New Lawyer Wins Bail Concessions for Turner

Brooklyn, NY – (http://family-of-hal-turner.blogspot.com) Changing lawyers has started out well for radio host and blogger Hal Turner. On Thursday, Turner’s new attorney won a significant easing of Bail restrictions that had been placed on Turner since his release from federal prison last October.

Upon posting $500,000 bail, Turner was confined to house arrest, forbidden from going back on the radio or the internet, unable to earn a living, prohibited from talking to the media and from speaking to anyone but his immediate family about his case. Turner suffered these draconian restrictions for five months despite the best efforts of his two attorneys.

When Turner’s second trial ended in a hung jury in early March, Turner announced he was releasing his attorneys so that “a new set of eyes” could take a look at his case, hopefully with better results.

At a Bail Hearing on Thursday, April 8, Turner’s new attorney, Peter Kirchheimer, convinced Judge Donald Walter that Turner should be able to leave his home and work. Judge Walter agreed – kind of.

After hearing government objections which included the government fear that Turner would “be able to express his views directly to people” Judge Walter modified Turner’s terms of release to permit him to leave his home for twelve (12) hours a day, 7 days a week to work. A nighttime curfew still applies.

The judge placed no geographic limitations on Turner, saying “I don’t care where he goes as long as he is back in his home by (a specified time.)”

Assistant US Attorney Diane MacArthur repeatedly argued that Turner was dangerous simply because the government said so, and told the judge “easing the restrictions this way is like having no restrictions at all.” MacArthur went on to tell the judge that the government “. . . . . doesn’t trust Mr. Turner. . . . .” and expressed concerns that Turner could “communicate his views about judges and other views, directly to people” without government control.

Political Prosecution

The argument was quite remarkable because it made clear the case against Turner is political in nature; the Obama administration sees Hal Turner as a threat to their socialistic goals. Turner proved to be the single most effective voice opposing the changes being forced upon America by the government.

At the height of his political effectiveness, Turner single-handedly stopped the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 by publishing the names, home addresses and unlisted home telephone numbers of 63 US Senators who defied the American people by supporting Amnesty for illegal aliens. Turner released the list on his web site during his radio show just twelve hours before the final Senate vote.

Without staff at their homes to intercept (and ignore) constituent calls, Senators were swamped with calls and personal visits to their houses by voters. Twelve hours later, 18 of those Senators - who had supported the Bill just 3 days earlier - changed their votes, sending immigration reform down to crushing defeat.

THE FBI HELPED

What no one knew at the time was that for years prior, Hal Turner had been an Intelligence Operative for the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. Although the official relationship with the FBI ended, the Bureau stayed n touch with Turner and it was the FBI that supplied the home addresses and unlisted home and cellular telephone numbers of those US Senators, to Turner!

The FBI knew from past experience that Turner was willing to publish home address info of government officials. More importantly, a sizeable portion of the FBI did not take kindly to Congress granting another Amnesty to millions of people who broke our laws to come to the United States. Moreover, many in the FBI were outraged that the Senate was ignoring the Will of the American People.

The morning before the final Senate vote, the FBI dropped off a computer USB memory stick to Turner’s home in North Bergen. The memory stick contained the names, home addresses in the home state and secondary addresses for Senators who also had homes around Washington, DC. It also contained the home telephone numbers, secondary home telephone numbers and private cellular telephone numbers of those Senators. Once Turner got the Memory Stick, he knew exactly what to do with it.

That night, during his radio show, Turner talked about the Immigration Reform Bill, outlined how the Senate was ignoring the Will of The People; ignoring literally millions of phone calls, faxes letters and e-mails. Turner then dropped an information-bomb-shell by publishing the private address info on his web site.

In twelve hours, the site got more than 1.4 MILLION unique visits, including over 1,400 visits from computers from “Senate.gov” the official US Senate servers at the US Capitol! It worked. A Tsunami of Constituents called and paid personal visits to the Senators throughout the night. The next morning, 18 of those 64 US Senators had been thoroughly reminded who they work for.

Despite fierce support by the leaders of both political parties in both houses of Congress, and despite support by then-president Bush, the Immigration Reform Bill went down to defeat. Hal Turner made very powerful enemies when he did this.

So devastatingly effective was Turner’s work that no less than the President of the National Council of La Raza, appeared on CNN’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” and blamed Turner BY NAME, for “creating a wave of hate” which defeated the Immigration Reform Bill. A clip of that CNN Video appears below. They quote Hal at 1:53 into the video!

Lately, there’s been talk from the Obama regime about resurrecting Immigration Reform. With Hal Turner sidelined by court restrictions, they might think they can get Amnesty through this time. They should think again. We, the Family of Hal Turner, have the list of home addresses and we will publish that list again if the Congress dares to attempt to pass Amnesty for illegal Aliens again.

In the mean time, we’re pleased to announce that Hal’s new attorney is making progress and thankfully, Hal will be able to leave home and work. We’re not certain if he’ll go back to driving a truck, but whatever he does; at least he has won some freedom back.

BACKGROUND ON THE SITUATION

For those unfamiliar, last June, Hal Turner published an editorial which was critical of three federal Judges in Chicago. The Editorial accused the Judges of violating the Constitution of the United States by upholding a ban on handguns and also accused the judges of ignoring a recent US Supreme Court ruling which overturned Handgun bans.

The editorial went on to call the Judges “traitors” to the United States. Tyrants. It quoted Thomas Jefferson who said “The tree of Liberty must be replenished from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots.” It then said “Let me be the first to say this plainly, these judges deserve to be killed.”

The US Attorney in Chicago claims that saying the judges “deserve” to be killed is a threat to actually kill them. Hal Turner knows that saying someone “deserves” something is an opinion.

The US Attorney charged Hal Turner with “threatening to assault and murder three United States Judges.” Hal was held in federal prison, without bail, for 119 days. He was later released on $500,000 bail.

Hal went on trial on December 1 and the Jury voted 9 to 3 in favor of ACQUITTAL. A mistrial was declared and a second trial took place on March 1, 2010. That second Jury was also unable to reach a unanimous verdict so another mistrial was declared. A third trial was scheduled for April 12, but has now been rescheduled until August 9.

Legal costs and being jailed for four months severely impacted Hal and his family. Being held under house arrest for five more months once he got out on bail drove Hal into Bankruptcy. Such is the price for freedom of speech under the Obama regime.

Spread the word.

  1. That Bitch is a dirty CUNT! La Razza means "For the Race." They hate Whites as well as Blacks. Their(sic)organization promotes the wanton killing of white males over 16....Sounds a bit like what good old King Herod did to try and get Christ.

  2. -while this Court-case constitutes a blatant affront to our precious usConstitutionally affirmed God-given Right to opine against those of which we find offensively anti-American, and stands as an outrage to those understanding that our inherent freedoms are being evermore threatened by the insidious jewZionist political and monetary-tyranny being perpetrated by the seemingly invisible Bank'sters Rothschild & Rockefeller et'al; --we nevertheless appreciate able Trial-attorney Peter'Kirchheimer convincing plea that Judge-Donald'Walter show some modicum of civility by finally easing the absurd house-arrest constraints upon this bright upstanding albeit engagingly outspoken u.s.-citizen Harold 'Hal' Turner; --we look forward to his soon returning to his favorite endeavor as the thorn in the side of the Commies & Corporate-fascists which are presently exploiting their undermining of our frail Republic via their reigning influence over the best usRepresentatives that money can buy...!!!

  3. Hal should simply explain to those obviously illiterate judges that they are confusing two very different Grammatical Moods:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indicative_mood

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperative_mood

    If Hal had said "Go kill those three scumbags!", he would have used the Imperative mood -- and that would have been incitement to perpetration of violence. Instead, Hal used the Indicative Mood, and *stated something* -- a fact or an opinion.

    A statement is not a command. It is just presentation of information -- information, in this case, about Hal's value-based assessment of the three people involved. There is no *urging* involved in a *statement*. Hal should bring a Grammarian of the English language as his witness to the next trial.

  4. Well,Getting out is at least part of the Battle.Now Hal can go "network" again.Has it occurred to him to maybe book some TV or Radio interviews?..nothing like "informing" the public...I think he could go "Mainstream if we swing to the "Right" this time,and WE are fighting for this ! AryanKnight is probably assessing the global situation far more accurately than I but The US is the last stand of Freedom ,no matter how insignificant...a seed only needs a spot to root and a bit of encouragement...Use this time to your advantage .We are all rooting for you and your Family..Godspeed

  6. The stinking bitch knew that Hal was just an internet radio show with a small audience and that if you go to Times Square and ask a thousand people at random who Hal is, you probably won't get one who knows. He has a select audience who understand right from wrong and listgen to Hal for a laugh and to blow off steam.

  7. HAL a THREAT! NO WAY!

    If Hal was a threat to these judges or the public then Judge Walter's would not of consider modifying his bail restrictions. The only threat from Hal Turner is the fact that he is a caring American Citizen who is willing to step up and inform the American People what could happen to them or just to be aware of their surroundings, (which is something the American Government is responsible for)....THAT'S IT!!

    It appears that Assistant US Attorney Diane MacArthur is communicating her opinion (actually the government's opinion per her) that Hal Turner is a threat to the public. It's not even her OWN opinion...Does she know Hal Turner and why doesn't she give her own opinion! She stated an opinion...Oh, isn't that what Hal Turner did! So then,why isn't she getting the same treatment as Hal from the Judicial System. Thought we were all created equal under the US Constitution. So since she works for the judicial systems she is exempt from the same punishment other American citizens are subject to......Guess it is who you are not what you know! If this is a sign that the American People are loosing their rights to state their views, then tell me, why do we vote for a PRESIDENT, SENATORS, CONGRESSMEN, STATE GOVERNORS and MAYORS...we vote them in based on their views to better the US but many of them are actually turn out to be what is know as "SOUR GRAPES" and liars! Many of their opinions are and could be consider threats to the American people..look at how they are destroying AMERICA. Something else to think about..why is the Media and Television allowed to state their opinion where some individual actually get ideas from and carry the out.. isn't this a type of THREAT!

    None of this make sense except that DA Hogan doesn't have anything else to do! Remember, if the 3 judges were truly threaten, them of all people, had the power to seek immediate security protection, but they didn't...so, what is this really saying, NO THREAT ISSUED!

  9. Read this eloquent and profound letter and pay close attention to the last paragraph of the letter...

    The Gun is Civilization

    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.

    In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

    The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

    There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.

    People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

    Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

    People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

    The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.

    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act.


    By Maj. L.C. Audill USMC (Ret)

    So the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally armed and can only be persuaded, never forced.

  10. When posting this letter from the Marine, one of the most important points was omitted.

    It started off by saying " As the Supreme Court hears arguments for and against !!! THE CHICAGO IL. GUN BAN !!!!! I offer you another stellar example of a letter ( written by a Marine) that places the proper perspective on what a gun means to a civilized society.

    This Gun Ban, THIS CHICAGO GUN BAN, is exactly what Hal voiced his OPINION about., SAME GUN BAN, SAME JUDGES, SAME CITY, SAME STATE. How about that !!!!!!!

    It looks like Hal is not the only one objecting to the violation & shreading of our 2nd. Amendment

  11. An Interesting point !!!!!!!!!!!

    IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, "YOU CAN'T BE PROSECUTED FOR NOT DOING SOMETHING,FOR FAILURE TO ACT.." This was quoted by Nancy Grace, a former Prosecutor.

    Hal voiced his opinion. He did not do anything, He did not Act.

    What are these bogus charge really about , AND Who really started this Bull S--T?

    Whoever did this is the Real Criminal.
