Here's something which just came across my desk that might be
of some interest for your readers of your publication. It was
reprinted from a FAX in "Freedom Writer."
There is a photocopy of a FAX which contains the following:
THE WHITE HOUSE
September 25, 1995
The Honorable Arlen Specter
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Senator Specter:
The administration is quietly looking into the
feasibility of enforceing Executive Order 10998 to control
the stockpileing of foods by survivalists, patriots,
militias and others who have anticipated the shortages we
anticipate will soon develop.
Due to the impact it is now having upon the present
stock level of the national food supply this will involve
confiscation of food supplies beyond a 30 day supply,
arrest, or removal of those who are stockpileing.
This action by these Christian, Mormon and other
cult groups is producing substantial food shortages
across the nation.
Your input as a member of the Senate intelligence
committee is respectfully solicited.
[signed Bill Clinton]
The text which the Institure for First Amendment Studies offered
at the bottom of the reproduction is:
In an apparent effort to stimulate paranoia and hatred, someone
typed a bogus White House letter, forged the President's
signature, and faxed it out to Christian Patriots and militias
across the country. The American Patriot's Fax Network
broadcast it on Saturday, October 7, two days before the deadly
Amtrak derailment in Arizona. The party claiming responsibility
for that crime is the heretofore unknown Sons of Gestapo. It
is not known if there is any connection between the two incidents.
