Is there Treason in our Courts?

by John Rasmussen

Please read a disclaimer for the statements I make on this website accusing judges, politicians and activists of criminal actions.



Treason:

     Treason is an inflammatory word, and is probably overused in our society. But, treason is the word that best describes what is happening in the courts of the federal Ninth Circuit and the courts of Washington State. When judges participate in crimes from the bench, and intentionally destroy the rights of parties who appear before them, there is no longer a rule of law in our society. Instead, there is simply anarchy dressed up in black robes. When judges choose anarchy over the Constitution and the law, it is only a matter of time until the public adopts the same methods. If not stopped, the anarchy in our courts will spread and destroy our society. For that reason, I believe judges who choose to misuse their power, who choose anarchy over the law, are committing treason. (My statements describing wrongdoing or criminal actions on this webpage are a First Amendment expression of my opinion.)

I Speak from Experience.

     I came to this conclusion the hard way. I saw dishonesty at every level, from Federal District Court to the United States Supreme Court, in my four year struggle for the recognition of my rights in the courts. In early 2000, I blew the whistle on a federal tax fraud scheme used to railbank a BNSF right-of-way in King County, Washington. When evidence of the crime was presented in court, Federal District Judge Barbara Jacobs Rothstein struck all the evidence, and refused to refer the crime to federal prosecutors. She then issued a decision that hid the tax fraud scheme, protecting its participants. In doing this, she denied my constitutional right to establish the facts in her court. Rothstein became a participant in the federal tax fraud scheme with these actions from the bench.
    (My statements describing wrongdoing or criminal actions on this webpage are a First Amendment expression of my opinion.)

     When Rothstein's dishonesty was appealed, the three judge Ninth Circuit appeals panel rubber stamped her opinion, and again denied my right to establish the facts of the case. The full Ninth Circuit Court refused to reestablish my constitutional rights in its denial of en banc consideration. Every judge in the United States Court of appeals for the Ninth Circuit refused to allow me to correct the contrived facts that Rothstein manufactured to justify her predetermined outcome to my lawsuit. The Ninth Circuit denied my constitutional right of due process. This wasn't a mistake, it was very intentional.
    (My statements describing wrongdoing or criminal actions on this webpage are a First Amendment expression of my opinion.)

     I was then denied appeal to the United States Supreme Court. Appeals from the Ninth Circuit are the most overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, yet the Supreme Court does nothing to protect Americans from this rogue and dishonest court. By taking only a small fraction of the cases appealed, and refusing to deal with the root cause, the Supreme Court establishes a "right" for Ninth Circuit judges to abandon the law and the Constitution. Our system of government insulates the judiciary from the political process. Our judges have used this insulation to grab power that was never granted to them. They do this by abandoning their oaths, abandoning their commitment to the Constitution and the law, and instead freely committing crimes from the bench. This is exactly the judicial misconduct that I describe on this website. Since we-the-people have little power to hold the judiciary responsible, we must depend on the judiciary is to police itself. For this to happen, it must start at the top with the United States Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court has failed to assume this responsibility.
    (My statements describing wrongdoing or criminal actions on this webpage are a First Amendment expression of my opinion.)

     In early 2004, I entered a complaint of judicial misconduct to the Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit. She dishonestly dismissed it by stating that the issues that I brought with my complaint had already been resolved. Not true.
    (My statements describing wrongdoing or criminal actions on this webpage are a First Amendment expression of my opinion.)

     A sister case, bringing exactly the same property right issue, went through the Washington State courts. The Chief Judge of the Washington State Court of Appeals, Division One, used the dishonest Rothstein decision as precedent. He knew how dishonest that decision was. The Washington State Supreme Court denied appeal. I believe the most dishonest decisions by courts of appeal are the cowardly refusal to consider blatantly dishonest lower court decisions. That is what the Washington State Supreme Court did with Ray v. King County.

Federal Judges have Formed the Strongest Labor Union in History.

     After the four year struggle for my rights in the courts, it is obvious to me that the most important priority for a judge is to protect his/her fellow judges. This includes covering up criminal activity by her/his fellow judges. This works well for judges because they can then count on their fellow judges to return the favor. Unfortunately, this doesn't work out so well for we-the-people because we lose our rights and our judicial process by these actions.
    (My statements describing wrongdoing or criminal actions on this webpage are a First Amendment expression of my opinion.)

     This loyal support system by federal judges operates like an old fashioned labor union, perhaps the strongest and most powerful labor union in history. Much of the public dislikes labor unions because they harm their company and irrationally support their weakest members. This is exactly what the Ninth Circuit judges have done with their irrational support of Barbara Rothstein's criminal opinion in King County v. Rasmussen (2001). In the case of this labor union of judges, the employer is we-the-people of the United States. In the same way a rogue labor union can destroy its employer, we-the-people seem to be unable to stop the criminal activity in this rogue labor union of judges. There actions are destroying the judicial branch of our government.

So, is this Treason?

     On this website I describe a criminal act committed from the bench by a federal judge. To cover up this crime, that federal judge denied my right to present my case in court. She denied my constitutional right of due process. The three judge federal appeals paned knew exactly what had happened, and chose to support their dishonest colleague rather than grant my constitutional rights in court. This injustice was appealed to the full Ninth Circuit federal court. Every judge in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit chose to support the dishonesty of their fellow federal judges and deny my constitutional right to present my case to a jury. The States Supreme Court was apparently too busy to correct the Ninth Circuit, or just didn't care. This website describes, in great detail, these criminal acts. When judges conspire to destroy the rights of a party in order to protect a fellow judge, as they have done here, they destroy the law and the codes by which we live. This will destroy our Nation. This is treason.
