 Slumlord                                                                   

An owner of slum property, especially one that overcharges tenants and allows the property to deteriorate.

“Yo, my slum lord T to the J Smitty painted over the mold on my walls to fix it … At least he picked a nice color.”

It is not uncommon for slumlords to buy property with little or no down payment, and also to receive rent in cash to avoid disclosing it for tax purposes, providing lucrative short term income. (Thus, in the U.S., slumlords would normally not participate in government-subsidized programs such as Section 8, due to the requirements to report income and keep properties well-maintained.) A slumlord may also hope that his property will eventually be purchased by government for more than it is worth as a part of urban renewal. Wikipedia

MAXIMIZING PROFITS BY MINIMIZING SPENDING

Judge’s St. Cloud properties, including one with meth lab, are called a blight  ‘High levels of criminal activity’ cited at some of the rent-to-own houses

By John Reinan Star Tribune    November 26, 2016

As a district judge, Vicki Landwehr spends her days meting out justice. But as the co-owner of nearly 20 residential properties in the St. Cloud area, it’s Landwehr who’s on the receiving end of public scrutiny — and legal action.

Several of the properties she and her husband, Don, own have been identified by neighbors and St. Cloud city officials as blights on neighborhoods. Earlier this week, police raided one house and found a meth lab — the latest in a series of troubling incidents that have angered residents and prompted city officials to investigate.

City officials have met twice with residents to discuss the problems. The most recent meeting, held last week, drew about 100 attendees. The city is so concerned about the issue that it is now taking administrative action against the couple for renting the houses without a license.

Judicial board dismisses Landwehr complaint

“I’m obviously happy that the complaint was dismissed. It’s somewhat stressful to have a complaint filed against you,” Landwehr said Friday. “I obviously had indicated from the outset that I always made every effort to make the disclosures that I thought were required. … That’s important to me.”  (Interestingly, Landwehr was appointed to the Judicial Standards Board by Governor Pawlenty in 2008 and was a judge member through 2016. BOARD ON JUDICIAL STANDARDS).

2017 Stearns County Open Courthouse Event

The public is invited to celebrate Law Day at the Stearns County “Open Courthouse” event on April 28.

On Friday, April 28, the Stearns County Courthouse in St. Cloud will open its doors to the public as part of a Law Day “Open Courthouse” event. The event is being held to showcase the work of Minnesota’s courts, and educate the public about the work of judges, attorneys, law enforcement, and citizens in administering the state’s justice system. The free, open-to-the public event, will run from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Open Courthouse event will feature numerous activities, including:

  • A special welcome ceremony hosted by Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea and Seventh Judicial District Chief Judge John H. Scherer.
  • An opportunity to meet local district court judges and justice system partners.
  • Guided “behind-the-scenes” tours of the Stearns County courthouse, with presentations by judges and Stearns County justice partners.
  • An information fair with representatives from numerous law- and justice-related organizations.
  • Information on free and low-cost legal services available to the public.
  • Presentations and displays focusing on the history of Stearns County and the Stearns County Courthouse.

The Open Courthouse event is scheduled to coincide with Law Day, a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day underscores how law and the legal process have contributed to the freedoms that all Americans share. Law Day was first established in 1958 through a proclamation by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Congress passed a joint resolution designating May 1 as Law Day, U.S.A in 1961.

“The justice system truly belongs to the people, and serves to keep our communities safe, fairly resolve disputes, and preserve the rule of law,” said Chief Judge Scherer. “As our nation pauses to celebrate Law Day, we wanted to give the citizens of Stearns County an opportunity to learn more about their local justice system, meet the people that work in our courthouse, and find out about the legal services available to them in the community. We will even share many of the colorful and interesting stories that have shaped the history of our near century-old courthouse.”

The Law Day Open Courthouse event is being hosted by Minnesota’s Seventh Judicial District in partnership with Stearns County and local justice system partners.

Government By Blackmail

How did things get so out of control in this country?

Simple . . . It’s called government by blackmail and it’s gone on since the beginning of time.

Blackmail is used to control government officials, business executives, celebrities, activist leaders and other public figures. Of course, anyone is susceptible and high-level NSA whistleblowers say that blackmail is one of the main reasons that the NSA conducts mass surveillance of Americans and other people.

Sexual pedophilia blackmail is called Brownstoning and is used by elites to control Congress. urbandictionary.com

“We are ruled, though it may be difficult to imagine, by a small dynastic power structure, largely consisting of powerful banking families, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and others. They emerged in controlling the financial system, extended their influence over the political system, the educational system, and, through the major foundations, have become the dominant social powers of our world, creating think tanks and other institutions which shape and change the course of society and modern human history.”    Andrew Gavin Marshall

Brownstoning seems to be the main reason that governments fail to stop or even investigate pedophilia and human trafficking significantly. Pedophile rings Investigations on a global level have found and uncovered, multiple times, the involvement of some very prominent people — from lawmakers to politicians and more — in pedophilia and human child trafficking.

Lawyer Brags About Defending Teacher Alleged to Have Sexually Assaulted Students With Knife

  • Lawyer Admits Teacher Cheats Lie Detector He actually admitted to me that he did it [sexually assaulted minors].­
  • The Teacher “Mike” Was Convinced to Resign, and Was Never Convicted, Rubinstein Says
  • This Is a Continuation of James O’Keefe’s Teachers Unions Investigation

(New York) – Project Veritas has released a video exposing attorney Mitchell Rubinstein from the New York State United Teachers describing a case in which a teacher was alleged to have forced students at knife-point to give him oral sex.

The 16-minute video shows Rubinstein describing on hidden-camera the case he defended twenty years ago to a Project Veritas journalist at a union holiday party in December, 2015.

A Junior High School teacher Rubinstein names “Mike,” was accused by several students to have forced a student at knife-point or gun-point to give him oral sex.

There was overwhelming evidence including the students knowing the name of his pet parrot, the layout of his home and having his cell phone number.

AstroTurfing

What is AstroTurfing

Astroturfing is the attempt to create an impression of overall “grassroots” support for a political party, individual, product, or policy where little such support exists, (in other words, FAKE). This can also be used to engineer negative comments and reviews by creating multiple online identities and/or fake pressure groups to mislead the public into believing that the position of the astroturfer is widespread.

These “astroturf” trolls are usually paid by special interests, corporations, political extremists, and sometimes individuals to spend long hours responding to articles, comments or blogging to create phony outrage or support.

Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award-winning journalist has claimed that they are routinely paid by the U.S. government and by foreign governments to report selectively, and even distort information about certain events. Lyon also implicated governments in retaining editorial control over content. (Gee, never heard of that before).

We’ve watched mainstream media and social media go to extraordinary lengths to demonize and discredit Trump. It begs the question of why they are so relentless in this negative campaign? Here’s the deal, Trump is opposed to global governance and wants to “drain the swamp” of government corruption. He is NOT a member of the global elitists that want a huge underclass and a tiny ruling elite. Trump actually cares about the country as a whole more than he does a political ideology.The Reason The Elite Hate Trump So Much: He Is Opposed To The One World Agenda Of The Globalists

LEFTISTS TRIGGERED OVER KELLYANNE CONWAY PUTTING HER FEET ON A COUCH

Yes, really

Fresh off their collective hissy fit over Donald Trump putting ketchup on his steak, anti-Trump leftists have now been triggered by pictures that show Kellyanne Conway putting her feet on a couch in the Oval Office.

The photos caused a liberal freak out across the board, with Keith Olbermann leading the charge, tweeting, “Get your fucking feet off the furniture, @KellyannePolls. This isn’t your home.”
Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke demanded answers, tweeting, “I have so many questions about this photo, but chief among them is why nobody is telling Kellyanne Conway to get her damn feet off the couch.”

I have so many questions about this photo, but chief among them is why nobody is telling Kellyanne Conway to get her damn feet off the couch

NeverTrumper Louise Mensch even insinuated the behavior was racist.

No class @KellyannePolls – mutton dressed as lamb, feet on the couch, don’t look at African-American leaders, your momma must be ashamed https://twitter.com/Olivianuzzi/status/836399554719322113 

“Shoes on the couch in the Oval Office,” scorned Buzzfeed deputy news director Jon Passantino.

Shoes on the couch in the Oval Office

“Trying to imagine the reaction if any Obama admin. official sat on a couch in the Oval like that,” wondered MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin.

Trying to imagine the reaction if any Obama admin. official sat on a couch in the Oval like that.

Well, wonder no more.

Barack Obama himself was pictured literally hundreds if not thousands of times putting his feet up on furniture in the Oval Office, but intellectual consistency isn’t a characteristic of liberals.

Journalists chose to make the entire story about where Conway put her feet rather than talk about Trump’s meeting with leaders of black universities and colleges.

This is yet another example of Trump derangement syndrome, where every single tiny behavior or action by Trump or any of his administration gets inflated into a giant talking point.

The outrage over Conway’s couch faux pas follows a collective leftist hissy fit over Donald Trump’s hate crime of ordering his steak well done and putting ketchup on it.

Jezebel summed up the response, sniping that Trump had behaved “like a damn child” by asking for the tomato-based condiment with his meat. OK, calm down triggly puff, it’s not the end of the world.

This so enraged many that when I made a joke about anyone ordering their steak less than medium rare being a hipster, hundreds of mainstream hacks took it seriously and bombarded me with snarky messages on Twitter. Yes, really.

Jack Posobiec summed up the contrived outrage perfectly, tweeting, “The media is more upset about Trump putting ketchup on steak than Hillary putting missiles in the hands of ISIS.”

Blue Is The New Black

Since my incarceration, I frequently get the question, “have you seen Orange Is The New Black?”

rccf

I hadn’t seen it before my imprisonment, but have binge-watched 2 seasons since my release. Unlike other series, it didn’t take long to get burned out on the tedium of this show. Yes there are similarities with the show and real life incarceration, but keep in mind the series is about prison life and even though the terms are often used interchangeably, prisons and jails are different.

The United States has approximately 1.8 million people behind bars: about 100,000 in federal custody, 1.1 million in state custody, and 600,000 in local jails. Prisons hold inmates convicted of federal or state crimes; jails hold people awaiting trial or serving short sentences. The United States now imprisons more people than any other country in the world—perhaps half a million more than Communist China. The Prison-Industrial Complex

RAMSEY COUNTY CORRECTIONAL FACILITY

Once you arrive at RCCF, you are photographed, fingerprinted and charged a $20 booking fee. Once you’re booked and given inmate attire, you’re assigned to a housing unit. There are 3 different dorms for women. The main one has cells vs. bunk beds in an open room. I was assigned to the top bunk in Cell #7 and had 10 different “cellies” during my 4 months.(Oh and no pillows unless you have a medical reason to have one).

You can’t bring any hygiene items, electronic devices, or other personal items in, but you can purchase items from Inmate Canteen for outrageously exorbitant prices. RCCF inmates are given a hygiene bag after being admitted which includes a plastic cup, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, comb, an elastic hair tie and flip flops. No jewelry is allowed.

Pepsodent was the “real” toothpaste that you could order from Inmate Canteen and Suave products were like gold! Shampoo and conditioner was only 4 bucks a bottle. If you had it, you shared it with the dorm. Because I was on the lower tier, I constantly had people knocking on my cell door to “borrow” things, including water from my sink for their ramen noodles.

  • No makeup is allowed but inmates do get creative with colored pencils. The pencils also have to be purchased through Inmate Canteen unless you win them as  a prize for attending the Learning Center. The Center provides adult basic education programs in reading, writing, math, and GED prep as well as classes on personal finance, job seeking and retention, career exploration, computer skills, and driver’s license preparation and testing.
  • Lights on at 6:30am and lights out at 10:30pm (the lights are never really off, just dimmed).
  • Inmates are required to stand for count at 11:05am, 5:05pm, and 10;00pm. That means that you are locked in your cell and you must stand by the window in your door to make sure everyone is in the dorm.
  • Inmates cannot enter others cells or loiter in front of cell doorways.
  • No food from meals can be brought into your cell.
  • No note passing or canteen items between dorms.
  • Razors can only be used after 6:30pm
  • Inmates are allowed 4 books, I bible, and 4 magazines (Perk for working in the library was getting newer magazines before pages were torn out for recipes, decorating ideas, etc.)
  • Inmates are only allowed one 20-minute video visit per week using a phone and video camera.
  • Inmates get one free, 60-second phone call after being admitted. Legal calls to lawyers and probation officers are free. A listing of free calls is provided to all inmates. Other calls may have a fee that is charged by the minute. Inmates are allowed to make collect calls. The Prison Policy Initiative found that families pay $1 billion annually to call relatives in prison, and until 2013, calls could cost $17 for a 15 minutes (the FCC cracked down on this and those calls now cost $3.75). What Incarceration Costs American Families
  • No volume on TV. Must purchase $30 headset to listen.
  • $5 to see the nurse
  • $15 to have a tooth pulled

Rule violations may result in loss of good time, time spent in security, administrative segregation  restitution and/or upward departure of established sanctions

Cash or Credit? Paying for Your Time: How Charging Inmates Fees Behind Bars May Violate the Excessive Fines Clause

Excessive Fines Clause of the Eighth Amendment The Eighth Amendment provides “[e]xcessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” I guess the majority of judges didn’t get the memo!

 

“Over the last 30 years, for-profit prison corporations, such as Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and GEO Group (formerly Wackenhut Corrections Corporation), have benefited from the dramatic rise in incarceration and detention in the United States. Since the advent of prison privatization in the early 1980’s, the number of people behind bars in the US has risen by more than 500 percent to more than 2.2 million people.   Image result for treatment industrial complex

The result is an emerging “Treatment Industrial Complex” (TIC) — the movement of the for-profit prison industry into correctional medical care, mental health treatment, and ‘community corrections.’ Community corrections include corrections programs outside of jail or prison walls: probation and parole services including halfway houses; day reporting centers; drug and alcohol treatment programs; home confinement; electronic monitoring; and an array of supportive services such as educational classes and job training. Community corrections is a huge business, with three times as many people under “community corrections” programs as currently incarcerated in prison facilities.

While the prison industrial complex was dependent on incarceration or detention in prisons, jails, and other correctional institutions, this emerging “treatment industrial complex” allows the same corporations (and many new ones) to profit from providing treatment-oriented programs and services.

As a result, this emerging Treatment Industrial Complex has the potential to ensnare more individuals, under increased levels of supervision and surveillance, for increasing lengths of time—in some cases, for the rest of a person’s life.  How For-Profit Prison Corporations are Undermining Efforts to Treat and Rehabilitate Prisoners for Corporate Gain


Law enforcement agencies can also get extra money from federal grants.

Community Corrections – Grants and Funding Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)

BJA supports law enforcement, courts, corrections, treatment, victim services, technology, and prevention initiatives that strengthen the nation’s justice system. BJA offers a Grant Writing and Management Academy and provides funding through a number of programs for corrections.

Federal grants are never free and they almost always come with strings attached. Federal “assistance” allows the feds to dictate state policies and even what the states do with large chunks of their own money.


The bottom line is whether it’s jail or prison, people are being incarcerated for non-violent and non-criminal offenses. It’s the money that drives this system and there is a lot of money to be made from criminalizing nonviolent activities and jailing people for nonviolent offenses.


The essence of nomocracy, the rule of law, is limitation of the discretion of officials, and providing a process by which errors or abuse of discretion can be corrected. Some discretion is unavoidable, because law cannot anticipate every eventuality or how to decide which law may apply to a given situation. What guidance the law cannot provide is supposed to be provided by standard principles of justice and due process, reason, and the facts of each case. Ideally, officials should be mutually consistent and interchangeable, making similar decisions in similar cases, so that no one can gain an undue advantage by choosing the official or exercising undue influence on the official or on the process he operates. We trust officials to exercise such discretion as they have with wisdom, justice, and competence, to avoid government that is arbitrary, insolent, discriminatory, prejudiced, intrusive and corrupt.     Abuse of Judicial Discretion~ Jon Roland 

We’re definitely past the point of avoiding government that is arbitrary, intrusive and corrupt. The good news is that people are waking up and wising up and starting to demand a governance  that will preserve, protect and promote truth, justice and liberty.
