DEMONSTRATIONS OF 6/21–29/11
Informed Jury Distributions of June 21, 2011
I reached the U. S. District Courthouse in
White Plains, NY on June 21, 2011 at 11:45 am. It was a warm and
sunny day. I passed out the American Jury Institute pamphlet
entitled “A Primer for Prospective Jurors” with my insert
on the courthouse courtyard. There was very little pedestrian
At 12:30 pm, I signed up a juror as a Tyranny
Fighter. No federal officer appeared until 12:59 pm when an
officer exited the courthouse approached me, asked for pamphlet and
then returned to the courthouse. By now there was no pedestrian
traffic at all, so I left at 1:04 pm. I had distributed about 30

It was raining heavily all morning as I drove
to Albany, NY. I arrived at the U. S. District Courthouse at
11:46 am. It was sprinkling lightly. Bernie Continelli was
waiting for me. He was talking to a Homeland Security
Officer. As I joined them, the officer asked for our
identifications. Bernie showed them his, but I did not have any
ID and did not give my name. The officer took a pamphlet and left.
I proceeded to distribute pamphlets.
Almost immediately the rain stopped. It was still a cool (for
June) and overcast day. At 12:04 pm, a Homeland Security officer
walked by me, but did not stop to talk. There was not much
pedestrian traffic. I passed out about 30 pamphlets. At
1:04 pm the rain returned. We quit for the day.
I drove on about halfway to Burlington, VT and
rented a hotel room in a Super 8. It rained very heavily all the
way. It rained heavily all day except between about 11:45 am and
1:10 pm. It is nice to have someone upstairs facilitate our work.
Informed Jury Information of June 23, 2011
It was raining heavily all morning as I drove
to Burlington, VT. I arrived at the U. S. District Courthouse at
11:55 am. It was overcast and raining slightly. I used an
umbrella as I started distributing the American Jury Institute pamphlet
“A Primer for Potential Jurors” with my insert.
At 12:02 pm, a U. S. marshal told me to leave,
that there was a jury trial in process. I refused to
leave. At 12:15 pm a few men in plain clothes, who obviously were
court employees came out and told me that a jury trial was in process.
and that the judge wanted me to move. I informed them that I
never discuss a specific case with anyone. I declined their
invitation to leave. They returned to inside the
courthouse. By now the raining stopped.
At 12:40 pm, a passerby took 2 pamphlets, and
said that he would give one to the local newspaper. At 12:45 pm a
federal protective service officer in plainclothes drove up in an
unmarked car. Soon thereafter a police car parked in front of me,
but the officers never left the car.
The plainclothes officer identified himself as
the officer who arrested me in Springfield, MA last summer on my war to
PorcFest. H knew who I was, of course, but he asked for identity,
which I refused to give. He asked if there was a warrant out for
my arrest, because I did not pay last year’s fine nor appear at
the court hearing. I responded that I did not have the faintest
I told him that it would be foolish to
arrest me here and have to drag me all the way to Springfield, since I
will be distributing literature at the Springfield courthouse on next
Tuesday. If he is going to arrest me, it will be more convenient
for both of us if he waited until then. He left me and went into
the courthouse. A few minutes later, the police car left the
scene at 12:51 pm.
During my stay there was always a court officer
outside the building keeping an eye on things, but not near me.
Several officers rotated in this observation. At about 12:50 pm
it started raining again. I left the scene at 1:05 pm. I
had distributed 36 pamphlets. Several of these were passed to
people who identified themselves as jurors.
As I left the scene, it started to rain heavily
and continued as I traveled to Lancaster, NH, where the PorcFest is
held. Again, as it did on Wednesday, it rained all day,
except between noon and 1:00 pm. We really are getting assistance
from the guy upstairs.
I spent the weekend at PorcFest. Over
1000 people attended compared to about 600 last year. More and
more free-staters are moving to New Hampshire. I participated in
a question and answer session, where I answered questions on Friday. On
Saturday I delivered a one hour talk on the importance of persistence
in the freedom movement. Also I was interviewed by Tour for
There were many activities for people of
all persuasions and ages. The crowd was composed of anarchists,
agorists, and minarchists. I was the token fascist. There
were peddlers of food and all sorts of freedom items. There were
sports events, picnics, talks, dances, etc. A good time was had
by all (at least everyone that I met). I made many contacts and
signed up 46 new Tyranny Fighters. We now have 825 Tyranny
Fighters on the BCC list and 74 on the open list plus me. That
makes 900 registered Tyranny Fighters.
While at PorcFest I learned that Thomas Bell
immolated himself between 5:15 and 6:15 pm on June 15, 2011, on the
steps of the Cheshire County Superior Courthouse in Keene, NH. A
memorial service was held for him at that site at 12:30 pm on
Monday, June 27, 2010. David Cruz gave a short speech. When
persons immolate themselves, armed rebellion is soon to come.
Informed Jury Distribution of June 27, 2011
I reached the Cheshire County Superior
Courthouse in Keene, NH on June 27, 2011 at 11:45 am. It was a
warm and sunny day. There was no pedestrian traffic, so I went
across the street to the County District Courthouse where there was
more shade and pedestrian traffic. I passed out the American Jury
Institute pamphlet entitled “A Primer for Prospective
Jurors” with my insert on the courthouse steps.
At 12:30 pm, 25 Tyranny Fighters had
congregated with me. Many had their pictures taken with me.
At 12:45 pm, we returned to the County Superior Court for the memorial
service, but it had just been completed. A few people were laying
flowers on the spot where Thomas Bell had perished.
At 12:53 pm, we returned to the County District
Courthouse. At that time I learned that Beau, the newest member
of Liberty on Tour, had been arrested for contempt of court for not
removing his hat in the courtroom. He was imprisoned when I left
Keene. We quit at 1:15 pm. With all the action, I only
passed out a few pamphlets. Too much else going on.
Informed Jury Distribution of June 28, 2011
I reached the U. S District Courthouse in
Springfield, MA on June 28, 2011 at 12:05 pm. It was a very hot
and sunny day. A federal guard was at the courthouse door.
I stood on the courthouse courtyard and proceeded to distribute the
American Jury Institute pamphlet “A Primer for Prospective
Jurors” with my insert.
There was moderate pedestrian traffic, unlike
June, 2010, when there was almost no pedestrian traffic. Almost
everyone who passed accepted the pamphlet even a woman using her
cellphone and two people on bicycles. This was unusual.
Rarely do telephone users or bicyclists take pamphlets.
By 12:37 pm the guard at the courthouse
entrance had vanished. However a lady guard was pacing up and
down bout 40 feet from me. At 12:46 pm she left.
A worker in the area took a pamphlet and said
that he was a Libertarian. We chatted for a bit. Then he
went off for lunch. He invited me to join him. However I
did not leave my post for fear of being fired from my distributing
job. I already had been fired by the American Jury Institute, but
I am a scab laborer.
Soon a young man stopped by, took a pamphlet
and then gave me his pamphlet with Bible verses and the importance of
God in my life. We chatted for a bit. I suspect that
neither of us made a conversion, but it was a pleasant chat.
At 1:16 pm 2 federal officers passed me as they
were returning from lunch. They each took a pamphlet and proceed
to go into the courthouse.
At 1:27 pm, I quit for the day. I had
passed out about 100 pamphlets.
The most interesting development was that I was
never approached by a guard. Last year on my visit to this
courthouse, I was arrested and cited for violating the Department of
Homeland Security regulation against distributing literature on federal
property, and taken to a hospital where I was tortured. I did not
pay the fine nor appear for my court appearance. Surely there was
a warrant for my arrest. However nothing happened. I was
not even approached by a guard. Undoubtedly, the Department of
Homeland Security has been informed to stop harassing literature
distributors (or at least me).
Informed Jury Distribution of June 29, 2011
I reached the U. S. District Court in Hartford,
CT on June 29, 2011 at 11:43 am. It was a pleasant and sunny
day. There was steady pedestrian traffic. I passed out the
American Jury Institute pamphlet entitled “A Primer for
Prospective Jurors” and “Your Jury rights: True of
False” with my insert on the sidewalk in front of the
Two guards walked by me. Another guard
came and took a pamphlet. He read the pamphlet and returned to
the courthouse. At 12:05 pm, it became slightly windy.
At 12:13 a person gave me some bible gospel
literature in return for my pamphlet. Another guard approached me
and took one of each pamphlet. A fellow came by and asked where
Eric and his dog were. He explained that they usually distribute
these pamphlets. I had no knowledge of this. There are four
Erics who are Tyranny Fighters. I would appreciate it if the
appropriate Eric or his dog would identify himself.
At 12:38 pm, I had passed out all of my 80
pamphlets and returned to my car to find a $25.00 parking ticket.
I had not seen the parking meter which was some distance away and
serviced several parking spots.
