December 10, 2013 Concerning Charles Manson: Letter from a member of the US Armed Forces
As I have grown older, I have come to understand the media for what it really is…sensationalistic journalism designed to titillate it's viewers. A prime example is the Geraldo Rivera special "Murder: Live from Death Row" that aired on national television in 1988. It is available on YouTube, so I urge you to watch it. Then, compare the actual television program, specifically Geraldo interviewing Charles Manson, to his entire and unedited interview of Manson, which is also available on YouTube. You will see what I mean. Geraldo cuts and splices the interview so that Manson's words are taken out of context and used against him.
Let me be clear about something….He is a criminal and has done some very bad things in his life. BUT being a petty criminal, and mastermind of the most heinous crime in U.S. history, are two very different things. I won't try to explain what I mean by that here, but I suggest doing your own research. The cards were completely stacked against him from birth, yet he has persevered. He is very unusual and definitely marches to the beat of a different drum. But I can assure you he is not the "Most Dangerous Man Alive" or the devil, re-incarnated.
I know this because I have gotten to know him on a very personal level over the last four years. As a service member stationed in Afghanistan in 2009, I began writing to him because I wanted to see for myself what he was "really" like... not the typical news coverage designed to scare old ladies and increase network ratings. Through phone calls and letters, I have learned that he is nothing like what we have been led to believe over the last forty-four years.
Besides what you THINK you might know about him, I can also tell you that he has a huge admiration and respect for the military. He befriended me and gave many thanks for what I do to serve our country. He cares about what is happening to the country and to the world. He has a positive message, if you will just listen. Being raised in institutions, he has spent most of his life in solitary confinement. That being said, his perception of reality is completely different from ours. You need to understand that from the onset. He doesn't speak in a language or dialect that we are used to hearing. He speaks almost entirely with figurative language to illustrate his points and most of us aren't used to that. He is wise beyond his years and also very intelligent. Open your ears and open your mind and you will be surprised at what you will hear.

Here’s an answer:
If you could get everybody that’s watching football, basketball, and baseball, to accept the truth in words, and you tell all those people a simple message – that if you don’t start planting and putting back into the earth everything that you’ve taken from it, you’re all going to die and perish in a cruel terrible way, forever. It’s not complicated.
Jesus never died, because Jesus is the guy we’ve been picking on all these years. That’s why you never stopped crucifying Christ, because you’re only crucifying your own world, crucifying yourselves, because you won’t accept the truth about things.
The truth is that you’re not going to get anything unless you pay for it. You’re getting away with the bounty of all those sacrifices that your army and your soldiers made for you. The only ones that are worth anything is the soldiers, because they serve their God, and they give their lives for that.
You’re all soldiers of God. And the God is you. And you’re gonna die a terrible death if you don’t put the flowers back, if you don’t put the trees back, if you don’t put the garden back. If you don’t put all the things that you’ve taken from the earth, if you don’t put’em back - and you don’t stop that pollution! If you don’t go back in time, and start all over.
You have a chance to be reborn. That means start over - all over. If you don’t start it all over, you’re gonna have nothing left. And you don’t have no time, you’ve wasted it all.
I’m the last person on earth. The bad man, unwanted throwaway child, telling you I’ve retired all of you; to nothing.
Zezo Zeze Zadfrack.

November 24, 2013 Charles Manson On the Latest Media Hype
You’ve got to stop warring against air. Your sin is against yourself, ‘is your sin against air. Air is all you’ve got. If you’re making money to sell your air, you’re selling your own life. You’re buying and selling your own life to destruction. That system that you say that I’m not good, that I’m a danger to, I might be a danger to your stupidity and I’m a danger to your ignorance, but I’m not a danger to intelligent life forms. I’m not a danger to the people who want to exist on the planet. I’m not a danger to farmers, I’m not a danger to poor people, I’m not a danger to soldiers who don’t want to hurt nobody, who don’t wanna go to war, but who’s forced into war by the bureaucrats who want to destroy themselves.
- Charles Manson, 2011 (Vanity Fair Spain interview)
November 20, 2013
Put that on [the website], say, we must be saying something, because all these people are so jealous that they can’t seem to keep their hate to themselves. They wanna hate what they don’t understand. If they can’t understand it, that’s not [our] fault. Yea, that’s actually a witness for you. You know, we must be saying something [right] because we wouldn’t have all these people against us if we wasn’t. They’re all jealous. They’re ganging up on somebody, why are they ganging up on it? Well, we’ve always been at the bottom, there ain’t nobody helped me.
If you look at, the only thing that’s made me famous is the people that are against me. The people that talk shit about me are the ones that made me into who I am. If it wasn’t for that lying-ass district attorney, I would have never been “Charlie Manson”. He made “the family”. He made it with his bullshit. He made it with all them filthy fuckin’ lies he told in the courtroom. That’s the kind of people you’re dealing with. They think to discredit you is gonna make them better. They think they wanna build their dream on the destruction of your dream. The only thing they got going is, to down somebody else – they have nothing going, they just wanna keep somebody else from making it. They don’t wanna make it; they wanna stop somebody else from making it because they can’t make it. They can’t make it unless they feed on somebody else. Look at everything they’re doing.
That’s what this person said to me when I mentioned a similar thing to them about what people were doing to me, and he said he can’t understand why people want to talk bad about me, “because of you there’s a song in my heart, because of you this romance had its start – because of you the sun will shine, the moon and stars will say you’re mine, forever…” You know, they wanna be down on the very same person that they’re feeding on. It don’t make no sense at all.

We would like to express our heart-felt thanks and appreciation to all the people who sent donations to the Charles Manson Legal Trust. As of today, your donations to CMLT in support of Charlie’s package total $435.
Your support has helped us to purchase a great 4th quarter package for Charlie. These quarterly packages give an important health and nutritional boost for men who are confined and provided a terribly inadequate diet.

November 8, 2013 Memo From Manson
They're trying to get me to see a doctor. It's a bunch of bullshit.
They just come over from 'Frisco [saying] that the air's all dying and the water's getting so polluted they can't drink it. So yeah, everything we said is coming true. These fuckin' assholes don't wanna listen to the truth about anything, man. They wanna force their bullshit over on somebody else. Lying double-dealing fake phonies.
You know, if it's not in the movies they can't understand it – isn't that weird? You gotta make a movie about it before they can. And then they cut the interviews off… so they could sing… worthless pieces of dog shit.
Put it up on the wire: They just can't seem to leave me alone. They wanna play-act like I'm dead. Haha, I've been doing that for 65 years.

November 8, 2013 Report
Unhealthy conditions of confinement:
Living conditions in the PHU aggravate the health problems of inmates. The air is consistently polluted by concrete dust from the unpainted concrete block walls. There are also pervasive chemical fumes from floor strippers, pesticides and toxic cleaners. Dust and debris from the outside air is pumped in through dirty and neglected ventilation ducts.
Despite numerous written requests and a doctor’s prescription, Manson is being denied clearance for an air purifier.
Ignoring obvious nutritional deficiencies in the prison diet, doctors and medical staff routinely deny Manson’s requests for normal treatment options. Conflicting information has been presented to Manson by medical staff, and “No” is their safe and standard answer for common sense solutions.
Prison mailroom staff members are once again failing to process and deliver Manson’s mail in a fair and timely manner. Incoming mail for Charlie has come up missing, and the mail that he does receive is being delivered in bunches of six to ten letters, followed by a lapse of several or more days with no mail at all.
Dozens of envelopes are marked with yellow “refusal slips”, meaning the mail has been kept from Manson for “internal rules violations”. There is no transparent over-sight of this punitive process. Portions of Charlie’s outgoing mail are also being stolen or destroyed, and the entire mail stream is so slow that it often takes 30 days or more for mail going either way to be delivered.
Inmates in other units of the prison also report that their mail stream is marred by severe slowdowns and missing mail.
November 1, 2013 MansonDirect.com - New Frequently Asked Questions
1 - I want to write to Manson - does he write back to people?
There is really no way to tell if your mail was received. You can track it from the post office to the prison; however once it arrives there, it is in the hands of the mailroom staff. Your best bet is to make sure you send mail within the boundaries of the mailroom rules. (See question -6- for additional information)
No. Manson does not have access to a computer. In fact he has never used a computer, and he does not have an email account. It is clearly stated on the Contact page that he can only be reached by regular mail. If you see someone posting or emailing online claiming to be Manson, please be aware that it is a sure fake. (We noticed a twitter account a while ago which claimed to be Manson posting from his cell).
Manson can receive:
Letters (10 pages per envelope)
Stamps – (2 books [40 stamps] ) per envelope
Check or money order (no value limit)
Cards and postcards (plain paper only - no glitter or lamination)
Pictures (10 per envelope, maximum size 8x10")
If you wish to send a painting, the safest thing to do is to send a copy of it.
A few people have asked why their mail is stamped with "Santa Clarita" instead of "Bakersfield". Apparently the Bakersfield Postal Distribution Center was closed in September 2013; prison mail is now routed through Santa Clarita CA. In addition, the "Corcoran State Prison" red-ink-stamp on the front of the envelope is also authentic. Click here for an example of a letter/envelope/writing from Manson, and an example of his fan-mail informational material.
There have been complaints from people who have received this mail, wanting instead to have something "original" from Manson. To these complaints, Manson has responded, "They're complaining? They're lucky they got anything at all. I can't write back to every ding-dong that writes me!" Please know that when you receive a flyer or card in the mail from CM and the X-men, it has been sent to you specifically at Charlie's direction.
The pictures featured on this site were taken in the visiting room at Corcoran State Prison, Corcoran CA. CM is seen with regular visitors Star, Gray Wolf and Black Wolf.
No; of course not. MansonDirect has been on-line since 2002 and ATWA has had a web-presence since the mid-nineteen nineties. In addition, Charlie has been talking about ATWA in his interviews for over 40 years. It is only natural that thousands of people world-wide are responding to Charlie’s strength and integrity and his consistent message of awareness and Earth stewardship.
Please note that the site has undergone a recent remodeling, and a large amount of new material has been added within the past year (see the Words, Case and Interviews sections).
A Trust Fund is a legal entity. It has its own bank account and tax ID number. CMLT was created by legal contract (Trust document), which means the serving Trustees are bound by law to administer the funds only and exactly as specified in the founding document.
12 - Do you know about the negative rants against you being published on the internet?
Yes. Once again it has been brought to our attention that meritless personal attacks and accusations are being made against ATWA, Charles Manson, Gray Wolf, and Star in various online fan groups.
It can be noted by those concerned, that the sources of these most recent aspersions are murderabilia collectors, “serial killer” fans, or other such merchants of ghoul.
We understand that self-promoters of this ilk are competing with one another for notoriety, attention, “rare” commodities, and profit.
This type of baseless slander and innuendo has constantly been directed at Charlie and his friends since he was released from prison in 1967.
We purposefully ignore the self-generated drama, delusions, slanderous lies, and ill-informed gossip of all fans and murderabilia collector-merchants.
MansonDirect.com and ATWA are not in competition with anyone for anything.
MansonDirect is not a celebrity fan-club. ATWA is not a fan-club.
Yes, it is scheduled to be featured in the year-end double issue of Rolling Stone magazine (December-January 2013). It will be a story-style article from the author's perspective, featuring conversational interviews with Charlie and his friends. In an extremely rare event, the author did meet with CM during a regular weekend visit in September.
We wish to thank the many hundreds and hundreds of people who have contacted us sharing positive feelings and experiences and support; and those who help and have helped in our efforts for ATWA and in support of Charlie. We truly appreciate your dedication to this cause and your inspiring certainty of purpose. We feel truly blessed to be touched by so many lives and to be a small part of this global awakening.

July 21, 2013
On the night of July 16th, Charlie was asleep when he fell off the bunk and hit his head above his right eye, resulting in two black eyes. There have been several false rumors circulating that an inmate hit him, cops hit him, or that he had a seizure, etc. Star visited with him this weekend, and she confirms that he is doing fine, despite the rather dramatic looking black eyes. She also confirms that there was no foul play involved. He was examined by medical staff the next morning and spent the day being monitored in the hospital. Charlie was cleared by his doctors to return to his unit and is showing no further symptoms of injury.
Charlie says that the doctors treated him professionally - “The doctor, was number one, his name was Dr. Jin Yu. He’s a Chinese doctor, he’s a true doctor, very good, efficient expert. I’d say he did a good job with the situation and handled it perfectly. The other doctor, is a soldier doctor, Dr. Gill. His word is his bond, he’s a good man. His techniques were very professional and he’s a tremendous doctor.”

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed

it’s a part of you and you’re a part of it. And you are the order of ATWA.
… It’s not the question, “Why did you crucify
Christ?”. You search the books, you
search the scholars, you go through all the high minds of the world and say, “Why
did you crucify Christ?”, and you’re not going to get an answer because it’s
the wrong question.
The question is – are you ready? Why are you crucifying Christ?
Why are you crucifying Christ every day? Every day you’re killing Christ’s air. Every day you’re taking Christ’s life. Every day you’re poisoning Christ’s
If you really truly love Christ, then get with ATWA.

Everybody that’s helped has always had a fuckin’ ulterior

You see, from my point of view, I had to go through all these things to get a point of view. And then from my point of view I have an epiphany, and to me it’s new and it’s real and I understand it, somewhat. And it’s leading me to other thoughts that go in similar directions.
My phobia is running out of air. My phobia is being welded in a barrel upside down, or my phobia is a plastic bag over my head, or just not having enough to breathe. Because that’s a terrible feeling to be… that’s really, you know, that’s the worst. I think to wake somebody up, it would be good just to take your air for a few seconds, show them how frustrating that really gets.
The will of the air is really dominant, but it hasn’t got to people’s mind yet. They get in their car and they hear on the news, well the bumble bees are all dying. They don’t give a fuck about no bumble bees – they got payments to make, they got problems, they got things that are more important than bumble bees, you dig?
Now, we got nobody to stand up for the bees. So there’s nobody helping the bees, so we need a few hundred motorcycles dressed up like bees, that understand what air means, and what running out of air means. Put them on the highway, saying you know, like, let’s cut this down. You know, if they won’t cut it down one way, we’ll help them cut it down another way, for the love of the atmosphere that we breathe.
If people don’t have any love for themselves, that’s on them. But we have love for the bees, I have love for the bees. My love for the bees, Sandy’s a little bee. You know, I love that little bee, man. But not just for it’s honey, I love that little bee for itself. Because it has a self too, it has a life, and it loves it’s life, and it deserves it’s life. It works hard. It does good for the will of God.
The will of God is what we’re dealing with, we’re not dealing with man’s will – we already know man’s will is destroying everything. We’re dealing with the air we’re breathing, soldier, it’s the air that we breathe.
The Marine Drill Sergeant, it comes out of service, gets up on the train. He’s got a straight razor in his pocket, and he’s gonna get on a box car and ride around, and clean up the air. Because he’s got other people coming that are right behind him, ‘cause they’re falling out of the thing that ain’t working. And all the things that ain’t working are gonna come here with the chickens, sweetheart.
My little red chicken, in Warwood mountaintop, over there with pigs and slop, over there in tip top and be-bop, over there in Florida’s gang, over there with Castro and the Navy’s man. Everywhere I got, I got a ship in the sea. That’s the way I’m doing it pirate – the pirates are George Washington’s Navy.
George Washington’s Navy is the Sons of Liberty. Truth. Semper Fi, there’s no doubt, breathe in and breathe out. Attention! Breathe in and breathe out. There’s no confusion, nothing to think about. Air is God.

Yesterday, MansonDirect.com participated in the internet blackout which was organized to raise awareness about internet freedom and privacy. Click here to view the blackout page for more information about this issue.
-- Update April 13, 2013 -- Charlie's visiting status has been restricted to one hour behind glass "until further notice".
-- Update, April 4, 2013 -- According to prison officials, Charles Manson's visiting status has been updated. The temporary visiting suspension has been lifted. More details soon.
March 31, 2013
This weekend, prison officials have informed us that Mr. Manson's visiting privileges have been suspended “until further notice”. According to staff at the visiting entrance, the suspension order was issued by the warden's office.
An officer informed Star that the temporary suspension was due to a pending investigation. At this time we do not have any solid indication as to how long it may continue.
March 29, 2013 Charles Manson:
"ATWA is infallible."
March 28, 2013 Charles Manson:
Whatever I possess is contraband, as held down on me by the interpretation of people who don’t abide by their own laws. Whatever I do is illegal and against the law, as the same type of bureaucrats just make up laws to get around the laws that they made up last week.
I’m allowed to do nothing. Whatever I do is not permitted by fear, lies and confusion. They have taken my watch away 5 times, and gave it back 3. They keep taking it, and each time they run out of time they run and get my watch.
The Program Administrators gave me a recording machine because I had a music program in San Quentin. Everybody knows I’ve recorded in San Quentin, and in Vacaville I had a music program with a recorder.
The program administrator gave me permission, but then jealous and incompetent people who wanna put their rock and roll bands in front of mine, take mine and say that the Governor said I can’t do this and the Governor said I can’t do that. And the Governor didn’t say anything, because the Governor’s a movie star. He’s making movies, he’s reading scripts; he’s not saying anything. He didn’t say anything in his whole career. All he did was say what was written on that thing that they read to the public.
Death row came down in 1971. And they keep trying to put it back with humpty dumpty sat on a wall, and humpty dumpty had a big fall, and they still keep trying to put humpty dumpty back together again.
They lost the Korean war, and they have the atomic bomb now. They lost to China, and they have the Panama Canal. You’ve got a slave trader, and he’s trying to put it back together from Abraham Lincolns’ mistakes.
Manson is not allowed to have a phone. The whole world is using telephones. I’m being held in the ‘20s and ‘30s by phones that make phone calls for a nickel, and old movies of prisons, as the warden’s office is being run by the kitchen help, and the old slave traders of yesterday seem to have the lock on the future, with the graveyards of the walking dead over in the Avalon Ballroom, with a rock and roll band that was only faking on the public, because the real people were locked up in some cages while the fake people control the music.
They control the minds of the public from the schools that the Koreans are already taking over, and the Vietnamese have taken over, and the Mongs have taken over. And all the people that were running the United States, they’re hiding in Wall Street. And the Pope is even trying to get away to Buenos Aires, where Hitler was hiding after the second-world-war in the Brazilian jungles. They’re chopping it up, and they’re destroying the planet Earth; Air, Water, Trees and Animals.
That’s why they don’t want me to have a telephone.
And anybody that wants to survive will help the Gray Wolf, because he’s not wrong in what he’s doing. He’s the only one left-over from all the intimidation and all the punishment that your servants have placed upon our heads and shoulders to carry in the name of Jesus.
And you can’t even put a Chaplain in the prisons anymore, because you’re lying double-dealing with the whole world coming in and feasting on the dead carcass of Abraham Lincoln; he’s dead and stinkin’. He was lying all the way. He didn’t have the right to divide and conquer the real United States. The real United States was the Sons of Liberty, and George Washington over in the graveyard. They come up in the resurrection, the truth, and the light.
The Constitution and the Bill of Rights was right on. And it’s still right. But who you gonna’ get to make them do right? You hear them politicians? They say the same thing over and over. Every time they talk to the money, and old people that fear dying in old-folks homes.
And then you stand the children up in fear to pledge allegiance in the first grade again, and teach the same old garbage all over-and-over again.
Wake up little Suzie, wake up. Where’s the playground now?
But you don’t want to admit the truth to yourselves. So what do you expect anyone to do?
You’re fired! Get out of my way! Stand down out of my jobs!
You’re not doing jobs for anyone. You’re just destroying the resources of the Earth and the last chance for ATWA.
You can’t make it without air, baby. And you can’t make the air without the trees. Stop letting other countries lumber in your parks.
Stop cheating in the dark and throwing your gobs of trash in the ocean.
[Recorded voice- “This call and your telephone number will be recorded and monitored”]
This call and your life will be re-monitored.
Re-re-monitored? Re-re-monitored. Computer-data, simulate, photograph.
Re-do it. Re-birth? Love is unconditional, poodle dog.

March 27, 2013 "Charles Manson has no followers..."
Charles Manson has no followers, he will not allow it. He has lots of friends and thousands of supporters, but there is no such thing as a Manson follower. ATWA is the reason, ATWA is the love we reflect. Hold your breath for three minutes, then tell me what you want most in life. If we can’t redeem our Air, Trees, and Water, we don’t exist.
- Gray Wolf, March 27, 2013
I’ve been Mansons’ friend for about 10 years now. I am not a “follower”. There are no followers. That concept is a lie and a myth. In addition to Charlie, I know some people who were with him in the ‘60s and ‘70s. They weren’t allowed to testify for the defense during the trial, and their side of the story was covered up in court and by the media. Back then, there were a few loyal friends and a bunch of other people hanging around, coming and going at all times. They left when they wanted to, and came back when they wanted to. They were not deprived and brainwashed with drugs. Everyone did what they wanted to do.

Life: What was the Manson Family?
March 25, 2013
Charles Manson's friend and regular visitor, Gray Wolf, was detained Sunday morning at 11:00 am, March 24, 2013, on the public side of the Level 4 visitation entrance, Corcoran State Prison, Corcoran, CA. Preliminary charges by the prison against Gray Wolf are listed as possession of an “illegal communication device”, and two additional variations of the same offense.
Manson’s close friend, Star, was sitting with Charlie at a table in the PHU visiting room at the time of Gray Wolf’s detainment. Within minutes, visiting Sergeant Fritz entered the room and accosted Star at the table, demanding that she stand, put her hands behind her back, and submit to being handcuffed. Star asked the Sergeant what was going on, but he refused to answer. Star stood and complied with the Sergeants orders and was handcuffed. A female officer, accompanying Sergeant Fritz, held Star by the arms as they escorted her from the room, through the crowded Level 4 public waiting area, and on to a prison shuttle bus.
Meanwhile, Charles Manson was searched and then escorted to a holding cell. His personal cell was searched by prison staff, and he was returned to his cell later in the afternoon.
Gray Wolf and Star were detained separately and held for questioning and search for approximately 5 hours by staff of the prisons’ Investigative Services Unit (ISU).
Both Star and Gray Wolf were subjected to a personal security search (strip-search). Both gave ISU staff permission to search their personal vehicles. All searches were negative for contraband.
Star refused to answer questions by ISU staff, referring them to her ID for personal information. Star was released at about 4:30 pm with no changes to her prison-authorized visiting status.
Gray Wolf was apprised of the charges against him, his “Miranda” rights were read to him, and he subsequently asked for counsel to be present. ISU staff then declined to question him at that time. Gray Wolf was transported from the prison by ISU staff. He was booked and released on a $30,000 bond from the nearby county jail. Gray Wolf’s first court appearance is currently set for late April, 2013.
