2019 – An Initiative for "Protecting Extraordinary Technology"

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has had an unconstitutional and illegal “Berlin Wall” for decades to prevent extraordinary technologies from entering the marketplace. Such technologies included:

  

  • Anti-global warming devices
  • A motor or power plant, which has exceptionally high, non-polluting, non-hazardous, and sustained energy output relative to input
  • Prevention or curing of diseases such as cancer, AIDS/HIV, Alzheimer's, etc.
  • Methods or compositions for prolonging life or preventing aging
  • Treatments to enhance intelligence


To break through this wall, a draft proposed ballot initiative was filed at the Denver City and County Building on February 13, 2019.  The Denver City Attorney's Office approved the draft ordinance text, on March 7, for use on a petition. The initiative idea was first proposed in POWER UP. 


This "Executive Order of the People" proposes inventing a new patent office in the City and County of Denver as a model for other counties and states. If enacted by the voters or separately by the Denver City Council,  or by the Mayor of Denver through an Executive Order, it would require the City and County of Denver to:

  

1. "Provide expedited issuance of patents for extraordinary technology, giving highest priority, without being a prerequisite, to categories of patent applications that were, or continue to be, unfairly or illegally obstructed or delayed by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Funding for processing patent applications and issuing patents shall be obtained through application fees, or otherwise, as determined by the City and County of Denver.


2. Affirm, through a public proclamation and general policy, the legality of research, development, manufacturing, marketing, sale, possession, and use of extraordinary technology, regardless of patenting status"


Achieving these objectives, even within Denver, would be the first step in tearing down the entire wall and releasing suppressed life-saving and planet-saving technologies to the world!

SUMMARY OF BALLOT INITIATIVES DRAFTED BUT NOT ON THE BALLOT:

2000 – Addressing Lying by Politicians [Drafted December 2000]

  • All powers of every branch and every level of government are derived from the power of the People. The proposed law would require that when any elected or appointed government official, or their representative, addresses the court of public opinion on matters of public policy, they are addressing the highest court in the nation and are therefore under oath to tell the truth or be subject to prosecution and punishment for perjury or contempt of court.

2000 – Truth in Labeling for Fake News [Drafted December 2000]

  • Information that is deceptive, fabricated, and blatantly false, is not only useless but also destructive with respect to accomplishing our goals as individuals and a society. This proposed ordinance would make it unlawful for any "news" source to sell, give, deliver, furnish or broadcast any fake news without labeling it as false or fake.

2000 – State Budgeting [Submitted to the Colorado State Legislature and later withdrawn]

  • A proposed state law, "To require that a Perfect Budget Board…determine whether any proposed program for which a budget request is made, is efficacious or cost-effective according to peer-reviewed scientific journals, in achieving the goal of the requesting department, agency, or institution."
