"To seek out that which was lost..."
THE AMERICAN FREEMEN CHALLENGE
THE TRUTH NEEDS NO DEFENSE, IT JUST NEEDS EXPOSURE.
The following affidavit (reproduced for the Internet) was made on April 11th by Brandie Schweitzer (LeRoy Michael, Schweitzer's daughter). As well as being extemeley moving, it is compelling evidence that the United States has tortured Mr. Schweitzer.
To begin this affidavit I learned of my dad's (LeRoy Schweitzer's) arrest on Monday morning, March 25th, 1996. He was taken to the Yellowstone County Detention Center in Billings, Montana. Beginning that same evening through Wednesday the 27th I heard repeated reports of my dad's mistreatment. By "mistreatment" I mean he was being beaten. These facts were affirmed by friends and family members who both saw and talked with my dad on Tuesday and Wednesday. By mutual agreement my three brothers and I decided to travel to Billings and visit with him ourselves.
On Friday the 29th we visited our dad from shortly after 3:30pm to around 4:00pm. During that time we learned that he was not just beaten, but rather tortured. To torture means to inflict or subject to extreme physical pain according to the Funk & Wagnalls Standard Dictionary. He described in detail how the federal marshalls put shackles around his ankles and wrists so tightly that he bled. He said they strapped him in a chair and kicked him in the legs, hit him in the face, grabbed him by his hair and yanked his head around, pushed in on his ears with their fingers until he almost passed out, and pressed on the backs of his finger nails. They turned down the heat in his cell, took his blanket and his mattress and left him in only his T-shirt and pants. I state all of this because in spite of it, he was in very good spirits.
He quoted the law as he often does and recounted the past week's events. He joked with us and asked us if we remembered some of the particular camping trips we went on. He told us that only good would come out of this. He said they would never break his spirit. He kept saying that to them this was a "hot potato" and they didn't want him to keep uncovering all the corruption. He was extremely optimistic, sound of mind, and full of conviction. This was how he appeared to me on Friday afternoon.
On Friday evening around 6:00pm we visited Dad
again. Again he quoted law after law, recalled past events,
explained his reasoning for not allowing them jurisdiction or
granting them venue. He said he felt great. He got excited when
he told us about God providing for him and that this was all in
He said he had faith that God is in control. He talked with two receivers so two of us could talk to him at a time, but his voice was so strong that the two of us without receivers could sure hear him most of the time. We were allowed to visit for close to two hours. He smiled and said he loved us when we were done. He waved to us through the glass divider. This was how he looked on Friday evening the 29th, just before 8:00pm. On Saturday morning around 10:00am I received a phone call from a family member saying that they had moved my dad. I spent most of the day on the phone. I called the Yellowstone County Detention Center, the marshall's office, the F.B.I., the U.S. attorney's office, the governor's office, senator's office, and the U.S. Medical Center in Springfield. Not one person gave me an answer as to what was going on and why we were not notified that Dad was being moved. Sunday March 31st I began to make travel plans to go to Missouri. Monday April 1st I made some more phone calls. I finalized our (my friend, my brother and I) travel plans. When I called the marshall's office we had a conference call with the Medical Center. I was told they wouldn't guarantee that I could get in to see my dad. Tuesday April 2nd we traveled all day. Wednesday April 3rd, four days since I had seen my dad. At around 9:00am I called the Medical Center to ask if my brother and I could visit. We were told we could have an hour visit, granted by the warden. At about 1:45pm we arrived at the Medical Center. After we were "approved" we waited for about ten minutes in the front desk area. Officer Daniels, who supervised us the entire time of our visit, told us that my dad would have an N-G tube in his nose that they used to force feed him. But he told us not to be "shocked", or "alarmed". After we walked through two electric doors we were shown into a room where my dad was standing and waiting. He had an N-G tube hanging out of the left side of his nose. There was white tape across his nose probably for the purpose of holding the tube in place. Dad walked slowly over to a group of chairs where we sat next to each other. He held out his hand to me and I grabbed it. He said hello in a faint, slow voice. He grabbed Scott's hand and said hello. He was dressed in a short-sleeved tan prison suit, with thin blue slippers. For the first few seconds he didn't speak. He just looked at us. He looked at each one of us. He seemed very tired. His eyes were red. He wasn't smiling, he just seemed almost surprised that we were there. He asked us how we found him. He didn't appear disoriented, he simply looked like the last four days had been very rough on him. He told us about the tube in his nose. He explained that he is x-rayed every time they put one in. It goes up his nose and down his throat. It is extremely painful and it hurt him a great deal to talk to us.
But he said they told him if he pulls it out, they'll put a bigger one in. So he said he would leave it in and stand the pain al long as he could. He did not want to be x-rayed anymore. He told us he couldn't believe how corrupt and satanic the system is. Then he held out his arms in a gesture to look at what they were willing to do to a person who threatens to expose their evil ways. It was a sight enough to make you sick to your stomach. But he reminded us that even if they destroyed his body, they would never touch his spirit. Then he added "May God have mercy on their souls." And it was evident that he had seen something truly evil, while the rest of us were kept from knowing all that happened those four previous days. He told us of some of the threats he'd received, such as if he didn't do as he was told, they'd start breaking bones. He said he was visited by a young doctor from New York whose threat was if Dad ever did get released, they could always shoot him up full of cancer first. He looked at Scott and I and said "You don't deserve to live in a system like this." He said "It's very important that the people know I didn't eat." He said he made a vow not to eat or drink until he got a grand jury trial. And he's kept his word. At this time he was obviously having a hard time talking due to the pain of the tube down his throat. He had bruises on the inside of his elbow. I asked him if he had been given any medication. He said "They've stuck me here," pointing to the insides of both of his elbows, "and put an I.V. here," pointing to the top of his hand. He said he didn't know what type of drugs they were using, but he could smell them when they put them through the tube in his nose. He kept talking about the family. He talked about our country and that I was too young to remember how good it used to be, but that if he could help it would be that way again. He said "I love my Country." At the end of our supervised visit it was hard to say good bye. He gave us a long hug and told us he loved us. He looked at us and said "Keep your faith!" He didn't smile, he just looked at us before we were told to leave. We all cried. This is what has been done to my father. I affirm that I am twenty-one years of age, of sound mind, and capable of listing in this affidavit the events which have taken place without the assistance of another. The statements contained herein are true, correct, and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief as of this date, April 11th, 1996.

The Bill of Rights was added to keep the precincts of belief and expression, of the press, of political and social activities free from surveillance.

DATELINE 8th day of the fourth month in the year of Yeshua, the Christ, nineteen hundred ninety-six, A.D., the 220th year after "The Declaration of Independence." Freemen upon the land of Justus township, the republic of Montana, united States of America. Freemen, We the People of Posterity do affirm and uphold in Law, "The Declaration of Independence."
It should be further made known to all Men that this republic, Justus township, Montana state, united States of America, so affirmed in Law is NOT that de facto fiction, the corporation, incorporated in London, England in the year of Yeshua, the Christ, eighteen hundred seventy-one, A.D., the United States, a corporation, so defined as their own Title 28 U.S.C. 3005 (A)(15).
Freemen are NOT a party to the de facto corporate prostitute a/k/a the United States, nor the de facto corporate State of Montana, but are in FACT the Posterity of We The People under God, affirming the Law of the land and standing for the republic for which it stands. Montana state, one of the several states of the united States of America, is in FACT, in Law, that government formed of the People, by the People and for the People. PERVERSION OF THE TRUTH DOES NOT IN FACT CHANGE THE LAW, NOR THE TRUTH.
FREEMEN ARE SUPPORTIVE OF LAWFUL GOVERNMENT!
Those who would prostitute the republic establish in Law, and
substitute de facto incorporated fictions for the lawful
established government and the Law of the land, are in TRUTH and

"The idea of this campaign is very simple. We should get back to the idea that we are a self-governing people. It's the idea of the Founding Fathers. They did not believe that Americans should be dictated to by people in black robes who are MISINTERPRETING THE CONSTITUTION and imposing their own views on society. That's not the idea of the Founding Fathers." Pat Buchanan's speech at a rally in Santa Barbara, California, Sunday, March 24, 1996.

"O thus be it ever when FREEMAN shall stand Between their loved homes and war's desolation Bles't with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!"" ---Francis Scott Key
ASK YOUR REPRESENTATIVE why they are not willing to address the issues, and refuses the FREEMEN forum challenge. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TORTURE.
