Hunger Games in Montana: Judge Flustered By ‘Natural Man’ Ernie Tertelgte Leaves Hearing

A magical duel doth ensue.  May the odds enslave you to inescapable debt…


A Montana man, Ernie Tertelgte appeared in court for fishing without a license and resiting arrests. Tertelgte told the judge “I am a living man protected by natural law and I have the right to forage for food when I am hungry… You are trying to create a fictitious, fraudulent action.”

Tertelgte told the judge, “those men (the arresting officers) were charged by me right back by staging an overthrow of the Constitution of 1789, and the overthrow  Bill of Rights, and overthrow of my rights to forage for food as a natural living person who was in hunger. I was searching for something to put in my stomach as I am recognized to be allowed to by universal law… They violated everything.”

    At this point, when the law has no legitimacy left, this guy might as well go and fish.

    Pirates actually do rule America. This was Buckminster Fuller’s narrative also.

    We have gone so far from what we were that educated judges can’t even understand the point this man is making. You will also notice how he alone of his party wanted to get the fuck out of dodge with a quickness while all his associates were thinking that the battle was won. The natural man knows when to shag ass.

  • Craig Bickford

    They don’t’ want us to believe in natural law, the only real law that exists as truth, instead we are to believe in their priest class laws. The laws of human slavery and authority.

      define natural law?

    Good for him.
    Somehow I think if some black dude were to try the same thing in LA, things would not go as well for him.
    If every single person brought before a court were to do this, then we might have something interesting.

      You would be wrong! My guess iss you never saw the video of the Black Guy who basically says the same thing and walks…

    The tragedy of the commons is irrelevant as it wasn’t the fact the man had too many fish, it was the fact he did not have a license. It is the fact he had the audacity to take a fish from the crowns waters without paying tribute.
