Ruling in Jeff’s Case
We got a ruling! But we don’t like it. The judge denied the motion on the grounds that the case Gonzales v Raich applies to Jeff’s motion to dismiss.
My friend Bill was not surprised. His response was that after all these years studying the governments actions, we know they are corrupt. I remember 10 years ago when we were waiting for a response in a case, can’t remember which one, but Bill’s response to that one, when it came was, “OBFUSCATION!”
So, understanding that the government will lie and hold on to any shred of power they can conjure, Jeff saw that if they are going to take jurisdiction when they don’t have it and obfuscate, twist, and deceive, he opted for a deal that will settle the matter completely.
When he was cutting the deal in front of the judge, the prosecuting attorney said he didn’t want Jeff to be able to appeal the judges ruling on the motion. After Jeff asked him if he was going to deny him the right to “due process” he balked and said no, but that he was going to have to spend a week writing the brief to oppose the appeal. (wa, wa, that’s short for wining.) Jeff said if I can’t appeal, the deal is off. Then the judge began to say that she was the one who could decide if the deal was fair or not and Jeff cut her off and said that all parties had agreed and if she wasn’t going to agree, then the deal was off. She said she would agree. Jeff took 45 days in jail to end the almost 6 year battle. He’s already served two years in federal prison.
It wasn’t surprising that the judge let Jeff appeal, I mean, is she really going to go against the federal mafia? Also, I think only the upper courts have the guts to rule on an issue like this or have the knowledge of how the system is supposed to work. Her reasons, which basically were based on the Raich case, failed to show how Raich applied to Jeff’s case. She only made a bunch of presumptions and assumptions. In fact, in her order denying the motion, she said Jeff failed to show how the Raich case did not apply to his case. I guess the appeal will have to decide if the Raich case applies in Jeff’s case or not…
