A Brief Biography of this Website's Author

by John Rasmussen

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



     My name is John Rasmussen. I established this website after my rights as an American were destroyed in federal court and the courts of the State of Washington. I worked to defend my rights by appealing as far as the United States Supreme Court, which declined to consider the dishonest Ninth Circuit decisions against me. I brought issues of criminal activity to federal and state judges, the leadership of King County, a federal prosecutor, the IRS, a number of politicians, the local newspapers, and several members of the national media. I offered evidence of the federal tax fraud scheme used to steal my land for a bicycle trail. Not one party was willing to look at the evidence and call for an investigation. When the fraud was presented in Ninth Circuit courts, the federal judges struck evidence of the tax fraud scheme and issued decisions that covered-up the crime. That evidence is available to the public on this website. It appears that our society has evolved to the point that an individual no longer has rights when those rights conflict with the agendas of folks in powerful leadership positions. The Constitution and laws are of little value if they are not recognized and enforced in our government and courts.

     I come from a background that no longer seems to fit in with "modern America". I grew up on a farm in Eastern Washington and I'm anchored in the values that come from farm life; a strong belief in the rights of an individual as "guaranteed" in the U.S. Constitution; a belief in hard work and the right to benefit from oneís labor; the right to own property and benefit from its use; a respect for the rights of others. Sadly, these rights and responsibilities are no longer valued and defended by those we entrust with the administration of our government. When I discovered that the King County Prosecutor had participated in a federal tax fraud scheme and challenged him to explain his actions, the Prosecutor responded by falsely manufacturing a criminal identity for me in order to protect himself, and the leadership of King County, from federal prosecution. When these lies were presented to Judge Donald Haley in King County Superior Court, the judge issued a preliminary injunction against me in the face of ridiculous slanderous claims by the King County Prosecutor and threats of false felony prosecution. Later, this slanderous impression of me was referred to in Senior Federal Circuit Judge Betty Binns Fletcherís appeals opinion. I was denied the most basic right to defend myself from those lies and false accusations. I offer this brief biography to correct the false impression manufactured by the King County Prosecutor.

     I was raised on my grandparentís farm near Richland, Washington. Our family consisted of my mother, my sister, my motherís parents, and me. In my youth I was active in church, 4H, and various sports teams. During High School, I began working for a veterinarian before school, and full time in the summer. In 1962, I graduated from Richland High School, and that fall entered Washington State University with the plan to become an engineer or veterinarian. During that first year at WSU, I applied for an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. I was accepted, entered Annapolis in the summer of 1963, and graduated in June 1967. I began flight training that fall and received my Navy wings in early 1969. I married in mid 1969 and have two sons who are now adults. My former wife, Nancy, and I are divorced after thirty-three years of marriage. In late 1972, I left Navy active duty to seek a career in commercial aviation, and continued to fly P3 Orion patrol aircraft for the Navy Reserve. In my civilian aviation career, I worked for two different airfreight companies starting in 1973 and ending with retirement in 2004. During those years I flew DC-8, B-747, and MD-11 aircraft.

     Going back in time, my family moved to Washington Territory in the late 1800ís. Weíve benefited from the opportunities afforded by Washington Territory/State and this Country, and in turn have contributed back as honest, hard working people. The road to our old family farm is named for my grandparents. The bridge across the Yakima River at Richland Washington was named in honor of my great grandparents. The East Benton County Historical Museum in Kennewick, Washington has many exhibits donated by my family. The Richland library has interview tapes of my grandmother, providing an oral history of the area. My family has honorably lived in Washington State for over one hundred years.

     Our family moved to King County in 1979. I was away with my work for about half of every month. My wife, Nancy, was a stay-at-home mom. Without a job commitment, she volunteered extensively in the community and the schools, and was given awards for her volunteer work. In 1992, we moved to our home on Lake Sammamish. Several years later, BNSF railbanked the East Lake Sammamish right-of-way and we began the fruitless fight for our rights as property owners. Over the next few years, we discovered that the law and the Constitution donít mean much in King County, Washington.

     As I wrote above, after I discovered East Lake Sammamish federal tax fraud scheme, and challenged the County leadership to investigate, the King County Prosecutor manufactured a criminal identity for me to threaten and discredit me in the press and the courts. The absurdity of his accusations are documented in my annotated version of King County Superior Court Judge Donald Haley's King County v. Rasmussen preliminary injunction hearing on September 14, 2000. I draw attention to this dishonest attack on my character because, if this website draws public attention to King County's crimes, the characterless lawyers in the King County Prosecutor's office will renew their slanderous accusations against me. The willingness of the King County Prosecutor to falsely depict me as some sort of criminal stemmed from his need to hide his criminal activity, and has nothing to do with the truth of who I am.
