An Alarming Letter From January 6 Peaceful Protester Nathan DeGrave, From His Jail Cell in Washington DC

 

An Alarming Letter From January 6 Protester Nathan DeGrave, From His Jail Cell in Washington DC

October 30, 2021

A twitter thread shared by Brad Geyer relays a letter presented by a jailed J6 detainee held inside the Washington DC Department of Corrections. [Twitter Link Here]  The content of the letter written by a detainee named Nathan DeGrave is very disturbing.  The allegations within the letter are alarming; however, they are supported by other detainees who have described similar conditions.

Dear fellow Americans:

I never thought I’d write a letter like this, but we’re living in very different times. This is my cry for help.

My name is Nathan DeGrave, and as a non violent participant at the Jan 6th rally, I’ve spent the last 9 months detained as a political prisoner in pod C2B at the DC Department of Corrections (DOC) otherwise known as DC’s Gitmo.

The conditions here for Jan 6ers have been inhumane. In fact, some inmates are even begging to be transferred to GUANTANAMO BAY, where even THEY have more acceptable standards.

Class action LAWSUITS are being filed against this prison; and even the ACLU has gotten involved. Senators Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene have since attempted to gain access to this facility and inspect the conditions of the jail, only to be denied.  The vile filth of what has become our daily life is being illegally HIDDEN from the members of OUR OWN CONGRESS.

So let me tell you about what me and many of the other Jan 6ers have been experiencing in DC’s Gitmo. It is my hope that with MEDIA EXPOSURE and the awareness of the American public, that SOMETHING may be done and this never happens to anyone ever again.

♦ OUR CONDITIONS – For the first 120 days in DC’s Gitmo, Jan 6ers experienced DAILY LOCKDOWNS for 23-24 HOURS before being allowed to leave our small 120 sq. ft cell. The PHYSICAL and MENTAL ANGUISH that results from this kind of SEVERE ISOLATION has caused many people to go on a RAPID mental decline.

As a result, a large percentage of us are HEAVILY MEDICATED with anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs, which helps to cope with the psychological and mental ABUSE we endure.

Many times, the little rec we DO receive is STRIPPED AWAY if our cell isn’t up to the standards of the guard on duty. This changes from day to day. Jan 6ers have lost rec time and out of cell activity ANY TIME news interviews about the jail are aired on TV, people speak up about our conditions, or rallies are held in our name. We’ll probably have a lockdown upon the publishing of this letter. So I have already warned those I know in advance.

Masks are WEAPONIZED and used against us, even though we NEVER leave the facility. Officers have walked in with the SOLE INTENTION of needing to write 20-30 disciplinary reports against Jan 6ers, which adversely effects our chances of release and causes loss of privileges, phone time and commissary. Masks need to be covering both the nose and mouth AT ALL TIMES or we are threatened and locked down in our cells. Jan 6ers are always respectful to the employees around us, but CO’s maintain the need to invent reasons for discipline.

PRIVILEGED LEGAL DOCUMENTS have been CONFISCATED and gone missing from various cells, and HIGHLY SENSITIVE discovery (video evidence under attorney/client privilege) is watched by employees during our legal calls.

Jordan Mink, for example, had all discovery TAKEN by ERT officers on August 23rd despite the objection of his attorney. They handcuffed him, searched his room, and then proceeded to take all video evidence in his possession. Additionally, legal visits take 2-3 WEEKS or more to be scheduled, leaving little time to discuss our defense and prepare for trial.

The EXTREME medical neglect in this facility has caused a variety of adverse illnesses and disease. Some show signs of scurvy. And some even have Covid like symptoms, but medical personnel have refused to treat it.

Christopher Worrell, for example, is an inmate with Cancer, who also broke his hand in prison and requires surgery. Both have been completely ignored. Federal judge Royce Lamberth got to the point where on October 12th, he filed contempt of court charges against the warden of the DC DOC, claiming that Worrell’s civil rights have been violated, and demanding the U.S attorney general inquire further about his and other possible violations.

Another inmate, Peter Stager, WAITED FOUR MONTHS to receive his CPAP breathing machine, and has needed an MRI since spring, which has also been ignored by staff.

The harsh, unlivable conditions of our unit has caused health hazards that defy Department of Health regulations. And on at least five occasions, RAW SEWAGE has overflowed our unit, causing human fecal matter to flood the floors and rooms. That’s also in addition to the MOLD on cell walls, as well as the rusty pipes, and DIRTY WATER that flows from these sinks. White rags TURN BROWN when exposed to the water from our faucets.

We are undergoing SEVERE NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES and STARVATION. For breakfast this morning, I received a tray of flavorless paste, two slices of bread, and a slice of bologna. Lunches usually consist of rice and beans, but we’ll get cold chicken/beef patties if we are lucky. For dinner, we are sometimes fed a diet of cheese sandwiches, and bologna and cheese 4 to 5 times per week.

Without commissary, people like myself are FORCED TO STARVE. I suffer from HEADACHES and NAUSEA on an almost REGULAR BASIS from the malnutrition and constant hunger I am subjected to. I have lost ALMOST 15 POUNDS since I’ve been detained.

Our rights to personal hygiene are also totally neglected. Razors are PROHIBITED, and inmates are forced to either go unshaved and grow long beards, or use a razor free cream that BURNS and IRRITATES the skin. But many other jails have allowed the use of razors without incident. Haircuts are also PROHIBITED from unvaccinated inmates.

For me, it’s been nearly 9 months. I look VIRTUALLY UNRECOGNIZABLE in the condition I’m in. I fear even my family would not recognize me.

Contact with the outside world, from legal visits to seeing loved ones is HIGHLY RESTRICTED. After in-person visits, legal or otherwise, we are forced to undergo humiliating STRIP SEARCHES, despite ALL visitors being thoroughly checked for contraband. If it’s a legal visit, we are placed in a 14 day quarantine, with no out of cell time; EVEN IF your attorney is VACCINATED and tests NEGATIVE for Covid. Visits with friends or family members, for unvaccinated inmates, are NEVER ALLOWED.

As a result, many people have skipped critical meetings with their council, and NEVER get an opportunity to see friends or family. VIDEO VISITATION, while available to the rest of the jail, is RESTRICTED in the Jan 6 pod. Mail is delayed for MONTHS, and phone calls are limited to a MAXIMUM of pre approved 12 numbers. If there’s anyone else in our extended family or otherwise we’d like to call, we’re pretty much out of luck.

RELIGIOUS SERVICES, protected by the 1st amendment, are NOT provided to Jan 6ers. Neither are in person classes or other activities available to the rest of the jail. An inmate named Ryan Samsel, instead attempted to organize his own bible study inside the pod, until he was viciously BEATEN and LEFT FOR DEAD by correctional officers. He suffered a broken eye socket and brain damage as a result of the vicious attack. He’s now permanently blind in one eye. On another occasion, Scott Fairlamb was confronted by an officer in the middle of the night, and his life was threatened, once the officer’s body cam was disabled. Many, like myself, are afraid they could be the next victim.

And last but not least, we experience racism from many guards on a daily basis, being the ONLY WHITE REPUBLICANS in the entire jail. The false narrative is has been passed around the jail and to corrections officers that we are “white supremacists” (we are NOT). The inmate population is predominantly black, so we are at risk being here because of this false narrative. The guards are mostly liberal migrants from Africa who have been conditioned to hate us, and hate America.

Jan 6ers have been mocked, beaten and ridiculed by guards for singing the National Anthem. The Corrections Officers despise our politics and the love we have for this country. At one point, an officer even yelled “FUCK AMERICA!”, and threatened to lock us down FOR A WEEK if we attempted to sing the National Anthem again.

♦ THE TRUTH ABOUT MY STORY – Finally, I feel like I should touch briefly on the government and prosecutor’s portrayal of who I am as a person.

No, I am not a terrorist, extremist or any of the other names I’ve been called by the government. More than anything, I am a red blooded patriot and I love this country more than anything.

I am being unfairly prosecuted and definitely overcharged. I never assaulted anyone, destroyed property, or stolen anything. I walked through wide open doors to enter the Capitol, along with my camera crew hoping to get the rally on video. I was never even armed at any point inside the Capitol.

Our goal was to make a documentary, and get likes and shares on social media. Yes I wore a costume (that the prosecutor refers to as paramilitary gear and body armor) but it was for the movie and was nothing of the sort. And yet, 9 months later here I sit, with 10 years worth of charges and no hope for a future. The surveillance footage shows absolutely no signs of assault, and despite attempts by media companies to get it released to the public, the government has denied it.

I think that’s because they are fully aware that this footage is questionable at worst, and exonerates me at best. Please don’t be fooled by the media. I am a loving and peaceful person with no history of violence.

This weaponized DOJ and their blatant resentment of my respect for President Donald Trump is putting me in a situation that makes me feel helpless in my current situation.

HOW YOU CAN HELP – Despite me and other Jan 6ers experiencing these unthinkable conditions, all of us remain POSITIVE and HOPEFUL that, in the end, JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL. We maintain a LOVE for this country and the Constitution like no other. The only thing keeping us going is our undying patriotism, the camaraderie between one another and our faith in God.

Please…SHARE THIS LETTER with EVERYONE you know: friends and family, senators, representatives, political organizers, civil rights groups and media outlets.
The truth HAS to get out. And the jail MUST PAY for what they are doing to this country’s citizens.

As a result of this unlawful detainment the last 9 months, I have lost everything. The successful business I spent 13 years of my life working on, my apartment in Las Vegas, social media accounts with a lifetime of memories… you name it.

The government has essentially CANCELLED ME. Not only that, but following the arrest, my best friend of 12 years robbed my apartment, stole my cat, and hacked my personal Instagram with 100,000+ followers. Since then, I often go between feelings of hopefulness and moments of depression. I wonder if I can ever recover from this, but I have to remind myself to never give up.

There are major medical complications I now struggle with as a result of the jail’s neglect of my health since being here. If there is any way I hope to recover, my only hope are the ones who are reading this. I was on top of the world once upon a time, and that life seems now only like a distant memory.

If there’s anything you can do to help, I would appreciate anything at all. Inmates here are being extorted with lack of nutrition, forcing me to spend most of what’s left on commissary which I can no longer afford.

I need desperate help with my legal expenses and just help staying alive in here with commissary and all the expenses I still have on the outside as my livelihood and life has been stripped away from me. Thank you for any her you can afford, even if it is a few dollars it goes a long way in here.

Sincerely and with love,

Nathaniel DeGrave

U.S.-made A-29 Super Tucano aircraft officially inducted into Nigerian Air Force by Biden can be used against #BiafraLand

U.S.-made A-29 Super Tucano aircraft officially inducted into Nigerian Air Force and ok'd for use against #BiafraLand as Biafra has been falsely designated as terrorist!


Would President Donald Trump have gone through with the delivery of Tucano Jets to Nigeria and continued the training of Nigerian military enabling them with this high powered attack system? We can't know that now but the Biden administration is trusting that Nigeria won't. Does Joe even care?

It has been announced by Nigerian press that "the United States may have placed some restrictions on the use of the newly acquired A-29 Super Tucano light attack and trainer aircraft for the Nigerian Air Force (NAF)." That restriction is defined as not to use the Tucano Jets against a population unless they have been proscribed as terrorists. 

The fact that the Buhari administration, since 2017 had designated the Indigenous People of Biafra as a terrorist organization is all that is needed to give permission to attack the South East of Nigeria, which is #Biafra or also known as #BiafraLand, currently consisting of approximately 70,000,000 people who are Christian and Jewish people and who seek their independence from Nigeria again after the failed Biafran Civil War 50+ years ago. 

Biafra population density of about 500 persons per square mile is the highest in the whole of Africa. 

Biafra Leader Nnamdi Kanu is in DSS custody awaiting his next court date of 10November2021 on the sham charges which emanated after his extraordinary rendition (kidnapping) from Kenya. The world was on edge waiting to see if he would be produced in court. So far, only his legal team had been allowed to see him. On 21October2021 we saw that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is alive, after his capture on 29th June 2021 and subsequent kidnapping and torture in Kenya and Nigeria. Nnamdi Kanu is a British citizen but so far as known, has not received a visit from any representative of Britain.

Extraordinary rendition, irregular rendition or forced rendition, is the government-sponsored abduction and extrajudicial transfer of a person from one country to another with the purpose of circumventing the former country’s laws on interrogation, detention, extradition and/or torture.

The issue of extraordinary rendition lacks more than two available case law for application in this case. The element of torture must be present in extraordinary rendition. The term was coined by the CIA after the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and used to bring suspected terrorists back to USA. The ACLU took one case of an innocent victim of CIA extraordinary rendition to the international tribunal.

The United Nations Convention Against Torture, which the U.S. Senate ratified at the urging of then-President Ronald Reagan, and a 1998 federal statute both explicitly prohibit extraordinary rendition. Yet there has been no accountability for those who authorized and carried out these crimes. Not one victim has yet received an apology, let alone a day in court.

From Extraordinary Results in Extraordinary Rendition by Alexander Turner, Southern Methodist University Law Review:

Victims of extraordinary rendition have alleged being subjected to a variety of interrogation methods that are prohibited under U.S. and international law at the hands of CIA officials operating “black site[s]” or “dark prison[s].”10 The treatment is degrading: victims have been stripped naked, blindfolded, shackled, and forced to make recorded false confessions.11 The physical pain and psychological torment are severe: they have been deprived of sleep and food; subjected to loud noise and blinding light twenty-four hours a day; cut from head to toe with a scalpel for the purpose of pouring hot stinging liquids into the open wounds; and shocked with electrodes on ear lobes, nipples, and genitals.

Just as Nigeria used United States of America precedents in the extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu, their prior designation of  him and his 70,000,000 followers as terrorist, the Tucano Jets will be implemented.  

Just as Biden left all the weaponry with the Taliban in the negligent exiting of Afghanistan and hoped that the Taliban will behave themselves, in this debacle, Joe joins a vicious conspiracy to perpetrate genocide on an innocent population with the Tucano Jet tools in the oil-rich and heavily populated Biafra. In the Biafra case, I will go as far as saying that Biden is acting with intent to harm the Indigenous People of Biafra. 

Please #Pray for Biafra.

The day before...


PRESS BRIEFING ON DEVELOPMENTS IN MAZI NNAMDI KANU’S CASE

COMING UP ON THE 21ST DAY OF OCTOBER 2021:

"We, the members of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s legal team ably led by my humble self, wish to bring to the attention of the public of interesting developments in this Case, since our Client was abducted in Kenya on the 19th Day of June, 2021, and consequently extraordinarily rendered to Nigeria. His subsequent secret appearance in Court on the 29th day of June, 2021, and his non-production in Court on the 26th day of July, 2021, as well as what we expect in Court on the 21st day of October 2021.

This press briefing became compelling against the backdrop of the seven-count smokescreen Amended Charge filed against our Client last week Friday, after waiting for the over-advertised/hyped amendment for over three (3) months.

You may recall that upon the abduction of our Client in Kenya on the 19th Day of June, 2021, and his extraordinary rendition to Nigeria afterwards, he was secretly brought to Court on the 29th day of June, 2021, without our knowledge.

We, his lawyers were not notified of the proceedings of the 29th June, 2021, hence, our unavoidable absence. The matter was consequently adjourned to the 26th day of July, 2021, for commencement of hearing.

This matter then came up on the 26th day of July, 2021, for commencement of hearing in the case, but our Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was not produced in Court, neither was there any plausible convincing reason(s) for his absence in Court on that day. An action which was in flagrant violation of Court Order made by His Lordship – Hon. Justice Nyako, for him to be brought to Court on that 26th Day of July, 2021.

Furthermore, in view of the long adjournment of the case already on record, a decision which we believed may have been informed by the annual court’s vacation which commenced during the said period, and in view of the Court’s disposition to hear the matter during the vacation, we applied to the Hon. Chief Judge of the Federal High Court for issuance of a Fiat, to enable His Lordship to proceed with the hearing on the case.

This application was considered on its merit, and the Honourable Chief Judge in his wisdom, consequently granted our application for Fiat. Approval of this request by the Honourable Chief Judge of the Federal High Court was communicated to all parties in the case, including the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation vide the office of the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation.

Despite being served with the approval for FIAT, and schedule for court’s sitting on the case during the period under reference, the office of the Director of Public Prosecution deliberately failed, neglected and/or refused to present any of his representatives to honour the invitation for an agreement on a convenient date for the trial to commence on the authority of the Fiat, even after several reminders.

The hard fact we are compelled to swallow today, is that despite the approval for Fiat duly given by the Honourable Chief Judge, and the readiness expressed by the court even in the open court, to proceed with the hearing once Fiat is granted, the Federal Government of Nigeria absconded from Court.

As the world is now aware, tomorrow, being the 21st day of October, 2021, is the date on record, collectively agreed in open Court by all parties for the commencement of hearing in our Client’s case, we therefore, demand as follows:

Nnamdi Kanu’s US Lawyer, Bruce Fein, to drag Nigerian Govt To International Criminal Court

>>>> In case you missed it! <<<<

Bruce Fein, Esq from Washington DC in the United States of America, a celebrated international human rights attorney, is currently on the ground in Nigeria and being denied access to his client, Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. Mr. Kanu, (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu) was kidnapped, held and tortured for over a week in Kenya by Nigerian DSS thugs and then taken to Nigeria and thrown in prison. 


The President of Nigeria, has been hunting for Nnamdi Kanu since that horrible day, September 10, 2017, when Nnamdi Kanu escaped death by the hands of the Buhari Nigerian military who murdered 27 unarmed family, friends, plus Jack the Dog living in and around Mr. Kanu's family home.


 “A declaration that the military invasion of the Applicant’s building and premises at Isiama, Afaraukwu Ibeku, Abia State on 10th September 2017 ..."

Bruce Fein and Ifeanyi Ejiofor discuss the dramatic dimensions of Nnamdi Kanu's kidnapping, false arrest. and torture trial headed for the ICC. Other aspects of this highly dynamic situation include Mr Fein making it clear that he represents and absolutely speaks for Nnamdi Kanu who is still being held by the Nigerian DSS.
