Brian’s Column: The Motor City Witchcraft Trial(s)

In sham hearing, judge-sullied jury convicts Doreen Hendrickson of integrity
Are you next?

A girl is accused during the Salem Witch Trials

Simple as that. The comparisons to the Salem Witchcraft trials are apt, where people accused by the church elders of being witches were obliged to either:

  1. admit to witchcraft (~ Doreen falsifying a tax affidavit form) and throw themselves on the mercy of the court to perhaps only suffer imprisonment (in Doreen’s case, resulting in stating income—federally privileged earnings—which the government might then assert to require a tax payment), or
  2. deny being a witch (~ Doreen filling out a tax affidavit form legally and truthfully), from which the judges assume defiance, and thus conclude the person is a very dangerous witch who must be killed (in Doreen’s case, be torn from her family and home to a federal facility in Virginia for several months).

Special Column: Still Time to Stand Up for Doreen Hendrickson

… and truth, liberty, and justice

IMG_20140721_090844Really, people, the issue in this case goes far beyond the suppression of liberating knowledge of the tax law. We have a bizarre case before a (second) jury where Doreen stands accused of criminal contempt of court for refusing to follow specific instructions from a federal judge to knowingly and intentionally falsify a tax form (which is an affidavit asserting what one believes to be true under penalty of perjury).

Yes, right here in River City. If Doreen is convicted, then by the precedent of the Motor City Witchcraft Trials, you or I or anyone can be forced to state, say, “I am a terrorist,” on pain of incarceration… with torture in the offing. And just like admitting one is a witch, you may receive a lesser penalty: e.g. hanging rather than being stoned to death. Seriously, if Doreen is not acquitted anyone will have to obey any raving fiat of a federal judge or face indefinite detention and undefined arbitrary punishment. That means US, knuckleheads.

Brian’s Column: Ch 6: We the Jury!

Hendrickson_Announcement

(From the title of Mickey Spillane’s classic I, the Jury.) The grand jury and trial jury are powerful tools to arrest runaway US fascism. Jury power is people power.

[From Leaving the Sandbox.] Speaking about ‘the Law’…4thBranch

Let’s see, roughly a year ago, as our LP of Michigan state convention was approaching, an author of a book was making the rounds of LP sites—I’ve been Webmaster of the LPM since November 2009—and he sent me a note about his book about grand juries, The Hidden 4th Branch: A corrupt government’s worst nightmare. He asked for the LPM to pass a simple resolution to support grand juries investigating and indicting corrupt government behavior.

Which I was glad to do. Continue reading

Movie Review: Up in the Air (2009)

Hendrickson_Announcement

Smooth maneuvers __ 8/10

Up in the AirRyan Bingham: How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you’re carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life… you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knickknacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV… the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home… I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office… and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other to live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are sharks.
