Stewart is editor at and

Stewart grew up on his family's farm located in NE Ohio's Summit County. In the middle of his last high-school year he asked his parents to give their permission for him to enroll, as a 17 year-old minor, in the US Naval Air Reserves "weekend warrior" O-2 training program at the Akron, Ohio Naval Air Station.

He graduated near the top of Hudson Township's 1951 class of forty-seven students. After spending part of that summer on active training duty, he commuted from home to Kent State University and to NAS Akron. The following summer his Navy Squadron flew an east coast logistical air wing based at Norfolk, VA Naval Air Station. He has fond memories of flying at 17 - 20 years of age in these Navy propeller-driven airplanes: PBY, SNJ, SNB, TBM, and R4D.

The Navy enabled him to transfer to Ohio State University and occupied his time again throughout the following summer. By December of 1955, at which time he earned his Bachelor of Science degree, the war in Korea had ended. More importantly for him, education and developing personal convictions precluded him from pursuing a military career.

He went to work within a few days of graduation, with a "Q" Security Clearance from the Atomic Energy Commission, in a laboratory at Battelle Memorial Institute, within walking distance of the college. An avid reader, by 1960 he no longer considered an academic or military career, nor a lifetime spent working in the confines of a laboratory. He took a job in Ohio with Lever Brothers Company, a large consumer products marketing firm that offered a two-year in-field sales-training program. After the two years he was promoted and transferred to New York City where he eventually participated in the introduction of new products.

He resigned from Lever after six years to triple his income, switching from marketing consumer products to industrial sales. By 1968 he had become one of the nation's top producing truck-body salesmen, selling to major truck-rental companies. After learning the techniques of successful distributor marketing, he moved on to become regional sales manager of a company for a couple of years and then the general sales manager of a division of a publicly traded company. He drove the business into a profitable position within his first full quarter's accounting period.

In 1976 he decided to go into business for himself and to return to his mid-western roots. In the course of a year he built an early Century-21 real estate franchise into the SE Ohio region's leading office in all areas: recruiting, listings, sales, and profit. Bored with that business, he began to study the way that personal financial products were marketed, especially "savings-type" or "money-back" life-insurance. These were financial contracts that he could never fully comprehend.

After sending away for The Consumers Union Guide to Life Insurance and reading it carefully, it became obvious to him that accurate information was needed from other than the industry's trained salesmen and their clever General Agents.

He then studied several books on the subject, including Norman F. Dacey's What's Wrong with Your Life Insurance, G. Scott Reynolds' The Mortality Merchants, the classic chapter #13 on life-insurance in Venita Van Caspel's Money Dynamics, and Randal A. Hendricks definitive study, "A Legal Analysis of the Sale of Life Insurance", [The Houston Law Review 810 (1969)].

He decided to recruit and train a marketing organization that would accurately inform consumers, enabling them to make financial decisions in the interest of their families rather than in those of already financially bloated life-insurance companies.

He met and joined forces with a couple of older highly successful and experienced sales executives, the men who introduced the marketing of mutual funds to the American public. Together, over the next several years, he worked with the progressive insurance companies for which they designed products his own company marketed.

In 1980 he wrote and self-published Financial Recovery. Advertised in full-page ads in "Life Insurance Selling" magazine, where it received a favorable review, thousands of copies were bought by individual agents and agencies across America where it helped to create substantial industry changes.

From 1980 to 1985 he built, owned, and managed a company that became one of the top volume diversified brokerage agencies in America, marketing selected financial products nationally, including tax-deferred single-premium annuities before the tax-law was changed from FIFO to LIFO effective Aug. 14, 1982, and selling attractive unregistered tax-sheltered investments before the IRS eliminated them with TEFRA. Before the personal computer age, he struggled to learn how to program the TI-59 in order to provide responsible agents throughout the country a means of calculating and presenting replicable and accountable financial product analyses for their clients at the point of sale.

He made the stupid mistake by entering politics. A couple of friends and Stewart picked a slate of state-wide candidates after helping the new Libertarian Party gain Ohio ballot access. He ran for the Ohio Senate, campaigning on rejection of the state income tax, repeal of the federal income tax, and audit of the Federal Reserve System. He put a sign on the back of his motorcycle's seat that read, "Stop the Federal Income Tax". It got a lot of approving honks. In retrospect, he realizes how politically naive he was at the time. He did relatively well at the polls but unexpectedly generated personally destructive and formidable enemies.

His brilliant younger brother Bob, a PhD geologist living in Florida, had for years been encouraging him to move south. In January 1986, during a particularly cold Ohio winter, he relocated to Sarasota, Florida, a community which he loves today as much as he did the first day he found it. He hopes to live peacefully there to age 100 among interesting neighbors. He is best contacted as Stewart in

American Jewish Support is Needed Desperately

by Stewart Ogilby, Editor of &


The American Republic enabled bright hard working immigrants, including impoverished “Old World” Jews, opportunities for themselves and their families. Individuals among the nation’s best, including America’s Jews, together with future generations of the continent’s other immigrant progeny, are now faced with the destruction of their society and the loss of everything achieved by themselves, their families, and their hard working immigrant ancestors.

Individuals with a cold intellect who deplore and despise the obvious weaknesses of democracy now dominate America’s government, banking, law and media. We must expose and remove from their positions of power those who have torn apart our American Constitution, the precious promise of human Liberty and accountable limited government (Amendment #10) that defined our former “New World” Republic.

This is not Hitler’s Germany. Americans must never permit a criminal government, before or after an upcoming revolution, that places persons into concentration camps or work-camp prisons due to either dissent, open expression of which is explicitly guaranteed by the Bill of Rights of our Constitution, or based on their ethnicity, FEMA’s puzzling camps notwithstanding.

We must not allow the trick of being called “anti-Semitic” to stop us from facing squarely the national crisis now posed by Zionist criminals. America’s Jews are in an increasingly difficult situation and concerned about a possible backlash, especially from ignorant but politically powerful religious right-wing Pentacostals whose nexus to Israel seems to pose no contradiction to their traditional rabid anti-Semitism. That enigma, involving mystical prophetic “end-times”, may best be understood as appealing to the same psychological factors as eschatology did during early Christianity. That unfulfilled apocalyptic prediction was elucidated by Albert Schweitzer in “Out of My Life and Thought”.

All Jews are not political Zionists, especially in the United States, although early education has too often been designed to instill persecution paranoia combined with a youthful emotional attachment to the State of Israel. For many, it is difficult to remove blinders sufficiently to acknowledge the obvious fact that Israel’s political Zionist leadership has resulted in creating a criminally murderous State having no relationship to moral tenets of Judaism.

The reality is that Israel was established to expand the worldwide power of a remarkable family, now the Rothschild banking dynasty, by means of political and military strength of The State. Lip-service given by Zionists to recreating an ancient land of spiritual significance is a device used to garner financial and political support. In the USA financial ambitions of opportunistic Zionists, both Jewish and non-Jewish, fueled by today’s political leadership of Israel, are creating havoc internationally and have grasped the wealth of this country. At the end of the day, it is always about money and power.

There will be no future for any of us, or our children, unless America’s Jews break away from political Zionist leaders and, as concerned Americans, educators, doctors, lawyers, and community leaders, develop, energize, and support anti-Zionist movements.

    Over the centuries Judaism acquired a huge body of laws, some sillier than others in today’s world. They focused on piety and subservience to a sky god. Many addressed detailed rituals and prohibitions. Mosaic Law (10 commandments formulated by a lawgiver to humans barely emerging from the Stone Age) was attributed to the big guy above. Although injunctions against thievery and murder strike us today as basic, at one time they were new ideas. Having big guy in the sky giving them precludes controversy. We can agree that the formulation by Rabbi Jesus of an affirmative ethic to replace injunctive laws constitutes a radical theological step. From a practical standpoint, to live by Jesus’ instructions as
    recorded in the synoptic gospels is impossible. When Judaic laws are sifted we come up with a blueprint
    for living peacefully together, man having been created in the image of the sky guy, all human life being sacred, and even non-Jews guaranteed a place in the sun as righteous Gentiles simply through following the rules. These are what I refer to as “moral tenets of Judaism”. All of the above, however, is irrelevant. The Khazar Empire was a long way from territory farmed by offspring of Abraham. They embraced Judaism for strategic reasons according to Koestler and others. Herman Muller wrote that the great gift of Jews to western civilization was writing and narrative. Narrative and literacy proved invaluable for tribal survival following the Ashekanazi diaspora. They were excluded from owning land and working in the Holy Roman Empire’s agrarian economy by the police power of the Vatican’s priesthood. The unlettered masses were kept in line by the enforcement of Christian mysticism. When it comes to propaganda it’s never practical to have facts stand in the way of objectives. Today we have it in spades. The religious facade of Israel is just that, aside from the bearded orthodox. It is amusing to see what are clearly European faces beneath beards of guys in black claiming to be Semites. Does Bibi resemble Yassir Arrafat? Remnants of Abe’s progeny, Sephardic Jews, are cousins to Arab neighbors, and treated as second class citizens. For displaced Europeans to embrace any religion today, Judaism included, would clearly be anachronistic. As I wrote, the name of the game is money and power.

    Oh, PULLLEEEse, let’s stop talking about “the moral tenets of Judaism.” Let’s talk about UFO’s. Let’s talk about Martians, they’re much easier to find. If you think I’m wrong, why don’t you, in 200 words or less PLEASE TELL me what the so-called “moral tenets of Judaism ARE.”
    I’ll bet my house and everything I own you can’t do it. That’s because they don’t exist. Christ, as an example, made his commandments clear in less than 6 words:

    “Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself.”

    Everyone with one tenth of a brain knows the truth about the so-called “religion” of Judaism. I’d love to see someone try to defend the indefensible, however. It just shows “the Jews” up for what they really are.

      In response to your challenge, let’s not forget “Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself.” is found first in Leviticus 19:18 [so called (Jewish) Old Testament].
