Summary of Investigative Journal Radio Program with Greg Anthony on First Amendment Radio

November 10, 2014

Let’s talk about the Tony Alamo case again. The reason I’m concentrating on this case is because it clearly shows that Rome is connected to our government, and our government and Rome do not like anybody talking about the truth about them, and he’d been doing it for 40 years. They’d been trying to frame him, and they have put him in jail before for false IRS charges. That imprisonment was for 4 years and a half year at a halfway house. A lot of things that went on in his trial were irregular which, to me, was worse than a kangaroo court. I have a law degree and am by no means a legal scholar, but one of the reasons I wanted to get into the law is I always felt there was a lot of injustice in the world which I learned when I was a journalist. As a kid one of the first things I wanted to do was to write and find out about the truth. What I found out is that the profession that I joined basically wasn’t about finding the truth; it was about covering the truth. The major radio and TV stations and the newspapers do that; they cover up for the beast in Rome, and dejected, with truth in hand, I decided to go into the law profession figuring that maybe I could find some justice there. I find even worse situations there, and I picked two professions that I am sorry to say I am very embarrassed about. However, I’ve learned a lot throughout those years, and the one thing I did learn is who is behind it all. Why was the media not telling the truth? Why were they covering for Rome? And why is our legal system so topsy-turvy and upside down where many people go to jail for no reason? Many people who do buck the system end up in jail because of a lop-sided court system and unfair and crooked judges. I said a long time ago that the most endangered species in the world is an honest judge, especially here in America. What makes it even worse is that we pretend that we have the greatest system in the world. We put out this public relations campaign that we have freedom, we have a Constitution, and we have a justice system. On paper it’s great, but as it works its way to where it actually does work, it is really not what it pretends to be. And so I concentrate on this Alamo story because it shows how the whole gamut of what we talk about comes clear in this case because what we see here is a man who has a Bible-believing ministry, and he spoke up against the beast in Rome for a long time, and when you do that you open up a situation to where you’re not only criticizing what Rome does to Bible-believers for trying to point out what their major goal is, and that is to be under their umbrella, but you also get into the secular world and see how Rome controls our foreign and domestic policy, and he was very, very adamant about that. Finally, when this came down in 2008, I’d spoken to him a year before that and he was telling me again that they were on his case. I had a former FBI agent telling me the same thing, but he couldn’t find anything wrong at Tony’s ministry or with Tony, so he left and finally quit the FBI. When you have an FBI agent that doesn’t play ball with them anymore, they say that they don’t know this guy or that he never worked for them. But let’s get back to some of the irregularities of the trial that I was pointing out last week.

At first, there should have been a change of venue because there was so much prejudice going on in Fouke and Texarkana, Arkansas, where this trial took place. How could a man get a fair trial after the whole town had been poisoned regarding this ministry by the media and the local authorities? Before the trial was getting set up, I and some others made random phone calls to some local businesses there, and I asked them, “What do you think of that ministry?” and not one person had one good thing to say about it, and basically they reiterated what was already in the newspapers as to what they had heard in the past. So how could he get a fair trial there? He couldn’t.

When you look at the trial testimony, one thing immediately smacks you in the face. It is, WHERE ARE ALL THE CROSS EXAMINATIONS? Other than a mediocre amount of questioning of one of the complaining witnesses (Desiree), you find almost NONE. This shows no investigation, no preparation, and no defense, as would be absolutely necessary to fairly try that monster case that the government was working on feverishly for years. Completely ineffective assistance of counsel as in this case mandates a new trial, according to the law.

Aside from that, the transcript shows that the government’s witnesses were allowed to go on long monologues, unhindered, while every witness for Tony was constantly cut off, and often stopped mid-sentence. The prosecution would only allow them to say what they wanted to get out of the witness and never let them explain. They were shut down before they could speak the truth. And the Judge enforced that.

But you can also imagine how Tony’s mediocre attorneys would have been intimidated and preferred to just go along with the overwhelming bias against Tony by not putting up a fight. When the deck is stacked the way it was in this case, the media and public opinion so negative, and the jury and judge are already so poisoned against your client, do you really think the attorneys wanted to dive into good cross-examinations? These five young women witnesses are the helpless, pitiful “victims.” Who wants to come down on a crying victim in front of the jury? Who wants to call a victim a liar? Who would like to rake a victim over the coals and cause a floor show of tears and sobs? Do you think you’d win over the prejudiced jury that way?

Another point I want to raise:

If they really felt Tony was guilty of illicit sex with minors, then why wasn’t he tried for that? Why wasn’t he just charged with the crime of rape? That would be a cut and dried state charge in Arkansas state court. But they had to have a reason for not using that. They obviously decided that was not going to fly, so they created a complex federal case to keep him under federal jurisdiction. Knowing he traveled a lot, and these young women sometimes got to travel as well, Tony was charged with 10 counts of the Mann act, spanning 12 years, from 1993 to 2005.

The Mann Act, was enacted way back in 1910. Representative Mann introduced the act in December 1909 at the request of Chicago prosecutors who claimed that girls and women were being forced into prostitution by unscrupulous pimps and procurers. The term white slavery became popular to describe the predicament these females faced. It was alleged that men were tricking, coercing, and drugging females to get them involved in prostitution and then forcing them to stay in brothels. The legislation was intended to stop the interstate trafficking of women. Though federal criminal statutes were rare in 1910, and seen as an attack on state police powers, the legislation encountered little opposition. The act made it a felony to transport knowingly any woman or girl in interstate commerce or foreign commerce for prostitution, debauchery, or any other immoral purpose. It also made it a felony to coerce a woman or a girl into such immoral acts. So where was the INTERSTATE OR FOREIGN COMMERCE in this case? It did not exist.

Here is one of their benefits if they kept Tony under federal jurisdiction:
If Tony’s case was composed of federal charges rather than state charges, the appeal would go to the 8th Circuit where the Senior status Judge, Morris Arnold, sits. He just happens to be the Judge Tony was accused of wanted to kidnap in 1991. Tony was acquitted in that case. Earlier in 1991, this Judge Arnold was the one who caused all the church properties in Nashville and Arkansas to be sold on the courthouse steps for pennies on the dollar, just as was done this most recent time around. That was due to a civil case where two men embezzled over $100,000 dollars from the church. The Church brought the complaint with plenty of proof to the Fort Smith District Attorney’s office, and guess what they did? They refused to prosecute. So the two ex-members, who emptied the bank account of church funds and took off, got a cult awareness network attorney name Peter Georgiades to sue the church. These 2 men, who abandoned their wives and families, then sued Tony for “Alienation of Affection.” This and other absurd charges were upheld against Tony and the ministry by Judge Morris Arnold. To cover the judgment award from this case, the US Marshalls took the Nashville church and housing, and then came storming into the Arkansas church properties and took everything they could, including any money on people’s persons, vehicles, Alamo Designs jackets found there on church property. It was a free-for-all, stealing whatever they wanted. This left many families in a cold February in Arkansas, in 1991, literally on the streets with only what was on their back. Tony and the church made a point of protesting this judge’s appointment to the 8th Circuit. They even circulated a petition to block his appointment in the early 90s.

So this Judge is on senior status on the 8th Circuit court of appeals that heard Tony’s appeal on his conviction. What a coincidence! I don’t have to mention it was denied. Tony has one last appeal in limbo at this time.

Why did they attack the Alamo Ministries? Because they’re one of the few Christian ministries that have a big following, and they had a number of different ministries across the country, and you could say they were successful in a sense that they helped a lot of people. The government saw what was going on and how many people they reached, and saw their land holdings, and they said, “We gotta get that.” It’s that simple. The Vatican said, “We can’t allow these people to do this. We’re the only ones that can spread the word,” so to speak. But what kind of word are they spreading? They’re spreading a bunch of lies, and they wanted to come down on a ministry that was outing them and saying, “Look at the Protestant Reformation; look at how this country was formed; look at how they’ve taken control; look at what they’ve done.” And they didn’t like it. So this week do you know how many hits they got on their website on this subject? 296,679 from 89 countries, 38 US universities, 39 foreign universities all across the globe, people who want to know about this story and with Tony still in prison. When he was out of prison I’m sure they reached a lot more because he used to do radio shows across the world, paying for shortwave time. You know you can’t get this on ABC or NBC; only the lies get out there. Last week I brought this to you and they had 256,000 and I hope this show has added a little bit to that number. I think it has because I have had a lot of people ask me to continue telling this story. They like somebody going in depth on something in this world instead of a 30 second news clip. Countries from all over the world want to know about “Mystery Babylon,” about who the antichrist is, about the story of Pope Francis and who he is involved with in our government and in Argentina, and a lot of other stories that you don’t get, that gets to the heart of the truth about what’s really going on in the world.

One thing that the prosecution did in this case is stress to the jury that it wasn’t about Tony Alamo’s travel; it was all about the reason for the girls traveling. Why did they go on these trips? The prosecution insisted that this was a sex crime case with the added element of travel. My question to them is, if it was a sex crime why did they not charge him with that crime? They didn’t charge him with that crime. They charged him with a violation of the Mann Act. They asked the girls why they were on these trips. Did they have any job? A couple of them said that they had no reason to go except to have sex. It seemed like this way the jury was given an out to still convict because admittedly there was no sex on the trips. The prosecution also emphasized this point in the appeal reply.

The Alamo Ministries frequently travel in large groups. They have ministries in a number of different states, and there were constant responsibilities for the people that were traveling. Invariably, those that went, without exception, all wanted to go for the trip’s sake.

In count one, it was a trip with Tony Alamo and his ministry on a summer bus trip, and the person who made count one asked to go at the last minute. Count two, the complainant rode from Los Angeles to Fouke with a van of other people against Tony’s wishes. He didn’t even want the person to go. Count three, another of the girl complainants rides with her mother from Fouke (where Tony had resided) to their home in Moffett, Oklahoma, for a visit. On the fourth count, the complainant rides with her mother back to Fouke from a visit with family in Moffett. Do any of these sound like what the Mann Act was intended for? White slavery? Pimps taking girls across the state line for sex and keeping them in brothels? It doesn’t sound like anything like that to me; we’ve got mothers traveling with their kids across state lines for ministry purposes. They belong to a ministry; they travel in buses. How many of you when you were a kid have taken a bus trip from the church you belonged to? Sounds similar to me.

Now on count five, one of the complainants rides with church members from Moffett back to Fouke after a week’s visit with her mother. On count six, the same complainant and others are driven by church members from Nashville back to Fouke and Tony remained in Nashville. Count seven, another complainant was on a ride with Tony for Tony’s court hearing in Los Angeles. The trip is aborted in Albuquerque. She stays overnight in a separate hotel room with other women. They return to Ft. Smith. The same complainant rides in a motor home from Ft. Smith, AR, to West Virginia for a deposition of the witness on an IRS case. On count nine, the same complainant did not go from Ft. Smith, but did ride with Tony from West Virginia to the apartment in Memphis where they all were living during the IRS trial. There was never any trip from Ft. Smith to Memphis at all. Now on the last count the complainant flew to Los Angeles from Fouke. At this time Tony was already in Los Angeles.

First of all, we gotta look at some of these counts closely. If I’m a prosecutor in this case, the Mann Act is ripe if you do it properly and you don’t get a good defense. Pity the person who the government is after and you’re driving across state lines with somebody, a minor, and they can do anything they want. They can coerce the witness to say something, maybe promise them something, maybe offer them something, maybe get a disgruntled person, and that’s exactly what they did in this case, but do you think the judge cared? No! And they take these witnesses to a place where they’re kept for a couple weeks, constantly promised stuff, talked to, coerced until they can finally get something that they can kind of manipulate into a conviction. That’s what I would think as a defense attorney, and now, as a defense attorney what I have to do to protect my client is show that, but none of this stuff comes up in the trial. So the jury’s listening to a one-sided story, exactly what the prosecution wanted. And what did the defense attorneys do in this case? Were they intimidated? Who knows? It’s a frame job from the beginning right to the end.

The end result is the ministry is still there. There’s been civil cases filed against them, the largest in Arkansas history, $500 million. A lot of things tell me that it wasn’t strictly Tony Alamo’s activities they were after; it was what he was saying. They had to shut him up some way, and then shut his ministry down. It just so happens he used to talk against the Vatican, and you don’t think they have any power?

Now on the first count, it was November 2004, and several people all testified that it was not Tony’s idea for the complainant to be on this bus trip at all. These people were doing final packing of sound equipment at 2AM in the office. Shortly before leaving, one of the complainants along with two other people asked if they could go. Another person also witnessed that besides seeing the complainant packing her suitcase in a room earlier that night, she had been doing this even before she asked to go. Another one testified of planning with the complainant earlier that day to ask to go on the trip. She testified that they decided to pre-pack in case they did get to go so they would be ready when they got the OK. So they wanted to go! There was a long list of things Tony wanted to accomplish in Los Angeles, and he carried out those plans. The trip was from November 13 to December 23, 2004. There are nine other counts, and I’ve got some specific information just like this on those counts.

They did take these three people to Wellspring, which is a place where they supposedly rehabilitate and they work together with the feds. They were taken there and kept under lock and key almost, until the government got what they wanted, and they only could do it by coercion and promising gifts and money and schooling and other things. If you’re a defense attorney you have a field day, but none of this stuff was brought up in court. The thing that really saddened me was how many of the witnesses weren’t allowed to testify, weren’t even investigated after the list was given to the defense attorneys so that a proper defense could be accomplished.
