Someone with the user name “JPatrickBedell” made it clear in a 2007 post on Wikipedia that he was determined to find out the “truth of events such as the September 11 demolitions” and see that justice was served in the death of Colonel James Sabow. Sabow was a Marine Corps officer many believe was beaten to death in the backyard of his residence on the El Toro Marine Corps Air Base then shot in the head to make it seem as though he’d committed suicide. Conspiracy theorists believe Sabow’s death was an assassination. More here about Col. Sabow.
“J. Patrick Bedell” appeared to be now-deceased Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell’s preferred online handle, as detailed in this post.
The history of the Wikipedia post shows it was made in November, 2006 and edited through February, 2007 (until, of course, trolls started editing it today). After the jump is the full text of “JPatrickBedell’s” conspiracy and paranoia-rich screed, with a little commentary after:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
My hope is to use the creativity of markets and advanced technology to transcend the destructive regimes that have fastened themselves upon the world. I have dreamed for an number of years of creating v:production econosystems, which I hope to apply to the creation of v:security service econosystems using new and economic mechanisms and information technology.
I have a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and studied biochemistry at San Jose State University. I’ve studied electrical engineering with the goal of creating microsystems for molecular analysis. You can see a proposal to use aluminum anodization as an adsorption method for DNA molecules on CMOS chips at v:DNA_integrated_circuit/proposal_import_2007 (which originates from an unsuccessful DARPA proposal to create a “microMIRV” interoperable with standard firearms ammunition), and a proposal to use xenon difluoride to create a picoliter-scale computer-controlled device for sorting biomolecules (available at v:Capillary_electrode_array/proposal_import_2007), including DNA and protein molecules. My goals include the discovery of a protein sequence for the diamondase enzyme, enabling the creation of macroscale diamond structures, and the creation of self-assembled macrosystems with CMOS DNA-integrated circuits. The scale of these and other projects have led me to develop financial instruments representing information as a tool to manage large projects that are very knowledge-intensive.
I am determined to see that justice is served in the death of Colonel James Sabow, as a step toward establishing the truth of events such as the September 11 demolitions and institutions such as the coup regime of 1963 that maintains itself in power through the global drug trade, financial corruption, and murder, among other crimes. My work to develop information currency is an effort to create a framework for information management that uses financial markets to create the economic signals (prices) that will effect complex human actions in the real world based on specified information. My desire for justice led me to violate what I think is one of the most unjust laws, cannabis prohibition, by growing 16 cannabis plants on my balcony in Irvine, CA from March 2006 to June 2006. I’ve posted the Orange County, CA District Attorney’s complaint for this offense at https://cannabis.wikia.com/wiki/JPatrickBedell_2006-06-06_cannabis_felony_complaint .
One desired result of my effort is (will be) billions and billions of carefully cultivated, highly valuable cannabis plants growing throughout the United States with complete security of property. I have posted the image to the right in order to illustrate the use of cannabis as a monetary system using digital financial instruments. There are two information currency units in each of the PDF417 codes pictured. One of the information currency units is drawn from a series with “one gram cannabis” with the underlying asset, and the second ICU in each code has as its underlying asset the URL https://www.mises.org/humanaction/pdf/humanaction.pdf and the SHA-1 digest value of the file at that location (fd8205cb8b4793d43b57ba6f6c7367aa700c307a). This is a way of associating the work of Ludwig von Mises with financial value, which may be a tool to implement his ideas in reality. I hope someday to see full-reserve banking and observance of Article One, Section 10 of the US Constitution.
I apologize for the graphic content of some of my contributions, but detailed evidence is sometimes necessary to address important matters. I am very disturbed by the fact that Col. Sabow’s civilian superiors and their successors have been able to continue their narco-mercantilism. For historical comparison, I might resemble the odd German still complaining about the murders of the Night of the Long Knives in 1938(?). Of course, Wikipedia didn’t exist in 1938!
I am looking for collaborators for ongoing commercial and intellectual efforts. Email to jpbedell at mises.com is welcome!
John Patrick Bedell managed to connect himself to his marijuana arrest record as well as the 9/11 Truth movement and more telling than that, Ur-libertarian Ludwig von Mises.
Direct tie to one of the more influential libertarian thinkers notwithstanding, though, what seems clear from reading the above is J. Patrick Bedell wasn’t quite right in the head. He subscribed to a number of universal conspiracy theories. Did they drive him to make a final, more demented than Don Quixote style assault on the conspiracy theorist’s ultimate 5-sided windmill?
Hear more about what Bedell believed from his own lips here at Archive.org, along with two other audio files, in November, 2006. Make your own decision about where he was coming from. (Thanks to commenter sds for the link.)
