Rep. Tom McClintock: In Defense of Governor Newsom

 Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Roseville) took to the floor of the House of Representatives to praise--yes, PRAISE--Governor Newsom for violating his own COVID-19 edicts, orders, and lockdowns when he went to the French Laundry restaurant and dined with 20 other people, no masks, no social distancing, and no fear about catching or passing on COVID-19 to someone else.

The hypocrisy of these arrogant government elites sparked Rep. Tom McClintock to actually praise the Governor for doing what every American should be able to do: take care of themselves, live their lives, practice common sense, and not allow the overbearing regulations about COVID-19 weigh down on their lives.



Read his speech below, and let us all do what Governor Newsom did and live our lives as we see fit!

In Defense of Governor Newsom

November 19, 2020 
Speeches
Congressman McClintock delivered the following remarks on the House floor:
 
In Defense of Governor Newsom
November 19, 2020
 
Mr. Speaker:
 
I rise this morning in defense of Governor Gavin Newsom who recently defied his own idiotic Covid edicts as he partied at one of the few restaurants that he has not yet forced out of business.  I defend him because he was doing what we all once did in a free society: make our own decisions over what risks we are willing to run and what precautions we are willing to take according to our own circumstances to protect our own health.
 
Yes, Covid is a nasty bug and a quarter of a million Americans have died while having it.  But this isn’t the Bubonic Plague.  The CDC’s best estimate is that if you are under 49, your chance for surviving Covid – it you get it – is 99.92 percent.  Even for those over 70 the survival rate is 94.6 percent.  
 
Forty percent who get it don’t even know they have it.  Yet we have allowed our officials to ruin our quality of life over it – destroying countless businesses, throwing tens of millions into unemployment, robbing our children of their educations and shredding our most cherished rights as Americans.
 
Governor Newsom’s night of partying should be a wake-up call to every American.
 

Every time we step outside our homes, the risks we face multiply.  A free society assumes that its citizens are competent to assess those risks, balance them against the avoidance costs, and to manage their decisions in a generally responsible way.  It’s called common sense, and it’s a necessary prerequisite for self-government and liberty.
 
The choices of an octogenarian with emphysema might be very different from those of a healthy governor in California.  Only a fool would claim the omniscience to make an informed judgment for every person in every circumstance in every community.  Sadly, this crisis has revealed that fools abound in public office and that a fool with power can quickly become a petty tyrant.    
 
Which brings us back to Governor Newsom.  These government nannies love to tell us that they’re just following the science.  What does the science tell us?  It tells us that Covid poses virtually no risk to children but can be severe among the elderly.  So, what did these lockdown leftists do?  They closed all the schools and ordered infected patients into nursing homes!
 
The science tells us that outdoor transmissions of the virus are extremely rare and that 80 percent of infections occur in people’s homes.  So what did these lockdown leftists do?  They closed our beaches, parks and campgrounds and ordered people to stay at home!
 
The science tells us that obesity is a contributing factor to the severity of the disease.  So what did these lockdown leftists do?  They closed all the gyms and kept the liquor stores open!
 
These lockdowns haven’t saved lives.  The states with the most stringent lockdowns generally have the highest mortality rates from Covid.  Utah stayed open while next door, Colorado shut down.  Utah currently has half the Covid mortality rate and 3/4 the unemployment rate as Colorado.  But the lockdowns have cost countless lives from suicides, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, and deferred health screenings and treatments.  
 
Recently, Governor Newsom demanded that restaurant diners replace their masks after every bite, but also minimize the times they take them off.  I guess that means take very big bites.  Thanksgiving dinners are allowed in California, but only when they are held outside, guests are seated six feet apart, and they last no more than two hours.  It’s all right to use the bathroom, but only if it is frequently sanitized. Otherwise, presumably you’ll just have to use the bushes.  And for God’s sake – NO SINGING!
 
I have wondered how much longer the American people are going to tolerate this nonsense?  
 
So let us not criticize Governor Newsom.  Perhaps he has just offered us all deliverance from his own folly.   
 
Nor should we criticize the California legislators who ignored travel and quarantine restrictions to junket to Hawaii.  Nor should we ridicule Speaker Pelosi for choosing not to wear a mask in a hair salon that was forced to close for the rest of us.  
 
Good for them.  They’re demonstrating by their own actions the freedom that every American citizen needs to reclaim from these very same people.  The governor SHOULD make his own decisions about running his own life.  I only ask that he and his ilk would stop telling the rest of us how to run ours.

Republican Women Federated By-Laws: "[Men] cannot hold office, have a voice or vote"

The reports are coming out fast and furious.

I just received a report that this Gina Roberts is threatening the Republican Women Federated groups with lawsuits if they do not play along with the delusion that he is a she.

Gina Roberts, a man pretending to be a woman
who bullies women to believe that he is a woman

Wow!

Here's some information I received from one RWF member, and what the President of her Republican Women Federated told her (yes, that President was a woman::


Biologically, morally, and per natural law, Gina Roberts is a MAN.

I do not care if he was born with mixed genitalia. I do not care if he somehow used the corrupted legal process in the state of California to change his birth certificate to read "female."

He was born a man. Gina Roberts is a man. The notion that he could intimidate groups and force them to recognize him as a woman is bullying to the extreme.

Besides, the National Federation of Republican Women have their by-laws, and they are not pretty clear about where men are permitted within the organization:

Here's the text of the key bylaws that pertain to this issue (click here for the entire National Federation of Republican Women bylaws)

Local Club Associate Members

1.       Republican women who have primary membership in a federated local club are eligible for associate membership in local clubs upon payment of the required annual dues.  Associate members cannot hold office, vote, or be counted for the purpose of determining the number of delegates to national or state federation meetings or conventions.   

2.       Republican men are eligible for associate membership upon payment of the required annual dues to the local club.  They cannot hold office, have a voice or vote or be counted for the purpose of determining the number of delegates to national or state federation meetings or conventions.  Republican men who are associate members in local clubs do not become members of the state federation or the NFRW.

C. Local clubs, including virtual / e-clubs which meet utilizing technology, shall consist of ten or more women who form a permanent organization, adopt bylaws in compliance with the NFRW bylaws, pay state and NFRW dues and service charges, and hold at least five meetings within a twelve-month period if unusual circumstances prohibit more frequent meetings.


Section 6.  Removal From and Reinstatement to NFRW Membership:

A. A two-thirds vote of the NFRW Executive Committee is required for removal of any state federation or federated local club from membership.

B. A local club in a federated state at the request of the state executive committee, or in an unfederated state, may be removed from membership by a two-thirds vote of the NFRW Executive Committee for any of the following reasons:

1.       Bylaws which are in material conflict with the NFRW Bylaws

2.       Non-payment of dues for the total membership and the current service charge

3.       Failure to support the Republican Party ticket, advocating a split ticket, supporting a candidate on an opposition ticket or actions which are in conflict with the NFRW Bylaws

4.       Failure to comply with the NFRW membership rules or

   5.       Affiliation with any political organization which is not officially recognized as working in concert with the NFRW and the Republican National Committee.


Clearly, the bylaws say that men cannot serve as officers!

Individual members of the federation of Republican Women groups need to file a formal complaint with the NFRW asking that the Escondido group be removed for violation their bylaws!

Gina Roberts is a man, and now he is bullying other women to force them to accept that he is a man. This is Stalinist groupthink at its worst.

This cannot continue!

It's time to hold these different chapters  accountable. We cannot stand by and allow this madness!

Tolerant and Inclusive: Man Pretending to Be A Woman Takes Liberty and Rights, But Threatens Lawsuits If You Disagree With Him

UPDATE [11.25.20]:

Yes, indeed, Gina Roberts threatens Republican Women Federated Groups if they do not toe the lie and accept his delusion:


ORIGINAL POST:

Gina Roberts bullies women who do not agree with his delusion.

He got into an extended discussion on Facebook some time ago, in which he went out of his way--yes, HIS--to justify his decision to pretend to be a woman and make everyone else go along with the fraud.

Just to recap, here he celebrates getting elected President of the Escondido Republican Women Federated:


When I questioned him about this, here are the responses that I received from him:



A man pushes this lie that he is a woman.

He then claims that this is "pro-rights" and "pro-liberty". Really.

Of course, I had more words to respond to that:



Notice that in order to enforce his "right" to use a women's restroom, he has "3 or 4 organizations to file and fight the lawsuit for me."

So, this man pretending to be a woman, who claims that he is pro-rights and pro-liberty, is all about using the force of government and legal bullying to get his way and make everyone expect the lie that he is a she.

Really.

Oh, and it gets better--or worse:


Earlier in the above thread, Gina played the "Christianity" and "Jesus" card, as though to make me feel bad for speaking the truth and calling out Gina's behavior. That did not work. I cited Jesus' own words during His earthly ministry, in which he outlined clearly and completely that God made them "male and female." God did a good job, and there is no reason for anyone person to push back on this:

"Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?" (Isaiah 45:9)

Gina tried every effort to shame me and threaten with lawsuits, but I am not intimidated by this.

Of course, this is not the first time that MR. Gina Roberts has brought up lawsuits and legal action:


For the longest time, people have rebuffed concerns from people such as myself about this LGBT agenda. They would tell me "Arthur, just live and let live. This has nothing to do with you. What do you care what two consenting adults do in private, or whether a man wants to pretend that he is a she?"

This is the reason why. The above examples are reasons why. This nonsense, this fraud is corrupting our culture, and teaching people to embrace lies and endorse delusions. This hurts children. This makes public spaces unsafe and insecure. This promotes laws and undermines the fundamental fabric of trust and truth which is essential for men and women to dwell safely and live freely.

This LGBT agenda is a political force that demands and demands, all while claiming to be tolerant and inclusive. This is not tolerance. This is tyranny, and it must be rebuffed and rejected full-bore and outright.

Contact the Escondido Republican Women Federated, the California Republican Women Federated, and the National Federation of Republican Women, and DEMAND that the Escondido chapter remove the man pretending to be a woman, or demand that leadership strip the charter away from the federated group entirely.

Open Letter to Escondido Republican Women Federated Co-President: No Justification for A Man to Be President of a Woman's Club

    Darlene Hansen, Co-President
Escondido Republican Women Federated
 

Dear Darlene Hansen:

Your answer below is the worst example of gaslighting that I have ever read from someone justifying this mental illness called transgenderism.


Gaslighting: the act of manipulating a person by forcing them to question their thoughts, memories, and the events occurring around them. 


No, Gina Roberts is not a woman. He is a man. I do not care how big the plastic bags may be that he shoved into his chest, and if he cut off all the special parts he was born with south of his beltline.





A man cannot become a woman. There is no such thing as a "transgender woman", either. There are over 9,000 chromosomal markers inside of each person's DNA which indicate male or female. All the cosmetic surgery and hormonal inducements cannot change someone's sex. It is simply not possible.


I do not care if there is some purported legal document in which Gina Roberts removed his naturally recognized sex and replaced it with "female". Pieces of paper and legal changes do not undermine or thwart natural law and biological fact. The laws of nature remain advancing, and even our own United States Constitution recognizes the pre-eminence of natural law (cf. Article one, Section 8, Line 10, in which "law of nations" refers to "the laws of nature as applied to nations".)


The Escondido Republican Women Federated members had no right or business promoting a man pretending to be a woman. This is an attack, an affront on conservative and constitutional values, on the California Republican Party, the state charter and the national platforms, and it's an assault on reality itself. I don't care what the so-called bylaws of the National Federation of Republican Women have to say. And for the record, I have reached out to the national leadership as well as the state leadership, and they have not even provided me the by-laws that somehow "forced" you to comply with this madness. 


There can be no conservatism, no peace, no liberty apart from reality and from the natural laws and morals which underpin reality. Conservatism is not just about cutting taxes,  And the libertarian creed "Live and Let Live" is too broad and even naive to mean anything, especially when it leads to unsettled, mentally ill men pretending to be women and undermining women's sports and other activities.


No, the Escondido Republican Women Federated did NOT elect a Republican woman President. They just elected a man, and they are dishonoring every woman in doing so. What is the matter with the group that they would do something this outrageous, this dishonoring to women?!


Mr. Gina Roberts has also asserted his prerogrative to force and bully people to accept his delusion via lawsuits. This is nothing to do with being pro-liberty and pro-rights, when someone relies on the force of government to undermine the laws of nature and the facts of life. Others have informed me that he also believes that men who pretend to be women should be permitted to compete against real women in athletic sports! When pressed to clarify his stance on the issue, he refuses to answer! I asked him directly this question via social media, and he blocked me.





The Escondido Republican Women Federated does not operate as an island until itself. They act as a Republican group, they claim to represent women. 


The club needs to change course and reject the promotion of a man pretending to be a woman as President, or you should lose your charter and all dignity and credibility as a Republican organization.


For the record, I have to respond directly to some of your comments below:


"Please try to put aside your personal bias on this matter." Biology, sex, genetics, and physiology are not "baises". They are facts. They are truth.


"We will never be able to make progress in California if we don't enlarge our tent." Oh brother, where do I start on this one. A tent has to stand for something, cover something, and be grounded in something, or it's just a piece of cloth on the ground that does nothing, and everyone walks all over it. Conservatives do not, cannot win elections by drifting left. Democrats have been shaping the culture for the worse, and then they win elections. Republicans in particular, conservatives in general, and citizens all around need to stand up for what is true and right, or pretty soon there will be no one left standing!


You do not turn independents looking for a viable alternative to the Democrats by becoming Democrats. It's just that simple. You cannot turn enemies into friends but turning friends into enemies, by undermining the foundation principles of the political party and the essential values of any civilization.


Escondido Republican "Women" Federated?



"She is not going to push an LGBT agenda here, she will servce as our President." He-- HE--is already pushing the LGBT agenda. He is a man pretending to be a woman, and the club is going along with this destructive, insulting madness. How ironic that you would write that he will "service" as the president of the club. Don't even get me started on that ...


"Please respect our right to operate under the guidelines in our bylaws." Your bylaws do not trump natural law or biological fact, and they have no right to be. If the Republican Women Federated Groups think that being a woman is so superficial and meaningless, why have women's groups in the first place?! Why even call yourselves Republicans?


At the very least, your organization should have refused HIM entry as a man pretending to be a woman. If the National Federation was actually going to force you to go through with this insanity, then you should have rejected the Federated charter and gone independent, just as the South Bay Republican Women had done in Chula Vista.


By the way, Darlene, I have published your letter below in full for the public to read. You should be getting lots of phone calls and emails shortly.

Co-President of Republican Women's Group: A Man Can Be a Woman, And We Elected a Man President (WAT?!)

Yesterday, I shared a blog post with the public exposing a Republican Women Federated Group in Escondido CA, which just elected a man to be the next President of the club. Here's the link for the blog post.



This man, Gina Roberts, goes around pretending to be a woman. This is absolute madness, but what is really shameful and sad is that this group of women--yes, real women--just sat back and put up with it?!




What is the matter with this group? What are they afraid of, that they could  not take a firm and principled stance that they would not allow a man dressed up in women's clothes to become the President of their women's club?

The Escondido RWF
Where men can be women?!


Well, I just received this response from the co-president of the Escondido Republican Women Federated. Her name is Darlene Hansen.




Consider what you read:

We elected a Republican woman, who has objectively proved by her dedication, hard work & conservative practices that she can do the job.  Our nominating committee recommended her to our Executive committee as stated in our bylaws.  We sunshined it to our membership for 30 days, with no comments.  We asked for nominations from the floor prior to the election, as stated by our bylaws.  When no one stepped forward, we elected her & the rest of the slate of officers.  There were no dissenting votes, or abstaining votes.

You don't know Gina, we do, & if we are OK with it, why should you take exception?  She is an exemplary citizen of our community & our group, exceptionally service oriented.  Please try to put aside your personal bias on this matter.  We will never be able to make progress in California if we don't enlarge our tent.  If I can agree with a person on 80-90% of their ideas, & the remaining issues aren't immoral or illegal there is a good case that the person is acceptable.  She is not going to push an LGBT agenda here, she will servce as our President.

Your demands and stated ideological tenets are your choice, I respect that.  Please respect our right to operate under the guidelines in our bylaws.
                                                                   
----Darlene Hansen, ERFW Co-president 2020

Reminder: This is Gina Roberts, on the left, next to a real woman:



Gina is a man pretending to be a woman. He is not a woman at all. The fact that the co-president of any women's club would gaslight, or brazenly just lie to anyone's face and call this man and woman is just beyond me.

Contact the Escondido Republican Women Federated, and let them know that this nonsense cannot stand. No organization should go along with and enable this madness, this dishonor towards women. Tell them to reject this nominee and stop enabling this delusion.

And tell the California and National federations to intervene and demand that this abuse stop, or demand that the charter be revoked!

LGBT Madness in Escondido: Republican Women's Group Elects Man As Chapter President

 California MassResistance activists contacted me yesterday to share this harrowing, outrageous development in Escondido yesterday.

A man pretending to be a woman was just elected President of a Republican Women's Federated Group.

His name is Gina Roberts:


Yes, it's a man pretending to be a woman, or I suppose one can say that the politically correct title is "transgender woman." This is totally non-existent, of course, and the fact is that no man can become a woman, and no one can become a man, no matter how many surgeries, no matter how many laws are passed.

Here's the post on Facebook:

So another cool thing happened today. I was elected President for 2021 of the Escondido Republican Women Federated, and the team was sworn in by Congressman Darrell Issa

Posted by Gina Roberts on Wednesday, November 18, 2020


This is absolute madness.

Gina Roberts is a man. He is not a she, and yet he has been pushing this lie for a number of years in Republican circles.

He has been a frequent feature of the Log Cabin "Republicans", for example, and he has gone out of his way to normalize his mental illness, the notion that he can become a she just because he has long hair and has something attached to his chest, and that he dresses like a woman.

He has also threatened people who have confronted his delusion and his derision for real women:


Notice also that another man pretending to be a woman was actually arguing with a real woman what defines a woman! How can anyone stand by and tolerate this?

The Los Angeles Times certainly went out of its way to promote Gina Roberts, this man pretending to be a woman, so that they can continue the drive to normalize this nonsense. Click here for the story.

The LGBT infiltration has gotten worse in the California Republican Party in particular, and in the Republican Party across the country. The United States does not need two gay parties. In fact, this country should not even have one LGBT party. These behaviors are aberrent, destructive, immoral, and dysfunctional. President Trump was wrong to promote "Trump Pride", and he was wrong to reach out to individuals who engage in LGBT behaviors as though they are a separate, distinct class of people, like individuals of different ethnic backgrounds or nationalities. This LGBT pandering is all wrong, and it's time for people with some courage and resolve along with common sense to take a stand and say "Enough".

I spoke to one of the former members of the club, and I recently found out this man pretending to be a woman was a member of the Escondido Republican Women Federated since at least four years ago. FOUR YEARS AGO?! What is the matter with these women?! How could they tolerate such dishonor?

Conservatism has to be based on truth, a recognition of truth and error, or right and wrong. In fact, this issue goes far, far beyond politics. This is a matter of culture norms, verities, and realities. We cannot continue.

I reached out to residents in Escondido right away, and I am asking everyone who reads this blog to start raising their voices and demand the following:

1. Escondido Republican Women Federated needs to reject the election of a man as their President. This is a complete violation of everything that a women's group should stand for, and a Republican women's group in particular.

2. Contact the Republican Women Federated Leaders, and tell them that if the Escondido group does not comply and put a woman in charge of a woman's group, that the group should have their charter revoked.

Corrupt Judge Lets Off Black Lives Matter Bigot, Instead Persecuted Victim (But Righteousness Prevails)

May 15, 2019, I was assaulted by a Black Lives Matter militant: Evan "Gay Fake Priest" Bunch.

He ran up on me and struck the smartphone out of my hands, damaging the phone, and then shouting, "If you do that again, I will kick your ass."

Three misdemeanors: assault, vandalism, and making a violent threat.

Unlike most people, I did not accept this abuse lying down. A friend of mine, Jesse Suave, was recording the whole incident. I wanted to make sure that I took every precaution about this matter. I wanted to make sure that there was nothing that I had done which would put me in the wrong. Did I provoke a fight? Did I accost or assault anyone?

I could see in the video that I had not harmed anyone. I went to the police station to file a police report. That evening, the police could not assist me because the Torrance City Council chambers was under lockdown, and the city had to call on other local police departments to assist. The Black Lives Matter bigots had done considerable damager with their rampant upheaval in the city council chambers.

The next day, I provided all the evidence to go after the Gay Fake Priest. The Torrance Police Department worked very quickly on the case, and the speed of their efforts was remarkable according to some of the people working in the department.

According to one of the commissioners, the Torrance Police Department arrested Evan Bunch at a protest in Gardena a few weeks later. That was excellent! 

I guess he had to post bail, and he was forced to go to court a number of times. I believe that there were four pretrial hirings, and each time, I was instructed to be prepared to go to court to testify.

Finally, The second week of November 2019, the trial was set in Inglewood Court House, with Judge Vincent Okamoto presiding. This judge has a singular distinction as the most decorated Japanese-American US Military veteran from the Vietnam War. He would go out of his way to showcase his medals, his degrees of bravery, and there are a number of videos about him on YouTube.

The first day of trial, in which the two sides had to select the jury, the judge asked at the outset: "Is there some way that the two parties can resolve this, because we have thirty-nine people who are waiting outside who are giving up their time for this trial."

I was really surprised to hear this. I mean, I have served on juries before, and it is a sacrifice, but that is nothing compared to the sacrifice that men and women such as himself had offered by fighting for this country. Why would any judge want to pressure me to end the case so quickly?

From there, I should have realized that this judge was not interested in trying the case at all. I had no idea what to think of him. Was he a Democrat? A Republican? Was he interested in tipping his hand to let Black Lives Matter get away with harassing law-abiding citizens? I couldn't read the judge at that time.

When I left the courtroom so that the voir dire could take place, the prosecutor asked the judge if he wanted me to stay. He said, "Oh yes, I want him to stay for the whole thing," with a slight, creepy yet frustrated smile.

Just to inform everyone, earlier in the whole case, the defendant had offered an insult of a consequence: he would pay for the damage done to my smartphone, and he would get a dismissal. That is not justice. This perverted, abusive BLM bigot wanted to intimidate me, and he needed some deterence. He had engaged in similar disruptions and abusive behavior before. He was even found guilty for disrupting an event in Los Angeles a four years prior. He basically got a slap on the wrist that one time.

That was not right. That was not fair. 

The Torrance city attorney assigned to the case informed me that this was an airtight case. The best that the public defender was going to do, I reasoned on my own, was to try to play the race card. She was hoping to make me look bad, to make me unpleasant or unsympathetic before the jury, so that they would nullify the law and let the BLM creepy get away with the crime.

The first day of testimony, I was called to the stand. The prosecutor asked me basic questions, including the fact that she asked me to identify the phone that had been damaged, to identity the man in court who had assaulted me. I pointed to the Fake Priest. This time around, he was nice and quiet, not acting up. He was dressed up with a university logo on his jacket, all to give the false impression that he was an upstanding fellow--which he is not. At one point during my testimony, I brought out my smartphone, the one that the Fake Priest had damaged, to show the evidence of the phone had been repaired. Judge Okamoto then said to me, "Go ahead and put the phone away," which I did.

The round of questions from the public defender was pretty much as expected. She knew that she could not get her client off based on the facts. From the video that Jesse had recorded earlier last year, the Fake Priest clearly attacked me on camera. In no wise was on attacking anyone. In fact, he lied flat out when he claimed that I was harassing one of the ladies outside of Torrance City Hall on May 14, 2019, which was clearly not the case since I was walking away from her, and I did not even touch her.

She asked me the following questions, and there were the answers that I gave:

"You call him a fake priest. Did you know that he graduated from Vanderbilt University?"

"No, I did not."

I then added that I called him a fake priest because he did not act like a priest. The public defender foolishly asked: "Why do you say that? How should a priest behave?"

I then launched into a repeated litany of all the things that he done at the city council meeting, and what he had done to me: "A priest does not curse and swear at people. A priest does not threaten others, get in their faces, intimidate others. A priest does not damage other people's property and make violent threats against them."

She was caught way off guard that time. She just stood there and looked at me for about ten seconds, trying to catch her breath, I suppose. She really walked into a trap with that question.

At one point, she tried to bring in my political views, so she asked a snide question: "Do you oppose immigration?" as though I am hostile to people from other countries. I knew what she was trying to do, and I was ready to speak the truth without wavering.

"No"

"You oppose illegal immigration?" she asked a second time, as though she thought she had caught me in some strange fashion.

"Yes."

Apparently, she was hoping to rile up the jury to be unhappy with me. After all, the trial was taking place in very liberal, very Democratic Inglewood, CA, and this public defender was looking for every angle possible to get some kind of nullification for her client.

At another point, she asked, "Do you write blogs?" I told her that I do.

She then asked me about a blog with the title that read "BLDM". I knew what she was talking about. It was the post that I had written exposing the Black Lives Matter bigots as a bunch of frauds who do not care about black lives at all. I told her BLDM stood for "Black Lives Don't Matter".

She thought she had me. "Oh, this will prove that he is racist!" she was probably thinking to herself.

In the next question, I made the point loudly and clearly to the court that I called their group "Black Lives Don't Matter" because their actions, their words show that they do not care about black lives. I then shared with the court that on the night when the Fake Priest assaulted me, I was wearing a shirt of a black life, DeAndre Mitchell, who was killed in a building fire trying to save four other lives. I then added that the Fake Priest called DeAndre Mitchell "white supremacy."

That cleared up that attempted fraud pushed by the terrible public defender. 

From what I could tell after the first day of testimony, it was pretty clear that this Gay Fake Priest was not going to get away with anything, provided that the jury was honest and integrated enough to look past the racism and the politicking from the public defender.

Then came the next day in court.

I was told to wait in the lobby outside of the courtroom, while the prosecutor and the public defender went into the courtroom first and spoke to the judge. Then I was called into the courtroom, and I took the stand. Out of nowhere, the judge asked me:

"Yesterday, was your phone on in the courtroom? Yes or no?"

I was surprised, shocked. I did not understand what was going on. He pressed me a second time:

"Was your phone on? Yes or no?!"

I told him that I had not turned it completely off, but I had turned off the ringer, and I did not take photos or record video with the phone. That is the state law.

The judge did not care.

"I have two signs on the front door of this courtroom, which indicate that everyone has to turn their phone off."

That sign appears in many courtrooms, and I have always understood that that means that the ringer has to be turned off. It is not the statute per California law that a person's smartphone must be turned off completely.

"I would not to see my photo captured by the witness' phone and shared with the public while I am in presiding in court. I know that the prosecution is going to protest my decision, but I must do this ..."

And then, in a complete corruption of justice, a very unjust act, Judge Vincent "O-Corrupto" Okamoto looked at the Fake Priest and declared:

"Cased dismissed!"

He then looked me, and said: "I want you here with your lawyer for a contempt of court hearing. You can face up to five days in jail and pay a $1000 fine!"

I could not believe this was happening. I was the victim of a crime, and this corrupt judge was turning the tables to make me the criminal and let off the Black Lives Matter bigot. This is justice in Los Angeles County?

"Bailiff, take away the witness' smartphone. You can get your phone back at the end of the day.  Now, leave my courtroom!"

At that point, I noticed that there was a number of sheriff's deputies in the courtroom. What was this? Some kind of show of force to intimidate me, as well?

I left the courtroom without saying a word, but I was clearly distraught afterwards. I could not believe this was happening! This is ridiculous! Where's the justice here?

A friend of mine showed up about fifteen minutes later. He had wanted to see the court hearing and be there to support me. I told him everything that happened, how the case was just dismissed on a pretext, and how I was being held in contempt of court. 

Judge Vincent Okamoto, Who Corrupted Justice


He was shocked and outraged. Sadly, I would later learn from him that this kind of incompetence, corruption, and dysfunction is all too common in LA County courts. Judges look for all kinds of excuses to dismiss cases, for example. There really isn't justice in Los Angeles County for many victims. I was saddened to hear about a similar ordeal he had gone through, dealing with repeat burglars who had been doing all kinds of damage in his neighborhood in South Torrance. The case fell apart in court when it was revealed that two of the investigators working on the case had tried to plant evidence! Oh brother, what a shame.

Anyway, there I was in Inglewood Court House, and boy did I start praying. "How could this happen, Lord? I am a victim of a crime, and now the criminal justice system is protecting the criminal and victimizing me."

It was really shocking. But I started to pray in the Spirit a great deal at that point, and I knew that all was going to work out. The sheriff's deputy gave me back my phone earlier than he was supposed to. Most bailiffs, I imagine, see the kind of crappy, corrupt injustice that judges engage in, and they try to mitigate the effects as much as possible.

David Llewellyn (left) and me


Within an hour, I told my boss Brian Camenker what happened to me. He suggested that I reach out to David Llewellyn, a free speech attorney and appellete lawyer who has been a big supporter of MassResistance. He had also assisted me privately while I was facing the legal challenges in Downey Court House. He stepped in right away when I emailed him what happened. He asked me for names, course case docket numbers, and was able to get on the phone and start making calls right away.

This guy was great! And criminal law was not even in his main field of expertise!

He told me that he would prepare all the legal briefs. All I had to do was show up and just sit there. He would do all the talking. Did I mention that he was taking care of me pro bono? An appellate attorney can charge between $10,000 to $17,500. His cost was much higher, since he dealt with federal issues: $25,000.

But he was representing me for free! Thank you, Jesus! 

I may have been wronged in this matter, but I had to trust that "All things work together for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)

I showed up to the "contempt" hearing on December 2nd, 2019. My attorney showed up to the courtroom before I did. I was so impressed with how prompt he was. He had provided a great legal brief, in which he explicitly outlined that the judge had NO RIGHT to hold me in contempt for not turning my smartphone off.

Surprise surprise, that day Judge O-Corrupto did not even show up! It's almost as though he knew that he had no case, and he had no right to do what he had done to me. If anyone wants to see how dsyfunctional the court system has become in Los Angeles County, they should have been there in Inglewood. No one took the bench to look over any of the hearings, cases, or motions. One judge finally did enter the coutroom at about 10:30am (Two hours after everyone is ordered to appear). It was unpreceedented, because the judge actually walked through the front door of the courtroom to the bench. I have never seen that happen. That's how haphazard and dysfunctionally everything was that day. Never had I expected to see a judge not show up to his own courtroom, for starters.

And now this?

That judge explained to my lawyer and to me that since it was a contempt hearing, he could not adjudicate it. It had to be taken care of by Vincent O-Corrupto himself. Therefore, the hearing was continued to January 13. 2020.

So be it.

Another month went by. It was a trying time for me internally. I was trying to understand why so much injustice had been happening to me. First, I was hung from a tree (figuratively) just for sitting in a city council meeting in Huntington Park, CA. And now, when I was clearly a victim, I was being victimized again!



My good friend Keith Hardine and I talked a great deal about this. It was really tough for my flesh, for my senses. I admit now looking back  on the whole ordeal one year later. I had to learn that walking by faith is exactly that: we have to look at the truth and goodness of God and His Word, not out trying times, or the persecuting circumstances.

Come January 13, 2020, I showed up at the Inglewood Court House, and I was ready for just about anything. Of course, in the back of my mind, I realized that even if the court wanted to impose the entire penalty on me, there was no way that I was going to go to jail. There is no room for the inmates who have been sentenced for more serious issues, to begin with. People are being let out early from the LA County jails on a regular basis, and from what I understand, there are fewer and fewer resources for the sheriff's department to begin with. You can't staff a jail without sheriff's deputies! I heard another elected officials, in Orange County, share with me that his wife is a judge. Every day in court, she has to remain fully aware that there are not enough beds in those county jails. She simply cannot remand into custody anyone who comes into court with a violation, or who gets sentenced for a small-time wrongdoing. It's an absolute mess in jails all over California!

There apparently was a file for me in regards to the contempt hearing. However, there was nothing in it!

My attorney prepared another incredible legal brief, this time seeking a motion to dismiss. "The judge has to file a minute order relating to the contempt charge. He did not do that on the day he ordered you to come back to court on December 2, last year. The law states that he has 50 days to follow through on a contempt charge." January 13, 2020 was Day 54! Deadline had passed.

Of course, judges have become so lawless in so many places, that they do whatever they want, and even ignore the law sometimes. My attorney told me that we had to rested and ready for just about anything. Once again, the corrupt, bereft of dignity judge Vincent O-Corrupto did not show up. I kind of figured that that was going to happen. Shame on him. He didn't have the courage to look me in the eye for putting me in contempt while allowing an abject criminal get away with his wrongdoing.

The court clerk was very helpful with my attorney that morning, too. She even made sure that my case would be heard first, since this whole business was much ado about nothing, anyway. When the judge came out of his chamber (another pro tem, since cowardly O-Corrupto refused to show up), he had nothing but good news: "Couselor, I have read over your motion, and I agree completely. Case dismissed!"

Amen!

Final Reflection, and Righteousness Prevails

The first verse that I need to share as I wrap up and comment on this whole ordeal:

1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." (Romans 5:1-5)

For a long time, whether I believed it or not, whether I was aware of it or not, I often judged that God loved me or cared for me based on what I was feeling, what I was thinking, or what I was going through. I dod not have the right respect towards Him, in that He was always on the job caring for me, loving for me, looking out for me, regardless of the events and circumstances around me.

For so many years, I had been taught that we must never judge our standing by our performance or our circumstances. Yes, we have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21), but when it came to resting in this promise in the face of such unprecedented persecution, I was not living up to the mark. I was still judging my standing by my circumstances.

That has been changing more and more over the past year, I am glad to share. Today, I have never had a more real and relevant revelation of Jesus Christ and His love for me. I know that He is for me, and even when actions, circumstances, and people are against me. it does not matter:

"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)

Because of the hardships, and the calm endurance that followed, God started developing some real character in me. I stopped going so much with my thoughts and feelings. I started realizing that I did not have to work so hard on the inside to know that God is working both on the inside and the outside on my behalf. Amen!

And there's more.

My attorney, David Llewellyn, told me plainly after the dismissal: "Judge Okamoto had no right, no authority to dismiss the case. He should have held a contempt hearing for you after the trial was over. I am going to file a complaint with the California Commission on Judicial Performance."

BAM!

I did not expect much to happen, though, but at least someone was advocating for me, and for what is right. The judicial commission did receive the complaint, and informed my attorney that they were looking over the complaint. I had help off writing this report because my attorney wanted the judicial commission to issue an impartial ruling without any news of the corrupt judge's behavior getting out to the greater public.

Judge O-Corrupto Dies

Sometimes, justice comes in different ways. I was hoping to see some kind of sanction on the corrupt judge who had allowed the Black Lives Matter bigot get away with assaulting me. From the outset, it sure seemed that he was more interested in letting that hateful activist get away with his crimes.



But then I heard the news ... Vincent Okamoto passed away.

This may sound cruel, but judges who corrupt justice pay a price, and he deserved to die. He violated the laws of nature and nature's God. He corrupted justice. He let bad men get away with their bad deeds, when government is supposed to serve as a terror to evil works and reward good. He persecuted an innocent man, a victim, and wanted to make him a criminal:

"He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD." (Proverbs 17:15)

It may seem particularly cruel to slam a veteran, as well, but you know what? Being a veteran is not a get-out-of-jail free card. He had no right to corrupt justice the way that the did. Shame on Vincent Okamoto.

And now he's dead, so that he will not corrupt justice ever again. There is a price to pay when people dishonor me:

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." (Isaiah 54:17)

Since then, I have learned and have seen God restore to me so much more that I have lost. The hateful Black Lives Matter bigots have not gotten anything that they wanted from the City of Torrance. Bad people are getting held accountable for their bad deeds. Righteousness is prevailing, and I continue to reign in His life, regardless of what bad men on this earth try to do to me.
