Julian Heicklen and Tyranny Fighters battle outrages perpetrated by the U.S. Government


Tyranny Fighters is a group that fights outrages perpetrated by all the U. S. and state governments (federal, state, county, and municipality).

The group has no fixed rules of policy. There is no constitution, bylaws, or rules. It has no officers, no elections, standing committees, nor specific agenda. There are no dues and no formal memberships. Everyone does his or her own thing for freedom and justice. 

Tyranny Fighters is a networking operation. The goal is to return the country to constitutional government.  Julian Heicklen leads Tyranny Fighters, and this is his latest report….

NDAA Demonstation of February 3, 2012

I arrived at the office building of Steven Rothman, Congressman for the 9th Congressional District of NJ, at 25 Main Street, Hackensack, NJ at 12:09 pm on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 12:09 pm.  The office building is across the street from the county courthouse.  Congress Rothman voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which permits the President to confine any persons, including American citizens, on U. S. or foreign soils indefinitely without charges or a trial.

I held a sign which read:





The first letter of each word was colored red and stood for National Defense Authorization Act.  I distributed Bill of rights pamphlets.  There was not much pedestrian traffic, so I only passed out about 20 pamphlets.  However, I did sign up a new Tyranny Fighter.

The office building was on a street with heavy vehicle  traffic.  I stood near a traffic light, so the vehicles had a good opportunity to read the sign when the traffic light was red.  I left the area at 1:30 pm.

Demonstrations against the NDAA are  nationwide and occur every Friday from noon to 7:00 pm in front of offices of congressmen and senators who voted for the act (the vast majority of them).  I intend to be in front of Congressman Steve Rothman’s office at 25 Main Street, Hackensack, NJ across from the Bergen County Courthouse from noon to 1:00 pm.  Please join me or go to your own Congressperson’s or Senator’s office.

Federal Censorship

Censorship by the federal government has increased dramatically in recent years.  Protesters hoping to hold a rally on Friday, January 13, 2012 at the U. S. District Court at 500 Pearl Street in Manhattan, NY against a Supreme Court decision that removed a ban on corporate political spending sought a permit.  The request was denied by the General Services Administration.  The group filed a lawsuit.  Judge Lewis A. Kaplan ruled that the plaza surrounding the courthouse was not a public forum and upheld the decision to deny the permit.

Of course the judge’s decision was wrong, since the plaza is the sidewalk connecting Pearl and Centre Streets. Higher courts have ruled and dictionaries have defined that sidewalks are public forums.  But the group got what it deserved.  Why would anyone request a permit to exercise his First Amendment rights?  By doing so, the protesters admitted that they did not possess those rights.

Federal agencies routinely deny “freedom of information” requests.  The U. S. Government now is in the process of censoring Google and Wikipedia.  The New York Times of February 2, 2012 reports on page A27 that : “…the National Science Advisory board for Biosecurity made an unprecedented request: it asked the editors of the journals Nature and Science not to publish certain details in two papers describing experiments in which scientists created a highly transmissible form of the deadly H5N1 influenza virus in ferrets.”

For years the President and the Democratic Party have been trying to outlaw guns.  However they have failed because of the protection of Amendment II of the U. S. Constitution and the vociferous objection of the gun lobby.  Now the administration has shifted its attempt to outlawing gun ammunition, which is not explicitly mentioned in Amendment II.  If successful, Americans will no longer be able to protect themselves legally against criminals and the U. S. government.  The result will be the same as it has been for outlawing narcotics: an increase in crime, prison population, and use through illegal distributions.

Story of John Thompson (reported by the Innocence Project)

In 1984, John Thompson, a 22-year-old father of two, was wrongfully convicted of two separate crimes, a robbery and murder. While facing his seventh execution date, a private investigator discovered scientific evidence of Thompson’s innocence that had been concealed for 15 years by the New Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office. Thompson was eventually exonerated of both crimes and a jury awarded him $14 million, one million for each year he spent on death row. The state appealed and eventually the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision in Connick v. Thompson ruled that the prosecutor’s office could not be held liable for their misdeeds.

Adam Heicklen & Occupy Wall Street

Adam Heicklen was arrested for filming at the occupy Wall street protest in downtown New York for the crime of “Disorderly conduct” for carrying a 16 mm film camera. During the mass arrest, an NYPD cop took the liberty of attempting to expose his film to light. He does not consider humself an “occupier,” but rather a filmmaker who once believed that this country does permit freedom of the speech and would not put over 700 innocent people into a jail cell for committing no crime. Now his opinions have altered, and he is looking to get even more involved in restoring common sense to this nation.

Although the police claimed to have imprisoned all of them for being on the Brooklyn bridge, he has unedited 16mm film proving it was a line of police who led people from the back of the organized line onto the Brooklyn bridge.  He does not wish to sound like a conspiracy theorist, because the film proves beyond a doubt that his claims are true. Until now the public has only been exposed to the lies and well-edited NYPD video tape of that day. Since the trial for many of the protesters and bystanders is going to begin shortly, he is looking to get this evidence out into the public in a worthwhile manner.

At the episode Mayor Bloomberg remarked that the police were protecting the identities of protesters by forbidding pictures by  a NY Times photographer.

Fund Raising

As you know, both Mark Schmidter and I are involved in legal battles.  We need more money to fight these battles.  Since my arrest in Orlando last August, I have received about $1000 in donations to Tyranny Fighters.  Thank you donors.  This money will help pay the expenses.  However , we can use plenty more for both legal and travel expenses.

Suggested Books

“The Non-Trials” by Julian Heicklen, Ishi Press (2011) discusses his arrest at the Isaiah Wall in Manhattan, NY, in 2007 and the subsequent legal activity. It is now available for $25.95 at Barnes and Noble, amazon.com, and probably other booksellers. Chapter V is a discussion of jury nullification. You should read it and also the Regas brief at: http://1215.org/lawnotes/lawnotes/jurytamp.htm.  I am planning on a book tour for 2011 and am available for book sales and/or speeches at any conventions. Let me know if your organization is interested.

“Actual Innocence” by Barry Scheck, Peter Neufeld (co-founders of The Innocence Project), and Jim Dwyer (a writer for the New York times), a Signet book (2001).

“Ordinary Injustice” by Amy Bach, Henry Holt and Co. (2009). Amy Bach is an attorney and journalist who spent eight years investigating the widespread courtroom failures that each day upend lives across America.

Let’s Get Free by Paul Butler, The New Press, New York (2009)

Michael Badnarik gives a course about the U. S. Constitution using his book “Good to be King.”

Mike Benoit has written a book entitled “Sham and Shame of the Federal Income Tax.” You can purchase it directly from him for five dollars. His E-mail address is in the header of this E-mail.

At some unspecified future date each of you will have a quiz by the U. S. courts on the material in these books.  Failing that quiz will lead to a long prison sentence.

EDITOR’S NOTE: You can now click on the Amazon link in the right column of www.LawlessAmerica.com to buy books and other things on Amazon.  GRIP receives a fee if you buy, and the money is used for petiitoning at the courthouses across America.


The U. S. Congress has just passed a law by overwhelming majorities of both houses that gives the President the authority to have the military arrest and detain indefinitely, without trial, any person suspected of intention to harm the country.  The FEMA camps are being reopened as concentration camps.  When they are overloaded, the genocide will start.

Also, you should know that the Federal Protective Service, and possibly the FBI, is intercepting my E-mails. Another violation of our civil liberties. Be prudent if you write to me.

However a U. S. court recently has ruled that:  If the government wants to see your emails stored by an Internet service provider, they first will have to get a warrant. See: http://www.allgov.com/Top_Stories/ViewNews/ US_Court_Rules_Warrants_Needed_to_Spy_on_Emails_101216



The time is now.  Tomorrow will be too late.  Yours in freedom, justice, and desperation
