January 6, 1988


In the last update, I revealed that George has had unprecedented action taken against him for refusing to submit to a "voluntary" physical exam, which he immediately suspected was a plan to do him physical harm. For punishment, the prison authorities took all is "privileges", and in addition, will not allow him to receive paper, pens and envelopes in the mail. This last restriction is what tipped us off that this is a plan to thwart our progress in taking our appeal to Congress.

Since then, more information has come to our attention, and more action has been taken against us. It has become evident that this siege against George is by order of the Alabama Supreme Court Justice Perry Hooper, a powerful and ruthless man who waged a state and federal campaign to oust his predecessor, and who has two sons in key positions in government -- one son being a state representative. George’s case, and mine, were last ruled upon by the Alabama Criminal Appeals Court, though we had withdrawn or appeals and revoke all documents. According to Alabama law, the State Supreme Court must now rule upon our case, and they are in a quandary; if they refuse the case, then they are admitting that our charge -- that they had no jurisdiction -- is correct, and that the evidence of treason against the American Bar Association is also correct. If the court does take our case, they have no choice but to concur with the lower courts affirmation of are conviction and sentence. Even if they were able to invent some "loophole" to order a new trial or sentencing, they cannot use it because we have withdrawn our appeal, and we both stated this, on the record, before the trial judge, during a hearing the Appeals Court had ordered. In addition, the appeals court judge who wrote the opinion on both our cases, affirming our conviction and sentence, has been charged by us of fraud and treason, the charge to be sent to Congress with our Petition. If the State Supreme Court also affirms, they can also count on being charged with fraud and treason. George, with his brilliant strategy, has put the Alabama Supreme Court in a legal position they've never had to deal with before. The Alabama judges, despite their devious manipulations, had confounded themselves.

Seeing the fix they were in, Hooper ordered a nationally-known Alabama attorney (who we both know personally) to see George, to convince him to file an "official" withdrawal from the Alabama Supreme Court, but George knew it was an attempt by Hooper to trick him. If George filed any document with that Court, he'd be saying that they are a valid court requiring legal notice of his intentions, and our appeal to Congress, providing evidence that the courts are no longer true Constitutional Courts, would be dead on arrival. When it became obvious that George would not fall for this trap, Hooper ordered that the contrived means to box George in be enacted. By taking away the phone, he cannot contact supporters. By taking the ability to buy or receive writing supplies, he cannot write legal documents. They knew George had concerns about its safety and would reject the physical, as before, thus "justifying" the siege. But, if George decided that the need for writing supplies outweighed the physical risk and opted for the exam, he would be killed. This we know. Ether way, he is stopped from handling our legal progress in our appeal to Congress.

Since our mail to each other is read and copied, Hooper found out that George has completed his portion of the Petition to Congress, and I am nearly finished with mine. The actions against us were stepped up. On the same day, we were both charged by officers on false offenses. I was charged with making a false statement about an officer. George was charged with having a "knife" in his cell, when officers "discovered" a piece of sharpened metal in his light fixture. These are both serious charges, and if they had been upheld, they would have provided harmful ammunition for our enemies to show George and me as liars and trouble makers to Congress.

George and I went to work fighting the charges. I found a Supreme Court case which stated that a prisoners opinion of an officer cannot be punished, "under the First Amendment right to free speech. " I wrote it out in a statement attached to the charge, and the warden threw out the charge. George went to the hearing on his charge and made the authorities there admit that, since they had not thoroughly searched his cell prior to his being moved there, they could not say that it was not placed there by a previous occupant. He had them there, and the charge was dismissed. Once again, we foiled Hooper's scheme.

We know that the ABA is serious about stopping us and will try again. But we or are two very stubborn people and will not be deterred. Several of our supporters have been told by authorities to withdraw support or suffer the consequences. The media has attempted to find out the names of the members of Congress who will receive the documents, but we will not reveal their names -- for their protection -- until after all have the Petition in hand.

The burden of writing out the Petition copies to Congress now falls on me, and I must write it out by hand. (The prisoners typewriter has been abolished.) This is about 1500 pages, as each Petition copy contains over 120 pages, and eleven copies must be made.

I have heard it said that George and I have no chance to win this; that "they" are too many and too powerful. George and I are only two, but we know the two-edged sword of politics; put the right information in the hands of the right politically-powerful people to use against their enemies, who are also our enemies, then we two people can turn the corruption upside down. This is why the ABA is so determined to stop us.
