Trial by Ambush

State of North Carolina v. Amanda Lea Rose
Wilkesboro, N.C. | Wilkes County Superior Court
Part One • Part Two

The case of NCAR citizen Mandie Rose began on October 20, 2010 when she was cited at a traffic stop for not wearing a seatbelt. It is our belief, based on irrefutable historical evidence, that the state of North Carolina now in operation does so unlawfully. Therefore, we take every opportunity to respond in court, even with seemingly trivial matters such as these, with a challenge of jurisdiction. As of our last update, Lindsay R. Davis, Jr., Superior Court Judge gave the prosecution 14 days to produce more evidence to support the jurisdictional claim, and further requested that the ADA provide said evidence/response to Ms. Rose to allow her ample time to review and formulate a response. 

As controller of the court's schedule, it was the ADA's intention to reconvene on Monday September 19. However, when Ms. Rose followed-up with the ADA she was advised that she did not need to appear in court on Monday. She followed-up again on Tuesday with no response. On Wednesday she received a response at 4:21 PM from ADA Fred Bauer, advising that she needed to be in court first thing on Thursday morning, and attached a proposed order.

The proposed order was nothing more than an order denying the defendant's, Ms. Rose's, motion to dismiss. Frankly he failed to address the only issue before the court: whether or not the state has any lawful authority to "try" Ms. Rose, or to even bring charges in the first place. Ms. Rose did not file a "motion" and therefore cannot "move" the court to do anything when it doesn't have in personam jurisdiction to begin with. The challenge of the jurisdiction of the state and its courts which was filed, which Superior Court Judge Lindsay Davis ordered the state to answer, has not been answered. 

Although the ADA appeared to have 'hit send' as an after-thought before leaving for the day on Wednesday, not providing very much time or notice with which to formulate a response, Ms. Rose worked closely with the NCAR Legal Team to put together a written response to this 'proposed order'. She showed up promptly to court this morning with the written response in-hand, delivering one to the ADA, another to the judge. 


It was the impression by those in court today that the ADA seemed as though he wasn't expecting such a response, and appeared to be caught off guard. We have seen how the de facto state perpetually operates off of ignorance and fear, but these tactics are nothing more than moves in an elaborate game of chess, and this apparent 'trial by ambush' didn't work this time around. The judge reviewed the proposed order and Ms. Rose's response, and moved the next court date to the upcoming Superior Court session, November 7, 2011 at 10:00 AM.

We Need Your Help

We are grateful for the support that we have received so far, and your donations have been instrumental in furthering our efforts to bring back lawful state sovereignty. We would like to ask for your help once again. Mandie Rose and The NCAR Legal Team need the transcripts from the 9/13/11 court session as soon as possible. If you would like to make a financial contribution toward this expense (it will cost roughly $400.00 for the transcript), any amount you wish to donate would be greatly appreciated. Click here to donate to our legal fund.

It may not seem like it, but November is right around the corner. Please make plans now to come support the NCAR in Wilkes County Superior Court on November 7, 2011 at 10:00 AM! Feel free to print this PDF flyer, and pass them out. We are setting a small goal of having 15-20 supporters join us. Will you be one?
