ANOTHER PATRIOT JAILED
By Betty Freauf
February 26, 2002
The Oregon Citizen's Alliance was birthed by Lon Mabon in the fall of 1986 from the grass-root conservative base which had risen to help a candidate trying to unseat globalist and Republican incumbent Senator Bob Packwood. Although many volunteers were political neophytes in the beginning and their candidate lost, that did not seem to deter Mabon and others under the auspices of O.C.A. to continue in their battle against the moral and political corruption in our state.
The Oregon Citizen's Alliance began to run initiatives. While their main thrust was to stop the homosexual agenda in Oregon, they also were strong pro-life supporters.
This made O.C.A. an immediate enemy of not only the homosexual community but the mainline media and many moneyed business people who strongly support the homosexuals.
Every campaign was thwarted by lies and misrepresentation by the homosexual community and endorsed by the mainline media. The homosexual opposition would manage to put their ads on the TV a few days before the election in the heavily populated areas where they knew the votes would be. Already strapped financially, this did not allow O.C.A. time to raise the money to counter the distortions.
At one of the O.C.A. meetings, a photo journalist and homosexual-rights activist by the name of Catherine Stauffer attended the meeting uninvited. When asked to leave, she refused. Scott Lively then O.C.A. executive director, escorted her out of the meeting. She then had her frivolous assault and battery lawsuit which had been the plan all along.
Judgments were granted to the plaintiff Stauffer in the amount of $30,000 each against O.C.A. and Scott Lively.
Recognizing these were frivolous lawsuits designed to break an organization that was trying to stop the homosexual agenda in Oregon, neither Lively nor O.C.A. bothered to pay the judgment. This was 11 years ago.
However, this lawsuit made Scott Lively decide if he couldn't beat 'em, he'd join 'em. This father and husband started law school and completed in record breaking time with top grades. Many O.C.A. supporters financially helped him with this endeavor. However, he discovered he could not get his license unless this $30,000 judgment was paid. Fund-raising letters finally helped him raise the required amount to settle the judgment which helped to sweeten the coffers of the homosexuals, the very group he'd been trying to defang.
In the meantime, Lon Mabon and O.C.A. were still faced with their judgment and pressure was being mounted for them to pay the initial judgment of $30,000 plus interest for all the years that had passed.
Mabon had been told earlier that the homosexuals were intent on breaking him. With every initiative he wrote, the vote was getting closer and closer to passage even with all the obstacles thrown in the way.
In an e-mail dated February 21, 2002, Bonnie Mabon, O.C.A.'s treasurer and Lon's wife, said they came to a point where they couldn't afford an attorney so they decided to defend themselves and had a peace about their decision but miraculously, that same week the Lord sent a man to them who had been investigating the oaths of judges in Oregon for several years.
In examining the underlying judgment and their case, it was determined the whole judgment was fraudulent and void because the judge that tried the case did not have a constitutional oath. He had self-worded his oath of office to the point that it was a far cry from the one he was suppose to take, which is laid out in the Constitution of the State of Oregon. In looking at the oaths of a lot of judges in Oregon, it was determined many had left out key words like "impartially." The judges now claim it was a clerical error. When all else fails, blame it on the secretary.
Bonnie continues by saying they started challenging the oaths of office of the judges in Oregon in all of their pleadings and filings, fighting off their attempts to go on a witch hunt through all of OCA's books and papers. In the process, the Mabons failed to appear at a hearing, filing papers instead which should have stopped their proceedings. She says the judges have blown them off like pesty mosquitoes and have ignored all their filings and have struck every thing they have said in the past, present and future and put Lon in jail.
Bonnie is scheduled to go to jail in ten days from Lon's Feb. 20th incarceration if O.C.A. does not come up with the $30,000 plus court costs, interests and attorney fees.
The media seems to be missing the whole point of this brave stand by the Mabons. One editorial declared LON MABON DESERVES JAIL TIME FOR BEHAVIOR. It went on to state "The right to appear in court and make your case to an unbiased judge is a bedrock of our freedom."
Lon Mabon would totally agree with that statement but unfortunately, most judges are biased. He and Bonnie appeared in court with more than 200 supporters. The court room couldn't hold them all. They stood behind the wooded railing and refused to enter the judge's territory in front of the railing until the judge would take a constitutional oath guaranteeing the Mabon's constitutional rights which the judge refused to do.
Lon refused to consent to an unqualified judge by the name of Ronald E. Cinniger, Multnomah County Courthouse, Portland, Oregon, who sentenced Lon to a remedial six months in jail or until he would comply with the judgment debtor hearing.
Of course, taking Lon away handcuffed was on the TV evenings news a number of times and the newspapers also covered the arrest but when a rally was held on Saturday morning and a candle-light vigil on Sunday night, the coverage was no where to be found.
In the mid 1980s a lovely Christian couple and their son went to prison in Oregon on false child abuse charges. The wife had a number of college degrees and had been a school administrator. The husband had been a Nazarene pastor. They decided to open some Christian pre-schools in their home town. Their son graduated from college and joined them.
The husband, a former veteran, told how a bullet barely missed killing him when he was a pilot during the war. He survived that only to be jailed for 40 months by the very country he went off to war to defend. The son was given five years, the wife 10 months. This couple is now elderly and in very poor health. The charges against them hurt them financially and they now live on or near the poverty line.
Lon alludes to his military service and he must feel the same way as the Nazarene minister, which, by the way, received no support whatsoever from the Nazarene church when he and his family were falsely accused.
But soon the homosexuals will be infiltrating the government-controlled 501 (c) 3 churches demanding positions of authority, i.e. preaching, teaching, song leaders, etc. And then who will be there to stand up for them? It will be Nazi Germany all over again.
Most judges will instruct the jury to judge ONLY THE FACTS, which are often skewed and evidence many times not allowed to be presented. However, we have some pretty dumb laws on the books and the jury, according to the constitution, is required to judge both the law and the facts.
This is when prudent juries must use their brain and conscience. Please call 1-800 TELJURY (1-800-835-5879) for a packet of information from the FULLY INFORMED JURY group which has been around for about 20 years but not every one has heard about them.
We are playing Russian roulette. Who will be next? My hat is off to all these brave people who, like our Founding Fathers, are willing to put their lives on the line against the tyrants that ever so gradually have taken over this once great Republic of ours. You can help save this nation. If not you, who? If not now, when? We can act like ostriches but sooner or later we are going to get kicked.
A fully informed jury could have prevented all this heart ache for the Mabons as well as other innocent people who have been and will continue to be falsely accused.
Lon and Bonnie can be reached by writing to P.O. Box 9276, Brooks, Oregon 97303.
