Strange behavior. The bailiffs pounce on him for saying one tiny little thing, smash him down into the floor, and drag him out of the room? Very odd indeed. The AP article below states that Loughner has been “forcibly” drugged up for about a year on heavy psychotropic drugs. Why? Who’s afraid to hear him talk? Perhaps someone is afraid he’ll say that he was set up as a patsy, and that the real target was Judge John Roll for going against the Obama administration’s claim that they could seize property and misappropriate it into war? Is it possible Judge John Roll was assassinated?
Blogger Sorcha Faal states that “Federal Judge John McCarthy Roll was the Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Arizona who this past Friday issued what is called a “preliminary ruling”in a case titled “United States of America v. $333,520.00 in United States Currency et al” [Case Number: 4:2010cv00703 Filed: November 30, 2010] wherein he stated he was preparing to rule against Obama’s power to seize American citizens money without clear and convincing evidence of a crime being committed.
The case being ruled on by Judge Roll, this report continues, was about bulk cash smuggling into or out of the United States that the Obama administration claimed was their right to seize under what are called Presidential Executive Orders, instead of using existing laws. The Obama administration used as support for their claim before Judge Roll, the SVR says, the seizing of all American citizens’ gold, in 1933, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 6102, which was ruled at the time to be constitutional.”
If this is true, this would explain the need for Loughner not to speak during his ‘trial’, and to make it as quick as possible to avoid the publicity surrounding the revelation that Judge John Roll was the real target of this attack, not Gabby Giffords.

Loughner pleads guilty to Ariz. shooting
TUCSON, Ariz. — Jared Lee Loughner agreed Tuesday to spend the rest of his life in prison, accepting that he went on a deadly shooting rampage at an Arizona political gathering and sparing the victims a lengthy, possibly traumatic death-penalty trial.
His plea came soon after a federal judge found that months of psychiatric treatment for schizophrenia made Loughner able to understand charges that he killed six people and wounded 13 others, including his intended target, then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
“I plead guilty,” the 23-year-old college dropout said.
His hair closely cropped, Loughner was not the smiling, bald-headed suspect captured in a mugshot soon after the January 2011 shooting.
Wearing khakis, Loughner sat quietly throughout the hearing and smiled at one point when a psychologist testifying about his competence remarked that he had bonded with one of the federal prison guards.
After the hearing, Loughner’s parents cried and embraced. The victims mostly just watched without expression.
Judge Larry A. Burns accepted the plea agreement and said that he found it to be in the best interest of everyone involved.
The outcome was welcomed by some victims, including Giffords herself, as a way to move on.
“The pain and loss caused by the events of Jan. 8, 2011, are incalculable,” Giffords said in a joint statement with her husband, Mark Kelly. “Avoiding a trial will allow us – and we hope the whole Southern Arizona community – to continue with our recovery.”
Experts had concluded that Loughner suffers from schizophrenia, and officials at a federal prison have forcibly medicated him with psychotropic drugs for more than a year.
