Anybody Sick Of This Yet???

 

One day before she is scheduled to appear at a court hearing on an Harassment Restraining Order filed against her, Dede Evavold has been caught lying in documents she submitted to a court in Dakota County.

Evavold has a court appearance tomorrow at the Dakota County Western Service Center in Apple Valley, for an evidentiary hearing on the Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) granted by a court in Dakota County.

In her Motion to Vacate the HRO filed with the court in Dakota County on Sunday, Evavold claimed she “filed a police report against David Rucki on 12/6/2017 with the Lakeville Police Dept…”   According to Evavold’s motion, she filed a police report against David Rucki for “falsely reporting a crime” committed by Evavold.

Re: Falsely Reporting a Crime, Witness Tampering, Stalking, Harassment

Case #’s LA 17002499 and 17002613

On 7/26/2017, David Rucki filed a police report with Officer Ronald Hvinden indicating that Suspect Deirdre Evavold violated probation by posting public information online.

On 7/31/207 David Rucki was granted an Order for an Ex-Parte Harassment Restraining Order entered on July 28th, 2017 in Dakota Co. Court File No. 19AV-CV-17-1950.

On 8/04/2017 David Rucki filed a police report with Officer Ronald Hvinden indicating that Suspect Deirdre Evavold had violated the Harassment Restraining Order on 8/02/2017 and 8/03/2017 by posting public information online.

On 8/17/2017 David Rucki filed a police report with Officer Ronald Hvinden indicating that Suspect Deirdre Evavold had violated the Harassment Restraining Order on 8/15/2017 by posting public information online.

On 9/11/2017 Deirdre Evavold was charged with 3 counts of Violating a Restraining Order 609.748.6 (a) and 609.748.6 (b)

The basis of the HRO and HRO violation is blog posting with no threatening statements listed, no acts of harassment cited, and no proof that any posts constitute harassment or threats as defined by law.  David Rucki has falsely reported a crime and made material omissions and false claims of an immediate and present danger to get the malicious and capricious Ex-Parte HRO granted against me.

§609.505 Falsely reporting a Crime Subdivision 1. False reporting. Whoever informs a law enforcement officer that a crime has been committed or otherwise provides information to an on-duty peace officer, knowing that the person is a peace officer, regarding the conduct of others, knowing that it is false and intending that the officer shall act in reliance upon it, is guilty of a misdemeanor. A person who is convicted a second or subsequent time under this section is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

David Rucki also included his adult daughter Samantha Rucki as a petitioner on the Affidavit and Petition for Harassment Restraining Order with no police reports filed or signature of Samantha Rucki.

On June 7th, 2016, David Rucki engaged in witness tampering by harassing, threatening and intimidating me via the U.S. Mail in an attempt to alter my testimony in Sandra Grazzini-Rucki’s criminal case. (See Attached Hellmuth & Johnson extortion letter). David Rucki also coerced and intimidated his daughter Samantha Rucki into recanting her testimony for our criminal trials:

LAKEVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT CASE/INCIDENT NUMBER 13001278

Q: Ok you are in a really tough spot and I totally understand that. Um no kid should ever have to be in this spot and you are in a tough one. But we are looking to see kind of what happened and how we got to this point. And l, my heart breaks for you Sam, it really does. Are you being forced to be here?

A: No but it’s definitely not on free will choice.

Q: Ok what do you mean by that?

A: They basically said I have to, and I have to be here and I have to recant everything I said and it’s gonna and that’s the way its gonna have to be and they made me feel really guilty about not doing it, I started crying

Q: Ok, who is they?

A: My dad and Tammy.

I filed a criminal complaint for witness tampering prior to my criminal trial with no action taken.

609.498 TAMPERING WITH WITNESS. Subdivision 1.Tampering with witness in the first degree. Whoever does any of the following is guilty of tampering with a witness in the first degree and may be sentenced as provided in subdivision 1a:

(e) by means of force or threats of injury to any person or property, intentionally coerces or attempts to coerce a person to provide false information concerning a crime to law enforcement authorities;

(f) intentionally causes injury or threatens to cause injury to any person or property in RETALIATION against a person who has provided information to law enforcement authorities concerning a crime within a year of that person providing the information or within a year of the actor’s release from incarceration, whichever is later. (I was released from incarceration in January 2017).

Use with Stalking B. Influence/Tamper/Retaliate Juror/Judicial Proceeding/Officer Minnesota Offense Codes (MOC) Revised August 2010

David Rucki was able to harass and intimidate witnesses, interfere with the legal process and lie to law enforcement with impunity in our criminal trials and he continues to be allowed to do so.

The Lakeville Police Dept. is well aware of the fact that David Rucki has a well-documented history of coercion and intimidation and his five children, ex-wife, two neighbors and an in-law all successfully took out restraining orders against him. David Rucki also has a long history of violence including a bar fighta road rage incidentincidents of stalkingmultiple violations of restraining orders, and choking his wife.

609.749 STALKING As used in this section, “stalking” means to engage in conduct which the actor knows or has reason to know would cause the victim under the circumstances to feel frightened, threatened, oppressed, persecuted, or intimidated, and causes this reaction on the part of the victim regardless of the relationship between the actor and victim.

Directly or indirectly intending to injure the person, property, or rights of another. David Rucki filed a false personal injury case against me on 11/09/2017 in an attempt to extort further finances from my family.

David Rucki is using the criminal process for improper purposes and intentionally instituting and pursuing malicious legal actions against me. This is clear harassing and stalking behavior that is causing me to feel threatened and persecuted and I want this report filed to document the criminal activity of David Rucki.

Please send me a copy of the public portion of this incident report that includes the LA Case No.

Good Morning,

Thank you for your email.

If you are feeling harassed, stalked and threatened, you should immediately contact your local law enforcement agency to file a report.

Lakeville is not the proper jurisdiction/venue to file your report. Any criminal charges would be initiated by your local law enforcement agency with their Prosecutor or County Attorney’s Office for your area. If your local agency has any questions of us, they will request that information directly. That agency will determine the direction of an investigation.

For any additional concerns or questions, you will need to speak with your local authorities and/or County Attorney’s Office.  I encourage you to call them directly versus emailing them information.

Most agencies, including Lakeville, do not accept reports via email.

Thank you for your reply.

If you feel you are the victim of a crime, your local law enforcement agency will initiate a report.

At their request, we will work with that agency to assist them with their investigation into these allegations. If we were to add a supplement to a case file, it would be based on the investigation of your home agency.

In order to initiate the process, I encourage you to contact your local authorities by phone, versus email.  The sooner you do so, the fewer delays you will have in any potential investigation.

Media Dishonesty

Once again, the media is engaging in dishonest reporting and twisting the facts to cover up for the crimes of Dakota County.

“Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, according to Missing in Minnesota’s Twitter account, this is Michael Brodkorb’s outlet, she’s apparently 10 days late for her jail term. This is the woman who stole her kids and shipped them off down to western MN. She’s 10 days late for her jail term and even more surprising, no warrant has been issued for her arrest. Hmm, I wonder if that would be the same for a minority suspect. Probably not.”  Matt McNeil (Yes, she’s the epitome of white privilege isn’t she? Stripped of children, property and finances. If that’s privilege, I’d hate to see what disadvantaged looks like.)

Here’s the real scoop: Sandra’s appeal was affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded back to the district court for a resentencing hearing. There is no warrant because there is no reason to issue a warrant. 

These libel and slander tactics are a blatant attempt to confuse the public on the facts of these cases. They are also an attempt to induce hostility by using statements about race and “stealing children” to try to influence the attitudes of the public against us. The true facts of the case are simple. . .The kids ran away because of abuse, they asked for help, but were denied at every turn. The system failed to protect these children!

The outrageous actions by these people should make you wonder what they don’t want you to know.

Michael Brodkorb Exposed: “Search and Destroy” Blogger

Michael Brodkorb, at one time was one of the most powerful people in Minnesota’s Senate, and one of the highest paid political bloggers in the nation (just second as to what Hillary Clinton paid her blogger), has personally targeted Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and Dede Evavold in his latest smear campaign.

This means that Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, once a stay-at-home mom of 5 children and beauty queen, and Dede Evavold, a wife and mother and political pundit, has been elevated to the same level of importance as political figures working in high levels of government (who were once the subject of Brodkorb’s wrath).

Those orchestrating these attacks must be terrified of the truth coming to light, and the corruption and illegal activities in all levels of government in Dakota County being exposed…

___________________________

Michael Brodkorb is nothing but a political operative consciously discrediting, demonizing, and distorting the good guys for his own financial gain…” ~ Dede Evavold

I’m not into exposing anyone or the “gotcha” stuff…” ~ Michael Brodkorb

Blogger, Dede Evavold, of “Red Herring Alert” recently published an articleInverting Reality (Red Herring Alert) exposing blogger Michael Brodkorb’s coverage of the Grazzini-Rucki case as propaganda, and citing specific incidents where he engaged in harassment and defamation against her, under the guise of “journalism”.

Inverting Reality” also discusses Brodkorb’s troubled past , documenting a long history of out of control behavior – a domestic violence incident involving his wife, a sexual fling with Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch that ended his political career, and driving while intoxicated, crashed his car and nearly killed himself. In another embarrassment, in 2011, Brodkorb made secret recordings of conversations with his GOP bosses regarding his firing (after his tryst with Amy Koch was exposed) . The recordings revealed, among other things, that Brodkorb was struggling with his mental health – which could explain his erratic behavior.

Brodkorb also has a reputation for inciting fights within ranks of the Republican party, among his own team , where he was known for screaming fits and personal attacks against others, it said his eruptions could leave fear in his wake..” (The Fall of Michael Brodkorb) Another Republican, retired Army Lt. Col. Joe Repya, described Brodkorb as “a ‘thug’ with ‘an intimidating personality’ who ran roughshod over party members, elected officials and even volunteers…’You have to understand how frightened people within the party became of Michael Brodkorb..’ (Michael Brodkorb: Admired, feared and, above all, Republican )

Brodkorb has also been described as “always pushing the limits..” Brodkorb, once one of the most powerful people in the Senate, used his political knowledge and connections as ammo in carefully crafted blogs designed to attack political targets.Democrats denounced Brodkorb as a “Republican operative” paid to write hit pieces on their candidates. For his work, Brodkorb was paid very well. Initially Brodkorb began blogging anonymously on Minnesota Democrats Exposed (created in 2004) but in a fit of rage, he accidentally exposed his identity while posting online, and reluctantly, was forced to admit to his clandestine activities. Brodkorb says about MDE,”When you’re writing Minnesota Democrats Exposed you’re waking up every day and looking for a target. Even though that kind of thing drives traffic, it’s not a very fulfilling way to write...” (‘I’m done with partisan politics’: a Q&A with Michael Brodkorb) Due to the insulting content of MDE, Brodkorb was sued for libel – dismissed by a court in 2007. Complaints continued to be raised against Brodkorb to this day.

In the end it seems both the Democrats and the Republican got the last laugh – as Brodkorb’s antics resulted in his political career going up in flames.

Setting politics aside, what is really at issue here is Brodkorb’s character, and pattern of bullying that continues to this day, now manifesting in rage towards Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, co-defendant Dede Evavold, and supporters. The venom to which Brodkorb spews on social media rants, and articles, has led many believe that he works on David Rucki’s payroll.

Indeed, all of Brodkorb’s articles on the Grazzini-Rucki case portray Rucki in a sympathetic light and have ignored or minimized Rucki’s lengthy criminal history, as well as the extensive evidence of the abuse Sandra and the children suffered at Rucki’s brutal hands. There is only one side that Brodkorb portrays – and that is of David Rucki.

Let’s take a deeper look…

Brodkorb: “It Was All About Search and Destroy…

History is known to repeat itself, and only history can be trusted to tell the truth about Michael Brodkorb.

In 2004, Brodkorb begins blogging on Minnesota Democrats Exposed. Tactics used on MDE are eerily similar to those used by Brodkorb today, in his coverage of the Grazzini-Rucki case, “ When I was writing Minnesota Democrats Exposed, it was all about search and destroy, writing sensational headlines, driving traffic and making mountains out of molehills. It was something I got out of my system… (‘I’m done with partisan politics’: a Q&A with Michael Brodkorb)

Brodkorb’s search and destroy tactics paid off, he became indispensable to political candidates seeking to dig up dirt on opponents, and dedicated his blog to mud slinging. For his work, Brodkorb was paid generously. In November 2006, Brodkorb was the highest paid blogger in the state of Minnesota, generating $55,200 a year to work for the campaign of Rep. Mark Kennedy under the guise of “part time press consultant”. Brodkorb achieved this feat by a narrow margin – Sen. Hillary Clinton, in the #1 position, paid her blogger just $4,800 more than what Brodkorb was earning. (Highest-Paid Campaign Bloggers: Clinton, Kennedy, Santorum)

Public Domain: hdwallpaper20.com

Brodkorb strongly denied that he has ever been paid to blog, but that has proven to be just another one of his many lies. (Bloggers proliferate on campaign rolls)

A blog (from February 2006) documents Brodkorb’s long history working as a paid operative, “Over the past two years, John Kline’s campaign paid $10,000 to Weber Johnson PA, a political consulting firm run by the brother of former Republican Congressman Vin Weber. Oddly enough, the source of many anonymous attacks on Kline’s opponent Coleen Rowley have come from a blogger who is employed by Weber Johnson PA…”  (Kline’s $ To Company That Pays Anonymous Blogger’s Salary? WHO led these anonymous attacks? None other than Michael Brodkorb.

Another example, from an expose written in Feb 2012( Brodkorb paid from GOP Senate Victory Fundreveals that “the Republican Senate Victory Fund paid Michael Brodkorb $7,500 for consulting work on January 31, 2011, as documented in a just-filed campaign finance report. This was in addition to $20,625 in late 2009, and $16,875 paid to Brodkorb for research in 2010. In sum, Brodkorb was paid $45,000 in in sixteen months from the Senate Victory Fund. These payments were in addition to Brodkorb’s state employee salary as a Senate staffer…” Brodkorbearned about $90,000 a year in his job as communications chief for Republicans at the Capitol.

Michael Brodkorb made a name for himself, and a career, by playing dirty. Pay Brodkorb enough, he will say anything. He rewrites facts and distorts information. He resorts to personal attacks and defamation without remorse. Brodkorb is not an independent source – he is a check book journalist who cannot be trusted.

An Experiment Gone Horribly Wrong

During the period Brodkorb covered the Grazzini-Rucki case for the Tribune, he was contracted as “just experiment. Terry Sauer, the Tribune’s assistant managing editor for digital, gave a temporary offer to Brodkorb to write political editorials to balance the Liberal editorials published by the paper. The Tribune did not contract Brodkorb to write about the Grazzini-Rucki case; Brandon Stahl had already begun to to cover the case, and at the time was a popular reporter in Minnesota. Brodkorb’s assignment with the Tribune quickly turned into an obsession with Sandra Grazzini-Rucki that spun out of control when he became the mouthpiece for David Rucki, and began to suppress critical facts and evidence in the case to cover up the abuse of Sandra and the children, as well as the illegal activities of the court.

Brodkorb admits that he was attracted to David Rucki from their first meetingin April 2015 (Why I Wrote About the Rucki Case ) “Meeting David Rucki was one of my most emotional moments in writing about the case…. Physically, David is a big man – tall and broad. But his face looked lost and sullen. You could see the pain and sadness as he spoke about his missing daughters.

At one point, I was so overcome I had to excuse myself from our table at a restaurant in Minneapolis. I went to the restroom, splashed cold water on my face and took a moment to compose myself.”

An amber alert was never issued for the missing Rucki teens, and the police had stopped searching for them; presuming, correctly, that they were runaways. In their absence, David Rucki was given custody of all five children; at the time of the custody order he was on probation for violating a protective order against ex-wife Sandra. Rucki had also been ordered into anger management numerous times, which did nothing to quell his rage. Judge David Knutson, family court judge, ignored abuse allegations raised by the Rucki children and the evidence supporting their cries for help. The courts should have protected the Rucki children but, instead, sent them into the custody of a dangerous abuser, whom they have not been able to escape from. You will never hear about any of these facts in Brodkorb’s reporting.

For what Brodkorb had previously been paid, the Tribune wasn’t offering much. Sauer says he paid Brodkorb a modest salary – just “hundreds a month” – apparently he wasn’t worth even that! Brodkorb’s political articles failed to gain public interest; and his involvement in the Grazzini-Rucki case became the subject of controversy. The Tribune had enough of this “experiment” and in May 2016, ended their contract with Brodkorb. Sauer said about cutting ties with Brodkorb, “It really is all about us moving in another direction with the budget we’ve got.” (Brodkorb on the end of his Star Tribune blog: ‘It was never meant to be a forever thing’)

Apologetically Sauer offers to give Brodkorb a job reference.. is that sincere or just lip service? How many times do girls break up with their boyfriends and offer to “just be friends”. Same thing.

A Village Missing It’s Idiot in Minnesota

For the past several years, Brodkorb has spent long days and nights in front of a blinking screen, obsessively covering the Grazzini-Rucki case, while life goes on around him.

Blogger Dede Evavold, of Red Herring Alert, a victim, reflects, “Brodkorb became a pen for hire to harass and intimidate witnesses, interfere with the legal process and lie with impunity during our trials.

Michael Brodkorb currently has a blog that is now entirely dedicated to demonizing and discrediting me to change the narrative in this case and shift the focus away from the true facts.

He also added Allison Mann as a contributing author. Who is Allison Mann? Mann is a paralegal with Elliott Law Office and lives in Lakeville, Minnesota. Elliott Law Offices provides legal services to the father involved in this case, but Brodkorb states. ‘Elliott Law Office is not affiliated with Missing in Minnesota.’ Okay, and I’ve got prime swampland to sell you! Also, Allison Mann has been the photographer of the numerous photos taken prior to my false court hearings on my false charges…” Inverting Reality (Red Herring Alert)

Has Brodkorb been paid for his coverage of the Grazzini-Rucki case, and online attacks against Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and supporters?

Let’s Take a Look at Brodkorb’s Record:

*History of working as a blogger paid to write propaganda, and generate attacks against targets. Lies about receiving payments for writing blogs.

*Strong interest in Judge David L. Knutson, family law judge assigned to Grazzini-Rucki case. Previous connection to Knutson while working in the Senate.

*Has an emotional breakdown after meeting David Rucki, flees to the bathroom to splash cold water on himself in order to compose himself.

*Contracted to write political commentary for the Star Tribune then radically shifts focus to cover Grazzini-Rucki case, at a time that case was already being covered by a well-known reporter.

* Admitted has no prior interest in investigating missing children when becomes focused on Grazzini-Rucki case.

*Interfering in active police investigation while covering Grazzini-Rucki case for Star Tribune. One example – speaking to a witness, who was sought for questioning by police, and influencing her testimony before the police were able to talk with her.

*Attaches himself exclusively to David Rucki at all court hearings.

*Coverage of Grazzini-Rucki case is one sided, always supportive of David Rucki. Suppresses documentation and evidence that is contrary to the narrative he pushes.

*Lying, exaggerating or distorting information about Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, Dede Evavold, and supporters.

*Exclusively focuses on Grazzini-Rucki case and no other case involving family court issues.

*Devoted a blog to coverage of Grazzini-Rucki case in a similar fashion to previous blogs he created to attack political opponents. The public is not given all the facts or evidence available in the case.

*Brodkorb’s blog is the only blog that has not been threatened with legal action by David Rucki to stop reporting on the Grazzini-Rucki case.

*Brodkorb’s blog is the only blog that has not been criticized or threatened with legal action by Judge Karen Asphaug, and Dakota County, for its coverage of the Grazzini-Rucki case.

*The Carver County Corruption blog was shut down after Rucki and his high buck attorney, Marshall Tanick, threatened legal action against the blog owner. When clicking on old links to Carver County Corruption, the site opens to Brodkorb’s blog devoted to the Grazzini-Rucki case.

*Allison Mann, paralegal with Elliott Law Office, contributing author to Brodkorb’s blog

*Brodkorb’s work and efforts serve only to promote David Rucki’s interests.

More Soon…

INVERTING REALITY

Who is Michael Bernard Brodkorb?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia with additions from Red Herring AlertRepublican Party of Minnesota - Wikipedia
Michael Brodkorb is (WAS)Minnesota Republican activist, a former deputy chair of the Republican Party of Minnesota, former communications director for the Republican caucus in the Minnesota Senate, under Senator Minority Leader David Senjem and later to Amy Koch when she was the majority leader of the state senate, and the creator of the blog Minnesota Democrats Exposed In his role as an aide to Senjem and Koch, he is credited with helping to engineer the Republican takeover of the state senate in 2010. He and Koch were described as “the two most powerful people in the Minnesota Senate.”

Mike Parry leg.state.mn.us

Brodkorb served as deputy chair of the Minnesota Republican Party from 2009 to 2011, when he resigned to work for the congressional campaign of Minnesota state senator Mike Parry. Brodkorb abruptly resigned both from his position in the Senate and his position with the Parry campaign in December 2011.

Weeks later, Koch resigned her post as Majority Leader after admitting an “inappropriate relationship” with a male staffer. Brodkorb was fired the next day. MINNESOTA DEMAGOGUES EXPOSED: SENIOR GOP STRATEGIST AND SENATOR COMMIT ADULTERY?

Brodkorb announced his intention to file litigation against the State of Minnesota, the Minnesota Senate and Secretary of the Senate Cal Ludeman over his termination from the Minnesota Senate. Lawyers representing Brodkorb have announced additional claims against the State of Minnesota, the Minnesota Senate and Ludeman over allegations that Ludeman disclosed private unemployment data about Brodkorb in an interview with Minnesota Public Radio. Brodkorb’s attorneys also announced plans to sue for defamation per se over statements Ludeman made in a press release where he accused Brodkorb of attempting to “extort payment from the Senate.”

On May 25, 2012, the Minnesota Senate released legal bills showing they had spent $46,150 to the first 3 months of 2012 to prepare a defense to Brodkorb’s suit. An analysis of the bill by the Associated Press showed the bulk of the $46,150 owed was due to attorneys retained by the Minnesota Senate repeatedly meeting with Ludeman.

On June 19, 2012, the Minnesota Senate announced additional legal bills in the amount of $38,533, bringing the total legal costs incurred by the Minnesota Senate due to the termination of Brodkorb to almost $85,000 since the end of the May 2012.

The Return of Amy Koch?

Michael Brodkorb says he was victim of a plot against Sen. Amy Koch. I get it, I was Michelle MacDonald’s campaign manager when she ran for MN Supreme Court in 2014 and learned the dirty world of politics in a baptism by fire! One would think however, that you wouldn’t pull the same dirty tricks on other victims of the establishment but I guess when you’ve sold your soul, compassion isn’t very high on the list.

For those of you that aren’t regular readers, let me explain Michael Brodkorb’s role in my Case No.19HA-CR-15-4227 which resulted in 6 felony convictions for one alleged “crime” of parental deprivation. (Not kidnapping or abduction which is what the media would have you believe).

Also, there is an affirmative defense for parental deprivation, but when evidence is withheld and suppressed, the defense is useless.   609.26 DEPRIVING ANOTHER OF CUSTODIAL OR PARENTAL RIGHTS
Subd. 2. Defenses. It is an affirmative defense if a person charged under subdivision 1 proves that: (1) the person reasonably believed the action taken was necessary to protect the child from physical or sexual assault or substantial emotional harm.

Michael Brodkorb was a blogger for the Star Tribune from April 2014 through May 2016. He flipped from a republican to a democratic mouthpiece for the fake “less liberal” Star Tribune. Brodkorb became obsessed with demonizing and discrediting Michelle MacDonald when she ran for Supreme Court in 2014 against incumbent David Lillehaug (appointed by Governor Dayton). She won the Republican Party’s endorsement but narrowly lost to Lillehaug. The Star Tribune reported that her selection became an embarrassment when MacDonald’s contentious 2013 arrest on suspicion of drunken driving came to light. Never mind the forensic facts of the case:

Today, people are having to spend so muc by Michael Hudson @ Like Success

Michelle MacDonald

Michelle’s case was a traffic stop, and more accurately an unlawful pullover.  Michelle did not have any alcohol on the night she was stopped without probable cause.

  1. After dialogue with the officer about the reason for the stop, she was not asked to take a Breathalyzer or perform a field sobriety test.
  2. She asked to see a judge pursuant to Minnesota Statute 169.91 because it was obvious this officer was using questionable measures to fill his quota and was clearly abusing his power and authority. Any citizen can invoke this statute however, as can be seen from this incident, the system does not take kindly to exposing those who are not playing by the rules.
  3. Michelle was held and released from the Rosemount Police Station with NO CHARGES filed against her.
  4. On her own initiative, she went directly to a hospital for a drug and alcohol blood test to put to rest any questions about this incident. The tests came back zero alcohol and zero drugs. 
  5. Michelle filed an employee complaint against the Police Officer who unlawfully pulled her over.
  6. In response, she received a Citation in the mail with five criminal charges against her including charges for driving under the influence.
The Result: Jury convicts Michelle MacDonald of test refusal and resisting arrest.

MacDonald also filed a complaint against the GOP and several party leaders. She alleges the party threatened her and spread false information about her campaign in an effort to get her to exit the race. She said the party was in violation of the Fair Campaign Practices Act. Shocker, the complaint was dismissed by a judge with the Office of Administrative Hearings.

Oh, and by the way, Attorney Michelle MacDonald filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Judge David Knutson in Dakota County, That was shortly before the media suddenly took an interest in the case I was involved in and after she applied for an opening in the MN Supreme Court. MacDonald was the pro bono attorney for the mother in the companion case and filed the suit on her behalf. Judges however, have unlimited immunity from civil prosecution and the case was dismissed. MacDonald was also arrested during the custody trial that was presided over by Judge Knutson for taking a picture during a break. The unyielding attacks against MacDonald continue to this day.

Michael Brodkorb became the main “reporter” in our cases after we were charged and thus began the relentless harassment and stalking in the name of “journalism”.

In September 2015, Michael Brodkorb surreptitiously recorded a conversation he had with me as a Star Tribune reporter and had it turned over to the Lakeville PD. This was prior to my charges in November 2015.

 Excerpt from Evavold Audio

Police Logo

Michael Brodkorb: No, let me just say. I knew David Knutson when he was a state senator, the last time I saw Knutson was, I think in 2007 when Pawlenty was inaugurated for his second term. So that’s the last time I’ve ever seen him that I remember. I have tried repeatedly to interview him, to speak with him, about this case. The person that I’ve probably tried to interview the most, has been David Knutson and anyone affiliated with the court system. I’ve gone down to the court, I’ve called him and I’ve done everything I could to try to get him to speak on the record. I’ve spoken with his clerk and I’ve spoken with everyone that I could possibly think of to try to get him to speak. There is no way and I believe this, if someone reviews the matters involved in this case and doesn’t immediately come to the conclusion that there are problems in the family court system, they are purposely trying for there not to be a problem with the court system, because a blind person could see that.

(I know you’re reading this Mr. Brodkorb so, I think you may want to reconsider your pervasive defamatory posts you are writing about me and refer back to 34′:50″ into the audio that was provided to Lakeville PD).

At any rate, it’s around that time that Brodkorb became a pen for hire to harass and intimidate witnesses, interfere with the legal process and lie with impunity during our trials. Michael Brodkorb currently has a blog that is now entirely dedicated to demonizing and discrediting me to change the narrative in this case and shift the focus away from the true facts. He also added Allison Mann as a contributing author. Who is Allison Mann? Mann is a paralegal with Elliott Law Office and lives in Lakeville, Minnesota. Elliott Law Offices provides legal services to the father involved in this case, but Brodkorb states. “Elliott Law Office is not affiliated with Missing in Minnesota.” Okay, and I’ve got prime swampland to sell you! Also, Allison Mann has been the photographer of the numerous photos taken prior to my false court hearings on my false charges.

For those of you that are new to this site, I was served with a harassment restraining order (HRO), 3 charges for violating the order and a probation violation for allegedly “referencing the family” involved in my case. Protecting reputation is not a government interest and preventing blogging is not a government interest. Suppressing speech rarely is justified by an interest in deterring criminal conduct, and in any event the justification “must be far stronger than mere speculation about serious harms” and supported by “empirical evidence” Barnicki v. Vopper, 532 U.S. 514. 530-32, 121 S.Ct 1753, 1763-64, 149 L Ed 2d 787 (2001) (citing U.S. v. Treasury Employees, 513 U.S. 454, 475 (1995))

The malicious HRO is legally meritless and in actuality, a false police report was filed against me. §609.505 Falsely reporting a Crime Subdivision 1. False reporting. Whoever informs a law enforcement officer that a crime has been committed or otherwise provides information to an on-duty peace officer, knowing that the person is a peace officer, regarding the conduct of others, knowing that it is false and intending that the officer shall act in reliance upon it, is guilty of a misdemeanor. A person who is convicted a second or subsequent time under this section is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. When you’re above the law however, it just doesn’t matter!

False claims of an immediate and present danger were also made to obtain an ex-parte HRO..Clearly, this is just a retaliatory SLAPP suit in disguise of false criminal conduct with the intent to intimidate, censor, disparage, burden, and punish me for exercising my free speech right to discuss my case and defend myself against the slanderous information being written about me.  I get that the overall goal is to silence any further public debate about the corruption that took place in my false criminal case as well as the false companion criminal cases.

As I’ve posted before, SLAPP stands for “Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation.” It refers to a lawsuit filed in retaliation for speaking out on a public issue or controversy. You might be “SLAPPed” for actions such as posting a blog entry, posting a comment on another person’s blog, writing a letter to the editor of a newspaper, testifying before the legislature, reporting official misconduct, or circulating a petition. Often, SLAPPs are brought by corporations, developers, or government officials against individuals or community organizations that oppose their actions.

What’s amazing is that Michael Brodkotb was served with a restraining order by a co-defendant during these trials due to real repeated, unwanted and intrusive stalking behaviors (i.e. following and laying in wait to take photos, posting information and spreading false information on the internet to incite others against her).

This is a comment submitted by Pat Terry on MinnPost regarding the HRO against Brodkorb:  “Until there has been a full contested hearing on the matter, this is a non-story and to suggest that Brodkorb’s actions were somehow inappropriate based on an ex-parte hearing involving someone who is quite literally a court-certified liar through her felony conviction, is really unfair.”

The HRO was dismissed but Brodkorb makes the statement, “The chilling effect is that if someone doesn’t like coverage,” he said, “they could go to a courthouse and file what I believe to be a fraudulent document with fictitious information to game the system.”Protective Orders | Restraining Orders | Present Danger of Abuse or Harassment

“I can’t police the Internet. I’m not responsible for what – how people react rawly and aggressively to someone who has been convicted of six counts of deprivation of parental rights. And I’m very responsible in what I write in my content that I’ve written. Sandra has attempted to hold me accountable for other type of activity that appears on the Internet that I that I have no responsibility to police or address. I have a responsibility to watch what I say and how I communicate. But, and make sure it is done in an truthful honest way. And I’ve done so in the entirety in this case. … It’s a classic case of someone crying “Wolf!” Of Chicken Little the sky is falling. And eventually what she becomes is not a responsible and credible critic. Or someone who can be trusted to accurately document what’s going on. … Over the course of my reporting, have people said “I don’t want to comment.”? Sure. I don’t want to comment. And I move on to the next thing. … All for someone who just wrote the stories and approached it from an investigative stand point. … There are precious resources for the court. And we just can’t be wasting their time and money.” AM950RADIO @AM950 Radio [PODCAST]@MattMcNeilShow – Sep 16

We can however keep the taxpayers on the hook by wasting the precious court resources for a personal vendetta against me but I forgot. . . I’m not given special treatment – only special punishments!

A court also dismissed a libel suit against Brodkorb and his blog in 2007 in a case that was described as “breaking new legal ground in the world of blogging”.

Judge tosses libel suit against conservative Minnesota blogger

A judge threw out a libel suit this week against one of Minnesota’s most popular conservative bloggers, issuing a ruling that put the political Web site on the same legal ground as newspapers and broadcast news outlets.

Michael Brodkorb, a political operative behind minnesotademocratsexposed.com, expressed relief at the dismissal.

“I think this goes back to what I said from the beginning, that this was a frivolous lawsuit and the court agreed with me,” he said. “I’m glad that it’s over.”

Below are some of the defamatory posts that Michael Brodkorb and Allison Mann have put on their blog: This really is psychological projection at its finest!

If that were true Brodkorb, don’t you think I would have been charged with assaulting a police officer? Interesting that there isn’t any audio or video of my home invasion by the Lakeville PD! What really happened? Inquiring minds want to know don’t they?

Michael Brodkorb is nothing but a political operative consciously discrediting, demonizing, and distorting the good guys for his own financial gain. Again, the real goal is to use the minions and legal system to continue to stalk, harass and intimidate me by dragging me to court, wasting my time on frivolous and false accusations and damaging my reputation. Nothing lasts forever though and all will be revealed whether or not I’m silenced.
Just how far will Dakota County go to silence me? Only time will tell, but if you want to know how over the top the persecution is, take a look at the judges and attorneys involved in attempting to stop any true reporting on this case.

Any questions?

MINNESOTA: COME ON VACATION-STAY ON PROBATION

Yes, Minnesota has a low prison population, but that’s not the whole story

__________________________________
Policymakers often cite Minnesota’s low prison population, but the state also has one of the highest rates of probation in the country — a restrictive punishment that often serves as a back door to incarceration.

A familiar argument broke out at the Minnesota Legislature recently.

The committee on public safety was debating a bill that would make it a felony to tamper with a police car, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Rep. Raymond Dehn, a DFLer, commented on the number of similar bills the committee had been hearing, turning lower charges into more serious ones likely to feed the prison population.

If the goal is simply to lock more people up, Dehn said, “I just question why we call this a public safety committee.”

Rep. Tony Cornish, Committee Chair~Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance

His Republican colleague, Rep. Tony Cornish, swiftly chimed in that he doesn’t mind sending more people to prison if they deserve it. Besides, said Cornish, “we’re still very near the bottom on incarceration per capita in Minnesota.” My comments in red (Hey Tony, who decides if they deserve it? Oh yeah, the judicial mafia that’s who!)

COMING SOON: Audio on Cornish’s views regarding judicial and prosecutorial misconduct.

This is a common refrain in discussions about prison policy. And Cornish is right: Minnesota’s incarceration rate is one of the lowest in the United States.

But that’s not the whole story. Minnesota also claims one of the highest rates of people on probation in the country. One reason this matters is that people on probation or supervised release — Minnesota’s version of parole — frequently do end up in prison for “technical violations,” such as missing meetings with a supervision officer or failing drug tests. Last year, two-thirds of the state’s prison admissions were there because of technical violations.

Critics like Rep. Marion O’Neill, R-Maple Lake, think it’s time for that to change. Last week, O’Neill brought advocates in to testify on a proposal in the House that would mandate supervision officers to look for alternatives to prison when non-violent drug offenders commit technical violations.

Below is my alleged probation violation

Judge Asphaug has already had me serve more time than 80% of her perpetrators of sexual violence against children.

Click to enlarge

See Dangerous State of Justice  I don’t know about you, but this looks a lot like retaliation to me! See Appeal Reply Brief Evavold

Judge Karen Asphaug

Judge Asphaug stated I was “motivated by political ill will and distrust of government.”

At the sentencing hearing Judge Asphaug once again stated, “The mother perhaps was motivated by animosity or malice towards the father. Perhaps her motivation was a misplaced belief (or misplaced evidence) that the girls weren’t safe, but what motivated you to become involved? Not to become involved in, but to intrude into the life of another family? Not friendship for the girls or with the girls: You never met them before the day they were taken from their home. Not friendship with their mother because you knew her only briefly. We’re left to wonder if you were motivated by political persuasion, by distrust of the courts, by a desire to pursue an activist agenda of some sort.”

What’s really interesting is that my probation officer has never even addressed this false order in any of my face-to-face meetings and suddenly, I’m violating probation? This comes on the heels of the false HRO that was filed against me and signed by Judge Asphaug. → NOTICE OF OBJECTIŌNE

Clearly, my probation is being supervised by Judge Asphaug and the Communitiy Corrections staff are “just following orders”. Also, below is an email regarding my psychological evaluation that suddently and mysteriously doesn’t seem to meet probation requirements.

Subject: CASE NO. 19HA-CR-15-4227

Greg,

I have completed my psychological evaluation which was approved by Natalie Christensen, Dakota County Community Corrections (see attachment). I was told that I was to complete an MMPI with an interview afterwards, which I did.

I’m curious as to why there was ex-parte communication with the judge and why this was flagged by a probation officer months after the acceptance of the evaluation.

A neutral evaluator found nothing wrong with my cognitive abilities or mental health. My concern is that something is needing to be found by Gregory Hanson, PhD, LP who is a for-profit evaluator under contract with Dakota County.

Also, Gregory Hanson was the practitioner that conducted evaluations of two other persons involved in the Grazzini-Rucki case. “The potential for a conflict of interest, or even the appearance of one, can compromise objectivity.” AAPL Practice Guideline for the Forensic Assessment

Normally, forensic psychological evaluations are ordered to determine competency to stand trial, asserting a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, sentence mitigation or testamentary capacity. I have already been falsely convicted and sentenced, so clearly this is just further harassment by Dakota County.

I am also confused as to why I was contacted by probation officer Jeremy Lehto from Stearns County regarding transferring my probation. I was not made aware of this by Dakota County and Jeremy also found it odd that I was not contacted. I was told by Dakota County at my initial meeting that I do not meet the requirements of a probation transfer to my county of residence due to the low risk status.

I have complied with my probation requirements and the unwarranted request to take another psychological evaluation is clearly being done to harass, punish and retaliate against me for exposing the obstruction of justice in this case.

Let’s talk about the right to free speech…

The First Amendment provides in part that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.”

All convicted felons still have the right to free speech, even while in prison. Falsely convicted felons also have the right to free speech, even when they’re not in prison.

Judges often call gag orders “protective orders,” and say they are necessary to protect a person’s right to a fair trial, the fair administration of justice or the sanctity of jury deliberations. Judge Asphaug ordered the gag after the trial and no one else has been gagged except me. Go figure. Everyone else can write about my case and I can’t? Hmmmmm …

Another interesting factor in this case is that Michael Brodkorb (Blogger Extraordinaire for Dakota County) was also slapped with an HRO due to actual harassing and stalking behavior as well as misrepresentation in covering this case. He stated that it was a “violation of his First Amendment rights.” Wait a minute, he’s applauding the court’s decision to violate my rights to free speech. Hypocritical much??!

Anyhow, read excerpts below from the article Blogger Restraining order raises worry for journalists  

“Journalists must, of course, follow the law when doing their job. But aggressive reporting focused on a high-profile suspect of a crime is a legitimate and necessary role for the media.

The chilling effect is that if someone doesn’t like coverage they could go to a courthouse and file what I believe to be a fraudulent document with fictitious information to game the system,” he told the Star Tribune.

Restraining orders are sometimes given quickly by a judge in order to err on the side of protecting someone from being harmed. Later, those restraining orders are sometimes lifted if the judge, upon further evidence, realizes it’s unsupported. In this case the order was tossed out on a technicality before further judicial review could measure its validity. (Those pesky technicalities of illegally withholding/suppressing evidence, witness tampering, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct didn’t really matter in my case did they?!)

The case leaves open the potential that restraining orders could be filed against journalists by anyone who doesn’t like the scrutiny they are receiving. That’s not a comforting thought for journalists or for a society that relies on an unfettered press.”

I’ll leave it at that!

Corrupt Officials and Crooked Media

Okay, is there anyone out there that still buys into ANYTHING that mainstream media writes or broadcasts? If so, you need to pull your head out of your arse! The majority of people that I talk to, are beyond sick of the disinformation and fake and/or cherry picked news. 

For those of you that aren’t aware…CORRUPT OFFICIALS ARE FEEDING THE CROOKED MEDIA, and MAINSTREAM MEDIA AS WELL AS A LOT OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS ARE ON THEIR WAY OUT! To that I say, “Good riddance to bad rubbish!”

Anyhow, I happen to know a thing or two about disinformation and distortion campaigns created by media and public officials due to the high profile case against me: State of Minnesota vs Deirdre Elise  Evavold- Case No. 19HA-CR-15-4227.

ABC’s 20/20, Newsweek,The Star Tribune, Sun This Week and other news organizations with the assistance of Lakeville PD and the Dakota County Attorney’s Office have created prejudicial and inaccurate news reports to mislead the public. Star Tribune reporters Brandon Stahl and Michael Brodkorb (no longer employed by the Strib) also did their own separate investigation and colluded with law enforcement to deliberately spread a false narrative about this entire case.

Ron Rosenbaum, attorney, longtime radio host and true Twin Cities character and his co-host, journalist Lucy Quinlivan, are Holding Court Thursdays at 2 p.m. .

The two outspoken hosts pontificate weekly on topics ranging from law and politics to media, sports and entertainment.

Excerpts from HOLDING COURT PODCAST Thu, 22 October 2015

_________________________________________________

Ron Rosenbaum: You are not going to want to miss our next guest, Michael Brodkorb, who in my opinion, has not only done outstanding journalism work on this case of the 2 missing Lakeville girls and the mom who was just arrested in Florida. I’m not convinced that had it not been for Michael’s dogged persistence on this case whether anything would have happened at all, including this arrest.

Lucy: I think that’s very possible because he spurred other coverage by the Star Tribune.

Rosenbaum: In a moment we will say hello to Michael Brodkorb. He has some new information that has not yet been reported.   Now without further ado. Let’s say hello to Michael Brodkorb.

Michael Brodkorb

Michael Brodkorb: Thanks for the opportunity to be on.

Ron: I believe and Lucy does as well, that had it not been for your dogged persistence not only in reporting the facts about this case but literally uncovering facts about this case there’s not a doubt in my mind that this case would have died.  For some reason it’s never appeared to me that the County Attorney Backstrom in Dakota County, has taken a great deal of interest in this and for a fairly long period, it appears the police didn’t’ either, believing it was a custody fight between 2 parents. What changed that Michael?

Michael: The first thing was the story by Brandon Stahl of the Star Tribune. That just blew open the doors on this and some of the comments made by the people involved close to this case and new information. Brandon’s story and others that have picked up on this, Democrats like Steve Timmer at Left MN who’s picked up and who’s a lawyer and has been writing on it. It’s been a collective effort.

Ron: Set up the basic story so that people understand this is really a complicated fact situation that sort of began with a battle between 2 people that were married and everything has flowed from that.

Michael: This was a custody dispute, this was a very contentious divorce going on in Dakota County and it spiraled out of control from there. It led to a situation where 2 parents and the courts stepped in. During a custody dispute involving 5 kids, 2 kids ran away. When this was originally discussed, this was looked upon as a case involving a couple of kids that simply ran away.

Ron: Michelle MacDonald has been a huge advocate that believes that family court is unfair. That’s probably an understatement. Apparently there’s a network of people around the country that are involved in keeping kids like this whose parents want to keep them out of family court.

Michael: There is a network out there, a historical kind of frame-up would be kind of an Underground Railroad where there are safe houses and people who are involved in the network in hiding kids.

Thu, 19 November 2015  4th Precinct Shutdown; Missing Teens Found

Ron:  This was a custody battle that was not worthy of the criminal authorities and it was handled in family court. You have 2 missing girls for god’s sake. I’d like to think that we at least helped publicize this story.

I don’t want to rat you out Michael but there was a catch in your voice when you called me yesterday, almost like you were so emotional you could barely talk that the girls had been found. It must have been an incredible moment for you..

Michael: It was. I got a call from a source that was in the driveway that let me know the girls had been found inside the house. I couldn’t believe it. You think about yourself, as a parent you think about the 944 days these girls were gone and their father missed them.

Excerpt from article by Michael Volpe          

Brandon Stahl/Minneapolis Star Tribune
Reporter Brandon Stahl was parked outside the Dahlens’ residence at the facility for abused children when the police raided it and found the girls. How Stahl knew to be there is unclear and raises the question of leaks, since the warrant to search the Dahlens’ home was sealed, noted Stahl: 
“Both advised that they have had contact with Doug Dahlen and believed that he would be cooperative. The search warrant and sealing order were signed by the Honorable Judge Glasrud. Sheriff Walvatne and Sgt. Cooks stated that they would assist with the warrant at the residence.”

Since the warrant was sealed, whoever leaked it to Stahl committed a crime, though Stahl himself did nothing illegal by receiving it. This was not the first time, however, that Stahl received a sealed warrant. The arrest warrant for ♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦♦♦♦♦ was also sealed in August 2015 and leaked again to Stahl, who wrote articles based on both warrants.

More from the November 19th, 2015 Holding Court Podcast

Michael: I spent the summer writing a series of posts, chasing down leads and doing as much as I could do to get interest in this case.Holding Court Podcast

Ron: You developed a relationship with XXXXX XXXXX and his attorney Lisa Elliot

Michael: And the XXXXX family and sources on both sides of the issue.You get close to this story. You’re a parent, you’re a father and you think about your kids. I also have to pay compliments to the Lakeville Police Dept. and the United States Marshal Services. This story and how these girls were found is how it should have happened. There were opportunities throughout the summer and earlier for an enterprising reporter, for a journalist in this case to go knock on someone’s door and I made a decision a very long time ago I was not going to do that because I have no authority. If I find the girls they could run, they could go underground.

Ron: In other words you weren’t going to actively look for the girls, you were going to do the legwork to help people that would. Is it fair to say a major break in this case was when they arrested Sandra down in Florida? How long had she been on the run?

Michael: 8 weeks. There had been a warrant issued for her arrest for 3 counts of deprivation of parental rights. Ultimately, it became just a matter of time until they could be found.

Ron: They were found because of something that was found in the campaign manager’s (Michelle MacDonald’s) house.

Michael: There was a search warrant executed at Dede Evavold’s  house in St. Cloud. She served as both the campaign chair and the campaign manager of Michelle MacDonald’s campaign. There was evidence found that led them to the White Horse Ranch near Alexandria.

Ron: Where are the girls now?

Michael: There in an undisclosed location in Dakota County and they’re getting hopefully the privacy and space that they need.

Ron: The fear is that even though the father has custody, the fear is that these girls are brainwashed.What happens now, is there any plan? It’s not easy to get unbrainwashed.   

Michael: In speaking with family, my understanding is that these kids are going to get the space and help they need and the privacy they need to rebuild their family together.

Ron: There are people who deserve credit, Brandon Stahl, Michael Brodkorb the Lakeville Police, the Federal Marshals. I’ve never understood why Backstrom the Dakota County Attorney didn’t call a grand jury?

Michael: I think this case involves a series of complex characters. One of which is Michelle MacDonald. She can complicate a cup of soup. She has complicated this case from day one.

Ron: Do you think she intimidated them?

Michael: She’s just messy to deal with and I think if you’re going to be involved in a case that she’s involved with you’re going to have to dedicate a tremendous amount of resources. She has not cooperated-she’s a person of interest in the disappearance of these girls. She’s not cooperating. I’ll be very surprised if she wasn’t involved in some way and had some knowledge.

Ron: Where does it go from here? They could still do a grand jury couldn’t you-I don’t think that’s going to happen but it seems to me now that they’ve found the kids, the investigation is only begun.

Michael: Correct. I think where they’ll go now is criminal charges against other people that helped.

Ron: I’ve got to tell you that as far as this show. we feel privileged that you gave us the time in terms of being able to talk about this case as often as we did. Frankly it’s confounded me why the authorities didn’t take a greater interest in 2 children disappearing when there was a lot of reason to believe that they could find out where they were and who did it by some fairly simple investigative techniques which were not done by the county attorney.

Michael: I can’t thank you enough to everyone here for the opportunity to come on multiple times like I have. You’re one of the first people I called to talk about it because you’ve been so helpful.

Ron: The good news is the kids are back.

DEEP STATE / MAINSTREAM MEDIA PUSHES COUP D’ÉTAT AGAINST TRUMP
Elites want him impeached

| Infowars.com – MAY 17, 2017

Deep State / Mainstream Media Pushes Coup D’état Against Trump
IMAGE CREDITS: DAVIDKING / FLICKR.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Trump is the target of coup d’état being undertaken by the Deep State (intelligence agencies with a continuing commitment to a globalist New World Order) in conjunction with a corporate- and government-controlled mainstream media that believes Trump’s surprise victory in November 2016 can be reversed by getting Trump impeached before the end of 2017.

To achieve this goal, the Deep State and the MSM are employing classic techniques of propaganda and disinformation that were first utilized by Nazi Germany in the 1930s, only to be advanced and perfected by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

In a series of articles, I am going to explain how the propaganda and disinformation techniques operate, why they are effective, and how they must be combated.

In the 1960s, I was trained by Edward Bernays, the father of public relations, whose book entitled Propaganda: The Making of the Public Mind, first published in 1928, influenced Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda for Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945.

In the 1980s, I was recruited by a team of psychologists and psychiatrists and received a “Top Secret” clearance to participate in a State Department program aimed at teaching career State Department officials how to survive terrorist hostage situations – a project created in the wake of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran during the 1979 radical Islamic revolution in Iran instigated by Ayatollah Khomeini.

The First Principle of all propaganda and disinformation involves the manipulation of public opinion by the creation of a lie – known in today’s terminology as a “narrative” or a “meme” – that is crafted to be sufficiently credible so a persistent campaign of repeating the lie can change public opinion, even if the lie – the “narrative” or the “meme” – is totally untrue, concocted without any basis in fact, evidence, or reality.

Goebbels crafted a “meme” using the “science” of eugenics emerging in the 1930s to vilify Jews, resulting in the horror of the holocaust in which an estimated 6 million Jews were brutally murdered.

A current disinformation meme being advanced by the Deep State and MSM is the “Russian Collusion” meme that maintains Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to hack emails from the Democratic National Party as a tactic employed to defeat Hillary Clinton.

In the world of disinformation, it does not matter Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said publicly on May 4 that the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign aides and Russian officials, or that the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on May 8 that he still has not seen any evidence of any kind of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian foreign nationals.

This is the first sign we are dealing with disinformation – namely, that there is no evidence for the claim.

To keep the lying meme going, the propagandist qualifies the claim, ever so slightly, as to leave open the possibility the claim could yet be proven true, if only the public could get access to the “real information.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, first began countering the “no evidence” fact with an assertion that there is “circumstantial evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia” – a statement he made on NBC’s Meet the Press for the first time on Sunday, March 17.

In his next move, Schiff pressured the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) to temporarily remove himself from the “Russian Collusion” investigation, after the House Ethics Committee decided to investigate whether Nunes may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information following his controversial visit to the White House to review reports the Obama administration had Trump campaign officials under electronic surveillance.

The Deep State knows the MSM-propagated “Russian Collusion” meme will simply refuse to print evidence it was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta that were being paid by Russia, or that Democratic National Committee computer expert Seth Rich was the one who hacked DNC emails, sending some 44,000 DNC emails to Julian Assange at Wikileaks.

Propaganda Corollary #1 is that any facts that disprove the disinformation meme are castigated as “conspiracy theories” – a term designed to disparage anyone bold enough to have perceived the truth.

It is essential to understand that a well-crafted disinformation meme like the “Russian Collusion” narrative is impossible to dislodge by facts that prove the narrative baseless, completely “without evidence,” or untrue.

Propaganda Corollary #2 is that anyone attempting to disprove the truth of the disinformation meme is targeted for ridicule as part of the conspiracy theory.

In designing a counter-disinformation strategy, it is important to realize the president of the United States is endowed by the Constitution with formidable powers.

This leads us to the following:

Counter-Propaganda Corollary #1 is that well-crafted disinformation memes cannot be refuted or defeated by the truth.

Counter-Propaganda Corollary #2 is that what is needed to take all the air out of a well-crafted disinformation meme is a greater, more immediately crisis that demands the 24/7 attention of all Deep State actors and MSM propagandists.

Among the president’s enormous powers, we find the power to change the subject, effectively taking the disinformation meme off the table.

How President Trump can defeat the Russian Collusion meme by changing the subject is the focus of the next article in this series.
