120311_War_on_Religion_t618

 

Now repeat after me …..”There is no war on Christianity … There is no war on Christianity … There is no war on Christianity” …Is it working yet? Didn’t think so. Then again how could it with the missiles of immorality being tirelessly lobbed at organized religion from the immoral minority who still don’t understand what values and principles are, let alone the values and principles this country was founded upon. In fact, until Obama usurped his way into the white house in 2008, the status of religious liberty as one of our most fundamental rights has seldom ever been seriously challenged which is understandable as few rights are as clearly codified in the Constitution as every person’s right to openly practice the religion of his or her choice without any state interference …or none at all. After all, proponents of religious liberty simply ask the right to have and exercise their beliefs; they don’t ask others to approve of them nor is anyone else’s approval necessary.

As recently as 1993 when Bill Clinton was President, a bi partisan group of lawmakers came together with a ‘live and let live’ ideal as its backdrop to pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in order to reiterate and restate this countries commitment to each person’s religious liberty… while also serving as the blueprint for most of the state’s own religious liberty laws. Hardly controversial it passed the senate on a 97-3 vote.

The Hobby Lobby decision shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone who has made themselves aware of the tralatitious interpretations of our Constitution for the last 200+ years. Our founders put a great deal of value in the role religion plays as a public instructor of important personal traits like integrity, virtue, and character. Conversely the lefts sudden desperate tack to the extreme left as demonstrated through their ‘worship’ of behavioral and lifestyle ‘rights’ … and attempts to obtain public validation and acceptance of immoral and unnatural behaviors at the expense of our society in general and social norms and a working moral compass have required them to attempt to greatly expand even their jaundiced definition of “Civil Rights” to include behaviors and not physical characteristics to protect an invisible class of people who can only be identified ….voluntarily.

The Left’s position is more Rousseau than Reagan and advocates adopting a simplistic view of religions role in everyday life: That the state is to determine where, when and how religious instruction and religious liberties are permissible

Movement liberalism is no longer a centrist force but in fact it is a mental disease. Its members are radicals who want to fundamentally destroy and transform the standing bargains and norms which have guided American society and politics for decades. In the ‘perfect” liberal progressive universe as the government’s power grows in the areas reserved for citizen-formation, it begins to supplant religion in that role. This diminished place for religion as a civic teacher leaves room only for religious believers that fit the state’s view of virtue, while rendering dissenters an annoyance to be placated at best, and a hostile force to be marginalized at worst. Where the community is concerned, however, there will be a civic religion with the goal of “binding the hearts of citizens to the State.” Citizens can maintain purely private religious opinions on matters unimportant for societal order, but to Rousseau, “the Sovereign is sole judge of what is important.” Dissent from the state’s goals cannot be tolerated.

Giving the state power to decide which lifestyles every person must validate is incompatible with respecting human dignity because it infringes on the very type of citizen-formation left to the individual conscience.

The Mindset Responsible for Turning SWAT Teams into Death Squads

527776_227448464060253_423137336_n

Many of you will remember an article I posted a while back about the “IRP-6” who had become the latest victims of a very corrupt judge in our very corrupt legal system. This judge ultimately sentenced 6 innocent men to prison terms ranging from 87 to 135 months for crimes they didn’t commit. These men appealed their convictions and not surprisingly the pages of the transcript containing the judges most heinous reversible errors had been lost and no copies of the transcript could be found…I could not make this up. Their appeal has gained some much needed notoriety and with it some additional traction by the investigation and opinions being voiced by retired federal court Judge H Lee Sarokin …most prominently remembered as the Judge who overturned the conviction of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter back in the 80’s.H. Lee Sarokin served on the United States District Court (N.J.) appointed by President Carter, and the United States Court of Appeals (3rd Cir.) appointed by President Clinton. He retired in 1996 after 17 years on the federal bench and now resides in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. Here is his thinking on the IRP-6 appeal …. and Let’s Hope He is Right!! (sorry to link you to the Huffpo)

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO DIG INTO THIS CASE AND THEN TO DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO SUPPORT THESE GUYS WHO HAVE BEEN LOCKED UP FOR WAY TOO LONG ALREADY …DO FOR THEM WHAT YOU WOULD WANT SOMEONE TO DO FOR YOU IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES!!

 Judge H. Lee Sarokin – Speaks Out on Missing Transcript Needed for Appeal in IRP6 case in Colorado

Defendants in a Colorado case, United States of America v. Banks et al., claim, in addition to asserting their innocence, that their Fifth Amendment rights were violated when the trial judge compelled them to testify. Following a jury trial, all six defendants (five black and one white), known as the “IRP6,” were convicted of mail fraud or conspiracy, were sentenced to terms of imprisonment ranging from 87 to 135 months beginning in July 2012, and are presently incarcerated pending appeal. They represented themselves during the trial, and although they were aware of their right against self-incrimination (and named themselves on a potential witness list), they contend that the judge compelled waiver of that right. Apparently the judge was frustrated by their failure to produce witnesses in a timely fashion, and they claim the judge said something that led them to believe that at least one of them had to testify in order to keep their defense open. The case is now on appeal. Usually out of deference to the circuit court handling the matter, I would not comment. However, there is one aspect of the case that intrigues me, and since the matter has been pending for a considerable period while the defendants languish in prison, I thought some general airing might be appropriate.

IRP6

Resolving the issue should be a no-brainer, right? Look or listen to the transcript; read or hear what the judge said and decide whether or not the defendants reasonably concluded that at least one of them had to testify. But here’s the rub. There apparently is no record or transcript of the conversation available to either the defendants or the appellate court. The advocates for the defendants (a-justcause.com), who have asked me to review and comment on this matter, claim that efforts to obtain the record of the conversation between the judge and the defendants on this issue have been met variously with claims that there is no record (the reporter missed the conversation), that it exists but is missing, that it existed but has been destroyed, or that “we have it but won’t turn it over.” They also claim that all informal and formal attempts to obtain that critical exchange between the court and the defendants have been denied either by the court reporter or the court. They advise that the relief was even denied in a separate civil suit brought against the reporter for the turnover of the transcript.

Because there is always a danger in these matters of hearing one side, I insisted that I be furnished with the government’s version of what transpired in this disputed exchange. The government’s brief (U.S. Answering Brief) summarily dismisses the claim by stating, “Because nothing in the record other than the defendants’ own self-serving assertions supports their claims of compulsion, the exact language used by the district court during the sidebar conference is immaterial” (emphasis mine). Roughly translated, the statement should read, “There is nothing to support the defendants’ position on the record, because there is no record.” It is an obvious concession by the government that the record before the court of appeals does not contain evidence of what the trial judge said to the defendants — which they claim caused them to believe that they had to testify or be foreclosed from proceeding with their case.

the-6-300x127

Although the defendants vehemently proclaim their innocence, I do not have sufficient information to comment on their convictions. But I have no doubt that whether or not they felt compelled to testify depends exclusively on what the judge said to them at that precise moment. To suggest that the court’s “exact language” is immaterial is ludicrous, particularly since the court and the defendants disagree as to what was said. CONT’D HERE

Jury Nullification: Why Every American Needs to Learn This Taboo Verdict

Sunday, 25 May 2014 10:56 By Kevin Mathews, Care2 | Op-Ed

Did you know that, no matter the evidence, if a jury feels a law is unjust, it is permitted to “nullify” the law rather than finding someone guilty? Basically, jury nullification is a jury’s way of saying, “By the letter of the law, the defendant is guilty, but we also disagree with that law, so we vote to not punish the accused.” Ultimately, the verdict serves as an acquittal.

imagesIJ2NECUM

Haven’t heard of jury nullification? Don’t feel bad; you’re far from alone. If anything, your unfamiliarity is by design. Generally, defense lawyers are not allowed to even mention jury nullification as a possibility during a trial because judges prefer juries to follow the general protocols rather than delivering independent verdicts.

Surprisingly, the Supreme Court has routinely agreed that judges have no obligation to inform juries about jury nullification. Paradoxically, jury nullification is permitted to exist as an option to all juries, yet this option cannot be discussed in most courtrooms.

A few years ago, Julian Heicklen handed out pamphlets to passersby on jury nullification to people outside of a federal courthouse. While the former professor was merely attempting to educate people about how the jury system works, he was charged with jury tampering. The prosecution labeled Heicklen “a significant and important threat to our judicial system,” but the judge ultimately disagreed and dismissed the case. Nonetheless, the fact that this case went to court at all shows how those in the legal system are willing to intimidate those who vocalize this loophole.

imagesS3A1991X

Jury nullification is undoubtedly feared because of its ability to upset the system. A jury that considers drug laws to be outrageous can nullify. A jury that is aware of the mass inequality in incarceration rates and believes a defendant was targeted via racial profiling can nullify. A jury that believes a harmless defendant is a victim of the prison industrial complex rather than a perpetrator can nullify. This counter-verdict exists so that citizens can right the wrongs inherent in our supposed “justice” system.

Of course, as the New York Times points out, jury nullification hasn’t always been used to “do good.” Historically, racist southern juries have nullified cases involving hate crimes and overly optimistic juries have nullified instances of police brutality, unwilling to fault police officers. However, if you agree that an informed jury can produce the correct verdict, nullification remains a valuable tool in the pursuit of justice.

Obama-Son-Roberts-SC

If you were like me and the rest of the clear thinking world then your jaw must have also hit the floor when you first heard that the Supreme Court of the United States of America had decided that Obamacare passed constitutional muster …as a tax? Then when you found out that it was Chief Justice Roberts who was the deciding vote you scratched your head and wondered how they got to him…did they threaten to kill him …or his wife …or his children? What did they have on Roberts? Well now we know…they threatened to take his adopted kids away because the adoption included some ‘extra-legal’ actions taken by Mr. Roberts… How does it make you feel to know that there is no one in the world who isn’t for sale? Roberts rode to Obamacares rescue again this week by refusing to hear a case that should have been a slam dunk for the anti obamacare crowd….Here is the Western Journalism story that tells us all about it.

JUSTICE FOR SALE…Why John Roberts (Likely) Is Protecting Obamacare…

On Monday, without comment (because he could not make a coherent one), Chief Justice John Roberts denied a request by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA for a stay in the implementation of Obamacare. The groups had made their application last Friday, arguing that since the bill had been declared a tax by the Supreme Court (with Justice Roberts himself the deciding vote), and it had originated in the Senate (the Constitution says revenue bills may not originate), the law was therefore unconstitutional; and implementation of Obamacare should at least be stayed pending further examination.

While there are other minor issues attached to the application that were also not addressed, the truth of the matter is clear: John Roberts will never do anything to derail Obamacare, no matter what arguments against it are brought before him.

IRP66

I think it was Friedrich Nietzsche who said that “man is the cruelest animal ” and every year or so a story comes along that reminds you of just how true that statement is and man’s inhumanity to man and the evil that dwells inside some of us… When catalyzed by greed and narcississm …the need for revenge can be all-consuming, and the results …devastating.

As I was reading the other day I stumbled upon a story that piqued my interest enough to start digging into it to get the background and fact check the original story. The people who are the victims in this story have come to be called the “IRP6.” http://freetheirp6.wix.com/freetheirp6#!

6 men….strong and devout Christians all of themk, have had their lives rudely interrupted and taken from them by a corrupt criminal justice system with it’s hand on one side of the scales of justice …driven by greed and uncaring about the ruined lives it leaves in its wake.

“When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable, the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer.” – Bertolt Brecht

When you see an injustice such as this taking place in every person’s duty to shine a bright light on it and say enough is enough because any of us could be next. I will let you read about this for yourself that I strongly encourage you to take some affirmative step to support these six men who are currently scheduled to spend the next 10 to 11 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit. Man’s inhumanity is truly the keynote of stupidity in power. At the heart of this corruption is a federal court judge and the law firm she used to work for and a sociopathic woman consumed with evil. It’s an interesting story and one that everybody needs to hear… So please help me with this and spread it to at least two other people… Remember you could be next.

THERE WILL BE FOLLOW UPS TO THIS …COUNT ON IT!

IRP6

HERE IS THE STORY

Beginning of IRP Solutions

IRP Solutions was established in February 2003 and began to heavily market its flagship Case Investigative Life Cycle (CILC®) software solution in August 2003 to major federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, including but not limited to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Justice (DOJ) and the New York City Police Department (NYPD).

The Impact of 911

IRP Solutions Corporation was formed a couple of years after the tragedies of 9-11 (IRP is an acronym for “Investigative Resource Planning”). This was a country in shock. We experienced the worst attack in history against our country on our native soil. Many of the events of that day and months that would follow showed gaps in the investigative processes of our law enforcement agencies, but yet there were no solutions readily available to address the need. Meanwhile, years prior to 9-11 the founders of IRP Solutions had begun development of a small stand-alone software application to be used as an individual work product for law enforcement.

That initial work was done under the company name Leading Team. Although the initial software developed by Leading Team was an enterprise-class solution, it was not web-enabled or capable of addressing the major gaps that were identified post-911 (i.e., Lack of ability to share intelligence/investigative information between law enforcement at all levels of government, etc.). The company founders knew that with a little hard work, they could develop a software application that could significantly impact our nation’s law enforcement operations. However, they didn’t feel that the current company name accurately reflected the new strategy. Thus, IRP Solutions Corporation was formed.

The Call from DHS: A Dream Opportunity….

In October 2003, IRP received a call from the Program Manager at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for an initiative that was called the Consolidated Enforcement Environment Initiative. DHS wanted IRP to conduct a web demo of the software solution that IRP had developed. IRP’s web demo was very successful and the company was asked to travel to Washington, DC to conduct a demo before a larger audience.

In November 2003, IRP travelled to Washington, DC to demonstrate their software solution before the DHS Consolidated Enforcement Environment Initiative team which comprised of DHS, FBI, Secret Service, Federal Air Marshals, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, TSA, U.S. Coast Guard, and Deloitte. This audience questioned IRP on the technical and functional aspects of the software. This was, yet another, successful demonstration of the software that IRP had developed.  Following the meeting, DHS provided IRP with “Eyes Only” documentation and asked IRP to begin working (non-contractually) on capabilities to meet certain federal law enforcement scenarios.

IRP Solutions’ Case Investigative Life Cycle (CILC®)

Although CILC software was considered the most promising, strong political winds from large entrenched competitors significantly slowed the sales cycle, which subsequently caused a cash flow crunch and aging debt related to the development of the software.

The RAID….The IRP Dream Becomes A Nightmare…February 9, 2005

The morning of February 9th, 2005 started like most days at IRP Solutions. Company staff began to show up for work. The day was a typical business day until unexpected guest showed up at the reception desk. IRP Solutions was being raided by federal agents for alleged wrongdoing. There were 21 federal agents at the front door of a business, that at the time, only had approximately 20 employees. A warrant was presented stating that IRP Solutions and its executives were accused of mail and wire fraud.

Let’s rewind a couple of years and set the stage for how all of this came about…..

In 2003, IRP Solutions (IRP) was established to develop software for law enforcement agencies. Through its marketing efforts, IRP became engaged with major agencies like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As IRP became more engaged with agencies like DHS and NYPD, there were more requests for modifications to the software. DHS even told IRP to “…put a federal face on the software…”. Agencies were sending very positive signals and continued to ask for modifications to the software to meet their respective needs. Because of the modification and customization requests from agencies, IRP management began to explore ways to meet the increased demand for software development. IRP began to explore the option of augmenting the staff with contract labor.

IRP contacted staffing companies and explained the dilemma of trying to meet the requests of the law enforcement agencies. Several companies did their due diligence and considered IRP an acceptable risk for executing a contract. There were several companies that chose not to team with IRP. Contracts were executed to bring on technologists to incorporate technical enhancements requested by the federal government and local law enforcement. The agencies were fully engaged with IRP to make enhancements to the software, which resulted in the need for IRP to continue extending its engagement with staffing companies. Consequently, the debt continued to grow.

In the meantime, in late 2004, DHS requested pricing quotes that exceeded $100 million. Additionally, DHS explicitly stated that they were working on the budget and needed the pricing quotes as part of their budget exercises. This was later substantiated by FBI interview documents in which a DHS official stated that they (DHS) were setting up a pilot project for IRP.

Now fast forward to February 2005…IRP business offices are raided by over 20 federal agents for alleged fraud and running a scam, accused of not developing software, but bilking staffing companies of millions of dollars. IRP was also accused of making up stories about customers like the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, NYPD, Colorado Bureau of Investigations, and several others.

There was no fraud or scheme…IRP Solutions was a legitimate business that incurred business debt.

A grand jury handed down a 25-count indictment in June 2009, charging the six with fraud in never paying $4 million or more the company owed to about 40 companies that provided temporary labor to IRP.

Dupree said, “The Christian businessmen built a small company that concentrated on developing a software application called CILC, which stands for Case Investigative Life Cycle. This software was developed to aid law enforcement in investigating a case through to prosecution. The necessity of this type of software was overly clear as the government indicated the main reason 9/11 can occur was because of the inability of government agencies to share information.”

“In other words, the FBI alleged that IRP Solutions did not actually have software at all, “said Dupree
