Red Herring Alert

There's something fishy going on!

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.”

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.

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.

We’re Not Crazy. . .The Systems Are!

The degree of insanity in the courts is something that is indescribable unless you have witnessed it for yourself. Small is big, left is right, slow is fast, up is down and weak is strong.

A term  has even been coined for individuals that experience psychic injuries due to assaults by legal abuses, ethical violations, betrayals, and fraud in the court system. It’s called “legal abuse syndrome” and was identified by Dr.Karen Huffer, a marriage and family counselor who was also brutally defrauded in the courts.

In my case State of Minnesota vs Deirdre Elise Evavold- Case No. 19HA-CR-15-4227the court ordered that I complete a forensic psychological evaluation and cognitive skills assessment as I “showed no remorse or comprehension” for my actions. “The absence of remorse should never justify additional punishment because due process guarantees defendants the right to assert their innocence, and defendants cannot be expected to show remorse if they do not admit the crime.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24618518 

The goal was always to get me to plead guilty or be found guilty when I’m not!

My sister also wrote a letter to the judge stating that I may have an undiagnosed mental health issue, hoping this would persuade the judge to apply leniency and a downward departure in sentencing. At that time, my family believed I could receive up to 12 years in prison due to the six felony convictions. In actuality, this was one alleged “crime” charged 6 different ways, which made someone with no prior criminal history, into a multiple offender in a single court case.                                                                     

Remember, it is an affirmative defense if a person charged under 609.26 DEPRIVING ANOTHER OF CUSTODIAL OR PARENTAL RIGHTS 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.

You can’t however, use the affirmative defense if you are deprived of your evidence and if the court prevents certain evidence from being presented at the trial of the case. As I’ve stated before, the overall goal is to break you down and get you to accept any injustice thrown at you. This was done through the use of perjured testimony,  illegal withholding and suppression of evidence to use in support of the affirmative defense, due process violations, witness tampering, abuse of discretion, judicial bias and malicious prosecution.

Anyhow, I completed my court ordered evaluation and unfortunately for those that wanted me to be diagnosed with a mental illness, I passed!

Am I being paranoid that the courts would want me to be diagnosed with a mental illness? I don’t think so . . . If the judge commits someone to treatment, it is typically for a six month period. The case is then reviewed with a hearing to determine whether the commitment should be extended. The exception to this is cases involving Mentally Ill and Dangerous Persons, Sexual Psychopathic Personalities, or Sexually Dangerous Persons. In those cases, there is not an end date to the commitment period; instead, periodic reviews are conducted by the court to determine whether the commitment continues to be necessary. http://www.mncourts.gov/Help-Topics/Civil-Commitments.aspx

Twin Cities lawyer suspended over mental health issues

Jill Clark faced discipline for accusing judges, others of misconduct. 
An outspoken and controversial Twin Cities attorney who repeatedly ran for a seat on the state’s high court has been suspended from practicing because of “serious mental health issues.”
According to an order filed Wednesday by the Minnesota Supreme Court, Jill Clark is unable to competently represent clients because of the unspecified mental illness experienced in 2012, which, according to the order, “raised substantial questions regarding Clark’s … ability to competently represent clients.”
The suspension puts a hold on disciplinary proceedings involving Clark. The Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility (OLPR), which is responsible for lawyer discipline, filed a petition against her last February alleging that she falsely accused judges of misconduct and filed paperwork that made it appear a judge signed an order that he actually had denied.
Clark repeatedly tried to move the disciplinary proceedings to federal court, and the matter was eventually heard by District Judge Gerald Seibel, who was appointed as a referee by the state Supreme Court. Clark was hospitalized shortly before a hearing could take place last June, and Seibel recommended that the Supreme Court place her on “disability inactive” status. She appeared before the state Supreme Court in October to argue against that recommendation. Seibel recommended “disability inactive” status for a second time.
OLPR Director Martin Cole said Clark indicated she would again challenge the recommendation, but had not done so before her suspension. It remains in effect until either disability or disciplinary proceedings are completed, Cole said.
The suspension means Clark cannot represent other clients, but can represent herself in further court proceedings. She did not immediately respond to an e-mail or phone message seeking comment Thursday.
In December, Clark filed a federal lawsuit against Hennepin County District Court, the Minnesota Supreme Court, the Minnesota Court of Appeals and more than a dozen other defendants. In a complaint more than 100 pages long, she alleged the OLPR complaint against her stemmed from discrimination, retaliation and several other constitutional violations because she spoke out against judges or planned to run against them in upcoming elections. The case has been transferred to a federal judge in Iowa for further proceedings.
Clark has written about the case on her blog, Jill Clark Speaks, in which she refers to herself as a judicial reformist. She has repeatedly run for Minnesota chief justice and placed third in a primary in August with more than 61,000 votes, or 20 percent of the ballots cast.
Clark, who has practiced law in the state since 1988, is controversial in some legal circles for zealously defending clients and has been accused of obstructing the legal process and causing trouble. She and Jill Waite earned notoriety for several cases, including their successful defense of two Iowa brothers accused of assaulting an off-duty Minneapolis cop and of a former state representative accused of spousal abuse.
Waite was suspended from practicing in 2010 for failing to file tax returns in a timely manner and for other reasons, but Clarke continued practicing. In 2011 she obtained a $60,000 jury verdict against a local blogger, but the award was overturned last year by the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

THE REAL STORY SUMMED UP IN ONE PARAGRAPH

John Remington Graham                               

Jill Clark is one of the most gallant and capable lawyers in Minnesota. I think I can assess the quality of a lawyer, because I have been one 46 years, including service as a public defender, public prosecutor, and law professor. Jill is on “disability” status, because she has asked for judicial reform. That’s the real story in a nutshell. — John Remington Graham of the Minnesota Bar (#3664X)


  Same song, different verse. . .

(credit:Minnesota Judicial Branch/Michelle MacDonald For Supreme Court)

Attorney Michelle MacDonald also ran for the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2014 endorsed by the Republican Party but lost, getting 46.5 percent of the vote. MacDonald  ran again in 2016 however, Natalie Hudson won re-election. She was chosen by Gov. Dayton to take Justice Alan Page’s spot when he retired.

According to MinnPost, an incumbent hasn’t lost a re-election bid since the 1940s.

Michelle MacDonald also sued a judge on behalf of a client. Going up against a judge and the legal system has made MacDonald a target of the very system she is fighting against every day. Judge David Knutson has continually demonstrated misconduct and went to extreme measures to intimidate MacDonald at the trial of her client in 2013. During a recess on the second day of the trial, MacDonald was placed under arrest for the offense of Contempt of Court due to taking a photo when court was not in session.

In April of 2013, a Rosemount police officer arrested Michelle MacDonald on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. Denying she’d been drinking, MacDonald refused a field sobriety test unless she was in the presence of a judge. Minnesota Statute 169.91

Michelle was labeled with a “DUI”, which had nothing to do with the forensic facts of what happened. Michelle’s case was a traffic stop, and more accurately an unlawful pullover by Alex Eckstein.  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, resisting arrest

A Dakota County jury convicted Minnesota Supreme Court candidate Michelle MacDonald of refusing to submit to a breath test and obstructing the legal process in connection with an April 2013 traffic stop.

This should have been the headline in ALL media coverage of this insanity!   

MacDonald has stated that in order to demonize and discredit anyone that is exposing corruption, they either portray you as “Crazy, a Criminal or a Conspiracy Theorist.”

We also have Mr. Michael Brodkorb who became the main mouthpiece for spreading disinformation when MacDonald ran for Supreme Court. Brodkorb was and has been fixated on MacDonald and our criminal cases, covering them exclusively and not covering any other case or other news story. Brodkorb has lied by ommission and has refused to report facts and details of these cases. (Brodkorb and Judge Asphaug also made sure that the private letter my sister wrote to the judge was made public).                                        

In journalism the term hack writer is used to describe a writer who is deemed to operate as a mercenary or “pen for hire”, expressing their client’s opinions in articles. (I think it’s pretty obvious who Brodkorb’s clients are)!

Comments Brodkorb has made in some of his writings about me:

Evavold connected to Michelle MacDonald

Evavold previously served as Michelle MacDonald’s campaign manager for MacDonald’s campaign for the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2014.

Evavold is not an attorney, but is an activist, who also ran a blog focused on exposing what Evavold and her supporters believe are injustices and corruption in the judicial system


Last but not least, we have the 20/20 hatchet job on this case that originally aired in April 2016 and was rebroadcasted in March 2017. What do they have to gain in pushing this false narrative? Well, six enormous media conglomerates combine to produce about 90 percent of all the media that Americans consume. The mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the establishment and promotes the agenda of the establishment.

The big news networks have developed an almost incestuous relationship with the federal government in recent years.  But of course the same could be said of the relationship that the media has with the big corporations that own stock in their parent companies and that advertise on their networks.
This is one of the reasons why we very rarely ever see any hard hitting stories on the big networks anymore.  The flow of information through the corporate-dominated media is very tightly controlled, and there are a lot of gatekeepers that make sure that the “wrong stories” don’t get put out to the public.  7 THINGS ABOUT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA THAT THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW 

Family Courts are “government” and as such are supported by public funding. A multibillion dollar enterprise has been created by the family court divorce, domestic abuse and child abuse industries. Currently, non-profit and for profit advocacy groups nationwide and in the state of MN are obtaining court connected federal funding through Health and Human Services to infulence custody cases.

Jury Deliberations

Dakota Co. Courthouse

The jury started deliberations in the Sandra Grazzini-Rucki case at 1:00 pm today. No verdict reached. Will resume deliberations on Thursday, July 28th at 9:00 am.

At the beginning of this trial, a sign was posted on the courtroom door that stated:

In order to ensure a fair trial, the Court hereby issues the following ORDER:

1. All electronics devices must be powered off, or subject to confiscation for the length of the trial.
2. No audio or video recording of any form.
3. No person may wear clothing or accessories that are designed to influence the jury.
4. Any person who diisplays facial expressions or utters verbal outbursts that may influence the jury or witnesses will be removed from the courtroom.
5. Any person who violates this order will be removed from the courtroom and may be found in contempt of court and subject to the penalties therefor.
Signed by Judge Aspaugh

Okay, let’s recap some of the fairness that Dakota County has demonstrated in 19HA-CR-15-2669 State of Minnesota vs Sandra Grazzini-Rucki.

  • Illegal withholding of evidence.
  • Wrongful arrest and imprisonment by US Marshals based on fabricated charges by Lakeville PD.  Charges: Assaultive  Felony – Fugitive- Kidnap Minor

Osceola County Uniform Charging AffidavitRisk Asssessment

  • Unfair chance to present a defense: All criminal charges against David Rucki were ruled inadmissable by Judge Karen Aspaugh at the beginning of the trial. David Rucki-Judge Knutson-Criminal Defense Matters. Today, Dakota County Assistant Attorney Kathryn Keena objected 4 times throughout the closing arguments of the defense. When questioned regarding reason, she stated “never mind.” Numerous other disruptive behaviors noted during the closing arguments: Keena ripping paper, Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom shifting loudly in his seat (why is he even there?) and David Rucki leaving and returning to the courtroom. Sounds to me like they’re a little nervous,  so maybe the jury isn’t rigged after all?!
  • Collusion – where two persons enter into a deceitful agreement,usually secret, to defraud and/or gain an unfair advantage over a third party. David Rucki, Dakota Co. and media haven’t even pretended to maintain a discreet appearance in front of the public.

4bebc-brodkorb_rucki_love_elliot_donehower_19av-fa-11-1273_012616

It should also be noted that David Rucki was shaking hands with Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom in the court hallway today.  

  • Charge Stacking: The practice of charge stacking is a simple and terribly effective method for prosecutors looking to win cases. The technique entails finding as many possible criminal counts to “stack” against the defendant in order to strengthen the core case of the prosecution.This strategy is made wide open to prosecutors, because the main deterrent against stacking charges is the law of double jeopardy. Charge Stacking: Gambling with People’s Lives

Missing in Minnesota @missinginmn During a break in the trial, MacDonald was being loud & obnoxious in hallway, confrontational – I told her not to badger me.6:17 PM – 25 Jul 2016

The Real Story: Judge Aspaugh called a break before the 6 threatening gunshots from David Rucki were to be played for the jury. Michelle MacDonald calmly comented to Michael-Cindy that he probably didn’t want to return to the courtroom to listen as he didn’t want to hear the violent behavior of David Rucki and wouldn’t report on it anyway. (Go figure, he never mentioned it.)
Start at 4:35 to hear gunshots.

On the same day of the trial (Day 5), July 25th, 2016, Michael-Cindy tattled to the bailiff that Dede Evavold was a witness and couldn’t be in the courtroom. Oh but wait, she had been released from her subpoena on July 21st, 2016.

Funny how Michael-Cindy also never reported on the surveilance video of David Rucki’s stalking behavior at Sandra Grazzini-Rucki’s residence and photos of stalking and harassing at US Bank with children in the car as witnesses. Also never mentioned is the fact that an order for protection was in place.

Today closing statements are scheduled to begin at 10AM. It’s clear that this has been a rigged case from the beginning. We can only hope that the jury is able to see through the minutia and that they are given a thorough explanation of the affirmative defense:

2015 Minnesota Statutes

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;

The verdict must be unanimous, so even if one juror disagrees with the rest of the jurors and votes differently, a verdict can’t be returned to the court. This right provides great protection to the defendant and requires the government to have to prove to each juror that the defendant committed the charged crime.

Excerpts from Why Juries Must Agree

Typically, judges declare mistrials when a jury is unable to reach unanimous agreement on conviction or acquittal.

In the event of a mistrial, the government has a choice: It can abandon the prosecution entirely or try for a retrial.

The requirement puts a serious line of defense between the accused and the government, with its vast resources, said Thaddeus Hoffmeister, a law professor at the University of Dayton. “You want to stack the deck a little against the government,” he said.

The difficulty in achieving a unanimous verdict also serves a purpose. “There’s evidence that those juries deliberate longer, lead to discussions that might not otherwise take place,” said Sherry Colb, a law professor at Cornell.

STAY TUNED!

Unwarranted: Was the Arrest Warrant Against Sandra Grazzini-Rucki Improperly Handled?

In August 2015, a sealed warrant for the arrest of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was “accidentally” posted on the public webpage of the Dakota County Sheriff’s office leading to the warrant being widely published, and shared, in news media outlets. Sensitive information about the sealed warrant was also given to abusive ex-husband, David Rucki, from The Star Tribune. Dakota County Sheriff Tim Leslie claims the leak was just a “glitch”.

The original warrant was then pulled down from the public website then re-sealed again, as if nothing had ever happened. The original warrant was put under a 2nd seal (re-sealed) and never served to Sandra but instead sent U.S. Marshalls after her, claiming she was a “fugitive”. How can you be a “fugitive” when you were never informed of proceedings, and never served with a warrant?

Could that “glitch” cost Dakota County their case against Sandra? A recent court ruling states that improper service is grounds for dismissal; certainly in this case, there was not only improper service but outright negligence to protect information so sensitive that the judge ordered the warrant to be sealed. 

Signed, Sealed, but NOT Delivered

When someone is suspected of a crime, law enforcement obtains a warrant of arrest which is a document signed by a judge authorizing the detention of an individual, or authorizing the search and seizure of an individual’s property.

In the case of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, a nation wide warrant for arrest was submitted by Prosecuting Attorney Kathryn M. Keena before a judge, and put under a seal on August 12, 2015. Sandra was charged with 3 counts of felony deprivation of parental rights. According to Keena a seal was needed “because disclosure could cause defendant to flee, hide, or otherwise prevent execution of the warrant”. The seal was to last until Sandra is arrested, and returned to the state. What evidence did Keena have to substantiate a sealed warrant? To date, no evidence has been presented that would justify such an extraordinary measure.

Was a Sealed Warrant Necessary?

A seal means that the warrant is filed in secret, and its existence will not be made public. The subject of the warrant has no idea that they are wanted on charges until they are apprehended. A sealed warrant is usually reserved for special circumstances where public knowledge may jeopardize the investigation and/or issuance of the warrant.

Putting a seal on an arrest warrant is NOT a common procedure; and is even more extraordinary when used against an ordinary Minnesota Mom. Sandra has no prior criminal history, and has attended all scheduled court dates (related to ongoing custody issues, she has NO prior criminal history) – even travelling from out of state to do so. Sandra has also worked at the same job for 28 years, and maintains a stable lifestyle. She posed absolutely no risk of danger to anyone, and was certainly not a flight risk. 

Further, the police knew exactly where to find Sandra – according to the police report, the Lakeville police had previously issued search warrants for the airline she worked for, and had no problem finding out her address, phone number, and employment information. Sandra was being monitored before the warrant was issued. While this was happening, Sandra maintained her normal routine, and did not display any signs that she would evade any legal process.

A summons to appear at a court date would have been sufficient, rather than going to these unnecessary and costly, efforts used by Dakota County.

Sealed Warrant Goes Public Due to a “Glitch”

Despite the exhaustive efforts of Dakota County to seal the arrest warrant, there was a glitch (or perhaps a leak?) and out of all the warrants entered in the system…somehow only the sealed warrant belonging to Sandra was “accidentally” posted publicly on the Dakota County Sheriff website. Dakota County continued to issue a fugitive warrant on a woman who did not even know a warrant had been issue. Sandra had never been served, nor had her attorney been served (in fact the attorney was only notified of the existence of a warrant after a call from the Star Tribune!)

And if that was not bad enough (gasp!) the Star Tribune, who had been in contact with Lakeville police for months, was alerted and went public, announcing an arrest warrant had been issued for Sandra.

Brandon Stahl of the Star Tribune broke news of the arrest warrant on August 18th: Mother sought in case of two missing Lakeville girls

The Star Tribune then informed Sandra’s attorney, Michelle MacDonald, about the sealed warrant…and gleefully spread the news across multiple social media venues. The seal had been broken on the warrant as the news spread nationwide thanks to the special efforts made by Stahl and Brodkorb at the Star Tribune. Keep in mind one of the common reasons that a warrant is sealed is to prevent news of the warrant from reaching the media, who could compromise the case with disclosure.

By “coincidence” a local news outlet reports on the close relationship between Lt. Jason Polinski of the Lakeville Police Department and the Star Tribune,A Star Tribune story in April provided new information that helped police build a case for an arrest warrant for Grazzini-Rucki, who previously was considered a “person of interest,” in the case, Polinski said.Police looking for mother in disappearance of daughters in Minnesota

Even David Rucki himself acknowledged the connection,”..Rucki added he was “very grateful” for the assistance of law enforcement and media attention..” David had alot to be “grateful” for considering Michael Brodkorb of The Star Tribune tipped him off about the sealed warrant. Father of missing Lakeville sisters ‘relieved’ by warrant for ex-wife’s arrest/

At that point there is no reason for the warrant to remain sealed, instead providing Sandra with a notice to appear in court would have been appropriate. Instead, Dakota County relentlessly pursued Sandra. At great cost to tax payers, Dakota County had the warrant removed from the public website and then re-sealed. Sandra was apprehended by U.S. Marshalls, in Florida, and she endured a brutal journey being transported across the country, chained up in the back of a van for over 8 days. Keep in mind that Sandra works as a flight attendant, and she could have easily arranged her own transportation back to Minnesota – as she had done numerous times in the past to answer to proceedings related to her custody dispute. 

Recent Case Presents Compelling Reason for Dismissal

 The common law and the Constitution afford the public a qualified right of access to judicial records and proceedings. 

The significance of the sealed warrant being publicly posted, and then making the news outlets, is that information about the sealed warrant was not only improperly released but also improperly served. Even more important, every individual is protected by laws designed to uphold personal liberty. These laws are in place to limit the government’s ability to take our freedom or property without due process. 

In the 2011 case of Jones v. Brown County (Civil No. 11-CV-568, SRN/FLN) the District Court found that, “ Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(5), improper service of process may be grounds for dismissal. Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(5). In this case, none of the defendants have been properly served. “

The Court then dismissed a claim made against Brown County because, “It is clear that process was not properly served in this case. “ And, “With regard to the individual defendants, under Minnesota Law service may be effectuated “by delivering a copy [of the summons and complaint] to the individual personally or by leaving a copy at the individual’s usual place of abode with some person of suitable age and discretion then residing therein.” Minn. R. Civ. P. 4.03(a). The only attempt at service upon the individual defendants in this case was by mailing a copy of the summons and complaint to the county offices in which these defendants work. These mailings did not constitute service by mail, as the mailings did not include two copies of Form 22, or a substantially similar notice and acknowledgment form, as required by Minnesota law. Minn. R. Civ. P. 4.05. Plaintiffs failed to meet the requirements for service upon an individual. Plaintiffs claims should be dismissed for insufficient service of process…

And because Plaintiffs improperly served the original Complaint, this action was never properly commenced. See R. 3.01. “ Source: https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/USCOURTS-mnd-0_11-cv-00568/pdf/USCOURTS-mnd-0_11-cv-00568-1.pdf

Given that the sealed warrant was improperly served, the Prosecutor’s Office should promptly dismiss all charges. Plz stay tuned to Red Herring Alert for news and updates!
