Stonewalled: There is No Hope for Charles Dyer
9.27.2015 Author’s Note: There is a point that needs to be clarified. The documents that are needed to prove Dyer’s innocence (or guilt) are owned by Janet Dyer. The paywall isn’t an issue for her, but it is for me. As is proven in this article, she already has the documents but won’t release them because she doesn’t trust the applicability of Rule #31.

For the last 5 months or so, I have been doing as much as I possibly can to assist the ever-growing number of political prisoners who have been inhumanely caged by this violent institution known as the State. Kyle Rearden and I spent a lot of time acquiring, converting, and making available these court documents, in an attempt to provide transparency of the judicial branch by way of an extensive (free downloadable) archive. As of yet, I am unable to find another archive quite like it.
Judicial transparency is a major issue when it comes to the monopolistic adjudication system in this geographical location known as the United States, and it was the major incentive for the extensive hours we put into arranging these PDF files, in order to make them publicly accessible. As you can clearly tell, we are doing what we can to free those already imprisoned, as well as keep others out of the government dungeons.
In this article, I will lay out everything that transpired in my short-lived (but, very revealing) interactions with supporters of Charles Dyer, including Janet Dyer, his mother, and Karyn Marie Hardiman, Charles’ current girlfriend.
Before continuing, I’d like to rebuke one thing, that was unfortunately propagated by a Charles Dyer supporter, more specifically, Karyn Marie Hardiman. She claimed that my motives for bringing transparency to the Charles Dyer legal saga are the ones in question, whereas hers are not. I have demonstrated, time and again, that I have one agenda, and that is freedom. The end goal has changed, and our weekly listeners have seen my transition, but the agenda has remained the same. Every second I’m not working or attending higher level indoctrination lectures, I am researching, collaborating, or developing original content (in the form of articles, show preparation, etc.). I have withheld nothing (including my legal name and where I live) and somehow, apparently, my motives are the ones in question.
Charles, otherwise known as J4P (July4Patriot) to those in the Patriot community, was a YouTuber and Patriot. When he finished his time serving in the Marines, he realized that things were very wrong in this country and started to speak publicly about a variety of grievances. He gained a significant following and this drew the attention of the government.
In 2010, Dyer was charged with possession of an illegal weapon, more specifically, a Colt M-230 millimeter grenade launcher. That charge was dropped, but another one arose, which he was eventually convicted of, and is currently serving a 30 year sentence for: the molestation of his daughter, Hayley.
There has been a lot of both, controversy and speculation, through the years. There have also been a significant number of people who have given up on Charles, due to the lack of transparency that surrounds his entire case, and no matter how much effort was put into it, the questions remain unanswered.
There has been a complete stonewall, and unfortunately, it is not due to a lack of judicial transparency. Rather, this stonewalling comes from those that are closest to him; specifically, his mother and his current girlfriend.
Grab some popcorn and brace yourselves, because this ain’t pretty.
I was introduced to Charles Dyer in preparation for an interview with Kyle Rearden from The Last Bastille blog. Dyer was one of the case studies in our examination of activist legal defense fund scams.
Hearing about his case, I was disgusted by some of his supporters scamming donators and went on a mission to figure out what happened, by retrieving the court documents that have been unavailable for so long. I searched on Facebook, and found a group titled, “Justice for Charles Dyer.” Now, I can’t guarantee the accuracy of that title, as I was ostracized from the group.
After I joined that group, I posted the link to the court documents archives on Liberty Under Attack, that we had already been able to acquire. A lady named Karyn Marie Hardiman was very active in the group, and further investigation revealed that she was Charles’ girlfriend. I sent her a message on Facebook telling her that I would be happy to host the court documents on my website, and do anything I could to assist Charles, by providing transparency. She gave me her phone number and I contacted her that evening.
I introduced myself and told her what I was able to do and she told me that she would get me any documents she could. She also brought me up to speed with the current happenings, which consisted of appeals, petitions, and other desperate attempts. She first directed me toward the “Files” tab in the aforementioned group. I informed her that I had already been there and retrieved all of the documents available.
It is worth a mention that the documents were hosted on Scribd. I have a burning hatred for that archival outlet, because if you aren’t a paying member, you have to “make a contribution” for whatever document you download. It is a major pain in the ass, and the worst part is that the “official court documents” available there, were merely just JPG’s pasted into Word documents. That meant that Kyle and I had to save every image, and convert them into PDF’s. Additionally, some of the documents were missing pages, which is a major problem, as it reduces the authenticity of them significantly.
Even before I knew how to create archives and make them easily accessible, I was furious at the lack of organization and accessibility by this Facebook group. I also gained a greater insight as to why Charles is still rotting away in a government dungeon.
As I mentioned previously, I posted a link to the archive that Kyle and I were able to acquire and make available on the LUA website. A different lady named Nancy Genovese contacted me, via a comment on the post. Linked, is a ZIP file with our entire conversations, but for the sake of time, I will condense a conversation that spanned multiple days.
(Author’s note: I didn’t think to screenshot our conversation on the group wall, so the files above are strictly private messages between Genovese and I.)
I initially messaged her to comment on her terrible archiving “skills”.
The “10 Appeal Filed By Jackson” Scribd document is 45 JPEG’s. I’m having a colleague of mine put them all into one PDF so it is much easier to download. That should be beneficial for those looking for these documents.
If I may make a suggestion, it is much easier for them to be in PDF form so that those who want access to the documents can get them in one foul [fell] swoop. And even better, they don’t have to be in ZIP file format.
Check out my court documents page on my website to see how we did it.”
I then mentioned to her that page 5 was missing in the “DNA Search Warrant – Return Warrant and Report #1” document. She then stated that she put up all of the documents Janet Dyer sent her and if there is a page missing, it’s because that’s the way Janet wanted it.
I call bullshit. I have more, and they aren’t missing pages.
Continuing on, she then started bickering with me about the one-click ZIP file I added at the top of the page for convenience. We had 50+ documents on the archive regarding multiple political prisoners, and to make it easy for our readers, we gave them the ability to download them all in one fell swoop.
She went on to “inform” me about how dangerous ZIP files were and that I was putting everyone at risk for having that up. I told her that all of the documents can be downloaded individually, but we put up the ZIP file to make it easier for the readers. She then began telling me what to do with my own fucking website. She “recommended” that I remove the ZIP file, or at least remove it from the preview on the Facebook page.
I definitely didn’t remove the ZIP file, but to end this ridiculous fucking conversation about file formats, while a man is rotting away in prison, I removed the preview.
This was over four months ago and you can already see where this frustration comes from.
Before we move forward, I’d like to reference the interview we did with Kyle Rearden on activist legal defense fund scams. For our weekly listeners, you know exactly who this devil-woman is. In Kyle’s article, he discusses Genovese briefly:
”Debra Swan established the Dollars4Dyer legal defense fund in September of 2011. After Miss Swan had collected only $50 in donations, Rick Light committed libel when he asserted that she stole $10,000 from the fund, as well as claiming that Jan Dyer (Charles’ mother) never had access to the funds raised, or was even aware of it (this is also the very same Rick Light who has been consorting with employees or agents of the government, especially the FBI with regard to the Charles Dyer affair). Concurrently, a totally separate legal defense fund was established on ChipIn by Patriot Unity Coalition member organization Patriot Legal Defense (that has since become defunct), which was run by Nancy Genovese (aka, Mystcstar), who was the very same individual who single-handedly bankrolled New Colony Media during my short-lived stint with them. No accounting of any donated funds was ever made publicly available by Genovese’s Patriot Legal Defense organization.”[Emphasis added]
As you can clearly see, I had previous knowledge of this woman, and I knew exactly what I was getting into. I surely wasn’t surprised with the use of her signature tactic, misdirection.
In the coming weeks, I had a few more conversations with Karyn. She pointed me in the direction of Janet Dyer to acquire the documents I desired. I emailed Janet and, thankfully, received quite a few. Within this email, I received the transcripts for the first two trials, as well as others available on the archive. I do appreciate the documents I received from Janet, although, the most important ones were missing.
I then responded and requested the transcripts from the 3rd trial.
The screenshot below is her response:
Ah, the “Operation Floodlight” argument. We will debunk the supposed BAR attorney’s statement in a moment. The most important part to take away from this is that Jan paid $700 for the conviction and the 2nd trial transcripts. She has those transcripts.
Let’s examine “Operation Floodlight” for a moment. This is from the official version released on April 4, 2014:
“There are several hearings and trials that involve this case. They are referenced as follows: Preliminary Hearing (PH); Daubert Hearing (DH); 1st trial (T1); 2nd trial (T2); 3rd trial (T3); Post-Conviction Relief Brief. Only a brief summary of the transcripts and evidence is provided as well as the trial and page numbers in which the summarized information can be found. Copies of the original transcripts by law cannot be provided nor distributed due to the nature of the case and for the protection of the minor child.”[Emphasis added]
Wait a minute… “Operation Floodlight” states that, “Copies of the original transcripts by law cannot be provided nor distributed…” It doesn’t say that the transcripts from the 3rd trial can’t be released. It implies that none of them can be released.
But again, wait a minute. The transcripts of the first two trials are available on the LUA Charles Dyer archive and Janet Dyer has not been pursued by the authorities because of their release. They have been available for about three months.
Let’s take a look at another of Janet’s statements in one of our conversations:
She openly states that her computer is being tracked and watched. Whether or not that is true doesn’t really matter. The point is that she believes it is, and she still released the transcripts of the first two trials, which contradicts “Operation Floodlight” in its entirety.
I then inquired about the legal citation from both Karyn and Janet, that supposedly prevented them from releasing the documents. They had no clue. Karyn directed me to Janet, who in turn referenced the lawyer and directed me to the transcriptionist. I’ve had previous encounters with government agents during my political field trips, and most of them were much easier than dealing with being given the runaround. With “supporters” like these, who needs bureaucrats?
Kyle and I then did some research. It wasn’t easy, but it took just one evening. We dug through the Oklahoma Statutes and Oklahoma Administrative Code, but it was from a random Google search when we found the Charles Dyer Holy Grail; it debunked everything we have been told by Charles Dyer’s alleged supporters.
The document is titled, “Personal Identifier Information on Court Documents – Rules for the District Court of Oklahoma, Rule #31”.
Section B states:
“The responsibility for following the guidelines set forth above rests solely with counsel, the parties, or any other filer. The Clerk of the Court will not review documents for compliance with this rule, seal documents or redact documents. If a filer includes personal identifier information and other sensitive information in any document filed with the courts, electronically or otherwise, the document becomes a public record as filed.” [Emphasis added]
Immediately, I sent that to Karyn and Janet, thinking that this would be the key to acquiring those court documents. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Janet then, again, directed me to the transcriptionist, whom I emailed, but didn’t hear back from. She also mentioned that she couldn’t release the documents or she could be criminally liable. It’s worth a mention, that contacting the transcriptionist was just a way to cover all my bases, as I wasn’t going to pay her a penny for the transcripts.
Karyn and I talked a couple more times, but it was certainly more sporadic than before. The only time worth mentioning, was when she asked that I put up a post, informing those in Oklahoma to sign their most recent petition. It was on the old website (and now inaccessible), but I did, still hoping that I could acquire those documents.
I gave up on the entire situation, thinking that I wouldn’t go back to it. That is, until Karyn posted a picture of Charles with a letter from (I think) his sister, detailing the events prior to and leading up to his arrest, on the LUA Radio Intellectual After-Party Facebook group. I scanned it, realized it was completely worthless since there is no documentation, and then responded to her.
This is the beginning of the end of my involvement with the Charles Dyer’s circle-wagon crew.
Luckily, I took screenshots of Karyn and I’s conversation, as this is the final nail in the coffin. Within, you will see inconsistent and fallacious statements and either complete lies or proof of the disorganization within the so-called Justice for J4P community. Either way, it is not a good situation. (Note: Click here to download these images in a ZIP file.)
Screenshots of Our Conversation with Commentary
1. Karyn directs me to Janet for the umpteenth time.
2. Karyn states that the documents can be released, but she doesn’t have the money to acquire them, which is contrary to Janet’s admittance in a previous screenshot.
3. Karyn begins to talk in circles. She falls back on what Janet was told by the lawyer, right after she admitted that they can be released.
4. I bring up Rule #31 again, and point out the endless inconsistencies in her rebuttals. I take it up a notch and tell her to, “Put up, or shut up,” which as you can imagine didn’t make her very happy.
5. Karyn then states that she doesn’t have the copies because she cannot afford them. I’m almost positive she could get a copy from Janet, if she doesn’t have one already. She makes the “Operation Floodlight” argument once again, which has already been debunked. She then states that she won’t reach out to me anymore and accused me of “berating her for some legal bullshit.” She continues on to state that they asked me for help in getting the documents out (which I did; Rule #31) and to raise the money to get them. The second part is not true. We never discussed raising money to get the transcripts, I knew from the start that Janet had them. To conclude, she also accuses me of not being able to “deliver jack shit other than childish insults…” Childish insults? I merely told her that if she really loves Charles, she would give me the documents. My inability to deliver? I delivered them Rule #31, an actual legal citation, proving that they can release those documents without the fear of prosecution.
After that conversation, I was tired of communicating with Karyn and Janet. Apparently Karyn was done with me too, as she blocked me on Facebook and also ostracized me from the “support” group. Unfortunately, I’m not alone in the anger and frustration. A number of people throughout the years have also given up and their interactions with these gatekeepers are not much better than mine. The only difference would be my success in putting together the most extensive archive of his court documents to date, but again, it remains almost useless and will not help in determining his innocence or guilt.
Although, there is a moral to the story and some lessons can be taken away from it. Initially, I incorrectly assumed that Dyer was another victim of a lack of judicial transparency, but, as I discovered, it turns out that the stonewalling is coming from those who are closest to him, namely his mother and current girlfriend. It is also important to note, that without knowing what happens in the courtroom, it’s impossible for anyone to act on it. As I previously mentioned, we have the transcripts for the first two trials, which ended in mistrials. The only chance that Dyer has is for the transcripts in the conviction trial to be released, and gotten into the hands of folks like Gary Hunt.
Endless appeals and petitions to arrest corrupt judges only represent the insanity that encompasses this entire freak show. Insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, and instead of releasing the conviction trial transcripts, they would rather walk around with a finger in their asses and a clipboard in their hand filled with useless petitions.
I don’t mean to sound like a pessimist, but Charles Dyer is screwed; and it’s not only by the State, or those who profited off of his imprisonment, but also by those closest to him. If he even makes it to the end of his sentence, he will be nearly 70 years old and his life will be effectively over. This isn’t the minor leagues, where you can get away with screwing around; this is real life. This is Charles’ entire life. I’d recommend Janet and Karyn put on their big girl pants, if they truly care about what happens to Charles, but I envision the cycle of insanity repeating, with no hope for Charles Dyer regaining his freedom or his reputation.
