Buhtz, Barton

The purpose of this board is to track the status of activity, cases, and ultimately the incarceration or fines against TP promoters and certain high-profile TPs.

Defendant Buhtz complains that the court has failed to respond to some of his "motions". The court construed one letter 28 from Buhtz as a motion to resubmit the indictment.

The court responded by setting a hearing on that request, which was vacated upon appointment of counsel for defendant on 12/19/2006. Defendant Buhtz requested trial by jury 24. The court set a jury trial. The other "motions 25, 26 and 27 were really speeches rather than true motions. The court determined no response was necessary, but did direct the clerk to docket those items so the record will be complete. Defendant also has filed a "Motion for More Definite Statement Brought by Special Visitation" 35 which, inter alia, demands a definition of the terms "United States of America" and "person".

This Notice of Hearing is a riot. Barton has noticed the presiding DC Judge Panner, an IRS agent and the US Attorney for a hearing in the Mayor's office in Tujunga, California on August 24, 2007 for them to provide rebuttal evidence concerning his affidavits and (I quote from the Notice):

All parties are to bring to the hearing their oaths of office, evidence of membership in any associations (i.e. BAR), drivers license, proof of insurance, canons of ethics and articles of incorporation (if applicable) and any other documents which have previously been demanded.


What will Barton do when no one shows at the hearing on August 24, 2007?

Some of the new documents from the above docket that I found particularly interesting:

Government's Witness List
http://www.cheatingfrenzy.com/buhtz81.pdf

Buhtz' Trial Memorandum
http://www.cheatingfrenzy.com/buhtz91.pdf

Buhtz' Exhibit List
http://www.cheatingfrenzy.com/buhtz90.pdf

Buhtz' Expert Notice
http://www.cheatingfrenzy.com/buhtz88.pdf

Looks like Buhtz is placing his eggs in one basket: ex Fed employee (and Heidi Guedel's hero) Walker Todd.

Does anyone remember whether Todd was able to testify as an expert in the Montana Freemen trials?

I used to know these things without resorting to searching, but the famous/infamous Todd affidavit that so many "no-money-lent" whackos point to was in a Michigan civil case, if I recall. I want to say the defense he supplied the affidavit for lost the case but I can't remember which court it was in nor can I recall the defendants' names.

What I do know for certain is that versions of the Todd affidavit and theory as propounded by the debt elimination crowd have never resulted in a win.

Thanks, Nikki. I did find my copy of the un-highlighted .pdf but the files with Todd-related cases are archived and I'll have to have one of the techies find them at this juncture.

Anyone know what happened in this case?

I skimmed back through the great affidavit, and it keeps coming to mind, how did this clown ever hide out with the Fed for 20 years and then be willing to pass out this drivel?

I am also under the impression, that while Mr W is more than willing to do the affidavit bit, that he is quite the wallflower when actually asked to dance and really testify in court, and in fact has refused to in several cases.

The curious thing, is that I called both the Chicago and NY Fed personnel offices, and they had no record of the loquacious Mr Walker.

Anyone know anything further about the darling of the Mortgage Elimination crowd?

Does anyone know if they actually let Walker Todd testify or if that was just for show. I am curious as to how the court received the material.

The docket for the Trial day 3 listed above says:

Defendant Buhtz' expert witness Dr. Walker Todd was sworn and testified; Evidence adduced. Defendants rest.

but I don't know the extent of the testimony.

My only question was if they let any of it stand, since Todd's stuff is pure fiction and nonsense. I still don't see how he can qualify as an expert when he is as delusional as the people he is testifying for, or how they got by with entering it in the first place, and this is what I am curious about, the rebuttal or whateverr they did.

The Govt and the defense have both filed sentencing memoranda. The Govt recommends a Guideline range of 97-121 months, based on various enhancements such as leadership role. See here.

It's the defense memo that's a hoot, though - and because it's straight, not because it's TP hoohaw. First of all, Barton blames Hendrickson: "Several witnesses testified that they learned about the theory and process form (sic) other sources, including other individuals and the book Cracking the Code". Sin verguenza, Barton.

Second (and funnier) Barton argues for a downward departure on the basis that the crap he was selling (pardon me, giving away in exchange for donations) was so ridiculous that it could never have worked anyway. Really.
None of the bills of exchange bore any likelihood of succeeding. Mr. Buhtz’s own expert witness, Dr. Walker F. Todd, testified in essence that the bills of exchange were doomed to fail because UCC Trust Accounts do not exist. The government’s expert, Matthew Johnson, testified that the government was aware of that information. Thus there was never a possibility that any of the
bills of exchange could have caused the loss that their authors intended.
Allow me to rephrase: "Yeah, I was a thief, but a really dumb thief."

I'm afraid that some Sooeyheads' golden idol is irreparably tarnished.

It was my understanding a book by the same name preceded Hendrickson. And, Hendrickson says nothing about Redemption Theory in his book [or, at least, doesn't support it].

Alternatively named, "Redemption in Law"

Redemption in Law (highly recommended)
(New Second Edition)
July 2000
Theory and Practice
"Cracking the Code"

The hottest book in America Today!
Discover how your govermentally-created, ALL-CAPITAL LETTERS-WRITTEN NAME, which is a corrupted, non-standard English version of your true name and compromises you with an entirely separate legal entity that-is used by banks, government agencies, and corporations to attack and exploit you legally and financially. Learn hot to get yourself proofed up against such legal predators and commercial pirates, who would come after you merely because you did not undertand the enourmous legals significance between your true name (intial letters only capitalized) and your name in ALL-CAPITAL LETTERS. This book contains practical information about the biggest breakthrough in commercial and legal freedom to come along in the last 6,000 years. The architects of this master plan never expected that their secret would ever be discovered.book $125.00 (US Funds)


There are links to purchase, but they lead nowhere in particular.

Thanks for the memoranda.

And here all this time I thought Todd was supposed to be exonerating him by proving the evil banking system didn’t exist or some such nonsense.

Seems like having Todd testify for you is more akin to a sure fire way to get yourself convicted, didn’t go Buhtzy or the dim duo any good, and it seems his track record other places isn't any better-you'd think they'd wise up by now, and here he has been touted as the great guru of the vapor money school, and yet somehow he never seems to get around to testifying to that.

Very curious I would say.
