We Will See if A Bad Ass Con Law Chick, Member of the United States Supreme Court Bar, Can Even Get an Interview!

Every since the day, I was admitted, or really, at the time my first brief was due for the United States Supreme Court, I have been targeted, harassed, chased, battered, beaten, intimidated, blown up, robbed, with attempted character assassination, from the Utah State Bar Association, who took bribes, I would venture a guess, that I was one of the attorneys, in the whole state of Utah, actually doing the things attorneys are suppose to do . . . preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution, vigorously defending my clients rights and their cases, and doing a shit load of pro bono!  I just never bothered to record the hours, they were about 900 behind the top attorneys in the state--as per awards at bar conferences!

So, while I am going back to get sworn in as a member of the High Court bar, the only court of original jurisdiction, under the U.S. Constitution, that is not recognized either in the state of Utah, or by the Utah State Bar Association, armed with not one Certificate of Good Standing, but fucking 3 or 4, since, the 3rd one was magically lost, and a fourth had to be acquired, the bribed, bought, and paid for Utah Bar, was entertaining a bar complaint from attorneys, who joke about ripping their clients off, of $5,000, while I am standing in for them in court, due to their absence, and my continued presence on the court dockets, as the clients attorney, with other court connections or previous representation, usually under paid and under appreciated, while the attorney, that just banked the money, is a no show, even on their first appearance . . . does anyone dare call it conspiracy?

RE: A Full Time Paralegal/Legal Assistant

I am sure that you are curious, as to why, an attorney with my experience, and work history, would consider a position as a paralegal/legal assistant . . . perhaps, the best way to describe it, is the fact that I used to be an Ivy Tower Attorney, working on legislation, writing grants, newsletters and manuals, training, among a large variety of things, prior to becoming a trial lawyer, with both civil and criminal experience, from small claims to the United States Supreme Court; however, I failed to actually be trained in the business side of the law, great lawyer, terrible business woman.

State & Federal Court Experience

In addition to that, I just jumped in a took on the world, with very little knowledge, bumbling through 228 pages of Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, at the same time I was dealing with 521 pages of evidence, betting a grasp of the facts, and writing the briefs, first in the case, Brock et al, v. Herbert et al, a $357 million securities case, against the Utah Governor, Attorney General, Director of the Department of Commerce, the Division of Securities, and going after 9 attorneys, and investigators, acting under color of law, while violating my clients, Brock and Rice, both financial planners, very successful, at that, being the first case I ever filed, in the United States Federal District Court of the District of Utah . . . with no one to train, teach, mentor, and just me alone, big mistake, doing a huge, widely followed, high profile case like that.

I guess you could say, that after hitting the United States Supreme Court level of law, it was like someone took a pin, and popped my balloon, or like climbing Mount Everest, and saying, now what?

Many Enemies, to Say the Least

Due to the nature of my clientele, and the caliber of defendants, the government, from local and state, cops, prosecutors, and judges, even, to federal agents, attorneys, and investigators, reaching entities, like Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, the states of Utah and Nevada, Utah National Guard, Las Vegas Review Journal, taking on the law firm of Williams and Colby, attorneys for Donald Trump, CNN and Fox News . . . just to name a few, with a high risk area of the law, that left me vulnerable, not quite defenseless, but lucky to be alive.

The last two years, have left me footloose and fancy free, except for worrying about my life on a daily basis, although, I have been writing a blog, entitled, bad ass con law chick blog or the governments version, bad ass con law chick blog, with about 5 other redirected Google accounts, that collect the hits, which have been as high as 155,000,000 before the blog was split, and as of last week, 67,000,000, which has been the most satisfying and far reaching in both impact, audience, and an agent for good, promoting constitutional law, and legal principles, as a means to educate the lay citizenry.  It has been a war, to say the least, with Google wanting hits, me refusing advertisement and pay, and the government trying to shut me down, censoring, or deleting what I am writing, when the blog is adverse to the Patriot Act, or other activities by law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, legislators, and whomever, up to and including the President.

High Risk Past--Behind the Scenes, Might Be the Right Place

I am controversial, at best, both hated and loved by both sides of the political aisle, feared by some, envied by others, and a victim of professional jealousy, target, and political and religious foe to the state of Utah, including the Utah State Bar Association, involved in a government sanctioned, character assassination or witch hunt, if you will.  So, after messing around for the last two and a half years, starting the day I was sworn into the United States Supreme Court Bar, in D.C., on January 23, 2012, my life has been less that settled.

As you can see, I know how to write, research, do legal briefs, file, and what not, so, my preferred choice right now, is to be behind the scenes, and help build your law firm, using my experience, expertise, skills, and knowledge, to be the secret weapon, when needed.  I hadn’t thought much about really doing anything with the law, right now, other than to possibly, do some risk management, consulting or public speaking . . . but, when I saw this ad, it caught my attention.

Own Boss for 14 Years, But Willing

Again, given the nature of my history, I have little but the clothes on my back, and a backpack, with make-up.  I had most everything, unlawfully taken from me, so, looking great, is not going to be much of an option, both until I get paid, or reach my real goal, to take some weight off.  Lest you think, I might think, myself above that position, today, I applied for a housekeeping person at a hotel.  I would like as much freedom, to work, write, research, and do what is needed.  But, whatever the job calls for, I am sure, I can buck up and get in the swing of things, both to regimentation and schedule.

When I first came to Montana, I spoke to the Montana State Bar Association, as to what I would need to do, to get license, they told me, given my experience, I could just write a letter to the Montana Supreme Court, and request permission to practice, or take the bar again, which I have not interest in doing.  I guess, if there was an emergency, I could go under the third year student provision, or paralegal, if that is available in Montana.  I really don’t want to go to court, but have absolutely no fear, after speaking to groups of 1300, and hundreds of people a week, at first I was offended that there was so little crowd, in a courtroom.

I realize, that this may be different than your normal paralegal, but I am not in it to make money, but to  make a difference.  You may want to read my political blog today, dealing with the ruling that just came out on immigration, and the unconstitutionality of some sections of the voters, referendum or ballot initiative . . . some comments, on 4th amendment, and other issues, regarding immigration, criminal law, and whatever.  I generally, just write, rarely if ever proofread, spell check, and let is loose to the universe, usually writing almost everyday.  I have written over 215 blogs, since September 25, 2013, so giving it up at this point is no big deal, if that is something the firm would like, or a condition for hiring.

Please consider, my sincere application and resume, and contact me if you feel, something could work out.

Thank You,

JoAnn S. Secrist, J.D.

Give Everyone $5 and You Will Be Popular

One time, Tyrone Southwick, youngest son, of my older sister, Shelley Southwick Yeman--not me, not the twisted sister, just sitting here typing my blog at Staples, in either Kalispell or Evergreen--came home from school, and some girl had told Ty that he would never be popular.  And I remember, Shelley, answering or telling Ty, that he would be popular, if he gave everyone in school $5!  And I think the woman had figured out the magic formula for stealing the hearts, minds, integrity, honesty, validity, and credibility of many--the way to win friends, and to cover a multitude of sins!  It is Sunday, that lesson will be coming!

To me, money is the root of all evil . . . the first talk I ever gave as a 4 year old, in the Mormon Church, when they had Sunday School, before the consolidated schedule, and each Sunday, a child was to give a 2 1/2 minute talk; mine was on the scripture, man cannot love God and Mammon, or money, either he will embrace the one, and run from the other, or cling to the one, and hate the other . . . God won in my small mind, at the time, and still won that battle, some 59 years later; however, my family must not have been listening to the budding career of their 4 year old, when she got her first audience, and gave her first public speech!

 Confederated Salish-Kootenai Transport

Your driver has gone to Ronan . . . what?  Um, your driver has gone to Ronan . . . Okay?

Last Sunday, my friend, John and I, went up and drove around, Hungry Horse Reservoir, I absolutely love the land owned by the Federation of Indians . . . we drove around the entire, huge ass, Lake, and it was pristine, wild, primitive, deserted, off the charts gorgeous, quiet, silent, deer running everywhere, as we wound around the massive Lake, there was a feeling that this must have been the way things were during the time the Natives roamed the streams, mountains, lakes, hunting bear, mountain lion, fox, elk, moose, while their women, gathered berries, watched children, and washed their skins of clothing in the breathtaking waters, in the shadows of the elegant islands, of rocks and pine trees, that mark various eddies and whirling pools, rock, pathways, taking them close to the water, where Tee Pees, would have marked tribal territories, fires, cooking, horses . . . a brave and noble people!

As we neared Spotted Bear, I was under the impression that it was a small fishing village of some sort, with a few restaurants . . . John, assured me that there were not restaurants . . . what?  Where are we going to eat, he just shrugged, we wait until we get back to Hungry Horse.  Okay.  We got to the campground, and it was not as well kept as the state parks or the Forest Service areas; however, there was something very authentic about is, pure, unadulterated, gentle, and more natural.  We got out of the car, and walked down to the swinging bridge, that John could remember from his childhood . . . one of the luckiest kids, who had parents that took him camping and hiking all over Montana, with both parents working for the school system, and having all summer off, to hang with their kids!  Priceless!

Spotted Bear Swinging Bridge v. Power Park Bridge, Rattlesnake Canyon

We hiked down to the bridge, that hadn't changed since John was young.  I loved it . . . just wooden planks, very secure, narrow, but a bit of give, enough to make it fun, with just wire fence, with big squares, so as not to block, the amazing view of the river, you felt like you were suspended over the water, almost like Peter, attempting a walk without help on the waves, very real, raw, and realistic . . . and right there!  I told John about the Plexiglas bridge, that took visitors to the Grand Canyon, out over the canyon, about 250 ft, if I remember, with the Indians, providing an exhilarating view of the canyon floor, that you can not get, even from a helicopter . . . this land is sacred to them and they have a need to share it, thank God!

It reminded me of another swinging bridge, that I fortunately got to visit, every year at Easter, the Bridge to Emerald Pool, in Zion National Park . . . we used to love to scare the shit out of each other, or cousins, our little brothers and sisters, by jumping, swinging, and causing as much turmoil, as the bridge could sustain, and then one year, we returned, as we did yearly, and the cool old wooden, swinging bridge, with so many memories, had been replaced by a more secure, metal or wood, metal combo . . . sacrificing freedom for safety, or just taking away fun!  I can't imagine a group of kids, so rambunctious, as me and my cousins, a herd of us, and no one ever fell, got hurt, even fell down, because you knew, that you had to hang on for dear life!  So, what is up with the change?

John, who is only about 5'4" and I, 5'7" or so, both walked up to the Power Park Bridge, that was made of steel and iron, massively secure bridge, with no give in the walk way . . . I could barely look over the, what I would say is the equivalent of the helicopter parent, but in bridge form, this bridge that was so secure, so injury proof, and big brother, big sister, type, protectiveness, that you can hardly enjoy the water below, and the bridge is useful, but is not fun . . . I don't even think John attempted to look over the bridge, he had to peek through the metal, 8 inch moldings that secured the bridge . . . no fun at all!

So I was glad to see that the Indians, had preserved the original bridge, or at least one, that was just as functional, and tons more fun, one that gives you a thrill to be on, and is a delight to stand and look over, feeling so free, that you are just right there!  Thanks for an amazing drive!  Believe me, parents since the beginning of time, are watching, protecting, and yelling at kids, to be careful, watch what they are doing, so just a cool bridge, is enough, let parents do the rest!

New Native American Indian War Memorial

Much like the Vietnam or other war memorials, Custer's last stand, and monuments like that, now the Indians, have fought to get their own memorial, listing the names of their ancestors, who fought for their land, their way of life, for their people, the animals and land they loved.  It is about time!  Just because they were on the other side of the American Indian Wars . . . their ancestors, were no less brave, courageous, tenacious, and valiant, in their cause!  

This new memorial is going to be, or is, located in North Dakota, if I remember right.  It sounds like the founders or supporters, had to fight long and hard to get the approval on this project.  I do, know that one thing that the Montana state Constitution says, is that the schools, need to teach about the Native American Culture, preserve it, and educate all school children of what history teaches, about the people, the pride, the lifestyles, the hunting, fishing, language, customs and culture . . . showing respect, and reverence for the beauty of what this nation loves, lost, preserves for us, to enjoy now, and we are the better for it.

If you have not seen a Pow Wow . . . you are really missing out!  My daughter, Nicole, was on the city track team when she was young, her best friend, an Indian girl, was also, her stiffest competition!  But she invited us to attend a Pow Wow, and WOW, is was so cool, the drums, the dress, the war paints, the chanting, the rings they dance through, so cool, take advantage of those that are part of summer and fall celebrations throughout one of the 6 Indian Reservations around the state of Montana!  And don't forget to eat some Indian Fry Bread and Indian Tacos!  SO GOOD!

Missoula Undersheriff, Josh Clark--They Just Throw the Tickets in Our Faces!  LOL!

While me and the other passengers, on the CSKT or the shuttle, were waiting for our driver to get back from Ronan, myself and this other guy, were laughing about an article about the overcrowding in the jails and what to do with the homeless and the street people, who go through the jails, like they are revolving doors, and could care less, getting a warm night stay and a free meal, then go right back out and do the same thing again!  I shouldn't laugh, but I used to sit at the Break Cafe on Higgins, in Missoula, and write my blog each day, watching the circus across the street!

There were a group of about 4 Indians, who regularly sat at an empty, or partially empty business building across the street, from the Break . . . inevitably, some frustrated shop owner, would call the cops, usually the bike cops, and he would try to get this yahoos, under control.  But they were having none of that, and soon as second officer, would come and try to talk some sense into them, but to no avail.  LOL!  It was always a show, and took forever, if it was resolved at all.  These regulars, knew the game, knew what they were doing was ticket material, not a serious crime, so they would just bug the hell out of the cops, who generally, don't have much of a sense of humor on these things.  LOL!

So, I guess a group of community members got together and held a POW WOW, on what to do with this unruly crew.  Who, Josh Clark, the candidate for sheriff, who I wanted, like a true Montanan, just told it like it is . . . that these Indians, just laugh and throw the tickets back in the cops faces!  LOL!  

What is even more funny to me, is that I, somewhat, know of the personalities on both sides . . . the Indians, often eat and hang out at the Poverello Center, everyone knows them, and digs them, hangs with them, laughs and talk to them and we walk around the town.  And having worked with cops, and been somewhat involved in the sheriff's elections, or interested, and feeling strongly about the position, getting a bit of a feel for the type of man, Josh Clark is, to me, striking me as nicer than the average sheriff, at least from his frustration and wanting to be fair to these wild Injins, really pretty cool, but getting caught between the shop owners, who see them as a nuisance, and want them vacated, Clark may be glad to turn the problems over to the sheriff elect, McDermott!  LOL!

Like the Very Christian People, Montanans Are . . . Someone Set Up a Couch for This Crew!

One day, after a particularly long exchange between the cops and the sidewalk surfers, someone set up a couch, right near where these guys and gals, hang out!  LOL!  Now at first, I thought it might have been the cops, themselves, who out of frustration, decided to somewhat clean up the streets, but then I thought, nay! And is seemed like, I just got up and went to the restroom, and came back and the couch was gone!  LOL! I figured the cops, where going to have none of this, didn't want someone to encourage their apparent, bad behavior, and egg then on, to sit on the street more than they already do!  LOL!

Right after that, I noticed that the Indians, started to take their naps, out in the back alley . . . one of the Indian Princesses, still treated like that by the boys of the streets, always, greets me, and brings a big smile to my face . . . I, much like the cops, know, that they are as harmless as a deer, but still get pressure from the angry shop owners.  You have to wonder, what putting them on the reservation has done to their pride, their ambition, their lives, their children, the government pay check . . . I just don't know?  I really dig them! I have the heart and soul of a moccasin . . . I love nature, like they do, the trees, the water, the pines, the mountains, . . . I find and hold sacred also, thanks for making us see it through your eyes on the Rez and the Federated Lands!

The Hellgate Treaty of 1855, Is a Great Compromise

Thank heaven for rational leaders, like Governor Bullock and Attorney General, Tim Fox . . . I republished my analysis of the Hellgate Treaty, which is really all we need, even today, in 2014, to solve the water issues, on the Flathead Irrigation Indian Project, the jurisdictions, rights and responsibilities are all spelled out, not only in the Treaty itself, but the analysis, I prepared for several members of the legislature and some interested groups around the Flathead Lake and range lands, that depend on the water for irrigation.  But these two men, said, they think it is possible to make all parties happy, without the pending lawsuits that were filed in February, 2014 . . . we simply don't need to litigate this . . . I know there are egos, that are at stakes, careers, etc., but really at the risk of messing this up for generations?

After I did the first constitutional and statutory analysis, before going to the Montana Legislature, I was asked to either review, Senator, Verdell Jackson's, newspaper, opinions, or take some of the material provided by the group, Concerned Citizens of the Flathead.  When I am asked to do an analysis of this sort, on a constitutional law issues, or a treaty, I have no preconceived notions of the outcome, nor do I side with one side or the other . . . I simply, read the document, look up words and definitions, apply my knowledge of water, constitutional, and statutory law, coming from a background in all of those areas, and give it my most educated shot at the material, not favoring, or representing anyone!

The Treaty says what it says, the constitutions say what they say, the law, states, what it says, in light of intent, history and plain language, with definitions to help with the understanding of the law!  I don't feel a need to do, represent, or favor, one side in this controversy over another . . . a good compromise, always, gives both parties something, and requires both parties to give up something in exchange.  The Constitutions are compromises, between the represented parties of the day, and they did a hell of a job, making sure that everyone got pissed and also got something, but not everything!  And that is exactly what this controlling Hellgate Treaty does!  And does so, well!  You can't beat it . . . the Gov, and AG, both attorneys, can see that all parties can be happy, simply by following what the Treaty says, or that is my take on what newspapers articles say!

Careers that Fit--Water Compact Frauds

While I was living in Missoula, my landlord, Tony Osthemeier, a rancher up around 9 Pipes, in St. Ignatius, asked me if I would write a law brief for him, suing or interpleading or joining in the lawsuit, filed by the Attorney General or cross, claiming, as a John Doe, with standing, in the lawsuit, filed by the Indians, he also wanted me to write a letter, or do, a constitutional analysis of the water compact.  I gave him all the files I had done, except for the one, for the legislature, that I did at the State Law Library and didn't get a copy, for NSA interference, and I was lucky to get a cut and paste on, to Krayton Kearns, head of the House Judiciary Committee, I reported in April 20, 2012, video tapped, for evidence, if gone, messed with, but I informed Tony, that many people, most of them he knew, personally, had copies of all my analysis, because I kept them in the loop, so to say, with any water compact issues that I did, or analyzed.

I also told him to read the Hellgate Treaty of 1855, that I had just posted again, or for the first time, other than sending it by email to Verdell and others in the controversy.  I remember, Verdell coming to me, and grilling me, on whether or not I was loyal to the ranchers . . . I thought that was a strange question, since to me, the law, is the law, is the law!  The Constitution, is the Constitution is the Constitution! Likewise, with the Treaty!  I in very specific terms, call it like I interpret it, coming from a somewhat, educated and informed background, in many of the areas, that are needed to do such an analysis!  I don't know it that was the answer, he wanted . . . one side or the other!  Damn it, we need to know if you are on our side, and asked, what would happen if the Indians, paid me to join them . . . my analysis would be the same!

I was really glad, a few weeks ago, at a Tea Party meeting I attended with Tony, where constitutional law attorney, and former professor, Nadahl . . . not sure how to spell it, but he said, he took the same approach, that whatever way the dice rolls, coming out this way or that, was not his aim, it was simply to get it right according to the Constitution!  I couldn't have agreed more with him.  I am not some one's hired gun, I was asked to use my skill, education, and knowledge to analyze it, and I did!  I gave Tony all that I had, said I would not do it again, since I never got paid anyway, and had already done about 8 briefs, or analysis, out of the goodness of my heart, and wanting to help the people of Montana . . . and they had all they needed from me!

The Cover-Up is Always Worse Than the Crime--Identity Theft is a CRIME!

So, Tony gets pissed off at me, because I am wise to his game . . . he wants me to do another analysis, so the originals, back in March and April of 2014, that I did for Carolyn Soloman, had been claimed by my government doubles, either Kay, Rachel, Shelley, or Sue . . . they are expendable and interchangeable, because, you see, when I got involved in the medical marijuana issues, the November before, after attending a presentation at the Whitefish Library, on the document, Code of the West . . . I was chased out of the area, allegedly died in Hamilton, the fall of 2012, so Shelley or Kay were moved up to take credit, for my work and analysis of that issue, so they could not let me do the water compact, because that would reveal the lies of the medical marijuana!

Carolyn, Claire, and several others, not to mention, Verdell, know, damn, well who I am, so does Jerry O'Neill, and several others, whom I just saw, Friday, at the Republican Pachyderm meeting, with Clerk of the Court, Peggy Allison . . . covering for Judge Allison, no reflection or connection of the final outcome and what the transcripts or the trial was on . . . probably had to claim on the of the cover girls, did it too, because, I wrote the first 20 page brief, followed by another 28 page brief, that Peggy would not admit, which was simply taken to my client's home, and what I had written on her computer, and long gone by now, was, as usual, given credit to another woman!  LOL!

I not only embarrassed the judge, but attorney, Duodis, too, and we gave copies to many attorneys, and people around town . . . but, the superior writing, of a United States Supreme Court level, was attributed to either my client, or one of the gals in the Flathead, who was placed there cover any work I did, either past, present, or future!  Nice!  They could not do this in 200 years!  LOL!  Tony knows that too, that is why he did the high pressure job, yelling at me, that the ranchers would lose if I wouldn't do my analysis . . . I already did, they just wanted the email date, to be later, than my original, because they already said it was the cover girl, my sister, who was taken to the ranch after me, or my other sister, switch-o-change-o, according to what works best . . . a big fat, NO!

The History Lesson/Non-Constitutional, Non-Water Law, Non-Statutory Analysis!  LOL!

I always like to give these guys enough rope to hang themselves with it.  Tony gives me some piece of shit, history of all the water meetings, or the historic look at where the project has been, where it is, and maybe what should happen, totally lacking any substantive legal, constitutional, or statutory law, little case law, nothing about the Treaty, the controlling document . . . I just laughed, and wrote my critic of the history lesson, and wished them all luck, whom ever paid for this, got fucked!

Careers that Fit . . . Shelley has a degree in biology; Kay a shitty attorney in personal injury; Rachel, is a flight attendant, or waitress in the sky; and Sue is a history and political science major . . . take your pick!  LOL!  I have seen Kay fired from the only job or trial I saw, I had to finish her job and won the motion!  She couldn't do anger management, nor teach my family law class!  LOL!  Nice picks for replacements!

I told Tony, who took me up to his ranch once, wined and dined me, but made sure I sat right out in front of his ranch, on a tractor or lawn mower, while he mowed the lawn . . . letting surveillance get a good look at me?  Seem to be, I didn't jump at the prospect of sleeping with him, therefore, the destruction, fraud mode kicks in . . . like all of his buddies of that era and age . . . LOL!  I am no broad, no dame, just one smart cookie, whoops, that is one of my symbols for Kay, I am not just another pretty face!  I am sure, he had one of the cover girls, up to the ranch, with a wig or just Rachel, with a similar hair cut . . . one of the paid crew, at Walmart, would not cut my hair short, twice!  

Had to keep it long like Shelley's, Kay's, or Rachel's . . . oh, hell, NO, found a woman in Kalispell, at Great Clips to do it!  I told Tony, when the ranchers, want to lay down $10,000, we might have something to talk about . . . another attorney, without the background I have, having already researched and written on the water compact, wouldn't look at it for less . . . he yelled at me, know it would cost $15,000 . . . well that is even better!  Pay up or shut up . . . I see what a gift got me, fucked, substituted, lied about, and the cover girls, got paid for their shit!

With This Pathetic History of Fraud, I Might Just Join the Legal Team of the Indians--I Respect Them More!

That might be the only way, I expose the Temple Decor, or the Best Tattoo Parlor . . . about as clean!  LOL!  That might be an interesting stand-off . . . irrigators history degrees, against, a member of the United States, Supreme Court Bar, and constitutional law attorney, worked with the nation's expert in water law, while in law school, Kay aka JoAnn, flunked his tort class, I was Professor Ray Jay Davis's research assistant and teaching assistant . . . not to be confused with Shelley Southwick Yeman, whatever the hell she is . . . fucking twisted sister, wants to be me so bad, she aches . . . may be we should ask, Mayor Mark Johnson, he has seen me, including Friday, at the Pachyderm meetings, or maybe Tammy Fisher, former, mayor, or now, Senator Tester, Tracy Stone-Manning got a nice promotion to Montana Energy Department Director . . . she met me several times, got my resume, so did the Helena and Kalispell staff . . . ask any of these people who is the real JoAnn S. Secrist . . . reporting right here, from Super I, in Kalispell, at 9:59 p.m.

Enemies in Wolves Clothing

I had a brief encounter with Bozeman, one night, a day or two before the 2012 elections, but the fascination continued, right up to last December, when Fresh Life Church, talked about starting a satellite campus down in Bozeman, and had a special prayer meeting, to decide which way was best to meet the spiritual needs of the students, families, and citizens of Bozeman.  I first noticed just a note on the videos, that the Church, shows, while everyone is getting seated, after greeting each other . . . now, other than attending church on Sunday, I have little other contact with it during the week, no small groups, holding a position, or really wanting more than a spiritual lift each Sunday, and rock with Jesus, a band, and singers, united in devotion, adoration, and praise of the amazing mission of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I have been wondering around this state, and several others, in search of meaning, purpose, goals, and what to do next . . . it is an interesting phenomena, to have the next 30 years of your life planned, and have someone, or a group of someones, or a force beyond your control, totally eviscerate those plans, not once, or twice, but more like three, four, and possible, counting this time, five times.  There is anger, chaos, turmoil, loss, a lack of faith, devastating emotions, of the thought of starting over, of making money, again, after being a big time winner in the law, but getting little, if any of the rewards . . . my son, Elliot, of the band, God's Revolver, and his band members, can come the closest to understanding what I am talking about . . . basically, what is the point?

But for some reason, that day, my eyes landed on just a single line announcement about the meeting about starting the Church in Bozeman, and something clicked.  There have been other meetings, group activities, and events, that I have planned on attending, but haven't cared enough to remember, go, or even think about again, but this kick off in Bozeman, was very different, I looked forward to it, thought about it, anticipated it, and couldn't wait, until the meeting, even thought about going down, and doing missionary work, which I always dreaded the thought in the Mormon Church . . . maybe it was the statistics that I got, like 50% of the people in Bozeman are under the age of 24, and the event last night, the block party, was definitely put on by young people, and they did a great job!

Sharing the Gospel with the Already Saved!  LOL!

Maybe it is because I relate to students, having taught at 3 colleges, and there is a college there, or I know what Christianity, a simple church has done for my life, and want to share.  So, after attending the meeting, I slammed out several blogs, and made sure I made it to the kick off invitation to community members to come join the Fresh Life Church Family . . . associate, within the fold, in the arms of Jesus, so to say.  I am not sure what it is, but there was really a bond, for some reason, a vested interest, and the feeling of wanting to go there.  

Yesterday, as I interacted with store clerks, non-profit organizations, waiters in fast food restaurants, watched the fun last night, the cool relational interaction between these exceptional young people, the invitation to join in, on several levels, from political, to community board service, to interacting with the Montana Attorney Generals Office on joint goals and plans for the less fortunate in the community, something, the caring, the joy, the carefree dress, laughter, fun, celebrating just having a good time, all ages, and all interactions, maybe it was sitting in the middle of the auction, not knowing what in the hell was going on, and having, person after person assure me, I was not in their way, or the nice, beautiful girl who put her hand, on my back, and assured me through touch, of total acceptance, not only for where I was sitting, but just for being me, at the event . . . just shear joy, to just sit and people watch! 

Perhaps, My Time In Kali, is Done--Mission Accomplished?

I would go to Helena, and come back to Kalispell, go to Missoula, and the same, return to Kalispell, or visit Great Falls, and always, always, come back to Kalispell . . . there must have been some type of spell for me, but I came; however, lately, I haven't felt that pull, and in fact, that opposite is true, each time I came back, the connection felt less, the draw and power of the attraction, was waning, or so it seemed.  The today, while I was on the bus, I told Lance about the amazing bus system in Bozeman, runs until 2:30 am on weekends, and even has special pick ups, for after hours, and can get you 30 miles out of town!

Then, it was strange, right after that, a guy called from Bozeman, returning my phone call about a storage unit, of all the strange things, I must have had some creative plans for it, because it caught my eye . . . but his phone call, so honest, good, true, well meaning and gracious, made me think even more about the city, favorably, of course, then I am applying for a position at a law firm, the first feeling, that it is time to get back into the practice of law, but from an angle I hadn't thought of before, and I was excited, and even looking forward to working again . . . I have a love and passion for the law, in its purity!

I have been kicking around these parts of the state, for almost 2 years, but almost one, pretty exclusively; however, every time I come, there is another disconnect with alleged friends, that seem to be in bed with my enemies, and distancing, if you will, that quantum physics thing, if you will.  Like is attracted to like, we each seek our own, so we have nobody to blame, but ourselves, if we are attracting people we don't like--either it is a fatal attraction, or a misfit, because, what appeared to be truthiness, was actually, quit the opposite!

And That is All I am Going to Say!


Pods, Alias, CIA Hunters, Boats, Planes, Buses & Trains

I just got back from a great, but harrowing trip to Bozeman, Montana, currently sitting at McDonald's, Golden Arches, on Liberty and Broadway, in Missoula, Montana--always have to write where my 40 is--that is a term used in the military, to let your troops, or commanders, know your location, because, usually these Zip Trips, are my attempt to skunk out my doubles, without them knowing, at least for an hour or so that I am gone, so I through off their 24/7 shadow, covering my actual identity, with 1 of 7 or more woman at any given time or location, with Me, Myself, and I, the only one who has to make the purposeful movement and motion, hoping to God, that someone, within a cop agency, who is watching me, who might actually believe my story, that is so outlandish, that I would have a hard time, believing is myself . . . until I factor in a billion dollars, jail time, heads rolling up to the highest level of government and church!  Then it all makes sense!

Hackers are attempting to cut in on my blog, right now . . . that is another ploy they use, when I write, they hack, steal the blog, scan it, making an instantaneous switch from my computer ID by means of my IP, that identifies what I am doing, plus, my locations, if, well, now that cops are illegally, unconstitutionally, and criminally, using the new technology of Stingray, warrantless searches and seizures of your cellphone and computer location, using technology, that is contradictory to Supreme Court case law . . . I might not mind, if they actually used it to solve a crime, rather than using it to break the law, and promote the very identity theft, that has been going on for 14 years, since I was poisoned, allowing my sister, Shelley, now many other sisters, and attorneys, use my ID and name, while stealing all my ID, through the Pod People . . . the cluster of team players, who have formerly been lovers, associates, clients, friends, landlords, bosses, judges, cops, bosses, and family members, if not children and their spouses, giving the thieves a 360 degree of protection, and me with a 360 degree threat!

Pods Are Bought & Paid For

Since I am heading to Kalispell next, I will use that pod of people, who started out as friends, clients, clients kids, friends of clients kids, girlfriends of clients kids, and their friends, could be pizza delivery boys, who just happen in once and a while . . . so, you have an army at any given location, who will lie about who is who. So here is the Kalispell pod . . . John or Jack King Strode (Ware) hits on me the first day I am in Kalispell, now given the fact that he seems to be able to show up out of thin air, should be some kind of a clue, because, I have purposefully, come and gone, to catch him with his pants down too . . . too far away to get back, so he is in an extended stay at a remote hospital, just moved, not taking calls.

Sam Farmer, Jack's cover boy, substantiates all the cover up lies, explaining his wear abouts, allegedly a 10 year friend of Jack, while other contacts of mine, report, that they barely have known who he is for maybe two years, if that, and that is a bus driver, until she too, is compromised.  Then as my circle of influence and acquaintances, spreads, the circle of bribes, does too, following the pattern exactly, and rapidly.  Next, Georgeanna Darrow Hartunge, I met a the church that Jack tried to get me to go to for 5 months, who became a client, then their is the pastor and his wife, Dennis and Debbie, got to cover all your bases, one slip and the fraud is toast, and believe me, when the penis is involved with the double, they protect their sex interest, while, even more vehemently going against me, who has not only sexually shunned them, jilted them, but is now telling bus drivers and friends, to warn me, when they are on the bus . . .

At Least the Sisters are Consistent, One Puts Out for the Government and Their Men--One Kicks Shit Out of the Government and Their Men!  Not Hard To Figure Out!

What complicates most clients, is that I allegedly don't exist, the double is me, but I jumped into the case, before the double had a chance to cover their asses, but the big boys, with their dicks in their alleged golden pachangs, have a personal stake in the game and cover-up, so they even bring in CIA judges, have predetermined court outcomes, that don't reflect for a second what actually happened in court, nor are reflected on the court transcripts, you know, just some of those things that should make it clear to even the greenest agent, but somehow, all of that, goes missing to the cognative processes, like DNA testing, lie detector tests, and some instruments and tools, that would be part of any routine foundation for any case . . . but never in this one!  It is so simple to prove who is the mother of my four children . . . DNA!

The pod circle expands, as my contacts expand . . . other members of the Kalispell pod, David Hartonge, son of Georgeanna, trying to pass him off as mine, God forbid; then John Bagby, Jen, and Jen, Dave and John's girlfriends, Meryl, Roger, roommates of mine and Dave's . . . then Jen's new squeeze, Mark, to Georgeanna's husband Ron, and her daughter, who was a Flathead County Sheriff for 7 years, bringing in the cops, and the pod grows, all substantiating the lie, and sticking it to me . . . hot deals, money, perks, favors, and pay offs!

Cluster of Pod People

Southwick family, with spouses of children--hackers are getting desperate, as I expose their most ardent supporters, my sons and daughter in law, LOL . . . best way to hurt the big boys, is hurt their most vulnerable, who have much more than money to lose!  Extended Southwick family, like cousin, Edward, and the other roughly 150 members or more, church members, neighbors . . . those upstanding Southwicks, and that rebel daughter, always causing trouble with the church, fighting polygamy, Mitt, Utah, and all we hold sacred and dear!  Not hard!

Deep dark secrets, formed long before I came on board, connecting sister Shelley, to Utah Division of Securities, and Department of Commerce, was a rat for the government, but sister, JoAnn, has the skills needed to pull of the coup of the century, the Brock/Rice securities heist . . . fleecing the American tax payers, and state, who, would not support Mitt Romney, no way, no how, with judges in Utah, double docketing the case, win outside of Utah, lose, for me personally, case terminated, with no reason, after winning 7 ways, and at all levels, so Clark Waddoups, just up and closed the case!

But a lose is not what the nation of financial planners is seeing coming out of the Utah courts, a win of $357 million, with only 6% of that payoff, coming from the Utah tax payers, and fans of Mitt's, however, the other states, through a nationwide, insurance pool, to disperse the cost and loss of one state's lawsuit, making all states share in the damages, because all states, benefit from the win, due to improving the securities system, but the other 94% comes from the rest of the state, that, had they known the gamesmanship, from some smart financial planners, CPA's, using the amped up brain power and knowledge of one constitutional law attorney, number 2 in the nation for civil rights defense . . . but bringing the cover girls, to sign the deal, wigs and all, because, hell, they already took over my e-filing accounts at the US Federal District Court, in the District of Utah, giving a non-attorney, Shelley, with the help of Kay Burningham, access, with the aid and comfort of the FBI, taking all IT people out of the building . . . can you see how easy!

I bet the states who supported President Obama, Democrats, would be furious, to know, that in my opinion, was a staged case, with a predictable outcome, giving a slush fund of $118 million, with federal courts in Utah, in on the gaming, not that I didn't deserve the win, but the means don't justify the end, especially, when the key player, the attorney, ME, was cut out of the contingency fees, so bad boys, Hank, Jay, Mitt, the Southwick pod, all get a cut, but they knew damned will, I was too moral to go that way . . . just like Clint Eastwood, in the movie, TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE . . . attorney daughters, with professional and personal morals, just will not go along with the plan, just a part of the used and abused!

Bozeman Cowboys & California Movie Stars--Great Town!

Last night, I attended a block party, to raise money for a local clearinghouse for the needy and elderly--absolutely magical, up to an including the local cops . . . no babysitting the crowd, and the crowd didn't give any reason for a presence, very refreshing!  The party was creatively advertised through, chalk notes, on the sidewalks of Main Street, Block Party, $10, Blue Grass, bring your Mom . . . 6 to 10 . . . no arrests for graphitti, no charges for destruction of public property, cops know that will wash off with the first summer rain storm!  Holy shit, someone legalized freedom!  How awesome!

This appeared to be a team effort of the 20 to 30 crowd, all pitching in, boyfriends, friends, band members, restaurants, local photographers, who let young professionals, get their kid on, with costumes, for picture taking and lovin on friends, kids, girls on girls, guys with arms around old friends, that have become family through college and now, apparently running the parties, that are so cool, doing what chic girls, and cool guys do to help, those less fortunate in their community!  What a party . . . I would guesstimate, about 700 to 1,000 came and went, responsibly drinking, eating, laughing, dancing, goofing around, and hanging around to savor the fun of the evening, that combined good deeds, with good clean fun, for all!

To My Surprise and Delight, There Was No Cop Presence--No Offense, But You Can Damper any Party!  LOL!

I got off the bus, at 2:30 a.m., cruised around the streets, un-bothered, not stopped, without probable cause, just to harass, stopping me, just to let me know I am on their radar screen . . . like in so many towns, that seem to be forewarned by the cop mafia, that I am heading to their jurisdiction.  I didn't even see a cop, until after the party was over, about 11:30 p.m., while clean-up was taking place, but with several local clubs, still raging to the music, and drinking, when a police, peacemaking presence, might be warrented, and even wanted, as young co-eds, and others walk home from a fun evening.

I stopped by, I believe, a local business, with one in Helena, and Bozeman, the Pita Pit, which to my fun shock, was open until 3 a.m.!  For someone, who frequents towns, after a long bus or train ride, arriving hungry and at odd hours of the night, it is nice, that someone, besides, Motel 6, leaves the lights on for you, and the grills on!  I made a comment on how cool the cops in the town appeared to be, and the excited to brag, Bozemanite, said, oh, that is nothing, tomorrow night is the weekly streetfest, with music and drinking . . . the cops, actually rope off a large section and open container laws are either suspended, or frozen, for all the people who want to listen to music and drink!  WOW . . .

In Whitefish, at the Winter Festival, this year, in typical Nazi style, the local cops, walked up to festival goers, and literally stopped the fun, by even asking coffee drinkers to take the lids off their coffee cups, so the Gestapo, could check to see if those coffee cups, were really a cover for alcohol!  So, hats off to you officers, keep the faith, Whitefish PD, you don't have anything on Iron County, Utah . . . a girl got thrown in jail for 83 days, for having an empty bottle of Vodka, she was saving in her car, to use as a house decoration, was originally stopped for failing to signal for the full 2 seconds on a lane change . . . 

Really, you can, seriously, time that, Ms. cop with the pink handcuffs, who ordered the victim out of her car, when all her husband's work and legal paperwork, on none other than the new, NSA building, in Lehi, jumped out to chase the papers in the wind . . . and was arrested for resisting arrest and an officer, later was poisoned in jail, almost causing her to go blind, because she wouldn't testify against Haylee Cheeks!  One of my 3 plaintiffs in the civil right suit against the cops!

Grade A+ on Bozeman for First Impressions

A lively downtown area, clean, charming, old time western feel, bare back, bronc horse, decor on Main Street, no empty buildings, flowers, lamp post flags, fun windows, sidewalk cafes, restaurant smells, wafting from the locally owned and operated shops, a free bus service that gets you up to 30 miles out of town, beautiful setting for the town . . . gotta go catch a bus, will be back, maybe permanently!

Obviously, Very Impressed!

Hops & History in Bozeman--Tonight's Talk, Goats and Stars: German Brewing Traditions in the American West

It is really fun, to contrast and compare different states, their histories, traditions, politics, constitutions, the people, legislatures, churches, and alcohol practices.  You would never see, and article like, A brewing tradition: Beer has starring role in history of Montana, the West, on the front of any newspaper, in Mormon Church controlled, Utah, with 3.2 water beer, limited liquor licenses for restaurants, laws prohibiting serving beer before the food is served, with beer cops; state run liquor stores, that don't open until 11:00 a.m., no beer sales on Sunday . . . you get the picture!

While I am not a beer or alcohol drinker, a Teetotaler, as my daughter, Greta Secrist Hyland, states in her article in Utah Adventure Magazine, entitled 3.2, or her comment on small town, rural Utah, with little to invite visitors, by way of night life, or available beer, alcohol, etc., as she stated on her blog, The Southwest Journal, I do respect a person, not of the faith of my youth, to enjoy a beer or other drinks of an alcoholic content, after a hard bike ride on Slick Rock Trail, in Moab, or after hiking in Arches!  There is a great country song, that is kind of culture shock for a young, Tennessee cowboy, travelling around the world for the first time, that people don't all watch NASCAR, sing Amazing Grace on Sundays, drink an ice cold beer, etc.

Missing One Key Element to Successful Restaurant--Liquor License!

Many a good restaurant, like the Red Dog Grill, up highway 18, near Dammeron Valley, that used to have great food, homemade pies, fresh cut fries, and locally grown beef, but lacked the one key ingredient, it needed to survive, in this tourist town, close to Zion National Park, and the Golden Circle, of national and state parks, within a 100 mile radius of St. George, Utah--a state of Utah liquor license, their survival, she told me a year or so, before the grill closed, not for lack of good food, but because they could not serve a beer with the steak!

The St. George, Iron Man, went from a full day event to a half day event, same issues, great place, nice people, beautiful scenery, but visitors had a hard time with no night life, or access to beer and alcohol, a long held resistance in Mormon Utah, the state sanctioned religion, I guess Congress shall have no, law respecting the establishment of religion; however, the shockingly unconstitutional state of the state, in Utah, has an even stronger prohibition in their own state constitution!  But I guess, Prophet, Joseph Smith, was just joking when he came up with the Mormon, Articles of Faith, when he suggested obeying the laws of the land!

People thirsty for knowledge of Montana history . . . can attend the second event in the museum series tonight from 5 to 7 p.m.  The $5 admission includes a free glass beer tasting and a short history talk at 6 p.m. Patrons, must be over the age of 21, even in Montana . . . it is until death for the drinking age in Utah!  LOL!

Montana's Constitutional Attitude v. Utah's Unconstitutional Attitude

Don't confuse, Utah with the facts, when it comes to the constitution, I have tried for 20 years, to no avail! The District Judge from Montana, gets it . . . the 10th amendment in the U.S. Constitution, protects states from an overbearing, overreaching, federal government, but is also, curtails, and limits, states rights, doctrine, starting with the rights, granted the federal government, expressly written in the document, itself . . . leaving all else to the states and the people!


Rights Retained By The States and the People

The powers not delegated to t[5he United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved for the States respectively, or to the people.  As is generally, the case, there is more than one section, or level of analysis, that must be considered to come to the right constitutionally based, conclusion, holding, or ruling, in addition to law, statute, or proposed bill, before the legislature, or issue, coming before the court.  With the third branch of the government, under Article III, the judiciary, in the two landmark cases, of the United States Supreme Court, stating, in Marbury v. Madison, 1803, A law repugnant to the Constitution, is void.  Followed by the other prong of the test of constitutional laws, coming from McCulloch v. Maryland, 1819, finding, by way of interpretation, the court's job, the need to Let the end be legitimate . . . and all means which are . . . consistent with the letter and spirit of the Constitution, are constitutional.

There person, doing the interpretation or constitutional analysis, must actually either be familiar with the Constitution, or know, where to look, or where to find, the law, the supreme law of the land . . . starting with the three branches of government, at the first of the document . . . Article I, deals with the legislative branch, or Congress; Article II, is where to find the executive branch, under the President; and Article III, gives the details on the judicial branch, the three branches of the federal government, the balance of powers.

The first thing a student of the Constitution would do, or a scholar would do, is research the various branches of government and see if the power, we are wondering about, is actually, even mentioned in the Constitution itself.  Article I, Section 8, the section dealing with the powers of Congress, there is an exhaustive list of what those powers, consist of . . . [4]  To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization, now, I know, that word, is talking about the immigration process, or becoming a natural citizen, which is also mentioned in the 14th amendment, Section 1.  All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

So, We Can See That Naturalization or Immigration, With the Process of Naturalization, is One of the Powers, that Belongs to the Federal Government, Through Congress

In Article I, Section 3, I believe, of the Utah Constitution, it mentions that Utah is an inseparable part of the Union, and the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, whether, you like it, believe the Mormon Church rules, or you have wiggle room on this issue, or you don't like Hispanics or other emigrants!  Anything more or less than the Constitution, holdings in cases, before the United States Supreme Court, or courts of inferior jurisdiction, also courts of general jurisdiction, who might be called to make a constitutional call on a statute or law, adopted by the legislature or the people, through a referendum or ballot initiative, is not an option!  

The law is the law, is the law . . . know your rights!

A particular religious belief, or personal prejudice, common attitudes, customs, and cultural ideas and morals, have nothing to do with a constitutional analysis . . . is it any wonder, Christ was without honor in his own hometown . . . that is the carpenters son!  I have tried to get this point over to the state of Utah, for 20 years, in meetings, legislative committees, in the courts, on the streets, and in the schools . . . she is a BYU law graduate, Dick and Helen's daughter!  I don't care if I am the Tooth Fairy . . . the law is the law!  This is not the law according to JoAnn, but the law, according to the U.S. or state constitutions!

People tend to like my doubles better, they are nicer, obey, listen . . . well, yes, if you don't know what the hell you are doing, or don't know the damage you are doing, with a lame interpretation, you might be nicer; however, this is what I took an oath to preserve, protect and defend, I don't take it lightly!  Nor do I handle it well, when others, judges, the legislature, prosecutors, cops, etc., try to recreate the law according to the Mormon Church or local practice!  I may be a legal diva, but, really!

This is the Type of Analysis That Gets the Right Answer!

The law, whether in the U.S. or state constitutions, coming from a legislative body, such as the normal suspects, but city councils, county commissions, special service districts, are all bound to the supreme law of the land, starting with the plain language, if it is clear, that is as far as it goes; however, if it is not, you go next to the intent behind the law, or the history, or both . . . often, looking at the Declaration of Independence, will give you the historical context, to determine what the founding fathers, intended to accomplish, and that is often tied to the abuses, they received under the British Crown, King George, in particular!

If you have an issue that is futuristic, so to say, take the basic principles, that are being addressed, even with modern technology, computers, as modern papers, protected from unreasonable searches and seizures; or GPS tracking systems, being a violation of the 4th amendment, due to the court, interpreting the device, used on a vehicle, ruled to be an effect, listed a protected items, with persons, papers, houses and all those items entail, in a new world of technological advances, but still retaining an expectation of privacy!

Courts Are There to Settle Disputes in the Law, Determining Constitutionality

The law, should have a great level of predictability, just doing those basic analysis; however, there are times, when things like probable cause, or listing with particularity what is to be searched or seized, needing a little more fleshing out, interpretation, or understanding, with tests, and elements, to make it more clear to cops, prosecutors, judges, or attorneys, in general.  There are some gray areas of the law, that do need a more skilled mind to look at the resolution of a conflict, with attorneys, on both sides, making their best arguments to the judge, who then renders a decision.

Like it or not, agree with it, or not, that is our system, our Constitution, the law!  The beauty of life, is if you don't like the system or the flag, you live under, you move!  There are not two competing Americas . . . and anything or one, deviating from the purposes, basic tenants and concepts of liberty, freedom, property, and the pursuit of happiness, is wrong, and should move to a nation with a system they prefer better, don't create false flag attacks, then take away right!  I may be mean, but there is such a thing a treason . . . and those levying war against the people, or giving aid and comfort to our enemies, has committed a CRIME!

You might consider, constitutional law, preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution as a blood sport to me . . . so be ready for war!  I don't need to cheat, the law is on my side, the high road is always, the U.S. Constitution, void laws, like the Patriot Act, if you can disgustingly call it that, are void, as a matter of law, meaning, we the People, don't need a court to find it that way, it is already, not the law!

Judicially Created Teeth, Solidify Rights Under the Constitution

Miranda, or the reading of rights to a person, being detained to arrest, or incarcerate, is entitled to be read their rights . . . the courts, created this doctrine, to give teeth to the 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments!  Once the United States Supreme Court, ruled, around 1963 in Arizona v. Miranda, or the reverse on appeal, law school, and that case, was learned a long time ago, but every TV show and movie, with cops in it, or interrogators, showed Miranda rights being read!

This is one of the gray areas of the balance of powers, traditionally and constitutionally, Congress makes the laws, but case law is also used to interpret, what a particular amendment, or section in the Constitution means!  Racial profiling, is also one of those more clearly defined prohibitions, under the 14th amendment, with due process and equal protection clauses and mandates, not to discriminate!  People are just not sophisticated enough to distinguish one Hispanic, Black, Asian, etc. from another, nor can cops, sitting in their squad cars, distinguish which vehicles, they have probable cause to search or seize, by license plate reading machines, especially when the U.S. Supreme Court, has stated that cops and law enforcement are not entitled to use technology that is not in the use of the general public! Stingray, anyone, license plate scanning, anyone, anyone?

That may make law enforcement harder, more burdensome, more timely, as do warrants, and such, but guess what, that is our system, move!  Citizens have to abide by laws the legislature passes, and cops have to follow, the Bill of Rights, even if you think I am a bitch!  If a cop, can't follow the rights, that founding fathers created for citizens, and we the people, over 238 years ago, they should not be cops, cheating, or circumventing rights, makes it appear, that you didn't have a case, evidence, or whatever.  And in U.S.A. v. Jones, the court said, no matter how big the drug king-pin is, that is no excuse to allow the cops to violate the 4th amendment, by putting a GPS tracking device on a car, without getting a warrant, listing the probable cause, affirmed by oath and affirmation, listing what it is you are trying to get!

Governmental Immunity--If Cops Follow Well Established Law, Rules, Policy and Procedures, that are Constitutional in the First Place!

Despots, tyrannical governments, totalitarianism, and fascism, don't belong in America, like I said, nothing is stopping a dissident from going to a country, that better suits their form of government and laws they want to follow, you don't get to be Nazi SS men and women!  Sorry, we don't think Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini were cool, nor Mao Se Tung!  There systems didn't do particularly well, and we are going on 240 years, of relative peace.

Stg. Bengdahl, may have said he was embarrassed of America . . . that was because of stupid policies started by Bush and Cheney, and President Obama, trying to get us out of their insanity!  We can look at him as the Prodigal Son, welcome him back home, but hold him responsible for the consequences of his actions, desertion, and risking the lives of other soldiers, but he was there, young, there is a reason, 18 year olds, go to war, and thank God for them, many of Bengdahl's critics are not brave enough to put a uniform on, in the first place.  He had a wife and child, what the hell else was he suppose to do for the last 5 years, sit and pick his nose?

Captives often sympathize with their captors, if you don't deal with reality, it will deal with you . . . he was in survival mode, better than torture or death mode, judge not . . .


Only Had Teasers of Bozeman

The first time I came to Bozeman, was just shortly, real shortly before the 2012, presidential elections, while I was hiding in national parks, in four states, after being run out of Utah on a rail, with a choice of death, or eviction!  LOL!  I have been kicking it around Montana, for two years now, and love the whole damn, state, the people, the scenery, the politics, the towns, the adherence to the Constitution, avid believers, backed by actions of Christianity, and a sincere honesty, and humility, with willingness to change, if there is something, that I might know about, and it is amiss, boldly and blatantly admitting to either being too poor a state to remedy the issue, or a we'll git-r-done attitude . . . so fucking refreshing!

I am actually sitting at the sight, I first came to, to get on the library computers, seeing that the Mormon, NSA, with 30,000 electronic spies in Utah, that I ratted out to the world, seeing a cellmate of one of my clients, husband, was actually one of the building contractors on the building the, 4th amendment, law breakers, are housed in . . . hey, but don't bother, Utahans with the U.S. or their state Constitutions--they are right there with Bush and Cheney, stop waving that piece of paper in front of my face!  Just a minor speed bump to greater violations of federal and state, statutory and constitutional rights, but, what the hey!

Anyway, I had purchased a computer in Helena, earlier in the year, right after coming to Montana, at the Target Store, on Montana Street, that I got to use, twice!  Once Mitt, got the Republic, or Mormon, nomination, the Salt Lake Tribune, who eventually, endorsed Obama, with no little role by me, due to a front page headline, that had Romney's mugshot on it, and the words, A Mormon Moment . . . not a conservative moment, nor a Republican or American Moment, but a Mormon Moment, and that is precisely, why I wrote an email to the citizens of the United States, warning the people of the Mormon agenda, they would be subject to . . . causing a huge brew-haha, in Utah, especially on college campuses, where all revolutions start!

I got the first email out, but lost all  my 700 email contacts, however, I always sent copies to my four children, and so I got, one of my sons, to forward me a copy of that email, so I could get my contacts back; however, that was to no avail, because the second time, I wrote a huge letter, or email, or some correspondence, prepared for general service and exposure, and when I got read to send it to the world, the last thing, I wrote, to the spies, watching everything, thinking it might make them think twice, silly me, that the FBI, CIA and NSA, are not above the law, ask Tricky Dickey, President Richard Nixon, who was impeached!

That went over like a led balloon, my computer was immediately shut down, a total black out, and when I finally, rebooted it, my USER NAME HAD BEEN CHANGED TO NIXON!  Not only was I totally shocked at the blatant display of abuse of power, and access, but I tried to think of every password, connected to the Prez., like Watergate, Democratic Convention, Patricia, G. Gordon Liddy . . . not luck, fried, beyond, even the highest tech diagnostic machines, hackers, and computer professionals, with 5 attempts, my computer got an early death, used twice, only successful once!

Play That Funky Music White Boy--Just On--Always Wanted God's Revolver, Son's Band, to Kick Off Their Montana Statewide Tour, in Cowboy Country, Bozeman!

So, my first exposure to Bozeman, was the library, brief, but enough to wet my whistle, coming back after writing several blogs, letting all you wild ass cowboys and girls, down here in the cite of the college, agricultural center of the state . . . or at least that is my impression, that Kalispell based, Fresh Life Church, would be coming to set up and Church campus near you . . . and I made sure that I came to that Church kick-off.  I even thought of coming early, to start some missionary work, starting in January, before the target date, of March 9, 2014, if I am not mistaken.

The second time in the town, even made me more and more determined to check out this town, better than just a vacation, or casual stop for some other reason, to visit.  So, just like I had done in January, returning from Seattle, and laying over in Butte, with time to decide to go right or left, to Bozeman, or to Missoula or Kalispell, with frigid temperatures, I opted for home turf, but always wanted to come back.  So, when a friend of mine and I decided, we were going to come to the Beartooth Mountains and Yellowstone National Park, in July, in my normal free spirited approach to life, decided about one hour before the shuttle left Kali, to hop aboard and head to Bozeman . . . 

I did have a brief moment in the 4 hour wait in Missoula, after talking to my cousin, in Vegas, that I might, opt for the glitz and glamour of Sin City, but instead, opted to turn to Bozeman . . . all I remember, the first time I came to town, was, some hotel or restaurant, with a bucking bronc and rider, lite up on a main street . . . didn't see it at 2:30 am, when I arrived by bus last night . . . to be discovered!

Gas Station Attendant, Tried to Discourage Me, Send Me Back to Helena or Missoula . . . Been There, Done That . . . New Beginnings

I bought both newspapers, from Billings first by accident, then the Bozeman Chronicle, jobs were plentiful, rents high, but opportunity knocks, so here I am, freezing my ass off in front of the library, I choice the outdoors, over being in a structure or building, anytime, anywhere . . . but, right now, I am hoping to wonder down Main Street, and check out a coffee shop, or mom & pop, greasy spoon, to get some breakfast!  And to get warm!

As I walked away from the gas station, I thought, I wonder if that is an undercover cop, planted to bring tales of woe, and sent me running the other way . . . California owns this place; well, I was born in California, so the Prune Pickers, don't bother me, sort of one of them . . . by birth, but not marriage!  LOL!  I love both rural and urban influences, and I find a combination of both, plus, a liberal and conservative element to politics, puts this raging constitutional law attorney, about where she likes to be, right smack dab in the middle, cheering on the battle between to two sides, and special interests, coming to a must be compromise, getting a better product, than had everyone been one party or the other!

Life if a Journey, Live It!

There is Only One of Me . . . Left Kalispell, 4:30 p.m., I am in Missoula, at McDonald's, Leaving for Butte at 11:00 p.m., and one to Las Vegas!

There is not a JoAnn or Joanne, or Joann, or Joan--there is just one of me, blogger, who has been in Kalispell, Missoula, Helena, Las Vegas, Spokane, Seattle, and various other places, just one of me; however, you  may have encountered, several other women bearing my name, claiming to be attorneys, bloggers, members of the United States Supreme Court Bar; nevertheless, the one and only, is sitting right here, destined to my cousin, Edward Southwick's, townhouse, on Nellis Blvd., in none other than Sin City, America, Las Vegas, Neveda . . . about time to start living again, making money, and dancing at the Blue Martini, going to Planet Fitness, where I got a membership in January, take up where I left off . . . fun, fun, fun!

I am going to take 6 months to get in shape, bank some cash, and then head back up to Montana, to meet my dream cowboy, when I am closer to looking like his, dream cowgirl!  So, expect a, drastic transformation, and some politicking in the Vegas area, where I represented, Thomas G. Vail, against the Las Vegas, Review Journal, the Governor and Lt. Governor, Pioneer Insurance, and the insurance commmissioner, who stepped down after I spoke with his legal staff, who is now, in the governor's office, I think . . . rekindle, old fights, just kidding, the CIA, had lunch with my client of a year and a half, and did the same as it did, with several other clients, like Brock and Rice, Cheek, Clark and Braun, and many more, to the tune of roughly, $700 million worth of cases . . . it is just money!  LOL!

Be Talking to You In Vegas In a Few Days!

And Remember, What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas . . . Unless a Blogger Like Myself, Decides to Tell the World!
