"Married? The Judicial Assault on your Unalienable, Natural Law Rights" ~ Don Mashak

Though this article focuses on the departures from the Rule of Law in the Divorce case of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki vs. David Rucki, this writer takes a broader perspective. That broader being one addressing the importance of enforcing adherence to the the Rule of Law and Due Process; both of which are not only statutory requirements but Constitutional and Natural Law Rights of every person. (Before we go farther, this writer asserts that he would write the same article if the roles of the parties were reversed.) This article is a follow up to the latest hearing relating to this matter from January 10, 2014 and a call to action for the upcoming January 27, 2014 hearing for Lawyer Michelle MacDonald.""

[The next round in this battle against injustice occurs,Monday, January 27, 2014 at 9 AM Dakota County District Court, 1560 Highway 55, Hastings, MN. State of Minnesota v. Michelle MacDonald Shimota, Court file no. 19HA-CR-13-2934]

Let us begin with an intellectual and emotional appetizer intended to make you non-lawyer types hungry for the rest of the story.

Imagine finding yourself in this scenario, you and your spouse have been married nearly 20 years. You have built a successful business and have five children. To settle the Divorce, you agree to take the family home of 14 years and have custody of your 5 children while letting your spouse have parenting time, the business, and other properties.

Somewhere along the line your spouse sits you and the 5 children down at the table with a gun and says either “you are going to kill everyone” or “you are only going to kill yourself”.

More than a year after the divorce is settled, you find out about a hearing that you were not party to. With no evidentiary hearing or finding of fact, Sheriffs inform you must be out of the house and cannot tell the children why. You drop the children off at school and go home and pack only the one bag that the Sheriff’s deputy will let you pack. Everything else is lost to you. The children are to be taken care of by an undisclosed third party. And you leave your home of 14 years.

A year later, during a hearing to restore the divorce agreement and regain custody of the children, your lawyer is arrested during the hearing for reasons yet unknown and you are told to leave, as obviously the hearing will not continue. You take the files and other property left in the court room so they do not become “lost”. You later learn that after you left, the Judgeresumed the hearing with your lawyer in handcuffs, without glasses, shoes, files or a client….

Later you find that the children are back with your spouse, but two of them have run away and not been seen in months.

That should be enough to get your attention and peak your interest. 

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

With that literary appetizer consumed, this writer hopes that the reader will find this writer’s perspective unique and thought provoking enough to be moved to action.

This writer sat in the Federal Court room in St. Paul, MN on January 10, 2014 and heard Judge Susan Richard Nelson ask Lawyer Michelle McDonald to produce Case Law Citations from the Federal 8th Circuit Court. As this writer listened, the following thought began to take root in this writers mind:

Can anyone wearing black robes arbitrarily deprive any US citizen of their Unalienable Natural Law Rights?

And with that thought, this writer set about answering this question using this thought process from one of his favorite recurring tweets:

You know those neat tricks & observations they use to catch the bad guys in major media and Hollywood shows? You need to start using them on your government. ~ @DMashak on Twitter (abbreviations & truncations removed)

And so we begin to use those neat tricks and observations to try to make sense of what has transpired and how Federal Judge Susan Richard Nelson should rule.

In the case of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, the facts of interest to this writer are these....

  • The Divorce of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki from David Rucki was complete May, 2011, more than a year before the September 2012 telephone “hearing”;
  • In the Divorce, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki received the home that the family had lived in for 14 years and custody of the 5 children. David Rucki received parenting time, the family business and several other properties;
  • At some point before September 2012, David Rucki sat Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and their 5 children down at a table and produced a gun. Sandra Grazzini-Rucki alleges that David Rucki threatened to kill them all. David Rucki’s position is that he only threatened to kill himself;
  • In September 2012, on the basis of a phone call that Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was not party to, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was required by Dakota County MN State Judge David L. Knutson to remove herself from the family home and not tell the children what was happening. It appears that Judge David L. Knutson is citing largely discredited ‘Parental Alienation” [Major Media video:] as the basis for his ruling;
  • Further, Ms. Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was ordered not to have any direct or indirect contact with the 5 children. Ms. Sandra Grazzini-Rucki reluctantly complied with the Court order. She drove the children to their schools and went home where she was only allowed to pack one bag. This all happened within 24 to 48 hours of the Judge David L. Knutson’s phone conversation which Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was not a party to;
  • An unknown third party was dispatched to the house to take care, custody and control of the children;
  • Judge David L. Knutson has since had all litigation in the county involving either of the two parties directed to him [A practice pioneered by corrupt Minnesota Judge Mary Yunker];
  • It is alleged that within the Court files are 3 letters from the local police indicating that various charges against David Rucki, including Domestic Abuse and violating restraining orders, should not be entered on the official record. Attempts to investigate how these letters came to be have, to date, been thwarted;
  • It is alleged that David Rucki has said on the record that he wanted Sandra Grazzini-Rucki to be left homeless and penniless. According to Ms. Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, Judge David L. Knutson has entered various orders (among the hundreds he has entered regarding her), which have left Ms. Sandra Grazzini-Rucki homeless and penniless;
  • Somehow the 5 minor children have since between returned to the custody of David Rucki;
  • Two of the minor children have run away and no one seems to be able to find them;
  • Those of you who have read my article from last week; “Judicial Corruption vs. 1 Minnesota Attorney with ethics, selflessness & a spine” know what happened next:

    In Closing:

    Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

    If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

    And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

    Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense”

    Keep Fighting the Good Fight!
