M. Roy Bendshadler
Bendshadler is a Constitutional Counselor, and the host
of the Constitutional Crusader’s show here on the
American Voice Radio Network. The show comes on every
Monday at 6pm ET/3pm PT. He holds a Masters in
Constitutional Law and a J.y.D. in Contract Law. He
currently is living in a small-town (population less
than 15k) in the mid-Willamette Valley in Oregon with
his Bound Partner of 7 years.
Constitutional Counselor, M. Roy lives by the Common
Law. When asked “what is the Common Law?” he will put
quite simply, that it is Law that is common to us all,
whether we want to recognize it or not. Like the Law of
Gravity… one may jump off a cliff and deny the Law of
Gravity until they are blue in the face, but eventually
they are going to reach the bottom and find out that the
Law of Gravity applies to them whether they want to
recognize it or not!
M. Roy has been
an activist in excess of 20 years doing community radio,
cable-access T.V. and was even on a Commercial AM
station for nearly a year until it went bankrupt. The
current Constitutional Crusader’s Show inaugurated on
AVR July 4, 2005 for one hour each week.
grew quickly in popularity and was soon expanded to the
current two hour format. The time-slot was deliberately
targeted as approximately 85% of the population of the U.S.
that works the “traditional” 9-5 time frame is off of work
for the majority of the show. The show has very strong
Libertarian viewpoints and stresses the concepts of
self-reliance rather than relying on Government, and
On January 10, 2008
M. Roy was arrested along with three others (a fourth
“turned himself in” later) and the five were charged with a
single-count of 18 USC 371, “Conspiracy to Defraud the U.S.”
The keywords in that previous sentence were “single-count”
as there was no charge of fraud itself, just conspiracy to
_____ … yup, blank, nothing, no primary charge of anything.
This is the same as charging someone with using a handgun
while robbing a bank, but not charging for any bank-robbery.
To make a very long-story short, despite the fact that no
fraud was shown against the U.S. or any agency OF the U.S.,
a sham-trial in a court who’s only jurisdiction is over
civil-matters ignored the rights of confronting witnesses,
calling exculpatory witnesses, and blatantly denied M. Roy’s
right to testify and tell the jury the facts the Judge in
the case lied to them about… among many, many other
violations of Common Law. M. Roy was “convicted” and
eventually “sentenced” to 15 months in the Federal Gulag at
the Taft Camp in the southern California desert.
By the time
“good-time” is taken into consideration, this amounted to
just under a year.
During the “Sentencing hearing” the Judge kept
asking the prosecution why any time at all should be
sentenced to Mr. Bendshadler while the prosecution
demanded the full 5-years possible. The Judge kept
asking for legal reasons why the full 5-years should
be imposed and finally the AUSA’s response was,
clearly on the record, that “Mr. Bendshadler has a
radio show and he must be shut-up so his audience
will go away.” This did not impress the Judge, but
due to the number of “points” awarded for the
“conviction” she felt compelled to do the 15-month
During the time of M. Roy’s stay
as a Political Prisoner at Taft, all indicators show that
not only did the Constitutional Crusader’s Show not go away,
but actually increased in listeners. Since M. Roy’s return
to live-air-time the show has become the most-listened-to
Political Talk Show originating on the internet when live.
M. Roy offers
personal counseling in many areas and is generally available
Tue-Saturday, 10am-8pm Pacific Time at 971.270.2033 and
encourages those who call to have recorders running since
the Feds already record every phone call, email, fax, text,
tweet, blog and fart… OK, maybe not every fart, but it’s
getting darn near close to that. Besides, if you record the
call, you can listen to it several times and be able to come
back with new questions.
