Update of the Greeley Murder charges. A whole lot of racism…

What's missing is the Standard 'conservative' Alt-White Extremists usual behavior of screaming and streaming and steaming about how we should deport, murder or imprison for life any and all of the people in the ethnic origin of the defendant... you know, somebody like SUSPECTED drunk drivers who have automobile accidents wherein the other person, the one who died, as long as the person who died is of Anglo Saxon Protestants and the other guy is NOT. Where's the outcry to deport, detain or decapitate any and all Anglo 'americans'? Explain why that isn't racism. A "mexican" with or without citizenship gets into a traffic accident and the Neo-Nazi Republican morons go all apeshit, foaming at the mouth, screaming like a monkey being sodomized with a shovel, demanding that all "illegal" Non-White people be rounded up and shot.Yes, killing people is tragic. That's not the damn point. I personally don't go around slaughtering  people even though the Yankee Government (ROTC and USAF) and paramilitary (Boy Scouts) conditioned me to do so.  Regardless of how much somebody needs to be put down. That's the domain of (not limited to) groups like the Tea Party, Minutemen, Military, Police, Judiciary, MAGA freaks, Ku Klux Klan, both major parties in Amerikkka, Nazis, You know the ones, they bray loudly about who they are and how much they hate everybody including themselves. I've learned that beating them up doesn't help either.  Hypocrisy, Thy name is Racism. White on White crimes far outnumber  any other Ethnic group on White crimes, but you won't get the racist pukes to admit that.

Just when you’ve supposedly seen it all… yes, it’s Trump again.

This will make the Alt-White people scream like a monkey being sodomized with a shovel.Trump promised to Make Ecology Great Again. It's like constipation... 'No Shit' I've a feverish imagination but don't inflict it on civilians. I couldn't make this up if I dropped all my scruples. And took a bunch of drugs. He said it while looking around at the California Fires, the parts where he could stand without being incinerated. Which begs the question, why is this bastard not in a cell awaiting justice? The guy contracted AT GOVERNMENT EXPENSE (taxpayers, not tax and draft dodgers like You Know Who...) to build a 'resort' meaning 'casino' in Puerto Rico and couldn't complete the task. Now, I know he didn't ever put his tiny hands to shovel, hammer or military rifle but he was The Leader/Boss whatever excuses for himself getting more money from 'his' projects than all the people who DID work on 'his' projects... Come on, this guy went bankrupt on CASINOS which are infamous for getting the last laugh consistently. Does any sane person really believe he should be allowed to give his infamous s..t midas touch to all life on our increasingly fragile world? it ties in neatly with the following paragraph. And in the past month he ordered the BLM to give federal lands to 'energy' meaning ONLY fossil fuels. What was quietly not discussed was and still is giving all the Tribal water rights, ordered by the Supreme Court when Roosevelt was president, as being the right and first consideration to the Tribes... 110 years ago and that's Teddy Roosevelt. So the Natives and everybody in America gets to drink mining and oil company waste forever. Trump has crossed a line I would never have thought possible. I could expect and explain it if what was tweeted had been said by somebody in the terminal stages of alcoholism.

Colorado Springs police win round one against socialists, convince local jury that free speech obstructs order.

CONVICTED! The March 26, 2017 arrests of socialist marchers finally came to trial last Friday. We were all found GUILTY! OF MARCHING! YES! Because that’s a crime in Colorado Springs. It's disguised as a misdemeanor offense called “Obstruction.” On the other hand, all four defendants were acquitted of the more serious charge of Failure to Desist or Disperse, of which we were equally culpable, if you consider the police dispersal order lawful. While a complete not-guilty verdict would have been more comforting, and of course just, the silver lining is that we can now appeal this decision to a higher court. Appeal Next time round, the judge’s prejudice, the prosecution's dishonesty, the police misconduct, and the impropriety of applying an obstruction ordinance to curb protest, can be reviewed by adjudicators with more authority, whose decision can set legal precedence. Though appealing to higher wisdom in Trump's America has become a crapshoot. The kangaroo aspect of municipal courts does get tiresome. Our railroading was well oiled so our court scheduled only one day of trial. Six to ten officer testimonies, plus ours, plus the various surveillance and body-cam videos, seemed sure to expend more than a day. We played along, hoping to spare the charade no more time than it deserved. We were also confident a jury could not fail to see through the preponderance of bullshit. Ours seemed a sympathetic jury with smiles and eye contact. They rolled their eyes at the police overreach. We sympathized with their having to upend their schedules to listen to the bullshit and so we wanted to hurry it along for their sake. We abbreviated our testimonies and our cross-examinations of the idiotic cops to spare the jury excess misery. At the same time we feared a contempt charge from the judge if our testimonies strayed into subjects the judge had forbidden us to mention to the jury. Like the Outrageous Governmental Misconduct. Censored topics The verdict should not have been a surprise. Earlier in the week the judge forbid defense attorneys from instructing the jury about the First Amendment. And so Friday’s jury had only to decide, were they out on the street or not? None of us disputed being in the street, which the prosecutors defined as obstructing traffic, therefore we were found guilty. Judge Kristen Hoffecker’s rationale for eliminating the standard First Amendment jury instruction, and prohibiting defense lawyers uttering the phrase “First Amendment Rights” was because prosecutors argued the charge of obstruction had nothing to do with free speech. But what charge does? If a law overtly infringes on free speech, it would be held unconstitutional. As a result, police and city prosecutors use tangential offenses to criminalize protesting. Obstruction is a local favorite. If police officers don't understand the First Amendment enough not to violate it, and city lawyers don't respect it enough to persist with prosecutions, and judges don't know enough to throw out abusive charges, are we really to expect common citizens sitting in the jury box to know where they're supposed to

Sovereign Bruce Doucette found guilty of organizing a jailbreak from servitude

BREAKING: A jury of twelve Denverites just found Pro Se defendant Bruce Doucette GUILTY of multiple counts of racketeering, organized crime deeds, etc, for the actual self-confessed act of telling off his betters. By whom I mean, the local officiates of a fraudulent entity which presumes everyone's birthright is slavery.

Judicial reform activist Bruce Doucette is next Denver sovereign to face joint FBI JTTF IRS & Colorado AG show trial

DENVER, COLORADO- Into the second week of the Doucette sovereignty trial you can't help but imagine yourself attending the burning of a medieval heretic. There but for a modicum more caution than courage go I.   Sovereign Bruce Doucette and his nine co-conspirators, who prosecutors allege constituted a "criminal enterprise", were saying what most know to be true about our nation's corrupt justice system. Their attempts to bring reform however sparked the fear and wrath of the targeted cronies, who now lash back with all the authoritarian muscle with which they conduct their misdeeds. Small surprise, obviously. That's why you and I are standing around the fire and not in it. But seeing the fire being fueled by the FBI, its Joint Terrorism Task Force partners, and Colorado's First Deputy Attorney General himself, onlookers dare not show sympathy for the heretics. If you think this is an exaggeration, you haven't been watching the Denver "paper terrorist" enterprise trials. Last December, the first two sovereigns were convicted of racketeering, conspiracy, etc, and given 36 and 22 year sentences. At their ages, that's LIFE. Two remain to be tried, including Doucette. The rest took plea deals and were given only probation. This was in exchange for being made to "renounce allegiance to the sovereignty movement" and "to cease criticizing" judge whoever. In constitutional days, criticism was free speech. And belief was a fundamental right. If you can reduce a prison sentence to probation by merely swearing fealty to the dominant authority, the real problem law enforcement has with these paper crimes is the First Amendment. Today Colorado is giving life sentences for heresy. Injustice Systemic corruption among judges, sheriffs, district attorneys, and petty bureaucrats is no mere conspiracy theory. Someone is filling America's booming for-profit prisons. Someone is enboldening cops to shoot rather than arrest. Who do you think is running the courts which prey entirely on the disadvantaged? In Montaigne's day, even aristocrats feared the courts. America's innovation was to ensure the legal system benefits the rich, while pretending to serve The People. And administered by clowns who swore an oath to the people. For laughs. Oaths Doucette and his sovereign reformers discovered that many of these cronies had become so brash, they had dispensed with the oaths of office which they were constitutionally required to make. More hadn't even posted bonds to secure said oaths. Bonds are mandated by the constitution to hold public officials accountable to their subjects over whom they wield disproportunate power. But Doucette & co soon found that pointing out the missing oaths and bonds fell on deaf ears. Bond-less, oath-less, unaccountable despots can simply bang the gavel and ignore you. While the more clever, if less principled, among us learn to exploit a crooked system, and the rest of us gnash our teeth in frustration, the Colorado sovereigns were foolhardy enough to take on the system with its own medicine. Liens Doucette and crew enterprised to serve official looking financial liens on the corrupt office holders, for monetary amounts corresponding to how long

Terry Maketa gets free pass on his crimes, just like every other pig EXCEPT…

...except for the piggies who had their cases tried in the Street Court. And got their ticket to Hell expedited. Soon or prolonged, they all go to Hell. I don't have to do anything to them, they gather their arrogance, murders and other crimes to their nasty little hearts, each day becoming more of a harsh burden, the weight of it makes their existence more onerous and as they're taking their last gasps of air, they know they are bound for their date with Satan. There will be their Satanic Chaplains Ed Maxwell, Donna Mills, Bill Winter, Gino Geraci, Jerome Nixon, Larry and Jan Loser, Robert Ofee, Manny Hays, Bob Paige, Bill Payton, Tim Shaffer, Carl Nelson II, all of them. any of  them, comforting the Pig's family with lies about how noble daddy or grandpa was and they're certainly in heaven and  they, the chaplains, are going to Hell with all the other piggies. Maketa and the paid-off "prosecutors" and judges will join their comrades in Hell, soon or many years from now. Maketa is a member of the local Minutemen militia, bunch of coward racist scum, the lot of them, used his badge to give the MM punks access to the police training facilities, had "his" deputies act as hit men by beating and sometimes killing prisoners at "his" jail. Publicly funded private "pleasure dungeon" just like his chickenshit butt buddy Arpaio in Phoenix. Corruption like that... Then during the Black Forest wildfire four years ago, he had the firefighters concentrate on HIS property and let his neighbors, who are supposedly "protected" by his department, well, their properties were left to burn. So yesterday his fellow Ku Klux Klowns at the El Paso Kounty Kangaroo Kourts once again let him get away with felonies. Pigs of a feather.

Standing Rockstar Red Fawn is seduced by infiltrator, set up with his gun, then urged by lawyers to cop a plea. What?!

I had a lot of fun at Standing Rock. The spontaneous resistance in Cannonball, ND, and the environmental movement it spearheaded, was for me the most inspiring uprising of 2016. My favorite memories were watching the ever increasing flow of distant tribal delegations make their formal running entrances into the main camp. Indigenous peoples came from across the world to join the largest NDN resistance gathering since the Little Big Horn. I was encouraged to see the keen interest of the international press and documentary filmmakers even though local and national media stayed clear. Standing Rock was also not all that it was billed to be. It wasn't going to be DAPL's Last Stand. The scene was dominated by patriarchal religious elders who stymied initiative, unity, and best practice at every turn. If it wasn't for the actions led by the Red Warrior Camp, maligned and disowned by tribal leadership, the gathered "Water Protectors" would not have protected or resisted a thing. Every media victory, every provoked outrage, and every setback for the DAPL was orchestrated against the orders of the official organizers, whose sabotage was abetted by the usual passivist NGO allies and their PC scolds. Reservation chairman Dave Archambault II turned out to be made of straw. When protest momentum threatened to become unstoppable, his agency-indian cronies capitulated to the USG. "DAPL Dave" as he came to be called, evicted the camp himself. (That's not Archambault above. That's FBI-informant Heath Harmon, who set up Denver activist Red Fawn. More on that below.) DAPL-Dave's true colors were known to Occupy Denver visitors to Standing Rock. Early on we stumbled into a secret meeting at the casino which Dave and his cronies held with the National Guard, the BIA, and state troopers. The forward North Camp, the only encampment which actually blocked the pipeline, was already being surrendered. Yes, back in September! We were ejected under the pretext of being non-native. Meanwhile real Native American activists were furiously searching the halls to attend or disrupt a falsely rumored press conference. Outside the secret meetings, the same cronies pretended to be the camp's champions and wielded all the authority. The counterproductive leadership edicts were laughable: No photos. Wait, what?! No 'isms. Yes let's throw education out with the bathwater. No activists affiliated with "Anonymous". Um, why? Women must wear skirts at the sacred fire. Hahaha in subzero weather! Camp needs: meat, wood. Unpalatable for environmentalists, also not sustainable. Another self-defeating hierarchy was the legal branch. At face value it was great to see lawyers stepping forward to offer their services. Their pitch was standard: you're on your own, use public defenders, but we'll provide coordination and advice. In practice they've proven to be a fiasco. The difficulties are being blamed on the ferocity of federal prosecutors and the hostility of racist North Dakota juries. Yeah, no. So basically, the narrative is still being written by defeatists. The hundreds of water protectors who face charges have had mixed results in

Israel blacklists activist groups which most threaten their colonial legitimacy

    --SAYS ISRAEL. Israel released its annual list of political orgs which pose the biggest threat to their Apartheid colonial project in Palestine. Except -- WHO DOES THAT?! Who gives positive feedback to adversaries?! Rather, this is a list of the lesser effective pro-Palestinian campaigns which Zionists would like to see draw energy from the international BDS movement. BDS is universally acknowledged to be Apartheid's existential nemesis. Hence the regular legislative attempts to make it illegal. BDS took down White South Africa. This BDS is the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign against Israeli Apartheid in Palestine.   Below is the official "worst enemy" list, which avoids mention of BDS except where the omission would not seem credible. The list is divided by hemisphere. Europe is made to look like BDS there gets only a smattering of support. In the US there's no BDS group at all, until you notice they've relegated BDS NATIONAL COMMITTEE to "other!" HAHA!

Activist Corey Donahue is free, despite supra-judicial ploys to halt his release.

DENVER, COLORADO- Occupy Denver veteran Corey Donahue was released from county jail on Thursday, thwarting two surprise court filings to keep the activist in custody for additional months. Donahue had negotiated a global plea deal to serve concurrent sentences for his outstanding charges of inciting public protests in 2011 and 2012. Yeah, those aren't crimes, but when you're an involuntary guest of the Denver jail, your stamina for disputing bogus accusations wanes with every bogus meal. Municipal court judges are as vindictive and perfunctory as the petty officials pressing the original charges. Engaging that crowd is not reciprocal, so it's especially unrewarding if it means enduring protracted incarceration. Having cleared his cases and completed the good-behavior obligations of a 9-month sentence for the nut-tap crime, Donahue was due to be released Thursday. But that morning, the Lindsey-Flanagan justice center activated an additional 2012 case which lawyers had been prevented from negotiating because the Division-3D judge withheld it from the docket. Neither private attorneys nor public defenders had been able to compel 3D to address that lingering case number. On Thursday the case mysteriously engaged... As a result, on Thursday Denver sheriffs demanded a large cash bond and they scheduled Corey for an in-custody court appearance the next day. When funds were rushed to the bonding office, an even larger bond was imposed for a 2011 case specifically stipulated to have been dismissed by the terms of Donahue's global plea. Can they fucking do that? No. And yes, everyday. Municipal court despots are not accountable even to their consciences. We've seen Lindsey-Flanagan chief justice Martinez confabulate on the witness stand in federal court to suit his duplicitous machinations, and his minions embellished on his lead. Usually their victims, locked in the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center across the plaza, are powerless to decline their sadism. Clearing up this clerical error would take until after Christmas, so it seemed more in the holiday spirit to give Denver their blood money and take the courthouse to task afterward, from the relative comfort of being out of custody. WTF.

CSPD Intelligence doesn’t have much

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO- Like the term Military Intelligence, "police intelligence" is an oxymoron. At least that's the old joke. Wednesday's hearing about the CSPD's undercover operation against the Colo. Springs Socialists reinforced the adage. The good news is that Metro VNI, that is, Vice Narcotics & Intelligence, doesn't have much intelligence, as in smarts, haha, OR constructive data. The impetus of CSPD's efforts to infiltrate local activists has been to track ANTIFA, a nefarious worldwide anti-fascist organization apparently. Lieutenant Mark Comte, who heads Metro-VNI, testified to what they know so far. ANTIFA members wear black and cover their faces. When protesters do that, they're Antifa.

Sovereign constitutional oath activist Stephen Nalty sentenced to 36 years!

DENVER, COLORADO- Judge Michael Spear came down hard on judicial reform activists Stephen Nalty and Steve Byfield, who prosecutor Robert Shapiro insisted "can't be rehabilitated." The quiet Byfield received 22 YEARS, and this afternoon, so-called ringleader Nalty was given a sentence of 36 YEARS. For insisting that holders of public office file oaths secured by bonds as required by the US and Colorado constitutions. Their victims, judges and officials who were exposed for having sworn no oaths, testified about now having nightmares about the public coming to get them with torches and pitchforks. Which is of course what ought to happen, now that the bastards have retaliated against critics who were only trying to bring them into compliance. The most severe remedy proposed by WE THE PEOPLE, the sovereign citizens organized to confront fraudulent office holders, was in fact resignation, or if necessary, banishment. Even so, the reformers were targeted by the FBI and its Colorado affiliates. A join anti-terrorism task force was deployed to infiltrate and entrap the "paper terrorists" who were then charged with criminal enterprise and racketeering, then held on quarter million dollar bonds. Now the two were given prison terms to exceed their lifetimes, ensuring both will die in jail. Because our system will not abide free men.

Springs municipal judge gives blessing to lucrative yet illegal I-25 speed trap.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.- Local municipal court judge Matthew Ramirez was presented with evidence today that the city is operating an UNJUSTIFIED SPEED LIMIT TRAP in the construction zone at the intersection of Highway-24 and Interstate-25. Though drivers are regularly cited for exceeding a 30mph speed limit, the posted speed does not meet the 85% compliance rule, nor the "pedal test" for enforceable speed reductions. Both are characteristics of improper and legally unenforceable "speed traps". Plus, it turns out, 30pmh is not even the minimum speed required to cross under I-25 before the traffic light turns red. At 30pmh it takes a motorist 8.75 seconds to cross the intersection from West to East. But the traffic light allows only 2.75 seconds! No wonder drivers don't want to slow down. Upon seeing the video, instead of calling traffic engineers to set appropriate speed restrictions and adjust the timings, Judge Ramirez instead put his stamp of approval on CSPD's very lucrative speed trap. YES, I got a speeding ticket. Haha. And yes, today I was found guilty. I'm not upset so much as disappointed that the judge made himself complicit with the city's scheme. I know that "speed trap" has come to designate anywhere that police monitor traffic speeds, sometimes in hiding, and issue tickets. But I'm not using the term in the general sense. "Speed trap" has a legal definition which describes a scenario where police are ticketing motorists who have been forced, by circumstances under the control of the police, to violate the law and thus become eligible to be asked to contribute to the local administration's fee based tax. "Speed traps" are abuses by law enforcement to maximize citation revenues without having to come across and apprehend offenders operating autonomously to local fundraising schemes. On August 31 of this year, I was clocked going 43mph in a 30mph construction zone. Except for a vague feeling that I had not been "speeding", I had no intention of fighting the ticket. I support the enforcement of speed limits and I accept that being pulled over is more or less a random hazard of going with the flow. No objection. But my recent attendance at municipal cases brought against activists has meant a lot of time spent in courtrooms where I couldn't help but notice that many, many drivers were being cited for the same ticket as me, crossing the same intersection, their fines doubled because it's a construction zone, almost all of them taking a plea. My decision to plead not guilty led to a fruitful survey of legal abuses perpetrated by our traffic courts; on the part of the city attorneys, on the part of the police officers, and on the part of the judges. It was worth the fight and I assure you it's not over. Hundreds, if possibly thousands, of motorists have been ticketed, and are still being ticketed, like I was. Unless they're riding the brake as they approach the intersection, they are considered speeding. Often, hitting the brake at that approach

Is Colo. Attorney General worried that Colorado River rights case will reduce Land of Many Uses to too few abuses?

DENVER, COLORADO- Do you know about the lawsuit brought on behalf of the COLORADO RIVER, suing the State of Colorado for interfering with its right to flow into the sea? It's a "Rights of Nature" initiative which suggests that if corporations can have rights, why shouldn't natural stakeholders? Although environmental entities have been granted recent legal protections by various progressive nations around the world, the Colorado team bringing the lawsuit is widely expected to be rebuffed. The court has already delayed the initial hearing where first arguments will be presented, but this week brought a surprise development that suggests that the lawsuit's defendants give the case better prospects. This week the Colorado Attorney General's office served a letter to the plaintiff's lead council, attorney Jason Flores-Williams, warning they would initiate sanctions against him if he did not voluntarily withdraw the lawsuit. Intimidating, but really a very good sign.

Denver used protection orders to curb mobility of Occupy protesters in 2011

DENVER, COLORADO- Activist Corey Donahue's 11-11-2011 protest case is still outstanding. The recently surrendered fugitive is charged with inciting a riot in the first months of the Occupy Denver encampment, when supporters crowded a police cruiser and began to rock it in protest of Corey's third arrest. Clouding this nostalgic look back at DPD's mishandling of mass demonstrations are the quasi-legal steps the city took to constrain the protest. It turns out Corey's felony riot charges were used to convince a Denver court to grant protection orders to two state troopers who considered themselves personal victims of Occupy Denver's assertive tactics. As a resut, Corey was prevented from leading demonstrations into areas when those officers were deployed, and he didn't know which those officers were. The measure was of dubious legality and so far remains shrouded in disinformation. Were two officers "seriously injured", as news outlets reported, in the so-called riot of Nov 11? Except for their official statement, no evidence was ever provided by DPD. What were the injuries and who were the officers? Can police invoke the protection of a blanket injunction to stop public demonstrations whenever they want? Can a police department enforce protection orders and pretend its subjects can remain anonymous? These are the questions which Denver police face as they push charges against one of their most outspoken antagonists. Can law enforcement officers unknown to a defendant file for restraining orders against the public they serve and protect? Can police require that ordinary citizens maintain a prescribed distance from them in a public space? Encamped on the grounds of the capitol, at the peak of an ongoing protest movement, Corey Donahue was in no position to push back with a legal challenge. Denver has since used an even more abusive method, designating “area restrictions” to keep active protest leaders out of places like the state capitol, Civic Center Park, and 16th Street Mall. DPD cite the arrestees' repeated arrests as justification. This probation stipulation may be applicable for criminal recidivists, in particular domestic violence abusers, but it is hardly constitutional when applied to free speech. Denver's practice hasn’t been challenged yet, for want of sympathetic plaintiffs. Giving police protection orders, to prevent specific demonstrators from assembling near police lines, would seem to fall in a similar category of judicial misconduct.

Who is this El Paso Sheriffs undercover infiltrator provocateur? We don’t care!

COLO. SPRINGS-- Lawyers for the city are fighting defense team efforts to expose who, how, when and why local law enforcement agencies infiltrated a campus political activist group. The 2017 undercover operation was revealed in CSPD bodycam videos, but city courthouse lawyers and judges are preventing the evidence from being made public. Alerted to the October 17 evidentiary hearing meant to shed light on the bodycam video, journalists and news crews instead witnessed stonewalling by city attorneys but made to look like a disorganized defense. They saw municipal Judge Kristen Hoffecker blame the defendants for not submitting to a sham proceding, when the judge should have confessed that the defense's subpoenas had not been honored. Today the city learned that our defense team went around them and served the subpoenas directly, requiring the responsible law agency parties to testify as witnesses at an evidentiary hearing on November 3. Now the city wants to use a November 1 status hearing to quash the subpoenas. What's the big deal? The city asserts the confidential identity of its undercovers is a stake. That is of course the least of it. The city's own evidence against the defendants, accused of marching in the street on March 26, 2017, documents police officers deciding to issue tickets. What's clear from the video is that the police issued tickets, not to cite wrongdoers, nor to halt law-breaking, but to 1) "identify everyone", 2) arrest an undercover agent, and 3) disperse a lawful assembly. It's all on tape. When defendants first grasped what they were seeing on the bodycam video, they brought it to the attention of the various municipal court judges who take turns directing the daily court matters. Asked to produce the written reports generated by the officers on the video but missing from the discovery evidence, the judges declined. Asked to subpoena the officers involved, the judges declined. After each defendant's pro se arguments were rebuffed, one motions hearing after the other, the defendants sought legal help. Actually Judge Hayden Kane II did eventually grant a hearing to look into the video, but he told us he'd already watched it in private and was not inclined to find it relevant, so defendants were not encouraged that his opinion would change. In the meantime civil rights lawyers were highly interested in the police activity documented by the video. They submitted 20 pages of argument for the dismissal of charges against the defendants, citing outrageous police misconduct in violation of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 23. They requested that the sheriff, the police chief, the commander of CSPD intelligence, and others named and unnamed, be subpoenaed to testify at an evidentiary hearing on October 17. That didn't happen, as everyone saw. The subpoenas didn't even go out. The October 17 hearing misfire was simply the latest of months of attempts by the defendants to bring this story to light. This time around the city wasn't given the chance to sit on the subpoenas, they've been served directly. On

City plan to snuff socialist infiltration hearing blows up in courtroom’s face

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO-- If you attended today's evidentiary hearing about the police infiltration of a local student group, you are no doubt left wondering what happened. Where were the defendants and why was the judge so angry? The outcome was not what either side wanted, but still it was a huge false step for the city. The defense was not provided the police witnesses it requested, but the prosecution was prevented from quashing those subpoenas outright. As a truant co-defendant, I had a unique vantage point on today's anticlimax and I apologize I was unable to explain it in person. Today's hearing, it turns out, was supposed to exclude the defendants. The review of evidence relating to the police infiltration operation was intended to happen outside of public view. The lawyers signed the setting slips, not the defendants, who were kept uninformed of the October 17 hearing. The judge had specified lawyers only, to keep the details and identities of the undercovers confidential. Can courts exclude defendants from their own hearings? Not really, but anyway. It turns out the judge wanted privacy because she had no intention of conducting the hearing at all. Without an audience to offend, this judge planned to summarily quash the defense motions to make police administrators testify and that would be the end of it. Objections be damned, let the lawyers take it up on appeal. Push this hot potato off a year or two. However, through documents obtained directly from the courthouse, the defendants did learn about the hearing. So the defendants made plans to attend the hearing regardless of a judge's preferences, and they publicized the event for what it promised to be, a scandalous exposé of CSPD intelligence overreach. Subpoenaed to testify were El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder, Colorado Springs Police Chief Peter Carey, Lieutenant Mark Comte of the CSPD Intelligence Divison, and Sergeant Clayton Blackwell, among others. Colorado Springs prosecutors did not inform the defense team that they had no intention of honoring those subpoenas. Instead they planned to motion to quash the subpoenas and truncate the hearing. The city attorneys did not file those motions beforehand nor give the defense any indication they were contesting the subpoenas. I can only surmise that the city prosecutors began receiving calls from the media about the anticipated testimony of the sheriff and chief of police, because it wasn't until late morning on the day of the hearing, after our press release went out, that the city emailed the defense team to say that "Sgt Blackwell is on vacation." Blackwell wouldn't be attending the hearing, they said, and by the way, his was the only subpoena delivered. To which I imagine our legal team said: WTF?! Now we needed a hearing to learn why the city thought it could unilaterally decide to whom to deliver our subpoenas. It's one thing to disrespect the rights of defendants. Our municipal court does it ALL THE TIME. Everyday, sadly. In fact, it's done it repeatedly to the very defendants in this case, before

Sorry, I am not your white person

Self dispatched race relations ambassadors who want to guilt their privileged allies to de-escalate activism efforts to make space for passive centrist wankery so long as it's led by spokepeople of color can stick their identity politics up their cap and gowns. Really. These academic arguments are socially engineered to divide the proletariat and deflect energies from converging on the racists with real power. It's like the schoolyard bully saying, you got a problem with my violence and enforced inequity? Take it up with your friend who has the lunch money to pay me off. Systemic racism is not remedied by redistributing oppression equally. We're already seeing cries of "white privilege" when non-black criminals are insufficiently brutalized. Targeting your fellow peons perpetuates the American misconception that progressive ideals eventually win over the power structure. If you must, scold the public at large, not your already activated comrades. Just because I have a sense of social responsibility doesn’t mean I'm going to be shamed into boosting attendance at your liberal reformist symposiums.

Why should you attend the Denver Nalty-Byfield ENTERPRISE TRIAL?

Why support the "We The People" public-oath sticklers who the state is prosecuting like a criminal enterprise? A few reasons: Solidarity. Because as hardheaded as they might be, defendants Stephen Nalty and Steve Byfield are still JUDICIAL REFORM ACTIVISTS. Sense of fair play. Half the courtroom gallery is filled with Colorado Attorney General staffers and FBI special agents chumming it up with jurors and briefing their THREE FBI UNDERCOVER WITNESSES while the defendant pariah side of the audience is warned by the judge that even a whisper will result in ejection. Thrills. Where else are you going to see this many federal agents pushing their weight around, barking at you in the hallways, swaggering gleefully about how much smarter they are than the defendants? Pathos. Come watch the Assistant Fucking Colorado Attorney General, Robert Shapiro himself, lead a team of prosecutors against the unrepresented defendants, watch Shapiro belittle them, lecture them, trivialize their difficulties defending themselves in jail, and pretend they can review "tens of thousands" of pages of evidence and "hours and hours" of undercover surveillance tapes in a single day. Because you can make a difference. Come push the FBI-guys' buttons. Come witness and document the abuses of the overbearing prosecution team. Come lend public pressure on the judge, whose conscience is already bothering him about how unfair this sham trial has become. Liens You don't have to agree with how Nalty and Byfield went about trying to reform the judicial system, but aren't they mostly right? Judges ARE corrupt. Local officials ARE NOT accountable to the people. Law enforcement WON'T pursue charges of their own corruption and the media certainly won't side with the reformers. When Nalty, Byfield and Co, served commercial liens valued at billions and trillions of dollar against officials who hadn't filed oaths of office, it was an effort of last resort to get someone's attention. No one was thinking, hey, maybe this eleven-figure dollar demand will slip through the cracks and the billions will be ours! Each lien was calculated to represent the sum defrauded from and owed to the American People. Prosecutors can tap these defendants for conspiring and racketeering and extorting and attempting to influence public officials, but they can't say the defendants aimed to obscond with one single penny. Throwing three undercover infiltrators at a twenty member judicial reform group, putting thousands of manpower hours into locking these defendants away, is gross abuse of authority and it's hubris. Authentic transgressions As the sham trial goes on, the pieces are coming together on the cases of Nalty and crew. It turns out federal investigators labeled them “sovereigns” because they’ve held themselves not responsible for paying traffic tickets, property taxes, and the like. In the end I’ll grant you Nalty’s group may be guilty of those. I say “may” because such citations may have been retaliatory for their political beliefs. As to the punishment, I believe adjudicators should take into account that the defendants acted not to enrich themselves, nor to flaunt the law per

FBI undercover rats on sovereign pals, says they planned to seize small county jails, except he was their lone soldier.

    DENVER, COLORADO- Very interesting testimony Friday at the trial of sovereigns Stephen Nalty and Steve Byfield. The prosecution's latest witness was FBI INFORMER Marshall Ringer. Not a sovereign citizen type turned by government agents, Ringer is a disgraced police officer hired by the FBI and inserted into the so-called "enterprise" to report its activities and propose courses of action conducive to arrests. Ringer calls himself a "self-employed security expert." His handler FBI Special Agent Ryan English calls him an "embedded confidencial human source". His targets gave him the title "Continental U.S. Marshall". They hoped he would recruit like-minded sovereigns to the cause of correcting what they saw as a corrupt judicial system. Ringer's FBI codename was "Earp". The accusations corruption hinged on the understanding that according to Article VI of the US Constitution, positions of public authority must take an oath secured by a bond. The "enterprise" had discovered that many Colorado judges and prosecutors and sheriffs and other elected officials didn't have oaths or bonds on file. If this expectation was indeed a misconception, and Article VI is inapplicable, you'd think the remedy might be to tell the would-be reformers, "no, that is not a requirement, here's why, etc." Strangely that was never done. Neither to their person, in a handout, or to reporters looking into this sad case. An undercover would present an excellent opportunity to huddle with the enterprise and say "hey guys, I was looking into this oath stuff and discovered that according to such and such law, or ruling or whatnot, oaths and bonds are no longer mandatory, end of story!" But "Earp" didn't. Nobody did. Nobody has yet to spell it out, even in this courtroom. When the defendants have tried to put Article VI into the trial record, they've been refused. So the issue is certainly a curious one. Instead of using an undercover to diffuse the oath-seekers by presenting the incontrovertible truth of their error, the FBI and the state prosecutors instead gathered evidence to ridicule their character. We're told they met in trailerhomes, they struggled to cobble enough money together to give their marshall a pair of handcuffs. They dreamed of putting together a network of De Jure judges to replace the corrupt ones currently alas De Facto. Tapes You might think the taped conversations of the sovereigns would be damning. The defendants certainly seem to be embarassed by them, but they're less incriminating than disarming. When "Earp" asked what was he to do with the officials he arrested, he was told, nothing, for now. Do not take any action on your own. Wait for instructions from the People's Grand Jury. Every time "Earp" goaded his colleagues about what he could do, they'd tell him to wait until matters could be addressed democratically and judicially. The most interesting information to come from the undercover testimony was about how the FBI wires up its informants. Colorado law requires that at least on person in a conversation consents to being recorded. As a result, every

Not The People v. Stephen Nalty and Steven Byfield. Right to an Unfair Trial.

DENVER, COLORADO-- The trial of accused "Paper Terrorists" Stephen Nalty and Steve Byfield began Monday in courtroom 2H of Denver district court. The two face 28 odd charges, from conspiracy, criminal enterprise, to racketeering, brought by the Colorado Attorney General and the FBI.   And they're defending themselves. In handcuffs.   Don't worry, they're holding their own. But already it's day one and authorities are piling on every disadvantage. On Monday the defendants were cheated of being able to prevent the state from stacking the jury (and the defendants don't even know it because they weren't in the courtroom to see it done). Watching the court clerks and lawyers prepare for the trial, you cannot but admire their civil spirit. In every hearing Nalty and Byfield have declined advisements and refused to recognize the authority of their adjudicators. The two sound like broken records about "oaths" and sovereign stuff, yet the judicial mechanism inches forward. It should of course, because the defendants have been jailed since MARCH. For six months Nalty and Byfield have been held on $350,000 bonds. Neither of them can afford even the interest on those sums. Of course their indictment and prosecution is a travesty and a misappropriation of public resources, but how else could the state stop their criminal enterprise except to admit wrongdoing itself? Nalty and Byfield are being railroaded and they're sure a jury will conclude the same. The People's Grand Jury For the last few years, among a team of eight "sovereign citizen" types, Nalty and Byfield have been serving judges and other public officials with legal papers and liens which achieved no response. Until Colorado's attorney general enlisted the FBI to squash the "criminal enterprise." The sovereigns face 28 charges of all the racketeering and conspiracy lingo, essentially for questioning why their local magistrates and officials had no oaths or bonds on file. When the sovereigns got no response, they formed a "People's Grand Jury" to indict the violators with their ad hoc public courts. Then they'd file commercial liens against those accused for defrauding the public in violation of Article 6 of the US constitution. When confronted from podiums, judges and lawmen dismiss the oath requirement out of hand, but it's interesting that none spell out exactly what law supersedes the US Constitution. News articles about the Paper Terrorists list the litany of criminal charges the defendants face, but have yet to mention the asserted law-breaking which is the Paper Terrorists' only complaint. It is hard to get a handle on what the "People's Grand Jury" really wants. In their dreams, they assert that the lack of filing of oaths should mean that all affected legal judgements should be overturned, and that all salaries drawn by government employees who did not file oaths or bonds should be returned to taxpayers, with interest. They calculate the total sum owed to the American people is in the multi trillions. So there's that. Some of the public officials targeted by the People's Grand Jury began to suffer strikes against their credit records when they didn't

Denver magistrate separates mother from breastfeeding infant. Jail refuses pump, as they do common decency.

DENVER, COLORADO- A heartbreaking scene unfolded yesterday when Denver Magistrate Kate Boland decided to impose a $10,000 bond on a domestic violence detainee, against the recommendations of the husband (victim), the public defender, and even the city prosecutor, who all wanted the 35-yr-old mother of five released on personal recognizance. Most critical, no consideration was paid to the family's month-old infant who is breastfeeding. Neither by Boland, nor the downtown detention center, known for its systemic disrespect for the rights and needs of its inmates. You might not care how poorly criminals or their children are treated, but the inmates of jails are suspects, not convicts. They are unconvicted detainees held on some officer's probable cause. They're suspected of a crime, but have a right to a fair trial (under the 6th Amendment) and a right not to be punished before conviction (under the 14th). Depending on who calls 911, they could be YOU. For those reasons (and the Golden Rule and the social contract), jails have to show a semblance of concern for the still innocent lives disrupted in their care. Denver's Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center has a famously outlandish record in that regard. Marvin Booker and Michael Marshall are two well known extremes to which Denver sheriffs deputies have disrespected inmates' lives. A rare survivor, Jamal Hunter, was awarded $3.25 million for beatings he received there. Unfortunately his settlement was contingent on burying the evidence of broader misconduct, thanks Jamal. Those cases have generated reviews and reforms, but abuses persist. Isn't it amazing that after repeated court-ordered overhauls, the public could still be told "the detention cenver has no protocols for breastfeeding mothers." Magistrate Boland made no allowance for the accused mother to maintain her feedings. After the morning hearing, friends learned the jail didn't care to accomodate the mother either. That afternoon Baby Thomas became ill and began vomiting, so the father brought the baby to the visitor's lobby hoping emergency visits could be arranged. The jail said no, though after some persuading, a sergeant agreed to convey a breastpump to the mother if one was supplied. A device was purchased and submitted, but the jail recinded their offer. This time a charge nurse named "Monica" explained she was under no obligation to comply, that she'd called her boss at Denver General who confirmed it. Without a court order, she said, the jail had no further responsibility. By now activists with Denver Court Support were agitating online about the plight of Baby Thomas. The jail was innundated with telephone calls. The sheriffs cleared the public lobby, cancelled visitations, and put the facility in lockdown in anticipation of a rally. Nevermind feeding Baby Thomas, release his mother immediately. Activists had raised the monies needed to hire a bondsman to post the bond. The jail was urged to expedite the mother's release once bond was posted. Shouldn't inmates be release when they've paid to have their freedom? This is where the Van Cise-Simonet's disrespect is arbitrary, punitive, and universal. Time to process inmates,

D’ya think ANTIFA might be a trap?

By all means shout down the fascists. Shout down white supremicists. Bash the alt-right. Do it in black bloc, if you must (and yes we must). March on, against, and over, capitalism. Declare yourself anti-fascist. Express solidarity with ANTIFA protests and counterprotests across the country. I would rethink, however, opening an Antifa franchise without knowing who elsewhere can now act IN YOUR NAME. No one owns the ANTIFA brand. Like "black bloc", it's a tactic, not a movement. Except as this moment's zeitgeist, the brand has indeed become a movement. The imperative to repudiate emboldened Nazis lacks for neither urgency nor legitimacy. Antifa is horizontal like Occupy, no leaders. Its membership is fully self-nominated. Except where Occupy Wall Street offshoots offered local casts of characters, Antifa participants remain undercover. The problem becomes whose undercovers. I fully support confronting fascists. I might quibble about picking fights with inarticulate Nazi cosplayers. Our corporations, the media, and the police who protect both are the full grown, authoritarian fascists. I likewise support black bloc as an essential strategy for effective protest actions. I encourage picking fights with dogmatic nonviolence passivists who continuously thwart the potential of public demonstrations. I support Antifa as I do Earth First, as I do ELF, or ALF the Animal Liberation Front, or Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Intifada if you're begining to catch my drift. I stand with them without wearing a mask because my expression of support is my political right. I do not act as them, wearing a mask. Antifa may be serving the establishment just fine by diverting youthful rebellion from directing its energy at STATE fascism. It may be suiting populist urges just fine too by allowing discontents to vent our disgust against punchable twits instead of the impregnable powers that be. Ideally those inclined to resist fascism will catch on to who really needs the pounding. When that begins to happen however, some Antifa chapter (the media will call it a "cell") in Reseda or Des Moines or Stuyvesant is going to commit an outrage of domestic terrorism and the Antifa brand will be blown. It may be government black ops conducting a false flag, or three percenters shy of a full load hoping to ignite a race war, or misguided revolutionaries jumping the gun. It won't matter. "Antifa" will be declared a terrorist organization. Pardon the pun, that will be trump. And while we know Antifa is not an organization, intelligence records will have mapped out who were the ringleaders and daredevils of concern to national security. Authorities may or may not round up suspected co-conspirators and charge them with racketeering. That's not even my worry. Once discredited and forced underground, Antifa enthousiasts will recede into the woodwork. All the organizing, educating and networking will have come to naught. I anticipate that my thoughts here are not going to find favor with my many friends currently marching behind the Antifa banner. But I know a number of idiots among them too, and worse, suspected moles bent on disrupting productive

Denver judge dismisses case against masked marcher who knew his rights

DENVER, COLORADO - US veteran cryptologist Jordan McDuffie was detained after last year's Million Mask March and charged with two counts, Obstruction and Pedestrian-in-the-roadway, for stepping unto Lincoln Avenue west of the capitol steps when DPD says the Anon- masked protester they believe to have been Jordan ought not have. Before his May 24 jury trial could begin and after offering increasingly favorable plea deals, the city motioned to dismiss the charges. Jordan, age 26, is a recently discharged vet. He was arrested at the march held every year in Denver on Guy Fawkes Day, Nov5. On November 5, 2016, after meandering about Denver's pedestrian mall, keeping to the sidewalk as small demonstrations are wont to do, about ten masked protesters stood on northbound Lincoln for less than a minute until cops arrived and the protesters left the street. One masked standee, not Jordan, was chased by officers up and down Capitol Hill but no contact or arrest was made. That marked the end of the otherwise uneventful, nonviolent 2016 march. An hour later, after a calm rally of speeches and singing, when everyone had left, Jordan and two vet friends were walking to their car and were jumped by Metro SWAT. Jordan and friends were pushed to the ground by approx twelve officers. One friend had his phone knocked out of his hands as he tried to video Jordan's arrest. Jordan cried out that the officers were injuring his war wound for which he was discharged but the brutalization continued. Two blocks away another participant, African American Kris Randolph, 32, was similarly arrested, in front of his mom. Both he and Jordan were jailed overnight. Without being told he didn't have to, Kris gave a videotaped interview while in detention. The two were released the next day on $100 PR bonds. Kris and Jordan were given Colorado state case numbers (16M10457 & 16M10458) which were transferred sixty days later to municipal cases (17GS000146 & 17GS000195), no reason given, except their 90-day speedy trial clocks started only thereafter. Both were assigned to Division 3H with Judge Kerri Lombardi. Kris, a roofer, father of four, with a minor criminal record, qualified for a public defender. Kris kept a number of court dates but eventually FTA'd at an April disposition hearing. Hopefully Kris can get back on track in view of how Jordan was able to resolve his case. Jordan represented himself Pro Se through several hearings. Right from the start Jordan submitted multiple motions, one asserting his First Amendment right to assemble in the street etc, another demanding expanded discovery to include the DPD “After Action Report” (AAR) for Nov 5, 2016. An AAR erroneously disclosed in a previous case revealed that 27 undercover officers had been deployed at the 73-attendee 2015 Million Mask March. Judge Lombardi did not agree with Jordan’s assertion that he didn’t need a permit to be in the street, but granted his discovery request. She commanded the city lawyers to inquire about an AAR. At a March hearing, prosecutors produced an

Oath-sticklers take the US Constitution literally

DENVER, COLORADO- These guys have been complaining about corrupt local officials and trying every which way to bring them to justice, even the people's own. Now the state is throwing the book at the accusers. The eight are in jail, unable to post bond, and getting no attention from the press except derision. They're being labeled "Paper Terrorists" but no one's explaining what they were doing, certainly not trying to enrich themselves. What kind of "criminal enterprise" is not for profit? Here's the front page of their indictment:

Forget Earth Day, apparently we have to save science, without which we wouldn’t have our environmental mess.

My sign read WE HAVE A POLITICAL SCIENCE PROBLEM because "science" is doing what it's supposed to, serving its masters. By which I don't mean politicians have coopted science. Repurposing science and technology to serve the people means an ideological challenge. Of course to anyone who's attended a US college, "political science" means nothing. It's a department that may as well be teaching underwater basket weaving to spiders. Absolutely useless and contrived. As neoclassical economics is to economics, which is all the US economics departments teach as well. To overcome capitalism will require a revolution first in US education, not genuflecting before the altar of science. Our "March For Science" felt like an evangelical revival, everyone sharing testimonies of how they've been saved by science, or the imperative to put our faith in science. As if it wasn't science that delivered us into the dire circumstances that require the human community to mark Earth Day. Conservation, not science, is the only recourse we have for better stewardship of the environment. That went unsaid. Also left unsaid by everyone except the socialists: scientists need to spend less energy making weapons.
