Here are all the past Birds-of-a Feather articles from AEHI Truth, starting with SEC-sanctioned Source Capital principal and ending up with the letter of support from, among others, Senator Larry Craig:

While Don Gillispie and Jennie Ransom were (according to the SEC, FBI, and Department of Justice) perpetuating this fraud upon investors and local governments, they had assistance from many paid shills, among them Martin Johncox and Bruce Wong, now director of the Ada County Highway District.
On April 22, 2009, AEHI presented a rezone request to the Elmore County Commissioners. Back when the Mountain Home News was still a news source, they did this article on that hearing.
In the transcript below, Bruce Wong demonstrates his sharply honed skills of character discernment by telling all of us what a great guy Don Gillispie is. Wong took the time to explain the importance of credibility and credentials to the commissioners before they took up the mundane details of the rezone. Here is Mr. Wong's glorious introduction of Don Gillispie, in which he makes a few seemingly outlandish claims about Don's resume:
MR. WONG: Good Evening, Commissioners. My name is Bruce Wong, W-O-N-G. And it's my pleasure to provide you a brief introduction to Mr. Don Gillispie and a short summary of his impressive credentials and accomplishments in the nuclear energy business. To begin--
MODERATOR: Can people hear?
AUDIENCE MEMBERS: No.
MR. WONG: Let me start again. It's still a good evening to you Commissioners. And, again, my name is Bruce Wong, and it is my pleasure to provide you a brief introduction to Mr. Don Gillispie and a short summary of his impressive credentials in a nuclear energy business.
To begin, Mr. Gillispie is the chairman and CEO of the Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc.
MODERATOR: Mr. Wong, if I could, is this about zoning?
MR. WONG: Yes.
MODERATOR: I mean, it's your time, but I just wanted to let you know that--
MR. WONG: I think it's important on this request to establish the credentials of the individual that is making the request for you.
MR. GILLISPIE: Gentlemen, I really think that -- and ladies, excuse me. I think it's important because if you're going to rezone this property, I believe it's important to know who you're turning the rezone over to and why. There's a credibility here. There's been a lot of misinformation, produced by people who oppose us, about us, and I really think it's important to set the record straight. And we'll take a couple of minutes to do that with Mr. Wong.
MODERATOR: Okay. It's just your time, that's all.
MR. WONG: Thank you, sir. I appreciate the clarification.
Anyway, as I continue on, handpicked by Admiral Rickover, a father of this country's nuclear Navy, he began his career in nuclear energy management and production as a U.S. naval officer, graduating from the Navy's nuclear power school. Assigned as a nuclear plant operator, Mr. Gillispie was mentored in this critical zero error tolerance duty by the Navy's first nuclear submarine captain, Admiral Dennis Wilkinson.
After his distinguished Navy nuclear submarine service, Mr. Gillispie started working in the commercial nuclear energy business.
During his exemplary career, Mr. Gillispie has personally overseen the permitting and construction of 12 nuclear reactors and directly assisted with six more. Moreover, he has managed and run as a senior officer seven U.S. nuclear reactors. As such, Mr. Gillispie has gained wide recognition for his outstanding safety and efficiency ratings or his charge with reviving dormant nuclear reactors.
Transforming the nuclear energy business, Mr. Gillispie has worked for Westinghouse, Duke Energy, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, and has in-depth experience with nuclear-related start-ups to include the INPO in Atlanta, Grace Glens Consulting in Virginia, and NMC in Hudson, Wisconsin. Of note: Forbes Magazine awarded NMC best in class renovation in 2001.
As a senior nuclear consultant, Mr. Gillispie has succesfully advised all 104 U.S. and many international nuclear energy staffs on improving safety and efficiency, and subsequently, has received numerous citations and awards for outstanding service, safety, and operating efficiency. A recognized expert, he has spoken in many international forums of nuclear power, including the international Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and the U.S. nuclear CEO conference in Atlanta.
Mr. Gillispie has earned a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University and is a graduate of the Senior Executive Program at MIT Sloan School of Management.
Commissioners, Mr. Don Gillispie.
MR. GILLISPIE: Thank you, Bruce.
Yes, Bruce. Thank you for showing us how important credibility is and what a great judge of character you are.
