I am sure that's scaredy talk and the sentence guidelines are considerably lower. What's worse, the people saying that shit do know better.

Something to note however, if they give any of these guys Leonard Peltier type prison sentences and expect the next standoff to be either bloodless or just one sided bloodless, that could change things, maybe. We saw how they threw long ugly sentences at Ed and Elaine Brown along with some of their supporters and that didn't seem to convince anyone how serious this shit gets. I noticed how Randy Weaver was not showing up to any more standoffs after that either.

Freedom of the Press #12
Fully Biased Instigators


Gary Hunt,
Outpost of Freedom
March 13, 2017

When I was in the Army, I had to obey the orders that were given to me, by my superiors. That obligation ceased nearly fifty years ago.

Since that time, I have only taken “orders” from my employer or supervisor, though I have given “orders” to subordinates, as a part of my supervisory responsibilities in various positions I have held.

I have also given “orders” for food or other purchases, as I don’t expect waitresses or clerks to be mind readers.

In all of the above instances, there has been a relationship predicated on the fact that there was some implied obligation by virtue of the relationship, fiduciary or voluntary, between the “orderer” and the “orderee“. Yes, I made those two words up, but I suppose that all reading this will get the point being made.

This tribulation began when the U. S. Department of Justice “Demanded” that I Cease and Desist publishing a series of articles exposing informants, both inside and outside of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge during the occupation by those seeking a “Redress of Grievances” (First Amendment). The Letter also wanted me to return information that I had obtained without any illegal act on my part. And, in a somewhat ridiculous (impossible) Demand, that I remove the articles from my website “and any other website”.

However, I have no more control over “any other website” than the Justice Department has over me.

An FBI agent delivered the Letter. I asked the agent what obliged me to recognize the authority of the Letter. He said that he did not know. (See Freedom of the Press #1 – Meeting with the FBI)

Since that time, the Court has “Ordered” me to do things that I didn’t want to do. I have refused service on two of them; the second (middle) one was never even offered to me to be refused. In each instance, I have asked for some law that I violated or how I came under the jurisdiction of the Court in Portland, Oregon. I have yet to receive a qualified answer thereto.

Now, I say “qualified answer”, in that the US Shysters have included case law in their Motions, though when I researched those cases submitted, I found that those cases really supported my position, not the government’s position.

The government is using the Court as a forum, while I cannot do so, since I would be submitting to the Court’s jurisdiction. So, my recourse is to use the “Court of Public Opinion”. The government has introduced articles from both the “Burns Chronicles” and “Freedom of the Press” series into the Court Record. As I have pointed out, one cannot submit a page of a book into the record without submitting the whole book. The articles are nothing less than pages of a book, and must be taken as a whole. This is especially true with “Freedom of the Press”, as it is chapters in an ongoing story — recorded as that story plays out.

The government has set forth arguments, made assertions, and have otherwise provided “papers” to the Court which represent that I am subject to jurisdiction. However, each of those assertions has been disproven in my responses. So, though they began by using my articles in an effort to defame me, and have selectively chosen what “evidence” they want in the Record, the government has been remarkably consistent in ignoring content that disputes those claims.

On Friday, March 10, 2017, the government filed “Government’s Status Report Regarding Order to Show Cause” (Report), asking that the Court “issue a warrant for his arrest to be served by the United States Marshal.” In support of that Report, they also filed the “Affidavit of FBI Special Agent Jason P. Kruger in Support of Government’s Status Report Regarding Order to Show Cause” (Affidavit). This article is my response to which can only be seen as a demonstration of the incompetence of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The first section of the Report is titled “The Government Has Established by Clear and Convincing Evidence That Gary Hunt Is Violating This Court’s Lawful and Direct Orders“. So, let’s look at some of that “clear and convincing evidence”. (Emphasis, mine.)



They do make a statement that the reports from which I obtained my information (Form 1023) “were provided in discovery to the 26 defendants being prosecuted in United States v. Bundy, et al.” We clearly see that some of the people in the US Shyster’s office and some in the Court were also provided copies of those reports. However, they tend to be suggestive (subjective) rather than objective (what should be “the whole truth”), they conveniently omit any source that may have provided the information to me. Obviously, to do so would not fit their narrative.

Then, regarding the Cease and Desist Letter of January 5, 2017, they state, “The letter requested Hunt to cease and desist from publicly disseminating the material. The letter also directed Hunt to remove the protected material from his website.” Well, close, but no prize. For example, the Letter said, “you must immediately, cease and desist”. Not quite a request, rather, a demand. When they said that it must be removed from my website, they conveniently omitted “or any other website”. The former would be a rather simple task; the latter, clearly impossible.

In referring to a comment made on Facebook, by Duane Ehmer, one of the defendants, they repeat that Duane has said, back on February 5, 2017, that in response to a question, he replied, “He is working with our lawyers”. As I have pointed out, previously, the answer was posted 17 minutes before the question, “Who is Gary Hunt?”, was asked. However, now there is more to this “Clear and Convincing Evidence”. We will get to that, shortly.

Then, in referring to the Affidavit, they finally get something right when they state:

“On March 2, 2017, Hunt was interviewed on an internet-based radio talk show at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/longlivetherepublic/2017/02/10/we-the-people. The radio show lasts for two hours and forty-nine seconds. During the radio show Hunt discussed the protected material and named seven people he alleged to be FBI CHSs. During the course of the radio show, Hunt stated that he does not recognize the Court’s jurisdiction, nor does he intend to comply with the Court’s Protective Order. Hunt stated he would not make an appearance as directed by the Order to Show Cause, because if he does he would have ‘submitted himself to the jurisdiction of the Court and I ain’t gonna do that.'”

Well, it is mostly correct. However, I seldom refer to myself as “himself”. Sounds more like those gender identity people, “today, I am himself. Tomorrow I will be herself.”

The Report concludes with the following:

The government has presented unrefuted clear and convincing evidence through sworn Affidavits of Special Agent Walker and Special Agent Kruger that prove Hunt is continuing to violate this Court’s Orders.

Accordingly, at the March 10, 2017, hearing the United States will ask this Court to find that there is clear and convincing evidence that third-party Hunt should be held in civil contempt and issue a warrant for his arrest to be served by the United States Marshal.

I suppose that they have taken a concept from history, that if you repeat something often enough, some will accept it as the truth. That then, should make everything valid evidence, regardless of the truthfulness of it.

You will note that two Special Agents were named. “Walker”, being Ronnie Walker that filed the two previous affidavits, and Jason P. Kruger, who filed this Affidavit. It is only the current Affidavit that we will now discuss.

After giving his qualification, Kruger states:

8. On March 9, 2016, Judge Brown entered an Interim Protective Order, court record #288, which stated that defense counsel may provide copies of discovery only to individuals further described in the Order.

9. On March 24, 2016, Judge Brown entered the final Protective Order, court record #342, which stated defense counsel may provide copies of discovery only to: 1) the defendants in this case; 2) persons employed by the attorney of record who are necessary to assist counsel of record in preparation for trial or other proceedings in this case; and 3) persons who defense counsel deems necessary to further legitimate investigations and preparations of this case.

Now, the government is contending that I “aided and abetted” someone, though the have yet to identify just who it was that I “aided and abetted”. However, with that in mind, it would appear that they are trying to project me into those who are identified there, probably in the third listed identifications. Thus, it becomes extremely important for the government to rely upon the statement made by Duane Ehmer, on Facebook.

Now, I have written a number of articles in the two series, “Burns Chronicles” and “Freedom of the Press” There is no doubt that the shysters are reading the articles, since they have referred to them numerous times in their numerous submissions to the Court, endeavoring to create an illusion that I am what they are trying to make me out to be.

So, let’s look at what Ehmer has to say, now. He has been given permission by his attorney to clarify his statement, as explained in this posting made on Sunday, March 12, 2017, at about 10:23 am PDT.

 -

However, as George Washington said in a letter to Charles Thruston:
“Truth will ultimately prevail where pains is taken to bring it to light.”

However, the government and FBI, having repeated their claim as to the significance of a Facebook post so often, we could expect that the Judge will buy their lie, instead of the truth.

The Affidavit also provides a number of quotes from the radio show of March 2. I suppose they want to demonstrate what to them might appear to be belligerence on my part. From my point of view, I am simply stating a fact, that I am not subject to the Court’s jurisdiction, in this current matter, and that I will not be duped into submitting to that jurisdiction by making any appearance.

This is one of the quoted portions of the show:

They’ve had the cease and desist letter and three orders now, and I’m supposed to, by tomorrow, respond in court to them. Then the government has until the 8th of March to respond to what I file with the court. Then on the 10th I’m supposed to appear there for a show cause hearing, to show cause why I shouldn’t be held in contempt of court. But they’re going to be really nice, because they said, ‘Well you can call in and make a phone appearance.’ But if I make an appearance then I have submitted myself to the jurisdiction of the Court and I ain’t gonna do that. Because if I did then they are going to be able to grab me.”

And, that is truthful.

However, while we are discussing the FBI, let’s look a bit into their investigative skills. These are the people that, in a two month period were able to produce a Criminal Complaint charging 26 people with felony crimes. In the next eight months, they were able to put together a case that went to trial, resulting in the acquittal of the Group 1 defendants. However, in over a year, they have been unable to figure out which FBI HRT team members fired two shots on January 26, 2016, and then covered up the fact that they fired those shots. Those two shots were, without a doubt, part and parcel to the murder of LaVoy Finicum, on that date. A real crime, not the manufactured appearance of a crime.

By the Affidavit, we see that they have, through specialized use of their superior investigative skills, found a Facebook post and a radio show. That is all the evidence they have provided to create that which isn’t. They have not interviewed me, though I have explained my position to Special Agent Catalano, as was well explained in a few of the “Freedom of the Press” articles. They haven’t incorporated what I have stated, regarding both case law and factual arguments, along with any other material that should be considered in an objective investigation. After all, it would prove “exculpatory” in the current situation.

Instead, we can see that truth is not the objective of the government. An objective investigation would provide all of the truth, not just those meager pieces made of “whole cloth”, by what Walker and Kruger have put together in an effort to, and I will say it, loud and clear, frame me.

I can understand the US Shysters, seeing this as adversarial, want to “find dirt”, to justify the exclusion of facts that don’t suit their objective. Heck, we have seen that through the last two Malheur trials — every effort to exclude that which might dispute, or interfere with, their desire for a conviction, or in my case, to be incarcerate for “contempt of court”.

The FBI, however, is not a private tool of the US Shysters. It is supposed to be a part of a functional government, whose purpose is to serve its creator, the People. When those powers become so misdirected, as they have in this instance, we can easily see that the government has decided to serve itself, not the People — that, in fact, we have become subject to a police state, every bit the same as the old U.S.S.R., East Germany, and Hitler’s Third Reich.

My guess is that even the decision makers in control in California figure this might as well just all go public.

These people wanted guys to show up for for war and then fight for peace on enemy terms.

My take on it is they might as well let the "leaks" continue, but I do NOT agree with the predominant analysis on a lot of this.

I'm hearing (on Facebook, so take it for what it's worth) that Gary Hunt has just been arrested. Can anyone shed some light on this?

I wondered when Braun would send in the Gestapo.

Everywhere you look there is an all out attempt to censor and silence the independent media.

I haven't heard what the charges are yet, but I consider it confirmed that he was arrested.

quote:
...He was just arrested and I was first notified by his team at 12:51pm today.

His team is keeping me updated. It is confirmed now that Maxine Bernstein is digging up related charges, etc and with that I expect she will provide us additional journalist details.

As Gary is a well connected journalist, one that protects his sources, one that has reported with significant truthful and adequate articulation, one that stood on principle, many will see this for what it is, just like Peter Thomas Santilli....a way to silence the truth from courageous and elevated voices deeply concerned with regards to all forms of government injustice, misconduct and over reach.

California man who refused to remove blog posts outing FBI informants arrested

quote:
Federal authorities have arrested California resident Gary Hunt after he failed to show up in U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown's courtroom this month to explain why he shouldn't be held in civil contempt for not removing from his blog information about informants the FBI used in its investigation of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

Hunt, taken into custody in northern California Thursday on a warrant issued by Brown, is expected to be transferred to federal court in Oregon soon to attend what's called a show cause hearing before the judge.


The judge, in an order unsealed after Hunt's arrest, wrote that it was "necessary to issue a warrant for Hunt's arrest in order to bring him before this Court for his failure to appear at the show-cause hearing and to adjudicate civil contempt hearings'' as to the government's allegations that he violated a court's protective order.

The presence of nine informants on the eastern Oregon refuge during the 41-day occupation last winter as well as six other informants who worked on the case for the FBI was revealed during testimony during the first trial of occupation leaders.

Hunt, according to prosecutors, apparently got hold of the FBI reports on the confidential informants that prosecutors gave to defense attorneys as part of their sharing of discovery evidence before trial. The court ordered the reports not be shared with others.

Occupation leader Ammon Bundy and six others were acquitted of conspiracy and other charges after a five-week trial that ended Oct. 27. Eleven have pleaded guilty to felony charges, and another three have pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor trespass charge. Four other defendants were convicted of felony and misdemeanor charges after a recent 10-day jury trial, followed by a bench trial before Brown.

Hunt was a member of the advisory board for Operation Mutual Defense, a network of militias and supporters founded by Ryan Payne, one of the refuge occupation's organizers. The board was involved in early talks on how to help Harney County ranchers Dwight Hammond Jr. and son Steven Hammond, who were scheduled to return to federal prison on Jan. 4, 2016, for setting fire to public land. Bundy and others frequently cited protest over the Hammonds' treatment by the federal government as one of the reasons for seizing the refuge on Jan2.

The advisory board ultimately voted not to support any action in Burns without the Hammond family's invitation. But Hunt ended up visiting the refuge during the takeover. He went to Burns on Jan. 24, checked into the Silver Spur Motel and drove out to the refuge. On the evening of Jan. 26 after state police shot and killed occupation spokesman Robert "LaVoy" Finicum at a roadblock, Hunt put out a call for supporters to go to the refuge, but retracted it by the next day, he said.

Hunt, who lives in Northern California, has argued that the court's protective order didn't apply to him since he was never one of the defendants in the federal conspiracy case. He also argued that since his blog has been shared by others, it would be nearly impossible to remove all the material he's posted from the Internet.

Hunt also contends that since the federal government identified one of the informants during the first trial, Mark McConnell, any privilege of confidentiality masking the other informants' names is lost.


"There was no objection when the government exposed Mark McConnell. There was no objection when Terri Linnell exposed her role as an informant. There was no objection when the diligence of the defense exposed Fabio Minoggio,'' Hunt wrote in one of his online articles. "For, at that instant in time, as each was exposed, the informants privilege ceased to exist.''

In his blog called "Burns Chronicles'' on his Outpost of Freedom website, Hunt has quoted from FBI reports on the agency's 15 informants during the occupation. The 130 reports, spanning 246 pages, were subject to a protective order, and each page contains the printed words, "Dissemination limited by court order,'' FBI agent Ronnie Walker wrote in an affidavit attached to one of the prosecutors' court filing.

The judge granted prosecutors' request for an arrest warrant on March 10, when Hunt was ordered to come before Brown to be heard and didn't show or contact the court. The judge kept the order sealed until Hunt was taken into custody.

"Throughout this case and in the factually-related matters that took place in Bunkerville, Nevada, in April 2014 that are the subject of ongoing criminal proceedings in the District of Nevada, there have been instances of individuals avoiding the execution of court orders and/or arrest by engaging in armed confrontations with law enforcement. The Court issues under seal this Order and the warrant for Hunt's arrest in an effort to permit the orderly execution of the arrest warrant,'' Brown wrote.

No date has been set yet for a hearing in federal court in Oregon.

I just got back from some confusing face to face meetings. Not sure if it's a good thing or bad thing.

Some very real folks were off the program and critical of the Malheur operation for different reasons. Not thinking highly of the Hammonds but while I sort of get the poaching angle, I don't get the cause for pulling them back for the higher sentence and have enough personal experience with the whole "why OJ got convicted" program.

What I start to see is highly funded sophisticated stuff that's patterned like its for freedom related stuff, but it all has some discreet traps which funnel things certain ways.

[URGENT] LIBERTY OF THE PRESS IS STILL UNDER ATTACK: Federal Marshals Arrest a Journalist

March 31, 2017

Please Share & Re-Post on Your Blogs

By: Kyle Rearden

March 30th, 2017

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should be not highly rated.”

– Thomas Paine





It has come to our attention that there has been a development regarding the prosecution (persecution) of journalist Gary Hunt. This past January, the documented use of lawfare was proven through judicial transparency thanks to the release of court documents. These documents show that United States Attorney Pamala Holsinger tried to convince Judge Anna Brown that Hunt was in possession of what she considered to be contraband, which was actually discovery evidence.

Since then, Hunt has been visited by FBI Special Agent Matthew Catalano multiple times, as documented in his Freedom of the Press article series. During these face-to-face meetings, Agent Catalano and Hunt enjoyed polite discussions as Hunt refused service of the court order demanding his appearance in the federal Oregon District Court. Hunt explained to Agent Catalano that he did not think this order applies to him.

The latest development is that as of today on March 30th of 2017, at approximately 12:30 pm PST, Gary Hunt was arrested by federal marshals at his home in Los Molinos, California. He was reported to have been transported to Sacramento, yet his extradition to Oregon is still under question. According to the Sealed Order Granting Government’s Request for Arrest Warrant as to Gary Hunt & Order Sealing Arrest Warrant, which was filed back on March 10th:



“On March 10, 2017, at 1:00 p.m., the Court convened the show-cause hearing, but Hunt failed to appear for that hearing, did not make a filing as directed, and has not otherwise contracted the Court. The Court, therefore finds it necessary to issue a warrant for Hunt’s arrest in order to bring him before this Court for his failure to appear at the show-cause hearing and to adjudicate civil contempt proceedings for violation of the Court’s Protective Order (#342) and Supplement to Protective Order (#1692). On this record, therefore, the Court GRANTS the government’s request for an arrest warrant as to Gary Hunt, and the Court will issue the warrant without delay.”



Notice that although Judge Brown signed this arrest warrant back on the 10th, it wasn’t executed until today on the 30th. Were the marshals backlogged with all the fugitives they’ve been hunting, or were they spending almost two weeks scouting Los Molinos in order to prevent a journalist from escaping their clutches?

Gary Hunt has been spending the truth about the corruption within the American governance structure for almost 30 years. An attack on any member of the free press is an attack on the entire free press. If this is the treatment that journalists can expect from exposing informants who may very well have contributed to the death of LaVoy Finicum and certainly to the persecution and convictions of many of the individuals who took part in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge event.

I'm not one to toot our own horn, but hat's off to ConSigCor for posting Hunt's articles here. The reason the government hasn't closed down Gary Hunt's website is because it's already all over the internet. Good job, boss! [Wink]

Which means he was given plenty of warning to go underground and either didn't do it or couldn't do it.

Believe me, the fuckups and selfish power tripping are legion.

There was a whole network of long term contingency hideouts and resources established during the Cold War for these types of situations, but most I come into contact with are either in shambles or a trap.

I can look in the areas and exploring around find obvious examples and evidence of other people and organizations well outfitted retreats. Our people obviously don't have much of that, and when attempting to establish it get attacked,

The other thing I ran into is these situations where the people who established the stuff aged out and instead of formally passing responsibility to the organizations that continue the work in some way, it just becomes the family private ranch and rent farm.

Gary's been around since Waco and Ruby Ridge. He knows full well how dirty those people are. But, hiding ain't his style. He'll meet Anna head on, ready to go toe to toe. On Constitutional issues he could make her look like an ignorant retard...and that's one reason I'd bet she puts a muzzle all over him.

Yeah sure, I beat the best of them in a fair courtroom fight and lived nowhere near Portland when the Feds rolled me up. Anna don't do fair courtroom fights. Hell, even when I got out of prison she hit me with this big elaborate set of "new probation conditions" which made it impossible for me to make a living, especially during that economic downturn.

Don't forget, I was the guy in a high profile touchy self defense shooting back several decades ago who had my people to go ahead and not spend the money on Massad Ayoob, just let me do my thing and let the pros watch. I practically wrote the playbook in that few days in the courtroom.

I couldn't fight a damn thing in her court. Getting constantly interfered with by jail staff and obvious agents in the jail. If I left my cell, I was always In danger of them going in and scattering my legal paperwork as they searched it. Then phone restrictions and bad lawyers, crappy law library access, and I heard the law libraries I had access to were the best in the state because they were "federally compliant". Not sure how much that matters when they just kill your witnesses and threaten your family along with ignoring court motions anyway.

The other inmates even said they never saw it quite like that on any single person except the occasional gang leader, and to them I was nobody, not a recognized gang leader so it made no sense to them. Then more recently on the Malheur trial, when I saw the video of the defense attorney getting beat down in the courtroom.

I have heard the stuff about how some of this was supposed to just draw out and expose the "secret patriots". Nah, a bunch of those guys just retired in place. The assets and resources they were stewards over just squandered, exploited, sometimes in disrepair because nobody wanted to put up with their shit and just left. The other complaint being that people didn't want to make permanent investment in real estate that they could lose access to. Heck, I fully understand that part. If you have people paying rent for 20 years and then facing eviction from a deteriorating craphole, then it begs the question: where did the rent money go?

Reality, the things never were community. They were shabby rent farms.

I am being prevented that face to face with Strat, so I have had to stumble around connecting dots on some stuff. Not liking what I am seeing recently, not at all. I am not supposed to have to deal with a bunch of hostile evasive self serving bullshit out of people. Not to mention government control freaks.

"Outpost of Freedom" is still up for me. So is his Facebook page, but no one ha added anything new for a couple days now. I'm assuming he's going to fight extradition to Oregon.

Is he currently in a California jail then?

Usually a federal detainee doesn't have any choice when it comes to diesel therapy, but in a case like his, they might spring for a special van ride or even a special flight if he is a high profile detainee that someone might try orchestrating a rescue over, especially with the strong connections to tactically ambitious and competent operators.

Don't know where he's at. Person will probably have to follow some of the Bundy supporters to find out.

Journalist Arrested For Defense of First Amendment

by Shari Dovale

Gary Hunt has been keeping Americans informed of Constitutional violations by the government for over 20 years. He has reported on the Ruby Ridge massacre as well as the Waco Siege.

More recently, Hunt has released information pertaining to Confidential Human Sources (aka Informants) in the Bunkerville Standoff and the Malheur Refuge Protest.

It was revealed during the first trial of the Malheur defendants that the FBI use of informants were extensive and, possibly, illegal. This is based on the informants being involved with the leadership of the protest, in charge of security, training with firearms, and more.

However, the court, specifically Judge Anna Brown, ruled that the names of the informants were not to be made public by the defense. The defense, through their investigative skills, determined the names of some of the informants, such as Fabio Minoggio (aka John Killman).

The prosecution was forced to turn over their documents, of which they redacted the identifying information. The court then ordered the involved parties to not share this information, so as to keep the identities of the informants secret.

However, it did not include other members of the public, such as a journalist, if they somehow obtained copies of the reports.

Hunt, through his investigative skills, obtained copies of (presumably) all the 1023 reports (CHS reporting documents). He then went through them and identified many more informants. After confirming these identities, he published the information, which has been picked up by many outlets including Redoubt News.

The court has decided that this reporting is against their orders. Judge Brown ordered Hunt to take down all materials and information pertaining to the informants from his website. Hunt refused and distinctly laid out his arguments, publicly posted under the series “Freedom of the Press.”

Though Hunt is clearly not a party to the case, and has protections under the first amendment, the court has ordered Hunt to be arrested on contempt of court charges and brought to Oregon and her jurisdiction. It is thought that the court is considering adding ‘aiding and abetting’ charges as well.

Judge Brown has kept the arrest warrant close to the vest as she apparently was afraid of the word getting out to Hunt’s supporters. It does not seem likely that she was concerned Hunt could be considered a flight risk as he has already stated that he was ready for this legal argument.

quote:
JWR’s Comment: We’ve mentioned Gary Hunt’s web site in SurvivalBlog in the past. I hope that readers took my advice and saved the content of those pages before they came under a Federal gag order. It was Hunt who named the large number of paid Federal informants that had infiltrated themselves into the Bundy protest group. And these men, we learned, were not just informants. Many of them were in actuality Agent Provocateurs who actively pushed the group to take illegal actions. Federal Judge Anna Brown apparently felt that Gary Hunt publishing that information constituted a threat—not a threat to a safety of the Federal agents but rather a threat by exposing the FBI’s 21st Century modus operandi. (Of the 22 “holdouts” at the Malheur Refuge, seven of them were paid Federal informants!) Hunt’s arrest is a bad precedent, as it indicates that the Federal courts have no respect for the First Amendment—at least not when it comes to journalists who expose Federal perfidy.

From Gary Hunt:

quote:
I am finally back home from having spent just over one week in the Sacramento County Jail.

I want to thank all who have supported me throughout this ordeal, whether with financial support, open support on Social Media, and those who prayed for a good outcome. Through extremely limited communications, I was still able to find out some of what was going on outside of the jail walls.

Currently, the ground is still held with regard to the matter of the jurisdiction of the Court over my articles. A hearing is scheduled for May 9, in Portland. It has been stipulated to, that my appearance at that hearing is not an admission of jurisdiction -- it is simply to decide whether, or not, there was jurisdiction. If it is determined that there was jurisdiction (which I doubt), then a Show Cause hearing will be held at a future date.

I will be writing a number of articles, some prior to that first hearing. Others will be written after that hearing, to include the outcome of that hearing and other matters that I am not at liberty to discuss at this time.

I have held my ground, and will continue to do so. Hopefully, this will be an encouraging lesson to patriots; you can challenge the government and win. With this in mind, it is abundantly clear that:

IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE RIGHT, WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS WRONG.

Judge releases man held in Malheur informants case.

quote:
California resident Gary Hunt, speaking by phone from jail Thursday, promised he would show up to court in Portland to defend his right to publish details about FBI informants involved in the investigation of the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

"I give my word, my bond, my honor that I will appear at a time designated by the court,'' Hunt told U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown. "Believe it or not, I've been looking forward to discussing the issue in your presence.''

The judge responded that she needed more than "his word'' before she approved his release from custody.


Hunt, 71, was arrested last Thursday on a warrant that Brown signed after he skipped a hearing to explain why he shouldn't be held in civil contempt of a court order that demanded he remove his online publications revealing confidential FBI informants who assisted in the investigation of the 41-day refuge occupation.

He has spent the last week in the Sacramento County Jail.

Hunt has argued that he was never a defendant in the federal conspiracy case and that the federal judge in Oregon doesn't have any jurisdiction over him nor does her order demanding he remove his online posts.

Brown advised Hunt on Thursday that he can make what's called a "special appearance'' in court and not waive his challenge to the court's jurisdiction.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Pamala Holsinger objected to the release of Hunt without him signing an appearance bond or posting something to require his appearance.

"Every single court order on this issue he has ignored,'' Holsinger said.

Hunt interjected that he would sign an agreement, but it can't contain the word "defendant.''


"I'm not a defendant in anything. I can't agree to be a defendant,'' he said. " If you strike the word 'defendant,' I'll sign it.''

Brown said Hunt could have avoided jail if he had made his position clear in writing to the court or called the court.

The judge directed the prosecutor and Portland attorney Michael Rose, assigned to represent Hunt, to craft some type of written agreement for Hunt to sign, with "an enforceable promise he'll appear'' before her at 2 p.m. on May 9 to argue if the court has authority over Hunt.

By 4:30 p.m., Hunt had signed a $10,000 "appearance bond,'' and the judge ordered his release. If Hunt doesn't show up in May, he'll forfeit that amount of money.

"I would like to sleep in my own bed for a change,'' Hunt told the judge. "This has been a hardship for me.''


The presence of nine informants sent to the eastern Oregon refuge last year, as well as six others who worked on the case for the FBI, came out during the first trial of occupation leaders.

Hunt, according to prosecutors, apparently got hold of FBI reports on the confidential informants that prosecutors gave to defense attorneys as part of their sharing of evidence before trial. The court ordered the reports not be shared with others.

Hunt was a member of the advisory board for Operation Mutual Defense, a network of militias and supporters founded by Ryan Payne, one of the refuge occupation's organizers.

In a motion to release Hunt, two Oregon assistant federal public defenders described him as a Vietnam veteran and retired professional surveyor with no prior criminal history and long-term ties to his California community. The Federal Public Defender's Office, though, can't represent Hunt going forward because the office already represents a defendant in the refuge takeover case.

Occupation leader Ammon Bundy and six others were acquitted of conspiracy and other charges after a five-week trial that ended Oct. 27. Eleven pleaded guilty to felony charges and another three pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor trespass charge. Four other defendants were convicted of felony and misdemeanor charges after a recent 10-day jury trial, followed by a bench trial before Brown.

It's a trap. Braun is maneuvering Gary into her gestapo kourt where she will declare that he is most certainly within her jurisdiction. I look for all of his constitutional arguments to be declared 'irrelevant and of no bearing to the case at hand'.

Look at the current Bundy trial where another female judge has basically disallowed the accused from calling witnesses or mounting any effective defense.

It's all a rigged game with a predetermined outcome. Just like Strat's case.

That's my feeling too. He's going to have to raise his legal points an appellate court and, given that it's the Ninth Circuit, most likely to the Supreme Court.

We can only say the truth and predict the outcome based on education and experience, then make recommendations on the basis of experience, before we are disregarded and humiliated.

The New American has been running articles on the various land and rancher abuse cases. People just don't really give a shit unless it's a zero risk zero cost option that's guaranteed to win, and zero risk zero cost options are never likely to win.

Sad day in a amerikia,another patriot gets screwed. Rights are pretty much protected if it benefits the courts.
Reality is we the people in the eyes of the system are looked at and treated as property of the state. Nothing more nothing less.
In a democracy it is what is best for the collective, as a whole. Not what is best for the individual as in a republic.

Sojourn to Sacramento

quote:
Gary Hunt,
Outpost of Freedom
April 11, 2017

Introduction

This past Saturday, April 8, I returned home from a week long visit the Sacramento County Jail. I was in jail based upon a Warrant for my arrest for failing to appear at a show cause hearing on March 10. The Warrant and what led up to it will be the subject of a future article.

I am writing this article to explain a system that, quite frankly, ignores our rights, especially when only accused of a crime. It will give a little insight into life behind bars, at least those of the Sacramento County Jail. I can’t say that this compares to the treatment that those currently held in jail in Oregon (Jason Patrick) or Nevada (many still innocent people) are receiving, but, perhaps it will help to understand that they are being treated similarly, or worse.

It will also explain what I have gone through. Now, when I go to Court in Portland, next month, I will be entering the courtroom on the terms that I had to establish. Fortunately, though without a plan going in, the final result is that I achieved a bit more than I could have expected, thanks to Judge Anna Brown.

The Arrest

Around noon on March 30, 2017, a nice, sunny, warm day, here in Los Molinos, California, I received a phone call from FBI Special Agent Catalano. This was the fourth call he had made to me, since back in January when he first provided me a copy from the US Shyster demanding that I cease and desist publishing information obtained from the United States v. Ammon Bundy, et al, discovery evidence. He began by saying, I am here in Los Molinos with the US Marshals, and I suppose you know what this is about.” About that time, my wife buzzed me and told me that lunch was ready.

I then asked if it was to arrest me. He affirmed that that was the purpose. I asked if I could have about an hour to explain to my family what was occurring. After conferring with someone on his end, he said that would be okay. I told him that I would call him when I was ready. I must say that I honestly believe, because of the tone of his voice, that SA Catalano did not enjoy his task

I called my team and gave them the simple message, “I am going to be arrested and transported to Sacramento.” Please post that on my Facebook pages.” I told them that there was no more to report, at this time. Then, I went to the house, planning to do a bit more preparation, after I had eaten.

As I sat down to eat lunch, the task that I had anticipated, though somehow hoped would not occur, became reality. My wife and children know what I do, but our agreement is that my work stays in my office, and out of the house. They had no idea what I had been writing, but that was about ready to explode, big time, as I began, “I am going to be arrested within an hour.”

I tried to explain the background, and that the principles that I held so dearly had led to this situation. My wife, however, was distraught and my children simply confused. In the ensuing turmoil, I did not make adequate preparation. I did not fulfill my plan to make a list of phone numbers. And, as I have since learned, it would also be wise to take a fully charged cell phone, and some cash, if you are being “self-arrested”. These exigencies will be explained, where appropriate.

I did empty my pockets. I had only my reading glasses, a bandana, a cigarette lighter, cigarettes, and a crush hat. That, of course, besides the clothes that I was wearing.

Fully prepared for what was to come, I called SA Catalano and told him, “I’m ready. I will meet you on the road and I will be unarmed.” Then, I left my home, went to the road and walked down about a hundred feet, out of sight of my wife and children, and stood with my hands at my side.

A few minutes later, two vehicles came down our country road. They stopped about 200 feet from me. Then, they moved, slowly, in my direction. They stopped, again, and two armed US Marshals, automatic weapons, body armor, and fully black (that used to be the color for the bad guys, and, I presume, unchanged.). They stood, cautiously, by their vehicles and motioned for me to come toward them. I did so with my arms well out to the side and my palms facing toward them. When I got adjacent to the vehicle, one of the Marshals told me to turn around and put my hands behind my back, I did so. I asked, “Are you going to take me all of the way to Sacramento with my hands behind my back?” Another Marshall told him to “five-point” me, so even before the “cuffs” were put on, a waist-chain was wrapped around my waist. Then, they cuffed one hand, inserted the other cuff through a slot in the waist-chain, then cuffed the second hand. They frisked me, but took nothing from me. Next came the leg irons. They are larger in circumference than the handcuffs and have a chain between the two “bracelets”, about 2 feet long. I was then placed in one of the vehicles.

From there, we went into Los Molinos proper, near the fire station. I got out of the vehicle and they rearranged themselves, now, the four Marshals went to their respective four vehicles. I was thinking, holy crap, four marshals, four vehicles, and that doesn’t include Catalano and another agent in a beige FBI vehicle. The marshals commenced to get their equipment into their respective vehicles and then began the motorcade.

The Marshal who drove me down to Sacramento said that he would let me have a cigarette before we reached Sacramento, and he was good to his word. After about an hour, I asked if I could have my cigarette, and he said that I could. So, with hands cinched tightly to my waist, I managed to get the lighter out of my pants pocket. Then, I pulled a single cigarette from my shirt pocket, lit it, and slipped the lighter into the shirt pocket. To light the cigarette, I had to bend forward so that I could hold the lighter close enough to the cigarette to affect the desired exercise. The same process was necessary to smoke, so I would often leave the cigarette dangling from my mouth rather than contort myself to remove, and later, replace it.

Just over a third of the cigarette smoked, it fell from my hands onto the floor of the vehicle. There was no way that I could pick it up; I didn’t know what to do. He told me to step on it and light another one, which I did. When I finished that second cigarette, he told me to throw it on the floor and step on it, too. That became my last cigarette for seven days.

During the two-hour drive, there was quite a bit of conversation. The Marshal’s name was Rob (LNU, since he chose not to give it). He told me that Catalano had told them about me, that I was peaceful and simply a writer. He also mentioned that Catalano had told them that I had written kindly about him during our previous meetings. That sure took the edge off.

Then, we got into a discussion of my “crime”. Possible contempt of court, failure to appear at a show cause hearing, though nothing of violence. He suggested that I would probably be home by dinnertime, and called the US Marshal Office in Sacramento to see if they could arrange my hearing, as soon as possible. We were almost to Sacramento when they called back and said that my hearing would be the next day, Friday, at 2:00 in the afternoon. Well, there went my dinner at home, though I really was not prepared for what followed at the hearing.

As a bit of a side note, I asked Rob why they chose to drive the 120 miles, not even knowing if I was at home. He said that they knew I was at home. This got me to thinking, how could they know, for sure. Years ago, when I had an outstanding warrant in Florida, there was a phone call, I answered, then silence and click. Less than five minutes later, the police kicked in my door. A logical method is to call and see who answers. I did receive a phone call at 10:04 am. It was from someone that I haven’t heard from in a while — back when there was a bit of controversy. The timing would be about right, so I will patiently wait for that person, who I am sure will read this, calls and provides an explanation — or not.

Jail

The Booking Report shows that I was arrested at 12:15. I was taken directly to the Sacramento County Jail. I arrived there shortly after 2:00 and began the “Intake” process. First, they took my personal property, less clothing. Apparently, the US Marshals have to initiate the process, so, they took my belt, shoelaces, cigarettes, lighter, glasses, and my papers (the entire Freedom of the Press series and corresponding Court documents from Oregon). Then I was moved into a room with a bunch of other people. I just waited. . It is at this point that the 5-point” manacles are removed, with no replacement. Hands free, at least for the time being.

During this rather lengthy wait, some people began to discuss their charges. I was asked, and I stated that I was a federal prisoner. Well, that got the interest going, so I explained the circumstances that led to my presence in their midst. There were about thirty people in the room we were in, and only room for about five to lay down to sleep. There were a couple of guys trying to sleep on a bench and one of them looked over, seemingly irritated by the noise that was keeping him awake. We will get back to this particular person, later, though I don’t recall any direct conversation with him at that time.

Next, we were shuffled into “booking”, where our pictures were taken and wristbands made. This would be the official time of booking, and is shown as 19:09 (7:09 pm). So, that is five hours squandered due to the inefficiency of government. All of it in very uncomfortable circumstances. However, we are not even close to, well, being inmates/detainees. That won’t happen until we have a cell and a bunk. And, I was advised that the US Marshals would pick me up at 7:00 am.

Eventually, we were moved into a room where you are asked your size, then thrown a bundle and told to change into those wonderful orange suits. I didn’t know how they determined size, so the guy throwing the clothes said, “Two”, and tossed me my bundle. In the next room, we undressed, transferred all of our clothing into paper bags, and donned our new apparel. It was then that I realized that I was a “three”, though I remained dressed as a “two” during my entire stay.

Then, back to a holding cell. Finally, we are moved to semi-permanent quarters, 7th floor, West, pod 8, cell 14. A rather luxurious cell, or at least mattress, compared to my next two “rooms”. This was about 2:00 am. So, we can see that there was nearly 12 hours of “Intake” before I was finally confirmed as ‘incarcerated’.

Now, breakfast is served in our room at 5:00, though, since they don’t want you to miss the wonderful fare, they wake you between 4:30 and 4:45. I do not function too well with only three hours sleep, especially when there is no activity taking place, except, well, a healthy dose of boredom. There wasn’t enough time to really get back to sleep before my 7:00 escorted excursion to the federal building, just across the street from the jail, so I formalized the boredom by simply sitting on my bunk.

Speaking of my bunk, the walls, floor, and bed are either cold painted concrete or cold painted metal. The room is about 12′ x 8′. The bunks (lower and upper) are across the rear 8′ wall and about 3 1/2 feet wide. Then, you have a fine table, mounted securely to the wall, and finally, the kitchen/commode combo. When the commode is flushed, it is loud enough for you to close your eyes and think that you are at Niagara Falls. However, the sink has a cold and, well, ‘hot’, button. Each, when depressed, provides about ten seconds of flow. If you push the ‘hot’ button four or five times, you get what might be called extremely warm water.

There are two tiers, upper and lower. Each tier has 20 cells, totaling 40 cells, each with 2 prisoners. The open area has about 12 tables, most seating 4 people, and some seating 6. However, they are not used for eating, as eating is done in the cells. A serious lack of either foresight or application.

There are two telephones at each of three locations. Supposedly, two phones are for the “Norths” (Northern California Mexicans) and three for the Crips (Negros and other non-whites). However, and here is where White Privilege comes into play, the remaining phone is used by mostly non-whites. It seems that Whites are privileged if they get to use a phone. However, some of the Crips allowed me, to use their phone, once they were finished using it.

Phone calls can go up to 20 minutes. We are allowed out for an hour, twice a day, in the pod area, So, that means each phone, unless someone has a short conversation, usually handles only 3 or 4 calls. That, then, allows about 48 calls per day for 80 people.

Now, I was trying to comfort my wife, make contact with close friends and my team, and find an attorney. Considering that I was a detainee and not a convict, it would seem that access would be more readily available. Instead, under those conditions, it was quite frustrating. Persistence, however, finally got me to the point where I could contact some people that were very helpful in arranging things, contacting attorneys, etc. To them, my undying gratitude.

However, to put a bit of perspective on this whole things, when I went to my hearing for the Eastern District of California, I met my Federal Public Defender, Doug Beevers. His words, as well as mine, fell on deaf ears to the Magistrate Edmund Brennan. I was not released under unsecured bond, as was expected. Instead, I was held in custody pending transfer to Oregon. That order indicated that I would be available for the hearing on April 25, 2017. That would have been my 26th day in custody.

Believing jailhouse rumors, it appeared that I would be dieseled. Ironically, Pahrump was a weigh-stop in the western states. So, when I got out, I spoke with Jon Ritzheimer to compare notes. Jon was arrested on January 26; Moved to Oklahoma on February 13; Moved to Pahrump, Nevada from the 14th to the 19th; and, Booked into Oregon on February 19.

So, Jon’s sojourn was 25 days. My sojourn, as determined by Magistrate Brennan, would have been 26 days. There can be little doubt that the intention was to diesel me as they did Jon. However, as you will see, that is not what was intended, though that will be explained in a subsequent article.

The problem, however, is contacting an attorney, even though only accused, not even convicted. How can one seek “assistance of Counsel” (4th Amendment) when one can’t even contact his Court appointed counsel? Mr. Beevers could not call me in jail. We could only talk if he came to visit. And, there is just about none of that, until things started to change. This, too, will be discussed in its proper place.

We are also given a packet containing essentials. This includes a comb, toothpaste (I think — it smells like toothpaste), and what they call a toothbrush. The toothbrush is rather novel. It reminds me of the tip of a cake-frosting nozzle, though it is plastic and slides over your finger tip. On one side, it has a ridge topped by some bristles that are at least a 16th of an inch long. However, in my seven days, I never did master the art of brushing with that object that reminds me of a Cracker-Jacks prize. I simply brushed my teeth with my finger.

There are a few good people that I should name. The head trustee at 5W[est], pod 3, is a Negro named, or, well, answers to “12 Gauge”, nickname simply “12”. When I was quite far behind in phone calls, he arranged for me to have 45 minutes outside of my cell, with access to the phones. This allowed me to almost catch up after my White Privilege failed me.

Then, there was another White guy named Chet. He was extremely helpful in understanding just how the ‘system’ in the jail structure (prisoner side) works. I got to know the ‘rules’ and was able to get along with the rest of the population without creating ‘offenses’.

Then, there was Dustin. He was my cellmate for all but my first night in jail. We became good friends, partially because I did what I could to ease his withdrawal from heroin, and partially because he seemed to see me as a father figure and, hopefully, he will now see that he has to grab life by the, well, you know, rather than let life grab him by the same means. There will be one more, mentioned later, in its proper place.

The daily routine is breakfast at 4:00 am; Lunch at 11:00 am, and dinner at 4:00 pm, or thereabouts. Now, I have always had an aversion to eating something I could not identify. BTW, I lost about 5 pounds, so, perhaps, some may want to consider this route if they want to cut some weight off. Unlike clinics for that purpose, this is at taxpayers’ expense.

Between breakfast and lunch, and then after dinner, are the two “Day Room” one-hour periods in which you can make phone calls. Unfortunately, only once did that period overlap normal working hours. This makes it difficult to contact the attorney’s office, at least until later when I got his cell phone number.

That’s about it for the daily routine. Now, let’s see what it takes to check out of the Graybar Hotel.

Approaching Freedom

At about 2:00 pm, Friday, April 6, I joined a telephonic Release Hearing, before Judge Anna Brown, and included Pamela Holsinger, US Shyster’s Office; Susan Wilk, Federal Public Defender for the purpose of the Release Hearing; Michael Rose, Federal Public Defender, for all other purposes; and, Doug Beevers, California Federal Public Defender, and able counsel during my stay in Sacramento. Present in the Courtroom were some journalists, including Maxine Bernstein of Oregon Live.

Regardless of the Eastern District Magistrate Brennan’s effort to retain me in custody for another 24 days, we were down to obtaining my release. I was reluctant to sign the “Appearance Bond” and the “Notice to Defendant Being Released” because, well, those forms are for Defendants, which I am not. So, it was determined and agreed to that henceforth I would be referred to as “Person” or “Respondent”, thereby not subjecting me to the jurisdiction of the Court by chicanery. It was further determined that my appearance at the May 9 jurisdiction hearing would not be an admission to the jurisdiction of the Court. That was so agreed, I will be present in Portland on May 9, to argue jurisdiction, though I will enter the Courtroom under my conditions, as stated in writing. And, since March 10, when I “failed to appear”, my sole purpose was enter the Courtroom under those conditions. However, absent my stay in jail in Sacramento, I was at a loss as to how I could achieve that objective. Now, it is a done deal.

The appropriate paperwork was completed, and Mr. Beevers brought them to the jail for my signature. They were then sent to Portland, approved by Judge Brown, entered in the record, and the “Order Setting Conditions of Release” was transmitted to the Sacramento County Sheriff.

Less than an hour after signing the papers, as I sat on my concrete bunk, the loudspeaker announced, “Hunt, grab your blankets and towel and go to Control”. Control, by the way, is outside of the pod, between the 2 Pod and the 3 Pod. Any time you leave your pod, or return to your pod, you check in with someone behind a darkened window, giving name and purpose. My purpose was release, and this occurred about 5:00 pm.

From the pod, I went down to the first floor and a holding cell. There were nearly 30 people there when I arrived. Most already had their civilian clothes on — no more orange suits. I found that the next step would be the return of our civilian clothes, and waited, anxiously, to get back into something that I chose to wear. And, I waited. As I did, more people entered the cell.

One of those who had entered the cell shortly before I did said, “Gary, you’re here, too!” I looked around and saw a face that I had seen seven days before in intake. We had not really met, back then. Bob had been trying to sleep, though he had little choice but to listen as I explained my ‘crime’ to those that had asked. He had a good recall of names, and it was quite a shock to be recognized under the circumstances. We talked and he had a phone in property. I asked if I could call my attorney with his phone, once we were on the street. He willingly agreed, and we continued talking, wasting away the time, as best we could.

Then, a small group, about 15 people, was called into the next room. About 6:30, a bunch of paper bags filled with clothing, each having a name and number on them, were unceremoniously thrown into the room. A scramble ensued, each trying to find his clothes and change into them. I found mine, and trying desperately to find a place to stand to shed the orange and get back into my own clothes, I doffed the jail clothes, including underwear, and returned to some semblance of humanity with my real clothes now covering my body. We also received debit cards for any commissary funds still on our accounts, and any cash taken during booking.

This led us to believe that our time was short. However, it was well after 9:00 when they began calling the newly clothed, ex-prisoners, into the next room in small groups. In that room we were forced to stand and face the wall as one at a time, we were called to a workstation. There, we had to provide electronic thumbprints, instantly compared to those on file from our booking, and then allow the guard to compare our face with those pictures taken at the same time. We then had our personal property bags handed to us, not to be opened, and sent back to the wall.

Free, at last

After our group had all been electronically approved, we were told to go into a small room, with electronic doors. Once we were in that room, the door back to the cells was closed. Then, the door on the other side opened into the lobby of the Sheriffs jail, and we were told to go directly outside. My attorney had told me that there would be pay phones at this point, and that I could call him collect. Well, there were no pay phones, nor had there been an opportunity to use them, as we were shuffled out the door and onto the sidewalk.

It was raining. There was no cover over the doors. The rain was falling just a foot from the door and splashing on the windows. We had been cast onto the rainy street like stray animals — and this is how the Sacramento County Sheriff treats those who are “innocent until proven guilty”.

Once on the street, and free, again, I opened my property bag, grabbed my crush hat (glad now that I had worn it to be arrested), put it on my head and then grabbed my shoelaces. Still standing in the rain, I watched Bob thread his shoelaces, trying to keep them flat. However, we are out. And that is good enough to weather the weather.

I pulled out my cigarettes, offered him one, and we smoked our first smoke in a week. Then, we made plans to find a pay telephone. Well, after walking about four or five blocks and finding nothing open, he suggested we go to “Old Sacramento”, which are some nineteenth century buildings about twenty feet below the current street level and protected by a levy. We passed a rather noisy bar, not suitable for conversation, and then found an eatery called Fanny Ann’s. It was now about 10:15 pm. We decide first on some real food. Bob had no money or commissary, so I used my card to buy two large blue cheese-bacon burgers and a couple of sodas. We sat down to eat and contemplate our next move. Bob managed to borrow a phone from the bartender and called his mother to pick him up. I asked if I could go along and use her phone, though as we talked about it, the conversation changed to him getting his car and driving me the 120 plus miles to my home. I would give him $120.00 and the rest of what was on the debit card, and the deal was struck.

My team had arranged for an Uber driver, though they had expected me to be out before 9:00 and arranged for about that time for me to be picked up. My point of contact was Mr. Beevers, my attorney. I found later that he had waited at the door until just after nine O’clock, and then gone home. If I called him, he would have to call the Uber driver. If the Uber driver did not want to make the long trip, after the scheduled time, it would be a start over, and I just wanted to sleep in my own bed, for a change.

So, Bob drove me to my home in Los Molinos. We had some good conversation — not jail talk, as before, and parted as friends sometime after midnight — but I was finally home.

Onward and upward,

Freedom of the Press #14
Telephonic Hearing


Gary Hunt
Outpost of Freedom
April 19, 2017

In my previous article, “Freedom of the Press #13 – Sojourn to Sacramento“, I mentioned the telephonic hearing held on Thursday, April 6, leading to my release, just a few hours later. Prior to the hearing, it was set in stone, by Magistrate Brennan, in Sacramento, that I would not arrive in Portland until April 25. This fits the schedule for “diesel therapy” (where the run you all over the country, in a sense, punishing you for being accused of a criminal act), which would take me to Oklahoma, then to Pahrump, Nevada, and then on to Portland over a period of twenty-five days. The hearing, however, forestalled that tour of the West. What led up to that hearing is the subject of this article.

I was self-arrested at my home and transported to Sacramento, California, on Thursday, March 30. Judge Anna Brown was apprised of the arrest on Thursday, shortly after I was arrested. I will describe the events as I lived them and provide pertinent entries from the Ammon Bundy, et al case in Oregon, Docket reports.

03/30/2017 [ECF#] 2051
ORDER On March 10, 2017, the Court entered a Sealed Order # 2017 Granting Government’s Request for Arrest Warrant as to Gary Hunt. On March 30, 2017, the government advised the Court that Gary Hunt has been taken into custody pursuant to this Court’s arrest warrant. Accordingly, because there is no longer any need to maintain under seal the Court’s Order # 2017 , the Court directs the Clerk to unseal Order # 2017 Granting Government’s Request for Arrest Warrant as to Gary Hunt. Ordered by Judge Anna J. Brown. (pvh) (Entered: 03/30/2017)

On March 30, Judge Brown knew that the Warrant had been served. Now, as I understand from my Federal Public Defender, Douglas Beevers, on Tuesday, April 4, Judge Brown had been waiting to be notified that I had arrived in Portland. Apparently, she expected me to be in Portland on Monday. When she contacted the US Marshal Service, they told her that I was being held in Sacramento. Apparently, she had been advised that I would be arriving on April 25, via the diesel route.

.

On 7:00 am, Friday, March 31, I was five-pointed (waist chain, handcuffs, and leg irons) and transported from the Sacramento County Jail, by US Marshal van. They drove about four blocks to get me to the Federal District Courthouse, directly across the street from the Sacramento County Jail.

I met my California Federal Public Defender, Douglas Beevers about an hour before my scheduled bail hearing. In about 15 minutes, I had to explain the circumstances leading up to my arrest. Magistrate Brennan refused me bail, and I was to be held, as stated, to be available in Portland on April 25. It was a done deal in Brennan’s mind when I went into his courtroom. The reason behind his set mind will be the subject of another article.

After the 2:00 pm hearing, I was returned to jail by the same means, though the driver stopped and started, quickly, a couple of times. There is no way to keep from sliding around when you are all trussed up. I can see how injuries can occur with this form of shackled transport. Fortunately, this was my last official government ride.

When I returned to jail, I found my new quarters already reserved for me.

Tuesday, April 4, one of my contacts advised me that, via email, that my attorney (Beevers) would be in that morning. When afternoon arrived, I was rather upset that he did not show up. I had no way to contact him.

Wednesday, April 5, afternoon, Beevers visited me and said that Thursday we would have a telephonic hearing with Judge Brown. I advised him that the Sheriffs Jail had no facilities for inmates to have secure communications with attorneys or any such hearing.

This started a series of communications that resulted in the determination to hold a telephonic hearing on Thursday, April 6, as described, above. However, I had already found that the Sacramento Jail has no provision for secure communication between my lawyer, and me except in a face-to-face visitor area. He passed that information up to Oregon. Judge Brown then arranged for the hearing. The guard that was in the room with me during the hearing informed me that what was happening by my being able to have such communication was “quite rare”. I must applaud Judge Brown for expediting the hearing by forcing the Sheriff’s Jail to accommodate that aspect of justice.

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2054
Scheduling Order: SETTING a Show Cause Hearing for Thursday, 4/6/2017 at 1:00 PM in Courtroom 14A before Judge Anna J. Brown. Gary Hunt is directed to appear by phone. Counsel for the Government and Counsel for Gary Hunt will be present in Courtroom 14A. Ordered by Judge Anna J. Brown. (pvh) (Entered: 04/06/2017)

This ended up being a “Release Hearing”, as I was not in any position to present any testimony or evidence on my behalf. See ECF # 2056 (below).

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2055
Motion for Revocation of Detention Order filed by Interested Non-Party Gary Hunt as to Defendant Ammon Bundy, Jon Ritzheimer, Joseph O’Shaughnessy, Ryan Payne, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox, Peter Santilli, Jason Patrick, Duane Leo Ehmer, Dylan Anderson, Sean Anderson, David Lee Fry, Jeff Wayne Banta, Sandra Lynn Anderson, Kenneth Medenbach, Blaine Cooper, Wesley Kjar, Corey Lequieu, Neil Wampler, Jason Charles Blomgren, Darryl William Thorn, Geoffrey Stanek, Travis Cox, Eric Lee Flores, Jake Ryan. (schm) (Entered: 04/06/2017)

This Motion was at the request of my attorneys.

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2056
AMENDED Scheduling Order: SETTING a Release Hearing for Thursday, 4/6/2017 at 1:00 PM in Courtroom 14A before Judge Anna J. Brown.

Gary Hunt is directed to appear by phone. Counsel for the Government and Counsel for Gary Hunt will be present in Courtroom 14A. Ordered by Judge Anna J. Brown. (pvh) (Entered: 04/06/2017)

I was not put into the call until close to 2:00, and I have no idea what occurred for the first hour. I have requested transcripts, as I believe that I have a right to know about all of the proceedings on my ’cause’.

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2057
Order Setting Conditions of Release as to Gary Hunt by Judge Anna J. Brown (Attachments: # 1 Notice to Person and Appearance Bond) (slm) Modified on 4/6/2017, request from attorney Michael E. Rose to send him a copy of this order as Mr. Rose was appointed by Judge Brown for Gary Hunt. I e-mailed the order to mrose@civilrightspdx.com (schm). (Entered: 04/06/2017)

Then, we have the “Minutes of the Proceeding”, which, as I said, I joined about 2:00 pm.

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2058
Minutes of Proceedings: Release Hearing held on 4/6/2017 before Judge Anna J. Brown as to third-party Respondent Gary Hunt. Gary Hunt appeared by telephone. ORDER – Appointing Susan Wilk from the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the limited purpose of preparing for and representing Hunt during this Release Hearing. Appointing Michael Rose for all other purposes. Scheduling order to follow. Counsel present for Plaintiff: Pamala Holsinger. Counsel Present for Respondent: Susan Wilk; Michael Rose (by telephone); and Douglas Beevers, Assistant Federal Public Defender in the Eastern District of California (by telephone). (Court Reporter Amanda LeGore). Judge Anna J. Brown, presiding. (pvh) (Entered: 04/06/2017)

As a result of the hearing, and working out some details, as explained in the previous article, I was released from “detention”.

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2059
ORDER: For the reasons stated on the record at the Release Hearing held April 6, 2017, and pursuant to the Order # 2057 Setting Conditions of Release, the Court GRANTS Motion # 2055 for Revocation of Detention Order filed by Gary Hunt. Ordered by Judge Anna J. Brown. (pvh) (Entered: 04/06/2017)

In accordance with my and my counsel’s request, the following stipulations were made a part of the record.

04/06/2017 [ECF#] 2060
SCHEDULING ORDER: For all purposes related to proceedings against Gary Hunt in this matter, the parties and the Court will refer to him as “Respondent Gary Hunt” or “Respondent” or “Hunt,” but not as “Defendant Gary Hunt.” As the parties agreed during the Release Hearing on April 6, 2017, the Court will adjudicate Respondent Gary Hunt’s response to the Court’s Order # 1901 in two stages. The Court will first hear the parties’ arguments as to the jurisdictional issues Respondent seeks to make. Respondent’s memorandum regarding jurisdictional issues is due no later than Noon on April 21, 2017. The government’s response is due no later than Noon on May 1, 2017. No reply will be permitted, and, accordingly, the Court encourages counsel to confer about the merits of these jurisdictional issues before Respondent files his memorandum. The Court SETS a hearing regarding the jurisdictional issues on May 9, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. in Courtroom 14A of the Mark O. Hatfield U. S. Courthouse, 1000 SW Third Avenue, Portland, OR. Pursuant to its orders authorizing Hunt’s release, Hunt is required to appear in person at this hearing. In the event that the Court determines it has jurisdiction to continue to consider the merits of the government’s arguments in support of finding Hunt in contempt for allegedly violating certain Protective Orders in this matter, the Court will set an additional briefing schedule and another hearing date and time at which Hunt must appear to in order adjudicate Hunt’s response to the Court’s previous Orders to Show Cause. The Court directs Hunt’s counsel, Michael Rose, to ensure Hunt receives a copy of this Order. Ordered by Judge Anna J. Brown. (pvh) (Entered: 04/06/2017)

Now, a behemoth system like the jail/prison system in this country is a difficult beast to cause to change direction. As it was, after the first hearing, I was caught up in a government paid tour of the Western States, by land and by air, all meals, and lodging paid with your tax dollars.

However, when Judge Anna Brown found that she would have either to set that system straight, or delay any hearings regarding the publication of my articles, for quite some time. Judge Brown asserted her authority to overcome that behemoth, arranging for the Sacramento Jail to establish communications for my participation. She also arranged for my counsel, Michael Rose, in Oregon, and my counsel, Douglas Beevers, in California, as well as other Federal Public Defenders in Oregon, to participate in a release hearing, all within a very short period of time.

I must applaud Judge Anna Brown for assuring that I served a minimal time on the Arrest Warrant and that I would be released, on conditions acceptable to all, except the US Shysters, and on my way home, as quickly as it could possibly be done.

Whoa, gee whiz, I'll bet it's humiliating to get treated that way.

So he has a public defender for a critical first amendment case. That fills me with confidence...not.

I guess the bright side is that it wasn't an Oregon based public defender.
