Private Membership Associations Explained

Mike Colomb spoke to a highly engaged STFF audience Monday 7/25/2022 via video conferencing. Mike is the founder of His is know for his expertise with private membership associations (PMA’s). He had tried to start a grocery store, but local regulatory requirements for parking and bike paths and more that kept shifting would have cost him over a million. By making his grocery store a PMA instead, something not open to the public but only to those who signed agreements, he was not subject the harassment of local government tyrants and they’ve been thriving.

Wake Up Call from Denmark

It may seem difficult in our small communities, wondering what we can do. Let the actions of these brave souls from around the world that gathered and spoke in Denmark against the mask mandates and the so-called vaccine and the rest of the globalist “Great Reset” agenda. It also shows people bravely waking people up. We hope it will inspire you to wake up, and Stand Together for Freedom.

It includes the voices of:

  • Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
  • Catherine Austin Fitts (US Investment Banker & former Assistant Secretary of HUD)
  • Dr. Andrew Kaufman
  • Dr. Mikael Nordsfors (Sweden)
  • Dr. Heiko Schöning (Germany)
  • Maneka Hellsberg (Sweden)
  • Mads Palsvig (former investment banker, Denmark)
  • Mick Stott (British Army Veteran)
  • Prof. Dolores Cahill PhD (molecular biologist & immunologist, Ireland)
  • Dr. Scott Jensen (Minnesota State Senator)
  • Dr. Heiko Santelmann (MD from Germany)
  • Dr. Elke F. De Klerk (MD from the Netherlands)
  • Thousands of thousands of demonstrators around the world.

Can we trust COVID-19 testing?

Most of our public policies are being driven by the verdict of “deadly pandemic” based on a massive testing effort. But if we can’t trust the test, how can we trust the verdict?

The main test being used as a diagnostic is the PCR test. It was invented in 1985 by Kary Mullis. Yet it was not designed for detecting viruses, let alone for diagnosing humans as being sick and infectious. Kary Mullis is quoted in the New York Times as being very critical of his fellow scientists and questioned many of their assumptions. It is sad that he died before his work was applied in such a sloppy fashion.

How do PCR tests work?

The PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test does not detect viruses. It detects specific target DNA or RNA sequences. It amplifies the target sequence millions of times to make that sequence detectable. This amplification is performed by doubling the target material over and over. The greater the number of cycles, the more DNA is manufactured.

For COVID-19 PCR tests, there are DNA sequences that are multiplied over and over with until they are detectable. These sequences came originally from the scientists in Wuhan, China.

What are the problems with this test?

A Test Without a Standard

If you imagine administering a test in school, someone has to know the standard. We need to know what are the correct answers, and then we need to know how many correct answers are a passing grade. Do we have a standard for these PCR tests? We do not.

Please do the research yourself, but the biggest problem with the PCR tests is that the multiplication factor used to multiply the target sequence is not standardized anywhere. If someone is tested for COVID-19, we don’t know how frequently the target sequence has been multiplied. A positive result can be guaranteed if the multiplication factor is increased sufficiently. This article is a good source to explain many aspects of the issue, often from the mouth of Kary Mullis himself, the inventor of PCR.

What are We Looking For?

Perhaps an even more disturbing question to ask about the tests: Do we even know what we are looking for?

Can we truly say that the DNA sequences that are being tested for really correlate to a deadly virus?

The PCR amplifies genetic material. But what genetic material is it amplifying? It is not even the full genetic code of a virus. They only look for a snippet of the viral RNA. These are the same snippets tested for at the original “outbreak” in Wuhan, China. How did these scientists come by these snippets? Why did countries around the world trust these snippets?

This article won’t try to answer these difficult questions directly, but we suggest you view the excellent documentary Plandemic: inDoctorNation to see the hard evidence behind some serious conflict of interest.

What we will point out is the evidence that the deadly virus supposedly causing this pandemic has not been isolated and purified. Being able to isolate the problem virus would help us verify that the tests actually work. Instead what we have is a pandemic of tests, not a pandemic of viruses.

A Pandemic of False Positives

The PCR test has shown positive results on goats, fruit, and even motor oil by the president of Tanzania back in May 2020.

Since the PCR test cannot tell whether or not this genetic sequence is inside an infectious virus or not, and has not been proven to correlate with an isolated strain of actual viral particles, what we have is a growing epidemic of testing.

The more tests that are executed, the greater the number of “cases”.

We hope you will ask the hard questions, and do the research yourself. Once you do, we’re sure you will know that we can’t trust these tests. More importantly, we can’t trust those who are promoting them.

Standing Together for Education

Our Focus on Education

The original community that met as Stand Together For Freedom chose four main areas of focus, and one of them was the education system for our youth.

A number of us met to work on this and take action. Our original focus was primarily on existing public (government) schools in Ravalli County. Although there has been a very small amount of progress in reducing the CoVID-19 related mask requirements through attendance and speaking at school board meetings, our collective impact there is likely to be very slow. An even harder approach is attempting to influence existing curricula which often undermine traditional family values.

Since facing these frustrations, our main recommendation and work has been to investigate alternatives. The easiest is Homeschooling, which may be much easier than you think. But we will continue to work on all educational fronts.

Why Alternative Education?

Most public schools are enforcing masks.

All regular schools could close at any moment without any say from citizens (by health officials & the Governor). If you have not prepared there is a good chance that education will suffer.

Distance learning options in collaboration with our government schools don’t work well. The staff is unlikely to be able to keep up. Teachers in Stevensville were working 8am-11pm shifts the winter & spring of 2020. At public school board meetings, these same teachers said they would not be able to repeat this level of overtime were shutdowns to happen again.

What are the alternatives? Charter schools might be more responsive, and there are some religious based schools (such as those of the local Amish community) that might not be affected as much by the decisions of public health officials. The most accessible solution is homeschooling.

Homeschooling and its Resources

There are many resources available in our valley for homeschooling:

More Effective Education Methods

If you are seeking alternative education, homeschooling is a very effective approach. Even without extensive training, homeschooling has been measured and proven in the whole to provide a better education and to support more socially adjusted development in our kids than regular government public schooling.

This video “I sued the school system!” also makes a quick case for why we need to make significant changes to schools.

If you want to take a deeper dive, some useful resources for alternative styles of education include Montessori, Waldorf, Outdoor Education, and the books of John Taylor Gatto & Paolo Friere.
