Meet the new face of J.A.I.L.

Remember when South Dakota J.A.I.L. distanced itself from JAIL4Judges because of a perception that national group was a “bunch of wacko Californians“? It tried selling South Dakota, Bill Stegmeier, as “a regular American, trying to do the right thing.” It also brought in Jake Hanes as “campaign media coordinator” and he is South Dakota J.A.I.L’s main contact person.

So now that J.A.I.L. claims to have rid itself of wackos, let’s take a look at the new face of J.A.I.L. Here is a picture that Jake Hanes uses for his identity on his MySpace website. The caption? “Rise Up!!”


Here’s another shot of Jake and his toy:


But Jake isn’t the only one appearing in his MySpace photos. Here’s Jake with Stegmeier (on the left) dressed up as a couple outlaws:


On his MySpace site, Jake captioned the photo, “Who would follow these bozo’s [sic]?” That’s an excellent question considering that when Jake posted the picture at another MySpace user’s site he captioned it, “Gettin ready for the war.” Yep, just good ol’ regular Americans “trying to do the right thing” by rising up and getting ready for a domestic war.

At least the J.A.I.L.ers are consistent. After all, JAIL4Judges often pointed to the threat posed by the New World Order (“NWO”). And Stegmeier’s personal blog (since removed) asserted, among other things, that 9/11 was a government conspiracy.

One of the ideas behind MySpace is to create networks of like-minded individuals. So Jake has formed and is the leader of a MySpace group called the “Sioux Falls Sociopaths.” He is also a member of a group called “Survivalists Against the NWO.” His list of MySpace friends include:

  • Erin(911 Truth) and Anais, both of whom have plenty to say about the plans of the Illuminati and NWO to control the world;
  • Militia Dude, who talks about “UN Cremation [sic] trucks” operating in New Mexico and Montana and provides links to sites that give the “real truth” on the NWO and concentration camps in the U.S.;
  • You’ll Never Take ME ALIVE NWO!, who tells us that not only was the U.S. government responsible for 9/11 but the “NWO along with the Illuminat, [sic] want to create a one world government with one currency, one religion, and one leader”; and,
  • 9-11 was a Fraud!, which seems self-explanatory.

And I certainly can’t leave out another of Jake’s MySpace friends. That would be Amendment E. Poor Amendment E doesn’t seem to have a lot of MySpace friends. It does have a blog, although it “is set to private. This user must add you as a friend to see his/her blog.” Seems odd a group pushing accountability would hide its blog. Of course, while they want to abolish immunity for average citizens and public servants because it is so horrible, Section 20 of the amendment grants total immunity to J.A.I.L.’s “special grand jury” and those working with it.

It seems the new face of J.A.I.L. is no different than the old face. South Dakotans are being asked to throw out their system of government by extremists who see conspiracies lurking around every corner and who think its cute to pose as outlaws or revolutionaries with mock weapons and call themselves “sociopaths.” Distressingly, the latter description may be closer to the truth than we suspect.

Ignorant, restless desperadoes, without conscience or principles, have led a deluded multitude to follow their standard under pretense of grievances which have no existence but in their imaginations.

Abigail Adams, Jan. 29, 1787 letter to Thomas Jefferson

    Are you serious, 7:13? Maybe a Timothy McVeigh sense of humor. Those are the kinds of pictures they find after a school shooting, then everyone sits around wondering why no one did anything.

    Now your fear mongering, maybe we should just go back the the old days before 1872(which by the way is when the doctrine of ABSOLUTE judicial immunity was created) and if everyone had a side arm the crime rates would go down. Where was the Chaos prior to 1872 when judges were accountable?
    I’d expect that kind of reaction from a 2nd amendment bashing gun grabbing neo-con…Why attack the people who have volunteered their time to lend a hand? I signed that petition and from what I understand so did almost 50000 other South Dakotans, if you have a problem with Amendment E, go after the text, the merits of it! Typically when folks result to character assasanation, it means that they have no legitimate argument and are digging and clawing for anything they can get.Grow up Tim and the rest of your little fan club. I volunteer my time to causes I believe in too, and if I was at planned perenthood volunteering my time, and someguy started calling me a baby killer or conducting himself in a manner as yourself, it would make me think twice about performing a civic duty. How much time have you volunteered this year Tim? It seems you don’t really have a job?

    Supporters want to hide so your little stones don’t get cast in their direction. I commend Jake for being a volunteer and standing up for what he believes in! If there were more folks like him this world would be a better place.

    I don’t usually respond to comments since the post already expresses my point of view. But since Anonymous at 11:30 a.m. suggests that “if you have a problem with Amendment E, go after the text, the merits of it!”, I suggest he or she might read other parts of this blog.

    For starters, he or she might try here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here or here. Of course, I also use my name when I express opinions rather than hiding as “anonymous.” Seems a lot of these accountability supporters sure want to hide.

    No wonder you dis-like Mr. Hanes…he kicked your ass in Rapid City here’s the link…

  • Personally – I like the idea of a judge having to be accountable. The legal system is a money machine and those within it do not try to fix it – just like cops protect their own, judges and lawyers do the same. This contrived system of justice for the moneyed, indentureship and marketing of the imprisonment of the poor (like bonds.. or a commodity), and self-destructive social agenda pushing BS on the side is something in great need of attack.

    Ammendment-E is is a great frontal attack.

    Now – if the question is “why are the promoters of it on myspace posing with guns and lookin militia?”

    Fair question
    maybe they are playing to the audience. There are a lot more people sick of the drift into ‘cruel-yet-cowardly’ govt than you think, or perhaps are willing to acknowledge. myspace is a tool for creating collective-mind and people who want to do something know this.

    maybe theyre just having fun while they ride the wave and showing a few loose ends

    or, perhaps it is the ever-classic ‘run both sides of the issue and sabotage the side you wish to fail’

    one never knows in lala land

    PS – in any case – defenders of the status quo are becoming outnumbered very quickly,

    If the lawyers are against it.. you know its gotta be good. – because there is still money to be made from it FOR them.

  • Hey prarie-dude!
    I wonder why you dont address the ammendment?

    people often go anonymous on myspace – this makes them feel freer to say what they really think.

    You are using candid posts of people Hanes doesnt know to paint Hanes.

    People think a lot of things which they never tell you in person, but might on myspace.

    I wonder why you dont address the ammendment?

    Just a few mark Twain Quotes
    “We have a criminal jury system which is superior to any other in the world; and its efficiency is only marred by the difficulty of finding 12 everyday men who don’t know anything and can’t read.” And…”In times of change, the Patriot is a scarce man; brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.”
    Thanks for the support and all those whom stand for truth, justice, and integrity…Thanks to all my brothers and sisters in this struggle to deliver our country from the despotic state it is in.

    Why are the Amendment E supporters so willing to trade a system of justice that has accountability for one that has no acountability? I’m still waiting for one of these paranoid idiots to attack the explanation given of the amendment by the Attorney General, or perhaps they’d care to admit that the explanation is right and that their goal is to create anarchy. Hardly what the founding fathers had in mind. I can just imagine BS, Branson, and the rest of the clowns addressing the constitutional convention. And I can hear the laughter down through time. I can’t wait for election day in November. Maybe these vermin will crawl back into their dark little imaginary world.

  • Exactly, Wild Bill! The current system has accountability. We have a system of checks and balances, and an appeals system.

    The “special grand jury” created by Amendment E would be completely immune. Ironically, Amendment E doesn’t remove judicial immunity, it just allows that immunity to change hands.

    For the record, I was present when the picture was taken, and there was a WAR that evening where several of us suffered burns on our hands from the bottle rockets and fire crackers. Funny how you guys like to spin things to harm a good man. We’re all behind you Jake!

    a little something about the New world Order I went to wikipedia and here is what I found
    The North American Union is a proposed international government encompassing the nations of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. It could be considered the North American analogue of the European Union.

    The blueprint for this governing body was laid out in a 2005 report entitled “Building a North American Community” published by the Independent Task Force on North America, a partnership among the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), an American foreign policy think tank, the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, and the Consejo Mexicano de Asuntos Internacionales.

    The Independent Task Force on North America was chaired by Canadian politician John Manley, a former Deputy Prime Minister.

    also see PNAC on wikipedia

  • Wild Bill

    Try this Wikipedia article: You’ll see that the prior poster is far removed from reality, much like the rest of the E circus clowns. Also, regarding who these folks are, Jeffrey Kluger, writing in Time magazine on another subject, has an astute observation that applies here: “There are a lot of ways to study a painting, and one of the best is to get to know the painter. The splash or splatter of color makes a lot more sense when you understand the rage or whimsy or heart behind it. The songwriter, similarly, can lay bare the song, the poet the poem, the builder the building.” Here, the nuts the nutty amendment.

    Why didn’t you post the PNAC comment? what’s the matter don’t want folks to find the truth?

  • Wild Bill

    Here’s the essence of the Wikipedia expose of the paranoid New World Order fantasy: “New world order is an integrative millenarian conspiracy theory that appears in both religious and secular versions. It emerged as a combination, and recombination, of fundamentalist Christian eschatology, with the long-standing disposition to blame conspiracies for shifting social inequities.” How can any rational human being believe this drivel?
