Hillary Clinton’s Bundlers

The following info came from this website http://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/bundlers

Bundlers are people with friends in high places who, after bumping against personal contribution limits, turn to those friends, associates, and, well, anyone who’s willing to give, and deliver the checks to the candidate.

The Federal Election Commission requires disclosure only of those bundlers who are registered lobbyists. Beyond that, it’s up to the candidate. The Clinton campaign is releasing information about bundlers who raised over $100,000 (see list below); the campaign does not specify how much each of these individuals has raised beyond that. The Trump campaign has released no information about its bundlers whatsoever.

Together, 1,129 Extremely wealthy were directing at least $112,300,000 for Clinton’s election efforts — money that has gone into the coffers of her campaign as well as the Democratic National Committee.

Notice of Misprision of Treason

This is a copy of the certified letter that has been sent to President Donald Trump. The purpose as you will read, is to report to him as required under the Constitution, any and all known insurrections, treasons, and plots against the United States or “the Laws thereof”. According to the Constitution and the following United States Statute, it is a crime for any elected official to ignore the evidence and do nothing about it. This Group has been around for almost 30 years and have experienced my examples of usurpations and criminal acts against the Citizens and laws of this country and have noticed numerous Presidents and other Public Officials of the crimes. It is now time for the Citizens to use the laws and Constitution to indict those involved. The question then becomes, how many are involved?

PART I—CRIMES

§2382. Misprision of treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both. (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §330016(1)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

From: ANDREW S. COLESANTI

COUNTER INSURGENCY OBSERVATION & STUDIES GROUP (COINSOG)

8409 N. Oak River Way, Hernando, Florida 34442

To: Office of the President

Donald Trump, President of the United States

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Washington, D. C., 20500

Title 18 U.S.C. § 2382 Notice of Misprision of Treason

And

Qualified claim by COINSOG for appropriations under the rules of necessity and delegated authority of the 9th Amendment and Section 4 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America to payments, bounties and pensions for services to put down rebellion and insurrection against the duly constituted Republic its Bill of Rights & Constitution.

Dear President Trump,

      Referenced law requires anyone owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason or insurrections against the authority of the United States, or the laws thereof to make known the same to the President, some Judge of the United States, or to the Governor or Judges or Justices of a particular State. What I report to you is ongoing within the fifty States, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealths.       I must report to you, that most all Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States except for the Honorable Justice Thomas, most Federal, State, County and local Public Officials, Judges, Justices and their paramilitaries have used public appropriations, their public offices,  vacating their Oaths of Office intentionally in the process, to defy Federal and State laws with sufficient force and effect during times pertinent, so as to deny the power of the United States Constitution with their “Qualified Immunity” schemes. Thereby they, each of them, became insurgents against that Constitution as prescribed by Sections 3 (insurrection clause) and 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment using the definition of Federal case entitled, “In Re Charge to Grand Jury, N.D., Ill., 1894, 62 F. 828.”

     It has become abundantly clear that all Federal, State, County and local Courts in America are exacting their qualified immunity schemes to bolster a Police State apparatus whose mission is to pacify the American civilian population into submission of usurped powers thereby creating an arbitrary government. This is evidence, that these Courts no longer serve to benefit the civilian populations, instead victimizing them by the arrogant and unlawful violations of their natural civil and constitutional rights, thereby an insurrection has taken hold. Therefore, the best course of action is a counter insurgency under Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment directed at those cited in Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment who have violated or vacated their Oaths of Office, thereby they shall not hold office.

       We the People have heard all the arguments in favor of qualified immunity, however not one argument negates the fact that it is insurrection, treason and conspiracy by Public Officials within the Judiciary that gave unchecked force to their paramilitaries in order to capriciously victimize the American civilian population. We all now witness the overwhelming call by segments of the civilian population and Public Officials to de-fund and even abolish police primarily because of the protections extended to them by the treasonous qualified immunity scheme. This matter Mr. President could be defused simply by the execution of an Presidential Executive Order abolishing qualified immunity, restructuring of police duties, and responsibilities and not as paramilitaries.

      Then there is the pressing question; “is America a duly constituted Republic or has it become a Police State Junta” with minimal protections of individual rights?  Not unlike those brutal Juntas that were trained at the Old School of the Americas, WINSEC or of late American paramilitaries trained by the IDF in classic violent military pacification of civilian populations to force them into submission of usurpation’s, notwithstanding the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

     The arming of the current Police State Apparatus with military arms and implements of war became apparent with the enactment of the Gun Control ACT of May 1986 as the treasonous disarming of peaceful American civilians took hold as if it was a war upon their natural civil and constitutional rights. This has become the status quo, strengthened by the insurgent’s qualified immunity scheme.  Then there is the fact that nowhere within the text of the 2nd Amendment can one find the phrase “but in a manner to be prescribed by law” evidencing why the usurpers covet their treasonous blanket of qualified immunity.

     Coupled with qualified immunity “bound by an oath of office” as defined in the COINAGE ACT, a blanket bond scheme was developed, solely intended to pass the financial liability of bad actors in public office and their para-military enforces onto the taxpayers, thus unlawfully indemnifying themselves from personal liability.       There has been debate about whether or not any civilian uprising against the aforementioned treasonous insurgents cited within Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th would be rebellion or insurrection against a duly constituted authority, in of itself? The best qualified answer we have found to this question is: EXCERPT’ reason for the militia; “to stand against any arbitrary government and its usurped powers as reiterated by Supreme Court Justice Story in Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States Vol. 3 at pp. 746-747 (1833). It is surely reasonable to conclude that in a nation with fundamental liberties, a direct remedy must be afforded those victimized, coerced and harassed by these insurgents and their para-military protectors. 

      Evidence of an insurrection is well documented, from within the various government bodies, using the qualified immunity scheme to deny the liberty and justice, intended by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. So now the question is, “has government at all levels become arbitrary?” The answer to this pressing question lies within but not limited to the following facts: two former Presidents were served with Notice of Misprision of Treason by members of COINSOG, as it relates to the courts they chose to aid and abet by their inactions. COINSOG members also brought forth cases citing insurrection, treason, and conspiracy into U.S. District Courts within several states of the union, again to no avail. Those states were New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, South Dakota as well as the SCOTUS, even though early law required as mandatory “not discretionary” the SCOTUS review all cases citing insurrection. Then we have the fact “Congress knew or should have known of the unconstitutional qualified immunity schemes and the negative impact it would and has had on the civilian population, many of whom rot in jails who have and are denied their constitutional rights.  Not one meaningful or honest attempt from within has occurred to stop the ongoing insurrection and treason from within.  “Thereby it can be said an arbitrary government has indeed taken hold.”

      All of America who care to observe, as well as the members  of the Counter Insurgency Studies & Observation Group (COINSOG) have witnessed countless court cases brought forth by victims of the insurgent’s  unjust qualified immunity schemes to “try” to establish accountability for the ongoing usurpations of their natural civil and constitutional rights, only too further suffer from the “qualified immunity scheme used to deny, again and again any liability or accountability whatsoever and it still continues.”

     Even you Mr. President, I truly suspect, was unaware of those engaged in the insurrection and treason, as it relates to “RED FLAG LAWS”. The MO was seizing the guns first from honest Citizens and worry about the due process later. However, how are we the people to expect due process of law, while the blanket of treasonous qualified immunity is protected by our courts and instead, used by usurpers to trample upon the natural, civil and constitutional rights of the America population?

      I would be remis if I did not point out, there are other insurgents and their component forces at work 24-7, some of which are allegedly led by convicted Marxist terrorist, one of many terrorists pardoned by BILL CLINTON and ruthlessly targeting you Mr. President and the segment of America that supports you. The time has arrived to not only invoke Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment, to route out those insurgents who have disavowed their oaths of office, as cited in Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment and the INSURRECTION ACT. To route out all insurgent component forces that threaten not only you Mr. President, but the election process, and the duly constituted Republic, its Bill of Rights, Constitution and those American’s who support you.

     In conclusion: Mr. President, common sense dictates, no one wants civil unrest, a civil war or perhaps a revolution. We must stop the usurpations exacted by embedded insurgents from within our own government and their component forces and the social unrest it is causing across the nation. If we do nothing” it will likely continue. The only logical and more peaceable path left to the American civilian population is to invoke Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment under the rules of necessity and delegated authority of the 9th Amendment. Thereby “COINSOG defined, as other armed forces of the United States of America”, reiterates its claim to payments, bounties, and pensions to put down the identified insurrection under Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America.

With respect,

With Justice for None; the four henchmen

@ H. Skip Robinson 04/01/2019

It is not hard to acknowledge that when Judges are chosen politically, the Judges will become as much a politician as those selecting them.  The confirmation hearings of Judges have become a political battle so adverse and contentious, that they are partially being fought through the legal system itself.

Of course, this is the worst thing that could ever occur in any society, but it has been the rule throughout human history. The Judges have always been a rubber stamp for the ruling class and the various factions want their candidate to be the one confirmed.  The should give you an indication of just how arbitrary judicial decisions have been and can be.  

“With Justice for None” is also the title of a book by the best-selling author and prominent defence Attorney Gerry Spence, now deceased, who wrote a highly critical review of our legal system.  

“A scathing indictment of how law is taught, practiced, and administered in this country . . . One of the best books ever written on the law.”—The Denver Post
 
“Renowned trial lawyer Gerry Spence takes an in-depth look at the American justice system and reveals a terrible truth: If you don’t have power or money, then you likely won’t receive justice either. The wealthy buy their way out of trouble, while the poor are punished. In an effort to combat this corruption, the author devises a number of reforms, tackling issues in every area of the system from law school to the courtroom.”

This is the truth about our legal system, and I have read and heard hundreds of stories over the years providing additional evidence. If you have the money to pay the extravagant prices the average Attorneys charges, and many of them are “poor to average” at best in their abilities to acquire justice, you will get better treatment that those that don’t have the money. Many of them are highly unscrupulous and will take your money and then do hardly anything to help you. And God forbid, having to use a Public Defender who is an indirect drain on the pension funds of the Judges and other government employees that work the justice system, I call Courthouse Vultures.   

IMHO, with the States and American BAR Associations, they have created a quasi power cartel full of individuals with highly questionable integrity. In 1820, Thomas Jefferson apparently agreed when he wrote; “The Judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working underground to undermine the foundation of our confederated fabric.… the Federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scarecrow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow and advance it’s noiseless step like a thief over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one…. when all government….in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the centre of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.

Our Judiciary, has allowed, until just this week of 3/15/2019 the “extraordinary” excessive confiscation of money and property through unconstitutional Asset Forfeiture actions protected by the 8Th Amendment to be standard operations by local, state and Federal Law enforcement agencies. Finally, after decades perhaps even a century or so, of unlawful confiscations of property and money from the Citizens by government prosecutors and law enforcement, the Supreme Count finally has upheld and protected one of out constitutional rights, in a case Timbs v Indiana after the appellate determination by the Indiana Supreme Court, affirmed an action so unconscionable that it boggles the imagination.

We all know our political system is inherently flawed because of the effects of money on the system but unless you follow some of the lower and Supreme Court decisions carefully you are not necessarily cognizant of the Courts poor behavior.

I think they got Roe vs Wade right and many others but when it comes to the governments taxing and other confiscatory powers to fine, penalize and imprison, it is as if it is a profitable business to them.

I’ll give you one example. During the foreclosure epidemic, the South Florida Courts literally became a purely arbitrary system with a “rocket docket” mentality as it was being called by Attorneys, forgoing most of the rules of law and this was a determination from the top down, with the Senior Judges telling their subordinates to clear their docket, ruling against the homeowners almost 100% of the time. Come to find out the Judges have their own pension fund and they had invested in some of the mortgage loans sold be Wall Street and the banks.

Despite the various frauds initiated by the banks and mortgage lenders, homeowners lost their homes almost 100% of the time unless the banks made some sort of deal with the homeowners.  Here in So. Florida we still have huge numbers of foreclosures still on the dockets and it is often the banks themselves slowing the process. As a Realtor, I think they are trying to slowly bring these properties on the market so that the keep the inventories low and prices remain high but that’s another issue for another day. 

The rocket docket mentality still exists as far as the Judges siding with the banks, but the legal processes have normalized. If you think justice is being served, it is not. We even have found family members of the Judges being owners of banks or major shareholders. 

In the State of Florida, a jury trial is prohibited for foreclosure proceeding by Florida Statute allowing only the Judges to reside, called a Judicial Hearing over the determination of the cases. How can this even be constitutional? 

What is amazing is that Thomas Jefferson warned us about this so many years ago. He stated: “The opinion which gives to the Judges the right to decide what laws are Constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the legislature and executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a Despotic branch.  The new Constitution has secured these (individual rights) in the Executive and Legislative departments; but not in the Judiciary. It should have established trials by the people themselves, that is to say by jury.” Understand that he was writing about the jury being the final arbiter at the Appellate levels just as it is most often at the Circuit Court level. 

In one case We The People v. United States, 485 F.3D 140 (2007), one Judge made the initial decision in the lawsuit to deny the right to petition the government for redress of grievances under the 1st Amendment, a group of 62 questions relating to the Federal individual Income Tax, the U.S. Government would not answer.  A three Judge panel, including the now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh upheld the usurpation and the SCOTUS refused to hear the case. https://openjurist.org/485/f3d/140/we-the-people-foundation-inc-v-united-states So, we had in this case, just “four” people determining if Citizens have the Right to petition the Government for Redress of Grievances under the 1st Amendment and expect honest answers to those questions.  Siding with Kavanaugh was Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Chief Justice and District of Columbia Circuit Court Justice, Judith W. Rogers. The initial Judge in the lawsuit at the DC Circuit was Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. I call them the four henchmen for usurping one of the most necessary rights of all. Our founding fathers petitioned King George as well and with the same results.

The proverbial question is why have a right to petition the government for redress of grievances, if the Government doesn’t have to honestly respond to questions pertaining especially to the tax laws of our nation? If they cannot answer such questions, how are they able to assess and enforce them?  

It was the single most influential action taken by those in the U.S. Government that made me come to the very sad but honest realization, as those from Princeton University and other academics have concluded. That we are an oligarchy and not a democratic republic any more, quashing the entire notion of any possibility of representative democracy under our current leadership and system. IMHO, it is the judiciary that provides the legal precedence that has slowly allowed the expanded size and scope of powers beyond the constitutional limitations set force in our rules of law.  There are legal and proper ways to amend our Constitution, yet the judiciary has ignored them on many occasions, legislating from the Bench as each political Party contends the other is doing. In all three of the above situations noted above, it was the Judiciary single handedly that was the final arbiter fostering the usurpation of rights protected by the Bill of Rights.           

Here are the 62 Questions posed in the formal petition for redress of grievances under the 1st Amendment presented to the IRS Department of the Treasury, The President of the United States and all 535 members of Congress. https://jurists4justice.com/essays/62-questions-the-irs-government-refuses-to-answer/

It simply comes down to just nine people determining the laws for a nation of 325 million people; two much power in the hands of too few individuals. With the negation of the right to petition for redress of grievances, they have now blocked all of the Citizens ability of any method(s) of direct oversight over those in judicial power, as Thomas Jefferson warned so very long ago.  You can vote your little hearts out and it will have little bearing, these justices are nominated and confirmed by the most politically powerful in our system.  The President and 100 Senators now decide our judicial fate.

Then we wonder why the Government has grown from having just one tax, a luxury import tax, to taxing everyone and everything we do with Gestapo like tactics, WWII Germany would be proud of. Total government spending at all levels is now at $7.4 trillion “annually” and we must borrow $1 trillion of that annually, now placing every household in debt to the turn of about $175,000.00 with a total of just the Federal Government debt now surpassing $22 trillion.

We are literally indebting the future generations beyond their potential of paying it back without debasing our currency even more.  Inflation has only been curbed by the poor economic conditions felt by everyone but the wealthy who appear to be oblivious to the effects placed on the middle to lower socio-economic spectrum.                                              

You Want To Do What?

With the Federal budget especially, but also state and local, if Citizens could pick and choose which social programs they want to pay for and how much they want to contribute to each one, it would at least give us some semblance of a democracy. 

Look, there is no one greater than I that fears the voting majority because they are not being educated and there is no reason for the ruling class to educate them, and actually just the opposite. The stupider the voters are the more they can be taken advantage of.   

With politicians making the decisions, knowing darn well they are serving the wealthy special interests instead of the majority, the benefits of our democratic republic are negated. We’re simply an oligarchy, controlled by wealthy special interests pretending to be a democratic Republic like the Roman Empire and ALL other nation-states before us.

Can you imagine politicians having to actually prove to the voters that a war is needed with the citizens getting to decide if the truth is really being told to us? Would we have engaged in Desert Storm or Syria?

We have the technology to do this, it’s the political will I am worried about. These putzes can’t even get a simple 1 man 1 vote election correct. That’s because sadly we have the inmates running the asylum; oh right, we’re calling it a swamp now. Elon Musk and SpaceX can send rockets into space and land them safely, and we can get a friggin computer system to count the votes correctly?

We must teach our children that wisdom does not always come easily or quickly. That they must work hard to both gain the experience and the knowledge to achieve it.
We must teach our children the patients is truly a virtue and that others will often fail to choose it.
We must teach our children that the use of the phrase “We must teach our children” at the beginning of each sentence is redundant and unnecessary.
That the historical stories passed down to us are often skewed to protect the improprieties of those involved and that we all fall short of perfection.
That our actions, sometimes even the simplest can have profound effects on others and the world.
That the planet is not a trash can and that pollution is simply stuff being in the wrong place; make sure it gets in the right place.
To be skeptical of those religions that grant special privileges or rights to those who believe in their doctrines, over those that do not.
That morality is subjective and is how you choose to ethically live your life. That others have the right to chose how they ethically live their lives subject to however the NAP, not harming others or their property through the aggressions of force, coercion or fraud.
To love and to care for and about others and to be honest with both your heart and your actions.
That hurtful words cannot be taken back once they are stated and that withholding them is often a sign of wisdom and virtue.

Alfred Lord Tennyson; “Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”

John Adams; “You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments; rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; rights derived from the great legislator of the universe.”

Thomas Jefferson; “A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”

George Washington; “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force, like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

So, the challenge to parents and educators; teach your children what is important and teach them the truth. I have a feeling that some of you may need to brush up a little on both.
