JUDGE AMY ARMSTRONG REEDY WORKS WITH OTHER COURT FUNCTIONARIES TO ASSEMBLE AND OPERATE A “JAUNDICED JURY” IN THE TRIAL OF MICHAEL DEWY ELLINGTON! (link)

“Seconds after Amy Reedy adjourned court for the day at 3:38 p.m.—without announcing the time court was to reconvene the next day (Wednesday)—a man in the forefront of the courtroom had the temerity to raise the question now swirling about the courtroom.

“Suppressing embarrassment in her mistake, Reedy exclaimed “Wait, wait” to the jury just at the exit doors. “Come on back!” Reedy cried out.

“The jurors froze in their tracks, half-turned to face the bench and stood very still.”

JAG HUNTER here with Sergeant of Marines Timothy Joseph Harrington:

The JURY LAUNDRY

In the days and posts ahead we’re going to  use the example of the Monroe County Tennessee  Jury Laundry to discuss and give examples regarding the scope and operation of modern day Jury Laundries found everywhere across America.

Jury-laundering

The Jury Laundry joins and converts innocent acts with innocent people transforming them into make-believe criminal acts and make-believe criminal actors.

Outlaw prosecutors and outlaw judges use the black-wash of innocents to populate their courtrooms as the objects of never-ending malicious, black-ball prosecutions.

The outlaw prosecutors and outlaw judges use the black-wash of The Jury Laundry to transform their malicious prosecutions into a form and forum that appears to be legitimate.

The Jury Laundry is a black-wash.

The Jury Laundry is no Jury at all.

The Jury Laundry used to be called The Grand Jury.

The Monroe County Tennessee Jury Laundry

Earlier today Helen Tansey posts in her “T-Room (click here)” published the first of what’s sure to become a series of reports regarding the events leading up to and executed earlier this month on Thursday, 3 June 2010.

Jury Laundrymen

Angela Davis is discovered as a second person illicitly judge-appointed into the 2010 Jury Laundry of Monroe County Tennessee.

Gary Pettway and Angela Davis serve together as two outlaw Jury Laundrymen.

Judge Amy Armstrong Reedy hand-picked Davis as the Foreman of the Monroe County Jury Laundry on 2 June 2010.

On 26 May 2010 a written order was issued to REEDY warning REEDY not to rig the jury (click here).

“Judicial interference or participation of any type or kind in the selection of the new Grand Jury or its foreman is fatal to the eventual vote of that Grand Jury constructed out of the need and necessity to examine and enforce the constitutionally lawful relationship between a judge and a jury.”

Reedy–a judge in the circuit criminal court–ignored the warning order. REEDY in her outlawry appointed Angela Davis as Foreman on 2 June 2010. Davis is one of the Jurors on the 2010 Jury Laundry (click here).

Tennessee State law commands that persons who’ve completed a term of jury service are prohibited from serving on any other Tennessee Jury for a period of 2-years (24-months).

Angela served as a Trial Juror for the first six-months of 2009 (click here – penultimate name on Panel #8).

Angela Davis’ jury service ended on 30 Jury 2009. Davis isn’t eligible to serve on another Tennessee Jury until 1 July 2011 (Click here: Tennessee Code Annotated 22-2-314).

And we know about Gary Pettway who serves illicitly on the 2010 Monroe County Jury Laundry with Davis.

Pettway served last year (like Davis) on a Tennessee Jury.

Pettway’s Jury term ended on 31 December 2009.

Pettway is  ineligible to serve on any Tennessee Jury until 1 January 2012.

Pettway’s first Jury term–as presently known–ended almost twenty-years ago on 31 December 1990.

But outlaw judges and prosecutors working with Pettway made sure Pettway never left the Jury Laundry.

Reedy promoted Davis from the Jury Laundry replacing Pettway as Foreman to protect Pettway and the Jury Laundry Process.

Davis and Pettway are co-workers…workmates.

Davis and Pettway are both criminals neither one of whom are allowed to sit on any 2010 Tennessee Jury.

And yet Davis and Pettway serve together on the 2010 Monroe County Jury Laundry not just as Jurors…but as Jury Foreman.

Davis’ assignment also went to protecting the Jury Laundry and its owners-operators such as Reedy from exposure to criminal consequence.

Human agency–the not so hidden hand of judicial jury tampering–stands as the only explanation finding Pettway and Davis standing together, serving together in the 2010 Monroe County Jury Laundry.

We’ll find other judge plants once we know their names.

A CHRISTIAN CITIZEN, EUGENE WITING’S PREAMBLE

“The Constitution of the United States is dead. 

“On June 24 2014 in Judge Kerry Blackwood’s court the Constitutional rights of Commander Walter Fitzpatrick were taken away.  His right to present to the Grand jury redress of grievances of massive government corruption was denied. 

“Please note that his rights under the Constitution are the same as yours and when Commander Fitzpatrick lost his rights so did you.   There will be a federal civil rights trial in the near future over this miscarriage of justice.

“Commander Fitzpatrick was found guilty with hearsay and lies on the part of the prosecutor Mr. Carter [Colonel, U.S. Army Retired] and [banker – attorney] Mr. Jeffry Cunningham.  There was  and never will be any proof of guilt.   Mr. Cunningham denied  Commander Fitzpatrick his right  ( and yours )  to present   to the Grand jury redress of grievances against the judicial side of  Government of McMinn County TN.  [Cunningham] also broke the law by not recusing himself when he knew what was in the presentment to the grand jury.

“The prosecutor Carter would not even honor Commander Fitzpatrick  by calling him Commander.   All you Vets beware you may be next if you have the courage of your convictions and keep your oath to our nations military  to stand for freedom. 

“Note there are more Americans in prison in the United States per capita than any country in the world.  Many of which do not deserve to be in prison put there by a rigged grand jury.  Some are guilty of “thinking “ about doing something.  Now the thought police are on the seen.

“Juries are so important that they can even nulify bad laws.  Did you know that?   The defense is banned to even bring that up in the court room.

“Shame on the judges, prosecutors and juries!”

First Amendment Dead in Tennessee pb

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Saturday, June 28, 2014 @ 4:37 PM In National |

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY?

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jun. 28, 2014) — The same McMinn County, TN grand jury which was prejudiced by its foreman in January issued a presentment in March charging CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) with extortion, harassment, stalking, and aggravated perjury.

On Tuesday, Fitzpatrick was convicted on the counts of extortion and aggravated perjury but acquitted of harassment.  Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood, who was ordered to leave the bench in an unrelated case because of questions about his “impartiality,” dismissed the charge of “stalking” prior to the end of the trial.

On numerous occasions since late 2012, Fitzpatrick had attempted to submit evidence of crimes committed to the McMinn County grand jury in an exercise of his First Amendment right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

In Tennessee’s Tenth Judicial District, which includes McMinn, Polk, Bradley and Monroe Counties, the grand juries alternate months of service so that the January group skips February and is convened again in March, then in May.

In January, then-grand jury foreman Jeffrey Cunningham had “informed” the grand jury of Fitzpatrick’s “history” after Fitzpatrick attempted to submit evidence of misconduct on the part of public officials to include Cunningham, the criminal court judges, prosecutors, and local law enforcement.  Fitzpatrick had asked Cunningham to recuse himself from the matter since he was named in the complaint, in accordance with state law, a point which Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Van Irion, raised during the trial.

One of the grand jurors said she voted to indict Fitzpatrick because she felt “intimidated” by him after what Cunningham had told the group in the grand jury room.

Cunningham refused to remove himself from presenting any of Fitzpatrick’s petitions to the grand jury while he served as foreman, reportedly resigning on March 4 of this year.

In February, Cunningham threatened Fitzpatrick with arrest if he should make another effort to bring a submission to the grand jury.

Blackwood was not impartial in Fitzpatrick’s case, as he had refused Fitzpatrick’s request without a hearing for a subsequent restraining order against Cunningham.

At issue was the hand-selecting of the grand jury foreman by the criminal court judges, a practice dating back decades in Tennessee but which is found nowhere in state code.  The Tennessee Rules of Criminal Procedure mandate that the grand jury foreman, while chosen by the judge, “must possess all the qualifications of a juror.”  A person chosen without the same vetting process as those selected in accordance with state law may or may not possess those “qualifications.”

The Fifth Amendment in the Bill of Rights is the only place in our founding documents which mentions the grand jury.  One legal source notes it as a “protection against abuse of government authority.”  When the Constitution was under deliberation, a Bill of Rights was insisted upon by the anti-Federalists, who feared that a central government created by the states would overreach its constraints and usurp power from the people.

Since Cunningham admitted that Fitzpatrick’s claims were accurate during testimony, it is unknown how the conviction on “aggravated perjury” materialized.  In Tennessee law, “extortion” signifies an attempt to “coerce” someone to do something.

There must be a unanimous finding of guilt for a conviction.  A legal analysis of the provisions of the Sixth Amendment, which includes the right to a trial by a jury of one’s peers, states:

By the time the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights were drafted and ratified, the institution of trial by jury was almost universally revered, so revered that its history had been traced back to Magna Carta. 42 The jury began in the form of a grand or presentment jury with the role of inquest and was started by Frankish conquerors to discover the King’s rights…

The guarantees of jury trial in the Federal and State Constitutions reflect a profound judgment about the way in which law should be enforced and justice administered. A right to jury trial is granted to criminal defendants in order to prevent oppression by the Government. Those who wrote our constitutions knew from history and experience that it was necessary to protect against unfounded criminal charges brought to eliminate enemies and against judges too responsive to the voice of higher authority. The framers of the constitutions strove to create an independent judiciary but insisted upon further protection against arbitrary action. Providing an accused with the right to be tried by a jury of his peers gave him an inestimable safeguard against the corrupt overzealous prosecutor and against the compliant, biased, or eccentric judge. . . . [T]he jury trial provisions . . . reflect a fundamental decision about the exercise of official power–a reluctance to entrust plenary powers over the life and liberty of the citizen to one judge or to a group of judges. Fear of unchecked power . . . found expression in the criminal law in this insistence upon community participation in the determination of guilt or innocence.” 48

With the systemic corruption within the Tennessee courts as reported by The Post & Email over more than four years, it is difficult to know whether or not the jury was “impartial” in Fitzpatrick’s case.

The prosecutor, A. Wayne Carter, said that Fitzpatrick lied in his attempted grand jury submissions, but Cunningham said that Fitzpatrick’s statements were accurate.

Carter retired from the U.S. Army as a “full-bird” colonel and has asked that Fitzpatrick be sentenced as a “career criminal” with enhanced sentencing for attempting to exercise his constitutional rights to petition the grand jury.  Carter excoriated Fitzpatrick for wearing his Navy uniform by asking, “How dare he wear his uniform here?  How dare he?”

Title 10 U.S.C., Section 772 (c) permits the wearing of a military uniform by retirees.  Fitzpatrick served in the Navy for 24 years and was honorably discharged.

In his submission, Fitzpatrick had attempted to inform the grand jury that its then-foreman, Jeffrey Cunningham, was acting outside the law by failing to inform them that he was a court employee hand-selected by Judge Amy Reedy rather than empaneled from a randomly-chosen jury pool as state law requires.  No one objected when Irion stated in a pre-trial hearing that Cunningham was an employee of the Tenth Judicial District rather than an empaneled juror; however, during the trial, both Carter and Cunningham characterized his role as “a juror.”

Last fall, Tennessee Attorney General Robert E. Cooper’s office issued a brief to an appellate court which stated unequivocally that the grand jury foreman “is not impaneled” as the other grand jurors are.

In Monroe County, grand jury foreman Gary Pettway was described in an indictment against Fitzpatrick as “a juror.”

Cunningham was “selected” when Reedy called him “at home” one evening and asked him to serve as her “next grand jury foreman” for McMinn County beginning in 2012.

As the alleged victim of the crimes, Cunningham testified on the witness stand that the statements in Fitzpatrick’s criminal complaints were accurate.  Carter insisted that they were not.  Cunningham retracted his position as Fitzpatrick’s accuser at the pre-trial hearing, and no police report or sworn statement was produced.

How, then, did the jury reach its conclusions?

Innocent men and women have spent years, and sometimes decades, in state prisons in Tennessee because of corrupt judges.

During Fitzpatrick’s trial, a rally calling upon a raise in the minimum wage was held outside the courthouse.  With last week’s jury verdict – that petitioning the Government for a redress of grievances is a felony – such future rallies will no longer be possible under the First Amendment.

The Obama regime targeted Tea Party, Second Amendment, pro-life, Christian, traditional-marriage groups and even a U.S. senator beginning in 2010 in an effort to quell their freedom of speech guaranteed under the First Amendment.  Obama operatives have been actively involved in silencing anyone investigating Obama’s background, life story, birthplace, or the veracity of his statements.  At the time of this writing, at least one of the operatives is facing criminal indictment for some of the same “crimes” of which Fitzpatrick was accused.

Beginning approximately three weeks ago, Fox News, Fox News Radio, and The Washington Times began to openly discuss the issue about Obama’s eligibility, birthplace, and life narrative, ending a six-year media blackout on the subject.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who launched an investigation at an undisclosed time after his Cold Case Posse declared that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form were fraudulent, has told The Times that he is “honing in” on the creators of the forgeries.

Now, almost daily, new revelations of corruption, intimidation, possible blackmail and illegal leaking of confidential information on the part of the regime are made by internet and broadcast media.

On March 17, 2009, Fitzpatrick filed a criminal complaint of treason against Obama for being a “foreign born domestic enemy.” After filing it on the federal level, Fitzpatrick attempted to take it to the Monroe County grand jury, where he resided at the time.  It was then that he discovered that Tennessee grand jury foremen serve for years, and sometimes decades, at the pleasure of criminal court judges.

Five years ago, Fitzpatrick was a lone voice naming Obama in the commission of treason.  Today he is not.

Adm. James A. Lyons (Ret.), formerly Commander, Pacific Fleet while CDR Fitzpatrick served in the Pacific Fleet, has described Obama’s actions as “the agenda an enemy would devise.”  On June 23, Lyons wrote in an op-ed in The Washington Times:

…What’s happening to America’s standing in the world is not due to incompetence, as some have claimed. This is planned. We are witnessing the Obama administration’s embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood creed, which is to destroy America from within. Congress must be responsible to take back America. Nothing less is acceptable.

Numerous others have joined the chorus accusing Obama of treason against the United States of America.

Radio show host Carl Gallups, who is privy to some of the investigative findings of Arpaio and the Cold Case Posse, said on his “Freedom Friday” show last night that Obama comes from a “deep Sunni [Muslim] background.”  During the 2008 campaign, Obama claimed he was a committed Christian, but his actions have belied his words as he continues to arm Islamic radicals throughout the Middle East.

Gallups also asserted that “we know” that blackmail was used by the regime as an attempt at intimidation, although he did not elucidate further.

In January 2010, Fitzpatrick wrote of the corruption in the Tennessee courts:

Judges and prosecutors trashed our grand juries in favor manufacturing a dark, secret machine few know about or know how to operate. The state designed and manufactured the machine to take direct action against people the state criminally accuses.

The machine and its operation are necessarily cloaked and hidden in order to keep the machine running smoothing without outside interference. Secrecy further gives cover to government criminals self-absorbed in protecting themselves and government criminal cohorts operating similar machines throughout Tennessee State and throughout America.

In The Post & Email’s first report on Tennessee judicial corruption entitled “The Face of Treason,” Fitzpatrick described the criminality of a long-serving grand jury foreman as “breathtaking and beyond people’s ability to believe.”

At the Bundy Ranch in April, BLM agents retreated after a large group of people arrived to defend the Bundys’ property and right to graze their cattle on the land in dispute.  Of the entrenched judicial corruption in Tennessee, Fitzpatrick has said, “It’s going to take large numbers of people standing up.”

“But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.” — John Adams

Fitzpatrick Meets with Police Detective on Local, State and Federal Government Corruption

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Tuesday, February 4, 2014 @ 11:17 PM In National |

“NOW THE GLOVES COME OFF”

by Sharon Rondeau

How much “progress” has Athens, TN made since the 1940s in rooting out public corruption?

(Feb. 4, 2014) — On Monday morning, February 3, 2014, CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) went to the Athens, TN Police Department to report crimes committed against him by McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy and McMinn County grand jury foreman Jeff Cunningham.

For at least the last three years, Fitzpatrick has been characterized in a law enforcement training program as a “Sovereign Citizen,” people who the FBI and state “fusion centers” describe as potentially dangerous, “anti-government” “extremists” who may be mentally ill or become involved in bank fraud and other schemes.

The FBI currently includes those who make “references to the Bible, The Constitution of the United States, U.S. Supreme Court decisions, or treaties with foreign governments” as possible “Sovereign Citizens.”

Located in McMinn County, Athens is the site of the “Battle of Athens” which took place in 1946 between a small group of World War II veterans and a corrupt sheriff and his deputies who routinely engaged in voter fraud and intimidation, bribery, and false ticketing for personal gain, among other vices.  Southeastern Tennessee is well-known for its systemic, top-to-bottom public corruption which has terrorized its citizens by means of rigged juries and false imprisonments; racketeering, money laundering, shake-downs, police brutality and intimidation; and even murder.

Local media tell half-truths and do not challenge longstanding government practices or specific individuals, including Joe Guy.

Fitzpatrick had previously exposed that grand juries in Tennessee’s Tenth Judicial District operate illegally because the foreman, and in some cases, jurors, serve for multiple terms at the pleasure of the presiding judge.  His discovery of grand jury corruption in adjacent Monroe County in late 20o9 was the subject of the PANDA radio show on Sunday, February 2, hosted by Chuck Smith and Lorri Anderson, on which grand jury experts Dr. Roger Roots and Kelly Mordecai appeared as guests and specifically discussed Fitzpatrick’s revelations.  While acknowledging widespread government control over modern grand juries, Roots commented that he had never observed the same level of judicial corruption as exists in the state of Tennessee.

On Sunday evening, Fitzpatrick had given Athens Police Chief Charles Ziegler advance notice by email that he would be arriving on Monday morning to file a complaint, to which Ziegler responded that he would make one of his detectives available when Fitzpatrick arrived.   Det. HeIth Willis met with Fitzpatrick for four hours, wherein Fitzpatrick showed Willis documentation of the Sovereign Citizen campaign naming him as a potential criminal and the current grand jury foreman, Jeff Cunningham, who is an attorney and active member of the Tennessee Bar Association.

Fitzpatrick has attempted to bring criminal evidence on the parts of Cunningham and Reedy to the McMinn County grand jury, but Cunningham, acting as gateguard, did not allow the grand jury to review Fitzpatrick’s documentation.

Willis is a former Warrant Officer in the U.S. Army who Fitzpatrick described as “a really good guy.”  Of the meeting, Fitzpatrick told The Post & Email:

We started at 10:30 and talked until 1:30 straight. He doesn’t know what to do.  He is as frustrated in what the next step looks like as I am.  He said, “We don’t have jurisdiction within the courthouse,” and I said, “I know that.”  He said that other agencies have jurisdictions that are senior to ours, and normally speaking, when cases like this come in, we have to turn them over to other agencies.

Fitzpatrick said he concentrated on a complaint naming Guy and Cunningham as criminals which he attempted to take to the McMinn County grand jury on January 21.  However, Cunningham himself, knowing that he had been named in at least one other of Fitzpatrick’s criminal complaints, obstructed the submission from reaching the grand jurors and demanded that McMinn County sheriff’s deputies escort Fitzpatrick out of the courthouse, despite his having committed no crime.

Guy is running for re-election in November.  Cunningham is serving his third consecutive year as grand jury foreman, appointed by Judge Amy Reedy, who Fitzpatrick observed hand-picking grand jury members on December 7, 2011.

Fitzpatrick’s complaint against Guy is based on Guy’s enlisting of his deputies in the “Sovereign Citizen” training program in which Fitzpatrick is pictured along with Darren Wesley Huff and George Raudenbush.  Huff is currently serving a four-year federal prison term for a crime that “never happened,” while Raudenbush was released last month on bond after his convictions were reversed by a Tennessee appeals court and have been remanded back to Monroe County for a new trial.

Fitzpatrick asked Willis for any assistance he might be able to provide in speaking with others “within his circle of influence” about the training program naming Fitzpatrick as a “sovereign.”  On Friday, Fitzpatrick had called the Internal Affairs Officer in the McMinn County Sheriff’s Department to request a meeting but received no response.  Last year, Fitzpatrick had visited the sheriff’s department on multiple occasions to file a complaint about the training program, but his objections were brushed aside.

Fitzpatrick was intimidated as a ringleader of “eight or nine militia groups” as described by FBI Special Agent Mark Van Balen, who has not yet been called to account for his false report which ultimately landed Huff in federal prison.

On Thursday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Luke A. McLaurin falsely stated to three judges at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that Fitzpatrick and Huff had exchanged “text messages” prior to and on the morning of April 20, 2010 in order to “plan” a “takeover” of the Monroe County courthouse. Dubbed “the Madisonville Hoax” by Fitzpatrick, between 100 and 200 law enforcement officers were deployed into Monroe County’s central town of Madisonville to diffuse reported threats from alleged “extremists” and “militia” groups, all of which proved to be false reports called in to the mayor’s office by members of  The Fogbow, a group of Obama sycophants who may now be under observation by law enforcers themselves.

Although no one was seen carrying a firearm that day, false reports made by law enforcers were repeated in the media without proof.  No arrests were made that day.  However, ten days later, Huff was arrested and charged with two federal firearms violations and convicted on one in October 2011.

At Huff’s trial, there was no mention of “text messages,” and Fitzpatrick was never charged with participating in a conspiracy to commit violence. While McLaurin admitted that Huff was not charged with “conspiracy,” he then fabricated statements to the appeals panel by stating that Huff and Fitzpatrick had worked together to “plan” a violent convergence upon the Madisonville courthouse on April 20, 2010.

“It’s all lies,” Fitzpatrick said.  “I had no contact whatsoever with Darren Huff by phone, email or text messaging.  I do not text,” he said.

Fitzpatrick further detailed his conversation with Willis:

I told him, “This, for me, is a last resort.  I don’t know who else to go to.  I told him about my interactions with the TBI, the sheriff’s department and FBI…the guy was amazed.  He knows that I have my ducks in a row and why I’m concerned about the Sovereign Citizen program. I told him how I tried to get my name off of it again and again.

We talked about Jim Miller’s murder.

We have the report about what the U.S. attorney did last Thursday.  I can’t make the complaint to the DOJ because they’re the culprit.  I can’t get into a grand jury setting because the U.S. attorney’s office is the one obstructing me.

I showed him the picture that’s hanging someplace in the Tennessee Highway Patrol offices in the state, and I said, “I’m tired of this; I want this to stop.”  He understood and said, “I’ll do what I can, but my jurisdiction has lines around it.  I’m limited.”  He understood why I was there yesterday and that it was a last resort.  He knows all the other steps I have taken.

Joe Guy is running for re-election. His photo was at the top of The JAG HUNTER on Monday morning with a caption underneath it that he is still using the Sovereign Citizen training program with his deputies.

Joe Guy can be held accountable.  People can go into the grand jury; they can do a letter-writing campaign, or Tim Smith, who is running against Guy, can take it up as a campaign issue.  He knows that if he wants to talk with me, he can.  If he gets in touch with me, we’ll move forward from there.  Joe Guy will have to deal with it; he’s answerable to it.

The training program continues to put me in harm’s way, and the detective sergeant agreed.

I’ve talked to a lot of people in law enforcement.  I told Det. Willis that I know what happens if I get stopped by anybody at this point, and I’m not interested in having that happen for an officer and certainly not for me.  Everybody I’ve talked to about this is in complete agreement that I’ve got to stop being described in this way.  He asked me about a civil suit, and I said, “I don’t have that kind of money.”

Fitzpatrick explained that the Sovereign Citizen training program is not given by the McMinn County Sheriff’s Department, but rather, by the Tennessee Department of Safety under the state’s Department of Homeland Security in various locations.  However, “What Joe Guy could do is to stop sending his deputies to the training program,” Fitzpatrick said.  “It’s not his training program, so he doesn’t have control over what’s in it, but he has to understand that he’s accountable for using it.”

Fitzpatrick said that he first made Guy aware of the training program two years ago, to which Guy had responded, “It is what it is.  Deal with it.”

The Post & Email had previously requested documentation on the program through an Open Records request to the Tennessee Department of Homeland Security and was quoted a fee of approximately $750.

Fitzpatrick said that he took with him three boxes of information to his meeting with Willis.  “I needed a hand truck to take them into the conference room.  I told him I had three more boxes at home,” Fitzpatrick said.  Of the remainder of the meeting, he continued:

We talked about The Fogbow.

He was very interested in the VAN BALEN affidavit and how Darren got arrested at all, and why he wasn’t arrested that day.  He was very interested about the workings of April 20, 2010.  I showed him the matrices I have for the 30 people who were there.  These statements that were made last week in open court are lies, and I’m trying to get this information into a grand jury setting, and I can’t.

He kept telling me all through the course of the meeting, “I’m a detective, and I deal with facts.”  And I gave him facts.  If nothing else, this is another foray into the world of law enforcement.

At the beginning, he had a patrolman in the room, and the patrolman left. So it was him and me for the last three-quarters of the meeting.  I gave the patrolman and Willis a copy of the Advocate & Democrat article which published four years ago today.  I said, “This is what we thought back in the day about Pettway and term limits, and now we’ve been told differently.”  I showed him the paragraph from the HIXSON BRIEF and put it next to the felony indictment which named Mr. Pettway as a juror.

[Editor’s Note:  In September, Tennessee Deputy Attorney General Kyle Hixson wrote in an appellate court brief in a pending case of Fitzpatrick’s that the grand jury foreman has never been considered “a juror,” as he is selected by a judge using a different process than that which is used for grand jurors.  However, in June 2010, both Huff and Fitzpatrick were indicted by the Monroe County grand jury for “intimidating a juror” in a reference to the grand jury foreman.  The contradiction between the attorney general’s office and the legislative branch, which wrote the laws on grand juries, has not been reconciled, although members of the legislature have been informed of it.]

The detective told me that he has been called into the room when the grand jury deliberates.  He said that once he presents his case, he is asked to leave, and whatever happens next is a secret; we don’t know.  I can’t remember if he said that the prosecutor stays in the room or leaves, but it makes no difference.  Whether the prosecutor stays or leaves, Jeff Cunningham is the guy who’s left behind, and he is the leader of the band.  He has complete control, and the grand jury members don’t know any different.

I told Willis that this isn’t about me; “you have an innocent man in a federal prison right now as a Navy veteran being targeted as a sovereign citizen.  He’s not.”  I read the relevant part of Van Balen’s affidavit where it said that Darren was in a specific place with guns, and I said, “This is a lie.”  He said, “Well, this is interesting because I deal with facts,” and he understands it’s wrong.  I was able to back up everything that he had a question about.

It’s washing over a detective now just exactly how a big a deal this is.  He was absorbed with what I told him, as were the panelists on Sunday’s radio show.

I impressed upon the detective that the Madisonville Hoax is the first government-manufactured domestic terrorism event in the country.  And I said, going back to the facts:  “Fact:  Darren wasn’t there.  Fact:  Darren didn’t have a gun.”  I showed him the list of people who were there:  “None of these people had a gun.”  I went through fact after fact, and he gets it.

I think the word is spreading in the community, and Joe Guy isn’t going to be happy when he comes to the internet and sees his smiling face there, being named as a sheriff who’s attacking a Navy commander as he is.  Joe Guy can’tdeny it.  And the deputies aren’t happy with the fact that they’re going to this training…which is how the CD was released.  It came from the McMinn County Sheriff’s Department.

I’ve given Joe Guy plenty of room; I’ve approached him on a number of occasions.

It’s washing over a detective now just exactly how a big a deal this is.  He was absorbed with what I told him, as were the panelists on Sunday’s radio show.

I impressed upon the detective that the Madisonville Hoax is the first government-manufactured domestic terrorism event in the country.  And I said, going back to the facts:  “Fact:  Darren wasn’t there.  Fact:  Darren didn’t have a gun.”  I showed him the list of people who were there:  “None of these people had a gun.”  I went through fact after fact, and he gets it.

I think the word is spreading in the community, and Joe Guy isn’t going to be happy when he comes to the internet and sees his smiling face there, being named as a sheriff who’s attacking a Navy commander as he is.  Joe Guy can’t Now the gloves come off.  I’m spreading the word in the community, and he’s not going to like what’s being said.  But he cannot deny it.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Makes False Statements at Huff Appeals Hearing

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Saturday, February 1, 2014 @ 4:29 PM In National |

“CREATIVE” U.S. ATTORNEY CLAIMS “TEXT MESSAGES” BETWEEN HUFF AND FITZPATRICK WHICH DO NOT EXIST

by Sharon Rondeau

Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee Luke A. McLaurin made false statements to a three-judge panel at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday in the case of USA v. Huff

(Feb. 1, 2014) — On Thursday, January 30th, 2014, an appeals hearing was held at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, OH on behalf of Darren Wesley Huff, who has been incarcerated at a minimum-security federal prison in Texarkana, TX for the last year and a half on a federal firearms conviction.

Audio of the proceeding is available for immediate listening or download under Case # 12-5581  on the Sixth Circuit’s website.  Knoxville Attorney Gerald R. Gulley, Jr. argued for the defense, while the government was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Luke McLaurin, which was verified with the court via telephone.

Gulley is a partner at Gulley & Oldham and has experience in criminal law, traffic tickets, personal injury, workers’ compensation, and matters of probate.

McLaurin spent 14 months in Iraq “acting as a legal advisor for judges, police, attorneys, and law students as they worked to improve their criminal justice system” working for the U.S. Justice Department.  In 2008, McLaurin wrote a paper in which he decried the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to enforce a decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ).  “In reaching this conclusion, the Supreme Court held that, although ICJ judgments create international law obligations for the United States, they do not constitute binding domestic law enforceable in United States courts,” McLaurin wrote.

A 2003 graduate of Notre Dame University with a Master’s Degree from the same institution the following year, McLaurin is a student of classical literature and humanities, which he said enable him to exercise “creativity” in his practice of law.

In October 2011, the trial jury acquitted Huff on a second charge and was originally “hung” on the first, but Judge Thomas A. Varlan instructed them to “try again to reach a verdict.

On April 20, 2010, Huff had traveled to Madisonville, TN to attend a court hearing for CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.), who had been arrested on April 1 for attempting to conduct a citizen’s arrest on the longstanding grand jury foreman for violating the Tennessee statute limiting jurors to a one-year term.

In an indictment issued against both Huff and Fitzpatrick stemming from the citizen’s arrest, the foreman was identified as a “juror.” However, in a court brief filed in defense of the government’s conviction of Fitzpatrick in a case arising in December 2011, the state of Tennessee now claims that the foreman of any grand jury in Tennessee is not a juror, but rather, a court employee appointed by the judge by an unknown vetting process.

On April 20, 2010, Huff had intended to observe Fitzpatrick’s brief court appearance to show support for a fellow Navy veteran standing up against government corruption.  Eastern Tennessee is known for deep, systemic, and widespread corruption which former World War II GIs took into their own hands in August 1946 with “the Battle of Athens,” where they were successful in expelling a corrupt sheriff and his deputies who had assaulted a black man attempting to cast a vote in McMinn County as well as rig the elections.

Huff brought his legally-owned firearms with him that day, which he locked in his truck toolbox prior to reaching Madisonville during a traffic stop at which a Tennessee Highway Patrol officer said he ran a stop sign.  At least one of the judges questioned whether or not the traffic stop was legal and if Huff’s Fourth Amendment rights were violated, thereby raising the issue of “suppression.”

Gulley argued that Huff had not intended to use his firearms in “commerce,” as the statute under which he was convicted states.  Gulley stated that a local official had testified at Huff’s trial that Huff had carried a .45 in with him to the restaurant, which is refuted by eyewitnesses and a man who spent the entire day with Huff.

Fitzpatrick resides in McMinn County presently, although he was charged with “intimidating a juror,” “riot,” “interrupting a public meeting,” and other transgressions.

Fitzpatrick has exposed jury-rigging, tampering with court transcripts, and murder in Monroe County, TN, which, like McMinn County, is part of the Tenth Judicial District.  Fitzpatrick has made many attempts to testify to a federal grand jury, but the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, an Obama appointee, has blocked it, including in a letter written in June 2013 stating that any future correspondence from Fitzpatrick would be discarded without response.

In the audio of Thursday’s hearing, Gulley spoke first in defense of his client, who Gulley said traveled from his home in Georgia to Tennessee on the morning of April 20, 2010 in a matter involving Fitzpatrick, who Gulley described as “a friend or acquaintance” of Huff’s.  Gulley stated that on the evening of April 19, Huff had received a visit from an FBI agent who asked Huff what his intentions were in Madisonville the following day.  Huff has previously stated, and Gulley reaffirmed, that Huff had told the agent that if he thought Huff’s trip to attend the hearing “was a bad idea,” he would not go.  However, the agent did not attempt to convince Huff to stay at home.

On at least two occasions prior to April 20, members of The Fogbow, an Obama sycophant group, placed calls to then-Madisonville Mayor Alan Watson claiming that violent “militia” members planned to “take over the courthouse” on April 20, to which the government responded by dispatching members of the FBI, TBI, local police, sheriffs’ departments, a SWAT team and sniper team, and bomb-sniffing dogs.

William L. Bryan, known online as “PJ Foggy,” claimed responsibility for making the false reports, which members of The Fogbow have affirmed.  In September 2010, their group boasted a “White House attorney” and presently contains an attorney involved in defending the fraudulent long-form birth certificate image released by the White House on April 27, 2011 purported to belong to Barack Hussein Obama.  A law enforcement investigation plans on releasing “universe-shattering” information next month as a corollary to its investigation which concluded that the birth certificate image is a “computer-generated forgery” early in 2012.

Members of The Fogbow and their associates have watched the Huff and Fitzpatrick cases closely and disseminated propaganda about both.

Foggy and his wife are now reportedly working as Obamacare “navigators.”

On December 9, 2013, a source close to the birth certificate investigation released a video stating that “prosecutions are coming” in regard to the forgery and possibly other crimes.  It has been speculated that officials at the Hawaii Department of Health led by the late Loretta Fuddy are involved in creating, copying and releasing the fraudulent document to dupe the American public into believing that Barack Hussein Obama, who Fitzpatrick named as a traitor in March 2009, was born in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961.

On December 13, 2013, Fuddy died after the plane in which she was flying on official business made a water landing, with all other passengers and the pilot surviving.  Fuddy’s autopsy reportedly determined that she had died of cardiac arrhythmia, which her brother Lewis said she did not have.

Fitzpatrick has found through eyewitnesses of the events of April 20, 2010 that Huff was not located where the government said he was, as Huff and others were denied admittance to the Monroe County courthouse for Fitzpatrick’s hearing.

Beginning at 7:10 in the audio, one of the judges asked whether or not certain information given by Huff could be suppressed.  Gulley stated that Huff’s trial had included “testimony of a law enforcement officer in Madisonville that he saw Mr. Huff take a pistol…and go into the restaurant, where another law enforcement officer said that he was providing a motivational speech to sympathetic persons.”  When one of the judges said, “…they were going to take over the courthouse,” Gulley said that if that had been the case, a law enforcement officer, who was present in the restaurant, should have stepped in to prevent such an action, which did not occur.

At 10:20, Gulley stated that the statute which Huff allegedly violated necessitates the coordination of “three or more persons gathering in acts of violence.”

Gulley then repeated his argument against Huff’s having engaged in “commerce,” as stated in Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.  He stated that Huff’s having brought a legally-owned handgun into another state did not constitute commercial activity.

At 32:00 in the recording, McLaurin was asked whether or not a “conspiracy” had existed among Huff, Fitzpatrick and others to commit violence. McLaurin claimed that Huff “had been planning this takeover of the courthouse for weeks, that he had gone up to Madisonville and consulted with Fitzpatrick; he had sent text messages back saying, ‘We’re going to do citizens’ arrests today…’ he’s coordinating a bunch of other individuals…I think given all of that evidence that’s in the record of this concerted activity over several weeks, trying to put this plan together, I think…the evidence showed that…[inaudible]…planning.”

Both Huff and Fitzpatrick have stated that there was no “plan.”

On Friday, January 31, The Post & Email spoke with Fitzpatrick about McLaurin’s allegations.  Fitzpatrick responded that he had met Darren Huff for the second time on April 7, 2010, when he and a former Marine, William Looman, had asked to meet with him to discuss his court-martial of 1990.  Fitzpatrick had just spent five days in jail during which he refused food and water to protest what he saw an his unlawful arrest after attempting to carry out the citizen’s arrest of the grand jury foreman.  Although on April 7, he had gone to a local hospital for treatment following his ordeal and was not feeling well, he agreed to meet with Looman and Huff in Madisonville later in the day for with only about 45-minutes notice. The three men for a brief time later in the day over coffee. There was no discussion or conversation regarding anything to do with Tuesday, 20 April 2010.

Fitzpatrick stated that he had no communication with Huff, Looman, or anyone else about the events in Madisonville or the date of his assignment hearing scheduled for the 20th.  He neither received nor sent any “text messages” with Huff, as claimed by McLaurin.

At Huff’s trial in October 2011, no evidence appearing on the record showed text or phone communication between Huff and Fitzpatrick.  “This is them continuing in the perpetration of The Madisonville Hoax,” Fitzpatrick said.  The United States Attorney’s office is blocking me from going to a federal grand jury to tell them what the U.S. attorney’s office has been doing.  It’s got to be recorded that there’s a violent reaction from me about my name coming up again on Thursday and being named once more contemporaneously as a ‘domestic terrorist’ in the days leading up to the Super Bowl, when you have this alert going on throughout the country.  Buses are being stopped, trains are being stopped and and checked, snipers are being set up in the stadium; you have F-16s on the tarmac on an Alert 5 status ready to launch…Obama is creating an environment which is going to be used to take over this country by armed force.  That’s what he’s doing here.  He’s getting people used to the idea.  Look at what happened in Boston – at the Tsarnaev kid; they’re going after the death penalty for him.  What did he do?  He let off a bomb in Boston, MA. That’s what I’m accused of having attempted.”

He continued:

I’m waiting right now for federal agents to come knocking at my door at any minute.  This man named me again on Thursday in participating in a plot to blow up buildings, to harm people, to destroy property and people.  He’s named me again as a ‘domestic terrorist’ in this environment in which we are right now as I have described it.  There are U.S. attorneys licking their chops looking to find for a way to come and pick me up any second.  I’m still named as a ‘sovereign citizen…’ this training campaign is still using my name and my picture in this outrageous campaign which is as much of an invention as was the declaration that came out of the U.S. attorney’s office yesterday.

In the meantime, they are blocking people who know what happened that day from coming out and reporting the truth.  That’s significant. While they know that there is a truth to be reported about what happened that day, they are telling lies which are continuing to grow because they are blocking me from getting in to a grand jury.  Jeff Cunningham is as guilty of that as any other person.  I told Jeff Cunningham months ago, probably a year ago, that I’m named as a domestic terrorist.  He said, “Oh, pshaw.  You’re kidding.”  That was in November 2012, so when I came back in November 2013, I had a copy of the TIME Magazine article to show him.  I still didn’t get in.

I’ll go back for time #6 in February if I’m not locked up by then.

In the meantime, it’s going to be really interesting to see what the appellate court here in Tennessee comes up with by way of their ruling because they cannot say at this point that the jury system acted properly in how they handled my case when the attorney general for the state of Tennessee has publicly declared, “Walt’s right.  These foremen are not jurors.”  And I don’t think the U.S. Attorney’s office got that memo.  Instead, they’re continuing the hoax.  They’re continuing in a manufactured fiction.

I’m living in the twilight zone.  I can’t get people in my own community to pay any attention to this.  No one.  I’ve tried.

This has to stop.  My name has not come up as it did on Thursday ever before.  Now, four years later, here we are.

Am I able to get into a grand jury and say that this U.S. attorney lied on Thursday?  No?  Why?  Because the U.S. attorney’s office has expressly denied, in writing, permission for me to appear in front of a grand jury and tell the grand jury that these u.s. attorneys are engaged themselves in a plot against veterans.  Operation Vigilant EagleSovereign Citizens.  This is part of an ongoing plot, and it does trace back to the Obama treason complaint for sure.  There has to be a reaction to what happened on Thursday.  There are people who can give yup the Madisonville Hoax for what it was.

The Post & Email asked, “The NSA has been collecting all phone records.  Where are the phone records and email exchanges in which you were allegedly planning something?”

There’s nothing.  I do not know what Darren Huff’s court transcript says, but there’s nothing that leads me to believe that there is anything in Darren Huff’s transcript which says that I was an active planning participant in planning this event that was supposed to happen and got thwarted by the overwhelming presence of law enforcement.  It’s all rubbish.

I’m reaching out to so many people.  I get so many emails, and it’s like chickens running around, people herding cats.  OK, people:  focus.  FOCUS.  And by the way, the government is trying to cement this precedent in place, and they’re using my name to do it.  This has got to stop.  It’s going to take a lot of people to stand up against this and say, “Stop!!”

What they said on Thursday is a lie. If I don’t stand up against this, then it becomes something that people believe, including law enforcement in my own community.

Let me re-emphasize and restate this.  When Darren and Bill left in the late morning or early afternoon of the 7th of April 2010, I had no contact with anybody else at all.  I didn’t call Bill Looman.  There was a period of time when my internet service was turned off.  I don’t remember if that was the case when I got out of jail on April 6, 2010 or not.  But I didn’t send any emails to anybody:  I didn’t send any to you, to Tim, to Bill…I was dark and quiet.  I had no communication with Darren Huff and had no idea he was coming on the 20th.

On April 20, I was searched going into the courtroom.  I was unarmed.  The first question before the search was conducted, is “Do you have business in this courtroom today?”  If the answer was no, the people who were there at the door were sent outside into the rain. They didn’t get searched; they weren’t let in.  Another observer was searched, and there are witnesses to that.  The hoax continues.

The U.S. Attorney claimed that I was actively planning with Darren.  He connected me directly to Darren.  The same thing happened in the Tennessee court:  Darren was connected to me:  We were “planning this together.”  But there was no evidence.

There was no communication between me and anybody between 1 April 2010, the day I was locked up, and the 20th, the day of the hearing.  Bill Looman and Darren showed up on the 7th, as I’ve explained, to talk about the court-martial.  They came; they left, and I didn’t have any contact with anybody else before that, when I was in jail, or after that, when I was home.

I do not text…anybody.  I do not do text messages.

I just showed up on the 20th for the hearing, and there was a massive police presence.  I was as surprised as anyone else was.  When I was in jail in 2011, I found out that prisoners had set up pole cameras the day before the hearing, but I hadn’t known that at the time.  In fact, the day that these pole cameras was set up, the 19th of April 2010, I wasn’t in jail, so I would not have known that the Monroe County sheriff had been put upon by the federal government to use inmates to go out and set up pole cameras.  I wasn’t in jail myself; I didn’t know this was going on.

There is no testimonial evidence that Darren was at the R. Beecher Witt government building because Darren was never there.  Darren was not there; Daren was notarmed.  Who cares what he was thinking?  He didn’t do anything that was illegal.

I can guarantee you that had Darren been carrying a weapon with him on his person in Madisonville, TN, he would have been stopped, he probably would have been thrown to the ground if he hadn’t gone to the ground on his own volition; he would have been disarmed by either state or federal agents or both; he would have been arrested in Madisonville that day, as anybody else carrying a gun would have been approached and disarmed.  Law enforcement officials knew Darren’s weapons had been secured.

Every time I’ve been arrested, it’s been in support of The Madisonville Hoax.  These threats are meant to deflect attention away from what we’ve discovered by way of government corruption in eastern Tennessee and the rest of the state.  It was brought up in a habeas corpus petition which, to this day has not been answered, “Let Fitzpatrick go; he’s committed no crime.”  We have completely quashed any notion that any of these crimes of which I have been accused were passed through a proper jury system that begin with a proper grand jury.  So all of these false imprisonments are to support the Madisonville Hoax, which is continuing as recently as Thursday.  With what this U.S. attorney said, they’re trying to get me arrested again on a federal charge.  You know, as a U.S. attorney, when you make a comment like that in public, then you’ve just let the cat out of the bag that “We’re still working on a case against Fitzpatrick.”

I’ve gone to them to report crime; no one has ever come to me.  In that exchange of 10 March 2010 I told FBI Agent Mike Harrell, the head of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, that nothing happened.  It was all a hoax.  They have planted in the minds of the three judges on Thursday – illegally – that a U.S. Navy retired was actively planning with another navy veteran to come into Madisonville, to commit acts of domestic terrorism, to commit acts of violence to injure people if not kill them.  In the meantime, it’s the same U.S. attorney’s office that’s preventing me from walking in to a grand jury and explaining what really happened.

Until we get a large number of people, this is going to continue.  This has got to stop.

Editor’s Note:  Many in the media have noted that the Obama regime appears hostile to veterans.  The Rutherford Institute has reported that over the last several years, veterans have been falsely accused arrested, intimidated, and harassed by government agents.  Obama’s de facto government has sought to block veterans seeking treatment for PTSD from owning firearms.

“THEY ARE NOT OPERATING UNDER THE LAW”

It has recently been discovered that there is no appointing order for a man who allegedly served as foreman of the Monroe County grand jury for at least 20 years, nor any evidence that he was ever sworn in as required by the Tennessee Rules of Criminal Procedure.  No identification for Gary Pettway can be produced by the Monroe County clerk’s office. The alleged current grand jury foreman’s first name is misspelled, perhaps purposely.  Court personnel are aware of it, and similar “errors” have occurred multiple times in the Tenth Judicial District of Tennessee.

Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers - Chairman, Senate Juriciary Committee

From: Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III

To: Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers, Chairman Senate Judiciary Committee

Subject: The Dictatorship of the Judiciary! The take over of Tennessee Grand Juries!

Distribution: Wide

(1) Tennessee judges have taken over Tennessee government operations in myriad acts of Treason. The judges are enacting their own laws from the bench. The judges order prosecutors and sheriffs to enforce judicial mandates.

(2) Tennessee Judges ignore laws passed by the Tennessee legislature and signed by the governor.

(3) On 13 June 2008 Governor Phil Bredesen signed into Tennessee law a bill setting jury service term-limits.

(4) On 3 December 2008 Tennessee Judge Amy Armstrong Reedy personally appointed Mr. Gary D. Pettway into Pettway’s 19th and 20th consecutive years as a juror in the Monroe County Grand Jury.

(5) On 28 June 2010 Tennessee Judge Carroll L. Ross affirmed the law of the judiciary publicly declaring Gary Pettway has done a “great job” over the past twenty-years. Carroll Ross went on to say nothing was better settled in Tennessee State than the Dictatorship of the Judiciary. Ross said out loud that the Dictatorship of the Judiciary would appoint Pettway into the Monroe County Grand Jury for fifty-years if it so desired!

(6) On Tuesday, 5 October 2010 Tennessee Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood affirmed the Dictatorship of the Judiciary by openly and publicly allowing Gary Pettway to remain on the Monroe County Grand Jury. Jon Kerry Blackwood further allowed jurors throughout the State of Tennessee to remain on County Grand Juries aware the Tennessee statute setting jury-service term limits is being outrageously and violently disobeyed.

(7) In Roane County Tennessee it’s reported Mr. Snow stands as a permanent, professional juror on the Grand Jury for 23 (twenty-three) consecutive years. Mr. Joel Reilly stands in the McMinn County Grand Jury for 6 (six) years in a row. Professional juror Ms. Kay Redfern preceded Reilly in the McMinn County Grand Jury for 10 (ten) years running. There is a report from Hamilton County Tennessee of a juror in the Grand Jury for fifteen (15) continuous years. And then we have professional, permanent juror Gary Pettway in the Monroe County since 4 January 1990 (20-years).

(8) Jon Kerry Blackwood, rather than obeying Tennessee State law, relied upon at least five rulings from a Tennessee judge’s bench that in the extant Dictatorship of the Judiciary, the law of the judges holds supremacy over Tennessee State statue. Attorney James H. Stutts (in the name of 10th Judicial District Attorney General Steve Bebe (former judge)) reminded Blackwood that in Tennessee State, it’s the judges who rule unconstrained.

(9) Just weeks ago in her operation of the Dictatorship of the Judiciary, Judge Amy Armstrong Reedy denied Mr. Samuel Whitting trial by jury in the presence of a court reporter. Reedy then ordered the court reporter out of the courtroom. After the court reporter was gone and in the absence of a jury, Reedy ruled on Mr. Whitting’s case robbing Mr. Whitting the protection of a jury. I’m told just moments ago, Amy Reedy has caused the issuance of Mr. Samuel Whitting’s arrest warrant. (Note: Samuel Whitting is fighting a speeding ticket – traveling at 79 mph in a traffic zone where the posted speed limit is 70 mph).

(10) Ms. Angela Davis served in Monroe County on trial jury duty between 1 January and 30 June 2009. Under Tennessee State statute Ms. Davis is prohibited from serving on any jury in any part of Tennessee State until 1 July 2011. Gary Pettway’s Monroe County Grand Jury term ended last year on 31 December 2009. Mr. Pettway is lawfully prohibited from serving on another Tennessee jury until 1 January 2012. And yet Davis and Pettway both sit on this year’s 2010 Monroe County Grand Jury! We know this much only: Amy Armstrong Reedy hand picked both Davis and Pettway as jurors!

(11) The take over of Tennessee County Grand Juries was openly and publicly reported to U.S. Senator Bob Corker in the early evening of Tuesday, 5 October 2010. Senator Corker’s staffers were there. Monroe County General Sessions Court Judge J. Reed Dixon was in the audience. Staff district assistant Maxine O’Dell Gernert was present in place of U.S. Representative John Duncan. Tennessee State Representative Jimmy Matlock was there Tuesday night. There was to be sure a press and police presence.

(12) Before Tuesday evening the judicial take over of the Tennessee Grand Juries was reported to you! The Treason was reported to every Tennessee legislator. Every one! The judicial stacking of juries was reported to Governor Bredesen, State Attorney General Cooper and to the Tennessee State Supreme Court. The crime of jury-tampering is reported to every law enforcement agency you can think to name.

(13) Not a single agency claims jurisdiction to enforce Tennessee law as it goes to removing jurors from juries wherein the jurors exceed term limits. Wherein judges are discovered stacking those juries.

(14) Citizen efforts to enforce the law were met (are being met) by armed resistance. You can read about how this has worked out elsewhere. Or you can consult with staff assistant Wilkerson.

(15) For all of this, Pettway and Davis still sit at this moment on the 2010 Monroe County Grand Jury!

(16) Carroll L. Ross, operating as Ross does in the Dictatorship of the Judiciary, ordered me on 28 June 2010 not to report these matters to you (or anyone) under threat of arrest and other punishments. Ross doesn’t want folks who’ve discovered the judicial Dictatorship to report to authorities.

(17) District Attorney General Steve Bebe repeated and extended Ross’ threat on 11 August 2010. James Stutts acted as Bebe’s mouthpiece.

(18) There was once a time when issues such as those brought to your attention again today could be taken directly to a County Grand Jury and reported there. It’s because judges could not survive the scrutiny of a community Grand Jury that the judges kidnapped Tennessee’s Grand Juries. You must understand the in the state and federal Constitutions we find the voice and power of the people in the construction, the assembly and the operation of a Grand Jury. It is the operation of a Grand Jury that makes the United States a Representative Republic!

(19) The Dictatorship of the Judiciary replaced Tennessee Grand Juries with a government organ called the Court of the Judiciary. Said another way: There exists no judicial oversight.

(20) Forcibly resisting constitutional government thereby replacing that government with a rival, unconstitutional government is one text book definition for TREASON!

(21) What are you prepared to do?

Corrupt Federal Judges and Tennessee Officials Commit Obstruction of Justice, Go Unpunished

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Sunday, December 29, 2013 @ 12:05 PM In National |

“THEY NEED THIS CONVICTION TO STAND”

by CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) and Post & Email Editor Sharon Rondeau 

(Dec. 29, 2013) — [Editor’s Note:  On Thursday, federal prisoner Darren Wesley Huff informed The Post & Email and others that an appeal in his case has been filed and will be heard on January 30, 2014, at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, OH.

The attorney who will be representing Huff is Gerald Gulley of Knoxville.

Huff was convicted in October 2011 of “transporting firearms across state lines with the intent to cause a civil disorder” after false reports were made to local authorities in Monroe County, TN that he planned to take over the courthouse” on April 20, 2010.

Initially, the trial jury produced a verdict of “not guilty” on one count and was hung on the second count, but Judge Thomas Varlan instructed them to “try again,” after which the jury pronounced Huff guilty on the one count.

An eyewitness, Bill Looman, who spent all of April 20, 2010 with Huff, provided a sworn affidavit affirming that Huff was not armed after he parked and exited his truck in Madisonville, TN.  Looman stated that because would-be observers arriving for the hearing for Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III that day were barred from entering the courthouse, he and Huff went to a restaurant across the street to have breakfast. Looman maintained that Huff was not where the government claimed he was in order to effect the alleged “courthouse takeover.”

Looman and other eyewitnesses were not called to Huff’s trial, where Tennessee Tenth Judicial District officials perjured themselves, including Gary Pettway, who had served as grand jury foreman for 28 straight years under Judge Carroll Lee Ross.  Huff’s public defender, H. Scott Green, did not call Fitzpatrick, Looman or any other eyewitness in Huff’s defense even though Fitzpatrick was physically at the courthouse waiting to be called to testify.

Ross had orchestrated Fitzpatrick’s arrest after Fitzpatrick attempted a citizen’s arrest on Pettway on April 1, 2010 for over-serving his term as a juror according to Tennessee state code.  The April 20 hearing was an assignment hearing which Fitzpatrick understood would take only a few minutes.

Following the April 1 incident, Fitzpatrick was indicted by the Monroe County grand jury for having intimidated Gary Pettway, who was identified as “a juror.”  Fitzpatrick was also charged with riot, intimidating a juror, and disrupting a meeting.  In September of this year, the state of Tennessee clarified that the foreman of a Tennessee grand jury is not a juror, but rather, a court-appointed public employee.  However, the foreman routinely votes with the grand jurors as the 13th person, thereby infusing state influence into a process which is expected to be driven by citizens acting as a buffer between government and the people in accordance with the Fifth Amendment.

Tennessee state code requires that 13 randomly-selected individuals comprise a grand jury, not 12 plus a representative of the state’s interests.

Huff was also charged by the Monroe County with intimidating “a juror” for having video-taped the citizen’s arrest carried out by Fitzpatrick.  Now, the state of Tennessee maintains that Pettway was not a juror.

In Monroe County, Huff took a plea of “no contest” to the charges, but a federal case was brought against him based on a faulty FBI affidavit signed by Special Agent Mark Van Balen which stated that Huff and Fitzpatrick were armed and had planned to “take over” the Monroe County courthouse on April 20.  Van Balen cited unnamed “officials” upon whose statements he relied to produce the affidavit, which served as probable cause for Huff’s arrest and jailing by federal authorities.

Over the last two years, Fitzpatrick has gathered sworn and unsworn statements from eyewitnesses which say that no one in Madisonville was armed on April 20, 2010 and that no clashes with law enforcement were observed, despite the heavy presence of local police, FBI and TBI agents, a SWAT team, bomb-sniffing dogs and Tennessee Highway Patrolmen throughout the area.

Some who attended the hearing but were not allowed in to the courtroom reported being audited by the IRS afterward.  This past spring, the IRS admitted to having targeted groups perceived as politically opposed to the regime’s policies.  Within the last several weeks, two men who have voiced their objections to Obamacare and the fallout of insurance policies’ cancellation have reported that they are being audited by the IRS.

The Post & Email attempted to obtain documentation on the massive deployment of law enforcement on April 20, 2010 but was denied on several levels in which the government cited “privacy” concerns.  The Obama regime had promised “the toughest ethics rules and toughest transparency rules of any administration in history.”

Obama has not explained why the long-form birth certificate posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011 is a forgery.  On March 17, 2009, Fitzpatrick had filed a criminal complaint of treason against Obama, naming him as a foreign-born domestic enemy.  A criminal investigation has revealed that the image is a forgery, that Obama may be foreign-born and that it is likely that he was not born in Hawaii, as he claims.  According to lead investigator Mike Zullo, the fraudulent image was posted “with the intent to deceive.”

Mainstream media have consistently reported that Huff was pursuing a treason complaint or removal of office against Obama, which was false.  In a taped interview with The Post & Email in 2011, Huff stated, “That is not my issue.”

After Huff’s trial and just before sentencing in May 2012, Varlan was presented with evidence that several government officials’ testimony had been tainted, but that evidence was ignored.  In accordance with the Obama regime’s declaration that Second Amendment supporters are “militia extremists,” U.S. Attorney William C. Killian, an Obama appointee, “commended the verdict and said he hoped it would send a strong message to those who attempt to take the law into their own hands.”

Killian continued, “Under our federal Constitution and statutes Mr. Huff and others like him can talk or write about their anti-government views. They cannot arm themselves and make threats to arrest public officials and takeover government buildings. The core of our democratic system is to allow peaceful protest, but prohibit armed threats to those who serve our government. His conviction is a great achievement by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Theodore and Mackie and several local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Their cooperative efforts resulted in this conviction.”

Since Huff’s conviction, the corruption of public officials in the Tenth Judicial District of Tennessee has become public:

  • One of the officials named as a criminal by both Huff and Fitzpatrick is District Attorney General R. Steven Bebb, who is reported to under consideration to be removed from his post by the Tennessee General Assembly for professional misconduct and possible criminal behavior after the attorney general failed to find Bebb guilty of crimes.

  • Contrary to the indictments issued against Fitzpatrick and Huff, Pettway has been officially declared by Tennessee Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Justice Division, Kyle Hixson, not to have ever been “a juror.”

  • Judge Carroll Ross is retiring after numerous incidents of misconduct have been exposed by Fitzpatrick, Huff, The Post & Email, and Appellate Judge Thomas M. Tipton, who reversed Ross’s convictions against George Raudenbush on the grounds that Ross denied him his constitutional right to counsel in 2011.

  • The grand juries which have issued indictments against the above defendants and all others over an unknown number of years have been illegally composed of 12 citizens, some of whom were not chosen randomly and served consecutive terms in violation of Tennessee state law.

  • Assistant District Attorney General Paul D. Rush, who prosecuted Fitzpatrick in the case now on appeal, has been cited for ethics violations by the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility after Rush specifically identified The Post & Email as lacking in “ethics” and “integrity.”

  • Fitzpatrick’s defense attorney, Van Irion of Knoxville, has just announced that he is running next year for Criminal Court Judge against Amy Armstrong Reedy, who Fitzpatrick named as a criminal for hand-picking jurors for the 2012 term in open court, a fact Irion presented during the appeals hearing for Fitzpatrick on November 20.

Since discovering massive corruption within the Monroe County grand jury in December 2009, Fitzpatrick has attempted to enlist the assistance of the Knoxville FBI, the TBI, local police, sheriff’s department, and district attorney general’s office, but all have proven either corrupt themselves or unwilling to open an investigation.

The McMinn County grand jury is similarly compromised, with a judge-appointed foreman who exerts influence over the 12 grand jurors but denies that he has engaged in obstruction of justice even when he himself is the subject of a criminal complaint.

Fitzpatrick has attempted to bring the exculpatory evidence relating to Huff’s case as well as the corruption of Tenth Judicial District officials to the federal grand juries sitting in Knoxville but has been blocked by Killian, Magistrate H. Bruce Guyton, and Varlan.  Here, Fitzpatrick explains how Guyton was compromised in his actions on Huff’s case and that grand juries at both the state and federal levels have become tools of the government, not of the people.]

Three years ago, I could have walked into a grand jury either at the state level or federal level and talked to some degree about the suspicions we had about the scope and operation of grand juries then, pointing directly at Mr. Pettway and saying “He’s been there for 28 years; there’s something wrong here.  I’m willing to work with you folks in the grand jury to get to the bottom of this.”  And you know what happened.

Almost three years ago, I tried to get in front of the federal grand jury directly.  We knew that that Darren had falsely set up, falsely accused, and falsely arrested.  There were two federal grand juries sitting at that time in Knoxville.  I contacted the jury coordinator, Helen Spears, who sent me a handbook on the federal grand juries.   I sent in a submission on March 16, and I sent a second on April 7.

Jury 1 16 Mar 2011

Jury 2 16 Mar 2011

Jury 1 7 Apr 2011

Jury 2 7 Apr 2011

Jury 1 8 Apr 2011

Jury 2 8 April 2011

These were mailed before I got Guyton’s letter.  These three mailings were blocked.  The 16 March mailing, which was a challenge to the grand juries, was returned unopened three weeks later.  In the meantime, I sent in two more:  the ones from the 7th of April and 8th of April.  Those were not returned; he kept those.

I sent copies of the other mailings to the U.S. attorney and to Richard Lambert, who was the special agent then in charge of the Knoxville FBI.

And the other submission crossed in them mail with his letter back to me saying, “You can’t petition the grand jury directly.  You have to go through me, the judge, the court; or you have to go through the U.S. attorney.  He wrote that in the letter citing the case of New Haven Grand Jury from 1985.

6 April 2011 H.Bruce Guyton ltr

What’s significant is that H. Bruce Guyton – and I didn’t know it at the time; I found out later – was the sitting judge in Darren’s case.  He was making rulings on Darren’s case from the bench.  Later on, I thought Guyton was going to be the trial judge, but it turned out to be Thomas Varlan.  Darren had issues with the court; he was filing submission to the court, and they were all going to H. Bruce Guyton.

Guyton was preventing me from getting information into the grand juries about Darren and which eventually was about Guyton and other people in the federal government to include U.S. Attorney William C. Killian and Richard L. Lambert from the FBI. As time passes, we have learned more about what happened on April 20, 2010, and I’m still collecting information from people who were in Madisonville that day.  It took me a couple of years, frankly.  So we’re still putting together a picture from witnesses as to what happened, but I had enough to start a process for the grand juries to take a look at what was going on in the Tenth Judicial District.  Guyton blocked me from doing that for no reason.  He said, “I’m not going to give you permission; I’m deferring to the U.S. Attorney.”

All these mailings went to Guyton, Lambert and William C. Killian, the U.S. attorney in Knoxville, and they probably just threw all of this information away. Other mailings I sent after that went directly to Killian, and I got nothing back from him.  In fact, the only letter I got from his office said, “Don’t send us anything else; it will be thrown away.”

14 JUNE 2013 WILLIAM C. KILLIAN letter

This has been the attitude of the federal government from day one.  As time has passed, you know how much information we have come into possession of regarding the Madisonville Hoax, who did what, the perjury at Darren’s trial, the revelation here that is just days old that the grand jury foreman is not a juror.  If we had known then what we know now, Darren would not be in a federal prison. One of the ways that we could have known back in the spring of 2011 is if a federal grand jury had picked this up and started asking questions of the people in the local community about “How is it that the law says that a juror can’t be in the jury for more than one term, but the foreman serves multiple terms?”  The grand jury could have started asking questions which the appellate court now has asked in my case since.  And the state has now come in and they’ve been forced into a position where they have to admit that the grand jury foreman is not a juror.

I believe that if Guyton had allowed me to go forward with what we knew then, the grand jury could have discovered this on their own before Darren’s case ever came to trial.  It wouldn’t have taken them long to start calling people into the federal jury room in Knoxville and start putting these people under oath and having people such as Gary Pettway explain under oath how he had been in that job for 28 years in a row.  But that didn’t happen, and the reason it didn’t happen was because of Bruce Guyton’s obstruction and that of the FBI and William C. Killian.

The reason we’re talking about this now is that I just learned that Darren Huff has a hearing on 30 January 2014, and we can’t seem to get any of this information into the court that is hearing the case.  We’re being obstructed in the same way that Bruce Guyton obstructed me almost three years ago.  One of the reasons they want Darren in prison is that they successfully prosecuted him for a “thought crime.”

An article written by Jamie Satterfield three years ago on Friday and updated three years yesterday discusses the rulings that H. Bruce Guyton handed down in the case of Darren Wesley Huff, and they went to whether or not he should be locked up or wear an ankle bracelet. Bruce Guyton is the guy who blocked me from getting in front of a grand jury and talking about the case over which he was presiding.

He didn’t know what I was going to bring to the grand jury, but after follow-on submissions to the U.S attorney, which I made and were not answered, I went to the FBI and met with Special Agent Roxane West for three hours.  I met with her, and nothing happened.

If nothing else, it’s important that we get this information out publicly.

Bruce Guyton could have been responsible for Darren’s being released.  There was a federal judge obstructing justice.

We had a lot back in the day, and the juries should have called me in, but they did not.

The Post & Email asked Fitzpatrick if he believes there is anyone else who could be approached with the information he tried to present to the federal grand juries, to which he responded:

Darren Huff has an eyewitness to his whereabouts all day long on April 20, 2010 who was not called to the stand in Darren’s defense.  Darren was set up by his own defense attorney.   I was there to testify on Darren’s behalf.  Nobody who could have squared away this jury would have been able to convict Darren, because he was not physically ever at the place where the FBI said he committed a crime that day.  If all we have is Bill Looman’s sworn statement, then we have all that we need to get Darren released.  We have so much more.

How do we get this in front of a judge for January 30?  That is a question I can’t answer.

In going back over this information, I’ve come up with this other fact that a federal judge, H. Bruce Guyton, obstructed Darren’s getting a fair hearing.  He could have prevented all of this from happening to Darren then.  That’s another dynamic here that the appeals judges need to know about:  that a federal judge has committed a crime.

Darren has been locked up as a political prisoner as we’ve said before.

We have this battery of information; it’s a lot, and it’s powerful.  We can prove that we knew enough back in the day to exonerate Darren and that we were physically obstructed by the FBI, the U.S. attorney’s office, and by a federal judge who was hearing Darren’s case at the time.  That’s pretty big.

We have it in writing that anything I might send to Killian is going to be thrown away.  So I tried to go to a state grand jury here about ten days ago to raise up the issue that way, and I was turned away again.  You remember my telling you about waiting hours to get in and then having McMinn County grand jury foreman Jeff Cunningham be the one who blocked me from getting in when he’s named in the complaint.

It reminds me of the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany…it’s the government that I was trained to fight against.  It is the government that all military personnel are trained to fight against.  When they taken an oath to the Constitution, this is the domestic enemy from within.  We’re seeing it firsthand.  I can’t make it any more plain to people that grand juries have been taken over by the government than to demonstrate to them what happened at the federal level which is the letter that says, “You can’t get in here by any means.”  The fact that Bruce Guyton obstructed this and it has never come to the fore to correct the mistake; we’ve tried to get in front of Thomas Varlan to get me in front of a grand jury; Varlan hasn’t cooperated.  And now you see where at the state level, the people are not able to critically think through what it is they’re supposed to be doing.  Frankly, I don’t know that they know what they’re supposed to be doing.  They see a guy like Cunningham and say, “Hey, Jeff, now what?”

That’s the problem we face.  We need juries that we can depend upon to stand up and to take back our government. Look at all of the efforts that have been made to get this information in front of a grand jury, and to have done that would have completely cleared Darren a long time.  It would have blocked Darren from ever being prosecuted in the first place.  This is all being done with purposeful intent.

This information was provided to Scott Green, who did not defend Darren.

The judge who was hearing Darren’s case blocked me from coming in to talk to the grand jury about the case.  Darren could have been exonerated.  It was as if Guyton was preventing Darren from defending himself.

If all we had was Bill Looman’s eyewitness testimony about Darren’s physical presence that day and the fact that Darren was not armed in Madisvonville, TN, that should have been enough.  Nobody who testified that Darren was there that day had to prove that he was there that day.  It was all cops who said that, and they committed perjury.  They also had Gary Pettway come in and commit perjury by representing himself as a “real grand jury foreman juror.”

Darren’s release is just the first of thousands of dominoes which start to fall when you take a look at the larger picture, and the federal government is doing everything it can do to block Darren from proving his innocence.  The people who are involved in the obstruction involves the federal judge who was hearing Darren’s case at the time, who had a conflict of interest in Darren’s case and was ruling on the case after the submissions were sent by me to Guyton, who was involved in this all the way up until Darren’s trial.

Guyton could have let me in.  Why didn’t he?  Killian could have let me in, and he didn’t.  It’s because they need this conviction to stand.

Exclusive: Tennessee Tenth Judicial District Public Defender Speaks with The Post & Email

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Tuesday, December 24, 2013 @ 10:08 AM In States | 

“A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO MAKE BOND”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Dec. 24, 2013) — On Monday, Tenth Judicial District Senior Public Defender Richard Hughes contacted The Post & Email regarding George Raudenbush, whose convictions and subsequent incarceration have been reported in detail previously.

Raudenbush was denied his constitutional right to defense counsel by Judge Carroll Lee Ross, who announced this past August that he would retire in August 2014 just before Raudenbush advised The Post & Email in a letter that the convictions were in the process of being reversed.

An opinion by an appeals court judge, Thomas M. Tipton, affirms Raudenbush’s statements.

Hughes explained that Tipton set the bond for Raudenbush at $25,000 but that Hughes was able to argue successfully that it be reduced to $10,000, 10% of which would be required to effect Raudenbush’s release pending the new trial.  Hughes added that at times, a bondsman will accept something less than 10%.

On Friday evening, Hughes asked that “family and friends” of Raudenbush consider raising the bond amount if they are able so that Raudenbush could be released from prison before Christmas.  During our interview, The Post & Email told Hughes that a reader had offered to donate $100 toward the $1,000 needed, after which Hughes explained that on Monday, he spoke with the Tennessee Department of Corrections, which informed him that a “mandate” authorizing Raudenbush’s release had not yet been received.

“He has the constitutional right to make bond,” Hughes said.

When The Post & Email asked Atty. Hughes to explain how the convictions were reversed, he told us:

The trial court had appointed the public defender to represent George.  He had filed for post-conviction relief from his conviction and sentence, and Judge Ross had appointed my office to represent him on appeal, which is called a late appeal because George didn’t know to file a timely appeal because he’s not an attorney.  I got personally involved and did the appellate brief myself.  The basis for the appeal was the violation of George’s Sixth Amendment right to counsel.  He did have a right to appointed counsel, and Judge Ross violated that by not appointing an attorney at trial or even during the sentencing phase of his case.

There is case law where a person can forfeit his right to counsel, and it requires pretty extreme conduct on the part of the defendant.  There are a whole lot of cases where the court has ruled that a person has forfeited his right to a lawyer by his actions, but the conduct has to be pretty egregious.  There are cases where the defendant will not work with his attorney, sometimes even make threats to the attorney, won’t listen to their advice, refuse to meet with them, and then there are cases where that attorney will be relieved and another lawyer appointed, and then the same thing happens and the court ruled that the defendant is trying to delay justice in his case to avoid being tried by not cooperating with counsel.  In those cases, the court can rule that you’ve forfeited your right to a lawyer by your words and actions.

Tipton, in the majority opinion, said that nothing that George did rose to the level where he had forfeited his right to an attorney, so Judge Ross violated his right to counsel.  Basically, the judge should have made a decision as to whether or not George was indigent.  There was never a hearing- I’ve been a public defender a long time, and my understanding is that when a person requests it, the judge has to have a hearing to determine indigence.  Because of George’s religious views, he refused to swear an oath as to the information contained in the affidavit of indigence when he applied for the public defender.  Judge Ross said that because he wouldn’t swear to it, he wouldn’t consider it.

The Post & Email said, “But you can affirm, can’t you?” to which Hughes answered, “You can affirm.”

The court of appeals said that that was not sufficient – that because he didn’t want to swear to the information enclosed in no way forfeited his right to counsel.  The way I understand the posture of George’s case, he has to come back to Monroe County once the mandate is in; he’ll return to the county jail; he’ll appear back before the trial court, and my office would have to be appointed.  There would still have to be again the determination that George is indigent for an appointment of counsel.  So right now, this minute, I don’t represent George Raudenbush for the new trial on those charges.  I represented him on the appeal; we won; so right now, he’s back where he was before he was ever tried.  He doesn’t have a public defender; he obviously can apply for a public defender, and I would imagine that things will be a little different.  If he qualifies, my office will be appointed and George can have a trial.

I know he doesn’t want to be tried again; he doesn’t think he should be tried again.  But the state can try him.  They did not vacate, although there are situations where they vacate and the judge may order that the case is over.  Here, the judge reversed the convictions and remanded the case back to the trial court.

I would think George would be back before Judge Ross, and I would think that with what he has gone through, either the public defender or the counsel of his choice will be making a motion to remove Judge Ross from hearing the case a second time.  I haven’t really thought through all of that, but I’m sure, based on the letters I have received from George, that would be one of his first requests.

“Would Judge Ross have any reason to refuse to recuse himself?”

 Judge Ross can say, “I’m not going to recuse myself.  The Court of Appeals reversed the conviction; I respect the Court of Appeals; whether I agree or do not agree with them, they’ve acted, and I have to honor the decision they’ve made, but there’s no basis for me to step aside.”  Or Judge Ross may decide, in the interest of justice based on what happened, from the perspective of George Raudenbush, that he should recuse himself.  There are situations where the judge is supposed to look at the case from the perspective of the defendant and whether or not the defendant thinks he can get a fair trial.  The judge in his own mind might say, “Well, of course I can be fair; there’s not the appearance of impropriety and I’ve done nothing inappropriate.” but he will recuse himself just as a precaution and say, “From the standpoint of the defendant, I understand that he may feel that the court can’t be fair, and I’m going to step aside.”

“It would certainly remove any doubts about Judge Ross’s intentions or feelings about the case.  He recused himself from one of CDR Fitzpatrick’s cases.”

The Post & Email then asked, “Are you able to speak at all to any corruption going on in the Monroe County criminal court or any of the Tenth Judicial District courts?

I know what you know, which is there has been a TBI investigation of the district attorney’s office, and the TBI released a report which I have not seen.  I’m not authorized to review that, but my understanding is that they’ve reached a determination that there was no crime committed.  There was a five-part series in The Chattanooga Times Free Press in which Judy Walton on the district attorney’s office and Drug Task Force.  TBI decided that there was no crime committed, but there’s still the open question as to whether or not there was any unethical conduct.

“Members of the both the Tennessee General Assembly’s House and Senate Judicial Committees are trying to remove Bebb from office.”

Yes, the first of the year, there’s a committee formed to determine whether or not to proceed with an ouster of the district attorney general.  When the General Assembly of Tennessee goes back into session in January, that committee is formed to make a determination. Obviously, I don’t know when that decision will be made or what the outcome will be, but I would imagine it will be made pretty quickly as to whether or not they are going to proceed.  My understanding is that that committee has had the chance to review the entire TBI investigative file.  All I know is what I’ve read, although I’m aware of certain things that have occurred.  Most of what I know is based on what was reported in The Chattanooga Times.

I know Mr. Fitzpatrick feels passionately that the grand jury system in east Tennessee is unethical.  I don’t know.  Some states don’t have a grand jury system to charge people.

“There are no grand juries here in Connecticut, where they were legislated away in 1983.”

I don’t know…they say that the grand jury is a buffer between the powers of the state, the district attorney and law enforcement; and other people say, “It’s just a rubber stamp for the district attorney’s office.”  I know there are differences of opinion on the necessity of a grand jury system.  I know Walt feels as if there’s wrongdoing in the grand jury, unethical conduct…To be honest with you, I haven’t really followed that issue.  I know what happened to Walter; I remember the charges, and I know he went through a trial.  I know it’s on appeal.  I talked to him and had a good conversation last week.  I know he feels strongly that the system that’s in effect in east Tennessee and in Monroe County is illegal, a violation of the law.  I know he feels strongly about that.  Obviously, there’s no case law at the present time to support that.  I don’t know how often that issue has been litigated.

The Post & Email then shared some of the experiences and research carried out by both Fitzpatrick and The Post & Email on Tennessee codes governing jury selection, including the District Attorneys General Conference website which says that a grand jury consists of 13 members of the community chosen randomly, from which the foreman is then chosen.  In Tennessee, judges have been choosing their own foreman and hiring him or her as a court employee by an unknown vetting process.

The Post & Email then extended an offer to set up a complimentary account for Atty. Hughes and invited him to read and refute any of our contentions either on or off the record, which Hughes accepted.

Regarding the bond for Raudenbush, Hughes said that he could not handle the money himself.  “A concerned friend or family member would have to be the one to collect and handle that,” he said.  He affirmed that until the written mandate is received by the Department of Corrections, Raudenbush could not be released even to a county jail.  “That mandate must be received before he can post bond,” Hughes said.

The Post & Email asked Hughes what his motivation was to put out the word about Raudenbush’s bond beginning on Friday evening given that he is technically not yet retained to handle the case, to which he responded:

I’ve been a public defender ever since I’ve been an attorney.  Since 1989, I’ve been in this office.  I feel strongly in the right to counsel.  I feel that I have a good office.  I certainly support my office and public defenders throughout the country.  It’s a tough job, it’s an important job, and it’s important to the administration of justice.  The Court of Appeals said that George’s right to counsel was violated, that he should have had an attorney through all proceedings that occurred in his case.  I don’t know George. We’ve corresponded by letter; I know he’d like to see me in person.  But I feel that based on what’s heard and the fact that the determination has been reversed, I would like to see him make bond.  He’s been in custody for two years; the Court of Appeals says it was an erroneous conviction, and I would hate to see him in jail for many more months when his case has been set aside.

It’s not every day you get a conviction reversed.  It’s very difficult, in my estimation.  I’ve appealed quite a few cases, and the large majority of convictions are affirmed on appeal, so when you have a reversal, it catches your attention, and certainly, anybody in George’s situation in which his convictions are reversed, I’d like for him to have the opportunity to be able to make bond.  He has a constitutional right to make bond, and that’s why I filed the motion.
