INVOCATION: Thank God we live in a country free of oppression?

This just past Saturday this author attended the Wright County MN BPU Convention in Buffalo Minnesota. (In a previous article, this author exhorted: Why you must attend your Caucus this year! aka walking the walk)

Among the items of business on the Agenda was an Invocation at about 9:30am.

As the author listened to the invocation, I heard words to this effect:

“Thank God we live in a country free of oppression.”

And this author found himself taking exception to this statement. It is not this author’s life experience that citizens of this country are free of oppression, suppression nor repression.

As the meeting continued, this author thought to himself, seeking just to go along to get along, perhaps the person giving the invocation has not been exposed to the oppression, suppression and repression that is America.

Perhaps the person who gave the invocation was merely thinking about the recent violence in Syria, Egypt, Libya and the long running oppression in North Korea. Or even China’s Tiananmen Square Tragic expression of Tyranny…

Trying to give the benefit of the doubt, the author postulated that perhaps the person who gave the invocation, was not familiar with the various kinds of oppression, suppression and repression.

But as hard as this author tried to let the statement go, something kept clawing at him to not let this misstatement stand unchallenged.

And so, in the early afternoon, this author privately asked the chair of the convention for 5 minutes as a point of personal privilege (Look it up in Robert’s Rules ) for 5 minutes to address the misstatement.

This request was summarily denied. The Chair stating that oppression was a matter of opinion. But this author appealed to the parliamentarian who ruled, “A point of personal privilege is always in order”

Before a pause in the proceedings occurred that this author might force the chair and floor to hear my point of personal privilege, the recalcitrant chair announced (to CYA) that the “person who wished to express a point of personal privilege could address the floor”

With that, this author stepped to the nearest mike and did address the floor. However, this author does not think he did the point justice. But given the circumstances, this author did the best he could extemporaneously.

And, therefore, this would like to take this opportunity to put my thoughts on the alleged “lack of oppression in America” to writing. So here goes.

Oppression, Suppression and Repression comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. Many think of oppression coming at the point of a gun. While that ultimately is true in all circumstances, most suppression in America is presented in such a way so as to not cause WE THE PEOPLE to think our government is bad or evil. At least not as bad or evil as WE THE PEOPLE think due to the propaganda, media bias and indoctrination regarding Oppression in Countries such as Russia (Stalin’s Purge), China (Tiananmen Square), Iraq (Hussein’s Rape Squads), and the current situation in Syria.

WE THE PEOPLE, the rank and file citizens of America like to believe the fairytales about Oppression that we were indoctrinated with in Public School, and which are later supplemented with by a compliant, duplicitous and corruption enabling major media.

This author remembers how happy, secure in his person and superior he felt in the aftermath of his indoctrination in the public schools. Superior in the knowledge that our Country’s Government was honest and trustworthy unlike all the other Government in the world, especially the Communists. Happy and Secure in my person that my government, unlike other government in the world, made decisions based on the best interests of its citizens… Ah… ignorance is most assuredly bliss.

In a peremptory attempt to ward of a public lynching, this author again states that our government, is still the best form of government in the world, despite its current issues. But WE THE PEOPLE would be remiss to not weld ourselves to the truth rather than the fiction of what our government is and isn’t.

Our current elected officials have just stopped obeying Natural Law, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and common sense. And with that peremptory attempt to reduce the possibility of this author’s spontaneous lynching out of the way, here goes:


The associated video speaks for itself. 4 students at Kent State were gunned down for exercising their Constitutional Rights to protest the War. (See Video in side panel of article if you are reading this on line or by following this link )


This bill calls for American citizens who commit “belligerent acts” to be imprisoned indefinitely without access to an attorney. Little more can destroy our freedom more than circumventing language in the Bill of Rights intended to force the Government to respect out NATURAL LAW RIGHTS to be secure in our persons. In a society where a lawyer named Bill Clinton asked, “What does “is” mean?”, is there any doubt the Government will bastardize belligerent to mean whatever they want it to mean?

Indefinite Detention Law Hall of Shame - List of Senators Who Voted Yes on the NDAA bill


The author is not sure of the current status of this bill, but is also represents a fundamental dismantling of what are supposed to be constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Essentially, whenever any citizen or group wants to talk about something a Federal/State Legislator or Legislative Committee does not want to hear about, they person or group is ignored and/or denied access.

To compensate, many such “shunned” citizens and groups hold sit ins and protest rallies. What this law essentially says is that in the future, such persons can be arrested for trespassing.

Trespass Bill Would Violate Peaceful Assembly Rights

“Sweet Land of Liberty, of thee I sing…”


In this unpublished, landmark decision the Minnesota District Court Ruled that Minnesota Lawyers do not have to treat their clients ethically. (Minnesota Lawyers’ Code of Professional Conduct not an implied covenant of a contract between a Minnesota Lawyers and their clients.)

How is this oppression, suppression or repression? If you fight the establishment (just get too uppity) our government does punish you. However, our government is somewhat constrained by our culture, constitution and bill of rights, so they have to be creative to smack you back in your place.

One of the ways they do this is by fixing Court Cases, but plausibly deniably, against the target of their smack down. Not just criminal court cases against you, but other civil litigation you might have involving others.

Now that your Minnesota Lawyers does not have to treat you ethically, they can deliberately throw your case without you even knowing what’s going on. You don’t know what’s going on because the Rule of Law is so deliberately and unnecessarily confusing that average citizens can’t recognize (nor do we want to believe) it is happening.

In the case of Mr. Paul Volkommer, the most infuriating thing is that he was acting as a public servant on behalf of the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE. Mr. Volkommer was a founder of the Baldwin Township MN volunteer fire department. He was elected to be on the Town Board. He found $80,000.00 of taxpayer money illegally spent. The rest of the town board told him to shut up. Minnesota Law requires Public Servants to report such things to the State Auditor. The State Auditor conquered with 90% of what Mr. Volkommer said. The County attorney refused to prosecute. The Town Board illegally fired Mr. Volkommer from his fire department position. They black listed among the businesses that patronize his business.

Mr Volkommer sued on behalf of the taxpayers of Baldwin Township and because of his illegal firing in retaliation for Whistleblowing.

Mr. Volkommer’s own attorney’s deliberately threw his case. The MN Courts ruled that MN Lawyer’s don’t have to treat their clients ethically.

A few years later, the only persons who were injured in this were Mr. Volkommer and his family. He owes more on his house in attorneys fees than it is worth. His business is destroyed. That is one way oppression works in America. (By the way, if you need in store displays, please help Mr. Volkommer out by patronizing what is left of his company, It is up to WE THE PEOPLE to support the Champions of Rank and File Americans, if or no other reason than we know the Ruling Class Tyrants won’t.



We all remember the story of George Washington “I can not tell a lie, I chopped down the cherry tree”


The intent was to indoctrinate each of us with a belief in absolute right and wrong and a belief that our politicians are honest. Much of our entire public school education (and religious training) is aimed at painting a perspective of reality where the vast majority of Americans believe they should be honest and that the vast majority of Americans practice a Morality standard of absolute right and wrong.

And then we are cast out of youth into adult with no caveat warning by the schools and churches that many other people do not practice a moral standard of Absolute Right and Wrong.

Many of us are taught this lesson at the school of hard knocks in purchasing our first car.

The Truth is that the moral standard practiced by politicians, judges and lawyers is “plausible deniability” That is, if you can’t prove they did not do something wrong, they will maintain that they did not do it. That is why politicians are so reticent to put things in writing. That is why judges don’t do press interviews. And that is why the Court rules say no one can bring a recorder into a Court room or in proximity to Court Staff without the judge’s permission. They always want to make their wrong doing’s plausibly denialable.

Law enforcement practice a moral standard of “You,my fellow officer, lie and I, your fellow officer, will swear to it.

Indoctrination of our youth in a false perspective of reality where they believe morality is absolute in a world where people in authority don’t practice the same more standard is among the most perverse forms of oppression that exist.

Yes, you there in the back violently waving your arm in absolute rejection of this assertion. You don’t believe this to be true. Perhaps you should follow this link in another one of my favorite Tweets.

U can't protect yourself, your perspective of reality&your family from #Government if U don't know about #EdwardBernays

What’s that, you don’t believe there are folks pretending to be just like you but are actually part of a covert conspiracy?

True revolutionaries dont flaunt their radicalism.They cut their hair,put on suits& infiltrate the system #SaulAlinksky

Still don’t think there are people who will pretend to help you but have alterior motives? Check out these to folks:

Meet 1960s Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven

Is there anything more oppressive than people you trust telling you something is good for you when actually it is bad for you?


Another false perspective WE THE PEOPLE are indoctrinated in public school, is the role of Law Enforcement, Government Attorneys and Government Agencies in our lives.

Lawyers, Judges, Politicians, Government Attorneys and Government Agencies don’t sue each other unless 1) too much evidence is publicly display 2) Public outrage demands it 3) for their own political maneuvering.

Essentially, Everyone in our Government subscribes to a quid pro quo philosophy of “You don’t rat out my scam to rip off rank, and file America and I wont rat out your scam to rip off rank and file America”

However, WE THE PEOPLE are indoctrinated to believe Law Enforcement and Government Attorneys exist to “Serve and Protect” WE THE PEOPLE.

And Similarly, WE THE PEOPLE are lulled into a false sense of security believing Certain Government Agencies are dedicated to protecting us. EEOC, Department of Justice, Federal and State offices of Attorney Generals, Department o f Health and Human services.

The Correct Perspective of Reality aka “the Truth” is that Law Enforcement and Government Attorneys’ primary role is to Serve and Protect the Government and the Current Corrupt Status Quo. Similarly, The Correct Perspective of Reality aka “the Truth” is that Government Agencies do not follow the law and their Founding charters, but rather the whims of influential politicians.

Some Examples of each of these TRUTHS follows:

Government Attorneys do not have to charge anyone they do not want to. They call this prosecutorial discretion. The problem is there is no transparency. Therefore WE THE PEOPLE never know if someone was not charged because the Government Attorney took a bribe, received some other consideration, received political pressure from elsewhere, legitimately felt the case was not winnable or simply did not want to use limited resources to pursue the case.

Government Attorneys are not about Law and order, or absolute right and wrong. Government Attorneys are about Political Consideration and Bribes.

Proof 1)Remember the scandal of the Rogue Metro Gang Strike Force. How many of those officers were arrested and prosecuted? Why did only $3 Million of taxpayer money get used to pay the damages to the victims? Why are those same Rogue Metro Gang Strike Force Folks being rehired as Court room Bailiffs in Hennepin County? Where are the Government Attorneys who are supposed to serve and protect WE THE PEOPLE?

Proof 2)Simple undeniable truth of the true Nature of Government Attorneys. Freedom of Information Act(FOIA). Several Years Ago. My Property Taxes kept going up so I asked Wright County MN for financial records that were supposed to be Public Record. This author was forced to submit a FOIA Request.

Wright County refused.

The MN State Attorney General said they had no authority to force Wright County to provide the information. The MN State Attorney General said no government attorneys enforce the civil rights of citizens, citizens have to hire their own attorneys to protect their civil rights. (Ponder the effect over time on Liberty if Citizens are required to hire their own attorneys to defend their civil rights against the trespasses of Deep Pocket States) The MN Attorney said they agreed Wright County should produce the information,

From there, this author contacted the State Auditor who also said they agreed Wright Country should produce the records, but that they did not have the authority to force Wright County to.

Finally the State Auditor directed this author to IPAD – Minnesota Information Policy Analysis Division… http:/ IPAD said they agreed with this authors position. IPAD said they would draft a legal brief to that effect but that the Legislature had not given them the authority nor did they have access to the resources to the Attorney General.

The Policy that both the wild overspending party and the allegedly fiscally responsible party put in place requires citizens to hire their own attorneys sue Minnesota Counties, Cities, Schools etc to provide the public with information that is supposed to be private record.

Obviously our State Legislators do not want us to have access to Government Financial Information. This author submits this is proof that even our Legislators do not act in the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE.

Proof 3)EEOC – The EEOC does not address, confront nor prosecute cases of blatant racism. In the South East Suburbs a builder has been virtually driven out of business for focusing on low income housing. Despite having evidence of elected officials using racial slurs in open and closed door meetings, the EEOC did nothing. Some of the elected officials even boasted of their relationships with judges to kill any litigation the builder might bring. This was not just one community, this was several communities in Minnesota. If you are interested, you can read more about it here:

Marlena’s Journal

Proof 4)Back to Fabian V Volkommer MN A10-1205. Is it not fundamental common sense that Lawyers should treat clients ethically? Do any this author’s fellow citizens have any feelings of surprise that not one Government agency has pounced on this obviously unethical ruling?

Yet neither the MN Board of Judicial Standards nor the MN Lawyers’ Professional Accountability has taken any action on behalf of WE THE PEOPLE (“A10” Means this Appeal was initiated in 2010)

Further, the Minnesota Legislature itself is charge with disciplining and overseeing the MN Judiciary pursuant to the Minnesota Constitution. Why has no expressions of outrage over A10-1205 from any members of the Minnesota Judiciary? Why no quick and certain actions by our Minnesota Legislature to immediately require Minnesota Lawyers to treat their clients ethically?

The Minnesota Courts are Systemically Corrupt and the Minnesota Attorney General, the FBI, the Department of Justice and the Minnesota State House and Senate judiciary Committees fail to do anything.

For 7 years hundreds of Minnesotans have tried to give evidence and testimony of corruption before the Minnesota House and Senate judiciary committees and have been refused.

And then based upon the allegation that no one has officially complained, Minnesota Judges run around saying there is no evidence of Judicial Corruption in Minnesota:

Minnesota Injustice

Not one single Government Agency, Government Attorney or Law Enforcement Agency has stepped forward to serve and protect WE THE PEOPLE…

And now you know the rest of the story…..

Summing it up)So there you were, stuck with the lofty, comforting perception of your Government that you were indoctrinated with in Grade School and this author wakes you up with just a couple of the many proofs of a truer perspective of reality.

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free Johan Von Goethe

You now have the option of going back to that sound slumber of the Government Indoctrination has afforded you or wake up and seize your liberty by political action, or, if need be, force. The choice is yours.






"From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to "neutralize" him as an effective civil rights leader. In the words of the man in charge of the FBI's "war" against Dr. King:

No holds were barred. We have used [similar] techniques against Soviet agents. [The same methods were] brought home against any organization against which we were targeted. We did not differentiate. This is a rough, tough business."

You see here the Government trying to neutralize a champion of the people in a variety of ways, perhaps the most ugly of which was looking for dirt on MLK and then making stuff up about MLK to demonize and discredit him amongst leaders in the government, the general public, and his own followers.

Similar things have happened in the March for Judicial Reform in Minnesota. While the following tactic has been seen by all of us in various elections, this particular act of oppression, suppression and repression comes in the form of a Minnesota election.

A Champion of the people was carrying a bill for Minnesota Judicial Reform. In the run up to his reelection, he was accused of Domestic assault. Now after the election he was acquitted, but of course, by then he had lost reelection. And the coverage of that acquittal was on page 47 in the middle of 3 pages of obituaries (hyperbole).

This author for 20 years has pursued the issue of Corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary.

Only in the last 7-10 years, with advent of internet, has this author been able to find other Citizens with the same goals of reform the Minnesota Judiciary.

And, having been identified as one of the leaders of this group, this author has also been demonized, discredited and blacklisted.



“The first Amendment of the Constitution affirms WE THE PEOPLE’s Right to petition the government for redress of grievances without threat of reprisal.

In fact the founding of America is in large part due to King George’s refusal to hear the grievances of the American Colonists.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

Declaration of Independence

For 7 years, the Citizens of Minnesota, have been denied their right to petition the government for redress of grievances. For 5 years, the Republicans blamed the Democrats who controlled the Minnesota State House and Senate Judiciary Committees. For the past two years, the Republicans have now been the tyrants refusing 100’s of Minnesotans their right to petition by not allowing them to give evidence and testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary.

And there this article might end.

At the Caucus I attended last Saturday, this did not mention the oppression he has suffered in retaliation for being seen as one of the Leaders of the Minnesota Judicial Reform Movement. In part, this author did not reveal this because of his old school definition of what it means to be a real man. Real Men are the support and comfort of others and seek no such support and comfort for themselves. And it was with the stoic value, that this author made no mention of his suffrage of the illegal oppression, suppression and repression that his been thrust upon him.

However, in light of the apparent lack of knowledge of the person who gave the invocation and the lack of recognition of the statement that we live in a country free from oppression from the floor of the convention, this author will briefly mention the unlawful oppression he, himself, has suffered.

My life has been destroyed. 20 years ago some bankers and the government made and allowed stand a government sanctioned death threat which has never been rescinded. That death threat was intended as witness tampering as this author had the smoking gun evidence as to the wrongful repossession of vehicles from 150-200 innocent Minnesota families. The smoking gun was the banks own computer records which were provided to this author before the acrimony began. If you want verification of this ask:

Then US Attorney David Lillehuag;

Former Chief of Staff to a deceased Senator Jeff Blodgett’

Norwest Bank President, Now Wells Fargo Bank Executive Richard Kovacevich

Former 1st National Bank of Anoka President William Bunker

Former 1st National Bank of Anoka VP Roger Okerman

Former 1st National Bank of Anoka VP Gary Schake

You are also welcome to do a FOIA Freedom of Information Act request of the FBI regarding this matter.

Presently this author is being punished for pursuing judicial reform in Minnesota. An act of political activism inspired by the original injustice of the death threats, and the threats to destroy my business and my life if I testified against the bankers.

Perhaps the most oppressive aspect that the government brings to the table is the threat of direct or indirect consequence to your family.

At the time, this author was not married. And this author determined that he would wait 5 or 10 years before having a family so that a wife and children would not suffer the consequences of the reprisal this author was enduring.

But the Bankers and the government never forget. Once you are on the black list, you are there for the rest of eternity.

And therefore, this author has never got married.

In essence, the reprisal the Bankers and the Government inflicted upon this author was unlawful extinguishing of his allegedly unalienable right to pursuit of happiness. Effectively these bankers and the governments reprisal was to remove from this author:

The happiness and fulfillment of marriage;

The joy of children;

The fulfillment of coaching a son in little league football;

The fulfillment of walking a daughter down the isle;

Pursuit of success in business;

Pursuit of wealth;

Enjoyment of good health as my health has deteriorated because of the stress of living 20+ years with an unrescinded Government Sanctioned death threat and the various reprisals and injustices that have been made good on..

So back to the religious and moral aspects of the invocation:

It is said that God thrusts upon any individual no more adversity than they can handle.

It is said that God has a plan for each of us.

It is said that if you want to make God laugh, Tell him your plans for your own life.

And so this author suggests that God assigned this author this adversity because few others could endure it.

And further this author suggests God’s plan in having this author choose not marry and have children was to take away the governments most wicked venue of retribution to political activisits; that being the wellbeing of their families.

It appears to this author that the plan and design of whatever God exists is that he devote his life to confronting and undoing the Systemic Judicial Corruption that has befallen WE THE PEOPLE.

And, finally, this author thinks of himself as no great person….

“There are no great men. Just great challenges which ordinary men,out of necessity, are forced by circumstance to meet.”

Admiral William Frederick Halsey Jr. (Bull)

This author is no better than any other American. This author has not chosen this path of his own free will, it has been forced upon him.

With all of his unalienable rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness having been extinguished, this author chooses this path so that no other citizen of our country shall have to endure the same fate.

However, this author will exhort his fellow rank and file Americans to action by sharing 2 of his favorite twitter tweets:

If U R not feeling oppression & blow back of US Government,U R Not asking right questions nor pushing back against its tyranny #WETHEPEOPLE

If U R not demanding answers 2toughquestions nor pushing back against tyranny oppressing us,dont bother2tellme how much Ulove your children

This author believes he has given you pause to think about the statement:

“Thank God we live in a Country Free of Oppression”

This author eaves with you the following quote for those who cannot be motivated to turn off the TV, get off the couch and go defend WE THE PEOPLE’s Liberty and there their own children’s futures:

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Samuel Adams

Those were my thoughts.

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

Please join with me in mutually pledging to each other and our fellow citizens our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to our mutual endeavors of restoring liberty and economic opportunity to WE THE PEOPLE as our Founding Fathers envisioned and intended. [Last
