Guilty: Sioux County Attorney Kunstle Recommends $650 Fine, Magistrate Charges $65: Why Dan Pluim There?

The verdict came in today in my 5th degree criminal mischief case in the Sioux County, Iowa District Court.  (Sioux County is heavily populated by Dutch Reformed Christians, who’ve let their once strong faith seriously backslide.)  I was found guilty.  I offered no defense of my actions as, per the

prior request of the Sioux County Attorney Tom Kunstle, the Cherokee County, IA Magistrate Lisa Mazurek (pictured above) previously denied my ability to present the very defense of my actions which I intended to argue.   As a result I also  waived my right for a Jury Trial because there was no way I would be acquitted by the narrow law being applied and the court-ordered limitations on my defense.  What I didn’t want was the enemies of God crowing, “He was found guilty by a Jury of his peers in the most conservative county in Iowa.”

After conviction, Kunstle  then recommended to the court that I pay the highest fine possible amount under the law: $650 plus court costs because my act was “so brazen”.  But Magistrate Mazurek assessed me the lowest amount of $65 plus court costs and surcharge, totaling $147.75.

Sioux County Magistrate Dan Pluim (pictured above), who had previously recused himself from the case without any real cause still showed up in the back row to watch the proceedings.

Meanwhile, see my full Press Release here.

More troubling, last week I presented a Motion to the Court which she never responded to.  All other Motions and Requests were acted on very promptly.  But this Motion, entered prior to waiving my Jury Trial, was to amend the  Jury instructions which County Attorney Kunstle had proposed for her approval.  I asked to  amend it to include instructions as to where the authority comes from for the Magistrate (or any Judge) to require the Jury to only rule on the facts and that they must use only the law the Magistrate provides them to determine if the facts conform to this law, or not.  To further understand my request see this copy of the Exhibit that was attached to my request of the Court.

I filed several other motions after that.  Before I waived my Jury Trial Magistrate Mazurek ruled on the later Motions but never responded to my Motion to amend the Jury instructions.  Silence!  Why?  Could it be that there is no authority in law and that for  400 years the principle, under Common-law (which also brought us ‘due process, ‘right to face our accusers, ‘ ‘right to examine evidence’,  ‘open court rooms’ (no more Star Chambers), et al),  has been well established until the last few generations, that  the Jury always retained the power to ignore or nullify the Judge’s orders?

Note: Sitting for voir dire once years ago I was asked by the attorney for one party that ‘If I was selected to be on the Jury panel would I be willing to swear an oath that only the Judge would be allowed to rule on the law and limit my vote to the facts applied to the law the Judge provided us.’  I asked the attorney who would be administering such an oath. He replied that it would be senior district #3A Judge  Frank B. Nelson.  I then turned to the Judge on the bench and said, “Then he’d be violating His oath of office to ensure the defendant is to be tried by a jury of his peers with all due process protections under the Iowa Constitution (Article 1, Section 9) including the Jury’s authority to rule on both the law and the facts.” I advised those in the courtroom to seek out the Jury Trial of William Penn back in England (whom Pennsylvania is named after) and read the history of how the Jury in his case was willing to go to prison before yielding up their power to void the King’s law against preaching.  (The King had sent the jury to jail until they came back and honored his unjust law and render  a guilty verdict.   Judge Nelson never disputed it, never looked up and simply grunted, “Dorr, you can go.”

One more note: I once asked Federal Judge O’Brien in US District Court in Sioux City on a point of law.  The question was, ‘what could he do to punish jurors if they decided during jury deliberations to ignore his orders forbidding them from ruling on the law? And instead voted to nullify it in the particular case before them.’  Red faced he replied, “Nothing”.  I replied, “Funny you didn’t tell those jurors that before you sent them off to deliberate.”

Sanctions on the career await any attorney who dare advise members of a Jury that they can rule to nullify the law as well as on the facts.

So why is this all important?
If I had been allowed by Magistrate Mazurek to argue the nature and cause of my case by dragging in a library board member and have them read from these filthy children’s books and then advise them that they can rule on the law as well as the facts, the possibility of my being acquitted by an Orange City , Iowa Jury would have been greatly enhanced.   Per the request of the Sioux County Attorney Tom Kunstle the game was “rigged” to deny me an acquittal before I ever walked into that courtroom.

Meanwhile,  prior to my sentencing I then closed with a portion of the national anthem of the Netherlands titled Wilhelmus, below, regarding William of Nassau-Orange – of whom Orange City, IA was named in honor of.   (Many in the media asked about this statement after the case was over).

Statement to Magistrate Lisa Mazurek prior to sentencing.

I would like my closing statement to be the recitation of the final two stanzas of Wilhelmus, the national anthem of the Netherlands. It was written in the 16th Century as a gift to William of Nassau of the House of Orange aka William the Silent. And it was penned as if it was in first person, telling his story.  William of Nassau was the leader of the Dutch independence movement breaking from the rule of the King of Spain.

One hundred years later it was conceived essentially as the anthem of the House of Orange-Nassau and its supporters.

Finally, according to Wikipedia (which is not always reliable) the melody of this song is used, with rewritten English lyrics, as the alma mater of Northwestern College here in Orange City.  This city is named for the House of Orange.  And here in Sioux County, Nassau Township lies just south of Hwy 10 here in Orange City.

Your honor:  Wilhelmus

“…Pray God that He may ease you. His Gospel be your cure. Walk in the steps of Jesus. This life will not endure.  Unto the Lord His power I do confession make, That ne’er at any hour Ill of the King I spake.  But unto God, the greatest of majesties I owe obedience, first and last, For Justice wills it so.”

I closed stating, Your honor I burned those books because I, too, owe obedience  unto the living God that I serve and to provide justice to the children of Orange City.  Like William of Orange, it is His standard of justice I submitted to.  And now I place myself in your hands madam.

Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged…..Judges!

See the NW Iowa Judicial Hall of Shame Below!

The late District Associate Judge Cameron Arnold (raised a Presbyterian) of Spirit Lake, IA, once reported to Rescue the Perishing’s Paul Dorr that he served as President of the Iowa Judges Association for one term in the late 1980s. He remained a member of the Association for a short time after finishing his term and then dissociated himself with it. When asked why he separated from them Judge Arnold replied, “There is something ominous, something dark about judges.  They truly do believe they are God on earth.  The only hope is for the Church to be humbled and stirred up to hold the judiciary accountable or this branch of government will destroy Christian civilization. It will never reform from within.”  He encouraged me to press on against such immoral people seeking the bench.

He also observed that married judges, who never divorced make legal divorce more difficult for couples as they push them to reconcile; and that the number of younger divorced lawyers seeking the bench (back then) will throw open wide the destruction of marriage, said Judge Arnold.

My then-pastor Rev. Phil Schmidt, Westminster Reformed Church, Alton, Iowa and I spent one afternoon in his Dickinson County, IA court chambers discussing theology, law, God’s Law, etc.  Judge Arnold was a wise man with a broad knowledge base and a keen intellect.  He loved to balance mercy with justice.

For years after his death my wife and I enjoyed spending time with his widow Karen, (now deceased) discussing the things of the Christian faith.  She was honored to allow us to name our judicial reform efforts The Cameron Arnold Judicial Reform Initiative, (CAJRI) even defending her decision when lawyers called to ‘warn her’ about me.  She told me that she told them “‘Cam’ would support Mr. Dorr’s work with this.”

Below is a list of some of District #3 Judges that CAJRI has tried to publicly hold up to God’s Law with efforts that I believe Judge Arnold would have appreciated.

NOTE: But worse than the Judges, will be the effeminate Pastors who no longer preach God’s Law to a people who so desperately need to hear it (in its full exposition) and apply it by grace to their lives and communities.  These silent shepherds then falsely convince themselves that they have nothing to say in the public square while such judges listed below, run amuck. (Note: If the reader wants to start a life changing study of the Law of God on their own and they have time to listen at the Gym, behind the windshield, or for private studies at home,  start here.)

Meanwhile, Cherokee, Iowa County Magistrate Lisa Mazurek will need to appeal to the current panel comprising the District #3A Nominating Commission  (found here) if she wishes to again apply, the next time a higher court vacancy opens up in NW Iowa.


Chuck Barlow, Spirit Lake – When confronted with his adultery against the ‘wife of his youth’ who worked to put him through law school, he never denied it and babbled over the phone as to how he thought he was a good judge, worthy of retention vote. Reports of his second wife were not honorable.

Tom Hamilton, Spirit Lake – details of his divorce were not known, but he was caught lying to his fellow commission members to get them to table their nominating committee meeting and open the application process back up. A survey of all the county clerks of court in District #3A proved he lied to his committee. Why did he do this?  Too many God-fearing lawyers had applied. According to Judge Arnold at the time, Hamilton sent Barlow down to Spencer to recruit Pat Carr to apply.

Patrick Carr, Spencer – recipient of Hamilton’s chicanery and could never provide me a plausible answer as to why he wasn’t interested in applying for the nomination the first go-around, but a few weeks after Hamilton’s lie, he suddenly wanted to apply.  A lawyer from Lyon County contacted me later with a heart-wrenching account of Patrick Carr awarding primary custody of a young girl to a man’s ex-wife, who admitted in court that she placed her young daughter down to sleep in the closet of the same bedroom where she was having sexual relations with one of her several paramours.  With no evidence this ex-wife promised Carr that she’d ‘get better.’

Jim Scott, Rock Valley – After his nomination he was asked to give an account of the divorce of his first marriage.  He refused.  He was later asked to confirm or deny three independent reports (which I assured him had not been passed on to anyone by me) from individual Rock Valley citizens (none aware of the others), that he previously had a significant drug problem.  He refused to deny it and filed a ‘security risk’ report on me with his County Sheriff.  His Sheriff called laughing and said, “Well I haven’t heard this before, but his over-reaction tells me to keep on eye on him.”

Carl Peterson, Rock Rapids – He was asked in writing to account for two varying sordid stories of his committing adultery on his wife. The party mentioned as his paramour was, according to court records, his second wife.   According to a local attorney she had previously been his family baby-sitter.  He never confirmed nor denied the allegations and said he refused to respond to the inquiries.

Nancy Whittenburg, Spencer – Once divorced, provable misandrist, previous ¼ owner of Whittenburg Budweiser dealership while presiding over OWI cases (family later sold company) and had previously served as Chairperson of the Planned Parenthood Advisory Council of Spencer.  PP has promoted teen sexual sin and the killing of pre-born babies for a couple of generations.   Dorr was the recipient of several  accounts of Whittenburg’s deviant personal moral conduct (prior to her appointment to the bench)  but all parties were frightened to go on the record as she was soon to be sworn in as a judge.

Jeff Neary, Merrill – The Judge who opened the door to homosexual marriages in Iowa by first illegitimately recognizing Iowa jurisdiction over a Vermont homosexual civil union.  CAJRI lit-dropped several thousand fliers on church parking lots in District #3B prior to his retention vote.

Dan Vakulskas – This was the District Associate judge that Sioux County Attorney Kunstle and Magistrate Judge Dan Pluim first mentioned to take my case after Pluim recused himself.  I objected to Vakulskas in Court. He wasn’t selected. Judge Vakulskas left his family’s Sioux City law firm before being appointed to the bench in January 2019. His mother stepped down as Chair of the Woodbury County Republican Party, some years ago, after I exposed that this same family law practice was the legal defense team for the entire porn industry in Sioux City. Now he sits in Judgment in Sioux and Plymouth Counties.

Meanwhile, three God-fearing and very experienced lawyers, each with one marriage and several children applied several times over the last 25 years and not one of them once received a nomination to the bench by the Nominating Commissions of Iowa District #3.  Several years ago one was privately told by a lawyer-member of the #3A Nominating Commission, that he’d never be nominated because his religious views on marriage would slow down the divorce court.  Two of the three no longer practice law in NW Iowa. Divorce and family court are big money for many Iowa lawyers, not an unforeseen possibility by some nearly 50 years ago.

“The business of divorce has become so profitable to a large number of communities which specialize in catering to migrants (sic. into a state/region) seeking divorce that the states in which such places are situated will make divorce laws easy enough to attract trade.”

What Too Many Reformed & Evangelical Girls Have Never Been Taught!

Motherhood is, at best, a minor annoyance to most married Christian women today, as they drop their child(ren) off at the daycare.  (Few advised them of the massive student debt they’d incurr while often earning a college degree of limited value.) Their career too often dominates their life. Their child(ren) are growing further apart from them and worse, from God.  Many such mothers then are reduced to trying to ‘buy’ their child’s love.

Young mothers – consider below the eternal perspective and the concentrated power to form lives for Christ that you possess.  This was written  160 years ago and still remains as powerful today!
“Let us take as an illustration, the case of the mother of a family. The cares of a family are numerous and heavy; and there are many instances, in which it is impossible for a mother, and head of a house, to be engaged in much external ministry for God. But if she be willing to serve Him, she need not be disheartened.

Is not home a little world in itself, and is not she, either for good or evil, the grand influence of home, much, most of it taking its tone from her? Would that Christian mothers recognized more, the great opportunities and responsibilities of home ministry; that they saw how the very fact of their influence being concentrated, gave it force! The charge of gunpowder, which occupies but a little space, sends the shot to a long-distance; what mother can tell, how far her concentrated influence will send her children, in the career of holiness, and usefulness among their fellows.

There is ministry in a Mother’s look. It has re-appeared in after life, amid the gleaming eyes which burn with unhallowed fires; and succoured the tempted one by the memory of its solemn, soft, and holy gaze.

There is ministry in a mother’s voice. It has re-echoed, after many years in the chambers of the memory, and warned in deep mysterious tones, as though it now came from another world, and cheered, and soothed, with even more than the power it possessed in earlier days, as though it were privileged to speak with the soft melody of heaven.

Yes! There is ministry even in a mother’s touch; and long after the hand from which it came, is cold in the motionless solitude of the tomb, it’s impress remains in living power. A mysterious hand from the invisible world traced the sentence of Belshazzar’s ruin; this hand, mysterious and invisible also, leaves imprinted on the heart, words at once of warning and of love – words of most powerful warning, because words of love.

… Yes! Christian mothers, God requires testimony and ministry from you, in your own circles. If you be limited to them, by Him, He will accept your home ministry, and he will not leave you without a reward. You shall act upon the world, from the recesses of your own sanctified home; the ministry which you carried on for God upon the child at your knee, shall have a place, not in the annals of the world alone; your sons will perhaps be the fathers of God-fearing, and God praising families; they will perhaps minister in the public service of the sanctuary; they will salt the society in which they move. It may be, that your daughters, as mothers, will reproduce your influence, the circle widening with every generation; and thus (provided God has limited your circle) show you, if you minister in it for Him, throw forth circles ever-widening more and more, so that you, being dead, shall speak, and live, and move in influence, long after you have departed in the flesh.”

Smokin’ Hot Legal Response To Charges Against Paul Dorr For Burning Library Books

I filed  my legal response in Sioux County Magistrate Court tonight to the criminal mischief charges  filed against me by Sioux County, Iowa Attorney Thomas Knustle on behalf of the City of Orange City.  We’ve asked Cherokee County, Iowa Magistrate Judge Lisa Mazurek to sign an order to dismiss the charges.  As you read the Memorandum you will find the books I burned were later paid for.  I did not pay for them nor did I specifically ask or  authorize anyone to pay for them. But the books were paid for, none-the-less.  And they still charged me with a crime.   But that’s just ‘half of it’.

Here’s a quote from my closing statement in the Memorandum,
” Dorr was charged with criminal mischief in the fifth degree because of his protest and because he published the protest. He filmed himself burning the books, and then posted the video to the internet and Facebook to publish his message, to encourage public discourse in the marketplace of ideas. . In his effort to raise awareness on his side of an issue, the Library ignored its procedural policies and the police responded to the public outcry for prosecution by criminally charging Mr. Dorr. Likewise, Orange City ignored Iowa Code § 714.5, which allows for “arrangements [to] be made to make a monetary settlement.”

Instead, Mr. Dorr was treated unlike other library patrons who had not returned books, and but for his public protest, Mr. Dorr literally had “the book thrown at him” to teach him a lesson. But, what lesson? That the Library can avoid its procedural policy in lieu of protected First Amendment rights? That people can be treated unequally for non-returned books?

As noted before, if Mr. Dorr had protested in silence and destroyed the books yet the, books had been paid for, would he have been prosecuted? He still would be exercising his First Amendment rights. Regardless, the answer would be “no.” The only interceding fact in this case was his published protest. The Library ignored its policies and the police charge was selectively based upon nothing more than an act of protected First Amendment activities.”

 When you get done reading my filings it will be clear they’re trying to throw the book at me for standing up against those Orange City library officials  who desire to destroy the souls of children.

Read the documents linked below that I filed with the District Court today.

(CAUTION: Only mature adults should read Exhibit 6 on my Affidavit in Support with Exhibits attachment. It includes vile blasphemies against our Lord and sexually depraved remarks sent to me through the comment section on this page, that the court needed to consider.)

Living Wills: Getting One Step Ahead Of The Humanist Medical System!

Do you want to insure that the medical community expressly knows that you and your loved ones do not waive their liability in making medical-care decisions regarding your health and life, when you are unable to?  Do you want to make the positive determinations as to what care is required, or not, in your final hours?  Do you want to specifically grant medical powers of attorney to those of your choosing?    If so, see these templates for christian Medical Living Wills drawn up for residents of Iowa  and Texas.

Do not see these as complete or lawful in your case.  Rather, take them to your own attorney and have him review and update them as required especially if you are a resident of another state.  That is why we are providing these in editable MS Word format.

Once completed, sign multiple copies and forward them (by registered mail) to the hospitals and doctors in your area that you normally receive medical care from and carry copies in the glove box of your vehicles. Also, make scanned digital copies available to loved ones who can promptly email it to the administrator and risk officer of any hospital or trauma center that you may be admitted to, that hadn’t previously received it.

The Abby Johnson File

Our printable two page flier is here.

Rochelle Sapp conviction and sentencing.

Abby Johnson 2011: “Some of you may think the abortionists hold more  guilt than the mother. I disagree. I do not believe women are “victims” to abortion. I have had two abortions. I was not a victim. I was a perpetrator.”

Here are screen shots if she takes down the above link.

Now she changes her mind on her Meme below.  Murder has now been reduced to a “service” that needs no accountability by the state.  Does she believe the father and all the friends and family who aid/abetted the death of this child should get a free pass, too?

While punishment for capital crimes has many extenuating circumstances and thus can receive various degrees of sanctions from the state, biblically, the death penalty is appropriate for those who murder with planning and intent.  Clearly Abby Johnson no longer thinks she merits punishment from the state, if such had been on the books when she committed her high crimes.

“Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.  And as for you, be fruitful and multiply;
Bring forth abundantly in the earth And multiply in it.” Gen. 9:6-7

Mrs. Johnson conveniently holds to a modernist Catholic position where she strongly opposes capital punishment.   She’s in the business to stop mass-murder while opposing the sanctions of God’s Law against such criminal conduct. 

Not all women who abort would receive capital punishment, as other crimes of murder don’t receive it now, either.  But avoiding the deterrent effect of God’s just Law against those dismember their own child, only serves to increase such butchery.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Johnson’s Speaking Fees: $10,000 to $15,000 with this service.  As well, they are listed as $10,000 to $20,000 with this Speaker’s agent below.

Look at the big cash swirling around just one event involving the popularity (idolatry) of one woman who murdered two of her own children.

If you think a movie (Unplanned) can change someone’s mind, consider this.

See her false characterization / generalization of side-walk counselors at the 52:30 minute mark here.

Now to see what real repentant men and women who participated in, or aborted their children, look like see this screen shot below.  First and foremost they confess Christ, then they confess they murdered their child and are not victims.  They are part of the team in Texas  advocating to criminalize abortion again.  This is who Abby Johnson should turn too, for real spiritual advice and counsel.

Most women are not victims of abortion.  I.e. “I like to f**k and then kill my baby.”  See here.

Meet Abby’s lesbian “pro-life” friends. Are there any pro-life Drag Queens she can invite to one of her Guiding Star events?

State and local governments are defying the Federal government on marijuana (Colorado), immigration (sanctuary cities), compliance with the Paris Accord (Minnesota), 2nd Amd. (red flag laws), etc.  But like most socialists Mrs. Johnson places the welfare state above the lives of the babies with many false scare stories.  Criminalizing abortion would end her gravy train!

Most Women Are Not Victims Of Abortion. Read Their Own Confessions!

We at Rescue the Perishing have been battling abortion since 1980.  Over the years we’ve watched the Christian community and the pro-life movement become thoroughly compromised.  Since the early 1990s people like Leslee Unruh of the National Abstinence Clearinghouse and other national “leaders” started speaking of women has victims of abortion.  This served to ignore the baby in most cases.  (Yes, there are a few that are drug, as teenagers, into an  abortion clinic by their parents and forced to get an abortion.  But that is just a few and we’re not including them as they and their babies were victims of their wicked parents…..probably in more ways than one.)  Far too many pro-life “leaders” are quasi-feminists and many have previously murdered their own child(ren).

But for today the vast majority going into abortion clinics have a heart set on wickedness and often brag about killing their own flesh and blood child.  See this stunning report of true confessions from a Christian sidewalk counselor  in the Houston, TX area.

Laws which the National Right to Live Committee have defended for years, that will not punish the murderous woman, are wicked.  Before you disagree do read the report on our link above.
