Shooting, Trial, And Settlements Wrapped Up In A Year And A Half

Philando Castile was shot and killed by a St. Anthony, Minnesota police officer during a traffic stop in suburban St. Paul, Minn. on July 6, 2016. Less than a year later, a jury found Jeronimo Yanez, the St. Anthony police officer who fatally shot  Castile, not guilty of second-degree manslaughter.

Philando’s mother Valerie Castile and St. Anthony Village reached a settlement agreement for the wrongful death claim of $2,995,000. On June 26, 2017, a Hennepin County judge ordered Valerie Castile will receive the entire $3 million settlement in the death of her son which was less than 2 weeks after a jury acquitted the police officer.

Today, Diamond Reynolds, Castile’s girlfriend reached a $675K settlement with the city of St. Anthony. She will also receive $125,000 from the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust on behalf of the City of Roseville, because Reynolds alleged distress from being detained by their officers after the shooting.

“If we don’t approve this and we go ahead with litigation, it would just reopen the whole case again and bring heartache to everyone involved,” said Mayor Jerry Faust. “It is best to settle, and this will resolve all civil litigation stemming from the incident on July 6, 2016, and it opens the door to continued healing within our community.”

Cease and Desist Letter from Circuit Court Judge Diane Joan Larsen–why would she even care about this humble corruption blog?

Posted on August 1, 2017

So last week, I received a cease and desist letter from Judge Larsen of the Circuit Court.  I called right away to find out what it was about and asked for her email.

No response.

So then I drafted a letter in response.

She claims I published her “personal information” and that of her husband, which I don’t get, it’s all public information and SHE, not me, caused it all to be published with her own signatures and that of her husband.

It all runs smack dab up against the First Amendment to the US Constitution and the Illinois Free Speech clause.

She is making these douments public herself, by her own personal signature and her own personal actions.  She doesn’t want them on a blog.  I think it looks questionable.  Many of my readers think it all looks questionable.

She asks for a response in 72 hours and doesn’t give enough information, including the specific URL what is offending her and her husband.

Hmmm, more fish to look at.

She perfectly knows well the rule is now according to SCOI, you have to put your email on pleadings.  She has not sent me her email or any email at all.

But I have angels on my side and after a period of time and prayer, they got the entire situation to me, as they always do.

So, below is her letter, which I don’t get.  Why would she accuse me of divulging personal information when she well knows that the Cook County Recorder of Deeds puts property information on their website?  Seems strange.

It’s also relevant to her job and the right of the public to know who is taking salaries that are really taxpayer funds.

It’s nothing that should not be published every time the Sun Times recommends a judge or politician for that matter.  They recommend, they should publish property records in a discernible manner.

Here is her very strange letter, which I can’t figure out and which she has not responded to any inquiry.

The Rule of Law is Dead

Ultra Liberal Colorado Demonstrates How the Rule of Law Is Dead In America

A shoplifter runs from Walmart after shoplifting a couple of belts. He is chased by police into a strangers home in Greenwood Village, (where else but liberal) Colorado. Police destroy the home and offer only 5,000 dollars. Two years later the City of Greenwood Village keeps delaying the homeowners lawsuit in he alleges unfair compensation. Americans now live in a state of martial law where Constitutional protections such as 5th Amendment property rights are no longer respected. This case in liberal Colorado demonstrates how the rule of law in America is dead…..

It Is Our Unity They Fear Most

3 Characteristics of a True Political Awakening

By Sigmund Fraud

History is written by the winners, or so they say, but there is an agreed-upon version of our story that is taught to us in school and reinforced in everyday life by the media and government propagandists. Coasting through life haphazardly believing in this standardized version of reality is a form of consciousness; a contemporary way of relating to a world where the individual is consumed by the group, and truth becomes evermore out of reach.

The typical level of political awareness in our society is fairly basic, simplified and incomplete, but it serves as a functional trap for the mind and the imagination, pigeonholing individuals into a conformist. This psychological trap preys upon two basic human traits: conservatism and progressivism. And because these traits are biologically hardwired into the human psyche, they are exploited as a fissure to create disharmony and division amongst the public.

Many people only rise to a level of political consciousness which allows them to understand their predisposition to one or the other of these traits. Awareness often ends here, with extreme devotion to one side of the publicized political spectrum.

The truth is that human societies have always needed an even distribution of people with each of these ideological tendencies in order to achieve a balance between our need for external and internal control, protection and care. Political awakening involves rising above the prescribed psychology of division, into a position of appreciation of the qualities which unite us all.

This idea is enumerated in the following three characteristics of true political awakening.

Trust in the Statist System Collapses

To continue to trust and support a consistently abusive master is often referred to as Stockholm Syndrome. When a person experiences a true and deep political awakening, it is not longer possible to excuse any of the crushing affronts to human rights and human dignity that are intrinsic to state power.

State power is historically abusive. The manipulation of our money supply, endless wars, wasting of public resources, corruption, permitting the destruction of the natural world, terrorizing citizens with abusive police and punitive tax codes, and limiting prosperity with regulatory overkill are all standard operating procedure for the State.

In a Statist world, the awakening individual is tasked with the challenge of seeing through all of this in order to free the mind and see the greater possibilities for freedom and cooperation in the human story.

So-Called Leaders Are Seen as Puppets of Division

Watching the pendulum of public opinion and discourse swing violently back and forth between the merits of two political parties is comical once you’ve recognized just how predictable and destructive it is. We are goaded into engaging in the divisiveness, encouraged by the rhetoric of the political establishment.

It is our unity they fear most. Falling into the trap of politically dogmatic ideological fortifications is more dangerous to our society than just about anything else, and the truly politically awake fly above the argumentative mentality of those who are trapped in the two-party paradigm.

The Recognition that Politics is Heavily Influenced by Powerful Forces

If politics is the arena of government, and government is clearly influenced by corporate interests, intelligence agencies and deep state operators, and supranational organizations, then it makes no sense to pretend that we have power in the political system.  It makes no sense to pretend as though politicians are acting in the true interest of actual people. It makes no sense to pretend that we can save ourselves by calling on members of the state to represent us in their corrupt scene.

It is commonly known that politicians are beholden to special interests, and while they never talk openly about this influence, so many people carry on with the charade that politicians can wield  power over these organization, for the benefit of the plebs. They cannot, for these forces are beyond their control. The politically awakened understand that the plots against humanity extend way beyond the political scene.

Final Thoughts

Unity is the one thing that any political elite has always feared the most. Without smashing down the perceived barriers in contemporary political consciousness we can only expect our society to become more fractured, chaotic and dangerous. Trust in that which deceives and harms us is simply not possible for the truly politically awakened.

John Conyers Steps Down from House Judiciary Committee

Rep. John Conyers steps aside as top Democrat in House Judiciary Committee amid probe into sexual allegations

Joseph Weber

By Joseph Weber | Fox News

Michigan Rep. John Conyers on Sunday stepped aside as the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, but again denied recent allegations of sexual and inappropriate conduct.

“In light of the attention drawn by recent allegations made against me, I have notified the Democratic leader of my request to step aside as ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee during the investigation of these matters,” Conyers said in a statement.

The 88-year-old Conyers, starting last week, was hit with several allegations of misconduct while in Congress that are now being investigated by the House Ethics Committee.

The news website BuzzFeed reported Monday that Conyers’ office paid a woman more than $27,000 under a confidentiality agreement to settle a complaint in 2015 that she was fired from his Washington staff because she rejected his sexual advances.

The ethics committee announced the following day that it had begun an investigation into Conyers, after receiving allegations of sexual harassment and age discrimination involving staff members and about the congressman using “official resources for impermissible personal purposes.”

And later in the week, Melanie Sloan, a lawyer who worked with Conyers on the House Judiciary Committee, said she was called into the long-serving congressman’s office to discuss an issue and found him “walking around in his underwear.”

What’s really behind the storm of sexual harassment allegations inundating the entertainment, news and political worlds?

When mainstream media hypes up a topic, they’re diverting the public’s attention from other subjects by convincing society that this is the most pressing issue we are facing. They’re also conditioning society to accept institutional policies, regulations and control as a solution to the problem. Mainstream media is roughly 25 percent truths and 75 percent distorted information/lies and media has always been one of the most effective tools to control how the public thinks.

The #MeToo Social Media Craze Is Falling Apart as Truth About “Harassment” Comes Out

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the #MeToo hashtag exploded across social media. Women who had experienced sexual harassment and abuse came forward to make sure that everyone knew they had experienced suffering at the hands of men.

However, one writer for The Federalist thinks that the hashtag has gone too far.

In a sure-to-be-controversial piece titled “Ladies, You Haven’t Been Raped If Someone Catcalled At You,” Inez Feltscher said that the #MeToo social media movement hasn’t made a bit of difference for perverts like Weinstein while putting men without perverted designs on edge.

“It’s not a real solution to suggest, as the Left does, that society should just ‘teach men not to rape,’” Feltscher wrote.

“The Weinsteins of the world won’t care, and the men who do need a better script for how to express interest in women should not be punished for ever-more-minor infractions in a culture that thinks that all displays of masculinity, whether gentlemanly or inappropriate, are equally sexist.

“Meanwhile, the sleazeballs don’t give a rip about #MeToo, but good men are forced into questioning their own innocent interactions,” she said. – Continue Reading


Graafix!: Wallpapers Flag of FranceFrance’s “Me too” campaign may come with legislation

Marlène Schiappa, France’s gender equality minister (yes, that’s a thing), has proposed putting forward a bill in parliament that would fine people for engaging in street harassment — including aggressive catcalls.

“The point is that the whole of society has to redefine what it will accept and what it will not,” Schiappa told La Croix, a French Catholic newspaper. On French radio she explained that policing behavior on the street is “completely necessary because at the moment street harassment is not defined in the law. … We can’t currently make a complaint.”

Pressed on what behaviors would be considered harassment, she replied, “We know very well at what point we start feeling intimidated, unsafe, or harassed in the street.”

Children Now Warned Against Hugging Their Family During the Holiday Season

“Seriously? So now teaching our kids to show affection to FAMILY is basically child abuse?” one commenter wrote. “Unless something inappropriate is going on, this shouldn’t even be a topic to discuss… and if that is the case, that is an entirely different discussion.”


Notice the formulaic talking points being rolled out at every level of government.

Paul Ryan orders mandatory sexual harassment training for members, staff

Ryan called the hearing an “important step” in efforts to combat sexual harassment and added, “As we work with the Administration, Ethics, and Rules committees to implement mandatory training, we will continue our review to make sure the right policies and resources are in place to prevent and report harassment.”



Dayton: Schoen, Cornish Resignations ‘Important First Steps’

“These are very important first steps,” Dayton said of their resignations. Since those allegations first came to light, Dayton launched a review to overhaul the executive branch’s training and reporting procedures for sexual harassment.

It’s interesting to note that Rep. Tony Cornish was the chair of the House Public Safety Committee for the past three years and Dan Schoen was a democratic member of the Judiciary and Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee.

The Minnesota House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee oversees and funds all areas within public safety, including the court system, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and other corrections and justice programs.

The Judiciary and Public Safety Committee is a standing committee of the Minnesota State Senate. The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over all bills relating to the judiciary, human rights, family law, property law, remedies, crime prevention, law enforcement, criminal justice, and corrections

On November 21, 2017, Cornish announced that he would resign from office on December 1 due to sexual misconduct allegations levied against him by state Rep. Erin Maye Quade (D) and lobbyist Sarah Walker. In a statement announcing his resignation, he apologized for his behavior. To read more about the Cornish allegations and other instances of sexual misconduct at state capitols in 2017, click here.

At the time his resignation was announced, Schoen denied the allegations against him. Schoen’s resignation is effective December 15. To read more about the Schoen allegations and other instances of sexual misconduct at state capitols in 2017, click here.


“[T]his resolution will simply require that all Senators and staff receive sexual harassment training, as well as on other forms of harassment, at least once every 2 years.”
Every U.S. Senator Will Be Required to Undergo Sexual Harassment Training

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D.-Minn.)

( – Every member of the U.S. Senate and all staff members are required to undergo sexual harassment training in the next 60 days and at least once every two years after that under the terms of a resolution that the Senate approved on Thursday evening.

The resolution was sponsored by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D.-Minn.), the ranking member of the Senate Rules Committee, and co-sponsored by 19 others. Among the co-sponsors were Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.), Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R.-Iowa), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas).

“[T]his resolution will simply require that all Senators and staff receive sexual harassment training, as well as on other forms of harassment, at least once every 2 years—in addition to that, 60 days after it passes,” Klobuchar said on the Senate floor shortly before the resolution was approved.

“What happens if Senators do not receive this training?’ said Klobuchar.

“The American people will know.”

No Evidence That Training Prevents Harassment, Finds EEOC Task Force (Click to read)

The mainstream media is saying taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for congressional sexual harassment settlements. Taxpayers should however, have to pay for training with no evidence that this training has had any effect on preventing workplace harassment.


Official Portrait of President Donald Trump.jpgMainstream media is also injecting President Trump into these sexual harassment stories every chance they get. Since the Russian collusion coup d’etat isn’t working, it’s time to try sexual harassment claims in an attempt to force Trump from office.

“Some of the women who accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment or assault during the presidential campaign wonder when the president might finally pay a price for what he allegedly did to them.

I feel this issue has been ‘on hold’ all year, but not forgotten,” says Stoynoff in an email. “It’s been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker. But now the heat’s on and it’s going to boil and the lid is going to blast off.”

That blast off may come with help from a defamation lawsuit filed by Summer Zervos, a former Apprentice contestant who has alleged Trump began kissing her very aggressively and put his hand on her breast without her consent in 2007.

Zervos filed the suit after Trump repeatedly called his accusers liars. Through her attorney, Gloria Allred, she declined to be interviewed for this story.

Norm Eisen, former chief White House ethics lawyer for President Barack Obama, says the lawsuit is “critically important” because “the president’s alleged offenses against women, of sexual harassment, sexual assault, are very serious, much more serious than many of those that have resulted in people losing their jobs.

Trump, meanwhile, has called the ongoing legal case against him  “totally fake news. It’s just fake. It’s fake. It’s made-up stuff, and it’s disgraceful.”

In a statement to PEOPLE, his attorney Marc Kasowitz says the lawsuit is “based on allegations of events that never occurred.”

The hashtag #MeToo has gone viral sparking a revolution. Those that post it are announcing that they too are a victim of sexual assault. The general thrust behind the movement is to illustrate the pervasiveness of predatory perversion upon the female population. Males have also taken to using the tag to highlight their victim-hood. Prior to this trend sexual assault victims had a hard enough time. To seek justice victims had to publicly come forward and face their accusers in court as they recounted their traumatic experiences. The veracity of claims have been further scrutinized because of the significant number of false accusations and the magnitude of injustice that results when these false accusation lead to a conviction. It is my opinion that #MeToo will further discredit real victims. This effect will be hyper amplified by the velocity and volume of social media. Any Twitter/Instagram user with any agenda at no cost and no risk can now claim victim-hood. Sympathy, genuine or not, will be achieved through social media solidarity. The authentic victims of sexual violence will be marginalized drowned out by a sea of social sympathy. Unfortunately for them and the rest of society there is a more sinister second phase to this social engineering operation.

Sexual Assault is a serious societal issue with insidious long terms effects. Efforts should be made to reduce this scourge in society. The social media witch hunt is being presented as a way to take down powerful villains. Harvey Weinstein is currently being eviscerated by social media. Whether these sensationalized scandals are actually happening or they are completely scripted doesn’t really matter. The world believes that the King of Hollywood is being tarred and feathered by the unwashed masses. The elites can use their war chests to mount a defense should one ever really be required. But it won’t.

The true target of all this public finger pointing is the general public itself. Anyone’s reputation can now be destroyed by synchronizing bawdy tales of sexual assault. These stories can be created via computer algorithms and cast widely across numerous platforms. Likes can be manipulated and retweets can be accelerated bolstering public condemnation. ‘Victims’ backstories can be corroborated and their timelines coordinated through the backdating of a newly created social media presence.. Unlike the wealthy entertainers currently being confronted most folks can not afford to fight such allegations. Employers will fire the accused. Spouses will divorce them . Friends will turn away. This is the new world we are creating . Enemies of the powerful, challengers of the system and investigators of the truth will be destroyed with a key stroke. The justly motivation of saving women and empowering the voiceless is being used against those it seeks to protect. Proponents of #MeToo say a revolution is underway. They are mistakenly doing the bidding for those they oppose creating a much more dangerous reality for all woman (& all men). A world where everyone can be silenced. The desired empowerment will not occur. The opposite will happen. There is a term for that. It is enslavement.
