LAST EPISODE: DERRICK GRAYSON: DRIVE TIME ZEN

 

With the recent killing of James Boyd, the camper from New Mexico, an uproar has begun in this country. With the senseless murder of a man doing little more than setting up a place in which to sleep in the middle of the desert, the true nature of our law enforcement agencies has become clear. They are not here to protect and serve, rather they are here to enforce statutes and acts with the barrel of a gun. As more and more video is being uploaded of police brutality on a daily basis, we as Americans have to ask ourselves when enough is enough.
In the following episode of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V., Daniel Louis Crumpton paints a picture of the horror we as Liberty activists are facing when dealing with the police. In it he shares some disturbing footage of cruel acts performed by the police on average citizens and explains our right to defend ourselves against them when they step outside the confines of the Constitution. The following are some of the references for the “Stand your Ground” law he mentions near the conclusion:
“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

“When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80; Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.

“These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence.” Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.

“An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery.” (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).

“Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense.” (State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).

“One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance.” (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).

“Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In his own writings, he had admitted that ‘a situation could arise in which the checks-and-balances principle ceased to work and the various branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.’ There would be no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded, ‘If there be any remedy at all … it is a remedy never provided for by human institutions.’ That was the ‘ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous injustice.’” (From Mutiny on the Amistad by Howard Jones, Oxford University Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

As for grounds for arrest: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace.” (Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197).

It was once said of America, that we were a terrible dragon waking up. Let it be said now that what is waking up is a terrible Red, White and Blue dragon. Enjoy ZEN IN THE CAR T.V.

LAST EPISODE: CHRIS HILL AND HIRAM L. MADGE, SONS OF THUNDER

I can remember during the last couple of presidential election cycles feeling very much like an island at times in my support of Ron Paul. Now keep in mind, no one that supported Ron Paul really supported the man, rather what the man stood for; Freedom, Liberty and the Constitution. In a world where people focus on the technicalities of what a document says rather than the soul of what is written, it was rare to find others that had such concepts burning in their bones. It was rare to find someone who didn’t approach the Constitution like a legal document rather like a Holy document. While others were supporting politicians, we were supporting a statesman. We were supporting a man who was open, honest, and not offering to butter our bread more than he was offering us the opportunity to butter our own damn bread.

Derrick Grayson with Jason Patrick

During that time there were few media voices willing to shout from the rooftops and echo this message of Freedom and Liberty, so we as supporters had to become the media. Derrick Grayson (TMOT) was one of the loudest and clearest advocates for the concepts we all embrace here at ZENINTHECAR.COM. I can’t tell you how many days I raced home to catch his “Drive Time” rants on YouTube and sat on the edge of my seat with the feeling that finally I was not alone. Finally there was someone else that understood this type of thing without having to walk them around the pond. He doesn’t mince words, he doesn’t dodge questions, and he doesn’t water down the words of our Founding Fathers. When we released the project statement I AM THE COG, a comprehensive plan to take back our Republic, Derrick Grayson was one of the first to throw his support behind it, and since that time we knew he was as Stan Lee would say, a True Believer. So it tickled us to no avail to find out that he was running for the House of Representatives for our fine state. Team Zen scrambled to find out how we could contribute to his voice getting louder and his campaign becoming a success. And after all that scrambling we decided just to do what we do best. Cover him as we would any other politician and let his own words either uplift or condemn him.

We find it ironic that Derrick Grayson is known for “Drive Time” where most of his ideas probably come to him while stuck in a car, and we here attained Enlightenment in ours while stuck in traffic. It appears a hybrid baby of ZEN and DRIVE TIME was inevitable with all that hindsight being 20\20 and all. So we hope you enjoy a little Drive Time Zen.

DRIVE TIME ZEN

SYRIA, GOVERNMENT PARANOIA, AND DRAGON CON

Once again the federal government is using the same tactic it always uses to distract the masses from the fact that they have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, and that’s by doing what they always try to do; kicking off another war. This time it’s Syria, and for most Americans if you can say those guys are Muslims-it usually works. However thankfully this time a great more resistance has been thrown up by the war weary citizens of the country which was once free and once brave to the striking of yet another country that poses no threat to us.
With the recent cluster intercourse over the Syria issue, protests were planned all across the land to just stop this stupidity and bring the boys back home as Roger Waters advised us two or three decades ago. When the guys here at ZENINTHECAR.COM heard an Atlanta rally was in the works, the gas was in the Millennium Falcon and the giga-whatever was emptied in the cameras so that we could make our way to the capitol of Georgia to hold signs and scream at sleeping sheep.

Worked out great for me because sneaking in the back of my mind was the fact that Dragon Con was happening, as it does every year on my birthday, and I can’t deny I did want to be a part of that vibrational energy yet another year. Obviously it was a strange coincidence (for those of you unbelievers that believe in mere coincidence) for us to discover that the cornerstone had been set by the Freemasons on September the 2nd way back when. You could say I’m reading into too much to which I would respond; learn how to read.
So the boys here at ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. managed to kill a few birds with one Rosetta stone and compile political activism, my birthday, super-hero geekness, and saving the Republic with one single stroke. Yes; we are that organized and cool. And while exhibiting that organizational coolness we actually had the chance to do a good thing; which is raise awareness to the recent debacle of the federal government of not only being paranoid of its own citizens, but being obsessive compulsive about sucking us dry to fund their endeavors in ruling the world. The following is a compilation of our protests mixed with the exposure of American citizens being monitored for the mere expression of free speech. Our presence was met with some obvious, idiotic friction; but for the most part we all received pats on the backs, high fives, and hand- shakes of appreciations from far more people at the end of the day. What happened at Dragon Con when we were done trying to save the country is classified…because what happens at Dragon Con, stays at Dragon Con. So enjoy the activism and in the words of Jason the First, begin to choose who you are.
Ron Paul always said, if you aren’t having fun, you aren’t doing it right. So if you are going to join us in this fight of saving the Republic; if you are going to subscribe, like, and share….as we know you are-then make it a point to show up to the next thing whatever it may be. If you can make it to a protest, a march, a city council meeting though it only be once a month put that time aside. Because not only is activism essential, it’s actually quite fun.
Oppose the policing of the world, and oppose the policing of your own city, and especially oppose the policing of your own lives. Enjoy Zen In The Car T.V.
