LUTZ COMMUNITY RADIO
PUBLIC SERVANTS ARRIVE TO
BEGIN PROTECTING THE PEOPLE
NOV. 19, 1997, 0645 EST, BLACK WEDNESDAY
Top of the 80 foot tower is barely visible over the trees
Notice the Sheriff's car in the foreground. You'll never learn it in a government school, but America's county form of government creates a system wherein the sheriff has ultimate authority within his county, even over the federal government.
The only way the Federal Government can exercise jurisdiction on land located in the sovereign state of Florida, which is not deeded to the feds, is if one of the 67 county sheriffs allows it.I have informed the sheriff of my county that the FCC claims to have jurisdiction over interstate and foreign commerce only. I have further informed him that Lutz Community Radio has been involved in neither type.
Using certified delivery mail, I asked Hillsborough County Sheriff, Cal Henderson, to protect Lutz Community Radio from the federal government. I reminded him of his ultimate authority, and the fact that his responsibility is to the Citizens of Hillsborough County, Florida, not the Federal government.Sheriff Henderson has never had the courtesy to respond to me, except with guns and violence. He has acquired a long-standing reputation for his refusal to meet with any Citizen whose major interest is restoring Constitutional government. If nothing else, at least Sheriff Henderson is consistent.
The first raid, which occurred on March 7, 1996, was preceded by nothing more than a letter from the Tampa FCC office. The letter made no demands. There was no cease and desist order served during the raid. Therefore, soon after the first raid, the radio station was placed back on the air with new equipment.
The FCC's complaint was supported by an affidavit that objected to finding that the radio station could be received up to six miles away. That allegation did not constitute legally admissable evidence of illegal power. Such measurements must be made using specialized electronic equipment, not a car odometer.
The FCC had no right to take our radio equipment. A claim and answer was filed in response to the unfounded complaint. Judge Steven D. Merryday refused to analyze the twelve separate and distinct defenses contained in the answer. There was no substantive due process of law. We found the court to be a total fraud!
The terrible abuse we had experienced at the hands of the FCC and courts was incentive for us to contact U.S. Congressman Michael Bilirakis. Mr. Bilirakis promised to intervene on behalf of frightened station listeners. We were hopeful that further state-sponsored terrorism could be prevented.
Unfortunately, U.S. Rep. Bilirakis' reneged on his promise to help. Telephone calls to his office brought only song and dance stories that were designed, as we learned later, to conceal the fact that a second assault on Lutz Community Radio was being planned by the government.
On Nov. 19, 1997, the government struck again with a massive demonstration of force. Just before daylight, men dressed in flak jackets carrying assault rifles invaded our peaceful neighborhood like a pack of wild animals. While the ground forces positioned themselves for the attack, a helicopter team arrived. It began flying dangerously low directly over our roof. The entire house literally shook on its foundation. The helicopter was equipped with an intensely bright spotlight which was aimed, alternately, at each window of our home.
Several assault team members arrived at the front door. They pounded on the door so hard that it rattled windows, all the while they cursed us at the top of their lungs. To say we were terrified is an understatement.
Because we would not unlock the door, a battering ram was readied. Just as two of the aggressors started swinging the ram toward the door, I unlocked it. Two other thugs grabbed hold of my arm and yanked me outside. While the television cameras rolled, I was handcuffed, and hauled away to jail. After ravaging our property for several hours, the goons retreated. They left the outside doors to our home unlocked, demonstrating a criminal mind-set.
The message was clear. If an individual aspires, without permission of the central government, to serve his community using harmless radio airwaves, it will be deemed an extremely serious crime, and delt with accordingly.
During what was, in reality, my abduction, I was given a copy of a criminal indictment that, upon analysis, was found to be flawed. It charged multiple violations of the same activity. It cited statutes which have never been enacted into positive law. It is no surprise to find that FCC Commissioner Michael Powell recognizes that the FCC subverts the Constitution.
In addition to the intimidation factor, the use of excessive force on Nov. 19th was calculated to discredit - to create an illusion that we are "wackos." For our legal reform activities, a certain faction of local government and media cretins attempted and failed once already to have my county school teacher wife fired. I have my own business, so they went for her job first. There is an ongoing effort to destroy us, because we actively confront criminals in government.
To execute vengeance on me, these outlaws applied non-constitutional FCC statutes. They rely heavily on media slant, and the huge gullibility of the public. Classic "show trials" are created, in which the force of law is misapplied in order to destroy the politically incorrect. Fully manipulated juries, prejudiced by the twisted media reports, naively cooperate in the fictitious conversion of honest and productive American citizens into convicted felons.
The mainstream media is mostly responsible for the gullibility and dumbing down of the American people. Since my field is radio-electronics, I would remind everyone that it is my duty to employ that expertise to help fellow Americans. That is, to help them bypass the filtered media in order to voice their shared concerns. Concerns such as government abuse, for instance. Only an abusive government would make licensing demands that are impossible to comply with, and then prosecute Citizens for non-compliance.
MEDIA CREW ARRIVES ON SCHEDULE
The public servant's plan to protect the people, by destroying their means of interaction, and exercising their religious freedom, is about to begin.
Isn't it interesting that the Government's carefully planned destruction of the Lutz radio communications facility, most of which was licensed, was kept totally secret from everyone except the media?
Fox 13 Television, when asked to provide a copy of the video, refused to do so without a court order. Fortunately, a loyal listener recorded all of the video that was broadcast by the television station subsequent to the destruction.
IS THE FOX 13 CAMERAMAN GOING OVER A
SCRIPT WITH THE U.S. MARSHALS SERVICE?
Note the high-laced military boots that the public servant is wearing. Should we not be very concerned that law officers everywhere are being militarized? Should we not be very concerned that the form of law these men intend to enforce will be military law?
In an effort to scare the multitude of low-power stations off the air, the Justice Department made a press release within minutes after the raid. It contained the customary government lies. It was reported that our radio station caused interference, and that I had refused to correct it - a vicious fabrication.
GOVERNMENT IS HERE AND IT IS HELPING US BY DESTROYING OUR SOURCE OF NEWS AND BIBLICAL GUIDANCE
OVERALL VIEW BELOW
PRIVATE WORKERS ASSIST IN THE DESTRUCTION OF THE COMMUNITY RADIO STATION ANTENNA SYSTEM
CUTTING DOWN THE TRANSMISSION LINES TO THE TOWER
Why would private contract workers assist in the destruction of private property without determining if the owner of the property had been afforded a court hearing regarding the matter first?
Could it be that most Americans wouldn't recognize a due process hearing if they saw one? Could it be that most Americans will do almost anything for a buck? Could it be that most Americans have taken big government and sports as their master and religion? Could it be all of the above?
WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE FCC AGENT, BRIAN MARENCO, IN JACKET, FINDS AMUSING ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF A 10.5 FOOT C BAND SATELLITE DISH?
IS PUBLIC SERVANT MARENCO PLEASED THAT THE HIRED HELP IS DOING THE DIRTY WORK? OR, IS HE THINKING ABOUT HOW MUCH THEIR WORK WILL HURT THE STATION LISTENERS? OR, IS IT ALL OF THE ABOVE?
This satellite dish was not instrumental in the generation of FM Band radio transmissions. Could it be that destruction of this dish was intended as a punitive measure, similar to the senseless destruction of David Koresh's prized 1968 Camaro? There was no court hearing in either instance.
Isn't it a violation of the Bill of Rights to deprive a Citizen of his property without substantive due process of law? I wonder why it is only American Citizens who must obey the law, and not their courts or their public servants?
Why are Americans willing to stand by and watch, as their next-door neighbors are destroyed one at a time for standing fast against the steadily encroaching, non-Constitutional actions of government actors?
Are most Americans just spineless, willing dupes, who don't mind becoming virtual slaves, provided they can drink beer and watch a ball game?
ANOTHER VIEW OF THE SATELLITE DISH
NOTICE THE YELLOW RYDER TRUCK ARRIVING
WHY DO RYDER TRUCKS APPEAR AT FEDERALLY SPONSORED CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, SUCH AS THE BOMBINGS OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER AND ALFRED P. MURRAH BUILDINGS?
GOVERNMENT MISSION COMPLETED: DESTRUCTION OF A PERFECTLY GOOD RADIO FACILITY - A FACILITY THAT WAS RECOGNIZED AS AN ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY AND WHICH CAUSED NO INTERFERENCE TO ANY EMERGENCY SERVICE
It is interesting to note that the government did not choose to remove the non-licensed FM Band antennas from the tower, and leave standing the 90% of the antenna system which was beneficial to the community and FCC licensed.
It is also interesting to note that, although the FCC had the entire 80 foot tower taken away by truck, it did not bother to haul away the non-licensed FM Band antennas at all! All of the antennas are still laying in the yard. They make an excellent monument to Tyranny in AmeriKa.
The most expensive and capable antenna on the tower was a five-element, 3-band, dual-feed, HF Yagi. The FCC did not see fit to lay that antenna on the ground, intact, when it was removed from the tower. Instead, each element was disassembled, and the stainless steel hardware scattered about, so as to inflict maximum punitive effect. This can be seen in the foundation photograph.
THE CONCRETE FOUNDATION FOR THE TOWER
Of the three FCC raids of Tampa-area stations on November 19, 1997, only the raid on the news and Christian format radio station in Lutz rated destruction of the concrete foundation for the antenna tower.
The FCC was not satisfied to stop with unbolting and removing the last tower section, thereby leaving the stubs intact to re-erect a new tower in the future. Instead, a great deal of effort was expended employing a heavy duty metal cutting saw to cut every last bit of metal off flush with the concrete base, in an effort to ruin the base, and make it impossible to erect the tower again.
THIS IS THE GENERATOR THAT WOULD HAVE POWERED THE LUTZ COMMUNICATIONS FACILITY DURING EMERGENCIES.
Coupled with the amateur radio section of the communications facility, this generator would have enabled Lutz Community Radio to help protect the Life and Property of American Citizens during emergencies.
Could it be that an American government controlled by foreign interests is unlikely to want American Citizens to be self sufficient and independent?
The legal process indicated that "admiralty" law was relied on to carry out this deprivation of property without a court hearing. Can anyone cite a plausable explanation for using admiralty law on dry land?
