Exonerate Schaeffer Cox

Short Summary

Schaeffer Cox, 29, is a husband and father of two young children. He is a political activist. In 2008, Cox ran for the Alaska House of Representatives. His platform was simple:

The government needs to follow the Constitution because it's the law.

Cox argued that when the government disregards the law and tramples on others, simply because they are powerful enough to do so and get away with it, it hurts them as a Nation. He went on to point out that that sort of heavy handed disregard for their basic obligations costs the government their stability at home and their credibility abroad. His message was well received by the people and local government. After the election, Schaeffer Cox spent time traveling and gave speeches outlying a peaceful way to reclaim individual liberty. His message continued to warn the people attending his speeches that the Federal Government's current behavior was unsustainable. He contended, that the responsibility would fall back on to the shoulders of the people who had created the Government and let it run off its rails.As Schaeffer Cox continued to give speeches, the crowds grew. This caught the attention of the Federal Government. Cox now had the world's most powerful government as an enemy. For the next several months, Cox and his family now had the force of the Federal Government against them. The FBI played a key role in trying to provoke Cox and when those attempts failed, the FBI began tearing apart the family.

What turned out to be a nightmare, continues. Schaeffer Cox is currently serving a 26 year sentence. The charges the Federal Government came up with range from conspiracy to murder federal workers to weapons charges. He is being held in a communications management unit (CMU, also known as Little Guantanamo) in Marion, IL.

Schaeffer Cox is an example of the tyrannical grip the Federal Government has on the people and their thoughts. Your help is needed to raise the necessary funds needed to retain Attorney Robert John to exonerate Schaeffer Cox. There is no injured party; there was no crime. At what point has the overreaching grip of the Federal Government gone too far? If someone does not think the way the Federal Government wants them to or challenges the policies, the person is considered a threat.

Spent large sums of time and money on this effort, all I am asking here is spread the word not so much as paying the king's ransom but righting injustice of epic proportions.

I am trying a few spellings of Schaeffer, Shafer, Shaeffer Cox and not coming up with a location on the BOP website.

Richard Serafin has a release date of 2015 listed, but the site says "not in BOP custody".

Looks like bop.gov inmate locator has done some updates, with a "voice concerns" link when you do a search. I test the system with searches for higher profile people like Richard Marcinko or Gordon Liddy and their listings still come up, so I think the system is still working but our guys are getting the Gitmo treatment.

Lenonard Peltier is still fully listed with his current location.

Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout is listed at the same prison where Cox was last reported to be. Supposedly, some folks in Russia would pay a lot for his "liberation from custody". I would guess that political pressure from the Russian government has the US government playing a lot more fair with him, but we also consider that if anybody were the most competent, capable and motivated players to bust someone out of the US Prison system, former Spetsnaz, KGB and GRU operatives would be the most likely candidates up to the task, not the Alaskan militia groups who would supposedly be motivated to bust Cox out, yet we are apparently seeing Cox getting maximum level "enemy of the state treatment in comparison to people like Viktor Bout and Leonard Peltier. both of which have political and diplomatic resources dedicated to their release along with an established history of connections with competent tactical operatives.

The treatment of our people in these situations seems to mainly be the result of pure sadistic pleasure on the part of government officials, not any particular security or political concerns.

Got one person with public exposure to put up the link, they were threatened and they immediately took it down.

Already suffered loss of life property and scared honor, still risking martyrdom so I will continue to stand on principle but as for American people, they can enjoy the hell this nation has become.

"Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast and that the once-happy plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?" -- George Washington in a letter to a friend

His real name - which he apparently doesn't use - is Francis August Schaeffer Cox. Use Francis Cox in the inmate locator, and he is at Marion USP, with a release date of 09/09/2033. His inmate number is 16179-006.

Another case I'd like to see get some publicity is that of Veronza Bowers, Jr. He's not exactly "one of ours" (he was a member of the old Black Panther Party), but he has now spent almost forty years in prison for a murder he probably did not commit. He has never admitted his guilt (if he had, he would probably have been paroled long ago), and the two government informants who testified against him did so in return for having their own charges dropped.

quote:
Veronza was convicted in the murder of a U.S. Park Ranger on the word of two government informers, both of whom received reduced sentences for other crimes by the Federal prosecutor's office. There were no eye-witnesses and no evidence independent of these informants to link him to the crime. At his trial, Veronza offered alibi testimony which was not credited by the jury. Nor was testimony of two relatives of the informants who insisted that they were lying. The informants had all charges against them in this case dropped and one was given $10,000 by the government according to the prosecutor's post-sentencing report. Veronza has consistently proclaimed his innocence of the crime he never committed — even at the expense of having his appeals for parole denied — for which an admission of guilt and contrition is virtually required — he insists on maintaining his innocence.

The Black Panther Party was targeted by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI in its infamous Cointelpro Operation which, during its years of operation from 1956 to 1971, surveilled, infiltrated, manipulated and tried to provoke criminal activities by entirely lawful civil rights and peace demonstrators exercising their First Amendment rights to oppose government policies. Hoover referred to the BPP as "the greatest threat to the internal security of this country" and authorized surveillance of many black and antiwar leaders including Martin Luther King.

Despite letters of support from prominent attorneys, former high-ranking representatives of regional commissions, prison officials and a member of the U.S. Congress, Veronza has continually been denied release due to intervention by the U.S. Parole Commission. A recent decision by the regional federal parole commission to grant his release was overturned by the National Commission.

With the truth coming out daily about the high incidence of inmates who have been falsely convicted and imprisoned, exonerations of Death Row prisoners (156 to date), police and prosecutorial malfeasance and other failures of the criminal justice system, Veronza's case deserves careful review.

Thursday February 6th a internet broad cast was done late evening Pacific time.

The informant popped up to give his side of the story this is his website and reply

http://williamfulton.net/

So, last night Schaeffer Cox’s supporters did a web cast to earn some money for his legal fund. I think its noble to help your friends out. I don’t think its noble in any way, shape or form to lie to do it.

Look Kiddies…..

The Government didn’t start looking into Crazy Cox for any reason other than his 2009 speech in Montana where he stated:

“It is not a rag-tag deal. I mean, we’re set: we’ve got a medical unit that’s got surgeons and doctors and medical trucks and mobile surgery units and stuff like that. We’ve got engineers that make GPS jammers, cell phone jammers, bombs, and all sorts of nifty stuff. We’ve got guys with, we’ve got airplanes with laser acquisition stuff and we’ve got rocket launchers and grenade launchers and claymores and machine guns and calvary and we’ve got boats. It’s all set.”

Why wouldn’t the government look into this guy??? He just admitted to about twenty violations of Federal law. So really, thats why we took a look at him. It had nothing to do with lawful speech, just admitting to criminal activity in front of 1,000 people.

“They used the patriot act to take him down”. “That’s why the state charges were dropped”. No, ‘they’ didn’t. The reason his attorney got the state charges dropped was because the State has different rules of evidence and different burdens of proof on their warrants than the feds do. Alaska has a very stringent privacy clause in its constitution, so the procedural rules for investigating are tighter than the Feds. There was no use of the Patriot Act in this investigation. Saying so stirs up the “I hate the Goberment” crowd, but is an outright falsification.

“They were coming for his kid!” I love this one. Somehow “a photo of Crazy Cox’s kid in a pile of ammo is what triggered a Child Protection Services investigation”. While hating CPS and the government getting involved in how you raise your kids hits a few outrage points on your rightwing ‘how should I think today’ list – again, none of this is true. Schaeffer, while driving down the road with his kid in the car, got into an argument with his wife to the point of driving with one hand and wrapping the other around her throat. I give no quarter to men who hit women. I especially find it despicable when they do it in front of their sons, training in another generation of abusers. After Schaeffer plead guilty to a lesser charge than the domestic battery they were going to stick him with, CPS wanted to interview his kid. Because, for one – the kid was present for the admitted abuse, and two – any time you have a domestic violence situation and there are children in the home CPS is required to look into it.

There was so much bullshit in the webcast it will take me a while to wade through it all. Those were just the easy things to point out. What the Crazy Cox fan club doesn’t understand is the whole case has so much documentation – recordings, police reports, video, etc. – there is no denying the facts of what happened. If you want to help your friend – do it. But stop the disinformation. It hurts your case and makes you look like some “Cult of Schaeffer” instead of concerned citizens.

Ex-FBI informant, and the man who helped put domestic terrorist Schaeffer Cox behind bars, has a blog.

http://theimmoralminority.blogspot.com/2014/02/ex-fbi-informant-and-man-who-helped-put.html

quote:
I received a call late last night from our friend Bill Fulton.

"Hey Jess, guess what, I have a blog."

And sure enough he does. And it is a little intense:

Understand this if you are an extremist if you look to harm innocents regardless of your political affiliation we will find you we will dig you out from under whatever rock you hide under and put you in front of a jury and you will receive justice. I have dedicated my life to finding you exposing you and dragging you out into the light of day I don’t care what side left or right you cling to my job is to protect the innocents and I will do all in my power to accomplish it.

As some of you may, or may not know, Bill is currently down in the lower 48, working undercover with the FBI and helping to catch bad guys.

As you can see he takes his job very seriously. Which is why I had to use an old photo at the top, because he is not able to reveal what he looks like today or else he will tip off the militia members, KKK members, or motorcycle gang members who think he is one of them, and he might get shot in the face.

Now you may be asking yourself, "Hey if he is undercover why would he start a blog?"

Good question and the answer to that is coming my friends. And oh, are you going to like it when you hear it.

You know sometimes my job is just too much fun.

What a load of horse shit. The guy is just playing the age old "prep the jury pool and smear the targets reputation" game.

It is real easy to ferret out the agenda on phonies like that when the bulk of the cases they produce are the result of making friends with vulnerable people, appealing to their legitimate grievances and concerns, then indulging in free flow conversation (carefully edited later in the FBI lab and with some creative report writing coached by the US Attorneys office) which leads to what maybe the person wishes they could do, then facilitating what looks like the means to that end.

There are plenty of big bad dangerous dudes in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan to go after. Plenty of badasses who need to be put down over in central Africa, but this guy wants to run a progrom against those who have been fucked with by the government, or sympathize with those who have been fucked with by the government.

The measuring stick for such "civil rights concerns" is real easy - they have plenty to say about movement people prior to a trial and will assert lies either way, while they are dead silent about .gov people doing bad shit to people and even after clear cut convictions based on clear cut evidence, will be very careful to report only the most basic facts. Its real easy to ferret that shit out during a recruitment attempt too. "How about you send me undercover down in New Orleans, and we get to the bottom of the Danziger Bridge killings". Watch how quickly that offer to work for the government as an undercover operative or PSYOPS blogger evaporates.

Fuck Bill Fulton. If, and I say very carefully IF Cox were all pissed off about being threatened, harassed and intimidated by the authorities that he supposedly came up with this plan of retaliation in case some of his people were murdered, I am curious what the fuck Bill Fulton was telling him. "Yo bro, if .gov decides to waste your mother you better just roll with it and start behaving...".

If someone were or is talking pre-emptive strikes, you work to talk them down, smooth things over. If they get a bit too out there with it, you cut back on association. If you hear too much hothead stuff and are not sure, then you put it out like we have with Jim Stach and Adam Kokesh, you don't go setting them up.

I have spent a lot of time going through the speeches of Schaeffer Cox, and in all honesty, it is preachy long winded BS. Those "immoral minority" people only hate him because of his religious background and I am 100% positive at this point, any armed hostility that would have involved Cox or his inner circle on one side or the other had to have been provoked by the other side. I know what violent tough guys really are, and they ain't Schaeffer Cox. What is being done to him is just plain cruelty on the behalf of sadistic cowards who want to "stick it to a church boy."

This shit with Bull Fulton working biker cases also shows how far that whole world has fallen, that and the "Ex" Hells Angel who helped set up Cox and his people.

I for one would love to see this piece of shit show up at that enclave we've discussed before in another forum. Most likely he would quickly become bear bait.

I am willing to bet right now that prick is working "undercover" at one of the prisons, that's why he does not care if anyone sees his picture on the outside. They throw a bunch of temporary tattoos on him and let him loose a prison yard for a little while talking the right talk around the targeted people so they can "hatch a plan" which keeps them locked up longer.

If that asshole had one month of regular patrol duty law enforcement experience he would not be talking the absurd bullshit he is talking about how some domestic issue is justified leading to a 25 year prison sentence.

I can't think of a single cop who has done more than oh two weeks of graveyard shifts and answering those sorts of calls who does not have stories about how inconsistently those sorts of cases go. Big prison sentences are not for a single incident they are for ongoing abuse. I am not trying to trivialize domestic violence, but that shit about "no quarter". What bullshit. The very first domestic disturbance I ever answered was a cop smacked his wife in a hotel room, and his supervisor was at the same resort (I worked night shift uniformed security), heard the call on the scanner, got there before I did, met me at the door and told me "the rules". I marched right back out of there. Yeah, let Fulton answer a call like that, but you know the ignorant fuck never did. The wife beater got dealt with alright but discretion kept it off the books.

Did Fulton and his crew step up to give Cox an attitude adjustment, smooth things over and keep it out of the limelight, saving the rest of us bad press? Fuck no, he wanted the money and glamor of playing Fed Jr. Just like the self promoting bullshit from Mike Hollingsworth, this guy consorts with the most hostile faction he can in order to promote himself and then thinks us who have been around a while and know the score "just refuse to understand". I'll bet you 110% that the feds don't trust him around their homes and families either, guaranfuckingteed.

Schaeffer Cox is serving a 26-year sentence. Read his story at FreeScaefferCox.com. And if you have a dollar or two, he still needs money for his appeals.

The thing that should be angering the country is the simple fact that we as a so called nation of laws would have political prisoners. It should not be tolerated and all measure should be taken by the masses to quell such behavior.
Sadly politicals are not freed until they are on their last leg.

Fulton needs to think and realize. That any body can be hit. No one is immune from that. By making himself out to be a rat he is seen as a liability for ANY organization. Rats are best eliminated by a rat trap. And Viktor makes the best rat traps. That rat better not take any bait ever again or Viktor will get him.

50 Reasons To Exonerate Schaeffer Cox

http://www.freeschaeffercox.com/50-reasons-to-exonerate-schaeffer-cox/

Please click the lick to the page

quote:
Schaeffer Cox Papers #1: SUPPRESS THEN LIE.
The government, by motions and hearsay objections suppressed their own secret recordings of Cox saying he was leaving the country and that he would not participate in violence. The government then turned around and argued to the jury that Cox’s testimony of the same was false because he could offer no recordings to corroborate his claims.

This is a tad off topic, but Are we not sometimes more dangerous to our freedom than anyone else?..

I can't count the times I have been on some militia's site, and looked at pictures of members standing masked, with their weapons in hands...

Talking about operations...

Then quietly in a private message, I have to inform them they have given away their identity..

I tell them did you notice your serial # of your weapon was visible?..( all I had to do was blow up the pic)..

Or that did you notice that old license plate on the shelf behind you?..

or some other really silly mistake..


Of course some get mad.. others are thankful...

But, the reason I told that story is to ask...

Are we not giving the Feds the ammo to come after some of us?...

Do we not think about every action, before we do, or say it?.

Cox was a scape goat, and a warning to the rest of us.. He doesn't deserve to be in prison for 26 ears...But he did make some really poor operational mistakes.

The Federal Framing of Schaeffer Cox
Schaeffer Cox
Schaeffer Cox
image facebook twitter imageShare This Article

By Ron Lee
Investigative Journalist
Steve Skrocki
AUSA Steve Skrocki

Fairbanks, AK - On January 8, 2012, US District Judge Robert Bryan sentenced 27-year-old Francis “Schaeffer” Cox to almost 26 years in prison, in most part for a conspiracy to commit murder charge the prosecution, led by Asstistant US Attorney (AUSA) Steve Skrocki, deceitfully sold to a jury as being Cox's plan.

Now, 4 years later, revelations are exposing the system as the conspirators, having acted to frame the man who has sat confined in the Communications Management Unit (CMU) of the Federal Prison in Marion, Illinois.* The real story never made it to the people of Alaska and, more importantly, to the jury. No one heard the truth of the government's obsession with getting rid of Cox. They never got to read the investigating special agent's emails saying Cox was not a threat, and that he had no real “intention.” The witness intimidation; the countless hours of audio recordings of Cox refusing to use violence; all were things the government skillfully covered up in order to get their man and paint the public perception that Cox was guilty, when in fact his only guilt was to speak out against a government that proved itself to be capable of entrapment.

“This case is by far the worst travesty of justice I have encountered in my 25-year legal career.” said Fairbanks attorney Robert John who was able to exonerate Cox of all charges in the Alaska State case. Writing in a press release in 2014, John lamented, “While our tradition applauds those who stand up and exercise their constitutional rights, the government's new definition of terrorism condemns such patriotic actions, as this young Alaskan family man Schaeffer Cox, has unfortunately learned.”

A talented speaker and 2nd Amendment advocate, Cox was a skilled orator. After the 2008 election, he was traveling outside Alaska warning citizens in fiery speeches about the tyrannical path of the federal government. His speeches drew the attention of the FBI and on February 16, 2010, the FBI initiated a preliminary investigation. The next month, on March 25, 2010, an AUSA in Anchorage, Joe Bottini, determined that Schaeffer “has not crossed the line” between “protected speech” and “actionable threat.” Again, on April 4, 2010, that opinion was independently confirmed by another AUSA, Stephen Cooper, in Fairbanks who likewise agreed that legal action was inappropriate.

By every measure Cox was an outstanding citizen who had a reputation for helping others. Yet even after soliciting the opinion of two Assistant United States Attorneys, Bottini and Cooper, who each independently determined that legal action was not appropriate, the FBI continued to “investigate” him.
Schaeffer Cox
Schaeffer Cox in Prison

Schaeffer Cox, now 32 years old, is no longer the clean-cut “kid” he used to be - prison has changed that; his wrongful conviction has changed that. Sporting lengthy locks and a scruffy face, he looks more the part the government falsely portrayed him to be - the part of a ruffian ready to kill any and all federal, state, and local officials that stood in his way while he created a new America. It's a part that, frankly, lacked any proof and only ever relied on circumstantial evidence and claims by government paid witnesses. But, Cox's “investigation” and subsequent conviction have really formalized how the government attacks cases of “political” interest; those where the government decides they need to make an example out of someone, in order to make other people fall in line.

Law enforcement as a whole has moved away from the more observational type of investigating where they watch a person until that person commits a crime to a more proactive role as the one's with the criminal plan, oftentimes selling it to unsuspecting “suspects” whose only “crime” beforehand was to speak what they believe by exercising their first Amendment rights. Quite frankly, most people only speak out against government abuse in their bedrooms and from behind closed doors; Schaeffer Cox chose the pulpit, making him the perfect patsy for the government to tell the budding patriot movement in Alaska, to back off.

Here is how it works, as it did in Cox's case...

The government enlists the aid of individuals who are typically facing criminal charges of their own, in exchange for greatly reduced or dismissed charges, as well as pay. These people are often nefarious in their own right and have usually been involved in crimes of dishonesty. You know, the perfect type of person you'd want to be a witness against you – nothing to lose and everything to gain by framing you. These people are known as Confidential Informants (CIs) or Confidential Human Sources, and in Cox's case there were two main CIs: Gerald “JR” Olson and William “Bill” Fulton.
Gerald Olson
Gerald "JR" Olson
Gerald Olson
Gerald "JR" Olson

Olson is a serial criminal who first ran drugs as a trucker then later took advantage of people as a contractor. According to the Alaska Dispatch, “Gerald R. Olson, known as "J.R." and as "Jerry," first made headlines in 2005 when he was convicted for illegally installing septic systems in Peters Creek and Wasilla, most of which never worked. By fall 2009, he was again in trouble with the law, accused of stealing a $69,000 construction tractor.” He faced several felonies and tens, if not hundreds of thousands in restitution. It has been reported that his felonies have all been dismissed, and the restitution he faced paid for. Obviously, Olson’s part in allegedly framing Schaeffer Cox benefitted him greatly…
William Fulton
William "Bill" Fulton
Bill Fulton
William "Bill" Fulton

Fulton, otherwise known as “Drop Zone Bill” has been reported as having an illicit affair with FBI agent Sandi Klein, one of the agents working the Cox investigation. In October of 2010, Fulton gained fame when he falsely arrested a reporter while supposedly providing “security” at a campaign event for then U.S. Senate Tea Party candidate Joe Miller. According to witnesses, he made death threat ultimatums to Cox and others when the Cox group refused to act violently. He even admitted to saying, “I am going to slit your f'ing throat and bleed you out at my feet you son of a b....” while holding a knife to the neck of Schaeffer's friend, Les Zerbe, who stood against Fulton saying they had no plan to act violently.

Fulton always claimed he had men and munitions ready to go and that Cox needed to get on board. Fulton made copies of recordings the government asserted did not exist and even recorded conversations with his handlers. He reportedly proved to be such an embarrassment to the government that they didn’t even call him as a witness. It has been reported that Fulton will be releasing a book of his exploits – which purportedly will be full of self-aggrandizing pomposity.

In investigations of this kind, a CI's “handler” – the FBI agent overseeing him/her - sets the plan of attack and determines what type of information is needed to set up, entrap and bring their targeted person down. In other words, they begin the conspiracy. If this wasn’t true and their targeted person had actually already committed a crime, they would simply arrest that person and try them for that crime. Instead, they concoct a scenario and ensure the target complies with their predetermined outcome. Much of it is staged beforehand for the CI, but there are plenty of times a CI has to think on their feet and literally make something up to keep the “investigation” going forward. If an “investigation” failed, so would any hope of payment or court leniency of the CI's charges or convictions. Much of this happened during the Federally condoned set-up of Schaeffer Cox, to the point that the plans that were prescribed to Cox and his co-defendants were, in fact, constructs of the CIs.There were many occasions during the Cox “investigation” where the CIs were told to tone it down, or, as Olson testified to during the trial, that he had been told “quite a bit” by his handler, “to not instigate stuff...” One of the biggest of these “instigations,” and what ultimately led to Cox's conviction, was the “kill 2 for every 1” (2-4-1) plan and it's supposed companion “hit list.”

According to Mike Anderson, a friend of Cox, the “hit list” also referred to as the “target list” was a complete fabrication by the prosecution. Anderson maintains what they claimed as a “hit list” was nothing more than the start of a database of publicly available information. Anderson claims he was the sole person to ever have possession of the database and the only time Cox ever asked him for information from it was when Cox wanted to visit and speak with a state trooper, whom he personally knew. Shortly thereafter, Cox and his wife went to the Trooper's home and spoke with him at length. This act resulted in one of the main charges of an original state case, “conspiracy to commit murder” of that same trooper - which Anderson was also indicted on. Eventually, the conspiracy charges in the state case were dropped because prosecutors could not use the FBI's recordings which were gathered without a search warrant, and there was no other evidence. Anderson was released as he faced no federal charges but was later subpoenaed by the prosecution to testify at Cox's federal trial.

Anderson maintains the database wasn't ever talked about as, or considered a “hit list” of any kind. It was as Cox put it, simply a way of being able to communicate with officials either in person, phone or by mail. Anderson claims that Cox didn't function like a man with a plan when he saw Cox three days before the arrests saying:

“The last time I saw Schaeffer before our kidnappings [arrests], he sat down on the floor and asked me what he should do. He clearly had no plan. I told him to clear up his misdemeanor charge and disband his groups. I was upset with him for the bombastic false statements he publicly made. He had resorted to the state's tool of deception.”

As for the trial, Anderson asserts that he was waiting for more questions from the defense counsel during cross-examination, which ultimately never came. Anderson says he never got the chance to fully explain to the jury what the database was and how it had nothing to do with anything called “2-4-1”. Anderson denies having ever heard of 2-4-1 until he was in jail along with Cox. For his failure to clarify that there was never a list or a plan, Anderson believes Cox's attorney, Nelson Traverso, completely mishandled Cox's case to the point where Cox should have a wonderful Ineffective Assistance of Counsel appeal.

As for the 2-4-1 plan itself, which greatly contributed to the conviction of Cox, and made infamous by AUSA Skrocki, recent information has surfaced regarding the origins of the plan, and it didn't come from Schaeffer Cox. It was a plan used as a “war of words” during the Freeman Ranch standoff in Montana, years earlier in 1996. It was there that [CI] Gerald Olson, a young man, would first hear this rhetoric, only to use it these many years later and attribute it to Schaeffer Cox.

According to Norm Olson, co-founder of Alaska Citizens Militia and who, in 1996, was in Montana to support the Freeman in their 81-day stand-off with the FBI, “I first met [CI] Gerald Olson [no relation] during the Montana Freeman Standoff. We used 2-4-1; 3-4-1; 4-4-1 as a propaganda tool because we were facing another Waco-like situation. The only way we felt we could stop the federal forces was to threaten them with retaliation, with reprisal, with retribution. And they didn't attack that ranch.”

This proves that CI Olson, who used this rhetoric before, pushed his own preemptive agenda as though it was Cox’s plan. Cox had never heard, let alone used this language before! I wonder how the jury would have reacted had they been informed of that dirty little secret?

On February 19th, 2011 – 5 days after a bench warrant was issued for Schaeffer Cox when he did not show up for a misdemeanor hearing on a state issue, a marathon six-hour meeting between Cox and others ensued where CI Olson again pushed the 2-4-1 plan, while he clandestinely recorded the entire meeting, yet the jury never got to hear the portion where Schaeffer Cox summarily rejected the idea of 2-4-1 saying:

“I’m not motivated by wanting to see their heads roll. I’m motivated by wanting my family to live free and prosperous and happy.

"And with what you [CI Olson] were talking about for the 2-4-1 and stuff like that … or any sort of very aggressive, offensive maneuver … seems like to me, given the circumstances, that that would be more along the lines of looking for a fight rather than strategically and prudently waging a war … at least right now, and I can't speak to the future. But I can say that I think for right now, a 2-4-1 is -- is -- would -- would be running out ahead of the scale and sacrificing our self to no avail.

"I lost my house, my business, my whole fortune... And I could, if I was looking for a fight and I was feeling vengeful, which what’s wrong with feeling vengeful, man? We’ve been wronged. I could go out and I could sock it to them, and that would satisfy my animalistic reaction ... But it would -- it would be a detriment to the war ... Because only when there is no future and there is no hope for my wife and for my children can I then spend myself ... in costing the enemy. Because costing the enemy is not my objective. I would forgive them and have all sorts of redemption and go to a picnic with them if they’d leave me alone. You know, I don't have hatred towards them.”

Definitely not a statement made by a man who allegedly conspired to kill people in cold blood.

AUSA Skrocki tried desperately to shield the government from its practice of entrapment during his closing arguments, talking about how the government didn't do this, the paid informant witnesses didn't do that; the bottom-line is, it was a conspiracy that first and always involved Fulton and Olson, the government CIs, not Schaeffer Cox. It was their conspiracy and they continually pushed it on Cox and his friends. And, without any question whatsoever, they were instructed to do so by the Department of Justice!

If there is any question the government acted to entrap Schaeffer Cox, you only have to refer to their own determination as to what entrapment is. According to the Offices of the United States Attorneys:

Entrapment is a complete defense to a criminal charge, on the theory that "Government agents may not originate a criminal design, implant in an innocent person's mind the disposition to commit a criminal act, and then induce commission of the crime so that the Government may prosecute." Jacobson v. United States, 503 U.S. 540, 548 (1992). A valid entrapment defense has two related elements: (1) government inducement of the crime, and (2) the defendant's lack of predisposition to engage in the criminal conduct.Mathews v. United States, 485 U.S. 58, 63 (1988). Of the two elements, predisposition is by far the more important.

Cox did not have the predisposition to engage in the violence the government claims. The facts are indisputable. When pressed to act violently by the government's CIs, he always sided with his moral compass, and never agreed to it.

Let's face it, rhetoric drives society. It builds victors and villains based solely upon the political interpretation of that speech – the stance of the day carries with it the full force of “justice.” But when does protected speech become an actionable offense? When do our spoken thoughts become crimes?

When the government says it does, as was evident in the Cox case - and the jury bought it.

Bottom line, Cox's speeches, not his actions, garnered the attention of the FBI - that is a fact. If his words didn't cause them any alarm, as Skrocki tried to allude to in his closing arguments at trial, Cox would have never been at the center of an investigation to begin with. Cox's case really was about the government stifling his 1st Amendment rights.

There was never a plan to initiate violence, as stated over and over as Cox continually would say things like, “we're not doing a Rambo, we're pulling a Gandhi.” The only times Cox stated violence were in reference to moments where it would be defensive in nature, requiring an outside action for them to be actionable. As an example, “if someone pulls a gun on me, I'm going to kill them.” It is a statement that does not suggest you are planning on murdering people. It requires an action for you to take action. Also, we've all said something like, “I'll kill him if he does ____.” Did you mean it, that you'd actually kill this person? Of course not. If everyone who used this type of language was put in prison, there would be no one left who was free! Even if you are a gun owner, or have a knife in your kitchen drawer when you make an outlandish statement like this, does that make your verbalization a real tangible threat? Not hardly, unless of course a deceitful and dangerous prosecutor learns of it.

Also, ask yourself: how far would you go to protect your family? Would it be fair to assume you would say you'd kill to keep them safe? Now imagine if after you said you would, out loud to a friend, you were arrested and convicted of conspiracy to commit murder... That is just about how outlandish the case against Schaeffer Cox was.

The fact is, the jury didn't hear the majority of the audio recordings in Cox's case. They only heard a few cherry-picked moments that painted him in a bad light. They never got to listen to the threats Cox faced by Fulton and others if he didn't go along with their plans. Nor did the jury get to read the emails sent by FBI Special Agent Sutherland that assessed Cox as not being a threat.

The jury also never heard that the conspiracy charges weren't in the initial indictment against Cox and that the Government had offered Cox a deal on much lesser charges.

“Had I known then what I know now, I would have accepted a plea deal on one or two of the minor weapons charges, which is what the government tried to get me to do. This would have avoided the conspiracy and solicitation to murder counts altogether.” writes Cox for the website freeschaeffercox.com.

For the prosecution to prove the conspiracy, however, the jury had to be convinced that Cox wanted to kill someone, sometime in the future, without any real, non-hypothetical specifics.

A non-specific threat was exactly what the Skrocki prosecution deceitfully and successfully sold to the jury by disallowing a vast majority of its own recordings from being heard, and reports written by its own investigating special agents from being read. They kept the truth from the jury; the truth that Schaeffer Cox had been recorded wanting to leave Alaska with his family and keep away from Bill Fulton; not wage war or randomly kill people as they asserted, as the below FBI dispatch confirms:

FBI Dispatch Friday, March 04, 2011 5:33:00 PM
SC [Schaeffer Cox] is not willing to meet with CHS-2 [Fulton]. Does not want him [Fulton] to know he is still in Fairbanks. Wants CHS-I [Olson] to broker deal. SC willing to meet ‘trucker’ to discuss transport.
--Special Agent Rick Sutherland

So much information was withheld from the jury that US~Observer is creating an extensive on-line-only article outlining all of the evidence. In the near future, look for “The Conspiracy to Entrap Schaeffer Cox."

“At my trial, the prosecution just told a scary story about what I might have done some day if they hadn't 'taken me out.' Then they tried to block the jury from seeing the truth about what I ACTUALLY DID DO in real life, i.e. told the agent provocateurs 'NO,' then packed up my family to move out of the country to get away from the coercive CIs and their death threat ultimatums.” – Schaeffer Cox

Let's face it, pre-crime or “thought crime” has become punishable by imprisonment in this “modern” America where every expression is steeped in, what a psychiatrist coined in 1970 as, microaggressions. The government is now able to determine who and what should be targeted just by the words and expressions people use, as evidenced by the Schaeffer Cox case and so many others that follow this cookie-cutter strategy of; create the crime, provide the contrived motivation, supply the tools, arrest, feed the jury full of deception and then send your target to a prison cell. So, look out Facebook users, your words just might hurt you because it all starts there!

Over the last several years there has been a surge of government distrust, especially of the police. In this day and age of ready video recording devices (smartphones), the police are under constant scrutiny of their actions. What these countless hours of video have shown is that the system as a whole is broken. Not all police are bad, true, many are outstanding, but even if you are a good cop and the system is rotten, how long does it take before the system taints what you do? Bottom line, the US Justice System no longer functions to dispense justice, rather it is designed to fine and incarcerate – kill if need be. The perception of your safety is all that matters.

Fortunately for Schaeffer Cox, the blinders are coming off and the truth can finally be seen for what it was; the government conspiring to entrap a young, idealistic, charismatic, patriot who believed that he had a right to stand up to their overreach.

It's time to call them out and hold them accountable. It's time to bring Schaeffer Cox home.

Karen Loeffler is the US Attorney for the District of Alaska and ultimately responsible for Schaeffer Cox's incarceration. It was under her watch that this travesty took place, and it should fall on her to rectify it. Call her office at (907) 271-5071. You can also email her at Karen.Loeffler@usdoj.gov.

Editor's Note: The US~Observer has been vigorously investigating the Schaeffer Cox case. There are hundreds of hours of audio, video and documentation that show Schaeffer Cox only ever spoke in a defensive manner, especially regarding his family. Cox was quite literally being hunted by the government for imprisonment, and he knew they were investigating him! Let that sink in. Why would he attempt a plan that is not only foolish, it would never have changed anything and only harmed the lives of the one's he loved. If anything can be said about Schaeffer Cox, it can be said that he isn't stupid.

The fact is, the jury in the Cox case was completely deceived by a prosecutor who twisted the manufactured “evidence” he cunningly fed to that naïve jury, just as he and others had done in other cases such as the infamous Operation Polar Pen convictions which were ultimately thrown out or vacated like Senator Ted Stevens'. Furthermore, Cox had absolute ineffective assistance of counsel, and the corrupted court condoned this complete mockery of justice!

Should you have any information regarding the Schaeffer Cox case, contact us immediately. We are especially interested in anyone who had dealings with Gerald “JR” Olson especially if Olson paid you restitution and/or Drop Zone owner Bill Fulton. If you were a juror in this case and you now see that you were deceived, please contact us immediately by calling 541-474-7885 or by email at editor@usobserver.com.

* Please read “CMUs: The Federal Prison System’s Experiment in Social Isolation" for a better understanding of what a CMU is and what Cox has had to endure. Cox was released into the general population at the beginning of March 2016, and is no longer in the CMU.

Article of interest: Entrapment Approved by Appeals Court

UPDATE 3/29/16 - William Fulton, one of the CIs in the Schaeffer Cox case, referenced the US~Observer on Twitter saying, "these guys dint interview anybody from the other side they are biased and ill informed."

The US~Observer retorted with, "Interesting how you didn't claim that it wasn't true. We had your words already - on the record, and recorded."

Since this initial exchange, Fulton has continued his tirade on Twitter trying to protect his "legacy" and make claims that the volumes of recordings are somehow flawed, and that his recollection and word is more accurate than what is already on the record.

We now have United States Attorney Karen Loeffler's email address: Karen.Loeffler@usdoj.gov. Please contact her and let her know she needs to personally look into the Schaeffer Cox case and right the injustice.

Sign this petition to free Schaeffer Cox. A very nice lady keeps creating these White house petitions. She never gets anywhere close to the 100,000 signatures needed she usually gets about a dozen or so - but, bless her heart, she doesn't know the meaning of giving up.

Let's give her a hand. Follow the link to sign her latest petition. And if you're still on Facebook, like her Facebook page, "Signers of Petitions for Political Prisoners."

Maybe, if we all sign her petition and get everyone we know to do the same, we'll accomplish something. It sure can't hurt. Schaeffer Cox has been in prison for far too long. Let's be like Margaret, and never give up.

Onward and upward,
