DumbAssity of the Day: Illegal Aliens LUUUV Colorado Stupremes

By Debbie Schlussel

This is kind of like telling people they’re not allowed to involve their hands in blowing their noses.



Thanks, Stupreme Yankee Gringos of Colorado For Making It Easier

And we wonder why the world–especially illegal aliens in our midst and dangerous terrorists seeking or succeeding in gaining entry–laugh at us.  The just love stupid yankee gringos like the majority of the Colorado Stupreme, er . .. Supreme Court.

Uh, since when do illegal aliens and non-legal residents have a right to privacy? And since when do lawbreakers have a right to privacy to break the law? This isn’t about two gay guys having sex in the privacy of their own bedroom.

And, in case you were wondering, the judge who was affirmed in this boneheaded decision, Judge James Hartmann, Jr., was a Bush nominee to the federal bench in 2008.


Judge James Hartmann Jr.: Illegal Aliens’ Dumb Gringo Friend on the Colorado Bench

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday that Weld County authorities violated the Fourth Amendment and privacy rights of suspected illegal immigrants when they used tax returns to potentially build hundreds of identity theft cases against them.

The ruling affirmed a decision by a Weld County district judge who suppressed evidence against one of the defendants. That judge said authorities had no probable cause to search the man’s tax returns and that the documents are confidential.

The defendant was one of more than 70 people charged with criminal impersonation and identity theft. . . .  The investigation, dubbed ”Operation Numbers Game,” marked the first and only time in the U.S. that authorities used tax documents to try to prosecute suspected illegal immigrants.

Prosecutors had said they believed as many as 1,300 immigrants were breaking the law and that they planned to charge more people. . . .

But in March, District Judge James Hartmann Jr. suppressed the evidence against one of the defendants, saying the search warrant was ”nothing more than an exploratory search based upon suspicion that some unknown person or persons” committed a crime.

He also said tax records were confidential under federal law and authorities had no right to inspect the documents.

And here’s why it’s even more absurd.  Is this, below, NOT probable cause? You can bet it would be for a U.S. citizen, using someone else’s identity. It’s absurd that it isn’t here:

Weld County authorities launched their investigation after a Texas man told them his identity was being used by a Greeley resident. The suspect in that case told sheriff’s investigators that he was filing taxes with Amalias’ Translation and Tax Services, a firm that catered to Latinos in the agricultural city of Greeley, where they comprise about a third of the population.

Investigators obtained a search warrant and seized thousands of tax documents from the business and used them to arrest dozens of people. The American Civil Liberties Union successfully sued on behalf of the business owner, saying the search of her property was illegal.

Ah, the trusty old UnAmerican Terrorists’ and Illegal Aliens’ Liberties Union.

This whole thing is ludicrous. And yet, it’s our reality. The ludicrous is sane. And the sane are now the ludicrous. G-d help this sinking nation.

A lot of us live in cities or go to college and are in situations where the city, university, etc. decide to have everyone read a specific book, in order to create ‘unity’. When we can, without reprisal, we should always suggest 1984 by George Orwell. It sounds trite, but 1984 is here, and people hardly read this book anymore.

Why can’t basic common sense be used by these judges instead of them looking at things through PC glasses? Laws have obviously been broken. I bet the judge would look at things differently if his identity was stolen or if his family was the victim of these illegal degenerates.

This guy probably hires illegals, but he also provides services to illegals. Our law enforcement officials should find every last one of these law breakers and deport them quickly. Our justice department should have an express lane installed at the court house for these illegals. Process them as quickly as possible and deport their sorry asses as quickly as possible back to that third world country called Mexico. As for muzzies, just take them about 500 miles off shore and throw them on a life boat where the only provisions are canned hams and prok rinds.

The One World Order Elitists will break our laws and commit treason to enable the Rockefeller CFR/Trilateral commission plan for a New World Order.

Every one of these traitors should be prosecuted for treason but the people that should be doing that job are members of the Rockefeller CFR/Trilateral commission. Our Government has been infiltrated by these slime balls at every level including the presidency and cabinet.90% of Barry Soetoro’s cabinet are members of one of the two Rockefeller groups.

Thomas Jefferson had it right when he said a revolution now and again would clean out the corruption….we are past due for another one!

I currently live in Colorado and this decision is dumb, dumb and dumb. Illegal aliens now get more rights than US citizens… expect jihadists to get similar treatment also down the road. The courts are not concerned with the safety of Americans and this country’s national security but with enabling its enemies. No wonder people think America lacks the will to defend itself at home which corresponds to a lack of resolve to act decisively abroad. Its a virus that is weakening America from within and nations are rarely subdued by an external enemy. They usually die from the thousand cuts of sabotage within their own gates.

G-d help America!

ICE management should have been aware that the Courts are most protective of federal tax returns. It was the intent of Congress to collect as much revenue as possible from pimps, pushers and prostitutes and yes illegal aliens. Veteran street agents have known this for years and acted accordingly.

ICE management has always prohibited agents from arresting hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens working in open view everyday throughout the country. The Obama Administration stopped all work site enforcement operations.

The only statistically significant arrests made by ICE are criminal aliens arrested by state and local police and by DRO fugitive teams.

ICE Office of Investigations is paying over 6,000 special agents six figures to sit around the office and wait for the next photo opportunity such as the counterfeit raids reported today. ICE could make similar seziures everyday. Instead they always say they are too busy chasing aliens, which everybody at ICE/OI knows is total bullshit.

ICE is a prime example of federal bureaucrats gone wild, spending billions of dollars of tax payer money, to do next to nothing.

“Uh, since when do illegal aliens and non-legal residents have a right to privacy? And since when do lawbreakers have a right to privacy to break the law?” As someone who supports privacy rights, I can’t go along with the premise of this article. I think these are loaded questions. My point is in the process of going after illegal aliens, I don’t want the ends to justify the means. To subpoena tax returns to establish evidence is not constitutional. Search warrants are to be specific to the evidence they are seeking. The ACLU and many libertarians such as Ron Paul and Bob Barr don’t want a government who will misuse search warrants. The government can’t just draw up search warrants and say “Well we didn’t find this evidence, but oh but while we were at it we got you for this.” As much as illegals shouldn’t be here, I don’t want people shredding our constitution to achieve their means. I think everyone has due process regardless if they are illegal or not. The problem is people will cheer if they rule in the favor of the prosecutor. Then they will cry when they use this precedent in other cases of legal citizens. Remember there were a lot of constitutionalists, libertarians along with liberals who didn’t like all the provisions of the Patriot Act.

“Bonzer Wolf” is dead on…where was ICE in all this? Oh yeah, investigating fake snow bunny ears or some other innate waste. Obama didn’t suspend worksite enforcement; ICE never did them because it “wasn’t part of the job”. The only time they did them was when ordered by the ICE Princess (the now defunct Julie Myers) to generate one for her publicity wagon. Never did any good anyway because the employer always got downwind of it. (Wasn’t from the groundpounders).

ICE is 99.99% legacy customs twits who wouldn’t know an illegal if it bit them on the ass. The other 1/10th are the legacy INS pole-puffers vying for position.

Your tax dollars at work!!!

Doesn’t that poor Texan, who had his identity stolen, have any rights?

We need a type of system where law breakers and insane lawyers should be held seperate from the community at large, and judges can be “re-tooled” to fit the needs of a capitalist, free society.

Re-Education Mini-Camp on December 15, 2009 at 7:58 am

Oddly, the ‘illegal alien’ part of this story is the least troubling aspect.

What this ruling does, is to allow ANY (read Acorn) tax advice operation to commit fraud against individuals and the IRS without a law that can stop them.

This particular outfit, Amalias’ Translation and Tax Services, has been absolved of participitating in an identity theft crime. Obviously, they will continue to flaunt the law and stuff cash into their pockets for years to come.

It also makes it impossible for any criminal that is using a false identity to hide income from their wives from being prosecuted as well.

I doubt that this court considered the results of their actions.

For the less informed, the Colorado Swift plant — you know, raids nationwide 12/2007 — is in Weld County where the tax place is located. District Attorney Ken Buck and his prosecutors submitted the 20 or 30 state Felony ID Theft warrants that were issued in conjunction with the ICE enforcement operation in Greeley. Thank you Ken for performing honest service for the taxpayers who pay your salary.

Oops, 12/2006 for Swift raids.

This is typical for Judge James Hartmann. In my personal experience, this Judge is a demented little psychopath. He has allowed my former employer, Dream Stone Marble & Granite to file a fraudulent lien on my home. The employers, through their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin, fraudulently swore by Motion that the Weld County Disctrict Court did not have jurisdiction over my accrued wage claim, because the matter was before the Colorado Division of Labor. On March 30, 2011 I obtained documents and evidence from Colorado Division of Labor Director Ellen Golombek, PROVING that Dream Stone, Inc. had worked a fraud upon the Court, causing me to be stripped of all evidence relevant to prosecute my case, a mere 16 hours before my scheduled deposition., and ultimately causing the dismissal of my case with prejudice, and a fraudulent award of attorney’s fees to the Defendants.

On March 31, 2011I sent staggeringly corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Francis Hartmann proof that Dream Stone, Inc. Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, Ida Murphy, and their criminally complicit counsel, Donelson, Ciancio, and Goodwin, P.C., had committed Class 3 Felony theft by deception. Hartmann has deliberately and maliciously disregarded the evidence, and he has been using, at taxpayer expense, the Weld County Sheriff’s Department to stalk, harass, intimidate, and terrorize me, and my family.

Hartmann screwed up my case…BADLY. This slimeball is too much of an egomaniacal worm to admit when he is wrong. My family and I are going to lose our home, in equal part because of the fraudulent acts of the Defendants, their criminally complicit counsel, and Judge James Hartmann. Further, I am currently facing criminal charges for “harassment” for demanding that Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, and Ida Murphy rempve their fraudulently obtained lien from my home. Weld County… it’s a third world country, the level of corruption is absolutely unbelievable.

    The true facts of the dispute between Mr. Craig D. Buckley and Dream Stone, Inc. (DS), and its owners, are found in the actual court documents. Both the Boulder County District Court and the Weld County District Court ruled in favor of Dream Stone, Inc., and its owners, Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, and, Ida (Eve) Murphy against Mr. Buckley.

    After DS obtained a TRO in Boulder County and settled with Buckley’s homeowner’s insurance, Buckley sued DS in Weld County for over $2 million (which he never mentions on the internet). Judge Hartmann (the Court) ultimately dismissed the case because Buckley would not abide by Court rules/procedures. Buckley refused to attend his first scheduled deposition. That was brought to the Court’s attention. The Court warned Buckley that if he did not attend the second scheduled deposition the case could be dismissed. Buckley refused to attend. The Court dismissed the case. There was NO default judgment. The issue of vacation pay was NOT a part of the dismissal. DS was awarded legal fees of approximately $20,000.00 which judgment was filed with the Clerk and Recorder of Boulder County. Judge Hartmann did nothing wrong in this case.

    Whatever has happened to Mr. Buckley has been his own doing. He is trying to destroy our reputations (as well as the reputation of our attorneys) through forums like this because he has been unable to succeed in forcing Dream Stone, Inc., and its owners, to pay him compensation and damages to which he is not entitled. We invite you to read the Court documents published on to find out the truth.

    Thank you,
    The Owners of Dream Stone, Inc.

Corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann should be removed from the bench. Hartmann is known, at this present time, to be aiding and abetting Class 3 Felony Theft by Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, Ida (Eve) Murphy, of Dream Stone Marble & Granite (aka Dream Stone, Inc.) and their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel Goodwin, of Donelson, Ciancio, and Goodwin, P.C..

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is exercised under cover of law, and with the colors of justice …”

Dream Stone, Inc. Victim on November 27, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Weld County District Court Cheif Judge James Hartmann is a Felon. He has allowed my former employers to file a fraudulent lien on my home, and force me into foreclosure. I sued the employers for accrued wages due. They swore to the Court that the matter was before the Colorado Division of Labor, while simultaneously swearing to the Division of Labor that the matter was before the Court.
I was stripped of all evidence necessary to prosecute my case, in a fraudulent sua sponte ruling by this corrupt little shit, a mere 16 hours before my scheduled deposition. I filed motion for protective orders: denied. I refused to submit to deposition by an officer of the Court whom had worked a fraud upon the Court. The Court had, in fact lost jurisdiction over this matter prior to this through a previous fraudulent ruling by Hartmann. Anyway, this asshole dismissed my case with prejudice, awarded the defendants in excess of $20,000.00 in attorneys’ fees, and the employers immediately slapped a fraudulently obtained lien on my home. In psychopath Hartmann’s scathing order dismissing my case, he stated that, “the Plaintiff seems to think he can make serious unfounded accusations against the defendants and counsel with impunity”.

I discovered the lien in November 2010 after having been approved to refinance, dropping my mortgage payment from $1500 to $1100 per mo. We were unable to refi, due to the lien which was filed in violation of the Colorado Homestead exemption, C.R.S. 38-41-201. ACCORDING TO LAW, OUR HOME WAS EXEMPT PROPERTY. Now, on one income, we can no longer afford the $1500 per mo. payment, and thanks to this degenerate f*ck, we are going to lose our home.

On March 30, 2011, I received irrefutaple evidence form Colorado Dept. of Labor and Employment Director Ellen Golombek proving that the employers had lied to the court in order to strip me of all evidence. That’s a felony, and Hartmann is an accessory: also a felony.

Evidence here:

The so-called serious unfounded accusations were now wholly substantiated, and on March 31, 2011, I mailed psycho-Hartmann the proof. The result: he knew he had been caught in a fraud upon the Court, so he immediately set about using, at taxpayer expense, the Weld County Sheriff’s Dept. to stalk, harass, and terrorize me and my family. The point: yes, he is a dumbass, but a very dangerous, highly unstable, degenerate psychopath of a dumbass. Be careful, stay away frpom this asshole, or you may end up getting your home taken away from you for ‘hurting his feelings”. You may wish to be careful what you write, we have no idea what this individual is capable of. As for me, it’s too late.
