1st Amendment Right to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances

As many of you know, this writer been on the forefront of seeking Judicial and Fiscal TAR(Transparency, Accountability and Reform) in the State of Minnesota.

On most occasions involving the minutia regarding these efforts, this writer has chosen to write in other professional publications and websites. With regard to litigation related to this Judicial TAR efforts, this writer’s preference has been to post on, which specializes in the legal profession.

However, an event has occurred which this believe warrants widespread distribution and repudiation and merits being written as a story for the general public.

This writer has been posting on for
more than a year. closed this writer’s entire account after he posted his FRAP 35/40 Petition regarding the unlawful and unconstitutional punishment and reprisal he is receiving for being perceived as one of the leaders of 100’s of Minnesotans. 100’’s of Minnesotans who have been seeking since 2005 to Petition the Minnesota State House and Judiciary Committee’s for Redress of Grievances. 100’s of Minnesotans who wanted to give evidence and testimony of corruption in the Minnesota State Judiciary. The JDSupra link to the article which was up for a few days is:
(A link to another location for the FRAP 35/40 Petition appears later in this article)
Now, on its face, there is nothing wrong with a private publication deciding not to publish 1 article… but why would they remove an entire year’s worth of this writer’s articles. What are they or someone else afraid of?
The event becomes even more sinister looking when refuses to answer any written request via email or Twitter for an explanation of the dramatic event of removing this writer’s entire account and all of his long running postings. Apparently has something to hide.
When a publication refuses to provide any response to why it killed an article, let alone an entire series of a writer’s articles, it smacks of censorship. And if it was ordered by a Court or Government Agency, it sounds like a violation of the 1st Amendment Right to Freedom of the Press.

Subject: removal of my FRAP 35/40 motion and my entire account
Is it too much to trouble you as to why you deleted my FRAP 35/40 Petition and my entire account?
Is the 8th Appellate Court or any other Government agency telling you to repress this article?
Did the FRAP 35/40 Petition so clearly expose the corruption of the courts that you did not want other lawyers, judges and citizens seeing it?
It has been several days since my first request for your reasons.
Sans your answer to these questions, I will invoke the judicial principle regarding failure to respond. Your failure to respond will be viewed as an indication that our truthful answers to
these questions would be detrimental to your position.
I will be writing an article today with regards to this issue.
I have given you more than ample opportunity to respond previously.
