Political Prisoner

Larken Rose writes about Dick Simkanin.

A while back, a request went out for people to send notes to Dick Simkanin, who is STILL in federal custody, awaiting his SECOND trial for failure to withhold.

In response to my last e-mail, a rather large number of you wanted to know how you could voice your opinions to the judge whose decision it was to keep NON-CONVICTED Dick Simkanin in prison, going on many months now. Far be it from me to shield these people from public anger.

Thank you Larken Rose.


Star Chamber Re-Indicts Simkanin

We doubt the Grand Jury room (in the basement) of the federal Court House in Fort Worth is ornamented with stars. However, for one day this week, at least, the Fort Worth Grand Jury functioned as a Star Chamber.

Thank you Bob Schulz.

The "System" Punts: Simkanin was not allowed to meet with the grand jury



This just in from Devvy Kidd, Director of We The People Congress:

Subj: Dick Simkanin
Date: 12/17/03 9:18:59 PM Central Standard Time
From: devvyk@earthlink.net
Sent from the Internet (Details)

A MASSIVE amount of preparation went into Dick's scheduled appearance in front of the GJ today. This is the outcome.

What else can one say in mixed company?

Dick was scheduled to meet with the Grand Jury today at 2:00 P.M. He was thoroughly prepared, and had three boxes of evidence to present to the Grand Jury. The federal prosecutor (Jarvis) reviewed the evidence that Dick had in his possession, and then notified him that he would not be allowed to meet with the Grand Jury.

Dick called tonight and was understandably very upset. Evidently, Arch McColl did not even object to this reprehensible conduct by the government. What took place today was an egregious violation of Simkanin's due process Rights, including his Right to confront the evidence and witnesses against him. For six months he has languished in prison with bank robbers and rapist, and for what crime?.

This judicial tyranny is the government's answer to our continued petitions and prayers for redress of our grievances. If tolerated, it will mark our end as a free people.

The government has now also filed a civil suit against Simkanin intended to destroy him financially.

When we reviewed his personal and business finances last evening, Dick told me that he expected those who have been receiving compensation to assist him, will be gone as soon as the money runs out in a couple of weeks. I promised him that no matter what happens, he will not be alone.

I will speak to Arch McColl tomorrow A.M. to find out exactly what happened at the Grand Jury proceeding today.
The immediate priority is to ensure Dick receives thoroughly competent legal representation, and try to save his business, which will be completely insolvent (and subject to seizure) within the next two weeks unless a solution can be found.

These are the times that try men's souls.

Judge John H. McBryde



I called Judge John H. McBryde and expressed my concern that Dick Simkanin is being held without conviction and that Dick receives a fair and honest trial.

Powered by audblogaudio post powered by audblog

Judge John H. McBryde
501 West Tenth Street
Room 401
Forth Worth, Texas, 76102
Phone 817-850-6650
(need email and website for Judge McBride)

That Dick Simkanin remains incarcerated in this day and age should create a massive cause of action among concerned individuals who are committed to standing up for the cause of freedom and liberty across our wonderful world.

Free Dick Simkanin





From : Automailer - freedomabovefortune.com automailer@freedomabovefortune.com

Subject : HOPE EXISTS BECAUSE YOU PROVIDE IT

Dear Friends and Supporters:

I just received a letter from Dick Simkanin, who, despite bearing the brunt of horrendous injustices and trumped-up incarceration, remains in good spirits. Part of the reason for his good spirits is the hundreds of letters he has received, in part resulting from a request I sent out to my supportive and generous email list.

I have transcribed Dick's handwritten letter below. As you can see, quick and inexpensive letters to Dick have provided him with mental and spiritual wealth beyond compare. He asks that you keep the letters and information coming. His address is:

Richard Simkanin
REG# 30383-177
FMC Jail Unit
P. O. Box 15330
Fort Worth, Texas 76119

As Dick describes in his letter, and as he predicted, the prison personnel have taken notice of the volume of letters Dick is receiving. Given that your letters to Dick are, in a sense, "open letters" that may be read by unenlightened government personnel (like I used to be), and given the comments in Dick's letter that there is already a "buzz" among the personnel, my suggestion is to encourage as many people as you can to send MORE letters. Put websites such as www.givemeliberty.org , www.freedomabovefortune.com , www.hearliberty.com , and www.americanradioshow.us/archive.html (11/26/03 show) on the envelopes and the letters so that Dick's unwitting captors have access to information they might not otherwise have access to.

Dear Joe & John

Thank you so much for telling the people on your email list about me. I received several hundred letters and other valuable information in just a three day period.

A number of the guards and staff members asked me what was going on. So I let them read several of the letters. They were impressed to say the least. As a matter of fact, every guard or staff person that knows why I'm here, says that I should not be here and they don't understand how what I did could even be a crime.

I have been trying to answer all the letters I get from people all over the country including Canada. Since I've been here I've been getting 2 to 10 letters a day, but with several hundred I wasn't able to answer them all. Please send a big thank you to your list. Most letters brought tears to my eyes with their indicated support and prayers. Please tell them I love them all and look forward to a day God allows me to meet many of them in person.

Please tell them to write again if they find some time. If anyone has month old or current newsletters, I would like to receive a copy to stay informed on what's going on in the Tax Honesty Movement.

Joe, please pass a copy of this letter along to John Turner as I also asked him to put me on his email list.

Thank you again for your help. And know that I will always be indebted to both of you for your past and present efforts to stand on truth and not give in to deceit and fraud.

God bless you and yours.

NUM 6:24-26

Dick Simkanin
