Rudy Davis and Mike Parsons Eye A New Proselyte for their Line Up of “American Political Prisoners”

…for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.  Matthew 23: 15b

I was listening to a recorded jailhouse phone call from felon Mike Parsons to Rudy Davis published October 6, 2018 at Lonestar 1776 under the caption, Mike Parsons Informs us about Michael Taylor WilsonRudy was preparing to give a speech at a church about his prison ministry, and at the 5.21 mark he explains,  “Let me just quickly say this Mike, the, I think we’re going into like a civil war, you know, issue where you have the state worshippers and the police supporters and you have the people who recognize the state for what it is, which is a tyranny and I got example after example after example that I’m gonna put in my speech…”.

Davis has only 10 minutes to give his speech…so what are the highlights of his prison ministry?

It was the next day, Sunday October 7, 2018, that Rudy Davis visited Fair Park Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas at the invitation of Senior Pastor Stephen E. Broden, to explain his prison ministry to the congregation.  (A longer sixteen minute version of this speech may be heard on Davis’ Lonestar 1776 You Tube channel, called What is Year of Jubile. com Prison Ministries?)

Although Rudy Davis’ prison ministry uses the Gideon Army motif, here he employs the painting of David cutting off the head of Goliath by Michaelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, to illustrate his prison ministry objectives.

Stephen Broden

In the past, Rudy Davis has referred to Senior Pastor Stephen Broden as his pastor.   Broden’s credentials can be found at this Wikipedia link, but of interest to us is one facet of his life, and that relates back to 2010, when he ran as the Republican candidate for the U. S. House in Texas’ 30th Congressional District.  Although defeated in that election, Broden remains outspoken and advocates “a return to Constitutional principles in government”.  According to the Wikipedia report, in 2010 Stephen Broken had been “accused of saying that the current federal government was tyrannical”, suggesting that “violent overthrow could not be ruled out if there was not a change in leadership….”.  So it appears that Rudy Davis and Senior Pastor Broden share the common belief that our federal government is a tyranny.

Rudy Davis began his testimony at this church saying,  “Peace and blessings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Thank you for this time today and a sincere thanks to Pastor Broden who has been an advocate for political prisoners. I encourage you to ask questions and reach out if you want to discuss anything further as my wife and I love to make noise and shine light about the prison industrial complex.  It is what God has called us to do.”  But then Davis launches into the core of his ministry objectives, which at heart, are political rather than Christian, asserting that “In December 2010, LTC Terry Lakin was sent to Fort Leavenworth prison for 6 months for questioning Obama’s eligibility.”

In just four words, Rudy Davis has misrepresented the facts in the Lakin case

According to a December 16, 2010 abcnews.go.com report by Huma Khan, headlined,  ‘Birther’ Dismissed from Army for Refusing Deployment, Sentenced to Six Months in Prison, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, was sentenced by a military jury for refusing to obey orders.   He was not imprisoned for questioning Obama’s eligibility. The abc.go.com report stated,  “During the trial, the Colorado native acknowledged that he should have followed orders despite his concerns about Obama’s citizenship.”  Huma Khan also explained in this news story that “Prosecutors came down hard on Lakin, saying that he knew what he was doing and had ‘invited and earned’ the sentence.”

Davis continues in his speech, “In May of 2012, prominent speakers all across the nation met here in this church to discuss the eligibility of Obama to be President.  As far as I know, this is the only church in America that was brave enough to hold an event to discuss that topic. Pastor Broden was also a critical voice of support for Dr. Kent Hovind before others jumped on the bandwagon.  Dr. Hovind won his freedom in a federal courtroom in Florida.  Only 2% of federal cases result in victory for the defendant.  Dr. Hovind’s ministry is responsible for many of the signs and posters you see in the hallways in this church debunking the lies of evolution.”

Statistics which ignore the data base from which they are derived

Rudy Davis follows his statement about Hovind winning freedom in a Florida federal court by saying that “only 2% of federal cases result in victory for the defendant” without further explanation. Hovind did not have a victory in a federal courtroom until he was almost done with his original ten-year sentence, and was facing another separate legal issue, which turned in his favor.  The basic reason that statistically few defendants prevail in a federal trial, is that most persons who are charged plead guilty, preferring a plea deal rather than a trial by jury. 

The true orientation of Rudy Davis’s “American political prisoner” ministry 

Rudy Davis claims that he and his wife Erin associate with “prisoners whom the state identifies as domestic terrorists“.  What this means when one examines the prisoners associated with his ministry, is that he has exclusively chosen felons who have adopted a Sovereign Citizen “I am above the law” legal ideology.  Thus Davis’ Year of Jubile/Lonestar 1776 prison ministry is not structured after the normal Independent Fundamental Baptist Church approach to prison ministry which regards the welfare of all prisoners, without partiality.  The average Christian prison ministry visits jails within close proximity to their local church, so that face to face Bible studies and worship services will in fact be offered to ANY incarcerated person, without prejudice.

Rudy Davis’ roster of unrepentant, self-designated “American political” prisoners are scattered across the United States, thus making it highly unlikely that he ever has face to face contact with a prisoner inside prison walls. In the random selection of videos I have watched at his Lonestar1776 YouTube channel,  Rudy Davis is a Yes Man, with a man pleasing, rather than God pleasing demeanor who serves as a personal secretary for his prisoners, recording their phone conversations and putting them on YouTube, and sending and receiving various documents through the mail that affect them.  He does not attempt to correct a prisoner’s slanders, false conclusions or unrepentant attitude,  but joins in with these felons to revile anyone who attempts to address the true evidence in these cases.

Since Davis acknowledges that his ministry is aimed at assisting those whose actions fall under the “domestic terrorism” guidelines of the FBI, it is small wonder that his thousands of videos on YouTube displaying antigovernment rants have resulted in personal visits to his home by the Secret Service and the FBI.  He claims that the IRS has targeted them, as well.

The Sticky Pendulum: Extremism No Matter What

Rudy Davis said in his speech at Broden’s church, “For the majority of my life I had an extremely harsh and extremely stupid view on crime and criminals.  It was not uncommon for me to say, “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”  Or “Lock them up and throw away the key.”  Or “I support our law enforcement NO MATTER WHAT!”  I now repent for those stupid things and pray that God continues to show me the error of my ways.  Our criminal system is satanic and I now see it for what it is.  It is a for-profit business that deals in human trafficking.  Prosecutors are not motivated by truth and justice but they are motivated in advancing their own careers and winning a conviction at all costs.  America has only 5% of the world’s population and 25% of the world’s prison population.”

Without understanding

Apparently Rudy Davis is unable to attempt even a rudimentary analysis of  an organization in an effort to comprehend how and why things work as they do.  Most “problem solvers” such as auditors or investigative reporters, etc., understand that real life problems have many facets: and when things don’t work as they should, the reasons might not be attributable to corruption, greed, ambition, and other self-serving causes. 

By Rudy Davis’s own confession, his mind works like a pendulum stuck in time as first  he believes 100% one way, but when his argument is dislodged, he swings  100% to the other side. That is not the behavior of a thinking, reasonable person who is attempting to sort out evidence and facts.  It is the sign of a dogmatic fool. Such persons often observe that the Bible describes sound doctrine by sorting out truth and falsehood into two distinct and separate categories, and they conclude that they can dispense with the obligation to be an impartial judge when viewing actual human behavior.

Davis continues to offer statistics that are tainted by a prejudicial interpretation.  In Rudy Davis’ attempt to prove that America is a tyranny, he refuses to acknowledge the fact    that other nations, particularly Communist or Fascist style dictatorships,  do not publish trustworthy statistics in regard to their own prison populations. It is a statistical falsehood to compare these different data bases.  I can recall that when I was young, that Soviet Union propaganda declared that they had no crime whatsoever! So how reliable are their statistics?

Rudy Davis explains, “That is why we built our website YearofJubile.com to gather the real facts about these prisoners so people can know the truth. Jack Ryan, a FBI special agent, stated on camera that the primary function of the FBI is to stop political dissent.  Erin and I have seen a pattern that they are targeting Christian dissidents for torture and death by prison.  We don’t have time today to cover the many horrific prison abuse stories we hear about inside these death camps.  Isaiah 59:14 says, And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off:  for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.”

So who is it that actually is guilty of turning judgment backward?  Let’s take a look at Mike Parsons and Rudy Davis as they consider a potential proselyte for their “domestic terrorist”, oops, “American political prisoner” ministry.

The October 6, 2018  Lonestar 1776 YouTube video, Mike Parsons Informs us about Michael Taylor Wilson, moves from a discussion of Rudy Davis’ speech on his ministry objectives to a felon named Taylor Michael Wilson who had been accused of a serious criminal incident on an Amtrak passenger train. Davis has posted the name incorrectly on his Lonestar 1776 channel, even after he claimed he saw numerous articles written on the internet about Wilson’s illegal stopping of an Amtrak train.

An October 5, 2018 article by Lori Pilger of the Lincoln Journal Star summarized the facts of the Wilson criminal sentencing in her headline: Prosecutor:  Missouri man who stopped Amtrak Train in Nebraska ‘presents a very real and present danger’. In addition to the primary criminal act,  Assistant U. S. Attorney Lesly Woods is quoted as telling the judge during the Taylor Michael Wilson sentencing hearing, that “An attack on African-Americans is an attack on Americans, period.”  This remark was in reference to Wilson’s argumentative behavior towards a black passenger on October 21, 2017, a day before “breaking into a secured compartment of the train where an engine was located, disabling it and trying to pull a gun from his waistband as a black conductor wrestled him to the ground.”  The effect on fellow train riders was that “some of the passengers panicked in the dark, trying to break out windows in fear after learning the train had been breached.”

During the LoneStar1776 video we are considering, Rudy goes into a rant about how cops are never held accountable.  So Mike Parsons chimes in at the 6.04 mark, saying, “Right, it’s rare that you’ll ever have a grand jury indict a cop and that’s by design because they’re just doing their job, and you know they had on the news today that this guy that was riding a train, oh, I can’t remember the guy’s name now, I don’t have his information right in front of me, but he’s just sentenced in federal prison to 14 years.  That’s, that’s insane.”

“What this guy’s accused of doing is they have claimed, they accused him of trying to derail a train.  He’s a paid passenger, okay, he’s visiting relatives, he’s got a weapons permit, he legally has a gun that he carries with a weapons permit, he’s lives in Missouri, going from California back to Missouri–is an emergency situation, otherwise he wouldn’t be riding a train.  And so he’s wandering around this train because it takes a long time as anybody who’s ever rode a train knows, so he walks in from one car into another.  Well this last car he walks into turns out to be an engine.”

“There’s a bunch of engines attached to this train and this one is unlocked.  Well, that’s not his fault that the door’s unlocked.  He didn’t jimmy and pry, rig it, didn’t do anything to be able to breach security.  He just walked in and there he said they’re looking at this engine compartment and like most young men nowadays, they, you know, have the mind of a 14-year-old when they’re looking at such as that and so he’s checking it out like you know any 14-year-old might be enthused about trains and trucks and airplanes and stuff.  He’s looking at it and he bumps into this lever which turns out to be a brake that slows the train down.  So they stopped the train and they go and they arrest him and they put him off the train.”

“Well, the guy hasn’t done anything illegal.  He’s been doing what he would normally do, which is walk around a train.  If they not had the door unlocked, then he wouldn’t have been in there so that’s their mistake.  But they come and put this crime because Monte Czaplewski, FBI special agent in charge of Grand Island, Nebraska in middle of nowhere America who’s trained in you know looking for terrorists, so behind every cornstalk is a terrorist.”

Rudy Davis:  “Yes.”

Mike Parsons:  “And it’s just a matter of finding them, so he creates terrorists.”

Rudy Davis:  “Amen. Amen.  That’s exactly right.”

Mike Parsons:  “He creates a crime.  Then he solves a crime so he accuses this guy of, well they arrest him, they released him on a bond, and before he can get back to his home, the FBI has gone through all his stuff and they find a business card for some I guess, there’s a company that advertises preparedness stuff, but they were also involved in sponsoring, I guess, some type of white nationalist rally or something like that.”

“Well he had nothing to do with that-he just, you know, shops on the internet so he goes to these various sites where they sell survival gear, you know, various things.  And all of a sudden, all of a sudden this guy’s accused of some kind of a masterminding some plot to derail the train because he is a white nationalist and he supposedly hates black people.  Well, funny thing there were only 2 black people on this whole train of 150 something so you know, it wasn’t exactly the Soul Train.”

October 9, 2018 Huffington Post article titled, “Neo-Nazi Convicted of Domestic Terrorism Was Among ‘Very Fine People’ At Unite the Right”

Rudy Davis:  “How old is this guy?  How old is this guy?”

Mike Parsons:  “Like 25.”

Rudy Davis:  “Wow.  Wow. 14 years-that’s upsetting.”

Mike Parsons:  “I’ve met the guy for three hours.  I sat there and listened to this guy and heard the whole story and he’s not into nothing.  He’s just a guy who’s traveling across country and they’re trying to make him out to be some huge villain.  Well now he’s sentenced to 14 years in the federal prison which means doing 85% of that-what? 12 years?”

Rudy Davis:  “Oh my God…yeah.”

Mike Parsons:  “This is destroying this young man’s life.”

Rudy DavisThis sounds like another candidate for our website, Man!”   (10.16)

Some testimony from the Criminal Complaint Affidavit filed by Special Agent Czapleski

Taylor Michael Wilson’s criminal case # 4:18-cr-03005-JMG-crz-1 in the U. S. District Court, District of Nebraska (4 Lincoln) was filed on January 17, 2018 and terminated on October 9, 2018.  Because of a plea deal, Wilson plead guilty to count 1 involving 18:1992(a), (10) and (b)(1) Terrorism Attacks and Other Violence Against Railroad Carriers and Against Mass Transportation Systems and count 2 was dismissed. The result is that Wilson was committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for 168 months…and later will be given 5 years supervised release, and will owe a $100 Special Assessment, and $9,350 in restitution.

Monte R. Czaplewski, Special Agent, FBI investigated this case and provided an affidavit dated December 22, 2017, in support of a Criminal Complaint and Arrest Warrant for Taylor Michael Wilson, age 26, who lived in St. Charles, Missouri.

As Background, the FBI report  stated in part, that on Monday October 23, 2017, FBI Omaha received a report that the day prior at about 2 AM, that the Furnas County, Nebraska Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) in Beaver City, Nebraska received a 911 call from an Amtrak Conductor. “An Amtrak train traveling through Furnas County near Oxford, Nebraska, was delayed by a passenger who breached a secure area of the train and triggered an emergency stop control panel, applying the emergency brakes and causing the train to stop in an expedited (emergency) fashion.”

The train engineer and other Amtrak personnel detained the passenger outside the train for about an hour, waiting for the closest Deputy from FSCO to arrive on the scene.  The deputy located a fully loaded speedloader with .38 bullets  and a fully loaded 38 caliber handgun in Wilson’s front waistband.  Passengers on the train identified a backpack belonging to Wilson which contained three additional loaded speed loaders, a box of .38 ammunition, a hammer, a fixed blade knife, tin snips, scissors, a tape measure and a respirator-style mask.

Upon booking at the FSCO 2 business cards were found; one for the National Socialist Movement in Detroit, Michigan, and the other for the Covenant Nation Church in Alabama.  William Davidson of this latter group was later interviewed by the FBI and he explained that his church is a “Christian Identity” church which believe that “White people are part of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel”.

When interviewed, Wilson’s parents stated that their son had been on “a trip to California to attend a college visit on October 17, 2017, but the meeting was postponed due to California wildfires.”  Wilson was traveling with his cousin who shares a single family dwelling with him which is in the name of Wilson’s parents, although initially the parents claimed to the FBI that they did not know his exact address.  Wilson had been released on bond  December 11, 2017.

During the train incident with Taylor Michael Wilson, the Conductor on duty stated he and others “located Wilson at the controls of the engine.”  Wilson was “lucid then would start saying crazy things about going to the moon.”  The FBI interview of the Conductor stated that after Wilson was removed from the engineer’s chair, Wilson continually repeated, “What are you going to do, shoot me?” and after he was subdued goaded the Amtrak staff with “I’m the conductor, bitch”.

Wilson’s cousin told the FBI that Wilson had shown him between twenty and twenty-five guns that he owns, including an AK47, AR-15’s and an M-4 rifle and approximately ten rifles and ten handguns, at his residence.

On December 13, 2017 FBI St. Louis obtained a Federal Search Warrant from the Eastern District of Missouri for Wilson’s residence.  Agents located a hidden compartment behind the refrigerator which was camouflaged to hide “a tactical vest, 11 AR-15’s (rifle), ammunition magazines with approximately 190 rounds of .223 ammunition, one drum-style ammunition magazine for a rifle, firearms tactical accessories (lights), 100 rounds of 9 mm ammunition, approximately 840 rounds of 5.45×39 rifle ammunition, white supremacy documents and paperwork, several additional handgun and rifle magazines, gunpowder, ammunition reloading supplies, and a pressure plate5.  This pressure plate5 was examined by Bomb Technicians who said that a pressure plate is a common device used in the construction of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s).  Two of the firearms included a fully automatic rifle and a CZ Scorpion Evo3 converted to a short rifle, which were possible violations of federal firearms laws.

The FBI affidavit noted that during the execution of the search warrant, Wilson’s father had  arrived, and when it became evident that he knew of both the existence and location of his son’s firearms, the father consulted with his attorney, and later that afternoon provided agents with the firearms.

Several controversial publications were found on Wilson’s phone; however, I would like to note that one of them called 100 Deadly Skills, was a series of individual PDF files, “each with a skill related to killing people”.

Is Rudy Davis’ prison ministry conducted in accordance with the Scriptures?

I Timothy 5:20-22 says, Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.  I charge thee before the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.  Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins:  keep thyself pure.

We have already noted how Rudy and Erin Davis’s prison ministry differs from the average Christian ministry. The Davis’ are anti-government and have stated that they hate the FBI and want it abolished. There is no empathy for those victimized by lawbreakers. One of the very odd aspects of Rudy Davis is that while claiming to have Pastor Broden as his pastor, at the same time he desires to gain a new proselyte to his prison ministry, who is a White Nationalist who participated in a Unite the Right violent protest.

Huffington Post reporter, Andy Campbell wrote in his October 9, 2018 article, Neo-Nazi Convicted of Domestic Terrorism Was Among ‘Very Fine People’ At Unite the Right,  U.S. District Judge Gerrard told Wilson at his sentencing on Friday, that “ You now have a choice to make.  You can either renounce the white supremacist nonsense that you’ve been fed and go back to the way you were raised as a young man. Or you can coddle up to plenty of other white nationalists that you will find incarcerated.”

Perhaps Rudy Davis ought to reconsider his own choices, as well.

D. George Sweigert v. Jason Goodman: Plaintiff’s Ninth Request for Judicial Notice

On October 9, 2018, D. George Sweigert filed Plaintiff’s Ninth Request for Judicial Notice in the Sweigert vs. Goodman RICO lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

In this 32 page document, three Public Artifacts were recorded involving a September 13, 2018 interview by Jason Goodman of “Targeted Individual” Michael Barden, and plaintiff’s book which is sold at Amazon.com titled, Report:  The Port of Charleston Dirty Bomb Hoax and Social Media Liability.

Another “Woe Is Me” Jason Goodman Guest, “Targeted Individual” Michael Barden: An Illustration of the Dangers of Reframing Reality Through Social Media Videos

When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison. I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.   Luke 12:58-59

I don’t know where Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth picks up some of his guests…maybe the Jail House Blues Club on Pan Handler’s Lane…I don’t know…but his September 27, 2018 video called Michael Barden Targeted Individual-Psychological Assault and Weaponized Mental Health Evaluation, has an interesting exchange at the 47.08 mark which reminded me of the scriptural warning in Luke 12:58-59.

Michael Barden,  silently reflecting on the prospect of  his next criminal court meeting.

Jason Goodman:  … of course you’ll have had your settlement meeting which is strange.  They’re settling it, I’m concerned about this notion of you taking a plea deal, I, I think somebody has told me, if you’re innocent you should never do that.

Michael Barden:  Yeah, as a TI,  judging from repetition in the past, getting screwed over on pretty much everything, it’s really tough to take that risk.

Jason Goodman:  But the question is, is it a bigger risk to take the plea deal? I don’t know…

The foundational reality on  whether or not to take a plea bargain hinges on Actual Innocence.  And therein lies the problem for many YouTubers who roam the streets looking for trouble with other citizens and law enforcement, filming their conspiracy complaints about the long lines at the grocery store, asking for a dollar from the honest working man, because THEIR precious free time is spent on their endless cause of photographing their endless rambling complaints….

Michael Barden has labeled himself as a TI, a Targeted Individual, who has been singled out by organized gang stalkers, presumably with connections to the government.

Meet 43-year-old Michael Barden, who has labeled himself as a Targeted Individual, a descriptor which is repeatedly driven into his viewer’s mind through both words and images.

While claiming to be documenting  the reality of his own life as a victim of gang stalking since youth, it would appear that he is also establishing a narrative to justify himself as the innocent victim in all of his real life dealings with others.

The Michael Barden YouTube channel states, “My channel is dedicated to ending Cult Ritual Abuse and Organized Stalking and Harassment.  I have been a Targeted Individual for years now, and fighting the illegal use of FISA to target innocent individuals around the world. The videos I make take up a lot of my time and my finances have been drained through targeting and legal fees.  Any donation you can give even if it’s a dollar would be very helpful in our fight.  I am an Air Force veteran of 15 years and have no retirement.  You can send money via PayPal.”

I had to look up FISA to see what this acronym represents, and after reading this brief introductory sentence on the Wikipedia page, I have to wonder why Michael Barden is paranoid about the purposes of this agency. As a former Air Force employee, why would he be personally interested in surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the U. S.? Notice in this Google search of Michael Barden videos, the repeated attachment of the label Targeted Individual with his name.

Here is a screenshot of the titles which were chosen by Jason Goodman to headline his interviews of Michael Barden. The overuse of the phrase Targeted Individual is beginning to suggest that someone is creating an alibi,  writing a false legal narrative to explain the rewriting of a personal history….

Will the mere mention by this blog, of the fact that Michael Barden is referenced in a court filing in the D. George Sweigert vs. Jason Goodman RICO lawsuit, be offered as “proof” that Barden is in fact a targeted individual?  Has Jason Goodman even broken this bad news to his new friend?

On October 1, 2018,  in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, docket entry #32 was added, representing Plaintiff’s Eighth Request for Judicial Notice [RJN].  The three public artifacts which have been entered into the court record can be viewed here:   sweigert RJN 8 10 01 2018.

Public Artifact One displays the current criminal charges against Michael Barden, for which Jason Goodman had been pondering the plea deal question. Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Disorderly Conduct with a Weapon are serious charges. Jason Goodman and Michael Barden are both non attorneys, facing potential legal judgments in two different arenas.  Whereas Barden is facing criminal prosecution for  aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct with a weapon in the State of Arizona, Goodman is representing himself in two federal civil lawsuits involving defamation and RICO complaints.  Both men are looking for the perfect alibi to get out from under these complaints.

Let’s ask this simple question:  how foolish is it for Michael Barden to publicly weigh his legal options with Jason Goodman and his “Crowdsource the Truth” viewers?  

I am not an attorney, so perhaps a brief look at another story which has nothing to do with Goodman’s or Barden’s legal situations, might provide us with some cautionary advice before we attempt to override the legal counsel of a person facing a criminal conviction.

The story of Shawn Stuller who believed the advice of his friends over his attorney

The January 8, 2016 Santa Rosa Press Gazette at srpressgazette.com presented a short news story headlined Stuller sentenced to 20 years for drug trafficking, burglary.

Shawn Stuller was one of Rudy Davis’ featured  “American political” prisoners on his LoneStar 1776 YouTube until recently, when there was a falling out between the two men.

Like Michael Barden, Shawn Stuller was looking for the perfect alibi to escape the consequences of his own actions.

Let’s pick up Shawn’s story from an October 7, 2016 article on Robert Baty’s kehvrlb.com website, ‘Kent Hovind’s False Legal Narrative Challenged!” (I have added bolding to highlight points of interest).

Under a post headlined, Another Hovind False Narrative-The Shawn Stuller Case, Robert Baty writes:

“I and others have been following Shawn Stuller’s case because of its association with Kent Hovind and his convicted co-conspirator Paul John Hansen and their sovereign citizen theology.

Shawn met Kent and Paul while they were all in county jail together.  Shawn has a long rap sheet and things were starting to get serious with his latest criminal activity.

Kent and Paul convinced Shawn to try their sovereign citizen antics instead of making a deal as he had always done before and which typically put him back out on the street without any serious jail time.

So Shawn tried that and, of course, it got him nowhere.  Because of Shawn’s problems with lawyers, private and public, he is the one who caused his case to drag on and ultimately get scheduled for trial after a number of delays.

The judge was not of a mind to allow any further delays and Shawn was not properly prepared to try his case (i.e., still had lawyer problems and couldn’t seem to get any witnesses, or even his mother, to show up for the trial/sentencing).

The judge was not pleased with Shawn’s further attempt at delay and was going to proceed to trial.  Shawn decided to do what he had always done before, plead out.  In this case it was a blind plea and he would be at the mercy of the court as to sentencing.

Because of Shawn’s antics, the State introduced his criminal history which resulted in him being classified as an “habitual felony offender”.

Kent didn’t mention that the crimes in this case not only included illegally entering a residence, but also stealing controlled drugs [enough of them to qualify as him as a “trafficker”), defecating in the kitchen sink, and stealing some other small item(s)].

Shawn had a change of heart, still playing games, and decided to try to withdraw his plea before being sentenced.  Shawn claimed some unnamed criminals who were in the courthouse when he was sent for trial threatened him into making the plea.

The judge didn’t buy it, and when Shawn came back for sentencing he got the 20 years; all thanks to the influence of Kent Hovind himself and his co-conspirator Paul John Hansen whose sovereign citizen antics not only failed but put Shawn in a worse case scenario instead of allowing him to plead and get a sentence that could have resulted in him being free today, October 7, 2016.

Shawn recently filed his appeal brief, through a private attorney whom Kent’s visitor Barbara may have helped to significantly finance.  The State’s reply is due soon.”

According to an update by Robert Baty, a transcript of court proceedings on September 20, 2018 reveals that Shawn Stuller was granted considerable mercy by the court in allowing his charges to be reinstated using the original plea deal which had been withdrawn. The link to the 35 page transcript is here.

Here is an excerpt beginning on page 6 of a few of the questions asked Shawn Stuller:

Q. At some point in time, did Assistant Public Defender Nash-Early convey a plea offer of five years in prison to you to resolve the case?

A.  Yes.

Q.  Did she explain to you that the maximum sentence that you were facing, if you chose not to–did she explain to you the maximum sentence you were facing if you chose not to accept the five-year plea offer?

A. Yes.

Q.  At some point in time did she tell you that the plea offer of five years was no longer available?

A. Yes.

Q.  Now, after you found out that the plea offer of five years was no longer available, did you at some point become aware that you were now subject to an enhanced habitual offender–you were now subject to an enhanced habitual offender sentencing?

A.  Yes.

Q.  And that you were now facing a maximum of life in prison?

A.  Yes.

Q.  Had you known that you were subject to an enhanced sentence of life in prison as an habitual offender at the time of the five-year plea offer was on the table, would you have accepted the five-year plea?

A.  Yes.

When questioned, the asst. public defender who had formerly represented Stuller,  recalled explaining the habitual felony offender sentencing to him, but added, “I do recall that he didn’t believe me because he had never been to prison before.”

Back in 2016, Robert Baty had wondered, “More important from the aspect of my coverage is that failure of Kent Hovind, Paul John Hansen, Rudy Davis (LoneStar1776), and Erin Davis to accept responsibility for the roles they played in putting Shawn away for 20 years, barring a successful appeal and subsequent developments. If Shawn gets a do-over, his prospects might be greatly improved if he could get Kent and Paul to admit to their responsibility as to how it all played out and the three of them would admit to just how silly and frivolous their sovereign citizen antics were.”  Thus in the recent 2018 appeal, we observe that  Shawn Stuller was very fortunate in his circumstances to be granted a merciful return to the original sentencing proposition of the five-year plea deal.

In this recent update on Shawn Stuller, there was a falling out between Stuller and one of his friendly advisors, Rudy Davis, who has a prison ministry for self-proclaimed “Innocent” American Political Prisoners on his YouTube Channel, Lonestar 1776.

I suppose it is not for me to say who Jason Goodman should feature on his CSTT show.  But given his past troubles with some of his former guests, he might want to start selling T-shirts with a line from Alexander Pope’s An Essay on CriticismFor fools rush in, where angels fear to tread.

THE OATH Above All Oaths of Robert David Steele, Chief Counsel for the International Tribunal for Natural Justice

Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods:  yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.  Isaiah 41:23

Chief Counsel Robert David Steele at the 4/2018 Westminster Seatings of ITNJ

Robert David Steele, in an April 2018 Westminster Seatings video for the ITNJ stated at the 2.20 mark, “I have been a spy, I am out from under cover.  I’m under a lifetime secrecy agreement…”. This statement about his obligations to the CIA was made as he sat as the Chief Counsel for the International Tribunal for Natural Justice. 

As a signatory to the ITNJ Constitution, Steele has approved Article 7 (2) that  By affirming an oath in accordance with the present Article, Judges and Officers acknowledge that said oath shall take precedence over any and all other oaths or commitments that the Judge or Officer in question may have made to any other court or government or professional body or private association.

This raises the question as to whether the ITNJ Oath of Office takes precedence over Robert David Steele’s CIA secrecy oath.

Also, we must consider whether this same oath takes precedence over U. S. perjury laws which are a foundational safeguard in court proceedings. As we know, Robert David Steele and his non-profit organization Earth Intelligence Network are the plaintiffs in a United States federal civil lawsuit.

Why would anyone take such a loyalty oath to ITNJ,  a legally problematic international tribunal which had its beginnings rooted in Sovereign Citizen legal theories?

The last time I was observing Robert David Steele, he had been entertaining great visions of reforming the United States of America on multiple levels. After the last Presidential election, Steele’s visions were ignored by Trump who refused to meet with him. In an interview with Joseph Ford Cotto in June of 2017, Steele had shared several of his great plans, and number 3 on his list involved the CIA and his desire to be the head honcho of their operations, as shown in this screenshot.After the election, the CIA waited nervously to see if President Trump would give Robert David Steele the time of day. One can imagine that CIA coffee breaks featured coins being tossed in the air to decide who would be the winners comprising the 50% who were fired, or  the losers who would have to implement Robert David Steele’s grandiose visions. No doubt, a collective sigh of relief was heard in the heavens when Trump rebuffed  Steele.

Here is what Robert David Steele had discussed with Benjamin Fulford in Japan, as noted in my A Man Called Sue article on March 21, 2018:It appears that Robert David Steele has been sidetracked from the Benjamin Fulford visionary intersection, and has been working on his alliance with former rock musician Sacha Stone, founder of the International Tribunal for Natural Justice.

Finger prints of the gods

The Claims of the Living blog has documented in a series of articles, the beginnings of the legal and operational foundations of ITNJ, prior to the American team, led by Rebecca Cope, being ousted by Sacha Stone. Cope is an advocate for the sovereign citizen theories promoted by a self-proclaimed “Judge” in Alaska, named Anna Von Reitz.  Visual signs which serve to identify the practitioners of Sovereign Citizen ideology can be seen in the photograph below of  blood-red fingerprints beside several signatory names to the ITNJ Constitution. The Robert David Steele defamation lawsuit in U. S. district court 

On September 1, 2017 Robert David Steele and his non-profit Earth Intelligence Network filed a $15,350,000 defamation lawsuit against Jason Goodman, Patricia A. Negron, and Queen Tut, a woman believed to be known as Carla A. Howell. This lawsuit was amended on April 13, 2018 in document 39.  One of the changes was that Queen Tut was declared to be Susan A. Lutzke, the damages were increased by 3 million dollars, more recent defamation evidence was introduced, and the following addition to the Plaintiff’s work history and accomplishments was introduced to counter a new accusation made by defendants:

What is misleading about the title of Chief Counsel, is that in the case of Robert David Steele, he is neither an attorney, nor a legal scholar. And when it came time for him to file a federal civil court lawsuit, he hired attorney Steven S. Biss who has been disciplined by the Virginia Bar to represent him, rather than trying to impress the federal judge with his fake title.

The same persons seen during the #UNRIG campaign are found connected to ITNJ

As we take a look at Steele’s Chief Counsel position at the International Tribunal for Natural Justice, three other names show up in the history of this organization that I am familiar with.  Robert David Steele would also be familiar with the writings of Anna Von Reitz, as her name was referenced in his own blog, and in addition, he has been interviewed by Victurus Libertas who promotes sovereign citizen ideology, including that of Anna Von Reitz. As shown here in an official International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ) photo we also see Cynthia McKinney who helped to promote Steele’s #UNRIG election reform efforts,  and also  Youtuber, David Seaman who played an important part in pushing the fake Pizzagate scandal.

Note the prominence of Cynthia McKinney of #UNRIG election reform days when she became noted for going cross-country with Steele in a tax exempt plastic wrapped RV.  George Webb declined Steele’s invitation to be chief recorder of that event, and so now David Seaman is the exalted investigative reporter at ITNJ,  known for being on the forefront of the fake Pizzagate story which involved undocumented accusations of pedophilia.

One of the arguments which Rebecca Cope had set forth was that she did not want an  ITNJ requirement that judges must have legal qualifications from existing recognized institutions.  It was her desire to allow “special individuals”, such as the self-educated and self-proclaimed “Judge”  Anna Von Reitz, to be appointed as one of ITNJ’s judges. Note that presently ITNJ had no problem granting non-attorney Robert David Steele the title of Chief Counsel, allowing him to have an appearance of expertise and authority while adorned in a black robe during their formal meetings.

The ITNJ Constitution has loop holes to accommodate the indiscretions of its Chief Justice

Presiding ITNJ Chief Justice Sir John Walsh of Brannaugh has engaged in numerous eyebrow raising activities, including creating Greenwich University which failed to meet Australian academic standards and for which he appointed a convicted fraudster as chancellor.  A UK website,  Hoaxteadresearch.wordpress.com, in their April 11, 2018 article written by El Coyote, titled  ITNJ ‘Chief Justice’ stripped of ability to practice law, extensively documents John Walsh’s Australian barrister history which caused him to be a focal point in a Senate inquiry.

Perhaps this is the reason why the ITNJ Constitution removed the words “I swear” from their Oath of Office, preferring the more nebulous wording of “I affirm”. The following comment given in an Australian Senate committee meeting regarding the perjury of Sir John Walsh may have influenced that choice of wording. Despite all this backdrop of ITNJ shenanigans, when it came to Robert David Steele’s federal civil court Amended Complaint, he complained that, “Defendant’s exhibit nothing but scorn for the Plaintiffs and the legal system.  They call this action a ‘fake lawsuit’.” 

Presumably, the Plaintiff thinks he is respectful of the United States federal court system by which he seeks a legal resolution of his complaint, despite his own questionable association with antigovernment sovereign citizen legal theorists. 

Practitioners of sovereign citizen legal theories often include incarcerated felons and vexatious litigants who have caught the attention of the judicial system with their paper terrorism as well as the watchful eye of  FBI investigators, so perhaps Steele should not press this assertion too far.

ITNJ Symbolism as representing occult concepts and Roman Catholic images

Let’s look at the symbols employed for the ITNJ, and their meaning.

The Pinecone symbol is used by occultists to represent the pineal gland, or the THIRD EYE which was opened in Adam and Eve when they believed and obeyed the subtilty of the serpent in the garden of Eden. Genesis 3:5 quotes the serpent as saying, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Elsewhere in the Bible these “gods” are also known as judges.

From a distance, the six-sided logo for the ITNJ has an intertwined snake look. Many have observed the ostentatious gold throne chair for  Chief Justice Sir John Walsh.

The Humanitad Free Press and the U. S. nonprofit Committee to Support the ITNJ (EIN 81-0804071 with principal officer Santiago Azpilueta of 17423 Spirit Lane SE, Yelm, WA) jointly publish an online magazine called The Sovereign Voice.  The ITNJ.org website provides this answer to a common question:Here is another symbol of ITNJ:

Where else do we find these two birds combined with a giant pine cone?  Here is a photo of the Fontana della Pigna, which is described in Wikipedia as “a former Roman fountain which now decorates a vast niche in the wall of the Vatican facing the Cortile della Pigna, located in Vatican City, in Rome, Italy.”

Paradoxical quandaries

Returning to our discussion of ITNJ Chief Counsel Robert David Steele, and his participation in the Westminster Seatings of April 16-18, 2018, a short video on the ITNJ YouTube channel can be viewed where Steele makes the following introductory remarks:

(1.20)…we have people in the United States of America that breed children in order to sell them and when they are sold, they come without birth certificates which means it’s easier to kill them and have no one ask where they are…

(1.36)…importing children by the plane load again children with no documentation…

(4.28) …the need to restore the sovereignty of We the People…

It seems the 2018 Westminster Seatings was seeking to make use of its American nonprofit status to provide a show as a court of inquiry, rather than displaying the workings of a formal judicial court, as intended in the beginning.  Rebecca Cope and the American team of volunteers were working to set up a court system similar to existing legal courts, such as the grand jury model, but with added features to protect  We the people from corrupt judges who are nonremovable from office.  These efforts were thwarted by founder Sacha Stone, who preferred giving his ITNJ Chief Justice a life term, despite Sir John Walsh’s checkered history in Australia.

So this loosely organized “inquiry” put on their show last April, and Robert David Steele asserted that child trafficking in the United States is hidden using the method of not applying for birth certificates or other types of documentation. This statement is a peculiar one,  given  Steele’s alliance with sovereign citizens, for it is primarily the sovereign citizen movement in the United States that is defying the legal requirement for birth certificates for newborns.

In the past year I have been reading various legal documents posted in two of  Robert Baty’s Facebook groups;  Kent Hovind’s Worst Nightmare and Understanding The Baby Holm Case. The primary reason for my interest in these two groups is that the members provide many insights into real life anti-government individuals and groups, including tax protestors, sovereign citizens and anti-child protective services advocates.

It is these same anti-government ideologues that constantly accuse the government of child trafficking and kidnapping.  Such accusations often are distorted information campaigns waged on social media platforms.  On the lower end of the spectrum many of these false accusations come from felons, drug addicts, persons with poor parenting skills, etc.  who are looking for a scapegoat for their own personal behavior.  On the higher spectrum, we find a number of well-educated persons ranging from engineers, lawyers, former CIA agents, etc. who are promoting internet campaigns of unfounded accusations against legitimate authorities. All of this distracts from the serious issue of the criminal conduct of those in positions of power and authority.

Robert David Steele has asserted in his Amended Complaint that “he is a vocal advocate for the exposure and criminal prosecution of pedophiles and everyone who aids and abets such horrific crimes”.  Yet during his 2017 #UNRIG campaign he made numerous undocumented, hearsay accusations against members of Congress.  This raises the question about his own motives and methods of dealing with what should be the criminal prosecution of pedophiles, rather than the forgiveness of their transgressions without regard to the justice needed for victims of pedophilia.

On June 2, 2017 Joseph Ford Cotto did a series of interviews with Robert David Steele for the San Francisco Review of Books.com.  His last one, Interview: X Spy Robert David Steele explains why Cynthia McKinney should be Donald Trump’s vice president, included the following words of Steele:Note that Robert David Steele’s motto with regard to Truth and Reconciliation is everyone gets the truth, no one goes to jail. This is a philosophical theme that is played out in the ITNJ public proceedings, when Chief Counsel Steele emphasized that “this is a court of inquiry, it’s not an adversarial court, it’s a non-profit educational event”. In other words, ITNJ is impotent as a judicial body, despite the first paragraph in the ITNJ Preamble of their Constitution, which declares Let this message go forth from this time and place to all the peoples of the world that to right the wrongs done to them and in vindication of their rights and the enforcement of just causes and to hold accountable those responsible for breaches of human rights it is proclaimed that the International Tribunal for Natural Justice is hereby established pursuant to this Constitution.

During the above San Francisco Review of Books interview, Robert David Steele  claimed that “At least six top Republican Senators are world-class pedophiles who have probably participated in child ritual murder..”.  Did Steele ever report his knowledge of these crimes  to law enforcement officials in order to bring these so-called world-class pedophiles to justice? 

The disregarding of the rules for evidence, which protect the accused from hearsay and false facts

Article 17 of the ITNJ Constitution is on Evidence and Admissibility, which gives the general rule allowing all evidence as admissible. There is a broad, and ill defined qualification to allow for dismissing frivolous complaints. However, because ITNJ is operating presently as a one-sided inquiry, rather than as a judicial court that weighs the reliability of evidence, this means that Hearsay evidence is admissible, without being subject to cross-examination by the person(s) being accused.  Robert David Steele’s own statements about pedophilia involving members of the U. S. Congress appear to represent undocumented accusations and represent hearsay.

The threat to the uniqueness of America’s laws and jurisprudence by slipshod International Tribunals and foreign laws attempting to override common legal wisdom

Here are a few statements to ponder excerpted from a Fordham International Law Journal, Volume 29, Issue 3, Article 4, 2005 called Sovereignty and the American Courts at the Cocktail Party of International Law:  The Dangers of Domestic Judicial Invocations of Foreign and International Law,  by Donald J. Kochran.   (linked here:  fordham international law 2005

page 507:  With increasing frequency and heightened debate, U. S. courts have been citing foreign and “international” law as authority for domestic decisions.  This trend is inappropriate, undemocratic, and dangerous.

page 508 footnote 9:  Professor Berkowitz explains:  Critics raise a number of serious objections.  First, officials of international institutions (to say nothing of NGOs) charged with promulgating international law lack democratic accountability…Second, as most international institutions –possessing neither police force nor military–lack the capacity to enforce their rulings and resolutions, their legal pronouncements are impotent and make a mockery of the rule of law…

page 513:  When the British colonies in North America chose to cast off their chains by revolution, they chose to create a sovereign Nation-State that was beyond the shackles and controls of outside influences.

page 515:  Importation of these over-laws in recent judicial decisions is entirely inappropriate for a country that has a constitution and a commitment to govern itself.

page 522:  After describing multiple court rulings that would need to be overturned if the Court were to consistently rely on foreign sources of authority, Justice Scalia continued:  The court should either profess its willingness to reconsider all these matters in light of the views of foreigners, or else it should cease putting forth foreigners’ views as part of the reasoned basis of its decisions.  To invoke alien law when it agrees with one’s own thinking, and ignore it otherwise, is not reasoned decision-making, but sophistry.

page 526:  As Judge Robert Bork has opined, the Framers may be turning over in their graves:  “The most ominous aspect of Roper…is the Court majority’s reliance upon foreign decisions and unratified treaties…If the meaning of a document over 200 years old can be affected by the current state of world opinion, James Madison and his colleagues labored in vain.”  It is a Constitution the courts should be expounding, not other people’s laws.

There is a battle presently being fought in our U. S. courts of law against sovereign citizen legal theories, which attempt to subvert time honored procedures for determining the facts and legal arguments in judicial proceedings.  It is high arrogance for such individuals to establish international tribunals which tend to subvert justice in order to publicize extremely serious hearsay accusations against persons who are not provided the legal safeguards to ensure that justice and truth prevail in their case.
