On or about June 2, 2009, and June 3, 2009, in the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, and elsewhere, HAL TURNER, defendant herein:

threatened to assault and murder three United States judges with intent to retaliate against such judges on account of the performance of official duties;

AFFIDAVIT

I, John Marsh, being duly sworn, state as follows:

1. I am a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and have been so employed for almost three years. My current responsibilities include the investigation of violent crimes, including, among others, kidnapping, bank robbery, and the apprehension of violent fugitives.

2. This affidavit is submitted in support of a criminal complaint alleging that Hal Turner (“TURNER”) has violated Title 18, United States Code, Section 115(a)(1)(B). Because this affidavit is being submitted for the limited purpose of establishing probable cause in support of a criminal complaint charging TURNER with threats to assault and murder a United States judge with intent to retaliate against such judge on account of the performance of official duties, I have not included each and every fact known to me concerning this investigation. I have set forth only the facts that I believe are necessary to establish probable cause to believe that the defendant committed the offense alleged in the complaint. This affidavit is based on my personal knowledge and on information provided to me by other law enforcement agents.

FACTS SUPPORTING PROBABLE CAUSE

3. As part of this investigation, I have learned that after the Supreme Court concluded in District of Columbia v. Heller, 128 S. Ct. 2783 (2008), that the Second Amendment entitles handguns at home for self-protection, several suits were filed challenging similar handgun bans in Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois. On June 2, 2009, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued an opinion in National Rifle Association v. Chicago, Nos. 08-4241, 08-4243 & 08-4244, affirming a district court's decision to dismiss the cases challenging handgun bans in Chicago and Oak Park. The Seventh Circuit Court's decision was written by Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook and was joined by Judge Richard Posner and Judge William Bauer.
Turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com

4. On or about June 8, 2009, law enforcement was directed to an entry for an Internet posting on the website turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com. FBI agents visited the website with the domain turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com. At the top of the website was the heading, “Turner Radio Network,” below which an address was listed. The address, which was identified as a “Postal Mailing Address,” was “1906 Paterson Plank Road, North Bergen, NJ 07047-1900, USA.”

5. The front page of the site contained an entry dated June 2, 2009, that was titled, "OUTRAGE: Chicago Gun Ban UPHELD; Court says ‘Heller' ruling by Supreme Court not applicable to states or municipalities!" After describing the Seventh Circuit's June 2, 2009, decision in National Rifle Association v. Chicago, the entry read:

The federal Judges at both the District Court and now at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals have intentionally ignored the common language of the Second Amendment and have now intentionally ignored a clear ruling by the US Supreme Court on the matter.

All the years of peaceful legal challenges; all the years of peaceful appeals; all the years of peacefully and lawfully lobbying federal and state legislators, to achieve the penultimate goal of finally interpreting the meaning of the Second Amendment, only to have it all thrown in the trash by three Appellate Judges in a manner so sleazy and cunning as to deserve the ultimate response.

This is what happens folks, when YOU play by the rules. Government does not.

This is what happens when YOU have faith in the system. The government laughs at your blissful ignorance.

This is what happens when YOU believe the government is honorable. Our present government is not.

The government - and especially these three Judges - are cunning, ruthless, untrustworthy, disloyal, unpatriotic, deceitful scum. Their entire reason for existing is to accrue unto themselves, power over everything.

The only thing that has ever stood in the way of their achieving ultimate power is the fact that We The People have guns. Now, that is very much in jeopardy.

Government lies, cheats, manipulates, twists and outright disobeys the supreme law and founding documents of this land because they have not, in our lifetime, faced REAL free men willing to walk up to them and kill them for their defiance and disobedience.

Thomas Jefferson, one of our Founding Fathers, told us "The tree of liberty must be replenished from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots." It is time to replenish the tree!

Let me be the first to say this plainly: These Judges deserve to be killed. Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty. A small price to pay to assure freedom for millions.

This is not the first politically-motivated trash to come out of the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In fact, it was the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that decided in the Matt Hale Case, that a group which fraudulently trademarked the name "World Church of the Creator" despite the fact they knew that name had been used by a Church for 30 years, could KEEP the name because the church who had used it for 30 years didn't challenge the Trademark filing!

By not challenging the Trademark registration, the people who had used the name for years LOST IT.

That decision lead to an order by a lower court for the Church to "surrender its Bibles for destruction because they infringed on the trademark" given to the fraudsters.

Shortly thereafter, a gunman entered the home of that lower court Judge and slaughtered the Judge's mother and husband. [1] Apparently, the 7th U.S. Circuit court didn't get the hint after those killings. It appears another lesson is needed.

These Judges are traitors to the United States of America. They have intentionally violated the Constitution. They have now also intentionally ignored a major ruling by the US Supreme Court.

If they are allowed to get away with this by surviving, other Judges will act the same way.

These Judges deserve to made such an example of as to send a message to the entire judiciary: Obey the Constitution or die.

6. On June 3, 2009, at 8:57 a.m., the entry described above was updated. Below the above text, it read: “Judges official public work addresses and a map of the area are below. Their home addresses and maps will follow soon. Behold these devils." Below this headline, the entry listed a name, photograph, phone number, and the work address and room number of the three Seventh Circuit judges involved in the decision. Following this information about the judges, the entry displayed a picture of the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago, Illinois, the location of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh

Circuit, along with a map depicting the location of the Dirksen Federal Building. The picture of the Dirksen Federal Building contained the label, “Anti-truck bomb barriers,” from which arrows pointed to three different parts of the building.

7. I have confirmed that the photographs, phone numbers, work addresses, and room numbers of the three Seventh Circuit judges are accurate.

8. Also posted on turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com was an entry dated June 3, 2009, and titled, “Another Abortion Target Volunteers.” Below this heading was the following text:

After the killing of abortionist George Tiller, another "doctor" has publicly announced he wishes to take Tiller's place to continue partial birth abortions!

Physician [Name] of Omaha, NE wants to continue providing third-term abortions after the brazen slaying of his friend and colleague George Tiller.

Gee, this is becoming a "target-rich environment!"

I suspect someone has a bullet for this guy too. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

9. FBI Agents searched the archived history of the website Turner radionetwork.blogspot .com. Within the archived history of Turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com was an entry dated February 20, 2009, titled, "Fucking Federal Judges Never Learn - but I hereby WARN one of them." The entry addressed a Judge of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey concerning a temporary restraining order issued against a company in a lawsuit for discriminatory hiring practices:

Well, I've got news for the latest federal Judge, [Name] and the NAACP concerning this latest hiring freeze spawned by the latest lawsuit: if your actions kill more people, don't expect to walk away unscathed this time.

I don't give a shit about sovereign immunity or the US Marshal Service that protects federal judges. I don't give a shit about laws preventing retaliation against parties to a judicial proceeding. I don't give a shit about US Attorneys bringing Indictments against me or securing court orders against me, because they won't be worth the paper they're written on.

Know now: the days of politically-correct Judges and race-hustling, poverty pimps in the NAACP causing people's deaths without consequence, are over.

The course of action taken by the Judge and the NAACP will, at some point, endanger my life, the lives of my family and the lives of tens-of-thousands of other Hudson County residents. We have an absolute right to defend ourselves -- and this time, we will.

This time, if people die, the people responsible will either be brought to justice or justice will be brought to them.

10. Also within the archived history of Turnerradionetowrk.blogspot.com was a post dated January 4, 2009, titled, “Add 2 More Judges to the ‘Rope List.’” In reference to a January 4, 2009, decision by the Indiana Court of Appeals that attempted sexual misconduct with a minor requires that the victim actually be a minor, the entry states, “You folks in Indiana who have been planning with me for our national cleansing of government filth - scheduled for the not-to-distant future - had better go out and buy more rope. It appears we have to add two more Judges to a list of filth that needs to ‘swing.'"

11. FBI Agents also searched the archived history of the website halturnershow.blogspot.com. At the top of the website is the heading, “Hal Turner Show,” below which an address is listed. The address, which is identified as a “Postal Mailing Address," is “1906 Paterson Plank Road, North Bergen, NJ 07047-1900, USA.”

12. Posted on halturnershow.blogspot.com was an entry dated January 25, 2009, and titled, “A Tyrant in Garrison, NY.” Below this heading was a post about a judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The entry included the following statements:

If Judge [Name] fails to start obeying the Constitution, she would do well to remember what happened to another federal Judge that I chose to heap scorn upon: US District Court Judge [Name] in Chicago. After I heaped scorn upon her, someone went to her house and gunned down her family.

...Oh and if you dare try to do anything at all about MY freedom of speech in undertaking these activities, be warned: I will enforce my First Amendment freedom by making swift and effective use of my Second Amendment freedom. The only thing you have to ask yourselves is whether or not you're willing to be on the wrong end of the Second Amendment when my finger is on the trigger. Be assured that I will not hesitate for even a fraction of a second to defend my freedom.

13. Based on statements contained in the entries on June 2, 2009, and June 3, 2009, about Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook, Judge Richard Posner, and Judge William Bauer of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, I submit to the Court that the entries constitutes a threat to assault or murder a United States judge with intent to retaliate against such judge on account of the performance of official duties. I base that conclusion in part on:

a. the statements contained in the entry about the judges, including: Let me be the first to say this plainly: These Judges deserve to be killed. Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty. A small price to pay to assure freedom for millions.

...[A] gunman entered the home of that lower court Judge and slaughtered the Judge's mother and husband. Apparently, the 7th U.S. Circuit court didn't get the hint after those killings. It appears another lesson is needed.

If they are allowed to get away with this by surviving, other Judges will act the same way.

These Judges deserve to made such an example of as to send a message to the entire judiciary: Obey the Constitution or die.

b. the inclusion of the judges’ photographs, phone numbers, work addresses and room numbers, along with photograph of the building in which they work and a map of the building’s location; and

c. the reference to the murder of the mother and husband of a United States District Court Judge in the Northern District of Illinois, along with the statement that “it appears another lesson is needed.”

Tracing the IP Address

14. Using the web site www.domaintools.com, law enforcement agents performed a "whois" search for the domain name turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com. A "whois" search provides publicly available information as to which entity is responsible for a particular domain name. The search results indicated that the domain name turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com is registered with Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043.

15. Records obtained from Google Inc. disclose that the blog associated with the domain name turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com was registered on January 6, 2006. The email address for the registration was secret12@optonline.net, which was an email address provided by Optimum Online, 111 Stewart Avenue, Bethpage, NY 11714. The records also reflect that between January 2, 2009, and January 3, 2009, of the logins to the 9 blog account associated with the domain name turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com, thirty-five came from the IP address 68.192.126.181.

16. Law enforcement agents then performed a "whois" search on www.domaintools.com for the IP address 68.192.126.181. The search result indicated that the IP address 68.192.126.181 was allocated to Optimum Online, 111 Stewart Avenue, Bethpage, NY 11714, an ISP. Records obtained from Optimum Online disclose that between June 2, 2003 and June 3, 2009, the IP address 68.192.126.181 was assigned to Phyllis Turner, 1906 Paterson Plank, Apt. 1A, North Bergen, NJ 07047-1900. The subscriber used the same address for billing.

17. On or about June 22, 2009, an FBI agent searched Accurint, a database of public records, for information relating 1906 Paterson Plank, Apt. 1A, North Bergen, New Jersey, which reported that HAL TURNER and Phyllis Turner currently reside at that address.

Interview of Turner

18. On June 24, 2009, FBI Special Agent Mark Wallschlaeger interviewed TURNER at 1906 Paterson Plank, Apt. 1A, North Bergen, New Jersey. TURNER said that he drafted and posted all of the entries on turnernetwork.blogspot.com, including the entries of June 2, 2009, and June 3, 2009, about Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook, Judge Richard Posner, and Judge William Bauer of the United States Court of10 Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. TURNER told Special Agent Wallschlaeger that he did not intend to injure the judges but believed he would be criminally responsible if someone reading his website acted on what he posted to his website.

CONCLUSION

19. Based on the above information, I submit there is probable cause that on or about June 2, 2009, and June 3, 2009, TURNER threatened to assault and murder three United States judges with intent to retaliate against such judges on account of the performance of official duties, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 115(a)(1)(B).

FURTHER AFFIANT SAYETH NOT.

Hal Turner Emergency Message from Prison
26 June 2009, MP3 link HERE

“All right, yeah. This is Hal Turner. I guess it is Friday, June 26th, and I am calling from inside the Essex county jail, in Newark, New Jersey. I want to give you guys a quick update, on the inside scoop, or the “going ons” of my case. And to let you know that I REALLY, REALLY need your help. The charges that were filed against me are 100% ABSOLUTELY false. At no time, did I personally EVER threaten to hurt anybody. And the words that are printed in the complaint against me PROVE that I never said, that I personally was going to do any of those things. I based my writings on five separate US Supreme court cases. The cases are Brandenburg Vs Ohio, which says that advocating crime and violence is lawful, except if you are right in front of a target where people might be [next word garbled in recording] “Imminent lawlessness”.

In the next case that covers what I wrote, in protected Free Speech, a case called “Indiana Vs. Hess”. And that case said, that remarks designed that could case violence, if they are NOT DIRECTED TOWARDS A CLEARLY INDENTIFIABLE GROUP WHO MIGHT COMMIT VIOLENCE, those remarks were also protected.

Next case, “NAACP Vs. Claiborne Hardware”. It was from 1982. The court ruled that people who make speeches can’t just always communicate in calm docile tones. They have to be engaging to the audience. They have to you know get the audiences attention. And that is what I did with my writings. So I am TOTALLY CONFIDENT, that everything I said, was with in the meaning of the law, based on those Supreme Court cases, and I am confident that we can defeat this case. But it is going to cost a FORTUNE. A fortune, to battle the Federal Government of the United States. And I need your help.

There is a problem between me and my family. All the pressure of these arrests, and all the pressure of the years of publicity, have put my wife in a situation where she and I are not working as a team any more. I am absolutely on my own. And so without your help, there is no way I can get out of jail. They want like $200,000 bail. Without your help, there is no way I can get out of jail. My own defense. You guys have my home address.

Hal Turner
1906 Paterson Plank Rd.
North Bergen, NJ 07047

I am begging you. Please help get me out of jail.

Please send what ever cash check or money order you can, to my wife Phyllis Turner. Now the studio line 1-201-484-0060 is still working. But I am not sure if we will be able to keep the server up. So it might go down on its own in the next couple of days. But if we can get some money in here, we can keep it up and keep you guys abreast of what is going on.

I am not cut out for this folks. You know, I am Mr. Internet tough guy and all, but I have to tell you, I am not cut out for where I am. The police department, the US Marshals have me in protective custody, because I am in Essex Country jail, and I am pretty much the only white guy in here. And what that means is that I get 23 hours locked up inside my cell, an 8’ x 12’ cell alone with nothing to read, nothing to watch, and nothing to see. I am allowed out to take a shower, and to get exercise for like half an hour a day. And that is it. That is my day. And I am not cut out for this disconnect from society, this discontinuance from life. So I don’t know how this is going to go. I mean I am not going to do anything stupid right. But, I will just give you for instance, when they took my blood pressure this morning it was 140 over 120. So I am like 10 digits away from a stroke or heart attack. And if that happens, it happens. But I need your help, and I am asking you to please help.

I also want to point out that there are big differences between my case and the case involving Bill White from the NSM. On the ANSWB. Unlike Bill White, I NEVER personally communicated to any individuals. Unlike Bill White, I NEVER sent written communications to any individuals. And unlike Bill White, I never made communications to any individual regarding personal matters the way he did with his credit bureau report or whatever. So the charges against Bill White, and the charges against me are the same, but the circumstances between the two cases are very, very different. And that is why, that is one of the big reasons, that I have an excellent chance of beating this thing. But I can’t do it without your help.

It is going to costs tens of thousands of dollars to get lawyers in Chicago. US Marshals service is probably going to take me to Chicago some time with in the next couple of days. I don’t know. I have no control over it, and I won’t be able to talk to you probably ever again.

Oh incidentally, one final thing, you know how James Wickstrom always says you only “only take flak when you are over enemy territory?” I want to prove to you that this whole thing was designed to shut me up. The conditions of my release on bail, if I am able to get the bail, the conditions of my release are, I have to stay in the house under house arrest with electronic monitoring. I am not allowed to even LOOK at the Internet. I can not serf the web, and nobody in my family can surf the web. The court would install monitors on their computers to make sure they can’t surf the web. I am not allowed to be on the radio, or host my own radio show. And I must surrender any radio broadcasting equipment that I own including Short Wave Radios, so that I can not be heard by the public.

These are the terms that were set out by the assistant United States attorney in the US District Court in Newark New Jersey yesterday when I went for my arraignment. So clearly, they are terrified of the information that I have been giving out. And I want to tell you one final thing. The FBI agent that raided the house on Wednesday, guys, one of my agents his name is Dan Bruner he is from the FBI in Newark in New Jersey. Then there is Kimberly F. middle initial F. last name is Mogowitz or Mogohoewitz it is some Pollock name like that. And then another agent came out from Chicago his name was Mark Wallschlaeger or something like that. It is on the search warrant. And I am going to ask my people to scan that search warrant, and post it up on the Web so you guys can see the guy's name. All of those agents said to their bosses on their phones, in front of me, we DON’T have PROBABLE CAUSE to arrest this guy. This guy is harmless. In fact Wallschlaeger, Mark Wallschlaeger, what ever his name is, from Chicago, argued with his bosses at the FBI for over an hour saying he did not want to arrest me, because he did not have probable cause. And he was not only ORDERED to arrest me, but he was told that if he didn’t arrest me, that he would lose his job.

This prosecution of me is 100% political. It has to do with the sensitive information that I have been releasing. About the collapse of the United States dollar as a currency. How the nation of Japan sent two employees from its finance ministry across the border from Italy to Switzerland, to try to quietly dump US bonds, because the government of Japan doesn’t believe that our country can pay off it's debt anymore. And so what has happened, is by virtue of me, exposing all this stuff, the Federal Government of this country has trumped up charges against me. Charges they KNOW are FALSE, based on those Supreme Court case laws that I talked about earlier. And they have done this, to try to make sure that I can not talk to you.

Now I am going to reach out to Jim Wickstrom, and to Paul Geller, and to Derrick MacThomas down in Australia, and I am going to ask them, to please take over and take control of the Turner Radio Network. I want that web site to stay on line. I need those shows to stay on line. I need you guys to support them. To keep those things running. Because if the government of this country is so frightened, by what is being broadcast there, that it has to continue.

Folks, I do know if I will ever get to talk to you or see you again. And I don’t know if I will ever get to see my family again. But Freedom and Truth are worth fighting for. (Automated voice interrupts call and says, “The Jail administration will disconnect your call in 5 minutes.”) “Freedom and Truth are worth fighting for. And if I have to give my life to fight for Freedom, then here it is. Take it. I am Hal Turner. Goodbye.”

 

Hal Turner message from prison dated Monday 29 June, 2009, as reported at the New Nation News blog.

Hal's site is to close under conditions of his bail but a blog has been set up by his family and the address is below. This is the latest from his site. More to this than meets the eye?............. I would absolutely bank on it..

Hey, folks! It's Hal Turner. It's Sunday, June 28, 2009. This is probably the last communication I’m going to be able to make from the Essex County Jail here in Newark, NJ. I've been jailed in Protective Custody on account of the U.S. Marshals because I'm the only non-Hispanic White guy in the prison. So, they figured it'd be better if they put me here; and what that means is: for the last five or six days, I have been in a cell, alone, for 23 out of 24 hours a day. During the hour that I’m allowed to come out, I can take a shower or I get to walk up and down a 50-foot long by 8-foot wide hallway. Some of the other people that are in the other cells seem pretty decent, but only one person is allowed out at a time. So, when I’m out, they're all locked in their cells and vice versa. This has been a very difficult thing. It's been very isolating, and very degrading.

If all goes well, I should be out on bail Monday or Tuesday. A lot of folks are working real hard to get me out of here. We need to raise money. We need to raise $20,000 to pay for a $200,000 bail bond. It's going to cost me 5,000 dollars to hire a lawyer for this Federal charge in Chicago. There's a lot of support out there, both within the legal community (other lawyers contacting my lawyer, Michael Orozco) and constitutional scholars who seem to feel that the federal government grossly overstepped itself. We're probably going to win. But, in order to even engage in this fight, we're going to have to raise 25,000 dollars. I know this is not your problem. I'm the one they arrested. I'm the one they charged. But the implications of this case apply to you. If you have a blog, a myspace page, a facebook page, a twitter page and you say something in your home state on your webpage that someone in another state doesn't like...If I lose my case, those people in those other states will get to haul you into court in their state for pissing them off.

For those of you who aren't sure of what happened, on June 2nd and 3rd, I wrote my opinion of a Federal Appellate Court ruling from the 7th Circuit in Chicago; and in my opinion I talked about three specific judges who I will not mention now. I quoted Thomas Jefferson, the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence. I talked about the "Tree of Liberty" having to be “replenished” from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots. Well, the U.S. Attorney in Chicago feels that quoting Thomas Jefferson was a death threat. I know it's ridiculous. You know it's ridiculous. But he's got the power, and I’m in jail. So that’s the crux of the case; and that's what we have to fight. So, if you guys are willing to stand up for my free speech, my case can stand up for your free speech. I'm asking you to throw $5, $10, $20 in an envelope--50 or 100 if you can...some of you have sent $500 and I’m very grateful. You can send cash, check, or money order to Phyllis Turner, 1906 Paterson Plank Road, North Bergen, NJ 07047-1900.

It appeared to me the other day that my wife would not use the house to bail me out. But it turns out the lawyer told her that when a wife uses the house to bail out her spouse, if the spouse is convicted, the government can seize the house for the fine! So I'd be in jail and my wife and kid would be homeless! We don't want to have that happen, right? It probably won't; but we don't want to have that happen. That's why she wouldn't put the house up. She's a good, smart girl for doing that and I love her to pieces.

As a part of the arrangement to get me bailed out, I have to shut off the Turner Radio Network Web Server and I have to stop doing the Hal Turner Show. I also can't be on the internet, on the radio, or any of that stuff. Maybe, at some point in the future, we'll be able to modify these terms; but for now, the stuff all has to get shut off. So, my mom has established a Blogspot. The address of the blogspot is http://family-of-hal-turner.blogspot.com. If you want to send my mom an email, send it to family.of.hal.turner@gmail.com. Basically, I'm not going to be able to be out in the public eye anymore. I’m not going to be able to talk to you via email because I don't have internet access. I'm also not going to be able to do interviews with the media. This is probably the last message you're going to hear from me. You're going to have to do any communications about this with my mom. The address of the Blogspot again is http://family-of-hal-turner.blogspot.com and the email address is family.of.hal.turner@gmail.com. Again, my mailing address for donations is 1906 Paterson Plank Rd., North Bergen, NJ 07047-1900. Checks and money orders should be made out to my wife, Phyllis.

Folks, this fight is not just about me. I know it's my problem; but this is about protecting all of our freedom of speech. We never thought we'd see the day where an American would be thrown in jail for uttering an opinion. Here we are, June, 2009. That has happened. I am the American who has been thrown in jail for uttering my opinion. We have got to defeat this case to preserve ALL of our freedom of speech! You can help. If you can't send money, duplicate this message and post it anywhere you can. Getting the word out will build support for this thing; and, together, we can defeat this terrible situation that's going to deprive all of us of our freedom of speech.

Hopefully, I’ll be bailed out on Monday or Tuesday. Thanks for your support!
