Minnesota’s Attorney General Lori Swanson joined 16 other State Attorney Generals around the country in the fight against Exxon Mobil.

Exxon Mobil was originally being investigated by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, stating that the company lied to both the public and its investors about the dangers of climate change.

One columnist at the New York Post summed up the investigation as a “witch-hunt.” Lowry, the author of the article states that fraud charges stem from the groups different point of views on climate change than that of Exxon Mobil. Lowry states that Green 20, or the historical coalition that AG Swanson is a part of “shouldn’t be entrusted with the power of a meter maid, let alone a top position in law enforcement.”

SHAME on Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson! Argues FC Judge David Knutson Immune from Violations of Statutes, Rules, Constitution and Appellate Decisions. According to Attorney General Swanson, “judges are God.”

From “Now Is The Time”:

“Judges can do anything they want – violate constitutions, ignore enacted laws, disregard court rules of procedure, refuse to follow appellate court precedent – with no consequence or penalty at all.They have unlimited power. They are not accountable to anyone. Not even if they hurt children, destroy families, or alienate children from their parents.”

This was vividly illustrated at a hearing in Minnesota’s federal district court on January 10, 2014 in Sandra Grazzini-Rucki v. Judge David Knutson, No. 13-cv-02477 (SRN/JSM). Lori Swanson, the Minnesota Attorney General, vigorously defended Judge Knutson in this case without charge, i.e., at public expense. Her deputy argued that Judge Knutson was immune from any consequence including a suit for damages regardless of what he did – even if he violated basic civil rights.

In other words, according to Attorney General Swanson, judges are God. They are infallible. Like kings, they can do no wrong. But, is this the way it should be? Does Minnesota’s constitution fail to address this? The answer to both questions is ‘no’.

Judges should be required to follow the Minnesota and U.S. constitutions, enacted laws, court rules of procedure, appellate precedent, and do what is right and just. They should not be allowed to ignore these standards. Legislative oversight, similar to executive oversight provided by the Legislative Auditor, will accomplish this. This should be because it will curb domestic violence, child abuse, repair our family court system, and because it is what is best for our society.

…Erika A. Sussman, a nationally recognized attorney, wrote, “While legislatures and the general public have come to recognize domestic violence (DV) as a private and public wrong, family courts throughout the nation continue to inflict enormous injustices upon battered women and their children.

In the name of ‘gender equity’ and ‘fatherhood rights’, custody courts often render decisions that ignore the substantial risks posed by battering parents, thereby jeopardizing the physical safety of survivors and their children.”

Thousands, probably tens of thousands, of children and protective parents are victims of a severely dysfunctional judicial system, including many guardians ad litem (GAL), custody evaluators, and other court “experts.” Thousands of children are badly hurt and damaged by domestic violence and abusive parents, mostly fathers.

These children become hurt and damaged adults. Many turn to alcohol and drugs. Some become violent resulting in massacres and murders. Our society is being poisoned by our dysfunctional judiciary. Judge accountability is the obvious solution. As Niccolo Machiavelli wrote, and as history has shown many, many times, power corrupts, especially unlimited power.”

UNELECTED BUREAUCRATS

The EU Is About Control, Not Free Trade

Letter misleads on Emmer endorsement

JOHN KERN, SAUK RAPIDS12:37 p.m. CDT June 28, 2016

The June 22 letter “Emmer’s endorsement stands strong,” by Walter Hudson, is a misleading and inaccurate smear of U.S. House of Representatives candidate AJ Kern and her supporters.

Hudson also posted on Facebook, accusing Sen. John Pederson of lying in regard to a signed statement from Pederson validating our protest surrounding the 6th District endorsing convention.

The AJ Kern campaign has officially protested the GOP endorsement of Rep. Tom Emmer because:

1) Late-arriving unregistered delegates were seated improperly on the convention floor, replacing Kern supporters.

2) Concerns were raised to Senate District 14 and District 6 chairs during the convention; they were stonewalled.

3) Our campaign was physically precluded from oversight of counting ballots.

4) The requisite passage of a motion to endorse never happened.

Chairman Keith Downey’s only response was a directive “to All Party and BPOU Officers” …. “there is no option for BPOU and CD officers to hold their office while maintaining support for the Kearn [Kern] candidacy or providing her or her team access to party resources or appearances at party events.”

Not just procedural issues; after supporters were bumped, AJ was within 11 delegates of forestalling the endorsement.

Citing no examples, Hudson, who played a starring role in Emmer’s convention infomercial, claimed we denigrated Emmer and his supporters.

In reality, our campaign strictly avoided personal issues and challenged Emmer’s voting record on education, trade and refugee resettlement, topics on which AJ has written extensively.

Admittedly, party insiders were unhappy with our educating inexperienced precinct delegates (of which there were many) on how to beat slick (albeit within rules) electioneering tactics. These tactics traditionally help party insiders vote each other to district conventions year after year, minimizing participation by grass roots supporters.

Hudson’s baseless negative campaigning — albeit at arms’ length of the Emmer campaign — is an encouraging sign for AJ Kern.

Vote for AJ in the Aug. 9 primary.

Dismantling Authoritarian Control

Brexit, and Goals and Ops of the Deep State

EU_pressureBy Jon Rappoport

We have to start with Brexit, which scored a victory last night. Britain leaves the EU. Bang. Other European countries are ready to put the same referendum up for vote. And George Soros is making money from having invested in gold earlier in the month. Naturally. The vulture never sleeps.

Speaking of money making money, the “hysterical aftershocks” in trading markets, right after the Brexit victory was projected, are all synthetic and artificial manipulations, laid on to prove a point: see what happens when a country defects from the New Order? Meanwhile, the people who had real jobs yesterday still have them today. Life goes on. Britain will still be able to engage in trade with other countries, despite Obama’s warning that they’ll have to stand in the back of the line to make deals with the US. Nonsense. Blather. Obama is failing in his job as front man for Rockefeller Globalists. If he can’t get Senate ratification on the TPP and the TTIP deals now, he’ll be the CFR’s failure of the decade. Hillary, who came out against Brexit, is looking like a clown with egg on her face.

“Shock and Awe”

The Roots of Today’s Tyranny: Total Information Awareness

Freda-Digital-CreepsBy Derrick BrozeTo understand the roots of the oppression, erosion of liberties, and invasion of privacy that has become the new norm for Americans, we must go back to the days following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

Immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was promising Americans that he would exact revenge on those who dare attack the empire. Dubya’s program of “Shock and Awe” gave the American public an upfront look at what the U.S. military was prepared to do to the enemies of “freedom and democracy.” The bombing of Iraq was only the beginning of a larger conflict that the Bush Administration dubbed “The Global War on Terror.”

The War on Terror did not end in the physical battlefield, however. The U.S. government was determined to root out all possible terrorist activity and in the process roll back as many of America’s hard-earned liberties as possible. Only 45 days after the 9/11 attacks, the U.S. Congress passed the infamous USA PATRIOT Act, typically known as simply the Patriot Act. The full Orwellian title is the “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001.”

Obama Has Covertly Signed the US Over to the United Nations


agenda 2030

Agenda 2030 is often referred to as Agenda 21 on steroids. We talk and write about Agenda 2030 as if it were something that will someday come our way if we are not careful. Well, my fellow Americans, I have very bad news. To quote my friend and colleague, Steve Quayle, when he says “what is coming is no longer coming, it is already here”.

After reading the paragraphs below, you will be able to form no other conclusion than

Agenda 2030 Is Already Here

From Obama’s Whitehouse.gov “FACT SHEET: U.S. Global Development Policy and Agenda 2030″, we have a declaration on the part of the Obama administration to “to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (“2030 Agenda”).” 

From the above-mentioned White House document, dated September 27, 2015, we see that President Obama effectively signed over the sovereignty of the United States to the United Nations and its Agenda 2030 program when the “United States joined OGP Steering Committee members in signing a declaration on Open Government for the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

On paper, the United States became a de facto puppet state of the United Nations nearly nine months ago. In fact, Obama has stated that “The United States is exercising global leadership that will be pivotal in achieving the 2030 Agenda”, in the following areas”:

Global health and Global Health Security Agenda: What this means is that mandatory vaccinations will be required world-wide.

Meet the man who will one daybring us a vaccine for stupidity.

Meet the man who will one day bring us a vaccine for stupidity.

“That is why we have made a commitment to assist at least 30 countries to achieve the targets of the Global Health Security Agenda to build national, regional, and international capability to prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats…” This is United Nations speak for world-wide vaccinations and the United States is going to assist the United Nations in forcing their will upon “at least 30 countries”. Health care will be rationed and form the basis of worldwide depopulation through the death panel age-exclusion orientated health official that we presently see in Obamacare. And, of course, the Bill Gates will maintain his omnipresent influence.
