I confronted the Tempe city council the first time on 4 April 2013. I asked if there was evidence to prove their laws applied to me and there was jurisdiction. Predictably, they could not offer anything, all they did was say I was able to speak to the city attorney, Judith Baumann about it.
Well, as reported last week on the No State Project, Ms. Baumann blew off the 10 April 2013 meeting and didn’t try to reschedule. I spoke with someone in her office and it was set for 17 April 2013. Ms. Baumann refused to do it on the phone and objected to being recorded. As usual, Ms. Baumann was evasive and refused to answer the question and ended the meeting early.
The next night, 18 April 2013, I spoke with the council again, but this time I got video. Anyone who has followed this show knows there’s no evidence the constitution and laws apply to anyone, so you won’t be surprised when you watch the video. I let them know their attorney refused to answer the question, and I asked them again what evidence they had to prove their laws applied to me.
Kolby, who is a lawyer, keeps confusing a question asking for facts with wanting a legal opinion and essentially states the city council is not qualified to determine if their laws apply to anyone. He states: “The proof is we said we have jurisdiction.” He then claims that once they say they have jurisdiction, then I have the burden of proving they don’t. Logic dictates otherwise.
So, as Kolby agreed, their laws apply because they said so. No actual evidence, it’s just because they say so and have hundreds of armed men/women to carry out their will.
I hope everyone can see the significance of what takes place in this video. This is not an isolated incident, it’s only the first time I’ve gotten it on video, but it won’t be the last. A city council and their attorney cannot prove their laws apply and they don’t care. I have submitted the question to the entire staff of prosecutors in the Tempe office and I’m waiting to hear back from the police chief and a meeting to ask him about the evidence.
So when the council, the prosecutor and the police all have no evidence the laws apply, then one of many serious questions raised is: Where are the Tempe city judges getting the evidence proving they have jurisdiction? We already know it’s not coming from the police and prosecutors. As I’ve told the Tempe city council, their judges are assuming it for the cops and prosecutors. That looks like collusion to me; it’s evidence proving the judges are not fair, impartial and independent as advertised.
It’s no surprise that the Tempe city council, allegedly unqualified to make legal determinations, dismissed my complaint about Tempe city judges taking jurisdiction where no evidence was ever submitted to prove it existed. After all, why stop the steady flow of millions of dollars forcibly taken from an unwilling community?
Those interested in the truth, acting in good faith, when unable to prove they have jurisdiction will show some concern and want to at least investigate the matter. Not the Tempe city council. They don’t seem to care at all. Except for a non-responsive email from Kolby, no one on the council has responded to my emails requesting evidence their laws apply. Not one member has expressed any concern over the fact they cannot prove the laws they create actually apply to anyone. No one expressed concern or disagreement with Kolby’s: “The proof is we said we have jurisdiction.”
The next council meeting is 9 May 2013 @ 8:00pm. I’ll be there and if you are in the area, you should not only attend, but get on the docket so you can ask the council yourself.
