  • I am an Investigative, Historical Researcher….a Philosopher; I am Tsaphah. I am a political activist, dedicated to unveiling, disseminating, and preserving the Truth…at all cost and risk to my life. I stand for Freedom; and not just American Freedom, but the very essence of the Freedom our founding fathers described, envisioned, fought for, and established a nation upon. I seek through the past, to better understand my present…and how it will affect our future. I seek the lost knowledge…and to protect what knowledge we now have.
    James Allen Isaacs Jr.
  • No sane person with a life really wants to be a political activist. When activism is exciting, it tends to involve the risk of bodily harm or incarceration, and when it's safe, it is often tedious, dry, and boring. Activism tends to put one into contact with extremely unpleasant people, whether they are media interviewers, riot cops, or at times, your fellow activists.
