The Sentencing of Joe Robertson

The Sentencing of Joe Robertson

Jason Van Tatenhove

This has been a hard piece for me to write. I have rewritten it several times since last week in an attempt to do the justice to this story that the federal court system would not. I have decided to not just try and put forward objective unemotional facts in my writing anymore. Emotions and experience have always been the foundation of every expression I have created whether that be writing for the Oath Keepers, video work, or even doing talk radio. If you look up the definition of Gonzo journalism (while cutting out the drug soaked, prankish preconceptions we have from Dr. Hunter S. Thompson,) it is as follows:

 

Gonzo journalism is a style of journalism that is written without claims of objectivity, often including the reporter as part of the story via a first-person narrative. The word “gonzo” is believed to have been first used in 1970 to describe an article by Hunter S. Thompson, who later popularized the style. It is an energetic first-person participatory writing style in which the author is a protagonist, and it draws its power from a combination of social critique and self-satire.[1] It has since been applied to other subjective artistic endeavors.

 

I feel that when dealing with the experiences and emotions that surround the Liberty Movement, it takes an emotional point of reference to adequately portray these experiences. These are the stories of people just like you and me that have, more often than not, lost everything due to their interactions with the powers that be.  We need to keep this frame of reference in order to know just what they are going through.

 

So here is my experience as it relates to the Sentencing of Joe Robertson.

 

My daughter Lux and I began our journey to the Federal Court House in Missoula, Montana last Tuesday. Lux is always begging me to come with to the events that I cover. But I will not allow her to come to anything that has the potential to turn dangerous. As I had spoken to most of the organizers for the protest that was scheduled to go on before Joe’s sentencing, I knew that it was planned to be a very peaceful and solemn event. I thought it would be good for her to see what political activism was and how it relates to the exercise of our constitutional rights. I think that people were generally surprised by the fact that all of the protestors were unarmed.

 

We all met up the evening before Joe’s court date, at a cheap motel, a few blocks from the court house. It was warm and pleasant as we shared a meal cold cut sandwiches and huckleberry ice cream. We met new friends and were reunited with old ones. It had the feel of a family reunion on a road trip.

 

I am so glad that we were able to spend some time with Joe and his wife Carrie. I am grateful we were able to make some good memories before their nightmare truly begins. The fact that the next day, some very bad things could (and did,) happen to this jovial old man who shares the same love of dogs that my daughter does; that he and his wife would have their rights stripped away one by one,  (the right to freedom of expression, to self defense, to privacy, and so many more,) and could quite possibly lose everything including their home of over 40 years and Joe’s freedom is hard to explain to a 10-year-old. The difficulty was only compounded by explaining that the government can take this all away, did take this all away, and why would they take this all away? Not because Joe murdered anyone, not because he kept human slaves, or some other atrocity that one would expect for this type of sentencing, but because Joe put ponds onto his own property.

 

The Government is saying that Joe mislead the people, but the facts are, Joe owned the property until, through some shenanigans, it was sold from under him at a sheriff’s sale. This is something that Joe is fighting legally and is expected to win. The Forest Service property that Joe supposedly damaged, was the only road going up to his property. He widened out the road to allow his wife to get her wild land firefighting truck up to the property (they made their living and helped to fight community wildfires with this truck.) The other property they had mining claims to. It is also very hard to explain to my daughter why the judge, and even Joe’s defense attorney, would not allow the introduction of two environmental reports and the testimony of an expert witness that would have blown away the prosecution’s narrative. The reports that were completed by Geolex Environmental and Kagel Environmental LLC of Idaho. Both found that Joe did not, in any way, pollute the waterways of the the United States. I have scanned the Kagel Report please click here and read it along with a letter of introduction by Ray Kagel that was submitted to the Court but went unread and unheard. Everything about explaining this case is hard. It illustrates so well how backwards things have become. Though we didn’t need to look hard for evidence supporting just how far gone we now are. As we were in line entering the courthouse, a number of us noticed that on the second floor of the Federal building across the street, there was an open window and a darkened room where 3 individuals appeared to be taking all of our pictures and recording us on video and audio. It was hard to answer my daughter when she asked why they would feel the need for surveillance of a peaceful group of ranchers, families, and concerned citizens.

 

While we were in the courtroom for close to three and a half hours it became clear that the judge could call upon no finding of the Supreme Court or even the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to justify sentencing Joe as he did. Every single decision they have made in regard to the Clean Water Act and how it relates to Joe’s case has been left with a split decision. It is VERY hard to explain to my daughter how the judge can freely admit to having no legal precedence in this case and still destroy Joe’s life all in the same breath. And still admitting that his court was not the proper venue for this decision. But instead of declaring a mistrial or dismissing the case, he sentenced Joe to 18 months behind bars with 3 years of probation to follow. He stripped him of his rights and fined him hundreds of thousands of dollars. This case will probably go on to the Supreme Court. I hope and pray that we can bring enough attention to the plight of Joe Robertson and others like him to make a difference next time.

 

For now, Joe is under arrest and has not been given the option of bail. It seems that the prosecution felt strongly that the people that were there standing with Joe posed a clear and present danger and that if he were left to his freedom, a stand off might occur. Never mind the fact that Joe has always maintained he would never turn to violence in his plight, that he publically stated to anyone who would listen, that he didn’t want anyone to get arrested or hurt because of him. Never mind that he even spoke those very words to the judge and all in the court room, yet he was remanded immediately into custody. I’ll leave you with the last words spoken in the Court room that day. With tears streaming down her face Joe’s wife cried out to the powers that be “I hope it was worth it for you…You ruined my life as well!”

  1. so this is what talking does!!!!!! more surveillance upon GOOD Americans.. LET ME REPEAT THAT GOOD GOOD AMERICANS….. so that those who attended in support of our brother now will have files and cases opened up on them. YET we take another slap in the face and say let the higher courts handle this. I thought and someone help me please with the exact quote . i thought some one once said evil yes EVIL only prevails when GOOD men and WOMEN DO (“NOTHING NOTHING”).
    so here we are again and we will do nothing another dad , friend, son, loved one ,husband , AMERICAN gets put behind bars for what folks??????how many people do you think they have cases on that are next . i have rather had a brother / friend in our local church that is a federal Agent. the guy won’t look at me anymore, he won’t shake my hand he won’t even speak to my children or my wife. ya think that is because he knows things… I feel so sorry for our children thats all i can say . jason what happens to LUX and your beautiful wife when they come for you and they will . WHAT happens to our families guys when all us men are locked away or dead. oh yea our sons who are 5 , 10, 14, etc it will be up to them to protect our daughters and wives from not only muslim terrorist but the gov scum that brought them here as well as those tyrants that put us in jail. God help our families God help our CHILDREN and God help us as MEN that we yes we as the MEN of this NATION continue to say not now… GOD be with each of you because we are screwed.

    1. All I can do is keep on the path that God has placed me. Right now this is my part to play. I don’t have any of the answers to our problems. But I will keep doing what I can in getting the word out. I will continue to write and show the world my experiences as long as I can. I am just one man. I hear this a lot and I wonder what it is these people would have me do? I wonder what they themselves are doing?

        1. Your right my brother , I forgot him, out of respect i should of remembered Him…Im sure theres others I forgot . that WE CANT AFFORD TO FORGET OR PASS BY. Thoughts are with His FAMILY AND HIM

    2. This courtroom fiasco should have been met with 100 motor coach loads of well organized, properly funded, fully UNITED American patriot activists!
      This despicable criminal sentencing of Joe Robertson by the constitution usurping tools of Leviathan’s far left, should have been met with a well organized and overwhelming protest of peaceful but loud opposition.
      1. THE OPPOSITION MUST BE WELL LEAD; (=A very well communicated solid strategic plan),
      2. BE PROPERLY ORGANIZED; To help “insure” success for a very well planned “designated event” that was planned adequately in advance so that the absolute maximum numbers of participants could make a physical showing at said “designated event”……
      3. BE Properly Funded; Use every OK possible means, public announcement, private contacts, every personal social and social media connection that exits to let the world, not just the USA know that we are seeking large scale donations and funding sources for permanent funding of an OK with “”greatly expanded logistical competency and capabilities””.
      The unwashed BLM, Bernie Sanders supporters, and many other communist and far left-wing groups accept wages, transportation, clothing, housing, and supplies from George Soros and many other far left-wing funding sources (many are hidden or veiled from the public) or they would not be organized, funded, logistically supported and certainly not meaningfully mobile either!
      4. BE FULLY LOGISTICALLY SUPPORTED; Be properly and adequately funded (even if in advance by members), provide what is necessary to be properly equipped with the tools (protest signs, personal protection), for the specific tasks at hand, provide for proper housing, food, water, and transportation. (To assure mission success and to mitigate mission failure).
      Don’t ever allow for “”any of these details to occur haphazardly or without preplanning””, or your groups may fall apart in disarray.
      Force proper Managerial Organization into your system. Define the necessary tasks properly, then create multiple tiered levels of tested competent empowered leadership, seek out those with some passion for the tasks at hand. With many thousands of professionally trained members, we have much military and LEO talent waiting on the bench.
      Communicate with and engage “all people involved” through effective communication tools and means in order to properly impress upon them your workable strategic planning and do it with proper (adequate) funding.
      This is how great things get done and failures are mitigated..
      No venture, in business or personal that is worth doing,.. can excel without these components.
      We are, in my opinion only, “”nowhere near where we must eventually be”” in order to effect the necessary changes in the fiendish and devilish events like the despicable criminal sentencing of Joe Robertson by the constitution usurping “tools of the far left”..
      The POTUS, the horribly politically weaponized DOJ, and the politically weaponized progressive far Left-Wing Federal “dancing puppet” Judges today are WINNING 100%, and are most certainly overtly emboldened and encouraged by our completely ineffective and horribly underfunded and disorganized and openly “shamefully minuscule opposition” to the lawless constitution usurping and totally politically weaponized DOJ actions and the actions of the far Left-Wing Federal “dancing puppet” Judges.

      The actions of these Federal ass-clowns in just the past year alone 100% collaborates my assessment that Leviathan is prepared (preparing) to assassinate you, or pile HATE from the politically weaponized DOJ, and far Left-Wing Federal “dancing puppet” Judges onto any individual that dares to stand in the way of their land grabbing, money grubbing, constitution usurping far-left Progressive agenda’s.

      “Silence in the face of tyranny, is your consent to that tyranny”

    3. What you do not seem to understand is

      1) Those that serve within our governments have NO lawful authority over our property. The framers were well educated about property rights, what governments do and the ONLY authority those that serve within our governments lawfully have over our property is to tax us when we buy it at a reasonable rate (and I maybe wrong but I believe that tax money goes to the state) and to DEFEND it with us. That is their ONLY LAWFUL AUTHORITY. There is NO LAWFUL way they can take your property, with very few exceptions – one I believe.

      James Madison wrote a lot about property rights of individuals, all kinds of property rights, not just the physical: “It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated. The personal right to acquire property, which is a natural right, gives to property, when acquired, a right to protection, as a social right.”

      Thomas Jefferson wrote: “Still less let it be proposed that our properties within our own territories shall be taxed or regulated by any power on earth but our own. The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.”

      James Madison, Federalist 10, wrote that the protection of “the faculties of men, from which the rights of property originate . . . is the first object of government.”

      John Adams, “A Defense of the American Constitutions”, wrote “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If Thou shalt not covet and Thou shalt not steal were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free.”

      Notice that Adams is correct, that type of tyranny is exactly what happened here regarding this property and elsewhere throughout the USA. But most seem to not understand that this IS Agenda 21 in action, and that it IS unlawful here in the USA, that type of authority was NOT delegated to any of our governments – state or federal, but was retained by the people to make those decisions. Remember we are also not allowed to do things that can cause others harm.

      This is color of law, and treasonous actions on the part of ALL involved at every level. Think about it, if those officers that conducted the arrests were knowledgeable about the US Constitution, what those who serve within our governments can do they would NOT have assisted in any way as this also will bite them sooner or later. The same with the people who work in the various departments involved at every stage of this as it too will bite them on the lower anatomy sooner or later. All of these things occur because of a LACK OF KNOWLEDGE of the US Constitution. Some committed treason willingly, some are just ignorant – what is today called “dumbed down”.

      This is the WHY of a Militia to:
      — Enforce the US Constitution (SUPREME LAW of the nation) and each state’s Constitution (HIGHEST LAW of the state,
      — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
      — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
      — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

      This is why a Militia MUST be educated in the US Constitution and their state Constitution so that they can recognize wrongdoing and stop it.

      Others of the period on property rights.

      Silas Downer: “For if they can take away one penny from us against our wills, they can take all. If they have such power over our properties they must have a proportionable power over our persons; and from hence it will follow, that they can demand and take away our lives, whensoever it shall be agreeable to their sovereign wills and pleasure.”

      Edmund Morgan, “The Birth of the Republic”: the “widespread ownership of property is perhaps the most important single fact about Americans of the Revolutionary period. . . . Standing on his own land with spade in hand and flintlock not far off, the American could look at his richest neighbor and laugh.”

      St John Tucker: “The congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate, or interfere with the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it belongs not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people;…”

      “Constitutional guarantee securing to every person right of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property refers to right to possess absolutely and unqualifiedly every species of property recognized by law and all rights incidental thereto, including right to dispose of such property in such manner as he pleases.” People v. Davenport (1937), 21 C.A. 292, 69 P.2d 396.

      “The law subscribes to the king (in America, the people) the attribute of sovereignty; he is sovereign and independent within his own Dominion; and owes no kind of subjection to any other potentate upon earth. Hence, it is, that no suit or action can be brought against the king, even in civil matters, because no court can have jurisdiction over him; for all jurisdiction implies supremacy of power”. Chisholm vs. Georgia, 2 Dall. 419,458

      “The people, or the Sovereign are not bound by general words in statutes, restrictive of prerogative rights, titles or interests, unless expressly named. Acts of limitation do not bind at the King, nor the people. The people have been ceded all the rights of the king, the former Sovereign. It is a maxim of the common-law that when an act of parliament is made for the public good, the advancement of religion and Justice, and to prevent injury and wrong, the king shall be bound by such an act, though not named; but when a statute is General, and any prerogative rights, titles or interests would be divested or taken from the king (or the people) in such case he shall not be bound”. The People vs. Herkimer, 15 American Decisions 379, 4 Cowen (NY 345, 348 (1825)).

      Brookfield Construction Company V. Stewart 284 F Sup. 94: “An officer who acts in violation of the constitution ceases to represent the government.”

      “To say that one may not defend his own property is usurpation of power by legislature.” O’Connell v. Judnich (1925), 71 C.A.386, 235 P. 664.

      “Owner has constitutional right to use and enjoyment of his property.” Simpson v. Los Angeles (1935), 4 C.2d 60, 47 P.2d 474.

      “Right of property antedates all constitutions. Every person has right to enjoy his property and improve it according to his own desires in any way consistent with rights of others.” People v. Holder (1921), 53 C.A. 45, 199 P. 832.

      “Right of property is invaded if owner is not at liberty to contract with others respecting manner in which and terms on which his property shall be improved.” People v. Holder (1921), 53 C.A. 45, 199 P. 832.

      “Constitution of this state declares, among inalienable rights of each citizen, that of acquiring, possessing and protecting property. This is one of primary objects of government, is guaranteed by constitution, and cannot be impaired by legislation.” Billings v. Hall (1857), 7 C. 1.

      “Right of protecting property, declared inalienable by constitution, is not mere right to protect it by individual force, but right to protect it by law of land, and force of body politic.” Billings v. Hall (1857), 7 C. 1.

      “As general rule men have natural right to do anything which their inclinations may suggest, if it be not evil in itself, and in no way impairs the rights of others.” In Re Newman (1858), 9 C. 502.

      2) When a judge or the justice system goes against the US Constitution it is then NOT using the constitutionally REQUIRED “Good Behaviour” that ALLOWS them to remain in office. They must be charged, and like with ALL crimes of any type here in the USA they get their day in court before a jury. So there are things we can do because we are still a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. We can charge and remove the judge if found guilty. That is lawful, it is constitutional, and it is an action we should be taking. They were not delegated the authority to use England’s “Admiralty law” here in the USA. It is used as color of law here in OUR US courts by ignorant and treasonous judges.prosecutors, lawyers/attorneys, etc.

      Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 33: “…If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard [The Constitution] they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify….”

      The fundamental law, or constitution of a system of laws or principles which defines and establishes the organization of its government. St. Louis v. Dorr, 145 Mo. 466, 46 S. W. 976, 42 L. R. A. 686, 68 Am. St. Rep. 575. Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th edition (1968), West Publishing Co., p. 1251.

      “The authority of the organic law is universally acknowledged; it speaks the sovereign will of the people; its injunction regarding the process of legislation is as authoritative as are those touching the substance of it.” Suth. Stat. Const., p. 44, note 1.

      “The constitution of a state is the fundamental law of the State.” Ware v. Hylton, 3 Dall. 199.

      “What is a constitution? It is the form of government, delineated by the mighty hand of the people, in which certain first principles of fundamental laws are established.” Van Horne v. Dorrance, 2 Dall. 304.

      “Constitutional provisions and amendments to the Constitution relate to the fundamental law and certain fixed principles upon which governments are founded. Constitutions are commonly called the organic law of a State.” State ex rel. Halliburton v. Roach, 230 Mo. 408, 130 S. W. 689.

      “A constitution is designated as a supreme enactment, a fundamental act of legislation by the people of the state. A constitution is legislation direct from the people acting in their sovereign capacity, while a statute is legislation from their representatives, subject to limitations prescribed by the superior authority.” Ellingham v. Dye, 231 U. S. 250.

      “The basic purpose of a written constitution has a two-fold aspect, first securing [not granting] to the people of certain unchangeable rights and remedies, and second, the curtailment of unrestricted governmental activity within certain defined spheres.” Du Pont v. Du Pont, 85 A 724.

      “The constitution of a state is stable and permanent, not to be worked upon the temper of the times, not to rise and fall with the tide of events. Notwithstanding the competition of opposing interests, and the violence of contending parties, it remains firm and immoveable, as a mountain amidst the strife and storms, or a rock in the ocean amidst the raging of the waves.” Vanhorne v. Dorrance, supra.

      1. Yeah… ok cal you let me know when you magically get government to abide by that magic paper of yours.

        1. Jeff, that is the “regulated” (trained as the congress requires the military to be trained and educated in the US Constitution and your own state Constitution) M I L I T I A. That is you and me, him over there, her standing here, that group of people over there. Most are not trained or educated (pun intended).

          It is not magic, it is law which is what our country is. It was founded as a Constitutional Republic because when it is in writing for all to see, all would know that those serving within our governments are NOT “the” government, but put there – hired elected, contracted, etc – to do specific put-into-writing things.

          The magic is if you bother to read and learn the US Constitution, your state Constitution (be careful of those state Constitutions published online, many have been “re-written”). If you bother to see to it that your family reads it. Your friends read it. Etc. That is the “magic”, knowledgeable people.

          As JFK said at the Yale University on June 11, 1962:

          “For the greatest enemy of the truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”

          So ;earning the truth is most important so that the people understand what myths they are being fed for their daily consumption. If one does not know what those who SERVE within our government were given the authority to use then how can one comment on what is being done – one would not know if it is allowed or forbidden.

          If your neighbor came to you and demanded money yearly from you for you to live on your property, you would recognize that it is not lawful.

          If is OUR constitutional duty to not only know the US Constitution – a VERY short document; but to also know and understand our state’s Constitution. That is for the sole purpose of knowing what those who serve within our governments may, or may NOT do. You, me, everyone else allowed them to stop us from doing what we are to do.

          Read at least the US Constitution, try to see what it says if you have not already. What things are within the three branches, and what things are retained by the people? What duties do those that serve within a specific branch have? What duties do the named offices of a branch have assigned to them – and notice that it is assigned to that office or branch, NOT to a person. The person who serves is ALLOWED to use that authority for as long as they keep the contract and they take and KEEP the Oath required of them. Otherwise they do not have any lawful authority to do anything in our name. Dr. Vieira put it best here when he said:

          Thomas Jefferson: “The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny are] to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.”

          Thomas Jefferson:“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, And if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

          George Washington: “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”

          James Madison, Federalist 46: “… the ultimate authority … resides in the people alone”

          Thomas Jefferson: “The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”

          George Washington, “Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.”

          1. I applaud your enthusiasm. But realistically things won’t get better unless you sees to pay taxes, and are willing to shoot it out for not paying those taxes. I stopped paying income tax long ago. All I have left is property tax. Still trying to figure that one out.

      2. Leviathan’s left-wing serpents, the “”Federal overt constitution usurpers and defilers””, will NEVER be forced to stop overtly usurping and defiling the constitution “”with our mere stern words””. This would be dangerously utter fantasy.

        Quite the contrary;. Leviathans Luciferin plan for “SILENCING” constitutional Patriots going forward, is assassination, death, and Federal incarceration on an forward accelerating scale without due process or constitutionally legal process resulting in politically weaponized use of boldly illegal incarcerations.

        Because no large enough group in recent decades has ever been meaningfully willing to enforce the rule of law onto our “Federal and State employee law givers”, this has” emboldened and encouraged their GOD-(Lucifer)-COMPLEX narcissists version of absolute unmitigated constitution usurping lawlessness and power over their employers.

        Every single day longer,… that we choose to fail to unite and organize to STOP Leviathan’s Federal Serpents overt constitution usurping lawlessness, incrementally increases all of our difficulies of ever restoring sane, legal “CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT”.
        Most likely not without first watering the Liberty Tree.

        And it also encourages a now Luciferin Leviathan to take ever increasingly endless amounts of tax payer dollars, and to grow to ever more grotesquely bulbous in size and in girth.

        Our abject failure and grotesque unwillingness to maintain LEGAL control over Leviathan and our employees has now resulted in a very dangerous and potentially lethal disaster for all constitutionally conservative pro-law and order citizens that have all waited far too long to take proper meaningful action..

        YOU SEE: It now depends on what your definition of “IS” is.
        NOW it depends on what your definition of “CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT” is, is or is-not.

        Citizens unwillingness to get educated and unwillingness to get involved for decades,…. has created a vacuum that has been filled by America hating , border/sovereignty ignoring, Progressive Utopian Marxists that have STOLEN our Constitutional Republic right out from under our noses..

        “Silence in the face of tyranny, is your consent to that tyranny” .

    4. The time for talking is fast coming to an end when we will either become better men who do what needs to be done, or else we will be dead men. You all know exactly what I mean so don’t bother quibbling about it. This country is so polarized at this time that we will likely have a civil war no matter who gets elected President. It is what it is.

  2. hey Jason. what i said i did not mean any any disrespect my brother with regards to your family. listen my friend i totally understand what you said. and it is true as 1 person we can only do so much. i have done my part as well and continue. i was at the Bundy ranch as well as Sugar Pine etc. so please know when i say we gotta stand I’m willing to be there. my concern Jason is our kids your daughter my daughter my sons. i wish you were here with me as i write this with tears in my eyes. i am so afraid for their futures . they deserve so much to be free. i respect what you have done as well as others. you and i have mutual friends and I’m sure we could sit down and enjoy a beer and ribs together. i just often wonder what else has to happen. my heart breaks every day because of those that have been locked away. the kids that can’t see their dads the wives that are tired of fighting alone. i think about my kids my wife your daughter and your wife if it were us that were in prison or dead for standing for what is right. we have to stand together and say NO more. we must stop drawing a line in the sand and letting it get crossed only to draw another line. our kids future depends so much on what we are willing to sacrifice. again i know your fighting each day. i would also bet that you to in times of silence when no one else is around you to have shed a few tears and wondered when…brother my fights not with you it is with us as a whole. guys our kids deserve to be free. that won’t come by some other man thats willing to stand and sacrifice. its time we love one another families so much even as strangers that we say i want tommy kids to be free , i want Jason’s kids to be free as well as my own and we united and stand. We must come together no matter what we lose or give up. i can’t stress that enough. that doesn’t mean we have to be stupid in our tactics and ways we must be smart and determined in our actions. but for all of us who feel like what can i do i am only one man. we must not buckle. Jason i hope you and your family are safe each day i will begin to pray for you guys more. keep doing what your doing. its appreciated more than you know. i just can’t help but feel so hearty broken for the Robertson family , the Bundy Family, the Hammonds, Lavoys family, blaine coopers family whether they like him and Sanetlli or not they are our brothers bro. and so many other families we must really really unite. take care hopefully our paths will cross soon enough and we can enjoy lunch one Patriot to another and ill buy lunch my friend.

    1. I appreciate the clarification. Especially from someone that has gone and done their part as well. So often we (I) am criticized by people that do nothing more than complain from behind a keyboard. I agree with you whole heartedly. While I was at my friend LaVoy’s funeral and listening to his daughters that look so much like mine I couldn’t help to think what it would be like for my girls if it were me. My heart breaks for his family. Thanks for your prayers and support. I apologize if I went off half cocked. I look forward to the day we get to sit down and break bread.

  3. No bail? wtf? Pond building can get you prison term? This bastardized system of justice where courts are ruled by maritime, admiralty law and where common law and natural law are losing footing is a tar pit for the commoner . A man has no idea how to defend himself in this system especially against charges where the “state” is the victim and the “state” seeks to protect itself. Shouldn’t he have tried for a jury trial?
    Seems that we will have to use this circus against itself and it requires outside the box thinking.. An appeal should be in process right now and to get a new attorney. Too bad he couldn’t claim he was building a large open air transgender bathroom. he might have received a grant.

    1. “A man has no idea how to defend himself in this system especially against charges where the “state” is the victim and the “state” seeks to protect itself.”

      You sort of hit the problem. Only it is correct to say a man has no idea how to fight a corporation (STATE). There are two sets of laws one for the Government and one for the Corporation.

      We are being run by the corporation. I think it’s high time people start announcing their status. I do every time I can get to a public meeting. Remember the laws and codes are written in legalese. So the legal definition of a person is a fiction, an actor. And the definition of resident is someone who lives away from his permanent home. Example; I live in Montana but I am a resident for 3 months out of the year in New York. And finally how did the men and women become merely enfranchised?

      There is NO OFFENSE that can be committed by natural men and women until they do something that actually causes harm to someone or something. Being charged with a crime for “Offending the STATE ” is a commercial crime.

      So the best way MAN can defend himself is to outright declare that you are a non-resident, non-person, unenfranchised natural man/woman. If you are in court, you challenge the jurisdiction of the court against a natural man/women with out an injured party.

      We keep losing because the attorney’s first duty is to the court and not to their incompetent client!

  4. Well if the judge could find no legal reasons for the sentence, then who told the judge to pass the sentence?

  5. I am interested in hearing from Stewart on this ruling. Excuse me…. on this most recent tyrannical event. How about the local chapter of O.K.’s round up the posse and go arrest that judge? Preferably with the local sheriff!
    I have a hard time NOT getting discouraged with an organization that I belong to. More precisely, with US!!! What if I decided to arrest my local judge when he so OBVIOUSLY puts people in jail BEYOND his authority? Would anyone join me?
    All of us seem to discuss these events….. on and on and on. And ‘they’ just continue to do what ‘they’ do. Arrest and imprison us.
    We all KNOW that this man has done no wrong.
    Tuaca, has your method ever worked in one of these courts of tyranny?
    Yes, I know the story that ‘they’ are trying to provoke us. Relative to me, it is working. If I respond ‘appropriately’ as an individual, I probably wouldn’t make the local news as being anything but a crazy Viet Nam vet. But if there were a thousand of us, it WOULD make a mark in the consciousness of any American that can still think!
    Forgive me. I am NOT ungrateful to Stewart and all who contribute here. But when this comes to my county I am not sure as to how I will respond.
    The Nazis did not miss a step until people started killing them. The first responders did not do so with any knowledge that they would LIVE, they did it because they KNEW that it was time to do what was RIGHT!
    Yes, I AM running my mouth from the comfort of my home, but being comfortable at home is not always that comforting.
    I welcome those who are wise to counsel me and others like me. What does all the community preparedness amount to if the community allows this behavior?
    Sincerely,
    Robert D. Gubisch

  6. If you are going to claim to still be protecting and defending, then protect and defend. True oathkeeping is neither sustained nor completed by actions limited to omission.

  7. I recommend that people read Ron Ewarts article today at newswithviews…it mentions a wyoming rancher that the EPA got after..his fine(s) were around $37,500 per day…mounted up to 20 million…went to the supreme court..he won…this article has much in it of interest to read…direct website… http://www.newswithviews.com/Ewart/ron261.htm

  8. Reminds me of the movie where the POTUS asks an adviser what to do? The reply? “Mr President, the course of action I would recommend is a course of action I cannot recommend.”

    Perhaps the readers can cite the film this quote came from. Sadly, it seems to apply now.

    The only suggested reading to follow up is Sun Tsu “The Art of War”, and it’s offshoot advising the Vietnamese on how to fight against Genghis Khan’s invading armies centuries ago. Our founders fought a brilliant guerilla war against the British back in the 1700’s, against all odds and with a substantial American minority in support of British rule. Same as it ever was.

  9. I will say it again;
    This courtroom fiasco should have been met with 100 motor coach loads of well organized, properly funded, fully UNITED American patriot activists!
    This despicable criminal sentencing of Joe Robertson by the constitution usurping tools of Leviathan’s far left, should have been met with a well organized and overwhelming protest of peaceful but loud opposition.
