Exclusive: Former Navy SEAL Tells of Forced 
Incarceration under Obama Regime in 2009
By Sharon Rondeau | The Post & Email
In an initial interview with The Post & Email, Mr. Harry Galvin Butler, III said that in late 2008 and early 2009, all he wanted to do was point out was that Obama was “a phony” and see Congress act on it in the interest of national security. Instead, he ended up spending virtually the entire year in federal prisons awaiting a “psychiatric evaluation.”
Butler is a proponent of the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment and perceived that Obama, by virtue of being “a phony,” was “playing with my Constitution.” He told us that Navy SEALS and other military members “hate phonies.” He has no previous psychiatric history or criminal record.
Last August, former Marine Brandon Raub was arrested by the Secret Service and FBI, taken into custody and placed in a psychiatric institution where he was told he would be forced to take medication which he did not want. He was freed approximately one week later after a federal judge reviewed his detention and found no probable cause by which to hold him. Raub’s plight was taken up by The Rutherford Institute, which is suing the government for an unspecified amount of money. In a May 22, 2013 press release, Rutherford stated:
The complaint, filed in federal court in Richmond, alleges that Raub’s seizure and detention were the result of a federal government program code-named “Operation Vigilant Eagle” that involves the systematic surveillance of military veterans who express views critical of the government. Institute attorneys allege that the attempt to label Raub as “mentally ill” and his involuntary commitment was a pretext designed to silence Raub’s speech critical of the government and that the defendants violated Raub’s rights under the First and Fourth Amendments.
Following Raub’s highly-publicized case, Rutherford revealed that hundreds of other military veterans had contacted them to relate similar stories of government intimidation and people “disappearing.” Rutherford Institute President John Whitehead stated that “Brandon Raub’s case exposed the seedy underbelly of a governmental system that is targeting military veterans for expressing their discontent over America’s rapid transition to a police state.”
Two days before announcing the civil rights lawsuit, Whitehead expounded on Operation Vigilant Eagle, which was launched by the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice and the FBI to observe “veterans” for alleged signs of “extremism” and “oppositional defiance disorder (ODD).” Whitehead also wrote:
That the government is using the charge of mental illness as the means by which to immobilize (and disarm) these veterans is diabolically brilliant. With one stroke of a magistrate’s pen, these service men are being declared mentally ill, locked away against their will, and stripped of their constitutional rights. Make no mistake, these returning veterans are being positioned as enemy number one.
Navy veteran Darren Wesley Huff is presently incarcerated in a federal prison in Texarkana, TX resulting from a false FBI affidavit and prosecution witnesses who perjured themselves on the witness stand after Obama operatives reported “threats” to the Monroe County, TN courthouse which were never uttered.
The Post & Email has reported in depth on the targeting of veterans under the Obama regime, including the “Sovereign Citizen” program described by the FBI as including those who make “References to the Bible, The Constitution of the United States, U.S. Supreme Court decisions, or treaties with foreign governments.” Both Huff and another Navy veteran, Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, have been characterized as “Sovereign Citizens” in a law enforcement training program produced in Tennessee but used in various forms across the country.
Butler served as a Navy SEAL from 1969 to 1973 and was in the Reserves from 1973 to 1975. Following his release from the Navy, he attended Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL, where he went through the “Professional Pilot” program and obtained the necessary FAA Flight Ratings. From there, he went to work for Gulfstream Aerospace flying the world’s elite to their places of business and play. He became a captain and worked for the airline for 20 years until his retirement for medical reasons in 2002.
Of his flying training, Butler told us, “Before I made Aircraft Commander I personally made sure I had 5,000 hours flying time. Then when it came time for my Pilot in Command check ride I told the Check Airman that I wanted ‘No Slack’. He put me through the ringer and the ride took two days. I did this for one reason I knew that one day I’d be fighting an Emergency and peoples lives would be in my hands. I wanted to prove to myself that there was no emergency I could not handle in the cockpit. I took all those long years of hard work, study + spending every penny I + the VA could come up with.”
Butler loved his career. He told The Post & Email, “I retired from Gulfstream in 2002 which I hated. I was 52, at the height of my career + a Senior Demonstration Pilot in Flight Operations at General Dynamics/Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.” However, because of medical complications and increasingly-long flights, Butler said he chose retirement because “I would not have been able to make it other wise.” He added, “So reluctantly, kicking + screaming I retired from a job I loved. I tell everyone I never worked a day in my life at Gulfstream, however I did have one long love affair.”
Following several life-changing operations, Butler said he “has a handicap” but “is not handicapped,” although he has trouble walking.
Before Barack Hussein Obama was elected in 2008, Butler became alarmed because he believed, and still believes, that Obama is not a U.S. citizen. Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president be a “natural born Citizen,” although Butler is certain that Obama meets neither the definition of “U.S. citizen” nor “natural born Citizen.”
Butler said he called his representatives in Congress to no avail to “warn” them that a foreign national was about to be sworn in to the office of President and Commander-in-Chief.
In a recent email to this writer, Butler wrote that Obama is guilty of being “a Phony, Ineligible to be Eligible, Unfit for Command” and has committed “Abuse of Office as POTUS.”
Butler said that after he began sending emails and making phone calls to members of Congress, agents from the Secret Service began visiting members of his family, as his address was unconventional and not easily found. He has been told by his family members that they were “inundated by lies” from Secret Service agents stating that he was not in his right mind. “They use the power that they wield by being a government employee, which is ludicrous; it’s wrong; it’s illegal…if there’s any way we can stop that, it will be a huge plus for this country,” Butler said. “They all do the same thing.”
Butler is not sure when the Secret Service began contacting his family members. However, he said that they were surveilling a friend of his in their black SUVs, describing it as “dirty, dirty pool.”
In our previous interview, Butler told The Post & Email that his family members brought him to a psychiatrist at the urging of the Secret Service, then a hospital, both on the same day. He reported being told that he would be given medication, which he refused. Butler was then surrounded by a dozen men whom he attempted to fight off despite his physical challenges but was finally subdued by an injection of medication which was forced on him. “When I woke up, my arms and legs were in chains,” Butler told us.
Butler was taken to the psychiatric wing of the hospital, where he remained for two weeks. He was then moved to what he called “a private prison” in Ocilla, GA, in Irwin County, where he spent about a month. Butler was told that he was there for a “psychological evaluation” before a judge could “make a ruling” on his case. He had neither seen nor been told of any criminal charges having been filed against him.
The criminal complaint, which Butler said he paid for and received only a month ago, states that he made threats against Obama, a claim that Butler refutes. Butler told The Post & Email that he “never threatened bodily harm” to Obama. “SEALS don’t do that,” he said.
Butler explained that before Obama’s first inauguration, he was “trying to get (Sens.) Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson to wake up.” “This guy’s a phony, this guy’s a phony…I was writing them and calling them…So when they say they weren’t aware, that’s BS. You can see all these lies and distortions in the complaint. The thing is, if you do this to the President of the United States, it only takes one Secret Service agent to have you incarcerated. Nothing happened until Obama was inaugurated. When he got inaugurated, the very first thing he did was seal everything in the world related to him, even before he came after me…The order for me to be arrested came directly from the White House; you can bet your bottom dollar on it,” Butler said.
“All of this is illegal. These guys get away with it for one reason: they have tons of money. All of this corruption is done by threats and money and pressures from the government. That’s where it all comes from; that’s the thing that fuels all of this corruption,” Butler told us. “The amount of money to facilitate this cover-up is a figure beyond anyone’s imagination, and it’s not a problem. The rich and famous don’t think about money because they have so much, they don’t worry about it.”
Butler described the facilities where he was kept as “out in the middle of nowhere, like FEMA camps. They’re on caretaker status, with barbed wire, huge; there would be a handful of people there, and they all look brand-new. It’s a prison. What happens is the federal marshals are responsible for moving the inmates around. They put you on a bus that’s got blacked-out windows so you don’t know exactly where you are. They’ll pull in to a facility out in the middle of nowhere and you go into a great big huge gate and then they’ll pull out some paperwork. There are two or three of those facilities between Miami and North Carolina.”
Butler said that if an inmate asked where he was being taken, the marshals would say the name of the town or city, but that was all.
The Post & Email asked if the marshals escorted him to the door of the facility, to which he responded, “They take you to the front gate, and that’s as far as they go. You’re in chains. Any time you leave a facility, you’re in chains. There are two sets of cuffs; the ankle cuffs are wider than the wrist cuffs, and then you have a chain that goes around the wrist cuffs around your waist in an overhand knot and it goes down to your legs.”
The Post & Email asked Butler how he felt after having served his country as a Navy SEAL and being placed in chains, to which he said, “You feel terrible.”
He reported that he sometimes spent 14-16 hours a day on a bus, which caused him great discomfort as a result of his medical condition. “They give you a bag with a sandwich and an apple in it, but try to eat a sandwich with your hands chained to your waist,” he said. When we asked, “How do you do it?” he said, “You can’t. Some of the guys will nudge it a little, but you can’t get anything out of it.”
We asked if the marshals helped at all in that situation, to which Butler said, “****, no.”
Following Ocilla, Butler was taken to a facility in Miami, FL. -
