The trial of millionaire tax protester Robert Beale turned bizarre even before jury selection began Monday as the prosecutor announced the arrest of four of Beale’s supporters for conspiring with Beale to disrupt the proceedings and intimidate the judge.
“God … wants me to take the judge out, that’s what he wants me to do,” Beale allegedly told his common-law wife, according to a new criminal complaint filed against him and the four associates.
“Once I take down Ann Montgomery, no judge in the whole court will have anything to do with me,” Beale said in a tape-recorded phone call from jail.
Beale is a “member/leader” of what’s known among certain groups as an extra-judicial “Common Law Court” in Ramsey County. The lengthy title of this specific “court” indicates a religious undercurrent, including a reference to “a superior court for the People, original jurisdiction under Almighty Yahweh exclusive jurisdiction in and for confederation-government United States of America.”
These are the guys behind world nut daily folks, just in case you were wondering why it’s such a source of insanity.
And what’s with people not paying their taxes? Wesley Snipe fell for this nonsense conspiracy that the income tax is illegal as well. People, pay your taxes! I’ve heard about this nonsense before that the amendment was never ratified, yada yada. It’s constitutional, if you don’t pay your taxes you will go to jail, get over it.
