We all have been told that ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking the law. Does the same go for Law Enforcement and the Courts? This writer presumes that his working knowledge of the statutes of the State he resides in is sufficient to inform himself of the rules, but is it?

To allow the reader to experience this thought process a little more up close and personal, this writer invites the reader to engage in this little exercise:

Read Minnesota Statute 169.91. You may read the thumbnail on the video, view the video or follow this link to read the Statute by clicking on this link to 169.91. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=169.91

Now you are all set to go about your business in the world, knowing that if you are ever arrested for a driving offense and any of the listed conditions apply to the situation, you can demand to be immediately taken before a Judge.

Years later, after an 10 hour day at work and then a few hours doing volunteer work for something called the Family Innocence Project, you begin the drive home. You are tired and irritable.

A block from your house, the cherries come on behind you and you are pulled over by a police officer.

The officer says there is the odor of a alcoholic beverage emanating from your vehicle. Though you have not been drinking, the next thing you know you are arrested, in handcuffs and at the police station. You are tired, irritable, outraged and want to exercise your rights. You want to document the cause of your outrage. You recall Minnesota Statute 169.91. You demand to see a judge immediately. You tell them you will take the breath test in front of a judge. You want to document before a Judge on the record exactly what has transpired. You are asserting your rights as a Minnesotan.

The police release you and charge you with DWI and refusing the breath test.

At the trial, the Judge orders that you can’t show the Jury Minnesota Statute 169.91 and further, that the judge is going to tell the jury you had no right to immediately see a magistrate. Do you think you got a fair trial or was the trial fixed against you from the beginning.

This Engineering of the Verdict is what happened to Michelle MacDonald, Candidate for Minnesota Supreme Court at her recent trial. The jury returned its Verdict Wednesday, September 18, 2014 never hearing of Minnesota Statute 169.91 and being told by the Judge that Michelle MacDonald had no such right. Sound fair to you? And, for the more familiar with the Courts, does that sound like the Rule of Law, Due Process and Impartiality?

In the past, this writer has used the term “Simulated Litigation” to describe these corrupt activities of the Courts Michelle MacDonald has and is experiencing. In expanding his knowledge of the Abuse of Power by our courts, this writer found overlap with the philosophy of the Progressive Educated Elites. In particular, This writer is interested and appalled by their concept of “Engineered Consent” We will expand on this concept later in this article, but for now suffice it to say that Progressive Educated Elites believe they have the right to manage and manipulate the masses in such a way to Engineer their consent. Hence, this writer has begun using the terms “Engineered Verdicts” and “Simulated Litigation” interchangeably until he fully transitions to the Progressive vernacular.

For the reader to understand more fully this writer’s perspective on these events, it is necessary to give the reader some background and outline the true nature of government. To begin with, let us briefly remind ourselves of the transition from liberty to tyranny that has been occurring in our country. Those of us familiar with the Judicial TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform) movement are not surprised at the actions of the court in this matter. Unfortunately, most of America is not aware of the Abuse of Power and corruption occurring within our Judiciary. Our Main Stream Media no longer acts to hold government transparent and accountable, but rather acts to censor news like this and aid and abet our government in the proliferation of Propaganda. And as a result, the perspective of reality of most Americans regarding their government is out of sync with the true nature of our government. This writer wagers that this is the only place where you will hear the truest version of what transpired. (And for that reason, this writer encourages you to forward this article by whatever means is most convenient to you; email, Twitter, Facebook and any other social media you use.)

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

James Madison

In the early 2000’s the internet began reaching a large numbers of Americans. In Minnesota, this allowed person who had experience the systemic corruption of the Minnesota Courts to begin contacting each other, comparing experiences and organizing for reform. Since 2005 a loose association of hundreds of Minnesotan citizens and organizations have sought reform of the Minnesota Judiciary. Every year since 2005, we have attempted to exercise our Natural Right to Petition the Government for redress of Grievances without fear of punishment or retaliation as reduced to writing in the First Amendment. Every year since 2005, the Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees have refused to give us hundreds of Minnesotans a hearing dedicated to receiving evidence and testimony of corruption in the Minnesota Courts. This writer challenges you to ask yourself, “How can the Government deny hundreds of Minnesotans such a hearing for coming on ten years now?” Clearly there is an active intent of our Minnesota Government to repress the Truth about the Minnesota Judiciary.

Proposed Election 2012 caucus resolutions 4 judicial reform 1of2

Proposed Election2012 caucus resolutions4judicial reform 2/2

In fact, you will find there is something even more sinister about Minnesota Government’s refusal of hearing evidence and testimony about Abuse of Power and corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary. Absent our testimony, there is little to no evidence of the systemic corruption of the Minnesota Judiciary on the official Record of the Legislature. And just like the Jury could only reach its verdict with the evidence presented on the official Court record, the Legislature only concerns itself with evidence and testimony on the official record of the Legislature. Building on that, the Minnesota Legislature and Judiciary have pronounced that little to no corruption exists in the Minnesota judiciary. What’s more, our Judges and Legislature are advocating taking away your right to vote for Minnesota Judges in full, fair and free elections as prescribed by the Minnesota Constitution, as the only to maintain the integrity and honesty of the Minnesota Judiciary. All of this built on the false premise that there is little to no corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary because they refuse to let hundreds of us testify on the record.

This writer asserts to you that the explanation of these behaviors of our Government, Judges and elected officials is revealed by studying the philosophy of Progressivism. Progressive Educated Elites believe that they are superior to the masses and that the masses cannot be trusted with the Democratic Process. Therefore, Progressive Educated Elites believe they have the right to Engineer Consent (aka “Lie”) the masses to get the masses to act or vote in the way that the Progressive Educated Elites believe is best. (Because the Progressive Educated Elites deign to believe the masses aren’t smart enough to know what’s good for them).

Now if you are overwhelmed by this thought and doubting of the existence of such an evil belief system, this writer offers you two sets of references. First, this writer has written extensively about the Progressivism and Progressive Educated Elites. Here are some of those writings and they included a list of references this writer relied upon in exposing the Progressive Movement.

Is Progressive political correct for the Divine Right of Kings?

Is Progressive political correct for the Divine Right of Kings 2/3?

Is Progressive political correct for the Divine Right of Kings 3/3?

The second reference is by persons unknown to this writer. This writer viewed these references only after writer the foregoing articles.

You can hear the Progressive Educated Elite reasoning from a different perspective in Video 6 of these six videos (This writer includes all six for those who want a broader perspective of the Progressive Educated Elites thought process)

Propaganda in US-History of Public Relations>Freud& Progressives

Propaganda in America - Meet Progressive Edward Bernays Father of Public Relations

Propaganda in America - The Art of Public Relations (PR) Spin (3of6)

Propaganda in America - Hitler's Ideological Beast (4of6)

Propaganda in America-FDR's NEW DEAL inspires NAZI Goebbels>Business v Politicians 5/6

Propaganda in America-Enemy Within - Are the Masses rational or Irrational? Engineering Consent

You can view the following video for a perspective more specific to "Engineering Consent" here:The Engineering of Consent


From these two references, the reader now has the ability to make sense out of what is happening in our country. Our government simply feels the masses cannot be trusted with the Democratic Process and, therefore, the government has the right to manipulate the masses and Engineer their consent. Our government is using Progressive Edward Bernays Emotion and Based-Instinct exploiting style of Propaganda to achieve the goals.

Over the past five years or so, Americans have sensed a change for the worse in the way American Government functions. Some have called it “trampling the Constitution”, others call it “erosion of liberty” and still others refer to a need to take back the country. Unfortunately, no clear course of action has arisen. Some people are unaware of these changes for the worse. Others are aware to some extent, but prefer to “Go Along to Get Along”(GAGA). All fear retaliation from the government. And the election process has been.....

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine. I, Don Mashak, seek no leadership role. I, Don Mashak, seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!

  • Good post Don, Good article.

    This shows even more the importance of restoring the Constitution and the People's Common Law.

    Unfortunately these Progressive Educated Elites are also engineering our elections and the results of those elections.

    As more and more time goes by and as we learn more about cases like these the ultimate solution becomes more and more clear.

    We must either restore America to it's Constitutional roots, or learn to bow down and kiss the boots of an oppressive out of control tyrannical government.

    For me, I know what the answer will be. I have long since given up the idea of dyeing of old age in my sleep.

"Survival is all about being able to find food, shelter, and how to fight back.Remember Sun ZU said an Army moves on it's stomach. Which means in order to fight when you get there you have to  be able too.And a starving Army wont put up much of a fight.
