FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
18 March 2017 Contact: CSPOA
The Freedom Coalition announces "National Timeout Day" to free political prisoners in the US. The Freedom Coalition (www.thefreedomcoalition.com) is a nationwide group of professionals and average Americans who have united to call for the release of many people who are currently in prison or who have been victimized by federal bureaucracies for violating unlawful regulations and rules that have not been passed by congress.
The original open letter to President Trump, Congress, the Attorney General, and other authorities, along with the list of Coalition members, which include congressmen, Judge Andrew Napolitano, and others, may be found on the Coalition website.
According to today's official announcement of the National Timeout Day, "The People of America are hereby calling for a National Timeout Day for April 1, 2017 (No Fooling!) a day when all politicians and the media, and all Americans stop talking about Russia, Health Care, Wiretapping, Tax Returns, Immigration, or which leader is lying, and focus on one issue; returning jailed innocent Americans to their families!!!"
The announcement also lists several of the people that need to be freed. One example is:
"Sam Girod, an Amish farmer in Kentucky, has been fending off the FDA for five years. He was recently arrested and now sits in a federal prison. What was his crime? Sam Girod actually made a healing salve out of Chickweed and shared it with people in need. He was stripped from his family and now faces life in prison!
Donations to defray costs of lobbying Congress may be made on the website also.
Action Requested: Open Letter to President Trump
We hope you will sign and send the following letter to President Trump on behalf of the freedom coalition and our neighbors we are working so hard to free. You may copy and paste the below or find a link to the document below, available for download. Thank you all for your support in this critical effort.
Dear President Trump,
I hereby request your immediate assistance and intervention in putting a stop to the injustices befalling numerous Americans, who are now in prison as a result of out-of-control federal regulations. These victimized Americans have not committed any crimes, have harmed no other human being, and are good honest people. It appears that their only offense has been to offend federal bureaucrats, who have in turn done all in their power to make examples of otherwise law-abiding citizens. Mr. President, I respectfully request that you do everything within your power to put an end to these senseless and cruel atrocities. A brief review of only a few of these injustices are as follows:
In November 2016 two Kansans -- Shane Cox and Jeremy Kettler - were convicted of alleged federal firearms violations in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas in Wichita. The charges against Cox and Kettler were in conflict with the State's Second Amendment Protection Act, upon which these citizens relied. Their prosecutions were initiated by the U.S. Department of Justice during the administration of President Obama and they have now been convicted of felonies yet have broken no laws.
Steve and Dwight Hammond from Burns, OR, were charged with "Domestic Terrorism" for burning debris and foliage on their family ranch. They were convicted, spent about a year in prison, paid a $400,000 fine (raised by their neighbors, fellow ranchers, and friends) and were then released. The judge said the charges against them "shocked the conscience of this court." The federal gov't appealed their "light" sentences and the Ninth Circuit sent these good people back to prison, essentially giving Dwight Hammond, now 76 years old, a life sentence. Both men went to prison twice for the same offense.
Sam Girod, an Amish farmer in Kentucky, has been fending off the FDA for five years. He was recently arrested and now sits in a federal prison. What was his crime? Sam Girod made a healing salve out of Chickweed and shared it with people in need. He was stripped from his family and now faces life in prison!
53 ranchers in Clarke County, NV, have all been run out of business and their lands and cattle confiscated by the BLM, U S Forest Service, and Obama executive orders, completely violating the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. (Victims are Americans of all races and colors)
Kenneth Wright had his home raided and ransacked in Stockton, CA by the Dept of Education SWAT Team, because his estranged wife failed to pay back her student loan. He did not go to prison, but was placed in a hot patrol cruiser for 6 hours while the SWAT team raided his home to "search for evidence." This federal SWAT mentality (Dept of Ed.) has got to stop.
Such arrests and abuses are the result of bureaucrats creating criminals. If America is to be great again, as you have pledged, then this cannot continue. Mr. President, we implore you to grant pardons to these people and restore them to their families. Thank you for your time on this critical matter.
