Oh, this guy again.

A Fairbanks man who made headlines years ago for conspiring to murder federal officials will his charges re-sentenced following a court of appeals decision.

Militia leader Schaeffer Cox, a guns rights activist and sovereign citizen ideologist, was convicted in 2012 for his role in an armed conspiracy to murder federal officials.

He was sentenced to serve almost 26 years in prison, but subsequently appealed the ruling on one count, solicitation to murder a federal officer.

The appeal was made on the grounds that, although Cox believed federal assassins were being sent by the government to kill him, those agents did not exist, and thus he couldn’t solicit his security team to murder them.

That appeal was denied by the Supreme Court of the United States this summer, among the more than 150 petitions to the court rejected without explanation.

The 9th Circuit, however, upheld the appeal, overturning the murder solicitation conviction but upholding his other convictions last year.

Cox also threatened to kill at least one federal judge and attempted to obtain illegal weapons so he is not getting out of prison anytime soon regardless of how this new trial goes. 

Currently, Cox is supposed to remain in prison until the year 2033. And in my opinion that is not nearly long enough. 

Cox also once pleaded insanity and then recanted it later on, but if you have heard any of the tapes that were recorded by informants, it is pretty clear that Schaeffer Cox is a deeply disturbed individual who should remain exactly where he is. 

After all, Alaska has enough crazy people running around.

    “The King has ordered the Public Prosecutor to open an internal investigation into the Khashoggi matter based on the info from the joint team in Istanbul,” a Saudi official, not authorized to speak publicly, told Reuters.

    Asked when the public prosecutor could make an announcement about the investigation, the official said: “He was instructed to work quickly.”

    Asking for a friend!

    How many other Liberty Bell Network dingalings were sent to prison with Shaffer Cocks?

    Cox was such a sweetheart in his trial I hope the court doubles his sentence. No sense throwing gas on a militia movement that is already burning. And yes, I followed the trial on Jeanne Devon’s fine blog and she entertained us all with swell commentary and absolutely life like stick figures of the cast of characters.

    He believed they existed. The fact they didn’t doesn’t change anything. He solicited murder.

    Look for a lot of bad appeals court decisions now that Trump and McConnell are stacking those courts and LAME Schumer isn’t doing a damn thing about it, just rolling over and agreeing so that the Democrats can leave DC and go campaign for re-election. Not even putting up a fight. Just because you are outvoted doesn’t mean you just give up. This is a core defect in the Democratic leadership.

    “I was a failure in the eyes of God. It would be years before I understood that my inability to heal bulimia through the mechanisms offered by biblical Christianity was not a function of my own spiritual deficiency but deficiencies in Evangelical religion itself.”
    the problem isn’t just physical and sexual abuse. Emotional and mental treatment in authoritarian religious groups also can be damaging because of
    1) toxic teachings like eternal damnation or original sin
    2) religious practices or mindset, such as punishment, black and white thinking, or sexual guilt, and
    3) neglect that prevents a person from having the information or opportunities to develop normally.

    In fundamentalist Christianity, the individual is considered depraved and in need of salvation. A core message is “You are bad and wrong and deserve to die.” (The wages of sin is death.) This gets taught to millions of children through organizations like Child Evangelism Fellowship-Authoritarian religion is already pathological, and leaving a high-control group can be traumatic.”

      Religion is child abuse, plain and simple. I can certainly see how telling a person from the very beginning of their life that they were born with original sin, basically born flawed, can mess them up for life. People literally have to be “deprogrammed” from this cult behavior in order to live normal lives, and unfortunately many do not and the abuse continues for generations.
