his wife Barbara have for all things Native American, Western And Cowboy. Thomas calls
them the only really true Americans.Thomas's latest project is NAIStv the online broadcasting station of NAIS because his vision is that in the near future, almost all TV will be viewed online and through the net. Thomas is considered an expert
on conducting investigations, security issues, spying, spy history,
Native American culture and is an avid history buff and news junkie.
He resides with his wife who he calls the love of his life and his dogs who he treats like his children in
the Austin, Texas area.
"The human heart is corrupted by men of greed and with other hidden agendas. It's only the animals and dogs
we live on this earth with who have truely pure hearts. A man and a woman can best be judged by how they
treat the animal kingdoms we share this earth with and as a whole- that treatment by mankind is not very good
and God will some day be every human's personal judge on this! And therefore, in many ways, animals who walk
on this earth are much smarter and a higher form of life than us humans." -Ralph Thomas -2009

THIS IS SOME OF WHAT I BELIEVE AND I HOPE YOU BELIEVE IT TOO!
"Spying is the bravest and second oldest profession.
It involves a lot of smoke and a lot of mirrors. So does the oldest profession
and the two tend to have a lot in common.

"Native Americans are the only true Americas and tend to have a purer heart than the rest of us.
In fact, after what the rest of us did, they should hate us but most of them do not! White people
no longer trust their government but we should of already known better and got it! But then again, the rest of us are just cheap imports. All one would have had to do was ask a Native American.
History now proves that Goverments in general
seems to not exist to help others as much as they
exist to help itself." -Ralph Thomas, 2007.

What? Yea! It's True!
In Ralph Thomas's early years he was a Drummer in various bands in the Central Florida area including a band called The Cobras. The years was the late 1960's and early 1970's. His band played Beatles, Rolling Stones, Davie Clark Five, Ventura and Beach Boy tunes. This photo which was in a school yearbook is about all that physically remains of that time period but there was a time when everyone thought that Thomas would end up in the music business somehow.
