  JULY 25, 1996


(Editor's Note: Because of the amount of controversy that has erupted over
the information released by Patriot Media personalities the following
letter is being released. This letter was written on July 22, 1996, by
LeRoy Schweitzer and Ralph Clark to Randy Scott of Noxon, Montana. The text
of the letter explains to Randy what exactly took place at the now
"infamous" hearings before Judge Burns of Portland, Oregon over the third
week of July 1996. The letter was hand-written and has been typed by Randy
Trochmann (co-founder M.O.M.) for easier reading word for word, spelling
for spelling, emphasis for emphasis.

Following LeRoy's and Ralph's letter to Randy is a statement we received
from U.S. Attorney Sherry Matteucci. Judge Brown's office would not comment
on the hearings.

The "Schweitzer Transcript -- Jul 17, 1996" is available from Michel's
Reporting Service, P.O. Box 20577, Billings, MT 59104 for $45.00. It is
approximately 60 pages for those interested.)

"twenty-second day, seventh month

Dear brother Randy,

The day you were at the visitor's window I had numerous items and family to
review so we did miss our voice transfer of events; nevertheless it was a
grand day of our former tradition in Law, Full well recognized by the
executive bearing officer James M. Burns in our judicial Branch of

If you had not heard it before, James M. Burns stated in open Court quote
`I want the attornies to see the whites of the eyes of the Judges.' There
were six large yellow placards on our bench (table) with our last names ---
somewhat a misnomer but still in compliance with their 'Criminal Justice
Reform' as found In 28 USC & 18 USC 1994 ed., Burns gave a lengthy story of
the Dred Scott cases, a speech by Abraham Lincoln and another quote by
someone on the ignorance of the People is such a waste upon a Nation lying
asleep, he finally asked me to write an Order for release. A seven page
`Protective Order of Release" was done the very next day being served

It is now a recognized fact we are the King's bench in Billings, Montana

The next day Daniel C.; Petersen brought up the fact we would enter a
'Peace Bond' into Court, whereupon the `feds' called a recess and all our
People were brought back to the jail,

Ralph Edwin and William Lee; Stanton were never taken back for any further
lien hearings. By reading the Code sections I have discovered the method to
transfer for want of jurisdiction into our exclusive original jurisdiction,
where no corporation nor attorney can speak We have successfully crossed
this `bar' causing the `feds' to lose their presumption of an action.

I full well expect a timely release,.

The goons never stop their crimes however and did screw up once again by
breaking Dale's thumb, More commercial paper with subsequent bank takeover.
Will they never learn? The former mighty whore of Babylon in its final

Praise our Father Yhvh from whom all Blessings of liberty flow to the
remnant People, We have won through this phase of the battle, now the
magnitude of teaching the lost sheep.

All is well here at the inn; we will be on the other side soon. Keep your
faith, our prayers were heard. with love - - your brothers

  Ralph Edwin and LeRoy Michael"

(Editor's Note: The following is a comment to John Trochmann from the U.S.
Attorney's office, Billings, Montana concerning the hearing.)

"An erroneous misinterpretation as to what occurred in the court room.
There are no plans to release any of the Freemen. We are proceeding with
the trial as scheduled."

(Editor's Note: Calls were made to the U.S. Marshals office requesting any
information on release papers for the Freemen. They stated they had not
receive any release process orders from the court. One last note, the Court
Reporter stated "Judge Burns did not turn over the court to Mr.

With the above letter and comments by the Justice Department our only other
source will be the transcript. However, some will believe the transcript to
be altered from what was really said. If that is the case then you will
have to judge for yourself what really took place.

Our own observation concerning Judge Burns and the hearing has led us to
believe that LeRoy and the rest of the Freemen may be tricked into giving
the court personal jurisdiction. As patriots who have fought their own
battles in the court system can attest to, most judges and lawyers are
willing to do anything they can to get you to grant the court jurisdiction.
We pray that LeRoy keeps his arguments pure and not be tricked.

There has been talk that we now have to wait to see if the court will honor
LeRoy's orders. If LeRoy's perception of the hearing is correct, the court
will honor his directives. If his perception is wrong, then it won't. It's
pretty cut-and-dried. LeRoy is either right in his comment, "It is now a
recognized fact that we are the King's bench in Billings, Montana state,"
or, he is not. Only time will tell.

Concerning the "Certified Money Orders" we have learned that an individual
in Michigan is being charged for fraud using Schweitzer's "Bankers Checks."
What is so interesting about this case is that he is charged for only "half
the amount of the check". He owed the IRS $70,000. The check was written
out for $140,000 with a demand for refund of overpayment. The fraud charge
is for the extra $70,000 and not the $70,000 owed to the IRS-- which they
kept.. The refund demanded from the IRS was in lawful United States Money.
A U.S. Treasury Check is lawful money. What the gentleman from Michigan had
done was send the IRS a Freemen Money Order (a piece of paper), worth
nothing, and asking for substance in return (U.S. Treasury Check); this
constitutes fraud.

We have said it before and we will say it again. If the Freemen are guilty
then so is the Federal Reserve. This is exactly what the Federal Reserve
does every day. It issues paper notes worth nothing to the Federal
(government in return for substance (U.S. Treasury Check or Bond). This is
why the government is dead-broke and in bankruptcy. This is also the reason
why the fruits of our labor (substance) is taxed.

However, two wrongs do not make a right. If the Freemen have accomplished
nothing else, they have accomplished exposing the fraud of the Federal
Reserve by making a mockery out of the entire system it is based upon.

We will continue to watch the hearings and assist in any way we can in
exposing the truth and lies for what they really are.

One last note: As of July 25, 1996 the Freemen who refuse to be
fingerprinted or photographed as part of routine booking in the Yellowstone
County Jail have had all privileges suspended until they cooperate. They
will have no television, no phone calls, no visits and no candy bars from
the canteen until they cooperate according to the jail commander, Capt.
Dennis McCave.

Shame on them for treating Justice's from the King's bench this way!!!
