    Just got a a call from someone claiming to be a volunteer for Planned Parenthood, saying that they were endorsing Tim Keller for mayor in the runoff election, and asking me to support Keller.

    When I asked how he got my name and number, he said it’s “public information.”

    NO, I will NOT be supporting Keller.

New Mexico Supreme Court ousts Aztec magistrate from office

SANTA FE (AP) — The New Mexico Supreme Court has removed Aztec Magistrate Court Judge Connie Johnston from office for misconduct that a state commission said included dishonesty, surreptitious recording of private conversations in the courthouse and abuse of her judicial power of contempt.

The high court’s order issued its order Monday following a hearing on the Judicial Standards Commission’s April 10 petition seeking removal of Johnston from office.

Her term was set to end in December of 2018.

The commission’s petition cited Johnston’s “dishonesty shown in committing various acts of willful misconduct and throughout the commission’s proceedings, including her false statements under oath as well as her concealment of surreptitious recordings that she was ordered to disclose but kept secret until midtrial when she perceived a personal advantage to disclosure.”

(The first judge to go since we started this campaign was Pamela Smith from Sierra County.)

IPRA request revealed explicit emails on judge’s account by DeJanay Booth

It would seem that the New Mexico judicial system isn’t exempt from the Inspection of Public Records Act [IPRA].

The NM Foundation for Open Government [NMFOG] has the details on how to submit an IPRA request, including a sample request in PDF format.

Stupidity, Insanity and Evil in LP Land, Part the Nth

Recently, Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown (D-KKKalifornia) signed a bill making it no longer a felony to knowingly infect someone with HIV [1].

Whatever happened to government being the defender of our lives, liberties, properties and pursuits of happiness[2]?

Instead, government is becoming more and more a plunderer and pillager of that which it’s supposed to protect[3].

What particularly irks me about this is that there are some who call themselves “libertarians” who prefer to let the State (in this case, Moonbeam Brown) not only define their ethics and morality, but then insist that they’re the ones abiding by the Zero Aggression Principle

I guess this is what you get when you lower your standards and insist that “everyone is a Libertarian, they just don’t know it yet.”
