Failure to comply or failure to respond? Contempt charge for former White House aide

This man is likely going to prison for four months not because he did not ‘comply’ with the subpoena, but because he did not respond or send back the subpoena.

CNN reports:

Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison for his refusal to comply with a subpoena from the House Select Committee that investigated the January 6, 2021, US Capitol attack.

But later in the same article is a quote from the US Solicitor General talking about a ‘total failure’ to comply.

US Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar countered to the justices that even “a successful claim of privilege would not excuse applicant’s total failure to comply with the subpoena.

I then presume he could have taken some actions related to the subpoena to avoid prison time. I would suggest everyone either:

  1. Send back the subpoena in a larger envelope with a note. See directions here.
  2. Reply with a conditional acceptance saying, as a man (meaning mankind), if thou can prove jurisdiction over me, the man, I would be happy to ‘appear’ in thy court. But since most of their courts are only for paper persons/franchises, they won’t be able to meet that condition.

But one must never ignore or exhibit a ‘total failure’ to respond.

I also notice that the official is a general! It’s a military occupation of the territories, which is fine, but they are treating the 50 states as territories! They could not be more explicit to tell us this is a military occupation. Their officials are generals! We also have the Attorney General, the Surgeon General, etc.

The more well-known Armed Forces also have generals, but of course, everyone knows those generals cannot control the people, since the people sit above the generals. My point is that I don’t care if there hundreds of generals doing this and that, does not apply to me! Though I may need to rebut their presumptions from time to time.
