Trump’s “deadly force” law challenged in New Hampshire



Chris Balch and I just took on the first of two laws stemming from New Hampshire’s draconian and deadly “decorum” laws. Today’s hearing was about how “security” is defined. Soon, with Chris’ help, we will tackle the law NH which the Trump campaign cites which says “deadly force” can be used to maintain decorum. Also, I told everyone in the room, I could legally kill them– and they should thank me for not doing so.

Many, many thanks to Chris for making this happen!


Flowers For War

flowers for war

Let’s face it. Peace hasn’t worked out. Instead of passing out “flowers for peace,” it’s time to start passing out “flowers for war.”

Since New Hampshire law permits unlicensed security personnel as part of Presidential entourages to use lethal force, I am actively seeking individuals who would be interested in joining my campaign as security, so that we can start eliminating the competition. Don’t worry— it is 100% legal, and I believe that this is really the only way going forward.

No pay, but I guarantee it will look good on your resume. DM for info. Serious inquiries only.

Here are the laws: RSA 106-F:4, XIII allows unlicensed yahoos from out of state, traveling with national candidates to legally be called “security.” Coupled with RSA 627:5, III, such a person can use “Deadly force when he reasonably believes such to be necessary.”

Webber v. Trump assault case to proceed

deck in keene

The judge has ordered my case against Trump and his minions to move forward.

Fun fact: I’ve been arrested eight times since the 2016 election. But, this is the case that’s taken the longest. Here’s the backstory:

On Oct. 12th, 2015, Vermin and I attended the “No Labels Problem Solvers Convention,” a multi-candidate event comprised of Democrats and Republicans ranging from Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump. It was a rowdy event geared toward college-aged kids, featuring “Problem Solver Man,” in green spandex played by Zach Fox of Fat Camp Films.

After Donald Trump briefly took to the stage, there were some issues with the sound system for the Q&A, so I took the opportunity to politely stand and ask Trump a question. I was in the front row and reminded Trump he was roughed up at a Trump rally in Rochester the week before. At that rally, Trump had called on me to recite my favorite bible verse. I replied, “First Timothy 3, 1-7. It is noble to seek the office of overseer, but he who does, should be above reproach, sober-minded, not quarrelsome, married only once and not a great lover of money.” In Rochester, Trump replied, “oh boy, am I in trouble, am I in trouble.” As I was trying to leave Rochester, I received many kidney punches, and had my camera swatted to the floor, ruining most of the footage— but I was able to salvage some, proving it had indeed happened.

At No Labels, Trump responded, “you look healthy to me,” at which point they were plugging in the PA, making Trump’s response inaudible from where I was. At this time, Eddie Deck Junior, (who had attacked Efrain Galicia in New York City the month before), tapped me on the shoulder and told me if I went to the back of the room to go to the mic I could ask my question. Suspecting I was being deceived, I nonetheless followed through with the political theater, and went to the back of the room. Of course, there was no mic, and when I turned around there were a wall of Trump staff stopping me from going back. I reminded them it wasn’t a Trump rally. A Trump staffer, Fred Doucette told me, “you want the mic, you’re not getting the mic.” The situation escalated, with Eddie when I challenged his jurisdiction, reminding him that he had no authority there. I asked his name, and Eddie responded, “you wanna know my name— you’re about to see my name all over your face.” This was a clear threat. Eddie and other staffers began signaling to off-duty police which were hired by No Labels as security, and “Officer” James Pittman grabbed me from behind without warning, as Eddie joined in. The two of them worked in tandem, throwing me over a table, ala WWE Wrestling.

I was again thrown to the ground and roughed up some more by Deck. He was taken outside by the rent-a-cops who briefly detained him, then released him. When off of the property, I spoke to Sgt. Alan Aldenberg, and asked to press charges against Deck and his officers. Aldenberg walked back to his men, then came back and arrested me. This is what is known as a retaliatory arrest. Since the officers were in uniform, Deck was liable under color of law, 42 USC section 1983. Through respondeat superior, this makes Trump and the Campaign responsible for the actions of its employees. No Labels is also responsible for it’s employees, (the off-duty cops).

I spent a good chunk of 2016 proving my own innocence, and by 2018, I put forward a civil case, naming No Labels, the Manchester Police, Trump, Deck and all of their shell companies. On Jan 2nd, 2020, the court denying claims against the Radisson Hotel.

The good news is that as Vermin and I were arriving last night for Vermin’s appearance speaking to the New Hampshire Libertarian Party, I received an ORDER from the Judge saying that the core case against Eddie Deck and his shell company XMark was valid, and would move forward. Deck is being represented by Trump’s lawyers— and I’ve been holding off about a dozen of them since 2018, through 153 lengthy motions. In their defense, Trump’s lawyers cited a series of laws, which jointly claim a security guard for a presidential candidate can use lethal force to maintain decorum if they feel it is necessary.RSA 106-F:4, XIII allows unlicensed yahoos from out of state, traveling with national candidates to legally be called “security.” Coupled with RSA 627:5, III, such a person can use “Deadly force when he reasonably believes such to be necessary.” I guess I should be glad that Trump’s goons merely went WWE on me.

I approached State Representative Chris Balch about this troubling law, and Balch is working to get the law changed.

Though a number of my claims have been dismissed, they have been dismissed improperly. In the footnotes of pages 2-3 of the Judge’s order, (likely written by a court clerk), the court opines, “The appendices are comprised of information provided by Webber about some of the defendants and his communications with them.” The continue, “Webber did not provide copies of emails, videos, photos, articles, or documents. Therefore, the items referred to in the appendices do not provide evidence that can be considered by the court.”

Unfortunately, this incorrect statement by the court has been used as the basis to dismiss the vast majority of claims which have been dropped. We can simply look to document 75 in the case to the appendices section to see that all of the email correspondences between No Labels and the Manchester Police have been submitted in full. Moreover, links to videos were included, since physical DVDs or other media cannot be submitted to the court.

The Standard of Review in a civil case only requires that the Plaintiff allege facts. It is up to the jury to decide whether the facts presented by the Plaintiff are true. As stated by the Judge on page 2 of her order, “In considering a motion to dismiss under Federal Rule of
Civil Procedure 12(b)(6), the court accepts the well-pleaded factual allegations in the complaint as true and construes reasonable inferences in the plaintiff’s favor,” citing Breiding v.Eversource Energy, 939 F.3d 47, 49 (1st Cir. 2019). The ORDER continues, “A claim is facially plausible ‘when the plaintiff pleads factual content that allows the court to draw the reasonable inference that the defendant is liable for the misconduct alleged,’” citing Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 678 (2009).

While this case might not seem like much in contrast to Trump’s impeachment, or his highly questionable assassination of an Iranian General on a diplomatic mission— if only the corporate media was paying attention to the case, they might have noticed that Trump was using it to say he can kill anyone anywhere— and for all we know, Mr. Trump is already working on stealing Vermin’s platform promise to execute all Americans. Only time will tell.

No War on Iran (Boston Protest) 

No War on Iran protest in Boston\

Politicians sending other people’s children to die in foreign wars is as American as cops being criminals afraid to show their face on camera.

But, today, the people of Boston told President Cheeto and his overlords that starting a war with Iran is fucked— just like all war is fucked.

Of course, the protest had protesters who had come to lick the boots of ol’ Donnie.
In the end, everyone made it home safe— unlike the victims of America’s immoral wars.

Letter to David Datuna on the future of art


Hello, David.

I’m the artist that followed up your “hungry artist” performance with a performance of my own, (on December 8th), using lipstick on the wall where “Comedian” once hung. As I’m sure you know, I was arrested for my efforts, which created a memorable performance, and a brand new piece of visual art for the world to contemplate.

Tomorrow, I will be arraigned in a Miami court for creating these works of art where you previously created your highly respected piece.

Sadly, there are those who have said your consumption of “Comedian” amounted to the destruction of private property worth $120,000. It has even been suggested that art of this nature is merely a front for the wealthy to hide their financial assets, and this was nothing more than a publicity stunt or hoax to artificially increase the perceived value of a work which is merely “an idea.” Of course, the Perrotin Gallery disagreed with this notion, and decided not to press charges against you. Naturally, they believed you had made a new work, and they made a statement saying that art was the idea, and so no harm was done.

Likewise, no damage was done by my performance piece and visual creation. At the time of my performance, a representative of the gallery said that they wouldn’t press charges against me. What is troubling, is that when I have reached out to Perrotin, they have ignored me.

Without the gallery, or someone like yourself speaking out on my behalf, I will be put on trial. As a result, a judge or a jury may be put in a position to legally decide what is and what isn’t art. Not only would this establish precedent for artists like ourselves in the future, it might put the Miami Beach Police in a position where they would have to open an investigation into you and the Perrotin Gallery.

The personal injustice I suffered being put in shackles, and being forced to sleep on a cold prison bunk is certainly nothing like the injustices Ai Weiwei has suffered— nor those branded as “degenerate artists” by Adolph Hitler. But, if you and the art world choose to turn your collective backs on me tomorrow, you must ask yourself what will happen to you or the next artist who is put in this position?

I expect to rack up substantial expenses traveling back and forth to court, and fighting this legal battle, will be a Sisyphusian task. But it is a battle I am willing to fight— not just for myself— but so that if Marcel Duchamp were to walk into Art Basel next year, he would not be ashamed of his legacy. Of course, I have known from the moment I was put in handcuffs that this was also a part of the performance.

So, the question becomes, what is your part now? Will you speak up, or will you hang your head?

Do you have any statement that you wish me to share with the court, or future artists of the world?

I am cc’ing Perrotin on this message.

I hope you are well.


Rod Webber

Update: it was suggested that Art Basel itself might be responsible for the legal actions, so I reached out to them. Here’s the letter:

Hi. My name is Rod Webber. I am the artist who was arrested on Dec. 8th for contributing a work of art to the Perrotin Gallery with lipstick. I am being arraigned tomorrow for this “art crime.” I was told by Perrotin Gallery they would not press charges. I have not heard back from them or David Datuna, so I can only guess that Art Basel is behind these punitive measures. I have written a letter to David outlining why this is all nonsense, and will set legal precedent for artists in the future. Not speaking up for me will result in a judge or jury deciding what art is. I hope you will speak up. Here is a link to the letter:

Shady Journalism/ Poisoned Ecosystem

a will.png

More of how the news ecosystem works:
I was approached by Barney Riley of NewsFlare, (a news aggregator), after I sprayed Epstein’s mansion on Dec 10th. Curious to view the poisonous ecosystem these aggregators have created, on Sunday, I posted my video of the Biden rally in New Hampshire. I included interviews with the protesters, and their names– like Will Turbitt, from Demand The Truth, who made the “pervert” remark which the news outlets are using.
From there, I got a notice saying that my video was promoted to the Associated Press, Yahoo, Msn, Aol, Dailymotion, Generic feed, and Reuters. Shortly after that, I got a notice saying that the clip sold to the NY Post for 45 pounds.
However, soon thereafter, it was published on MSN, DailyMotion, LiveLeak and One News Page, unaltered, and without payment.
Late yesterday, the video popped up with my name cropped out on USA Today, The DesMoines Register, MSN… possibly more. The payment from the New York Post was immediate. Newsflare has not contacted me at all regarding payment for the other outlets.

Countless other outlets have published articles without my video– and to my knowledge, I have not seen any of them (other than mine) that credit Will Turbitt as the man in the video– other than Will Turbitt’s channel, of course.
Obviously, the authors writing these articles weren’t even there– but millions of people read from these “journalistic” publications on a regular basis.
Whatever you think of Joe Biden or the protesters is not the point. The fact that NewsFlare and these other outlets possibly stole it isn’t the point. (I use plenty of their videos too.) The point is that I metaphorically dumped some food-coloring into the system, and we can see how the garbage spreads. Give it some thought.
I have reached out to Barney Riley at NewsFlare, but at the time of publication, he has not responded.
