Folks,

Here is an interesting quote that came across my emails today.

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force." [Ayn Rand, The Nature of Government]

Kind of prophetic isn't it.

The purpose of this message is to provide another update.

Within a few days, we will be setting up a web page which will allow us to organize the information related to each of the cases we are able to cover.

At some point, I'll be looking for more volunteers to help cover trials and compile information related to each case.

I'm hopeful that we can post a full analysis of Larken's trial as well. The government did much wrong in that case. It is important that we expose them for the wrongs they committed.

Right now, I just wanted everyone to know we are working to organize a lot of efforts. Once again, let me say...this is far from over.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ayn Rand. What a thinker! I wish she was here now to give her keen advice.

What's happening with Tessa's trial?

I hope that a transcript of Larken's trial can be made public, for those many of us who weren't able to attend.....

I applaud your efforts to monitor the atrocities now becoming "business as usual" in the Court system. No doubt your efforts will expose the common thread linking all of the trials recently dealing with the 861 issues:
The absolute neccessity of avoiding the literal language of the code, regulations, and exhibits, that would inform any jury of the mindset of the accused. One of the problems that I have observed is that juries do not care about the accused, cannot relate to the intelligent research backing the claims of the accused, and have not been given reasons to feel empathy for the accused. The notion of a "jury of your peers" is ridiculous in light of the fact that jury members have not been charged with crimes and the accused have not served on juries. Reports have surfaced that in Simkanin's and Larken's trials at least one jury member fell asleep during the proceedings. Additionally, exculpatory evidence is disallowed, which would prove the innocence of the accused while the exclusionary, prosecutorial evidence is always allowed.

To anonymous who stated, in part, I applaud your efforts..... A cogent analysis of trial for all of us who oppose a thoroughly corrupt legislative, executive and judiciary. It demonstrates trail is no longer of ones peers, but trial by combat in which we, the opposing combatant, is caused to fight with both body arms bound, and available useful weapons constantly moved out of reach. It can only be accomplished by corrupt cowards in black dresses posing for the cameras as honest judges. Joseph Sugarman, design@dream-home.com
