A big congrats to John in Minnesota for confronting the Scott county board of commissioners last week on 4 March 2014. John asked them for evidence proving the constitution and laws of the “state” applied to him just because he is physically in Minnesota. They offer nothing.
However, Pat Ciliberto, the county attorney, did offer his opinion and that of the psychopath Rex Stacy I reported on earlier. All Pat could offer was Stacy’s opinion the constitution and laws applied to John. No facts, no evidence, nothing that would prove the constitution and laws applied. Facts? Pat answered John’s evidentiary question by essentially saying the facts are because Rex Stacy said so.
We’re not surprised, we expect it. What Pat also did was claim the questions had to be in writing. Pat has no intention of answering, I’ve asked him and his office numerous times and they have never provided anything. This is the last fax I sent Pat. It’s pretty straightforward, you’d think the attorney of the year would answer it. Here is the bulk of the letter, please feel to use it as a template:
Greetings Mr. Ciliberto:
I’m asking you as a journalist about evidence you are supposed to have proving the constitution and laws of the “state” apply to someone such as John Myser just because he’s physically in Minnesota.
I saw the video of your appearance at the commissioners’ meeting. Instead of answering John’s question, you merely restated another lawyer’s opinion that the law applied. Why restate an opinion when John asked you for facts? Why didn’t you just answer the question responsively? Is your position the same as Jeannie Anderson, that you’re not required to have evidence?
Also, as I have never received an answer from you or anyone in your office, please provide me with the facts proving the constitution and laws of the “state” apply to everyone physically in Minnesota. [No one at the county level I have communicated with, including every member of the commission, has been able to provide any facts the laws apply.]
I’m not looking for political platitudes, logical fallacies, nor arguments and legal citations; just the facts/evidence proving “the laws of the State apply to everyone [physically] in Minnesota.”
I have also contacted the Minnesota governor, attorney general and the tax committee of the Minnesota legislative house. None of them will return a call. None of them have been able to provide any evidence their laws apply to people just because we are physically in Minnesota.
I’ll continue asking them and trying to set up interviews with these people. But if you think you have what these politicians can’t provide, call into the No State Project and present the evidence.
