13-12-05 Falsely imprisoned Alabama blogger ROGER SHULER: Did the gay porn pics of conservative US Judge Bill Pryor do the trick? Or was it NDAA?

Whether ROGER SHULER is falsely imprisoned for exposing an extramarital affair of a state politician, or old gay porn photographs of a the conservative US judge BILL PRIOR, it is retaliation against a well known whistleblower on judicial corruption.  The assault on whistleblower on judicial corruption has been one of the harshest over the past decade.
 
[pics]  Orange prison jumpsuit photographs: a) RICHARD FINE: Former US prosecutor, exposed and rebuked the taking of bribes by California judges.  He was falsely imprisoned in solitary confinement in Los Angeles for 18 months. His false booking records showed that he was arrested on location and by authority of the non-existent "Municipal Court of Sand Pedro". His habeas corpus in the US courts was subjected to sham/simulated review, and was denied, invoking the Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA);b) ROGER SHULER: Alabama blogger has been chronicling for years judicial corruption.  Now he is falsely imprisoned in Shelby County, Alabama. The judgment and warrant that led to his arrest are still to be discovered. Would ROGER SHULER's habeas corpus be denied, invoking the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2013, which authorizes indefinite detentions?

ROGER SHULER was writing on Alabama judicial and political corruption since at least 2007. He definitely gained a level of respectable expertise in the area, recognized among those of us reporting on the state and US judicial corruption from coast to coast. But all those years ROGER SHULER was not harmed.

Currently, ROGER SHULER is falsely imprisoned. According to the official narrative, he was arrested under a warrant (never served, never seen) and judgment (never served) for contempt, stemming from the violation of a Prior Restraint order (was it ever signed? entered? served?), against futher publications' pertaining to a Republican Alabama politician's extramarital affair.

However, the other ROGER SHULER publication, not long before the onset of this troubles, was the story of the gay porn pics of conservative US JUDGE BILL PRIOR (see below).
  • So it is too far fetched to suggest that ROGER SHULER's abuse may be related, at least in part, to his publication regarding conservative US JUDGE BILL PRIOR? 
  • And is it too far fetched to suggest that ROGER SHULER's habeas corpus review in a US court will never address the validly of the records of the imprisonment (if ever discovered, ACLU is on the case) - after all, that was exactly how they handled RICHARD FINE's habeas corpus.... (where the booking records stated that he was arrested on location and by authority of the non-existent "Municipal Court of San Pedro"). 
  • And it too far fetched to suggest that ROGER SHULER's habeas corpus petition will likely be accorded sham/simulated review, with no authenticated or certified judicial records - as was the case for RICHARD FINE? 
  • And it too far fetched to suggest that ROGER SHULER's habeas corpus sham/simulated denial decision will mischievously refer to NDAA (e.g., as permitting prior restrain. or another ludicrous notion like that) - as was the case in RICHARD FINE's case, where Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 was mischievously inferred in Magistrate Carla Woehrle Opinion and Recommendation to justify the false imprisonment? And it too far fetched to suggest that ROGER SHULER's case all along will be marked by denial of public access to court records, just as was the case for RICHARD FINE?
Regardless of whether ROGER SHULER is falsely imprisoned for exposing an extramarital affair of a state politician, or old gay porn photographs of a the conservative US judge BILL PRIOR, it is retaliation against a well known whistleblower on judicial corruption. The assault on whistleblower on judicial corruption has been one of the harshest over the past decade.

Nude Photographs Of Federal Judge Bill Pryor Appeared In The 1990s On A Gay Pornography Site


 
U.S. Judge Bill Pryor
(WARNING: This report includes an explicit photograph at the end of the post. The photograph was captured from a gay porn Web site and features full-frontal male nudity. If you do not wish to view such an image, please do not scroll to the bottom of this post.)

Nude photographs of federal judge Bill Pryor  appeared in the 1990s on a gay pornography Web site, a Legal Schnauzer investigation shows.

The photos appeared in 1997 on badpuppy.com , which was in its online infancy, having debuted in mid 1995. Based in Cocoa, Florida, the site has morphed into one of the largest gay porn sites on the Web.

Images obtained by Legal Schnauzer show Pryor posing completely nude, staring into the camera and sporting a noticeable erection. We see no indication that the photos were taken surreptitiously, without Pryor's knowledge. Sources say Pryor was college age when the photos were taken.

Pryor rose to national prominence in Republican circles on the basis of a staunchly conservative record, including consistent opposition to gay rights . He also has supported school prayer and the death penalty, while opposing abortion rights, making him a highly unpopular figure among liberal and progressive interest groups.

A married father of two, Pryor lives in Vestavia Hills and his federal-court duty station is in Alabama, with an office on the ninth floor of the Hugo Black Federal Courthouse in downtown Birmingham. Pryor revealed during his confirmation hearings that he and his wife, Kristan W. Pryor, rescheduled a family vacation to Disney World  when they discovered the Orlando, Florida, theme park had scheduled "Gay Days" festivities at the same time as their planned visit.

What is the public to make of revelations that Pryor once was featured on a gay porn Web site? It clearly raises questions about rank hypocrisy, dating to the beginnings of Pryor's political career. It also raises the specter of Pryor being ethically compromised to the point that he is the victim of not-so-subtle blackmail, forced to participate in rulings that he knows are unlawful, at risk of his secrets being revealed. Most importantly, federal nominees typically are asked during the confirmation process about potentially embarrassing or compromising information in their backgrounds. If Pryor failed to disclose the gay-porn photographs, or did not answer a specific question truthfully under oath, it could be grounds for a Senate investigation.

G. Thomas Porteous Jr., a federal judge in Louisiana, was removed from the bench in 2010 , and one of the articles of impeachment against him involved charges that he intentionally misled the Senate during his confirmation process.

Alabama law-enforcement officials became aware of the photos at badpuppy.com in 1997, not long before Governor Fob James appointed Pryor attorney general. An investigation ensued, and multiple officials familiar with that process have told Legal Schnauzer that the photos are, in fact, of the Bill Pryor who now sits on the U.S. Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Sources say the photos were taken while Pryor was a student at Northeast Louisiana University (now University of Louisiana Monroe) from 1980 to 1984.

Legal Schnauzer contacted Judge Pryor last Friday via e-mail, seeking an interview about the photographs and their possible implications for his role on the federal bench. Pryor responded as follows:

I have nothing to say to you except that these accusations are totally false.
Do not contact me again.
Bill Pryor 

I replied by stating that these are not "accusations," they are photographs of an individual that multiple sources have identified as him. I further stated that I had every right, as a citizen and a journalist, to seek comment from a public official with a lifetime appointment, regarding matters of national importance. For good measure, I attached copies of the photographs. Pryor responded as follows: 

This is the last time I will respond to you. Those photos are not of me.
Do not contact me again.
Bill Pryor

I informed Pryor that I would include his response in my upcoming series of posts.

A screenshot from a group of photos titled "WizardBoy Gallery #19" shows a head shot of an individual, and beside that is the name "Bill Pryor." It also includes the name "Tom Wander," with links to 15 pictures.

The Pryor photos likely appeared in at least one print publication in the 1980s and remained relatively unknown until an informant provided a tip to investigators with the Alabama Bureau of Investigations (ABI) that they had appeared in the digital world. A number of prominent Republicans became aware of the photos once they hitbadpuppy.com, and a major Republican business/political figure confronted Pryor about them, a source tells Legal Schnauzer. The photos disappeared frombadpuppy.com one day after that meeting, but ABI investigators already had captured screen shots that are dated September 17, 1997. (One of the screen shots can be viewed at the end of this post. Warning: The screen shot involves full-frontal male nudity, taken from a gay porn site.)

 
Even though major political figures were aware of the photos, they did not prove to be a hurdle when President George W. Bush nominated Pryor to the federal bench in 2003 and installed him via a recess appointment in February 2004. The staunchly right-wing Pryor was perhaps the most controversial nominee of the Bush presidency. A bipartisan "Gang of 14" U.S. senators reached an agreement to allow an up-or-down vote on Pryor and two other nominees, and they were confirmed by a 53-45 margin on June 9, 2005.

Were the FBI and the Senate Judiciary Committee made aware of Pryor's connections to gay porn during his confirmation process? Our sources say the answer almost certainly is no, and in fact, the photos might have helped him get nominated over numerous conservative candidates who had far more judicial experience in the Eleventh Circuit. Pryor was elected Alabama attorney general in 1998, and was re-elected in 2002, but he had never served in a judicial capacity at the time of his nomination.

Why then was Pryor chosen, when many experts saw Sharon Lovelace Blackburn  (now presiding judge in the Northern District of Alabama) as among numerous more qualified candidates? Our sources say high-level Republicans, likely including White House strategist Karl Rove, knew the gay-porn photos put Pryor in a weak position--and they would make him easy to control on the bench. (More on this angle of the story coming in future posts.)

Rove and Republican operative Bill Canary helped manage Pryor's 1998 campaign for attorney general. Pryor went on to become a central figure in perhaps the most notorious political prosecution in American history. As Alabama attorney general,Pryor launched an investigation of Governor Don Siegelman  that morphed into a federal probe, under U.S. Attorney Leura Canary (Bill Canary's wife).

Siegelman appeared to have won re-election in 2002 when it was announced late on election night that he held a slight edge over Republican Bob Riley. The race was ultra close in large part because of press coverage about the investigation that Pryor had launched.

Alabamians awoke the next morning to news that votes for Siegelman had disappeared overnight in heavily Republican Baldwin County, shifting the election to Riley. Pryorordered the ballots sealed  and stated that anyone who attempted a recount would be subject to arrest.

Siegelman attempted a political comeback in 2006, and polls showed him as the favorite at one point. But those plans were derailed when the federal investigation led to indictments on corruption charges. The former governor and HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy wound up being convicted on charges many legal experts have characterized as standard political behavior that does not amount to violations of criminal statutes. Multiple appeals from Siegelman and Scrushy have been denied in the Atlanta-based Eleventh Circuit, where Bill Pryor now sits.

As for badpuppy.comit was relatively unknown when the Bill Pryor photos appeared there. But the site has exploded in popularity, becoming what appears to be the "Wal-Mart of gay porn." It bills itself as "a massive gay porn supersite ," featuring free movies that are recorded and broadcast in high definition.

The site's entry page states that it has "been continuously online since May 17, 1995." Badpuppy was the first gay adult membership site  and features both amateur men and professional gay porn stars. The brand hosts 30 additional Web sites that form the "Badpuppy Network."

Badpuppy's operators clearly are in the business of making money, and going by the site's huge presence on the Internet, they must be doing a good job of it. The site's founders probably never imagined they might someday help rattle the American political and judicial landscape. But images from Badpuppy's early days could morph into one of the most shocking judicial scandals in modern American history.

Below is a screen shot of Bill Pryor, captured from badpuppy.comSeptember 17, 1997.

I seep into power through dimension of rhyme,
Life's sweet and its sour like lemon and lime,
But if sour is sweet no dissension of mind,
The weak tend to cower did I mention we're fine,
Every week every hour there's tension you'll find,
To the peak of the tower together we'll climb,
The we'll topple the tower to surf the incline,
We'll stop all the power of Satan's design,
Temptation we're showered with fear of the mind,
But elation allows us the mind of divine,
Become your best self so try to refine,
Your definition condition intuition aligned,
Watch out for the devils they'll come for your spine,
But if you stay straight, your fate they won't dine,
Upon you are strong not a pawn but a king,
Move along in this life recognize your blessings,
You sing and you rap its a fact its a wrap,
Just stay on the track of your internal map,
Snap! goes the bones of the Earth as they moan,
They are grown don't condone what they've grown its been shown,
Like the screening of a film, that they scream and they kill,
Scream is a film where they scream and they spill,
The blood of their brothers, sisters and mothers,
Under blankets and the covers you may watch under cover,
When you search you uncover, when you search you uncover,
Ever since your day of birth you know you've been under,
The influence of human fears, now you start to wonder,
Why, wonder why, when I let my fears go,
I can feel the Great Spirit and together we go,
Together we grow and together we know,
What our purpose upon the Earth is, 
Birds of a feather in the snow
