Ward Dean Transferred To North Carolina

04/12/06 Dr. Dean was put on a bus this morning headed for the
mental hospital in North Carolina. The court, at the behest of
Doc's attorney, ordered a psych evaluation. We don't know how long
it will take him to get there, but he should be there from 4 to 6
weeks once he arrives. After that, he will be returned for

I have sent the following letter to Judicial Watch and others
without response. After we received your email from J.A.I.L., we
tried to send it to them, but it was always kicked back. Could you
please forward it to them, or give us their e-mail?


Dear J.A.I.L.,

Dr. Ward F. Dean is my personal physician and friend. He is an
officer and a gentleman, West Point graduate, retired Navy
Commander, medical doctor and a true American patriot of the first

Several years ago, Dr. Dean discovered the truth about the fiat
money system foisted upon the American people by Congress, through
the Federal Reserve, and the fraudulent administration of the income
tax. After much study of Supreme Court cases, the Internal Revenue
Code, historical documents, and many books, he could no longer
participate in the federal tax scam in good conscience. He settled
on the method of Irwin Schiff, filing a 1040 zero return with an
affidavit stating why he was filing at all, why he was filing a zero
return, and why he believed he had no liability for federal income

After doing this for seven years, the government began to harass him
and ultimately ordered a grand jury investigation. Dr. Dean
addressed all their correspondence and requested to meet with the
grand jury. He also called a meeting with the IRS agent
investigating him and asked to see the agent's oath of office, job
description, delegation of authority from the Secretary of the
Treasury to conduct the investigation and repeatedly requested to
see the law that made him liable for any federal tax or imposed any
duty on him to file any returns. The agent would not answer any of
those concerns and got so angry that he threw a document at Dr.
Dean, knocking over Dr. Dean's tape recorder.

In the end, the government ignored everything Dr. Dean presented,
while stubbornly refusing to offer any substantive answers to his
questions. The government finally gave a pretense of allowing Dr.
Dean to testify before the grand jury, but cut him off before he had
an opportunity to discuss the law. Ten minutes after leaving the
federal courthouse, he was ambushed by a multi-jurisdictional task
force consisting of Florida Highway Patrol, Escambia County
Sheriff's deputies and IRS agents and was arrested at gun point by
M-16-bearing officers.

From the arraignment by the magistrate to the end of his trial, the
government never once cited the specific statute that Dr. Dean
allegedly violated other than a penalty statute.

The IRS's manual requires that they submit a Form 9131 before they
can legally call for a grand jury investigation. Dr. Dean
submitted a FOIA request for the required Form 9131, but it was
denied. He appealed and that was denied. He finally sued them and
got the document, but everything on it was redacted except his name.
To this date, IRS has refused to supply him with that document.

Suspecting irregularities in the selection of the petit jury and
grand jury, Dr. Dean requested to inspect the grand and petit jury
lists. The government finally allowed the inspection a couple days
before trial. He sent two private investigators to Tallahassee,
Florida. The investigators were not given a complete list of
potential grand jurors. Finally, on the morning of the trial, the
judge called Tallahassee. People from the clerk's office said they
gave the investigators the lists, and that Dr. Dean's agents were
telling a bold-faced lie. The judge had the lists e-mailed to the
courthouse and they were given to Dr. Dean and his attorneys. The
lists revealed that the foreperson of the grand jury who signed the
indictment wasn't even on the list, and many of the questionnaires
filled out by the jurors were incomplete. Some questionnaires
reflected the names of persons born overseas, some did not even bear
a checkmark in the citizenship box, and some did not show that the
potential jurors were residents of the district long enough to

Even though there were obvious flaws in the grand jury records, the
judge ignored the issue and proceeded with the trial. The lead
defense attorney and the judge had some discussion about this, but
when the transcript finally came out, that conversation was omitted.
At the conclusion of the trial, Dr. Dean was handcuffed, shackled
and dragged off to jail, while the clerk scooped up the jury
records, even though the Supreme Court case of Test v. United
States declared that the defendant had an "unqualified right" to
inspect, copy and use those records in his defense.

The prosecution portrayed Dr. Dean as a belligerent, greedy,
anti-government radical. The (now retired) IRS agent lied under
oath and the DOJ and IRS knew he was lying, as they had access to
the transcript of a meeting that the IRS agent lied about during his
testimony. In closing arguments, the AUSA asked the jurors if they
were going to believe the dedicated IRS agent, or the lying
Defendant (in so many words). Moreover, they claimed that Dr. Dean
promoted an illegal drug, even after Dr. Dean supplied the
government with written proof that the substance was an FDA-approved
Schedule III substance and was perfectly legal.

Although the judge quoted portions of the Supreme Court case of
Cheek v. United States, in the Court's final jury instructions, the
instructions were actually opposite to what the Cheek decision
required, and came as close to a directed verdict as anything we've
ever seen.

Dr. Dean was denied bond and has been in jail ever since his
conviction. This case stinks to high heaven. The indictment and
arrest warrant were sealed, even though Dr. Dean was open and above
board from the beginning. Dr. Dean was charged with six counts of
income tax evasion and one count of impeding the IRS, the first six
being felonies. The last charge was particularly bizarre. The IRS
issued a summons to his bank for books and records. Dr. Dean wrote
a letter to the bank and told them that if they released his
personal information without first making sure that the agent had
the proper, legal authority to issue the summons that he would sue
the bank. For writing that letter, Dr. Dean was tried and
convicted of a crime. The IRS never took any positive, lawful steps
by civil procedures to collect any supposed taxes owed, but went
straight to criminal prosecution. No assessment was ever produced,
no delinquent tax was ever verified and no law was ever quoted
imposing any obligation on Dr. Dean.

We can furnish you with the full court docket (except those items
that were sealed by the court), as well as the trial transcript.
Attached is Dr. Dean's CV (Curriculum Vitae) to give you some
indication of Dr. Dean's commitment to America. This fine man has
been railroaded into jail by fraud and deception, from both the DOJ
attorneys and their tag-team partner, Judge Lacey Collier.

We were hoping to find someone like J.A.I.L. who could help Dr.

Thank you so much,
