Robert S. Lasnik is a treasonous Senior United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.
U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik on Tuesday (July 31, 2018) blocked the imminent release of blueprints for 3-D printed guns, hours before they were set to hit the internet.
The decision blocked a settlement President Donald Trump’s administration had reached with the Texas-based company, which planned to put files online on Wednesday.
Eight states and the District of Columbia on Monday filed a lawsuit to fight a June settlement between the federal government and Defense Distributed allowing the Texas-based company to legally publish its designs.
Judge Robert Lasnik is clearly a traitor, for he has no legal authority to issue such an unlawful court order in violation to the First and Second Amendments of the United States Constitution.
UPDATE: August 2, 2018
Despite Judge Robert Lasnik’s treasonous ruling, NBC News reported on Code Is Free Speech, a coalition of five West Coast gun rights groups, posted the plans, claiming the publication was protected on First Amendment free speech grounds.
Plastic guns are created in the same manner as anything that is printed in 3-D: The machine stacks layers of material to form an object. But guns made by 3-D printers have a particular risk factor — they’re untraceable.
Back in 2013, Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson posted a video of him firing the Liberator — all plastic and 3-D-printed, save for a metal firing pin — and uploaded the plans online. According to CNN, he was served with a cease-and-desist order from the U.S. State Department a few days later; the State Department argued that Wilson’s plans may have violated International Traffic in Arms Regulations because he released the information to people outside the U.S. To this we must ask, “When did international law override the highest law in the land – The United States Constitution?”
In June 2018, Wilson came to a settlement with the Trump administration that implied he would be able to post his plans, according to The Verge.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) tried to pass last-minute legislation blocking the publication, saying, “American national security is going to be irreversibly weakened because of the actions of the administration.” His effort was blocked by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), who raised First Amendment concerns, according to the Sentinel.
A lawyer for Wilson criticized the restraining order as a violation of his First Amendment rights. According to NBC News, Defense Distributed was not responsible for the publication and had agreed not to post the documents, pending court rulings.
John Paul Stevens is a treasonous American lawyer and jurist who served as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1975 until his retirement in 2010.
Retired Supreme Court Judge John Paul Stevens wrote an oped Tuesday (March 27, 2018) in the New York Times calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.
Via The New York Times:
Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement schoolchildren and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday. These demonstrations demand our respect. They reveal the broad public support for legislation to minimize the risk of mass killings of schoolchildren and others in our society.
That support is a clear sign to lawmakers to enact legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons, increasing the minimum age to buy a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establishing more comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms. But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.
Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states led to the adoption of that amendment, which provides that “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century.
Apparently the traitor John Paul Stevens should be reminded of the fact that Stalin’s firearms confiscation was a tremendous success for the socialist state.
The Constitution of the United States is one of the greatest documents in history, and recognizes something incredibly important: that our rights are given to us by God, not by our government.
Second Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
We, the People of the United States, should not stand by while these precious rights are taken from us. The Second Amendment guarantees security, it does not threaten it, and every man and woman in this great nation has a right to use it to protect themselves against tyranny or any other threat.
ANY ATTEMPT TO INFRINGE ON THIS RIGHT should be fought by the people of this nation. We should not allow anti-gun zealots and tyrants to blatantly ignore the Constitution and infringe on our rights.
The Second Amendment is vital for our liberty, and we need to defend it from all traitors like John Paul Stevens.
Susan Oki Mollway is a treasonous federal district judge on the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii.
Federal Judge Susan Oki Mollway is doing everything she can to nullify what the voters of Maui legally created on Election Day 2014.
In an historic effort, those voters passed a ballot measure temporarily blocking Monsanto and Dow from continuing their toxic GMO and pesticide experiments in the “open-air laboratory” of Maui.
Monsanto and Dow then turned around and sued to nullify that vote, and the County Government of Maui, betraying their own citizens, joined forces with the two corporate behemoths.
Judge Mollway now has the case before her.
In her very latest stalling move, she’s postponed any action until June 15, 2015. Meanwhile, Monsanto and Dow are allowed to continue poisoning the people of Maui.
Mollway’s justification for her latest stall? Between now and June 15, the Hawaii State Legislature MIGHT pass a bill that decides the future of Dow and Monsanto on Maui and thus overrides Maui voters; and therefore waiting is the best option.
This, despite the fact that the relevant agriculture bills now sitting before the State Legislature are receiving zero attention. At the moment, they’re dead ducks.
So what message is Judge Mollway really sending? It’s obvious. She’s nudging and winking at the Legislature, hoping they revive one of these bills or invent a new one and pass it. Soon.
She wants such a bill to make it clear that Monsanto and Dow can continue their GMO/pesticide experiments without interruption, regardless of what the voters of Maui have decided. She wants to destroy the ability of a vote to make any difference.
Since when does a sitting Federal Judge postpone making a judicial decision because another branch of government (the legislature) might enact a law?
In case you’ve forgotten, there are three branches of government, and they’re supposed to limit each other’s power.
What Mollway is doing is treasonous and absurd.
This would be like the US Supreme Court stating, “We are about to enter another round of decision-making on Obamacare—but we’re going to wait, because the Congress might possibly enact new legislation that clarifies the points we’re supposed to debate…”
Yes. Might. Possibly. And a hundred UFOs might land on Maui in early June and render, de facto, all governmental decisions null and void.
Why doesn’t Mollway just come out and say, “Look, there is no way I’m going to stop Monsanto and Dow from doing what they’ve been doing on Maui. I’ll employ any strategy to accomplish my objective. If anyone has suggestions on how I can achieve this, please email me. I’m open to all ideas. For example, the Maui voters were temporarily disabled on Election Day because a solar flare hit Hawaii and caused synaptic chaos. Or, Monsanto is actually a group of messianic extraterrestrials here to save us…”
Better yet, Mollway could simply declare Maui a judicial monarchy, appoint herself Queen, and cancel all voting privileges.
Under the cover of court gibberish and rigamarole, that’s what she’s doing.
Is there an appeals court that’s ready to push her off the case and off the bench? Or are they working for Monsanto, too?
Victoria A. Roberts is treasonous United States federal judge.
Judge Victoria Roberts is full of dirty tricks when it comes to implementing the heavy hands of the authoritarian federal government.
A prime example is the case of Doreen Hendrickson, a mild-mannered and demure mother of two. Someone you would likely see at a church picnic rather than in a jail house.
Thanks to Judge Victoria Roberts, she may be incarcerated very soon. Denied her basic rights in the court of law, Doreen Hendrickson was convicted of contempt of court on July 25, 2014.
Her tale is certainly unusual.
Doreen Hendrickson, along with her husband Pete, are libertarian activists who file tax returns in an unconventional way and encourage others to do the same. Because of this, Doreen was charged by the federal government with defying two court orders.
“One commanded Doreen to repudiate her previously-filed, sworn tax returns and replace them with new ones containing testimony dictated by the government,” her husband Pete Hendrickson said. “Doreen was ordered to swear to her personal belief in the testimony she was ordered to make and to conceal the fact that the returns she was ordered to make would be coerced and false.”
In short, Doreen was faced with an ultimatum.
She could obey the court order and say she falsified a tax return (a felony), or she could stand by her word and her conscience by refusing to obey the court order that would force her to perjure herself. Doreen did what was right and chose the noble option.
Now she may pay a huge price for such integrity.
“I am accused by the government of having committed a crime for refusing to obey an order to swear to facts I do not believe are true. I agreed to obey the order if I could also simply add to my signature that I had been ordered by Judge Victoria Roberts to swear to the facts. That didn’t suit the government however. Not only must I obey an order to swear to something I do not believe, but I am not allowed to indicate that I’ve been ordered to swear under threat of imprisonment.” – Doreen Hendrickson
When you take a closer look at Doreen and Pete’s activism and the ramifications it could have if widely adopted, it becomes clear as to why the federal government feels so threatened. They are desperate to make an example out of them.
Whereas many complain about federal government corruption and do nothing about it, Doreen’s husband Pete developed a plan to help people protect their economic freedom while chipping away at federal power. He outlined it in his book, Cracking the Code, which in 2003 released the incredible information he compiled about the income tax and the 16th Amendment.
“The limited nature of the income tax is not a matter of my opinion,” Pete Hendrickson says. “In addition to the clear words of the law, dozens of United States Supreme Court rulings agree with my research and analysis, while no Supreme Court rulings support any alternative view, including the broad misunderstanding of the law the IRS likes to encourage.”
Although the information offered in Cracking the Code was not secret, it was deliberately kept hidden from the public for many years by the feds’ and their lackeys.
For generations, Americans have been filing tax returns erroneously and paying more than their ‘fair share’ to Uncle Sam. This truth had fallen by the wayside over the years, but thanks to Pete’s research detailed in his book, it has been revived. Since Cracking the Code was released over a decade ago, tens of thousands have taken his advice and received complete income tax refunds.
Hendrickson estimates that at least $2.3 billion has been forced out of federal coffers and back into the rightful hands of hard-working Americans.
“All of these refunds have been thoroughly vetted by the government before being issued, and all have issued even while the government has striven mightily to suppress the knowledge of the law by which these claims are made,” Pete Hendrickson said. “Cracking the Code invokes the mechanism provided by the Founders for keeping the State restrained and obedient to the law.”
However, this success has come at a price for Pete Hendrickson. Because of the overarching implications that his ideas could have in restricting federal power, he and his wife have come under constant attack by the feds. Falsifying and trumping up charges to discredit and destroy their opposition is one of their common tactics to maintain power.
Ever since Cracking the Code was released, the feds have been trying to destroy the Hendrickson family. Pete has already had to serve jail-time, and now his wife may be forced to do the same.
Doreen was not allowed to reference any Supreme Court cases that would have demonstrated her innocence to the jury.
She was not allowed to reference the thousands of stories from Americans who received refunds because they filed tax returns based off of information obtained from Pete’s book. Government attorneys lied about a relevant statute and tried to prevent giving the text of the statute from going to the jury.
Mrs. Hendrickson was not even allowed to get through her opening and closing statements. She was taunted by the treasonous Judge Victoria Roberts and not given the proper time to make her case.
To put it quite simply:
This case was a miscarriage of justice. This was a kangaroo court. This was a railroading. This was a dog and pony show. It was a disgrace to everything that America was founded upon.
“Judges don’t get too far in the system by remembering what the law is and who it’s for,” court-watcher Brian Wright said. Wright penned a book called the Motor City Witchcraft Trials about Doreen’s case. “The current lot of judges at all levels has deteriorated into yes men to whatever mobster, especially federal with DHS and the national security state apparatus, tells them to dance.”
To add insult to injury, the jury was instructed by NOT to consider the Constitution of the United States while considering the verdict. They were told by Judge Victoria Roberts, “It is not a defense to the crime of contempt that the court order was unlawful or unconstitutional.”
This twisting of the rule of law, common sense, and basic human decency resulted in what would have been otherwise a completely incomprehensible guilty verdict for Doreen Hendrickson.
At a time when the United States houses the largest prison population in the history of the world and jails are busting at the seams trying to house all of these offenders, a temperate homemaker will possibly be behind bars soon merely for obeying her conscience and standing on principle.
In spite of posing a threat to nobody and committing a ‘crime’ that is highly dubious, to put it mildly, she could face YEARS in prison regardless.
However, this story is not over.
We are not forced to allow this travesty to occur unabated. Government officials can be pressured by the public. If local citizens of southeast Michigan can flood the court room at Doreen’s upcoming sentencing hearing, we can put the fear of God into this treasonous Judge Victoria Roberts.
Judge Victoria Roberts will know that all eyes are on her. She will know this story will not die quietly. Our actions could conceivably affect how Doreen is sentenced.
Hopefully there will be many journalists and activists showing up to her court hearing to make sure this story does not go unnoticed. If we don’t stand for Doreen Hendrickson now, it could be us or our loved ones who the government comes for next.
It is time to say enough is enough. Now is the time to stand up for a good person who desperately needs us.
The hearing takes place on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 10:30 am at the following address:
231 W Lafayette Ave
Detroit, MI 48226-2702
Fighting corruption requires sacrifice. It takes blood, sweat and tears.
If we show up in full force to Doreen’s sentencing, we can make a powerful statement that corruption in the Judicial system will not be tolerated. All individuals deserve a fair shake in court, and Doreen clearly did not receive that.
We must show solidarity behind this noble woman and fight alongside her on behalf of her innocence.
Reggie Barnett Walton is a federal judge on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. He is the former presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) was established under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978.
According to the Federal Judicial Center website, FISA “authorized the Chief Justice of the United States to designate seven federal district court judges to review applications for warrants related to national security investigations.” In 2001 the Patriot Act expanded the court to eleven. At least three of the judges must live within 20 miles of the District of Columbia. Further, the judges have terms of up to seven years, and review warrants.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center also notes that the FISC can “hear applications for and grant orders approving electronic surveillance” and “physical searches” for the “purpose of obtaining foreign intelligence information” on foreign citizens in the U.S.
In May 2007, Chief Justice John Roberts tapped Judge Reggie B. Walton for the FISC, and made him presiding judge of this secret court. For the following seven years until his term ended in 2014, Judge Reggie B. Walton has greatly expanded the ability of the federal government to unlawfully spy on U.S. citizens domestically and overseas.
At an FISC hearing, the government is not required to show evidence of criminal activity or of probable cause justifying a search warrant for foreign targets. Rather, the feds only need show the target of the spying is a foreign power or its agent. In the case of an American citizen or resident alien, the Attorney general would certify that the target may be involved in the commission of the crime. And because everything is in secret, the target of the surveillance does not have the opportunity to appear before the hearing or even know it is being targeted.
The court, which approves government spying programs, approved the surveillance operations revealed by Edward Snowden, the former contractor for the National Security Agency. Snowden leaked the NSA programs that have collected massive amounts of data on Americans’ telephone calls and internet activity. The American Civil Liberties Union has asked the court to release its opinions on the phone surveillance program, a request President Obama wants FISC to reject.
Since that time it was learned the NSA even snooped on the European Union.
As for the traitor Judge Reggie B. Walton, due to the secrecy of the FISC, we cannot possibly know the full extent of his work on the court. But at the very least, it is known Reggie Barnett Walton is a traitor for taking on the unconstitutional role of Big Brother.
Updated Information – November 2, 2014
On October 30, 2014, federal judge Reggie B. Walton of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia entered an order dismissing a lawsuit filed by True the Vote, a Houston, Texas-based non-profit organization focused on “voters’ rights and election integrity” against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The order alleged that the IRS had improperly delayed granting their application for 501(c)(3) status and targeted them as a conservative organization.
One of the main issues argued in True the Vote’s lawsuit was that the IRS had improperly delayed granting their 501(c)(3) application, which is the section of the IRS code conferring tax-exempt status on qualifying non-profit organizations. True the Vote filed their application during the summer of 2010, and pursuant to the IRS’s own rules, the agency had a duty to send a response within 270 days. That deadline was not met. Instead, years went by, while True the Vote, founder Catherine Engelbrecht, and King Street Patriots, another tea party group with which Engelbrecht was affiliated, all found themselves subject to invasive requests for records and information from not only the IRS, but also the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
In May 2013, news broke that the IRS admitted targeting conservative organizations applying for 501(c)(3) status with “special scrutiny,” and True the Vote filed their lawsuit later that month. They were getting questions about a lot of things other than tax returns. Describing the “strange questions” asked by IRS agents that seemed far beyond the scope of what they had expected, including number of Facebook “likes,” membership lists, and content of internal organizational communications.
The IRS finally granted True the Vote’s 501(c)(3) status in September 2013. Almost a year later, in July 2014, while waiting for the judge to issue a ruling on the parties’ initial briefs, more news broke: that emails from Lois Lerner’s computer had been “lost” in a computer crash. True the Vote filed a new motion seeking to begin discovery, arguing that the news meant that there was a real risk that relevant evidence could be lost or destroyed. The Judge Reggie B. Walton denied that motion and then took no further substantive action until his ruling in October 2014, which dismissed the entire case.
Judge Walton’s opinion stated that because the IRS had finally granted True the Vote their 501(c)(3) status, the case “no longer warranted the Court’s attention and further use of its resources,” and deemed True the Vote’s lawsuit to now be moot. However, True the Vote had argued specific costs that the IRS’ delay had caused them, including fees for attorneys and CPAs, as well as fundraising losses. A number of other non-profit organizations and other donors had either pledged or donated money to True the Vote with the understanding that the group would have official 501(c)(3) status soon. Some of these groups even had requirements in their organizational documents that they could only give money to other approved 501(c)(3) organizations. The IRS’ years-long delay acted as a “functional denial of our application” and True the Vote was forced to return some donations, and other pledges were revoked. The total costs to True the Vote caused by the IRS’ delay to be nearly $90,000.
In short, Judge Reggie B. Walton acknowledges in his opinion that the IRS did in fact target True the Vote for their perceived political beliefs, but then he holds that neither the agency nor the individual IRS agents or officers are responsible for this unconstitutional conduct.
The notion that the IRS can target Americans for years because of their political beliefs is reprehensible. Every patriotic American should be concerned when courts condone abusive and arbitrary administration in any government agency. This would include the court run by this treasonous judge named, Reggie Barnett Walton.
