancient Israel as the Lost Tribe, and I despise monarchy, as my family has for the last 200 plus years... we have lived to ripe old ages since then, where--as, before, they usually died young, in War. 

I swear on the sacred books of my fathers
I will not remain bloodless in the face of defeat...

The world is going to run out of oil. When this day comes, whoever has stockpiles will basically be king of the world. Every drop will be priceless. My enemy knows this and LUSTS for such a contingency. The possibility of limitless wealth and power is what they dream of at night. I must destroy these evil shits before they can take the helm.

 Your government is being taken over by banks and corporations. They are running candidates who will take social security from you... leave the children with no schools... destroy freedom of religion and expression. Are you going to be Karl Rove's bitch, or fight?

If you are my enemy, prepare to tremble... if you are my friend, prepare for greatness.

 ‎9-11. . . We can judge the sincerity of our present batch of politicians by how they carefully avoid this topic; the people know this was a false flag, independent studies have shown as much again and again; no one is going to be fooled that much longer at all, no matter how much they lie. We are going to have to replace all of them, and they will be lucky if they avoid jail.

In the end, all you are going to have left is the hope for a convenient solution to incontinence.


Go ahead... get paranoid enough to realize that if you have given them a reason to bug you -- in their world, this means bitch about the way they fuck up the world and make it basically uninhabitable -- THEY WILL BUG YOU.

You have criticism of me, tell it to my face... otherwise, I see you TV fucks stab me in the back again, I will consider that an open act of War. 

I don't remember, and if I did, I would need a new dealer, pronto.   (these comedy lines will be removed before I do anything more with this prose, but I am backing up everything in here)... mood breakers, to say the least.  Like this.

There is not one person in this country who does not have BITCH branded on their brain. The tv presses that hot red metal into your gray matter before you can even formulate a thought to fight them.

I do not like to be called a chicken. I can also remember when I was young, fighting after being called a 'silly monkey.' I will fight over nothing else, mind you... hey, you can kick my ass and I will just cringe. But call me chicken, or a silly monkey, and you have a fight, sir.

you awaken into the unfairness
the basic
cruel ass way this rigged system operates
the blatant disregard
for how money is made
as long as you get it

the it's just busines
uttered before your assassin fires into your head.

I am not cynical
about the  lake shore
I am not cynical
about sunsets
I am not cynical
about dogs and cats
I am not cynical
about love

I do not see any way to allow the world to continue like it is
spiraling into suicide
breeding into overpopulation
losing our minds to doomsday cults
as we watch all we were born into die away

‎"It's just business," they tell you, as they fire their .45 into your forehead. The corporations and banking industry psychopaths in a nutshell. Merely... merely socializing banking has been scientifically proven to enhance communities, business, househoulders -- because predatory sales practices are not used by the state employees.
