Prayer Pole Make-over

This past Tuesday, I attended a ceremony at the Prayer Pole in downtown Ashland, placing an eagle feather in the hand of the indian woman. I took some photos to record the event. The RED Earth Descendants would like to raise funds to build a shelter to keep the Prayer Pole out of the rain. It has been quite the busy week.

Political Prisoner Needs Help

Dr. Lenny met Ed Steele at the Christine trial in Roseburg, OR about a decade ago. A pair of local kids were accused of kidnapping some state children's services agents because they took their own kids back by force and the agents involved were shuttled one highway exit down the road. Ed is a good lawyer, but his clients didn't win that one. I have no doubt that this could happen here - we need to support people and not allow them to get eaten by the machinations of the state. Hence - this note from Mrs. Steele.

Dear Friends of Edgar Steele:

Edgar J. Steele has been entrapped by a legal system that presumes his guilt in the face of false charges. Ed has been in jail and solitary confinement for three months in Spokane, WA because of false allegations that he masterminded a murder-for-hire plot to kill me and my mother. I have never believed that Ed was involved in such a plot! Ed has defended the politically incorrect for years; people who, were it not for him, never would have had representation. Those who oppose Ed hate the truth and have threatened to harm Ed, me and our family in the past. Clearly, he is a political prisoner of the USA and quite literally, he is fighting for his life. There is a growing number of people who are banding together to make it possible for Ed to have the defense he needs against bogus government charges. We are asking you to join us.

Here is the bottom line: without experts to prove that false government tape recordings are only imitations of Ed’s speech patterns (using voice cloning technology), and without experts to present the truth about alleged explosives, Ed will be “sent to the gallows” for something he didn’t do. We have an opportunity to prevent this great injustice. This is not the first time the government has made false criminal allegations against innocent people. Thus, it is our choice whether we want to be a part of the movement to stop this kind of government-sponsored insanity. Let me tell you, we sincerely need your help.

I humbly ask for your assistance, as I am financially strapped and unable to raise the amount of money necessary to provide a proper defense for my husband. Any financial gift you can make will go directly to the Ed Steele Defense Fund, to be placed in an attorney’s trust account and to be used exclusively for Ed’s defense. Contributions of $50.00 and $100.00 will be greatly appreciated as we try to make our goal of $250,000.00 needed to pay both attorney fees and the legal costs of this case. Time is critical as we need to have a new attorney on board soon who will work for Ed.

Edgar needs an attorney who is willing to challenge the FBI’s conduct and show that the government is wrong. Edgar can’t move forward without your help in funding his defense. Your kind financial assistance will help us to engage a qualified attorney (who has already been contacted) who believes in Ed’s innocence and will work vigorously to protect Ed’s rights and confront the government.

These are tough financial times. But, please give a moment to think about my husband, sitting in a jail cell, day after day, with no hope, not even able to help in his own defense. I can’t visit him with him to give him hope or moral support, because the judge has entered a very unfair “no-contact” order.

Even the smallest donation will go a long way to help win this case and expose the corruption behind the false charges. It may even help others who also face false accusations by the government.

Please make your contribution check / money order payable to:

The Edgar Steele Defense Fund
P.O. Box 1255
Sagle, Idaho 83860

(Funds will be held in an attorney’s trust account.) Or, go online and donate by credit card and through PayPal at:


My sincerest and most heartfelt thanks for your time in considering this plea for help,

Cyndi G. Steele

White fish swimming
In shallow coated ponds
Appreciate air and water
Functions of life itself

Seeking wisdom
We approach the gates
Differentiating truth itself
In integral proportion

Another fall day passes
Change enters beside itself
Patterns form to elucidate
Many questions configured

A still mind clarifies itself
Conjuring harmonic keys
Placing puzzle pieces
Where white fish swim

Why do we still deal with these people?

I wonder how much customer service would improve if the customer could bill the corporation for every minute spent on hold waiting for service. I have spent hours waiting to get a real person - i should be reimbursed for my time. Vache - you are a lawyer - any ideas?
