July 26, 2015 ~ People of the state of Michigan -
Fraudulent Administrative Orders of Chief Judge Paul Chamberlain - Isabella County Michigan

Paul Chamberlain has created Administrative Orders in Isabella county and he is authorized to do this ONLY for the internal administration of the court in Isabella county. Before these Administrative Orders can be enforced however, they need to be submitted to and approved by the Michigan Supreme Court.

Administrative Order 2008-2, created by Paul Chamberlain, completely blocks the people's ability to obtain the court recorded audio and video. Violating the Freedom of Information Act.

Administrative Order 2015-2, also created by Paul Chamberlain, completely blocks the people of Michigan from recording for themselves, all proceedings taking place in our courtrooms. Intentionally blocking, infringing, abridging and barring the 1st Amendment, among other things.

Neither of these administrative orders created solely by Paul Chamberlain have been submitted and approved by the Michigan Supreme Court for approval.

Not only is Paul Chamberlain violating his Oath as a judge, he is intentionally subverting (undermining) the authority of county government in Isabella County while inciting sedition and insurrection. Our Chief Judge in Isabella County Michigan is participating in and advocating for the overthrow of government which is a federal crime under Title 18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government

Paul Chamberlain, through the creation and enforcement of his fraudulent and unapproved Administrative Orders is demonstrating that he has personally overthrown the government in Isabella County.

If you live in Michigan and your Chief Judge is creating and enforcing "Administrative Orders" without the approval of the Michigan Supreme Court, your county has been overthrown by your judge.


February 16, 2015 ~ More and more people are staring to figure out that our consent to be ruled by criminal actors posing as legitimate officials is NOT what we need to be doing!

In my posts below, I have defined and demonstrated the willful acts of criminal officials.

Why then, would anyone in their right mind, agree and consent to these same criminals presiding and ruling over them, their lives and their families?

Good question right?

Currently, you would be more fairly judged by walking into a state prison and asking your case be heard and presided over by a convicted criminal then by an alleged "honorable judge" in Isabella county.

We are only ruled and governed by and through our own individual consent. Remove your consent and you remove yourself from the jurisdiction unknowingly forced upon you.

It really is that simple folks!

It is for this reason that I am helping people "opt out" of the fraudulent criminal Michigan county governments schemes and practices through individual Declarations of Independence.

This is quite opposite sedition and/or insurrection due to the fact that these unlawful corporate government entities have already stolen all of our legitimate seats of government through sedition and insurrection where they now freely practice crime instead of justice.

February 15, 2015 ~ Our Michigan State Police

Detective Sargent Gary Green of the Michigan State Police was provided the results on my investigation into the allegations of state sponsored and state sanctioned kidnapping by CPS worker Stefanie Smith that included the evidence, motive and intent and had only this to say...

FIRST, The Michigan State Police can not refuse to conduct investigations into reports of felony crimes. This "notion" is completely ridiculous, dysfunctional and completely self serving!

Is Gary Green getting paid for refusing to investigate allegations of felony crimes? YES!

In addition to Gary's salary related to his JOB as a Michigan State Police DETECTIVE, Gary no doubt will see greater advancement as a state police officer by refusing to investigate crimes committed by the state itself.

So... In our incentive driven society, what would Gary Green's motivation be to act against the state?

If our Michigan State Police are going to openly refuse to follow up and investigate allegations of child abduction and kidnapping, is this a society we really want to be a part of? You can BET YOUR ASS that if these children were the children of a state official or state police officer their would have been an investigation! But if the same allegations are leveraged against state officials their is an entirely different means of resolution behind closed doors.

SECOND, Allegations of kidnapping that involve the state creates an immediate bias and conflict of interest whereas Gary should have involved the FBI but DIDN'T. Hmmm...

FINALLY, If, for no other reason, the state should investigate my allegations in effort to preserve the people's faith and trust. Additionally, the state would like to have charges to leverage against me for harassment and making false criminal allegations. Trouble exists however in any and every attempt to prove my allegations, would in fact prove the opposite therefore, the state can't investigate me without investigating the actual allegations of child abduction and kidnapping.

Call Gary and ask him if your kids are kidnapped if he is going to refuse to investigate. (989) 773-5951 or on his cell at (989) 600-6797.

February 14, 2015 ~ Valentines Day

February 13, 2015 ~ FRIDAY THE 13th...

People do not seem to comprehend that state actions against we the people are made by our alleged state and county officials on behalf of We the People.

With this realization, we the people are party to every action brought by the state.

February 12, 2015 ~ Before you say, "I DON'T CARE" about Family Court Case No. 2014-0000000099-NA...

Before you decide that this case doesn't matter to you... Before you allow yourself to imagine that you are exempt somehow from becoming a target of corrupt county officials you have got to read about the Danielle Austin case because she, at one time, believed herself exempt from intentionally malicious prosecution.


February 11, 2015 ~ Before you start to think that Family Court Case No. 2014-0000000099-NA has nothing to do with you consider the following...

The proceedings against Danielle Austin were initiated by alleged officials in Isabella County against a poor mother with absolutely no means to defend herself. She lacked money for a proper defense, she lacked a complete understanding of her rights and she had no understanding of the law and court procedures and she was directly in the middle of a messy separation and divorce.

These proceedings were initiated against Danielle Austin without a moments notice.

The correct procedure to remove children from an abusive or neglectful home are extremely simple for CPS and state and county prosecutors as they do this every single day. All they have to do is petition the court for an order requesting their desire. This petition has also got to be served on the parents who then become Respondents/Defendants. The Respondents are afforded time with "Proper Lawful Notice" to seek counsel of their choosing and become familiar with the allegations they are facing and a hearing is scheduled so that the state can make it's case and the respondents can make opposing arguments in front of a neutral judge.

Before you wrongly assume that Dani's case has got nothing to do with you, consider this...

Imagine that I sued you for $100k and I never took the time to notify you of the suit and I WON the suit and the judge ordered you to pay me $100k. Would you consider this to be fair?

Now imagine that I sued you for $100k and I never took the time to notify you of the suit and I LOST the suit and the judge ordered you to pay me $100k. Would you consider this to be fair?

This is exactly what happened to Danielle Austin but she lost her three children and the value of that is immeasurable.

Isabella county CPS, Stefanie Smith prepared a petition for the court that requested an order to take Danielle Austin's three children from their home. Stefanie Smith was so confident that the court would issue the desired order that she preemptively took/kidnapped Danielle Austin's three children before the hearing on her petition and the judge DENIED her petition to remove the children from their home!

These are not allegations, these are facts that exist in the court record itself. 2014-0000000099-NA

On July 23, 2014, Stefanie Smith kidnapped Danielle Austin's three children on behalf of the county and state!

The kidnapping of the Austin children predates the petition hearing by only a couple of hours. No doubt Stefanie Smith expected her petition to be granted by the judge but it wasn't. At this point, everyone involved knew that their existed no lawful justification for the Austin children to have been removed from their home and placed with DHS. Everyone includes the judge Mark Duthie, the prosecutor Risa Scully, the public defender for Danielle Austin- Tony Moses, the public defender for the father, the public defender for the children themselves, the referee in the case- Matthew Hagen.

All of these so-called Law Practitioners, Michigan Bar Association Members, were completely aware of the fact that Danielle Austin's children had been unlawfully removed/kidnapped by CPS/DHS and said nothing and did nothing to rectify this horrible situation.

Folks... You are never going to win in court against such overwhelming opposition regardless of the facts and regardless of the law.

Absent Due Process, there exists no logical reason to even have allegations of abuse or neglect for the state to take your children and this makes everyone of us a potential target of these criminals running our county government in Isabella County Michigan and these criminal practices extend well beyond the family court.

February 10, 2015 ~ Demonstrating Conspired Corruption within the Isabella County Courts, it's Judges, Prosecutors and Defenders... Case No. 2014-0000000099-NA

The following clips are from Danielle Austin's Motion Hearing on February 10, 2015. Danielle had fired her lawyer 16 days prior to this hearing on January 26, 2015 after Kelly Lambert refused to represent her interests in this case.

The first clip is the full length audio of the entire hearing. Below the first clip are several more clips that outline specific parts of the hearing with notes and written commentary.

In the clip below, alleged Isabella county judge Mark Duthie claims that this motion hearing is the first time that Mark participated in in this case. This is of course a blatant lie (judicial perjury) as Mark signed the original order denying the state's petition to take the Austin children on 7-23-14. (keep in mind, the Austin children had already been abducted/kidnapped prior to the first hearing which sought an order to remove the Austin children and that petition was denied by Mark Duthie)

This intentional judicial perjury was done by Mark in effort to prepare testimony on the transcript for the benefit of himself if the court transcripts were ever made part of an appeal.

In the following clip, the alleged elected prosecutor of Isabella County, Risa Scully, injects prosecutorial perjury on the record claiming that the court issued an order placing the children with DHS on July 23, 2015. Although this had nothing to do with Danielle Austin's Motion, Risa lied about the issuance of a court order again in preparation and anticipation of this case going up to the appellate court. Shameful!

In the following clip, hear Danielle Austin's own personal (not appointed) fired attorney, violate EVERY attorney client privilege. This man's name is Kelly Lamber and he claims to be a lawyer working out of Grand Rapids. Kelly Lamber had been fired 16 days prior to this Motion Hearing and was instructed and warned to discontinue trespassing on Danielle Austin's case prior to this hearing. Lambert's appearance and scripted presentation at this hearing was insisted upon by the county of Isabella, the judge Duthie and the PA Risa Scully.

Risa Scully is the alleged prosecuting attorney of Isabella county. The Motion Hearing was Danielle Austin's Motion Hearing and the Motion itself was a motion to dismiss based entirely upon "Lack of Notice". Without proper lawful notice, court cases do not exist in law. Defendants and Respondents need to be lawfully notified of actions in law against them. Without proper lawful notice, all of the proceedings are based entirely upon fraud and are frivolous, malicious, vexatious, slanderous, demeaning and scandalous. In the clip below, see if you can hear Risa Scully making any argument or presenting any evidence that might support the notion that Danielle Austin had been properly noticed as required by law.

Mark Duthie and Risa Scully and Dani's own fired lawyer, Kelly Lambert, all converged in Mount Pleasant Michigan on February 10, 2015 to defend themselves against kidnapping charges. They worked hard the night before to work out all the details that were to take place the following day at the hearing (as I am sure phone and fax records will confirm).

Alleged judge Mark Duthie also completely ignored Dani's OBJECTION to her own fired lawyer's testimony against her! This creep wasn't even supposed to be at this hearing but the county needed him there to testify against his own client before being dismissed. Kelly Lambert lied to the court when he claimed that he had several conversations with Dani about her arguments and about her Motion to Dismiss claiming that he had advised Danielle Austin that her arguments and her motion had no legal merit.

At the hearing, and for obvious reasons, not one single argument was presented to dispute Dani's claim that she had never been served notice of the proceedings against her that resulted in the kidnapping of her children.

Danielle Austin's three children, remain to this day (Feb 23, 2015), outside of Dani's control by the kidnappers.

January 30, 2015 ~ Conducting a forensic audit of the Isabella County, MI Courts

I am conducting a forensic audit of the Isabella County Courts, starting with the alleged Family Court which, according to public information, would be more aptly named, "The Anti-Family Court".

Individual court records with gross due process violations only paints a single piece of the puzzle. Through a thorough review it is expected that enough pieces will be painted to portray the entire image and establish patterns of practice that have created a "ratified criminal public policy" by county officials to practice and willfully participate in the intentional deprivation of rights under color of law to forward personal monetary gain and revenue generation to all of the willing parasitical participants we call our state officials.

I will be presenting my findings, not to other corrupt courts and not to collaborative law enforcement (Leo Mioduszewski, Tony Krodet, Gary Green, Bill Schuette etc etc), but to we the people as the controlling superior authority over our governments, our law enforcement and our courts for adjudication under the common law using and applying due process.

We have long since past the point of expecting the "right thing" from our courts. When the police and the judicial system stops following even it's own rules while suggesting absolute immunity, it not only has become pointless and a massive waste of time to learn those rules but also becomes a forced participation in their fraud to adhere ourselves to the same rules they freely ignore.

Wanton Due Process violations by the state, openly and criminally sanctions personal condemnation upon unsubstantiated and unproven allegation without facts and evidence to generate revenue for the state. Without Due Process we have chaos and havoc. How is it that the chaos and havoc can be so completely and intentionally one sided?

The allegedly "honorable" chief judge, Paul Chamberlain ordered armed men to steal my personal property as I peacefully sat in a public courtroom to observe felony proceedings against a man whom was made to answer to sworn felony allegations by a police officer that had ZERO first hand knowledge (perjury, malicious prosecution, false criminal allegations, extortion etc etc...) of the events surrounding his arrest, prosecution and sentencing. Paul Chamberlain afforded me ZERO due process to obtain his personal objectives (concealment of the aforementioned crimes of the state)... Paul Chamberlain afforded ZERO due process to the accused whom was found guilty on the perjured allegations of a Mount Pleasant, MI police officer...

Are convictions achieved absent due process done under color of law somehow more palatable to society or are our courts intentionally creating this pressure cooker environment on purpose to create armed conflict so that it can attempt to impose martial law?

Due process is really a simple thing but it hinders the state's ability to more quickly generate revenue so we are going to peacefully allow the state to toss it out the window for the sake of the state's convenience? DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH!

If due process is going to be completely denied, to be fair, should be completely denied in both directions.

If Danielle Austin's children are going to be kidnapped by the state in the complete and intentional absence of due process, why then should due process be relied upon to get her children returned to her? How is this supposed to make any sense to anyone? Dani has to file for a motion hearing in a case that shouldn't exist and doesn't exist in law. Dani is now tied up in a case that should NOT exist back to the point of it's evil inception due to the intentional due process violations against her by the state but she is "required" to learn and apply due process to get them back?!?!
Dani and her children were shanghaied and thrown on this boat called our judicial system and have been forced to participate and can only be threatened by that which has already been done to them.

Leo Mioduszewski's alleged sheriff department stole my family's home AND it's contents absent any and all due process on September 27, 2010 and has only used the department's influence to aid and abet and offer safe harbor to the criminals involved and then the alleged "honorable" Paul Chamberlain waists nearly three years of the victim's lives (my entire family) only to dismiss all the charges against his friends and co-workers.

The willful creation of these "no win situations" by the state against her people

PS:  I am not homicidal nor am I suicidal. This seems to be a common finding among police tasked to investigate the murder of people who, like myself, elect to make a stand against the state in efforts to correct for the sake of all our children.

January 19, 2015 ~ Kidnapping

The following email was just sent to those named below.

Subject: Child Protective Services Industry/Corporation
Case No: 2014-0000000099-NA

To Whom all this may concern,

Approximately 180 days ago, grave injustices took place on your watch. You are being notified directly and independently to achieve your own full personal, commercial and criminal liability. Refusal to act in accordance with your oath is NOT an option. You are hereby put on notice. Notice to agent is notice to agency, notice to agency is notice to agent.

On July 23, 2014, Danielle Austin, was called and asked to be in court at 3:00p.m. that same day by CPS worker Stephanie Smith two hours prior to that hearing at approximately 1:00p.m. During that same phone call, Stephanie Smith asked Danielle Austin if she could afford a lawyer to which Danielle replied that she could not. During this same phone call, Stephanie Smith told Danielle that her children were being removed from her custody and placed with others and that Forster care for Michael Austin had already been arranged (prior to ANY hearing).

Arriving at the waiting area in the Isabella county courthouse as directed by Stephanie Smith, Danielle was approached by Tony Moses and he advised Danielle that he was her court appointed lawyer. Tony Mosses took Danielle Austin to a conference room where he pronounced the allegations being made by the state against her and that they were very very serious. (Three pages of unsigned and unsworn allegations)

At no point EVER was Danielle Austin served notice by Wendy Yost. Danielle Austin was only provided a copy of the summons and petition AFTER the 3:00p.m. hearing by a lawyer “claiming” to have been appointed to represent her at the hearing on July 23, 2014 at 3:00p.m. who later filed his notice of appearance in this same case some five days later on July 28, 2014. Tony Moses could NOT have received service on behalf of Danielle Austin on July 23, 2014 because he was NOT her lawyer until July 28, 2014.

Danielle Austin was not properly served, she was made to participate in court with ZERO knowledge of the unsigned allegations she was to face and ZERO time to seek competent legal counsel of her choosing all during a time her children had already been kidnapped by the state WITHOUT a court order signed by a judge. Stephanie Smith acted as judge, jury and executioner.

Wendy Yost “may have” served notice upon Tony Mosses before Tony Mosses had been introduced to Danielle Austin but this is speculation and does not change the fact that Wendy Yost claimed to have served Danielle Austin personally when she did NOT. This is PERJURY.

Page 1 of the SUMMONS attempts to define Danielle Austin's rights but she was never served notice of the petition and notice of her rights.

"As a respondent you have the right to be represented by an attorney."
This particular "right" was completely and intentionally averted as Danielle Austin was NEVER served notice. Even had Wendy Yost personally served Danielle Austin (which she did not), being served 3 min before the event is not PROPER LAWFUL NOTICE as claimed in almost every subsequent court filing made by the state which is intentional fraud and deception to avoid liability and the creation of a conspiracy against rights secured by our constitution.

Even if we are to set all of these gross and criminal errors aside, the 3:00pm hearing was on the petition. The petition sought to obtain a court order to remove the children from the Austin home (see Page 3 Item 8 of the petition) and this petition was denied.

The petition itself was DENIED in the court order that followed the hearing (see Page 3 Item 21) but still, Danielle Austin's three children had already been taken=kidnapped by the state!

Without proof, by court order signed by a judge, that predates the call from Stephanie Smith at 1:00P.M. on July 23, 2014, (of which Danielle Austin was completely aware of and participated in) Danielle Austin's children were taken prior to any court order and this constitutes constructive criminal trespass and kidnapping under color of law.

Melody Lake claims that Danielle Austin's children were taken "pursuant to a court order". This is intentionally FALSE! (A LIE) Danielle's children were taken prior to any court order and everything that happened after is predicated entirely in FRAUD.

Each and every one of you named at the top of this document are personally responsible for undoing what has wrongfully and unlawfully been done. Any and all monies that have been wrongfully seized and/or charged and billed including 3rd party fees and charges and child support and benefits intercepted will be returned and restored immediately and the state will withdraw itself from the unlawful interference with regard to the Austin family COMPLETELY and IMMEDIATELY on every level and in every aspect.

Every single thing that has transpired in this case since Danielle's forced appearance in court without proper lawful notice and without the benefit of legal counsel is COMPLETELY & IRRECOVERABLY VOID.

Your conspired cooperative actions to date are in violation of Federal Criminal Law, specifically Title 18 U.S.C. § § 241 and 242. Working together, above named, constitutes a conspired deprivation of INALIENABLE natural rights secured by the Constitution that you have each sworn an oath to protect. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/investigate/civilrights/federal-statutes

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241
Conspiracy Against Rights
This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).

It further makes it unlawful for two or more persons to go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another with the intent to prevent or hinder his/her free exercise or enjoyment of any rights so secured.

Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to ten years, or both; and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years, or for life, or may be sentenced to death.

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law
This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.

This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an alien or by reason of his/her color or race.

Acts under "color of any law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under "color of any law," the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to one year, or both, and if bodily injury results or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined or imprisoned up to ten years or both, and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

In the upcoming suit for damages under Title 42 and the demand for criminal charges under title 18, it is recognized that some of you named above have not yet “directly” participated in these travesties (criminal events). It is up to you now to separate yourself and your personal, corporate and criminal liability by actively and immediately participating in the immediate rectification of these matters (This does not include KILLING the victims nor myself). Despite any internal directives (or the promise of immunity) that may require you to remain unified in this flagrant abuse of power and authority, you are strongly encouraged to seek your own individual competent criminal common law counsel.


Owning the courts and the police is NOT your entire concern.

Everyone on this list is required to REPLY via email with your full contact information and your rectification plans and stated intent within 24 hours of receipt of this notice.

December 31, 2014 ~ The 4+ Year Criminal Investigation into ME

Attached here is a three page police report with a five page supplemental in the criminal case building project against me.

To view the images below, right click and open in a new tab or window.

Are we just supposed to assume that FOUR YEAR criminal investigations are normal folks?

Well they are NOT!

In fact, this criminal investigation in particular has been and remains over my head for the same exact reasons that I was basically under house arrest for four months waiting to be arraigned after I was kidnapped for calling 911 to report crimes by police. The PAO's office told me after my initial arraignment was canceled without notice that I could be arraigned at a moments notice and told me not to leave the county!

December 30, 2014 ~ What Constitutes a Threat

Many people have claimed that I have "threatened" them when I have not.

So... What actually constitutes a threat?

  1. 1.
    a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for something done or not done.
    "members of her family have received death threats"
    synonyms: threatening remark, warningultimatum
    "Maggie ignored his threats"
  2. 2.
    a person or thing likely to cause damage or danger.
    "hurricane damage poses a major threat to many coastal communities"

Was Melody Lake threatened as per this definition? Well... first we would need to have a transcript of our conversation where she claims she was threatened by me. I would never put myself in a position where I could incorrectly quote another person.

Is it possible to threaten someone with law and due process?

I personally do not believe that it is possible to threaten somebody with one of their own inalienable rights (due process). If I know that a group is practicing in criminal activities and some pawn that doesn't, starts to align themselves with the criminal group, I feel it to be the right thing to do by offering a caution which may seem to be a threat when in fact it is not a threat.

  1. 1.
    care taken to avoid danger or mistakes.
    "anyone receiving a suspect package should exercise extreme caution"
    synonyms: care, carefulness, heedfulness, heedattention, attentiveness,alertness, watchfulness, vigilancecircumspectiondiscretion,prudence
    "proceed with caution"
  2. 2.
    an amusing or surprising person.
  1. 1.
    say something as a warning.
    "the secretary cautioned that economic uncertainties remained"

In short, I guess those that have openly stated that I have threatened them without making claim and providing proof are just hell bent on using slander and libel instead of the courts. The trouble with this is, you can not have a slander & libel action without proof either but when someone makes a statement in a recorded public meeting that they have been threated by someone, this creates it's own proof if the open public meeting happens to be recorded.

The burden of proof falls on the person having made the allegation of threat and not the person with the recorded message of slander & libel.

Melody Lake needs to prove that I actually threatened her as it is not my job to prove that I didn't. If unable to prove that I did threaten her, her actions and statements against me are slanderous and libelous.

December 30, 2014 ~ Show Cause

For those of you that DO NOT know...

If you are or have been asked to waive your right to a show cause hearing, you are electing to be tried, convicted and sentenced on the allegations alone and specifically without the need for actual facts and evidence.


Your right to a show cause hearing is a right that you can not give up even voluntarily as it is an inalienable right and a right no different than breathing.

Anyone suggesting that you waive your right to be presented with actual evidence in support of allegations is asking to smack you upside your head with a large board full of nails!

The court processes in every county of every state have been streamlined strictly for revenue generation. Having to actually provide proof of your guilt takes time and money. If sufficient evidence is not presented at your show cause or evidentiary hearing, the charges against you should be dropped all together. If the evidence isn't convincing using the reasonable man standard at your show cause hearing, the corporate entity perusing charges after a failed show cause hearing is setting itself up for malicious prosecution charges.

The trouble with this is, the county and state loses money. Every single paid action against you from your capture to your holding to your release to your assignment of a public prostetutor is all for not if the hurdle to show cause fails. Removing this roadblock for them assures additional revenue for them and the parasites that have grown up around them.

December 30, 2014 ~ Game playing

The alleged county and state police in our county have been working to slander and discredit me by creating and participating in secret investigations based upon bogus criminal allegations. They don't like being alleged as criminals but they have no problem trying to build bogus charges to make me LOOK like a criminal...

This is extremely disturbing!

I have uncovered several different "police reports" created about me with the direct and specific intent to cause and bring harm to me both physically and socially.

As ALL police have access to the bogus police reports about me, I refuse to travel with a license plate and have equipped my vehicles with redundant live streaming video cameras. I would much rather be pulled over by a neutral party than one that has read and accepted as fact that I am something other than I am such as "VOLATILE PERSON~ quote by D/SGT Jerry Carter of the Michigan State Police" or a "VIOLENT INDIVIDUAL WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR GREAT VIOLENCE~quote from Melody Lake of the Isabella county DHS".

On display in public buildings here in Isabella county is this "mugshot" that uses a picture of me that was taken when I was kidnapped during the commission of Federal crimes by employed members of the Isabella county sheriff department as if I were one of America's Most Wanted!

Right click on the image below and open in a new tab for a better view.

This public posting contains my name, date of birth, address and social security number! I have redacted my address and SSAN from this picture when they DID NOT!

Not only is this a blatant violation of my privacy, it is the social slaughter of my name and of me.

While I could have found and published this same private information on Risa Scully, Larry Burdick, Paul Chamberlain, Leo M, John Tellis etc etc, I DID NOT!

Below is a partial list of individual reports generated by both the MSP and the county police and includes an incident from 2005 from Wisconsin but is used here as part of the case building against me.

1. 063-0002175-05 titled ROAD RAGE (2005)
2. 03-22-05a Dodgeville, WI (2005)
3. 137-0002761-10 titled MISUSE OF 911 (2010)
4. 041-0002741-10 titled PROPERTY DAMAGE (2010)
5. 041-0000457-11 titled VOLATILE PERSON (2011)
6. 063-0003446-13 titled UNLAWFUL POSTINGS (2013)
7. 137-0004477-08 titled ? (2008)
8. 137-0001512-10 titled ? (2010)

Having now all edited versions of items 1-6 above, I can start to demonstrate intent as well as point out things that may be hidden by any single complaint.

From the list above, the following numbers are at the edit/version levels listed below. Take note that the only alleged police report that does not have a separate number in parenthesis following the "incident number" is the ONLY report that I demanded to see and have a copy of directly after the incident.

1. 063-0002175-05 (03) ROAD RAGE (2005)
2. 03-22-05a Dodgeville, WI (2005)
3. 137-0002761-10 MISUSE OF 911 (2010)
4. 041-0002741-10 (01) PROPERTY DAMAGE (2010)
5. 041-0000457-11 (02) VOLATILE PERSON (2011)
6. 063-0003446-13 (05) UNLAWFUL POSTINGS (2013)
7. 137-0004477-08 titled ? (2008)
8. 137-0001512-10 titled ? (2010)

I have yet to see and have a copy of items 7-8 above.

Publicly and for the record;

Item 1 above is and continues to be used out of context as I am the one that called 911 to report attempted vehicular assault. I was cited for passing on the right while the other guy was cited for careless driving. Although I am the one that reported the road rage, it shows as if I were the road rager.

Item 2 above is another item being used out of context. An employee of mine started a fight and using all lesser means available, I stopped the fight.

Item 3 above is me being kidnapped for calling 911 to report crimes by police. This video is on YouTube both in full and in part.

Item 4 above is a sheriff department employee (Shelly Sweet) making an unfounded claim that I damaged her property.

Item 5 above is a report generated by D/SGT Jerry Carter that is a complete fabrication. If their were any truth to this report, audio and video evidence would have been included as this incident took place in the Michigan State Police Post lobby.

Item 6 above constitutes a fabricated case building project that spans from January 1, 2011 to the present day! This is an active investigation about me spanning 1,460 DAYS!

Alternative time units

1460 days can be converted to one of these units:

  • 126,144,000 seconds
  • 2,102,400 minutes
  • 35,040 hours
  • 1460 days
  • 208 weeks and 4 days
  • Or 3 years, 11 months, 30 days
  • Or... 4 years tomorrow...

Items 7 & 8. I am not sure what these items are yet as I have not seen them yet but have seen them referenced in other reports. By the date associated I might assume that one of them was related to requesting a "Road Kill Tag" for a deer I hit on Fremont Rd. The other might be a traffic ticket for not wearing my seatbelt.

In addition to having SOME reports, I am left wondering why others have not been included and provided that I know to exist.


December 30, 2014 ~ July 23, 2013 my girlfriend's three children were kidnapped by Isabella county DHS

Dani Austin was summoned to be in court by a phone call two hours prior to the proceedings that were initiated to take her children where the very first action was to deprive her of a "Show Cause Hearing".

Having absolutely no idea of what a "Show Cause Hearing" was and having no time to find competent legal help within that two hour window, she was railroaded and her children were stolen.

Partial Transcript of an active,
corporate government sponsored hostage situation

"Let's do the FTM now while we have everybody here.... bla bla
So what we need to discuss though is one of the things with visitation, one of the BIG things with visitation, umm...  You are unsupervised (with your children) but we are going to ask that they not go to the residence where you are staying at. There are some pretty significant concerns there. With where you are staying and with whats going on there so umm so I think that's something to be KNOWN, they are not to go there at all <Dani- I'm aware> ok. And that would be something that even after this case closes, they are not to go there, EVER.  They are not to be around him, they are not to talk to him, he is not an appropriate person for them at all. <Dani- and the reasons?> The reasons are, I have had multiple conversations with Isabella county officials, and police,  that sa-think he is not appropriate "chuckle" and the recommendation that I (Melody Lake) never go to his residence ever again. So I am actually concerned with you being there. Does that make sense? <Dani- no, I guess I can see it from their standpoint but from mine he's not a bad person what-so-ever> and, I can understand that, where you would come from with that, when you, when you are in a relationship with someone or somebody or you like somebody, you want to see them in a different light, but the light that the rest of society sees him is a violent individual with the potential for some great violence (voice shaking, pen clicking). <Dani- Laughs>"

Clearly Melody Lake had not been "read-in" with regard to myself and the other events taking place. She, being a pawn, I felt sorry for her and offered her a caution which she perceived as a threat.

Obviously I was NOT supposed to get my hands on this recording but now this public meeting that I had once been invited to is now being considered private and Dani is catching threats.

The manipulation of LAW to suit criminal objectives is just plain EVIL.

So now let us get to the clearly obvious questions that pop to mind after hearing what a horribly bad and inappropriate person I am according to what Melody Lake calls, "the rest of society".

Q1. Has the state taken my own children from me? NO! Despite my own children having been victimized by the same alleged officials in Isabella county, their mother and I have been able to limit their exposure to the corruption that obliterated us as a family in every imaginable way.

Q2. Have I been charged and convinced of any crime that would make it inappropriate for me to be around any person's children? NO! This is absolutely horrifying beyond ALL measures of comprehension!!! Not only have I not ever been convicted of ANY crimes, on the mere suggestion by officials and law enforcement here in Isabella county Michigan, I am allegedly SO BAD that Dani can never ever have her own children with or around me not only today but also to infinity and beyond!

Q3. So how is this assault on my girlfriend, her ex and the kidnapping of their children related to me? If the answer to this question is not readily apparent to you, you are only wishing it that way. It should be obvious using the reasonable man standard that these criminals want the rest of society to believe that I am irrational, confrontational, suicidal and homicidal with a potential for great violence and that I would act out with violence in response to this latest attack. This would serve them very well as they would get to kill me and then use all of their accumulated bogus slander tactics to demonstrate myself as some sort of vial character.

It should also be clear at this point and with this recording that the recommendation for Melody Lake to never come to my home again ever is only to prevent the additional capture of information spilled by lose lips and little brains. This audio clip puts everything that I have been talking about for the last 4.5 years in one neat little package that is clear, concise and gets directly to the root of the problem.

What should really scare We the People is the statement where Melody Lake references the entire body of society in only those elected and employed to serve all of society!

Especially where children are involved, their can be no waiver to the show cause requirement!

"Whoever falsely assumes or pretends to be an officer or employee acting under the authority of the United States or any department, agency or officer thereof, and acts as such, or in such pretended character demands or obtains any money, paper, document, or thing of value, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."

9.     I demand to see and have a copy of any document used or claimed to verify and/or justify Dani Austin's waiver of a show cause hearing prior to the kidnapping of her children by corporate county officials.  Additionally, I demand that you demonstrate how you came to believe that Dani Austin knew what a show cause hearing was when you claimed that she waived her right to it. Since Dani Austin did not know what a show cause hearing was when you alleged that she waived her right to it, this waiver is void and a show cause hearing is hereby demanded.

10.    I demand to know what Michigan LAW was relied upon for "lawful notice" by CPS when it made (summoned) Dani Austin to appear in court with only two hours notice and then stole her right to a show cause hearing.

I do NOT appreciate having my picture posted. This is an invasion of my privacy and a violation of my reasonable expectation to my right to privacy. This picture was from my kidnapping and not from any lawful arrest. This picture was forceably taken without my authorization and without my consent. 

Calling this picture a "mugshot" wrongly and intentionally implies that I was lawfully arrested when I was not. This is slanderous and libelous, defamatory and scandalous. I do not have, use and post your home addresses and your social security numbers and other private information about all of you!
Would you like it if I did that to you?
This is terrorizing, intimidating and threatening.
Also take note that this is criminal harassment and intentional reckless endangerment!
Either take this complaint against yourself or request a special prosecutor for me.

December 20, 2014 ~ Just now buzzed by low flying plane

The perception of paranoia may be accurate but I assure you that the fear is real.

December 19, 2014 ~ Open message to all Militia in every state

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Continue to regulate and organize.
Do not boast and remain respectful and peaceful.
Understand that there will be infiltrators amongst your ranks at every level.
Grow your numbers without fear for every corporate impostor taken in you will find 10+ men pure of heart.
Beware of those most eager and those most eager to act.
Beware of men on state or federal salary including DISABILITY COMPENSATION.
Study both the Bible and our Constitution.
Be smart and stay safe.

The fear of infiltration has for decades, and intentionally and rightfully so, been a restrictive factor in the peoples ability to organize, regulate and effectively grow.

As you already know, our courts have been captured and our ability to seek redress eliminated and due process destroyed. We the people are now being openly plundered by the corporate fiction to support their ever growing standing army directly under the nose of the American people.

Since this standing army was not authorized by official act of Congress, we need to recognize this force for what it is... a foreign occupying force.

We stand as the last thorn in opposition to global governance (global slavery).

Continue to lead by impeccable standards and excellent example.

Peace, my brothers and sisters. May God bless us, each and every one.

Many thanks for the watchful eyes upon myself and my family!


Theodore Visner Visner for Sheriff - Isabella County, MI, Ted Visner
De jure Sheriff
for the county of Isabella.

December 15, 2014 ~ Until yesterday, the people have had no where to go to register complaints and to seek redress of grievances

How did we happen to digress back to the very same conditions that led our founding fathers to break the ties and to declare our independence from Britain?

Today, I am taking complaints and completing reports as the De Jure Sheriff of Isabella County as the corporate county sheriff has and continues to refuse to do. Something to do with the corporate county charter I would imagine...

Our corporate county government units don't have to acknowledge, support and uphold the Constitution so they do NOT.

The problem for them is, We the People did not establish and ordain these corporate fictions. We the People, established and ordained the de jure republic form of government that has been suppressed almost entirely out of existence.

If you have attempted to report crime of public officials and have been rejected, don't feel bad because you are in great company.

December 14, 2014 ~ Taking Complaints

As the De Jure, non-corporate Sheriff of my county, I am taking (non-emergency) complaints from any and all within my jurisdiction, the jurisdiction defined as Isabella County. At this time however, your complaints must first be rejected by the county corporation.

If you feel you have an emergency, you should dial 9-1-1.

If your complaint is considered a non-emergency you are encouraged to send an email to ted@visner4sheriff.com and I will personally address your complaint.

December 14, 2014 ~ Visner is the De Jure Sheriff of Isabella County by the vote of the people

This week I discovered that I was the only De Jure candidate for Isabella County Sheriff in 2012.

I also learned that Sheriff Leo at the time was and had been working for and with the De Facto corporate government in Isabella County and that he had, for the previous eight year, pledged his oath to the corporate fictional government of Isabella County.

To understand the reason why our country has gotten so screwed up you only need to come to understand one thing.

Corporations have taken over government absent the knowledge of most people. In 1933 after the US bankruptcy, all government units incorporated. This was unconstitutional and was supposed to be temporary but greed consumed those who realized the advantages of running the government under a corporation as opposed to legitimate republic form of government. Lets face it, running a government under the chains of the constitution is a real drag! No power, no benefits etc etc...

Today our government structure consists of the De Jure and the De Facto. The De Jure was here from the beginning and created by our founding fathers. The De Facto came into being after the US bankruptcy and is all a corporate fiction from the local units of government all the way up to the federal government. They are all for-profit corporations with investments and holdings that we don't even know about. Google CAFR.

To better understand the De Jure and De Facto think of it as two columns with De Jure on one side and De Facto on the other. De Jure being legitimate and De Fact being the fraud. Every elected official first swears an oath to the De Facto before swearing an oath to the De Jure leaving the De Jure side of government vacant and abandoned.

Every elected official works to preserve the illusion currently held over the people that we have a government at all when in fact we have been hoodwinked.

In 2011 and 2012 when I was running for sheriff, I didn't even know that our government was currently and had been for decades, a corporate fiction. My candidacy was completely De Jure while my opponent's was completely De Facto. The De Facto, both Republican and Democratic parties, knew this. This is why my "alleged party" publicly endorsed the opposing candidate.

When I ran against corporate sheriff Leo, he had already been serving the corporation of Isabella County for the past eight years as the De Facto sheriff.

True government can NOT step away from the restrictions, requirements and chains of the constitution but the corporate fiction can, will and does. When you hear a judge, in open court, claim that the constitution has no place in his courtroom, he is in fact correct because his court is De Facto and not De Jure. He is there by and through usurpation and fraud and not by vote of the people.

Everyone knows that you can not maintain a lie forever and the delicate De Facto house of cards is coming apart rather quickly. This duality in government needs to be know and made to stop.

Our system of government is not flawed, it has been taken over by corporations and greed.

The corporate fiction in Isabella County watches this site daily and the logs have been made public and are monitored by others. While the county should rebut any incorrect facts herein, I am more likely to be killed for making this presentation publicly.

The fictional corporate influence here in Isabella County is overwhelming to say the least. My discovery of these facts has made me a target of everyone willingly participating in the corporate fiction, it's fraud and it's takeover and subversion of our counties and of our country.


Sheriff Leo, with regard to my family (We the People) has NEVER been a sheriff at all.

He allowed and then protected (thru fraudulent use of the sheriff's office) the following

In 2010 the sheriff department looted my family's home

In 2010 the sheriff department stole my family's home

In 2010 the sheriff department gave my family our home back empty after it had been looted whereas we had no reason to stay and thus left.

In 2010 the sheriff department kidnapped me during the commission of federal crimes by the sheriff department.

Sheriff Leo has never acted as Isabella County Sheriff in all the time I have known him.

Sheriff Leo has continued to refuse to act as sheriff since my allegations were made known to him in 2010.

I have never known sheriff Leo to act and perform the duties of sheriff outside of media ops.

Sheriff Leo is not a sheriff for the people. He has abandoned and left vacant the De Jure seat of county sheriff to fill the seat of corporate fiction de facto sheriff.

In my personal experience and in what I know about sheriff Leo is that he acts and serves to support the corporate government fiction in Isabella County and not the people.

In 2012 I ran against Leo in the public election for sheriff in Isabella County.

Supposedly, and although Leo didn't campaign against me, he was reported and alleged to have won by 7.5%.

Since corporate sheriff Leo does NOT represent the people but only the corporation, Leo is not the people's sheriff.

Since corporate incumbent sheriff Leo ran against me in 2012 as a fiction and not as a person for the people, Leo falsely represented himself to the people in the 2012 election.

Leo's alleged victory in the 2012 election allowed continued safe harbor for the impostor corporate government in Isabella county. Had I won publicly by actual vote, Leo and many others would have been arrested.

Since Leo has demonstrated and continued to demonstrate his allegiance to the corporate fiction over the people of Isabella County, Leo is not a sheriff and his alleged victory serves not the people but the continued fraud over the people.

Corporate sheriff Leo has demonstrated he is strictly De Facto.

Sheriff Leo's only opponent in the 2012 election for sheriff, Theodore Visner, was and is strictly De Jure.

Since the De Jure form of governance is the only form of governance established and ordained by the people, Visner won the 2012 election for sheriff to fill the De Jure seat of the sheriff in Isabella County.

Since the 2012 election for sheriff in Isabella County was between a single De Jure candidate and a single De Facto candidate, the De Jure candidate would have won with a single vote. Had the only De Jure candidate not received a single vote, the De Jure office of sheriff would have remained vacant.

Visner is the De Jure Sheriff of Isabella County by and through the vote of the people.

Isabella County, Michigan

December 13, 2014 ~ Coming Full Circle

Impostor corporate fictions have illegally assumed the power of our government and have absolutely no authority over the people.

They know this so they rule the masses by and through implied consent.

They do have the ability to contract with you under the Uniform Commercial Code or UCC and you have the ability to refuse that contract, accept that contract as written or conditionally accept that contract with your own provisions.

When you are given a speeding ticket or a ticket for not wearing a seat belt, that is a "Notice" and an offer to contract between the corporate fiction and yourself. You are being asked to contract with the corporate fiction and not any legitimate form of actual government.

What we are seeing today are failing corporations. Corporations whom have exceeded their liabilities and have become un-insurable. Their acts are becoming outwardly more and more hostile and violent and the people are being made to suffer more and more.

Knowing what I know today, I am no longer surprised to see anything, no matter how bizarre.

December 12, 2014 ~ Standing Army Defined

Standing armies on American soil can only be authorized by and through an act of Congress.

The corporate fictions that are pretending and sometimes acting as our legitimate units of government are in fact de facto impostors whom have assumed/stolen/usurped the power placed in the legitimate de jure government established and ordained by we the people.

The corporate fiction(s) act as a standing army against the people of the united States and are avid opponents of our state and federal Constitutions.

We the people have never nor would ever establish and ordain these impostor corporate fictions.

Whether an unauthorized and unsanctioned US Standing Army or a foreign occupying force=BAR, neither provide nor serve liberty nor the pursuit of happiness.

It is time that the People understand the rules and know the players.

Just as you wouldn't take orders from employees at McDonald's, so to should you refuse to take unlawful orders from your impostor county officials. Do so in a completely nonviolent way and there is absolutely zero recourse for them.

December 11, 2014 ~ email to Risa Scully as Isabella County Corporate Prosecutor

Dear Isabella County Prosecuting Attorney, Risa Scully

This is completely wrong on EVERY level.


Kidnapping me while I was trying to report state and federal crimes being carried out by your corporate police was one thing... kidnapping three children and keeping them from their mother while attempting to criminalize her to get to me or attempting to make me lash out or be violent is completely foul and absolutely disgusting.

I don't care what you think about me personally or otherwise because nothing you have to say about me can be supported or substantiated by any true evidence and is being put forth completely out of self preservation and retaliation. Nothing you have to say about me includes a single shred of any attempt at due process.

What concerns me is the complete lack of due process here in Isabella County and your full support of the lack of the people's secured constitutional rights! You should be ashamed! You are in contempt of your oath of office and in contempt of the Constitution itself. Your acts are treasonous.

Where is the due process in telling someone, absent all due process, that someone should be or is condemned simply for having a complaint against you and your office? Specify the government regulation that allows you to violate the people's rights in effort to preserve the Public Trust. Where does your authorization come from that allows you and your partner officials to attempt to criminalize the people you are supposed to be serving to keep them from having a means of redress which is another and separate constitutional violation all together!  Tell me what authorization you have to commence acts of war against the citizenry out of retaliation for the people's attempt at redress against government officials and police.


This isn't about politics, this is about the wanton acts of crime by government officials in Isabella County. You and your office have been on notice for over four years!

Your retaliation efforts against me are criminal. Additionally, unconstitutional. Your wanton and intentional acts are designed to deprive the people of the right to seek redress which is a constitutionally secured right in both the state and federal constitutions.

D/SGT Jerry Carter, as a police officer and as a person, completed a false police report against me (a crime) wrongly naming me a “VOLATILE PERSON”. The creation of the fictitious police report intentionally makes me a target to all police. This police report, in addition to being slanderous and libelous, intentionally places me in great danger. While everything is recorded in the police post lobby, no recordings were attached to this complaint to support it. Slander/Libel suit initiated in re Incident No 041-0000457-11 (02)

Your corporate county and it's corporate officials claimed to have arrested me yet never allowed me my day in court while essentially jailing me at home for four months awaiting an alleged ability to arraign me at any time. While you get to use the claim that I was arrested, you have intentionally left me with nothing to defend myself with. I have learned that this tactic and practice to be your modus operandi.

FOIA requests for any legal authorization to take my family's home and it's contents doesn't exist but instead of receiving confirmation of it's non-existence through FOIA, the requests are simply denied. Extremely self serving don't you think?

The breath and scope of your influence has been quite impressive, I will give you that. I don't think that your open acts however, conform to the desired amount of open hostilities prescribed and as the rest of the world watches your balancing act upon the knife's edge, your all in approach, however commendable on the one side, is all together criminally inclusive on the other side.

What a gamble you are taking!

The quiet subversion of the American legal system is supposed to be quiet, I would imagine. Your open and indefensible acts however, have been blatant and obvious.

You have judges ignoring court orders both local and federal, ordering the theft of personal property in courtrooms, you have police committing open acts of crime, swearing out criminal complaints without ANY first hand knowledge and you would like the world to believe that I am the criminal?

I am ordering you, as a proven functional component of an unauthorized, unsanctioned and unconstitutional standing criminal army to stand down and withdraw.

1.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of the picture and it's accompanying writeup that is or
has been on display in the PAO. (The information requested better match the picture I have)
2.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a signed copy of Incident Number: 041-0000457-11 (02)
3.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of Incident Number: 041-0000457-11 (01) (signed or otherwise) and any other reports generated by the Michigan State Police and Isabella County police with regard to me.
4.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of any and all other county generated police reports
having anything to do with me and my family over the last five years.
5.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of the alleged related complaints in Jerry's complaint against me.
Specifically and as individual requests,
a.    63-2175-05
b.    41-2741-10
c.    137-2761-10
d.    137-1512-10
6.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of any evidence claimed against me so that I have a proper means to address specific allegations against me individually and severally.
7.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of any and all written or claimed authorization to violate the oath of office and violate the state and federal constitutions.
8.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of congressional authorization for the existence and operation of a standing army in Isabella County Michigan or in Michigan.
9.)    I DEMAND to see and to have a copy of any warrant, legitimate or otherwise, authorizing the state sponsored and sanctioned theft of my family's home on, before and after September 27, 2010.
10.)    I DEMAND to see and have a copy of your complaint of my alleged insurrection and the authorization for ignoring my allegations of your insurrection.

Failure to comply will result in individual actions being brought forth and on each individual request individually.

The case building against me needs to stop. Having my picture up at your reception window is a violation of my privacy, a threat to my life and is additionally slanderous and libelous. If you had legitimate charges to bring against me you obviously would have done it by now to shut me up.

STOP WAGING WAR against me, my friends and family!
Stay criminal proceedings and restore Dani's parental and custodial rights NOW!
START conducting yourself according to morality and to your oath of office!

On ALLEGATIONS alone, Michael Austin and his mother Dani spent 14 DAYS at the University of Michigan Hospital where an extremely thorough and very intensive physical examination was conducted based upon those ALLEGATIONS along with an independent in-house CPS investigation at the UofM whereas Michael Austin was released to his mother Dani Austin only to have Isabella County take all three of her children two days later for attempting to move (by one day) the start of in-home nursing for Michael Austin while workmen were scheduled to be in her home and she was in the process of moving to a hotel.

Although the waring actions of Isabella County officials against me are thorough, completely damning and harmful to myself, my family, friends and loved ones, I will not ever retaliate with violence. The use of policing agencies in effort to label me violent is an intentional effort and act to put me in harms way and an attempt to establish a viable defense to my execution by police and/or state officials, accidental or otherwise.

I have placed myself under 24 hour streaming video surveillance and restricted my movements to reduce and eliminate interactions with Isabella County and it's officials whom claim me to be a violent individual with the potential for some great violence absent any evidence of such.

Unless we are truly at war, you have absolutely no justification or authorization to deny ANY of the requests and demands contained herein. Any denial, in full or in part, or demand for money in exchange for the information demanded herein shall constitute and be considered your declaration of war against ME AND THE PEOPLE OF MICHIGAN. This is not to be considered a threat of violence by me as I already know that you are actively at war with me. Your undeclared acts of war against me, my family and my friends have not provoked me to violence nor will they ever provoke me to act in violence and your open declaration of war against me and the people of Michigan will not provoke me to violence either, however, I can obviously not speak for all the other people of Michigan. I am not stupid, we are not stupid, we know you want me to act out but it isn't going to happen, now or ever. If you are going to kill me or have me killed, you will have to kill (murder) a nonviolent, unarmed man that is and has been simply petitioning the government for redress which has been openly and criminally denied now for over 4.5 years. The intentional deprivation of rights under color of law.

I know that our state and federal Constitutions are a pain in your ass and serves as a detriment to your objectives but that is your problem, not mine. At the end of the day, you are still required to reconcile your actions with the Constitution.

December 5, 2014 ~ A Title 42 U.S.C. § 1983 Action was filed in Federal Court

On December 5, 2014 I filed suit against Paul Chamberlain for ordering the theft of my personal property as I sat peacefully and quietly in the courtroom gallery when I was there to perform an administrative audit of the people's court.

When a judge orders the theft of personal property he is NOT acting in any judicial capacity.

When a judge orders armed men to carry out the crime of theft, neither he nor the henchmen (simply following orders) are acting in any official capacity and this creates a conspiracy.

How far have we digressed as a society to believe that some man in a robe (black dress) with a fancy wooden hammer gets to order and bully people around?

I was neither a Plaintiff nor a Defendant. I was quietly seated in the gallery observing. What didn't make it to the "official court transcript" was the fact that myself and others were given the ultimatum to either turn over our personal electronic devices or be escorted out of the courtroom and off the property.

While MY personal property was in adverse possession, it was tampered with and files were deleted. This converts petty theft to robbery. In addition to robbing me of personal property that was already on the device through the theft of the device itself, I was also robbed of the ability to create more personal property.

A seated "chief judge" ordered the petty theft of my personal property with the intent of robbing me of additional data property knowing that I intended to report on the results of my administrative audit of the court and of Paul Chamberlain.

Rules of the court, (Court Rules) are expected to be used to defend Paul Chamberlain's ordered theft of property knowing full well that the rules for the court are just that... rules for the court and the administration of the court and not rules to govern the public. Even if the rules made for the court itself could be applied in this instance, which it can NOT, the rules would violate the people's rights and the constitution itself making the "rules" void from the beginning as they would or might apply to the public and to we the people.

Paul has many hats. He wears the hat of the chief judge, the circuit court judge etc etc. He also wears his own hat in proper person, meaning himself as an individual. This is a hat that can NOT be removed and it lies under all the other hats. While hats worn in any official capacity offer protection (immunity), they cease to offer protection when the actions are not official. Wanton and intentional criminal acts can never be considered acts of an official acting in official capacity. If this were the case, Paul Chamberlain could order the execution of the teller in line 14 at Meijers on Christmas eve without any fear of prosecution.

I do not work for Paul Chamberlain, Paul Chamberlain works for me and for all the people of Isabella County Michigan.

Paul and the henchmen that were ordered to take my property and did so willingly, constitutes a concerted effort by state actors to deprive rights secured by both the state and federal Constitution under color of law. This is a federal crime as described in Title 18 U.S.C. §§ 241 and 242.

Why do I care if our county judges feel at ease while violating Federal criminal law? The better question would be, Why don't you care?

The complete subversion of our courts and of our entire legal system is well under way and is only made possible by the fact that YOU don't care.

Using a science analogy, creating a perfect vacuum outside the confines of space is nearly impossible. The closest we have come to creating a absolute vacuum is in our courts. People avoid our courts at all costs. There is a reason that our courts are public and that is so that the public can attend and audit. This is why seating is provided for you.

People so infrequently attend court proceedings that our judges and legislators are attempting to make it a crime! They call people attempting to observe public proceedings, "court watchers" as if this were some really bad thing. If you want to see a man in uniform make a really funny face, go to court and when approached by the bailiff and asked what case you are there for, tell him that you are there simply to monitor and audit the proceedings as an observer.

If you want to see real panic in a courtroom, do this with two witnesses.

Rules of court, administrative rules of judicial procedure and any other local "court rules" are rules for them and not for you (the public). When they (the courts) post signs, these signs are for the staff but the people (through ignorance) have come to believe that they are for the general public. This is like a sign at McDonald's that says you must remove your hat and place your order on one knee to get service. Would you do that? Do you take orders from McDonald employees? If not, why then, would you take orders from the employees of our corporate government who work for you and get paid by you? Are you or do you need to pay them to tell you what you can and can not do?

Getting back on point, how confident would Paul Chamberlain have been in ordering the theft of personal property from individuals in the gallery had their actually been people there observing besides myself, the defendant and the defendant's family?

If the court and Paul Chamberlain have nothing to hide, why then hide? The specific proceedings observed have transcripts in this case where it is clear that the public defender was working harder at prosecution than the prosecutor and in getting the defendant (his supposed client) convicted of crimes that weren't even crimes on warrants that weren't even lawful warrants on sworn affidavits by police without any first hand knowledge of anything! People can not swear out an affidavit of truth without first hand knowledge of the event but police in Mount Pleasant Michigan can?

How could this MASSIVE detail and it's significance to ALL of society allude you? How would you feel if a police officer swore and attested under the penalty of perjury that your husband or wife committed a crime and that this sworn affidavit was created by someone or by anyone without a shred of first hand knowledge of the allegations being sworn and attested to in the affidavit?

There is a saying in law. Those with a strong case argue the facts, those with weak cases argue the law and those with no case at all resort to calling names.

Isabella County "Corporate Officials" and "corporate state police" and "corporate county police" call me a bunch of names and the severity continues to increase.

1.) Confrontational

2.) A threat to myself and to others (suicidal and homicidal)

3.) Violent

4.) Almost forgot this one, corporate prosecutor Holmes I believe it was, while court was in session and I was peacefully seated in the gallery, pointed at me and called me "Mr. Militia".

5.) Violent Individual with the potential for some great violence (I would assume that this is like being a known terrorist or equivalent?)

Their has to be somewhere a "Corporate Standing Order" that mandates the preservation of the "Public Trust" at any and all cost regardless of it's criminality.

Although my issues are relatively simple, they do serve to undermine a "Public Trust" that in my opinion is not at all warranted.

Just as the Federal Reserve is a private, for profit corporation, so to are our local and state units of government. Just as the Federal Reserve has placed itself outside the the jurisdiction of the US government's ability to monitor and audit, so to are our corporate county and state units of government.

May 5, 2014 ~ Coming To A Head In Michigan

Many folks don't know what is really going on here in our local community. I used to be one of those that didn't know and honestly felt that I didn't have a need to care until my family was attacked by the Isabella County Sheriff Department and then by the Isabella County Courts.

Although our elected county officials are supposed to help the people, they are too busy helping themselves at the people's expense.

Once you have found yourself caught up in the gears of the system we call county government, you find that all the gears work together to keep the system running regardless of how it is running or where it is running.

For those of you that don't know, the allegations in the picture above are of a criminal nature and the making of false criminal allegations is, in-and-of itself, a crime. I have been making these criminal allegations now publicly for over three and a half years and although I have heard that I am being investigated for this "as a crime" I have not been charged with this or any other crime.

Instead, the gears in this system have all been working together to make me out to be some kind of criminal in an attempt to try and justify the criminal state actions against my family as if two wrongs could somehow make a right.

More than 1,600 of these fliers were handed out at the Maple Syrup Festival in Shepherd, MI where the county sheriff department has had a booth for as long as people can remember that was actually manned by the elected sheriff. This year however, the elected sheriff was not manning the booth and after my presence was felt, those working the booth simply left.

On at least six different occasions that I have come to learn about on my own, county, state and federal police (or other) reports have been generated with me as the subject of the report and all are related to my attempts to report crimes by police.
