Don's Passing
The Don Harkins Memorial
Where liberty is, there is my country. -Benjamin Franklin
Don Harkins 1963 - 2009

Submitted by Ingri Cassel on Sat, Sep 19, 2009

Don Harkins passed away September 19th, 2009 at 4:44 A.M. He was with me, his beloved wife, almost constantly throughout the night along with our dear friend Sadie. Don was sensing that his life was fading and simply didn't have the strength necessary to recover. We prayed together throughout the night and made him as comfortable as possible, praying for guidance and strength. He was extremely touched by the outpouring of love and prayers for his recovery both locally and throughout the country. Don chose not to go to the hospital a third time since he was upset by the doctors aggressive "therapy" for his AML. He had a near death experience in the hospital in which he met his Creator and chose to come back to have this time with me in our space of love. Don was a source of inspiration for hundreds, always living his life according to his conscience as he disseminated truthful information to all who crossed his path. He will be missed by all of us who relished his wisdom, passion, humor and determined, energetic spirit. We are planning a celebration of Don's life for next Saturday. We are currently seeking a venue that will hold 300 people. If you want to be notified of the time and place for the celebration of Don's life, please keep checking this site for updates, or click here to email me with the subject - "In Memory of Don Harkins".

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love, prayers, and support,

Ingri Cassel-Harkins

Dear Ingri, I just learned of Don's passing while connecting a student with the VacLib site, am stunned. I recall meeting you and Don at Alan Yurko's hearing in Florida. I was deeply impressed by Don's piercing focus balanced with resilient humor as he observed and noted the proceedings, likewise his commitment that truth be made known. He was very much the embodiment of "the facts are friendly" and compassionate mindfulness, He exuded a vitality that seemed to be tapped into the source of life itself, independent of his physical body, his vessel to carry it..

I grieve at his untimely departure, am grateful that I got to know him however briefly, and trust somehow that his spirit will serve to strengthen us all to carry on his good works.

We're now in NW Ohio, close to I- 80 and 90. If you are ever in this area, you have a place to touch down. Just show up at our door. Meanwhile I hold you in loving, friendly thoughts. Karen Lyke

 Hello from Ohio,
I have frequented from time to time to the Idaho Observer website.  I must say that Don's Newspaper is one of the places I've come to for many years and has taught me much of what I know today.  
I wish I would've had privilege to know Don and draw straight from his wisdom. It might not have taken me so long to get the knowledge I have today then...haha.  

But I feel like I know him better than before after reading more about him on his memorial site...I'll take that as a blessing....:) Thank you Don! R.I.P. My prayers and sympathy go to his family.
For anybody who may be interested I dedicated a post on my blog, The Republic of Shrewd Exposure to Don on Thursday Nov. 5th 2009.

Thanks Don, from a friend in Ohio,

"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty."  — Thomas Jefferson

Don was an inspiration to, and advocate for, so many - of that there can be no doubt. He was a lover, gatherer and distributor of truth...who started many a brushfire in the minds of his readers and listeners.

Thank you Don - for your tireless efforts in the cause of freedom and the battle for Liberty - Thank you for being who you were born to be!

In Tribute to and Remembrance of Don Harkins

Submitted by David R. Kimball on Sat, Oct 03, 2009

 I was very sad to hear about this loss - to all of us - of a major truth-sayer, one of the true heroes of our times.

I began subscribing to the Idaho Observer some years ago, recognizing it as one of the few real newspapers still published in America. Occasionally, I would call the newspaper to check on an issue or place an order, and gradually got to know Don and Ingri through these calls.

In 2005, Don wrote me a personal letter thanking me for the work I had done in Sacramento in helping to see that a Resolution in opposition to the Patriot Act was passed by the Sacramento City Council . I posted Don’s inspiring letter on my wall and it remains there today.

About three years ago, at a 9/11 Truth conference in Chicago I saw a stack of Idaho Observers on a table in an open area of the hotel where the conference was being held. I struck up a conversation with the lady at the table, and was happy to learn that I was speaking with Ingri Cassel, who I recalled from our phone conversations. A few moments later, a pleasant-appearing man approached; we introduced ourselves, and sure enough, it was Don Harkins! We all then shared the joy of actually meeting one another face-to-face, and Don and I engaged in a brief and stimulating conversation, sharing ideas and creative concepts.

Meeting Don and Ingri on this occasion is for me a treasured memory. I have described this meeting many times to friends, mentioning the special warmth, understanding and inspiration that Don and Ingri projected in person.

Every month I looked forward to reading Don’s observations in his editorials and articles, and will sincerely miss his commentary. Don told it as he saw it - forthrightly and courageously. He was a man of integrity, committed to the truth and - caring deeply about the human condition - he shared his deep knowledge and insights, borne of much research, with many others. He will always be an inspiration to those of us who carry on this important work.

Thoughts and prayers are with you, Ingri.

Remembering the smile

Submitted by Joan Mootry on Fri, Oct 02, 2009

Through the years that I've known Don Harkins, every time that I would think of him (usually to call and ask his advice) I would get a smile in my mind just picturing his face. What joy, enthusiasm and passion it always expressed. Talk about the window into a bright and extraordinary soul!  He shined with so much light that it permanently warms all who were fortunate enough to have experienced the glow. What a gift to leave for us. May Ingri take comfort in knowing that her special place in Don's heart contributed to that glow, and we are grateful for her love.

Take care, my friend!

A Tribute Of Honor To Don

Submitted by Anonymous on Tue, Sep 29, 2009
After living what I felt was a 'decent' life, time on earth came to an end.

The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a Court of Judgment.

The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.

As I looked around I saw the 'prosecutor.'

Though of marvelous stature and eloquent clothed he was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil figure I have ever seen.

I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, kind and gentle looking, clean bearded gentlmen whose appearance seemed warm and friendly, yet so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him.

The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing Golden robes.

He commanded an awesome presence of peace and tranquility as He moved across the room I couldn't take my eyes off of Him.

As He took placement behind the bench, He said, 'Let us begin.'

The prosecutor rose and said,

'My name is Satan and I am here to show Honorable Creator why this man belongs in hell.'

He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and In the past when I cheated others, Satan told of other horrible Perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the further down in my chair I sank.

I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own Attorney; as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about.

As upset as I was at Satan for bringing to light all these transgressions and evil I had done, I became aware I became equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently Offering no forum of defense, Nada a Word.

I know I had been guilty of those things, but had I not done some good in my life - couldn't that at least equal out some or part of the harm I'd done?

Satan finished with a fury of fire & brimstone and said, 'This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a spirit nor a person who can prove otherwise.'

When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection and loud rantings of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward.

As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty.

I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior. He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, 'Hi, Dad,' and turned to address the court.

'Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wage of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished.'

Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, 'However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, therefore & wherefore he is Mine.'

My Lord continued with, ‘His name is written in the Book of Life, and no one can snatch him from Me.’

Satan still fails not understand, even now. This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy.'

As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, 'There is nothing else that needs to be done.'

'I've done it all.'

The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed from His lips..

'This man is free.'

The penalty for him has already been paid in full.

'Case dismissed.'

As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, 'I won't give up, I won’t give up, I will win, I will win the next one.' I asked Jesus as He gave me instructions where to go next, 'Have you ever lost a case?'

Christ lovingly smiled and said, 'Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you,

~Paid In Full~

Stop telling God how big your storm is. “Instead, tell the storm how big your God is!”

Now that's what I'm talking about!!
Life is too short to awake with regrets. Love those who treat you right, Love those who share the night, pray for the ones who don't, and pray for those who won’t. “Have a wonderful Blessed Day” seek blessing, Life with Honor and Liberty; seek your way whilst honoring one of our own; a freedom fighter, Truth Provider, a leader with mercy. Don traded in his ink and parchment for the spirit of eternal life, continuing to fight evil; now Don fights with great spirits of light whilst watching over his soul mate from heavens gate.

I Honor “Don Harkins, Editor, Author, Researcher, Truth Seeker, Truth Provider” for few knew the man, the lover, the caretaker of the word as best his soul mate. May God, the Father, enjoy the talent and love Don gave to all he touched with his unrelenting respect, mercy and his love for fellow Citizens seeking Honor and Justice in our Class and our individual circles amassed, yet we must continue seeking lives with Liberty, happiness, Truth and Justice, free of Government Tyranny, least we forget, Don was of the few, the proud & the Brave. Least we forget “Don Harkin”

Semper Fi, Don, Peace ’n Love, till our light shines together in the night

Lost a good friend

Submitted by MTPorcupine3 on Mon, Sep 28, 2009

I had the joy, privilege and honour of befriending Don and Ingri whilst I was still living in Montana. I interviewed them both for my TV show. See the interviews here to get an idea of what the world is missing:


Fri, 25 September, 2009 - 18:18
Don Harkins and his wife, Ingri, were and are our friends, and fellow soldiers in the wars of government injustices. I remember Don telling me (more than once) that he believed it was too late for our Idaho Judicial Accountability Initiative (IJAA was to hold judges accountable when they broke the law from the bench and caused harm), yet he actively promoted it from 2000 through 2006 in the IO. In one campaign Don, Ingri, myself and friends Vicki and Scott did a 'tour across Idaho' to get the word out about IJAA. Even when things went wrong with the tour schedule and later a mechanical problem (and attitudes (LOL!), Don's lightheartedness and honest laughter made (for me), the trip a joy. I will miss my friend, and our sharing news, laughter and sadness where we both agreed (unless God intervened), our nation was on a non-stop downward spiril, and sadly most of the people still didn't care and didn't want to be educated either. As I sat yesterday, reading old 'Observers' I commented to my husband, Dale, that for such a little guy (Don was short like me), he filled some mighty-big shoes; and whoever took up the editorial duties of the IO had a huge amount of work ahead. His presence filled up a room and he was so darn intelligent and yet so simple, honest and real. You didn't have to be a genius to talk to Don; but if you were, he could very well keep up. Dale looked at me and said "there was nothing little about Don Harkins, and I will miss him'. Dale is so right, and anyone who knew Don knows that is true. Don loved digging for truth, and I wonder what he is up to now (now that he has all the answers to the "who done its" and other mysteries of this life). I hope he's kicking back, relaxing under a tree, reading a book or having a thought-provoking conversation with Jesus. We will see Don again one day, and in the meantime want to say "Don, we are grateful for the privilege of knowing you and Ingri. We will keep her and your 'kids' in our prayers. God blessed us when He allowed us to know you; it has been an honor to call you our friend."
With love, Rose and Dale

There are those who, when confronted with the ills of the world, pretend not to see.

Don was not one of them.

There are those who, when seeing a problem, prefer not to get involved.

Don was not one of them.

There are those who, not understanding, make no effort to understand.

Don was not one of them.

There are those who, involved with their own persuits, grant no time to the common good.

Don was not one of them.


There are those who,

Will stand and be counted.

Will use every means at their disposal . . .

To promote freedom, justice, & liberty.

To promote good over evil.

To enlighten the citizenry.

To ensure civil responsibility.

To preserve our society.

Don WAS one of them.

The definition of a patriot, after all, is: "One who sets aside his personal agendae for the good of his country".

He will be missed.

Godspeed Don Harkins!

Don' s essay Slavery and the Eight Veils
Submitted by jrhiller on Mon, Sep 28, 2009
It is an honor to have known Don. His writing, editing, and presence and conversations with him have been a significant influence on my own thinking.
Here is a brilliant essay by Don which gives a profound overview of the larger conundrums of life that we are all puzzling our way through.

From the December 2001 Idaho Observer:

Slavery and the eight veils
by Don Harkins
Over the last several years I have evolved and discarded several theories in an attempt to explain why it is that most people cannot see truth -- even when it smacks them in the face. Those of us who can see “the conspiracy” have participated in countless conversations amongst ourselves that address the frustration of most peoples' inability to comprehend the extremely well-documented arguments which we use to describe the process of our collective enslavement and exploitation. The most common explanation to be arrived at is that most people just “don't want to see” what is really going on.

Extremely evil men and women who make up the world's power-elite have cleverly cultivated a virtual pasture so grass green that few people seldom, if ever, bother to look up from where they are grazing long enough to notice the brightly colored tags stapled to their ears.

The same people who cannot see their enslavement for the pasture grass have a tendency to view as insane “conspiracy theorists” those of us who can see the past the farm and into the parlor of his feudal lordship's castle. Finally, I understand why.

It's not that those who don't see that their freedom is vanishing under the leadership of the power-elite “don't want to see it” -- they simply can't see what is happening to them because of the unpierced veils that block their view.

All human endeavors are a filtration process. Sports is one of the best examples. We play specific sports until we get kicked off the playground. The pro athletes we pay big bucks to watch just never got kicked off the playground. Where millions of kids play little league each spring, they are filtered out until there are about 50 guys who go to the World Series in October. Behind the first veil: There are over six billion people on the planet. Most of them live and die without having seriously contemplated anything other than what it takes to keep their lives together. Ninety percent of all humanity will live and die without having pierced the first veil.

The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, be active and have an opinion. Our opinions are shaped by the physical world around us; we have a tendency to accept that government officials, network media personalities and other “experts” are voices of authority. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the second veil.

The second veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the second veil to explore the world of history, the relationship between man and government and the meaning of self-government through constitutional and common law. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the third veil.

The third veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the third veil to find that the resources of the world, including people, are controlled by extremely wealthy and powerful families whose incorporated old world assets have, with modern extortion strategies, become the foundation upon which the world's economy is currently indebted. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fourth veil.

The fourth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the fourth veil to discover the Illuminati, Freemasonry and the other secret societies. These societies use symbols and perform ceremonies that perpetuate the generational transfers of arcane knowledge that is used to keep the ordinary people in political, economic and spiritual bondage to the oldest bloodlines on earth. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fifth veil.

The fifth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the fifth veil to learn that the secret societies are so far advanced technologically that time travel and interstellar communications have no boundaries and controlling the actions of people is what their members do as offhandedly as we tell our children when they must go to bed. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the sixth veil.

The sixth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the sixth veil where the dragons and lizards and aliens we thought were the fictional monsters of childhood literature are real and are the controlling forces behind the secret societies. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without piercing the seventh veil.

The seventh veil: I do not know what is behind the seventh veil. I think it is where your soul is evolved to the point you can exist on earth and be the man Ghandi was, or the woman Peace Pilgrim was-people so enlightened they brighten the world around them no matter what.

The eighth veil? Piercing the eighth veil probably reveals God and the pure energy that is the life force in all living things-which are, I think, one and the same.

If my math is accurate there are only about 60,000 people on the planet who have pierced the sixth veil. The irony here is too incredible: Those who are stuck behind veils one through five have little choice but to view the people who have pierced the veils beyond them as insane. With each veil pierced, exponentially shrinking numbers of increasingly enlightened people are deemed insane by exponentially increasing masses of decreasingly enlightened people.

Adding to the irony, the harder a “sixth or better veiler” tries to explain what he is able to see to those who can't, the more insane he appears to them.

Our enemy, the state
Behind the first two veils we find the great majority of people on the planet. They are tools of the state: Second veilers are the gullible voters whose ignorance justify the actions of politicians who send first veilers off to die in foreign lands as cannon fodder -- their combined stations in life are to believe that the self-serving machinations of the power-elite are matters of national security worth dying for.

Third, fourth, fifth and sixth veilers are of increasing liability to the state because of their decreasing ability to be used as tools to consolidate power and wealth of the many into the hands of the power-elite. It is common for these people to sacrifice more of their relationships with friends and family, their professional careers and personal freedom with each veil they pierce. Albert Jay Nock (1870-1945), author of “Our Enemy, the State” (1935), explained what happens to those who find the seventh and eighth veils: “What was the best that the state could find to do with an actual Socrates and an actual Jesus when it had them? Merely to poison one and crucify the other, for no reason but that they were too intolerably embarrassing to be allowed to live any longer.”

And so now we know that it's not that our countrymen are so committed to their lives that, “they don't want to see,” the mechanisms of their enslavement and exploitation. They simply “can't see” it as surely as I cannot see what's on the other side of a closed curtain.

The purpose of this essay is threefold: To help the handful of people in the latter veils to understand why the masses have little choice but to interpret their clarity as insanity; 2. To help people behind the first two veils understand that living, breathing and thinking are just the beginning and; 3. Show people that the greatest adventure of our life is behind the next veil because that is just one less veil between ourselves and God.

Update 8 - Don's Journey to Hell and Back
Submitted by Ingri Cassel on Wed, Sep 16, 2009

To everyone following Don Harkins journey to recovery, I simply cannot tell you how much your love, compassion and prayers of support for his journey back to life has been for both of us. The main reason I couldn't maintain the updates was the fact that I really needed to stay focused on the task at hand - removing Don from the clutches of the Devil himself. There is also much more to this drama since in the process of saving his life, he literally should have been dead. I was struggling with lack of control of what was being done to my beloved and feeling very desperate at times, seeking a transfer to ANY other hospital while Don was still in critical condition. There are also many heinous "errors" that Leah and Bill Deagle caught when I was finally able to get medical records out to them (four days worth) on the 14th. Leah told me much more after her visit to ICU on the 10th - I am still reeling in disbelief. Don was also extremely disempowered. Although we arrived on Sept. 5th with Power of Attorney for Don, the oncologist on duty refused to treat unless he was able to make all medical decisions (we changed the POA that afternoon and got Don to sign it just before he could no longer sign it...) At that time, Don literally was So sick that we compromised in order to save his life. That night he was barely hanging on... it took five hours after arrival to put him in a bed in ICU.

Don got his first good night sleep on the evening of the 13th and has had extremely lucid dreams since then. The first item we addressed was that he was to eat NO hospital food. The next step was on Tuesday morning when he refused platelets and a blood transfusion. After that was refusal of the saline and potassium drips (produced in fluoridated cities...) By Tuesday, his oncologist was wanting to speak with me. He had been absent the 10th through the 13th when his partner stopped the chemo since he would have lost his kidneys if they hadn't stopped it...

We met in the afternoon in his oncology office. This is the ONLY meeting we had regarding Don's care - there was no "plan" and no communication with me or Don regarding his care other than crisis management. If he died, so be it. If he lived, then it is by the grace of God. Although the nurses were very kind to Don, they simply followed the orders of the doctors. Anyhow, Don's oncologist explained to me, our daughter and a friend/witness that if Don is refusing treatment, he will need to leave. He stressed how sick Don was and showed us the results of the MRI they forced on him Saturday night (Don said an MRI is pure HELL.) The doctor was very matter of fact about lesions in Don's brain although he couldn't tell us whether they were historical (scarring from the M5 monoblastic leukemia - a subtype of AML) or active. (His partner had told me Saturday night that I should think about radiating his brain since the chemo doesn't seem to reach the brain tissue!) The meeting ended with an extremely dire prognosis and the offer to transfer him to the oncology group in Spokane and to another hospital. I told him we were looking into going to Mexico to a hospital that does a combo of alternative and allopathic methods. He countered with the urgency of doing this right away - within 24 hours.

Luckily we had a very powerful prayer circle on Saturday night after the doctor (our doctor's partner) had called with the results of his MRI - this energy stabilized me to be able to get centered better and not act from a space of fear (or at least not as much! :-) Don had told me this same day that he wanted to leave - it was time. By then, I agreed but felt a bit nervous doing this suddenly. Well, by this morning we had decided I would be picking him up and and taking him out of there. I had one condition - that he see our naturopath nearby for a total assessment and protocol as the first stop after the hospital and on the way home, and then to a safe healing place. This morning he had the catheter removed and the two pique (sp?) lines. Praise Yahweh! His two doctors - oncologist and infectious disease - also met with him this morning. They questioned his mental condition regarding wanting to be discharged against medical advice and suggested a psych evaluation. Don couldn't believe they would pull this one. Thankfully, he passed all their "questions" - basic math and today's date, etc. Luckily, my sister and a dear friend were there since I was traveling and picking up things he needed for the journey. How thankful we have been to have witnesses around us! :-)

Although Don's journey is far from over, he is recovering quite well. He is on bed rest, quiet and a strict regimen - which will be more in full swing tomorrow. He will not be having any visitors while he is recovering, or phone calls. He really needs plenty of space to heal and process his experience. Please KNOW that your prayers absolutely made a world of difference. He is a transformed man and an amazing partner for me. I am so proud to be his wife and stand by him during his healing journey. Although I want to be with him daily, we all felt it was best to distance him from The Idaho Observer and VacLib work to enable him space to recover. We will keep you posted. It will not necessarily be easy even now since he has much detoxing to do just from all the drugs he was given. But just having him off the drugs for 36 hours has made a world of difference. And he is able to truly sleep and have the peace and quiet necessary for all healing to take place. Trust me - Don will be sharing his spiritual journey, his insights and new found wisdom - all due to this experience - in the future so please be patient - this story truly must be told.

With Love, Extreme Gratitude, and Compassion,
