SARASOTA – Whether or not Matt Shea deserves the recent lynching after the assimilation of "terrorist" and "patriot" begs the question. The rumbling you hear in the background may be our founding fathers turning over in their graves, after sacrificing their blood, treasure and sacred honor, realizing the descendants now in the driver's seat put the "patriot" and "terrorist" in the same category.
A "High Level" Perspective
Don't err. The term "high level" does not mean an arrogant, condescending, ignorant perspective forcing a treacherously censored set of fact, law and reason, to arrive at a cherry picked set of facts to justify sending the rope over the branch to lynch this guy before he open's his damn mouth and tries to exercise any due process.
"High Level" from the 60 years experience of this seasoned IT engineer / journalist, is defined as a general, inclusive, perspective, where our sacred, blood bought Constitutional principles Trumps, [pun intended] the infinite set of he said /she said never ending controvertible facts. Ancient Jewish Rabbis teach that to defame and ruin a man's reputation goes lower than murder.
Rampart Investigation: Garbage In, Garbage Out.
While Rampart toots it's horn as the next best thing to God's omniscient investigation team, a few basic logical engineering principles show Rampart threw itself under it's own bus full of unreliable sources, as documented in the so-called Matt Shea investigation. The said profoundly erroneous logical errors in the "Investigation" deserve this critical pushback based on the same critical thinking this author's treasure goes back to the Seattle University Boolean logic gained in Fr. Robert Spitzer's classes in the mid ninety's.
The Fatal flaws in the conclusion [of the Matt Shea Investigation] result from fatal[ly] [deficient] processes relying on fatally corrupt sources. While this author, nor most people, can scrutinize [correctness] of the Matt Shea subject matter, we can likely agree that if we drink polluted water, we risk the likelihood of illness. Eg: the DNC Christopher Greene dossier concocted to overthrow our duly elected President Donald J. Trump, now pending in the current Coup / Impeachment modus operandi. Simply put, the following [toxic, unreliable] sources rely on [fabricated] hearsay or worse:
The Southern Poverty Law Center – propounded money laundering in off shore accounts, classifying conservative, well-established faith-based institutions as "hate groups", even attempting to instigate heavy handed investigations and sanctions. A few of the investigations aimed at the SPCL follows:

Yet it is dangerously provocative. The SPLC uses its list of designated hate groups in much the same way: to manipulate the lives of others, smear reputations, control personal relationships, and reap the spoils. The dynamic is the same, whether played on the adolescent scene or in the political arena. Both lists serve mostly as power-mongering tools. By Stella Morabito MAY 17, 2017
Oregon Public Broadcasting / Oregon Live: This author, having direct sources in the Malheur Refuge Standoff, BLM land grab, Uranium One and Lavoy Finicum ambush / murder relies on fact, [constitutional law] and reason, to support the factual nature of these weighty [constitutional] matters. Simply put, OPB relied on information gleaned from "fruit of the poisonous tree"; the same perps engaged in the BLM land grab modus operandi, unverified by fact and law.
Proposed Discontinuation Deserves a Screeching Halt to the Matt Shea Lynching
[Ongoing] revelations of fact, [constitutional] law and reason, at the very least, deserve the careful, deliberate application of Constitutional due process…after scrutinizing with reliable facts, constitutional law, reason, not limited to the context of Uranium One, Malheur Refuge, Ranchers Bundy, Hamonds and Finicums. The Matt Shea subject matter propound a vastly inferior premise in juxtaposition to the United States Constitution and Due process. Simply put, this lynching in the public theater of an elected official smells like the same 1935 Germany our forefathers gave their lives and treasure to defeat. A change of course after a careful self-inventory is vital to our children's legacy.
 Fr. Robert Spitzer later distinguished himself as the President of Gonzaga University. This author's blessing beyond measure includes the privilege to study under Spitzer.
