About Me and My Pseudonym


Amo Probos is the motto of my clan, Clan Blair, and is generally translated from the Latin as "loves virtue".

I am an eighth generation American and damn sure I am not going to meet my Ancestors without living up to their standards of honor and patriotism. For me, that means following the injunction of one of them, founding father George Mason, who said in his last Will and Testament:
I recommend it to my sons from my own experience in life, to prefer the happiness of independence and a private station to the troubles and vexations of publick business, but if either their own inclinations or the necessity of the times should engage them in public affairs, I charge them on a father's blessing never to let the motives of private interest or ambition induce them to betray, nor the terrors of poverty and disgrace, or the fear of danger or of death, deter them from asserting the liberty of their country and endeavoring to transmit to their posterity those sacred rights to which themselves were born.
Clear to me is that “those sacred rights” are being stripped from us daily and hence I have been called by ancient voices to “assert the liberty” of this Country for my children's sake.

Regarding the advice of your grand ancestor; it brings to mind what the heroine said to Nickolas Cage in National Treasure; "No one talks like that anymore." Meaning that no one talks as they should talk anymore because we are all asleep or narcotized by endless diversions and indulgences.

I wish I had such a quote from one of my American ancestors, -the Marquis de la Porte, -companion of the Marquis de la Fayette, but at least I have the rebellious writings and exposes of his son in law who went against the entire American medical establishment by focusing on natural remedies instead of elixirs from labs. He wrote things that sound just like things that I just recently wrote before coming across his writing. Clearly, the war against self-serving, ensconced power structures isn't something new, and now it's our turn to engage the enemies of freedom of thought and truth and the rule of law. Adrien Nash

This is a time of standing your ground, even if you find yourself alone. History always corrects the lies, the bias, and the agendas of those who are intent on a life of falsity and cheating.
