Ira Einhorn's Declaration: Evidence of being framed for murder
17Apr2000 [Side Note: For those who think that Einhorn's defense claim is ridiculous,
that he was framed for the murder of Holly Maddux to discredit him and the
information he was propagating -- including information about covert development of psychotronic and
advanced electromagnetic weapons of mass destruction and the potential
connection of the science behind them to covert "reverse engineering" of UFO
technologies by the US and other governments, you might want to visit the
website of the organization with which is associated Col. Thomas Bearden
whose understandings on these matters were apparently influential on
Einhorn's work in these areas in the 1970's, and look at the evidence
yourself regarding this overall thesis http://www.cseti.org]
The following document offers evidence that Ira Einhorn knew two months before the disappearance of Holly Maddux that he was in danger of being "set up" for something to discredit his work. It also offers evidence of conspiracy after the fact to deprive him of his constitutional rights.

Received email from Ira Einhorn, Tuesday, December 14, 1999 2:53 PM:
IRA EINHORN, CHAMPAGNE-MOUTON, NOV 29, 1998:
"Les lois de la République française peuvent et doivent, en bien des
être différentes de celles qui régissent les États-Unis, mais les
sur lesquels les constitutions américain reposent, ces principes d'ordre, de
pondération des pouvoirs, de liberté‚ vraie, de respect sincère et profond
droit sont indispensables a toutes les Républiques, ils doivent être communs
a toutes, et l'on peut dire a l'avance que la ou ils ne se rencontreront
la République aura bientôt cesse‚ d'exister."
--- Alexis de Tocqueville: de la Democratie en Amerique
ENGLISH TRANSLATION of quote above
The laws of the French Republic are both able to be and ought to be
from those that rule the United States, and they certainly are, but the
principles on which the American constitution reposes, those principles of
order, of separation of powers, of liberty, truth, and sincere and deep
for the law are indispensable for all Republics. They ought to be common to
all, and wherein they are not the Republic will soon cease to exist.

Immediately below I quote an excerpt from a letter written to my lawyer Norris E. Gelman dated August 2, 1997, by an internationally known friend and scholar, Professor Stafford Beer*. This
information was presented to the man who illegally used my notebooks to
write a totally negative book about me, but he choose to ignore it; how much
other information of this type did he choose to ignore and why?
This conversation quoted verbatim from Stafford's letter took place in
the summer of 1977 about two months before the murdered woman, Holly Maddux
"One day I looked up from my desk and saw that someone was approaching
down the path. This was most unusual, because hardly anyone knew yet of my
whereabouts, which I was keeping virtually secret, and the place is eight
miles from the nearest village. I could hardly believe my eyes: it was Ira.
But yes - he would have been one of the very few who would know my new
address, because I wanted to keep up the flow of packages from Bell.
"Ira and I became locked in a fascinating discussion of very sensitive
matters. They concerned monumentally important scientific discoveries, and
their possible impact on human life and society. I have not to this day
disclosed what Ira told me, and I do not know whether what he told me can be
substantiated. I am sure that Ira believed what he said, and I could
difficulty accept that it might be the case (that is, 'no alien life
What followed is indelibly fixed in my mind, and I shall get as near as I
to the ipsissima verba:
"Ira: 'I am making a special visit to you, and to a few other friends
have the knowledge to understand what I have found out, because my situation
"Stafford: 'I can believe it. Are you worried about your own government
or 'the competition?'
"Ira: 'Your call.'
"Stafford: 'Well, are you saying that you think you might be bumped
"Ira : 'The trouble is, that wouldn't do. It would provoke a whole lot
investigation, and the truth might get out. No, I think that I have to be
some way discredited.'
"Stafford: 'Aren't you in some way discredited already? Plenty of
think you are a nut case. And plenty think you are immoral - a bad
That lot got Socrates after all.'
"Ira: 'And the ideas survived. Just my point. No, it has to be a lot
stronger to count.'
"Stafford: 'Any Ideas?'
"Ira: 'None. I don't know what I need to protect myself against.'
"I can swear to this testimony. That's exactly what happened. It made me
apprehensive for my friend." ---[end of Stafford Beer quotes]
His apprehension became reality on the morning of March 28, 1979 when a
slew of Philadelphia police armed with a search warrant entered my small
apartment. When they left, they carried away evidence, a partially decayed
body, that effectively ended my life, as a social activist. They also
away, for no apparent reason, all of my papers, including 63 volumes of
personal journals and all the information that I had been collecting and
distributing for years on my international information network.
I have never seen any of this material again. I probably never will. The
private diaries were later turned over, as mentioned above, to a journalist
who quoted from them extensively and often out of context in a book that
painted me in totally black terms as a murderer. This use of my private work
is of course illegal, but my situation does not allow me to do anything
about it. It is part of the pattern that has characterised all official
action in my case. Action that continues to this day.
I am innocent of the murder with which I am charged and have proclaimed
my innocence since day one; an action that seems to have been deeply
disturbing to a large numbers of my friends who pressed me to make a deal
put the trauma behind us all.
The Philadelphia media barrage began on the day of my arrest, driving
3 Mile Island nuclear accident (the largest in American history) out of the
head lines. It continues to this day and has spread to nationwide
publications and network TV. My wife Annika was chased about our little
local village for 13 days by NBC whose prime team invaded our property, rang
our bell for almost an hour and shouted hate filled questions at my wife.
Locals have been amazed at such behavior and speak of a witch hunt and refer
to the times of the late Senator Joseph McCarthy.
After almost two years of pre-trial manoeuvring, which included much
judicial misconduct: Foreshortening of Xeroxed pages so that the damaging
pages of a now unnumbered report could be removed from the information due
us; information that included a public sighting of my former girl friend by
three bank employees 6 months after I am supposed to have killed her; and
most significantly, a failure to accept two lab reports, issued by the FBI
and a nationally known laboratory, National Medical Services, which did all
the work on the O.J. Simpson case; reports made at the instigation of the
prosecution, which indicated that there was no blood or human protein in the
supposed leakage from the body and that material found outside the trunk did
not correspond to material found inside the trunk. This was a stiff blow to
the prosecution's contention about the murder; the response: The most
prestigious local magazine published an article with blood on every page.
Such behavior was repeated no matter wherein I turned, and fearing the
death penalty, I left Philadelphia for a life underground.
I am a social activist by nature and after five years in Eire [Ireland] I managed
to reconstruct my life and re-begin government and public work, but as a
result of discovery I was forced to leave.
During the next ten years, after much personal struggle and with the
of my wife Annika, I gave up the public part of my life and turned all my
energy to study and writing. During that time I have written 4 novels and
another book. At the time of my capture my 5th novel was in embryo.
"It has always been my view that the law is fair and impartial, favoring
neither the prosecutor nor the defendant. But, today, the majority fosters
injustice by holding that an accused who is absent without cause on his date
of trial may be tried in absentia."
------- Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Steven A. Zappala
During that period, in an unprecedented action, I was tried for murder
ABSENTIA. My lawyer was forced, under judicial order, to participate in a
trial that was a farce, for he had no money to conduct it and could call few
witnesses in my defence. My life work was summed up by calling me "a bum who
Xeroxed things". At the conclusion of the trial I was gleefully sentenced
life in prison without chance of parole.
This decision became final in January of 1997, for no court would listen
to the appeals filed by my lawyer.
On June 13, 1997 when I was arrested, I fully expected to be extradited,
for I knew nothing of the European Code of Human Rights which is now an
integral part of French law. After almost 6 months in prison I was freed by
courageous judge who gave the Philadelphia authorities every chance to offer
me a second trial, but under Pennsylvania and United States law that is not
The decision lead to an unseemly and unprofessional barrage of insults
the Philadelphia authorities, creating an environment in which the local
papers could openly threaten me and the French judge with bodily harm and
talk about kidnapping me.
But there was more to come. The Pennsylvania legislature passed the
"EINHORN LAW" directed specifically at me. An unconstitutional law in many
ways (laws directed at one person are not allowed in the American legal
system), but in particular, a violation of a basic American constitutional
principle known as the separation of powers which does not allow the
legislature to interfere in final court decisions and is one of the most
jealously guarded of American constitutional principles, but as my original
lawyer Norris Gelman has written to me:
"I am certain the DA knows all this (REFERENCE TO THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL
NATURE OF THE LAW) and does not care. Our law is that anything goes in
getting one back into the country who has fled and cannot be extradited.
Kidnapping is fine and has been approved by the Supreme Court. Lying would
fine too and this statute is just another such instance."
Below you will find excerpts from the "discussion" which surrounded
passage of the "Einhorn Law."
I am quoting from the LEGISLATIVE JOURNAL of the PENNSYLVANIA HOUSE OF
1. Mr. O'Brien: "That is very specific to this case, and as I have
the legislation presents a problem in the future, we can remedy it by
action of this General Assembly."
2. Mr. O'Brien: "...the defendant Ira Einhorn, would be tried under
existing statutes today - the gentleman is correct - and that would be
entirely within the discretion of the prosecutor, and the ultimate sentence
would be a subject of the trial court, and if the death penalty were
that would be by the jury."
I am also providing an excerpt from the case that demonstrates the
unconstitutional nature of the law, in a very clear and unequivocal manner.
July 1850: Pennsylvania Supreme Court, De Chastellux vs Fairchild:
"The power to order a new trial is JUDICIAL. The legislature does not
possess judicial power, and they have not the right to direct that a new
trial be granted."
The situation is further exacerbated by a $50,000,000 civil suit. A suit
that requires my presence in court: An impossibility in my case. The fact
that the case was opened years too late, and on the basis of my being
extradited, are legal niceties that don't exist for me, for I have no way to
defend myself at a distance.
A red thread in my life has been social activism. After my arrest, I
tried to continue this work in Eire, but soon realised that it was too
dangerous to continue. After much struggle, I turned my energy to writing
novels, the last being a philosophical novel about the holocaust and
It is now becoming increasingly evident that I may be prevented from
publishing my book by the legal judgments lodged against me.
Let me close with a quote from the Philadelphia District Attorney Lynn
Abrahams. It is a quote with reference to Les Misérables and will have
particular resonance to the French reader. It aptly sums up the way I have
"Like Inspector Javert I will pursue Ira Einhorn relentlessly until the
ends of the earth."
