Police State New York: Video of Heicklen’s Arrest 6/14/2010

The place just isn’t the same. Going near the courts in lower Manhattan, New York City seems under siege. Streets are blocked off with mechanized metal barriers. Police from all levels of government, local, state, and federal, abound. Some are busy inspecting under cars with mirrors. Some aren’t so busy standing in little guard houses keeping an eye on their surroundings. Others just milling about. This is the surreal world we walked into.

It was obvious they knew that Julian Heicklen was coming, then again we made enough noise on the Internet about it. As soon as they spotted him in the park near the federal courthouse they were watching. They watched and followed as we approached the court. Julian walked right into the middle of the bunch of them. He was arrested before he could even hand out one pamphlet.

Seattle’s Blue Gang Extortion Racket

The incident with a Seattle Police Officer punching a 17-year-old woman in the face has caused much controversy. I commend the young women involved for their courage in standing up to legal plunder.

Police State New York: Video of Heicklen’s Arrest 6/14/2010

The place just isn’t the same. Going near the courts in lower Manhattan, New York City seems under siege. Streets are blocked off with mechanized metal barriers. Police from all levels of government, local, state, and federal, abound. Some are busy inspecting under cars with mirrors. Some aren’t so busy standing in little guard houses keeping an eye on their surroundings. Others just milling about. This is the surreal world we walked into.

It was obvious they knew that Julian Heicklen was coming, then again we made enough noise on the Internet about it. As soon as they spotted him in the park near the federal courthouse they were watching. They watched and followed as we approached the court. Julian walked right into the middle of the bunch of them. He was arrested before he could even hand out one pamphlet.

See it for yourself:



During this sad event a female officer came by yelling at the others that people were filming and that that was not allowed. Always a day late and a dollar short, none of the federal thugs tried to stop my filming until after Julian was in the sinister black van.

After we regrouped in Foley Square across from the courts about 250
Fully Informed Jury Association pamphlets were passed out. Everything went smoothly, though the pamphleteers were questioned by two NYPD officers who soon moved along.

Reflecting on that day I’m surprised at Julian’s tenacity, though very glad to see it. At the same time I’m saddened to think of what the US government has become. How far they are from Jefferson’s immortal words in the Declaration of Independence telling us that government is "to secure these rights" not violate them.

Below is the email Julian Heicklen sent out after his release:

Hi Tyranny Fighters:

1. FIJA demonstration of June 14, 2010
I arrived at Foley Square in Manhattan at about 11:20 am. It was a warm, but cloudy day. Soon thereafter I was met by four activists from the Philadelphia, PA, area; one activist from New Jersey; and one activist from Suffolk County at the end of Long Island.

At 11:55 am we proceeded to the U. S. District Courtyard. I was met by several Homeland Security police officers. Before, I even took a pamphlet or the JURY INFO sign from my tote bag, Deputy Federal Marshal Hernando (or something like that) placed me under arrest. I immediately fell to the ground.

I was cuffed very tightly behind my back and dragged into the courthouse. It was painful, and the capillaries in my wrists were broken. I was continually handcuffed, mostly in front. Sometimes when I was in a cell (always alone), the cuffs were removed.

My property in the tote bag and in my pockets , as well as my glasses, sweater, cap, belt, and shoelaces, were taken away.

During this time, I did not move a muscle or make a sound, except once when they really inflicted pain, I moaned. The guards asked a lot of questions, including if they could take my picture of get fingerprints. I never answered. The guards considered this a refusal.

I was moved from cell to cell, since the guards kept changing their minds as to wether I should see a judge or go to Bellevue Hospital for evaluation. My pants kept falling down, since I had no belt. Finally, I was put into a wheel chair and taken to a paddy wagon to be delivered to Bellevue Hospital. While there the nurse took my blood pressure, my temperature, and blood to test for sugar. She then discharged me, and I was returned to the federal court house and put into a small cell facing the wall. By then, I had to urinate badly, so I urinated on the floor. The guard came rushing in, said that if I did that again, he would beat me into shit and break my bones. He then wheeled me into the urine.

The federal guards were more articulate than those in the New York police and correctional system. They had a 3-word, rather than a 2-word vocabulary. They said, "fuck, shit, and faggot" in all sequences and meanings.

While I was in the urinated cell, Robert Baum, an Assistant Federal Defender, and Lindsey, his assistant, came to see me. He agreed to be my temporary stand-by counsel. After talking to me, he talked to the prosecuting attorney. She agreed to let me be released on my own recognizance without bail, if I would have my fingerprints and picture taken. I agreed. This was done, and I went to court handcuffed. The magistrate set a court date for July 20, 2010. Mr. Baum had all of my property. I was taken to the Judge Magistrate Clerk’s office to sign and receive some papers. I was released at 5:20 pm.

Not until I was about to enter the court room, was I given my Miranda warning that I could remain silent. Until that time, the guards tried to get all sorts of information from me, but I was mute.


The court date of July 20, 2010, is just to set the conditions for trial. I will plead not guilty and ask for a jury trial. It is not clear that I will be able to get a jury trial.

After I was released I went to the NY City police headquarters at 1 Plaza place to reclaim the property seized from me on May 25, 2010. The property office was closed, and I was told to come back tomorrow.

I left for home and arrived home at 7:45 pm.

Thanks for the support today of my associates in freedom. They inquired about me at the courthouse, and called my wife to tell her that I had been arrested.

2. Facebook

I can no longer access Facebook nor receive Emails from Facebook. I requested an explanation from Facebook and received the message that follows.

"The website you are visiting appears to contain Malware. Malware is malicious software that may harm your computer or otherwise operate without your consent. Your computer can be infected just by browsing to a site with Malware, without any further action on your part."

This is your federal government at work. I cannot be contacted through Facebook. Please notify all your contacts that they can only reach me through my email at jph13@psu.edu (until our government shuts that down).
3. Financial needs

Our FIJA outreach program has ballooned beyond my wildest expectations. One problem that this poses is financial. The costs are now exceeding our financial capabilities. You can help alleviate this problem by making donations to the following:

George Donnelly legal defense fund. George was arrested in Allentown and charged with misdemeanor assault, even though he was the victim of the assault. (Your federal government at work) He faces a possible extensive prison sentence. He is trying to raise $15,000 for anticipated legal fees to defend himself. Please send him a donation. Go to the following web page to make a donation through PayPal at http://donnelly.chipin.com/donnelly-legal-defense

Also the American Jury Institute (FIJA) expenses will be mounting. You can help by joining the American Jury Institute, or just making a donation. Its web page is at http://fija.org/support-fija/

The US District Court in San Diego (I presume) has issued an order to foreclose on Mike Benoit's home without his right to a jury trial preserved. He feels great sadness for all of us including his brothers and sisters in liberty who suffer at the hands of the IRS and who are in prision due to this tyranny. He needs your help. Please dont wait until it is too late. Email him for information on what you can do to help win the battle. His e-mail address is in the header of this E-mail.

4. Pending actions

Because of circumstances beyond my control, I had to cancel my Las Vegas trip. I also have canceled my visit to the Burlington, VT courthouse on Tuesday, June 22, 2010. However I will be distributing FIJA Literature at the following courthouses on the following dates. Please join me to observe, take pictures, or participate.

Monday, June 21 at 11:45 am: Albany, NY, James T. Foley United States Courthouse, 445 Broadway, Room 509
Tuesday, June 22 at 8:45 am: Hartford, CT, Abraham Ribicoff Federal Building and, United States Courthouse, 450 Main Street, Room A-12, Hartford , 06103-3022
Tuesday, June 22 at 11:45 am: Springfield, MA, 300 State Street, Room 1-120
Wednesday, June 23 at 11:45 am: Concord, NH, Warren B. Rudman US Courthouse, 55 Pleasant Street, Room 110
Thursday, June 24 at 11:45 am: Boston, MA, John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse, One Courthouse Way, Suite 2300

Friday, June 25, I will be a participant in the FIJA forum at the PorcFest in Lancaster, NH

Monday, June 28: I report for jury selection in the Bergen County, NJ courthouse.

You are welcome (encouraged) to join me to observe, take pictures, or distribute literature. I will provide the literature.

My cell phone is still in the possession of the NY city police. I can neither make, receive, not respond to telephone calls. I still have 211 E-mails to read. If your E-mail requires a response, I will answer, but do not hold your breath.

From Wednesday, June 16–Sunday, June 20, I will be at a bridge tournament in Saratoga Springs, NY. So I will not receive or send e-mail from June 16–June 25.
Warning: You should know that The Federal Protective Service, and possibly the FBI, is intercepting my e-mails. Another violation of our civil liberties. Be prudent if you write to me.

Mike Benoit has written a book entitled "Sham and Shame of the Federal Income Tax." You can purchase it directly from him for five dollars. His E-mail address is in the header of this E-mail.

THE PRICE OF FREEDOM IS ETERNAL VIGILANCE

THE PRICE OF JUSTICE IS ETERNAL PUBLICITY

Yours in freedom—Julian

My Comment on the US Economy

by Steven G. Erickson

As originally posted on: Judicial Abuse
June 7, 2010


I posted the below as a comment after reading [this OpEdnews.com article]

If you pay attention how the elected officials paid for by banksters, energy companies with the ethics of Enron, war corporations, global based organized criminals, and the powerbrokers of US corporations rule in the legislatures with enacted laws, you’ll see their agenda. If the US government had checks and balances, honest investigations, and courts that aren’t rigged, we the people would have a better economy and representation for our taxation.

When I owned property in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, an alleged former Mossad bar owner married to an FBI agent, offered me property in Hartford that could be bought for a dollar, by paying him $5000 and agreeing to borrow money from his “lender” friends.

The State Police, Stafford Connecticut town cops, the health inspector, building inspector, and organized crime were out to go after pizza parlor owners who aren’t Caucasian, who were outsiders selling artwork in a downtown shop, or who, like me owned property without bribing the proper officials, and not having the backing of local organized crime.

I was current on 3 mortgages, when I wrote Bush this letter, eluding to the above. I then lost everything, am now estranged from my daughter and family, and was held in Connecticut as a political prisoner. So, the sleaze has to be fixed in the US and other countries before it is safe for anyone to actually conduct honest business.

Government Goon Unions?



Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is a labor union representing about 1.8 million workers[1] in over 100 occupations in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The main divisions are health care (around 50% of the union's membership), including hospital, home care and nursing home workers, public services (government employees), and property services (including janitors and security officers). SEIU has over 300 local branches. It is affiliated with the Change to Win Federation and the Canadian Labour Congress. It is based in Washington, D.C., and has seven internal divisions: Communications, Education, Human Rights, International Affairs, Organization, Political, and Research.

SEIU is sometimes referred to as the "purple ocean," easily recognized at political events thanks to the union's purple shirts. The union is also known for its Justice for Janitors campaigns.

Operation TIPS
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Operation TIPS, where the last part is an acronym for the Terrorism Information and Prevention System, was a program designed by President George W. Bush to have United States citizens report suspicious activity. It came under intense scrutiny in July 2002 when the Washington Post alleged in an editorial that the program was vaguely defined, and investigative political journalist Ritt Goldstein observed in Australia's Sydney Morning Herald [1] that TIPS would provide America with a higher percentage of 'citizen spies' than the former East Germany had under the notorious Stasi secret police.

In the days immediately following Goldstein's revelation, publications such as the libertarian magazine Reason,[2] and then the progressive Boston Globe,[3] emphasized the Stasi analogy, widely highlighting Operation TIPS' shortcomings. TIPS was subsequently cancelled after concerns over civil liberties violations.

Goldstein later observed that he broke news of Operation TIPS on March 10 in Spain's second largest daily, El Mundo,[4] but that he struggled until July before finding a major English language paper which would print the story.

[edit] Overview

The program's website implied that US workers who had access to private citizens' homes, such as cable installers and telephone repair workers, would be reporting on what was in people's homes if it were deemed "suspicious."[5] The initial start of the program was to be August 2002 and would have included one million workers in ten US cities and then to be expanded.[6]

Operation TIPS was accused of doing an "end run" around the United States Constitution, and the original wording of the website was subsequently changed. President Bush's then-Attorney General, John Ashcroft denied that private residences would be surveilled by private citizens operating as government spies. Mr. Ashcroft nonetheless defended the program, equivocating on whether the reports by citizens on fellow citizens would be maintained in government databases. While saying that the information would not be in a central database as part of Operation TIPS, he maintained that the information would still be kept in databases by various law enforcement agencies.[7]

The databases were an explicit concern of various civil liberties groups (on both the left and the right) who felt that such databases could include false information about citizens with no way for those citizens to know that such information was compiled about them, nor any way for them to correct the information, nor any way for them to confront their accusers.

The United States Postal Service, after at first seeming supportive of the program, later resisted its personnel being included in this program, reasoning that if mail carriers became perceived as law enforcement personnel that they would be placed in danger at a level for which they could not reasonably be expected to be prepared, and that the downside of the program hence vastly outweighed any good that it could accomplish. The National Association of Letter Carriers, a postal labor union, was especially outspoken in its opposition.[8]

[edit] Attempted passage

Both Congressional Representative Dick Armey (Republican, Texas) and Senator Patrick Leahy (Democrat, Vermont) raised concerns. Senator Leahy said that it was similar to J. Edgar Hoover's misuse of the FBI during the 1960s when Hoover hired citizens to spy on neighbors who were political protesters. Rep. Armey included legislation in the House's Homeland Security Bill that explicitly prohibited the creation of Operation TIPS; but Joe Lieberman blocked the program's removal from the Senate version of the bill. The Senate, however, essentially passed the House version that eliminated the program. [9]

Operation TIPS was officially cancelled when the Homeland Security Act was passed by Congress in November 2002. Section 880 explicitly prohibited the program.[9]

[edit] Terrorism Liaison Officers

On June 30, 2008, the Denver Post reported that 181 individuals, including police officers, paramedics, firefighters, utility workers, and railroad employees had been trained as Terrorism Liaison Officers to report suspicious information which could be signs of terrorist activity.[10] The article also stated that TLOs were already active in six other states and the District of Columbia.
