Judicial Showdown at the Minnesota Republican State Fair Booth Coral

See also

As this writer listened to the news a few days ago, he heard talk of some dust up at the Republican Party booth at the Minnesota State Fair. It became apparent to this writer that the Main Stream Media was trying to use this event to discredit a candidate for Minnesota Supreme Court Justice. The Main Stream Media would have rank and file Minnesotans believe that this particular Republican Party Endorsed candidate for the Minnesota Supreme Court was being banned from the Republican Booth for legitimate reasons. And the police were called. Later that night, this writer got an email from a supporter of this candidate, dejectedly asking, "Can this really be happening?" And now, this writer is going to tell you the rest of the story.

Rank and file Americans across this country have been talking about taking back the country and restoring the Constitution. At the same time, conservatives across the country have been talking about the need to "take back the Republican Party". For the most part it has been nice rhetoric, but it hasn't happened. We first saw this "war" begin when the National GOP leaders like Progressive RINO House Speaker John Boehner and Progressive RINO Senator Mitch McConnell disrespected the TEA Party last year. Senator McConnell went on further in his own campaign to say the GOP would "crush the TEA Party everywhere".

With the Progressive RINO Republican establishment pulling out all the stops in Mississippi to make sure a TEA Party upstart didn't win the primary, we know taking back the Republican Party in any state, let alone nationally, is going to be a hard, messy and ugly mission.

The irony is that everything TEA Party wants and stands for is already in GOP Platform. The GOP platform is the collaborative compilation of the rank and file membership. Ergo, the Progressive RINO Leadership of the National GOP really is at war with all rank and file Republicans, not just the subset known as the TEA Party.

Conservative Politics in Minnesota mirrors, to a large degree, the rift across the country between the rank and file Republican membership and the Republican Establishment. The Republican Establishment wants to follow a Progressive Agenda, while rank and file conservatives want the Republican Establishment to adhere to the Republican Platform.

Fellow Minnesotans, long before the rift between the Republican Establishment and rank and file conservatives appeared on the national stage last year, it was painfully obvious here in Minnesota. And this internal war raging in MNGOP has raged at least since 2005. Long before others raised the cry, "take back the party", the rank and file membership of MNGOP has been trying to retake the party from its Progressive RINO Establishment.

As most of you are aware, this writer and hundreds of Minnesotans have ask for and been denied our Right to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances pursuant Natural Law as reduced to writing in the First Amendment since 2005. Specifically, each year since 2005, a coalition of groups and individuals have asked the Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees for a hearing dedicated to receiving evidence and testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary on the record. Each year since 2005, both the Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees have refused WE THE PEOPLE our requested hearing.

Your Minnesota Government then chose to engage in unlawful and unconstitutional retaliation against the perceived leaders and primary agitators of this movement, this writer amongst them. So great and blistering was this unlawful and unconstitutional retaliation by the MN Judiciary, that it caused some people to move out of the State, even out of the country.

Still, we Patriots are a tenacious lot. While this writer pursued Judicial reform through my writing, others from the movement engaged in other strategies. One of those strategies was to be elected to leadership roles in the Minnesota Republican Party. There are 10 Judicial Districts in the Minnesota. This writer is happy to report the great majority are folks who demand reform of the Minnesota Judiciary. This appears to have taken the Progressive RINO leadership of the MNGOP by surprise.

In an apparent counter-offensive, earlier this year the MNGOP Progressive RINO leadership appointed an overall "chair" to "manage" the Minnesota GOP Judicial Chairs, and force their Progressive RINO agenda down their throats. This "Manager" basically tried to dictate what the official party line on the Judiciary, Judicial Candidates and on Merit Selection Retention Elections would be.

By Democratic Process, these rank and file Minnesota Republicans, who were elected to chair the vast majority of each of the Minnesota Republican Judicial Districts, revolted from the directives from on high. Among other things, they refused to support undermining the Constitutional Right of Minnesota Citizens to vote in full, fair and free elections of Minnesota Judges.

Once more on the offensive, these champions of rank and file Minnesotans put forward a candidate for the Minnesota Supreme Court. At the Minnesota State Convention, that put forward Michelle MacDonald who supports the Judicial Reform agenda and the Rule of Law. Michelle MacDonald won the Minnesota Republican Party nomination despite the best efforts of the Minnesota Republican Progressive RINO establishment. This writer has written about Michelle MacDonalds attempts to confront and overcome corruption on behalf of her clients before. And these articles were written without any knowledge by this writer that others would later put forward her name in nomination for Minnesota Supreme Court Justice:

Just as the Progressive RINO Republican Establishment did in Mississippi and in Kentucky(Mitch McConnell), the Progressive RINO Republican establishment of Minnesota has pulled out all the stops to prevent the election of candidate supported by the rank and file members of MNGOP. And, in this writer's opinion, this tactics resemble the tactics used against Rev. Dr. Martin Luther, King, Jr. in the FBI's COINTELPRO operation. This writer's regular readers are already aware our Government's FBI COINTELPRO operations which are used to demonized and discredit the voices of political dissent. This writer himself has been the victim of such a COINTELPRO operation.

Which brings us to the latest round of Government COINTELPRO style operations against a voice of political dissent. In this present case, Michelle MacDonald is a champion of rank and file Minnesotans being provided Justice Pursuant to the Rule of Law. (Michelle MacDonald's personal agenda included reducing the acrimony and expense of divorce in Minnesota.)

"The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it."

John Hay (1872)

Which brings us to the showdown at the Republican Party Booth at the Minnesota State Fair.

Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Candidate Michelle MacDonald was denied access to the Republican Party Both at the Minnesota State Fair. Clearly, this was a decision by the Minnesota Republican Progressive RINO Leadership to discredit a candidate put forward by the rank and file Republicans, despite opposition by the GOP Establishment.

This writer knows Michelle MacDonald has a traffic violation. Several knowledgeable parties acknowledge this matter should have already been dismissed. From this writer's personal understanding of the events, and the evidence he has seen, this matter should have already been dismissed. But as part of the Government COINTELPRO operation against Ms. Michelle MacDonald, it is being dragged out to discredit her to injure her reputation and diminish the number of votes she might receive.

"When judges are not required to follow the Rule of Law,our Courts become instruments of repression & retaliation against political dissent"

But the Jury trial has been delayed to a few weeks before the election. Michelle MacDonald is running against David Lillehaug for the Minnesota Supreme Court. This is the same David Lillehaug who's lawfirm charged the Minnesota Government/Taxpayers $77,000 for what was supposed to be Pro Bono work. This backroom deal was exposed by whistleblowers.

This writer asks the reader to recall that this writer has identified David Lillehaug as his personal arch nemesis for failing to charge a bank with fraud, witness tampering and death threats against witnesses. This writer further informs the reader that David Lillehaug is part of the Minnesota Progressive Democrat machine. David Lillehaug also supports taking away your constitutional right to vote for Minnesota Judges in full, fair and free elections - Just like the Progressive RINO leadership of MNGOP.

This writer asks each of you to consider the following:

  1. If the Minnesota Republican Party leadership believed in Democrat Process and was serving the best interests of rank and file Minnesotans, they would not have embarrassed and damage the election campaign of their own candidate in this manner.
  2. If any allegation against Michelle MacDonald was serious enough or meritorious enough, the Republican State Officials would have removed her endorsement.
  3. Republican Party Chair Keith Downey failure to appear at the booth in a timely manner to answer questions telegraphs lack of explanation for these actions.

This writer's readers know he trusts them to connect the dots. In this writer's humble opinion, there have been a series of various attempts at discrediting Michelle MacDonald to undermine the attempts of rank and file conservatives to take back the Republican Party. And, somehow Michelle MacDonald has survived them. To this writer's mind, MNGOP Establishment's handling of this matter speaks to the intent to damage their own endorsed candidate's election chances, with no regard for the party's reputation or brand name.

As Conservatives have seen in Mississippi and Kentucky, Progressive RINOs in the GOP leadership pull out all the dirty tricks to derail the candidates of the rank and file Republican Membership. And they have the money, power and influence to implement their dirty tricks.

The Progressive RINO leadership of MNGOP have tried to destroy the candidate put forward by the rank and file membership of MNGOP. Excluding Michelle MacDonald from the Republican State Fair Booth was just the latest round of dirty tricks. Minnesota Major Media dutifully played their role, reporting the hoopla with none of the substance.

Many talk about taking back the party,taking back our country, restoring the Constitution and enforcing the Rule of Law, but very few do. When someone does, like Michelle MacDonald, there is no road map; no example to follow. Taking back our Party and Country and restoring the Constitution and the Rule of Law is going to be difficult, awkward and ugly. Minnesota Main Stream Media attempted to paint this latest skirmish in battle for control of MNGOP in an unfavorable light for Michelle MacDonald. With this article, this writer believes he has redirected the unfavorable light to where it properly belongs, upon the Progressive RINO Leadership of MNGOP.

Still further, by the facts that appear in this article, this writer asserts that the deep flaws of David Lillehaug have been exposed for all to see. From these facts, this writer asserts that it is clear that David Lillehaug is unfit to be a Minnesota Supreme Court Justice. Any candidate for Minnesota Supreme Court Justice would be a better qualified candidate than David Lillehaug. This writer believes it would be a disservice to the whistleblowers who outed David Lillehaug's wrong-doings, to reward David Lillehaug with your vote. And, you would leave David Lillehaug in a position to exact revenge upon them.

At the same time, the willingness of Michelle MacDonald to champion the best interests of rank and file Minnesotans and expose her self to the vagaries of the election process, speak to her qualifications as a Minnesota Supreme Court Justice. Those qualifications also including commitment to the Rule of Law, Due Process and Justice for Rank and file Minnesotans. This writer asks each of you not to under-estimate the potential risk in running on behalf of WE THE PEOPLE against the favorites of the establishment of both major parties.

Fellow Minnesotans, this is what taking back our country and restoring the Constitution and Rule of Law looks like. The powers that control our government will not simply give up their corrupt ways. These tyrants will attack, discredit and attempt to destroy the champions of WE THE PEOPLE. A small group of patriots have withstood all the tests thrust upon them to bring you a candidate that is truly loyal to WE THE PEOPLE. Your simple task is to cast your vote. This writer's preference is clear.

But, pursuant to the Natural Law he espouses, this writer will simply ask you to determine truth for yourself, using your own observations and reasoning. And then vote accordingly.

Taking back our country and restoring our Constitution and Rule of Law may not be pretty, but this is what it looks like.

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.

If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine. I, Don Mashak, seek no leadership role. I, Don Mashak, seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar
