Kent Hovind Will Face A New Trial

Independent Baptist Minister and Young Earth Creationist, Kent Hovind, nearing the end of a long prison sentence for tax related crimes, was tried on new charges earlier this month. He and his co-defendant Paul John Hansen were charged with contempt of court, fraud and conspiracy because of filings that they made affecting property seized by the government. The seizures related to Hovind’s earlier conviction. The jury found Hovind and Hansen guilty of contempt, but was unable to reach a verdict on the more serious fraud and conspiracy charges. Today federal prosecutor Tiffany Eggers has filed notice that the Government intends to proceed to retrial on the charges that the previous jury did not reach a verdict on.

Kent Hovind had warned his supporters earlier this week that a retrial was likely.

Hovind’s supporters have waged a vigorous social media campaign documented at their flagship website #FreeKent. On Monday, Kent had a long sought after interview with Alex Jones of InfoWars

The depth of Hovind’s support is somewhat questionable. Despite many appeals they were not able to put a lot of “boots on the ground” in Pensacola during the last trial and when it comes to the thriving church community in Pensacola, Kent Hovind appears to be a prophet with no honor in his own country. A full pardon petition on We the People has gathered 683 signatures in the week that it has been up.

FREE DR. KENT HOVIND

Not a night goes by when I do not think about it as I craw in my warm bed beside my sweet wife of 35 years.

“Will this be the night that the black limos pull in my driveway? Is this the night that the SWAT Team goons bust down my door and haul me off to the slammer?”

I am being dead serious. I really do think about it every night because that is what they did to Dr. Kent Hovind.

Permit me to say right up front that I have no intention of committing suicide. I am madly in love with my wife, enjoy the time I spend with family and friends, and look forward to watching my grandchildren grow up around my feet.

To the best of my ability I obey the laws of the nation, no matter how tyrannical I believe some of them to be, while I do my best to speak the Truth in such a way as my Savior would be honored by my life.

But my outspoken style rubs many the wrong way, especially those who hold positions in the Government. Every time I type a word on my keyboard I wonder just who is going to be offended by what I say and across who’s desk will my commentary be passed.

George Washington said, “Government is not reason, nor eloquence. It is force. And like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearsome master.” The IRS has ruined Dr. Kent Hovind’s life.

It is a sad time in America when we are in fear of our government. You need look no further than what Lois Lerner did with the hammer of the IRS. We are all just one audit away from destruction.

Does anyone really understand the tax code? Do you ever think twice when filing your tax returns as to whether or not your deductions and write-offs are in full compliance with the IRS code? How do you defend yourself from such a maize of tax-law and an army of government bureaucrats?

When government reaches the point where they profit off of law-breaking we have reached a dangerous place. Government should be about seeking “justice” not enforcing laws. Today, law-breaking is big business for the government.

Once the government finds out that they can increase their largess by “fining” citizens for code violations we can only expect more code violations will be levied.

Prison is a place for violent, hardened criminals. It is not a place for people who simply violate codes statutes, and ordinances. Sentencing to prison a non-violent individual simply for breaking a “law” is inhuman. It is, in fact, a life sentence in that it destroys the perpetrator, the family, and the financial future of the family. The punishment does not fit the crime. Restitution…paying back the victim plus damages…is the solution spelled out in the Bible.

Kent Hovind is a perfect example of the tyranny of the legal system. Known lovingly as Dr. Dino because of his affinity for dinosaurs, he is one of the nations foremost apologist for Creation Science. The internet is full of free videos of him presenting seminars where he destroys the phony science of evolution….

But this week, Dr. Dino has just completed his 99th month in Federal Prison for what the government claims was violation of the IRS tax code….

In many ways Kent Hovind is a political prisoner. It was what you would expect in a communist country like North Korea.

While in jail Dr. Hovind has led thousands to saving faith in Jesus Christ. He conducts 4 Bible studies a day for the inmates. He has written 37 books. He has been married for 40 years. He has grandchildren that he has never held.

Meanwhile Al Sharpton is invited to the White House, and hosts his own television show on MSNBC while owing over $4.5 million in taxes. Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner got off Scot-free by blaming Turbo Tax….

Creationist Hovind’s Persecution Continues

Dr. Kent Hovind has now spent nine years in various state jails and Federal Prisons all over America on trumped up charges called “structuring”, which Congress passed to catch those involved in organized crime, not a pastor and his wife who were simply structuring their ministry affairs to avoid taxes, which is not a crime. The following article is republished from Dr. Kent Hovind’s Blog exactly as it appeared as his son Eric posted it. However the citizens of our country have been so dumbed down that a prosecutor can convince a grand jury and a jury of anything. However in the end Bro. Hovind and his wife Jo, who also served for one year in a Federal prison were betrayed by one of their own Christian brothers and sisters. Rev. Hovind will go on trial again in federal court in Tallahassee, Florida on January 5th for obstructing the court and filing “frivolous” papers, etc. They are also trying to seek further charges of mail fraud which would add another twenty years, because you have to mail the briefs to the court you know….

The prosecution obtained approval from Judge Rodgers to press more criminal charges. These allegations purport that the appeals, motions, and lawsuits filed by Kent Hovind are “frivolous” and that they have “encumbered” the government. In spite of the fact that in the county facility, he has no access to his legal files, he will be represented by a public defender….

Hovind’s new address is:
Kent Hovind #06452-017
Santa Rosa County Jail
PO Box 7129
Milton, FL 32572
