An open letter to Barack Obama, admonishing him for ascending the throne to rule over us all as subjects, chattel, and the new Amerikan Niggers; and for failing or refusing to acknowledge the common rights of all men for the purposes of exploiting ignorance and perpetuating collectivist tyranny.

From the decrees of the constitution there can be no appeal, for it emanates from the highest source of power, the sovereign people. Phoeve. V. Jay

The power of refusing to act

Synopsis

Do Away With Tyrants By Not Voting.".....deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...." How many people consider the significance of those ten words? I could write an essay on each one of them. It is disturbing to see how the Declaration of Independence is generally dismissed. There are areas of study involving constitutional interpretation, but there is virtually no discussion of the Declaration of Independence. Of course, the Declaration is not a legal document, but I posit that it is an organic document germane to the formation of the federal government, as well as all government. It is a philosophical proclamation. An averment to a state of nature, absent any external authority. It is a qualification and justification for certain people who wish to submit themselves to a form of governance as an expedient to preserving their natural rights......

More Anti-Statism: The Underpinnings of the State

Synopsis

La Boétie wrote the following essay while still a law student at the University of Orléans in the early 1550s. Gene Sharp, author of The Politics of Nonviolent Action, had this to say about it: "[La] Boétie's Discourse is a highly significant essay on the ultimate source of political power, the origins of dictatorship, and the means by which people can prevent political enslavement and liberate themselves. The Discourse should have a prominent place in the history of political theory, and also of the development of the power analysis in which the technique of non-violent struggle is rooted."

A day in hell with a Judge called Zina Cruse

Synopsis

On May 8, 2009, I appeared in courtroom 108 for the 20th Judicial Circuit Court in response to a Notice to Show Cause arising from a traffic ticket issued in 2006 by Collinsville, Illinois. The presiding judge was Zina Renea Cruse. It appears that this courtroom is for first appearances relating to traffic/misdemeanor. Judge Cruse called my name and I approached the bench. The judge then began to question me about the 2006 ticket, asking me how I wished to plead. I was taken aback, since the charge had been dismissed in 2006 by Collinsville, but the judge persisted in questioning me regarding the alleged ticket......Read More about my day in court with Zina Cruse


My experience with City Hall bureaucrats and a misapplied business license ordinance

Synopsis

A Collinsville resident and self-employed Information Technology specialist is concerned that the city’s business license program could be infringing on the personal rights of the city’s residents.

“I have no problems with licenses, fees, ordinances or any other legislation, provided that it conforms to the state and federal constitutions,” said Mark McCoy, who works in the areas of personal computers, web design, web hosting, networking, e-mail hosting, consulting, and technical support. “(But) I feel that the people at-large have become negligent in their duty to remain vigilant and thus have allowed the government, on all levels, to usurp their liberties and freedoms.......

Limited time offer to "government" for civil discourse over the so-called authority to govern me against my will (Offer now off the table)

Synopsis

 Well, there have been zero responses from ANY governmental body to my offer. Upon reviewing the server logs and inspection thereof reveals a number of agencies that have visited my site, but failed to accept my offer. I have had the IRS, DOJ, State of Illinois, and other lesser bodies visit my site, but aside from gathering "evidence", there have been no responses to my offer.

    Therefore, I have to say to any governing body or actors acting under whatever presumed authority, you time is up. I have made my point. You are cowards, liars, thieves, thugs, and despots. I am not looking over my shoulder waiting for you to move against me, but I am aware of you. Be advised, do not test me. You will be responsible for any resulting actions should you interject yourselves into my life. I perceive you as violent and unreasonable. I fear for my safety when in your presence. I will take any engagement by you to be an act of aggression, and I will act accordingly. If you wish to engage me, you are hereby put on notice to make clear your non-violent, peaceful intentions. Read More about the expired, and unresponsed-to "Limited time offer to "government".

 

Beaten and Tasered by so-called "police" for the City of Fairview Heights. Criminal charges, dismissal, and subsequent civil suit.

Synopsis

After over 5 court appearances all charges have been dismissed by order of the court. There were 4 hearings related to the challenge I made involving jurisdiction and no probable cause for the stop. I did finally get copies from the dashboard video from cars driven by Alemond and Nyman. After I received the video the cops refused to appear for the next hearing date which would have revealed the lies, misrepresentations, and fabrications in their report and how it does not match the video. I'll arrange all this information later, but I'm providing links to the documents issued by the court as well as my motions. Read More about my battle with Fairview Heights Police
