(7/6/04) In addition, it is also our honor to join a number of sites in presenting to their readers Mancus' hobby of the photography of true "assault weapons," Military Aircraft. You will find a link below, immediately following the listing of essays. A new link on this page, the last one down, is a magnificent and incredible exposition on the 2nd Amendment and many other Bill of Rights issues.2/25/05 Recently, Mancus was brought up on charges of resisting a search while on the way to enjoy his hobby of aircraft photography. This flagrant violation of his 4th Amendment rights was intolerable, so Mancus chose to challenge the "Black Robes" on their own "turf." He was found guilty and is now contesting his sentence at the California Supreme Court with an incredibly thorough and powerful Petition for a "Writ of Habeas Corpus." If you are interested in jumping over his essays below, to that Petition, just click on Mancus Petition to State Supreme Court, 2/05 .
A little history:
Peter Mancus is an attorney in Sebastopol, "Kalifornia," who has been outspoken about the loss of the Second Amendment. He has authored many of the most courageous, well-cited, and controversial essays and warnings by any attorney to be found on the internet .
Most Americans do not know that John Adams and Josiah Quincy, (members of the first North Caucus), in the face of almost certain censure by their community, defended the British Army members who had fired upon the Bostonians at the "Massacre." Bostonians, including one who later lost his life to the musket fire that day, admitted that they had tormented the British far above anything they had ever seen, and the British were actually defending themselves. This mortally wounded tormenter refused to blame the Brits for mortally wounding him, Attucks or any others, much to the dismay of many Bostonians whose only goal was further fulmination of the British problem. So, Quincy and Adams were quick to defend the Brits, and gain their general acquittal of any felonious behavior that day upon the Commons.
This was the mettle of the lawyers of that time. It was these same lawyers and Harvard graduates, and many others, who contributed to the Federalist papers, essays in the Boston Gazette, Philadelphia papers, and New York papers who, in turn, crafted the Constitution. These lawyers, scholars and businessmen were dedicated to LIBERTY and the proper application of law.
These were the men who joined myriad other Revolutionary War soldiers in weeping at the surrender of the Brits at Yorktown. A different type of people than we, dear reader. Compassionate, yet intractably Patriotic.
We of the present North Caucus are humbled to the quick by the assembly of genius that came together in some kind of providential synchronicity to create this Republic. Historians like Winston Churchill, de Tocqueville, and Montesquieu were stunned by the mass of genius that congealed in Philadelphia to create a Republic the likes of which had never before adorned this planet.
We lay folk find ourselves viewing the formation of our Republic through a glass darkly, barely understanding the thoughts that went into the Constitutional Convention and our Founding Documents. We may know what they wanted, but we do NOT know what they would think of that with which we are now encumbered.
Enter Peter Mancus. Idealist. Constitutionalist. Avid reader of the Jefferson works. Eloqutionist. He has the eloquence of a combination of Adams, Hancock, and even James Otis (James Otis was also refered to as "The American Hampden" by his contemporaries. James Otis cracked under heat, and Mancus thrives on heat).
We have the UNIQUE opportunity to look at our present legal tangle through the eyes of one who thinks like they. The documents by Mancus we are so privileged to have on our site, and and those RKBA and others have on their sites, are a view of the reaction that would be elicited by our laws in the minds of those idealists who created the Republic we seem to have wasted.
These documents would be a TREASURE to anyone home-schooling their children, or any OTHER idealists in schools who are thirsting for an understanding of the depth of legal depravity to which we have sunk. Any seeking a clear tacit explanation of what is WRONG with those laws, would hunker like children at the feet of Aristotle if they could find such a mind. Here we have a mind that would have been very comfortable in the "Long Room," the "Salutation," or the "Green Dragon," exchanging clear thought with minds like the Adamses, Revere, Hancock, Otis, and many others.
So, dear reader, hunker with us, and read. If you do not, you would be one who would walk away from expositions by savants like Von Neumann, Ampere, Euler, Gauss, or La Place. You would turn your nose up at Hillel, or Gamaliel. This man, Mancus, is a thinker on that level: "The Beauty of thy Law."
The icons below connect to essays Dr. Mancus has given the NCA permission and encouragement to publish, and to his famous essays already mounted on other sites. Anyone who would like to not only learn the exact law being violated by our governments and sample the oratory that was famous in the days of the Founding Fathers will truly enjoy this excursion. It is our honor to have learned so much from this man and to have the wherewithal to share some of his oratory.C. Joyce II

YOU THINK "FREEDOM" IS "FREE"
ALL COPS AND JUDGES
READ THIS, LEARN, AND WEEP FOR YOUR NATION!
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE LIBERTY
FOR THOSE WHO SHOULD!

CLICK ON MANCUS AND HENRY, BELOW:
It is a fair assessment to say that whenever Mancus is involved in his hobby of aerial photography, he is "on Cloud Nine." That might be a good reason for his site to be so named. He is, in my opinion, on "Cloud Nine" whenever he is assailing the tyranny that would destroy our Bill of Rights and remove from us our firearms.
