Last night my draw dropped as Rachel Maddow gave me the answer as to why Rena filed stalking charges on me. The night before Deputy Sheriff, Dan Mayland, called me on the phone from Galliten County Montana, I had a dream. I came into Rena’s house and she started scolding me in a half-ass manner. He heart wasn’t into it. A strange woman joins in, and I look in the living room I see about four dudes in camo, they all wearing the same cap. Sensing I do not belong, I slip out the front door, and am met by Rena who slipped out the back door, and she gives me as kiss, as if to say she will always love me.
What Rachel showed, via pass videos of Clevin Bundy, is that he subscribes to the idea of the Posse Comitatus an extreme right-wing organization.
The Posse Comitatus (from the Latin phrase meaning “force of the county”) is a loosely organized, far-right social movement that opposes the federal government of the United States and believes in localism. There is no single national group, and local units are autonomous.
Posse charters were issued in 1969 in Portland, Oregon, by Henry Lamont Beach, “a retired dry cleaner and one-time member of the Silver Shirts, a Nazi-inspired organization that was established in America after Hitler took power in Germany.” William Potter Gale has been described by one expert as the founder of the movement.
Posse members believe that there is no legitimate form of government above that of the county level and no higher law authority than the county sheriff. If the sheriff refuses to carry out the will of the county’s citizens:
…he shall be removed by the Posse to the most populated intersection of streets in the township and at high noon be hung by the neck, the body remaining until sundown as an example to those who would subvert the law.
Many Posse members practice survivalism and played a role in the formation of the armed citizens’ militias in the 1990s. The Posse Comitatus pioneered the use of false liens and other paper terrorism.
Members of the Posse Comitatus frequently refuse to pay taxes, to obtain driver’s licenses, or otherwise to comply with regulatory authorities. They deny the validity of United States fiat money as not backed by gold, which they claim the Constitution requires.
They have unusual legal documents drawn up and attempt to record them, declaring independence from the United States, or claiming to file “common law” liens against perceived enemies like Internal Revenue Service employees or judges. They are often involved in various tax protests, and have invoked arguments popularized by tax protesters.
In 1983, former Posse member (and accused parole violator) Gordon Kahl killed two federal marshals (who had come to arrest him) in North Dakota and became a fugitive. Another shootout ensued on June 3, 1983, in which Kahl and Lawrence County, Arkansas Sheriff Gene Matthews were killed. Other members of the group have also been convicted of crimes ranging from tax evasion and counterfeiting to threatening the lives of IRS agents and judges.
The organization also demonstrated to support its members over other issues such as divorce disputes. On September 2, 1975, Francis Earl Gillings, the founder of a San Joaquin County Posse group, led a group of armed Posse members to prevent United Farm Workers Union organizers from attempting to organize non-union tomato pickers. As sheriff’s deputies attempted to arrest Gillings on a traffic warrant, one got into a scuffle with Gillings and a shot was fired, injuring a deputy’s ear.
On August 15, 2012, five suspects were arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of two sheriff deputies and wounding two others in St. John Parish, Louisiana. Terry Smith, 44; Brian Smith, 24; Derrick Smith, 22; Teniecha Bright, 21; and Kyle David Joekel, 28 were identified, with Brian Smith and Joekel identified as the shooters in the incident. The men are rumored to be affiliated with a Posse Comitatus group. On August 17, 2012, two more suspects—Chanel Skains, 37, and Britney Keith, 23—were charged with accessory after the fact.
Some Posse members embraced the anti-semitic and white supremacist beliefs of Christian Identity. Some believe that the U.S. federal government is illegitimate and in the hands of Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG), an alleged Jewish conspiracy. In 1985, a member of the Posse Comitatus announced: “Our nation is now completely under the control of the International Invisible government of the World Jewry.”
The legal theories of Posse Comitatus have been further developed by the sovereign citizen movement, which claims that a U.S. citizen can become a “sovereign citizen” and thereby be subject only to common law and/or “constitutional law,” not to statutory law (including most taxes). The Uniform Commercial Code plays an important part in these legal theories.
While some African-American groups have adopted sovereign citizen beliefs, the movement is dominated by adherents of Christian Identity. Some within the movement see African Americans, who only gained legal citizenship after the Civil War and passage of the 14th Amendment, as “14th Amendment citizens” with fewer rights than whites.
The sovereign citizen movement gave rise to the “redemption movement,” which claims that the U.S. government has enslaved its citizens by using them as collateral against foreign debt. Redemption scheme promoters sell instructions explaining how citizens can “free” themselves by filing particular government forms in a particular order using particular wording. The movement “has earned its promoters untold profits, buried courts and other agencies under tons of worthless paper, and led to scores of arrests and convictions.”
Alpine County, California
In the later 1970s, the Posse Comitatus attempted to take over Alpine County, California, by settling there. Alpine County is the county with the least population in the US; winning the election in Alpine County was their best opportunity to take control of a single county. Their agenda was discovered and the Posse Comitatus candidate was not elected.
Alpine County is in the Sierra Nevada Mountains east of Stockton on the west and east slope of Ebbetts Pass on State Highway 4. It is the home of Mt Reba Ski Area and the community of Bear Valley. The county seat is Markleeville on the east side of the pass. The population is about 1,000 to 1,100 people.
On January 27, 2014 I got a call from Deputy Sheriff, Dan Mayland, that my Muse, and old girlfriend, Rena Easton – who I had not seen since 1970 – had filed charges in Galliten County Montana – saying I was Stalking her. Rena had written me a four page letter on Christmas Day. She made references to this blog. I do not know how she got my address. I did not know whether she was dead or alive.
After receiving my letter I mailed on January 10th. Rena became alarmed at all or some of the content, and showed it to a un-named person. This person confirmed Rena’s paranoia was spot-on, and she angrily destroyed my letter. In order to own proof I was Stalking her, Rena wrote a copy of my letter, and a copy of the letter she wrote me, and showed it to Dan Mayland. Dan assured me that both letters were written by Rena, and were summoned up by an amazing photographic memory that Ms. Easton owns.
I compared Renay with the Muse, Julie Strain, who has been rendered by several artists. I found it strange that sheriff Dan Wayland is relaying a message from Rena that she will not be sending any more information about herself, and, a attorney may get involved in regards to my blog. My attorney will see if this was official police business, and not a case of a friend doing a friend a favor. Of course I am going to file a complaint against sheriff Mayland because he owned evidence my letter was in response to the letter Rena sent – but he never asks me to send him a copy of that letter to complete his investigation.
Until I am my attorney see something that resembles a real, and sane police investigation, I am going to assume many people are bewitched and beguiled by you-know-who? This is great material for a movie that I am going to market for profit. My new title ‘Artist-Business-Man’ gives me much immunity I did not enjoy as ‘Whacked Out Crazy Artist Stalker and Sex Fiend’. I mean, this is right out of the movie ‘Bucket of Blood’. When Dan Wayland learned I was an author and there were movie scripts out there about a world famous artist who Rena was the Muse of, Dan backed off toned his approach down, which was intimidating! Yep, them country sheriffs know how to handle them New York artists – and those wierdos from France. You think there was some prejudice here. Consider how prophetic my ‘Waiting or Artaud’ post. I mean, there has to be something supernatural going on here!
Of course I was looking forward to Renay sending me photos of herself, but, I am going to learn computer imaging and work from the copyrighted image I own. An artist doing battle with his savage muse is a great story. There is powerful evidence that every woman who has come near the Rosamond Legacy, has become possessed. There is evidence Renay got involved in Satanic Worship with her boyfriend, and thus her mention of coming out of a dark and dangerous place.
Now we’re down to it! My readers are going to love this journey to the Dark Side in search of the Chosen One……She, who must be obeyed, or she is going to the sheriff, before she complains to the artist. Who knows where she will strike next – or why! SHE! SHE! SHE! Coming to a theatre near you!
I was really disturbed by that film ‘Meth Boom in Montana’ where that preety young girl says this after shooting meth in her neck like the bite of a vampire;
“No straight person can ever get this high.”
I am sure sheriff Mayland has his hands full with some real whacked out speed freaks, and needed a break, because not any of them are half as interesting as the case of ‘The Artist and The Muse’.
After seeing that video, I crossed off Montana as a place I might dwell. Me thinks the chamber of commerce of Bozeman has enough bad publicity on their hands. They don’t need an old muse springing out of the past to bite a respectable artist and writer on the neck, and then castrate him in the public square! But, who knows, this might all be a famous horror movie one day, shot on location, that will be a boon to the locals. I’m going to hire a guy to sell T-shirts with my muse on them, with red around her mouth. ‘Wolf Woman’. Rena will get a lot of interviews, and be in the Rosy limelight.
