Suicide by mass shooting is a symptom of an ailing society, and until society as a whole revolts against the economic framework which is driving sick and miserable individuals to such acts of desperation, the Democrats saying to “ban guns” won’t help, and the Republicans screaming to “arm teachers” won’t do a thing. Those pointing to mental health are closer to identifying the problem. Doubtlessly, anyone determined to commit suicide, by definition is mentally ill.
And while I concede that stricter background checks may prevent some of these tragedies… To attempt to resolve a mental health crisis by involving our corrupt and lawless government is the definition of total insanity. Involving police— especially for the black community or lefty activists can result in prisons or morgues.
I can’t speak for the black community— but I am an activist— and in that capacity— without a lawyer, I sued so-called President Trump (and his FBI minions) and won. In a civil case, that just means that Trump and his FBI minions paid me for the crimes they had done.
The sad thing is, the slope only gets more slippery from there, as my wife and became subject to an unrelenting investigation by the FBI. Within this draconian and Kafkaesque nightmare, police and federal agents erroneously were able to use the kind of gun laws Democrats advocate to falsely accuse my wife and I of a plot to assassinate Donald Trump. The FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force delivered bogus subpoenas for five grand juries in two states to falsely bring charges against us— just to make sure we wouldn’t be able to be able to release our film about the 2020 election and subsequent George Floyd protests. These “stricter” laws for which the Democrats advocate, absent a moral compass, and complete overhaul of how policing is done in the US, is absolute madness.
Cops are almost universally conservative. So, putting all the guns in their hands is a recipe for right-wing authoritarianism at the state level, and on the street level, neo-Nazis committing lynchings without consequence. This is by and large because so-called law-enforcement are sympathetic to the right-wing nuts who support them, but neither seem to understand they are both doing the bidding of politicians who are doing the bidding of the economic forces which prop up the system which makes someone want to do suicide by mass shooting in the first place.
On the flip-side, the Republicans’ solution is more guns— arm everyone. This, for obvious reasons is also madness. More guns as a solution for Suicide by Mass Shooting is akin to advocating smoking cigarettes to cure cancer.
So, here it is in a nut-shell:
The United States of America is an Empire— At the heart of every empire is an engine of suffering, tasked with the objective of acquisition of resources— land, lumber, food, fuel and the rest. The fairytale version they teach you as a child is that the so-called founding fathers lead a righteous revolt against the British Empire to bring the world truth, justice and the American way.
While the United States may have separated physically from the United Kingdom, the governments of the US and England have never been more buddy-buddy. Meanwhile, the economic system which binds them, (and all the countries of the world together) has never caused more human suffering— An inconvenient reality which has made it impossible for the citizens to revolt.
Worse still, this system has expanded on the Roman Empire’s notion of the coliseum— piped to you in real time through TV and the internet. And while these modern conveniences have enriched the lives of many (in oh so many ways), this system has blinded nearly all of its citizens to the fact that we’re boiling frogs.
Each year, inflation increases. No longer is a single income enough for a single family home, much less a cardboard box on the street. President Barack Obama, upon getting into office lamented to Greek Finance minister Yanis Varoufakis that the 2008 financial collapse was beyond his power, and he had to bail out the banks. To no-one’s surprise— the bankers weren’t punished, the people were.
Similarly, Joe Biden created the largest upward transfer of wealth in human history with his pandemic response. He gave the so-called bailout money to billionaires, while once again letting the people suffer.
Donald Trump has acted as if he is the antidote to this pain and suffering, and reduction of life and living conditions. But he sowed discord from day one, mandating a Muslim ban, selling ten billion in arms to the Saudis, and continuing in the murderous acquisition of wealth and resources as set forth by the financiers who all have their hands firmly jammed up the asses of these politicians.
There may be short-term solutions through government, but make no mistake, the government is beholden to the financial structure which is the source of the suffering.
There are no simple solutions. The only way to stop the loss of more human life is putting an end to this system. The real question is, how far are you willing to put an end to the killing of more children?
Since I’ve gone public with the trying ordeal which my wife (Lauren Pespisa) and I have been subjected to by the FBI, there are naturally those who have questions. Good. I welcome these questions— because I’ve got receipts.
Today’s question: Is there really a “pro-Trump FBI”?
Of course there is such a thing as “pro-Trump” FBI.
I sued a pro-Trump FBI agent named Edward Jon Deck Jr. and beat his ass in court right along with Donald Trump. The name the court gave to my lawsuit against Trump, and the other Trumpkins was “Webber v Deck.” They named it this because Deck was first listed on my complaint. I probably would’ve put Trump first had I known— but what can I say— I was young and naive. “Webber v Deck” might as well say “Webber v FBI.”
Trump paid this piece of shit FBI agent– Agent Eddie Jon to be his top enforcer. He made hundreds of thousands of dollars doing it. And much like our current persecutor, Agent Creed who has made it his specialty to harass lefties, Agent Eddie Jon made it his specialty to brutalize protesters at Trump rallies based on race, ethnicity and lefty-ideology. The internet is full of videos of Eddie Jon going straight-up Mick Foley on anyone he deemed not allegiant to the Church of Trump.
Agent Eddie Jon, This FBI-agent turned wrestling superstar first made headlines when he started punching the Mexican protesters dressed as KKK (to say Trump was a Klansmen) in 2015. Eddie Jon was accompanied by fellow Trump goon, Keith Schiller. (Schiller literally wrestled with Trump as part of a WWE skit— and it is clear where he got his “wrestling” moves. Between the two, they did quite a job ripping up those mean, mean protest signs and just started punching protesters. Because, fuck it— when you were actually in the WWE, this is what you do. The only reason they didn’t hit anyone in the head with a metal chair was because there wasn’t one available. Of course, this is the incident that lead to the Galicia v Trump lawsuit. By the looks of it, they may even drag Trump into a deposition. Meanwhile, half of the country thought Trump would do a good job running the country.
Agent Eddie Jon once again made headlines when he lost his temper in Asheville, North Carolina, going pyscho on a man who didn’t even seem to be a protester. Eddie Jon ranted and raved doing his best Randy Macho Man Savage impression— much as Agent Eddie Jon did with me.
In August of 2016, Agent Eddie Jon went psycho on Jake Anantha— a pro-Trump Muslim teenager. The kid went on TV to say that he had come to his senses and no longer supported Trump. At the same rally, they kicked out Rose Hamid, another Muslim protester— obviously based on her ethnicity.
And yes— Eddie Jon assaulted and battered me in New Hampshire. The way these dirt-bags avoid liability is sneaky. Trump had hired Eddie Jon through Eddie Jon’s shell company, XMark. That way, if someone tried to sue Trump, they’d serve the wrong company. But, they got greedy, and Trump accidentally made direct payments to Eddie Jon. And when Eddie Jon collaborated with uniformed off-duty police while beating me, he got caught thinking he was still being shield by his shell company, and his FBI superpowers.
That was a no-no. So Trump had to write me a check.
The lesson here— if there is one— is that there are DEFINITELY pro-Trump FBI agents. You can sue them and make them write you a check— but then all of their friends like Agents Creed and Kimball will try to fuck you in the proverbial shower.
My wife Lauren Pespisa and I have become the subject of a Federal Investigation because of our film My wife Lauren Pespisa and I have become the subject of a Federal Investigation because of our film “2020: The Dumpster Fire.” The film features interviews with Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, Jello Biafra and many of the politicians from the 2020 Presidential Election. I traveled to the heart of the George Floyd protests capturing footage of the fires in Minneapolis and the attacks by Riot Cops in Portland unseen on mainstream news. The film is being released theatrically December 7th at the Pelham Picture House, in NYC. APPLE TV+ pre-sales are December 26th. Available on VOD Jan 6 on Apple, Google VUDU, and Amazon.
According to statements made by Federal Agents, their investigation into our lives came out of the January 6th Insurrection investigation. This is perplexing, since Lauren and I are lefty activists who were nowhere near The US Capitol on that day.
When FBI/ JTTF Agent Andy Creed was unable to pin his bogus “assassination” claim on me, he went after my wife.
It is clear to us— this is a vendetta.
Here’s the brief rundown:
Dec 23: The Trump Campaign loses their two year battle in my assault and battery lawsuit against them which I litigated without a legal degree against an army of Trump’s legal stuffed suits.
Jan 6: Lauren and I were in Massachusetts, nowhere near the US Capitol, all while Donald Trump attempted to stage a coup d’Etat on the US government– a crime for which he will likely never go punished.
Jan 13: Secret Service, FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force together approached me on a so-called “tip” from a Proudboy as part of their Jan 6th investigation. Allegedly, this Proudboy put forward the lie that the “Dumpster Fire” trailer was evidence of a plot to assassinate then-President Trump.
As if that wasn’t enough, Agents questioned me about a so-called “satanic ritual,” which was in reality a performance art piece performed in opposition to Super Happy Fun America, the founders of the Boston Straight Pride Parade. Again and again and again I keep having to find myself needing to say that this would be hilarious if the charges weren’t so absolutely outrageous.
Jan 30: Federal agents served me with a subpoena for a Feb 23rd Grand Jury. They made it clear that Lauren was the target of their investigation, and that they would get me “like Martha Stewart, for lying to the FBI.”
– The FBI dropped the bogus “assassination” claim, but spent the past ten months digging into all the dirt they could find on me or “2020: The Dumpster Fire,” and they made at least 17 visits to friends, family members and crew. When harassment failed, the agents went shopping for prosecutors in other states.
– Aug 5: Apparently they found an AUSA in Maine willing to prosecute, since two members of our production crew were hand-delivered subpoenas. One of them, Embry Galen at that time was a pre-operative trans-man— and was harassed mercilessly by Federal Agents.
– A number of Grand Juries were convened then canceled since September, but at least one Grand Jury took place in October with a member of the film crew.
The next Grand Jury is November 17th.
The following is a statement by our attorney, Murat Erkan:
The chilling effect which a potential prosecution would inflict on First Amendment rights is not hypothetical. It is direct and far reaching. Everyone involved in this film is in fear with the looming threat of prosecution. If this goes to court, I can only imagine that anyone seeking to convey a message (especially a message which seeks to inspire debate, which is the most vital form of expression) would hesitate to risk it. In the face of a government willing to scrutinize their production for any evidence of violation of law, then seek to prosecute it regardless of whether the violation implicated any true public safety concerns, many would choose to remain silent.
If you are familiar with “The War of North Dakota,” (my film about Standing Rock), or “The Oppressed Majority” (denouncing The Proudboys), you know that we stand for what is right. If you are familiar with Lauren’s activism and advocacy for housing rights through Renter’s Radio podcast, you know she stands for what is right. So, please take a moment to sign this petition to stop this baseless prosecution and persecution of speech which challenges authority.
We would also welcome character witness statements, and we are waiting for our GoFundMe to be approved, as we have already spent around $15,000 in legal fees. WE DO NOT RECEIVE ANY OF THE MONEY DONATED TO CHANGE DOT ORG. If you want to help in that regard, you can message us privately.
Chelsea Manning is sick of Glenn Greenwald’s shit.
So, today, she said she’d return Greenwald’s $10,000 donation if she could. Glenn hit her back saying, “Friendships that depend on political agreement were never ‘friendships,’ just cynical transactions.”
As part of a series of other tweets, Glenn tweeted, “While Julian Assange is rotting in prison, @ChelseaManning recently smeared him when he couldn’t defend himself, announcing that if she had to do it over again, she would not have leaked to WikiLeaks. Maligning someone unjustly rotting in prison is not an attribute I value.”
Chelsea was somewhat vague in what her issue with Glenn was, but it is reasonable to surmise that it had something to do with his trillions of appearances on Fox News, or his regular bashing of lefties and his constant lip service to his besty, Tucker Carlson.
Naturally, Barrett Brown is also sick of of Glenn’s bullshit– so he jumped in holding receipts– pointing out to Glenn, “Yes it is. [an attribute Glenn values.] You hired and retained Sam Biddle for The Intercept after he wrote an article celebrating my sentencing, among other things. Then you let him handle the Reality Winner documents. Either me, Chelsea, Winner, Hammond, and Kiriakou are trash, or you are.
For those unfamiliar with Brown’s work, he did much to expose the malevolence and doucehbaggery of private intelligence Voldemorts such as Palantir and HB Gary Federal. As a result, Barrett was thrown in a US gulag and charged with the “crime” of pasting a publicly available URL into the public. Glenn was a supporter of Barrett’s work, but obviously, the feelings are not so fuzzy at this stage.
Way back in 2011, things were going very well for Barrett Brown, a hacker groupie-cum-journalist who’d made some friends in Anonymous, the once-fearsome online collective. Today, he was sentenced to 63 months in prison after aiding them in their reign of crimes and bullshit theatrics.
I shared Barrett’s tweet with Glenn, saying, “You hired Sam Biddle after Barrett’s sentencing? That seems to be contradictory to everything you’ve been tweeting today.
GLENN: When are people going to comprehend that I didn’t run the Intercept? If I ran the Intercept, would I have had to quit because they wouldn’t publish my article? You think I made hiring decisions?
ROD: Your statement is akin to Ringo Starr saying, “when are people going to comprehend that I didn’t run The Beatles,” or if you prefer, Charlie Manson saying, “you know I wasn’t the one who did the murders.” If Ringo had quit in protest of those hit songs, or Charlie stepped down before the murders, then they could reasonably disassociate. The question is, did you step down when Biddle was hired in protest of him trashing Barrett? No. You, didn’t.
GLENN: Barrett himself went to work at the intercept and took its money.
ROD: Barrett wrote from prison– and before Biddle was hired. Are you trying to tell me that Barrett– or Julian, or Kirakou or anyone in prison are being given preferential treatment and are given minute-by-minute updates of the hiring and firing at The Intercept? Of course not. But since you had your freedom, that’s something you had access to. Get out of here with “he took their money too” bullshit.
I haven’t heard back from Glenn since— but since his hypocrisy is on full display, I expect that Mr. Greenwald will go back to chasing dung beetles and stacking up his Substack piles of cash which he has amassed as a result of his appearances on Tucker Carlson’s white-nationalism hour.
Glenn Greenwald: The latest in my series of weird interactions with the Dogtick caught on the butt-cheek of journalism:
Portland Oregon— The Proudboys announce their plans to terrorize the city this past Saturday. At the last minute, they re-brand the event as “The Summer of Love” using hippy imagery and fooling no one. As usual, they come armed with bats, real guns and homemade weapons. They shoot off a lot of paintball guns, while Antifa shoots off fireworks.
What’s most important to note is that the police announced they were standing down. In other words— doing nothing. They do this to send the message that the Proudboys are welcome to terrorize Portland, OR. Sure enough, they pulled people out of cars, tipped over a van and ran through the streets firing a real gun.
During the insanity, a journalist named Maranie Staab was attacked on two occasions— first by “a right winger,” (in the words of Ford Fischer who filmed the incident), then second, by Black Blok. The right winger apparently used WD-40, and Black blok, pepper spray or similar.
What happened to Maranie sucks— but when the police don’t do their job— or worse— take sides, people will do what they think they have to to stay safe. The right winger ran at Maranie. In the case of black blok, she unwisely approached them.
Later, the right winger Dennis G. Anderson was arrested for firing his gun— but that’s the level things have to get to get the police to do their job.
As usual, Glenn was caught telling only half the story— and spent most of yesterday tweeting only about Antifa.
Glenn obviously knows who pays him.
I email to Glenn: Video shows Maranie attacked by right winger.
Your omissions reveal that you could give a fuck about journalists, and you’re just interested in raising outrage about Antifa for obvious financial incentives.
I had no idea about this “update” until you emailed me about it, and will be happy to note it, but it’s absolutely hilarious to watch the journalist herself tell you what an absolute moron and liar you are for trying to claim that it negates anything I said about what happened to her at the hands of Antifa: https://twitter.com/MaranieRae/status/1430440472783200260
Maranie is a little off-base, but clearly doesn’t say any of what Glenn claims— so I respond as Glenn:
Yes, my lovely uglies— Let the hate flow!!
I am Glenn Greenwald, and I am great and I am good. And so long as I can be close to my precious maggotses dung, it can be ground into a fine powder and laid out into long, long lines on a pretty mirror for nasal consumption!
That bad Flowerman bringing attention to the existence of the additional evidences makes him very, very bad indeed. Servant! Bring me my word-book! What is good word for “bad?”
Ah, yes. The Flowerman is moron!! Mmmwwahahaha! His evidence is moron!! I call him liar!! Type these words into word-box!
But Master Glenn, Maranie no say these words. Flowerman only post Ford Fischer tweet to make Master inform!
Be quiet, you vermin! I did not repeatedly sell myself out and suffer through years of being Tucker’s servant to listen to your insubordinance!
We make the word-box now!
We make the word-box now!
Rod Webber is sick of your bullshit, and you should be too.
In response to Caitlin Johnstone’s article written two days ago, “TYT, Jimmy Dore, AND OTHER NOTES FROM THE EDGE OF THE NARRATIVE MATRIX.”
Mostly, I respect Caitlin’s writing. Her ability to kick the Military Industrial Complex in the dick, and shine a light on Uncle Sam’s murdering, imperialistic conquest is always a pleasant way to start the morning. That said, I’m just getting over a three day flag-burning hangover, so forgive me for taking so long to get in on this, “narcissistic public masturbation,” as Caitlin rightly calls it.
She’s right that nothing about America changed in any meaningful way after Trump took office or after he left. Joe Biden is a kinder, gentler, more senile Donald Trump. That said, Caitlin is making a ridiculous argument that if you’re not as popular as Jimmy, you are either a jealous hater who should learn to be more like Jimmy, or just fucking quit.
Caitlin writes: “Part of the widespread vitriol toward Dore is due to jealousy about his popularity and influence, and part is due to a belief that he’s the wrong kind of voice to be leading the left. But in both cases the solution is to just do the thing that makes him so popular and influential yourself, not to bitch and moan while continuing your failed approach. I’m always seeing people talk about how their dad hates both parties and just discovered Jimmy Dore and loves him or whatever. What are Dore’s haters doing to appeal to ordinary disenfranchised working class people like this? They’ll say they want to, but their actions and methods say otherwise.
And if you can’t do what Dore has done to become so popular—appealing to ordinary people in an interesting and accessible way—you should probably rethink getting into the left political commentary thing anyway.”
Those are pretty strong words from someone who has never reported from on the ground, about someone, (Jimmy), who has also never reported from the ground– [EDIT] apart from questioning fans in relatively tranquil settings. [END EDIT] And with this kind of logic, we might as well say, “Part of the widespread vitriol toward Uncle Sam is due to jealousy about his popularity and influence… the solution is to just do the thing that makes him so popular and influential yourself, not to bitch and moan while continuing your failed approach.”
Do what Jimmy does? Lie? Fail to research? Cover things up? Jimmy’s a lefty— but first and foremost, Jimmy is about Jimmy— which means that he has more in common with the lying, cheating DNC and Uncle Sam than he does his legions of supporters, or the working class. Jimmy’s not about ending imperialism— he’s about promoting his brand.
How do I know?
Jimmy interviewed me twice. The first time was with TYT in 2016 to talk to about the series of nine raids (by my count) conducted by the FBI, and other agencies during the RNC. In the case of the raid on me and my documentary crew, there were about twenty law enforcement officials, two with assault rifles including the FBI, ICE, Homeland security, and local police officers. The whole debacle went down first thing in the morning at our friends’ house just outside of Cleveland. As I rubbed my eyes and became aware of the Federal Clown-Squad locking down on us, I set up GoPro cameras to make sure we got it all on tape. Within seconds, The Gestapo were demanding, “drop your pants,” as I tried to get dressed. Even after we repeatedly gave them explicit instructions that they didn’t have permission to come in, they did exactly that. To signal their total disregard of the US constitution, they even admitted on camera that they didn’t have a warrant. Finally, they went into my friends’ bedroom and forced them to come out at gunpoint.
The FBI agents on scene even went so far as to say that they raided us because of claims made by Alex Jones the previous day. A quick review of Alex Jones’ live feed showed him claiming communists had thrown “buckets of urine and feces” at him. This is especially interesting in light of Alex Jones’ admission that the Secret Service had given him an all-access pass at the RNC.
Watch that at 2:46:55 on JRE
See all of the interactions with Jones, as well as FPTV’s interview of me and my crew at 32:35
TYT didn’t air the interview or cover it in any way— and Jimmy didn’t lift a finger or make a peep when the video didn’t hit the airwaves. He didn’t tweet about it or rant on Facebook.
I realize that the footage could’ve been lost by a TYT camera-person or intern in the whirlwind of interviews at the DNC where the interview was conducted— but if Jimmy were truly the crusader for truth and justice he claims to be, then his ears would be on fire! No one was more committing to exposing the malfeasance of the Deep State than Jimmy Dore— right??!!
Flash forward to 2020. I talked to Jimmy again after a Tulsi Gabbard rally which he spoke at. I reminded him about the FBI interview— but had no recollection, and did that old-timey wheezy comedians’ laugh that comedians do when they’ve been caught in a lie. But, I let it slide and said it was water under the bridge.
Later than night, I bumped into Jimmy once more— this time, I interviewed him— and I appreciated him taking the time.
As 2020 progressed, I tried to keep Jimmy informed of what was going on at the political actions in the streets. In the days following George Floyd’s death, I documented women and children getting tear-gassed, and cops pulling AR—15s on kneeling protesters. I documented multiple drive by shootings. And mirroring the situation with Floyd, I documented a black man torn out of his car by the National Guard. He climbed on the hood of the car— but they ripped him away… then stole his car. He then jumped on the national guards’ Humvee— and they sped away with him on top. Jimmy retweeted one of the videos— but apparently didn’t feel much else was newsworthy.
It’s fine. Jimmy’s a clown. I’m a clown too. But when it comes to talking about what’s been going on in the streets, I’m an eye-witness, and Jimmy is still just a clown. When it comes to talking about the deep state, I’ve had countless visits and received a Grand Jury summons… I sued one of their clown agents (Edward Deck) and won. But Jimmy— Jimmy’s still a clown.
So— all of this informed me of what kind of person Jimmy was when he asked me to be on his show to talk about my new documentary, and the protests in the streets. I screen-captured the interview with Jimmy from my side— because I didn’t trust him.
Because my appearance made him look like the performative actor that he is who was never given his lines, he lied to me for ten days straight about publishing the interview. After ten days, I published. But Jimmy didn’t publish his highly-edited version until I published mine.
I guess Jimmy cares about politics— to the extent that it bolsters his brand and increases his subscriber count. Beyond that, he kind of feels like a bit of a shoulder-shrugger. He proved it when stumbled through his questions for me. Who are the ADL? Who is Kyle Rittenhouse? Trust everyone. Put Boogaloo boys on the show.
Shit got even funnier when he had on Glenn Greenwald who opined that you could trust the FBI when they say they’re only after right-wingers.
Remember Jimmy and Glenn ridiculing “journalists who have never been on the ground,” while Jimmy has never been on the ground and broadcasts from his million dollar home in Pasadena? Oh— but I can get fucked. Unicorn Riot— who are they?
Jimmy is going to Jimmy– so don’t get too out of shape about his Jimmy-ness. Just recognize it for what it is. You are his focus-group, and he reflects what you want to hear– not necessarily that which has been mined from reality.
Take it from a clown on the ground.
I’m still waiting to see that ground-breaking tell-all on the FBI raid, Jimmy!
Rod Webber is sick of your bullshit, and you should be too.
MIKE MOURA’S RECENT ARREST PROVIDES US WITH A CHANCE TO REFLECT UPON ALL THE TIMES HIS CHUD FRIENDS HAVE SPILLED THEIR GUTS TO ME ABOUT WHO AMONG THEM ARE WORKING WITH THE FBI “TO STOP ANTIFA.”
CHUDs are going to CHUD. And human-cells grown in monkey embryos spark ethical debate. But let’s first address the elephant-human chimera in the room. The FBI—otherwise known as the Federal Bureau of Incels.
The FBI has maintained files ranging far and wide, on numerous people, from Charlie Chaplin to Sonny Bono to Groucho Marx. More often than not, the people that end up on the FBI’s list are there because Agent Fuck-Stain believed whoever they were putting on the list to be an adherent to the teachings of the late philosopher Karl Marx. Let’s face it— The allegation that the FBI is a neutral and apolitical police force is just that— an allegation. For an agency which is supposed to exist to investigate crime on a federal level, these inter-dimensional-space vampires are targeting an awful lot of crusty lefties who have made the observation that capitalism does not work the way it was meant to work, and people should stop being pompous mung-peddlers.
But… then Donald Trump happened. He allowed for the inner American-douchebag to flourish, and suddenly the streets were awash with Proudboys, neo-Nazis and straight pride parades.
Instead of going after the cannibalistic neo-feudal douche-hammers, the FBI partnered with the douches to form douche task-forces against the anti-douche-baggers. And then the Capitol Riot happened, revealing that this douche-system was working too well. Despite the fact that Law Enforcement was encouraging the insurrectionists on January 6th, Law Enforcement were suddenly forced to arrest conservatives to maintain the illusion of impartiality.
So, it only makes sense that yesterday, card-carrying Neo-Nazi Mike Moura was picked up by the FBI. You see— At a Trump rally in August of 2019, Moura spotted me conversing with Kaitlin Bennett of InfoWars-fame. Kaitlin— an arch conservative, and a staunch douchebag was working undercover and wearing a “Fuck Trump” pin. She was picking on high-school kids and asking them questions about sexuality so she could take them out of context in her videos and make look stupid.
As luck would have it, I had micro-doses of level five inter-dimensional mind-control substance in my system. I used it to will Kaitlin in my direction. Moura looked on from the side with a grin as Kaitlin turned to me to say, “he’s a good example— they don’t have to be masculine.” I responded, “I like being as feminine as the next guy, and that’s why I take all the fetuses that Donald Trump gives me, and I sell them to Joe Rogan who uses it for Joe-Rogan-Super-Male-Vitality.” She was frozen like a vitamin-shilling deer in the headlights.
But still, I lured her back with my eyes, and Kaitlin responded, “what’s something good Trump has done so far?”
I replied, “he’s given ferrets a good place to live on top of his head.”
I saw Moura draw closer, and decided I wasn’t in the mood for it, so I ditched Kaitlin and made my way toward the man with the boot on his head, (Vermin Supreme). Vermin passed me one of those cheap metal vape pens. I was choking on this peculiar pony-elixir when Moura finally cornered me with a tap on the shoulder. I couldn’t recall saying Beetlejuice three times aloud— yet, this little Nazi leprechaun had appeared, so I decided to listen to what he had to say. It turns out, he had a lot that he wanted to tell me about the FBI as it related to his ultra-douchey rally-having friends.
It all somehow made sense— because ALL of Mike’s friends had been dishing to me for months about who was working with the Feds. It was really one awful bootlicking ouroboros.
To explain what I mean, let me take you back in time a year.
Mike was a part of a group called Resist Marxism, which was previously called Boston Free Speech, and soon to be re-branded as Super Happy Fun America. This is the group which put on The Boston Straight Pride Parade. At the time of this particular interaction with Moura, the group was lead by Samson Racioppi, Brandon Navom, John Medlar and Mark Sahady— all (except Medlar) were future participants in the January 6th shenanigans at the US Capitol, inspired by Q-Anon, or Trump, or some bullshit conservative fever dream.
By the fall of of 2018, Resist Marxism had put on numerous shitty rallies in the Northeast. For whatever reason, these knuckle-draggers had done absolutely no research on me, and were unaware that I was the balls-tripping hippy from “Flowers For Peace” and “This Is Vermin Supreme.” Perfect. Frankly— the less they knew, the better. I had presented myself as a neutral documentarian willing to listen to whatever they had to say, and had lengthy discussions with Brandon Navom, John Medlar, and even Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer. Gibson and his buddy Tiny Toese had been invited to brutalize the peace-loving citizens of Providence Rhode Island at a rally on October 6th of 2018. Toese’s presence made the rally much more violent than most. Along with Gregg Housh, we spoke to Gibson and the members of Resist Marxism at length— a story which deserves it’s own chapter in the book, and I will tell when I have the time.
A week after Providence the Proud Boys attacked a group of anti-fascists outside a Gavin McInnes event. Surveillance footage proved that the Proud Boys were the aggressors. According to Brandon Navom from Resist Marxism and Super Happy, the Proudboys told Resist Marxism that they couldn’t have any more rallies until the heat cooled down.
Jun 5, 2019, 8:30 PM
WEBBER: What was the reason for the April 6th cancellation?
NAVOM: Proud boys asked to push the event until after the NYC9 case was decided. bad press close to NYC could hurt their case.
Of course, later, Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman were convicted and sentenced to jail for the violent attacks. But, undeterred, Resist Marxism, re-branded as Super Happy Fun America and decided they were doing a Straight Pride Parade, with their new “founder” John Hugo, a buffoonish homophobic oaf who had run for Congress on the clown party, if memory serves right.
By June of 2019, longtime Resist Marxism participant/ associate, Julie Guinto realized that the concept of Straight Pride was just shitty. She started to write to me to tell me as much, and began spilling dirt on the group.
Jun 5, 2019, 8:45 PM
WEBBER: What’s up? Im all ears
GUINTO: I agree this parade is not a good idea. They r blinded by this media attention and thinks it’s a good thing. It’s quite ridic. And has potential to forever ruin their names.
Jun 15, 2019, 6:12 PM
GUINTO: Ya kno the real reason RM [Resist Marxism] went to shit was because Samson took it upon himself to befriend, meet, and share info, on at least a dozen occasions, to FBI agents. They claimed they wanted to end antifa and keep the right [meaning conservatives] safe at events.
That thought bears repeating. Resist Marxism, in their previous incarnation as Boston Free Speech held a rally in May of 2017. Future Capitol rioter Mark Sahady did security. Homophobic speeches were given, and calls for violent revolution against the US government were made, to uproarious applause. And yet, The FBI wanted to work with the organizers from these events to stop Anitfa, as opposed to the people calling for violence.
GUINTO continued: [Samson’s] dumbass beloved them. And he gave them all sorts of pictures and personal information of ppl from both sides[,] some of which eventually came out. He did this secretly from the group. That’s why PB [Proudboys] and other far-right groups want to murder him. Many ppl got visits from them [The FBI] after that because of him [Samson]. He Seriously thinks they r good guys W no motives or intent…. the fact that mark [SAHADY] or anyone wants anything to do w him baffles me and is a lil suspicious. He essentially ratted on all of them unknowingly
WEBBER: Well then… This is an awkward thing for me to know… And it raises many, many more questions… It’s kind of sad really
GUINTO: Ya it’s bizarre
GUINTO: Ya idk If u have seen his Twitter but that is what him [Samson] and Moura are feuding about. Moura mentions it many times. They went back and forth a lot towards beginning of month
GUINTO: He [Samson] told me they [The FBI] showed him pictures of him and other people to him where it was obvious that they were watching these people from a far
WEBBER: How long has it been going on?
GUINTO: This was in 8/2018. I was just going thru messages. He said they contacted sahady wanting “[to] work w him” lol. Samson said he didn’t belive it for a second then. [But] They both met w them [The Feds.] then mark wanted to to stop meeting w them because they kept wanting to meet. Ironically Sam goes and meets w them secretly to everyone even tho he knew it was a rouse but ended up falling for it
WEBBER: Wow… so that was before the big thing Oct 6… [the ultra-violent Resist Marxism rally in Providence.]
GUINTO: Oh. Yes That’s a good point
GUINTO: To make things even stranger. He claims to be a victim of gangs-talking and psyop shit. emf waves, voice to skull technology specifically. He claims that sometimes you wouldn’t kno what thoughts [are] ur own or suggested. Idk if he is batshit crazy or actually for real..!! That’s why he got involved in all of this
Well, shit— If these MK-ultra gang-stalking federal agents could turn a feeble-minded jackboot like Samson Racioppi into a puppet so easily, imagine what Vermin could do if he joined the Libertarian Party— he’d have them eating out of his hands, and dancing like marionettes.
GUINTO CONTINUES: That photographer [Mike Moura’s] girl [G]race was getting harrsssed online. He [Samson] took her to them [The FBI] to report it. She Turned over every picture she took from every event— and they used those pictures against other far right groups. She [Grace] then got bak w that guy [Mike] Moura and told him everything about the meetings and now they know Samson met w them [THE FBI] and that’s why they r [RESIST MARXISM] all fractured. Half don’t care and half think he’s a fed He became an informant and doesn’t even realize it. I think all because he just likes the attention and it’s makes him feel important.
GUINTO CONTINUES: He’s [Samson’s] written extensively and quite descriptive about it [gang-stalking on] online forums anonymously but I’ve read it and it’s fucking weird. He claims to be able to found [find] a way to hack the system bak In His mind. He’s told me they try [to] convince [him] to commit suicide. Ya no body would[,] I am sure. Especially since u would just be labeled as a nut job
WEBBER: he’s not wearing tinfoil yet is he?
Julie then got into an extensive explanation of a boy named Barron trump who could travel through time, and explained that John Hugo had just done an interview with barstool sports intentionally allowing them to show his apartment building so he could claim he was being targeted by Antifa. And this is a common theme. Without collaborating with the FBI and Barstool Sports to create the illusion of being persecuted by Antifa, where or where would they be?
JUMP FORWARD TO THE 2019 TRUMP RALLY WITH KAITLIN BENNETT
Resist Marxism members Mark Sahady, Samson Racioppi and Rob Burke AKA Burkco/ AKA “The Dragon Slayer,” were in attendance.
I had tried to speak to Sahady (the insurrectionist) — but at that time, there was no sign of Michael Moura. Sahady, (in the roll of good-cop) promoted the “virtues” of straight pride, posing for cameras and such, while, Burkco got in my face and yelled at me. Vermin actually told me earlier, that Burkco grabbed Vermin by the face, and tried to push him to the ground. I tried to speak to Samson as well- but he just screamed at me. It must’ve been a side effect of the gang-stalking and FBI mind-control.
And after I had my little Q&A with Kaitlin Bennett, along came Michael Moura, the guy who supposedly smuggled a quarter million in counterfeit bills for the FBI. At this time, Moura wasn’t working for the FBI (that we know of) or being arrested by the FBI. He was vehemently against the FBI. And it was at that point that he tapped me on the shoulder.
MOURA: That’s a familiar face.
WEBBER: Did you have fun promoting?
MOURA: Promoting what?
WEBBER: Were you here for Resist Marxism?
MOURA: I’m not with them.
MOURA: A long time ago, man.
WEBBER: So, you quit?
MOURA: I quit. A few months ago. The FBI shit’s the main reason why. It’s all true man. I don’t know who your insider is, [REFERRING TO BRANDON NAVOM AND JULIE GUINTO] I don’t care to know— but they’re absolutely right. One hundred percent.
Moura then complained that Samson and friends were fools, and that the FBI’s claims to “crack down on Antifa” were “bullshit.”
MOURA: No. That’s bullshit.
WEBBER: Of course it’s bullshit. They just wanna run the show on both sides.
MOURA: They said it to me day one. When they first started coming around— it was after Providence. I’m like dude, they don’t give a shit about Antifa.
Remember that according to Julie Guinto that Samson met with the FBI before the Providence rallies. I realize that this is all heresy and circumstantial evidence— but if what they were saying was true, Samson and friends were working with Federal Agents since 2018, and had staged half a dozen events, including a Straight Pride Parade simply to “crack down on Antifa.” It is no wonder that when all the lefties were simply walking home to go to their cars after Straight Pride that the Boston Police rioted against the peaceful lefties in the street. I was arrested myself for walking and filming. I was arrested a second time in the court— and my case went all the way up to the Supreme Judicial court, which resulted in Judge Sinnott getting investigated.
WEBBER: Providence was the whole thing that turned everything around, and that’s when I’m guessing that he, [Samson], got the motivation to push against the Proud Boys. Because from what BRANDON told me, there were going to be no more Resist Marxism rallies until the trial from the NYC 9. And that’s why they came up with a new gimmick, which is Straight Pride.
MOURA: The clearly bad rebrand.
WEBBER: It seems like they just put a new figurehead at the head of each new “group.”
Mike complained a while longer about his former friends collaborating with the FBI, and finally concluded:
MOURA: They’re all okay with it. Hugo, Brandon, Mark. Like I said— Antifa’s not my friend or anything— obviously, but— I’m not going to go to the FBI. He [Samson] claims to be an AnCap. An anarchist. He’s using the fucking state to— So, he uses the state to fuck with— persecute.
As night fell, SNHU Arena was swarming with red-hatted MAGA-heads— but like an ant’s nest, most of them had been inside being brainwashed by their furher. Trump must’ve been wrapping up, because these Progenitors of Pepe came pouring out of the stadium like a sea of MAGA-hatted cockroaches after having collectively jammed a tampon full of Trump vodka up their ass. Needless to say, there was vomiting— metaphorically, and physically.
Amidst this sea of MAGA-confusion, there was Kaitlin Bennet once again. I approached her asking:
WEBBER: Is the pooped pants rumor true?
BENNETT: Do you want it to be true?
WEBBER: Absoluuuu— hey— that’s weird.
BENNETT Are you into that? Are you into that? Are you into that? Oh my God!
WEBBER: Heyy, listen— I’m a thin man who only eats vegan food, so I get very confused when it comes to the things that come out.
BENNETT: THIS MAN LIKE TO WATCH HIS WIFE HAVE SEX WITH OTHER MEN!! He likes to watch! Why do you watch?
WEBBER: The only way to go forward is by taking pony-poop and converting it into methane.
This other Podcaster “Elad From Barely Informed”— probably a Fed too jumped in.
ELAD You watch people fuck your wife?
WEBBER: Absoluu— oh my god— what are you talking about?
BENNETT He wants other meant to fuck his wife. I heard it on twitter! HE LIKES TO WATCH HIS WIFE FUCK OTHER MEN — OH MY GOD THATS DISGUSTING!!
WEBBER Hey Ryan— talk to the man with the boot on his head!
Suddenly, Vermin appeared.
VERMIN: Hey gun-girl, where’s your gun? Show us your gun! You forgot your gun. Your gun was so big. Your gun was so nice. Your gun was so big, I want your gun.
And so here we are full circle. Mike Moura, the FBI, Kaitlin Bennett and all of America had an unhealthy obsession with guns. I’m all for the people having anything the government has— but that’s why if I was president, I’d order a government issued force-field for all Americans.
But—back to present-time— Mike Moura— the card-carrying Neo-nazi in question had just gotten out of jail. He was doing time for 34 counts of violating a harassment prevention order. According to court records, he had threatened to rape and murder a woman who was probably his ex— and apparently cut the brake lines on her car— because he’s a totally normal and well-adjusted person— just like all of these space mutants.
When Mike got out, he tried to buy a pile of guns off of an officer posing as a gun dealer. Somewhere in this period, he started working for the Feds and shuttled $260,000 in counterfeit money provided by the FBI from the Boston area to New York and Rhode Island.
Having spoken to Brandon Navom about the whole debacle in late 2019, Navom theorized that Law Enforcement were letting Resist Marxism have these rallies for the purpose of shutting them down. He said, “they did the same thing in Charlottesville.” And yet, it appeared as if the Feds were actively working with the Fash to encourage them to have these rallies. If this was the case, it would suggest that *all* of this bullshit in the streets was nothing more than an elaborate honeypot orchestrated by Law Enforcement to justify their existence and tangentially kick lefties in the nuts. Build up the Fash, let them fight it out with the left, then throw as many as you can in jail.
I mentioned to Brandon that one of his friends claimed Samson was working with the FBI. Brandon denied this, but when I said, “how about someone from Patriot Front,” (Mike Moura’s group)— Brandon gave me a pregnant pause.
In October of 2019, Moura showed up with Patrick Soutter to crash a screening of my documentary about Super Happy Fun America and their shitty Straight Pride movement. In order to get them out, I turned on a camera— and Moura once again spelled out Samson Racioppi’s work with the FBI. Soutter compared Super Happy to The Beatles, calling Mark Sahady their John Lennon.
All I know is that Vermin’s mind-control solution was the good shit— because when those red-hatted Maggots flooded out of the stadium, Vermin worked them like marionettes and got them to chant “suck trump’s cock,” over and over again.
This is the fash-to-Fed Ouroboros— or pipeline if you prefer. The fash were licking the Feds as the feds licked the fash in an attempt to “stop antifa.” At the end of the day, the whole lot of them are happy to chant over and over— SUCK TRUMPS COCK. SUCK TRUMPS COCK.
Rod Webber is sick of your bullshit, and you should be too.
For one week in October of 2020, every maggot-sucking conservative publication under the sun was screaming bloody murder about the “Antifa Satanists” who burned an effigy of Donald Trump crying “hail to the chaos Gods” as they danced in glee. (VIDEO)
We take protest very seriously– both when it is silly, and when it is serious. Barrett Brown said it best in the film– we are “ethical trolls.” However, based upon the court case, they seem to think I’m a violent criminal. Based on the dozens of articles they would seem to think we are blood-thirsty vampires intent on harvesting your organs to keep Joe Biden on life support.
Well, that day in October, we gave ourselves a silly name “AntifA Soros Chaos Magick” to counter-protest the even sillier “Super Happy Fun America,” a Proudboys spin-off who stormed the Capitol and who were responsible for Straight Pride the year before.
We burned a Blue Lives Matter flag, and an effigy of Trump, then ate Trump’s heart straight out from his chest, (ala Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom). But it wasn’t just spectacle– there was actually an entire script leading up to the gore which was designed to bring light to the E. Jean Carroll rape case with Lauren Pespisa playing Carroll and Embry Galen playing Trump.
Alex Jones did a lengthy segment saying, “Antifa members conduct occult ritual in Boston streets, eat bloody heart symbolic of Trump.” He then proceeded to bring on an “Illuminati Expert,” Dr. Leo Zagami who said we were “courting Satan,” while Alex pretended he was a Christian and called us “absolutely evil. INFOWARS VIDEO
Ian Miles Cheong wrote, “Antifa performs a Satanic ritual. Yes, that’s a heart,” evidently suggesting that he believed we had actually ate Donald Trump’s heart. Ian went on to say, “Evil is in plain sight and it walks among us.”
Gateway Pundit did an article called “Evil Among Us” with the sub-header, “Leftist Antifa Performs Satanic Ritual in Street and Eat a Heart Symbolic of President Trump.”
There are too many articles like this to list. So, imagine my surprise when the Boston Police decided to drop me a love letter in the mail over a month later telling me to get my ass to court.
I was charged with disorderly conduct. This is not a big charge– but it is criminal, and it is a felony. And if they jam you up on some trumped-up bullshit, it will make it easier to push for a harsher penalty when they “catch” you the next time.
I was made to go to a probable cause hearing. When they were done reading the charges to me, they asked what I had to say for myself. I replied, “I dunno, I came her to listen to your bullshit.” The Judge Magistrate should have dropped it then and there. However, when the cop who brought forward the complaint (Officer Robert Lundbohm) filled out the paperwork, he made it look like I was randomly setting cardboard on fire and destroying property. The two big things he left out was that we were clearly engaged in political protest, and the property was my property. And when you are politically protesting, it is no longer “disorderly conduct,” it is legitimate first amendment protected free speech.
Naturally, my attorney, Murat Erkan wrote a kick-ass motion to this effect, and the case was dismissed on arraignment via Nolle Pros.
All’s well that ends well.
If you are in need of a criminal attorney, I would strongly suggest the services of Murat Erkan of Erkan Law Firm in Boston.
Now comes the Defendant and respectfully requests, pursuant to Mass. R. Crim. P. 13, that this Honorable Court dismiss the instant complaint. As reasons therefor:
The complaint application fails to set forth probable cause. Commonwealth v. McCarthy, 385 Mass. 160, 163 (1982); Commonwealth v. DiBennadetto, 436 Mass. 310, 313 (2002).
The complaint affiant knowingly and intentionally concealed exculpatory evidence from the clerk magistrate, which was material to a determination of probable cause, and thereby impaired the integrity of the clerk magistrate hearing. Commonwealth v. O’Dell, 392 Mass. 445, 450 (1984); Commonwealth v. Bell, 83 Mass. App. Ct. 61, 62 (2013).
The Defendant requests an evidentiary hearing on this motion.

MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN SUPPPORT OF
MOTION TO DISMISS (McCARTHY; O’DELL)
On December 14, 2020, the Boston Municipal Court issued a complaint against the Defendant charging a single count of disorderly conduct, based on the sworn complaint application which Officer Robert Lundbohm submitted. Officer Lundbohm submitted police report no. 202076836 in support of his complaint.
THE COMPLAINT APPLICATION
In his complaint application, Officer Lundbohm stated that on October 18, 2020, during a political protest, the Defendant “used accelerant” to set “a card board cut out [sic] on fire … in the middle of a public way, creating a dangerous and hazardous situation” for “dozens of protestors as well as the police officers” at the intersection of Dartmouth Street and Huntington Avenue, which “served no legitimate purpose.”
THE INTENTIONAL OMISSION OF MATERIAL,
In his report, Officer Lundbohm asserted that he watched video footage from several sources, which “clearly” showed the Defendant’s actions in setting the “card board cut out [sic]” on fire.
That same footage reveals that the Defendant did not set fire to a mere piece of cardboard. Rather, the Defendant set fire to an eight-foot cardboard effigy of then-president Donald Trump.
The footage reveals that the burning of the effigy was accompanied by various comments from participants and protesters including:
“I am here on behalf of all the women [Donald Trump’s] filthy hands have groped, in order to do a ritual, to make sure his filthy paws don’t touch our beautiful country anymore.”
“I am Donald Trump, and while I am evil I am no more evil than these bootlicking politicians out here today. All these cocksuckers over here worship me like a god. So I stand here as a sacrifice for what is right.”
 See Attachment A, DVD-ROM depicting the performance.
 Mr. Webber is a well-known activist, satirist, actor and director. The burning of the effigy was performed for inclusion in a screenplay entitled, 2020: the Dumpster Fire, a political satire / documentary planned for 2021 release to studio audiences. Footage and trailers related to this feature film were widely disseminated online and the open-source social media outlets, which Officer Lundbohm admits he relied upon in identifying and charging Mr. Webber.

“Fuck Donald Trump, and fuck all these alt-right white nationalists that keep coming here.”
“Fuck the Nazis.”
In sum, the footage reveals that the Defendant burned an effigy of Donald Trump as an act of political expression and social commentary, as evidenced by the effigy itself and his words and actions, as well as the words and actions of those who participated in the demonstration.
By omitting this information, the affiant concealed the unquestionably “legitimate purpose” of his conduct: the exercise of his 1st Amendment right to political dissent and discourse, which “legitimate purpose” negates liability under the disorderly conduct statute.
The Complaint Application Fails to Establish Probable Cause.
A complaint application which fails to set forth “facts sufficient to establish probable cause as to each element of the offense charged,” must be dismissed. Commonwealth v. Ilya I., 470 Mass. 625, 627 (2015) (emphasis added); Commonwealth v. DiBennadetto, 436 Mass. 310, 312 (2002), citing Commonwealth v. McCarthy, 385 Mass. 160 (1982).
As applied to the Defendant’s conduct, the affiant was required to set forth probable cause that the Defendant “created a hazardous or physically offensive condition by an act that served no legitimate purpose of the defendant’s.” Mass. Model Jury Inst. 7.160 (2009 ed.) (emphasis added); citing, inter alia, Alegata v. Commonwealth, 353 Mass. 287, 302-304 (1967) (incorporating elements set forth in Model Penal Code § 250.2(a) & (c) (1962).
The “no legitimate purpose” element is the most crucial element of the charged offense. This is so because it is precisely this limitation which stands as a bulwark against the use of a disorderly charge to suppress free speech, in violation of the 1st amendment to the United States Constitution and art. 16 of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights. Absent proof on this element, the statute as applied to expressive conduct is per se overbroad and unconstitutional. Commonwealth v. a Juvenile, 368 Mass. 580 (1975). Stated simply, the disorderly statute reaches only conduct “which involves no lawful exercise of a First Amendment right.” Id., at 599.
The complaint application contained no evidence, let alone “sufficient evidence,” on the “legitimate purpose” element of the charged offense. Consequently, the complaint should never have issued and must be dismissed.
2 The Affiant Intentionally Omitted Material, Exculpatory Information from the Complaint Application.
“After the issuance of a [criminal] complaint, a motion to dismiss will lie for … a violation of the integrity of the proceeding[.]” Commonwealth v. DiBennadetto, 436 Mass. 310 , 313 (2002), citing Commonwealth v. O’Dell, 392 Mass. 445 (1984).
In O’Dell, the SJC held that dismissal was appropriate where “the integrity of the grand jury proceeding was impaired by an unfair and misleading presentation to the grand jury of a portion of a statement attributed to the defendant without revealing that an exculpatory portion of the purported statement had been excised.” Id., at 446-447.
In O’Dell, a witness placed O’Dell as the getaway driver in a robbery committed by one Gordon Preston. At the grand jury presentment, an officer testified that O’Dell admitted he was the driver of the van, and that, when Preston hopped in the passenger seat and said, “let’s get the hell out of here,” he obliged. The officer failed to testify that O’Dell denied any knowledge that Preston had committed a robbery. The Court held the omission distorted the evidence presented to the grand jury, warranting dismissal. Id. at 447-449. The concealed evidence in this case was even more direct: here, the affiant reported that the Defendant set fire to a “card board cut out [sic],” for “no legitimate purpose.” In
fact, he well knew that the Defendant had a legitimate purpose – indeed, the most legitimate purpose in a free and democratic society – the purpose of free political speech and dissent.
By concealing indisputable evidence that the Defendant had a “legitimate purpose,” Officer Lundbohm grossly distorted the evidence and assailed the fundamental integrity of the proceeding.
The complaint must be dismissed.
The Defendant respectfully requests that this Honorable Court allow his Motion to Dismiss.
