The problems that Michael Williams has had with the U.S. government make most other people's pale by comparison. Here is his story in his own words.

- Mike/North Central Florida Regional Militia

Are you ready for a taste of justice in modern, fascist Amerika? Well, here goes.

On 18. March 1988, several FBI agents ("America's Gestapo") battered down the door of my Colorado home with an FBI battering ram, shot my 2-year-old daughter's puppy in the head, and proceeded to seize virtually everything my family and I owned. While they were in the process of doing this, they stripped my wife (6 months pregnant) and baby daughter and performed body and cavity searches on both of them in the presence of a room filled with FBI thugs. The had no search warrants for this mob style seizure.

As they had no search warrants, they had no arrest warrants. That didn't stop them from arresting me, kidnapping me, and taking me on a forced "tour" of the entire U.S. prison system while they decided what trumped-up charge to indict me on. It took them about eight weeks to decide to charge me with fraud, their catch-all charge. Now, get this...the fraud: "Presiding over a corporation that was behind in paying some bills for computer paper". (Kinda sounds like a CIVIL matter, doesn't it)?

To make a long story short, I was tortured for two years in the worst prisons in the world, ending up in the infamous Marion, ("Son of Alcatraz"). Why would the feds send an educated man, a corporate president, whom they admitted was "not dangerous at all" to the most maximum security prison there is? Because my REAL "crime" was resurrecting Senator Gary Hart's 1988 Presidential campaign and trying to expose ex-C.I.A. Director George Bush's rampant criminal activity to the American people.

I wasn't meant to survive all the horrible things that were done to me, but I did. I was released in October 1989. That's why the feds call me "George Bush's mistake".

In 1991, as if I hadn't suffered enough, the FBI, acting on the direct orders of George Bush, who was furious that I was free, and (rightfully) expected me to start speaking out against him again, forced me into exile in Switzerland. I have remained here ever since.

From the moment of my illegal arrest, and the illegal seizure of all of my family's property, I have fought continuously to have my property returned to me, in vain. My rights have been violated every inch of the way.

After my "friend", Dianne Feinstein, was elected to the U.S. Senate in California, she pledged, (in writing, no less), to help me. She immediately began writing to the FBI in Washington, DC. After she received a visit from an FBI representative, she suddenly dropped me like a hot potato! She no longer even answers my letters.

At the exact time she received her visit from the FBI, the FBI convinced the U.S. Attorney's Office in Chicago to file a motion in Judge Harry Leinenweber's court, seeking to "legalize" the illegal seizure. Th Notice of Motion was sent to me here in Switzerland by SEA! Not by registered air mail, which would have been proper. (Since when are the feds proper)? They assumed I wouldn't receive the Notice in time, and that they would thus win a quick, easy default judgement.

By sheer chance, I received the Notice at the last minute. Since William J. Stevens, my court-appointed attorney, refused to represent me, I was required to run up an astronomical telephone bill, calling all over the United States from Switzerland, trying to get an attorney to represent me. After sending out more than 10,000 letters, seeking help, and receiving a handful of replies, mostly stating they were terrified to go against the FBI, I had no choice but to use the telephone to try to find an attorney.

My former father-in-law, (the FBI promised to break up my family, and did), Cavanaugh Murphy, assisted me in searching for an attorney, running up his telephone bill from his Florida home. When, together, we found an attorney, he received a threatening call from the FBI. A few minutes later, after leaving his home to hide from the FBI, he was run down by a hit-and-run driver and nearly died. He was in the Tampa Veteran's Hospital for several weeks, recovering. When he was finally released, in a wheel chair, someone was waiting for him. He was beaten up and his wheelchair was stolen. He wound up in the hospital again. After being released from the hospital, he disappeared. (Like Danny Casolaro and Vincent Foster, perhaps)?

The attorney I found, Robert G. Clarke, of Chicago, agreed to ask Judge Leinenweber to appoint him to my case, since I have remained indigent since the seizure of all my property, with my health ruined, to boot. Clarke did ask for a retainer fee for the initial appearance. I gave him all the money I had saved for an operation necessitated by the barbaric torture that was inflicted on me for two years in federal prison. He assured me he had never heard of William J. Stevens.

After receiving my money, Clarke disappeared...seemingly from the face of the earth. He didn't answer his telephone, he didn't return my answering machine messages, registered letters I sent him were returned, marked "unclaimed". He just ignored me and avoided me completely.

Then, at the hearing in Judge Leinenweber's court, Clarke stood mute as Leinenweber (currently a suspect in a major bribery scandal) said of me: "That revolutionary's been on the loose for six years, and I'm gonna put an end to it now". With that, the "honorable" Harry Leinenweber, U.S. District Judge for the Seventh Circuit, granted the FBI's motion to "legalize" the illegal seizure of everything my family owned.

I finally got through to Clarke after the kangaroo court hearing, and he assured me he had filed a Notice of Appeal. He refused to represent me on the appeal unless I gave him a huge fee and admitted that not only did he KNOW William J. Stevens, he serves on the same PANEL as him.

So, abandoned by an attorney who had intentionally sabotaged my case, I had no choice but to file a motion for appointment of counsel. The motion was denied! I was forced to represent myself "in pro se" on a federal appeal, even though I am not an attorney!

I soon discovered that Clarke had not filed a Notice of Appeal, but had lied to me. I was forced to file my own Notice of Appeal.

The average appeal in the Seventh Circuit lasts 40 days. Mine has been going on for about three years. They say "justice justice denied". I've been denied justice for almost a full decade.

On 22. March 1996, I sent a motion to Judge Leinenweber via registered air mail, requesting that he order transcripts to be provided to me which he had provided to the U.S. Attorney/FBI. They had quoted generously from the transcripts, which I have never received, and I have a legal right to receive a copy of everything the U.S. Attorney subpoenas and receives.

On 27. March 1996, my motion arrived in Judge Leinenweber's court. The same day it arrived, rather than granting the motion, the U.S. Court of Appeals suddenly decided to DENY my appeal in its entirety! I received the Notice from the court this afternoon. The court said my appeal had no merit and they weren't even going to address the issues I raised in my appellate brief.

The court also ordered that their decision NOT BE PUBLISHED! Normally, such decisions are published, even on a Web page on the Internet the court maintains. They do not want the public to see the great travesty of justice they've presided over, trampling over my Constitutional rights as if they were in Soviet-controlled Bulgaria, not the "Land of the Free", the "Bastion of Democracy", America, our dear, beloved "democratic" America.

I now need to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court by Writ of Certiorari, and I don't know the least about preparing such a document. I desperately need an attorney to assist me with this.

As if this isn't strange enough, on 15. March 1996, I filed a 41 (e) Motion/Civil Rights suit in the U.S. District Court in Denver against FBI Special Agent in Charge, Richard "Rick" Loyd, (who led the illegal raid on my home in 1988), the unnamed FBI agents who participated in the illegal raid, Janet Reno and the U.S. Government. The case was immediately ordered sealed by federal court order. The court clerks aren't even allowed to discuss it with me, the Plaintiff!

The present government of the United States amounts to nothing less than a full-fledged Nazi-style fascist dictatorship. It is a crazed swine, wallowing in the mud of its iniquities. It is a gargantuan monster, created by monsters like George Bush, Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, Oliver North, Caspar Weinberger, and Bill & Hillary: the Clinton Crime Family. There is no justice in America today. Read the writing on the wall: O.J. Simpson is playing golf, while his legendary attorney, F. Lee Bailey, is rotting away in federal prison. America is no longer the "Land of the Free". It is the "Land of Prisons".

I have fought for justice for nearly a decade. Each and every one of my Constitutional rights have been violated. Plus my civil human rights...all of my rights. As I wrote in my book, "In Defence of My Honour"....."Americans have more rights than anyone else in the world....UNTIL THEY NEED THEM...then, they have none at all".

There are two Constitutions in today's America. One is written. It is for the rich, powerful and politically well-connected. The other is unwritten. It is for the rest of us. The FBI had to MAKE me an indigent so I could not afford a high-powered attorney, who would have gotten the ludicrous false charge against me dismissed. By doing this, they violated my Constitutional rights to competent counsel of my choice, my right not to be subjected to illegal searches and seizures, or cruel or unusual punishment, my right to Due Process of Law, and my right to not be subjected to Double Jeopardy.

Someone recently told me I have been "raped and pillaged" by the fascist, criminal-run U.S. government. If I were to tell you who that person is, you would not believe me, so I won't even mention his name. Let it suffice to say he has spent more time in the Oval Office than Bill Clinton is going to, even if the American people are ignorant enough to re-elect him, when he more than deserves to be impeached, tried and convicted of his many crimes, including MENA...that's the word that I understand has been barred from Terry Reed's trial in yet another kangaroo court.

My appeal has been denied. My health has been destroyed. A few days ago, I was taken to the hospital emergency room, where I had to be given nitroglycerine in order to save my life. My life is now totally dependant on my doctors. They have warned me that I have two choices: I can stop fighting the fascist U.S. government in their corrupt courts, where I have no chance of ever receiving any justice, or I can continue to fight...and die.

Can you imagine that? A man has to DIE fighting for justice in America? Must I die in order to be the one man who stands up to these demonic, power-crazed maniacs? I have sworn to fight them to my last drop of blood and my last breath of air, so I may, indeed, die fighting. Better to die as a hero than live as a coward.

Angry and Defiant,

MICHAEL WILLIAMS victim of U.S. injustice ----End Forwarded Message(s)----
