The minute this massacre happened, calls went out for gun safety policies, stemming the tide of gun violence, banning military-style assault weapons (which by the way, are already banned for the average citizen) and creating more gun laws. Criminals and terrorists will find weapons whatever the law is because they don’t abide by the law!
Shortly after the mass shootings, the media were reporting as undisputed fact that a heavily armed “lone wolf” gunman opened fire from a 32-floor hotel room on an open-air concert on the Las Vegas Strip in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
Police said Paddock, a retired accountant, killed himself before a SWAT team breached his room in the Mandalay Bay hotel overlooking the venue for the country music concert.
The anti-gun rhetoric and calls for more drastic efforts to strip citizens of the right to bear arms is simply a policy of more government, fewer individual rights and a hyper-violent, militarized nation constantly under martial law.
The reason the official story must always, without exception, be questioned is that the government has every reason to lie or at least mislead—what they might call “perception management” or “necessary illusions.” The government must be seen as always legitimate, and always essentially rightly-guided for it to maintain its power. So it is always in the interest of the government—in this case (and many others), embodied by the police—to make some horrible event somehow seem okay or justified (otherwise, the government’s power will eventually be threatened when people get sick of too many such horrible events, as is already happening here and abroad). This benefit of the doubt that the media give to the government must be revoked by us, the people. Don’t believe what they tell you anymore because there’s a good chance that the complete opposite is true. Clinton Kirby-Liberty Road Media
JIMMY KIMMEL BASHES GUN RIGHTS AFTER LAS VEGAS MASSACRE (BUT HAS HIS OWN ARMED SECURITY)
Talk show host’s hypocrisy exposed
OCTOBER 3, 2017
Jimmy Kimmel used the platform of his talk show last night to rail against gun rights in the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre but failed to mention the fact that he has his own armed security and recently increased it.
Breaking down in tears at one point, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host said Republican lawmakers, “should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.”
The video is YouTube’s number one trending video and has received well over a million views overnight.
Kimmel went on to slam politicians who “won’t do anything about this because the NRA has their balls in a money clip,” adding that their “thoughts and your prayers are insufficient.”
He then turned the monologue into an anti-Trump rant, declaring, “There are a lot of things we could do about it. But we don’t, which is interesting because when someone with a beard attacks us, we tap phones, we invoke travel bans, we build walls, we take every possible precaution to make sure it doesn’t happen again. But when an American buys a gun and kills other Americans, then there’s nothing we can do about that.”
Breitbart’s Ian Mason debunks most of Kimmel’s claims, almost all of which had nothing to do with the weapons used by killer Stephen Paddock during Sunday night’s massacre.
But for Kimmel, it’s very much a case of do as I say, not do as I do.
A 2015 clip from his show uploaded to YouTube features one of the security guard’s whose job it is to protect Kimmel and his production staff.
When his shirt lifts up for a brief moment, the man is seen to be carrying a Glock pistol in a holster.
In other words – Kimmel is against gun rights, unless it applies to his own personal security.
Recent reports also confirm that Kimmel has beefed up his security due to the increasingly polarized and political nature of his rants.
According to the Mercury News, “Ever since the late-night show host began crusading against the effort by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, there have been “incidents with Trump supporters” that have forced him to increase security at his show tapings.”
In response, “the show has increased personnel at both the front and back entrances. This personnel consists of highly-trained, off-duty police officers.”
Judging by the video clip of the security guard above, these security guards are almost certain to be packing.
Kimmel’s hypocrisy is a reminder of the fact that many liberals rely on men carrying guns to protect them but want to deny that right to the rest of the American people.
Michael Moore, who built part of his career on tearing down the second amendment, admitted in a 2008 Larry King interview that he owns a gun and also relies on armed security.

In this audio, Tim Kinley and Dede Evavold discuss the rampant judicial misconduct in Dakota County and MN with State Representative Tony Cornish. Cornish is the Chairman of the Minnesota House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee.
The Minnesota House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee oversees and funds all areas within public safety, including the court system, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and other corrections and justice programs.
Below are random excerpts from the video
Tim Kinley: It’s the legislature’s job to oversee the judiciary. We’ve got one of the most corrupt courts in the nation and the reason is because MN is able to hide it so well. While alot of other states are finding judges that are getting paid off and doing other things and getting caught and having the legislature deal with it, our state does nothing. They don’t even look at it. There’s been no official hearings since 2004.
Rep. Cornish: To tell you the truth, I’m about the worst person to come and ask because I get along well with judges. So I’m about the worst person in the world to come and ask for a hearing on the claim that our court is corrupt.
Tim Kinley:The problem is, it’s the legislature’s responsibility.
Rep. Cornish: We don’t bring judges in front of us and have tribunals.
Tim Kinley: Why not? You can, you should.
Rep. Cornish: I suppose we can do anything we want to. As far as a hearing, I can have any type of hearing I want to. I don’t know, I guess we have a big disconnect, I don’t see the corruption that you do.
Tim Kinley: Well you’re not willing to hear about it.
Rep Cornish: I’ve been hearing about it for at least… 2 people came all the way down to Good Thunder to talk about it. I’m sorry I’m just not interested. I don’t want to have a hearing like that.
Tim Kinley: Our structure, as far as judicial discipline and our constitution, is the same as the federal. House hears the case, senate for impeachment and the senate if they impeach, try it. That’s our system, thats in our constitution. It just hasn’t happened.
Rep. Cornish: See, this is the whole thing with me is that the complaints usually come from somebody who felt they were wronged and they want to right it. If they’ve lost a case in our system, I’m supposed to somehow believe the whole system went wrong?
Tim Kinley: Well the whole system here is a prosecutor and judge.
Rep. Cornish: I don’t know what to believe. I think it would just be another case of “he said she said” and everybody would be frustrated and mad on both sides, and we would accomplish nothing.
Tim Kinley: Checks and balances. It is a separate branch of government, but each branch has a checks and balance. The checks and balance on the judiciary is nonexistent from the legislature. When you’ve got a Board of Judicial Standards that’s beholden to the Judiciary, they all get their licenses from the Supreme Court, you can’t say anything bad about the court. It’s just unbelievable that you have over 400 and some judges in the state and over the last one hundred years none of them have done anything wrong? It’s just impossible, the odds are against it.

New Report Examines Minnesota’s “Dangerous State of Justice”
Most Child Predators Get Probation, Child Pornography Decriminalized
(MINNESOTA) Minnesota courts are granting probation for most sexual assaults on children and have virtually decriminalized trafficking in child pornography, according to a report just released by the National Association to Protect Children (PROTECT).
PROTECT’s 45-page report, “Dangerous State of Justice,” found that 65% of all offenders convicted of felony sexual assault against children (Criminal Sexual Conduct 1-4) never see a day in prison. In those crimes, 90% of victims are girls and 40% are under age 13.
“When a Stanford student got probation for raping a woman earlier this year, the nation erupted in outrage,” said J. Christian, CEO of PROTECT. “Yet, behind these Minnesota numbers are hundreds of similar cases, where judges gave rapists probation for attacks on children.”
The report also examines the Minnesota Incest Loophole, which allows judges to grant probation instead of prison for the most serious sexual assaults against children if the court deems it to be in the best interest of “the family unit.”
Perhaps the most shocking finding, says PROTECT, is that Minnesota’s sentencing guidelines have decriminalized trafficking of video and photographs of children being raped, tortured and sexually displayed. A review of 909 cases from 2001-2014 found that 90% of those convicted of possession and distribution of child abuse imagery (child pornography) were given probation.
“Dangerous State of Justice” lists sentencing patterns of specific Minnesota judges, details the state’s outrageous sentencing guidelines, and discusses problems with how child protective services responds to public reports of child maltreatment. It also makes 19 specific recommendations for legislative action.
“These judges haven’t gone rogue,” said Grier Weeks of PROTECT, one of the report’s authors. “Tolerance for sexual violence is deeply embedded in the Minnesota justice system. But it is deeply hypocritical to decry sexual violence and exploitation then treat it like a trivial crime.”
PROTECT is urging Minnesotans to ask their state representatives and senators to read the report and take action.

Below are the two judges that have been involved in my case no. 19HA-CR-15-4227.
What’s interesting is that I have received a probation violation for discussing my own case on social media ( a major free speech violation). My hearing is scheduled for September 28th, 2017. The recommendation is that the stay of execution be vacated and I would serve the remainder of my sentence, (4 more months in jail). As you’ll see in the documents below, Judge Knutson and Judge Asphaug gave a higher percentage of probation vs. prison time to criminal sexual assailants of children.
Give these Judges a call and ask them for an explanation of their sentencing decisions and if it’s normal procedure to give a harsher sentence to those that protect children vs. assaulting children.
A California judicial commission that’s operated in secrecy for more than five and a half decades is engaged in a legal battle to thwart an audit ordered by state legislators and Judicial Watch has filed a court brief supporting the long overdue probe in the name of transparency. A court hearing has been rescheduled three times and shuffled around to different judges, with the latest scheduled for August 17 before Judge Suzanne Bolanos in San Francisco Superior Court. The case sheds much-needed light on the unbelievable history of a taxpayer-funded agency that’s conducted its business in private—and with no oversight—for 56 years, even though protecting the public is among its key duties. The agency is known as Commission on Judicial Performance (CJP) and it’s charged with enforcing rigorous standards of judicial conduct and disciplining judges in the nation’s largest court system.
California’s court system serves over 37 million people and has more than double the judges (1,882) of the federal judicial system, which has 840. The CJP should serve as a tool to keep the system in check. Instead the commission has dismissed 90% of complaints about judges in the last decade, according to figures published in a California newspaper. Only 3.4% ended in disciplinary action and less than 1% led to public censure. None of the decisions were transparent, the news story reveals, and critics have demanded accountability for CJP for years, asserting that the commission gives “biased and inept judges a pass.” In its 2016 annual report, CJP discloses that 1,079 of the 1,210 complaints it received were dismissed after “initial review.” Discipline was issued in only 45 cases with more than half of the offenders receiving an “advisory letter.” Eleven others received “private admonishment,” six got “public admonishment” and eight “public discipline.” Only one judge was removed from office and another received public censure. Offenses included on-bench abuse of authority, administrative malfeasance, bias or appearance of bias and improper political activities.
Last year, a California legislative committee authorized State Auditor Elaine Howle to conduct the first-ever examination into the CJP, including whether the commission upholds due process when considering allegations against judges and how investigators determine which complaints to dismiss. Lawmakers finally acted after mounting pressure from a variety of sources, including Court Reform LLC, a group that pushes for fair and transparent courts that’s found CJP is “ineffective at enforcing judicial discipline, wastes public money and is too secretive about its operations.” An in-depth probe conducted by the group compares the data and policies of judicial disciplinary commissions in California and three other states and finds that the CJP is “under-investigating and under-disciplining judicial misconduct and misappropriating public funds.” It calls for the state auditor to investigate. Howle is appointed by the governor and her office functions as an independent external auditor that provides nonpartisan, accurate and timely assessments of California government’s financial and operational activities.
The Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards
The Board on Judicial Standards is an independent state agency (meaning no outside oversight) that responds to complaints about Minnesota state court judges for violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct. If it is determined that a judge violated the Code, the judge may be disciplined by the Board or by the Minnesota Supreme Court. The Board also handles judicial disability matters, issues advisory opinions, and seeks to educate judges and others about judicial ethics.
Board Elects New Officers for 2017-2018
On December 16, 2016 the Board elected the following officers to two-year terms beginning January 1, 2017:
Chair: Timothy Gephart (public member)
Vice-Chair: Judge David L. Knutson (See complaint against Judge Knutson and the BJS boilerplate response below)
The Board also selected attorney Cindy K. Telstad as the third member of the Board’s Executive Committee.
Brief bios of the Board members are available here.
The Board has ten members: one judge from the Court of Appeals, three district court judges, two lawyers, and four citizens who are not judges or lawyers. All members are appointed by the Governor and, except for the judges, require confirmation by the Senate. The Board is supported by an Executive Secretary, a Staff Attorney, and an Executive Assistant. The Board on Judicial Standards supports the statewide outcome of efficient and accountable government services.
The General Fund is the state government’s main operating fund with the majority of funds coming from state taxes.
The Minnesota Constitution authorizes the Legislature to “provide for the retirement, removal, or other discipline of any judge who is disabled, incompetent, or guilty of conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.” Minn. Const. Art. 6, Sec. 9.
Minn. Const. Art. 8, Sec. 2 Officers subject to impeachment; grounds; judgment. “The governor, secretary of state, auditor, attorney general and the judges of the supreme court, court of appeals and district courts may be impeached for corrupt conduct in office or for crimes and misdemeanors.”
The Minnesota Legislature just set up “figure head” enforcement agencies to give the “illusion of oversight, law and order” (Simulated Justice) to the general public. The Minnesota Legislature rendered the agencies powerless to do anything about Citizen Complaints and Minnesota Governmental unit transgressions. Our Tyrannical Government counted on most citizens not having the financial resources nor knowledge to follow through on forcing their complaints and/or issues from being addressed and resolved. And for anyone who would dare press the complaints and issues beyond the initial “status quo guardians”, demonization, discrediting and economic retaliation are used to neutralize these voices of discontent and dissent.
