Fact or Fiction? Meet Peter Bolten
Peter Bolten was introduced to me through mutual friends. Peter found his way to Pensacola in 2021 during COVID. Peter’s novel looks deeply at the Washington D.C. ‘two-step’. He does a deep dive into terrorist activities in the USA and the political instability in Washington. Peter shares fictional stories from various agencies of government that may touch you deeply. His ‘deep dive’ into Deep State activities is his inspiration for the intriguing fictional stories he’s crafted. His book is entitled Deo et Patriae (God & Country). The true stories in this nation have been fictionalized by Peter. However, one can see an interesting correlation. Peter is looking for a publisher to bring this to market.

Fact or Fiction? Meet Peter Bolten
Narrator: With breaking news and political commentary from a public servant, serial entrepreneur, community leader, philanthropist, and American patriot, and a darn nice guy, it’s time for the GrassRoots TruthCast and your host, Gene Valentino.
Gene Valentino: Hi folks and welcome to another edition of Gene Valentino here with a very interesting guest that I’ve just asked to come
on our show today. It’s Peter Bolton. Peter Bolton is an individual who has come from a family of government service, a lot of military and support and time spent by his family in serving this nation. He’s also an entrepreneur, came out of the insurance industry and down from New England and Jersey and ended up for some crazy reason as a neighbor here in Pensacola.
And we’re going to [00:01:00] have a pretty interesting conversation today. He’s written a book and that’s what we’re going to spend our time talking about. The book’s entitled Deo E Patria, Deo E Patria, of God and Country. A book that challenges you to determine fact from fiction, right from wrong, government oppression, oversight, and control of your right to free speech, your right, your right to public access, your right to contribute to this nation, which has been built for centuries on principles and not personalities, but principles.
And that’s what we’re going to have a discussion about. The question I challenge you to consider, and we’re going to post contact information for you as well, that the issue I’d like you to consider is trying to sift through fact from fiction. Welcome Peter Buckley. Thank you, Jim. Peter Bolton, excuse me.
I have a friend named Peter [00:02:00] Buckley. Peter Bolton. Tell us about yourself in a few words.
Peter Bolten: Well, I’ve spent the last 30 years as a, as an independent financial advisor and insurance broker. So that kind of doesn’t mix in with what I’m doing here today. But myself, like, like many Americans have, have seen what’s happened in recent years with our country and following the huge debacle in the 2016 election.
That’s really what triggered me, the false accusations about Russian collusion and the, the unbelievable attempts to keep President Trump out of office. So with, with my background as, as a researcher on, on a personal side, not professional and, and a huge reader and studier of history and the military.
I decided to put together a storyline, a fictional storyline, [00:03:00] that’s a, it’s, it’s historical fiction, but you have to realize historical fiction is what has happened as well as what just happened.
Gene Valentino: Do you think you’re doing this just because you’ve reached a time in your life like me where I have time to do podcasts and you have time to write a book?
Or is, are we reacting? I know my answer. Or are we reacting to, the condition of the times of today, what do you think’s going on in our nation?
Peter Bolten: For me personally, it was a reaction. There’s no doubt. A reaction to? A reaction to an oppressive state that has grown continually more oppressive since, I would say, the Patriot Act, but most significantly since 2008 and that election.
Gene Valentino: I have friends in the intelligence agencies. [00:04:00] And I am amazed with our conver I’ve had several conversations with Peter before bringing him on the program today. I’m, let me just put it to you this way. I’m stunned with the parallels of the fictional characters and the events that you’ve described. As it relates to the reality of what’s going on with what I would call deep state oversight, control, and suppression of today’s American citizen.
Peter Bolten: You’ve hit the nail on the head. There’s no doubt there. The, the concept that I, I came up with following the election, and it took me some months to, to come to terms with what I wanted to do and how I wanted to go about it. Some of my favorite authors go to Tom Clancy who writes very intricate, detailed accounts of people protecting and defending [00:05:00] the citizens of the United States and our country from, from threats, both foreign and domestic.
I also really like the historical fiction styles of, of Leon Uris and James Mishner. And they, reading their historical fiction often will give you more historical information and teach you more about what’s happened in the past than going to a history class where, if you can find a history class these days.
Gene Valentino: So many of these people, and therefore the material for these authors, including yourself, Comes out of reality. It’s amazing how many people are coming forward, specifically whistleblowers your age and mine that are now stepping up and saying, Hey, we we need to get this out there. Is it too little too late?
Is writing a book like what you’ve revealed? I’ll get to the book in a minute, folks. But is what you’ve written about too [00:06:00] late? I mean, is the house already burned down or are you late to the fire?
Peter Bolten: There’s a fire and a response needed, but we’re not going to be putting out foundations. There’s still hope and chance, and that’s a chance for reversing some of what we’re experiencing.
The problem is, in my estimation, is that the average American… And the average government employee are so entrenched in the bubble of their profession, their career, and their work that they often don’t get to dig deeper than what is presented on the surface, both through newscasts, through social media.
And now, as we’re finding through the investigations, particularly the case in Missouri versus the Biden administration on censorship, we’re finding that these sources are all completely manipulated. Many have suspected that for a long time, but now it’s confirmed when you have the [00:07:00] CIA and the FBI actually housing themselves in Google, in Facebook, in Twitter, and manipulating, material censoring, trains of thought that don’t agree with the government narrative.
That becomes scary stuff. Most of it’s superficial to the general population, but people are waking up and that’s the first step is waking up.
Gene Valentino: I’m going to be referring to this a few times in our one hour conversation. How threatened were we by Donald Trump versus Obama?
Peter Bolten: We being
Gene Valentino: who? We, the Americans.
We Americans. Donald
Peter Bolten: Trump was a threat to the entrenched, as we call it now, the deep state. There, there’s a bureaucratic state that exists in Washington, D. C., within the Beltway, and a significant portion of that deep state is made up of people that you would call [00:08:00] SES employees of the U. S.
government. SES? Yes Senior Executive Service, which is a level in government employee that gets you to the highest levels of compensation. It also gives you the highest levels of power within the bureaucracy and it makes you virtually impossible to fire. President Trump had made a… An attempt to change the rules regarding SES employment within the U.
S. government so that in fact, he would be able to fire people. As his famous words were, you’re fired. He wanted to employ that within the government for non performers or people who in fact were injuring us and the bureaucracy didn’t allow him to implement that plan. And
Gene Valentino: obviously these were motivations for you to consider writing a book.
Tell us more specifically about the book.
Peter Bolten: My, my story involves a, an intelligence agency [00:09:00] created at, just before 2008’s election. And that intelligence agency takes up various issues and threats to the country and to our, our people around the world. And resolves them independently. They work without government oversight.
They have Title 10 and Title 50 authorities, both on the military and intelligence side. And they operate independent. They’re not part of the CIA. They’re not part of JSOC. Although people from the CIA and Joint Special Operations Command do work there.
Gene Valentino: You talk… The terms in which you’re talking right now…
Are they based on fact or your presupposition of fact based on what you’re seeing in the media? Do you have an insight with what I would call people from any level of national security that prompt you, not only for this conversation, but for your book?
Peter Bolten: Well, there are two [00:10:00] sources that I get my information from.
Research, personally, and I do a lot of that. I’m a huge reader. I also have been fortunate enough to have friends that either are actively doing this type of work or have retired from it. And one of the most amazing things I’ve found is that as folks walk away from a career, either in the military or in government and employ, they don’t realize until they’ve retired how much inside the bubble they were and how little they knew on how the rest of the population of the country.
Viewed what’s going
Gene Valentino: on? Wait a minute. Are you saying that the specific person in the agency of government maybe was being told by a boss? Do as I say, not as I do more of a, just focus on this and don’t worry about everything else? Absolutely, yes. No, you, one of the things that triggered that question is the fact that you and I [00:11:00] have friends in the C I A, the F B I and other intelligence agencies.
I’m stunned with the, the level of consistency and reality to what is considered fiction in your book, to some of the realities that exist through these, in and out of these intelligence agencies today.
Peter Bolten: Well, not to go back to the same author, although I do hold Clancy in high esteem when he published his first book, The Hunt for Red October, the first number one bestseller that he put out.
He was questioned by government agencies across the spectrum. Where did you get this information? This is top secret. How did you find this out? And it was later learned that, in fact, it was all available in the National Archives. This was all open source intelligence, and he hadn’t revealed anything that was classified.
He had [00:12:00] simply taken information publicly available and woven a fictional story around it. And I’ve used a similar method. I don’t claim to be as great as Clancy. I could hope to be. It’s that technique of using historical fiction and real events and building a story around it with believable and relatable
Gene Valentino: characters.
Folks, we’re talking with Peter Bolton, a novelist, a very good novelist, in fact, and he’s an author of a book he’s about to publish called Deo Patre. And Deo Patria will be published soon. We’re looking for a publisher now. If you have some insight you’d like to share with us, please reach out to us on GeneValentino.
com. I’m sure Peter would appreciate some insight. He’s got a book that’s got to run at least 400 pages, and there’s more salacious material in there. I should say ear catching, eye catching information based on fact. Speaking of that, talk to me [00:13:00] about Phil.
Peter Bolten: Phil Haney. Phil, Phil Haney was a… An employee of the Department of Homeland Security.
Was he a friend of yours? No. No, he was not a friend of mine. I never met the man. He just had an unbelievably interesting story that struck me. Back in the second, the second term of the Obama administration is when he became more nationally known. But, Phil Haney came to DHS through the Department of Agriculture.
He was somebody who studied insects. And using his study of insects, he was able to find migration trends and behaviors that, interestingly enough, related directly to tracking terrorists. He could track ants, and he applied this to tracking terrorists. Really stunning stuff. Wow. He worked at the National Targeting Center in Reston, [00:14:00] Virginia, and he not only targeted and identified multiple Islamic radical terror networks and individual jihadis as organizations, but also individuals as they were coming into the country.
And when the, the Obama administration made the move through a, a supposed public outcry against Islamophobia. They made a decision to not only bring many of what we would consider our enemies Into positions of influence in the federal government, but they also eliminated a load of investigative material and terror investigations that existed both in the C I A F B I and Homeland Security databases.
They simply, Erase them. Haney saw this as a problem, and out of all the whistleblowers that came forward during the Obama [00:15:00] years, I think there were eight, they weren’t allowed to tell their story. They were all charged with one crime or another to prevent them from talking. Haney’s the only one that actually did testify before Congress, and he talked about how wrong it was for us to be opening the door, our front and back door, to known threats simply because terrorists had constitutional rights.
Gene Valentino: Okay, he testified before Congress about the, as a whistleblower, about the wrongdoing that was going on and what happened
Peter Bolten: to him. Well, he, he ended up leaving the agency after, as opposed to the wrongdoing being investigated, he was investigated. Typical Washington D. C. two step, open your mouth, you’ll [00:16:00] be the one investigated.
So, he ended up leaving the agency, and he wrote a book, and he wrote a book, the title was See Something, Say Nothing, because that’s what they were being taught. That’s what the new, the new philosophy was at DHS. Oh, we can’t, we can’t violate civil rights, we can’t talk, we can’t identify terrorists that are known terrorists because we might be insulting their faith.
So he blew the whistle on that in 2020 right after the pandemic hit and things were really winding up here in the United States regarding the pandemic. There was a lot of confusion. Ney was in the process of getting another book published, possibly getting his job
Gene Valentino: back opening Based on the, based on the pandemic?
Peter Bolten: based on his. is his documentation of wrongdoing at [00:17:00] Homeland Security and the FBI by reassigning investigators into terrorism because we happen to like certain terrorists. At least that’s what the Obama administration would have you think. And the door was opening again for him to get back on board at DHS.
In February, February, I believe it was the 20th. Of 2020. I might be wrong on that date. He was found just a couple miles from his house, with a single gunshot wound to the chest. And he had written to both his fiancée, who he was planning on getting married several months later and several friends that if I’m ever found dead, I’m not suicidal.
Please investigate. What year? This was 2020, in February of 2020, just as the pandemic was coming off. Almost as if the pandemic was being used as a cover, an obfuscation [00:18:00] of what looked like an assassination.
Gene Valentino: Why has not the media put that
Peter Bolten: out? You can pull up articles that are still available on the internet regarding Phil Haney.
His, his former fiance is currently running as a GOP candidate for Senate in the state of California D, D. L. Pando Denise she would support, I believe she would support what I’ve said here today. I’ve never spoken to her, but I’ve researched her as well, and she was shaken by this, and she also does not believe the official account that he committed suicide.
Gene Valentino: And that’s what has gotten my attention with you, Peter, is the level of research you’ve done to substantiate these points. Some people getting before the press or the media come on with a level of hyperbole or vitriol, and they’re ramped up about something. And three quarters of it is, untrue based on half [00:19:00] truths.
Mm hmm. And in your case, I’ve done some research on some things that you brought up with me in the living room and in your text, your initial draft, that I can’t find fault with. So, your research is very good, and folks, I think it’s a basis, I’ll be making a plug in the future, in the next few minutes about his book.
He has a website, Culper, Culper, Culper.
Peter Bolten: It’s, it’s not a website.
Gene Valentino: It’s going to be. It will be. Culper Press, C U L P E R Press dot com. And, if you want to write write Peter today, let me put a plug in. His email address is Culper, C U L P E R press, P R E S S, at Protonmail. com. Write Peter directly.
And ask him to maybe give you some insight on some things of suspicion to you as it relates to national security or the antics in and around politics in the last five years. This is a very good [00:20:00] topic for us to pursue again in the future. You know what we’re doing? We’re buckshotting today and throwing about 20 topics out there that are, that are laced somehow with.
And if the truth be known, each one of those topics is a 20 minute discussion but we’re just kind of rapid firing through some of them today for purposes of our interview with Peter Bolton.
Peter Bolten: Oh, Gene, you know, there’s an old saying in comedy, in every comedy, every joke or routine, Has to have a touch of truth to make it funny.
Oh yeah. And every good work of fiction like this also has to touch on reality and be relatable to be interesting.
Gene Valentino: But what you’re doing is causing the public to drill down into the legitimacy. of an efficacy of behavior, what’s going on with the CIA, the FBI? Look, this isn’t just about Obama, [00:21:00] but Obama was orchestrating A strategy that has many tentacles to it.
John Brennan the head of the c i a James Clapper national Security Agency, n ss a these people were soldiers for Obama. Mm-hmm. executing on Obama’s wishes. It’s hard for one person to do what he has done alone. But it, to me it’s a it’s a perpetration of the biggest corruption and fraud that most Americans don’t see.
And because of social media, because of the internet, because of the way we are able to get our messaging out today to folks around the nation, around the world you’re advantaged by jump starting past the Pollyannish views of things that we live in some sort of an artificial narrative and get more to the core of of, of what’s going on in this nation, in this world, you know, that’s the big change.
That’s the big Genesis to me in the human [00:22:00] condition is how, because of the acceleration in technology we’re going to be seeing resolutions to bad government and good government happen much quicker because of the way things are going to be revealed much quicker. I’m talking to Peter Bolton a novelist.
An entrepreneur, a man with some hardcore insight on some of our national security issues, and the stories relating to some of the leading figures of this nation, the worker bees behind the scenes, some of them in the dark, some of them very much out front perpetrating the fraud against America. We’re going to take a break.
We’ll be back in a few minutes with Peter Bolton right after this.
Gene Valentino: Hi everybody. Gene Valentino, founder of Gene Valentino’s Grassroots Truth Cast. This segment is the [00:23:00] opening segment of 11 segments. To follow. The 11 segments will be each of the amendments to the second Bill of Rights to the Constitution of the United States, which I’ve written as suggestions. To improve the governing democracy, the democratic republic in which we live and work today.
You know, the constitution of the United States is a document written to protect the people from the overreaching government power, the overreaching government hand. And it’s supposed to be able to unite people based on respect and individual liberty and freedom. It presumes that our government. Is one that succeeds, that governs less, not governs more.
Meaning of the people, by the people. And for [00:24:00] the people. The republic, which is why we call it a democratic republic, has more to do with the concept of a decentralized form of government. In fact, in the early days, our founding fathers reached out to the different states of the nation in just that way and asked them to sign on to this thing called the Declaration of Independence.
Then the Constitution and to do so, it was a way of gathering the many together of different cultures, different religions, different ways of life, and ask them to form one United America. It was a different, different, a difficult challenge, but one that worked and has worked longer and better than any other governance in this world.
But over the decades, over the two centuries, and more so recently, we’ve [00:25:00] seen an acceleration of dysfunction, bad behavior, deceit, treachery, and abuse of that beautiful democratic process. And for that reason, I’ve proposed this second bill of rights. This second Bill of Rights complements the first Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, and the 17 more.
A total of 27 amendments to the Constitution exist today. This Bill of Rights I propose is the second Bill of Rights, 11 more amendments to the Constitution. I’d like you to sit back and join me. Take one or two of these in sequence. Obviously, you’ll find them on the website, which is where you’ve seen this.
www. genevalentino. com The second Bill of Rights on the top tab toolbar of the website. The first one and the other eleven [00:26:00] will follow. Stay tuned.
Gene Valentino: Hi folks and welcome back to the second half of our interview with Peter Bolton, a novelist, an entrepreneur, a person I’m guessing is near the same age as me. With some real life experiences, he’s brought to the table his new novel. He’s writing Deo Patre God and Country from the Latin. And he’s going to be publishing that book very shortly.
We’re trying to find a good publisher to do it with. So if you have a recommendation or have someone you’d like us to partner up with. We’re interested in helping Peter get his book to market. This is a very interesting insight on our current condition of national security. It’s our national security, but it’s set against a backdrop of world events [00:27:00] and other players from around the globe that are, have no other agenda but to see America fail.
We’re a nation of good intentions. We’re well spirited philanthropists, and we’re very benevolent by our very nation, by our very nature as, as a nation. And we’ve allowed that woke thinking to overcome that which must come first, and that’s the protection of our constitutional republic. Peter brings that into light with his book, Deo Patri, and absent anything else, GeneValentino.
com, contact us. We’ll make sure Peter talks to you directly about how you might get a future copy. Peter, welcome back. I always appreciate it. We’ve had several conversations up to now, and every time I chat with you. I have contacts in government and intelligence services. I’m stunned with the degree to which you are on target with some of the things [00:28:00] you’re writing about in your book, some of the documents and manuscripts you’ve given me to look at.
And and by the way, I owe a. I owe a veteran administration doctor a thank you and we’ll leave it there. He’s from the, he’s from the region and he in fact, he and I never met. We were chatting on the internet together and he, he told me I better take a good look at this guy named Peter Bolton and I called you directly or you got me and next thing you know, we’ve become very good friends as well.
So I’m going to pick up where we left off about a compromise starting back at the by Obama administration, not just with Obama, but the players around him. Talk to me about the disintegration of our government since the Obama administration from your point of view.
Peter Bolten: Well, that’s, that’s a big one. We’ll just talk
Gene Valentino: about the, well, some of the specific incidents.
Peter Bolten: The, the Obama administration it, it’s the first [00:29:00] administration in the history of our country where in the past, if you were called a communist or a Marxist, it was a bad thing. It was something that you shunned, you denied. The Obama administration brought forth appointees and people who not only voted for the Communist Party in their past, when it became the director of the CIA, but were openly proud of being Marxist and Communist.
And that was a major seismic shift in government.
Gene Valentino: But didn’t we have that back during the McCarthy era where they were calling people in as communists around World War II as
Peter Bolten: well? McCarthy is an interesting example because defectors from the Soviet Union who came to the United States and gave us volumes of information.
On the activities of the KGB, [00:30:00] as well as after the fall of the Soviet Union and the Berlin Wall coming down, the files we obtained in Eastern Germany confirmed exactly what Joe McCarthy was accusing people of. We were infiltrated throughout the Truman administration. We had been infiltrated post World War II because Russia was an ally and we allowed people in.
This is different though. There, there’s. Even at that time, being a communist was a bad thing. It was the Red Scare going on, and you didn’t want to be labeled a communist, and his accusational finger was pointing at people, and there were denials, there were some people that said I was proud of that, but for the most part, they weren’t in the president’s cabinet.
In the Obama administration, all of
Gene Valentino: that changed. You are correct. It seems that in the more recent administration, Biden’s administration back to Barack, [00:31:00] the cast of characters around the president. We’re either of a Marxist leaning philosophy, funded by George Soros, supported, supporting a philosophy which didn’t care about the extension of our debt, the disinterest in protecting the American dollar as it sits against other currencies in the world.
So, what has happened that has caused, in your opinion, where is the breakdown? Is it at the presidential level, or is it at the subordinate level perpetrating these maybe deep state conspiracies that maybe the president didn’t know about? Which is it? Which president? Well, we’ll start with
Peter Bolten: Obama. Obama was very aware of what he was doing.
The public was not. His objectives were clearly laid out. He was a radical. He was [00:32:00] somebody who had been trained in Marxism throughout his career, and he wanted to push the United States towards that. There, there, there are key elements, the three major key elements in pushing a society or a country towards Marxism would be to 1.
Control the media, 2. Control their health care, and 3. Disarm the population. Disarming them eliminates a threat. Controlling their health care controls virtually everything in their life. And controlling the media, that’s obvious. Controlling the media, I’ll give you an example. There was a a reporter who a London office I had a friend who was in the Moscow office, this was back in the 70s, and the Russian newspaper, the national paper, is called Pravda.
Pravda translates to the truth. Really? And he had, yes, and you know, being a government publication in [00:33:00] communist Russia, the truth is what we say it is, and you must accept it. So he was asked a question, he said, how do the people in Moscow and in Russia view Pravda? And he said, well, they all know it’s lies and they know they’re lying to them and the ones lying to them know they know they’re lying to them.
But that’s not the point. The point is, they’re impressing on them, we’re lying to you and there’s nothing you can do about it. And that’s a very similar approach that Barack Obama took, just denying. That’s all you had to do. We’re not investigating conservative groups. We’re not pulling IRS records. We’re not disallowing 501Cs to raise money for my opponents.
Gene Valentino: keep your own doctor.
Peter Bolten: Well, that, that was the massive scam on Obamacare. Yes. But lying’s no big deal, and with a complicit [00:34:00] media, they’ll perpetuate the lie to you, and anybody who raises objections is labeled a conspiracy theorist. And, you know, over the last couple years, every conspiracy we see…
Ends up being true, so it’s no longer theory.
Gene Valentino: What, tell me about a doctor by the name of Dr. Ramon, Ramon Pharmaceuticals.
Peter Bolten: That’s a character in our book. A number of my characters can be directly related to real people. But some of them are composites of multiple people. And Dr. Ramon is a, a truth seeker.
Who he assists my direct action intelligence team in unraveling some of the things regarding the COVID pandemic, the vaccine produced to fight it, and the involvement of the World Economic Forum in it. The World [00:35:00] Economic Forum is not mentioned in my book. There are different entities. I’m very careful about not going directly at people.
There are liability issues and I don’t want to get into that, but it’s, it becomes an understandable scenario. Where you can say, oh, talk to Ramon. There’s somebody that sounds a lot like that that’s out there fighting for truth and justice in medicine as well. And many of my characters are built like that.
They’re composites of real figures to tell the story that I’m trying to tell.
Gene Valentino: I can’t help but understand how the transition seems so clear. They were outsiders like McCarthy, not welcomed into Congress and challenged. Now, a generation later becoming in Congress or in the. Offices of government or appointees.
And then we move to Trump and then we move to Biden. Has Obama’s [00:36:00] perpetration of a deep state philosophy continued in your opinion under Biden? Oh, absolutely. In what ways?
Peter Bolten: The, the regulatory state is a state that, that has far more power than we really understand. And only recently has it been challenged.
It’s been challenged both at the ATF alcohol, tobacco, and firearms level regarding the Second Amendment and the Bruin case, which went to the Supreme Court and declared that Second Amendment is a right. That you cannot take away from the citizens. And then there was a case of the EPA versus West Virginia.
that also went to the Supreme Court, and a decision there it said agencies don’t have the power to make law. And if agency regulations and rules have the full force and impact, including the ability to fine and imprison people for violating a regulation or rule, you don’t have that authority. [00:37:00] That’s left to Congress.
That was decided by the Supreme Court recently. So, all of these agencies cannot do what they’ve done for decades. And that is make up the rules and call them
Gene Valentino: laws. Stepping back just briefly for a second, footnote on that point. As you look at our operation in government, do you see that the third leg of the stool, our Justice Department, Has held the line to put some sobriety into some of the overzealous behavior of these agencies of government who did enact their own rules, penalties, and, and, and try to enforce law without the blessing of Congress.
You don’t see the Justice Department doing
Peter Bolten: that? I don’t see the Justice Department being a friend of the United States citizen. And there’s a history of the Justice Department [00:38:00] not being just. Does that come out in your book? Some of it does, yes. But we’ll, we’ll take Barack Obama’s well known Attorney General, Eric Holder.
Few people can tell you what Eric Holder did just before he was appointed Attorney General. He was a pro bono defender of Guantanamo Bay terrorists. Then was appointed by Obama and confirmed as our Attorney General. So you had a guy defending the terrorists that attacked us on 9 11. All of a sudden, hope and change came into office in 2009.
And the first person he appoints… I haters to ag is the same guy that’s defending the terrorists that attacked us
Gene Valentino: Time Out Patriot Act Obama’s era right after the bush. What did Obama do to perverse the Patriot Act?
Peter Bolten: Well the Patriot Act it it took away a lot of [00:39:00] privacy rights. So that we had an ability to
Gene Valentino: spy.
On our adversaries,
Peter Bolten: our foreign. And, and on ourselves. And on ourselves, because if you were arrested, whether you’re a US citizen or not, as a Patriot Act violator, you lost your constitutional rights. And there was a good, a good amount of support for it at that time, because we needed a sledgehammer to, to drive the tack now.
Okay. Yeah. No
Gene Valentino: good deed goes unpunished because the FISA came out of the Patriot Act. And look what happened with the abuse of Pfizer warrants.
Peter Bolten: Well, that’s, that’s what could have been predictably foreseen. When the Patriot Act became law, there were going to be abuses. It’s inevitable. Bureaucrats use the powers given to them by us.
So, as we progress through that, you see that… Throughout the Bush years, we primarily focused [00:40:00] overseas. We tried to focus on terrorism coming into the U. S. and, and stop it. But when Barack Obama took office, he turned those capabilities And we began looking for, for, for people to assign crimes to, as opposed to solving crimes to find the people who committed them.
Joe Biden’s taken it to a whole nother step and he has turned it against his political opponents. So it went from our enemies originally. To being turned against us domestically to now under Joe Biden being turned against Donald Trump and any other political enemy, he’s using his justice department and he’s using the IRS and he’s using all the agencies of the federal government.
Gene Valentino: And I resent the [00:41:00] fact that our government has no constitutional amendment that puts the pressure on each individual appointee and elected official of our government to be accountable to us, so that when they perpetrate these frauds on behalf of the president, the FBI director, the CIA director, the Department of Justice, Homeland Security, I could go on.
When they violate the law and then lie to us in our faces, and they think they get away with murder because the president was going to pardon them anyway, is to me the biggest perpetration of a shortcoming of our government. Not only must that individual suffer some personal consequences for lying to the American people.
But the person who told him to do it needs to suffer the consequences of it as well. That I propose through the special magistrate system that’s listed under the second [00:42:00] bill of rights, which you’ll find on www. genevalentino. com. And you look up one of the 11 articles the second bill of rights, I call it.
are 11 more amendments to the Constitution, and one of them in there is a description of what’s called the special, the Supreme Magistrates, and the Supreme Magistrates are not another leg of government, not more government, I want less government, not more government, but the Supreme Magistrates impose the penalties on the wrongdoers in government themselves, conflicts of interest, side dealing everything that’s related to the in.
This is a story about a man who’s been doing justice and self serving that makes a 100, 000 a year person in government 10 years later worth 10 million. How does that happen? It’s because of the side dealing and the perpetrations of fraud that occur. And the cooperation given to the cast of [00:43:00] characters who have a hidden agenda.
From a deep state source type of mentality that can afford to pay you to execute a position against people or situations, just like Letitia James is doing the prosecutor in New York against Donald Trump right now. How am I doing?
Peter Bolten: You’re, you’re on point. You’re on point. Is there anything
Gene Valentino: like
Peter Bolten: that in your book?
Gene Valentino: To the extent you want to talk about it, I don’t want to give the book away, but I want to, I want enough people to write us or call us to, and tease you to get, get in touch with Peter here because this book is phenomenal and I’d like to see him get it out there New York Times bestseller without having to worry about the New York Times.
Peter Bolten: Well, the story is around some richly developed characters who are members of an intelligence and direct action unit. It’s called, as a nickname, the [00:44:00] SAGE group. It’s the Open Source Intelligence Analysis Group. It kind of benign as far as the name goes, but they’re unknown within the military or intelligence community other than one element of J ss o C that they work with.
That’s joint Special Operations Command. And this is a counter-terrorism direct action unit that takes things into their own hands to solve things that the government is allowing to have that shouldn’t.
Gene Valentino: Is this an agency of government?
Peter Bolten: It is an agency of government, but it is a special access program that only a limited number of people, two senators, one who dies during the course of the novel, know about.
So there’s only one senator left from the original committee that gave them their charter, who knows of their existence, and… Fact
Gene Valentino: or fiction?
Peter Bolten: [00:45:00] This is fiction. This is all fiction. Okay. Okay, but you gotta write a compelling story to draw somebody in. And, you know from a fiction perspective, this agency is funded through a black budget.
They’re, they’re, their name, the Open Source Intelligence Analysis Group, is a cover, and what they do is right wrongs. They, they’re the white hats that most people in the United States now don’t think exist anymore. Everybody looks to the government as being evil.
Gene Valentino: Well, how could anybody in government now allow such an entity to exist?
Well, it’s gotta be under someone’s authority, control, and someone’s budget. No, it doesn’t. So is this fact
Peter Bolten: or fiction? Oh, this, this, this part of it is fiction, but something that, that I found very interesting, I didn’t know. [00:46:00] Joint Special Operations Command itself. That’s where you have your SEAL Team 6, Delta Force, 75th Rangers Regiment, the Intelligence Support Activity the 24th Special Tactics Squadron from the Air Force.
These are all elements, the most highly trained operators in the world. And I didn’t know until I talked to some of these guys. They don’t get paid by the Army. They don’t get paid by the Navy. SEAL Team 6 doesn’t get paid by the Navy. Delta doesn’t get paid by the Army. They get paid by JSOC’s black budget.
There’s a million ways to Sunday, as Adam Schiff or Chuck Schumer once said. They can screw with you if you screw with the intelligence agencies, that there’s also a million ways to hide large sums of money within black budgets in the government. So they do exist today. My concept is not farfetched at all, but it is a fictitious entity.
There’s [00:47:00] about 300 of them in the federal government as we
Gene Valentino: speak. Folks, we’re talking with Peter Bolton. He’s an entrepreneur, a businessman, came out of the insurance agency, came, was in New England and New Jersey, moved south to the Florida and specifically Pensacola. Pensacola. The West, as Vince Wibbs, our auto dealer here in town, once said, Welcome to Pensacola.
Western Gate to the Sunshine State. Where thousands live the way millions wish we could. Shh, don’t tell anybody. We’re going
Peter Bolten: to keep this
Gene Valentino: us. This is a really a wonderful place we live in here. The taxes are right. The economy’s right. The friendships are great. And you know what I noticed? This red state and this way of life, everyone’s smiling.
Everyone’s a little happier. Interest rates just went up today. Biden’s polls are at an all time low, but everyone, for some reason, is just [00:48:00] decent and happy with each other. It reflects an American spirit that I’m so proud of. That I think we’ve lost in certain blue states in this nation. The blue states, the states that were demanding we defund the police.
Where are these immigrants now? And what are they doing to those politicians? They’re forcing those politicians to demand money from the federal government. The same impotent Federal government that was unable to do anything for you about defunding the police and the Black Lives Matter group and the disenfranchisement of your voice at public meetings.
Your voice and your right to free speech. Thank God for the internet and social media. While some of it controls us and also demand quashes our ability to be truly open and transparent. There are some platforms out [00:49:00] there still today that allow you to get the message out. Now we talked about the pharmaceuticals before.
There’s one or two platforms I’m not going to mention that would probably put the kibosh on this broadcast because of that. My goal is to make sure that a book like his reveals those shortcomings to you, to convince the new wave of elected officials to come in and right the wrong on public speech. You know, Peter, just to digress a second, it’s not a digression, it’s really a fact.
I used to be the owner of Cellular One, a cellular phone company for most of the Central Valley of California. It was a network nationwide, but I was president for a region in California, and I had the right to own a utility and become the owner of a telephone company because the federal government stepped in and said hey AT& T, you’ve got way too much of a monopoly.
And control here. [00:50:00] We’ve got to dilute your authority and control and give it back to the people. That’s what needs to happen here again. The question is do we have an elected branch of government that will legislate it or must it appear in court just like it did before Judge Green back in the 1980s to break up Ma Bell AT& T to all of the baby bells that existed around the nation.
A topic alleged on face is unrelated to everything you’re talking about, Peter. But it’s not. It’s the overreach of government controlling your way of life, the good intentions of government through the Patriot Act you mentioned earlier, that put the kibosh on foreign adversaries. And was supposed to go after dissidents within the nation to stop wrongdoing that led up, that, that led [00:51:00] up to the 9 11 attack.
But what happened with bad players in government is we saw a transition of the use of that power to nefarious purpose, where they are in, in intrusion into your privacy, into your way of life. Economically and otherwise, became, became a, a, a, a deep state perversion, a cult of bad behavior that is affecting now and drawing closer to the reality a socialistic Marxist way of life.
And guys like Peter Bolton writing a book hopefully reveals some of these intelligence shortcomings that cause you to step up to make sure the next elected official. Kicks ass and rights this wrong on our nation’s government. What do you say to that? Well, that’s a lot
Peter Bolten: to digest . It is, but your, [00:52:00] your analogy to the at and t and the baby bells, we already have that in the Constitution.
It’s called Washington, DC. And the 50 individual states. They weren’t 50 at the time it was written, but the Constitution says that whatever is not constitutionally assigned to the federal government to do on behalf of the citizens is left to be done or decided by the states. Very good. We’ve already broken it up.
It’s just not being adhered to.
Gene Valentino: Let me hit you with another idea. It may be another book, but it’s an interesting idea. We’d look at tens of thousands of people crossing the border every week. We look at millions, 12 to 14 million is a number I’ve heard about illegal immigrants now in the nation that have penetrated the far reaches of our country.
We look at a system that’s broken because the local [00:53:00] states can’t handle it, though. It’s a give and take, isn’t it? You just said the Constitution has it the power residing in the states for a reason. Until they can’t handle it, then they whine and come back to the federal government to solve the problem.
In this case, the states can’t handle what they asked for. They wanted to be sanctuary cities. And they can’t handle it. Help me out, Uncle Sam. I need help because I made a pretty strong pitch about wanting to be a nice guy. We couldn’t handle 43 people in Martha’s Vineyard and we had to whine and cry and deport them.
And now we’re expecting the federal government to solve the problem. And guys like Kevin McCarthy, working against this tsunami of insanity. It’s ousted fairly or unfairly, was making headway at least in trying to get some things done to save this nation. Some not all of his amendments were going through.[00:54:00]
To me, brings into balance, brings into merit the, the, the, this, to me, when I read your book, it’s like, these are the thoughts in the background in my brain going on, how does your book stir the pot with the citizenry? Cause them to step up. And wanna make some dynamic changes in this nation. We’ve got about two minutes left.
How would you, how would you think this book will help our nation?
Peter Bolten: Well, you, you hit on the federal government and the state’s not liking what they’ve asked for, and now they’re getting it full face and they’re not happy. It’s the federal government’s responsibility to defend our borders, not the states.
They’ve failed us there. We are not a country without borders. And border enforcement no country in the world manages their borders the way President Biden is right now. Which is not managing them at all. But my book, the story… I think I said it before, but [00:55:00] we’re so pissed off with the way things are, and we’re so upset with the way we’re seeing the government being managed from D.
C. and locally. People need hope. People need to know there are some good guys out there. People need to know there are white hats. There’s you know, somebody on a white horse that’s willing to come to your rescue. Somebody’s making that effort and I think that not Obama’s hope and change because that would be hope we can change things for the worse.
I’m talking about hope that they’re not all evil in D. C. and somebody’s still on our side, the American citizen.
Gene Valentino: What’s it going to take? I hear your next book might have something to do with revenge. Retribution. You need to retaliate against this force that’s building though. There’s a force building though.
Peter Bolten: These, these are parts of fictional storylines and I, I mentioned Clancy, I mentioned Mishner, but if you’ve ever read Vince Flynn or Jack Carr, [00:56:00] there’s direct action, there’s blood, people get killed. It’s exciting stuff. And when you’re wronged, oftentimes revenge is what’s required and that’s what makes a great story, makes it exciting.
It makes folks want to turn the page when you’re done by the next in the series. And that’s what I’m hoping
Gene Valentino: for. The next in the series is interesting. This series is called Deo e Patria of God and Country. The author to my right, Peter Bolton from Pensacola, Florida. Let’s help him get this published nationwide.
We may try to do something on the website where we just order online the heck with these. Publishers who knows what they’re all about, but let’s get, find a marketing effort to get your book out worldwide as soon as possible. You up for that? Absolutely. Hey, before I go, wide shot here, David, what do you think of my new shoes here, huh?
Peter Bolten: They look like somebody named Mike made them. A guy by
Gene Valentino: the name of Mike made them. These are[00:57:00] my wife handed these to me just before the show. These are MyPillow slippers. Now, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into. But I love these slippers. They are comfortable as long as they’re below the shot so I don’t take away from the content of this show.
MyPillow is a great company. They’re going to be sponsoring with us and I’m proud to be promoting their product. It’s really very good. We use their products and more on MyPillow coming up.
Peter Bolten: Mike Lindell has risked everything to do the right thing and I respect the man
Gene Valentino: for it. Hey. That ties in perfectly to our theme today.
There’s a guy who stood up and defend America, and he had the dark state, he had the deep state command. He got pulled over, he got his cell phone taken from him, he got nixed by some people that are trying to take him down. And he’s still holding strong. God bless you, Mike, Michael Lindell from [00:58:00] MyPillow.
We’ll talk more about him in the upcoming episodes and proud to be a sponsor of his sponsoring his products. Oh. Any final thoughts?
Peter Bolten: Thank you very much for giving me a platform to speak about my work and hopefully get this project off the ground.
Gene Valentino: Deo e Patre by Peter Bolton. Thank you for joining us today.
We’re going to get this book out. We got to get this book out. This book’s good. It’s a reflection of reality, but not necessarily correlated with reality. Thank you. Is that, is that a good way of saying it? That’s a good way of saying it. Okay. Thank you for being with us today. Thank you. And thank you for being with us today on another episode of Gene Valentino’s Grassroots Truthcast.
See you again soon.
Narrator: Thanks for joining us for Gene Valentino’s Grassroots Truthcast. Be sure to like and subscribe and God bless America.[00:59:00]
