Statement by Gary Hunt, Outpost of Freedom, with regard the Freedom of the Press

Statement by Gary Hunt, Outpost of Freedom, with regard to the government attempting to silence the Freedom of the Press

Gary Hunt,
Outpost of Freedom
January 6, 2017

Rumor has it that I was visited by the FBI, yesterday, January 5, 2017. That rumor is true It was not an investigation or an interview. Instead, it was to hand me a letter from the Portland, Oregon, United States Attorney’s Office, signed by Pamela R. Holsinger, Chief, Criminal Division, on behalf of Billy J. Williams. That letter was a Cease and Desist letter.

Today, I told the FBI messenger that I had no intention of complying; that I wanted to look into my legal rights. A few hours later, I was informed by two sources that the government has filed An affidavit, and request  for a court order, and a proposed order wherein they order me to remove my articles with discovery information in them, and refrain from publishing any more discovery information.

This is fast becoming a matter of the First Amendment right of the people to know what their government is doing. This same subject went before the United States Supreme Court, in 1971. That case was “New York Times Co. V. United States 403 U.S. 713”, wherein the Court, in defending the public right to know, stated:

“Our Government was launched in 1789 with the adoption of the Constitution. The Bill of Rights, including the First Amendment, followed in 1791. Now, for the first time in the 182 years since the founding of the Republic, the federal courts are asked to hold that the First Amendment does not mean what it says, but rather means that the Government can halt the publication of current news of vital importance to the people of this country.”

The New York Times prevailed and the government could not restrain the Times from publishing the Pentagon Papers. The matter before us, now, is equally, or more important in that the right of the people to know how the government operates in their private lives, with “spies” reporting everything that they can about what you do, with no criminal intent, to the government.

This is what the KGB did in the Soviet Union. It is what the Stasi did in East Germany. Neither country exists, now, as the police state was not compatible with people used to kings and emperors. It is absolutely unacceptable in a country of free and liberty loving people.

If exposing government spies that spy on the people is criminal, then I confess to that crime. If, however, We, the People, have a right to know what our government is doing, then the Court on Oregon is criminal.

The following documents are the letter and the three filings in the Ammon Bundy, et al, case in Oregon.

    What about FOIA? THAT says it all there. Have you contacted Jay Sekulow? Not sure if I spelled his last name right.

      Such information as I have obtained is not subject to FOIA (Freedom of Information Act). The ‘secret’ information on the Branch Davidian assault has come out through FOIA, slowly, over twenty years. Some has still not been obtained, and there were no informants. The agent that got into the Church admitted his role, publicly, early one.
      The information I have obtained could only be acquired by covert means, just like the Pentagon Papers, over four decades ago.
      It does little good to find out what your government did many years ago, because what they will do in the intervening years will be devastating, if they get away with it.
      This battle will be fought in front of the People.

  3. Vicky Davis says:

    On December 7, 2016, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing titled: Examining the Costs of Over-classification on Transparency and Security. Representative Stephen Lynch questioned the witness concerning the number of Confidential Informants (CIs) employed by the DEA and the FBI and complained about his inability to get any information about the programs from these agencies. What he has been able to find out is that the DEA has approximately 18,000 CIs and it’s costing the taxpayers $237 million per year. The FBI has probably double that number – between 30-40,000 CIs costing the taxpayers probably around $500 million per year.

    He can’t get any information about these programs and the crimes committed by the CIs because they are “field level” programs.

    Representative Lynch should be interested in your information and this attempt by the Justice Dept. to shut you up.

    • ghunt says:

      Perhaps you would be so kind as to forward the information to Representative Lynch.
      I prefer not to solicit help, rather, to accept help, if offered.
      That is among the principles that I have adopted, over twenty years ago, when I began reporting to the Patriot community.

    To whom it may concern:
    Regarding the possession and/or dissemination of documents by Gary Hunt. Myself, as well as many others have a vested and intense interest in the exposing and disseminating of the truth, regardless of the Courts belief in the necessity for secrecy in a case where a jury has found the vindicated ‘ring-leaders’ “not guilty”. Removal of documents published in accordance with the First Amendment protected Right of this website will not remove them from the public domain, nor will such action reflect positively regarding the Federal governments dedication to it’s obligation to protect that Right.

  5. Cyrellys says:

    The Courts should be forced to look at this the same way they cook the goose of the General Population…if you are not guilty of criminal conduct then you have nothing to hide. They get to peer into us and everything we do. The system claims to know more about us than we do about ourselves. So now the table is turned and they’re whining and crying like babies…hmmmm. What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander? What’s that about two different sets of rules…one for society’s elites and one for the general population of slaves?

    The slaves have figured you out and they’ve had their fill…eat crow court system. Duplicate everything and send it viral.

    Please remember that Congress does not like to be looked at either. They can threaten us, inspect and review us, but let the worm turn to them and well.

    In the last 8 years we have seen abuse of power from government and officials like we have never seen before. Time to shorten the leash and remove some of their ability to keep us under foot. The last election has been a indication that others are watching and listening as well.

  7. William Benton says:

    Gary, you have my number if I can be if assistance.

  8. Constitutional Truth says:

    Well, I’m not an attorney (thank the gods) nor do I pretend to be. It would seem that this dog and pony show being perpetrated against you Gary is – like all the rest of them – is built upon a foundation of shifting sand.
    The protective order is rather clear as to whom it pertains; the defendants, their counsel, and those in the employ of same. Nowhere in the Protective Order is it stated, inferred, or implied that possession or dissemination of the protected documents by anyone OTHER than the named persons is specifically prohibited. Hell, it doesn’t even preclude the prosecution from sharing the evidence!
    Bottom line – tough shit Elliot Ness wannabe!
    Here is a reading list for FBI SUPER DUPER Special Agent Ronnie Walker:
    – First Amendment
    – The Protective Order you cite so well
    – First Amendment again
    Char Sines – Constitutional Truth

        I posted it on Facebook although they usually delete my stuff kind of quickly, funny though not my timeline so I just repost. Although the Times is fake news it still is the first amendment, so go for it!
        Semper Fi!
