When Mordecai spoke to Esther about the edict of the king brought against the children of Israel by the wicked counsel of Haman, he said that God had put her in a choice position to rescue the people, despite peril to her.
“And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: ‘Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?’” (Esther 4:12-14).
God had put an Israelite daughter into the harem of the king Ahasuerus, who had made her his queen, and now she was ordained to save her people — or not. If not, deliverance would come from other quarters.
In prosecuting Gov. Bill Lee and local health boss Becky Barnes, I have gone out on a limb, aware that my fight is entirely alone, with no hired counsel, no deep pocket to cover my time lost at work, no rich benefactor to secure my costs for travel and filings.
Immediately I am to pay a F$550 filing fee for the action shifting to Knoxville, and a $13.50 litigation tax. Chancery court is billing me for F$164, payable in federal reserve system paper money that violates the constitution and all the rules of equity and justice.
A purported bill of F$11,000 from the county attorney’s office also confronts me. But I know it is illegal, and is being pushed upon me as a form of harassment. County attorney Sharon Milling and Judge Fleenor pretend not to know that pro se litigants, as they call me, and people suing officials acting illegally “under color of law” cannot be mulcted for legal expenses by law. It’s in the law — but apparently these two women don’t read law.
I am blessed with the help of “gnomes” such as Hal Anthony of the Jefferson Mining District in Oregon and others who bend my ear about the action to compel lawless officials to obey the Tennessee health law. Disobedience to this law has overthrown the government, closed the courts, put the people under lawless edicts and gubernatorial legislation, and violated multiple constitutionally guaranteed God-given inherent and unalienable rights. I also have steady encouragement from Sab Cupelli at the radio station and a new associate, Hayden Couvillon, who is bent on helping our cause in any way he can.
Numerous people have helped with expenses through my page at GoFundMe — to date, donors have put in F$5,010. I am hugely thankful, and feel undeserving as all getout or all the sacrifice that money represents. Others have given me checks and cash personally as I wage a fight 212 days in court in a state of disaster in Tennessee that is 416 days old — and not over yet.
The CV-19 flu is losing sap. The economy is reopening. But the state of emergency continues — for reasons of subsidy, lucre and global policy that will serve up further iterations of the overthrow of limited constitutional Republican government. For now mask rules are largely gone, but drones and moofs among the people continue self-suffocation and self-deletion by obscuring their faces, mouths and nostrils.
