Although Doug Stout, 77, won't pin illegal entry on his property to his
harsh comments about Bush, but says one thing for sure: "I don't smoke
pot and everybody in town knows it." After hovering over his property
with a helicopter, officers then swarmed on his land, looked at some shrubbery
and then left without any explanation.

Don Stout looked up into the Midwestern sky one afternoon
two weeks ago and saw a strange helicopter flying over his five-acre piece
of land in rural Albany, Ohio.
Before he knew what happened, the 77-year-old long-time resident,
law-abiding citizen and Korean War veteran had eight law enforcement officials
swarm on his property, checking the place out for marijuana.
Never before having a run-in with the law, Stout said the
heavy-handed looking group of law enforcement thugs “came and went
without saying a word” after suspiciously looking at a large bush
on his property not in the slightest bit resembling a pot plant.
“I’ve been here since 1994 and everybody’s
knows me including the sheriff. I never smoked marijuana and they know it,
but I think they just like terrorizing people,” said Stout in a telephone
conversation from his rural home, adding he still hasn’t received
an answer from anyone why law enforcement officials invaded his privacy
and entered his land without a proper search warrant.
“It scared the hell out of me as eight or ten men swarmed
my place. I was weeding my garden and the next thing you know, they were
on my property, looked at this bush and left without saying a word. It was
ridiculous, but the sheriff, the deputy sheriff and the game warden all
raided my place for no reason and I am still looking for an explanation.”
Although Stout can’t pinpoint why authorities entered
his property without a warrant, earlier that day he aired his strong opinions
against President Bush, calling him an outright liar, on a free speech and
truth-telling talk radio show on the popular WAIF AM770 local radio station.
Stout said he has been calling in regularly voicing his anti-Bush
opinions, saying people in rural Ohio are finally starting to wake up to
lies, deceit and treachery imposed on the American people by what he calls
a “lying dog of a President.’
“I think he and the rest of his buddies are corrupt,
down right crazy and Bush should be impeached plain and simple for lying
to the people about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,” said the
former Korean War veteran, who lashed out at Bush for going to war illegally
and in the process killing thousands of innocent civilians, including more
than 1,700 GI’s.
“I think George Bush is a liar and is personally responsible
for the deaths of many good young men in order that his rich buddies could
profit from this illegal war.”
Considering himself a “true American” who honorably
fought for his country and drove a Greyhound bus for many years, the plain
speaking Bush critic thinks America is in a crisis and at the brink of martial
law at the hands of government tyrants bent on destroying the country from
“I think we have lost this country and many people feel
it’s too late and feel helpless about doing anything about it,”
said Stout. “I am pretty outspoken about a lot of things and it wouldn’t
surprise me if another terrorist hits us harder than 9/11, putting the country
under a state of emergency and martial law while at the same time taking
the heat off Bush.
“This reminds me of Nazi Germany. The
people are being fed propaganda and in turn the dollar is going to hell
as are the rest of our freedoms. I don’t think we should give up our
freedoms in order to be safer, when all the government is trying to do is
take us over from within.
“The Founding Fathers would have never stood for what
is going on and would have thrown Bush and his buddies out on their ears.
I think the people of Ohio are starting to wake up and I do not intend to
stop talking about how I feel on that talk radio show.”
Besides the strange raid on Stout’s property, the radio
station giving the thumbs up to air the controversial truth-telling radio
program in the traditionally conservative heartland also has reported mysteriously
having its transmitter knocked out on two occasions from “two mysterious
bolts of lightening.”
Housewife Lauren Dowling, another avid WAIF listener and unofficial
promoter of the truth-telling show that schedules many of the guests for
broadcaster Sharon Elliot and station owner Joe Edwards, isn’t pointing
fingers but said this week from her rural home that the two “bolts
of lightening” in the last six weeks was very unusual.
Although Elliot and Edwards have been airing a controversial
show from their station headquarters in Nelsonville, Ohio, radio for quite
some time, it hasn’t been until recently that they decided to bring
on even more controversial figures like anti-establishment broadcaster Alex
Jones and others to talk the traditionally mainstream audience at WAIF.
“And Maureen Jones just came on the other day educating
people about fluoride in the water, which was very interesting,” said
Dowling, adding calls have been coming in from all over the South East quadrant
of Ohio, including parts of West Virginia about the station that has small
town roots but a large broadcast reach.
“I thought it was time the people of our community heard
the truth from people like Alex Jones, who by the way, probably shocked
a few listeners, but had a very important message which has been basically
censored by the mainstream press.
“I’m just an average Mom, giving out a common
sense dose of the truth to these arrogant leaders.
.Besides Jones, WAIF is scheduling for future morning shows
other alternative broadcasters and activists basically silenced in rural
America by the Bush propaganda machine and a cooperative press.
Plans also include interviewing many people who have had their
voices silenced about 9/11, especially eye-witness, victims and journalists
who have struggled hard to wake up a sleeping country.
“It’s never too late and people around here are
starting to open their hearts and minds, tuning in to listen and participate,”
And Stout, who many people in the community believe had his
civil rights violated by law enforcement officials for voicing his regularly
on WAIF, had one last message to President Bush before getting to the bottom
of why officials illegally swarmed down on his private property:
“I don’t intend to trade of security for my rights
as an American. I believe we need to take our country back from these thugs
and brown shirts before our jobs, our financial security and our lives are
taken away from us right before our very eyes.
“I want the American people to know that a lot of other
people here in Ohio feel like I do and also know the election was stolen
by Bush. He is losing popularity because a lot of people over here are finally
starting to see through his lies, lies that are costing young American lives
every day this illegal war continues.”
