I know and respect Fred Seaman, John Lennon’s assistant through the last two years of Lennon’s life; and I recommend his fascinating book, John Lennon: Living on Borrowed Time (or The Last Days of John Lennon, as some editions have it).
Fred has long been targeted by Yoko Ono, who has used her mammoth fortune, and the law, to gag him tightly, and forever. Her latest strike has left him disallowed to speak John’s name in public.
Please consider helping him with your donations, as my friend Jane Austin has requested:
Could anyone chip in for Fred Seaman’s gofundme page?
This new settlement is so intrusive!

Read literally, the agreement appears to prevent Seaman from speaking to anyone—on any subject—without telling them about the injunction, and then notifying Ono. He’s also seemingly prohibited from doing so much as playing a Beatles album in his own home.
Fred wrote a now-banned book “Last Days of John Lennon,” published in 1991, to provide insight into what was going on with John in the months/days before his untimely death. Yoko Ono has waged war against him since 1983 to discredit him, punish him and, now, silence him completely, for the rest of his life so that he can never say the words “John Lennon” in public to anyone ever again.
Fred has had to pay thousands of dollars for a legal retainer and then nearly triple that in legal expenses for the $400/hour lawyer who is representing him.
Yoko, who had already sued Fred twicce, sued him again, in Sept 2020, for giving a public 23-minute interview, for which he wasn’t paid. He had given over 100 interviews since 1981, but this one got him sued:
This gag order is just plain legal bullying, as—again—Fred had already given numerous interviews before the gag order went into effect around 2002 and so his public interviews, both filmed and recorded, had already gone public in various documentaries and books. For example, this website includes a video of an interview with Fred from the early 1980’s:
At no time did Fred ever sign, nor was required to sign, an NDA or confidentiality agreement. Those documents were only presented many years after Fred resigned in 1981.
This is just harassment of a man without the financial resources to defend himself against a very powerful person.
Since Fred is not allowed to talk about his plight, I’m trying to help him. Thank you.

And what does “the science” say, more generally, about the impact of vaccines on the mortality rate of infectious diseases? The answer is at odds with the religion of vaccine absolutism—a blind faith that justifies the current global rollout of the COVID-19 elixir (which, since its purpose is not to prevent infection, but to mitigate symptoms, isn’t really a vaccine).
Inconveniently, “the science” tells us that, by and large, the mortality rate of infectious diseases has, historically, declined because of improved sanitation (soap and sewerage), and clean drinking water, not vaccination.
That so many educated people are unconscious of this simple fact attests to its complete suppression by the media, and in our schools. So we’re obliged to do our best to make it known, just as it’s becoming downright dangerous to do so.
Let’s all finally face the fact that Trump is not a fascist or a populist, but only all about himself.
With the Democrats on top (of everything) in this next phase of the pro-wrestling match in Washington, it may soon be against the law to point this out.
While the right apparently believes that their side has never stolen an election, when in fact they’ve stolen contest after contest, especially since 2000, the “left” is just as mindlessly convinced that there’s “no evidence” that, this time around, their side stole the White House (and the Senate). Their claim that there’s “no evidence” of theft for Biden/Harris is every bit as false as it was back when the
Republicans were spinning it in favor of Bush/Cheney.
And it’s just as false as their portrayal of the fracas in the Capitol as an “attempted coup,” an “insurrection,” a “violent assault” on the great citadel of Our Democracy, by a (Putin-financed) “fascist” army. The evidence that that occurrence was a psy-op, managed to provide the pretext for the ongoing crackdown on political and intellectual dissent (a/k/a “conspiracy theory”), is wholly sound, with ever more of it emerging, though ever fewer of us can know it, as censorship intensifies online.
For this reason, Paul Craig Roberts’ overview of just some of the evidence of theft and orchestration is invaluable. (My only beef is that it over-emphasizes Shiva Ayyadurai’s findings, he not being the most reliable resource.) Whatever one’s opinion of our soon-to-be-ex-president (my own is low), those of us who care about the difference between truth and lie are more obliged than ever now to tell that all-important difference, loud and clear.
Since the multitudes who came to Washington to march were, in large part, working-class, and largely driven by resistance to the lockdown platform of the corporate-dominated Democratic Party, one wonders what Noam Chomsky thinks it means to be a leftist.
A case in which Bill Clinton and Bill Gates, AND Trump, are all tangential figures.
Why should anyone with such a record—gay or straight, trans- or “cis-gender”—hold so powerful a position in the federal healthcare bureaucracy? If it were Gretchen Whitmer, or Andrew Cuomo, or Gavin Newsom, all of whom ordered nursing homes to take in COVID patients, it would be no less outrageous.
