breakfast-survey-ftrReligion is what happens when you let someone with a book tell you their interpretation of that book and the deity the book claims to be written by. It is what happens when you neglect to interpret the book and the deity yourself in order to gain first-hand knowledge of both. Typically those interpreting the book for you are motivated by either filling the church coffers or convincing you that someone else with another book, that describes another deity, is of the devil and you ought to support carpet bombing them in the name of God. Organized religion has been a thorn in the side of humanity since humanity was cursed with it and until its abolishment, it will continue to be so. Allowing a mediator between you and the Divine is always a bad practice and should be shunned for spirituality; which is a personal knowing of the Divine on one’s own. Thankfully, it does appear that more and more people are throwing off the filthy rags of organized religion and adopting a more intimate relationship with their own spirituality over the past few years. Jesse Herriott is one of those people and I cannot tell you how excited I was to meet this man and hear him speak at Unity of Central Georgia not too long ago. His message and the clarity in which he delivers it was one that I was eager to share with our subscribers.

Obviously we have to bring you some stories which are negative when politicians, law enforcement or media outlets need a spotlight pointed in their direction; but this time I was happy to have an episode brought to you that was simply an overall uplifting message. I hope you enjoy.






ZENINTHECAR-T.V.-CREWRecently Eric Bell, host of For Whom the Bell Tolls, had the gang from ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. visit his show for a two hour candid discussion on everything from the Liberty Movement to spirituality. We thought it was worth sharing with all of you who might have missed it the first time around. So we hope that you are enlightened and we hope that you enjoy listening to the gang come to the airwaves with the message they are determined to spread.

Sabrina Black: Zen Spirituality


Sabrina Black


I have mentioned before that several of us here at ZENINTHECAR.COM have recently gone through major “life changes”; however that is not to say that such “life changes” have been limited to we alone. No; in fact many of you out there are also experiencing such things and for those of you who have a spiritual proclivity this is due in part to a process that is happening world-wide to a certain percentage of people. It is a spiritual awakening happening to those who are in tune with it that is causing all the seemingly tumultuous events in our lives.
In this episode of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V., Sabrina Black addresses this awakening and how we should respond to it in order to pass through the process with as few bumps and bruises as possible. Enjoy.







With the recent killing of James Boyd, the camper from New Mexico, an uproar has begun in this country. With the senseless murder of a man doing little more than setting up a place in which to sleep in the middle of the desert, the true nature of our law enforcement agencies has become clear. They are not here to protect and serve, rather they are here to enforce statutes and acts with the barrel of a gun. As more and more video is being uploaded of police brutality on a daily basis, we as Americans have to ask ourselves when enough is enough.
In the following episode of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V., Daniel Louis Crumpton paints a picture of the horror we as Liberty activists are facing when dealing with the police. In it he shares some disturbing footage of cruel acts performed by the police on average citizens and explains our right to defend ourselves against them when they step outside the confines of the Constitution. The following are some of the references for the “Stand your Ground” law he mentions near the conclusion:
“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

“When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80; Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.

“These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence.” Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.

“An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery.” (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).

“Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense.” (State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).

“One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance.” (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).

“Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In his own writings, he had admitted that ‘a situation could arise in which the checks-and-balances principle ceased to work and the various branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.’ There would be no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded, ‘If there be any remedy at all … it is a remedy never provided for by human institutions.’ That was the ‘ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous injustice.’” (From Mutiny on the Amistad by Howard Jones, Oxford University Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

As for grounds for arrest: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace.” (Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197).

It was once said of America, that we were a terrible dragon waking up. Let it be said now that what is waking up is a terrible Red, White and Blue dragon. Enjoy ZEN IN THE CAR T.V.




Hey all you Zenners. How’s it going? Going good? That’s good. Going good for me too, glad you asked. So anyways we just wanted to drop you this little line and let you know that we have a new kinda-sortof thingy here at ZENINTHECAR.COM. A lot of our fans and creepy followers have inquired what its like to be what we are and do what we do. They want to see the curtain of the wizard pulled back. They want to know what it is like to be in Team Zen when Team Zen isn’t on film or giving a speech.
As most of you know, Team Zen is a very close knit family. We are unique and diverse individuals that have somehow managed to come together under a common flag without ripping each other’s throats out. The common flag we all fly is that of Freedom and Liberty, and that flag affords us unity. However, from time to time we think it is appropriate to sit on the bridge of the Zenterprise and simply philosophize. These are the moments where the magic really happens. So we thought you guys might like to sneak in on those moments where the crew of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. have their shields down and are doing what they do best. Enjoy some Midnight Zen. Midnight Zen is simply a freeze frame of how we operate at the middle of the night, or as you would…a step across the looking glass.





D.L. Crumpton and Derrick Grayson


I can remember during the last couple of presidential election cycles feeling very much like an island at times in my support of Ron Paul. Now keep in mind, no one that supported Ron Paul really supported the man, rather what the man stood for; Freedom, Liberty and the Constitution. In a world where people focus on the technicalities of what a document says rather than the soul of what is written, it was rare to find others that had such concepts burning in their bones. It was rare to find someone who didn’t approach the Constitution like a legal document rather like a Holy document. While others were supporting politicians, we were supporting a statesman. We were supporting a man who was open, honest, and not offering to butter our bread more than he was offering us the opportunity to butter our own damn bread.


Derrick Grayson with Jason Patrick

During that time there were few media voices willing to shout from the rooftops and echo this message of Freedom and Liberty, so we as supporters had to become the media. Derrick Grayson (TMOT) was one of the loudest and clearest advocates for the concepts we all embrace here at ZENINTHECAR.COM. I can’t tell you how many days I raced home to catch his “Drive Time” rants on YouTube and sat on the edge of my seat with the feeling that finally I was not alone. Finally there was someone else that understood this type of thing without having to walk them around the pond. He doesn’t mince words, he doesn’t dodge questions, and he doesn’t water down the words of our Founding Fathers. When we released the project statement I AM THE COG, a comprehensive plan to take back our Republic, Derrick Grayson was one of the first to throw his support behind it, and since that time we knew he was as Stan Lee would say, a True Believer. So it tickled us to no avail to find out that he was running for the House of Representatives for our fine state. Team Zen scrambled to find out how we could contribute to his voice getting louder and his campaign becoming a success. And after all that scrambling we decided just to do what we do best. Cover him as we would any other politician and let his own words either uplift or condemn him.

We find it ironic that Derrick Grayson is known for “Drive Time” where most of his ideas probably come to him while stuck in a car, and we here attained Enlightenment in ours while stuck in traffic. It appears a hybrid baby of ZEN and DRIVE TIME was inevitable with all that hindsight being 20\20 and all. So we hope you enjoy a little Drive Time Zen.




Like Father, Like Son


Greetings all you Zenners. Today is 3/5/14. For those of you into numerology, have a big ball of fun with that, for those of you more familiar with we here at ZENINTHECAR.COM it should come as no surprise that this is indeed a very special day. As you all know Patriotism, Freedom and Liberty are Holy precepts for us having come from bloodlines that have spilt so much of that sacred serum for the aforementioned causes in various ways. It is also no secret that one of the greatest inspirations for what we do here is our very own Daniel Louis Crumpton’s father, Myron “Sarge” Crumpton. A father, Grandfather, friend, Patriot, soldier and one of the loudest supporters for his precious first amendment you could ever imagine; ascended to the starry heights a few years ago. He left behind him a legacy we all try to live up to in restoring this country to the Republic he fought so hard to maintain.

Today is the celebration of his birthday, and for this cause we forced D.L.C to pull his eyes away from the multiple monitors and rip his fingers from the keyboard in order to go and observe such a day in reverence and Zen. “Go do your crazy spiritual stuff at his grave, man, we have this one” said we as he thought twice about walking out the door. We didn’t think too much damage could be done seeing as how all we had to do is deliver to you the introduction to the second episode of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. As a birthday wish we did however inquire of him how we would like us to mold this introduction and his request was simple enough. “Honor his memory with the capstone of brotherhood.”


Myron and Gene Crumpton
(no photo of Jimmy available)

Given the context of the episode we understood fully and now intend to make you fully aware. Sarge Crumpton entered two foreign wars with two of his brothers; Jimmy and Gene. Sarge was the fighter, Jimmy provided the sustenance for fellow troops and Gene was the martyr. It truly was a band of brothers bound in blood but more important than that, they were a band of brothers bound in ideology. The concepts of our Founders and the Constitution they gave us flowed through them more so than the genetics which bound them in birth. Each had a role in the history of our country and played that role to the best of their ability. Now that all three of them are playing a game of cribbage or poker in the great pool hall in the sky; it seems our generation must carry on that mantle.

Now unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years it should come as no surprise to you that there is a Revolution taking place in this country. However unlike previous Revolutions, this one is going to be won peacefully and without a shot having to be fired. It will be won with ideals and an overwhelming feeling of brotherhood in the spirit of Freedom and Liberty. Those on the same vibrational frequency are seemingly finding one another to assemble themselves as cogs in a machine in order to carry out this function. As you all know, team Zen has been quite busy the past year running all over the state and assembling this required band of brothers in philosophy and ideology. What we have found is that the lone voice crying in the wilderness that we know as Ron Paul has most certainly multiplied. The one has become the many and we assure you those voices are getting louder.

chrisandhiramEach of us are understanding that we all have talents and gifts and those talents and gifts must carry us to the area we are needed in order for all to work as ONE. Some of us are made for politics, others for activism, and yet others to tell the story. Each member of this machine is important and needed. This isn’t about finding a leader; it’s about finding the leader within ourselves and performing that function to the best of our ability in the area we are called to.

That being said, recently Team Zen was fortunate enough to form a brotherhood with two titans among men, Christopher Hill and Hiram Lincoln Madge from the Constitutional Security Force. We here at ZENINTHECAR.COM have dubbed them Boanerges; the Sons of Thunder. Veterans of our armed forces as well as Patriots; these two men are both serving their roles to help us preserve the Republic in their individual calling. Hiram can always be seen flanking the crew of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. at various functions utilizing his second amendment to preserve our first, and as of late Christopher can be seen running for office. The tenth congressional district of Georgia has been blessed by the deities to receive a candidate for the House of Representatives that best not be ignored.

The problem in our country is career politicians. Men and women that are only seeking power and prestige over Freedom and Liberty. The solution to this problem is We the People standing up to become statesmen; to serve in public office in order to steer legislation back to the Ten Amendments. Christopher Hill is truly the statesman Georgia is looking for. He’s not polished, he’s not talking with a silver tongue, but his heart is beating with your best interest in mind. And rest assured every step he takes forward is only going to make him more of the Warrior for Freedom and Liberty this state needs. So without further ado we submit to you the words of these two great Patriots on the steps of the capitol at a recent event with Team Zen in Atlanta. We hope you are inspired, that you learn something and of course we hope you will support Chris Hill in his run for office and throw all of your support behind him. Enjoy ZEN IN THE CAR T.V..




Once again we welcome you back to year three of ZENINTHECAR.COM, and year two of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V.. We appreciate all of your urges for us to come back but as we said, everything happens exactly when it’s supposed to and though we have taken a considerable amount of time to evolve, it seems that now it is appropriate for us to return and it couldn’t have been one second sooner. So with little fanfare and little prose to reintroduce you to who we are, we present the first episode of this new and exciting season. Thank you for liking, sharing helping us grow and of course if you agree with what we here at ZENINTHECAR.COM are doing don’t hesitate to donate so the cause can spread further and further. Enjoy, ZEN IN THE CAR T.V..


Sabrina Black: The Importance of the 2nd Amendment Pt 2

As the second evolution of ZENINTHECAR.COM comes to a close and we retreat into the coming months of cold and enter into a state of hibernation; we were happy to look back on the past year and see how much our audience has grown. But more importantly we were particularly proud of launching ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. where voices of Freedom and Liberty can be found and given a spotlight to lead by example in activism. In the short amount time since we launched, several Patriots and Freedom Fighters in the 8th congressional district of Georgia have been featured and given a platform where their First Amendment is respected and highlighted-and of course Jason Patrick’s efforts to raise awareness of the militarization of police was a milestone in our efforts.
So as we all go on hiatus we wanted to wrap up the last ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. episode for a while with the freshest face to our enterprise, Sabrina Black. While we go through government shut downs, more suspiciously, maniacal shootings timed perfectly for gun control debates, ever expanding wars, ever increasing government, an ever failing dollar and a more Orwellian surveillance state; we thought it proper to close out with a serious wake-up call in regards to the second amendment.
The Founding Fathers, being students of the Creator, understood that all governments erode over time. They start off as a free Republic because they were fed up with the tyrannical state they had just shaken off. They start fresh at the drawing board and decide a Republic is the best way to go and it is. It offers Freedom, Liberty and Equality for all who manage to keep it a Republic. However this proves most difficult due to the fact that after a generation or two those Freedoms and Liberties make people gradually become apathetic. When the people become apathetic that’s when the scum floats to the top of government. When the scum is at the top, then it becomes a mad dash back into a tyranny as those in control limit information to the masses below; thereby over time convincing them they are free while at the same time eliminating any awareness of their Rights. This is the area where things tend to get a little messy.
Thankfully our Founders were wise enough to nearly mandate the arming of all Americans for the sole purpose of protecting themselves from the scum they knew were sure to end up slithering in the halls of government. So without further preface; Sabrina Black.





ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. had the opportunity to meet a young woman by the name of Sabrina Merganthaler Black in our travels of activism and couldn’t help but persuade her to be a regular contributor. We found her insights as a mother, a wife, and an activist to be quite enlightening as well as her optimistic spirit in regards to the state of our country and the state of our world. In a time when it seems more trendy to follow what Paris Hilton is wearing or what she isn’t its very refreshing to hear from strong female voices that are more attuned with what is actually going on in the world. In this second American Revolution there is no doubt that women need to have a voice in regards to the direction our country is being taken in and we are proud to welcome Sabrina Black as a voice for others who are still slugging about in ignorance. We hope you enjoy.
