Facts about the Matt Hale Case...By Evelyn Hutcheson


I am Matthew Hales mother.  You must care that our corrupt justice system (Federal court system) in this case and the government (FBI) has locked away an innocent man for 40 years because he stood for and believed in, the First Amendment, (Freedom of Speech) without any evidence, Matt was tried and convicted in federal court in Chicago, Illinois in 2005 for having solicited the murder of Chicago Federal Judge Joan Lefkow.  James T. Moody was the judge in the trial.  No evidence was ever presented during the trial that Matt ever asked anyone to commit murder.  Matt is an innocent man that has suffered at the hands of our corrupt government, the FBI and our corrupt justice system.

The government had Tony Evola, a government informant which they paid $75,000 of our tax money to tape conversations with Matt over a 2 year period to attempt to get evidence that they could use to put Matt away.  On these tapes, never once did Matt ever ask this informant to kill anybody. Matt refused Evola several times on the tapes. In fact, Evola was confused as to who the government wanted Matt to ask him to kill.  He thought the target was a man. 

When the government (FBI)realized that Evola thought the target was a man, they had him send Matt an email referring to the target as being femala, (the word Evola used for female) (Evola is mentally challenged) to further their plan to charge Matt. You can read the entire trial transcript on our website (freematthale.net.)  
Trials Transcripts and Exhibits...FREE MATT HALE

 In 2004 Matt arrived at the courthouse in Chicago to go before Judge Joan Lefkow regarding a Trademark case and he was arrested.  Judge Lefkow had ruled in Matts favor in the Trademark case and a higher court had ordered her to reverse her decision and Matt was there to appeal that ruling.  He had no animosity towards Judge Lefkow.  He never wanted her killed. He was there to appeal her ruling she had reversed. A higher court had ordered her to reverse her decision.

Matt was not present for the entire jury selection even though he never waived that right.  His attorney made that decision without asking Matt. Matt was only present for 52%.  The law is that he had the right to be present for the entire jury selection. When Evola testified in the trial, because nothing on the tapes revealed Matt asking Evola to kill the judge, Evola testified that he asked Matt if he wanted him(Evola) to kill the judge and Matt nodded, yes.

Matt suspected that Evola was a government informant, he wasn't concerned because he knew he would always follow the law and never do anything illegal.  Matt went to Law School to become an attorney and work to make legal change in the government and our court system.

Several years after Matts trial, Matt discovered that the jury foreman had testified in another unrelated case that he had disobeyed the judges order not to read anything about Matt and the case or listen to the media.  After being accepted as one of the jurors, he did testify that he went home and did in fact follow the media coverage about Matt and the case, disobeying the judges order.  He testified that he had run home and removed a note on his door saying that he was going to be a juror on Matt Hales trial because he was afraid one of Matts supporters might harm him or his gay partner. He had found Matt guilty before going into the jury room.

Matts attorney had a list of over 100 witnesses and never called one to testify.  When Matt told his attorney that he wanted to testify, his attorney told Matt that he wasn't prepared to do that. Matts attorney, Thomas Durkin refused to cross the street and see Matt at MCC to prepare for the case because he didn't like the conditions over there, according to Durkin's associate attorney Patrick Blegen.

Judge James T. Moody allowed another man's crime into Matt's trial.  It was very obvious that the judge was prejudiced against Matt as was the prosecutor.  Matts attorney Thomas Durkin of Chicago told the jury they should find Matt guilty on moral charges.  He told the jury how disgusting Matt was.
 
The last statement the prosecutor said to the jury is that the government had evidence that Matthew Hale ordered one of his organization to go out and kill and injure many people.  This is totally untrue.  There was never any evidence presented at trial that Matt ever asked anybody to kill anyone.  Matts attorney never objected, the judge never asked the jury to disallow that statement.

The trial was tainted and prejudiced, the jury foreman who was homosexual, feared Matt supporters.  He went into the jury room ready to find Matt guilty before hearing any evidence because there was no evidence.

The judge sentenced Matt using the sentencing guidelines used to sentence a terrorist.  Matt isn't a terrorist.  He gave Matt a 40 year sentence, Matt was in solitary confinement at Florence Supermax prison for over 12 years for a crime he never committed. He was then sent to Terre Haute prison in Indiana for a short period of time, falsely charged again and thrown into solitary confinement for 6 months, then sent back to Florence Admax, in solitary confinement in the control unit where he is at this time. I suggest that Matt was sent to Terre Haute prison to be killed. Terre Haute prison is one of the ten worst prisons in the U.S. During the time Matt was at Terre Haute prison in solitary confinement, he lost 20 pounds the first month in solitary confinement. 
Hell to Pay for Prisoners Housed at Terre Haute, IN Federal Prison!  
Matt has asked repeatedly to have a polygraph to prove his innocents and has been refused. The government knows that a polygraph would prove Matt innocent. Matt has fought for his freedom for over 13 years and continues to be strong in that effort.  He is a political prisoner. Hale Fighting for Polygraph test

Matt has written two books, Ending White Slavery and The Racial Loyalist Manifesto. You can order his books on amazon.com or you can send me a donation and I will order you the books directly from the printer. 

Matt needs your help!! We must keep funds in his account so that he can eat healthy foods. Matt has a civil case against the BOP. Matt was going to depose 12 BOP witnesses.. However that has changed do to the fact that Matt is being abused and tortured while doing depositions. They have him handcuffed with a chain attached to his waist and an electric jacket so that they have complete control of him should he become violent by shocking him. Matt has never been violent in his entire life. This is just another way to stop him from working the case. The trial will be in Denver, CO U.S. District Court. Matt would like to have many supporters in the courtroom for the trial. I will send the information to my supporters list as soon as I know the date of the trial. Supporters in the courtroom is important to show support for Matt and the cause.

Matt is asking supporters to send letters to Attorney General Jeff Session, Steve Bannon and President Trump asking that Matt be pardoned. I have a form letter that I will email you. I am sending out a letter to each  of them once a week.

You can send me an email and I will add you to my support list and you will receive all the updates on Matts case. My email address is:
evelynhutcheson1938@gmail.com

This is a travesty, to have this kind of corruption in our government, our FBI and our court system. To lock a person away for 40 years because that person has unpopular views and opinions.  What has happened to freedom of speech, freedom of religion? What has happened to our country?

Comparative Religions...Hinduism ...By Ben Klassen


 

Comparative Religions - Part VII - Hinduism
 

Among the world's handful of so-called "great" religions, Hinduism is the most ancient of them all. Its very beginnings are lost in antiquity. The origins of superstitions, beliefs, customs and traditions date back to prehistoric times. Whereas the world's religious establishments rate it as one of the "great" religions (along with Judaism, Christianity, Mohammedanism) we Creators see nothing very great in this morbid collection of fungus on the brain. In our opinion, it is a hodgepodge collection of stupidities and superstitions at its worst. It points up what we have been saying repeatedly - the so-called "great" religions are an archaic hangover from our Stone Age ancestors, debris and clutter of the mind that is
based on superstition, gullibility and ignorance - an impervious roadblock to enlightenment, advancement and logical thinking.

Be that as it may, the number of adherents to Hinduism embrace nearly half a billion of the world's population, mostly mud peoples, and ranks third only after the Roman Catholic faith and the Moslem religion. In India alone there are 300 million faithful.

Hinduism is unique in many ways. For one thing, it has no one founder. It evolved over the millenniums as a strange and confused intermingling of many peoples' cultures and outside influences. Its beliefs and customs are therefore hard to define, and there is no one common creed, no one doctrine, that binds all Hindus together.

Basically, Hinduism is not just a religion. It is more of a vast complex of theological, metaphysical, philosophical, ethical, cultural and social institutions, whose predominant breeding ground was the subcontinent of India. It comprises of four main elements: religion, race, country and social organization. Each is bound up and is an integral factor in the life of the others, and cannot be separated. So loose and diverse is the complex nature of Hinduism that there is room for every contradictory belief and custom imaginable to be embraced within its discordant creed.

In fact, Hindus have followed almost every conceivable variety of theism, atheism, polytheism and pantheism. They have maintained conflicting standards of morality; their worship has been both idolatrous and iconoclastic, all are tolerated as long as the rules of caste are not violated.

I have stated in some previous writings that some enterprising soul has compiled a catalogue of 30 thousand different gods that superstitious and gullible fools have invented and worshipped over the ages. But I now learn that this only scratches the surface. The Hindu religion alone
has a pantheon of 33 million gods, most of which in addition to the standard list of deities, embrace local, village or even individual gods. Spooks, spirits, gods — 33 million of them — count them at leisure.

All Hindus recognize the domain of DHARMA (religious law) as the supreme agency of destiny. It is the important link between all the complexities of their belief. One of the most important tenets of Dharma is the rigid caste system that has been imbedded in the Hindu religion for thousands of years. The four main castes all belong to early Aryan society, and are based mainly on birth and color of skin. They are, in descending order:

(a) Brahman, the priestly and cultured elite.

(b) Kshatriyas, the ruling aristocracy.

(c) Vaisyas, the farmers and professional artisans.

(d) Sudras, the lowest caste, of the early Aryan society, who provided the needed menial labor.

As south India was Brahmanized, there was also an outcaste category, a fifth caste, which was non-Aryan and called the Panchamas. It consisted of the Pariahs and Harijans (God's people, the untouchables) and other destitute creatures who number around 80 million in India alone.

As far as birth, residence, heredity, occupation, and the regulation of food, drink, and marriage are concerned, each Hindu, even of the depressed classes, knows exactly where, according to custom, he or she belongs. But the above five castes are by no means the end of the complexities of the caste system. Just as the Hindus have a total of 33 million gods, national, local, etc., so too, do the local villages have a further subdivision of their own sub-castes. Here is a typical example.

The village of Chandrauti's four thousand people are housed in six hundred dwellings. In 22 of these dwell the Brahmans, members of the priestly caste, and one belongs to the household of the Kshatriyans, the warrior caste. Others are identified by sub-caste: 16 dwellings of Banias, merchants and businessmen; 40 of Mallas, fishermen and boatmen; 20 of Lohars, blacksmiths; 10 of Khatiks, who deal in fruit and
raise pigs; 15 of Ahers, cowherds; 10 of Dhobis, washer men; 5 of Gawals, sheepherders; 3 of Bhats, singers and dancers, who perform at weddings and go out into the fields at harvest; 2 of Nars, barbers; 2 of Doms, the cremation attendants; and 1 of Gonds, who fry and sell peanuts and other snacks.

There are also 50 Moslem households in this village, weavers and tailors, and 200 untouchables, the Harijans, who now may own land but still must dwell outside the village in their own compound. In almost every household, the young men follow the trade of their fathers. Although Hinduism evolved in prehistoric times, it began to take shape at about 1500 B.C.E. and we can follow its development by reviewing the sacred books that molded its development. There are six distinguished classes of literary works, all written in Sanskrit.

1. The Vedas (books of knowledge) emerging around 1500 B.C.E. There are four books (a) the Rig-Veda (psalms); (b) the Yajur- Veda (formulas); (c) the Sama-Veda (charms); (d) and the Atharva- Veda (chants). Of them all, the first is the most significant, and the oldest religious document in history.

2. The Brahmans (priestly writings) dating circa 1000-800 B.C.E. They, too, occupy a singular position in world literature and are rated as the earliest extant prose writings in the Indo-European tradition.




3. The Upanishads (seances) circa 800-600 B.C.E., are speculative treatises concerning man and the origins of the universe.

4. The Law Book of Mann, dated at about 250 B.C.E. Its twelve chapters are an impressive code of Hindu Law.

5. The Bhagavad-Gita, composed about 1 C.E., is the most highly esteemed document of all the Hindu literature. This dramatic poem suggests the possibility of universal salvation.

6. Epics and Puranas (ancient tales), produced 1250 C.E., lay the foundations of folk Hinduism ("Career of God Ramma"). The Puranas, 18 in number, are a collection of religious stories. So much for their "Sacred Books." Most, if not all, rate highly in the annals of ancient world literature.

That Hinduism is unique and a distinguished religion in a class by itself, of that there is no doubt. However, that it is "great", we Creators do not accept. There are a large number of idiosyncrasies and characteristics that if looked at from an enlightened White Man's point, are both bizarre and repugnant.

Hindus hold that all animals are sacred. Since they believe in transmigration of "souls" (reincarnation) even a rat or a snake might house their grandmother's or Aunt Minnie's soul, therefore, they dare not kill it or harm it in any way. The net result is that in a land of poverty and hunger, the country is overrun with rats, snakes, and other pests, completely out of control.

The most sacred animal of all is the cow, and woe unto any alien who would strike a cow and drive her away from a fruit stand at which she might choose to be lunching . Of course, it is no more bizarre to worship a cow than a "spirit", as do the Christians. At least you can hear, see, feel and smell a cow, which is more than you can say for a spirit. No preacher has ever given me an intelligent definition as to what a spirit
really is.

India's 200 million cattle can do no wrong, and national fiat forbids their slaughter. Hindu literature decrees that anyone who eats flesh or causes a cow to be slaughtered will rot in hell for as many years as there are hairs on the cow. Many Hindus believe that a concoction of a cow's five products - milk, urine, curd, butter, and dung - will cleanse the body inside and out. Even prominent "world leaders" like the late
Mohandas Gandhi, and the late Shri Jawaharlal Nehru, indulged in such repulsive and filthy practices.

Hindus regard the Ganges as a sacred river and its water holy. This 1,560 mile long river, winding through the heart of India, is fondly referred to as Mother Ganges. Though befouled with endless sewage, the Hindus believe it cannot be sullied, and despite the fact it is one of the dirtiest and most polluted rivers in the world, millions of Hindus bath in it annually as a religious ritual to cleanse their bodies and their soul, and the water is bottled and drunk as a purification agent all over the country.

CONCLUSION.

Though it may be the oldest and one of the most prestigious of the "great" religions, we CREATORS do not find anything very great about either the Hindus or Hinduism. It may have been around for more than three and a half millenniums, and it may even have produced some great literature (mostly under the aegis of the Aryans and their descendants who invaded India from the north about four thousand years ago).

Nevertheless, despite their caste system, it did not prevent the mongrelization of the White invaders who conquered, took charge and created an outstanding civilization four thousand years ago. Today, India is one of the densest, sickest, most over- populated, filthy, poverty-stricken of
all the large nations in the world. Its hungry, superstition-ridden 750 million are one of the most desperate and miserable population masses in the world, completely out of control and completely unable to solve any of their vast multitude of problems. They are unable to feed their
masses, nor are they able to control their population bomb. Stupidly, the White Man, (particularly, the taxpayers of the United States) is annually sending millions of tons of grain and other foods to them, gratis, thereby expanding and proliferating the misery. (See Racial Loyalty, No. 22 on the subject.) Sooner or later, this will have to end and Nature will solve the problem by ruthless means — mass starvation.

Hinduism has 477,991,300 followers throughout the world, of which there are 88,500 In North America and 475,073,000 in Asia. Such is the final drama of superstition, incompetence and stupidity. Such are the historic consequences of the White Man trying to conquer, govern and exploit an inferior mass of mud races while tolerating geographic mixing with the conquered. Let us learn once and for all Nature's
eternal lesson. India and Hinduism say it all.

Hinduism vs. Creativity...A Comparison...By Ben Klassen

 
 
A. Basis of Belief.

Hinduism is based on primitive customs, superstitions, taboos and hangovers that originated as far back as the Stone Age. They believe in Karma, the transmigration of "souls" (reincarnation) into animals, snakes, humans, or whatever. They believe that the form they transmigrate into in the "next" life depends on how well they performed in the previous life. This supposedly goes on endlessly until the soul is finally liberated into an indescribable state called NIRVANA. Life on earth is considered as a transient migration of the soul and at best, a burden to bear, not to enjoy.

Although Hinduism is complex, confused and contradictory in most of its aspects, it became more formulated as its religious scriptures, written in Sanskrit, were handed down beginning approximately 1500 B.C.E. These scriptures. The Vedas and the Upanishads, have already been described in greater detail in our accompanying text.
Of prime significance, also, is the Dharma, religious law, which details the caste system, dietary laws, religious law and even civil law. These are neither consistent, nor well organized, and are at best a confused hodgepodge of contradictions.

CREATIVITY, on the other hand, is in dire contrast to the superstitions and confusions of Hinduism. Creativity is based on an intelligent assessment of the universe in which we find ourselves, and seeks to solve the realities of life for the betterment and advancement of our own kind - the White Race. In so doing, we shun all the superstitious mind clutter that has been dumped upon us by an ignorant and superstitious past, and instead pursue reality, logic and common sense, as detailed in our THREE BASIC BOOKS, Nature's Eternal Religion, The White Man's Bible, and Salubrious Living.

B. Goals and Objectives.

Hinduism has no particular goals or objectives that have any earthly purpose or meaning. When the (White) Aryans from the north invaded the Hindu Kush and finally conquered all of India, they set about organizing and governing their new homeland. This occurred circa 2000 B.C.E. In so doing, they absorbed many of the indigenous religious customs and traditions of the black mud people they had subjugated, and were now organizing. But that is not all they absorbed. They soon found to their horror that through miscegenation, they were being absorbed and mongrelized into the bloodstream of the more fecund and more numerous aborigines. They desperately tried to prevent this catastrophe from happening as best they could. They formulated harsh civil laws, proclaimed religious taboo against it and instituted the caste system of separation. As history plainly shows, as long as there was geographic mixing of races, none of this worked, and the exemplary Aryan race that conquered India four thousand years ago was completely mongrelized into the stupid negroid masses within approximately six centuries.

The present day objectives of Hinduism, if any, are for the soul to migrate from creature to creature, until finally it ends up in some dim and distant Nirvana and is no more. Life is considered a burden and the objective (if any) is to end it all in some dim and distant future. At the same time, they want to be fertile on this earth and produce as many offspring as they can. This is, of course, a stupid contradiction that results in nothing more than endlessly proliferating the misery in an overcrowded, filthy, diseased and hunger-ridden world.

CREATIVITY, on the other hand, will have no truck with all this superstitious hocus-pocus, nor with the incompetent mud races. Instead, we seek to organize the tremendous potential of the White Race and the White Race alone, and build a Whiter and Brighter world for our future generations.

C. Racial Attitude.

The caste system, formulated and implemented by the Aryan conquerors, was not only highly racial, but was primarily based on color of the skin, and therefore indirectly on race. After six centuries the original Aryans were drowned in an overwhelming sea of negroids and the caste system no longer had any useful purpose. It then more or less classified the classes by profession and status rather than race, although the upper castes had and still have to this day, more White genes, less negroid, than do the lower castes.

However, outside of being an archaic relic of a dead past, it has little or no racial meaning anymore in today's mongrelized masses, and Hinduism embraces and welcomes any and all mud races. There are even a number of White Americans that have embraced it and stupidly find it "different" and "fascinating".

CREATIVITY, on the other hand, is highly racial and the whole religious creed is based on race - the White Race. We have learned our lesson well from the fatal mistakes made by the Aryan conquerors of India several thousand years ago, the mistakes made by the White Egyptians three to five thousand years ago, and every other White nation that has gone down the sump hole of history via mongrelization with its "cheap" negroid labor. We are determined not to make the same mistake.

We want to "conquer" no mud races, we do not want to enslave anybody, we do not want to exploit any race, nor are we looking for "cheap" yellow, black, or brown labor. We want to advance and expand our own kind, do our own work and build a Whiter and Brighter World for ourselves. This, we are determined to do until we inhabit every square mile of good territory available. The whole world is our oyster and we
will not rest until this beautiful Planet is all ours.

D. Organizational Structure.

Hinduism is one of the most disorganized of all the major religions and has no central head, only a loose scattering of temples, holy men and groups, sects, etc. No one knows exactly what the real creed of Hinduism is, as I have already outlined. The only structural organized tenets, if any, are inherent in its caste system, but it too, is loose and vaguely defined, and varies from area to area, and from village to village.


CREATIVITY is based on the Leadership Principal. Its fundamental creed and program are clearly delineated in our Basic Books. As it grows, we will continue to build our organizational structure according to the basics of the Leadership Principle, as did Adolf Hitler, and as has the
Roman Catholic church for the last 18 centuries.

As far as the White Race is concerned the Jew controlled United States government is a powerful tyrant and can be rated as Public Enemy Number One. The overwhelming issue is and remains: Either the White Race takes charge of this world in total, or it will shortly be drowned in a sea of mud.

Rev Matt Hale (Civil Case) Defendant's Motion for an Extension of the Dispositive Motion Deadline



IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT



FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO

Civil Action No. 14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW

REVEREND MATT HALE,

Plaintiff,

v.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS,

Defendant.

DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR AN EXTENSION

OF THE DISPOSITIVE MOTION DEADLINE

The Federal Bureau of Prisons ("BOP") respectfully asks this Court to extend the current dipositive motion deadline of June 30, 2017, see Doc. 155 at 10, by 31 days, to and including August 1, 2017.1 The BOP recognizes that this is a significant amount of additional time, but there is good cause for the Court to grant the motion in light of the unique circumstances present here. Because Mr. Hale is a federal prisoner who is representing himself, the BOP did not consult with him before filing this motion. See D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.1(b)(1) (setting forth an exception to duty to confer in "a motion filed in a case involving an unrepresented prisoner").

1 A thirty-day extension would make the filing deadline Sunday, July 31, 2017.



A. Mr. Hale’s incarceration in a Special Housing Unit in another state delayed the taking of depositions.

There is a lengthy record in this case detailing Mr. Hale’s housing situation over the past thirteen months. In late May 2016, Mr. Hale was transferred from the ADX to the Federal




Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 177 Filed 06/16/17 USDC Colorado Page 1 of 7


Correctional Institution in Terre Haute, Indiana ("FCI Terre Haute"). On August 25, 2016, Mr. Hale was placed in the Special Housing Unit ("SHU") at FCI Terre Haute, where he was housed for seven months. Mr. Hale was redesignated to the ADX, where he arrived on April 7, 2017. See, e.g., Declaration of Lieutenant Amy Kelley, Doc. 172-1 ¶¶ 13, 20-22.


During the seven months when Mr. Hale was in the SHU at FCI Terre Haute, undersigned counsel kept in contact with him. Mr. Hale and counsel spoke by telephone multiple times. At one point, Mr. Hale scheduled depositions of two BOP witnesses, which undersigned counsel help facilitate by locating a court reporter for Mr. Hale in Indiana and by working with FCI Terre Haute officials to arrange for video teleconferencing. Mr. Hale ultimately informed counsel that he did not wish to proceed with depositions while he was in the SHU. In his view, it would have been very difficult for him to take depositions, and to be deposed himself, because of the physical restrictions in that particular housing unit.
The BOP considered Mr. Hale’s view of the matter and agreed to work with him to enable him to conduct depositions after he left the SHU. As noted in past filings, that decision was informed in part by the fact that the BOP anticipated that the resolution of Mr. Hale’s long-term housing assignment would be sooner than it was. That did not turn out to be the case. The ADX referral process, which was conducted completely independently of this litigation, was not completed until late February 2017, see Kelley Declaration at ¶ 21, and it took additional time for the BOP to physically transport Mr. Hale to the ADX. Mr. Hale did not arrive at the ADX until April 7, 2017, and it took several more weeks for Mr. Hale’s legal materials to arrive at the ADX.



Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 177 Filed 06/16/17 USDC Colorado Page 2 of 7


B. Mr. Hale has now taken four depositions, which were completed on June 7, 2017.


Immediately after Mr. Hale’s return to the ADX, the BOP and undersigned counsel began working to help him schedule and take depositions. Undersigned counsel located two court reporting services for Mr. Hale to consider, one of which he selected.2 Mr. Hale then had to arrange for prepayment of the court reporter’s fees. That, in turn, required that telephone calls be arranged between Mr. Hale and a member of his family who would make the required prepayment. In the meantime, undersigned counsel worked with the witnesses, only one of whom is located in Colorado, to schedule the depositions. Counsel was also required to obtain approval for travel to the depositions of the out-of-state witnesses and to make the necessary travel arrangements.

2 Counsel made clear to Mr. Hale that he was free to choose any court reporter he preferred.


The BOP and undersigned counsel worked quickly, but completing these tasks took several weeks. Mr. Hale deposed the Chief of the BOP’s Sacramento Intelligence Unit on May 15, 2017, and a BOP Intelligence Operations Officer on May 16, 2017. Both of these witnesses were located in California. The following week, undersigned counsel deposed Mr. Hale. On June 2, 2017, Mr. Hale deposed a witness located at ADX Florence. By mutual agreement of the parties, Mr. Hale deposed the BOP’s retained expert on June 7, 2017, a few days after the formal discovery deadline. That schedule alteration was necessary because of unavoidable, long-planned obligations in the expert’s schedule, as well as the heavy travel schedule of undersigned counsel beginning in mid-May.



Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 177 Filed 06/16/17 USDC Colorado Page 3 of 7



In the end, Mr. Hale was able to take all depositions for which he was able to secure the necessary funds. The BOP and undersigned counsel worked diligently to ensure that happened. The fact that discovery in this matter took unusually long was the result of circumstances unrelated to this litigation and the BOP’s good-faith efforts to accommodate concerns raised by Mr. Hale.
C. The BOP needs additional time to review the recent discovery and for its witnesses to prepare their declarations.


As of the date of this filing, undersigned counsel has received three of the five deposition transcripts. It is anticipated that the other two transcripts will not be completed until next week.

The BOP expects to submit at least eight lengthy and detailed declarations in support of its motion for summary judgment. The declarants include current BOP officials, including high-level officials in the BOP’s Sacramento Intelligence Unit and its Central Office in Washington, D.C. The declarants also include two former ADX Wardens, both of whom now live outside Colorado, who made the decisions to restrict Mr. Hale’s mail privileges in the past. It is necessary for the declarants—and for undersigned counsel, too—to thoroughly review the new information revealed in the recent discovery that may be pertinent to the particular witnesses’ sworn testimony. To take one example, it is essential for the witnesses to be aware of Mr. Hale’s testimony concerning (1) information about their individual actions and (2) information that may bear on the witness’s assessment of the Creativity Movement, which is a BOP-designated Security Threat Group.

The process of reviewing the recent discovery and preparing declarations has commenced, but the work required to complete those declarations is significant and cannot be completed by June 30, 2017. Thorough declarations in final form are necessary in order for



Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 177 Filed 06/16/17 USDC Colorado Page 4 of 7



undersigned counsel to take the next step of writing a brief that clearly and accurately articulates the relevant facts and analyzes them in accordance with the applicable law. BOP officials and counsel are working and will continue to work hard, but the very recent conclusion of an intense period of key discovery does not allow them to present that information in a motion for summary judgment by the current deadline in a form that would make the Court’s consideration of the issues as efficient as possible.
D. The requested extension will not compromise any deadline or the progress of this case.


Before filing this motion for extension, the BOP took seriously its obligation to carefully consider the need for an extension of time, and the impact the requested extension may have on the litigation. For the reasons discussed above, the BOP is unable to submit a carefully written, thorough motion with the necessary supporting declarations by the current deadline. Moreover, the extension requested will not significantly affect the scheduling of the case at this point. No trial is set at this time. The BOP respectfully submits that a summary-judgment motion may serve to narrow and focus the remaining issues before the Court, even if the motion is denied or is granted only in part. Thus, the motion for summary judgment will potentially reduce the amount of court and security resources that will be required if a trial were held. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 1 (The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure "should be construed, administered, and employed by the court and the parties to secure the just speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding.").


Pursuant to D.C.COLO.LCivR 6.1(b), the BOP states that it previously requested one 60-day extension of the discovery and dispositive deadlines, which the Court granted. Doc. 88. It also requested one previous 90-day extension of the same deadlines, which the Court granted.

Rev Matt Hale (Civil Case) Response to Motions to Reconsider



IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT



FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW

REVEREND MATT HALE,

Plaintiff,

v.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS,

Defendant.
RESPONSE TO MOTIONS TO RECONSIDER

[DOCS. 162, 164, 165, 166, 170, 171]
The Court should not alter its decision to deny the motions to join submitted by fifteen of Mr. Hale’s family members, followers, and supporters outside the prison.1 The Court has not "misapprehended the facts, a party’s position, or the controlling law." Servants of Paraclete v. Does, 204 F.3d 1005, 1012 (10th Cir. 2000) (observing that "[g]rounds warranting a motion to reconsider include (1) an intervening change in the controlling law, (2) new evidence previously unavailable, and (3) the need to correct clear error or prevent manifest injustice") (citation omitted)); see also, e.g., Barber ex rel. Barber v. Colo. Dep’t of Revenue, 562 F.3d 1222, 1228 (10th Cir. 2009) (denial of Rule 59(e) motion for reconsideration is reviewed under an abuse-of-discretion standard and will not be reversed unless the appellate court has "a definite and firm

1 The BOP responds to all currently pending motions to reconsider, which includes motions brought by Mr. Hale and five others. The persons other than Mr. Hale are referred to as the "Movants" in this response. The Court should deny all pending motions to reconsider, and any future motions like them, for the reasons explained in this response.

 conviction that the lower court made a clear error of judgment or exceeded the bounds of permissible choice in the circumstances").
A. Mr. Hale is not subject to a "mail ban," but he is not allowed to discuss a BOP Security Threat Group or to hold a position of authority in that group.
The crux of the motions to reconsider is that Mr. Hale is allegedly under a "mail ban," but that is not so. The Lieutenant assigned to the Special Investigative Services ("SIS") Department at the federal prison complex in Florence, Colorado, explains the situation. See Declaration of Amy Kelley, Ex. 1 hereto.

Mr. Hale’s correspondence is being monitored in accordance with his status as a validated leader of a BOP Security Threat Group ("STG") known variously as the "World Church of the Creator," the "Church of the Creator," or the "Creativity Movement" (collectively, the "Creativity Movement"). Id. ¶ 8; see also id. ¶ 12 (discussing the difficulties of monitoring Plaintiff’s communications, in light of "[h]is status as a worldwide leader of the Creativity Movement"). Although Mr. Hale asserts that this group is his "religion," the BOP monitors the group as an STG, i.e., "an inmate group, gang, or organization acting in concert to promote violence, escape, drug, disruptive, and/or terrorist activity." Id. ¶ 9. BOP inmates who have been validated as affiliates of the Creativity Movement have documented histories of racially motivated violence or attempted violence, including Mr. Hale himself, as well as William White, who was convicted of soliciting the murder of the foreperson of the jury in Mr. Hale’s criminal case. Id. ¶¶ 9-11. Benjamin Smith, a follower of Mr. Hale’s, "killed two people and wounded nine others for the apparent purpose of avenging the decision to deny Plaintiff a license to practice law in Illinois." Id. ¶ 11.


Within the last year, security concerns regarding Mr. Hale’s communications have



Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 172 Filed 06/05/17 USDC Colorado Page 2 of 10


increased. Mr. Hale was transferred from the ADX to the Federal Correctional Institution in Terre Haute, Indiana ("FCI Terre Haute"), on May 31, 2016, where he had access to an email system. Id. ¶¶ 13-14. In June 2016, after Mr. Hale learned the name of the BOP’s retained expert in this lawsuit, he sent an email to his followers, seeking information about the "Jew" and "Jew lackey" who "besmeared [Hale’s] person[.]" Id. ¶ 15. This statement, referring to the BOP’s retained expert, was later posted on several white supremacist websites. Id. ¶ 15.

Very shortly after that, Mr. Hale spoke by telephone with a follower who referred to Mr. Hale as his "Fuhrer" and "leader," who he "will follow . . . to the ends of the earth! I would jump out of an airplane without a parachute for you! Only kidding." Id. ¶ 17. Approximately two weeks later, on July 13, 2016, a second follower sent Mr. Hale an email which informed Mr. Hale that the first follower (who called Mr. Hale his "Fuhrer") had told the second follower that he was willing "to take out any of the judges or prosecutors [in Mr. Hale’s case][.]" Id. ¶ 17. Then, the following month, Mr. Hale disseminated a "Press Release" in which he castigated the Assistant United States Attorney—now a federal magistrate judge—as a "Jewish crypto-homosexual communist who prosecuted the Reverend Matt Hale, leader of the pro-White and anti-Jewish Church of the Creator." Id. ¶¶ 18-19. Mr. Hale further asserted that the federal magistrate judge has "caused enormous grief to me, my family, and my church." Id. at ¶ 18.


These communications at FCI Terre Haute led to Mr. Hale’s re-referral to the ADX. A BOP Hearing Administrator found that, "[d]ue to his stature and influence the statements in inmate Hale’s ‘press release’ specifically referring to his hope that [the federal magistrate judge] will receive his ‘comeuppance’ are believed to be another attempt by inmate Hale to orchestrate violence against the judge, either by [Follower #1] or another disciple of similar mindset. As he

continues a pattern of this behavior, it appears hewould be unable to function in a less restrictivecorrectional environment without being a threat to others or to the secure and orderly operation of a less secure correctional facility." Id.¶ 21.2

The BOP must take into accountthecontent and context ofMr. Hale’s communicationsand the STG status of the Creativity Movement. Id. ¶¶16, 20, 22. "The SIS Departmentmanages Plaintiff’s communications in the same way that the communications of any other STGmember at ADX Florence—and specifically, anyother national leader ofan STG—are managed." Id. ¶ 23. Mr. Hale’s incoming and outgoingcommunicationscannotdiscuss or referto the STG. Id.¶¶ 24-25. Hiscommunicationscannot usethe honorifics "Reverend" or"Pontifex Maximus," both of which connoterank, stature, and control of the STG. Id. ¶ 26. These are the same rulesthat apply to all otherBOP inmates and to all other STGs in the BOP.Id. ¶ 28;see also id.¶ 27 (explaining that BOP inmates are notallowed to hold positions ofauthority in anygroup outside the prison, includingthose that are not STGs).

When the BOP was inconsistent in applying these rules to Mr. Hale, potentiallydangerous communications wereallowed to be sent. Id.¶¶18, 25. Now, to reduce the threat offuture harm,Mr. Hale isbeing treated like every inmate.Id.¶¶25, 28.But that does not mean he is under a "mail ban." He can send and receive correspondence that complies with these rules, and he has done so. Id.¶¶ 29-30.

2Thenames of non-parties to this lawsuithave been redactedfrom Attachment 2.Mr. Hale isaware of the identities ofthose persons.

B. Mr. Hale and the Movants have not established grounds for compulsory or permissive joinder.
Neither Mr. Hale nor any of the Movants has shown that compulsory or permissive joinder is appropriate under the circumstances present here, as this Court has already found.
There has been no change in Mr. Hale’s situation that would support compulsory joinder. It remains the case that each of "Mr. Hale’s claims can be resolved without consideration of the claims of the Movants," and that the Movants can file their own lawsuits. See Doc. 155 at 7.

Furthermore, the circumstances continue to support the Court exercising its discretion to deny permissive joinder. See Doc. 155 at 4-5 (noting that the Court may "disallow joinder where it would not serve the purpose of Rule 20 – promoting trial convenience expediting the resolution of disputes") (citations omitted); see also United States v. N. Colo. Water Conservancy Dist., 251 F.R.D. 590, 599 (D. Colo. 2008) (discussing factors to consider before allowing permissive intervention under Fed. R. Civ. P. 24(b)(1)(B), including "(1) whether the intervention will unduly delay or prejudice the adjudication of the original parties’ rights; (2) whether the would-be intervenor’s input adds value to the existing litigation; (3) whether the petitioner’s interests are adequately represented by the existing parties; and (4) the availability of an adequate remedy in another action.").

The BOP would be extremely prejudiced if fifteen or more new plaintiffs are added to the litigation at this advanced stage of the case. Not only would the BOP be required to defend against new legal issues raised by individuals who are not in its custody, it would also be obliged to determine the precise scope of the new plaintiffs’ claims. As this Court noted, based on the Movants’ filings, the scope of these supposed claims is hard to discern. See Doc. 155 at 6 (assuming, "without deciding, that there is some constitutional right that the Movants assert that





Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 172 Filed 06/05/17 USDC Colorado Page 5 of 10



is impaired by mail bans imposed against Mr. Hale"). Therefore, in order to know the case it would face at a potential trial, the BOP would be compelled to ask the Court to reopen discovery in order to depose each new plaintiff. Such discovery necessarily would prolong this case, where the parties have completed depositions and the BOP anticipates filing a motion for summary judgment.
Mr. Hale is an able advocate for both himself and the Movants, who obviously share his objectives in this lawsuit. See Virginia v. Westinghouse Elec. Corp., 542 F.2d 214, 216 (4th Cir. 1976) ("When the party seeking intervention has the same ultimate objective as a party to the suit, a presumption arises that its interests are adequately represented . . ."). As Mr. Hale has often noted, he has been trained as a lawyer. See Hale v. Committee on Character and Fitness for the State of Illinois, 335 F.3d 678, 687 (7th Cir. 2003) (holding that federal court lacked jurisdiction over state court’s decision to let stand the rejection of Mr. Hale’s application to practice law).

Mr. Hale has put his legal training to use in this case. He has taken depositions and has issued written discovery requests. His filings show that he understands the law and can clearly articulate legal arguments. And having served as the "highest priest" of the Creativity Movement for at least ten years, he is well situated to present a case that will take into account the interests of all those who may desire to communicate with him. Mr. Hale can call those interested persons as witnesses in this case (assuming they otherwise meet the requirements for witnesses) without the Court making them parties.3

3 In response to the BOP’s discovery request asking Mr. Hale to identify persons he may call as witnesses at trial, Mr. Hale identified Mr. Quitta and Ms. Henderson, both of whom have sought to join this lawsuit. Docs. 131, 136.

C. Mr. Hale and his followers do not have an unfettered right to communicate.
The Court was correct to express "substantial doubt that the joinder Motions actually assert any right to relief against the BOP for restrictions imposed against Mr. Hale." Doc. 155 at 7 n.6 (emphasis in original). It remains the case that "the BOP has no power to restrain or curtai[l] the movants’ speech or ability to exercise their religion." Id. And Movants can write to and receive mail from Mr. Hale, even though they cannot discuss the business of a BOP-designated STG in that mail. That is a rule that applies to all BOP inmates and their contacts, who do not have an "unimpeded" right to communicate with each other. See Doc. 162 at 4; see also, e.g., Turner v. Safley, 482 U.S. 78, 89 (1987) (prison system may impose a regulation that "impinges on inmates’ constitutional rights," if the regulation "is reasonably related to legitimate penological interests"); Hudson v. Palmer, 468 U.S. 517, 523 (1984) (recognizing that inmates retain only those First Amendment rights "not inconsistent with their status as prisoners or with the legitimate penological objectives of the corrections system"); Jones v. N. Carolina Prisoners’ Labor Union, 433 U.S. 119, 126 (1977) ("The concept of incarceration itself entails a restriction on the freedom of inmates to associate with those outside of the penal institution.").

Nor do the Movants have a "constitutional guarantee of an audience for permissible expression," as this Court observed. Doc. 155 at 6. Although they cannot discuss the ideology, activities, or business of the Creativity Movement with Mr. Hale, they are free to do so with any number of other persons who are not in federal prison. There appear to be many such persons. According to an article written by a "Rev. Logsdon," Mr. Hale’s former position of "Pontifex Maximus" was recently assumed by a man named James Costello. See Creativity Movement Toronto, article dated 28 March 2017, available at  State of the Church 44AC.. By Rev Logsdon




Case 1:14-cv-00245-MSK-MJW Document 172 Filed 06/05/17 USDC Colorado Page 7 of 10


. The Movants can discuss Creativity with these persons and others. They can discuss any other topic with Mr. Hale, provided their discussions do not jeopardize public safety or the safety and security of the institution. Ex. 1 ¶¶ 29, 30. http://creativitymovementtoronto.blogspot.com/2017/03/state-of-church-44ac-by-rev-logsdon.html




D. Conclusion
The Court should deny the motions to reconsider. Docs. 162, 164, 165, 166, 170, 171.
