Perjury

The Campaign for Immorality

People don’t like to talk about America’s culture for the same reason that a man who just had a heart attack doesn’t want to discuss the double bacon cheeseburger he’s eating. He knows what he’s doing is killing him, but it’s easier not to deal with it. We’re in the same boat. Take the following examples of what our culture has become
* We treat success as an accident or a cheat while defending people who make bad decisions, who won’t educate themselves or who won’t work.
* We’ve allowed pornography to become so accessible that it’s practically universally viewed, even among teenagers.
* We love victims so much that people actually fake hate crimes to claim victim status.
* We celebrate losers and deviants by giving them their own reality shows. Meanwhile, Hollywood regularly portrays businessmen, Christians and soldiers as the worst people on earth.
* More children have died because of Roe v. Wade than were killed during the Holocaust.
* Marriage is falling apart and we’re encouraging that by pushing gay marriage.

vimmor
* Our universities reward Communists, terrorists and blatant anti-American sentiment with professorships. Those are the last people who should be teaching impressionable young Americans.
* There’s a whole grievance industry full of people who make a living claiming to be “offended” by things.
* Religion and morality are denigrated while nihilism and immorality are considered cool.
* Legalism has superseded morality and what’s “right” and “wrong” has become secondary to what’s “legal” and “illegal.”
* We’re the greatest, most powerful, most prosperous and most virtuous nation that has ever existed and despite all of that, we obsess over our nations faults instead of our achievements.
* Americans across the spectrum are being encouraged to separate themselves off from the larger culture and nurse grievances that barely would have been given a thought a few decades ago.

consequences
Yet, we’re told that we shouldn’t worry about any of these things because people have always worried about our culture and things have turned out just fine. Even if that’s so, have you ever considered the possibility that worrying about the culture and taking steps to keep it from getting out of hand is exactly what once kept it from going to the dogs?
Yes, there was a time when people worried about Elvis provocatively shaking his hips on stage and it’s easy to laugh at that, but wouldn’t we be better off if that was one of the biggest moral problems we faced as a society today? We don’t like to admit the ugly truth; we’re more educated and much less racist than we used to be as a society, but we are also morally inferior to Americans from fifty years ago in almost every other way that matters.
Many people believe Rome fell because of a decline in morals while the Soviet Union disintegrated because they spent so much money trying to keep up with Reagan that they went broke. Well, we have both problems going on simultaneously. Meanwhile, preppers have become legion. Billions of dollars are being held back from the economy because people are saving up in case there’s an economic collapse. Businesses are sitting on mountains of cash and looking to move their headquarters overseas. Many educated, informed people believe America is headed towards bankruptcy or runaway inflation not in fifty years, but within the next decade or two. If you’re looking for signs that this country is in deep trouble, there are red flags galore waving in your face.
But this isn’t just an economic problem, a spending problem or a leadership problem — although those are all concerns. It’s a cultural problem with our morals and what we value as a society on the most fundamental levels.
* In practice, our society focuses almost exclusively on the short term without thinking about the long-term consequences of our actions.
* We have a higher moral standard for the NFL than we do for our own leaders in Washington.

Church%20State%20signs
* We have a political party dedicated to the idea taking things from people who’ve worked for it and giving it to people who haven’t.
* We make little effort to assimilate immigrants into our society and instead, encourage them to embrace the culture they fled for the United States.
* We’ve stopped acting as if we have to pay back the money we borrow
* We treat the rule of law as optional, depending on who’s impacted by it.
* We believe our children can grow up in a moral sewer and still turn out to be fine, upstanding citizens regardless.
We’ve become so divided, so antagonistic, so morally separated that for the first time in over a century there are people asking hard questions how much we really have in common with other Americans. If you’re comparing let’s say a conservative from South Carolina to a liberal from California, the honest answer is “not much that matters.” Perhaps not even enough to hold a country together over the long haul if one group or the other ever became politically dominant.

WGHA8989CustomImage1222967
There’s only one way to change that and it’s to address the real sickness at the heart of American culture. That sickness is our newfound reluctance to address the moral health of our society. Over the long haul, we can’t thrive and we may not even be able to survive as a divided, degenerate society full of people who reward failure, resent success and live for the moment. Morality matters and if we forget that, our nation is doomed to descend into decadence, decay and perhaps one day, even dissolution.

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.

petition2

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

Don’t forget Part II Here The Missing Transcript Case Becomes More Curious —

and Part III Here –   “The Case of the Missing Transcript Solved!”

 

police
I found this great article on (or all the places to find a balanced article) Mother Jones. It talks about the carceral panoptic state we find ourselves living in today … give it a read …VP

From the workplace to our private lives, American society is starting to resemble a police state.

This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website.

If all you’ve got is a hammer, then everything starts to look like a nail. And if police and prosecutors are your only tool, sooner or later everything and everyone will be treated as criminal. This is increasingly the American way of life, a path that involves “solving” social problems (and even some non-problems) by throwing cops at them, with generally disastrous results. Wall-to-wall criminal law encroaches ever more on everyday life as police power is applied in ways that would have been unthinkable just a generation ago.

By now, the militarization of the police has advanced to the point where “the War on Crime” and “the War on Drugs” are no longer metaphors but bland understatements. There is the proliferation of heavily armed SWAT teams, even in small towns; the use of shock-and-awe tactics to bust small-time bookies; the no-knock raids to recover trace amounts of drugs that often result in the killing of family dogs, if not family members; and in communities where drug treatment programs once were key, the waging of a drug version of counterinsurgency war. (All of this is ably reported on journalist Radley Balko‘s blog and in his book, The Rise of the Warrior Cop.) But American over-policing involves far more than the widely reported up-armoring of your local precinct. It’s also the way police power has entered the DNA of social policy, turning just about every sphere of American life into a police matter.

The School-to-Prison Pipeline

It starts in our schools, where discipline is increasingly outsourced to police personnel. What not long ago would have been seen as normal childhood misbehavior—doodling on a desk, farting in class, a kindergartener’s tantrum—can leave a kid in handcuffs, removed from school, or even booked at the local precinct. Such “criminals” can be as young as seven-year-old Wilson Reyes, a New Yorker who was handcuffed and interrogated under suspicion of stealing five dollars from a classmate. (Turned out he didn’t do it.)

Though it’s a national phenomenon, Mississippi currently leads the way in turning school behavior into a police issue. The Hospitality State has imposed felony charges on schoolchildren for “crimes” like throwing peanuts on a bus. Wearing the wrong color belt to school got one child handcuffed to a railing for several hours. All of this goes under the rubric of “zero-tolerance” discipline, which turns out to be just another form of violence legally imported into schools.

Despite a long-term drop in youth crime, the carceral style of education remains in style. Metal detectors—a horrible way for any child to start the day—are installed in ever more schools, even those with sterling disciplinary records, despite the demonstrable fact that such scanners provide no guarantee against shootings and stabbings.

policeeee

Every school shooting, whether in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, or Littleton, Colorado, only leads to more police in schools and more arms as well. It’s the one thing the National Rifle Association and Democratic senators can agree on. There are plenty of successful ways to run an orderly school without criminalizing the classroom, but politicians and much of the media don’t seem to want to know about them. The “school-to-prison pipeline,” a jargon term coined by activists, is entering the vernacular.

Go to Jail, Do Not Pass Go

Even as simple a matter as getting yourself from point A to point B can quickly become a law enforcement matter as travel and public space are ever more aggressively policed. Waiting for a bus? Such loitering just got three Rochester youths arrested. Driving without a seat belt can easily escalate into an arrest, even if the driver is a state judge. (Notably, all four of these men were black.) If the police think you might be carrying drugs, warrant-less body cavity searches at the nearest hospital may be in the offing—you will be sent the bill later.

police-state-california

Air travel entails increasingly intimate pat-downs and arbitrary rules that many experts see as nothing more than “security theater.” As for staying at home, it carries its own risks as Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates found out when a Cambridge police officer mistook him for a burglar and hauled him away—a case that is hardly unique.

Overcriminalization at Work

Office and retail work might seem like an unpromising growth area for police and prosecutors, but criminal law has found its way into the white-collar workplace, too. Just ask Georgia Thompson, a Wisconsin state employee targeted by a federal prosecutor for the “crime” of incorrectly processing a travel agency’s bid for state business. She spent four months in a federal prison before being sprung by a federal court. Or Judy Wilkinson, hauled away in handcuffs by an undercover cop for serving mimosas without a license to the customers in her bridal shop. Or George Norris, sentenced to 17 months in prison for selling orchids without the proper paperwork to an undercover federal agent.

Increasingly, basic economic transactions are being policed under the purview of criminal law. In Arkansas, for instance, Human Rights Watch reports that a new law funnels delinquent (or allegedly delinquent) rental tenants directly to the criminal courts, where failure to pay up can result in quick arrest and incarceration, even though debtor’s prison as an institution was supposed to have ended in the nineteenth century.

And the mood is spreading. Take the asset bubble collapse of 2008 and the rising cries of progressives for the criminal prosecution of Wall Street perpetrators, as if a fundamentally sound financial system had been abused by a small number of criminals who were running free after the debacle. Instead of pushing a debate about how to restructure our predatory financial system, liberals in their focus on individual prosecution are aping the punitive zeal of the authoritarians. A few high-profile prosecutions for insider trading (which had nothing to do with the last crash) have, of course, not changed Wall Street one bit.policee

Criminalizing Immigration

The past decade has also seen immigration policy ingested by criminal law. According to another Human Rights Watch report—their US division is increasingly busy—federal criminal prosecutions of immigrants for illegal entry have surged from 3,000 in 2002 to 48,000 last year. This novel application of police and prosecutors has broken up families and fueled the expansion of for-profit detention centers, even as it has failed to show any stronger deterrent effect on immigration than the civil law system that preceded it. Thanks to Arizona’s SB 1070 bill, police in that state are now licensed to stop and check the papers of anyone suspected of being undocumented—that is, who looks Latino.

Meanwhile, significant parts of the US-Mexico border are now militarized (as increasingly is the Canadian border), including what seem to resemble free-fire zones. And if anyone were to leave bottled water for migrants illegally crossing the desert and in danger of death from dehydration, that good Samaritan should expect to face criminal charges, too. Intensified policing with aggressive targets for arrests and deportations are guaranteed to be a part of any future bipartisan deal on immigration reform.

Digital Over-Policing

As for the Internet, for a time it was terra nova and so relatively free of a steroidal law enforcement presence. Not anymore. The late Aaron Swartz, a young Internet genius and activist affiliated with Harvard University, was caught downloading masses of scholarly articles (all publicly subsidized) from an open network on the MIT campus. Swartz was federally prosecuted under the capacious Computer Fraud and Abuse Act for violating a “terms and services agreement”—a transgression that anyone who has ever disabled a cookie on his or her laptop has also, technically, committed. Swartz committed suicide earlier this year while facing a possible 50-year sentence and up to a million dollars in fines.

Since the summer, thanks to whistleblowing contractor Edward Snowden, we have learned a great deal about the way the NSA stops and frisks our (and apparently everyone else’s) digital communications, both email and telephonic. The security benefits of such indiscriminate policing are far from clear, despite the government’s emphatic but inconsistent assurances otherwise. What comes into sharper focus with every volley of new revelations is the emerging digital infrastructure of what can only be called a police state.

impeach_obamac
There is a growing groundswell within American Republican and Tea Party ranks that impeachment proceedings should be initiated against President Obama on a whole list of violations of the Constitution and the War Powers Act. ~ Peter Paton

Congressmen Allen West of Florida (R-Florida) and Darrell Issa (R- California) have consistently and loudly criticized the president for overstepping the political mark and bypassing Congress’s approval on a whole range of dubious policies and issues: and the recent Obama attack on the Supreme Court of Justice and the Russian ” Open Mic ” gaffe on National Security, leads to one question…

Is Barack Obama making his own case for impeachment? Obama did not become the Democratic nominee for President without the help of several leaders of the Democratic Party who knew that he was not eligible for office

IMPEACH O

Listed below are the One Hundred Articles of Impeachment.

1. Appointment of a “shadow government” of some 35+ individuals termed “czars” who are not confirmed by the Senate and respond only to the president, yet have overarching regulatory powers – a clear violation of the separation of powers concept. Obama bypassed the Senate with many of his appointments of over 35 “czars.”

2. No congressional support for Libyan action (violation of the War Powers Act ). Obama lied to the American people when he said that there were no US troops on the ground in Libya and then later said they were only “logistical troops.” Obama violated the War Powers Act of 1973 by conducting a war against Libya without Congressional authorization.

3. Betraying of allies ( Israel and Great Britain. Obama has placed the security of our most trusted ally in the Middle East, Israel, in danger while increasing funding to the Palestinian Authority (Fatah, just another Islamic terrorist group) whilst they have enjoined a reconciliation pact with long-standing terrorist group Hamas and the disclosure of British nuclear secrets to the Russians in the Start Treaty. Obama gave missile codes to British Trident missiles to Russia.

4. Backdoor implementation of the DREAM Act which would grant 22 million illegals amnesty. Obama passed the Dream Act through an executive order, bypassing Congress again. DREAM is: Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors

5. Telegraphing troop reductions to enemies – against the consult of his experienced field commanders – while embracing negotiations with our enemy, the Taliban, and recognizing another, the Muslim Brotherhood.

6. Betrayal of Arizona. Obama brought a federal lawsuit against a sovereign state, Arizona, seeking to protect its citizens from this threat of mass illegal immigration

7. Obama’s Failure to enforce U.S. law, the Defense of Marriage Act. He’s stripped America of its moral base by his support for homosexuality and the attack on marriage between a man and a women Obama allows the DOJ to refuse to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.

8. Support of an inept and incompetent attorney general who has failed to prosecute voter intimidation cases (New Black Panther Party), initiated a dangerous gun-smuggling program (Operation Fast and Furious) – which resulted in deaths to one of our own law enforcement agents.

Obama allowed Operation Fast and Furious to occur, which allowed hundreds of Mexican nationals and Border Agent Brian Terry to be murdered with illegal arms given out by the ATF and DOJ.

9. Increasing the regulatory burden on American business through bypassing the legislative process with his executive branch agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration.

10. Failure to take the steps necessary to secure our borders and stem the flow of illegal immigration, termed as “repel invasions” in our United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 8 and Article 4, Section 4.

Obama has failed to defend US soil in Arizona as Mexican troops bring illegals and drugs into the USA, crossing the border doing so. This is a direct violation of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution.

11. Inappropriately commanding the release of strategic oil reserves and providing Brazil $2 billion for its offshore oil exploration.

12. Illegally soliciting funds from within the White House ($5 dinner video fundraiser). The unalienable rights endowed to us by the Creator; life, liberty, and the pursuit (not guarantee) of happiness – are being threatened by the Obama administration.

13. Taking on the Supreme Court’s power of judicial review with a preemptive striking against justices who might contemplate an unfavorable ruling on ObamaCare.

14. ”Open Mic ” gaffe in which he explained Russian President Dimitri Medvedev that he’d have more “flexibility” to sacrifice American security after his re-election

15. Occidental College Transcripts Reveals Obama Claimed Foreign Citizenship to Get Scholarship? http://tinyurl.com/czldzx8

16. Obama’s secret back channel Nuclear deal with Iran, a sworn enemy of America and our Allies

impeach-obama-dc-capital-afire

17. Obama’s offer of a seat at the table for our avowed enemy the Taliban

18. Barack Hussein Obama’s Ineligibility to be POTUS because he was born in Kenya

19. Obama and his Administration leaking previously classified information about our intelligence communities’ efforts to slow down Iran’s march to nuclear weaponry.

20. Obama destabilized Western Ally Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and allowed the Militant and Anti West Muslim Brotherhood to take over the Egyptian Regime, posing a mortal threat to our Ally Israel and our own Western assets and interests in the region. Obama instigated a revolution in Egypt against an ally in the War on Terror.

21. Obama has appointed Muslim Brotherhood advisers, enemies of the State, to the White House. Aid and comfort to the Muslim Brotherhood is TREASON per Article 3 Sec III of the US Constitution.. http://tinyurl.com/3x88l2s

23. Obama selling citizenship to criminals in direct opposition to Federal Law.

24. Obama admin assisted Egypt in remilitarizing the Sinai, “something forbidden by the Camp David Accords” http://is.gd/nDwdbl

25. Obama has attempted to compel religious institutions to pay for abortion services — a clear violation of First Amendment rights

Impeaching-Obama

26. Obama apologizing on 9/11 day to our sworn Islamist enemies, the Salafists, the same day these terrorists massacred the American Ambassador and three other American officials in the Benghazi Embassy, Libya. and ramsacked and looted the Cairo Embassy in Egypt.

27. Obama spending billions in aid on America´s enemies, while disregarding the needs of the US.

28. Obama is directly responsible for the many wars and murders of Christians in the Middle East

29. Obama has financially ruined this country, and his actions are leading to the demise of the dollar. President Obama is either an idiot or he is purposely trying to destroy the American economy.

30. Obama is hollowing out our military, and destroying our intelligence gathering capability.

31. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro deliberately concealed his true illegal background to be POTUS, TRUTH out: why #Obama records sealed FOREIGN student ID http://twitpic.com/aufduf Can we trust Pres. who games system – lies

33. #CANDYGATE Collusion with CNN Moderator Candy Crowley at the 2nd Debate to cover up BengaziGate The Candy-Obama Controversy : Get the Transcript’ http://amsp.ec/1P1Dyy

34. Obama’s Illegal Foreign Campaign money.

35. Obama Administration defining the Fort Hood Terrorist Act as a Workplace Accident, which gave succour and comfort to our enemies.

IMPEACH

36. The Border-gate arms deal offense that resulted in the death of a border patrol agent as well as numerous innocent Mexican civilians.

37. Suspected organized and widespread election fraud engineered by Agents of the Obama Regime at the November 6th Presidential Election.

38. Obama and unrepentant terrorist William Ayers misappropriated over 300 million dollars in donations meant for the education of Chicago’s minority students. They routed the money to Obama’s community activist buddies who then tried to turn the students in radicals. The program was a total failure.

39. Obama, as an Illinois State Senator, redirected tens of millions in Illinois tax dollars to Valerie Jarrett and Tony Rezko, to provide housing for low income families. They returned the favor with political donations. The housing units were built with cheap materials and labor and are uninhabitable after a mere 10 years of use.

40. Obama accepted millions in illegal campaign contributions from foreign credit cards after the credit card filters used to screen out foreign money, was switched off. This also allowed domestic donors, who were over the legal limit, to contribute more.

41. Obama attempted to move control of the Census Bureau from the Commerce Department to the White House, to be managed by then Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel.

43200039_obama_save_our_republic_impeach_obama_answer_8_xlarge

42. Obama had provided under the radar amnesty to illegal immigrants by allowing ICE Director John Morton to prohibit ICE officers from enforcing US immigration laws.

43. Obama allowed USAG Holder to ignore the violation of US immigration laws in the sanctuary cities, i.e.,San Francisco, etc.

44. Obama illegally fired the IG Walpin for investigating Obama’s buddy, Mayor Kevin Johnson (Sacramento), for fraud (850K) with AmeriCorps.

45. Obama is in contempt of Federal court for his illegal oil drilling moratorium in the Gulf…

46. Obama spent a month as the UN Security Council Chair in 2009, which raises the question of his conflict of interest between the US and the UN. This is also likely a violation of his Oath of Office as the UN conflicts with our Constitution on many levels, i.e., LOST, UN Small Arms ban, etc.

47. Obama signed an EO in December 2009 that allows Interpol to operate in the US without oversight by Congress, courts, FBI, or local law enforcement.

48. Obama and SecState Clinton misappropriated, er, used $23 million in US taxpayer funds to help Obama’s homeland of Kenya move to a communist nation where the freedom of speech, private property rights, and other rights are subservient to “social justice”.

IMP

This includes the fact that the Kenyan constitution adopted Sharia Law, which violates the basic human rights of women.

49. Obama was likely involved with then Governor Rod Blagojevich to try and sell his Illinois Senate seat, i.e., pay to play. Jesse Jackson Jr is under investigation for it and it appears that Valerie Jarrett might also have been involved.

50. Obama ran a website that asked Americans to report on other Americans, in the area of ObamaKare, using whitehouse.gov and taxpayer money to do so. He repeated this with AttackWatch.

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!

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

IRP663

Rarely does a day go by that I don’t see something in the newspaper, or on the news announcing the long list of felony charges belonging to the latest axe murdering arsonists let go by the Lane County Sheriff’s office. The culprit in every story is the same…”Released due to jail overcrowding caused by a lack of adequate and stable funding”.  Just yesterday, on the front page of the City County section of the Eugene Register Guard the latest bad guy let go was accused of throwing lit Molotov cocktails thru the window of his ex- girlfriend’s apartment (lighting the building on fire) then in his rush to leave, hitting several other cars and then a building before being arrested for DUII, Arson, Drug Possession and everything else they could think of.

“Wow”, I thought… “If they are letting guys like this go then there must really be a problem” …right? ….Wrong! Oh we definitely have a problem …no doubt about it. But the problem isn’t a lack of money or a bed …the problem is a complete and utter lack of responsible judgment both by the jail staff and the Lane County District Attorney’s office who appears to have agenda that places more importance on punishing men accused of domestic violence than in public safety. I don’t say this lightly.  
I have recently spent numerous hours on OJIN (Oregon Judicial Information Network) and studying the online jail roster and what I discovered was shocking, and I believe illegal or at least completely unethical. Here is what I found:
In addition to the obligatory collection of parole violators, drug addicts, murderers, thieves and sex offenders who occupy about 50% of the available jail beds…I was surprised to discover that the other 50% were taken  exclusively by men who had been charged, but not convicted of some combination of domestic violence crimes (Assault IV APA – Felony, Menacing (arguing), and stalking) …which coincidentally are the same crimes for which there is a glut of federal money available thanks to the billion dollar federal boondoggle called “VAWA” (The Violence Against Women Act).  There is alot of money in play through this program and Lane County is literally diving to the bottom of the dumpster to get their hands on as much of it as they can, and they are doing it at the expense of our Constitutional rights.  

“Oh come on … the people you are talking about are the people sworn to uphold the same rights you claim they are denying people…give us some specific examples or shut the f*&^ please!”
Imagine this: Ordinary legal citizens with no criminal record arrested in the middle of the night, thrown in jail on false  or grossly overstated charges never to see the inside of their homes again. Show trials with predetermined outcomes. Dissidents thrown into jail on the weakest of evidence. After they are arrested and jailed they are left there on “No Bail Holds” (denied even excessive bail) for 30…60…90….and up to 180+ days, all before they have ever been convicted of a crime. Does this describe the Stalinist purges? Totalitarian repression? The USA Patriot Act in action? Obama’s FEMA Camps? No this nightmarish scenario is the current state of Lane County’s domestic violence charging strategy and what it amounts to is a declaration of war on the Constitutional rights of men. 
In many of these cases, by the time the alleged perpetrator ever gets the opportunity to defend himself on the charges at hand ….he will have already served more time in jail than if he had already been tried and convicted.  Currently almost 50% of the county’s available beds are being occupied by men who have been charged with “Class A Misdemeanors” or “Class A Misdemeanors upgraded to Class C felonies  under some sort of domestic violence constellation of charges and are sitting in jail that no amount of money can bail them out of …seriously!
What’s sickly ironic is that their unlawful incarceration without bail is the reason that 90% of these alleged ‘perps’ plead guilty whether they are or not. After ‘sweating’ these men and ‘softening them up” with a 60 day taste of jail …without bail…and without being convicted of any crimes, the District Attorneys Office offers to let them plead guilty to one of the charges with a sentencing recommendation of ‘time served’ and tells them they could be released the next day. After being softened up for 60 days these men are willing to say or do anything to get out. By the time it takes the DA to extort a guilty plea out of them and they are finally released what they find is that they can no longer go to their home (or rent a new one), see their children, they have lost their job and their lives have been trashed. You want specifics? Here is a classic example using the exact facts surrounding a man who is currently in the Lane County Jail. This man has no criminal record whatsoever (except for traffic tickets)
This is the case of State of Oregon vs Johnson (Not their real names). The Johnsons are a middle class family. Mr. Johnson has no criminal record whatsoever and the Johnson’s have been married for 20 years, they have two children: a 13 yr old girl named ‘Elizabeth’ and a 14 year old boy named ‘Roger’. One night Mr. Johnson comes home and gets into an argument with his 13 yr old daughter which ends with her screaming “let go of me…you are hurting my wrists” which he had grabbed onto during this event to get her to stop flailing around at him and to calm her down. Since misery loves company his wife ‘Amy’ sees the last bit of this and jumps on the daughter’s side. They argue briefly, and Mr. Johnson brushes past her using his right arm to sweep her out of his way as he leaves the house. When Mr. Johnson let go of his daughter she immediately ran into her bedroom… shut the door… and called 911… I think you see where this one’s going … Mr. Johnson was arrested that night (Late February) and for the conduct described above he was charged with 3 Felonies and 1 Misdemeanor…Even though:
-No one got hurt. Growing up most of us were punished more severly (with a paddle) than the Johnson girl was.
-No one sought out medical attention…because no one was even close to needing it…and in fact refused any need for it to law enforcement.
This happened 2 months ago and Mr. Johnson, with no prior criminal record sits and rots in jail …on a “no bail hold”…2 months later while the Molotov throwing attempted murderers are out breathing free air? This isn’t just an isolated incident of extremely poor prosecutorial discretion…it is the same for everyone charged with DV. How is this even possible?

I am not saying that none of these men aren’t guilty (just Mr. Johnson?) …far from it. What I am saying is that it’s not the District Attorney’s job to charge convict and punish anyone accused of a crime …and thats what they are doing. Who needs judge’s or juries when you have DA’s doing everyone’s job for them? Oregon law is very clear that everyone accused of a crime (with very few exceptions) is entitled to reasonable bail that will ensure their attendance at trial and will keep the community safe. Here is what it says about who gets released on their own recognizance, who gets bail and who get’s held without bail:

Article I, section 14, of the Oregon Constitution, provides:
“Offences, except murder, and treason, shall be bailable by sufficient sureties. Murder or treason, shall not be bailable, when the proof is evident, or the presumption strong.”
Further, Article I, section 16, of the Oregon Constitution provides that “excessive bail shall not be required.” The provision from section 14 creates a right to bail similar to what was available the constitution was originally adopted. Knutson v. Cupp, 287 Or 489 (1979). Knutson sets out text from the mid-nineteenth century Deady Code, which, the court holds is instructive as to what the framers meant by Article I, section 14. The old statutory text is just about providing property to court, or a surety, in exchange for release. There’s nothing about giving up drinking, moving out of your house, not touching firearms or small children, or peeing into a cup.
ORS 135.255 provides:
Release agreement.
The defendant shall not be released from custody unless:
  • The defendant files with the clerk of the court in which the magistrate is presiding a release agreement duly executed by the defendant containing the conditions ordered by the releasing magistrate
OR
  • Deposits security in the amount specified by the magistrate in accordance with ORS 135.230 to 135.290. (formatting added.)
Notice that it doesn’t say anything about overcharging people and then denying them bail to soften them up to take any deal that gets them out. Mr. Johnson’s criminal history makes him an “I” and the severity of the alleged crimes on the “Crime Scale” (an “3-6”)


Even when the facts clearly show the man is not an abuser (and perhaps the woman is), prosecutors refuse to drop charges.  “No-drop” policies are a great publicity tool, and a way to ensure more funding.  Charges that would never see the light of day if they happened between strangers on the street (accidentally bumping against someone when walking by), are routinely charged as DV “assault.”  (But only if the man does it to the woman; a man can be bleeding from a head wound and he won’t be considered a victim).  

So back to the wholesale denial of rights currently happening in Lane County Oregon…The DA’s office has come up with a fool proof recipe for maintaining a conviction rate far above the national average for Domestic Violence allegations …and here it is:

1. For every domestic violence allegation …if the police are required to respond then the husband is to be arrested. The “victims” word is good enough to justify the arrest even if no physical evidence exists

2. Once the “abuser’ is safely in the Lane County Jail overcharge him and double charge him … never release him on his own personal recognizance and violate his right to bail by holding him without bail.

3. For his first 30 days of captivity keep him locked up in his cell for 22 1/’2 hours a day with no TV or reading materials …this will give him a chance to reflect on where he is and when he is going to get out and will soften him up for the coming guilty plea…

4. At his 45 day call hearing/settlement conference offer him the chance to plead guilty and depending upon the other factors offer to let him out if he pleads guilty to at least 1 felony and after he agrees make him sit for at least another week. Shazam the system has just created another felon!

Like I said above, this hasn’t just been happening in a few of the DV cases that are totally bogus …there are currently 33 men who have been charged with the standard DV charges of Assault IV (Felony) Assault III, Menacing, violating a Restraining Order etc. of those 33 men exactly zero have had a bail figure set or are otherwise bailable…If you lit your girlfriend’s apartment and building on fire in an attempt to kill her with a snoot full of alcohol and a pocket full of meth and hit a couple of other people / cars / buildings while you were trying to escape  … no problem …in fact don’t even worry about paying any bail at all they will just give you the ankle bracelet… but if your wife calls 911 and tells the dispatcher that she is “frightened by your anger” etc. then expect to be arrested and to be charged with DV, Menacing and others and don’t worry about coming up with bail money because you will not have any bail set for you until you are willing to plead guilty to something…

It’s time to stop systematic violence against civil rights and recognize that even well-intentioned laws can be used as a bludgeon.  Like the war on terrorism, the war on domestic violence can go too far. 


The laudable goal of ending domestic violence cannot justify nullification of the fundamental rights of an entire gender.  We should all be outraged at what is being done to innocent people in the name of helping victims. 

 

Remember …If you have to fight for your rights in front of a judge, you’ve already lost.

Everybody Knows One … Someone with a Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline Recruits Others to Lie and Distort
The BPD (short for “Borderline Personality Disorder” or “Borderline Person”) is likely to make extreme false allegations, distortions, and varied lies to defame and harm her or his targets. The BP is also likely to involve many other people in the distortion campaign. Many are passive participants who will listen and believe the BP’s lies. Others become actively involved in spreading them further. The target may find that there are dozens of people, many whom have never met him or her, who believe and repeat the lies of the BP.
Common Lies and Distortions
What lies do BPs tell? Often they revolve around false claims of partner abuse, child abuse, perverse sexual behaviors, drug and substance abuse, mental illness, and criminal conduct. BPs tend to pick false accusations that they can’t prove but are also difficult to disprove. Although we supposedly live in a society in which people are “innocent until proven guilty”, the reality is, that is not how people are treated. This is especially the case when accusations of sexual abuse, any type of sex crime or crime involving pornography, child abuse, and spousal abuse are involved. The goal of the BP is to conduct a distortion campaign in such a way as to cause his victim to be treated as a pariah or even criminal, assumed to be guilty without any evidence whatsoever…save for the allegation or innuendo of the BP.
The perhaps surprising aspect of many of these defamatory statements is that they are not about the target at all. Often BPs are aware at some level that they themselves are doing these bad behaviors. So instead of taking responsibility for their own problems, they blame them on others. This behavior is known as “projection.”
For example, an abusive BP male who is guilty of creating and promoting themselves as something they are not vis a vie a false online persona and/or record of accomplishments that are embellished will falsely accuse other people of the same thing…complete with manufactured outrage. This serves two purposes: to draw attention to the BP who is then viewed in a positive light by others and it causes people to think bad things about their target which gains him allies and a network of down line rumor spreaders. That is, so long as nobody hears the full truth before they’ve been effectively brainwashed by him and already developed a negative opinion of the target.
This may consist of 100% outright lies or by lying by partial truth and distortion. BPs excel at this. They are believed and seldom questioned because of their emotional intensity and conviction they exhibit while they repeat their lies.
Borderlines Have Trouble Knowing the Truth
BPs have trouble knowing what the truth is. This is due to a combination of problems. Sometimes they may experience cognitive dissociations in which they temporarily break from reality and may honestly experience reality completely differently from any observers, even video cameras will not agree with their version of reality.
Other times, it may simply be from their extensive pathological lying and avoidance of the truth. As a result, they may repeat their vilifying lies in varying inconsistent versions. The inconsistencies won’t be simply of opinions; they will be of even basic facts. They may have such trouble keeping their lies straight that they will come up with multiple versions of events, often growing in severity, over repeated tellings of their lies. Version one might be that somebody raised a hand to strike them, version two might be that somebody pushed them to the ground, version three might be that somebody tried to strangle them, and so forth. The reality might be that they slipped, fell and hurt themselves. But reality does not matter to Borderlines, what matters is the ability to convince other people to take their sides and to protect themselves from “threats” such as being alone or being held accountable for their actions. They will often times direct their disinformation distortion campaigns at anyone who speaks up in a positive way about the target.
Trouble Recognizing Borderline Liars
Why don’t people see the BPs who conduct distortion campaigns as the liars they are? The reasons are many. Often BPs tell varying lies to different people who don’t “compare notes” and so don’t see what should be really obvious deception. Often the BP’s emotional intensity and ability to play on people’s emotions makes them master manipulators. People tend to “just believe” because the BP can come across as very charming, warm and friendly. Untrained, uncritical listeners are particularly susceptible at being duped by their lies. Eventually, they may believe the lies so completely that even when confronted with evidence such as writings, photographs, recordings, 3rd party versions of events, and other evidence, they will refuse to accept that they were duped into believing lies.
Adverse Impact on the Target
What happens to people who are victims of BPD distortion campaigns? Here are some of the examples of the results:
  • They are alienated from their family and friends.
  • They lose contact with their children for months or even years.
  • They lose their jobs.
  • They spend tens of thousands of dollars or more fighting false accusations of the BP attacking them.
  • They have restraining orders placed upon them based upon false accusations.
  • They end up in jail or prison due to false accusations.
  • They develop severe mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety disorders, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and others.
  • Some commit suicide.
Distortion campaigns can destroy people’s lives, even becoming lethal. This is particularly the case when the people around the BP’s victim do not understand how Borderline Personality Disorder works. The victims of distortion campaigns need extensive support from others in order to survive such an experience without life-altering damage. Although an estimated 6% of the US population suffers from BPD, most people do not end up being targeted with a BPD distortion campaign. As a result, they have trouble understanding how severe, damaging, unrelenting, and widespread these campaigns can be. And many of the victims of distortion campaigns consequently are left without effective support systems and suffer far worse damage than might have been the case if their friends and family understood they are being victimized by a Borderline. The distortion campaign also tends to damage many people around the BP.

The damage does not stop with the immediate family. It tends to spill over into all relationships around the target as the target is accused of crimes, immoral and unethical behaviors, embarrassing incidents, and so forth. The siblings, parents, new spouse, friends, and employers of the target may all suffer serious damage from the distortion campaign. The target may be unable to function normally, have insomnia and other sleep disorders, not be able to work normal hours or focus on work, and even feel afraid to been seen in public. This may be a time during which those around the target have to band together to help the target in safe settings. However, by doing so, the target’s support system itself may become a new target for the BP. It is not unusual for the BP to proceed to attack people the BP sees as helping the target. They may endure distortion campaigns. As a way to protect everybody, it may be useful to minimize knowledge that the BP obtains about the people around the target. The target and those who support him or her may need to become very secretive about their lives in order to protect themselves from ever-widening and intensifying attack by the BP.

Borderlines Must Be Held Accountable
Borderlines did not choose to be mentally ill, but they must be held accountable for their actions. We must educate ourselves and others about Borderline Personality Disorder and act to keep people who suffer from BPD and similar mental health problems from harming others. It is in the best interests of everybody, victims of BPs, the BPs themselves, and all the people around them, for these people to be identified. Once identified, others can be protected from them and attempts can be made at getting them into effective treatment. Although today’s treatments may not cure many of them, they may learn to curb their destructive behaviors, hurt others less, and lead happier lives themselves. But that is not going to happen without awareness, identification, and willingness to tackle the problems posed by this mental illness.
