Linda Thompson is a very complex person. Her alliances and ties are ephemeral, and many people who initially associated themselves with her eventually disavowed any ties with her due to her evasive answers. Among her many associations has been one with Narconon. The following is a copy of a post that I downloaded from the Fidonet Controversy Conference in 1994. ************************************************************* FYI - The following is a copy of a notice that is currently being circulated through our nation. It has been reproduced here in its entirety, and if you have any questions regarding the contents, please contact the indicated source organization. This message is being posted for your information. THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR PRANK. ======================================================================== Date: 18-Apr-94 04:07 From: Linda Thompson To: All Patriots Subj: AEN ALERT / MILITIA ALERT ! ********** AEN ALERT ********** IMPORTANT ********** AEN ALERT ********* *********** COPY AND FORWARD THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY *********** Every member of the United States House of Representatives and Senate are this week being delivered an ultimatum that demands that each of them personally take the initiative to revoke unconstitutional legislation and initiate an inquiry into Waco. A copy of the Ultimatum follows in the next message. All MILITIA units will convene in Washington, D.C. the second full week that the Congress is in session in September to enforce this mandate and to deliver copies of the Declaration of Independence to the White House. All units will be armed and prepared to enforce this mandate. This is exactly what it sounds like. **NOTE: MILITIA UNITS MUST WEAR IDENTIFYING INSIGNIA AND BE ARMED. If you are armed and wear a military insignia identifying you as a member of a military unit, if captured, you must be treated as a Prisoner of War, not as a criminal arrestee, by law. We have five months to get in shape and be prepared to restore this country's liberty. Mentally and physically, we must be ready, willing, and able, to do the job. I have personally signed the ultimatum to be delivered to Congress, as John Hancock said, in handwriting so large that the King cannot mistake my identity. No other persons are or will be identified, however, please feel free to copy and issue the ultimatum to Congress yourself. A copy of the ultimatum follows in the next message. Additionally, a signed Declaration of Independence will be delivered to the White House on the day the militia convenes in Washington, D.C. in September, very likely with millions of signatures. Below the initial 100 signers' names which are affixed on the original, we will attach every page of signatures obtained between now and September. Please circulate the Declaration of Independence and obtain signatures throughout the country through every means possible and return to AJF, 3850 S. Emerson Ave., Suite E, Indianapolis, IN 46203. We will be air-dropping this information throughout the country and distributing it through churches, gun shows, etc. All national media have been provided copies as well. Please distribute all pages of the Militia Alert, Ultimatum, and Declaration of Independence everywhere. Make thousands of copies. Put them out in grocery stores, wherever you can think of. More pilot volunteers, printers, and funding for the distribution of the Declaration of Independence are needed. Whether I am arrested or killed in the interim has no bearing on the preparations of the militia units, the ultimatum, or the Declaration of Independence throughout this country. Proceed as planned, plan accordingly, and God bless us all. Linda Thompson Acting Adjutant General UMUS, pursuant to 10 USC  311 Articles I and II, Bill of Rights, Constitution of the United States of America Additional information and updates will be posted on the American Justice Federation voice mail line at 317-780-5200 beginning April 20, 1994. Leave a message if you can volunteer to help print these documents, fly planes to airdrop literature, get the information on radio or television, etc. ======================================================================== ORGANIZATION AND PURPOSE OF THE AMERICAN JUSTICE FEDERATION 1. The American Justice Federation (AJF) is a charitable and educational organization dedicated to providing educational services to the public concerning current issues of Constitutional law and individual Constitutional rights. 2. As part of the educational services provided by AJF, the Associated Electronic News (AEN) network, a computerized electronic news network dedicated to providing a free-to-the-public public forum for discussion of Constitutional rights issues, is operated and funded by the AJF and all equipment for this service is provided by the AJF. The AJF also publishes a newspaper, AMERICAN JUSTICE NEWS, distributed nationally to subscribers, as part of its educational services and as a source of fundraising. Presently, all staff and reporters are working as volunteers, however, the AJF expects to hire staff reporters, editors and distributors as funding becomes available. 3. As a charitable organization, the AJF screens cases for persons who request assistance in securing Constitutionally guaranteed rights, persons who may or may not be indigent but who cannot find adequate legal representation or who cannot pay an attorney, such as defendants in state and federal criminal law cases and Constitutional rights actions. The AJF obtains attorneys who are willing to work pro bono or for a reduced fee or to take cases which are solely on a contingency basis, such as 42 USC 1988 actions, or civil rights actions which would provide payment for legal services to the prevailing party under 42 U.S.C. 1988, and the AJF pays expenses, such as deposition and travel expenses, for these cases. 4. The AJF obtains funding through private donations and grants which (at such time as such donations and grants reach a level to facilitate such payment) pay the salaries of staff and expenses of operation, production of educational literature and speaker's programs and expenses, and legal services for clients needing legal services who otherwise cannot afford such services. 3850 South Emerson Avenue, Suite E, Indianapolis, Indiana 46203 Telephone: (317) 780-5204 FAX: (317) 780-5209 ======================================================================== TO: Each member of the Unites States House of Representatives and United States Senate DATE: April 19, 1994 ULTIMATUM WHEREAS, the federal government of the United States of America is constrained by the law of the Unites States Constitution, the Supreme law of this country, to limited jurisdiction, and limited power; and WHEREAS, the federal government of the United States of America, through unlawful Executive Orders, and through legislation passed without quorum and without proper ratification or otherwise unlawfully enacted under mere color of law by members of the legislative branch, have usurped the Constitutional authority of the sovereign states and sovereign citizens of this country, and laws which are unlawful and unconstitutional have been enacted in voluminous number which have outrageously exceeded the boundaries of law and decency; and WHEREAS, the people of this country have been exploited and subjugated to an unlawful authority by an unlawful system of loans from a private banking institution known as the Federal Reserve, and been forced, even at gunpoint, to submit to an unlawful federal income tax which is not and never has been within the authority of the federal government to enact or enforce, all to the benefit of private individuals and corporations at the expense of the liberty, lives, and property of the citizens of this nation; and WHEREAS, persons acting under color of law as federal agents, under the direction of those claiming to be elected officials operating under color of law, sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, have infringed upon the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms, have conducted unlawful warrantless house to house searches and seizures, have assaulted and killed sovereign citizens of this country on the false pretense of "gun control," "child abuse," "the war on drugs" and a plethora of unlawful statutes enacted to unlawfully control the lives and liberty of the citizens of this country; WHEREAS, elections are now controlled through the power of committees and lobbies wielding the most money to obtain electoral votes or sway the nomination of candidates and persuade the enactment of legislation that has made it impossible for the common citizen to participate as a candidate in an election or for the vote of the common citizen to be meaningful; and WHEREAS, through an unconstitutional and unlawfully enacted "income tax," the federal government has created a "carrot and stick" that has seduced and coerced the elected officials of the several states to submit to the unlawful incursion of the federal government and its agents into the sovereign territory of each state, as a trade off for the receipt of these ill gotten proceeds; THEREFORE, YOU ARE COMMANDED to uphold your oath and duty to the citizens of this country, and to uphold the Constitution and the rights of the citizens of this country, and in so doing, you are commanded to personally initiate legislation and do all things necessary to: Repeal the Fourteenth, Sixteenth, and Seventeenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States and to publicly acknowledge that the federal government has no jurisdiction to make or enforce criminal laws outside its territories, limited to the area of Washington, D.C., and the property and territories actually owned by the United States, which does not include any State within the several states of the United States; and Repeal the Brady Bill and NAFTA; Repeal the Drug Interdiction Act and any laws which allow the use of military equipment or military personnel against the United States citizens. Presently, these laws provide a backdoor method to fund "national guard" and "drug enforcement" using military troops and equipment against U.S. citizens, while claiming these aren't "really" military troops, they are "merely" national guard, or worse, "federal law enforcement," but all are trained in military tactics, possess military weapons, and military equipment. These laws must be repealed and you must publicly acknowledge that the federal government may not, through any means, use military force, weapons, or equipment against any person on U.S. soil or upon the soil of any sovereign State, except in the event of an actual invasion by troops of a foreign country within the boundaries of the United States of America, and only then, against such foreign troops, not citizens or residents of this country; and Immediately remove any and all foreign troops and equipment and to immediately identify each and every federal military troop and federal law enforcement or tax enforcement agent and all equipment now located within the boundaries of any and every State, including all assets of military or task force "special operations" units, CIA, NSA, or any other covert law enforcement, quasi-law enforcement or military agency or activity; and Declare that the United States of America is not operating under the authority of the United Nations or if it is, to immediately renounce and revoke any and all agreements binding the United States to such authority; and Declare the federal debt to the Federal Reserve null and void, unconstitutional, and without effect and order that currency no longer be printed by the Federal Reserve or any entity other than the Treasury of the United States, backed by gold within the possession of the United States; and Convene a full Congressional inquiry, to be conducted publicly, by an independent prosecutor selected from a person who has no association in any way whatsoever with any agency of the federal government, into the events in Waco, Texas, from February 28, 1993 through the present, at the property known as Mt. Carmel, with the special prosecutor to have the full power to convene a grand jury from the citizens of all the fifty states, obtain indictments, and issue subpoenas duces tecum and subpoenas for testimony before a grand jury, and to prosecute any and all persons, regardless of their position in government, for any crimes for which a true bill of indictment is returned. Notice: You have until 8:00 a.m., September 18, 1994, the Monday following the second full week that the Congress reconvenes in September, to personally initiate legislation to this effect and to do all things necessary to effect this legislation and the restoration of a Constitutional government in within this country. If you do not personally and publicly attend to these demands, you will be identified as a Traitor, and you will be brought up on charges for Treason before a Court of the Citizens of this Country. Linda D. Thompson Acting Adjutant General Unorganized Militia of the United States of America, Pursuant to 10 U.S.C.  311 and Articles I and II of the Bill of Rights 3850 S. Emerson Ave., Suite E, Indianapolis, Indiana 46203 Telephone: (317) 780-5200 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Additional updates and a copy of the actual ultimatum as mailed will be posted on or before April 20, 1994 and updates on the militia assembly in September will be available on the voice mail line at 317-780-5200 beginning April 20. ======================================================================== DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OF 1994 A Declaration by the Sovereign Citizens of the Several States Within the United States of America When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation. We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among the people, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of the people of the several states of the United States of America; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present federal government of the United States of America is one of repeated injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States and over the sovereign citizens within the several states. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World: All Branches, the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, of the federal government, have refused Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good, the most blatant example of which is the total contempt in which they have held the Constitution of the United States and the rights of the citizens of this country protected by the limitations upon government set forth in the Constitution; The President and Congress have forbidden state Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, under inducement or threat of the loss of federal funding, unless suspended in their Operation till their Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, they have utterly neglected to attend to them; The legislative branch has refused to pass other Laws for the Accommodation of large Districts of People, unless those People would relinquish the Right of Representation in the Legislature, a Right inestimable to them, and formidable to Tyrants only, as evidenced through the passage of the Seventeenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and the present federal voting system, which is a national sham and disgrace, and prevents the common man from participating either as a candidate, or by meaningful vote for a candidate of his choosing in a truly free and open election; The Congress convenes in a manner which is inaccessible to the general public who are not allowed to address the Congress nor to directly supervise the activities of Congress, and publishes its business in records not readily accessible to the People, intentionally obtuse in the construction of both the laws and the publication thereof, for the Purposes of deceiving and fatiguing the people into Compliance with such Measures. The federal judicial offices have set themselves wholly apart from and above the people, immune even from suit for their transgressions, answerable to none, and responsive to none except those who further their private interests; The federal government, through unlawfully constituted federal agencies which purport to be law enforcement agencies, and under the color of laws enacted by the legislature which exceed the constitutional jurisdiction of the federal government, has repeatedly murdered or incarcerated those who have opposed with manly Firmness the invasions on the Rights of the People; The federal government has endeavored to prevent the Population of these States; for that Purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their Migrations hither, and raising the Conditions of new Appropriations of Lands; and has endeavored to depopulate the United States, and for that purpose, has waged chemical, biological, and radioactive warfare upon the people, and encouraged and funded abortions and acts of genocide upon large populations of the people; All the branches of the federal government have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by subjugating the federal courts to the department of Treasury and the Executive Branch, and by refusing Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers and the independent Investigation of crimes committed by agencies and officials of the federal government, insulating them from their crimes through executive pardon, legislated and judicially created immunity from criminal and civil prosecution; The Federal Judiciary have been selected on the will and whim of the executive branch and a Congress inattentive to anything but their own special interests and the will and money of lobbying groups, and the judiciary is dependent upon them for the Tenure of their Offices, and the Amount and payment of their Salaries; The federal government has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance; The federal government has kept among us, in Times of Peace, Standing Armies, without the consent of our Legislatures, or through the seduction or coercion of the state legislatures through the mechanisms of "federal tax monies" offered in exchange for the cooperation of the state legislatures in handing over the sovereignty of each state; The Military has been rendered independent of, and superior to the Civil Power, through the enactment of laws which wholly abridge the Constitution of the United States and which seek to avoid the effect of the Posse Comitatus Act through surreptitious and covert methods; The President, officers of the executive branch, and Congress have combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving Assent to their acts of pretended Legislation; For quartering large Bodies of Armed Troops, foreign and federal, among us; For protecting agents of the federal government and military, from any trial or by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these States; For regulating and strangulating our Trade with all Parts of the World; For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent; for failing to publicly acknowledge, more than 60 years ago, that the federal government was in fact, bankrupt, but instead, concealing these facts from the people and entering into a fraudulent agreement to finance the bankruptcy, by creating and perpetuating a fraudulent monetary system, to the enrichment of private bankers, insurance companies, and their stockholders, called the "Federal Reserve System," whereby paper notes are created to "loan" to the federal government at interest rates fixed by these private bankers, and where only a portion of the interest and none of the principal on these loans is paid each year; a system whereby the payments are extorted from the people through a fraudulent, coercive, unjust and unlawful federal tax scheme foisted upon the people without their knowledge or consent and through a labyrinth of licensing agencies and required licenses for all manner of endeavors, which are themselves nothing more than taxes by another name, all enforced by unbridled terrorist tactics and fear produced by the brute force of an unrestrained government that destroys the lives and property of those who do not submit. For depriving us, in many Cases, of the Benefits of Trial by Jury; For proposing and enacting legislation to federally criminalize, indeed to suffer the death penalty in many cases or at least the forfeiture of property, for the free exercise of the unalienable rights of free speech and free press, freedom of worship, freedom of assembly, or the right to keep and bear arms; For enacting legislation to seize the property of the people under a myriad of pretenses, and to imprison persons on the testimony of a unknown, unidentified, and often paid, informants, who become informants to secure for themselves a more favorable position in a prosecution brought against them, and all within the states where the federal government has no legal powers of law enforcement; For abolishing the free System of English Laws in the states, and establishing therein an arbitrary Government, and enlarging its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an Example and fit Instrument for introducing the same absolute Rule into these states; For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments; For usurping the power of our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate for us in all Cases whatsoever; The federal government has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of its Protection and waging War against us; The federal government has plundered our Seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the Lives of our People; The federal government, at this Time, is transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of Death, Desolation, and Tyranny, already begun, often under the color of law of the United Nations, and with circumstances of Cruelty and Perfidy, scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous Ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized Nation; The government has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the Executioners of their Friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands; The federal government has excited domestic insurrections amongst us; In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A President, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People. We, therefore, the sovereign citizens of the several states of the united states, which now form the United States of America, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in our own names and right and by the authority of God Almighty, solemnly Publish and Declare, that each of the sovereign citizens undersigned are, and of Right ought to be, Free and Independent Sovereign Citizens; that they are absolved from all Allegiance to the federal government of the United States of America, and that all political Connection between them and the federal government of the United States of America, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent Sovereign Citizens, each has the full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which an Independent Sovereign may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each of our lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor. Signers, this _____ day of __________________, in the year 1994 of our Lord: [100 original signers whose signatures are already affixed to the original appear here]
