Chapter Quatro | Defining the Teams

By this time, one might be asking themselves, “how many different elements to this Waco puzzle are there, and will it start making a clear picture?” The easiest response is, not until all of the “teams” and their members are properly identified, will this chaos start to show some patterns.

There are sibling pages dedicated for some of the individual members of the teams from law enforcement. All Law Enforcement Officers (L.E.O.) are officers of the court, but with different levels of tax funded incomes, and with different ranking structure, very much like the military. “The lawyers for both sides are also officers of the court. Their job is to represent their clients zealously, within the formal rules of the Code of Professional Conduct. The belief is that justice can best be achieved if each side’s case is vigorously presented by competent legal counsel.” – American Bar Association How Courts Work | Steps in a Trial | Officers of the Court

Some L.E.O. will have dual roles as a Department of Public Safety officer, as well as also garnering a Department of Homeland Security training pay check, reporting to, and training with the all inclusive D.H.S. The “former” B.A.T.F.E. agent(s) in this particular case might now work with and/or for the I.O.M.G.I.A. ran by Steve Cook and L.V.P.D. Detective John Woosnam. (*** WARNING – Malicious Web site for I.O.M.G.I.A.***)

The art of keeping things separated in this tragedy is quite difficult, mostly for the fact that there are dual roles present. Some bikers have dual roles. This is a valid time to clarify that just because a person works for the federal government, or trains with federal agencies that they are NOT (automatically) a “bad” person.

The same is true for a biker, just because they are essentially the exact opposite of a federal agent, that are they are NOT (automatically) a “bad” individual.

Law Enforcement Motorcycle Clubs (L.E.M.C.) exist, which helps declare to fellow riders, of their chosen profession. It is when federal agents pose as non L.E.M.C. members to try and incite, instigate, and inform on any 1% M.C. club, in order to provide elements for the prosecution of a case against a group of motorcycle enthusiasts. This usually leaves people dead, and providing M.C.’s validation for the role of federal agents as agent provocateurs.

March 2013 Watch-list Guidance for Federal Agencies

The easiest way to separate the teams at this juncture is:

  1. Bikers
    Bikers are in their own category, and their teams are decided by club choice, or an independent status. (There are several L.E. motorcycle riders who wear identical clothing to the 1% clubs without usually dawning the actual number one itself.)
    This is not true for the Iron Order Riding Club, they try and mimic all 1% MC’s to instigate them into responding violently, as this is their only purpose on earth. The kind of motorcycle one rides can also help define the type of team as well. – Self Funded if non-L.E.O.
  2. Jurors
    – This is the one bit of humanity that stands between a conviction system and putting a human to death or in a cage. Any citizen who qualifies is a potential juror.
  3. Law Enforcement Officers
    L.E.O. are the enforcement arm of the court system, and all county court staff are officers of the courts. (This category also includes paid trolls for the Federal and State agencies. – Tax Payer Funded
  4. Attorneys – These are also officers of the courts, however they are hired to defend as well as prosecute cases. Prosecutors are Tax Payer Funded, and so are the defense attorneys in some cases where the defendant can not afford an attorney. Court appointed attorneys can offer to work pro bono, knowing that the state will have to fund the expert witnesses, private investigators, and other fee based services with county tax dollars.
  5. Family Members – All sides have family members who are usually highly loyal to their perspective teams. – Self Funded if non-L.E.O.
  6. US media ownership by 6 companies “News” organizations in the media, or any FCC licensed and accredited news outlet or journalists in the United States, are their own team (who are owned by one of six larger corporations/families) – Tax Payer Subsidized, Heavily Funded by the Advertising Industry. There for, we the purchaser, pay for the monopoly in the long run at the register in prices incorporated by the product producer.
  7. Witnesses present at the event/tragedy. – Employees of Texas Roadhouse, Twin Peaks, Don Carlos as well as patrons in the Central Texas Marketplace in Waco, Texas on May 17th, 2015.
  8. Spectators – Those who are a witness to an incident before, during or after the fact, but not necessarily at the event. – Self Funded if non-L.E.
  9. Protestors or Advocates – These are those “brave souls” who chose to publicly protest, online and in person against the abuse levied against the 192 motorcycle enthusiasts on May 17th, 2015. Those who stay online with their opinions are usually considered keyboard warriors, or internet detectives, perhaps quarterbacks, you name it, keyboard insert role here.
    There should be much attention paid to those who are paid to mine data online, especially where there job is also to incite a response from an intended target. Otherwise known as trolling, and if paid for by “tax payer funded-law enforcement” paychecks, they will be placed on the L.E. team. A great example of targeted online efforts is Project Alamo, the database of facebook users that the Trump campaign targeted during the 2016 Elections.
  10. Civilian Citizen Tax Payer – Usually a blissfully unaware average human who qualifies as the typical neighbor next door, reads up on local news and events, but does not spend time following up on much news information. Normally this person would be called for Jury Selection, however in McLennan County that determination is made by the District Attorneys office, as there is ZERO oversight nor accountability for counties to follow the law.
  11. Bloggers and journalist writers for personal establishments are on another team with similar goals, but not the same rules as mass media outlets, also lacking “proper” credentials. This contingent makes up around 1% of the information found online regarding current news and or alternatives to the main stream media’s “facts”. Usually self funded journalism is seen as un-professional writing at best, or non-credible at worst, which is unfortunate that the masses need to see information in several places in order to grant it validity.
    Bloggers worth following for current news about Waco Twin Peaks are few,

    1. Aging Rebel who has an informative website called Aging Rebel, and the author also has several books out about the California B.A.T.F.E. attack on the Mongols, well worth the time to read his work, as it is the precursor for Operation Bottom Rocker to target any club who supported the “Save the Patch” campaign for the Mongols MC.
    2. Candy Chand is a writer living in Cave Creek, AZ. She’s been interviewed on Fox & Friends, NPR and PBS. Message, and follow, her on Facebook @ Candy Chand—Writer
    3. Popeye with Texas Biker Radio who has stayed on top of the Waco tragedy and more, and has done a great job as a leader in the C.o.C.&I.
    4. Not A. Lawyer, who wrote this book and has authored several other websites concerning Cannabis, Agriculture and Human Health.
  • Now that the basic teams have been defined, the next step will be to show a visualization of the teams and their contributions towards this situation. A “train up” occurred in Waco, Tx in April 2015 at the McLennan County Community College campus featuring Steve Cook, John Woosnam, Doug Pearson, Chip Hundley, and Texas DPS undercover agents.

The following article Law enforcement flock to Waco for gang conference is from KXXV ABC Central Texas on Friday, June 19th 2015, 10:09 am CDT | MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) – “Law enforcement officials from across the country met at McLennan Community College for four days for a private conference about policing the growth of motorcycle gangs.

The conference, put on by the Midwest Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Investigators Association out of St. Louis, MO, was scheduled before the Twin Peaks shooting May 17 after investigators saw rising tensions between motorcycle gangs on the rise in Central Texas.

“We do a considerable amount of talking about these confederations and coalitions… and try to make them understand a little bit the motives behind these is other than what they advertise,” MOMGIA Executive Director, Steve Cook said.

Cook, who’s gone undercover with motorcycle gangs in the past, agreed to allow News Channel 25 to report on the conference, but only until after it was over. This was to protect the identities of officers still undercover.

Behind locked doors, officers learned how motorcycle gangs operate, often dealing in drug and human trafficking. Gangs often transport and sell methamphetamine and have a structure similar to military or para-military organizations. Cook said they’ve seen an influx of gang members that are also a part of motorcycle clubs and club confederations.

“They’re absolutely gangs. If you’re wearing a 1-percent diamond and you’re associating with the individuals these people and associating with the kinds of activities they are, they’re a gang by any classification and to take it a step further, they’re organized crime,” Cooks said.

Cook said nothing much changed in what the officers were learning in the four day long classes because of the Twin Peaks shooting. He said the shooting is just the latest in a long line of biker gang related incidents across the country.

“It’s rampant. They’re spreading all across the country, all over the world for that matter…You’re either going to pay attention to these guys or you’re going to ignore them,” Cook said.”

McLennan County District Attorneys Office
In an article titled Top prosecutors leave local DA’s office in post-election churn
By Paul J. Gately | Posted: Tue 7:10 PM, Apr 17, 2018 | Updated: Tue 8:03 PM, Apr 17, 2018
WACO, Texas (KWTX) The first assistant district attorney and another felony prosecutor, both of whom made up a significant portion of the McLennan County District Attorney’s Twin Peaks trial team, announced Tuesday they are leaving the office in a post-election churn following District Attorney Abel Reyna’s loss to challenger Barry Johnson in the March Republican Primary.

Johnson won with 60 percent of the vote.

First Assistant District Attorney Michael Jarrett announced Tuesday he’s taken a job with the Texas Farm Bureau and prosecutor Brodie Burks will move to Austin and work the governor’s office and advise on criminal justice issues.

Jarrett, the lead prosecutor in the only Twin Peaks case to go to trial, and Burks, who helped prosecute Christopher Jacob Carrizal, both have participated in preparing Twin Peaks cases for prosecution since the district attorney began taking the cases to court.

The Carrizal case ended in a mistrial and is set for re-trial, but Jarrett likely won’t be around to try it.

Burks goes to work for Gov. Greg Abbott on May 1.

Jarrett has served as first assistant since he came to the office in 2011 when District Attorney Abel Reyna was elected.

Jarrett had previously prosecuted cases in Dallas and Williamson counties.

Reyna, Jarrett, Burks and assistant DA Amanda Dillion prosecuted the Carrizal case last November.

With Jarrett and Burks leaving, there was no word on who would lead the remaining Twin Peaks prosecutions.

Burks came to work for Reyna in 2017.

Phone calls Tuesday to Reyna were not returned.

Prosecutor terminated after the election.

Two weeks ago Reyna terminated his 19th District Court felony chief prosecutor Aubrey Robertson.

The termination came after Reyna learned Robertson had been talking with Johnson.

Robertson, who was featured prominently in Reyna’s campaign television ads, was paid $85,902, the budgeted salary for a court chief, according to the most recent salary scale posted on the county’s website.

For his part, Johnson has said the meeting, in Robertson’s courthouse complex office, dealt with certain paperwork that he needed to complete and Robertson provided the documents to Johnson for execution.

Johnson said there was no conversation of a political nature, at all.

Someone inside the DA’s office on the day Robertson was terminated sent a text to a former assistant DA about the firing, which that person later shared with KWTX.

The text said the accusation of insubordination revolved around a comment Robertson was said to have made in 19th District Court, but it was not specific about what the comment was.

As well, the text said the charge had to do with two case files that Robertson had reviewed that were not assigned to him, although as chief prosecutor in a district court, he wouldn’t have needed authorization.

Nineteenth District Court Judge Ralph Strother made no complaint to Reyna about Robertson.

A number of staffers have fallen by the roadside.

Robertson remains merely the most recent to fall by the Reyna roadside, illuminated in past months through a series of court hearings and other issues that now see former employees accusing Reyna of inappropriate or unethical conduct.

The list of former staff members includes attorneys Greg Davis, Joe Flynn, Angel Mata, Lauren McLeod, Beth Toben, Michelle Voirin, Joe Layman, Robert Callahan, Nancy Harrison, J.R. Vicha, Landon Ramsay, Brandon Luce, Chris Bullajian, Brittany (Lanning) Scaramucci, Andrew Erwin, Alex Bell, Liz Buice, Kimberly Lucas, Erin Toolan, Michael Sheets, Bryan Bufkin and Robertson.

Others include former office staff members Dede Gordon, Julie Olajarski, Steve January, Lori Vernon, Cinnamon Merrit, Mark Ledger, Ashley Windham, Amy Kuznarik, Julissa West, Montea Stewart, Don Marshall, Mark Gosselin and Lynette Barbera.

Bryan Bufkin resigned his assistant district attorney’s job after just one day.

This list is a “work in progress” and not a completed list as of July 25th, 2018. This was published to help defense attorneys in their efforts to defend the false accusations against a particular Motorcycle Club leveled by the B.A.T.F.E. using local law enforcement, primarily through Steve Cook’s training courses and Doug Pearson’s white papers for the D.I.A.

Chapter Tres | Are we Loyal to Our Team?

What does Loyalty mean to the average person? It seems that most humans are loyal only to their desires deep down in their heart and it shows more when they do not get what they want. For example take a modern football game and look at the fans and participants. When the University of Texas is ahead in the score and the season, the Longhorn fans are ecstatic, jovial and passionate. These fans want a win, to be victorious over the other team and will do or say anything to show their willingness to win and their die hard loyalty to their team – win or lose loyalty is what they have. Fans who are only loyal when their team wins are called fair weather fans.

To be loyal in the sports team fan context has its various meanings. Let us consider the intent of an entire group of people, perhaps a riding club in the motorcycle enthusiast’s world whom has the outward intent of becoming an M.C. and a support club of an established dominant club. Around 2011 in Bell County Texas – Killeen area, which is the largest military base in the nation, a riding club named the Dirty Knuckles was founded by Arron Carpenter (ABC), who wanted to be a support club for a larger club, yet there was already an established and highly loyal support club in that area.

The answer was “NO!” to forming a support club, (at least twice the answer was NO!), The Dirty Knuckles were not only told “NO!” they were warned that the club members were wearing “unsanctioned patches.” The Dirty Knuckles not only continued to wear their “unsanctioned patches”, the majority of the Dirty Knuckles patched over to an MC that was much older, yet not the dominant club of Texas. This old club was wearing a new patch on the bottom of their 3 piece, a Texas Rocker, and they were doing their best to make sure that the current dominant club saw their defiance to wear the patch and play the part of an old school outlaw biker. Meanwhile 95% of American clubs were on the same page, unified to fight one common problem, motorcycle safety, motorcycle rights, and motorcycle profiling through a Legislative Strike Force.

Now you have “unsanctioned patches” (which happen to make their way onto e-bay), an older club who insists on wearing Texas on the bottom of their 3 piece back patch (very likely also purchased from e-bay), and now patching over former prospecting clubs who wanted to be a support club for the Bandidos. That is 3 strikes of disrespect to the dominant club of any state and this does not even include the assaults from Cossacks toward the Bandidos or members of the CoC&I of which most did not get reported to the police, or local news reporters.

Cossacks | ABC hugging member SS tatt and patches
Cossacks | ABC hugging another member. Notice the SS tatt and patches. The question has been raised as to when Rod Adoylette from the Waco Tribune captured this image. Seems to be after the separation of the groups for detainment. (Interesting that these riders have water bottles when the C.o.C.&I. were not allowed such necessities for hours.)

What would any self-respecting person do much less an International Motorcycle Club?

Since contacting the police is not protocol, dealing with such disrespect had to happen in some form or fashion.

When the Dirty Knuckles had shown their true colors and “loyalty” to the dominant club of Texas, and then proved that their loyalty was not actually for the Bandidos, but any club who would take them and allow their choice of patches, in hind sight it seems that the Bandits made the correct choice to tell the Dirty Knuckles “No!”

These actions were made when some of the patches that have either been reserved for 1%ers or 1% clubs or that had no purpose other than advertising hate, were not only being sold online, but these patches made it onto the cuts of Cossacks who have always claimed to not be a 1% club. To anyone observing, who also knows the road, they saw it for what it was, some “want to bees” gearing up to act like bad asses, but not having the class enough to know better than whom to mess with. Don’t mess with Texas.

Cossacks killing Independent Rider Mohawk at Twin Peaks in Waco, Texas on May 17th, 2015

The leader of the Dirty Knuckles had loyalty for money, profit and greed from the sale of the patches and masked it as rebellious angst towards the Bandidos who told him “NO!” Having to earn some patches meant that riders had been on their bike for a certain amount of miles, had accomplished certain training courses, and done certain work for the M.C. such as road guard duty, organizing road trips and maintaining group security.

Take a road trip with a group of bikers for example, there is such a thing as what they call a road guard who will ride up front of the group, side of formation, and back of the group with the sole purpose of providing a safe trip for the group by watching out for cars and pedestrians that are not watching out for the group. Gawkers are dangerous. To ensure the safety of the group, if someone is driving dangerously the road guard will pull up next to the vehicle and stop the vehicle so that the group can go on about their trip. He risks his safety for the group’s safety, and that is no different than what these political bikers do in Congress for all motorcycle riders.

The events in Waco happened to be between, what the Confederation of Clubs and Independents might call, unsafe drivers and the State of Texas’ Road Guard. Now this is not an official coining of a phrase, but it works for this analogy.

The C.o.C. & I., which is a Texas anomaly for allowing independent riders (solo riders and small clubs not big enough to be M.C.’s) to join in a Confederation which is traditionally reserved for M.C. clubs and their chapters. The C.o.C.&I. were holding a meeting to discuss politics, in Waco on May 17th, 2015, when dangerous drivers hijacked the patio. As per protocol, the club that is tasked with safety for meetings and road trips maneuvered in to ensure that everything was kosher and safe, and that is when the ambush happened in broad daylight.

Finally the feds had proof that the Bandidos were regulating territory against the ever growing Cossack faction that dared to challenge the big bad bikers stomping grounds of Texas. Except that it was the Cossacks who were ready for a fight to include weapons of brass knuckles, whips, chains, blunt objects, knives, pistols and large caliber weapons.

The Bandits were outnumbered, out gunned, and flanked on all sides, yet they were not out classed. They had one final say as to what they thought of the Cossacks. The symbolism was to have a new Bandido prospect show off his clean cut, who walked his new colors through the sea of yellow in the Twin Peaks parking lot.

This biker, whom had left the Cossacks as their “Regional Sgt. of Arms” because they “did not share his same values,” started riding with the Free Wheelers MC a few months before May 17th.

He then patched up to the Bandidos as a prospect, once his riding skills were tested and approved.

This now prospect, who knew the intimate secrets and multi state dealings with other clubs of the Cossacks, and…… was now “one of them.” To the astonished parking lot of yellow, this was not cool, not cool at all.

Considering the human race, we are not as loyal to our own humanity when we have a personal agenda. Humans are usually only as faithful as our options.

One thing that the Cossacks did not care to acknowledge, especially publicly, is that they had been courted by an international club that had been infiltrated by the ATF several times, with the sole purpose to start a war between two clubs. This information was known by the dominant club of Texas, and since this was not the first time this sort of thing happened it would take finesse to ensure that this alliance would never take place.

When the Cossacks flirted with the Vagos for support in wearing their Texas rocker, those who had enough snap to talk to other clubs were quickly educated as to the ATF’s standard operating procedure, and it lined up point for point with what a few of the Cossacks were doing to this formerly mild mannered Motorcycle Club. The other things that the Cossacks failed to acknowledge is how many former or current police officers of the court they had in their ranks, which in hind sight, might be sort of important to come to terms with.

Having seen their former Regional Sargent at Arms stroll through a group of Cossacks with his Bandido cut on, infuriated most of the members of the Cossacks, but the one who is upset the most is “Big O” and when he gets pissed, he does not hide it well at all, as he stays pissed most of the time. When a father gets upset, his son usually gets angry as well, and these two started it all on that fateful Sunday in the Twin Peaks parking lot.

The Cossacks showing up to a C.o.C.&I. meeting to give a big middle finger towards the rest of the motorcycling community is proof enough to the rest of the riders that the Cossacks would never have enough common sense to earn the right to wear that Texas patch on their cut, as it gives Texas a bad name. Wearing a state on your cut means that you also voluntarily regulate the riff raff of said state, and this was one such occasion.

After the Bandidos finally show up after an hour of Cossacks ordering drinks, smoking cigarettes on the Twin Peaks patio, and parking their bikes in as many open spaces as possible, the local law enforcement gang had the joint surrounded.

There will be a key point of interest in the cases going forward concerning one question: Why did LE over look an assault on a female volunteer who was there to set up her booth and provide parking for the C.o.C.&I. meeting when the Cossacks came in to park their bikes?
A: It seems that since she was not a “Bandido”, the cops did not care what the Cossacks did to her.

Chapter Dos | Investigate to Instigate

Being true to the pattern of training, most operations will have some form of guidelines, some rules of engagement at the minimum. There have been several Federal programs that have launched heavily funded infiltration tactics on different social, racial, and political groups since domestic intelligence gathering began with J Edger Hoover, the head of the F.B.I. in the 50’s, when they surveilled the general populace looking for Russian spies, and soviet sympathizers. That was their guise anyway.

“Centralized operations under COINTELPRO officially began in August 1956 with a program designed to “increase factionalism, cause disruption and win defections” inside the Communist Party U.S.A. (CPUSA). Tactics included anonymous phone calls, IRS audits, and the creation of documents that would divide the American communist organization internally.[11] An October 1956 memo from Hoover reclassified the FBI’s ongoing surveillance of black leaders, including it within COINTELPRO, with the justification that the movement was infiltrated by communists.[12] In 1956, Hoover sent an open letter denouncing Dr. T.R.M. Howard, a civil rights leader, surgeon, and wealthy entrepreneur in Mississippi who had criticized FBI inaction in solving recent murders of George W. Lee, Emmett Till, and other blacks in the South.[13] When the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), an African-American civil rights organization, was founded in 1957, the FBI began to monitor and target the group almost immediately, focusing particularly on Bayard Rustin, Stanley Levison, and, eventually, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.[14]”

Fast forward almost 70 years into the future and there is not only a vast Military Industrial Complex of private companies biding for government contracts to build war machines for air, land and sea. There are also DoD, DIA, and DoJ contracts going towards private companies that build electronic systems that will capture, retrieve, store, copy, clone, image, duplicate, filter and process any person’s data who is on or offline.

The largest of these firms collecting ALL of our data, used to employ the now famous Edward Snowden, who was brave enough to inform the population of the facts of their actions, leading to his political exile, currently in Russia.

One of the most common unlawful methods of electronic data from a group at any location, static or mobile, is the Stingray fake cell tower, made by Harris. This method has been utilized for about 20 years in the United States in different forms but the latest design has made it affordable and accessible to use in large cities with war protestors, rights activists and overall government defectors.

“It seems that the devices are often sold in packages, like the StingRay II (a more powerful, updated version of your typical StingRay) Vehicular System. This comes with equipment for operating a StingRay from a patrol vehicle and three different kinds of Harris’ Harpoon signal amplifiers. A laptop, three kinds of software for accessing different types of cellular networks, and an AmberJack cellphone tracker are also included for a grand total of $148,000. ” – Here’s How Much a StingRay Cell Phone Surveillance Tool Costs

The most common way to capture the data from a person’s life is to make the average online experience a social one, make it free, easy to use, and popular, and the average person will provide their most intimate details with the world through selfies and descriptions there of.

We now provide Terabytes of information on a daily basis to a social network that in turn creates a profile that has value to both private and government sectors. Few companies monopolize this industry like the facebook does.

“At Facebook, we have unique storage scalability challenges when it comes to our data warehouse. Our warehouse stores upwards of 300 PB of Hive data, with an incoming daily rate of about 600 TB. In the last year, the warehouse has seen a 3x growth in the amount of data stored. Given this growth trajectory, storage efficiency is and will continue to be a focus for our warehouse infrastructure.” – April 10, 2014 – Scaling the Facebook data warehouse to 300 PB

In the after math of the Twin Peaks Ambush, there is a federal operation in place that specifically reaches into the social network lives of bikers and those who support them. This effort is focusing in on the “protestors,” and the way in which the entire motorcycle community was going to protest or react to this “ambush on a political meeting,” as well as find connections to “would be persons of interest”  that would be necessary to try and prosecute the political entity target.

This evidence would be necessary when prosecuting a large organization such as an MC. The investigation is lead by the Department of Homeland Security, and although the name of the operation is not yet known, the existence has been experienced first hand.

The main organizer of this information is a Mesquite, Texas fireman, and trained DHS agent. James Baldwin, or “Jim” as he asks to be called, rallied several family members who were effected by the Twin Peaks tragedy and placed them in “chat rooms” and closed pages on social media to discuss the events of the day, as well as the lead up to the event. Baldwin worked closely with or for, the Looney & Conrad Law firm with weekly reports of intelligence gathered from online sources.

Interesting enough after James Baldwin read his name in this chapter, he called out the author by name, seemingly upset. Danielle Luther was sure to post DHS Agent Baldwin’s words to the One Nation Under Arrest facebook page. Danielle Bundy Luther, Richard “Lexx” Luther’s supposed wife, text Lexx on May 17, 2015 that she was “going to ride with Sassy to Waco to pick up Bill.” Presumably William Flowers (AKA Bill, Billy, Cossack Stone Cold). It was William Flowers who invited Richard Luther and his riders to Twin Peaks, not a member of the Red and Gold MC. Very vocal group of people. Flowers’ interview with FBI Agent Skillstead revealed that of the 1,300 Cossacks in Texas, 20 of the riders are known Law Enforcement Officers from “Ft. Worth Police Department to Harris County S.W.A.T.”
For those of you who have yet to read the About the Author section of this book, here is the authors information. As a disabled Veteran, garnering a “federal” paycheck for disabilities acquired during service, Agent Baldwin is half correct in his assumption that the author is federally connected to anything in this tragedy, however he is absolutely lying about his (Agent Baldwin’s) role in the aftermath of Twin Peaks.

It was Agent Baldwin who introduced Rich Luther to the author, and it was Agent Baldwin who tried to get the author to provide $40,000 worth of plant material to Lexx in December of 2015 whilst in Colorado. Agent Baldwin used the “colorblind” line often when defending the Cossacks actions before and after Twin Peaks. Yet he was adamant that NO R&G were added to the closed room group. Baldwin gave Admin status to the author when Baldwin’s relationship with Roxanne Avery was being questioned by her boss and sometimes boyfriend, Paul Looney, as well as her husband.

The sway of the conversation and domination there of, after the fact, was necessary for all of the federal organizations involved that needed a slight of hand to magically disappear from the conversation and be void from the average protestors mouth and of course, not appear in any news media, local or national.

The Federal Communications Commission would never allow their enforcement branches to look bad in public. So the task of cleaning up a huge train wreck of an undercover operation was left to the “local yocals” to figure out, yet with the help of the press, and the Department of Justice, it would be possible.

“Sink Swanton” was a talking point in the protests, instead of “Arrest McCraw.” Keep the conversation local in focus, which deserves as much attention as it can get, but the protestors barely mentioned larger entities such as the DoJ, DoD, DIA, NCC, DHS, DEA, FBI, BATFE, TABC, Texas Parks and Wildlife or DPS, all of whom where present in some form or fashion on May 17th, 2015.

Almost pointless to say, but “no one blamed the FCC for airing such blatant lies during the coverage of the tragic event and the horrific aftermath.” For the last 6 months of 2015, the focus on the tragedy was on two attorney’s strategies for the defense of less than a dozen victims, and even a few aggressors in the situation.

NOTE: Both of those outspoken attorneys were representing both sides of the tragedy:
Clint Broden represents the Scmimtars, lead by a former Son’s of the South biker, which would make him a former C.o.C. & I. Member, Matthew Clendennan. Broden also represents a C.o.C. & I. biker from the Dallas area, both of his clients were indicted, Clendennan was indicted for a second time on August 16th, 2017.

Paul Looney, from Houston, was representing two bikers who were not indicted from the C.o.C. & I. as well as a Cossack who was indicted twice. This Cossack gave a graphic fictional story to the press about how his step-dad was murdered in front of him by members of the C.o.C. & I.. Cossack Cody Ledbetter, not to be confused with DPS Sgt. Cory Ledbetter, opened up to the public for sympathy when he gave a first hand account how his step-dad was murdered point blank. Latter ballistics would show that the bullets that entered Boyett’s skull were from Law Enforcement automatic weapons, one bullet likely from WPD S.W.A.T. Michael Bucher and one bullet from one of the two DPS agents shooting from Don Carlos patio, likely DPS Sgt. Cory Ledbetter. Ironic?

How Paul Looney was able to garner a stage at C.o.C.&I. events speaking to the audience about what they should do in protest, was the spark to write this novel of information. Within 60 days of his stage appearance in Austin, he was in the Waco courthouse laying waste to the big bad bandits on record. Smooth move ABA, DoJ, DPS, very clever.

Q: How does the legal system continue to rule and control the general population?

Analogy: Suppose we flipped a coin to decide who gets to spend tax dollars. Two possible outcomes if one party chose heads, while the other got tails. One outcome is only possible if in reality both parties were answering to a larger group who owns the actions of either group. In this analogy the larger group who owns both parties actions is the Department of Justice controlled by the American Bar Association. Any wonder why FBI agents have to pass and maintain a passing grade on a BAR exam each year to maintain their agent status?

If patterns are to be noticed the narrative would be: “Make sure the media will only pay attention to local court procedures that will never be fruitful, all the while the Department of Justice continues on with mission as planned.” With a likely mission statement directed to DHS as: “Observe and report all interactions between clubs and those supporting them.”

The following excerpt is from an insightful whitepaper written for the Pew Foundation, and the New American Century, (think tanks for lobbyists and large corporations, such as ammunition manufacturers, prison construction companies, the prison industry, and the military industrial complex as a whole.) The following extended quote might have been used as guidelines on how to instigate, rather than deconfliction as the author intended.
The focus is on a series of Federal Investigations into “patriot type” movements from the 80’s until around 2005, namely Operation PATCON. The 1993 time frame is important to note during the timeline of events when the first Waco tragedy took place where the same entities above collided right outside of town near Mt. Carmel, Texas. The entire 40+ pages is worth the time to read as it mentions federal agencies not knowing each other had undercover agents or high level informants in certain positions and they fed each other crime and blamed it on the groups they were surveilling. If history repeats itself, then the B.A.T.F.E. will show up in the center of the Twin Peaks Ambush, and too bad for the victims, the B.A.T.F.E. is who is in charge of ballistics.

Recommendations

“The PATCON case study points to the need to gather more data on the secondary effects of infiltration and to manage the use of this tool more responsibly. Areas for further study and additional government disclosure include:
An independent examination of the FBI’s statistical scoring system for evaluating field office performance, with an eye toward measuring how the frequency of use of extraordinary tools such as Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants and undercover operations compares to the frequency of prosecutions resulting from such investigations.

This should not be seen as marshaling evidence against the use of extraordinary tools, but the number of completed prosecutions is a valid and useful data point in this discussion. The statistical scoring system should also be evaluated as to whether it creates artificial pressure to use infiltration and other extraordinary techniques apart from a legitimate investigative interest. A quantitative study of the long-term use by federal agencies of confidential sources (informants) and undercover operations that have been publicly disclosed.

This study should identify useful data for comparison and analysis, such as the length of infiltration, the number of agents and informants per target, the number of targets covered by each agent and informant, the tactics used to infiltrate, conviction rates, and judicial rulings on the admissibility of informant and undercover testimony. The study should also define and quantify the types of confidential sources used, since these can range from a one-time report of suspected misdoings to extended surveillance by paid informants.

Use of the Freedom of Information Act to create additional detailed case studies of historical infiltration operations that have not been fully and publicly disclosed, with special attention to violent extremism cases with significant risk of alienating or radicalizing feedback in targeted communities.

Detailed polling and focus groups to collect data on how infiltration is perceived in both targeted communities and control groups, with an eye toward understanding the secondary effects of infiltration and how they affect public trust in government and willingness to cooperate with law enforcement. Case studies on the use of informants and undercover operations by local law enforcement agencies in different jurisdictions, where many of the same issues apply. Compare and contrast these examples with federal programs.

Additional study should proceed with a clear understanding that infiltration is an important tool for law enforcement, but one that poses unique challenges in direct proportion to its unique capabilities. Such study should be undertaken by strictly neutral parties rather than advocates, since the volume and nature of the data make it easy to selectively mine information in support of a per-determined conclusion. The extreme complexity and political volatility of the issues that arise from infiltration programs create an unusually high risk of such confirmation bias.” – J.M. Berger, May 2012 National Security Studies Program Policy Paper – PATCON – The FBI’s Secret War Against the ‘Patriot’ Movement, and How Infiltration Tactics Relate to Radicalizing Influences

“We have investigated ourselves and found that we have done nothing wrong, and we need more money. “ Texas Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Tom Vigner, March 2015.

This satire quote by the author can easily explain much of what took place in the investigation that would happen in May regarding the DPS involvement of their infiltration of the C.o.C.&I. meeting at Twin Peaks. April of 2015 just so happens to be when DPS became in charge of investigating public corruption in Texas (including Law Enforcement), instead of the special commission formed through the District Attorney’s office of Travis County.

“In 2013, she was arrested for and pleaded guilty to drunk driving. She was sentenced to forty-five days in jail.[5] According to Lehmberg’s lawyer, David Sheppard, Lehmberg’s sentence was “without doubt the harshest sentence anyone has ever received for first time DWI” in Travis County.[6] Video of her detainment and extremely inebriated and aggressive behavior was released to the public. Governor Rick Perry demanded Lehmberg’s resignation, and stated that if she did not step down, he would use his line-item veto power to cut all funding to the Public Accountability Office which is under Lehmberg’s authority. Lehmberg refused, and Governor Perry vetoed the office’s funding. Perry was indicted for this action but was later cleared of all charges.”

She had a logical case against Perry, and the state of Texas would have been in for a rude awakening from the evidence, but her infraction got more publicity than his. FCC strikes again.

Texans almost got hope for a reprieve from this police state abuse in 2017, but funding was never appropriated for a renewed Public Integrity Unit by the District Attorneys office of Travis County.

“Now under new management, the Travis County district attorney’s office is trying to restore some muscle to its Public Integrity Unit after a Republican backlash led to deep funding cuts and limitations on the unit’s duties.

Under District Attorney Margaret Moore, who took office in January, negotiations with Gov. Greg Abbott’s office and key lawmakers paid off when the proposed House budget, introduced earlier this year, set aside $4.8 million for the unit.

But the budget approved this week by the Senate included no money for the Travis County division, raising doubts about plans to beef up the unit’s investigations and prosecution of insurance scams and fraud committed against state agencies or by state employees.” – Travis County eyes restored Public Integrity Unit

Has anyone taken the time to question how any leadership in government, or even media themselves can claim any news source is “Fake News?” They are all governed by the same Federal Communications Commission, and the broadcasting company airing the fake words would have their license revoked for broadcast if the government did not want it stated. Enter “free speech” and you have an interesting coin that is presented to the audience en masse.

Chapter Uno | Going Back to the Beginning of a Problem

IN the sprawling suburbs of Houston, Texas many men and women enjoy the mild weather by riding down seemingly endless roads on two wheels. Due to the safety concerns of such fun freedoms this type of fun comes with some “does and do nots of staying upright as well as staying in one’s own lane. For those humans who roll around in “cages” as biker’s term “cars and trucks,” these rules of the road might seem a bit ruthless, extreme or un-necessary, yet in comparison with some other ancient religious traditions, military standards and customs, these rules are no different than many other religious tenants. There are Motorcycle Clubs that form to keep theses rules of the road in check for the enjoyment of the road for all, including making sure certain clubs do not wear certain patches that are not sanctioned and approved or behave in a manner that is negative towards the biker community on the whole.

Stolen Valor

These rules and regulations are often unknown to anyone who is not a biker, and if someone is a biker and does not respect these traditions, rules, protocols, and regulations it is seen as an ultimate disrespect to those who live by this code. Imagine a news reporter trying to pose as a biker in order to get a story on the “rules of the road,’ and this female reporter shows up wearing a black leather vest with the Sons of Anarchy logo on the back, and a red and white 1% diamond on her front pocket. This might seem harmless to the average e-bay shopper because it is simply available for purchase there. However it is no different than a homeless person putting on soldier’s uniform with a Ranger Tab, without having even ever served his country and lying to others about their service to this country.

red & white one %er patch for sale on ebay
Screen capture from ebay where different types of patches can be purchased. Usually the manufacturers of these patches are from China, and only US Made patches are issued by US MCs.

If it is not earned, it is to NOT be worn. Civilians get arrested for posing as a police person. There is a law against practicing medicine without a license, or selling insurance, or you name it, and without qualifications you get sued or jailed. In the world of two wheels, what you put on your bike, or vest, or chest matters the same. Unsanctioned patches are the same as posing as a cop, and there may be no written law, but the code of the road dictates consequences.

An unsanctioned patch can be one of the wrong color, shape, Trademarked Design as in stolen art, territories, unearned status as in rank, as well as other military like distinctions.

This news reporter would be seriously wrong to do such a thing as pose as something she is not, but if she did not know any “better”, she either:

  1. did not do proper due diligence for her story,
  2. did not understand the moral behind the principle,
  3. did not ask the correct folks for a better understanding behind the clothing, OR
  4. she wanted to instigate a known situation for a desired response for a story.

For the purposes of this illustration let us assume that this reporter knew that it was a bad idea to wear a logo from a T.V. show and the colors of one of the largest Motorcycle Clubs (M.C.) in the nation, and she showed up to a known hang out for this club in order to get a reaction.

The duty of this club’s Support Club – (a normally smaller group that acts as a support unit for the larger group, providing help in organizing events such as a charitable event, very much like a support unit in the military) – in this situation with the reporter they would notify the reporter that she would not be welcome to continue to wear that leather vest anywhere.

Now, it is up to the interpreter of this scenario to understand why she should not wear the described vest, but it is most likely because the red and white one percent patch does not belong on any garment except one club’s line of clothing, and they do NOT allow anyone else to wear it with out earning it. Depending on the location and situation, the organization that informs the reporter may not be very polite in this educational process. Let us assume that the reporter told this support club that this is “a free country and that she could wear whatever she wanted.”

For the sake of argument let us go back to this homeless person putting on the uniform of the soldier to gain sympathy, thus stealing the Valor properly earned by a soldier. The fact that around 70% of bikers are Veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States of America, the moral code that is all too similar to the reporters situation, will likely be dealt with in a similar fashion to the homeless person. It is no coincidence that bikers and Veterans both call those who are not them – civilians. Any civilian who insists on claiming that they are something that they are not, they are disrespectful at the least.

Now consider both the reporter and the homeless person insists that they have a right to freedom of speech to justify the wearing of these things that they did not properly earn. Who is correct in this predicament?

Does the person who earned the right to wear the Ranger tab have the right to correct the civilian whom is presumably in the wrong?

Now how about the biker whom feels completely disrespected by the reporter – even after educational information that the biker provided to the reporter was received, she still insists that because she bought the patch online she has the right to wear it and should not be removed from any public or private venue for wearing said garment?

There is such a thing in the United States of America as the Stolen Valor Act and the “Stolen Valor Act of 2013 – Amends the federal criminal code to rewrite provisions relating to fraudulent claims about military service to subject to a fine, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both an individual who, with intent to obtain money, property, or other tangible benefit, fraudulently holds himself or herself out to be a recipient of:

  • a Congressional Medal of Honor,
  • a Distinguished-Service Cross,
  • a Navy Cross,
  • an Air Force Cross,
  • a Silver Star,
  • a Purple Heart,
  • a Combat Infantryman’s Badge,
  • a Combat Action Badge,
  • a Combat Medical Badge,
  • a Combat Action Ribbon,
  • a Combat Action Medal, or
  • any replacement or duplicate medal for such medal as authorized by law.

So the homeless man may not be breaking any laws claiming to be a veteran and a former Army Ranger, however he is breaking an “unknown” code of claiming to be something he is not, which is upheld by those who actually did serve their country with that tab on their shoulder and etched into their hearts. They will call anyone out who is wearing this tab or uniform with a tab on it and seek out the truth, it is almost spiritual in existence. For bikers the need to call the police for such an infraction is non-existent, because they handle such issues themselves.

Ron Paul - Former Congressman with Do Not Steal - The Government hates competition sign on his desk.
The former congressman Ron Paul has a sign on his desk that states, “Do Not steal the government hates competition.”

This sentiment also applies to any civilian when it comes to the government which requires a civilian to be dependent on the government for such things like safety. Perhaps consider the following perception; there is a statute in some states that makes it a crime to NOT report a crime to the police.

Texas Penal Code § 38.171 Failure to Report Felony –

  • (a) A person commits an offense if the person:
  • (1) observes the commission of a felony under circumstances in which a reasonable person would believe that an offense had been committed in which serious bodily injury or death may have resulted;  and
  • (2) fails to immediately report the commission of the offense to a peace officer or law enforcement agency under circumstances in which:
  • (A) a reasonable person would believe that the commission of the offense had not been reported;  and
  • (B) the person could immediately report the commission of the offense without placing himself or herself in danger of suffering serious bodily injury or death.
  • (b) An offense under this section is a Class A misdemeanor.1

In certain cases it is a class A misdemeanor to NOT report a crime to “authorities,” and a civilian could be guilty of witnessing a crime and NOT reporting it to the “government authorities,” yet with all Federal Representatives, and some other select elected officials, all government agents – officers of the court – police officers, lawyers or judges, not only witness a crime, but commits a crime, these agents have immunity from punishment. This means that a government agent, who is paid a monthly wage and earns money towards their retirement with our tax dollars, can not only commit a crime, but witness one, and NOT be held to the same standards as “We the Civilians.”
This is called the Qualified Immunity Doctrine.

Qualified Immunity Doctrine – FBI website page on training in the law

Clearly Established Law

“While law enforcement officers recognize the inherent risks of their occupation, they should be comforted by the description given by the Supreme Court as to the effect of the qualified immunity doctrine on one of those inherent risks—that of being sued civilly. In Harlow v. Fitzgerald, the Court explained that “government officials performing discretionary functions generally are shielded from liability for civil damages insofar as their conduct does not violate clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known.” The plaintiff in Harlow, A. Ernest Fitzgerald, sued, among others, President Richard M. Nixon and one of his aides, Bryce Harlow, alleging that he was dismissed from his employment with the Air Force in violation of his First Amendment and other statutory rights.

The defendants sought immunity from the lawsuit. While ruling on the issue of immunity, the Supreme Court distinguished the president from his aide. First, the Court noted that its “decisions consistently have held that government officials are entitled to some form of immunity from suits for damages. As recognized at common law, public officers require this protection to shield them from undue interference with their duties and from potentially disabling threats of liability.” Justice Powell, writing for the Court, continued by recognizing that:
[o]ur decisions have recognized immunity defenses of two kinds. For officials whose special functions or constitutional status requires complete protection from suit, we have recognized the defense of “absolute immunity.” The absolute immunity of legislators, in their legislative functions, and of judges, in their judicial functions, now is well settled. Our decisions also have extended absolute immunity to certain officials of the Executive Branch. These include prosecutors and similar officials, executive officers engaged in adjudicative functions, and the President of the United States. For executive officials in general, however, our cases make plain that qualified immunity represents the norm. [W]e [have] acknowledged that high officials require greater protection than those with less complex discretionary responsibilities.

Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

Ecclesiastes 1:9 “what has been is what will be, and what will be done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.”

Matthew 23:1-4 “Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, ‘The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses seat, so do and observe whatever they tell you , but not the works that they do. For they preach but do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the peoples shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger.” – the Jesus

This type of situation is not new, to have lawyers making all of the rules, laws and regulations that govern our everyday existence.

Q: For whom does the government serve if not God?

Q: Does the government serve the people, or do the people serve the government?

A: The answer to “who does the Government serve?” is: the government in all forms serves money. As long as there is money to be made, that action will outweigh any other human right that might have once existed.

Funding of government(s) is now not only taxation of “income” of the citizenry but also the ever increasing “taxation through citation.”

Taxation is theft, especially when spending tax dollars on political agenda items rather than on the people who supplied the funds to begin with. Corporate greed has steeped our tea long enough.

Proverbs 24:24 “Whoever says to the wicked, ‘You are in the right,’ will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations.”

Luke 11:52 “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter your selves, and you hindered those who were entering.”

Matthew 23:13 “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.”

Did any of the above information answer the “How did we get here question?”

If so, then there is not even a need to mention the events of Waco, Texas on May the 17th, 2015.

However, since this research is specific about the events of Twin Peaks, and the beginning of this chapter mentioned Houston, Texas, let us create a quick nexus. Houston has a close suburb called Pasadena, Texas. One of the deceased was from Pasadena, Texas as was his family; his mother “Spike,” his Step-Father “Big O,” as well as Chain’s “Wife” who is still a proud “Devil Woman,” they all belonged to the Cossacks “MC.”

 'Chain' or Richard 'Richie' Matthew Jordan II, was a practicing Wiccan or as some have called it 'Satanist,' and his beliefs would show up in his prayers and preparations for the events of the humid Spring day in mid May. Photographed in Atwoods parking lot around 10:30am Sunday Morning May 17th, 2015. Image was posted by his mother on her facebook account.

The Cossacks met as a group around 10:30 am at the Atwoods store parking lot on the morning of May 17th, 2015. Some members from out of town bought ammunition, a long chain, and other useful items one would need on the way to peacefully join a C.o.C. & I. meeting later that day.

There only seem to have been a handful of females present on May 17th, 2015 at Twin Peaks. Why would the Cossacks not have their ole ladies with them on this special day? What was the intent?

The positioning of the Cossacks at Atwoods was a dual purpose, to greet Cossack riders from the North, as well as to intercept a local Motorcycle Club in case they happen to head towards Twin Peaks where they were to be setting up the local Confederation of Clubs & Independents meeting for later that day at 1pm.

Owen Reeves, Richard Jordan, and Jason Barnum all knew the plan,and they are not the only ones with knowledge of this plan. They are just close ridding buddies. Barnum told Nikki Stone what was going to go down, she was also a detective for Waco PD. Someone told their girl friend, Lt. Howell at the jail, what was going to go down. “Spider” told his crew, who made sure to tell Chip Hundley and Shawn Board what was going to go down, heck, they even trained up on it in down town Waco on May 14th 2015 near a school with reports of large explosions.

Flying J Truck stop is directly next to Waco Harley Davidson. Inside Flying J there is a Denny’s facing closest to the I-35 frontage road and these businesses share a parking lot area. Burger King is on the corner of the I-35 frontage road and the New Road intersection.

Chain pictured here as the Regional Sgt at Arms of the Cossacks in 2014, this picture taken at the Harley Davidson dealership in Waco, assuming his region is McLennan County, yet he was riding with a Nomad, his step-father (NOT PICTURED HERE), Big O, both from Pasadena, Texas.

This is almost a bottle neck location for access to Twin Peaks and the Central Texas Market Place, locals use this I-35 turn around coming from the south to get into Twin Peaks. North and South Traffic would bottle neck in front of the Flying J. Bikers also like to get gas before stops to eat, so they don’t have to after wards and can just get on their bikes and ride.

This particular day in May the Cossacks would be riding by Flying J gas station on their way into Twin Peaks. DPS would see the riders in their full numbers as they rode into the Marketplace parking area from I-35 frontage road.

The stories provided to the press by the Cossacks in the after math were that they were invited to this C.o.C.&I. event by a Nomad Bandido, this person denies the invitation. These stories were able to be used by those in custody, while those who got wounded and not arrested that day, all stated that they were shot by the few Bandits in the parking lot. It seems the Cossacks were there to peacefully respond to the invitation, heavily armed, and in large enough numbers to fill a patio and partial parking lot, but not to join in the meeting itself.

There was an incident at the bike night at Twin Peaks a few weeks prior to May 17th, 2015; where a local Cossack group riding motorcycles were supposedly “cut off” at a traffic intersection near the Flying J Truckstop on I-35, by the Los Pirados MC on their way to Twin Peaks. Los Pirados MC got there first and parked where the Cossacks wanted to park, or had reserved parking that no one knew about but themselves, what ever the case, Paul Miller the newly found President of the Hill County Cossacks was upset enough that he thought he deserved a phone call of apology later.

The respectful return phone call was informative. “Nationals were in the group of Cossacks that were riding in this pack bound for Twin Peaks, and felt disrespected by the turn of the group into the parking lot first.” Simple and respectful return of words. Problem solved, right?

What happened next was pretty much the straw that broke the camels back, because C.o.C.&I. Riders had been getting harassed (sometimes on video) by Cossacks in McLennan, Bell and other counties for almost 2 years. The cops usually did not get called except for the Lorena incident on March 22, 2015, but that was because that guy had to go to the Hospital or die, also because it happened on the side of the road way on a busy Highway – I-35 in stuck traffic.

Odd that cops did show up and follow C.o.C&I. riders away from these events where the Cossacks showed their class, or lack there of, so it had been obvious for some time that local law enforcement was not going to help the situation.

Around April 2015 at the “bike night,” the local Los Pirados MC Vice President “Slide” was approached by Owen Reeves – “Cossack Big O,” along with what some witnesses say, is Jason Barnum, a Waco Police Detective – “Cossack Duct Tape”, and three other Cossacks.

Big O stated to Slide and his riding companions that, “this was a Cossack town, and that they should go tell their boss, that no Big Fat Fucking Mexicans are welcome in Waco. Waco is a Cossack town, you hear?”

There was some other altercation type scuffling but nothing grown men could not handle themselves, especially in public. No police were called, however they were later found out to be involved, as well as watching (in) the parking lot, the parking situation, in addition to the patio area where Big O approached Slide.

Was the intent to instigate a response after the C.o.C.&I. had scheduled a political meeting at the local Cossacks favorite watering hole?

Who knew of the intent to instigate at the local Waco Police Department level, or McLennan County Sheriff’s Office, or Regional DPS level(s)? Was any known police officer, or undercover police, sheriffs department, DPS agent, DEA agent, Federal Law Enforcement agents EVER in any capicity to encourage ANY conflicts between the Cossacks and any other C.o.C.&I. members?

The accusations have been present since this incident took place that there was a biker with a Cossack cut on, whom also took the cut off and dawned a face mask and badge at Twin Peaks Massacre on May 17th, 2015. This information makes it hard to believe that any group with that many law enforcement connections would loose so many riders.

Why did so many Cossacks show up, heavily armed and occupy every seat on the reserved patio, take up every parking spot reserved for the event, and assault the only lady present who was setting up the space?

Why would law enforcement watch the Cossacks assault Los Pirados MC Vice President’s wife, “Drama” as she told the approaching Cossacks that the parking spaces were reserved for C.o.C.&I. Members?

Why would WPD SWAT watch the Cossacks run over her foot with their bike, surround her and call her a cunt, bitch, and spit in her face whilst shoving her out of their way to park?

Why would the story later be that a Cossack got his foot ran over when that Cossack admitted it did not?

Who wrote this narrative change for Public Information Officer of the Waco Police Department Patrick J. Swanton?

In all of the Cossack versions of the story of why they were there, they were sure of one thing, the C.o.C.&I. was a front for the Bandidos and all the clubs under them paid them dues. There was nothing said about territory, or drugs, it was dues.

About a year after the Twin Peaks Ambush the author was contacted by Paul Miller.  The conversation turned into the asking of this question. “How much money would your clubs be responsible for if they did pay dues?” Our calculations totaled $90,000.00 in dues a year at their monthly quoted rate from the news. This was a monthly due amount of $150 per chapter at 50 chapters. (5 member minimum per chapter)

The actual dues would be: $7,500.00 per year or $30.00 per person per YEAR. It cost each of these riders more than the yearly dues just to sit, eat and drink in protest at Twin Peaks. It cost some riders their lives in protest to a false statement to begin with.

When both Mr. Miller and Mrs. Reeves asked where that money would go to, the response was, “$7,500 would go to pay for law enforcement for security and parking at the next State rally in Austin.” Neither one had much positive to say after those words. Mrs. Reeves mentioned that “her brother had done time for the Bandits down in Houston, and what ever they were doing was no good.” She also opined that “Pasadena had been over ran with mexicans and that is why they moved here….” 

For the average reader all of this club stuff may be confusing, so let us conclude these thoughts above and try and define one more thing: The term 1%, as in context to the motorcycle community.

Social Media Meme depicting the apathy of the majority of tax paying citizens.
Social Media Meme depicting the apathy of the majority of tax paying citizens.


The one percent definition rarely has a positive connotation, however these bikers that call themselves ONE percenters, they represent the MOST positive aspect of this characterization. The 1% depicted above in this meme are the worlds ruling elite, the families that control the courts and the officers there of, the banks, the health care, the agriculture, the oil, the guns, the ammo, the water, your life in general is supporting and answering to these families above.

Biker 1% ers are not a part of the 98% that do not care, they are the 1% that DO CARE. Not only do they care, but they are awake and concerned to the trouble that this country is in, as well as our local communities. Biker 1%ers are trying to stop the mayhem that they have been accused of inflicting for so many years with false accusations from a run-a-way police state government. Unlike the depiction above, the average biker is a peaceful protestor and would not start a riot over the loss of a sporting event or any event.

The founders of almost every 1% MC chapter that are still rolling today were Veterans. For the last 60 years bikers have been the brunt of police brutality, constant Federal instigation and numerous botched stings that landed the Feds empty handed.

Twin Peaks Massacre was no different. The C.o.C. & I. had sponsored a few bills in Austin Texas in 2015 that related to Motorcycle Safety and Second Amendment issues. The Legislative Strike Force for the C.o.C.&I. was to update Texas riders from all regions of Texas in Waco on May 17th, 2015 at the Twin Peaks Restaurant at 1pm.

A bit of History on the C.o.C.&I. As the Confederation of Clubs (Motorcycle Clubs) and Independents, the two had never been joined in a formal fashion until Texas. MC’s and Independent riders do not usually meet together to discuss politics, club or otherwise. Texas is special, and with the C.o.C. as a model from other states, it only made sense to keep the independent clubs included when trying to form a solid front for political strength after TMRA II closed down with the passing of Sputnik, the famous tattooed biker bill reader. Having talked with former TMRA / II leadership, it was obvious that the entire community of motorcycle enthusiasts have had a hard time staying united as a group due to club politics, egos and over all lack of leadership that was politics concentric.

After Sputnik, the need to form a coalition of like minded clubs in Texas was necessary, but since there was only one MC in Texas that was a 1% club with a dominant position of riders, the position of Facilitator and Security for such an organization automatically fell on the “Folks that your Mothers warn you about.” An ironic twist of fate to see the new style club of Bandidos with a 21st Century mode of operation in the role of Political Rights Advocates.

The Bandidos of the 70’s had cleaned up their ranks, gas tanks and learned valuable lessons from their past members actions. Guilt falls up hill and to keep allowing the actions of a few members to tarnish the entire club name was no longer tolerable. With that cleaning of house, a new found responsibility of “master of ceremonies” for a needed political organization was placed on the new crew. This might help the Texas Chapter show the National Chapters that the International Chapters would have to take on this new found role with them. That did not work out so well for the International chapters who had several internal conflicts that ensured that participating in politics as a club would never be in the bylaws.

MC’s are the folks that you call when you do not want to call the police. B.A.C.A. Or Bikers Against Child Abuse is a great example. The police will not enforce Civil Family Law in most cases and parents are left worrying about their children’s safety. BACA gets a call and they take it more serious than the police.

Local neighborhood bully keeps harassing your sister, and you need back up, you find a biker with a bottom rocker and you ask for help.

This is where the police have a problem with the MC world. When you do not call the police for help, they will find a way to punish you for some reason.

Since the C.o.C.&I. was formed and the Bandidos were a part of the infrastructure, the Department of Justice had the Texas Department of Safety create a task force through CID. The goal was to infiltrate and dismantle the first political organization in Texas to successfully lobby, create legislation, and….. just before they got the money appropriated from congress for motorcycle safety, they were shot down in a parking lot in broad daylight by the very same task force created to monitor them.

The story that was sold to the public was that the Bandidos were fighting Cossacks over their use of the Texas bottom rocker patch, when in truth it was because the Cossacks did not care about politics, MC protocols or traditions, and the leadership of the Cossacks had zero clue to the reality of what the C.o.C.&I. are all about or the importance of Motorcycle Safety and Legislation behind it.

The powers that be in the DEA, FBI, and ATF needed that little bit of lack of education to be dominant in the focal points of conversation in their push to lead the Cossacks towards a road of hatred for the Bandidos. It was easy with some help turning brothers against the big bad bandits of the south.

  • Smith County Texas had their ATF raid on a Cossack Sargent at Arms in 2015.
  • Chip Hundley the Mexia Detective/ DEA agent arrested one Cossack for drugs in Bellmead in 2014,
  • as well as a former Bandido, after planting drugs on him and setting up his family to turn on him in 2014.

One can only assume which one cooperated with Law Enforcement in that scenario. It would also make sense that the WPD detective Jason Barnum was surely writing weekly reports that were disseminated up to CID. It would be safe to assume that there were at least 3 agencies writing reports about the actions of the Cossacks.

After the above formula was in place, it was a matter of making sure that the Cossacks know that the C.o.C.&I. were a front for the Bandidos and the rest could almost finish itself. However Bell, Limestone, Ellis and Hill counties had some serious infiltration from members who had also run into Iron Circle rider Richard Hundley, the DEA agent who worked in those counties with a DEA task force. His job was to rope in the Bandidos by any means necessary.

Now would be a good time to start putting faces to names as far as Law Enforcement is concerned since their names will be the focus of the research for the majority of this writing.

About the Author

“Not A. Lawyer” is a pen name used for the authoring of “Criminal Justice” books written by Texas native Gregory “Lee” West. (I prefer the name “Lee West” as it is not the same name as my biological father “Gregory” nor that persons birth sir-name of Rinehart, which is an adopted name. Gregory Lee Rinehart was my birth name, and in 2004 before I re-married, I changed my last name to West, which is my mother’s maiden name. Since there were no males born to my grandfather Red West, the only way to carry on that name would be through me and my two youngest children.)

There are 4 total books that Lee has written while incarcerated in Texas, with the first one being a 3 part series entitled, “The Wurst Little Courthouse in Texas.” None have been published to date.

These sets of novels were hand written while in Comal County Jail for his first arrest (of 7.5 ounces of “marijuana” otherwise known as cannabis sativa) and the 10 month stay that resulted in a plea bargain for 10 months time served for the possession of cannabis, and 2 years State Penitentiary for a failure to appear in court on said charge.

Comal County Texas - mugshot Lee West
Gregory Lee West – Comal County Arrest March 2009

The initial arrest happened at 8:30am on 8/8/2008 on River Road coming from Canyon Lake, towards New Braunfels. Unknown to Mr. West he did have a “glass container on the river citation” from 2006 that did not get properly taken care of, and that led to a warrant. At the time of the stop in August of 2008, Mr. West did have a warrant for a $65.00 littering citation which was considered a “failure to appear” as well.

The routine traffic stop led to an arrest of Gregory Lee West for failure to appear in court for a glass container of the river ticket. During the search of the vehicle, called an inventory search for towing property, a sheriffs officer found a bag of cannabis under a pocket copy of the United States Constitution. The Constitution was not listed in the vehicles inventory, yet the few children’s books were.

Lee West was in jail for the first time for a felony drug possession charge, and was told that he qualified for the “Drug Court” that was offered by the Justice of the Peace upon arraignment. He spent 8 days in jail trying to raise bond money. Comal County only allows certain Bond Companies to hold a bond for the county arrests, and most required a home owner to sign. From August to November 1, 2008 Mr. West called into the New Braunfels Bail Bond company every Tuesday morning to check in as was required for bond.

There was a court hearing on the last Thursday of October 2008, but New Braunfels Bail Bonds did not notify their client of a court date.

It was at this court date that the county decided to call Mr. West’s name and he was not present, thus issuing a bench warrant for his arrest, and forfeiting his previous bond, which took his family a 8 days to raise in the first place (Original bond of 15,000).

Mr. West was in communication with the bond company during the next four months, and their only legal advice was to hire an attorney and turn himself in. There was no resources in which to hire an attorney. During the time that Mr. West had been arrested and posted bond, the West family was left homeless and without any way to support their two children. Mr. West made a horrible mistake to moving to another corrupt county in East Texas to be closer to people who claimed to be his family.

The West’s found a home to reside in Jacksonville, Texas and his wife took a job at a local cantina to make ends meet. Lee had never been able to afford proper medical care since his leaving the Army, and had not been able to do manual labor for about a year prior to this period due to severe pain in his neck and right shoulder radiating down his back. He was quickly learning web development and coding so that he could possibly earn an income for his family when this traffic stop turned into a life changing arrest.

On a Saturday night at around 10:30pm Mr. West was pulled over for speeding in Cherokee County Texas. February 18th, 2009 was the last day of freedom or having a family for Lee, as he would spend the next 352 days in a concrete and steel cage called the “Justice System” in one of three jurisdictions, and the next 9 years fighting to restore his family from what the state sought to tear apart.

It was while in Cherokee County Jail the Mr. West met an infamous evangelical man named Robert Fox, who headed a local “church” called the House of Israel. It was at church for inmates where Lee asked Mr. Fox about his charges, and the response he received was the description of how the S.W.A.T. team from Jacksonville Police Department raided Fox’s church directly across the street from the Fire Department. Mr. Fox recommended that Mr. West spend as much time in the law library as possible and ask for “due process service proof” for the notification of the court date that was missed in Comal County in October of 2008. Information greatly appreciated by a first time inmate. Little did Mr. West know that the recommendation for finding said information would make Mr. West an enemy of the state. The second Monday in March, Mr. West was transferred to Comal County, Texas for two felony counts, one possession of marihuana and one failure to appear on that charge.

The district attorney for Comal county, Sammy McCrarry, is known for public corruption and detaining Mexican Nationals in his jail for funds, without properly notifying D.P.S. or I.C.E. of their arrests. Some of the inmates were in state custody for over 365 days without going to court. The county jail staff work with the District Attorney to find defendants guilty of charges while in custody and do NOT provide private facilities for attorney client meetings. All conferences are held on a recorded video phone network and shared with the District Attorney’s office.

Mr. West shared a court appointed attorney with one of the Mexican Nationals while in Comal County custody. 80% of the court appointed attorneys were from San Antonio’s Bexar County for district court felonies. Since the majority of the cases from any district court are usually a plea bargained conviction, it is a “wait it out in jail” scenario for 90% of those faced with felonies. Johnny Frausto was one of the many attorneys who was on state bar probation or some form of court sanctions for past actions. Frausto was complaining of cancer illnesses, in 2009, when speaking to Mr. West’s former wife who was helping her husband communicate from jail to this ghost of an attorney.

John Charles “Johnny” Frausto passed away whilst Mr. West was in custody on August 19, 2013 from cancer. There was no notice given to his clients in jail.

For weeks Mr. West was trying to find out from the court what had happened with his bond, and why his bail was revoked without Due Process. No court properly served notice to Mr. West, nor his bond company (according to New Braunfels Bail Bonds) of an October 2008 court date. When there was no contact or return calls from Mr. Frausto, the West family became more concerned with the series of events, and it was 60 days before another counsel was assigned. Mr. David L. Nigh who had the goal of plea bargaining Mr. West’s case from 10 years to 5 years TDCJ. He also threatened Mr. West with loosing custody of his children because Mr. West’s ex-wife had to get on food stamps while he was incarcerated and the “State of Texas was going to get their money one way or the other from you.”

This was the last straw for Mr. West’s faith in any attorney, and required the State to uphold his right for self representation. In October of 2009, after 287 days in Comal County Jail, Mr. West was brought to court, without any legal documents, as they were confiscated by jail staff upon leaving his dorm, and while waiting alone in a holding cell. Once before State Judge Robinson, Mr. West again plead NOT GUILTY and requested a jury trial. The judge recommended speaking with the D.A. one on one first.

In the private, unconstitutional, meeting where Mr. West told Sammy McRarry that he had lost everything he had, including his new family, that he has simply been asking for a jury trial to show his medical necessity and declare his First Amendment Right to possess a plant that God put on this earth. It was then that Mr. McRarry informed Lee that it would be another year in jail before he was able to be heard on that matter, and asked Mr. West if he had another year to wait to be heard. McRarry then noted he needed to talk to the judge about what he could offer. Mr. West instructed the D.A. to offer “time served” on the possession of marihana and drop it to misdemeanor, and drop the failure to appear charge since Mr. West had evidence back at the jail (that was taken before court) that he had made calls to the bond company and needed to show the jury that information.

D.A. McRarry went and spoke to the judge, and Mr. West was brought some Burger King hamburgers. When Sammy returned, he showed Mr. West two conviction papers, both felonies and stated “that since he was not a misdemeanor attorney, then he could not authorize a reduction in the charges.” Time served of 10 months for the possession of cannabis, and 2 years (minimum requirement) on the Third Degree felony of Bond Jumping, failing to appear, and that “you can go home on parole in a matter of days.”

Lee West’s first mistake was taking the first offer that was presented on paper. Had Lee waited a few more days, he would have qualified for a bond reduction, however, when one represents them selves in court, they are required to know the rules and procedures of said courts to a certain extent. Not knowing that the several Writs for Speedy Trial would have been held up, and the delays for the state seen as just that, delays, Mr. West would have likely won a jury trial in his defense based on the contempt shown by the District Attorneys office in delaying the trial, and obstructing justice in allowing Mr. West proper access to the courts.

Despite not know anything else better to do, Mr. West signed the two Felony charges in order to get home to his wife and kids. On October 26th, 2009; conviction papers were signed and filed with the state in the case of the State of Texas vs. Gregory Lee West. December 23rd, 2009 Mr. West caught chain to TDCJ and the intake Holiday unit, where he spent the holidays. January 22nd 2010 Mr. West left the Walls unit on parole until February 2011.

Mrs. West was in Huntsville to pick up her husband on that cold January day. It was then that Lee learned what had been taking place in his home while he was gone all those days. Since that situation is still being described in the West divorce case in Cherokee County to date, the events will be left out of this description, except for logic. Mrs. West was doing her best to try and bring home her husband, and had never reported or claimed any problems with Mr. West. It was not until she admitted to cheating several times on Mr. West with several other men, did she have issues with Mr. West. And it was Mrs. West that called the parole officer in September of 2010 to notify parole that Mr. West was using cannabis to treat his chronic pain.

In December of 2010, Mr. West had a parole hearing, where Mrs. West was asleep in the lobby of the Sheriffs office due to taking too many muscle relaxers for her nerves. This hearing found Mr. West had violated his parole by using cannabis and remanded him back to custody where he spent the remainder of his time in Henderson Texas at a S.A.F.E.P. facility for “rehab.”

On February 14th, 2011, while in TDCJ custody, Mr. West was issued divorce papers citing a protective order that was from Anderson County Texas. Texas law does not require any probable cause to file a family violence protective order against a party. Mrs. West was instructed to leave the county of the complaint and take it to a neighboring jurisdiction by the Jacksonville Crisis Center, “so that the vacation can not be worked due to a lack of jurisdiction” (laymen terms for they can issue a protective order in another county that can not be challenged by the defending party). The order had been issued on February 1st, 2011, and the court date for a hearing was the date of service.

On February 20th, 2011 Mr. West left TCDJ having served his time on his charges and rode a bus from Henderson Texas to Jacksonville. There he found his meager possessions in a storage unit packed by his soon to be ex-wife, and the man who paid for it all, his mothers husband, with some advice, “leave town.” While visiting a friend in Jacksonville on the day of his release, Mr. West learned that his wife had moved in a drug dealer who was selling pills and cocaine from the West home on Bryan street. The West children would corroborate this story over the next 7 years, as well as positive drug screenings and recorded audio with the children’s confessions.

None of the evidence to defend Mr. West from the false allegations of his adulterous former spouse would sway the court. The court had been bribed to find favor with the accuser so that any attempt for Mr. West to challenge the jurisdiction of the protective order, or show evidence of abuse against the West children would not be allowed into evidence. In April of 2013 Mr. West filed a formal grievance against the divorce court judge one Craig Fletcher for cussing at Mr. West in 2011 and not allowing evidence into court since then.

When Fletcher learned of the grievance from Steven Raid Guy, (Mrs. West’s attorney and JPD and Cherokee Counties attorney of record) Fletcher held court and found Mr. West in contempt of court and sentenced him to 180 days in jail. On June 10th, 2013 Mr. West presented a check for the remaining $380 of child support monies that he owed, but the check was denied in court because it was not made out to Steven Raid Guy. The cost of the drug test that was positive by Richard Kincade cost Mr. West $375.00 and the drug test was the reason why Mr. West was not current on support.

Steven Guy drafted a document that included $6,500.00 in attorneys fees added to the back child support amount and signed the document himself and filed it in the divorce case. Mr. West spent 177 days in 2013, placed in solitary confinement in Cherokee County Jail with NO order signed by a judge placing him there or charging him with any crime reported to DPS.

Mr. West filed several Writs of Habeas Corups (link to pdf) to which the Cherokee County District Clerk did not file until the Texas Supreme Court issued a response to the receipt of their copy. Mr. West mailed a copy of a Writ of Habeas to Janet Gates on July 6th, 2013 yet she waited past the mandatory 10 maximum file date until July 24th 2013 to actually time stamp the Writ. The higher courts remanded the case, and then eventually picked it back up citing Mr. West’s inability to provide court records that are not available, to someone in jail or out.

What does any of that have to do with Twin Peaks on May 17th, 2015?

Having been a victim of malicious prosecution, Mr. West noticed that the mass arrest of 192 individuals who met at a political meeting in the town in which Lee resided, was all to similar to the Robert Fox raid, and subsequent cover up. Lee was careful to inform the “responsible parties” involved in the Twin Peaks aftermath, of his prior history with corruption and the negative words that existed used by attorneys to defame Mr. West’s character. It was pointed out that all of the accusations that had been made against Lee West were never presented with facts or proof and written by an attorney for the state, or by the ex-wife herself, in order to keep custody of the West children.

In June of 2015 several people were online on the All for 1 facebook page commenting on the tragedy, and Mr. West offered some of the families information on how to file grievances with the Texas Commission of Jail Standards for defendants who were not allowed medications in the Jack Harwell Detention Center. It was during this advice that Mr. West discovered some unsavory information that the jail was not owned by the county of McLennan, but rather an LLC that could not be sued for libel for their actions.

Lee West was in Tyler Texas on May 17th, 2015 and just so happened to be having a last beer with some friends before a 30 day trip to the Del Mar Neurocenter for Magnetic Resonance Therapy for Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injuries. The bar happened to be owned by motorcycle enthusiasts who welcomed one of the clubs involved in the Twin Peaks tragedy and cell phones began to alert rapidly, and faces became pale with concern. The television was already on and the tragedy was unfolding before the nation as dictated by Main Stream Media. One man commented that it was not supposed to go that way at all, and he left on his bike. Mr. West did not pay that much attention to that comment until months later.

During the after math of the Twin Peaks ambush, social networks buzzed with concern, conspiracy theories and out right lies concerning the events of that fateful day. A facebook page was made by a fireman to add family members of the tragedy to, so that an alternative to All for 1 could be managed by non-biker members, who were trying to compile information on the event. The grouped titled American Bikers Community Rights or ABCR was formed and Mr. West requested membership. It was a matter of days before Mr. West was asked to help administrate the page along with the addition of members. In the early days of ABCR it was a predominately Yellow and Black page as the message of an ambush laid by Law Enforcement and the encroaching riders from the north was a common theme.

After several months of online sluething and posting of information, Mr. West was asked to build a web page to archive the ABCR group to, in case facebook shut down the page. The information would still be available for the family members. Mr. West agreed and started a now defunct abcr.info web page. The information would include information found in the closed chat group thread where several of the victims of the tragedy would share accounts of the incident. That web site was attacked on October 23rd, 2016 with a D.o.S. and the page was lost to the public, after an article was published involving Steve Cook from the IOMGIA and Steve Woosnam for their participation in the training of Waco Police Department and the McLennan County Sheriffs office in April of 2015.

Since authoring this information for the victims of the tragedy of Twin Peaks, Mr. West has received several false allegations from “bikers” who claimed that Lee had not been honest with those involved and cited information from court cases in other counties as proof of the allegations. One “journalist” who would later become a states witness for the prosecution had written several pages of “findings” that alluded to Mr. West’s former last name being different than it is now as proof that Mr. West was not who he claimed to be. Despite that same “journalist” using the last name of White, which was nothing more than the color of her husbands motorcycle. All of the allegations and false claims had already been revealed to those who were in the closed room, and private thread.

When the information that a person reveals about themselves to remove doubt, is used to include doubt later, it is obvious of the intentions of the users of that information. An Undercover Department of Homeland Security agent posing as a protestor, who also dated a member of the defense team’s counsel welcomed any negative opinion about Mr. West, and had a direct hand in trying to levy misinformation against Mr. West to discredit his character, only after Mr. West would not conform to their narrative needed for court hearings. In April of 2016, Mr. West was arrested in McLennan County on a warrant on a Smith County charge of DWI. Mr. West had already served his time on this matter, yet the Smith County court would not allow the time served into evidence due to the Unconstitutional nature of the confinement without a signed order. During this incarceration Mr. West was removed as the administrator for ABCR and the false allegations against him were allowed to permeate the message from the group.

The authoring of Texas: One Nation Under Arrest is in response to that groups efforts to misinform the masses.

In 2015 we lost 236 unarmed Americans out of a total of 1,146 to Law Enforcement violence. (The Guardians: The Counted) This is a domestic problem which earns a tax payer funded paycheck, as well as union lawyer protection ensuring that the qualified immunity doctrine is applied in case of libelous actions.

Some of these coups have been the bloodiest takeovers in world history, and in other cases the usurpation has been as silent and as subtle as a thief in the night.

Regardless of the how, the why has always been a corporate investment to continue the machines of war, or the Military Industrial Complex. Since humans have been writing things on cave walls, hunting, death, power and control have been our evolutionary predisposition.

These words are usually descriptors to illustrate the “How” of a story.

  • How did we get here, to this moment in time, living in a court system run world?
  • Where are we going in this human race?
  • How will we know when we get there?
  • Does this race have A single winner?
  • What does it mean to “win” at all costs?
  • Can we make it alone?
  • Are we loyal to our team, if there is such a thing?
  • Who says who is on what team, and who keeps up with the teams?
  • Is there a finish line that we know of?
  • Is the ancient text that Moses started and John of Patmos finished, going to be how all of this plays out?
  • Are there any other options?

These questions have been rendered in many forms throughout the eons of orbiting that big orange ball. The answers to these and many more perplexing issues may not be suited for this book of answers to other questions, yet those things mentioned a fore will play a vital role in understanding one of the most complex public shootings in Texas History.

Believe it or not, but the CNN coined title of the “The Texas Shootout” is an actual Love story on almost every level. The Love of the open road, the Love born of a bond that comes from a brotherhood that many claim is stronger than gravity itself, and a Love of which cannot be stopped by the forces of evil. There is Honor with Love. There is Respect with Honor. There is Loyalty with Respect. There is Family with Loyalty.

Texas: One Nation Under Arrest

What does ownership mean to you?

Definition of ownership according to Merriam-Webster
1): the state, relation, or fact of being an owner

2): a group or organization of owners
First Known Use: 1583

Who owns your body?
When one finds them selves listed on a piece of paper titled:

The State of Texas Vs (Your Name Here)

One will quickly learn that Texas is a Corporation (The State of Texas) that has a vast amount of resources to spend on the court cases against the non-state entity, and the new owners will spend it all to prove their ownership of the citizen. An ironic ideal that one must pay taxes to an entity that can and will use that income against the person who paid it initially in the form of taxes, and prosecute, and arrest someone for NOT paying said taxes.

If one thinks that they own their property, a car, land, or business, then do NOT pay taxes to the county or state, as they require, and see how long it takes for the real owners to show up and educate the “owner” on their lack of payment for the use of said property.

How many rules, regulations, statutes, laws or codes does Texas have that the citizenry are responsible in following and knowing, and how many Federal laws are there that supersede state laws?

There has not been a definite number acquired in answering this question. The official answer is that “they” DO NOT KNOW!

library of congress how many federal laws 2013
library of congress how many federal laws 2013

If you think the answer to this question can be found in the volumes of the Statutes at Large, you are partially correct. The Statutes at Large is a compendium that includes all the federal laws passed by the U.S. Congress. However, a total count of laws passed does not account for the fact that some laws are completely new; some are passed to amend existing laws; and others completely repeal old laws. Moreover, this set does not include any case law or regulatory provisions that have the force of law.

In a conversation about this topic, a friend asked me, “What about the United States Code?” The current Code has 51 titles in multiple volumes. It would be very time consuming to go page by page to count each federal law, and it also does not include case law or regulatory provisions.

While we are on the topic, would you like to know the difference between the United States Code and the Statutes at Large? According to the Government Printing Office, “the Statutes at Large, is the permanent collection of all laws and resolutions enacted during each session of Congress.” The laws are arranged by public law number and are published in the Statutes at Large. The set also includes concurrent resolutions, proclamations, proposed and ratified amendments to the Constitution, and reorganization plans. Until 1948, treaties and international agreements approved by the Senate were also published in the Statutes at Large. This set is organized by year. So, if you are interested in locating the laws of passed in 1996 you need to consult the volumes for that year.

As for the United States Code, the Government Printing Office explains that “the United States Code is the codification by subject matter of the general and permanent laws of the United States. It is divided by broad subjects into 51 titles and published by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives.” It is clear that the United States Code is a compilation of laws arranged by subject. However, similar to the Statutes at Large,  it does not include case law or regulatory provisions. – Library of Congress article from 2013

Imagine having so much freedom, that you can not even count how free your are NOT!

If our own lawmakers do NOT know how many current laws there are on a Federal level, then it would be no surprise that the answer is the same for the state, county, and municipal levels.

Ask any judge this question: “How many laws are there, local on up to federal?” When they fail to give an exact number, ask them then, “how as an officer of this court, do you intend to practice a craft in which there is an infinite amount of ways in which to make one a criminal, yet the court is not able to cite a source as to the number of said laws.” Where is the Justice in this system, the only thing it seems to be is a system in which to convict, infinitely.

Texas residents are in a literal conviction system which leads to the fact that Texas: One Nation Under Arrest is not just applicable for Motorcycle Clubs, it applies to us all.

Wikipedia offers some insight into the theory of state ownership:

A plaque marking state property in Riga, Latvia

State ownership, also called government ownership and public ownership, is the ownership of an industry, asset, or enterprise by the state or a public body representing a community as opposed to an individual or private party.[1] Public ownership specifically refers to industries selling goods and services to consumers and differs from public goods and government services financed out of a government's general budget.[2] Public ownership can take place at the national, regional, local, or municipal levels of government; or can refer to non-governmental public ownership vested in autonomous public enterprises. Public ownership is one of the three major forms of property ownership, differentiated from private, collective/cooperative, and common ownership.[3]

In market-based economies, state-owned assets are often managed and operated as joint-stock corporations with a government owning all or a controlling stake of the company's shares. This form is often referred to as a state-owned enterprise. A state-owned enterprise might variously operate as a not-for-profit corporation, as it may not be required to generate a profit; as a commercial enterprise in competitive sectors; or as a natural monopoly. Governments may also use the profitable entities they own to support the general budget. The creation of a state-owned enterprise from other forms of public property is called corporatization.

In Soviet-type economies, state property was the dominant form of industry as property. The state held a monopoly on land and natural resources, and enterprises operated under the legal framework of a nominally planned economy, and thus according to different criteria than enterprises in market and mixed economies.

Nationalization is a process of transferring private or municipal assets to a central government or state entity. Municipalization is the process of transferring private or state assets to a municipal government.

State-owned enterprise

A state-owned enterprise is a commercial enterprise owned by a government entity in a capitalist market or mixed economy. Reasons for state ownership of commercial enterprises are that the enterprise in question is a natural monopoly or because the government is promoting economic development and industrialization. State-owned enterprises may or may not be expected to operate in a broadly commercial manner and may or may not have monopolies in their areas of activity. The transformation of public entities and government agencies into government-owned corporations is sometimes a precursor to privatization.

State capitalist economies are capitalist market economies that have high degrees of government-owned businesses.

Relation to socialism

Public ownership of the means of production is a subset of social ownership, which is the defining characteristic of a socialist economy. However, state ownership and nationalization by themselves are not socialist, as they can exist under a wide variety of different political and economic systems for a variety of different reasons. State ownership by itself does not imply social ownership where income rights belong to society as a whole. As such, state ownership is only one possible expression of public ownership, which itself is one variation of the broader concept of social ownership.[4][5]

In the context of socialism, public ownership implies that the surplus product generated by publicly owned assets accrues to all of society in the form of a social dividend, as opposed to a distinct class of private capital owners. There is a wide variety of organizational forms for state-run industry, ranging from specialized technocratic management to direct workers' self-management. In traditional conceptions of non-market socialism, public ownership is a tool to consolidate the means of production as a precursor to the establishment of economic planning for the allocation of resources between organizations, as required by government or by the state.

State ownership is advocated as a form of social ownership for practical concerns, with the state being seen as the obvious candidate for owning and operating the means of production. Proponents assume that the state, as the representative of the public interest, would manage resources and production for the benefit of the public.[6] As a form of social ownership, state ownership may be contrasted with cooperatives and common ownership. Socialist theories and political ideologies that favor state ownership of the means of production may be labelled state socialism.

State ownership was recognized by Friedrich Engels in Socialism: Utopian and Scientific as, by itself, not doing away with capitalism, including the process of capital accumulation and structure of wage labor. Engels argued that state ownership of commercial industry would represent the final stage of capitalism, consisting of ownership and management of large-scale production and manufacture by the state.[7]

Within the United Kingdom, public ownership is mostly associated with the Labour Party (a centre-left democratic socialist party), specifically due to the creation of Clause IV of the "Labour Party Manifesto" in 1918. "Clause IV" was written by Fabian Society member Sidney Webb.

User rights

A plaque marking state property in Jūrmala

When ownership of a resource is vested in the state, or any branch of the state such as a local authority, individual use "rights" are based on the state's management policies, though these rights are not property rights as they are not transmissible. For example, if a family is allocated an apartment that is state owned, it will have been granted a tenancy of the apartment, which may be lifelong or inheritable, but the management and control rights are held by various government departments.[8]

Public property

There is a distinction to be made between state ownership and public property. The former may refer to assets operated by a specific state institution or branch of government, used exclusively by that branch, such as a research laboratory. The latter refers to assets and resources that are available to the entire public for use, such as a public park (see public space).

Criticism

In neoclassical economic theory, the desirability of state ownership has been studied using contract theory. According to the property rights approach based on incomplete contracting (developed by Oliver Hart and his co-authors), ownership matters because it determines what happens in contingencies that were not considered in prevailing contracts.[9]

The work by Hart, Shleifer and Vishny (1997) is the leading application of the property rights approach to the question whether state ownership or private ownership is desirable.[10] In their model, the government and a private firm can invest to improve the quality of a public good and to reduce its production costs. It turns out that private ownership results in strong incentives to reduce costs, but it may also lead to poor quality. Hence, depending on the available investment technologies, there are situations in which state ownership is better. The Hart-Shleifer-Vishny theory has been extended in many directions. For instance, some authors have also considered mixed forms of private ownership and state ownership.[11] Moreover, the Hart-Shleifer-Vishny model assumes that the private party derives no utility from provision of the public good. Besley and Ghatak (2001) have shown that if the private party (a non-governmental organization) cares about the public good, then the party with the larger valuation of the public good should always be the owner, regardless of the parties' investment technologies.[12]

More recently, some authors have shown that the investment technology also matters in the Besley-Ghatak framework if an investing party is indispensable[13] or if there are bargaining frictions between the government and the private party.[14]
