We live in a world where the handicapped are tazered sitting in their wheelchairs; where Americans will be forced to wear an electronic bracelet to travel on a plane; where our conversations are recorded though the phones for which we pay, and where the prison system is viewed as a profit center for government. This should give you pause. As you watch, the banks that held the sweat and earnings of lifetimes are melting down into nothing. Our funds are disappearing into the already bulging coffers of foreigners. It is time to take stock, to look baldly at where we are and consider what it means to be an American.
On the 4th of July you probably watched fireworks, a distraction. Instead, listen as someone reads aloud the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration is the mission statement of a people who rejected the idea that government was sovereign, instead fulfilling the vision of a people who governed themselves.
How long has it been since we had an honest election? For how long have you accepted the pablum dished out as patriotism without understanding that being an American means not flags and fireworks but insisting that the power of government remain directly with people?
After years of war those long dead revolutionaries adopted a Constitution intended not to govern them but to strictly limit what government could do in their names. One of the most important safeguards they included was an Oath of Office, to be signed and kept on file for every one of those employed to do the work assigned to government.
Today as many as 90% of those elected to positions of trust ignore that Oath. They have their reasons, and those reasons would incite our Founders to action. They should move us to action as well.
Included with this mailing is a copy of the complaint and demand filed with the District Attorney for Santa Barbara County, Monday July 14th, 2008. The matter to be taken up is the unlawful presence of Thomas Anderle, sitting as a judge of the Superior Court of Santa Barbara. “Judge” Anderle placed on file a truncated Oath of Office, failed to pay for a bond, and otherwise violated the law and the Constitution of the State of California and the U. S. Constitution.
George Bush has said that the Constitution is just a piece of paper. What do you think? How do you feel when you read about another attack on Americans by our own government? If you think the Constitution is just a piece of paper then you are wrong. It is the bulwark intended to protect you from corruption. Today we need to make sure it is fully in force.
On the 4th of July you should have read the Declaration of Independence. Remind yourself what it means to be free and an American. Then read the complaint being filed against Thomas Anderle below. No one can be free unless they free themselves from illusion first.
“”Addendum of Complaint and demand for Grand Jury against Thomas Anderle, sitting unlawfully as a judge of the Superior Court of Santa Barbara.
Cause of Action:
The Constitution of the State of California requires that an oath be signed for any elected official to be lawfully in office. Additionally, the official must provide a bond, paid for by himself. The wording of the Oath of Office is mandated by law. In California that wording, found in the, “CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE 20 MISCELLANEOUS SUBJECTS is as follows: "I, ______, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter.
"And I do further swear (or affirm) that I do not advocate, nor am I a member of any party or organization, political or other wise, that now advocates the overthrow of the Government of the United States or of the State of California by force or violence or other unlawful means; that within the five years immediately preceding the taking of this oath (or affirmation) I have not been a member of any party or organization, political or other wise, that advocated the overthrow of the Government of the United States or of the State of California by force or violence or other unlawful means except as follows:
(If no affiliations, write in the words "No Exceptions") and that during such time as I hold the office of ___________________________ I will not advocate nor become (name of office) a member of any party or organization, political or otherwise, that advocates the overthrow of the Government of the United States or of the State of California by force or violence or other unlawful means."
The Oath of Office was taken very seriously by our Founders. For any elected official, including all judges, to lawfully occupy an elected office, the Oath must be signed by a notary and the seal present. Even then the Oath is not binding if not accompanied by a Bond, paid for by the individual himself. The bond provides insurance for litigants against corruption or incompetence by the judge. A record of that bond must be on file and available for public scrutiny. Every litigant should demand this proof to ensure that the judge is acting lawfully. 1 | 2
Each of these specific requirements must be in place and on file. Failure to fulfill any of the above is a felony.
In the case of Thomas Anderle, presently sitting on the bench of the Superior Court in Santa Barbara, the Oath of Office fails all of these requirements. First, it has been intentionally altered. The second paragraph is missing, entirely excised. On this alone Anderle is occupying the office of judge unlawfully. But there is more.
