February 14, 2020

“Let me say this clearly. We are not an agency that is about censorship. It is not what we do, it is wrong, it is not who we are.” —L’Oreal Stepney (2011) That’s how the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s deputy director of the Office of Water responded to allegations by scientists that their conclusions […]

Michael Honeycutt, Hack Ph.D., Grooms Chronic Liar to Give Expert Witness Testimony as TCEQ Rep; Both Named to Trump EPA

January 9, 2020

12

“Almost every time there’s a public concern about pollution, [Michael Honeycutt] says there’s nothing to worry about. Almost every time industry takes a position against stronger health protections, he takes their side and contorts the science to advocate for doing nothing. He just doesn’t have any credibility anymore.” —Luke Metzger, director of Environment Texas The […]

“He’d disregarded a fundamental principle of [the Soviet Union’s] work: the presumption of guilt.”  “Greater Good the Greater Good the Greater Good[!]” “A single man didn’t dent the meaningfulness of their operations. The principles of their work remained sound. The protection of a nation was bigger than one person, bigger than a thousand people. […] […]

Emails by PCA Pastors Kevin Hale, Daren Dietmeier, and Jeremy Cheezum Used to Support Lies, Lawbreaking, and Abuse

September 22, 2019

2

Emails authored by pastors Kevin Hale and Daren Dietmeier of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and displayed in this post were submitted in evidence to the Arizona Superior Court in 2013 to procure what has since been recognized as an illegal speech injunction—the intention of which was to conceal false testimony to the court […]

Jeremy Cheezum Is Unworthy of Dads of Great Students

August 29, 2019

A Presbyterian minister referenced in the last post, Jeremy Cheezum, has urged the institution of a parent-child scholastic program called Watch D.O.G.S. (“Watch Dads of Great Students”) at Pomona Elementary School in Montrose, Colorado, which his children attend. One of the program’s stated aims is to heighten the safety of kids by encouraging the presence […]

Is the Policy of Arizona’s Courts under Chief Justice Scott Bales Taught at UCLA as an Example of State Judges’ Contempt for the Constitution (and Bad Practice Generally)?

May 21, 2019

The author of this post recently chipped off a bit more of his dilapidated front teeth on the brim of the coffee mug that’s virtually wedded to his hands. After years of demoralization in the courts, he depends on external energy sources to triumph over inertia and earn a living. The occasion of the damage […]

Terse Reviews of Arizona Judges I’ve Been Disappointed with So Far (with Critiques of a Couple of Arizona Attorneys and a Police Task Force Tacked On)

May 2, 2019

0

What follow are brief reviews of judges the writer had during 12 years of prosecutions (2006–2018) prompted by a vindictive liar (see this post’s third endnote), her husband, and a cohort of theirs. All allegations introduced against the writer during the previous decade by the three—and some that reach back over a dozen years—were discredited […]

“An Asshole”: A Review of Jeffrey Marks, Tucson Attorney at Law (Who’s Disliked Even by His Heart Doctor)

July 26, 2018

0

In 2013, I told a cardiologist I knew, Lee Goldberg, M.D., that I was in court with some monsters and that they were represented by a degenerate attorney. Goldberg, who had a business relationship with my father at the time, guessed the attorney was probably one of his patients. Sure enough he said he’d seen Jeffrey […]

“I am ashamed to think how easily we capitulate to badges and names, to large societies and dead institutions. […] I ought to go upright and vital, and speak the rude truth in all ways.” —Emerson I thought about using, “F*ck the Court,” in the title to this post to spare the sensibilities of the […]

Last of the 2016 Prosecutions Brought by Psych Patient Tiffany Hargis Bredfeldt & Co. against the Author of this Site Terminates: ILLEGAL SPEECH INJUNCTION COERCED FROM DISGRACED JUDGE IN 2013 IS GUTTED

Tiffany Bredfeldt, a toxicologist employed by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the EPA who testified before the Arizona Superior Court in 2013 that she was in psychiatric care, has accused the writer to, in her own words, “the Court multiple times [and] to multiple police departments, detectives, federal agencies, and other officials […]

Letter to the Editor Notes How Claims of “Abuse” Are Used to Exert Control

June 3, 2018

Some recent critical scrutiny by the author of this blog was inspired by a restraining order petitioned by Warrenton, Virginia Vice Mayor Sunny Reynolds against a constituent and political rival of hers. Since the March prosecution, Ms. Reynolds has been voted out of office (reportedly by a margin of 2 to 1) and replaced by […]

Singer-Songwriter Kat McSnatch Knows How You Feel (“Can She Say That? Can I?”)

April 12, 2018

The angry speech of people who’ve been falsely accused in one or another legal procedure and labeled freakish, scary, or violent is often highlighted to imply that because they use “bad words,” they must be bad people whose claims of injustice aren’t worthy of consideration. Such people have been wrongly deprived of some or all of the […]

Previously Paddled Attorney Chris Scileppi Tells an Arizona Superior Court Judge That This Blog’s Author Has “Terrorized” and “Demonized” His Clients with Computer Code—and Isn’t Jeered out of the Room

March 27, 2018

2

What this post relates is typical of prosecutorial conduct in restraining order cases, besides generally. The imperative, which is both profligate and malicious, is simply to win. Neither merit nor justice has anything to do with it. The post revisits a 2016 hearing whose object was to have the writer jailed. To remind those who […]

BABY ON BOARD: Restraining Order by Virginia Vice Mayor Sunny Reynolds Kneecaps Town Council Election Rival Who “Pointed His Finger at Her”; Letter to the Editor Criticizes Conduct

March 11, 2018

1

The administration of restraining orders is a frequent target of censure by First Amendment scholar and UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh in his blog, The Volokh Conspiracy. That’s because restraining orders may be exploited, besides as gag orders generally, as SLAPPs to suppress political speech, which the First Amendment is there to protect above all […]

Texas Officials Michael Honeycutt and Tiffany Bredfeldt Allege Sexual Solicitation in Contradictory Testimony to the Arizona Superior Court, Implicating a Tucson Man Who’s Been Falsely Accused for 11 Years: ILLEGAL GAG ORDER GUTTED; “WOMEN’S LAW,” TCEQ DISCREDITED

This post, published on the first day of the year, was updated on July 9, 2018 (reflected in the new title), and content that had been unlawfully censored by the court has been restored. A recent respondent to this blog commented, “I think these injunctions violate the Constitution.” Despite the baggy parameters dictated by the […]

If You’re Determined to Write about an Unjust Restraining Order (or Other Procedural Violation), There’s No Point in NOT Naming Names

September 16, 2016

2

The title of this post requires qualification. There is a reason not to name names in critical speech, especially speech that’s published: It’s safer, because you’re less likely to provoke the subject’s wrath. The catch is that if you write so innocuously (i.e., so generally and anonymously) that the subject doesn’t care, then your speech will […]

NoEthics.Net Holds Judges and Lawyers Accountable to the Laws They Ply

September 5, 2016

0

David Palmer’s website NoEthics.net provides a service that may not be its author’s first priority but is certainly a valuable one: It puts the shoe on the other foot. Mr. Palmer outs officers of the court who’ve been publicly censured for misconduct—and more than a few of them have felt the pinch. Here’s how one […]

Everyone angered by procedural abuse has a different grievance: false allegations of domestic violence, civil rights violations, wrongful claims of child abuse, exploitation of process to silence critics, and even lying about rape, to name a few. Typically, it’s what sort of procedural abuse a person has experienced—or someone close to that person has experienced—that […]

The Female of the Species Is More Deadly than the Male: A Restraining Order Plot Twist That Fans of Novelist Gillian Flynn Will Appreciate

The previous post concerned the interpersonal and legal travails of a blogger who brought her story to my attention last week. Jenny has twice been served (this month) with restraining orders alleging “domestic violence” that were petitioned by an ex-boyfriend with whose son she had formed a parental attachment. The “man” resents her talking about […]

The Use of Restraining Orders to Bully Women: Jenny’s Story

A woman named Jenny brought her blog to my attention yesterday. Jenny reports she was falsely accused of domestic violence for no better motive than to hurt her, and she prevailed in court. I broke down during my turn to defend myself, but I couldn’t help it. My heart hurt so badly. I was in […]

A Man’s “Tasty Little Balls…What a Treat!”: On RAINES v. ARISTEO, Free Speech, and Censorship

May 16, 2016

5

Typical of cases stemming from court injunctions, the case that occasions this post, Raines v. Aristeo, is a he-said/she-said quagmire. Not disputed is that the woman and the man had a four-month relationship in 2010. He says he ended the relationship after learning “disturbing…information” from her ex-husband about her. She says she ended the relationship because […]
