September 2, 2015, UPDATE: I received a response from WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson regarding my letter and COMPLAINT.

     It is both amusing and annoying... What can I say? Attempting to communicate with government employees about things that they do not want to deal with is amusing and annoying. The documents I sent to AG Bob Ferguson were passed on to an assistant attorney general in the Labor and Industries Division. Obviously, Ferguson did not want to supervise his underlings in Labor and Industries Division. He did not want to keep himself informed of what his underlings are doing...
     Government is a mess because there is no leadership at the top who insist on all government employees following their Oath of Office. The primary focus of all government employees is revenue generation and protecting their job. That is it! That is all they care about. Government is corrupt.
     Here is the incomprehensible letter from AAG Linda Williams:

    She says in her first sentence that I left a voice mail. I didn't. Is she confusing me with another annoyed victim of unconstitutional bureaucratic citations? Good grief! I had to respond in order to correct her inaccuracies. What a mess! These people are pitiful! Here is my letter back to her, mailed today:
September 5, 2015

TO: Assistant Attorney General Linda Williams
Labor & Industries Division
P.O. Box 40121
Olympia, WA 98504-0121

FROM: Russ Hinds
1****** **** Ln
Elk, WA 99009

Dear AAG Williams,

Thank you for your written correspondence dated August 21, 2015, regarding my packet of documents which I sent to AG Bob Ferguson as instructed by U.S. Attorney Mike Ormsby. However, I do not appreciate being totally confused by the inaccurate statements made in your correspondence!

Your first sentence thanks me “for your recent voice mail.” Sorry, I have not left a voice mail with AG Ferguson's office. I simply followed Ormsby's instructions to seek resolution through the WA AG's office by sending Ferguson a copy of my Complaint seeking enforcement of 18 USC 241 and 242, which was filed with Ormsby's U.S. Attorney's Office.

Your next paragraph points out that your office cannot “provide legal advice to citizens.” I am not looking for legal advice, I am looking for government employees who will competently take actions according to their Oath of Office/Attorney and correct bureaucratic over-reach and violations of our Supreme Law of the Land. May we have an honest conversation “citizen to citizen” regarding your constitutional directives as a public servant to support our Supreme Law of the Land? Good neighbors do their civic duty to support our Supreme Law of the Land. Much life, limb, and treasure has been given to defend our Supreme Law of the Land and preserve it for our posterity...

Now, I regret to say that it is impossible to communicate with neighbors employed by the government who seem to communicate in inaccuracies and wrong assumptions. For clarity of understanding between you and I, let me correct your letter by sentence. Your words are in italics:
“Your complaint and phone message indicate that you plan to file a lawsuit for the violation of your constitutional rights.”
There was no phone message. Are you confusing my correspondence with another victim of government over-reach who phoned your office in distress seeking relief from public servants who ignore their Oaths of Office and our Supreme Law of the Land? Please help the poor guy! He is your neighbor, not an enemy of the state!
As you should be able to see from the correspondence I sent you, I do not intend to file a lawsuit, rather, I am continuing to look for government employees who will do their good neighbor civic duty to uphold and abide by our state and federal constitutions and correct the mistakes of bureaucrats who issue citations which fine people for posting truthful fliers on private bulletin boards in violation of our 1st Amendment to our Bill of Rights. Then, these same bureaucrats deny their good neighbor the constitutionally protected right to a speedy trial by jury of good neighbors.
The correspondence I sent you clearly seeks enforcement of U.S. Code 18 242 and 241 through the office of U.S. Attorney Mike Ormsby. His office, along with the FBI, are charged with enforcing the U.S. Code. Are their any government employees who will do their job competently and with good conscience? That is all I am asking. We have state and federal constitutions which were written expressly for government employees to do their job by. I do not need to file a lawsuit to ask my government employees to do their job correctly. Now, I know that is not difficult for anyone to understand, however, government employees and politicians have been ignoring our Supreme Law of the Land for so many decades, it may take an epiphany on their part to bring them back to simple reality. Please have that epiphany, if you can.
According to the constitutions, the powers of government are divided into three branches, NOT CONSOLIDATED IN THE BUREAUCRACY. Meaning--according to our state and federal constitutions, bureaucracies cannot write regulations, statutes, and laws; enforce regulations, statutes, and laws; and adjudicate regulations, statutes, and laws. Our Declaration of Independence was written because the king's minions were doing just that to the colonists at the time prior to the U.S. Revolutionary War, 1775-1783. [Why do I have to write this stuff for my government employees?]
Based on the paperwork you submitted, it appears that you did not prevail in your proceedings with the Office of Administrative Hearings.”
After denying my request for a speedy trial by jury, Administrative Law Judge Mark Kim made it illegal for himself to abide by his Oath of Attorney by stating quote, “The Office of Administrative Hearings is unable to render an opinion regarding the constitutionality of 19.28 RCW. Addressing these arguments falls outside of the scope of what this Tribunal has authority to address. '[T]he power of an administrative tribunal to fashion a remedy is strictly limited by statute.'” How crazy is that? Good neighbors do their civic duty to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land. Does ALJ Mark Kim believe that his civic duty has been removed from him by statute?
Our records indicate that you appealed this decision to the Spokane County Superior Court, where the decision of the Administrative Hearings Board was affirmed.”
Both judges, Marianne Mareno and Gregory Sipolt, each hearing one of the two citations issued for the same flier on the same bulletin board on the same day, denied my requests for my constitutionally protected right to a speedy trial by jury. Evidently, they decided to pretend that our state and federal constitutions do not exist, and that their Oaths of Office do not exist. Both judges ignored my right to publish a list of my skills, and agreed with AAG Angela Zurlini, when she incorrectly stated in her trial brief, “Mr. Hinds does not have a right to a jury in this case.” Zurlini simply threw our Supreme Law of the Land out the window. The citations could have been resolved in less than six weeks if my constitutionally protected right to a speedy trial by jury would have been granted hastily following the issuance of the citations. Dozens of government employees making a mockery of justice and conducting a circus of nonsense attempting to convince me that I am a bad neighbor who deserves to pay the government employees $1500.00 for hanging an innocent flier on a private bulletin board simply is not going to work with me. If government employees accuse me of being a bad neighbor who is a danger to his neighbors in order to justify fines and loss of liberty, then we have a constitutionally prescribed process to determine guilt or innocence, the speedy trial by jury. What I am writing here in this letter is simple and clear. Any good neighbor on a jury panel would be able to clearly understand what I have written here. AND, that is exactly why government employees have denied my constitutionally protected right to a speedy trial by jury in order to preserve their “policing for profit” scheme. Bureaucracies get away with their schemes because our neighbors know that our public servants will not abide by their Oath of Office and that it costs more to dispute an unconstitutional citation than to just pay the fine. Me thinks you guys are not supposed to work that way.
The Washington State Court of Appeals further agreed with the Board.”
The Washington State Court of Appeals did not rule on the Board's decision. Rather, my Request for  Fee Waiver was denied by the Washington State Supreme Court. The Court of Appeals never heard my case.
Although your fine was reduced, it is clear you were dissatisfied with the outcome.”
Neither of the unconstitutional fines were reduced. I am dissatisfied with the outcome, and I am dissatisfied with communication that contains so many inaccuracies that it makes communication impossible.
Further, your letter expresses your frustration because you were cited because you put up a flier indicating that you perform electrical work.”
I have been performing electrical work since the time I was in high school, then throughout all of the jobs I have had in construction, maintenance, and government employment. I have never sought government permission to perform my services for my employers or any of my good neighbors who needed my services.
While I empathize with your exasperation, there is no further action that can be taken on the matter by this office.”
Constitutionally bound public servants should not exasperate the public whom they are supposed to be serving under the constraints of our state and federal constitutions. In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution.” THOMAS JEFFERSON
There is more your office could do in keeping with your Oath of Office/Attorney, but your “empathy” is appreciated. Good grief! Why not be a normal human being and give a care about our Supreme Law of the Land and the life, limb, and treasure sacrificed to preserve the Supreme Law of the Land? What “invisible hand” is keeping you from being a normal human being who cares about her neighbors?
I understand that you plan to file a lawsuit.”
No, I do not plan to file a lawsuit. That would be a waste of time and money. However, I am still looking for government employees who are willing to abide by our state and federal constitutions, and their Oath of Office/Attorney. I have all the evidence you need in order to correct and constrain out of control bureaucracies and government employees. Just ask for the evidence, and I will gladly provide it to you.
Please do not hesitate to contact me directly to address further concerns.”
I have contacted you directly through this letter in order to address further concerns. My letter is written in simple English which any literate American ought to be able to understand. The points that I made are clear and concise and cannot be refuted because they are true. It is your duty as a public servant to abide by and preserve our state and federal constitutions for ourselves and our posterity. If you cannot bring yourself to do your civic duty, then you should not be in public office.
As a citizen not employed by the government, I have limited resources to hold government employees to their Oath of Office. That is precisely why we have Oaths of Office for our public servants!
Obviously, the vast majority of public servants ignore our Supreme Law of the Land and their own Oath of Office/Attorney while they use the full force of government resources to obliterate an individual's rights and liberties. WASHINGTON STATE CONSTITUTION Article 1 Section 1 “All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.”

You, Linda Williams, have our state and federal constitutions to back you up should you decide to uphold them rather than pretend that they do not exist. Please do not follow the crowd employed by the government who are blindly leading our once great country into tyranny in order to generate revenue and protect their jobs. Please feel free to call or write. I would love to hear from you again.

    My goodness! Am I communicating with children? Are there any adults employed by government? Can I maintain any hope for government employees? Can they be saved? Can they be taught to abide by their Oath of Office/Attorney?
    Children like to play "pretend." Make believe land is great fun for children. Government employees like to pretend unalienable rights do not exist. La-la land is great fun for government employees... They like to pretend that the people they persecute and extort are bad guys... because that generates revenue for their salaries, benefits, and pensions...
    They need the epiphany out of la-la land...


  1. People keep going about this all wrong and wonder why they keep losing to these corporations that have no jurisdiction over the living...nobody takes the time to file an Affidavit of Truth against these corporations and their employees committing ultra vires acts at will...When filing an affidavit of truth the violators must respond point by point and these people remain silent because they are incapable of responding and overriding your Affidavit because they must testify under penalty of perjury and under commercial liability and remain silent and don't meet the deadline you place for their rebuttal response that must bear their signature endorsement that is certified to be true, correct and complete, then by your silence, you admit that you are a knowing party to this artifice or scheme to deprive us of our intangible right of honest services [cf.18 U.S.C. Sec. 1346] thereby subjecting you to suit in an environmental court system without the United States. Additionally, by your silence, you are deemed to be in full agreement with the material Facts stated herein. Beyond that reasonable deadline, and by their silence they activate estoppel [see e.g.: Carmine v. Bowen, 64 A. 932 (1906)], which constitutes Fraud [see: United States v. Tweel, 550 F.2d 297 (1977); see also: 18 U.S.C. 1341 (mail fraud), 1961 et seq. (RICO)]...get the picture folke...we defeat them by their own system....wake up people!

  2. Thanks for the comment. Much appreciated, but simple civilized and true communication ought to be the norm between government employees and citizens. Meaning: The citizen ought not need to know all the obscure rules to get though court hearings with our constitutionally protected rights intact.
    Your advice may be good, but I really doubt that they would pay any more attention to your tactics than they did mine. It is like I said, "Government employees are most concerned with raising revenue and protecting their job--the government status quo.
    Keep it simple. Constitutional government is simple. The government we have now is idiocy!
