When the Prosecution is the Crime, and the Defendant is Freedom: Terry George Trussell Convicted and Taken Immediately into Custody (But What was Orly Taitz doing in Dixie County just before trial????)

Southern Constitutional Patriot, Common Law Activist, and former Statutory Grand Jury Foreman Terry George Trussell was found guilty of five of fourteen counts today by a Jury in Dixie County, Florida, and taken immediately into custody.  

As much as needs to be said about this event, a full legal discussion will have to wait for another day except for gross generalities and some random surrounding peculiarities and idiosyncratic events.

Suffice it to say, about the prosecution, that it was 100% a political show trial, initiated of the prosecutors, by the prosecutors, and for the prosectors designed to maximize their power as agents of “Big Brother” to control the legal system, in particular the so-called “criminal justice system” in the United States, against any and all claims of right by the people to have a say in social control through law.

As a curious but extremely significant aside (actually a complete “side show”), the trial was closely watched and broadcast by one of the nastiest bunch of lying Communist Sympathizing cluster of hateful sneering legal elitist bloggers in the whole USA, namely the Fogbow, which was cheering and cackling like a bunch of witches and warlock trolls for Terry’s conviction.   

I have been a particular target for the Fogbow crew of anonymous Goblins since 2009 when I participated in and supported the legal challenges to Barack Hussein Obama’s accursedly fraudulent candidacy and election to the highest “constitutional” office in the United Staes, perhaps the world.  

This group of bloggers (mostly establishment lawyers) claims that their noble purpose is to highlight truth and expose lies and deception in the “birther” movement, although they have moved on to attack so-called “Sovereign Citizens” and other constitutional grass roots activists who oppose the centralized state and governmental monopoly on legal process and thought.

Although ostensibly organized to ridicule Orly Taitz and her role in the “Birther” Movement, in effect the group has served to keep  a spotlight of attention on her activities which long since faded from the first, second, or even third page of news reports, and to criticize and attack all those around her.

For a while in 2009-2010, I was very much “around Orly” and I tried to assist her and inform and shape her legal crusade.  The professional side of my relationship with this Dentist-Lawyer-Real Estate Agent-Tai Kwon Do expert was fraught with constant conflict and argument over strategy, although she used some of my writings and took some of my advice.

Orly needed followers and she needed sensation, and she hated caution and careful reflection and would have no part of legal research…. this was strange in a lawyer trying to lead what needed to be the most sophisticated legal challenge against a sitting President in world history.  

But Orly’s need to make radical statements which her uneducated followers could cheer was paramount to anything else, and so in one episode in Georgia, she insisted on disrespectfully challenging the authority of a Federal Judge, and calling him a traitor.

Fogbow founding member “Sterngard Friegen” has been particularly hateful towards me for 7 full years now, and in this latest go round about the Terry Trussell trial, he accused me of taking advantage of  Orly Taitz’ naivetee and forcing her to file sanctionable documents WHICH I HAD ACTUALLY FOUGHT WITH ORLY TO PREVENT HER FROM FILING NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER LONG NIGHT.  

It seemed strange to me that he has always been so obsessed with me and so interested in defending Orly while ostensibly being her greatest critic…. how strange…. Anyhow, I had for a very long time now suspected it was all a show and a fraud, and apparently I was finally vindicated.

Terry’s lawyer Inger Michelle Garcia reported back to me today that Orly was IN CROSS CITY, DIXIE COUNTY, without ever having articulated any interest in Terry’s trial, and that she had revealed herself as one of, if not the primary force behind the Fogbow, as I have suspected from the very beginning.

Ah, the sweet taste of VINDICATIO!  Orly was not the “Queen” but rather the Court Jester, the “Clown Princess” of the Constitutional Eligibility Movement, aka “the Birthers” for the purpose of making the Constitutional Challenge to Obama’s presidency as humiliatingly stupid and ridiculous as could be…. and in this case, Orly’s strategy, performance, and tactics were all brilliantly successful, and the coincidence of her involvement with the Fogbozers in Dixie County is proof positive of this bizarre but brilliant conspiracy of ridicule and comedy as political attack and disruption.  

I am infinitely grateful to my freshman Anthropology professor Victoria Reifler Bricker for introducing me to the importance of ridicule in social control (her doctoral dissertation at Harvard concerned “Ritual Humor” as subversive political dialogue among the Maya of Chiapas under Spanish Occupation).  

From my beginnings studying at Vicky’s brilliant footsteps in New Orleans, I learned later from Sally Falk Moore, Clifford Geertz, Marshall Sahlins, and Valerio Valeri about ritual performances as “reifying” historical myths and “enactments” which prove and confirm stereotypical theories about human behavior which effectively become enactments  and pronouncements of law.  

I now realize more than ever the importance of so deconstructing the rituals of the modern courts, and modern propagandists like the Fogbozers, to revealing the truth about political process, and to make people free from illusion and free from the deception that such ritualized enactments create.  

The manipulative deceptions attempted and in fact achieved by the Fogbow perfectly exemplify the Cultural Marxist methods of Saul Alinsky and others.  These methods must be exposed and, to the extent possible, attacked and dismantled.   It is just sad to think that techniques originally evolved for the degenerates in the big cities have filtered down all the way to poor little Cross City in Dixie County, the least populous and most isolated of all of Florida’s  68 counties…

What is the Law? What are Laws? Is Law a matter of Contract or Decree? Agreements or Formulae for Disagreement?

Periodically, the question comes up, “what is the law?”
None answered this question any better than W.S. Gilbert, who wrote into Iolanthe an introit or opening number for the Lord Chancellor of England to sing, “The Law is the true embodiment of everything that’s excellent, it has not kind of fault or flaw, and I, my lords, embody the law.”
As a practical matter, it does seem that Judges just come down from on high and tell you, as the Lord Chancellor did, that whether they sit on a “supreme” or a “superior” court in a “circuit” or a “district”, they ARE in fact both SUPREME and SUPERIOR and they get to tell you what the law is, whether there is a jury empaneled or not.
But in reality, Law is FORMAL and ONGOING DIALOGUE about what has happened in the past and what ought to happen under a given set of circumstances in the future.  Law is first and foremost a dialogue about norms of behavior, and exceptions to those norms.
Up to a point, this is all you need to know: whether you are negotiating a contract in Birmingham, England, Birmingham, Alabama, Binghamton, New York, Bogotá, Colombia, or Buenos Aires, Argentina—you are engaged in a dialogue that will create a relatively “small piece of private legislation”—a new law, governing a limited number of people and circumstances, which is what a contract is—so take your job as a negotiating legislator seriously.  You are creating a series of obligations which arise from agreement.
You need to take it seriously because that aspect of negotiating new law is just about creating a stage on which to enact some kind of business or personal transaction which is important enough that you want its performance to be obligatory—you want to formalize the enactment of a transaction so that, if necessary, that transaction can be FORCED by society or some third party acting on behalf of society, if you need invoke such powers.  And the invocation of such powers has a whole bunch of other ramifications as we turn from the arena of transactional law to that of litigation (from agreement to disagreement) and then to resolution.  Every society, from the simplest hunter-gatherer bands to the United Nations, has some variation of all these formalized, some would say “ritualized” steps.
Anthropologists from Lewis Henry Morgan to Sally Falk Moore, and comparativist students of classical history from Numa Denis Fustelle des Coulanges (The Ancient City) to Georges Dumézil have been studying this question for two centuries now in the modern scientific vein.  Many modern anthropologists cite Clifford Geertz and by utilizing Geertzean analysis state that law involves the historically real enactment of mythic formulas (See, e.g. Marshall Sahlins, Historical Metaphors and Mythic Realities).  But the basic conclusions that law (or the related concept of “rule” or “rulership”, involving a series of taboos and their application to everyday life) involve a kind of “ritual” or series of ritualistic formulations for the enforcement of “social norms” concerning behavior.  This definition rarely helps people in any practical way.
In my opinion, and based on my experience, a practical definition of the law is:
“Law is the Practical Instrument to Implement Politically Formulated Policies”.
Peyton has been working for me for six and a half years and it took him a very long time to realize the truth here: Law from even 13 years ago may ALREADY be a relic of policies which no longer have political support or vigor.
In 1999, nothing like the mortgage foreclosure and eviction crisis that started in 2007-2008 HAD EVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN THE UNITED STATES.  There had never been a concerted National Policy, starting at the highest levels of government, to wipe out private property ownership.
        In short, in 1999 the Bush-Obama socialist-to-communist revolution had not yet started, although some significant legal groundwork for that revolution had been laid. For example, the notion that mortgage notes were a class of securities beyond the realm of securities fraud regulation goes all the way back to the Supreme Court’s adoption of the Second Circuit’s “Judicially Crafted List of Exceptions” in 1990. Reves v Ernst and Young, 494 US 56, 110 SCt 945 (1990).
      At the present time, it is pretty  obvious that the Courts have their marching orders about the need to throw a bone to particularly active and loud people here and there while absolutely wiping out 99% of the homeownership in favor of rental—BY the government/banks/financial interests FOR the government/banks/financial interests.
        Because I believe in maintaining private property, against the banks, against confiscatory taxation, if necessary by violent revolution, I have no compunction about fighting FOR adverse possession anytime and all the time, but we have to realize we have to come up with MUCH better and newer arguments than tired rehearsals of the current deviations from the common law.  The communists in Government and Banking WANT to abolish the common law—that is THEIR POLICY.
        And that’s why, as I have told you all, I am looking to new theories such as the Writ of Amparo and Anti-trust/Price Fixing—to catch the Powers that Be Offguard and to force them to eat their own words and choke on them.
The most sophisticated judges on the modern U.S. Courts have been asserting repeatedly the need to draw on Foreign Law as a resource INSTEAD of merely rehashing the common law and the common law—so let’s make them explain why we shouldn’t have the Writ of Amparo in the USA.
        Socialist commentators have been criticizing the government for not using the Antitrust and Securities Laws to enable the government to take over more companies and businesses, so why not use these same Antitrust and Securities Laws to enable THE PEOPLE to take over more companies, properties, and businesses AGAINST the totalitarian creep of government?
           If the United States Constitution be treated as a very important, nearly sacred, contract on how to make law, for example, are Executive Orders “Law”?  What force and effect, if any, should they have?  Because such orders are nowhere specified or allowed in the Constitution.  So what aspect of the Constitutional Contract permits “legislation” by Decree?  06-02-1952 Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co v Sawyer 343 US 579 72 SCt 363 SCOTUS May-June 1952.  And what is the remedy when even Congress agrees that the President has powers beyond those authorized in the Constitution?
         If anybody wants to see me I’m back IN LA at least for this weekend and Peyton is on his way back to Texas.
