Clifford Johnson is a semi-academic naturalized Brit. He first entered the U.S. as a rah-rah Harkness Fellow. For theater, language, and also as a questionable ex-Brit, Johnson adopts a Tom Paine II persona. His activist credentials comprise serial terminations of employment and pro se litigations raising public policy questions.

Johnson claims to be the only person who has sued the Comptroller of the Currency for a failure to regulate a national bank -- the Bank of America -- which he did in the early 1980s.

Johnson's 15-minutes of fame came in the mid-1980s. Then a manager of computing at Stanford University, he sued the Pentagon, challenging the constitutionality of its nuclear hair-trigger "launch on warning" posture, for riskily and unconstitutionally delegating the decision to initiate nuclear Armageddon to a 3-minute computer-governed military drill.

Johnson is currently challenging the Treasury and GAO in federal court, for misrepresentations as to Federal Reserve versus United States currency. The case raises novel issues of law re the government's right to lie.

Monetary Sovereignty? Give Me A Break! (Part II) The US is cognitively incapable of exercising monetary sovereignty even in issuing its very own $1 coin. Restoring full monetary sovereignty re $1 denominations by eliminating the $1 bill would result in prompt multi-billion dollar seigniorage gains--even after fully paying for the change--and would restore monetary sovereignty more broadly, if only by curing Fed-fed ignorance.
