After the verdict was read, it would take 6 months before my Sentencing. Not much happened in this time, so I will sum up all 6 months in this one post. During those months, it would be a barrage of legal actions; the OathKeeper 2, 3 and 4 trials. But for the most part, I just stayed to myself. I almost never left my cell, I was entirely preoccupied with two personal pet projects. OK, sorry, I am gonna nerd out pretty hard here, so bear with me folks. One of my projects was to create a 50 Card Magic the Gathering Deck (Commander) from scratch. Using pink erasers, I scrubbed ALL the symbols/numbers off a deck of playing cards, so that they were blank white cardboard on one side. Using a pen, I traced the card on sketch paper, and then went over the outline over and over until the paper separated into a little paper card. I had gotten my hands on an Elmer’s Glue Stick, which I used to affix the paper card to the real one. I did this 50 times. @MontanaSiniff and I had met each other by playing #MagicTheGathering at a Hilliard, OH Comic/Card shop called Pack Rat. We both had the same Commander, with a similar build for our Magic Decks (An Abzan deck – “Ghave, Guru of Spores”). This inspired me to make my hand drawn deck into an Abzan Deck.

[Warning: loosely-J6 related, massive nerd dump in progress] I made my hand drawn Magic deck J6 themed. (For those who might be asking why not a Jeskai Deck [red/white/blue]- it’s because the Deck was centered around Washington,DC [black lands are SWAMPS (hence the DC Swamp), and Washington is famous for greed – green]. I digress. Most of you have no idea what I am talking about. Just take me at face value here, that it’s all very clever. Anyway, it took me MONTHS to hand draw these cards. @MontanaSiniff will post some pictures of these cards for y’all. (@MontanaSiniff, will you share a few of my homemade cards? Probably the one of the Capitol Building that I named “Corruptia, Citadel of Greed” and also the Jacob Chansley card that I called “Dogface, The Liar”. His creature type is Pony Soldier. I named the card from Joe Biden’s quote “You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier” lololol. His Power and Toughness are 1/7. Why? 17 = Q. I thought it was clever.). I made Montana and me into Commanders too. My Power and Toughness are 1/6 (Jan 6). Yeah, lol. It was a fun project, and it made the time fly by. Some of the cards came out badass! I did one of Sergeant Thau, with “Tap: Do 2 Damage to Target Creature” and the flavor text says “we need more f***ing munitions”. I did an Alternate Art version of the classic Magic Card Overrun, which came out pretty cool, which showed the Lower West Terrace, with people waving flags. It’s nifty. I made a bunch of actual Magic Cards too; Command Tower, Demonic Tutor, Sol Ring, Marsh Flats, and so forth. The deck is totally playable too. Someday I will share ALL the cards. It’s pretty decent, and doing that much artwork was fun and kept my mind active. OK, I swear that I’m done nerding out now.

Another interesting thing that happened in that 6 months is that I met a new and amazing friend; another J6er named Micki Larson-Olson. She was in jail for mere misdemeanors, having to serve only (I think) 3 months. She refused to wear a mask, so they kept her in “The Hole” the entire time. I tried to tell her to do what me and the J6 boys did; tie a string around the ear-straps of the mask, and wear it around your neck. When a “White Shirt” (Lieutenant or higher) comes on the Unit, duck your nose down into the mask and walk away. It looks like you’re wearing a mask so you don’t get yelled at, but circumvents the Mask-Nazi’s. She wouldn’t do it, so me and her only met during “Outside/Inside Rec”. We would sit and talk on the bleachers in the Basketball Court. Pauline had left 6 months prior, so it was just me and her. She was the only other J6er female in the DC Gulag, so she was the only other one who had any clue what I was talking about. Micki will be a great friend of mine for the rest of my life, and I miss her very much! (:[) After she left, I felt so isolated again. But our GTL Tablets were allowing us to make phone calls from our cells, so I called her basically like every day after that. Sometimes like 5 times in a row, lol. Micki is a great patriot, a wonderful American and a veteran. She’s someone I am proud to know, and a friend for life.

Once my Magic Deck was complete, I had no creative outlet. But. I DID have the Computer Lab and LOTS of time. So, I reached for that back burner project; MY BOOK! I had spent countless hours on it already, having written up to (I think) Chapter 8. My novel is a “fan-fiction” (more info coming soon!). It’s fantasy novel (sequel coming when I get released). The novel is split into 3 Books (Acts). Each “book” is composed of 12 Chapters (total of 36 Chapters) plus a Prologue and an Epilogue. The book is (if I remember correctly) like 750,000+ keystrokes long, 520 Pages, and has like 120+ characters. I have also drawn the book cover, binding, and 41 illustrations (one for each chapter). My book is so complicated that I had to create an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of it all. My book is laden with comedy, tragedy, poetry, and songs. It’s completely family-friendly, but there IS some violence (nothing too graphic); that’s just the nature of the series by the original author. I wove in a lot of American values into the book; ideas of justice, respect, equality, and love of community (you know, everything the Biden Regime despises). I made the book to fall completely in line with the world of the original author. I can’t wait to release more information on that front. Being that the book is a “fan fiction”, I cannot sell the book for personal profit. That being stated, I CAN ABSOLUTELY sell the book for CHARITY. So, my plan is to donate the proceeds to @Preborn – a charity that provides ultrasounds to mothers considering an abortion. I had originally thought to donate the money to Shriners Hospital or St. Jude. But I figure they make plenty in donations already, and so I thought my donations would be better served by saving the unborn from the genocide of abortion. Yes, I realize that you Libbies will never buy my book now, because you hate rescuing babies. But that is a price I am willing to pay (>:]) Hopefully, I will be able to start taking pre-orders soon.

As my Sentencing drew nearer (set for May 26th, 2023) I had to have what was called a Presentencing Investigation (PSI). The lady asked me a bunch of questions, and she was really nice. I told her everything truthfully, and accurately as possible. But little did I know, she was doing something she wasn’t supposed to do – work with the PROSECUTORS. They’re supposed to side with the Defendant, not the Government. But in my case, she did the opposite. She recommended that Kenneth Harrelson serve 12 years, Kelly Meggs Serve 18 years, Stewart Rhodes Serve 21 years, and me… they wanted to put me in prison for 14 YEARS! I was ASTONISHED! They almost threw EVERY Enhancement at me. They used my INDICTMENT as the guideline for my PSI, not the Trial itself. Well, my Indictment was full of lies, miscontextualized statements, and obfuscations; all of this was proven in Trial. But the PSI ignored trial, and instead used the out-of-date/inaccurate Indictment against us to craft our PSR (Presentencing Report). It was just as unfairly biased, and essentialy did the bidding of the DoJ. It was BAD!

She used items like “Destruction of Government Property” and “Seditious Conspiracy” against me, despite being found NOT GUILTY of these charges (believe it or not, they can use what’s called “Acquitted Conduct” against you at sentencing. So if you’re found NOT GUILTY they can still punish you anyway. Yeah… facts. Welcome to America’s “Justice System”). They used my statement against me, where I said “…look at my face before I went in the hallway, I was laughing, smiling and having a good time. Then look at my face after I came out of that hallway. I wasn’t laughing at all…” Even though it’s 100% true that I wasn’t laughing AT ALL when I came out of the hallway (in fact I looked miserable), they said that this statement was tantamount to perjury, and because the Government deemed that a lie, they said it an act of “Obstruction of Justice” and enhanced me more. They threw almost every enhancement they could at me. When the Government read our PSI’s, they smiled wide and said “I will see your PSI and raise you one Terrorism Enhancement” (yes I like poker, sue me). Yup. The Government upped ALL of our Sentences with a TERRORISM enhancement: Harrelson – 14 Years, Meggs – 21 Years, Rhodes -25 Years, and me – 18 YEARS!). I was astonished. My mental health took a nose dive again. I wanted to die again. I had expected something closer to “Time Served”, or maybe do up to a year in prison at most. Nope. The Government wanted us in prison for DECADES. I went into a tailspin, but my problems were only about to get worse. With our Sentencing came a new world of hell. After our trial, the Jail staff kinda eased up on us. Lancaster was still a b****, I heard she peppersprayed a J6er for not wearing a mask. But by-and-large, things had calmed down. But that was not to last. The jail was about to throw all the Oath Keepers into Solitary Confinement and begin to target us and mistreat us. Severely.
