Montana Man Knows How to Be Free

Amazing video of man who knows who he is and puts a judge in her place.
Must see! Must be repeated over and over all over the country!


Does God make men like this anymore? I think so, I think most men have not been trained in how to be a man. We all need to learn to be kings in our castles; not polite, bowing servants to those who would rule over us when they are our servants!

I think Dr. Paul is fighting for the ability of all of us to live like this if we choose to.

My favorite books

1. The Bible (Authorized version, commonly called the King James Bible or KJB,KJV). Of course, it's a big book, so you have to read regularly for it to begin to fit together - the price of truth.

2. Two Treatises on Government, by John Locke

While there are many books on this issue, it is the principles that are eternal and universal that we need to learn.

Condensing some of my favorite biblical principles:

1. God is the Ultimate Sovereign.
Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
God is the "most High." He is the ultimate Sovereign.

2. God gave dominion over all the earth to man. This is our source for the claim of sovereignty.
Genesis 1:26-28 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


Psalm 115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

3. God is no respecter of persons. We are all equal in His sight and should be treated that way in our sight.
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
That's where Jefferson and others got the principle of equality as expressed in the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths..."
II Chronicles 19:7 Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.
Proverbs 28:21 To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

4. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Freedom and Liberty to all.
Luke 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
A good resource on the true meaning of Liberty:

5. Fear God and stay humble.
Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
James 4:6 ...God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

6. Walk at liberty. Exercise your rights and stand up for them.
Psalm 119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
Luke 13:31-33 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.
32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.
33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.
Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
Nehemiah 6:11 And I said, Should such a man as I flee?
Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

7. Offend no one. (meaning their rights, not their feelings)
I Corinthians 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:

8. Accountability.
Proverbs 22:20-21 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,
21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
Romans 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

That's the ultimate principle to understand if you want true Liberty that lasts forever.

There's tons more. These are just the quick thoughts and principles that come to mind without doing any extra study or research.

Hope it helps.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17

What if I'm not Christian?

Can I use those verses because they are (or claim to be)?

I'm not familiar with Two Treatises, will look it up.

Dan....no wait, dan. :)

...let it not be said that we did nothing.
-Ron Paul

You have freedom of religion...

... and of conscience.

If you believe certain principles in the Bible are sound, use them, stand on them; if not, don't. You don't have to subscribe to any particular religion.

My favorite verse in the Bible is I Thessalonians 5:23, "Prove all things..."

I strive to live by that verse in all my dealings with my fellow man.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17


betcha most of them supported the bombing , occupation and systematic destruction of a number of poor countries around the world and now think this shit doesn't come back around. Wanna bet?
You lost your freedom the minute you took or supported the taking of someone else's freedom.

Why would you presume that?

Why would you presume that? At one point he even tells the judge he is peaceful. It's hard for me to think a man so principled would support the murder of innocents.


I think Tudo was referring to the Judge and the officers, not the free living man and his family/friends.

Or at least I really hope that's what he was trying to say, cause I don't see this free man supporting wars when he doesn't even declare himself part of the corporate us.

What about the Sheriff?

We all know the importance of having a constitutional sheriff. Are there any Montanans that can give us information as to the stance of the sheriff of that county and whether he is an Oathkeeper or a member of Richard Mack's constitutional sheriffs organization?

Calls to the Sheriff's office in support of the natural rights of man to forage for food without hoarding or wasting could be helpful.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17

Sheriff Brian Gootkin

is a good one for sure. He's been told time and again that we appreciate his support in such things.


Of what county is he the sheriff?

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17


which contains Three Forks, Logan, Bozeman, Belgrade, Manhattan... I think that's it but there may be a bit more such as Gallatin Gateway and whatnot.


Wouldn't he have jurisdiction to protect the man from unlawful incarceration and unconstitutional charges and arrest? If, as you say, he is a constitutional sheriff, I would think that he could be urged to take a hand in this like Sheriff Finch in Florida.

I can't remember who the arresting officer was, whether it was a deputy, police officer or fish and game warden; but I believe a Sheriff should be able to stop any unconstitutional activity in his county.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17


I think the Judge handled it well considering he just stomped the system.

So I think this is the guy...

It's 29 min. Why did he have to write the info on the box. I mean, I'm up for listening, but cardboard?

Thanks, mikecz,

I enjoyed the video.

Not many men like this, anymore - too bad.

While I do not endorse everything he says, I like the WAY he says it. He speaks with authority. That does not mean he is right on everything:
He's definitely wrong about who God is. God is not you and I, or the universe -that would be idolatry.
He's also wrong regarding the soldiers gambling for Jesus' name. The Bible is clear, they gambled for his garment.
He's also wrong on the definition of insane. The prefix in- has two meanings, "in" and "not". In this case, it means "not" thus, insanity means "not sane".
I have noticed that many patriots fall for the word games of not only the de facto government lawyers but also the word games of patriots who ignorantly fall for the same lust for power over people through words.
We must learn to be honest in our dealings with words lest we entrap ourselves in a bondage of our own making.

But over all, I love the way this man stands up for what he believes in, against a system that we all know is becoming more and more corrupt and more tyrannical by the day.

God help us, and may He have mercy on some of our ignorances as we strive to wake up to not only freedom, but liberty, truth and righteousness.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.

How is believing God is the universe idolatry?

Idolatry (merriam-webster) -
1: the worship of a physical object as a god

2: immoderate attachment or devotion to something

The universe is far more than just a physical object.

Someone saying they believe in God or Jesus can seem a lot more like idolatry to me when you consider that so many people worship the word God or Jesus.

Or maybe for instance, the immoderate attachment to the bible? Wouldn't that be idolatry according to this definition?

I'll try to keep this short - : )

The answer to your first question is simple for me. The Bible defines what idolatry is, so I just believe what it says idolatry is. Simple. Clean.

God judged His people for violating his command to not have any other gods before Him (first commandment) as evidenced here:

Jeremiah 8:1-2 At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves:
2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.

Worshipping the sun, moon and stars (host of heaven) was a pagan practice, derived from the perversion of the gospel and prophetic teaching of the constellations which God designed and put in place to show man in dot-to-dot pictures the truths of the Bible before there was a Bible.

Many of the constellations illustrate various characteristics and prophetic actions of God, especially as He is manifested in the flesh as Jesus Christ. As people strayed away from the truth of the stars, as the tendency of man is, perversions of the original teachings began to spread. Instead of attributing the various characteristics of God, they attributed the characteristics to other gods. These perverted teachings gave rise to the idea of polytheism.

Just do a search of the phrase "host of heaven" in King James Bible (KJV) software. (That exact phrase is found 19 times.)

You make a good point, JBS, that some people worship the word "God" or "Jesus". I have seen this and I'm sure God hates it. God wants us to love and worship Him, not some word (God, Jesus) that may not be defined accurately.
I am not one of those. I know Him. He means the world to me. I trust Him implicitly. I can honestly say, like Job of old, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him." Someone who does not know Him can not understand that until they get to know Him.

One thing I know, God hates fakiness. He loves honesty, even if applied toward error. That's why He went to such lengths to get the attention of Saul of Tarsus (Acts 9), a man who had been killing Christians and hated the name of Jesus. Saul changed his beliefs and became the great apostle Paul, whom God spoke to and used to pen much of the New Testament.

You are also correct in pointing out that some people have an immoderate attachment to the Bible. I assume you mean what I have noticed - an attachment to the leather, look, feel, paper and ink, etc. I agree with you that that would be idolatry, and God agrees as well.

Some people are attached to prayer, but their prayers are rejected by God because He knows they "draw near with their mouth, but their heart is far from me."

Some people are attached to a building or "temple" - same thing.

I'm glad you think critically - it shows you are not fooled by these things.

I don't know what you believe, but I certainly support you in your freedom to believe what you want. I choose to believe the Bible.
I've been reading it since before I went to school and before that, had it read to me. I was raised in a family with a rule, "No Bible - no breaskfast". So I got so much of it in me that it all makes sense and it has the answers to everything I have ever wondered about. And the answers are not vague, but provable.

God does not force anyone to believe in Him, but in the end, after having given them ample opportunity, He will judge all men by His Word, by whether or not they believed His Word.

John 12:47-48 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Think about it, that's the way we are. We tend to judge people by whether they believe us or not - and we're not even perfect!

Thanks for your questions! I hope I have satisfied you somewhat. I don't want to take too much time or space as that is not the purpose of this forum, but I at least wanted to give you a brief answer. Feel free to contact me if you would like a more in depth response, or if you have other questions.

Definitely the same guy

There was a story about him talking in front of City Hall in a local paper there:
I don't see a way to link to the story directly but it's the "photo of the week" currently.

Okay, Montana is a far cry from Manhattan. :)


Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

Manhattan is

just a few miles east of where this happened, in Three Forks.

Manhattan, Montana is...

Manhattan, Montana is in Montana.

See how New York and its reputation colors your thinking?

This happens in many other ways to people and is how the elites control and manipulate our minds.

We must question everything and never make assumptions if we intend to be free.

Don't feel bad, I am constantly on the look for how I might be doing the same type of mistakes.

I've seen many of your comments. I respect your contributions, 1controversialchick! You're entitled by your humanity to a mistake now and then. :)

I'll have to tell my husband about my mistake--He's gonna laugh at me. I was just telling him about this guy and the Montana/Manhattan "mix-up".

How can

How can we support this man?

Can anyone set up a legal defense fund? I want to donate to his defense.

What are the court contacts?

Any lawyers willing to step up?
