Hate Crimes and Federal Troops in Chicago: Part 2

Listen to the audio here:

Welcome back to the second hour of the KrisAnne Hall show. So glad to have you with us today, on this wonderful liberty Saturday. So exciting for us to be together to learn about liberty and to learn how to communicate that liberty with each other. You are not wrong to stand by principle and demand principle. When we sacrifice liberty at the altar of pragmatism, nobody wins. It is the slow degrees by which liberty is always taken, and we must be a people who are more willing to say, “Hey, I will stand on principles, because in the end it only matters where I stand.” And as we stand on principle I want to talk to you about something today that I don’t know if it’s getting enough talk. I’m not seeing it much in the media world; the mainstream media world, and I’m not really seeing a lot of it in the Facebook posts and that, around the constitutional conservative liberty forums. Maybe it’s because it’s a bit confusing, but nonetheless, what we’re gonna talk about is Senate Resolution 118. Senate Resolution 118’s title says,

“A resolution condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States.”

As a person who knows history; has an acquaintance with history; has an acquaintance with free speech and how that stuff works, this title really, really makes some alarm bells go off for me. For “animus targeting a minority in the United States.” I just; I wonder, how do we protect certain classes of people above other classes of people, and maintain the understanding of equal protection under the law? I also wonder, because this is a resolution, is that perhaps why it’s not getting a lot of airplay?

Normally resolutions don’t mean anything; they’re just the senate or the house giving their opinion. It is not law, okay, so let’s just be clear; this is not a law, limiting free speech; this is not a law defining free speech; this is not a law invoking new hate crimes, okay. So this is not a law, this is a resolution. Generally speaking, resolutions are just legislative bodies offering up their opinion. Resolution for this, resolution for that; this is what we believe. And it starts off that way:

“This resolution condemning hate crime, and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States.”

You know, as I keep saying that title over and over again, I really believe it’s that word “animus” that bothers me the most. Animus. I mean, it’s like a four dollar word, nobody really – how many people use that word anymore? But, you look it up. An animus is a “hostility or ill feeling.”  I’m rather disturbed that we have now brought animus into the realm of hate crime in the minds of legislators. Animus. I harbor an ill feeling toward someone which is now in the same thought process as hate crime, by those who are writing laws. I really think, now that I sort of talk about this, it is the word animus; it is so vague; nondescript. And it rings of “thought police” – as if hate crime isn’t a matter of “thought police” to begin with, but I mean, seriously. Animus; it’s just not a very solid, descript word. It deals with feelings and, not even just hatred – it’s just an ill feeling.

Maybe I have an ill feeling towards you because I don’t like you. What if you happen to be a person that is defined by our legislator as a minority group? Does my dissatisfaction with your personality inadequacies make me now guilty of a hate crime? I don’t know.

So, it begins off as a resolution where; it always says whereas, whereas, whereas, whereas, whereas; whereas what in the past is making us think this way; what is happening now that makes us think this way? So, let’s go through these “whereas” because this is pretty general, standard kind of stuff for a resolution.

“Whereas, in the past several years, violent crimes, threats of violence, and other incidents of hate-motivated targeting of religious, racial, and ethnic minorities have increased across the United States.”

Would that apply to the federal government? Are they talking about Federal Department of Justice targeting Christians? Would that be the federal government targeting people for their certain religious beliefs? I’m just wondering, is this is a general statement, for the general public, or is this just for people, and not for government?

“Whereas in 2015, hate crimes targeting Muslims in the United States increased by 67 percent, reaching a level of violence targeting Muslim Americans, that in the United States had not experienced since the aftermath of September 11, 2001 attacks, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation;

Whereas in 2015 anti-Semitic incidents increased in the United States for the second straight year, according to the Anti-Defamation League;

Whereas in 2015, anti-Semitic incidents at institutions of higher education nearly doubled;

Whereas in 2015 among single-bias hate crime incidents in the United States, 59.2 percent of the victims targeted were racial, ethnic, or ancestry bias.”

Ancestry bias? Okay.

“And among those victims, 52.2 percent were victims of crimes motivated by their offender’s anti-Black or anti-African American bias, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation;

Whereas, in 2017, there have been more than 100 reported bomb threats against Jewish community centers, Jewish day schools, Jewish organizations and institutions in more than 38 states;

Whereas, in 2017, Islamic centers and mosques have been burned in the states of Texas, Washington, Florida, and Jewish cemeteries have been desecrated in the states of Missouri and Pennsylvania;

Whereas, in 2017, there has been harassment and hate-based violence against individuals who are perceived to be Arab or Muslims, including members of South Asian communities in the United States, and Hindu and Sikh Americans have been the target of hate-based violence; Whereas, February 28th,”

ooh, that’s very precise,

“Whereas, on February 28, 2017, President Donald Trump, before a joint session of Congress, acknowledged threats targeting Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, and stated that, ‘we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms.’”

End quote. So, that’s the “whereas”. So, from that we gather, let’s see, Muslims, Jewish people, Black people, African American people, South Asian people, Hindu people, Sikh people, are to not be discriminated against. We’re not to have any form of “hate crime, racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States”; and these are the groups that the senate find most assaulted. That is the “whereas” part. That is standard for all resolutions, but now we come to the “resolved” part. And this is the part that makes this resolution a little bit different than most resolutions. This says,

“Resolved that the senate affirms that the United States stands united in condemning hate and evil in all forms.”

Well, they took that from the president’s speech. Number two:

“Rejects hate-motivated crime as an attack on the fabric of society of the United States and the ideals of pluralism and respect.”

Number three:

“Condemns hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the Un…,”

There’s that word again, I don’t like that word (animus),

“…in the United States.”

Here’s the differentiating part: Not only are they voicing their opinion now, they are now giving directives to federal agencies. Number four:

“Calls on federal law enforcement officials, working with state and local officials, to expeditiously investigate all credible reports of hate crimes and incidents and threats against minorities in the United States; to hold the perpetrators of those crimes, incidents, or threats accountable and bring perpetrators to justice.”

So, now we have three levels of government enforcement; those on a crime, those on an incident, and those on a threat. How do we invoke due process on an incident or a threat if they are not a crime? Crimes, incidents, or threats; state and local and federal law enforcement agencies; expeditiously investigating all credible reports, and to hold the perpetrators of those incidents accountable and bringing them to justice. How do you bring someone to justice over an incidence? What is the element of an incident? What is the criminal due process for an incident? See, the deviations here, are very disturbing and very alarming. We need to pay attention to the language.

See, we not only have an expansion of federal power into the state and local officials, but we have now the senate of the United States directing the Executive agencies to direct our state and local officials, to expeditiously hold perpetrators of incidents accountable, and to bring the perpetrators of incidents to justice. This is statism; this is how this works, this is “minority report”; this is the abandonment of due process.

The senate also encourages the Department of Justice and other federal agencies to “work to improve the reporting of hate crimes,” and, ”to emphasize the importance of the agency’s collection and reporting of data, pursuant to federal law.” There’s this thing; they keep talking about hate crimes. Nobody goes to prison for hate. There is no such thing as a hate crime; why do they keep using this language over and over again, describing a crime that does not exist? There is no crime to hate; you do not go to prison for hating. Hate crimes are not really crimes, they’re sentence-enhancements. So, if you murder someone, and the prosecutor intends to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that your murder of that person was motivated by hate, the criminal justice system has then determined that you are now subject to, what we call, sentence-enhancements. You can receive a stiffer sentence for your murder because it was motivated by hate.

That should be really, really disturbing to us, as a civilized society, on many, many levels. First and foremost, the murder is the taking of someone’s life; that should be, I mean, that is a crime, obviously. That is a crime; you cannot take someone else’s life, without; of course. Self-defense aside, okay. You cannot criminally take someone else’s life. So, how does hate make the ending of that life worse? “Oh, I loved you when I murdered you, so I get less time in prison?” What if there is no recognized hate of your societal position? Nobody hates your people. Maybe, they hated you as an individual. Well, is that a hate crime then? I hate you because you’re a bad person; I hate you because you have something that I want; I hate you because you won’t give me what I want. I mean, what other kind of murder is there? And, why is it that certain lives would be valued above others?

See, that’s why I don’t like these hate crime sentence-enhancements; it creates even greater division in society. It says your life is more important than mine. So, if somebody kills you, they must go to prison for life, but if they kill me, no, maybe twenty years. How does that not breed division and resentment in a society? So, why is it that our legislators do not understand, there is no such thing as a hate crime; why do they keep using these terms over and over again? Why do they want the people to believe that there is such a thing as a hate crime? It is not a crime to hate. It is a crime to murder someone, it is a crime to rob someone, it is a crime to beat or batter someone; whether you do that with love in your heart, or hate in your heart, there is no such thing as a hate crime. The senate also says,

“We call on the Executive branch to continue to offer federal assistance that may be available for victims of hate crimes, and to continue to carry out safety and preparedness programs for religious institutions, places of worship, and other institutions that have been targeted because of the affiliation of the institutions with any particular religious, racial, or ethnic minority in the United States.”

I wonder, does that mean they’re going to stop supporting and funding the Southern Poverty Law Center, who have become the motivators of division and hatred?

So, I find this Senate Resolution disturbing from many aspects. There are people that are upset about it because of the preference; obviously in the text given to Muslim; crimes against Muslims and discrimination against those of the Islamic faith – I see this from a broader perspective. I think that it is wrong for the legislature to choose any religion as deeming of greater importance than the rest; of greater accountability than the rest. That’s not the job of the legislature; it’s supposed to be equal protection under the law.

I forgot, one of the “resolved” form in the last segment; let’s talk about that: The senate also,

“Encourages the development of interagency task force led by the Attorney General to collaborate on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities.”

First off, it’s not the Attorney General of the United States’ responsibility to protect any communities in America; that is not a delegated authority – that is a local authority. That is not a federal authority. And why wouldn’t the Attorney General of the United States be wanting to protect against crime in all communities?

Why wouldn’t states and local law enforcements, state and local officials want to protect against crime in all communities? Am I grasping for straws here? I’m just looking for equal protection under the law. The valuing of some lives over the rest, is a dangerous and dangerous, slippery slope. It drives us to see differences rather to overcome them. If all lives matter, why do some lives have more value than others?

And why is it that the senate feels compelled to create a resolution that is not only a resolution standing up, you know, “We don’t like hate; we don’t like evil.” Right? That’s great. We are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms; end of resolution. Why do we now have to have, at the end of the resolutions, directives for federal agencies to fix hate and evil? Why don’t we talk about federal agencies that are targeting certain groups because they disagree with the federal government? Why don’t we talk about Executive orders? Why don’t we talk about policies and regulations that target certain parts of our communities? To deprive people of their life and their liberty, and their ability to pursue their happiness. See, I see more division being created by government, than I do unity. And I also want to talk about separation of powers.

This is not a law. There’s been no law passed. A resolution does not have to go through the law binding process. So, it doesn’t go through the house, through the senate, through the house, through the president; it doesn’t go through that binding process. So, it’s not a law. So, how does the senate feel that it has the audacity outside of a law to issue directives to an executive agency? Do we now have Congress issuing Executive Orders, to Executive agencies? Cause this is how this reads; this does not read as a resolution. This reads as an Executive order, and for the congress, for the senate to be issuing Executive Orders to Executive agencies is a clear violation of separation of powers. We are so fundamentally out of whack in Washington DC.

I don’t think anybody over there knows what they’re supposed to be doing and what they’re not supposed to be doing. I think this is truly the epitome of a Banana Republic where everybody just does whatever they think they need to do, and whatever they feel fit to do. “Oh, well this is bad, and this will look good on our voting record if we come out against hate. If we come out against hate and we come together and we say ‘we hate “hate”, and we hate animus, and we want to stand against animus, and we want people prosecuted for animus, and we want justice obtained for people who hold animus.’”

You know, maybe that looks good on a voting record, but it is a very, very disturbing thing, when it comes from a legislative body as a directive on the Executive branch, over whom they have no authority outside of the creation of a law, that is done pursuant to the Constitution. And, by the way, this resolution isn’t even; if it were a law, is not pursuant to the Constitution because there is no constitutional authority delegated to the federal government to outlaw animus.

“To encourage the development of interagency task forces led by the Attorney General; to end animus in America.”

It is that word, it is that word, animus, that really, really bothers me. It’s the slipping degrees; the steps that we take further and further from liberty. And now, because we have this resolution, what happens as a result of this resolution? How are we to hold the Executive agencies accountable for what they do here? There’s no law directing them to do this. I wonder now, if this resolution will be taken into consideration by the federal courts as they are, I don’t know, interpreting the Civil Rights Act, or interpreting any regulation, or whatever, as legislative intent. See, that’s how laws become expanded beyond their borders, because the federal court system then looks at what they define as “legislative intent” to expand the meaning of the written word.

Actually, not just simply to expand – to make it elastic – into whatever they want it to mean, for whatever the times demand. So that we no longer are operating under written law. You can never know if you’re actually breaking the law or not because it’s really not a written law, it is a form of opinion that is enforced by the judiciary, based on extrapolation and inference. What kind of inference do we now get from the senate, wanting the Executive agencies and federal law enforcement to expeditiously investigate and to hold perpetrators accountable for animus.

This should be even more concerning to us. now that the Chicago police and federal agents have teamed up to, quote, “end gun violence” in Chicago. This is the testing ground. You see, if the federal government uniting with Chicago police, will “actually end gun violence” in Chicago, how many other cities are going to ask for federal agents to come police them? And then, how many cities will be policed by the federal government? This is a standing army.

And this is where Donald Trump is wrong. As a candidate, Donald Trump mentioned shootings that claimed hundreds of lives each year, and when he became president he tweeted on Twitter, “To send in the feds”, if local authorities didn’t stop the “carnage”. And now, Trump has announced a program to deploy more federal agents to address Chicago’s gun crime. Trump wrote on Twitter,

“Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in federal help.”

He is wrong. And I know this will probably make people upset with me, but we are liberty over security here; principle over party, and truth over personality. This is not returning power to the States by sending in federal troops to police local people. This is not restoring the Constitutional Republic by sending in federal troops to patrol city streets. They’re creating a Chicago Crime Gun Strike Force, comprising agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as federal prosecutors, police officers, and Illinois state troopers. The team will include about 20 ATF agents, 20 members of the Chicago police department, and it was described by federal authorities as the first – listen to me – the first permanent unit of its kind in the country. Did you catch that? Permanent! Chicago, the feds are never leaving you now; you are now permanently occupied by federal troops. “The first of its kind in the country.” Does that not tell us that they’re waiting for more; that they plan on making more? “The first of its kind.” We should make it the last of its kind.

White House spokesperson, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said, during an off-air briefing, what the problem is. She says,

“I think the problem there; pretty clearly it’s a crime problem,” She said, “I think that crime is probably driven by morality more than anything else, so I think this is a law enforcement issue.”

I wonder, now that we have this idea that this is a morality issue, and now a gun control problem becomes a morality issue and the federal troops are now a permanent part of law enforcement in Chicago, what does that mean for the rest of America? This is expansion of federal power to the extreme; to an extreme. That the designers of our Constitutional Republic were very most literally, in writing, hoping to prevent for us. This is what they actually lived through; this is why they created the Constitution in writing, and signed and sealed it as the supreme law of the land so that the federal government could not come outside of its designated boundaries. But they also knew that the Constitution was just a document of writing, and that if the people did not secure their own liberty, limit their own government, then liberty could be destroyed.

The attitude of those in Chicago is very, very disturbing; inviting federal rule over their community.

Rahm Emanuel, the Mayor of Chicago’s spokesperson said that, “we welcome – we welcome additional federal support. We appreciate the federal agents that are now arriving.”

Shari Runner, the president of the Chicago Urban League, said, “If it reduces the amount of guns flowing into this city, I’m all for it. Let’s do it.”

Why would we invite our own servitude through a standing army? Because we don’t know our history, and we do not know where this leads. When we can know. History and experience already writes the end of this story, and their own statements tell you what they want. “The first – the first of its kind in America.”

Let’s make a prediction, that this joint task force, these federal troops in Chicago will be a huge success. In the first year you’ll see huge reduction in shootings and gun crimes and, I don’t know, maybe even hate, in Chicago (sarcasm). Which will encourage other cities and other places to ask for federal troops in their streets. If the federal government can expand its authority in this way then there is no Constitution left at all. Because if the people can’t defend their own homes… You think it gets crazy when local officials – local law enforcement – become destructive of society. Think what it’s going to be like when federal troops do; how are you going to hold federal troops accountable when they become abusive to the people? It’s time for us to get educated so that we can procure our own security and limit the federal government to its original boundaries.

God bless. See you tomorrow.

Hate Crimes and Federal Troops in Chicago: Part 1

Listen to the audio here:

Intro: Connecting the dots of the Constitution for you like no one else can: The KrisAnne Hall Show. She’s an attorney, a disabled US Army Veteran, an author, public speaker, mother, pastor’s wife, and a Patriot. She’s KrisAnne Hall.

Rise and shine liberty-loving patriots! Welcome to the KrisAnne Hall show; this is KrisAnne Hall; Liberty over security, principle over party, and truth over your favorite personality. I am hoping and praying that everyone had a wonderful, safe, enjoyable, family fun-filled, Independence Day celebration; just the way John Adams hoped it would be. Should I just read to you a segment of his letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3rd, so we can understand what an amazing day this was for them, and what it should be for us as well. He says,

“The 2nd day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe,” John Adams says, “that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward, forever more.”

Imagine! Imagine! He even calls it “jubilation” and this is how we’re supposed to have approached that holiday. We’re gonna talk a little bit about that; I hope that we can dispel some myths that I ran across over the holidays, as everybody was producing a 4th of July video, and I tried to watch my share. I hope all of you got to see my 4th of July video. We had such a great reception with that video, I want to thank everybody who’s watched it; who has shared it. If you have not seen it or if you have not shared it, it’s still not too late. You can go to the Liberty First University YouTube channel and see our YouTube video on the 4th of July. Share this truth. It’s gonna be so very important, especially in light of some things that we’re gonna be talking about today….These misconceptions;

But first I want to tell you something very exciting that is happening. Remember C-Span came and taped one of my classes; my Sovereign Duty class. And I think that it’s still up on C-span, I’ll have to look that up. But anyway, this was back in February and they came and taped my Sovereign Duty class and… yep, there it is: Sovereign Duty, February 9, 2017, still available on They have been running it on C-Span Book TV for some time now; more than they actually promised us, so I was very excited about that. But I recently was contacted by C-Span again. C-Span has another television show on Book TV called In Depth. C-Span Book TV In Depth. It’s titled One Author. Three Hours. Your Calls. And guess what?! They have invited me to be on C-Span Book TV, In Depth: One Author. Three Hours. Your Calls. Three hours; an interview for three hours. I don’t think I’ve ever done an interview for three hours. But there’s gonna be; you can go to and look up their In Depth television shows.

They actually rebroadcast them there, and you can see what it’s like. I’m excited because there are great, great authors that have been on this program and I feel so very honored; so very excited about being here. Now, this will be; it’s always the first Sunday of the month; and this will be August 6th at 12:00 pm EST;, their In Depth series.

I’m very excited about that, so we’re going to be posting; we’ll be sending out a press release through our emails. So if you’re signed up for our emails you’ll get a reminder of that. We’re also gonna be posting it on the website; we’re gonna be posting it on Facebook and Twitter quite regularly, and I’m very excited about what is happening. August is just going to be a really, really fun month.

August is also the day that we’re going to be doing the broadc… the special… what are we calling this now? – The conference. What is the matter with my brain? I think I have post traumatic firework syndrome or something with my brain. But anyway, this coming up August, August 12th, is when we’re having the God, Family, Country, Truth and Liberty Convention in Olive Branch, Mississippi. It will be me, Pastor Dan, and C.L. Bryant. This is an amazing, amazing conference.

Pastor Dan Fisher gives this amazing, reenactment presentation on the Black Robed Regiment. And if you are not familiar with Pastor Dan Fisher, you need to go to; bringing back the Black Robed Regiment. What an amazing presentation. I saw this for the first time last year and was just moved. It was so wonderful and I thought to myself, we’ve got to do something together. So, the God, County, Family, Truth, and Liberty Conference will be held August 12th in Olive Branch, Mississippi, right near the Memphis airport. So, if you are not able to drive to Olive Branch, fly. We will have hotels blocked out in Olive Branch, so you need to go to the website which is; truth and liberty. And if you go to you will find a tab for the Truth and Liberty Conference; give you all the details that you need.

I’m sure you all know about C.L. Bryant. I have done many interviews with C.L. He has his own radio show broadcasting out of Louisiana, all over the southwest. He is also the creator of Runaway Slave, a groundbreaking documentary film to teach about the truth of political deceptions within the parties to keep the black people in a slavish mentality. C.L. Bryant is a minister of the gospel; a very powerful, powerful teacher, and he is going to be the cleanup hitter for this three speaker event. I’m really excited too, my husband is going to be the emcee.

So we actually have four amazing speakers, and my husband will probably speak more than the rest of us, given the fact that he will have all that opportunity between every single speaker to get us moving, get us excited about what is happening. This is an amazing – I hope, I pray – life changing conference. This is for family; this is for friends; this is for everyone, bring young and old, we should all come. August 12th, like I said, go to, for information on how to get to that conference.

So, here we are, nearly passed our independence week. And what have we learned? What have we learned? I want to share some pieces of a 4th of July YouTube that I found, that really sort of broke my heart in many ways. I don’t usually leave comments on these things, but I actually left a comment for this person; hopefully to reach her and touch her, and explain to her why she is wrong. Now, the title of her YouTube video is Why black people should not celebrate 4th of July. And I saw that and I thought, “oh please, please let this be a trick headline” – you know click bait headline, where she’s gonna go in and talk about Frederick Douglass, and she’s gonna talk about Crispus Attucks, and she’s gonna talk about George Middleton, and all of the amazing things that black men and women have done for our independence; for the independence of all, and how that declaration was the beginning of that freedom for all.

But it was not; I was not right. This was not click bait; this was not a trick title. She actually believes that the 4th of July should not be celebrated, because at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, black people – all black people – were slaves. And no freedom for the black people was ever accomplished through the Declaration of Independence; through our independence from Great Britain; this is not a holiday that black people should celebrate because the people who signed the Declaration of Independence were the same people who wanted to keep black people as slaves forever. This deception of history that this beautiful young woman has been led to believe as true; the deception is what enslaves her, not the truth. And I just want you to bear with me for a few minutes today as we talk about real truth here; real independence and real freedom.

You know, I believe that we have a solemn responsibility to teach truth with love and compassion in our hearts. We have a solemn responsibility to free people from the deceptions that are dividing America. We are so divided in America today by wealth, by money, by class, by geography, by color, by gender; I mean you pick it, we are divided in America. Just pick your poison; politics – everybody’s got a difference. Now even within political ideologies we have growing divisions. There is nothing more true than “united we stand and divided we fall.” Thomas Paine said, “It is not in numbers that we gather our strength but in unity.” And when we can take – let me put it this way: When there are people who can turn unity into division, how can we make progress in America? Progress comes from unity. Progress comes from a people working towards the same goals. If we are constantly creating divisions amongst each other, how can we create a progress of equality? How can we create a progress of liberty?

That is exactly what the designers of our Constitutional Republic; the founders of our Declaration of Independence were striving for; a unity in liberty for all. When they said, “All men are created equal and endowed by their creator,” they really, really meant that. You know, we’re also going to look at a speech that was given my Frederick Douglass on July 4th. It is an amazing speech where Frederick Douglass comments on slavery; but you know what the most remarkable thing about that is? Frederick Douglass is not putting down the drafters and the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He is not putting down those who created our Constitutional Republic, because Frederick Douglass knew that this was the only place in the world where “liberty and justice for all” was even possible. He starts off his speech with, “Fellow citizens, I am not wanting in respect for the fathers of this republic. The signers of the Declaration of Independence were brave men, they were great men too; great enough to give frame to a great age.” Frederick Douglass understood the principles embodied within the Declaration of Independence; understood the principles that were codified within the Constitution itself; were all things that we should be striving for; not discounting because of someone’s sick revision of history. Because some people in power profit off division, profit off hate, and maintain their power by keeping us divided. Let me share with you just a little clip from this YouTube video so we can talk about this; we can work together to help educate. Because I truly believe that this beautiful young lady; that her opinion is held by many people in America. Black, white, red, yellow, green; everybody. I believe that she has a common opinion and a popular opinion in many parts of America. But we have a duty. We have a duty to be the speakers of truth because we’re never going to gain a unity in liberty until we’re able to approach this. She’s not trying to lie, she’s not trying to profit off deception. She has, herself, been deceived, and it is this deception; this wicked, willful deception perpetrated on our communities, on our children, that keeps America stunted, divided, and in internal turmoil. We must take this with love and know how to respond in truth.

So, her name is Simply Kenyata and she has a YouTube channel. She puts out videos every now and again that represent her ideas, her opinions, and she’ll even say in this video, “from my understanding of history.” This is the problem right, “from my understanding of history.” So let’s listen to her understanding of history:  (20 mins)  Watch the video on YouTube here:

Recording: “What up family? It’s your girl, Simply Kenyata, here. And first let me say thank you for tuning in and allowing me to share my opinion, my perspective with you guys. I wanted to come in here and talk to y’all real quick today because I know that tomorrow is Independence Day in this country. It is a holiday that is very much celebrated by all who live here. And, I just wanted to come in here and talk to you all real quick because I don’t know if you all know, but this is not all of you; this is not everyone’s Independence Day and you know, this is the reason why I wanted to come in here and “boop” burst your bubble real quick. Um, so – especially, especially black people; I’m sorry, if you – you know, I’m not a racist or anything like that, but if you ain’t white this ain’t your Independence day, booboo, I’m sorry. Have a seat, mm hmm. And I’m gonna tell you why you should have a seat. But the reason I want to do this quick video is because a lotta y’all out here are going to be clowning tomorrow. Oh my goodness, please don’t do it to yourself. Um, first of all, let me remind you that black people – your ancestors – was still slaves during this period, what was it, uh, 1776, was the year all this went down. Yeah, from my knowledge, your ancestors were still slaves so, first of all, you ain’t had no independence, or no freedom, so, what you celebrating?” (End recording.)

See, this really breaks my heart when I think about the people like Crispus Attucks, George Middleton, Peter Salem, James Forten. These people who gave; some of them giving their lives so that we could be free. All free black men. George Middleton was not only a free man fighting for our independence, when he was finished fighting her started the African Benevolence Society; a non-profit, if you will, organization that was established to help widows and orphans of the black soldiers who fought for our independence.

How can you claim that all black people were slaves? If I just show you one, that discounts all of them, but there were not just one, there were hundreds and hundreds of free black people doing amazing things. Peter Salem, George Forten, these are but a few free black men that sacrificed so that we could all be free. And this history that miss Kenyata has been led to believe is a history of lies; a history of lies that prevent her from celebrating the liberty that she holds. I really believe, that she still believes, in some sense, that she does not have the liberty that our celebration of independence embodies, even today. Why would she believe that? Because she’s probably been taught in her schools her whole life that, “this does not apply to you”; that “the Constitution does not apply to you.” As she told the people on her YouTube channel, “Independence Day, black people, does not apply to you.” Where would she come up with that idea if someone had not told her? I just, I want us to take just a few minutes on this day to honor those who gave so much for us. And yet, it’s quite obvious that history is denying them the position of their sacrifice.

We should be having holidays within 4th of July; we should be having banners celebrating Crispus Attucks, the first free black man to give his life. He’s not only the first man, but he is the first free black man to give his life for our independence movement. During the Boston massacre, it was Crispus Attucks who was a leader that day in the name of liberty. Can we have, within our Independence Day celebrations, George Middleton feasts? He was a colonel in the militia from the state of Massachusetts. He’s the one that started the African Benevolence Society in 1796 as a free black man.

Peter Salem received a medal of honor and George Washington heralded him as a hero; free black man, serving in the continental army. Ned Hector: free black man. Fought bravely in the battles of Brandywine and Germantown; knowing that this battle for independence would be his independence. James Forten: grandson of a slave, but the son of free blacks. He was a free black boy, standing in Philadelphia, listening as the Declaration of Independence was read publicly for the first time; so inspired by this independence that James Forten, at 14 years old, joined the ship Royal Louis with its captain, Stephen Decatur. He was even captured by British soldiers and given a very attractive offer; the captain of the British ship said, “Come and live and be a companion to my son.” He said, “Sure that’d be great.” No, he didn’t. Cause he wasn’t there for fame; he wasn’t there for riches. He was there for liberty. He told that captain, “I have been taken prisoner for the liberties of my country, and never will prove a traitor to her interest.” These are the words of a free black man who gave up his opportunity of a life in luxury where he would never have to work or do any… he would just simply have to be a playmate to his child’s son and he would be provided everything he would possibly need, and he said, “no, liberty means more than that to me.” He would end up spending seven months in a ship prison hold because he was fighting for liberty.

See, these are the things that we need to be talking about. These are the things that we need to know. As we celebrate independence, our educational system, those who are in power who want to retain that power through any means possible; those who are wicked profiteers off division and hate; they have been deceiving us out of a glorious history and have convinced entire segments of our population that independence does not apply to them. They don’t realize that our battle for independence was a battle to end slavery as well, because in our history books we don’t teach that the American colonies wanted to end slavery under British rule, but British rule would not let them.

Colonel George Mason described during the federal convention in 1787 that there was the desire to end this slavery, but they would not let it. He says, quote: ”This infernal traffic of slavery originated in the avarice of British merchants; the British government constantly checked the attempts of Virginia to put a stop to it.” I’ll remind you, the British government had passed a law that said there would be no goods sold in the American colonies unless they were offloaded from British ships. And Virginia, trying to put a stop to slavery, even before independence, Great Britain was not only telling them no, they were threatening them with economic sanctions and military repercussions. Judge Pendleton observed during the debate in South Carolina in the House of Representatives in 1788, that only three states, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, allowed the importation of Negroes. This is in 1788. Virginia had a clause in her constitution for this purpose, and Maryland, he believed, had even before the war, prohibited it. How can we not teach this history? James Madison remarked, in 1788, that a few slaves were still in New York City, New Jersey, and Connecticut, but there was an attempt to annihilate slavery through the creation of our Constitution. Justice James Iredell stated, during the debate in North Carolina in 1788, “It was the wish of a great majority of the convention to put an end to slavery immediately.” This is why we gained our independence: to end slavery. This is why we ratified the Constitution with the text that it holds, so that we would end slavery. James Madison also said, “It is hoped that by expressing a national disapprobation of this trade, we may destroy it, and save ourselves from reproaches and our posterity the imbecility ever attended on a country filled with slaves.” This is our history; the end of slavery.

If we are going to free all our children from this designed deception to keep division and political slavery in America, we are gonna have to be the ones that start speaking truth. We have lots of articles on the website,, that will help you [learn] how the Constitution ended slavery; from slave to patriot, those who gave all. We have lots of articles about those who gave everything so that we could be free. I also teach a class called “The Forgotten Founders,” where we come and we teach about Crispus Attucks, and James Forten, and George Middleton, Bernardo de Gàlves, Betty Zane, Phillis Wheatley; these beautiful people who gave everything so that we could be free; these beautiful people that Frederick Douglass heralds as the heroes of the future of America.

We must move beyond what we have been taught and drive forward in the future with truth. We have to get beyond this, because in reality, as we remain deceived, as we remain divided, we are actually bringing about our own fall. Because [if] we cannot be united in liberty; what is it that we’re united in? We’re united in our factions. George Washington, in his farewell address, warned us that factions would be the end of our liberty. I believe he was talking about political factions, but I think that you can put any kind of faction in there. I mean, think about the “us” and “them” mentality that we have. Think about what we have going on in America, about how we are to be treating each other. Every difference becomes a division. Instead of saying, “you are different and I am different, but we can be different together, cause we have liberty and equality to express our differences,” be who you wanna be. But I have the liberty to live my life not conforming into your beliefs. Yet, we feel like, “okay, so you have the liberty to believe what you want to believe, but if you don’t believe and conform to exactly everything that I want, then, guess what, you are wrong.” No. There are some truths that simply cannot be denied. I love this line in Frederick Douglass’ 4th of July speech; let me see if I can find this. He says,

“But I fancy I hear someone of my audience say, ‘it is just in this circumstance that you and your brother abolitionists fail to make a favorable impression on the public mind. Would you argue more and denounce less; would you persuade more and rebuke less; your cause would be much more likely to succeed.’” He says, “But I submit, where all is plain, there is nothing to be argued.”

You see, we get that all the time with the Constitution; the people calling us purists, and saying “you know it’s this aspect of the Constitution that you fail to change the people’s minds, you fail to change the politician’s minds. Why don’t you be less argumentative? Why don’t you be more persuasive? Maybe you should rebuke less, and submit more persuasive argument; you’d be more likely to succeed if you could come across a little bit more amenable. Don’t be so adversarial.” That’s the same thing the people were telling Frederick Douglass. And he said, “But I submit, where all is plain, there is nothing to be argued.” I’m just trying to submit to you; the Constitution says what it says. Why do we gotta argue? There is no argument in the face of plain language and plain truth. You either are for the Constitution; you either follow the Constitution, or you don’t. There is no half way.   (37:50)

The 6th Amendment: What is it worth to you?
November 4, 2014

Transcribed by: Angilyn Mathews


Listen to the audio podcast here:

Intro: I know you’re out there. I know that you’re afraid. You’re afraid of us. You’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin. I’m going to hang up this phone and then I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see; a world without rules and controls, a world without borders or boundaries, a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

Rise and shine liberty loving patriots! KrisAnne Hall here. Welcome to the KrisAnne Hall show! We are a teach-show and not a talk-show. Hoping to bring the education of Liberty First to a struggling and starving Republic. Hopefully bringing the good news, the solutions, to our out-of-control government problem. And we do have an out-of-control government problem. If we don’t see that then there shall be no hope. If we don’t see that there are problems that need to be fixed then we have no hope. But we do have hope because there are many awakening, many understanding that we have traveled far from our original course. But a course correction is necessary and it can be achieved. And it can only be achieved through education; so that’s what we do here on the KrisAnne Hall Show.

I’m so pleased to be a part of the reeducation of America, the reestablishment of liberty, the restoration of the Republic and today is where we’re going to be a little bit more teach-y than news-y today. We usually are, but more so today. Because I am an attorney; you know that if you’ve listened to me for any period of time. And I’m a little irritated to say the very least at the training that I got in law school and its contradiction to the Constitution and its focus on how to circumvent the Constitution. Yes, that’s what they teach in law school; They do not teach the Constitution, they teach us how to circumvent it, and they teach us that men and women in black robes sitting on benches know more about the Constitution than the men who wrote it. And now you know why we are in the fix that we’re in.

Now, I am a little irritated, maybe even somewhat bitter, at the education that I received, given the understanding that I have of the necessity of the Constitution. Daniel Webster said in 1806, July 4, 1806, by the way, he said, “Is the Constitution worth preserving?” He said, “Then guard it as you would the very seat of your life. Guard it not only against the open blows of violence but also against that spirit of change.” And that’s what law schools do, they are built on the spirit of change; the spirit that changes the fundamental foundations of who we are, and is transforming us into something that our Framers never intended us to be, actually prayed we would never become, went to war to break away from. And so what we’re going to be teaching today, I’m inspired to teach about the Sixth Amendment today. I’m particularly inspired to teach about the Sixth Amendment because of something that I experienced recently:

I was in a courtroom… You’ve heard me, if you listen to my daily show, you have heard me talk about Terry Trussell. Terry Trussell is a man in Dixie County, Florida, Cross City, Florida, who filed some complaints against the government for misconduct. The government turned on him and arrested him for a series of charges, some archaic charges, Draconian charges, if you will, of impersonating a government official. I can’t wait for this trial. I hope that I am in town for this trial because I cannot wait for it. It is going to be a very interesting thing to see the state prove that this man was impersonating a government officer. And so, the interesting thing here is, not the fact that he was charged with impersonating a government officer, but the fact that he showed up for his arraignment, these are criminal charges and he received a notice to appear; he appeared for his arraignment and during the arraignment, while he was standing in the courtroom, was arrested for failure-to-appear.

It’s a very, very odd thing actually: The defendant, the accused, Mr. Trussell, in the courtroom saying, “I am present. I am here to answer for the charges.” And the judge calling out his name. “I am present. I am here to answer for the charges.” The judge saying, “This man has failed to appear, take him into custody, Sheriff, Deputy, Bailiff, and put him in jail.” Yes, you just heard that. “I am present and I am willing to answer for these charges.”

“He has failed to appear.’ (The Judge says,) “Bailiff, take him into custody.”

Yeah! That’s really, really bizarre because at that point in time you don’t care what he did to get into that courtroom; the judge has determined that the man standing in the courtroom has failed to appear, even though he’s standing in the courtroom, and is being charged with failure-to-appear, and arrests him!

So, I have the opportunity to be in Cross City, Florida, which is Dixie County, Florida for Mr. Trussell’s arraignment on his failure-to-appear; because it’s now a new charge, he gets a new arraignment. Now mind you, he has been in jail for 21 days, on a failure-to-appear where he was standing in the courtroom. 21 days, in jail, for a failure-to-appear, when he was standing in the courtroom. 21 days in jail, denied a bond. Denied a bond. You know, can we just simply read to you the 8th Amendment? The 8th Amendment says,

“Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

How is no bond compliant with the 8th Amendment? No bond on a case where there’s no threat of violence; he committed no violence to anyone. He was no threat of violence to anyone. How is no bond compliant with the 8th Amendment when the man is in jail for a failure-to-appear, when he when he was standing in the courtroom, when he was arrested to failure-to-appear?

These are the things that we’re going to talk about today. Because when I went to this arraignment for Mr. Trussell I heard some very, very shocking things come out of the mouth of the judge and the mouth of the chief prosecutor. Now, he’s the chief prosecutor, he’s not just simply the chief prosecutor, he’s the elected prosecutor for the 2nd judicial circuit of the state of Florida. He is an elected position. He is an elected representative of the people, as a prosecutor for the 2nd judicial circuit of the state of Florida. And so here’s what happens: Mr. Trussell is standing before the judge, and the judge asks him, “Do you have the intention to get an attorney?” He says, “I do have an intention to get an attorney. I’m trying to secure an attorney. I expected an attorney to be here today. I do not intend to represent my self. The problem is, I’ve been in jail for 21 days and it’s been difficult to secure an attorney. It is under my impression that we have put a down payment on an attorney and the attorney was going to be here. I do not know why the attorney is not here.” And then the judge says, the most very, very bizarre thing, “Well, Mr. Trussell, I do intend to give you,” And I quote; because I wrote it down here. We were not allowed to record; the judge refused to allow anyone to record, even members of the press. Now, I believe that if I had known that ahead of time, I would have filed some type of motion, because the Supreme Court argues against the judge just arbitrarily determining that no reports, no press, can take recordings.

Now, recording is different than video taping, okay, so the court, the Supreme Court says that video taping can be limited but recording can only be limited in very, very limited aspects, and only through the issuing of an order from a superior judge. And so, I would have filed something had I known that we were not going to be able to record. But here we go. I took notes, and I wrote this as he said it, and wrote three asterisks afterwards: This judge says to Mr. Trussell,

“Well, Mr. Trussell, I am willing to give you a limited constitutional right to represent yourself. I am willing to give you a limited constitutional right to represent yourself.”

How many of my members of the Liberty First Brigade are already recognizing at least three problems with that statement? “I am willing.”: Problem number one. As if it’s his choice. He can choose which rights apply to you and which do not. “To give.”: Problem number two. Your rights are not given to you by any member of government. Your rights are inherent. You see, we have erred in the teaching of our Bill of Rights so now our judges and our lawyers believe that Constitutional, that you have Constitutional rights, rights that are given to you via the Constitution and since the judges are the ultimate arbiters of the Constitution, they are the ultimate authorities over the Constitution, and the ultimate facilitators of the Constitution, then they are the givers of the rights. “I am willing to give you limited Constitutional rights.”:

Problem number three. Limited Constitutional rights. How is it any judge’s authority on this planet to limit your Constitutional rights? Even understanding there has been no hearing, just arbitrarily this judge says, “I am going to give you limited Constitutional rights,” And this judge is dumber than I’ve ever thought.

Welcome back to the KrisAnne Hall Show. Are you sick and tired of out-of-control government? Are you sick and tire of operating in a system that has no respect for your rights, but expects you to respect its laws? Then, may I invite you to go to my website,, and you’ll find the solutions to these problems. That’s what we’re all about: truth, teaching, and solutions., please go to my website today. Please promise me that you will go to my website in the next 24 hours. If you do not go in the next 24 hours, you will not go. Go to my website in the next 24 hours, read just one article, listen to just one more podcast, besides this one, listen to a video – watch a video, and share something, please. Go to my facebook page; we’re posting four times a day at a minimum, sometimes at a maximum. Please share this information so that we can inspire others to stand for the Constitution.

We are talking about the absolutely outrageous hearing against Terry Trussell in Dixie County, Florida, conducted by a judge named James Hankinson. And Judge James Hankinson has told Terry Trussell,

“I am willing to give you a limited Constitutional right to defend yourself.”

Now I want to ask you, are you willing to allow this man go unchallenged? Are you willing to allow Terry Trussell to live on his own and defend himself in this matter? Because I want you to take the opportunity to exercise your right to disagree with this judge, standing for the rights of Terry Trussell, so that you can stand for your own rights. You see, we’ll either hang together or we’ll hang separate but we will surely hang in a system like this, and its time for the Liberty First Brigade to stand up

I want to give you the contact information for judge James Hankinson. Please write this down and contact him:

His phone number, 850-577-4320. His email:

We’ve gotta learn how to stand for each other in this situation. You know what, you may live in Washington state, you may live in Upstate New York, you may live in South Florida, you may live in Arizona, but if we don’t stand for each other in the name of liberty across this country, how will there be anybody left to stand for us when it’s our turn? And this judge has told Terry Trussell, “I am willing to give you a limited Constitutional right to defend yourself.” How does this judge exist in such a state of ignorance and arrogance at the same time, to believe that he has the authority to choose, the authority to give, and the authority to limit any right whatsoever? I am so appalled by this.

It is difficult for me to even go on from this, but this hearing does not get any better. He says to Terry Trussell, “We are going to set your trial date for February 9th through 11th, and if we determine that you are not qualified to represent yourself, and you fail to get an attorney, this is going to be a very one-sided hearing. He says,

“This is already an awkward situation because no attorney is here to represent you, and therefore it is not appropriate to hear from you.”

When did it become “appropriate” for a court to deny someone a right to be heard?! This should send shivers up your spine!

I am going to give you Justice James Hankinson’s contact information for every segment until we’re done because I think this is very important for our Liberty First Brigade to be responsive in this.

Justice James Hankinson’s phone number is 850-577-4320. His email is;

you go to my facebook page and I will post this for you. It is important that we stand together so we don’t hang separately. We must stand now. I don’t care where you are in the country, but this is ridiculous for a judge to stand up and say that “it is awkward for me to hear from you in the courtroom because you have no attorney, and it’s not appropriate for me to hear from you”.

When do we have a limited right to be heard from the court? Based on the fact that we are represented by an attorney? When did it become a requirement of due process to have an attorney to represent you? It is a choice! It is a right to have one if you choose to have one, but if you don’t have one, it’s not a requirement to be heard. Because, you see, if it’s a requirement to be heard, and the judge and the courtroom can ignore your presence, hello! Arresting a man for failure to appear when he’s standing in the courtroom; if it is a matter of our process to deny someone a voice to be heard, even though he’s present, just because he doesn’t have an attorney, how is that appropriate due process? How is that any respect of liberty? It is not!

Terry Trussell says,

“I have substantial standing in this community. There is no threat of me leaving or fleeing. I have assets in town. I am going to get an attorney for my defense. I am in good standing. I am not a flight risk.” And he says, “I already have a bond against me. Can you please let me out of jail so I can prepare for my defense?”

And the judge says, “It’s awkward to hear from you because you don’t have an attorney.” That is outrageous. That is so antithetical to what our Founders believed; what they shed blood for.

Listen to what the 6th Amendment says: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial.

Yeah, not one where the judge can limit the public’s access; not one where the judge can say that the press is not allowed to record. Cause it says here,

“a public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed. Which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him and to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the right of assistance of counsel for his defense.”

There are so many things, it is so rich in here, and there are so many rights in this. That we are to be reminded that ours inherently… That was the purpose of the Bill of Rights; to remind us what our inherent rights were, not to establish our right to them. And the judge says, “I’m willing to give you a limited Constitutional right. Mr. Trussell says,

“I was not given a fair opportunity to be heard at the last hearing. I was announcing my presence, I was saying, ‘I’m here’. I’m not going to ignore this charge; I will stand.” And the very same judge who said that “I am willing to give you a limited Constitutional right”

replies to Mr. Trussell and says,

“Well, I do recognize that someone was standing in the courtroom, but I couldn’t know who you were, so I had you arrested for failure-to-appear.”

A judge apparently, who’s willing to recognize a limited Constitutional right is also willing to have an unknown, unidentified man arrested for failure-to-appear at a hearing in which he is appearing. And then, it gets even worse. The judge says, “Without an attorney, Mr. Trussell, you need to have an attorney.” He said,

“Without an attorney this will be a one-sided trial, because you cannot be heard without an attorney.”

What in the world is this judge talking about?! This judge has just announced in his courtroom of limited constitutional rights that the 6th Amendment is toilet paper; it means absolutely nothing! Because “without an attorney, you can’t be heard.”

Well, I’m reading in this 6th Amendment that

“in all criminal prosecutions the accused shall enjoy the right of a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusations; to be confronted with the witnesses against him, to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”

I am saying that he has the right to these things. It’s not saying that this is a requirement for his right to be heard. “In a speedy and public trial.” It does not say, “In all criminal prosecutions where the accused is represented by a lawyer”. It does not say that! It does not say, “In all criminal prosecutions where the accused has an attorney present.” This is an unqualified right. In all criminal prosecutions you have these rights. But in this statement the judge is saying several things: Without an attorney you can’t be heard.

And since we’ve already determined, because this happened before: The public defender’s office, some people I used to work with in that circuit; because I used to be working in that circuit as a prosecutor; this would have never happened this way. If I had been the supervisor in this office, this never would have happened this way. Let’s just be clear about that. The public defender told us that Mr. Trussell filled out his information and did not qualify; he had too many assets for public counsel, based on monetary needs. And this judge is saying, if you cannot provide yourself with an attorney, you cannot represent yourself; you cannot be heard. How interesting is that?

See, there’s another problem with this, because this judge is linking your 6th Amendment right, to have the assistance of counsel for your defense, to your capacity to pay for one; as if the only time the government has to appoint an attorney to represent you is when you cannot afford one. I’m sorry, I didn’t read that caveat in the 6th Amendment. Did you? Let’s go over that one more time because this is very important. “In all criminal prosecutions.”, not just the ones that the judge determines to have limited constitutional rights. “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusations; to be confronted with the witnesses against him, to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.’ Period!

It does not say, “to have assistance of counsel for his defense if he can’t afford to provide one for himself.” No! It is an unqualified right to have an assistance of counsel for his defense. Why? Because the 6th Amendment is not there for poor people. No! The 6th Amendment is there for all people, and it’s there for a reason. It’s not for a reason when you can’t afford it. It’s there because we’re afraid that the government will become so tyrannical that it will deny you these rights. See, the 6th Amendment is not for poor people; we are not afraid that poor people that are prosecuted will be denied a speedy trial, a trial by a jury, or attorney. Our Framers were concerned that any people would be denied these rights by a tyrannical government; by a government who would exert a power greater to the suppression of the due process, inherent due process, rights of the people. It’s not for poor people, it’s for all people.

And it’s to protect us, not from poverty, but to protect us from tyranny. See, what happens, this is the system that we have set up; the system where the government makes the laws; the system where government pays law enforcement to enforce the laws; a system where the government pays the prosecutor to prosecute the laws; a system where the government pays the judge to sit and to determine the authority of those laws. How is it that you believe you have any hope of any just trial in a system where the government makes the laws, enforces the laws, prosecutes the laws, and sits in judgment of those laws? So, what would happen; let’s just imagine, that the government becomes so tyrannical, that the people fear the government so much, that you are unable to find an attorney to represent you because every attorney in the area is afraid of retaliation from the government. Well, then you don’t have an attorney, right? Not because you can’t afford one but because the government has become so tyrannical that the attorneys fear retaliation from the government. That is why you have the right to the assistance of counsel, because then the lawyer can say, “Look, I am representing this guy because you have appointed me, not because I choose to, so you can’t retaliate against me for defending this man and his rights; because I have been appointed.” The right to the assistance of counsel is not to protect poor people from poverty; it is there to protect all people from tyranny, and it’s about time our judicial system catch a snap!

Welcome back to the KrisAnne Hall Show. We’re having an in-depth study of the 6th Amendment today because of the actions of

Judge James Hankinson, of the 2nd Judicial Circuit in Tallahassee, Florida. His phone number: 850-577-4320. His email:

Please stand in defense of Terry Trussell. Please contact Justice James Hankinson and explain to him that he is an officer of the court who has sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the liberty of the people, and professing that people have limited, limited, constitutional rights based on his qualification is simply unacceptable. Please explain to him that Mr. Trussell has a right to an attorney; if he cannot find one to represent him, regardless of this financial capacity; because, guess what, we do not have the 6th Amendment to protect poor people against poverty, we have a 6th Amendment to protect all people from a tyrannical government. And apparently Justice Hankinson does not understand that. We also have a situation, a 6th Amendment situation, where Terry Trussell has requested a bill of particulars; meaning he wants to be informed of the nature and the accusations, and the cause of the accusations against him; he wants to be informed, in particular, of the nature and the cause of the accusations against him, and the Judge Hankinson response, “The court won’t hear you because you have no attorney.” “See, this is the problem,” the judge said, “You’re requesting a bill of particulars but I can’t hear you because you do not have an attorney to represent you.”

Again! Can we please do this again?! “In all criminal prosecutions…” Not just ones where you’re represented by an attorney.

“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation.”

This is the 6th Amendment. The 6th Amendment secures his right to be informed of the nature and the cause of the accusation and the judge is saying, No, I can’t do that because you don’t have an attorney. And you have not been qualified by me to represent yourself. You cannot stand before me and make any request of me, because I don’t hear you. I can’t hear you in my courtroom without an attorney, and without me deeming you to be qualified to be heard. You must qualify, in my opinion, to receive your limited constitutional rights.

Wow. I knew justice was blind, but I learned that day that she is deaf too. Apparently, justice, in order to be heard, must have a hearing-aid that consists of the qualification of the judge, or an attorney to speak on your behalf. Is this the nature of the system of due process; the change Otis Jr. fought for? Is this the nature of due process that Thomas Jefferson pledged his life for? Is the nature of due process that Samuel Adams and John Hancock put their lives on the line? Is this the nature of due process that Samuel Adams was talking about when he said we had an inherent right to protect our life, our liberty, and our property? Is this the nature of due process in our 5th Amendment that says that we shall not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law? Is this the nature of due process that you want for your children? It’s time to speak up. Don’t sit still, please, I’m begging you. Liberty First Brigade, stand up!

Rise and shine, liberty loving patriots! Welcome to the KrisAnne Hall show. I am so, so pleased to be here this morning. It is a pleasure and an honor to be here; I am blessed beyond measure to be able to do what I do; so blessed beyond measure to have the opportunity to teach the truth. You know, I started off this day, challenged in my motivation. Can I just mention to you that this is not an easy battle, and I want to just share with you that there are difficulties, and I don’t want you to look at me; You see me, you hear me, you see me whenever you come to my meetings and it looks like I am just invincible; that I am a woman of impenetrable armor, solely and completely dedicated without wavering to what we are doing in this battle for liberty.

But I want to share with you, because I think it’s very important to understand, that I am not that woman. I press on sometimes in spite of the lowness of my spirit. I press on sometimes when I feel defeated. I press on sometimes when I even doubt that I have the energy or the wherewithal to press on. And I do so because I have such great examples to lead my way. You know that I gather such great encouragement, such great strength, from the Founders of our American liberty and I want to tell you and show you what my favorite founding mother said, and I really, really… in moments when I can’t go on, or I feel like I don’t have the strength to go on, I remember what Mercy said; Mercy Otis Warren: “I have my fears,” she says, “yet notwithstanding the complicated difficulties that rise before us there is no receding.” She said, “May nothing ever check the glorious spirit of freedom which inspires the patriot in the cabinet and the hero in the field with the courage to maintain their righteous cause and to endeavor to transmit the claim to posterity even if they must seal the rich conveyance to their children with their own blood.”

I think we sanitize history too much some times. I think we believe that this was an easy road for them; that the battles were there, and “look at the victory that they had and it was all worth it at the end.” But that’s a real easy perspective to have when you’re looking from the end. But when you are in the midst of the battle; when you are in the midst of defeat within the battle, it is not easy to have that perspective. We are in the midst of that battle. Mercy called it a righteous cause; they believed that liberty was a gift from God. Thomas Jefferson said, “The God that gave us life gave us liberty, and how can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we remove their only firm foundation; the conviction in the minds of men that liberty is a gift from God.” He goes on to say, “I tremble for this nation because I know we cannot hide from God’s wrath forever.” John Adams said, “Liberty must be supported at all hazards. We have a right to it derived from our maker.”

These are the men and the women who have the courage and the resolve to maintain a righteous cause even through discouragement and defeat. The battles were long; the battles were hard; not all the battles were won. And when they were won, they were won against all odds. And we must recognize that they were afraid; that there’s nothing strange about being afraid. There is nothing strange about being discouraged. On April 26, 1777, John Adams wrote to Abigail. In his discouragement he said, “I am wearied out with expectation that the Massachusetts troops would have arrived here now at headquarters.” He’s waiting for them and they’re just not showing up. He’s writing to Abigail, he says, “I’ve been lately more remiss than usual in writing you. There has been a dearth of news; nothing from anyone, and now I am wearied out, waiting for the Massachusetts troops to arrive here in Boston.” And then he says, “Do our people intend to leave the continent in a lurch? Do they mean to submit? What fatality attends them?” We have to understand that being frustrated and discouraged is not unusual. He says, “Does our state intend to send only a half our a third of their quota? Do they wish to see another crippled, disastrous, and disgraceful campaign for want of army?” He says, “I am more sick and more ashamed of my own countrymen than ever I was before.”

I want to know, I want you to know, that there is discouragement but that, as Mercy said, should not change our resolve. John says, “More wrath than terror has seized me. I am very mad. The gloomy cowardice of the times is intolerable.” And then he says, “It is not tolerable that the opening spring which I should enjoy with my wife and my children upon my little farm, should pass away and laugh at me day after day, month after month, in this conclave.” And then, in his wrath, John Adams looks at us; after expressing his frustration, after expressing his discouragement, and for frustrating his broken heart, for not being with his family. He says, “Posterity!” with an exclamation point. “You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. For if you do not I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”

I want you to hear the frustration, I want you to hear the discouragement, I want you to hear the broken heart. I want you to hear the desperation. Because you have to know that there’s a victory at the end. You have to know that these feelings are not unusual; these feelings are expected; but you have to know that the glorious spirit of freedom should inspire us to maintain our righteous cause. Because we have an obligation to endeavor to transmit that claim to our posterity, even if we must seal the rich conveyance with our own blood. That’s what our Framers gave us. Are our children less worthy than we are? Hannah Winthrop said, “And be it known unto Britain that even American daughters are politicians and patriots and will aid the good work with their female efforts.”

I want to know where you stand. Are you part of the Liberty First Brigade? Are you willing to say as James Otis Junior said, “I submit myself to every odious name for liberty’s sake. I am resolved to continue, consequences be as they may.” I think it’s important to recognize that this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats; this is not a battle between Progressives and Conservatives; this is a spiritual battle, the same spiritual battle that our Framers knew about. Thomas Paine said, “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered, yet we have this consolation with us: The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly. It is dearness only that gives everything its value and heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated. If God be for us who can be against us? And why sit ye here idle? Why do you cling to your comfort and enslave our children?” We can win. We will win.

You know, I don’t know why I have this overwhelming need to encourage this morning; I mean, we are just on the edge of an amazing victory so we perceive; an amazing victory that we should be floating on like a cloud on high. Why is it in my spirit I feel like we need some encouragement? Well, I’m not going to deny that feeling cause I believe someone out there needs this encouragement; I know that I do. I mean, I woke up with this on my heart; fighting some amazing, amazing opposition, spiritually, and I want to share with you the encouragement that came to me because we are all flesh, we are all weak, but we must endeavor to secure liberty for our children.

My encouragement came in recognizing that this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats; this is not a battle between Progressives and Conservatives; this is a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” I think the key to victory is recognizing who your enemy is, and our enemy is not the flesh and blood before us, but the rulers of darkness of this world; spiritual wickedness in high places. Is that amazing to you? It is amazing to me; it should be amazing to you that the bible, Ephesians 6:12, specifically says “spiritual wickedness in high places.” He’s talking about government here; he’s talking about people with power over other people and the spiritual wickedness within them.

But let me mention to you, we are not promised that these battles will be easy or short. I gave you the testimony of John Adams and his frustration in 1777 in Boston; Thomas Paine on December 23, 1776, “These are the times that try men’s souls. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered. Yet, we have this consolation with us: the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” And we know liberty as a gift from God is highly esteemed and it’s going to cost us something. We should not expect any less a trial today knowing that the same sprit assails us now as did Thomas Paine then. I know that the battle rages and that I am the enemy of the enemy. The enemy is ruthless and knows my weaknesses and will attempt to use them to my defeat. Psalms 102:8 says, “My enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.” They’re dedicated to see my defeat! And what is the primary goal of the enemy? To make me quit; to make me worthless in the battle; to make me curse God and deny His word and His promises. “Dost though still retain thine integrity? Curse God and die,” it says in Job 2:9.

But be on notice: you may attack me, you may hurt me, I may stumble, but I will not curse God. I know that God cannot lie and that he has made me promises. Numbers 23:19, “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent; hath he said, and he shall not do it? Or hath he spoken and he shall not make it good?” I know that God will keep his promises, and “being fully persuaded what he hath promised he was able to perform,” Romans 4:21 says. And I know that God has a purpose for me to glorify Him and He will not allow that purpose to fail. “Nevertheless, He saved them for the sake of His name, that He might make His power known.” So be on notice, enemy, I know that God will prevail and through Him so will I. He has placed us all on a path and if we are willing He will see us through; He is able. “For which the cause I also suffer these things, nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed. And I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed until Him against that day. Not only that: we have certain promises that should bolster our faith in the dark valleys when all looks lost, when all looks like a waste of time, when all looks like needless suffering; I lean on one promise. Want to know what that is? I want to tell ya…

We have promises that should bolster our faith in the dark valleys when all looks lost, when all looks like a waste of time, when all looks like needless suffering, I lean on one promise: And we know that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them that are called according to His purpose. See, I know that God is faithful to His promises and this promise means that no matter how I suffer, God will make it all good. Hebrews 10:23 promises, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that has promised.” Faithful is He who calls you and He will also bring it to pass. You may attack me; I may feel overwhelmed; I may feel like I am about to fail, but I will remember, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man but God is faithful who will not suffer you to be tempted about that you are able, but will with the temptations also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

See, He is my deliverer. He is my friend. He will keep me and preserve His purpose. I will keep the faith. The Lord is my light and my salvation. Who shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? And then, I will be able to proclaim myself a victor in the midst of the battle through His name. You see, we claim the victory of our Framers because we see the victory, post the event. They claimed the victory in the midst of the battle because they saw the victory through the eyes of faith. “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39)

We have victory because we have seen the end of this story. Revelations 21:4-8: “And God shall wipe away all the tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, no more sorrow, no more crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, it is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, the unbelieving, and the abominable, and the murderers, and the whoremongers, and the sorcerers, and the idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” So be on notice, enemy, I will not quit. I will not curse God, and you will lose. This is the strength upon which the revolution of ’76 was won. You can dispute me, you can argue with me, but this is the fact, and the Framers said it over and over and over again. “We have this consolation with us: The greater the battle, the greater the triumph, and heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods. And we should not be afraid to pay that price. Whom shall I fear? None, but the one who hung the sun and the moon and the stars in heaven; the one who knew me before I was even in my mother’s womb, and the one who has numbered every hair on my head; the one who calls me child, the one whom I call Father.” You see, that’s what I go to when I can’t go any further. And yes, I’m sorry, I will cling to my Bible because the Bible is the living word; a love letter from my Savior and my friend. Because He knows what it’s like; He knows what we face; He knows what we’re up against, because He suffered as well. He suffered more than we did, by the way. Can I just mention to you that he suffered the sins of the world?! The sins of the world were upon his back, to the point where he cried out and said, “Why have you forsaken me?” And in the same breath said, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.”

That’s the interesting thing about this perspective, isn’t it? I am the enemy of my enemy, but in reality, the enemy is not my enemy. Because you see, my enemy attacks me because they are ignorant. Come on now, you know it’s true. How many of you have ever tried to have a conversation with a liberal progressive? Seriously. Are you ever able to actually engage in a reasonable, argued, logical, discussion with a true liberal progressive? I think Ronald Reagan said that our liberal friends know lots of things; they just know lots of things that just aren’t so. So, you see, how do you hate someone that is completely ignorant? Can you hate someone who doesn’t have the information and makes mistakes based on their ignorance? How do you hate them for their outcome? Now, I will mention to you, I do not condone what they do; I will not support what they do. See, your politicians in Washington, DC, they may be ignorant in their destruction of the Constitution or they may be malicious in their intent to destroy it, but at the end of the day; seriously, at the end of the day, what does their intent matter, whether it be ignorance or wicked? Because, you see, at the end of the day, regardless of the intent, the result is exactly the same.

I don’t hate them. I really don’t. I pity them, for their ignorance; I pray for them. I pray that the light of truth will be opened in their eyes and in their ears; I pray that their spiritual wickedness will be overcome so that they will see that this liberty is a gift from God; they will see that we have hope. Our hope is not in government; our hope is not in men; our hope lies in the understanding that God is God and he cannot lie; and he makes for us promises that He will keep. You see, what we have to encourage us is this: though the battle is long and hard, and though we may fall, and though we may see defeat, the consolation is with us, that the triumph will be glorious and it is guaranteed.

Do you know the history that I teach; the 700 years that it took to create the Constitution is full of battles; full of people fighting spiritual wickedness in high places; rulers of the darkness of this world; those who would take liberty for their own personal gain; their own political ambition; their own power; to oppress those they perceive to be less than them; that’s what this is: 700 years of people saying, look, as they said in the Petition of Right of 1628: Liberty is the inherent possession of men and not the gift of government; and standing for that gift, a righteous cause. But you see, Alexander Hamilton said, “Experience is the oracle of truth and where its responses are unequivocal, they ought to be held to be sacred and conclusive. Can I mention to you, we have an unequivocal truth; an undeniable outcome, proven over history through our immediate 700 years that brought us to our Constitutional Republic; this unequivocal truth that when you stand for liberty, you will win. Time and time again, without fail, you will win. So with this encouragement, I want to ask you, are you willing to stand now and join the Liberty First Brigade?

Well, I hope that you feel just as encouraged as I do after the message that I received this morning. I want you to know that I am going to go through this day ready to take on the enemy. And I hope you are too! That’s what being part of the Liberty First Brigade is all about: being resolved; refusing to shrink from the service of your country, regardless of the fear that may lay in front of you: “I’m afraid to lose my job… I’m afraid to lose my house… I’m afraid to make my friends not like me… I’m afraid of the conflict that would come if I were to say something…”

Who shall I fear? Because, if you stand for the gifts of God, all you can say is, “the cause is just.” Whom shall I fear? I am reminded of the fourth verse of the Star Spangled Banner and I think its necessary to point out that there is some history to this; some people will tell you that the Star Spangle Banner has absolutely nothing to do with our independence from Great Britain; it has nothing to do with the establishment of liberty in this country; it was not written until the War of 1812, but what you need to understand is that Great Britain didn’t recognize our independence from them after the first revolution, and the War of 1812, our Framers called the second war for independence because it wasn’t until the conclusion of the War of 1812 that Great Britain actually recognized our independence from them.

And so, this last verse of the Star Spangled Banner,

“Oh thus be it ever, when free men shall stand, between their loved homes and the war’s desolation. Blessed with victory and peace, may the heaven rescued land, praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just. And this be our motto: In God is our trust. And the Star Spangled Banner, in triumph doth wave, o’er the land of the free and home of the brave.”

So much was on the line in this battle. Everything that they fought for in ’76; everything that they fought for to create the union; every bit of independence, every bit of sovereignty was on the line. Because you see, Great Britain was going to make one last-ditch effort to get the colonies back under subjection. Can you imagine? Living through the first war for independence and then seeing some thirty years later, everything that you sacrificed for, once again on the line. Can you imagine the utter sense of discouragement then? “Oh, here we go again.” But you see, they knew that liberty was worth it, and they knew that they had placed their faith in the right place: In God is our trust. So that they had hope, that the Star Spangled Banner of triumph would wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave. Because they knew their history, and they knew from experience that victory was theirs.

And I hope that I have encouraged you today; I have no idea where this has come from, but I hope that I have encouraged you today to look at your experience through life and see how you have become a conqueror over the enemies that assail you, and take that experience and make it into a future truth. And God will bless us; it is a promise.
