About The Below Social Media Posts

There is little doubt the rhetoric used in the below posts include an impassioned call to action.  Phrases such as "FIGHT WITH ME" are NOT A CALL to take up firearms or engage in violent protest.

We are a civilized society and TOGETHER we can effect meaningful and lasting reform through the peaceful means of demanding reform through a REFORM LAWSUIT filed into our highest court - The Supreme Court of the United States.  An EXTRAORDINARY WRIT IN NATURE OF MANDAMUS.

It is true that the POWER OF THE PEN is mightier than the sword, and past reforms in our country have always been best achieved through peaceful means.  Our founding fathers foresaw the eventuality of our present circumstance and wrote into our state constitutions that POWER IS INHERENT THE PEOPLE and AT ALL TIMES, we have an UNALIENABLE and INDEFEASIBLE RIGHT TO REFORM OUR GOVERNMENT IN SUCH MANNER AS WE THINK PROPER.  Certainly everyone can agree a REFORM LAWSUIT is a reasonable means to DEMAND REFORM.

The "Call to Arms" herein sought, is merely a call to spread the word..., join others to our cause, and as a people, united in common purpose, peacefully DEMAND REFORM of our corrupted and broken legal system.

Here is a little dose of common sense showing you how ridiculous our legal system is.

A common problem in our courts today is judicial bias.  Also known as  corrupt attorneys in black robes (aka judges) conspiring with attorneys  to deny due process, and extort under color of law.

A litigant  who is being subjected to a biased court can file a Motion To Disqualify  to have the judge removed from the case.    In Tennessee state courts  this is filed pursuant to Tenn. Sup. Ct. Rule 10B, and in federal courts  pursuant to 28 U.S.Code § 455.  Pursuant to Rule 10B, a represented  party cannot file a motion to disqualify themselves, and it has to be  filed by their attorney.  But attorneys will never allege bias against a  judge they have to stand before.

And of course, judges never recuse or disqualify when they are accused of bias.

Think!  The ridiculous disqualification process is trickery, deception, and a confidence scheme. 

A judge who is biased in a case is conspiring with the attorneys to  deny due process.  Due process requires an impartial judge.  Therefore,  denial of an impartial judge, and being subjected to a biased judge is a  denial of due process.  

Bias takes many forms; unlawful orders,  ignoring perjury, relying on obvious perjury as basis of their  decisions, using unsupported allegations as basis of their decisions,  wrongfully excluding evidence, denying the right to be heard, case  steering, and on and on and on…  These practices are unfortunately all  too common in our courts today.

The injury or oppression of  constitutionally protected rights, including oppression of a right of  due process is a federal crime with a penalty of incarceration and/or  fine, as defined in federal statute;

18 U.S. Code § 241
If  two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate  any person… in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege  secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, … They  shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years,  or both.

So when you ask a judge to disqualify based on bias, you  are either accusing them of a federal crime, or you are expressing  concern that there is an appearance of a federal crime in progress.

Here’s the scam – guess who hears the motion to disqualify?  Yep, you  guessed it… the judge who hears the motion is the very judge you are  accusing of a crime.  Wow!  So now you have a person accused of a crime,  acting as a jury of one, deciding their own innocence.  And again, when  bias is alleged, corrupt attorneys in black robes pretending to be  judges never disqualify.

We need to stop this scam.  We need a  state statute requiring that whenever a motion to disqualify is filed,  the judge must disqualify.  If the judge refuses to disqualify, the  motion to disqualify must be heard by a jury.  We cannot continue to  have criminal judges as a jury of one deciding their own guilt or  innocence.

In the meantime, until we can correct this problem  with proper legislation, if you are subjected to a corrupt and/or biased  judge, go ahead and file a motion to disqualify.  But along with that  motion, file a Jury Demand & Written Stipulation pursuant to Tenn.  R. Civ. P. Rule 38.01, 38.02, and 39.01.  

As state senator, when elected, I will continue to fight to preserve your rights and restore justice and equality for all.

The link  just below, is a link to my Petition of Remonstrance filed with both the  Tennessee House of Representatives and Senate.


The right to petition by address or remonstrance is a constitutional  right that the people have forgotten or have been deceived into  forgetting.  Tenn. Const. Art. I, Sect 23.

This Petition of  Remonstrance is the first "Petition" filed in the general assembly since the  year 1850, and the first "Petition of Remonstrance" ever filed in the  entire history of the State of Tennessee.

This legal document  demands; (1) reform of our broken and all too often corrupted judiciary,  (2) abolishment of unconstitutional agencies that protect corruption  like the Tennessee Bd of Judicial Conduct that dismisses 100% of  complaints filed by the public, (3) impeachment of several bad actor  judges who committed crimes and violated rights, (4) repealing of state  statutes that protect corruption, and (5) new reforms to safeguard the  blessings of liberty and justice for all including; statutory  requirement of advising litigants of their rights, live stream and  recorded court proceedings available to the public on demand, drug tests  for judges, and more.

Initially, the general assembly played  ignorant.  Director of Legislation Holt Whitt stated to me, "We are not  telling you no..., we don't know what to do."  And so, we the people  have been ignored since January.

Further defending our rights, I  filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus  in Davidson Cty, Chancery Court  asking the court to order the speakers and clerks of both houses to do  their jobs and hear and decide my remonstrance.

Their answer?   Further oppression of a constitutionally protected right (which is a  federal crime) by filing a Motion to Dismiss that included falsified and  counterfeit evidence.

I will continue to fight to restore our rights and restore the voice of the people.

As state senator, when elected, I will be even more effective.  I ask  you to stand with me.  Stand with me in defense of the constitution.   Stand with me in defense of justice.  Stand with me in defending  constitutionally protected rights.  Alone in the struggle, I expect to  prevail.  Together, we will prevail, and a great healing of our nation  will commence.

Here is another dose of common sense. How much new legislation do we possibly need?

The last sentence of each bill reads “…the public welfare requiring  it.” So considering the public acts of the last annual congressional  session, apparently the “public welfare” requires lots and lots of new  statutory law, each and every year… Or do we?

As a CPA, I like to  run the numbers, perform statistical analysis, and extrapolate trends  (draw conclusions based on the data). So, lets run the numbers…

During the last session of the Tennessee general assembly, there were  513 pieces of enacted legislation, i.e. bills that were passed.

House Rules of Order 44 (d)(1), No member may file more than fifteen  (15) bills during each annual session of a General Assembly, except that  a chair of a standing committee may file an additional five (5) bills  on subjects that pertain to the committee on which he or she chairs.

There are 99 representatives, and 99 X 15 = 1,485 bills. Since the  committee chairs are permitted another 5 and there are 14 committees,  that’s another 70 bills for a grand total of 1,555 bills each annual  session. There are another 29 subcommittees but I’m not sure if those  chairs are also permitted to file an extra 5 bills. If so, that would be  another 145 bills. Each bill must have a companion bill in the senate,  so an equal number are generated by the senate.

Since most  members of the house max out on bills they submit, that means our  general assembly considers about 1,500 bills each and every session.  Wow! And about 1/3 pass.

If you don’t believe me, the following  link is a link to the “COMPILATION OF ABSTRACTS AND SELECTED SUMMARIES  OF LEGISLATION PASSED BY THE 111TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY 2019” listing all  the statutes passed this year


As summarized on pages 12 to 60, there were 513 enactments of new  legislation. To be fair, 65 of the 513 enacted legislation are “Sunset  Laws” that extend various agencies and commissions like the standards  committee, department of human services, and the unconstitutional Board  of Judicial Conduct, as well as a few other "odds and ends".

I’m  pretty sure the public welfare does not require this much statutory law.  Most of what is enacted pertains to special interest groups, tweaking  the “law” to their favor.

Case in point, take a look at this  video of my testimony in house subcommittee.  https://youtu.be/11GKWshcvI0 The legislation I was  testifying against, was not only wholly unnecessary, it ignored the fact  that attorneys and judges completely ignore and violate their own  ethical rules. The bill I testified against in this video was not about  “public welfare”. This bill was about granting yet more discretion to  attorneys in black robes (aka judges), and allows them to bypass rules  requiring attorneys be held financially responsible for frivolous  lawsuits. Effectively, this bill enables extortion under color of law.  Color of law means the appearance of a legal act but actually unlawful.

From our Declaration of Independence; “He has combined with others to  subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and  unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of  ‘pretended Legislation’”

As state senator, when elected, I have  no interest in creating more legislation that benefits the few or that  harms the public. I will be working to repeal unconstitutional  legislation as well as to put in place new safeguards to secure the  blessings of liberty and justice for all.

   This ANNOUNCEMENT is a call to arms of sorts, a call to PERFORM your  CIVIC DUTY.  A plea to take a stand and fight with me.  FIGHT WITH ME!!!   

Fight with me, and I give my SOLEMN OATH to stand next to you  as a fierce warrior - I will not surrender this battle.  FIGHT WITH ME  and DEMAND PEACEFUL REFORM of our broken legal system!!!

   Recently  a viewer posted a simple comment during a live stream show I was on -  "Abraham Lincoln".  No other words or explanation..., just the name of  our Sixteenth President.  I was reminded of the most profound words ever  spoken by one of leaders.  

The Gettysburg Address conclusion:

   But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate --  we can not hallow -- this ground.  The brave men, living and dead, who  struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or  detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here,  but it can never forget what they did here. IT IS FOR US THE LIVING,  rather, TO BE DEDICATED HERE TO THE UNFINISHED WORK which they who  fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. IT IS RATHER FOR US TO BE  HERE DEDICATED TO THE GREAT TASK REMAINING BEFORE US -- THAT FROM THESE  HONORED DEAD WE TAKE INCREASED DEVOTION TO THAT CAUSE FOR WHICH THEY  GAVE THE LAST FULL MEASURE OF DEVOTION -- THAT WE HERE HIGHLY RESOLVE  THAT THESE DEAD SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN -- THAT THIS NATION, UNDER  GOD, SHALL HAVE A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM -- AND THAT GOVERNMENT OF THE  PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, SHALL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH.

   These words by our Sixteenth President perfectly express why I am in  this fight.  That those men (and all patriots - men and women) did not  die or sacrifice in vain.  That this Nation shall have a NEW BIRTH OF  FREEDOM.  For if we fail in this fight before us today, we will have  failed them, and surely they will have died or sacrificed in vain.  Not  only will we have failed them - WE THE PEOPLE, will have failed  ourselves.  I WILL NOT ACCEPT THAT OUTCOME.  I WILL NOT!!!  FIGHT WITH  ME!!!

   In the words of Lincoln, "... THAT FROM THESE HONORED DEAD  WE TAKE INCREASED DEVOTION...  This is what I ask of you today - your  INCREASED DEVOTION.  

   To come here into this group and state "I'm  In" and to do nothing more is not good enough.  Each person must take  INCREASED DEVOTION to further this cause.  Several persons here involved  in this group have heard my call and have worked hard to join others to  our cause.  Many have not as evidenced on the attached listing of  membership.  In the group admin section, FB tells me that less than 1/2  the membership are "active members".  "Active Members" are those who  "like" posts or those who comment on posts.  This means that half of our  members probably have not come into the group to see what we are about -  WHICH IS NOTHING LESS THAN PRESENTING OUR HIGHEST COURT WITH THE MOST  IMPORTANT CASE EVER HEARD.

   The left table of the attached, shows  the count of members invited by each person.  The right table  alphabetically lists each member and who they invited.  Cross reference  the people you invited as listed on right table and see if the persons  you invited has invited others.  As an example, and not to single anyone  out, and only because it is the first name on the list, xxx  invited two people to the group.  Those two people have not invited  anyone else because their names are not listed on the left table.  If  you have invites like that - REACH OUT TO THEM.  Message them and ask  them if they know they were invited.  Ask them if they visited the  group.  Ask them to do their part and further our cause.

Set  aside 15 minutes each day and use that time to reach out to the people  you invited and ask them if they are excited about this project.  Use  that time to reach out to new people and invite them.  Use that time to  go out to other groups and tell them about this project.


   I sincerely recognize that many here in this group have suffered  greatly.  I recognize this suffering affects our ability to organize our  thoughts, and our ability to perform normal daily tasks.  I know this  pain too, but surely not as intimately as many of you here assembled.  I  know many of you are wounded warriors who have already fought long and  hard in a seemingly futile battle.  If you are one of our wounded  warriors who has long been in this fight, I humbly ask you to once again  stand up and fight with me.  I swear a solemn oath to stand by you as a  fierce warrior. 


   Next  month, I am going to set up a new registered domain and website.  We  will start moving names of people in this group to that site and  gathering email addresses.  Under that new domain name/address, I will  ask you to email me your FB name and email address.  In this way, we can  keep track of who in this group is actively participating and providing  their email contact info.  I will ask for volunteers to help me manage  the data and contact those not providing data.

   I am also going to  set up a constant contact account from which I will send out mass  emails to the members of this group since many do not receive group  notifications.

Once we have enough people, and we are ready to  file in SCOTUS, which is about 300,000 active members, I will reach out  to EVERYONE via email and ANNOUNCEMENT here, and send you an affidavit  affirming you are a real person, a co-petitioner, your full legal name,  home address, and phone number.  These affidavits will have to be  notarized and an image sent to me so I can file with SCOTUS.  I'm still  working on details regarding this with the Clerk's Office so this may  change.  I hope to find out more this week. 


   God Bless you if you took the time to read this far.  If you did, leave  a comment "I'm standing next to you" so I'll know who is committed.

   With all my heart - THANK YOU!!!

   Since at least the 1960's our courts have  steadfastly become more and more corrupt, and if history predicts the  future, our courts will become even more corrupt (if that is even  imaginable).  The time is now to UNITE in COMMON PURPOSE.

   In this  group I need not list out the travesties, you well know the crimes of  corrupt attorneys in black robes colluding with attorneys, CPS, and  various other state bad actors.

   We all can agree THIS MUST STOP!!!

   This project here - WE THE PEOPLE v THE FIFTY UNITED STATES is not my  idea.  The idea for this project is attributed to the brilliance of our  FOUNDING FATHERS who established this REPUBLIC and our form of  government that is: OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE and FOR THE PEOPLE.  It  is to them, to whom credit for this project is properly attributed.

   I have tagged everyone who was named as a "leader" in this movement on  this post.  I respectfully ask that we unite in common purpose under  this banner "WE THE PEOPLE" and DEMAND REFORM of our broken and corrupt  legal system.  I ask that you use your influence to reach out to  EVERYONE and invite them to stand side by side with us.

   This  project serves the purpose of improving..., if not solving, the problems  of whatever cause you support.  If you do not understand this project,  please call me and allow me to explain how this project will be  successful and will dramatically fix many of the problems you fight to  fix.             My cell phone number is 615-351-2649.  That goes for anyone, if  you do not understand what this project is about, if you don't  understand that we will be SUCCESSFUL no matter what, call me.

   In  an EFFORT TO UNITE, if you like, I will appoint you as a moderator on  this page for a week and you can make one post to present the effort you  are engaged in to this audience.  On our website, I also have a  marketing platform and I invite you prepare an email that I will email  out to everyone in our database.  I will also add a page to the website,  OTHER RESOURCES and include a link to your website, FB page with a  brief description of your cause.

   Is the reform movement being taken down another rabbit hole?

   Throughout history, the legal profession has often faced times like  these where the dissatisfaction with the judicial and legal system  reaches a boiling point.  "Their" answer through out history is to  pacify WE THE PEOPLE with legislation, study committees, etc., etc.

   DO NOT BE FOOLED.  These corrupt lawyers wearing robes (costumes) and  their BAR buddies have no interest in REFORM.  Their interest is to  pacify us so they can continue to conduct their corrupt proceedings.

   Think about it... In the late 1970s Congress enacted 42 USC, Section  1983 supposedly to protect us from lawyers and judges in collusion.  Did  that help?  Of course not.  The leaders of the reform movement of that  time were pacified into thinking they had effected great change.  Has  Section 1983 been enforced against lawyers and judges?  Of course not.


   Confidence men are not "crooks" in the ordinary sense of the word. They  are suave, slick and capable. Their depredations are very much on the  genteel side. Because of their high intelligence, their solid  organization, the widespread convenience of the law, and the fact that  the victim [sometimes] must admit criminal intentions if he wishes to  prosecute, society has been neither willing nor able to avenge itself  affectively.  Scamming: The Misunderstood Confidence Man, Yale Journal  of Law & the Humanities Vol. 27: Iss. 2, Art. 2)”

   WE THE  PEOPLE, here assembled will not be fooled, we will not be taken down  another rabbit hole.  Do you really think 50/50 shared parenting will  make a difference?  Section 1983 did not make a difference, why should  50/50 parenting make a difference?  How easy will it be for these  corrupt "legal professionals" to rely on false allegations of drug use,  abuse, mental unfitness, etc. and award custody to one parent and just  keep right on trucking with their vexatious litigation?

   This is  not to say 50/50 is a complete waste of time.  Likely some parents will  be saved - and even if only a few can be saved that is a win.  And of  course we need to take every win we can.

   But we cannot let  ourselves be pacified.  The real problem is no oversight and no  accountability of crooked lawyers and crooked lawyers in black robes.   That is what WE THE PEOPLE, here assembled, are about... ACCOUNTABILITY  and a return of POWER to WE THE PEOPLE.

   The EPA or some federal agency should fine the Supreme Court of the United States for fraud, waste and abuse.

   Sup Ct Rule 33.1 requires petitions be filed on 60lb cardstock paper.   Cardstock is what business cards are made from, three times as thick as  copy paper, three times as much paper, three times as many trees, three  times the environmental footprint... where are the tree huggers????  

   Then they require Writs printed double sided in book form measuring 6  1/8" X 9 1/4" which means you have to make two cuts which is why there  is all that waste (see below).  Shameful?  Do you think this stupid rule was put in  place just to make it hard to get docketed?  I do!  Can you say "DENIAL  OF ACCESS TO COURT"?  I started at 6AM this morning printing and  cutting... I just finished at 8:30PM.  Fourteen hours just to print and  cut?  I still have to bind and that will take another couple hours.

   No worries, we will jump through their stupid hoops.

   The below Writs, I'm filing this week in my own reform case against TN.  It is similar to what we will file TOGETHER.

   With this case I'm stacking the deck in our favor.  They are so  arrogant and confident in themselves, they are clueless to the "chess  game" I'm playing.  However they decide this case..., grant review,  don't grant review...  rule in my favor, decide against me... is win win  for us.  Can't elaborate on that just yet due to OPSEC.

   This  case I'm filing has three defendants and Sup Ct Rules require I provide  them 3 copies each.  Soooo, 40 copies for SCOTUS, 9 copies for  defendants, 1 copy regular copy paper so Clerk's Office can scan it.  It  was a labor of love.

   I bet opposing counsel cringes when they see  what I have written.  As Sui Juris, I can speak the truth where  attorneys cannot lest they offend their brethren.  I am not bound to the  rules of their fraternity.   I can speak truth so long as I do so in a  respectful manner and with the truth supported by evidence.

   This case was a good warm up for our case...  219 pages including appendixes.
