FMI Obtains Declassified CIA Document Regarding Rhodesia's Ian Smith

On May 16, 2016, the Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, Inc., sought records the Central Intelligence Agency has about Rhodesia's Ian Smith, as well as any records pertaining to United States involvement with the Rhodesian Bush War (1964-1979).

On July 27, 2017, the CIA declassified a one-page document which provides a brief biography of the "leading personalities" of Rhodesia.  The CIA describes Smith as the "Son of an early settler, a gentleman farmer, RAF [Royal Air Force] pilot and war hero" who "is the personification of qualities held in high esteem by most white Rhodesians."  The CIA notes that Smith was "Friendly, straightforward, unexcitable, self-assured [and] firmly wedded to a sense of values he would not think of changing."  Smith, the CIA notes, "entered politics in 1948 * * * on the strength of his anti-Communist views[.]"

Daily Stormer Lawsuit Update: SPLC Pursuing Service By Publication

The Southern Poverty Law Center recently filed a motion to extend the expiration of the summons for the Tanya Gersh v. Andrew Anglin lawsuit, which is currently pending in the United States District Court for the District of Montana.

What is interesting to note about the SPLC's motion is that instead of using a process server to personally serve Anglin the summons and complaint, the SPLC filed a miscellaneous action at the State of Ohio's Common Pleas Court for Franklin County and is attempting to serve Anglin in a manner that is permitted by the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure:  the court clerk attempts service on the defendant via certified mail, and if that fails, the court clerk will serve the defendant via First Class mail and follow-up with service by publication in a newspaper.

The Ohio case was assigned to Judge David E. Cain and was assigned Case No. 17-MS-000343.  The records for the Ohio case are easily accessible online if one does a cursory search.  The case was filed on May 18, 2017.

FMI to Financially Support “Unite the Right Free Speech Rally”

On August 12, 2017, between noon and 5 p.m., hundreds of Alt-Right activists are planning to hold a “Unite the Right Free Speech Rally” at Lee Park of Charlottesville, Virginia, which is being organized by Jason KesslerThe Facebook group for the event already has—as of July 17—464 Alt-Right activists who are committed to attending it and another 914 who are interested in participating.

The last time the Alt-Right showed up at Lee Park, it was with torches and the Fake News media went nuts.  For the last event, it was not publicly advertised in advance of it so as to prevent freedom-hating communists from disrupting the peaceful demonstration in defense of free speech rights.  This time, the Alt-Right is showing up in force and appears to not care whether Antifa thugs are there as well—hence the advance public notice of the forthcoming rally.  The who’s who of the American Alt-Right movement are expected to be in attendance.

Generous donors of the Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, Inc., are eager to help Alt-Right activists from throughout the United States to attend the upcoming Lee Park event.  Please contact FMI if you are in need of financial assistance to get a group of activists to the rally.

If you are unable to attend the Unite the Right Free Speech Rally but wish to financially support people who would like to go, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to FMI so that funds can be distributed to grassroots activists who legitimately need it for transportations or lodging.

Activists who receive financial support from FMI are to support the right of free speech and other rights as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and are not to engage in partisan political activism of any kind.
