Then get God down here as your lawyer.

Until then, you are subject to earthly jurisdiction, moron.

"James Beeks, who played Judas in the musical"

He should have gone with method actor working in a role.

I mean he was Judas, if the part fits wear it.

Shut it, Judas!

That will go great for him.
All Republicans who stayed home that day are laughing at these idiots, and chuckling that they have so many stupid followers willing to go to prison and even die to a virus for racism and greed.

"Prior to the hearing, the Justice Department was not requesting that Beeks be kept in jail while awaiting trial. That changed, however, after Beeks asserted his "divine" authority."

A defendant who rejects the jurisdiction of the court...rejects the rule of law," Howell said, "is typically not released pre-trial," though the judge eventually released Beeks on GPS monitoring when he finally agreed -- after speaking privately with his lawyer -- to cooperate.
"


It's so lovely the lengths they go to to take it easy on these asshats.

The judge SHOULD have remanded the nutter for psychological evaluation. If for no other reason than to get him off the farking streets.

"Investigators found Beeks after attending two performances of 'Jesus Christ Superstar,' where Beeks was starring as Judas."

How appropriate....

Yes, tell the people with the guns and the prisons that they don't have authority over you when you're standing in their courtroom. That always works.

Even if it was true, what do you propose to do about it?

Actually, a fair number of the Republicans who stayed home are being brainwashed by their media as soldiers for the next coup attempt.

Imagine the first coup as goblins and a couple orcs with but a single shaman.  One death and they failed their morale rolls.  Low level stuff.

Roger Stone is always collecting this kind of riff raff for causing such disturbances.

Because this is their base, this is who cubes out and votes in primary elections, it's been this way at least since the teaparty movement.

/definitely the plum role in the show
//played a pharisee in a biloxi production of JCS many, many years ago. each pharisee had a different style hat. caiaphas's hat looked like a circumcised penis. our jesus actually went around looking like [white] jesus on a regular basis, for various church shows. he occasionally stood outside the green room door smoking, which was an unusual sight to say the least

I wish there were some way to let all these libertarian anti-government types a way to experience what it would actually be like without a government.

They think they'd all be good neighbors, just getting along and going to work and having beers with each other on the weekend while watching the game, all while being free of taxes and big government intrusion on their free and happy lives. They have no idea that instead, they'd be turned into cannon fodder meat shields for whichever warlord turned up in their neck of the woods and conscripted them into their army. They probably think they'd be the warlords themselves. Or that they'd use their freedom guns to defend themselves from the warlords. So naïve.

It reminds me of the whole Galt's Gulch premise in Atlas Shrugged. Yeah... a bunch of capitalists are all gonna get along merrily with each other, just letting each other be their best and not interfering or trying to take over each others' businesses or stabbing each other in the back. Because that's sooo what happens in the real world. And Rand never really mentions all the non-capitalist leaders in Galt's Gulch. All those ditch diggers must simply adore living in their little company town. No more big government taking half their paycheck in taxes. Nope, don't have to pay any taxes at all. Freedom! Oh by the way, a gallon of milk costs 1,000 company scrip. That's a week's wages. No, there are no other places to buy milk except the company store. Doesn't matter anyway because you're only paid in company scrip. Freedom!

/rant over

Fake license plates have to be done kind of crime. Not sure which, but something.

That's what gets me. Has anyone heard of the whole Sovereign Citizen shtick ever working? Even marginally? Even if it's obviously a bs story? These morons go into real courtrooms and ruin their lives over something that sounds like it was invented by a 10 year old, and not a particularly bright one.

Judas is the Republican star of the New Testament.  He earned thirty pieces of silver for turning the liberal in to the authorities.

The tales of his suicide is all fake news though.

Not sure if it is but really doesn't need to be. Driving without a valid registration, license or insurance are all crimes. If anything the fake plate is a confession. These are NOT bright people.

This is the power of the conspiracy theory and faith based beliefs.

When it doesn't work, it isn't because they are wrong. Its because the people that failed didn't believe hard enough.

That's the power of the deluded. You never prove them wrong. You just prove that the conspiracy is even bigger.

/Side note: if all the legal system is in on a conspiracy you don't agree to.... That's called "the law" and they are right.

Fair enough. I'm wondering if making your own fake sovereign citizen "constitutional driving authority card", if that would fall under a false driver's license, or if the judge would just laugh at you before P. Barnes worked his magic.

At the very least, no valid registration. Not that it matters to these goobers.

I saw one of these clowns last spring, in a clapped-out old F150. Not in the least bit surprisingly, he was driving like a complete asshat.
