A. Philip Randolph in 1925 organized and led the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first predominantly African-American labor union. In the early Civil Rights Movement and the Labor Movement, he was a voice that would not be silenced. His continuous agitation with the support of fellow labor rights activists against unfair labor practices in relation to people of color eventually led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to issue Executive Order 8802 in 1941, banning discrimination in the defense industries during World War II. The group then successfully pressured President Harry S. Truman to issue Executive Order 9981 in 1948, ending segregation in the armed services. One has to wonder if this fueled the power grab of the 1940’s by the federal judiciary. See: America’s Fail From Democracy to Oligarchy.
In 1954 the Brown v. Board of Education decision is regarded as having sparked the modern civil rights era when the Supreme Court rules deliberate public school segregation is illegal.
In 1954, Charles “Sherrod first participated in sit-ins at white churches with the goal to desegregate them. He was a key member and organizer of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) during the Civil Rights Movement. He became the first SNCC field secretary and SNCC director of southwest Georgia. His leadership there led to the Albany Movement. He also participated in the Selma Voting Rights Movement and in many other arenas of the 1960s movement era.
In 1955 Rosa Parks refuses to give up her bus seat to a white man. “Parks’ act of defiance and the Montgomery bus boycott became important symbols of the civil rights movement. She became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation. She organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including Edgar Nixon, president of the local chapter of the NAACP; and Martin Luther King, Jr., a new minister in Montgomery Alabama who gained national prominence in the civil rights movement.
At the time, Parks was secretary of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP. She had recently attended the Highlander Folk School, a Tennessee center for training activists for workers’ rights and racial equality.”
In 1956 Republican Congressman Jack Brooks would refuse to sign The Declaration of Constitutional Principles (known informally as the Southern Manifesto) a document written in February and March 1956, originally authored by Strom Thurmond and completed by Richard Russell in the United States Congress, in opposition to racial integration of public places. The manifesto was signed by 101 congressmen (99 Southern Democrats and two Republicans) from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
“July, 23, 1956 No Senator from the South is so well equipped or so zealous to become the head and front of a sustained fight for segregation. ” as former Governor of Georgia Senator Herman Talmadge. “He is hampered by no entangling alliances. He does not have to pull his punches. He is committed exclusively to the preservation of what he would call “the Southern way of life.” Any changes which Washington may bring are likely to accentuate his single-mindedness and make him the choice and master spirit of racial reactionism in the Senate. His program of Southern solidarity advanced in You and Segregation will have a sounding-board in his Senate activities.” 
November 1960 and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon loses Presidential election to Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts.
February 1, 1960, Lunch counter sit-in by four college students in Greensboro, N.C. begins and spreads through the South. On April 17, 1960, the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) is founded by Ella Baker
1961, The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) organizes Freedom Rides into the South to test new interstate Commerce Commissions regulations and court orders barring segregation in interstate transportation. Riders are beaten by mobs in several places, including Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama.
Charles Sherrod dropped out of college to become a full-time civil rights activists and member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). A supporter of racial integration, he recruited white as well as black members to assist with voter registration efforts. In 1961 he was among one of four students, along with Diane Nash, J. Charles Jones, and Ruby Doris Smith, to drop out of college to become a full-time civil rights activists and members of SNCC. When the four students arrived in Rock Hill, they almost immediately engaged in sit-ins to fight back against segregation. After only one day in Rock Hill all four of the college students were arrested because of a sit-in they participated in, at a local diner. Like many activists, the students at the time chose jail with bail in an attempt to overcrowd the jails. They were sentenced to 30 days hard labor, however, Charles Sherrod did not take bail. Charles Sherrod was one of the first to practice the “jail- no bail” strategy. [7 Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee]
Tom Hayden’s “introduction to virulent southern racism came in 1961 when he ventured to Albany, Georgia, first to write an article about the Deep South organizing done by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee [SNCC] and, second, to become a freedom rider on a train to Albany that December.
It was then he met, and came to admire, a brave young civil rights worker named Charles Sherrod, whom everyone in the movement simply called “Sherrod.” Albany was a segregated town near Plains, Georgia, and the home of Hamilton Jordan who went on to become Jimmy Carter’s chief of staff. Sherrod was the kind of front-line young militant who eventually brought about the New South of Carter, Bill Clinton and Al Gore, among others. Sherrod had to face violence, and the possibility of death, every day in his effort to mobilize young people and their parents against the suffocation of fear.
Sherrod, and his equally committed wife Shirley, made a conscious decision to stay in rural Georgia long after the voting rights laws were passed and the national media departed. I left Albany after my two brief and harrowing experiences in 1961, and never returned until I spoke at commemoration of the Albany civil rights movement a few years ago. The Sherrods were still there. She was engaged in programs supporting rural farmers, while he had served on the city council and was a minister in a nearby state prison. There were 500 people at the event, the stalwarts of the past.
January, 1962 the Albany movement responded with an intensified boycott of city buses, and the bus company was forced out of business.
So Shirley Sherrod’s life cannot be reduced by a dishonest and amoral right-wing blogger into a few seconds of videotape 25 years old. She is one of many thousands who had the force of character to face racist abuse, and seemingly immovable state power, when they were demonized and disenfranchised. They were the trees standing by the water, and they would not be moved. They tried to bring their morality to politics, not accept the politics of Machiavelli.” 
Albany now began a new round of encounters between Negro demands and official intransigence. A few days after the bus incident, Sherrod and Charles Jones were arrested for sitting in the Trailways lunchroom. Shortly after that the City Commission turned down the Albany Movement’s petition for a redress of grievances. And in March the trial of the original “Freedom Riders” arrested on December 10 began.
As Charles Sherrod entered the courtroom to attend that trial, he walked to the “white section” in the front , and was immediately knocked to the floor by Chief Deputy Sheriff Lamar Stewart, who then pulled him back to the rear of the courtroom. When Bob Zellner, Tom and Sandra Hayden, and Per Laursen sat down next to Sherrod in the “Negro section,” deputies pounced on them and dragged them out of the courtroom. Judge Carl E. Crow, watching all of this, told newsmen, “The officers were enforcing a rule of the court.” SNCC The Abolitionist Pg 134, 35
“James Meredith becomes the first African American student admitted to the University of Mississippi.” 
In April 1962 there was more trouble. Dr. Anderson, Slater King, Emanuel “Bo” Jackson, and Elijah Harris, four leaders of the Albany Movement, were found guilty of “disorderly conduct” for picketing downtown as part of a general boycott of stores which did not hire Negro employees. Also, Charles Jones, Cordell Reagan, and two others were sentenced to sixty days on work gangs for refusing service. And twenty-six more people were arrested in lunch counter sit-ins.
July 1962, national attention came to Albany again when Martin Luther King, Jr., and Ralph Abernathy, called back to stand trial for leading the parade in December, were found guilty in Recorders Court and sentenced to forty-five days. Defense Attorney Donald Hollowell asked Judge Durden for legal citations on which his decision was based. He said he didn’t have any, but that it was based on “general research of the law.”
With King’s arrest, Washington officialdom got busy as it had never done before in the Albany crisis, and somehow, through the payment of the fine by an unidentified man, King and Abernathy were released. They had wanted to stay in jail to continue dramatizing the Albany situation, but now they reluctantly left. Abernathy told a mass meeting that night: “I’ve been thrown out of lots of places in my day, but never before have I been thrown out of jail.”
In November 1962 a special election was held in Massachusetts to fill the Senate seat vacated by John F. Kennedy who’d become President. The seat was won by his 30 year old brother Edward Moore “Ted” Kennedy. Ted Kennedy was re-elected to a 6 year term in 1964 and later re-elected seven more times.
1963 June 11, President John F. Kennedy in his Report to the American People on Civil Rights asked for legislation “giving all Americans the right to be served in facilities which are open to the public—hotels, restaurants, theaters, retail stores, and similar establishments”, as well as “greater protection for the right to vote”. Kennedy delivered this speech following the immediate aftermath of the Birmingham campaign and the growing number of demonstrations and protests throughout the southern United States.
Kennedy was moved to action following the elevated racial tensions and wave of black riots in the spring of 1963. Republican Congressman Jack Brooks of Texas as ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee would help write the Civil Rights Act”
“Brooks was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1952, where he served for the next five decades. As a member of the influential Texas congressional delegation, Brooks became a close friend of powerful House Speaker Sam Rayburn and Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson during the 1950s. He was a regular member of Speaker Rayburn’s “Board of Education,” a close group of congressional supporters.
June 20,1963, President John F. Kennedy meets with civil rights leaders, Future Congressmen from Georgia, John Lewis, Rev Martin Luther King, Jr. Rabbi Joachim Prinz, Rev. Eugene Carson Blake, and A. Philip Randolph at the White House in an attempt to call off the March on Washington scheduled for August.
A. Philip Randolph was the head of the March on Washington, which was organized by Bayard Rustin, on August 28, 1963 the March on Washington took place at which Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech. In the early Civil Rights Movement and the Labor Movement. The purpose of the march was to advocate for the civil and economic rights of African Americans and show support for President Kennedy’s Civil Rights Act. In front of the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King would deliver his historic “I have a Dream” speech in which he called for an end to racism. The march on Washington is credited with helping to pass the Civil Rights Act.
On November 22, 1963, Brooks rode in the motorcade carrying President John F. Kennedy, Vice President Johnson, and many members of the Texas congressional delegation through downtown Dallas. Following Kennedy’s assassination, Brooks was on Air Force One for Lyndon B. Johnson’s swearing-in. He then flew with the new president, Lady Bird Johnson, and Jacqueline Kennedy back to Washington, D.C. During the Johnson Administration, Brooks remained a strong supporter of President Johnson and his legislative program. Throughout Johnson’s presidency, Brooks and his wife Charlotte dined with the Johnson family at the White House on a weekly basis.” 
Lester Maddox’s refusal to adjust to changes following the passage on July 2, 1964 of the Civil Rights Act manifested itself when he filed a lawsuit to continue his segregationist policies. Maddox said that he would close his restaurant rather than serve African Americans. An initial group of black demonstrators came to the restaurant but did not enter when Maddox informed them that he had a large number of black employees. On July 3, 1964 day after passage of the Civil Rights Act more African Americans attempted to enter the restaurant. Maddox confronted the group with a bare pickaxe handle. Maddox provides the following account of the events:
Mostly customers, with only a few employees, voluntarily removed the twelve Pickrick Drumsticks [a euphemism for pickaxe handles] from the nail kegs on each side of the large dining room fireplace. They had been forewarned by the arrival of Atlanta’s news media of an impending attempted invasion of our restaurant by the racial demonstrators and once the demonstrators and agitators arrived, the customers and employees pulled the drumsticks [pickaxe handles] from the kegs and went outside to defend against the threatened invasion.12]Photo from CNN.com Inside Politics June 25, 2003
Marker at the spot of the Pickrick at Georgia Tech
The “invasion” Maddox referred to above was three black Georgia Tech students who had asked to be seated.
Maddox gained the approval of segregationists by leasing and then selling the restaurant to employees rather than agreeing to serve black customers. He claimed that the issue was not hostility to blacks, but constitutional property rights. He even built a monument to “private property rights” near the restaurant.
Maddox closed the Pickrick on August 13, and reopened the business on September 26 as the Lester Maddox Cafeteria, where he pledged to serve only “acceptable” Georgians. During a trial for contempt of court on September 29, Maddox argued against the charges because he was no longer offering service to out-of-state travelers or integrationists. On February 5, 1965 a federal court ruled that Maddox was in contempt of court for failing to obey the injunction and assigned fines of two hundred dollars a day for failing to serve African Americans. Maddox ultimately closed his restaurant on February 7, 1965, rather than integrate it; he claimed that President Lyndon Johnson and communists put him out of business.
Shirley Sherrod, revealed her version of the events shortly after the controversy surrounding her resignation as Georgia State Director of Rural Development for the United States Department of Agriculture. Shirley [Millers Daughter] reported that Miller, who owned 500 acres (2.0 km2) in Baker County, Georgia on which he grew corn, cotton and peanuts, would sometimes argue with Hall, whose cows would wander into her family’s pasture. She said that Hall confronted Miller about six or seven cows Miller claimed belonged to him. According to Sherrod, when Miller told Hall that they could settle the matter in court, Hall shot Miller in front of three witnesses.
The shooting occurred on the night of March 15, 1965 and, according to the death certificate, Miller died on March 25 from gunshot wounds to his chest, abdomen and liver. Hall, who claimed he killed Miller in self-defense, was charged at least three times in connection with Miller’s death and a grand jury declined to prosecute him each time.
Civil rights attorney C.B. King represented the Miller family in a civil suit against Hall seeking monetary damages for lost income, medical, and funeral costs. King, asserting that the jury panel was predominately white despite the 1960 census showing that the majority of the county’s over 2,000 residents were black, attempted to have the Baker County Board of Jury Commissioners redraw jury lists. Judge Emeritus Carl E. Crow went forward with the proceedings and on September 12, 1966, the jury found in favor of Hall.
In 1966, Charles Sherrod left the SNCC after its recently elected chairman Stokely Carmichael expelled white members. He moved north, to New York City, where he received his master’s degree in sacred theology from the Union Theological Seminary. He then returned home to direct the Southwest Georgia Project for Community Education with Shirley Sherrod. In 1969, Sherrod, his wife Shirley, and some other members of the Albany Movement helped pioneer the land trust movement in the U.S., co-founding New Communities, a collective farm in Southwest Georgia modeled on kibbutzim in Israel. 
“In 1969, New Communities received a planning grant from Office of Economic Activity OEO the agency responsible for administering most of the War on Poverty programs created as part of United States President Lyndon B. Johnson‘s Great Society legislative agenda. New Communities was encouraged to expect substantial funding for implementation, but Governor Lester Maddox would not permit further funds for the group to come into the state.” 
During this period, Jimmy Carter was motivated to oppose the political climate of racial segregation and support the growing civil rights movement. He became an activist within the Democratic Party. Carter was in favor of racial tolerance and integration—at one point, the local White Citizens’ Council boycotted his peanut warehouse when he refused to join them—but he often kept those feelings to himself to avoid making enemies. By 1961 he was a prominent member of the community and the Baptist Church as well as chairman of the Sumter County school board, where he began to speak more loudly in favor of school integration. A state Senate seat was opened by the dissolution of Georgia’s County Unit System in 1962; Carter announced his run for the seat 15 days before the election. Rosalynn, who had an instinct for politics and organization, was instrumental to his campaign. The initial results showed Carter losing, but this was the result of fraudulent voting orchestrated by Joe Hurst, the Democratic Party chairman in Quitman County, with the aid of the Quitman County sheriff. Carter challenged the results; when fraud was confirmed, a new election was held, which he won. The civil rights movement was well underway when Carter took office. He and his family had become staunch John F. Kennedy supporters.
In 1966 Carter ran for Governor of Georgia the result was a sharp blow to Carter, who was left deeply in debt. His attempt to rescue the race from Callaway had resulted in the unlikely election of the segregationist Lester Maddox, which he considered an even worse outcome. Carter served in the Georgia State Senate, and in 1970, he was elected as Governor of Georgia, defeating former Governor Carl Sanders in the Democratic primary on an anti-segregation platform advocating affirmative action for ethnic minorities. That same year Lester Maddox would win election to Lieutenant Governor of Georgia.
From these historic accounts of history, it’s known, Charles & Shirley Sherrod were founding members in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Charles spent thirty days in jail protesting a sentence for participating in a lunch counter sit-in in Rock Hill South Carolina, Tom Hayden ventured to Albany Georgia in December 1961 to become a freedom rider on a train to Albany where he met Charles Sherrod. Charles Sherrod’s Freedom ride activism that December brought him to a court appearance before Judge Carl E. Crow.
In 1964 a group of black demonstrators came to the restaurant of Lester Maddox but did not enter when Maddox informed them that he had a large number of black employees. By any chance did SNCC Charles and Shirley Sherrod precipitate, or participate in the sit-in of Maddox Pickrick restaurant? Lester Maddox closed the restaurant on February 7, 1965, rather than integrate it. On March 15, 1965, a black farmer and Shirley Sherrod’s father Hosie Miller a Baptist deacon died ten days after he was shot during a livestock dispute with Cal Hall, a white neighbor. Every attempt to hold Hall accountable for the murder was blocked by whites and the same judge Sherrod had faced regarding the December Albany freedom rides in which Martin Luther King and Ralph Abernathy had participated Judge Carl E. Crow.
In 1966, Charles & Shirley Sherrod were married and left the SNCC after its recently elected chairman Stokely Carmichael expelled white members and Jimmy Carter lost his bid for Governor to Lester Maddox. At the time John Lewis was the youngest of the “Big Six” leaders as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Had the run in at the Pickrick with Lester Maddox resulted in the murder of Shirley’s father, the expelling of white members in the SNCC, Jimmy Carter’s losing to Lester Maddox. Did Charles and Shirley depart to New York where he pursued a master’s degree in sacred theology as a non violent response to these events?
Albany a segregated town between Plains and Newton Georgia, home of Hamilton Jordan, Jimmy Carter, Charles an Shirley Sherrod, and Hoosie Miller respectfully. Carter a farmer in Plains Georgia and prominent member of the Baptist Church. Charles Sherrod a baptist minister first participated in sit-ins at white churches with the goal to desegregate them. Hoosie Miller Shirley’s father a black farmer and baptist deacon. Jimmy Carter a baptist politician, a staunch supporter of Civil Rights, and affirmative action. Charles a baptist minister with the SNCC involved in voter registration and non violent activism. Is it likely that Charles and Shirley worked to get out the vote in support of Jimmy Carter’s political efforts?
Having returned to Georgia in 1969 and after the murder of Martin Luther King did Charles and Shirley work on getting out the vote for Jimmy Carter’s winning bid for Governor in 1970? Is there any question Jimmy Carter, Lester Maddox, Charles and Shirley Sherrod, Hoosie Miller, John Lewis, and the minister from Georgia Martin Luther King were all acquainted?
In 1969 did the relevant past of these events play a significant role in Lester Maddox blocking the Sherrod’s funding for the development of New Communities? Do you think perhaps once Jimmy Carter became Governor he attempted to help the Sherrods? Did Maddox as Lieutenant Governor stop him?
This one battle and its aftermath leads to the elimination of The People’s Constitutional Rights to Due Process by Senator Joe Biden, the Brutus of 1990, turning America into an oligarchy controlled by a Government king selling out to the highest bidder after Citizens United. See post Americas Fail From Democracy to oligarchy.
And if the chance of one battle—that is, a particular cause—has brought a state to ruin, some general cause made it necessary for that state to perish from a single battle. In a word, the main trend draws with it all particular accidents. – Montesquieu.
If you consider yourself an American patriot concerned at all about the future of this Country. Concerned at all about your children’s future; I implore you not to give in to boredom, tribalism, dissociation, or apathy and read, comprehend, verify and take action on the facts in this story. It’s extremely important that you do.
Fact in the 161 year history prior to 1950 the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court was a republican federalist 151 years. Ninety-three percent is a main trend.
Between 1938 – 1946 Major attacks were made on the pillars of the Constitution of the United States while federalist republican Harlan F. Stone presided as Chief Justice. His Federalist lead Supreme Court failed to block the Executive and Legislative branches from violating the constitutional doctrine of Separation of Powers. Allowing the creation of headless Agencies with legislative and judicial powers. This was a completely avoidable violation of the Separation of Powers doctrine. It’s not hard to speculate that in this time period of American History racism and bigotry were major contributing factors.
The Doctrine Separation of Powers and its precepts were based on careful analysis of how to keep a government from failing as had happened for thousands of years. Throughout history violation of the precepts lead to the demise of nations.
- During the reign of Harlan Stone the Supreme Court codified the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in biased favor of Federal Government representation.
- Created and established with precedent the Government’s protection under Sovereign immunity seen by legal experts as unsupported by the Constitution or relevant history of its creation while defining it as an anachronistic relic and doctrine that should be eliminated from American law.
- Codified the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure in biased favor of Federal Government representation.
- Closed the door of the Court house on private citizens convening a grand jury to prosecute corruption of government officials. A move seen by legal experts as a willful subversion of well-settled law.
- Established the State Attorney Generals who serve at the discretion of the President, as gatekeepers of the courtroom and judge controlling prosecution and defense of Government.
- Gifted the newly formed Agencies with deference allowing them to create and uncreate laws at will or simply unconstitutional power to protect themselves from its violation. It’s well documented the Supreme Court views the doctrine unconstitutional though it remains today with unchecked power.
Fred M. Vinson appointed by Harry S. Truman was the last Democratic Chief Justice appointed serving seven years 1946-1953, every Chief Justice since to today’s chief Justice John Roberts has been a republican federalist. This means the swing vote on the Supreme Court has been a federalist republican 218 of 231 years giving federalist republicans 94 percent advantage over all swing votes.
Between 1953 and 1961 Richard M. Nixon was Vice President of the United States. Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W.Bush loaded the Supreme Court and Federal Courts with Federalist Judges as did John Adams in 1803.
“In a word, the main trend draws with it all particular accidents.” – Montesquieu“
In 1965 Taylor Caldwell wrote the Novel A Pillar of Iron. Ironically the events and individuals above with help from Vice President AL Gore, Senator Patrick Leahy, and others lead to the Goss Conspiracy.
The implementation of this premeditated conspiracy of treason on the Constitution by all branches of the Federal Government, was telegraphed by Federal district Judge Bruce Van Sickle. Judge Van Sickle laid out the plan as the Goss Principle in his memorandum and order in the Case of Coleman v. Block February 17,1984.
The Coleman case was a class action lawsuit by over three hundred thousand farmers who claimed a violation of their due process rights by the USDA. Ironically The linchpin Brutus of treason in the implementation of this treason on the Constitution was former Vice President Joe Biden as he held the position of Chair on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Joe Biden middle of the night Saturday October 27, 1990 just prior to recess ahead of midterm elections passed amendment S.3204 by voice only vote in the Senate and Congressman Jack Brooks suspending House rules at 11:57 Pm, Congress agreed to the amendment to H.R.5316 by voice vote at 12:09 Am When they then all left Washington and returned home for midterm elections.
The Biden Amendment altered the judicial oath of office 28 U.S. Code § 453.Oaths of justices and judges in 1990 see Notes Amendments 1990. The Amendment gifted Federal Judges power to substitute what Judge Van Sickle calls fair informal procedure for the Constitutional right to due process. The power to deny due process was augmented by existing precedent of the Federal Courts which empowered Federal Judges to discriminate without recourse against any litigant in a federal court proceeding. The legal justification for this is also presented in the Goss Principle laid out by Judge Van Sickle where its underlying legal support was founded on the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Judge Van Sickle waited on the implementation of this change to issue his final ruling in Coleman v. Block on July 5th 1991. He had previously waited on Congress, the Senate, and the President throughout the cases history to dictate the outcome of the Coleman v. Block Class action lawsuit.
Bipartisan Passage of this Treason on the Constitution was dependant on support of the Congressional Black Caucus ‘CBC’ led by Congressman John Conyers. America’s strongest congressional supporter of Civil Rights legislation and reparations. In exchange for the CBC support of this treason on the Constitution was expected passage of the Civil Rights Legislation of 1990. However, President George H.W. Bush vetoed the legislation on October 22, 1990. A committed bipartisan effort of Congress attempted to override the President’s veto two days later and failed by a single deciding vote cast by former Vice President Dan Quayle.
As many as 100,000 minority and women farmers had claimed the USDA discriminated against them in the administration of the USDA’s farm loan programs. This discrimination went beyond the denial of the due process violations acknowledged in Coleman v. Block, Matzke V. Block, Allison v. Block, Curry V. Block , and other state sponsored actions.
These individuals and their legal representations showed up at Clarence Thomas office of Civil Rights prior to President Reagan’s scuttling of Civil Rights offices throughout his administration. Clarence Thomas’s opposition to Affirmative action was not well received by the CBC, minorities, or the women movements of the time. See for example New York Times “The Black Caucus Votes To Oppose Thomas For High Court.” July 13, 1991. and “The Inquirer “Critics Assail Thomas’ role At The EEOC He Wins Support of Black Group, Nunn” July 17, 1991. These two are linked to my personal archived copies. Since putting out the first draft copy of my book, numerous supporting documents by major publications have disappeared and or been altered on the internet.
Passage of the 1990 Civil Rights act was needed to provide these minority farmers with restitution for the USDA’s discrimination because the 1964 act had no provision for damages caused by discrimination. The 1990 act would rectify this legislative issue by providing limited damage awards to these minority farmers. There are a number of these cases that followed completion of the Treasons implementation in 1994. The most widely known is Pigford v. Glickman which included settlement with Charles and Shirley Sherrod and their 6000 acre black farmer co-op in the middle of a White farmer community in Plains GA home of Former President Jimmy Carter.
Preventing White plantation farmers from due process and restitution for their grievances against the Government, while providing damage awards to minority farmers for discrimination was viewed by the Congressional Black Caucus, Congressman Conyers, and federalist republicans as a form of reparations.
In order to force President George H.W. Bush into signing the Civil Rights Legislation of 1990. Now Minority Senate Chair of the Judiciary and his partner in Crime Senator John Danforth of Missouri used Anita Hill to hold Clarence Thomas Supreme Court Nomination hostage as ransom for his signature on the Civil Rights Act of 1991.
Read for yourself the words of then Senator Joe Biden during the confirmation hearings on Clarence Thomas confirmation. Nomination of Judge Clarence Thomas to Be Associate Justice of The Supreme Court Of The United States. U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Washington DC. U.S. Government Printing Office Washington 1993.
“He [Congressman John Conyers] is the toughest ally and toughest opponent on the Judiciary Committee. I know it [Clarence Thomas Confirmation] is not going anywhere unless I get his agreement before it goes.” Pg 667
“[Y]ou are the black leadership of the Nation. They say, No. 1, that this really only reflects a difference on affirmative action; that’s what this is all about. The only thing you all are concerned about is affirmative action….” Pg 700.
Affirmative action being the Civil Rights Act of 1991. Remember most all of Congress supported passage of the legislation. They new it was all part and parcel of the Goss Conspiracy on the Constitution.
- September 23, 1991 Senator Joe Biden said, Anita Hill agreed to allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation to investigate the allegations.
- September 23, 1991 FBI agents interview Anita Hill in Oklahoma. She then sends a copy of the affidavit to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
- September 24, 1991 Senator John Danforth introduces the Civil Rights Act of 1991 legislation on the Senate floor. Why Danforth it was Ted Kennedy’s legislation?
- September 25, 1991 Clarence Thomas learns of the allegations by Anita Hill and is interviewed by the FBI.
- On September, 27, 1991 the judiciary committee deadlocks 7 to 7 on the nomination of Clarence Thomas.
- October 6, 1991 NPR airs Nina Toten Bergs story, based on a copy of Anita Hills affidavit which had been leaked by the Senate Judiciary committee.
- October 9, 1991 USA Today reports Anita Hill was told by Senate staffers her signed affidavit alleging sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas would be the instrument that “quietly and behind the scenes” would force him to withdraw his name. Nomination of Judge Clarence Thomas to Be Associate Justice of The Supreme Court Hearings Before the Committee on the Judiciary United States Senate 102 First Session Oct 11- 13 1991 Part 4 of 4. Printed by US Government Printing Office Washington 1993 Senator Arlen Spector Pgs 64-65.
- October 11, 1991 Senator Joe Biden opens the hearings. “Professor Hill made two requests to this committee,” he says. First, that the committee investigate the charges and, second, that the charges remain confidential.” I believe we have honored both her requests,”
- Please watch this video and let Joe Biden tell you exactly what actually happened!
- Joe Biden sent the FBI on September 23, 1991 to Anita Hill’s home in Oklahoma with a subpoena to compel her to complete an affidavit of her allegations. I would consider that quite coercive wouldn’t you?
- This is not something that you initiated, am I correct?
- Anita Hill: No
- What made her go public. Well NPR reporter Nina Totenberg called her with the affidavit in hand that Senator Joe Biden should have ensured and ensured her would not be made public.
- She’s testifying because of unexpected events Senator Joe Biden and the Judiciary committee are responsible for. Unexpected events because Senator Joe Biden had committed to her, her allegations would be kept confidential.
- She is a hostile witness who had no intention of ever being there to make allegations against Clarence Thomas.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is using Anita Hill to hold Clarence Thomas Confirmation hearing hostage, as ransom for President George H. W. Bush’s signature on passage on the Civil Rights Act John Danforth placed on the floor of the senate on September 24, 1991. The day the Senate Judiciary Committee had the allegations Senator Joe Biden subpoenaed from Anita Hill in hand.
- October 15, 1991 Clarence Thomas was confirmed 52,48, the narrowest margin in more than a century.
- October 26, 1991 The New York Times runs their story The Compromise on Civil Rights. Bottom line ” Scorecard: Bush gave in completely to the Danforth position.” In other words no changes from Kennedy’s 1990 Civil Rights Act Bush had previously vetoed and overrode.
There are lot more truths to the story strung among all the lies on both sides of the aisle in this bipartisan treason against the Constitution, Americas Farmers, Rural communities and the rule of law in America.

“In the last 225 years since the creation of the Federal Judiciary in 1789, only 8 of its judges have been removed from the bench. They hold all their adjudicative, policy-making, administrative, and disciplinary meetings behind closed doors and never appear before a press conference. They act with impunity. The evidence reveals their motive, means, and opportunity to engage in financial and non-financial wrongdoing by abusing power to deny due process, disregard the law, and decide by reasonless summary orders. They have hatched a system of wrongdoing so routine, widespread, and pervasive among themselves and between them and insiders as to have turned wrongdoing into their Judiciary’s institutionalized modus operandi.”
To Quote the Third Degree.net on the Federal Judiciary.
“In 2010, after years, sometimes decades in the metaphorical trenches, trying to vindicate the federal rights of average Americans through domestic legal processes, a coalition of U.S.-based good government advocates reported to the United Nations that “the ability of average Americans to effectively petition their government is so diluted or compromised that what would otherwise be our constitutional and universal human rights are no more than privileges, doled out at government discretion.” It took nearly five (5) more years for some advocates from that coalition to confirm underlying patterns of abuse.”
The effects of the Federalist Republican Goss Conspiracy on the Constitution was well described by Ted Kennedy’s speech on the Senate Floor when he attacked the nomination Robert Bork‘s Supreme Court nomination. Bork had been Richard Nixon’s Solicitor General and instrumental in the Saturday Night Massacre. It should be noted that Bork abandoned his lifetime Judicial Appointment in 1988.
“Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.” Senator Ted Kennedy
It’s my educated guess that while Democrats aided the Republicans in this bipartisan act of treason, This was Ted Kennedy fingering Robert Bork for the framework of the Goss Conspiracy based on the 1975,76 rulings in Goss v. Lopez and Mathews v. Eldridge respectfully.
Their actions and efforts are in fact perfectly described by Taylor Caldwell’s depiction of Cicero in defending his actions in the Catiline Conspiracy.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared”
Montesquieu father of the Separation of Powers Doctrine expounded the the following view of Roman History.
“It is not chance that rules the world. Ask the Romans, who had a continuous sequence of successes when they were guided by a certain plan, and an uninterrupted sequence of reverses when they followed another. There are general causes, moral and physical, which act in every monarchy, elevating it, maintaining it, or hurling it to the ground. All accidents are controlled by these causes. And if the chance of one battle—that is, a particular cause—has brought a state to ruin, some general cause made it necessary for that state to perish from a single battle. In a word, the main trend draws with it all particular accidents.”
Ironically the “one battle—that is, the particular cause bringing the US Government to ruin, was a battle over segregation of a White Farm Community in Plains Georgia. A battle fought by former President Jimmy Carter for Charles and Shirley Sherrod regarding a 6,000 acre black farmer Co Op called New Communities in Plains Georgia. The Segregationist Senator Herman Talmadge and the Lieutenant Governor of Georgia Lester Maddox both blocked first Governor Carter and Former President Carter’s attempts to help the Sherrods save their farming Community from financial collapse.

Ironically in 1862, Isaac Newton, the first commissioner of US agriculture, reported to his president, Abraham Lincoln, that haciendas brought down Rome. The message to the country was pretty clear: small family farmers were the foundations of the American Republic. How history rhymes America.
Former President Jimmy Carter on the State of American Government.
This treason on the Constitution effectively makes every federal judge sitting on the bench today a strong arm protector of a criminal enterprise, and under the rule of law invalidates every decision in every court case the Courts have handled since 1990. Furthermore in makes every member of Congress and every President since an American Traitor. Make no mistake they’ve turned the government into a criminal enterprise and empowered it as a king that can do no wrong. They’ve converted the Federal Judiciary into a protection racket for the criminal operation of We The Peoples Government.
Justiceship Nominee, now justice Neil Gorsuch reportedly said that:
“An attack on one of our brothers and sisters of the robe is an attack on all of us”
The Judiciary has protected itself by granting Judges absolute immunity. The Government with sovereign immunity, employees with qualified immunity and the ability to change the laws when needed to protect themselves. Congress does not expose the treason that’s undermined the Constitution for the same reason.
Shared deception creates bonds of necessity. Those involved in the deception need each other to support the lies. If one caves to the truth or is exposed, all involved are seen in the harsh light of day.
This may actually be the source of the judicial sickness known as Black Robe disease .
Having learned of all this and experiencing it first hand myself when I attempted to bring this conspiracy to light as it had been implemented into the procedural design of the USDA Administrative hearings. I wrote the following into a motion before the Federal Court. It prompted the Federal Judge to not only send a US Marshall after my wife and I but to also have Homeland Security contacting us.
A corrupt Federal Agency aided and abetted by a corrupt Federal Court is a travesty of justice for American democracy an insult to the U.S. Judicial system, to the Constitution of the United States of America, and to Life , Liberty, and Justice for all. It results in tyranny, oppression, and absolute despotism of the people justifying completely and succinctly the second amendment to the constitution of the United States. There is no greater criminal than the criminal that sits on the bench robbing America of its foundations.
The Declaration of Independence was supported almost entirely by the failures of Great Britain to recognize the colonist rights under the Magna Carta to Due Process. Fifty thousand relatives of the American people died in the American revolution to free America from such oppression. These traitors have destroyed those rights and dishonored every American Veteran thats fought for democracy since in a single decade of greed and incompetence. Make no mistake they’re evil deeds oppress the poor and middle class and enrich the wealthy. WE THE PEOPLE should prepare for the dissolution of Government as we know it. History never repeats but always rhymes and the greatest minds of history would tell America their Government is doomed.
Recently the Senate Dems put out a report called captured courts which exposes some of what the federalist have been up to.
I personally believe there’s only two ways to rid our Government of the Criminal enterprise now in control.
One is revolution the other is the fourth branch and true sovereign of the nation under the Constitution, We The People hold all branches accountable for the conspiracy of treason that ended the American republic before a public hearing and jury trial.
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people. ” John Adams.
“Trial by jury is the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its Constitution” Thomas Jefferson 1789
You need to step up and get involved if you want a better future for your children and the world. If you would rather see an attempt by the people to bring back a Constitutional government sign the petition. Tell your family, friends, neighbors spread the word to sign. Call your Senator, Congressman and demand they support this petition for your Government stand trial. The Goss Conspiracy is written not to just tell the story but detail the evidence.
Most Americans seem clueless about their civic responsibilities. Principal enlightenment historian, author, and engineer of the U.S. Constitutions foundation Montesquieu; warned citizens in the treatise Spirit of the Laws:
“The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.” Montesquieu, Spirit of the laws, 1748.
“The traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.”
Unfortunately, after the Bill(s) of rights, American, British, French, and more, humanity lost touch with the roots of war, thousands of years of human history, the rise and fall of Kings, Monarchies, Dynasties, Feudal warlords, Religions. How and why these governments rose to power and what caused them to come hurtling down.
My question for humanity?
Is it perhaps time to consider a very different kind of Government constructs? How did Einstein define Apathy?
“Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.” Albert Einstein
Could we all step Outside the Box, work together, use our minds, redefine Governing of humanity and the planet on truth, science, knowledge, and like nature focus on the pursuit of humanity’s perfection?
Ask Giordano Bruno This time if we join together they want to hang us ALL. Considered Father of Modern Science.
Twenty-five hundred years ago Confucius had done just that. Imagine 2,500 years ago just trying to survive in the world without electricity, running water, cars, and bicycles. Think about it all, it’s a pretty extensive list yet, Confucius is known to have spent time studying Chinese history when developing his philosophy, in fact, it was his quest to find those things in Chinese history that made a dynasty great and what made them fall. He sought the best ways to Govern and to rule a society. Can you imagine how hard it was in that time period to actually keep the history available for consumption? Or just to share your thoughts OutSide the Box.
Is it time to consider flipping Confucius’s quest?
Can we think OutSide the Box?
Rather than being imprisoned by government or religion how might humanity imprison them?
Confucius died believing his philosophies a failure, but his seeds grew roots and his philosophical teachings became among the world’s most prolific.
The rise and fall of the Roman empire would follow, great philosophers Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Epicureanism, came and went contemplating, debating, teaching, refining the arts of reason, exploring the depths of their ability to understand the nature of the world around them. What was their purpose? What was the best way to live, where do ethics and morality originate, and what is this place I call reality? A thousand years, no tv, no motorized transportation, no phone, no internet, just philosophical ideas shared on handwritten documents often duplicated with room for error. More than a thousand years of philosophical effort, thought, and contemplation by the greatest of thinkers. Today’s humanity is mostly ignorant of their work, too lazy to exercise their minds with such hefty thoughts.To lazy even to learn what they thought or what the importance or validity of their thought. I still will likely spend the rest of my life trying to catch up with them. For anyone reading this. I tell my own daughter Philosophize This with I; am Stephen West is an extraordinary free learning opportunity.
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Unless nature decides humanity’s too stupid to keep.
Is there a glitch in the humanities program code causing it to dump critical data? Is Humanity like AI taught to think and reason and yet with the input of garbage is garbage?
For thousands of years, governments rise and fall each demanding its citizens follow their doctrines of the faith. Greek Gods, roman rule, and the streets of Athens would give rise to sophist men who taught various artful forms of winning one’s case without any moral ethic resolve but purely to win.
Socrates himself gave his own life by presenting what’s considered the worst legal defense in history. He basically refused to abandon his principal belief in living a virtuous life. He refused to lie to the court to avoid punishment for an offense he’d not committed. Forced to drink poison for being accused a sophist, liar, and lawyer after the Oligarchs of death lost power over Rome in the age of the Thirty Tyrants of Athens. The people had not stood for the despotism of oligarchs, must we? After the tyrants, the people had little trust. Why would they?
Hundreds, thousands of Gods who never seemed to answer the people’s prayers came and went regardless of the sacrifices. From the ashes of Europe, China, Asia, India, and the Middle East rose Buddhism, Taoism, Catholicism, Hebraism, Islam, and Christianity. Diversity of faiths. For hundreds of years to follow religious wars raged as the dark ages ensued. In Europe, the reformation led to war after the war between Protestants and Catholics. From these beginnings came the ages of enlightenment and the Philosopher, antarchist, John Locke, and Montesquieu, philosopher, lawyer, politician, and author of the most authoritative contemplated treatise on the operation of Government known to America’s founding fathers. John Locke English philosopher and physician is widely regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers and is commonly known as the “Father of Liberalism“. These men lived times when the only form of education was the passing of history through the written word and the modes of transportation were challenging to say the least.
Protestants and Catholics warred in France and a relative calm settled over France despite the strife between the Catholics and the Huguenots (French Protestants), the court of Henry III was then dominated by a tolerant faction of the Politiques (moderate Catholics, sympathizers of the Protestant King of Navarre, Henry of Bourbon, who became heir apparent to the throne of France in 1584. Here in Paris, France lived Giordano Bruno an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist who proposed theories of an infinite universe with a multiplicity of worlds.
The Roman Catholic and Reformed Churches of the time were struggling to evangelization of Europe. Giordano believed Lucretius the universe was infinite, his god was infinite, and creation could be nothing less. He was excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church for his beliefs.
Bruno abandoned the Dominican order, and, after wandering in northern Italy, he went in 1578 to Geneva, where he earned his living by proofreading. He formally embraced Calvinism. After publishing a broadsheet against a Calvinist professor, however, he discovered that the Reformed church was no less intolerant than the Catholic. He was arrested, excommunicated, rehabilitated after retraction, and finally allowed to leave the city. He moved to France, first to Toulouse—where he unsuccessfully sought to be absolved by the Catholic church but was nevertheless appointed to a lectureship in philosophy—and then in 1581 to Paris.
In Paris Bruno at last found a congenial place to work and teach. Despite the strife between the Catholics and the Huguenots (French Protestants), the court of Henry III was then dominated by the tolerant faction of the Politiques. Bruno’s religious attitude was compatible with this group, and he received the protection of the French king, who appointed him one of his temporary lecteursroyaux. In 1582 Bruno published three mnemotechnical works, in which he explored new means to attain an intimate knowledge of reality. He also published a vernacular comedy, Il Candelario (1582; “The Candlemaker”), which, through a vivid representation of contemporary Neapolitan society, constituted a protest against the moral and social corruption of the time The Spaccio de la Bestia trionfante (1584; The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast), the first dialogue of his moral trilogy, is a satire on contemporary superstitions and vices, embodying a strong criticism of Christian ethics—particularly the Calvinistic principle of salvation by faith alone, to which Bruno opposes an exalted view of the dignity of all human activities. The Cabala del cavallo Pegaseo (1585; “Cabal of the Horse Pegasus”), similar to but more pessimistic than the previous work, includes a discussion of the relationship between the human soul and the universal soul, concluding with the negation of the absolute individuality of the former. In the De gli eroici furori (1585; The Heroic Frenzies), Bruno, making use of Neoplatonic imagery, treats the attainment of union with the infinite One by the human soul and exhorts man to the conquest of virtue and truth.
Can we think OutSide the Box to redefine the constructs of humanity for the conquest of virtue and truth?
January 27, 1593, Bruno entered the jail of the Roman palace of the Sant’Uffizio (Holy Office).
During the seven-year Roman period of the trial, Bruno at first developed his previous defensive line, disclaiming any particular interest in theological matters and reaffirming the philosophical character of his speculation. This distinction did not satisfy the inquisitors, who demanded an unconditional retraction of his theories. Bruno then made a desperate attempt to demonstrate that his views were not incompatible with the Christian conception of God and creation. The inquisitors rejected his arguments and pressed him for a formal retraction. Bruno finally declared that he had nothing to retract and that he did not even know what he was expected to retract. At that point, Pope Clement VIII ordered that he be sentenced as an impenitent and pertinacious heretic. On February 8, 1600, when the death sentence was formally read to him, he addressed his judges, saying:
“Perhaps your fear in passing judgment on me is greater than mine in receiving it.
Time is the father of truth, its mother is our mind.
Time takes all and gives all.”
Bruno was hung naked upside down and burned at the stake by the Church of the Day. For Thinking OutSide the Box.
In 1609 Considered the beginning of the age of enlightenment Galileo invented the telescope and proposed a Heliocentric universe causing a conflict with the Catholic Church and he was put under house arrest by the inquisition for spreading ideas in contrast with religious doctrine. Galileo’s ideas were a key role in the scientific revolution inspired by Enlightenment, where people were turning to rationalization through science and questioning the great authority the Church had in the time period.
The Thirty Years’ War ended in 1648. It led to the division of Western Christianity into different confessions (Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Anabaptist, Unitarian, etc.). By the time of its arrival, Western Christianity was only compromised in the Lands of the Bohemian Crown, where Utraquist Hussitism was officially acknowledged by both the Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor; in addition, various movements (including Lollards in England and Waldensians In Italy and France) were still being actively suppressed.
As William the Silent wrote in his marriage proposal to the uncle of his second wife, the Elector August of Saxony, he held Orange as “my own free property”, not as a fief of any suzerain; neither the Pope, nor the Kings of Spain or France. That historical position of honor and reputation would later drive William the Silent forward, as much as it also fueled the opposition of his great-grandson William III to Louis XIV, when that king invaded and occupied Orange.
The last descendant of the original princes, René of Châlon, left the principality to his cousin William the Silent, who was not a descendant of the original Orange family but the heir to the principality of Orange by testament, however in violation of the inheritance pattern enacted by the last will of Marie des Baux, the Princess of Orange through kinship to whom Prince René derived his own right thereto.
Louis XIV of France began his personal rule of France in 1661, after the death of his chief minister, the Italian Cardinal Mazarin.An adherent of the concept of the divine right of kings, which advocates the divine origin of monarchical rule, Louis continued his predecessors’ work of creating a centralized state governed by the capital. He sought to eliminate the remnants of feudalism persisting in parts of France and, by compelling many members of the nobility to inhabit his lavish Palace of Versailles, succeeded in pacifying the aristocracy, many members of which had participated in the Fronde rebellion during Louis’ minority. By these means, he became one of the most powerful French monarchs and consolidated a system of absolute monarchical rule in France that endured until the French Revolution. History never repeats but always rhymes.
Louis encouraged and benefited from the work of the prominent political, military, and cultural figures such as Mazarin, Colbert, Louvois, the Grand Condé, Turenne, Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban, André Charles Boulle, Molière, Racine, Boileau, La Fontaine, Lully, Marais, Le Brun, Rigaud, Bossuet, Le Vau, Mansart, Charles, Claude Perrault, and Le Nôtre.
During Louis’ reign, France was the leading European power, and it fought three major wars: the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession. There were also two lesser conflicts: the War of Devolution and the War of the Reunions. Warfare defined the foreign policy of Louis XIV, and his personality shaped his approach. Impelled “by a mix of commerce, revenge, and pique”, Louis sensed that warfare was the ideal way to enhance his glory. In peacetime, he concentrated on preparing for the next war. He taught his diplomats that their job was to create tactical and strategic advantages for the French military. Were the views of the Catholic Church of France the same?
In 1673, Louis XIV of France annexed all territory of the principality to France and to the royal domain, as part of the war actions against the stadtholder William III of Orange — who later became King William III of Great Britain. Orange ceased to exist as a sovereign realm, de facto. And my ancestors were banished from the land they’d held for over a thousand years on the Rhone the AOC of St Julien. The loss of these lands by Pérrié De St Julien I De Malacare is documented in parliamentary records of England in his petitions for funds for protestant french Huguenots to travel to America. See St Julien De Malacare in the History of Huguenot Pedigree.
This is the history in which my ancestral roots run deep David DeCros St Julian was born in 1605 in Béziers, Herault, Languedoc-Roussillon, France. David had a son Pierre de St Julien De Malacare I formerly St Julian aka Julien born 1641 in Vitré, Ille-et-Vilaine, Bretagne, France Pierre’s wife Jeanne (LeFebre) de St. Julien gave birth to twin sons in 1669. Pierre lived in fear under the rule of Louis the XIV for his progeny named his sons Pierre Renee De St. Julien I 1 & 2 The birth record reflects a single son But twins who would carry the same name, known only to close friends and family they were René and Piérré. Rene and Pierre had an older sister Aimee de St. Julian; born 3, 7, 1667 Charlotte Ravenel; born 5,15,1668 a younger brother Louis de St. Julian; Born 08,5,1670 sister Marguerite de St. Julian; Born 12,19,1671 younger brother Paul de St. Julian; Born 10,14.1673 and sisters Emilie de St. Julian; Born 1, 10,1675 Jeanne Renee de St. Julian Born 5,6, 1678 and Marie Ester de St. Julien Born 12,14,1679.
In April of 1680, the ship Richmond arrived in Charleston SC with 45 French Protestants (Huguenots) aboard. This needs further verification because for centuries now the truth has been hidden by numerous facts,
- Piérré De St Julien De Malacare I. Did not travel on the Richmond, today’s historical records show unequivocally he traveled to the UK with William of Orange, his wife, and several children to live in Ireland.
- Piérre [Rene] actually Piérre De St Julien De Malacare II was on the Richmond with his wife, his brother Louis and Sister Marguerite, Four St Juliens. Piérré’s buried and his will is recorded in Charleston SC in French.
- Rene De St Julien De Malacare Piérré’s twin brother René Petit was also not on the Richmond and traveled to the UK with William II to lead dragoons in the Glorious Revolution and the Battle of Boyne.
- Fore centuries now people have wondered what happened to Rene Petit and Piérré Fore and have never concluded who they really were.
- On the Ships Manifest, In the Petitions to England’s Parliament, see Royale Gem Of Malacare. The identities of these Individuals were obscured. See the Manifest. Piérré, His Wife, and a Friend are listed as his friend, his friend, and also his friend. Their names are not listed. More research is needed but I believe Piérré’s twin brother Réné filed the petitions with parliament, booked himself on the Richmond, his Brother Piérré, and his wife. But, he did not make the voyage that is verifiable in the annals of history. This was all done to keep their whereabouts from being known by Louis XIV, Catholic Churches, and the Reformed Churches of the time. Piérré De St Julien was a descendant of Piérré De St Julien friend of the apostle Peter where together they were fisherman in youth on the Rhone.
In 1685 under the rule of Louis XIV of France the Edict of Nantes, which granted rights to Huguenots, was abolished. The revocation effectively forced Huguenots to emigrate or convert in a wave of dragonnades, which managed to virtually destroy the French Protestant minority divesting French Protestants of all religious and political prerogatives. The English were happy to encourage these refugees to settle in the colonies, most of whom were representative of France’s prosperous merchant and professional classes. More refugees followed, and in 1687, a church was built on what is now the corner of Church St. and Queen St. in downtown Charleston. About four hundred and fifty Huguenots had settled in the Low Country of South Carolina by 1700.
In 1679 Pierre a presbyterian minister and his wife Jeanne and their children all fled France through the Netherlands. From France Charlotte, Pierre II, Louis, and Marguerite set sail for America landing in Charleston South Carolina, Pierre de St Julien De Malacare I and their siblings are contained in the list known as the “St: Julien” or “Ravenel” list. This is a list of French and Swiss refugees in Carolina who desired to be naturalized. Its date by comparison of names with births has been fixed at about 1696. It was found among the papers of Henry de St: Julien of St Johns Berkley who died in 1768 or 1769 and was the youngest son of Pierre de St: Julien mentioned in the list. His papers came into the possession of M’. Daniel Ravenel of Wantoot and the list was first published in 1822 in the Southern Intelligencer a paper published in Charleston. It was re-published in 1867 and again in pamphlet form by T. Gaillard Thomas M. D. in 1888; and in 1897 in the Transactions of the Huguenot Society of S. C. These same documents list Marie, Charles Fromagett as Pierre’s wife at the time he purchased transportation for what is believed to be 27 individuals aboard the Richmond which arrived in Charleston SC in the fall of 1680. These documents have inconsistencies that are explainable with the truth.
I have discovered the Analysis of the names of these individuals is inaccurate and has been misunderstood by historians all these years. While others may have figured this out I’ve found no indication that’s the case. So for posterity, I wish to explain why I believe their analysis was seriously flawed. I don’t have time now to work on analyzing the correct numbers. But I will explain to those who might pursue it why I claim the current analysis is flawed. First historians have not accepted that individuals on the Richmond were French it is stated in the record that while they believed that to be true they did not have solid information on which to establish that fact. The internet and ancestral records verify that in fact my ancestor Piérré and his family were all in fact French Huguenots fleeing the persecution of Louis XIV of France.
The Richmond’s travel to America is known to have been Commissioned and is documented to have been chartered by Rene Petit and Jacob Guerard. The number of Individuals on the Richmond is extrapolated as stated by the South Carolina Historical Society as follows:
“Considering the connection between the names of Guerard and Petit with the immigrants on the Richmond, and the apparent coincidence of the dates of arrival of the other names mentioned with the probable date of arrival of the Richmond, the names mentioned are as close as the writer has been able to get to the probable names of the French Protestant passengers on that vessel.”
So while there are many mistakes in the analysis. This is the first and perhaps largest. Guérard and Petit are not family names they’re French words. Guérard is actually spelled Guérard and is a French commune in Northcentral France. The word means “not in accordance with philosophic knowledge or methods an unphilosophic judgment” Parliamentary England details confirm the funds for the Richmond and the land grants were secured by William II.
” The letter of the Proprietors to lay out 4000 acres to Jacob Guerard which went by the Richmond was dated 17 Deer 1679″
Petit actually Pétit is actually French for Small and I believe was a reference for the petitioners of land grants. I also believe for various reasons that 17 Deer is not a date at all but a reference to 17 individuals from the Comtat Venaissin an enclave in the Kingdom of France which included the town of Orange and Avignon and was known as the Principality of Orange. The Enclave had been bequeathed to the Holy See in 1271. The enclave inhabitants did not pay taxes and were not subject to military service, making life in the Comtat considerably more attractive than under the French Crown.1. When Louis XIV, invaded and occupied the Principality of Orange. Perrie, Renee St Julien a Protestant minister in the province of Orange and owner of St Juliens in the province of Orange between Orange and Avignon on the Rhone river at a junction known as Guérard. Protestants including William of Orange fled the rule of Louis XIV and sought refuge in the Guérard commune in the northeast of France just outside Paris. They fought their last battle in August 1678 at the battle of St Denis.
The Richmond set sail from? England or Netherlands October 29, 1679.
Arrived in South Carolina and the First of Issue of land as instructed by William II were made in South Carolina on August 5, 1680.
According to the South Carolina Historical And Genealogical Magazine published by the South Carolina Historical Society Charleston S.C January 1917. In December of 1686, Pierre purchased the Punkin Hill Plantation
“which included the French Settlement which gave for a time to the adjoining vicinity the name of Orange or French Quarter.”
The Plantation adjoins the land on which the Episcopal Chapel “St. Thomas’ parish now stands known as the “Ponkinhill “Chapel. Pierre de St Julien I and his wife Jeanne (LeFebre) de St. Julien along with Aimee and the younger children Paul, Emilie, Jeanne, and Marie.
I believe I’m descendant of Peter St Julien, “Pope Clement I“ neither St Julien nor Clementine, are pious fiction. I’m a Protestant, Huguenot, Apostle PIerre cousin of William keeper of the Parish of St Denis in the Holy See in the Commune St Julien keeper Guérard.

“Fahy says farmers are facing more stress now than they have since the farming crisis of the 1980s, when hundreds of farms were auctioned on the courthouse steps across the country each month and thousands of farmers faced financial ruin. “ Their dad killed himself on the farm where he was born. They hope his story will save others. Story by Jessica Ravitz CNN August 21, 2018
The farm crisis of the 1980s’ occurred because of the gross negligent management of government policies and regulations by Congress as detailed in the USDA publication “A Time to Choose” 1980 by Robert Bergland.
Ronald Regan upon assuming the presidency chose corporate mega farming over rural small and mid size farms. He promoted global trade effectively outsourcing much of farming to Africa, Mexico, and Chile and placing local production into the hands of large corporate players like Cargill, Tyson, Dole, etc. Farm credit agencies got swamped in bad loans as USDA/FSA personnel had flooded the market with sub prime farm loans under the false assumptions more production the better, the bigger the better, Farms need more equipment to increase production and yield. Farms need to get bigger to improve economies of scale. Or where they intentionally using government funds to create an intentional bubble profiting on the rise, sucking up the assets on the fall, and profiting on resale of ill gotten real estate.
When public and private funding vaporized farmers turned to the lender of last resort the USDA.
USDA personnel were holding that loaded gun aimed at farmers seeking credit and had zero training on the use of that gun. Were completely uneducated in its use and then Regan reduces credit availability by 23% in every state killing hundreds of thousands of small & midsize farmers. This wasn’t just killing available credit Reagan wanted a 23% reduction in outstanding loan dollars. And FmHa responded with robo foreclosures the Courts found in violation of the Constitution.
Congress, Bush, and Clinton set out to clean up Congresses mess by eliminating accountability for their complete incompetence in the management of farm policy trade, regulations, and the USDA. Congress and Clinton institutionalized a criminal and unconstitutional racket pinned to deference and aided by the US Judiciary to avoid any future accountability for negligence, fraud, discrimination, or just outright criminal behaviors by USDA personnel. An un accountable government agency armed with a a loaded gun their not trained to use while their victims are bated into the traps government continues to create.
The Federal Judiciary told Congress to pass the Separation of Powers restoration act to fix Governments gross criminal and unconstitutional denial of Due Process. Justice Scalia, Thomas, and Roberts in case briefs and Scalia in public statements made it known the Supreme Court would look at reversing the doctrine of deference because its unconstitutional and extremely abused by Government and the Federal Judiciary. See Whitman v. United States, 574 U.S. ___ (November 10, 2014). Scalia “ I doubt the Government’s pretensions to deference. They collide with the norm that legislatures, not executive officers, define crimes. When King James I tried to create new crimes by royal command, the judges responded that “the King cannot create any offense by his prohibition or proclamation, which was not an offense before.” James I, however, did not have the benefit of Chevron deference. With deference to agency interpretations of statutory provisions to which criminal prohibitions are attached, federal administrators can in effect create (and uncreate) new crimes at will, so long as they do not roam beyond ambiguities that the laws contain [internal citations omitted]”
Justices Scalia and Thomas Amenable to Reexamining Deference to SEC Statutory Interpretations
Perez v. Mortgage Bankers association No . 13-1041 December 1, 2014 – Decided March 9, 2015.
“judicial deference to agency interpretive rules cannot be squared with the constitutional structures of separation of powers, and checks and balances.”[Emphasis added]
Update 9-17-18 SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES UNITED STUDENT AID FUNDS, INC. v. BRYANA BIBLE May 16, 2016 Scoutus deny’s challenge to Auer deference on Constitutionality. Read this and you will find members of the Supreme Court admitting there Co-Conspirators with Government Agencies in war on the Constitutional rights of Due Process and Equal Justice.Do I need a jury trial to convict them of Treason when they have admitted guilt? Here is another more recent statement of the same thing. How many years will the public allow tyranny? Thomas and Gorsuch
Justice Scalia suffered a mysterious circumstantial death February 13, 2016 just as an excellent case to address deference was in the Federal Circuit. ”MINE” Justice Kavanugh gave a deference dog whistle speech outlining his concurrence with Scalia’s views on the subject June 2, 2016. In march of 2017 at the Confirmation hearings of Neil Gorsuch Senator Al Franken expresses the democrats objections to the reversal of deference.
Congress knows and has known they are criminally and unconstitutionally abusing deference. See history on Separation of Powers restoration Act. The Federal Judiciary has known and knows Government agencies are criminally and unconstitutionally abusing deference. See the cases referenced above. The Federal Judiciary has an absolutely abysmal record of providing Due Process. Congress is never removing judges in what looks like a quid pro quo. It all stinks of a Government warring against providing Due Process as the Constitution requires as they kill off more and more farmers like me with Treason. Who is master, who is slave?

Re: Racketeering by the US Government!
Dear Mr. President,
First it’s often stated fact this country is founded on the rule of law. However, it’s rarely, if ever stated the rule law governs this nation, as it has become increasingly corrupt.
The rule of law states no man may sit in judgment of his own case. As an individual harmed by criminal conspiracies of the US Government, it is my allegation and assertion all branches of the US Government have conspired in an act of treason on the Constitution, the American people, and especially Americas farmers.
Thomas Jefferson said: “ I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” His sentiment was echoed often by founding fathers.
My allegation asserts all branches of the US Government have conspired including the U.S. Federal Judiciary, the Legislature, and the Executive branches most notably of the USDA.
You have publically stated numerous times as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has the intent to uphold the laws of this country and you both took the oath of office to uphold supreme law the Constitution.
Consequently, I demand for the benefit of the public good, the US Government founded on the rule of law, abide by the rule of law, and stand trial before a jury of US citizens for treason. Furthermore, I request trial be presided over by an impartial judge from an international court.
I do not want to see some blatant obfuscating form letter response but a direct, specific, and reasoned reply to my petition to which I have a right under the first and fourteenth amendments to the Constitution.
Thank you Mr. President for your time and your service. I look forward to hearing from you.

Update 10-10-2018 The UN has indicated willingness to hear such a case against the US. Government. See the Opt-In Press release here.
Chief Justice John Roberts,
Justice Louis Brandeis known as the people’s judge said “Decency, security and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the rules of conduct that command to the citizen” No man is above the law so the confirmation hearings say.
Today Executive branches of the U.S. government are running criminal enterprises in violation of Federal laws, federal antitrust laws, and the Constitution. Three times I previously brought this matter to the attention of then-President Barack Obama. Please refer to the correspondence which can be found on this blog. None of the communications was ever addressed.
Congress approved the implementation of these enterprises in violation of the Constitution and their oaths of office. Consequently, they do not want their despicable deeds exposed. I have multiple times by mail and phone requested Congressman Morgan Griffth the opportunity to address Congress regarding this matter. No request was ever acknowledged. You may also refer to the written correspondence evidenced in this blog.
These enterprises are specifically designed for the obstruction of justice, deny due process, deny equal protection, and deny fair hearings. These procedures are an absolute abysmal affront to Due Process, American values, and the Constitution.
Three times I’ve brought these allegations into Federal Courts with the filing of Civil Lawsuits. For Five years Government has refused to allow a fair hearing on these matters. Each is dismissed by corrupt federal officials who’ve used lies, deceit, deception, and downright criminal acts to subvert these allegations. Enough is Enough as Clarence Thomas Said When Anita Hill lied, I purpose to aid the treason afoot.
If anyone has any doubts Federal Judges lied about material evidence against the USDA’s racketeering enterprise to aid, abet, and protect the Governments treason, I respectfully request you look at the evidence presented in another post on this blog, Here is a list of post to start with: Please leave your opinion in the comments.
If you want to know about the implementation of this criminal enterprise and the treason that created it. You can read about that here.
And don’t forget to check out other links to evidence.
The Federal Judiciary is aiding, abetting, and protecting these criminal enterprises and even gifting them with the ability to write new laws at will avoiding accountability for criminal and civil violations of Federal law against the people they’re supposed to serve. See the Statements of the Supreme Court on deference made over the last five years in the Court’s rulings. See the Separation of powers Restoration Act which implements the recommendations Justice Antonin Scalia made to congress to eliminate the treason afoot by Government Agencies many years ago.
These acts Sir are in violation of the government’s contractual obligation to operate legally and within the law. These acts are a complete and utterly criminal violation of the Constitution’s intent for the separation of powers. These acts Sir have the Government warring against the Constitution and against the American people. These acts Sir, are acts of treason as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
As you should now beware, Sir, this criminal, unAmerican, and unconstitutional allegations, allege a criminal conspiracy of wrongdoing by every branch of the US Government. It’s a tenant of the rule of law that no man may preside over his own case. I, therefore, submit that this case must be heard against the US Government by a Jury of the American people and its criminal operations must be stopped.
The rule of law states: The Law should govern a nation as opposed to being governed by the arbitrary decisions of individual government officials. The Judiciary has repeatedly corruptly, maliciously, relied solely on arbitrary decisions of corrupt Government officials in the judiciary aiding, abetting, and protecting the Government’s criminal and unconstitutional RICO enterprises. They’re guilty of Treason by conspiring, aiding, and abetting domestic enemies of the Constitution and the American people.
This country is founded on the rule of law. If it’s to be governed by the rule of law then All branches of Government must stand trial as defendants and defend themselves before a jury of unbiased civilian jurists.
To Quote Thomas Jefferson:
“Trial by jury is the only anchor yet ever imagined by man, which can hold a government accountable to the principles of its constitution.”
John Adams called trial by Jury:
“the heart of liberty.”
James Madison said:
“Trial by jury in civil cases is as essential to secure the liberty of the people as any one of the pre-existent rights of nature”
As Justice Brandeis said:
“A government of laws will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. If a government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law; it invites every man to come a law unto himself. It invites anarchy.”
The prophecy of Elbridge Gerry declining to sign the Constitution and the warnings of Thomas Jefferson in 1820 are proven accurate.
How Sir can I, can any of us, have anything but contempt for a judiciary that’s aiding, abetting, and protecting illegal and unconstitutional operations of the people’s government? How should I, or any of us, not have contempt for a Government operating above the law and against justice for its people? The American people cannot address Government Corruption in Corrupted Courts under their control. The people should awaken to the fact corruption permeates the Judiciary and it should no longer be allowed to Judge itself by dismissing facts.
This petition is made pursuant to the First Amendment to the Constitution the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The Government is not entitled to immunity in this matter because its sovereignty cannot supersede the Government’s agency requirements as defined, by the Constitution, by the Contract, which gave rise to the existence of the Government, a contract that requires Government to operate legally and within the law.
I cite and incorporate for reference and submit as evidence the Judiciary is criminally corrupting all procedural records of filings, and appeals, including the appeal to the supreme court, writs, the dockets, and all supporting documentation, including the actual dockets for the following cases.: 4:13-cv-0054, 1-15-1544C, and 3-16-cv-173. That is, an honest factual assessment of all filings in these cases will suffice to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the Government is guilty of treason.
The courts are thus aware of the evidence against them and the allegations of the criminal enterprises as complained of in the aforementioned cases. They may not preside over nor dismiss a case against them without a proper and fair hearing. Since the complaint alleges criminal wrongdoing and conspiracy by the judiciary, including the willful intent to obstruct justice. The judiciary has neither the right nor the Authority to dismiss this case. Plaintiff demands the US Government including the Judiciary stand trial for TREASON! Before a Jury of American Citizens.
Failure of the Judiciary to defend itself before a Jury is admission this country is no longer founded or governed by the rule of law but is in fact under the rule of a Criminal enterprise of despots and traitors.
Please readers watch this Facebook post its all related to the Treason I’ve been fighting.
The Traitor Federal District Court Judge Jackson L. Kiser is now railroading another case. This one a young man who’s fighting to prove his innocence and having his every effort to gain access to the evidence to exonerate him criminally obstructed. See:
No one in a Republic is above the law, above the supreme law; not even the judiciary!
Christopher B. Julian Pro Se.
For years now I’ve been fighting for my life because of Dodd Frank legislation. Dodd Frank made it illegal for me to obtain a mortgage on a farm and business under development, I already owned outright and debt free! The USDA then denied me a farm loan to keep my farming operation in business, expand it, and continue development because my house was too big. My 100% equity was effectively ineligible for leverage. Contrast that with the Financial institutions that brought the house down while they were leveraged as much as 70 to 1.
Today I had a discussion about my issues with it on twitter, that along with many other impetus of the moment, bring me to wana share the lost opportunities Dodd Frank is currently causing my family and friends. The featured Image on this page is a graph of the Sub Prime bubble Wall Street created igniting Dodd Frank Legislation. Note: they grew sub-prime lending 600% and Securitization of them 900% leading up to the Financial Collapse.
First you need to know a little about who I am and what I’ve done in my life. At ten thousand feet look at my about cbjulian page, but, for this blog post, I want you to know these things.
First My mother was a construction bookkeeper I grew up working on construction sites. My brother is a builder, realtor, real estate broker. My brother in law is a builder. I grew up surrounded by construction. From 1972 to 1987 as I worked my way through college and an accounting degree. I worked all kinds of jobs mainly in construction, but also as a commercial fisherman in Alaska. I’ve worked on and run framing crews. Electrician crews, trim crews, done plumbing, hung sheet rock, painted, laid brick , hardwood floors, and tile, installed cabinets and appliances and farmed an Apple Orchard.
Second I’m no dummy – I’d never, have survived more than 15 years in finance and finance technology services at Bank Of America from 1987 – 2004, if hadn’t some basic skills. In support of this below you’ll find a link to my resume and two links to some of the recognition I received while working at Bank Of America. Please note my career progression at Bank of America.
Third From 1995 to 1996 I built the house pictured in this slide show with funding from BB&T after I had purchased the lot. I worked my butt off that year every night, weekend and holiday on this house trying to do as much of the work as I possibly could myself. It liked to kill me. As you look at the slides realize when I moved in in 1996 the house was just over 1900 square feet with a 900 square foot unfinished basement. It had two bedrooms 1 and half baths. While building it the city inspectors knew by the way it was being constructed I intended to add on.
Fourth From 1996 until 2006 when I sold the house I worked on improvements and additions until I finished the vision I had for this house. When finished it was a little over 3800 square feet with a 900 square foot finished basement. It had 4 bedrooms 3 and half baths with a built in steam shower and a huge bonus room with giant walk in closet.
Fifth I won’t get into the numbers and I don’t consider my time cost working on this house but I made a very nice profit on it. While you look at the slide show I want you to know: I laid all of the hardwood floors in this house, My wife and I did all the wood work and built all the porches on this house. I personally finished 2 baths including the steam shower work all myself. I framed, wired, insulated, hung sheet rock, finished sheet rock, did all custom trim work, painted, and hung all the fixtures in every other addition in this house. I did all the work except where I had someone install carpet.
Sixth in 2007 I bought with proceeds from the sale of the house above an old 23 Acre Apple Orchard on the side of a mountain with some very nice Piedmont views. The Land was ideal for a vineyard, ideal for starting a hard apple cider business and has many profit opportunities, I like to keep close to my vest although, your welcome some other time to look at the Business plan for this property.
Seven from 2007 until 2012 I spent my days on the development of this farm, putting life back into the Apples for future hard apple cider making, prepping the land and resources for a future vineyard and eventually wine production. Construction of a main residence designed to support numerous business potentials. Like a basement that would support being a small winery for start up and could and would later become a quest rental and even eventually our main living quarters. Below is a slide show on that property again keep in mind I ran the farming operation and I taught two farm hands everything they needed to know to help me with all the home construction you see done in these photos.
Eight in june of 2006 at the young age of 46 my wife and I became first time parents. While I’m usually behind the camera taking pictures here a few of me at work.
Nine in 1996 in addition to the house at 454 Hunter Lane, I also took an equity stake in a duplex, 8910 Sharonbrook drive. I took out a small private 10 year loan on this property for a 1/3 stake. I did this to help my mother have control over the property, as she bought the other side 8908 Sharonbrook drive for her personal residence.
Ten the five years I worked putting the Apple Orchard back in business and prepping the land for planting of a vineyard and construction on the house all got stopped when my personal funding ran out. Dodd Frank made it illegal for me to have a mortgage on that property without also having a full time job. I thought I had a full time job to farm the orchard, plant the vineyard, finish the house construction, and get the business operational. However, Dodd Frank prevents an individual such as myself from using mortgage proceeds to pay myself to work while I make capital improvements to the assets I’m borrowing against. For numerous financial reasons and advantages this is pure financial ignorance on the part of Government. Or is it actually a Deep State effort to control land use? Think about it ; its like saying if you put money in this bank you can’t draw it out unless you have a job to make payments. Actually its worse cause the value of money in the bank is pure perception it could become worthless overnight as opposed to land, diamonds, gold or oil.
Think about it for a minute why do we have front yard mechanics? If you could frame your own house, plumb it, wire it, sheet rock it, trim it, paint it, why would you want to pay anyone other than yourself to do that work, especially if you needed the work? If you could plant a vineyard yourself why would you take a job so you could pay someone else twice what you’d pay yourself? If in the end the asset is worth the same no matter who actually makes the capital improvements then you’re building sweat equity to do the job yourself. Dodd Frank wars against sweat equity! Thanks Dodd Frank!
Now lets look at that duplex and how Dodd Frank is killing opportunity for my family and friends and waring against my creation of sweat equity.
My mother passed away and now my brother and I are forced to sell the Duplex because I’m unable to find a good job. You can be sure my court battles against Wall Street, and the U.S Government are playing a major role in keeping me from gainful employment.
The Duplex is currently under contract for $237,000.00 and while I live in one side the other is rented to tenants who’ve lived there since 1996. When the contract closes we may all have to move disrupting all our lives which none of us want.
Since I have a significant equity stake in this property I could literally buy the duplex from my brother and mothers estate for $175,000.00. I could, using equity pay myself $50,000.00 over the next year to rehab the duplex and with rent afford the loan payments. New siding, new heat and air, interior and exterior painting etc. Now at the end of another year you think I could get another contract on the duplex? One at least as much as the one it’s currently under, or maybe with these improvements even more? Wouldn’t that be a better outcome for the people who’s lives are about to be disrupted and uprooted? Remember the renters have lived here over 20 years, don’t want to move, or were they’ll go. Thanks Dodd Frank!
In another year My wife or I might find good jobs, We might be able to sell the farm, we might win the lawsuit against Wall Street, although given Federal Court corruption thats not likely. We might move out and rent both sides to cover the mortgage payments. Can you be certain tomorrow you’ll have a job and be able to afford your mortgage payments. How long would your equity support you?
I’ve tried every way I know to secure financing to do just that, but Dodd Frank regulations prevent it. Hard Money lenders can’t help either because, Dodd Frank rules prevent investor properties from being owner occupied. Thats dumb too. If you’re a contractor its much easier to work on a place you’re living in. And an owner, tenet with equity at stake has a vested interest in improving the assets value as much as possible.
Below is a slide show of the Duplex. I leave you with the statement and the facts I’m happy to debate at anytime! Dodd Franks rules are stupid, inappropriate, a hinderance to capital appreciation, small business development, and personal wealth creation,
Dodd Frank Sucks!
