Attorney Connie Reguli: Lowering the Bar of Public Discourse on Child Protective Laws

The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.  Ecclesiastes 9:17

It would seem a simple matter that a lawyer should understand how to reason within the parameters of the laws affecting their client’s case.  It would also seem to be a simple matter that a lawyer should act solely for the benefit of their client, and not use that person’s cause to further their own personal interests. Lawyers are bound by professional standards in their practice, but what is the result when they enter into the realm of public discourse and their cries of injustice can be condemned on the basis that their findings of fact and conclusions of law were arbitrary and capricious, an abuse of discretion, and unsupported by substantial and material evidence?

Over the past few months we have been looking at several areas where the  Sovereign Citizen Movement, with their false legal arguments and falsified credentials, have caused those who heeded their counsel to go to jail. One of the issues which Sovereign Citizens have attached themselves to is the emotionally volatile Anti-CPS (Child Protective Services) movement.  In the midst of all this Anti-CPS clamor stands attorney Connie Reguli, who in contrast to Sovereign Citizen “diploma mill lawyers”,  actually graduated from an accredited law school, passed the Tennessee State Bar Exam, and practiced in the broad area of family law for over 20 years. Reguli is now undertaking to lead a grass roots movement of reform in the very controversial area of child protective law.

Connie Reguli, Attorney and founder of the nonprofit Family Forward Foundation

At Tennfamilylaw.com, Connie Reguli  discusses her background history which includes “graduating cum laude from Middle Tennessee State University”,  “prosecuting criminal offenses for the State of Tennessee”,  “completing course work in a master’s psychology program”, “working at the trial level as well as the appellate court level”, and being the single adoptive parent of three (Russian) children. She has been active in Judicial Reform issues “to impeach and remove judges that abuse their power”.

Because we are interested in determining how attorney Connie Reguli has applied her knowledge and influence with respect to the Anti-CPS movement, it is notable that she claims in her resume at Tennfamilylaw.com that she “is most proud of the fact that she was the first attorney in Tennessee to secure a money judgment for damages in a child abuse case.  The jury awarded 2.8 million dollars to four children against their abusive parents in 2010”.

On social media, Connie Reguli is decidedly against government agencies which have been granted the authority to represent the interests of minor children, in matters where the parents and caregivers of that child are regarded as adversaries.  So it is of interest that Reguli is proud of the part which she played in pleading the cause of children against their own parents, which is to say, that she stood in shoes similar to those worn by CPS; only she took it upon herself to extract a large monetary judgment against the parents of her clients, which would further ensure  irrevocable damage to family relationships.

Seemingly oblivious to the moral weight of her own deeds upon the scales of justice, as she represents first one side and then another, Reguli would like us to think that she can now impartially represent the interests of those parents who believe, contrary to American legal theory, that they have absolute authority over their own children.   That sentiment contrasts with a statement quoted in The Court of Appeals of Tennessee at Knoxville, assigned on briefs October 21, 2015 In Re Rainee M., page 4, saying,  “Parents have a fundamental constitutional interest in the care and custody of their children under both the United States and Tennessee constitutions.”  Kiesling v. Keisling, 92 S. W. 3d 374, 378 (Tenn. 2002).  It is well established, however, that “this right is not absolute and parental rights may be terminated if there is clear and convincing evidence justifying such termination under the applicable statute.”

Connie Reguli stated in a second letter which she wrote to President Trump, “Certainly, we will never deny that child abuse is real and a travesty in our nation, but not every child taken has been abused.  In fact, the statistics show that 85% of these children are removed under circumstances deemed as neglect”. While Reguli concedes that child abuse does exist, she is of the opinion that child neglect is harmless, and that the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 has facilitated through its funding provisions, a scandalous child trafficking effort involving CPS agencies and private foster child organizations who file for the purposes of financial gain, documents which will legally terminate parental rights (TPR).

An example of Connie Reguli and her grass-rooters of the Anti-CPS movement misrepresenting the government’s attempt to protect children from abuse and neglect

The Social Media Advocacy of Attorney Connie Reguli through her nonprofit FAMILY FORWARD FOUNDATION corporation

So exactly what is Connie Reguli advocating, as she spearheads a grassroots movement of Anti CPSers? At her familyforwardfoundation.com website, she claims, We are a nonprofit organization that exists to build family integrity and protect families from unwarranted government interference.  Together, as families, we can build a nation in which the institutionalization of children through foster care will be a thing of the past.

Additionally under the subheading, “Making your dollars work”, Reguli states, Your dollars are put to work providing advocacy and support for families, assessing the needs of families, organizing resources to fill those needs, and educating lawmakers, judges, and attorneys on family justice.  Under “Family Justice”, the claim is We cannot strengthen families unless we have the support of laws that protect family integrity and family courts that respect the constitutional rights of parents and children.  Finally, for only a $20 donation to the Family Forward Foundation, one can buy Family Justice!

In sync with her nonprofit foundation, Attorney Connie Reguli has also founded a public FaceBook group called Family Forward Project, which presently has 8,808 members. The purpose of this group is “to inform the public and educate the law makers regarding the unlawful social engineering financially incentivized by the Federal government.”

Ever against Federal financial incentives for other people, Reguli is not afraid to embrace the nonprofit corporation benefits for herself. Interestingly, on April 22, 2016, four months before she registered her nonprofit Family Forward Foundation in Tennessee with an effective date of September 1, 2016, she  created her website Family Forward Foundation.com.  As of February 3, 2018, Connie Reguli posted the following comment on her Family Forward Project FB, stating that she still had not been approved by the IRS for 501(c)(3) status.  Yet her website asks for donations on behalf of her nonprofit organization while it is still in limbo with the IRS.

Family Forward Foundation’s Logo is like a “Rorschach Inkblot Test”.  While some may view this logo as 3 rocking people holding a heart, all I see is the face of a smirking clown.

Sorry to correct Ms. Reguli’s notions, but Noah actually built an ark, not an arc; the arc was the rainbow created by God to symbolize his promise to not judge the inhabitants of the earth by a flood again. As one can see, Connie Reguli, in making the simplest of statements, manages to complicate them by the simplest of spelling errors. Another example is in this YouTube video where she is describing, but not explaining, her theme of Advocacy for 2018. Is there some reason she presents a very careless image to those who follow her leadership? Cooridination may be fine by her, but who wants to hire an attorney that is careless with detail?

Cooridination…maybe a legalese word?

Pandering to Persons Who Are Accustomed to Publicized Lies 

A couple of days ago, one of the members of the FB Family Forward Project group posted the following, which created a controversy among several readers,  as to whether the Trump Twitter was real or a fake.I read most of the comments, and it would appear that this falsified Trump twitter message originated from another popular Anti-CPS group which bears the heading Dr. Phil Exposes CPS:

Under this FaceBook account, it states, “Dr. Phil exposes CPS is the founder and creator of the fosterwar which has grown to network of over 60,000 members the fosterwar demands that no children be removed from parents or family without criminal charges.”

What is interesting about the member who believed this fake Trump twitter and posted it on Connie Regali’s group FB page, is that this person paid no attention to the date of the message which was  January 20, 2017, just  prior to when Regali had challenged her supporters to send  a million copies of her letter to Trump on this same issue.  So if Trump had in fact made this declaration, why would this group bother with a letter writing campaign?

Two letters had been sent to Trump, the first was in February of 2017, and the second around the end of March 2017. In addition to sending the form letter written by Connie Regali, personal messages were encouraged to be attached. A Go-Fund-Me page received donations for mailing supplies for the second letter. This is a screenshot of the first letter, which I am going to key off of, as a means to discuss the approach of Connie Reguli to the important issues connected to the Anti-CPS movement. The second letter can be read here.

First, the form of this letter does not respect protocol for addressing The President

Both letters were penned by attorney Connie Reguli, although the authorship is not explicitly stated.  She ignores the protocol for addressing a letter to the President of the United States of America. It is disrespectful to ignore the standard form of address,  “Dear Mr. President”,  and both letters are unsigned by the writer, which should have been noted after ending with “Most respectfully”.  Instead, the first letter “signs off” rudely with “These professionals can enlighten you on the burdens of this system:  Connie Reguli, Atty, Tennessee, (etc.)…And many more”.  Several attorney names are listed with no means of contact, although the President is told that these “professional experts” are the ones who can educate him “on this giant problem”. Both letters reference the Family Forward Project.  The first letter suggests to the President, “Find us on Facebook”.

Not only is this form of letter disrespectful to the office of the President of the United States, but also it sets a bad example to the followers of Connie Reguli, many of which have experienced problems with Child Protective Services because their personal behavior falls short of the minimum standards for raising children.  It only complicates their situation if they are encouraged to adopt a tone of disrespect toward governmental authorities.

Statements are made without reference to supporting documentation

The first sentence of the first letter says, “Every day in America 400,000 children are living in foster care”.  The second letter, written one month later, states the figure of 500,000. There is no source given to back these numbers. Reguli claims that 80% of foster “children are removed from their homes on the ambiguous and inocuous(sp) claims of child neglect”. The second letter changes the 80% to 85%.

“Child neglect” probably is a general category used by CPS to summarize under one heading,  specific documented facts and observations made by the case worker.  Thus there would be in reality,  no ambiguity in the actual case file.  And why does Reguli consider child neglect to be “inocuous” (innocuous, i.e. harmless), if the evidence itself  warranted removal of a child from its home?

In the second letter, a complaint is made against the monetary incentives involved in the  privatization of foster care.  But even if the government ran foster care directly, it would involve providing the foster parents with funds to reimburse the basic costs of the child. One cannot get around the fact that all this costs lots of money, which comes out of the pockets of taxpayers.

The focus of the letter is on the “negative effects” of the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 (ASFA), but Reguli fails to address what factual evidence exists to back her complaints

This ASFA bill was signed into existence in 1997 under the Clinton Administration.  Reguli desires to have this entire act overturned, so she asks Trump, “Please execute an executive order which prohibits the adoption bonus program to the states for forced adoptions.”

I had to look online to find out what the official explanation is for this act, as it is not properly explained in either letter. Apparently 20 years ago,  there had been concern that some children were remaining in foster care for long periods, or experiencing multiple placements, which was detrimental to their sense of wellbeing.  Therefore a requirement was established that states are to file for termination of parental rights (TPR) once children have been in foster care for 15 of the most recent 22 months, with exceptions made under certain conditions.

Reguli fails to address with documented facts how these requirements actually affect the manner in which cases are handled. The reality of many families who have had children placed in foster care, is that these parents have resisted making even the most rudimentary of changes needed to properly care for their own children. Many of these parents have criminal, drug and mental issues, poor work habits, poor social skills, etc. that have placed their minor children in physically and emotionally distressing situations, and it is the failure of the parents to act responsibly, that keeps their children in foster care.

Reguli claims in her second letter that federal funding “amounts to government sanctioned child trafficking and against humanity”. She also stated “We can barely remember the extermination of the Jews under Nazi Germany, but someday our history books will find that the rehoming of children has become the norm instead of the exception.  Just imagine if each child is worth $80,000 per year to an industry thirsting for more children to ring their register”.  Proof?  None given.

“…adopting them into the home of strangers” complaint by Reguli in both Trump letters

The ASFA emphasizes adoption by adult relatives over nonrelatives, so why is Connie Reguli all aghast about the adoption of children by strangers, when she, as a single adult, adopted three children from Russia, removing them from their native country entirely?

In the screenshot below, Connie Reguli posted the following story which may explain why she resorts to undocumented and unproven complaints against the CPS system.

Judge Sharon Guffee’s 2017 complaint about the unprofessional conduct of Connie Reguli is made to the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee

In connection with this story about Judge Sharon Guffee, Connie Reguli had posted on the Family Forward Project FB site, a two page letter signed by Guffee on Williamson County Juvenile Court letterhead, dated September 6, 2017 to the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.

I have excerpted parts of this letter from Judge Guffee, which begins, “I am sending this complaint against attorney Connie Reguli for an incident that recently occurred before the Government Operations Subcommittee for the Judiciary and Government for the Tennessee legislature on August 15, 2017.”

“Attached is the video from the meeting where Ms. Natasha Pavolich addresses the committee as part of their citizen communications.  It begins at 46.30.  Ms. Pavolich on at least two occasions states she is “here on behalf of attorney Connie Reguli” who was “unable to be present”.  During her exchange with the committee, Ms. Pavolich expressed her dissatisfaction with a ruling she received in my court.  She admitted she had not filed a complaint with the Board of Judicial Conduct.  Also attached you will find her voluntary dismissal of her appeal to the Court of Appeals….”.

“I welcome and expect any party who comes before me to seek a review from a superior court if they are not satisfied with their outcome.  What I do not expect is for an attorney to solicit others to disparage a judge in a public forum knowing full well this is unacceptable unethical conduct on the part of an attorney.  Clearly, Ms. Pavolich was acting as an agent for Ms. Reguli…”.

“In addition, I am enclosing a very disturbing correspondence regarding “wholesaling of children through the Department of Children’s Services” one of my magistrates received in the mail….I am frankly appalled that Ms. Reguli is able to make such fraudulent solicitations without some type of serious sanction”.

One of the posts allowed on Connie Reguli’s FB group Family Forward Project

You can learn nothing from the sarcasm of the CPS Checklist; however, the opinion of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit:  Connie Reguli v. Sharon Guffee is highly interesting

On March 31, 2010  An Appeal was filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit concerning a case involving Connie Reguli, personally and as next friend of “daughter” Reguli, a minor child(Plaintiffs) v. Sharon Guffee, personally and in her capacity as Referee of Williamson County Juvenile Court (Defendants). CourtListener.com has a copy of this appeal here.

This fourteen page document is interesting reading for the layman, as the Appeals Circuit Judges summarize the facts of the case and discuss the merits of the arguments presented by Connie Reguli. The conclusion was that the district court’s judgment was affirmed.

This case involving Connie Reguli, as plaintiff, represents the unusual situation of an experienced family law attorney and former assistant prosecutor who found herself as a single parent personally interacting with the Williamson County, Tennessee juvenile court system, after her own 16-year-old daughter went astray. What was interesting is that the Appeals discussion of the details of this case stated, “…proceedings only began because Reguli herself charged her daughter as unruly”. Throughout the Appeals document, as it goes point by point, the plaintiff, even though a practicing attorney, did not cite cases to support her arguments, and failed to make a convincing case that her constitutional rights had been violated.

Reguli’s appeal is based on “the denial of her claims of constitutional violations under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 based on her constitutional rights as a parent and her constitutional right to privacy.” The original complaint was made on August 12, 2008, and “on February 19, 2009, the district court dismissed most of the claims.”

After comparing the recent Facebook charge of Reguli that Judge Guffee was to be blamed for ruining her daughter’s life, with the actual facts of the case as described in the Appeals record, it would seem that Reguli has taken the position that everyone else’s actions are blamable and that the actions of herself and her daughter had no bearing on how this matter was handled.

Reguli’s suspension from practicing law

An article on brentwoodhomepage.com dated January 7, 2016 titled,  Brentwood lawyer suspended from practicing law after court upholds panel’s discipline summarizes the details of the complaints which had been filed with the Board of Professional Responsibility against Connie Reguli. The judgments were appealed, and in a December 28, 2015 filing in the Supreme Court of Tennessee at Nashville, Board of Professional Responsibility v. Connie Reguli, an opinion was given after a thorough review of these matters. Again, this is an interesting 18 page document which any layperson can understand.

On page 6, it is stated, “The Panel concluded the aggravating circumstances applicable were (1) prior professional discipline of Ms. Reguli; (2) Ms. Reguli’s bad faith failure to respond to requests for information by the Board; (3) dishonest or selfish motives of Ms. Reguli; (4) Ms. Reguli’s refusal to recognize the wrongful nature of her conduct; and (5) Ms. Reguli’s substantial experience in the practice of law.”

On page 11, it states,  “Ms. Reguli next contends that the Panel’s findings of fact and conclusions of law were arbitrary and capricious, an abuse of discretion, or unsupported by substantial and material evidence”. How ironic that Reguli has charged the Panel with the same behavior which she exemplified in her letters to President Trump.

What motives lie beneath the noble statements of a tax exempt mission?

Connie Reguli’s desire to form a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation to receive tax exempt donations to support her leadership of a “grassroots movement using social media”, is in my opinion, meant to usurp the authority of government agencies charged with protecting children from neglect and abuse. Why do I use the word usurp rather than oppose, or reform? The stated purposes of Connie Reguli’s nonprofit foundation are highly unrealistic in their broad undertaking, given the vast problems which the CPS and judicial systems must deal with on an ongoing basis.  So very possibly, there must be another unstated purpose for this group which entails a resentment of established authority.

Reguli’s Family Forward  Foundation mission is nothing more than words without a grasp of real life, mere politicized rhetoric that they “exist to build family integrity”, promising that “institutionalization of children through foster care will a thing of the past”, and “your dollars are put to work providing advocacy and support for families, assessing the needs of families, organizing resources to fill those needs, and educating lawmakers, judges, and attorneys on family justice.” Think about what has just been stated. 

These words show a desire to usurp the authority legally granted to government agencies, while yet providing no realistic basis on which this foundation can perform its mission.  Will these volunteers fulfill the job descriptions of a vast network of employees presently functioning in those very capacities, or will they create a utopia where families are no longer dysfunctional?  If you get rid of foster care, what will you replace it with? I see no workable solutions even offered.

While sounding noble, these words are in fact shameless, given the truth that the effect of such a movement shows that their actions are not about seeking a reform which respects the rights of all parties involved.  Rather, such efforts serve to lower the bar of intelligent reasoning in the public domain.   Connie Reguli’s motives also appear to harbor a conflict of interest, particularly as she expresses a continuing bitter personal resentment towards those she had conflicts with in the past. The very sober issues of CPS deserve an analysis which entails respectful fact finding and a deeper understanding of law; something which no grassroots movement of disgruntled name callers can ever engage in.

FYI: Robert Baty Sounds Off On Facebook’s Failure To Have An Appeals Procedure When the Arbitrary Blocking of the Ability To Post Is Mandated

Robert Baty discovered today that he has been blocked by Facebook from posting for 30 days; yet they do not state the source, nor the substance of the complaint.  This gives an unfair advantage to those who desire to censor reasonable and fact based speech, over those who are willing to let real debate thrive in the public domain.

On kehvrib.com, Robert Baty’s website, he expressed his frustrations in the following article, titled Are Witches Real?-Alyssa Carone- 2/10/2018!

STEVE QUAYLE’s BIG HEAD

GenSix has commissioned this likeness of an ancient Inca skull, which bears a striking resemblance to Stephen Quayle, the man who tried to TradeMark the name  his parents gave him at birth.

LOOK AT THAT MOUTH!  LOOK AT THE SUPERIOR BRAIN CAVITY! IS THIS THE LONG AWAITED UNVEILING OF THE TRANSHUMANIST SOURCE OF STEVE QUAYLE’S MARKETING GENIUS?

We are one month into 2018, and it looks like it is high time for those of us who have been hibernating, to wake up and smell the long-term-storage coffee wafting from Camp Quayle.  Let’s begin by checking out the advice given on the December 4, 2017 Hagmann Report which featured  Steve Quayle of Renaissance Precious Metals and Bob Griswold of Ready Made Resources, in Preparing For a Historic Year: Bill Federer, Steve Quayle and Bob Griswold.

The entire hour long infomercial with Steve Quayle and Bob Griswold displayed their business ads

At the beginning of the second hour, Doug Hagmann suggests as a Christmas gift, the True Legends DVD set for only $119.00 which covered the 2017 GENSIX conference, saying that “it was a steal at twice the price.” Really? Say, Doug, how about you paying twice the price and getting two copies, and sending me one for free?

Or better yet, send the free one to a commenter on your January 11th show, JohnnyRebKy. He commented, “I like Steve Quayle but I’m starting to notice every time he speaks it’s to promote or lead people into buying something.  It gets hyped hyped hyped for months.  Already starting on the buildup to next Branson conference.  You can’t even watch the conference from last year unless you got 90 bucks to buy dvd’s from him. Why should such a “spiritual” and “movement of God” be restricted to those who can afford a 90 dollar CD???  I know the guy needs funding for his work but that’s a bit pricey.  I am physically disabled and it’s rather disheartening to know I can never get the information.  I paid for all the True Legends videos but the fact I can never afford the Branson presentation is very disheartening.  I was really looking forward to steve speaking about the pre-adam world.”

(Well spoken, JohnnyRebKy. I would send you this information, but I cannot afford it, either. Pricey is the diplomatic way to describe the products of Steve Quayle.)

Doug then introduces Steve Quayle to his listening audience as, “just a great, tremendous friend, uh, I swear he’s my, I call him my older brother because that’s what it feels like, and of course, Robert Griswold”. Both of these guests have extensive experience in selling long-term-storage food products, and both are dealers in Numanna foods, thus their keen eye for noting all those critical situations which might bring new clients to their Merchandising Circle.

For example, just four minutes into this interview, Steve Quayle jumps in to warn us, “We are facing a food apocalypse…Fuskishima has been the biggest covered up extinction level event in history…the Mississippi River drying up…chemtrails spraying… “.  To assuage our newfound fears, he suggests that giving a food storage program would make a good Christmas present!

The Price of Angel Food Cake Just Sky Rocketed

Quayle then says, “My new poem for you tonight is give the gift that keeps on giving, and keep the people on the land of the living“. One minute later he references his co-guest saying, “We both are dealers for NuManna which we’ll give some specials out later and probably one of the best food sources in the country, in my opinion”.  He then suggests that “It’s a Biblical principle, you’ll sell your birthright when you’re starving to death”.  Bob Griswold then chimes in to tell the listeners that one time when he was in Pakistan, a woman tried to sell him her child for $100. And he mentions Keith Lowe’s book, The Savage Continent which described the aftermath of World War II food shortages  in Europe, suggesting “We see those nations that gave into doctrines of demons…”

It must be the End of The Age, because Quayle is at a loss for words

At the 2.11 mark, Steve “Chicken Little-the sky’s falling” Quayle complains, “economic Armageddon means nothing anymore.  There are no terms that anyone can possibly uh, uh, use anymore because all of those words have ceased to be effective, it doesn’t matter if you use catastrophe, collapse uh, uh, uh, starvation, we’re watching Venezuela starving, you know still the mainstream press doesn’t say….”.

Steve Quayle, don’t blame mainstream media for the overuse of words which you frantically employed to get your listeners to believe the false credentialed V-the Guerrilla Economist who was telling people to get their money out of banks NOW! What words did you NOT overuse in all those years of screaming that the world was coming to an end?  Your solution?  BUY GOLD—BUY SILVER–BUY LONG-TERM-STORAGE FOOD, which you just happened to sell.

Continuing at the 2.16 mark, Steve Quayle says, “…gentlemen, the underground bases, the military bases, the elite bases, they’re stockpiling and storing because they know what comes tomorrow.  Unfortunately, the people that are in denial may not see tomorrow.

Feed your night time paranoia by purchasing a nifty set of night vision glasses

So then it is Bob Griswold’s turn to mesmerize us with his favorite emotionally loaded words: the debt crisis level, threats of nuclear war, threats of civil war, threats of EMP, disease, you name it”. He adds, ” You know Steve, when I was in prayer one time, God asked me…”, and he brings into this Infomercial, personal insights he received from the Godhead.

It’s all your fault if the descendants of Steve Quayle can’t make a quick buck

Finally at the 2.27.54 mark, Steve Quayle gets to the point, saying, “..and I’m gonna encourage everybody, look NuManna, and this, if you want to consider this an infomercial, call it an info save your lazy you know what commercial, because you can still get, you can still get the NuManna food and…” (2.46)”..You better start paying attention because the Deagal Report says that you know within a matter of less than seven years, the population in the United States goes from down from 340 million to about 60 million people…” (2.47) I want to give out NuManna‘s phone number again because I think it’s uh really important and usually they made this the stuff they have…the stuff they’re made for me is the SQS special, so you got to ask them for that and they also discount the prices so uh you know you can either call NuManna or you can call Tyler, he works for me, actually he’s my son.  It could be kind of like calling Joe but you can call him…”.

SOUP OR BOWL SPECIAL: IT’S ONE OR THE OTHER, WHO CAN AFFORD BOTH?

Okay, let’s see what kind of a deal we can get using Steve Quayle’s discount to get his exclusively made for him combo pack.

Long Term Storage Food Affordable for the Elites of this world

I am still reeling from sticker shock after viewing the price of $12,500, which thanks to the special Steve Quayle discount code, the price dropped down $4700 from the original price of $17,200.

The Man Who Thinks His Name is Trademarked

What can I say, all this Marketing Genius from a mere man who claims to have trade marked the name which his parents gave him at birth. Trademarkia.com would seem to call Stephen Quayle a purveyor of false information.

Trademarkia.com currently displays this information on the trademark of Stephen Quayle, noting that the status is Abandoned-failure to respond or late response as of 6/24/2003.  It is now 2018, more than 15 years later, and still no response, it would seem.

So now that you have been psychologically bullied into shelling out $119 for a set of DVDs for the 2017 GenSix conference, and you are eagerly awaiting delivery of a one year/4 person combo food pack specially designed by Steve Quayle himself for the discounted price of $12,500, do you still have money burning a hole in your pocket?

Well then, how about an expedition with Steve Quayle to Rome and Sardinia in a few months?  There is only room for 30 “guests”, so it is high time you prove once and for all that you are not one of those in denial who may not see tomorrow.  Not only is Quayle not worried about tomorrow, he is not worried about May 20-27 or  September, 2018 when he plans on unveiling his BIG HEAD at another GenSix conference. That $7,995 price for the expedition does not include round trip transportation to and from Italy, by the way.  For those LAZY YOU KNOW WHATS, How much do you think Steve Quayle shelled out to have HIS BIG HEAD sculpted like an Inca Giant?  And what is this Transhumanist Creation made out of?  Chickenwire and paper mache? Wood and plaster? Cake with fondant icing? Concrete?  According to Steve Quayle, and I have to agree with him on this one, the brains of Transhumanist robots will be inhabited with demon spirits.  In the case of Steve Quayle’s BIG HEAD, it looks like it could house a legion of Marketing Geniuses.

 

FYI: Robert David Steele and Earth Intelligence Network Issue Motion for Entry of Default Against Queen Tut

I was wondering when this would happen, as Queen Tut aka Susan Lutzke had failed as of November 15, 2017 to respond to Plaintiff’s Complaint. The Plaintiff is asking $15.5 million dollars for defamation in this Federal lawsuit.  On January 23, 2018, the Plaintiffs filed a Motion for Entry of Default Against Defendant, “Queen Tut” a/k/a/ Susan A.

FYI: The Joseph Edward Interview with Robert Baty on The Baby Holm Case

Joseph Edward published his hour long January 24, 2018 interview with Robert Baty regarding the Baby Holm Case, which I have linked here.

In and of itself, the Baby Holm Case has no great import, when one considers the many cases which various state Child Protective Services personnel routinely encounter. What is of interest in this matter is that Sovereign Citizen Movement, anti-government and anti-CPS groups have been using this case to gather supporters, by promoting a false story which undermines the  evidential and judicial aspects of this case.  Robert Baty, among others, has sought to counter those falsehoods with real evidence and logical arguments.

Joseph Edward, the Interviewer in this audio,  is thirteen years old, a young man who attempted to take on the “structuring” proposition which Robert Baty, a former IRS Appeals Officer, had dared Kent Hovind or his “champions” to openly debate. There is a 50 year difference in the ages between Joseph Edward and Robert Baty, which makes it an uneven debate match.  However, Joseph displays an intelligent mind, and I am hoping that once  he enters into those areas of life’s responsibilities which force a different real world type of knowledge and wisdom on us, he will one day prove a good debater.  That said, all Christians need to observe that rule laid out in the Bible about not respecting persons and about becoming impartial judges. If it is truth we are after, how one searches out evidence and the meaning of laws, rules and regulations is important in the application of judgment and justice.

Joseph Edward also became interested in that side branch of the Kent Hovind Story, which is under discussion at  Robert Baty’s  FaceBook group called Understanding the Baby Holm Case. As a result,  he interviewed Baty on January 24, 2018, posting his audio to his YouTube channel. The purpose of this closed group Facebook discussion of Baby Holm is to “provide a more open and honest environment in which to present information about the child custody case which has been developing in Alabama since October 2016.” And I think that Joseph Edward accomplished a good interview with Baty.

Baty also adds that with regard to the Baby Holm case,  “of particular interest to me is the involvement of a sovereign citizen type by the name of Brady Bynum.  He appears, along with the parents themselves, to be the architect of a plan of action designed to thwart any serious effort to return custody of the child to the parents in an expeditious manner.”

Brady Bynum is also friends with Ernest Land and Kent Hovind, which I had been writing about. And here at Tracking the Leopard Meroz,  I have been taking a closer look at those Christian Alternative Media radio hosts, who have subtly promoted sovereign citizen movement legal theories, via the guests which they exalt before their large audiences.

THEOlogy of The Lies of The Devil and the Ministry of Self Justification

“Find something to do for God with your life.  Even if you don’t know how to serve Him, you can serve God as a bad example”. Kent Hovind, quoted in a 9/20/16 article by George B. Lujack “The Late, Great Kent Hovind; Kent Hovind’s Fall From Grace”

Let’s hit the ground running with this one:  Theodore Valentine Valenzuela II AKA Theo V. Valenzuela AKA Theodore Valentine, AKA Racer-X AKA Mr. Wilson,  a 31-year-old man, has a website with his wife Lenae,  called Lies of The Devil.com His logo features a blood-red V in the middle of the word devil.  I suppose this V represents the Victory sign which Theodore often displays with his hands in his videos, or perhaps it features the V’s in his full name. At any rate, the V is centered in the word deVil.The Who Is Record for this domain gives as its creation date, August 7, 2016.  The Registry Registrant ID is Theodore Valentine. The Registrant Organization is AZMMVP, with address of 44823 W. Desert Garden Rd, Maricopa, AZ 85139.  The Registry Admin. and also the Registry Tech ID is Theodore Valentine, and the Admin. Organization is Lion of Judah Ministry, LLC, of 1111 Private RD, Private City, DC 11111.

Lies of the Devil logo with red V in background

There are several falsehoods in this registration.

*The legal name of Theodore Valentine is Theodore Valentine Valenzuela, II.

*The address given for AZMMVP, Arizona Multi Media Video Production, AKA Az Media Production, legally belonged to another party on the date of this registration, as Theo had sold his house at that address on April 26, 2016, more than 3 months earlier to Stanley and Cara Foster, for $162,000.

*Lion of Judah Ministry, LLC was not a legally registered LLC until December 5, 2016, four months after this website was registered.  I looked in the Arizona and Florida and District of Columbia Secretary of State records and found nothing; however, Lion of Judah Ministry LLC ID#377-948 was formed on 12/5/2016 and registered in Alabama,  by Theodore Valenzuela of 3651 Woodley Road, Apt. 2, Montgomery, AL 36116.  The address given for the website registration as 1111 Private Road, Private City, DC 11111 is a false location.

What we are looking at today is a bad example of a Christian ministry, which serves to undermine Biblical truth as the lies of the deVil. The subtitle to this website heading is Ripping Souls Away From Satan and Delivering Them To Jesus Christ; a dramatic, but theologically unsound representation of a Christian ministry’s work in preaching salvation by faith alone.

Without Dissimulation?

When I first began to take a look at this website, I found this resume:Note the use of a misleading version of his birth name. Others have questioned this, and he has yet to prove that he has legally changed it. Why is this a problem? Because it makes it more difficult for others to discover if he has lived a life of integrity or whether he is trying to cover over past indiscretions. Theodore implicates his wife in this falsehood,  because her surname would not be Valentine, but Valenzuela.

When Theo was living at the Hovind compound, he would hide his face in group photos, as duly noted by Robert Baty on his website, kehvrlb.com

This photo is a cropped version of a larger photo which I found on Robert Baty’s website kehvrlb.com

Theo does not identify where or when he obtained any degrees in investigative journalism and media production. He did at one time have a webpage and an active Facebook page for his business, Arizona Multimedia and Video Production. He describes his business as providing, “web design, development, e-commerce and programming”, as well as “photography, video production, and editing services, flash animation and graphic design, CD and DVD duplication, social networking and media integration” since 2008.

The Subtle Takeover of the Kent Hovind Vindicators 

Theodore Valentine Valenzuela, II was once touted as Racer-X, the anonymous, behind the scenes defender of Kent Hovind, whose voice can be heard on Rudy Davis’ and Doug Hagmann’s internet broadcasts.

On January 24, 2015 Free Kent Hovind.com was created using the Registrant name of #FreeKent Hovind with the false address of 111 N. Free Kent Hovind Campaign, Anonymous City, state of BC, and zip code of 70101, which is for Costa Rica. The Registry Administrator was Theodore Valentine, of Lion of Judah Ministries, LLC.  As noted in the beginning of this post, this LLC was registered in Alabama on December 5, 2016, 22 months after this website was created.

After Theodore had departed from the shadows of the Kent Hovind Alabama compound, a message was publically posted on a Facebook page called 2 Peter 3, which would indicate that his departure as technical expert, left some matters unfinished. Kent Hovind wrote,  “Theodore why are you using my name and reputation to promote your new business without my permission after you left and refused to give Steve the passwords to our web site?  You did great damage to us for no reason.  I trusted you brother and I feel that you betrayed me and the cause of Christ.  You do not represent me- Kent Hovind nor 2 peter3.  Please call Steve and give him all the passwords and stop using my name or reputation in any of your promo or advertising like this.  I pray your efforts to serve our Lord bare fruit but you chose to leave CSE and DAL under bad terms and need to make it right before God can bless.  You need to fix this brother.” (This message was documented by Robert Baty on a  2/8/2017 post on his website  kehvrlb.com.)

Rudy Davis making a public stand on behalf of Kent Hovind

Another source of anecdotal history of Theodore Valenzuela is found in a June 25, 2017 Rudy Davis’ Lone Star 1776 YouTube broadcast, The Video I hoped didn’t have to be made.   Davis claimed that he had worked very closely with Theodore over a period of several months, up until the July 8, 2015 release of Kent Hovind from prison.

Rudy Davis explained, “The history is that Randall Boaz Owens who was Kent Hovind’s trusted cell mate, I guess, had made a promise to Kent, I don’t know the details, but when he went to start this webpage called 2 Peter 3, well Randall did that, and we were, you know I had taken 6 months off work, and we were working with Randall and thousands of people across this country, maybe tens of thousands of people, to make noise and shine light about Kent Hovind being unjustly incarcerated and facing an additional 20 years in prison for mailing a letter.  Well, Theodore comes out of nowhere and calls me up and of course he runs a business, he has a business that makes websites.  That’s his, that’s his job is to build websites, so he had experienced, a you know, in that area, and we put him in contact with Randall Boaz Owens and they got together and eventually somehow Theodore finagled his way to take over the whole website and Randall was out of it and in hindsight that was a very bad decision and it probably, I somehow contributed to that because I thought it was very, like a blessing from God to get someone with experience to build this website; but in hindsight we should have stuck with Randall Boaz Owens because he was the trusted individual…”

2 Peter 3.com was created April 16, 2011 by Randall Owens, which shows that this former cell mate of Kent Hovind was interested in this project some four years before Hovind was finally released from prison. Presently, search engines redirect this address to Dr. Dino.com. The original website was titled, Kent Hovind Official Website/2 Peter 3, Creation Flood End Times.

The Hypocrite Who Attempted A Take-Over Attempt of the ministry of Exposing Kent Hovind 

On April 20,2017, in a Lies of The DeVil YouTube video, Theodore Valenzuela published Part I-Kent Hovind Official:  Fraud, Huckster, and False Prophet which has now seen almost 12,000 views with 3.4 thousand subscribers. At the 4:15 mark, Theodore says, “I literally believed that this guy was telling the truth wholeheartedly and when I believed it, I prayed to God and God just put it in my heart to just do everything I could to help this guy and I put 4 or 5 months of my life on hold without building my business- everything on hold- to try to help this individual.  I spent tireless hours so did a lot of people but I helped him form his defense.  I, I helped form the defense he used in court that got him out of prison, OK?”

At the 5.23 mark, Theodore continues, “he’s going to come out and he’s going to call me a drug addict, I don’t know why he might call me a drug addict, I don’t have no idea; he might call me a drug addict…”

A drug addict?  Perhaps this might be the reason?

Arizona criminal case in 2012 against a Theodore Valentine Valenzuela that lived in Pinal County.

Back on October 26, 2012, a Theodore Valentine Valenzuela II, was charged in Pinal County, Arizona, where his home was located, with resisting arrest, and the use of physical force on a peace officer while being questioned for a DUI offense. Probation followed, ending in 2014.

Is it believable that Theodore, who will not disclose where or when he got his “degrees in investigative journalism and media production”, provided the legal defense to get Kent Hovind out of the legal scrape he was in, at the beginning of 2015?  Was Theo  really so self-sacrificial for a noble cause, that he left his business in Arizona to flounder, to come out east to Pensacola, to help Kent Hovind? Or did Theodore have something else in mind?  After Hovind’s release from prison, he was not permitted to be around felons on his DAL property. How was it helping Kent Hovind to meet his probation requirements, for Theodore to hide his face and identity as he stayed on the CSEM properties, just after he had finished his own probation in Arizona?

Theodore Valenzuela, Board of Directors Secretary of CSEM, Inc. 2/23/2016

Well apparently, Theodore so impressed Ernest Land and Kent Hovind with his credentials that when the Articles for Incorporation for Creation Science Evangelism Ministries, Inc. were filed in Florida on February 23, 2016, Theodore Valenzuela was made a Director and Officer, serving as Secretary.  His address was noted as 29 Cummings Road, Pensacola, FL 32464, one of Kent Hovind’s former properties.

In an article, Liability of the Directors of a Nonprofit Corporation, Elizabeth Rayne of Legal Zoom addresses the Board of Director’s Secretary position, by noting, that there is a process called piercing the veil which allows the court to address potential liability…”It can occur if the board does not keep appropriate records or minutes, hold required meetings, or follow the correct voting procedures for Board Resolutions or Actions”.

Is it reasonable to believe that Theodore Valenzuela, who has a proven propensity for falsifying registrations with false information, hid his face in photos, and hid his legal identify, had faithfully performed his legal and fiduciary responsibilities as Secretary of CSEM in Florida?  I am not sure on what date Theodore was removed from that position.   On July 24, 2017, months after Theodore V. Valenzuela moved out of the Alabama Dinosaur Adventure Land compound, the Florida corporation became inactive, and was replaced by Creation Science Evangelism Ministries, Inc., registered in Alabama as entity ID #397-041.

Kent Hovind’s Perpetual Money Machine Ministry

“…good people that want to love the Lord go to DAL”. Showing his favorite hand signal, once again.

Recently, Robert Baty noted that Guidestar had published two details from a 990 for CSEM,Inc. EIN 81-1424226 showing receipts of $680,103 and assets of $456,048. Despite all of Kent Hovind’s problems, he still is able to attract donations for his new enterprise, which may explain why so many persons from questionable backgrounds have hovered around the celebrity of  Dr. Dino, whose claim to fame was to obtain a PHD from a diploma mill, based on a notoriously badly written  PHD thesis, which became available to the public by Wikileaks, of all places.

The Lamentations of Theo for Kent Hovind’s Punk Dude Hypocrisy, but Not For His Own

Continuing with the April 7, 2017 Part I of Theo’s expose of Kent Hovind as a fraud, at the 5.34 mark, he continues his lament about his part in the Kent Hovind campaign, saying, “I gave a lot of my life to help him get out of prison.  I helped form his defense, raised a lot of money for him, on top of other people, to get him out of prison and then went and then and I actually helped, went to Pensacola, sold everything I had eventually, I might get to this, eventually.  So everything I had to help him build CSE on lies, OK?  So, it’s my word against his.  It’s my word.  The guy who helped him and did everything to help him get back up there.  My word against his, OK?”

“I just understand that, um and in fact people that are trying to expose Kent, they’re more of a Christian than Kent Hovind who say he’s, at you know um Lord help me, because honestly, like I’ve gone through times I was just so angry, I was so angry and, and, and the people the people that most of those people are good people, most people that go there are good people that want to help the Lord and go to DAL to help the Lord, people that like Kent Hovind, they don’t know he’s a fraud.  They watch him on YouTube and they think that, that’s who he really is, they see his DVD’s, they think that, that’s who he really is. (Shouting) ANYBODY that gets to know Kent Hovind  turns on him, not because they’re Judas Iscariot or whatever the case may be, because they know he’s a fraud and I’m gonna go piece by piece into this and I’m telling you, I can’t, him, you’re a punk, you’re a punk, you’re a spoiled brat who your parents gave everything to you, OK.”

Theo showing he cannot control his temper.

“You’re, they might have taught you all this, others but you’re a punk dude, OK.  You’re not going to fool me.  You’re not going to punk me.  I know that you thought I was just some kid or whatever the case may be who was lying about what I did with the Free Kent Hovind Campaign, and maybe lied about my history, or I don’t know what you think, dude, you’re a narcissist, you’re a punk and here is the thing, I, you are such an evil bastard, you were such an evil person and I hope that people wake up and they figure it out who you are.  You have no idea how many times I ranted and raved to people who are trying to call me and saying, Oh, just need to forgive him….”

(10.28) “people at DAL, you know, it’s a cult, OK..”

After defaming Robert Baty, Jim Lott, Randy Dunn and Peter J. Reilly because they confronted the “Hovindicators” with the factual realities of Kent Hovind’s legal problems, Theo now tells us that Kent Hovind is a Tax Protestor and that he is the Exposer of Kent Hovind!

(10.52) “Kent Hovind literally broke the law…he says he’s not a tax protestor, but I’m going to show you proof that he’s a tax protestor…I’m going to show you proof he’s a tax protestor…fooled big time that I didn’t dig deeper into this guy’s past…” (11.11) “I should have digged into his past.  I would have never helped him get out of prison, never, never, never, never.  I would have seen right through him, but here’s the thing, I’m a good person and I got fooled so…”

Let’s travel back in time through the Wayback Machine, where 101 pages of FreeKentHovind.com have been preserved.  It was on November 21, 2016 that Robert Baty on his kehvrlb.com website had commented that this website had disappeared. Here is an example of an article, which I presume Theo wrote as an investigative reporter.This article was written April 24, 2016. The unnamed author, presumably Theo, because he liked to hide his true identity at that time,  has an interesting anecdote about the effect which Kent Hovind’s material had upon one mass murderer. It reads, “Jeffrey Dahmer, a mass murderer and cannibal, admits that evolution cheapens life and led him to destruction. Thank God he was saved right before he died.  Jeffrey Dahmer was led to Jesus Christ via Creation Science Evangelism material. Dr. Kent Hovind was told that his “non-crime” was worse than rape…He has helped countless people turn away rom the psychopathic tendencies our public education system breeds and was treated like a monster…”.

Whereas heaven rejoices when one sinner repents, it seems these sensationalists prefer a questionable tale about Jeffrey Dahmer who was delighted to discover a new legal defense to explain his murdering lusts: “the theory of evolution made me do it! defense”  Thank God Kent Hovind faked a PHD thesis to become Dr. Dino!

I don’t know who came up with this piece of artwork, but freekenthovind.com did not like it when Randy Dunn created a satire website on Hovind and Dinosaur Adventure Land. How does one parody a parody?

Robert Baty is one person who has argued that the quote about a judge saying that Kent Hovind’s crimes were  “worse than rape” was a falsehood; one among many, which are part of the false legal narrative of the defenders of Kent Hovind.

The Wayback Machine Archive of Free Kent Hovind.com shows the following page, which is one of several, attacking the persons who had made a concerted effort to counter the falsehoods which were being publicized by the Free Kent Hovind Campaign.

Free Kent Hovind article accusing Robert Baty and Jim Lott of intimidating Hovind supporters

Some of the accusations made by the Free Kent Hovind website against those who were exposing Kent Hovind as a fraud (i.e.Robert Baty, Jim Lott, Randy Dunn and Peter J. Reilly), included: harassment, intimidation, obsessed criminal internet stalking, malice, being crazy, dangerous terrorists, paid government agents, stalking children and teenagers, causing emotional and financial distress, making false claims, laughing at them, and making “multiple death threats towards Theodore, who is helping CSE Ministries”.

Now that Theodore is claiming to be revealing the fraud of Kent Hovind, it is interesting that he got rid of his website, Free Kent Hovind which documented that he was very well aware of the facts and evidence which supported the finding of the court that Kent Hovind was a tax protestor. He knew what the facts were, because he attempted to shut up the voices of those who were exposing the evidence of Kent Hovind’s fraud.  And now that Racer-X has come out of hiding, and attempting to play the hero who warns others about Kent Hovind, it does not appear that he has publicly apologized to those who spoke the truth and were defamed by the Kent Hovind Defenders.

In this post on Theodore Valentine Valenzuela on Robert Baty’s website, it was noted that on February 9, 2017 that Baty had written Theodore, saying, “If you cannot even admit, clearly, openly, unequivocally to your important history with Kent Hovind, there is likely little else we might properly advance by the way of conversation in an effort to explore just what that history involved in all its relevant aspects and your role as a “star witness” regarding Kent’s antics since his release from prison.”  He then quotes Theodore regarding Theo’s desire to be left alone to pursue his new ministry, and notes that Theo had said, “I commend you in an effort to show the truth regarding who Kent Hovind really is”.

That last crumb thrown to Robert Baty in a personal email does not undo the scathing accusations which had been thrown against Baty and others who had taken a public stand for the truth against the “false legal narrative” which had been promoted by Theodore Valenzuela and others. That statement does not represent a proper apology and admission of wrongdoing for covering over the fraud of Kent Hovind.

The Ministry of Offering Free Book Downloads that anyone can already get for free from Amazon Books

One of the ministries of Theodore and Lenae Valentine Valenzuela’s Lion of Judah Ministry, LLC is the website LaymansBookstore.com.  On this site, they have been displaying an increasing inventory of free books to download, much like they do at Amazon.com. The book which they have been featuring for awhile, which one can purchase for $49.95 is shown below.The author of Mysteries of The Scriptures Revealed:  Shattering The Deceptions Within Mainstreams Christianity Deciphering and Revealing End Times Prophecies Making A Straight Path for the End times Saints is George B. Lujack.

George Lujack, who has written articles at the Cowger Nation website, is friends with Steve Quayle who had quoted him as being influential in his decision to promote the cause of Kent Hovind  on the February 10, 2015 show of the Hagmann Report.  Lujack says that he was raised a Lutheran but later he became a “non-denominational, biblical Christian”. He had been employed as a New York City police officer for 20 years, from 1987-2007, and an International police officer for the UN Task Force in Croatia and also in Kosovo on two separate occasions. He claims to be an “independent, non-ordained, Messianic minister”.

Promoting the Spurious Theologies of George Lujack and the Old School Armstrongians

It is curious that Theodore and Lenae are promoting Lujack’s book because as their Lies of The DeVil website “The Front Line in Spiritual Warfare” shows as part of their Statement of Faith:  “We worship love, serve, and believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit-three persons that make up one God/Creator of all things.” In other words, they claim to believe in the Trinity. Lujack is not a Trinitarian.

Now one thing I know from my experience in the Independent Fundamental Baptist churches is that they concentrate on sound doctrine and also separation from those that hold beliefs that depart from what they have defined as sound doctrine.  In the Mysteries of the Scriptures Revealed book which Theo and Lenae are selling for $49.95, George Lujack devotes a chapter on The False Doctrine of the Trinity:  Why The Holy Spirit is Not a Person and also another chapter entitled, GOD: Triune or Biunial?  Why are they selling an expensive book which espouses what most Christians would consider to be false doctrine?

George Lujack explains in his Introduction that he was influenced by Herbert W. Armstrong, and he complains about those who took over that ministry after Armstrong died.  As I recall, those who took over did overturn many of Armstrong’s teachings, and brought this ministry back into what might be termed more traditional teachings, similar to the Baptists. But Lujack prefers the false teachings which Armstrong publicized during his lifetime.

Also, Theo has called Kent Hovind a fraud, and while Lujack has come out and expressed his dismay with Kent’s second marriage, he still promotes Kent Hovind in this book as “perhaps the greatest refuter of Evolution who has ever lived”. That statement is disturbing if true, for not only evolutionists, but other creationists have shown that Hovind does not display any depth of understanding of his own material.

The Desire to Have a Hand in Building Another Person’s Ministry, When Your Own is Built on The Lies of the DeVil

The other website of Theo’s, called Workers In Christ.net,  reflects the aspect of the Lion of Judah Ministry, where Theo desires to counsel others on how to build their own ministries, based on his personal experiences. One of the things which Theo and Lenae have done recently was to travel to various cities and “evangelize” on the streets.

I looked at a few of the videos documenting his techniques and it is clear that he has not sought the wisdom of those who are experienced street preachers and evangelists.  In Miami they were out walking the streets in darkness, which is very unnerving to others on the streets who probably think Theo is nuts or a potential robber.  If you want others to engage in Christian conversation on the streets, it must be done in daylight or a well lighted protected area, so others feel safe in your presence. I looked at the Seattle street walking, which was done in daylight, and Theo’s asking total strangers if they liked DVD’s was not a good conversation starter. All I can say is that if a person wants that type of ministry, wisdom and commonsense needs to prevail, and if you lack that, stay home!

Rudy Davis Gives His Summation of Theodore

One cannot cover over past wrongdoing by creating a ministry which presents  a new self image. It should be remembered that Theodore claimed that it was God that sent him to Kent Hovind, leaving behind his Arizona business to flounder.  Then he was enraged when things did not go his way.  But if God had sent him, why should he complain about the consequences of doing God’s will?

Perhaps Rudy Davis was right about Theo when he wrote Peter J. Reilly a letter which was reprinted on the ytmp.blogspot.com in an April 26, 2017 article, Theodore Valentine The Hovindicator With Buyer’s Remorse.In summary, it is difficult to persuade others of the truth of Christianity, if it has had no real impact on your own being.

 

The Context, The Whole Context, and Nothing but the Context? So, Douglas Hagmann, What is the CONtext of Your Promoting Victurus Libertas, as they Unveil the Freedom Revolution?

On the December 12, 2017 Hagmann Report,  Dave Daubenmire commented to Doug Hagmann, “…you know for people to take stuff out of context-you guys get a lot of that stuff as well. Those who aren’t watching my show every day and don’t understand what, what came before this morning’s program are not, not going to understand what it is that we’re talking about.”

Dave Daubenmire, Steve Quayle, Doug and Joe Hagmann, Sheila Zilinsky, V the Guerrilla Economist and others all portrayed Kent Hovind, aka Dr. Dino of Dinosaur Adventure Land, as a man persecuted for his religious beliefs.   This Massive Skeleton in The Closet of the Christian Alternative Media is going to haunt them as they promote their anti-government rhetoric,  no matter how much they try to bend reality to hide their unloosing of the Sovereign Citizen Movement.

CONTEXT refers to those parts of writing or speech coming before or after a statement, which contribute to the full meaning intended by the author or speaker. An argument which narrows the words of a speaker or writer to the extent that the true intention and meaning has been altered, becomes falsehood.

Thus, as I was reading the motions for dismissal filed December 15, 2017 in an ongoing  lawsuit, it was interesting to observe that one defendant’s attorney was arguing  that the plaintiff had failed to  provide the entire context of certain statements which had been made by the defendants.  On the same day, a transcript of the entire radio broadcast in question was provided to the Court by the other co-defendant, in order to give the complete context of the quotations.

Since this is an ongoing lawsuit, I am not going to identify the details, but suffice it to say, that in my “unlearned ordinary citizen” opinion, that when the attorneys for the defendants decided to put into the legal record, the full context of the contested words, they opened a closet door which allowed an embarrassing skeleton to fall out.  For the very first item in the broadcast under scrutiny, regarded the 2015 legal problems of Kent Hovind.  At that time, Hovind had already served 8 plus years in jail for tax fraud, but in this broadcast, he was being held up as an innocent man who had been persecuted by the IRS and the judicial system because of his religious beliefs.

The Skeleton In The Closet of Christian Alternative Media, Kent Hovind aka Dr. Dino, suffers from amnesia whenever anyone mentions his sovereign citizen beliefs.

Some of Hovind’s legal and tax problems had stemmed from his reliance on the counsel of various persons involved in the Sovereign Citizen Movement who are anti-government and  who consider themselves above the law.

It is curious that an attorney who is attempting to show that his client’s controversial words against a plaintiff were within the legal boundaries of protected free speech, would place on the Court record, documentation which proves that the CONTEXT of the contested words included a defendant’s public misrepresentation of the facts of a lawsuit involving Kent Hovind, who was both a civil and criminal law-breaker.

The context of one’s words and actions is indeed an interesting topic to examine, especially where the subject has developed a severe case of amnesia with regard to their own personal history.   (See this short video for a reproval of Kent Hovind’s statement that he does not know what a sovereign citizen is).

As I scan the panorama of the recurring themes of the Christian Alternative Media over the years, the antigovernment rhetoric which is routinely pushed onto Christian audiences, is beginning to standout as the silhouette of the false legal theories of the Sovereign Citizen Movement.  This will become apparent as we take a cursory look at the website and broadcasts of Victurus Libertas, which one of my readers asked me to review. I had noticed this site when I had written about Robert David Steele and his #UNRIG campaign. But when I went in for a closer look, I was surprised by what I found that ties VL into the Sovereign Citizen worldview.

One has to wonder why 5 months ago the Hagmann Report, which claims 70 million downloads a year, decided to promote one of Robert David Steele’s favored internet broadcast co-hosts, Jim and Angie Blake of Victurus Libertas to greater prominence. VL now has 65,000 YouTube subscribers, which is 63% of the 103,000 subscribers which the long standing and the very popular Hagmann Report attracts.   One of the things which the Hagmanns, Robert David Steele, and Victurus Libertas share in common, is that in the recent past they all had heavily pushed the fake Pedogate stories into the public view.

On the surface, Victurus Libertas presents the image of believing in God, as their motto is based on Romans 8:31. Yet, as we shall later observe, their governing principle is in fact based on that opposing principle of God called Mammon.

Note that the Scriptures say, IF. In the case of Angie and Jim Blake, that “If” is a very large IF.

THE FREEDOM PROJECT

At the Victurus Libertas.com website,  owners Jim and Angie Blake claim that they are in the process of unveiling the Freedom Project, declaring “This is a MIND BLOWING project that will cost you absolutely NOTHING except exiting the Matrix.  In fact, you will be guaranteed sustainability and security against those who impose against us now.”

On this undated page titled, The Freedom Revolution, the Blakes claim that, “Last week, out of nowhere, we were contacted by an individual who has the means, the plans, the ideology AND the resources to help us all achieve what we so desperately want and need to do in order to free ourselves from the chains of the federal, state and local governments who have illegally enslaved us…Every Tuesday a new portion of insight will be released leading up the final unveiling of the project in it’s entirety-which is expected to be completed in early 2018.  The revolution is HERE.  How you deal with it is up to you.  You can do nothing and hope for the best, or you can control your own destiny and be a PART of the FREEDOM REVOLUTION!”

WHAT, NO VERIFIABLE CREDENTIALS?

Angie Miesner Blake, wife of James Anthony Blake,  refers to her Twitter account as Mrs. jab, and she says, “I am a truth seeker”.

Jim and Angie Blake reveal little of themselves, except that on their Facebook pages it appears that they live in Fort Worth, Texas, were married in 2009,and have 6 children between them from prior relationships. Without any supporting evidence, they claim to be activists, truthers, investigative reporters, and even critical thinkers.  Angie admits to having once been employed with Parkway Tavern, and Jim reveals on his Facebook page that he made an unpleasant discovery in the men’s room at some unknown job location. That’s quite a resume!

James Anthony Blake, host of Victurus Libertas, leaves us guessing as to his employment history. So a rough guess is that he is in his late forties and embarrassed to tell others what type of work he has done for the past 20 years

In September of 2017, the Hagmann Report featured a special interview of Jim and Angie Blake to discuss their Youtube broadcast channel, Victurus Libertas. This promotion from The Hagmann Report, as well as the repeated guest interviews of former CIA agent, Robert David Steele and former Congress woman, Cynthia McKinney, helped to advance their visibility and credibility.  But without a proper resume of Jim and Angie Blake’s employment history, we will have to rely once again on the vetting skills of the premier father/son private investigator team, Doug and Joe Hagmann, whose famous words of assurance, Trust me, folks!, caused their listeners to gloss over various fake  “Insider” sources.

It needs to be noted that Victurus Libertas (VL) also has relied on unnamed Insiders as their sources.  One of them claimed to be from the DHS, which caused me to wonder if Doug Hagmann’s Rosebud or DHS Insider, was being recycled. And then there is  FBI ANON…. Hagmann has claimed to have once worked undercover as a FBI operative, so I guess we should ask him to vet that person’s credentials.

MEMBERSHIP FEES:  THE DOOR TO INSIDER ENGAGEMENT (something Ex-Con Tax Defier, former IRS Agent,  Sherry Peel Jackson knows all about)

On the VL website which Angie heads as the Editor-in-chief, a page on Membership Levels provides a door to their  world of secret insider sources. The Basic Membership is $2 per month to support their efforts to “bring the truth forward for all to see while exposing corruption”.  This level gives the member “access to ALL worldwide news stories, be included in the weekly newsletter to stay updated on the website, as well as the VL Channel and you will have first access to EXCLUSIVE interviews from our CREDIBLE INSIDE SOURCES before anyone else.”

The Gold Membership is $5 per month which gives the Basic package plus “In addition, you will have access to 1-HIGHLY EXCLUSIVE interview per month, in which YOU will ask questions of a POLITICAL EXPERT, such as Robert David Steele, Field McConnell or possibly even Ron Paul.  We will have these HIGHLY EXCLUSIVE interviews set up each month….Your name will be used when we present the questions.  It will be just like you are interacting directly (with) the expert!”

The website, Galactic Connection.com featured a May 15, 2017 Victurus Libertas Channel Update called Under Attack But We Will Not Quit-Targeted Individuals.  As shown below, Readers and Viewers of VL can ask FBI ANON their own questions.

In the above screenshot, the Blakes ask for prayers, saying, “I never knew what the term targeted individuals meant until now.  I have empathy for all those that have been targeted by the deep state for telling the truth and exposing evil.  Pray for all those that have the courage to take on the swamp creatures.”  In the post dated May 16, 2017, which accompanies the video, Angie says, “We are fortunate and grateful to work with some really great insiders who want the truth to come out about the inner workings of our governments.  FBI Anon, most known for showing up on 4Chan from time to time with his AMA, has agreed to allow our audience to ask questions…”.

That is, those may ask who have paid for the $5/month Gold Membership.  When I was writing about Robert David Steele several months ago, I noticed that he limited his communications with the public by stipulating that he would only answer emails where the writer was also a supporter; i.e., gave him money for his #UNRIG campaign.  Some of the donations he received for Earth Intelligence Network he used to fund the various YouTube broadcasters which interviewed him.

So why would Field McConnell of Abel Danger, or “even Ron Paul” want to buy into this exclusive interview situation which might be viewed by only a handful of persons? Well, Field McConnell has interviewed Sovereign Citizen “Judge” Anna Von Reitz, which is a common denominator with the Victurus Libertas website. And we do not know if Ron Paul is even aware that his name has been dropped for commercial purposes by the Blakes.

Many Tax Defiers and Sovereign Citizen Believers Prefer the MLM model of defrauding their customers

There is an interesting link between Sovereign Citizens and the use of  MLM companies; one example which had been noted by this blog was that of Ernest Land, the Director of Creation Science Evangelism Ministries, connected with tax fraud Kent Hovind.

The exclusive interview method of enticing members as used by VL,  has the overtones of a common MLM strategy, where if the participant gets to a certain level, the customer gains access to an online resource center where certain vendors are allowed an exclusive arrangement.  Whether selling MLM Zurvita energy drinks, or VL Mugs, hoodies and shirts, or Sherry Peel Jackson’s Healthy Place products,  Victurus Libertas raison d’être is for commercial profit.  Truth is subordinate to commercial profit at Victurus Libertas; it is just another commodity to be bought and sold, like an over priced coffee mug.

Healthy Place’s Sherry Peel Jackson was once involved in the MLM Pinnacle Quest International (PQI), which got into legal problems with the Department of Justice. PQI was discussed in an October 12, 2010 article by Steve Rhode, called, Promoters of Debt Elimination and Tax Relief Scheme Get Hard Jail Time. Rhode explains, “PQI was an umbrella organization for numerous vendors of tax and credit card debt elimination scams. Some of the PQI vendors, such as Southern Oregon Resources Center for Education (SORCE), sold bogus theories and strategies for tax evasion. For fees starting at $10,000 SORCE assisted its customers in the creation of a series of sham business entities in the United States and Panama.  Other tax-related PQI vendors denied legitimacy of the income tax system on various theories and provided customers with a “reliance defense” that consisted of a paper trail of frivolous correspondence which a client could allegedly use as evidence of good faith if the client were prosecuted”.

Steve Rhode also notes that one of the speakers on the PQI’s Q1 audio course included “Sherry Peel-Jackson, a tax defier“. He goes on to say, “These individuals make false and fraudulent statements about the internal revenue laws..”.

In the screenshot below, Jim and Angie Blake of Victurus Libertas extol ex-con Sherry Peel Jackson as one of their heroes; therefore they have partnered with her to sell her Healthy Place products.

Sherry Peel Jackson is now out of prison, but nine years ago on September 11, 2008, the Department of Justice had issued a news release headlined, Four Year Prison Sentence Affirmed for Georgia Tax Defier:  Former IRS Employee Convicted of Tax Crimes. This notice begins, “The U. S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed a four-year prison sentence for tax defier crimes committed by Sherry Peel Jackson, a former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employee and tax preparer, the Justice Department announced today.”

The DOJ press release explained, “…beginning in 2000, Jackson willfully and intentionally did not file her own individual tax returns.  At that time, she also operated a tax preparation business and continued to prepare, submit and file individual tax returns for her customers.  For the next three years, Jackson intentionally did not file her tax returns, despite an income of more than $400,000 in that time period…In May 2008, a federal court in Florida found Jackson to have been advancing frivolous tax arguments at a Pinnacle Quest International (PQI) sales conference and in PQI promotional materials.  The court barred PQI and its principals from publicizing tax fraud schemes.”

Victurus Libertas features 3 interviews with Sherry Peal Jackson; the one on August 28, 2017 proclaims, Former IRS Agent Sherry Peel Jackson Reveals Her New Master Plan For Being Debt-Free and Healthy, and the April 23, 2017 interview was titled, Exclusive-Former IRS Agent, Sherry Peel Jackson Exposes Income Tax/Federal Reserve Connection.

Given the past history with the fraudulent MLM PQI, and the tax defier conviction and imprisonment of Jackson, I cannot understand how Victurus Libertas can view her counsel as worthy of consideration. But perhaps it has to do with their admission that they endorse the legal theories put forth by Anna Von Reitz, who is well known in Sovereign Citizen circles.

An Interview with self-proclaimed Superior Court Judge Anna Von Reitz aka Anna Maria Riezinger

On December 6, 2017 Victurus Libertas posted their full interview of Judge Anna Von Reitz on YouTube. Then on December 16, 2017, Jim Blake claimed that they were being “targeted and attacked after (their) interview with Judge Anna Von Reitz”. In the comment section, the Blakes added this information:  “FAQ – What kind of targeting? – A. Petty Vandalism, Electromagnetic, 3 dead batteries at the same time, Financial (not disclosing at this time), Prank phone calls by Private #’s, door knocking, window tapping…Also feel like a spiritual battle going on”.

One person commented that they were praying in the name of Jesus for them, and “I bind those targeting you!”, while another offered some white witchcraft advice, saying, “Stay full of love and compassion for each other and the ones around ya, the scalar energy weapons and phyic(sp) attacks are more or less beat the same way, Practice the good energy Magic I have used the defense spells successfully…basically a boosted prayer”. Jim Blake also quoted a scripture in the book of Revelation about the inability of anyone to close a door which God opens, and also their Victurus Libertas motif, If God is for us, who can be against us?

The Full Interview began with an advertisement for their 16 ounce mug and shirts, and at the 1.15 mark, Angie says, “Hey guys, I’m so excited tonight, our guest is a state Superior Court Judge…”.

The very first statement of the interview is a lie, and Angie Blake, if she were honest would have stated that their guest, Anna Von Reitz, has falsely claimed to be a State Superior Court Judge of Alaska.  But I suppose their guest would not have granted an interview at all, unless the co-hosts had pledged to lie on her behalf.  According to  Snopes.com on December 10, 2015 The Mind Unleashed published an article that had discussed the actions of “Judge” Anna Von Reitz’s attempt to get U. S. Marshalls and the FBI to arrest Congress and the President. In the screenshot below, we see this “Judge” title discussed.

quote taken from The Mind Unleashed 12/10/2015 article, “Judge Calls For US Marshalls & FBI to arrest Congress & the President”

At this juncture of the Victurus Libertas interview, there is a distinct fork in the road. If you want to honor and exalt a LIAR who claims she is an Alaskan Superior Court Judge, listen to the rest of the interview.  If you prefer to stay within the bounds of reality, click the interview off. I am not surprised that after publicly endorsing a woman who is delusional, that the Blakes are hearing tapping on the windows, etc. which they call targeting.

Victurus Libertas has entered the twilight zone known as the Sovereign Citizen Movement.  Except don’t ever call Judge Anna a sovereign citizen, she prefers state national. Her website is Anna Von Reitz.com, and  I have been reading some of her articles and noting the links to other sites, which I will comment on at a future date, as I continue to review the antigovernment biases of the Christian Alternative News Media.

Here is what Jim Blake summed up in his Targeted and Attacked video:  “Well, folks, it’s become painfully obvious that for the last 2 weeks we have been targeted by some very bad people and some people that did not like the message that was disseminated a couple of weeks ago by Judge Anna Von Reitz in an interview that we did, an hour and fifty minutes that we did with her a couple of weeks ago and if you haven’t seen it, you need to, because it is a well of information, it’s incredible.  Basically, basically she outlines how we as Americans have all been bamboozled by the Federal government, by England, by some very rich people, and powerful people, and people that are very greedy, that want to enslave all of us.  And the Federal government deems us all as corporate entities, instead of God’s creation with inalienable rights and we have all been bamboozled into thinking that we live in the land of the free, but how free are we really when 60 or 70 percent of our money goes into taxes.”

“We’re told every morning what time to get up, what time to have lunch, what time to go home, how much sleep we need, so we can continue doing this day after day after day, to put into the system to make others rich and powerful.  Well, Judge Anna Von Reitz does a very eloquent job of telling everyone what, what happened, how it’s still happening and how we can take our lives back all of us.  These people are not very happy with that message because when the numbers, when the people, find out what has been going on for so long, they’re not going to be very happy.  Well, we’ve been targeted pretty severely and so I’m just getting our message out saying once again, please pray for us. We’re probably going to go dark for the rest of the year- we will not be deterred, we will not quit….”

Besides indicating that he does not like to have to be told to be at work by a certain time, as I suppose he prefers to sleep in, I was curious by Jim Blake’s resentful claim  of being taxed at the 60-70 percent level, since the Federal Income tax brackets peak out at about 39 percent. Even at that level, income is taxed in progressive steps, other types of  taxes are deductible, etc., so it appears that Jim Blake is unable to give a credible analysis of the most basic realities affecting the middle and upper middle classes of the United States.

So how reliable are the opinions of the Blakes and the guests which they interview at Victurus Libertas?  If you are looking for an honest and truthful discussion of the “evidence” upon which Angie and Jim Blake, Judge Anna Von Reitz, Robert David Steele, the Hagmanns or Sherry Peel Jackson rest their arguments on, you would be better off to do your own independent research.

Ironically, Anna Von Reitz accused the government, in the Victurus Libertas interview at the 5.14 mark, that  “they’re doing a bunch of legalistic chicanery and semantic deceits in order to bring forward these false claims…”. This was stated by a woman who illegally claims to be an Alaskan Superior Court Judge, and who employs a bunch of legalistic chicanery and semantic deceits in order to support her false claims!  And I did not take her words out of context.

CONtext!  The whole CONtext!  And nothing but the CONtext! Say, that would make a nice logo on a very large coffee mug or hoodie.
