What a putz! Does this boob even know that Gabby is an EX member of Congress or, that any citizen can go to "her towns". Now we know why Congress is dysfunctional.
If gun nuts are going to be strict constructionist regarding the Constitutional right to bear arms, then they are only entitled to a breech filled musket and nothing invented since the 17th Century. The only gun available when the Constitution was adopted were single shot muskets. If the Constitution is so sacrosanct and unchanging then so should be the "arms" covered by the 2nd Amendment.
I can only hope that Tom Horne and his ilk are among next years batch of gun deaths. I would rather home school my child than arm teachers, or to turn public schools into armed fortresses and compounds with armed guards. That doesn't seem conducive to learning.
It is not a theory that a former member of the State Judiciary was railroad into criminal court on overblown charges in order to extort him out of his first amendment right to demand a redress of grievance from State prosecutors and enforcement authority, without fear of retribution.
Nor, is it a theory that I was convicted on three felonies and faced down twenty years in prison to guard that right. It is also not a theory but, is a sorry fact that Arizona press corps has intentionally stonewalled the story from the people. Neither is it theory that not one member of the Arizona press corps was brave enough to cover my trial or, to report on the refusal of the trial judge to join the State and the mainstream media in their effort to railroad me into silence.
Here is some more interesting history base on verifiable facts: the trial court gave me a lawyer to appeal the verdict and its non sentence of 1 year unsupervised probation and no fine. Of course, my ten year battle with the BIA DoG police enforcers has left me destitute so the Judge also award me the court transcripts necessary to appeal it generous non sentence, along with the jury’s verdict of guilty on all counts.
In a blatant effort to extort me out of my First Amendment right to petition the for a redress of grievances; the BIA gambling cartel's police agents convinced the Attorney General after five years of rejection, to join them in railroading me into criminal court on overblown charges to silence my claims and allegations against them and their illicit gambling compact. They literally asked the court to join them in the effort.
Fortunately, for me the Court declined rather directly. The Court’s comment during sentencing that most sticks out in my mind was his response to the state request was “I would never do that, it took courage to do what he (yours truly) did.”
It certainly is also a fact that the entire press corps ignored these events while, they continue to suckle the BIA gambling cartel’s teat, which is gorged full from the tainted fruits of its immoral banished rigged slot machines. It is not theory that the BIA gambling syndicate, in order to exist victimizes the State 24 and seven, without direct oversight or paying income tax revenues. For this to occur public officers must disregard their oath to uphold state statutory laws they have sworn under oath to uphold.
Here is something that is also not a theory, it is simply the law universally:
Regardless of whether an individual holds public office or not, it is still a crime under Arizona law to plot, plan, or devise a strategy or ploy, with the intent to skirt the laws of the State.
Of course, this is exactly what the BIA bureau-rats, along with their cronies from the rigged slot machine cartel, and minions among the Arizona's weak governing body. It has been going on for the past three decades. Ask yourself: When was the last time anyone in America ever heard of a Judge being convicted of conspiracy and racketeering and it is not deemed to be newsworthy by the swarms of media whores that permeate out lives?
HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL FOR A FREE PRESS Phoenix New Times take another look see.
The good news for the future is that the Phoenix New Times is apparently going to take another shot at covering my story. Hopefully, this story will be less biased in favor of the BIA gambling cartel than the effort a few years ago. Apparently, the NT is under new management. As I understand it the employees now own the paper. I was recently interviewed by feature writer Ray Stern. Hopefully, we can expect a less slanted article post trial, than we received pretrial.

It is not a conspiracy ithat I am a former member of the State Judiciary and am proud to have challenged the State gamblng cartel and been convicted of three high felonies. It is not a conspiracy that not one member of the Arizona press corps was brave enough to cover the story. When was the last time you heard of a Judge being convicted of conspiracy and racketeering and it is not deemed to be newsworthy by the swarms of media whores?
The good news is that the Phoenix New Times is apparently going to take a shot at covering my ordeal. Apparently, they are under new management. As I understand it the employees now own the paper. I was interviewed by feature writer Ray Stern recently and we can expect the article this week or next. For my perspective, and I am by no means a journalist link to www.convictatlarge.me
Wow! It takes a fair amount of gall to chastise others for suppressing important news stories. Especially when your own organization is guilty of conspiring with the State to help railroad a former Judge into silence. I have begged your organization to report on my trial and conviction for conspiracy and racketeering but, you continue to ignore my ordeal.
I faced down 20 years in prison and you slugs joined with all other media outlets in refusing to report on the trial, my defenses and allegations of criminal acts by the State. However, worse yet is your suppressing the fact that the trial judge was so appalled by the State's effort to railroad me into silence that it refused to impose any punishment for my conviction on three felonies for conspiracy and racketeering.
While, I am not a journalist and have never aspired to be one, if anyone at your hypocritical organization would care to read the story link to www.convictatlarge.me or you can wait for the release of our documentary on the Arizona Poker War and teasers coming soon to YouTube.

Republicans are such hypocrites--- they will battle the feds over any issue. Except to protect the rights of sick people who want access to a goddamn non-toxic vegetable that relieves their pain and makes their life bearable. STATES RIGHT MY ASS. They are all political whores and insensitive slugs.

Sure Brian, as if the treatment of my former associates from Tucson's Club Royale by gamblng industry thugs is not relevant to the issues in my trial. Are you maintaining that the bogus lawsuit filed by the Pascua Yaqui Card Room operators will not be an issue either?
I am willing to wager that if I am acquitted, it will be due in no small part, to the actions of those industry goons that terrified Johnny Ray's young children. They lobbed a stun gernade into his 12 year old son's bathroom. They stuck a 9MM gun in the boy's face. Later, when the kid asked his assailants what might have happened if he had been killed? The schmuck replied that "...stuff" like that just happens."
Sadly, Johnny Ray was not even the licensee of the Arizona Card Room, that would have been his estranged wife Donna. The police had no business bombing his house on a Saturday morning at seven in the morning.
I did not know that you were freelancing. However, it is hard to believe that with your networking skills, you have no Phoenix press associates with whom you could collaborate. Surely, you would agree; that a former JP facing three felony counts and representing himself in pro per is somewhat newsworthy? Yet, it is not being covered anywhere within the State. What would you suggest is responsible for this odd circumstance?
Come on Brian, this is a statewide story and you know it. The reality is that the entire press corps is being compromised by the gambling industry's big bucks. You are not responsible for this sorry situtation. So why are you defending it? The jury has the case and deliberations begin at 9:30 this morning.
