What’s a choose to do when the Magna Carta/Freeman on the Land crew threaten you with hanging and begin menacing courtroom clerks as effectively?
As Rosalind English famous in a previous post, Canada’s newest Freemen judicial selections in AVI and MHVB and Jacqueline Robinson (I and II) have needed to reply these pointed questions.
Rosalind’s observe canvassed the primary determination by Justice Robert Graesser of the Alberta Courtroom of Queen’s Bench calling out the actions of Jacqueline Robinson who had inserted herself right into a high-conflict youngster custody case with disastrous outcomes for the mom she was ‘serving to’. Robinson’s efforts included invoking Article 61 of the 1215 Magna Carta regardless of it having been repealed some 800 years earlier and a requirement for the return of the mom’s “property” (learn ‘youngster’). With Robinson’s Magna Carta Lawful Rise up assist, the mom went from having shared youngster entry to no entry and being eliminated as a guardian.
Given Robinson’s optimistic authorized hurt to the mom and her threats of “the gallows” if the calls for weren’t met, Justice Graesser barred Robinson from purporting to characterize the mom in any approach earlier than the Courtroom. He additionally invited submissions from Robinson as as to whether additional restrictions barring her from representing or speaking besides on her personal behalf with any Courtroom in Alberta have been applicable.
Reasonably than take the judicial warning to coronary heart, nonetheless, Robinson determined to reveal the maxim that ‘some individuals simply don’t get it.’ Robinson elevated her Magna Carta scorched earth marketing campaign and began concentrating on courtroom workers as effectively threatening that they have been aiding and abetting treason, evaluating them to Nazi struggle criminals who invoked the failed ‘simply doing my job’ defence, and warning their destiny can be topic to individuals’s courts.
Justice Graesser was having none of it, which brings us to MHVB and Jacqueline Robinson II (hyperlink AVI v MHVB, 2020 ABQB 790 (CanLII) issued on 16 December 2020. Whereas noting the “temptation to disregard OPCAs [Organized Pseudolegal Commercial Arguments] and deal with them as irritants,” Justice Graesser acknowledged that the place the numbers betray a profitable organizing effort, “the general public must be protected against them.”
Given Robinson’s guru function on this and different circumstances, Justice Graesser prohibited Robinson from offering authorized recommendation and from representing or speaking with any Courtroom in Alberta apart from on her personal behalf. Additional, Graesser warned that her conduct to this point could already represent the prison offence of intimidating a justice system participant underneath Part 423.1 of the Criminal Code and that the Courtroom would think about any future disobedience to be prison contempt of courtroom.
In rendering the choice, Justice Graesser despatched the clear message that the Courtroom had the inherent energy to defend itself from Robinson’s threats and intimidation towards the Courtroom and its workers.
Evaluating Robinson to a Typhoid Mary of the Freemen conspiracy concept world, Graesser rejected any argument the expanded authorized controls on Robinson have been overkill saying:
This will look like the usage of a sledgehammer to crush an ant. I might as a substitute use the analogy of an inoculation to cease a virus. OPCA and MCLR gurus hurt individuals. Ms. Robinson has already harmed MHVB and her household. These gurus train illusions that may predictably fail. They promise a lot, however their clientele will get lower than nothing. [para 53]
In what can solely be hoped to be a message that may attain individuals inside or liable to falling into the Freemen authorized quagmire, Justice Graesser identified that the Magna Carta Lawful Rise up is not any totally different from all these Freemen incarnations which have come earlier than:
These schemes are nothing greater than cons, led by individuals who rely and feed on the oft quoted assertion attributed to P.T. Barnum (of circus fame): a sucker is born each minute. That’s as true now because it was when spoken greater than 150 years in the past. The Courts aren’t suckers. And the Courts is not going to be intimidated.
