Democracy Spring, Americans Are Making Noise

Democracy Spring photo

There’s a newly unified group of fed up Americans being heard and seen in Washington, D. C.

Democracy Spring is a protest at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D. C. that started earlier this month, and is now ongoing. The reason for this movement is mass awakening to our country’s voter fraud and the massive amount of money involved in the ability to even run for office. It’s a statement to Congress regarding the Citizens United U.S. Supreme Court ruling and states’ voter ID laws.

Voter fraud is nothing new, mind you, the voting process has probably always been a farce, or worse actually. And, I’ve often wondered why we are all okay with watching and even helping to raise massive amounts of money so that “our” politician can run for office. What part of that makes sense in the big picture of humanity? Doesn’t it look more like a racket than a step in a governing process?

Now. Somebody help me out here. The first Amendment to the Constitution of the United States says that we have the right to peaceably assemble, as well as a few other important things about our freedoms.

Can somebody please tell me why peaceably assembled people, including seniors in wheelchairs, have been and are being arrested? These protestors are protesting, knowing they’re going to be arrested, because that’s just how it’s done. I understand that the United States Capitol building doesn’t actually belong to the people, it is a public building. Unlike your teens who invite their favorite group of friends to hang out in your living room at any given time (if that’s how it goes at your house), protestors cannot get away with simply inviting themselves into the Capitol building to shout in unity.

Let’s look at an article written for ProPublica.org magazine in 2011 regarding why peaceably protesting folks get arrested:

“The First Amendment is not absolute. Government can make reasonable stipulations about the time, place and manner a peaceable protest can take place, as long as those restrictions are applied in a content-neutral way.

But what constitutes a reasonable time, place and manner restriction? “It depends on the context and circumstances,” said Geoffrey Stone, a professor specializing in constitutional law at the University of Chicago. “Things like noise, blockage of ordinary uses of the place, blockage of traffic and destruction of property allow the government to regulate speakers.”

Stone gave a few examples of impeding ordinary usage: disturbing patients at a hospital, preventing students from going to school, or, more relevant for the Occupy movement, disrupting the flow of traffic for a long period of time.”

And so, I would submit that it must be the excessive noise that constitutes a legitimate reason to arrest peaceably protesting Americans from the Capitol building in Washington D.C.

The Occupy Movement built momentum and sprang up in many other cities in America, and also traveled around the world to other countries, who used the movement to raise their voices in unison regarding their own government issues. Will the Democracy Spring protests carry on past April 18th of 2016 and spread similar to the way the Occupy Movement did? Will more Americans get involved and force change to the insanity of millions and billions of dollars donated to running politicians by “motivated” donors who have agendas attached to said donations? Stay tuned…

BREAKING: REPORTER ARRESTED IN COURTROOM!

JURY TRIAL BEGINS FOR THOMAS DAVID HOUSE OF DEEGAN

I attended the jury selection earlier this afternoon for Thomas David House of Deegan’s trial in Parkersburg, WV.  However there was some drama during a morning motions hearing as Carl Swensson, a reporter from Atlanta, GA was arrested for having a camera pen in his shirt pocket!  According to Heather Swensson, two individuals (suspected feds) wearing street clothing with guns were sitting directly behind her and Carl, when some communication began stirring among officers.  The camera pen was confiscated, passed around for examination, until the bailiff alerted purported Wood County Circuit Court Judge Jeff Reed.

Judge Reed ordered, “Place that man in custody.”

Heather raised the question outside of the Wood County Judicial Building as to how these officers knew Carl’s pen was a camera as he did not try to hide it during security scan earlier before entering the courtroom.   Somebody obviously said something.

So, Carl was arrested while keeping tongue in cheek, and taken to the magistrate building for processing.  Heather later told how as she was sitting in her parked vehicle in front of the Judicial Building, three witnesses of the state (one of whom being a state trooper) smirked at her while passing by.

Carl was arrested for being in contempt of court, as Judge Reed has been very adamant in previous hearings that absolutely no recording devices may be brought into the court room.  The only exception has been for local news station, WTAP.  This is a direct violation of the 1st article of the Bill of Rights, which acknowledges the freedom of the press.

Judge Reed later called for Carl to be brought back into the courtroom by saying, “Go get that man.”

So, Carl was escorted back into the courtroom, where Judge Reed lectured him, and released him from custody.  Carl was also not allowed to come back into the courtroom, so he had to leave.

The question of whether the trial should be moved to another court shall be decided by the jury.  As explained in the video above, Thomas has previously pointed out the constitutional fact (article 3, section 2) that any time a state is a party in a case against a citizen thereof, the trial shall be heard in the Supreme Court.  Judge Reed has previously explained this off by claiming it’s a “tradition” of the courts to hear such cases.

So basically, the fact that it’s a “tradition” of the courts to violate the Constitution, this somehow makes everything ok!

Opening statements will be given tomorrow morning during jury trial which is expected to last through Friday.  Thomas is being accused by pro se, WEST VIRGINIA INC. of threats of terrorism.

Thomas, along with Phil Hudok, and Gene Stalnaker is at the forefront of an effort to change the current corporate form of government to a constitutional form in West Virginia. Recently Phil was part of an in depth discussion about the rule of law on Battle of New Orleans Radio.  Please check it out in video below.

THOMAS DAVID HOUSE OF DEEGAN STARING AT NEW WORLD ORDER COURT

CALEB HITT

THEDAILYRESISTANCE.COM

After much anticipation among supporters of Thomas David House of Deegan, his revocation hearing for home confinement arrived Friday, Febuary 19 in Wood County Circuit Court at Parkersburg, WV.   Close to 20 of us gathered near the Judicial building downtown.  Those among us included 2016 Governor candidate Phil Hudok, Pastor Butch Paugh, Darlene Deegan (Thomas’s mother), and others from West Virginia, Ohio, California, and Georgia.

During this time, Phil Hudok was handing out copies of an article he wrote entitled, “On Government Corporations: The Matter Of West Virginia And The Condition Of The People.”  Phil’s article was originally published in the Nov/Dec 2015 edition of The American’s Bulletin, and later with his permission, republished right here on The Daily Resistance.  This article is an eye opening expose of the fraudulent conspiracy of  corporations posing as government.  Carl Swenson, who would also moderate post hearing reactions, was handing out small sized American Peace Flags.

Per Phil’s request, everyone brought a copy of the Holy Bible.  After going through security, Pastor Butch instructed each of us to hold our Bible unashamedly high while entering the court room.  So we all did.  This was to signify our Heavenly Father’s highest authority.  Higher than even the circuit court.  Neither Administrator (Judge) Jeff Reed nor anyone else objected to this.

During the hearing, Administrator (Judge?) Reed began dismissing a series of motions.  Leonard, during his post hearing reaction commented, “…what I saw there was a lack of due process notification.  Thomas brought that up when he started to rule on these demands.  Their not motions.  There demands, let’s get that square.  But the judge referred to them as motions.  I think that is unlawful, number one.  Due process notification, what I’m referring to would be the fact they did not notify the alleged defendant in this case that they were going to be ruling on motions.  This was a revocation hearing, not to rule on motions.”

Indeed, as  Carl pointed out, “people came in support and were horrified to see just how lawless this administrator (Jeffrey B. Reed) for the Wood County, West Virginia Circuit Court was acting. This was put on the docket as a bond revocation hearing but Reed (“I rule as I see fit”) decided to make it a motions hearing. Neither Thomas nor the Prosecutor had any idea this was going to happen so neither were prepared.”

The 6 demands referred to made by Thomas centered around the court’s purported jurisdiction/authority.  Judge Reed dismissed/denied all of them.  Of course, Administrator (Judge?) Reed is not going to allow a platform for the truth to come forth regarding illegitimacy of the court.

As far as the charge against Thomas for threat of terrorism, the State’s evidence is tied to conference calls Thomas was involved with.  Thomas questioned his ability to review this evidence for himself because the military prison he is locked up in does not allow him to listen to discs containing the audio from these conference calls.  So now, an effort will be made by Thomas’s court imposed standby council, John Oshoway, to obtain transcripts of the conference calls.

Administrator (Judge?) Reed continues to refer to Thomas as the pro se, THOMAS DEEGAN, and also questioned Thomas on how he wishes to be represented. Thomas insisted he does not want anyone else to speak for him or represent him in any capacity.  Rather as Thomas put it, “I am presenting myself as the man that I am.” so as not to slide into the pro se corporate fiction role the court attempts time and time again to place Thomas into.  Thomas is a flesh and blood living soul.  The pro se fiction of THOMAS DEEGAN (notice all capitalized) is a corporation.  Thomas himself pointed out to Administrator (Judge?) Reed, the WV Supreme Court of Appeals accurately recognizes him as Thomas David House of Deegan.

To learn more about not only this corporate fiction of government and the court system, but also an overall briefing of Thomas’s ongoing battle, view this video of Phil Hudok’s interview with me on Battle of New Orleans Radio Show from a couple weeks ago:

Both Thomas’s and the State’s witnesses were absent from the hearing.  So Thomas did not object to the State’s motion to continue the revocation hearing as Thomas mentioned his desire to fully defend himself.  The revocation hearing has been continued for March 15, the same day as his trial for threats of terrorism.

All of the post hearing reactions given afterwards were very noteworthy as can be viewed in the video at the top of this page.  I picked out some for mentioning here though.  Phil Hudok mentioned, “Well, we saw a corporate system at work.  We saw a system that makes up there own rules.  And you have to submit to their rules.  And they are fiction.  They are not real.  We have a hijacked constitution, so we don’t have the rule of law.  We don’t have real men acting in both capacities as government, and in this case a defendant.  We have a real defendant and we have a fiction government.  And they want you to surrender to them.  They see Thomas as dangerous.  He’s dangerous because he’s exposed the system.  They feel they can’t possibly let him free, that they have to make an example out of him, and show this is what happens to anyone who goes up against the corporate borg.  This big club that George Carlin said that your not in.  And that’s what it is.  They have the money. They have the power.  They make the rules, and they don’t like anyone that challenges that.”

Joseph Cannon (of ladm.us) spoke next, “….He (Thomas) picked up on, ‘yea I am not a fictional character. I am a man created in God’s image’,…and it seemed to me the judge just kind of ignored that.  He didn’t really accept that idea.  He wasn’t going to accept any argument that Thomas did present.  He made a lot of good arguments…. Will the court accept it? No.  He is classified still as an entity and he is a danger to society.  Not to our society, but to the court system’s society.  And he’s a danger to the Illuminati, because he has exposed them for the game that they have played.  Thomas is not going to really play by their rules.  They want him to as I picked up on today… They got rules.  But as soon as he bows down to their rules, then he steps into their ballpark….”

Pastor Butch gave his take, “Well, I think the judge answered everything when he said, ‘I’ll rule as I please.’… So he therefore pronounced himself judge and jury.  The calling back of the constitution is not going to work because it’s not recognized.  So now we go back to the scriptures and stand for that or nothing.  The judge is going to ignore Thomas’s pleas as he did today motion to motion, thrown out, dismissed for whatever reason.  And they make up the reason as they go.  You know, if I played a ballgame, but if I made up the rules as I played, I’d win the ballgame everytime.  Well, that’s what they’re doing, and we needn’t kid our self when we’re up against a force here that is foreign to us as true Americans, and men and women of God.  But, it’s a power that now rules this earth, and now rules this country.

Carl brought up a good point when he said, “There was an instance there when he (Judge Reed) said to everybody, ‘You can’t record.’  And yet, WTAP was in there recording.  That shows a favoritism and contempt for anybody else other than his hand chosen minions.

Darlene Deegan was rather emotional during her reaction, “… And when I saw once again, that he Shanghaied my boy.  Not letting him get a word in edgewise, and doing whatever he so pleases because he’s made it perfectly clear over the past 6 years that, that is his court room and he makes the rules.  That was evident today.  And I was prepared to die today.  Because I knew with everything in my heart and soul, that as a mother, I’m tired.  I am mentally, physically, and spiritually drained.  And I knew if I didn’t leave that courtroom that they would shoot me dead in front of my boys and all of our friends because I truly could’ve done something that I could’ve regretted.  And I regret that I didn’t get to tell Tommy I loved him on the way out.  But I couldn’t go back into that court room, because I knew where my emotions were.  I knew where they were.  I just couldn’t stay.  But God will prevail in this.  I don’t know how He’s going to do it because He made promises to me and Tommy.  But I know Tommy’s going to get to come home as a free man.  And that’s what I’m waiting on.  He deserves it because God chose him for this, and He’s not going to leave him.”

Darlene then changed gears, “And I just want to say to all you people out there, you patriots that said you were Tommy’s friend.  All you people that he helped… I want you to know something.  My son is still sitting in jail.  Today’s day 150 for you… I really know who you are.  You see, if my son would have given up names, you’re names, he would be home right now.  So I want you to think about that…”

Carl in his closing statements said, “…But you know as I know, that what he’s doing, what he has done from the beginning, he has done in peace.  I have never, never heard him call for the violent overthrow of anybody.  What I’ve heard as you have heard is that these imposters, who are occupying offices that they were supposedly elected and appointed to, need to vacate those offices and let the people back into their House…”

View Carl’s closing statements in his video footage below.  (Note: my footage was cut off due to lack of storage space on my phone.)

US Military Now Has Authority to “Capture and Punish” Journalists Who they Deem “Belligerent”

Matt Agorist

Washington, D.C. — Newly adopted Department of Defense guidelines will allow military commanders to “punish journalists” and treat them as “unprivileged belligerents.”

The DoD’s 1,180 page Law of War Manual outlines provisions for military commanders to violate the rights of journalists who they disagree with in vaguely written legal speak.

In June, the Free Thought Project first reported on this ominous manual. However, it has been updated now, and its use delegated to all branches of the military.

According to the Associated Press:

The Law of War manual, updated to apply for the first time to all branches of the military, contains a vaguely worded provision that military commanders could interpret broadly, experts in military law and journalism say. Commanders could ask journalists to leave military bases or detain journalists for any number of perceived offenses.

“In general, journalists are civilians,” the 1,180 page manual says, but it adds that “journalists may be members of the armed forces, persons authorized to accompany the armed forces, or unprivileged belligerents.”

A person deemed “unprivileged belligerent” is not entitled to the rights afforded by the Geneva Convention so a commander could restrict from certain coverage areas or even hold indefinitely without charges any reporter considered an “unprivileged belligerent.”

The manual allows for the stripping of due process and reporters who are deemed “belligerent” could be carted off to Gitmo and never heard from again.

The manual states that they are not ruling out torturing journalists either. According to the manual:

“Reporting on military operations can be very similar to collecting intelligence or even spying. A journalist who acts as a spy may be subject to security measures and punished if captured.”

If a person is suspected of being an enemy combatant, then that person should be treated as an enemy combatant. Adding in this vaguely written language that specifically mentions ‘journalists’ can only be interpreted as a means to silence dissent.

The Mainstream Media is already heavily controlled by state interests. Antiwar protesters are portrayed in a negative light while the horrid atrocities carried out by the US government overseas are completely blacked out.

If Americans were shown the violent reality of US-led drone attacks on villages across the Middle East in which innocent women and children were slaughtered by remotely fired Hellfire missiles, you can rest assured the support for the war would have been waning long before now.

The fact is that anyone who does show the public the reality of war is already treated as an enemy combatant. If you doubt this claim, simply look at how fast Wikileaks was attacked after releasing the video Collateral Murder.  The video showed a team of two US AH-64 Apache helicopters in Al-Amin al-Thaniyah, New Baghdad gunning down an unarmed Reuters reporter and children.

Instead of launching an investigation into more instances of collateral murder, Wikileaks was declared an enemy of the state and the US began attempts to extradite Julian Assange.

“I’m troubled by the label ‘unprivileged belligerents,’ which seems particularly hostile,” said Kathleen Carroll, AP’s executive editor in regards to the Law of War Manual. “It sounds much too easy to slap that label on a journalist if you don’t like their work, a convenient tool for those who want to fight wars without any outside scrutiny.”

With the scrutiny from mainstream media all but non-existent, measures like this manual could prove to be a damning blow to anyone who attempts to shed light on the atrocities committed by the US.

As the AP reports, prior to the manual’s release, its own journalists have already been detained or thrown out of embed arrangements for reporting on issues that were not in lockstep with the official narrative.

“At a time when international leadership on human rights and press freedom is most needed, the Pentagon has produced a self-serving document that is unfortunately helping to lower the bar,” wrote Frank Smyth, senior adviser for journalist security at the Committee to Protect Journalists.

America is quickly becoming the very thing that it supposedly stands against. As politicians pay lip service to ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty,’ Americans are being locked in cages for possessing a plant, innocent children are blown to bits by a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and now the military says they can “punish” people for exposing it.

The next logical step for these tyrants is to begin rounding up and killing its dissenters. But that could never happen, not in the land of the free, right?
