Revote: UPDATE on DOCKET# 16-1464, Supreme Court: “The Citizens Case For a New Election”

ThinkWing Radio with Mike Honig

The 2nd petition for a new election ( Supreme Court Case #16-1464, The Citizens’ Case for a New Election) is scheduled for “distribution for conference” on September 25, 2017. The scheduled distribution means that at least one Justice wants to talk about it. Somewhere around September 25; the petition will be discussed. It takes four Justices who want to hear it in court for it to proceed.

Important notes on this new petition:

  • Better legal language
  • Plaintiffs with standing
  • Precedents cited

I will keep you posted as I learn more.

Daily Kos: Goldflame on the Current Crisis

Imagine this scenario: the current President of the United States has aligned with dark diabolically powerful forces seeking to dominate not just America but the entire planet Earth. Oligarchs, billionaires, organized crime, global corporations and religious fanatics have formed an unholy axis and for some time have been using whomever and whatever to achieve their goals: the deconstruction, dismantling and death of democracy worldwide. In their place, they will install authoritarian dictatorships that will gleefully allow unfettered access to the world’s remaining resources and riches, for a cut. They don’t care if they kill the masses, indeed that is their plan: they will have robots and AI as their workforce, cheaper easier to maintain labor that doesn’t need to be fed, doesn’t revolt, doesn’t require healthcare. They spy upon us all via drones on dragonflys, manage us through weaponized tweeting bluebirds, and monitor us through our electronic gadgets: microwaves, tvs, cell phones.

Sounds like a plot for the next blockbuster Star Wars movie, does it not? Allow the Resistance to welcome you to OSTSOW, that is, Our Struggle To Save Our World. This is real. This is now. I am but one character, standing in for Chicken Little, who grew up to be very big; you may have seen him, he just took a gig on the White House Lawn.

Hear my cries:

The sky is falling

If we are to preserve our freedom we must continue to steadfastly resist. As Heather Heyer’s mom Janet Bo said in eulogy at her daughter’s funeral, “we have to make her life count.” While it is heartening and necessary that people are uniting to fight hatred, bigotry, white supremacists, and racism, we need to stand together enraged against this morally bankrupt corrupt administration, as it is directly, completely and absolutely responsible for the current resurgence of hate and violence. Hate divides, division foments conquest. Hate is being manipulated by the aspiring conquerors.

The sky is falling falling

As heartbreaking as it is to continue to look forward while yet mourning the recent so very tragic loss of life, and deal with Nazis and thugs and haters in our streets and conduct a public discourse on the role of art and monuments in a society, while we are weary from months of resisting on so many fronts —  health care, the environment, pipe lines, travel bans, immigration, internet access, a freaking border wall, skeleton staffing, nuclear showdown, war mongering, Nazis, KKK — face forward we must. We must get out into the streets, face forward and look down the road. We must implement OSTSOW Plan B.

The sky is falling fast

Calling, writing, protesting, showing up at townhalls, marching, voting all are tantamount to resisting this slide into authoritarianism that IS occurring. Pressure on Congress to act must remain relentless and strong. It is quite apparent that Hitler’s playbook has been THE resource for the current administration. However, it is also more and more apparent that it is going to be up to US to stop what is happening. Consider the following three main avenues to removal:

1) Members of Congress have conducted legislation behind closed doors in secret in the middle of the night, they have not moved to impeach on any one of the many violations: emoluments, treason, espionage, dereliction of duty, obstruction of justice, nepotism, failure to provide national security, mentally unstable, unfit for office. Why has Congress not acted to impeach? Their agenda is deemed more important, or many are compromised, or are complicit. They have not upheld their Oath to the Constitution, and will be voted out this year, again in 2018 and 2020. The Republican’s Party is over. The truth will be exposed, eventually, and all will be held accountable.

2) The Supreme Court, on 9/25/17, has another opportunity in case #16-1464 to rule the election invalid as the States were not protected from foreign invasion of our territory in cyberspace. Indeed a treasonous collusion may be at the heart of why this administration won the electoral vote. Unprecedented, uncharted waters, not a certain remedy at all, certainly one most legal experts do not even want to entertain as it is risky, unlikely. Should they even decide to hear the case, the truth will be exposed, again, eventually.

3) Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation will surely result in enough evidence to prosecute many people for many crimes, but it will take months, even years we are told. He should have all the time he needs as the scope of this undertaking is staggering; the case is akin to the rare 1000 year storm. That is, if he is not first fired, or if Deputy AG Rosenstein does indeed even act upon his findings. The truth will be exposed, much of which may remain classified, but we will know, again, eventually.

All of these legal paths to the removal of this malignancy seeking to overtake and rule our country as a tyrannical dictator will take time and resources for them to get it right. Given the swift descent into the hell of an authoritarian rule that we are experiencing, We the People are out of time.

The sky is falling…   the sky is falling

We do not have the luxury of waiting for our institutions to turn this ship around. The wheels of Justice grind slow, rightly so. Our institutions are not going to save us. We must save ourselves. It is up to us. We have to act now before it is too late. Hitler said he could have been stopped early on if anyone had tried to smash his progress.  “We are the ones we have been waiting for” as Barack Obama, the poet June Jordon, and the Hopi Elders have all maintained. Hence Plan B, because

The sky really is truly falling

We must withdraw consent. We must take to the streets massively, peacefully. We must remain there until our demands are met. We must exercise our right to assemble, our freedom of speech. We must engage in nonviolent civil disobedience. We must petition our government for relief from our grievances. Engage in boycotts. Organize a national strike. We must prepare to sustain those efforts until our demands are met:

1) POTUS & VP resign; cabinet and all appointees recalled, all Executive Orders rescinded;

2) Congress appoints interim caretaker until President is elected as per Constitution of the United States, Article 2, Section 1;

3) Sweeping election reform, including a paper vote;

4) A new election.

5) A bipartisan independent commission established to investigate how this was allowed to happen and the prosecution of all involved in the execution of this treasonous coup. Maximum penalties imposed for all convictions, including the death penalty.

America the world is watching.

Now is the time we honor those who gave their lives that we may know freedom,

Now is the time we honor the words we know by heart:

Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All. 

Here is where you dear reader, come into play. Take this message, share it with your fellow resistors. Ask them to truly check their gut. Work across the nation to come together to unite all of us who are in opposition to this threat to democracy. Face forward, be ready to implement plan B. Prepare for hardships, financial sacrifice, loss of comfort, loss of life. Buy food, water, candles, fuel, first aid supplies. You got a glimpse of what we are up against this past weekend in Charlottesville. The historical record bears witness that what to us is the Unthinkable has happened regularly throughout history. Let us together interrupt the cycle and truly achieve Peace on Earth with Justice for All.

Let not our last cry be that we did not heed Chicken Little

And the sky did indeed fall.


“Stand ye calm and resolute,

Like a forest close and mute,

With folded arms and looks which are

Weapons of unvanquished war.

Rise, like lions after slumber

In unvanquishable number!

Shake your chains to earth like dew

Which in sleep had fallen on you:

Ye are many—they are few!” 

excepts from “Mask of Anarchy” by Percy Bysshe Shelley in reaction to the slaughter of peaceful protesters 


Why do you allow these men who are in power to rob you step by step, openly and in secret, of one domain of your rights after another, until one day nothing, nothing at all will be left but a mechanised state system presided over by criminals and drunks? Is your spirit already so crushed by abuse that you forget it is your right – or rather, your moral duty – to eliminate this system?

ACLU Complaint: Does the Mental Health Code Supersede the Bill of Rights?

   Charges of perjury were reported to Washtenaw County deputy John G____, and he said this was submitted. Nothing is done about the charge, that is, I am simply ignored, so that the same may or similar may occur again. I am afraid to call and ask what is being done.

 

Complete description of situation 

 On Mach 24, I was seized in my driveway, drugged and held for 20 days for a compulsory psychiatric evaluation, despite having violated the rights of no one, done not a single thing that I have not a perfect right to say and do (such as speaking at my own address), nor even having said a single thing that is false. I was, contrary to law, not informed of the “charges,” for three days, during which time I was taken to the University of Michigan psychiatric ward briefly and intrusively evaluated, tested and drugged without counsel, and transferred to Promedica Hospital in Monroe. There I was held for seven days before gaining access to counsel, and compelled to wait five more days before an independent evaluation could be gained, and a full 20 days before appearing, still not bodily, before a judge. Upon hearing the truth of some of the circumstances behind some of the charges, it was determined that they had no right to hold me, and I was released, despite the effort of my sister to have me committed and further drugged.

   The objects of my complaint are many, and could not be listed on the form, but include the Washtenaw Sheriff, the judicial branch, University of Michigan Hospital, and the relatives filing and submitting the perjurous complaint. Promedica too is in violation of the law requiring that I have access to all records they have kept on me, as has been denied repeatedly, beginning from the time I was preparing for my trial.
How do you think the ACLU can assist you?

   You cannot remove the permanent stigma that results from such an episode, but I would like to have a lawyer and to seek compensation. At present, all who I once worked for shun me, in part because I am nearly disabled, but also due to this slanderous and perjurous accusation.

   The question is whether the Bill of Rights, the First, Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments take precedence over such things as the Michigan mental health code and the current fashionable practice of compulsory submission to mental health evaluations. On a philosophical basis, we reject the assumption that modern psychology has knowledge of the soul, much as one might reject the Medieval first principles that allowed government to torture people while calling it “help,” and “cure.” Everyone knows that the principle of psychology are an “eclectic” and contradictory hodge-podge, which, with some good ideas, remain anything but knowledge or certainty, though the assumption that they know is quite profitable for the drug industry. I asked one doctor, who was trying to give me addictive and toxic drugs, “on one hand, you have chosen for me a lifetime of addiction to toxic substance, on the other, you say I think too fast and do not keep the proper hours of sleep and waking.” The lawyer said I was the easiest case of this sort for which he had gained release. One point was that I had managed to avoid being drugged for ten days and seemed fine, except that I have these funny conspiracy like theories, such as that of Trump-Russian election fraud, which both branches of Congress are now considering, but were no where near to considering, say, in December and November! must just be me! Ja, I have this abnormal paranoia that I might be seized in my driveway for nothing on the decree of some deluded relatives! This stinks to high heaven, and in addition to a lawyer, I need a private investigator. The federal and state executive have made it clear they will do nothing but hurt me. Another is indeed that Oxy was a scam and a conspiracy, which almost no one held in November, but is now common opinion. Common opinion is not scientific knowledge of the soul.

   Now I want every record, such as that blocking my entrance to Canada, expunged, and to be compensated, beginning with 20 days, 24 hours at 15 ? per hour, and quite a few apologies, as from my bother for helping by saying that I was mad for thinking that the tech is “watching me.” What was madness is now common sense. The lack of a Fourth Amendment subjects us, including philosophy, to the harmful rule of utter ignorance. Or do they care to tell us about dopamines, chemical “balance,” and the health of the soul? They will surely begin by demonstrating the refutation of Plato’s Allegory or the cave. restore the Fourth Amendment, or you will NEVER have another free election. Oh, but it must be just me! The Holy Spirit, by the way, is also banned from speech if modern psychology takes precedence over the Bill of Rights.

   Where no crime is committed, no ones rights violated, nothing done that one does not have a perfect right to say and do, do relatives, for reasons of filial and political disputes, have the rights to have one seized just because they are poor?

  This conflict arose out of filial and political circumstances. Despite holding a PhD in politics, I am financially ruined, and partially disabled, due to losing teeth, an eye twitch, joint problems and an unknown digestive disorder. I care for my elderly mother, her house, yard and 5 cats* while living mostly in a shed. I was accused twice prior to the March 2 accusation, once when in the presence of one sister I told the homeowner/mother that she was out of cat food, and the sister was angry because she had just loaned money for the gas bill. Social services was called on me, and was persuaded to leave me alone by the threat that if “talking” to anyone cost me five dollars in time I do not have, I would sue. An additional point was that, for example, an opioid addicted relative had spent a week there, with an additional cat, and for seven days I was literally the only person who manually washed a single dish. My chores far exceed three hours per day seven days per week, which must be considered plenty in exchange for the rights of a renter, though I pay more when I can work, it costs the homeowner almost nothing to have me here, in circumstances similar to a foreign worker.
I had also been working on political matters on the internet, and had learned that the t.v., phones and especially the computer were spying on us by camera and microphone as well as other unknown means. I received much interference, including death threats, one while working on Supreme Court Case #16-907, which I immediately reported to police. My mother, though, is quite moody, as we think, due to prescription drugs, and for some time, on certain days, would forbid me to try to explain even simple matters, flying into a tantrum especially if I expressed any limit to my ability to keep up with dishes and chores, or to keep concentration while working on the internet. She reported to my brother that I think the t.v. is watching me, and Social services was called a second time, this time with arms, so that my life was indeed endangered. I had turned off default settings for Windows 10, through which I was indeed being spied upon for over two weeks, placed tape at the top of the computer, and heard just two days after being accused of insanity that our executive agencies had left vulnerabilities in the tech that indeed allow foreign governments to hack what data they cannot buy from companies allowed to suspend our Fourth Amendment guarantee of security in our persons, papers, houses and effects. One indeed appreciates this amendment when under a possible death threat, as blogger was killed in Bangladesh, even by elements learning his itinerary and meeting him at an intersection.
The police arrived with John G___, who I knew from reporting the death threats, which I took quite seriously. He brought with him another nice agent who was very interested in whether I had read the Koran, and in my having written on the last book of the Bible. I cannot read the Quran anymore without thinking of whether it is quite safe, though the book is important to contemporary political studies, and I will include this point in a First Amendment complaint. Then the social workers came to try to persuade, or in hindsight trick, me into coming along for their nice evaluation, and it is here my relatives learned that I could not be taken away without consent unless I were a danger. So they drew up the perjurous accusation.
The main point of the perjury is that I threatened to “beat his nephew J___ head in in with a baseball bat.” What actually occurred is that, when I received the death threat, I tried through three different women to get a message to J____, this sister’s son, that this was not the time to be sneaking around this property at night, as I had indications was occurring. I also had two questions about suspicious things he had done here. He was sent away just before I came here, about four years ago, for stealing, including his grandmother’s oxy. The mother then said I had “threatened to kill J____,” and would not allow five efforts to correct her error. My sister indeed assaulted me in my living room when I tried to explain what I did say, which I of course have a perfect right to say, and spoke this for his own protection. One death threat included the threat to seize and torture me, and I hold a black belt in Shotokan Karate, though I have never struck a single person, even in many years of classes. Indeed, I have done a bit of thinking about justice and the use of force, as well as about rights and the U. S. Constitution. I may indeed have said that if a male did to me what my sister had done in technically assaulting me, I would indeed kick his ass, in a conditional sentence, the first clause being conveniently removed.
Additional accusations are all like that, perjury spun out of an animus inspired one sided view. I have text message conversations up to just before I was seized, in which three Trump supporting relatives insist that I “get help,” and I try to explain my circumstance, which they had taken it upon themselves to judge. My Uncle, who I had asked to look at the death threat on my Twitter account January 28, failed to find this, the least serious of three or four death threats, but did conclude from partisan animus that

” I fear that Mark is only one step away of doing something really scary” “He has gone from an extremely nice, educated, caring person who everyone enjoyed talking with to an extremely agitated, unpredictable, frightening and scary person.”***

I have worked for both this uncle and this sister, and was a supporter of Ben Carson together with him and my father. I had tried to talk with these Trumpsters about politics, trying to explain why I think we have got our nation into a whole lot of trouble. This uncle forwarded e-mails out of context to my brother, the one who tried to have me taken away for realizing that the spy-tech was spying on us. I warned this uncle too about the Trump plan to attack Chicago (Remember?), as he has a son and grandchildren there. I also famously predicted, as in a blog, that the Trump-Russian plan would have us “send our sons and grandsons out in brownshirts and receive them home in boxes.”**  All this is allowed so long as government acts for twenty days on one false side of a story, so that Washtenaw is quite liable, as are the hospitals. The truth could easily have been known. It remains for this uncle to explain what outside influence there was on him from the Trump organization, and how he influenced my sister in about five counts of demonstrable perjury. She asserts, for example, that I said I have “no time for lifesaving medical help,” when she knows that I said this in answer to why I do not follow her prescription determining that I need to see her friend Jake, and “get help.” After all, she once worked at a veterinary clinic. Following her perjurous accusation, without even informing me of its content, University of Michigan psychiatrists made diagnoses on the assumption that I was “threatening relatives.” They took my liberty for 20 days, from which alone, because poor to begin I will never recover. I could have been shot had I become the least upset, asserted my nights or indeed only been subject to accident, and that danger continues.

Notes: *Incidentally, two of the cats were dumped here by this same sister. Due to obligations to my creditors, I have considered myself unable to own pets, though I have been stuck with cats on two occasions, at quite an expense for one near homelessness.

**Too, having asked this uncle to help publish my book, and offering to double this rich man’s money, I also sarcastically offered to let him invest in a carpentry casket business, since under Trump this might be trending, if indeed there are such resources remaining to us. Perhaps the harshest thing I said was, “Do you have enough money yet?” But the answer “no” indicates that this too, and the implied dishonor, was misunderstood. Such statements were misunderstood, and without asking me to clarify, acted upon. My uncle has a “PhD” in “Education,” but the study did not progress for him beyond the fundamental question of merit pay for teachers, similar to the best of what one might find at Trump University. In his dissertation, he barely raises the question of what merit or virtue is in education, leaving this question to a democratic opinion process, no doubt of others with as much or more to say about what virtue is. I asked if he knew that I had written on the first principles of psychology, but then I realized that he does not know what a “first principle” is, or what the word (archai) even means. (No one really knows what a first principle is.) But he has literally never encountered this in his studies, and does not care to encounter it or try to understand it. I overestimated both his intelligence and his virtue, which, as shown, can indeed be dangerous. And whose delusions have indeed caused genuine harm? I have not even said a single thing that is not true, as the mad as well as those in error do, of course so far as I know, or I would correct this), and have indeed taken a great deal of flack to speak truths that are crucial for the good of our nation. And believe it or not, in saying I had received apparently Trump and Russian death threats, I was accused for “Saying things I could not prove!” As though one ought never speak without demonstrable, certain knowledge, especially when accusing another of being “scary” and “dangerous” endangering their lives and ruining the economies of various others.

***Indeed, when one receives a death threat, it is generally understood to be the fault of the one delivering, not the one receiving the threat, and the crime is assault. I was told by two Trumpster relatives, when I told them they had placed me in danger of being shot legally, that if I were shot, Castiled, it would be my own fault. Had I but exited my shed with a coffee cup in my hand, no one would do a thing but bury me, which is why it is important that government leave people alone when no rights are being violated by them.
