Waco, and the evolving discovery process


, ,

Mark Twain once wrote that “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

That is precisely the issue in Waco. Within hours of the shootings, Sgt. Swanton could barely conceal his glee in announcing that the Texas bikers didn’t come to Twin Peaks to eat Bar-B-Que and have a cold drink. Oh, no sirree Buffalo Bob. We haven’t seen the good Sgt. Patrick in a good while, have we? All speculation, but could it be that he let on maybe a little bit too much in terms of how sausage is made when he added during an early presser: “At least some of the bikers involved were shot by police.” Feel safer yet, Murica?

Some day, we WILL look at this event and say to ourselves, “Justice was finally served.” Unfortunately, that day is not today. In a tired and rather sickening game of narrative keep-away, Judge Matt Johnson of the 54th District Court, McLennan County Texas today allowed that yes, the Twin Peaks video may be released to Defendant and his legal counsel, but also issued a “gag order” forbidding them to speak to anyone else about it. To find a basis for this ruling, Judge Johnson said he didn’t want the jury pool to be tainted. Tainted? Hell judge it’s been poisoned and napalmed by the quickly unravelling and flexible narrative of the WPD.

What is “Discovery?”

Discovery, in the law of the United States and other countries, is a pre-trial procedure in a lawsuit in which each party, through the law of civil procedure, obtains evidence from the other party or parties by means of discovery devices such as a request for answers to interrogatories, request for production of documents, video, request for admissions and depositions. Discovery can be obtained from non-parties using subpoenas. When a discovery request is objected to, the requesting party may seek the assistance of the court by filing a motion to compel discovery. (1)

Art. 39.14 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of Texas has regulated discovery in criminal cases.

Under Subsection h:

The state shall disclose to the defendant any exculpatory, impeaching, or mitigating document, item, or information in the possession, custody, or control of the State that tends to negate the guilt of the defendant or would tend to reduce the punishment for the offense charged.

Further, each prosecutor is charged under Texas Code of Criminal Procedure art. 2.01 “not to convict, but to see that justice is done.” What you rarely hear quoted is the next sentence: “They shall not suppress evidence or secrete witnesses capable of establishing the innocence of the accused.”  This DUTY to seek justice rather than convictions includes setting the innocent free—and it has been this way for decades.

Unless the fix is hopelessly in (and that’s a real possibility) the next step is a Writ of Mandamus. Mandamus is a judicial remedy in the form of an order from a superior court, to any government subordinate court, or public authority—to do some specific act which that body is obliged under law to do —and for whatever reason that entity is refusing. (2)

Here’s an example: https://lintvkxan.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/2015_05_28_15_42_01.pdf

The sooner the legal theater for this mess gets out of Waco & McLennan County, the better. Because, well “jury pool.”

I refuse to be divided by the manipulation of politicians, schemers, activists and con-artists who train themselves in the dark arts of division and deceit for benefit.

I refuse to be divided.

  • There have been openly gay people in my community throughout my lifetime – I have never been in conflict with them.
  • There have been people of every ethnicity in my community throughout my entire lifetime – I have never been in conflict with them.

None of the aforementioned categories of division-inspired personage are predisposed to a lesser understanding of virtue than I.

ENTER — SB754, Texas Legislature 2015

1. SB 754 was signed into law by Gov Abbot on 6/16/2015, and becomes law in the State of Texas effective Sept 1, 2015.
There are roughly 450,000 motorcycles registered in the State of Texas. 450k x $3 x 10 years. I’m no math nerd but I’m guessing that’s a lot of money. Enough to get some folks attention, such as the Texas DPS who now would have oversight on that portion of their budget. I’m told the odds against passage were somewhere in the Mr Ed winning the Preakness neighborhood.

1af-txcoc-6239933012757213_n   <

Yet- against long odds, it was passed in the Texas House and Senate with only 2 dissenting votes! A monumental victory for the Texas COC. Umm, yeah THAT Texas COC, the criminal organization the good Sargent from WPD keeps verbally skewering. That one.

2. Check the Witness List for April 22, which was just before the bill was debated:


waco witness list
Notice the namesOwen Bartlett. Mike Lynch. Sandra Lynch. Paul Landers. Sound familiar? If you’re keeping score at home those 4 folks were also arrested during the Waco debacle, and were unbelievably incarcerated and placed under $1 Million bond.

3. Notice ALSO that CFO Denise Hudson & Maj. Jason Hester – employees of Texas DPS and ergo the state of Texas- were both scheduled to testify, and lobby against passage of this bill. Front and center, this presents a rather serious ethics dilemma: Did Ms Hudson and/or Mr Hester do any of this whilst on State time? Because if they did, it would be, well, illegal. Lilbit. Check the provisions of Texas Government Code chapter 556 which specifically prohibit influencing legislation except on personal time. Perhaps a FOIA request of the employeee logs for that day might be in order.

Texas Confederation of Clubs & Independents – a primer.


, ,

1. The Texas Confederation of Clubs is divided into 12 regions, which you can see here    –>   US Defenders    Texas COC    1af-txcoc-6005877344_n

It is an organization that lobbies on behalf of motorcycle rights, and disseminates information concerning local events related to the motorcycle community. A Motorcycle Club (aka – MC) may join Texas COC by paying dues of $100 per year, and having their patch (aka ‘cuts’ or ‘colors’) approved unanimously by representatives of all the other member clubs. Usually that is a fairly easy process. A hundred bucks per year is roughly 2 months of gym membership and for the life of me I can’t think of any non-motorcycle clubs, such as Kiwanas, Rotory, or, say, the Masons that would be cheaper. Some of the expenses of COC would be in the area of lobbying, legal assistance and the acquisition of meeting space. At any given meeting, there may be something along the order of 300-500 bikers in attendance, representing 20 to 30, perhaps even more MC’s. There are also many Riding Clubs (RC’s) and Riding Groups (RG’s) that are regular and welcomed attendees. Additionally, many others are “independent” i.e., they aren’t in any MC at all but show anyway and have always been made more than welcome.


These COC groups meet generally every 2 months, meaning that in any given year there would be about 72 regularly scheduled meetings statewide.

Texas Confederation of Clubs is not a new organization. They are well known to the State’s legislators, the Governor, police, and media- one of the many reasons that this whole ‘criminal organization’ meme is as frustrating as is is wrong. For example, recently, they lobbied successfully against HB 2918, which would’ve made it illegal to film, record, photograph, or document police actions, including recording your own interactions with the police- a direct violation of your Constitutional Rights.

Pay particular attention at 0:32 and 1:20 – Paul Landers and Sandra Lynch. Remember those names?

3. Ergo, the assertion by the Waco PD that this is a “Criminal Organization” is hereby completely, utterly smashed to ruins. Pure, unadulterated propaganda – this time it comes with a conservative and NEOCON twist but it’s propaganda nonetheless. And the Waco Tribune. Please. It’s sort of a symbiotic relationship. They will never, ever cross a certain line. Evah. They will never point out the failures of the police or the patently absurd level of corruption existing within city and county officials. In laymen’s terms, they won’t “narc” on their neighbors. Even some citizens of Waco think its a lot more fun to think everyone is on their side. News flash, Sugarbear: They are not. It’s the old us against them sports team mentality. Maybe it is GOOD for business, but as a journalist, or prosecutor, or citizen for that matter, one should always seek the truth, no matter who it hurts or helps.


An Eyewitness Account of the Waco Biker Massacre


The most cogent thesis I’ve heard to date. It sure beats the bilge belching from the tailpipe of Waco PD. Basic premise still stands: The cops took a bad situation and poured napalm all over it.

Around 11 o’clock on May 17, 2015, many bikers were gathering in the Twin Peaks restaurant for their regularly scheduled Confederation of Clubs Meeting. There was not an over abundance of Bandidos there, and in fact most of the other clubs had just as many attendees if not more. Nothing was out of the ordinary beyond the fact that they were secretly surrounded by SWAT teams and cops. Note there are very few uniforms in the photos. less than ten Bandidos were there just hanging out, probably eating lunch. Cossacks started rolling in… This was the first time this has ever happened. They kept coming until there was around a hundred of them. A little after 12, some more Bandidos rolled in, less than ten of them. They were surrounded by Cossacks in the parking lot. An altercation ensued and the Bandidos were fighting them off with their hands and…

You might find this interesting.   We continue to look at resource avenues to unearth the factual story of what took place in Waco Texas at the Twin Peaks restaurant.  Toward that end we reached out to a local reporter covering the entire story with some general communication and questions.

As a result of that contact the following excerpt is direct from them (emphasis mine):

…[…] Also, to be clear, according to my research, 18 PD officers were on scene but only 4 fired weapons. All of those officers are considered “involved”, even without having fired.

waco 8So the number of officers who are on administrative leave, pending customary investigation, includes more than just those who participated in the shots being fired.

Waco Spokesperson W. Patrick Swanton was previously quoted as stating:

Cultural Marxism 101……



Cultural Marxism –A form of Marxism which began with political correctness, multiculturalism and “anti-racism.” Samuel P. Huntington maintained that Cultural Marxism is an anti-white ideology. Unlike traditional Marxism that focuses on economics, Cultural Marxism focuses solely on culture and argues that all human behavior is a result of culture & ergo often creates victim status. Cultural Marxists deny the biological reality of gender and race and argue that gender and race are “social constructs”. As a consequence, Cultural Marxists support the race-based identity politics of non-whites. Cultural Marxists support race-based affirmative action, the non-traditional state (as opposed to a nation rooted in common ancestry), elevating non-Western religions above Western religions, speech codes and censorship, multiculturalism, diversity training, anti-Western education curricula, mal-adaptive sexual norms and anti-male feminism, the dispossession of white people, and mass Third World immigration into Western countries.


The Most Heartbreaking Story Yet From the Waco Massacre


Truly an injustice- heartbreaking.

She was afraid to tell him she has a disabled child.. but when she did, he said “I loved you since junior high.. I’m not going to stop now.”

Her crisp efficient voice fades into a dreamy sigh as she describes how this amazing man rode into her life like a white knight on a chrome horse. The first time Payden, her non verbal son, met Bobby, he immediately reached for him, threw his arms around his…

Not Out of the Woods… A Waco Wife Tells a Tragic Story In Her Own Words


One of those arrested and currently on a $1 million bond. Talk about a false-flag event, the whole Waco narrative will eventually fall apart.

Originally posted on :


Kate Woods tells a story so compelling that I am not even going to touch this. This is the story of the Los Caballeros MC members in jail in Waco due to the May 17th shooting. From what I can see, this is a club of mostly disabled veterans? No criminal backgrounds showing up on these vets, either, unless you count the American Legion as a gang?

Mike is a disabled veteran. He spent 21 and a half years in the military. He deployed to Iraq and didn’t lose a single soldier there, he brought them all home safe. He enjoyed being in the military, but he felt that his time was at an and there. However, he sorely missed the comradery. So, he joined the American Legion Riders. Friends of his were members of ‘Los Caballeros.” This is not a criminal or 1%er Club in any way. their name translates…
