Restrictions on First Amendment speech rights warrant congressional investigation – later for impeachment

Ruchell Cinque Magee, gravely wounded, was the sole survivor of the Marin Courthouse Slave Rebellion on Aug. 7, 1970, led by George Jackson’s little brother Jonathan. That incident is still, a lifetime later, the Parole Board’s excuse for denying him parole, even despite a jury acquittal decades ago. He’s almost 81. Give him freedom for his birthday.

According to the Democrats, considerable efforts are being made to commence an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump because Trump told the government in Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son.

The same Democrats – mainly Joe Biden – supported Jim Crow restrictions in the Antiterrorist Act that was put in the law books by Bill Clinton in 1996, which told corrupted judges to deny indigent prisoners access to court. This act amounts to TREASON against the United States Constitution, making the First Amendment a deception.

According to federal law governing the writ of habeas corpus, no government restrictions may be allowed regarding the filing by people complaining of illegal government restraints.

The Supreme Court in 1963 made a decision entitled Fay vs. Noia (372 U.S. 391, 83 S. Ct. 822, 9 L. Ed. 2d 837), which upheld 200 years of no restrictions on habeas corpus filing.

Why? Because the lack of restrictions impeached those arguments in favor of keeping indigent people in prison on false convictions, once judged criminal or slave. However, since a war was building in Arab country – killings on both sides – the word TERRORIST has become the foundation for White Supremacy to make its move against peoples of color in the name of protecting the public. Meaning, there existed no one to publicly remind the American people that the Jim Crow device would encourage the poison growth of White Supremacy covering up its mob trial frameups.

Legal or political arguments today against endless miscarriage of justice in government frameups brought to public attention will remove all restrictions on the First Amendment, giving back the protective writ of habeas corpus as a fundamental right.

Denial of access to court to people who have been wronged by society shows clearly that actual prejudice exists. Judges ignoring the fact are equally guilty as the politicians who put that garbage in the law books.

A very long time being denied access to court without being able to raise my voice against a political frameup is worse than doing time in solitary confinement!

A lawsuit pending in federal court shows that the jurors on my state trial presented their acquittal. It asks for an injunction to stop the use of all government restrictions in violation of the double jeopardy clause of the United States Constitution’s Fifth and 14th Amendments.

The lawsuit is entitled Ruchell Cinque Magee vs. Steven Arkowitz et al. (2:19-cv-00172) before the U.S. District Court, Eastern District, at Sacramento, California.

The suit asks a constitutional question that judges fear to answer in public: “May the Parole Board agencies conceal the acquittal reflected in the record without violating the Fifth Amendment prohibition against double jeopardy prosecution?”

New evidence of the jury’s acquittal is reflected in documented declarations, in particular the one dated October 2010, notary stamped: “During deliberations, which commenced March 26, 1973, all 12 jurors agreed that the defendant was not guilty of violating Penal Code 209, Kidnaping for Purposes of Extortion.”

Publicly acknowledged by Donald Trump or his administration, the federal judge presiding would ignore the Democrats’ tainted gag restrictions and honor the acquittal and respect the constitutional law against the corruption complained of. People reading this information may ask: “Why did judges fail to correct the injustice shown to the court?”

My experience with judges leads me to believe that the politicians, Democrats and Republicans, joined White Supremacy organizations in developing and enforcing a duel set of social, economic and political realities, including reactionary dynamics designed to subject the indigent class to slave conditions in ways that our lives do not matter where certain reactionary groups want to play God above the people and above the law.

These corrupted judges, appointed by politicians, focus too much on the Jim Crow restrictions or loopholes upon changing issues showing false convictions that led to unlawful imprisonment and were never allowed to be corrected. How could the Democrats be more concerned with another European government having been told to investigate Biden’s son than in protecting the American people from slavery or terrorism so inhumane it amounts to a death sentence?

Mouthing off in the news about Democrats being better or Republicans being better at making progress or change never justifies the inhuman treatment of the indigent human beings.

The lawsuit shows facts supported by documents that this writer has been in the California state prison system since 1963 on false convictions. That is irrefutable.

When do the voters become aware enough to ask the presidential candidates what about the endless wait for justice by those with wrongful convictions? Like their slave institutions, the prisons, they have no respect for the law.

False convictions leading to imprisonment prove to be a transportation of slavery. Left uncorrected while mouthing off about insignificant facts takes the country into the direction of barbarism.

The political mentality of Democrats and Republicans is deeply institutionalized. It cannot protect what’s under the slave code. The Lincoln administration warned the public that those scared of the rights of life and liberty would come to destroy the Writ of Habeas Corpus, but they would be caught and exposed by those not scared of freedom.

The Jim Crow device represents a white supremacy apartheid where the Constitution applied deception such as a Jim Crow curfew on the indigent subjected to slave labor.

Impeachment of Trump will change nothing.   People fed up with damn drunks’ rejecting to think for ourselves will be the ones who bring about change for the better. Voting for the Democrat or Republican outfit to lead will change nothing, will not bring peace to the American hemisphere. Corruption in government as it stands today, the American people are better off not engaging in the presidential election.

Politicians close to the impeachment investigation are aided and abetted by reactionary groups who are hostile to the written Constitution. Any voters showing belief or trust in Republicans or Democrats have a train of misery to catch on its way to hell, with no possibility of parole.

Not knowing your enemy can become a death sentence. Knowing your enemy, but singled out for retribution, can also be fatal – a matter of life imprisonment or death – where there’s a lack of outside support to get your message to public.

Jury acquittal publicly acknowledged will compel the judicial system to honor the process guaranteed by written constitutional laws. The acquittal honored will cause wider investigation into police frameups as far back as 1955. Slave practicing – under color of justice.

Bill Clinton and Joe Biden will have to tell the public what they were thinking white supremacy style when they put restrictions in the law books that would be used by corrupt judges to deny people their right of access to court while committing assault on the jury system, including the prisoners caught up in the slave operation atmosphere.

Readers concerned may convey to community advocate Kim Kardashian that I have been trying to reach her regarding the public acknowledging the acquittal and showing the federal court.

I remain,

Brother Ruchell Cinque Magee

Send our brother some love and light: Ruchell Cinque Magee, A-92051, B3-278, P.O. Box 8101, San Luis Obispo, CA 93409. Ruchell is the longest held political prisoner in the world, facing every day the wrath and revenge of state and federal authorities for being the sole survivor of the Marin Courthouse Slave Rebellion led by George Jackson’s younger brother Jonathan, then 17, on Aug. 7, 1970, that ended with the deaths of the judge and the other rebels, Jonathan Jackson, James McClain and William Christmas.

Over the decades, Ruchell has told the story of the jury acquittal that should have released him, hoping to find the words that will move someone who can help him win freedom. He is not the only political prisoner in the U.S. tells all their stories. Those imprisoned during the Black Panther era are getting old. Don’t let them die in prison! Free ‘em all!

Following is perhaps the last article written by beloved Panther veteran and revolutionary journalist Kiilu Nyasha, a strong supporter of Ruchell. It was published under the headline “Ruchell Magee, longest held political prisoner in the world, heads to parole hearing” on March 2, 2018. Kiilu joined the ancestors on April 10, 2018.

Legendary activist Kiilu Nyasha asks you to join her in demanding freedom for Ruchell Cinque Magee

When you read this letter, please know and understand the following facts:

Ruchell is now 78 [now 80 in 2019] years old and will turn [81] in March. I have no trouble recalling his age; he’s just two months older than I.

He’s eligible for parole for several reasons, the most obvious of which is the federal three-judge order to release elderly prisoners to reduce the prison population that he points to in the letter. He also notes he’s (probably) the longest-held political prisoner in the world – 54 years!

I met Ruchell Cinque Magee 47 years ago in the holding cell of the Marin County Courthouse in the summer of 1971. Ru was soft-spoken, warm and gentlemanly in typically Southern tradition.

Originally from Franklinton, La., he was falsely charged with “attempted rape” for being with a White girl in KKK territory. He was 16 and sentenced to the infamous Angola State Prison.

On release eight years later, he was banished from the small town of his birth and forced to move to L.A. An only child, his mother died while he was incarcerated and – on information and belief – her house was confiscated, depriving Ru of his inheritance.

I had just returned to California from New Haven, Conn. Already familiar with courtroom injustice, racism and bias against Black defendants witnessed in two capital trials, it didn’t come as a surprise that Ruchell was getting a raw deal in the Marin Courtroom where he was frequently removed for outbursts of sheer frustration.

Ruchell took on the name Cinque after trying to escape his illegal incarceration of seven years – seven years in slavery. An African slave, Cinque, escaped the slave ship Amistad and established the right to escape slavery in Connecticut. In Ru’s own words, “Slavery 400 years ago, slavery today – it’s the same but with a new name.”

When the 17-year-old Jonathan Jackson invaded the Marin Courtroom Aug, 7, 1970, armed to the teeth, Ruchell seized the hour to join the rebellion with William Christmas and James McClain, on trial for assaulting a guard in the wake of the murder of Fred Billingsley, another murder of a Black prisoner. All were shot and killed except Ru, who suffered a serious wound and lay unconscious. For more information on Ruchell and Black August, you can access my blogspot,

Please take the time to write letters to the governor, legislators, lots of editors and online publications, and spread it all over social media. Fifty-four years in prison is outrageous! Let our brother live out his life in relative freedom for goodness sake. As far as I know, Ruchell has never physically assaulted anyone. He is truly a political prisoner.
