I get more pissed off with each day that passes, you will not take my private property without paying the price. Hey I have have paid my half of the court fees as ordered in the civil case Conlee vs Boatner. File a contempt charge against me on that one, State of Iowa!

I am so upset this a.m. Let me tell you why. I am 61 years old, just started getting arthritis in my knee. I spent the entire day and night at a river park in Keokuk, Ia. I have to go there now to work on my vehicles. I had a garage that had heat and AC. I have air compressor and air tools. I had room for two cars in my garage if I wanted to put two cars in there. I have nothing, I was offered nothing and I am not about to settle for nothing.  The chemicals that I was intentionally exposed to caused me to have a chronic skin condition that I cannot control. Prior to being exposed to these chemicals I never so much as had poison ivy. I want you to understand completely what the evidence supports happened to me at the hands of my government officials. I want you to understand that at every opportunity for the government to intervene they have made the choice, not to act on my behalf in their duties according to Federal law.
But let’s get back to why I am feeling intense stress at this time. I have always maintained my own equipment. I like maintaining my own equipment. I am replacing a leaking break line on my car at this time. However instead of having my garage and equipment to assist me in such endeavours I had to leave my vehicle at the river park on a jack stand for the rest of the night. I am simply to tired to finish the job tonight. It takes me much longer to complete any given task now that I was force to flee from my private property, including my well laid out garage. I have to depend on trying to contact someone to give me a ride down to the park to attempt to finish the brake line tomorrow.
The entire day and night the RR crossing arms were down and the warning bells are loud and were ringing constantly during my attempt to get some needed maintenance done on my car. My head is pounding and the ringing seems as if I am still at the park. Why in the hell should I have to go to the park to work on my vehicle. How in the hell is this acceptable. I cannot use my air tools at the park, the hose to my compressor is not 2 miles long. The lifestyle I chose allowed for me to put my car in my garage and use my tools in an efficient manner. Not only did I have to leave my car in the park on a jack stand this morning. But I also had to call friends twice during the time I spent at the park today. I happened to forget a couple of the tools I needed for the brake line repair. I chose to have a garage so I would have all my tools conveniently located for any given task. I will have to ask someone to give me a ride back to the park tomorrow. I chose to have my own garage at my own home on my own property because when I was in charge of my own destiny I did not plan on needing to ask people for favors. I did not plan on being taken out of the working class 20 years earlier than I had planned to retire. Had I have been in charge of my own destiny I had planned to use my private property as a source of income in my golden years. If I had control of my own destiny I damn sure would not be in the riverpark barely able to crawl in and out from under my vehicle or get up off the ground due to the arthritis in my knee at 61 years old.
I am absolutely livid. Here are the basics of my environment complaint. I was intentionally exposed to glyphosate by my neighbor Mark Conlee. Is that a crime? Yes it is the crime of trespassing at the minimum. Trespassing complaints a commonly filed in Lee County Iowa. There is no good or legal reason I should have been denied the right to file a trespassing complaint against Mark Conlee.
Conspiracy against rights. … If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person […] in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;…
Ok, so whoever the individual was that refused me that right can be viewed as a conspirator against my rights. My right to enjoy my private property, my right to use my private property as I wished as cited by Judge John Linn.
Iowa District Court Lee County
 Case no.   No. EQEQ004304
Conlee vs Boatner.
Right off the top the three who denied my right to file a criminal complaint for trespassing against Mark Conlee are
  1. former City of Montrose Police Chief Brent Shipman,
  2. former Lee County Attorney Mike Short and
  3. current Lee County Iowa Attorney Ross Braden.

Ross Braden was told about my situation soon after he accepted his position of Lee County Attorney and he advised that he was not interested. He and the prior named all knew that criminal acts were being committed against me and they chose not to protect me from harm or protect my Federal rights leaving all a conspirator against my rights.

Your job is fish (Unknown)

Ms Melody…I don’t know how you do it, day in, day out.

I tell you the truth with each day that passes I feel the need to remedy my situation myself. It seems that there will be no justice served by our legal system. I have reached out to every person who I feel may remotely have the ability to use their influence to assist me. And to top it off is was just a matter of months ago a couple county deputies came knocking on my door asking if I had threatened anyone from my hometown. I immediately went into open a can of whoopass mode on these cops that had no clue about anything that has taken place. They wanted to come in and look at my computer. I think smoke was coming out my ears. I said you mean to tell me that you are here on behalf of the police chief of my hometown and asking if I have threatened anyone, they nearly killed me. I was forced to flee from my home to save my own life! The one who was questioning me kind of glanced around the room. I happened to be bagging up stuff in those vac bags from dollar tree. I have kept many of my med bottles and keep small items in them. He could not tell what was in them. I had like 5 of those bags on the dining room table. He asked, “do you take all those meds”? I told him yes, that is the only thing that keeps me from carrying out defending myself in the brutal attack your colleagues have committed against me. He hightailed it out the door. I never even asked who the threat was supposed to be against. I have never even met the new police chief. Someone from the AVVO lawyers must have reported me to the Montrose police chief. I asked a question, “who protects me from harm”?. A response was, “you”. I asked a question to that, “I protect myself from harm”? Note the question mark. Stupid asses don’t understand punctuation, that’s what I told the cop. GRRRRR, it just depends on the day. One day I am ready to go armed and loaded and the next I am back to begging for legal assistance that seems will never come. It is tough to keep emotionally together. I am consumed by what they did to me. I am consumed knowing that there is not one other citizen in the Nation who has been forced to flee from their private property to escape chemical weapons, in all cases trespassing complaints have been filed against anyone who would do this only one application. This guy did this for over 5 years on a weekly basis. There are trespassing complaints listed in the newspaper here commonly. The EPA field investigator told me what they were doing was “unheard of”. He was not joking. He advised the only reports he has ever investigated has been from an accidental spill from an factory. I want to know why I was exempt from filing a complaint? I was exempt from filing a complaint against a city clerk who committed multiple counts of document fraud and altering of ordinances specifically and only for me? I want to know why building permits that do not have the required information by the State of Iowa or the signature of the builder have not been pulled and the City of Montrose, Ia. held accountable for fraud? I want to know how an FBI agent can claim to have investigated my complaint but refused to review any hard copy evidence? I want to know how that agent left my home after not reviewing any evidence and got a report to his supervisor and back to my mailbox in a matter of two hours? I want to know the answers to these questions. And nobody has provided me any reasonable explanations. I want the general public to know what has taken place in Lee County, Iowa on behalf of one man that my experience of interaction can only be associated with a full blown psychopath. I want to know where it is written that an AUSA has the authority to violate a civil court order with no type of court proceedings. He cannot produce such a document he is lying. He has an ethical duty to uphold court orders, not violate them because he has attorney discretion. He has discretion not to prosecute but he has no authority to violate a court order that has already been decided. Then he has the balls to lie about it. He needs hung by the balls and put in prison. Nothing worse that a corrupt public official. I can’t say I have met one that is not corrupt or honors his oath of office. Not one!

I want to move on past this so bad but they have me so financially disabled I have no way to get out of this rut. To top that off I bought a car that wasn’t much to look at but was mechanically strong. A dude that works at one of the highest paying factories and his gf who is a CNA let their 13 year old unlicensed daughter drive on the street to pick up a friend. Well she ran a stop sign and the front end of my car is totaled. No insurance, I only have liability. So I am screwed. The court gets $50 a month payment but the cop did not include me as a damaged person on his report so I get no damages. Everytime the government has been involved in my life I get screwed. One time I got a bill from child support services. What? I have never gotten a cent of child support? I blew up that day and I never heard from that agency again. I know of nobody who has ever gotten a bill from child support recovery services. Even if they get child support. I think I may be one of the “targeted individuals”! lol but seriously. lol Thanks for the message. Always good to know someone supports us out here in single female easy target land.  take care

No authorities or persons close to a government authority will respond to this message because they are cowards and committing acts of treason to their duty to the Constitution. A bunch of low life assholes that need bitch slapped. Step on up here I will fist fight every last one of you cowards.

The Attorney General’s guidelines for domestic FBI investigations.

sent to #Grassley, #Loebsack, #Reinwart, #VanderSchel 6-13-2019

The Attorney General’s guidelines for domestic FBI investigations.

The general objective of these Guidelines is the full utilization of all authorities and investigative methods, consistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States, to protect the United States and its people from terrorism and other threats to the national security, to protect the United States and its people from victimization by all crimes in violation of federal law, and to further the foreign intelligence objectives of the United States. At the same time, it is axiomatic that the FBI must conduct its investigations and other activities in a lawful and reasonable manner that respects liberty and privacy and avoids unnecessary intrusions into the lives of law-abiding people. The purpose of these Guidelines, therefore, is to establish consistent policy in such matters. They will enable the FBI to perform its duties with effectiveness, certainty, and confidence, and will provide the American people with a firm assurance that the FBI is acting properly under the law.  

Clearly you have all violated these guidelines. As I reported Violation of my Constitutional Right given by Amendment 4, 5 and 14 have been violated. IN REGARDS TO A PROPER INVESTIGATION BEING DONE THAT IS OBVIOUSLY BEEN NOT WITHIN THESE GUIDELINES. THOMAS REINWART REFUSED TO REVIEW THE HARD COPY EVIDENCE THAT HE SPECIFICAL TRAVELED ON GOVERNMENT FUNDING TO MY HOME TO REVIEW. UPON ARRIVAL REINWART ADVISED ME THAT HE HAD NO INTENTION OF REVIEWING MY HARD COPY EVIDENCE. HE ADVISED ME TO VERBALLY TELL HIM THAT STORY AND HE WOULD TAKE NOTES. I ATTEMPTED TO TOUCH ON THE VIOLATIONS OF FEDERAL LAW THAT HAD BEEN COMMITTED AGAINST ME. HE GAVE ME 2 1/2 HOURS OF HIS TIME. ALL THE WHILE HE WAS CHECKING HIS WATCH AS IF HE HAD AN IMPORTANT PENDING APPOINTMENT. HE HAD THREE NOTES WRITTEN ON HIS PAD WHEN HE EXITED MY HOME. I CAN NOT CONFIRM IF THOSE NOTES WERE RELATED TO THE INFORMATION I HAD TOLD HIM OR NOT. HE SEEMED LETHARGIC DURING THE TIME HE WAS IN MY PRESENCE. HE WAS NOT GIVING ME HIS FULL ATTENTION. TWO HOURS AFTER HE LEFT MY HOME I GET A LETTER FROM THE WASHINGTON DC DEPT OF THE FBI. THE LETTER STATED THAT REINWART HAD DETERMINED NO VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW HAS OCCURRED. THE EVIDENCE PROVES IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO SEND A DECISION TO WASHINGTON DC AND THE DEPUTY ASSISTANT DIRECTOR TO GET THAT DECISION RETURNED TO ME WITHIN TWO HOURS OF REINWART LEAVING MY HOME. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE. THAT BEING SAID REINWART HAD TO HAVE MADE A PREDETERMINED DECISION AS TO WHETHER ANY VIOLATIONS OF FEDERAL LAW HAVE OCCURRED. BASED ON WHAT EVIDENCE? HE USED HEARSAY GIVEN TO A THIRD PARTY BY THE LEE COUNTY SHERIFF WHO I CAN SUBMIT EVIDENCE RIGHT NOW THAT PROVES HE KNOWINGLY MAKES FALSE STATEMENTS. SHERIFF WEBER IS A KNOWN LIAR. MY EVIDENCE HOWEVER IS DIRECTLY FROM PUBLIC RECORD AND CANNOT BE CONSIDERED ANYTHING BUT FACTUAL. AUSA VANDERSCHEL ADVISED ME THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE FACT ARE IN THIS CASE THAT HE WAS GOING TO USE ATTORNEY DISCRETION AND NOT PROSECUTE THOSE WHO USED CHEMICALS AS A WEAPON WITH INTENT TO ELIMINATE ME FROM MY PRIVATE PROPERTY. I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD THE AUTHORITY TO VIOLATE A CIVIL COURT ORDER AND HE ADVISED ME THAT HE DOES HAVE THAT AUTHORITY. I HAVE FOUND NO EVIDENCE THAT HE HAS THE AUTHORITY TO VIOLATE A CIVIL COURT ORDER ANYMORE THAN THESE LOCAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS DID WHEN THIS CIVIL COURT ORDER WAS ISSUED. NO EVIDENCE PROVIDED BY VANDERSCHEL TO PROVE HE HAS THAT AUTHORITY SUGGESTS THAT HE IS KNOWINGLY MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS. I CONTEST ANY DECISION THAT FEDERAL LAW HAS NOT BEEN VIOLATED IN MY CASE. IF YOU CAN PROVIDE ME WITH ANY CASE STATE OR FEDERAL IN WHICH CHEMICAL WEAPONS HAVE BEEN UNLAWFULLY APPLIED TO A NEIGHBOR’S PROPERTY AND IN VIOLATION OF A CIVIL COURT ORDER CHEMICALS CONTINUED TO BE APPLIED TO A CITIZENS PROPERTY WITH NO COMPLIANCE BY THE TRESPASSER OR NO ENFORCEMENT OF COMPLIANCE BY LAW ENFORCEMENT I WOULD GLADLY REVIEW THAT DOCUMENT. I DO NOT BELIEVE TO CAN OFFER UP A DOCUMENT AS SUCH BECAUSE ALL REASONABLE CITIZENS KNOW THAT TRESPASSING IS A VIOLATION OF STATE AND FEDERAL LAW. JOHN KAUFMAN HAS BEEN ADVISING ME FOR OVER TEN YEARS THAT THE FBI WOULD CONTACT ME. THE FBI NEVER CONTACTED ME. I REQUESTED AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO MY CASE EXPLAINING TO KATIE WHAT HAD TAKEN PLACE WITH ME REACHING OUT TO REINWART. SHE IGNORED MY REQUEST AND THE NEXT INQUIRY WAS DONE BY CALVIN SHIVERS WHO ONLY LOOKED AT THE FALSE STATEMENTS AND INFORMATION ALREADY SUBMITTED BY REINWART. SO I AM AGAIN REQUESTING THAT YOU REASSESS THE SITUATION. REFER TO PRIOR CASES IN WHICH LOCAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS HAVE USED CHEMICALS AS A WEAPON TO ELIMINATE A CITIZEN FROM THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY. OR DO YOUR JOBS CORRECTLY AND WITHIN THE GUIDELINES YOUR DUTIES DESCRIBE. AGAIN I AM SUBMITTING VIOLATIONS OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAW THAT HAVE BEEN COMMITTED AGAINST MY PROPERTY AND MY PERSON. PLEASE SUBMIT THIS LETTER PERSONALLY TO YOU SUPERVISOR. I WILL TELL YOU AGAIN THAT I AM NOT ABOUT TO BE THE ONLY PERSON IN THE US TO HAVE MY PRIVATE PROPERTY TAKEN BY MY LOCAL GOVERNMENT USING CHEMICALS AS A WEAPON TO ELIMINATE ME FROM THAT PROPERTY. YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY AND DUTY TO REPRESENT ME, A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES AND YOU HAVE A DUTY TO EXPOSE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FROM THE LOWEST LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT TO THE HIGHEST. NOT RESPONDING TO MY EMAILS IS NOT GOING TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. I AM NOT GOING TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. THOSE WITH THE AUTHORITY ARE GOING TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. VANDERSCHEL PERHAPS YOU SHOULD REREAD MY COMPLAINT UNTIL YOU DO UNDERSTAND THE INFORMATION INCLUDED. YOU DID NOT EVEN RECOGNIZE THE TIMELINE WHEN YOU FIRST MADE YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT IT, REMEMBER? DO YOUR JOB!

Public corruption and civil rights

Corruption

In general terms, corruption cases arise when a local, state, or federal public official receives things of value in exchange for performing, or failing to perform, official acts contemplated by the authority of their position. The public grants authority to officials and, in return, is entitled to receive honest services from all who serve in the government. The prosecutors and professional staff in PCCRS prosecute officials – such as politicians, law enforcement officers, government executives, and correctional officers — who violate the public trust for the sake of self-enrichment.

Civil Rights

PCCRS also prosecutes individuals, whether they be private citizens or public officials, who criminally violate the constitutional rights of individuals. The use of excessive force by law enforcement under the color of law is an example of how public officials can violate an individual’s civil rights. Private individuals who commit violent crimes motivated by bias – commonly known as hate crimes — also violate federal civil rights laws. Hate crime laws recognize and defend the rights of all individuals, regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. 

 

ARTICLE XIV.

“Section 1All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

The reasonable enjoyment of one’s real estate is certainly a vested right, which cannot be interfered with or limited arbitrarily. The constitutional guaranty of protection for all private property extends equally to the enjoyment and the possession of lands. An arbitrary interference by the government, or by its authority, with the reasonable enjoyment of private lands is a taking of private [728] property without due process of law, which is inhibited by the constitutions. But it is not every use which comes within this constitutional protection. One has a vested right to only a reasonable use of one’s lands. It is not difficult to find the rule which determines the limitations upon the lawful ways or manner of using lands. It is the rule, which furnishes the solution of every problem in the law of police power, and which is comprehended in the legal maxim, sic utere tuo, ut alienum non lædas. One can lawfully make use of his property only in such a manner as that he will not injure another. Any use of one’s lands to the hurt or annoyance of another is a nuisance, and may be prohibited. At common law that is a nuisance, which causes personal discomfort or injury to health to an unusual degree. As it has been expressed in a preceding section,1 the right of personal security against acts, which will cause injury to health or great bodily discomfort, cannot be made absolute in organized society. It must yield to the reasonable demands of trade, commerce and other great interests of society. While the State cannot arbitrarily violate the right of personal security to health by the unlimited authorization of acts which do harm to health, or render one’s residence less comfortable, there is involved in this matter the consideration of what constitutes a reasonable use of one’s property. At common law this is strictly a judicial question of fact, the answer to which varies according to the circumstances of each case. One is expected to endure a reasonable amount of discomfort and annoyance for the public good, which is furthered by the permission of trades and manufactures, the prosecution of which necessarily involves a certain amount of annoyance or injury to the inhabitants of the neighborhood. In all such cases, it is a question of equity, on whom is it reasonable to impose the burden of the inevitable loss, resulting from this clashing [729] of interests; and independently of statute it is strictly a judicial question, and all the circumstances of the case must be taken into consideration

Chemical Weapons

This crime is punishable by any term of years in prison. If the crime results in death, the punishment is death or life imprisonment. Property owned or used by the person is subject to forfeiture. Any property derived from and proceeds obtained from the offense and property used to commit or facilitate the offense is also subject to forfeiture. The statute also imposes an additional fine of up to twice the gross profit or proceeds from the offense (18 U.S.C. 229, et seq.).

A chemical weapon is:

  1. a toxic chemical and its precursors (chemical reactants that take part in producing a toxic chemical) unless intended for a purpose that is not prohibited and the type and quantity is consistent with that purpose,
  2. a munition or device designed to cause death or harm through toxic chemicals that would be released by the device, or
  3. equipment designed for use directly in connection with using such a munition or device.

A toxic chemical is a chemical that can cause death, temporary incapacitation, or permanent harm to people or animals.

The law specifies that it does not apply to self-defense devices such as pepper spray or chemical mace. It also does not prevent uses related to (1) industrial, agricultural, research, medical, or pharmaceutical activity; (2) protection against chemical weapons; (3) unrelated military purposes; and (4) law enforcement purposes such as riot control and imposing the death penalty.

 

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241 – Conspiracy Against Rights This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).

It further makes it unlawful for two or more persons to go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another with the intent to prevent or hinder his/her free exercise or enjoyment of any rights so secured.

Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to ten years, or both; and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years, or for life, or may be sentenced to death.

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242 – Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.

This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an alien or by reason of his/her color or race.

Acts under “color of any law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under “color of any law,” the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to one year, or both, and if bodily injury results or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined or imprisoned up to ten years or both, and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

My Doctor says “I am pioneer of the effects Roundup by Monsanto can cause to the human body after being intentionally exposed to the chemical for over five years on a routine basis.

So how many citizens have been eliminated from their private property by local government officials using glyphosate as a weapon, unlawfully applied to your property?

Let me tell you how many. NONE. So this FBI agent refused to review my evidence, never checked financial record to see if a bribe has been paid. I believe an investigation into the financial records would show a bribe being taken in the amount of $4000.00. The Assistant US Attorney advised me that no matter what the evidence proves he will use attorney discretion and not prosecute corrupt local officials who used chemical weapons to eliminate me from my private property. He also advised that unless this trespasser states that he intentionally used chemicals to harm me, he would not prosecute. The evidence shows he admits that he applied chemicals to my property, in violation of a civil court order and the medical records show the chemicals caused me serious injury. Who in the hell do they think they are to have the authority to violate a civil court order. Who the hell do they think they are to violate my Constitutional right to private property. Senator Grassley has been advising me since 2007 to be patient, the FBI would contact me, he said. It takes time. Senator Grassley did this over a period of ten years. Clearly if he would not have assured me that there would be a competent investigation I would have found other sources. Senator Grassley don’t be telling your constituents that you can assist with authorities representing Federal law because in this case you have only clearly misunderstood the significance of this violation of Constitutionally guaranteed right to enjoy private property. Somebody needs to pay attention because if you think that I am willing to take this on the chin you better think again. I don’t calm down with everyday that passes, I get more angry. I am pissed off why would you assume my evidence does not fall within the guidelines for public corruption. John Kaufman continued to advise me that you are not an attorney. Well this is so simple to recognize as being a terrorist act that you do not need to be a damn attorney. What happened to the evidence I sent per your special instructions to Penny. Had you of acted on that at that time I would still have my home, business and property. I have asked John multiple times. He simply says that would be to difficult to access. Well this is my life and I believe my freedoms are equally important as you all do. Do not ignore me Senator Grassley I will am not going anywhere until I am confident that you know the facts of this case. You should just go ahead and contact me now so we can get on with this. If not you will succumb to bad karma spirits. You can’t treat a human being like this government, your government has done to me. It is a violation of international law. It is a  crime against humanity. You were on that committee when this began and you don’t know what laws you were representing? The actions against me can be considered nothing less that war crimes. Everyone of you took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Everyone of you recognize that using chemical weapons is a war crime. Everyone of you that turn a blind eye instead of looking into my allegations are guilty of committing war crimes. And you have no compassion for committing these crimes against a fellow American? And the victim is what we are seeing as becoming the typical person attacked being a single middle aged female. You would not commit these acts against a man because a man would defend his property by taking up arms. I would have if you would not have continued to assure me that the FBI would investigate. You find me one other case with these circumstances, a person’s private property is taken control of by a neighbor using chemicals as a weapon with intent to eliminate that person. You find a case and I will go away. You will not find a case with these circumstances because every reasonable person knows it is illegal to trespass on the private property of another. Why was I denied filing a trespassing complaint. I have a list of these charges in this county but I was denied by the city and county attorney. Bullshit. You have to attack a single middle aged woman that has more dignity in her little finger that you have in your entire corrupt bodies. Get freshened up on your hate crimes because I can feel any compassion I have had for fellow man has dissipated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FkbzNnnPg4

Letter I wrote in 2011, got no response from State and Federal officials.

To whom it may concern,
I have followed every procedure available to me in the civil court system. Elected City officials and City police officers have publicly defamed my character over a period of over 4 years. County law enforcement officers have publicly defamed my character by knowingly making false statements about my character over the police radio heard by any citizen with a police scanner in their home. I have been denied my right to enjoy my own home, business and property for a period of over 4 years.I have been denied equal protection of the law for over a period of 4 years. I have been denied the right to file criminal complaints against the perpetrators by law enforcement officers for over a period of 4 years. I was a victim of domestic terrorism by being intentionally exposed to toxic chemicals applied on my property by the owner of the property adjoining mine and in violation of EPA regulations by the City for over a period of 4 years. The city official refused his appointed duty to address the concerns of a resident in reference to the nuisance drainage issue, there is no record of this long time or any other appointed building administrator refusing his duty in a private manner by going to the site in question and answering questions of the property owners involved. I contacted a local elected State Representative. He having never heard of a situation as I described being treated contacted City Hall on my behalf requesting I be put on the agenda, in an effort to force the appointed council member to answer my questions. Public records shows it a rare occasion that particular council member having served 15 years that I lived in town and many years prior to my moving into City limits was absent at this meeting. His absence was an intentional act to avoid his duty to address my concerns. Local law enforcement officers have refused to investigate my allegations by refusing to review the documented evidence or question the list of witnesses I have provided to the officer and the County Attorney. The City officials have continuously refused their duty enforce compliance of State laws pertaining to property redevelopment that protect adjoining property from nuisance drainage, required set backs of new structures. The adverse effects to my property were foreseeable and preventable. The City acted intentionally negligent and the redevelopment of this property caused a loss of value to my property according to the assessor due to the excessive increase of storm water diverted directly on to my property. The fact the criminal acts against me were perpetrated by the Mayor (who was also the seller of the property being redeveloped adjoining mine), several council members, City police officers, the County Attorney and 2 County deputies violated their duty to protect and chose to conspire in criminal and unethical offenses. No where in the Constitution or Bill of rights either State or Federal that states a government official is allowed to opt out of his sworn duty. Now the Federal Government officials has the duty investigate my evidence, defend and protect my individual rights given by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Nor does the fact that these individuals being government officials exempt them from being held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in a Federal Court. These same individuals have a history of unethical behavior in the past. Using their positions in a self-serving manner. I am unaware of any so brutal to cause personal injury to another human being as has happened to me. My case is unprecedented. I am a victim of domestic terrorism by the use of toxic chemicals, chemical warfare. No different than anthrax or any other dangerous chemical. When reports of anthrax being sent by mail to government officials or other individuals of notoriety it is taken very serious by the Federal Government, The FBI is investigating the evidence of every allegation immediately. I was selected to speak to a Congressional committee on capitol hill in the past. My testimony helped provide many poor family acquire the assets to become productive members of society. I owned my own home, owned a highly reputable self-employed business and a substantial size piece of property for 15 years. I was debt free and had an excellent credit rating. Does that qualify me as being worthy of at least the professional courtesy of my simple request of an investigation? An  investigation by the FBI should be acted on immediately on behalf of any citizen who’s allegations are as serious in nature as what I have been the victim of. Physical injury due to ongoing intentional exposure to toxic chemicals. I will continue my quest for answers as to why this happened to me by continuing to contact every resource available, repeatedly until someone investigates my story, be it a Government agency or the media. If you can advise and assist me as to how I can and file a criminal complaint of perjury and contempt against this councilman/neighbor without the assistance of the County Attorney I will anxiously proceed to do so. If I can only access the State criminal court system though the County Attorney then I want to file a Federal complaint against the County Attorney and local law enforcement officers for violating my Constitutional Rights, intentional negligence, official misconduct and any other charges that may apply. I have over 400 documents of evidence that prove what I am claiming is completely true, due to the fact that this criminal attack on me has been ongoing and continuous beginning in 2005. I am also requesting to correspond with only 1 investigator because I am very timid and it is very difficult for me to speak openly with a complete stranger. The documents and photos evidence is contained in an several 3 ring binders by date of event. I have a couple basic questions I would like to know if you have ever heard other cases similar to what I have experienced. For instance the EPA field investigator advised me that what the City did with chemicals to an easement in the manner in which was done to my property was “unheard of”.
A couple questions for you. Have you ever hear of a case in which when I contacted the county attorney in requesting that I wanted to file a contempt of court charge against the opposing party in a civil trial his response was “I frankly don’t care what Judge ____. ruled”. 
Have you ever know of a case in which a pastor went to City Hall to pay on my water bill her payment was not accepted.  She was told that the payment have to come out of my pocket. She expressed to me that she became irate when she was told that. She stated that she recognized at that time the degree of oppression I had suffer. She was treated so disrespectful, absolutely unacceptable behavior of the City officials. 
Please, I believe my case is the most brutal and vicious that has ever occurred in the Country. If you can find one that is comparable I desperately need to see it. I am sure I will find comfort knowing that I am not the only person that has suffered severely at the hands of local government officials extreme continuous criminal, unethical and immoral behavior. These are dangerous individual capable of causing  the death of another human being. I don’t know if I can handle the emotional turmoil inside of me. At what point does a person decide his only option is the 2nd amendment. How can you help me get justice for the crimes committed against me?  
I have evidence of numerous serious criminal and unethical acts against me. The following describes the most physically and mentally damaging. This was an act of domestic terrorism. I have been advised by the State Attorney Generals office that they can only get involved in a case if a case is referred to them by the County Attorney. I believe anyone has the right to investigate my local government officials. I believe the Government has the duty to investigate citizens being oppressed and violated of their given rights.I am requesting an investigation based on my evidence and witnesses that support my allegations. It will shock those who have no conscience. An investigation by a reputable National media source could certainly be embarrassing to the Government. The evidence that this chemical is toxic and was also unlawfully applied by the City comes from an investigation by EPA. Evidence supporting other offenses including arson, knowingly making false statements, defamation, harassment, perjury, contempt and document fraud. All of which are by admission of the offender and indisputable. The witnesses on my behalf being immediate family members or fellow law enforcement officers. The repercussions have proven to be severe to those who have attempted to speak on my behalf. This County has a history of corruption that has only been exposed by outside sources. I believe my life could be in danger.   
In May 2005 my neighbor applied chemicals to my property without my knowledge. I then advised him and law enforcement that I had developed a rash and did not want anything applied to my property. I requested an incident report from the police officer. The officer would not give me an incident report or file a complaint against this man on my behalf. The officer stated that he did not want to make the councilman/neighbor mad. He continued to apply chemicals to my property on a regular basis throughout the summer. My rash progressed to a full body skin disorder, causing me to repeatedly seek medical attention at the ER. The pain and suffering was excruciating. I continue to suffer extreme mental anguish because the officer would not intervene. He presented an incident report in Sept. stating that he could not remember what my complaint was in reference to. I told him that I wanted a report based on my initial complaint. A week later he gave me a report with the relevant information. The officer failed to protect my right to enjoy my property. The officer failed to provide me equal protection of the law. That officer was forced to resigned due to unrelated unethical behavior, The new officer hired by the City continued the same type of behavior. The neighbor continued to apply chemicals to my property. My skin disorder continue to progress. I could not work, I could not function. I could not control my emotions. I could not bear to wear clothes. I was in severe pain 24/7. The new officer advised me that I should move. A civil court ruled against the neighbor citing my Constitution Right to enjoy my own property.  The neighbor acting in contempt continued to apply chemicals to my property with no concern of being held accountable. I did sell my home and business in an unsuccessful to date effort to regain any quality of life. I have always been of the opinion that it was the actions of the councilman/neighbor that caused injury to me. But it is the liability of the City and County Attorney due to the intentional negligence. Do you agree that this is a matter of violation of my Constitutional rights? There exists a conflict of interest between the County Attorney and the City preventing any contempt of court proceedings. The evidence and witnesses I have prove without a doubt my allegations. I have been constantly harassed and my complaints ignored. My character has been defamed and these authorities have knowingly made false statements from the beginning of this nightmare,. My allegations are absolutely outrageous but completely true and provable. I have lived in a state of terror with no protection of the law. There has been no investigation into my allegations. In fact, if any outside source would give me the benefit of the doubt and review my evidence and question my witnesses they might conclude that there needs to be more oversight and criminal prosecution of local government authorities. I contacted many of you previously when I was clearly in a state of despair and there was no response. Perhaps I was not clear with my explanation of what had transpired. I had severely impaired eyesight that hampered my ability to communicate adequately for an extended period of time. Unfortunately the corrective surgery has not been completely successful and the I can not get further medical attention until April.  I have contacted every State Government resource available, with no response regarding my request into an  investigation of my evidence. Some one needs to be the hero here. I am a victim and a witness of serious criminal acts by local government authorities. I can understand now how a person can be so personally violated, beg for help, be ignore, lose control, labeled as deranged to satisfy the public the facts never disclosed to the public. That in my opinion is a tragedy. I will continue to this forum as my weapon for justice until the day I die. Do not dismiss me as crazy until you review my evidence.  Please respond.sincerely,
Melody Boatner

Recently there was an imposter sent to my home perpetrating an FBI agent. The intent was for him to review the hard copy evidence I have supporting my allegation. He arrived advising me that he had no intention of reviewing any hard copy evidence. He ordered me to verbally tell him the story. I advised him that it was not possible to tell this story because it is to complex. I had the option of verbally telling him or I suppose he would have left with nothing. He gave me 2 1/2 hours to attempt to tell the facts of a case of pubic corruption that had gone on for years. That same day two hours later I received in the mail a letter from FBI Washington, DC. The letter stated that the imposter agent had determined no violation of Federal law had occurred. The letter was signed by J.C. Hacker. This letter was obviously was based on a fraudulent investigation. Predetermined by the imposter that came to my home. He admitted that he had been given verbal information that came from the County Sheriff. He somehow was so professional that he believed the fabricated story of a know dirty cop over my story. He had the opportunity to review the evidence himself. He knew if he had followed procedure for investigations he would have no option but to bring criminal charges against these corrupt local officials. So where the hell is justice in this. This only expanded the conspirators violating my Constitutional Rights. Deprivation of Rights under color of law, Discrimination, Fraud, and I guess these people want me to commit a crime to get a response from them. What crime would it be to force someone to defend themselves by taking up arms? Do they think I am just going to walk away and let this psychopath have my assets? Hell no I am not. There are laws that protect citizens from trespassing. Criminal laws, laws that force compliance to court order, contempt of court. Glyphosate is a poison, I was intentionally expose to this toxic chemical by my local public officials. What the hell are public corruption laws written for if not to protect the rights of the citizens. Statute of limitations does not apply in cases of torture. Domestic terrorism is real.

The Limits of American Destructiveness

US foreign policy has always been directed at wrecking anything that wasn’t deemed sufficiently American and replacing it with something more acceptable—especially if that something allowed wealth to flow into the US from the outside. Compromises were reserved for the USSR, but even there the Americans constantly tried to cheat. For everyone else there was just submission, which was usually tactfully disguised as a positive—a seat at the big table which offered better chances for peace, prosperity and economic and social development.

Of course, it was a simple enough matter to pierce this veil of hypocritical politeness and to point out that the US, living far beyond its means, has only managed to survive by looting the rest of the world, but anyone who dared to do so would be ostracized, sanctioned, regime-changed, invaded and destroyed—whatever it took.

Complaint, violation of Constitutional Rights

I have contacted you on several occasions and have yet to get a legitimate response. The fact that I have not had the ability to speak with one individual about my case is unnerving. Here is what happened prior to the FBI and the US Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa got involved in my case.​​​​​

​​​ conspirators​​

At this point it was clear that these people were conspiring against my Constitutional Rights. It does not take a law degree to reasonably access this to be supported by the evidence​. As well as the following violations of Federal law. Public corruption and civil rights

Corruption

In general terms, corruption cases arise when a local, state, or federal public official receives things of value in exchange for performing, or failing to perform, official acts contemplated by the authority of their position. The public grants authority to officials and, in return, is entitled to receive honest services from all who serve in the government. The prosecutors and professional staff in PCCRS prosecute officials – such as politicians, law enforcement officers, government executives, and correctional officers — who violate the public trust for the sake of self-enrichment.

Civil Rights

PCCRS also prosecutes individuals, whether they be private citizens or public officials, who criminally violate the constitutional rights of individuals. The use of excessive force by law enforcement under the color of law is an example of how public officials can violate an individual’s civil rights. Private individuals who commit violent crimes motivated by bias – commonly known as hate crimes — also violate federal civil rights laws. Hate crime laws recognize and defend the rights of all individuals, regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. 

ARTICLE XIV.

“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

The reasonable enjoyment of one’s real estate is certainly a vested right, which cannot be interfered with or limited arbitrarily. The constitutional guaranty of protection for all private property extends equally to the enjoyment and the possession of lands. An arbitrary interference by the government, or by its authority, with the reasonable enjoyment of private lands is a taking of private [728] property without due process of law, which is inhibited by the constitutions. But it is not every use which comes within this constitutional protection. One has a vested right to only a reasonable use of one’s lands. It is not difficult to find the rule which determines the limitations upon the lawful ways or manner of using lands. It is the rule, which furnishes the solution of every problem in the law of police power, and which is comprehended in the legal maxim, sic utere tuo, ut alienum non lædas. One can lawfully make use of his property only in such a manner as that he will not injure another. Any use of one’s lands to the hurt or annoyance of another is a nuisance, and may be prohibited. At common law that is a nuisance, which causes personal discomfort or injury to health to an unusual degree. As it has been expressed in a preceding section,1 the right of personal security against acts, which will cause injury to health or great bodily discomfort, cannot be made absolute in organized society. It must yield to the reasonable demands of trade, commerce and other great interests of society. While the State cannot arbitrarily violate the right of personal security to health by the unlimited authorization of acts which do harm to health, or render one’s residence less comfortable, there is involved in this matter the consideration of what constitutes a reasonable use of one’s property. At common law this is strictly a judicial question of fact, the answer to which varies according to the circumstances of each case. One is expected to endure a reasonable amount of discomfort and annoyance for the public good, which is furthered by the permission of trades and manufactures, the prosecution of which necessarily involves a certain amount of annoyance or injury to the inhabitants of the neighborhood. In all such cases, it is a question of equity, on whom is it reasonable to impose the burden of the inevitable loss, resulting from this clashing [729] of interests; and independently of statute it is strictly a judicial question, and all the circumstances of the case must be taken into consideration

18 U.S.C. § 229 – U.S. Code – Unannotated Title 18. Crimes and Criminal Procedure § 229. Prohibited activities

This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

​When I contacted the FBI division that is listed as covering my area I was in contact with SA Thomas Reinwart. It took over 14 months for Agent Reinwart to clear his schedule to come to my home for the specific ​purpose of reviewing my hard copy evidence. Reiwart arrived at my home. He advised me that he had no intention of reviewing any hard copy evidence. He advised me to verbally tell him this story. I advised him that it was not possible to verbally tell this story to anyone due to the complexity of the case. He gave me 2 1/2 hours of his time to attempt to hit on the particular violations of Federal law. Two and a half hours after SA Reinwart left my home I receive a letter in the mail from the FBI Washington Division. The letter stated that Agent Reinwart had determined that no violation of Federal law has occurred. The letter was signed by Deputy Assistant Director J.C. Hacker. Who I sent several certified letters to disputing that decision. It does not take a law degree to recognize that an investigation based on hearsay is an incompetent investigation. The general public understands that hearsay is not evidence.

Several weeks later I receive in the mail a letter from SA Reinwart stating that based on the information I told him and the information Sheriff Weber gave a third party, SA Jeff Huber he had determined no violation of Federal law had occurred. 

I requested Reinwart to disclose the information Sheriff Weber had given to the third party. Reinwart refused to disclose that information. I know that Sheriff Weber gave false information because he has never reviewed the hard copy evidence either. No authority has reviewed the evidence to date. Withholding evidence that was used to determine if a violation of Federal law has occurred further expands my allegation of conspiracy against rights. Hearsay is not admissible ​evidence. For Deputy Assistant Director J.C. Hacker to simply ignore the certified letters I sent to him with this information continues to violate my Constitutional Rights guaranteed by Federal law.

At some point during this time I am in contact with Assistant US Attorney Kevin VanderSchel.  VanderSchel advised me that he would not prosecute this case. He gave me three different reasons why he would not prosecute this case. With each excuse I submitted evidence that conflicted with what he was claiming. He clearly did not consider my case being relevant enough to review the evidence he did have in this case. His determination of the timeline of events was completely incorrect. He was attempting to claim the statute of limitations had expired. The evidence I sent him confirmed he was incorrect about that issue. The final and fourth time VanderSchel advised he would not prosecute this case was simply because he has attorney discretion and simply does not have to. 

I recognize private property rights are considered the most valuable citizen’s rights.  Apparently AUSA VanderSchel felt no shame knowing he was given false information that he was basing his first three reasons not to prosecute on. VanderSchel making a determination not to prosecute this case violates his oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.

I asked AUSA VanderSchel if he had the right to violate a civil court order. VanderSchel advised me that he does have that authority. AUSA VanderSchel knowingly made a false statement by advising me that he had that authority. To disregard a civil court order would in the least require a writ. Had that civil court order been complied to by the local officials initially I would not have suffered nearly the degree of damages that I have suffered at the hands of my Government. At no time has any written law been complied with by any government authority in this case.

My property was taken by use of chemical weapons with intent to eliminate me from my private property. There is no question about that. The evidence supports this to be a fact that is indisputable. SA Thomas Reinwart advised that there is no law against using chemical weapons against citizens. He advised me that terrorist laws only apply to individuals who support terrorists. If that is in fact the law. Then every individual who allowed and assisted my neighbor in using chemical weapons to eliminate me from my private property are in violation of that law.

I am not going to allow this story to be covered up, swept under the rug or accept anything less than my right to due process of the law. My rights under the 14th amendment, the 4th Amendment, the 5th Amendment and I expect those who have taken the oath to uphold the Constitution to prosecute those who have violated that same oath. 

I had requested an independent investigation through Congressman Dave Loebsack. I explained clearly the reasons stated above for an independent investigation. The memo must not have gotten through. I receive a letter from Deputy Assistant Calvin Shivers based on the false evidence given in the first letter from Deputy Assistant J.C. Hacker. I attempted to contact Shivers. I am sure he received my email with my concerns. My emails have never received a response 

This case is unprecedented. It would be few individuals who would have the lack of morals to use chemicals as a weapon against a fellow human being. In this case an entire group of government officials aided the chemical assault against me. That assault has resulted in chronic health problems that will be life long. I am against requesting an independent investigation based on the hard copy evidence supporting my allegations. The only evidence that has been considered in this case has been hearsay. It goes without saying that the citizens confidence in being able to take the word of any government official to be based on fact has been long gone. If its not admissible in court then its certainly not acceptable to determine if a Federal law has been violated.

I do expect a response to this letter in a timely fashion. Any disputes with the information contained in this letter can be confirmed by an honorable authority personally contacting me. The violations committed against me are in part based on sexual discrimination. I want and deserve and expect to be treated equally to any other citizen of the United States of America.


Question of the day. Why?

Why does a victim have to be diagnosed with cancer? Why wouldn’t intentional exposure to chemicals unlawfully applied to private property causing personal injury be enough to file a complaint against those who applied the chemicals, not according to label directions? 

D Is for a Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy

Truth

John W. Whitehead, Constitutional Attorney

“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business

What characterizes American government today is not so much dysfunctional politics as it is ruthlessly contrived governance carried out behind the entertaining, distracting and disingenuous curtain of political theater. And what political theater it is, diabolically Shakespearean at times, full of sound and fury, yet in the end, signifying nothing.

Played out on the national stage and eagerly broadcast to a captive audience by media sponsors, this farcical exercise in political theater can, at times, seem riveting, life-changing and suspenseful…

Statute of Limitations on torture? FBI refusing to address my concerns. #Bullshit #ViolationsofFederallaw #Iwillfistfightyourightnow

My local government officials used glyphosate unlawfully applied to my private property ongoing for over 5 years routinely. Their purpose was to eliminate me from my private property so one of their own could acquire my private property. This special protected citizen needed my private property or a court would have ordered him to remove the noncompliant structures from his new illegal property redevelopment. He purchased the non conforming lot from the mayor. The building administer issued fraudulent building permits for the illegal structures. After five years the affects the chemicals had on my skin were chronic severe skin condition. It was unbearable to wear clothes, I was blind and homeless for the following four years. My property was my largest investment as most other citizens. I traveled to Washington DC to change the laws allowing me to get out of poverty to acquire ownership of my property. This property not only contained my home but my business and my pursuit of happiness. I was denied any protection of the law. I made a complaint about the nuisance drainage issue caused by the illegal redevelopment and the building administrator refused his duty to address my concerns, he continued to issue fraudulent permits to this special resident. The structures were the size that would legally fit on an acre of ground. He tried to squeeze them onto a 70′ W X 300’L nonconforming lot. A civil court order citing my right to used my property as I wished I thought would stop the illegal exposure to glyphosate. It did nothing by make this neighbor and the government officials more aggressive in eliminating me from my private property. Senator Grassley requested two inquires into my case. The FBI would contact me he advised. After five years I contacted Grassley again and he put in another request, five more years pass and I am advised by Grassley to be patient. The FBI never contacted me as they are required to do. I reached out after ten years of severe suffering, my life forever changed from my plan for my own destiny, to the local FBI. This agent was so incompetent that it took 14 months for him to come to my now rental home. His purpose was specifically to review the hard copy evidence that proves without a doubt Federal law has been violated. He arrived advising me that he had no intention of reviewing my evidence. I could just tell him the story and he would take notes. He gave me 2 1/2 hours of his time to tell a story that was ongoing for well over ten years in violation of Federal law. He had three notes written on his pad when he left. Two hours after he left my home I receive in the mail a letter from Assistant Deputy Director JC Hacker a letter stating that the agent had determined no violation of Federal law had occurred. It is not possible for this incompetent agent to accomplish an investigation and have a decision in the mail from Washington DC two hours after he left my home. He never investigated financial records to discover a bribe had been taken. He never interviewed any witnesses on my behalf. He never followed standard procedure to assure my allegations were valid. This in itself is an act to deprive me of my rights under color of law. This is not acceptable by any government standard. My allegations are completely supported by the hard copy evidence. For anyone to claim that the statute of limitations has expired is ludacris. Any negligence has been intentional of the part of government officials who have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution and have the duty to hold corrupt government accountable for their violations of Federal law. I am one mad single middle aged female. Discrimination against housing has been committed by all levels of government and I am demanding that a full independent investigation be done. The evidence used was not based on facts. It was based on hearsay. I want compensated for the damages that have intentionally been done to me. This is not a joke. My father did not spend his military service in the South Pacific on a ship taking on bombs and kamikaze pilots for me or anyone else to be denied their freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

Letter to US Senator Charles Grassley and Congressman Dave Loebsack staff

My responses claim the statute of limitations has expired. I am requesting you go back through our previous correspondences and review what you have advised me of this entire time. You advised me to be patient that the FBI would contact me. I waited patiently as you advised for 5 years.  I contacted you again and you graciously submitted another request for an inquiry, advising me throughout the next 5 years to be patient, you said “it takes time”. The FBI never contacted me now for ten years. The FBI was negligent. The FBI had the responsibility to contact me.   When finally I contacted the local FBI myself, he him hawed around taking 14 months to come to my home specifically to review the hard copy evidence. Upon arrival he advised me that he was not going to review any documented evidence. He instead determined no federal law has been violated based on hearsay from the sheriff to a third party. I have evidence to prove the sheriff knowingly made false statements about what took place. I have evidence that proves the sheriff has a conflict of interest with the opposing party. That is why I asked for an independent investigation. I am not responsible for the statute of limitations expiring, in fact the statute has not expired considering the government’s negligence and fraudulent actions against me in the taking of my property without just compensation. I see no where the violation of the Federal bill of rights has an expiration date, in fact the 5th amendment states that private property is never to be taken without just compensation. Senator Grassley needs to demand an investigation into the negligence of the FBI in this case, I have never slacked off what I know to be the Federal government’s duty to prosecute corrupt public officials. Has a bribe been paid, no doubt. SA Thomas Reinwart refused to look into the financial record, interview witnesses or provide any type of competent investigation. Hearsay is not evidence, point blank. They say the lowest scoring agents of a graduating class are place in the areas of the lowest criminal events. I can only speculate that SA Reinwart was of the lowest scoring graduates. He knew when he arrived at my home the decision he was going to make based on hearsay as the sheriff had already given his false information to the third party.

Two hours after SA Reinwart left my home I received a letter in the mail from Wash DC headquarters that Reinwart had determined no violation of Federal law had occurred. It is not possible for him to come to my home, submit a report to Washington and had the determination sent back to my from Washington DC two hours after he left my home. This is a blatant violation of the public’s trust and only encourages local government that they can get away with crimes against humanity or any other violation guarantees of individual rights. It is not acceptable.

Senator Grassley would not approve of this type of behaviour from a Federal agent. My Constitutional Rights are just a relevant as those who violated those rights by the forceful taking of my private property using chemicals as a weapon. Please step up and demand the law to actively competently investigate the evidence and defend my individual rights as if they were your own.  This is not an option, Constitutional rights are mandatory to be upheld. The criminal offenses committed against me ar serious. From the issuing of the fraudulent building permits to the use of glyphosate that resulted in life long health effects I will suffer. Senator Grassley and Congressman Dave Loebsack please represent you constituents.

FEDERAL COORDINATION OF TITLE VI AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

Title VI:

A Powerful Tool to Address Discrimination and Advance Environmental Justice

“Title VI’s breadth of coverage is extensive and it can address a huge array of injustices: from environmental racism…to disparities in basic health care and basic services to inequities in transportation, housing, and education.”

August 19, 2010 Memorandum from the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights to the Federal Funding Agency Civil Rights Directors.

Environmental justice and Title VI are both rooted in the same basic principle that no person should bear an unfair share of harm on account of their race, color or national origin. At its core, Title VI requires recipients of federal funding to ensure that their programs operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. Indeed, the central tenet of environmental justice – that programs benefiting a community as a whole not disproportionately allocate their adverse environmental and health burdens – flows directly from this underlying principle of Title VI.

Where federally funded programs – like transportation agencies, state agencies responsible for environmental permitting, hospitals and health clinics, and countless others – affect human health or the environment, Title VI enforcement may resolve problems that other laws cannot.

Discriminatory Effects under Title VI. Most federal agencies have regulations implementing Title VI, which prohibit funding recipients from “utilizing criteria or methods of administration which have the effect of subjecting individuals to discrimination because of their race, color, or national origin….” See, e.g., 28 C.F.R. 42.104(b)(2) (DOJ regulations). This prohibition on unjustified discriminatory effects was first established nearly 50 years ago, just after passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. Individuals must turn to the administrative complaint process to secure the protections afforded by these regulations. Federal funding agencies play a vital enforcement role because individuals must turn to the administrative complaint process to secure the protections offered by these regulations. The Attorney General has directed federal agencies to fully utilize these provisions and the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights has emphasized the need for their vigorous enforcement. Federal agencies must recognize their crucial role in addressing discriminatory effects and work to further environmental justice though Title VI enforcement.

Intersection of Title VI and Environmental Justice. Many types of Title VI cases involve environmental justice issues and could be resolved through the administrative complaint process. Some factors to consider in determining whether specific situations raise environmental justice concerns include whether individuals, certain neighborhoods, or tribes:

  • Suffer disproportionately adverse health or environmental effects from pollution or other environmental hazards;
  • Suffer disproportionate risks or exposure to environmental hazards, or suffer disproportionately from the effects of past under-enforcement of state or federal health or environmental laws;
  • Have been denied an equal opportunity for meaningful involvement, as provided by law, in governmental decision making relating to the distribution of environmental benefits or burdens. (Example: permit processing and compliance activities)

Where a federally funded program may be responsible for these harms, a Title VI investigation may help determine whether  the harms have a discriminatory effect on persons identifiable by race, color, or national origin.

Federal Coordination of Title VI and Environmental Justice

The Department of Justice is charged by Executive Order 12250 with ensuring the government-wide consistent and effective enforcement of Title VI, which includes nondiscrimination in programs and activities that affect the environment and human health:

  • The Title VI Committee of the Federal Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice (EJ IWG), which is chaired by DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, acts as a resource to help agencies connect their civil rights enforcement responsibilities with their efforts to achieve environmental justice. In 2014, the EJ IWG launched its Title VI webpage with the goal of ensuring consistent enforcement of Title VI across the federal family and encouraging the use of this critical enforcement tool to address environmental justice issues. go.usa.gov/3BYf5
  • The Civil Rights Division’s Federal Coordination and Compliance Section runs a robust program of technical assistance and legal counsel to civil rights offices across the government. A significant part of the Division’s environmental justice work is providing targeted technical assistance to federal agencies that receive complaints alleging Title VI violations in programs that effect the environment and human health. The Division helps many agencies in addressing matters involving intentional discrimination as well as discriminatory effects in matters involving environmental permitting and enforcement, transit equity, municipal services, emergency management, access to federal benefits, and more. Read more about our Title VI Coordination Initiative here: go.usa.gov/3BYfV).
  • The newly launched Title VI training program for federal civil rights staff includes a segment on environmental justice. This training component emphasizes the ability of agencies that fund activities that affect human health and the environment to use their Title VI compliance efforts to achieve the environmental justice goals of Executive Order 12898.
  • The revised Title VI manual will be issued in 2015. The update will provide detailed guidance to agencies analyzing, among other issues, discriminatory treatment and discriminatory effects under Title VI. Over time, the manual will address the application of Title VI in a range of areas, including environmental justice, transportation equity, and school discipline.
  • DOJ’s public outreach on environmental justice issues has included moderating a panel on federal Title VI enforcement during the annual Environmental Justice Conference and Training Program held in Washington, D.C. as well as holding listening sessions to learn about various civil rights issues of concern from stakeholders.

Highlights of Agency Efforts to Advance Environmental Justice through Title VI Enforcement

Approximately 30 federal agencies investigate Title VI administrative complaints alleging discrimination in federally funded programs affecting human health or the environment. Additionally, many of those agencies publish annual environmental justice progress reports. Below we highlight several agencies’ Title VI enforcement activities involving environmental justice issues.

Department of Transportation. DOT has a well-established set of environmental justice (EJ) and Title VI policies, including the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) two companion circulars that help recipients understand and comply with environmental justice principles through both Title VI compliance and the environmental justice executive order. Notably, the Title VI circular requires, among other things, that certain recipients conduct an equity analysis of the impact on minorities of certain actions and decisions. Both circulars and related materials are available here.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) also directs recipients to address environmental justice issues in their federally funded activities. It is currently developing a number of resources, including the EJ Reference Guide, which is intended to be a resource for staff to ensure compliance with EJ requirements, and the EJ Booklet highlighting recent policy changes and initiatives. The Guide will aid staff and stakeholders in identifying and addressing disproportionately high and adverse effects of agency programs, policies and activities on minority populations and low-income populations. The Reference Guide clarifies existing requirements and is available to the public on the FHWA EJ website, and can be accessed under “Recent Updates” or “References.” The FHWA has also formed an EJ Workgroup, which includes other DOT modes, and collaborates with the National Highway Institute. The workgroup is developing an EJ Analysis Course as part of the EJ Reference Guide. In order to register for the webinar, participants external to US DOT will first need to request an account here, then register here. FHWA’s civil rights office has conducted a national Title VI Program webinar that includes a component on EJ requirements for state transportation agencies and monitoring responsibilities of FHWA Division offices.

DOT components also address environmental justice issues through investigation and resolution of Title VI complaints. For example, in one case, FTA found two cities in south Florida non-compliant with Title VI requirements when the cities failed to assess the potential adverse disparate impacts stemming from relocation of a trolley maintenance facility to a historically Black neighborhood. As a direct result of FTA’s involvement in the matter, city officials agreed to keep the facility near its current location. Read more here. Similarly, in another Title VI investigation, FHWA found that an Ohio city’s denial of expanded bus service to a large medical center, as well as other essential services, caused disproportionate harm to African Americans. The case ultimately resulted in the construction of three new bus stops. Read more here.

Environmental Protection Agency. In accordance with Title VI, EPA’s office of Civil Rights (OCR) maintains a program to ensure that recipients of Federal financial assistance from EPA do not operate their programs or activities  in a way that discriminates on the basis of race, color, or national origin, including on the basis of limited-English proficiency. Consistent with EPA’s ongoing efforts to strengthen its external civil rights compliance program, earlier this week OCR released a report that outlines its progress on specific deliverables related to Title VI compliance efforts, as a supplement to Plan EJ 2014.  Read the full report for more information about EPA’s accomplishments regarding specific Title VI deliverables over the past four fiscal years, including: OCR’s renewed commitment to (1) strategic management of its Title VI complaint docket; (2) successful resolution of complaints; and (3) settlement of significant Title VI matters.

In addition, this week OCR released a policy paper entitled “Issue Paper on the Role of Complainants and Recipients in the Civil Rights Complaints and Resolution Process.”  The purpose of this paper is to promote greater participation by complainants and recipients in the civil rights complaint and resolution process, including Title VI complaints, by clarifying existing practices and identifying opportunities for greater participation within that framework.

Several agencies’ civil rights offices, such as the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security, have committed to review environmental justice issues and allegations that arise in programs and activities they fund. To learn more about other federal agencies’ environmental justice and Title VI efforts, visit the home page of the Federal Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice here and its Title VI page here.

Public Corruption and Private Property Rights in Violation of Federal Law.

I have always been searching for a private attorney, clearly I do not have a retainer. My assets were unlawfully seized. Prior to this I could have gotten anything I desired on my excellent credit rating.  That being said this is why I believe the Feds have the duty to protect my Constitutional right to private property.

The Fourth Amendment protects Americans from “unreasonable searches and seizures” by the government. But the Supreme Court’s interpretation of “unreasonable” has varied over time. Some searches require warrants, but others do not. In general, the Fourth Amendment protects a person and their property from searches by the government wherever there is a “reasonable expectation of privacy.” For instance, trash that is still inside a person’s home is protected; trash sitting beside the street curb for pickup is not. In the age of the Internet, where so much personal information is shared over social media such as Facebook and Twitter, some people argue that privacy has become a myth. After the 9-11 attacks, Congress passed laws making it easier for the government to use such information when investigating terrorism. The Fifth Amendment protects the right to private property in two ways. First, it states that a person may not be deprived of property by the government without “due process of law,” or fair procedures. In addition, it sets limits on the traditional practice of eminent domain, such as when the government takes private property to build a public road. Under the Fifth Amendment, such takings must be for a “public use” and require “just compensation” at market value for the property seized. But in Kelo v. City of New London (2005), the Supreme Court interpreted public use broadly to include a “public purpose” of economic development that might directly benefit private parties. In response, many state legislatures passed laws limiting the scope of eminent domain for public use.

Rights content written by Linda R. Monk, Constitutional scholar

My property was illegally seized by local government officials. Any control of use of my private property was violated by my neighbor and the local government officials. Unlawfully assaulting me with chemical weapons with the intent of eliminating me from my property is an act of terrorism resulting in torture, that I can testify to and the evidence supports. There is no other side to this story, I am fully disclosing the evidence that supports my allegations are factual.

Public corruption involves a breach of public trust and/or abuse of position by federal, state, or local officials and their private sector accomplices. By broad definition, a government official, whether elected, appointed or hired, violates federal law when he/she asks, demands, solicits, accepts, or agrees to receive anything of value in return for being influenced in the performance of their official duties. One of the most high-profile forms of public corruption is bribery of a public official. Title 18 of the U.S. Code, Section 201 provides the statutory framework for bribery prosecutions. Federal legislators are continuing to work on legislation that increases penalties for public corruption and that attempts to close loopholes created by previous legislation. Ethics violations occur at all levels of government (local, state, and federal) and includes allegations of judicial, legislative, regulatory, contract, and law enforcement corruption. Law enforcement corruption accounts for more than one-third of the current corruption investigations. These cases typically involve law enforcement officers accepting money to protect (or facilitate) drug-trafficking and organized criminal activity. Breaches of the public trust can impact everything, from how well our borders are secured and our neighborhoods protected, to verdicts handed down in courts of law, to the quality of our roads and schools. Public corruption is one of the FBI’s top investigative priorities—behind only terrorism, espionage, and cyber crimes. Federal cases of public corruption are prosecuted by the Department of Justice. Individual states also prosecute cases of public corruption, including charges of bribery, receiving unlawful gratuities, and misuse of confidential information. Private criminal defense lawyers often specialize in either state or federal cases. State court penalties for public corruption range from six months in prison and a $1,000 for misdemeanor misuse of confidential information to a prison term of 8 years and up to a $250,000 fine for felony bribery. A federal offense can likewise garner serious penalties, which may include thousands of dollars and/or time in federal prison.                                                                         

Private criminal defense attorneys are hired by those who are accused of crimes regarding public corruption, not the victims of public corruption. In this case the State attorney for Lee County, Iowa discriminated against me, he had an existing conflict of interest. He refused to prosecute this neighbor for criminal trespassing (in violation of a civil court order) He criminally charged me multiple times with fabricated laws. Laws that do not exist. The city clerk also altered city ordinances specifically for my in the best interest of this neighbor/council member. She committed document fraud multiple times. She never even got reprimanded. Fraud is a criminal offense. This clerk actually got a title of higher authority for the crimes she committed against me.

This is an unprecedented case. There is no other case in which chemicals have been used to eliminate a citizen from their own private property.  https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/10o7BgegCaQc5BVIqEabn4KD_9fBbjaf2Xb6TP6F7iX4/edit?usp=sharing

Selective Prosecution as determined by AUSA Kevin VanderSchel in a case that private property was taken by criminal offenses committed by local government officials.

Selective Prosecution

Criminal prosecution based on an unjustifiable standard such as race,

 religion, or other

Abitrary classification.

Selective prosecution is the enforcement or prosecution of criminal laws against a particular class of persons and the simultaneous failure to administer criminal laws against others out-side the targeted class. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that selective prosecution exists where the enforcement or prosecution of a Criminal Law is “directed so exclusively against particular class of persons … with a mind so unequal and oppressive” that the administration of the criminal law amounts toa practical denial of Equal Protection of the law (United States v. Armstrong, 517 U.S. 456, 116 S. Ct. 1480, 134 L. Ed. 2d687 [1996], quoting yick wo v. hopkins, 118 U.S. 356, 6 S. Ct. 1064, 30 L. Ed. 220 [1886]). Specifically, police and prosecutors may not base the decision to arrest a person for, or charge a person with, a criminal offense based on “an unjustifiable standard such as race, religion, or other arbitrary classification” (United States v. Armstrong, quoting Oyler v. Boles, 368 U.S.448, 82 S. Ct. 501, 7 L. Ed. 2d 446 [1962]).

Selective prosecution is a violation of the constitutional guarantee of equal protection for all persons under the law. On the federal level, the requirement of equal protection is contained in the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S.Constitution. The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment extends the prohibition on selective prosecution to the states. The equal protection doctrine requires that persons in similar circumstances must receive similar treatment under the law.

Selective prosecution cases are notoriously difficult to prove. Courts presume that prosecutors have not violated equal protection requirements, and claimants bear the burden of proving otherwise. A person claiming selective prosecution must show that the prosecutorial policy had a discriminatory effect and that it was motivated by a discriminatory purpose. To demonstrate a discriminatory effect, a claimant must show that similarly situated individuals of a different class were not prosecuted. For example, a person claiming selective prosecution of white Protestants must produce evidence that shows that white Protestants were prosecuted for a particular crime and that persons outside this group could have been prosecuted but were not.

The prohibition of selective prosecution may be used to invalidate a law. In Yick Wo v. Hopkins, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a San Francisco ordinance that prohibited the operation of laundries in wooden buildings. San Francisco authorities had used the ordinance to prevent Chinese from operating a laundry business in a wooden building. Yet

the same authorities had granted permission to eighty individuals who were not Chinese to operate laundries in wooden buildings.Because the city enforced the ordinance only against Chinese-owned laundries, the Court ordered that Yick Wo, who had been imprisoned for violating the ordinance, be set free.

Are private property right Federally protected rights?

I have asked this question before and have gotten few responses. I can only take the silence of opinions as a “yes” private property rights are Federally protected. I have been advised to get a private attorney. I want to ask why would I need a private attorney when a violation of Federal law is to be investigated and prosecuted by the Federal authorities.

One other question I previously asked was, “does an AUSA have the authority to violate a civil court order with no type of court proceeding”? Again I have to assume that the silence of opinions would concur “no”. An AUSA does not have the right to use attorney discretion to violate a civil court order.

So I understand that the Federal authorities have knowingly made false statements to me. An investigation cannot be concluded using hearsay evidence, and private property cannot be taken without just compensation, as that is a violation of Federal law.

SA Calvin Shivers signed the letter stating that a prior investigation had determined no violation of Federal law has occurred, Shivers has not contacted me, he has avoided me. Why wouldn’t a Federal officer want the facts about any case before he would sign a letter based on hearsay. Have some dignity to you position officers. You are employeed to represent the citizens, not the blue wall of silence. Seems like a bunch of cowards if confronted individually. I have some facts that need to be reviewed and until I am confident the facts have been reviewed I will continue to defend my right to be protected from harm. There are many violations of Federal law that have occurred at the hands of my local government officials. The fact that hearsay was taken as evidence and that hearsay was given no less than from a law enforcement imposter is more reason to question the honesty of this law enforcement officer, I have already submitted clear evidence that this cop has a conflict of interest with the party that used chemical weapons to force me from my property.  They have taken everything I owned. My home, business, property and health. They have taken any quality of life I had planned for my golden years. There is no doubt that Federal laws have been violated. I do not expect anyone to offer an opinion as to why the Feds would not be the proper agency to prosecute, ssshhh don’t expose public corruption, it only a pr tactic on their website. This government would not exist and thrive without a supporting group of thieves protecting self serving colleagues. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com

Ignorance of the Law is no excuse. Intentional serious injury at the hands of my government officials. What is your intent?

Well I can testify that the chronic skin condition resulting from intentional exposure to glyphosate for an extended period of time is once again seriously severe. I have never been prescribed a higher dose of methotrexate and had the condition to become increasingly severe. I am at the point now that it is unbearable to wear shoes. This pain and severe itching is 24/7. To know that an FBI agent claims to have done and investigation and has found no violation of Federal law based of hearsay stated by the County sheriff to a third party is about to piss me off more than I have ever been pissed on. SA Thomas Reinwart has proven to be incompetent and not qualified to investigate my case. He does not have the knowledge that every reasonable American takes for granted. He does not know that private property rights are Federally protected. His ignorance has proven he had no business being involved in my case that encompassed in violations of Federal laws. His ignorance and incompetence is going to have significant effects to the outcome of this case. Who to whom it may concern that has a connection be it by a third party or via any damn way, needs to extend this message to a high authority. FBI Agent Calvin Shivers signed the most recent letter stating that they have determined no violation of Federal law has occurred, he has completely avoided any contact with me. Tell him he is participating in a crime that is causing serious physical injury to an American citizen. He is knowingly refusing to protect me from harm based on fabricated information. He being the most recent signator of a letter that further violates my individual rights. Has made the choice to protect the blue wall of silence. Do not send any law enforcement to my home, inquiring as to whether I have threatened anyone. Send them to those who have repeatedly attempted to murder me using chemical weapons. It’s in everyone’s best interest. Get these maniacs that have proven to be a danger to society off the streets before they do kill an innocent human being!

Dead End

This Agent does not recognize that using chemicals as a weapon unlawfully applied to my property is in violation of my Federally protected private property rights.

Subject: Letter from J.C.Hacker

Thomas

I am attaching my most recent correspondence with I had with you. I received the letter from FBI JC Hacker yesterday. I searched for this individual and there is no person named JC Hacker listed as an FBI assistant director or anywhere else for that matter. Please explain, as there seems to be a conflict between the two letters.

Regarding the evidence I have sent you clearly shows that the continuing unlawful application of toxic chemicals to my property violates my Federal right to enjoy my property. The fact that the unlawful application of toxic chemicals to my property constitutes a criminal offense of trespassing. Denying my right to file a criminal complaint against this trespasser by the City of Montrose police dept, and the Lee County Attorney clearly violates my Federal right to equal protection of the law. The evidence I have sent you supports two or more people working together to violate my Federal rights to privacy and equal protection supports a conspiracy.

My request for a behavioral analysis is reasonable, who in sound mind continues a criminal act (trespassing in this case) knowing the person that owns the property the chemicals are being applied to believes the chemicals are causing severe health problems? Whose duty is it to protect those rights? Local law enforcement has the duty to protect the rights of the citizens from criminal acts perpetrated against them. In this case intentional acts perpetrated against me.

Who has the duty to assure compliance to State of Iowa building and drainage code? The appointed building administrator. In this case multiple counts of fraud have been committed not only the fraudulent building permits but also the document fraud and fabricated city ordinance perpetrated by the city clerk. Fraud also falling into the criminal offense category. The FBI holds public corruption as of highest priority, including conflict of interest. In this case a conflict of interest is relevant between every actor participating in the personal attack against me and my property.

Apparently you do not agree with my allegations, please explain what it is that I am not understanding as a violation of Federal law.

Regards,

Melody Boatner

There is not a conflict.  Thus far, there does not appear to be any Federal criminal law violations which have occurred.  Although there may be some local or state criminal and or civil law(s) which may have violated, we do not investigate those activities.  As previously stated in my email with you,

“You have previously written on numerous occasions explaining you have an abundance of evidence to support your claims of the criminal violations you have researched.  Please bring that information to explain and substantiate your allegations.”

Again, we will not provide any type of profiler or behavioral analysis for you.  This is not going to continue to be debated via email.  I am giving you the opportunity to provide any material you feel has not been provided/explained by you to us in the past to substantiate your allegations.
